EMDR and Spirituality

Written by Onaolapo Adeyemi. Posted in and spirituality, EMDR

Emdr and Spirituality seem to be connected one way or the other.  I took time to study the link between the two as I document every stage of my finding.  The documentation was in reference to one of my friend that was undergoing the psychotherapy treatment to treat his post traumatic stress disease and an individual that volunteered to be treated spiritually by a high priest.  Both treatment commenced the same month.  To be sure I was going to get the best result, I made sure my friend never met the other individual who volunteered to be treated spirituality by the said high priest.  Everyday;I recorded their feedback and to my surprise, the description from both of them were similar.

We all know that most people who have experienced some sort of traumatic torture in their life end up acting like a psycho if their problems are not addressed quickly.  One thing I learned with time is the fact that people tend to make their love ones feel the pain they felt by making them miserable.  It might not be true in all cases; this is simply my observation.

 

Emdr and Spirituality Experiment

We all know that most people who have experienced some sort of traumatic torture in their life end up acting like a psycho if their problems are not addressed quickly.  One thing I learned with time is the fact that people tend to make their love ones feel the pain they felt by making them miserable.  It might not be true in all cases; this is simply my observation.

The fact that the individual who volunteered, and my friend never met each other before but yet they shared similar results made me believe that the interpretation of EMDR is directly proportional to spirituality from a celestial 3D world.  EMDR is to reduce or eliminate past traumatic effects on an individual; stuck or resident in some part of the memory according to Francine Shapiro, a practise of psychotherapy.

Spirituality have different definitions as well as the therapy behind the eye movement desensitization, one reflect divinity as a religion, while the other makes good use of reprocessing technics, which in turn is psychotherapy.  Many tribes from different country have been using this process to heal their loved ones who have gone through severe trauma, long before Francine Shapiro, Ph.D. discovered the theory behind the eye movement reprocessing process.  Those tribes uses spirituality as mysticism, which is their believe in voodoo cult, and communicate with the spirits of the shrine.

Combining emdr study with spirituality is a whole different ball game because although emdr has to do more about physiotherapy which in turn is an enhanced and buffered systemic hypnotism while spiritualism on the other hand has to do more about psychology.   The definition of this divine topic is clearly distinguishable from the unique perspective of the individuals and the tribe – (some of the tribes to define the word as reciting incantations to invoke the spirits), location, language, and many other criteria, the definition makes sense .

The definition of mysticism or deep and can not be removed or adequately dealt with this page, if you wanted.  A few populace think it’s’ the art of making and applying the body to fast and pray, but a group of elite think it is a combination of everything above and beyond.  No matter how you read a meaning to the emdr and spirituality definition, the consistency of the existence of the co-ordination of man to determine the definition of human behavior and secular, which in today’s world, so we are connected.  The act of spiritualism allows us to be interconnected.  All things are connected in one way or another, the web, people (living or dead), the land within the earth and its fullness; and so on.

Emdr and spiritualism compared to emdr is the mechanism that drives our ego to reset our memory or abstain from doing things from the past.  We are indirectly controlled by this actions, and combined with a heavenly power that no one can be moved, the force is familiar with the power to prepare.  My experiment actually made me understand so many things about who we are and how so little things can make big differences in our lives.

Emdr Therapy Side Effects

SIDE EFFECTS OF EMDR

EMDR side effects – emdr therapy has become an innovative option for treating or reducing conditions associated with anxiety, depression, and in some cases abuse or breach of trust suffered by some individuals.  As with any treatment in life, there is always side effects or risk associated with the form of treatment.  It might not be much, but it will exist in one way or the other.

These emdr side effect risks are more pronounced to those who practice self EMDR therapy and could make the mental disorder much more severe.  One of the most common side effects associated with EMDR is the onset or increase in fear and distress.
The process, as I can understand is designed for you to face your fear from the past and overcome it.  Destroy it from that part of your memory.

This form of therapy is designed to minimize and resolve other emotions, thereby making the patients distressed.  Never perform the EMDR therapy by yourself as you tend to loose focus on the technique and, as a result, you may lose focus or concentration on the task at hand which could worsen your mental situation.

According to EMDR Institute Inc,  as with any form of psychotherapy, it may lead to a temporary increase in distress. So far, according to EMDR Institute, it has been noted that patients that underwent the eye movement desensitization and reprocessing treatment have distressing and unresolved memories which may emerge occasionally.

Some unexpected results may occur during or after emdr therapy that was not part of the plan, reactions like having a high level of sensitivity or emotions or some physical sensations. Subsequent to the treatment session, the processing of incidents/material may continue, and other dreams, memories feelings, etc., may emerge.

According to this emdr side effects mentioned above, I would really suggest that any potential patient should properly disclose previous trauma that could aid or assist the EMDR therapist in making a proper care plan.

I try my best possible to update this page as soon as I hear or read something of value about the side effects of emdr therapy/ treatment, so make sure you bookmark this page for easy future access.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR – You might want to ask yourself, what exactly is this emdr? it is a form of psychotherapy that was developed to resolve symptoms resulting from disturbing and unresolved life experiences. It uses a structured approach to address past, present, and future aspects of disturbing memories. The approach was developed by Francine Shapiro to resolve the development of trauma-related disorders as resulting from exposure to a traumatic or distressing event, such as rape or military combat.

When a person recalls a distressing memory, the person can re-experience what they saw, heard, smelt, tasted or felt, which can be intense. By alternating left-right stimulation of the brain with eye movements, patients can stimulate the “frozen” information processing system. During the process, the distressing memories seem to lose their intensity so that the memories are less distressing and seem more like ‘ordinary’ memories.

emdr_ptsd_educationTrauma-related disorders could be as a result of a traumatic or distressing event, such as rape or military combat.  I’ll be discussing the military combat which is what really interest me. Are our veterans really being treated fairly when it comes to trauma, PTSD and the side effects of war? Does this so called emdr really works? Although, I have heard of cases where clinics use the emdr for other purposes, other than what is mentioned above, but since it is not official, I will not mention it here.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy process and procedures, according to Francine Shapiro involves eight phases to have a complete and effective emdr treatment.   This phases or seasons are taking patient history, discussing overall treatment plan, identify patient safe place, to serve as a reset mode when or during unbearable reminders of the past traumatic events, identifying the negative cognition, the installation phase, identifying pain or discomfort, debriefing and re-evaluation.

As long as traumatic memories go unprocessed, they may be triggered by experiences or interactions in your current life, shifting and coloring your perceptions. Some people need more than conversations and replacement thoughts to resolve what is happening in their minds and bodies. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, EMDR psychotherapy, provides a proven therapeutic alternative
