How lct works
The basic premise of Life Centered Therapy is that all of our symptoms and the suffering associated with them are an invitation to become
the life experiences we have as yet been unable to handle.
Therapy is a process of learning how to master experiences that we were previously unable to integrate. When we can choose to remember experiences while witnessing and hosting them, we go from being the one who is unconsciously reliving experiences to being the one who is remembering them.
What do we mean by remembering? To remember is to bring into conscious awareness the relevant aspects of the story so that we use it to support our wellbeing rather than having it be an impediment to moving forward. When we come for healing we come to remember who we truly are in order to be whole.
Freedom is being in alignment with Life and creating Destiny, rather than living a life of being a victim of fate.
When we do this, ultimately either our symptoms simply go away, or our relationship to them changes to such a degree that they no longer create suffering. We can simply say yes to whatever Life presents us with equanimity, courage, and grace.
Foundational Healing Premises
All of our problems, mental, emotional, physical, relational, spiritual, and the suffering that accompanies them, are an invitation to remembering something we couldn’t handle
Once you can’t handle something, it creates an energetic template in our field that acts like a magnet, bringing similar situations to us until we’ve mastered what we could not handle in the first place
We can experience this template as physical discomfort
It follows that every discomfort is the exact equivalent of something that couldn’t be handled and everything that can’t be handled has a discomfort associated with it.
The discomfort is holding a memory from the perspective of who or what we were at the time the template was set, including all the feelings and meaning-making of the one who had the experience. We believe that the being who had that experience is present in the here and now and is revealed through the body sensations that are associated with whatever couldn’t be handled.
We receptively listen as the discomfort shares its story. We then find out if anything further needs to be done to release the template (often energetic interventions like acupressure techniques) and, if so, we do them, and the discomfort ought to dissipate.
When this happens, we expect one of two things to occur:
- We will find our difficulties have resolved or
- Our relationship to our difficulties will change to such degree that they won’t have any anxiety associated with them.
Sometimes our problems are just symptoms of deeper universal patterns such as...neglect, betrayal, grudges, craving, feeling cursed, limiting and protecting the self...Discovering and transforming these patterns can heal many limiting beliefs, inability to feel feelings, and boundary and physical issues simultaneously.
