The power of beliefs

When you hear the word belief what does it make you think of? Chances are it is religious beliefs. For millennia religious wars have raged because people are intolerant of others belief systems and want theirs to be the one true belief. Religion is still used today by many people as a way to dominate and control others.

We are all aware that people can be very protective of their beliefs as they form the foundation of their lives and any challenge to them can be seen as threatening.  But what many people do not realise is the power beliefs have to shape our lives in ways we are not consciously aware of.

EFT Sussex

You are a powerful creator who has created your world from your beliefs

The truth is you are all living in your own worlds created by your beliefs. These beliefs are based on your past experience, your conditioning, other people’s perceptions you have absorbed as your own and the collective unconscious. The part of our unconscious mind that’s derived from ancestral memory and experience that you regularly access in your dreams.

Rupert Sheldrake talks about Morphic Fields as energetic information that surrounds all life forms and control their characteristic activities through repetition of thought and behaviour. When we understand that our thoughts and behaviour are controlled by our beliefs. We can see how our beliefs contribute to our own Morphic Fields and the more energy we give those beliefs through repetition of living from them the more power they have over our lives.

 

You are a powerful creator

You are in fact a powerful creator who has created your world from your beliefs about yourself. But the good news is in the same way you’ve managed to create a life from your self-limiting beliefs. You can choose to shift your unconscious choices to conscious ones and create a life from positive beliefs about yourself. Close your eyes and imagine what that might look like?

Matrix Reimprinting helps you find those core self-limiting beliefs often created in childhood during an emotionally challenging or traumatic moment. As a child you are the centre of your world and need to have an explanation of why particular events happen to you. Often the reasons you create involve blaming yourself in someway. You decide you are not good enough, not lovable, not worthy, bad, wrong the list goes on. What you don’t realise as a child is from the moment the belief has been formed you begin creating your life from it.

 

Your beliefs are thought forms you send into the Matrix

The reason these beliefs are so powerful is because they are programmed into your subconscious mind and you have no conscious awareness of them in your day-to-day lives. In the quantum understanding of the universe everything is part of the divine Matrix, a field of energy transformation and manifestation that permeates and connects all life forms. Your beliefs are thought forms you send out into the matrix that you attract back as life experiences. In other words if you have a belief you are not good enough on a subconscious level you are constantly looking for validation of the truth of your belief so you can be ‘right’.

From a survival perspective this is a way of keeping you safe because you are still influenced by your ancestors fear of change as for them change was a real threat to their survival. The problem is when you act from your limiting belief it locks you into a cycle of limitation and restriction because every time you experience your belief being ‘true’ you reinforce it in your own Morphic field and the Matrix.

The only way to change those subconscious beliefs is by finding the memories where they originated. Releasing the emotional energy that is holding them in place in the Matrix and creating new positive beliefs.

 

Collapse the ‘table top’ of memories based on a self-limiting belief

It may seem a daunting prospect to go back to all those painful memories to clear them one by one. But with EFT and Matrix Reimprinting we use the table top metaphor to show that once you remove the table legs of the most emotionally intense memories. The whole table top of similar memories based on a particular belief collapses.

EFT Sussex

Creating positive beliefs opens up new pathways in life

Once you connect with the power of the energetic universe within yourself. You are able to work with this energy in a proactive way, releasing pain and sadness and making space for new positive beliefs and the emotions they create. From this place you will find new pathways and directions begin to reveal themselves and as you open and expand your inner world you will find your outer world begins to do the same.

How Matrix Reimprinting can help you change your beliefs to change your life

It can be a challenge to describe what Matrix Reimprinting is and how it works. Talking about quantum physics and energy can leave some people cold or confused so one of the best ways I find is to share people’s experiences during their sessions (with permission of course).

Over the weekend I was fortunate enough to work with Robert at the mind, body, spirit fair in Hove. Robert explained his issue was that he was feeling anxiety because he worked in a stressful environment and would often find himself feeling overwhelmed with all he had to do. He also felt the need to take on his colleagues work as well to ‘make sure it got done in time’. As is common in a highly stressful corporate environment his anxiety was increased because he felt if he didn’t finish everything in time his performance would be judged.

 

Tapping on anxiety

We began with classic EFT tapping on Robert’s anxiety in his stomach. Even though anxiety is what we call a global issue by tapping on it we were able to unlock some more specific feelings around his situation at work. Whilst tapping on global issues can bring some relief for EFT to be really effective we need to tap on specific emotional, sensory or physical details usually encapsulated in a memory.

 

The colour of emotions

Sometimes in an EFT session we will use colour to help connect with the emotion that’s come up. Colour is energy and helps us connect directly to the subconscious. Often in a session when our client says the colour is changing it is a sign they are releasing emotion and this is what happened with Robert.  As the session progressed the anxiety in his stomach shifted and became a pain in his lower back. This is also common occurrence in an EFT session as we begin shifting energy it can move around the body.

 

The emotional cause of lower back pain

The pain in Robert’s lower back was a clue for me that at some point in his life he had not felt supported and when I mentioned this to him it made Robert think about feeling responsible. At this point he made a leap across time when a childhood memory surfaced. In this memory he was 9 years old, his mum and dad had just split up and he was feeling the weight of responsibility of looking after his mum.

 

Uncovering a core belief

Once we had identified where he had first felt this feeling of responsibility earlier in his life. I was able to help Robert step into the memory and tap on his younger self to enable him to let go of the emotions connected to feeling responsible and to uncover the core belief that he had to look after his mum which led to him feeling he had to look after everyone at work.

Matrix Reimprinting helps you create a picture that reflects new positive beliefs about yourself

 

Creating a new positive picture

Robert could now see how this belief formed when he was 9 years old, was still controlling his behaviour at work and probably in other situations ever since. He was then able to help the younger self change that belief to one that supported a more healthy approach to his work so he would no longer feel anxiety because he could choose not to take on his colleague’s responsibility to get their work done on time.

We then invited Robert’s younger self to create a new positive picture to replace the old memory and reinforce this new realisation. At the end of the session he felt a weight had been lifted and his anxiety had gone.

The real power of Matrix Reimprinting is in its ability to help you uncover the limiting beliefs that you have been unconsciously creating your life from often since childhood. Once you identify the limiting beliefs that have been controlling your behaviour you are free to create new beliefs that expand your possibilities and opportunities in life. By healing the past you really can transform your future.

Using EFT to learn the language of emotions

If someone asked you what’s the main way people communicate with each other the chances are you’d say talking. There is a lot of emphasis on learning the spoken word and of course it’s a very important aspect of human communication. However it may surprise you to know talking is only responsible for 7% of our communication, especially when you consider how much talking we all do.  In fact 55% of communication is visual (body language and eye contact) and 38% is vocal (tone of voice, pitch, speed and volume)

 

People talking

Talking is only responsible for 7% of communication

 

Communicating with our emotions

There is another language much less recognised but equally important and that is the language of emotions. As children we are much more connected to our emotional state unable to hide what we are feeling in the moment. In our society however, emotions are often seen as a weakness and as our conditioning takes over we are taught that being ‘too emotional’ is not a desirable way of behaving and so we learn to censor ourselves to fit in and be ‘normal’.

This conditioning means we can become very disconnected from our true feelings and when we face a challenge in our lives that is emotionally upsetting we are taught to suppress those feelings rather than express and release them. Although a certain amount of emotional censorship is necessary for society to function effectively. Unfortunately for many people suppressing their emotions over a period of time can lead to mental or physical illness and disease.

 

Emotions are recorded at a cellular level

Ignoring emotions does not mean they go away. Instead they go into the body ‘recorded’ at a cellular level and stay there until such time as they are released. But as we are not taught how to effectively do this the average person is carrying around layers of emotions from all of their traumatic experiences from childhood or even previous life times.

 

Our emotional environment affects our genes

The importance of the mind-body connection is being increasingly accepted and new sciences such as Epigenetics are able to show that both the emotional ‘environment’ of our inner world and our physical environment can have either a positive or negative impact on the health of our genes. For this reason it’s important to be aware of what emotional environment you are creating on a daily basis.

Is it one filled with positive thoughts that bring a feeling of joy and love into your heart or is it one filled with thoughts that have a negative impact on your health and wellbeing? Chances are it’s the latter and everyday you are creating an internal environment filled with thoughts and emotions that are keeping you from an optimum state of health and wellbeing whilst at the same time blocking your authentic self, in fact you may not even know who this self is.  This is where energy psychology therapies such as EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique) and Matrix Reimprinting, a recent and very powerful evolution of EFT can be very helpful.

 

Onion Heart

Peeling away the layers of emotions

 

Peeling the onion

EFT and Matrix Reimprinting are powerful therapies that enable you to learn the language of your emotions.  As you tap on an issue and connect with what physical sensation it creates in your body you go on a unique journey that involves peeling away the layers of emotions that are causing this block in your meridian energy system, a network of pathways and energy points that run through your body.

We call this the onion effect and what EFT is really good at is helping you identify your emotions as part of the process of peeling away those layers that are blocking you from connecting with your original being of peace and love. Once the layers have been removed Matrix Reimprinting can be used to help you re-connect with your authentic self by healing the younger parts of you that have been holding these emotions for many years.

 

Shine the light of your authentic self

Taking the time to learn the language of emotions using EFT can literally change your life. Instead of remaining stuck in a place, job, relationship that is no longer working for you or perhaps never was. You can clear the layers of emotion and self-limiting beliefs caused by them that are keeping you stuck.

The wonderful thing is once they have been cleared you are free to shine the bright light of your authentic self into the world and begin to consciously create your life in a way that works for you.

It is only when you begin living from this state of being that you will see your outer world transform as it begins to reflect your light back to you.

Tapping into the power of dreams with EFT

EFT for dreams

Tapping into the power of dreams with EFT

Dreams are a doorway into the unconscious mind we access when we are asleep. Although we may not always remember them we are dreaming every night with the majority of people having between 3 to 5 dreams a night. Dreams act as a kind of pressure gauge allowing us to process feelings and emotions we may not be consciously aware of in our waking life. As such they can be used for healing as our unconscious mind is helping us process unresolved emotions as it works towards making us whole again.

Feelings are the fabric of dreams

Dreams are an undervalued resource but the language of dreams is very powerful and worth investing time in learning. Taken literally dreams can seem confusing and strange and there are many dream interpretation books available that explain the psychological meaning of elements in your dream. Whilst they are useful they only give definitions for individual dream elements. The most important aspect though is the feelings experienced by the dreamer during the dream as they are the fabric that connect all the different elements and hold the key to interpreting the dream correctly. But there is another way we can effectively work with dreams- we can tap on them.

Dream Tapping

When we have a particularly vivid dream or a recurring dream we can use tapping to help us understand what the dream is really about and what our unconscious mind is trying to communicate to us. Jungian dream analysis is based on the idea that all elements in the dream are parts of our psyche.  By re-entering a dream and tapping on dream symbols your conscious mind can enter into a dialogue with the unconscious parts of you who may have been previously ignored or denied. Using dream tapping you create a connection between these two brain wave states whilst you are awake. By doing this you are learning to communicate with the vast database of knowledge that is the unified energy field. This is the knowledge of your higher self or soul self.

 

Dream Tapping

Using EFT to tap into the knowledge of your higher self

 

Dreams connect us to source

When we dream we return to source energy and the brain is using symbols from the collective unconscious to represent your thoughts and feelings. This is why you can find yourself dreaming about a place, a person or an experience you have not had in your current lifetime. This is a way everyone can understand and experience the interconnectedness of everything. Your dreams will follow where your daily consciousness is focusing so the state of your dreams is a good way to measure whether your subconcious thoughts are predominantly positive or negative. This is important because it’s our subconscious thoughts that are impacting energetically on our lives and can either be supporting or blocking our progress on our desired life path.

Working with emotional metaphors

We don’t have to wait until we are asleep to access these dream symbols we can also use tapping to connect us to the higher dimensional energies that dreams also originate from. When we work metaphorically with emotional energy we are using the language of dreams to transform it. We can also use tapping to tune into positive dreams where we feel joy, happiness, love and peace to begin working with this soul energy in a deeper way. Bringing it from the dream world into our waking reality. This is the energy used in Matrix Reimprinting sessions to create the new picture we send out from our heart.

Dreams are a doorway to our inner power

In this time of rapid transition and change it has never been more important to transform and release fear-based emotions from our dreams and be sending positive emotions and images out from our hearts into the world. Many of us have been sleepwalking through life disconnected from our inner power to transform our lives and our world. Dreams are a doorway to that inner power and connection to source energy. It is time for us to start using this power wisely.

Tuning into a higher consciousness

 

Science has proved that we are surrounded by different types of electromagnetic waves. There are radio waves, infrared, microwaves, x-rays, gamma rays and ultraviolet that we can’t see and visible light that we can see as colours of the rainbow. Even though we cannot see microwaves we know that something is creating the heat that cooks our food and when we press the remote control the channel changes on the television although infrared is not visible to the human eye. Just because we cannot see it doesn’t mean it isn’t real.

 

Thoughts and emotions are energy

In this energetic universe we live in there are many different types of energy we can tune into. Although we cannot see them we experience them through our other senses. Thoughts and emotions are forms of energy we are sending out constantly that impact on ourselves and other people. We also experience them physically as feelings in our body.

 

Tuning into the energy of love 

Imagine you are like a radio and that during this time of shifting consciousness you have a choice about which type of energy you tune into. You can continue tuning into the mainstream media’s energy of lack and fear that can keep you stuck in a place that is no longer relevant to you or you can choose to tune into a higher vibrational energy of healing and love as you move towards your awakened state.

When we use EFT to tap into the matrix of energy, not only are we tapping into emotional, mental and sensory information we are also tapping into the higher dimensional energy of love. It is this energy of love we use to create our new positive picture that we send out into the universe from our hearts during the session.

You can choose to tune into the higher vibrational energy of love

 

The human energy field

If you think this is fluffy spiritual nonsense think again. Scientists are now able to measure our aura or ‘human energy field’ proving that we emit our own waves of energy. The Institute of Heartmath Research Center has been researching the electromagnetic field of the heart and how it communicates with the brain for the last two decades. What they have discovered is the heart has an electromagnetic energy field 60 times greater than that of the brain and affects every cell in the body. They have also shown how the electromagnetic fields of our hearts communicate with each other and how connecting with positive heart felt emotions has a beneficial effect on our physical health and wellbeing and those we are connected to.

 

Emerging higher consciousness

When we send our new positive picture from our heart out into the matrix we are making our own important contribution to the emerging higher consciousness of love. By releasing our emotional pain and opening our hearts we are creating an opportunity not only to heal ourselves but also to heal each other and the earth on which all life depends.

A free heart is a happy heart

The healing path is the way back to your heart.

In life you will find many pathways to choose from. You may try different routes and travel far but only the healing path helps you find your way back to your heart…

This healing journey can be challenging as we navigate the emotionally painful experiences we will inevitably face in our lives. It doesn’t help that in our society showing emotion is considered to be a sign of weakness so we are taught to suppress and deny emotions rather than express and release them.

But often these challenging and painful experiences lead to us closing our heart to protect us as we fear being hurt again. Whilst it’s an understandable strategy to avoid further pain, emotions are energy and for us to stay healthy they need to flow otherwise suppressed emotions will eventually manifest as physical symptoms and disease in the body. It also disconnects us from our hearts guidance and wisdom. It is our heart that is our creative centre and it needs to be open for us to tap into our connection with the creative intelligence of the cosmos.

Free your heart with EFT and Matrix Reimprinting 

This is why freeing your heart from the emotional pain of the past is so important. Emotional Freedom Technique and Matrix Reimprinting, a recent evolution of EFT are two revolutionary therapies from the emerging field of energy psychology that can help set you free from the pain of the past and open your heart to the joys of life again. They combine talking therapy with the eastern meridian energy system and are often referred to as ‘emotional acupuncture’ or ‘tapping’.

By focusing on your emotional issue whilst tapping on a sequence of meridian points on the head, upper body and hands you connect simultaneously with mental, emotional, sensory and higher dimensional information and energy within the subconscious mind to find the memories that are the root cause, clear the stuck energy that you’ve been carrying around often for many years and create new positive images in your subconscious mind. These positive images not only make us feel better emotionally but in studies undertaken by the Institute of Heart Math Research Center it has been proven that positive emotions also boost our immune system and so improve our physical health.

Co-creating with the universe

When you release the energetic blocks that have been holding you back and open your heart you are able to use this freed energy as a positive power source to begin co-creating with the universe, growing in new directions and creating what you desire in your life.

A free heart is a happy heart…

Developing fear consciousness with Matrix Reimprinting

Fear protects us

It’s important to remember that fear is a natural and necessary part of our survival response that protects us from dangerous situations in life. However it can become a problem when it stops us doing the things we want to do life and keeps us stuck in our comfort zone. Often our fears lies in our past experiences where we where hurt unexpectedly but there are other types of fear we need to be aware of.

Origin of fear

Knowing the origin of our fears is the first step towards working with them consciously. Are we feeling fear based on our own past experience in a particular lifetime or is our fear part of our conditioning from the collective ‘fear-mind’? We live in a society where this fear-mind is all pervading with the behaviour of mainstream media, politicians and corporations reinforcing it on a daily basis.

There is a huge fear of lack in our society and often we find others projecting their own fears onto us. If we are not mindful of this we can find many of our thoughts and decisions in life are based on this fear. Fear closes us down and limits our options as our fearful thoughts create deeply ingrained neural pathways that are reinforced through repetition. This is part of the challenge in these times of shifting consciousness, awakening from fear-based living so we can begin living from the heart. It is our heart that is our creative centre and it needs to be open for us to tap into our connection with the creative intelligence of the cosmos.

The Scream

Developing fear consciousness with Matrix Reimprinting

Matrix Reimprinting can help us develop our fear consciousness by leading us to the origin of our fears. This empowering knowledge allows us to be more aware of what triggers our fear. Being able to identify whether our fear comes from our own life experience or perhaps a pre-conscious fear we may have absorbed from our mother in the womb or even the primal fear all humans feel can help us target it more effectively with EFT. Clearing our fear based energy blocks means we free our energy so we can use it in a more open, creative loving way that enhances our lives and attracts people towards us.

New pathways of possibility

The leaf has many pathways of veins because it needs to maximise the amount of water and nutrients it gets from the environment to help it grow and survive. In a similar way we need to ensure our thinking doesn’t get stuck traveling down the same limited routes but stays open to new pathways of thought that provide the nourishment of new ideas and possibilities for life.

New pathways of possibility and positivity

You can teach an old dog new tricks

Einstein said we cannot solve our problem with the same mind set that created it so it follows we need new ways of thinking to replace our old negative thought patterns. The old view was that ‘a leopard can’t change it’s spots or ‘you can’t teach an old dog new tricks’ both great examples of limiting thoughts that make you believe the brain is a compartmentalized static machine and once ‘thought pathways’ are deeply ingrained change is not possible. However the science of neural plasticity has found the brain is actually a highly adaptable and dynamic organ capable of generating new neurons and new neural pathways. This means limiting patterns of thought and behaviour; that often have their origins in childhood; can be replaced by more positive ones and this is exactly what happens during a matrix session.

We know the subconscious mind seeks to protect us by triggering our amygdala when it reads a situation as a threat to our survival but over time we can find this becomes a problem when we are held back by fears from our past, remaining stuck in patterns of thought that reinforce the neural pathways which both create and perpetuate those fears.

21 days to create new neural pathways

These patterns of thought contribute to our morphic fields. These are fields that organize our characteristic activity and behaviour and the more often we repeat these behaviours the stronger our fields become. This is why it’s important to reimprint your new positive picture for 21 days because that’s the time it takes for new neural pathways to form and to ensure the old pathways to the negative memory you worked on break down. The more you bring that new memory to mind and send it out into the matrix the stronger your new positive field will become.

Field of attraction

Another reason to reimprint the image for 21 days is that strong emotions help imprint new patterns of thought and strengthen neural networks. We can use the same ability the survival brain has to imprint an emotionally traumatic experience in the subconscious to help us avoid the situation again to reinforce the positive emotions attached to our new picture. Experiencing the image with all five senses touch, sound, smell, sight and taste helps make it as real as possible which also has a strengthening effect. Once we replace the negative images in our field with more positive ones we begin to attract more life-enhancing experiences towards us that reflect these new positive images and in turn strengthen our positive field of attraction.  If you build it they will come.

Healing is believing

I tried many therapies on my healing journey and the reason I chose to train in EFT and Matrix Reimprinting is because they are about empowering people. I think the most important gift that can be given is a belief in the power to heal yourself because we all have an innate ability but are not taught how to use this. Especially in western society where too often we give our power away to medical professionals who are focused solely on physical symptoms that only tell part of the story.

We are also disempowered by western media and it’s steady, unrelenting stream of fear pumped out through the main media channels because the physiological and psychological responses to fear keep us thinking small and easy to manipulate. We have lived this way for a long time relying on the big systems of governments and corporations to ‘look after us’ feed us, clothe us, cure us and in doing so gave a way our power. More people are waking up to the high price we have paid for the comfort and convenience provided by industrial society in the form of increased alcoholism, depression, cancer, obesity, smoking related diseases, environmental and body pollution from chemical drugs and toiletries, preservatives and pesticides to name a few.

That’s just the way it is

Many of us conditioned since birth to believe this is the only way to live, that’s ‘just the way it is’. But we have created this ‘reality’ ourselves and we can create a new reality through changing the way we think and behave. We have the power to change the content and direction of our lives with our thoughts. EFT and Matrix re-imprinting are healing processes for our times, helping us heal from the fear, anxiety and stress that has been both created and driven by the dominant belief system of consumption we have all been conditioned to follow.

Our real needs

It is time for us to admit there are other ‘basic needs’ beyond food and shelter that have not been met by consumer society, needs that have been ignored, denied and even ridiculed. The need to feel free, to explore, to be creative, the need to feel self love and acceptance, the need to share our deeper feelings about life including the often denied feelings of fear, loneliness and anxiety, the need to share our truth whatever it may be and be heard, the need to have time and space to be ourselves not being on a relentless never ending tread mill of production at the expense of our own energy and the resources and energy of the earth, the need for hugs, love, affection and friendship, the need to learn and grow, the need for support, the need to be healthy, the need to look after our well  being, the need to feel connected to the earth, the need to feel an important part of this ongoing planetary evolution, the need to feel like we matter, the need to feel gratitude for our lives, the need to feel compassion for others, to care for all life forms that are part of the web of life, the need to understand we are a thread in the web not the masters of it. These needs are universal to all humans.

Outer change starts within

Inner change is the first step to creating a different world, our inner and outer worlds are completely connected and affected by each other. We have the power to make new rules, create a different belief system one that honours and values life, that sees the beauty in the natural world, the ingenuity which we humans can never hope to surpass, the intelligence in nature that we have turned away from in our desire to control our world and make nature our slave and in doing so we have enslaved ourselves.  We need to feel the love that it has for us, we are the children of the earth not the masters and everything we have is what our parent earth has given us. For too long we have been taking with no thought for the harm we’ve been doing, showing no gratitude and offering nothing in return.

Heal the earth through healing yourself

We have been taught to participate in the consumer belief system that is based on ruining the ecosystems of the planet on which all life is dependant. Many books have been written, many activists have exhausted themselves but still the majority continue on this path. We have lost our ability to visualise another way of living, we think it’s about going backwards or ‘giving up’ our material comforts. But if we can see it as an opportunity to begin living from our true nature as multifaceted and connected energetic beings with mental, emotional and spiritual bodies in addition to the physical one we are conditioned to focus on. We can begin to envision a new way of living in harmony with each other and the planet. As each individual commits to healing him or herself they are simultaneously helping to heal the rest of humanity and our relationship with the earth.

Pictures from the heart

When we re-imprint a new image during a Matrix Reimprinting session we are making use of the mind-heart connection the Institute for HeartMath Research has spent the past 20 years studying. Traditionally scientific research has focused on the signals the brain sends to the heart. However the HeartMath research has shown that the brain and the heart have a dynamic, two-way communication where each organ is influencing the other. They have found the heart communicates with the brain in four ways neurologically (through the transmisson of nerve impulses) biochemically (via hormones and neurotransmitters), biophysically (through pressure waves) and energetically (through electromagnetic field interactions).

The studies show that the heart has the most powerful electromagnetic field in the human body. In fact the heart’s electrical field is 60 times greater in amplitude than that of the brain and changes depending on our emotional state. It has also been shown that The many different studies they have undertaken demonstrate that intentionally creating a positive feeling state in your heart changes the communication between the heart and the brain enabling people to achieve significant shifts of perception, reach states of increased mental clarity, heightened intuitive awareness and influence the emotional state of those close to them.

The hearts electromagnetic field transmits information that can affect the brain waves of another person.

 

Sending out positive emotions from your heart to the field

During a Matrix session we support this mind-heart connection in a way that allows people to shift their perceptions about the issue they are working with and use their intuition to guide them in creating a new positive picture filled with positive emotions. This picture is then reimprinted in the Matrix using the powerful energy field of their heart allowing them to reach a place of resolution and healing. When they send the image back into the field through their hearts they are also positively changing the energy fields of others who have been involved in their healing journey in the Matrix.

It can be useful to create a representation of your picture, perhaps write a description, sketch it or find an object that represents it you so you can bring it into the physical world as a reminder of the positive transformation that has taken place and a doorway to return to that picture and the positive feelings contained within it anytime you feel the need.
