Lookers Tell Their Stories

"I’ve been trying to put my finger on the changes that have happened more than six years out from the first look at myself. I now somewhat understand John’s loss for words when trying to describe a life without fear. I have a taste of this life. The neurosis and anxiety have calmed down for some time now. As the filters and barriers come down I am less and less in the deadened inner world of the habits of fear. The world around me is enlivened and endlessly fascinating. There is a feeling of rightness, even when there is something wrong externally, and of course much is externally wrong with the world right now, as ever. This feeling of rightness is deep and pervasive from the surface to the bones of me."

"I came across Just One Look in June of this year. I tried the looking and, to be honest, I didn’t experience anything at all. But John had said in a video and in writing that that doesn’t matter. Whenever I felt inclined I did the looking again, until that stopped. Now I have started carrying out the Self-Directed Attention practice. John and Carla are so helpful. No fluffy fantasy promises. A simple practice that leads us to being fully functioning mature self-reliant humans."

"I had a funny image of how The Just One Look Method operates. It’s like when you cut off a chicken’s head, the chicken still runs around for awhile until it finally gives up and drops dead. Kind of macabre, but amusing nonetheless!"

"Pre-looking 6 years ago, I suffered with depression and anxiety for 30+ years, although I know it is predominantly psychological in nature it also notoriously causes physical symptoms in the body, 2 years into the looking this has left me and has never returned, this has also been the case with a condition I suffered with called fibromyalgia, tendinitis, psoriasis, which is an autoimmune disease, ibs, sciatica, chronic sinus problems, urine infections repeatedly, etc etc the list goes on, all gone, some ailments still remain, but even they are better than they were, and that's okay because my attitude towards health and illness is so much more saner than it ever was, I do what needs to be done in the moment. I have tapered off 4 prescription drugs as I don't need them any more, and am currently coming off my last one and then I'm done. The way I have come to see it, is that the fear-based negative thoughts affect and may even cause illness/disease to become chronic, the fearful thoughts constantly comment on how terrible this is, how much worse its getting, I can't cope blah blah blah. I think a diseased mind riddled with fear affects our body at a cellular level, how can it not? Looking at it from a scientific point of view, there's plenty of evidence out there that confirms this.. Mind and body are connected. My point is that once the fear starts to fall away, some illness/disease can disappear, although I agree its not always the case by any means, and that's important to realise, but it is possible!! I think once the looking is done the possibilities are endless..."

"I’ve had many physical ailments fall away in the last seven years, especially anxiety and depression-related ailments. The biggest thing is that I stopped being hyper focused on my health, mental and physical, and this allowed many things to naturally clear up. The uncovered intelligence of the body/mind also allows for better lifestyle choices that change health profile over the long run."

Book Reviews

Good Reinforcement

I'm new to this (about 7 months since looking), in the recovery stage and at kind of a stagnant point. This book was good in reinforcing John and Carla's ideas, seeing how others have done, and helping me hold on to the hope that it will work. I have not yet felt like being involved in the forum but have watched the videos over and over and now this has been a helpful addition and a good way to help a worthy cause. I would especially recommend this for those like me who are in the recovery process, not quite sure where they are and need a boost of encouragement.
