Cutting the Ties That Bind

We are all bound by invisible chains that bind us, block us and keep us from being who we really are. These ties come from childhood from family environment, culture, fears or reactions to events that took place years ago.

A method developed by Phyllis Krystal can help us to cut the ties that bind us to anyone or anything that acts as an authority and exerts control over us. Detachment from such control will allow us to remove the accumulated layers of conditioning which obscure the inner light of the Higher Consciousness (Hi C) or Real Self. The exercises that are contained in this method can help to free us from everything that prevents the Real Self from being expressed through the exterior shell or receptacle comprised of the body, mind, personality and ego.

Getting Started

Her two books "Cutting the Ties That Bind" and "Cutting More Ties That Bind", contain the theory of the method that makes the need for regular practice more understandable. They discuss the various influences, early training and conditioning, and inherent belief systems and behavior patterns that combine to form the obstructing layers. They also offer practical ways to remove them. The Hi C can then take Its rightful role as guide and ultimate authority in place of the ego.

She stresses the fact that this is not a „quick fix“ method. Each person must be willing to practise the appropriate exercizes and not expect someone else to produce a panacea to eliminate all their problems. It is possible only if each one is willing to concentrate on bringing about the necessary changes and growth in him or her self instead of trying in vain to change anyone else.
