“HOW TO OVERCOME PHANTOM EMOTIONS,” FEATURING HELEN KRAMER INTERVIEW BY ALAN STEINFELD, NOW AVAILABLE ON NEW REALITIES’ YOUTUBE CHANNEL
Renowned Author, Therapist, and Healer, Kramer Guides us Past Triggers from Childhood, Liberating Us from Pain and Suffering
NEW YORK, NY - July 10, 2018 - Renowned author, therapist and healer Helen Kramer created the term “phantom emotions,” to describe emotional reactions from childhood that persist and get triggered, causing us a great deal of unnecessary pain-and-suffering. Kramer’s term is inspired by the medical term “phantom limb,” describing the phenomenon that happens when a person has a limb, breast, eye, or tooth removed - people often experience sensations in these body parts that are no longer present.
Just as the cells in our brains memorize ghostlike experiences of physical pain, our brain and nervous system can hardwire phantom memories of painful experiences from childhood that are no longer there.
For the first time, Kramer spoke about her “phantom emotion” theory in public at The Assemblage Nomad and revealed newly developed tools for dissolving these ghost-like emotional patterns. Through tailor-made visualizations, mantras and meditations, informed by cutting-edge research, Kramer taught attendees how to identify these phantom emotions and how to replace them and live as the empowered, confident adults they have always desired to be. According to Kramer, all of our addictions, compulsions, and obsessions are the result of the persistence of these phantom emotions and are attempts to escape or release us from the pain we feel when these patterns are triggered.
“Everyone wants to be happy, joyful and fulfilled,” said Kramer. “However, we have a brain that is wired for fear because all living creatures are wired for a fight-flight response to survive. Our brain cannot tell the difference between stress and danger, reminding us of our triggers from the past to protect us with these ‘phantom emotions.’ To change this pattern, I work with people to realize that every behavior has a positive intent. When we are in the fear part of our brain, we are reacting like a reflex. We must train our brain and nervous system to respond differently, allowing us to pull back from our phantom emotions.”
This free video, going in-depth with tools and tactics to overcome phantom emotions, is now available on the New Realities Youtube Channel, featuring Kramer’s interview by Alan Steinfeld, the founder, producer, and host for twenty years. In that time he has produced over 2,000 interviews with leading-edge thinkers, scientists, artists, paradigm shifters and religious leaders from around the world. Kramer was introduced by Marissa Feinberg, Founder and Chief Storyteller of Triple Bottom Why PR.
