January 22,1985 will be a day I will never forget. It had taken me quite some time to build my confidence enough to undergo hypnosis. I had been wanting to try hypnosis for quite some time, but the only people that I knew that had undergone this were in the books that I had read, I didn't know any real people that had "been there"

The sunsets behind the Egyptian sphnix

Earlier in the fall of 1984, Tom had placed an ad in the local paper stating that he could stop someone from smoking by the use of hypnosis. Seeing this ad, I thought about it for about a month, and finally, after working up my courage I went to see him.

This was back in 1984, very few people believed this stuff back then, and I will have to admit that I was more than just a little nervous about discussing this with a professional in a town where everyone knew me.

"Have you done any past life regressions?" I asked.

"Well, yes I have done three." Was his nervous reply.

Needless to say, this didn't build my confidence any. I thought about it for about three months and finally decided to give it a try.

After putting most of my fears behind me, I scheduled an appointment with Tom. My wife who had always been open to a lot of new ideas, had in the past few months suddenly become more fundamentalist in her thinking and was extremely opposed to my new way of thought, saying that because of what I was doing I would surely wind up in Hell. Since I didn't believe in Hell I kept my appointment with Tom.
