I am feeling very ecstatic while writing this and I cannot contain my excitement and happiness because of what happened with this client.
Work: Uber Driver
Background: Indian, Sikh.
Reason for seeking PLR: No reason just want to see what will come up.
Although during the pre-talk we uncovered many issues which were resolved later as I understood his problems more deeply. But he wanted the PLR to not have any theme… he just wanted a deep guided meditation to see what happens.
I will write this session in the form of a story because the client did not tell me much while the scenes were happening. He only told me everything later. So we had 2 sessions of total 6 hours in many small parts of 1-1.5 hours where he would go into the trance and completely ignore my instructions, do whatever he needs to do and then came back and told me what had happened.
His hypnotizability score is 9/10 and dominant senses were auditory and kinesthetic.
I focused mainly on “feeling” the while light and sensations of the garden rather than visualizing.
For the most part he was just Astral travelling. He told me he went to a lot of places. At first, all the places of his childhood and younger years. After that he traveled to Kailash mountain. But was just standing far from it, looking at it.
Later he went to the moon and described the craters in detail. Next he was flying in endless space and did not want me to disturb him from there.
On the second day, he once again found himself on the moon. He then saw his mother whom he he had lost in 1990, smiling at him. His mother’s spirit told him he had done a good job taking care of siblings (he was regretful that he couldn’t take care of them).
The next thing he saw blew my mind and also humbled me. He went to the Kailash mountain again, now floating on top of it, in the meditation pose and then he saw something dark blue swirling on top of the mountain.
We must have “stared” at it for a good 15 minutes. I wanted to know why he is going to the Kailash mountain repeatedly. I told him to ask the question to this swirling energy. A big smile spread on his face and tears started rolling from his rapidly moving eyes.
“Ardhanarishvara”, he said! “Lord Shiva and Goddess Parvati is there.”
I couldn’t ask him to do anything past this point because I just didn’t know how to react. I let him bask in the holy light of the deities. Hoping to catch a trickle of blessings for myself as well. He stayed there for a good time.
He told me later that he was feeling anger coming from the Lord. He used to worship Shiva when he was young. When his mother died, he stopped because he became angry with him.
Lord Shiva actually showed him that he had been there and he will always be there. The anger he was feeling was just his own anger being mirrored to him.
Also, he always thought he was gone for only 5-7 minutes when he was actually under for more than 1.5 hours.
He said he is feeling like a completely different person after these sessions. The world is looking like a candy shop with so many colors and positivity all around!
Every session is a new surprise! And every client brings something new for us to learn… sometimes you just have to go with the flow.
