Borderline Personality Disorder Alternative View

Borderline Personality Disorder sounds pretty final and grim. But that is if you view it from a psychology angle.

From a holistic energy healing angle, it all sounds much different. As an alternative holistic energy healer and EFT practitioner, I see this as merely an energy imbalance made up of rejection.

The rejection may be due to a bad childhood due to bad parenting or problems at school (sometimes also problems from sessions with psychologists). This changes the person's energy to attract rejection and so is often followed by a series of rejection events in adulthood. As an adult, this may manifest as self-destructive behavior (including co-dependency), addictions, or depression.

Depression and self-hatred because of a harrowing childhood with unfit or abusive parents is definitely treatable with EFT. Inner child work like Matrix Reimprinting, Parts work, and allowing time for healing all help. It took a whole childhood for this energy imbalance to be so debilitating. It makes perfect sense that a few months or years may be needed to put it right – maybe for the first time ever. I use Chasing the Pain, the Box Technique, and other refinements to make this as gentle a process as possible. A fine balance has to be made between the desired speed of progress and the need for gentleness and delicacy when handling such highly-charged material.

I have often mixed the above work with Reiki or a gentle hypnotic relaxation for maximizing gentleness.

For self-hatred, I use a visual diagram, where we draw the person and I say “OK, which parts of you do you hate the most?” and also ask for which parts they hate the least. Then we tap about the different parts of the diagram. By the end of the session, we could have raised self-love or self-worth by as much as 1%; this is great progress to start with. Eventually, the percentages grow faster. I also use my own technique, Mountains of Self-Worth. This is another visual diagram that we draw; this time we draw it to see how we compare ourselves with others. Then we tap, using normal EFT statements along with reframes to improve how we compare ourselves to others.

Lack of confidence and self-depreciation connected to a neurodiversity is even more easily treatable with EFT, as long as the person can be happy to connect with that sensitive person within. The person with ADHD, autism, or other neurodiverse condition does not even have to have a label to it. After all, it is just a sensitivity overall, including a sensitive nervous system. The owner of such a nervous system would have many incidents in childhood and adulthood where they were misunderstood, rejected by their peers, or did not fit in. Each incident is easily tappable with EFT. When enough incidents have been tapped, the effect will generalize over all of them, and the person's energy will change. Reframes help tremendously here, such as “I thought I was stupid/unsociable/unwanted, but the teacher/other kids just didn't speak my language, and nobody taught me how to speak theirs.”

And addictive behavior is best treated by going through events involving this behavior. The first step is to recognize that the behavior is part of an addiction. The sooner the emotional blocks in the path to admitting that a problem exists, the sooner the person can start working on this behavior and find freedom from its confines.

The energy of rejection is only energy. We can release it. And although it can manifest in a Borderline Personality Disorder diagnosis, it still is only an energy disruption. Tapping balances the body's energy system, and with regular application of gentle EFT, we can move towards happiness, self-worth, and most of all peace.
