How can I ensure I am working on the root cause memory then?
Please watch the video ''Fair warning and the key'' in week 2 first. We suggest before attempting more traumatic memories, you first practice with smaller memories that bothered you a little.
After that's in order and you practiced sufficiently follow the source hacking steps of:
1) Bring up the negative emotions you feel in your body as much as possible. Be dramatic about it and try to get it as close to 10 as possible.
2) Proceed to ask your subconscious the question:
''What is the earliest memory I have of these/this emotion''
''When was the first time I felt this way''
The first memory that comes into your mind, don't question it and talk yourself out of it. Sometimes it may seem completely unrelated but our subconscious mind makes no mistakes.
