Finding the memory
How to find the memory that created the emotions that we need to face? The main approach is actually your emotions the way they appear in our life. To start observing your life and notice when you are angry, disappointed, sad and when you feel guilty or feel that others are better than you ... Every day, these or similar emotions are activated in greater or lesser extent. These emotions are signals to you about what the "baggage" is about. Sometimes it's sufficient to work with them when they occur, but the most effective is to go back to the "roots", which means the first time they occurred.
After you have worked through a memory, you may see several "parallels", i.e. later events and understand how the thought pattern that you developed in the first situation, has created similar situations.
You can also observe your life and look for returning negative thoughts about yourself or other people. They are there as a result of wounds and as defense mechanisms. To accept the pain that cause such negative thoughts is really opening doors in your life.
The impulse that comes here and now
When you feel an unpleasant emotion coming up, try to find a space for yourself, close your eyes, and ask inwards: "Where does this come from?" If a memory comes up, you'll probably recognize it as a memory that is about the same kinds of emotions as those you feel now. Go back there and experience the situation as it was. Feel the emotions and recognize your feelings one by one. You will notice that it is as if you open a lid to your inner self if you do this thoroughly. As you open to realize exactly what you feel, honestly from your heart, more emotions come up to the surface. This is our soul's nature. It is important to continue until you calm down and you have "emptied yourself". What you felt in relation to yourself and what you felt in relation to others. Describe exactly how you feel when accepting. As it bubbles up new feelings, you might suddenly be able to get up several situations that is about the same pattern. Watch them and see the connections, but keep in the memory where you are until you are finished, and has let go of the pain. Many times other situations dissolves by themselves when your soul recognize and understand. Alternatively, you can work with them afterwards.
Use of the emotion map and the body signals
When you feel an unpleasant feeling arising in your daily life, is there a pain or sensation in the body simultaneously? Alternatively - if you have physical pain; it may come from oppressed feelings. Take a look at the summary of where in the body the different feelings create pain to find out whether your emotions are similar to some of those that are plotted there. The emotion map is intended as a guide to show the direction of where to search inside of yourself. It is important that you don’t use only the emotions at the map, but let it show the direction for your work. - And when you start working through the emotions, try out many different ways to put your emotions into words. Two words that are similar to each other may work completely different. You know it with your entire being when the feeling you recognize fits! Use the emotion map in combination with the impulses that come to you. Suddenly you may remember a painful situation that you need to go back to, to release.
To see old pictures
You can sit down with closed eyes, relax deeply and then visualise an album where your name and date of birth is written on the outside with beautiful letters. Create it thoroughly in your imagination so that you can find it later. It is the album of your life. Ask your soul to let you see what you need to see right now, and then open the album. On the first page you will get a glimse of something... Or a picture of a memory becomes clear. That is the memory you need to look at first. It may be a good memory because your soul wants to show you to find happiness or appreciate yourself. Reflect on what happened. It may be a memory that make you remember something unpleasant. Those feelings are what you need to face by realizing exactly what you feel.
You may also find old photos or albums in your home and reflect on what you felt in your physical pictures.
Travel into the physical painI do it this way: I let the thought move directly to the painful area and holds it there. I then ask the cells to tell me the memory that makes them feel so bad. Stay in the pain point with your thought and ask for information about what creates it. You can get words, images, a flash, phrases etc. The memory can be quite obvious if you remember it from your life. Go ahead and start admitting exactly what you feel and the memory gets clearer!
I was inspired by a method that the American author Brandon Bays shows the world through her book "The Journey". It tells about how to travel with the thought into the pain in our body. Our cells have all the information we need. They give those signals to our mind by giving us the pain to tell that “this is something that is not in harmony with the life energy. Soul energy is in every cell, so that the soul's wounds reflect the pains and illnesses in the body. If you decide to try this method, I warmly recommend Brandon Bays' book also.There may be a memory you cannot remember with the conscious part of your mind. Then you might get bits, just sensations or words. Know, what you feel is always correct, start to admit whatever you feel. Bringing your emotions from the everyday situation when you start, is guiding you on. When you go into your cells in this way, you can get a surprise because our cells carry the memories that many people do not want to face. It may be something you have suppressed completely, because it was too painful to see. Your cells can also bring up memories / feelings right back to the fetal stage.
You may get scenes that you immediately know that you haven’t experienced in this life. They are scenes from past lives that you carry in your cells. Our experience is that many people have to experience that we live many lives on earth before they accept it. When we go into these images and discover how the event and emotions affect the choices and actions in this life – no one doubts it anymore.
Using a relaxation method, travelling back with the help of guidance.
I offer a CD which leads the inner journey. You can use it to work on your own when you feel ready for it. If you are not accustomed to working on your own, be patient with yourself. This CD is made so that you first are guided to relax and then the rest is guided step by step. There are long pauses where you can work with recognizing feelings, forgiving and loving. When being true to yourself, you will come to a breakthrough.
Using the pendulum as a tool to find the memory
Many people might be surprised of how it’s possible to find answers by using a pendulum. It is because we are used to think of the physical reality as the only real. As pendulum you can use a necklace that you attach at one end of the chain or a ready-bought to use for the purpose.
Mysterious you might think? The thing is, that everything is energy. You can communicate with your soul and body cells this way.
We can ask questions of the pendulum by holding it steady with our hand, let it swing and then get answers. There is an energy that will always be able to give you answers when you are confident that this is so. If you call on your cell awareness, this energy can give you completely accurate answers, even about the things that you perceive as something that has happened far outside of yourself! The memory is located in the cell's consciousness.
Hold the pendulum firmly and let it hang still. Ask your cells' consciousness to show how the pendulum responds "yes". Then, how it responds "no" and then how it responds "will not / can not answer". When you have three different signals that way, you can start. When it doesn’t want to answer, it is a good reason. Maybe you already know what you ask for?
If you feel run over and hurt at your job one day and you realize that these emotions are rooted in the past, you can use the pendulum when you get home. (You may be angry at those who said or did something bad to you, but first of all try to recognize exactly what you feel. Realize that the person's behavior shows you what exist inside of you as a memory from the past. Maybe he did not mean to be bad at all.)
Once you have the contact, ask: Are these emotions from my childhood? Do you get "yes", you ask, for example: Was it from before I started school? Do you get "No", you ask: Was I older than 6 years? Do you get "cannot answer”, maybe it was when you were 6 years! The pendulum is able to show you exactly to the memory. When you start asking, your emotions and your intuition give you the questions. And suddenly you are in a memory that made you feel exactly the same kind of feelings as today, and you are on your way to release them!
It needs not work so smoothly, but do not give up. You might get "no" when asked if it happened in your childhood. Then you can for example ask: Was it during adolescence? Was it in adulthood? You can of course get yes to both… Follow your intuition, the emotions and notice any pain in your body when you ask further. For example you can ask: Is this an issue from school? The pupils? My parents? Siblings? Relate the questions to where you lived, the things that were parts of your life at that time. If you remember the memory, it will come to you. If not, keep asking until you can make the situation match your sensations.
If you have a lid on it, feel your emotions and admit what you feel. The very most important is to know whether the answers match your feelings and work to realize exactly what you feel, etc. If the answer is incorrect, go back for a while and ask again. Follow the impulses that come to you in the meantime. (We all try to avoid pain and in the beginning of release work we often avoid going into memories.)
Do you get "no" to all questions about when it happened in this life, then ask: Does this come from a painful situation in a past lifetime? Do you get yes, you stand in front of an exciting exploration journey. Ask for ex: Did things happen in my country? Was it in Europe? Was it BC? Was I rich? Was I poor? Was I married? etc. Let the situation that triggered the event accompany and guide you on how to ask! One relevant question: Is there anyone in the situation that I know in this life?
The situation is similar to what happened to you this day, as the feelings you bring with you from the now into that time frame and experience, are the same. Perhaps you come to the Middle Ages, perhaps to the last century. In the same way as before: Realize exactly what you feel and you're at it.
