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) … …with interventions to rebalance components of the human vibrational matrix (biofield, meridians, energy centers) … …to facilitate rapid positive individual change and optimal psychotherapeutic outcomes

4 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. The EP 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.

8 Tattoos tattoosacupuncture osteoarthrosis 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 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.

9 Acupuncture Point Schematic from William Tiller in Science and Human Transformation 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.

22 The Discovery Statement The cause of ALL negative emotion is a Disruption in the body’s energy system

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?

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 6 th Chakra)

36 Dealing with Disruptions Somatic Complaints ENERGY DISRUPTIONS CAN APPEAR AS PHYSICAL SYMPTOMS

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 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: 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 ) 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…

42 Instructions for Exercise Determine the issue Design a Setup/Reminder Record a beginning intensity score Tap 1 round Record a new intensity score Has it changed?

54 What We Have Learned 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

55 Instructions for Exercise 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 ‘TELL THE STORY’ TECHNIQUE
