Hi Everyone,

The movie "What the Bleep do we know" is a remarkable description of the findings of Quantum Physics. I have watched it several times and get new insights on each viewing. If you have seen this movie, you will appreciate Diane Lanthier's blending of it with the EFT experience.

Hugs, Gary

Gary, the following is an article I wrote for a local free mag about EFT and the movie "What the Bleep Do We Know."

 

The movie What the Bleep do We Know has had a profound impact on many lives with its messages of perceived reality. I love the movie, love the messages and how they're presented. There's a part in What the Bleep that discusses how we become addicted to our emotions, and it struck me that Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) actually helps break those addictions.

We perceive our reality based on what we know, what we've heard and learned and felt all our lives. All those things and events colour the way we see the world around us and how we choose to understand it. Something happens when you are a child, and for whatever reason, be it a glitch in your energy, a past life memory, or what you've already learned in your world, something in your make-up creates a reaction to that happening. And then a myriad of reactions occur to your reaction, and so on. You learn something about your world. As life goes on, you perceive that world within the context of the things you have learned - learned to be truths, to be rewarding, to be protective - at various level of consciousness.

Now let's say you develop a certain understanding of events that has a negative connotation to it. As new things happen in your environment, you perceive those events in that negative mindframe, interpret things to fit your view of the world and your environment. And each event or interaction that gets viewed in this negative context confirms what you already believe to be true. This growing negative view, these beliefs, I call scar tissue. It builds on itself, until you can no longer see certain issues without summoning the negative energy of previous occurrences. And you're so ingrained in the emotional patterning, that you aren't even aware of its presence and how it affects your vision.

The movie What the Bleep says that "the brain is made up of tiny brain cells called neurons. These neurons have tiny branches that reach out and connect to other neurons to form a neuronet. Each place where they connect is integrated into a thought or a memory. The brain builds up all its concepts by the law of associative memory. Ideas, thoughts and feelings are all constructed and interconnected within this neuronet. And all have a possible relationship with one another. The concept and the feeling of love, for instance, is stored in this vast neuronet. But we build up the concept of love from many other different ideas. Some people have love connected to disappointment. When they think about love, they experience the memory of pain, sorrow, anger and even rage. Rage may be linked to hurt which may be linked to a specific person which then is connected back to love.

We build up models of how we see the world outside of us. And the more information we have the more we refine our model one way or another. And what we ultimately do is tell ourselves a story about what the outside world is. Any information that we process, that we take in from the environment, is always coloured by the experiences that we've had and any emotional response that we're having about what we're bringing in."

According to What the Bleep, the hypothalamus assembles chemicals called peptides that match certain emotions. There's a chemical, or peptide, for every emotion. When we experience an emotion, the hypothalamus releases these peptides into the blood stream and then to the cells in the body. Along the outside of the cells are billions of receptors, which are receivers of incoming information. The peptides sit in these receptors, attaching themselves to the cell, sending it information and changing it in many ways. It sets off a whole cascade of biochemical events, some of which cause changes in the nucleus of the cell. So now your cells are receiving a chemical (an emotion) - a chemical that is addictive.

"We bring to ourselves situations that will fulfill the biochemical craving of the cells of our body by creating situations that meet our chemical needs. An addict will always need a little bit more in order to get a rush or a high of what they're looking for chemically. ... The relevant search command that's going on is related to finding a certain emotional state" that will create and release the chemical to our cells. "We can't even direct our eyes without having a certain emotional aspect to it. We create our reality by looking for and seeing things that meet these expectations - we have a mindview and set emotions and we look for things to meet those or we colour events within those guidelines to make them meet them.

... Nerve cells that fire together wire together. If you practice something over and over again those nerve cells have a long-term relationship. If you get angry on a daily basis and give reason for your victimization in your life on a daily basis you are re-wiring and re-integrating that neuronet on a daily basis and that neuronet now has a long-term relationship with all those other nerve cells called an identity. We also know that nerve cells that don't fire together no longer wire together. They lose their long-term relationships. Every time we interrupt a thought process that produces a chemical reaction in our body those nerve cells that are connected to each other start breaking a long-term relationship."

So how do you break the emotional addiction? How do you stop the nerve cells from firing together and break their relationship? How do you remove the scar tissue?

EFT can eliminate the pattern of negative emotion, working on memories and emotions individually by clearing away or releasing the energetic disruptions that cause the negative emotions. We chip away at the scar tissue until it's gone. You can even heal past life memories and do work at the cellular level.

And when the scar tissue is gone, a wonderful thing happens ... you can see situations more clearly, more openly, more divinely. Events and people and their behaviour are no longer personal, and you more easily and naturally understand that everyone has their place in the world, their path to lead, their experience to live. It's refreshing and enlightening. And it's loving. It's love. It's the universe, speaking to you directly, without the filter of past hurts and dismays. It is the emergence of your true divine self, and of the discovery of what's really important.

Diane
