With EJT, you only get out what you put in, where:
- ‘Putting in’ means flowing with the affirmations in a good mind-state.
- ‘Getting out’ means reconnecting with your soul and doing the self-care work that becomes evident, leading to a period of inner-reflection and letting go.
It’s recommended to cleanse after the first few EJT sessions or when returning after a break. ‘Cleansing’ can be what you’re comfortable with, for example washing, prayer, exercise (like running or swimming in the sea) or a salt bath/shower. The latter example is very effective because salt will clear the aura of surface impurities, such as bad energy, leeching and other bad surface connections. EJT strongly affects the aura ‘from the inside’ and salt affects it ‘from the outside’ therefore it’s a powerful combination. Regardless of EJT, this is a good spiritual hygiene practice to develop.
Binge listening isn’t a good idea (as stated elsewhere.) It might seem odd to say that, because the effects are so immediate and powerful that logically it would seem the more you do the better it will be. This is true to a certain extent, but there’s a catch. When plugging back into your spirit and soul all the issues, patterns and behaviours not truly you are up for review. For some people it might be a walk in the park to resolve, but that’s not going to be true for everyone. EJT is like a stone dropped into a pond. As gratifying as the splash is, it’s the ripples that cause the change. The bigger the ripples, the greater the pressure for change will become. Psychologically that isn’t easy and so lots of self-care needs to be taken.
Review the session afterwards. Note which affirmations you ‘didn’t believe’ or struggled to speak cleanly. They are the key problem areas suppressing your chakra personality. It’s a good thing to observe because it shows where the work’s going to be focussed. In your personal journey of self-review, harnessing those words as signposts will aid you tremendously.
There’s an affirmation variation that supports the signposts. For example, where there’s a problem with having ‘community’, you affirm ‘I release isolation,’ or other antonym of choice. The key being ‘I release something.’ Keep it simple and don’t deviate from the basics. You can stack as many ‘I release’ affirmations as feels right, but don’t conjoin them otherwise the intention gets watered down. Here’s a good stacked example: ‘I release isolation. I release disconnection. I release conflict.’ Note that not all antonyms are necessarily of relevance. Stating ‘I release privacy’ isn’t generally a good thing. Keep it balanced and ensure the words used actually relate to how you feel. Only you know where the work needs to be done.
EJT affirmations don’t require the audio. By design, there’s very little about EJT which is prescriptive. Get used to saying the gratitude and release affirmations you benefit from the most as part of regular prayer, exercise or meditation. The calmer you are when doing so, the stronger the connection will be.
One final pointer; during the lead in to the affirmations, it’s worth focusing on (that is: feeling) the chakra being worked on to aid the energy context. Regardless, the affirmations will still impact the chakras they key into and some affirmations will affect several chakras at once.
