Life is a question of balance…

This booklet describes how your subconscious mind affects four key
aspects of your life: health, wealth, success and relationships.
In this document, you will discover how and why the subconscious mind
has such an impact on the quality of the life that you lead…and the
patterns of experience and behaviour that you encounter…
…again and again as the years roll by.
Ultimately, you will learn about how to use a form of psychology,
called PSYCH-K®, to program your subconscious mind to attain and
achieve more in your life. And in particular, you will discover about how to
use PSYCH-K® to attain and achieve: improved health, increased wealth,
impressive success and enhanced relationships.
By the time you finish reading, you will realise that new research from the
cutting edge of psychology and biology now makes it entirely possible for
you to re-write any negative or outmoded belief statements that you feel
to be getting in the way of any of your „life goals‟, quickly and easily.
The result is that you will attract more positive people, events and
outcomes into your life. And further to that, you will discover that
biologists are beginning to acknowledge that even the very cells of your
body are programmable by the thought forms that you rehearse and
practise on a day-by-day basis.

The aim of PSYCH-K® is to help you attain the kind of life you have always wanted… Sometimes you can feel there is so much going on in your life, in terms of hopes, dreams,
anxieties, fears, and insecurities that there‟s not much space left for enjoyment, and the
attainment of health, wealth, success and good relationships.

Most people would like to have more zest for life…
…and a little more health, wealth and success, along with some improved Some of the issues you have to deal with in life
relationships, sounds like a good place to start. may make it feel that you are juggling with fire.

As you read this text, you will probably have seen many commentators
discussing self help techniques on the TV. And you will probably also
have read about many specific techniques in books and magazines.
There are lots of them out there, from Design Human Engineering (DHE)
to Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), from Ericksonian Hypnosis to
Silva Ultra-Mind, and from Life Coaching to Sedonna Method. All of which
have their strengths and their limitations; and all of which exist to help you
initiate change in your life by reprogramming your deep-felt beliefs.
So it should be pretty uncontroversial if we suggest that all four key
aspects of a happy life (health, wealth, success and relationships) are
hugely affected by what we believe about ourselves, within our
subconscious mind…And it should also be pretty uncontroversial to
suggest that three key questions often asked by people seeking a happy,
successful and fulfilled life are: (1) Why is it that so much of my life is
affected by beliefs that are beyond my conscious control? (2) How can I
change deep-seated beliefs that make me unhappy? And, (3) What is the
easiest and most efficient way for me to proceed? Now: Read on and this
booklet will seek to provide answers to these three questions, in a format
that will provide you with all you need to make practical plans to improve
the quality of your future.

Ultimately, you will discover that an approach to applied psychology, Key points to keep in mind: PSYCH-K® gives you tools

to make friends with your subconscious mind … and that by using
PSYCH-K®, you can find out: (1) what it is you really want from life, (2)
what resources you already possess in your subconscious mind that are
assisting you in attaining your dreams, and (3) which negative beliefs are
holding you back…
…You will also (4) discover the good news that, by using PSYCH-K®, you
can root out negative beliefs and strengthen useful beliefs very quickly …
and that thus you can achieve a lot of personal change in a very short
period of time.
If you wonder why such a marvellous new approach to personal change is
now possible, then it is worth summarising later sections of this document
by explaining that PSYCH-K® builds on the successes of many other
powerful approaches to psychology, such as NLP, DHE and Applied
Kinesiology…in themselves three techniques that provide some of the
fastest tools for psychological change available in the world today.
In essence, PSYCH-K® simplifies many existing approaches to
personal development and applied psychology, whilst at the same
time incorporating a number of new insights into the nature of the
relationship that exists between Mind and Body. In particular,
PSYCH-K® makes much use of reported research from the cutting edge of
cellular biology, in which researchers are now realising that it is
environmental factors, such as the patterns of electrical signals that flow
around the human central nervous system, rather than physical DNA, that
controls much of our health…from: the wellness of our bodies, to the
chemistry of our brain, which affects how well we learn, think, act,
communicate and relate to others.
Put the whole package together and you have PSYCH-K® … and you
have access to a set of protocol which give you an ability to alter the
beliefs, the behaviour and the verve with which you approach life, quickly,
simply, easily and yet in a very profound way.
In short: If you would like to experience change in your life, in order to
achieve the zest that you seek, along with better health, enhanced wealth
and improved success, you are welcome to read on and find out more…

The power of the human subconscious mind to heal and to enhance wellness is built into
all tests of new medicines … what is great about PSYCH-K® is that it gives you the
opportunity to tap into this power and embed healthy beliefs in your mind.

There are thousands of documented cases of health improving or
deteriorating on the basis of a patient‟s subconscious beliefs.
For example, there are many stories of people who have misunderstood a
medical diagnosis … and then gone on to get better or worse, in In tests quoted by Professor Ornstein, in his 1988 book The Healing Brain, it appears that
even surgical procedures are often little better than placebo in terms of initiating a healing
accordance with the prediction they thought they had heard. Or as effect. More recently, the 2002 July 11 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine
another example, there are plenty of well known stories of famous reported that a placebo group who received imitated surgery for knee problems
individuals who have set their mind to becoming well and have then done sometimes received greater health benefits than those who received the surgery for real.
so against all the odds.
In fact, our health is so dominated by our subconscious beliefs that all
trials of new medicines have to be conducted with not only the patient
being unaware of whether they are taking real medicine or an inert sugar
pill (called a placebo), but also with the doctor being kept in the dark.
In short, all the scientific evidence points to the fact that the human
subconscious brain is easily influenced and - if we leave that
programming to random events – that influence may or may not always
be beneficial to our state of well-being.
For those who like statistics, Professor Ornstein‟s book, The Healing
Brain, indicates that placebo medicines can often be effective up to about
sixty to eighty percent of the time – and sometimes even more, depending
on the depth of belief. So programming your subconscious really can
have an impact on your wellness. The major obstacle to health and
wellness being finding a way to achieve such „programming‟.

The problem is that the health benefits that derive from the so-called PSYCH-K® is a natural first step towards a fitter and a healthier life-style.
placebo effect are difficult to attain because as soon as you realise that
you are playing with your beliefs then doubt can begin to creep in, and the
placebo effect begins to evaporate. In short, unless you know what you
are doing, programming your subconscious mind can be a difficult and a
challenging process…
In contrast…when you know how to use PSYCH-K®, you have access to
protocol that can enable change can take place in a matter of minutes!
Forget any image you may have of people who try to consciously re-
program their beliefs, by repeating affirmations such as “day by day I am
becoming more healthy” or “day by day I am loosing weight” or “day by
day I am free from cravings for sugar”.
Recent estimates indicate that the subconscious has a power that is in
the order of a million times greater than that of the conscious mind. So
parroting positive words and images for a few minutes a day is unlikely to
have much impact on your overall health when those few repetitions are
counter-balanced by the impact on your body that derives from beliefs
and attitudes embedded in a part of your brain that is both a million times
more powerful and is also working 24/7. This is why „will power‟ always
struggles in the face of deep-set desires and emotions. It‟s like letting a
feather weight boxer in the ring with a champion heavyweight!
Clearly, if you want to use your brain to obtain a change in your health,
you need to get your subconscious thought forms working for you,
because if you can do this…you will then have access to a medical
intervention that is as powerful…and often more powerful…than the best
that scientific or alternative forms of therapy can offer.
PSYCH-K® gets to the heart of the matter and uses protocol that
effectively implant new and positive beliefs into the subconscious, so that
they are there working on your behalf, every minute of every day, counter-
balancing any conscious misgivings you might have about the process.
Giving you access to your best chance at optimum health.
Points to Remember #1: Your subconscious mind is far more powerful
and pervasive than your conscious mind.
Points to Remember #2: PSYCH-K® gives you the tools you need to
reprogram your subconscious, which makes any process of personal
change relatively quick and easy…

Whatever your concept of wealth,

from a big bank balance that can buy you what you want
to a balanced life style that provides you with peace of mind,
PSYCH-K® is a great investment for your future.

Wealth means different things to different people. To some, wealth
equates to having money in the bank. To others, the word „wealth‟ is
synonymous with political power. While, to others again, the notion of
wealth is synonymous with a secure and happy family home. In short, and
for the most part, the word „wealth‟ is a pretty relative term.
But whatever you value in life, it is arguable that two of the greatest bars
to achieving wealth in this life are, first, feelings of confusion and, second,
feelings of low self esteem. People are often confused as to what they
really want, and even if they identify a goal that is important to them, they
often feel they lack the ability to attain their desires. Look around you. You
will easily see people who are confused and who have low expectations.
In the first instance, it is easy to see millions of people grasping after
images sold via advertising, who have never stopped to think about what
they really want from life. In the second instance, we all know people, who
feel guilty and embarrassed to aspire to a lifestyle that is different from the
one in which they grew up as children. And combine the two together: we
can observe hundreds of thousands of people, who embark on all manner
of wild and whacky activities and adventures in order to „find themselves‟.
In short, almost everyone on the face of the earth has a pretty mixed up
set of beliefs and attitudes, embedded within their subconscious mind,
pulling them in multiple directions. And whilst trying to balance all these
beliefs and attitudes, some of which are contradictory, it is difficult to
actually get on with the practical aspects of acquiring skills, making
decisions, spotting opportunities and (importantly) undertaking the work
that is required to obtain what we seek…whatever that might be.

negativity and their body language may put off others who might
otherwise help them. They are liable to turn down offers of help, for the
most bizarre of reasons. They may make mistakes and slips and
experience accidents because they are poorly focussed. They may get
side tracked into goals that contribute nothing towards what they truly
desire. And after a few years have passed…they will look around and
wonder why they are still no nearer actualising their dreams.
Research shows that those who are focussed and motivated often attract
opportunities and success and are constantly scanning for ways to attain
the dream lifestyle to which they aspire. They are fully engaged in the
process of actualising their dreams. Because research also indicates that
we end up attracting the life style on which we focus our minds. Often not
quickly and often not in the manner that we expect, but nevertheless, this
does appear to be a principle at work in the world around us.
This is where PSYCH-K® can be invaluable. PSYCH-K® provides
processes by which to close down any negative beliefs and install a more
positive outlook that will provide a foundation for your future success.
After only a few PSYCH-K® sessions, you will find yourself moving more
and more towards the life experience of someone who is focussed and
motivated…with the huge power of your subconscious brain working on
your behalf 24/7…With your ultimate lifestyle firmly embedded in your
subconscious mind, you can let that mental resource scan for opportunity
and attract into your life that kind of wealth that you seek.
Points to Remember #3: Virtually all the writings and advice of successful
people indicate that in order to progress in life, you need to have a
positive and focussed mindset. For you attract into your life that on which
you consistently dwell and find attractive.
Points to Remember #4: Before you can receive much in the way of
wealth, whatever you conceive wealth to be, you have to feel worthy and
eligible to receive the dream you have set before you. Otherwise, your
subconscious mind will constantly act to sabotage your desires.
Points to Remember #5: PSYCH-K® gives you the tools you need to focus
on what you desire and to embed positive affirmations to help you to
attain your dreams, whilst jettisoning any attitudes and beliefs that might
work against your ultimate success.

Whether you prefer to stay in the foothills, or climb life‟s many mountains,
PSYCH-K® can help you find your natural level and the confidence to do well
within the lifestyle that you elect to follow.

There are many forms of success in life. However, in order to kick off
some discussion, and because sport is so embedded in our culture, we
will begin by discussing athletic success as an easily understood analogy
and example for success in other fields of life.
Anyone with an interest in sport will be aware that the last few decades
have seen a rise in the application of psychology in sport. This is because
it is a scientifically established fact that a contestant‟s beliefs will affect
the outcome of an event.
In terms of winning and losing, belief is a big issue in sport…and indeed
in many other walks of life.
As the famous industrialist Henry Ford once said “whether you believe
you can, or whether you believe you can‟t, you are right”.
The fact is that people who are confident in performing to the best of their
ability, who desire to succeed, and yet who can just as easily take failure
as an opportunity to learn new life lessons, will become the best that they
can be.
In contrast, many of us know people who possess a lot of potential, but
who never actualize that potential into a winning performance.
For example: individuals who lack an expectation for success and
therefore feel unmotivated to push themselves in training; individuals who
are so focused on their anxieties that they become distracted and suffer
accidental injuries that prevent them from training and competing; and
individuals who get so stressed in performance that they perform poorly in
front of a crowd .
And: What is true in sport is true in all walks of life…

…We all know people whose lack of confidence (belief in their ability to The wilder the challenges that you face, the more you will find the mental tools
succeed) constantly draws them back into habits and established patterns associated with PSYCH-K® helpful to your ultimate success
of behaviour … and consistently causes them to feel imprisoned, whether
in a bad job or in dismal relationships or in a humdrum existence.
That feeling of not being able to break through to the next level of success
and of always being trapped within an existing, repeating pattern of life
can be very disturbing and depressing. No wonder that so many people
turn to prescribed medication, alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and a whole host
of illegal substances.
The fact is that if your mind‟s eye lacks a mental image of a future to
which you aspire with joy and confidence, then your subconscious will do
all it can to help you avoid the fears that you reflect up in your moment of
At best, this means a constant and grinding war with your subconscious,
as you struggle to push down the fears that threaten to well up inside, so
that you are no longer conscious of your anxieties.
At worst, this means using all manner of chemical and diversionary tactics
to help you pretend that the fears and the anxieties don‟t affect you.
Points to Remember #6: As we have previously stated, your
subconscious is attracted to helping you towards those aspects of life on
which you focus and to which you feel attracted.
Points to Remember #7: If negativity, anxiety, fear or stress is associated
with success then your subconscious will work hard to ensure you remain
unsuccessful. Similarly, if there is a sense that you will lose something
you value, by becoming successful, then your subconscious will work
diligently in the background to sabotage your best efforts. And
remember that your subconscious is a million times more powerful and
also switched on for a much greater part of the day, than your conscious
mind. Real, deep-felt positivity is therefore key to making progress in life.
Points to Remember #8:If you want to root out negativity, anxiety, fear
and stress…or if you want to embed positivity, then PSYCH-K® can
enable you to do so quickly and easily.

All relationships start with hundreds of subliminal messages passing

back and forth between your subconscious mind
and the subconscious minds of those around you: so you need to ensure that your
subconscious mind is sending out the right signals…

A huge component of human communication takes place at a subliminal
level and nearly all this communication is mediated and controlled by the
subconscious mind. Little wonder that the degree to which your
subconscious is in tune with your conscious desires will affect your
success in relationships.
If you are seeking out a partner in life, and are filled with fear and anxiety ,
then every time you speak to a member of the opposite sex, you can
expect your fear and anxiety will communicate itself … which is not the
greatest of aphrodisiacs! Reflect on some of the social situations that you
have experienced over the years…
…You may have been aware of feeling uncomfortable around some
people and not been able to put your finger on why that is. The answer is
that their non verbal cues for fear and anxiety have probably been picked
up by your subconscious mind, which has then made you feel fearful and
anxious in response, by flooding your blood stream with chemicals and
enzymes that cause you to feel anxious and uncomfortable, yourself. Not
a recipe for a potential friendship…let alone a possible romance.

mind will flood your blood system with adrenalin and cause a partial shut
down in your ability to think clearly. In which case, you may find yourself
at a loss for words and unable to articulate what you think, clearly and
coherently. All of which does not put forth a good impression …nor does it
make it easy to make new friends and influence people.
But think for a moment…
Where does all this fear and anxiety come from?
And, Does it always have to be this way?
What if your subconscious produced feelings of confidence and joy,
exhilaration and liveliness, whenever you speak to a new person or have
to address a group…or even when you are talking to friends and family
you have known for years. How much do you think that your newly
enlivened life might positively impact them…and crate a whole range of
new opportunities in your relationships…old and new.
Points to Remember #9: Your subconscious mind plays a major part in
setting the tone for your relationships with people around you. And it
works hard to implement that which it senses in your emotions and in your
imagination. It works hard to cause your expectations to come to pass:
whether those expectations be positive…or whether they be negative.
Points to Remember #10: A lot of your expectations about how
relationships will unfold have to do with your core beliefs about yourself,
rather than anything to do with the beliefs and behaviours of other people.
People who think or feel badly about themselves often filter out positive
comments and gestures of acceptance, whilst people who think well of
themselves can confidently weather and ignore any negativity that they
Points to Remember #11: As you might expect, PSYCH-K® provides a
number of easy-to-use techniques to move into a more positive frame of
mind and also a number of easy-to-use techniques to implant a series of
positive expectations into your subconscious mind…so that those around
you will naturally find you easier to relate to.

and that each mini-brain works semi independently of the others, such is why you can be

processes can have such a powerful and profound impact on
your subconscious mind, and thus upon the health, wealth,
success and relationships that you experience.

that is presented in our booklet entitled Executive Intuition).

The last few decades have seen a vast increase in our understanding of the internal
workings of both mind and brain, as researchers have had access to scanners that can
peer into the working brain and measure the electrical impulses generated while the mind
is in motion. From top left to bottom right: EEG, HEG, MRI, and SQUID.

The story so far…

In our discussions thus far, we have highlighted the fact that health,
wealth, success and relationships, are hugely impacted by the positive
and/or negative beliefs embedded within the mind, as a whole…and often
within the subconscious mind, in particular.
But, by now, you might be wondering about why this is so…and if you are
prone to wonder…you will be interested to understand the psychological
and biological basis for some of the statements made in Section One of
this booklet, where on a number of occasions we skimmed over making
any form of detail explanation.
Here in this section, Section Two, we will discuss some of the models of
mind that currently dominate within the fields of psychology, and which
help make sense of many of the feelings of frustration you may have
experienced when you have tried to make changes to your life in the past.
To this end, we begin with some observations about the evolving nature
of the human brain, from conception until adulthood, which will help you to
understand why there are so many strange and bizarre aspects to the life
and behaviour of your subconscious mind…and why it is likely that those
around you appear to act in ways that you might perceive to be eccentric.

Ironically, our ability to be discerning adults ultimately detracts from our
ability to access whole swathes of our mind, which can ultimately lead us
to be non-discerning…a bit like upgrading your computer software and
downgrading your computer hardware, which as many readers will realise
leads to watching the mouse cursor for minutes or even hours at a time….
From the perspective of PSYCH-K®, the preceding research is worth
noting for two key reasons…
First, up until the age of twelve, the brain acts like a sponge that is so
powerful that a child can learn to imitate up to four spoken languages
whilst simultaneously learning the non verbal behaviours associated with
each. Thus, what happens to us in our formative years has a huge impact
on the programming of our subconscious mind.
Second, after birth, we all experienced six to twelve years containing a
mix of good and bad experiences, all of which were quickly input into the
subliminal reaches of our mind, using Delta, Theta and Alpha frequencies
of brain activity. During this time, very little in the way of filtering took
place, thus good experiences are stored alongside bad. And useful
insights are stored alongside misperceptions.

A simple model to get us started The simplest model of the mind splits it into two…conscious and subconscious.

Now lets look at the mind from a slightly different perspective…the

simplest model of the mind can be likened to an iceberg in which a small
amount of conscious thought is visible and can be reflected upon, whilst
in the depths of the brain, a far larger set of beliefs and mental processes
are responsible for something like 95% of what we think and do.
For example, most people will have had the experience of reading or
working or driving for several minutes, or even for several hours, only to
look up and not be able to consciously recall what has taken place during
the process of reading, working or driving…What has happened is that
the individual concerned has simply phased out of consciousness and
relied on subconscious processes to keep them going.
More worryingly, brain scans indicate that people often make decisions in
their subconscious mind and then logically rationalise those decisions,
imagining the decision to be conscious, logical and rational, when in fact it
is not. The reality is that we all think that we are more logical than we Trying to use the conscious mind to effect change in the subconscious is like trying
really are…which is why you can observe so many eccentric people to compare the power of a toy pedal car with a formula one race car.
around you…or at least people who are eccentric from your point of view.
According to cellular biologist Bruce Lipton, some researchers estimate
that the subconscious mind is processing in the order or 40 million bits of
information, in the same time frame that the conscious mind can process
40. In short, if the photo of an iceberg were blown up to the size of a
poster, while your subconscious brain processed the whole image, your
conscious mind would be focused on a single small dot.
This is why the parroting of positive affirmations often has little impact on
deeply held attitudes, beliefs, compulsions and emotions. The affirmation
is being practised by the conscious mind, in a Beta state of
consciousness. As the iceberg metaphor reminds us, this is a state which
is in the order of a million times weaker than the subconscious mind, in
which many negative attitudes, beliefs, compulsions and emotions are
„housed‟. It is also a state of mind which is incompatible with tuning into
thoughts encoded into memory while in Alpha, Theta or Delta.
Taken together, the preceding two paragraphs explain why it is that many
people experience the process of personal change and personal
development to be a slow and difficult challenge. What is needed is an
approach that can be used to directly effect change in the subconscious
mind. Because then change becomes easy, quick and long lasting.

A second point that is clear is as follows... You want a mind that is fast and well maintained,
not one that flushes away the opportunities with which life presents you.
If our subconscious mind is often making decisions for us, and if our
subconscious mind is often hijacking our conscious mind, without us even
being aware, we need to ensure that the criteria on which our
subconscious decisions are being made are appropriate. For example, if
we have subliminal expectations with regard success or failure, in health,
business, finance, sport or in personal relationships, our subconscious will
be working at all times to ensure those expectations come to pass.
Thus, it is important that our subliminal expectations are appropriate to
our life goals. As one instance of this, the author once met a businessman
who was worried that his business would become too successful and
would thus become out of control. He therefore shied away from many
decisions that might lead to additional success. All of which caused a lot
of friction between the entrepreneur and his partners.
As the famous industrial Henry Ford once said, “Whether you believe that
you can, or whether you believe that you can’t, you are right”. Our
subconscious mind is so powerful that the ideas, attitudes and
behaviours, programmed into the subliminal reaches of our brain,
dominate our health, wealth, success and relationships in life. Thus, we
often get what we expect in life…and thus our life experiences often end
up re-enforcing our expectations and prejudices. Behind the scenes, our
subconscious mind has been directing the paths we have taken.
Bizarre as it may seem, a few bad childhood experiences and a few
childhood misunderstandings can affect the future course of your life,
even though you may feel you have consciously resolved the emotions
and memories associated with those experiences and misunderstandings.
The issue is that what you consciously believe that you think and feel may
be at odds with what you really think and feel in the deeper reaches of
your psyche. If you imagine each level of consciousness, Beta, Alpha,
Theta and Delta, as a separate radio station, you might be playing
uplifting music on one station and punk rock on another.
For example, some people have been taught to consciously parrot
positive affirmations and to use conscious visualisations, which has made
them feel better on a conscious level, but which has left nagging and
unresolved feelings at a deeper level of their awareness. Unresolved
feelings that they know affect their ideas, attitudes, expectations and
behaviours…and unresolved feelings that they know ultimately affect their
level of success in life.

The brain, as a whole, is like a banana split, The original split brain model, with the left brain as the seat of logic
with three main components and some limited inter-connections. and the right brain as the centre of creativity.

The cutting edge of neuro-science.

Now is the time to add a couple of additional sophistications to our model
of mind…
In the 1970s and 80s, it was popular for brain researchers to describe the
brain as being split into two parts, left and right. With the left brain viewed
as logical and the right brain conceived as being more creative in nature.
Since the early 1990s, it has become more common to refer to the brain
as being split into three main components: left, right and lower (as in
located physically lower within the skull); with the lower brain being
viewed as the seat of emotion and the seat of the subconscious.
To be more precise…the left brain is now viewed as a fully functioning
mini brain in which we experience verbal thoughts and in which we
process logic….the right brain is now viewed as a fully functioning mini
brain in which we experience sensory images, like pictures, sounds,
feelings, tastes and smells….
…while the lower brain, is viewed as a fully functioning brain which filters
all the mass of sensory input from our nervous system, controls all our
non verbal communication, such as tone of voice and body language,
ensures that the life support functions of the body keep working, controls
and coordinates our movement and is the seat of our emotions.

From the perspective of this booklet, the main point to note here is that We need techniques to help the three parts of the brain, all of which operate at different
the three mini-brains have a hard time communicating with one speeds and ages of intellect, to cooperate and live happily, one with another, like a family
in which there is love and respect between individual family members.
another…because the left brain is verbal, the right brain is specialised in
manipulating imagery (in terms of pictures, sounds and kinaesthetic) while
the lower brain is either emotional or processing information completely
below the level of human consciousness.
And to make matters even more complex, not only do the mini-brains
communicate differently, but they also communicate at different
speeds and with different levels of intellect.
In order to process verbal information, the left brain has to be slow and
focussed. The left brain has sacrificed speed for intellect.
In contrast, the right brain runs at a faster speed because it has to
process images. However, to run at a faster speed, the power of the right
brain to follow logical and intellectual arguments is far diminished. For
ease of understanding, you might imagine the intellectual power of the
right brain to be akin to a young teenager.
Finally, it is important to understand that in order for the subliminal
aspects of the lower brain to process a massive million times more
information than the conscious mind, it has to make an enormous
sacrifice in terms of intellectual power. Thus the intellect of the lower brain
can be likened to that of a five, six or seven year old child.
Stop here and reflect for a moment, and you will almost certainly be able
to recall at least one instance in your life in which you were in two or even
three minds about a difficult decision…and this was because each mini-
brain had a different view about what you should being doing….which
means that next time you find your self “ummming” and “ahhhhing” and
verbally running through a plan, whilst imagining a set of different
possibilities and feeling drawn to a different option entirely, you will know
what is taking place.
Your three mini-brains are finding it difficult to reach a consensus of
agreement. All of which highlights why it is so difficult to gain access to
the subconscious mind and peer into what is taking place in the lower
depths of the mind. The conscious and subconscious parts of the brain do
not naturally communicate, one with another.
And often they are so frustrated with one another that they are in a state
of conflict…or at best in a state of Cold War…which is not the best
context in which to attempt to engage in creative or intuitive thought.

computer uses a different operating system: Windows, Linux and
Macintosh. Thus, none naturally wants to communicate with the others.
And all three computers are linked via a narrow band phone connection,
which means that data proceeds between the computers at a relatively
slow rate. In this scenario, while all computers can co-ordinate and can
share information, everything takes place at a slowed rate.
As a second metaphor, we could say that one of the reasons that the
three mini-brains struggle to communicate with one another is that they
each naturally operate at different frequencies of electrical activity and are
thus slightly out of tune with one another. Thus we can say that the more
we can get the three mini-brains in tune with one another, the easier it will
be for them to share communication, and thus the easier it will be for
them to coordinate and to work at a faster rate.
We therefore need techniques that enable us to encourage the three mini-
brains to work together, so that we can become more conscious of the
contents of all three components of the mind. We also need the three
mini-brains to collaborate together so that the good perceptions in one
mini-brain can be used as a resource to cancel out the mistaken
perceptions in another. This is especially the case when we are trying to
plumb the depths of the lower brain, which is where many of our
subconscious childhood and childish perceptions are stored.
If we correct misperceptions in the lower brain then we get the huge
resources of the subconscious mind onside to help us attain our goals life.
This is important not just for the state of health of our mind, but also for
the state of health of our physical body.

As one practical example, the lower mini-brain has a massive influence There is a line of argument that the lower brain is responsible for co-ordinating aspects of

lower brain has a huge influence on the chemicals that flood your
bloodstream and the muscle tensions in various parts of your body, which
you interpret as attitudes and feelings to situations and people around us.
Thus, the programming within your lower brain affects a huge amount of
your attitudes and behaviours towards other people. It controls all the non
verbal signals that you send out, the majority of which are below your
level of awareness…but which then affect how other people relate to you.
As another important example, there are an increasing number of people
who argue for a metaphor of the brain as an antenna, which distributes
computing power both throughout the central nervous system and also
within the low level bio-magnetic field which surrounds and suffuses the
human body. And also as an antenna that is attenuated to the low level
bio-magnetic fields of other people and an antenna attenuated to the
varying energetic fields of different materials in the world around us.
This may be why some people, who are naturally good at intuitive Put several magnetic fields in a room and they will affect one another.

fortunate, being in the right place at the right time.
These fortunate people are tuned into one of the most ancient parts of the
lower brain, which literally does have a “sixth sense”, albeit one that is
totally explainable by conventional physics and even (to an extent)
measurable, using conventional scanning equipment.
However, if your lower brain is negatively programmed, you may be all
but consciously oblivious to the opportunities that surround you. Your
lower brain filters out all the useful intuitions long before they have a
chance to be passed onto your adult conscious mind.
As a final example, it is becoming increasingly evident that the
programming in your lower brain affects many aspects of your physical
health and well-being…as we will discuss on the following page. Thus,
ensuring an appropriate belief set is one key to obtaining a life
characterised by health and vitality.
In short, we are back to the notion that our mental programming affects
our health, wealth, success and relationships…

More about the mind–body interface If you want a really mind boggling insight into the degree to which your lower brain can

behaviour of the cells in your body to a much larger extent than previously
imagined. As previously mentioned, there is now clear evidence that
subconscious thought processes, embedded at the levels of Alpha, Theta
and Delta brainwaves, directly affect the physical cells within your body,
which in turn directly affects many aspects of your health and well being.
Importantly, the new biological field of epigenetics now denies the
dominance of genes as the controllers of our bodies, minds and emotions!
It transpires that genes are no more than the blue prints for constructing
proteins. It also transpires that the “construction workers”, whose job it is
to interpret the blue prints, have a good deal of latitude over the ways in
which your genetic “plans” are interpreted. And this interpretation is
mediated via the thought forms, electro-magnetic fields and the chemicals
to which those construction workers are exposed. All of which goes a long
way towards generating a scientific explanation for the “placebo”
effect…and a whole new approach to generating more effective
medicines and performance enhancing techniques and technologies.
For example, the subconscious belief structures in your mind affect the
chemical composition of your blood, which in turn, affects how you “feel”,
which affects the degree to which you are able to fulfil your full potential,
in terms of: your ability to focus and to concentrate, your ability to be
creative, your ability to learn and absorb new ideas, your ability to relax,
your ability to tap intuitions and your ability to relate to those round you.
To summarise a whole field in a single paragraph, it transpires that the
behaviour of each individual cell in your body is controlled by hundreds of
thousands of switching proteins on the surface of each cell, which are in
turn affected by the physical, biological, chemical, electrical and energetic
aspects of the environment in which the cell is expected to work.
In short, what your subconscious mind believes to be true has a huge
impact on your health, wealth, success and relationships. It is therefore
essential that we all have access to techniques and technologies which
enable us to tune into our inner beliefs, and which then enable us to
encourage those belief structures that will give us more of what we desire
in life…whilst diminishing the power and influence of those belief
structures that will work against our success and well-being.

subconscious mind. In effect what you need to do is to: (1) map the belief
structures in your lower brain, (2) identify those belief structures that are
useful and helpful to your aims and ambitions, (3) root out those beliefs
structures that are limiting or damaging to your aspirations, and (4) –
where required - embed more powerful and focused beliefs where a new
sense of vision and capability is required. All of which is far simpler than
you might have previously imagined, if you have only read and heard
about psychological therapies, developed prior to the 1980s…
Conventional Nineteenth and Twentieth Century therapies emphasise the
use of will power and positive affirmations. However, while the use of will
power, alone, certainly does make it possible to use a number of
visualisation techniques to make some limited changes – and in particular
to embed some new conscious beliefs – it is not generally possible to use
such conventional approaches to effect change on many of the deeply
held subconscious belief structures that may have been organising and
controlling your emotions and your physiology for many years…
It is also possible to use a variety of hypnotic techniques, such as those
derived from Ericksonian Hypnosis and NLP, to make some really big
changes within the lower brain, when a therapist puts a client into a
suggestible state of mind, akin to deep Theta or deep Delta. However, the
effectiveness of such an approach does tend to depend upon the
expertise of the therapist and the receptivity of the client…which limits the
application of such techniques.
This brings us to PSYCH-K®, which provides us with a series of simple
protocol by which to (1) simply, easily and quickly ask questions of the
subconscious mind and map belief structures (whilst remaining in a Beta
state of mind akin to normal adult consciousness), (2) identify those belief
structures that are useful and helpful, (3) tune into a “reflective” brain
frequency in which it becomes easy to root out those beliefs that are
limiting or damaging, and – where required – to (4) embed more powerful
and focused beliefs which will enable us to more easily attain the life
goals that we feel to be important…All of which makes PSYCH-K®, very
interesting to anyone who wants to effect positive change within their life.

Remember our overall aim in PSYCH-K® If your life feels over grown with emotional issues and challenges, and your circumstances
is to give you added zest for the life that you lead. are complex and confusing, then imagine this to be an over grown garden…and
PSYCH-K® to be a way to convert the jungle into a peaceful and beautiful Zen garden.

PSYCH-K® - aims and objectives:

If you have read the preceding sections, which discuss the degree to
which your subconscious mind affects your health, wealth, success and
relationships … then … you will be aware that your subconscious has a
huge impact on each of these aspects of life…and thus has a huge
impact on the degree to which you feel a zest for life.
Sometimes your subconscious is carrying so much in the way of
emotional baggage and fears and anxieties for the future, along with
insecurities with respect your ability to succeed in life that it can feel like a
back garden that has become overgrown and choked out with weeds.
The purpose of PSYCH-K® is to clear out the undergrowth, to give you a
chance to see what there is that you like and dislike in the subliminal
reaches of your mind, and to then give you an opportunity to redesign and
plant new ideas …
…converting an uninviting wilderness into a place in which you can
experience peace, calm, relaxation, along with confidence and certainty.

Get it wrong and the tantrums and emotional outbursts make life a living hell.

Making friends with your subconscious mind:

By now you will realise that the subconscious mind is extremely powerful,
and yet because of all the fears and anxieties and issues that you face,
you may wonder if your subconscious mind could ever be your friend.
Well …
…The truth is that, while you may be subject to a few mistakes on the part
of your subconscious mind, the situation is not a dire as it might appear.
Your subconscious really wants to be your friend!
It is just not always sure how to serve you well.
And because it feels you have ignored it for years, your subconscious
oscillates between doing its best and throwing the occasional tantrum…as
would you if you were ignored by those around you on a daily basis.
With this metaphor in mind, PSYCH-K® can help you by providing you
with a simple line of communication between the conscious and the
subconscious aspects of your mind. This enables you to listen to what the
subconscious has to say, which causes the subconscious to feel good.
Such a line of communication also enables you to explain how you would
like the lower brain to assist you…at which point, your subconscious
processes will become your best friend and work powerfully, effectively
and efficiently to secure a future that is more congruent with your hopes
and your aspirations.

culture in which we live is that change has to be slow and painful. In fact,
change can be fast and joyous…but unfortunately, that model of
psychology does not lead to very many dramatic and award wining films,

Historically, Theatre Stars and then, later, Media Bosses and Film Stars
became hugely influenced and entranced by the drama of talk-based
psycho therapies, developed by psycho-analysts, like Freud, even though
all the evidence is that such therapies consistently fail to effect change.
The point here is that all media programming thrives on drama, and thus
the dominant model of the mind in the mainstream movies and television
shows and news bulletins has been one rooted in the dramatic belief that
within each of us there is an ongoing war between logic and emotion …
which of course makes for good drama and enthralling shows … but
tends to make for a poor understanding of human psychology.

another, and when they are taught how to communicate one with another,
many problems simply begin evaporate.
Any technique that begins to set up a line of communication between the
conscious and the subconscious aspects of the mind can benefit you.
Visualisation techniques are certainly a start. NLP and Ericksonian

Systematic Kinesiology are also beneficial.

A description of a PSYCH-K® session The PSYCH-K® facilitator and client chat and identify a set of positive beliefs
that would be suitable to counteract and displace any negative beliefs
Mapping the beliefs in the subconscious mind
A PSYCH-K® session will typically begin with a facilitator (a person trained
in PSYCH-K®) chatting with a client. The facilitator will direct the
conversation, with the aim of locating one or more key negative beliefs
that the client finds „troubling‟. For example, imagine (1) a student who
feels that they are simply not intelligent enough to learn or (2) a business
person who feels that they are unlikely to be successful.
The facilitator and the client then decide upon one or more positive
affirmations that can be used to install a positive belief that will replace
any negative beliefs, identified as a result of the conversation described in
the preceding paragraph. For example, affirmations that might be given to
the student and to the businessman, mentioned in the preceding
paragraph, might be: I learn easily and enjoy my study, or I perceive good
opportunities and intuit opportunities that will lead to success.
In terms of protocol, sometimes the new positive belief statements are
derived from lists created by experienced therapists, and are culled from Keep in mind it is our deep-set beliefs that ultimately affect our emotions, and thus
years of experience talking with clients. In other cases, the statements are ultimately affect how we act and behave in the world in which we find ourselves.
generated completely from the conversation between the facilitator and
the individual client. Remembering that our interest in these statements is
in terms of the way in which deep rooted beliefs affect our emotions.
Finally…in either case…
The client‟s subconscious level of belief in each positive belief statement
is assessed using some standard muscle tests derived from a field of
complementary medicine, called Kinesiology. If you need a
metaphor…you can think of the process of muscle testing as being akin to
a simple lie detector test. If all three mini brains believe a statement then
a muscle will test „strong‟. If one or more of the mini brains disbelieves the
statement then the muscle will test significantly „weaker‟.
After a few minutes of work, the facilitator will have a list of which positive
belief statements are believed and accepted by the subconscious mind
and which are not. This inventory of beliefs is then used to plan what
needs to be done next. And while a description of the testing process may
sound long winded, the actual physical process itself often only takes a
few moments.

Muscle tests are a great way to find out what you really think! Derren Brown‟s book, Tricks of the Mind.
In the UK, there is a Mind Magician, called Derren Brown, who uses a
deep understanding of human psychology to simulate all manner of
psychic phenomena. You can read about his work in books and you can
also view a large body of his work on DVD and video, available from
In his own book, Tricks of the Mind, Brown explains that the relationship
between the body‟s muscles and the contents of the mind of an individual
has been well understood by magicians and stage mentalists, since the
1850s, when J. Randall Brown coined the term “Muscle Reading”: a term
used to refer to noticing small changes in the musculature and muscle
tone of a person with whom you are interacting, and learning to relate
those physical cues to thoughts taking place in the head of that person.
As an example, in one of the TV programmes that document the work of
Derren Brown, we find the mentalist asking a grocer in a market to hide a
small object. Brown then asks the grocer to think of the object but not to
say anything. Using muscle reading alone, Brown navigates his way
around the market and finds the object within a very few minutes. The fact One of Derren Brown‟s DVDs
is that while the object is in the mind of the stall holder, he is emanating
all kinds of physical cues that help Brown to locate the hidden artifact.
Given the link between the subconscious and the physical musculature of
the body, muscle testing is simply a process in which a tester learns to
become more aware of the physical cues given out by a person being
tested, while the person being tested begins to amplify the extent to which
their muscles react to statements which they either believe or
disbelieve…with statements which are believed (to be true) producing
strong muscle tests and a statements which are DIS-believed giving rise
to weak tests.
In practice, after a couple of minutes‟ instruction, most people find giving
and receiving muscles tests very easy and straightforward, and soon
become intrigued by this new window that has been opened into their
mind. Of course, there is also a lot of science to back the use of muscle
tests, but in most cases, the experience of giving and receiving muscle
tests is often a more powerful personal convincer of the degree to which
muscle testing can be used to explore the depths of the subconscious

Some of the science behind muscle testing To find out more about the background of kinesiology
and its use by medical professionals…go to icakusa.com
With regard the science associated with „Muscle Reading‟…
Peer-reviewed research indicates that there is a significant difference in
the strength of a tested muscle, depending on whether the words spoken
by the conscious mind resonate as true within the subconscious. Hence
muscle testing is an ideal way in which to initiate commutation between all
three major aspects of mind and brain.
With regard PSYCH-K®, the specific muscle tests used in PSYCH-K® have
been adapted from those used by an approach to health care, called
Systematic Kinesiology, which is an complementary approach to health
care used by the tens of thousands of trained health care professionals
(such as doctors, nurses and dentists) associated with icakusa.com.

The control of a session rests with the client

While discussing the notion of muscle testing, it is worth underlining that Or to read about a wide range of muscle tests, read
everything that happens within a PSYCH-K® session has to be endorsed Touch For Health, by John Thie
by a strong muscle test.
There is no concept of „one size fits all‟ in the protocol used in a PSYCH-
K® session. All sessions are customised to the very specific needs of each
individual client.
Everything that takes place in a PSYCH-K® session is determined by the
client and not by the practitioner. This is why in PSYCH-K® practitioners
are normally referred to as „facilitators‟ with the role of the facilitator being
very clearly defined as assisting a client through PSYCH-K® processes
rather than doing PSYCH-K® on a client.
The bottom line is that the client is very definitely in control. Only those
PSYCH-K® processes and changes of belief, which resonate as useful
and appropriate are ever used, with the direction of each session being
determined by those ideas and statements which result in a strong
muscle test.
Thus PSYCH-K® is very much an approach to personal development and
to therapy which mixes the ideas formed in the conscious aspects of the
mind with the perceptions embedded within the subconscious.

Making changes in your subconscious belief systems Some of the techniques used to get the three mini brains to coordinate are the same as
those used in schools, under the brand name BrainGym.
The easiest way to replace a negative belief statement is to install a
positive (counter) belief. For example, I expect to succeed to replace I
expect to fail. And the easiest way to achieve such a switch is to get all
three mini-brains working in synchronisation.
To this end, there are several physical postures and/or movement
sequences which promote the physical coordination of the two conscious
brain hemispheres, left and right. These postures and/or movement
sequences also promote coordination between the conscious and
subconscious aspects of the mind. Some of these postures are as easy
as sitting down and enfolding your arms in a specific way; while some are
movement sequences, akin to marching on the spot.
If you would like to know more about using such straightforward sitting
postures and movement techniques to coordinate all aspects of mind and
brain, then you might like to look into the research associated BrainGym
and research associated with Hemi-sync audio devices.
If you like to view some of the academic research projects that indicate the effectiveness
BrainGym uses physical techniques, derived from the work of Educational of integrating the three brain hemispheres using sound, then the book Focusing The
Kinesiologists, to help kids in schools to concentrate more easily. And it Whole Brain, edited by Ronald Russell is worth a read.
does this by using postures and movements to promote better interaction
between both brain hemispheres and between the conscious and
subconscious aspects of the student‟s mind. In contrast, Hemisync uses
specially prepared audio tracks to achieve the same ends. Both have a
wealth of research data associated with them.
In terms of practical outcomes from a PSYCH-K® session, the experience
of facilitators is that if you reflect on a positive belief statement, whilst
utilising an appropriate posture or movement sequence, for a couple of
minutes, the heightened coordination of brain activity seems to resolve
any nagging negative beliefs, which might have been bothering you. Very
quickly, the negative belief is supplanted by the positive affirmation, within
your subconscious.
It may sound strange and it may sound like wishful thinking, but repeated
case study evidence is that the process works pretty much all of the time.
And for those occasions where straightforward postures and movements
are not appropriate, there are a half dozen slightly more sophisticated
protocols, from which you can select…and which can affect change in
more powerful ways.

that if key meridian or chakra points are touched (by either the client or

If you are unfamiliar with the notion of meridians and chakras, it is worth
mentioning that both derive from theories of medicine that are often
referred to as „energy medicine‟ because, when working with meridians
and chakras, a therapist is involved in balancing subtle energies within
the body.
If the notion of „energy medicine‟ and „balancing energies‟ sounds a little
esoteric, it should be noted that theories related to energy medicine are
routinely used in Chinese hospitals, alongside Western, technology-based
medicine. In China, and in many other Eastern nations, the efficacy of
energy medicine is accepted and believed proven, both on the basis of
thousands of years of case study reports and also on the basis of modern
scientific experimentation.
Despite complaints by some Western doctors that there is a dearth of
scientific evidence as to the efficacy of Eastern forms of energy medicine,
the fact is that the evidence is there. It is simply not often translated into
English. And if one reads books, like Vibrational Medicine, by Dr Richard
Gerber and Energy Medicine by Dr James Oschman, it is possible to find
out more about what our colleagues in the East have achieved.
It is also possible to read of similar theories, currently being tested in the
West, by Nobel nominee, Robert O Becker.
In reality, the phrase „lack of scientific evidence‟, when applied to new
forms of treatment for mind or body, really means that no research has
been undertaken in the West because there are no pharmaceutical
companies interested in paying for research that might undermine their
market share. But…politics and economics aside for a moment...
The message to note here is as follows: a few minutes touching an
appropriate PSYCH-K® belief point can dissipate any powerful negative
emotional energies that might be affecting the quality of your life.

Energy: Kirlian photographs of the electric fields around objects.

If you are feeling conservative in nature, then realise that the human
nervous system is electrical in nature and so there is a low level electro-
magnetic field around the human body. In recent years, this has begun to
be directly measured in earnest by physicists, using a SQUID
magnetometer. It can also be inferred using a form of photography
developed in the Soviet Union by a Russian physicist, called Kirlian.
In practical terms, focussing your own personal field can affect the field of
another person. If you have sensitive enough measuring equipment, this
is a measurable exchange of energy, which the facilitator initiates and
which then resonates within the client. In terms of outcomes, this resonant
effect can have a huge emotional impact on a client and dissipate years
of emotional blocks in a relatively short period of time.
If you are open to Eastern beliefs then you can also imagine that the field
around a person to be augmented by Chi and or Aura energy. Though
clearly, for some people, this second explanation is more controversial.

Summary If all of this sounds „complex‟, keep in mind that you don‟t need to understand
any of the psychology in order to enjoy the benefits!
If you want to effect changes in your life, and in particular if you want to
attain and achieve: improved health, increased wealth, impressive
success and enhanced relationships, then you need to provide a conduit
of communication between the conscious and subconscious aspects of
your mind. Only then can you root out attitudes and beliefs that work
against you, and implant new attitudes and beliefs that will work for you.
In the final analysis, logical chat-based approaches to therapy and
personal change are laborious and inefficient – and often end up in
making matters worse. The subconscious either ignores the chat, or
(even worse) takes the discussion of negatives as a set of commands to
recreate those negatives, again and again, in the future.
If you want to make changes in your subconscious then you have to use
the language of the lower brain, which has the verbal intellect of a five or
six year old child. Some creative and imaginative approaches to therapy
can be helpful. So too is the word play and the use of powerful stories and
metaphors, embedded in approaches to psychology, such as NLP. But The whole of this document is here for those who are interested in the background
often there is a need to go further and faster… theory…it is not necessary for the practise and is certainly not necessary to profit from any
…At the root of many of the physical and psychological problems that investment you make in training or therapy sessions,
people face, you will find a plethora of attitudes and beliefs, wired into the
reptilian aspects of the lower brain. This is the very lowest level of
processing that one can model. Here, you need to address the very
fastest and most powerful aspects of the brain, aspects of the brain that
control and affect key life processes. And whilst addressing the reptilian
component of the brain, you need to keep reminding yourself that these
are also the least verbal and articulate components of the mind…
…You therefore need to find a process with which the reptilian mind is
comfortable and then you embed that process within well-defined protocol
because the reptilian mind is attracted by ritual and order and habit.
Thus it is that PSYCH-K® utilises a strict set of protocol, from which
facilitators do not deviate, and in which muscles tests are used. In effect,
a direct line of communication is established in which the conscious mind
can ask questions and the subconscious can provide answers, via
switching the strength of a muscle, either on or off. Further PSYCH-K®
techniques are then used to implant changes, followed by more muscles
tests, to ensure the changes have become „embedded‟.

As we have said before…life requires balance… Remember these: PSYCH-K® gives you tools
for more health, wealth, success and better relationships.

Final words:
Of all the people that I have met who have learned PSYCH-K® or
consulted a PSYCH-K® facilitator, the reaction is always the
same…WOW…everyone is always surprised at how much can be
achieved in a short time, and in a relaxed manner.
If you would like to learn the technique for yourself, it only takes a
weekend, or if you would like to enjoy a therapy session, get in touch with
one of the facilitators listed below.
Remember, the whole aim is to give you a new zest for life…
…to enhance the four key aspects of life that most people seek:
 Health
 Wealth
 Success
 Better Relationships…
