A way to
Transformation therapy (referred to below as "TT") is a comprehensive liberation and healing therapy. Not primarily having the goal of making physical or psychological symptoms disappear, it addresses the core of all inharmonious conditions of human beings - conditions accompanied externally by illness and discomfort, mental stress, dissatisfaction or conflicts. The following words will explain both the essential intellectual foundations of this new form of therapy and outline its practical approach.
TT believes that every human is by nature a SPIRIT currently living in his/her physical
body on this earth and is, at this moment in time, undergoing important and, more specifically, emotional experiences. Every person has a free will, i.e., every soul chooses, in agreement with
other souls, for instance family members, to be represented in a bodily form. Each emotional experience means growth, or expansion, for the soul. Just as our entire universe is expanding at a
rapid pace, so has each soul the desire to expand, to become richer and to experience more comprehensively. In essence, this experience is the e-motion (in German: energy in motion). A soul is
the core of e-motions and emotions.
"The soul is the sum of all the emotional experiences ever made, in this and in all other life" (from: "Conversations with God"). TT therapists, however, do not impose this spiritual background on their clients.
It is these emotions especially with which most people have big problems. Almost everybody learns from childhood that if they show so-called negative emotions such as
fear, anger, hatred, envy, jealousy, they are rejected and judged. Thus, the child believes there is something wrong with him/her and even starts to reject all these emotions, trying to suppress and control them. At the same time, they start to inwardly condemn themselves for the worst. This (often unconscious) self-condemnation, which can increase to self-hatred, is experienced by the majority of people living in the Western World.
Untrue thoughts create suffering
Children, from the TT perspective, however, are not considered victims of "unfit"
parents (because every mother and father are themselves a wounded child), but as highly creative beings, who from early childhood make decisions that distinctly effect and form the reality of the
life they experience, including health, relationships and material shortages. These false ideas lead to the above mentioned emotions and constantly nourish these. These, in turn must be
suppressed, leading to a cycle of suffering. For most people, this leads, between the age of 35 and 45, to a crisis (illness, accident, loss or other), which puts them in a position to radically
question their previous thinking and behavior and to take a new path toward awareness, clarity, peace and freedom.
Everything has a
From the perspective of TT, everything on this earth and the biography of every person are not meaningless - everything has a meaning and justification, no matter what the individual thinks and feels. This meaning (or the "Pearl of Wisdom") is unlocked, once the events and people are seen from a completely different, namely higher standpoint. After all, no problem can be solved at the level at which it was created. The transformation therapist encourages and supports clients to willingly feel all the emotions which oppress them. This move marks a radical turning point in dealing with ones feelings. Previously, people ran away from them, turned around and wanted them – usually unsuccessfully – to be "gone away ".... It is not the adult who is afraid to let repressed emotions rise and to feel them, it is always the little child in him/her.
The client in a double role
The TT therapist, as an attentive "researcher", guides the client through a breathing and relaxation technique to
experience all body sensations, emotions and thoughts so that he/she becomes more and more perceptive and learns how to observe these experiences. In cooperation with the internal guidance of the
clients, the therapist then accompanies them back to their childhood, to the time in the womb or into a "different life". While returning, a client is in a position to live in the dual role of
the compassionate observer, and once again briefly relive the repressed painful emotions. At the same time, clients can recognize what their thoughts and decisions were at the beginning of their
life or even in another life, as "creators" of their former life’s reality.
This makes it easier for people to assume their responsibility for the things they create and to appreciate them. In this way, they get away from their (usually unconscious) victim-offender- way of thinking and are able to forgive both themselves and all other parties involved (especially their parents). The power of forgiveness plays an essential role in the transformation therapy. It specifically means the withdrawal of judgmental thinking, i.e. the error in thinking, and allows for the realization that all people at all times make an effort and that something like "error" exists only in distorted thinking. Apart from these regressions, TT includes a whole range of internal encounters and rituals, in which the client, among other things, liberates him/herself from deep entanglements with other people.
Practice has shown that in each session of 60 - 90 minutes a clearly perceptible energy change takes place on the part of the client, and often significant changes can be achieved in the condition of, and also in his/her relationship to partners, children, parents or other persons in ones life.
The five steps of the transformation
– according to P'taah – can here only briefly be summarized and outlined, as follows:
Take responsibility for all the things you create
Recognize your prejudices and take them back; open yourself to forgiveness
Feel the emotion in the affirmative
Realine your way of thinking about yourself, life and others.
