Bringing ourselves back to life

Most of us didn’t have our essential needs met as children and life often felt threatening. When we felt unwelcome, unloved, unheard or unseen, and we were unable to express this, we shut down, stopped breathing or moving freely. In the Resonance Repatterning process, the energy constriction release is like a beautiful piece of ritual theatre, where our younger selves can experience a sense of safety and nurturing. We are supported to breathe into whatever we are feeling, stay embodied, free the flow of our life energy and embrace our innocence. We receive the update that we are not alone anymore, that we now have the support we need and are encouraged to experience the joy of being our true selves, of being natural, free of the fear of rejection or the illusion of separation. This is self love and acceptance.

We all have the same core needs. Many of our problems come from the belief we are alone, disconnected, and our pain is unique to us. We hide in shame and reach for unfulfilling substitutes. We can choose to break this cycle and free ourselves from our prisons of isolation. From my own experience, nothing is worse than the scenarios my fearful mind conjures up. Yet when I have risked intimacy, revealing the aspects of myself I felt most ashamed of, it has often been surprisingly enjoyable.

Rather than repeating our stories, or going through the motions in our relationships, we can create lasting transformation and move beyond blaming and complaining, beyond the old human story of victim, persecutor and rescuer. We can step into the awareness of our interconnection and the freedom of taking responsibility for every choice we make. We can find out what we are unconsciously committed to, and make the necessary changes. These tiny shifts in perspective ripple out and affect the whole.

Life is precious and we matter. When we can relax into being held, dare to breathe and feel whatever arises, let our bodies move and our voices sound, we reclaim our aliveness.

Resonance Repatterning is not the only way to do this, of course, however, it is a powerful, gentle, elegant, creative and playful way.

My Tribute to HR/RR— My Poem- I AM Going, Going, Going…….

 

I wrote this poem shortly after I’d completed one of my HR (Holographic Repatterning, renamed Resonance Repatterning in the 2000s) self-sessions in my home, in late 1999.

It was a moment of a higher level of well-being, vitality, feeling energised, happy, excited, with positive thoughts, that all led me, then and there, to express into words the feelings of my first and only poem so far. I saved the poem and took it out recently.

RR (Resonance Repatterning) points clearly on to our actual work in the process of identifying and transforming our resonance with the negative into the positive. We all tend to resonate with our Problems and do not resonate with our Positive Intentions. Fortunately, we have Resonance Repaterning, an extraordinary  process System, that allow us to transform our negative life patterns into positive ones and so achieve the positive life changes that we want. Resonance Repaterning can help us manifest our well-being, strengths, vitality, our talents (known and unknown), our creativity, and it inspires us for good in ourselves and others.

At the time when I wrote this poem, I was already a                                                    Certified HR practitioner for several years and had experienced many successful self-sessions, and had given and received sessions with others including my colleagues and my clients.  I have continued over the years until the current time doing successful Resonance Repatterning  sessions, as a Certified Resonance Repatterning Practitioner, on myself and others and seen many positive changes for all.

I feel that my creativity to write my Poem was inspired by HR/RR, and feel that I may be surprised to have similar RR inspired creativity for another poem, other writings, or elsewhere in my life.

I feel that anyone who is interested to inspire or promote any of their creativity could benefit from doing RR.

I hope you all enjoy my poem.

Facing the fear of being visible

Earlier this year I was feeling quite frustrated that Resonance Repatterning  wasn’t more valued in the world, sad that so many people could benefit from it and that it was still largely unknown. I decided to stop complaining and instead, see what I could do to change the situation and as ever, this change began within.

I had received an email from the organisers of the Boom Festival in Portugal, which is only offered every two years. I’ve been wanting to go for over a decade and I almost procrastinated again, telling myself I wasn’t good enough yet. Instead, I applied to offer RR there, in the Being Fields, and was overjoyed to be enthusiastically welcomed and accepted.

I leapt at the chance to attend Liz Tobin’s brilliant Stepping into the Spotlight walking our talk event in January. Soon afterwards a friend recommended a free 30 day FB event called Ignite Video Challenge. We were encouraged to record short first take videos and be part of a supportive group, learning skills and giving each other feedback. Another friend had recommended a way to make my own website about a year earlier and once I gave it my full attention, I was able to create one I was delighted with within a couple of hours. It was as easy to use as she’d said. I followed through on my intention to begin offering world peace hologram events, which I’d been wanting to do for years and love, even though I’m far from perfect. I attended Carolyn Winter’s excellent techie tips training in April and I’ve created an online course as a result.

These are all tiny steps towards making Resonance Repatterning more visible and accessible to as many people as possible and it feels so good to have made a solid start. I could easily have continued hiding in fear and feeling helpless about how to share Resonance Repatterning more widely.

I’ve used Resonance Repatterning on myself throughout, shared sessions with peers and felt supported every step of the way. The original intention I came into resonance with was to be confidently making videos, sharing what I love, for the joy of it, unattached to outcomes and feeling free. I’m amazed how quickly this has become my experience. I’m freshly inspired by the power of Resonance Repatterning and deeply appreciative of the transformation it makes possible. I love this elegant body of work with all my heart. Thank you!

“Until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness. Concerning all acts of initiative and creation, there is one elementary truth the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans: that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then providence moves too. All sorts of things occur to help one that would never otherwise have occurred. A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one’s favour all manner of unforeseen incidents, meetings and material assistance which no man could have dreamed would have come his way. Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now.” ― Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

 

 

Living a Purpose Filled Life

One of the main concerns I’ve heard during my twenty five years of working with clients and especially when I had the privilege of talking with elderly people at the end of their life, was whether or not they fulfilled their life’s purpose.

I would ask them what they thought their purpose was. I reminded them that not everyone was going to be an Oprah Winfrey, Deepak Chopra, or Chloe Faith Wordsworth-developer of Resonance Repatterning®, and that their purpose was very unique to them. They did not have to be famous or up on stage, have books and CD’s out, be wealthy, married, or whatever they thought and believed might be a worthy purpose.

I would have them do what I call a life review. Starting in childhood, I would have them name all their accomplishments as well the qualities they embraced as they influenced all the people in their lives. From this inquiry, they would discover on their own, the theme, consistent quality, or way of being that really made a difference for them and the people who they positively affected both personally and professionally. Some of them commented that they were loving, patient, generous, understanding, compassionate, and/or kind-hearted. Others said, “I was a good mother–helpful and supportive.” or “I was a good father–generous and a good provider.” As you can imagine, the list went on and on. I then helped them see that what they accomplished in their lives and the qualities they exuded was their life purpose and that it was enough. Being a loving mother was enough. Being a good provider was enough. Taking a stand for peace and being peaceful was enough. Being light-hearted, humorous, and optimistic was enough! Knowing this opened their hearts, and a sense of peace and calm came over them.  It actually brought them to tears–tears of knowing that they indeed did fulfill their purpose and lived a purpose-filled life!

I would not recommend waiting until the end of your precious life to discover your life‘s purpose. Sit down when you have uninterrupted time. Light a candle if you wish. Fill the room with your favorite scent. Close your eyes, take some slow deep breaths and do your own life review. Start when you were a child. What qualities or attributes did you radiate back then? Then continue by listing your accomplishments as an adult and use them to determine the qualities you’ve used to make a difference in those around you. You will be amazed at what you discover. Keep breathing. Keep writing. You will see a theme emerge. Now, go into the quiet of your inner essence and allow yourself to claim your life’s purpose. You may even experience that you are already living a purpose-filled life!

The power of story telling for healing….

I have sweet memories of reading to my child throughout his younger years. He had his favorite book “Where the Wild Things Are”. It was his number one pick and I had to read it exactly the same way each night. If I was tired and tried to “edit” the text he called me out every time. Why do children get so attached to a story? Why do we adults read and re-read our favorite stories over the years? Because our imagination is activated. Books inspire us and give us hope for a more ideal relationship or family. We long for a happy ending. Life is full of incomplete moments. Our childhoods were filled with unfinished events that we continue to recreate in our adult life in the attempt to get that happy ending.

As practitioners we often pull up a brief story to make a point for our clients to digest. Sometimes from our own life experience. It creates a bond with our client to realize we are all on our journey in life.

It’s important to collect stories so you can pull out the appropriate lesson or ideal. When you tell a story it relaxes your client. Their intuitive, imaginative right brain takes over for that moment and they are no longer thinking. This slows down their brainwaves and allows for deeper healing and integration of the patterns or themes you are working on together. They are experiencing the unfolding of the story and not consciously tracking the “lesson”. This often leads to a “light bulb” moment of deep awareness.

I always associate the power of storytelling with Dr. Wayne Dyer. He was such an inspiring teacher, author and brilliant story teller. One of his PBS specials was about the power of storytelling. He was speaking specifically about how to raise brilliant children. He said if you want smart children read to them. If you want brilliant children read to them even more; make up stories to share with them and encourage them to create their own stories.

Chloe’s new seminars and books “Living In Tune With Your Light”, “Living In Tune With Your Heart” are based on inspiring, deeply moving true stories. The repatternings that accompany them lead to self healing and offer us a unique perspective when life gets tough and we need uplifting.

History has been shared through myths and stories throughout time. A vehicle to share what was going on; teaching us lessons; inspiring us to reach beyond our normal routine and to show us a better way to live.

Stories activate our symbolic, creative, intuitive, imaginative right cerebral hemisphere. This is why we create stories out of everything that happens to us & why we tell family members the story of what we have done that day. We all want to tell our story and we want our story to be heard.

21 QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF ABOUT FACEBOOK   

If you are finding the current demise of Facebook challenging and feeling a bit edgy you are not alone. The lack of regard for our privacy and the data leaks has caused many to experience stresses in their social circles. Perhaps some of your friends have deleted their accounts, or many have just gone dead silent.  A sense of loss may have crept in when the friendly Smart Phone beeps delivering FB alerts has gone from 100 messages to a trickle. Your inner turmoil may be reflecting the addiction we all have to Facebook or the desire to connect.

Every echelon in society had questions for Mark Zuckerberg’s testimony at the USA Congress.  Though we have to rely on powers higher than us to ask those questions, there are plenty we can ask ourselves when arriving at a decision whether to delete our Facebook account or continue.   Consider these questions from a healing and trans-formative point of view:

  • Can you trust Facebook?
  • Can you trust others on Facebook?
  • Can you trust yourself on Facebook?
  • What can’t we trust about ourselves on Facebook?
  • Do I tell the truth?
  • Do I tell others the truth?
  • Do I tell myself the truth?
  • How do I live with the truths I do not like?
  • How do I recognize when I am lying to myself or others?
  • Can I recognize when others are lying?
  • What facts do I want to believe as the truth?
  • What facts do I want to dismiss so that I can dismiss the truth?
  • Can I discern the difference between the truth and a pseudo truth?
  • In the scheme of things, I am insignificant. How can Facebook get anything from me or do anything to me?
  • How does Facebook mirror the lies I tell myself?
  • How do I escape the truth on Facebook?
  • How do I want to live my life?
  • What facts on Facebook do I believe are true? How do I know they are true?
  • What is the truth?
  • Am I enlightened enough (free of pain, non coherent patterns, and past hurts and able to live my truth) to participate on Facebook being the truth of who I am?

Personally, I wish I could say I trust Mark Zuckerberg.  However, I look at his birth process pattern for this company – he took the idea away from someone else and only years later settled with them out of court.  Has his resonance changed much since the inception of the company? My fire chakra is churning and my gut says maybe not. Is it my water chakra addiction to the easy social connection provided by FB that helps me live with it or want to turn a blind eye?   The questions for me keep coming. Where have I refused to see a thief in my life in the past?  Do I want to keep paying the price? Do I respect myself? Is there life after Facebook?

If I continue on Facebook I am aware I am entraining with a corporate field of energy built on the unspoken principle that it is okay to steal or what can we get away with? – principles that seem to still be operating with the inner circle at Facebook given their slow responses and milk toast answers. Is that mirroring something in me?

Corporations like Facebook will continue -it’s too lucrative not to.  Since we are living in a rapidly connected world –it’s  also argued that using the situation as an excuse to step away from social media will cause those who do so to become marginalized.

If we can’t trust ourselves on Facebook  perhaps it is because of our own unconscious patterns that we project onto our news feed.  To continue in a healthy wholesome way means that we need to up our own game of inner enlightenment and action. Specifically we need to ….

  1. Commit ourselves to personal growth and transformation (we like Repatterning work for that!)
  2. Live a life where we tell the truth to ourselves and others and then act with integrity
  3. Commit to being informed and demand transparency of companies like FB. We each need to exercise leadership taking action where we can – write our concerns to government officials for example.

Who knows? By taking a pause and examining our own patterns involved with Facebook participation, we ourselves may evolve to create personal safety anywhere online.  As an added bonus our enlightened perspective and actions may change the FB leadership, and others for the best – creating an even better Facebook environment.

So while there are lots of questions to ask Mark Zuckerberg, we may well turn this opportunity into questioning our own part and how we too may need to change.

With love and light

Book Review: The Power of Eight by Lynne McTaggart

The Power of Eight by Lynne McTaggart: Harnessing the Miraculous Energies of a Small Group to Heal Others, Your Life, and the World

Not long after completing my Resonance Repatterning training 20 years ago, a number of my colleagues and I were inspired to do ‘long distance healing’ sessions for a large group using the Repatterning proxy method. There is a sequence of energy work principles, learned through the training, that leads even the most cynical among us to believe these sessions work and produce positive effects. I personally was thrilled to receive group member feedback on the surprising, unexpected yet delightful shifts that occurred for participants, in my long running annual holiday repatterning for “The Best Holiday Season Ever”. However, one day a man wrote to me asking for proof or research that validates the process.

I was stumped. That was 2002 and I then started to search for answers online.  In my journey I was excited to discover the research work of Elizabeth Targ, an American psychologist and researcher, who received significant funding to study the power of long distance healing and prayer. It was a long term project and I showed up at the half-way mark where exciting early results had been announced. I tried to get in touch with the researcher only to learn to my deep sorrow, that she had died – at the age of 40 only two days earlier.  Her loss was accentuated in that no one else seemed to be doing her type of research into long distance healing – or so I thought.

Among the many condolences online, was one from a woman who mentioned that she was covering Targ’s work in her soon to be published work of nonfiction, called “The Field”.  Within a few days I had her book in hand and was excited to be able to read about the dozens of scientists working on a variety of alternative healing related topics.

The author, Lynne McTaggart, an American journalist, married to a Brit and  living in England, reports on the findings of research into alternative healing and energy work , with several notable books to her credit. From her earliest best-selling nonfiction work in the late 90’s “What Doctors Don’t Tell You”,  she went on to write “The Field”, “The Intention Experiment”, “The Bond” and most recently “The Power of Eight – Harnessing the Miraculous Energies of a Small Group to Heal Others, Your Life, and the World”.

Her curiosity, persistence, and quest for answers brought light to scientists working away at the questions raised in relation to alternative healing. From the dusty basements of many universities and institutions – often closeted away as their work was not considered important – many of these scientists did not know of each other’s research until Lynn McTaggart put them in touch with each other. Lynne is the Agatha Christie of this writing genre, taking the reader through the questions in her mind and those of the scientists – she reveals the answers from the best of the research papers and her own experiments. The reader is left on the edge of their seat throughout this latest book,  as she reveals the evidence and makes a startling conclusion about the intending power of a group.

I was excited to hear about Lynne’s newest book “The Power of Eight” as it promised   to answer my original questions about the group healing work we do as Resonance Repatterning practitioners – either in person and frequently for a group – in absentia or by proxy.

In the Intention experiment, Lynne in collaboration with scientists, set up elaborate controlled experiments, where 500 people in a hotel ball room send thoughts to one of 2 plants in a university lab in Arizona.  All done in real time, the plants with loving attention did  better that the control plant which received nothing. What she ignored was the experience of the intenders of these experiments. The participants tried telling her about their altered experiences and how things have healed in their lives since that time. This finally got her attention and she decided to study and write about it further.

For most healers, and certainly the Repatterning community, we might smile at her naivete in the outset of her journey and rejoice at her arrival to what many healers knew all along.  I am certain her discoveries explain the healing experiences of Repatterning Practitioners and  their clients – especially group participants.  Some of the key points or discoveries she makes relevant to Repatterning work include:

  • Her earlier peace intentions demonstrating that a group intending peace for an area of the world can make a difference
  • participation as part of a group is different that praying on your own and raises the possibility of the miraculous happening.
  • intending for people outside of ourselves, brings back amazing, unintended  results to the intenders; it is as though you as a participant are part of the healing wave.
  • her observation that altruism is a major factor – good healers facilitate from a place of compassion and giving.
  • healing can happen in virtual time. Lynne went from having a controlled experiment  of  everyone focusing on the same thing at the same time to having intenders look at an image in their own virtual time  – it still works.
  • that all you need is a group; in the end the experiments with highly controlled variables were not necessary.

One of my favorite conclusions, that Lynne theorizes near the end of the book, is how she describes what I would say is an experience of our interconnectedness.  She raises the possibility that human consciousness possesses the ability to create a psychic internet –  that we are in touch with anything or anyone by using focused attention to login.

What we do in Repatterning work is so much more than everyone staring at a picture of a seed at the same time to intend and create a shift. We are able to use kinesiology and a map to determine the energy that needs to shift, determine the best starting place for the energy to shift, or that is most ready to shift today. Knowing that anything imputed to a living system can change its energy, we have the tools for determining what would create the most appropriate shift. We know that in our group sessions we can include future participants – the hologram of our session is anticipating them in that quantum space where time is non-linear. Most of all we know that it is an interconnected world and we each have our own clearing to do to create the world that we desire.

I would recommend this book to anyone who would like concrete evidence that the alternative healing work they are considering or receiving works, and why. It will give you insights and inspiration to clear your own energy field for an enriched life. For Repatterning practitioners, this book will validate for you the work you have studied and now facilitate for others. What we understand as ordinary – for the rest of the world is truly extraordinary.

With Love and Light
