Part 1 of 3 - Preface

Client (or yourself), complains of being depressed, anxiety, and/or suicidal thoughts.

Ask this question of client, or yourself, “How long have you (I), been depressed, anxious, and/or suicidal?” (Pin point when depression, anxiety, and/or suicidal thoughts started; Days, weeks, or years).

Then ask, “What occurred at the time this depression, anxiety and/or suicidal thoughts started?” (There is always an event that was at the onset of depression, anxiety, and/or suicidal thoughts which will be outside of the client’s usual scope of experiences: Rape, incest, murder, death, domestic violence, assault, etc.).

If the client cannot remember, or will not look at what had taken place when the depression anxiety, and/or suicidal thoughts first occurred, than this is a matter for a mental health professional.

Event – (It is not necessary to have the client tell you the details of a traumatic experience! It is only important that the client (or you) knows what the event was that started the depression, anxiety, and/or suicidal thoughts, and that they are willing to look at it themselves for this procedure.)

Part 3 of 3 - 4 Phase

Albert Einstein said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge!" 

Knowledge is limited to what we know and the Imagination is unlimited!

Do it yourself...

This is 4 Phase – The targeted event has three components (sensory memories: sight, sound, taste, smell, feel), the emotions attached to it the experience and the intensity level.  While using the imagination (fantasy), change the facts in the events in the targeted experience, one at a time. This will release the bonding (intensity), between facts and the attached emotions to the experience.  

Again, client and/or self, close eyes, and see the event take place in the mind’s eye four times, from start to finish. With each concurrent viewing change one fact about the event using the imagination.


Feel: If it was sunny and hot, make it raining and cold.
See: If there were other people present change their facial features: man to woman, or you could change the head on someone to look like Bugs Bunny’s.
Sound: Change the sounds of the voices from high pitch to low, or fast to slow, or in reverse.
Taste: Eating at the time? Change the food to something you like to eat.
Smell: Not a pleasant smell at the time? Imagine a pleasant smell.

Use your imagination to create your own scenarios, have fun, and play with this procedure. 

  • The condensed version of 4 Phase: Change 4 facts about any event, using your imagination, that is causing intense emotional suffering, concurrently, either by what you saw, smelled, tasted, or heard.
It is only necessary to change 4 aspects of the event you're working on for the desired effect, removing the cause of depression, anxiety, and/or suicidal thoughts.

Remember that depression is not a disease! Depression, anxiety, and/or suicidal thoughts are a result, symptom of having experienced an emotionally compromising event.

Why do people commit suicide?

Why do People Commit Suicide?
In the field of psychology there is currently a massive gap between what is being taught, applied and propagated, and the new solutions available for mental disorders.

In order to see the answers you seek, you must first ask the right questions!
Why is not as important as HOW!
Built into the making of each and every human on the planet is an innate characteristic called the survival instinct, which has only one purpose, protect life! Or, keep you safe at all costs.
The survival instinct has three hierarchical threat levels it has been programmed to be aware of; 1) the Soul, 2) the Body, and 3) the Mind. With the highest level of threat being, when the SOUL is in danger.

There is only one way anyone can consciously make the decision to commit suicide! The survival instinct has to be activated to protect the soul from a perceived threat by one, or both of the other two components; the Mind and/or Body.

In order for the MIND to become a threat a d…
