Reverse Speech and its Uses in Therapy

Reverse Speech, the name given to
backward messages hidden in human speech, has amazing
applications in the therapeutic area. Reverse Speech taps into
deeper areas of the mind and as such is capable of revealing
information unknown to the conscious mind but available to the
amazing resources of the unconscious mind.
Your unconscious mind knows all
about you. It knows your likes and dislikes. It knows and
understands your emotional and psychological needs. It
understands what causes your physical ailments and it even knows
solutions to various problems, psychological and physical.
Sometimes the unconscious mind can sabotage our success as it
follows pre-programmed behavioural patterns. There are various
modalities that can tap into certain areas of the unconscious
mind but none is as effective as Reverse Speech and this is
because you can actually hear the unconscious talking to you in
its own audible voice.
To give an example of this, in one
case a client was talking forwards about moving forwards in her
life. She had a speech reversal, however, that said, I am
wanting new grief. In another case, a businessman wanting
to build his business had a speech reversal that said I am
stupid. Following new muck. And yet another case sees a
woman saying in reverse, My need for pain. All of these
cases show the unconscious mind sabotaging conscious desires and
following predetermined negative patterns. Without dealing with
the unconscious sabotage, no amount of therapy will change these
peoples outcomes in the physical world.
So, how do you deal with unconscious
sabotage and change the outcomes? Well, amazingly, Reverse
Speech will give the answer for this as well. Just as the
unconscious can sabotage us, it can also show us how to change
this sabotage if asked the right questions. In one case as a
woman talked about a deteriorating financial situation, a speech
reversal occurred that said Work on my grief. In
another case as a woman was talking about improving her current
state of depression, she said in reverse, Need more sunlight.
In both of these cases the unconscious spoke directly and gave
solutions for current problems.
In another rather ominous case, a
wife was talking about ways to improve her marriage. A speech
reversal occurred that said, Heal the love while youre
living. This reversal gave a sense of urgency about the
matter. Only a few short days later, the woman was almost killed
in a domestic dispute. The reversal had been spot on in its
Reverse Speech can pinpoint areas of
concerns in other ways as well. For example as one client talked
about her a recurring pattern of failure in relationships, a
speech reversal occurred that said I have been molested.
This reversal pinpointed a series of events in her past that had
affected her ability to have healthy lasting relationships, thus giving us a
specific area to work on. Another client, as he talked about
his need for love, had a reversal that simply said, The
childhood. This also gave us, the therapist and client, a
specific area to work on and explore.
One client, who was suffering from
asthma, had a puzzling reversal that said, Under the floor,
Puss in my head. So, the clients husband looked under
floor boards of the house and found 18 inches of mould growing
under the house. They cleaned out the mould and the symptoms of
her asthma dramatically reduced. Reverse Speech was able to tap
into the unconscious mind and find information unknown to the
Some clients use Reverse Speech to
give them insight into personal issues. For example as one young
man talked about his current relationship, he had a speech
reversal that said, This is shallow, abandon it. His
unconscious was tapping into deeper wisdom inside that knew this
relationship was not good for him. On the same vein a woman had
some uncertainties about her current relationship. Her speech
reversals confirmed her concerns and said, Yeah walk away.
She followed the advice of her reversals and within a very short
space of time she met another man who she is now very happy
Reverse Speech has proven itself to
be an amazing source of help and information in the 16 years
that I have been using it in therapy. This article only
cursorily glances at its uses and applications. In further
articles I will explore this area deeper. To try Reverse Speech
