Positive change in one's life is most always
welcome, especially when that change banishes limitations and leads to
a more productive and fruitful life.
But change is not always an easy thing to
accomplish. Sometimes, one needs a guiding or helping hand to ensure
that the proper steps are being taken toward the ultimate goal of
enlightenment, success and freedom.
In modern-day life, there are numerous avenues
that are said to lead to healing and fulfillment. While some of these
methods are referred to as "traditional" methods, others require a bit
more faith and open-mindedness, a willingness to accept the unknown and
the unseen. One of these methods is Holographic Repatterning.
Holographic Repatterning (HR) was developed by
Chloe Faith Wordsworth over a 25-year period during which she studied
and practiced many systems of healing. She created this new system of
self-healing by synthesizing acupuncture, polarity therapy, brain
integration and other methods, along with her knowledge of psychology,
physics, holograms and sound frequencies.
In layman's terms, Holographic Repatterning is a
process that enables one to identify and transform the unconscious,
life-depleting responses that might be responsible for pain, sickness,
trauma and other problems. The unconscious or subconscious mind,
according to classical Freudian psychoanalysis, is a part of the mind
that stores repressed memories or harmful programming from childhood -
"You'll never amount to anything;" "you can't be an actor, you'll
starve;" "you better be grateful for any job you can get."
The theory of repression maintains that some
experiences are too painful to be reminded of, so they are tucked away,
far from the waking mind. These painful, repressed memories are said to
manifest themselves in neurotic or psychotic behavior. Since the
unconscious mind does not distinguish between what is real and what it
perceives as reality, true change comes from altering what is stored in
In Holographic Repatterning, the concept of
"resonance" is at the core. It has been said that energy pulsates at
different rates or frequencies. As humans are composed of energy, their
thoughts, feelings, organs and very tissues also vibrate or resonate -
some at higher frequencies than others.
"Understanding that we are a pulsing field of
frequencies opens the possibility for change: thoughts, feelings and
problems are all frequencies and frequencies can be brought into phase
with what is coherent. The HR process gives us the means to identify
those frequencies that are non-coherent and to bring them into phase
with life-enhancing frequencies," points out the Web site www.Holographic.org.
There are many factors that can cause these
frequencies to lose their optimal pulsation. Whatever the cause, this
negative resonance often results in poor health, unhappy relationships
and/or limitations in many aspects of life. What Holographic
Repatterning seeks to do is identify this negative resonance and then
transform it. The process is akin to changing the frequency of a radio
station so that static-filled noise is replaced by a clear, resounding
In order to change the harmful patterns, they must
first be uncovered. In Holographic Repatterning, this is done through
muscle checking, i.e., applied kinesiology. By muscle checking a
client's arm while the client says a statement out loud, the
practitioner is able to discover the structure of these harmful
patterns as well as tell from which part of the body these
life-depleting beliefs or habits are originating.
From the Web site www.Repatterning.com:
"Holographic Repatterning takes this aspect of
applied kinesiology and applies it within a simple but comprehensive
framework of 'yes'/'no' questions in order to derive a 'body response'
- strong/weak; positive/negative; on/off - to a series of questions
designed to get to the root of any problem."
Again, the concept that the body, as well as its
hidden dysfunctions, are made up of energy is critical in this step.
The entire process is a six-step journey that
begins with orientation/preparation. This helps the client
achieve comfort and trust about HR and the practitioner.
Next comes clarification/motivation -
turning a problem into an opportunity. This may include recognition of
stress factors or behaviors that inspire one to seek assistance. Such
external factors, such as diseases, separations, losses, unemployment
or homelessness painfully and decisively change the course of life. "If
you understand these events correctly and act upon them positively,
however difficult or painful they are, they have the potential to
awaken you and turn your whole life into a new direction," points out
the Web site www.visioform.com.
The third step is positive intention, or
affirmation. A client express a desire to change through positive
intent or affirmation. This is always done in the first person, in the
present tense, for the highest and best good. Examples include, "I am
healthy and vital;" "I am successful and stable."
Repeated consistently, affirmations delete bad
programming and replace this negativity with new ideas, insights and
Fourth, transformation of unconscious patterns,
offers a client the opportunity to change that which is unseen so that
the real or actual world changes, for the better, along with it.
Three types of unconscious patterns are addressed:
* Beliefs that are reflected in self-image
* Survival strategies, which helped to
overcome traumatic situations but can hinder life today.
* Energy constrictions in the elements,
meridian and chakra system. This is where the muscle-checking comes
There are approximately 150 Repatternings
available for use by clients.
Self-healing modalities are the fifth
step in the process. Again, there are hundreds of methods available,
including tuning fork vibrations, body movements, eye movements, 'brain
gym' exercises, breathing exercises, sound, light, essential oils and
Lastly is a postcheck of all statements. Here, it
will be determined when and where shifts in frequency wave patterns
have taken place and whether additional self-healing modalities are
needed in another session.
