The Hypnotist

by Andrew Barton Paterson

A man once read with mind surprised
Of the way that people were “hypnotised”;
By waving hands you produced, forsooth,
A kind of trance where men told the truth!
His mind was filled with wond’ring doubt;
He grabbed his hat and he started out,
He walked the street and he made a “set”
At the first half-dozen folk he met.
He “tranced” them all, and without a joke
‘Twas much as follows the subjects spoke:

First Man
“I am a doctor, London-made,
Listen to me and you’ll hear displayed
A few of the tricks of the doctor’s trade.
‘Twill sometimes chance when a patient’s ill
That a doae, or draught, or a lightning pill,
A little too strong or a little too hot,
Will work its way to a vital spot.
And then I watch with a sickly grin
While the patient ‘passes his…

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

“The Little Boy and the Old Man

Said the little boy, “Sometimes I drop my spoon.”
Said the old man, “I do that too.”
The little boy whispered, “I wet my pants.”
I do that too,” laughed the little old man.
Said the little boy, “I often cry.”
The old man nodded, “So do I.”
But worst of all,” said the boy, “it seems
Grown-ups don’t pay attention to me.”
And he felt the warmth of a wrinkled old hand.
I know what you mean,” said the little old man.”

― Shel Silverstein

THE OLD PROVERBIAL RECOVERY

BOXING DAY 025

It takes time for the absent to assume their true shape in our thoughts. After death they take on a firmer outline and then cease to change.

STARWISE

Individuality ignored ***
Valid during many months: During this time you will have to cope with powerful outside forces that seem to take no regard of your individual ego. Your individuality will not be challenged so much as ignored, unless you stand in the way of these forces, in which case you may have some extremely discouraging experiences.Elements of your life that you have always counted on may begin to pass away in ways that are extremely difficult to understand. There will be no dramatic signs of social struggle and change, but the old order is passing away. What may be most difficult to accept is that there seems to be nothing that you can fight directly. It is as if many circumstances, relationships, possessions and various other conditions of your life have lost their right to be and are withering away. You can waste your time regretting this situation, thereby putting yourself into the same position, or you can come to terms with the new world and become part of it. This is one of the decisions you will have to make, although probably your internal conditioning will determine your decision in advance.Another side of this influence is that hidden aspects of your unconscious mind may flare up and begin to influence your life now. Elements of your personality that you prefer to keep hidden from others may become so evident that you can no longer avoid them.The only solution, therefore, is to deal with them. They are probably not as bad as you think anyway. It is not their intrinsic nature but repression that makes them seem bad. Now you must throw away the past conditioning that makes you reject these perfectly valid aspects of yourself.

Negative conclusions ***
Valid during many months: This is an extremely critical influence, made more so by the fact that it often remains unnoticed for a long time. Your belief in the good of something could lead you down the wrong path. Therefore it is important that you remain unusually sceptical of any miracle-cures or people who try to persuade you that they have all the answers to your life’s problems. Even if such promises seem fairly plausible and believable, you would be well advised to resist any powerful outside influences for the duration of this aspect. If you can be more open with those close to you this may lead to many new insights, while also relativizing some of your misunderstandings regarding what some people purport to be. This will create a basis of trust, which will allow others to be more open and authentic in return.A unexpected meeting with someone you havn’t seen for a long time, or some remark made by your parents or partner could trigger memories of a painful incident in your past. At that time you may have felt ridiculed, misunderstood or even deeply despised. Even if this incident occurred decades ago, the feelings of shame, fear or inadequacy associated with it could be awakened once again, giving you the opportunity to discuss the matter. This influence will make you much more understanding and tolerant of your own and others’ failings, helping you to accept these as an integral part of human existence. Only by doing this will you ensure that charlatans and self-proclaimed gurus have no influence over you.

Toughening up

***

Valid during many months: At this time you will make gradual but very profound changes in your life and create structures that will last a long time. You work at this task with great patience and attention to detail, because you are not working for today only. You are working for tomorrow as well.This influence confers great endurance, which enables you to work slowly over a long period of time to eliminate those elements of your life that have become unnecessary and limiting, replacing them with structures that are more relevant to your present activities.This is a period of slow but profound change within yourself also. Certain aspects of your character are changing and taking on a form that will last for many years. This change may be reflected in certain external changes in your public appearance or any other important activity in your life.You are likely to be very careful about everything that you do under this influence. Because you try not to waste anything, the people around you may think you are excessively conservative. But really you are just acting with great discipline.Whether or not it is necessary, you are able now to get along with very little in the way of material goods. And you have a phenomenal ability to contend with adversity if you have to. This influence has the effect of toughening you up considerably.A related effect is that persons in authority may give you considerable power to reorganize a structure at some level. They are acknowledging your disciplined, orderly approach to every task, which is characteristic of this influence.
