Combining EFT, Matrix Reimprinting, metaphors, colours, parts, timelines

I have just had one of the most beautiful private sessions with Jeanne. I am amazed by how much she packed into the session, how many modalities and techniques she weaved and danced into it, how she met me where I was, and then led me to all sorts of new places! Combining EFT, Matrix Reimprinting, metaphors, colours, parts, timelines and who knows what else into one session, without blinking an eye takes an expert – and that’s exactly what she did. It was uncanny how many connections she helped me make, how many patterns she helped me see, and how much of the recent personal work I’ve been doing over the last few months she was able to pull together. This single experience is worth a lot more than whatever she charges. Bennie Naude international trainer, facilitator and EFT/matrix...

Absolutely Exhilarating

To be having these sessions with you in my mid-fifties has been absolutely exhilarating. It is a rare gift, to be given a space, with someone so intuitive and of such exceptional emotional insight and empathy, to explore the cavernous and inaccessible parts of my psyche that I have neither the tools nor the courage to navigate through myself. Each session, in a unique way, takes me to long avoided territory (or, mostly, areas of myself of which I am unaware), and opens doors for light to enter. Sometimes the result is gently joyous and affirming; and sometimes, it’s a Pandora’s box that has me doing battle with awkward and painful issues. You have the wonderful ability to judge the pace at which we can take things. Your love and freedom from all judgement make it possible – and such a relief! – to explore areas of my being and of my life that I could not trust anyone else with. You surprise me, always, with the accuracy and depth of your understanding. I find that something happens, almost effortlessly, as you guide me through territory that is strange and yet familiar. And afterwards, without thinking about it, I realise that some aspect of me has changed, at a profound level. With huge gratitude, and with love....

Experience the deep and profound sense of release (and relief)

“I began seeing Jeanne for regular massages in about 2000. A massage was my way of treating and pampering myself and I remember clearly the sense of anticipation I’d feel driving to see her in her little house in Muizenberg. Kind of like all the cells in my body were in a state of eager anticipation. My massages were delicious and I was happy. And then the relationship I was in broke down irrevocably and I was bereft, alone and terribly sad. I found myself driving the road to Jeanne’s massage table more frequently to experience the deep and profound sense of release (and relief) I found in her beautiful, calm and healing presence. It was a space in which I could be entirely myself. A space in which I could allow my carefully constructed “exterior” persona to be put aside and in which I could reveal, without fear, the raw, vulnerable hurting part of me. I have never been particularly good at dealing with my own emotions and the relief of having found a person I could trust so completely was profound. Looking back at this two or three year period of my life now, I know with certainty that Jeanne saved my life. She saved me from becoming hard. She saved me from becoming bitter and locked into my own grief and sadness and anger. And when I think of the meaning of the word “healing” this is what she offered me. In the gentlest, kindest and most loving way. I continue to see Jeanne for a massage whenever I possibly can – it is still one...

I feel a sense of release and freedom

I have just completed a lovely calming and embracing session with Jeanne who deftly allowed my conscious and subconscious inner corps to explore, and acquaint myself with different facets of deeply held long term grief that I have had within me for many decades. I feel a sense of release and freedom. A huge thank you....

Neutralise disturbances

‘EFT appears to balance and neutralise these disturbances in the meridian system. The premise of EFT is that physical and emotional issues are caused by a disruption in our body’s energy system. There is a connection between our conscious and subconscious thoughts and blockages in our body. While focusing on the issue or problem and simultaneously tapping through a sequence of acupressure points, we release the blockage and get physical or emotional relief. ‘ (Louise Hay: EFT-and-louise-hays-new-thought-patterns) Our body and mind and emotions are intricately linked. Our emotions, thoughts and beliefs all have energy or vibrations attached to them. In fact, our emotions and our thoughts are literally energy, or “energy in motion”. “The cause of all negative emotions is a disruption in the body’s energy system”. (Gary Craig, the founder of...

Facing LIFE head-on with a lot of heart

Sometimes it seems that life really throws us a ball just to see if we’re still alive, focused, ‘on it’, engaged….or just for the fun of it. It’s one of the Truths – like if we’re alive, one day we won’t be in this body and the other “truth” is that everything changes. And if you’re anything like me – and being human we have a lot in common – I tend to try duck and dive these curve balls to avoid pain, conflict and stuff that’s hard. Why? Because it’s uncomfortable. And it’s hard. And sometimes it really hurts. We all have different ways of dealing with this – alcohol – I have been known to reach for the glass of wine at the end of a long day. Cigarettes. Gym. Sex. Belonging to a group – woman’s group, Bible club, meditation….. any thing that will help us to get around what we’re being dealt by just being alive. Some of these attempts definitely have more benefits than others. The only part is that even in that statement there’s a judgement. This is good or this is bad. In that judgement we make decisions as to how we are going to manage things and try to control it so we can feel better. That seems to be our driving force – to feel better. And even that can get weird. I’ve seen in my practice, and with myself when I’m honest, there is a huge attraction to being a victim/ martyr. There’s a part of the brain that convinces us that this is the best way to be....

Coming home after a retreat or workshop – what now?

It’s when we come home from a retreat or a workshop that the ‘REAL’ work starts. I love this post by Dr Joe Dispenza Coming Home: Tips for Integrating Your New Personality Into Your Old Personal Reality Coming Home: Tips for Integrating Your New Personality Into Your Old Personal Reality So many people tell me that the hardest part of going to an event is leaving it. The reason why is because when you return to your everyday life, that’s when the real work begins… the work being the process of integrating your new personality into your old past-present personal reality. With that said, here are some practical tips on how to do just that—although, these tips apply to any time when you want to make real, lasting changes in your life. Most importantly, do the work and do it every day. Don’t make excuses to not do the work. If you keep reminding yourself of who you want to be, while at the same time staying conscious of who you no longer want to be, eventually your personal reality will transform to match your new personality. Never stop learning. Fill your brain with knowledge and review the information you’ve learned regularly so you can continue to assign meaning as to what you’re doing and why. View your life as an initiation/test. This way you won’t be a victim to any of your life’s circumstances. When you view life as an initiation, you are challenged to bring a greater level of mind to the obstacles in your life. Remember—you can’t overcome a challenge with the same level of mind that created...

The beautiful healing power of being heard

Yesterday I took part in a profound healing journey. It was a closed group call of a group of women, facilitated by Bennie Naude. Some women I know, others only through skype and sessions we have shared over the ethers. The purpose was to be witnessed as we shared a story. It was an interesting experience as my original intention was purely to hold space and witness other’s stories. Yet, the night before I had such a vivid dream about something that happened more than 20 years ago and was so triggered by events of the morning that I jumped in and shared my story. What I experienced was so beautiful. A group that held me as I talked. At no point did anyone try to fix it, make me feel better, help me see a different perspective or try to change the way I felt. I felt heard I felt loved I felt acknowledged and accepted. The group presence was powerful enough for the healing to start taking place. A story that I had not told anyone for over 20 years was heard and I felt a weight drop from my belly. Yes, I felt raw. Also, vulnerable and exposed. That wasn’t comfortable. But I also trusted this group to keep the contract we agreed to at the beginning of the session. And then I had the opportunity and privilege to listen to others. It was an amazing morning. In a group presence there is a value of sharing and being heard. And in a group there is an opportunity for deep healing to happen. Being witnessed and witnessing...

Setting goals and positive visualisations

“I engaged Jeanne as my fertility coach prior to embarking on my IVF journey. As I’m based in Cape Town, we conducted our sessions via Skype. I was initially skeptical as to how well that would work, but needn’t have worried, as Jeanne’s professional, warm and incisive coaching style bridged the technology gap completely, and it felt like we were in the same room. I am so thankful for the work we did together, as it empowered me during a stressful and potentially disempowering time where things are being done ‘to’ you. Through connecting with my emotions, setting goals, and positive visualisations, I was able to approach the process calmly and positively, and to connect with my babies in utero. Most importantly, I felt really supported and nurtured by Jeanne throughout. I am now the proud mother of beautiful, healthy twins!”...

The intricacies of a Mother’s Journey – Post natal depression and healing

I would like to share this very moving story with you. It was so poignant how this beautiful woman found links from her past that seemed so totally unrelated and yet had created filters that clouded her ability to bond with her son. A client suffered from postnatal depression after the birth of her 3rd child. She often experienced a sense of overwhelm and of feeling unsupported. She came to see me when her children older and yet she still experienced a sense of guilt and disconnect when she thinks about that time. Working with Matrix Birth re-imprinting I asked her to find a time that she remembered feeling very alone and disconnected to her baby.She remembers a night where her baby would not sleep and she felt so alone and angry with him. We tapped on her frustration, aloneness and feeling unsupported. With her baby asleep, we reprogrammed the belief to feeling supported and loving her baby. This memory triggered a previous memory of shock when she was told she was having a baby boy. The echo felt trapped, angry and guilty.  We allowed her to vent these feelings without judgement and release her fears. She replaced her fear with– having a baby is sacred. Then she remembered an event which she says put a lot of things onto perspective – her first pregnancy was traumatic in the relationship with an emotionally abusive partner. He would not claim the child as his if it was not a boy. She remembered her fear of her baby being a boy and being linked to this man and the fear of if it...
