Ways of Processing Emotions

Eye Movement in Flowing Emotions Remember to use eye-movement exercise while letting emotions flow. If necessary,this can be done very privately in public situations by pretending to read a book or look at a monitor. Tune into your feelings and move the eyes left to right and back and forth over and over again at a speed, from very slow to fast, that is comfortable to you. This works with the eyes opened or closed. Pay attention to the feelings and let the feelings flow and go through their changes, while the memories and the insights come. Eye movement shifts the emotional energy back and forth from one hemisphere of the brain to the other, allowing the energy to process. This is the same technique that the body uses naturally every night in dreaming. By moving the eyes back and forth, right to left to right to left, etc., at …

Ten Minute Exercise

Try This With A Partner Get with your partner and agree on a time to do some emotional dialogue. Usually it is good to limit this to about thrity minutes, although whatever feels right is the best guide. First you do the ten minute exercise and then switch roles and let your partner do ten minutes. Your partner acts as a facilitator and you decide on the question you would like him or her to ask you, such as “what’s bothering you today?” or “what is coming up for you today?” Its best to express your feelings using ‘juice’ words, or words relating to exactly how you feel, instead of an intellectual detached description of how you feel ( mentalising). An example of mentalizing would be, “The finances are in terrible shape and Junior is staying out too late.” An example of using ‘juice’ words, which is more conducive to expressing feelings, …

Helping Emotions Heal

Written by Dr. Michael Schlosser and Cynthia Rose Young Schlosser Dear Participant, Welcome to the Trauma Healing Facilitators Workshop. In this workshop we will learn about feelings, where they reside in the body when we are not aware of them, and what to do with them when they come into our awareness day to day. We will learn that feelings cannot be willed away, or forced to change through intellectualization or medication. Feelings change themselves. They change themselves naturally when they are allowed to flow in an atmosphere of empathy and acceptance. Feelings are compressed information, much like a zip file on a computer. Opening this zip file is equivalent to the act of flowing, of accepting any feeling and paying attention to it as it flows. The feeling will heal itself, just as the body heals itself when it is wounded and not feeling good. Surprisingly, this does not …

Visual Images: Languages of the Mind

Visual Images: The Language of the Mind The role of visual images in healing emotional traumas PET, the substance of memories 50 years of research in various scientific fields agrees with ancient sciences of yoga: the brain speaks to itself in visual images. In an experiment with subjects holding thermometers in each hand, being told to make one hand hotter than the other, no difference in temperature was recorded no matter how hard the subjects ‘tried’ and no matter what verbal commands they gave their hands. When told to imagine a hot potato in one hand and a piece of ice in the other, however, the hands registered different temperatures. It is important, in healing painful memories, to remember that a memory is composed of 3 things: visual images, emotions, and thoughts. To effectively heal a painful memory, all of these three components must all change. This is done by …

Self Help: Quick Fix Suggestions

The Use of Dreaming Eye Movement and Acceptance of Emotions in the Body in Processing Emotions In shamanic training, students learn to process strong emotions by moving the eyes back and forth identically to the natural eye movements made in dreaming sleep. Psychologists discovered a similar phenomena and gave it the name EMDR, or eye movement desensitization response. When a Triggered Person [TP] experiences strong feelings and does not have access to an opportunity to do a full Trauma Healing session, living the questions is recommended. Ask yourself the following questions: “What is happening right now?” and, “Can I be with it?”* There is nothing unworthy of acceptance. If something is, it is. Not to accept it is to live in denial, to remain trapped in resistance by our own choosing. To accept something because it exists is not at all the same as making it “okay.” Acceptance is the …

Expecting the partner to make you happy, holding partner accountable …

Creating Another Self: The Inner Therapist

Each of us has different selves. Among others, we have the inner child self, the part of us that loves birthday presents and having fun. We have the responsible adult self that goes to work on time and accomplishes necessary tasks. We have the romantic self that longs for completion in relationships. Now it is time to create perhaps the most important self of all, the shepherd self. The therapist self is the self that protects and nurtures all the others, viewing all other selves, no matter how many or few, as a flock under its care. It is the quiet watcher that is responsible for noticing the least lack of harmony within any of the selves, or within the flock as a whole. It is the self that knows what to do to restore this harmony. The good shepherd, the therapist, allows nature to take its course and only intervenes …
