Become a Soul Whisperer

A “Soul Whisperer” – like a horse or dog whisperer – is one who must approach his subject with respect, silent awareness, non-violence and loving invitation. This is the path of the Logical Soul(tm).

“Soul whispering” is a skill modern-day psychologists or therapists need to cultivate if they want to fundamentally transform a person’s life.  Otherwise, change becomes short-term or takes a long time with mixed results.

Let me explain.

To many times, drugs are involved in taking care of the so-called mentally-ill.  This has less to do with the patient’s real needs and more to do with the needs of the doctor, the hospital, or society.  A patient “off his meds” is seen as a hazard to those around him and must be contained.

What would happen, however, if we took a radical new approach to mental illness – as some therapists are doing, and began to see instead the fundamental hidden logic of a patient’s thoughts and actions as the key to his or her recovery??  By negotiating a slight shift in direction, we also harness the power and strength of the so-called “subconscious” to fulfill ALL needs, including those of society and the doctor!

“Soul whispering” is a whole new paradigm of mental health.  It involves NO  drugs, hypnosis, or forced re-direction of the mind or subconscious.  It is gentle, kind, non-violent, and holistic.  This type of therapy would “invite” the person’s subconscious to integrate itself – something that happens on a regular basis with the Logical Soul(tm).


A friend of mine recently recommended to me as a guest on my radio show a certain “mind therapist” who specializes in re-programming unwanted behavior patterns in patients.  While I really love and respect my friend, and feel this person has something to offer, I hesitated because so many similar therapies are not compatible with the Logical Soul(tm).  Here’s why:

I did a lot of brainwave reprogramming on myself and others in the mid-1980’s, including theta learning during early sleep stages.  While it definitely worked – especially short-term – there seemed to be an inner rebellion going on in my consciousness . . . as if part of me were taken hostage without consent.

After many more years of trial and error I came to recognize a separate BEING inside each of us that is non-verbal, and extremely potent.  While techniques that attempt to “reprogram” this being vary in success, the one thing I’ve found with all of them is that they lack respect for the integrity of our inner being. By treated this being as a “thing,” i.e., “the subconscious,” we run the risk of cutting off the very communication we are trying to establish, and lose the upper hand in any negotiation to change hidden decisions – a domain governed by this inner being.

It’s a very subtle point of distinction, but the very key needed to unlock true access to inner transformation for those who lack the seed of success.  (BTW, for those who already HAVE the seed of success, it doesn’t matter.  Any approach they choose usually works.  This is why it’s so difficult for many successful folks to understand why EVERYONE doesn’t succeed!!)

After my discovery, I found that the Hawaiian Kahunas also had a practical cosmology that respected this inner being.  I do, in fact, now pattern much of my work around Huna.    Whenever I do sessions, I take great care to communicate directly with this being without blocking out the conscious mind.  The “Access” component to both selves is critical in changing hidden decisions – the basis of all programming.

By “re-programming” WITHOUT Access, there is a subtle trust violation, and the inner being begins to put up more of a wall than was there before.  Sometimes, in fact, the problem becomes MORE acute, not less, and drugs or other invasive procedures become the only alternative.

NON-VIOLENCE is a cornerstone of Indian Vedic philosophy, and worked for Gandhi and Dr. martin Luther King, Jr. in overturning the existing social order.  This technique ALSO works on the subconscious.

Learn it.  Use it, and transformation is yours!

People ask me all the time about the technique I discovered called the Logical Soul(tm), and how it works. 

The answer is always the same:  it is a simple and natural technique that allows you to access and change hidden decisions that affect your goals, your life, and your destiny.  It is also a way to “flip on” the internal passion that we are all born with, but lost soon after early childhood. 

But “self-improvement” its not.  I discovered that the Logical Soul(tm) is different from all other motivation and transformation techniques in that it does nothing to “improve” your “self” or your life.  I don’t even claim that anything SHOULD change!  When doing a session I simply assume you are where the sum total of all your decisions have placed you.  If you want to change, you must first become aware and transform your current hidden decisions that keep you where you are.

To do this you must become aware of the matrix of decisions that take priority and cover up your conscious goals and aspirations – trillions upon trillions of overlapping now-subconscious decision bundles and programs.   Most subconsious decisions can be traced back to ancestral decisions and by taking on someone else’s “stuff.” 

While this may sound simple, the implications are enormous.  Think of it this way: you are not only the sum of all the decisions you have made, but are the product of all the decisions your Ancestors have made!  Multiply this factor over seven or ten generations, and you can see why it becomes a stretch to think we have anything close to “free will.” 

We also have animal and reptilian influences!  The older parts of our brain, including the Limbic system, function purely to ensure our survival.   Even the so-called “higher” or newer portions of our brain – the cerebral cortex – have their differences.  The right hemisphere, for example, has its own unique VALUE SYSTEM that differs from the left hemisphere.  Its like having two (or more) people in there!    

The ancient Hawaiian Kahunas saw the so-called “individual” as 3 selves, corresponding loosely to Freud’s paragon, but separately funtioning in and of themselves.  Other cultures – particularly in the east – also see the so-called “individual” as a convenient invention of the mind and nothing more. 

The word, in fact, originated from the Greek term that described the self as undivided and a single whole.  This was – and is – a convenient tool if things need to be done.  Archimedes’ injuction “Give me a place to stand and I can move the world” is a perfect example of how the mind can provide that single ideological “place.” 

The hero is the ultimate individual.  Heroes can do anything, and we all strive to be one, whether we are conscious of it or not.  We live in the west, and this IS our culture!

The only drawback to Archimedes’ model, however, is that all heroes must have a “villain” or obstacle to overcome.   In the west, we have the news, and the news thrives on drama:  Good.  Evil.  Disaster.  Salvation.  Deliverance.  Corruption.  Change.  Ad infinitum . . .

 Transformation does not involve getting better, more dynamic, or by becoming a hero.  Quite the opposite, it involves relaxing into the true basis of the Self – that unbounded field of pure intelligence I call the Logical Soul(tm). 


I just finished a great book called My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor, PhD (Viking Books, 2006).  Dr. Taylor was a 37-year old Harvard-trained brain scientist when she had a massive stroke in 1996 that damaged the entire left hemisphere of her brain.  

This is a unique story about a very rare event – a brain scientist having a brain breakdown and recovery, so Dr. Taylor has a very unqiue perspective on what this event means, and can compare it with what she knew before the stroke, compared with her direct experiences AFTER the stroke.  The findings are astounding. 

In the book she writes that it took over eight years to recover. With the help of dozens of caretakers she was eventually able to relearn everything she ever knew and “get back” some of what she had lost.    She also found she could discard much of what she knew before – in her “past life” that no longer served her, e.g., negative emotions and thoughts that damaged the sensitive circuitry of her wounded brain.   

Most of the book covers the different funtions of the right and left hemispheres.  The left is very judgmental and divise – its nature, of course.  The right brain, on the other hand, embraces universality, feelings, and a sense of ‘knowing that cannot be discerned by the other half.  

These observations fit almost exactly with the model the Hawaiian Kahunas described as the LOW SELF (Ku) and MIDDLE SELF (Uhane), and of course correlate with modern brain science.  What Dr. Taylor discovered as a so-called victim, however, was soemthign she said she could have NEVER learned as a scientist – that there is also a distinct difference in VALUES between the two hemispheres! (p. 133)

 If this is so – and she reports it is – then there are TWO FORCES within us, each striving for dominance on any given issue.  If the right brain wants to feel happiness, it may CHOOSE failure instead of success if it deems that a certain activity or job selected by the left brain is wrong. 

This is the basis of the SEED OF FAILURE – that someone with a strong SOF has equal parts left and right brain values that fight each other constantly.  While this might seem to be a hopeless situation, its not.  The Logical Soul(tm) techniques have the ability to synchronize these two parts of the brain and give you a certain peace in KNOWING that your goals, dreams and affirmations ARE in fact true for you. 

Present tense:  BE the goal you set for yourself and RESOLVE any hidden goal-to-action conflicts.  You are then on your way to true success.
