Emotional Polarity Technique (EPT)
EPT is an innovative holistic approach that combines energy, intuition and forgiveness to effect health and healing. The state of mind is a real, physical, electromagnetic, quantum and chemical flow that switches groups of genes on or off in both positive or negative directions based on choices and subsequent reactions. Scientists refer to this as Epigenetics. EPT involves balancing the brain’s and body’s electromagnetic energy aided in part by magnets. EPT integrates our body’s energy systems to assist in physical and emotional healing. Clients often echo the sentiment, “I experienced more relief in my first session than talk therapy ever provided”.
Why we use EPT
We use Emotional Polarity Technique (EPT) to help people heal and be free to live with purpose. Whether we realize it or not, our subconscious mind directs our life. With EPT we uncover and replace old beliefs that keep us mired. It’s like an old, corrupted file on your computer that needs to be updated or deleted and replaced.
Connection to self is often the first thing we lose when life gets hard. EPT helps you reconnect with your true self first, so you can then create connections with family, friends, and God that are authentic and life-giving. We can open up new ways forward in your relationships, your career, your personal life, and your spiritual life.
People who fail to respond to medicine and traditional talk therapy often find healing with EPT. It is likely that unhealed, unreleased emotional hurts are the cause of the chronic problems of pain and unhappiness in your life. Many times, the cause of the problem is invisible as it is an unresolved emotion. It’s the hard stuff that happens that never gets resolved that causes problems. EPT uses the body and mind as the doorway to the soul for forgiveness.
What are emotions from a biological lens?
Emotions are electrochemical signals that carry messages throughout the body. The molecules of emotion, a neuropeptide, change the chemistry and electricity of every cell in the body and mind. These chemicals are released in response to our interpretation of a specific trigger. It takes our brains about 1/4 second to identify the trigger, and about another 1/4 second to produce the chemicals. Emotion chemicals are released throughout our bodies, not just in our brains, and they form a kind of feedback loop between our brains and bodies.
What is an emotional blockage?
It is stored cellular memories that were not processed properly, often times unresolved heartbreaking events from childhood that lacked mature perception. (Popped balloon, neighborhood/school change, appropriate parental discipline…) Eventually, everyone gets stuck. Life fails to live up to our expectations, and as a result, we suffer. Traumatic events are unavoidable. Energy moves unrestricted through a healthy body but life’s traumas, however small, can be stored in a reactive manner in our body if not processed properly at the time. These stored cellular memories block energy flow and can result in emotional suffering and physical illness and disease. When emotions are repressed, the network pathways get blocked, stopping the flow of the vital chemicals that run both our biology and our behavior. It is now understood that negative emotional energy can lodge in organs contributing to physical disease.
How can emotional blockages effect physical health?
The American Institute of Stress research shows that 98% of mental and physical illnesses come from our thought life. Emotional blockages are neuropeptide chemicals that carry an electrical charge. The electrical signals in our brains and bodies affect the way cells interact and function. Electrochemical messages are passed between brain cells. Similar signals are passed to every cell in the body. Each has receptor sites, a kind of “mail box” for these electrochemical messengers. Receptors are on every cell in your body. They actually are mini electrical pumps. When the receptor is activated by a matching “molecule of emotion” the receptor passes a charge into the cell changing the cell’s electrical frequency as well as its chemistry.
I have not experienced abuse or severe trauma, so can I still benefit from EPT?
Yes, we all have emotional blockages. Memories from childhood lack mature perception, therefore, we often find that difficulties experienced as an adult are rooted in unresolved events experienced as a child. For many, the emotional patterns that cause emotional or physical dysfunction does not come from an abusive or obviously traumatic situation, rather from typical life experiences, which were not resolved appropriately.
Forgiveness has been proven to lower blood pressure, eliminate chronic pain, lessen effects of physical and emotional pain. Forgiveness acknowledges we cannot change the past and allows movement forward. It is the first and most important step in moving forward. It is a command from God. Forgiveness heals our soul. In many respects, forgiveness is about as Christian as it gets and choosing live-giving confessions with our words is an age-old biblical principle. Proverbs 18:21 says, “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat of its fruit.” Forgiveness is the greatest gift we all have to resolve emotional conflicts. EPT will help you know what to forgive and how to forgive. You are gently walked through each step.
What does forgiveness mean?
It is widely accepted that there are two types of forgiveness – Decisional and Emotional. In EPT our focus is Emotional forgiveness.
“Emotional forgiveness” involves replacing the negative emotions with positive feelings like compassion, sympathy, and empathy. Research shows that emotional forgiveness is where most health benefits lie. This type of forgiveness can reduce our stressful reaction to a transgression. This is important because stress is known to suppress your immune system and to increase your risk for cardiovascular issues. Emotional forgiveness also keeps us from ruminating over the wrong that was done to us and negative rumination is harmful. It is associated with a number of mental health problems, including obsessive-compulsive disorder, anxiety, and depression.
“Decisional forgiveness” on the other hand involves deciding to forgive a personal offense and letting go of angry and resentful thoughts and feelings toward the person who has wronged you. Decisional forgiveness is more important in repairing and reconciling relationships.
How is EPT different from traditional talk therapy?
EPT relies on the science of the body – not what you feel like sharing in any given session. Feelings literally alter the electrical frequencies generated by the body, producing a nonverbal communication. Through muscle testing these emotional blockages are pinpointed so that in each session resolution occurs. Most all the talking resolves around forgiveness statements and replacing negative limiting beliefs with God’s truth. As Dr. Candace Pert said, “Your body is your subconscious mind and you can’t heal it by talk alone.” And Proverbs 20:5 states, “The purposes of a person’s heart are deep waters, but one who has insight draws them out.”
Will I benefit from EPT if I am already seeing a therapist?
Talk therapy and EPT are valuable in different ways. If you have a therapist, you enjoy working with, that’s great! EPT can still help you. Some clients bring me the issues that come up in talk therapy. Other clients like to process their EPT revelations with their therapist to explore what they learned about themselves. The biggest difference is in EPT the practitioner does the work to find out what’s going on in your subconscious. With that information, the source of the negative pattern is pinpointed. The process is collaborative with the practitioner doing most of the “heavy lifting” so the client doesn’t have to.
EPT is a guided and active approach to healing that, like any therapy, it may feel emotional at times. The difference is that once the feelings are acknowledged and released, you feel different, and very often much better and lighter.
What does an EPT session look like?
Each EPT session is unique to the client’s specific needs and their identified focus. A session lasts 60-90 minutes. We begin by establishing the focus of the session – what is bothering you, what do you want to accomplish through today’s session? Then muscle testing (applied kinesiology) allows your body to reveal the subconscious emotional root of the focus. Once we’ve found it, we use breathing techniques and magnets to allow the body to let go of that emotional energy more easily. Lastly, you’ll be coached through forgiveness statements and positive affirmations created specifically for your experience and your goals to get you moving in the direction you want to go.
Does EPT work for children?
Yes, and they generally love it. Children can often shift even more quickly than adults and their sessions are generally much shorter.
What should I expect after an EPT session?
More energy and a sense that a weight has been lifted is most common. Though a continued release of emotions and tiredness is not unusual either. Both my husband and I have experienced both. I recommend increased water and a nap if needed.
