How to create an instant healing technique (part 2)

How do you build an instant healing technique?

In my last major article I looked at how simplicity drives the design of a healing technique.  Today I’d like to discuss the how.  How do you create something new.

This question has consumed me for almost 10 years, and I’d like to share some of that journey, or at least the logic, with you.  I think today’s article will be interesting to anyone who has ever wanted to create anything!  It’s not often that we stand back and examine the own creative process.  This is especially true in alternative healing where people claim “divine inspiration” as a substitute for acknowledging their sources of information and ideas.  So, let me share my creative process with you as I prepare to launch our most powerful technique.

Happy New RPT year!

Happy New Year!

I hope all my dear readers had a wonderful festive season and an awesome start to 2012!

If you visit the blog regularly you’ll probably notice I’ve taken several weeks off from writing, despite being in the middle of telling you about our new technique.

There are 2 reasons for this.  First, I needed a break, and we had visitors here.  Second, our home internet connection bombed out.  Of course I could have done more to fix it but I decided to take it as a “sign” to relax for a couple of weeks. (And no, I haven’t started in believing in signs from above, I’m well aware I made up this sign as I went along!)

Well I’m happy to say that I’m back on board, refreshed and relaxed.  Nothing (apart from the cyclone/hurricane I’m expecting) will stop me sharing our awesome new healing techniques with you. And yes, I plan on blogging live from the cyclone like I did last year!

So stay tuned, and above all else, have fun!

A new pricing model for healings – crazy or could this work?

In the past on this blog I’ve addressed questions around being a practitioner like how much to charge, the problems with charging too little (or free) and so on. 

I was thinking about this again today in the light of some really insightful comments that Shane made on a recent post.  One of Shane’s points was that when a patient stands to receive insurance for their injuries, they heal much slower than a patient with the same medical trauma who has no insurance claim.

This is the well known problem of secondary gain, and it is important in RPT, and absolutely central to our New Technique to be launched here in 2012.

Money (paying it or receiving it) has a huge impact on our ability to heal.

This got me thinking, what if there were some way to reward the client for healing faster?

Designing the ultimate healing technique (Part 1: Occam’s Razor)

How do you develop the ultimate instant healing technique?  Where do you even start?  By peeling away the layers of existing techniques to see what makes them tick.  How? Using Occam’s Razor.  Today I take a peek under the bonnet of several leading techniques, and show explain how this helped us develop our new method, to be launched in 2012.

I think the most important things in a healing technique are effectiveness and simplicity, in that order.  More than anything, a technique must work.  Secondly, it should be simple enough that anyone can do it and get results.

Unfortunately the healing techniques available today tend to fail one or the other of these.  Either they don’t work, or they do work but they are far too complicated.

Today I am going to have a no-holds-barred discussion about some of the world’s leading healing techniques: whether they work and more importantly WHY they work.

I’m going to introduce you to Occam’s Razor, a vital tool for peeling away the layers to find the hidden truths.  We’ll discover that most of the healing techniques you have heard of do work (at least as well as a placebo) but none of them work for the reasons you’ve been told.  (And in case you think I’m biased, I’m exposing my own technique, RPT, as well.)

Beware of manifesting your fears – a funny story


I had a really funny experience yesterday that I felt I just had to share.  As well as being funny (you can laugh at my expense), it’s quite informative.  Read about how we manifest our fears (attracting the things we fear most) and how to change that.  Learn from my pain (literally)!

Huge changes coming to RPT!

Dear friends and fans of RPT,

Huge changes are underfoot.

I can’t say too much right now, but just wanted to let you know that we are launching something huge in the coming months.   This may be the end of RPT as you know it, and the beginning of something completely new.

Shhh – it’s still a secret, that’s why I haven’t been blogging lately.  I’m not doing any group emails until things are set in stone. But I wanted you, my dear blog readers, to know what’s been going on.

Here’s what I can tell you:

  • it’s not called RPT because it has nothing to do with reference points;
  • it is not based on any regression technique – you don’t need to “go back” to find the origin;
  • it’s not like anything you’ve seen before;
  • it IS incredibly fast and remarkably simple.

Stay tuned, watch this space and prepared to be inspired and amazed!

Is murder evil?

Last month I wrote an article “Does evil exist?”  It turned into one of the most-read and most-commented articles on this blog.  Today I received a comment from “Jeff” that said:

You are an idiot…evil exists. killing is evil, murder is evil… you are evil for your lying tongue.

Actually that’s the edited version, I removed the F-bombs.  You can read his unedited comments and my replies at the bottom of that “Does evil exist?” page.  In case you are wondering, no I do not allow abusive comments on this blog, but Jeff’s had that perfect combination of (a) raising a valid question and (b) being funny rather than insulting.

Is murder evil?

I’ve already said that I don’t believe that evil exists. It’s just a lazy label that people use when they can’t define why they disagree with something.  If you read my “Does evil exist” article you already know my answer to this question is going to be “no.”   I’m hoping you still read today’s article though to see:

  1. how we explain “why murder is not evil” to an angry teenager;
  2. why people who think evil exists are themselves the source of “evil” actions; and
  3. what I think our responsibility is to educate the community, and why this can really change consciousness of humanity.

Introducing Val Moore, Manager of RPT and new Level 3 teacher

I’d like to take a moment to introduce you to our good fried, Val Moore. Val has been the “boss” of RPT (the one that makes sure things get done) almost since its inception in early 2009. I guess she’s quiet and modest, because recently she contacted students about the teaching changes for Level 3 and the students said “who are you?”  Oops.  So it’s time to make sure you all know a lot more about Val, because you’ll be hearing a lot more from her soon.

Level 3 in Los Angeles 2011

Evette and I have asked Val to teach the upcoming Level 3 course in LA area, August 21-Sept 3,2011.   This decision was made for a number of reasons; partly personal for us (reducing our time spent out of Vanuatu), partly business (we want more local Level 3 teachers instead of just Evette and I traveling).  And most importantly it’s because Val is ready, willing, able and over-qualified to do it.

Val becomes our second Level 3 instructor after Azaris in Norway.  Val is the first English language instructor and is available to teach Level 3 courses in the USA, UK and elsewhere.

Introducing Val, the General Manager of RPT

Val Moore has been the general managing of Reference Point Therapy for the last 2 years. She has worked continuously to grow and promote Reference Point Therapy. She has provided support and guidance to the RPT teachers and graduates.

Val has been a healing arts professional for over ten years. She has been a teacher, practitioner and master of many modalities during those ten years. Upon entering the healing arts she applied her intuitive abilities and her IT background to developing a repository of mind-body information in the form of beliefs and emotional states as they relate to disease.

Personal update: AWOL for 6 weeks, here’s what I’ve been up to!

Dear readers

Please forgive my recent absence without leave.  I didn’t meant to go AWOL on you.  Somehow the last 6 weeks just disappeared in a blink.

This article is a quick explanation and update, as we get ready to re-launch RPT

Level 1 manual

I set myself a project – to re-write the Level 1 manual.  Actually, I’ve been promising to do this for years but it was particularly urgent after the Moscow and Kiev courses in May – where the content I taught was totally different to what the manuals said.  I came home in June and said “OK, I am not doing any marketing, blogging or any of my hobbies until I finished this manual.”

That should have been motivation enough, but somehow a 1-2 week project stretched into 6 weeks and is not finished.  The project has been massive – I under-estimated how much as changed, and also how careful I need to be to get it right.  Still the good news – the manual is 90% done and has been sent to a team of proof-readers for comments.  Next week I’ll get back to work on updating diagrams, incorporating changes and getting that last 10% right.

For those of you who are already RPT graduates, we’ll let you know about ordering an updated manual from your teacher in late August.

Personal updates from Vanuatu

It’s been a while since I’ve had a chance to share about our life in Vanuatu.  Things have been great, if hectic.

The really exciting news is we now have puppies!  Our foster-care dog Bobo fathered 6 pupps with our neighbour’s dog (both are “mostly” German shepherds).  The 6 puppies are very cute, and 2 of them will be come to live with us later this year when their proud mother is ready to release them to us.  It will be really hard to pick just 2 as they are all equally cute. I think I’ve made my choice, it’s just that it keeps changing…

As you can see from the photo, this little fella has a white “V” on his chest (kind of matching my stripey shirt!).  I thought I might call him Victory.

Does evil exist? (or “The Science of Duality”?)

Does evil actually exist?

Can we really truly say that a person, or thing, or idea is “Evil?”

Please take 10 seconds to think about that. Are paedophiles evil? Was Hitler / Stalin / Mao / Pol Pot evil? What about ideas? Can a concept like communism / fascism be called evil?

One thing that’s immediately clear is that the meaning of the word evil is relative. Perhaps Hitler called Stalin evil, and vice versa.

A new psychology book (published June 2011) argues that evil doesn’t exist. Rather it is a symptom of a deeper problem, ultimately caused by trauma.

Today I’m going to explain this psychological theory about evil in more detail. But first I want to make some more general comments about good and evil, and about the relationship between symptoms and trauma.

This will help you to understand how RPT works and how you can easily and safely heal yourself.

The nature of Duality
