The dive method

Description

In life, we find that much of what holds us back is fear. This was the theme of the movies, “Defending Your Life,” in which, after dying, the main character must examine his life only to find that he continually made decisions which restrained his personal growth due to his fear and lack of belief in self. Certainly other emotions like shame and guilt, sadness and anger play key parts in the reprocessing of trauma. However, experience has shown that fear is quite often either related to the emotion that is associated with the trauma focus, or the stated emotion turns into fear as reprocessing commences.
