Spiritual Response Therapy: Energy Modality or Holy Grail?

I have always been interested in figuring out how life works and how to make it better. I’m certainly not alone. Like many in the helping professions, I have always been fascinated by the motivations behind human behavior. This interest really took hold back in the mid-1980’s when I realized that I needed some outside help to figure out my life. I found a great psychotherapist who helped me identify childhood patterns and issues that explained much of why I did what I did. I devoted myself whole heartedly to therapy and it changed my life. I even dove into therapy again about 10 years ago with another awesome therapist after a good friend died and I experienced very deep grief.

Despite the amazing changes psychotherapy helped bring about in my life, there were a several issues that just didn’t seem to shift. I started to suspect that we all have a few issues with deeper roots than psychotherapy on its own could get to and resolve so I went on a hunt for a modality that could not only identify these core issues, but also clear them. I tried many different methods and they all helped, but I when I found Spiritual Response Therapy (SRT) I danced for joy.

Spiritual Response Therapy is my own personal Holy Grail. Its ability to get to the heart of the most deeply embedded issues and clear them still astounds and delights me. Sometimes this process is almost instantaneous, appearing almost magical, while other times it works on an issue over a long period of time before results are obvious. It depends, like everything else, on our level of resistance to change and the spiritual “programs” that are standing in our way.

I have learned that Spirit is not on the clock. Just because I want to be free of some issue today or I want something to manifest by tomorrow morning does not mean that it is going to happen that way. What I have also learned through SRT is that it doesn’t really matter how long it takes to unravel an issue or problem because the journey itself is always illuminating. Sometimes the process is frustrating, like when you are learning a new language or trying to master a new sport, but it is always illuminating…and often even fun. When you start looking for the meaning behind your pain and suffering, instead of just whining about it (which I have done more times than I care to count), you gain insights into your own nature and the nature of reality that make life very worth living.

I’ll explain more about SRT and its amazing real life applications in future blog posts.
