This video has two follow up interviews on Deborah’s two “clean language metaphor”sessions with me. During the first session in 1995 Deborah’s Esophagitis, Spastic Colon (IBS), and Gastritis was healed. I wasn’t aware of her medical conditions at the time of the session.
In Deborah’s first session with me in 1995 we did her Imperative Self Analysis (ISA) and a metaphor intervention with “Clean Language”. Her Imperative Self map was the cause of her stress and her medical issues. When Deborah was a young girl, she lived on a fruit farm in south Texas. There was a highly charged emotional event around age five that created her Imperative Self. She had a metaphorical melon in her stomach that was moved outside of her body during the intervention. https://clintmatheny.com/what-is-the-imperative-self/
In the session four years later, Deborah worked on her PMS. Symptoms were nausea, severe headaches, and general body achiness. This is a four month followup.
The word meaning in a Clean Language therapy context, “ Metaphor” is a container of information. All of our emotional feelings are either metaphors or our younger selfs that are frozen in time.
Some examples of metaphors : “I have a dark cloud over my head, my head is spinning like a merry go round, I have a lump in my throat, I go blank all the time, I’m in a fog”. To get a better idea of metaphors, listen to the actual intervention in the previous post the client has both metaphors and has a younger self frozen in time.
This is a 7 minute video. Turn up the volume. Sorry for the noise on this 22 year old VHS video tape transfer.
