The Time Line can be seen as a model (or a simulation) of how our mind works. It is a representation of our memories and significant emotional events along a line of time from the past, through now, to the future. Since it’s introduction, there has been a rapid uptake of the process by people involved in personal change or personal development, due to the speed and effectiveness with which the process deals with unwarranted negative emotions, limiting decisions and beliefs, anxiety and phobia. The process is also excellent for enabling us to set and achieve our goals.

Time Line Therapy™ has proven to be a powerful and very quick way to enable people to revisit sometimes painful and dramatic experiences without having to re-live the emotions or negative content of those events.

This re-coding can have profound change effects upon our internal filters, connecting resources to achieve more positive behaviour and therefore results.

Voice Bio™ (S) Category C  

Fueled by electro-magnetic energy and organized according to a unique DNA blueprint, the various organs, glands and systems of the human body are meant to function independently, yet as a whole. The heart, lungs, pancreas and nervous system all have specialized jobs requiring specialized resources. However, to maintain health, all systems and organs must be in constant communication and interacting equitably. If communication breaks down, or if excessive or prolonged stress is placed on one system or organ, an imbalance can develop, first presenting warning symptoms and then more severe challenges.

The various parts of the body attract resources and communicate with each other by way of sound frequency. In other words, each organ has its own keynote frequency that resonates to the particular nutrients, minerals and sound vibration required for function. As an example, the colon vibrates to the note of B, while the liver vibrates to the note of G. Fortunately, for our sanity, the frequencies of our organs and systems function outside the range of human hearing.

The keynote frequencies found in the body are the very same frequencies found in music. And just as the note of C appears several times on a piano keyboard at varying octaves, the note of C appears many times in the body. The voice, being the composite sound of the human being, is representative of all of the frequencies in the body

This essentially uses sound to treat area’s of the body.
