How HBLU™ Saved Me from a Life of Suffering
If you’ve been following my posts at all, you’ve heard me talk extensively about my journey to Energy Psychology. You can read about it here. I suffered with debilitating depression and anxiety for many years. Most of the time, all I was able to do was to make sure that I fed myself and went to work. I didn’t have any energy left over for anything else. I would drag myself out of bed drag while trying to beat down my dread about facing the day, drag myself through my work, then drag myself home to lay on the couch where I would ruminate about how much I hated my life. This wasn’t living. It was subsistence.
I tried all kinds of treatments. I tried antidepressants. I tried several kinds of talk therapy. I tried meditation. I tried coaching. I tried joining a support group. I read lots of self-help books.
Unfortunately, none of these really helped.
About 18 years ago, after all this searching for an effective treatment for my depression, I was finally introduced to Energy Psychology. A colleague showed me where to tap on my body over Traditional Chinese Medicine meridian acupoints while I made statements about my feelings. At first, I thought it was totally stupid and pointless, but it actually worked! I felt better within a few minutes! Little did I know that Traditional Chinese Medicine has been using acupoints for treatment for thousands of years. From that day on I was like a dog with a bone trying to understand how Energy Psychology works!
In short, Energy Psychology is the branch of psychology that “comprises a family of methods designed to strategically and methodically intervene with human energy fields in elevating physical, mental, emotional and spiritual wellbeing. Applications incorporate natural energetic components into the treatment process that include, but are not limited to, meridians, chakras, biofields, and bio-electrical and electromagnetic activity of the body, the nervous system and the heart.” Energy Psychology practitioners generally discuss the presenting issue or challenge with their client, and then use a gentle bio-field intervention (such as tapping on a meridian or holding a chakra point on the body) to elicit a change in state.
Not too long after my introduction to meridian acupoint tapping, I was asked to create and teach a survey course on Energy Psychology for graduate students at the university where I was teaching at the time. During the preparation for that course, I was introduced to Healing from the Body Level Up, or HBLU™.
HBLU™ was created by a scientist, Dr. Judith Swack. As such, it’s designed to methodically and simultaneously treat all levels of the human being, including the physical, mental, emotional and psychospiritual. In her words, “HBLU™ is a holistic psychotherapy system that reproducibly clears mental, emotional, physical and spiritual blocks to success. (It) integrates the best of biomedical science, psychology, spirituality, applied kinesiology, hypnosis, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and other Energy Psychology techniques with (my) original research on the structure of complex damage patterns. Thus, HBLU™ is a unique way to get unstuck and eliminate struggle by clearing unconscious patterns that cause self-sabotage. In addition to healing, HBLU™ is a valuable modality for facilitating personal growth, spiritual evolution, and self actualization. “
Prior to creating the Energy Psychology survey course, I had been experimenting with many energy psychology techniques and had had good success with all of them. HBLU™, however, stood head and shoulders above the rest. Not only was my depression and anxiety rapidly improving, my food allergies and other ailments that nothing else could touch were also much improved with HBLU™.
I’ve been involved in the HBLU™ community for about 10 years now. In that time, I’ve gone from struggling with my career, my relationships, and mood to having a thriving career, getting happily married, and feeling good most of the time. If I have depression or anxiety now, there’s a good reason.
I know what it is to suffer, and I know what it is to search high and low to find meaningful solutions to life’s problems. I finally feel as If I’m living my best life, and I’m excited to share these easy-to-use tools with you.
I’ve treated hundreds of clients in my private practice with these techniques, and I’ve seen their lives rapidly and significantly improve. Dr. Swack and the HBLU™ greater community have treated thousands of people with similar results, thus the method has gained a reputation as being highly effective.
If you (or your clients) are suffering, consider giving HBLU™ a try.
I will be offering HBLU™ Module One: Clearing Trauma and PTSD training March 13, 20, 27 10:00 AM-7:00 PM Pacific Time on Zoom.
