Recently I did some energy work with the amazing Janna Sawyer. I don’t know what I was expecting, exactly, but what happened has left me with a lot to think about and consider. Janna is an EFT (tapping) practitioner, and the technique she used with me is called Matrix Reimprinting.

I have to admit that when I first heard about this technique I was a little skeptical. Janna explained that part of the process involves essentially traveling back in time and having a conversation with your younger self. As someone who is generally focused on the present and future I don’t spend a lot of time thinking about the past. I didn’t even know if I’d be able to remember enough details to have a successful session.

The reality is that the session was extremely emotional, powerful and effective. Despite Janna’s efforts to prepare me, I was not expecting the experience the waves of emotion, the anger, tears and release. It was an incredible experience and was one that produced a major energy shift for me. I felt it in the session and then, in the following days, felt the aftermath of what had happened. I was exhausted but in a way that felt as if I had been cleansed of something.

Now, as I’m moving through a new week I’ve remarked several times how free and light I feel and how great it’s been to let all that old baggage go. The interesting thing is, it’s baggage I didn’t know I was carrying, which kind of makes me wonder what else is lingering there, in my psyche?

My challenge to you is to consider what old energy, thoughts, beliefs and experiences you’ve been carrying around with you – perhaps for a lifetime. Now may be the perfect time to clear some of that away, and that simple action could make all the difference.
