A | B | C | D | E| F | G | H | I | J | K | L | M | N | O | P | R | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z




abreaction - A stress response when a stressed system has become so unstable, it descends into total chaos. In people this includes anger outbursts, breaking down sobbing, screaming incoherently, and fainting.      

absent event - A event that is missing from the events matrix which directly causes behaviour designed to acquire the absent or missing event

absolute reality - What is happening outside of and including any one human being who is observing this.      

actual experienced reality - What one individual human being experiences about absolute reality.

admiration - One of the steps in the attention-to-love model of energy/information flow.

Ancient Monuments Model - Model used in memory enrichment to mark out new parts of the enriched memory as having been added at a later date.

artefact - Any object, landscape, person or occurrence tied to an event by physical or temporal proximity. Artefacts serve as direct portals to the event

aspects - Different aspects of a situation, person or object depending on the attitude of consciousness which is observing it. 

attention - The act of directing the consciousness to create a connection with something through which information and energy may flow

attitude, attitude of consciousness - The relational attitude of consciousness to something (i.e. a memory)





basic events pattern - The events story which contains the event, and the metacomments on the event

behaviour  - What a person can be seen to be doing.             

belief formation  - In Events Psychology, belief formation happens by metacomments on the events

body sensations - Direct feedback on the state of the energy system, see also emotions





change event - A one time lightning strike which brings about change, learning, healing and evolution. 

client avidity - The opposite of client resistance.


Client-Practitioner Dance - A way of interaction between the client and the practitioner which allows both to bring their best healing efforts to bear on the problem in hand and which puts the client in charge of directing the healing session towards WHAT THEY WANT absolutely, and nowhere else. The Client-Practitioner Dance model from EMO has proven so effective, it has also been adopted for Events Psychology to give practitioners of energy psychology the advantage of creating safe, meaningful and helpful relationships that have the power to heal.                     


contaminant level - The amount of stress present which precludes clear recall, movements of consciousness and access to other faculties the client needs to be able to experience change events

Creative Order  - The structural principles behind the Universe and everything it holds.

Creative Template - A model for people to work towards not some artificial ideal, try to model themselves on another person who isn't they, or try to turn the clock back but to find their own "best possible working order" (Even Flow) at this time and tune systems towards that. More information.



dance - A form of interaction whereby two or more individuals enter into a mutual movement which if it works as it should, produces a combined movement that is more than the sum of the parts.           

desired outcome  - What a client preferably would like to achieve through a change event

dream core - The essence of a dream.

drug induced experiences - Events Psychology does not discriminate against memories of events that came into being as the result of a drug induced experience and treats all events simply as events.



echo see events echo    

Emotions - Feedback from the energy system transmitted to the physical body. More about Emotions              

EMO - Energy healing and teaching system developed by Silvia Hartmann in 2002.

energetic injuries   - Real injuries in the energy system which is also real, which really hurt and cause "emotional pain" (as opposed to insisting that someone only feels all that pain "in their head"!) and which can really be treated so that a person can start to recover and really start to feel better.

energetic reality see erea

Energized End State - The aim and outcome of any EMO and Events Psychology session - to feel energized, fully alive, and for the opposite of the presenting problem to have come into being.       

Energy Psychology - Psychology treatment methods that takes the human energy body into consideration.  

Energy System - The human energy body plus whatever else there is energetically that makes up the energy aspects of the human totality

Erea or EREA - Short for "Existing Energetic Reality". More about Ereas.        

enlightenment experience - All events if correctly processed turn out to be enlightenment experiences, high energy experiences that evolve a person to the next level of their personal development

Even Flow - A core concept of EMO that describes the best possible energy flow in any existing energy system.  

event - An instantaneous occurrence in the energy system which changes a person's totality in a heartbeat

event absolute - The instant of the event itself which is free of thoughts but a body sensation instead.

event invitation - A time/space environment that would allow an event to occur if the owner of the systems was willing.

event line - Events that come into being because of previous events form an events line.

events echo - An event being represented repeatedly for resolution; often seems like a repeat run of the original genesis event.

events impoverished - Not enough events to create a stable events matrix. This causes often extreme manifestations of thought, emotion and behaviour.

events matrix  - All events mapped together to create "the shape and content of a person's life".

events starved - An unstable events matrix because there are not enough events to hold it together.


events story - The story which contains an event inside like a fruit may contain a seed within. In Events Psychology treatments it is very important to distinguish the event absolute from the story which surrounds it, and which will also include metacomments on the event, "the moral of the story".

events system - An interlinked system that contains more than one event, for example a "guiding star plus trauma" grand conjunction.

future events - The many events we haven't had yet and which have the power to completely transform our lives in every way. Don't give up hope, not ever!

Guiding Star - An event that is perceived as highly positive or valuable, and which is often attempted to be recreated, which is both futile as well as extremely damaging.

If a person is currently hallucinating, they clearly need stress treatments before anything else may be done by or with them
