Have you ever heard of PSTEC?
It stands for Percussive Suggestion Technique. It was invented by a very clever guy named Tim Phizackerley but you don’t need to know this, you just need to know what it is and the fact that it works.
It is a self help tool for people suffering from anxiety, stress, PTSD, depression etc etc. It’s fast and effective.
I’m not on any kind of commission for saying this, Tim has never even heard of me but when I was at my lowest point he came to my rescue.
It is a downloadable audio track that you play through your headphones while tapping your hands on your knees in a certain order. There is a free download version available from his website pstec where you can also watch videos on how to do it (that I highly recommend you take the time to follow) It explains how to do the tapping and when and also how to prepare yourself for the session which lasts for about 9 minutes or so, if that.
Sounds weird?
It is, there’s no denying it.
And how can something so short have such a huge impact on conditions that took years to develop or that are so crippling that you can barely function?
I don’t know, I honestly can’t say but what I can say from personal experience is… it works!
So here’s my challenge to you, try it.
If you find it doesn’t work for you, what have you got to lose, apart from 9 minutes and your pain?
And what have you got to gain, apart from peace and relief?
This was the technique that started me back on my path to releasing my anxiety, panic attacks and depression. I’ve gone on since to try other things but, I tell you, as a speedy solution there’s nothing like it and I used it for months.
I had seen a link for it on a facebook group I belonged to but I hadn’t tried it. Then one day I was subjected to the most vicious personal physical and psychological attack I’d ever had from a close family member (Good old Mater Famillias).
I was already vulnerable from being severely depressed, a situation this person was fully aware of and took it as the perfect opportunity to grind me down even further, laughing at me as she did so. (It’s a narc thing)
I was in shock. I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t speak and I certainly couldn’t retaliate or defend myself. I was powerless and ashamed. I took myself from the room, stumbling and shaking with fear and cried my eyes out.
I must have been functioning on some level though as it popped into my head and I decided to give it a go there and then. I downloaded it and watched the video and did it.
I scored my pain that first time round as a 10 (In my head it was actually a 50-60 on my “life sucking painometer”)
When I’d finished that first round I reassessed my feelings and realised I was down to a 6. Did another round and another until I could honestly say I could no longer get in touch with that feeling. It was gone. I don’t know where it went and I didn’t care, I had found a tool that worked!
I was overjoyed and spent the next few weeks and months using it on all aspects of my depression, stuff from the past, stuff that hadn’t even happened yet but I was so afraid it would, conversations and confrontations that had left me quivering; anything and everything.
I gradually became stronger and more resilient, happier and more settled, hopeful for the future even.
For me it wasn’t the end game. It got rid of a certain amount of the pain but I still had many questions unanswered. However, it’s a valuable part of my toolbox, one I’m not going to give up any time soon and, let’s just say it’s a valuable rung of the ladder I used to climb out of the pit of despair.
If you feel any area of your life could do with improvement; you don’t have to be as low as I was, just go to the website and have a look. I grant you it’s an odd looking website as far as self-help sites go but overlook that and take a look at the info on there and make your own mind up as to whether you fancy breaking free of your pain and discomfort or not.
(It’s a fact that some people are actually addicted to their pain. Go figure)
