Can’t Let It Go…
Certified Aroma Freedom Technique Practitioner, Instructor, & Coach
I thought what I was doing was healthy, because I was allowing myself to feel it. What I didn’t know was that I wasn’t allowing myself to feel it enough…often enough nor strong enough. Part of me felt like I had a right to be sad because our situation can be really tough (physically and emotionally). But I also knew that I didn’t like tearing up or getting choked up every single time I remembered those horrific moments. “I should be able to share our story and keep it together,” is what I told myself.
During the second week of my Aroma Freedom Technique (AFT) Practitioner Certification course, we learned about The Memory Resolution Technique (TMRT). It’s slightly different from AFT, in that instead of working on future goals, you focus on a memory, thought or image that continually surfaces and holds you back from being happy, fulfilled, satisfied, whatever it may be. To be honest, I was afraid to try it and go through the process. I wasn’t prepared to relive those memories that week and so I didn’t do the assignment and pushed it off. Until one day, I was “tricked” into doing it. A well-respected friend and colleague (Angie Taylor) was teaching a class and guided all attendees through the process. I didn’t know that’s what was on tap and felt like I got suckered into it. And I am so grateful she bamboozled me!
