The Personal Peace Procedure

The Personal Peace Procedure on a List of Specific Events

The main process

We have now arrived at the main process for which we have been preparing. Simply put, we will apply The Personal Peace Procedure, one-by-one, to a list of your specific events that have caused you emotional angst in the past. This will aid you in “cleaning your emotional house” so that your emotional burdens, and the physical ailments they cause, can fade. 

This process is designed to enrich your communication with The Unseen Therapist and requires your practice and diligence. The more you practice, the better your communication. Only you can walk through these doors for yourself and, again, your ultimate results are limited only by your motivation. Here’s what you need to do. 

First,

because this process is likely to also bring you relief from physical symptoms, take an inventory of your body and make a list of every physical symptom you have. This includes pains, disease symptoms and even discomforts that may come and go. As instructed previously, assess their current intensities on a scale of 0-10 where 10 is maximum intensity and 0 is no intensity whatsoever. These are your BEFORE measures. For future comparison, write down these intensities next to your descriptions of the physical symptoms. No need to be absolutely accurate here. Your best estimate will do. 

Next,

make a list of at least 30 bothersome specific events. 50 is better. 100 is better still. Make sure each specific event in that list reflects the instructions given previously under “Identify a bothersome specific event from your past” (the further back in time, the better). Be sure to limit each specific event to one emotional crescendo. If a specific event has, let’s say, three crescendos, you may divide that specific event into three separate events, each to house a single crescendo. 

As with the physical issues, write down the intensity of each of the emotional crescendos on a 0-10 scale. Do this by running each specific event movie in your mind and focusing on the emotional crescendo as it occurs NOW. These are your BEFORE measures of the emotional crescendos and you can write down the estimated numbers next to the corresponding specific events. Again, we are not interested in the intensities that existed when the specific events actually happened. Your current intensities are what need to be resolved because it is your current intensities that are of concern. 

If you have repressed your intensities and can’t assess the number, then guess at its 0-10 impact on you. That will suffice for later comparison purposes. 

Next,

do The Personal Peace Procedure, as previously instructed, on each specific event. 

Although you can do as many specific events as you want, and as often as you want, you may want to pace yourself at first. Thus, I suggest that you do up to three specific events per day and leave fifteen minutes or more between each one. You are looking for quality here, not speed, so be sure to do them with care. 

After each use of The Personal Peace Procedure on a specific event, run the movie again to test your intensity on the emotional crescendo as it exists NOW.  If you guessed at any previously repressed event, then guess again at its 0-10 impact on you. This is your AFTER measurement. Please make note of it next to your previous BEFORE estimate. 

Now compare your BEFORE and AFTER measurements. If the intensity of your crescendo, or your guess at it, improves, that’s wonderful. If not, no problem. Just proceed to the next specific event. If need be, you can come back to that specific event later. Also, it may subside as you run The Personal Peace Procedure on other specific events. As discussed, that’s because other specific events, or parts thereof, may be related to the current one. 

Next,

after 30 specific events go back to your list of physical symptoms and check out their 0-10 intensities. Chances are, some have begun to fade or become extinct. This is a sign of progress. Also, notice other things that may have changed in your day-to-day activities. Examples: Have your angers or resentments subsided? Do you now get along better with that irritating Uncle Charlie or that bothersome co-worker? Are you more at ease in social situations? Less anxious? How is your performance at work, sexually or playing tennis? Have your allergies improved? All of these and thousands more possibilities are the result of the peace that The Unseen Therapist is providing. 

Next,

proceed with the same process for the next 30 specific events. Keep doing this until all of your specific events have been offered to The Unseen Therapist. Be alert as to the ease and comfort you are developing with the process. Eventually, you will create your own methods of communicating with and enjoying this endless source of love. 

Finally,

after you have finished your list of specific events you may wish to go back over them again. Your first time through was as a beginner. Now you have more seasoning and so your second try should bring more benefits. Add to your list other specific events that may have come up during your first attempts.

We turn now to some closing thoughts and, for those wanting more than this introductory book can offer, some pointers regarding "Where to From Here."
