Big Traumas and Small Traumas
Traumatic experiences happen to all of us in some form or another. This can be “Big Traumas” such as experiences in war and conflict, or a physical attack, child abuse, or a car accident.
Many of us can also have “Small Traumas” and particularly in childhood. These smaller traumas can be as simple as a parent telling us off, or being left out of a group at school, or any number of events that create an emotional impact on us.
The Blueprint of Your Memories
Trauma’s, whether big or small, have a lasting impact because when a traumatic experience happens it has strong emotions attached to it. This leads us to make decisions, about ourselves, others and about how the world works. These decisions become beliefs deeply ingrained in the subconscious mind.
Then, as we go through life, we think, feel, and make decisions and choices based on those beliefs.
These become our limiting beliefs
Some examples of these are:
I’m not good enough
I can’t trust people
he world is not a safe place
I must keep being strong
I have to keep pleasing people
People let me down
I’m not loveable
…and many more.
This means that the traumatic experiences you’ve had, sometimes in your adult past, and sometimes long ago as a child, may well be having an effect on your life today.
How Matrix Reimprinting Works
Matrix Reimprinting works by your therapist taking you into a semi-meditative state so that you can step back in time, and work with your younger, former, self to repair the problem at its very root.
Using specific methods, your therapist will help you to de-traumatise your former self and review the unhelpful belief that was formed at the time. This is not to change a memory, but rather to disengage the emotional attachments to that memory so that it no longer holds such intense meaning to you.
Alongside this, Matrix Reimprinting enables you to consider the experience from a new perspective and make a cognitive shift to think about it in a more helpful and logical way.
Living a New Life
One of the great appeals of Matrix Reimprinting is that it enables you to create new and healthy beliefs such as “I am good enough” and “I am lovable” and “It wasn’t my fault”. This means you can start creating new happier and healthier experiences – thus a completely new life
In my experience I’ve found that Matrix Reimprinting works particularly well when used in conjunction with other therapies such as Talk Therapy because every person is unique in their own way – so I tailor Matrix Reimprinting to your own particular needs in the session.
