Using the Ancient child


I’ve been working and testing the “Ancient Child” technique for about five years now, and what people asked for was a fuller explanation, as well as a “plug and play” approach to using it.    I’ve done that, and it will be available very soon, on the new blog I’ve been creating with Wordpress guru Lorelle VanFossen.  

Let’s discuss one application of the technique: emotional abuse.  Especially if the abuse originated in childhood, this can be devastating.  A parent who damages heart and body, or fails to provide protection for same, changes the profoundly important relationship with your core self, affecting:

  1. Ambition
  2. Self-love
  3. Ability to find honest healthy relationships
  4. Self-discipline (why bother if you aren’t worth it?)
  5. Co-dependency
  6. Creativity
  7. Artistic success (which is a balance between “creative child” and “marketing/agenting adult)
  8. Body composition issues (obesity and anorexia)
  9. Self-damaging (cutting, etc.)
  10. Drug and alcohol abuse
  11. Sexual issues

And much much more.  The “Ancient Child” technique can have a powerful effect here, because the “child” image you create is, specifically, a representation of the child you were BEFORE the abuse began.   (Note: if you have serious abuse issues, please seek therapeutic assistance.   Your  therapist should be aware of what you intend to do here)

What you have to do is:

  1. Enter a state of deep relaxation.   Meditation or self-hypnosis.
  2. Connect with your own heartbeat and “source of love.”
  3. Visualize the child self.
  4. Connect with the child self: visualize holding, hugging, playing with.   
  5. Remember the first time you held your own child, or held a baby sister, brother, or cousin.    Find the “protective” door in your mind, even if it was only for a puppy or kitten.   It’s there.  You have the wiring.  Or: remember/imagine being held and nurtured in infancy.   EVERYONE was, whether you can remember it or not.  Human beings who are not nurtured in infancy DO NOT SURVIVE.  You may have blanked it out...but it happened. Find it.  Meditate and search within yourself until you can find this strand of love, unbroken through the generations, back to the beginning of our species.
  6. Commit to being your own mother/father.  To DIE before you let anyone else hurt that child again.  To protecting her dreams and hopes.    To spending every day loving and nurturing.  
  7. Tell her/him.  Say the words. Speak them aloud: “You are the most precious thing in all the world.  Daddy is here, and I will never leave you alone again.”
  8. Listen to what that “child” self has to say in  return.   See if there is a conversation to be conducted.
  9. After you have emerged from your relaxed state, use your non-dominant hand (your left, if you are right-handed) to write a letter FROM your “child” to your current, adult self.  Read it aloud.

This process can be of stupendous benefit.  Please, please--even if you are “healthy” you will find it useful to connect to your creativity and aliveness.  But if, like most of us, you’ve been banged up by life or have issues with parents, it is close to miraculous.

The process was given to me by a succession of phenomenally wise men and women.  And is yours.

ージ師によるスペシャルサービスをしてもらえるという点です。台北風俗年齢層は30代の方が多いですが、気持ちいいマッサージの後にはしっかりと挿入までさせてくれるというサービスっぷり。料金も日本円で10,000円そこそこと思ったほどは高くはなく、宿をとっていない観光客にとって簡易休憩所としても使われているそうです。亜太サウナ【2020年最新版】の特徴は睡眠室が非常に広いことが特徴で、旅の疲れを気持ちいい性サービスと巨大なリクライニングチェアで癒すのもオススメです。亜太桑拿の口コミ・体験談さて、15Fに到着後、流れとしては、まずロッカーに荷物を入れて、大浴場で風呂に入って、休憩室でくつろいでいると必ずオババがやってきて、「スペシャルマッサージ?」と聞いてくるので、台湾風俗コクリとうなずけば一つ上のフロアにある隠し扉の向こうの部屋に連れて行かれます。この隠し扉、完全にドラゴンクエストの影響を受けた扉で、一見の価値ありです。マジでビックリしました。あとは、部屋に案内され、ベッドで横になって待っているも、適度なマッサージと性サービスを受けられる幸せを感じたいのであればとてもオススメです。ただし女性のチェンジは可能ですが、在籍人数の関係や年齢層が高めであることはある程度覚悟しましょう。金年華桑拿口コミ・体験談 フリーのお茶を手にテーブルに着くと、それとわかるママさんが隣のテーブルの日本人らしき2人連れの客に営業をかけてます。
