Mindfulness, Chakra Balancing & Emotional Release
The chakras are the main energy centers that coordinate with the major nerve bundles of the spine. They are used as a focus tool to help the client more effectively use mindfulness practices (body scan, breath work, cognitive therapy) to bring the body and mind into a state of relaxation and homeostasis. This work is key in healing issues retained in generational lines through morphich resonance. The science of epingenetics is confirming these theories. Mindfulness practices are helping heal and strengthen clients from all walks of life.

The U.S. Surgeon General, Vivek Murthy, cited Visitacion Valley middle school in San Fransisco as a prime example of how mindfulness and meditation can positively affect school performance.
In 2007 a twice-daily mindfulness practice was instituted in Visitacion Valley. Since then, low test scores and high suspension rates have become history and the middle school can boast with improving grades and test scores, reduced suspension rates and one of the highest students self-reported happiness scores in the city.
The school’s physical education teacher had this to say about the effect of a mindfulness program, “Students seemed happy,” says Barry O’Driscoll. “They worked harder, paid more attention, were easier to teach and the number of fights fell dramatically.
“It’s provided a lot of stability to our school, helping staff and kids get through the stress they have in their lives.”
Alterations in brain and immune function produced by mindfulness meditation.The US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health reported on a study that concluded “These findings demonstrate that a short program in mindfulness meditation produces demonstrable effects on brain and immune function. These findings suggest that meditation may change brain and immune function in positive ways”. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12883106?dopt=Abstract)
Effectiveness of cognitive/relaxation therapy in reducing anxiety and improving the academic performance of test-anxious students.The American Psychological Association reported on a study that showed a combination of relaxation/cognitive therapy and study-skills training both reduced anxiety and improved performance significantly more that study alone.

Improvement in Cognitive Function
“In a randomized controlled investigation, we examined whether a two-week mindfulness-training course would decrease mind wandering and improve cognitive performance. Mindfulness training improved both GRE reading-comprehension scores and working memory capacity while simultaneously reducing the occurrence of distracting thoughts during completion of the GRE and the measure of working memory… Our results suggest that cultivating mindfulness is an effective and efficient technique for improving cognitive function, with wide-reaching consequences.” (https://www.td.org/Publications/Blogs/Science-of-Learning-Blog/2016/03/Evidence-for-Mindfulness)
While this therapy is largely numinous, Beverly strives to work within each client's belief system. The client remains fully clothed while the therapist brings focus to the seven main chakras that correspond to the seven major nerve bundles located along the spine. Focus of thought to the chakras quickly facilitates a theta brain state where the core building blocks of belief can be re-directed along neuropathways. This allows the client to expose and release negative thought patterns without needing to relive traumatic events. This, in turn, has a positive effect on corresponding body organs and systems, as scientifically proven (see National Institute of Health report above). Basic balancing is relaxing and meditative, leaving the client calm and clear-headed.
Emotional Release (E.R.T.)
E.R.T. is often combined with chakra balancing, allowing the client to explore core issues, on their own terms, that trap them in non-productive patterns. Clients enjoy an alpha or theta state through relaxation techniques. Guided imagery is then used to connect with the issues the client wishes to explore. The practitioner then facilitates release of energy blocks and suppressed emotions by helping the client create mindful affirmations and more positive thought processes. Reliving negative experiences, or hashing out uncomfortable details, is not necessary for positive change to occur. Mindfulness practices through Chakra Balancing, coupled with E.R.T., is an effective tool for P.T.S.D., depression, anxiety, addictions, autism, and more. The following Meridian Magazine article explains why Chakra Balancing and E.R.T. are so effective.
"Drawing on this new understanding of how our brains work, scientists and practitioners have learned how to use neuroplastic therapies to address many common conditions and to offer hope where prospects for healing were long denied. Some methods of improving the brain’s performance and health are simple approaches anyone can use.
Neurostimulation is one stage of neuroplastic healing. Light, sound, electricity, vibration, movement– and even thought– provide neurostimulation. Neurostimulation helps revive dormant circuits in the hurt brain and leads to a second phase in the healing process – an improved ability of the “noisy brain” to regulate and modulate and reach homeostasis. “Everyday thought, especially when used systematically, is a potent way to stimulate neurons.”
“When we think particular thoughts, certain networks in the brain are ‘turned on’ while others are switched off. Once a relevant circuit is turned on by thought, it fires and then blood flows to that circuit (a process that can be seen on brain scans that monitor blood flow in the brain) to replenish its energy supply.” (Faith to Heal the Brain-By Paul Baker · March 4, 2015)
