Burnout — 15 Comments

  1. Hi Mireille
    I’m so glad that I was reminded of the MIR method recently. I was suffering from adrenal fatigue, and although I was doing quite a lot of work on my own energies, as well as getting a lot of rest, nothing was working, and my energy was continuing to decline. It was only when I started doing the MIR method that I started getting better, and the corrections that I was doing started to take effect. Thank you for making this wonderful method freely available!

  2. Hi, I’ve noticed that so many women react although it works great for men as well!
    I discovered your website by chance a few months ago. I was a little skeptical in the beginning but started doing this method anyway. I’ve been doing it for over 5 weeks now and have the feeling that I’ve been involved in a real battle during these 5 weeks. A lot is happening and all the symptoms and side effects you describe have applied to me, particularly being constantly tired and having the feeling that there is cotton in my head.
    I have to add that my life is pretty much turned upside down at the moment regarding work, self-employment, relationship and financial burdens, and can imagine that the impact of this method is therefore larger and perhaps will go on longer.
    Each week things happen, but would these things also happen without this method, that’s what I keep asking myself! And yet, I’m planning to continue with this throughout the whole summer! Or is it wiser to only do it for 4 weeks, or less intensively!
    In any case, thanks. Greetings, Auke

    • Dear Auke,
      Yes, sometimes it’s quite a process! It is best to continue for as long as possible, and as long as you need it. A lot happens to us each day, after all.
      And yes, more and more men are doing the MIR-Method. It is a very gentle method and I can therefore imagine that many women did it at first.
      Good luck!
      Greetings, Mireille Mettes

  3. Dear Mireille,
    I’ve been home for three months now with a burnout. After two months, there was some improvement but many symptoms continued to drag on. Then I started the MIR-Method. Since, my overall situation had improved, I started doing all the steps right away. After four weeks, I can say that all symptoms have disappeared. I finally have some peace in my head. And physically I’m also on top. My relationship with my mother has never been so good and I’ve been able to leave several traumas from my past behind me. I also have a clearly defined mission in mind. Tuesday, I will return to work, part-time so that, starting now, I can also take care of my family. I feel strong enough now to put a limit on my duties at work. My hormone system was completely imbalanced but now I have regular menstrual periods again. Hopefully I’ll be able to get pregnant again quickly . I’ll continue with the MIR-Method for a while because I feel so good doing it. Thank you very much for this method!

  4. I’ve been following the MIR-Method for 5 weeks now and have already benefitted from it so much. I’m much calmer and have the feeling that it’s ok that I’m here. I’m much stronger from the inside out. After my burnout, this is really important! I have the feeling that I’m becoming alive again!

  5. Dear Mireille,
    At the end 2012, I found myself in burnout. My primary care physician prescribed oxazepam and advised me to take anti-depressants. I took the oxazepam 2 times and never started the anti-depressants. I was in such a negative vicious circle but thought, “I got into this myself, I’ll get myself out of it again”. After a lot of reading, I discovered that my thoughts were making my body so ill. At first, I went to a naturopathic doctor. She was able to restore balance to my body, but I noticed that my thoughts often let me down. I started writing affirmative thoughts, saying them aloud to myself, and after a while, I noticed improvement. I found your MIR-Method via Google and have been doing it for the past two weeks. My doubts about myself as mother and partner and my irritation towards others have significantly lessened. I trust that my last obstacles will also disappear. Mireille, I would like to thank you very much for sharing your MIR-Method. I wish you and all your colleagues a wonderful, positive and thankful 2014.

  6. Hallo, Mireille, I’ve been doing the MIR-Method for a few months now. It is addictive. Since the initial nine-week period, I’ve been doing the MIR-Method once and sometimes twice a day. After my burnout at the beginning of last year, joy in life is returning. I took care of other people a lot but forgot to take care of myself and I’ve rediscovered myself. I’m still here for others but now have a STOP for myself. Partially through the MIR-Method, my body is restoring itself again. The most important thing is that I feel like doing fun things again. My heart is open again. Thanks, Mireille.

  7. Hi Mireille
    You’ll never guess, I’m working on clarifying my mission and am getting another job that I am very happy about.
    Just still have some spots on my face.
    Lots of love, Mieke

    • Hi Mieke, when you say spots are you referring to pigmentation spots?
      Many thanks,

  8. A complaint that has disappeared is: a shortage of minerals and basic needs. In the meanwhile, this is the fifth week I’ve been doing it now.
    I’ll keep doing it. I’ve had a serious depression and burnout and many emotional problems. I just feel stronger and this is also apparent physically. Don’t feel as weak, helpless and despondent.

  9. I had a rather difficult operation under anesthesia and medication and still have some leftovers from an old burnout (fatigue). I’ve been doing the MIR-Method for a good week now. The most important gift that I have gotten through doing the MIR-Method is that I am more in touch with my body and love my body more. The escapism from a tired and painful body has been dealt with. I recover more quickly now, am less tired and don’t get tired as easily. My body is back, with (fewer) aches and (less) fatigue.

  10. I received your book this week. I’m starting my fourth week of the MIR-Method. Particularly notable is the surfacing of emotions like fear and grief, especially at night while dreaming or when waking up. I was also tired and irritable in the beginning, now I feel calmer and more balanced. My body energy has once again increased after a burnout. But I am especially pleased about the fact that I don’t have any stomachaches since I’ve been doing the MIR-Method. This is a real relief for me. Otherwise I would have had to go to a doctor. Now I am almost certain that the stomachaches were the result of a period of severe stress. In any case, I am very thankful to you for this method. I feel good doing it. Hearty greeting from Anne-Marie.

  11. Hi Mireille,
    I’ve been doing MIR-Method for a week now and have noticed the following: I’ve got a lot more energy.
    I’m recovering from a burnout and have the feeling now that I’m making progress.
    I’m in training to become a Hand Analyst and Reiki coach (the title “Master” doesn’t apply to me, I prefer “coach”).
    Certainly going to apply it when people want to know how the method works for me, but I’ll finish the four weeks first to collect experiences for myself. I’ve done that with every course up to now: first myself, and then others.
    Have a nice day and kind regards from Barry (52 years old and female. This said because the first name can create confusion :)).

  12. I have had some serious surgery with anaesthetic and medication and I have some left-over fatigue from an old burnout. I have been using the MIR-Method for over a week now. The most important gift it has given me is that I have started feeling more in touch with my body and have started to love my body. I no longer escape my fatigued and painful body by living through my thoughts and rationalisations. I am recuperating much more quickly and am not so quickly tired. My body is totally accepted by me with (disappearing) little pains and (diminished) fatigue.
