Hi Carolyn, yes a slight but real backlash to Energy Medicine practitioners who lack Emotional Intelligence and intervene too roughly is evident to me too. We have less of this problem here in Los Angeles for a few reasons. One of the biggest training orgs in practical spirituality, University Of Santa Monica, functions, practices and teaches Emotional Intelligence as well as I am able to imagine this being done.
Another reason is the vast majority of advanced energetic practitoners and trauma unlockers in L.A. seem to use one or more forms of self-testing (Muscle Testing 2.0). This encourages them to be self-connected before and during working with clients.
A third reason is about half of local holistic practitioners have been exposed to or taken training in Compassionate (nonviolent) Communication (NVC). NVC can be conceived of as Emotional Intelligence 2.0.
Contact me if you wish support in bringing any of these skills to your area. I’m at HealingToolbox.org
