Let me preface this blog by saying…although I am proficient enough to host a website and write this blog, I am NOT a techie. AT ALL.
I still get confused about how to download and save things. It’s not good.
Regardless, I’m not one to refuse a challenge, so I have this whole project in the works for a paid group that I run on Facebook called Magic, Mindset, and Marketing. Part of it involves figuring out a way to save Facebook videos and relocate them. I won’t bore you with the details, but it is NOT easy. I worked on it for two weeks, and suffice it to say there was a lot of swearing and wine involved. I could not figure out how to do the thing, even with the help of various experts and tons of research.
While I was in the midst of this project, I came to work and saw that I had four hypnoacupuncture sessions in a row lined up.
So, the interesting thing about hypnosis, at least in my case, is that I go into a light state of hypnosis along with my clients. Obviously I am awake, aware, and functional. But I drift into a state of deeper connection with my patients. Quite often, I will get messages that the client needs to hear, or will have a vision of what I need to communicate to this person. It’s very cool. Over and over, I will say something that comes into my mind during this light trance state, and the patient will later exclaim, “How did you know this? It was exactly what I was thinking/wanted to hear/needed to know.”
On this particular day, I was on patient three, and DEEP in the zone. As I went through my protocol to bring the client into the subconscious state, I wasn’t thinking. Seriously, I had zero thoughts in my head. I was so into the session that the only thing that existed for me at this moment was the lull of my own voice, the words so familiar that I was in a perfect state of flow, with no need to engage my brain in actual thinking. My mind was blank, empty, in a rare instance of what some would call a perfect meditative state. And in the stillness and silence, I heard a voice whisper to me…
“You need to install Dropbox.”
Even though the voice was in my head, it felt so separate from me that I jumped a bit, startled. What the hell?
I refocused my attention on the session at hand, and once it was over, I realized that this was the answer to my tech dilemma. I NEVER would have thought of it on my own, and in fact I’ve never really used Dropbox, or knew anything about it. But once I did five minutes of research, I found out that this was the solution I had been searching for, for weeks on end. It was so simple, yet so far out of my reach…at least, normally it was.
“KAREN!” I blurted to my office manager, as she tried to eat her lunch in peace, “OMG. Guess what??”
“What?” she asked warily.
“The voice of Spirit came to me in a session today! I received a holy message.”
“What are you talking about?”
“It told me to download Dropbox so that we can migrate the videos over, and you know what? It’s totally true! I was in this meditative state while hypnotizing and that’s what I was told. So please download Dropbox so we can get these videos done.”
Never a dull moment at our office.
Although I jokingly referred to this voice as Spirit, I truly believe that this situation was a momentary but profound connection with what people refer to as “Higher Self.” This is the part of us that is pure love and brilliance, untainted by all the crap…the constant influx of sensory information, our doubts and fears and limiting beliefs, those old experiences that lead us astray when we are seeking insight. I really do believe that we are limitless in our potential to KNOW, that we have knowledge beyond our wildest imaginations, but these pathways to knowledge get blocked. When we are in the unique space of being in perfect flow and NOT blocking ourselves by thinking, this is when the pathways clear, and we get what we need…
