What is Matrix Reimprinting?
Matrix Reimprinting is a powerful and gentle Meridian Tapping Therapy which evolved from EFT. It was created by Karl Dawson, whom I trained with, in 2006. It has proven to be effective in healing emotional and physical issues, especially releasing the effects of past trauma and stress from the subconscious mind. While EFT removes the emotional intensity from a memory or a past event, when we use Matrix Reimprinting, we are able to go into a past memory and transforming it by changing the meaning and the negative belief that we have attached to it and that has affected us throughout our lives. In this way, by resolving the past trauma, we are able to attract new and more resourceful experiences into our lives.
What can you expect during a session?
Before our first session, I will be sending you a form where I’m going to ask you to write down the issues that you’d like work on and resolve, how they impact on your life and what your preferred outcome would be. This would give you the opportunity to concentrate on what you’d like to resolve in your life and make our sessions more focused. In order to be able to use Matrix Reimprinting in a session, you need to be familiar with the EFT process. If you have never done EFT before, we will start by doing EFT to familiarise yourself with the process, it’s very easy. I will then ask you a few questions on what you’d like to work during our session together and once you feel comfortable we will start tapping. I will be there by your side to guide you along the way. What happens naturally is that while working together using EFT, memories that are attached to a strong emotion will emerge, and we can then go into the past memory and resolve the trauma and the negative belief or emotion attached to it.
What does the process look like?
Once you have identified a past memory that you want to work with, I will be gently and slowly guiding you through the process. You will be able to acknowledge and release the emotions associated to the trauma, identifying the negative belief that you created or strengthened in that circumstance, and then transform the picture of the memory into a positive one by bringing in new resources, creating a new outcome, transforming the belief that was formed originally and then we will reimprint the new memory in your body and mind. The result of it has been described my clients as “mind-blowing” because it can really result into a cognitive shift and a profound transformative experience which then has direct beneficial effect on your emotional and physical well-being. By freeing yourself from the traumatic memory, you will be able to re-frame the event and change your perception of it, which will have a ripple effect on your present and future as well.
Important: unlike other therapies where the client is asked to relive the trauma, with EFT and Matrix Reimpriting we avoid that by putting in place strategies that allow the client to remain dissociated throughout the work so that the risk of re-traumatisation is completely removed.
