Sleep Problems

I have many examples of people with sleep problems who were successful with Meta but one woman stands out. She had been diagnosed with insomnia about a year before she made a Meta appointment, having difficulty getting to sleep and waking up many times at night. She had given up coffee, started yoga, tried many remedies and had finally resorted to prescribed sleeping tablets months before she heard of Metamorphosis from a friend.

When all failed and in desperation, she arrived for her introduction to Meta informing me of her chronic sleep deprivation. Following her anxious and restless nights she suffered daytime fatigue, irritability with her family, inability to work and spent undue time worrying about sleeping. 

At the first treatment the woman was sceptical and was relieved to know that Metamorphosis did not require belief. She was responsive to the treatment and willing to learn the Hand Symbols. I recommended she do them often especially in bed. She returned the following week with more enthusiasm informing me that her sleep remained poor but was more relaxed in bed doing her Hand Symbols and had more daytime energy. Following a few more treatments, she was reducing her sleeping tablets and was open to learn how to do the treatment for herself. She introduced Meta to her family who were interested because she had become less irritable, - the positive ripple effect of Metamorphosis.

As time passed the chat during her treatments changed from worrying about sleep to a return to hobbies and part time work. As we had not discussed her sleep for some time, one day I asked her, how is your sleep?….. she hesitated with a puzzled expression, “oh Margaret, I have forgotten I could not sleep. Wow - not only does the problem disappear with Meta but the memory of the problem disappears”

When the block is erased the symptoms and their memory cease to exist.

It is important to remember that Metamorphosis is a way of life that allows the individual to take responsibility for the sleep disturbance (block). The Hand Symbols are a positive habit to do any time of the day or night and before rising in the morning. You give yourself the opportunity to drift into sleep in the moment, not allowing stress or anxiety (conscious or unconscious) to disturb your night, ensuring you have a restful sleep to wake up with a positive attitude. 


Chronic Back Pain. (Manifestation of a block)

A woman I treated regularly about 7 years ago attended my practice recently. She had continued to practise Metamorphosis but due to considerable challenges in her life at present, she decided to seek the support of a catalyst again.

We both recalled the success she created with Meta in the past, when we discussed the time we first met. The woman suffered chronic back pain and was scheduled to undergo back surgery in the hospital where she worked. She was very resistant to surgery but as she had suffered constant pain and missed so much work time, she decided to go ahead with it. She was also suffering from the side effects of analgesic medication.

Her open mind and enthusiasm to self heal was ideal for Metamorphosis success! On the months leading up to her surgery date she noticed she needed less pain relief as her back pain eased. Her work attendance improved and she was enjoying a better quality of life. 

The day before her surgery she arrived for a Meta treatment prior to her hospital admission. She was very hesitant about undergoing surgery due to her progress. However, she had doubts about maintaining her balance *(Afference and Efference) and that if her back problem returned, the hospital might not be sympathetic if she was absent from work again.  As she left me that day, I encouraged her to do her Hand Symbols to enable her to be creative with her decision. 

Later on that evening I got a telephone call from the woman in an delighted state. She informed me that following her admission to hospital she was sitting up in bed, calm and relaxed doing her Hand Symbols, when her surgeon peeped in the door of her room and observed her serenity. He enquired about her back pain and mobility and following a check up he discharged her. 

The woman’s attitude had changed and her Consultant advised her to keep up whatever she was doing. He often met her in the hospital corridors during her working day, commenting on how well she was doing. Her back remains symptom free to this day, so much so, that she had forgotten she had a back problem. Recalling her past success with Metamorphosis gave her the impetus to get on with morphing her latest challenge.

Remember, Meta is a creative way of life that in practice, identifies and erases the block or the source of the symptom. A symptom is a manifestation of a block/Unconscious stress. Surgery is to do with the symptom, Metamorphosis is to do with the source.

Abuse And Disturbed Memory

Abuse whether it is verbal, physical or sexual, creates a disturbing memory in the lives of those who suffer it, inhibiting their creativity in life.

In my experience of being a catalyst for abused people over the years, I have seen many people erase the memory of their disturbed past. 

Recently, a woman attending my practice encouraged me to write this blog about her sexually abused childhood and the creative effect of Metamorphosis. “People should be aware she said, that Meta is not about analysis and advice. I did all that over the years in therapy, trying to control my thoughts and discipline my mind. Nothing I tried created in me the independence and authority I now have with Meta. I no longer wake up in the middle of the night in a cold sweat with nightmares and I am overcoming anxiety and depression. I lost all innocence and trust as a small child, but with my Meta I do not have to suffer its effects.  Margaret…. I am free, I no longer identify with the memory of my disturbed past.”

Robert St john used to say, “the disturbed memories of life are minor to the disturbances of the gestation period, the trouble in gestation is minor to the disturbance registered at conception but, the unconscious negative pre-conception stress (beginning of time) is major source of trouble (block) in our lives.” It is the source of repeated disturbed patterns through time.

The woman is now in her early 40’s, beginning to live a life of freedom from the effect of her childhood and life in general. Metamorphosis gave the woman the opportunity to address the block or true source of her troubles. She no longer identifies with the pattern and is more at ease and creative. She hopes her story will help others to create permanent freedom from repeated disturbed patterns with Meta.


Bullying / Inner Authority

A young boy of six years was having fun playing football with his friends in front of his house. An older ten year old boy who had previously verbally upset him, arrived and started to intimidate him. The young boy ran in to his home and when his parents noticed he was upset, enquired about his problem. His dad was annoyed that an older boy had interrupted his play and mentioned to his son that he would go out and speak to him. The boy replied, “no dad that will make things worse”, then he turned to his mother saying, “mum I need a Meta treatment”.

The mother immediately left the lunch preparation, sitting down to treat her son, who requested a foot treatment. Following the treatment the boy said, “thanks mum, when is lunch ready”? then she heard the hall door close behind him. The parents went to the front window to observe their son continue to play happily with his friends. They saw that the older boy looked puzzled that the little lad had returned to play following his verbal attack. That was the end of the problem, resolved by the six year old child who had a knowing that Meta would enable him release his anxiety.  

That young boy had an inner intelligence to resolve the conflict himself, which is what Metamorphosis is all about. When we take responsibility with Meta for our own imbalance, whether it is, too much sensitivity in the Afferently oriented or, too much force in the Efferently orientated, the imbalance can be resolved fundamentally and therefore permanently. The young boy is now a young man, who has a strong inner authority.

Metamorphosis is a creative way of life for parents and children. Problems can be resolved by the child with the parent as his catalyst.
