Psychological Reversal Procrastination and Self Sabotage.
In emotional freedom therapy.
Psychological reversal is simply subconscious sabotage. Well, not really.
As "The Doctor" says."It's not really like that but if it helps".
Not as bad as it may at first appear, your control mind the part that handles the show is attempting successfully to protect you from some kind of pain or injury. Something that at an unconscious level is saying. "Hay, if I do this I will suffer emotionally or physically we don't want that. I will take control and make this person avoid doing this".
It can for example decide that you being wealthy is a bad thing because your friends or family may feel bad, because they have not done the same, or just think of all the tax you will have to pay, or people may not like me, or the imaginary man in the sky will get annoyed.
It will make up what appears to be rational lies for doing it. It does have the cognitive interface of a four year old after all. So making things up and fantasy and avoidance are easy for it.
I will make them forget, make up excuses, and get them to lie to them selves and do all manor of things to allow them to have reasons to avoid doing this. We sometimes get this with clients who have totally forgot to do their drills for the past week, or make up memory problems so they can't remember the order of tapping.
Little voices in their minds, turn off their reality checker and create nasty little emotions that will drive them away from what they are consciously deciding.
So it does have a positive intent that's the good news.
The bad news is that unless you deal with psychological reversal it then you may well be subject to years of self sabotage and procrastination, when you keep shooting yourself in the foot and making all kinds of excuses for not achieving your goals and dreams.
Just like a computer you have been programmed since birth to be a certain way, so that you do all the things and behave in ways that usually allow you to live in whatever society or group you end up being around.
Great stuff but rules change and time moves on and you grow up and your life changes. These "Writings on Your Walls" the stuff your subconscious mind goes to in order to find out what rules you live by often are years out of date. Many are also rules you made up when you were younger and just did not know how things work.
For many years therapy had a glitch unless you were lucky enough to be helped by someone who really knew what they were doing. Many times what should have worked, didn't. It was as if the persons own mind was stopping them from the outcome, it was.
You may have wondered what rubbing the sore spot when you do your eft drills is all about. Well, it's there in order to begin to turn off psychological reversal, so that you can get the results you want. That's why often when you have been doing it for a while, you sometimes notice that rubbing your sore spots is all it takes in order to get rid of a problem.
So Psychological Reversal and Procrastination and Self Sabotage all have a positive intent at a subconscious level of mind. Emotional freedom techniques give you some amazing tools for changing this situation and becoming congruent with yourselves so that all parts of your mind are singing to the same tune.
You now have a way of updating the old software and programming yourselves in the way you desire. You will have todo some personal work and develop self honesty and awareness. But hay, it's only going to effect the rest of your life.
