Mellody not only points to the usual suspects of sex abuse, physical abuse and emotional abuse in childhood as the origins of adult mental health problems, but she also talks about something often overlooked. Spiritual Abuse.

So what is Spiritual Abuse? (HINT-It’s not what you think) And was it part of your home life growing up?

SELF-INSIGHT: TAKE DEEPAK CHOPRA'S EMOTIONAL CONTROL QUIZ

Are you resisting the things in your life that you simply can’t change? And is this resistance a sign of codependency?

The emotions that we stuff deep inside are by definition the emotions that we aren’t allowing ourselves to feel. And trying to control what we feel is rooted deeply in fear and feeling threatened.

World renowned author, spiritual guide, and mental health advocate Deepak Chopra has written the following quiz to help you get a sense of how much you are trying to control your emotional state in what may be an unhealthy way. It only takes about five minutes to do this. 

​What does this have to do with The Virtual EMDR Eye Movement Therapy Program? Nothing directly, but this quiz can give important clues about how we are feeling about ourselves, the overall state of our mental health, and how well we are dealing with our relationships with other people. In fact, a high score may indicate that we are in need of some EMDR sessions, one-to-one talk therapy, or even the support of a treatment group.

WHAT IT FELT LIKE USING AT-HOME EMDR EYE MOVEMENT THERAPY TO GET SOBER

I never thought I could be happy, I had so many problems for so long that I thought I’d never crawl out of this hole in the ground. Then I took a chance and did the work. Here’s what happened.

The first time I encountered EMDR Therapy, it was in person with a therapist guiding me one-on-one. In fact, I think this was before any sort of online EMDR therapy even really existed.

I was going to 12 step meetings at the time (AA) and even though I was not getting sober, I had met some pretty incredible people many of whom are still my friends now. During AA meetings I started to hear people share about their childhood and the word “trauma” came up when people talked about some of the violence and abuse they had been through. After our meetings, we would sometimes go out for a slice of pizza which was the first time I ever remember someone mentioning EMDR Therapy and talking about what it was.
