Regulating Sense: a phrase meaning to bring order to a particular sensation [an emotion].
In practice, Regulating Sense means to permanently resolve troubling emotions that affect us by paying attention to the definite but often vague sensations in our bodies, which are in fact the form of our emotions.
When our emotions rule the way we act, feel and think they become a prevailing force in our lives. And if untended, these emotions will affect us in unconscious ways via procrastination, addictions, OCD-like behaviors and poor health.
It doesn’t make us crazy! It means we need a way to resolve the emotions so that we can get back to our true calm, reasonable, peaceful nature.
Emotional Regulation with TiPi
Emotional Regulation with TiPi is a easy way to regulate an emotion on the go or in a 30 minute session in person or on the phone.
The TiPi association developed several protocols to help individuals, adults to children 9 yrs and over.
We don’t have to understand the original trauma or event that caused a particular emotion. During the session, there is no triggering or reliving of the trauma. You don’t have to tell your story or share personal details.
Emotional Regulation with TiPi sessions recall recent emotional situations. By paying attention to the physical sensations in the body and observing them until they dissipate, the emotion is regulated permanently.
Originally developed and used in Europe, this revolutionary process is used by more than 3,000 professionals around the world. And each month over 10,000 sessions authenticate these simple, but powerful TiPi inspired protocols.
Tipi is a French acronym for Technique d’Identification sensorielle des Peurs Inconscientes – Translated as: Technique for the Sensory Identification of Subconscious Fears
When we experience any emotion like fear, doubt, frustration, happiness, love, it is felt in our body as a characteristic set of physical sensations. Generally emotions are reflections of information received from experiences outside our bodies. We internalize the experience of seeing the tiger, for example. as constriction in the chest, a gripping in the gut, a tingling in the legs. Every emotional signature is unique, and not necessarily the same from person to person.
These feelings are relayed to the mind where it is often labeled as “fear”, “anger”, etc. Our mind, either consciously or unconsciously, decides what, if anything, can or should be done: should we react, frown, run, smile, jump for joy?
The Emotion is in the Body. The Reaction and Labeling, goes on in the Mind.
Just as our bodies can heal every cut, scratch or wound it receives, it can metabolize each and every emotion it receives.
In small splits of a second, the emotional information is relayed to the mind and the emotion is regulated and neutralized by the body. The body’s response is whole and complete.
But, when the emotional event is too overwhelming to be processed, a type of amnesia develops preventing the emotional regulation. As a result, a sensorial imprint stays in the body. In the future, when that situation and emotion is triggered again, the unregulated emotional imprint flares up and inflates the mind’s response as a result.
Others may view our reaction is totally over-the-top given the circumstance. But we will see it as mostly reasonable because we are reacting to the present situation and unconsciously to all the previous unregulated emotions of a similar nature. This is “our baggage”. It keeps us on an emotional roller-coaster.
Emotional Regulation with TiPi uses your body’s natural capacity to remove the emotional imprints that remain logged in place. The body does this as easily as it heals any other body injury.
Emotional Regulation using TiPi permanently resolves emotions, behaviors and somatic dysfunction like the following:
Heights, darkness, water, speed, driving, taking the subway or trains, flying, being on a boat, large crowds, dogs, mice, snakes, etc, germs, blood, needles, clowns, death, going to doctor/dentist, etc
PTSD, auto accidents, physical/sexual trauma and abuses, separation and abandonment, grief, divorce/breakups, birth complications, etc
Addictions and unwanted habits of all kinds, anger/rage, violence, aggression, control and resistance, jealousy, self-doubt, avoidance and escape, OCD, stuttering, nervous tics, eating disorders, etc
Often the body’s immune and repair systems are blocked from doing their work by silent emotions. Examples include asthma, eczema, rashes, back/joint pain and stiffness, sciatica, arthritis, fertility, migraines, clenching teeth, TMJ, ailments of the ears, eyes and sinus, COPD, bronchitis, repeating and chronic sickness, any idiopathic disorder such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, etc.
Emotional Regulation with TiPi is complimentary to any and all medical treatment.
