    Critical, thanks for posting that link. Those photos and the accompanying description are beyond cute! I suspect those two will be joined at the hip for the next 12-15 years!

    How sweet. I like the way a puppies feet smell.

    nennie, my long ago, Yorkie smelled and turns out she had a skin allergy. Diet change and allergy meds cured it.

    I would appreciate your opinions on this matter. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I wasn't sure where to place this, but thought there might bet a lot of traffic here.

    I'm considering going to a hypnotist. The purpose is to help me find something I lost about 8 months ago. I need the item I lost for business reasons. I have searched and searched for it. I have looked everywhere, but I am very careful with things like this, so I just can't imagine where I put it. I just wonder if I know somewhere deep inside.

    I was hypnotized once many years ago and I know it worked on that occasion. I won't go into the details. It was at a seminar and was about deep relaxation techniques.

    Before going I thought I would run it by you guys. I value your opinons.

    I've never been able to give my mind over, like that, but if you think it has worked for you in the past, what do you have to lose? It is your decision to make. If you think it works, why are you still waiting? Trust your own instincts. Listen to your inner voice. I go wrong when I don't!

    I guess I just wanted other people's experiences. I think I'm scared.

    Years ago when I was hypnotized, I was in a group seminar. I was about 19 years old. I didn't even realize what was going on. I was there with co-workers and went along with the deep relaxation instructions. At a certain point, the guy told us to get out of our seats and walk to the front of the seminar room. There were at least 200 people in there! I would NEVER do that, but I couldn't help myself. My friends grabbed my shirt and told me to sit down, but I ignored them and marched right up to the podium with about 6 other people who were also hypnotized.

    The speaker then told the audience that we were hypnotized, because we had strong imagnitive visualizations. He said he could direct us to recall things in our subconscious. When he said that, I got very panicky. I don't know why, because I'm not aware of anything scary that is buried in my subconscious, but it frightened me. If it's there, I don't want to know. lol
    The guy then quickly said, he wouldn't do that though. So, I calmed down.

    Then he went to each of us and for me he asked my last name. He then directed me to forget my last name. I did. I truly could not remember my last name. He then told me to recall it again. It was very bizarre. I felt very odd about it ever since.

    I guess that's why I'm apprehensive. There is potential for it to go well, but my bad experience in the past still lingers.

    I can understand why you would be apprehensive. I think I would have been very uncomfortable as well. It is NOT a good feeling when someone else is in control of your actions!

    If I were in your position and really wanted to find that item I would go for it, but I would insist on having a friend of family member with me. Preferably one that is less susceptible to hypnosis. That way you won't be in danger of the person asking you for information that could compromise you personally, professionally, financially, or in any other way!!

    I never have been good at visualization so I'm not a good candidate for hyponosis, which is odd because usually creative types are good at visualization.

    I've studied hypnosis in psychology class and it's pretty interesting. It's not like voodoo or magic, or at least that's what I was told. I'm not sure after hearing about Debb's experience. It's just supposed to be a relaxing and focusing technique. It can help you retrieve memories but only if you put something in your memory in the first place. For instance, if you were in a car crash and needed help remembering the license plate number of the car that hit you, you might be able to remember looking in your rear view mirror and seeing the plate of the car that hit you. However, if you didn't look back to see the plate, or if the tag was on the back of the car, not on the front, where you couldn't see it, no amount of memory recall techniques will help you remember it.

    I would never allow myself to be hypnotized, although I do find it very interesting.
    It's the control thing. I'm big on having control over myself at all times, control over my life, my decisions, my finances, etc.
    The thought of losing that control, or the ability to grab it back at will, would terrify me.

    With something like hypnosis, I think there are the circus sideshow-types, and there are the serious professionals. I think you've go to really know what you're getting yourself into. I'd be more suspect of the seminar-type. Seminars, I think, are there to convince you to "buy into" something....be it financial, or some kind of mindset.

    I am in zero danger of being convinced to join a cult! My sister is much more suggestible and easy. Always has been. You can suggest that she feels something, or smells something, and she believes it! Makes no sense to me, at all.

    I swear, one of us has GOT to be adopted!
