‘You need to go deal with childhood trauma, you need to deal with your adult trauma. And if you try to escape, because that’s what people did 100 years ago, 500, 1000 years ago, you would run to the convent, go to escape the troubles of the world in the monastery, go be an anchor ride, be in the desert, be in the forest, a forest hermit, get away from things. And nowadays we don’t have to. We have EFT in Doctor’s offices, we have EFT in hospitals, we have EFT in veterans centres, we have EFT doing it with people who have survived terrible, terrible events. And so clearing trauma is the first thing to do. Then, when you clear trauma, you then work on your potential, and developing a spiritual practice, developing meditation and then you start to hit the peak, the mountain top and that state of self-transcendence.’
Dr Dawson Church
Dr Dawson Church is highly motivated to not see people suffer. No matter how many people he speaks to, or presents to where so many share their stories, whilst they might look good, they may have youth, they have wealth and health and affluence, wonderful jobs and careers, they’re actually miserable.
But none of that suffering is actually objectively real, it’s all created by worry in the mind. Our brains are simply built, structurally by evolution, to worry. It’s the way our ancestors survived. And our brain defaults to worry today.
People have very little objective threat to survival yet they are often consumed with anxiety, depression and with stress… and Dawson just wants that to stop! The tools we have nowadays in psychology, spirituality, body work and movement, prove there are so many ways with a weight of scientific evidence that this stuff works.
This is a beautiful podcast where Dawson explains how to research, how to look for what you need to get through traumatic times, how to manage your emotions and what are the key elements to relax and feel more love.
Two of the greatest tools Dawson explains are the powers of EFT – emotional freedom technique and Meditation. EFT heals the trauma and. Meditation can take you to the mountain top and make you feel orgasmically divine!
The point higher than self-actualisation is actually self-transcendence. That’s where you want to be in daily meditation. But you cannot get there effectively if traumatised. This is where EFT comes in.
Clearing trauma and then moving to these peak states without trauma… and then downloading all that love and gratitude and joy is where it is at.
For a newbie Dawson recommends you use a guided meditation initially and you can do so using Eco Meditation which strings together a number of techniques in seven steps. Dawson is the founder of this work and here is the link at www.blissbrain.com where it is all free.
Dawson shares his own dark times with grace. He has learned to orient himself to that non-local mind first thing every morning. You want to get addicted to being at one with the Universe at the start of each day, he says. Dawson has had life’s fair share of problems and does not go without his own struggles. He shares one of the most traumatic stories when a fire destroyed his home and he and his wife were facing financial disaster. He shares how they bounced back and realised at the core what really matters.
In case you are wondering the EFT statement you say as you tap on the end points of the meridians that regulates them is, ‘Even though this ‘thing’ happened and this thing that happened really sucks, nevertheless I fully and completely accept myself, I love myself.’
Dawson Church, PhD, is an award-winning science writer with three best-selling books to his credit. The Genie in Your Genes (YourGeniusGene.com) was the first book to demonstrate that emotions drive gene expression. Mind to Matter, (MindToMatter.com) showed that the brain creates much of what we think of as “objective reality.” Bliss Brain (BlissBrain.com) demonstrates that peak mental states rapidly remodel the brain for happiness. Dawson has conducted dozens of clinical trials and founded the National Institute for Integrative Healthcare (NIIH.org) to promote ground-breaking new treatments. Its largest program, the Veterans Stress Project, has offered free treatment to over 20,000 veterans with PTSD over the past decade. Dawson shares how to apply these health and performance breakthroughs through EFT Universe (EFTUniverse.com), one of the largest alternative medicine sites on the web.
His definition of Self Love is the language you speak inside your head when nobody sees you or hears you and if you are able when there’s nobody there to hear you or see you and if you are able to love yourself then you can shift and grow.
Self-love is the foundation of wellness. Drop into your heart, be in your body and just immerse yourself in love. Those negative voices are there trying to help you, protect you. Tune into non-local mind where there is so much love. Self-love is at the core of everything.
Dawson’s favourite quote is from Lao Tzu.
‘If you want to waken all of humanity, then awaken all of yourself. If you want to eliminate the suffering in the world, then eliminate all that is dark and negative in yourself. Truly, the greatest gift you have to give is that of your own self-transformation.’
