Path to Seemorg Matrix Work™
came to Seemorg Matrix Work™ as a therapist, but also as a person who desired
an end to old suffering, who wanted to feel solid, joyous and free.
I attended my first energy psychotherapy training on a colleague’s
recommendation. I saw that
“sadder but wiser” could become ecstatic, peaceful, and healthy, and was
inspired to work toward that goal.
The result is Seemorg Matrix Work™.
Briefly stated, Seemorg Matrix Work™ is a set of protocols that
provides thorough, deep, quick, and relatively painless treatment even for
people with personality disorders. It
does this by relating childhood and other traumas to negative beliefs, desires,
compulsions, obsessions, fantasies, and addictions, and clearing all of them.
It incorporates protocols for physical abreactions, allergies, and
physical illness, and so makes possible the healing of psychogenic diseases
along with their causes. Finally,
by including practices for instilling Positive Qualities, centering, embodiment,
purification, grounding, and presence, it provides opportunities for spiritual
development and wholeness for client and therapist alike.
Seemorg Matrix Work™ is giving my clients the gift of healing and
peace, plus the possibility of deeper development.
It has transformed them from people who had to suffer for years in order
to achieve a modicum of freedom and joy, to people who can have these blessings
quickly and almost painlessly. I am happy to report that with every passing
month, clients and therapists alike are reporting extraordinary successes with
of Seemorg Matrix Work ™
Matrix Work is based on the psychodynamic underpinnings provided by analytic
psychology, the neo-Freudians, and self psychology, on traumatology, on energy
psychology-- TFT, EFT, TAT, EDxTM, BSFF, and NAET, on Reiki and MariEl, and on
teachings and practices drawn from Sufism, Buddhism, and Hinduism.
Conceptual Basis of Seemorg Matrix Work™
The most significant
basis of this work is the redefinition of trauma.
In the Matrix model, any occurrence is considered a trauma which, when we
think of it or it is triggered by some present event, evokes difficult emotions
and/or physical symptoms, gives rise to negative beliefs, desires, fantasies,
compulsions, obsessions, addictions or dissociation, blocks the development of
positive qualities and spiritual connection, and fractures human wholeness.
focus of Seemorg Matrix Work, is the clearing of both the recent traumas that
often bring people into therapy, and Core Traumas and Core Traumatic Patterns,
the original childhood or earlier traumas that underlie the present traumas.
This is because Core Traumas and Core Traumatic Patterns are the ones
that have most deeply shaped-- and sometimes, distorted-- our lives.
For many of us, Core Traumas and Core Traumatic Patterns are about being
unloved, unappreciated, abandoned, betrayed, used, unseen, and the like.
Core Traumas breed destructive Core Beliefs, such as:
“I am bad,” “The world is a horrible place,” and “People are
out to get me.” These beliefs,
which often reside in the unconscious, negativize the individual’s view of
self, other, the world, and life. Any
significant trauma can spawn many interconnected negative Core Beliefs.
As they accumulate, they form a foundation of negativity in the psyche,
and turn us toward pessimism, bitterness, skepticism, and negative expectations.
Because Core Beliefs are integral parts of the character structures of
the psyche, transforming destructive or negative Core Beliefs to a constructive,
positive state is crucial to the healing of any pathology, but most of all to
the healing of the personality disorders. As
a result, it is as important to treat Core Beliefs as it is to treat the traumas
that spawned them.
Structure of Traumatic Experience
course, what is implied is that there is usually a structure to traumatic
experience that must be taken into account if we are to treat our clients
chronologically, Core Traumas occur which can result in profound emotions,
sometimes physical sensations or symptoms, the birth of negative Core Beliefs,
desires, compulsions, obsessions, and addictions, dissociation, the derailment
of the development of related positive qualities, and a fracturing of human
wholeness, so that mind, emotions, ego, self, body, spirit, and ground are no
longer well interconnected.
the traumas and their resultant negative emotions, sensations, fantasies,
beliefs, desires, compulsions, obsessions, addictions, and dissociation become a
template for further experience. Together,
they form a working unit, a complex within the psyche that says, “This is how
it (always) is.” The trauma
validates the related negative emotions, sensations, beliefs, desires, etc., and
each of these confirms the trauma and the others.
This traumatic complex becomes reality for the traumatized individual.
The result of this programming is the development of lesser traumas that are in
some sense repetitions of the deep level traumatic complexes, like goslings
following their mother. This is
called a traumatic pattern.
the trauma complex becomes a grid through which negative experience is
selectively taken in. If we hold
negative Core Beliefs about others and ourselves that arise from a Core Trauma,
we see the world through them.
Fourth, the traumatic complex becomes a grid that keeps positive
experience selectively out.
Matrix Work™: Whole Healing
the parts of Seemorg Matrix Work are intrinsic to thorough healing.
For example, transforming negative Core Beliefs rights the character
structures that we therapists have found so difficult to transform.
These character structures are like a vast net of interwoven strands of
yarn that forms the foundation of psychological functioning.
When a traumatic pattern distorts the psyche, it affects not one strand,
but numbers of interconnected ones, like dry rot in a rug.
For this reason, Seemorg Matrix Work clears matrices, whole groups of
related Core Beliefs connected to particular types of traumas or traumatic
patterns. There is little point
replacing one strand of yarn in a section of carpet affected by dry rot: It will
soon be re-infected. You need to
replace the whole section. Similarly,
transforming Core Belief Matrices makes characterological transformation
possible, even with narcissistic clients.
Each human being has a spirit as well as a psyche and a body.
That spirit is the center of Divine experience, and the deeper center of
each human being. The process of
connecting to and dwelling in that spirit (also called, the self, the center,
the higher self, the Atman in various traditions) is perhaps the most profound
and satisfying experience of all. In
my twenty years as a therapist, I have often seen trauma block connection to
spirit, just as it blocks the flowering of Positive Qualities, all of which are,
in fact, aspects of spirit. Through
its emphasis on developing the Positive Qualities and through its Meditations,
Seemorg Matrix Work can heal the breach between person and God that has been
caused by trauma.
The result is a whole therapy that clears trauma and its sequelae so
thoroughly that clients can live safely and comfortably in their depths, that
nurtures clients’ growth through the development of their Positive Qualities
and through the reunion of all their aspects of being.
the Developer of Seemorg Matrix Work™
Asha Clinton was impelled to become a therapist and healer after a near-terminal
illness. During her many years of private practice, she learned various forms of
healing, became a practicing student of Buddhism and Sufism, and learned the
emerging energy psychology techniques. Seemorg Matrix Work is the synthesis of
more than twenty years of training and clinical practice.
A former Princeton University professor, Dr. Clinton is nationally known
for her clarity and insight as a presenter and supervisor, and her skillfulness
in treating trauma, abuse, physical illness, and spiritual blockage.

and Teleconsultation in Seemorg Matrix Work.
Our new field has taken responsibility for the dissemination of and
training in the energy psychotherapies in an amazing and wonderful way.
Now I want to take responsibility for the development and improvement of
Seemorg Matrix Workers. Successful
Seemorg Matrix Work requires the synthesis of energy psychotherapy, traditional
psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, psychoneuroimmunology, spirituality, and
analytic psychology. Without
supervision, many therapists and healers may not provide as high a quality of
Seemorg Matrix Work as they are capable of, and as their clients deserve.
For these reasons, certification in each level of Seemorg Matrix Work
requires a minimum of 5 teleconsultations
in Seemorg Matrix Work after the completion for each level of Seemorg Matrix
one of the five sessions, each person desiring certification is required to
present for consultation at least one case in which s/he is using Seemorg Matrix
Work, and to demonstrate in consultation both with questions, comments, and
presentation, that s/he has mastered that level. Toward this end I am offering
individual and group sessions that cover everything relevant to Seemorg Matrix
Work training. You are, of course,
welcome to take Seemorg Matrix Work training without certification, or receive
more sessions of consultation than are required for it.
Teleconsultation sessions are dynamic and exciting. There’s always
plenty of time for questions, comments and feedback, and Asha clarifies the best
ways to use Seemorg Matrix Work with each client that is being discussed. Group
conference call teleconsultation costs $300 for the five consecutive sessions
required for certification, and $60 for each additional session thereafter.
Group Conference call teleconsultation on selected Friday afternoons is held at
3:30 and 4:30 PM EST. Each person in the Group Consultation pays his/her own
telephone bill. Individual consultation costs $175 for 45 minutes, with session
times arranged with Asha.
presentation includes a brief childhood history of the client, the presenting
problem(s), the relationship of the client with each parent, what the parents
were like, the parents’ relationship with each other, the presenting problem,
relevant traumas, and the therapist's questions, problems and issue(s) with the
case. Relevant psychodynamic, traumatological, and transferential/countertransferential
issues are also addressed during the sessions.
Some sessions are special in Seemorg Matrix Work, and typically focus on
particular disorders or illness such as OCD or asthma. Information on upcoming
special Topic Teleconsultaitons is placed on the listserv.
As a part of the teleconsultation format, we also ask that you subscribe
to the Seemorg Matrix Work listserv, Matrices@listbot.com.
Cases that are to be discussed are posted there a few days before the session.
In this way participants can read and think about each case beforehand and give
more useful feedback.
To be teleconsultation group members for a given level, participants must
have completed Seemorg Matrix training at that level.
