In Selected Persons Overt Straightwire, there is an element of diagnosis. How does one select the “selected person”?
Every time this process misses on a preclear, one of three things is at fault, either —
1. Pc has pt problem
2. Dynamic Straight Wire should have been run a week or two
3. The wrong person was selected for the process.
The whole thing is a matter of attention units (1950). If the preclear has his attention totally fixed on a terminal, little else is real to him. Look at one object only in a room. How real are the other objects? If a preclear’s attention is all bound up in some person, how can he find reality elsewhere.
Very well — how do we find, then, the “selected person”? The most loaded two-way comm question is,
“Who in your life is to blame for the condition you’re in?”
Others of like ilk produce the “selected person” you then run on Selected Persons Overt Straight Wire.
“Who was the person who really had it in for you?”
“Who do you know or did you know that you’d really hate to be?”
If the pc to any of the above or all of them says, “myself”, that’s what you have to run.
Select a new person each time pc splits off the one you’re running. You’ll find some amazing valence shifts.
