  1. Clear

This involves utilization of exercises and techniques that help diffuse the fog of distress.

  1. Repattern

In this step, your self-limiting belief is being discharged and replaced with an empowering belief.

  1. Anchor

Useful techniques are taught so that the empowering belief becomes a permanent part on your life and must not be used as temporary relief.


This four-step program is not complicated at all so it would be very easy to follow. It includes a range of psychological and neuromuscular tests, as well as breathing exercises. The authors had also cited several cases based on real life and how the program had changed their lives.
