It is perfectly fine for practitioners to adopt their own pacing and to put a personal stamp on things on how they think about the steps of the Protocol and interweave their experience with the recitation of the request wordings to ensure there is a uniformity in execution. The only danger is in the possibility of making the practitioner the center of attention, to hold the spotlight, which might begin to redirect the intention towards the self more than the recipients of the Protocol requests themselves. This is something that depends on the personality and makeup of the practitioner in how they hold the energy and how their mind works, and so on. In most cases, people will not be able to functionally hold a strong intention on the part of others for such lengths of time, so there is a possibility as well of a diminishment over time in the intensity of things. So the perception of accomplishing the imposition of greater intention might not always be accurate. We are just giving you these points to ponder as only you know what is in your mind and heart in a given moment. So we can tell you that the intention you hold in a true sense is all-important, and while it can be infused with and imbued with the essence of your being in the form of loving kindness and the desire for upliftment and a betterment of those you are trying to help, this energy and intention needs to be directed towards the clients and not focused too greatly on the self as that is what has a potential for misdirecting things.
