Subject Covered by the Article:

So many people have been affected by the loss of a Vanishing Twin. I have identified several categories describing the modus operandi of VTS survivors which can help someone clear all the ramifications caused by the trauma of losing a loved one so early in the human experience.

Many times I have found that people have had the VTS come up in NET sessions relating to one or more of the aspects described below. However, I found that many aspects have3 not come up yet even though they may be affecting the person’s life. This is a way of exploring these aspects on purpose and clearing them independently of any other topic.

Summary of the NET Procedure:

This is a procedure containing many steps found useful to help a person feel better about themselves, freer to be who they are and have their needs met without fear of terrible consequences to themselves or others. Feeling good about oneself is so important and so many people are suffering from low self-esteem. I found that it all goes back to the VTS for many patients.

The addendum provides a list of all the Categories I have identified so far. You probably will come up with others. To help people zero in quicker on what kind of beliefs might be there, I included an exhaustive list of unwanted beliefs about life for each Category. A very effective way to state these personal declaratives (PD) is the following:

“I can let go of the belief that life means being a …”

You can also use this approach for anyone who would like to fine tune their beliefs about life, love, or improve the relationship they are in by clearing one or both partners.

You will need to use a few techniques presented at previous Eagles such as the one I presented, “Getting to the Heart of the Artichoke” (Teshna Beaulieu, DC, Eagles 2002). This is where you have the person rate themselves from 0 (no stress) to 10 (extreme stress) on how upsetting the issue is. Let’s say it is a “10”. Test them on: “I am OK with…(whatever the issue is)”. Do NET as usual. Once processed, rate it again. If they say “6” ask them what the “6” is about. What aspect of the issue comes up. Whatever they say you use it to go in again and do NET as usual. Repeat the process until they rate the issue at zero.

Another technique that will save you a lot of time is the one I presented in 2003 on page 12; “A Time Saving Tip to Uncover and Clear all the Active Emotions within the Involved Meridian of an NEC”. This is where once you found which MAP is involved in the usual NET protocol you test all the emotions on that MAP to find all the ones that apply. Then while the person is holding the MAP, the emotional points and thinking of the original snap shot you say each one of the emotions out loud for them to clear one after the other or all at once. You may have to say them a few times as they breathe them out to help them remain focused on all of them.

Whatever your beliefs are about life will determine what and who you attract in your life, and what and who you are attracted to. This is an approach designed to help someone stop attracting in their life the repetition of their womb experience and start attracting exactly what they want instead. Have fun!

Actual Clinical Case and Results Using This Procedure:

A man had been in an abusive relationship after another for years and would find an excuse for every abuse his mate was doing. We knew he had a Vanishing Twin (VT) from previous NET sessions. We tested him for “I can let go of the belief that love/life means being a doormat.” He went weak on that and we found the Kidney MAP negated the weakness. We found the emotions of fear, dread, paralyzed will, and impending doom. The original time went back to when he was 3 months in utero. He felt that standing up for himself had caused the twin to vanish. He had never been able to stand up for himself since, putting up with anything just to make sure people would not vanish out of his life. He rated himself at a 7 after clearing the first MAP. What came up for him was being terrified of being alone. He went weak on that thought and we found the Adrenal MAP to negate that weakness. The emotions of paranoia, can’t figure it out, muddled thinking, muddled instability, and emotional instability were present. We went back to the womb again for the original time. He felt that standing up for himself had resulted in ending up all alone and terrified that “something” bad might happen to him too. After that he rated himself a 4. What came up was feeling hopeless when alone. The Pancreas MAP negated that and the emotions of lack of control over events, hopeless, despair, nervous, stifled, worry, and over-concerned tested weak. Again we went back to the womb for an original event. After clearing that one he rated himself at a zero.After that session, he found he could stand up for himself with his current mate without fear that she would leave him and even considering leaving her if she persisted in being abusive. He could hardly believe he was the same person.

Step by Step:

You can use this procedure with anyone who had a VT.

  1. Have the patient say: “I can let go of the belief that life means being a doormat.” As an example, if they go weak find which MAP negates it and proceed as usual with NET protocol
  2. Using a scale of 0-10, have patient now evaluate their stress when thinking about the word doormator about whatever was uncovered in the first step. Then ask them what comes up when they think about it. Clear what it is as described in my paper of “Getting to the Heart of the Artichoke”(Teshna Beaulieu, DC, Eagles 2002) until they rate themselves at a zero.
  3. Test the patient with the opposite statement. For example, “I can allow myself to believe that life means standing up for myself.”
  4. You can also test the person saying, “I can let go of the belief that love means being a doormat.”As an example, if they go weak, find which MAP negates it and proceed as usual with NET protocol.Test: “I can allow the person I love to stay with me even when I stand up for myself”, “I can feel loved by someone who stays with me when I stand up for myself”, and “I can love someone who stays with me when I stand up for myself.” For more details refer to my paper “Mending a Broken Heart and Manifesting the Relationship of Your Dreams” (Teshna Beaulieu, DC, Eagles 2005).
  5. Test the suggested PDs for that category using the same method as above.
  6. Test each one of the categories the same way.

Equipment Used with this Procedure:


Nutrition Found Useful with this Procedure:


NET Remedies Found Useful with this Procedure:

#9 ER 911 or any of the other remedies that show up as per usual NET protocol.

What Someone Who Uses this Procedure Can Usually Expect:

Someone who will feel a lot freer to be themselves without fear of dire consequences.

Average Time to do this Procedure:

The whole technique will likely take many hours of NET. However, it can be broken down into many smaller sessions to accommodate your schedule and the patient’s desire to get it done fast or over time.


Here are the Categories I have identified so far:

  1. The Survivor: People who will justify any action to assure their survival. They have to be always right. They always get to the food first and take as much as they can. They are still making sure they won’t starve like their Twin did.
  2. The Savior: People that end up in the Healing or caring profession (like us), doing their best to save everyone as if they were saving their Twin over and over.
  3. The “can’t loose weight” one: People who are unable to loose weight no matter what they do because part of them believes if they loose weight they will vanish and die like their Twin did.
  4. The Eternal Single: People who are unable to be in a relationship because they are so afraid that if they love someone, that person will leave them or die. They can’t take the chance of getting hurt like that again.
  5. The Depressed One: People who just can’t allow themselves to be happy/healthy because they feel undeserving of having a good life because their twin didn’t.
  6. The Doormat: People who feel they always have to acquiesce/give in to the people they love to make sure they’ll stay with them. It’s never ok to say no to a loved one because they will leave or die.
  7. The Timid: People who are afraid of taking the space they need because they believe it is what killed their twin. They want to avoid harming anyone ever again so they make themselves invisible.
  8. The Worrier: People who are always worried they are missing something important that will result in trouble for them or the ones they love. They can be obsessive/compulsive, constantly checking and double-checking everything to make sure every thing is ok.
  9. The Paranoid: People who are paranoid that something bad will happen to their loved ones or themselves as it happened in the womb.
  10. The Guilty: People who feel they did something wrong. It’s all their fault. They believe it is harmful to others for them to live fully or even just be themselves. They believe their twin died because of them being alive or taking what they needed.
  11. The Abandoned One: People who have been abandoned over and over again through deaths or leaving; repeating the womb experience.
  12. The Low Self-esteem One: People who feel they are not good enough because they were unable to save their twin.
  13. The Addict: People who use addictions, i.e. cigarettes, as a trusted friend who won’t ever leave them; contrary to their twin.
  14. The “Still Living Through the Twin” One: People who are aware of another being wanting to do things through them, sometimes talking to them. The twin is still there with them.
  15. The Hyper-responsible One: People who feel responsible for everything and everyone trying to make sure no one ever gets hurt again because of an oversight on their part.
  16. The “Can’t be Alone” One: People who have to be in a relationship all the time. They are terrified of being alone again (as in the womb).
  17. The “Can’t Have a Live Child” One: Women who have repeated miscarriages/abortions reliving the dying fetus experience.
