It starts with a whisper. A velvety buzz in my head, smoothing out the wrinkles in my brain as I send you off to sleep. The sound of my own voice is soothing and familiar, and the vibrations of my speech are the purring of a cat. Words are slipping past my lips and I both lose and gain complete focus and clarity—autopilot. Thinking, breathing, speaking, I know I must be doing all of the above but I’ve lost the awareness as if I’m deep in a dream. I feel lighter and then I see into your mind, every little synapse firing off as I hypnotize you and sink into your subconscious… our subconscious. By now I am in another world, a world in which I can put myself into trance with you and yet still I control the ride.
Blissful, dreamy, drowsy, soft, warm, safe. I give myself these gifts.
