Abuse Effects Removal BOOK
This section covers two points. The first is that there are different ways energy gets stuck in the body
and energy fields. and therefore, there needs to be different
approaches in removing them.
I've described in Part-1 how decisions I, myself,
made held in energy charge. Now I'll explain why some embedded
energy just doesn't come out with kinesiological treatment to the
nervous system. And why it does come out with a "direct energy"
accessing method like Netherton's.
The second point relates to the difference between behavior
modification therapy and releasing therapy.
I said at the end of Part-1 that a lot of people
try to change their behavior by attempting to program a new,
positive belief system on top of an older, negative programmed one.
People mistakenly think they are "changing" the old belief system
because they think both belief systems are in the brain.
But we find that's not factually correct. They
are putting in a second belief system side by side with the old.
And the old still remains, even though their conscious mind "prefers"
to follow the new one.
While the new program resides in the brain, the old one
is located in another part of the body.
When there's no stress, the
person might be able to follow
the new program. But which one they'll follow in times of stress
depends on how "another part of them" views their current life.
"really" happens to change our reactions to
circumstances is we just don't feel the need to get upset, fearful
or angry about the same kinds of things.
But if we still get triggered in the same old ways,
then we know that the old belief system is still strongly embedded
inside us in a physical way.
Part-2, explains the "embedding" or "implanting" of belief systems
made of energy, ones that are not made of neuron patterns in the brain.
This, Part-2, is a very long article. The major
points are covered in the first 25%-30%. Then I add a lot of
details. You can either check on the main points or study a
lot of the whole method.

Please note: This section was written particularly to
introduce Specialized Kinesiologists to the Netherton Method.
It speaks of experiences in "Past Lives." Both Netherton
Therapy and Specialized Kinesiology refer to these time frames as
being earlier episodes than those in this lifetime, episodes which
have already set up psycho-somatic patterns that get re-emphasized
during our episodes of prenatal, birth, infancy and childhood. It
simply takes Freudian and Reichian principles "back further."
If you have a problem with this concept because you don't believe
in reincarnation, yet you would also like to investigate this kind
of therapy, you may consider the term "Past Lives" as a technical
reference. It simply refers to other parts of your "pattern."
These are whole scenarios
of the same nature as those episodes you may remember in this life, but they are located
deeper in our "creative unconscious." It does not matter if
past lives really exist; if you do either of these therapy
processes, you will get good results.

First I want to share another observation
about the benefits of
Specialized Kinesiology (SK), which I think
is noteworthy in itself. All of my 13 clients who'd had a lot of
(including 6 practitioners) were amongst the very best Netherton releasers.
They all got in touch with their past experiences very easily and could
immediately see the step by step details. They did the translating
from energy to sentences very well.
So this is another benefit we get from receiving SK.
There's an improved connection from conscious to subconscious mind, and
from conscious mind into the body. In general, the mind is rather clear
in that regard. All that neurological "clean up" is very effective.
And from this removal of a lot of "disorganized" mental activity as well
as some body blockages, they were, as compared to the general populace,
rather open individuals. And, of course, they understood about past
energies recreating themselves in current life.
But every one still had a very large amount of old
energy stored in their bodies that came out with the Netherton method.
And they had "foundational" psychological issues that were still
active, coming out of those tensions and emotions still in the body. Just
doing the SK had not cleared those energies.
Going back to what I said about Structural Integration
helping SK do more, these energies weren't still there just because the
fascia had not been opened. Bodywork definitely helped. But I did a lot
of it for all but one of these folks and the issues and energies still
remained until we did the Netherton approach.
So there's another mechanism that has to do with how
the energy was put into the body in the first place.
The conclusion I draw from this is that the
Netherton-Structural Integration-Reichian method, and the Specialized
Kinesiology method are two therapies that work together. But they don't
do exactly the same things.
I am pleased to report that at least one SK
practitioner I treated has been using a lot of the Netherton approach with
clients. I'd like to see more of that. And I think it's less of a job
for an experienced SK practitioner, with all their bottles and testing
protocols, to learn some Netherton techniques rather than the other way
around. I would also like to see some practitioners of each working
are the two major
points of this section. They relate to "how" the past energies got stuck in the body.
The first point is, "Who 'originally' put in the belief system." And
the second point is, "Where does the original belief system reside inside
us, and how did it get there?"
Remember from Part-1 that SK released energies stuck in my body, from when
I had reacted to certain adult life experiences. I, myself, had made decisions
as an adult. They were about
the circumstances of those times. And those decisions were still in the unconscious part
of my brain. The original decisions in 1985, or 1997, were put
into neurological patterns. I'd then never released them, never turned off the
neurological hook-ups. These decisions had become
blockages on the road of my already developed life path. They were
unconscious mind belief systems made during stress that I'd never "cleared
Those neurological patterns had also been keeping certain muscles tight
throughout my body, just as I had tightened up in 1985 and 1997. And
within the muscles, there was the emotional energy that I'd had when I
made the decision. I was still carrying around the physical and
energetic experiences of those times, along with the decisions I'd made.
The SK got me "back on track." It removed those decisions from
my brain patterns and thus, it released the muscle tension and the emotional energy that had
gotten trapped in me during the stress. Releasing the nerve
pattern turned off the continuing muscle contraction that was always going
on, and that released the
So the original decision was put into the brain patterns, and it was done
But for life long restricting "patterns," the source of our stuck energies is
different in two ways.
First, "Who put in the decision?"
I have found that virtually ALL the long term negative patterns we
have were really forced upon us by the actions that other people did to
us, and by the "words" or attitudes about us that they said or felt
at the time of their action. What they did and what they
said forms the foundation of the repeating pattern. And they did it while
our own attention was on something else.
Their actions, and their attitudes and statements give us the commands.
The circumstance is the script, their energies form the victimizer role,
and our own overwhelm, tension and fear forms the victim role.
even in the same episode of the script, we ourselves may think the same ideas
they had. In fact, some
people start off in the Netherton work thinking this is the source of
their issue; that they made a decision about how hopeless something was,
But I have to correct them. I ask them to look at the
episode in their mind's eye and see if the person harming them was also
saying the same thing, but in a "You such and such," instead of an "I such
Invariably, they say yes and can see the moment in the
episode where it was happening. Then they process out the material with
the technique and I can feel that it actually leaves the body. Before,
when they were saying the words as if they themselves originated them, I
would feel no energy release happening.
So the original implantation was made by the other person.
The decisions to have this kind of thing happen to us, repeatedly since
then, were never made by us to begin with. Other people's
words, and actions, tell us "what the story is" and even tell us that the
event will repeat.
more thing. Just like what Specialized Kinesiology testing shows us, there
were a number of the same kind of episodes, with different people in
different times playing out the same script. There are many remakes
of the same movie.
Second, where "are" the energies of the original movies located inside us,
and how did they get there?
In the green section above, I wrote about
changing these belief systems. Both SK and the
Netherton-Reichian-Bodywork method I employ include releasing the old
belief system as a major element in this "changing" process.
Yet there is a common misunderstanding by the general populace that I wish to
point out. To bring us all up to speed, I want to start by pointing out the need
for releasing the old beliefs in the first place.
Many people, perhaps most,
(and a lot of psychological therapists) believe that their issues were
caused by general patterns of up bringing or by specific decisions they
made sometime in childhood or later.
I can say from experience that these are part of it. And one can work
with them in psychotherapy and spiritual counseling.
However, the original implantations - into
the body - are not the mental conditionings we get from "training" when
we're older children or teenagers. That conditioning happens later
than when the original tapes went into the unconscious,
at a time the person can remember.
These more original
"implantations" were, in this lifetime, put in
at a very early age, before we can remember, and before we had a
conscious reasoning mind to filter what those other people were saying.
Many happened at different times of the pre-natal, at birth, and some in
infancy. They go right into the subconscious mind and act as commands and
belief systems. We don't realize they're there because we can't
view them with our normal way of looking, even with Freudian
So this kind of conditioning is pretty hard to change
since we don't even know it's there, no less that we don't have a "mental"
way to find and change it. We might understand that we want to change the
conditioning that happened later, and we'll practice doing the better
behavior. Yet the hindrances from those earlier times seem to keep
dragging us down.
Now, besides reducing stress, as I described, SK can indeed change mental
patterns which we could call belief systems about how our life is.
This "diffusion" as it is called, does two stress removal things at the
same time. It releases the tension and stuck emotional energy that
we have been carrying around from the stressful incidents. And it
removes the attitude (or belief system) that would cause us to react in
stressful ways in the future.
But there is more to the belief system and attitude than the mental pattern. There is a very
large physical component. And for these defining "episodes," the
physical component contains the "original" defining belief system.
The mental thought pattern comes later. The mental pattern is not
holding in the energy. The energy got implanted first.
This is the second key point
of this section. And in the rest of this long article, I'll explain more and more how this works.
significance of the physical element itself. The
major reason these body embedded belief systems drag us down is because
they were put there with a lot of simultaneous physical energy. They
have more power than a verbal instruction or mental decision that comes
of how the world looks and how we should behave in it is directly embedded
inside the structural tightness and the emotional energy. The
instruction was not first implanted in the brain.
So there's nothing that can be "changed"
It is not like the feelings we ourselves generate, and the patterns of
thought we build, when we are consciously learning about something.
With these experiences, where the energies went directly into us and the
belief system sentences were said by someone else, there's nothing but an
"energy packet" in there. It's just an absorption of energy that
occurred in a past experience that we went through physically.
It just so
happens that the energy we absorbed included the psychological and
emotional components of people in the scenes as well as what was
physically going on, too.
We can't change how these packets are made
up any more than we can change a videotape movie in our VCR.
A lot of times, like in the prenatal and birth,
there's a lot of physical pressure and squeezing. And with that, there's
a lot of strong emotional feelings we quite literally "picked up" from our
mothers. These physical actions activate when we get "triggered" into the
psychological kinds of feelings Mother had. So the physiological reaction
we feel can be fairly strong.
In past lives, we die, and the blows that kill us, plus the
weakening and contracting life force, will also get activated and give us
pains, weakness and an action of withdrawal. It all activates physically
when the psychological part resonates with what we ourselves are feeling
about the present circumstance.
So we're dealing with something like a big splinter we
picked up, or a giant parasite with a fixed reaction to certain kinds of
circumstances. Activate the parasite in those times of your life by
having a serious fear, and the old material in the energy packet fills
your muscles, your organs, and your thought patterns and speech.
On the other hand, the later
mental conditioning is
"not" one of these packets put into the body with a lot of
energy. It's verbal direction that the person understands with the
intellect, and follows, (liking it or not).
But the words coming out of the two kinds of experiences
are indeed the same. What Mother said in the prenatal, what she might
have exclaimed to the child of 2 months old, and what she expressed
to the child of 8, are the same sentences, the same energy forms. But in
the very early times, these words did not go through the intellect as a learning
and deciding experience.
The more original energies, with their words, were
physically pasted on, and pasting on doesn't lend itself to reprogramming,
even with brain accessing techniques.
That's why the old conditionings still hang on even though we've made
headway into new behaviors and we may have done repeated SK diffusions.
As I said, in these kinds of experiences, the mental patterns come out of
the physical energies and their words.
Let me add to this "pasting" idea. I'll start by repeating my major
point, then add details.
The original implantations, even those of other people's
words during the event, are not held there because we made a
mental, emotional decision to hold them. They were "direct placements" of
the other person's energy, right into our flesh. And the other
person placed them there.
So it doesn't make much sense to try to remove
either the instructions or the energy packet based on the premise that we ourselves
locked them in there with our mental decision.
The energies were pushed into the collagen fibers of the soft
connective tissue, and into the "micro-tubules" elsewhere in the flesh. It
happens both because of our own contracting muscular tension, with fear
and protection at the time, and because of the physical force that the
other person is applying in the form of shaking, or a blow or stab.
So none of the stuff from the other person is our doing.
We are busy tensing up and protecting. The other person is making the
statements. And once they are in the unconscious mind, as SK people know,
the statements act as commands for all future behavior. But "these"
statements reside in the flesh.
For example, if, while spanking a child, a parent says,
"You're bad! You never do anything right. You'll never amount to
anything," that's a program being pushed into the body flesh.
SK practitioners know about energies stored in the body.
And with their methods, can release nerve patterns that have kept some of
the contracting energies that the kid made for the muscles of the
buttocks. They may also be able to remove some of the energies of fear or
anger in the torso's emotional centers.
What's not been clarified however, is that the hitting
energies of the adult, and the chaos all around the event, hold their
statements in. And since their statements are the ones that became the
commands on how we should behave, we'll repeat the tightening up in the
buttocks, for instance, when something in our current life "resonates"
with the parent's energy in the buttocks muscles.
It'll also resonate with similar energies in the
auric energy field that flows through the buttocks muscles. Those
energies got put in that location in past lives when we were hit there,
too. And as you will read farther on, its' the past life deaths that run
us after we've cleared out this life's stuff with say, the Bodywork and
The very action of hitting sends the energies in the
person's hand, arm and shoulder deep inside. They say It's hopeless, and
I'll teach you to be bad, and so forth. And because of the deep alpha
state that's created, the kid's body picks up the emotional energies in
the parent's chest, belly, pelvis and legs, too.
But none of this action is occurring in the person's
brain. And very importantly, the child is not making any subconscious
decision about these ideas that are occupying the feelings of the parent.
The kid's attention is focused on tensing and protection from the pain.
There might even be some resentment, or resistance
created by the kid. But it's not about what the parent is feeling, from
the parent's side. Not at this moment in time. Yet, from then on, the
recipient does have the kinds of thoughts that the parent had as well as
his own. Or, the thoughts may be amplified, because the same sentences
occurred in past lives, infancy, pre-natal and birth. So something other
than what went on in the child's brain is keeping the parent's negative
In all the time frames in which we were physically
subdued, even to the point of being killed, or
that we just received by pressures in Mother's belly or birth canal, the
"original" words that became "the lasting decisions" never went through
our conscious mind. And the decisions to keep those words in our flesh
were never made in the mind either.
In fact, everyone I've worked with, who does a Netherton process
discovers, just then, that the decisions about current life beliefs are
just recorded words of other people, stamped in the flesh by other people.
I want to add something to what I said near the beginning of this
People mistakenly think that the decisions "they" made in the past
experiences form the basis of their unconscious belief systems.
They will just add to the quantity of similar energy.
A person might think "they" said "It's hopeless," during
an event, like being stuck in a dungeon when it's hopeless no one will let
us out and no one can hear our cries for help. But when we do the
Netherton "word discovery" technique, we always find that first, hours or
days earlier, it was the abusing other person who told us, "It's
hopeless! No one can hear you. I'll never let you out." while we were
tensed up in the confrontation with him (or her).
When I do the treatment with someone, I can tell it's the abuser's words that were the ones stuck
in the person's body because I can literally feel that the energy
leaves the body and the person gets more relaxed. But when the person was
saying the words some time later in the episode, when he or she thought it, no
energy left their current body. The processing person him or herself, can often feel this
So in these past life
episodes, the words of
hopelessness, etc, are said twice. Once by the other person actually
giving a command such as "You'll never get out of here. You might as
well die," and a second by the person in despair, "I'll never get out of
here. I might as well die."
The second kind, of the despair, are often the same words that the
person's current life mother is saying about a situation in the prenatal,
but it's maybe not as serious. And while mother is expressing
her own pain and difficulty, there always seems to be a physical
tightening on the baby inside her, usually due to Mother's belly
tightening, or illness, or even when some mothers get punched in the belly
during abuse. In this latter experience, the mother is worried that
the baby is being hurt, and the abuser may even be wanting to kill the
same kind of words are also often thought by the doctor during delivery,
at the point where the person, as a baby, is stuck. "If we
don't get her out of there, they'll both die (mother and baby)."
Mother may even be thinking these kinds of words, perhaps at a gut level,
such as, "If I don't get this baby out, I'll die. The pain is so
terrible. I can't stand it."
So all of these words are stated "commands" from "other" people, about
what the situation is and what it means to us. It's a template. We
are feeling a constriction or attack, and if we don't get free of the
circumstance, we could die. Or, in the past life, the only way out
of the constriction is to actually die. And that actual dying is
what "starts" the chain of these kind of events.
is what's been put directly into the body and its energy field. And
you can see that the person in therapy him or herself did not make a
decision to have these words or feelings.
as a rule, the words
of "original episodes" always get
implanted during times of great overwhelm, and then, possibly death. Even
the prenatal and birth words are significant life and death statements.
Many people who have these energy patterns also have them show up as
infancy, childhood and teenage episodes as well. And there are
usually accidental death past lives where the person died in a similar
constricted or painful way, with similar words stated or felt by him.
foundational ones are when we are forced into the situation by other
people who simultaneously utter the defining words. These are the
same words we think, say or feel during our life long major issues.
So a large part of our pattern is that
people's sentences "gave information" to the physical things they did,
that were happening to us.
Their emotional attitude is part of the energies that will tend to make
the same kinds of things keep happening to us, and they will also tell us
how we should keep getting caught up in it.
reactions in those episodes, are almost invariably struggle and then
exhaustion. One woman, who'd had this struggle and exhaustion during
a rape, when she couldn't breathe due to the pressure of the man's chest
on her, also had the same kind of struggle and exhaustion when she died in
a past life during similar circumstances.
During current life difficulties which are not life and death, but are
very significant, people tend to struggle unnecessarily hard and get
exhausted at the end. This behavior is created by their being stuck
in the template of the past energies.
Even when it's not harsh or abusive, it acts like this. One
young man had ongoing depression because he couldn't do as well in a new
environment as he did before. And he didn't know what to do to help these
new people. Turns out, he was very sick in the chest as an infant and his
parents also didn't know what to do to help. This wasn't the most
significant episode to release, but after clearing it, he said his chest
was a little looser, and he later realized he wasn't so depressed.
As SK practitioners understand, the implanted energies
perpetuate the hopelessness and stress of the past scenarios. What I'm
repeatedly saying here is that these energies are not held in the body because of
mental decisions we, ourselves made, even without realizing it.
Much of them are held in because of the statements that are embedded
right inside the energies.
"foundational" energies can't be released neurologically by turning off
the signals to the chronically tight muscles, because there aren't any activating nerve signals from the
directly embedded original episode energies.
Once the pattern is started however, the brain will
get the ideas and will turn on the muscle tightening signals. Then a
Specialized Kinesiology diffusion will turn them off and the person feels
relieved of the stress. But these signals from the brain aren't coming from the more
original commands embedded in energy deep in the body.
So rather than our own mental decisions keeping energies in
us, it's really the quality of the energies and the words embedded in
those energies that keep giving us the mental thoughts.
Here are a few examples. "Stop crying! Or I'll
really give you something to cry about." "Don't you ever talk back to me
again." These are statements made by a parent who's already shaking or
hitting the child. And these are the statements still inside people who
hold back their crying or their anger. They tensed up at the time because
they were in fear. That enabled their own fearful emotions to get stuck
inside them. The angry other person's words went into the flesh because
their own grabbing or hitting put them there. From then on, the other
person's commands tell this person to shove down anger and hold in tears.
"You never should have said that. Now you're going
to pay for it." This is a statement made by a captor in a past life who's
imprisoned the person, or is having him held by two others, and now he's
going to beat and/or kill that person.
Besides being threatened literally for your life,
hopelessness is another reason to stuff. What good will it do to say
something? "It's hopeless. He never listens to me. I can't say anything
to him that will make him change. I'll just have to forget about it and
go back to my housework," This is a statement felt, or thought, by Mother
in the prenatal, while her tensing up abdomen is pressing her feelings
into the flesh of the unborn child inside her.
It's Mothers' words long before we, ourselves, had a
reasoning intellect. And what's key is that Mothers' words are a belief
system that says to hold in those energies. In the person's own
life, he or she may not have a lot of obvious anger about others, but
rather, a lot of futility and hopelessness regarding being unable to say
and get what one wants.
Now I want to point out another
issue. We can indeed
use various techniques to diminish the size of the stored material, all of
the same pattern. We just release it out of the body and energy field.
As I explained in Part 1, SK done after Structural Integration Bodywork
(and even intense yoga) is a good combination to do this. But at the bottom
of the psychological pattern,
there's an unresolved "survival" issue. And I've alluded to this
One major point about this is, we over react to circumstances in our current lives
because, in the underlying episodes, we were being killed in the same kind
of circumstances. In the way we currently behave, when these
energies are activated, the observer part of our mind doesn't know the
difference between the two kinds of
experiences, past and current. It can't separate them from each
other. So we need a technique to do this differentiation, to be able
to see for ourselves how the past experiences are similar to, but more
traumatic than the current ones.
If we do a lot of breath concentration meditation, we can develop the
observer mind enough so we can notice when we are over reacting.
"Oh, this is just an emotional issue with my boyfriend going on a trip,
but I'm acting as if he's going to die when he's away." And we can
say, "Oh, I see what I'm doing and I'm sorry for adding this extra fear
and anger on top of my just missing you."
if we've also had the Bodywork, we also let go of the emotional charge and
tension that just flares up on its own.
There's awareness and a neurological over-ride from the forebrain after
getting back in touch with current reality, but we don't see the specific
past experiences and we aren't erasing them.
In order to
dissolve (or remove) the past experiences embedded inside we need to see
what really happened in the old experiences.
We must be able to see their specifics. And the Netherton method
does this very precisely.
In this process, the therapist asks us questions and does some other
techniques to help us get more and more in touch with the actual pictures,
feelings and words of the internal episodes. Then we get to play the roles of each of the characters in the scene,
expressing what each is saying, and doing. Then "we" clearly see what
happened, and know what is currently going on now is not that old stuff
Specifically, what we find is that the deaths in which
we were forced through hopelessness and total submission, by a controlling
other person, are the source of
the unresolved pattern. Bring them to consciousness as we move them
out of the body and we get the mental resolution, too. We see
mentally that the severe fears we have had were really from other times.
Yet it is also the actual removal of those fearful
energies at the same time we're seeing them that "does the trick." Awareness is good,
even awareness of the past events such as is done in past life regressions. But
awareness alone just allows us to "be with" or deal with the problem a little better.
It doesn't "remove" the problem.
In fact, past life regressions as often done with psychics, can indeed
give us some good behavioral pointers and insight. And they can help
us modify our behavior and "let go" of our triggers because we "know
better." However, the old triggers are still there and they pollute
and distort the fuller, more positive energies we could be expressing if
we also clean out the old energies and tensions themselves.
The body release, as SK practitioners know, is a big
key to removing the problem. However, what I'm saying in this section is
that seeing the old experiences for oneself, and going through the
"releasing experience" of "being" who
actually said and did what in the episodes, is paramount for resolving the issue.
Just turning off nerve signals and releasing energies out of the body does
not change unresolved life pattern psychological perceptions.
A second key point is that the words at the death, from the other people, form
part of the command statements and
belief systems in our minds, as they are put in our energy field while we
are not conscious in the body. So the freedom to be who we want
to be, in what the Reichian therapists call the primary personality, is
buried under a lot of negative emotions and outright physical trauma, and
it even happens right while we are dying and just after.
A third key point is that our patterns are more than just the people's words. It turns out
that the "whole scenario" was actually forced on us by the intentions of other people, with "their" own thoughts,
feelings and outright statements going into the victim. They overpower
and "brand" the victim with an entire mini-play.
These mini-plays broadcast out of the person
energies that attract the "wrong" people into their lives, and then the
takes up the victim role of the internal script and says the lines and does
the actions of the person in their script. The other people who come
into our lives will play the other roles of the script. And even
when the other person is not being malicious, the person with the pattern
will interpret those actions in accord with their own script, and often,
ruin the relationship.
In metaphysics and some spiritual and personal growth practices, we're
told that if we go with the fear and negativity, that's what we'll be
creating. And that's what I'm talking about here. When a
person gets caught in the script, especially with stubborn anger, they
cause the outcome of the script to happen.
"we" are being run by parasites from the past. When we do the
Netherton technique, we see who said and did what, right while we are
removing those energies. And we clear up that level of the issue.
To do this, we must have some amount of conscious awareness and intention.
We must be aware enough to see that it is negative "stuff," and we must
have a strong enough intention to want to remove that stuff.
On the other hand, when the energy packets are activated and take the
person over, it means he or she does not have a strong enough observer
mind and a deep enough spiritual center. The person cannot see that
it's "past stuff."
that condition, the person is not creating the words that he now thinks
or says, nor is he choosing the reactions he now does. And he did
not even make the original decisions to have this happen to begin with.
It is all a repeat of past events. It is the parasitic pattern
taking over the person's body and mind and expressing itself. The
"person" has become dormant.
In fact, these command statements were not even what
we'd call decisions. They were "sentences" describing the hopelessness and
activity of the event, and they were physically forced into our flesh by
the action of another person or persons.
And to repeat the theme, even when a person has an SK “diffusion” to
remove the statements from the brain and thus remove the signals for tensing up
in the body, it doesn't remove the original embedded commands. The
commands to keep the energy there are actually in the energy that's there.
The Netherton method to erase these
energies is to feel them in the body or look at the pictures in the minds eye. Then say the
sentences that come to consciousness out of the energies.

gets the energy out isn't that we're now "re-living" the event
psychologically. We're not getting all involved with all the
emotions. We're feeling the energies and emotions as we also observe
ourselves saying them.
What's getting it out
of the body is the energetic process of "becoming" the energy and enabling it to
express itself, while "we" are remaining conscious and aware.
This is an energy releasing process rather than a trauma re-living
In SK, the technique is to erase the mental neurological
pattern holding the muscles tight. Release the muscles and the energy
dissipates away. But as I've been attempting to clarify, for "these"
episodes, there are no "original" neurological patterns.
The most damaging energies are those that command us
to have certain hang-ups, that we should view the world a certain way.
Yet they weren't necessarily said as decision commands, but rather as
reports of present tense circumstances at the time.
What the Netherton method does is access the specific
experience and say those reports. Even if the old events happened
with people in China, we use our present day brains to translate the
recorded energies into English (or French) sentences. Seeing the exact
event, and saying the exact words that the exact person is speaking,
erases that energy from its embedded location.
When we are familiar with this method, we come to certain
understandings. For one thing, we could say that the energy in the body has nothing to
do with the psychology of remembering that we had some of these events, the
ones we can remember. The ones we remember are related to the
earlier ones, obviously, because the energies in
the body and in these earlier energetic imprints are all part of the
pattern that keeps on going. But remembering and analyzing is a matter for psychotherapy.
Instead, what this process does is deal only with the energy
imprint itself. In this regard it is very much like what SK is doing.
Only it does it from within the energy itself, because there's no place in
"our" body from which we can be and remove "it." It's a foreign substance. We can only
remove it by letting it express itself.
as I said, bringing the detailed
specifics of each event to crystal clarity is essential. For two
reasons. It's the only way to clear the energy. (I know, because I
monitor the energy movement with my aura and psychic centers.) And it's
the only way for the conscious mind to clearly see that it was other
people saying these words, and not his own mind thinking them in either
the past or the present.
want to comment briefly on behavior modification again, including what people
try in hypnotherapy. These attempt to place a new outcome on top of
the existing pattern without removing it. It is based on what I call
a "mental only" concept of programming. It believes that the
negative programs can be changed through conscious intention.
This cannot be done. A new program can be created but it will only
be in parallel with the old, stronger program.
The older and deeper causes of the negative behaviors
aren’t in the same place in the body as the new, good behavior belief
systems being put into the neurological patterns. SK and other
“reprogramming” techniques are working in one area in this regard. And the
deeper, causing energies are located in another, like the collagen fibers
in the butt, or the tissues inside the heart that got there when someone
else was speaking rejecting sentences while thrusting a knife in there.
Therefore, guiding a client through an imagery with a
different outcome of the old scene, for instance, doesn't change the original scene.
Just changing neurological patterns, even if they can access physical
muscles in the current circumstance, does not seem to remove these
formative energies that were directly embedded. The fact that it does not
work is easy to see, because one part of people's minds
still believe the same things and causes them to behave the same old ways.
Morris Netherton, after doing his
method for 30 years, told us students, we cannot place a new belief system
on top of the old one and expect the new one to take precedence.
That's been a lot of words. Now please let me tie it all
together to review, and to fill in some gaps. Here's how "it works," what
it seems SK does, and then what Netherton does.
Remember from part 1 that I think SK is great and it has helped me in
particular with past adult life situations. It also clears up some
of the mind's "noise" and it can help with neurological patterns including
those causing physical conditions.
Here I am talking about the theme of this article, about the directly
embedded energies that make up our long term pattern.
Some event in your current life triggers you into fearing
for your survival. It might be about money, relationships, about
being accepted, getting our needs met, being manipulated or controlled,
even about being overworked.
This fear resonates with energies already stored in the
body and its aura, from a series of serious past events in which you
actually did die. And during that death the same words and sentences
were being said, thought and felt by you, and by other people around you.
In the formative experiences, those energies went into your flesh like a
The serious and real issue of your current life would
cause you to tense up anyway. Simultaneously, the old material fills up your organs and
muscles and causes even more tightness; a lot more tightness. And the
statements of fear or anger that you are thinking or saying about your current
circumstance, are the very same statements that were said to you
in the past episodes. But those were much more physically threatening,
painful and traumatic.
In fact, in death circumstances, you finished the situation
with the issue unresolved. You died, with the other person's statements
that this kind of psychological, or circumstantial situation was hopeless,
that you wouldn't get what you wanted, that they hated you, that you were
a disappointment and a nuisance, and so on.
And in every other past circumstance that has left you
with the same kind of embedded energies, the situation was unresolved, and
your survival was at stake, even if you didn't die. The analysis
didn't go through your conscious mind. Either you were unconscious,
analytically speaking, as a fetus in the womb or birth canal, as an infant
baby, and when you were dead and hanging around your body with other
people supplying the words, either of love and loss, or of good riddance
In all the circumstances in which you battled and lost,
or were just outright killed, your own attention was on the protection and
tensing, and even the pain. While your own consciousness was involved
with this, the other person's energies were also being absorbed into you.
This includes their words, whether said, thought, felt, or even just part
of the angry action in their arms and shoulders, guts or chest, and even
For the current event, you do an SK diffusion turning
off the mental patterns about the recent circumstance, and you even put in
a different idea pattern. Since the point in time when the event
that triggered you is no longer actually present, turning off the nerve
pattern will release the energies out of your muscles (especially if
the fascia is lengthened).
But these are the energies about the current
circumstance. They're the current tensions and the "reproduced"
energies that came out of the old events stored even deeper. They are not
the energies of the old events themselves, the ones that are mixed in with
the other person's statements which tell you that this kind of current event is
threatening your life.
In the past,
a person or persons did threaten you, and did
kill you, or harm you greatly, and they put their threatening energies into your
tensions. These are the words that say, if you say such and such or do
such and such, you will be killed. Or, "Because you did such and
such, I want to kill you, I want to make you pay!" Those commands are located right in
the tense muscles. Nowadays, they influence the automatic behaviors that
You made an instinctual decision to tense up. That, too
may be able to be released from the brain. But the statements of this
other person, and the action he or she did to you, were not yours. So
a neurological access cannot do anything with them.
Therefore, the next time a similar threat occurs in your
current life, it will again resonate with what this person did or said,
and you will again "over react" and tense up, having the same thoughts
as well. That person's behavior is extra baggage you were "printed with"
in those past times.
Let me give a real example. I treated a young
woman who'd been raped as a teenager, on two different occasions. To make
a long story short, she had a behavior in everyday life where she started
pulling herself inside when you were talking with her. She also explained
that she'd had much lower self esteem since the first incident.
What we found in the Netherton processing was that the
pressure of the much larger boy's body, pressed on her chest during the
rape, was keep her from breathing. We actually felt the energies sinking
inside as the life force kept getting weaker. I had her follow these
sensations consciously and speak the words, of the boy's energies, coming
out of what was inside of her that she was currently feeling. They were
all the commands he was giving her about her being no good, her causing it
to happen, him not caring about anything she wanted, and so forth.
This had been an extremely traumatic physical event, part
of an all night series of traumas, including being harmed, and then
abandoned, by the two people she went to get help from.
We loosened all the fascial tightness and dissolved out all
these inner energies, those from the other rape and a past life rape and
killing, which also had this sinking inside action, and from a childhood
experience in which her mother hit her heavily and also chastised her. We
included her own stored anger, located in the pelvis and legs, from both
She no longer had that low self esteem, and the sinking
feeling that I had noticed always being there, was gone. She was also a
lot more "alive." These energies had been in the flesh. And the
"material" that made her behave the way she did, was not really her. They
were polluted energies in her. They were
"doing their thing."
In addition, the physical compression of her fascia caused
by the pressures had also "distorted" and weakened her healthy
psycho-somatic functioning. Compressed chests don't allow deep breathing,
they restrict energy flow and they keep people from expressing their inner
desires, even when they want to, mentally.
The embedded rapists' energies were giving "her" the
psychological orientation of her "complex." Yet what made her "act out"
the complex was the actual physical movement of the energy packet, where
her life force was going out of her muscles and she was sinking further
and further inside. The energies of this type that she'd gotten stuck
with in the two teenage rapes definitely contributed to her sinking-ness
and low self esteem; we saw that.
The source of these events, and all the associated abuse
and rejection from others, had come from the past life episode of the same
type in which she was killed, and of which the energies were still inside
of her and in her aura. The other person was still "there," saying the
same words and doing the same thing. That's where the sinking life force
energy did the whole route. She died with the pattern.
So, let me draw a very brief conclusion. SK will access the brain and remove the decisions we
put in those neurons.
Body-Mind Release processing will access the directly
embedded energies and physical conditions that were caused by other
They both help. The key is to use them in ways that
we know are working.
