This is a simple visualization technique used in Rub & Yawn. The six directions here are above, below, to the right, to the left, in front, behind.

On each above/below/etc step, one simply tries to place the topic above/below/etc one's body as best one can. This is easy to do with an uncharged topic, but hard to do with a hot one.

These steps repeat Above ... Below ... Right ... Left ... Front ... Back ... Above ... etc for as long as appropriate.


Harmful subtle energy connected to a topic or incident, that is discharged in running a process. This discharge is often seen as yawns or sighs or other bodily discharges. When something has been discharged the memories will remain but they will no longer be unpleasant.


The entire aim of Rub & Yawn and its associated procedures (YawnMachine, PaulsRobot etc) is to release the charge stored in the space of the body and about a meter around it in the associated subtle energy fields there. The subtle energy effects are not readily seen, but the physical manifestations (shutting down or discharges or neither) are fairly obvious and can be worked with as excellent indications of what to do next.


A process is flat when there is no more change occurring, no more charge coming off.

Flow 1

Thing happening generally, or someone doing something to you. Examples: you catch the flu; you win the lottery; your aunt kisses you on the cheek; someone slaps your face.

Flow 2

You do something to another. Examples: you kiss your aunt on the cheek; you kick a cat; you set fire to a waste basket; you hit someone.

Flow 3

Another or others doing something to themselves or others. Examples: A cat plays with a mouse; a young girl harms herself; Mexico invades Texas.

Flow 0

You do something to yourself. Examples: You eat far too much and feel sick; you trip over and break a leg.


A topic you address with Rub & Yawn, like "Sally" or "the events of 1950-1959" or "my childhood home." It is important that an item is selected by you and not by someone else, and it is something you are personally interested in addressing.


Sometimes handling some specific charge works better when the person concentrates their attention into a particular area of the body or space around them, as if the charge were "owned" there. The more familiar alternative is to address some charge generally.

Residual discharges

Yawns or other discharges that sometimes come off at the beginning of a Rub & Yawn session, formal or informal, that are not connected to any specific topic. These would occur irrespective of whatever one's attention is on.

Rub & Yawn

Contains three parts:

  • vigorous rubbing of the body to energize it, and
  • visualization in various specified ways of one's charged topic, resulting in
  • yawns or other clearly visible physical discharges showing harmful energy being dissipated.

(Rub & Yawn) Session

Period of time with a start and an end in which the user manipulates and discharges mental images.


In good shape for a session. Ideally, this means be well-rested, well-fed, not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, willing and able to read and follow the instructions, and have no distractions, enough time for the session, and nothing else likely to pull you out of session. There is a sliding scale here, with session success being more/less likely as one's sessionability increases/decreases.

Shutting down

Going foggy, blanking out, losing focus, even slightly, as a result of some charge getting triggered. It is resolved easily by vigorous Rub & Yawn as long as one catches it in time. If not, it is easy to go to sleep, wasting valuable minutes of session time or life. It happens in life too, not just sessions, and the same remedy works in life.

Subtle energy

High-frequency energies of various kinds that make up the extended anatomy of a person (chakras, meridians, auric fields etc). The charge associated with the sensations, emotions and thoughts contained in a person's baggage is also made up of subtle energy.


(Subjective Units of Distress/Disturbance Scale) A standard 0-10 negative scale for a client to rate her topic both before and after a session.


(Subjective Units of Session Harmony and Insight) A new 0-10 positive scale for a client to rate her condition and ability or inability to find anything negative now to continue the session on.


The charged subject of a session, very personal to the individual, selected by the user and not from a provided list. General suggestions may be made, like Relationship trouble? but it is the user who selects his actual topic of Lyn Rizzergard next door.


Cause a topic to go from a dormant state to an active one. Cause the charge from a topic to suddenly become active and impinge on a person, so that he will experience the downscale sensations, emotions and thoughts contained in this piece of "baggage" and tend to "act out" its content. In more advanced PaulsRobot work one triggers things selectively and deliberately so that the topics in question can be discharged and so not be available to be triggered in the future. Life triggers topics randomly.
