How Emotional Conflicts Block the Flow of Energy (Part I)

Deeply hidden emotional conflicts are the underlying cause of many symptoms and diseases. Although we do not know much about how this works, this belief is generally accepted when talking about psychosomatic illnesses. But where do these conflicts hide? Why do these conflicts disturb our health and well being? Depending on the personal belief-system and individual training, there are various theories of what is really going on behind this curtain of the soul. With the method of "Psychosomatic Energetics" we include the subtle energy-field into our theory, and are thus capable--for the first time ever--to get a deeper insight into what is going on in the depths of the spirit. With this method we also get a better understanding of how the soul attaches itself to the physical body, what facts lead to illness and disturbed autonomic functions. The subtle energy levels (the "Aura") and the energy funnels, the chakras, play the most important roles in this system.

Key Words:

  • Emotional conflicts
  • psychosomatic disturbances
  • energy medicine
  • The Deeply-Rooted Emotional Causes of Diseases

When patients come to see us, they expect a profound, long lasting diagnosis and therapy that is efficient and gentle at the same time. On the other hand, it is the patient himself who is in many cases involved in the outcome of an illness, mostly on an unconscious level. For a long time it was professional opinion that the patients did not want to know about the real causes for their illnesses, due to their own resistance, projection and their blaming of others for their illness. Therapists thought that they were responsible for the patient's health, whereas the patient himself was not willing to face real solutions. From my experience this is very far from truth, and only applies to a small minority of patients who behave in an auto-destructive and neurotic manner.

The great majority of patients feel instinctively that they need our professional help in order to address the underlying causes of illness that they cannot reach alone. They really want to heal. But because the emotional conflicts that are relevant for deep-psychology are mostly non-verbal, the patient himself can never get to the point without help from the outside. He is unable to speak about the difficulties, and he cannot solve them alone. Don't mix up this inability with resistance or unyielding behavior, because you would then blame a person for something that is beyond his abilities. As a matter of fact, most patients desperately try to find out two things--and they use a lot of power and will to get there:

  1. What were the subconscious impulses that made me ill?
  2. How can I heal fast and stay healthy in order to feel good in my body, to be in harmony and be happy?

Well, usually we as therapists are no miracle-healers or clairvoyants. So we can't tell from the patient what impulses have made him turn ill nor can we cure this right away. Even though patients put a great amount of trust in us, there is usually a large gap between the expectations and the real results. With the method of Psychosomatic Energetics we get a tool to reduce the gap between wish and reality. With Psychosomatic Energetics we can fulfil our patients' wishes in a fast and highly effective way--we can bring their non-verbal conflicts to the surface, and with the homeopathic remedies that come with the method we can also provide our patients with the best impulses to really heal.

The Levels of the Subconscious and the Conflict

The levels of the subconscious, the conflict shown as a pyramid and different energetic therapies with their effects.

We all know that below the surface of the superficial symptoms there are several levels of causes for diseases. Once we address these levels, we end up with greater success in our therapies. It is general knowledge that it is the emotional conflicts that should be touched in order to make therapies most effective. Usually it takes many hours of hypnosis and relaxation to get somewhere near these deepest conflicts. We lack the time and energy to always do that amount of analytic work. Many methods get stuck in more superficial levels of the subconscious, and many patients have been socially trained not to deal too much with their subconscious. This is not resistance, but a behaviour pattern coming from their cultural background. So we have to face the most difficult situation that we feel is the emotional conflict we need to address, but this is usually hard to reach.

I want to give you now a short introduction on how I came to discover the Psychosomatic Energetics. For many years I had been working with classical homeopathy and saw incredible results with it. Through the years, I experienced, like many other colleagues, that the results from homeopathy began to get smaller and less frequent. With the Bach flower remedies, as invented by British colleague Dr. Edward Bach, the positive results kept coming back. So I used them with great pleasure, only to learn that my patients kept coming back with the same complaints after some time. With nosodes and miasmas I had the same disappointments--at first the patients improved, even on deeper levels, but still the effects were not deep enough and didnot last long enough to really satisfy either of us.

One could argue that the reason for my lack of success might be my poor skills as a homeopath and user of Bach flower remedies. But since many colleagues over the years told me of similar experiences, I rather believe that this is a common truth. From my opinion it is not only due to our toxic environment and sensual overstrain, but also because many people have access to the energy of their spirits. Therefore, the greater emotional conflicts rise to the surface of our modern world and show us the failure of conventional treatments very clearly. Not only the holistic treatments I mentioned fail, but also a lot of "University Medicine" and psychotherapy.

After I had found out about Psychosomatic Energetics I could measure--for the first time--the subtle energy levels as well as the underlying emotional conflicts. Things that were hidden before in the depths of the subconscious, resembling some kind of a black box, where no one really knew what was going on, could suddenly be made visible. I could actually measure the quantity of energy in both my patient and his conflict. Now I realised why certain treatments hadn't worked properly--they had only cut out a piece of the conflict. If we consider the conflict an iceberg, these therapies had only touched a small part of it, but had not melted it thoroughly. But still the conflict had become smaller and was below the surface, and the patient's symptoms disappeared. After some time the conflict recovered and the symptoms came back. I was sure that only a treatment that would touch all levels of a conflict would finally work properly and would allow the patient to really heal.

Before I introduce such a treatment, I would like to describe the nature of conflicts. The conflict is an energetic "being" with a very broad range on many levels--some kind of little homunculus, that sits in our energy-field (aura) and participates in our energy. We can picture the conflict as an iceberg where the visible symptoms form the top. The major parts of the conflict, though, are hidden below the surface, reaching down in several steps to the very bottom of our subconscious mind. The deepest-rooted conflicts are located on a non-verbal level that usually can't be reached by means of thinking. This is the main reason why most of the regular treatments remain insufficient......
