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.

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.
