Instructions on How to Do the MOSTtm Speed Trace and a List of Actual Traces


Want to Take a Quick Walk Down Memory Lane and Come back Feeling Refreshed? That's what a simple Speed Trace will do for you. The Speed Trace technique Described Below was an Innovation by Bobby Matherne.
The MOSTtm stands for Matherne's Optimal Speed Trace, a name given to this fast trace process by Doyle Henderson. Bobby used the Basic Principles of Tracing developed by Doyle and Simplified them so that a Trace became Possible While some Unwanted Doyle was Present. A normal trace would take ten to fifteen minutes; a speed trace can be done in ten to fifteen seconds. After the Procedure for Doing a Speed Trace, You will Find a Synopsis of Actual Speed Traces. (The Names have been Omitted or Changed to Protect the Identity of the Person.) To Keep Up-to-date on Latest Changes, Subscribe to our Monthly Digest now.

If men and women of capacity refuse to trace their own bad doyles, they condemn themselves, as well as other people, to the punishment of living under the influence of bad doyles.

Purpose of this Speed Trace Page

It's the MOST(tm)! It's the MOST(tm)!
There are various descriptions of how to do the Speed Trace scattered through the website, and all of them work. The purpose of this page is for new visitors to to have a convenient place to refer to when they wish to do a Speed Trace. Beginners who know nothing at all about doyletics or PANACEA! should go to the Training Page first.

Why all the various ways to do a Speed Trace? Many of the other ways are methods that were created during my research, and, as such, they are more like historical documentation of the development path of the Speed Trace over the years. Thus the need for one page of Instructions that represent the Latest, the MOSTtm Up-to-Date Speed Trace.

If you find one of the other trace methods works for you, stay with it. After you've had success tracing a few times using 30 seconds between time marks as some of the earlier methods described, then try moving from one time mark to another without pausing as the method given below suggests. --- Bobby Matherne

How To Do a Speed Trace


The two elements one needs to do a successful speed trace is the holding the doyle and hitting the time mark. Like an automobile needs Fuel and Spark, a speed trace needs Hold and Mark. The doyle is the physical body state that you wish to eliminate from your life. A doyle is like a three-year-old kid tugging at his mom's apron while she's trying to arrange icing on a birthday cake or on his dad's shirt sleeve as he's lining up a pool shot. In neither case does the tugging increase the likelihood of a beautifully iced cake or a great carom shot. Doyles act like the two kids in our life, up until now. Up until Doyle Henderson, techniques of age regression to solve psychological problems had intermittent success. With the advent of doyletics, we have for the first time a science that provides the insight and techniques that will work in all situations.

Identifying the Doyle

Doyles are physical body states, and may consist of any or all of the following:
muscle tensions, feelings of movement, respiration rates, heart rates, itching sensations, and various states of operation of one's internal organs. Note that this means that doyles are the basic storage unit of most of the automated operations we perform on a daily basis: eating, swallowing, speaking, eye movements, coughing, yawning, stretching, grasping, relaxing, frowning, and smiling among other things.

To identify a doyle is simple: it's one of the above things that you don't want. Perhaps it's a tight stomach (like Bobby), a response to some foul-smelling water (like Valerie), an unsteadiness (like Leroy), a sound that evokes terror (like Sandy), a stage fright in front of TV cameras (like Lorena), a uncontrollable feeling of claustrophobia (like Olga), a case of the flu (like Magda), a dislike of peas (like Harold), an unexplainable feeling of confusion (like Olive), or a weird feeling of unpleasantness when you get a pedicure (like Daisy) .

Your next step is to evoke the doyle -- that means simply this: MAKE IT HAPPEN TO YOU NOW! If you'll read about Valerie you'll find that she drank a sip of the rotten egg-tasting water and the doyle it evoked was a simple stomach cramp. If you'll read about Sandy, you'll find that she arranged for a man to whistle in the darkened room where she was in order to evoke her terror for the purposes of a speed trace. Use your imagination -- this is your doyle, it's been a recurrent visitor to your body since before you were five-years-old, so you know it better than any other person. Like Althea below, even your mom didn't know you stored a doyle at that time. In fact, if your mom had noticed that you were upset and had talked to you at the time, you would NOT have stored a doyle at all. Talking to an upset child converts the doyle in real-time to a cognitive memory, and thus, the bad-feeling doyle is NEVER stored in the first place.

Now for the tricky part — simple, but tricky — you must do something you have never done before! You must HOLD ONTO TO THE DOYLE! What is it we usually do when some bad doyle comes up? We try to think of something else to get our mind off it! Of course, and we were all taught to do that. Solves the immediate problem just fine, doesn't it? And the doyle keeps coming back. OH! ! Yep, so, to prevent the doyle from ever coming back, you must hold onto to it for the extent of the Speed Trace. Since holding onto a strong doyle is extremely unpleasant, you can see why the faster one can do a speed trace, the easiest it is for them to do. Now for some of you, the doyle once evoked will stay around for the 60 seconds it will take you to get below five-years-old to complete the trace. If not, simple RE - EVOKE the DOYLE! Do again whatever you did to evoke it in the first place. Do it in the middle of the trace as necessary.

Like floating down the river on a raft, you must hold onto the raft until you reach your destination! If you fall off, you will need to start over when you locate the raft you lost. Many of you will have doyles that hold onto you, and these are the easiest ones to trace. Whenever they grab you, you trace them immediately. After you've done one or two simple traces, like a food dislike trace, you'll be able to do speed traces wherever you are, even in public gatherings, all you need is about 60 seconds without an interruption.

Using Time Marks

Time marks are simply the age you were at some earlier point in your lifetime. You go to a time mark by simply saying the age of the time mark as follows:

For time mark = fifty-years-old, say "I'm 50"
For time mark = fifteen-years-old, say "I'm 15"
For time mark = two-years-old, say "I'm 2"
For time mark = one-day-old, say "I'm one Day"
For time mark = one-day-before-birth, say "I'm minus 1 Day"
For time mark = X-years-old, say "I'm X"

That is ALL THAT IS REQUIRED for you to place your mind at a given age. Your brain takes over from there. You don't have to think of anything else at all. You can make it more complicated, but you can't make it simpler. You can interfere with it by thinking other thoughts, but you can't make it easier. You don't have to "remember" anything that happened to you at ANY of the TIME MARKS. You mostly can't anyway, not as a cognitive memory! The only dependable memories humans have before five-years-old is provided by doyles. Doylic memory is the only memory available until almost five-years-old.

Doing the Speed Trace

Now for the simplest part of all: you have arrived at this Step because you have evoked a doyle and you're holding onto it or it's holding onto you. You have only to say the time marks, going down from your current age to before five-years-old, and continuing until the doyle goes away, either fully or partially. If it goes away partially, call that a success and some time later trace the other portion of the doyle, if it ever comes back. Sometimes they won't. Go down ten years at a time if you're over 40-years-old and five years at a time if you're under 40-years-old. Always hit five-years-old, then go down one year at a time as shown below in the example for a 43-year-old: It's the MOST(tm)! It's the MOST(tm)!

"I'm 43, and I'm experiencing this doyle.
"I'm 33, and I'm experiencing this doyle.
"I'm 23, and I'm experiencing this doyle.
"I'm 13, and I'm experiencing this doyle.
"I'm 5, and I'm experiencing this doyle.

NOTE: from here on down, you say the time mark, and check to see if the doyle is still present. If no, you're done, you may stop the trace and ask the plausibility question immediately.

It's the MOST(tm)! It's the MOST(tm)!
"I'm 4, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 4, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 3, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 2, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 1, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 9 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 6 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 3 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 1 month, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm 1 day, am I experiencing this doyle?
It's the MOST(tm)! It's the MOST(tm)!
"I'm minus 1 day, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm minus 1 month, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm minus 2 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm minus 3 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm minus 4 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm minus 5 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm minus 6 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
"I'm minus 7 months, am I experiencing this doyle?
There is no need to ever go below seven months before birth because the brain structures in the limbic region of the brain were not sufficiently developed to store any doyles at that time, so far as we know. The most severe trauma that many people store as doyles happen during the day they were born -- birth trauma -- do yourself a big favor and skip over the day you were born. If you like, you can read about people who vomited and kicked holes in walls because they recovered some severe birth trauma. It is simply not necessary in addition to the obvious unpleasantness associated with the experience.

Asking the Plausibility Question

This is an optional part of the speed trace, but one that is quite popular. It allows some folks to learn how that particular doyle was stored in them at some age before five. It works because the brain has just completed creating a cognitive memory of that early event and it will feed up the cognitive memory to you that it just created from the meager information that was stored in doylic memory. Doyle removal does not come from recovering the original event, rather, it is the going before the original event while holding the doyle that works every time. Therapists who have used regression techniques have thought for a long time that it was essential to recover the original memory to achieve relief. And they probably have stains on their carpeting and patched holes in their walls to show for their beliefs. Once you've done a few speed traces, you will find out for yourself that recovering the original event is completely optional, and, most importantly, it is completely unnecessary to obtaining relief from some onerous doyle. But it has one salient function which makes it very important:

The MOST IMPORTANT function of the Plausibility Question or PQ is this:

No need to wait 2 or 3 weeks to find out if the doyle returns. You know immediately that a speed trace has worked because a speed trace transforms a doylic bodily memory into a COGNITIVE memory, and getting plausible explanation for the original event demonstrates immediately that you have done just that: COGNIZED a DOYLE!

Immediately upon completing a trace -- just as soon as that doyle disappears between two time marks, ask yourself silently the following question:

What's a Plausible Thing That Could Have Happened to Me at Age
(say here the Time Mark at which the doyle went away)?

Note: a good example of someone getting the original event in response to the Plausibility Question can be seen in the Speed Trace from the El Paso Interview of June 19, 2000 which is available in streaming video via Real Player. Just click on the Plausibility Question above to view the entire Speed Trace.

As soon as you finish asking or thinking the question, pay EXQUISITE ATTENTION to every thought, feeling, or any other sensory experience that comes to you. That will be your answer about the original event. The memory may be obvious, or it may be but a dark image, some vague feeling, or some indistinct sound that makes sense only to you. And the making sense may progress over days and weeks to come. It's your memory, only you can make sense out of it.

Samples of Actual Speed Traces

These are actual trace histories of people I have directly assisted. Their names and some of the details not essential to the trace history have been changed to protect their identity. These are short synopses of a wide variety of traces to help new tracers to understand what might constitute a traceable doyle. My motto is:


I emphasize to new tracers that they will soon find that it is easier to do a trace than to call up some friend and ask, "Do you think this can be traced?" The best way to ask that question, rightly understood, is to ask it of your body by doing a trace. If the doyle goes away, your anwer is yes. If it doesn't, the body state you were tracing may have been a current body state, not a re-created body state from your childhood before five (a doyle).

Sam's Strong Distaste for Beets — A Vehement Food Dislike!

Sam hated beets with a passion! Just to mention the word beets caused him to get nauseous in the throat and stomach area. His face wrinkled up and he had to swallow in order to keep from vomiting. I led him through the speed trace, and, at 3-years-old, the doyles went away. I could see his face smooth out immediately. When I suggested that he ask himself the plausibility question, he remembered a time when he got sick on beet juice when he was three. The next day his mom cooked beets while I was over there. We were eating on the couch together, and I offered him a slice of a beet. He hesitated for a few moments, and then he ate it. I heard from his mom that the next day when she made carrot and beet juice she asked him if he wanted some after she put in the beets, and he said, "Go ahead -- I'll try it with the beets." The first glass he waited to drink until after the meal, but now she tells me that Sam drinks it right away ever since.

Marlene's Grapefruit -- a Lifelong Food Dislike

Marlene, who had hated grapefruit in any form, juice or sectioned, came to one of my seminars. During group traces I generally recommend that folks do a food dislike trace, because it is usually easy to evoke or remember the food dislike, and it's easy for them to test and confirm later that the trace worked. With Marlene, I happened to have a half grapefruit ready for the test immediately after the session. What happened amazed me. After the group trace was over, when I asked if Marlene had anything to report, she said that she saw herself being fed fruit cocktail at 3-yrs-old in a nursery school every day. At 60 she'd never eaten grapefruit before.

When the seminar was on a break, I got a half of grapefruit out of the refrigerator, took a section in a spoon, and offered it to her. She took it carefully, placed it in her mouth, ate it, smiled, and then, in a flash, she grabbed the rest of the grapefruit out of my hand and devoured it in front of me.

Marlene went from a food dislike for grapefruit to a strong like in the time it took her to eat one spoonful of grapefruit. This is the exception rather than the rule, so far as my experience to date has informed me. Often people progress from food dislike, to neutral, to a weak "like," and maybe, after repeated eatings to a full-fledged "like."

Meg's Acrophobia

One night on a high porch about ten feet above the ground, I was explaining to Meg about doyletics. She asked how the trace works, so I suggested she do a trace. She said she had acrophobia, or a fear of heights, and experienced great difficulty in the mountains, etc. There was no railing on the porch so I suggested that she evoke the doyle by standing near the edge of the porch. She did so. I took her through a very fast speed trace, from her current age of 43 down to 2 years old, at which point it was obvious that her doyle had dissolved. I motioned for us to walk back and sit down, and as we did she kept looking back down over the edge of the porch with a big smile on her face, as if to say, "I can't believe it's gone!"

Daisy's Pedicure Discomfort

In an afternoon session, I explained doyletics and led Daisy in a trace about some yucky feeling she gets when she has a pedicure. She has them done from time to time in spite of the discomfort it causes. This is an example of how doyletics suggests simple, easy ways to remove discomforts that one would not even think of as optional, up until now. She did a quick, clean trace and her doyle went away between time marks 3 and 2. I suggested that she ask herself the Plausibility Question and she got that the original event was walking on a patch of ground near a tree in her back yard. I'll add a follow-up here after I get a report from her once she has her next pedicure.

Sophia's Language Discomfort

Note: the following post came from a new user of doyletics. Used with permission.

I have a friend who is an English teacher, but who spoke much better Spanish than English. She felt very self-conscious about speaking English, and when we talked, she seemed to lose most of the conversation just out of pure nerves. I led her in a doyle trace, and I've been observing since then, that, even when I talk fast in English, she doesn't shy away, but actually understands me on the first try. When we go for a walk, I notice she talks in English- something she hasn't done before.

Followup, a week later:
Sophia is going totally wild and now has brought her Italian out of the closet too! I knew she had taken lots of Italian in school and enjoyed it but could never get her to help me brush up on it.

Olga's ClaustrophobiaDiscomfort

In the same session, Mary did a trace of her claustrophobia – being out of control was a big component – she used as a trigger getting into a plane and feeling terible when the door closed. Her original event was between time marks 2 and 1. When she asked herself the Plausibility Question, she got that the original event was her brother putting a blanket over her and trying to suffocate her at age one-year-old. This has plagued ever since, up until now.

Lorena's Two Traces: Stage Fright and Roller Coaster Discomfort

Note: I use Lorena's actual name, as she was a volunteer for the El Paso TV interview. This is my record on what happened during the taping. The complete Roller Coaster trace is available for viewing using Real Player at: View Lorena's Roller Coaster Speed Trace. You may have to download Real Player first. The trace is about 8 Mbytes long and the download about 5 Mbytes. Thanks to Lorena Castro for volunteering, and to Dr. Roméo Di Benedetto for the great interview, and especially to Daniel Matt of the Center for Instructional Television for giving us permission to show this demo of a live speed trace on the website.

I took a break after the first interview and saw Lorena had arrived. When I returned three chairs were in place, and Lorena and I sat in them waiting to be wired with microphones. I was placed in the middle, Lorena to my left, and Roméo to my right. We had a couple of moments before the taping was to start and Roméo wasn't in place yet, so I asked Lorena, "What would you like to trace?" She had been present for the lecture and demonstration earlier that morning and understood what a doyle is and had done a trace earlier.
She said, "I have this problem when I ride on a roller coaster. My friends coax me into going with them and I get horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach, plus this feeling moving up to my throat." She gestured with her hands up to her throat.
"Fine, that should make a good trace subject."
Then she said, "I'm very nervous with all those cameras on me."
"Would you like to trace that now or during the interview?"
"On-camera would be soon enough," she said with a smile. By my choice of words, I had presupposed that she was going to trace it and left the choice of the time to her. I decided to do the nervousness trace first because she'll then feel much more comfortable for the remainder of the interview.
"You know," I said, "if you do that trace, it might lead to a career for you as a news TV anchor!" She smiled – a smile that seemed to say that was a little far-fetched, up until now.

Lorena's Two Live Traces:

Roméo began the second half-hour interview with a superb summary of doyletics and then introduced me. I said a few words, and then turned to Lorena. We immediately began the "stage-fright-on-camera-doyle" trace. For this trace there was no need to evoke the doyle, as it was clearly present and ready to trace. This allowed me to focus on the tracing process and save the evoking of the doyle for the second trace. Lorena was 23-years-old, so I led her through these ages: 23, 17, 12, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2 . . . when I said 3, she opened her eyes and said, "I'm no longer experiencing this doyle." Just to be sure, I had her go down one more time mark to 3. Same response.There was a noticeable change in her expression and her overall body state was congruent with her words. She was already more relaxed and at ease. In fact, I noticed that for the rest of the interview with her, it was as though the TV cameras had disappeared. She was talking to me directly as if no one else were in the room. For TV anchors, I suspect that is also true, that they see their audience in their living rooms and talk to them as though the TV cameras were not present at all.

Note on Plausibility Question. She didn't have an answer when I asked her, "What's a plausible thing that could have happened to you when you were two-years-old that could have led to this doyle being stored? She couldn't think of anything -- which makes sense, since the original event happened when she was three, not two! It was between time marks 4 and 3 that the doyle went away. But, just to be certain the doyle was completely gone, I had moved her back another step to time mark 2. After we had talked awhile, I got around to asking the plausibility question, and, in the meantime, I'd forgotten which time mark it was, so I asked her, and she said 3 and 2, which was the last ones we did, but NOT the two marks during which the doyle went away. So when I asked her, "What's a plausible thing could have happened to you at 2 that could have led to this doyle being stored?" there was NO event at two that led to her stage fright on TV doyles being stored! That's why she was unable to come up with an answer! I should have asked her,

"What's a plausible thing could have happened to you at 3 that could have led to this doyle being stored?"

Before the interview I had told Nacho, the producer, that I wanted the cameras focused in on her face during the two traces and he managed that quite well. Roméo noticed her wringing her hands during the second trace and was unable to get Nacho to move the camera from her face. When Lorena finished that first trace, she opened her eyes wide and Roméo and I asked how she felt. "Great!" she said with enthusiasm.

Immediately we proceeded with the second trace. For this one, I had to evoke the roller coaster doyle. Asked her what she experienced in her body so viewers could relate to what she was doing. It will be interesting to find if folks in the audience for the tape when it is broadcast suddenly find themselves doing a roller coaster fear doyle trace along with Lorena. For the ride down the roller coaster, I chose the same time marks as before: 23, 17, 12, 7, 5, 4, 3, 2, . . . There was a long pause at 2 as she cleared the doyle, but remained on the roller coaster with her eyes closed. I suggested that she continue the ride all the way to the very end of the roller coaster track when it will finally glide to a stop and she'll get out. At that point her eyes finally opened. Once more an excellent trace! Good work, Lorena! Clearly you've done two real traces, live on tape for the entire world to see until the end of time.

July 29, 2000 Feedback from Lorena re Rollercoaster Trace

Today I received a report from Dr. DiBenedetto that she's mentioned to him that she has gone on a roller coaster ride and enjoyed it!

Althea's Fear of Scorpions

After a group trace one day Althea said she had traced her fear of scorpions.
"Did it go away?" I asked her.
"Yes! She said. "I was stung by a scorpion at age three."
I couldn't tell if she already knew that as a fact, so I asked her, "Did you know that already?"
"No," she said, "not until I finished the trace and asked the plausibility question, 'What's a plausible thing that could have happened to me at age 3?' "
"What happened?"
"I saw herself being stung by a scorpion."
Althea had never before had a cognitive memory of that event, masked as it was by childhood amnesia. This simple doyle trace had uncovered that event, converted it into a cognitive memory, and removed her fear of scorpions. She could thenceforth deal with scorpions as any non-fearful adult would.

After getting this information from Althea, I suspected that her mother Martha had not heard what Althea had said to me in the back of the room. Althea had brought her mother along because she had been unable to find a sitter for her. At the beginning of the session Althea had explained that Martha would not participate in the session. It occurred to me that Martha might remember something so significant in her child's life as a scorpion bite at three, so I moved over and crouched down so I could look Martha in the eyes to talk to her. I had begun to talk to her before I approached, and she didn't hear a word I said to her until I looked her straight in the eyes. (That confirmed for me that Martha had not heard her daughter's explanation of the trace seconds before. Althea was in the far back of the room out of Martha's sight.)

I said intently, "Martha, your daughter Althea, at age 3 -- was she stung by a scorpion?"

Suddenly her eyes lit up, her left arm shook like an electric pulse went through it and she said, "YES! At three she was stung by a scorpion! I'd forgotten all about that!"

Martha had just recovered a memory from a long 51 years ago or so. Martha's recollection confirmed that Althea had recovered an actual event that had happened to her as a child, an event that, unfortunately, had been stored as a doyle. That doyle was re-triggered whenever she saw a scorpion, which was a daily event in the area where she lived at the time of the trace.

Magda's Flu Trace

One day I was calling some people to whom I had sent brochures for the first doyletics seminar. I had not heard back from. Magda (not her real name), and she was someone I knew would want to come. When I got her on the phone she sounded terrible -- her voice was hoarse and she sounded very weak. She said that she was sick with the flu. Her fever was starting to break, so I asked her to describe her current symptoms. The most prominent one was weakness and the shakes.

I suggested we do a speed trace over the phone. I knew that she was 47 so I led her back to 42, 32, 22( she talked about her marriage problems), 12 ( she mentioned her tonsillectomy, the ether mask and being strapped to the table), 5-years-old, 4-years-old (I heard heavy sobbing and I finally asked her what's happening: "Bad time for my mom and dad -- they they broke up, lots of upsetness when I was four" then she said, "Bobby, I'm really feeling sick." I calmly told her to go to 3-years-old, and within 30 seconds she had stabilized again. After confirming that I asked, "And your physical symptoms, the weakness and shaking?" "Gone!" she said emphatically.
Within a few minutes as we talked about other things she kept getting stronger. The weakness and shaking that had laid her low was gone, and for good.
I think she would have kissed Doyle Henderson, had he been available! Without his technology I would have never thought that there was anything I could do for her flu, especially over the phone.
This trace history gives us important data about the connection of doyles and sicknesses. I had told Magda before we started the trace that the sickness doyles are like lead weights that get loaded onto you whenever some malaise triggers a doyle and causes your body to re-create some illness-related doyles. When that happens, you not only have the sickness, but in addition you have these heavy lead weights to carry around. A simple speed trace in a short 30 seconds can eliminate the lead weights so your body can easily throw off the rest of the illness. And the elimination of the lead weights is permanent. There was no doubt in my mind that she accessed the original doylic storage event at four-years-old and then went before the event to create a cognitive memory of it. She could see, hear, feel her parents yelling and screaming and she feel as bad as she did during the original event, until she went to three-years-old, at which time she felt immediate relief.
One of the problems with some forms of psychotherapy is that they regress the person to the original event and allow them to recreate all the bad feelings over and over, but by never going before the event, the feelings are just as strong the next time the patient goes to the same event, plus the doyles remain to return outside of therapy.

Harold: Food Dislike of Peas, Fear of Authority, and Red-faced Embarrassment

Note: These results were reported to Doyle in an email in early 1999, and this account is published with Harold's explicit permission. His identity has been changed and some of the details edited for the website. His results were obtained with the PANACEA! software kit that Doyle has sold for years and is still available at his website. Especially note: Harold's successes followed on doing a food dislike as his very first doyle trace.


I have been studying self help books for 30 years. NLP seemed to be the best method but it was difficult to learn with no training. With my new understanding of emotions I see why NLP will not cure automatic body responses, but just make other responses available.

I have disliked peas for as long as I can remember; gagging and tight stomach. I traced it back and was surprised what I learned about my life. I like peas now!!!!! It works. Thank you for sharing PANACEA! with the world.

My second tracing was a mental block when someone of authority would ask me a question. I often wondered why when I was asked a question my mind would go blank. Tracing showed it was from when an older neighbor would force me to perform fellatio on him. When I finally rebelled I was left with an automatic refusal to submit to anyone older than me. Tracing seems to have helped, but I am not positive yet.

My next work will be with embarrassment: my face turns beet red when I speak in front of more than 2 or 3 people. I must give presentations with my new job. Well, I haven't tested it yet but multiple traces have revealed many layers of red-faced embarrassment. Lots of surprises. It works. Thank you for sharing PANACEA! with me.

Followup Email a week or two later from Harold:

I am happy to report that during my last presentation at work I did not become embarrassed or turn red in any way. I thought I would have to live with red-faced embarrassment for the rest of my life. I am elated with feelings of freedom, freedom to express myself for the first time in my life. Now I know I can fix just about any automatic response if I wish to.

You have confirmed some ideas for me about how we are connected with the universe and time. Thank you again for sharing PANACEA! with the world.

Migraine Headaches -- Two Trace Histories

In two separate seminars I did group traces during which one participant traced her migraine headache. In neither case had I instructed the participants to attempt to trace migraines. My instruction in seminars is for first timers to trace a food dislike because it is so easy to confirm that something happened. But in one case the gal had the onset of a migraine and in the other case her migraine headache was already underway.

Trace History 1) The young woman was doing a trace with the symptoms of the beginning of a migraine headache. Suddenly while tracing she blurted out, "OOH!" After everyone had finished their traces I asked her what happened. She said, "I saw myself at 4-years-old running through my house screaming with my hands on my ears as the noon day siren wailed outside of our house by the Army Base." When she got to 3-years-old, the doyle went away, and she hasn't had a migraine headache since, so far as I know.

Trace History 2) This was an older woman in her upper fifties. In a group trace I was leading she was supposed to be doing a food dislike trace, but because her head was hurting her, she traced her migraine headache. She got a vivid image of herself at 4-years-old holding her mother's hand as they watched the house across the street burn down! Prior to that trace, a friend of hers at the seminar later related me, she had had migraines so frequently and severe that she thought that she had a brain tumor. I talked to her two years after the trace and she reported to me that she has had no migraine headaches since.

August 10, 2000 Update in her own words: "Yes, I have been free of migraines. I get maybe a bad headache occasionally, but I only have to take a tylenol and lie down with a cold pack and I usually find relief. Before I was seeing a neurosurgeon and taking strong migraine medication. Thanks a million for all you did for me. I know God has Blessed you in so many ways, and I pray that He will continue to Bless You and Your Family."

Claustrophobia Doyle Trace

Here's a report of a man who helped his wife to trace a claustrophobia that kept her from doing her best horseback riding while in an enclosed arena. Outside riding she did fine, but inside she had problems, up until now. Here's the husband's words, but their identity has been changed.
My wife Mary and I were trying to think of a good doyle to target for her very first speed trace. Later that afternoon she started to worry about her next dressage (horse riding) lesson in an indoor arena (menage). Outdoors is no problem, but indoors, she gets very claustrophic and naturally the horse picks up on her anxiety and amplifies it making the ride fairly nerve racking and limiting.

To invoke her claustrophobia doyle, I suggested we lock her in a darkened wardrobe and see if it triggered her anxiety. I locked her in half expecting her to start gigling, but 30 seconds later she told me through the door that her chest was very tight and she was experiencing the same anxiety she would often get in the enclosed arena. She said it was like a huge weight on her chest forcing her to breathe very shallowly.

I guided her through the trace and she felt an incredible release in her breathing when she got down to 4 years old. I was optimistic about the result but wanted to verify the impact by seeing how she felt when next in the enclosed arena.

Today, just over a week later, Mary had a lesson in the enclosed arena. For the first time ever, she was able to relax and enjoy her ride using the full surface area and cantering near the walls.

She is totally convinced that the speed trace was responsible for this shift and is very grateful for knowledge of the technique.

Unconscious Doyle Traces

In this final section I want to include several examples of doyle traces that are done unconsciously. By that I mean simply that no formal procedure was followed and yet someone removed a doyle by managing to slide back before the original event while holding a doyle and the doyle disappeared for good. Here's my operational definition of unconscious which contains no Freudian or Jungian jargon:

You are unconscious of X when X happens without X registering with you that it occurred at the time it happened.

If someone asked you if X occured, that might be enough to bring it into your awareness, but you were unaware before then. I don't posit some amorphous organ called the Unconscious in a person, as I consider that to be an unnecessary additional hypothesis. But I will occasionally talk as though there is, and when I do, I only use the word for convenience, like we use Man in the Moon to refer to a pattern on the surface of the moon.

Pill Swallowing Difficulty

This one involved my 80-year-old mother. She had severe arthritis but remained active with her sewing and quilting projects. Then one week she was unable to sew, and her feet began to swell and hurt. She was unable to walk and unable to keep busy knitting or quilting with her hand, in short, her life became sheer misery. She went to her doctor and discovered that she contracted gout and in combination with that a case of adult-onset diabetes due to her being overweight. She got on a diet, took the gout pills, and soon she was able to begin sewing and walking again. However, she suddenly found herself having to take about a dozen pills a day, and complained that she was unable to take more than one pill at a time because she had severe difficulties swallowing. It took her a very long time for her to take her pills and she was very uncomfortable doing it. At one point we took her to have barium X-rays to determine the cause of the swallowing difficulty. The X-rays showed no problem.
Immediately this sounded to me like a doyle that could be traced, but I was at a loss about how to proceed. At that time, I hadn't worked out the simple 30-second speed trace, and my speed trace at that time involved progressive relaxation and took about 30 minutes. I didn't figure my mom would sit still for that. One day while I was working on this, I was driving Dad to get the shunt removed from his recent kidney stone removal operation. On the way to the hospital, I told him about Doyle's theory. Since Mom can hear well and he can't, this was an ideal time to talk to him, when I could talk loud enough for him to hear since Mom was in a different car with my sister. I worked up to telling him about Doyle's experience with doing the speed trace on swallowing pills and then he told me a most interesting thing. My ears perked up immediately as I listened to the following story:
"When Annette was three, she was sucking on a sliver of ice and it slipped down her throat, only to become lodged in her throat, blocking her breathing passage. She had begun to turn blue when an uncle picked her up, turned her upside down, and patted her back to dislodge the ice." It must have been a frightening experience to her, and her throat muscles must have been contricting like crazy. And, since they held her upside down, there's a good chance that she was below five and the throat constriction got stored as doylic memory.
I knew immediately that the ice episode was the likely original event of the storage of the pill-swallowing problem doyle. But I still didn't know how to proceed. A couple of days later, I was driving my mom to her sister's house about an hour away, and I asked her about her pill-swallowing problem, something like, "Are you still having difficulty swallowing pills?" and she said, "Yes." Then I asked her if she remembered the ice swallowing episode and she said, "Yes, vaguely. It happened when I was about three or four." Apparently she had been told about it later just as someone had told my dad who didn't even meet Mom till she was eighteen-years-old.
That's all we talked about, as I still didn't have a clue as to how to proceed with a trace with Mom. The upshot was that thereafter she didn't have any more problem swallowing her pills! Apparently she did an unconscious doyle trace when I mentioned the ice swallowing episode. I had first evoked the pill-swallowing doyle by mentioning it. Then I mentioned the ice-swallowing episode, she went immediately to it while holding the doyle, converted the episode into a cognitive event, and the doyle then disappeared from her life.

Deep Depression

In this episode of an unconscious doyle trace, a father listened to his daughter relate a dream that contained an episode that really happened to her at age 3, so he tells her that the events in her dream had really happened to her. This dream occurred after her therapist had helped her to understand that she processes her emotions in her body. The vivid dream she had was the original event during which the doyle was stored in her body. When her father tells her this, the daughter undergoes, in effect, an unconscious doyle trace, and the depression no longer returns to her as a doyle, as it has been converted into a cognitive memory.
Is it possible that the doyle trace happened when she had the dream? Yes, it is possible, but two aspects are required to be present for a doyle trace: 1) the doyle must be present 2) one must go back to/before the original event. As she had the dream, her brain stored the dream events as a cognitive event, a process that would not have impacted her doyle stored during the original event, unless she were also experiencing the doyle while in her dream. When her father told her that her dream was an accurate presentation of a real event, her doyle of depression was likely still present [I have no information about her state at the time, so this is speculation.]. She had the doyle present and got the original event -- thus the two aspects for a successful doyle trace were present. [See Basic Theory for details on these two aspects: .]
The words below are those of her father in an email to me:

I want to thank you for the Doyletics information. This could not have come at a more critical time...naturally. I have found how quickly it works for me and have been able to share this with family and friends. My daughter has been in a deep depression and gone into therapy recently. She apparently has an excellent therapist who has done some work with her on how she processes her emotions and discovered that she processes in the body. She told me shortly after coming to know this that she had a very vivid dream. As she described the dream I flashed back to an event that exactly corresponded to her dream. I told her that she had witnessed this experience at age 3. She is really interested in this Doyle technique now and for the first time in 12 years or more is truly excited and happy to know herself. Sorry, got off on a babble there, but it was so amazing for me to witness her witnessing.

Kinesthetic Doyle Trace Example: Del's Knee Problem

Now here's a story about a completely kinesthetic and unconscious doyle trace that happened in 1981. Del and I had been married about 3 years and known each other four years. In all the time I knew her, she had had problems with her knees. Plus Marcie Street (our previous house in Metairie across the river) had our bedroom upstairs. Every time she walked up the stairs her knees hurt -- sometimes I could see visible winces. I was almost to the point of taking her to an orthopedic specialist, which would have probably meant surgery. It was that bad. I'd feel her knee and there seemed to be some ligaments out of alignment. I'm no expert on knees, but I could see her react when I'd manipulate parts of her knee.

We were leading an Agape Lab in Lafayette, and a local chiropracter named Richard was one of the participants. Richard knew kinesiology, and offered to check out her knee at my prodding. He spent an hour and a half on the floor working on her. The work consisted of what he calls releasing energy as he manipulated the body at two places at the same time. I remember him kneeling next to her as she lay on her side -- he stretched her leg, breathed, and then moved on. This and similar procedures went on interminably. After each move, he tested if the problem had alleviated, and then made another move.
When he finished Del got up and her knees were both fine. And she never has had a problem with them ever again. We lived seven more years in Marcie and I marveled every time she walked up those stairs and blessed Richard for his time, patience, and skill.
What came to me this morning was that Richard was doing a completely kinesthetic and unconscious doyle trace. By manipulating the pertinent muscles while Del was in a relaxed state, he was inducing age regression automatically without even mentioning ages. She would go back to the times triggered by the doyles he was activating in her amgydala/limbic region.
What's important is that the stupendous results Richard achieved with Del can be achieved by others by the speed trace. [Note the similarity of this approach by Richard to the approach used by Robert Redford in his movie, The Horse Whisperer.]

Completely Unconscious Doyle Trace Found during 1997 Internet Search for "Amygdala":

Here's the closest I'd found in 1997 to someone suggesting a type of doyle trace. They even identify the amygdala as the repository of emotional memories. These guys have stumbled onto something similar to a speed trace erase. I was not able to find any other details on how they exactly suggest that one do what they're describing below.

"One method to click the amygdala forward is self-therapy. Merely remove the inhibitors which prevent your natural genetic evolution. These inhibitors are repressed child trauma memories. (What negative childhood memory do you now recall to see how it inhibited your total future adult life?) Each such entropy is released via an exercise of acting-out and discharging the negative energy---via "self trauma drama."
[Mind Movie Re-Write in Frontal LobesHandbook-N.S.]
You re-live, DOMINATE and control the bad episode so that it converted into a good , growing, loving memory.
This converts your stored entropy into free-flowing, positive energy(!!) to use as you like.
The free energy is guided into the front part of each amygdala.
They click forward.

Transcendence implodes...WHHHEEEEE!!!

All people on this planet now can learn scientific self brain-control.
Mass love.
Warless Earth.

Shall we start with you?"

Sounds to me like they were not sure what they'd found. Like a kid with dynamite sticks, they just know "it goes BANG!".
