Emotional ‘Baggage’ and Substance Abuse quelled
I had some large emotional baggage to deal with and was advised to see a life coach. After four intensive sessions everything felt in place and “dealt with”. Until a new situation arose, then I found myself not quite back where I’d started but not nearly as far along as I’d thought either.
I decided to give PKP kinesiology a try. I figured that the Life Coaching had helped the thinking/adult part of myself so perhaps I needed to do something for the feeling/child part. I didn’t really know what to expect but Margie [Margie Donde, principal of the Kinesiology Centre for International Studies, South Africa] came highly recommended so I thought I’d give it a try.
I’m not one for psychoanalytic “talking” therapy so I wasn’t too pleased when Margie engaged me in some “make me feel put on the spot” chit chat. Thankfully it only lasted long enough for her to get a handle on why I was there. After that I got to lie back and she did all the work.
When she finished I felt noticeably lighter, as if a weight had been lifted. Suddenly life didn’t seem as daunting, and my “baggage” felt infinitely more manageable. I made another appointment for the following week and arrived armed with a long list. The interesting thing about kinesiology is that each session seems to have a ripple effect. So we work on one item on my list and suddenly three other issues that didn’t even come up are dealt with simultaneously.
Life has been somewhat of a turmoil since a family tragedy late last year. I began using alcohol, cigarettes and drugs again to cope. Margie suggested an Addiction Balance. She figured out when/why/where my addictions had begun and by doing so was able to help me break the pattern. Again, I left there feeling noticeably lighter. The interesting thing is that not only did it take away my desire to smoke etc I also stopped biting my nails after that session. It’s been about three weeks and I can honestly say I feel as if I never did any of that stuff. It’s as if that was someone else. I’ve also been through some very trying and emotional times since then, which is usually when I want to drink or smoke. And nothing!
