Mind Hacking Questioning
By Atom Bergstrom
Re: I’m really confused about what questions I should ask and in what order and where to even start and how am I supposed to know which illness is connected to which trauma and which person.
How many questions are there in the universe? More than there are stars in the sky.
Casual conversation is usually easier on a client and also on the Mind Hacker.
But some therapists like to “skip the salad and get to the meat.” They don’t want to pull their punches.
Did you ever play the parlor game, Twenty Questions?
Here are some sample questions for a father trauma …
“What’s the worst thing your father ever did to you?”
“What’s the best thing your father ever did for you?”
“Is your father alcoholic? Does he use drugs?”
“How religious is your father? Does he belong to a church or temple?”
“Did your father ever beat you?”
“Did your father ever beat your mother? Sister? Brother?”
“Did your mother ever cheat on your father?”
“Did your father ever cheat on your mother?”
“Are your parents divorced?”
“What about revenge? What’s the worst thing you’d ever do to your father?”
“What would it take to forgive your father?”
“If you can’t forgive your father, can you forgive yourself for not forgiving him?”
“What’s your earliest childhood memory of your father?”
“Did your father play sports with you?”
Most people have ambivalent feelings about their parents.
One of my clients loved her father but couldn’t forgive him for a fatal hit-and-run accident.
Another client was afraid to argue with his father because of his father’s weak heart — a double-bind trauma, justice versus conscience.
Trivial circumstances can cause Cognitive Trigger Events and physical illnesses too.
I had a client who couldn’t forgive his father for not giving him a wristwatch for his graduation.
Once you get a reaction from one leg or the other, you’ll never forget it.
You’ll say — as I did when I first experienced a client’s involuntary motor movement— “Can it really be this easy?”
It was an EPIPHANY.
My sessions were never the same. It was an instant upgrade.
It’s easier to work on a severely traumatized person.
One of my friends was like bamboo bending in the wind. It took me at least 20 minutes till I found any trauma.
Then her mother died, and traumas showed up in less than five minutes.
