Matrix Reimprinting is a powerful therapy which combines EFT with visualisation techniques to process and release the chronic effects of past trauma and stress in the subconscious mind. It is effective and gentle and in contrast to other therapies doesn’t require the client to relive the actual past traumatic event therefore greatly lessening the risk of re-traumatisation. It works by acknowledging and releasing the emotional charge from the event, identifying the core belief made at that moment (many core beliefs are made before the age of seven), and then creating new positive images, outcomes and beliefs in relation to the original event and reimprinting these in the mind and body. This isn’t about denying what actually happened but instead evolving the unconscious information/belief that for example, is telling us the world isn’t safe. The effect is often a profound transformation in physical and emotional wellbeing, freedom from the traumatic memory, and a cognitive shift in insight, belief and perception through the deep reframing of the event.
Matrix Reimprinting was developed by EFT Master, Karl Dawson, in 2006, and takes into account scientific developments in the fields of cell biology (in particular, the work of Bruce Lipton who correlates the connection between beliefs and biology), trauma psychology, neurodevelopment and quantum physics. The term ‘matrix’ comes from quantum physics and refers to the understanding that the universe and everything in it (including our bodies, emotions, thoughts, memories) are forms of energy connected in fields of information.
As with EFT, Matrix Reimprinting is effective for trauma, PTSD, anxiety, anger, depression, fears, phobias, addictions, and physical conditions (e.g. menstrual issues and pain, fatigue, insomnia). It is also very helpful in supporting clients towards their wellbeing and other issues such as fertility, and gentle birth.
A note about visualisation techniques: You don’t have to be a highly visual person to benefit from this. The word ‘visual’ is a little misleading as visualisation involves all the senses, not just internal ‘seeing,’ and the whole person, not just the mind. It is enough to simply have ‘a vague sense of something.’
