When people call me to find out more about Brain Integration, they often ask me if they will need to come back in the future to become reintegrated. The good news I gladly share with them is that most people will never need to have their brain integrated again! Much of the work completed during an integration is permanent. Now, there are exceptions to this, and that’s what I want to discuss.
Every step completed in the brain integration process can be permanent, but certain neural pathways might shut down if subjected to a significant physical or emotional trauma. As an example, a child who has self-esteem and/or confidence issues can have these addressed in their BIT session. However, if this child returns to a home where he or she is demeaned, belittled and abused (verbally, emotionally, or physically) the issues will inevitably return. New traumatic experiences can result in certain neural pathways to malfunction.
When we are young, usually two years old or younger, our brain has not yet learned how to cope with traumatic events. When faced with such an event, the young brain will shut down in order to escape from the experience of the traumatic event. Sometimes those neural pathways that were shut off don’t turn back on, resulting in Deep Level Switching, malfunctioning Corpus Callosum, vestibular, and/or visual issues as described here. As the brain matures, it learns better methods to cope with trauma and typically doesn’t shut off neural pathways dealing with these specific areas.
In summary, the Crossinology Brain Integration Technique is permanent in regards to addressing malfunctioning neural pathways that manifest as learning disabilities. These neural pathways typically only shut off again in the event of future significant physical trauma. BIT is effective in balancing emotions towards people, places, things, and memories which have already occurred. Emotional balancing might need to be completed again if the individual has not addressed or removed the subject of the negative emotion appropriately and continues to interact with that subject. In many cases, mental health counseling would be an effective companion to BIT in addressing these issues, as I discussed in the last blog post.
