PDF The Steps of The Method for Practitioners.pdf
The Method proceeds through a series of steps. There are many nuances to it that require the support of an experienced guide to benefit the most from the process. But doing the following simple version of it on your own can be quite effective, with practice. This outline is especially helpful to those I've guided through The Method, as a way of practicing taking yourselves through it.
Step 1: Feel The Feeling
The first step begins the instant that you become aware of any inharmonious, unpleasant, or painful feeling, like sadness or anxiety, disappointment or resentment, envy or inadequacy. As soon as possible upon sensing the presence of this feeling, give yourself some space and time to fully and freely feel it without resistance.
Step 2: Return To The Child
When you feel ready, move on to Step 2 by reflecting back on your early childhood, as you continue feeling this feeling. See if you can recognize that you have experienced this feeling before, at earlier times in your life. Take a moment to recall those. Then see if you can recall feeling a similar feeling in your earliest childhood, during your first 6 years.
Step 3: Return To Your Parents
Now ask yourself which one of your parents this feeling reminds you of. Do you feel your mother's emotional pattern here, or your father's, or both?
Next, try to feel that feeling in the body of that parent, to the point that you can see your parent feeling that feeling in your mind, and feel that parent feeling that feeling in your heart.
Then, think about how that parent related with your other parent under the influence of that emotion. Try to feel the pain that he or she was in.
Next, think back to how your parents related with one another under the influence of that feeling. Did your mother complain? Did your father shut down in response to that complaining? Did they fight with one another in anger or even hatred? Did one drink too much while the other played the martyr? Did one leave in reaction to the other shutting down?
No matter what your memory of your parents' relationship during the first 6 years of your life, and even if you have no memory of it at all, FEEL the sense of the present painful feeling that you now are experiencing passing between them.
Keep focused on this feeling until you can feel the sense of the three of your vibrating together in this feeling.
Step 4: Feel Compassion
When you feel ready to move on, the next step is to direct feelings of compassion toward you, your mother and your father. The Method is not about blaming your parents for the patterns that produced your suffering. Through The Method your love and appreciation of your parents will grow.
Feel compassion for yourself for the suffering you are going through as you feel this painful feeling. Then feel it for your mother as you feel this pain in her. Then feel it for your father as you feel the pain in him.
Step 5: Gratitude and Appreciation
When you feel ready to move onto the next step, shift into feelings of gratitude and appreciation for your parents. Thank your father and mother for giving you the childhood experience that formed this painful feeling pattern in you, so that your compassion and wisdom could expand.
Also feel gratitude toward your self for going through the pain of this feeling for your growth in wisdom and compassion.
Finally, feel gratitude and appreciation for the pure, unconditional love that your parents felt for you at an intrinsic or soul level, which guided them to provide you with the opportunity for you to grow through your life-experiences. Try to actually feel the sense of their perfect, unconditional love for you flowing into you.
Step 6: Feel Love For Yourself
When you feel ready to move on, it's time for Step 5. Whether you can feel it or not, just presume that you have released energy from that painful feeling-pattern and the limiting belief underlying it. It is now vital that you do something constructive with that freed up energy or, as Arnold Patent says, "The painful feeling will just return to where it was and resettle back into you."
You redirect that freed up energy by focusing on feeling pure, unconditional love for your self. Feel your love coming from your heart into you. It may help to think of some other person, like your own child, or think of a pet that you love, and imagine that love flowing into you. Continue to feel love for yourself until you feel ready to move on.
The next step for loving yourself is to feel a sense of being totally open and receptive to experiencing a life of infinite fulfillment on all levels. Just try to open to how this feels in your heart. Continue to feel this until you are ready to move on.
Step 6: Open The Space
When you feel ready for the next step, imagine your life of infinite fulfillment expanding endlessly, until it fills the whole universe. Then feel yourself stepping intto that life of infinite fulfillment and imagine yourself being filled with pure Divine Energy. Feel that Energy expanding to fill the infinite dimensions of infinity. Feel yourself to be One Infinite State Of Divine Energy.
Step 7: Feel Your Self-Value
When you feel ready, shift into a focus on the feeling of your self-value. Feel the sense of being valuable to yourself. Relate to yourself as a sacred divine being. Do this on a feeling level. Don't just think it. Feel it. This may involve exercising a new "feeling muscle" for you. The more you exercise it, the stronger it becomes.
Step 8: Value Your Gifts
Relate to your gifts and talents, the things you enjoy doing and that you derive inspiration from doing, as sacred and valuable to you. Don't t take them for granted or diminish their value to you out of a false sense of modesty or humility. Feel your gifts and talents as sacred and of immeasurable value, not just to you for the joy they bring you, but to the universe, to the whole of humanity, to all of existence. As you express your gifts and talents to the fullest, you experience the most joy possible and share that joy with everyone else. Since joy is the "true currency", meaning that the more joy you feel the more abundance in every area of your life you will experience, realize how precious, sacred, and valuable your gifts truly are to you and to all.
Step 9: Share Your Self And Your Gifts
Now imagine yourself being seen by the whole universe, as you make it known that you are showing up for service. Imagine, FEEL that everyone in the universe is now aware of you, the sacred being you are and the sacred gifts you have to share, and feel everyone responding with appreciation, gratitude and offerings of abundance.
Step 10: Experience Abundance
When you feel ready, feel the appreciation of the universe translating into infinite abundance. See and feel yourself to be in a state of perfect affluence. Feel the sense of releasing your hold on all that you have, secure in the knowledge that more you release the more room you make for more to come in. You are in the perfect statte of abundance in all forms of supply, including finances, abilities, opportunities, and people who can love and support you in every way that you desire to be supprorted and loved. Feel this state of perfect, limitless abundance as your TRUE condition, relating to all ideas of lack and limitation as imaginary and illusory. Remain in this feeling of abundance for as long as you like. The more you live in "abundance consciousness" the more abundance will manifest in your life.
Step 11: Trust And Surrender
The final step is to completely surrender all control of your life to the Divine. FEEL that the universe is a perfectly safe "place", a perfectly loving system of support that cares for you. FEEL the sense of giving up all control to this Perfectly Benevolent Infinite Power we call God. Feel the sense that you cannot make a mistake, that you don't have to figure anything out, that no matter what the outcome it will always be perfectly formed by Infinite Love for you, so no particular outcome really matters. Continue feeling this state of total surrender to the infinite possibilities, with a feeling of joyful trust, appreciation and gratitude. All you need to do to experience the validation of this trust is to live in joy and follow the inner guidance of inspiration that intuitively guides you perfectly always.
Follow Your Feelings
That completes The Method. Use The Method only when you are experiencing a painful or negative emotion. Never use it when you are already feeling joy. When you are feeling joy, hold your attention on that feeling and follow the guidance of your feelings to feel more and more joy.
From this point forward, remain aware of your feelings, and rely on your feelings for your gudancce. Your intuition communicates with you through your feelings, not through your thoughts.
You will be guided, essentially, through three feelings that we can compare to a trafic light: Go (Green), Slow (Yellow), Stop (Red).
When you feel a sense of harmony, inspiration, joy, inner peace, alignment or empowerment, that means "Go". The thoughts you are thinking, the actions you are taking, are in line with your best interests and the interests of all concerned.
If you feel a sense of internal discomfort, resistance, conflict, anxiety or loss of power you are receiving "a yellow light", meaning "slow down, ease up and use caution". If that doesn't resolve the feeling of resistance, take that to mean "red light", meaning "Stop". Don't do. Just feel. If the feeling of discord doesn't pass, use The Method to release it. (This is when I suggest that my clients contact me for support.)
One More Point
Be gentle on yourself. Use The Method without strain. You don’t have to completely free yourself from any given negative pattern in one session. That would be like trying to eat so much in one sitting that you never have to eat again or trying to work out so hard at the gym that you never need another workout.
Each time you employ The Method it releases more energy. With regular use the process of your release builds up momentum, helping you to remain more stable at higher and higher levels of positive feeling states, causing the circumstances of your life to improve comensurately.
