The February Man

…or maybe he was the October Man.

For my birthday, I would like to offer you all a present!  And it will be a story in my own words, which means that I won’t get it all right, but that’s OK.

Milton Erickson told the story of a client who was expecting her first child, and was happy about that, but concerned about her own parenting abilities, because her relationship with her own parents had not been great, and she had been raised by governesses most of her childhood.

And so, through a series of trance experiences, Erickson took her back through that childhood, and gave her the February Man, February being the month of her own birth.  And this man became a parent to her, and gave her all of the skills that she needed to be the parent she wanted to be to her own child.

That story has a very happy ending!  And so do others…which you can wonder about…

February Man…October Man…it’s all good!

Here’s a little dance that you can do with me to celebrate my birth-day today!

Gratitude Dance

Be well, and at peace,

Phil
