PSYCH-K stands for Psychological Kinesiology. It is a self-help tool developed by Robert M. Williams in 1988 with the goal of changing beliefs in the subconscious mind. Subconscious beliefs are often the “invisible” cause of self-sabotaging behaviors.
PSYCH-K® is a profound set of processes which assist the subconscious mind to re-write self-limiting subconscious programs (beliefs) into life-enhancing subconscious programs (beliefs).
Many people find self-limiting beliefs create self-sabotaging behaviors. Such behaviors covertly affect one’s ability to be successful in business and personal relationships. These invisible issues are often the ruling programs that silently lead people to despair, frustration and exasperation in their lives.
PSYCH-K® offer people an easy and effective way to change the way they behave, feel, and interact with others in their life.
Traditional tools such as affirmations, talk therapy, positive thinking, will power, reading self-help books, making vision boards, writing in journals and visualizing are predominantly limited to the conscious mind.
Psych-K Brings Balance
PSYCH-K® works to bring balance and coherency between the two hemispheres of the brain, eliminating hemispheric conflict. This allows the Partner/client to utilize all the resources available to him/her rather than being only “half brained”, accessing half the available resources.
Perhaps you have heard people say “I’m left brained” of “I’m right brained” This doesn’t really make a lot of sense. We all know we have a whole brain! What is being indicated is that the person is only utilizing half their resources.
“Left brain” activity is all about using logic and reasoning. It thinks in words, deals with parts and specific information, it analyzes and breaks things apart, thinks sequentially, identifies with individuals instead of groups and is highly ordered and controlled. It is the hemisphere also noted for the more masculine character traits.
“Right brain” activity is engaged more in using intuition, emotions,and creativity. it thinks in pictures, deals with wholes rather than parts and is interested in the relationship between things. It synthesizes and puts things together, thinks simultaneously and holistically. It identifies with groups and is spontaneous and free. It is the hemisphere noted for the more feminine character traits.
We may over-identify with one hemisphere more than the other. This over-identifying is what is know as being left brained or right brained. Challenges can arise with this over-identification. If we are very engaged in left brain activity relying only on logic and reasoning to solve an issue, we may totally block creative options which would offer fantastic solutions to the issue.
The “reality or outward manifestation” of our lives is a result of subconscious programming we have received throughout our lives from many sources! While our current programming may be seen as a blessing or a curse, the fantastic news is that this subconscious programming can easily be re-written.
Programming Subconscious Mind
Just as a computer hard drive is re-written with a few keystrokes on a keyboard, our programming can be updated with new information. It doesn’t matter how long a file has existed, the subconscious mind can be reprogrammed with a few steps, taking only a few minutes once the PSYCH-K process is engaged.
Our subconscious mind is a sponge from pre-birth to approximately 6-7 years of age. The subconscious mind, without judgment, acts as a recording device. It simply records all that it experiences. From our perception of our experiences we form beliefs. These beliefs then become the operating system from which we live our lives.
By living from these old outdated programs we become stuck when faced with new and different circumstances. The subconscious mind always operates from a “present tense” mode. If something happened to us in 1953, 1973, etc. our subconscious mind still operates from the old program initiated at that time, thinking it is still current and valid.
A lot has changed in the world and old programs don’t always fit in the world we now find ourselves in. We all update the computers from time to time. Isn’t it strange to think we can be successful without updating our own subconscious programming?
It is estimated as much as 95% of our consciousness is governed by the subconscious mind. This means only 5% of our consciousness is being directed by our conscious mind. While this may seem like a staggering percentage, we must consider all our bodily functions are under the direction of the subconscious mind.
How many times have you driven a road and wondered later how you got home? Your subconscious mind was driving the car, not your conscious mind!
If you are still curious as to what is Psych-K? Learning how to use the basic processes takes only a single weekend to learn and in the learning you will really come to understand how it works. More time invested after the class increase one’s skill and dexterity using the processes. PSYCH-K is a tool that can be used every day to create vast and dynamic change for the rest of your life.
While these can be helpful. They are seriously limited in effectiveness. If conscious mind processes were all that were needed to change the subconscious mind, we would already be doing and being all that we wanted.
The focus of PSYCH-K® is directed at changing beliefs held in the subconscious mind. Our beliefs are the predecessors of all behaviors, feelings and interpretations we experience in our life.
People can learn how to change their subconscious programming at the first indication of a challenge, thus creating a different outcome.“Permission and Commitment” protocols are used within the PSYCH-K® processes. These ensure the Super Conscious Mind and Subconscious Mind are in alignment with the agreed upon direction, and intended work and will complete the established process.
Permission also ensures the desired subconscious programming change is in the best interests of the person at that particular time. If Permission or Commitment are not allowed for the desired change, this goal cannot be worked upon at that time. Instead, a higher priority will be identified and will be addressed first.
This other “higher priority” goal is more important and appropriate for subconscious programming change. Permission and Commitment can be obtained for it. Several confirmation or verification steps are used to satisfy the skeptical conscious mind that change has actually occurred.
The use of muscle testing is utilized to establish communication with the subconscious mind. Whole brain body postures and movements cause neuron firings in both brain hemispheres, creating a whole brain state in which subconscious programming change more readily occurs within the subconscious mind.
This program is a synergistic combination of divinely inspired ideas merged with a few elements derived from Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP), Psycho-spiritual processes, Milton Erickson Style Hypnotherapy, Educational Kinesiology, and Acupressure healing modalities. The result is a highly dynamic and successful means of changing sabotaging beliefs.
Brain Mapping (qEEG) now offers scientific validation that changes are in fact being made within the brain during the balance process. Neuroscientist, Dr. Jeffrey Fannin, of the Center for Cognitive Enhancement in Glendale, Arizona worked with Rob Williams and PSYCH-K® beginning in January 2009.The processes differ greatly from most other healing modalities. It is believed the person seeking the change (Client/Partner) holds the answers within their own subconscious mind for the presenting concern. Since we are a composite of all our past experiences, this is the most appropriate place to find the answer.
The Facilitator assists the Partner in discovering his/her own inner wisdom and making the changes the Partner seeks, not changes the Facilitator thinks are best.
Students who attend the Basic Workshop are called Facilitators after completion of the workshop. This designation is given because we are always “facilitating” the work, even when we are working with ourselves. The person directing any session is called a Facilitator, not a practitioner, doctor, or therapist. This differentiation is very important as a Facilitator “facilitates the processes” so the client can discover the needed answers within their own subconscious mind by utilizing the processes. Facilitators are not the “keepers of the answers”, the clients are!What PSYCH-K® Isn’t
PSYCH-K® is Not Always a Quick Fix Answer
Many people look for fast or immediate relief from whatever is bothering them without ever understanding why the challenge is present in the first place. PSYCH-K® may offer immediate results in some circumstances. In other circumstances it may take some time to unravel the challenges and several sessions may be needed to get the desired result.
Rome wasn’t built in a day. Your life wasn’t either. We are each very complex and unique individuals. It is important to honor the fact we are complex beings. Sometimes complex beings need support and time to discover what is at the root of the issue. Be patient with yourself and remain curious as you utilize PSYCH-K® processes to figure out what has created your challenges.
PSYCH-K® Is Not A “Cure All”
PSYCH-K is NOT a “cure” as we never offer a “treatment.” Our culture has trained us to think we will have immediate gratification and all our ills will be cured. While PSYCH-K® has fascinating and amazing results much of the time we cannot say it will “cure” anyone, again… we are not offering a “treatment.” We have to realize we are on a journey, a spiritual journey. This journey is full of challenge, risk and growth. We grow from challenges when we apply ourselves and continue to learn. Living life can be fulfilling, exciting, scary, and at some point in our future we will ultimately die. We can never say PSYCH-K® will “cure”. We can say PSYCH-K® will enhance our life and help us understand ourselves more fully, regardless of what is happening in our life.
PSYCH-K® Is Not Right For Everyone
PSYCH-K® is most effective for people who are really committed to getting results. It is best suited for people who are highly self-responsible and determined. Using the processes may require confronting frustrating, uncomfortable or unpleasant beliefs we hold about others or ourselves. It is best suited for people who are curious and willing to approach their life with openness and a loving desire to change. PSYCH-K® calls us to step into our personal power and confront that which we may have been running from for a long time. If you’re ready to change, PSYCH-K® can work wonders in your life!
PSYCH-K®/PER-K® is a helpful resource and may offer benefits for many physiological, psychological, and spiritual concerns. It is NOT a substitute for medical diagnosis, drug therapy, surgery, radiation, or other conventional medical interventions or mental health assistance. Proper medical exams and diagnostic evaluations by your physician or other mental health professionals are an important aspect for wellbeing. PSYCH-K® is strictly limited to the modification of beliefs and their relationship to wellbeing.
