At times I think my friend Jim will build his entire PSYCH-K® practice walking his dogs. Several weeks ago he met a member of his apartment maintenance crew. They chatted about the weather and stuff.  Jim noticed that J.X. (as we will call him) never looked him in the eye.  Most of the time J.X. looked at the ground with his shoulder slouched.

J.X. wanted to know what Jim did for a living and Jim described his work helping people with PSYCH-K ®.  J.X. described his reaction to that as thinking Jim “was pretty kooky.”  After that two said hello and chatted from time to time.  Even as they became better acquainted, J.X. still avoided looking Jim in the eye. Jim saw that J.X. hung his head and slouched when he noticed him working in the apartment complex.

One evening Jim heard knocking on the door.  He opened it and there stood J.X.  Although he told Jim that he still thought his methods were “kooky” he was desperate.  He was willing to try anything.  Jim asked what the one thing he wanted to change was.  J.X. replied that he had “felt worthless and had no self esteem at all.”  Jim explained the details of how a PSYCH-K® balance works.  He facilitated a basic balance with J.X. J.X. raised his head and looked Jim in the eye.   His head stayed up and his shoulders rolled up and back.  He said that he felt better.

A few hours after Jim facilitated the balance for J.X. he got a phone call.  J.X. was on the line.  He had gone home.  He didn’t stay there.  For the first time in years, he felt the urge to go out to a club.  He was calling from the club to tell Jim that three girls were talking to himHe had gone to clubs before.  Mainly, he stayed on the edge for a while and then went home.  Not this time.  He was not only talking to three girls, but he had started all three conversations!

Since the balance J.X. bought a new truck.  Jim told J.X. that he had progressed from being mainly a cleanup worker.  Now, he was doing real maintenance work.  Jim suggested it might be a good time to ask for a raise.  J.X. agreed with him.  The next time he was in the office J.X. pointed out to the manager that he was doing more difficult and important work.  He said that he deserved a raise.  The manager agreed with him.  The raise will show up on his next pay check.

A few weeks later I met J.X.   He was friendly and smiling.  He looked me in the eye and held his head up and shoulders back.  Most of all he flashed me a high wattage smile.  It was just impossible not to smile back!  He confided to me, as if it were a great joke, that at first he thought Jim was just some old kook.  Now he thinks Jim is a miracle worker!


I have a friend, Jim Bates, who is an experienced PSYCH-K® facilitator. I am a beginner facilitator and Jim sometimes lets me work with him. Some of his clients have agreed to let him share their stories with me and you.  The stories show the terrific impact this process can have in individuals in a very short time.
Jim first met “J “through Laurie. Jim and Laurie had spoken several times. Laurie knew that Jim worked with people to help them get over problems and blockages in their lives. One day, she stopped her car next to him as he walked his dogs. She asked if he could do anything to help alcoholics. He told Laurie could, if they wanted help.  The alcoholic never contacted Jim.

A day or so later Jim answered a knock at the door. A young man stood there with both arms held out in front of him at a 45 degree angle. “J” introduced himself as a friend of Laurie’s and said he was desperate for help. Jim invited him in. As “J” shuffled in the room Jim noticed that he bounced off one side of the door frame. He also noticed that his shirt was worn on both arms and shoulders.

Jim explained what a facilitation process was, and what his rates where. “J” said he wished to work with Jim. Jim asked him what one thing in his life he wished to change the most. “J” said, “I want to stop being so angry at my father.”
Jim explained to him that the way the PSYCH-K process works is on one precise problem at a time. The removal of one problem is often like taking a single can out of a pyramid of cans. All the cans fall. “J” understood that and said he wanted to continue. Jim facilitated the Basic balance with “J”.  “J” said that he “felt a shift.” He paused a moment and said, “I don’t feel angry anymore.”

Jim asked him to walk back and forth across the living room. “J” walked with his hands swinging naturally at his sides! Jim then instructed “J” to go down the hall and look at himself in the mirror. “J” did.  Jim saw that “J” was not bumping against the walls when he walked. Jim asked “J” what he saw.

“J” said, “I LOOK HAPPY.”

You can use PSYCH-K ® to change your mind. Changing your mind can physically change your brain.

PYSCH-K ® facilitation has many powerful effects. One of the most powerful enables the partner to change lifelong self-limiting beliefs. A self-limiting belief is what it sounds like. It is a belief about your ability to learn, to achieve, to perform, even to love and to heal that stops you. The belief sets the limit. You reach that barrier and stop. The belief may have originated in a time when it was true. It may be folk wisdom that is now folk folly.

Karen McKy trains facilitators in intervening in the belief system. PSYCH-K ® is effective. It usually produces results in a single session. This effectiveness led to Karen’s collaboration with Jeffery Fannin, PhD.  Dr. Fannin is a neuroscientist based in Arizona. Dr. Fannin uses qEEG examinations to pinpoint the intensity of activity throughout the brain. Dr. Fannin uses this information to provide custom designed cognitive enhancement training.

The training repairs brain damage. The training increases the brain’s ability to use both hemispheres at a normal or enhanced level. The brain sees and interprets the world with the strengths of both hemispheres. The highly logical left side of the brain and the intuitive right side of the brain observe, interpret, analyze and feel everything. The result is planning, problem solving and creativity.  These all have structure, coherence and detail, as well as inspiration, unique associations, and empathy. Dr. Fannin verifies the changes in the brain with a second qEEG.

Dr. Fannin did a quick test of the qEEG equipment on a member of his staff one morning to verify the machine settings. That morning the staff member displayed radically different results from her last qEEG of three days before. Surprised, Dr. Fannin asked his assistant what she had done over the weekend. She reported that she had taken an introductory PSYCH-K ® class.

The Dr. Fannin became interested in PSYCH-K ® and attended the annual PSYCH-K ® Instructors Conference. During that conference Dr. Fannin met Karen. At that time he did a brain mapping of Karen.

Both the brain enhancement training and the PSYCH-K ® facilitation have great benefits for clients. They work differently and provide different improvements. The qEEG’s administered before and after either intervention show changes in the brain.
