I had my purse on my shoulder and my keys in one hand, the other hand on the knob of the open door to my back porch. Then I got a funny feeling telling me I had to go to the bathroom again. It didn’t make sense. But I had learned to listen to my body so I turned away from the door and went into the bathroom. Suddenly I heard a loud explosion. I ran back into the kitchen and found shredded pieces of wood all over the floor around the door jamb and several holes in my refrigerator. I was stupefied and completely confused.
I stood there open-mouthed as he explained that he had been cleaning his shotgun and dropped it, not realizing that there was a shell in the chamber. The gun discharged and sprayed 16 pieces of buckshot right into the spot where my back would have been if I had continued heading toward my car and locking the back door.
Was it a Guardian Angel or my own instincts? Either way, my willingness to listen to an inner voice pulled me away from that door.
What does this have to do with hypnosis? It has everything to do with hypnosis. Hypnosis gets you out of the limits of the logical conscious mind and into the unlimited depth of the emotional, intuitive, imaginative subconscious mind. As with any other practice, the more you do it, the better you get at it. The more you tune inward, the more in-tune you are with intuition and instincts. It’s also important to find and release any negative emotions that are covering the lens that will let you clearly see the messages that your highest instincts are trying to show you.
I had a friend who used the S.W.A.G. method for making decisions. He’d do all the research and then allow himself to tune into his inner voice. He would make a “Scientific Wild-Ass Guess”. He had a superb track record.
Doing a frequent program of hypnosis and self-hypnosis can help you be more in touch with the intuitive feelings that come from the subconscious. Practice strengthens your ability to go more quickly and more deeply into the subconscious realm. You never know when you might need it.
