whole-Self psychology, philosophy and education
The basic concept of this school of thought is the Whole-Self. This is a concept that represents and encompasses all dimensions of the Self, hence, it includes:
The physical or somatic Self
The mental or cognitive Self
The emotional or affective Self
The spiritual or intuitive Self
By connecting to the Whole-Self, access can be gained to any and every experience ever had, in any time, way and space.
It is importnat to understand the difference between most other therapeutic approaches and systems and the Whole-Self approach.
Most therapeutic systems work with the personality of the patient, assuming that the problem or the pathology is lodged in the personality and that it is the result of events which occurred during the patient’s life from birth on. The Whole-Self approach considers this assumption incorrect and believes that the pathology is not in the personality, but that it derives from a non-conscious sense of lack of power expressed through the personality. The stronger the personality, the more talented and skilled it is in keeping the cause of a pathology hidden or disguised. This is why most therapies fail.
When a pathology creating event occurs, our personality enters an hypnotic trance regarding that specific event and from that moment on, for the rset of one’s life, unless therapeutically resolved, it acts as though that traumatizing event is still happening:
- In the physical dimension – through cellular memory
- In the mental dimension – through beliefs
- In the emotional dimension- through reactive trauma trances
- In the spiritual or intuitive dimension – through the Whole-Self
Specific non conscious defence mechanisms of the Ego avoid recollection of any painful causative event, but when we consciously or non-consciously resist our feelings, we trigger non conscious needs to experience whatever feelings we are opposing. When we resist unpleasent or painful feelings, on a conscious or non-conscious level, we make diminishing judgments against ourselves, not against others and whatever we really believe about ourselves, our self-judgments, will shall keep proving to ourselves through our life choices and experiences. When we consciously or non-consciously resist our feelings and consciously or non-consciously make judgments against ourselves, we also consciously or non-consciously make diminishing decisions, which, de facto, determine or create our future.
In the desire to resolve any kind of problem or difficulty, we yearn for the happy-end and do all we can to find it, but at the same time, there is a strong urge to confirm what we really believe about ourselves and we shall find ourselves repeating over and over again more all less the same emotional, cognitive and behavioural patterns until we find a way to master the problem.
In Eastern philosophies this is known as ‘Karma’, in psychoanalysis, it is called ‘compulsive repetition ’.
WHOLE-SELF RELAXATION EXERCISE© (W-S RE©)
A brief exercise in guided imagination that promotes a state of consciousness which facilitates a direct and vital contact with our personal inner intuitive wisdom – our Whole-Self. A genuine non-invasive, sensitive and effective therapeutic instrument in an extremely pleasent and profound state of relaxation.
WHOLE-SELF PRENATAL MATRIX ANALYSIS© (W-S PAM©)
Discovery, analysis and processing of significant experiences during the prebirth period of our life and their lifetime influences as keys to health and wholeness. The analysis of the structure of the deep emotional and cognitive patterns and values during the nine months of gestation disclose the roots of our emotions, our beliefs, our attitudes and our behaviours and, through these, the lessons we need to learn to live a more balanced life, to grow, develop, mature and evolve. This is the discovery of our Emotional DNA© or EDNA©!
WHOLE-SELF QUADRIDIMENSIONAL BALANCE (W-S QB©)
This is an extremely simple and pleasant tool, anchored in Behavioural Psychology, which helps change or transform conscious and non-conscious diminishing models, beliefs, attitudes and behaviours.
N.B. This tool needs to be exercised for a minimum of 21 consecutive days, but change begins already after the first few days.
WHOLE-SELF RELEASING EXERCISE© (W-SR©)
The aim of Whole-Self Psychology therapy is the discovery and release of the conditioning effects of feelings and beliefs on our life, of diminishing conscious and non-conscious experiences and memories stored in our physical, mental, emotional and/or spiritual dimensions from conception on. This release helps destroy the pain bond that has kept us living in a trance-like state of subjective reality and integrates the physical, the mental, the emotional and the spiritual dimensions of the Self, aligning our diminishing subjective reality with neutral or even enhancing objective truth.
N.B. A tool that allows the discovery and release of cellular memories of conscious and non-conscious experiences, expressed through psychosomatic symptoms and pathologies.
WHOLE-SELF MULTIDIMENSIONAL ECHOES OF MEMORY© (W-S MDEM©)
This is a regressive, imaginative, transpersonal and multidimensional therapy, that investigates various dimensions of consciousness, in the deep and remote spaces of our memory and of our non-conscious beliefs regarding ourselves, others, the world, life. This tool allows us to enter those dimensions of consciousness that store useful symbolic information for the understanding of feelings, models, problems and pathologies we wish to investigate and resolve, as well as for the discovery of the archetypal non-conscious images at the roots of our past choices and for a profound, conscious and enhancing transformation of our self-image and self-awareness.
N.B. Our non-conscious image of ourselves is the expression of our deep non-conscious beliefs about ourselves, others, the world, life and, therefore, it determines our choices and our life experiences – what we can call, our DESTINY.
WHOLE-SELF MULTIDIMENSIOINAL PROJECTIONS OF MEMORY
This Whole-Self exercise is a regressive, imaginative, transpersonal and multidimensional experience that, through the use of archetypal images at the basis of our psyche, helps us discover possible future developments of our present day choices, and, so, helps us to opt for those choices that reflect more appropriately our true nature and needs.
N.B. Based on the consideration that the Whole-Self is an omni comprehensive totality of the individual and, therefore, has total and full knowledge of the individual’s psycho-physical structure, in a state of deep relaxation and attunement with the Whole-Self, this tool allows mental projections into possible future life experiences, in order to check possible results of choices made in the present.
WHOLE-SELF DEATH & BEREAVEMENT© (W-S D&B©)
The process of Whole-Self bereavement release consists in building a new structure of meaning, that is, in finding a new sense in the reorganization of the experience of loss. Since relationships are fundamental in giving meaning to life, the process of bereavement means recovering and strengthening the authentic meaning of what has been lost by discovering the profound value of the relationship, so as to reformulate it and give it the just value in the past, present and future. This is a quick, delicate and loving tool, which helps resolve emotional patterns of loss, pain, sadness, depression, separation, loneliness, isolation, rejection, abandonment, unhappiness, due to any type of death, end, separation or betrayal, that has already happened, is happening or is about to happen.
N.B. This Whole-Self Death & Bereavement exercise is a very delicate, fast and compassionate method that can be used also with phobias, people who are seriously ill or, even, in coma.
WHOLE-SELF RESILIENCE CAPACITY© (W-S RC©)
In times of difficulty or doubt, the Whole-Self discovery of our strong points helps us scale the mountain and overcome our obstacles and embrace our power and capacity of resilience.
N.B. Through an imaginative transpersonal regression from the present to a future life dimension, we gain awareness of the most significant moments of our life, of the most significant experiences and lessons, given and received during the course of our life, which are our cognitive and emotional wealth and constitute the foundation of our resilience.
WHOLE-SELF DISCOVERY STEPS© (W-S DS©)
This Whole-Self tool helps us unlock and release psychological fixations (mental and emotional) through the recovery, the analysis and the release of traumatic or conditioning life experiences.
NB. Through a vigil and non-hypnotic regression we are led back to the very first time when a behavioural, mental or emotional pattern was impressed in our consciousness, creating, from then on, a non-conscious belief that the event correlated to this pattern is still happening. By bringing these events to light, we am freed from this belief and from the trance state, which had entrapped us since the events had really occurred. This allows us to start living a life that is more in line with our true nature and needs.
