Nicoleta Draghici on how RTT “changed my life.” RTT made me aware that I had this core belief that the world is a dangerous place, people will always hurt me, they will attack me. And they did. Because what you expect tends to realize. Also RTT helped me to realize that I was playing the invisible program: I didn’t want to be seen, heard or listened to, I didn’t want any attention. I have learned that vulnerability is authenticity. How did you discover RTT and why did you decide to do it? How is RTT different from other approaches you have tried? I came across a link to a masterclass where Marisa explained RTT and the career opportunities it provided. I decided to take a leap of faith into the unknown. I am so glad I did that. Before RTT I tried different healing techniques, like timeline healing and akashic sessions, but nothing worked as rapidly and efficiently as RTT. I remember when I first did the RTT technique of “upgrading the child”, I couldn’t stop crying! It was more than crying, it was groaning. My inner child, which had been severely beaten up and never defended herself, finally managed to express all the hurtful feelings I kept to myself for so many years. I’ve never experienced anything so powerful! RTT was so liberating and profoundly healing. What was your experience of training in RTT? I loved the training! I learned so much about how the mind works and how you can make friends with the mind and have it work for you, not against you. I also loved the Practice Register (which gives you the opportunity to swap practice sessions), and the beautiful, very supportive community on Facebook. I also love that I have the freedom I’ve always wanted in my life and I can work online from wherever I am in the world. What did you most want to achieve from RTT? RTT definitely answered my question: “What can I do to be happy?” I believed for so many years that love, joy and happiness are not for me, they are for other people. I have probably suffered from complex PTSD all my life (without me even knowing it), but I have learned that post traumatic stress also provides the opportunity to GROW. I have learned that trauma can put you in two modes: not dead and alive. Not dead means that you survive, you barely keep your head above the water, always struggling. Alive means you thrive, you can bloom. I am still a work in progress, but the more I work on myself and heal deeper parts of me, the more I shine. How has your life changed now as a result of RTT? How does this relate to what you most wanted? If someone would have told me that I would end up helping so many people using the transforming power of RTT I wouldn’t have believed it. Everything I have experienced in my life has made me a better person, helping me to connect more easily with my clients. The discovery call, where I explain what RTT is and how can I help, is a mind to mind connection. The 1:1 sessions are a heart to heart connection, and people feel that, even if they’ve never met me before. It is so rewarding to see that you can contribute to someone else’s life and be in the service of humanity. What has been your biggest impact with RTT? What are you most proud of? Is there a client story that brings this to life? Every client session is different, people are on different milestones in their journey. Nevertheless, I would like to share a session I had with a 14 year old boy who suffered from severe migraines, with vomiting and fainting, ending up in ER. The doctors couldn’t tell what was causing that. In the session it all went back to his relationship with his father, who proved to be a classic narcissist. I remember that his mother told me that right after the session her son came to her and gave her a big hug and said: “Mommy, I love you so much!” They both expressed their feelings of love and appreciation for one another. One session of RTT changed the whole dynamic in that family. Anything else you would like to share? I am so grateful for all my life experiences, but mostly for the extraordinary experiences to come. Thank you Nicoleta for sharing your story with us, it is wonderful to hear how RTT has changed your life and the impact you are now having as an RTT therapist, improving the lives of others.
