Client's Report of IEMT
A recipient client of IEMT reported the following. The practitioner was Odette Wheeler, who is based in Farnborough, Hampshire, UK.
Prior to working with Odette had had encountered the same demoralising, debilitating condition based in a serious of incidents that happened in my childhood. Because of the severity in my thoughts I was uncomfortable at best and scared at worst, of being in the same room as a certain person. Odette walked me through the process of IEMT. ... Then she worked her magic!
As I was asked to think of this person and the things that I associated with them and the things that took place to make me so uncomfortable I engaged completely with the emotion. I was in a state of high anxiety and feeling very uncomfortable. I could see, feel and experience the past in that situation and it was as if I was back there. I was sweating, scratching my arms to stop the pain and I was crying. It was horrible but Odette helped me to understand that I needed to feel that intensity to be able to feel released.
Odette used IEMT. I followed her closely and she was incredibly calm, kind, focused and centred on me. The process did not take a long time but needed to be reiterated time and again to solidify its impact.
After the session with Odette and IEMT I was exhausted but not in a bad way. I was light headed, I was slightly disoriented, but I felt an amazing feeling of calm. I did not feel that anything had shifted but I felt different in myself. After breaking state I went back to the situation and felt less engaged with it. I felt removed. I felt I was witnessing something but I wasn’t enduring it.
My situation was based on abuse at a young age. The abuser is a family member and has never been confronted. He is at many family gatherings. I have never been able to feel even comfortable in his presence and have never been able to keep eye contact as my skin would crawl with memories. I would be fearful, nervous, jittery and uncomfortable in his presence.
One month after IEMT I had to attend a family gathering. The abuser was there. On the way to the gathering I didn’t think about him, I didn’t get nervous about seeing him, I felt disdain but not fear. While at the gathering I was able to engage in conversation as a superficial level. I was able to remain totally calm in his presence. I was able to keep eye contact for a short while. I was not fearful, I was not nervous; I was not jittery or uncomfortable. I felt able to tolerate him.
The most amazing part of the IEMT journey was that I didn’t have it at the forefront of my mind all the time. I wasn’t doing mantras to keep calm, I needed no lucky talisman and I wasn’t doing breathing exercises. The IEMT has slipped into my mind but wasn’t at the forefront which meant that I didn’t feel I was relying on it.
It had worked. It continues to work
