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

I have been on a wonderful journey for the past 9 months exploring the possibilities of training students in Resonance Repatterning ONLINE. My adult son was actually the catalyst for this movement into a new paradigm. I was talking with him about seminar attendance being down these past couple of years and brainstorming with him about it. He asked who I wanted in my classes. I responded that I was interested in students of all ages. His response was immediate; “you need to offer Resonance Repatterning ONLINE”. His generation cut their teeth online. If I wanted to reach younger students, this option would draw them in. They might not be as receptive to taking a class in person. I also started thinking about busy people in general, regardless of their age. What about people who live in remote areas where classes are not scheduled or in other countries? Were there prospective students who might prefer another option to the traditional weekend schedule of “in person” trainings. Would they appreciate not having to leave their families, fly to a location, book a hotel room and spend their weekend in a meeting room?
The model I have been using for the past 18 years has been wonderful and I intend to continue offering “in person” trainings on location. I love traveling and meeting new people all around the world. They enjoy getting to know each other, bonding and entraining while learning Resonance Repatterning. Yet the classes have been decreasing not growing. Would another choice expand the wonderful experiences I had while teaching in the traditional way? Could we make it work? Would the students feel the power of the work, the connection to me and each other ONLINE?
So I began my journey to find out. I initially contacted Carolyn Winter last July asking her to partner with me in this venture. I needed someone who knew the process and could handle the technology involved. I was thrilled when she said yes! Then I spoke with Chloe and she fully supported this option so Carolyn and I began doing sessions to resonate with our new possibility. Carolyn researched video conferencing options. We were familiar with Skype but I was not happy with the quality I had experienced. I am a stickler for lip synching being “on.” This led Carolyn to VSEE and we have both been very pleased by the quality of this video conferencing option. The only drawback currently is the limited number of students who can be in the ONLINE classroom at one time. Yet it has been a blessing in our pilot series. We have been learning as we go and our group has weathered any challenge the technology gave us. One student said after the Empowering Yourself seminar:
“This on-line class with Ardis Ozborn and Carolyn Winter was first class from a content as well as a presentation perspective. Ardis’ understanding of Resonance Repatterning is profound and she conveys the information and exercises precisely and patiently. Carolyn, an exceptional practitioner in her own right, was the technical support for this course and kept us all connected for an amazing 8 hours! The inaugural class had a few understandable glitches that allowed us all to learn more about the VSEE format. Ardis and Carolyn make a seamless team and I enthusiastically look forward to the next installment!
I appreciated that feedback, and it confirmed that the personal experience ONLINE was comparable to the “in person” seminars. The added benefit to this group of students was being able to maintain their busy lives and practices while learning something new. I received this feedback after the Fundamentals class:
“Ardis and Carolyn have done it again… created a virtual learning environment that is as enriching as being there in person. From a technical perspective, the class exists on your computer screen: you see all your classmates as well as the instructor, Ardis and her first mate, Carolyn! Interacting is as easy as raising your hand to add something or ask for clarification. We even get up to stretch or perform a repatterning modality, while Ardis demonstrates. And when the munchies hit, a snack is as close as my home kitchen. The convenience, the financial savings and the coziness of curling up with a blanket on the couch while absorbing fascinating material are very hard to beat. And, to top it all, my cat Lizzie, is an honorary class member! She sometimes clicks me out, obscures my screen or otherwise hogs the show, but how great is that, that I can bring her to class?! Fundamental’s expands on the Empowering class and I have been able to immediately apply the Resonance Repatterning process at this level to any issue that arises for me or family members and for my coaching clients as well. I am eagerly awaiting the next segments.”
We have received inquiries from Europe, Israel and South Africa so we have designed a schedule for our international students to begin in September and finish in March 2014. With this group we will be teaching on their time schedule. It will be dinner time for them and morning for me! We will be meeting Tuesday and Thursday evenings much like a traditional college or university course. This will be another great journey that will undoubtedly have its own learning curve. As long as we are learning we are living.
The success of our ONLINE pilot program has made it apparent to me that growing our community sometimes requires thinking “outside the box.” To that end I will be offering ONLINE observations, which has been approved by the RPA certification committee, to students interested in becoming certified. It is also open to students who want tutoring and an opportunity to have their questions answered. I have been offering in person group observations for the past 18 years. I usually do these in the areas I travel to for my seminars. Students find it helpful on many levels. It is great to watch someone give a session and then learn from their feedback. This will allow me to support student practitioners from all over the country on their path toward certification. Another exciting journey!
We all have fond memories of our version of the little school room. It is exciting to realize that the internet has opened the classroom doors to allow learning at a new and exciting level. I look forward to connecting with you!

The world wide web provides so many avenues of learning and getting information these days. Facts are at our fingertips. There are even websites to verify the facts. In grade school and high school, I remember having to access a set of Britannica Encyclopedias or needing to go to the library to get information. It took hours to research for a paper that was due the following week. Today, I can get information instantaneously using my cell phone! What a difference!
Growing up I remember that one of the ways to get acknowledgement and a pat on the back was to get good grades. You may have also heard something like, “Good job, you got 3 B’s, 1 A and 1 C. Now let’s bring everything up and keep the A.” Then perhaps came the bribes, “For every A you get $15, every B you get $10 and C’s get $5.” I know for me, it set up a conclusion that my value came from getting good grades, so I went to work memorizing to make sure I got goods grades rather than really learning. It was so rote and tedious: flash cards, 3×5 cards, repetition, and re-reading, re-writing notes. I remember having to work so hard for my grades while others in the class goofed around, did not even take their books home, and got the same grade I did. Not fair!
What I realize today on reflection, my previous experience of learning was clouded with expectations from my parents, not a genuine thirst for knowledge. I remember not even enjoying reading because it was associated with needing to remember what I was reading, comprehending, and then applying it to some answer on a test. It is rather ironic because today my passion for learning is enormous, “I can’t get enough.”
As I evaluate the difference from learning growing up and learning as an adult, I realize that my learning today comes from a desire in my heart to get as much knowledge as I can to help my clients and myself, where as before it was to receive recognition from an outside source, my parents.
I remember having a session with a NLP practitioner recently. I wrote a book couple years ago called, “What Would Love Do Right Now?” and I really felt stuck with editing the book for publication. He had me do what I call a gestalt with the ‘already published, out on the shelves’ book. I put the book in a chair out in front of me and realized that the book itself had a release date and –within it–all the information I needed to have it actually released by that date. Then I slowly walked toward the chair and sat in the chair. I allowed myself to grasp all the information the energy of the book had for me. I accessed a place of oneness of some sort, the ‘one mind’ where all knowledge and wisdom is. Then I slowly walked backward, looking at the published book as I came back to my chair. I realized that I now had within me the time-line, the final draft of the book and the confidence that I had all the answers I needed. Since then I have created a visual time-line with the release date and what needs to be done by when, regarding the book. The ‘to do’s’ at every stage are much more manageable because they are in small chunks rather than having the whole book’s ‘everything to do’ right on my lap. This is one way you might ‘learn’ by accessing the ‘matrix morphogenic field, ’ where all knowledge and wisdom is. Try it when you need information to empower yourself to accomplish something you previously thought was overwhelming. Alternatively, try it with simple information you need or want. Let me know how it works for you. It has made such a big difference in my life.
As Resonance Repatterning® Practitioners, we use what I call the ‘innate wisdom’ within the client to not only direct the session, but to access the knowledge of what the unconscious patterns are that keep the client from having what they want in life. I suspect that we are accessing the ‘one mind’ within the client. How cool is that! As practitioners, we can now relax, knowing the client has all the answers within, and we can create the sacred space they need to go deep, trusting the process to allow the old patterns to surface to be transformed into new ways of being in the world.
Learning from within, trusting that you have all the answers inside, can be very liberating and empowering. As you experiment with doing this more often, your ability to trust and act on the information will be easier. Your intuitive connection with ‘all there is’ will be enhanced and your dance through life can be an adventure, filled with curiosity and wonder! Enjoy!

Healers, creative types, solo-preneurs, and many women shy away from attention and being seen.
You, too? If you’re afraid of getting attention, being “too big” or “too visible,” this will hold you back from success in business, attracting a mate, and even in being seen and heard in your family and working life.
A few years ago I did the Nun Karma Repatterning on myself and the pattern of “invisibility” came up. Suddenly I saw how I was operating under the radar and mostly invisibly. I was working at home on the phone, doing much of my marketing online. I didn’t stand up in front of people often and I never “tooted my own horn.” I rarely spoke to people about my work. It wasn’t helping my business grow and I was too isolated. The pattern of “invisibility” was my hologram, and it was everywhere in my life.
That took me through a two-year clearing journey, including becoming a teacher of the Art of Feminine Presence. What I’ve been learning is that what draws people to work with you goes beyond having a great website or elevator speech–it’s your presence.
As women, we have a built-in advantage in this area–if we are comfortable with being and expressing our Feminine Presence. It can be part of our power–but this is power defined in a whole new way. It’s not about being like a man . . . isn’t that a relief?
A naturally confident woman is noticed when she enters a room. With her Feminine Presence “turned on,” she is magnetic, grounded, easily heard and gets our attention–without being flashy, loud or aggressive. Both men and women are drawn to be around her—it just feels good!
This presence, this confidence communicates to others “I am open and receptive to your attention–and I welcome it. I feel safe to be heard–and to take up space. I can express my feelings, thoughts and point of view without shrinking and I have something important to say.” This attitude, this stance, shows up in what we say, how we move, what we do in our business, and how we relate to people. It even comes through our written words, our voice on the phone and in audios, and on videotape.
These days it’s a lot harder to stand out in the crowd–there are many more people offering energy healing, coaching and holistic services. Having a powerful method is great, but we must go much further than that to really get attention. Developing your presence, having the courage and confidence to be seen and heard is more important than ever.
It’s what I teach in Art of Feminine Presence classes, and it’s also the focus of my session at the Repatterning World Summit. My topic is “Confident, Clear and Courageous: step into your value and stand in the value of your work.”
Are you curious about what I mean by confidence? I see it as a two-sided coin, two different “faces” which are inseparably linked to the other:
INNER CONFIDENCE is expressed from the inside out, based on how you feel about yourself, your inner self-image, and your self-talk.
OUTER CONFIDENCE is the kind that shows in your body language and your voice. It shows in how you walk and move, and in the ways you express yourself—clearly, warmly and self-assured, without hiding or apologizing. A cool tip: You can use OUTER confidence to grow INNER confidence. Ask any performer or public speaker!
Why will having more confidence be such a great benefit to you?
With more confidence, you feel better about yourself, value your work more, express yourself more clearly and with more impact, and bring in more clients.
Confidence supports you to:
■ Know–and be able to say–what is special and unique about you;
■ Be clear about the results your clients have and that your work makes a difference in people’s lives;
■ Create services, programs and content that shine with quality and value;
■ Let go of having to be perfect and putting off your success;
■ Feel more at ease sharing your expertise as you relax into being yourself;
■ Have more ‘presence’ and enjoy more attention–people remember you;
■ Gain more of that “know-like-trust” factor that builds an audience and draws clients;
■ Enjoy marketing as a conversation and opportunity to connect with others.
GREAT STUFF, isn’t it? You might actually start enjoying marketing as it becomes more of a conversation than a sales pitch. What about having more joy, ease and heart connection with prospects, and having more FUN while attracting great new clients?
Hey…how would it be to enjoy being yourself more, in every part of your day? Now that sounds truly awesome!

Until a few short years ago, for anyone who aspired to write a book, the dream involved finding a publisher who would take it on–getting a book deal and finding your work on the shelves of books stores everywhere, promoted by the publisher.
After all, if you are over the age of 10 years in our life time, we have only known publishing to be proprietary to publishing companies, distributions channels or the mass media. The ordinary person could only buy their way into that world to be seen.
In the old paradigm, pre-2008 or so depending on your industry, to market or promote your business, as one of my favorite marketing authors–David Meerman Scott–points out, traditional marketers used strategies, such as annoying, interrupting , blasting emails, paper mailers and print advertising etc. to get your attention or that of an audience. Fortunately, its not working any more.
To put this change into perspective, David Meerman Scott asks his audiences, as I will now ask you to consider, these 3 questions:
1. When was the last time you bought something from a flyer, or a marketing robot call or similar venue?
2. When was the last time you Googled something you were going to buy, even if it was only $10.00?
3. When was the last time you bought something because a friend recommended it?
Chances are you Googled the item and definitely bought it on the recommendation of a friend.
It is now 2013 and we are squarely in the digital age. This age comes with changes as far reaching to society as the Renaissance and inventions like the printing press. There is one huge difference in these 2 revolutions–less than 1000 people took the new information, inventions and tools of the Renaissance and created the institutions we have today, such as newspapers and publishers.
In the digital age and because of the internet, we all equally have the potential to get online, use the tools and create something that ultimately defines the future of humanity . . . if, of course, we resonate with having that digital footprint, the visibility that publishing anything will bring to us.
Today we are all publishers. All of us. When we send an email, set up a social media profile, post to a Facebook feed, leave comments, write blog posts . . ., we no longer need to write a book to be seen. We do need to publish and we are all publishers. The question is do we resonate with that so that we can be favorably seen and followed?
IF you come from the old system, as most of us do, where someone controlled the information, the new system of being your own publisher for many will be unfamiliar and, depending largely on your patterns, uncomfortable.
After all it’s one thing to say, “Oh goodie! I can get a free YouTube account, Facebook, blog etc.” and yet quite another to put great content there that attracts an audience by educating and informing it rather than interrupting and selling to it. AND you probably–all of you–have great content or the potential for it, but your own personal patterns for being seen will come in the way of you and the free tools–and your audience. In fact, you may be suffering from your resonance with the OLD ‘Rules of Marketing, PR and Publishing,’ stuck in the old ways of getting your message or material out there because that is the only model we have known.
Unlike the controlled messages of the old publishing paradigm, the digital age is bringing one more very powerful aspect into being–your resonance. The frequencies you broadcast are discerned online no matter what you write. Don’t try to lie. You will be found.
Think about the last USA election, and no matter who the candidate, for me, what was plainly clear is that candidates may say whatever they like, and audiences everywhere, at every income and education level, are picking up the true vibration and chatting about it. The greater the gap between perceived vibration and spoken message is often captured with a cell phone, iphone camera or comments on the candidate’s eye movements and what they mean. Everyone is tuning into the frequency as much as material evidence.
There is one more piece I would like to add to your awareness, if you haven’t already noticed. It has to do with consciousness and your evolution as a spiritual being. The digital age compels us–to be in the ever-present moment. No one will wait for a contrived considered response; the public, your public, is constantly Googling what is relevant now. Marketers know that if they don’t respond in the moment to a news item or customer query, they have lost it. So as publishers we have to resonate with the most coherent aspects of responding in the moment as ourselves. Isn’t that the quest of spiritual evolution to become who we truly are, to live our truth, and live from a place of wholeness?
What stops us from publishing effectively in the moment is our patterns–protecting our ego, self-image, the non-coherent patterns that we have yet to heal and that we have only ever known in the old paradigm of publishing.
For myself, I remember my first experience of publishing my website. I was so embarrassed to be seen–let alone offer an alternative healing system–I could barely look at my site. That was many cleared patterns ago, many of which had to do with self-image, fear of rejection and confidence. Today I publish fearlessly–grammar mistakes and all (I hear alot about that)–but I am comfortable being who I am, conveying the messages needed to be of service and support to others, and no longer cringe with the old pattern of embarrassment. Hopefully, when people looking for answers to their problems find me, they are supported by the experience and transformed.
If you are considering an online presence, or wish to publish a book etc., I encourage you to examine the patterns underlying your blocks and apparent obstacles. Your spiritual being will evolve, you will feel more inner freedom and be in a place to share your gifts and talents with the world. Clear your patterns and your creativity; inspiration and ideas will shine through into physical form. You will have the energy to take the actions needed to complete your goal. Most importantly, the outcome will sing with a vibration that the world will hear favorably. You will ultimately be– followed!
with love and light

Do you find it difficult to establish flow, experience joy and creativity in your life and relationships?
When we find ourselves disconnected from the essence of our Divine nature, our hearts become closed and we are unable to experience bliss in every moment of our lives.
Most importantly, when we feel separated from our innate Divine connection, we often experience life as dry, isolated, lonely, meaningless and frustrating.
We focus on our breathing, our mantra, whatever we can to silence the continual stream of distracting thoughts and negative feelings that keep us from experiencing peaceful meditations and harmony in our lives.
What if the basis of enlightenment, accessing all the riches of the universe, peace, harmony and flow stems not from our minds and somewhere outside of us, but somewhere else?
Buddha said “The way is not in the sky. The way is in the heart”.
Recent research by the The Institute of HeartMath (IHM) Research Center and technological advances in how the human mind-body system is able to be studied reveals that the heart emits the strongest electromagnetic field in our body. This electromagnetic field is five thousand times stronger than the brain’s electromagnetic field; it envelops the entire body and extends out in all directions up to several feet outside of the body. Research shows that as we consciously focus on feeling a positive emotion it has a beneficial effect not only on our own health and well-being, but it also can have a positive effect on those around us.
Our hearts are the very first organ we develop in the womb. When we call our attention to the “heart of the matter” we are focusing on the essence, in fact, our essence.
The “shift of the ages,” the shift in consciousness that we are now experiencing, is a movement from duality into oneness. It invites us to live from the oneness, connectedness of all creation in our hearts.
There is a personal power in us that is only available when we move from the duality of our brains (the two hemispheres) into the unity of our hearts, our cores.
The scheduled repatterning during the World Repatterning Summit will shine light on whatever we are ready to clear from our mind-body systems so that we can move into living from our hearts and connecting there with the Divine within us all.

Reinventing ourselves comes from within. It does helps to have a planetary shift like the one we had on the winter solstice December 21, 2012. I now feel stronger than ever, I have taken more action in the last month than probably the previous three months. I am ‘on fire!’ Watch out world, here I come!
What I found necessary was to reclaim the parts of myself that I had lost, given away or given up on. I suggest you do the same. It will free you to be more authentically who YOU are out in the world. In the Resonance Repatterning® Method, this process is done by doing the ‘Fusion Modality’ where one retrieves a lost quality. If this speaks to you, many certified practitioners can assist you. Go to http://www.repatterning.org. You will find a list of practitioners there. Find someone you resonate with to help you.
I recently did a play shop called “Owning My Purpose” through a new company called Raised Vibration, http://www.raisedvibration.com. One of the exercises we did was to inquire about what we did, or how we survived our family dynamics growing up. One of the things I discovered that I did to survive, was to find out what the rules are, in order to be acceptable and to get my needs met, and follow them. I then saw that even to this day, I find out what the rules are and live within the parameters of them, even if I do not agree with them, or have to settle. Growing up, I became the ‘good girl,’ nice and pleasing. I found out what others needed and did whatever it took to make them happy–harmony at all cost!
Robert Fulghum coined the phrase in his book, “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.” Maybe it should state, “Everything I learned about how to deal with life is formulated by the time I get to kindergarten.”
In the play shop, we then distinguished what qualities we left behind to survive, like our uniqueness, our creativity, our curiosity, adventure, etc. I discovered that I left behind, my inner desires, my true authentic playful nature, my full self-expression, my dignity and most importantly my values.
We then talked about what we are passionate about, like making a difference, nature, animals, helping adopted people find their biological parents, etc. I have many passions! The four I spoke about were my passion to free people from their past and move forward to fulfill their dream; to take risks, be adventurous and playful; to be in an environment where there are wide-open spaces; and to be free to be myself.
From there, in the quietness of our inner sanctuary we created and later declared and claimed our purpose. We stood up in front of the whole group–and on camera to boot–owning our purpose. My purpose is to inspire and empower others’ greatness to live extraordinary lives! What I realized is that I am already doing that. Energy surged throughout my whole being and a rush of emotion filled my eyes. It was total validation of what I have been all about for many years.
We were then asked to pick a project to fulfill within six months that would allow us to tangibly experience our purpose and move us into unhesitating action. I could not imagine taking on yet another project, so I chose one I have wanted to complete: publishing my first book, “What Would Love Do Right Now?” It got very daunting last year, so I gave myself a sabbatical from the book. Now I am ready. I have a structure in place to fulfill my goal with support from those who love and care about me. My commitment is to have it on the shelf by August 24, 2013.
As you are moving forward reinventing yourself, be sure you are gentle with yourself and get the support you need from those who love and care about you. It will be easier than you think! If I can do it, YOU can do it too! Have fun!

This topic couldn’t be more timely for me at this time in my life. While this is the last President letter I will write for the Journal, this stepping down opens the door for me in many ways. Not just professionally as leading this Association but in my personal life.
I have been on the RPA Board for 8 years, 3 of them serving as President. It’s time for a new era of consciousness for the Association. I have written often in these articles that there must be change at the leadership level in order for us to grow and bring in the gifts of co-creation with each other. We are peers supporting peers. I have served enthusiastically on the Board and wish to pass my enthusiasm on to the next set of leaders in this association. As I leave I look forward to continuing to serve on the CEU committee. And more importantly, I look forward to supporting our new Board and wait with anticipation of how they will lead us into the future.
We are making a huge mark on the planet by putting on the RPA Summit this year. We expect that this will be the first of many annual summits and events that continue to put Resonance Repatterning® on the map and become a household name. In many ways, the RPA is reinventing itself by this huge undertaking. We are breaking free of being small, quiet, and unrecognized. WE ARE READY for this undertaking! We ARE reinventing ourselves!
Commitment to leadership has many levels at the Association. Is it time for you to reinvent yourself and serve on any committee? At the February Board meeting, the Board approved to waive some in person CEU requirements. While CEU’s enhance skills that support our Resonance Repatterning practice, some attendance or commitment to obtain CEU’s is still required. Over a 2 year period, 32 CEU’s are required to maintain certification if you are a Certified Practitioner. The Board approved that for every 3 hours of volunteer service, 2 hours can be earned towards the CEU requirement (about 21 CEU’s over a 2 year period).
We hope that this new and exciting incentive will encourage anyone who may have the capacity to step up into a leadership role.
Is it time to reinvent yourself? Is it time to give to your Association as we move into the global arena? Move with us. Lead with us.
With love, gratitude, and appreciation to the RPA Board and all those who have volunteered countless hours over the years to bring the Association to where it is today.
