Hunter Bags Depression & Anxiety, Then Fixes Smile

Last week I promised another Success from Australia, so here's an e-mail I received on the 4th of October. This is the sort of thing that gets me up every day to do what I do, in deep gratitude. I had the privilege of having this writer in my Advanced Workshop in Melbourne in July, which was organised by the magnificent Gary and Mary O'Brien. I say, Clog on, Philip! (I spelled organised the way the Aussies do.)

Hi Larry,

I don't mean to clog your e-mails, but I have to tell you about the amazing benefits I have had with PSYCH-K and my patients. I use PSYCH-K all the time in my physiotherapy clinic in Melbourne. I have helped so many people that I can't even count them.

Recently I helped a woman who had suffered ten years of depression, anxiety and cervical/thoracic pain. After only one Core Belief Balance [an Advanced balance - Ed.] she has no pain at all and is able to look people in the eye and say what she thinks. She has no depression and can't get the smile off her face. Thank you so much, Larry. After 25 years in practice, this is truly the most amazing modality.

With love, Philip Hunter

No Bone-Us-Point with PSYCH-K

Hi Larry,

I am a Naturopath practising in Perth, Western Australia. My husband and I did the Basic PSYCH-K course in August, and I've begun using it in clinic with astounding results. Two clients really warmed my heart and I'd like to share their stories with you.

The first is a lady with whom I've been working for some time. Twenty five years ago she developed cancer and, being a nurse, went the standard medical route. Mistakes were made, however, and even though she recovered from cancer she was badly burned from excess radiation. When she confronted her doctors they were unable to hide the records from her and they told her that in about twenty years she would probably develop leukemia. Talk about pointing the bone!!! [I'm told by Aussie Wunderkind Mary O'Brien that "Pointing the bone" means invoking a curse; the term is derived from the Aboriginal culture. Ed.]

Right on cue she began worrying about every symptom; a headache became a brain tumor, weak legs became MS. She was truly tortured and, to make it worse, felt guilty that she did not trust God enough to take care of her. I did two sessions with her, and when she came in yesterday, it was as if a heavy burden had been lifted. She smiled at me, hugged me, and said "Is it possible I can get 'me' back again? I feel like my old self, and I feel that I can plan now for my son and his new wife to visit in January."

I had done lots of other emotional-release kinds of work, but PSYCH-K was fast and efficient when we focused on wellness.

The second is a lady who used to be a man and who earns her living "selling her body." Last night she looked at me and said that she was meant to meet me, so she could move into a different area of her life. We've been concentrating on self-worth and new vocations. She is now working as a real estate sales person and has reduced her other business by half. She will drop it completely once she gets some commissions, which is the area we are now concentrating on.

I can't fully express how wonderful it is to have the tools to be able to help others in such a meaningful way. Thank you and Rob Williams for all the inspiring work you are doing. The world truly can become a better place.

Yours in health and happiness,

Helen Helms

Who Is Minding the Mind?

Who is Minding the Mind? Of course, we PSYCH-K facilitators know the answer to this question. But, it is nice to know that empirical research seems to be supporting the notion that the subconscious mind is continuously making decisions for us - all without our knowing it. A recent article in the New York Times by Benedict Carey entitled, "Who's Minding the Mind", outlines the latest trends in psychological research on the power of the subconscious mind.

As Carey reports: "New studies have found that people tidy up more thoroughly when there’s a faint tang of cleaning liquid in the air; they become more competitive if there’s a briefcase in sight, or more cooperative if they glimpse words like “dependable” and “support” — all without being aware of the change, or what prompted it. Psychologists say that “priming” people in this way is not some form of hypnotism, or even subliminal seduction; rather, it’s a demonstration of how everyday sights, smells and sounds can selectively activate goals or motives that people already have."

"More fundamentally, the new studies reveal a subconscious brain that is far more active, purposeful and independent than previously known. Goals, whether to eat, mate or devour an iced latte, are like neural software programs that can only be run one at a time, and the unconscious is perfectly capable of running the program it chooses. Sometimes those goals are in line with our conscious intentions and purposes, and sometimes they’re not.”

Older "studies of products promising subliminal improvement, for things like memory and self-esteem, found no effect. Some scientists also caution against overstating the implications of the latest research on priming unconscious goals. ..Yet, "most in the field now agree that the evidence for psychological hot-wiring has become overwhelming."

"The new research on priming makes it clear that we are not alone in our own consciousness. We have company, an invisible partner who has strong reactions about the world that don’t always agree with our own, but whose instincts, these studies clearly show, are at least as likely to be helpful, and attentive to others, as they are to be disruptive."

Practitioner to Facilitator

I have come to understand PSYCH-K-ers call themselves Facilitators. You learn something new every day. I hope I've not created any confusion in changing this PSYCH-K related blog from Psych-K Practitioner to PSYCH-K FACILITATOR as well as changing the URL address. Of course if you're reading this the confusion has now passed...

Larry Valmore's Success Stories: "No More Nerves"

No More Nerves on Grating
or Mum's the Word
or Climb High, Sigh Low

Larry Valmore

This past May, I had the privilege of spending the day in Hermannsdorf, Germany (about 30 minutes south of Munich), with the lovely Manuela Kroos. She is German, but is quite fluent in English, which she speaks with a mixture of German and British accents (from my Yankee point of view). She sends the following Success. She does make a few slight errors writing English, but hey ˜ she does a whole lot better than I would do writing German! I've left her words just as I got them, for authenticity.


A woman with acrophobia came to see me for the second time. I expected it to be a straightforward session, based on past experience with the topic and on working with her previously.

Oh well, the process thought me differently.

The key believes and balances were:

1. "I climb up high, look down and feel ok." Did a VAK to the Future resulting in "I discovered my strength" and then used New Direction balance.
2. "I trust myself and listen to my inner voice." Did a VAK to the Future resulting in "I'm happy now," used Resolution Balance.
3. "It's easy for me to receive love from others." Did a VAK, one photo came up (she hugs her mum) resulting in "I let go of blockades." Again, Resolution Balance.

Besides the three key balances, we did a couple believes from the [7 Categories of Change] sheets. The central issue was the relationship with her mum, which could have been the cause of the acrophobia. After the session we went to a barn with very high silos and steel grating balconies/walks on top of the silos. She had tried to climb up several weeks ago but couldn't get up. This time she climbed all the way up to the top, walked around, and looked down. She couldn't believe it. What a joy!

Lots of love from Herrmannsdorf,


Manuela Kroos
