One day not so long ago, Dr. J, on his way to one of Dr. Bunny’s hypnotherapy workshops, got stuck in the elevator on his way to her 2nd floor office. Dr. J, being Dr. J,  calmly looked around and noticed the phone – picked it up – and called the fire department.

He called Dr. Bunny as well and explained his situation. She asked if there was anything she could do… nothing. He was waiting for the fire department to open the door.

In the moment, he realized his first reaction was anger. Then he settled down to meditate. Fireman and elevator repairmen kept knocking on the door and calling him. (Apparently the elevator hadn’t left the ground floor.)

“Do you need anything… Are you okay?” They kept asking him. Okay, no, he was meditating – don’t interrupt his beautiful meditation! He didn’t want to talk… he knew he needed to conserve energy.

He is a great example of how meditation works! As Dr. Bunny says, he dealt with his dilemma brilliantly! By the way, Dr. J now uses hypnotherapy in his practice and finds that it truly helps his patients!

Tune in to today’s funny, poignant show and find out more details like how long Dr. J was in the elevator, what went through his mind during this experience, and what he did afterwards. You won’t forget it!
