Re: Byron Katie (the Work) - hypnotic language patterns, metaphors

· Here are some rough notes about the Byron Katie 5 CD set “A Thousand Names For Joy”. Its important to begin the process of analysis, which is ongoing.
· This is not just a typical CD of strange stories and comments by some lady who sounds kinda “weird”. Not even close. This is some very dangerous material, for certain people with certain vulnerabilities. Some people would just switch it off as it sounds nonsensical to them, but there are those who ‘get it” and get lured into the Dreamworld. As mentioned, its clear that most everything that Byron Katie does has at least a double-meaning…the everyday meaning of the words and images, but also an inner symbolic meaning. This is very common in advanced hypnotherapy, and is actually a preferred way of communicating with the unconscious, as they say in their technical literature.
· That being said, it is still not yet determined if all these advanced operators really do work on the unconscious directly, or if the Influence comes from the forceful personality of the hypnotist, and how all of that interacts. Even just regular folks have made comments about Byron Katie along the lines of…she keeps pushing on people until they agree with her. That is very true as well. She’s pushing on you consciously, and also unconsciously, and socially, and in every other way. In her own images, she uses the metaphors of her “blindly” flailing around trying to “turn the dials written in a foreign language” and listening like a “safecracker” to find that “click”. Again, very common stuff one can see in Ericksonian Hypnotherapy. They often use metaphors of your own unconscious mind communicating within itself in a way that ONLY IT can understand, and assumes it is being done as they speak. They know each human has their own internal secret “language”, and they can only allude to it from the outside. Again, the stuff gets quite complicated, yet it does make sense with some serious study. The difference here is serious Ericksonian style hypnotherapy is usually used fairly ethically. There are some guys out there trying to sell you some of their DVD’s with it, but in the ones that I have seen, they have always always at least suggested “empowerment” for the person. I have not seen anything like this, so far, maybe there are many others doing it too? We’ll see…so BEWARE of the materials of Byron Katie, even this little CD set is very powerful, and could easily trigger very disturbing feelings in a person, headaches, as we shall see. Dangerous stuff for the “right” person who “clicks”. Of course, its all done very cleverly, and with Artistry, so some deniability is fused into its very structure, and any questions about her will get "TurnedAround" into questions about YOU…its all very diabolical.
· The original notes from the first CD are included below…there is more info there too.
· One can get into the more subtle explanations of what is going on with her “stories” but the most common word to explain it is…GROOMING: the process of first building rapport, then slowly taking you from where you are, to where she wants to take you with baby steps, and the occassional blind leap. It is a grooming process..but it all starts with…
· #1) she wants to use CONFUSION to break down your mind, and install confusion. She hammers on you with dozens-hundreds of very rapid meaningless statements, which is a very extreme and abusive version of what some hypnotherapists do to distract the conscious mind.
§ destroying reality with confusion. Nonsense stories to crush your mind. Don’t trust your own thoughts, lose entire world,
§ wants to SCRAMBLE YOUR BRAIN, paradoxical meaningless statements, destroy your mind,
§ disengage your mind from reality, and attach to her.
· #2) implant her SUGGESTIONS, using hypnotic Stories, voice cues, metaphors to unconscious, non-logical, to seduce you inside.
· waiting for a CRACK IN MIND: waits, for opening of closed door, you will never be the same again, everything is changed, later she says she is like a “safecracker”. A safecracker of the human mind?
· OPEN MIND: Mind Open, CLEAR MIND, totally open, (closed mind is a closed heart)
§ Don’t believe your thoughts, don’t believe what it Thinks,
§ Identity: I am no one, Fragment into a billion pieces, No Identity, Identity destruction,
§ Identity-Fusion: fuse with her, I AM YOU, “I OWN YOU”,
§ Computers: she claims to know nothing about computers, then says to go to her website and delete your Self..Ctrl-Alt-Delete = REBOOT your entire Self
§ SURRENDER: your mind, “feet of the Master”, without opposition, without defense, fearless, undefended state, let it all come without consent, letting go of control, absolute freedom is submission to her. Humility, sublimate Ego, Passivity, have No Plans,
§ No WILL of your own, flow, everything decided for you, preaching passivity,YIELD, no enemies, not opposed to anything,
§ MIND OF THE PEOPLE: mind of THE PEOPLE is HER MIND, your breath is my breath, melded into you, let me in your heart, be flexible, porous,
· THE MASTER: The Master is always a She = Katie, MASTER MOVES IN (to your Mind).
§ She says “others” call her, Saint, Master, Buddha, Enlightened, Magician, SORCERER (she uses that word, that might be the best word of all).
· Installing Dangerous and FALSE ideas in her subjects: false philosophies, dangerous doctrines,
§ Nihilism: NOTHING HAS ANY MEANING, I AM NO ONE, THERE IS NOTHING, nothing anyone says is true. NO ULTIMATE ANSWER TO ANYTHING, nothing to know. NO THOUGHT IS TRUE. Knowledge is insane, nothing to know, know you don’t know, have no beliefs,
§ SOLIPSISM: all reality is mind,
§ Narcissism: “I’m vanity, total vanity”
§ Mania: creating manic impulses and images,
§ No Fight or Flight response,
§ She says The Work is “sanity”. (in fact it’s the opposite).
§ Werner Erhard, EST connection: “there is no reality other than your Stories” same thing. Slips and uses the word “Integrity” similar to Werner Erhard.
· No Good or Bad, No Right or Wrong, No Empathy, No Morality.
§ NO EMPATHY: a rationalization for not having empathy, no suffering, No rules, No sadness,
§ Morality: no right or wrong, no bad people, Morality, no such thing, can’t make children moral,
§ No Sin: there is no sin, a priest confessed his sins to her?
§ If world is destroyed, that is love. Common Good if village wiped out by Tsunami, loss of legs is good, mass death is good,
§ Everything that happens is God’s will, everything is good, everything is benevolent,
§ Stroke: man had one in the desert, she watched without Empathy, and hints that healed him?
· Abuse of TRUST: “trust untrustworthy and trustworthy completely”, obviously very dangerous.
· NO SUFFERING:
§ She is selling Heaven on earth, the secret of life,
§ Exploiting the misery and suffering of the human condition,
§ PAIN: relax into pain, pain is perfection,
· LOVE BOMBING: abuse of Love, liar for Love,
§ Constant use and abuse of the word “LOVE”. Literally applied to everything included mass murder, abuse, death of children, love the child molestor, etc.
§ Literally says embedded, “you can’t not love me, even if you think you don’t”. “Do you Love The Master yet?”
§ LOVE: wants to make you love her and trust her, Worship her,
· Programming: writing/crying doing The Work worsheets for a YEAR,
· Sales-pitches: Website, weekend events, (flip into mind-states)
· VOICE Anchors and cues:
§ Voice is close to a monotone using only a tiny vocal range and always starting on the same note for hours, used to enhance and Trigger Trance states,
§ flattened affect-emotions, hoarse, abrasive
§ Word Cues: Tea, says “insane” all the time,
· Covert HYPNOTIC STORIES: surreal hypnotic images, “Mesmerized”,
§ Tea: drink it, never know its tea, (drinking the Kool-aid metaphor?)
§ ANTS: eating ants on her salad, ants crawling all over her? Ants drawn to POISON in “ant hotel”, and then INFECT OTHERS. (excellent metaphor for the Katie seminar in the hotel). Love Death, murderer, kills ants with her hands and enjoys it? (remember that Carol Skolnick called her clients…Cli-Ants.) More insect metaphors, are her clients like ants to her, spreading and infecting eachother?
§ POISON: smile, poisoning, more poisoning metaphors.
§ WASHING MACHINE Induction: [CD #3, final 3 minutes]
§ there is a long 3 minute “story-induction" about a “washing machine” that was “stuck closed” and running and “would not open”, as the cycles kept running over and over, as Katie was “blind” and could not understand the instructions as they were in a foreign language. After about 5 hours of blind fumbling, Katie turned the dials and CLICK, the laundry cycle was complete, and the laundry was done after a circular repetetive cycle of 5 hours. (the CD set has 5 CD’s…get it?)
· [get the FULL-TEXT of this. and then send to some trained Erickosnian hypnotists for analysis]
§ Amsterdam Story induction QUOTES from Byron Katie: “heaven of heavens a WASHING MACHINE, it can’t get any better than this….eye problems…can’t see clearly, Cannot read the dial on Washing Machine, foreign language, forgotten some essential instructions on how to run the machine…clean clothes, 3 hours still running, “until the correct cycle completes, the door on the washing machine won’t open. So now I’m turning the dial by SOUND, my ear close to it listening to the clicks like a SAFE-CRACKER…door still doesn’t open, load of wet clothes in washing machine…door won’t open, are the wet clothes even clean?” “Notice feeling calm and tickled, always watching Mind and the way of it. There is nothing wrong, everything is right, the thought that the machine should work, or that the clothes should get clean, NEVER EVEN OCCURS TO ME. I’m just watching where reality goes next…Its fascinating… Is the goal to wash the clothes? Is the goal to wash the clothes in this machine? you never know?.. in another hour or two we may be headed for an Adventure at the laundromat up the street?”
§ “then suddenly I remembered that the landlord told me there is a little quirk in the washing machine, you have to turn the dial to a certain place to complete the cycle before the door will open…I turn it, the DOOR OPENS and finally after 5 HOURS..VOILA…THE LAUNDRY IS DONE.” [CD ends right at that moment]
§ The Washing Machine Induction Story, is a metaphor for your Unconscious mind, and what is being done to you in the CD program as you listen. The CD is 5 CD’s, the story is about 5 hours of “laundry”, the symbol for your unconscious Mind is the LOCKED CLOSED washing machine and Katie the SAFE-CRACKER, who turns the dials using SOUND (audio CD), after 5 hours of blind fumbling, and the “laundry is washed”. Mind-washing in 5 hours?
§ Code Words: dirty wet clothes = your current mind(dirty laundry), locked Washing Machine = Unconscious, Dials on the machine are Katie linguistic-image techniques, using SOUND is voice-inductions on CD, etc
§ Laundromat Metaphor: QUOTE: “in another hour or two we may be headed for an Adventure at the laundromat up the street?” The CD ends in a hour or two, and is the Laundromat Adventure, the Adventure of going to The School for 9 days for some Deep Cleaning? Does “The Landromat” = “The School” to wash those minds more deeply? Professional Mind-Washing?
· Female Targets, Soft-Sell, mainly at women
§ Desperate: 100’s of emails from desperate people saying HELP ME.
§ Pre-frame about not answering people’s desperate emails to her for help.
§ Children: lose your children, (died to you), detach from children,
· giving GIFTS grooming:
§ Lose everything gratefully, lose everything, encourages people to be generous, give things away…
§ Possessions: desire, again she says LOSE EVERYTHING,
§ GIFTS: expensive gifting to others, giving your wedding rings, purse, cash to stranger, its all good. (this is a pre-frame to the 9-day School), GIVE, Charity,
· ROBBERY: with gun, (don’t run!)
§ Story of her house robbed by burgulars, ALL POSSESSION stolen. No loss, feels JOY for the robbers. (Images: jewellry, gratitide for theft, pawn shop). Says she filed a police report, serves as a warning not to try to steal HER stuff! She’ll call the cops right away… ;-)
§ False cancer claims, LOVE cancer, constantly using cancer in her stories.
· DEATH-murder images:
§ DEATH-MURDER: holocaust was not bad, death of a child is good! Death of a pet is good, just “eat cake” at a funeral , no grief or sadness for 911 terrorist attacks (but still parses words very carefully),
§ Death is wonderful, dead trees, dead leaves falling from the trees, (metaphor)
§ Personal Death-Bed Visitations? personally visited a man after his death. (are entire Estates being signed over on private death-bed visits?)
· Criticisms Pre-Frame: people talking about “lies”, and she says “I am a liar”, criticism is a gift, from Paul ex-husband,
§ A Criticized Revered Spiritual Teacher now becomes a HE, she blames YOU for projecting your faults onto the Revered Teacher. (if you find fault with her, it’s a fault with you).
§ Some Old Friend has proof of how unkind she was 25 years ago…just an illusion in his mind of course!
§ Daughter publically said what a terrible mother she was at a seminar in the past.
· MARRIAGE-DIVORCE: break up the love for the husband, (free love?), marriage, wants to break up marriages?…give everything?
§ She gives linguistic command about divorce, to laugh at divorce, comments about abused wives,
§ AFFAIRS: she says if her husband had one and IF it were not ok. Are some affairs OK? Grooming?
· Sex: surrendering, without control, no idea what can happen, orgasms that last so long they could kill you, nothing to attach too. Says she’s the perfect lover,
· Receiving MONEY: pretends to be a channel for money, and gives money? Spending money is good,
· Feb 1986 Stories-Myths (research to be done by investigative reporters)
§ Says it was a Rapture, Manic-Joy, manic-laughter,
§ She says she DOES NOT THINK, no thoughts, no Story, no Self, She says she is an “IT”, all Joy.
§ People calling her out of the blue to find Freedom, come and live in her house, (metaphor)
§ Cockroach story, 4 Questions story,
§ Illnesses: Osteoperosis, Face tumor?
§ Blindness Stories: EYES, pain, surgery, disease, surgery, she says one of her followers offered to donate his corneas to her, while he was still alive. (give Katie your actual eyes!).

- All she offers is the 4 Questions to disassemble your Idenity. She wants to mess with your Indentity. DIS-ASSEMBLE EVERYTHING THEY THINK THEY ARE she uses DIS-ASSEMBLE several times.
- have it for breakfast everyday...she talks about being an anti-guru. where have we heard that? Its delfection.
- preaching dependency...
(notice how she seems to say the exact opposite? That is a hypnotic suggestion)
That was CD #1, and rough notes as I listened to it. Its very clear.
1) Rapport: this is the jokes, light conversation, pre-Trance BKI uses, they all do it.
2) Confusion: all of the double-binds, confusion, is meant to occupy the conscious mind, the part of you that might say.."am I being conned?" She overwhelms your Mind with it.
3) Trance: she leads you into Deep Trance using standard techniques, strange stories, etc. Very standard, up and down in Trance to make it deeper, etc.
4) once you get deep enough, she starts with the Suggestions, planting ideas like seeds, her Beliefs start to get planted in your mind.
5) admits she is going to completely Dis-assemble your Identity and your Mind. That is very scary folks, she can do it.
6) get you into The School for The Work LGAT, and do 100 other things to take over your Mind.
So, she is using very sophisticated Waking Hypnosis, influenced strongly by Ericksonian Hypnosis. The goal is to deeply bond with you with a Love-transference, and hypnotize you while awake, and then to LEAD you somewhere. The CD will eventually suggest The School, and other avenues. But the first CD lays the groundwork.
In this type of hypnosis, whatever she says...even the negatives, are meant to create Images of her in your mind, that she is an Enlightened Being, even God herself.
Clearly she is amoral, and does not see there is anything such as Good or Bad. So if someone "robs" you, like she said, that's GOOD. So if she robs you at hypnotic gunpoint, that is GOOD too.
Its funny, about the 100K story, when the person said their family member handed over 100K to Katie. I thought before, if someone pulled a gun and robbed you of 100K, they go to jail.
But if you hypnotise them, and they give it to you, you are still robbing them, but its legal? Funny she should use that metaphor of being robbed at gunpoint and loving it?
This woman is 100% totally sane. Very very smart, and an excellent but abusive hypnotherapist, and noone knows she is even doing it.
All that weird stuff, is just waking hypnotic Induction Stories to get to the unconscious. She has just chosen to do them all the time in public, to create a hypnotic distortion field. Nothing new in anything she is doing.
But she is very good. She is no different that this Wendi woman, but Wendi seems to at least tell you she is doing hypnosis. [www.wendi.com
] Ask Wendi about Byron Katie,and she will laugh out loud.(but watch out for Wendi too! She seems to be more about selling stuff, not being a culty Guru, so far).
Byron Katie is very dangerous, why? Because she is doing it all covertly to vulnerable people, and making herself into some type of Enlightened Being, for her own selfish reasons.
Probably the best way to block it, is to tell everyone that EVERY WORD Byron Katie says in public is part of a covert waking HYPNOSIS. Just let everyone know that...
WARNING: BYRON KATIE IS DOING WAKING HYPNOSIS ON YOU ALL THE TIME.
She keeps it secret, as knowing it, wrecks her process. So tell everyone, shout it from the housetops.
Its waking hypnosis, with every other trick of the LGAT thrown in at The School.
It would not be surprising if sometime in the future an investigator turns up evidence she studied some of the Milton Erickson material, as well of course as all the LGAT stuff, like The Landmark Forum, and the rest of the LGAT's from the 1970's-80's to the present..
Its not surprising that Stever Robbins is her good buddy, he sees what she is doing, and they both have the same Ethics. (zero). To go out and do this heavy stuff to soccer moms, and trusting people, WITHOUT THEIR KNOWLEDGE, it really is wrong. Its not only wrong, its sick. Its leading people into her dark world, for her own reasons.
Its simply a flagrant abuse of this type of hypnosis and persuasion, as its all hidden.
Stay far far away from this woman. Don't "believe" a single word she says...its all Trance Induction waking hypnosis, and embedded suggestions, meant to draw you under her spell...
