Confrontational means that during a first cause therapy session you will face directly the problem that you want to solve. Therefore, you will confront with the somatic, emotional and mental charges of sometimes intense levels. This process is necessary in order to reach the deep layers of your problem and ultimately the source, the first cause of your problem. This method of therapy will not guide you through the easy way. Rather it looks for and guides you to the way as the way comes forth. This tunes in precisely to your very own personal experience of the problem.
First thing that comes to mind
In order for the therapy to be effective, items need to be taken into consideration as they first appear into the mind during the therapeutic process. This opens the gate to a different way to the day to day experience. At the same time it reveals deep aspects of yourself. Some of them, you have not taken into consideration before. Working with them is not necessarily hard. Nevertheless, confronting yourself with them may put you in contrast with the every day habit of immediately giving meaning to all you experience.
Meaning does come and it is important for it to come. However, a round meaning comes not at the beginning of the session but rather at the end of it. So you will probably confront yourself during your first experience with the therapy with holding back the desire to immediately find the meaning of what you experience. Instead, go with the flow build upon the problem you are currently facing.
In addition, you may experience during this direct contact with your deep self, situations that challenge your view of the world and self, prior to the session. This has also a confrontational component. For example, the existence of a soul, your soul, or in case you reach what seems to be a past life, the existence of past lives. The therapeutic process has no objective to make you believe anything. It will just guide you on the path you lay ahead according to the specificity of your problem. Deciding upon the character of the experiences you encounter during the session is a personal decision. All things considered, you can freely ponder upon it. Only, after some time the session will have been ended. In fact, no matter what your decision might be, please keep in mind that the therapy aims to heal, to solve problems. The rest is an experience, a personal journey.
Under this circumstances you cannot undergo a first cause therapy session if you have heart problems. The confrontational nature of the therapy and the sometimes intense emotional level of involvement into the therapeutic process engage your heart fully. In addition, you need to be able to have your mind as an interface between the here and now and the deep levels of your self. Equally important are bodily and emotional awareness since through them, the path to the first cause is built.
A lively process
In conclusion, this therapeutic method is not meant to be an easy process, a passive endeavor, but a lively challenging one. This in turn offers the benefits of a short number of session (one or two) to solve most of the problems. At the same time it enables you to acquire long lasting results in the few hours a session takes place.
All the stirring up of the self coming from the confrontational aspect stills down after the therapy session. In order to ease the process you can follow the advice from the Emphasize section.
