Q: Will PSYCH-K® make me forget or erase my past?
A: No, PSYCH-K® cannot erase or make you forget your past, nor is this the goal of PSYCH-K®. The subconscious mind is the storehouse of all that has ever happened in your life and it cannot be erased. However, utilizing PSYCH-K® shifts the emotional charge associated with past events to a place of neutrality. The “record” of any and all events still exists, but the emotional charge tied to the event is greatly or entirely diminished. Additionally, new neural pathways appear to be generated in the brain allowing the “hard drive” of the subconscious to theoretically re-route around the challenging or distressing events so they aren’t being accessed as they once were.
Q: Will other people notice I have changed after using PSYCH-K®?
A: When we change ourselves, others interact with us differently. It may appear that they have changed to us. In reality, we have only made changes within ourselves. If I had previously refused to wear orange, and every one of my friends knew I detested this color, they would likely be on the alert and never give me anything orange. If I were to change and find orange to be an agreeable and likeable color, all my friends would be surprised at first. They would then be released from the fear of giving me anything which had orange in it as a gift and could relax about this subject around me. They would behave differently because I had made a change. This can be applied to any topic. Once I make a shift about anything, others somehow sense the shift and behave differently around me. Pretty neat, right?
Q: How long does a PSYCH-K® Balance last?
A: PSYCH-K® Balances seem to last until they are no longer useful to the subconscious mind, or until you decide to balance for a new goal which supersedes the previous goal. Life is an evolutionary process, so what you balance for at one point in your life may be inappropriate at a later time. You will know this to be true when you feel ready to make a change in your life. PSYCH-K® enables you to consciously direct key changes in your life with ease and flexibility.
Q: Does PSYCH-K® work for everyone?
A: NO, PSYCH-K® is not a “perfect fit” for everyone and that’s OK! Sometimes other modalities will be a better first step. At a later time, when a person has come to a place in their life where they are open, curious and ready to explore what PSYCH-K® has to offer them it is a better fit. There is an element of Divine timing for all of us. When we are naturally or intuitively drawn to subject matter then we are usually ready to begin learning more about it and employing it. Things “work” for us when we want them to work!
Q: Will PSYCH-K® fix me forever?
A: It is impossible to know this answer for you. All I can tell you is that this is the most dynamic set of processes I have ever used in my life! There is incredible brilliance and vast diversity available when you understand what to do and how to employ the processes. I haven’t found anything in my life I can’t use this work with. Everything I use it with shifts. My old life patterns are hardly recognizable to me. I make changes faster and faster now and my life continues to become more magically wonderful in every way. If I can do it, anyone can.
Q: Is PSYCH-K® hard to do?
A: PSYCH-®is a simple and beautiful modality to learn. Like anything worth doing it takes some practice to get a handle on it and do it well and comfortably. Most people get too worried about doing it “right.” If you can read and follow directions you can do PSYCH-K®. The really wonderful thing about PSYCH-K® is that you don’t have to know the answers. All you have to know is how to read and facilitate the process from an instruction card. Your partner has the answers they need from within him/herself.
You can’t really screw this up if you tried. The worst thing that would happen is nothing. As you work with yourself more and work with others more you will find that you begin opening up your intuitive abilities more and you will be able to offer these ideas for your Partner to entertain. However, in PSYCH-K® we never, ever impose our insights or ideas on another! We always work with their wisdom from within their own being.
Q: Can I change other people with PSYCH-K®?
A: Fascinating question isn’t it? The answer is just as fascinating. We may be able to engage another person in a PSYCH-K® Balance. If it is something they agree will benefit them, then a change may take place. This is only if they want to accept the change and it is their best and highest good. PSYCH-K® is a set of spiritually based processes. We can never do anything without the others consent and agreement at their highest level of knowing. There are essential spiritual safeguards in our existence. Our highest knowing will never allow anything to occur with anyone, including ourselves, unless it is part of their/our highest and best.
Q: Can I use PSYCH-K® with animals?
A: This is a bit like the above answer about using PSYCH-K® with other people. There is a process of allowing one person to represent the sub-conscious read out of another, regardless of whether it is an animal or a human. This is called Surrogation. As a surrogate one can represent the subconscious readout of another, only if it is in their best and highest good and only if permission is granted by the highest level of knowing for both individuals from both directions. Suggested changes can only occur if allowed at the highest spiritual levels of knowing. If it is in the best and highest good of an animal to allow PSYCH-K® processes to assist them then yes, we can work with animals; but only if permission is granted.
Q: Can I use PSYCH-K® with children?
A: YES, PSYCH-K® is great for working with children. They often times enjoy the processes more than other modalities because there is more doing than talking. Kids like to be active. Keep your sessions to only one or two Balances at a time; then let the child go play. Children have short attention spans and forcing a child to do Balances is never appropriate. It needs to be their idea once PSYCH-K® has been introduced to them. If they want it they will ask for it. A child can fully participate in PSYCH-K® at about 7 years of age. I’ve worked with some younger children, but each child is different and their ability to do PSYCH-K® is totally dependent on whether they have the ability to muscle test reliably and keep their attention present long enough to remain engaged.
Q: Can I help someone who doesn’t know how to do PSYCH-K®?
A: Of course you can. PSYCH-K® is such an easy process to facilitate with other people. It is appropriate to offer some explanation to your friend or colleague and let s/he know what PSYCH-K® is about and how it can be of benefit. Once you know how to facilitate the processes and you feel comfortable working them it is time to extend you helping and loving heart to others. Many people attend the 2 day Basic Workshop and begin using the processes with their client’s, friends, and family the very next day.
Q: Can I facilitate PSYCH-K® without attending a PSYCH-K® Workshop?
A: This is a very important question! The answer is NO, and here is the reason why. While PSYCH-K® is simple there is a great deal of understanding and wisdom that is missing if you try and do the processes from watching a demo or attending an introductory lecture. There is NO WAY to impart all the necessary information shared during 13 hours of class time and squeeze it into a 30 minute or 1 hour presentation. It’s a crazy idea as I’m sure you can agree!
You wouldn’t sit down with a pilot behind the controls of a plane for 30 minutes and assume you had enough information to fly the craft would you? Many people find it quite helpful to attend the workshop once, go home and assemble the bike so to speak, and then come back and revisit the class to get more tips on how to do a better job of riding the bike. I ALWAYS encourage students to come back and review. It is absolutely PRICELESS in regards to what you will gain in successive classes.
Q: What will I get from reviewing a PSYCH-K® Workshop?
A: Another set of keys to the wisdom within! While there are no new processes, you will see the same information from a different perspective. You will hear the information with a fresh set of ears. You will have different experiences with the students in the class room and you’ll be assisting them with challenges which are different from those in your first workshop. You will make incredible gains in your level of comfort and ease in facilitating. What once felt strange and unfamiliar will feel much more natural and a part of you. Most reviewing students say things like, “You didn’t say that before.” This is because there is so much information to absorb that often times one misses elements the first go around. Usually the student heard it before; it just didn’t register very deeply.
Q: How soon after I attend the Basic workshop can I help people?
A: As soon as you complete the workshop you will have all the tools from the Basic Workshop you need to get started. Proficiency will be gained the more you work the processes with people (and yourself). The faster you dive in and start having fun the more likely you are to keep using the processes. The greatest disservice you can do yourself is to go home and wait a week before doing any balances. A week becomes a month, then a year. I recommend doing 2-5 Balances per day. The more comfortable you feel, the more you’ll enjoy the benefits of PSYCH-K®.
Q: Is there any other comparable system out there?
A: If there is I haven’t found it. There are other modalities available that can be effective with the subconscious mind. As you can imagine there are different tools for different jobs. PSYCH-K® has taken a few elements from some very effective and well know modalities and combined them in a very unique and effective manner. Yet, PSYCH-K® is very much its own special system. PSYCH-K® is fast and keeps the focus on and the power within the hands of the person seeking the change, rather than the facilitator or practitioner. In other modalities the practitioner is doing something “on” or “to” you the client. In PSYCH-K® it’s all about the Partner drawing out their own inner wisdom for the answers they are seeking.
Q: What if I don’t think I have any inner wisdom?
A: All I can tell you is that you, and you alone, know exactly what you need to help yourself. There really isn’t anyone out there who can tell you how to fix, repair, heal, mend, etc. whatever you perceive is challenging you. The best they can do is guess what to tell you based on what they have been exposed to and learned in THEIR life. Who better to have the answers to YOUR life than YOU! You are the one who has lived your life; no one else has lived it for you. You absolutely do have the answers. The processes of PSYCH-K® help you find those answers and bring them to the surface so you can make the changes YOU seek to make in YOUR life.
Q: Are there any side effects from using PSYCH-K®?
A: YES, Your life improves! Sometimes there are old things, habits, programs, even people that need to fall away for new growth to manifest. Most of the time this is not new information! If you want to hold on to the old rather than transform it or let it go, one could say that it can be uncomfortable or even painful. Pain is only felt because of resistance. If you are in the flow of change and move with it, there is no resistance, therefore there is no pain. If you are still interested in holding on to old patterns, you aren’t really ready for the kind of experience PSYCH-K® will bring into your life.
Creating greater disparity in your life can also cause pain. Here the resistance is found in experiencing the disparity and either not being willing to make a decision to go one way or another, or holding on to the past ways after knowing there is something greater calling you. There really is no sense in keeping your light from the world. Let your light shine so you can share who you are with the world and brighten it for so many others.
Q: Does it hurt to do PSYCH-K®?
A: NO. In PSYCH-K® we utilize the natural biofeedback process called Kinesiology or Muscle Testing. When done properly, Muscle Testing is very gentle and kind. We apply a light amount of pressure (typically to an extended arm) just enough you can feel your muscle hold strong, or let go. We are actually only seeking to feel the change in the signal being sent from the brain through the muscle so very little pressure is actually used.
Muscle Testing has been done very poorly for many years by numerous people because it has been so badly misunderstood. It has also been used to prove agendas of the practitioner in which you can literally see the practitioner force the persons arm, possibly hurting the partner, during the muscle test. If someone is hurting your arm with Muscle Testing leave immediately as fast as you can. They only have one goal in mind and that is to convince you to do something that benefits them.
Properly performed, no more than one pound of pressure is ever needed for muscle testing. I spend a lot of time with my students learning to do Muscle Testing properly so they have reliable results they are sure of. My students tell me they have never experienced muscle testing the way I teach it and they are quite pleased and thrilled with the experience. I’m sure you will be too!
Q: Can I do PSYCH-K by myself or do I have to work with a Partner?
A: One can learn how to do self-testing fairly accurately so you won’t have to work with a Partner. This is taught the afternoon of the second day. However, there are down sides to doing self-testing. You definitely lose the benefits of an objective observer. Sometimes we can fool ourselves as to a test result, especially if we are invested in a particular outcome. Working with another person can certainly help keep one more honest about their responses. The other person can certainly provide confirmation or call you out if they feel like you are cheating yourself of an accurate answer. We always use the phrase, “Stay Open and Curious!” This applies to self-testing as well as working with a partner.
Q: How long have you (Karen) been doing PSYCH-K®?
A: I studied PSYCH-K® with Rob Williams and Bruce Lipton in July 2009. I was so blown away by what I experienced (and by what others were experiencing) that I wanted as much as I could get as fast as I could get it. I was like a duck in water. I knew PSYCH-K® was what I had been called to learn and share with the world. It was as though I had a switch turn on inside me and I couldn’t stop myself.
I studied all the classes offered at least once within 5 months and was repeating the classes as often as I could to deepen my growth and understanding. In March 2010 (8 months later) I took my first Certification Training to become an Instructor for the Basic Workshop. In July 2010 I was certified to teach the Professionals’ Course. By March 2011 I was certified to teach the Advanced Integration Workshop. By August 2011 I was certified as a Brainmapping Core Consultant by the Center for Cognitive Enhancement because I could see the writing on the wall. People were going to want Brainmaps and I wanted to make sure they could have them! In October 2011 I was certified to teach the newly revised PER-K® program for businesses.
I’ve been teaching as much as I can since my first certification. For me teaching is my full time vocation. I’ve studied (and continue to refresh) with the Crème de la Crème so I can pass on the very best information to my students. I am absolutely passionate about PSYCH-K® and the opportunities it presents for people to become self-empowered and manifest the lives they dream of having.
I am absolutely sure that the only thing preventing us from achieving our dreams is the prison of our limiting beliefs. Once we bust through these limiting beliefs we are capable of anything and everything as Spirit totally supports us. I truly believe this, as I have proven it to myself, time and time again. Come on and join us. I’m sure you’ll be pleased with what you gain!
