"Working" with metaphor therapy used to be such a huge mess but no more. We have this rule that we stay away from metaphor in Modern Energy - unless a client "offers it on a plate." Then we hop to it! When the client brings the metaphor, that's the indication that the problem needs to be resolved *at that level.* Simples.

Metaphor Therapy & Project Sanctuary
You can't do metaphor therapy of any kind without understanding the language of metaphor, and frankly, you can't understand the language of metaphor until and unless you have learned it properly - by DIRECT INTERACTION with the energy mind, or by immersion, in other words.
Much has been written about metaphor therapy, but the truth is that you can only understand any metaphor properly by stepping inside that world and acting upon it from within.
Just as you will never understand the nature of a frog or what a frog really is by killing it, then cutting it up and studying the dead pieces, metaphor cannot be understood by dissecting it and then talking about the bits that lie, lifeless AND WITHOUT MEANING, on the floor.
Metaphors are OWNED by the one person who experiences something and then talks about it; they are unique and have a context.
By playing within the worlds of Project Sanctuary, a TRUE understanding of metaphor arises, what it is, how it works, and how you can use metaphor in therapy to help other people heal - properly.
In that way, therapeutic metaphor becomes more than a crazy mind game and turns into probably the most powerful tool for mind healing and personal evolution we have ever known.
Project Sanctuary's Classic Game has been included in the Advanced Level EFT training program as the device of choice to help EFT practitioners work successfully with client presented metaphors, very highly charged memories, fragmented/repressed memories and "life problems" which would generate too many separate EFT set up statements.
This has been received extremely well by EFT students who are delighted with these powerful new additions to their tool box of techniques and has been described as "truly magical and entirely transformative."
Feeling unloved, sometimes? Do you wonder sometimes if you are at all lovable? Feeling lonely even inside a relationship? Misunderstood? Alone? Well, I think we can put an end to that. And a beginning to a completely different understanding of how and what love has been in your life, what really went on and how you could, if you wanted to, begin to think of yourself in a whole new way.
In February, I set a special Project Sanctuary game for the members of StarFields VIP - to become a pure energy healer in Pertineri and to treat 12 clients, provided for you by your own energy mind.
This is a challenging game because it involves 12 personal and unique stories of healing to be played wholeheartedly; each person who plays it will of course be sent the exact right clients to help that one unique person evolve. Here are my 12 stories of healing, courtesy of Project Sanctuary, which really is the greatest game on Earth.
There is no doubt in my mind that Soul Pilot work reaches the aspects that other healing methods don't reach, and that doing Soul Pilot work has profoundly positive effects on a person.
These include ...
Experiences in Sanctuary "count" as real life experiences and contribute to our global wisdom, making it possible to gain more experience in one lifetime than one single lifetime could possibly hold.
Here is an example about a therapist who couldn't sell themselves, a story about gypsy stones and how easy it is to make autogenic experiences and autogenic learnings a practical tool to help us master reality.
Fairy Tale Therapy is an extremely powerful way bring healing to systems which remain otherwise out of reach. But there is more to fairy tale therapy than that alone.
Putting someone in charge of *all their stories* - which includes heirloom stories, all forms of old wives tails, religious stories, what they see on TV and read in the newspaper, and also, their very own memories and imaginations as well as fairy tales - is probably THE single most powerful key to personal development we could give to a person.

People who know how to play Project Sanctuary well have a huge competitive advantage when it comes to psychology and counselling -
... but they are also aware just how one EVOLVES the metaphor or as we prefer to call it, THE STORY, so that a person may experience a threshold shift.
These are very valuable skills indeed under any circumstance, but especially so when it comes to Events Psychology memory enrichment, and of course, installation of "absent events" or missing events.
Here is a wonderful example and case story about a man who thought "My father hates me ..."
What happened when Nick meets therapist Sandy in his quest to fall out of love.
(Nick, 35, a former advertising executive, is experiencing emotional problems following the break up with his girlfriend Julia. He can't stop thinking about her and has begun a quest to discover 99 ways to fall out of love.
There is one thing that makes the difference between someone who "gets" Project Sanctuary, and someone who doesn't.
One particular event that determines whether we are dealing with just fantasy, or something very shamanic, very REAL indeed.
There is a moment of enlightenment that describes the entrance into the REAL Project Sanctuary realms, and that is the moment when a person sits up in shock and says, "But *I* did NOT do that!"
In the Guardian Angel Inner Child Healing meditation, we - as our present adult selves - will travel back in time/space and visit with the child aspect of us at the moment of highest disturbance - at the moment of the dark night of the soul.
It is true that Project Sanctuary is very *different* from all other approaches to contacting and working with the energy mind.
There are many structural differences, derived from the deep structure and the pre-suppositions of the cosmology that underlies Project Sanctuary; but at the top level one of the most striking difference to all existing theories on the human mind is that we do NOT make a distinction between waking thought, dream, fantasy, imagination, memory, false memory, vision, hallucination - in Project Sanctuary we apply just ONE SINGLE SET OF STRATEGIES to them all.
This has some fascinating repercussions ...
StarFields writes: Do you remember a time when you still believed in Father Christmas?
When the idea of a being that could deliver gifts to all the children of the world in a single night was the truth? Do you remember when you stopped believing?
Do you remember when you found out that the adults were lying, that it was a huge conspiracy against the children, and did a part of you become very sad, and very cynical at time? If so, there might be something that can be done to restore the faith in magic.
Here is my story.
Project Sanctuary gives us a fabulous format to explore and to change internal representations, or our personal realities, that hide out of view behind labels such as "falling in love".
"Falling in love"?
What DOES that mean? What does that mean TO YOU?
If you allow yourself to really step into it and become aware of what that *is* for you, what is it? I said mine was stepping off the edge of reason and literally falling into some huge pitch black endless stone well type of hole in the ground, out of control, screaming and flailing, and then landing bone-crunchingly at the bottom, amidst a pile of dry sculls and the dusty last remnants of other fools who had fallen into the same damn hole over the centuries!
Silvia Hartmann writes: Fairy tales have an inordinate effect on human beings. They are very specific stories, set in a "timeless" dimension and they act on the neurology in a very specific way.
"Embedded" when we are but children, and with their true messages quite hidden under the surface, fairy tales program a range of codes of conduct and behaviour specific to the societies that tell them to train their youngsters to grow up into good productive citizens.
Fairy tales are the carriers for deep programming, as are other types of stories which function on the same timeless "once upon a time in a faraway land" principle and this programming is not just resistant to being undone later on with conscious interventions and decisions and willpower, but is actually structurally out of reach from attempts of the adult mind to free itself from these entrainments. Simply put, to de-program a fairy tale, you need ANOTHER fairy tale. And nothing else will do.
Spirit guides - and credit cards?!
It is a fact that a lot of holistic folk just can't seem to keep their finances under control, or even earn any decent amounts of money in the first place. It is fascinating to muse how it is that the more "spiritual" people seem to become, the less money they are earning - and vice versa.
This cropped up again during a recent prosperity workshop with holistic volunteers of a charity - find out what happened, laugh and learn ...
This Project Sanctuary story is an example how to use PS to resolve dreams.
By resolving dreams, we mean that a conclusion or breakthrough on the topic from a dream is being reached, and a sense that this is now been moved along and to the next level.
This is a particular fascinating dream about a flood wave, and drowning in the water.
For serious Project Sanctuary Players, here's something very cool indeed - four guided journeys to different planes that are difficult to reach sometimes - The Far Journeys.
Go to Shamanic Overworld, do Soul Pilots work, very highly abstract logic work with Crystal Cathedral or advanced vision streaming with the Game In Space & Time.
At the end of the article is a link so you can listen to an excerpt.
The vampire myth, in its many different shapes and flavours, is a powerful and very exciting one, no matter which way you look at it.
Whether you are the timid virgin, quivering with a totally unknowable excitement as the beautiful immortal alien stranger descends upon you to give you a kiss of life like you've never had, or whether you prefer to be the vampire master, don the cloak of darkness yourself and look upon the tender quivering virgin from that particular vantage of delight, or even if ...
I've recently been working on a site related to "healing" and it was then I started to think about all the healing applications of Project Sanctuary, and what we should call PS style healing.
The closest match is really shamanic healing; that's the only thing which brings in the concept of travelling in other realities and interacting personally with the events and existences you find there. Here's an article I wrote about shamanic healing in the 21st century for an ezine recently, plus notes on The Sucking Doctor, and a Dream About Scissors.
Do you want to bring some past life concerns into Sanctuary but not sure how?
Do you have a sense of Past Lives but can't quite get to the details? Always wanted to do Past Life Regression but don't like the idea of hypnosis, or it you tried it with less than entirely amazing results?
Well here's the answer - past life regression without the hypnosis!
