In your book you suggest that each of us most likely has a dominant polarity structure within us that may or may not be dormant.
SW: Yes, and what I find is that it is common for us to deal with a situation by not making a choice. We sit on the fence. When we do that, we hold two opposing points of view at the same time. And if we do that again, and again, and again in our life, we begin to reinforce what I call the dominant polarity conflict structure. It can be slightly different for every person, but it is what we fall into if we don’t want to make a decision, like a job we can’t stand, but one we don’t want to leave. If we don’t want to make a decision, then that dominant conflict structure gets activated and more emotional conflict wells up in our life.
And, as you describe in the book, it’s not just one polarity structure, like keeping a job or not keeping a job. It’s layers and layers of these all operating simultaneously, right?
SW: Yes. Let’s say there’s a dominant polarity conflict structure in which someone feels grief and believes he or she is a victim, and also feels anger and wants to lash out at the world. There can be many times in their life where, because of circumstances, they activate that structure and reinforce it where they feel grief and anger. It gets reinforced over and over, through different situations. Perhaps they lost a job or their wife left them or something like that. In each of those situations, that dominant conflict structure can be activated and reinforced.
You wrote that during a PRP session someone may feel some resolution from a current polarity conflict related to a job, and then in a second session they may experience some resolution from a similar situation earlier in their life. In a third session, they may even go back childhood or a past life. Do you think these polarity conflicts keep arising to give us a chance to make a decision or to resolve it?
SW: Yes, that’s an interesting question. I think on a higher metaphysical level, the answer is yes, that in a sense we call them in or create them to rise above them, to resolve them and rise above them. It’s like we choose before we incarnate that we want to learn to love without conditions, and so we choose then to enter a family where it is all conditional love and where there is emotional abuse and so on. I creates tension. The reason we chose that at a soul level is to rise above it, to learn to love without conditions.
I think on the highest level, from a spiritual perspective, that is absolutely the case. We actually choose and create these conflicts to resolve them. What I find with the PRP is that it is a very, very rapid resolution of the process versus taking lifetimes or multiple lifetimes to resolve it.
Let me just give you one example: Suppose a client comes to me and they’re feeling poor and they can’t make a lot of money and all that. What I may not know is that they have three past lifetimes bleeding through into their current life. In two of them they were slaves and in one past life they died as a beggar in medieval England. Now these energies are bleeding through and affecting this life.
Well, the Higher Self of the client knows of those past lives and knows how to resolve them, and in multiple PRP sessions it will address them and resolve them. As a therapist, I may not know those lives exist, nor does the client know the lives exist, but those lives are creating a great impact. So, by having the Higher Self of the client do the healing process, it can address all the past-life stuff, childhood stuff, negative emotions and negative beliefs that are creating that polarity conflict structure.
What is the Higher Self’s role in the healing process? Are there any other modalities that talk about this?
SW: Let’s see, how do I answer this? I am not a trained psychologist and I don’t know all the modalities out there, but my understanding is that very few standard conventional psychological therapies involve the Higher Self. The therapist is in charge of the session. They dig and probe into the client’s subconscious, find out what the traumas are, have them talk about them, and that sort of thing. But, they’re not engaging the client’s Higher Self to do the healing. The therapist is playing the role of being the healer.
I think that’s why, if you look at statistics, most psychological sessions are really ineffective and people spend years and years in therapy. But by engaging the Higher Self, the Higher Self directly goes to the problem, elicits the emotions so the client can feel negative emotions and clear them during the process.
What inspired you to invite the Higher Self to participate in this process?
SW: The original process came in to me. It was channeled in. It came in as a download, that this is how to do it. In the early 1990s, I was taking a workshop and the teacher talked about how we create inner conflict. So, I started asking myself this question over and over again: “How can we resolve inner conflict? There has got to be a way to resolve it.” And then, all of a sudden on January 11, 1991, this process dropped in. It was a bare-bones process, but the key element of that process was having the client’s Higher Self do the healing. I can’t really say my personality came up with it. It was brought in as higher dimensional information.
Have you found that the Higher Self always responds to invitations?
SW: Absolutely. That is my experience. I have done about 800 PRP sessions since 1992 and the Higher Self always responds. If the Higher Self is requested to do the healing, the Higher Self immediately responds and begins doing it.
Do the client’s spiritual beliefs have any effect on this process?
SW: Actually, that’s a very good question. They don’t. First of all, the chances of someone coming in as an atheist to see me is probably nil, but even if an atheist came in and did the statements I asked and asked their Higher Self to do the healing, the healing would occur because the client still has a Higher Self, even if the personality does not believe in the Higher Self. And, once that request is made to the Higher Self, the Higher Self immediately begins the healing process.
In your book, you suggest three ways to remove inner conflict structures: taking an enlightened path, getting off the fence, and the Polarity Resolution Process. Let’s talk about these.
SW: The enlightened path to me is seeing Source or the Great Mystery Behind All Form, seeing that all form arises from Great Mystery and if you move deeply enough into that knowingness you see perfection in everything, regardless of what is going on in your life. Even though it is inconvenient or something you don’t like, it doesn’t engender a negative emotional reaction. You realize it is part of the process. So, that’s a state that helps you move beyond the activation of polarity conflict structures.
In terms of getting off the fence, to me all polarity conflicts arise from sitting on the fence. You are holding onto two points of view and you choose not to make a choice. You choose to not get off the fence in one direction or another. So, as long as you are on the fence holding on to these two opposing points of view, you are going to create stress for yourself until you make a decision to get off the fence.
Let me give you an example: Suppose a woman is in a bad marriage, but this woman does not have any skills in the outer world. She is not a typist. She is not a lawyer. She cannot make money. She is dependent on her husband for the income. Meanwhile, her husband periodically goes into a rage and projects negative energy at her. So she has a polarity conflict: she wants to leave the marriage because of the pain, and yet, if she packs her bag and walks out the door, she begins to realize she cannot make the money to support herself. So she goes back into the marriage. She has this conflict structure going on: “I need to leave,” “I can’t,” “I need to leave,” “I can’t leave,” and it oscillates back and forth. If she made the choice to get off that fence and actually leave, then that conflict structure would not exist anymore. If she actually left the marriage and divorced the guy, there would not be any more conflict in her life around that issue.
It’s about getting off the fence and making the choice of which side of the fence you want to step off into, rather than holding on to two opposing points of view and emotions.
A lot of us are chronic fence sitters. What faces us is not always an easy choice.
SW: No, in fact, sitting on the fence requires a great amount of energy to maintain that conflict. We move into being not motivated to do anything, just sit around and become couch potatoes and watch TV. Absolutely. My other belief truly is that once you get off the fence and clearly decide a direction, the Universe can now support you and it can bring in all the resources, whatever is needed to meet your goal. But as long as you are on the fence, you are oscillating between “Yes I can” and “No I can’t,” and it’s never going to be able to support you.
