Eala  (this 1 st class) is  for those of you interesting in awakening and connecting and seeing what you are holding in your chakras that is ready to be transformed –permanently.

Breakthrough Practices for Resolving your Problems Once and For All

2009 IPPY Award-winning MEMORY IN OUR BONES by H. Elizabeth Burke, MA

Memory is no longer found just in the brain. It actually lives in our bones. Larry Dossey, MD, one of the world’s foremost authorities on the synergy of physical health and spiritual awareness, says, “ Burke shows that consciousness is not limited or confined to our brains, or to the here and now, but is unlimited. We cannot be truly healthy unless this realization becomes real for each of us.”

Such awareness flies in the face of the fact that most people cope with life’s upsets by trying not to think about them, the “old out of sight, out of mind” technique. Problem solved, right? Not so, says author and creator of the TE Practice. In her groundbreaking book Memory in Our Bones: Exploring the Mysteries of mind Body and Spirit, Burke draws on the latest research and 25 years of clinical and personal experience to demonstrate that unresolved memories and emotions imprint themselves upon our psyches and actually descend into our cells, bones, and tissue. Once here, they cause a myriad of problems from complex emotional reactions to relationship conflicts and even physical symptoms Burke explains.

In recognition of this achievement, Memory in Our Bones has been awarded the 2009 Bronze Medal in the Mind, Body, and Spirit category from the Independent Publisher (IPPY) Book Awards. Burke’s in-depth examination of the nature of consciousness demonstrates that “our memories and emotions can and do cross the barriers of time and death to reemerge in our bodies and lives.” This may sound ominous, but Burke reassures readers that deep and lasting change is possible. Imprinted memories and emotions can be easily resolved and released by using the simple, direct practices presented in Memory in Our Bones.

Not surprisingly, the book has been endorsed by  individuals in the fields of spirituality and healing  (http://memoryinourbones.com/press/index.html). Leza Lowitz, award-winning poet of Yoga Poems: Lines to Unfold, says this: “Each of us has a story, written on the body. How do we unlock memory and trauma from deep within our cells, releasing the stories that no longer serve us? Drawing on years of research in science, spirituality, psycho-energetic and somatic studies from Buddhist, Taoist and Shamanist traditions, Memory in Our Bones gives us the tools, courage, and inspiration to rewrite our own life stories from a place of compassion and empowerment. I recommend it highly to any human being who wishes to open up to greater joy and vitality in an embodied, transcendent way.”

Burke’s Memory in Our Bones shares mesmerizing stories and user-friendly meditations to expand awareness and provide hope for all those who hold painful memories within them…In other words, each and every one of us.

Why do I Feel Invisible?

Sometimes it is the smallest forgotten moment that can change your perception of yourself  and your world. That was the case for a client, Anna, who came to see me because she was feeling invisible at work. She did excellent work but had been passed over for promotions. Why did she feel so invisible and unseen? She really wanted to understand why this was happening.  And she really wanted the raise she deserved.

She shared that even when she was a child she felt like she disappeared, often into books, which were her passion. But she did not want to feel this way anymore.

With such a clear desire and goal I asked her to breath deeply and to touch into her heart-mind and to gently go back to the first time she felt this sense of being invisible.

As she closed her eyes I felt her body relax and drift back in time. She opened her eyes a few minutes later and told me this story.

She was three years old when her grandparents came for a visit. It was a hot summer day along the gulf and her older brother and sister and she were playing outside when they arrived.

Her grandparents asked if they would like to go get ice cream and promptly took the two older children out to Woolworth’s leaving my client behind. When her brother and sister returned with ice cream she was so sad and just withdrew.

As she remembered these events she realized how invisible this made her feel. She was standing right there, next to her brother and sister but her grandparents went without her-they took the hands of her siblings and they all piled into the car leaving her behind.

She never realized how hurt she had been or how invisible she felt. She shared that this seemingly small action on the part of her grandparents has really impacted her and that until this moment she had never thought of that day. But she got how this simple experience made her feel invisible at her job in the present.

She reflected that her introverted childhood was probably a reaction to not wanting to be hurt and left out again. And she understood how energetically she withdrew unknowingly to this very day in her daily life. She also laughed and said that her grandparents probably did not want to have to double team with three kids in tow.

We worked with the emotions and memories and she left my office feeling rejuvenated, confident and ready to take her place as a visible member of her team at work.

She also had the skills to care for her past self, so she would never be invisible again. And when her next job review came up she received that long awaited raise, and was seen for the capable and smart woman that she was.

As you can see it is not only the big events that impact you, small moments that you have long forgotten can be the roots of problems or challenges you are facing in your daily life. Like this woman you too can find healing and restore your self-esteem and sense of identity by working with the emotional memories you have long forgotten. Inner peace, empowerment and renewed self-confidence can be your once again.

Derailed Dreams

How Roger discovered the roots of his heart disease and cancer.

It never ceases to amaze me when I see the direct links between the wounds and disconnections from the past and how they can lead to symptoms that are both emotional and physical in the present. Recently I worked with a man, who was feeling as if his life has never been in sync. You may know this feeling. He also shared that in the last year, after decades of living a healthy lifestyle that he was diagnosed with heart disease then prostate cancer within a matter of months.

He urgently wanted to understand why this had happened, he ate well, did not drink or smoke, did not use drugs and yet here he was in chemo and radiation therapy fighting for his life. As he shared his personal story, concerns and his deep desire to feel connected a picture in my mind began to take shape. It was clear that his father was somehow involved and that this was the first place where his sense of disconnection took place. As I shared this he expressed that as a young man he wanted to be a wildlife photographer and writer. His father however had other plans for him.

Being a business mogul and a captain of industry he wanted his son to follow in his footsteps. Being the good son he did what his father desired. He went to an ivy-league school and got a business degree and MBA. Like a train derailed from its track this man’s life started to take a course that was not his own. Even thought he had used his family’s money wisely and with great altruism after his father’s death there was no satisfaction in it. It left him feeling empty.

What became crystal clear was that both his heart disease, which manifested as a alarmingly slow heart rate that the doctors said could lead to a heart attack or stroke at any time and his prostate cancer were linked to this man’s not taking the course that was his original desire in life. His heart was not in the game and was not doing what he had wanted most, to be a photographer and writer.

Connections surfaced more and more as we talked and he comprehended how his inner male energy had been disabled by this simple act of submission to his father’s desires. He saw how in essence and energy this emasculated him; just as the chemo drugs were doing now.

He saw his heart disease in a new light as well, seeing how his desire to please his father and later his friends and colleagues was often not in alignment with his own desires. He also realized how he gave away his power and male energy, which looked flattened and almost lifeless to me, by letting others take the reins and by not saying no to those he loved.

We worked thru many layers and he began to see clearly how the structures, behaviors and beliefs had affected his health and relationships. He walked away with a variety of energetic exercises and a deep sense of how he had to proceed. He felt he was in charge of his life now – not his doctors, another set of authority figures, nor his wife or business partners but himself. He could say no to things that did not resonate in his heart. And he realized what he had accomplished in his life and gave thanks for his family’s legacy and money, which allowed him to do so much for his community and family.

For years now, I have seen how symptoms are linked to the past and how events from the past can create deep schisms in your body and spirit. Finding the moments where the train was switched to another track and resolving and revisioning these moments and the patterns they create can lead to new found hope, deep release of old wounds, more harmony and peace in your life.

Empowerment and healing come when you reflect upon your past and see the energy connections that are linked to your symptoms in the present. This path of rediscovering your inner truth and moving from that deep place of truth can help you heal your life in ways you may never have imagined possible. It is yet to be seen if this man will heal from the diseases that have manifested within his body but he has a chance now to heal the disconnect he has felt so long within his heart and mind.

Psycho-energetic and somatic therapy combined with intuitive and spiritual insights can help you connect the dots and see the big picture. You can find clarity, relief, and hope, insight, empowerment and greater well-being, it is right here – within you.

2009 IPPY Award for Memory In Our Bones

I am so excited that after 12 years I can share Memory In Our Bones, which just won a bronze medal in the 2009 IPPY Awards with you.

This book answers deep questions about the nature of consciousness and healing and sets forth simple and direct practices for creating greater inner awareness and peace.

This innovative and amazing book offers a new vision of our bodies and ourselves. You will find out that memories are not only held within your brain, but that they are embodied and timeless. They live within your very cells, bones and tissues as imagery and energy, fueling your emotions and experiences, everyday.

You will also learn how and why memories, emotions and beliefs are sustained, what triggers them to ripen and how to release them and find lasting peace.

Stories of how we are eternal, fully capable of healing and changing both our outward and inner realities dance across the pages as clients and students reveal their stories of change and transformation.

By listening to the intuitive mind and understanding the imagery within the body—answers and understanding can be found. Memory In Our Bones encourages you to look within to find answers and understanding, so you can ultimately heal yourself.

Memory In Our Bones builds on cutting-edge science and marries science and spirituality—giving readers a new methodology for self-discovery and healing. The therapy it lays out, which I created in 1991, has helped my clients and students for nearly two decades. You will find the necessary steps to embark upon this healing journey. People are urgently looking for change and empowerment —–this book offers them just that

Memory In Our Bones

I will be sharing energy practice and articles that will help you clear the energy patterns held within your cells, bones and tissues, using a body of work I created in 1991 and have been teaching ever since.

New Beginnings —Healing Origins and Discovering the Power of Embodied Memory

We are alive with memory. It flows in our cells, bones, tissues and consciousness. The last frontier is inner space and it is within us where our answers lie. Our symptoms and emotions are the body and mind’s way of getting our attention and they provide us with a way into the richness our inner world.

Using our powers of intuition, visualization and deep inquiry and by contacting our innate inner wisdom we can find healing. We need only take the leap into our body and chakras, symptoms and emotions to find the memories, patterns and beliefs that hold our memories in place and limit us. Our chakras are centers for contacting and tapping into these memories, emotions and beliefs that lie dormant within us and are a wellspring of information and energy.

Memories and emotions are imprinted in our chakras, cells, organs and bones, quietly waiting. Waiting for us to be courageous enough to face the origins of our confusion, grief, anger, fear, phobias, doubt and suffering. When we engage our body memory and consciousness directly, we can emerge from this journey, with the keys to releasing our symptoms, complex emotions and the traumas and events from both this and other lifetimes.

Each of you has answers within you, you just need to be ready to ask the necessary questions, instead of dancing around an issue, try grabbing it like a tango dancer, embrace it, and take action. Your body and consciousness hold all of your memories— from the moment you first took birth, so use this, don’t fear or avoid your pain or symptoms, engage them, and allow healing to flow into your heart and mind.

Your body is like a great library and by asking questions that about  the symptom or emotion you are feeling, you can find answers. The question is the key and by asking it, you unlock the memories, emotions and scenarios from across time, from your childhood, from other lifetimes and even from when you were in the womb.

These memories will surface if you cultivate a mind that does not know, judge or fantasize. This is what Suzuki Roshi called a beginner’s mind. This kind of mind that is curious— free of expectations, and preconceived notions is essential, then the doors of deep healing can open.

The origins of your current struggles can become clear to you, and with compassionate discernment, you can discover the beliefs that hold these ancient memories and emotions in play. By doing this your symptoms and emotional states can deeply change.

So, take the plunge, this spring find the freedom you long for. Release the past that binds you once and for all. Understand the ancient histories embedded within, unwind them, and you can start fresh from this moment….. from this breath.
