Compulsion to Repeat the Trauma

The Compulsion to Repeat the Trauma; EFT and Re-Enactment Case Study

A theory well described in Bessel A. van der Kolk’s 1989 article, The Compulsion to Repeat the Trauma; Re-enactment, Re-victimization and Masochism. He reports that when a person is exposed to trauma, especially in childhood, traumatic events such as those experienced in this man’s life; loss of a parent, exposure to suicide, violence to a school friend, and likely even more that may never be known, there is a profound impact on an individual’s psychological development and the resultant compulsive behavioral repetition may even be accompanied by a loss of conscious memory of the original traumas.

Working on Yourself

Working on Yourself is a Must if You Want to Succeed in the EFT Business

Working on Yourself is a Must if You Want to Succeed in the EFT Business. Without it, you will be less effective and more vulnerable to the emotional swings of vicarious or secondary trauma. A few weeks ago I had a very upset client come into my office to tell me off! I rent an office inside the East West Bookshop in Seattle one day each week. I began seeing clients there when I had a consistent client base in the city. (We advocate keeping overhead expenses low when you first start your EFT business.) My practitioner suite is a private room in the back of the store with sliding name plates on the door; one has my name on it and the other reads “in session”. My door is kept open between sessions.

Placebos, Nocebos and Stress Death

A study found that women that believed that they had a greater chance of having heart disease actually had a 3 times greater incidence of heart disease, after all other risk factors were ruled out. Another study found that close to 100% of those people that went for surgery with a “death wish” or wanting to reconnect with a loved one who had passed, would die in surgery or immediately afterwards. More evidence of nocebo validation was found

Belief Systems and Past Lives

EFT, Belief Systems and Past Lives

A 25 year long study on past life recall in children was performed at the University of Virginia. Most of these children had clear memories from age 2 to age 7. These kids from around the world had quite a few things in common including shared verifiable traits of the previous personality, memories of unnatural causes of death, recognition of relatives from the same family circle, and birth defects or marks corresponding with injuries experienced in those past lives.

EFT for Major Life Changes

EFT for Major Life Changes

Life is all about changing and learning. When we aren’t growing we can get hit with what I call the “cosmic two by four”. This can look like the breakup of a relationship, being diagnosed with a frightening disease or the loss of a job. That kind of journey into the depths of despair can also be seen as life throwing us into a full course correction.

Core Issues; When You Can’t See the Forest Through the Trees

There has been a lot written about the importance of finding a core issue. In fact, my ability to find core issues quickly is something people often say about my work. Core issues are your assumptions about the world and who you are. It’s often reflected in the way you behave. Often they are subconscious and hidden to you. One of the things I love about EFT is it’s ability to jog the subconscious mind and allow ideas and concepts to come to the forefront of consciousness. Core issues are the framework of your reality-

How Congruent Are You

How Congruent Are You Living Your Life?

EFT utilizes several concepts that are aspects of Neuro-Linguistic Programming, or NLP. One of the most important concepts, especially when working on life challenges, is the idea of congruence. Congruence could be defined as “rapport within oneself, or internal and external consistency.” Another simple way of thinking about it is the compliance between your ideal self and your actual self. I also think that the larger societal conversation about the need for authenticity is very resonant with this concept of congruence.

Healing the Pain of Being in Relationship With Someone Who Is Narcissistic or Borderline

Two of the most difficult issues to work with are that of two personality extremes that are on the same continuum, those that have been referred to as borderlines and narcissists and those who are in relationship with them. Obviously I do not treat these people for those conditions but sometimes they are referred to me by their mental health care professionals. I have heard from a number of therapists, that they choose to not work with individuals who acknowledge themselves as having these disorders. They feel that the odds of recovery and healing from these conditions are too low. My point of interest isn’t in helping those who are unfortunately plagued with these issues but with the people that are in relationship with them.
