The first part is basic silent self-hypnosis.
The next part gets into profound areas.
Psychology has proven humans have "core beliefs" which are simple base-concepts like...
I am _____
People are ______
Life is ______
So she is getting into re-engineering your core beliefs in the way that she wants them to be, with Byron Katie at the center. This is why her core followers, like Carol Skolnick, refer EVERY thing back to Byron Katie, as a BK Imago is sitting there at the center of her core belief structure.
But this is taking it even further. This is going back into labelling core concepts in the mind, like you do as a young child.
She is just OPENING that part of the mind, which labels "Dog" etc.
She can then insert Byron Katie's Business, into that area of your mind.
Also, this starts the process into SOLIPSISM [www.iep.utm.edu
] which is Byron Katie professed philosphy. But of course, Byron Katie doesn't REALLY believe in Solipsism, as evidenced by her behavior and contracts and her corporation.
Its complete bullshit.
Solipsism is the mental state people are in, when in a hypnotic trance, like a waking dream state.
So she is just moving people into that mental state, so she can re-program your beliefs.
Like I have said all along, Byron Katie is doing VERY sohpisticated and deep belief repatterning with people. And its being use unethically, as its being done to people without their awareness.
This is why for the people who go whole-hog for Byron Katie, every second word out of their mouth is Byron Katie this, Byron Katie that. She has inserted a Byron Katie Imago at the core of their psyche, as that is good for Byron Katie.
But its bad for you, its an extreme abuse of these methods.
These are the methods to literally break-down and reprogram someone's entire psyche. Never give that power to anyone, ever.
Byron Katie is like an unlicensed back-room plastic surgeon, and she will botch the job, and you may die from the infection, that is no exaggeration.
And BK constantly beats the drum about treating PTSD, and PTSD is highly lethal.
These tools are so powerful, you would have to be borderline to do this to people. You can destroy people with the abuse of these methods and tools.
Run it by any experienced psychologist, they will recoil in horror.

THE MORNING WALK
*Meet at 7:00 a.m.
*Walk in silence. As you walk, practice naming the
world-"the scene"-to yourself as if you are God
creating and naming things for for the very first time.
*Announce to the "thing" and to yourself its name in
each moment. As you walk, what do you actually see
right now physically? Name it.
*Stay with "first-generation" thoughts. For example: sky,
flower, insect, tree, cement, shoe, woman.
*As you notice thoughts moving one more generation
away, such as tree with leaves; old beautiful tree; or this
tree would be great to sit under-stop! Just notice.
*Return to simple one-word, first-generation names:
ground, sky, woman, etc.
