how theta work creates permanent change...
But how? You may well ask. Simply put, we have receptor cells all over our bodies. They each have a specific vibration. We also have neuropeptides running through our bodies. (Scientists used to believe neuropeptides were mainly in our brains, but in the past couple of decades researchers such as Dr. Candace Pert have proven that these important little information carriers are found nearly everywhere in our bodies. This gives scientific basis to the concepts of body intelligence and cell memory.) Each neuropeptide has a specific vibration, just like the receptor cells each have a certain vibration.
When a neuropeptide meets a receptor cell that vibrates at its same frequency, the two connect; the neuropeptide is allowed into that cell rather than passing it by. One way to change the pattern of neuropeptide flow in our minds and bodies, then, is to change the vibration of the receptor cells.
This is what Theta does: it changes the vibration of the receptor cells. The vibration is, of course, energy. Quantum physics tells us that everything in the universe, including our bodies, is made up of energy. The factors mentioned above that can change the environment of our cells – medicine, nutrition, stress, emotions – each have their specific energy.
We are not solid beings whose parts run like the parts of a clock, as we use to imagine ourselves in the days of old science. We are part of the quantum age! Therefore it is not a huge leap to understand that since we are made up of energy – vibrating cells, over 50 trillion of them – then we can use energy to change ourselves. This is what mind/body medicine does.
What actually happens during a Theta Healing session?
So now we know that Theta Healing is based on the science of epigenetics and quantum physics. It also relies on the technique of kinesiology, or muscle response testing. During a session, the practitioner pinpoints the core structures that need to be changed by going into a theta brainwave.
Theta is a very slow wave, the same brainwave you would go into during a very deep meditation, but Theta Healers go into and out of it very quickly. In the theta state, the practitioner can communicate with Source and with the client. Using this theta brainwave, we ascertain exactly what areas need change.
The client then works with the practitioner by unearthing any negative beliefs and giving permission every step of the way for the practitioner to re-pattern the cells that need to change in order to result in healing. In order to circumvent the conscious mind and immediately access the unconscious, the practitioner uses kinesiology by lightly pulling at the client’s finger and thumb to get either a strong or weak response, which is the body’s way of saying “yes” or “no.” This way we are not using guesswork or even logic to get at the root of the problem: we are actually asking the client’s body, the cells, to show us the way. We then go directly to Source – not the energy of the practitioner – to transform the structures and patterns that need to change.
The fact that everything in a Theta session is done by connecting to Source is the reason Theta is so effective. This method does not rely on the faith of the client, the wisdom of the practitioner, or the interaction of any herb, sound, or other substance. It relies completely upon Source, the loving energy of the Divine that runs throughout the universe, to transform the structures the client needs to heal.
Clients report that even if they came into their Theta sessions full of doubt or anxiety about mind/body techniques, their experience during the session was a combination of warmth, compassion, humor and catharsis. Most also report feeling lighter and more joyful immediately after their session for several days. Of course the ultimate goal is long-lasting and real change, and the majority of clients report this as well.
From this simple technique of Theta Healing, many beautiful physical and emotional healings have come about. Theta Healing does not take the place of medical advice. Theta actually works well hand in hand with Western medicine and psychotherapy.
