Changing Our Thinking we Can Change Our World (Rev. Florence Becker)
My work is concerned with personal transformation and change through
workshops, one-to-one-counselling and lectures. By supporting transformation
I help facilitate the aquisition of deep knowledge towards higher
conciousness. This is achieved by working on beliefs and emotions, which affect
both the mind and
Section 1: TRANSFORMATIONAL WORKSHOPS
My workshops help clients to break free from deeply conditioned and predictable
responses, in order to achieve true potential.
Who can I help?
Anyone and everyone. Man, woman or child. It is never to early or too
late to break old habits that contribute to unhappiness and stalemate
than joy and progress.
Any individual who is committed to clearing psychological blocks
to maximise their talents, or seeks to clear unproductive or negative
behavioural patterns in order to live and act conciously, will benefit.
I draw upon any number of techniques, depending on the situation and need
as it arises. The approach is above all personal, creative, revealing and
While no session is ever the same, techniques may include a
discussion of personal history (focussing on upbringing, family roles,
formative experiences and significant relationships), together with
current perspectives and perceptions.
Various exercises assist in identifying and recognising recurring
behavioural patterns, which are blocking in effect. Clients can access
repressed emotions through deep breathing release work.
We can experience heightened awareness of inner emotions and bodily
manifestations. Our true self can observe habitual responses with
detachment, conciously and intentionally, so opening doors to different
choices. Different choices means different paths in life, leading to
progress, happiness, abundance, and the courage to pursue one's own
Coming out of being in reaction to past pain allows for genuine
transformation and change. My work helps us move into creative action.
It calls a halt to carrying the past into the future. It stops self sabotage
and allows our essence to move forward in a positive way.
Section 2: TRANSFORMATIONAL WORK
We are made of energy. Transformation means transforming our rate of
vibration to a higher frequency.
Our habitual reactions are a product of our past conditionings, beliefs and fears.
They have become so automatic that our response
to anything that touches them becomes uncontrollable and upredictable. Then the
mind reacts to a situation according to our programmed beliefs. We are offended,
we withdraw, become violent, miserable and unpredictable.
Being slaves to our own programmed feelings is the pathetic condition of all
humanity. We are not only accustomed to being in this state of slavery, but we
are accustomed to justifying it when we are touchy, moody, aggressive, and so
on. How much of our conversation is kept in motion by this slavish condition?
How many of our choices, and our actions? We are trained from Day One in all
our mental, emotional and
physical processes to react unconciously, as opposed to acting conciously.
This automatic functioning destroys freshness, spontaneity, creativity, the pure
joy of being alive. We cannot have the same belief systems and expect to change.
We cannot use the same measuring stick to get a different result.
We may be good at our profession, yet very easily disturbed, ruffled, distressed,
or insulted. What does this mean? It means our emotions are totally without freedom.
We are a slave to our emotions. Our program can only do what it is programmed
to do: drain life force.
As a result we become de-pressed, dis-eased, exhausted, fear ful and/or bored
with life. This stops us seeing our potential and the purpose of being in this
world. So it stops transformation. We must clear destructive killing energies
Knowing and Being are totally different worlds. If we do not deal with
our automatic responses to life, our true self will remain retarded.
That is why the human race is in danger of annihilation and extinction.
The mind can be manipulated into any belief that feeds its fears. Negativity
is stored in the body in the same way as pollutants. Ignoring them and thinking
positively does not last long and does not release dense vibrations. (We ARE
made of energy.) We will project them as our shadow side and attract the same
experiences. The more we clear, the more we can be in objective observation of
ourselves, which in turn weakens our programming. Then we can make different
based on the truth of who we are, and not controlled by automatic responses to
My work is concerned with helping us claim our natural birthright and live
the truth of ourselves. I can help us to enter another dimension of consciousness
where dense energies such as feeling victimised, lacking in confidence and using
aggression no longer rule your life. Becoming fully conscious allows a higher
frequency to emerge, presenting possibilities that can guide us
away from destruction towards transformation.
Yes, by changing our thinking we can change our world.
The enneagram is an ancient system showing us a map of our personality.
The personality is a mechanism, a way of dealing with life that we
learn in childhood. It is this predictable response to life that
repeating patterns and finding ourselves in similar situations
over and over again throughout our lives.
For example, you may find yourself in a repeated number of
abusive relationships. Or you find yourself blocked or locked in a repetitive
non-productive work situation.
We sabotage our future with our past pains and out-of-date
beliefs. All the great sages of all times say we are much greater than
The enneagram shows us our automatic unconscious programmed
responses to life that keep producing the same results.It helps
disengage from automatic behavior and so enables us to go deeper
within.It is a moving force from fixation to potent possibilies.
By clearly seeing and understanding our patterns we become
free to choose. Knowing ourselves more deeply connects us with a new
who we truly are. In grasping the purpose of our existence, we are
develop and expand not only our own conciousness, but human consciousness
at large. The greatest happiness is to know the source of our unhappiness
Don't Forget the Children of the Beslan School Takeover!
Recall that on Wednesday, September 1, 2004, a group of men and women
armed with assault rifles and grenade launchers seized school No.1
in the town of Beslan in North Ossetia, an internal republic that borders
Chechnya and Georgias separatist region of South Ossetia. The attackers
forced the children and teachers inside the school and announced that
they were being held hostage. As you know, the grimmest of news
followed this takeover.
Take a minute to think about the horrific takeover that happened in Beslan:
A 5-year old girl was crying for her mother. She
was told to be quiet or she would be shot, but naturally she continued
to cry, probably
not even understanding what to be shot actually meant. The man
pointed his gun at her. This is when the little boy telling the
story put his head down, heard the gun shot, and the crying stopped.
He couldn`t lift his head for the rest of the day. He was frozen
Young girls were raped, their throats cut,†thrown out of the windows.
After this horrid experience, many of the children still don`t remember
own names These are children just like any, who came to school
excited that day, dressed up in their pretties clothes for the first
day back at school celebrations.
Most people have children, or grandchildren,
nieces, nephews, etc. And
the children of Beslan in North Ossetia were just the same up until this
day. These children were innocent, vulnerable, and completely
dependent on adults for protection. Their world has been turned
upside down. The little ones that survived and can still talk
are asking, Why do they hate us? Why do they want to kill us? What
did we do wrong? How does one begin to give them answers?
Their no children on the streets in Beslan. There is a funeral nearly
The Ossetian Trauma Relief Project:
Trauma overloads the system. It distorts
reality and deforms natural emotional and psychological growth. Children
are 1,000 times more sensitive than adults as they store sensory experience
as memory. What
will be the future of those who lived through this massacre? Look
into the eyes of a child near you and imagine how they would handle being
in that same terrifying situation. The children and families of
Beslan are entitled to psychological support and therapy that can help
them to start recovering from the trauma of this ordeal.
Of course, the Beslan people will never forget
this tragedy and will mourn for years to come but will people elsewhere
remember the victims
of this attack? Let`s do something immediate to send our love
and support to this area, and give their children a chance at a bright
future just like other children. Immediately offering trauma
recovery therapy is key to this.
