Please explain muscle checking and what is its history?
The Resonance Repatterning Institute teaches Resonance Kinesiology - muscle checking - for two specific uses:
In a pilot research study conducted in 2004, 95% of the responding clients reported feeling "better to a lot better" after their Resonance Repatterning sessions. Many people express amazement when the muscle checking tool identifies life issues the practitioner could not have known about.
In the Resonance Repatterning system we do not use muscle checking to measure if something is right or wrong or if something is true or false. We only check what we resonate with. For this reason, it is not used for prophecy, as a psychic tool, for medical diagnosis, or for confirming prescriptive drugs. It is particularly important to avoid using muscle checking to identify whether past trauma or abuse occurred or with whom. If someone resonates with past trauma, it is the resonance that needs to be transformed.
What is resonance?
Resonance describes a state in which a particular note (or frequency) that is not actively vibrating begins to vibrate in response to another, similar frequency that is actively vibrating.
For example, when you resonate with an idea you are set vibrating by it. When you resonate with a person, his or her presence, or even the thought of the person can set you vibrating in harmonic resonance.
Love, for example is a highly coherent and consistent frequency. When you "fall in love" you are set vibrating by, or you resonate with, this highly coherent frequency.
If you resonate with love you automatically experience joy, energy and pleasure. If you do not resonate with love you cannot attune yourself to this frequency or the joy, energy and pleasure it brings to you.
Anger on the other hand contains a dissonant rate of vibration, lacking consistency and coherence. This is why a boss's anger, for example, can easily spread throughout the company as dissonance, discomfort, upset, miscommunication and lowered productivity. If something in you resonates with or is attuned to that anger, you will react to it and be affected by it. If you don't resonate with it, the anger will have no effect on you.
What you resonate with determines what you attract, since resonance automatically creates a field of attraction for better or for worse.
Dissonant patterns you resonate with vibrate through your body-mind energy system as poor health, difficult relationships, depression, stress and failure.
Harmonious patterns you resonate with vibrate through your body-mind energy system as vibrant health, a positive attitude, loving relationships, confidence and a sense of success in all you do.
Why was the name changed from Holographic Repatterning to Resonance Repatterning?
When Chloe Wordsworth began developing the Resonance Repatterning® system in 1990, she experimented with a variety of names, seeking one that would most aptly reflect the depth, power and scope of the work.
She used the concept of Holographic Repatterning® because according to new physics, human beings are holographic representations of the universe.
While Holographic Repatterning reflects the work's umbrella concept, Chloe began to research a more accessible name that would reflect the meaning of the work actually experienced by teachers, practitioners and students worldwide.
Since the beginning, Chloe understood that "resonance" determines our ability to change. What we resonate with affects what we attract into our life. Recognizing that resonance is the key concept on which this work has been based since its beginning, it was a natural decision to rename the work: the Resonance Repatterning system.
Both names stand and are used interchangeably by both teachers and practitioners.
Can you use Resonance Repatterning on animals and plants?
Using the Resonance Repatterning® process with animals, like working with children, often has dramatic results. Given the right circumstances of safety, love and a tool to resolve the pain of past unmet life needs, animals quickly clear their non-coherent patterns.
People who use the process on their plants report positive, sometimes astonishing growth results.
The whole of creation is a field of pulsing, vibrating energy. When energy is blocked in its natural pulsation, then pain, disease and problems result whether in a human, animal or plant.
Is Resonance Repatterning a spiritual path?
The Resonance Repatterning Institute teaches a holistic self-healing system that supports positive quantum change in any field of endeavor. Its foundation and inner structure include spiritual principles, but it is not a spiritual path or a substitute for a religious practice.
In the Resonance Repatterning system, we recognize that energy consists of varying frequencies, the most highly vibrating of which we call the divine life force. When this frequency is stepped down in vibration it is known as the mind, which at a lower frequency manifests as the emotions. The lowest and most dense frequency vibration manifests as the physical body.
All non-coherence occurs at the vibratory level of the mind, emotions and body. The coherence of each level of vibration is nurtured in specific ways: the spirit through worship of the divine; the mind through positive attitude and uplifting, focused thought; the emotions through constructive feeling responses and having one's basic life needs met; the body through healthy, life-enhancing food, liquids, movement and air as well as through beauty, harmony and truth.
The Resonance Repatterning Institute values tolerance, diversity and human rights. The Resonance Repatterning books are worded in such a way that all religious beliefs are respected. In addition, the Resonance Repatterning system teachers and practitioners are sensitive to varying religious and spiritual beliefs and are considerate of each person's religious or spiritual choice.
How many sessions do I need to receive or give myself?
How many Resonance Repatterning„¢ sessions you receive or give yourself depends on how much life you want. It also depends on how you are feeling, how you are handling stressful circumstances, your level of health, your mental state, what you want in your relationships and career.
Ultimately the number of sessions you have is determined by the help you receive from having Resonance Repatterning sessions, by your financial circumstances, by your needs of the moment and you desire for continued growth, transformation and the realization of your potential. Some people have a session when they spiral down to a lower energy state; others love to have sessions on a consistent basis to support their continued upward spiral to higher energy states of coherence.
Your practitioner avoids muscle checking how many sessions you need. Muscle checking does not predict the depth of transformation your body-mind system might be ready for in the future. Once you identify and transform negative resonance patterns in the present moment, your own natural self healing process is activated. Nature does the healing. Some people spiral up to a higher energy state of coherence after one session. Other people may require more sessions.
We suggest you start with one session. If you notice improvement - physically, emotionally, mentally or in your life situation - then you will know you are going in the right direction and can trust that this system is helping you.
To arrange a session, go to the left hand column and click on "Have a session." Then click on "Certified Practitioners" and then look for a practitioner in your area. If there isn't one near you, most practitioners offer sessions by telephone.
What is the unique offering of Resonance Repatterning?
Resonance Repatterning is aligned with new physics and traditional energy-based philosophies - that mind, emotions and body are energy step-downs of spirit (the divine energy that sustains and maintains the creation).
The Resonance Repatterning system teaches that we exist as fields of vibrating frequencies. Our thoughts, feelings, needs and physical symptoms are all vibratory expressions that manifest positively or negatively in our health, our relationships, attitudes, life-issues - even in the objects we collect in our home or as the lines on our face. It is all frequencies! The frequencies we resonate with determine what we experience.
Out-of-sync, non-coherent frequency patterns that we resonate with vibrate through our body-mind energy system as poor health, difficult relationships, depression, stress and failure.
In-sync, coherent frequency patterns we resonate with vibrate through our body-mind energy system as vital health, a positive attitude, loving relationships, confidence, peace of mind and a sense of success in all we do.
The unique offering of the Resonance Repatterning system is that it gives us practical tools we can use on ourselves, others, children, even our animals, to change our resonance. In this way we naturally and easily bring our frequencies into sync and spiral to a higher energy state of well-being, coherence, compassion and joy that is our true nature.
Can Resonance Repatterning help pain?
If you feel stuck in any pain or limitation, you know you are resonating with old mental and emotional patterns - usually unconscious. Whatever the pain - physical, emotional or mental, Resonance Repatterning offers a practical, immediate, and profound system for renewed hope and extraordinary outcomes.
In sessions you receive, or in the seminars you attend, you learn the tools for moving from past painful memory imprints that are superimposed on your present state of mind, so you can re-discover your natural state of joy. It is possible to create a life you love - and help others do the same - by receiving Resonance Repatterning sessions from a certified practitioner, or learning the system for yourself.
What is quantum change and a quantum leap?
Quantum change describes a state in which subatomic particles suddenly, inexplicably, come together in a new and coherent alignment.
The experience of a Resonance Repatterning session includes the potential to spiral to a higher frequency state of coherence. Quantum change is built in. It may show up in small ways or in dramatic ways. Quantum change always represents a shift in energy, in resonance, in values, feelings and behavior that inevitably lead to beneficial outcomes.
In human life, a quantum leap is the point at which a circular stuck-in-a-rut state of mind suddenly spirals to a higher frequency state of energy, focus and positive action.
A quantum leap is not linear, left brained or logical. It's a jump that makes it possible to go from A to Z instantaneously. This means, for example, that one moment you may feel anxious, and after you muscle check for a specific modality for this problem you now experience a total shift in relation to your anxiety - usually it no longer bothers you.
Is the practitioner in charge or am I in charge of my session?
The beauty of Resonance Repatterning sessions is that through the muscle checking tool (which accesses your autonomic nervous system), and the Resonance Repatterning manuals, your practitioner is able to identify exactly what your body-mind field is ready to self-heal at this moment in time.
This means that your own body-mind field is in charge of your self-healing - facilitated by your practitioner, the Resonance Repatterning manuals and system, and the muscle checking tool.
Your practitioner brings his or her own data base of knowledge, experience and wisdom to your session; and you as a client also bring your data base of knowledge, experience and wisdom. Each session involves both people equally - working together as a team for your well-being.
As a client you will always want to work with a practitioner you resonate with - someone you feel relaxed and comfortable working with; someone you trust and feel safe with. If your practitioner muscle checks anything that doesn't sit well with you for some reason, you are welcome to ask questions and if still not satisfied you can also ask your practitioner to muscle check a substitute modality, for instance.
Are practitioners able to handle a person's in-depth issues?
Chloe: As you discovered, when someone has been severely damaged by pain in their life, we need to be extra sensitive in our use of words. Each word needs to be carefully chosen. Words are frequencies that can have a healing effect, even if you talk on the phone and are not giving the client a "session." Choose your words with care so the individual's already low self-worth is not further diminished. The person's fragile ego needs to be strengthened through empathy, gentleness and loving care.
If the individual goes into a reaction, recognize that they are in an energy constriction. Gently move them into their parasympathetic nervous system through the sound and calmness of your voice - gentle, slow, soothing as though talking to an infant. You might say, "Hmm, I understand. You have had so much pain. Hmm." Sometimes this is all they need - the loving mother they never had.
If we breathe deeply through our nose as they talk, they will begin to entrain with us and relax.
What humans need is so simple: someone to listen; to care; to smile; to hold our hand; to say, "you'll be ok;" to give us a little hope. Even if you do only this on the phone, you have done everything!
In doing Resonance Repatterning, we need to go slowly so our limbic-reptilian brain fight-flight system does not get activated. Perhaps the first session with a "difficult" client would be only ten minutes long. In that ten minutes you might do a simple self-healing modality such as cross-crawls to integrate her left and right brain, or the Calming Cross-Overs to help her relax her tension. You might also use a tuning fork or tone the sound frequency that she needs.
People who are fragmented, who have been on drugs or who have been abused generally have an energy field that is severely depleted. In the case of drugs, I am told, the field looks like Swiss cheese - full of holes.
Let people know in advance that you will be going very slowly. Make the time boundaries clear. This way there are no surprises, disappointments or miscommunications. Make certain that the client understands and signs the client rights form in advance of the session.
Emphasize that you are not a therapist. Make no claims. Tell the client that Resonance Repatterning identifies and transforms frequencies of negative resonance that underlie all problems and that nature then does the healing. Even identifying and transforming, "I am (name) here and now" can change a person's life!
Resonance Repatterning is inclusive. We want to work as a team with all professions, whether medical, therapeutic, chiropractic, nutritional, etc. Having a support system of other complementary services benefits the client and is comforting to us. But what if they cannot afford such professional support? Where can they turn for help? If we turn them away it can lead to hopelessness and anger.
A Resonance Repatterning practitioner phoned me and shared that she had given some sessions to a woman who had tried to "slit her wrists" four times. This woman is now back at work and is doing fine. She did not have professional support. What she got was human support.
This is not to say that we take on clients whom we feel need more help than we are ready to give or feel trained to give. It is good to recognize where our limits are and what we are ready for. If you feel that someone is beyond your capability to handle, or that it would be too difficult for you to be a loving, calm presence for such a person, at least give the person hope. Like this lady who phoned you: talk to her with love, encourage her in her healing path. Then say to her, "I want to make sure you have someone who will be able to help you. Let me get the name and number of this practitioner and I will phone you back."
When someone appears to have a mental imbalance, they may need a proxy session rather than an in-person session. There are practitioners who specialize in proxy sessions and are getting wonderful results from them. You can phone them, consult with them and refer clients like this one, to them.
