Basically, what it takes to buy the focus book and start practicing.
From my experience, it is easy to learn the technique. Anyway, it will
be very effective also to take advice from an experienced user, even try
to work with him.
b. Can deal with wide range of problems:
Based on my experience these are the problems
where the tool was proved to be effective:
Loosing weight, Straightening my posture, Light illnesses of skin,
Bad-tempered eruptions, Sex. It seems to me that it may be helpful also
in other areas.
6. Disadvantages - summarySince the this tool is dealing with the body/soul complex as a
"black box" this means that the processes in this black box are not
controlled. This means that the changes in your body/soul will take place
in a some ways, sometimes surprising. For example, I decreased my TV
consumption intentionally as a by product of working on my weight. From
my experience all this changes were positive, but again, uncontrolled.
a. The changes of the soul/body are uncontrolled:
b. May cause intense feelings:This is dangerous especially for the novice users - "negative" feelings
as fear, rage etc. may be temporarily intensified and concentrated,
causing very unpleasant experience. This tool needs short training
period (1-3 weeks) by the novice, and preferred by the help of
c. No wonder medicine:It is not a chemical. Systematic and regular usage is a must in order to
make sure the problem/ilness is cured - this may take a few years depend
on the usage intensity. Anyway short usage may make the symptoms less
critical almost immediately so it may be used as some kind of "aspirin".
d. Too simple:The usage of this tool is very simple, so simple that many people that
could take advantage of that tool are not using it because they think it
is some kind of practical joke.
7. MiscAs a whole - excellent tool with great advantages and minor disadvantages.
It does not hamper your functionality in any sense.
The total result is that the times you feel good during the day are much
more from the times you are feeling bad. As a result your functionality
is usually improves which may cause more moments of "feel good" and so
I want to make it clear again that this report is based on experience of
one man - me. Hence, it is very subjective report and I really do not know
how this tool will influence other human being.
6) On To The Focus: A "report" of Z. L. - a 47 bachelor
trainee, after few months of regular weekly sessions
This short story was originally written in Hebrew.
The original title was in fact: On The 'Moked' (a word
with double meanings - one, 'Focus' as in English, the
other, the fire with which victims were executed (used
as metaphor for being in the focus of less than
The choice of this word, was to convey the double
aspect of 'being observed by magnifying glass': when its
focus is directed into the self, it can be either
enlightening or scorching (or both).
So, to make this story short, we are now focusing
on my quest after the unknown mystery: hou/when/and
why, did doctor shalif make such a success with "Z. L.
project", and where he was so able to manage where all
the others were 'so able' to fail?
In fact, Ilan is his method, and the method is Ilan.
"You can't get one without the other", as the words of the
Howsoever, in sessions, we are chatting, eye to
eye, and I feel no authority, no arrogance no
"professional mystique". Than I understand, what is
happening, and why the sessions with Ilan so fit me.
Here I am, some Jewish boy, intelligent a little,
intellectual a little, conscious a little. But, does not want
to exchange his dependence on Polish mom, for an
out-of-family figure - doctor or not.
And as busy in focusing, turning all emotional
energies directly inside my head, and concentrate in my
feelings, I begin to learn and experience my internal
music and its nuances.
And then, I am wandering, exploring my new
world, do not waste any kind of negative emotions at
myself or at the long haired guy sitting next to me. This
non-serious man, I invited to teach me and train me with
his magic words.
And some how, for unknown reason, we become
friend - full partners in this fantastic trip. And it is really
fun, as you all already know.
And so Ilan, my new cooperator, does not take
from me any thing at all. Except his fee... And his own
experiences. He does not take, completely, even one
thing of those - the others of some schools, are so
eager to bite off and on their patients.
No manipulations take place and no bullshit.
Than, I could watch myself at the right mirror, not
the distorting one, slowly and surely, feeling, seeing,
identifying my pains and scratches.
Step by step I discover, absurdly, that the points of
all cures are, how funny, attached to all the points of
I sit in my place, my back aching of uprightness,
and the nape of the neck tired of being continuously
erect... and plugging to my private seismograph. Not to
a polygraph machine - searching nonsense, or some
microscope watching microbes.
And the punch line.
So I say to myself, "if every thing go so well, where
is the catch? It's too easy to be true".
O. K., some day I'll find it.
Who cares now.
To Ilan - the one & only.
