You can use the Logosynthesis sentences as another way of resetting your automatic pilot. The “you” that does the job is not the same you as the “you” who is reading this book and trying to manage your stress and anxiety. It is your essential inner “true Self.” Some people think of it as the “you” that is connected to all that is. I won’t attempt to define this any further. Just know that in the sentences that follow “I” means that part of you.
These sentences have been developed and revised since Dr. Willem Lammers discovered the basic principles of Logosynthesis in 2005.
Dr. Lammers is a therapist and coach who is highly trained in many different modalities. Once, while consulting on a difficult case, he observed that the client was referring to a part of herself as if it actually existed in the space next to her. When he invited the client to rejoin with this form in space, everything changed very suddenly.
You can read details of this story in his book, Self Coaching with Logosynthesis: How the Power of Words Can Change Your Life, for far more information than I am including here. If this process appeals to you, I highly recommend that you get it and study it in detail. For now, use this quick guide to get started.
These are the specific English words that are currently used by Logosynthesis practitioners. Other versions in several different languages can be found on the internet at www.Logosynthesis.net.
1. I retrieve all my energy bound up in (this—whatever your trigger is) and take it back to the right place in my Self.
2. I remove all the non-me energy related to (this—whatever your trigger is) from all of my cells, from my body and from my personal space and send it to where it truly belongs.
3. I retrieve all my energy bound up in all my reactions to (this—whatever your trigger is) and take it back to the right place in my Self.
You can see that without a trigger, the sentences are not useful. You will find much more detail about triggers further on in this book. This is a simple description of how the sentences are used.
If you are working with a helper (professional or study-partner) your partner will read you the sentences in short chunks and you will repeat each chunk aloud. If you are working alone you may read the sentences or say them from memory.
You speak these words aloud and after each sentence you sit, pause for at least 15 seconds, breathe quietly, and notice what is happening in your body-mind system. You may feel muscles that want to tense or move, see pictures of events and people from your past, hear sounds or conversation and feel many different emotions and/or physical sensations. Or you may feel nothing at all.
All of these responses are completely normal. Simply notice what they are and let them pass naturally. When you feel complete with one sentence, move on to the next one. Repeat the process of saying the sentence, pausing, breathing and noticing what occurs.
When you have completed all three sentences notice how your feelings and perceptions of your trigger have changed. Doing this process with your first trigger may help you discover that another trigger would work more effectively to help you recover your energy from whatever is causing you distress. If so, repeat the process using the new trigger.
