Synopsis

Emotional Liberation is freedom from negative, reactive behavior patterns using heavy emotions for personal growth and therapeutic healing. It is a method that recognizes and utilizes emotions as keys to our Psychological Immune System. 

Emotional dysfunction is rampant. From 10% US population with diagnosed Anxiety, global Despression described as epidemic; to the everyday suffering most people live with, there is an urgent need for an approach that goes beyond medication to truly resolving the underlying issues. This book presents the theory and practice to do so. 

Combining brain research discoveries with the techniques of somatic experiencing and mindfulness practices, the author discovered in working with clients that the very emotions that arise from trauma and continued to haunt us, are not weakness or additional problems to overcome and get rid of. Rather, by working WITH them as part of our system’s self-healing ability, issues are resolved at the deepest level.

This work will impact the fields of mental health/ emotional and psychological wellness and appeal to the personal improvement and yoga/meditation market, as well as to therapists and other professionals dealing with trauma recovery. Psychological terms and techniques are mainstreaming; this book joins and advances beyond self-help to self-therapy.

What the reader will get:

  • Compassionate recognition of their negative feelings and behaviors; everyone has them.
  • Understanding of how these patterns are formed, called trauma.
  • The possibility to use trauma as a catalyst for personal growth.
  • Hope that with information and effort anyone can recover and thrive.
  • A working knowledge of emotions as keys to healing trauma.
  • A complete therapeutic system for self-study and clinical application.

Including:

  • Simple, effective exercises to create the calm clarity required to work with emotions.
  • Direct experience of successful self-regulation; immediate and longterm improvement.
  • Specific information and techniques on each of 7 principal heavy emotions.

Audience

  • Self-Improvement Readers People with anxiety, depression or any other emotional concerns who seek help through self-improvement.
  • Yoga/ Meditation, Healthy Lifestyle and Consciousness-raising people; Complimentary and Alternative Medicine (CAM) practitioners and users
  • Therapists and all caregiving professionals who often seek relief for themselves and new information to help others. 

These people are mostly educated women living or seeking healthy lifestyle and alternative methods of self-help, self-improvement for themselves and others. Psychology and brain science research are inreasingly discussed and used by these groups as evidenced by now common erms like activation, triggers, trauma and recovery.

The National Institute of Mental Health estimates 40 million Americans (18%) alone suffer from Anxiety Disorder, with up to 30% living with anxiety unwellness issues, many unaware of their condition. Persistent Depressive Disorder affected 7% of the US population in a 2012 study, and WHO estimates 350 million worldwide. The many societal effects of these and other mental/emotional disorders include crime, drug use, the opiod epidemic, domestic violence, self-harm, suicide and even oursocial/ political polarization.

Clinically, emotional conditions are treated with medication which helps but seldom resolves the condition. Talk therapy better gets to the root causes, but we have found that the ultimate clearing of chronic persistent emotions occurs most effectively through somato-emotional self-inquiry which will surely be the future savior of our mental health. 

What portion of these will seek self-help? MarketResearch.com reports that “the U.S. self-improvement market will grow 5.6% per year, from $9.9 billion in 2016 to $13.2 billion by 2022. This will increasingly be used via online courses which I will continue to offer with this second book.

Therapists and other mental health workers are well read and follow the trends in treatment theories and practices. Many of them are also CAM practitioners/ users and fare early adapters of cutting edge of new and effective thought and practices.

Competition

The Astonishing Power of Emotions: Let Your Feelings Be Your Guide by Esther Hicks and Jerry Hicks, Hay House, September 25, 2006

This leading-edge book will help you understand what emotions are, what each of them means, and how to effectively utilize your new awareness of them.

This is one of the first popular books to teach the positive use of emotion by allowing oneself to fully feel. My book goes further to show how predictably systematic emotions are, give a therapeutic model, and specific exercises for each of 7 principal heavy emotions.

-Emotional Agility: Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life by Susan David, Penguin, Sep 6, 2016

Emotional agility is a revolutionary, science-based approach that allows us to navigate life’s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind. Renowned psychologist Susan David developed this concept after studying emotions, happiness, and achievement for more than twenty years. She found that no matter how intelligent or creative people are, or what type of personality they have, it is how they navigate their inner world—their thoughts, feelings, and self-talk—that ultimately determines how successful they will become.

Susan David brings scientific support to her discoveries of the importance of emotional skills. "Navigating the inner world" is precisely what Emotional Liberation teaches, but in greater, step-by-step and emotion-by-emotion detail. The reader is given practical exercises to learn and build these skills.

- No Hard Feelings: Emotions at Work (and How They Help Us Succeed). To be Released Jan 22, 2019 by Liz Fosslien and Mollie West Duffy

I include this here to demonstrate that this positive approach to “negative emotions is a growing trend that will be widely mainstreamed in the next 5 to 10 years. Emotional Liberation contributes to this advancing knowledge and skill.

-Bessel Van Der Kolk, The Body Keeps the Score: Brain, Mind and Body in the Healing of Trauma (2014), Penguin Books, Sep 2015

A pioneering researcher transforms our understanding of trauma and offers a bold new paradigm for healing. Trauma is a fact of life. In The Body Keeps the Score, he explores innovative treatments—from neurofeedback and meditation to sports, drama, and yoga—that offer new paths to recovery by activating the brain’s natural neuroplasticity.

This book offers many clinical studies of trauma recovery using a variety of “alternative” techniques, with scientific background for why they work. Emotional Liberation utilizes a synerdistic blend of several of these techniques, and refers to his work rather than attempting reproduce it or explain in as much detail.

Healing Trauma: A Pioneering Program for Restoring the Wisdom of Your Body, Peter A. Levine, Sounds True, Oct 1, 2008

And

In an Unspoken Voice: How the Body Releases Trauma and Restores Goodness Sep 28, 2010) by Peter A. Levine and Gabor Mate, North Atlantic Books

Peter A. Levine draws on his broad experience as a clinician, a student of comparative brain research, a stress scientist and a keen observer of the naturalistic animal world to explain the nature and transformation of trauma in the body, brain and psyche. In an Unspoken Voice is based on the idea that trauma can be healed by engaging our innate capacity to self-regulate high states of arousal and intense emotions. Enriched with a coherent theoretical framework and compelling case examples, the book shows that when we bring together animal instinct and reason, we can become more whole human beings.

Emotional Liberation is a form of Somatic-experiencing, which has been shown by Peter Levine to be key to healing trauma, Is a key to the SOS Method in Emotional Liberation. Here we invoke the mindful state using powerful and quickly effective breathwork exercises, and guided (or self-guided) meditation to train the user to process instinct through intellect.

I agree that trauma is a catalyst for personal growth, it is for me. There is a power. I remember, that I need to find a way and different perspective, everything or nothing. To be, to be, to be.
