Energy Psychology: The Way to Overcome Irrational Fear, Anger, and Anxiety is in Your Hands
by Dondi Dahlin
You feel nervous about a talk you have to give this evening. But, you try a new technique you have heard about. Your fear dissolves in ten minutes and you deliver a great talk.

What caused this change? How did you overcome your irrational fear?

Every time your husband’s ex-wife appears at your home to pick up her daughter you are filled with jealousy. It makes no sense to your rational mind. This time, however, after using this new technique, you greet her with a genuine smile. You show her a new appreciation for each of your roles in your stepdaughter’s life.

What caused these changes?

You have been using Energy Psychology.

“Energy Psychology” Is One of the Most Exciting Innovations to Come From Psychotherapy in Decades!

People from many walks of life now claim that they are eliminating debilitating fears, prolonged grief, irrational jealousies, and pesky anxieties using simple Energy Psychology techniques.

Even veterans dealing with the intrusion of haunting memories, insomnia, and phobias are now getting help with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder that had in many instances resisted years of psychotherapy. International treatment teams are also finding that Energy Psychology is the best approach available to them for applying psychological first-aid in the field after a disaster strikes.

While these claims are extraordinary enough, what’s most surprising about Energy Psychology is how easy it is to learn and apply.

How Energy Psychology Can Help You Overcome Irrational Fear, Anxiety, Anger, and Jealousy!

Energy Psychology provides you with freedom from the grip of irrational fears and anxieties, self-defeating patterns of behavior, and kneejerk reactions to challenging situations. Energy Psychology accomplishes quickly what even the best talk therapies accomplish only slowly.

Energy Psychology draws from the principles of acupuncture, but without the use of needles. It has also been called “acupuncture for the emotions” and “acupuncture without needles.” When you use the techniques of Energy Psychology, you tap acupuncture points on your body with your fingers.

This is combined with a variety of thoughts, statements, affirmations, and various physical tasks such as humming and counting. The method ultimately sends signals to the brain that rapidly reprogram your emotional responses.

Sound strange?

Maybe, but it works. In fact, hundreds of thousands of people are reporting that it works! The tapping is believed to send signals to the brain that change your brain’s response to the situation you are visualizing. Neurological patterns that interfere with your success, happiness, and wellbeing can all be targeted.

Energy Psychology in the Clinic and in the Home

Some people learn Energy Psychology from a book. Others learn it from a class or from a therapist or other practitioner. While the tapping itself is easy to learn and can be done on your own, sound judgment in knowing where to focus your attention is critical. If you decide to learn it from a therapist or a class, then as with any health care treatment, be sure you do some investigation and find a practitioner you can trust.

After gaining an understanding of your concerns, a proficient Energy Psychology professional would have you:

• Focus on a challenging situation or memory that is related to one of your key concerns.

• “Rate” the amount of distress it causes you on a scale from 0 to 10

• Explore any internal conflicts about overcoming the issue and resolve them

• Tap on a series of acupuncture points located on areas such as your temples, chest, and hands while stating a phrase that describes the emotion you are focusing upon.

• Perform a number of activities designed to engage both sides of your brain, such as counting or humming a tune.

• Rate the issue again to get a measure on changes in your internal response to the situation.

After each round, there is usually a reduction in the intensity of the unwanted emotion. The entire routine requires only a couple of minutes and can be done multiple times and in different ways, depending on the complexity and severity of the issue.

Helping with Trauma, Everyday Emotions, and Peak Performance

Along with successfully helping victims of warfare and other cataclysms, Energy Psychology can be used for releasing you from the aftershocks of personal trauma. With it, you can also free yourself from the grips of everyday problematic emotions, such as ungrounded fears, anxieties, and jealousies.

In addition to its problem-oriented focus, Energy Psychology enhances peak performance. From professional athletes to business executives to caring parents, an understanding of how to work with acupuncture points on your skin can help calibrate your brain to bring out the best in you.

Anger May Be a Symptom of Your Beliefs
by Buck Black
There are a variety of reasons a person may become angry. In previous articles, I have discussed the primary feelings that result in anger and the high expectations one may have, which result in disappointment and subsequent anger. I now want to introduce how a person’s belief system can cause a great deal of anger, which is based on the work of Albert Ellis.

What are your beliefs? Which ones do you hold dear? Which beliefs do you have that do not serve you anymore—or even cause you harm? A belief is something that you hold to be true. You can think of it as a value system or a list of “shoulds and should nots.” For example, you could have a belief that everyone should be kind to one another, you should always get your way, or being a nice person will get you far in life and people will never take advantage of you.

Many of these beliefs are formed when you are a child. They often are instilled by a parent, teacher, or other person you saw as an authority figure or mentor. Often, these teachings, (which frequently turn into beliefs) are a fantastic asset. However, we all develop beliefs that cause problems later down the road. For example, the people who believe they should always get their way are likely to be substantially angrier compared to those who do have more rational beliefs, such as knowing that you cannot win every time.

The next time you get upset, take a look at what belief you have that is making you angry. Then, ask yourself “is my belief rational?” Many times, that belief is not practical or rational. Once you recognize the problem with this belief, then you can make an adjustment as needed. For example, you may realize that a certain belief you have is so irrational that there is no way you can remain calm while continuing with this belief. Once you find those beliefs that are more irrational or absurd, you are so much more likely to be able to control your anger. Another adjustment may be to add some understanding to your belief. For example, if you believe you should always be treated fairly, it may be helpful to tell yourself that you deserve to be treated fairly, but you know that there will be times that people try to take advantage of you—that’s life! In my experience, I get many people in my office who are able to significantly reduce their anger when they find ways to roll with it, instead of taking it head-on.

You might be thinking, “What if my belief IS rational?” Testing your beliefs may help you to learn when you have justified anger. Remember, anger is helpful when used appropriately. Just think of the people who use anger to appropriately stand up for themselves when they are being taken advantage of. If it were not for justified anger, there would be fewer civil rights, women would not be voting, and there would be so many more injustices in the world. When anger is justified, remember to use that energy in a positive manner, instead of being violent, verbally abusive, or doing something else that will end up hurting yourself or others.
