Unlocking the treasures of the heart

EFT Brighton and Hove

 

How often do you take the time to sit quietly and really listen to your heart? With the busy lives many of us lead the chances are not very often. Our industrial society treats human beings as parts in a giant machine and there has been no place for the heart and it’s wisdom.

Instead we are taught that to be happy we must be successful and to be successful we need to work harder and harder to gain more material wealth.  I’m not saying all material wealth is bad. I like my material comforts as much as the next person but I have personally found the idea that a life of comfort and convenience is the road to happiness has not been true for me.

I found our busy noisy world was the road to stress and a breakdown. I know I am not alone. The reason everyone is so stressed is because they are following the conditioning of working harder and harder to achieve happiness through material gain and finding it’s not working. If it was working they would feel happy not stressed.

 

The origin of stress is fear

What many people fail to realise because they are too busy being stressed on the treadmill of industrial life is that stress originates from the emotion of fear. In evolutionary terms the industrial revolution happened in the blink of an eye and for many thousands of years before life evolved more slowly and the human body, mind and spirit had time to adapt.

The body is a highly adaptive survival organism that was designed with the three responses to a threat of death. Fight, flight and freeze. This programming is very strong because it had to be as back then it really could mean the difference between life and death.

 

Is stress really the way to happiness? 

In the concrete cities we now inhabit we no longer have the same type of threats to our survival but the body is still programmed to respond in this way to perceived threats. Instead of the fear of being eaten by a predator we have the fear of of being fired from our job. Instead of the fear of starvation we fear we don’t have the perfect body to be attractive and loved. The stress we experience is based on these fears of not working hard enough to be successful at our jobs, bodies, social lives and relationships. We put enormous pressure on ourselves because we were taught from childhood that this is how we’ll achieve happiness.  But can being in a fearful and stressed state really be the way to happiness?

 

Stress disconnects us from source

In a state of stress our heart rhythms become erratic. Our frontal cortex shuts down and we are unable to think clearly and solve problems. In this state we are also cut off from our connection to source through our heart and are unable to access it’s divine wisdom. As many people are in a state of fight or flight almost 24 7 they are not able to connect with their heart’s guidance and so their actions are controlled by fear and stress not love.

 

EFT helps us unlock the treasures of the heart 

If the stress we feel is not acknowledged and released eventually the body will try and speak to you through physical symptoms and disease. EFT can help us understand the emotions behind the stress and where they originate from. Through tapping we can begin to open our hearts once again to connect with the truth of our emotions and release them. Once you recognise that all feelings, even the painful ones have a role to play in guiding you on your soul path it becomes easier to accept them as important wisdom from your heart.

When you unlock the pain held in your heart and release it you are free to rediscover all the other treasures contained within it that are difficult to access in an emotionally blocked state. Feelings of love, joy, compassion and gratitude for life. A true heart centred connection to other people and to life itself. In opening our hearts and releasing pain we find ourselves coming home to the eternal love of our soul.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

What to do when the fear-mind takes over

Courtesy of Loddy Micucci.com

We are living in times of rapid and profound change with a growing recognition that we need to move away from solely focusing on industrial growth and materialism towards building a life-sustaining society that benefits the health of the individual, the community and the ecosystems on which all life is dependant. In the natural world change is constant it’s only in the human world we try and control our lives to avoid change as we fear we won’t survive it.

But change is necessary for us to grow and change involves risk. When a seed is germinated and it becomes a seedling there is a risk that it might get eaten or not have enough food or water to survive. However the risk is necessary for it to fulfil its destiny of growing into a plant that will then propagate the species contributing to its evolutionary journey.

Some of you are choosing to proactively change your lives because of dissatisfaction with your old life and a desire to be part of this positive shift but for others perhaps change has been forced upon you.  Regardless of how change is initiated it is possible for you to see it as an opportunity to reassess your life and the path you are currently on rather than becoming overwhelmed by fear of the unknown.

Challenges of change

When you let go of the day-to-day activities that kept you busy in our old life you find a space is created that makes it easier to listen to your inner voice.  It would be great if all you had to do was listen but this is just the first stage to bringing major change to your life. The biggest challenge to taking action based on the guidance of your heart is confronting the fear-mind. You will recognise the fear-mind when you start hearing all the reasons why you can’t do what you’re heart is telling you because:

It’s too difficult

It will never work

So and so tried it and look what happened to them

What if I can’t earn enough money doing the thing I love?

I’m not good enough

I’m too old to start again

What if it doesn’t work out?

What if I don’t meet anyone else?

The list can be endless and designed to do one thing and one thing only. Protect you from taking risks and remind you of all the times it didn’t work out in the past to keep you ‘safe’ in your comfort zone. However for many of you your comfort zone is often a place you reached because of limiting beliefs about yourself and what you could achieve in life rather than a place you consciously visualised and worked towards manifesting. Do you ever wonder who you would be and where you would be without the fear-mind holding you back?

Tapping into positivity and possibility

When you find the fear-mind has taken over but you also know that change will be a good thing for you. Tapping is a great way to acknowledge your fearful thoughts and get to the root of them. Acknowledging your fears instead of denying or suppressing them is the first step to overcoming them.

When you tap on these thoughts you can access the first time you felt this feeling which will usually be an early traumatic memory where you created a self-limiting belief about yourself or you will recognise the voice of an adult authority figure speaking their conditioned fears that you absorbed as your own. Other memories where these beliefs where reinforced may also come into your awareness. People are always surprised that the thoughts and beliefs of a 4 year old in an emotionally difficult moment can still be governing them unconsciously many years later.

Once you have tapped to clear the negative energy held within these memories you are able to have new insights about the past whilst simultaneously creating new positive beliefs about yourself in your current situation. This in turn frees your energy so you can begin creating new ideas and possibilities for how you can step out of your comfort zone towards whatever your heart is calling you to with positivity and confidence.
