EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing
Several people have said EMDR worked well for them, including Fiona Barnett and in this post there are quotes from her book and a couple of videos about EMDR.
I am constructing a post designed to give links and information to help those who are just realising that they may have been mind controlled / MK ultra’d. EMDR was a part of this, but now it gets its own post, in an effort to keep the posts shorter.
If anyone has any links or tips for healing from mind controlled and PTSD, or indeed any good videos or information on EMDR, please leave them in the comments or send to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks

This is what Fiona Barnett had to say about EMDR. Her original in her free e book. Fiona’s Book Eyes Wide Open Lockdown Edition pdf download 
When I first heard about EMDR, I dismissed it as a hypnosis offshoot. Like hypnosis,
EMDR is a form of bilateral stimulation. Unlike hypnosis, it is non-suggestive. There are two main ways of delivering EMDR: (1) Directed eye movements, or (2) Alternating bilateral hand taps. I experienced both. When dealing with the strongest memories in the lead up to integration, the therapist would wave a hand back and forth across my eyes. I would then sit back and wait for whatever came to mind. My next therapist had me place my hands face down on a pillow and alternatively tap the tops of my hands.
During EMDR memory reprocessing, memories are retrieved from implicit memory,
processed in working memory, and re-stored in long-term memory. The left brain reprocesses and reorganize the implicit trauma experiences; it sequences the event, applies context (time- date-place), and finds language to describe what happened. The pivotal trauma memories must be retrieved and fully processed, including re-experiencing, or abreacting, the emotions.
EMDR cognitively processes traumatic events. The underlying neural mechanism of action of EMDR remains unknown. EMDR does not appear to produce the altered consciousness state associated with hypnosis.EMDR may act as hemispheric synchronization.
The psychologist in charge of the Monroe Institute advertises EMDR as a form of hemispheric synchronization. Neurobiological models suggest EMDR increases interhemispheric communication via the corpus callosum. The most recent hypothesis is that EMDR simultaneously increases connectivity between the two hemispheres, plus within the right hemisphere. Trauma memories are disseminated into the right hemisphere as meaningless, dissociated fragments, like pieces of a shattered mirror. The goal of EMDR is to reassemble those visual, auditory, and somatosensory fragments.
Freud coined the term abreaction to describe the release of the strong emotion
associated with a repressed trauma memory. The emotion became stuck in time at the point of the original childhood trauma and is being properly processed for the first time, though abreaction. When a victim abreacts implicit trauma memories, the mind and body react as though the childhood event is presently happening. So, when I abreacted being flatlined at age 10 years, I was in danger of my heart stopping again in adulthood.
EMDR pioneer Shapiro devoted a significant portion of her original clinical manual to
defining and describing abreaction, and to providing guidelines for using EMDR to
accommodate abreaction of repressed emotions. 500 On page 96, the author specifically addressed the inherent risks associated with reprocessing near death experiences and torture by electrocution. Shapiro described how practitioners prepared for extreme cases by having resuscitation equipment and medical staff ready.
Abreaction is essential. Presently, I see no other way of processing the emotional
trauma associated with extreme abuse. Yet mainstream therapy is changing the definition and therapeutic role of abreaction. One of my therapists argues that abreaction is too traumatising and has no place in the EMDR reprocessing experience. They prefer to focus on how I feel now about my childhood trauma, as an adult reflecting on the abuse, instead of at the time of the childhood abuse. This is the denial approach pushed by Antony Kidman and the APS guidelines on repressed memories.
This latest addition was devised to address concerns about clients like me whose
trauma memories are extremely intense, and who dissociate during EMDR. Flash EMDR produces favourable results in relatively minor trauma cases that involve natural dissociation and adult trauma experiences. It does not effectively process developmental trauma

stemming from forced dissociation.
Do not compare ritual abuse, trauma-based mind control, and ongoing cult and government harassment, with anything less. The intensity of repressed emotion and subsequent abreaction is proportionate to the severity of the trauma to which it is attached and must be treated accordingly.
I clearly recall the moment the ‘vortex’ to my past opened. It was during an initial
EMDR session. I was suddenly struck with a memory and I nearly leapt from the chair. I describe the vortex as a deep, jagged wound, shaped like the opening an old-fashioned can opener cuts into a tin can. It remained open for 1.5 years and closed the day after Richie Benaud’s death at Easter 2015. My brain informed me the moment it closed, by sending me a soft yet clear image of a thin veil of fresh flesh covering the wound.
The opened vortex allowed unprecedented access to my memories and let me relive and feel the pain associated with my child abuse. During therapy, my memories usually emerged as faint visual images followed by a flood of thoughts and feelings that I experienced at the time of the abuse. I would describe what I saw, before being struck with the repressed emotion. I abreacted the emotion and felt the physical sensations as though the trauma incident were presently occurring. I relived torture, spinning, drugging, unethical hypnosis, and electrocution. I felt the pain as though the torture were happening today. I once heard a radio interview with a leading USA neurologist. He hypothesised that
psychological pain registers in the brain as physical pain. The problem with ervous system pain is that others can’t see it, and therefore they are likely to dismiss its severity. My pain was akin to having one’s physical body smashed up in a car wreck and left to rot without anaesthetic for 1.5 years.
When a memory began surfacing, unless it was immediately processed my symptoms would exacerbate and I became increasingly at risk. The moment I finished processing my memory via EMDR and abreacted the accompanying feelings, the symptoms dissipated, and that memory immediately ceased to bother me.
The most critical times during the therapy process occurred when Gittinger’s suicide programming was activated. Outside of the vortex being opened, and my being triggered, I was not a suicide risk. I did not even contemplate the notion of harming myself. However, mind control programming is layered with commands to involuntarily suicide.
Memory recovery was a violent experience that commenced with vertigo and ended with mild brain damage; it included memory loss and extreme light sensitivity. I suffered vertigo, nausea, chest pain, and cardiac dysrhythmia. The most critical 18 months of memory processing included Mengele’s Core split plus Gittinger’s attachment violation. These months took such a toll on my body, on several occasions I required physical nursing, which was non-existent.
