The Kuhn Method® (KM) is a novel paradigm and a treatment method that effectively treats PTSD and post-traumatic dissociative states and disorders like anxiety, depression as well as identity disorders. The recording of a mental trauma is meant to be stored quite indefinitely as a primitive form of learning and survival tool that will protect the organism from re-experiencing a life-endangering event. It is a perception-thought-energy complex, a construct that manifests as a charged mental image that can be activated by perceptions of a similar incident to the trauma or by directing one’s attention to it.
The traumatic complex or construct consists of a highly energized and emotionally charged mental image of the traumatic event. It includes perceptions, thoughts, decisions, data, conclusions, and actions from that time. It is a holographic copy of the universe at the time of the trauma, a copy of the universe at the time of the trauma. The image and charge make it often more accurate than the present time. Its charge causes the chronic symptoms of PTSD.
The Kuhn method resolves PTSD by discharging the traumatic charge, using commands to erase or dissolve the charge that originates from the individual himself, coming from his free operating consciousness. That source of command comes from the word, i.e., “I AM” and “I erase the trauma.” or its components and the condition itself. caused discharge of the charge is, therefore the target of the intervention. The individual locates the charged words or definitions and erases the charge by repeating specific commands that tell the individual, the ‘I’ to erase the charged image, or its components (negatively charged Identities.)
The ‘I’ represents one’s free operating consciousness, awareness, and self-awareness. It uses Attention and Intentions, which work like beams that lock on concepts, identities, charged mental constructs, individuals, and realities. Applying simple commands like “I erase the trauma” or “I erase the fear or the depression” many times will finally cause a full discharge and complete erasure of negative charge. Repeating specific commands will bring about the erasure of symptoms associated with the charge.
The process reminds the effect that was seen in the original quantum physics experiment when the presence of the observer in the experiment changed its outcome by changing the organization and manifestation of subatomic particles.
The technique, when standardly applied, resolves most cases of PTSD, life crises, dissociative disorders, and identity disorders. It is simple and direct and does not require long academic training. It relies, though, on one’s good perceptions, communication skills, and knowing what not to do, which can interfere with getting results. This is not psychotherapy that uses interpretation, reliance on the meaning of thoughts, and trying to change one’s understanding and interpretation. The only purpose of the Kuhn Method is to discharge the charge and, by that, erase the symptoms and condition of PTSD.
All mental symptoms, compulsions, inhibitions, and negative emotional states emanate from negatively charged holographic mental constructs, which record the universe when trauma occurs. The method is based on the realization that post-traumatic charge can be readily discharged by the patient by repeatedly uttering simple verbal commands to erase it gradually, i.e., “I erase the charge.” When fully discharged, the image and related symptoms vanish, and the individual achieves an irreversible release of negative symptoms and charge. The process is irreversible and, when completed, restores the individual’s pre-traumatic personality. The process is also effective in recovering peak performance, creativity, and well-being.
The technique has both a verbal and a visual route. The verbal commands erase the charge of words, concepts, symptoms, negatively charged images, or charged complex life situations and crises. The visual processes are based on commands to explode (erase or burn) mental visions of negative situations and traumatic incidents. Each process is carried to a total erasure and a state of complete release. The release is a state of being fully present, mentally quiet, not thinking, breathing freely and deeply, having free attention, and being free of any preoccupation and thinking. At that point, the individual cannot recreate the charged images they have erased anymore. In contrast to Exposure Therapy, The Kuhn Method does not stir the traumatic charge in a manner that causes discomfort to the individual, the ‘I,’ who is separated from the charge and looks at it from an exterior point of view.
This Method and Technique were developed by Dr. Daniel Kuhn in a heuristic manner based on his clinical observations, conclusions, and trials. Interpretations, Evaluations, and Transference were avoided entirely because of their subjective nature, which can corrupt the process of locating and discharging the traumatic charge. The Method adheres faithfully and exclusively to the descriptive text from the treated individual. The purpose of the Method is primarily to search and locate the charge that is attached to specific charged words that the patient originates when describing their traumatic experience (a textual approach.) Any alteration, paraphrasing, or interpretation of that wording usually prevents the charge from being located, evoked, and released.
The Method is strictly faithful to the patient’s choice of words; the specific charged words are connected directly to the targeted charge. Consequently, rephrasing the patient’s statements and interpretation are therefore totally excluded. For the same reason, transference and searching for contextual understanding and meaning of the experience or search for understanding of the assumed causes are avoided.
The ‘I’ represents the being themselves, the Individual’s free operating consciousness. After PTSD develops, the ‘I’ partially, intermittently, or loses its freedom, identity, independence, and self-determinism. It becomes controlled by the highly charged traumatic construct and its negative identities. The ‘I’ often becomes identified with the traumatized identity and thinks it is themselves, i.e., the victim, the failed one, the depressed, helpless one, etc.
Central to the Method is the general understanding that the ‘I’ is not another identity, a mental construct, a circuit that is not creative and has a limited repertoire. The ‘I’ is a viewpoint in space that can shift its location at will, consider, create, and uncreate, and facilitate conceptualization, learning, change, and healing. It becomes apparent from observation of the patient’s descriptions of their traumatic experiences that the word ‘I’ is vital in communication between individuals. Without it, human language and communication cannot exist. The words ‘is,’ ‘be,’ ‘am,’ ‘I,’ and ‘you’ are indispensable in human communication and languages. However, in contrast, identities are objects and are therefore not vital to allow languages and communication to occur unless they exist and are helpful at that time.
The word ‘I’ represents the conscious individual; it is a viewpoint, a point of emanation of attention and intention, of creation (creativity), change, and elimination. It is the source of empathy, which allows understanding between individuals. (It does not exist among identities.) The ‘I’ is a being, a Free Operating Consciousness (FOC). It fundamentally differs from one’s negative identities, i.e., the victim, the depressed, the stressed, the traumatized, the depressed, the betrayed, and the helpless identities, all of which are negatively charged fixed ideas. Post-traumatic identities lack self-awareness and the ability to change. They forcefully and automatically hypnotic command on the individual in specific circumstances that compel or inhibit his behavior in specific contexts and circumstances to protect the organism’s survival. In contrast, the ‘I’ is capable of self-awareness and self-reflection, being aware of himself.
When the ‘I’ is free and not subjugated to the hypnotic control of one’s negative identities, it is capable of effortlessly erasing negative images using its Intention and Attention as the tools of change. Both attention and intention are ‘beams’ or extensions that have a quantum reach to any place or concept intended. They target specific concepts. They may focus on a small charged item or use wide beams to embrace a bigger composite, i.e., any of the following: a word, a sentence, a paragraph, a chapter, a book, a library, a star, a galaxy, or the universe; a person, a group, a nation or civilizations. It can release the charge effortlessly by repeated commands by the ‘I’ to erase. It can explain why people hope and pray.
The ‘I’ loses its self-determinism when hypnotized by a Traumatic Charge emanating from negative identities (the victim me, the failed me, the vengeful me, the depressed me, the angry me, etc.)
In conclusion, the Kuhn Method and technique frees the ‘I’ and restores the individual’s ability to operate, create, be self-determined, and be in control. Its goal is to attain freedom, creativity, and well-being. The Kuhn Method effectively addresses trauma and dissociation in the mind without delving into brain function or dysfunction.
