Taking things less seriously can help you to become more stable

“With regard to energy field mechanics, instability results from the energy field’s inability to maintain a certain state of calm and balance. This instability leads to an autonomous momentum for which the energy field can no longer compensate”, explains energy field mechanic Rico Brunner.

Instability can be caused by a variety of factors. People who feel unstable tend to withdraw and avoid situations and interactions with others. Brunner explains that they develop an avoidance strategy. He can support them in developing stability with his energy field mechanics.

It is important to avoid dramatizing your experiences, and it may sometimes even be beneficial to trivialize them because instability is always a result of feeling overwhelmed. Brunner states that trivializing distressing events can have a calming effect. Of course, this is very difficult and does not always work. It is important to give yourself enough time and to not put too much pressure on yourself. “Celebrate small successes so that you can grow from them.”

Rico Brunner. When are people emotionally unstable?

I believe that various approaches can be beneficial in determining whether someone experiences emotional instability. As an energy field mechanic, I view instability as a result of the energy field’s inability to maintain a certain sense of calm. The energy field can no longer compensate for this autonomous momentum. One might say that instability is the result of uncontrolled activity within the energy field that disrupts its normal functions. It is very difficult to return to a sense of stability and calm because it takes time and targeted intervention to reestablish stability.

How does a person’s instability present itself?

Various factors can be an indicator for an instability. On the one hand, there is the instability that is caused by the energy field’s inability to cope with external influences. It is the result of inappropriate responses to distressing external stimuli. High sensitivity – a topic that is frequently discussed these days – is a form of instability.

On the other hand, instability can also result from feeling overwhelmed. A lot of people want to or need to work so much until they eventually become exhausted. The energy fields begin to function irregularly and become unstable.

A lack of strength is a common cause for instability. It affects people who are exhausted and have lost their strength. All aspects of their lives, including their energy field, are unstable. No matter what they do, nothing seems to work out. People who have an unstable energy field – which should not be confused with an unstable life – are very overwhelmed and need help.

How does this affect their behavior? What clues do you notice?

That is difficult to say because everyone behaves differently. Unstable people tend to avoid situations and interactions with others, and they seem withdrawn. They are often afraid of changes or social interactions. They may be afraid of their own thoughts and feelings because they can trigger new waves of instability. They often rely on their avoidance strategies although this contributes to their gradual withdrawal from life.

Do you believe that this has something to do with self-confidence, or rather a lack thereof?

No, not at all. If a person is unstable, their self-confidence does not function anymore. One might say that instability disables a person’s own strength and abilities. They do not work anymore, and the person feels somewhat disoriented. It’s as if they are twirling through space without a sense of direction.

How can stability be restored?

I think it is necessary to consider the severity of the instability. If it is mild, it might be enough to go easy on yourself and give yourself enough time to rest. Time is necessary, and I frequently observe this in my clients. This process might take five to ten years. It might sound harsh, but I am convinced that attempting to rush this process will only result in more frustration. It is important to give yourself enough time if you want to restore your stability. You should not exert too much pressure on yourself because that would only exacerbate your instability.

The most important thing is to not overdo it and to calm down. This will allow you to gradually regain some stability which will allow more and more parts to become stable again. I recommend that anyone who feels very unstable should seek help. It is a difficult process and it is almost impossible to do this on your own.  

What process do you use?

I believe that the energy field repair which is based on energy field mechanics is the best way to support people who are unstable. It is important to stabilize them and to calm the energy fields down so that balance and stability can be restored and in some areas.

After a certain degree of stability is achieved, you can build on this. I recently met with a client who occasionally visits my office in addition to her remote treatment. I have supported her for about six years, and we discussed the progress she has made. She said: “Mr. Brunner, you kept telling me for three and a half years that we need to work on stabilizing me.” I was glad that she was willing to stick with this treatment so that we could experience this journey together.

About 60 percent of her instability has disappeared over the last six years. She feels stable and independent. She recently joked: “Mr. Brunner, if you decide to retire or travel, I will be alright. I feel good and can manage on my own now.” This made me very happy. This really requires a stabilization and rebuilding of the unstable areas. And this takes time.

If I am unstable and decide to work with you, how would I be able to tell if things are improving? What changes should I expect?

This is very difficult if the instability is severe. You will barely notice any changes for a long time because this instability is so overwhelming that small improvements are often overlooked. Imagine that there are 100 unstable areas. The individual will only notice an improvement after a large number of these areas have been stabilized. For example, they might only notice a change after 50 out of 100 areas have been stabilized. The amount and degree of instability is simply too high to become consciously aware of the initial improvements. Positive change will only be noticed after a significant re-stabilization has occurred.

Is there anything we can do in our daily lives to increase our emotional stability?

You can avoid being too dramatic and might try to place less emphasis on things instead. Instability is a result of feeling overwhelmed. If you experience something distressing and allow yourself to be too consumed by it, you will feel even more overwhelmed. This will exacerbate the instability. Trying to take this experience less seriously can calm you down. This is incredibly difficult, and it does not always work. However, even if it only works six out of ten times, it can help you to remain more stable. I believe that it is also important to realize that there is no specific thing you can do that will make you feel stable right away. Unfortunately, this process simply takes time.

Does this have anything to do with having false expectations in certain situations or people? Do people go down a negative spiral whenever their expectations are not met?

Exactly, although there is a difference between a temporary, situational instability and general instability. A person who is overall quite stable will experience a temporary instability in response to being disappointment or having a negative experience. As soon as the situation is over or they have adjusted to it, they can find their way out of this instability and return to a balanced state. However, some people remain in this state of generalized instability, regardless of external influences. This instability simply persists, and it causes them great distress.

Does this deep instability have anything to do with a general lack of trust in oneself?

I would even go a bit further. You not only lack this trust in yourself, but you have ceased to even ask yourself whether you trust in yourself. The instability is so severe that you do not even entertain this thought.

Is this a constant feeling of being overwhelmed?

I imagine standing in an area that is trembling because of an earthquake. Things are falling down all around me, and I do not even get a moment to look around to orient myself. I am too overwhelmed to find a way out. If the earthquake lasted only two or three seconds, I would be afraid. However, it would eventually end, and I would be able to find my way again.

I think that people who are generally stable cannot understand or imagine the dramatic impact the instability can have on a person. It is an invisible struggle. It is tempting to tell someone to “get their act together” or that “things are not that bad”. However, this overwhelms and alienates unstable individuals even more.

What is the most important advice that you would like to give people who feel that this topic applies to them?

I think that it is crucial to give yourself time. Try to become more balanced, even in areas where you feel incredibly unstable. Do not put too much stress on yourself and focus on things that you find calming and relaxing. At the same time, you should be willing to face your instabilities every once in a while. Do not give up and become completely defensive. Try to tackle your instability every once in a while to see if things have improved a little. You might be able to do something today that you were not able to do yesterday. Do not judge yourself. I think these things can help you to restore some stability.

The more severe the degree of instability is, the more likely it is to experience setbacks and disappointments. Accept that setbacks and failure are a normal and inevitable part of this process. Allow yourself to gradually approach your goal and take one step at a time. This will help you to restore stability.

You should celebrate small successes.

Exactly, and these small successes will eventually lead to much bigger successes.
