Abstract

The psychological healing process often starts with surface-level problems, peeling away emotional layers until the core issue surfaces. When integrating energy psychology with dreamwork, however, it is possible to begin at a deeper level. Dreams focus on the more salient unprocessed emotional issues of the day, thus dreamwork can quickly bring to consciousness an issue that a person is dealing with on a subconscious level.

On the other hand, dreamwork alone – in the absence of other therapies – is not necessarily effective in reducing the emotional stress that may surface or moving through the emotional impasses. Energy Psychology (EP) in turn complements dreamwork by providing a method for reducing emotional stress, and reducing the emotional barriers to healing, once an issue is identified.

Combining the two disciplines integrates the primary benefits of both into one technique, which is useful for self-help or in a therapeutic setting. The Dream To Freedom technique combines a deep and rapid Gestalt-based approach for surfacing the emotional issues that the subconscious is working on, with the rapid and highly effective Emotional Freedom Techniques for quickly reducing emotional stress surrounding those core issues.

The protocol also provides a technique for closure which uses the dream?s natural tendency for projection to provide insight.
