Mental and Emotional Release Therapy
Our perceptions are a projection of emotions, and our emotions are based on how we feel about the past and future. If you could, would you put the timeline of your past and future in a straight line or something different? Your timeline is how you store your memories and projections. This occurs within your unconscious mind. Like a house that's been lived in for years, our unconscious thoughts have collected a lot of “junk”, both good and bad, wanted and unwanted, needed and unneeded.
If you feel certain restraints in your life you may already recognize there may be something within you needing a spring-cleaning. Mental and Emotional Release therapy (MER) does exactly that for your unconscious mind. It is a clinically researched approach to help you release stress, anxiety, fear and other negative emotions. The technique is based on neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) and while it is more extensive than this page allows for explanation, it is basically a way of working with your unconscious mind and memories or projections to release negative emotions at their root.
During MER a person who has been interviewed thoroughly is guided to the root cause of their issue. Once there, visualizations and guidance along their timeline are utilized to release the negative emotion from each point on the timeline where it exists. Once the timeline has been cleaned up of the negative emotions, the learning from the events is preserved in order to not only appreciate the past experiences but also to gain wisdom and realize a certain clarity about the past events and how they have contributed and protected.
Using this approach a person can gain emotional control over their everyday lives. Of course a person can always make a choice to feel a certain way, and after MER, inappropriate emotional reactions are greatly diminished, as well as periods of apathy, depression, sadness, anxiety or guilt. This allows a person to feel enabled and empowered to move forward and start living life again.
This is a fascinating process of removing the emotional charge of past events and while you certainly still remember what happened, you will feel more confident, productive and inspired to live your life.
