Holding On To Magic

Are you still angry about the times your Dad promised to show up at your game and didn't? How about the times that your Mom insisted that you stay home and babysit when you wanted to be with your friends?

Often you hold onto resentments like this because you felt helpless and decided that someday, some way, that mean parent would realize how badly you had been treated and apologize.

Holding onto those resentments is a way of freezing energy. Noticing when you resent something in the past that nothing can possibly change can be a signal to you of a place where you can reclaim that frozen energy.

It helps if you get clear about the fantasy or belief that goes along with the original resentment. Is it that the culprit will be sorry and change? Is it that you will get back at them in some way?

Once you understand that secret hope, then you can use the Logosynthesis process to reclaim your frozen energy.

Protection Becomes the Problem

Not processing difficult situations to release frozen energy can cause later problems. 

Almost every addiction, whether it is to alcohol, drugs, food or even work started as a way to help you feel better when you had an uncomfortable experience.

The experience could have been the stress of living in a home where you witnessed emotional or physical violence, and drinking alcohol or using drugs helped you relax. Or you could have learned to distract yourself from the stress with work.

Or perhaps when you were small, each time you experienced difficulty you were consoled with cookies and you learned that food was the way to feel better.

The problem in each case is that it takes more and more of the pain-relieving substance to produce the same amount of relief and you then need the substance just to feel normal.

Healing from an addicition is a complicated process. Often releasing your energy from the original problem reduces the pressure to use the substance to try to feel better.

Reacting is Natural

If letting go is such a challenge, why bother to do it at all?

Many people don't. If you are among the 54% of people in the US who have not experienced "adverse childhood experiences" and don't mind putting up with occasional upsets, that is certainly a valid choice.

If you are reading this, though, you probably find that current reactions to past difficulties are causing problems in your life.

Research shows that the more of those adverse experiences you have experienced, such as:

  • parents or guardians who divorced, separated, died, or were jailed,
  • witnessing any violent behavior,
  • living with anyone with mental health or addictions,

the more likely you are to have mental and physical problems.

Fortunately it is now much easier to recover your energy from your reactions to those events. This book will show you how.
