Your target in Logosynthesis is the thing you experience just before you feel anxious or upset in some other way. It is the place where you froze some of your energy because you didn’t have the resources to manage that experience sometime in the past.
Your target is also the identification of that memory, often of an event, but sometimes of a smell or sound or picture that is the most uncomfortable thing about some event, put into words.
Those are the words you insert into the 3 “magic” sentences that make all the difference.
It is saying these sentences, complete with target, that allows you  to reclaim your energy so you can use it in your life now.
When you do this process, something changes in amazing ways. You can usually remember the experience that used to cause you distress and feel completely calm about the whole thing.
I did not believe this was possible until I tried it myself. (Actually, someone helped me the first time.) If you are skeptical like me, I suggest you experiment and enjoy this amazing experience of freedom.
