Question: I have been having trouble with my health for some
time and it has affected my mood. I feel weird and somewhat down. I am
not a depressed person, so this has me concerned. What can I do when
working on my feelings?
Dr. Paul: Of course, it is necessary to seek all avenues of
medical help. That's necessary for taking care of the physical
problems. However, you can affect your emotional, spiritual and even
your physical state of being with several different therapeutic
The simplest and
easiest method for breaking out of a physical funk is to become
familiar with and expert at using the Free Association abreactive, cathartic emotional
became a major psychotherapeutic approach through psychoanalysis. It
later advanced on to more fully emotional release categories, where
crying and tears would break down the blockages and release pain.
You would lie down
on a comfortable surface and if possible have some trusted other sit
quietly nearby, just listening and being there.
Center yourself and
focus on everything that you are thinking and feeling and express it
without censorship through verbal expression. At some point, you should
or could break open and feel your breathing increase and the crying
reflex kicking in.
Keep expressing and
saying everything that is in your mind, your heart and your soul. Don't
hold anything back! Keep going as long and as far as you possibly can.

If you are familiar
with the emotional Chakra system, you will experience different parts
of your body opening up and releasing information, wisdom, knowledge
and ultimate relief. Your sense of self, your power and your feeling of
well-being should return.
Question: Can this method also improve my physical condition?
Dr. Paul: By deep cathartic crying, emotional release and
therapeutic verbal expression, you are not only improving your emotional
state of being, you are also releasing a stress hormone called cortisol.
Your tears will
contain this stress hormone and its release effect on your body will be
extremely positive. It may not cure your physical problems. But, it
will make your life worth living. It will also change the chemistry of
your brain and any negative thoughts that you harbor.
Question: My day is very hectic and
what do I have to do to remember to take this time out and care for
Dr. Paul: The unconscious mind has a way of informing you that
it needs your emotional, spiritual and physical attention. Develop a
third eye and a third ear that becomes experienced at tuning into your
need to release pain and take care of your emotional being.
Question: Can you give me examples of how this method has
helped other people?
Dr. Paul: I can testify as to the great benefits it has given
me. On a much broader and wider scope, I can give you the testimony of
a woman named Cheryl. After a very successful therapeutic journey
through a highly individualized and designed program, Cheryl states
that making the decision to pursue Deep Feeling therapy was the
greatest and best decision of her entire life. Of course, she has used
many other of my deep feeling methods, besides
Free Association, to become whole and healthy. She has gone from being
a very closed down, repressed and physically restricted woman to being
a superstar. Currently, she is entering into what I call Matriarch
status...... where she is on the verge of formulating a great personal
and family story. It's a new and greater world for Cheryl.
