This is a VERY interesting article!! I’d love to create some discussion about this. The observation discussed in the article is ready made for tapping. I’m going to incorporate it myself and report on my experience.
I’m very familiar with ‘distancing’ as a therapeutic technique to lessen emotions. For example ‘The Fast Phobia Cure’ developed in the 1970’s by the NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) founders relies entirely on visual dissociation (distancing) 'see yourself sitting in a movie theater watching yourself on the screen’ (double dissociation) and is very predictably useful. This is another way of creating that inner experience using language…2nd and 3rd person pronouns. I’m really interested in exploring this.
