LDS/ Mormon Energy Work—My Experiences as Patient/ Healee and Critique/ Criticism of the Energy Healing Modality: Reference Point Therapy (RPT)
Here I will share some of my experiences with Reference Point Therapy (RPT), my personal critique/ criticism. I watched the videos, the healing demonstrations, the blog material, the theories and the work that this method was based on, and a few testimonials.
I was told I “got completed” all of levels 1 and 2 (there is one more level, much more intensive and expensive, with the promises being more flowery and wonderful). I got pretty much what I paid for regarding the healer’s time, but almost nothing in what was promised (more later).
(I stopped for a while due to a communication problem that resulted unfairly in a further payment, but I figured I would be putting the relationship at risk if I brought it up or didn’t pay, and as I had a package deal with a few more sessions left, I figured that would make me lose out on the rest of the sessions, or at least their effectiveness. Plus, and this was the big thing—I kept thinking (and hoping) that maybe the most progress/ massive healing would be seen in the last session(s), like putting the final pieces in place for complete healing. Experiencing it to completion has also allowed me to critique it without jumping to conclusions or being accused of not having experience it all.)
It was an interesting experience, and felt good, little by little, as it was being done.
However… as of now, months later (definitely enough time to notice changes), I can only see two small changes (emotional ones) in my life from it all.
SUMMARY: I spent over $1,000 and maybe 9 hours for this, and came out almost nothing.
Quantum Touch has helped with a few physical problems (head alignment, etc.).
Using SuperEFT(TM) I’ve helped people get over bipolar disorder in four hours, and with normal EFT, major emotional life issues, often in less than an hour (desire to marry from 0 to 10, phobia of water/ drowning, phobia of heights, phobia of underground/ tunnels, long-time anger from 10 to 0, etc.); some chronic pain in less than two minutes.
As a patient/ healee with Yuen Method, I’ve gotten over some chronic major health problems in mere minutes, sometimes less (so nice!).
All in all, based on my experiences, and based on the availability and performance of other energy healing modalities/ choices, I don’t recommend Reference Point Therapy (RPT) to anyone for emotional or physical healing.
So, what did I learn from my experience, and what personal suggestions/ pointers would I make to myself the next time around for energy work, of any mode, and with each healer:
1. Be clear about what you’re getting, for how much, when, etc.
Muscle testing only? Or muscle testing AND corrections along with it? Kinesiology corrections, pendulum corrections, energy work corrections (reiki, QT, EFT, QE, ME, YM, etc.)? Finding out your problems, or general healing for the body to use as it sees fit? Clearing your chakras? What does the “package” entail? What are other options (from other healers and from the same person), and how do they compare with each other/ to the package?
2. Be clear about how to measure progress.
Especially remember to use the 0-10 rating system to get logical, straightforward analysis–after each session (if you have multiple sessions, don’t wait till the very end to do this!). If you’re always working on things that “can’t be measured”, and things that measure really low, you’re not going to see the power of the healing. If someone says it’s going to take a while to see results, or that changes are “deep but subtle, over time”, personally, I would STOP and try another—because there are others that do give great results upfront.
3. Start out with your direst problems close to the top.
That way, you’ll know much more clearly if the healing can help you/ is working.
4. Go slow.
No matter how good it sounds, start out at the bottom (often with a free session). Then, I would start out with ONE paid session (even if muscle testing or the pendulum say you will need more)—don’t even schedule a second one yet. (If you do, you usually need to pay if you miss, and it’s easier just to not schedule it in the first place.) If you can’t feel any *permanent* change from that session, STOP and try another healing method/ modality, or at least another practitioner. Some healers might allow you to put money from one paid session towards a package, if you ask first.
I signed up for the whole shebang (or so I thought) and spent about $900, and have seen almost nothing from it (try explaining that to the wife (and yourself)!). I could feel the “subtle” changes at the time, and they were great, but it seems nothing lasted/ held. The practitioner was skilled, seemed to care, etc., and Reference Point Therapy has some great ideas behind it, and maybe it works for others, but for me something is obviously missing or defunct from this healing method/ modality/ experience.
5. Ask very clearly, even when it should be able to be assumed.
I felt cheated out of $125 this way—the practitioner wasn’t clear about an extra-pay session being extra-pay—she wasn’t clear about it at the beginning, I didn’t understand what she was getting at when I felt she rushed into the session, then she talked about payment only after the session (I went back and checked my recording to be double-sure). The practitioner also promised a few things that weren’t followed up on. Don’t feel bad about “feeling stingy”—better to be clear with each other than to have one or both sides feel mad and let down later.
6. Testimonials do count for something, but not for everything.
Listen to what people say. Closely. And to what they don’t say. Closely. Look for *concrete, measurable* changes, from multiple people, in diverse problems/ issues.
7. Record EVERYTHING.
Copy/ save their website to your hard drive; keep every email (yours and theirs); each call/ session/ visit (from the start to the finish, not just of the session, but the entire interaction); etc. This is good for everyone; there are times it has helped both sides (with promises, clarity, etc.). I got most everything but one critical part of one call; it would have been much easier if only… I find it amazing how much can change from the first session to the last… If you have records, don’t be afraid to remind the healer about their promises. If the healer is not keeping promises that you have on record/ things aren’t working out, you can usually easily negotiate out. I can publicly post this experience because I DID keep records for most everything. Some USA states have laws about recording, such as disclosure. I find it best to just ask if it’s ok before promising/ scheduling, and if they say no, to choose someone else.
Good luck with healing!
P.S. Here is what was promised:
–rapidly accelerate your spiritual growth.
–heal powerfully, rapidly and at the deepest level.
–clear patterns of feeling less than, not good enough, like a failure, unsafe, always a victim, never having enough.
–connect more fully with your soul’s purpose here.
–clear disconnection, abundance problems.
–more peace, quiet mind, happiness, contentment, etc.
–achieve higher states of awareness, connection and intuition.
–easily access your own powers of creativity, ability to manifest abundance and romance and to fully feel the enjoyment of life
–connect more fully with your soul’s purpose here.
Had any of those happened, especially the first one, I would be happy. Live and learn, eh?
