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)

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.

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.

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.
