I am a “highly sensitive person” whose body rejects highly spiced food and loud noises and the evening did not go well. Waiters kept promising food I could eat and delivering food that made my mouth burn and induced violent coughing. As we sat there very loud families arrived and the mariachis began to play trumpets! Can you imagine how stressed I felt?
I excused myself while my husband paid the bill and went outside into a beautiful quiet evening to calm myself down. I did some breathing exercises and tapping and I thought I was fine. Then the friend came out and asked if I was OK. I told him, truthfully, that I was. He asked me to describe what happened and I did my best to explain how my body had become extremely tense.
He asked if I would try something new and had me repeat some words I barely understood. Suddenly I experienced a whole new level of deep relaxation of the remaining tension that I had not even been aware of before. I was stunned! I asked what he had done and he told me he had used a new European technique called Logosynthesis.
That happened in 2010. I started taking professional Logosynthesis training a few months later and it has not only changed the way I practice coaching and psychotherapy, allowing me to help my clients much more rapidly and with much less pain, it has changed my own life.
One change is that since that encounter in 2010, my life-long stress reaction to noise has simply disappeared. Another change is that after my first training weekend, which I had been reluctant to schedule because of my stress reaction to the intense overstimulation of airplane travel, I traveled home and simply forgot to be stressed. I have been able to travel on airplanes without any particular reaction ever since. Sadly, I still can’t manage spicy food.
