Sunan FAQs

Throughout this website, especially in the stories of personal healing resolution, we have attempted to explain what it feels like when unconditional love heals our pain and sets us free from self-destructive, self-defeating emotions and behavior patterns.

Having reviewed this website, however, may still leave many questions about exactly what transpires during a healing resolution session.

To answer at least some of these queries, we offer some specifics on the nuts and bolts of a session. We also provide a history of the method's origins.

Can you sum up the differences between the Sunan method and other types of therapy?

At essence Sunan is very simple. It consists of by-passing the mental part of our being in order to find and release judgment against self. Such judgments are not to be found in the conscious mind, nor are they readily available to us in most meditative states. We find these self-judgments by means of the subjective altered state, which taps into the emotional body (inner child).

Another difference is the emotional and spiritual connection between therapist and client. In Sunan, the client is not emotionally isolated. The therapist does not have to guess what is transpiring for the client because the therapist emotionally and spiritually shares all of the client's experiences in the session.

Yet a third and very important difference is the presence of God's unconditional love throughout every session of Sunan therapy. Although it cannot be seen with physical eyes, felt with physical hands or measured with any scientific instrument yet known, that love is a very real flow of energy. This love-flow defines the subjective altered state. Its presence emotionally and spiritually supports all participants in the session as clients review their self-judgments and make new decisions about self in order to release those self-judgments.

In the flow of God's unconditional love, we learn that we need not re-experience pain or trauma in order to heal and grow. Clients tell us that the Sunan method is much gentler and far less painful than other forms of therapy they have tried, both traditional and alternative.

What kinds of mental health problems is the Sunan method best suited to address?

Instead of addressing a label, such as bi-polar disorder, the Sunan method works best for certain people. These people have made a firm commitment to their own healing and self-growth. They have fears, but they do not allow those fears to stop them from facing and resolving their issues. In other words, they are firmly committed to their own self-growth.

That having been said, Sunan therapies have been effective for certain problems, such as panic disorder and multiple personality disorder. But we must emphasize that Sunan therapists do not diagnose. A diagnosis is a limitation. We address the whole person instead.

How long does Sunan therapy last?

Sunan therapies are not done once a week for months or years. After three to four initial sessions, it may be weeks or months before any follow-up is needed. It took four sessions of Sunan therapy to resolve the panic disorder case, and 12 sessions over three years reintegrate the person with MPD.

How is it possible to need so few therapy sessions to obtain real results and benefits?

The answer to this question has several parts. First, it's possible because the Sunan therapist does not select which issues clients address in each session. That choice is made by our guides (angels), who know us much better than our therapist. By eliminating a good deal of time-consuming guesswork from the Sunan method, guides help reduce the number of sessions needed.

Our guides also have a good idea of what we are emotionally prepared to face at the time of therapy. Emotional preparedness is critical. If we are not ready to face an issue emotionally, we simply do not have the ability to face it, no matter what issues we may consciously think we are prepared to address.

Second, it's possible to obtain life-changing healing resolution in just a few sessions because Sunan directly addresses that part of self that holds the issues that are causing us pain and blocking our growth. That part of self is the emotional body (inner child).

And third, it's possible because we make active use of the abilities of the souls that we are during Sunan therapy. These abilities consist, in part, of intuitive (psychic) perception.

Using our soul or psychic senses, we are able to perceive beyond the conscious-mind surface to become aware of others' deeper motives and level of ability as well as of our own. It's akin to perceiving at once all the sides of the cube as well as inside of the box instead of analyzing just the flat, one-dimensional front surface. We obtain a great deal of new information about others and about self very rapidly.

The other attribute of the soul that helps reduce the number of sessions needed for healing is the soul's ability to love. Love is the very energy-essence of the universe and of who we are as created souls. Whenever we remove one or more of the self-judgments that block the soul's ability to love, we have expanded our self-awareness.

As a natural result of this expanded self-awareness, the soul that we are begins to love self to a greater extent, and to experience an enhanced sense of connection with our Creator. That greater self-love and greater connection automatically bring about healing resolution and self-growth.

What takes place at the start of a Sunan therapy session?

Clad in comfortable clothing, without jewelry or shoes, clients lie on their backs on a massage table. If they prefer, they can be wrapped in a quilt or blanket for an extra measure of reassurance.

The Sunan therapist sits on a chair next to the table by the client's shoulders and coaches the client into a deeply relaxed, meditative state. We call it the subjective altered state. While helping the client attain this state, the therapist goes into this altered state of consciousness as well.

Unlike almost every other healing method we know of, traditional and alternative, the Sunan therapist is emotionally and spiritually connected with the client throughout the session. This remains true as long as both parties do not ground.

By "ground," we mean leave the subjective altered state and return to an analytical, waking state of consciousness. If either party does this, the result is to shut off the flow of unconditional love that has been evoked by the therapist at the start of the session as part of the process of moving self and client mutually into the subjective altered state.

Then what happens?

That depends entirely on the client's needs, and those needs are not determined by the Sunan therapist. Instead, the client's guides have been reviewing the session with members of the nonphysical Sunan Society. These souls are healers who specialize in this method and are not in physical body at this time.

First-time clients often need the reassurance of meeting one or more of their guides before addressing any issues. Client and therapist share out loud through a quiet conversation the images, feelings, thoughts and inner sounds they are both perceiving simultaneously through their soul senses during their shared altered state. The experience is highly emotional, but it is not painful as long as client and therapist remain in the flow of energy and do not ground.

As the new, deeper information about self and other comes forward for the client, client and therapist review it and discuss it, assisted by the clients' guides and by members of the Sunan Society.

This review of issues is not by any means analytical or objective. It is deeply heart-felt and resonates at the emotional and spiritual levels of both client and therapist. It is an experience so profound that it cannot be truly comprehended merely by reading about it.

We have to experience healing resolution for ourselves in order to recognize the difference. And there is a profound difference between trying to heal self using only the mental and/or physical part of our being, and healing self with all of our being-mental, physical, emotional and spiritual-actively involved. To paraphrase Mark Twain, it is the difference between the lightning bug and lightning.

How long do Sunan sessions last?

Sessions are not timed. They can't be, because the therapist is also in the subjective altered state. A therapist who's watching the clock is not in this state. We lose awareness of time passing while in the subjective altered state.

Sessions can last anywhere from 45 minutes to more than four hours. Again, the length depends on clients' needs and abilities. We do our best not to leave issues unresolved before sessions end, but that is not up to the therapist. The client is always in charge.

For various reasons, some clients opt to end sessions without getting as much benefit as they otherwise might have been able to obtain. We respect their choices while informing them why we don't think their decision is necessarily in their best interest.

How did the Sunan method come into being?

Answering this question involves explaining about Dr. Sunan. He is the nonphysical originator of the Sunan method. He has had many physical lifetimes as a healer in many different societies on earth. Some have been in what we call the East. Other lives have been in the West. He has been trained in the Western scientific method and in the Eastern system of differing energies. He has worn many names and titles, but mostly all of his many physical lives on planet earth have been devoted to healing under one system or another.

His continuing frustration with each of these systems is that none seemed to be complete. Always there was something missing. In his existences between physical lifetimes, he attempted to gain the "big picture" about what it takes to bring about true healing and lasting personal change and growth.

He has spent much of his existence as a created soul attempting to devise or develop an integrated system for making it possible to achieve very rapid and painless healing and personal growth. That is why he chose to experience many different earth cultures: he wanted to learn from all of them as well as from information that is not readily available to those on earth-unless they are willing to use their soul senses to obtain it.

Dr. Sunan says Sunan methodologies are much like a patchwork quilt. The methods draw from everything he has experienced on earth and from some knowledge and wisdom more readily available to those not in physical body. He drew from the East and from the West. And he relied on the wisdom and learning of many other souls who were drawn to the energy of his efforts. Collectively these souls and Dr. Sunan are known as the Sunan Society.

In about the year we would consider 1939, the Sunan Society and Dr. Sunan began putting all these varying techniques and disciplines into a more formal approach to healing self.

Time and space don't mean the same when souls are not in the body as they do when we are focused in a material reality such as earth. How can Dr. Sunan pinpoint such a precise date?

Because 1939 was the date of his latest physical death, as measured on earth. Long before he left his last physical body, he had the beginnings of a comprehensive system for healing the spirit and the emotions and for bringing about rapid growth of every part of self. He had long pondered the questions of why human beings behave the way they do-the good, the bad and the downright ugly and nasty.

Like most souls who inhabit physical dimensions, however, he had only a spotty connection to what he sensed intuitively was the spiritual dimension of his being. That sense of disconnection also was an issue that concerned him greatly. He suspected that the answers to the questions that he had been asking himself all that lifetime and for many lifetimes before were bound up in some manner with his and other souls' abilities to tap into their inherent spirituality even while in physical body. Caught up in the material reality of earth, he seemed so distant from his Creator and even from his very soul. That separation distressed him.

When he "died," he set to work right away on developing the somewhat nebulous concepts of a comprehensive healing/growth system he had thought about and pondered while in his physical lifetime.

Dr. Sunan also spent a great deal of energy and focus on examining the true nature of energy. He knew the scientific definition inside and out; he wanted a metaphysical definition. Together with many wise souls, he developed the definition that is the core of Sunan theory. This definition states that energy is the ability to love. Dr. Sunan does not take entire credit for this critical insight, which restates and expands the equality of matter and energy to include consciousness and unconditional love.

What is the most important understanding that developing the Sunan method has imparted to Dr. Sunan?

There have been so many as this method continues to unfold and evolve. The one that perhaps astounded him the most is the recognition that expertise as it is currently defined on earth is not what heals.

Dr. Sunan has been a physician and/or scientist and/or researcher in almost every one of his physical lives. He has been very well known and adulated as an "expert." There was a time when he, also, sincerely believed that intellectual complexity was necessary to achieve healing and growth. He relished being an expert and derived no small part of his identity and self-worth from that label.

He does not anymore. Not after he has witnessed first-hand thousands upon thousands of instances in which complete "non-experts" were fully capable of resolving their own issues with the help of other so-called non-experts. This has taught him that the only true expertise that exists is expertise in self. The more we grow in self-awareness and corresponding self-love and self-acceptance, the less we set ourselves up to be forced into relying on outside experts.

The key insight here is simplicity. Unconditional love is utterly simple. Healing and growth based on unconditional love are also utterly simple. But when our individual beliefs and our collective perception are gummed up and made complex by the presence of judgment against self, we find it almost impossible to believe that simplicity really will be effective against issues and pain that have entirely eluded the best and the brightest of intellects. We have to keep proving this to ourselves over and over again.

Dr. Sunan says not to confuse simple with easy. Unconditional love is simple. Examining and releasing self-judgment is simple in the flow of unconditional love. What's hard, however, is that commitment to self that makes all healing and growth possible. What's hard is admitting to our fears and insecurities but not allowing them to stop us on our path.

That is our real challenge, according to Dr. Sunan. He says we now have at least one method for rapid and painless healing and spiritual evolution. But no method will be of any good to us if we refuse the call to be true to ourselves; if we allow others to define our purpose in life; if we keep making excuses and dumping responsibility for our pain on others.
