Open Minds: Give Back the Pain of your Past with Robert Bleck (October 2016)

Season 6, Episode 49
Available worldwide

Robert Bleck discusses a system he developed, called Source Completion Therapy, which helps his clients to heal deep emotional wounds from their past. He explains that we cannot really be open to all the beauty and magic in our lives until we rid ourselves of the emotional toxins obscuring such wonders. To do that, we must discover the origin of our pains, relive and confront the sources so that we are no longer held hostage by our personal histories. This interview with Regina Meredith was originally webcast October 13, 2016.

Robert T. Bleck, creator of Source Completion Therapy, received his Ph.D. from the University of Florida in 1977. Dr. Bleck is a licensed Mental Health Counselor, certified Clinical Mental Health Counselor and National Certified Counselor. A former professor at a number of universities, he is currently a psychotherapist in private practice. As a writer and an innovator in the field, he has appeared on television and radio shows throughout the country.

Potential Trigger Warning - some of the matters discussed in this interview are of a sensitive nature concerning traumatic events.

Need to view this documentary

The Greatest Story Never Told (6 hrs long) very difficult to watch...truth is sometimes difficult to hear.....and Hellstorm: Genocide of Germany

Nobody mentions that Stalin killed 20 million of his own people or what was done to Dresden after the war......

Real News: Jon Rappoport
Red Ice Radion

I'm tired of hearing the 6 million story over and over.

I was expecting real answers, not a promo rehashing that which I already know.

If you've read my other comments, you know I don't believe in psychotherapy. I did it for years, it never worked. It was talk-based. What did finally work for me was to focus on Spirit, to focus on energy, and to become very aware of intention. It might help some people to have a psychological coach. It never helped me, not in 20 or more years of working with different therapists, I consider it a complete waste of time and money.

We each have free will. When we mature, we have a choice to make. Will I be like my mother? Will I be like my father? Of course, we are hard-wired to be like them. But we have the maturity, the perception to SEE beyond their limitations. Our parents are fallible, human, vulnerable and imperfect.

I grew up with a perfectionist mother and a strict father. She wanted to perfect and clean everything he wanted to protect and discipline. For years, I was the perfectionist too. I am still at least as clean as she was. I am still at least as disciplined as he was. But there is more to life than being clean, striving for discipline and perfection. As humans, NONE of us are perfect. We are all learning how to be. It is this realization, that we're all struggling with the same challenges that finally got me to raise my head up out of my past and live for here now, for today. In truth, in faith and honoring free will--my own and yours, whomever you are.

It is when we run to experts expecting them to feel or think for us, expecting them to fix us, that we give up that free will to another, which can never, ever heal. Only if we see them as equals and only if they treat us as equals can it be a healing and unifying experience, that is my conclusion, my opinion. The danger with all "experts" particularly therapists is they hold themselves up as "more than" the client, when they are no such thing. This leads to a kind of idolatry that cannot work. I find it is also peculiar to American culture, other cultures do have therapists but they do not worship them. Americans seem to.

I am not religious but I am very spiritual. I am non denominational but I am ordained. I do not join, follow, worship or idolize people. I do not look outside of myself for answers. I look to a higher self. That higher self is embodied in the love that created me, the love my parents did have for me and did show me, as imperfectly as they could and did, and to what extent I passed imperfections onto my son (now an adult) I do not know, but he's functioning well and appears to be happy at 21.

I do agree we need to face our own dark side but it is a continuous process, it is not over after a few visits to a headshrink. It is ongoing and requires discipline, intention and exercise of our free will. If anything, we need to work on honoring free will in American and in Western societies. In other cultures, the will of God is inclusive of all there is, there is a kind of automatic recognition that we are all one. While individuals still engage in conflict that divides, we each have in each moment free will to choose unity.

Blessings from Istanbul,

Rev. Abby Jo

I understand what you mean about therapists.
I've had several throughout my life and although I cannot say that it has drastically helped me, some enabled me to get to my own "aha" moments. Therapy is expensive and I agree takes up a lot of time. I think personally it depends on the individual needing it. Some people may benefit from it if they have repressed a lot of feelings throughout their life, or perhaps they have never bothered to explore themselves on a deeper level.

I am from Canada, so I cannot say that we idolize therapists here, but I do believe that a lot of people do need some form of therapy.

I found this interview to be timely and I will certainly be buying the book. I am never disappointed with Regina's interviews and I am thankful that Dr Bleck shared his wisdom with the world.

What a beautiful person, this Robert Bleck. With meditation as a tool, I don't know that one always has to identify and re-live these experiences to overcome them, but it seems clear that one has to resolve them to find peace. I suppose it takes longer with meditation.

There are few one-size- fits - all solutions in life but self acceptance and self forgiveness is necessary to be open to life's lessons, whatever they may be. Robert Bleck shares this knowledge in his therapy and this interview. Understanding ourselves is necessary to this growth and path to happiness and I have personally been witness and experienced this. Sort of the yellow brick road to freedom, courage to learn and grow, and love. We are sensitive beings and this is a confusing and complicated world and the sharing of this 'secret' of how to unblock and free yourself from early trauma is a gold nugget. Thanks to Regina Meredith and Robert Bleck for this interview. It's the real deal.

Love your comments. Right on the mark.

A Successful Client of Source Completion Therapy (SCT)

Source Completion Therapy (SCT) helped me tremendously! I entered therapy as an active bulimic. SCT allowed me to identify a myriad of wounds, cry many tears and confront my unhealthy parents. Now I no longer purge food but approach life with true joy. I feel fortunate to have been part of the SCT process and proud to have reclaimed my inner aliveness. For those interested in SCT, please know Dr. Bleck is the utmost professional. His gentle manor and therapeutic expertise are paramount. If you are touched by this interview and see the need for therapeutic intervention, I hope you chose SCT to begin cleansing your inner wounds. I am a much better human being for it!

Spot on.

I need this book. I've never felt "good enough" or "worthy" and although I know where it comes from, I don't know who to get rid of it.

Deb L, posted on October 17, 2016

I find this information so accurate. I feel that we need to know where to look and how to look in order to deal with problems. When they are deeply suppressed and we don't even know they are there they come bubbling up like molten lava as a clue to look for them.
