“Birth is the sudden opening of a window, through which you look out upon a stupendous prospect. For what has happened? A miracle. You have exchanged nothing for the possibility of everything.” Willie Dixon
Interestingly while working with clients, I've realised many issues stem from or are as a result of their birth or even pre-birth while still in the womb. The manner in which we were born sets the foundation or tone for the rest of our lives. Birth trauma can have a huge impact on our perceptions and therefore the way in which we view the world: either a friendly or fearful environment.
I've been very encouraged by Internationally acclaimed cellular and developmental biologist, Dr Bruce Lipton who speaks of the value of 'Conscious Parenting'. His work is enormously encouraging in the fields of Energy Psychology, the umbrella which encompasses Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) or 'tapping'. To quote from his DVD entitled 'Nature, Nurture and the Power of Love - the Biology of Conscious Parenting' he has this to say: "The parents' influence in shaping the life of their child are further extended into the watery world of the womb when the prenatal brain begins to acquire environmental experiences. Subsequently, the character and potential of a child can be profoundly nurtured or damaged through birth, bonding and parenting skills. What was learned in the our earliest experiences has a long term impact, for it shapes the potential we express in the unfoldment of our lives." That is a profound statement!
Any form of trauma, unless effectively treated can impact the physical body, emotions and mental well being. Just ask anybody to recall a terrifying event and their body immediately responds as if it is under threat again. Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) otherwise known as ‘tapping’ is a holistic approach addressing 'mind and body' simultaneously.
Here are some of the common birth difficulties which you may have experienced:
- Forceps birth
- Still birth
- Umbilical cord around your neck
- Still birth
- Womb issues i.e. mother being abused during pregnancy
“Birth is the scariest event of most peoples' lives. You have to feel safe enough in your own mind before you can remember your own birth.” Leonard Orr
I can personally confirm that coming face to face with my own birth process was interesting, perhaps just a little daunting ... I was a forceps baby. However, fortunately I had enormous confidence and experience with EFT so naturally trusted the process, feeling safe to explore what had happened to me as a baby.
For as long as I can remember I felt 'under threat' in some way, and for absolutely NO rational or logical reason at all. I felt uneasy, uncomfortable, somewhat out of control, guarded and insecure. I totally shied away from the limelight and although others saw me as confident, inside I was actually fearful. I would do just about anything to avoid any kind of confrontation. I also felt I was under constant scrutiny of others, not necessarily judged or criticised but 'being watched' ... a terrible affliction to live with. However using Matrix reImprinting an advanced version of EFT or 'tapping', I was able to clear this. Today, I am such a different person - I am 'out there' and have this deep inner assertiveness, confidence and definitely feel in control; it's a deep knowing! Thanks to Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) otherwise known as ‘tapping’ my life has transformed and blossomed.
If like me, you've been feeling left out, abandoned, deserted, alone, lost or insecure but cannot quiet put your finger on it yet wish to find a gentle resolution, the next step is to talk to someone. To this end as part of my service I provide a 20 minute initial conversation. I do not charge for this service as it serves a dual purpose: (a) to provide you with some one to talk to and (b) to establish if trauma counselling may be of value. As I'm often consulting during the day I cannot always take phone calls, please kindly complete the form below so I can get back to you and agree on an uninterrupted time for our private conversation.
