Fear Vs Change

Michela Seedanee & Joseph Lopez

When your world changes you have three options:

a) Stay exactly the same

b) Change your world back

c) Change yourself

Your decision of which of these roads to take will depend on the subconscious patterns that you have adapted so far in your life and will not be a conscious decision.

To stay the same is to take no action at all in response to the changes in the world – you may freeze, you may detach from what is happening around you or you may deny it – your subconscious will cocoon you somehow and try to preserve you in the hope that everything will return to normal. This is better known as Fear.

In order to change the world back you will need to make some changes in yourself to do so, but the motivation for these changes will come from what was. If you liked the way things were before you were probably well adjusted to achieve what you wanted with the world that way, but to fight for that in your new world you will have to adapt to some degree and if you succeed, you will find that the old world is not the same, because you are not the same.

The alternative is to change yourself and adapt to the new world, changes motivated by the possibilities within this new world.

In this story, Alex meets a girl who has done exactly that, adapted to her new world in a very unique way, as if a switch was flipped in her subconscious by intense emotion when her world changed.As a Hypnotist, Alex hypnotises her and tells her subconscious mind that it has done a good job but assures her that her needs will be met in another way, a better way and basically reassures the part of her mind that has reacted by taking these extreme measures so it can relax and undo them. He effectively gives her back herself.

The induction in this story is a real one. He observes some of her experiences and behaviours and feeds them back to her as part of the induction creating a loop that captures the attention of the subconscious mind and allows the hypnotist to take it over.
