Stress is a normal physical response to events that make you feel threatened or upset in some way. When you sense danger – whether it’s real or imagined – the body’s defenses kick into high gear in a rapid, automatic process known as the “fight-or-flight” reaction, or the stress response. The stress response is the body’s way of protecting you. When working properly, it helps you stay focused, energetic, and alert. In emergency situations, stress can save your life – giving you extra strength to defend yourself, for example, or spurring you to slam on the brakes to avoid an accident. The stress response also helps you rise to meet challenges. Stress is what keeps you on your toes during a presentation at work, sharpens your concentration, or drives you to study for an exam when you’d rather be doing something else

But beyond a certain point, stress stops being helpful and starts causing major damage to your health, your mood, your productivity, your relationships, and your quality of life. I often use the analogy of an emotional barrel that we all have that gets filled up over time with negative events that we aren’t able deal with. The more full the barrel gets, the more prone we are to experiencing the stress response in different situations. Another consequence of a “full barrel” is that it completely affects our perception of the world. Our thoughts and beliefs are intricately linked with how we feel. Therefore when we feel very stressed, every situation we come across seems far bigger and more threatening than it actually is, leading to further stress.

If either yourself or someone you know seems “over emotional”, teary or prone to emotional outbursts, you can almost guarantee that their emotional barrel is full. There are two ways to release this bad energy and become stress free, no matter how bad a situation you find yourself in. One is to identify the disempowering beliefs, then perform sophisticated techniques to replace them with empowering beliefs that allow us to enjoy life more fully. The second, and by far the most rapid, is to remove the emotion associated with the things that are currently bothering you. The techniques I use are incredibly powerful and once learned can be used autonomously for any situation that arises that causes you to have an emotional reaction. Removing the emotions that are powering the beliefs about a particular concept, often completely alters an individuals perception of the situation and more often than not, the old beliefs often seem laughable in hindsight.

No matter how stressed an individual is, my techniques have the ability to completely remove the stress in a very short space of time, thereby giving you the energy you need to deal with whatever issue you are facing. A stressed person cannot really enjoy life. With these techniques at your disposal, your life can literally change overnight.
