In the outer world I have noticed an emphasis placed on the need to process emotions in order to attain emotional wellness. This focus is rising in spiritual circles, self-help coaching/facilitation and with light workers. Processing our emotions is paramount to our evolutionary process, and I am seeing a positive shift away from spiritual bypassing, which is the use of spiritual practices/beliefs to avoid dealing with painful feelings and unresolved wounds.
What is currently showing up in my outer world are long established and new "therapies"containing set procedures that can be utilized to eliminate almost ANY emotional or mental problem fast and fully, with guaranteed results that are long lasting. These therapies are based on determining what the actual circumstance is, how it makes us feel, and acknowledging that circumstances are just conditions that are neither good nor bad, it is us who decides if they are good or bad. Basically, change your thoughts/mind around a condition and your emotions will adjust to this new perspective. During my life coach training there was a module taught called Balance. The focus was to meet the client where the were with a challenging condition in their life. Here we would introduce new lenses or perspectives for them to view and feel this condition. They would leave a session feeling uplifted having shifted their perspective. My experience with Balance coaching was that it was effective, but only for a short period of time. New conditions would arise in the client's life to bring them back to a similar situation and the underlying core emotions.
I trained in EFT and EMDR a number of years ago. I used EFT to clear my phobia of having my neck touched, especially by a man. I was amazed how tapping on meridian points could so easily clear this deep set fear. Through recently activating my karma, vulnerability around my neck has again arisen, and is now manifesting itself in different ways.
People are experiencing great 'success' in dissolving deep seated emotions through these cognitive and energy based therapies. I am not drawn to utilizing them as I very much align with the Openhand way to confront past life karma.
I would like to understand how these therapies seem to work quickly and without much effort. As a consciousness coach I feel called to support people to go into the depths of their emotions. I base this on my own experience in how I have been processing my emotions.
I would appreciate feedback from the community on this topic. I feel I need to have a deeper understanding of these quick and easy processes as I venture forward in support of others.
My reason for posting this is based on a conversation I had with a man yesterday who is training in a modality that is a verbally guided experience that trains the way your brain processes your mental & emotional reactions to unsatisfactory situations. He questioned me on the need to go deep into the layers of emotional process when one could achieve harmony through this therapy easily and with little pain or effort. This modality also helps you attain the sense that you can do what any of your greatest icons have achieved and beyond. If you would like to embody some of the traits of James Bond, the process will allow you to feel as if you were in James Bond’s shoes. Or walk, talk and embody the positive traits of any persona that you admire. I raised my eyebrow to this claim...lol :).
I have edited to add another query. I sense that people committed to the path of going deep into their karma could become caught in an eddy current of continuously efforting to the process. Perhaps this is a topic to explore in another thread. ;-)
