3 What is Energy Psychology (EP)?
EP combines cognitive interventions (eg. imaginal exposure to traumatic memories or visualization of peak performance)… …with interventions to rebalance components of the human vibrational matrix (biofield, meridians, energy centers)… …to facilitate rapid positive individual change and optimal psychotherapeutic outcomes 3

4 The EP Family of Methods
ACEP Certification Workshop Strategies for Ethical Dilemmas in CEP The EP Family of Methods Interventions that focus on the Human Vibrational Matrix in order to assist with mental, emotional and psychospiritual issues are considered to be members of the Energy Psychology family of methods. There may be a half dozen or more energy systems comprising what is now called the “Human Vibrational Matrix.” Three of these systems are fairly well known: The multi-layered envelope surrounding and permeating the body (the biofield) Reservoirs of energy concentration (the chakras) Major pathways of energy flows (the meridians). Interventions that explicitly & deliberately work with any aspects of the Human Vibrational Matrix in order to assist with psychospiritual issues are considered to be members of the Energy Psychology family of methods.

7 Ötzi the Iceman A well-preserved natural mummy of a man from about 3300 BC, found in 1991 in a glacier of the Ötztal Alps. Among other curious features, Otzi [rhymes with “tootsie”] was found to have tattoos. The tattoos seemed odd, because they didn't seem particularly decorative—in fact, most of them would have been covered by clothing, so they clearly weren't for display purposes. As I understand the story, the scientists examining him got a bright idea and called in an acupuncturist. Without knowing anything else about the condition of the body, the acupuncturist pointed out that many of the tattoos corresponded to acupuncture points that would be used to treat certain physical complaints. Based on these points, he predicted that Otzi would be found to have specific ailments, including arthritis—even specified where. His predictions were confirmed. (continued on next slide) 7

8 Tattoos He had 57 tattoos, some of which were located on or near acupuncture points that coincide with the modern points that would be used to treat symptoms of diseases that Ötzi seems to have suffered from, such as osteoarthrosis. The figure shows four tattoo groups, two on the left side and two on the right side of the spine. They lie directly over acupuncture-points of the bladder meridian. In acupuncture, needling at specific points modifies the underlying "qi energy" affecting inner organs, pain perception, and inflammatory processes. The traditional points are predominantly located on 12 principal and two extraordinary vessels. Each meridian corresponds to an organ or organ system. One important aspect of this find is the timing. The earliest known text on acupuncture in China is about 5,000 years old—but Otzi is older than that. The region where Otzi was found is 3,000 miles from the nearest border of China, and it would have taken hundreds, perhaps thousands of years for knowledge to spread that far. So either acupuncture is much older than previously thought or it developed independently in Europe at about the same time. (Wonder why it died out in Europe?)

9 Acupuncture Point Schematic from William Tiller in Science and Human Transformation
The high conductivity zone is a biological antenna. Hence a meridian is a linked array of antennae along the body. Conforming your body to particular postures (as in Yoga or QiGong) can be thought of as a way to “tune in” to a specific channel or transmission frequency. The meridian pumps ions to the surface of the skin, where they broaden like an umbrella. The high conductivity zone created forms a transmission/reception mechanism at the acupuncture point, which is about 1 mm in size. 9

Acupuncture Pathway Photo in an acupuncture point vs in another part of the body Meridian pathway is clearly evident in the left photo showing movement of radioactive substance injected into acupuncture point. The right photo is an injection in another part of the body, not on an acupuncture point and it forms a blob with no movement along a meridian pathway. shows movement along a meridian pathway forms a blob Research of de Vernejoul, 1985 10

21 New Paradigm post-Einstein/Quantum Energy
- ? mins - None The energy disruption is the problem A shock to the system as this turns everything upside down Existing Maps are redundant when exporing EFT Island GET THE BOX!—Now…write down 5 emotional issues and reflect how different they look when we consider them to bethe result of energy disruptions How do we feel about this? The MISSION on EFT Island is to learn how to find and eliminate disruptions. Think about something negative “The day I fell downstairs” Negative emotion “I’m scared” Disruption

22 The Discovery Statement
- ? mins - None The cause of ALL negative emotion is a Disruption in the body’s energy system What does this statement mean? ----- Meeting Notes (3/6/13 20:29) ----- The fundamental hypothesis upn which EFT is based. Emotions are directly connected to the energy. Our job is to FIND & ELIMINATE Energy Disruptions! Ex: Battery

23 Personal Reflection Write down 3 emotional issues
and reflect for a moment on how different they look when we consider them to be a result of energy disruptions. Looking through the lens of the Discovery Statement, how do you feel about these issues now?

26 9 Gamut Bridging Technique
Bridging Techniques are energy exercises done between treatment sequences to allow for the energy shifts to stabilize, integrate and new aspects or objections to arise before moving onto the next step of the treatment process. 9 Gamut Bridging Technique While continuously tapping back of hand Close eyes Open eyes Eyes down to one side Eyes down to the other side Rotate eyes in a full circle Rotate eyes in full circle opposite way Hum a few notes Count or do some simple math Mention having client move eyes in a square instead of a circle in 9 Gamut Note there are other bridging techniques which will be covered in the second weekend. 26 26

28 Addictions Definitions
An Allergy of the body and an obsession of the mind…, Alcoholics Anonymous Addiciton is the misdirected spiritual path. ~Christina Grof

29 ASAM Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of the brain reward, motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in the circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward him/or relief by substance use and other behaviors

30 Addiction Let’s examine it through the lens of a psycho-energetic, psycho-spiritual model. Addiction as dis-ease Dis-ease is energetic Progression as energy, Traumas leading to Limiting Beliefs Craving as energy…

31 Craving Protocol Karate Chop Spot (KC) Under the Eye (UE)
Under the Arm (UA) Collar Bone (CB) If needed, 9 Gamut

32 Addiction is Familial Codependency Dysfunctional Relationships
The energy of family addictions is a whole other workshop…and yes…families are psycho-energetic.

33 Addiction is Spiritual
Spirit is energy Disconnection from Higher Power / Universal Creative Force “Addiciton practice replaces spiritual practice.” ~ Joseph Chilton Pearce PhD

34 Ancient Spiritual Roots of Addictive Processes
Alcohol: The ‘spirits” used by the shamans Tobacco: the shaman’s pipe held the tobacco Our fore-bearers held the “secrets” of herbal healing

35 Ancient Roots Money Process addictions such as, credit cards, money, shopping and gambling replaced the bartering that was the natural exchange of old communities worldwide. It was a system based on mutuality and fairness while the modern economic system is based on greed and power (mid-brain), which feeds the process addictions. Addiction to media may be a replacement of our “inner vision”. (Third Eye or 6th Chakra)

36 Dealing with Disruptions
- ? mins - None Somatic Complaints ENERGY DISRUPTIONS CAN APPEAR AS PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS WHAT IS AN ENERGY DISRUPTION? HOW DOES IT SHOW UP ON THE PHYSICAL LEVEL? HOW CAN YOU USE CBT TO ACCESS EMOTIONAL ISSUES?

37 Practice Time (5 min each)
Find a partner, Get right to it Counselor: Practice describing the Discovery Statement, offer a metaphor of your choice Operate the Constricted Breathing Technique as demonstrated Linguistic Hints: “Even though I have constricted breathing at a _____, I deeply and completely accept myself.” “Even though I can only fill my lungs up to a _____, I deeply and completely accept myself.” “My constricted breath…my lungs…”

38 4. DISRUPTIONS RESPOND BETTER
TO DIRECT ATTENTION BE SPECIFIC BE EMPHATIC BE PERSISTENT

39 Instructions for Exercise
- ? mins - None Alter the following setup phrases to demonstrate being more specific and to show awareness of new aspects I have this headache… I’m angry with my neighbor… My boss is a jerk… I have this fear of public speaking… I crave junk food... I have this fear of boats… I have road rage…

40 Demo- Look out for the following:
- ? mins - None Being specific in the Setup and Reminder phrases The location and the order of the tapping points When to take intensity ratings Physical sensations or other examples of the mind/body connection New aspects showing up and any key indicators of an aspect switch

41 Instructions for Exercise (30 min each)
- ? mins - None Choose an emotional issue to tap on such as: Simple fear of something like spiders, heights, or public speaking Simple craving for chocolate or any other snack Current events or irritations like work stress, a co-worker or a neighbor Make sure the issue is 5 or less for learning purposes only… DECIDE ON AN ISSUE. WHEN EVERYONE HAS AGREED, TURN SLIDE…

42 Instructions for Exercise
- ? mins - None Determine the issue Design a Setup/Reminder Record a beginning intensity score Tap 1 round Record a new intensity score Has it changed? THE GOAL IS TO BRING ABOUT A CHANGE RATHER THAN A DECREASE IN INTENSITY? HOW MANY OF YOU GAINED A FULL OR PARTIAL RELIEF FROM THE ISSUE? WHAT TYPE OF CHANGE OCCURS WITH EFT?

47 I’m not lovable Granny never hugged me as much as my sister
All the kids at school hated me My ex-husband said I was cold and distant WHEN A CLIENT STARTS TO TALK ABOUT ABOUT THEIR ISSUES, WHAT MIGHT HAPPEN? ABREACTION REMEMBER POSITIVE MEMORY EXERCISE: WRITE EVERYTHING ABOUT THE MEMORY THAT GIVES YOU THE POSITIVE MEMORY. STORYBOARD PRIOR NEGATIVE ISN’T CLEARING EACH SPECIFIC EVENT, ONE BY ONE, GOING TO TAKE A VERY LONG TIME? WHAT ABOUT A LIFE-ISSUE LIKE LOW SELF-ESTEEM? WHY WOULDN’T IT JUST BE OK TO TAP ON “EVEN THOUGH I HAVE THIS LOW SELF-ESTEEM…”?? 3 – 5 MINUTES LONG:

54 What We Have Learned Energy disruptions are found in Specific Events
- ? mins - None Energy disruptions are found in Specific Events Specific Events can group together to become emotional issues We liken Specific Events to table legs We liken Emotional Issues to tabletops supported by Specific Event table legs We clear Specific Event table legs methodically one by one The Generalization Effect will impact on table legs with similar emotional themes WHAT TYPES OF ISSUES COULD BE ADDRESSED WITH EFT? WHAT COULDN’T BE ADDRESSED WITH EFT? WHY NOT?

55 Instructions for Exercise
- ? mins - None ‘TELL THE STORY’ TECHNIQUE Rate intensity at the thought of telling the story Lower intensity to under 3 with global statements Ask client to tell the story Remind them to STOP if there is ANY intensity Use EFT on every intense aspect Continue until there is no intensity Ask client to vividly imagine and try to get upset Use EFT on any further aspects that come up WHAT IS “TELL THE STORY” TECHNIQUE? WON’T THE CLIENT GET ANNOYED IF WE KEEP INTERRUPTING THEIR STORY AND KEEP ASKING THEM TO REPEAT IT? WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF THE “TELL THE STORY” TECHNIQUE?
