Multiversal Meditation: for Work-Related Stress

"The world is too much with us; late and soon,  

Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers."

--William Wordsworth, c. 1802 

Many of the clients in my general psychology practice may loosely be included under the description of "the worried well." They often respond to Multiversal hypnotic meditation with dramatic results which are similar to the personality changes observed in people who have undergone a Fundamentalist experience of  "salvation" (Gibbons & de Jarnette, 1972), because it gives them an entirety different perspective on life. 

Bill, a high school graduate in his late twenties, was formerly employed as a "picker" in a large, semi-automated warehouse where his performance was continually being timed according to how fast he could fill the orders he was given. Currently, he was employed as a delivery driver, but the pace was similarly hectic. He was happily married to a medical receptionist, and they had no children. 

I had been seeing Bill on Saturday afternoons on a weekly basis for about three months, to help him to de-stress after a long week, when he mentioned that his wife of six months noticed how "mellowed out" he was when he came home after a trip to the Multiverse. He added with a smile that they often spent the rest of the afternoon making love, which he had sometimes been unable to do before he started to see me because of his chronic job-related stresses. In view of the fact that the present results are a by-product of my client's repeated trips to the Multiverse, specific suggestions for sexual enhancement would probably be highly effective; but in view of of the couple's age and the relatively short time they had been married, suggestions of this type were obviously not needed.

Wordsworth was surely correct in  his observation in 1802 , but if only he could see us now!
