Little girl spins away her stress, and receives a magical gift from her future self!
The following article was written by Sharon Riou, who is only 10-years old. Here is her story written in her own words…
Hey this is Sharon again, This time I want to talk to you about friends. Have you ever had a problem with your Friends? Have you ever realized that they are not really your friends??
Well I had a experience like that, I use to have a friend that I thought was the best friend ever, and then we got into a stressful situation and I realized that she was not a good friend and that she was just using me.
After that Every time I looked at her I felt like throwing-Up!!. Then my parents realized that I kept talking bad about her. So my parents decided to help me use the Dynamic Spin Release to take the bad vibe out of me.
First I was like “Thank God we are taking this out of my brain” and then I started feeling a lot of nervousness. During the process my parents ask me to think about the bad vibe and to notice where I felt it in my body and what it looked like, and it was something hard for me to describe, but then it turned out to be a shape that is similar to the cells in our body. I then realized that I was sitting hunched back, because I also felt the bad vibe in in my back!
After the spinning my parents ask me about the gift I received, and I was able to see myself in the future getting a scholarship for Law School. Later on I sent a message to Sharon in the Future telling her that “You are a smart Girl, no body is Smarter than you and you will be the best lawyer ever” and I started to cry like a baby and hugged my parents because I felt so grateful to take that feeling out of me, and now I do not have any hunchback and I am standing straight !!!
In conclusion I feel so Happy that all the bad feelings went away thanks to The Dynamic Spin Release.
Love !! Sharon.
What are these gifts Sharon received and where do they come from?
– A brief commentary by Kris Hallbom
When doing Dynamic Spin Release™, one of the several techniques that we have developed is to have the person identify an unpleasant feeling, image, or voice and place it several feet outside of them in the form of a 3-dimensional holographic image. In Sharon’s case, it was a really bad feeling that had to do with the falling out she had with her best friend. (1)
We then ask the person which way is the image turning. Whenever we ask someone this, they almost always say clockwise or counterclockwise. Rarely does anyone say that the image has “no spin” to it all.
We then ask the person to spin the image in the opposite direction of how they originally saw the image, and to spin the image so fast and hard that it explodes and disappears back into the universe. It’s as if a big giant vacuum comes in and sucks it up. And then a special “gift” will appear inside of the newly created empty space. The gift often serves as a powerful healing resource for the person doing the spinning, and has profound meaning for them. In Sharon’s case, the gift was an image of her future self going to Law School, which was a powerful gift for her because it made her feel really smart. Once the person gets the gift, we then have them bring the healing essence of it back into their heart or somewhere in their body. (2)
What are these gifts and where do they come from? In NLP terms they might be understood as coming from the unconscious mind of the client, and from a Jungian psychology perspective; they might be understood as metaphorical archetypes. Carl Jung put forward the idea of a Collective Unconscious to which all humans have access. He described this Collective Unconscious as a vast reservoir of archetypical images formed throughout the history and development of mankind. (3)
Although these archetypal images are common to humanity, the significance of a particular archetype to the individual person is specific: thus, the archetype can often appear as a healing symbol or metaphor such as a flower, a shining star, or a wise old sage– which is exactly what the person needs at that moment in their life. So now we ask people to look for these metaphorical archetypes as an intrinsic part of the Dynamic Spin Release™ process. (4) (5)
Over time, we have noticed a pattern to the types of metaphorical gifts the person’s receive, the color of the gifts, the shape of the gifts and the overall quality of the gifts. Usually the gift appears to be some kind of an archetypical metaphor that has special meaning to the client such as a diamond, a treasure box or a fairy princess. So now we ask people to look for these metaphorical gifts as an intrinsic part of the process.
We have developed several new techniques and/or variations of the aforementioned process. We’ve been having a lot of fun with this, and people seem to love doing it, especially children!
