Gifts and Patterns

Here’s an integrative way of taking stock of a year.

It’s based on a craniosacral concept which I use as a jumping off point for a Gifts and Patterns exploration with VIP Day clients.

The concept is called The Significance Detector and cranial therapists know that when this pause in the cranial rhythm occurs spontaneously — something of consequence to the client has “shown itself.”

Often during a deep session, there will be key moments or elements to the significant piece and an advanced therapist will put “a drag” on the bodily tissues involved so as not to “miss” a key moment whizzing by.

OK so how can this information be useful to you right now?gifts and patterns

Remember that your body is a finely tuned recorder.

Getting attuned to the frequencies your body vibrates to and holds is healing and can remove blocks to your manifestation efforts.

You can begin this process by slowing down your body awareness. Try the Belly and Heart exercise (I teach this in a free teleclass quarterly), or circular breathing, or any of the grounding exercises in my book, The Alchemy of Self Healing.

Then grab a pen and paper and jot down a Cliff’s Notes list of highlights and lowlights of your past year.

Don’t worry if you recall events out of order…the order you recall feelings, events and people must be honored.

Once you have your list, read each entry out loud s-l-o-w-l-y (as a way to put a “drag” on your thoughts so your body can, in effect, sync its truth or knowingness of each entry with your brain’s awareness or judgement.

As you may well know if you’ve been following me awhile, your body’s truth does not always sync with what your brain thinks, right?

Then look over your list and see which entries caused similar bodily reactions. Sometimes 2 seemingly unrelated events can uncover a pattern that needs attention.

For example, let’s say I’ve done my Cliff’s Notes list. In March I played fast and loose with my health while traveling, got sick and missed an interview.

I check with my body to see WHERE that lives inside me. I do this s-l-o-w-l-y.

Say my body flashes me a sinking feeling of dark, claustrophobic dread in my throat. I’d list that in my Cliff’s notes next to that March event.

Next, I’d be on the lookout for another event on my list that year where my throat was involved—maybe constricted differently but if I find a few events where my throat held the “story” trapped somehow, that might well indicate a pattern to work with.

Try your hand at Cliff’s Notes then let me know the patterns you noticed.

The gifts are in the noticing.
