AND REM EMOTIONAL CLEANSING REM ® :
A NEW FRONTIER IN DYNAMIC PSYCHOLOGY
Life is characterised by energy and information. From the moment of
conception these two elements mould the biological and psychic development
of the individual in such a way that each cell preserves, as though
on a recording tape, the memory of everything. The impression that
these two forces – energy and information – make during
the foetal period and at the moment of birth is fundamental to the
psychophysical development of the person to be. In other words, what
happens during conception, gestation and the trauma of birth, survives
in the individual not as a conscious cognitive memory but as a record
of energy and information.
Hence a cage of energy is created which allows only limited interactions
and experiences in an individual’s life.
This explains why we always end up in the same situations and fall
into the same mistakes.
If a woman is convinced that men are naturally faithless, she will
have created around herself such an energy-information cage that she
only ever encounters men who themselves possess a corresponding aura
Our very thoughts constitute energy and information: we are what we
think we are.
We are all thinking bodies in a thinking universe. In the same way
in which the molecules of our body are projections of our thoughts,
so the pulses of energy and information project themselves into our
surroundings in the form of space time events.
In this way, therefore, thoughts condition our whole world and thus
In a profound sense our life experience and all the events that appear
to befall us, happen because we make them happen. We are 100% responsible
for all the outcomes in our lives.
How is it possible to escape from the cage? By loosening the knots
that energy and information have tied throughout the years.
To achieve this it is necessary to allow large flows of energy through
the body by means of a fundamental life force: breathing, coupled
with the stimulation of points along the Chinese meridian lines or
other reflexogenic systems of the body such as the feet, the hands
or the ears.
This technique, that associates breathing, the stimulation of points
in the skin, coupled with work on the thoughts, energy and information,
is known as “REM Emotional Cleansing ”.
Energy is needed in order to release and integrate the information.
Biologically speaking, energy and oxygen are the same…
Using oxygen, food is transformed into energy. Food, like firewood,
needs oxygen to keep the process going.
The rate of combustion is linked to the amount of oxygen available.
Oxygen, therefore, is of major importance in all life processes.
It is not by chance that most men and women breathe little and poorly.
They do it so as not to feel emotion, so as not to enter into their
So, what can we do to break into the emotional cage that energy and
information have created around us? Above all breathe in a manner
that is both aware, connected and circular, in order to allow all
the freeing of all those experiences that have been suppressed and
stored in the cellular memory.
Constrictions of the throat, thorax and pelvis obstruct the free and
natural flow of breath so that we avoid feeling our emotions: in fact,
wherever there are constrictions energy cannot flow freely and where
energy is not allowed to flow there are no feelings, no emotions,
but instead slavery to fear.
Both energy and breath move from top to bottom, as though one is saying,
At the points of constriction this vertical wave tends to be forced
into a horizontal oscillation that says “no”.
To loosen the rigidity and the consequent energy blocks that manifest
themselves in the meridians and the chakras, one must work on the
different parts of the outer shell, using the fingers to stimulate
the various points along the meridians.
Stimulation may come in three forms:
• Rhythmic percussion
• Progressive pressure
The subject lies down with knees bent, feet flat on the floor or on
the couch, eyes closed, arms parallel with the body, mouth open with
the jaw relaxed. He or she is asked to breathe deeply through the
mouth, imagining that air is being drawn from the feet and pulled
up, by expansion of the chest, as far as the inn trang point between
the eyebrows. The whole body should take part in this breathing. During
inhalation force should be exerted, while on the out breath air should
leave the body naturally, with the mouth open and relaxed.
There should be no pause between inhaling and exhaling. Many pressure
points may be stimulated, each one being linked to a specific emotional
block. Let’s now look at some examples of sessions involving
the principal points.
The therapist begins the session with straightforward bilateral contact
with point 2 on the Bladder Meridian, at the same time visualising
his own energy as it connects with the subject.
Next he passes to the major point of the ocular segment, pressing
it with increasing force at each inhalation. This point corresponds
with the unblocking of the upper ring of the cage, the segment of
control and judgement.
From here one moves on to the major maxillary point, the second ring
of the cage, which releases anger and repressed aggression. Next there
is point 14 of the stomach meridian, in the upper part of the chest,
also known as the point of emotional trauma, in that it brings to
the surface old traumas that have not been expressed and integrates
them into the whole. Then he moves on to the epigastric area of the
solar plexus where he stimulates the major point of unassimilated
emotion. Still on the meridian he moves down to the hypogastric area
beneath the navel in order to unblock the pelvic energy that is linked
to sexuality and creativity. A point on the right of the abdomen,
corresponding to point 27 of the stomach meridian is also of fundamental
importance for unblocking suppressed grief and loss.
During the treatment it is most important that the subject reaches
the point where the legs quiver. This is a sign of unblocking and
the passage of energy.
In some cases one can carry out the session with two therapists in
chelation: one simply to touch the energy points such as Bladder 2
or Bladder 10 at the nape of the neck, the other to stimulate the
points. In order to achieve a deeper regressive trance a device that
emits electromagnetic pulses may be used. Here we see the stimulation
of the point of the solar plexus and, next, a point at the centre
of the chest on the channel of conception, also known as the point
of lack of love, painful in all persons who have the feeling of not
having received enough affection.
In collective sessions the therapist moves from one subject to another
stimulating the various points as necessary.
With REM Emotional Cleansing it is as though one has entered one’s
own interior library, with the possibility of consulting each phase
of one’s physical and spiritual existence.
REM Emotional Cleansing in water warmed to 38 degrees, is carried
out in three phases. For the first 45 minutes one breathes underwater
using an air tube and nose clip. This serves to reawaken the fetal
While breathing the subject is assisted by two people who represent
the father and mother.
In the second phase of 15 minutes, the subject breathes slowly while
lying on his back, in order to come to terms with his experiences.
Finally, in the third phase he is received back into life by his two
In the polarised world that encompasses us there are only two realities:
love and fear.
If we fail to live by love, seeing with an open heart, we become slaves
to fear. This creates around our hearts a cage that grows heavier
and heavier, preventing us from living our emotions.
Anyone who is afraid of losing control of his own emotions has, in
reality, already lost control, for he is controlled by fear.
