  • Matrix Birth Reimprinting




    In March 2018 I had the pleasure of flying to the Gold Coast Australia to train in ‘Matrix Birth Reimprinting & Matrix Life Purpose’ with their creator, Sharon King.  This qualification enables me to work with Birth Traumas and pre-conscious memories.

    As a neonatal nurse, midwife, mother, Matrix Reimprinting and Meta-Health practitioner, I have been following Sharon's work for some years. I loved her book ‘Heal Your Birth, Heal Your Life’ and consider it compulsory reading for everyone who has been born, given birth, and for all who work with clients and child birth.

    Attending this training has enabled me to go deeper in my understanding of the impact of our birth on our life.

    Through going back to my birth, I learnt why I have such a deep passion for keeping babies with their mothers (and fathers) and skin to skin nurturing.


    I was born in the era when newborn babies were placed in a nursery and taken out to their mothers for feeding 4 hourly. Guided gently and lovingly by a colleague on my Matrix Birth Reimprinting training, I went back to my newly born self.  Not to become her, but to be with her.  She was in her cot, crying.  Separated from her mother as was every other baby in that nursery room.
    Being able to say and do what she wanted is / was life changing for her and me.  We wrapped her gently in a soft pink blanket - her chosen colour for safety.  We asked her what she needed.  Together, we created the 3 things she wanted - her angel to come and watch over her,  her daddy to take her to her mummy and put her back on skin to skin. This was profound for her,  but she wanted more.  She wanted all the other babies daddies to take them to their mummies too, to be placed on skin to skin, nurtured with no separation.

    On my visits back to that nursery room, multiple times since, it was always empty.
    Several days later I went back into the ‘matrix’ and changed that room, to be a place for nurturing babies on their mothers and fathers. Soft lighting and gentle music now fills that room. A place of comfort with lazy boy chairs. A place for babies, mothers, fathers and families where only love and connection exists.



    This is the ability we have with Matrix Birth Reimprinting for any birth experience.

    Babies are conscious beings from the moment of conception and they remember their birth and time in utero (Chamberlain, 2013). Every thought, feeling and emotion is recorded (King, 2018). There are many research studies and countless birth reimprinting stories that show us this is repeatedly true.

    Our birth story makes a difference to us. It sets the stage for our experiences in life, how our brain develops, how we organise ourselves and how we relate to our world.


    I reach out to you and ask:   

    • Is your experience of birth affecting your life?     

                  or the life of your children?

    • Were you or your little one fearful or anxious during pregnancy and birth?
    • Did you experience a traumatic event during your time in utero or when pregnant or during birth
    • Did you have a fast birth?
    • Were you induced, born by caesarean, forceps, ventouse, stuck, or had your cord tightly around your neck during your birth?
    • Did you or your children experience separation?
    • Are you aware, that the health concerns / relationship issues you are experiencing during your life may relate to your birth?


    If any of these questions, or many others I have not asked, bring up memories or trigger you in any way, remember, we (and our parents and those involved in our birth) were always doing the best we could with the knowledge and understanding we had at that time (King, 2018). 

    It is how   we  perceive our experiences in life that is relevent for us. And our reality  will likely differ from others perception even if they were there at that time.

    We also all come into this world to learn through our experiences.




    Be open to the possibility that you can reconnect with your little self and your parents through Matrix Birth Reimprinting, to have the perfect birth and bonding experience for you and to take the learnings and move forward in your life.

    With loving, gentle guidance you can also recreate the birth you wanted for your children and if you are pregnant, future imprint the birth you want for your baby. What might this change in your and their life?

    Enabling gentle loving birth and healing birth trauma is the foundation and the way forward for us all. At the time we were actually in utero and born, or through Matrix Birth Reimprinting.

    It matters how we are born (Bergman, 2016).

  • 3 Steps to Take When You Feel Overwhelmed



    Do you often feel stressed and overwhelmed in your life?


    3 steps you can take to calm and steady yourself


    1.  Start tapping on yourself  

           Using  2  fingers,  tap on any  or  all of these points 


    ** Tapping Point Graphic by Karl Dawson


    2.   Tune into your body and ask:   

             If there was a colour that I right feel now, what would that be?


             Where in my body do I feel that colour and overwhelm?


            Tune into that area in your body    and

             pick up on any other energy   /   feelings that may be there



    3.    Now ask yourself:

           What colour do I need to feel safe right now?


    Think of that colour surrounding you like a comforting, soft, safety blanket,  while you breathe deeply in and out for a count of 6.


    Practice and use this, so every time you feel overwhelmed or anxious, you have a strategy to calm and help yourself.  
    Children can benefit from this too, so teach them what you have learnt so they can discover for themselves how they can regulate their feelings.

  • Meta Health, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Part 7: So what does a healing session with me look like?


    A healing session with me includes aspects from each of Parts 1 - 6 of this article series.

    Meta Health analysis   of what  you are experiencing
    Your health concerns, symptoms, emotions, associated traumatic events.

    Discovering the meaning, your beliefs, and values of what is going on in your life. 

    Understanding how your body responds (mind, body and brain) within the 2 Phases.

    And if the beliefs you hold that underpin every action you take, are actually yours or come from someone else.

    Specific Therapy Plan and Conscious Actions:
    You will be guided to feel into your experience and what comes up for you.
    This may be a memory, a picture / image, sound, smell, taste, a thought, an emotion, or just a sense of something.
    I will ask where do you feel it in your body?   And if it has a colour,  a shape,  a size?

    In allowing your feelings and sensations, you can
        Acknowledge and Validate them,  and with guidance,  Accept them    
        Realise what they have come to tell you
        Recognise the belief and strategy you have repeatedly utilised

    When you go to your younger self / your little self,  frozen in the moment of trauma,  how will they feel,  when free from their trapped experience - the time when they felt powerless,  alone,  isolated,  with no strategy?

    When you are willing to reach out to your ECHO’s,  and give them a voice,  a way to move through,  and learn from,  their traumatic experiences,  a chance to create a new meaning and belief -  What could the freedom and learning, be for you?

    In getting out of your body’s way you can allow healing to occur on many levels - cellular, body organ, mind, brain  …..

    For myself, I have been back to many of my ECHO’s.  It is a powerful experience and one of amazing learning and realisation. When something comes up for me,  I go back to my younger self - to my ECHO’s who repeatedly now say,  “You have come to me. I was wondering when you were going to come to me”.  And then together,  myself now and my ECHO then,  explore what was traumatic for them at that time.  Beautiful experiences I cherish. Each creates deeper understanding and personal growth in who I am and what shaped decisions and experiences over my life.

    2 Phases and 8 Milestones



    Finding the root cause,  exploring to release & let it go,  guidance to feeling calm, peaceful and light.  In Flow



    We go beyond a quick fix to building trust in the body’s wisdom and healing ability

    Depending on how you feel, we may ask for guidance from our higher self & divine wisdom (Universe, Source. God ….. - whatever name you wish)    We are energetic beings, and affect and are affected by energy around and within us.    
                                                 
    Learning to Understand symptoms, health concerns and why you feel a particular way, decreases fear.  Increasing curiosity and reducing / eliminating fear creates space to grow.

    Learn to develop your curiosity in all areas of your life - what has this come to teach you.  What can I learn from this experience.  Self discovery and a sense of self purpose.
    No blame.

    Healing in an energy of love not fear


    
    “embrace and learn from your own challenges”  Robert Schwartz  ‘Your Soul’s Gift’



    “It is never too late to have a happy childhood” 1


    Heal yourself and your little one  (your children and / or your inner you)
    Reconnection, love and compassion is the way forward for us, our children and our world
    Safe, Secure, Nurtured and Loved

  • Meta Health, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Part 6: Matrix Reimprinting


    In part 5 I introduced you to Emotional Freedom Technique ( EFT ) which is based on our body’s energy pathways  (meridians).

    In Matrix Reimprinting we use EFT to go back, through our timeline, to the root cause of our health concern, symptom, emotion, belief, thought, or behavioural pattern.


    To gently connect, disassociated, to the traumatic times in our life.  


    Those times of trauma when a little part of us froze in our subconscious - ‘split off’ to protect us.


    When we made decision to keep us safe - a strategy,  a belief.

    And then, throughout our life, we subconsciously continued to use this strategy and belief.
       
    But we have forgotten where and why it all started and have little realisation how much it continues to affect our decision making.

    Matrix Reimprinting is a way back to our younger little self, down our timeline to the beginning.


    A chance to give our younger self, a voice to say, and do, what they couldn’t do then.

    We call this younger self,  our ECHO  (Energy Conscious Hologram).

    Remember, our subconscious records everything we experience.  Matrix Reimprinting creates a opportunity to access it.

    We resource the ECHO to feel safe 

    To remain safe is paramount at all times. We ask the ECHO what belief they made at that time - that ‘split off’ moment - and we ask our current self, how it has been serving us since.

    Remember the 4 components of a traumatic event from Part 3:  

    Unexpected    Dramatic for us    Isolating (alone)    No strategy 


    When we go to our younger self and they have us and others of their choice,  they are no longer alone.

    With love, nurturing, and protection, the ECHO can become empowered and create their new strategy.

    We move the ECHO through the trauma and help them release it

    We then Reimprint their most powerful beautiful image - with all their new chosen positive sights, smells, sounds, tastes, feelings, sensations, colours …..          (activating the now positive senses)

    Within minutes new neural pathways form and their new belief is created.




    A further area of passion for me is that of our birth.

    Birth is the beginning of many health concerns

           Pre, during, and post our birth

                     Our birth and birth of our children


    Beliefs are formed in utero and at our birth


    Matrix Birth Reimprinting

    Enables us to explore these beliefs, patterns of behaviour, and health concerns that began pre, during, and post birth.



    Examples:

    • A baby unplanned or unwanted may have lifelong issues of feeling of rejected.
    • The Cord around a baby’s neck at birth may be linked to not wanting to wear anything tight around the neck.
    • A Forceps delivery may create a feeling of being pressured in life, stuck / held back or the need for someone to ‘pull them out’ of a situation.



    A further term I wish to introduce is

    Epigenetics    The science of switching on and off of genes (DNA)

    The most important message is     Genes are not our destiny

    Bruce Lipton states:  "Change your beliefs, change your life destiny"

    This short video links you to this powerful message within the  2016  Matrix Reimprinting Conference  video link




    We have an opportunity, for us, and our children, to examine and change our emotions, our belief system for more supporting enriching ones, and heal our health challenges and concerns.


    A powerful technique for nearly any emotional, psychological, physical, spiritual issue.

    And to perhaps Understand our Soul Path




    So I ask the questions:

    Are you going to leave your younger self trapped in an experience - alone, isolated, with no strategy

    or

    Are you willing to reach out to your ECHO’s, and give them a voice, a way to move through, and learn from, their traumatic experiences?

    A chance to create a new meaning and belief.  

    How might it affect your life now in your search for loving relationships, happiness and wellbeing?


    Who might you become?




    Those who experience Matrix Reimprinting hold many amazing stories - of release of traumatic experiences they have carried for decades and an understanding and personal growth they never knew possible.

    Are you curious to discover more meaning and purpose in your life ?



    In part 7  I will answer the question:

    So what does a healing session with me look like?

  • Meta Health, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting - Part 5: What is EFT - Emotional Freedom Technique


    When we are using Matrix Reimprinting I will be guiding you to use an emotional and physical healing tool created by Gary Craig (  http://emofree.com/ ) called Emotional Freedom Technique. EFT, is based on our body’s energy circuits (meridians) traditionally used for thousands of years in acupuncture and many other healing techniques.

    When we experience a distressing event that was traumatic for us, our body’s energy system is disrupted. At this time we create an electrical charge and store it within our subconscious mind, a record of the event and a reminder to protect us in case we experience it again in our life. We also form a belief about the world in this moment.

    The first event is usually in our early years, from our very beginning as a tiny embryo (or before), our birth, and as a young child when we were learning about our world and our place in it. From there on in our lives, when a memory of that early event is triggered, our body’s energy system is once again disrupted and we also trigger an associated emotion.

    An emotion creates a cascade of effects on our body affecting energy flow and chemical changes throughout many body organs and our hormonal system. Basically, if our mind doesn’t or can’t deal with stress, our body will store it. Increasing and overwhelming stress can lead to illness, pain, anxiety, and many other health concerns. This, and our beliefs, also influence the decisions we make throughout our life.

    Tapping on specific points on our body, enables us to release energy disruption and emotion in our mind and body.

    The graphic image below shows you where these EFT tapping points are.

  • Meta Health, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting - Part 4: Our Response to a Stress Trigger


    This is where I introduce you to

    The Meta-Health Two Phases Model

    When we experience a something that was a conflict for us - Unexpected,  Dramatic,  Isolating,  and we have No strategy for, our body responds with a ‘biological special programme’.

    This scientifically rigorous and reproducible ‘programme’, is a natural science based on five biological laws.

    Our mind,  brain  and specific body tissue responds in a precise manner.

    We enter Stress Phase (2).  We may now feel and experience body tension,  stress,  obsessive thinking,  sleeplessness,  cooler body,  hands and feet,  nervousness,  and our pulse rate and blood pressure are likely to be elevated.

    In Stress phase our Sympathetic Nervous System is active - our fight, flight or freeze response. However, if we are busy in our lives, we may not notice stress phase.

    When we take an appropriate action, make a strategy, have a solution present itself, or reconnect with a deeper meaning for our symptoms, we experience the Regeneration Trigger (3)  and enter the Regeneration Phase (4).

    We can now feel and experience many symptoms characteristic that our Parasympathetic Nervous System is active - the need to eat, sleep and regenerate. When we have fatigue,  tiredness,  a desire for food,  warmer skin hands and feet,  fever,  a slower pulse and lower blood pressure,  weight gain  and the need to rest and sleep, we are in Regeneration Phase. We usually also experience a sense of relief and difficulty in thinking clearly. Any redness,  heat,  flu,  most joint pains,  skin rashes,  eczema,  headaches,  dizziness and anything diagnosis that ends in ‘itis’,  tells us our body is in Regeneration Phase.

    On full resolution we regain our Health (5).

    The length of time we are in each phase depends on the intensity and duration of the conflict we experience.

    If we are retriggered during any part of this biological process, the path is interrupted. This can lead to chronic or recurring conditions. If we do not find a strategy to regenerate, we remain in the Stress phase.

    As you may have realised, this process is occurring simultaneously on many levels and with different body tissues.

    Some examples

    Eczema

    Organ: Skin Epidermis (outer layer of our skin)

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Separation - Touch we wanted and didn’t have, or unwanted touch

    Eczema symptoms come in Regeneration Phase: Hot, inflamed, red, itchy skin

    Common Cold

    Stress Trigger Theme:  This stinks or I am fed up with this

    In Regeneration Phase we experience a runny nose, sneezing, irritated nasal passages

    Lower back pain

    Organ: Bone / Joints

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Self worth - not strong or good enough, worthless

    Ask where are you feeling unsupported by others or unable to support yourself

    Stress Phase:  Maybe unnoticed

    Regeneration Phase:  Back pain, inflammation, tiredness, fatigue

    Knee pain

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Self worth - not strong / good enough

    Wanting to kick something or someone away or move forward in an area of our life

    Regeneration Phase:  Pain, maybe swelling, decreased function

    Neck pain

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Feelings of injustice.

    Maybe thoughts and feelings could be traced back to a person or situation where we were treated unfairly

    Pain is in Regeneration

    Tonsillitis

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Unable to swallow or accept something

    Tonsillitis comes in Regeneration Phase: Red, swollen tonsils, pain on swallowing, fever, feeling very tired

    Overactive Thyroid

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Survival issue of being too slow, not quick enough - need to go faster, get things done

    Stress Phase symptoms:  Overexcited, nervous, irritable, trouble sleeping, higher blood pressure

    Diabetes

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Something resisted, or felt fearful, disgusted and humiliated about

    Conjunctivitis

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Visual separation. Lost sight of someone (or pet), loved one moved away, left, died,  or  we were not allowed to see someone  or  we did not want to see someone

    Regeneration Phase:  Conjunctivitis (pink eye). Red, burning, itchy, watery eyes. Inflammation also often involves inside of eyelids

    Tinnitus

    Stress Trigger Theme:  Not wanting to hear something (social) or needing to hear something (survival).

    Tinnitus comes in Stress phase - Ringing, buzzing, humming, whistling, clicking, tinkling, hissing, roaring in the ear.

    Tinnitus can also continue into early Regeneration phase


    From the above list you will have likely realised that many symptoms come in Regeneration Phase. It is our 2nd biological phase of healing. If we acknowledge our thoughts, feelings and symptoms, and take the action our body is asking us to take - to rest and support healing, we will move through the process faster and with more ease.


    In Part 5 we will explore Matrix Reimprinting and EFT

  • Meta Health, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting - Part 3: Further Understanding


    How does our mind work?

    We have a conscious mind and a subconscious mind.


    Conscious Mind

    With our conscious mind we analyse ourselves and our environment. It is the part of our mind that holds our wishes and desires and it enables us to think in past, present and future.

    Subconscious Mind

    Our Subconscious (unconscious) mind is a data base where we have multiple programmes and beliefs running.

    We may think ‘we’ are in control but actually 95% of our actions and responses are subconscious.

    This part of our mind contains our learned and recorded behaviours, responses and beliefs - programming that shapes our every action. (Joe Dispenza / Bruce Lipton)

    Where do we get this from?

    From the conclusions and beliefs we make about our experiences.

    Much of our subconscious learning is subtle and non verbal, conclusions from powerful learning experiences. We download these from our parents, schools, church, friends, siblings, communities ……

    We also learn them from unconscious modelling and repetition.

    Much of this occurs in our 1st 6 years of life when our brain does not have any ability to filter information. Everything we experience and perceive to be about ourselves is purely and simply downloaded. Everything from the environment in which we live hardwired into our subconscious mind. And it is this that shapes our thinking and actions from there on.

    What about thoughts and emotions - what are these?

    Thoughts and emotions are chemical energy that flood our body. Lots of similar thoughts create a belief, and a strong neural pathway in our brain with lots of energy attached.

    We continuously sense vibration and energy

    Our mind, body and brain function in synchronicity, and together, continuously sense the vibration and energy of our environment and social connections. Newborn babies know this - They, like us as we grow, are always sensing; am I safe or unsafe.

    What about feeling unsafe?

    We are designed to sense danger - it is a basic survival need. If we see a tiger, we are meant to fear and activate an immediate survival response. However, in society now, we are triggered so frequently to move into survival fight, flight, freeze responses, and so many people exist in this survival response all the time. Always on alert.

    What happens when we have a traumatic experience?

    A ‘shock’ - a distressing event

    Unanticipated       Dramatic      Isolating       No strategy

    3 areas are simultaneously impacted

    1. Our mind

    2. Our Brain - in a very specific area to the shock experienced

    3. A very specific corresponding area in our body

    And a process is activated.

    A little part of us freezes in that moment - all nuances of what happened - sounds, smells, sight, tastes, self talk - all recorded in an area of our brain called the Amygdala.

    Why does our brain do this?

    To protect us.   A strategy to survive.

    And at this time we make a belief - ‘its all my fault, mummy doesn't love me, I am bad, not smart, not pretty …… and so on. A belief of how we saw the world in that moment.

    Our body responds - if we have no strategy we freeze and a little part of us splits off - trapped in time in that moment. It is recorded in our memory, within our subconscious brain and our field.

    From there on, whenever something comes up - a thought, reminder (sound, sight, smell, feeling, taste, self talk), we are retriggered back to that time and the belief strategy we formed in case it happened again. Each time we are retriggered it strengthens the nerve pathway, creating a faster connection.

    "Brain cells that fire together, wire together" - a fast connection in our subconscious brain.

    And It affects our life without us realising, a programmed response according to the beliefs we hold.


    In Part 4 we explore our response to Stress Triggers further.
