Honoring the Messages from All Your Relations

pen and ink by Kimberly Rex www.windowstotheheart.net

 

As a Resonance Repatterning® practitioner, I work with people who are experiencing anger, grief and depression. Many times, these emotions come from loss, physical and emotional stress, or unresolved issues from a relationship in their own life. However, many times, the information stems from the unconscious or “unknown” from past generations. Even if the client doesn’t know about a family member or situation from the past, a Family Systems session based on Family Constellations work of Bert Hellinger, and the use of the muscle-checking process in Resonance Repatterning, can tap into your resonance with systemic issues of exclusion, war, untimely death, poverty, disease, separation, perpetration, or victim hood of members of your system.

If you look deeply into the palm of your hand, you will see your parents and all generations of your ancestors.  All of them are alive in this moment. Each is present in your body. You are the continuation of each of these people. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Honoring the messages from all your relations affects how you see and experience life in the present. * All names in the following 3 case studies were changed and situations shared with permission.

All family members need to be given a place in your system. When a member is excluded, victimized or is a perpetrator in the system without resolution or healing, a new member in the family system will often take on the burden or experience of a previous member of the system out of loyalty or love to give them a place in trying to resolve or heal the experience.

You may not even know Aunt Annabel or Great Uncle Harry, but there is a message of healing in understanding how their lives affected your thinking and your view of life.

Case Study 1* Erin came in to work with issues of grief and depression. She was struggling with food issues related to borderline anorexia and had difficulties keeping her finances balanced. She experienced loss in relationships over and over. In Resonance Repatterning sessions, she discovered that one of the primary issues with these struggles was the resonance she had with taking on the destiny of her brother who died a tragic death when she was 32. Through loyalty and love she was making a sacrifice of life energy through not eating, and processing loss after loss both financially and emotionally. Through a Family Systems repatterning, she worked with accepting the destiny of her brother’s death and received energetic permission in a visualization modality to continue in life and experience good with the blessings of her brother. As she continued to work, she found that there had been a pattern within her system that included loss of life through suicides and tragic deaths that had been repeated through generational imprints. The family had repeated this cyclic pattern of violence to self for generations. Erin had not had this information consciously, but when she started doing research, found that this was true. After working with ending the cycle of violence within her own life, Erin was then able to start to take nurture and feel as though she could take care of her life energy and savings.

Case Study 2:  Alex, a person who was working with issues of depression, worked on issues related to lack of money, and wanting to break away from his family so he could experience greater peace. One of his grandparents had lived in poverty and was ostracized by other family members. The conflict and experience of being victimized was translated into Alex’s life as depression and lack of vital energy. Out of loyalty and love, Alex was giving his grandparent a place in the family by taking on the characteristics of grief, depression and poverty. Through repatterning, Alex was able to give his grandfather a place in the system, and to resonate with taking the love from his grandparent as he placed him as the little one instead of taking the grandparent’s place in the system. In this way, he was released from the burden, and was able to feel more at ease, and at home in his own skin.

Case Study 3:  Karen was working on anxiety issues and moving towards experiencing life more fully. In fact, she would say repeatedly, “Every time I take action to solve my problems, it’s as if I am invisible. No one hears me. Nothing works out. It’s as if the Universe is against me.”

In a Family Systems session and the muscle-checking system used in Resonance Repatterning, the issue was identified as being related to an unresolved traumatic experience in her family. In checking further, it was found that it was related to her father. At the same time, Karen had delayed going to the dentist, and a positive action checked in over and over again through muscle-checking in her sessions that she needed to see a dentist. But, she could not seem to take the next step forward for self-care. It checked that this was related to an event related to her father. I asked Karen if this perhaps was an anniversary of a traumatic event in her family such as death, divorce, illness, or abuse. Karen was not sure. However, when Karen did her research, she found that her father, a veteran of war, had been removed from a mission during World War II due to an infection that required that he see a dentist. The results of the mission was that all the soldiers died. Her father was the only surviving person due to his need to be treated medically. He did not talk much about it in his life. The date of the mission in World War II checked in for the same week historically of the session itself!

Karen was carrying information of her father’s experience into her life as a way to honor him and the victims of war. Through a sacrifice of life in the present, an attempt was being made to bring this to light and to express the message of love for all the people in her system who experienced trauma, including both the perpetrators and victims. Through this process, she worked to end the internal cycle of violence through seeing them at peace.

In truth, we each have a part of ourselves that lives through the lens of perpetrator and victim. Awareness, acceptance, insight, compassion and forgiveness allow there to be more harmony and peace. This can show up internally as well when you sabotage or diminish the value of your own life through self-destructive thoughts and actions, addictions, internal blame, harmful habits, negative relationships, and can lead to less vital life energy overall.

When you experience the victim aspect, you may over exert without taking into account your own needs or blame others for your situation. This can show up as feeling like you have overdrawn on your emotional bank account. This leads to a sense of feeling powerlessness or having personal choice. In turn, fear, anger and depression affect how you see the world. In both cases, it creates more upset and conflict than serenity inside. It gets amplified in all your relationships: known and unknown!

The opportunity in working with family system issues and internalized effects of perpetrator and victim is to listen more deeply to the meaning behind your feelings. The conflict of generational disharmony may be speaking through your life today. And, in this moment, you can heal and contribute greater peace to your family system in your family line and for future generations. Making peace with each part of yourself and your family system allows you to then resonate with greater support, compassion and vital life energy to face life with more harmony in the present!

Taking the Compassionate Journey of Healing Within

I remember attending a conference in Mexico over a decade ago where a speaker talked about the necessary journey in our lives. She talked about life’s journey being about your spiritual evolution.

This evolution is more of a spiral than a straight line. So bringing mindfulness, kindness and understanding to your life is essential to reach your heart through joys, trials, and challenges so you take part in creating your own destiny through the compassionate journey of healing within.

This  journey shows up in the appointments you have with essential learning that are brought to the surface to  metabolize emotions in the process of your being human on this planet where there is so much to process.

The threshold of learning happens where and when you are challenged with external events that are paired with an inner conflict related to your feelings, attitudes, and beliefs. Some events in our lives seem to have greater gravitational force than others. Events of great joy as well as great sorrow take us into deeper dialogue with our souls, to the questions about the meaning of your own life and your purpose. These are particular times, no matter how difficult it seems related to the cultural, familial and gender expectations of you, you have the invitation to engage and embark on the adventure of taking the compassionate journey of healing within for growth and transformation.

Owning our story can be hard but not nearly as difficult as spending our lives running from it. Embracing our vulnerabilities is risky but not nearly as dangerous as giving up on love and belonging and joy—the experiences that make us the most vulnerable. Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.  ~Brene Brown

Creating the Compassionate Journey with Courage and Acceptance

Challenges show up in relationships, obstacles, forks in the road, and seeming dead ends.  The Universe uses everything to involve you in the journey: relationships, situations, emotions, etc. The choices that present themselves when difficulties show up, messages, or learning is what it is attempting to get your attention  to expand your awareness.

Challenges are here to awaken you and even if you’re awakening, life continuously gives you challenges and then the awakening accelerates and deepens. ~ Eckhart Tolle

An issue might keep showing up and then escalate to create even more pain and intensity until you are ready to sit with the meaning of the need for significant inner change. I have fondly called this “the lesson of the 2 x 4.”    I say fondly because it is often that is how much persuasion it takes to finally get that things are not working out no matter how many times attempted to get things to turn out another way.  You know the adage, Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.” ~ Unknown

Shame, guilt, hurt, anger, hopelessness, or fear can keep you from looking at another possibility for a new or broader vision of life. However, these feelings do point to the healing journey to transform us. It is important to work with these inner signals, to digest, metabolize and integrate them to take their higher lessons.  In a world where it is difficult to sit with anything or have time to process, taking time with your inner feelings is essential to create positive change in your wellness and well-being.

It’s very important that we re-learn the art of resting and relaxing. Not only does it help prevent the onset of many illnesses that develop through chronic tension and worrying; it allows us to clear our minds, focus, and find creative solutions to problems. ~Thich Nhat Hanh

Many times the desire to make something work out with the perception of the past is based on re-acting out something that needs your attention to heal and update. You might not have had the support or nurture to work out the original pain or situation at the time. However, tuning into the place that makes youvulnerable today creates the openness that allows you to bring awareness to the underlying need, feelings and beliefs that keep you entangled in the pattern from the past. It is essential to unlock the lesson from your unhealed limiting earlier experience to change the patterns you are living in the present.

The truth is that your current experience of life is based on your beliefs, thoughts and attitudes about yourself, the world and others. When you change your perception of what you are experiencing within, you change how you interact and respond to life allowing you to live more from your potential through greater connection to truth, love, and compassion for your inner needs and feelings. This, in turn, allows you to see more of your self. In doing so, you are then able to see more of others. Through empathy your compassion ripples out into the world to create new connections and new possibilities for being in the world.

Acceptance looks like a passive state, but in reality it brings something entirely new into this world. That peace, a subtle energy vibration, is consciousness. ~Eckhart Tolle

Building a Bridge to New Possibilities for Your Life

Resonance Repatterning © is a compassionate healing journey to unlock where, when and how a limiting or depleting situation, belief or attitude still affects your life  today. There are processes within the protocols that diffuse and release the disrupted, blocked or constricted energy that limit your ability to find a new way of interacting with life. The process also includes fusing or returning energy to your body-mind system that has been lost through trauma, loss, shock or pain so that you actually have more life energy to dedicate to the positive intentions you have for your life. This creates greater integrity in your wellness and well-being allowing you to experience more love, joy, sense of hope, feeling of being centered, and empowered.

Heavy Metals Have an Impact on Your Health

Sculpture in Big Rock Garden in Bellingham, Washington

 Heavy metals have an impact on your health Heavy metals are in your food, water, and environment affect how your brain processes memory, focus, as well as the overall capacity of your body-mind system. Obviously, input=output. Mental function is directly related to what you ingest, digest and filter through all of your senses.

How can you change the impact of heavy metals on your wellness and well-being? The following article details some insight as to where you might be ingesting them,  and steps you can take to create greater integrity in your wellness and well-being. 

Take Inventory of Your Environmental Toxins: You are exposed to a number of chemicals and irritants everyday. This has a direct impact on the demand placed on your body-mind system to process toxins. Decrease your exposure. Less stress on your body-mind system=more optimal life energy flow.

  1. Cadmium: automobile products (black rubber, seat covers, burned motor oil), evaporated milk, processed foods, sprays on fruits and vegetables and soft drinks
  2. Aluminum: deodorants, pots and pans, shampoos, storage wraps for foods, and antacids
  3. Lead: canned foods, leaded candle sticks, lead or soldered water pipes, lead paint, colored or glossy newsprint, soil, vehicle emissions, cigarette smoke, municipal water supplies (soft water and lead pipes), and some calcium supplements
  4. Mercury: dental fillings, fish, the preservative thimerasol in vaccines, coal-fired power plants and trash incinerators.
  5. Pesticides: agriculture, lawns, golf courses, and veterinary practice
  6. Personal and Household Products: According to The Brain Wash by Michelle Schoffro Cook, there are significant issues with products we use in our homes for the purpose of beauty and hygiene. A number of ingredients in shampoos, toothpaste, deodorant and perfume report significant negative effects on our central nervous system and cognitive function. Chemicals in mattresses, cleaners, carpets and dryer sheets contain many neurotoxins.

What Actions Can You Take to Support Your Brain’s Functioning?

Nutrition: In a study done by Dr. Steven Pratt, six foods are suggested to help preserve your health and fight the aging of the brain: pomegranate, blueberries, walnuts, spinach, almonds, and oranges. Researchers at Oxford University in England have found that  B12 plays an important role on mental function. Foods such as eggs, yogurt, tuna, salmon, rainbow trout, clams, swiss cheese, milk, chicken and beef contain B12. For vegetarians, wheat germ or cereals fortified with B12 is a good alternative if you are not getting it from a supplement. Drink green tea to protect your brain. Eat organic dark chocolate. Get the anti-inflammatory benefits of ginger, celery and cherries. Cook with sage, turmeric, fennel, marjoram, thyme and cilantro.

To support detox:* Eat whole foods. Decrease intake of processed foods. Include olives, olive oil, onions, purple and red grapes, garlic and organic dark leafy greens in your diet. Limit sugar and alcohol consumption to improve the functioning of your immune filtering system. Filter your drinking water. Include a probiotic such as acidophilus bifidus as part of your care for your digestion and balance of friendly bacteria. *Vitamin E, C, magnesium, Selenium,Coenzyme Q10, and Ginko Biloba have been identified as antioxidant support for the brain. Work with a certified nutritional health practitioner to help you, if needed.

Go Outside: Physical activity that includes cardiovascular fitness also improves your cognitive functioning in the areas of processing speed, attention and motor skills. Find a way to keep variations of cycling, swimming and walking in your routine. Stepping away from the electromagnetic field radiation from electronic devices also helps to re-energize and bring more clarity to your thinking.  Take a walk on the beach or next to saltwater to get negative ions to strengthen autonomic nerve and cellular function. If you cannot get to saltwater, burn a rock salt lamp in your home with a non-petroleum candle.  Using houseplants such as spider plants near your computer also create more oxygen-rich air to breathe for oxygen delivery to the brain. The brain and the nervous system need the most oxygen in your body for optimal functioning.

Expand and Share your Life Purpose Gifts: Stay connected to what interests and inspires you. Learn something new! Take in beauty. Take in color through foods, art, and creativity. Join a group to keep you inspired and connected to others. Volunteer. Nurture  joy and love by offering it to yourself and others. On the Chinese Medicine Wheel this is Fire Element warming Metal Element to creating harmony and balance for wisdom and a rich inner life. As summer approaches this is a wonderful time to activate these qualities in your life!

It Takes Harmony and Balance for Wellness and Well-being

Often, in working with Resonance Repatterning ®, we refer to creating greater harmony and balance in your body-mind system. While I have heard some healing practitioners speak to the need only for harmony, this article speaks to the need for harmony as well as balance to experience greater integrity in your wellness and well-being.

What is Harmony?

If you have every played an instrument, you know that it takes at least two tones or notes to create harmony. As a child I used to sing with my brother as he played guitar. He would sing the melody, and I would sing the harmonizing melody to his lead. The chords he played themselves were a number of notes with intervals that created greater tonal richness than playing a single note at a time. The harmonic overtones and vibrations carried a melodic communication, as well as a relationship between notes that created emotion, rhythm, frequency and meaning.

Your body-mind system works in concert with communication between cells, tissues, organs, glands, muscles, and Nervous System. Endocrine, neurotransmitter, enzyme and hormone function are affected by these connections and vice versa.

Here is an example from Dr. Eric H. Chudler from the University of Washington of this InteractionHow Nervous System Interacts with Other Systems of the Body

 What is Balance?

Balance is related to the impact of one element or tone with another. Imagine singing with someone else, or playing an instrument that is either too LOUD or too soft. In either case, the full harmonic effect is lost as one note drowns out another.

Another example is related to cooking. A several years ago, I used a recipe from a Hallmark card for Irish Soda bread.. The recipe called for ¼ cup of salt. Because I trusted the brand, I proceeded even though I wondered about the amount. I’m sure you know the outcome. The bread tasted like a very salty pretzel, and it was basically inedible. Too much of this ingredient in the blend of this recipe changed the overall quality of the overall function to create this slightly sweet bread.

In Chinese Medicine, your organ systems serve each other through both nurture and limitation to enhance your overall quality of life. Through shared responsibility, each organ relates to other organs in ways that give nurture, support, energy, detoxification, and circulation thus contributing to your overall health.

 What happens when one part of your body-mind system moves out of balance?

There is a loss in ability to communicate with the rest of your body-mind system in a way that works with the overall process. When this happens, other parts of your body-mind system can begin to create more force to compensate, or could slow down, block or interrupt communication when overwhelmed.

In Resonance Repatterning, pain is a blockage, interruption or disruption of energy. Creating better energy flow relies on both harmonizing and creating greater balance between your organ and meridian systems.

What impacts Harmony and Balance in Your System?

A number of factors including stress, interruption of sleep cycles, poor diet, toxins, lack of sunlight, or even emotional overwhelm over time can create imbalance in communication between the cells and organ systems of your body.

Being able to listen to the information your body reports to you through your energy levels, emotions, and repetitive patterns you notice in your daily wake and sleep cycles lets you know where you would benefit in creating greater harmony and balance in of your health, thought processes, limiting beliefs and attitudes that impact your sense of well-being.

For example, we know that increased stress can change heart beat, breath rate, blood pressure, and energy flow in your body. Current science speaks to the relationship between your physical, emotional, mental cause and effect issues.

In Resonance Repatterning, harmonizing even one of these levels has a holographic impact on other levels of your wellness and well-being. You are wired for success and self-healing. The inter-connected communication system in your body-mind system allows you to experience greater harmony and balance.  And, this process works with the wisdom from your own body-mind system to identify where and how restore greater harmony, communication and balance in your body-mind system.

The Nurture of Color for Your Wellness and Well-Being

As spring unfolds in color, light and sound, are you feeling a change in mood? The nurture of color in plants in flowers, vegetables, herbs, trees, and fruits are gifts from Mother Nature. These colors are frequencies of nurture for your wellness and well-being.

Over this past weekend, my family and I created a full-spectrum meal with herbs, vegetables and fruits. Every color and scent was beauty and the intensity of flavor was welcomed as a gift from sunlight, earth, water and color working together to create wholeness-health. Like plants, we need sunlight, water and the frequencies of the Earth. Your body creates life energy based on the quality of your relationship with these sources.

This is in stark contrast to junk food that has been removed many times from the natural connection to sunlight through processing or synthetic substitution. There’s a good reason your mother made you eat your vegetables and fruits before you left the table when you were developing muscles, bones, teeth, and brain/nervous system.

In fact, when you look at fruits and vegetables you’ll find amazing messages from mother nature about purpose and health.

Mother Nature provides growth, balance, harmony in so many ways.  Here are just some of the benefits of making sure you eat more color.

1) Red: Red foods promote heart health. Of the top 20 anti-oxidant fruits and vegetables, seven are red. These include strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, cherries, red grapes, beets and red peppers. By including these antioxidant foods in your diet you can reduce damage caused by free radicals in your environment and in what you ingest. These foods contain Vitamin E.

2) Orange-Yellow: Yellow foods help reduce hypertension. Eat carrots, sweet potatoes, corn, yellow potatoes, oranges, grapefruit, mangoes, cantaloupe, pumpkin. squash, apricots, bananas and the spice, Turmeric. Cook with onions and garlic. These foods contain Vitamins B and A.

3) Green: Green is a master healer protecting against cancer, degeneration of vision, and protects the heart. Eat cabbage, avocado, spinach, kale, watercress, parsley, okra, brussel sprouts, broccoli, Romaine lettuce, collard greens, celery, kiwis, and asparagus. Add green herbs like basil, chives, sage, etc. in your cooking.

The chlorophyll in green foods has been associated with inhibiting cancer and slowing the growth of bacteria. The lutein in spinach and kale help ward off macular degeneration and cataracts.

The super antioxidant alpha-lipoic acid in asparagus, avocados, artichoke and raw spinach defends against oxidation assaults, stroke, heart attack and cataracts. It also helps to protect your brain and strengthen your memory.

Avocados and alfalfa sprouts help lower your cholesterol. Asparagus helps strengthen capillary walls. Artichokes help to treat liver toxicity. Broccoli fights cancer and blocks estrogen receptors in breast cancer cells. One serving of two medium kiwis has twice the Vitamin C of one orange. Drinking green tea has antioxidant benefits. Foods in the green range contain chlorophyll.

4) Blue-Purple/Violet: Blueberries  are stars in protecting the brain. Known as the “starberry” to Native Americans, blueberries contain Vitamin C, A, and B. Purple plants hold the frequency of Vitamin D. These include eggplants, purple grapes, raisins, blackberries, and other berries in the blue-purple range.

How to Get Started: 1) Work with “ROYGBIV” (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet): Take inventory of the colors you eat most often. Make a list of colors in the color wheel that you are missing. 2) Spend time in the produce/organic section when shopping to find these colors. 3) Choose the most vibrantly colored fruits and vegetables. They have the most nutrition. 4) Find ways to include more color in meals and snacks by adding fruit and/or raisins to cereal, trail mixes, salads, and yogurt. Add different veggies to your salads and dips. Eat fruit as a snack. 5) Look up new recipes for ways to use fruit and/or vegetables you are missing in your diet. 6) Eat more salads and/or make more meals throughout the week that are  vegetarian!

7) Check out the book, The Color Code: A Revolutionary Eating Plan for Optimum Health by James A. Joseph, Ph. D, Daniel A. Nadeau, M.D. and Anne Underwood

5 Messages for Life from the Green Heart of the Forest

In taking a walk this morning through the forest, I was looking for evidence that winter had turned the corner, and that the Earth was opening to spring.What I experienced was much more than I expected. Entering the woods behind my home,the ground was soft with both leaves and plants that had mixed with the earthen floor. There was a tenderness that supported the complex structure of this old growth cedar forest.

These five messages from the green heart of the forest are beneficial for many areas of living day-to-day for business, health and wellness, relationship and greater sense of well-being.

1. Footwork

Sometimes you’re not quite sure what direction to move or how to plan for next steps. Being tender to yourself in your process as you choose your steps is beneficial. This will help you to nourish your inner needs, and  that allows you to build structures that are sustainable and enduring.

 

 

2. Nurture on the Path

~photo by Kimberly Rex

In the forest, all of what is living and all that has been let go is useful. Trees that have fallen or been snapped apart are nurseries for new growth. Leaves cover the forest floor to continue feeding new life.

Finding a branch, a trunk or a level place to grow supports the journey.

Starting a new project, considering change or entering a new phase of your life can be nourished by your experiences from the past, and can include mentors and teachers who have offered or offer encouragement and insight to life. Call upon the wisdom of your experiences and others who have been in similar situations. This can also be a message about finding others working with similar issues or projects to study with or network to everyone’s mutual benefit.

3. Learn from Obstacles

~photo by Kimberly Rex

Tangled branches on a path that you thought would be clear show up as places in your life where your life energy is still dedicated. When this happens spend time in this space looking more deeply where you are to take in what is involved.

When there are setbacks, indecision and difficulties with timing, it’s an opportunity to consider the pace of your life and your plans. Look more deeply at where your inner needs are not being heard. Are you in rhythm with life? Is there something that you are not seeing? Are you acknowledging your needs for quality time, food, sunlight, water, relationship and rest?

When we feel stuck, going nowhere–even starting to slip backward–we may actually be backing up to get a running start.~Dan Millman

4. Gratitude

~photo by Kimberly Rex

After walking about 15 minutes, I came to a steep run-off that looked down to a rapid running stream of water. I considered climbing down to the stream, yet realized that I was unwilling to make the climb back up to the top. Instead, I breathed in the air of nurture from the forest all around. While I stood there, I placed my hand on a huge cedar tree, and felt its dampness glistening in the sun. I brought both hands and then my heart to this tree, and as I’ve done many times in the past, thanked the trees for this wonderful life-giving oxygen.

Gratitude for the path and each step makes life more enjoyable. When you are unable to take a next step or feel discouraged, frustrated or anxious, being grateful for what is in front of you that perhaps you haven’t yet acknowledged as resources, guidance, and support helps you re-center and experience life-giving energy.

5. Archways and Doorways

~photo by Kimberly Rex

As I placed my back to the cedar tree I saw a wonderful archway that I hadn’t seen on my journey into the forest. I more felt centered, more optimistic and hopeful. It felt like a wonderful invitation to move through a new doorway.

All experience is an arch, to build upon. ~Henry Adams

Once you shift your resonance and perception of what is happening within, new doorways and possibilities open. Listen for guidance, and follow your heart. New possibilities await when you are awake to them.
