Matrix Reimprinting is a technique that very gently helps people connect with their past traumas and change the unhelpful beliefs that were formed at the time.
Our belief systems dictate our lives.
Our beliefs shape our thoughts, they drive our emotional reactions and they impact the decisions, choices and actions we take.
Thus, our beliefs create our reality. If we can change our beliefs, we can change how we experience today, and how we shape all our tomorrows
How do we form beliefs?
It’s long been known in the world of psychotherapy; that we are a product of our past learnings and the events we have lived through.
A child will experience a situation or event, then make up their mind about what that must mean about themselves, about others and the world in general.
It’s often parents, teachers, caregivers, older siblings and the media that contribute to this. How they speak to a child, how they treat a child, and how they behave around each other – all this contributes to the lens through which that child starts to see their world.
Your life experiences are showing you what you believe
In general, we’re not consciously aware of the beliefs that are driving our feelings thoughts and behaviours. This is because they live in the subconscious mind, out of our awareness.
It is only our life experiences which can point us to understand what is going on under the surface. How we experience our relationships, confidence level, success and health; these are all indicators of the beliefs systems running in the background.
Many beliefs are helpful and positive, but then we also have limiting beliefs. Some examples of which are:
I’m not good enough
I have to struggle alone
I need to prove myself
I have to please people
These limiting beliefs can create a whole host of problems because they lead us to make choices that are not in our best interest.
Like David, for example whose belief that he needed to keep proving himself. drove him to burnout in his high-powered job
We re-create our beliefs
As we go through life, we quite often, subconsciously, seek out familiar situations and behave in certain ways, because well, that’s just how we see life. This then reinforces those beliefs and so it goes on in a never-ending cycle of painful experiences and struggle through life. David’s drive to overwork, and the ensuing burnout, led him to feel like a failure and thus simply reinforced the belief that he must prove himself.
What’s needed then is a way to uncover the beliefs that are not working for us, find ways to gently let them go and replace them with new helpful beliefs - such as “I am good enough as I am”, “I am worthy”, Success comes easily to me”, “I love myself”
One of the best ways to achieve this is through Matrix Reimprinting
