Intuition, gut feelings, hunches. . . Call it what you like, we all possess unconscious wisdom. And, as the stories in this book make clear, that wisdom has the power to heal. -A couple use their unconscious knowledge of each other to trade identities in trance-and, as a result, resolve their marital problems. -A woman progressively loses her sight rather than "see" painful aspects of her past, then recovers her vision as she confronts and resolves the history she has long denied. -A woman in deep trance endures a five hour surgery without anesthesia, even stopping her own bleeding on cue. These extraordinary true stories are typical of the solutions possible when a patient's unconscious mind is brought to the task of healing. Drawn from the practice of internationally noted family therapist and hypnotherapist David L. Calof, these ten tales give us remarkable insight into the powers of the human mind.
