Finding Triggers to Target

Early in my Logosynthesis practice, I wanted to stop thinking about an unpleasant encounter earlier in the day. I said the sentences using “that nasty man” as the target.  Suddenly I found myself thinking about someone who had bullied me when I was in 5th grade. That is where I had frozen the energy that triggered my discomfort that morning.

When I said the sentences again, targeting her, the obsessive thoughts vanished. But, before I said the sentences the first time, I had no idea that anyone from my distant past was involved. I did not identify the best trigger the first time around–and the process still worked for me.

The lesson here is to not be concerned about finding the perfect target for your sentences.

If you’re using Logosynthesis for your own growth, it is perfectly fine to just start with whatever you think happened just before you felt distressed. It probably won’t be the clearest or best possible description of the trigger that needs to be dissolved, but it will be good enough to get you started.

As you use this trigger in the sentences, you are likely to remember something else that is more precisely triggering your distress.

Logosynthesis professionals can find very precise triggers to use as targets. You can locate Certified Practitioners at http://www.Logosynthesis.International/professionals/

This paragraph is a comment I wrote about a passage on Page 82 of Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®.) You can see the passage in the book. You can also see the excerpt here. This link will take you to Bublish.com, where I regularly publish comments on parts of this book. This is a site where authors share of their work. You can subscribe to my musings, there, as well as to the musings of many other authors. It’s a great place to learn about new books and I recommend that you visit.
