EMOTIONAL RESPONS-IBILITY

In this article we would like to clear up some common misunderstandings when it comes emotions, how they arise and what changes them. Unfortunately our culture has taught us that emotions arise as a result of our unruly thinking processes. The latter are what Mickel Therapy calls secondary emotions specifically when related to a person's experience of illness...

THE SCIENCE OF BODY INTELLIGENCE

Those of you familiar with Mickel Therapy will recognise our use of the metaphor of 'Head intelligence' and 'Body Intelligence' and the hypothesis that conflicts between the two is what leads to 'dis-ease'. But is there any science to back this unlikely statement? Well, yes there is...

THE ART OF COMMUNICATION

Many of our clients find constructive communication of their feelings a challenge. This of course stands to reason as it usually involves voicing negative feelings back to someone who has made us unhappy in some way and that someone will rarely be appreciative of such honesty...

MASTERING MICKEL THERAPY

Mickel Therapy is a very unique form of healthcare.  It has a theory about the nature of illness, as well as how illness can be both corrected and prevented.  The practical application involves implementing tools and techniques that directly fall from the theory that primary emotionshave a direct effect on our physical cells...

ANGER MANAGEMENT

Anger is the family of e-motion that ranges from small annoyance to being furious. We have all experienced situations in life that have generated an anger response within our body. Unfortunately there are lots of things that we misunderstand about this e-motion and how our body likes it to be handled. This leads it to be one of the most common triggers and maintainer of symptoms of illness...

GETTING TO THE ROOT OF SYMPTOMS

We live in a culture that is transfixed with symptoms. All our attention is looking at symptoms and the ramifications of symptoms.  Many healthcare modalities are concerned with eradicating symptoms by working on or against the symptoms. However this just translates into working with effects and not cause...

E Newsletter - March 2009

THE SCIENCE OF MICKEL THERAPY

The Mickel Therapy process is based on the assumption that the people developing the symptoms have a dysfunctional hypothalamus gland and heightened sensitivity to emotional signals arising in their mid-brain. This sensitivity leads to a state akin to that described by Dr Hans Selye in the 1930's when he described General Adaptation Syndrome which to all intents and purposes could have been an early description of what has now become known as CFS/M.E...

THE POWER OF BODY BOREDOM

One of the e-motions that we have discovered is the unlikely candidate of body boredom. It has become very clear that our body does indeed have changeable moods in terms of what fulfils it and what doesn't. The way it communicates this to us is through the primary e-motions of joy/happiness or its shadow form - boredom. In the development of Mickel Therapy this created much confusion as a client would report doing something that they really 'enjoy' but suddenly experience an increase in their symptoms...

E Newsletter - Oct 2008

OUR BODY MOODS

Quite simply our bodies do indeed have moods and like any mood it can change at the blink of an eye. This is often confusing to the client who can get a sudden increase in their symptoms while doing something 'fun'. This is often confused with over exertion. However we must trust in the fact that bodies never send symptoms to get us to rest - it uses healthy tiredness for that. When a client proves this to themselves then a return to health is just a short step away...

MOVING FORWARD INTO THE FUTURE

 

 

 

 

Edition 14 - May 2008

MOVING INTO THE RIGHT FUTURE

We suggest that there is a part of you that knows in which direction to be going.  Of course this is in conflict with the idea that we need to think very hard to work things out looking at pros and cons and the like.  In order to do this then let go of the shackles of analysis and thinking and let yourself be guided by e-motions only.

WHAT IS ANXIETY?

In Mickel Therapy we take a very different approach to anxiety.  Because of the physical symptoms that are often experienced with anxiety states we believe that anxiety should be classed as a physical condition rather than psychological in the traditional sense. So we suggest that anxiety is a symptomatic state or ‘condition’. This means that it is NOT an emotion – and not simply a heightened fear state...

Edition 11 - Sept 2007

THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THINKING AND FEELING

The Mickel Therapy model of e-motion takes a fresh look at how e-motion is generated and maintained, and effectively explains how ‘dis-ease’ states are created. Put simply primary e-motion comes before thinking.  Taking appropriate action on that e-motion avoids the need for any attention to thoughts/cognitions or perceptions...

Edition 10 - August 2007


THE GIFT OF UNPLEASANT MEMORIES

Why would a memory just jump into our heads, bringing all the associated e-motions that we feel in our bodies?  And, if it is an unpleasant memory, why would our body-mind want us to relive it in this way? Let’s revisit one of the basic tenants of Mickel Therapy; symptoms are useful and purposeful and are trying to convey some information to us when they appear.  What if we were to view unpleasant involuntary memories as just another ‘symptom’?...

Edition 9 - June 2007


LIFE IS A SERIES OF MOMENTS

Isn’t it interesting that when you are unwell, doctors and nurses will usually tell you to “take things one day at a time”.  Surely life is a series of moments? We know that the way our bodies work that emotions are just a flow of energy – a transfer from outside to in.  So we also know that our bodies are responding to life on a moment to moment basis.  Despite the temptation to generalise over periods of time, our bodies can be generating one emotion one minute and then another the next...

Edition 8 - March 2007

DON'T THINK AWAY YOUR FEELINGS

Like all energy, our emotions need to flow.  There is a cycle that needs completion.  The first stage is allowing ourselves to experience our emotions, without judging them or ourselves for having them.  By experiencing them rather than resisting they are already beginning to flow and the discomfort that may be experienced with negative emotions will be transient.  However, if we persist in resisting then not only will the discomfort increase but symptoms of some kind will ensue...

Edition 7 - February 2007


THE POWER AND PITFALLS OF EXPECTATIONS

Clearly, there are great benefits from being able to plan and set goals.  However, there can also be a downside and this occurs when we hold onto expectations so tightly that they run counter to the other emotional and intuitive signals that our bodies may be sending.  This holding on can occur both before an event as well as after an event...

Edition 6 - January 2007


WHAT MAKES MICKEL THERAPY WORK?

The reason why the Mickel Therapy process works when clients apply it to their Energy Disorders is because we look to identify the causes of energetic imbalances or symptoms and address these causes.  Sounds simple, doesn’t it.  The problem can be that in a culture so caught up in seeking to quickly eradicate effects, shifting focus to causes sometimes requires something of an uncomfortable stretch away from the familiar...

Edition 5 - December 2006


DEVELOPING INTUITION

The problem we face is that to many people intuition sounds a little weird and wacky, something that lies within the domain of a select few willing to tread a certain path – old ladies reading tea leaves, and the like.  The truth is intuition is available to all of us, and often goes hand in hand with the emotions that our bodies produce...

Edition 4 - December 2006

LETTING GO - HOW?

We can see that it is not emotions that need to be ‘let go’ but the destructive or unhelpful behaviours that are often implemented when emotions arise.  When we allow ourselves to feel and experience our emotions more readily within our lives we can begin to identify the most appropriate behaviours that will allow the energy of emotion to flow and ultimately us to feel happier and healthy...

IMAGINE YOUR IDEAL FUTURE

Core waves are effectively vibrations created by us today that we walk into tomorrow.  Thoughts, feelings, intentions and those things that we focus on form a part of this core wave. Your question may now be, "OK, so how can I use this to create more of what I want in my life; better health, more happiness and abundance in general...

Edition 2 - November 2006

WHAT IS EMOTION

Many people argue about emotion, it's purpose, it's value, where it comes from and why we have it.  In a culture where so much confusion surrounding emotion exists, it is of little surprise that we're taught to sweep it under the carpet, treat it as a vague, wishy-washy, psychological phenomenon...
