Fibromyalgia, Chronic Pain, Myositis, Environmental Sensitivity, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome – A Matrix Energetics and Integrative Medicine / Therapy perspectiveJuly 13, 2010
Many labels and if you look thru the medical literature and treatment options one thing becomes clear. Doctors and health professionals don’t know what it is and sure don;t know how to make it go away.
I’m going to start with a success story from one of my former clients. I say former because I haven’t seen her in almost a year but she has sent me a few emails of what she noticed after our sessions. I treated her with Matrix Energetics 3 sessions, then 3 more which were mostly going over her home program.
|Below is the description I wrote up about my experience with you and
I’m excited about the changes in my life! THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!
Written November 16, 2009:
I have been a seeker of many types of transformation for as long as I
can remember. In August of 2009, I was getting ready for a trip to
Italy and was concerned because I had a number of physical conditions
that made traveling difficult. I wondered what to do and who to see.
My intuition told me to go see Ralph Havens P.T. I had been treated by
Ralph about 6 years prior and thought he may be able to help me again.
My concerns this time were:
• Back pain, especially when sitting for longer than ½ hour
(sometimes less). This was very pronounced when sitting in airplane
seats even on short flights and the trip to Italy would be 15 hours!
(was I out of my mind to consider it?)
• Pain in both shoulders: I was unable to carry anything over my
shoulders like a shoulder strap purse that weighed more than one pound.
• Groin pain when doing certain Yoga moves.
• Neck pain
I only had time for 3 appointments with Ralph before my trip. The first
was on August 31st 2009.
I wasn’t really convinced that just 3 treatments would do any good but I
decided to give it a try. On the first visit Ralph didn’t seem to be
doing much, just holding his hands on, over and around me in various
ways. However I had a sense of total trust that whatever the heck he
was doing, was a good thing, so I just relaxed and went with the flow.
I later found out he was doing Matrix Energetics.
At first, I just felt deeply relaxed and then, very unexpectedly, my
body began to move on its own. Wow! I knew something amazing was
happening. I didn’t know what and I didn’t care because I just knew and
trusted that it was a good thing.
On the way home, after the first treatment I felt euphoric. Everything
seemed different. I was happier, more at peace. The sky was intensely
beautiful. Something wonderful was occurring!
On the next few visits my body responded to the Matrix Energetics by
moving in some very dramatic ways. I just let it move where it
wanted….a strange but agreeable experience. Ralph said that some of the
things my body was doing were like advanced Qigong moves. I wouldn’t
know, as I’ve never taken Qigong. Also some movements occurred as if my
body were in a Chi machine. Cool!
The movements periodically continued outside of PT as well. It was
rather humorous to be watching TV and start moving spontaneously. My
husband didn’t know what to think!
After the 3 treatments, I was off to Italy. I made it on the 15 hour
flight without significant pain. Yes I still needed pain pills and my
TENS unit, but I MADE it! That may not sound like a miracle, but to me
it certainly was. The longest plane trip I had previously been on was
only 6 hours. Even with pain pills and TENS, I was in significant pain
in the past.
While in Italy, I was able to carry a small backpack filled with
groceries for about 45 min. Another miracle! I hadn’t been able to do
anything like that in years without significant shoulder, neck and/ or
I also had times of pure, intense joy, so lovely and unexpected that
tears came to my eyes. The joy did not have so much to do with anything
in particular that was going on, it was, rather, coming from a place
deep within me. I have suffered from depression for many years, so this
was an amazing gift. I’m tearing up with gratitude as I type this.
After returning from Italy, I scheduled more appointments with Ralph,
and we continued with the Matrix Energetics.
Here are some of the things I have noticed which I believe are related
to the sessions:
• My Yoga poses are easier and I feel more flexible.
• I have virtually no right shoulder pain.
• Orgasms that are more intense and pleasurable than ever before
in my life.
• I have many moments of profound joy. (more on this below)
• The ability to go with ‘what is’ …living, experiencing and
honoring the present moment.
• Less back pain while sitting
The lovely moments of joy that I began to notice in Italy have
continued, and occur more frequently. It can arise at anytime,
anyplace (even doing dishes!), because it’s coming from within me and
also from an interconnectedness that is beyond me. It’s not determined
by my circumstances.
For a long time I have known, intellectually, that all the things in my
life are there for a reason and should be honored. After the Matrix
Energetics with Ralph, however, I was able to know and experience this
on a deeper level. One day in particular comes to mind. I was on my
way over for a session with Ralph and I felt physically and emotionally
terrible. I am a sensitive person. What I mean by this is that I react
to many things in my environment in what can be considered a negative
way. Many foods, dust, chemicals, cigarettes, perfume etc. make me feel
physically or emotionally ill. On that day, I was reacting to something
and felt very depressed. I said to myself, “I wish I weren’t so
sensitive!” I immediately had an epiphany……….NO! my sensitivities are,
in part, what makes me who I am. I would not be who I am without them
and I love who I am! I instantly felt something flip in me and….. POOF
the depression etc. was gone. WOW!
Ralph had taught me something, on a previous session that helped with
this process. Which was something like: If one feels that something in
their life needs to be changed, then ask a question like: “How has this
been useful?” Let it drop to your heart. Then ask something like: “If
it were different, how would it look?” Drop that to your heart. Then
forget about it and let it go. This, along with the Matrix Energetics
in general allowed me to have that profound shift.
Do I think that Ralph or Matrix Energetics has totally caused these
changes? Yes and no. As I said, I have been a seeker of
transformation for many years. I see what I experience with Ralph and
Matrix Energetics to be a kind of key to a door of transformation. I
got to the doorway but was not quite able to step across the threshold.
What I struggled to achieve before, seemed to miraculously happen with
Matrix Energetics and Ralph Havens!
Here is a follow up email from the same client:
Happy New Year to you too!
Lots of changes over here. I’m now eating only raw organic vegan food
so that’s quite a switch. Also consuming super foods like blue green
algae. I’ve had times of abundant energy and mental clarity and times
of extreme fatigue and brain fog. As my oldest son, Brian, likes to
say………It’s all good!
I sat through most my acting class yesterday with very little back
discomfort (3 hour class) A miracle! My left shoulder is moving
easier with less discomfort……….a miracle! I’m not taking any
herbs or supplements for anxiety or depression because I don’t need
them……..first time in many many years…..a miracle! I’ve cleaned
out an entire drawer of many bottles of supplements that I don’t feel I
need anymore and made room for a gizmo that makes noodles out of
I’m not afraid of the future.
I’m reading the “busting loose from the money game” book. Parts I just
start laughing (in recognition of the truth) at because I’ve suspected
things like that for a long time. But I sense that I’m not ready to
read it all yet. I’m focusing on my health transformation. I’m reading
the “Sunfood diet success system” by David Wolfe. It’s about having
health with raw vegan food, but also about the spiritual, psychological
roll in vibrant health. I’m learning a lot.
My body continues to go into Matrix mode every day.
Things are shifting that I don’t know how to talk about yet.
Thanks for helping me make this shift.
How are you?
And just recently I received this email from the same client:
I hope this finds you well. Making plans for your wedding?
I have some wonderful news concerning my 85 year old mother, Doris, who lives in Denver.
She had been having pain in her back/ legs for a long time now, perhaps a year or so. It became quite severe about a month ago, mostly in her legs, and in the last few weeks was getting unbearable and she was using a walker for the first time in her life. She had tried a number of treatments, PT, Pilates, chiropractic, acupuncture, etc. The Dr. tried steroid injections.. all of no help. She finally was so bad that the Dr. recommended surgery which she readily agreed to……….a laminectomy and fusion. The MRI showed multiple causes for her issues.
I decided to fly out right away and help her. I got here Thursday afternoon, July 1st. It was hard to see my Mom in such a state. Without pain meds, she said the pain in her legs was a 10/10 and with narcotic pain meds, 8/10. Ralph, my Mom is a very tough lady and doesn’t usually complain about things even if I know she is in pain. She was also really confused because of the pain meds and needed to use a walker for the first time in her life.
Let me back up just a bit now. On the plane trip over here, I brought along the Matrix Energetics book which I’ve had for a long time but never read. Just reading the book, my body started to move on it’s own in the familiar chi type movements that you noticed when you were treating me. I decided to ask about this and wrote:
Dear God, please tell me about Matrix Energetics:
I got this message:
Dear being of the universe, there is immense pleasure in allowing what IS to manifest. You don’t need to try to conjure up anything new, just experience what is there. Become a beacon for all that is of the light. It is beyond anything that you can imagine. Let go and ask for what you wish. The force is there to assist in ways that are amazing and sparkling with Divine energy. The flow is in you now (more chi movements) Feel it, use it, enjoy it.
then I asked:
How can I use this to help Mom?
Love her where she is at. Don’t try and change her. Honor where she is at. No change is possible without first honoring the person/souls process. Be aware of helpers that come. She has many that can be available to allow her to be free. Allow her guides to guide you. Be open to the process. Leave judgment at the door.
Me: thank you.
So this is the space I came to Denver in. On Friday, July 2nd, we had a busy day with medical appointments and I later told Mom a bit about Matrix Energetics. I asked her if she was willing to let me try to do some work with her and she happily agreed. I just followed my intuition re. what to do for her……went with some of the things you taught me and some energy healing work I had done in the past. Mainly just went with the flow.
The next morning, she didn’t take her narcotic pain pill, only some ibuprofen. To my amazement, she went out into the yard with me where I was pulling weeds etc, and sat on a little stone wall and put compost around her plants. Later we were sitting on her porch and she looked over at me and said………..I don’t have any pain! What?!!!! Ralph it really was a miracle! She went 4 more hours with no pain at all and then later in the day it came back a bit but only a 4/10. She was walking around without her walker and even went downstairs to her basement to retrieve a folding chair to watch the fireworks! (well, OK, she was a day early, but that could happen to anyone.) lol
I can’t believe the change. I’ve never seen such a quick turn around in all of my life! Was is all do to the energy work? I don’t know for sure, but it seems to me that something miraculous happened and perhaps it’s not up to me to figure it out anyway.
We shall see what happens next!
Sending many blessings your way (for Jen too!)
So what did I do? And did I know what the cause of her condition was? How did she heal? Was it something I did? What is Matrix Energetics?
What I’ve noticed with my work as a Certified Matrix Energetics Practitioner is that I feel blessed to be a part of someone’s healing and transformation. With my Integrative Manual Therapy background I could let you know what I “saw” and what I “treated” but that would just be my Ego taking credit for something or trying to make sense of a Miracle.
I can tell you that we see Miracles daily in our practice. With Matrix Energetics we drop into the space where “it’s already done” where “miracles happen” and we let go and allow it to happen. But we also use our intent for specific outcomes by gathering power and activating it but at the same time Letting Go of any expectation or need for anything to happen. I know it sounds confusing but this is the world of Matrix Energetics and it has it’s explanation in Quantum Physics, SuperString Theory, Morphic Fields, Scalar Physics and spiritual traditions.
To describe it or explain it would be akin to explaining or describing Fire. You could get a PhD in Fire but you wouldn’t know squat about fire until you actually touched it; and in that instance you would not have any more questions about “what is fire”. You would Know It on a deeper level. This is the best way to understand Matrix Energetics – Experience it for yourself.
call or email me anything you like and I’ll do my best to answer questions for you. Also you could email me and I could send you a newsletter about Matrix Energetics. But please call us and we can set up a time for you to Experience Matrix Energetics!
