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. “

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.

Taking Charge of The Energy of Work Place Stress

“Organisms do not experience environments. They create them.” – Richard Lewontin, geneticist

I can’t claim to know this quote but was inspired with it in Margaret Wheately’s new  book “Who do We Choose to Be?- Facing reality, Claiming Leadership – Restoring Sanity”. I think of Wheately as the Deepak Chopra/Chloe Wordsworth of business and management consulting. Her new book is as wonderful as her first from 1992 “Leadership and the New Science” and a must read for those working in situations in need of a new kind of leadership.

In my practice I meet many people who very unhappy in their corporate lives. They start with many fingers pointing at management, difficult colleagues, budget restraints etc. and mostly feel victimized and hopeless. They can initially get quite irritated with me when i explain how the energy of a group works and where they can own their own power to make a difference. Internally if feels justified to blame others because we feel innocent.

The road back is to realize that everyday in every moment we are at a point of choice and can choose to be happy, relaxed, and in a peaceful state of mind. We have the brain hardware to do this and we can control it. However, we can easily fall into a victim state (myself included) when life happens unexpectedly or at least not how we wished it would. We may find it hard to resist options readily provided by our lower brain and unwittingly accept it’s invitation to think negatively – blaming, complaining, being afraid,reactive etc. What we may not realize is that whatever we choose, brings an energy to our field of influence… our family, our coworkers, our volunteer work etc. We create our environment.

What environment have you created for yourself? Consider who is showing up there to hang out with you. What is the tone of the group? Do you feel valued and valuable in this environment? Are you fulfilled? Is it nurturing? Rewarding? Does it make you want to get out of bed in the morning? Is your current experience the one you wanted for yourself?

A great source of unhappiness I see in my practice is for clients facing workplace stress, toxic relationships and general unhappiness. At work they feel unfulfilled and sometimes bullied. The office politics and gossip pool wears them down. It may take a few sessions, but most people start to turn things around when they resonate with taking positive action that makes a huge difference. Simple but effective  things include:

– appreciating the work of others
– asking clearly what they need to get the job done
– clearing up misunderstandings in the moment
– following through with their own commitments
and more.
– discovering their own non coherent group patterns and clearing them goes a long way
– creating new patterns of making others feel welcome and part of the group along with entrainment goes a long way

A new client informed me he was finally convinced about the power of repatterning when he returned to his old formally toxic work place. The same people were there, but the atmosphere was noticeably more positive and uplifting. After doing coffee with a few of his former colleagues he concluded it was the person doing repatterning work on himself that made the difference to the group. At that point he wanted in.

It does not matter where you are on the corporate ladder, when you create your environment to ‘be the change….’ you not only change your experience for you, others will experience it as well.

Notice something positive in your environment today.   Appreciate yourself for the positive thought!

With love and light
Carolyn

 

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.

Give Your Business an Acupuncture Tune-Up

Journeys With Oz

Using the 5 Element Theory of acupuncture and the related business qualities of each meridian as presented in Chloe Wordsworth’s “Transforming Five Element and Meridian Patterns with RR” you can reset the energy for any aspect of your business.   It is a most creative use for the Meridian and 5 Element patterns where you will proxy   the ‘system of energy’ represented by your company.  Ultimately we are talking about the energies of all the people past and present that comprise the entity of your  business that now  forms a group field of energy.   You may be drawn to the idea of Repatterning your business because you have a business problem, but equally, you may want to start this Repatterning with your company vision or a set of intentions for your company.   Check for what is needed – the system often surprises us on where we need to clear patterns.

…of Chinese Acupuncture to help us evolve to a higher understanding of our present circumstances

Stress – a fact of life

Most of our problems, if not all of them, relate to stress.

Research has shown that when we are free of stress, our immune system is strong and well-functioning, and that in stressful circumstances our immune system becomes depleted and loses it optimal functioning.

But research has also proved that when we handle stress in a successful way, our immune system is boosted, even higher than if we had no stress at all.

The challenge of this past year of stress and its opportunity

This year, on a national level, if not globally, millions of people in the US have been seriously stressed out.

Even if you have no political interest, you probably have clients who are angry, afraid…

Discovering the Potential within Yourself

Michael E. Fisher

Discover the potential within yourself to spiral up into greater coherence at a physical, mental, emotional and spirit level. What holds us back from attaining what we truly want in our life? Is it that we are so preoccupied with being a Victim, and that life has been so unfair, as a result we have not fulfilled our dreams of doing something worthwhile, no matter how personal that may be? Not how the world sees us but how we see the world.

Victims very often become Persecutors or Enablers (Rescuers). The Karpman Triangle was conceived by the psychologist Stephen Karpman, M.D. He utilized the triangle to show how easily we become enmeshed.

In nearly every situation when we become a Victim, we react by becoming either a Persecutor, or equally debilitating, an Enabler.

Victim: “I saw the way you looked at me.”

Persecutor : “Oh grow up. Get a Life.”

How to amplify Solstice energy

Is there something you want but don’t have?

Or something you have that you’d like to change?

You might not know that the powerful energy of Solstice can help bring your dream alive.

But you have to know its secret.

I’ve been testing this method for the past year or so, and find it brings a welcome feeling of relief after chaos and uncertainty.

It has to do with simplicity, and with wrapping the end and the beginning into one just right spark of Light.

SOLSTICE HOW TO

1. Take a moment and step into a space of stillness, ideally on December 21 when the earth pauses before changing the direction of its tilt.

2. Imagine a circle of light surrounding you. Bring all the parts of your dream into the circle with you.

3. Now, (this is the secret) imagine condensing all the parts of your dream into one unified spark of energy.

For example, let’s say you hope to expand your business. The truth is that your ideal customer has a need that only you can fill. That means there is a matching energy, a unity of light that already exists, between your client and your service.

It will serve you to see the client, your service, the need you fill and the reward you receive as one and the same, as being all the same vibrating frequency level, as one simplified harmonic note.

This is the point when there is no difference between the giver and the receiver, or the lover and the beloved, or the healer and the healee: simply a unity of intention.

4. This one compressed energy is the seed of Light you align with at the moment of Solstice. That is the seed of Light, of your dream fulfilled, which is best to sow at the moment of Solstice stillness.

5. Let the condensed seed of Light find a home in the silence of your heart, where your dream will come alive throughout the New Year in a way that is not too big, not too small, but just right for you!

I promise!

May peace, power and prosperity be yours this holiday season!

With love

Gail

 

A WINNING SESSION

Sometimes I forget the goodness I do as a Repatterning practitioner. Fear and “compare-despair” show up and I think I have to have more training, or better credentials, or the reassurance of scholarly articles about psychology, quantum physics or metaphysics.

Today I’d like to revisit the simple basics of what we all are privileged to do as students, practitioners and teachers of Resonance Repatterning.

This is a story about Nellie (not her real name) and just one session.

Nellie walked in my door bringing a powerhouse of energy and chatter. In our initial conversation I learned that she had read, studied and experienced many kinds of traditional and complementary therapies. In fact, she had just retired as a social worker running a rape crisis center.

I wondered if and how I could be of help to this experienced therapist.

Nellie had been feeling increasingly depressed.

As we went into her earlier experiences, seeking the core “seed moment” limiting belief and emotional memory imprint, I learned that she was an incest survivor. Plus there were many kinds of addictions and abuse going back for several generations in her family. She knew all their stories.

What she didn’t know was how she had compensated for this as a child – by becoming a people pleaser in an effort to ward off the abuse. She learned to laugh it away, escaping the pain of disapproval when she didn’t go along with the family’s dysfunctional norms.

Her excessive laughter was part of the mask that hid the pain of being abused and devalued. She had spent a lifetime rescuing others who had the same kinds of pain, without every fully healing her own.

What her heart really longed for, we discovered, was a gentle loving father. She was drawn to a nearby Quaker church but didn’t go because she feared her husband wouldn’t approve. Of course, it was her old limiting belief kicking in; only in her imagination did he disapprove.

In the session, we shifted her resonance from the chaos of abuse and addiction, to resonance with the gentle loving spirit she sought. By the time her session was complete, a more truthful and calmer persona had emerged.

She wrote a week later that she had reconnected with the Quaker church, was meditating regularly and awaking each day, no longer depressed, but with a sense of excitement.

This social worker couldn’t believe that so much change had come about as the result of just one session.

And I thought: all I really did was give her permission to be her own true self.

Maybe that’s all we’re meant to do. Help people escape from the painful errors of their limiting beliefs and step into the higher truth of who they really are.

That, and tell these stories of hope to others.

Do you have a winning session story?  Write it up—If you’d like, I’d be happy to help you get it posted.

5 Important Messages to Help You and Your Children Succeed in Life

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.”

A mother holds up her child.

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.
