“What seemed like a mountain…”

T.D. Is a new client who had invested time and money in other paradigms known to many of us before arriving with me in his seeking relief from some longstanding issues. Yesterday TD had his first session with me, and this morning he sent me this message:

“I just wanted to say that the results of our first session far exceeded my expectations. What seemed like a mountain has now become a hill.” (TD, April 2021).

Thank you, my new friend, this is what I do, and this is what I’m here for.

Love, Dex


AJ: “…very healing, insightful and restorative.  I continue to learn and benefit with Dexter from his methods and kind, mindful presence.”

AJ is one of my clients currently engaged in both counseling sessions and mentoring as a practitioner with me. He has this to share:
“The sessions that I have experienced with Dexter Gelfand have been very healing, insightful and restorative.  I continue to learn and benefit with Dexter from his methods and kind, mindful presence.  Indeed, I have explored many therapeutic approaches and appreciate the depth of knowledge and understanding Dexter has based on decades of research and helping clients to change.  I am looking forward to continuing to learn with Dex.”

“I’m feeling a difference day by day following the sessions with you”

S.G. has begun sessions with me, as well as training with me as a practitioner, and shared this message:
Hi Dex,
Thank you for the additional materials and for the great work you do.
I feel really good today and feeling a difference day by day following the sessions with you.
May you and your life be blessed!
Thank you, S.G.

“Learning and running the Spiritual Digestion technique has been one of the largest wins I’ve ever had”

Quite a few people have been through the Scientology experience, taking what they could and then distancing from all the unfortunate cultish trappings and the disappointments of what didn’t work out as hoped or expected.
Many of these found Alan Walter’s Knowledgism a step up, with less of a cult enforcement environment, and more advanced processes.
Then, in turn, quite a few of these seekers then found their way to therapeutic spiritual counseling and sessions with Dex, having their goals fulfilled and being happily impressed with the insights, the effectiveness and the simplicity of the work.
G.P. is one such participant. Besides his forays into those paradigms as a participant, he’s also been an experienced practitioner of Knowledgism.  G.P. has come to me to be trained and mentored in therapeutic spiritual counseling. We have recently begun his training, and this is what G.P. has to say:
“Learning and running the Spiritual Digestion technique has been one of the largest wins I’ve ever had, not a win from running something specific, but a win from what it means for my future having gained this ability to honor my Spiritual Compass and digest what comes to view, as Dex said, a future of accepting life instead of resisting it.
I understood the fact that there are no random thoughts whenever I am addressing anything. This opened the door to resolving feelings and conditions in my life that I hadn’t been able to resolve with other approaches, especially because I was given the freedom to express whatever my spiritual compass came with, instead of being bogged down with questions from a script, filled with must’s and supposed to’s or constrained by a specific philosophy.
Using the spiritual digestion technique, my partner and I have successfully handled things that in our previous experiences would have been considered “too high level” for us, making for fear to take these things on. We decided to ditch those characterizations, and now we decide for ourselves what we can handle. And the Spiritual Compass never fails to present the precise thing that is there for us to resolve and thus upgrade our life.
There is incredible freedom in this approach and also a BIG increase in my sovereignty, as the one doing most of the job is ME, I just need someone whom I can sit down with, and who can give me space and safety to voice my thoughts and feelings as they come, and guide when necessary to resolve whatever has come up. It’s fun and what you learn about yourself by doing it is invaluable.
A very unique feature about this approach is that you don’t need to subscribe to a whole philosophy or system to be able to benefit from it, it can be united with anything you are doing or with any system you already work with. Being someone who has studied many systems or philosophies, I can say that not many techniques have this feature.
I hope many others will take the opportunity to benefit from this.

Thank you Dexter!”

This is what happened in Sandra’s free initial session.

Sometimes a colleague in the self-improvement/spiritual enlightenment/advancement field invites me to be the speaker for a program or seminar they host. This is how Sandra found me. She took advantage of my standing offer to grant everyone a free sample session with me. We addressed what was for her at that time the most prominent issue she’d been struggling with in her life in that session with great success.

The next day, Sandra was moved to send me a message about her first session experience with me:

“It was great working with you yesterday, I feel like I really handled my indecision on rightness and wrongness, and my refusal to accept opinions and actions that I deem are not right for me. I’m looking forward to working with you more!

“I feel light sensations, deep calm, and immense gratitude!”

JJ has spent decades engaged in spiritual practices that some of you may be familiar with. He had this to share after his most recent session with me:

Dex, I’m in awe of your depth and clarity, your spiritual intuitive know-how! Absolutely brilliant! I feel light sensations, deep calm, and immense gratitude! Thanks, Dex!

“I am recovered”

Life energy goes through various shocks of smaller or bigger magnitude. Life energy diminishes with every such experience. It becomes drag. I was going through that phase of life when I contacted Dexter.
After going through the process of recovering myself from underneath of layers of such shocks. I am recovered.
Life energy regained and it is stable. I will like to dive in again and again to get more out of the “experience” called “life time”.
Thank you Dexter for helping me give a fresh look and enhancing my ability to experience more and more.


“I deeply appreciate the transformation that has happened”

Hi Dex
The focus of my recent sessions with you has been to handle the unconscious replication of an identity that has been affecting all aspects of my life, particularly my relationships. I was able to realize that this identity was self envisioned under the guise of keeping me safe. With your guidance, I permeated this identity at the point I originally created it. As I did this, I watched the identity dissolve until there was only a residue of the energy signature remaining. Had I been doing this alone, I would have stopped at this point, believing it would continue to unfold to completion. You encouraged me to keep permeating. Holding this focus, I observed the energy signature shear off into gold particles and beams of gold light and come into my body. Just allowing it to happen, I noticed my heart expand and turn gold. As this continued my awareness expanded effortlessly. There were no edges to my awareness. I felt very serene and joyful, connected to everything, everywhere. In that moment I connected to my core serenity. Very beautiful 🙂  I realized that this presence is always there, always available. Separation is an illusion. It also takes a lot of effort to hold separation and isn’t much fun! Actually, it’s boring.
Thank you for your loving presence, wisdom, and delicious sense of humor. I deeply appreciate the transformation that has happened and am so enjoying connecting with my core serenity. I am now playing a bigger game of expanded awareness.

Lasting changes, a report years after his sessions with Dex

I received this message from someone who had sessions with me 2-1/2 years ago:

“Hi Dex, I continue to be free of old attitudes and stuck ideas that caused so much upset in my life previously. Keep up with the work you’re doing, I’m looking forward to your book!”

” I feel as though Dex is giving me my life back.”

Hey Dex,
Just wanted to share some realizations I have had since session:
I feel so much lighter and freer. My thoughts are my own now.
Those energies and negative emotions about who I am are starting to dissipate and go away.
I used to feel like I owed people (and the world) something. I realize now that I don’t.
I can be more myself than I ever felt like I had that right to be. It is OK to be me.
This is so personal to me. I feel like I am on the edge of a new adventure, the adventure of me.
No one owns me now. I can be much more productive and happy from this viewpoint.
I feel as though Dex is giving me my life back.
Thanks Dex
