I've found about Self-Parenting (SP) about 323 days ago and today I've completed my 320th SP session (+ 10.5 months). I can easily and wholeheartedly say that my life is not the same since I learned about this profound technique. I consider myself very lucky and privileged to discover SP as well as to meet Dr John Pollard so early in my self-growth journey (5 years in total).
If you really want to "change" yourself and your life, this is the best way that I have ever experienced! When you order "SELF-PARENTING: The Complete Guide To Your Inner Conversations" (ie yellow book) and "The Self-Parenting Program: Core Guidelines for the SELF-PARENTING Practitioner" (ie blue book), you don't only get these books but also a brand new and complete system called Self-Parenting Program. I feel Dr. Pollard's other book "How Relationships Work" would also complement this program to excellence.
In a recent morning session my Inner Child has commented about this Self-Parenting Program as below:
"Learn this, everyone! This is a new language, it is a bit hard to learn it but it is well worth the effort."
"This is the best thing that has happened to me! It gave me a chance to express myself and to be heard by you whereas beforehand I was abandoned. I want to thank you for learning this new language"
"Are you aware how special is this? I am savoring happiness, intimacy, and continuity (consistency) with this program."
As my Inner Child says it is a new but advanced language which promises you many positive changes that you could NOT have imagined beforehand in your life given you follow the program and its guidelines word by word. Or else you will be drawn in the raging river!
Why do I find Dr Pollard's books and SPP so superior and advanced?
First of all, here you are the captain of your life journey and self-discovery. You don't need anyone else in this life journey, only guidance to check if you are at the right track. You finally realize that you "can" and "are" in charge of your own life and your Inner Child. You do actually become your own therapist.
You gradually but surely become conscious of old programmings and conditionings acquired from parents, friends, schooling, culture etc and start to have your own natural self-parenting style that is democratic, loving and caring to your own Inner Child.
As you accumulate more hours of SP sessions which I would describe as the intimate and nurturing setting for Inner Parent and Inner Child interaction, you start to expand this brand new style of treatment to your own Inner Child outside the sessions ie into real world. At some point you stop giving "automatic" or "learned" reactions but rather spontaneous responses irrelevant to past conditions and experiences.
You don't specifically work on your outer relationships in SP sessions, yet your outer relations also automatically improve as you really start to love and care for your Inner Child.
I would lastly say if you are really looking for a "permanent" and right (there are no short cuts here!) solution to your recurring personal problems, you need to read first the "SELF-PARENTING: The Complete Guide To Your Inner Conversations" If you are determined to stay within the rules of SPP and allocate daily 30 minutes to the most important relationship of your own life, you will find all the answers leading to a fulfilling and happy life first inside, then in outside world.
