Divine Connection Through Our Hearts

Divine Connection Through Our Hearts

by Meryl Chodosh-Weiss

Do you find it difficult to establish flow, experience joy and creativity in your life and relationships?

When we find ourselves disconnected from the essence of our Divine nature, our hearts become closed and we are unable to experience bliss in every moment of our lives.

Most importantly, when we feel separated from our innate Divine connection, we often experience life as dry, isolated, lonely, meaningless and frustrating.

We focus on our breathing, our mantra, whatever we can to silence the continual stream of distracting thoughts and negative feelings that keep us from experiencing peaceful meditations and harmony in our lives.

What if the basis of enlightenment, accessing all the riches of the universe, peace, harmony and flow stems not from our minds and somewhere outside of us, but somewhere else?

Buddha said “The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart”.

Recent research by the The Institute of HeartMath (IHM) Research Center and technological advances in how the human mind-body system is able to be studied reveals that the heart emits the strongest electromagnetic field in our body. This electromagnetic field is five thousand times stronger than the brain’s electromagnetic field; it envelops the entire body and extends out in all directions up to several feet outside of the body. Research shows that as we consciously focus on feeling a positive emotion it has a beneficial effect not only on our own health and well-being, but it also can have a positive effect on those around us.

Our hearts are the very first organ we develop in the womb. When we call our attention to the “heart of the matter” we are focusing on the essence, in fact, our essence.

The “shift of the ages,” the shift in consciousness that we are now experiencing, is a movement from duality into oneness. It invites us to live from the oneness, connectedness of all creation in our hearts.

There is a personal power in us that is only available when we move from the duality of our brains (the two hemispheres) into the unity of our hearts, our cores.

The scheduled repatterning during the World Repatterning Summit will shine light on whatever we are ready to clear from our mind-body systems so that we can move into living from our hearts and connecting there with the Divine within us all.

Some Thoughts About Repatterning Sessions Done As Distance Healing

By Meryl Chodosh-Weiss, L.C.S.W

Proxy sessions are distance healing sessions done solely by a practitioner on behalf of a client who has given permission for the session to occur.

When I first embraced Resonance Repatterning® as a student, I was working full-time as a psychotherapist for children who required counseling as part of their mandated individualized educational program in a public school.

Because I was spending so much time with so many people each work day, when I first began practicing I enjoyed doing proxy sessions the most.

Additionally, I had received a proxy session as my first session and experienced the positive and immediate impact of that session. Despite my not knowing when the session was to occur, I felt an immediate change in my energy and emotional state. I correctly surmised that the session had been completed.

I told myself that this process was for me!

I was so enthused about proxy sessions that at the very first, ever, Resonance Repatterning  Conference in 1996 I was on a panel to discuss this aspect of the work.

With the change in the Certification requirements that now permits proxy sessions to be a part of the mix,  one of the student practitioners in the NY Practitioners Skills Development Group last month asked me to give more information about doing proxy sessions.

There are several ways  to initiate a proxy session. Of utmost importance is getting permission from the person (or animal). Even when working with infants and animals, the parent or owner needs to ask  out loud if permission to engage in a session is granted. Pet owners and parents will usually be able to  see if permission is granted or not by the kind of response, or lack of response that is elicited.

Once  when I worked with a newborn in the presence of the mother, I saw the baby gave  definite indication that I was allowed to proceed with the session.

Proxy sessions are done without face-to-face, telephone or Skype interaction during the session. The practitioner may or may not have information about  the client’s presenting problem or  intentions. There my be no knowledge at all about why the session has been ordered or the practitioner may have this information.

If an animal or a non-verbal infant/child is the recipient, you may be given information from the parent or owner about the pet of child, but that information is not from the perspective of the child or animal. You may or may not, as determined by muscle checking for the client, use that information at all.

What is happening in a proxy session is based on the energetic reality of us all being one. With permission we are accessing the person or animal’s energy field and spiritually, their higher self, even though their physical presence is not involved.

There are no interferences,  and what you can access is the raw potency and strength of the client’s uncensored responses to their world. There is no person-to-person presence to filter anything.

This requires that the practitioner stays super centered and takes care of themselves so they can remain neutral and in complete service to their client.

The stance must be accepting , allowing and non-judgmental about anything that is derived from the books or from muscle-checked intuitive material. Nowhere is it more clear that you are the agent for the client and therefore you can not censor at all what comes out in the session.

What is in the experience of most student practitioners that is analogous is how the practitioner holds the space for the client during an Energy Constriction Release. In this process, the practitioner must sometime work on maintaining their own centeredness and their own lack of judgement. The practitioner must  postpone dealing with their own material which might be triggered by the client’s experience.

All of these considerations may be present when working in a proxy session.

How One Psychotherapist Utilizes Resonance Repatterning With Clients In A Private Practice

As a Licensed Clinical Social Worker I am a fully qualified mental health practitioner with the immense good fortune to live my professional life assisting others in their efforts to become their most expanded selves.

On a day to day basis I witness subtle and not so subtle evidence of change in my clients as they relax into new awareness.

I notice the changes in how they are holding themselves in their bodies, in the freed –up expressiveness of their faces, in the very color of their skin tone and circulation as they embrace new coherence in their body-mind systems.

I am blessed to have the right tools at the right time to facilitate the changes. The most comprehensive tool in my toolbox is all that Resonance Repatterning has to offer.

Our colleague Dr. Shirley Lanyi wrote an article in the August, 2010 RPA Journal Thoughts On The Resonance Repatterning Practitioner-Client Process which focuses on the healing relationship. She explores the connection and necessary conditions for an effective therapeutic alliance.

She states

“In conclusion,…. We are part of our clients’ process. Our ability to act with loving kindness, on the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual planes, via our responses and reactions, conscious and unconscious, facilitates our clients’ process, healing and growth, as well as our own.”

This will always be the most important aspect of any practitioners work. What we do is secondary to how it is done, who we are, and what we bring to the therapeutic partnership.

That being said, I’d like to share some applications of Resonance Repatterning in a psychotherapeutic practice.

Naturally, one application is to use the whole process intact with some clients. This allows a practitioner, via muscle checking for what is needed, to access what the specific client needs from the full resources of the system.

We could fill volumes of successful interventions in this category!

Most interesting is the fact that many strategies would be impossible without Resonance Repatterning. For example, one of my clients adopted a newborn child several years ago. With the adoptive mother muscle checking by proxy for the infant, and with a visible sign of permission from the infant when asked out loud, we proceeded to do a series of in person repatternings to deal head on with the infant’s separation from the birth mother.

As the child grew older, repatternings were done to handle other life issues and the child would ask for a session when he felt it was something that he needed.

Clearly even a non- traditional psychotherapy practice would not have been able to embrace this kind of preventative work.

While working with psychotherapy clients several aspects of the Resonance Repatterning system are utilized routinely.

In establishing the framework of the therapeutic alliance verbally and non-verbally there is emphasis on the fact that the person intrinsically has the keys to attain their own sense of well being and wholeness. My job is to assist them in accessing their own wisdom. Although I can provide a safe container for exploration and I can participate as a team member towards the achievement of their goals, I can neither do the work for them nor can I dictate what needs to be done.

Again, this view of a therapeutic partnership is key to the foundation in the Resonance Repatterning client-practitioner endeavor.

Even before introducing the concept of muscle checking with a psychotherapy client, throughout sessions there is the routine use of pauses, nose breathing and simple grounding modalities. As sessions continue, muscle checking for the client’s needs can be incorporated into the psychotherapy session.

With this essential tool accessed, stress reduction and counter-anxiety modalities can be taught to the client according to exactly what that person’s system dictates. Additionally, a session can not only begin with the social work cardinal rule of starting where the client is, but the verbal explorations in a session can be viewed with the perspectives of Problems and Opportunities.

Once we begin using the context of Problems and Opportunities for discussion, statements are written and can be energetically cleared with a modality, if appropriate, so that the psychotherapy session often incorporates profound energetic shifts of material brought to the discussion.

The result is that clients frequently leave their psychotherapy session feeling empowered, ready to integrate changes made and eager to uncover more material in their next session. This is in contrast to the situation that frequently occurs in psychotherapy when the client finally gets to the real “meat” and primary issue of a session just before they need to walk out the door.

These “doorknob revelations” leave the client feeling frustrated and thwarted, like they are on the edge of discovering something great that may be easily lost in transit.

Although toleration of frustration and respect for the boundaries that time limitations impose may be important elements in developing the emotional resiliency necessary for wholeness, when this is added frequently to the mix of the psychotherapy client’s experience of raw vulnerability it may destroy the motivation to continue the process.

As with all things in life, balance is essential. Using muscle checking to determine what is best as dictated by a person’s higher self is a way to grow optimal well-being not only for the Resonance Repatterning client, but for the psychotherapy client as well.
