I think that one of my biggest lessons is, you have to feel to heal. And, you know, in our Western society, we get so infatuated with nervous system hacks, and here's a magic pill, or here's a magical intervention, and it'll fix this right away. And that's, that's just not how our neurobiology works.
And that's kind of the heart of trauma and PTSD and trauma responses is that your nervous system was overwhelmed. And it hasn't been able to really digest the experience. And so, the past remains the present.
So, in EMDR, we focus on we identify the specific memories that are correlated with the symptoms that you're really wanting to address in therapy. And there's a process that you go through with your therapist to kind of uncover some of those memories.
