    I keep referring to myself by my maiden name, instead of my married name. I am divorced. It’s just a strange thing I noticed. I sort of like it. Any ideas? I’ve been divorced for almost 40 years and this started just happening since I started doing Mir.

    • Dear lady from Canada,
      Is it possible the divorce is only now really pulling through, getting out of your system?
      I hope you will want to share more things you notice. To me this looks like a very positive development!
      Good luck!
      Greetings, Mireille

  2. Hello Mireille, does it matter in which language we say the sentences? My mother tongue is Spanish but I have been speaking English for a long time. I want to do it in Spanish but the way it’s written in your website is not correct. It’s obviously translated from English and it doesn’t sound right in Spanish, there are even spelling errors. Can I fix it so it sounds real? I can also give you my fixed version if you want to correct it in your website. Otherwise I will have to do it in English but I don’t know if it would have the same effect. Thanks!

    • Dear Cuca,
      Could you please send me the correct translation, the way you think it should be spelled?
      And the effect will be the same, regardless of the language you choose.
      Good luck!

  3. Hi Mireille
    I’ve been doing the MIR-Method for 3 weeks now and noticed changes. My blurry eyes are much clearer and my bounderies around people have improved. When I get over emotional I seem to have a lot of sadness stuck in my chest and goes into a panic attack like I’m frightened to let it go .i wonder if I could use the addiction technique at beginning of method to help clear this .I know it’s not an addiction but could I use this as I seem to have a deep sadness stuck down in my body .I love the MIR-Method and thank you for introducing it.
    Warmest wishes

    • Dear Jean,
      Yes, you can try it out! Holding on to sadness CAN be a kind of addiction, indeed! And you can also put your hand on your chest and stroke on that hand while doing the 9 steps. This is the extra technique I wrote about in article 120.
      Good luck and let me know how you’re doing!
      Greetings, Mireille

  4. Hi Mireille,
    I posted my comment on the wrong page so here it is again
    my husband tried the mir method for big eczema on the chest on both sides of the body and under the arm on the right side of the body and also for allergy in the eyes with a bigger one on the rignt eye, after few days the eczema was worse and started tu hurt him under the arm as it never has done it before. I told him to do the steps 5 and 9 and to put cream on it and he feels better. Is it usual that problems can be worse? My addiction to food is still here after 4 weeks and I don’t eat less on the contrary I got fat! the wart on my daughter’s feet is even bigger it takes all her heal!
    thanks for advice!
    Best Regards

    • Dear Laurence,
      Can you please check which steps you are doing? You should be doing only step 5 and 7 in the first two weeks! After that you go to all 9 steps and then you never go back to only step 5 and 7.
      Besides that, yes, physicl issues can get worst at first. Please read the frequently asked questions, nr. 4B.
      When you start to eat more, the reason is usually that old sadness comes to the surface. When people don’t want to (or can’t) feel the sadness, can start to eat more (sweet) to push down the sadness. Did you check the wart with your doctor? I wonder if it is ‘just’ a wart.
      I wish you good luck and hope many things will turn for the better!
      Greetings, Mireille

      • Hi Mireille,
        for my husband it’s 5 and 7 and not 9 sorry for the mistake, he feels better he will start the all 9 steps next monday. I asked some help from a psychologist because I eat and hate my self more and more and she told me that the fact of eating no matter what without hunger unless having bellyache wasn’t an addiction but a sort o self-harm because it isn’t a pleasure to eat for me I eat to feel worse and not better.it’s like I don’t allow my self to be happy to be comfortable in my skin. Do you think I could add a sentence like “get rid of self-harm” or something like that? thank you for your patience and again sorry for my writing errors.
        Best regards

        • Dear Laurence,
          What writing errors? Your English is great! Good for you to go to a psychologist. It explains a lot to me. No, you don’t need to add a sentence, because all of the 9 steps work in a way that enhances your self esteem and self love. Could you please look at this video ‘Seeding your self love’ to give you some extra support?
          Wish you all the best and good luck!

          • Thank you very much Mireille.
            I watched the video but the problem is that I don’t know what I need …I have to search deeply inside of me!
            Best regards

          • Dear Laurence,
            Well, then just let the MIR-Method do its work!
            Good luck!
            Greetings, Mireille Mettes

  5. I was in courage to use your MIR-Method. I actual started the treatment
    Octocber 23, 2014 15 days. Old behaviors have surfaced which has cause chronic fatigue, very uncomfortable. Still applying the MIR-Method 2 times a day and allowing my mind and body to process the healing and clarify mission.

    • Dear Susan,
      Thank you for continuing the MIR-Method. Yes, it can take a long time for the healing to show up. And fatigue is quite known as a first reaction of your body. Many healing processes start at the same time and you can really feel that in your tiredness. The best you can do is take as much rest as needed, so you support your body in healing itself. Besides that, please drink enough water (1 to 1 1/2 liters each day).
      Good luck! ♥

  6. I have been doing MIR-Method since februari. No results. . I am now nearly 90 kilo. Doctors say i am allowed max 65 kilos for my age and length. I practice buddhist meditation in daily life. I am succesful there. Not with the body. Hoped MIR could help me overcome this hormonal disturbance. In vain.

    • Dear Isha,
      Yes, that must be very disappointing. What you could do, is contact a MIR-Method guide to help you find out why it hasn’t worked so far. Sometimes you need to continu it longer, especially if you had intens negative emotions in your childhood, for example humiliation or rejection.
      I wish you all the best and hope you will receive the help you need!
      Good luck!
