Choose how to change from the Catalogue of Magic

The catalogue of magic uses a common experience, looking through a merchandise catalogue. It invites the reader to imagine that different sections of the catalogue offer different types of merchandise. Each type of merchandise engages with your unconscious mind. Thinking about the nature of the merchandise encourages the listener to think about how it can be used to change things. Then the script develops this idea of change and leads the listener into considerations of how and when and why they can change.

The induction is part of the story and glides seamlessly into the therapy section. The therapy section offers four different ways that the listener can imagine changing their life forever. The basic metaphor is 'no matter how your picture was formed... it can be changed'.


A friend of mine told me a story that I think might interest you...dissociation
it seems my friend received a large package in the post one day... a really heavy package bound up in cardboard... but it had no sender's address on it... My friend took it inside...
and sat down in comfortable chair and carefully opened the wrappings... and inside was a merchandise catalogue... a thick book with glossy pictures of all sorts of things for sale...
and on the front cover was the name... A Catalogue of Magic... and it said... 'Look within' ... the front cover had a picture... it was hard to make out what it was...
I wonder if you can imagine a spiral... and if that spiral was to start slowly turning... how you might find yourself falling into that spiral... feeling yourself going down and down... and as you go down and down... how all the colours can begin to fade... like lights going out in city at night... and how that feeling comes of gently sinking... safe and secure... down and down... and how each breath can make you more relaxed... more and more relaxed... and you can imagine falling... sinking... drifting away... and as all the lights go down you can become so relaxed... nothing to do... but breathing gently now...VSpiral induction
and maybe you can feel how deeply you are relaxing with each breath out... and how good it can be to just let go... and enjoy being relaxed... lying there... listening to my voice... relaxing ever deeper and deeper...Relaxation
memoryand maybe you can imagine a large book... and how you open a book... and turning the pages... and seeing a page inside
And on that page are the words: 'I wonder if you are artistic?'
And there on the page is a picture of an artist's frame for sale, and canvas to paint on, and paint in tubes and pots and buckets.
And you know, in a book of magic... the normal rules don't apply... this canvas was able to sense what you wanted, what you needed to paint, and you find yourself in front of that frame, with a blank canvas in front of you... and you look at that the canvas and feel attracted to it... to want to change it... and even as you think about what to put on it... the brushes move on their own and start painting... and they paint a picture of something that is bothering you... and just let it happen... and you might be surprised at what you can see... and as you watch the brushes fill in more and more details... and you can just look and wonder... and there it is ... a picture of the thing you want to be rid of... and you can look at it... sitting there... outside of you, separated from you... just waiting... and you find a brush in one hand...K
