One of the interesting Spiral Up options in the Resonance Repatterning system is an exercise called Empowering Memories. In this exercise, you close your eyes and think of a time when you felt happy, empowered, successful etc – what ever quality you need in the present. The act of remembering and visualizing a past positive event can retrieve identical feelings in the present and support you in moving forward. I was reminded of this exercise today because it came up as a healing modality in a client session or two and then really hit home with an online article that crossed my desk regarding Fathering. The article pointed to the importance of creating priceless memories with your children.
In my careers of Early Childhood Education and in the current Holographic Coaching work I do, I have always been struck with how a mere pin point in time can create a life long pattern of success or failure, happiness or perpetual sadness, motivation or procrastination. Sometimes one or two sessions can remove the block and allow a gush of new energy to arrive and other times it takes a while to clear the debris that blocks us. However, remembering the empowering moments, the times when we were uplifted, in-love, happy and full of joy -no matter how brief can take us out of many slumps.
Yesterday, would have been my father’s birthday but he died when I was eight. In the little time that I had with him I treasure the fragments of memories – the twinkle in his eye, a smile, or the time he came home in the middle of the winter with a new fangled thing called a hibachi. We cooked hot dogs in the greenhouse and probably spoiled dinner, but I remember the excitement and adventure of trying something new. No doubt the memory in some weird way, contributes to my own adventuresome nature in the kitchen today. It was an uplifting memory.
This is a wonderful time of year to both create empowering memories and remember past ones as energetically these are METAL element energy qualities Our current north american fall season lines up with metal energy of the 5 Element system used in Feng Shui, Acupuncture and Resonance Repatterning. These qualities include VALUE as in valuing ourselves or others, FATHERING (fathers give us a model of high values and ideals on how to live, INNER CONNECTION with ourselves or others, and qualities of TRUTH as in living our truth or naming the truth in a loving way.
When you think about these qualities (value, fathering, inner connection, or truth) what empowering memories come to you? What priceless moments to be remembered can you create in your life today? Take a moment to reflect, get in touch with the memory and replenish your metal element energy
Love and light
