Let's start with a (not so) simple question:
What do you want?
STEP 1 : Think as hard as you want. Or don’t think at all. As the session begins, you will be guided to discover and put "what you want" into a sentence.
This sentence can be as long as you’d like. It can be word salad or it can be grammatically perfect. It can be symbols, a drawing – anything that pulls at you. There’s no right way, except your way. You can spend days preparing or make it up on the spot. You can believe that something important will happen or be convinced this is ridiculous. We are strong believers in skepticism. Be you. Feel you. Think you. There is no other you, but you.
There is no other you, but you.
STEP 2: An iD facilitator will invite you to pick three words from your sentence and then have you ask three people to represent each word, which we call "resonating."
Over 30 years of clinical work has proven that exploring three elements of what is meaningful for you in the sentence (or drawing, etc.) deepens the focus on who you are and what has been holding you back.
So, for example…
Once this is complete, everyone else will leave the screen and observe. You will repeat your sentence and let everyone know when you’re ready. Then the magic (the science - neurobiology, epigenetics, quantum mechanics) begins...
As the session unfolds, a second question will begin to emerge...
Who are you?
Often you will see aspects of yourself in the resonators. You may also see qualities of important people in your life, qualities which have been embedded in your neurobiology and biology, and which may have helped or hurt you as your identity developed.
And because resonating is essentially non-verbal, the session may at times focus on non-verbal experiences, i.e., from before you could walk, talk, or maybe later in life – experiences you’ve forgotten or felt weren’t important.
Incredibly, some experiences may be from your time in the womb, at birth, in early infancy, when you were especially vulnerable. Without knowing it, these experiences may well have impacted how you’ve behaved ever since, especially if they were traumatic.
How it all works.
You are a network of profoundly complex interacting systems including a nervous system, neural, ocular, bacterial, digestive, muscular, genetic, hormone, skeletal, cellular, blood and psychological systems, transmitting and receiving massive amounts of data (more complex than anything else on earth).
When confronted with trauma (big or small) your network brilliantly splits off and represses the negative aspects of any trauma. This way you can go on with your life. But as they say, “the body keeps score.”
Resonating picks up that “score,” senses the wounds and damage. Often resonators are able to tune into the details and age at which a trauma overwhelmed you with startling accuracy (which we suggest you confirm later, if possible, with relatives, etc.)
Uncovering what has wounded and held you back begins to set you free to adjust. It starts to reveal how brave and lovable you have been from the very beginning. And still are.
Step 3: Become what you want.
From our experience, this growing awareness of your truth and love begins to change everything that matters.
