Can you "redo your past?"

Working on my own life, I'd inevitably come across wounds from the past in my personal history. I did have my share of hurts and traumas. What can I do with them? I wondered. I know I can change my future with new choices. But change my past? Boldly I say, "Yes, you can!"

Of all the approaches I've applied to myself as well as others, I consider this to be one of the most powerful for healing the bondages and wounds that bind us. I call this process "Redoing Your Past." I believe it works best for healing damaged memories and emotions in the context of sharing with another live human being.

Each one of us have all the resources we need available to heal and make the changes we want. The resources I'm speaking of lie within ourselves. The therapist's task is to make those resources accessible in situations where they are needed. The method "Redoing Your Past" which I've developed and adapted myself does just that.
