**News: The EMO Primer โ€“ Now In Russian!

It seems that almost every month I am bringing you news of another language that the EMO Primer has been translated into, and May is no exception!

A huge thank you to Diana Falby who has tranlsated the Primer into Russian. An estimated 145 Million people worldwide speak Russian so this translation will help people learn EMO who otherwise would not have the opportunity.

**Article: Dr Silvia Hartmann On EMO Language

EMO isn't difficult, but in order to make it work the way it's supposed to work, we do have to pay attention to the simple words and concepts we use. We have to make sure we get those words right, and understand the basic principles behind the EMO process. Here are a couple of examples that have come across my desk recently and which I would like to share with you.

***** Do make sure that the people you are treating or teaching understand this correctly.

As the examples show, even a slight mistake in the words we use can really put a blockage in the smooth flow of an EMO session.

The Metaphor Police Is Coming!

As you know, I am a metaphor specialist and I chose to NOT have ANY metaphors other than that of water for EMO. I did that for very good reasons, because in the past, energy healing has been literally be-devilled (had a devil inserted into it!) by the use of metaphor. EMO works so well because we are staying with the sensations of the body.

That way, we stay connected to reality.

The moment you lose this connection with the feelings in the body and you start to talk "about them" in metaphorical terms, you go off into cloud cuckoo's land and whatever you do there no longer impacts the body directly any longer. That's a direct cause and effect.

I saw an EMO practitioner the other day ask a client, "What colour is the feeling in your chest?" That's EXACTLY the kind of thing we DO NOT want to be saying to a client, because that takes them AWAY from the feeling in the chest we want to be working on, and into another dimension altogether. If we want more information about the feeling in the chest, we ask the client, "How does that feel?" Now be clear to not ask, "How does that feel LIKE?" because "like" takes us into metaphor again, and again, takes us AWAY from the place we want to be working at in EMO.

You are looking for direct descriptions of how the body sensation feels, in direct kinaesthetic language, for example, "It feels tight," or "It feels hot and churning."

Often clients will go on to offer a metaphor like, "It feels hot and churning like a pot of boiling soup." If you look at that sentence you can really see and feel the place where the client is "losing the plot" - losing the real body sensation and going into their heads and starting to hallucinate, to all intents and purposes, about pots of boiling soup.

If we were doing Project Sanctuary instead of EMO, we could play with that metaphor now, establish the habitat, explore the domain, and start to develop that. That's a treatment style in its own right, but it is NOT EMOTRANCE! If that "drift off into metaphor" movement happens to your client, bring them back INTO THE BODY, which is WHERE THEY HAVE TO BE TO MOVE THE ENERGY LATER.

Ignore the "boiling soup" comment and say, "So it feels churning and hot right there in your chest? Very good. Let's work with that now ..."

If you stay closely connected with that level, DIRECTLY connected to the body sensations, EMO will work like a charm, so please pay attention and don't wander off into metaphor land - that's a different form of therapy altogether. A Simple Languaging Mistake With Dire Consequences

Here is the second example of where language is extremely important in making EMO work.

A practitioner reported that a client had gotten quite upset when told to soften and flow and that "it wasn't working for them". When I went through the session notes, I noticed the place where it had all gone wrong - a simple mistake in languaging.

Instead of saying, "Where does this energy need to go?" the practitioner had asked, "Where do YOU WANT THIS ENERGY TO GO?"

If you look at those two sentences, they sound nearly the same, but structurally, what is happening is totally different.

If we ask, "Where does the ENERGY need/want to go?" we are looking for THE NATURAL PATHWAYS of the energy, to try and FIND SOMETHING THAT IS REALLY THERE. We can discover this pathway, and then we can use it to flow the energy through it. The wrong form, "Where do YOU want this energy to go?" leaves the client in mental no-man's land.

"I don't know! What do I know where I want this energy to go? I don't know what's for the best, or what to do with that energy!"

And that was exactly the response of the real client - they got upset and didn't know how to decide where THEY wanted that energy to go. The client got upset, the practitioner didn't know what to do, and the session really went tits up - because of a simple languaging mistake.

So in conclusion, please do be careful with what you say to your clients, and if you are a trainer, really do be careful to make sure the practitioners get the basics right. EMO is really simple, but there are places where we can go off the rails with it and land up in the same confusion that has dogged proper energy healing since the dawn of time.

By using the right phrases that are designed to keep the client with the REALITY of their bodies, and keeping the entire session focused on the REALITY of what's happening in their energy systems, we get to make brilliant changes like the world has never seen before. In the simplicity and elegance of the EMO design, there is a PRECISION of how we work, and if you pay close attention to that, you will always get predictable, REALITY based results for your clients.

* Keep your language really simple, and very clear.

* When something goes wrong in a session, back up to the basics - Where do you feel it in your body? Show me with your hands! (or point in the right direction for thoughtfields) - This is only an energy. Where does that energy need to go? - Let's encourage the energy to move in that direction, soften and flow.

* If in doubt, check your trainings manual!
