In learning any skill, there are times
when a personal teacher may be advantageous. Although you may apply
the fundamentals of Emotional Clearing as a self-therapy, it
is also a powerful therapeutic modality when used within the therapist-client
relationship - to help you get started, or if you feel stuck, or if
you simply want the advantage of a therapist’s skill and support.
Working with a counselor might be especially helpful if you have no
previous exposure to inner work.
The central focus in Emotional Clearing Counseling is the deeply
relaxed state in which the subconscious is accessed and where healing
spontaneously occurs. It is the meditative-hypnotic state, where the
therapist acts as facilitator, energetically helping the client to enter
alpha, enabling them to go deeper than they can on their own. This is
effected primarily by the therapist entering alpha and energetically
influencing the client through a psychic vibrational resonance that
the therapist has been trained to induce. Entrainment technology also
may be judiciously used, along with breathwork. The therapist also consciously
channels healing energy to the client. The client is supported by the
energy of the therapist, feels safe, and is guided through the process.
Developing the special sensitivity for guiding a client through deep
alpha-state process is a major part of the training for certification
that John performs with therapists.
In the alpha state, there is no attempt to recondition the subconscious
to achieve behavioral goals. Alpha state is used only for healing of
feelings, through communion with deep levels of the subconscious soul,
not reconditioning, which we consider intrusive and undesirable. Negative
behavior, including addictions, usually derives from self-rejecting
attempts to avoid feelings and will change spontaneously and dramatically
after feelings are released; the attempt to change behavior without
first clearing underlying feelings is futile.
What conditions do we work with?
general emotional discontent.
• Anxiety, fear about personal safety or money.
• Anger, powerlessness, helplessness, coercion.
• Sexual frustration, incapacity, or acting out.
• Lack of nurturing in your life.
• Self-esteem issues, frustration attaining life goals.
• Heartbreak, loneliness, jealousy, hatred.
• Relationship issues with loved ones, co-workers, parents,
• Addictions, including drugs, alcohol, smoking, food, work,
• The emotional component of any health condition.
• Trauma of all types.
To recognize that you have an issue with ongoing negative
feelings is a courageous and mature step to intelligently taking care
of yourself. Emotional suppression is a condition that pervades the
world today, resulting in the chaos we see all around us. Those of us
who pro-actively work on ourselves are amongst the vanguard, healing
not only ourselves but collective humanity.
How did EMOTIONAL CLEARING begin?
This system of inner work was developed by John Ruskan. It is a brilliant,
original synthesis of Eastern spiritual and Western psychological principles
that John presents in his book EMOTIONAL CLEARING, published
by Random House. The system may be self-applied, but it has been found
that a trained facilitator can be highly desirable at times to initiate
the approach and provide guidance and energetic support. Typically,
this enables you to get faster results than you might on your own, and
helps you break through blocks that might discourage you from doing
What is EMOTIONAL CLEARING like?
Under the guidance of your facilitator, you sit or lie as you prefer,
with closed eyes, and are guided into a deep alpha-state relaxation
using a unique, powerful induction technique. The first stage of the
work is to familiarize you with this new deep meditative relaxation,
where many superficial stressful feelings automatically evaporate.
After you learn to be at home here, you and your facilitator will explore
your issues in the same alpha-state. In addition to the feelings of
which you are aware, it is likely other, more primary core feelings
will emerge from the subconscious under the skillful direction of the
facilitator. You will be guided to release all these feelings inwardly,
using unique, proprietary techniques, resulting in a thorough cleansing.
No outward expression of feelings is required.
Releasing is effected through the deep inner experiencing of the feelings.
This kind of experiencing is different from what we are normally used
to. It is a spiritual experiencing, characterized by the presence of
universal healing energies that the facilitator is trained to awaken
in you, and a strong sense of witnessing and peacefulness, even with
very painful feelings.
It has been found through extensive experience that telephone counseling
is as effective as in-person work.
How many sessions will I need?
EMOTIONAL CLEARING is not a superficial quick-fix, but goes
to the deep core structure that keeps any feeling recurring. The work
you do here will be significant, addressing major life patterns and
allowing them to realign themselves in positive ways. It is a non-religious
spiritual program, removing emotional blocks to the evolutionary expansion
of consciousness, opening to unconscious higher guidance, and will fit
in with any spiritual path you may be on.
The work may be considered to be both short and long-term. Usually when
starting the work, dramatic releases occur quickly, in the first few
sessions, and major life changes can follow soon after. It becomes apparent
how much our suppressed feelings have been influencing our perceptions,
limiting us, and attracting negative conditions or people.
However, as we get into the work, we realize that the core patterns
we are addressing have formed over long periods of time, if not lifetimes,
and it would be unrealistic to expect overnight change. We see we must
be patient with ourselves and allow time for deep regeneration. Such
an attitude, in itself, prepares us for maximum progress. Anyone who
has done any kind of deep inner work will understand the truth of this.
A short-term program of 5 to 10 sessions with your facilitator will
clear current significant feelings and get you through issues that are
coming up for you now, and make sure you know how to successfully process
feelings on your own. At that point, you may consider if longer term
work and ongoing emotional/energetic support may be an advantage for
you as you engage any "lifetime clearing mission." People
who do choose to continue with counseling support do so because they
find it a wise investment.
