What Is Emotional Resolution

or EmRes?

We can permanently resolve our emotional difficulties when we observe the physical sensations felt in our body during that emotion.

In other words, the body has a natural and innate capacity to regulate itself. By turning to the sensory root of our emotions instead of cognitive analysis, we allow the body and the brain to integrate the emotion, permanently resolving it.

 

We spend much time trying to understand why we feel what we feel. While an intellectual inquiry can sometimes help us point out the source of our pain, it’s not enough to resolve it. We have to let our body regulate itself by switching our awareness to its physical reactions (i.e. the feeling of our legs becoming weak, a pit in the stomach, sweaty hands, a constricted throat…)

From the current understanding of neuroscience, these sensations are predictions of the brain, based on past highly stressful experiences. In her book “How emotions are made”, the neuroscientist and psychologist Lisa Feldman Barrett explains that: “In every waking moment, your brain uses past experience, organized as concepts, to guide your actions and give your sensations meaning. When the concepts involved are emotion concepts, your brain constructs instances of emotion.”

EmRes allows the brain to update outdated predictions by consciously observing the obsolete interoceptive prediction from a safe, present-day perspective.

  We NEVER revisit traumas and don’t need to go into the story. We need present time events that represents the impact of our traumas and difficulties.

 

We can work to resolve anything from recurrent stresses to long-lasting traumas; PTSD, anger, anxiety, grief, sadness, phobias, learning blockages as well as eliminate or reduce the physical symptoms of chronic ailments such as migraines, chronic fatigue, skin conditions, insomnia, chronic body pain...
