What do these people have in common?
Something significant happened during their time in the womb or during their birth or growing up years that is impacting their lives today. This event or events left a traumatic imprint that is stopping them from achieving their dreams. This is the origin of what we call inner child wounds.
Over twenty-five years of research, hundreds of studies, and clinical findings in prenatal and perinatal psychology have mapped out life in the womb and the birth experience from the baby’s perspective, showing that our fundamental life patterns and core beliefs are woven into the fabric of our being prenatally and at our birth! 1
During this time, the baby forms beliefs and ways of responding that become her subconscious emotional landscape and orientation towards growth or protection. This forms a template in the baby's mind, emotions and body that sets the child’s basic life patterns and themes. These patterns and themes include those that are uplifting, as well as those that are depleting, because this life is an experience of contrast. Our prenatal and birth experience is our entrance into this dimension of contrast. We came to experience joy and sorrow, happiness and sadness, ease and struggle, light and dark, so that we can know for ourselves the difference, and in that knowing, be able to distinguish and choose the light ~ to choose joy.
For many, experiencing joy often requires healing a lot of pain. Many have struggled for years with their particular pain, which is often anchored in place energetically by deeply held unconscious beliefs and unfinished emotional baggage from traumatic imprints from the past that are anchored in this life through the prenatal and birth experience.
You Don’t Have to Remain Chained by Your Inner Child Wounds. Powerful, Lasting Healing from Trauma Is Possible.
The cutting-edge Energy Psychology method of Rapid Eye Technology (RET) is one of the most efficient, effective and successful tools I know of to release inner child wounds and traumatic imprints and limiting, deeply held patterns and core beliefs, and assists the client in releasing the old templates of fear, struggle, fight, flight or freezing for survival. RET is the original, holistic, spiritual eye movement energy therapy. In my opinion, RET is the Gold Standard when it comes to inner child healing. The awareness that each person is in essence a perfect spiritual being is at the heart of RET.
What is Rapid Eye Technology? What kinds of problems does it help heal?
Rapid Eye has demonstrated profound success in assisting clients to release depression, pain, insecurity, anxiety, painful memories or experiences, unhappy relationship patterns, and trauma of all kinds. RET is also highly effective in releasing stress, addictions, compulsions, post-traumatic stress, grief, anger, panic disorders, attention problems, attachment problems, and many other limiting life patterns and core beliefs.
The most exciting use of these tools to me is their effectiveness in assisting us to lay a NEW TEMPLATE for creating the life and relationships we want. These include personal happiness, security, feelings of self-worth and belonging, happy loving relationships, improved health, reaching our ideal weight, and creating abundance in all areas of our lives.
How Does RET work?
RET utilizes blinking, directed eye movements, breathing, imagery, and other techniques to facilitate the release of the initial trauma and the resulting traumatic imprints, including life-depleting emotional, mental, and physical patterns. Neurologically, RET accesses the deep processing, ordering and discharging that we do naturally each night during the REM (rapid eye movement) stage of dreaming. Research has determined that the integrative eye movements of REM sleep are vital to health and well being.
Rapid Eye Technology is a center-piece resource integrated within The Sophia Method™.
Much of what I do with RET bypasses the conscious brain, allowing clients to access and transform material anchored deep within. Many people realize tremendous healing in 8 - 12 sessions. Additional tools and resources are used for clients who have experienced significant trauma or abuse, addictions, or serious depression. RET can also be used with children over 5 who experience fears, nightmares, anger, learning or other behavioral issues.
In summary, Rapid Eye Technology is an extremely effective method to facilitate healing from the effects of traumatic experiences, core issues and the root causes of limiting patterns of all sorts, including those anchored in our prenatal and birth, and earlier life experiences and for gracefully creating a joyful life now.
RET is a centerpiece resource in my flagship women's program, Freeing the Heroine Within! and a centerpiece resource I call upon in my own life as well. I am personally grateful for this healing gift in my life, and for the privilege and opportunity of sharing it with others.
