67 67 3. Prepare Clients for Potential Blocks Sometimes while connecting to Resources, concerns or fears about the processing will arise. Unconscious fears may be expressed by the sudden arrival of a body disturbance such as unpleasant sensations, dissociation, distracting thoughts, numbness, or sleepiness. That may or may not happen to you, but if it does, please tell me about it, even if it doesn’t seem important. You’re welcome to have concerns or fears – just let me know if they come up. I’ll want to address them right away. Client Preparation

68 68 3. Prepare Clients for Authentic Processing Be sure to tell me about whatever comes up, even if you think its wrong – even if you’re confused. It might not make sense to you, but it might make sense to me. If it doesn’t – together we’ll figure it out. We will not successfully complete this protocol if we do this over unexpressed fears or concerns, or if you don’t authentically disclose what’s coming up. Client Preparation

73 73 NAS & PAS Meditations Resource Mobilization Focus on competent caregiving experience Then read meditation once – without ABS

74 74 Resource Mobilization Think about _________ as I name each skill on the list. Nod or say “yes” with each skill you know you have. Stop me if I name a skill you believe you don’t have, or if you feel any discomfort that suggests a block is arising. Close your eyes (if that’s comfortable) and take a deep breath. Now get in touch with the following skills and traits, which you already have, including your ability to be empathic… compassionate… understanding… accepting… patient… Nurturing Adult Self Meditation

Now get in touch with the center of your being… that place within you that’s quiet… peaceful… and still. And in this place… it’s possible you’ll connect to your Spiritual Core. Your Spiritual Core has been with you from the beginning… it’s the essence of who you are… your core of goodness. Pure… resilient… and whole. And your body knows exactly how to connect you.

83 83 The Breath Meditation Resource Mobilization There is a place inside you that’s quiet, peaceful, and still. It's always been there and you can get there by simply watching your breath. First, deliberately inhale. Notice it takes muscle tension to do this. You have to do a little work to get the air into your lungs. As you release the air notice that all you have to do is let go. Just let yourself float down, while the air leaves your body. Notice how good it feels to just let go. Take another breath, and again notice that muscle tension is needed. Then let go, and just float down.

84 84 The Breath Meditation Resource Mobilization Notice that right at the bottom of your breath, right at the point where you stop exhaling, there is a moment where nothing is happening. Where all is quiet, peaceful, and still. As you breathe again, watch for that point. When you find it, just rest for a moment or two, quiet and still, not breathing. Notice what that feels like, what your mind is like - empty and calm. Now as you breathe, notice you can stay connected to this calm and quiet place within you. When you’re ready, tell me what you notice.

85 85 The List Meditation Resource Mobilization Think about your ________ experience. Close your eyes (if that’s comfortable) and take a deep breath. Now get in touch with the center of your being… that place within you that is quiet… peaceful… and still. And in this place… it’s possible you’ll connect to a sense of interconnectedness to all beings… a sense of completeness and wholeness… of safety and invulnerability.

86 86 The List Meditation Resource Mobilization A place where all things and events are equally special… a place of no desires or aversions… no ego or struggles. A place of unconditional effortless happiness, acceptance. A place of loving kindness and compassion. Notice as you connect to this part of you, and when you’re ready, tell me what you notice.

87 87 Spiritual Core Self Meditation Resource Mobilization If it feels good, apply ABS Ask about a mental picture SCS should appear as luminous energy
