What is Energy
Psychology (EP)?
EP combines cognitive interventions
(eg. imaginal exposure to traumatic
memories or visualization of peak
performance)…
…with interventions to rebalance
components of the human vibrational
matrix (biofield, meridians, energy
centers)…
…to facilitate rapid positive individual
change and optimal
psychotherapeutic outcomes
The EP Family of Methods
Interventions that focus on the
Human Vibrational Matrix in
order to assist with mental,
emotional and psychospiritual
issues are considered to be
members of the Energy
Psychology family of methods.
Meridians
Major pathways of
energy flow

Ötzi the Iceman
A well-preserved
natural mummy
of a man from
about 3300 BC,
found in 1991 in
a glacier of the
Ötztal Alps.
Tattoos
He had 57 tattoos, some of which were located on or near acupuncture points
that coincide with the modern points that would be used to treat symptoms of
diseases that Ötzi seems to have suffered from, such as osteoarthrosis.
The figure shows four tattoo
groups, two on the left side and
two on the right side of the spine.
They lie directly over acupuncturepoints of the bladder meridian. In
acupuncture, needling at specific
points modifies the underlying "qi
energy" affecting inner organs, pain
perception, and inflammatory
processes. The traditional points
are predominantly located on 12
principal and two extraordinary
vessels. Each meridian corresponds
to an organ or organ system.
Acupuncture Point
Schematic
from William Tiller in
Science and Human Transformation
The meridian pumps ions to the surface of the skin, where
they broaden like an umbrella. The high conductivity zone
created forms a transmission/reception mechanism at the
acupuncture point, which is about 1 mm in size.

Personal Reflection
Write down 3 emotional issues
and reflect for a moment on
how different they look
when we consider them to be a result of
energy disruptions.
Looking through the lens of
the Discovery Statement,
how do you feel about these issues now?

Addictions Definitions
 An Allergy of the body and an obsession of the mind…,
Alcoholics Anonymous
 Addiciton is the misdirected spiritual path. ~Christina
Grof
ASAM
Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of the brain reward,
motivation, memory and related circuitry. Dysfunction in
the circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological,
social and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an
individual pathologically pursuing reward him/or relief by
substance use and other behaviors
Addiction
 Let’s examine it through the lens of a psycho-energetic,
psycho-spiritual model.
 Addiction as dis-ease
 Dis-ease is energetic
 Progression as energy, Traumas leading to Limiting
Beliefs
 Craving as energy…
Craving Protocol
 Karate Chop Spot (KC)
 Under the Eye (UE)
 Under the Arm (UA)
 Collar Bone (CB)
 If needed, 9 Gamut
Addiction is Familial
 Codependency
 Dysfunctional Relationships
 The energy of family addictions is a
whole other workshop…and
yes…families are psycho-energetic.
Addiction is Spiritual
 Spirit is energy
 Disconnection from Higher Power /
Universal Creative Force
 “Addiciton practice replaces spiritual
practice.” ~ Joseph Chilton Pearce
PhD
Ancient Spiritual Roots of
Addictive Processes
 Alcohol: The ‘spirits” used by the
shamans
 Tobacco: the shaman’s pipe held the
tobacco
 Our fore-bearers held the “secrets” of
herbal healing
Ancient Roots
 Money
 Process addictions such as, credit cards, money,
shopping and gambling replaced the bartering that was
the natural exchange of old communities worldwide.
 It was a system based on mutuality and fairness while
the modern economic system is based on greed and
power (mid-brain), which feeds the process addictions.
 Addiction to media may be a replacement of our “inner
vision”. (Third Eye or 6th Chakra)

Practice Time

 Find a partner, Get right to it
 Counselor: Practice describing the Discovery Statement, offer

 Operate the Constricted Breathing Technique as demonstrated
 Linguistic Hints: “Even though I have constricted breathing at
a _____, I deeply and completely accept myself.”
 “Even though I can only fill my lungs up to a _____, I deeply
and completely accept myself.”
 “My constricted breath…my lungs…”
4. DISRUPTIONS RESPOND BETTER
TO DIRECT ATTENTION

What We Have Learned
• Energy disruptions are found in Specific Events
• Specific Events can group together to become
emotional issues
• We liken Specific Events to table legs
• We liken Emotional Issues to tabletops supported
by Specific Event table legs
• We clear Specific Event table legs methodically
one by one
• The Generalization Effect will impact on table legs
with similar emotional themes
Instructions for Exercise
‘TELL THE STORY’ TECHNIQUE
• Rate intensity at the thought of telling the story
• Lower intensity to under 3 with global statements
• Ask client to tell the story
• Remind them to STOP if there is ANY intensity
• Use EFT on every intense aspect
• Continue until there is no intensity
• Ask client to vividly imagine and try to get upset
• Use EFT on any further aspects that come up
