Default Re: Basic protocol

We evoke the picture, cognition, emotion and body sensation and say, "just notice it." Some people say, "focus on that." I DON"T say "focus" because some people make such an effort out of it. It isn't an effortful thing, it is a noticing, maybe a noticing with curiosity, but just a noticing. So its like a mindfulness stance.

Some people try to control what comes up in their awareness with "focus" and "concentration" and "trying" but that's not it.

"Just notice it" and simultaneously turn on the machine. That does the trick.
