“RPT is dead! Long live RPT!”

Dear friends
There used to be many of you following this blog. Now I’m unsure if anyone will read this.
In 2012 a few things happened in my life that caused me to withdraw from blogging. One of the factors was my separation from my then wife, Evette. This was extremely difficult for me due to the highly co-dependent nature of that relationship. It took me several years to really process that break up, to learn all the lessons I needed to learn, and then to be ready for a healthy relationship and ultimately for the new RPT.
It’s difficult to cram five years into a paragraph. Enough to say I have a wonderful wife, Anastasia, an awesome five year old step-son and a gorgeous six months old baby. Life is good.
And what about RPT? The old “Reference Point Therapy” is no more. It died a slow death. I send my gratitude and appreciation to all who followed and supported RPT, all the old trainers and students. I’m aware that I disappeared on all of you. Forgive me…
I have spent the last five years in Russia, learning from great masters there. As I slowly healed myself I learned what was missing from Reference Point Therapy. And as I healed I developed a new and complete technique.
I have been teaching this new method in Russia for the last two years. I’ve waited before announcing it here because I want everything to be “right.” I don’t want or need to rush this. This will be a perfect technique, launched perfectly. Within the next two months I will have a new website and will be introducing you to Rapid Personal Transformation - the world’s fastest and most effective method for creating permanent change.
Fasten your seat-belts, it’s going to be an awesome ride.

Does psychic development traumatize your brain? (part 3/3)

[Technical note. This article was written and set for publication on May 26 2012. For technical reasons it was not posted. I stopped blogging after significant life changes (divorce) in June 2012. I apologise that it took me 5 years to correct this glitch and post this article. I have not edited it in any way. This reflects views I had five years ago. See the next most recent blog article for a better explanation and of what's been going on and what's about to happen with RPT.]

For the last month, over several articles, I’ve been exploring the relationship between trauma and psychic abilities.  I’ve been arguing strongly that trauma is the cause of hearing voices (angels, guides, etc) or indeed believing that the source of spirituality is outside of yourself.

Today we will expand on this discussion, including an important look at what happens on psychic development courses.

The image by the way is my attempt at humor. For many years I taught psychic-stuff in Theta and was told by various people (including my father-in-law) that I was doing the devil’s work.  In fact Evette still gets this from her dad. So let me play with it and let my friend in red signify what I’m talking about, the dangers of my former pastime.

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.

Science proves “psychic” abilities are real – but are they worth the price? (1 / 3)

A recent scientific study has given scientific credibility for the first time to the notion that healers have psychic abilities.  This includes the ability to see auras (clairvoyance) and the ability to feel the another person’s feelings (clairsentience).

This really is revolutionary and will change what some skeptics think about healers. But this news comes at a terrible cost.

You see, psychic abilities have been shown to be a form of synesthesia.  Syne-what you say?  Synesthesia is a fascinating neurological condition.  People with synesthesia (called synesthetes) have a cross-wiring in their brain.  This might enable them for instance to “see” sounds or smells, to “hear” colors and to “feel” other people’s feelings.

People with synesthesia see the world in a different way. Often they go insane. But with time and treatment they learn to use their gift to see the world differently. Many of the world’s greatest artists have been synesthetes. These includes painters David Hockney and Wassily Kandinsky, musicians like Billy Joel, and great inventors such as Nikola Tesla.

According to the University of Granada study, published in the prestigious journal Consciousness and Cognition, healers can in fact see auras because of their emotional synesthesia. Here is a summary of their findings about one of the famous healers in the study:

Many people attribute “paranormal powers” to El Santón, such as his ability to see the aura of people “but, in fact, it is a clear case of synesthesia”, the researchers explain.

The evolution of RPT – a report card

In today’s article I share a brief history of RPT and how it has changed so much in 4 short years. I gave my own self-assessment of my performance (poor) and share my plans for 2012. I also answer your questions about re-certification and what has changed since you first learned RPT.

RPT has changed so much since its inception in 2008 and launch in January 2009.  In fact it has changed SO much that its name is meaningless. In 2008 I thought healing was all about finding the earliest “reference point.” Now I can teach all 3 levels of RPT without using that phrase.

My last group email confused a few students about what version of RPT they learned, or were about to learn. I want to clear up any confusion by sharing a short history of RPT and its evolution through 4 versions. At the end I’ll be asking your opinion about whether to change the name.

I’m going to do something a bit radical and I’m going to give myself a scorecard for each of the 4 variations of the technique I developed.  I’ll tell you honestly how I think I rate as a teacher/developer and get your feedback on this. (Hint: the results are pretty poor, leaving much room for improvement.)

RPT version 1 (2008-2009)

Turn healing “inside out” to make it work

Dear friends, this blog post is an article that was published in the March 2012 edition of Into Light Magazine.  I explain several of the key processes in our Level 2 course. This information has never been published on this blog (or anywhere) before. Enjoy!

Where science meets healing:

biological secrets that re-define your approach to therapy

Healing techniques – all of them – could be thousands of times more effective if turned inside out. Corporate lawyer turned healing researcher and instructor, Simon Rose, explains how.

How you were conceived – those vital first moments when mother met father and sperm met egg – carry a signature that can determine everything about your life, your health and ability to form stable relationships. Those vital moments, known as Key Developmental Events (KDEs), hold the key to a radical new approach to healing which is just beginning to turn the healing world upside down and inside out.

In this article, I’ll show you just one of the ways in which this information turns the healing world upside down and inside out. You can use this information to achieve extraordinary results, whether in your own healing journey or to assist you as a practitioner.

KDEs are not just one more piece of the puzzle, like one more thing on a very long list to clear. Instead, this information can potentially replace years and years of therapy, eliminating the concept of digging through your issues like layers of an onion.

The concept of KDEs comes from amazing biological research in the fields of consciousness or enlightenment research [#1] and the science of epigenetics. I call this field “frontier psychology” and I guarantee that over the next 10 years it will turn every healing technique and hopefully mainstream psychotherapy upside down.

Can one healing technique work for everybody?

It's horses for courses -or is it?

Is it true that no one technique can work for everyone; that we need to “shop around” in order to find what works for us?  I think that most healers believe this, not because it is true but because it is what we’ve been told.  After all, shopping around is good for the economy right?  Well yes, but it is not necessarily good for you or your wallet!

Today I’m going to put forward the radical idea that you don’t have to shop around.  If something “works” to fix problem X in someone else, then it should work for you too.  And if it doesn’t, well it probably never really worked anyway. (See yesterday’s post for my definition of “works,” it may not be as simple as you think).

I received a comment yesterday from a reader, Michaela, who said:

If something “works” for a lot of people, it doesn’t mean that it has to work for me, too. …  Even though I think there’s not “one thing” that works for all people and problems.

I really believe that this is untrue. That if something truly works, it should be universal. In fact I think that’s what “works” should mean.

Think about it like this – if a therapy works on one person in a hundred, and you are that one person, does that mean that it “worked” for you? No, it means that you were lucky and probably the placebo effect helped.  If something works, it really works.  Maybe not 100% but when it fails we should understand why.

For example, antibiotics work.  No one doubts that antibiotics kill bacteria.  But what about when antibiotics don’t work?  Unfortunately, some bacteria have grown resistant to antibiotics and have evolved resistance.  So in this case we can still say antibiotics work, but we acknowledge that there’s a valid exception.  Antibiotics still “work” but the target is getting stronger.

Can we aim for 100%?

Either I am a “moron” or healing doesn’t work!

Here’s the problem: Ninety-nice percept of healing is a placebo.

Very few people can get their heads around this.  I believe that if you can understand this statement you are more likely to be healed or be able to heal others.

The “moron” part of the blog title is what I remember being called by the founder of an international healing technique. (She may have said “idiot.” I did my best to let go of it.)   I’ve written about this before, but it came up again today when a reader asked me how I could say that a healing technique was a placebo given that it “works” for him.  (My reply listed lots of good scientific studies, it’s worth reading it at the bottom of this page.)

It’s both new healing students and experienced teachers that get this all wrong. They don’t understand the placebo effect and as a result they don’t understand the meaning of the word “works.”

Of course healings “work” – if by that you mean that some people get better.  Of course placebos work – it’s well known lots of people given the sugar pill will heal.   But what does it mean to say that something really works?

How your health is driven by hidden survival insticts (theory behind new RPT)

Newton develops theory of gravityMany people accuse healers of pseudo-science, New Age hocus pocus or magical thinking.  And most of the time they are dead right.  So, what can we do to set ourselves apart? How can I make it clear that we are firmly grounded in reality? The answer is to build our healing work on a solid scientific foundation.

I can go further to say that the theory should do more than just “sound” scientific.  it has to make sense.  Every New Age course claims to be “backed by quantum physics.”  A pity that real quantum physicists don’t recognize any of it (good article here from NYT).

No, I think “based on science” has to mean a lot more than that.  It has to mean that I can explain HOW and WHY my method works.

Today I’d like to share at least some of those principles.

Should we give the instructions away for free? Your input needed

What are the benefits and costs of giving your work away for free? Sometimes it makes excellent business sense to do so (as well as being a community service). But would this be appropriate for RPT or our new technique?

These are the issues we consider today in response to this excellent comment from our reader Rob:

Dear Simon

I watch with interest at the latest developments in RPT.

One of your goals is to be available to anyone to use. I think that this is fundamental to any technique/technology/innovation spreading and developing. Any attempt to limit or control/own innovation can only stifle growth.

In the case of EFT, the basic technique was easy to learn and it was offered to the public for free. People could thus take it or leave it, but because of this availability new applications and uses developed quickly. It was to all intents and purposes “open source.”
