Actually, Psychological Reversal is not something you “have,” or rather, most of us have it either all the time, most of the time or some of the time. One problem that occurs frequently with most healing methods–be it medical, alternative, body therapies, or psychotherapy–is that people try these methods for a long time and nothing much changes. This is because, for many of us, we definitely want to and intend to get better and heal, but there is also a part of us that is somehow against healing emotional pain or physical pain, or is afraid to get better for some reason. For example, we may feel we don’t deserve to feel good, or our parents told us we were not good enough in various ways and we’ve internalized that, or–in the case of chronic illnesses or addictions, for example–we would have to make major changes in our lives if we heal.
These are all unconscious resistances, not conscious. They don’t mean we’re weak or have a character flaw. They are basically the result of being alive on the planet, where we receive all kinds of criticisms and negative actions coming our way, and we develop negative beliefs about ourselves because of them. EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques) has a built-in way to deal with these psychological reversals.
Think of a TV set
When it’s functioning normally, a TV has electricity flowing through it. If you take a screwdriver and touch parts of the insides, however, it will short circuit and the best you’ll get is static. This will continue until you take the screwdriver out. We can make a parallel with our own body’s energy system. Sometimes something happens to ”short-circuit” it; the result is some kind of “negative” emotion–fear, anxiety, sadness, anger, even panic attacks, for example. The factor that short-circuits us could be a traumatic event or something else that we may not even remember. The result can be emotional or physical.
Getting Your Inner and Outer Self “On the Same Page” Often Means Healing Emotional Pain More Quickly
If we tune in to the event, the emotion, or the physical pain, using EFT, we can correct the short-circuit, and attain emotional freedom. Often, the issue will clear up quite quickly. Other times, it takes some persistence to alleviate the issue. For more information, see my EFT and EFT Case Studies pages or contact me .
