Compassion gives us the courage and wisdom to descend into our suffering– Prof Paul Gilbert OBE
Grief and Loss
EFT and Matrix Reimprinting has been life changing, not just in my practice but also in my personal healing and growth. Even, during the training, I was able to put some space between myself and a traumatic memory.
Since losing my Mum in December 2020, EFT and Matrix Reimprinting has been a huge part of my healing.
My training to become an EFT and Matrix Reimprinting actually only started 6 months after I lost Mum and I am certain that it was divine timing.
During the training, we were asked to think of a memory to work with later that day and an image of when I arrived to spend Mum’s last couple of days with her came to mind. The moment was a huge shock to me as I wasn’t expecting such a drastic change. During the morning before our practice session, I could barely hold back the tears as this memory overwhelmed me. During the exercise time, I worked on it with a colleague using the EFT movie technique. At the beginning the tears flowed as I worked through the energy of the emotions and beliefs I had attached to this memory. Less than 30 minutes later the emotional charge dissipated and I was left in awe of this powerful therapy.
Since this initial experience, I have been able to connect with the spirit of my Mum in the Matrix and have had some emotional yet hugely healing moments with her. Each time I am given a little more peace and acceptance.
I feel so grateful that I found these therapies when I did but mostly to the amazing practitioners that held space and allowed me to bring light to some of my darkest moments.
In all honesty, I am still on my healing path, the loss of a loved one is a complex journey which I continue to work on. Even during the writing of this, I have had a few tears and that’s ok. I have learned to create space for myself and to allow all emotions as part of the process.
In fact, I feel that these emotions are a sign of our connection and I just received the most perfect reminder of this. As I was writing this, I was wondering if it was the right thing to share as it feels very personal and then my fairy lights that haven’t worked in ages turned on, just for a moment, but long enough for me to see. I am certain that it was Mum letting me know she’s with me and it’s ok.
This is just one aspect of my healing, I am a work in progress as each one of us is, and this is what makes us human. There are always areas of our lives we can work on. Alongside our own limiting beliefs, we live within systems that can be triggering and present challenges. However, it is continuing to work through these blocks using therapies such as EFT and Matrix Reimprinting that provide me with the continual growth and self-awareness that support me in my practice and my life.
