Default Question

I know this may get moved but no one is responding in the other forum. Sometimes I get these flashes of color followed by feelings of panic but no pictures. Has anyone experienced this? It started happening after EMDR.

Default Re: Question

Do you recall experiencing the same or similar during the actual EMDR session or only after? Might be a flashback akin to those people get after doing something that alters ordinary brain activity, but the flashbacks are often not clear images or memories, more feelings. EMDR is meant to tap into actual brain processes.

Do they scare you when you see them? In and of themselves, flashes of color don't have any significance IMO. I often have flash visions not only of color but all kinds of pictures when I close my eyes and disconnect from thinking. It's not disturbing to me at all. Actually, I rather enjoy it because images are kind of pretty..To me it's no different from a dream.

But if your mind connects those color flashes to some disturbing thoughts or memories, then it's worth to look into.

They are always accompanied with feelings of panic. Like my brain says oh s*** this isnt good. I fight not to see anything further. My T told me just to ride it out instead of fighting telling myself I am safe now and go to my safe place. I have no time for all of that. They come out of the blue and they are over in seconds.
