I recently met with a woman who’d attended the metamorphic touch workshop I taught. When she told me about her year, I was reminded of the beauty of this practice in times of loss and bereavement.
The loss of a loved one
When her grandson died a few months ago she reached out to a woman she’d met on the course. They swapped sessions once a week. She found herself more able to express her emotions, grieve and find peace. She also offered sessions to the child’s parents and other family members.
She now looked very different from one year ago. When I first met her she was a strong, matter of fact, and even slightly intimidating person. Now she was open hearted and welcoming, with a softness in her face and shining eyes. I could see that a transformation had taken place, but I would never have guessed that she’d also gone through such a powerful challenge.
The loss of a child
A woman came on a workshop when she fell pregnant for the first time at 49. The child had been diagnosed with Down’s Syndrome, but despite suggestions to terminate the pregnancy she wanted to keep the child. She practiced MT on herself daily. I contacted her a few weeks after her due date to see how she was. The child had died after 10 days but she told me their journey together had been the most powerful and amazing experience of her life. She was in such a state of peace, gratitude and acceptance that I was truly moved and humbled.
The loss of a parent
Two years ago my godson lost is mum. He was only 9 when it happened and it was a huge shock to us all. Before, he had never shown much interest in receiving sessions from me. Now, when I tucked him up in bed, I would ask ‘ shall I do your feet?’. He let stroke his feet gently as I tucked him up. I was so surprised when he came up to me the next day and said ‘ thank you for doing my feet last night’. I gave him sessions whenever we were together and he has prospered.
When we touch the feet, hands and head, we do so without any agenda. We know that real transformation cannot be imposed from outside and must come from within. We offer our detachment, a practice of unconditional love, and leave them a free space in which their own life force can do whatever is right for them.
From pain to acceptance
After sessions people often find that rather than holding on to grief, their sadness can finally come up and out. When I suffered two losses recently, I found that after sessions, the shock to my heart lessened. We all have our way of dealing with the loss of a loved one. If shock or grief gets in the way of you finding peace, gratitude, and acceptance, a metamorphic technique session is a wonderful tool to have at your disposal. This tender touch is kind and non invasive. It does not try to change you but allows you to be exactly as you are so that you can find your own way through the experience.
In 2004, I began training in Metamorphic Technique with it's founder, Gaston Saint-Pierre. I became a practitioner, then a teacher in 2006, which led me to run workshops all around the world. I then created Sacred Life Alchemy, the Co-Create with the Field Manifesting Process, and Heart Listening, three profound healing systems to transform your reality into more of what you want. In 2017, I renamed my teaching Metamorphic Touch to reflect the new insights and perspectives I bring to this approach. Metamorphic Touch is a powerful healing modality to transform your life.
