Below are some real reviews of this book, from people who happen to be bird lovers who bought the book. The thing the average person doesn't understand, is that Ching Hai is not "crazy". Doing weird things like putting birds in fur coats, and having them talk gibberish, is believe it or, a technique that can be used. Its actually a very sophisticated subject, and clearly Ms Chi

Its very interesting, the analysis of Dave Lakhani. His name came up in the context of other sleazy covert persuaders like Alex Benzer (Ali Binazir) and James Arthur Ray, and Michael Beckwith from The Secret. Dave Lakhani was basically chosen at random to analyze. He tries to make you believe he is teaching people about cults, covert persuasion, and how to protect themselves from getting exp

The keywords used on that website www.disguisedhypnosis.com/affiliate.html give a picture of the sadistic and even psychopathic mentality of their target market. Take a moment to read through some of the phrases and keywords, for some insight into the sick and dangerous mentality of those who actively seek out this material, and who their targets will be. www.disguisedhypnosis.com/affiliate

There is too much to follow up all together... Just to follow up about the alleged NLP here. This is not going away. to quote Richard Bandler...the NLP claims being made are going to be researched RIGHT DOWN ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTOM. You see, one has to cut right down to the roots of a problem...so to speak. The comments made by Dave Lakhani about "NLP" are actually highly dec

There is a interesting post by someone with the username "Antara" on the Janaki blog, who claims there were there the day after the alleged cockroach hypnotized Byron Katie. Absolutely fascinating. Antara says that over a period of 2 years, that Byron Katie found the "language" for what happened, by doing all of the self-helpy seminars, 12 steps, and other material that

Yes, that was modeling the NLP manipulative persuasion patterns copied from the written text of Alex Benzer. Of course we all agree that evidence is required. Michael Beckwith gives zero evidence for any of his extreme claims, like healing disease with his techniques. Its up to Beckwith and Benzer to provide the evidence, as they are the ones who are making the claims and the money. Those wh

In this thread, so far, no one is talking about "cults" per se, they are talking about the scam of New Thought, and the scam of The Secret, and these New Religious Movements which is what Michael Beckwith is selling. Beckwith is promoting a very extreme form of New Thought that is very dangerous and damaging. Michael Beckwith appeared on Oprah and The Secret with James Arthur Ray.

here are some hypnosis scripts, related to Stever Robbins, anyone can find in seconds. So you see how these guys do it, all of these weasel words to play with your perceptions of reality. This is amateur hypnosis? What a joke, maybe he really is into comedy, or perhaps FARCE? These are some of the most advanced hypnotic techniques that can be used, and this is from 15 years ago.

Quotesolea13Byron Katie quoted by helpme - "A week or so later, as I lay on the floor of my attic room (I felt too unworthy to sleep in a bed)" Really? Byron Katie was so clinically depressed that she felt unworthy to sleep in a bed? And that long-seated, deeply felt emotion of self-disgust completely changed in an instant as soon as the cockroach crawled over her foot? Now she fe

Jay... I think a more detailed critical analysis of Erickson, would be better in another thread? I don't want to go off-topic of Byron Katie. After all, BK at most does only a tiny part of methods taken from that area, and warps and perverts them. I think just focussing on the BK part is more appropriate for the thread. It seems BK took some elements that sprung from him, 2nd or 3rd g

One thing to keep in mind about this Ericksonian hypnotherapy stuff, is that a "story" about hypnotherapy, even coming from Erickson, is a "Teaching Tale", not a fact. So there may have been a golfer, there may not even have been a golfer. Sometimes a story like that is used as an indirect trance induction story... as in telling a client that golfer story, and the real mes

PROLONGED EYE-GAZING TECHNIQUE another very self-conscious technique that Byron Katie uses, is the prolonged Eye-Gazing technique. There are many examples of her using that technique, seen in the conversion story by Carol Skolnick, blogs about the Byron Katie Eyes by the disgraced Neale Donald Walsch, advertising blogs by Stephen Mitchell and the initial induction by Byron Katie described i

No wonder they suppressed the book, A Cry In The Desert. It tells a different Story. For example, on page 26 of the book, the writer states that Byron Katie learned meditation from the therapists at the halfway house. That is a new one. Which therapists taught Byron Katie how to meditate? The book mentions that her husband Paul and daughter Roxann were there, so maybe they will know? But

· 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 o

not too be too too anal ...but its always important to END these types of metaphorical self-trance images, to bring them to a conclusion...so they don't stay somewhat "frozen" in the mind. Its really just Active Imagination...which is a type of self-hypnosis...each person is very unique...and sometimes a person can do the images repeatedly...and modify them. (if any powerful emot
