How to Use Bilateral Stimulation EMDR Video with my Guided Meditation for Trauma Relief

If you've experienced trauma, you may be looking for ways to find relief and healing. One powerful technique that can help is combining bilateral stimulation with guided meditation. Here, we'll walk you through the steps to set up this process and get the most out of your healing journey.


What You'll Need:

1. A pair of Bose headphones (or any comfortable headphones)

2. A device to watch YouTube videos (computer, tablet, or smartphone)

3. A quiet, comfortable space where you won't be disturbed


Step 1: Set Up Your Environment

Find a quiet, comfortable space where you can sit or lie down without being disturbed. Make sure your device is fully charged or plugged in, and that you have a stable internet connection.


Step 2: Put On Your Headphones

Place your Bose headphones over your ears, making sure they fit comfortably and securely. Adjust the headband and earcups if needed for the best fit.


Step 3: Open Two Browser Tabs

On your device, open your web browser and navigate to YouTube. In one tab, use the guided meditation video above or any one of my helpful videos on my YT Channel. In the second tab, use the EMDR bilateral stimulation video above.


Step 4: Start the EMDR Video

In the tab with the EMDR video, click play. You should see a visual bilateral stimulation, such as a moving light or dot, going back and forth across the screen. Adjust the video settings as needed, such as full screen mode or adjusting the playback speed.


Step 5: Start the Guided Meditation

In the tab with the guided meditation, click play, then right click on the video and select "loop." You should hear the meditation begin playing through your headphones. If needed, adjust the volume to a comfortable level.


Step 6: Focus on the EMDR Video and Guided Meditation

With both videos playing, focus your eyes on the moving visual in the EMDR video. Allow your eyes to follow the movement back and forth across the screen. At the same time, focus your listening attention on the guided meditation playing through your headphones.


Step 7: Follow the Guided Meditation

As you watch the EMDR video, follow along with the guided meditation. The meditation may ask you to focus on specific thoughts, emotions, or body sensations related to your trauma. Allow yourself to fully engage with the meditation, while keeping your eyes focused on the bilateral stimulation.


Step 8: Continue for the Duration of the Videos

Keep watching the EMDR video and listening to the guided meditation for the full duration of both videos. If your mind wanders, gently bring your attention back to the visual stimulation and the words of the meditation.


Step 9: Take Time to Process

When the videos are finished, take a few deep breaths and give yourself a moment to process any emotions or thoughts that came up. You may want to journal about your experience or take some time for self-care activities.


Repeat this process as often as needed as part of your trauma healing journey. Remember, healing is a process and it's important to be patient and kind with yourself. If you find yourself struggling, don't hesitate to reach out for support from a mental health professional.


By combining bilateral stimulation with guided meditation, you can tap into the power of EMDR therapy to process and release trauma. With practice and patience, this technique can be a valuable tool in your healing toolkit.
