I Am Grateful

Writing this book was taking an unknown path to an imagined destination and I was incredibly grateful when my early readers gave me feedback that let me hope I had accomplished my goal.

I was trying to take a deceptively simple technique that nobody fully understands and explain it so that naive readers might use it to change their relationships to stress and suffering.

This process, the integration of many very complex thought lines, had already helped me make important changes in my work and my personal life. I felt like I was walking a thin line between old and new views of the change process itself and doing my best to honor both perspectives.

I am grateful to the colleagues and friends around the world who acted as sounding boards for me as I wrote the pieces that made up this book. Yet, I practically held my breath when I asked new people to read the complete manuscript.

I am especially grateful to Dr. Willem Lammers of Switzerland, who originally discovered this process, helped me learn it, and asked me to create this book in the first place. And I am grateful that he has now taken the resulting work and had it translated and distributed in German.

Releasing Unneeded Protection

Finding a new way to look at life challenges is the core to rapid anxiety relief.

Most conventional self-growth training says to look at the story of what happened that is creating or has created distress in your life. Then examine the story in detail and learn to relate to it in a new way. This can be painful and take a lot of time.

Logosynthesis is different. It is not about the story!!!

It is about where you have stored the frozen life energy when you could not manage the problem when you originally encountered it.

One way of looking at this is that you once did something to create a protective shield to take care of yourself. Now that shield is getting in your way.

Instead of looking at why you created the shield, you use the sentences to dismantle the shield.

The reason you created the shield in the first place may have been forgotten long ago. In any case, spending energy on why you built a shield or wall that you no longer need is not an especially good use of your current energy.

You use the sentences to let it go.

What’s Energy???

A very logical-minded individual asked me to explain this word that I use so frequently. I started by saying I don't really know.

Wikipedia has pages on the topic. It starts with a ability to get something done. It is a "conserved quality" of something. It goes on to list 14 different forms of physical energy. Yikes!

Then there are ideas like human energy and Chi–and we sort of understand that those words are an attempt to explain an experience we all share.

We know when we feel able to be present and engage with the world and  each other. We know when we can barely drag ourselves to our next activity.

We know that quality is revived with food, drink and human contact. It's something we share yet it is almost impossible to define.

Yet, I talk about your energy being stuck and you understand, or at least sort of understand what I am saying and can use my words to help change your life.

Every now and then I realize that there is much more happening than I understand and that that is still OK. We are traveling this path together.
