Recently, I did a reading for a woman in her late 50′s who had two aspects in her chart indicating physical trauma. The first was Pluto square her Mars. The second was Saturn opposite her Sun. I asked her if she had ever been physically attacked. She told me that when she was 7, a gang of boys beat her up on the way to school. This brutal attack led to a whole host of emotional issues, around not feeling safe. Many of you know I am a big fan of EMDR therapy. I suggested this therapy for my client. I told her that by physically going into the brain, and releasing this early trauma, her current life issues would become more manageable. I believe past wounds influence our current life situations. I am all about healing bad memories so we can move forward. Scientists have done scans of the brain, before and after EMDR therapy. The brain actually changes after doing EMDR, and the patient is able to release traumas that get physically stuck inside the body. There is a new book, that just came out, that explains what EMDR is, and how it works. Even more importantly, it explains the spiritual side of the healing process. Anyone who is interested in removing any traumas, or any unwanted patterns of thinking, should read this book. The title is UNBURDENING SOULS AT THE SPEED OF THOUGHT, by Dr. Andrew Dobo. EMDR works quickly, and in my opinion, more efficiently that regular talk therapy. The reason for this is that EMDR works at the physical level of the brain. If any of you have experienced EMDR therapy, let me know how it helped. Please spread the word that there is hope out there for folks who are going through difficult times.
