I just had an amazing insight, to do with the nature of held patterns.
There seems to be this sense (as I've understood it), that things have to be replaced from outside. In the sense of 'putting more energy' into a depleted energetic situation.
But the patterns of dejection (of holding something down) *have* to be within that person's fields themselves. It's not external. The problem (and the subsequent solution) is always there, present.
There's nothing EXTERNAL, in other words.
It just has to be rephrased, reparsed, re-narrated so that it can 'fit in' once more.
