I had dealt with lactose intolerance for over 20 years. Working with Richard during our taping of the original ACE courses, we were able to go back in my timeline and discover that this digestive issue was attached to conflict with a sibling. Prior to sitting down with Richard, I had no idea which health issue I would speak to him about until the moment we began taping. I had made up my mind prior to doing this live demonstration on video of the process, that I would not get emotional.
Little did I know what my lactose issues would correspond with and of course, the process revealed the underlying shock. I will first say that between now and the time of this "shock" that the conflicts between myself and my sibling had dissipated and had been "put in the past". The process revealed that only dealing with the issue will actually put it in the past.
After going through the process, shedding some tears and returning back to real life, I decided to test the outcome by doing the worst thing I could imagine as a lactose intolerant suffer....I ate a nice big ice cream milkshake. For sure this would have landed me in the bathroom 20 minutes or so afterwards. To my surprise, hours later, still nothing. Not a grumble in my tummy, not an urge to use the bathroom....nothing. 12 hours went by, 24 hours came and went and nothing. I was thrilled!
The following month, after the live demo taping, while Richard was abroad doing a training, I began to suffer from swollen feet. It felt the same way it did when I was pregnant and my feet would swell beyond reasonable limits. As Richard was away, I had to cope with the issue, wondering - did it have something to do with healing my lactose issues? Was this the after effect? Was it part of the healing process?
This swelling lasted about 5 days and I could once again wear normal shoes. The following month the same thing occurred. I couldn't believe I had to go through this again and Richard was still away so I had to sort out the issue using the steps he used to form the ACE strategies.
I soon discovered the swelling in my feet occurred within an hour of my own children having a serious sibling rivalry moment. When their moods escalated towards each other, my feet would begin swelling. I tested it again the next time it occurred and sure enough - fat feet!
This rivalry was a trigger for the original conflict of sibling rivalry in my own life. Since the process had already allowed me to heal my lactose issues, it needed to find the next best body part to deal with related issues and that was my feet. Since I experienced toxaemia during my pregnancies and the issue was with my children, the "stress" decided my feet were the best place to cope with the issue. Once I recognized the conflict I was able to clear the issue that same day and have not had to deal with toxemia-like symptoms since.
I now use the ACE Strategies for any situation when I find myself sick or even before a health issue occurs to prevent whatever stress happens from taking its toll on my body. My kids use it too and come to me all the time to resolve any issues they might be going through and clear it, usually within minutes or hours of doing the steps. I have since gone on to complete the Level 1 ACE Program and am a Certified Level 1 Practitioner.
