Psychologist Allan Botkin has created a
new kind of therapy for grief. He uses "eye movement
desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR)." He discovered
this while working with United States soldiers who had fought
in Vietnam. In 98% of cases he found that by moving their
eyes left to right in a rhythic way the clients could experience
having a vivid meeting with someone who had died.
Most people felt they were in the presence of the person
who had died and could talk directly to them. Some people
saw they person, head their voice, felt their touch and
or could smell them.
At first Allan Botkin thought that these
experiences were all in the mind, but then he discovered
that the psychologist who was watching could also see the
meeting (Botkin 2005, pp.91-99).
The process is repeatable, teachable and promises to be
an interesting new method of research. It also gives immediate
help to people who feel a lot of grief or guilt about someone
who has died.
It doed not seem to matter who long ago the death happened.
The experience of reconnection usually occurs easily and
quickly for most people, and the resulting healing seems
to hold completely over time.
