“Everyone has powerful tools at their fingertips for self-healing,” says Larry Burk, a Durham-based physician with extensive training in energy healing, hypnosis, acupuncture, dream interpretation, medical intuition and the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT). At SFF’s February lecture, Larry will specifically explore two of those tools—dream interpretation and EFT or tapping, to help us do a better job of healing ourselves.
As an introduction, he writes:
- You can use your fingers to open a dream diary and to write down a health-related question that you would like an answer to from the dream world.
- You can tap yourself to sleep with EFT, using your second and third fingertips on the acupressure points to release any blocks you may have to healing left over from the day.
- Keep your diary by your bedside and write down any dreams you get in response to your question. Identify the most distressing parts of your dreams and use the “Dream to Freedom Technique” to tap on these important transformative messages from your subconscious.
Larry will discuss these techniques as well as his multidimensional approach to dream interpretation that includes personal, shadow, warning, sexual, social, archetypal, synchronistic, and precognitive perspectives. Some of his dream work techniques involve having people circle any words that seem to be unusual or out of place and look them up in a dictionary to check for word play or unexpected puns related to their questions. Another recommendation is to check for any recurrent theme from past dreams and pay attention to any animals that visited in the dream world. Finally, he advises people to ask themselves, “What does the dream want?” It is seriously possible, he says, that the spirit world may have a question it wants the person to answer in return.
If a shadow or dark part emerges in a dream, Larry recommends using EFT to transform it into enlightened gold. When a negative experience occurs, he says, it is as if a malware program you don’t want is installed in your acupuncture meridian system.
“Tapping on the acupuncture points,” he says, “is like hitting the delete key, so you can uninstall the program. Once the program is gone and you re-save the file, the memory will be altered forever. The next time you open the file, the pictures and story will still be there, but the program will be gone. Then your body will not respond in a negative way, so you will have emotional freedom. Once you learn how to deal with your nightmares in this way, you can address your symptoms in your physical body in the same fashion, since it is all a waking dream anyway.”
