Eden Method header  for e-letter

In The Promise of Energy Psychology we tell the story of Pat Ahearne. After winning the Australian Baseball League’s “Pitcher of the Year” award, Pat reflected that with Energy Psychology, he “found the mental edge that raises an athlete from average to elite . . . I am so amazed by its effectiveness that I’ve made it as important a part of my baseball routine as throwing or running or lifting weights.”

Both Energy Medicine and Energy Psychology have been effectively used to enhance sports performance, and that’s our theme for this month’s e-letter. We’d like to highlight that an “energetic approach” can be applied to improve -- not just sports performance -- but any skilled activity.

Acupoint tapping has been successfully used to boost confidence, overcome emotional blocks, and reverse slumps for athletes and non athletes. When it comes to improving sports performance, even highly nuanced skills can be cultivated. For instance, while visualizing perfect basketball free throws has been shown to increase free-throw percentages, tapping on acupuncture points while imagining the shots appears to give a significant boost to the effectiveness of the visualizations.

If you’d like to know more about these energy-based techniques, there are many books and articles focused on applying energy medicine across different types of sport such as football, baseball, tennis, soccer, golf, gymnastics, archery, or bowling.

Donna has used Energy Medicine with many amateurs and a few semi-professional athletes. Swimmers were able to hold their breath longer after massaging the sternum bone that affects the lung meridian. An entire volleyball team went on a winning streak after Donna worked with the team, showing them how to get their energies crossing over optimally, using various energy techniques.

Our Oregon home is at the foot of a popular ski slope, and Donna was accustomed to weekend calls about injured knees and various other woes. She taught athletes potent self-help techniques for reducing pain that they could use before, during, or after a game or performance. She once noticed that her primary technique for improving memory also created an energetic buffer zone that gave extra protection around the head. She has taught this to many athletes whose sport included risk for brain injuries.

In this special sports issue, you will hear 3 Eden Energy Medicine practitioners tell about their use of Energy Medicine in high-level athletic competitions. We invite you to apply these same techniques in any area you wish to improve your physical capacities and performance.

The Joy of Sox: Weird Science and the Power of Intention

What happens when a Harvard psychiatrist mixes his interest in holistic energy medicine with his love for the Boston Red Sox? You get The Joy of Sox, a humorous blend of science and spirituality that explains the latest breakthroughs into the nature of the human mind by showing how these discoveries apply to the All-American sport of baseball!

Dr. Rick Leskowitz describes his research with Random Number Generators and heart coherence monitors that proves that baseball fans in the stands project an energy that influences the game. It's not just the cheering! He also shows how you can harness these invisible forces to become a more effective fan for your favorite team, as well as how to use the power of intention to create more happiness in your own life.

If you’ve ever wanted to know exactly how energy-based phenomena work, then The Joy of Sox -- which is all about the extraordinary connection between the Boston Red Sox, true love from true fans, and the “home field advantage'' -- could just be exactly what you’re looking for!

Energy Psychology Series #3 of 10

How Tapping Can Help to Heal the Psychological Roots of Illness: Saving Pauline

Over 2,000 years ago, Aristotle said, “Body and soul respond to one another in sympathy.” His poetic observation probably arose from the fact that physicians of ancient Greece believed the life of the spirit is intertwined with the state of the body and that emotional balance is a crucial influencer in health.

Although Western medicine has long grappled with connecting the mind and emotions in treating illness, significant, positive breakthroughs have been made in recent years. This is particularly true when it comes to a mind-body intervention that appears to have special strengths in its ability to rapidly resolve psychological factors in illness.

Energy psychology is proving to be a highly effective approach to overcoming difficult emotions and unhelpful beliefs without a long course of psychotherapy.

News Alert! Please Help Us Support Certified EEM Practitioners in Massachusetts

A pair of bills in Massachusetts propose new regulations that would immediately make all unlicensed professionals in health, well-being, and related fields illegal. This of course is a potential threat to many of our Certified EEM practitioners. A strong outpouring of negative comments would not only support our colleagues in Massachusetts, it would also discourage politicians in other states from introducing similar legislation that could seriously affect the livelihood of countless, professional and highly dedicated EEM practitioners.

Anyone can participate (even non-residents) so PLEASE take a few moments to sign the petition opposing this bill! You can click here to sign the petition >>
