What is Holographic Memory
Holographic Memory Resolution (HMR™)
is a new body-mind technique now available in this area. HMR™
allows expedient access to past memories and complete
resolution of the painful emotions associated with traumatic
events, without "re-living" the event or affecting
historical memory. This gentle, client-centered technique
can help eliminate “stuck patterns,” self-defeating
behaviors, negative thinking, and unresolved issues.
Painful memories, which may not be consciously recalled, are
often at the core of dysfunctional behaviors, chronic pain,
HMR™ is a "reframing" technique that employs,
simultaneously, a verbal technique and a simple, "hands-on"
energetic application to the client's electromagnetic field
(the "aura "or "subtle bodies" of the human energy field).
The HMR™ practitioner monitors the patient by observing REM
(rapid eye movement) as the client moves into the trance
state, and feels a shift in the client's energy field as
resolution occurs and the body and energy field return to a
state of balance. The combination of techniques coordinates
the conscious and subconscious minds in a "waking dream"
that allows access to the encoded traumatic memory and
associated emotions, without the danger of a deeper,
hypnotic trance state that could result in re-living or
Brent Baum, the originator of the HMR™ technique, describes
the trauma encoding process(1,2)
“A trauma is a spontaneous state of self-hypnosis...
which occurs spontaneously at times of stress and serves to
contain the experience to prevent the subject from becoming
overwhelmed.(3) Psychological shocks and traumatic events
are psycho-neuro-physiological dissociations…the encoding of
trauma in the nerve cells of the body is facilitated by the
limbic-hypothalamic-pituitary system (emotional center) and
exercises a profound influence on the functioning of the
autonomic nervous system, the endocrine system and the
At the moment of traumatization, all sensory perceptions are
“paused” and stored holographically at one millisecond prior
to the worst part of the event.(5) The event is encoded… and
stored in the nerve centers where the pain first became
overwhelming(6) …such memory “fragments” provide access to
the stored memory…as every fragment of a holographic scene
contains the whole(7) …The resolution of our traumas,
therefore, requires that we address these powerful, encoded
moments and states of consciousness."
Trauma resolution empowers the individual to release the
painful emotions that keep them tied to the past; once the
chains are broken, the individual is free to realize their
human potential by living fully in the present moment.

Manifestation of Trauma
A balanced human being is self-aware of all their
thoughts feelings and emotions on a moment to moment basis.
Self-awareness (or mindfulness) allows a person to be in the
moment, and respond to people and situations, rather than
react out of fear or anger. Reactions are the result of
experience and trauma.
The first figure shows a Balanced Human Being, all the
channels are open and there is a healthy energy exchange
with the environment.
The second figure shows how trauma (especially before seven
years of age), starts to create blocks in mental and
emotional function. A traumatized person will create a life
to match their mental perceptions or filters and manifest
what they heard and saw as children. It is no accident that
abused children often grow up to be abusive themselves.
The third figure shows how unresolved trauma, may over time
generate symptoms in the physical body if all other avenues
of expression are blocked by the traumatic experiences and
mental shields (denial, distraction, addiction) created by
the individual to cope after the trauma. The
mental/emotional stressors will disrupt the body through the
psycho-neuro-immunological (PNI) system, which creates
messenger proteins that travel throughout the body and can
influence the immune system and inflammation pathways,
leading to chronic “dis-ease” or other ailments.
