In this article, I will list 5 common limiting messages that limit our and our children’s ability to learn and excel. I will then describe a way to free ourselves and our children in order to manifest a happier, more successful life.
Every family has beliefs and rules stored in the family consciousness handed down from generation to generation. We learn these rules very early in life. Even though we may not be consciously aware of these beliefs, we still follow them. Some are beneficial, some are not. Examples of beliefs handed down in my family include: “My children are very beautiful.”—pretty nice. Not so nice– “If I do not serve my husband all the time and make him happy, he will leave me.”
When we honor these rules, even if we are not consciously aware of them, we feel loyal and at peace—no matter what the rule is. When the beliefs limit us, our level of success and enjoyment of life get squelched. We find that we never achieve what we want—because we cannot release ourselves from being loyal to those rules. Here are common 5 limiting beliefs:
Limiting Belief # 1: You are a bad girl or (bad boy).
When a parent or caregiver perceives that a child has done something wrong, they sometimes say “Bad girl.” Or “Bad Boy.” When you think you are bad, you think you are all together bad. People tell a child they are bad in hopes the child will act better. This is not a good way to teach a child to behave. The child, assuming that they are a bad human being, will begin to act that way. The truth is that even when you think you behave badly, you are still a good human being.
Limiting Belief #2: There must be a husband and a wife in the family to raise a healthy child.
We have been taught that children are happier when they have a father and a mother. The truth is that a child can be happy with one parent, with two fathers or two mothers—whether a boy or a girl. All that matters is that we have good parents and a good environment where we feel safe, secure, and where we feel loved.
Limiting Belief # 3: A mother has to stay at home to care for the child.
Some people say that when a mother works and leaves a child with another person, the child will have more problems and feel abandoned by their mother. The truth is whether at home or not, a good parent gives their child a feeling of being beautiful, loved, and valued. What matters is that the child feels beautiful, loved, cared for and nurtured. Whether the parents are at home or not does not matter. That said, it is important that the care giver has the same attitude of valuing the child—not just a babysitter who watches TV.
Limiting Belief #4: Children have to be punished to learn right from wrong.
Spare the rod—spoil the child, the saying goes. Children are sometimes hit, spanked, humiliated or yelled at when they are seen as behaving badly. Punishment does not help children learn. Rather it teaches them to behave badly, to be bullies, tyrants, and to behave in violent, abusive ways. There are only a few instances when force needs to be used—such as when the child is in danger. For those times that force was used upon you, acknowledge that you were an innocent child. Free yourself of that burden of guilt, and without judgment, leave the responsibility to whom it belongs.
Limiting Belief # 5: You have to be a good parent all the time, otherwise you will have bad children.
No one behaves perfectly all the time. When you behave badly to your child, your spouse, or anyone else, say, “I am sorry. I behaved badly.” It can be a huge relief for children to hear, “See—Mommies and Daddies make mistakes.”
Here is a visualization that can help to free ourselves of these detrimental beliefs and patterns: Visualize the family members/care givers from whom you took these beliefs. Say to the them, “I took these beliefs from you but I don’t want them anymore. Please see me with love as I give them back to you.” Visualize these feelings gently returning from you to your elders and your elders lovingly receiving them. Know that your elders are happy to receive them. They know that these false beliefs are not good for you and that once you let go of these beliefs, they can be passed on to wherever they belong.

Developing good habits is the basis of personal growth and development. We all know that. We also know that handwriting tells volumes about who the writer is. Therefore, by developing the habit of writing in an empowering way, we have the power to shape our lives. When I heard about Vimala Rodgers’ kit, Transform Your Life Through Handwriting, the process seemed like a perfect way to communicate with my subconscious, and I immediately bought it.
Vimala recommends practicing forming letters in the new, empowering way daily. She confidently affirms that your life will experience miracles while using this program. Vimala states that each of the letters holds within them, a rich depth of spiritual essence. For each letter, she describes its nature and how to inscribe it.
The letter “O,” for example, “ generates compassion, kindness and understanding. To write it, start at the top and make a circle in a clockwise direction, uncluttered with no loops or hooks.” Keep it simple. Because we write from a left to right direction, the right is about the future and reaching out toward others. When we form the letter “O” in a counterclockwise direction, we are unconsciously looking in the direction of the past, toward the facts, with little consideration at how the listener might feel. When we inscribe the letter in a clockwise direction, we are better able to see the beauty, the truth, and the gifts that lie beyond the mere facts. I mention this letter in particular because as a teacher and a counselor, inscribing the letter “O” simply and in a clockwise direction has enabled me to more strongly love, to see clearly, and to truly understand those with whom I work.
How handwriting has helped me:
Vimala states that miracles will happen if one practices writing letters as she describes. It has been over 40 days since I have been practicing my Vimala Rodgers alphabet. I would like to tell you of my miracles. Maybe these miracles would have happened without this practice, but just the same, I plan to continue this practice. First of all, when I practice my handwriting, it seems as if my mind is expanding, and I feel happier. During these 40 days, I bought new clothes–bright, happy, comfortable clothes. I threw out clothing that did not suit me any more. I started wearing makeup daily. I began getting weekly massages. I became more serious about my food choices, avoiding wheat and dairy products. I consulted an interior designer and am in the process of updating my home and office furnishings.
In other words, my level of self-care has been amped up. People are telling me that I look pretty, they are treating me with higher respect. And–icing on the cake– a friend introduced me to a an attractive, interesting man.
How I have used handwriting with my clients:
Look at first letter of a client’s name: Vimala states that the first letter of one’s first name holds your greatest gift and greatest struggles. If a client is stuck, I have started noticing how the quality of the letter that person’s first name might assist them in some way. For example, as a speech pathologist, I was teaching smart, sensitive five-year-old Ally how to say the “S” sound. (The letter “A” has the quality of Spiritual stardom, transforming ego into Spirit.) After a halfhearted attempt, Ally said, “I can’t.” There was no convincing her otherwise. I paused, then changed the subject. I asked her, “Would you like to learn how to make a star “A?” The letter “A” is the only letter in the alphabet that can be made like a star. Your name starts with an “A,” so that makes you a star, too.” She was very interested in forming this star “A.” After tracing the letter “A” several times, we went back to attempting the “S” sound. Miracle: She could say it! Even bigger miracle: She temporarily lost the ability to say it, but she continued to practice this new way of saying “S.”
By practicing writing the letters ourselves, we make an effect on our clients. One day I was assigned to go new a school to do speech therapy for a new student. However, the teacher only wanted me to observe. I felt angry and felt I was prevented from making a difference in this child’s life. While at that school, observing that child, I remembered the energy of the letter “e” that is about tolerance, and its declaration of intent is “I may be wrong”–very powerful words! The energy of that letter softened my heart. I realized that I could benefit by simply observing this shy child. When I left, I gave the teacher suggestions as to how to support his improved speech. In hindsight, this child felt very insecure about his speech and would succeed more quickly by working with his familiar and loved teacher. Thank you letter “E!”
We can encourage clients to practice writing as homework. One of my clients was in a panic. Her husband wanted a divorce and her two best friends were near death. What could I do to support her through such horrendous experiences? I suggested that she buy Vimala’s handwriting kit. She bought that kit, and this is what she said about her experience after practicing the program for 40 days:
Overall, I’ve become much more calm and grounded, happy, stable, joyful and grateful, and reasonable. My mind is clearer, making my life clearer.
I’ve realized I am happy with or without J–I don’t have the desperate feeling (as much) of thinking of us not being together. My happiness depends on MYSELF. I realized I cannot to look to others for my own happiness.
Remember those lobster boats that used to start sometimes at 4:30 AM and run their engines for 8+ hours, making me want to jump out of my skin?? Well, so far this summer, it’s been at least half as much, and the noise doesn’t bother me nearly as much as it used to… give up the need to control, huh… I think this has been my biggest problem, and my 40 days of “M” ends on Thursday.
Yesterday I drove myself to the beach, alone, and walked on the sand. I can’t remember the last time I went alone–the parking lot there makes me nervous about needing to back up when I leave (it’s from the PTSD – fear of driving), and it was no problem for me.
On Friday, I got dressed in two different cute outfits and went out twice, alone, and actually enjoyed driving.“M” again–“I am at ease in all situations,” and I’ve been writing, “I am at ease driving.” Guess what?–(surprise, surprise!) I really was at ease.
This simple, inexpensive process can open the door to a happy life. I knew it would make a difference in my life as soon as I heard about it. If it resonates with you, I suggest you consider picking up your pen and start writing.

I enjoy books which are presented in a form that can be turned around into a Resonance Repatterning® process. Therefore, I was delighted to discover the book The Greatest Secret of All, by Marc Allen. Marc Allen sets out to identify core beliefs (that can be changed) and conversely core affirmations—that can create.
The core belief process consists of identifying the answers to the following eight questions:
1. What is the problem? That one we know.
2. What are you feeling physically? Marc states that our negative emotions lie lower in the body than love, which resides in our heart.
3. What are you feeling emotionally? At the bottom of all those feelings lies fear.
4. What am I telling myself repeatedly? With this question we get an opportunity to look at the negative statements we repeatedly tell ourselves rather than being their victim.
5. What’s the worst that could happen? And then–what’s the very worst that could happen? In other words, what is behind all these fears? We often try to hide our worst fears from ourselves. This question allows the worst to show up. It is often something that actually could not happen.
6. What’s the best thing that could happen? Inevitably the best thing that can happen is much more challenging for us to connect to than the fear. We have been telling our worst scenario and rarely do we visit our ideal scenario.
7. What’s preventing that best-case scenario from happening? Whatever thoughts float up are your deep underlying beliefs. Those thoughts are the ‘I am of no value’ type.
8. What affirmation completely contradicts that belief? That core affirmation is what can create what we desire.
Marc states in his book that you don’t have to believe the positive statements; he says you just have to identify them. He said that he personally prefers “I am creating___” statements over “I have___” statements. He explains that “I am creating_____” statements are easier for the subconscious mind to acknowledge.
Marc summarizes the process as: Dare to dream and make a plan.
And finally, Marc describes “greatest secret of all” as becoming our own teacher and trusting our inner guidance, being the master within. The greatest secret is about loving and serving yourself and others. He states that one must become fulfilled before you can help others be fulfilled. One must serve oneself before one can serve others.
As I said, this formula can easily be used as a delightful repatterning. Try it. You will like it.

Magui Block knows how to support people in transforming their relationships very well. When I heard that she is creating a new relationships workshop, I wanted to hear more.
Sally: You are the author of two excellent Resonance Repatterning® workshops—one called Healing the Family and one called Healing the Family Systems and Healing the Systems—Family, Groups, and Organizations. What is the next workshop that you are developing?
Magui: My next workshop will address intimate relationships– one with one relationships. It is more for couple relationships, but it can be beneficial for any other intimate relationship such as parent/child or siblings; boss/employee relationships, close friends.
I want many people to attend. I want to do it outside of the Resonance Repatterning umbrella, so everybody can attend, not only Resonante Repatterning practitioners. Chloe, who has always supported and guided my work, likes the idea and is close to me in this project.
There will be two manuals—one for Resonance Repatterning participants and one for people who are not trained to do Resonance Repatterning. Participants who are not Resonance Repatterning Practitioners can learn the work through another, more simple system—another pathway. They will still be able to identify non-coherent patters, identify the issues that hold the non-coherence in place and identify the modality. They can do the same process without needing to use muscle checking.
I hope that this approach will help increase the number of students studying Resonance Repatterning. By taking this workshop, they will feel motivated to take additional courses.
Some of the chapters of this new workbook include:
How Families of Origin affect the Dynamics of the Couple
How to Attract and Manifest an Intimate Relationship
The Dynamics of Male/Female Interactions
Setting Limits in Relationships
Ending a Relationship
In this manual, I address why there are more divorces now. I address how to manage power in a relationship such as in relationship to money and control. And finally, I address what happens when one member of a couple grows and moves in life and that threatens the couple staying together.
Sally: When is this workshop first going to be taught?
The first workshop will be held in Spain in late November—in Spanish.
Participants will include couples and singles, Resonance Repatterning Practitioners and people who are not repatterners, psychologists and social workers, etc. They will learn the tools. I won’t teach them the skills of how to help others heal. If they have those skills, they can use this tool in their practice. If not, they will be able to use this tool for themselves.
Sally: Will you be using Bert Hellinger approaches again in this workshop?
Magui: I use his principles a little when teaching “dynamics of the soul”. But primarily I am using other approaches. I am presenting what I have seen to work with my clients who are addressing couples issues.
The work is very serious, but I address it in a light way. I use stories and case histories. The way the manual is written is designed to heal. I meditated and received inner guidance. This workshop is very different than what I have presented in the past. It is simpler.
Sally: When doing modalities, do you recommend that the practitioner follow the instructions from the book exactly as they are written, or do you recommend that they change the processes as they feel appropriate?
Magui: If a practitioner is connected with spirit, with their wisdom, the modality goes well. If not connected with spirit, the energy is denser and there is more suffering. This work must touch your spirit.
For example, with the modalities for trauma: It’s not the trauma, but the trauma’s energy that gets stuck. Let that energy do what ever it needs to be doing. What does the energy need to do? The described modalities are only one way to heal. If the given modality gives you a different idea, it is recommendable to do that different process. The suggestions in the book can be used to take a different direction.
Do the work with the heart, not the head. The modalities are a limitation in a way. We have many more tools. When a client is having an experience, the modalities are only ideas of how to address the experience. Maybe the client has other ideas.
….It is beneficial to take workshops many times. When you see a lot of different scenarios, your learning and grasp of the process will become deeper.
Sally: Do you have specific goals for this workshop?
Magui: The books are design to support transformation, to avoid repeating old patterns, and to create new coherent patterns.
When we get triggered by our old patterns, we get to see how our old patterns are in relationship to us. How do we develop the ability to not repeat these old patterns? First we identify our patterns and then we go on to our relationship patterns. We address what triggers us. What ever triggers us shows how we are in relationships and this reflects how we relate to ourselves.
In one of the chapters, for example, I address that people are often alone, not by conscious choice, but are afraid to be with someone. They do not want to open their hearts—but that decision happens on an unconscious level. They are choosing by not choosing. They are losing time, love and experiences.
Then there are others who have relationships, but do not open up, they stay safe. They do not have a sense of community. They can’t open to someone, can’t open to others. They stay stuck in unhealthy relationships. They don’t finish with the relationship because they are afraid.
In this workshop, and in the book, I talk in a way that is light, very light. That is the way I teach. Not heavy. The issues are heavy, but the presentation is light and the healing is with love.
I am hoping to present Resonance Repatterning in a way that will help Resonance Repatterning will grow. I hope to find ways to make it attractive to more people.
Sally: Thank you Magui for all you have done for Resonance Repatterning. I look forward to taking this new workshop.

The newly revised Resonance Repattering® books–up to Transforming Chakra Patterns–are now on sale at the Resonance Repatterning/eStore website. The Journal Committee wanted to find out what’s different about these books and so we called Chloe Wordsworth, author of these books and the Founder of Resonance Repatterning to find out.
Sally: In the beginning, when you began doing this work, what inspired you to write the Resonance Repatterning books?
Chloe: By 1990 I had spent 20 years studying many different healing systems, including the Five Elements system of Acupuncture. Although I had a successful private practice as an Acupuncture practitioner for eight years (meaning that I loved the results I saw), I was still constantly searching for yet more and better ways to help my clients. I was pretty driven–never satisfied! This had lead me to study all kinds of modalities—Polarity Therapy, Edu-K, nutrition, Feldenkrais and much more–always searching for the underlying cause of people’s problems; what was the panacea that would help people create the change so they would feel better?
What inspired me to create Resonance Repatterning, that is to put together a whole different system from anything I had studied, practiced and taught, was my realization that healing modalities in themselves were not enough. In my practice, from 1972 onward, I had observed that people were driven by repetitive patterns. By 1989 I began to experiment with identifying these patterns and using healing modalities to transform resonance with them.
My clients were fascinated with what I was doing and felt beneficial results, so in about 1991 they began asking me to teach them what I was doing. This meant I had to write something down, because everything I did was in my head. I worked with my clients in the moment, muscle checking everything they needed from my own internal data base. Nothing was written down!
So I wrote a one page synopsis of everything the new students might need–now we have ten books! After that I wrote out the four “Repatternings” for changing our attitudes and beliefs: these were the pre-cursors to the four Repatternings we learn in the Fundamentals seminars. Actually, one of them was called the Umbilical Repatterning, which I later realized was a muscle check rather than a Repatterning! The more people wanted to learn, the more information I wrote down to meet their need. At the same time I was still developing the work in my full-time practice. So everything I wrote down was in a constant state of flux, changing from week to week. For me this was a time of ferment: thinking, creating, talking to friends and family, reading, analyzing, doing sessions on myself over and over, and on clients too. So from the first class, which had a handout of one page, we went to the next class, which received two pages, and bit by bit over the years the books were written and revised.
Sally: Tell me about your relationship to creating the books.
Chloe: Relationship? Well, as we know, everything is energy or frequency wave patterns that influence everyone else’s frequencies–synchronizing with our frequencies or out of sync with our frequencies. If we say the word “yes,” it strengthens our muscle response and brings our frequencies into sync a little. If we say the word “no” our muscle response weakens and our frequencies go out of sync a little (or a lot!). So in all relationships, we either have a strengthening effect or a weakening effect: we either help people’s frequencies come into sync, or, if they resonate at a certain level with us, our frequencies go out of sync when we are with that person.
We influence and are influenced by others for better or for worse, depending on what we resonate with. So my relationship to creating the books means that I have a responsibility to be coherent and that the system supports people in synchronizing their frequencies to support their self-healing and self-transformation. This means that how I am, my state of coherence as I write the Resonance Repatterning books, is important. That energy is there. This is true whether I am writing a book, or inserting corrections at 2 a.m. My attitude is important: if you love what you do; if you are grateful; if you want to be guided by the highest values, it has an effect. This is why I come from intention before I write or do anything, so the books will have a positive energetic effect upon the reader.
Sally: That is why I would come to one of your workshops, even if you were teaching how to wash dishes!
Chloe: That’s nice! It’s true, whatever we do, however small and seemingly unimportant, the inner attitude we resonate with develops our character and the values we live by and hopefully has a positive influence on our world. It’s the same with teaching: I believe that if I am coherent when I teach, the students, and me, too, will receive what we need from the field of limitless possibilities–a new awareness that is life-changing, a healing of an old wound, new learnings, new ways of seeing, the Aha! that changes our understanding. Without coherence and love, transformation doesn’t happen. This is why we must constantly do our own personal development work–none of us is complete!
This is our relationship to the work. For me, it meant doing the Repatternings on myself over and over as I developed them, and improved them, and transforming my own patterns when life problems arose. Then I would do repatterning sessions with other people, which helped me enliven the work more. Demonstrating them on students in the seminars helped me identify additional improvements. I had to think, feel and practice before any of the repatternings could move to their “final” completion point. It’s all very organic!
Sally: What makes these present books different from the previous books?
Chloe: I just got an e-mail regarding the Primary Patterns book. The practitioner wrote, “The new books are great! I love them!” To give you a few more details:
In the Orientation Section of the Process Guide(Rainbow Book) and the Primary Patterns book, I added an orientation to “the point of choice”. Self-healing begins when we choose healing. The Point of Choice is different from Intention.Point of Choice motivates us to achieve and manifest our intentions. Life offers us a constant wobble—between order and disorder. The Point of Choice is the edge between stability and instability–a place of huge creative potential. The Point of Choice is about going for this creative potential, rather than being stuck in the disorder and instability of our problems and our unmanifested intentions.
The Point of Choice is an opportunity to realign ourselves with our deepest values and priorities. It is how our mind, body and energy become vehicles of consciousness.
Also in the Orientation section of the Rainbow Book, we address “resonating with trust and love.” To really be oriented we need to orient to feeling loved. If we do not have basic orientations to trust and love, how can we heal?
In the “Problems” section of the Process Guide and in the Primary Patterns book, we go deeply into the fear that underlies the problem. Under any problem is a fear and our belief that our fears are true. This belief we resonate with holds us back.
In the “Problems Into Opportunities” section of the Rainbow Book, we have a section to identify the negative attitude. Underlying every problem is a negative attitude, which makes extraordinary change impossible. This is the triangle of the perpetrator, who blames and complains; the victim, who feels helpless; and the savior, who feels it is their responsibility to save the person or situation, or come up with a solution. I’ve listed specifics for each of these negative attitude states so we can quickly move out of these patterns (and switching from one to the other in a few minutes) and take personal responsibility for the fact that all our problems reflect an aspect of our own state of mind.
I have also clarified the Intention for a New Possibility Section. The Headings include:
The Intention for a New Possibility (What we want to do or achieve.), whether by choice, from the list or a Daily Empowerment Intentions.
The second section is what motivates action toward the achievement of our intentions (including the point of choice, the positive feeling our intentions give us, the underlying need our intentions fulfill for us, and our life vision that motivates all our daily intentions.)
The third section identifies the resources we need in order to manifest our intentions, and the various aspects of this section.
And finally, every Intention takes Commitment. The fourth section supports our resonance with this.
All of these new inputs makes the “Intentions” section more powerful and clear.
Sally: And what about the new Transforming Unconscious Patterns (TUPs) book?
The new TUPs book goes deeper into the brain and the power of our brain. For instance, the brain has 100 billion nerve cells which are connected to other nerve cells or neurons. Brain researchers have estimated that there are more nerve connections in the human brain than there are stars in the Universe! Talk about potential! So this book is about supporting this massive potential within us. I am also seeing how the neuroanatomy of the brain relates to the on/off muscle response used in Resonance Repatterning. Quite exciting!
In the TUPs book I go into the seven major neurotransmitter-peptide-endorphins that are needed for optimal body/brain functioning, listing the qualities we need to resonate with.
With respect to self-help modalities and positive actions, there is a list of thirty or more activities proven to support neurotransmitter production and keeping our brain youthful and flexible. For example, something as simple as sleep— that less than seven hours has been shown to lower brain function; and people low in essential fatty acids are at higher risk for ADD, depression, Alzheimer’s, suicidal attempts, and obesity. This section includes information regarding how people can get what they need naturally, through correct eating plus details on what supports brain functioning: for instance, the herb sage has an A-level rating for the highest possible scientific evidence that it enhances memory! That’s amazing! TUPs has lots of important and practical information on what creates positive change of resonance via our brain.
TUPs also goes deeply into the power of forgiveness.
Sally: How do you define “forgiveness”.
Chloe: You know, forgiveness is such a huge subject. Perhaps we can do another interview on that so we can focus more deeply on the power of forgiveness as the ultimate healer. But for now, in the TUPs book we get to identify certain overactive parts of the brain that may be making forgiveness difficult.
Another new aspect in all the books is that I give an overview of each repatterning. If a student or practitioner is short on time, they can glance through the A.B.C. overview of the repatterning in its introduction, and quickly see the sections they want or need to cover.
Sally: And what about the Chakra Patterns book–that, too, is the completed version?
Chloe: Yes it is. In the Transforming Chakra Patterns book, everything has been revised and improved! The Sound Frequency Repatterning is so much easier–and of course, these books are all edited.
There is one thing I am sorry about and that is the page numbers! As we are still working with various versions of the books, you will find inconsistencies with the page numbers. We hope to correct this as soon as possible. In the meantime, here and there you will need to insert your own correct page numbers!
The Rainbow Book is also completely revised. In the Repatterning section we now list of all the Repatternings from the Living In Tune web radio program as quite a lot of students and practitioners are using them. I have divided these twenty-five Repatternings into three sections: eight Repatternings for Personal Coherence, eleven for Achieving the Best of Who You Are and six Repatternings for One-on-one and Group Relationships.
Sally: If someone is interested in acquiring the Living In Tune repatternings that you wrote for your radio programs, how can they get them?
Chloe: At this time, anyone can download them from the Resonance Repatterning website/downloads. In the future, I will edit and update all the transcripts and create a book out of the twenty-five Repatternings, based on the above three categories.
Sally: Is there anything else you can think of that has been updated?
Chloe: An important change is in the Underlying Needs section of the Process Guide. In place of the list of Life Needs and Spirit Level needs, I identified five major categories of needs. Each category has a list of nine to twenty specific needs in it. The five categories include:
1. The need for security, nurturance and love.
2. The need for health and energy.
3. The need to achieve your best, go beyond your limits and manifest your potential.
4. The need for love, respect and happiness in relationship.
5. The need for purpose, meaning, spiritual happiness and love from within.
The Process guide has been totally changed and is much easier to follow. The front cover looks much like the previous version with the mandala, but the back cover now has the Coherence Continuum, which illlustrates the most fundamental concept of Resonance Repatterning.
Sally: Yes, I agree. In examining the Process Guide, as well as the various books, the material is much clearer and goes to greater depth.
Sally: Another question people ask is about the “subtle levels” that you refer to in your books.
Chloe: There are twelve subtle levels, which represent frequencies that exist at the subtle level of the energy field– perhaps some ancient generational pattern we still resonate with but don’t need to identify more specifically, or for those who believe in past lives, they could be seen as some non-coherent frequency still held in the subtle field from the past, again, that doesn’t need to be identified, that is having a negative impact on the present.
Sally: Tell me about the books that have not, to this date, been revised.
Chloe: All of the remaining books are on the verge of being complete. That said, the final editing always takes more time than we realize! I will be working on the Modalities book in November and December, but then it needs a very careful final edit, and probably some re-writing. This Modalities book will be available to the general public, so they can use these modalities in their daily life. I’ll also be working on the Five Elements and Meridian book this October, November and December. The Visions and the Energetics of Relationships books are waiting their final editing. One book at a time. The exciting Inner Cultivation book, which now includes some phenomenal information from the bio-physicist Fritz-Albert Popp and Russian research teams on light, is also in its process of completion. So people who attend these seminars get the most up-to-date version, but without its final editing process.
Sally: Thank you very much, Chloe, for this interview. I greatly appreciate being given this overview. What you have said helps me see the new books in a new light and in particular those sections that you described. I wish you the best with your classes.
Chloe: Thank you Sally. It’s great being able to bring people up to date in this way.

“My name is _____.” There is energy to your name, which deeply effects who you are. If you don’t believe it, imagine how you would feel about yourself if your name was “Pickle”, “Beth”, or “Renaldo’? Would Marilyn Monroe have been considered as sensuous and sexy with the name Norma Jeane Mortenson? Indra Nooyi is CEO and Chairman of PepsiCo and is often identified as the most powerful woman of the world. How could you not take someone seriously with a name like Indra, meaning “Lord of the Heaven”!
Here is a story of what happened when Resonance Repatterning® Practitioner and teacher Carin Block decided to change her name to Magui Block.
Sally: How is it that you decided to change your name?
My mother gave me a birthday gift of a numerology session. The numerologist stated that my name did not fit me. But I could not figure out what to change my name to. Shortly after that session, I went to a supermarket and my money was stolen. I saw it happen and I could not do anything about it.
I clearly saw that the name “Carin Block” resonated with being a victim—that that name attracts bad things. I had worked those non-coherent patterns with Resonance Repatterning and constellations, and I saw by listening to my name many times every day that “Carin” was creating a negative impact. I loved that name, I was used to that name, and everybody knew me as Carin Block. I had a career with that name. How could I change it?
It was a jump, an opportunity to leave behind old patterns, so I did it. I was afraid and at the same time my heart felt lighter.
I decided to use Magui, that is the nickname of Margarita, my second name.
“Magui” is like magic and I want to do magical tools that heal with grace. It is aligned with my vision.
Sally: How has your life changed since your name has changed?
Magui: Before I changed my name, I was stuck in my writing and after I changed my name, I wrote a new book and a new workshop. After I changed my name, I found out about a government agency that supports small business, to help businesses grow. I am now in training to create my business. I am required to give a frank look at how to run a business. For example, I am learning how to handle employees. I have created a brand name—my name is my brand name. I am creating a new logo. I got in contact with my vision as a business. I am learning how to teach and create in a different way. I do not want to repeat the same mistakes. I want to make it better and I feel different, stronger.
Sally: How did Resonance Repatterning help you in your process of changing your name?
Magui: Resonance Repatterning has helped me all through the process of changing my name: making the “right” choices, managing the fear, leaving the old behind and all that triggers a big change like this. It is to leave an “old” way of being and welcoming a new one. Resonance Repatterning helps to do just that: quantum leaps.
Recently I made a mistake in my schedule. I scheduled two people at the same time. The client that left without a session was the last client I would have wanted to do this to. She is eight years old, does not talk. She is beautiful and absolutely fascinating. I feel so honored to get to work with her.
I felt devastated and frozen in fear. What if her family is so angry they do not want to come back? I was so angry at myself! What if all of my clients get angry at me and never want to see me again? What if I lose my credentials to do this work? What if I lose my house and the only place I have to live is in a culvert? What would my mother and father say, think of me?
You can see where this was going. My fear and shame was going stronger and stronger. Everything we think has a vibration. If we repeat a thought coupled with strong emotions—for better or worse—those thoughts take on a form, a vibration. Sure enough, the next day, several of my clients did not show up. Things were definitely headed in the exact direction that I feared. My mind was manifesting my thoughts very rapidly.
So many people are having problems now. We are manifesting what we think faster than ever before. My trauma is small potatoes compared to what others are experiencing.
It is my opinion that at this point in our human evaluation everyone knows that things are changing. In fact, two things are happening: First, we are now living in a time in which—at a faster and faster rate, our negative thoughts are creating our experiences in our world. Of course, at the same time our positive thoughts are doing the same. And second, we humans are changing our unique vibrational patterns. We are in a process of changing from being in the dead end a mode of “survival of the fittest” to a glorious mode of “sharing to survive.” Instead of taking from others, instead of priding ourselves on what is ours and those who are of our group, we are developing the qualities of tolerance, honesty, cooperation. More and more of us understand that for us to survive and thrive on this planet, we must share what we have with others. This transformation will occur over the next ten years until only a very few of us will be in the first group.
Each of us are very much like snowflakes, we each have a very unique vibratory pattern. We each have a very unique piece of the gigantic puzzle that is necessary to create our new Planet Earth. The tsunamis, volcanic eruptions, and floods are all a part of the Earth shifting into this new way of being. Just as we humans are shifting, the crumbling of institutions and wars are a transitionary phase of our shift. Every creature on the planet; and Earth Herself is shifting. Our Mother Earth is going through birth pangs in the process of creating this New Earth. Humanity is going through birth pangs as we create a new race of humankind.
You and I are shifting. And this shift is going to happen to everyone sooner or later. Sometimes we think we are doing something wrong. Maybe, for example, there is something I am very good at and do all the time. I know how to do it. Then all of a sudden, it’s not working any more. I am not achieving the same results. The challenge can come when I judge and blame myself. Self-doubt can sap the energy that I have for going from one level to the next.
What is happening? The Earth is making changes in order to provide space for humanity to change. Because Earth and everyone on it is changing, things that worked in the past just don’t work any more. People are loosing their jobs, moving, relationships are changing. It may be very painful, but things just don’t work anymore.
We all knew this was going to happen. But the time is now and we are here. This is not something to worry about. No! It is something to be happy about–even though it is difficult to remember when tragedy and stresses happen.
So what can we do while going through this transformation that we are now experiencing?
We can be gentle and loving toward ourselves. What seems to be big mistakes could possibly simple be our adjusting to changes—just as is happening with our Earth. When we appear to be making mistakes, it could be that things happen for a purpose. Take my beautiful client who’s appointment I missed—she, too is going through huge changes. She has just changed to a new school that is 45 minutes away from her home. She feels overwhelmed and over stimulated. Perhaps giving her a break, a much needed break, from our work together was unconsciously mutually agreed upon to give her what she needed most—rest.
Sometimes we mean to give out one signal and others understand something else. As we adjust to the changes around us, it is very helpful to share with others—with our words—our fears and difficulties we are experiencing.
If you have a talent, if you have found a technique that works really well, share it. Why? It’s not because everyone is in such a bad place, but because we have evolved. Have you noticed that in the past, time after time, you have struggled and were not heard? You were not able to get your message out, because people did not have a high enough vibration to listen or understand. Now you are here and you have something to say and you have something to do that will make a difference. Now is the time for the longed for miracles to happen in your life. You can now manifest what you have always dreamed of—even if you don’t know exactly what it is.
In summary, treat yourself and others with great respect. Support others on the path and get help for yourself when you need it. This is a wonder planet we live on and it is a most joyous time to be alive.
Resonance Repatterning Practitioners are in the business of supporting life changes. We tap into the unconscious minds to identify the core issues, what is holding those issues in place and then we, again, using the unconscious minds, identify how to release those stuck issues that are now understood.
We glean from books the exact right pieces of information that is needed to use to support our clients. I have found that we don’t need to refer to the Resonance Repatterning books; we can use other books. Books that list possible problems and then list solutions work very well in the Resonance Repatterning paradigm.
The Power of Luck is a book that fits in that formula. It uses signs that occur in life, humor, stories—such as earlier experiences and fairy tales–and imagination to identify and release the core issue.
The authors call themselves magicians. We are magicians, too. Their mentors are skilled shape-shifters, including Lewis Carrol, Richard Bach and Carlos Castaneda.
Of course, you will need to read the book yourself to fully grasp their techniques; however, I would like to give you a taste of their approach. They ask us to imagine that we really are immortal magicians who have created this world to just amuse ourselves. In the first section of the book there are chapters describing strategies to identify the root issue and to change it around. One is called renaming. For example, a woman went shopping to choose a nightstand to match her furniture. She and her friend drove all over the town, but could not find an acceptable piece anywhere. She decided to re-name herself to help free her self of this confusion. She immediately noticed a sign advertising: “You know everything will happen in time.” She gave herself the name: “I am that which you know will happen in time!” She saw a sign at the Department of Motor Vehicles: “Every child on the road is your own!” She became “I am someone else’s child who’s never on the road.” She was just playing with names. It made her happy. Then she saw in front of her an astonishing sight: An old man smiling from ear to ear, his grey beard flowing and carrying skis under his arm. At that time, they were in front of a department store with a sign, “Furniture for Sale.” Because of the sign of the old man, she knew that was the store—but wondered,”What if I am wrong?” Inside there were the perfect nightstands at a very cheap price.
The second section gives stories about how people used their techniques to transform their problems.
I know that I am a magician. I know that my imagination creates the life that I manifest. I like this book because it gives me added techniques for becoming an even better magician. I find this book helpful as an optional resource to address both my problems and those of my clients.
