Imaginotions: Part Eight

Once long ago I dreamed of a flower that could speak. 

Strange it was. 

I knew not to speak of it to anyone. 

I would be thought odd. 

Crazy. 

Insane. 

Yet the flower did speak.

What it said was of William Blake and the poets of old. 


It spoke of natural beauty, easy being, quiet life. 

No effort. 

No strain. 

It grew and blossomed naturally, easily, without fuss or strain or worry or doubt. 

I would look at the flower and wonder what else it had to say. 

Perhaps if we all looked at every thing living, and waited, it would all speak. 

Flowers. 

Trees. 

Birds. 

Butterflies. 

Clouds. 

Rocks. 

Rain. 

Sun. 

It all held wisdom, simplicity, truth. 


All we had to do was watch and wait, listen and hear.

One day I decided to test this theory. 

I looked at an insect walking on the ground outside, going where only it knew. 

It stopped. 

It may have felt my stare. 

I looked. 

I waited.

And the insect seemed to convey a truth. 

Working wasn't work to it. 

It was simply doing what was natural for him/her to do. 

No complaining of low pay or bad hours or boring repetitious activity. 

It was an insect. 

It worked and lived as an insect.

I felt the knowing of a mind without commentary. 


Just do your thing. 

If you are a writer, then write.

If you are a baker, then bake. 

If you are a pilot, then fly. 

All the second guessing and wondering why simply gummed up the process if not actually stopped it.

And so the flower spoke. 

But as I listened, I heard the world awaken. 

Was it just me?

Or do you hear it too?

Ao Akua,

Dr. Joe

Imaginotions: Part Seven

“Can a book put you in a trance?”
I’ve been practicing hypnosis since the 1960s. I’ve written books such as Hypnotic Writing and Buying Trances, so the question was not out of line.
“Why do you ask?”
“I thought maybe I could just read and have change happen.”
“You mean without doing anything?”
“Nothing more than read. I’m tired of struggling to change.”
“You have to want to change,” I pointed out.
“I do! But everything I tried so far doesn’t help.”
“You think reading a book will?”
“You’ve told me of books that have inspired people to change. Can you write one for me?”
“Specifically for you?”
“Yes.”
“You prefer that over my just putting you into a trance?”
“You’ve done that and I’m still me.”
“You’ll always be you,” I explained. “You’re simply wanting to be a new and improved version of yourself.”
“If I could do it on my own, I would. I think I’m resisting change in our sessions.”
“Why would you resist what you want?”


“Huh?”
“You said you are resisting change. I’m asking why you would resist changing into what you say you want?”
“I guess a part of me doesn’t want the change.”
“And why would that part not want what the rest of you wants?”
“That’s what I don’t get, Doc. I mean, I want to change, and I’m here with you to change, but I’m obviously not changing.”
“And so you think a book will do it?”
“A book by you, yes. You could make it hypnotic and the message might bypass the critical part of me that is blocking change.”
“This sounds like you created a solution for yourself.”
“I guess so. Will you do it?”
“If I wrote such a book, what do you think would be in it to convince that part of you to finally change now?”
“You could tell me a story and I’d be so interested in the story that I wouldn’t notice that a change took place while I was reading it.”
“You’re pretty clever,” I said.


“Well if I were truly clever, I wouldn’t need the book I’m requesting.”
“If I told you a story in this book about how a person changed by simply taking action in the direction of the change they wanted, would you accept it?”
“If it’s a true story.”
“There a hundreds if not thousands of books by and about people who have overcome adversity and all odds to achieve breakthroughs and transformations.”
“I”d like to be one of those people.”
“What do you want to achieve?”
“I already told you. I want to improve myself so I like myself.”
“If you liked yourself right now, how would you feel?”
“Better than I do now.”
“Yes, but what would you be feeling?”
“I don’t know, Doc. I guess peace, love, appreciation.”
“Can you remember a time when you felt that way?”
Silence.
“Well, I remember getting a good grade on a paper in school and I felt proud of myself.”
“Do you have a memory from even earlier than that?”
“Not really.”
“Think for a moment…”


Silence.
“Well there was a time when I was a little kid and my mom said I did something good.”
“What did you do?”
“I think I cleaned my room.”
“And you felt what?”
“Proud.”
“Pride in yourself is a healthy feeling,” I explained. “Do you feel pride these days?”
“No.”
“What about for trying to take care of yourself by seeing me?”
“I guess that’s a good thing.”
“How do you feel knowing it’s a good thing?”
“Some pride, I guess. But how do I get past all the negative stuff about myself?”
“You are remembering the negative but you are also remembering the positive. Maybe you can do more remembering of the positive.”
“Doesn’t seem easy.”
“Tell you what. I’ll make it easy for you.”
“Finally.”
I handed out two coins.
“Which do you want?” I asked.
“Does it matter?”
“One is a good coin. The other is a less than good coin.”
“I’ll take the good coin.”


“Why?”
“Well because it’s good. It’s the better choice.”
“And why wouldn’t you want the less than good coin?”
“I don’t want to have a coin less than what I could have.”
“I see.”
We stared at each other.
“I think I see your point, Doc.”
“What is it?”
“I can choose.”
“Choose what?”
“The good memories.”
“And why would you choose good memories?”
“They feel better.”
“Do you still want me to write a book for you?”
“It’s your choice, Doc.”

Love
Dr Joe

You don’t have to suffer anymore. Understanding your operating beliefs can help you break free. Here’s a brief video explaining how I left homelessness by awakening. Enjoy.
