Below are my thoughts on the LP.
I don't know the statistics for recovery from CFS. So please take the following as my opinion.
With regard to the LP and CFS induced by physical trauma or emotional trauma, it claims to work with both.
I personally can't see why the process would work better with emotional trauma.
The Lightning Process helped me regain physical health. In the 3 days training, I did not work on any history of emotional trauma. The LP would not be my process of choice for dealing with emotional trauma. For emotional release work, I would recommend the Journey Process or the EFT technique. Primarily in the LP training we were taught to apply the technique to physical symptoms, though there was a lady there who was working with an emotional issue of grief rather than ME/CFS.
The stated aim of the LP is simple: to help you live the LIFE YOU LOVE.
The training teaches you the process so you can apply it. It is very practical. It is not interested in explaining how the training works, so again please take the following comments as my own opinion.
It is good to be clear that the LP is not a therapy, but a training programme.
Why does the LP work? The originator – Phillip Parker – does not in fact claim to know why. He was finding he was having a lower success rate in helping people with ME/CFS than other illnesses – physical or emotional. He started to dread these patients! He worked to develop a system to help them.
Please note, he is claiming that he had a good success rate in helping other patients who were physically ill as well as those dealing with emotional or confidence issues.
To understand my view on how the LP works, it would help to first read my article on psychoneuroimmunology. (Opens a window on a different website.)
This experiment proved a connection between our neurology and our immune system.
The fact that such a connection exists shows that we can influence our immune system through our beliefs.
(The LP is not a spiritual process, but, in my view, it is working with a spiritual law – that our beliefs and expectations (our faith) can quite literally impact on our reality.)
