Past trauma consume our energy. They keep us trapped in habitual behavior patterns and deny our natural birthright of living in a state of positive energy. EMDR can unlock the nervous system to assist in healing past traumas. It is often used in cases of PTSD.
Often when something traumatic happens, it seems to get locked in the nervous system with the original picture, sounds, thoughts, feelings and so on. Since the experience is locked there, it continues to be triggered whenever a reminder comes up. It can be the basis (root) of much discomfort and sometimes negative emotions such as fear and helplessness that we cannot seem to control.
EMDR may be beneficial for you if you desire:
Eliminating self-defeating thoughts and old patterns
Conquering phobia and anxieties
Gaining control over psychological stress
Freeing yourself from negative conditioning and painful memories
The important thing to remember is that it is YOUR brain that will be doing the healing and YOU are the one in control.
