Man’s Search for Meaning: How it Relates to Resonance Repatterning

 

I was first introduced to Viktor Frankl’s work while training as a Resonance Repatterning practitioner. His  life and this book’s contribution relate directly to the benefits and process  of Resonance Repatterning.

. Logotherapy and Man’s Search for Meaning offer an exceptional view of the human spirit’s potential put into action especially when met with challenging situations as your greatest quest for experiencing meaning  in your life.

 Viktor Frankl was a psychiatrist  before being a prisoner during the Holocaust in Nazi concentration camps, and separated from his family.

Although he would never see his family again, his ability to connect to the love he experienced for them, take this deeply into his spiritual interior and apply the principles of freedom, responsibility and orientation toward love allowed him to create meaning for his life. After he was freed from the concentration camp, he continued his work  by creating Logotherapy helping many different people heal through changing their attitudes towards their life and challenging situations through finding meaning.

The following  are some of the principles in searching for meaning. They are paired with how Resonance Repatterning would benefit your life with your search for meaning in this process.

Meaning

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.~Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

He defined despair as suffering without meaning. Life and spirit purpose in any moment is related to the perspective you give your experience. Even in difficult situations, there is the opportunity to find a higher meaning or message that only through your life’s journey and experience can be culled from this trying situation.

Many times in Resonance Repatterning sessions, the process travels to this place through acknowledging that everything is used by the Universe for your personal growth. By realizing this truth, it allows you to change what it is you can in your life through positive actions. Updating your personal material from the past related to beliefs, attitudinal patterns allow you to step more fully into the present so you are more able to take next steps with your positive intentions for you life.

By doing so, you are connecting to authorship in creating your future through this inner alchemy., changing difficulties into new possibilities through your transformed perception for greater inner balance , harmony, wellness, and well-being.

Freedom

Within human circumstance are situations and events that create both positive and negative emotions. Frankl described the choice of response, no matter the content, as the greatest capacity of the human spirit.

Choosing to practice compassion for ourselves and others is not only an emotional practice, but, also one that creates greater longevity, stress reduction and health.

As simple as how you sit at a red light, to as complex as a loss, grieving, health crisis, or within the content of experiencing a disappointment, your ability to have access to choice in how you take care of yourself or treat others can make all the difference in how you feel, how your relationships fare, and how your body takes care of itself through thick and thin.

Resonance Repatterning sessions allow you to shift within through natural healing modalities and disciplines that build greater vitality, and expanded vision for what is possible in your life. Within the context of the work is the opportunity to change your attitude about a situation while building perseverance and strength for meeting challenges in a more empowered way.

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms~to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.~Viktor Frankl

Responsibility

The word responsibility literally means the ability to respond. Through this lens, it is possible to enter what we call the Point of Choice in Resonance Repatterning to move towards taking a stand to whatever conditions that are or feel unchangeable in your life. Just knowing that you have a choice makes this practice of taking action or a pause, creates greater space for your own need for love, compassion, joy and feeling of empowerment. Your ability to respond rather than to react with knee-jerk habitual thoughts, expectations, words and actions, truly leads to new growth and experiences in your life.

Point of Choice
http://www.windowstotheheart.net

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom..~Viktor Frankl

Orientation towards Love

Have you heard the saying, “Love is what holds the Universe together?” Frankl’s love for his wife in the concentration camp, he said, whether she was alive or had perished, was a connection to her and this love allowed  him to call of the capacity of their bond to get through the worst experience in his life.

Whatever connects you to love whether that be a sunset, a picture, a puppy, a song, birds, a family member, or a beautiful memory, the power and strength of seeing the world through the eyes of love makes it possible to move through and beyond challenges and despair.

In Resonance Repatterning sessions, the work encompasses building your inner capacitor of your heart for wellness and well-being which then builds greater capacity for love in your relationships with other people, the planet and all sentient beings.

Those who have ‘why’ to live, can bear with almost any “how.”~Viktor Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning

There are thousands of Positive Action possibilities for repatterning sessions. An example is using an anchor image of this “Why?” as a great way to build your capacitor for yourself and your relationships. Picturing something that quickly connects you to love, or, working with a time you and the person you are in relationship with had a loving or fond experience goes a long way to creating greater loving energy in your life.

How to Ground Yourself to Get Centered and Oriented to the Present

Grounding helps you center and keep you oriented to what is going on in the present.  It allows you to see more, and consider the next step or decision you are making. It can help you set boundaries on the continual inflow of material you have to sift through to process. When you become overwhelmed and confused, grounding helps you center and feel more fully present and aware. It is a simple yet powerful tool for mindfulness and well-being.

Spending time outdoors has diminished over the past decades due to jobs, transportation and focus on
leisure technology.  With the speed of change, increasing intensity and transitions you have to handle  in just one day, the simple act of grounding can help you feel more calm, centered and energized.

Get your feet onto the Earth for grounding.

By grounding yourself, you become more aware of where you are so you can set boundaries on the continual inflow of material you have to sift through to process. When you become overwhelmed and confused, grounding helps you center and feel more fully present and aware. It is a simple yet powerful tool for mindfulness and well-being.

The research is in about the importance of grounding for physical and emotional health.
Physically, grounding reduces inflammation, pain and stress. Emotionally, grounding has a beneficial impact on  decreasing the impact of addictive behavior, anxiety, grief and depression. In both cases, grounding helps to build a sense of greater safety and trust because you are more aware of your choices and possibilities.

The following 12  grounding activities and modalities will give you a simple, yet powerful menu to use in your life for how to ground yourself to center yourself and orient yourself to be more present.

1. Go outside: In a  book entitled, Earthing by Dr. Sinatra, the need for spending time on the Earth with bare feet to energize the body-mind system is explored. The book speaks of the electromagnetic connection and relationship between your body and the planet itself. The earth’s surface is negatively charged and has an unlimited supply of “free” electrons.
If your body has lots of positively charged free radicals (creating inflammation), the Earth’s free electrons can help to neutralize them.

How To:  a) Get out into a grassy section of the earth and take your shoes off. b) Walk barefoot on the beach. c) Lie down on the Earth and look up at the sky. d) Sit on rocks e) or better yet, sit in a chair for 30 minutes with your bare feet resting on the ground. Read more about earthing here: Earthing: The Most Important Health Discovery Ever?

2. Diet: After a long day or week of  many appointments, you might feel disoriented. Sit down
while you eat. Choose more whole and natural foods to energize and ground your energy.  Eat root vegetables like potatoes, beets, carrots, onions, garlic, radishes,turnips, horseradish,  Daikon radish, rutabaga, parsnips and kolrabi. Decrease sugar and caffeine.

3. Feed Your Earth Element: Earth Element on the Chinese Five Element and Meridian Wheel is about nurture, digestion and support. Eat the following foods to enrich this connection.a) Grains: Millet b) Vegetables: Sweet corn, all squash: (acorn, butternut, Hokkaido, Hubbard, spaghetti, pumpkin) shitake mushrooms, beets, carrots, onions, parsnips, rutabaga, collards, chard, artichoke, sweetpeas, and string beans c) Fruits: sweet apples, figs, cantaloupe, sweet orange, honeydew, tangelo, raisins, sweet grapes, papaya, dates, and tangerine d) Fish: salmon, tuna, swordfish, sturgeon e) Nuts: Almonds, pecans, walnuts, sesame seeds, and sunflower seeds.

4. Feed Your Earth Chakra: Eat red foods like root vegetables such as beets, rutabagas, garlic, ginger, turnips, potatoes, and parsnips.  Eat red food like apples or pomegranates with the color of this chakra to feel connected to the energy of Earth Chakra. which in Ayurvedic Medicine is related to survival, stability and safety.

5. Aromatherapy: Earth Element focuses on smell and scents. Use the scents of Cedar, clove and Balsam Fir or your favorite scents to help you feel grounded and connected to the Earth.

6. Polarity Points: Work into the joints of the little toes and fingers with your opposite hand and pull from the base.

7. Get your hands, face or body into mud or clay. This will help you feel directly connected to
the  Earth itself.

8. Dance, Drum or Sing: Dancing barefoot or drumming with your hands helps you to feed the energy circuits of your body-mind system. When you sing, you are treating yourself to a bath of personal sound frequency. Drumming energizes your Earth Element through joy, motion, rhythm, connection to your heart and the Earth.

9. Take a vacation from distractions:  Make a space or time daily for centering  and
nurturing yourself. This can be done through meditation, journaling,
walking in nature or gardening.

10. Express Gratitude: Keep a Gratitude Journal or make it a point to take inventory of that for
which you are grateful. Gratitude orients you to the present and to life-energizing support.

11. Breathe: The Buddhist Soft Belly Meditation helps to make space for you and your feelings.
Most of us breathe with only the upper third of our body.  Breathing all the way down into the belly helps you to feel more embodied, and allows space for awareness, openness, compassion, and mercy for yourself in the
moment.

12. Take inventory of what needs nurture and support in your life: Get in touch through the Soft Belly Meditation with places in your life where you have felt continual fear, anxiety or felt like a victim.
Make time to listen to yourself and find someone safe with whom you can share where you will be listened to with respect and support.

Is It Stress Speaking? The Physical and Emotional Signals

Your emotions are signals  directly related to how you respond to stress in any given moment.  Stress can build due to a hectic lifestyle or  resonance with  the chaos of  problems in life. When you feel as though you cannot effect change, anxiety and fear can increase.  The work of Dr. Claire Weekes, an Australian MD  who is known for her healing work with people with panic attacks addressed the emotional and physical components of stress. The physical signals of anxiety include an increase in adrenaline production, quickened heartbeat, and activation of the Sympathetic Nervous System.  The emotional signals  take many forms including agitation, anxiety, fear,  and lead to fatigue and depression. when your body is  increasingly sensitized to the cycle of physical alert   Anxiety also affects the functioning of your thinking, creates memory imprints and activates fight or flight reactions.  Dr. Weekes called this “Second Fear” manifesting as confusion, bewilderment and fear through  de-energizing thoughts, feelings and physical tension.

According to Bruce Lipton, a molecular biologist and author of Biology of Belief, the impact of stress over time impacts your health, sense of well-being, and even the interpersonal relations in global communities. Biology of Belief book link

4 billion bits of information travel into your Nervous System per second, yet you are only able to process about 2% of that information consciously. Much of this information stored within your body-mind system are beliefs, early teaching, unprocessed residue of material from earlier experiences, and/or generational imprints. Additional factors include your attitude and concept of time about what is happening.

As an example, it’s the difference between believing  There’s a light at the end of the tunnel”  and “The light at the end of the tunnel is an oncoming train.”  Your sense of urgency, completion and intensity affect the impact of your experience. Shifting perspective makes all the difference in the world to your body-mind system!

Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lie our growth and our freedom. ~Viktor E. Frankl

The analogy of cellular function and communication offer a good perspective. Cells respond with a binary response  through either orienting towards life and engaging in communication between systems more optimally when there is a felt sense of safety. Perceived unresolved stress or threat creates a disruption of life energy flow and the need for protection or shutdown. This, in turn, decreases communication between internal systems, and results in life-depleting or disrupted flow of  life energy.  Coping with challenges and conflict issues in a way that leads to experiencing a greater sense of safety, trust and perspective based on the present is vital.  When you are seen, heard and feel understood, this creates a space for resolution and healing. When this happens, your emotional outlook changes, and  the functioning  of your immune system also benefits.

Anxiety and stress can manifest in repetitive emotional reactions to patterns or beliefs in relationships, finances, cultural interchange, expectations  for  life, gender, and groups.  When you feel overwhelmed, depressed and disconnected from others you are cut off from energizing relationship.  Blame, anger, and chaos limit the ability to sustain life-energizing interactions.

   So what can you do when faced with stress or overwhelm? Dr. Weekes recommended acceptance instead of resistance, letting time pass, and allowing the body to  let go of tension in what she called the sensation of floating

An empowering tool that will help you is a “Pause for Centering.”   Listen to this recording to experience this modality and its benefits: http://kimberlyrex.audioacrobat.com/download/PauseforCentering.mp3

The next time you are feeling stress over a conversation, sitting in rush hour traffic, put on hold on the phone, or need a few minute’s solace, give yourself this gift of peace. It is a way to activate positive life energy, to create greater inner peace and harmony in your life and relationship with others.

Every Sound Counts: Insight into How Sound Heals

“There is nothing more genuine than breaking away from the chorus to learn the sound of your own voice.” ~ Po Bronson

We live in an ocean of sound and frequencies. From the sound of your mother’s voice, a bird’s song, or the turning over of the engine in your car, every sound counts. These vibrations give meaning to your world. Everything has a vibrational signature including the moment that registered as you when you were born. Sound frequencies express themselves in every aspect of your life. When you know this, the realization of the importance of acknowledging your inner sound, your expressions and relationship with your environment expands.

Music is associated with the emotional body, and helps to build harmonic structures for healing. This can be seen in the work of sound therapists, Qi Gong Medical practitioners and in the work of Resonance Repatterning©. When unresolved emotions or traumatic experiences are stored in the body, they get stored as frequencies. Sound, melody and intervals (space between two notes) serve as energetic tools to enliven, break up, and restore greater harmony and balance to the body-mind field.

   According to Fabien Maman, author of The Role of Music in the 21st Century, musical tones create physiological effects at different levels.

  • Specific musical notes are linked to specific acupuncture points, and stimulate or tonify life energy flow.
  • Melodies create responses at the molecular level.
  • Harmony works with the ganglia (nerve clusters and sympathetic nervous system including the heart, glands and involuntary muscles and endocrine system (system necessary for normal growth and development, reproduction and homeostasis).
  • Resonating vibrational frequencies created by harmonic overtones link with your nervous system, chakras, and subtle energy bodies.

We’ve all had the experience of listening to music to change our moods. Music can help you feel energized or calm down. The work of Don Campbell who published The Mozart Effect has been used in hospitals and schools to help create greater harmony and healing. Accelerated Learning for new language acquisition has been employed with the use of Baroque Music through the Lozanov Technique successfully for learning. Music with the frequencies of the Earth underneath have been used to calm people with anxiety or attention deficit disorder through the work of Heart Math Institute. Music moves us and generates change at the emotional, mental and physical levels.

In a world of increased mechanical sound and electric music, we have been impacted by a depletion of natural and tonal diversity. Jill Purce, a sound therapist, acknowledges the vital importance of making your own sound to serve the need for connection to self-healing and the Earth. She cites that our separation from care of the Earth as humanity is directly related to our separation from making natural sound.

Not only is it important to make sounds which vibrate through the bones and systems of our own bodies, it is important to hear them. When we stop listening to the natural sounds found in the forests and jungles, we sacrifice part of our sound ecosystem, and lose part of our connection to that which nourishes us all. Jonathon Goldman speaks to the fact that each and every tone in these systems are integral to the health of the bigger picture.

Your own voice can actually help you feel more grounded, process emotions, and feel supported. For thousands of years, song has served as a way to express emotion as a connection to one another through storytelling, to the Earth, the Heavens to the greater All That Is. There is good reason for this. Your voice creates vibration. Your ears energize your brain. Bringing song back into your life can serve as an empowering natural healing tool.

Working with the natural vibrational qualities of your own voice and acoustic instruments creates a fuller spectrum of harmonics to impact change in your life. In fact, according to Sharry Edwards, a sound frequency researcher, the human voice can serve to identify issues on the emotional, mental and physical levels. Missing tonal frequencies can identify and measure dis-stress, dis-ease and wellness. In Resonance Repatterning® sessions, tones are checked for resonance regarding frequency material in your body-mind system. Shifting frequencies literally changes radio channels at the energetic level of life for healing.

In a universe of vibration, every sound counts!

Resonating with Optimism and Taking Unhesitating Action with Your Positive Intentions

As we move towards spring, it’s important to look at what you have been feeling related to you own life and aspirations through resonating with optimism  and unhesitating action with your positive intentions. In nature, winter is a time of seeming dormancy, however, underneath the surface there is a recollection and conservation of energy for new life and possibilities. With the increase of hours of daylight and warmth new plants emerge with the encouragement of the sun and temperature.

“Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart.  She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow it up again fairer and stronger.”  Hugh Macmillan

In the same way, you, too, can access your vital energy for positive change. Your resonance with emotion that has been delegated for transformation sets the stage for the kind of energy and change you experience within and how you experience life in the world.

Every emotion is a signal that points to a response or reaction to something in your life either in the present or in response to past events or experiences. These emotions correlate with both coherent and non-coherent energy, and have a direct relationship to how you respond to life in any given moment.

As plants in spring respond to nourishment from the exterior world, they first resonate with taking nurture from the soil, the air, the rain and sun. They are oriented to what is life-enhancing. As they move up into the light, they trans-form through expansion. At the same time, they are also grounded in their roots and core in the process of creating new possibilities.

In Resonance Repatterning® your resonance is where your life energy is dedicated. If your life energy is dedicated more to fear, hate, anger, grief or worry, you are not open to being able to take what you need from life to nourish you or experience life’s gifts in the present. You are more likely to feel de-energized overall by the scope of these emotions over time when untended. In sessions, I refer to this material as taking “emotional real estate.”

What changes where your life energy is dedicated? Your emotions point to an underlying unmet need that has not yet been heard, acknowledged or understood. Anger can be unfinished business from the past, fear can be from a limiting belief that has been reinforced over time rooted in an earlier experience, grief can be from a separation or loss,  and worry can be from an anxious state that has not yet been resolved through your Nervous System. When these emotions rule your inner world, they can lead to depression, isolation, pessimism, and physical dis-ease. This does not allow for expansion or ability to orient towards what is life-energizing.

“To let go is to release the images and emotions, the grudges and fears, the clingings and disappointments of the past that bind our spirit.” ~Jack Kornfield

The beauty of working with Resonance Repatterning is the knowledge that all emotions have coherence and non-coherence purpose. Your anger can move you towards optimism, your fear can uncover courage, your grief can lead you to inspiration, and your hate can lead you to greater compassion. Through a session’s work, coherent roots of support and nurture in the present emerge through healing your core essence on the emotional, mental, physical and spirit levels. By doing so, you can be more in tune with the nourishing state of inner freedom and choice.

   As we approach the season of new possibilities, spring, where would you like to dedicate your life energy?  

Where do you need more life energy for your positive intentions?

This is your personal invitation to experience a session designed for this purpose entitled, Resonating with Optimism and Taking unhesitating Action with Your Positive Intentions.

Creating Harmony and Balance in Your Giving and Receiving in Relationships

Creating Harmony and Balance in Your Giving and Receiving in Relationships

Resonance Repatterning® works with a number of healing disciplines including the work of Bert Hellinger’s Family Systems material. This work is a valuable for creating harmony and balance between giving and receiving in your relationships enhancing your ability to take what is nourishing into your body-mind system, personal relationships, and your interactions in the world.
Bert Hellinger speaks to the need for order or balance to interact with others in a way that brings meaning, dignity, respect, healing and love. Creating harmony and balance in the process of giving and receiving allows you to remain centered, respectful of both your needs, and the needs of others in the process.

Giving

There are some limits to giving and taking. When you come from a place of an open heart you can offer the possibility of knowing that whatever the situation, the other person or persons are individuals with unique and specific beliefs, patterns and perspective in their life. You can only give what you have and when you have the energy to give. This can range from money, experience, love, time and energy. You cannot give what you do not have.
In the same way, your expectations for particular results or outcome when you give to another person is only in balance when there is a respect for the free will of the other person. Being aware of another’s limits is very important. Imbalance within ourselves can happen when we try to take the burden or responsibility from someone else, and try to carry it for them. Accepting a circumstance or where a person is in their life at the time allows them the respectful possibility of dignity and growth.
Co-dependence often shows up as non-coherent “giving.” Many times what starts out as the need and hope for being the rescuer, often ends up leading to resentment, and results in feeling like a victim. Resentment might also lead to greater inner frustration, as well as creating outward blame which then creates the role or perception of being a persecutor. All of this can take a toll on your relationship, your health and well-being.

“I used to spend so much time reacting and responding to everyone else that my life had no direction. Other people’s lives, problems, and wants set the course for my life. Once I realized it was okay for me to think about and identify what I wanted, remarkable things began to take place in my life.”
~ Melody Beattie

Receiving

In any relationship, there is both give and receiving. In giving and receiving, it is important to resonate with not only giving what you have, but to take only what you need meaning what is good for you. This is learned very early in life based on family patterns observed and learned that translate into beliefs, unconscious patterns and systemic beliefs based on loyalty to your family attitudes and patterns.
Looking at these patterns involves looking more deeply to the internal places of your conflict and fears related to receiving. Underlying unconscious material that keep your from receiving what benefits you could be related to guilt, mistrust, or need to protect yourself. Your reactions in relationships today might also stem from loyalty to your family’s systemic way of being, as a way to demonstrate love for a family member based on your unconscious need to continue to be included in your family of origin.

Resonance=Attraction

Everything that happens to you is a reflection of what you believe about yourself. We cannot outperform our level of self-esteem. We cannot draw to ourselves more than we think we are worth. ~ Iyanla Vanzant

What we resonate with, we experience in life. Our internal beliefs whether they are conscious or being played out through unconscious material from decades or generations of beliefs, thoughts, habits, and behavior that impact your life and relationships. At the level of resonance, you choose relationships based on your need to work out the places in your life that are unhealed or resolved.
You inherently choose partners, work, and living situations that amplify the patterns in your system, and those needed for healing. This is why the characteristics or patterns of your relationships and interactions with the world seem to be playing out over and over again.
A client of mine once said, “My relationships are the same every time. Different person, but same material.”
This is the reason it is important to access unconscious personal, family and generational patterns to transform these patterns into more coherent patterns of love, freedom, wisdom and balance in every area of your life.

 Here is your opportunity to create greater harmony and balance in your relationships through transforming your limiting beliefs, attitudes and patterns related to giving and receiving no matter where you live on the planet.
