You can certainly benefit from Energetics, even if you can't lift your arms.
Here are some possible options:
If you can easily move the other arm, use the sore arm as the stationary arm and move the other arm through the various positions.
If moving either of your arms over your head causes pain, discomfort or tension, use one arm as the stationary arm and visualize (imagine you can feel) the other hand on the spots. If holding your arm in one position exacerbates the problem, you can alternate hands.
You can also move your hands through the lower positions and visualize the ones that would give you trouble.
Someone else can hold the points for you as you say the words, if there is someone close by who'd be willing to put their hands on your head:)
I'm completely free of my symptoms of both PTSD and IBS and have been for years. Doctors and other experts told me that these were things I would have to put up with for the rest of my life and that I'd need to develop "coping mechanisms" rather than expect to get well. They were wrong!
Doctors (surgeons, physiotherapists, phychologists) are just people, like you and me, and they don't know everything. That's why there are "spontaneous remissions". That's code for "Huh, he got better. Weird."
When you are working on your pain, I would recommend throwing in some phrases that say that you are okay with being pain-free even though the doctor tells you that you have to put up with
it for now or that its "part of the healing process". Something like: "Although I have this stupid, annoying plate in my shoulder and the doctor says its just going to hurt until its
removed and doctors are always right, they know everything and I hate being in pain and I'm in constant pain, I love myself exactly the way I am and I choose to let the pain go anyway."
I hope that this helps and you are pain-free in a jiffy!
You don't have to be consistent to reap the benefits. A new video is sent every two weeks. You can use it everyday or just once. Its up to you.
Of course, if you don't use the videos at all, nothing will change. But only working on things once every couple of weeks is perfectly fine.
Sometimes even one session will fix a long term problem. In the first video, which is on physical pain, Audrey has all of her back pain disappear in about half an hour. This was a problem that had been going on for some time and she'd been to a doctor and a physio therapist already. 3 weeks later when we spoke again, she said that the pain was still completely gone.
I can't tell whether that will be the case for you, but it is certainly possible!
When I was living everyday with PTSD, I was afraid all the time. Some days my anxiety was a low background noise and some days it was so loud that I didn't hear anything else, but it was always there.
I went through conventional therapy (saw a psychologist) for over a year and a half until I "stabilized" and we were no longer making any progress. I was told that I would have to "live with it" and our primary goal was to develop "coping mechanisms".
Then I spent years alternating trying other kinds of help, various kinds of counselling, whatever I could find and then getting too depressed and discouraged to bother trying. This process wasn't helped by the fact that I fell through the cracks of most places missions (I did a little counselling at the Haven House, for example, but their mandate is to help women who have been in abusive relationships, not people who were held up at gunpoint).
Then I lucked into a therapist who taught me the beginnings of what has since become Energetics. In 6 weeks (9 hours) I was no longer afraid of leaving my house. I no longer had nightmares or flashbacks or strange fears. My depression that had been coming and going, left, and hasn't returned in nearly a decade.
I started a new life and started helping other people feel safe and healthy again.
Now I've launched this website to reach out to more people and I've started reading the PTSD support groups on Facebook and it all comes back to me. How stressed, scared and miserable I was; how I felt that no one could help me and felt guilty for putting my friends through the agony of having to watch me like this and not being able to help (Of course, their support helped, but I knew that they felt helpless).
I want to reach out to all the hurting people and tell them that I have a technique that will probably help. That its worth a shot, even if they are tired of getting their hopes up.
This is your chance to get well again. I can barely remember what PTSD felt like. Can you imagine that?
PS to see more of my story, see the About Me page and/or watch the free intro video by subscribing to the Newsletter!
PPS If you or someone you love is suffering from PTSD right now, please consider having a personal consultation with me. I'd be happy to help. No one should have to live like that.
How can I change my habits to become more consistent and follow through with things that are important to me?
If you are having problems with being consistent, doing the things you know are good for you or want to do, or you start things, but don't see them through to completion, you are definitely not alone! I think getting excited at the beginning of something new and then dropping off the wagon, is very human. Its not always the best way to be though!
You can certainly use Energetics to help change your thoughts and habits. I would use a tuning phrase something like, "Although I am always starting things and not finishing them and I don't like to do the same thing twice, and I get bored with new routines before they are even routines, and I'm completely inconsistent, I still love myself exactly the way I am and I am open to becoming consistent and developing a new habit of completion."
I know that no one is "completely inconsistent", but making the statement bigger and bolder than real life can be helpful for changing internal patterns. If you have specific memories of times you haven't followed through with something, you could mentiion them in the tuning phrase too, especially if you have a strong feeling about them (guilt or feeling stupid or that you've let someone down).
Then do the flush and the install using the phrases you used in the tuning phrase.
The third video in the series is on procrastination and you may find that helpful as well. Lack of follow through and procrastination often go hand in hand.
Congratulations on following through and reading the entire post!
I recently taught a young fellow (pre-teen) Energetics as we worked on his trouble with defecating. For the last ten years, he hasn't been able to have a bowel movement without the use of suppositories more than once a month. (For every 1 day he can go on his own, he has 29 days that he needs help.)
We worked together twice, a week apart, for 45 minutes and his mother tells me that he was able to have a bowel movement on his own once or twice a day several days running.
I was so excited to get this news, that I danced my own young son around the room. Its an interesting experience, because I feel for everyone involved. I remember having my own bowel troubles heal, I can understand the joy and hopefullness of a mother whose child is suddenly doing much better and I can enjoy knowing that I helped make a difference in his health and their lives.
I really, really love my life!
Its such a joy to know that Energetics can really make huge positive changes in people's lives and getting reminders/evidence of that feels overwhelmingly good!
Do you often find yourself totally stressed out? Is how you live your life effected by your fears? Do you long for real and lasting peace? Are you ready to heal from your
traumas and grief?
Energetics can help! With this tool its easy to release stress, feel relaxed and balanced. Increase your self-confidence, self-esteem and motivation while you are at it. And truly heal from any trauma, anxiety, fear, depression or anger issues that you have been living with for so long. It can also help with performance anxiety (stage fright).
Are you interested (or required) to learn new skills? Maybe a language, a new business skill, or maybe you just want to improve your snapshot or drive?
Energetics can help. Whether its business skills (negotiation, sales, management or communication) or Life skills (languages, sports like hockey or golf, driving, swimming, drawing, cooking) or anything in between, using Energetics will make it easier to learn and apply other things.
Energetics can erase conscious and subconscious beliefs that you are less able to learn or remember things than you really are. For example you may believe that you are terrible at math or with languages or that you can't remember names of people when you are introduced. Any or all of these beliefs may be holding you back in both work and social situations.
The belief that you aren't "good at" something causes extra stress when you are trying to learn or practise it. We now know that that extra stress makes it harder for you to learn and for your brain to retain and implement what you've learned.
With Energetics you can eliminate the beliefs (and the stresses!) that don't serve you and even install helpful beliefs like "I learn languages easily and quickly become comfortable speaking in them."
Using Energetics will make the learning process less stressful, more fun and more effective!

Tonight, I went to a local group for people (women?) involved in the health and fitness industry. It was an amazing experience. The people there were incredible. The conversation stimulated both my brain and my heart. Fascinating stuff!
Plus, it happened that this evening was a taster for experiencing Healing Touch and Reiki. I haven't ever tried either of those modalities, so it was quite interesting.
With both treatment styles I felt the energy moving around, especially with the healing touch. And both Bobbie and Kate had lovely, spiritual approaches to their tableside manner. They both had us lie on a massage type table on our backs in a candlelit room, as they worked wth our energy. The whole process was very relaxing.
This, of course, doesn't sound like Energetics at all. When I am doing Energetics for myself, I do it wherever I am (if I can move into a room without a boisterous toddler that's a big plus!) and when I'm working with anyone else, I try to do it in a place where we won't be interrupted. Naturally, if the issue is a private one, we find a place where we feel safe and comfortable talking, but candles are totally optional.
Also Energetics is rarely relaxing! You'll notice in the videos that I get loud and I move around quite a bit. I choose funny, or emotionally laden phrasing to charge people's energy. In fact, unless you are using Energetics specifically to relax or put yourself to sleep, you are likely to find that you are energized and ready to take on the world when you are through each treatment. That's part of what makes it fun!
Anyway, the learning and meeting and chatting and eating (did I mention the AMAZING raw desserts?) was great fun and I'll be sure to go back.
PS I had the opportunity to help a woman who had a headache that was a 9 out of 10 (ouch!) get rid of it while we were there. It took about 10 minutes and when we got back to the party she was feeling much more festive!
With Energetics you can change limiting beliefs, get through and over trauma, heal your body and even increase your ability to learn new skills. It really can change your life!
Are you ready to let go of those limiting beliefs? "but I don't deserve"…"I never get"…I'll never be able to…""I'm not (good, strong, smart) enough…" "I don't have enough money to…"
With Energetics you can quickly release limiting beliefs and replace them with beliefs that empower you. You can break bad habits and addictions and install habits that will help you to become strong and successful (whatever your definition of success is!).
Do you experience occasional aches and pains? Do you have constant pain or an illness that you just can't shake? Maybe you just know that you should be experiencing vibrant
health, but you aren't.
Energetics can eliminate Pain and illness, help you gain strength and flexibility, encourage weight loss, increase your energy, health and help your body to return to its best state.
"I've never done anything like this before, how hard is it to learn to do it?"
Energetics is easy to learn. I've taught it to 7 year old children in minutes. Really, anyone can do it.
The basic pattern for Energetics is available for FREE at the end of the introductory video, but if you find that at all confusing, the first video will clear up your confusion completely. We repeat the pattern over and over again, with only small variations, while we are clearing all of Audrey's pain.
(Incidently, Audrey cleared all the pain in her shoulders, that she'd been carrying for a couple of weeks in 45 minutes and it STAYED GONE. Hooray! If you have any pain, give it a try. You'll be glad you did.)
(Are you sure you don't want to see the introductory video first? What?!?!? You like to know what you could be in for before getting hooked on all the emotional salescopy?!?!? All right, I'll give away the punch line...)
or you could move on to the next phase.
Oh, except if you really want to work one on one with me or you are desperate to go on to the subscription videos and you truly can't afford them. In either case please send me a message and I'll see what I can do.
Well, that was a short blog post, so I'll flesh it out a little!
Energetics isn't a form a faith healing. When I first heard about Energy Psychology techniques (of which Energetics is a sister therapy), I thought they were completely ridiculous and definitely wouldn't work. I also thought I had nothing to lose. Well, I was right on one count!
Energetics works if you can set aside your disbelief long enough to try it. That's all. You definitely don't have to believe it will heal you of everything that's ever been wrong with your life. You just have to be willing to give it a shot.
So give it a shot! Test it out for yourself to get a feel for it. If you haven't looked at the video, put your name and email in the form and check it out.
(Oh, by the way, I love getting stories from people that Energetics helped, especialy when they start out..."I didn't think it would work for me but..." Feel free to send me one!)
Hey, I'm getting a lot of people asking me what Energetics is, so I'm writing this post.
You may notice that there is a tab on the site marked "What is Energetics". I'm not gonna rehash all the same stuff here that I have there, so If you are looking for more information, do check that tab out!
Instead, I thought I'd say a little about what Energetics isn't.
Energetics isn't a "happy pill". Sometimes we feel sad or angry or hurt or whatever and we're supposed to have that ability. Emotions are a great thing. They give us information about things we don't want to do again, they remind us that we are human beings, they give us strength and they protect us. Its great that when you get to the top of a ladder and you are trying to climb onto a roof, you are nervous or even afraid. That fear makes you cautious and that caution can keep you from an injury.
Thankfully, Energetics won't take away your ability to feel a full range of emotions or rid you of common sense! It will help you easily and gently release stuck or habitual emotions, so you can move on with your life. Whether you are experiencing a deep seated grief that is making your life look drab or you had a terrible trauma that you feel is holding you back from experiencing life, Energetics can help you move into a new range of emotions.
Energetics isn't always an instant fix. I wish I could tell you that the arthrytis in your knees that you are scheduled to have surgery on tomorrow will be gone by tonight. I can't say that. I can say that if you apply Energetics to your knees (and any apprehensions you have about the surgery) tonight, you have a high chance of sleeping better and healing faster than you would have without it.
Energetics is sometimes an instant fix. On the other hand, if you do Energetics on your knees tonight and the pain is completely gone and is still gone in the morning, you might want to speak to the surgeon before the surgery!
So that's a bit about what Energetics (is and) isn't.
The best way to understand Energetics is to watch the free introductory video and do the sample along with me! Test it out for yourself to get a feel for it. If you haven't looked at the video, put your name and email in the form (above and to the left) and check it out.
