The Unconscious Spoke

The Unconscious.
Her Subject would like to thank Athena’s help and support in all photographs.

Her Subject was curious what a conversation between his unconscious and Athena would be like. He asked Athena using hypnosis to give it a try.
The unconscious could be very passive and not very talkative, so Her Subject asked Athena to prepare a set of questions. The topics could be something normally too awkward to talk about.

One evening before going to sleep, Her Subject thought to urge Athena to start the conversation. “Remember we talked about it? When are you going to do it? I’m very curious what my unconscious would say.”

Athena stared at Her Subject for a moment studying him. “The amnesia I gave you worked. It was never very effective. I thought you would remember.”

Memory started to come back to Her Subject. He remembered counting up awakening. Then he remembered vaguely some suggestions to forget. Athena really went out her way on that one. The memory were stored in a high security room, then shrunk, vaulted, made into vanishing smoke… Her Subject remembered the amnesia suggestions went on forever… layers and layers of it. He tried to retrieve the content of that conversation… but that was impossible. He got a headache and tired all of the sudden… So tiring trying to remember…

But he was so curious. What did they talk about?

Athena went on. “Your unconscious was very much your true self. Not too much different from talking to you now. Everything was expected. I don’t feel the need to do it again.”

“If you want to talk, your conscious should be present,” Athena added.

“Did I ask you to give me amnesia?”

“No. That was my decision. Why? It just felt to be the right thing to do then.” “What was said was between me and your unconscious. It didn’t concern you, and you don’t need to know.”

Her Subject was startled. “A secret between myself and you that I don’t know? What was it? Did it bother you that you that much you don’t want to do it again? It doesn’t make any sense to me.”

The rapid questions agitated Athena. She snapped her fingers putting Her Subject to sleep.

Point taken. Athena didn’t want to talk. Her Subject would not pursue this matter any further. He would wait until Athena is ready.
