SHE HAD LOST HER PHONE!
One fascinating aspect of what we call the subconscious mind is that it can work on a problem or challenge without our conscious awareness that it is doing so. Recently I had an incident that demonstrates this beautifully.
Let me start off by saying that when you offer professional hypnosis services, it is usually advised you don't attempt to work with close friends or family members as it can blur personal boundaries. However there are situations where its OK to make an exception.
This past weekend one my daughters reported one of the most stressful things that can happen to a teenager in this day and age- SHE HAD LOST HER PHONE! The last thing she remembered was using her phone to call me for a ride home Friday evening after visiting some friends.
Usually I am able to find lost objects pretty easily, for some reason I have always had a knack for this. Yet this one had me stumped. Along with the rest of the household, I searched high and low but to no avail. SHE HAD LOST HER PHONE!
Sensing her mounting frustration, I asked her if she would be willing to try something like hypnosis and she agreed.
I had her sit and close her eyes and told to take a few easy breaths in order to relax. Next, I had her recollect the events of the evening. We had gone out to dinner as a family prior to her going to the friend's house, so I asked to remember what she had ate, what music playing in the car. These were seemingly insignificant details, but I figured doing so would trigger memory associations.
Next we reviewed what we went on at the friends house, the ride home after and what she did when she returned. A couple of times she would draw a blank so I would have her rewind and go back to the beginning of the evening and review what we knew and more details would emerge.
Eventually she remembered she had fallen asleep while watching a movie. Later on she awoke briefly in the middle of the night and got up to change into her pajamas and in that half awake state recalled hearing something fall from her bed and go bump on the floor. As this detail emerged she got kind of puzzled look on her face and softly said, "huh?"
At this point I had her open her eyes and said we would pick up on this later and offered the suggestion that when we focus on something intently for awhile, other information often pops up on its own later on.
I had to head out for an hour or so run some errands and when I returned guess who had FOUND HER PHONE? After I had left she reported she had been brushing her hair while looking in the mirror when all of sudden a thought came to her that the phone slid under her bookcase when she heard the bump in the night. Lo and behold that is exactly where it was.
She reported that this 'paranormal experience' as she described it was a bit unsettling, nevertheless she was happy that she had FOUND HER PHONE.
Actually what happened was perfectly natural and a wonderful demonstration of how the subconscious mind can be a magnificent problem solving tool, especially when we give a challenge our full attention for a time and then relax and let it go for awhile.
Numerous artists and inventors have reported a similar chain of events when they experienced their greatest inspirations and breakthroughs.
