I want to share with you my own extraordinary experience with Emotional Treatments and GSF. The following article includes a series of anecdotes that have defined my view of emotional treatments and will hopefully provide you with a better understanding of their power to heal.
“My own resistance to Emotional Treatments”
There I was at the advanced I NAET (Nambudripad’s Allergy Elimination Techniques) seminar after a long flight only 9 days after 9-11. It had been an eerie experience going through the nearly empty airports, and having a whole row to myself on the plane. “Am I crazy to get on a plane?” I asked myself. When my rosary bracelet broke and fell off in the toilet I wondered “Is this a sign that I should go back home?” “No.” I countered as I fished the bracelet from the toilet. “I need to go to this seminar.”
NAET Founder, Devi Nambudripad opened the seminar with “Let’s begin by treating the trauma we all feel after the terrible events last week.” I wasn’t aware that the topic of the seminar was emotional treatments. I was new at NAET and had so many questions about vials, muscle testing, reactions, and the like. I had read “Goodbye to Illness”, but had already decided that I wasn’t doing any of that “emotional stuff”. After Devi completed the lecture part, and we began practicing, I became indignant. I was so resistant that one of the assistants mentioned that maybe I had some emotional issues that I needed treatment for. Ridiculous! My friends would testify that I was perfectly well adjusted emotionally! OK…as well adjusted as any NAET practitioner! But my reluctance to treat emotions came from my misconception that the patients would experience emotional outbursts, release pent up negative energy, and recall horrible memories, and I didn’t want “that kind “of practice.
“The Universe and Mala attempt to teach the doctor a lesson”
As we all know when we need to learn something, the universe puts lessons in our path. At a later seminar, I had a very swollen finger that I had been treating aggressively with no results. I asked Mala for help, and after muscle testing she said “it’s an emotion related to a sweet drink and it’s associated with your father”. No, no no, it couldn’t be an emotion! I hurt it pulling my two dogs apart from a fight. It was an injury.
After Mala’s patient questioning I recalled the incident. I saw my two dogs tear into each other growling and biting, and I feared they would kill each other. I threw myself into the mix and tried pulling them apart, all the while screaming for help. But the windows were closed and no one heard my screams. After I finally yanked them apart, my husband happened to walk outside and found me sitting on the back steps, crying and shaking. He reassured me that the dogs and I were OK, and told me to go have a glass of wine and relax. A few weeks later on what happened to be my deceased father’s birthday, and I showed my still swollen finger to my sister. She said “Dad had that same finger swollen.” I remember that I felt like I might faint.
I had ignored all of that emotional trauma in my efforts at splinting, adjusting, icing, and lasering my finger.
When Mala had me recall the event in my mind while she treated me, the finger returned to normal size and function while I was still at the seminar!
Yet, I still resisted doing any of that emotional work. Sure it worked for me, but how would I explain it to patients?
UNTIL… the words of my father and a lesson from a 15 year old boy
“Myles age 15 – The doctor finally gets the lesson”
I was treating the teenager for terrible food allergies and aggression. We were on testosterone for the 5th time when his mother told me they were considering a military boarding school.
I heard the words of my father (a wonderful Chiropractor) as if he were still alive and standing in the room. “If you know of anything that will help a patient to get better, you owe it to them to do it.”
Sooo…. I stammered some apologetic explanation that I had something that might seem weird, and I didn’t know if he was open to it, but that emotions can be measured and the energy of the emotion put in a vial, and I could possibly treat him for it, of course assuming he was open.
The boy looked up at me and said “Dr. Robbins, emotions in a vial, food in a vial. One’s no different than the other. Put in my hand and let’s do it.” I treated anger with testosterone.
He cleared. He didn’t go to military boarding school. My father smiled down on me and I now had the explanation for treating emotions.
Explanation for an emotional vial
It’s physics. Everything vibrates at a particular frequency that can be measured and lasered into a vial. You are either in harmony with it or not. Just like food in a vial, we have emotions in a vial
Suggestions for emotional vials
1. The more the patient can articulate the emotion, the more effectively you can target the proper one.
2. But having said that, always rely on muscle testing several vials and then ask for priority. It may surprise you and the patient. Don’t doubt the system.
3. If possible combine a physical and emotional vial together: serotonin and depressed, testosterone and anger etc.
The life changing vial GSF
If someone told me that I could have one and only one vial; which one would it be?
GSF. No doubt. That vial has helped change more lives than any other single vial. And to think Devi gave us that for free at a conference just like this one!
Explanation for GSF
Dr. Devi Nambudripad told us to use this GSF vial if someone needs a breakthrough. I have seen miracles IF the person is truly ready for a breakthrough. Are you?”
“Logan age 16 – One of my favorite people”
Logan is one of my most favorite patients in 26 years. In truth, he is one of my favorite people. He has Asberger’s syndrome and is truly an inspiration in determination and courage. While I admire him greatly, that is not the primary reason that he is one of my favorite people. I enjoy him, and relate to him. When his mother encouraged him to attend a class to learn to have better skills in conversations, he asked “what if I don’t want to talk to them?”
When Logan comes to the office, he rushes headlong through the door, turns off the noise machine, that makes bird sounds, and either walks directly up to me to tell me what he needs, or if he doesn’t see me, he asks “is she ready for me now?”
Logan was a senior in high school and refusing to do his assignments. His mother, a tiny little Chinese woman with a strong will and bones of steel, followed him into my office. She declared that after his treatment she was taking him to a homeless shelter to drop him off for several hours to show him firsthand where failure got people. I asked him if he was ready for a breakthrough. He defined clearly to me that he knew what he was doing wrong and was ready for a change. I treated him for GSF, and sent a prayer on the wind as he followed his mom out the door to go experience a homeless shelter.
7 months later
Logan, as usual, bustled in to the office, turned off the noise machine, walked directly up to me and announced. “I had a good year. I got my driver’s permit, graduated from high school, and was accepted into Southern Polytechnic University. But I had a bad week. I was inappropriate to my family on my birthday. Will you help me?”.
I treated GSF and Brain. Again many months passed. I knew from his mom that Logan was at university, and had gotten his driver’s license.
This time Logan walked into the office but did not turn off the birds! He sat in the waiting room. I walked out to him and asked how he was. He answered, “I am good. I am a college man now. How was your new year?”
He explained to me that college was stressful, and asked if I could help him. He defined clearly that he was doing his work without procrastination, but that when it got difficult, he quit too soon. After some muscle testing we found that frustration was the primary emotion. I treated it in combination with GSF. I have no doubt that Logan will be successful in his college endeavor.
“Carolyn and the tree through the roof”
This patient came to me because of stabbing ice pick headaches in her temple. The stabbing pains came on 20 -30 times an HOUR!! She was only 47 years old and looked 60. While she talked, she repeatedly bent her head forward, squeezed her eyes shut, and held her temple for long moments, only to look up and pick up on the conversation exactly where she left off.
I always ask a patient when their condition began. She had one daughter and had tried unsuccessfully to get pregnant for a second time. After much heartache, they had decided to adopt a child from Russia. That was the beginning of the ice picks to the temple.
I knew that we needed to treat hormones and many physical vials, but felt strongly that emotions were a huge factor. Despite some attempts on my part to question her about the emotions, to do some emotional treatments, and to encourage her to self-treat using eft, she never really followed through and the headaches continued. She had resisted taking medication of any kind, but finally relented and began to get some relief. It at least gave her some increased ability to function and to think. That began an obsessive cleaning and organizing frenzy. I suspected that this was another attempt to keep from looking at the real problem.
I later learned from Carolyn’s sister that she was seeing a therapist and truly looking at the problems in her marriage. I was delighted!!
She came in for an adjustment one day. I sensed that she was ready for a breakthrough. I treated her for GSF.
8 weeks later
Carolyn had asked her husband to move out the house. After some distance from him, she started realizing how serious the problems in her marriage were. She went with her daughters to Colorado for a visit with family. While there, a neighbor called with the news that a tree had fallen through her roof. After cutting her vacation short, and getting her girls and her on a flight back to Atlanta, she arrived home to see that the tree had fallen through the roof and directly onto the bed that she had shared for 15 years with her husband!! That was the sign she needed. She also moved out of the house, filed for divorce, and is moving forward with her life. She looks much younger already. She eventually wants to get off at least some of the medication, but I encouraged her to let some more time pass, and get some more care before attempting that.
“A baby will be born during this symposium”
Becky was a 30-year-old very sensitive, intuitive, colorful patient who did very well after treating for food and seasonal allergies. In fact, it’s difficult to remember now how much she was suffering when I first met her. She collaborated well with me, did her avoidances without fail, and got great results. But she sure did have reactions during the avoidance time!
In August 2008, she told me that she was going off birth control pills to prepare to get pregnant. I was delighted to hear that and felt like it was perfect timing as she was very healthy. I treated her for hormones at that visit.
She came for an appointment in early September with a rash on her arms. Muscle testing revealed that she drank something while she was hot to cause the rash. She recalled dancing at an outdoor party in the summer heat while drinking iced tea. As I began to treat her for tea and heat, she mentioned that they were ready to start trying to conceive so I treated for GSF also. I told Becky about the miracles that I had seen with GSF, and shared with her that I was writing this paper in the hopes of presenting it at the 2009 symposium. I offered the idea that if she were to get pregnant, I would add her story to my paper. In her exuberant way, she said, “If I’m pregnant during the symposium, I could go with you and be a living testimonial!”
8 weeks later
Becky arrived at the office virtually vibrating. She looked like one of those puppies that is so excitedly wagging their tail that their whole body vibrates with the energy of it. She exclaimed that she is 6 weeks pregnant and they conceived on the first time they tried. The baby is due during the 2009 symposium!! I joked that “I guess you won’t be there to deliver your testimonial in person. Maybe we could put it on you-tube and deliver it that way!!”
“Cathy and the doctorate program”
Cathy came in to see me with classic adrenal burnout. She was exhausted, yet not sleeping. Her “joye de vivre” as she explained was gone. She was experiencing menopausal symptoms of depression and hot flashes. After a short time of NAET and supplements, she told me that was singing in the morning and her husband had remarked “I got my wife back”.
Several months later, I again saw her and she looked awful. When I asked her what was wrong, she said “I hate my job. I have to quit”. Her husband had been telling me that for a year!!! I smiled, then she got angry with me and asked ”why are you laughing when I’m so upset?” I said that I wasn’t laughing, but that I often see people change their lives after they get well. I explained that when she was so exhausted and in burn out, she couldn’t even have picked her head up enough to look at her job and realize she hated it because she lacked the energy to do anything to remedy it. At a later visit, she related that she had not quit her job yet because she really wanted to get a doctorate in Spanish language, and there was no program in the state of Georgia. She looked miserable, and she had even gone home early from work to go to bed. I treated with GSF in September 2008.
4 weeks later
Cathy had gone by the University of Georgia where she had done her graduate work to visit one of her professors. He shared with her that the university was starting a PhD program in January 2009, and they would be delighted to have her in the program, and she could be an assistant professor to earn free tuition and salary. I laughed and told her that she was a powerful woman indeed to have created a doctoral program in her field just at the time she needed it!
As a side note, Cathy’s husband has related to me that with the downturn in the economy, Cathy has not left her job yet and the PhD program has been delayed until September 2009.
Hopefully at this symposium I can say she has quit and is enrolled to start her PhD.
I chose these cases of treatment with GSF to encourage you to use it for your patients. I wanted you to see the power of it. Devi handed this tool to us and those of us who have embraced it have changed hundreds or thousands of lives from her gift.
Yet I have some cases where nothing I could detect changed in the person’s life. Upon review, I believe that the key to the big breakthroughs is timing. I believe that those patients who did not get the miracle were not ready for a breakthrough in their lives. Those times I treated with no visible results were when I was ready for them to have a breakthrough yet I think deep down they weren’t ready to give up their suffering. They were still getting something out of it. As good practitioners, we know to get out or the way with patient’s issues, but I saw such miraculous benefits from this vial that I got overly enthusiastic on a few occasions. No harm was ever done, but perhaps I added to the patient’s frustration.
Suggestions for GSF: All rules relate to Timing
1.Basics first. Rules are rules for a reason. It NEVER pays to jump ahead, no matter how badly they are suffering.
2. Be a doctor, not a monkey
I remember attending a seminar when a doctor repeatedly asked Devi questions that began with “why don’t you just treat this or that…?” You’ve all been there. He keeps on and on with questions. You wish Devi would tell him to shut up. Finally, she said. “Do you want to be a doctor or a monkey? I could teach a monkey to push those points along the spine, if that’s all it took, but it takes a doctor to know to what to treat and when.”
Treat physical vials related to emotions prior to GSF, especially amino acids, serotonin, dopamine, GABA, L-Dopa, salsolinol, hormones, or others. Use whatever methods you are confident in to determine what vials are appropriate for your patient and how many. Sometimes it comes down to gut feeling and instinct coupled with experience.
3. Treat with GSF only after some other emotional work, with either NAET, or a different type of emotional therapy.
In conclusion, please use these testimonials to unleash the incredible power of treating emotions with NAET, and especially to use GSF for the great benefit of your patients!
