First impressions with pstec.
« on: February 23, 2018, 05:19:15 PM »
Hi,
Recently I've read about people raving about PSTEC. So I downloaded the free package and tried it out. I've used hypnosis before and it helped me manage insomnia, but not with any emotional issues.

The overall sound of click tracks itself - I was quite impressed, sounds so suggestive even without tapping that it's kind of scary, my first impression was that if I play this long enough or fall asleep with it, I might accidentally erase my own identity. (Just kidding) So I'm sure this works, I can taste it does.

I tried it for different issues and repetitively, but didn't notice effect so far. I've read that I'm supposed to focus on tapping and the emotion, not the voice. I can tap correctly but the constant talking makes it impossible for me to concentrate on  feelings and constantly telling me how the harder I try the less I can focus sure isn't helping. I don't have intense feelings like phobias, just underlying stuff that has been there forever so it's hard to recall the feeling by will to begin with.

One weird thing that is happening is that I'm smiling and laughing constantly throughout the click track, because the erase track sounds so - well, brainwashingly - that I can't help but giggle in myself all the way! I don't know, this might change if I listen longer but I don't know about it lol... and particularly when the voice says "you're wonderful" or "all I told you in this track is truth" in the middle of mind jumblings it sounds so out of nowhere random that I just crack up laughing out loud...
I've heard some people laugh while emerging from hypnosis, so I'm wondering if it has something to do with it or what does it mean.

But I will be persistent and explore further. This is just the beginning.

-------------------------------------
Also, I'd like to give a feedback about accelerator page. I will definitely purchase the accelerators when I get a chance, and I'd like to suggest something about the pitch on the page. I was convinced to purchase not by the page, but another user experience with PSTEC. I believe the page has potential to be improved. This is kind of what this person said: "When we have a negative experience, our emotions cluster around it bulding a network with latter negative experiences/memories and related emotions such as embarrassment or anxiety... what accelerators do is bring the initial core memory which caused the problem, with the accompanying emotion, from the subconscious to the surface so it can be erased, and then the whole network falls apart like a tower of cards". His experience with PSTEC was a successful one, and when I've read this, I instantly decided I'd buy accelerators - it's just a matter of time. His description makes it so clear how much superior accelerators are to erasing random stuff, without this people with long standing emotional issues might give up when they don't achieve success by random targeting... (It's probably superior in other aspects as well, I just didn't get to hear about it.) So I wanted to share this, because less people will miss out. I believe there should be a clear gist about what accelerators do exactly, because "they improve how PSTEC works" isn't very convincing for analytical people. I hope whoever manages the page sees this or if someone could please send this to them. It's written with best of intentions.

Sorry for the long initial post - I think I figured out what's going on.

I have so bad self esteem that when told something extremely positive or a praise such as "you're wonderful" from the basic track it's so far removed from my beliefs about myself that my subconscious finds it ridiculous so it just bursts into involuntary laughter! I am basically laughing against my will as soon as something positive is being implemented in the track. In case someone thought I was ridiculing the track, no I wasn't :-[! Laughter is happening involuntarily. While using hypnosis affirmation in the past, I remember now I've always carefully avoided "extremely positive" affirmations because "it's too unrealistic, it sounds fake, I can't connect with it".

Is there a way to override this? About the ability to recall emotion and focus on emotion while tapping, that's just something I'll have to practice I guess.

Hi DaughtersofThunder,

Thank you for your post and welcome to the forum :D

I think many people would be in 100% agreement with you; PSTEC is so unique that, in many ways, it will not sound like anything you have ever heard before. It is unusual in many ways, as it's not about relaxation or positive thinking...but these can be by-products of using the Click Tracks.

There are some other great, free PSTEC products you may wish to try:

- Embracing Change (http://bit.ly/pstecembracingchange)
- You are Amazing! (http://bit.ly/pstecamazing)
- Mindfulness with PSTEC (http://bit.ly/pstecmindfulness)

These brilliant tracks will help you think about things in a different way and will enhance your work with PSTEC.

If you have any questions while you are here, please let us know.

All the best,

Paul  :D

Hi, appreciate your response! Looks I gradually got used to the track and involuntary laughter finally stopped. I downloaded these packages to listen to them during this week. I am currently just practicing focusing on the memory and feeling, too many things are going on during the track so it totally slips out of my mind. But when I started with hypnosis I couldn't get it right straight away either, I want to give this a decent chance.

It will get easier, quickly. Remember...PSTEC isn't meant to be easy. It's meant to be effective. :)

If you think it, feel it or say it...PSTEC it!

This seems really difficult... I had some improvement in concentration but I can concentrate on a sentence or event to a point but there's no feeling to hold onto. I can't recall feelings by will. I think that's why I've had no results... does basic 1 solve this problem or pstec won't work for me? I am willing to purchase it in the future if it can fix it, I just have a lot going on right now (soon moving and stuff).

Btw, should pstec be used with acute feelings? Per example I get disappointed into something or legitimately upset about something and tap to stop it. I'm a bit ambivalent on its use for that so I wanted to ask what's the experience of the community.

Hi DaughterofThunder,

Thank you for your post. Sorry for the late reply.

The PSTEC Click Tracks can be used to neutralise ANY feeling/emotion (often used interchangeably) and generally this would be any unwanted feeling. This could be a positive feeling associated with an unresourceful behaviour, however - for example, the feeling of "elation" when spending too much money, "excitement" when gambling at a casino.

This is a case of personal choice, as you can choose to keep the feelings if you believe they serve you in some way. Also, unless it's an intervention, people will need to deem whether their behaviour might be a problem.

PSTEC can be used on low-level or acute feelings. Someone may judge they have anxiety at a level of 10/10, while another person may hold this at a level of 4/10. The Click Tracks will work equally well, irrespective of the intensity of the emotion and associated feelings.

I certainly recommend you download the other tracks I linked in the earlier post. They are all free and will give you additional ways to approach change and some insights into the various PSTEC tools.

With the Free Click Tracks, you do not have to be perfect. That goes for all the tracks. You follow the instructions and do your best to TRY to feel the emotion and associate with the memory. We are human, so our minds may wander and that's OK. Just try.

You know you have "underlying stuff", so HOW do you know that? How does it show up?

What do you do to produce the problem (or even have the perception it is a problem)? How does it show up for you in everyday life? When are the feelings triggered?

There will be causes and triggers, of course, but you can start by simply trying to invoke this feeling while running the CT.

It can also be useful to run the CT as close as possible to when you experience the feelings/thoughts.

If you could give more details on what you are targeting, I will be more specific. This is not essential, but does tend to help.

Kind Regards,

Paul  :)

Hi Paul, first thanks for caring enough to write such an extensive reply.
I've downloaded the recommended packages and listened to them - except for Mindfulness package (didn't have enough time).

It's hard to word what my issue is but I'll try.
In short, all my life I've never been happy and content. I never felt safe, acceptable or like life is a good experience. I never felt that my life has a significance and meaning, or had the sense that everything's ok in the end of the day, or going to be ok...

DaughterofThunder -

Since you have listed out so much here... I would suggest you focus on one primary area to get started and that would be repressed anger. Anger at all of these issues you have outlined and also anger at yourself for all of these issues. Start with the most significant and troublesome and just start working your way through the list. A good place would even be to simply clicktrack being angry at your situation, angry at life in general. Go all the way back as far as you can remember, likely your parents.

When you run the clicktracks get extremely angry - where you have a tantrum (in your mind) about how much you hate these, rage, fury,...how freaking sick and tired you are of dealing with or worrying about that issue. Use expletives, cry, long 1-2 minute screams with your inner voice in your imagination...really get into it as much as possible. Get it all out! If any grief comes up afterwards, clear that too.

Outside of that two other areas you can focus on are unresolved grief and self-loathing.

You could spend several weeks on anger and see an amazing transformation and you will notice many things start to go away on their own, especially anxiety, procrastination, depression related issues. Repressed anger is the worst and we have no idea how much we have!!

Since you have anxiety presently it would be suggested to start with 2-3 runs of the clicktracks a day so roughly a 40 minute investment every day. The 2015 clicktracks are much more powerful and also seems to play nicely with anxiety sufferers.  Three runs of the 2015 tracks wil put you about 45 min a day. Also would suggest to pick up the accelerators and listen to the relaxing accelerator each night at bedtime.

Doing the up front work with anger will also weaken everything else you have going on so when you go to clear and issue it will not take nearly as much time as if yo had the anger there.

Hope this helps you get going and keep going.

I don't feel anger about my life at all. I feel pain. But who knows... if I have it it's probably very repressed.

I don't feel like I have the right to get angry about anything, life is bad for most people and a lot of people have it worse. I felt really bad after that previous post, I don't want to complain.

You are right, it's really a lot of things. Which also explains why I had no success. It's hard to pick what to focus on.
I guess I will focus on anxiety for now and if I feel anger along the way I will clicktrack it.

P.S. I was just studying how to release repressed anger when it hit me that I get angry with myself. Ahhh, completely forgot about that. I guess being angry with yourself is "permissible" for the people who suppress anger so it did the trick to find it out. I'll have to hunt the feelings acutely to clicktrack because I'm really bad at recalling it otherwise.

Hi DaughterofThunder,

Thank you for your message and for taking the time to share some of your story. I read some of it earlier and see you have now edited it

I echo what Brian wrote and he has worked diligently with PSTEC to get some truly amazing shifts within his own model of reality.

I really appreciate you reaching out and can assure you of two things:

1) You absolutely matter

2) You deserve to be happy

If these seem strange concepts to you, try saying "I deserve to be happy" and "I matter."

If these do not seem to be true, then you probably hold the opposite of these beliefs.I suspect you do and you would certainly not be alone in that. You may also hold certain beliefs about safety, feeling emotions, and perhaps about life being unfair and happiness being impossible for you.

You can approach PSTEC in a myriad of ways. Generally, since you feel the unwanted emotions, it tends to be prudent to start with the Click Tracks. The effect tends to be more obvious.

For instance, emotions can feed into beliefs, and beliefs into emotions. We may not be consciously aware of the beliefs that are fuelling an emotion like  anger, but we know we feel anger. So, we know when the anger is gone - we no longer feel it when it is cleared.

However, beliefs can be emotionally causal too and eliminating beliefs that feed unwanted emotional and behavioural patterns creates tremendous liberation.

For this reason, I would contend that Belief Blasters (http://bit.ly/beliefblasters) is an essential PSTEC tool. It just works so well with the Click Tracks.

But irrespective of whether you acquire these or not, you can absolutely change all aspects of your life with PSTEC. It is just a case of how deeply you intend to go with this work.

Please keep us updated.

Thanks,

Paul

I got the idea to clicktrack on feeling like a burden which returned again this morning when I returned to this thread - to no avail - even acute feelings simply evaporate out of my mind as soon as I start playing the clicktrack because the voice and the clicks all compete for my attention. Please tell me that belief blasters are not like this so I can know whether to buy or not. Does it also require multitasking? If they are different as it would seem from the description page, I want to purchase them, just won't be able to in the following few weeks. I'll update then after I have tried them. Thank you both so much.

Hi DaughterofThunder,

Thanks for your post. You are most welcome.

We are here to help, so your post is anything but a burden and neither are you. I assure you of that.

You may have a feeling of being a burden, but I would suggest this is generated by an actual belief like "I am a burden." Feelings would tend to be physiological - a "knot in the stomach", nervousness, a negative sense.

These can show up in many guises, so those are just a few examples.

What is the actual feeling you get when you believe you are a burden?

How do you know you feel like a burden? Tune into that.

Focus on trying to feel the feeling(s) and the memory whilst tapping. Let Tim's words run in the background while you focus on the thought/memory, the associated feeling(s) and tapping along to the clicks and tones.

You can simply try to feel the feelings.

Belief Blasters are very different and require no tapping at all. There is not as much to do - just try to believe the belief while the track plays. There are some instructions before playing the track, but these are extremely straightforward.

What is the actual feeling you get when you believe you are a burden?

Yes I often feel anxiety in stomach, like it squeezed into a fist or a knot if it's intense. But most often, my mouth get dry and I go pale. But I couldn't catch  this to tap because it pretty much always happens at work. Another thing I often get - actually got it after writing my background here - is a lump in throat or throat getting very tightened, like when you're about to cry. It surprised me. And a few others but these are most common. I don't get anything physical when I think I'm a burden, because it's normal to me... simply that's my world, that's my "normal", I can't imagine different. Even in good relationships, when it's made clear to me I'm loved it doesn't change one bit how I see myself. Oh wait, my throat is tightening like that again. Didn't see that coming. So, I was not even aware... I don't have conscious feelings about my negative beliefs, even now, there's no conscious feeling... And the sensation slips away soon. No wonder I couldn't clicktrack right. I already knew I was pretty much disconnected from my feelings because it often takes me a long time to figure out that I can't take something anymore, I just keep enduring like under some drugs and when I realize things went too far long ago I'm already breaking down.

Great news about belief blasters. I was really hoping to hear this... I'll get that one first.

Hi DaughterofThunder,

Thanks for posting and for confirming some of the ways anxiety shows up for you.

As well as using PSTEC Click Tracks for historical traumas, troublesome thoughts or memories, and future imagined scenarios, you can also use them "in the moment."

You mentioned that your anxiety symptoms show up at work and you cannot evoke these when trying to feel the emotions later on.

You may, therefore, derive tremendous benefit from using the Click Tracks while the symptoms are being experienced (or as close as possible to the time of them being experienced).

This approach is not essential for everyone, but I feel it may work very well for you in this context. Please note, however, you don't have to feel the emotion. You just have to know what problem you are working on and try to feel the emotions.

If it is possible for you to do so, I would suggest trying to find 10-15 minutes during a break at work and then running the Click Track. You could have the free Click Tracks loaded onto your phone or a MP3 player and then doing a round each day - you may be surprised how quickly this dissolves.

If someone holds a belief like "I'm not loveable", all evidence and affirmation to the contrary makes it virtually impossible to "get through". So, if a loved one spells out the different ways the person is loved, it is likely to be interpreted differently: e.g. "that person loves me, but I'm not actually worth loving."

Eliminating the very beliefs that feed into the pattern makes a huge difference.
