Processing: Basic Concepts
above picture for 6 mins video
|In a troubled relationship there are some hidden
factors that make the situation worse. We tend to slip into roles and respond irrationally. One could of course look at each upset or conflict to sort it out. In
DEEP processing we are, however, looking for one of the root causes. In the
illustration we see what happens in the woman's mind. She has a 'package of
images, energy-masses and ideas about angry men and one of self responding. Each package is called an
Identity (ID). In certain types of conflicts, these two reactive
identities are at work. The woman will project her
negative 'blue angry man identity' onto the person in
front of her. He appears 'all blue'. She will react to
this 'blue man' according to her own 'red angry woman
identity'. Using DEEP Processing the woman can
have her own mind cleared of the two irrational and
clashing identities. Once that is done, the
actual relationship will change dramatically as well.
In DEEP processing we find these identities as energy-masses
(mental ridges) in the mind. We process each of them separately. The
first step is to find the troublesome Identity in opposition (the
counter-pole or ID2). The woman can be asked to think of a specific
conflict with the man. She is asked questions in order to locate the
apparent energy-mass that represents the man in the conflict. She is
asked to describe or draw its shape and impact on the body as it
appears to her. She finds a few characteristics to describe how that
role feels. The energy-mass can be perceived to be anywhere; inside
or outside the body; near or far away; around the head or elsewhere.
Once the basic characteristics of this mental energy-mass is established,
one can find the decisions, emotions, energies and polarities that
role operates on.
The name DEEP derives from that as it stands for: Decisions, Emotions, Energies and
Polarities, and these are the elements the practitioner can isolate
and discharge in these identities, resulting in the IDs lose their power to
irrationally control the client or to interfere in the relationship.
Finding and discharging the "blue man"
counter-pole is thus the first step. Once that is done, the woman can be that role
without losing her temper
or leave it alone at will.
Next, we find the energy-mass that represents herself
in the conflict (Own ID, ID1). An Identity contains a whole package of
experiences and incidents going way back in time. All this has been organized
into an Identity to make it quickly and easily available. It became an identity,
as the woman adopted a whole set of emotions, responses and fixed ideas to use in similar
situations. It has to some degree taken on a life of its own. This can be very
subtle — yet it can be found in the best of us
without fail. One reason the two identities persist, is that they hang up
against each other in an unresolved conflict or games-condition. They are both "right"
and are blind when it comes to seeing the situation from the other
point of view.
There is a series of steps in DEEP processing, all
designed to dissolve the two identities as energy-masses.
Once the steps are successfully done, the woman can suddenly
see her counter-pole for what he really is. She can now
communicate directly with the person. She has no need to use
or project the blue energy-mass onto the man. It acted as
prejudice and mental name calling. As a rule the
counter-pole is a dehumanized, demonized
or grossly distorted version of the actual person.
Likewise, she can be herself without slipping into
the red side of the problem. She can therefore
take the lead in resolving
between them in a rational manner.
By using the various DEEP processing techniques,
all kinds of new and old conflicts are being addressed. Also
turbulent periods of a person's life can be addressed as the confusion contained
therein, consisted of viewpoints in conflict.
The Super Problems Process
One technique within DEEP processing is called the Super Problems Process.
Here we take up a subject the client is passionate about. We find all the goals and
identities in conflict or opposition to each other within that certain area, be
it "marriage," "study," "religion," "collecting stamps," "football," "health,"
"enforcing the law," etc. We can address any subject the client is
passionate about, one after the other. Processing the area has a powerful
— just like it
happens in an Italian opera if the plot comes to a happy ending: All the efforts
and characters come together in the grand finale having learned to live and work
together. They can sing the same tune with one powerful voice!
As a result of the various DEEP processing techniques, unwanted conditions, physical and
emotional, are routinely alleviated. Often forgotten or innocent looking conflicts from childhood
are found and reveal heavy disturbances in the energy field. Processing them,
using DEEP processing, can turn the key and unlock troubled relationships
and unwanted conditions. New circumstances in life may reveal dormant energy-masses that can be addressed right away. At some point, all available energy-masses
have been resolved using a number of DEEP techniques. The woman will have reached a state of clarity
of mind, of having thoroughly cleansed her energy field. She will
have grown as a spiritual Being as a result. She will be much more
able to enjoy life. She can meet any adversity with an open mind and
a resolve that makes it seem like a game she is willing to play.
Note: in this day and age of
equal opportunity and equality among the sexes, the above example may seem
inappropriate to some. We assure you, we are not taking a stand for inequality.
We have used the example because it seems effective in getting the basic concept
across. This is because we all have known men and women who are operating in
these traditional roles of the sexes. Please note: this type of processing is
actually intended as an effective way to overcome any type of "traditional
