Did you know burnout is official?
The World Health Organization has a clear definition of burnout syndrome in the ICD-11 diagnostic manual.
“Burn-out is a syndrome conceptualized as resulting from chronic workplace stress that has not been successfully managed. It is characterized by three dimensions:
- feelings of energy depletion or exhaustion
- increased mental distance from one’s job and/or feelings of negativism or cynicism related to one’s job
- reduced professional efficacy
Burn-out refers specifically to phenomena in the occupational context and should not be applied to describe experiences in other areas of life.”
Have you heard of an ACE score before? It’s a test that places a score on childhood trauma you’ve experienced. People with higher ACE scores have a shorter lifespan, are more prone to illness, and are more easily affected by stress resulting in greater numbers of PTSD.
And I’d bet a higher ACE score relates to burnout as well. Why? Because the patterns and toxic emotions we experience in our childhood matters. It stays with us, until it’s worked on and released.
If you have serious emotional trauma or a mental health diagnosis then it’s appropriate to seek professional treatment. But what if you aren’t in that category? What if you are starting to feel burnout or you’re just not achieving the level professionally that you think you should be achieving? If that’s the case, you’re the perfect person for releasing old emotional patterns using the Emotional Freedom Technique, the Emotion Code or Chakra clearing.
You can find many do-it-yourself tapping sequences online by searching for burnout or anxiety along with tapping or EFT or emotional freedom technique. You can also learn how to do the Emotion Code on yourself simply by reading the book by the same name. But if you’d like someone to take you through these processes, I’d love to help, just reach out to me and let me know what’s going on and I’ll offer my best recommendations with different options you may find helpful.
Burnout is real. And if you find you have a high ACE score, don’t wait another second, your health is literally on the line, look for ways you can deactivate that subconscious ongoing stress response and re-pattern healing thoughts to replace old emotional scars.
And be prepared if you decide to do this work … Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt says that when toxic emotions are released, due to the electromagnetic field properties, that heavy metals and other physical toxins are released from the body at an equal rate. This may result in a day or two of requiring extra rest but with the end results of a full mind and body healing, addressing the root causes of burnout in a holistic way in just a few short sessions. And doesn’t that seem like a sound investment of your time and energy!
