How to Do Self EMDR

If it's been scientifically proven that Adverse Childhood Experiences (aka Trauma) can cause diseases and mental illness, then why can't we also help heal those diseases and mental illnesses by healing the childhood trauma? And if it works with childhood trauma, why can't it work with trauma that occurs in adulthood? After all, the brain is a very amazing thing and can adapt and change.

Check out the story of Kendal Levine (watch video halfway through HERE) who was thought to remain in a vegetative state, OR the boy, HERE, who was born without a brain and wasn't expected to live but ended up growing a brain, OR Louise Hay who grew up being abused and later healed her own cancer.

Self EMDR

Here's how to do POSITIVE self EMDR to help with trauma and help you love yourself. No therapist is needed because there's no digging into scary trauma, its just about getting the EMDR to open up your brain and better receive the affirmation **WARNING: Do not do this with traumatic memories without a therapist. I am not liable for anything that happens **



Pick one of my playlist videos, or search your own, and listen to a video with headphones while you are alone (alone as you can be), preferably at the computer so you have a larger screen. Follow the target with your eyes and the entire time it is playing I want you to say an affirmation over and over. 

If you can't get to a computer than you can even do the EMDR yourself by finding a bright colored highlighter, pen, or object and moving it back and forth in your hand as far away from your face as possible, and side to side as far as your eyes can follow. Don't move your head, only follow with your eyes. To learn more about affirmations and what they are click HERE

After you are done,  if you are up for it, you can also get a blank piece of notebook paper and fill up an entire page, or even listen to one of these videos with headphones while you write the affirmation over and over and over. . (also try and doodle affirmations as much as you can๐Ÿ˜ I love to say the affirmation out loud while I write them) :

Isochronic/Binaural tones. Choose the video that feels the best to you.

Example Affirmations :


I love you _____ (say your name.  YES it feels silly,  but for some reason it works really well when speaking to your child self)

I love and approve of myself


It is safe for every part of my body to relax and feel peace.

I am safe.

I WANT to love and approve of myself. (sometimes saying "I want to love myself" instead of "I love myself" can be a good way of easing into affirmations. Especially if you struggle feeling like the affirmations are lies ๐Ÿค—) 

I WANT to feel safe. 

I want to see myself with love. 

All is well.

It is safe for me to care for myself

I digest with ease

I want to release my weight
