Paul giving a session

BasicR3X: Instructions

AUDIO: (No audio)

Response Options:

Great! Let's do the full pre-session check to make sure I'm ready for the session

I'm familiar with what is needed and I am fully sessionable. I've set up the session environment. Let's go!

I need to read up on how BasicR3X commands work

Lemme outta here!



This BasicR3X module is not a beginner's module. The user should know:
  • The Rub & Yawn procedure and how it is used in PaulsRobot sessions
  • The glossary of terms used at PaulsRobot, especially those central to the BasicR3X module
  • The basic idea of how a topic (feeling, incident, series of incidents, relationship etc.) is addressed both with the usual 6-Direction technique and also R3R (personal time-stream recreation procedure).
  • The mechanics of PaulsRobot sessions. One should have had success with PaulsRobot sessions and be very familiar with choosing the appropriate response option from a number of choices. Some of the BasicR3X screens have many options.

More instructions on some BasicR3X screens

You will see more instructions on some of the BasicR3X pages. These are almost always under Notes in the right-hand column. You should read them and follow them! After a while they will become familiar and you won't need to read them each time you hit the page. But if you skip reading them and assume you already know what they say, well, don't be surprised if you have a lousy session.

BasicR3X explanations

If you're not familiar with R3X and need some explanations on how it works, read here.

Answer questions aloud!

This is a talking module. Assuming you are alone, say your answers aloud as well as noting them in your worksheets. It helps with the session.

BasicR3X session end point

The end point for a BasicR3X session is covered here.

Notes (continued):

Rub & Yawn recommended

Rub & Yawn is an optional part of this module, as it is not native to R3X and the purist might prefer not to include it. However, it is strongly recommended that you use it vigorously and often as R3X all by itself tends to devastate havingness.

Basic equipment needed

You will need a computer screen, and a mouse. It is possible to do without sound, but most people prefer to have the sound turned on and listen to the commands as well as being able to read them, and often make comments aloud. You can usually remain seated throughout the session. You will need usual session things like worksheets and pens, and a clock or watch. Many people keep worksheets onscreen, using Notepad or a similar application.

Before starting the session

It is assumed that you know enough to only start the session when you have had enough sleep and are not tired; you have eaten enough good food (not junk food) and you are not hungry or thirsty; you are not under the influence of drugs or alcohol; you have set up a safe auditing environment and are not going to be disturbed by outside factors while you are in session (turn off your mobile phone, radio etc.); and you have enough time for the session.

Shutting down

If you feel yourself shutting down, recognize it as such. Hit the red Shutting Down link, and then rub stuff and yawn for as long as needed to get rid of the shutting down. End off dealing with the shutting down when you can rub away for a full minute by the clock without getting any more yawns. Close out the Shutting Down window, and continue the process where you left off.

If you feel you need some energy exchange during the session, but aren't particularly shutting down, that's OK, your choice. Make a note in your worksheets, and just start rubbing and yawning away. Once you start rubbing, rub for a full minute by the clock without any yawns before ending off, though.

Have a written session plan before you start the session

You should have a written session plan before you start. You can write this yourself if you don't have someone else acting as your session supervisor. The reason for writing it is so that you know exactly what you will be doing in the session, and don't go off on some wild tangent. You should always have a written session plan which you keep to in session.

Session plan not working in session

If the session plan turns out to not be working in session, then end off the session and write a different session plan outside of session. Why? In a heavy session one's analytical thinking powers will be tied up with dealing with the session phenomena and there won't be enough clear thinking ability remaining to make a sensible plan on the spot. Outside the session one can usually think much straighter, especially after a short break to clear one's head.
