SELF CLEARING CHAPTER 14: PROTEST


In the beginning, the free spirit goes out of communication on a
selective basis as a matter of free choice.  This is the
establishment of identity.  He imposes some distance and delays
and barriers to his communication and perception so that he
will not simply be a reflection of everybody else all at once.

Initially, these barriers are selective and he shifts them
around at will.  But they are barriers and as a result, he can
be surprised and be presented with things that he was not aware
of or prepared for.

The early being, before he decays, cannot be harmed or impacted,
but he can choose to reject things on an aesthetic basis, finding
them undesirable for whatever reason.  And so there comes to
be a flux of acceptance and rejection and the possibilities of
communications being blocked or misunderstood.

In the face of having undesirable things pushed at him or 
having his valued presentations rejected by others, the being
may go into protest, objecting to the enforcement or rejection.

If a being's attempts to communicate a protest are blocked, he
will create something to convey his protest in a more physical
manner that is harder to ignore.  And so he creates something
and insists that others observe it, and because it is often
rejected, he begins to create it compulsively.

Protest lies at the root of most compulsions.  In theory, you
might think that acceptance would solve this, but it is a two
way street and half of his protests are due to other's lack
of acceptance of his creations rather than his own lack of 
acceptance of their creations.

Therefore, the protest mechanism must be addressed directly.

Although communication barriers are the initial abberative
factor in a being's existence, they are not themselves aberrations
because they are done by choice.  Protests are the first
actual aberration (lessening of the beings ability and awareness,
in this case because of doing something compulsively).

The keynote here is to spot protests and identify what you are
creating to communicate those protests, and who should have
received and acknowledged the communication.  By bringing these
into view, you should be able to regain control over things
that are being compulsively created.

The limitation here is how deep and early can one reach, because
many of the compulsive creations are in protest of things
that are not only long forgotten but so far out of the sphere
of human existence that they are not really comprehensible
until one has advanced extremely far.

So take this as far as you can at this stage and count on
finding more on a second pass through this book.


14.1 Current Protests


14.1.1a) What are you protesting
14.1.1b) What have you done to communicate that
14.1.1c) Who should acknowledge that

Next run:

14.1.2a) What about you is another protesting
14.1.2b) What have they done to communicate that
14.1.2c) How could that be acknowledged

Then run:

14.1.3a) What are others protesting
14.1.3b) What have they done to communicate that
14.1.3c) Who should acknowledge that
  
  

14.2 Past protests


If the answer to the first question in each set is "nothing",
then skip it and go on to the next set.

Each set is run as follows:
a) spot the protest
b) what did you create to protest that?
c) who should have acknowledged it?

And then look for an earlier similar protest, including past
life protests.  If there is none apparent, then spot another 

protest in the same area.  For example, on "What have you protested
about your body", you would then look for an earlier similar
protest which might also be about your current body or a body
that you had in an earlier life.  If you can't spot any, then
look for another protest about your body or about bodies that
you have had in earlier lives.

If there is something on a topic (such as your body), then 
continue running protests in that area (earlier similar etc.)
until you feel good about the area.


14.2.1a) What have you protested about your body?
14.2.1b) what did you create to protest that?
14.2.1c) who should have acknowledged it?
14.2.1d) Find earlier similar protests and repeat

14.2.2a) What have you protested about your family?
14.2.2b) what did you create to protest that?
14.2.2c) who should have acknowledged it?
14.2.2d) Find earlier similar protests and repeat

14.2.3a) What have you protested about your jobs and work environment?
14.2.3b) what did you create to protest that?
14.2.3c) who should have acknowledged it?
14.2.3d) Find earlier similar protests and repeat

14.2.4a) What have you protested about society?
14.2.4b) what did you create to protest that?
14.2.4c) who should have acknowledged it?
14.2.4d) Find earlier similar protests and repeat

14.2.5a) What have you protested about living things?
14.2.5b) what did you create to protest that?
14.2.5c) who should have acknowledged it?
14.2.5d) Find earlier similar protests and repeat

14.2.6a) What have you protested about the physical universe?
14.2.6b) what did you create to protest that?
14.2.6c) who should have acknowledged it?
14.2.6d) Find earlier similar protests and repeat

14.2.7a) What have you protested about spirits?
14.2.7b) what did you create to protest that?
14.2.7c) who should have acknowledged it?
14.2.7d) Find earlier similar protests and repeat

14.2.8a) What have you protested about God or religion?
14.2.8b) what did you create to protest that?
14.2.8c) who should have acknowledged it?
14.2.8d) Find earlier similar protests and repeat


14.3 Acknowledgment

Protest tends to persist because of lack of acknowledgment.
So lets approach this from the other side.

a) What condition have you failed to acknowledge
b) What condition has another failed to acknowledge
c) What condition have others failed to acknowledge


14.4 Acceptance

a) What protest of another's could you accept
b) What protest of yours could another accept
c) What protest of another's could others accept



14.5 Compulsions

Compulsive behavior is usually started in protest of something.
The actual protest may have begun in an earlier life, so that
you have to use a loose sort of question along the lines of
"what might you protest with that?".  This lets you bring up
odd answers that don't fit your current lifetime but which might
actually be the correct answer in the lifetime in which you 
created the protest.  Very strange answers can show up on this
process.

Once a compulsion starts, the being will accumulate other mental
charge on it in addition to the original protest, so don't be
disappointed if the compulsion doesn't magically disappear
completely on spotting the protest.  But the compulsion will
be weakened considerably and you should find that you have much
more free choice than you did before.  And the later weight that
has built up on it will have a tendency to unravel as time
passes.

For this process, you spot a compulsion and then run the
following on it, over and over until a major release occurs.

a) What might you protest with that?
b) What would be the communication there?
c) Who should acknowledge that?

  
14.6 Chronic Physical Conditions

The same process as given in 14.5 above can also be run on a
chronic physical condition.  This is good for illnesses and
things which should have healed but haven't.  It is not always
applicable to physical accidents although in some cases the
person will have brought about the accident in protest of

something.

Once a physical condition has established itself as chronic,
it tends to get confirmed by other things (everything from
receiving disability checks to using it to gain sympathy).
And there are other factors which can trigger or reinforce
chronic conditions (we will be covering this in other chapters).  
But sometimes this protest button might be the key to resolving
a condition, so give it a try and get as much as you can out
of it.


14.7 Basic Protest

At basic, one protests things that one is forced to or prevented
from being, doing, or having.


14.7.1 Beingness

Here we are referring to things which a person could be, such
as a policeman or a prostitute or a parent etc.

a) What beingness might you protest
b) What beingness could you accept


14.7.2 Doingness

Here we are referring to things that a person might do, such
as skiing or stealing or running etc.

a) What doingness might you protest
b) What doingness could you accept


14.7.3 Havingness

Here we are referring to things that a person might have,
such as money or guns or cars.

a) What havingness might you protest
b) What havingness could you accept


14.7.4 Inhibited Beingness

a) What have you been prevented from being
b) write down any protests you might have about that
c) who should acknowledge that


14.7.4 Inhibited Doingness

a) What have you been prevented from doing
b) write down any protests you might have about that
c) who should acknowledge that


14.7.5 Inhibited Havingness

a) What have you been prevented from having
b) write down any protests you might have about that
c) who should acknowledge that


14.8 Communicating protests


a) what protest could you let another tell you
b) what protest could you tell to another
c) what protest could another tell to others


14.9 Acceptance

Go to a crowded place.

Spot people.  For each one, accept them for what they are
and mentally acknowledge them for being that.


=================



SELF CLEARING CHAPTER 15: PROBLEMS


When we talk about problems in processing, we are not talking
about things that one solves, as in a math problem, but about
persistent difficulties which remain fixed and which one can't
seem to solve.

For example, we are not talking about solving the "problem" of
how to pour the concrete foundation for adding a new room to
a house.  That is something you handle by studying construction
or hiring an engineer.  Instead, we are talking about problems
such as needing to add an extra room but not being able to afford
it.  In this case there is a conflict, with two things in opposition.
The need for a room and the absence of money.

In the sense that we are using here, it is only a true problem
if it is a persistent condition that exists because of two things
in conflict.  

If there were only one rather than two things involved, it would
carry through to its natural completion.  But with two things
in opposition to each other, they hang suspended and cause the
person's attention to fixate.

In theory the person should be able to figure out one side or
the other.  In our example, he would either figure out an alternative
to adding a room or some other solution to his need for extra
space or he would figure out a way to make more money or build
it more cheaply or whatever.  These are the normal mechanics of
living life and solving the one sided "problems" which are no 
more than exercises in how to get things done.

But when two things lock up like this, they become difficult to
confront.  When the person tries to confront the problem of
needing more room, he stirs up his money worries and can't think
about it clearly.  And when he tries to confront his money
troubles, he gets distracted by the worries about needing the
extra room.  And so the problem persists, continually nagging
at him and never really resolving unless some outside force
intervenes.

And he will become habitual on certain kinds of problems, so
that even when a specific situation is solved by gratuitous

fortune, he gets the same kind of mess going again as quickly
as possible.

Furthermore, all logic and appearances to the contrary, if he
has gotten stuck like this you will find that he is himself
creating both sides of the problem.  He is stuck because he
is putting both opposing forces there and holding them in
opposition and sitting in the middle between them.  That is
why he can't think and do something to change the situation.

There is more to discuss here, but we should run some processes
first.

Most of these processes use "What is the problem?" as the first
question.  They are generally simple alternating commands where
you spot the problem and then spot something about the problem
and then spot the problem again etc.  You need to keep spotting
the problem because it will change and your awareness of it
will increase.  Also, an earlier problem that underlies the
first one may come into view, so don't make a point of continuing 
to spot the same problem.


15.1 Confront

This is very simple.  Just alternate the two commands, letting
the problem shift around or letting an underlying problem come
into view as needed.

a) What is the problem
b) What part of that problem could you confront


15.2 Games and Creation

At basic, we are balancing the nothingness with an infinity of
creation.  As a person becomes blocked on direct creation, he still
continues to add to the richness and variety by playing interesting
games.  When he can't do that either, he starts creating problems
compulsively because that at least gives him some kind of game
and creation.

By inventing problems or games, the person begins to create
causatively and can get off of the stuck compulsive creation that
is holding a problem in place.

Each of the following 3 processes has two commands that should
be alternated.

15.2.1a) What is the problem
15.2.1b) Invent a problem of comparable magnitude

15.2.2a) What is the problem
15.2.2b) Invent something worse than that problem

15.2.3a) What is the problem
15.2.3b) Invent a game that would be more interesting than that problem.


15.3 More on confront

15.3a) what problem could you confront
15.3b) what problem could another confront
15.3c) what problem could others confront


15.4 Solutions

If one has a problem of this sort (two things in conflict), and
one "solves" it without confronting or taking apart the source
of the conflict, the solution doesn't actually remove the original
problem but simply buries it.  In our example of needing an
extra room (perhaps one now needs a second bedroom for a child)
and not having enough money for it, one might "solve" it by
borrowing money or even by getting divorced.

This in turn becomes a new fixed idea because the solution must
be held in place to avoid the original problem.  And being
fixed in place, it will in turn become a new problem.  This is
a self perpetuating mechanism which leads to ever more problems.

Let's do some processes on this.

15.4.1a) What is the problem
15.4.1b) What solutions have you had for that problem

15.4.2a) What problem has another had with you
15.4.2b) What solutions have they had for that problem

15.4.3a) What problem has another had with others
15.4.3b) What solutions have they had for that problem


15.5 Incomplete communications

The earliest problems came about through fixed ideas that rest
firmly on the protest button that we addressed in the previous
chapter.  But the protest itself comes about because of 
communication barriers.  And so we can also handle problems
by addressing stopped communications.

15.5.1a) What is the problem
15.5.1b) What communications have you left incomplete about that
   problem

15.5.2a) What problem has another had with you
15.5.2b) What communications have they left incomplete about that
   problem
  
15.5.3a) What problem has another had with others
15.5.3b) What communications have they left incomplete about that
   problem
 

15.6 Responsibility


The person is creating their own problems.

First run:

15.6.1a) What is the problem
15.6.1b) What part of that problem could you be responsible for

And then run:

15.6.2a) What is the problem
15.6.2b) What part of that problem could you admit causing



15.7 Duality

Since we are concerned with problems that have two sides in
conflict, lets practice spotting two things at a time.

Look around the room and spot two objects at a time until you
can comfortably hold two things in your mind at once.



15.8 Running both sides

Now lets look at the two sided nature of problems.  And let's
run back chains of problems because the person creates the
same problem again and again.

This can be run many times, each time taking a problem back
down a chain of earlier similar problems until the chain
dissolves.  Keep running this until you feel freed of the
weight of past problems.

First spot or recall a problem.  Then do the following
steps over and over until either the problem dissolves or
it seems to be getting more solid or has stopped changing
(no new material is coming up).  If this happens (becoming
more solid or not resolving), then spot an earlier similar
problem and run these steps on it.  Keep going earlier similar
until the entire thing comes apart with real relief.

The commands are:
a) state or restate the problem 
b) spot something about one side of the problem
c) spot something about the other side of the problem 


=================


SELF CLEARING CHAPTER 16: MUST HAVE AND CAN'T HAVE


When you want something too much, it tends to run away from you.
When you want to avoid something too strongly, it tends to seek
you out.

Think of being in the water and reaching too hard for something
so that you make a wave which pushes it away.  And then think
of pulling back from something so hard that it creates a suction
which draws it to you.

It is not that you can't like something and get it and have it,
it is that you can't crave something and cling to it without
getting into trouble.  It calls for a lightness of touch rather
than desperation.  The more desperate you are, the harder it will
be.  

You might say that your energy is behaving in a backwards
fashion.  Your attempts to draw in what you "must have" and
to push away what you "can't have" between them create a sort
of unpleasant vacuum.  It is similar to the "ridges" formed
by the opposing forces of a problem (two things pushing
against each other forming a sort of wall) but it is more
dynamic in nature with love, fame, and fortune rushing away
from you and undesirable things continually landing on your
plate.

If you can reach a level of acceptance, of being willing to
have or not have, if you can like and enjoy without craving
and compulsion, if you can be disinterested or walk away from
something without rejection and revulsion, then you can
rise above this mechanism and dissolve it.  That is the real
secret of success.  That is how to lead a charmed life where
good things come your way instead of studiously avoiding you.

One of the best ways to break down a "must have" is to visualize
wasting the item.  Sometimes it might feel like you are feeding
things into a vacuum for a few commands.  And then the barrier
will break down and you will find that its easy to have something
if you will give a little bit of it away.

Then you can go further by visualizing giving it to others
and others giving it to you.

We will run this on a number of common "buttons" (a button is
something you push or that somebody else pushes on you to
bring about a reaction, in other words, a hot topic).

In some cases, the item might be one that you are trying
to avoid instead of something that you are trying to have.
In that case, instead of "wasting" the item, you should
run "having more of" the item as the first process (the other
processes remain the same).  We will discuss that variation
further in the next chapter.  For now, if one of these seems
like something you want to get away from rather than have,

use "have more of" instead of "waste" as the first process
in the area.


16.1 Money

16.1.1

Visualize (invent and create a mockup) of ways to waste money.
Imagine actual physical actions which do waste it.  Keep
mocking these up one at a time as well as you can until something
comes apart or falls away.

If the need and craving were really bad, you will often feel
warmth and energy (a pleasant sensation) as the barrier falls away.

Of course there are a few people who are already in good shape
in this area, in which case the result might not be spectacular
but simply feeling good after a few commands of this.

But note that even many rich people are not in good shape mentally
on the subject of money, being trapped by their fortunes.


16.1.2

Note that money is the "energy" of society and it needs to flow
freely.


Run these alternately:

a) visualize giving money to another
b) visualize another giving money to you
c) visualize another giving money to others


16.1.3

Money is only a medium of exchange.  It is only a symbol or a
substitution for actual work and possessions.  

Run these alternately:

a) What could money be a substitution for
b) What could substitute for money


16.1.4

You need to be free on both accepting and rejecting.  So let's
run:

a) What money could you accept
b) What money could you reject

Note that you can both accept and reject the same thing (in other
words, you could do either one comfortably).


16.1.5

This drill is done by closing your eyes and visualizing clouds
of money around your body.  Then you take the cloud and push
it into the body (don't pull it in, push it in from outside,
just visualize this as well as you can).  After you do a few
commands of this, mocking up a new cloud each time, then you
throw the cloud away and have it explode in the distance.
Again doing it a few times.  Then go back to pushing it in,
alternating these two actions back and forth, a few commands
of each.

If either throwing away the cloud of money or pushing it into
the body seems difficult, then do the opposite command a few
times (push clouds of money into the body until you can throw 
them away or throw them away until you can push them in).

Begin this drill visualizing dirty and degraded money to start with
and later (when you can handle that well) gradually improving the 
quality until you are mocking up extremely nice money (gold or 
whatever).

It is best if you mockup the stuff in a sphere all around you
rather than just in front of you.

Do this until you feel really good, and can have or reject
money comfortably.


16.1.6

Now close your eyes and imagine that you are looking down at
a large city.  Preferably one that you have some familiarity
with and do not have a great dislike for.

Spot accumulations or flows of money within the city.  For each
one, reach down and connect to it, and then disconnect from it.

Initially you might find that these things tend to suck you
in or that you have trouble disconnecting.

Continue this until you can reach and let go of these easily
without any difficulty or urge to remain connected.

Note that a "greedy soul" between lives can often be lead around 
by the nose by mocking up some gold in front of him and leading
him along behind it.  This process should make you immune to
silly tricks like that.

This entire set of processes should be continued until you can
either have or not have money comfortably and do not feel under
any compulsion either to get it or to avoid it.  If you do feel
any craving or compulsion, you should go back and run the above
set of processes again.

After this, you should find that it is easier to think about
money sensibly and that it is less difficult to acquire because
you are no longer driving it away by clutching at it too hard.
A bit of it might even fall into your lap gratuitously.  And
you should no longer be trapped by your own greed.


16.2 Sex and Sensation


Here we are talking about the sex act as a mechanism of strong

pleasure and sensation rather than addressing love and admiration
which are much higher level feelings that will be addressed later.

We are also talking about strong pleasurable sensations in
general and if sex is an inappropriate item (you are too young
or whatever), then substitute pleasure or pleasurable sensations
in place of sex in the commands.

Also, if you are stuck on some drug which gives a powerful
feeling of pleasure or ecstasy, then run this entire set of
processes on it (using ecstasy or some other appropriate word)
either instead of or in addition to running these processes on
sex.

These are run like the ones in section 16.1 above unless otherwise
noted.

16.2.1 Mockup a way to waste sex

16.2.2

a) visualize giving sexual sensation to another
b) visualize another giving sexual sensation to you
c) visualize helping a prospective partner to have sex with someone else
d) visualize helping someone else to have sex with a prospective partner.

Note that c) and d) are not meant to mean participation in an orgy,
They are meant to be selfless aid of another even though you yourself
might desire the prospective partner.

Note that this is a bit different from the way we ran money because 
with sex, either giving or receiving (questions a or b) are both to 
some degree have for self.  You also need to run allowing others to
have so that you can really be free in an area.  Hence, the need for
commands c) and d).


16.2.3

a) What could sex be a substitution for
b) What could substitute for sex


16.2.4

a) What sex or pleasurable sensation could you accept
b) What sex or pleasurable sensation could you reject


16.2.5

Mockup crowds of sexually desirable bodies around you, either
clothed or not, and have them radiate strong sexual sensations
at you.  Begin with dirty and degraded (but still sexy) ones
and gradually work up to ideal ones.

Push the crowds into your body a few times and then throw them
off into the distance and have them explode a few times alternately
as in 16.1.5 above.

Note that some mass or object is needed for this process,
so that if you are running it on something like ecstasy instead
of sex, you should select and mockup and appropriate mass to
contain the sensation and radiate it at you.


16.2.6

Now close your eyes and imagine that you are looking down at
a large city as in 16.1.6 above.

Spot desirable sexual flows and activities.  For each one, reach 
down and connect to it, and then disconnect from it.
 
Continue this until you can reach and let go of these easily
without any difficulty or urge to remain connected.



16.3 Food and Eating

We have bodies that, on a mechanical basis, need to eat.  Since
the need is chronic, it is easy to build up must haves and
can't haves in this area.

16.3.1 Mockup a way to waste desirable food

16.3.2

a) visualize giving desirable food to another
b) visualize another giving desirable food to you
c) visualize another giving desirable food to others


16.3.3

a) What could eating be a substitution for
b) What could substitute for eating


16.3.4

a) What desirable food could you accept
b) What desirable food could you reject

and then also run

a) What undesirable food could you accept
b) What undesirable food could you reject


16.3.5

Now mockup huge amounts of extremely desirable food surrounding
you.  Begin with yummy but "degraded" food (whatever you think
of this way) and gradually improve the quality.

Push them into the body and throw them away as in 16.1.5 above.


16.3.6

Now close your eyes and imagine that you are looking down at
a large city as in 16.1.6 above.

Spot desirable accumulations of food and crowds of people enjoying
eating.  For each one, reach down and connect to it, and then 
disconnect from it.
 
Continue this until you can reach and let go of these easily
without any difficulty or urge to remain connected.



16.4 Work and Jobs

Although you might detest working, work and jobs are something

that most people need to survive.

Here we will use "work" in the process commands because it
isn't always a formal salaried job.  Housekeeping or going to
school or doing charity work or simply having some role or
task which one has undertaken and become responsible for are all
included in this.

Note however that we are aiming this at desirable work rather
than drudgery or slave labor.


16.4.1 Mockup a way to waste desirable work

16.4.2

a) visualize giving desirable work to another
b) visualize another giving desirable work to you
c) visualize another giving desirable work to others


16.4.3

a) What could work be a substitution for
b) What could substitute for working


16.4.4

a) What desirable work could you accept
b) What desirable work could you reject

and then also run

a) What undesirable work could you accept
b) What undesirable work could you reject


16.4.5

Now mockup clouds of work related objects, whatever seems to
represent work for you, beginning with degraded ones and then
moving on to better ones.

Push them into the body and throw them away as in 16.1.5 above.


16.4.6

Now close your eyes and imagine that you are looking down at
a large city as in 16.1.6 above.

Spot places with desirable work that you'd enjoy doing.  For each 
one, reach down and connect to it, and then disconnect from it.
 
Continue this until you can reach and let go of these easily
without any difficulty or urge to remain connected.


16.5 Desirable Possessions

Here we want to run the kind of stuff that you really would want
to have and perhaps can't have.  This could be cars or stereos
or fancy china or jewelry or whatever.

If you have a strong desire for children or pets or even plants
or some other special thing, then repeat this entire set of
processes again using that.

This can also be run on "beautiful things", with the emphasis
on the aesthetics of the objects, especially objects of art.


16.5.1 Mockup a way to waste desirable possessions.

16.5.2

a) visualize giving desirable possessions to another
b) visualize another giving desirable possessions to you
c) visualize another giving desirable possessions to others


16.5.3

a) What could desirable possessions be a substitution for
b) What could substitute for desirable possessions


16.5.4

a) What desirable possessions could you accept
b) What desirable possessions could you reject

SELF CLEARING CHAPTER 17: MUST AVOID AND CAN'T GET RID OF


This is the flip side of the MUST HAVE / CAN'T HAVE difficulty
discussed in the previous chapter.  These are the things that
many people feel they MUST AVOID but can't seem to get rid of.

When we were handling something that a person Must Have, we
had to begin by wasting it to reverse the stuck flow on trying
to get it.  Once that is knocked out, then we run general processes
of accepting and rejecting it to stabilize the person so that
he doesn't start the whole mess over again.

For something that the person is trying to get rid of which 
wouldn't go away (and almost seems like he is pulling in on
himself), the first process has to be the exact opposite.  Since
he is compulsively avoiding, he must mockup ways to have more
of whatever it is until the stuck point dissolves.  Then
we do the rest of it exactly the same as we did for a Must Have
because the remaining steps get the person to a point where
he can accept or reject at will without compulsion.

Refer back to section 15.1 in the previous chapter for general
information on doing these processes.

Again we will work over some common things that people are
often avoiding.


17.1 Drudgery

Here we are looking at the flip side of desirable work.  This
is the stuff that the person doesn't want to do and is not
interested in doing but is made to do by whatever circumstances.

And the more he tries to avoid it, the more it seems to seek
him out.


17.1.1 Mockup a way to have more drudgery.

a) visualize imposing drudgery on another
b) visualize another imposing drudgery on you
c) visualize another imposing drudgery on others


17.1.3

a) What could drudgery be a substitution for
b) What could substitute for drudgery


17.1.4

a) What drudgery could you accept
b) What drudgery could you reject


17.1.5

Now mockup clouds of things involving drudgery around you. 

Push them into the body and throw them away as in 15.1.5 above.


17.1.6

Now close your eyes and imagine that you are looking down at
a large city as in 15.1.6 above.

Spot activities involving drudgery.  For each one, reach down 
and connect to it, and then disconnect from it.
 
Continue this until you can reach and let go of these easily
without any flinch at connecting to them.


17.2 Pain

Most people do not like pain.  In trying to avoid it they often
encounter more.  So let's handle this.


17.2.1 Mockup a way to have more pain.

b) What pain could you reject


17.2.5

Now mockup clouds of things involving pain around you. 

Push them into the body and throw them away as in 15.1.5.


17.2.6

Now close your eyes and imagine that you are looking down at
a large city as in 15.1.6.

Spot people and things involving pain.  For each 
one, reach down and connect to it, and then disconnect from it.
 
Continue this until you can reach and let go of these easily
without any flinch at connecting to them.


17.3 Criticism

Another thing that we often try to avoid and can't seem to
get away from is criticism.

Push them into the body and throw them away as in 15.1.5.


17.3.6

Now close your eyes and imagine that you are looking down at
a large city as in 15.1.6.

Spot activities involving criticism.  For each one, reach down 
and connect to it, and then disconnect from it.
 
Continue this until you can reach and let go of these easily
without any flinch at connecting to them.


17.4 Aggravation

Another thing that we often try to avoid and can't seem to
get away from is aggravation.


17.4.1 Mockup a way to receive more aggravation.

a large city as in 15.1.6.

Spot activities involving aggravation.  For each one, reach down 
and connect to it, and then disconnect from it.
 
Continue this until you can reach and let go of these easily
without any flinch at connecting to them.


17.5 Other Areas

These could be things such as bills or punishments or whatever.

Fill in the blanks with the appropriate item.

SELF CLEARING CHAPTER 18: CAUSE


Early on, the being can act and be at cause over things.  But
sometimes he regrets what he has done and inhibits himself from
further action.  And sometimes he becomes guilty or ashamed
over what he has done and begins to withhold both his communications
and himself from others.  Eventually the being ends up in a state
where he can't act and cannot communicate and is holding
himself tightly under control.


In this chapter we are not worried about ethics or morality or
responsibility or justifications.  Those are more advanced topics,
because you need to confront doing things first before you can
sanely consider what should or shouldn't be done.

And its not just crimes or evil deeds that the person is withholding.
Areas can shut down to the point where the person is withholding
everything in that area, not just bad things but even nice things.

So the emphasis here is on spotting any actions and any restraints.

As we did with simple communication barriers, our intention here
is to knock out the "subconscious" barriers to action.  We want
an individual to be capable of doing anything without buried
inhibitions coming into play.  But this does not mean irresponsibility.  
It simply means that the choices and actions are conscious instead 
of hidden.  Just because you can do anything does not mean that
all things are desirable or helpful.

As a further reassurance, let me point out that the fact of
withholding is one of the strongest factors that causes a being's
ethical sense to deteriorate, and that the dark weight of regret
leads to further mistakes which the person regrets even more.
In other words, there are feedback effects at work here.  Our
intention is to break out of a declining spiral where the
person becomes ever less capable of acting.

 
18.1 Willing to Do

Let's start very simple.  As always, these commands are alternated
over and over.

a) What would you be willing to do.
b) What would you be willing to have another do.
c) What would you be willing to have others do.


18.2 Willing to Reveal

a) What would you be willing to reveal.
b) What would you be willing to have another reveal.
c) What would you be willing to have others reveal.


18.3 Finding out

a) What shouldn't people find out about you
b) Who would it be safe to tell that to
c) What shouldn't people find out about another
d) Who would it be safe for them to tell that to
  

18.4 The Body

18.5 Family

This could be parents, relatives, spouses, children, or even
members of a close knit commune that you are a part of.  If 
some specific one of these is especially charged up (continually
fighting with the wife or a parent or whatever), then use it
in place of family and run that first before running family in
general.  Note that you should use a general form ("a wife")

rather than your specific wife right now in case their are
earlier similar things that might need to come up.


18.5.1a) What have you done involving family
18.5.1b) What have you kept yourself from doing involving family

18.6 Work

This is the area of work and jobs and group activities where you
have some responsibility to get something done.  It includes
housework and taking care of the children etc.  Again, if a
specific area is particularly charged up, you can run it first
before running work in general.

  involving work


18.7 Society

18.7.5b) What have another or others kept hidden about themselves
  involving society


18.8 Thought and Creativity

This area is very intimate to a being.  Though includes ideas and
ideals and moves into the areas of aesthetics and creativity.
It can also include ethics and knowledge and understanding.


18.8.1a) What have you done involving thought or creativity
18.8.1b) What have you kept yourself from doing involving thought

18.9 Other Areas


Areas where you are having trouble and difficulties often include
harmful acts, inhibited actions, and withheld secrets.

So if there is a particular kind of person or thing or area that
is giving you real difficulty, fill it in the blanks and run
this set of processes against it.

You can also run this on other general areas such as lifeforms
or possessions or spirits or religion or even (for the advanced 
student or on a second pass) on creation and destruction.

18.11 Forgiveness of Past Existence

Of course you might have run some past life material on the
above processes.  It was neither encouraged nor discouraged.

But here we are interested in things that are out of your
conscious recall but perhaps sitting in the background just
out of sight.

We have all existed for a long long time and have done just
about everything good and bad.  Most of it is buried out
of sight even on people who remember many of their past lives.

The key to really blowing this apart is forgiveness, for in
forgiving others you forgive yourself as well.

Here we are not limiting the question to things that you remember
doing or even to things that you actually did.  Imagination
and speculation are quite valid here and you might even need
to say something that you really never did do just to get it
off of your plate.

This is the big one and you should push it to a major feeling
of relief and freedom.

a) What terrible thing might you have done
b) Imagine being forgiven for that
c) What terrible thing might another or others have done to you
d) Decide (as best you can) that you forgive them for that
e) What terrible thing might another have done to another or others
f) Imagine that their victims have forgiven them for that


If you work over every horrible thing you have heard of or can
dream up, you might be able to reach a Christ-like state of total
forgiveness.  But that might be too much to expect on a first
pass, in which case it can be left for a second run through 
this book.
