Logosynthesis – Change through the Magic of Words

By Willem Lammers, MSc.

Logosynthesis is a new, remarkably elegant and efficient system for guided change – psychotherapy, coaching, and counseling. It can also be used as a self-help tool. This new system contains elements from many models in the field: energy psychology, transactional analysis, NLP, cognitive behavioral therapy, psychoanalysis, self-psychology and hypnotherapy, in an extremely effective combination. The author, myself, first introduced the model in 2005, and since then it has been continuously expanded.

As one of very few models, Logosynthesis also creates a unique space for the spiritual dimension of guided change: it helps us understand personal growth and development as a quality of our deepest human nature. As a method, Logosynthesis applies the age-old power of the word as a new, amazing healing tool, a starting point for surprisingly gentle healing of trauma, addiction, fear and stress symptoms.

Logosynthesis is based on four axioms, which may sound familiar, but which are new in their combination:

  1. Suffering is primarily the result of reduced awareness of our Essence, our core self, and of our creative tasks.

  2. Dissociated parts and introjects prevent our being fully aware of and living through our core self.

  3. Dissociated parts and introjects are rigid energy structures existing in 3-dimensional space, rather than abstract cognitive parts of mind.

  4. The power of the word itself dissolves these frozen structures and allows the energy they were holding captive to be reclaimed into the Living Self.
In contrast to other schools of energy psychology, Logosynthesis doesn't use visualization, light, touch, tapping or other kinds of mechanical stimulation of the human energy system. Its method is completely based upon the power of the word as a driving principle to focus intention and manifest change. Simply saying specific words and sentences initiates a very effective goal-directed process, which generates results comparable to those other energy psychology methods. The dynamics of the Logosynthesis process are known from descriptions of the creation process in spiritual traditions, and they're also associated with magic and mystery schools. The age-old incantation "Abracadabra" supports this principle. Did you know it's Aramaic and means "I create while speaking?"

Logosynthesis teaches clear interventions in the form of specific sentences offered to the client, embedded in a beautifully broad and deep view of human nature. In the words of a client: "It's a deeply moving experience to feel the power of the word working in my own being, to experience change so immediately. Time expands and slows down, my flow of thoughts comes to a standstill. An inner space opens up, a space for My Self."

Case example:
Sarah, playing music Sarah is a 30-year old business manager. She used to get anxious if she had to play the piano in front of people. In one session, she resolved this issue with the help of Logosynthesis, within a few minutes. The literal transcript of this sequence follows here. The transcript starts after I asked her to imagine the situation in which she experienced the fear:

  • Sarah: "I watch myself playing the piano, going all tense."
  • The coach gives her a sentence: "I retrieve all my energy that bound up in this fear of playing the piano."
  • Sarah, after repeating the sentence, and being silent for a while: "I become a bit calmer." The coach gives her a second sentence: "I retrieve all my energy from the person watching me play the piano, and take it back to myself."
  • Sarah, after repeating the sentence, and being silent for a while: "I become sad and cannot play anymore."
  • The coach gives her a third sentence: "I remove all energy of the person watching me play the piano – out of my personal space and send it into the Light."
  • Then, after a long silence, Sarah says: "I'm playing music, not notes!"

Recently, the book "Logosynthesis - Change through the Magic of Words" was published. On 224 highly readable pages, this book explains the model as well as the application of Logosynthesis in your own practice for guided change, with examples for different types of issues. Annotated transcripts of actual sessions will help you to understand the system in detail. You can order it through the international website

"I want to just say 'WOW!' This collection is probably the best money I ever spent! I've already received many times over in personal enrichment after just 9 days. I've had a past metaphysical background, but even newcomers to this material will really benefit. Thanks again." ~ J.S. (Pennsylvania, USA)
"The collection is everything which you promised. And more! A superb contribution to the good of the world. Many thanks indeed." ~ R.P. (Georgia, USA)
"Just a short note of thanks for the library. I've only had membership for several days now but I already feel this is perhaps the most interesting compilation I have yet seen. Worth far more than the price of admission. The browser linked structure works well and makes it easy to manage such a large storehouse of information. It is rarely that I find something I like as much as this or that I feel strongly enough to write a note like this." ~ P.W. (Minnesota, USA)
