Imagine the tasks the subconscious mind must perform
for the mind to talk with itself, let alone other minds. The subconscious
must translate the words of the conscious mind´s language into the
symbolic images of inner thought forms, even as it is simultaneously translating
the inner thought form images into words for the conscious mind. And it
must do all of this instantly.
It will help you to grasp the complexity of this, by
thinking of the word ´mother´. You have stored in your memory
banks many thought form images of the word ´mother´. Each
has a different meaning and many are linked with memory and emotions.
The subconscious must discern, instantly, which thought form image you
want and whether any of the memories and emotions linked with that image
are to be suppressed and kept from the conscious awareness. At the same
time as it is doing this, the subconscious must translate the chosen thought
form image into words for the conscious mind. Imagine how busy the subconscious
mind is with a whole string of words. Imagine what is going on in a conversation
with another person! Is it any wonder we marvel at the truly extraordinary
task master abilities of the subconscious mind?
Thought forms are the natural language of the mind.
Thus, symbols and symbolic language are a natural for humans. Our first
written languages were symbolic pictures. Much of the history of ancient
humans was recorded in symbolic stories. Myths, contrary to modern opinion,
were such histories. Many people believe many of the stories in Holy Books
are symbolic stories.
The subconscious mind continues to use symbolic communication
in its attempts to keep the conscious mind informed of the messages and
status of the body, mind, and spirit. It is one of the tragedies of modern
humans that we have forgotten this. Our attempts to understand our dreams
is a dim recollection of the importance of this communication from our
inner levels. Unfortunately, most people have forgotten, at the conscious
levels, the symbolic language of the mind and have a heck of a time figuring
out what their dreams mean.
Dream books that supply universal meanings of common
symbols found in dreams are helpful. Developing your ability to find your
own inner meanings of dream symbols is, of course, even better. (One hint:
In most dreams, every person, place, or thing in your dream represents
an aspect of YOU or YOUR relationship to that person, place, or thing.)
An excellent book on universal dream symbols and one on finding your own
interpretations of dream symbols are in our book list at the back of this
book. An even better method is interpreting your dreams in a hypnotic
state. Since dream messages are from your inner levels of mind and spirit,
the best interpreters of these messages are your inner mind and spirit.
Joel came to us with the following dream: "I was
driving along a country road. I had to turn right to take the road that
led to my house, but my car wouldn´t turn. Seemingly of its own
accord, it headed toward the freeway. On the freeway, I kept struggling
to get back control of the car and finally managed to make a U Turn on
the freeway, right in front of a sign that said ´NO U Turn´.
Something else happens next, which I don´t remember."
Joel consciously analyzed the dream as relating to
a decision he had made to forgo going "on the road" giving seminars
as he´d planned. The "right turn" would be to keep his regular
position which afforded him the security of a steady income. Though he
was certain the dream was telling him he´d made the right decision,
he´d felt irritable ever since having the dream. He wanted to know
if there was more to the dream than he´d already figured out.
In hypnosis, Joel´s inner mind said: "The
message is a warning that his greater purpose is to go forward. To turn
from his purpose into the familiar, tried, and true is NOT the right way.
The meaning of the freeway is he came to teach many. This is his greater
purpose. Matters are out of his control now; his Higher Self moves him
onto his path of purpose. This is the meaning of the car moving forward
out of his control. He resists this. He tries to wrest control of his
life back by willfully turning from his purpose. The sign [No U Turn]
warns him that turning back from his greater purpose is not allowed; it
is the wrong direction. The part of the dream he has forgotten is when
he turns back he gets lost in the maze of unknown territory. He has great
difficulty finding his way. Forgetting this part of the dream underscores
or doubles the meaning of this part of the dream; which is, to forget
his greater purpose is to lose all meaning in his life. He will find great
loss. The message of the dream is very clear: Stay on your path of greater
Joel was astonished at this interpretation of his dream.
NMR verified this was the correct interpretation. Reviewing that interpretation,
Joel remarked, "It´s true. I´ve been very anxious and
tense ever since I made my decision to return to my regular position,
though it is certainly more comfortable and secure. Still, I DO believe
I have something important to offer to more people than I can reach where
I am. I was afraid that was just ego. But it is what I want to do and
I´ve always believed what one truly, deeply desires IS the right
thing to do. I guess instead of letting my fears about ego stop me, I´d
do better to use my ego to help me move forward."
The ego, contrary to many "teachings", is an
important part of the soul. Without ego, the variety and uniqueness of
personalities and their experiences would be sadly lacking on the earth
planes. To seek to lose the personality on the planes of lower spirit
misses the point. Exploring and enjoying the many paths along the journey
leads, we think, to greater understanding of all of Creation.
Andrea brought her dream in to be interpreted: "I
am climbing a hill with my husband and his brother. Suddenly we notice
water is rising around the hill. We realize the water will soon submerge
us. I head for the front of the hill, but my husband and his brother go
down the back of the hill. As the water rises to where I am, I notice
there is a stepping stone just under the surface of the water. I step
on it and it holds me up. There is another stepping stone just to the
right of me. I hesitate to step on it, because I realize it leads to the
deeper waters on my right, where I can´t see any stones. If I go
left, where the water is still shallow, I can just make it to dry land.
I stand there, trying to decide what to do when I wake up."
NMR indicated the dream was from the Higher Self and
so, in hypnosis, the Higher Self interpreted the dream as follows: "This
dream is prophetic and she has forgotten on her conscious level parts
of the dream, which I shall supply. She, her mate, and his brother climb
the hill to have a picnic. This signals that her mate´s brother
will be joining them in their circle of love. The picnic shows this joining
will be around food and that it brings a sense of family and fun each
lack in their daily attention to duty. The hill symbolizes the upward
climb each face in the next phase of their lives. The hill grows larger,
even as they climb it; a warning that the challenges will be greater than
foreseen. The rising flood waters amplify this message; the challenge
is great and threatens to engulf each of them. The brother of the mate
will want to retreat from this challenge. He will seek to take his brother
into his retreat with him, whether she follows or not. Her mate has great
loyalty to the brother. That this is honorable is symbolized by the American
Flag at the top of the front of the hill. Loyalty to his brother is part
of the traditional values in which both brothers were raised. However,
the Flag has a second meaning. It reminds both brothers that retreat from
the battle is not part of the traditions each have admired, honored, and
lived in many lives. To their shame, the woman moves to the front of the
battle alone. She sorely misses her mate, but she will not turn back from
the challenge. She thinks she is alone and all is lost. The stepping stone
assures her all is not lost, she is not alone. She is being guided and
protected. The inability to see the stepping stones until she reaches
them is a message to have trust and faith in the spiritual forces that
guide and protect her. She has already taken the first step. But she hesitates,
for she sees that the next step takes her into the deeper waters and not
to the safety of land. This is where we want her to go. She must have
faith and trust we, symbolized by the steps, will be there, even in the
deepest and darkest of waters. She is to face the challenge and trust
her guidance. This is the way. Follow it."
People in therapy often find they have many dreams
during the course of their therapy. The dreams can be disturbing, for
therapy does trigger the bringing up of experiences and feelings one has
long suppressed. Even dreams long forgotten or ignored are frequently
"revisited" during the course of therapy. The following is a dream
Mary brought into therapy. It was a dream she´d had shortly after
her now 15 year old daughter had been born. It had been so disturbing,
she´d never forgotten it and she wanted to know the meaning of it.
"I am going to the parking lot where everyone in
town is to gather in emergencies. Most of the people in the town have
been destroyed by gases. Only some of us are left. We go underground,
to shelters built under the parking lot. We know it is only a matter of
time before the gases get us, too. I am holding my six month old baby
in my arms. I don´t want her to die such a horrible death so I give
her a pill and hold her close while I watch her die. Then, when she is
dead, I take a pill to kill me."
In hypnosis, Mary´s Higher Self was asked to
give the meaning of her dream. It responded: "Mary was hidden in darkness
and she needed to see the Light,"
"Oh, I see," Mary exclaimed, in hypnosis, She
[her daughter] helped me to do that. She was telling me to stop taking
the drugs because they would kill both of us. That´s why she keeps
telling me to quit drinking now!"
Mary had been into drugs at that time in
her life, but had, shortly after this dream, cleaned herself up at the
Betty Ford center. She´d stopped drinking, as well, but had started
drinking again later as she felt her drinking had never been as much of
a problem as the drugs. Mary´s Higher Self and her daughter believe
otherwise. Mary has developed, over many years of using alcohol to numb
both emotional and physical pain, a sensitivity to alcohol that does not
serve her well. It also helps her to avoid facing and dealing with the
issues creating her pain. This avoidance does not help her or her daughters;.
Children rarely listen to what they are taught by adults; they pay much
closer attention to what the adults around them DO. Mary knows this and
she is now working hard on "rooting out" the pain of her childhood;
pain she sought to mask and repress with alcohol, drugs, and "feel
Many people who are abused in childhood develop strong
sensitivities which enhances psychic abilities, although, often, the desire
to suppress their memories of the abuse also suppresses these abilities.
(Psychic means of the psyche, or soul, and such abilities are natural
to the human experience.) Mary is a perfect example of this. A "born
psychic", Mary´s childhood abuse helped to hone her abilities.
However, Mary´s subconscious mind knew that to open the door to
her psychic abilities was to open the door to the very emotions and memories
she had told it, by her words and actions, to suppress. (As with children,
our subconscious minds pay more attention to what we do than what we say.)
Almost all of the emotions and memories involved anger, and Mary was a
great one for suppressing and denying anger.
Mary was greatly surprised that suppressed anger was
the root of her depression. Like most people, Mary thought that depression
is sadness. While sadness - as well as shame, guilt, and other emotions
- can be part of depression, the root of depression is always anger. (And
the root of anger is always hurt.) The following dream is a dream Mary
had that symbolized both her inner anger and her suppression and denial
"I was boarding up the path in the house I grew
up in. I was boarding it up with boards from the back of the house to
the front. There is a dog somewhere in the back, but I never see him.
Suddenly, I notice a black widow spider on my hand. It is dead and I brush
it off. There is an ink outline of the spider on my hand where I brushed
it off. A wart starts to grow there."
Mary asked Pamela, her therapist, to interpret her
dream. While the meaning of the dream was clear to Pamela, she encouraged
Mary, after a brief discussion of the dream, to interpret the dream herself.
The challenge for all therapists is to NOT let their own knowledge either
direct or get in the way of the client or the therapy. It is IMPOSSIBLE
to know or understand as much about clients as they know and understand
themselves at inner levels of their minds and spirits.
In addition, the Higher Self of the client can best
determine how quickly or slowly that client is prepared to deal with inner
trauma. Pushing past the comfort and safety levels of a client´s
internal defenses is not therapeutic, it is abusive. It separates the
client from his or her well being as surely as the word "therapist"
separates into "the rapist"; which is, in our view, what a "pushy"
Pamela asked Mary what she thought her dream meant.
Mary said she didn´t know. NMR indicated that Mary did not know
consciously, but the subconscious and the Higher Self did know. Mary mentioned,
just as Pamela began to guide her into hypnosis, that she didn´t
think the dog was an important part of the dream. "I never really
saw it," she said, "it was just there."
In hypnosis, Mary was asked to give the meaning of
her dream. This is her response: "The dog is a wolf. The wolf is her
anger. She is seeking to stop the power of the wolf by keeping it in.
She is boarding up anger, afraid to let it up. The wolf has a very big
head that is growing. The anger is growing. The spider is the abuse that´s
died, it is [the effects] going away now. The past will always be there,
as shown by the ink outline on the hand, but it is just the impressions
that remain now from the abuse, as signified by the wart. She can make
the wart go away. So, too, will the impressions of the abuse go away,
after she lets out the wolf and faces the anger."
In dreams, our inner guidance lets us know what our
thoughts, beliefs, emotions, and choices have created and are creating.
We receive counsel, warnings, guidance, and messages of many kinds. Once
we realize the truly astounding extent of our inner wisdom, we can begin
to grasp the fact that our "real lives" are as full of signs,
omens, symbols, messages, and meanings as our dreams. As one client´s
Spirit Guides put it: "She is afraid we are not real. She is afraid
she is making us up and this is all a dream. We say life is but a dream
so what, pray tell, is the difference?"
Katie Ann is a client who lost her diamond tennis bracelet.
She also had, the night of the day she lost her bracelet, a dream about
going to her garage and finding her car missing. When she finally located
her car, the front end had been replaced by silly putty. In hypnosis,
Katie Ann was asked to move to the level of mind that would best tell
her the meaning of both her dream and the loss of her diamond bracelet.
The following is from Katie Ann´s Higher Self
"She has fear of standing out and being different.
She struggles between being who she is and who she pretends to be. This
is the meaning of the dream of the car and the message in the losing of
her bracelet. They symbolize the stripping away of her focus on the material
world, which is not where she is headed now. She gets bits and pieces
and glimpses of her true path, yet falls back into the old ways. This
struggle between pretending to be what she is not and her true self brings
stress. She needs to learn it does not matter what the outward appearance
is. The inside beauty is greater than any outside beauty anyone can attain.
If only you humans understood how important it is to heal on the inside,
not adorn the outside, then we would have great greatness on the earth.
She will trust one day and move forward and awake as though from a dream
and ask herself how it was so easy to have moved on."
Higher Selves, Spirit Guides, Angels, Astral Beings,
Higher Spirit - all bring messages for the subconscious mind to either
translate into words or present in symbolic form (or both) to the conscious
level of mind.
We, Dr. Harmon and Pamela, were thinking of giving
a BIG seminar. We´d tired of what Dr. Harmon calls the "circuit
riders"; people claiming to be healers, prophets, metaphysicians,
motivators, and hypnotists who give seminars for the sole purpose of "panning
gold". While many are sincere in their desire to help as well as make
money, and most offer, in part, valuable information, few are truthful
or knowledgeable in their entirety. Mike Todd was right, "Americans
are suckers for a good cause" especially if that good cause is a "quick
We wanted "big" money as much as any "circuit
rider" or the conglomerates behind them. We felt our cause was worthy.
We would make the money to publish and promote our book, which would tell
people what they really needed to know in order to empower themselves.
At the seminars, we could first offer the "quick fix". After all,
we are as masterful at hypnosis and motivation as anyone, even if we do
tell the truth. Next, we´d tell them why the "quick fix"
would work for some of them and why it might not work, or last, for others.
They wouldn´t like that part, of course, but we felt that truth,
alone, would be worth the price of admission. We planned to charge a small
amount, maybe $25, as we were planning a BIG seminar with LOTS of people.
As we begin to plot our promotional investment in this
"big" seminar, the tires and wheels on our new car parked in our
driveway in "safe" Rancho Mirage, California were stolen. Pamela
insisted we find out from Master of Spirit why the tires were stolen as
we know nothing ever happens by accident. EVERYTHING has a message and
a meaning. Master of Spirit, when asked about the theft of the tires and
"Unknown persons used by your mind to bring to
you an important message. The message is that if even one thing goes wrong
a powerful vehicle can be stopped from going forward. You have powerful
teachings to share. The manner being considered in which to teach them
will only be successful if everything goes perfectly. You do not have
the resources, at this time, to take this risk. You need to gain money,
not lose money. This plan is too risky. It is better to plan smaller meetings
you can afford. Build your finances in a smaller, safer way. This is the
message of the tires being stolen. Your finances, which must take you
forward, are vulnerable."
We heeded the message, practicing what we wanted to
share with the greater public through small, intimate, weekly group meetings.
It´s good we did, for we saw how unpopular, even unbelievable, our
message is. Despite the fact we are very successful at what we do, many
people refuse to believe what we do works, or if it works, that it can
work for them. They especially don´t want to have to deal with any
A person came to see us from the meetings. She asked
for a consultation with us together, as she wasn´t sure which of
us she wanted to see. While she´d come in for an emotional problem,
she mentioned she had an incurable condition, adding, "I´d give
anything to be free of this curse."
Thinking that hearing from someone who had already
healed the same "incurable" condition would encourage her, Dr.
Harmon slipped away to call a former client and asked her if she´d
be willing to come in and share her healing experience with this woman.
She graciously agreed, even bringing in her medical records as proof of
Our prospective client listened to this woman politely.
Then she examined the medical records. When she was done, she lifted the
records from her lap, handed them back to the woman, smiled thinly, and
said, "I´m sure you all mean well, but I don´t believe
a word of it. This condition is incurable. Everyone says so." She
got up out of the office chair and left without another word.
We were in shock. Dr. Harmon´s former client
calmly remarked, "That´s why I don´t tell anyone about
this anymore. They never believe me. Even my doctor thinks we must have
made a mistake in the original diagnosis, despite all the blood work that
proves we didn´t. He said maybe the lab made mistakes." She
shook her head. "I´ll write a testimonial for you guys, but
I doubt anyone will believe it. Just don´t ask me to talk about
it any more. I´m never talking about it again. I´ll start
to doubt myself and there´s no way I´m taking a chance on
reversing my healing. Besides, I´m tired of being thought of as
a fool or a liar."
We´re not even going to tell you the condition
this woman had. If we don´t, you might be inspired to seek healing
for an "incurable" condition you or someone you love has. If we
were to tell you the name of the condition, you would be likely to think,
´Oh, maybe that condition is curable, but I know this one isn´t.´
(Besides, if even a person´s own doctor won´t believe his
or her own medical tests, what good does sharing such stories do anyway,
except to inspire?)
We prefer you realize ALL conditions are curable if
the Higher Self says it is. Sometimes, the Higher Self says one must live,
or die, with a particular condition or limitation in order to grow or
to provide an opportunity for others to grow through it.
Healing and transformation, even when the Higher Self
says they can be accomplished, often take hard work at the inner levels
and change in the outer aspects of ones life. People don´t want
to hear that. They want to believe they can accomplish anything without
having to deal with their "emotional stuff" and without having
to "look within". We wish that were true. It would make it easier
for us, too.
Looking within is often exciting, frequently awe inspiring,
sometimes painful, but always enlightening; even when long cherished beliefs
of the conscious mind are rejected by the inner mind in favor of startlingly
unfamiliar notions. Like you, our clients are often confused by the vast
array of seemingly contradictory information "out there" on what
is "good" for them. Everyone seeks happiness, fulfillment, and
well-being, yet many people are uncertain as to their best choices for
No-one knows you and what works for you better than
you. No medical researcher or practitioner, nutritional expert or physical
fitness guru, can possibly know what would best heal or transform your
individual body and cells than your body and cells. No therapist, motivational
expert, or counselor can possibly know what will unblock or galvanize
you better than your own subconscious mind. No spiritual leader can possibly
know your unique spirit and its purpose better than your own Higher Self.
No psychic, seer, channel, or prophet has greater access to your inner
levels of knowing than you do
We share in these pages some of the information some
of our clients have found within their inner levels of knowing. While
we could fill all three books of this trilogy with the astounding and
astonishing information our clients have brought forward in trance states,
we won´t do so. We want to present just enough to inspire YOU to
seek your own inner truths.
It is worth noting not all clients follow their inner
wisdom; far from it. Many do not. On the other hand, many do. We note
that the degree of success in healing, transformation, or positive achievement
is directly proportional to the degree of subconscious belief and conscious
action. Helping people change their subconscious beliefs is fairly easy
with hypnosis and regression therapy. What people choose to do or believe
consciously about that change affects everything. It can even reverse
what has been accomplished.
Many people have great difficulty believing that "simply
talking" can heal or transform their bodies, minds, emotions, behaviors,
and reality. Yet, if thought creates reality, then changing thought changes
reality. The Yellow Emperor in 100 B.C. wrote, "The one who heals
the mind by talking is the superior doctor, and by talking only, the superior
doctor can heal all the diseases of the body, mind, and spirit."
YOU are the superior doctor for YOU and by talking
with all levels of YOUR mind, body, and spirit, YOU can accomplish anything
Following, we share information brought forward in
trance states by clients. Our words are in (parenthesis) and instead of
using the names Dr. Harmon or Pamela, we use "therapist". All
names used are, of course, fictitious.
