PSYCH-K provides a user-friendly way to rewrite the “software” of your mind by changing beliefs that sabotage you into beliefs that support you…quickly and easily. PSYCH-K helps you communicate directly with both the conscious and the subconscious minds. Most beliefs change in a matter of minutes through the process of balancing the left and right hemispheres of the brain. Changing subconscious beliefs that may be sabotaging well-intentioned actions is similar to reprogramming a personal computer. Using PSYCH-K techniques, a kind of “mental keyboard” to your own brain, you can increase “cross talk” between the two brain hemispheres, thereby achieving a more “whole-brained” state, which is ideal for changing subconscious beliefs.
