Personal Time Line
The Healing Room at Heartspace
Module Thirteen - Two Hours
Making a Personal Time Line
Charting your own life experiences, the sequence of events, and the possible relationship of some events to other events can help you develop increased perspective and insight. The goal of this module is to increase self-understanding and self-compassion by having a detailed overview of how you came to be where you are today.
Additionally, issues and events can be identified for processing in your personal therapy.
It is best to take your time and schedule two separate hours for this module, due to the volume of material you will be touching upon. Use the skills you learned in earlier modules to pause and reorient, ground, and resource with meditations, yoga, etc.
Romantic and Intimate Relationships
Personal Milestones and Accomplishments
Failures and Disappointments
Significant Separations and Losses
Accidents and Illnesses

Journal About What You Discover
You may also want to bring along your own private journal for this purpose.
Take Your Time/Repeat
Providing feedback in the private group blog at www.healingroom.space will help us make modifications in estimated time, and improve the overall experience of using The Healing Room.
Alternating Bilateral Stimulation
ABS can be helpful in mindfully processing the material as it comes up in this module.
Remember, The Healing Room is set up with a stereo system that can provide audible Alternating Bilateral Stimulation (ABS) which is a component of EMDR therapy (Eye-Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing). The unique Alternating Bilateral Stimulation sample played continuously in The Healing Room is called Ocean Crossover and mimics ocean waves moving back and forth across the room at a gentle low volume in the background. It has a relaxing effect and supports the neural integration of new perspectives and healing of negatively charged memories, particularly when it is paired with specific tasks.
*Having the ABS playing at a volume loud enough to hear it, but low enough that it seems to fade into the background while you learn these skills, is optimal.
