On the issue of logic: introducing Holistic Belief Reprogramming

Hi everybody,

Before I get started with today’s article, I wanted to thank all of you for the hundreds of birthday well wishes I have received. It warms my heart and makes me feeling very supported and appreciated. Thank you for that.

Now I’m going to talk about something that I have waited for a very long time to reveal to my readers.

For the past year and a half since I started blogging and promoting “alternative” healing and self-development methods such as What Is Holistic Belief Reprogramming?, my critics have accused me of not being “logical” enough. The notion that an acupressure-based system of belief change such as tapping could be so much more powerful than any conventional method of self-improvement available on the market today was just way beyond their current reality or comfort zone.

I have indeed said on this blog that logic is close to useless when it comes to solving any actual real human problem, and I meant it. My critics were up in arms, saying I was ignoring “reality” and “logic” and every other form of conventional wisdom. When those comments would come in, I sat back and felt somewhat amused because I was not ready yet to share what I am going to share with you today.

Does Erika Awakening understand logic?

Today I will reveal some details about my background that I have never discussed before on this blog.

I did have formal training before I entered the world of self-improvement and alternative healing.

I graduated from Harvard Law School. And not only did I graduate from HLS, it was magna cum laude. They didn’t give us official class rankings there, but based on my grade point average, I was approximately in the top 2% of my class, give or take. I very nearly clerked for the U.S. Supreme Court.

Does Erika understand logic?

Right now I could be making millions of dollars being an attorney in private practice, employing a whole lot of “logic.”

But I choose instead to coach people using the methods I discuss on this blog day in and day out.

Do you know why that is?

Because my extensive experience in the world of law taught me something quite precious: it taught me that logic does not solve anything.

I watched corporations spend millions of dollars litigating disputes that could have been resolved in one or two days of compassionate mediation.

It broke my heart to see people trying to use logic to solve conflicts, and instead finding themselves more and more deeply entrenched in turmoil and expensive battles.

And meanwhile, the deeper I got into that world, the more my own personal life went to shit.

Even the first year of law school I knew it was stealing my soul. I knew it intuitively, but I allowed “logic” to override my intuition, and I have paid dearly for it. I plowed through, and what I lost in the process was my aliveness, my spontaneity, my creativity, and my femininity.

It wasn’t until I landed in a hospital bed four years ago within inches of my life, and had a full on near-death experience, that I knew something had to change.

Do you know why I almost died? Because “logic” had nearly killed my soul, and I was half dead inside.

My career was going great.

My relationships were in shambles.

My body was wracked with chronic and very intense pain that made it impossible even to sit in a normal chair. So I did the “logical” thing and went to see traditional doctors. And you know what? They couldn’t do anything for me.

Do you know why? Because the root of my issue was not “logical.” It was emotional. Trying to solve it with logic only kept me stuck.

After I got out of the hospital, I began the spiritual journey that has landed me here.

Upon discovering Emotional Freedom Technique (or tapping), I began using it every single day, first just on myself and over time with many other people. I unraveled one emotional issue after another.

I studied compassionate communication, Reiki, A Course in Miracles, and countless other spiritual methods.

And as I did so, my chronic pain disappeared. My relationships started improving. Old intractable conflicts dissolved. New opportunities began opening up in every area of my life. People began to be magnetized to me. Dozens of men started pursuing me romantically. I received numerous marriage proposals.

My acupuncturist was amazed at how my chi (life energy) had become completely un-stagnant and healthy again.

Everything was changing, and really, really fast :)

It became very obvious to me that if I could apply my system to other people’s lives, hour for hour, I would be able to give them FAR more value and true satisfaction and empowerment than I’ll ever be able to give them as an attorney.

Thus, passion took precedence over my paycheck.

I devoted myself in my off hours almost obsessively to understanding from the ground up exactly how I had transformed my own life, and how I could do this for other people as well.

Over the course of the past four years, my legal education did serve me in one way. I took all the emotional and spiritual teachings that I was learning and refining into a “logical” framework, that is, a holistic understanding of how people’s belief systems operate and create their realities.

When you remove your limiting beliefs, and your judgments and your fears, infinite possibilities will begin to open up for you.

I am now ready to unveil the system that I have been developing for four years.

I call it Holistic Belief Reprogramming (HBR).

Your beliefs create your reality. If you can change your beliefs at the level where it really matters — subconsciously — everything you see and experience in your life will change.

My system will overhaul your entire belief system, and the reality you experience will transform right along with it.

It’s like getting into a computer to de-fragment the hard drive and reprogram it. It’s like getting under the hood of a car and rebuilding the engine.

Only this is YOUR ENTIRE LIFE we are talking about here.

Your fears, anger, limiting beliefs, and other unhealthy patterns will simply start dissolving right before your eyes. And you will feel sooooooo liberated!

Thank you, and have a wonderful day :)

  1. Hey Halffull,

    that's what HBR essentially does. Intuition is the bridge between logic and emotion.

    Even as a lawyer, the secret to winning cases is to capture the judges hearts and heads at the same time :)

    truth is I can explain 'logically' the structure of just about any problem after I interview someone. The problems that show up have very

  2. Personally, I've found that the best path is when you can unify your logic and your emotions :).

  3. Hey Erika,

    You ever do Yoga? What's your opinion of yoga for healing?

    Erika, I'm so thrilled you let us all in on your secret! When I first met you in SF, someone revealed your profession accidentally to me so I always knew where you were coming from, what you have seen and what you realized did not work, can't really work as an effective means to correct human misfortunes and mistakes, no matter how much logic is applied to it, there is an emotional
