Metamorphosis

There is a complementary health treatment called metamorphosis. It helps mentally, emotionally, phsically and spiritually.

It involves energy work. We have energy circulating in and around our bodies. I compare this energy to the wind. We can’t physically see it, but we can feel it, and see it’s effect. For example, the wind makes tree branches move, kites fly, blows strewn garbage.

Metamorphosis originated back in the 1960’s from Robert St.John, a British naturopath and reflexologist.

Energy underlies all forms of life. Our energy can become blocked, and get “stuck” in paticular patterns. Every cell that makes up our body and mind holds memories of our experinces, not only from childhood, but even from our time in our mother’s womb. What our mother experinced during our gestation deeply affects us.

When an experince affects us strongly, the thoughts, emotions, and beliefs connected to that memory can set up energy patterns in which we become “stuck”. In a sense they keep us stuck in the past. These energy patterns can express themselves in a variety of ways, such as physical or mental illness, emotitional problems, limiting attitudes and beliefs, or repeating patterns of behaviour. Ever wonder why we keep doing the same things over and over again, even though we keep getting the same negative result or response from this behaviour.

Metamorphosis sees all mental, emotional, physical and behavioural problems as symptoms or expressions of energy patterns, which may have developed while in mother’s womb, or from early childhood experinces. We need help to get “unstuck” from these repetitive, negative patterns.

A Metamorphosis session is approx. one hour, and is done with clothes on. By using a light touch to the spinal reflex points of the head, spine, hands and feet,
the metamorphic practitioner acts as a catalyst (something that speeds up a process of change) to a person’s energy, thus helping bring about whatever changes of energy patterns that are needed. This enables the person to naturally shift those behavioural patterns that no longer serve them. The energy that was “stuck” is released, freeing them up from past influences, and allowing them to let go, and move forward. So many of us hang on, as we don’t like change, even though these changes usually are beneficial.

The sessions are non diagnostic. The practitioner is just a facilitator, helping the client’s energy to move along, to “let go” , so metamorphosis is really about self healing. It creates greater consciousness within, has the goal of bringing the client into the “present moment”. Many of us are either thinking about the past (“wish I had of or hadn’t done this or that”), OR we are thinking about the future( “I’m going to do this or that”), instead of enjoying the present moment. This causes unnecessary stress.

Our muscular system reflects the degree of underlying mental tension, and this tension leads to muscular aches and pain. Often people cannot relax or stay relaxed for any length of time, because the tension is mental rather than muscular. People with alot of underlying mental/emotional stress usually find a Metamorphic massage to be surprisingly relaxing, and may drift into a light sleep.

Great appreciation is given to Anne-Marie Arsenault, Metamorphosis course instructor, who lovingly taught much of this information and the technique.

The Power of Essential Oils

Why essential oils are healing oils!   In order for anything to be healing to our bodies, it must be able to get into our cells.  This is the reason why essential oils (therapeutic grade) provide awesome healing.  Their molecules are tiny enough to penetrate our cell walls.  They enter our bloodstream and are capable of passing through the blood-brain barrier.  Essential Oils act like chemical messengers, and communicate with our cells even at the DNA level.  These oils evaporate easily, because of their small molecular size, making themselves available to be inhaled and share their aromas.

When you breathe oil molecules into the back passages of your nose, they go straight to the central part of your brain called the limbic system or emotional center, which manages all of your emotional experiences.  This part of the brain only responds to smell.  This is why certain feelings and memories are aroused when you smell a particular aroma.  For example, the smell of an apple pie may take you back to your grandma’s as a little child or the scent of someone’s perfume may remind you of someone.  Another aroma may unlock a memory you had buried deep, as a traumatic event, which you couldn’t deal with at that time.

Essential oils act differently than many medicines today.  They usually don’t cause side effects.  You know how you might take something for arthritis, and it helps with the pain, abut it may cause stomach problems, so you have to take another medicine now for your stomach problem.  It’s a vicious circle!  With the oils it’s usually the opposite. For example you may be using peppermint oil for your sinuses, and it may also give you extra energy, and help you to be more alert.  These oils can provide healing on all levels: physical, emotional and spiritual.  They are natural and were man’s first medicine.

Did you know that tow of the gifts the three wise men took to Jesus at his birth were the essential oils of frankincense and myrrh?  Frankincense was more precious than gold in those times, and it was used only for royalty.  Myrrh is an antibacterial and excellent for healing wounds.  It is believed that myrrh was used on umbilical cords, and may have helped Mary, Jesus’ mother heal from childbirth.

Your Body’s Energy

You have energy circulating in your body, the same as you have blood circulating.  Good health is dependent on both.  In layman’s terms I compare energy to the wind.  You cannot visually see the winds, but you can see and feel its effects.

Imagine the wind blowing garbage across the street.  The energy circulation in your body pushes toxins (garbage/waste) out.  It does this various ways:  respiration, perspiration, voiding, bowel movements, etc.  When your energy circulation is not functioning properly, health problems arise.

Energy flows through twelve main organs, spending approximately 2 hours in each organ.  It starts in your lungs at 3:00 AM, and finishes in your liver, just prior to starting the process over.

The organs each have a paired organ, and if you have problems with one, most likely you’ll have a problem with the other.  For example, if you have breathing problems, you may notice your breathing is worse between 3:00 and 5:00 AM as this is when the energy is going through the lungs.  If there is an energy blockage there, the circulation is compromised, causing shortness of breath, which may cause you to wake up.  Upon awakening, you breathe deeper or get up, thus helping your breathing.

The large intestines are the lungs paired organ, so often people with breathing difficulties have problems with their bowels, example constipation.  The body is not excreting enough toxins; a build-up of toxins causes an imbalance in the energy circulation.  Also, if you have lung problems, you may have skin problems, as the skin is known as your third lung.

Things which compromise your immune system, also compromise your energy circulation, like stress, lack of sleep, lack of exercise, poor eating habits, dehydration, etc.

Many of today’s alternative health treatments deal with trying to balance your energy circulation to restore your health.
