The Healing Power of Emotion

 

Harnessing the Strength of Emotion with Susan Johnson

No one has been more instrumental in bringing “The Emotional Revolution” into the consulting room than master clinician Susan Johnson. In the video clip below, Sue describes her time as a grad student when the direct experience of emotion was seen as a disruptive force in the consulting room rather than a potential source of deep healing and connection.



Read Susan Johnson’s recent article on this topic FREE. It’s the cover feature article in the May/June issue of the Networker, “The Power of Emotion in Therapy.”


Susan Johnson, Ed.D., professor of clinical psychology, is one of the developers of Emotionally Focused Therapy. She’s the director of the Ottawa Couple and Family Institute and the International Center for Excellence in EFT. Her latest book is Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love.

    Your “Mental Imagery” is Not Imaginary – An Important Emotional Insight
    Imagination is one of the keystones of the human mind (May be Conscious, Sub Conscious or Unconscious). It is not only the medium of creativity but also a uniquely expressive language of the truth. To understand this powerful language, you must make a clear distinction between “Imagery” and “Imaginary”, This is what a Health Coach or a Life Coach Suggests.
    “Imaginary” is a creation lacking any truth, fact or reality. Although possibly pleasant (or not), it is basically a mistaken perception – a flight of fancy. “Imagery” on the other hand, is a potent symbolic shortcut to deep meaning and complex understandings. As is often said, “One picture is worth a thousand words”…and your mind is filled with pictures.
    The earliest forms of written communication were pictograms, symbols that reflected the fact and substance of experience. Seen in the mind’s eye, crude symbols were made to demonstrate what was known but unspoken. This rich “Imagery” populates the Subconscious Mind and is a living bridge between the Conscious and Unconscious Mind. It is the “dreamtime” of our waking life.
    Imagery wears but a very thin mask and is willing to tell honestly otherwise risky truths. With a wink and a twist, it avoids the shield of our deflecting lies and whispers to us what we already know but often deny. The wisdom of the Subconscious Mind is never far away and with just a few constructs to frame your Creative Imagery, you can be both shocked and relieved as to what Emotional insight awaits you.
    People in our life become characters in our imagination. In the language of Creative Imagery, these people – their names, faces and voices – take on the roles of representing facets of our own personality. In a sense, they are actors cast to play very specific roles in the story of our lives. When put on the “stage” constructed by your mental imagery, they come to life and speak the scripts written by you, the author of your own story.
    The Emotional Insight App by Possibility Wave guides you into a series of encounters with your own Subconscious Mind. Characters and their messages await you there. Each and every one of them is still actually you, yourself, but wearing the costume and mask of significant persons that populate your life. It is surprisingly easy to have them appear and speak intimately with you. The understandings may be shocking and revelatory or…a simple fact you have known all along but resisted accepting, until now.
    In the Emotional Insight app, the Creative Imagery process allows you to explore your Subconscious Mind for understandings and action strategies to help resolve a Current Issue or challenge. There is also Spontaneous Insight to explore your Conscious Mind and Secrets & Lies to explore your Unconscious Mind. Visit www.EmotionalInsightApp.com to get the App, and Be True to Yourself!!
