Exactly what is happening when I am having an Energy Healing Technique with Rapid Eye? A psychological/physiological recap by Dr. Alexander is – the body is reprocessing the information through REM sleep duplication. During REM sleep the body is doing a neurological reconsolidation process. This process allows the body to revisit the event without the emotional sting normally associated with traumatic (trauma is any event we don’t have the emotional tools to deal with) events. See it from many different perspectives and create a different response.
During bilateral stimulation (wand movement) along with verbal imagery the body engages the brainstem while at the same time inhibits the distress generating functions and autonomic arousal of the PAG (periaqueductal gray) emotionality and pain experiencing or pain reduction part of the brain. Through inhibiting the distress functions, this “dials down” the body’s flight/fright/freeze response and allows for more adaptive processing of the distress….rather than simply replaying the initial trauma. It’s easy to see how someone with PTSD can get caught in being traumatized over and over due to this replay of the initial event. With bilateral stimulation of Rapid Eye more of the core midbrain is involved in processing which allows a second look at the affective, cognitive and physiological components of a traumatic memory which may have been stored in a faulty manner due to the emotional impact (sting) of the stressful event. This replay of the event allows the body to bring a more normal adaptive information processing (which is seen in non-traumatic experiences) to the traumatic event and create resolution.
What does this mean in our personal work? The greatest understanding we can gain here is to realize that when we are traumatized (we ALL have trauma from birth) we aren’t able to process the event in an adaptive way to create a learning event out of it. Because of the heightened chemical response in the body, we are in survival mode and the body is shutting down extraneous processing in order to survive. In doing our personal work with adaptive processing technique in RET, we are able to revisit the event, apply more processes and create a memory consolidation that can then over time lose some of the emotional charge of the original event. This allows us to have increased energy and awareness in our day to day life.
