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

Be the Change in the World

As international Women’s Day approached this month, I found myself reflecting on how 2017 was quite the year for regular media announcements about women’s rights and women’s equality or the lack of it.
What has seemed different though is the strength of the female voice that has arisen recently. We have had social media for a while now so what has changed, I wonder.

Did we reach a tipping point?
Was that it?

Was it that so many women spoke out, that they were heard by enough others that even those who had until then been quiet, ended up speaking out, too?

Now in the USA training in sexual harassment is taking off in an unprecedented way, and lawyers have more lawsuits on their hands, but little fundamental change is really occurring if you read what those involved are saying …
and little real change will occur until societies norms change.

Norms arise from what we believe and all over the world women have been in second place and their fundamental rights ignored for centuries. Even when we think we have become enlightened we find out that we have not moved on that much. Deep underneath, our unconscious beliefs govern our behavior and it is not until these patterns clear and positive uplifting ones are put in place of the old ones, that we have a chance of transforming our norms.

No matter how much we might protest, what governs what comes into our lives are our unconscious beliefs. Those beliefs that we are unaware of …. the ones we have and are not aware we live by, the ones that are there deep down from previous generations of women who felt powerless to challenge the status quo and whose physical survival depended on the men in their lives. The ones from earlier generations, from our mother’s and our father’s family lines.

So when international women’s day came around on the 8th March this year, and in view of all the unrest I’d witnessed, I found myself taking the only kind of action that I knew could make a difference to the plight of women around the world. I chose to do a Resonance Repatterning session.

In Resonance Repatterning, of the many processes we have for change or transforming negative patterns, we have one called “Intention for a New possibility”. This is an exercise for setting what you want to happen in the short, medium or long term ….. in your life, your work, your relationships, in all areas.

Because we are all connected no matter how near or how far, we can use one person as a proxy for everyone else. In Resonance Repatterning, we first identify all aspects of the change we want to make, and then we find the healing modality that will enable the shift to occur and later check how the resonance has changed. Because we are all connected, we also have the potential to connect with each other and feel any change that occurs.

On 8th March, when my Resonance Repatterning colleague, Sophia Avramides, and I conducted an Intention for a New Possibility session for women around the world, the statement that emerged was:

“We close the gender gap in pay around the world. Everyone receives equal pay for equal work regardless of gender, age, race or anything else”

At the start of the session, we were not resonating with this intention; at the end of the session, after identifying all of the different aspects and after doing the modality for change, we were resonating with closing the gender gap in pay around the world and everyone receiving equal pay for equal work regardless of gender, age, race or anything else. Beautiful!
You can listen to a recording of the session and also get a pdf document of the same by going to this write up at the World Peace Hologram website.

Here I want to write more about the healing modality that came up for the session. Through muscle testing we identified that the Hatha Yoga Lion Pose was needed, and at the end of the session it also came up as a positive action.
When a post session positive action comes up, it does so to embed the energy shift that has already taken place. In this case though what was most unusual was that it came up to repeat this every day until the end of the month – another twenty three days.

My thought about this was that the shift that was needed around the world through the many different cultural beliefs and norms was so enormous, that the energy needed to keep being amplified, one person at a time, all around the globe until we were all connected.

Can you imagine all of us connecting in this way ….

with the same positive action,

one highly visible easy to do pose?

 

It’s as if we have been given a gift to exercise our ability to take part in world wide change. Imagine if we all believed that quantum change were possible, perfectly easy and instantaneously possible.

I am smiling at the thought of all the Lions and all the Lionesses around the world sticking out their tongues, old and young, big and small, all glaring at each other, claws out, paws pointing, roaring and releasing all the anger and frustration of the centuries …. and then letting go of and allowing relaxation to take over ….. each muscle letting go, and a wave of relaxation starting from around the eyes and cheek bones, moving to the jaw, throat and neck and all the way through the shoulders, arms, hand and fingers …. ending with hands now relaxed and calmly resting on your knees, happy to be still and in a comfortable place.

What image comes into your mind when you see this intention being realised …. We close the gender gap in pay around the world. Everyone receives equal pay for equal work regardless of gender, age, race or anything else!!!

We know that thoughts, images, ideas and intentions create our reality.
Think and therefore it is.

Thank you for doing the Lion Pose with us 🙂

 Thank you for changing reality!

My first blog. What is a blog? Answers for the computer illiterate.

I have been asked to write a blog for the RPA journal. But what is a blog? I’m not sure I know. I went to the shelf and pulled out my trusty dictionary and looked it up – it wasn’t there. Throughout all my school years and throughout all my children’s school years, the dictionary sitting in its place on the bookshelf has given us the answer to so many questions – but not this time. Not the word ‘blog’. I had to resort to that modern day ubiquitous resource – the computer – and look it up online! As we do so often nowadays. I am told a blog was originally ‘weblog’ adapted to………’we blog’.

Like my mother, who having spent most of her life without that simple luxury we all take so much for granted – a shower – couldn’t see why after years without one, she should need such a thing – just because everyone else wanted her to have one. Or indeed, even a computer. And so she didn’t. In that same way – having myself only had a computer in the latter part of my life, it is difficult for me to see why I would want to blog, or even to read the blogs of others.

I suppose blogs have replaced what used to be the magazine article which one would take home to pour over in a relaxing tea break. Although the less serious hyped up scandalous in-your-face ‘news items’ – that now abound on ‘t-internet ‘- are more what has taken the place of that. You know what I mean, the ones that grab your attention while you’re not looking, that get you reading but land you up nowhere useful.

So what about those more serious, actually useful and informative types of articles? Where are they lurking?  The ones that require a bit more diligence to find? How do I find my way to something I actually want to read? Something relating to my passion, or my line of work – the healing arts, energy medicine, and Resonance Repatterning?

And that’s where the RPA Journal blog comes in. Like all things on the internet, you have to know where to look to find it. Once you have been there often enough you don’t even notice you’re ‘searching’ any more, you just know the way. But when you haven’t been there that often, it’s a bit harder to recall the route, especially for those of us who didn’t grow up in the computerised age. It’s a bit like finding your way down a rabbit warren.

The RPA journal blog is just a few clicks away – if you can remember which ones they are! You can speed that journey by saving it in your ‘favourites’. So for those of us who, like me, need to be dragged kicking and screaming through a hedge backwards to get into the world of computers, blogging is a bit of an alien concept. But having been pushed and pulled, coaxed and cajoled, by colleagues in the RPA, here I am having a go!

I haven’t said anything very much so far, yet I wonder how many hearts I have touched, or sparked interest in. Just to show yourselves, or each other, how this whole gig works I invite you to comment in the ‘comments box’ below. Just a few words of your own experience, or your response to reading this article, or blog to be more precise, or what it evoked in you. And then you will be doing it too!

Yes, I think I’ve got it now – blogging is a dialogue that connects us all, even to others we haven’t met before. And if I did that with the telephone, I’d be considered weird! If I just dialled up a random number and struck up a conversation with someone I don’t know. But here on the blog post page – which isn’t really a page -it’s ok to do that. You can find me, and see who I am, and read what I have to say, even if it’s nothing at all. You can comment back in the chat box, or even write a blog of your own. You may even have, or dare to create, a website all of your own – and blog to your own audience there – or both!

What’s more, if you do leave a comment or click on ‘like’ here, or someone does that for you on a blog post you’ve written, it creates a cyberspace ripple that leads to more traffic, or publicity,  for you and your interest –  as here in Resonance Repatterning – your business and mine.

Like casting my fishing hook out upon the waters and waiting for a fish to bite, I cast my blog out upon the internet waves and wait for someone to read and hopefully respond. Just really creating waves of moving energy – like a spiral up!

So click away, type away, blog away all; come blogger, come student, come practitioner all.

Let’s pick up our heels and fly away all; and answer that enticing, blog-away call!

On We Grow

 

 

 

 

 

 

Warm greetings from Tina Beneman in the Baltimore area.

One of the greatest treasures in my Resonance Repatterning practice is the relationships kindled with other practitioners. I am so lucky to trade sessions with three amazing professionals. I also mentor and practice with two outstanding students.

In addition to great tips and insights, hearing the words others use to express concepts is so helpful. I heartily encourage others to “buddy up.” In addition to the pleasure of fellowship, it is vital to receive sessions yourself and feel the power of the work we offer. This experience never fails to strengthen me and my commitment to “be the change I want to see in the world.”

Another huge plus is learning from what others are learning . My buddy Shyama Orum recently completed Donna Eden’s Energy Medicine practitioner training . She discovered a fantastic series of U tubes that demonstrate many techniques. Just listening to Prune Harris speak in her lovely English accent is a modality in itself! After watching the videos, I can easily make additions to the modalities list so that new techniques are handy to include in sessions.

So how about you? I would love to hear what others are discovering to add even more value to our work in the world.

On we grow!
Love, Tina

Poetry, a healing modality expressing the soul

I have written poetry for many years, very free form, and because of that, saw it as a less than qualified piece of writing to share.

I also used poetry as a healing modality many times in my practice of Resonance Repatterning. When it comes up for a client, they usually say, I can’t write a poem. I tell them it’s simply words from the soul and there is no need to rhyme or say it in a certain way. Many times I check for the number of lines, could be 4 or 5 or more. Then I leave them alone to be silent, listen to the words that come up for them and to simply write. It’s always amazing and they are always astounded at what comes out. At one time I saved all of these poems and considered writing a short book about the healing modality of poetry. One of those unfinished thoughts so far.

And I remember at Resonance Repatterning conferences how, many times, Chloe would have the whole group write a poem as a healing. We would all volunteer a word of phrase. They were all written down on a flip chart. And when it muscle checked we had enough, then she would muscle check which phrase was first, which was second, and so on. It was magical what would evolve out of these co-creations.

So I now am giving myself the freedom and opportunity to share more of the poems that I have been drawn to write in the last 2 or 3 years. Its been an action-packed time, with relationships, deaths and expansion, so a great deal of fodder for the soul and my continually evolving consciousness. This was a post I wrote on Facebook in July of this year. I admit after my first urging to share it, I had to do it quick that morning, before I changed my mind.

“I am choosing to do something that feels vulnerable and the artists, whether they be musicians or writers or actors that I admire all talk about the pieces that get the most response are the pieces that come from deeply inside of them. I have long admired their courage. So I am sharing this stream of consciousness poem that I did this morning in response to a personal event in the hopes that it has meaning for any or some of you. Or maybe I just need to step up emotionally naked and have the experience. Not sure and probably all of the above. Initially, there were 109 responses, (Facebook helps track everything, of course) and I had a writer friend who shared with me that my poem received more hits than his published blog pieces. It did seem to speak to a lot of people. So I will share my post here and hope this article inspires something for you, whether its personal, in your practice or in your life somewhere. “

Sunrise 7/31/17
There is always something
To feel hurt by
To regret
To be disappointed by
Deeply disappointed
And there is always
Beauty and wonder
Love and satisfaction
Deep and fulfilling satisfaction
There is always
Wonder and excitement
And always, always
New possibilities
The magic of above and beyond
That is what I am always reaching for
Above and beyond
The limitless that allows soaring
The infinite that feels no limits
While at the same time
Honoring the boundaries
That honor this body, this moment,
That helps me deepen into
The vastness of the worlds
Within this world of this moment
This cell, this infinite universe
Within, within, within.
There’s always a new way to go
When the expected journey is blocked
A new way to feel
When the present feeling
No longer serves.
A new way to love
When the present way of loving
Starts to feel
Too tender or fragile
For the moment.
I am grateful for all these
Possibilities
And the challenges that
Open the door to them.
I am grateful for you and me
And all that is before us
And behind us
And most of all I am grateful
For Now.
A deepening and expanding of Now
The Now within me which is infinite
The Now in this world
Which surprises, pleases
Frustrates, saddens and twists me,
And stretches me beyond all
The Nows before
Thank the God/dess there is always something.

Chloe Wordsworth and Resonance Repatterning

Thought Leaders Blog

Chloe Wordsworth is a thought leader for sure. She has been developing Resonance Repatterning (also known as Holographic Repatterning) and refining this system for almost forty years.

Resonance Repatterning, is one of the most powerful transformative approaches I have experienced. It gives us a new way of listening deep within ourselves and working with our inner wisdom, through accessing the quantum field and the world of frequencies and vibrations within and all around us.

I first met and trained with Chloe in 2000. From her background in acupuncture and polarity therapy and knowledge of many other healing modalities, Chloe developed her holographic approach to healing. Resonance Repatterning uses our muscle response (from applied kinesiology) to answer questions not from our conscious mind but from our unconscious self, and accesses our energy field to identify our patterns. At any moment in time, it gives us the ability to identify which positive aspects we are now ready to resonate with…

Borderline Personality Disorder

Sometimes during the course of one’s practice of Resonance Repatterning, one comes across a number of symptoms involving low self-esteem, or a high level of insecurity. These individuals may have a difficult time staying in loving relationships because of certain extreme behaviours. We would characterise this as non-coherent behaviour, while at the same time the client would have certain intentions which we would characterise as positive intentions that they do not resonate with. So we say that ‘Problems are something we have that we don’t want, and intentions are something we want but don’t have,’ and when we’ve identify that, we look at the underlying Unconscious Patterns, not Subconscious, because it could come from our D.N.A., conception issues, parental issues, etc.

Common problems that appear in people suffering from, Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) include:

  • Frequent displays of anger
  • Unstable self-image
  • Irritability
  • Anxiety
  • Impulsiveness
  • Extreme opinions and judgement of others
  • Passive, aggressive behaviour
  • Suicide threats

Individuals with this condition frequently change their goals and aspirations. They may go through friends quickly or change their sexual orientation.

There may be some risk factors historically, especially in their formative years, such as:

  • Being abandoned as a child or teenager
  • Coming from a seriously dysfunctional family
  • Having a normal childhood disrupted
  • Being a victim of verbal, physical or sexual abuse as a child

Here are some possible scenarios:

  • Improving the quality of your relationships, by identifying what is and isn’t working for you and changing it (Unconscious Pattern)
  • Understanding how your unique personal life’s story may impact you attitudes, thoughts and beliefs in order to facilitate change in those which are ineffective (Positive Intention)
  • Gaining insight into your relationship conflicts (Unconscious Pattern)
  • Learning communication, coping and problem solving skills (Positive Intention)
  • Becoming more confident in your relationships, including yourself, being able to speak up for yourself, set boundaries and build demonstrable resilience (Positive Intention)
  • Helping you become more satisfied with what you have and how to get what you want, if you are not (Problems to Opportunities) Adrian Krauss, M.F.T

Whatever a person speaks has a two-fold effect. One is the Action, and the other is the Reaction. The reaction resounds in and near the speaker and creates the same type of thought-currents in his environment. Thus whatever thoughts, virtuous or wicked, emanate from him, they engender their exact resonance. This is an inviolate and unrelenting law, which operates in connection with both animate and inanimate objects alike. It cannot be erased.
