Reference Point Therapy

Where does Reference Point Therapy come from?

  RPT was developed by Simon and Evette Rose. Their most important breakthrough was realising that you can spare yourself from many years of therapy and clear most of your trauma in one quick movement if you can trace the trauma back to the original reference point, or anchor, for that trauma. When you find that origin, the whole healing is instantaneous. Yes, years and years of therapy can be achieved in a micro-second. If you've experienced the trauma of counselling, regression, pulling negative beliefs, channelling energy or other slow (or painful) therapies, you will be amazed at just how

fast and easy this technique is. They named it Reference Point Therapy because it is about the finding and changing that original reference point. 

Techniques that have influenced them and contributed in some way great or small to the development of Reference Point Therapy include Neuro Linguistic Programming; Grant McFetridge's Peak States work;  the Hawaiian tradition of Ho'oponopono;  Soleria Green's work with Beingness and expanding consciousness.

In any aspect of your life where you are not being all you can be, Reference Point Therapy empowers you to create a life you love.  

What is Reference Point Therapy?
Reference Point Therapy is a powerful holistic healing technique that rapidly and effectively addresses the source of imbalances by acknowledging the source, or original cause of the problem. Everything from physical illness and pain, emotional imbalances such as anxiety, panic, and PTSD, to life issues such as financial or relationship problems, can be effectively addressed using this simple yet effective alternative healing technique.   

RPT Keystone Concepts
The keystone concept behind Reference Point Therapy is the belief that all imbalance - whether it be physical or emotional- is caused by trauma. A traumatic experience is an experience that has a lot of emotional energy associated with it and is generally of a negative nature.  

 Completing the Trauma Cycle
When you are unable to complete the “trauma cycle”—that is effectively release the emotional charge associated with the event-then the trauma becomes locked into your consciousness and your cellular memory. This in turn sets up a blueprint for future problems. Reference Point Therapy is a tool to gently unravel this emotional energy so that it can process out of your body and your consciousness. The effects of this work are quite astounding and chronic issues can be rapidly resolved.  

How you Experience an Event is Crucial
It is important to understand that the way you experience an event can influence the way you store the event within your consciousness. Your perceptions are a part of how emotional energy is either locked into the body or released through the natural completion of the trauma cycle. This is why not everyone will develop a problem from experiencing the same traumatic event. It is highly dependent on your genetic make-up and your perceptions and beliefs.

Why Belief Work Doesn't Always "Work"
While beliefs are part of the equation in how you experience events, it is vital to understand that according to Reference Point Therapy, simply changing your beliefs is not the most effective way to heal a disease or change a destructive behaviour pattern for a number of reasons.

The most important reason being that belief work alone does not address the traumatic emotional experiences that underlie the beliefs. The emotional content of the trauma is essentially the foundation for the creation our beliefs. So if you do not address the trauma, and the core tone or vibration underneath the trauma (more on this in a minute), then changing beliefs will at best be a temporary fix. 

The RPT Model of Trauma and Core Tone
Symptoms such as pain or illness, financial lack, relationship problems, are the way our mind make sense of the trauma. The story is the physical manifestation of the underlying emotional energetic pattern caused by the core tone or vibration related to the trauma.

The layer just under the story is akin to the energy body or aura. This includes acupuncture points, chakras, and the aura. The layer just under this is all of our beliefs which inform the above layers. The next layer under the beliefs is the emotions which propagate our beliefs. Holding the emotions in place is the trauma, the experience which created the feelings. And under the trauma lies the keystone core tone or vibration which is holding everything else in place.

    So How Does RPT Work?

 Finding the Reference Point

According to Reference Point Therapy, there is an originating "reference point", a point in time and space where the highly charged emotional experience occurred. During such events, when the trauma cycle is not completed, an association is made between the emotional experience safety, security, or survival.

  A cycle is then established whereby this negative emotion now has a positive gain or benefit to the individual such that the individual will begin to use emotions such as fear or grief because subconsciously they are holding associations to that emotion that help them to feel safe or secure or help to keep them alive in some way.  

 Goal of RPT: Finding the Core Tone
The goal of Reference Point Therapy is to assist the client in finding this reference point and the associations to safety, security and survival. This is done by guided imagery and mild regression until the client is able to access the core emotional tone or vibration associated with the traumatic event.

  Once the associations are found, the therapist and the client use a simple technique called “acknowledgement” to bring awareness of the associations back to the original “reference point” where they first occurred. In acknowledging the association, consciousness is brought into the negative emotional pattern and the trauma instantly unravels and releases from the body and mind.

   Once this is successful and the negative associations with the experience are elucidated, the first origin is acknowledged. This in fact is the instant healing and dramatic results can be seen from this simple technique alone.  

 First Reference Point and Trauma
According to the theory, this first origin of most traumas is usually believed to be during the conception stage of the fertilization of the egg and sperm. Sometimes it is found that the origin of the traumatic experiences occurred generations ago through the ancestral line. This too can be addressed easily with RPT.

This encoding of memories and experiences into the DNA is known in the scientific community as “genomic imprinting”. Epigenetics is an emerging field of the biological sciences that is now providing solid evidence which confirms that genomic imprinting has physiological and emotional effects seen generations later.

 The Triune Brain Model
Another keystone concept of RPT is the Triune Brain Model which was developed by Paul D. MacLean an American physician and neuroscientist. The triune brain model is a theoretical model of brain development which categorizes the human brain in to thee distinct parts with three distinct purposes.

  The first part is referred to as the reptilian brain or R-Complex and it consists of the basal ganglia structures in the brain which are responsible for basic fight, flight or freeze responses. This portion of our brain deals with issues of personal safety and survival.

  It deals with the needs of the self only, and is not concerned with the needs of others. In Reference Point Therapy, it is the R-brain that is referred to as the instinctual mind and is usually where we find the core tone or vibration and its associations to safety, security or survival.

  The second part of the triune brain is referred to as the mammalian brain or limbic system which includes structures such as the amygdala and hippocampus. This portion of our brain is associated with feelings and emotions and responds to images, sounds and smells.

  In RPT the mammalian brain is referred to as the heart mind, it is the seat of the emotions which are used to lead the client into the deeper, and simpler, layers of the R-complex where the core tone is usually held.

   The third part of the triune brain is the cerebral neocortex, or fore brain. This structure is unique to mammals and it is responsible for higher levels of thought, abstraction, planning and perception. In RPT this part of the brain is the head-mind, it is where we carry the stories and symptoms about what is going on. This is the mind we may begin with, but in RPT work we never stay with the story—the story in the head-mind is only useful to take the client into the deeper layers of emotion in order to access the core tone or vibration.  

What is the Core Tone or Vibration?  

The core tone or vibration in Reference Point Therapy is the deepest cause of trauma, negative emotions, beliefs, and symptoms. Like trauma, the core tone or vibration is pre-verbal, it is pure energy and may be difficult to name with a word. 

The core tone or vibration exists usually in the R-complex and has a negative association to safety, security or survival. This is the level we want to get to in the therapy and once the client is able to access it and find the association, it is easy to clear the original reference point and heal the issue. 

So in a basic Reference Point Therapy session the therapist works with the client to guide them through a gentle process so that they can access the core tone or vibration, find the associations to safety, security or survival in the R complex, and then rapidly clear them with the simple tool of acknowledgement. 

Safe, Gentle and Effective
The beauty of this work is that it is very safe and gentle and allows for the healing of trauma without the client having to re-live traumatic emotional experiences or re-tell their story again and again. The reference points can be accessed without this by having the client engage in guided imagery and cultivation of awareness of the body and feelings.
