The “Rapid Centering Technique” Transcript:

 

Start with a feeling in the body. Well, actually, you start with a scenario. So, let's say someone feels anxious in a social situation. So they say, "Great, think about that social situation and step back into it and see what you see, hear what you hear and feel that you feel when you're back there now. So, what feeling do you feel?" And they'll say, "Oh, anxiety." Or whatever the feeling is. "And where do you feel that feeling in your body?" And you shut up and you let them answer and they say, you know, "In my chest and throat." "Okay, great. And how big is it? How far does it extend in the chest and throat? Is it, you know, like a narrow tube or does it take up your whole chest?" And they tell you and then you say, "And what color is it?" You know, from up until then you've been asking sort of things that seem like they're kinesthetic. But actually, when you look back, all those things could have been visual as well. The location, the size, the shape and so on. The color, the color is absolutely visual. So, some people would be like, "Huh, what do you mean color?" "If it had a color, what would it be?" That sort of classic question. And they tell you.

 

Then you do a very simple visualization. "Imagine in front of you is a full-length mirror. You can see yourself in that mirror, you can see your hair, color of hair, your face, you can see your shirt, the color of your shirt and if you look down towards your belly button, below your belly button about two inches, and inside your body, at the very center of your body, you can see a tiny little dot like the size of a grain of sand, no bigger than a grain of sand in fact. And you can also see that let's say red, circular shape in your chest over there in the mirror representing the anxiety. Now, in a moment on the count of three, what I want you to do is imagine in and see in the mirror that red, circular shape shrinking and getting smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller until it fits inside that tiny little dot in the center of your body over there as if there's a powerful magnet or a black hole sucking it up. On the count of three, one, two, and three. See it happening in the mirror now. All of that energy shrinking down smaller and smaller and smaller and smaller until it's sucked into that tiny little dot in the center of your being and is absorbed within it now."

 

And then you wait to see their face to see if they're processing or if it's happened, and you say, "Great, now that it's all in your belly because it's in your belly, you can digest fully all that energy, eliminating any of it that you no longer need. Sending it back and fully digesting the rest, just like you digest carbohydrates into glucose, digest fats into lipids. You break down proteins into amino acids. You can break down that energy into pure energy and allow it to circulate throughout your body wherever it's needed. Trusting the wisdom of your unconscious mind to do that in the right time, in the right place."

He teaches hypnosis through Gary Turner Performance with popular courses such as The Therapy Protocol and Resolving Anger.
