We had a person who drifted along on subjective type processing on and on and on. His case was fine and his processing worked fine, everything worked fine except there was no communication change of any kind occurring in the case after about eight hours of processing.
So we took this person and we had him kicking the walls and pounding the tables and banging the floor, and going outside and hitting his head against tress for over an hour. Just that.
Make him hit the table with his fist. And then say, "Now, are you certain the table is there?" And the fellow would think this over for awhile, and think and think and say "Mmm, well, of course the table's there. Everybody knows that."
"Go on. Hit it gain. Now are you certain it's there?"
"Hit it again. Hit it harder."
So he finally hits it hard enough to bark his knuckles, and feels tingling while he answers you. And you say, "You certain of that?"
"Yes," he'll say, "I'm certain of that."
"Well. . . . why?"
"Hit it without any reason at all."
You finally make him hit it with no reason. And then he finally starts getting antagonistic toward you. Coming up in tone. You gave the guy a certainty. He finished up an hour and a half or something like that and for the first time, he kicked a wall and was certain he'd kicked it. The rest of the time, he was just being mad about it.
And his case from that moment on soared, and his communication changes came in quite rapidly.
Have the person hit a table and then ask, "Are you certain that table is there?"
Then have him hit the table again and ask, "Are you certain that table is there?"
After running this for awhile, have him go over and kick the wall, then ask, "Are you certain that wall is there?"
This is continued in this manner, running it outside and inside on various objects, walls, floors, trees, etc.
