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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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.


Well, surely she’s on her About page?


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.


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.


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!


On We Grow







Warm greetings from Tina Beneman in the Baltimore area.

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

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

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

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

On we grow!
Love, Tina

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.


What do you think, feel, believe, know? It will be lovely to hear from you. You can add a comment in the chat box below.
