After Expand The Box training, a few Possibility Coaching sessions and a Possibility Lab or two, it is quite common that the Flux Point for a person to take their next evolutionary step originates in a 'past life'.
What does this even mean? What exactly are we talking about here? Excellent questions!
Fortunately we are NOT talking about or trying to explain or trying to understand what it could mean that: a Client's healing or breakthrough in this life occurs through facing into something that occurred in their 'past life'.
What we are doing is explaining a modality of interaction that creates quite profound and valuable clarity and possibility for the Client.
We have found while delivering Emotional Healing Processes since 1991 that using the framework and acting 'as if it is true' that what is occurring during a Client's process took place in a previous incarnation has the capacity to produce what one could only describe as 'miraculous' evolutionary and healing changes in their life.
There are so many stories to tell... Here is but one:
A man in his early thirties participates in a Possibility Lab together with his girlfriend. For the first couple days they engage the processes and exercises but nothing stands out about them. They came to the Lab because she wanted to get married and have children, but he keeps refusing, plus his business never quite gets off the ground. He also has a bump on the back of his neck since birth. The deformity has pained him his whole life no matter what the doctors, chiropractors, homeopaths, osteopaths, and energy healers did.
On the morning of the third day of the Possibility Lab, while sitting in the morning Circle, the Trainer notices that the man's left leg is still bouncing up and down. It has been jiggling like that the whole training. The Trainer asks everyone to help him Hold Space, and when they agree, he asks the man to let the bouncing get bigger, to stop holding it back. "We are ready to receive the communication from your bouncing left leg," he says.
The man says nothing but his leg starts bouncing more severely. Soon it is reaching far into the air and pounding onto the floor of the training room. He desperately holds onto the chair. The Trainer asks for help to move the man off the chair and onto a mattress in the center of the circle. He asks the man to let any associated feelings come up, allowing the sounds and words to come out. "Don't hurt yourself. Don't hurt anyone else. Do you agree?" says the Trainer. The man agrees. Then the man starts wildly flailing about the mattress screaming, "No! No! Stop!" as he expresses a massive mix of rage, fear, and sadness.
The Trainer asks the man to stay in the feelings at around 30% intensity and to answer the Trainer's questions, even if the man feels like he is making the answers up. "Is it day time, or night time?" asks the Trainer. "Nearly dusk," says the man. "Are you inside or outside?" asks the Trainer. "Outside, in the field near our village," says the man. Through further such questions, the following story emerges.
The man is the Mayor of a small farming town. Somehow they are warned that the conquerors are coming. The Mayor makes an emergency action to have everyone evacuate the village and go up into the cave at the base of the mountains just past the fields. His wife and children are among those who drop everything and run for the cave. In the distance they can hear the pounding hooves of the evil conquerors charging into their village. But the men do not stop to pillage and burn as expected. Instead they ride entirely through the town. Peering from the mouth of the cave the Mayor sees his mistake. As the townspeople hurried across the field to the cave they trampled the crops and left an unmistakable track indicating to the raiders exactly where the townspeople were hiding.
Immediately the Mayor snatches the white apron from his wife and fashions a white flag on a walking stick. He runs down out of the cave towards the charging army waving the flag of truce and surrender, hoping to negotiate a manageable payoff for the invaders. But they have their eyes on another treasure, the women and children. They don't even slow down for the Mayor. The leader pulls out his sword and slices off the Mayor's head as he rides by. The last scene that the Mayor sees is the horsemen riding up into the cave full of screams from his family and the villagers.
In that moment (long ago, in a galaxy far, far away) the Mayor makes life-shaping decisions. The Trainer says, "As you lie there dying, watching your family and village get wiped out, what did you decide?" The man sobs and cries with screams of fear and rage, "I will never marry again because I cannot protect my wife. I will never have a family again because I cannot save my children. I will never take a leadership position again because I make bad decisions, and the whole village suffers. I cannot be trusted as a leader." While he screams out his past life vows, everyone in the room hears bone crunching sounds coming from the man's neck. He screams in pain and confusion.
After a while, things settle down. The Trainer asks, "Are any of these old decisions influencing your life today?" The man says, "Yes. All of them." The Trainer asks, "Would you like to make any new decisions?" The man says, "Yes." The Trainer asks, "What would your new decisions be?" Together they negotiate realistic new decisions.
During check-in after lunch the man reports with tears pouring down his cheeks, "I want to tell you something. My neck is better. The bump at the back of my neck is completely gone. I don't know what to say. I cannot really believe it. The bump has been there since I was born, and it hurt the whole time. Now the back of my neck is smooth and there is no pain at all."
A year later we accidentally meet this man on the street. We ask him how he is doing. He says, "I am married. My girlfriend and I got married. We have one child and a second one is on the way. My neck does not hurt. The bump never came back. And my business is flying."
Miracles like this... in inexplicable abundance.
