As it is in any skill or craft, all users start out as novices. The novice often has some preconceived notions about it, but in most cases these are soon replaced by actual facts and genuine experience.
If one were learning to surf, it is possible to figure out how the basic skills work on your own. As you repeatedly fall in the water, eventually, you happen on the correct skill. But in surfing you have the advantage of falling in the water to tell you un-apologetically that your skills suck.
Obviously, if you have only read about surfing, have never been on a board or even tried to swim in the big surf, you have zero practical experience. If at that point you decide to listen to an instructor, you will rapidly learn the skills you need, and you will be safely on your way to becoming a surfer.
If instead, you decide that after reading a bit about it that you can get on the 30′ waves and dazzle the girls your first time out. You could die.
Grandstanding is very unwise behavior, particularly for beginners.
In Rife Therapy, just as in any discipline that calls on your skills and experience, wisdom and mastery combined with consummate skill, is often called an art.
In art, there are important distinctions that help to define what is art, and what is craft. If John Lennon writes a brilliant song, it is art. The harmonica player on the street corner can play the tune, but it is not art, it is craft. Even when John Lennon plays the song himself, it is not art, it is craft for the same reason.
With the advent of audio recording technology, the harmonica player can simply play a John Lennon song, performed by John Lennon, and have music infinitely superior to anything he has
any hope ever to produce on his own.
Rife Therapy recorded sessions are much the same. The user can perform the craft according to the skills of someone far more experienced than themselves. By following the basic guidelines, personal coaching will also be more on target.
