Sometimes you are extremely upset and may have hundreds of addictions triggering
simultaneously. The EIP (Exploration Insight Process) is a way to sort it all out so you can work on each
addiction individually. The clarity you gain also helps you feel not so overwhelmed, even
if you can’t manage to reprogram anything.
You can do this orally, with a partner or on paper.
- Describe the incident in a Dragnet Sergeant Joe Friday manner, completely without
any emotion or judgement, just the facts — no motives. Get it down to one
sentence, e. g. A male stranger held a baseball bat over his left shoulder and
shouted I am going to kill you. When you are done, a
stranger reading your sentence usually would have trouble guessing exactly what emotion
you were feeling and why, e. g.
If you find yourself rambling, answer these questions as tersely as possible.
- Jimmy hung up the phone.
- G. closed the bedroom door.
- R. opened a bag of chocolate chip cookies.
- Mom gave me a bag of liquorice all-sorts.
- The man at Rockwell said Fuck you, we are going to use it
- Who is involved?
- Where is it happening?
- What is happening?
- What is being said?
- Describe the physical sensations in the various parts of your body and the
emotions you are feeling. Don’t describe why you feel this way, or what is
happening to make you feel that way, just list the sensations and emotions (See the emotions list of emotions) e.g. a prickling sensation
in the back of my neck. Stomach muscles tense. Fear.
- What Am I telling myself? Just write down everything running through your mind
without censorship. Don’t be afraid to complain, whine, look ridiculous or
exaggerate. There are no rules here; you can run on for pages and pages. Don’t
try to be conscious. Just tell it like it is. To keep this flow going, ask yourself
- How do I want things to be?
- What is bothering me the most?
- What are my models of how things should or should not be?
- If things go the way I want, what does it mean about me?
- If things don’t go the way I want, what does it mean about me?
- What are other people going to think?
- Spend maybe twenty minutes collecting these thoughts, though for a major addictive
snarl you might dedicate a few hours.
- Now go through the material in the previous step and look for addictive demands,
and formulate them in canonical form e.g. I create the experience of fear because
my programming addictively demands that the stranger not hit me with the baseball
- Then go through that material looking for your positive intentions and formulate them in
canonical form, e.g. My intention is to feel safe.
- Now use any of the Living Love methods on the addictions that you found. For
example you might choose to use Pathways 2 and 4 and Centres of Consciousness, on one
addiction, the ICD (Instant Consciousness Doubler) on another and link the suffering on a third and
schedule some EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitisation and Reprocessing) work for a
nasty traumatic fourth.
