If I were a hypnotist…

If I were a hypnotist, I know where I would want to take my clients.  I know it sounds a little odd, but it would be for good reason. I would have them breathe deep, and ask the necessary questions so that they could return to childhood. Oh wait,  I hear the scoffers already, “I had a horrible childhood”.  Ok, even if there was a horrid mess in childhood, I would search for that one moment where there was still one little inkling, just an inkling, of hope. Why? Well we seem to forget about this treasured place.  What would you be like, if you could forget the feeling of “left out”, “not good enough”, “compared to”, or “overlooked”. I would find the “before” place, where there lived

possibility

innocence

and forgiveness.  

Where there lived abandoned, unashamed awe for beauty, just like we read in the fairy tales.  

That is where I’d take the world.  And if I could gather from that perfect place and pull into the reality of the present, I would wrap this gift in the finest of wrapping paper and throw the best, intimate party one has ever known.  I would record these words from Jesus “Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven”, because we need this reminder in every phase of life.  

A child’s humility lies not in thinking she is nothing.  No, a child who is humble knows she is worthy of love. She freely ASKS…and receives.
