EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE (EFT), OR TAPPING
EFT people reference the energetic system of the body, and the meridian points. It is believed that any emotional difficulties result in (or from) an energy block in the system. I do not disagree with this. Yet I also believe EFT allows us to process things in a new way. Instead of being in our heads about things, or over the edge with too much emotion, EFT allows us to process difficult experiences or emotions while staying in the parasympathetic nervous system (rest and digest), instead of going into the sympathetic nervous system (fight, flight, freeze). It allows our brain to stay in the calm, open focused alpha wave pattern, and this often results in the unpleasant emotion moving through while providing new insights along the way. People say things like, “I feel so much more peaceful right now; I never saw it that way before; it’s actually kind of funny when I hear myself say that out loud now.” The process is a deceptively simple tapping on self, or being tapped on by the therapist.

If you ask EFT people they talk about any upset or difficulties being a disturbance in our energy. Matrix people take that a step further and talk about the energy connecting to the quantum field. The quantum field holds many versions of possibility, and our early or other selves (Energetic Consciousness Hologram ECHO) are stuck in those fields holding energies that are not helpful, and that impacts us in our present reality by attracting that same vibration to us over and over again. I have no trouble believing that. However…
I also know from a more proven science-y perspective that our body also holds information over the long term, and that we have core beliefs held in our subconscious that we have no idea are there (or we don’t grasp how incredibly powerful they are as a creative force in our lives). They often times make it so that certain difficulties keep occurring even though we try with all our might to change them. Even if those difficulties are just certain nagging feelings we can’t seem to shake completely. We can have insights all day long, but the subconscious does not care. And the subconscious, it is now believed, is what is piloting us about 95% of our waking life. Many pundits now refer to the body and the subconscious as one.
Matrix reaches us on a subconscious level and allows us to uncover these core beliefs, and begin to shift them in a powerful way. According to the father of Matrix Reimprinting, Karl Dawson, it allows you to be guided back to change your ECHO (that other you) in the quantum field it exists in, so that you can be freed up in the here and now to attract what your heart most desires. Again, I have no trouble believing that, but cannot necessarily substantiate it.
What we can now substantiate is that the hippocampus (the place in our brain responsible for laying down memories and intertwining them with emotions) is actually capable of making new cells. It was thought until recently that the brain cannot make new cells, only new connection patterns. Because we can make adjustments to our memories, we can go back and take the charge out of old experiences or feelings that are stored in that deep part of our brain and subconscious in a powerful “do-over.” We get to identify things that were not wholly visible before and reimprint them in a way that delivers deeper wisdom and greater peace. This all happens while being tapped on and being gently guided. For more information on Matrix Reimprinting click here.
Doing matrix with Julie Visnich was an amazing experience! It enabled me to touch upon a deeper part of me. We sat with the pain of the emotional experience that we were exploring, but we also set a new tone … A new way of being with it. We relived the piece of me that was stuck and came up with a new way of being with it. The me I am today was able to replay the events so that I was able to say and do what I wanted to but couldn’t in the past moment. It was freeing and forgiving at the same time. It allowed me to truly let go and reprogram my mind to see and feel the new programming!!! It is never too late to start again, and that is just what I experienced!
Julie is a wise, intuitive and compassionate therapist and person. She is comforting to talk to and I really feel I am being heard and seen when I’m with her. Julie has a way of helping me to see myself in a different way. Instead of the typical judgment I have about myself and listening to the negative voices that run through my head, she has taught me to be more gentle, kind and interested in all of my thoughts and feelings. This along with the EFT tapping technique has helped me to find my true self and worth. Without Julie I feel I would still be stuck in my same old story, in my same old negative thought patterns and routines. She truly has helped me to open my eyes and be present to the amazing person that I am and to live a happier life in this world. I will be forever grateful for Julie, for her kindness, wisdom and sharing it with me.
