…This past winter I felt completely stuck in a situation that was growing increasingly difficult. I had been doing my inner work as best I could. But I was unable to get out of the situation I was in. In short, I was looking after my mother, in her mid-90s, with dementia and declining health.
Talking with Alice, I realized that I was stuck in old assumptions arising out of a trauma in my childhood where I learned to take care of everyone else. I took over where my mother at the time failed to support me and others.
In our sessions, Alice helped me see how I had repeated the pattern of caregiving based on the same assumptions through my marriages, raising children, and taking care of my father and then my mother. This time, feeling overwhelmed by the full-time responsibility for my mother’s complex care, I lost my balance, resulting in “caregiver burnout”.
Using EFT, she guided me through what she called “Matrix Reimprinting”. By the end of our sessions together, I was able to state firmly that I was done with the situation that I was in, even though I could not imagine a way out. Within 6 weeks a solution was presented to me; and the problem was completely resolved within another 5 weeks.
I now have my freedom to move on, not only from the situation, but also from the thinking that kept me repeating the past. Now I have the opportunity to get on with my own life, to develop my own passions, and to discover what truly inspires me.
