Using the Inner Peace Process from Volume 1
I thought you might enjoy reading feedback from a person who recently did the Inner Peace Process straight from our book Peak States of Consciousness, Vol.1
(2004). [For those of you who don't know, Volume 1 has a revision 1.1 technique in it for getting a steady Inner Peace state. That free process works for about 1/3 of the general public who try it - our licensed therapists use the more complex but much more generally effective revision 4.1 with their paying clients.
We also have a two hour video on how to do the public version, so you can follow along and do it while you watch - it is now on YouTube, and can be seen on the therapist website
, or a more in-depth treatment on our main Institute website
I was able to purchase the first volume of your Peak States books on Amazon.
It's an awful lot to go through so I've been hunting and pecking mostly. Last Tuesday evening I spent an hour and 40 minutes administering the Inner Peace process to myself and I must say it seems to have worked for me.
It's quite remarkable to me because I still don't really understand what Beethoven's music, the phrase "Join forces in glory", and the linking chain visualization means to my subconscious. Nonetheless, since I did the process it is clear that I'm unable to experience sadness, grief, or anger when recalling formerly painful past experiences. I'm also far less emotionally reactive to my usual triggers.
It's a shame you have no local therapists in Maine where I live. I'm tempted to share this with my wife and boys, but having read the dire warnings about risk of suicide, I'd prefer they didn't experiment as I did. In any case I'd say we are all benefiting from the calm I'm currently living.
I'm still adjusting to the state and trying to wrap my mind around the reality of it, but I want to thank you for the work you are all doing.
I enjoyed reading about your experience - glad you had a successful outcome with the Inner Peace Process. I’d recommend doing it two more times just to be sure it is locked in place. As the success rate with this simple rev 1.1 is only about 1 in 3, you’re a lucky guy!
Re your family, the process was tested extensively before publication to make sure it did not have any serious problems. The book explains the kinds of trauma issues one can encounter with it if something is not working correctly. If you are still concerned, you could always contact a PeakStates therapist to act on call as backup just in case. Again, the success rate is 1 in 3, so no telling if it will also work with them. The therapist process (rev 4.1) is much more complex but works more consistently - and also costs money.
All my best,
PS: I get an email like yours every once every few months, which still amazes me as I have no idea how people ever find our books...
In my experience, trauma healing only becomes easier with the Inner peace state, because it is easier to get out of activation if needed.
Thus it gives one more confidence into getting into the traumas.
In Inner peace, activation from past memories is turned off. But :
- activation in the present is still possible, thus working on it on the spot is possible
- one can regress to a traumatic memory and feel the trauma at that moment
In other words, it becomes an effort to feel a trauma in the past, but it is still possible. It makes life much easier !
If you have a positive outlook on life and the Inner peace state, stressful events are only stressful for a short duration of time, sometimes minutes only, and then you go back to peacefulness.
Does that help you ?
So the command tells you to "connect" all these forces together. And to do this surrounded with the feeling of glory.
Imagine e.g.: a mother tells to her child "bring your hands together and connect all fingers together too as close as you can; and keep smiling doing it" (in this example child's hands and fingers are "forces"; and "keep smiling" used instead the "in glory").
