Processing anger with Eileen

ITS LIZ. TODAY DURING OUR SESSION SOME PARTS WERE FEELING VERY ANGRY. BUT WE DIDNT HAVE ANY WORDS. SO WE WERE DOING EMDR TO HELP US PROCESS SOME OF THE ENERGY SURROUNDING THE ANGER. WE DID AN EXERCISE WITH EILEEN WHERE SHE TOLD US TO TRACK OUR ANGER, TRACK ALL OF THE SENSATIONS IN OUR BODY, AND FOLLOW THEM. SO USING THE PULSERS AT FIRST, AND THEN WHEN THEY DIDNT WORK, EILEEN DID THE TAPPING ON OUR HANDS. AND IT WAS REALLY HELPFUL. ANYWAY, SHE HAD US DESCRIBE TO HER HOW WE FELT IN OUR BODY, THAT PART WAS HARD. THEN SHE SAID, NOW, IF YOUR ARMS COULD MOVE, WHAT WOULD THEY BE DOING? OUR IMMEDIATE ACTION WAS PUNCHING, SO SHE TOLD US TO DO WHAT WE FELT WE NEEDED TO WITH OUR HANDS AND ARMS. THAT FELT KINDA WEIRD TO ME THOUGH. SO THEN SHE SAID, CAN YOU PUSH YOUR HAND AGAINST MINE? SO I DID. AND SHE PUT PRESSURE ON AND I PUSHED, AND PUSHED, HARDER AND HARDER. SHE SAID IT FELT REALLY STRONG. IT SORT OF FEELS LIKE, WO! STEP BACK! SHE SAID. LIKE YOUR SAYING, IN THE PUSHING, NOBODYS GOING TO PUSH ME AROUND! THAT WAS EXACTLY IT! IT FELT SO GOOD THAT THE ANGER HAD SOMEWHERE TO GO, ALL OF THAT ENERGY, HAD SOMEWHERE TO GO. IT MADE US FEEL A SENSE OF RELIEF, A SENSE OF OH MAN THANK GOD! AND TO THINK WE ALMOST DIDNT GO TO THERAPY! IT WAS A REAL BATTLE TO GO BUT WHEN WE DID THAT PIECE OF WORK, MAN WAS I SO GLAD WE WENT! I EVEN SAID AS MUCH TO EILEEN, I TOLD HER HOW GLAD I WAS THAT WE PUSHED THROUGH OUR FEAR ABOUT GOING TO THERAPY AND IT PAYED OFF. I LOVE WHEN WE HAVE A GOOD SESSION. I MEAN WE MOSTLY ALWAYS DO BUT ITS NICE WHEN WE CAN DO A PRODUCTIVE PIECE OF WORK IN THERAPY.
