Epigenetics (part 3): Healing epigenetic trauma with the triune brain model

In recent articles on this blog we have looked at what epigenetics is about, and an example of epigenetics in practice (with diabetes).  Thanks to all of you who commented on the blog and separately wrote to me about your experiences, which reaffirmed my view about the epigenetic nature of inherited conditions.

My research indicates that almost all conditions have an epigenetic component.  That doesn’t mean there aren’t other factors, but healing the epigenetic component seems to be a “catch-all” that clears the other parts too.

In today’s blog we’ll look at healing epigenetics using the Level 1 triune brain technique which most of you already know. Tomorrow I’ll introduce new material with an updated Level 2 technique.  In Part 3 I’ll discuss healing the environment including: “Nutritional Genomics.”

1) Where do our problems come from?

To summarize previous articles, I believe that most conditions people have, emotional and physical (and indeed spiritual) are the product of 2 things: our ancestry (genetics + epigenetics) and our environment.  In this and the next blog articles we’ll look at healing the ancestry and environment.

2) The search for epigenetic trauma

As discussed in previous posts, an epigenetic condition like diabetes may be caused by something that happened to your grandparents. To get an instant and permanent healing you need to find the original trauma.

The best known technique to do this is a very simple form of self-hypnosis called “Time Line Therapy.”  Best known through NLP, it is an effective way to find the origin of the problem.  We used a version of this in our original version of Reference Point Therapy (early 2009).

So in answer to “how to find the epigenetic trauma?” the simplest answer would be regression therapies such as Time Line Therapy.

The “bad news” so to speak is that TLT is very slow and not all clients can actually regress back and find the trauma. Perhaps most importantly merely finding the trauma is no guarantee of clearing it – which is why you don’t hear about instant healings using NLP.

3) Short-cuts (taking the regression out of regression therapy)

In our strive to make RPT simpler, we realized that what really mattered was the acknowledgment of the origin, not actually knowing it.

Example: Think of the starvation and diabetes example from the videos I posted in Part 1.  Your client has diabetes and it relates to a period of feast or famine experienced by their grandparents.  If you knew that you could heal it.  But even without knowing it you can heal it just as well by knowing that there must have been a cause.

4) New methods: triune brain metaphor

I’ve explained the triune brain model on this blog before (click here to see the animated video) and also created animations to describe how coherence of the minds helps us heal (click here).

What I’d like to do now is to tie the triune brain method in with epigenetics.

The basis of our Level 1 technique is that in order to heal something instantly you need to acknowledge 2 things:

  • the underlying instinct holding the condition in place; and
  • its origin in the family line.

When we acknowledge that, we are essentially going back to the original trauma which “flipped” the epigenetic switch, and we are restoring it.

Since we no longer need to know exactly what happened and when, all that’s left is to know what survival instinct is holding the condition in place.  According to our triune brain model, this is usually held in the part of the brain known as the R-complex.

So the great news, is that it turns out to be quite simple.  As long as you can find the underlying survival instinct (which is what we teach on the Level 1 course), you can quite easily flip back the epigenetic switch and reverse most, if not all, epigenetic conditions.

A very simple example of this (not a physical healing) is the demo we posted on the blog some months back (click here).

Over the coming weeks I’ll be uploading more physical healing demonstrations so you can see it step by step. (I’m seeking permission from the students in the demos we recorded in class.

In tomorrow’s blog (Part 2) I’m going to introduce a different, much more direct approach to clearing epigenetic trauma.  It’s a different technique for different problems, I’m sure you’ll like it.

Stay tuned, and don’t forget to leave your comments and questions here.

  1. Just wanted to mention epigenetics is mentioned in an article in the october 4th issue of Time magazine. In the cover story. There is an excerpt on their website, search for ‘nine months’ and it should come up. Sorry about not putting a direct link but my connection is too slow right now.

    Yes it’s a great article, amazing how many different people have handed it to me! I found the link (click here).

    This one is the one.


    don’t know how to html that :P

    thanks Geir that’s awesome! It’s not about epigenetics at all, but about fetal origins. That’s what our Level 2 course is about – how the key developmental events in the womb shape our personality. thanks for sharing the article, I didn’t know this research had received such mainstream attention.

    Just to avoid confusion, epigenetics is about how the environment shapes the expression of our genes. Fetal origins is about how our experiences in the womb shape our development (in ways that are not necessarily genetic). There is an overlap between the 2 subjects, for instance fetal origins relating to the development of the eggs in utero in a baby girl – these are epigenetic origins as well.


  2. Looking forward to tomorrow:)


  3. Hi Simon.
    Thanks for great articles on this subject.
    You mention:
    “Since we no longer need to know exactly what happened and when, all that’s left is to know what survival instinct is holding the condition in place. ”

    I was wondering if it often will be enough also just to acknowledge that there is a connection to an survival instinct, without actually knowing it (as with the origin)? (if not works, as normal go into details for finding the specific connection).

    This article is pure BS. Epigenetic changes are changes to genes that turn them on or off. They are CHEMICAL changes. They have nothing to do with mental trauma AT ALL. You cannot “flip the switch” by doing anything mentally. To say anything else is a LIE.

    There are ways of changing epigenetic markers, it has been found that some cancers have an epigenetic origin, and that they can be treated with protiens found in axlotl oocytes (premature eggs of a type of pre-metamophasis salamander).

    Seriously, learn what you are talking about before trying to advise others.

    Hi Stephen

    You are welcome to comment on the blog and I have no issue with receiving skepticism and criticism. In this case though your criticism seems to be founded on science more than 10 years out of date.

    There are two separate issues here:

    1. The proof that trauma – and yes even mental trauma – causes epigenetic changes has been established for more than a decade. It’s easy to prove in rats. Whilst humans aren’t experimented on, the evidence of mental trauma from the holocaust and 9/11 proved that mental trauma causes chemical epigenetic changes.

    2. Where I am going out on a limb – and I acknowledge this – is that I believe that resolving trauma “restores” the epigenetic marker. This isn’t my idea, it’s been published for many years. I just happen to agree with it. Dawson Church has published books on this topic which were one of my sources for my work.

    > They have nothing to do with mental trauma AT ALL.

    You seem to be contesting the first (non-controversial) point as much as the second. If you’d even bothered to watch the video I linked to you would know that what you wrote isn’t true. The knowledge that the Nazi holocaust caused epigenetic changes is OLD news.

    You have every right to comment on this blog but in this case the science you use to justify your arrogant tone is out of date.

    > Seriously, learn what you are talking about before trying to advise others.

    Could not have put it better myself mate.

    Wishing you all the best in your research
