Unfortunately, the benefits of the programme have not accrued for me. The goal setting process is excellent but the paraliminals do not work for me at all.
What are you expecting the paraliminals to do for you?
From the sounds of it you might have hit some blocks... call them uncertainties, doubts, unfulfilled expectations, whatever.
Ironically the course will do that to many of us since we are trying to move out of our trance states and yet we cling onto them like a security blanket wanting to manifest the magic ray gun that will get rid of the invisible monsters under our bed. It's not until we learn that the ray gun is as invisible as the monsters to us that our security blanket actually provides us with some comfort and it's not until we learn that there are NO monsters under the bed that we release our grip on the security blanket.
We're really dealing with much the same thing with our trances. We fear we made will make faulty decisions, make mistakes that will punish us by not allowing us to reach our cherished goals.
So what do we do? Well if the paraliminals don't seem to be working it's time to use the other resources in the course. Do the feeling exercise. Don't try changing it. And for the paraliminals not working do the Inquiry process.
In answer to your question about the additional CDs, the meditation ones are explained in the course manual, plus the 4 interview CDs and the DVD... they are inspirational, adding other peoples experience and expertise to the information in the Course.
If you have the main course you have the foundation. The important part is to keep using the Feeling exercise and the Inquiry process often. Do you really need the other CDs to succeed? Do an enquiry process.
