"In preparation to return to work as a psychologist I not
only wanted to study and work on my counseling skills, I wanted to do the inner
work that would prepare me to be fully present for my clients. Judy Steele,
utilizing TAT [Tapas Acupressure Technique], assisted me to relate present
struggles and vulnerabilities to early and ongoing issues in my life. I learned
to release patterns that were not working for me anymore despite their original
value. I was able to invite new patterns of thinking and feeling, being and
acting into my life that allowed me to reconnect more fully with universal
power. It was a deeply inspiring experience for me and I am grateful for Judy’s
intuition and grace in facilitating my work. I whole-heartedly recommend this
process and Judy’s gentle presence."
"After dealing for several years with a major health crisis, I had been doing my best to help myself heal. I worked at understanding the relationship between health in my body and thoughts in my head. I read a lot of books and talked with a lot of people. I thought I understood the link between what I thought and what my body did with that thought. I practiced affirmations endlessly. However, I was frustrated by the pace of my healing, confused over what actions I "should" take, and my head was filled, filled with criticizing chatter. I felt in a fog, directionless, adrift, and stuck. I mentioned this situation to a health practitioner I knew and she thought a new perspective was in order, so I found Judy and the flower essences.
"The essences have helped me take the understanding out of my head and move it down to my heart. Instead of practicing affirmations, I find that the positive statements I choose now simply resonate as a truth within me. I work on no longer "shoulding" myself and instead learn to trust my choices. The essences have been a quiet, encouraging energy allowing my own inner voice to be heard more clearly and helping me to reduce the chatter in my head. They help me move towards a sense of balance. They have been helping me to shift my insecurities towards more self confidence.
"The changes are subtle and gentle for me. I am learning how to feel safe within myself, to view change not as filled with fear but as filled with possibilities. As a gardener, I have been amazed to find how often I have placed in my garden the actual flowers that correspond to the essences that I need. It's that little voice inside me, again. This reinforces for me the marvelous sense of connection with the Universe.
"I also want to thank Judy for creating such a healing environment, for her encouragement, and for knowing just what I need." --Susan ("She who found courage through the essences to leave her job and have her company pay her monthly NOT to return.")
The following report is from a client whose flower essence combination was chosen primarily to begin to heal the effects of emotional abuse and neglect by her mother, physical abuse, feelings of shame, loss of many friends to death, and her tendencies to be stuck in the past and to revert to a "child state." (Note the correspondence of the items in her report to these issues.)
This was her first flower essence combination. She did not know which of her issues the combination was intended to address, and she did not know the healing qualities of the particular essences she was given. Here is her report:
"I noticed these ten improvements after taking the flower essence combination for one week:
1. Feeling less threatened and less affected by others'
"After 2 weeks of using it 4x/day I stopped for 3 days to see what the effect would be... All the positive feelings and improved thoughts went away. I was miserable and life felt not worth living. I am convinced this Flower Essence combination is helpful to me." --Lynn B.
[Note: After an essence combination has been used long enough, the changes hold and it is not necessary to continue using that formula. The length of time needed to reach that point varies greatly, depending on the individual situation.]
For the full report, see: "The Dynamind Technique for 'Instant Healing': Two Cases" by Judy Steele in International Journal of Healing and Caring - On-line (www.ijhc.org), Vol. 2, No. 2, May 2002 [also includes an application of Tapas Acupressure Technique]
The first case, Sue, illustrates the use of Dynamind to clear most of the residual pain from a nurse's fractured foot--pain that had persisted for a number of weeks after the cast had been removed. Sue's belief about the time needed for healing had created a blockage to her own healing; nevertheless, with the help of Dynamind plus the Huna technique of "reprogramming the ku," she was able to change that belief, and release her pain. Sue's case also illustrates the clearing of a pain memory related to an earlier surgery, as well as the residual pain from the recent fracture.
Some of Sue's comments: "During the Dynamind process, it seemed so simple. Initially, I was just thinking, 'Well, this is interesting,' and didn’t really feel any change after the first few rounds. But then, after we started working with it more, the pain was slowly decreasing.... The process was wonderful! I would certainly recommend it to anybody who had any pain. I was surprised at how well it worked."
The second case, "Miriam," covers two sessions separated by 3 1/2 months. In the first, a generalized lack of trust--in other people and in the client's own intuition--is cleared. In the second, three very important emotional issues and experiences, from a period of years, are cleared in one session--a remarkable example of what can happen when the client is ready, willing, and able to visualize easily. In this second part of Miriam's case, Dynamind is combined with Tapas Acupressure Technique (TAT) for clearing emotional trauma and accident-related physical problems.
Some of Miriam's comments: "A year following my car accident,
I continued to experience daily, debilitating pain in my back, neck, arms and
hands. Because this puzzled my
Chiropractor, even though we were doing everything we could, I’d begun to sense
that there was another component to the pain I experienced....
through the process [with Judy] of making statements, tapping, breathing head to feet,
seemed so very simple that I didn’t see how my initial score could change. So I was pleasantly surprised when it
actually did after the first few rounds!
(I had a genuine curiosity about the process along with a deep security
and trust in Judy, which I believe makes a difference in how willing or open
one is to allowing changes to happen.)
the next few months I experienced a renewed vigor in my physical body (i.e.
being able to do more yoga as well as daily chores) and much less pain. Into the fall, I noticed that I was holding
back in my relationship with my boyfriend (and still having regular bouts of
pain), so decided to schedule with Judy again.
As Judy guided me through this seeming
maze of issues my intuitive senses opened to perceive all the truth about
them. I realized that my old patterns
and beliefs about “what a person really
means” had become entangled with other possibilities of reality. It is not easy to put into words the
quality of the perceptions and experiences I had during that session. Of course, there was the timeless aspect:
While reliving events that took place over several years, I changed them in a
matter of minutes! There were also the
physical sensations; ranging from tightness due to perceived rejection or
injustice, to the soft, openness of letting go to allow myself to have whatever
I needed in a given event. Certainly
this does relate to my first session about trusting – mostly trusting myself!
whole session reminded me of living in the midst of miracles. These were dramatic changes that took
place in my life. My awareness of this
fact was even more solidified from writing this case response. It clarifies that with my eyes open I found
my guides needed for healing myself and making my life more enjoyable. All around me are the beauties of life,
which I receive with gratitude. "
