After years of denying that something strange had been a part of my life since childhood, I made the fateful decision in the summer of 1996 to seek counseling. It was the utmost importance to find a qualified psychological counselor, who was licensed and credited to conduct regressive hypnosis, and at the same time had an open mind to explore all possibilities. I found the perfect person in Patricia (Pat) McCormack-Kerr. During three years of counseling I had 12 regressive hypnosis sessions. Below are Pats exact and precise notes from my first two hypnosis sessions. Contrary to what skeptics and debunkers state, you will see that Pat never once led me in any way with any question or implanted any ideas in my head. All questions asked by Pat are in a direct response to my answers. Please note that at times Pat also includes in her notes my emotions and physical responses during the hypnosis sessions. Sandy

Pat also contributed the foreword to my book “Different Child”.

September 24, 1996
Hypnosis

After the initial trance induction, the following occurred:

Pat…You will see yourself in a house in which you once lived

Sandy…I can’t see myself

P…What’s happening? What do you see?

S…I see blackness. I’m in a room asleep. Now I see green. In my eyes

P…Where are you?

S…I don’t know. I don’t see much of anything

P…Do you hear anything?

S…No. I can’t see me or anything

P…What are you experiencing now?

S…I see a green light…or maybe a green cloud.

P…What are you feeling? (Sandy is breathing faster now).

S…I don’t know what it is but there’s white in there…white light is intermixing….it feels like I’m spinning. Stop this!

P…OK. Just let that go and breathe slowly. Be in your safe place and breathe slowly and let yourself relax.

S…It’s ok now. I see mostly green now. It’s mostly white in front of the light. I can’t see anything really.

P…Does this remind you of anything?

S…It reminds me of something I saw on TV once. But now something is coming up from the bottom. It has white behind it. It looks like something is trying to form now. But I can’t see……I’m not spinning much now.

P…Just relax and breathe slowly. Let all that go if you want to and just relax.

S…It looks like green appeared and is going away. It’s dark, but it’s like trying to open my eyes…..and

I feel all tingly. It goes with the spinning but I’m not spinning much now. Now I’m not feeling as tingly.

P…What are you feeling now?

S…Not tingly….tense.

P…What’s happening now?

S…Nothing. It’s dark. I don’t know why. I don’t feel tilted anymore. Now it’s right again. Can I relax?

P…Yes, just let yourself and all your muscles relax.

S…Can I leave?

P…Yes, just find yourself in your safe place relaxing.

S…The green is back and the white left.

P…Does this mean anything to you?

S…Something moves from left to right in front of me. The white is behind and fades it out. It looks like someone walking in front of me. The green could be like somebody walking.

P…What’s happening now?

S…It’s gone. The green is here again in different form…..I don’t know what it is

P…(Sandy begins to cry) What is making you feel sad?

S…I’m not sad.

P…What are you feeling?

S…Can I relax?

P…Yes, just breathe slowly and let yourself relax. Be in your safe place if you wish.

S…I never saw a house. The green is here then it goes away. It changes shape. It’s like it was a person…like it’s looking over me…

P…Are there any other sensations?

S…Heavy ….like I’m stuck. I see something …I noticed it, but I didn’t know what it was….like trying to see a light in the bottom of my eyes…a white light ….

P…(Sandy shakes his head….looks stressed)

S…When I relax, the green goes away. It tries to pop up but not the same shape…or maybe like it’s hollow or dark in the middle…the green changes all the time. It looks like it is walking past me. I didn’t like it.

P…At this time, I instructed Sandy to relax, be in his safe place and come out of trance. During the processing that took place, he continued to cry and was obviously feeling a lot of emotion. He stated that he felt the tears during the trance, but he didn’t know why he was crying. It just felt weird and strange to him. He explained that this had not felt like he felt when he did meditation on his own. This was very different. He stated: “I couldn’t get past the green. I don’t know why I am feeling this way!” He continued to cry and soon the session ended.

October 21, 1996

After the initial trance induction and reinforcing the safe place, the following took place. I had again instructed him to view a house in which he lived as a child, then to see what was happening there and tell me about it. Sandy

Pat…(Sandy began to show emotion and was breathing faster) What’s happening?

Sandy…Something looks like headlights. It’s green mist…the clouds are back.

P…Freeze this scene for a moment and ask your unconscious for information about it.

S…All right.

P…Run the scene very slowly so you can clearly see what it is.

S…Everything feels all right now. I see green around the edges…..earlier it looked like something…like car lights in the air….far away…blurry headlights

P…Are they connected to anything?

S…It looks like I saw someone….to the left….tall and skinny…but just for a second…..

P…Describe what you saw.

S…Tall and skinny, real skinny

P…Did you see a face?

S…A head.

P…Describe it.

S…Bald….real quick…I felt like I was in a room and there’s a door or light like I’m lying down

P…Uh huh…

S…And this figure person whatever all of a sudden appeared to the left…standing up…to the right of him looks like …felt like a room…there’s a light back there…

P…What does the room look like?

S…It’s just a room…not a lot in it

P…Anything significant there?

S…Just dark and I see green just dark. The room feels round…feels like something on the wall but I can’t see it….

P…(Sandy began breathing faster) It’s ok you are safe….you can return to the safe place anytime you would like

S…I’m not scared….Nothing is happening now…it’s like everything is still…maybe somebody is there…but it’s more like I’m alone…that’s all right

P…Do you feel like you can get up?

S…Yes

P…Would you like to?

S…I can’t be touched …Ok!…a bunch of windows there….square windows…bunch all connected…left to right all of a sudden…

P…Can you see out?

S…No..it looks like darkness…all of a sudden I was someplace then shoooo the windows backed up…I don’t know

P…(Sandy begins crying.) Do the windows feel important?

S…My head felt weird…Oh God…all of a sudden….it was so cool, then it was just there in my face…this big head…looking at me…reminds me of that thing I saw when I did the self hypnosis after the last session…I was starring at that face…I didn’t like it

P…Just let yourself relax…let your shoulders and neck relax.. Breathe slowly.

S…It was so cool …going along fine…I was trying to see….the green stuff…mist…less than before…It was hard to see…then this big green tall thing…maybe a person figure…..Oh man! In a round room…then green again…and lights close together at the first….I had a hard time seeing…I was feeling more than seeing….the round room…I could feel the walls…then the windows and then dark…I tried to see though them but I couldn’t …all of a sudden that damn face….right here (indicated close to his face). I don’t like that face! Then all of a sudden it all changed again….and there was a different feeling…instantly….something came over me all of a sudden…Looked like a praying mantis face with big eyes, not round, no eye lids…

P…I instructed Sandy to relax and come out of trance. He said his head had hurt but was fine now
