Through years of teaching mums to use the metamorphic touch with their families, I’ve learnt how wonderful this practice is with children.Their feedback has been amazing: kids transforming blocks of all kinds in very short spaces of time. When parents offer this loving touch it creates a free space for the child, allowing them to grow in a way that is right for them.
Easy to do
There is nothing quite as simple as touching your child’s feet in this way while you chat or watch telly on the couch. Often it becomes a bedtime ritual, a few minutes of metamorphic technique as you settle them in bed. Couples have shared stories of deeply reconnecting after they brought this practice into their relationship. The main thing is, you do not have to make time to do it, it can be integrated into your family’s normal activities.
Loving what is
With this work, we bring in a deep trust in Life. We know that Life itself has created our child and that any challenges they face are a part of their life’s experience. We never define them as having a problem, but rather an exploration. Any pattern that creates a challenge can easily transform into something new, more expanded, but real transformation has to come from within. It cannot be imposed by the parent.
The purpose of our challenges
In workshops we explore a set of expansive and life affirming ideas. Every child’s struggles are an integral part of their life’s journey. A woman shared about her daughter who was diagnosed with cancer at age 5. She spent a year in hospital, and went through surgery and chemotherapy. The cancer never returned but the experience inspired her to become a paediatrician. Having lived through the experience of illness she now embodied a deep sense of commitment to heal children.
Working with the power of life
When we lightly stroke the feet, hands and head along points which correspond to our time in the womb, we stimulate our cellular blueprint. This acts as a catalyst to our life force, as if the practitioner was the earth and the person receiving was the seed. The contact between the two allows an unfolding, and new growth can blossom. This may be new ways of behaving, greater confidence or self esteem or new creative potential coming through.
Children transform quickly
Unlike adults who often hold their patterns in place, children can transform very quickly. I have received ecstatic phone calls from parents sharing their experiences: kids who refused to speak suddenly expressing themselves, hernia resolving itself naturally, the end of being bullied at school. Children will often verbally express hidden patterns. In one session an 8 year old girl casually said that she was being touched up by a boy at school. This had gone on for over a year. What was hidden now came to light.
Life affirming principles
While metamorphic touch is a most natural and effortless form of touch, parents also find it enlightening to explore the life affirming ideas behind the work. We learn about the patterns that create the foundation of our life’s experience. We also look at the phases in the womb and how we are shaped by the tensions that arise during this formative time. We also go into the birth patterns and how our entry into the world shapes the way we take action later on.
Transformation for the whole family
When we learn this wonderful practice and start using it at home, it opens up the possibility of deep transformation for the family as a whole. Often the vulnerable member, the one who struggles the most and holds for the others (often referred to as the black sheep of the family) can grow out of that role.
Learning the technique
With love, Dominique
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.
