A Perelandra Tip

If you've got a long list of symptoms and issues you want to address with your Perelandra tools, or if you have so many issues that even the idea of making a list is overwhelming, you'll appreciate this tip. It's written in the context of PIC List Testing, but the same approach can be used if you are just working with MAP.

MAP book and ETS bottle

Your MAP team can help you prioritize and coordinate symptoms and issues.

From a Perelandra staff member:

For nearly a year now, I've been doing my best to keep up with anywhere from 10 to 15 PIC Lists. They're not all for personal health issues. About a third or so were for me personally, some for my animals and some for environmental and soil-less garden goals.

Anyone familiar with the Perelandra Information Center or using PIC List Testing will know that's a lot to manage. I didn't start out with that many, but added as things came up.

I've been seeing progress and improvement, but having difficulty staying consistent. Moving swiftly, it would take me an average of 45 minutes twice daily to administer all of my PIC Units. When you have only one of each bottle you need, but the same Solution or Essence is included in different PIC Units, you have to be careful to take the correct group of bottles for each focus. That can take 3-4 minutes per PIC List.

It was unwieldy, and I kept feeling like I was pushing too hard and ignoring something significant. Finally backed into a corner, I asked my MAP team for help.

I opened my MAP (Medical Assistance Program) coning, activated a PIC connection and took a dose of ETS for Humans. Then I explained why I called the meeting: "I'm about to retest a bunch of my PIC Units. I'm having trouble keeping up. I need a smarter approach. I need help."

The next thought that occurred to me was to list my primary health concerns. I was sitting at my desk, in front of my computer, so I opened a blank note and started typing, "These are the primary health issues I manage every day," and then I made the list. There were 14 things that ranged from fatigue and the weird bump on my leg to my nearly life-long struggle with depression. Just the basics!

The next thought was to type out those things that I have trouble with most days, but not every day. Doing that added 7 more things to the list.

The next thought surprised me, but I went with it. A side note: It's helpful when you have a problem like this to not lock yourself up by requiring every question be answered in a yes/no format using PKTT. It's also really helpful not to get stuck in the question, "Who's idea was this, mine or my MAP team's?" If you're asking clear questions and making progress, the best move is to keep going with the thoughts and ideas that pop in.

So the thought that occurred to me was, "Are there unknown or unlisted factors I should include on this list?"

That's a yes/no question. I said it out loud, muscle tested and got a yes. Okay, next question, "How many unknown factors are there?"

Not a yes/no, so I asked, "Is there one unknown factor?" Tested. Got a yes. "Are there two unknown factors?" Tested. Got a yes. (Hang in there. I think reading it step by step could be helpful to everyone.) "Are there three unknown factors?" Tested. Got a yes. "Are there four unknown factors?" Tested. Got a no.

I've got the complete list: 14 daily issues, 7 intermittent symptoms and 3 unknown factors related to my health and balance. Now I need to know what to do next.

The whole point of this MAP/PIC session was to get help setting up my PIC Lists to be most effective, and manageable. So I asked, "Based on that issues list, which should I address with PIC?" Then I asked about and tested each issue/symptom one by one, starting with issues I had already been addressing. The PIC List for daily general balance stayed. The continuing PIC List for repairing from last year's concussion stayed. The other three issues I had been addressing were no longer needed. Instead, I tested to add one PIC List with the focus of, "Unknown Factor 1 as defined by my MAP team."

And for the first time ever, I kept my MAP coning open while doing my PIC List Testing. When I was done, it felt like an hour well spent.

One more side note: Notice that I didn't try to get my MAP team to do all the thinking. They won't do your thinking for you. Don't try. First I defined the issues and symptoms I was most concerned about, then asked my teammates for their input based on the direction I established.

I still don't know what "Factor 1" is, but I no longer have that feeling I'm ignoring a significant piece of my health puzzle. That's enough information for me, and I'm grateful for it.

If you are not working with PIC and just want to prioritize a list of issues you want to address with your MAP team, just open your MAP coning to begin, don't connect with PIC. Follow the above line of questioning to determine the first issue or symptom that you should address in MAP. Then ask your team if they want you to address any related issues or symptoms along with that. If yes, test your list to find out which one(s) your team views as related. Stop there and put the rest of your list aside. In your next regular MAP session, work with just what was identified as your first priority. You may need a series of sessions on that before you are ready to go back to your list and continue on.
