The case witnessing process is followed in these three steps:
1]The Passive case witnessing process is the first sensitive step. This step helps clear the conscious rattle of the patient and bring forth the spontaneous subconscious outpouring from the patient. This is done by allowing natural flow of the case without interrupting the patient. Here, we as physician passively listen to the verbal and non verbal fragmented individualistic expressions.
It is at this step that we come to know the Focus, the Level of experience (LOE), LOE expressed at what level, and type of defense (to protect their sensitive, deeper altered self) used by the patient. This step also aids to predict various aspects of further cases, such as which technique of the cwp to follow (in case of defense used by patient), WHAT & HOW to frame questions (in the next two steps), and which potency and in what repetition to follow.
2] The Active case witnessing process is the second step. It is a transition phase between the rest two. It aims at making the journey from the patient’s conscious self to his subconscious and beyond.
Rather, it serves as a check point, as well as a preparatory phase for the final journey towards the patient’s altered pattern. Here, we direct the patient away from his multidimensional talk towards a unidirectional talk. We as physicians also need to attune our mindset to uni-dimensional listening and move away from multi-dimensional listening
3] The Active-Active case witnessing is the last step and a grand finale. Here, at this stage, we now do not allow the patient to drift away into his conscious area. Here, all the isolated, scattered verbal and nonverbal expressions that spilled out during the Passive and Active stages are connected in one phenomenon. Our first aim here is to explore the complete altered pattern from the focus and then proceed further to explore the source itself. It is at this step that often allows the patient to experience the healing awareness right during his case interview.
The beauty of these three steps is that one gives way to the next so that the whole journey can be free of resistance. The scientific aspect of the first step effortlessly converts into intuition in the last step. The three steps are an inseparable part of each other. The steps are like a rainbow where the colours are separate, yet cannot be separated, as they emanate from one source.
