When we experience a trauma - whether 'Big T' traumas such as a car accident, death of a loved one, or sexual abuse; or 'small t' traumas such as being bullied, or getting separated from Mummy at the shops - a part of us splits off and goes into the matrix. These dissociated parts are called Energy Consciousness Holograms, or ECHOs, in Matrix Reimprinting. They are like holographic 'pictures', holding the sensory aspects of the event, as well as the feelings and thoughts that we experienced, and the beliefs that we formed, as a consequence.
While ever these pictures remain in our field, we continually tune into them on an unconscious level, and they affect our health, happiness, and the people and circumstances we attract into our lives. If you keep finding yourself in situations you don't want to be in, experiencing feelings you don't want to have, it's time to examine the pictures you have unconsciously stored in your matrix!
During a Matrix Reimprinting session, you step back into a memory of a past event that resonates with a problem you're experiencing now. You interact with the ECHO that formed as a consequence of this event, and has been trapped in the Matrix ever since. You work directly on your ECHO, tapping on him or her in your imagination, and, under the ECHO's direction, transforming the memory in ways that bring healing and resolution to the ECHO. The ECHO can say and do what you wished you’d said and done, bring in new resources, replace dysfunctional beliefs formed at the time of the trauma with ones that promote health and happiness; and create a new picture of the memory that can be 'uploaded' into the matrix to muscle out the old one that's been causing so much distress.
That's exactly what Ruth* decided to do, to heal her relationship with her adult daughter, Amanda*. While Ruth enjoyed a good relationship with her other daughter, there had always been strain, and frequently conflict, between Ruth and Amanda. No matter how hard Ruth tried, she just couldn't get close to Amanda. To commence our Matrix Reimprinting work, we chose a scene that Ruth could vividly recall in her imagination: herself, heavily pregnant (in fact, several weeks overdue) with Amanda, all by herself in a city far from her home, feeling totally alone, and terribly oppressed by her precarious financial situation.
Ruth tapped on her ECHO's loneliness and strain, then brought into the picture the resouces her ECHO needed to feel safe and secure: money to buy food, new clothes for her children, a car, and supportive friends. The lesson Ruth's ECHO had learned about life during this difficult period was that life was full of problems, and there were never enough material resources to feel safe. These were, of course, the feelings that had dogged Ruth all her life, although she now owned her own home and had experienced much happiness in life. Ruth was able to recount to her ECHO how successful she had been at becoming financially secure, and how resourceful she had been in solving problems she had encountered throughout her life. She felt a dramatic shift in her ECHO's beliefs about life.
After uploading the 'new, improved' version of Ruth's picture into the matrix, we discussed what it must have been like for Ruth's baby, who was born severely postmature and with persistent projectile vomiting. Although Ruth had tried to understand Amanda before, she had never been able to connect with her experience at this level. But having given compassion to her own ECHO, and brought about her healing, she was now able to feel deep compassion for Amanda.
That night, I received an email from Ruth:
