Just remembered an experience – perhaps 55 years ago. While a young child, I had what people now say are out-of-body experiences. I would be above me while I was asleep in my bed. Looking down and around, no noise, no panic. I was aware I existed twice.
This is now a reflective comment: during the EMDR sessions I felt involved with the event in a way that my thoughts had barred me from.
In a strange and reflective way this is how I responded when under the influence of the bilateral simulation of EMDR. The emotional feelings were mine but their impact was not present.
Prior to counselling I would cry when recalling either of the two major events I had been through. I don’t now. I would describe my feelings and emotions as being mournful and respectful. However I must not forget!
I am not saying there is a meta-physical connection but a coincidence is present.
