Londonlifecoach Pirate Wooden Leg1

The very first time I got my head around hypnosis was when someone explained it to me this way. She said: “Think of wet dreams. It’s your unconscious mind creating a fantasy. But your mind can’t tell the difference between a dream and reality. And this is why you wake up having to change the sheets.” I found this incredibly fascinating. And it got me thinking, what if I could replicate this onto my partner’s mind? But that’s another topic for a different kind of blog.

Phantom Pregnancy

Not very long ago, a good friend of mine was telling me about a dog she cares for. This dog was going through what’s called a ‘phantom pregnancy’. The dog was having all the signs of pregnancy but was not pregnant. Of course this doesn’t only apply to dogs; it applies to us humans as well.

londonlifecoach-pregnantmanWomen (and very rarely men – see image) going through false pregnancy would exhibit tiredness, vomiting, breast inflammation, increasing abdominal size, absence of menstrual periods and would lactate. Many would even go into labour and deliver nothing! Queen Mary I is one of the most famous historical figures to  have suffered from imaginary pregnancy.

Wet Dreams

When my friend told me about this, I thought it was somehow similar to having a wet dream because the mind is creating a physical bodily reaction based simply on imagination. But my friend had a different point of view. She said that having a wet dream, our body is simply ejaculating a substance that’s already been fabricated prior to the dream. However with phantom pregnancy, the body is creating substances and symptoms that didn’t previously exist!

Believe

My friend was right. And depending on how you employ it, this could be a fascinating opportunity or a devastating occurrence.

What happens in these scenarios is that the mind tricks the body into believing it’s pregnant, and vice versa. The women (or men) believe without a shadow of a doubt that they are pregnant which reflects on their bodily functions which in turn reflects back onto their mind’s beliefs. Now imagine if you could leverage this in other ways. The possibilities are endless! I could list countless examples on how this could be utilised (one of them is how to get your partner to change the sheets). But instead I’ll tell you one final story.

Wooden Leg

A patient once walked into a well known therapist’s practice and he was suffering from great pain in his leg. No one else knew how to treat this patient. Because the patient was experiencing pain… in his wooden leg! Then the therapist asked him one question that made the pain disappear. He asked: “If you could use your mind to create this fake pain, couldn’t you use your mind to create much better things?”

Until next time,

    Life coaching, simply put is the ability to create awareness amongst people of their actual needs and the ways in which they can achieve them. This field derived its inspiration from sports, where coaches tended to every doubt and thought of the player and motivated him or her to perform beyond his or her abilities.
