A magical miracle-maker or a simple system of brain reprogramming? What is PSYCH-K?
Recently I met a man who goes for a swim at Bondi Beach absolutely every day of his life (well every day that he’s in Sydney and not travelling), no matter the weather – and it doesn’t bother him. Ian Spicer has programmed his mind to enjoy this experience and to not be fazed by the cold air or water. You might think this is pretty impossible, or perhaps you imagine he had to sit in a chair in the middle of a laboratory with electrodes all over him to get his brain rewired in some horrific way.
However, it was really simple – deceptively simple, as I was to find out first-hand.
I was at his basic Psych-k workshop and learnt in a couple of days how to bring about this sort of change for myself, and for others, as Ian effortlessly taught us to do two unique Psych-k balances.
I got really excited when Ian explained some of the changes that had happened for him and for other participants as a result of applying Psych-k techniques. The ‘trouble’ is that it is so simple, that people don’t think they had the problem in the first place. Ian told me the story of a guy who had come to see him for a personal session in Sydney a few weeks prior. He experienced extreme stress his whole life from a childhood trauma. Ian facilitated a Psych-k balance for stress transformation. He went away happy, but about two weeks after that he rang Ian to complain that he thought he’d wasted his money on the session. Why? Because he said he didn’t think he’d had the trauma after all seeing that when he’d encountered the circumstances now, it had no effect. Der! We humans have such a short memory for things like that. This guy had convinced himself that he must have been mistaken about the severity of the trauma because the ‘cure’ seemed to be just too easy.
Certainly my experience was that it was too simple too. When I worked on things I wanted to change in my thinking, I began to doubt that I’d nailed it. However, time proved differently…
One of the balances that I completed was for better health and body. Then nine weeks ago I had overseas visitors staying for a weekend. Tania was telling us how she’d been on a gluten-free diet for a long time now and she was feeling so much better in so many ways.
Now I have known for many years that gluten is not good for my body, and I’ve limited it, but every time I tried to give it up totally, after a while I weakened and broke out in a mad feeding frenzy on bread – and then gave up the idea of a glutenfree diet.
Guess what! I’ve been able to stick to it as easily as anything for nearly eight weeks now and, yes, I’m feeling a bit more energised and my knees feel less creaky (and I hadn’t realised that they were getting creaky and a bit painful because it was creeping up on me).
Looking back, I see that the balances for better health and body facilitated my brain to allow my body to do this – and my partner Frank has also easily stayed away from it, having done the same balances. What a miracle!
I first read about Psych-k back in 2007 and had a go at doing it for myself, but rather unsuccessfully then. Knowing what I know now, I can see all the many ways my life would have been easier had I gone to a professional at that time instead of just shelving it. C’est la vie. I guess I had to learn the hard way. However, now that you’ve heard from me just how easy it is, perhaps you’ll choose to undertake a basic workshop for yourself – sooner rather than later. Here are the next available basic workshop dates with Ian: Brisbane April 30, 2016 Melbourne May 7, 2016 Sydney May 28, 2016 After this first workshop participants are equipped to balance for desired goals for themselves and for others, both personally and professionally. There are advanced and health and wellbeing workshops if you wish to take your skills to a greater level.
The greatest over-arching benefit of freeing your mind with Psych-k is a dramatic sky-rocketing in joy and success in everyday life. I can understand now why Ian says that this is beyond affirmations, willpower and positive thinking.
