Instructions. Follow them if you want a good session!
Troubleshooting Session Only, not for normal use at all
You should have had some success using Rub & Yawn!
PaulsRobot works far, far better when you use Rub & Yawn extensively while following the (Reach & Withdraw, 6-Direction and Rogerian) session directions.
Be "sessionable" (enough food/sleep, not under the influence etc.) for each session
It is best to prepare for the session, not so much mentally but physically. This means:
• Having had enough rest and sleep so that you are not physically tired at the time of the session
• Having had enough nutritious food so that you are well-fed
• Not being under the influence of drugs or alcohol
• Having enough time for the session
• Being in an environment relatively free from distractions, i.e. no kids or pets running around, no sudden loud noises, mobile phone and radio turned off, no people looking over your shoulder etc
• Being willing to read and follow the instructions given.
These requirements are important. They are not absolute, but the session will tend to go better to the extent that each one is taken care of.
Visualizing your topic
What you will be addressing in a PaulsRobot session is called your "topic." It might be a sour relationship you are in; an abusive childhood that you can't get out of your head for long; the loss of a loved one; feeling bad over some failure in life; whatever. You may have decided on your topic before the session starts, or you may simply want to take the option of determining the topic that should be run now right after the session has started. The visualizing procedure will help you to discharge the harmful energy built up over time concerning your topic, and replace the harmful energy in your system with good clean energy.
Rub & Yawn
The discharges will be visible as yawns, or sighs, or other obvious physical actions. The "Rub" part of Rub & Yawn — you vigorously rub your hands together, rub your chest, your back, your arms and legs, take your shoes off and rub your feet on the carpet, s-t-r-e-t-c-h, push down on the table, squeeze your chair etc. — seems to stimulate the body into drawing in the fresh energy it needs from the environment.
While doing the rubbing and visualizing of your topic as directed by whichever screen you are looking at there are basically three things that can happen (see below). You will click on whichever link is appropriate, and this will determine the next screen you will see and direction you will receive.
Three possible reactions
Assuming that Rub & Yawn actually works with you . . . once you have put your attention fully on a topic, have chewed it around a bit to make it real to yourself with examples of how it could apply in your own life, and have done a bit of vigorous rubbing with your attention still on it, there are basically three and only three things that can happen:
1. Nothing worth mentioning
2. You start to shut down
3. Discharges start to come off
(continued . . .)
( . . . continuation)
Nothing worth mentioning
This means the topic is either uncharged, undercharged or inaccessible right now. Just dump it and go on to something else.
You start to shut down
Whoa! This means your topic is overcharged and needs URGENT action or you could easily just fall asleep on the spot. It won't kill you (don't do this while driving!) but it wastes your time. Hit the shutting down link and follow the instructions immediately.
Discharges start to come off
This means your topic is just right, neither undercharged nor overcharged. Rub & Yawn away and have a great session!
End point for a PaulsRobot session
The end point for a PaulsRobot session is covered on this page.
If you feel yourself shutting down (suddenly feeling like going to sleep), recognize it as such. Hit the red "Shutting down" link, STAND UP! and then rub stuff firmly and yawn for as long as needed to get rid of the shutting down.
Use the Robot directions
These sessions go much better if you follow the instructions and allow the Robot to give the directions and run the session. If you stop clicking the links and try to do it all in your head instead it really doesn't work so well.
