Going Beyond the symptoms with Metamorphosis
Through the practice of Metamorphosis we can 'morph' or become free of unconscious disturbances or 'blocks'. The blocks can manifest in mental, physical, emotional and behavioural symptoms e.g. anxiety, depression, hypertension, insomnia, migraine, backache, eating disorders, addictions etc.
Meta is not about the symptom, but the block or imbalance which is the source of the symptom. The balance of Afference and Efference is the healing factor (refer to the Principle of Metamorphosis). It is about creating the balance, allowing the mind and body to heal naturally and spontaneously. If we keep it up as a way of life, we can be permanently free of the symptoms and their memory.
In my experience all symptoms can be successfully addressed with Metamorphosis, if the person is open to the idea of self healing. The practitioner's role is to be a catalyst, provide support and be an educator of the philosophy. Those who understand the principles of Meta tend to use it more in their every day lives, becoming free of their symptoms which inhibit their creativity.
The time factor changes, from being stuck in the past, or anxious about the future to 'living in the present moment' with a positive attitude. Support is vital in these chaotic times and as we 'morph' the blocks, we become less identified with the chaos and more identified with creation.
The aim of Metamorphosis is to create an inner authority and an independent mind, to be free of medication, manipulation and the control of others. The Meta practitioner pays attention with perception in treatment, encouraging the practice of the Hand Symbols.
True altruism is the result of finding a balance of Afference and Efference, rather than something one tries to obtain.
Metamorphosis is a philosophy for these challenging times.
