How EMDR Therapy Transformed My Life: From "God Hole" to "God Whole"
by Marie Pflugrad
I want you to understand that God loves you, wanted you, and created you, regardless of what you have been told. He has a purpose for your life. It’s okay to leave your family of origin when the dysfunction and toxic relationships suck the life out of you and you have no other way to survive and thrive but to leave it all behind. Forgiveness is possible, and it does not mean what the person did was okay, but it will enable you to heal.
EMDR Therapy has been successfully used for over thirty years, primarily by the military, but in recent years it has been recognized as a valuable therapy for other forms of trauma. It was a lifesaving means of reprocessing painful experiences from my upbringing that continued to affect me for many years. The speed and effectiveness of this type of therapy gave me the progress toward healing that I am now benefitting from today. I give the ultimate glory to God for the healing, and I believe He gave me the strength to seek the help I needed. I encourage you, reader, to do the same.
What is EMDR?
In my book “How EMDR Transformed My Life” I share what EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing) is. I also point out links and websites you can go to for more in depth information on the subject, research and successes of this therapeutic methodology, and how it was created. Visit EMDR Institute
