Limiting Daily Technique Time to 20 Minutes, Tops — How counter-culture is that? And yet I do recommend it if you’re interested in today’s new consciousness lifestyle, THE NEW STRONG.
Three people I know personally, each in an exquisite state of Simplicity Enlightenment, have no trouble whatsoever with doing more than 20 minutes of Technique Time. As for the rest of us? Hundreds of my clients have tried this experiment, and it has not worked well. (Even before I published a how-to book this June about gaining THE NEW STRONG.)
Facilitating sessions, reading people’s auras, hearing their stories, oh yes. I know plenty of folks aiming for Householder Enlightenment who have experimented with more than 20, just a bit more… and wound up in pretty bad spiritual addiction. Instead of moving forward faster on that path to Enlightenment, they’re sloooooooooowed waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay down.
So ironic! Yet true!!!

Overdoing Technique Time, Oops
When I learned aura reading from Rose a few months ago, even before I knew about THE NEW STRONG, it was tempting to overdo Technique Time by a few minutes. What I’d just learned how to do was so interesting that I fudged the counting a little and ended up going over my 20-minute limit for several days in a row.
What did I notice?
- I was more lethargic – there was less physical and mental energy to say and do things in my life.
- I felt more tired – like I wanted to snooze instead of do things.
- Time seemed to go by faster – I’d notice ‘oh, the day is over already, why didn’t I get anything done?’
- I was more easily over-stimulated – I felt like a cat with its fur being ruffled the wrong direction.
Maybe that Extra Technique Time Wasn’t Such a Bonus After All
I felt muddy. Things lacked clarity. Mental connections didn’t quite mesh. And somewhat inexplicable and odd problems popped up in objective reality, making life more difficult.[What Blog Host Rose calls “Lack of support of nature,” as explained in “THE NEW STRONG.”]
Important priorities didn’t get done.
One example is writing comments here. Much as I kept trying to put words together, I kept giving up in incoherence and frustration.
When Even My Mind Doesn’t Work Right, Something Is Wrong!
That increase in Technique Time also dramatically slowed down understanding as I tried to learn new things.
I spent a lot more time in that confusing space where I had all these different concepts buzzing around, wondering how they fit together. I’d try to figure it out rather than really getting it.
And no matter how hard I tried, the puzzle pieces wouldn’t quite fit.
Plus, instead of writing out the new concept and ending up with new understanding of how it worked at the end, the writing tended to quickly devolve into journal-style inner explorations that were subconscious level. (This meant I was doing even more Technique Time.)
The Tradeoff for Me Was…
Information Versus Bliss
Regarding the Technique Time itself, I enjoyed the knowledge I gained in that extra minute or two, but the gleeful delight of spending time in delicious spiritual technique was lacking. It was more functional exercise rather than joy to be in Technique Time.
Information yes, but less bliss. Not a desirable trade-off.
I noticed after not too long, fortunately, and became very firm with my timer.
It was wonderful.
After a few days, I felt human again.
I had clear insights into concepts that had baffled me before; I moved forward in my life, got my priorities accomplished, and enjoyed every moment so much more.
So I Got It, Really Got It
Just a minute or two overdoing Technique Time is a very (negatively) impactful thing!
Not only did I feel human again, after getting back to that more balanced routine of inner activity and human integration…
I started to see the Divine more in the everyday things of life.
- Like flashes of grace where things became easy and smooth.
- Moments of exquisite beauty in nature.
- And the evidence of that person being a beautiful soul (even if they were being difficult at the time on the surface).
I didn’t try to see this, but it was just there, like catching a glimpse of someone in my peripheral vision. I’d smile with delight and then go back to whatever I was doing.
For me, limiting Technique Time to 20 minutes a day is the best possible choice I could make. Not only does it distill that time into a concentrated joy; the balance expands and improves my functioning and enjoyment in the rest of my life as well.
