Do you get tired of ordinary conversation? After awhile you know every gesture, every non-verbal, and can even predict when to nod, laugh, shrug, or give a grunt. Liberation Psychotherapy gives access to deeper levels of human experiencing, and, in so doing, probably also lead people to question the pastiming of normal society. Irregardless , we shall plunge on providing penetrating questions for those who have tired of superficiality and want to know where people really live in the depths of their personalities.

I. The Golden Question for Real Feelings.

For a person really experiencing grief:
"How can I be with you?" Pause. Wait until the person answers from deep within.

For a person needing permission to cry:
"Do you know that it is okay to weep and even to sob if that is what your body needs?"

For a person unaware of the source of their sadness:
"What have you lost? What is it that you are missing?"

For a person lost in deep grief:
"I'll be over here silently. When you need something or want to talk, will you tell me?"

For a person in ordinary sadness:
"Do you have permission to just sigh and go with what you are feeling?"

"How have you been offended?"
"How can I be with you?'

"Do you know that it is okay to breathe, shake, and make loud sounds until your breathing returns to normal?"
"How can I be with you?"

III. The Golden Questions for Copied Feelings

"Who are you acting like, right now? You don't seem you."

" Is it your choice to feel what your ________ felt?"

V. Accessing human depths

We are a little cautious in our presentation of the Golden Questions because we know that the implementing of them means a step away from banal, everyday normal talk. We prefer to think that these questions can be asked in a soft, non-threatening manner so that no one will be offended. Rather, we hope, those you want to go deeper with will actually be complimented because, finally, someone understands and cares! Still, it is best to enter the unconscious depths with a measured cautious step.

And, yes, the three feelings of old, copied, and manipulative are clear and verifiable ways that the unconscious shows itself. People in the process of feeling one of these three have no conscious understanding of not being appropriate or present. With calm and patient questions, however, they can bring forth the depths so that authentic communication can occur. We think you will find this exciting.
