  • Newborn Behavioural Observation


    The Newborn Behavioural Observation (NBO) was designed to help practitioners sensitise parents to their child’s competencies and uniqueness as these contribute to the development of a positive parent - infant relationship from the very beginning.


    The 18 NBO items include observations of the infant’s

    • Capacity to habituate to external light and sound stimuli - demonstrating how well the infant protects his or her sleep
    • Quality of motor tones and activity level
    • Capacity for self-regulation (including crying and consolability or soothability)
    • Response to stress ( indices of the infant’s physiological stability and threshold for stimulation )
    • Visual auditory and social-interactive capacities ( degree of alertness and response to both human and non-human stimuli )


    The focus is on the infant’s individuality and provides the infant with a voice, a signature.

    Understanding newborn behaviour and early relationships with their mother and father is foundational to the care of neonates and their family.
    Each newborn infant has their own unique cues and behaviour to enable them to interact with their world.

    Recognising an infant’s subtle cues, and guiding parents in reciprocating and attending to their baby appropriately has the potential to create attachment and bonding that has lifelong implications in the health and welfare of the infant and their family.




    It was wonderful to attend this training in May 2019, along with colleagues from many areas of New Zealand.

    My training group included midwives, child development physiotherapists, occupational therapists, well child providers, nurses, doctors and mental health professionals. All passionate in enhancing maternal / paternal infant attachment and enabling gentle, loving care individualised for each and every baby.

    ( Further assessments enable attendees to complete the training )


    The trainers were a doctor from Melbourne, Australia and a nurse from Hawkes Bay, New Zealand. Each very skilled in their knowledge of NBO and in presenting.

    I consider the Newborn Behavioural Observation workshop integral for every health profession working with families and neonates / infants up to 3 months.

    It lays the foundation for each infant and parent to feel safe, secure and nurtured within the mother / father infant bond.



    A further area I quickly recognised on the training, is the potential to apply this knowledge in working with clients within Matrix Birth Reimprinting consultations. Learn more 

    Each newborn infant has their own unique cues and behaviour to enable them to interact with their world. Recognising an infant’s subtle cues, and guiding parents in reciprocating and attending to their baby appropriately, has the potential to create attachment and bonding that has lifelong implications in the health and welfare of the infant and their family.

    Whether this is in current time or when a client is guided back to their newborn time the benefits can be very powerful. 

    Bringing the knowledge of Newborn Behavioural Observation into Matrix Birth Reimprinting sessions, provides further opportunity for healing early traumatic newborn experiences and enhancing feelings of love and belonging.

    It has potential for a whole new learning and feelings of safety, attachment and connection in the individual’s life now.

  • Enriched Family - Enhanced Care - reflection from International Neonatal Nurses Conference


    In May 2019, I attended the Council of International Neonatal Nurses (COINN)  4 day conference in Auckland, New Zealand.

    The conference was exciting to experience, a wonderful voice for global neonatal nursing, with representatives from sixty countries and fourteen national organisations.


    From the opening to the closing ceremonies, each presentation gave meaning to the conference theme: Enriched Family - Enhanced Care.


    How can we enable the highest level of loving gentle safe care for premature, sick and well babies and their families within their need for intensive and special care nursing.


    Highlights from conference for me:

    • The pre conference workshop ‘Practical Application of Neurodevelopmental Strategies in the Neonatal Setting’.  A commitment and challenge to look at neurodevelopmental care (NDC), what it actually entails, necessities for optimal neonatal brain development, ‘traffic light’ cues for approach or avoidance responses neonates so beautifully give us, how individual neonatal units are meeting optimum NDC, and how we can facilitate ongoing change to enhance the lived experience of every premature, sick and well baby, their mother, father and family.
    • Building relationships and safety, Community - Cultural partnership. The discrepancy of seeing things through our eyes that may or may not be the view of another. Recognition of the impact of trauma both generational and individual. The emphasis of trust and strategies for culturally safe care - safe care perceived by the receiver. The elephant in the room that impacts on and influences outcomes for neonates and their families.
    • ‘The Impact of Language’, and the ‘Super Power Baby Project’ presented by Rachael Callander. Rachel and her magical daughter Evie’s journey, and published photographic book are a gift to us all - the celebration of Evie, and each beautiful little human being life -  a reminder to embrace each child’s attributes even when their life is limited and to use informative, open hearted enabling language.
    • The neuroscience of nurture. Prioritising skin to skin, holding babies with your heart, your eyes, your hands, your arms, gentle loving touch within the safety of their mother, father and family. The primal need for attachment to our mother for optimal growth and development and the lifelong impact of separation. The work of Nils Bergman, Heidelise Als and other pioneers informing us of the care we must provide for the safety of every little one and their family in our care.
    • The impact of the neonatal journey, the lived experience of being a mother or father whose newborn baby needs neonatal intensive or special care. A journey of traumatic experiences and stress day after day and the heightened risk of this leading to Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). And how as neonatal nurses we can do so much to hold space, enable, and nurture parents and families in self care, and in the care of their little one.
    • Incorporating neuroprotective family centred care in every aspect of neonatal intervention from administration and planning neonatal units, education of all involved at every level, to every core measure required in the care received within the unit by each and every infant and his her family. Neuroprotective, family centred, developmental care.
    • Building strength and resilience, affecting and being affected by our experiences. Nurses, doctors, midwives - everyone in the neonatal team, parents and families. The actions and words we say to ourselves and one another. Creating the environment that fosters growth and optimal development that cares and holds each and every one, safe, secure, nurtured and loved. The environment that fosters and celebrates every person no matter how small.


    This content of the conference is close to my heart and my specialty as a Meta Consciousness practitioner:

    Health concerns, symptoms, emotions, thoughts and feelings that originate from

    • The  experience  of  each,  in-utero,  sick,  premature,  or  well   baby,  and  their  family

    • Traumatic  experiences  during  pregnancy,  birth  and  beyond


    Two weeks following the conference, Newborn Behavioural Observation (NBO) training provided further opportunity to deepen my knowledge and to apply this within my work in caring for premature, sick, and well infants as a neonatal nurse in Special Care Baby Unit,  and

    when working with clients looking to heal:

    • their or their child’s birth experience,
    • feelings of disconnect from their mother,
    • or a deep inner awareness that has always been there, a knowing that something is not right or ideal.

    More on this in the next article titled ‘Newborn Behavioural Observation - enhancing the newborn experience and maternal / paternal / infant connection both now and in healing past trauma.

    How this can inform us now and as we address our earlier life experiences.   Link here

  • My specialty




    Why were we born to be here on earth?  My answer? 

    To discover, learn and grow from each and every experience we have.

    A question was recently asked around practitioners specialty.
    I would like to share some revelations around my niche.  

    I am currently working with my eyes - willingly looking deeply to the foundation of my wearing gasses since the age of 7 years. This is raising my awareness and working with my ECHO’s (younger self) at many ages on so many levels.

    Enabling loving gentle birth and nurturing babies and their family has been my greatest passion since the beginning of my nursing and midwifery career, and as a Meta-Health / EFT / Matrix Reimprinting / Birth practitioner.

    A few days ago, in my morning meditation, my eyes, my specialty as a practitioner, and the word “in-sight” arose as an unplanned focus. Our language reveals our subconscious mind -   ‘in sight’ !!
     
    In mentioning to my husband the revelations and even deeper connections in my meditation, I said “I have to specialise” - the irony of my words “I have two Special Eyes”.  


    As a neonatal nurse, I provide Special neonatal care within baby unit for babies and their families.

    My learning as a practitioner ?  my niche ?   -  I provide ‘two special eyes’ for

    • The experience of each, in-utero, sick, premature, and well baby, and their family.
    • Traumatic experiences during pregnancy, birth and beyond.


    Nurturing  and  connecting  back  the sacred bond of the infant,  their mother,  father,  and family,  the  foundation  for  their  life,  and  our  humanity.

    Matrix Birth Reimprinting

    "With Matrix Birth Reimprinting you can go back to the womb and reimprint your birth experience, which will change your energy levels, mood, and wellbeing in the present.

    Using EFT and Matrix Reimprinting we can go back and release the emotions connected to these traumas and create a whole new experience and belief system.

    Using a specially designed technique we can recreate the birth process and experience the special bonding process that is natural to every mother and child, if the right circumstances are presented to them at birth".    (Sharon King - Creator of Matrix Birth Reimprinting)

  • Babies, Birth, Relationships and Love


    An article written for   Meta-Healthy Life    online magazine  - link

    Our first relationships are within the womb when as a tiny bunch of cells we begin our journey in life.

    Many think of the developing embryo and fetus as an unconscious being. This is far from the truth.

    From the moment of conception we are conscious beings and are influenced by the world of our mother. And her mother, as we began as a cell when our mother was a three month fetus. We can look back even further if we consider that we chose our parents and plan our soul’s journey in this life. 1

    Love and relationships begin before conception

    Working with clients (and with myself) as a META-Health and Matrix Reimprinting Practitioner, I have witnessed the impact of how our experience in utero and at birth influences our life, our relationships and our ability to give and receive love. I have also personally been back to my 8 week old fetus, and earlier to my conception, to the origin of my one core belief, and what this might mean in the family relationships I would be born into.

    I have recently had the pleasure of training in Matrix Birth Reimprinting with its creator, Sharon King. As a neonatal nurse, midwife, mother, Matrix Reimprinting and META-Health practitioner, I have been following and incorporating Sharon’s work for some years.

    Attending this training enabled me to go deeper in my understanding and ability to work with birth trauma and pre-conscious memories. Through going back to my own birth, I learnt why I have such a deep passion for enabling loving, gentle birth, keeping babies with their mothers and fathers and nurturing newborns skin to skin. 2

    Babies are conscious beings from the moment of conception and they remember their birth and time in utero 3, 4. Every thought, feeling and emotion is recorded 5. There are many research studies and countless birth reimprinting stories that show us this is repeatedly true.

    Shaped by our birth

    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.

    Through my studies and research of the mind body brain social connection, I have learnt that our body knows what it needs, is always wise, and at all times, strives to maintain homeostasis. We respond to our environment through our senses and perceptions. These experiences create our thoughts, emotions, and beliefs and are not only in our mind and nervous system. Our brain releases chemical messages (neurotransmitters) that allow it to communicate with itself, and organ tissues. Our body bio-logically responds depending how we perceive the experience. So we are physically reacting, and changing, in response to the thoughts that run through our mind. This occurs at all stages of our development from a fetus in utero, to a new born baby and as we grow and become adults 6.

    Hypnosis, Matrix Reimprinting 7, Reiki, and other therapies have taught us we can connect energetically through time and space with someone anywhere in the world and in our past. Tuning into your little one during pregnancy creates learning, knowing and increased connection for both mother, father and baby. Post birth, early care can profoundly alter an infant throughout their life and effects of separation can be extensive. To a baby it is a life – death situation when separated from their mother. Separation disrupts an infant’s behaviour and development 8 and there is extensive research on its effects, especially if repeated. Effects not only for the infant, their mother, father and family, but also for society. Early stress also has the potential to alter gene expression.

    Sharon King, author of ‘Heal your Birth, Heal your Life’ 9 , writes of life long anxiety, hypervigilence, fear and shame, the inability to regulate ones’ emotions, an exaggerated stress response and decreased resilience, all relating back to separation at and around birth.

    Gabor Maté 10, 11 also writes extensively on this subject and includes a long list of effects, especially if separation continues during early childhood. Depression; socio-moral immaturity; relationship problems; trust, low self esteem and attachment problems; disconnect with others; behavioural and learning issues; aggression, violence and addiction; a feeling of being disempowered, rejected, unloved, unwanted or abandoned which may even lead to mental illness and or suicide; physical illness such as asthma, high blood pressure, heart disease, and cancer. All can relate back to separation issues, many of which may have originated at our birth.

    Further research shows us that our perception of our birth experience can impact on our decisions throughout life. For example having our cord around our neck at birth, may create dislike as a child and adult for anything around our neck. If our labour was induced we may have boundary issues, feel unable to do things for ourselves and need someone to rescue us, or not know how to get started on a project. Forceps delivery can lead to issues with bonding, loss of trust, and a sense of intrusion or violence. And the list goes on 5 .

    META Health provides us with the knowledge of how our body will respond when a specific organ tissue is impacted. We know the theme of what is occurring and the phases that will be experienced as the body moves through the process of healing, in its return to health. For example, an infant reunited with his or her mother after being separated may develop the red, hot, itchy symptoms of eczema – a skin epidermis condition.

    So I am asking some questions

    • Is the experience of your in utero relationships and birth affecting your life?
    • Or the life of your children?
    • Did you experience a traumatic event during your time in utero or when pregnant or during birth?
    • Is your birth experience influencing the decisions and choices you make in life?
    • Were you or your little one fearful or anxious during pregnancy and birth?

    Studies show 80% of seven year children who were in utero during the Christchurch, New Zealand earthquakes, suffer from anxiety.

    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 5.

    Dr Sears 12 and many others write of the “sensitive period” at birth when mothers and newborns are uniquely programmed to be in contact with each other and do good things to each other.

    Enabling skin to skin nurturing at birth, during the neonatal period and beyond, is my greatest love for infants and their parents. I have written a series of four articles on this and continue to expand this opportunity for newborn infants and parents in my work as a neonatal nurse within Special Care Baby Unit (Nelson, New Zealand).

    Through my neonatal nursing work I was fortunate to attend a one day seminar with Nils Bergman, the worlds leading authority on skin to skin. Backed by extensive ongoing research we know this is what every newborn infant requires and deserves.

    Relationships that began before and in utero, are cemented further within the psyche of the infant and mother (and father) at birth. I deeply and passionately believe loving gentle birth is the way forward for mankind.

    For those who were unable to experience this and loving vibrations during their time in utero, Matrix Birth Reimprinting gives us the opportunity to go back. To give our little self a voice to say and do what they needed to do, in every moment of trauma, big or small. To connect and form a loving bond with their mother, father and significant other. The impact of this on our life is profound. We are social beings and need our family, our community, and one another in our world.

    Life is meant to be a journey of discovery, to find the learning from our experiences so we can evolve as conscious beings. This starts before our birth.

    I am hopeful that in teaching and writing, I can share my experience and research with others, so it will become the norm to honour and respect the dynamic connection between an infant, their mother, their father and family.

  • EFT and Matrix Reimprinting Introduction Workshop


    Would you like an introduction to EFT and Matrix Reimprinting?


    In March I had the privilege of attending and training as an ‘EFT / Matrix Reimprinting Ambassador’  with  Caroline Dawson  in beautiful  Currumbin,  Gold Coast,  Australia.

    Training as a practitioner in EFT and Matrix Reimprinting, requires attendance at training workshops, with a Master Trainer in each of there areas.  (Plus watching online videos and and exam).

    Caroline Dawson (sister of Karl Dawson - creator of Matrix Reimprinting) currently offers these trainings in Australia.

    At some point we are hoping 2 day practitioner trainings in EFT will be available in New Zealand 

    Qualification in EFT,  then enables you to attend the further 2 days Practitioner training in Matrix Reimprinting.


    In the mean time

    The Ambassador Training has been created by Karl Dawson, to enable experienced qualified EFT / Matrix Reimprinting Practitioners (like myself) world wide, to present a full one day workshop, so those without knowledge of these powerful processes can learn how it might benefit them, their family and friends.


    This day workshop, is an introduction for you  to EFT and Matrix Reimprinting.

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Meta Health, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting - Part 2: How does Meta Health inform us?




    Meta health provides us with extensive knowledge


    For example, when someone tells me they have a symptom:

    Lets say they have pain in their right shoulder,

    What is it?    Why is it there?     Well it depends.

    Remember, symptoms are only ‘symptoms’.

    So instead of becoming intolerant to them, learn to  listen to what they are telling you, to provide a smoother, quicker flow to wellness.
    The sooner you  acknowledgevalidate, and  accept your symptoms and emotions the sooner your body can heal.
    You are designed to learn from them so you can become wiser and stronger.

    Through using a Meta Health analysis process and asking specific questions, we can gain extensive insight into why a particular symptom or emotion, or thought process is occurring. This insight is linked to empirical evidence and scientific knowledge.


    These questions include:


    1. Are you right or left wired?  This is not necessarily the hand you write with. Our ‘wiredness’ is important as it has specific meaning for the symptomatic area of your body. 


    2.  What does the associated part of you do biologically?  Its function in your body.


    3.  What relay of the brain controls that part of the body

    This is laid down in your 1st 20 days of life as a tiny embryo. 
    Each of the 4 main areas (relays) of your brain govern precise organ tissues


    4.  What are the themes, the thoughts and the emotions associated with each specific organ tissue?   The specific ‘secret’ language of your body.

    5.  What is going on in your life when you first felt the symptom / emotion?       

    6.  What happened before and since?
    For the shoulder, I would ask, where in your life do you feel responsible for  something  -  like carrying a weight on your shoulders.
    If part of your body aches,  I would ask,  what did you begin to feel better about just before it started to ache.


    7. If there is swelling it tells me you felt isolated, alone, and abandoned.  Part of your kidney is activated when you feel this.



    So now those who understand Meta Health have many answers to these questions and can guide you in your healing.


    Short Video: What is Meta-Health about   (From Meta-Health Conference 2017 In India)

    In part 3 we will explore how our brain works.

  • Meta Health, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting - Part 1


    An Introduction to Meta Health

    Throughout history people have come to look at things differently   
    New science, new discoveries, new knowledge.  
    I would like to take you on a journey.   
    A new understanding of health, wider and deeper
    Linking, exploring, discovering.

    So, What is Meta Health
    An analysis process involving the meaning of illness / disease
    A method for mind body healing and latest advances for coaching and therapy
    Ancient wisdom and modern science
    ‘Meta’ - the big picture
    Incorporates information from many fields      
    A foundation for all health professionals
    A new paradigm of the future   


    Background Understanding
    We are social beings and we need our family, our community, and others.
    Our body is intelligent and has order and structure  
    Our body never makes mistakes, and nothing our body does is random.
    Dis-ease is a meaningful process - a specific response to a perceived traumatic event - someone yelled at us, hurt us, said something unkind about us or we thought they did, we saw something  …..
    Every symptom has a bio - logical and psychological meaning  -
        A symptom is our body’s way of telling us something is not right.



    Western medicine has generally accepted the connection between stress and illness but has moved away from the root cause for what we are experiencing.


    And little is discussed about the connection between our mind, body, spiritual, and social health.  

                        
    When we experience disconnect from others, we may feel isolated, anxious, and fearful and many other thoughts and feelings, yet so frequently these beliefs and emotions are not addressed.

    Our  stress triggers,  emotions,  thoughts,  and beliefs

    Impact on our organ tissues, and create specific body responses and symptoms. Though we usually only want to suppress them to make them go away.

    What if we could understand our emotions and symptoms and use them as a guidance system.

    To embrace them with curiosity. Like a road map connecting what they mean.


    In Part 2 we will look at how Meta Health provides us with the knowledge to understand our symptoms and emotions.
