You need to be traumatized to be psychic (part 2 / 3)

Do you need to be traumatized to be psychic? Is there an alternative to being psychic (in the traditional sense of the word) which is safer and healthier?

In my previous article (read it before today’s article), I wrote about how scientific research linked certain psychic abilities with a type of brain damage called synesthesia.  This was amazing research for two very different reasons. Quite amazingly, it looks like a limited scientific acceptance for some “psychic abilities” (mainly aura reading). I never thought I’d live to see that happen!  But more importantly for my research, it validates my own theories about the links between psychic abilities and trauma.

I’ve spent years asking questions like:

  • why there is a correlation between psychic abilities and abusive/traumatic childhoods;
  • why so many “gifted psychics” are a bit “unhinged;”
  • why many people’s lives fall apart when they have a psychic awakening (or kundulini experience); and
  • why people are healthy (free from trauma) and spiritually motivated complain that they lack intuition (they think there’s something wrong with them that they cannot “see” or “hear” psychically).

In this Part 2 (of 3), I want to share my own personal thoughts and experiences on the relationship between psychic abilities and trauma, and to get your feedback/experience.

Not all psychic abilities are created equal

There are very different types of psychic or intuitive skills. They often go by names like “clairsentience,” “clairaudience,” “clairvoyance” and “claircognizance.” In traditional healing or intuitive development courses you may be taught (falsely) that these “gifts” all come from the same place, and that none are more important than the others. This isn’t really a lie, but it’s hugely misleading. For one thing, “there is clairaudience, and then there is clairaudience.”  (It’s one thing to hear, it’s another thing to know who/what you are hearing.”

From my research, and building on the research of Peak States and others, I would split psychic or intuitive skills into 2 categories: information from within and information from without (outside).

Of course the bright sparks among you will point out that there is no real difference between the two, as the Law of Correspondence says “as above so below, as within, so without.”  That’s a valid principle. But in practice there IS a difference. The differences might relate to (a) where the information is coming from; and (b) how your brain processes the information. This might sounds rather technical, but it changes everything.

My own personal intuitive experiences

I have always been intuitive and never really understood or questioned it until I started doing healing work.  I had my first “psychic” experience on my first healing workshop, when I was 27. Without going into detail, it was a strong visual experience and it blew me away. That was when I found out I could do “clairvoyant work.”  Later, after intensive mentoring and training, I developed the ability to “hear” guidance, what’s known as clairaudience.  I used these two abilities to guide me through my work as a teacher of an old healing modality (TH).

In 2008, I was exploring the relationship between certain healing techniques and trauma (such as the fact that changing beliefs about a trauma does not heal the actual trauma). That was when I came across the Peak States work which was very influential to me. I had sessions with a Peak States practitioner to heal the trauma of having done TH.  [This work inspired the first version of RPT. For information on the different versions and how RPT evolved see here.]

Something extraordinary and unexpected happened after this first session.  After clearing the trauma of “belief work,” I lost my ability to be clairaudient and clairvoyant.  For the most part these abilities never returned.  Many of you might be freaked out by this idea of losing your “gifts.” But believe me, something even more amazing happened.  Whatever intuition I had before was magnified a million times and internalized. What I had heard described as “claircognizance” became just “Being.”

My personal beliefs about psychic abilities

To me, “psychic abilities” are the poor man’s intuition; a mere parlor trick to fill classified sections of New Age magazines.  If I sound “anti-psychic” (as Rebecca of Psyched in Stilettos commented in the previous post), then it’s only because I think that something which disappears when you clear trauma is not something to covet.

Rebecca and I swapped a few emails and I’m not convinced that our abilities are so different, we just use different language to describe what we do. I think that any really good psychic has internalized their gift, accessing a deep knowing rather than outside guidance (so-called angels, guides, gods etc – all of these are parts of yourself which you are externalizing).   Given that Rebecca calls this “psychic” and I call it something else, I delayed publishing this page until I could get my terminology clear.

So let me be clear, I’m not anti-psychic. I’m anti-trauma.  If you have cleared all trauma from your life, your childhood and your conception (fertilization and in vitro trauma), and if you STILL want to talk to invisible friends upstairs, then please be my guest. However I find it almost inconceivable that someone free from trauma (the definition of Mastery) would externalize their intuition.

I’m biased of course because as a Taoist I don’t believe that there is a god/angel/guide outside of us in the first place.  It is much easier for a Taoist (or a scientist) to believe that psychic ability is trauma, than for a religious or spiritual person who believes in such beings.

So let me quickly add that I’m not necessarily saying that these beings don’t exist, and if you want to believe in higher guidance, I’m fine with that.  The point of this article is that the method of communication with such guidance is what matters. Do you place it outside of you (seeing or hearing it) or inside of you (feeling and knowing the right path)?

Well that’s my three cents… and I quite respect your right to disagree with my beliefs. At the end of the day, my soul purpose as it were is about clearing trauma, and RPT can be done by anyone of any spiritual, religious or scientific belief. That’s why I keep “Simon says” so different to “RPT principles.”

In part 3, next week I’ll take this conversation a step further and ask the question “does psychic development = creating trauma?”  What really happens on psychic development courses? Can they, for example, cause synesthesia? I’ll share my own thoughts about how intuition development may be done safely, and talk about where RPT fits into this (since it is an intuitive method).

Your comments and feedback

I’d really love to get your input.  Do you agree with my logic?  If healing your trauma meant losing your psychic abilities, would you still want to heal trauma?  I’d love to hear your experiences of psychic activation, or the opposite, of what happened when you healed trauma.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Warmest wishes;

Simon

  1. I would absolutely go for healing all trauma over having externally focused ‘psychic’ abilities. Especially having the knowledge that the *real* abilities would most likely be internalized as a result.

    I left a comment on the first part of this article but I do have something to add here.
    I see no difference between internal and external communication. I feel this connection to all without distinction between me and ‘others’. I know my communication comes from my connection with all sorts of different thought forms.
    Are you saying that you are the only thought form roaming through the universe? There are many different thought forms we pick up on, some are humans living on earth and others are from all sorts of places. My communication comes from within but it is through the connection to ALL, the Universe or The Mind in Hermetics, that I get my information.
    I have never been clairvoyant but I get a whole understanding of something in an instant and I have a great track record of being correct more than not correct. Clearing the trauma has created a stronger connection to the All that I am and that instant understanding. So I believe that clearing the trauma creates a stronger connection to YOU!! The ALL THAT YOU ARE YOU not the human you . In that connection your information is different. I believe that if you clear the trauma with RPT and you become more connected and more intuitive!

    Hi Melissa

    I think you misread the article but it is possible that I was misleading. Please send me a quick reply/email if you think the article needs a clarification.

    What I thought I said, which really addresses your exact point, is that all information comes from the one place, but that trauma causes us to externalize it. I haven’t re-read the article as it’s quite late here in Kazakhstan, but I just searched for the word “externalize” and yep I said that a few times.

    Of course we are all One. We are also unique Beings, but that’s getting off topic…

    So I stand by my belief that trauma causes us to deceive ourselves into thinking that information is coming from voices/visions, whereas in fact it is our own voice.

    There is a concept that we learned from Peak States that the voice of “upstairs” talking to us is actually the Spiritual Mind (Buddha Brain in Peak States). This is a part of us, it arises from our DNA. In a true Master, there is coherence so they cannot “hear” god, rather they “are” god. But a less developed being, one with high spiritual goals but also too much trauma, may believe they see angels, and hear god’s voice. Trauma has caused them to separate their Buddha Mind from their consciousness, so they externalize it. [This is said without judgment for "less developed beings" since I am one.]

    It does not mean we are separate but just that trauma causes neurological harm.

    I have a close friend here in Sweden that has used EFT and an extended own version of It. And he has cleared most of his traumas in the “now” body-mind as well as past lifes. And now he communicates internaly with the Hierarki and all “angels”. He is now recieving tons of text, poetry, and info as a messenger. I read the material with great amazement and also process as he does, I love this way of realesing the trauma.

    [Reply]

    Simon Rose Reply:

    Hi Martin, thanks for that info. I’d be interested to know where your friend really thinks that this inner communication/inspiration is coming from. I sometimes find that gifted healers, poets, etc, are too modest. For instance it’s easier to say “God healed him” or “the angels inspired this poem” then to say “I did this and it’s great.” Even though I’ve been working on this for years, I still find it weird to say “I healed him” because of so many years of bad programming. Your friend sounds awesome, and too modest.

    Your friend might be interested to know that there are now techniques that are literally thousands of times faster and more permanent in clearing trauma than what he’s doing. For one thing, one RPT session and he never needs to do a past life clearing ever again… might be worth mentioning that Peter Karlen is teaching RPT in Swedish. He made a really great basic intro video about RPT in Swedish here, it’s better than anything I did in English.

    Oh yes trauma causes neurological harm, I agree with that!
    I am curious of what you think about thought forms of other people and other worldly beings. I believe that these thought forms are around and I wonder if that is the external part we think we hear or see.
    I do not think we are the only intelligent species in the universe/galaxy, I am more of an ancient astronaut believer myself.

    I agree that many people pick up on others’ thoughts. Not just other people but things. This is a bit outside my discussion since it’s not really about hearing voices; rather it’s about sensitivity to the environment.

    About ETs, it should go without saying that we are not alone in the universe. There are a billion billion planets, many of them would have life.

    However, it is a form of trauma-induced deception to believe (without hard evidence) that ET is talking to us. Those who channel messages from ET are indistinguishable from those channelling messages from arch-angels, gods etc. In a word, trauma.

    This issue has been dealt with brilliantly by one of the greatest scientific minds of the 20th century, the Nobel Prize winner Carl Sagan. He brilliantly describes how demonic visitations of past eras evolved into ET visitations. He perfectly describes how underlying psychiatric conditions (i.e. trauma) is the common factor. Whereas trauma in Biblical times caused people to see burning bushes and hear godly voices; trauma in the 20th century caused flying saucers with flashing lights. The technology changed but the psychology stayed the same. This book is a MUST READ for pretty much everyone, but certainly for anyone interested in the interaction of science and spirituality:

  5. I spent some time in the ’90s with Chagdud Tulku Rinpoche (who is now deceased), and he gave me some advice which I have carried with me since. He said when it comes to gods, Buddhas, etc., if you think of them as only internal archetypes, there’s a tendency to slip into the idea that these beings are only imaginary. And if you think of them only as objective beings, there’s a tendency to miss the fact that you have the very same nature that they do. So the paradox is to hold the view of both simultaneously. I’ve found this perspective to be quite helpful. I can look at the Medicine Buddha as a real being, and simultaneously know that I am the Medicine Buddha and share the same Buddha nature as he does.

  7. I had an interesting dream last year. I am not sure what I tapped into but it was interesting.
    In the dream I was walking on a beach and a robed hooded figure walked up to me. This presence told me to give Laura my book on healing the emotional aspects of cancer. Laura is a lady I talk to only 1-2 times a year. Later that week I called Laura and told her my dream and she said earlier in the week her niece called her and told her she had breast cancer and she did not know what to do. Interestingly Laura did not want the book.

    I guess I could come up with a bunch of reasons for the dream, divine intervention, intuition, psychic ability or just plain coincidence. I am still wondering.

    beatiful example Jim. that’s congruent with the direction I’m taking in the blog – you can have amazing and powerful insights without needing to believe that there is something “outside.”

    Interesting to speculate on whether it’s Laura or her friend that did not want the book. If the friend would want it, is Laura controlling what the friend is ready for? This is pure speculation, but might help in your interpretation of the dream (that it was for the friend’s benefit not Laura’s).

    Jim Reply:

    When I talked with Laura she felt her niece was not ready to read the book.

    This brings me to another example along those lines. I recently wanted to take a class and a friends friend has taken it. So I asked my friend if I could talk to her friend to find out what she thought of the class. Her response was probably not, she is very protective and would not want to talk about it.

    Why, in both examples do people make decisions for others. Should we not let people make their own decisions instead of having our beliefs and experiences get in the way of what they may want?

    This could open up a whole discussion and time is short, so I will leave it at that.

  8. Well I guess I should be comforted by your article as I’m one of those people who complain about lacking psychic abilities. During the TH courses I did with you we did an angel reading exercise. I’ve always found those type of exercises a bit frustrating as I never really know whether the images that come into the mind are made up, random or significant and the feedback from the other person is always going to be subject to confirmation bias. In one of the RPT courses we did an intuition exercise where we had to “read” the other person and I remember feeling upset as she seemed to be reasonably accurate (in a generalised sort of way – again subject to confirmation bias) whereas my reading felt vague and made up. I could tell by the look on her face that I was off the mark and she was trying hard to find something to positively comment on (“Damm it! I’m the only psychic dunce in a room full of reincarnations of Nostradamus! I don’t belong here! What’s wrong with me?!”). In light of this article I guess that was more of an indication of good mental health than anything to be upset about!

    Your article has got me thinking about the pros and cons of intuition versus classic psychic senses as well as the chicken and egg question that comes up. I think we’re all intuitive to some extent and, whilst there’s a bit of overlap, I agree with your distinction between intuition (which is more of a direct knowingness) and classic psychic senses such as clairvoyance and clairaudience.

    Personally I believe there’s a higher self aspect as well as a physical brain aspect. When you think about it, knowingness is the most direct form of mental communication possible – when you know something, you just know it and you know it instantly. Whereas clairvoyance and clairaudience is indirect – it requires interpretation and mulling over before having any meaning (which opens it up to misinterpretation) and it also takes some time to see the vision or hear the words – it’s not instant. Therefore, from an evolutionary point of view, claircognizance (or “being”) ought to be preferable to the other forms of inner communication as it creates more of a competitive advantage. Compare:

    - I see a furry creature in my mind. Should I be alarmed? Hmmm…let me focus…now that the mist has cleared it looks like a lion or tiger. Hmmm…actually it’s a lion. I wonder where the lion is? Hmmm…I wonder if it’s hungry? I wonder if it’s seen me? Ooops too late – now I know the answer to those last 2 questions and I get to chat with Carl Sagan about extraterrestrials!)

    with

    - Shit! Lion! RUN!!

    So, from an evolutionary perspective intuition seems to be superior and provide a competitive advantage whereas classic psychic senses like clairvoyance and clairaudience, whilst better than a kick up the clacker with a pointy shoe, are a lot slower, vague and seem to disturb the mind as they require a lot more processing. I can’t say that I’ve consulted a lot of psychics but the ones I have seen that focus on classic psychic senses seem to be a bit drained after a session.

    Going along with your theory, it seems like intuition is a natural ability but is so subtle it easily gets blocked by the white noise mental chatter caused by trauma. So the mind tries to find another way of accessing the same information. Because intuition is of a similar nature to the white noise (words and feelings), the mind then reverts to a different form of communication ie inner vision or hearing so it can rise above the white noise and be sensed. Like you said, “psychic abilities are the poor man’s intuition”. This then raises the chicken and egg question – do the classic psychic senses cause a disturbance in the mind or are they a symptom of a disturbed mind? I don’t know but, in musings over your theory, I suspect that it’s the latter ie. the mind’s preference will always be towards a direct knowing form of inner communication but, when that doesn’t work because there’s too much white noise, it’ll revert to plan B. Then when the white noise is cleared through work like RPT the mind dump plan B and go straight to plan A. Happy happy joy joy :)

    Simon Rose Reply:

    that was a brilliant recapitulation of my theory, thanks.

    I backed away from the duality of psychic versus intuitive and clairvoyance versus claircognizance because I think that drama that duality creates isn’t worth it. There’s a risk of people losing the deeper message because they disagree with your classifications. (That’s how the brain works, people feel threatened by new ideas so they are searching for a reason to disagree with you and prove you wrong. That’s a basic rule of Marketing 101.)

    I love how you have tied in evolution with the intuition discussion. Brilliant.

    I must say I always regarded you as very intuitive, in the sense of insightful, informed, aware, etc. The ability to do “psychic” stuff is neither here nor there. Like I said, I used to be great at angel readings, and now I cannot do them (not in the traditional way, though I can “pretend” in RPT-speak).

    With regard to the RPT exercise you referred to, basically a body-scan done the RPT way (pretending to be that person), it is an intuitive rather than psychic exercise. There is no reason why you cannot be great at it. May I suggest a consideration of fear and/or secondary gain. E.G. what is the worst thing that could happen to you if you were great at reading a person’s body/mind? Look for issues of responsibility etc.

  9. Really interesting Simon. Thanks. I get this entry and almost completely agree. Kevin’s addition is brilliant, too, and describes my thoughts to me better than my own thoughts do.
    I know what you mean about the angel readings. It was something of a speciality with me in the early days, probably because I had been so resistant, but I simply stopped. I can’t even try now. I was always reasonably sure, apart from one or two experiences that shook me a little, that it was “just us”, in the biggest and most beautiful sense.
    It was a little before finding RPT, actually, and I imagine it contributed to such a feeling of rightness when RPT showed up. I know others were feeling similar things at that time.
    I also recognize how just knowing has deepened while seeing and hearing have largely disappeared. I can do it if I put some effort in but there’s no appeal. It feels like a party trick.
    I’ve never thought about it much so thanks for the prompt.

  10. Thanks Sue for the words of wisdom. You expressed it well.
    Yeah I know I *could* do an angel reading, we even do them in RPT courses sometimes when we have time to kill…. mostly to demonstrate a point. But the desire to do it is really low.

    Here’s an interesting question (for everyone); what about future readings? Is this purely a psychic skill? What is really go on and what is the place for it in RPT?

    One intuitive I know in my area says he never makes predictions for people. He says the problem is that if he tells people, “You’ll get a new job in two weeks,” they sit around and wait for it to be delivered like a pizza.

    I have a friend who is initiated into Haitian Vodou and is very good at doing readings. But when he’s looking at “the future”, he’s really looking at what will be the consequences if the person takes a particular course of action. For instance, I asked him to do a reading for me one time as to whether to take a particular job. This was a small company run by a couple. His reading got a message very strongly that the husband was “the devil” and there wouldn’t be a way to control his negativity, and that they would expect the job to become my whole life. Well, I was desperate to get out of the situation I was in, so I took the job anyway. And everything my friend said came true. The husband was “the devil”, very negative and condescending towards anyone in the office. I ended up quitting when they decided to cut my salary and wanted me to work a lot of additional hours (the whole thing about expecting the job to be my whole life was right on).

    So is it a psychic skill? Hard to say … my friend communicates with the loa and uses tarot cards as a kind of verification that he’s getting accurate information. I’ve found him to be very accurate. And for me, I think that’s actually more important than debating whether the information is “psychic” or “intuitive” or where it’s coming from.

    By the way, my friend, who is scientifically trained, used to go along with the strictly psychological model of magick, that the spirits are just aspects of yourself and are “all in your head.” But then he saw some really freaky physical manifestations in Vodou ceremonies (some of which I’ve witnessed as well) which led him to question the purely psychological model.

    Simon Rose Reply:

    hi Kevin
    there may be a problem with the definition of “all in your head.” I would prefer “arising FROM your biology” which is not really the same thing.

    I think that all intuition (and magick) arises from within our biology. That does NOT rule out physical manifestations of the energy.

    If you go back to the Peak States work which inspired some of my RPT journey; their founding premise is that enlightenment is a series of peak states (which would include the ability to physically manifest things), and that these states arise from our biology. The key here is arising from within, rather than without.

    If you can accept the basic premise that intuition, enlightenment or “magick” arises from within you; there is no problem that I see with other spiritual phenomena. Just a massive difference on how/why it happens.

    I think we’re on the same page here. There’s a tendency for people to define “all in your head” as meaning “can’t create physical manifestations,” which is something with which I think we’d both agree.

  12. I will add to my comment on Part 1 that my mother did “hear voices” and “receive messages” from “God’s messenger angels” when I was growing up with her. However, I never had those types of experiences myself. Furthermore, where I saw such psychic or kundalini experiences being fairly common within the spiritual community I later became a part of, I was perfectly okay Not having those experiences myself, in part because I saw how they impacted my mother’s ability to function effectively on a day to day basis, and I did not feel I “needed” to have them to understand the Wisdom-Teaching of our Guru. I will add, for the record, that that same Guru, Communicated very clearly in His Wisdom-Teaching: “I am who you are”; i.e. He always reinforced the fundamental principle of Non-Separateness. That I had/have a “person” associated now with the “intuitive feeling” I have always had, does not change the fact that that intuition has always been a very internal experience for me. To have an apparently separate person Embody that intuition for me, and relate to me as another physical human being for a while, was helpful though, if for no other reason, the experience helped me to trust even more the intuition that had always been there. What the person on the “outside” communicated to me was in line with what I had been intuiting on the inside, and that same person expanded and deepened my understanding as well. At best, this is the function some “psychics” may serve with others, by helping them learn to trust their own intuitions, when the psychic “strikes a chord/accord” with them and magnifies what they may be only vaguely sensing within themselves otherwise.

    Hello simon,
    i certainly disagree to count intuition or seeing as a psychic or even supernatural skill.
    for me it is more or less a very natural skill which is just underdeveloped. Same if you stay in bed for 6 month because you broke your leg. Your other leg will not be very strong afterwards.
    Additional:
    One very nice explanation from the psychic and mental training book i just work along:
    We grow up under people who likely not have intuition or any psychic skills.
    They teach us that those are not true. After this kind of brainwash we deeply belief it independently from our outer beliefs. With that inner belief we cannot develop them because we are programmed to not develop them.
    We wear some kind of glass that displays the world the way it was teached to us and we are unable to change this without deep meditation or hypnosis.
    So in deep meditation we have the opportunity to drop the glasses for a minute and experience our real mind, real nature and the real world without all the stuff we grew up with.

    Oh and simon i have some this way trained habit which i really must rid. Is rpt a method which has a good chance of success to solve deep lying habits?

    [Reply]

    Simon Rose Reply:

    hi Healing Seeker, I do not think we disagree except perhaps in the use of labels. I make a distinction between “intuition” and “psychic” and what you have described, I call natural intuitive sense. To me, psychic is something else (less natural). But at the end of the day, these are just definitions, let’s not worry about them.

    About clearing habits, yes RPT can help, but it may not be the only thing to do. RPT is excellent at clearing trauma, secondary gains and self-sabotage. That alone can clear a lot of habits (e.g. many addictions). But some people require other steps which are outside the scope of RPT. So whilst RPT can always help (because there is always a trauma component) it may not be the only thing that needs to be done. Without knowing the habit I cannot really say more.

    hello simon,
    okay i tell you more:
    I did grew up in a middleclass family. while money was never tight we did save what we had and never spend very much.
    I think this was implanted to not have too much money. Now later it happend that i did not work and money became a thread now, while still having enough there is the question how long. I think that also was implanted as i ont have enough money and i later will not have enough money due to the inability to make money.

    I now doing the same as you investing what i have with the stock market and essentially i think i have the basic ability to make money now. But i have the feeling i sabotage myself due to the i will not have enough money even if the situation changed i have problems to adapt from i cannot make money to i have a chance when i use it wisely its no problem. And sadly my mom tells me exactly this that i have no chance, supporting the self sabotage and bad karma.

    An as you might know self sabotage is the worst poison when dealing with stocks.

Evette and I are busy travelling and working on the launch of a new website and blog. however I do try to answer all questions. I have re-read your last two comments and you shared a few points, some I agree with (e.g. about self-sabotage) and some that I may disagree with (about karma, which I regard as an ancestral or soul “trauma” which can be healed).

    Forgive me, but I cannot find the question you asked which I have not answered. I don’t think you asked my opinion on your philosophy, please highlight the question and I promise to answer it immediately.

    Warmest wishes from Vanuatu
    Simon

    Hello simon, thankyou for your answer. I know that sometimes a posting might just stay unanswered and is not attendet then and i appreciate very much that you answer now.
    My question would be like this.

    I selfsabotage myself in money questions and i am partly to trustful causing me to loose money the one or other way. On the other side i cannot find a way to get it back so easy as most efforts end as loss or die due to the self sabotage.

    Can rpt help with this in some way?
    Unless i find a solution sooner or later i will have to stop traveling one day so that would be really good.

    Simon,

    i looked at Grant’s work (peak states) and he said somewhere on his website that his work was different because he did not believe there was secondary gain and that this was just a psychological reference. Can you explain why you refer to it in RPT even though in peak states he rejects this concept?

    hi Erl, it took me a long time to answer this as I had to check with several friends who are students of Grants and also students of my work. The answer is complicated but the short answer is that Grant makes an assumption that clearing the primary trauma clears everything including the secondary gain. This might or might not be true (as I don’t work with the primary cell I cannot test it). In RPT we take the view that the combination of secondary gain plus triune brain method clears the primary trauma without having to work on the primary cell.

    In other words we have two different formula for achieving the same result. Neither is right nor wrong.

    I hope this answers your questions. Please understand that I don’t study or do Grant’s work.

    Blessings
    Simon

    Simon,

    What is the “primary cell” and why do you not work with it?

    Здравствуйте, Саймон! У меня после РПТ открылась способность общаться с духами.Я проводила РПТ как процессор одной своей клиентке, у которой умерли родители, сестра, сын и муж. Делая ей перезачатие в какой-то момент, когда была прочищена травма, связанная с ее матерью, мать вышла на связь. Я заговорила ее голосом и сказала много таких вещей, о которых не знала и не могла бы сказать от себя. Я говорила от имени умершей матери для дочери, моей клентки. Затем вышла на связь ее умершая сестра… Я была в шоке, потому что в РПТ ничего такого нет.
    В чем дело? Со мной что-то не так?

    Здравствуй Гульфайрус,
    Спасибо за сообщение. Очень рад, что тебе понравился курс и практикуешь.
    То что ты описала есть популярно в других духовных практиках, но в РПТ, насколько мне известно таких случаев не встречалось. Обычно духи должны получить разрешение на использование духовного канала и мне кажется, что это связано со слабыми границами. И помни, что это ты решаешь кому позвалять на контакт таким образом а кому нет. Если не чувствуешь дискомфорта, чтобы расказать о этой ситуации другому практику РПТ то советую проработать границы в паре.

  15. hi Healing Seeker, thanks for your query. The good news is that RPT really can help. In fact I think the best thing about RPT, it’s real core strength (compared to other methods) is how well it can clear self-sabotage. That’s great because self-sabotage is one of the key causes of distress, including physical, emotional, spiritual and financial problems.

    If you have a pattern where, for example, you have great business ideas but they always fail, then I would suggest starting with identifying fear of success. Imagine that you had lots of money – what would happen to you? How would you feel? How would your friends and family react / treat you? Somewhere in there is a fear or trauma that is driving the sabotage. Clear that fear or trauma and you will stop sabotaging and start winning.

    best wishes

    Dear Simon,

    I took 3 days to think how i properly answer you.
    It is more about having a great idea how to MAKE money which will fail. In contrast i think a social project which is completely unrelated to money would succeed.
    If i had enough money for me i would feel more safe.
    If i had much money i would feel more free.
    If i had all money i want i would feel exited about creating something or many things like companys or humanitarian organizations.
    I have loads ideas one as example is a company that sells expensive things to the rich and produce cheap things and give it to the poor for free.

    There are two people who would react
    1. my gf who would be also more free.
    2. my mom who would be happy for me but 100% not believe i can do this now.

    So basical i have no “normal” super regular job that would fund me.
    And my countrymen believe very strong and strict that this is the only way to make money and i am still caught in this.

    For many of my countrymen it is not possible to go offroad the normal job way and be successful and for me it will be hard to go this way.

    This more or less completely crushes my confidence to make money. And is a wrong education in some way and i think without the real confidence i cannot make money this way.

    Yet however it did work always out someway without i myself make money but it is too much headache for me and it does not make me happy this way i dont have this much trust in the higher forces and i was not able to get it in the last 3 years… :(

    Blessings dear Simon

    OK it sounds like you are feeling that the obstacles to your success are in your country and your environment, rather than (say) genetic trauma. this can still be cleared, though it’s more indirect. it requires coaching on building up new systems of support and structure to enable you to succeed.

    dear simon,

    I am no more in my country so everything is only old programming and mental influence of my past. So it is NOT in my environment.

    Dear HS, I am happy to see you are still around. If you are awaiting a reply from me, please just ask a (clear) question. In your previous comment you answered me, but didn’t ask anything.

    Warm regards

    Okay,
    well there is a real long posting above and my last posting was related to it i just feel your answer is not really applicable and maybe you reread the long post with the information that the main reason why it does not work is some kind of selfsabotage which has its roots in former lifes as far i know.

    Another good read and ”why so many “gifted psychics” are a bit “unhinged;” made me laugh as did the friends upstairs part lol.

    I was reading on this link about how trauma brings our attention out of the body and into the external world – http://www.wellsphere.com/complementary-alternative-medicine-article/first-chakra-effected-by-trauma-and-abuse/641022.

    hi Oli, thanks for that link, it was quite good. Most things that refer to “chakras” are too airy-fairy for me, but that article was sensible and grounded. Actually I think if you substitute “chakra” for “mind” she’s saying the same thing we are.

    [the difference is that chakras are energy centers, whereas minds are specific parts of the brain and biology. chakras are a step removed. more like a layer of symptom than a cause]

  17. since we are talking about termonology here; i haven’t seen you refer to empathic in regards to Feeling within or Knowingness. I have always been able to feel what others are feeling pretty easily but i cannot “see” things that will happen. However, i get a “feeling” such as when i had a feeling a past girlfriend was going to break up with me and that i could not stop her. It was a sense of knowingness but some of my friends thought i was paranoid. How do you distinguish in your terminology sense of Knowingness versus what some would call paranoia?

    [Reply]

    Simon Rose Reply:

    feeling or knowingness is intuition, or connection to truth. Paranoia is really a disconnection from reality or truth. Having an intuitive insight that your girlfriend is about to break up with you is intuition, not paranoia.

    However – and it’s a big however – I’ve seen plenty of paranoia. I can think of many times that a person said “my partner is cheating on me” or “my partner is going to break up with me” and it was not intuition, but trauma/fear. And the problem is that people create what they fear, so from fearing that their partner will cheat on them or break up with them, they quickly manifest that into reality.

    So yes, paranoia is different to intuition. But I have seen both and it’s hard to tell them apart (if you are not clear yourself).

    i’m interested in this thread because there have been times when i have a feeling and then find out the truth later connected to it. However, i might develop some fears if i really thought i was that powerful to create a negative experience just by thinking about it. i thought this relevant because in the rpt technique you talk about “pretending” to feel. i find this easy to do but until taking level one didn’t feel like i could clear it. I’m seeing a path to that now.

    Simon R Reply:

    hi Erl,
    Yes, one of the benefits of the “pretending” exercise is to get out of your own way and see a clearer truth.

    Regarding that fear, it is a form of self-sabotage. I would work on it by clearing the fear firstly, using the triune brain method.

  18. Interesting read! Where’s part 3/3 of this article? :-)

    Simon Rose Reply:

    Hi AJ, I did write it and it didn’t get posted for some reason (a year ago). Since then I let go of this blog as we are about to launch a new website (replacing RPT). So lot’s more coming soon. If I do find the article though I’ll post it here.
