Hello PSTEC practitioners who use Cascade Release.
I wanted to know what kinds of issues you have used this with and your experiences and outcomes. I just regressed a client using hypnosis to a causal event and am not sure if using Cascade will be of benefit to her now??
I also want to try it with myself first before using it with a client and am not sure how to identify a target issue since many of my stronger emotional issues have been tapped away.
I'd love to hear from you!

Cascade Release (CR) is quite different from the other PSTEC Tools, such as the Click Tracks (CT), EEF's or PSTEC Positive (PP).
How Does CR Work Differently?
CR works on a completely different aspect of the subconscious… almost entirely outside of awareness in an area of the subconscious Tim calls “The Workspace.”
The CT work mostly on the borders of consciousness in the pre-conscious (another part of the subconscious).
What type of Situations Are Ideal for CR?
The situations when CR comes in very handy is when there is little information to work with. Information such as memories and especially when you do not get at the cause of the issue.
So, for those that have a high degree of resistence, such as fear of allowing past memories to come into consciousness, CR can be quite helpful
Also, those that are very analytical… have you noticed how the analytical personalities generally have more difficulty in recall of memories and quite often cannot pair up an emotion or feeling with a memory? … CR can be very helpful.
Is CR Reliable?
This is the “tricky” part.
Because CR works with a part of the subconscious that is almost completely out of awareness, the effects can be difficult to ascertain. This is one reason that it is recommended for therapist use so that someone can assists the user in identifying and sorting out the memories, feelings and imagined events.
Of course, many people are using CR in a self-help situation… more on that below.
Contrast that with the CT where you identify an emotion/feeling and then pair it up with a memory/imagined event (most ideal use of the CT). You are being specific and can then rate the intensity of the emotion/feeling. In other words, not only are the CT's more simple, but easier to measure the results or progress.
Don't use CR as a crutch
I want to point this out because when I say “CR comes in very handy is when there is little information to work with… memories… cause… analytical personalities…”; I want to encourage you not to run to the CR too quickly just to hurry and get it done.
Why Do I Use the CT's More Often
I rarely use CR with clients. I always begin and work quite a bit with the CT because…
- The CT's are more simple and easier for the client to use on their own for homework (Homeplay?!)
- The CT's are easier to measure progress… again, easier for the client to use on their own.
- It encourages the client to learn to allow the memories and feelings through, rather than supressing them. This is important if the client is going to become more self sufficient in doing their personal work.
[/list] CT for Self Help?
Sure, you just need to approach your work with an infinite amount of patience and awareness.Infinite Patience Brings Immediate Results
The measurable results are not as quickly apparent in most situations, so I beleve you must be patient in knowing if there truly is a change or shift in your perception.
One practice that helps is establishing a way to measure your shifts in perception.
Choose something that is a daily activity or exprience. How do you feel about it… how easy is it to perform or observe?
This measurable activity must be related to the issue that you are working with using CR, of course.
As you work with CR, watch the shift of feelings surrounding this measurable act or observation.
So, CR can be used for just about any issue… again, it's not the type of issue so much as the situations surrounding the issue.
Oh, a note about your experience…
I just regressed a client using hypnosis to a causal event and am not sure if using Cascade will be of benefit to her now?
If you have regressed and discovered a causal event, no need to use CR, just pull out the CT! :- )
…not sure how to identify a target issue…
Start from the end… what do you desire in life? What is your target in life that seems elusive? Begin with that and ask, what's in the way… what issues prevent that from manifesting?
Again, I would spend more time with those questions by getting quiet and listening for the sub to communicate.
Once you have spent some time on allowing that to come through yet nothing occurs, you can take the issue that's in the way of your desire and focus on that issue… target that issue… and use CR.

I recently did CR for four times on 3 different issues. Before this I did the CT for about a year 3months….. I can tell you they are different.
I also believe that this is EASILY self-help. I felt something right away with the CR. I believe that this is the way to go with those early belief forming moments in your life. CR is very effective. This program is a pull the weed out by the roots. I feel that CT are not as powerful.
My impresion of the CR is that it gets the subconscious mind to find that particular event which caused whatever behaviour belief etc that you want to improve on or change. CT nibble around this but have a hard time getting to the root ( Listen to Cascade Tutorial about the stutterer). For example, you may have a strongly charged belief that you are not good enough; and you may have grown up in a family that had a toxic environment where ridicule and chaos was common. So it probably comes from here,right? But when did the belief start when was that precise moment when the dam broke? There is only one precise moment when a belief is formed.
This is the beauty of CR vs CT it really “cuts to the chase” if there is a trauma you can vividly remember than CTs are probabaly better. But for most of us the subcon mind formed our beliefs early on.
CR take the CAUSAL EVENT/IMAGE/MEMORY and moves out of the past where it cannot be referenced. Its not focusing strictly on the emotional release. This is getting to that root memory and removing it.
I find that the CT is very effective it has troubl getting to the “hidden memory”.
I would have to say in my humble opinion, that CR release is more powerful than the CT. All subjective, but healing the original cause of the problem is exactly what we want to do. Right.
