Target Hunting

Selecting an appropriate target is the heart of using this amazing process. It answers the question of what is causing this discomfort. However, is is NOT important to get it right the first time.

My first practice session completely ended my persistent discomfort with air travel.

When I returned home from my first Logosynthesis training, I noticed that I did not feel nearly as overstimulated by the day-long trip as I had felt in the past. I didn't really understand why because I didn't remember this experience for several years.

I forgot that my first target was something about my discomfort with plane travel. Not much happened when I said the 3 sentences. When I was asked about my experience of sitting quietly and simply noticing my internal responses, I reported remembering  a childhood experience of riding a subway train at rush hour. The experience was “these bodies pushing in on me and squishing me.” That became my second target.

Often people start with one target and while they say the sentences a very strong image or memory appears. Sometimes its the remembered sound of someone's voice saying particular words or even a remembered smell. The new memory then becomes a powerful focus for saying all the sentences again.

My second target made the difference.

Letting Go of Stuff

Tucked away in the bottom of a closet I have a very beautiful and very dilapidated, stained white cashmere sweater. It has elaborate beading showing the initials of my maiden name.

One of my cats once discovered it tucked into a half-zipped garment bag and decided it was a wonderful place to deliver her kittens.

Yes, today I'm talking about letting go of physical stuff. Logosynthesis works for that too — but only if I take time to do it. Even with physical things, maybe especially with physical things, my attachments persist.

That is often because stuff represents much more than what it is.

So what does this object represent to me? It was an engagement gift from my mother-in-law who did the beading 58 years ago. She died a few years later. I never got to know her very well.

It is time for me to let go of lots of stuff. I will say the 3 Logosynthesis sentences to recover my energy from this sweater, and perhaps from my fantasies about my mother-in-law, and then let it go.

If you are having a hard time getting rid of stuff, you may want to try the same process. The target, in this case, “this beaded sweater,” can be followed by the words “and all that it represents.”

Experiment Yields Results

An email I received this morning blew me away. A gentleman in his late 60's shared the impact of experimenting with Logosynthesis.

He writes, "For some time I have been trying to cope with Meige Syndrome" (involuntary, irregular muscle contractions – of the lower face, jaw and neck, as well as of the eye.) … after reading about Logosynthesis "started to realize that I was trying to cope with a pattern of symptoms rather than looking toward underlying sources of the problem."

In his letter he describes how the problem got worse over the years and the many different methods that have brought him only partial and temporary relief of symptoms.

"Following your suggestions in Letting It Go: Relieve Anxiety and Toxic Stress in Just a Few Minutes Using Only Words (Rapid Relief with Logosynthesis®, I have begun using Logosynthesis one "slice" at a time on various specific 'targets' as I recognize them.  I can report very significant improvements in the ability to relax tension in the body …"

[This] "has been the most promising light for me so far in finding my way out of this affliction!"

I am thrilled with this information and the hope this process provides. Please experiment with it and share what you learn.
