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.

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!

We’re hoping to collect comments and images from all over in that one place.

Amnesia: “Who am I”

 

The dictionary definition of Amnesia is: loss of memory
(Greek< Forgetfulness)

 

When we take birth as a sentient being, a human being, we could well ask ourselves the questions:
• Who am I?
• Where am I?
• Why am I here?
• What am I doing here?
• Is this my home?
• What is my purpose?

Who am I?
The moment the umbilical cord is cut, we forget completely who we are in relation to our past existence on this planet, we are cut off from all knowledge of who the soul inhabited in a past life.
We are conditioned into our perceptions.
Our upbringing according to whatever birth mother we have been given, we adopt whatever we are taught, as an inherited truth and proof of our existence. We are taught by example what we experience, so we take on the identity of what is being handed to us. This influences us to adopt whatever knowledge and spiritual values we are conditioned into.

Where am I?
If we take the analogy of three houses all next door to each other, in one house there is a Christian family, next door is a Muslim family and the third house contains a Jewish family. We adopt all of the teachings, traditions and rituals that will determine how we will be educated, what religious affiliations we will adopt and it could determine how we grow and thrive in our community. But is this who we are? Or are we told ‘Who we are.’

This begs the question of ‘Free Will’ or lack of it?
As in a game of chess, the opening gambit will determine the rest of the game..

Why am I here?
We embody our ‘Unconscious Patterns’, not ‘Subconscious’ because it can go to the moment of conception when the sperm enters the egg and the egg starts to divide; our D.N.A., our beliefs about ourselves and others. It can be parental, what we have inherited from our parents, our Vision (what is the Vision we want to live by for the rest of our lives); our Relationships, our family and cultural systems.

The mind is extremely powerful and it influences us for both good and evil. At the time of birth the soul is knotted to the mind and its job is to untie the knot, as in a needle that is attracted to a magnet, the soul is pulled to return to its source. But a heavy stone is placed on the needle which hampers it from getting to the magnet.

All these questions need to be asked if we are to recover our memory. That is why Resonance Repatterning is one tool that can help us to change the frequencies that we resonate with.
The analogy is like peeling an onion, peeling away the layers that hold us back from shining who we truly are, and what we are doing here, and ultimately is this our final destination.
Life as we know it, is finite, whether as a Prince/Princess or a pauper we all have to drop our mortal coil, what the world describes as Death. It comes to us all. But it is the Journey not the destination that is important. So we are left with:
• I know who I am.
• I know where I am.
• I know why I am here.
• I know what my purpose is.
• This is not my home

Writer’s block!

I have always struggled with writing and for years I believed that I just couldn’t write. At school, though maths and science was easy, I could never quite grasp the mechanics of how to write. I remember one of my teachers told me once that I had good ideas, but I needed to flesh them out – my prose read like a telegram. I couldn’t understand what she meant and she wasn’t able to explain it to me. Now, years later, I read what I wrote then and agree with her – I was writing telegrams!

In a way, I feel somewhat cheated of the opportunity to express myself creatively through writing, something which I now love doing. But, at the same time, I understand that it’s all a process and a journey and something which we all learn at different speeds and different times in our lives. In my case, becoming a teacher gave me the opportunity to learn all the things I had missed in my own schooling and understand how to structure my writing, but I still lacked self-confidence for a while. And that’s where Resonance Repatterning came to the rescue!

Through the Writing Repatterning, Self-Image Repatterning, Belief Repatterning, Creative Self-Expression Repatterning and more, I was able to shift the energy blocks that have been holding me back and reach a point where I enjoy writing and have the courage to publish a blog post like this one! It’s an ongoing process to be sure, but I feel like I am light-years ahead of where I was and keen to help others discover this joy.

So what about you? Have you found your writing voice yet? Do you love writing, but struggle with writer’s block? Perhaps you know just what to say, but wrestle with the idea of putting yourself out there, sharing your writing and ideas with others, and stepping into the limelight. Resonance Repatterning can help with all these problems and so much more!

Click here to find out more about Resonance Repatterning or contact me today to book a session and transform those negative thoughts, feelings, and beliefs that hold you back, into positive ones that allow you to manifest what you want and fill you with boundless energy, joy, and a deep sense of well-being. 

Are You a Healer Struggling to Be Seen?

“Step Into the Spotlight”
with Resonance Repatterning®

When I volunteered to be the practitioner for the January 2018 Walking Our Talk group Resonance Repatterning session I had no idea on which topic I wanted to focus. So I let it simmer on the back burner of my mind.

Then one of my friends shared a post on facebook about a retreat. I’ve been thinking of leading a retreat next year, so I was curious to know who was running this event.

I went to the webpage and this retreat looked great! But there was no mention of who was leading it. Ok. Maybe that was an oversight.

But I still wanted to know: “Who is this woman who put together this fabulous offering?” So I looked at her homepage.

Nothing.

Well, surely she’s on her About page?

Nope.

The About page detailed her personal journey from pain to healing. She shared her values and why she loves her work. When I finished reading her page, I felt like I knew a lot about her.

But would I go away on a retreat with her?

No way.

Why?

There was no picture of her.

And she never once even told us her name!

Clearly she put a lot of time and energy into developing her website and telling her story. But, if you want me to get on a plane to some remote, exotic place, and spend 5 days with you, you at least have to tell me your name and show me your picture. Right?

So that’s how my topic for the monthly Walking Our Talk Repatterning emerged.

When “Stepping Into the Spotlight” came to me, I thought, “That’s it!”

That’s exactly what I need in order to move to the next level, both professionally and personally.

I think a lot of healers struggle with visibility issues.

I know I do.

Each step of the way in building my full-time Resonance Repatterning® practice I’ve had to “kick myself out of the nest.”

That’s what I call it.

Seriously.

I know what it feels like when your resistance to moving out of your comfort zone is so strong that it feels like even a stick of dynamite won’t budge you.

So you know what I do?

I give myself Resonance Repatterning® sessions and I receive sessions from other practitioners.

In building my own professional practice, and working with clients over the past 17 years, I’ve learned that there are so many facets and underlying patterns that hold our visibility blocks in place.

Everything from past lives of persecution and banishment (witch trials? Inquisition?), to not wanting to come off as ego-driven or conceited, can make being seen in the world a terrifying thing.

Add in all those generational, family and karmic patterns – with a dash of earlier experiences from this lifetime – of not being seen, heard and believed – and it’s no wonder so many of us shy away from being seen in all of our glorious magnificence!

I think women, especially, struggle with visibility issues. The #metoo movement is bringing to light just how many of us have earlier experiences of unwanted sexual attention.

From catcalls on the street, to groping, to rape – they all leave their energetic imprint.

These earlier experiences give rise to ingrained patterns of “It’s not safe to be seen” and “I need to be quiet and stay under the radar.” And you have to keep chipping away at them.

Have you heard the saying, “New level, new devil?”

I’ve found that with each new level of visibility comes yet another challenge to clear these out-dated patterns at a deeper level.

That’s why this “Stepping Into the Spotlight” Repatterning is ideal for:

• RR Students facing observation for certification
• Newly Certified Practitioners giving RR demonstrations in your local community, and
• Seasoned practitioners ready to up-level their business.

But truly, this session is for anyone who yearns to break free of the chains of the past and be seen and heard in a bigger, more effective way.

If you would like to identify and clear these patterns in yourself, please contact Elizabeth Tobin for a session today. The world is waiting for you!

Welcoming a new vision for a new year

I received a wonderfully gentle resonance repatterning session today which left me feeling relaxed in my body in a way that I have never felt before. I can only describe it as a kind of liquid warmth, melting quietly and calmly into me. The image that comes to mind is of golden molten light, like the sun’s rays reflecting on gentle waves that are smooth and curvy and so so quiet.  And the sound is of aaaaaahhhh ….. and mmmmmmm …. almost imperceptible.

How welcome this feeling is at the end of a week where my mind is tired from working on the computer.

Thinking about the New Year and of what to write here has also been a central theme. It being THE time that many of us talk about setting our goals for the year ahead or making new year resolutions, pondering how to show up in the world, shiny and bright, with purpose and passion, I had thought this would be a good topic for the beginning of January.

Until now that is, when Resonance Repatterning stops me in my tracks and gives me something more majestic to ponder.

One statement today captured me as I was asked to repeat its words. I hardly ever recall what comes up in a repatterning session afterwards (either when giving or receiving) yet today this statement sits boldly before me.

“My inner light gives me clear vision”

…. These words make me pause …. and become still.

When I expected to be writing about setting intentions and goals, seeing them out there ahead of me, illuminated clearly between me and the horizon, I did not anticipate being brought back here, to stand in the midst, to be in the moment, to experience the light inside.

No matter how much I know that we are connected to the source and that all we need is already within us, I am still drawn to thinking that I need to set my sights on things outside of me, things I need to accomplish, and achievements that will make me feel accomplished.

To notice how my mind can put out these persuasive messages, that this time “I just need to set New Year’s resolutions in a more effective way in order to achieve them”, is enough to call its bluff. Thank God for resonance repatterning and the way it reminds me to let go of the repetitive patterns that do not work for me, like trying to set ever better new year resolutions or life goals.

Instead it reminds me to relax and step into the light within, trusting it to illuminate where I go and how I shine.

How magical a gift is resonance repatterning, enabling us to tap into the wisdom within and all around us, and to reconnect to our inner vision.
What a wonderful process to help us see our light within and reflect it around the globe.

Revolution from the inside out

Before experiencing Resonance Repatterning in 2000 my inner compass was set to terror, rage, grief, self hatred, shame and worthlessness. Life felt pointless with the odd moment of relief. Now it’s the opposite and however challenging my outer circumstances are, my inner state is one of calm joy, along with a deep appreciation of being alive. I still have the odd moment when I forget I have a choice but I’ve almost forgotten how desperate I used to feel. It is not an exaggeration to say I believe it has saved my life.

To put it simply, I just feel better. Better than I thought possible. As it is for so many of us, my life began with trauma. I was taken from my mother immediately after birth. I spent most of the first two months of my life alone. I was adopted and then experienced years of violence and abuse on all levels. When I was at my most helpless I felt severely let down. I didn’t know what it was like to feel relaxed, held by life or welcomed. I had received a clear message that I was unloveable and was here to be punished. I lived this reality long after the external abuse had stopped. I moulded myself to be liked by others because it felt like a matter of life and death. When I was a baby and a small child, it was. Mostly that meant keeping quiet, making myself as small and invisible as possible. I used to numb myself with a whole array of addictions. Those early experiences, especially the first two months of life and certainly the first four years set the scene and the patterns formed then keep on repeating, for better or worse, unless we choose to interrupt them.

Thanks to Resonance Repatterning I’ve gradually switched my focus to self acceptance and self love. Some people like me, some don’t, either way I’m ok, it’s no longer a matter of survival. I survived. You survived too if you’re reading this. These ways of being kept us alive and are now simply outdated. Now we are free to create a sense of safety so we can welcome back younger parts of ourselves that shut down or split off. We’re now free to be who we are at our core and to do what truly makes our hearts sing. Because I resonated with these patterns, that is what I experienced. Even when I met people who did love me, I wasn’t able to receive the love. I know now how treasured by life I am, how much we all are and it feels gorgeous. I now have an inner mother and father who nurture my child aspect and it finally feels safe enough to land in my body.

What has made the difference is the support to be with painful feelings and access the courage to breathe into them, feel and release them, move with them as they naturally transform; along with lots of shaking to release trauma stored in the body. The first year or so was intense transformation then it became more gradual, with lots of stops and starts until I finally let go and decided to trust life. It wasn’t a linear process. More like a spiral. When I choose to use these tools they work.

Being an active participant with the RPA this past year has brought so much more confidence and I’ve learnt so much about how to effectively share what I have to offer. I’ve experienced the joy of being part of a team with a united goal. By sharing what we each have to offer, we all benefit.

Viktor Frankl, an Auschwitz survivor, used to ask the people he worked with why they hadn’t killed themselves. He wanted to discover what they were most passionate about, what mattered enough to them to keep them alive and to encourage them to focus on that. I used to want to be dead but a deeply buried part of me was curious enough to stick around and I’m so glad I did. To be taking steps, however tiny, towards creating my dream brings such fulfilment.  Are you curious about why you’re here and what you have to give? Everyone has a part to play and we’re all equally important. Imagine being free of the need to cover up the pain of self rejection. Addictive patterns and behaviours are an attempt to fill the emptiness that a disconnection from your heart and your wild Nature causes. You can choose to reconnect.

You can’t change the past, but with Resonance Repatterning you can change the impact of the past in your present. You can bring health to every area of your life. It’s possible for you to feel better and more alive than you can probably even imagine right now. It’s entirely possible to change how your brain responds to stress and relax naturally, free of addictions. You can repattern the part of your brain that makes you crave things you know aren’t good for you and to find healthier ways to get that boost or high. It’s even possible to repattern your experience from as early as being in the womb. Some really simple ways are being out in full spectrum light, listening to music, dancing, connecting your breath with your movement and using your voice in a group. It can be great fun to be part of a group and there’s no need to worry about what others think of you as they’re probably too busy worrying about what you think of them.

I’m so inspired by how Resonance Repatterning can be used in so many settings such as hospitals, addiction centres, prisons, schools, refugee camps and old peoples’ homes. It can bring more freedom, hope and joy into places of struggle, despair and darkness.

I’d be delighted to offer you a session so you can experience it for yourself and I also offer ongoing groups with peer support, to integrate changes smoothly over time. Greater transformation is possible in groups with ongoing support. It is priceless to know you are connected and welcome as you are.

With love to you all,

Tabitha.

The Practice and Refinement of Resonance Repatterning

I have been teaching Resonance Repatterning since 1995 and have been privileged to teach some amazing practitioners. I recently interviewed two of them. (Ardis Ozborn, Resonance Repatterning teacher)

Interview with Julie Steve, certified practitioner since 2010

How did you first learn about Resonance Repatterning?
A friend introduced me to a practitioner who did body scans. The scan validated the stress in my body as we explored the emotions held in the organs, and a light bulb went off in terms of my childhood traumas. She suggested a Resonance Repatterning session to identify negative thought patterns and beliefs that I was still resonating with. I began the session from a negative space and at the end I felt like wonder woman! I was ready to tackle the world. I felt so completely different each time I received a session that I decided to learn how to do this myself.

What have you enjoyed most about learning Resonance Repatterning?
I can help  become more grounded, positive and focused. When I have a problem or issue I realize it’s a pattern I can shift. I get excited about helping other people make such a transition in their sessions. When those I love have issues I can offer them a session, too.

What kind of practice have you created?
I work a lot with young women and children. I think that has a lot to do with my personal history. I relate to their experiences and feel compassion for what they are going through. Since I have dealt with many of the same issues, I can meet them where they are. I love children. Because of all my repatternings, I am more in touch with my little girl. Children know when you are being real with them. My clients help me as I help them–especially when patterns come up that I have worked on myself. It gives me a great appreciation for their process.

You are a Jehovah’s Witness and devout in your practice. Has there been any conflict for you in studying and practicing Resonance Repatterning?
No. I researched Resonance Repatterning carefully before I began my studies. No religious teaching is brought into the trainings. It is based on science, energy medicine, and psychological principles. I appreciate that very much.

You have retaken the classes many times. What has that given you?
In my Kingdom Hall we read the entire Bible through every year. Each time it deepens my faith. It’s like that when I retake the courses. Each time it builds on my depth of understanding and appreciation for it’s complexity.

Who would you recommend these seminars to?
Anyone who takes responsibility for working on one’s self could benefit. I always struggled in school and was afraid it would be like that again. I was pleasantly surprised that they were fun and easy for me. I was learning without realizing that I was learning. At the end of the day, I was amazed at the amount of energy I had. I felt so alive and absorbed so much. When I came home my energy had shifted, and those around me shifted, too. That was a bonus!

Interview with Bobbie Martin, certified practitioner and teacher from Kansas City, Missouri:

How long have you been practicing?
I started in 1997. I had a session that I enjoyed and then agreed to organize a series in Kansas City, where I took the training. I backed into it totally. I was open to new ideas. With the many things I have learned and practiced in  the past, I get what I need and move on. I have been doing this for 15 years now and I am still stimulated. There is always more to learn and grow with. It is very respectful to the client–efficient and respectful of their own timing as well. We can both relax and know that things will only come up when you are ready for them.

What was your healing background?
I was already a professional psychic with a full practice. Learning Resonance Repatterning was fun and easier than doing psychic work. It felt like play to me,  not work. I started using it with my existing clients, and it helped me reaffirm that this was led by the client not me “on the pedestal” with all the answers. I empowered my clients, and the process itself kept me intrigued. There was always something new in the sessions that I was stimulated by. With some clients I combined a little psychic work with a repatterning to go deeper when their system was ready to talk to us.

What is your Resonance Repatterning specialty?
What I do well is connect the dots for people. This is my gift. I always did this with my psychic readings. I would get  impressions, and gradually it was a kaleidoscope of pictures that led to the “aha” moments. I do this with Resonance Repatterning–I don’t consciously bring me into it. This is not psychic work. I had to make a conscious choice to make peace with that. I don’t do anything in a session, including giving my input, unless I muscle check that it is appropriate. It can sometimes be a distraction from the session. I keep my focus on honoring their system.

What have you learned along the way?
In a session I am not always sure why things are coming up, but I know it will make sense as we go through it. People value this. I have the ability to bring whole pictures together. At the end of the session they see why things came up, and it all fits. At the start of the session, I ask the client what is going on with them. I take notes and have become a very good scribe! I have learned to value their wording, even an off-hand remark. I muscle check to see if it should be included. Their words have the vibration. If I use their words, I am a good mirror for them, and they are shocked and amazed that the answers they are looking for are the words they just spoke!

This is a PhD in energy medicine. The work is so deep and life changing. When business clients come for help they soon realize that it is their energy driving their business. If it is off, what is going on with them? It’s the same for me. If my appointment base goes off, it’s not the economy.  This is my barometer. It is within me. I use Resonance Repatterning to coach business people and myself.  It’s all about energy. Once you clean up the internal issues the business or practice gets back on track.

Magui Block (a.k.a. Carin Block) Creates a Resonance Repatterning New Workshop

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
  • Destructive 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.

A Plethora of Power for a Cockatiel

For most of us, a feeling of abundance, or the lack of it, usually goes hand in hand with issues around money and financial success. Since 1998, my clients have all been of the four-legged, winged or finned variety. From rhinos and elephants, to dogs, cats, horses, birds, rabbits and a beehive, I do Resonance Repatterning sessions exclusively for animals. So, how does abundance, as we perceive it, fit into their lives?

We might think that a squirrel, for instance, would be a candidate for an Abundance Repatterning around anxiety about being able to find enough nuts to last through the winter. A packrat’s problem might involve its inability to make a successful getaway after burgling someone’s jewelry box. Or what about a thoroughbred horse that wins the Kentucky Derby? Wouldn’t he feel more abundant thanks to receiving some extra hay?

One of my clients, a cockatiel named Tootie, lost her position as leader in the pecking order with several other birds. She didn’t feel that being a mother to her chick was fulfilling her destiny. In other words, she was suffering from the cockatiel equivalent of postpartum depression. During her session, an Earth Element Repatterning emphasized Tootie’s negative state of self-punishment. To feel nurtured, she would have to accept herself for who she really was. After her session, Tootie’s attitude changed. She began to eat and even ignored her chick’s jealousy when the number one person in their lives paid more attention to Tootie. As that person put it, “She’s getting her power back!

While Chloe Wordsworth stresses the importance of all of the elements – wood, earth, fire, water and metal – in connection with the Abundance Repatterning, in her Introduction she points out that only a finely-tuned water element allows for the easy functioning of one’s power and energy in relationship to the ebb and flow of one’s money and financial reserves. A Water Element Repatterning came up in a session for another client, an elderly Shih-Tzu named Petunia who, having lost her sight, had become a recluse. Her age and blindness were changing the dynamics of her relationship with her person; she felt powerless, hopeless and needy, all negative water element qualities. Reflecting a shift to a positive water element quality, after sharing my session notes with her, Petunia’s person said, “She’s experiencing some really nice changes. We’re in the flow!”

Much more than just having money, wealth and financial success, abundance also means ampleness, bounty, opulence, plenty, plethora, profusion, prosperity and thriving. Recently, I did a session for an elderly whippet who was wasting away because he couldn’t do the things he used to, and he couldn’t live up to his person’s expectations that he would regain at least some of his lost youth. An Integration for Growth Repatterning culminated in a Positive Action in which he and his person had to work together. “It has brought him closer to me in that he allows me to help him. Before, he seemed aloof and did not care about his life anymore,” his person wrote. Abundance was restored to an old dog’s life.

Bailey, a dog with issues around food and females because she had neither been fed nor nurtured by her mother, was “on” for the Earth Element Repatterning statement, “I use others to get money.”  Colostrum (a form of milk rich in nutrients and antibodies that is produced by females in late pregnancy and just after giving birth, something that Bailey never received) came up as her Positive Action. In answer to my question about how she reacted to the colostrum, Bailey’s person responded, “better than peanut butter.” Her person also said, “Bailey is much more attentive to me, less competitive and far less edgy.” No longer was Bailey using her person to get “money,” a word that, in Bailey’s case, can be interpreted as a total lack of abundance that impacted both of their lives which was triggered by Bailey’s unconscious patterns.

In scientific circles, the word “abundance” describes how the relative commonality of an element – wood, fire, earth, water and metal – is measured. How much abundance there might be in honey I have no idea, but my friend, who was head of the Department of Physiology and Biochemistry at the University of East Africa, certainly would. What he didn’t know was how to be a beekeeper when he asked me to do a session for a hive that had been moved to a new and strange location, and the bees were having difficulty adjusting. The session’s “gift” for the bees was: “We rely on our communal strength, abilities and unerring instincts for our survival, we create harmony and abundance in our environment, and we resonate and cooperate with the hopes and dreams of our new beekeeper.” That’s exactly what happened. As my friend reported exultantly, “The repatterned bees are eating us out of house and home. Whereas they used to be happy with one jar of syrup in three days, the little darlings now finish it to the last drop between sunrise and sunset, and look for more!”

Can’t you just visualize those bees and the honey they went on to produce in such abundance? Two thousand years ago, the Chinese Law of Abundance was based on the technique of visualization, which played a pivotal role in a session I did on September 17, 2001 for a male cat named Papoose. According to his person, Papoose was paralyzed by fear as the result of all the renovation going on in his new home. Muscle checking indicated that someone else needed to be proxied into Papoose’s session. To my surprise, that someone turned out to be the rescue dogs who were working at “ground zero” in New York City. In one of the session’s modalities, I had to visualize Papoose offering a message of love and strength to those rescue dogs.

For part of his Positive Action, his person had to sit down with Papoose on two occasions and visualize him as the Commander in Chief of the rescue dogs while sending white light to them from him. The second part of his Positive Action involved something that I hesitated to mention, a name change for Papoose that would project a more confident image out into the world.

“We already have!” his person said when I told her. “Not only is there a definite shift in his energy, but Papoose is now Sher Khan. In the ancient languages of northern India it means Lion King, and he loves it!”

Abundance comes in many forms and guises. It can creep unobtrusively into all our lives, including animals’, on little cat feet, or it can charge in with the force of a stampeding herd of buffalo. A part of all our lives it most definitely is whether we’re human or animal. However we might visualize or interpret abundance, animals seem to be in the catbird seat. With nary a thought for money or financial success, animals live in abundance. They live in the here and now.
