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

Learning From the Inside Out

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!

MP910216413[1]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!
