For Gillespie Approach practitioners, I had a very interesting visit with the young boy from the October 4, 2018, post connecting his lower body issues to his strabismus. Our job is to be their guide to help them remember their old traumas stored in the craniosacral fascial system, most importantly, the ones at birth.
While I was following his right hip/lower back craniosacral fascial strain in therapy, he suddenly cried out that his affected eye started to burn for no apparent reason. It was like God showing me that if I had the slightest doubt in my mind about our connecting the dots approach in space and time, this would dispel it. His mother was startled and confused, and I stopped therapy for about ten minutes for him to clear his tears.
For over fifteen years I have seen this phenomenon with many brain-injured children at The Family Hope Center. The Gillespie Approach would help take the child back to the precise moment of injury. It was never pretty, and the parents reacted in horror. But after explaining the situation, they understood that it was a critical piece of their child’s healing.
I had explained to this mom on previous visits that everything in the body was connected in space and time. I reminded her that his old birth trauma(s), manifesting through this craniosacral fascial strain pattern, was most likely the cause of his eye reaction.
It can be a philosophical stretch for parents new to our work because no one else in the medical field will confirm that explanation. In the Gillespie Approach the body knows best how to heal itself. We just listen and trust the process.
Our most important goal is to revisit these old birth trauma(s) hidden deep in the space/time continuum for authentic healing. In my perfect world they would be cleared at birth to prevent needless suffering.
