Emotional Clearing Therapy is a spiritual, feeling-oriented
method of facilitating emotional release and growth, either on your own
or within the therapist/client setting.
“Emotional Release” means to release painful
feelings that have become trapped within us, or suppressed, instead of having
been cleared when they first occurred. Traditional psychotherapy has assumed
that the origins of suppressed feelings is in childhood, and it has been
found that progress can be made based on this assumption; there is usually
a childhood component to our major issues. Transpersonal psychology, however,
has broadened the scope and effectiveness of feelings work by suggesting
that the roots of our most difficult feelings and circumstances are in past
existences, and in our karma.
However, while Emotional Clearing agrees with the
possibility of this broader view, it is important that EC is a present-centered
therapy. We work with present issues, and our feelings as they are now.
The key understanding here is that while feelings may have originated in
the past, they become projected onto present circumstances; as we clear
feelings now, we are clearing the residue of the past. And, often we find
in deeper EC work that past memories either of childhood or beyond spontaneously
come up into awareness if needed. On the other hand, it is common to find
that issues become cleared with no past recall coming up or being needed
to complete clearing a present issue.
