Matrix reimprinting is an Energy Psychology technique created by EFT master Karl Dawson.
Using the Tapping Meridian techniques of EFT we are able to connect with past memories and transform them within our energy field, thereby releasing past trauma and pain. This has a direct impact on our present health and wellbeing.
Carolyn Myss says – ‘Our biography becomes our biology’ – in other words we are what we believe and what we have experienced creates what we believe. By changing and releasing the negative way we relate to our past experiences and our beliefs that were created due to those experiences, we can have a direct positive impact to how we function now and the way we act, live and love in the present.
Matrix Reimprinting becomes a powerful tool to actively change our beliefs that were set up in our past, often before we were even consciously choosing them, ie, before the age of 7. Traditional EFT is a powerful means to release what has happened to us in the past. Using the Matrix Reimprinting Technique takes this a step further. You are able to interact with yourself at the time of the event, release the emotions and consciously change the memory and belief to a more positive one.
When we have a trauma or painful memory, parts of us freeze in our energetic field and are unable to process the event. The memories and parts of us that are trapped in the past and held in the field are called ECHOs (Energy Consciousness Holograms).
By working with these ECHO’s we resolve the memories which contributed to the core issues, and we have an opportunity to instil new supporting beliefs and experiences. This directly impacts our current and present beliefs about ourselves and the world.
The principles of Matrix Reimprinting:
It is based upon the understanding that we are all connected by a unified Energy Field – generally referred to as the ‘Field’ or the ‘Matrix’. This energy field was originally referred to as the ‘Matrix’ by Max Planck in 1944. In more recent years Lynne McTaggart has referred to it simply as ‘The Field,’ Greg Braden has talked of the ‘Divine Matrix,’ whilst Rupert Sheldrake has talked of ‘Morphic Fields.’
The Basic principles are:
- We are all made up of energy that is vibrating so fast that we appear as solid matter
- We are all linked through this energy – connected through a web known as the Matrix
- We send our thoughts as energy into the Matrix and these thoughts are attracted back to us as life experiences.
- We can change how we experience life by changing the pictures in the matrix
How does Matrix Reimprinting differ from EFT?
Having evolved from EFT, it contains some important differences. For example, in conventional EFT tapping on meridian end points is used to take the emotional intensity out of a past memory. What you are left with is to be able to recall your most traumatic and stressful life memories without any emotional disruption or stress, which is obviously extremely useful, as negative past memories keep the body in a state of stress and can contribute to disease. However, with Matrix Reimprinting the memory is actually transformed. You can go into any past memory, say and do what you wished you’d said and done, bring in new resources, and create and transform the picture you have of that memory.
In Matrix Reimprinting we see these past negative memories as being held as pictures or holograms in your body-field. Until you transform them you keep tuning into them on a subconscious level and they affect your health, your wellbeing and your point of attraction. Changing the pictures creates both physical and emotional healing, and enables you to attract more positive experiences into your life. And by tapping on the meridians of the body at the same time, the process is accelerated.
It is important to recognize that this process is very different from denying what happened. From a quantum physics point of view we have any number of possible pasts or futures, and it is simply tuning us into one that is more resourceful, whilst releasing the stress and trauma that we hold in our body-mind and body-field, due to traumatic life events.
Matrix Reimprinting is very gentle and allows you to release a whole range of traumatic experiences without being re-traumatised.
A further benefit of the Matrix Reimprinting technique is that it utilises the Law of Attraction. When we have unresolved traumatic experiences we hold them in our energy field. Our subconscious is constantly trying to process these unresolved events and so we create filters through which we ‘see’ the world. In this way we seem to constantly attract similar or like experiences.
With this technique once we resolve the trauma; we change the point of attraction to a more positive memory. We change our filters. And so we are able to begin to draw more fulfilling and life sustaining experiences. This gives us the possibility to create new and supportive ‘memories’ in our field.
Releasing the Freeze response with EFT/Matrix Reimprinting.
When we experience a sudden, unexpected, traumatic, life threatening event our body/mind has a variety of responses – flight, fight, or freeze. These natural responses are our body’s survival techniques to dealing with trauma or a life threatening event. In the wild, animals have the natural ability to discharge the effects of this Freeze response by physically shaking, As a ‘civilized’ race we have lost this important action response. The shock is held in the freeze response of our bodies and stored in the Matrix. Now with EFT and specifically MR, we have tools to release the shock effect and allow the body and mind to process the event safely without re-traumatisation.
Matrix Birth Reimprinting
Our birth story has an enormous impact on how we see the world. These filters are often set up during our development in the womb and are powerful subconscious programmes that we have taken on before we even were born. Using MBR (Matrix Birth Reimprinting) we have access to releasing any shock, trauma or birth belief that was set up and that may be defining how we perceive ourselves and the world in the present.
MBR is a powerful tool for anyone who would like to reprogram their birth story with a conscious powerful and loving belief system – to change the filters of how they see themselves and their world. It is an opportunity to release any trauma that may be have been experienced by the mother and to distinguish between what was hers and what is ours. As a baby growing in the womb we have no way of distancing between what the mother experiences and what we take on as ours. Now we have the chance to go back and re-align that program of belief patterns.
MBR is also a beautiful and gentle way of releasing any birth trauma – both of our own or having given birth. We are able to go to the ECHO at the moment before birth and support that baby and the parents into a powerful and loving birth experience. This can impact a mother that has experienced a traumatic birth experience and is anxious about having another baby. It is also a powerful technique to create a beautiful and powerful birth experience in the future.
