LIBRARY OF THE SUBCONSCIOUS

By Cagla Rifat

I have written this script for a client who does not believe in past lives.  It is written in a more metaphorical way (i.e. exploring “stories” within their subconscious mind) and so I have not made any specific mention of past lives in this script. 

Induction & Deepening of choice

Imagine in your mind’s eye now that you are standing before a large wooden door…the door has many geometric symbols…whilst you realise that these symbols are not your current language, the language that you speak in this day and age…you are aware that these symbols are a language…they are familiar to you…you know on some level that you understand their meaning…you are aware that the symbols are inviting you to open the door…

So you may like to now take a step forward and place your hand upon the large brass door handle…and slowly push the door open and step through…you find yourself in a vast library…the library contains many bookshelves, filled with books of all sizes and colours…books line every wall, from floor to ceiling…it is a place of wonder…the most beautiful library you have ever seen… you may begin to anticipate that within this library you will be able to find the answers to all the questions that you seek, as this library holds the immense knowledge of the entire Universe, including your very own life stories and wisdom…

You make your way along the vast corridor of the library to explore further…you come across a red door at the end of the hall…and you notice a geometric shape upon the door…the shape keeps changing…the shape is blue for a moment, then green, then yellow, then orange…the shape keeps changing before your very eyes…one moment it resembles a triangle, then a star, then a square, then a circle, then a diamond…you wonder with a quiet curiosity what is behind this door with the special ever changing shapes…

You may open the red door now and find yourself in a bright room with arching windows…the room is filled with a soft hazing light from the late afternoon sun…it feels splendidly calm and peaceful within this room…a perfectly relaxing reading room…there is a red carpet leading you to a wooden table in the middle of the room…and upon the table, lays one large book…you follow the carpet to the table and take a seat…the cover of the book is red, and embossed in gold on the cover of the red book are the words “The Records of (insert client’s name)”…You realise this a book of your records…the records of your very own subconscious mind, a vast library in itself, translated into tangible form…a book that you can easily flip through now to discover the contents of your deepest and inner most wisdom…

You open up the book to the first page, and you find that it is describing the issue we have been discussing…the issue of (insert relevant issue)…the book instructs you to really feel into the emotions of this issue… so really feel into the emotions of (insert relevant issue) now…amplifying the feelings of (???) as much as you can…and when you feel you are completely immersed within the emotion of this issue, let me know by saying ‘yes’…

Good…you are doing so well…soon I will count down from 5 to 1 and when I reach 1 you will turn the book to the next page…upon turning the page your subconscious mind will present you with a story which best metaphorically describes the beginnings of this issue…this story may present itself to you in many ways…it may be images, thoughts, or just a sense or knowing of what is happening… the subconscious mind loves to work in metaphor…it is completely free from the limits of the real world…the constructs of space and time…so trust whatever comes up for you…as your subconscious mind is now giving you the very unique and special opportunity to understand what lies within your inner most world…

You know that you are the character within this story…for this is your book you see…and in it lies all the answers… So now I am speaking to that part of the mind that knows now and asking it to relate down to this period of time the connection to all experiences leading to the wisdom which the mind knows will now relate to the present use of the mind that you’re experiencing…connecting and developing to a fully conscious level from your own subconscious storehouse of memory…all the wisdom from the learning of that experience…and indeed all other experiences….
5, getting ready to turn the page now…4, you subconscious mind making the connections for you now…3, back and back and further back we go…2, to the answers we seek… and 1, turn the page and be fully immersed within the story now (click fingers)…allow the images and sensations to come…

  • Do you feel yourself to be inside or outside?
  • Tell me about your surroundings…
  • Are there others there or are you alone?
  • What are you feeling?

(Get a sense of the ISE)

We are now going to the last day of that life…3, 2, 1, be there now!

(Explore death scene)

  • How old are you?
  • Where are you?
  • What’s happening

How do you feel about the life/story you have just experienced?

Now I want you to go back to the beginning of the story we have just experienced…You will see another version of yourself now coming to meet this particular story version of yourself…however she comes to you is perfect…  She has so much love and compassion upon her face…she knows exactly what you have been experiencing because she has experienced these emotions too…she has come to help you integrate the knowledge you have gained today… she is the gatekeeper of the subconscious mind and knows exactly what to do with all this new knowledge that your subconscious mind has offered you today… you may like to think of her as your higher self… with her expanded consciousness she comes to offer you these resources too now… you can sense that her love is unconditional and that she is here to help you in any way that she can…

She hands you a backpack…and starts passing you books…books on love…compassion…(insert other resources here)…one by one you receive the books and place them in your backpack…she instructs you to wear the back pack now…you feel the weight of the backpack upon your shoulders…so heavy with newfound knowledge and clarity…your higher self places her hand upon the backpack and you feel the backpack gradually lightening…as she magically disperses the contents of the back pack within your very being…you are feeling lighter and lighter…but at the same time feeling stronger and stronger…filled with strength, compassion etc. etc of all the resources she has given to you…absorbing all that wonderful knowledge your higher self has presented you with now…

Now with all these resources within you, you can rewrite this story to create the circumstances that you’d like to experience…play these events how they would’ve happened the first time you had access to these resources then.  Have it replay how you want it to be…and let me know when you‘ve finished…

  • What happened this time? How do you feel?

(Help client reframe if necessary)

So again, we are going to go to the end of this story but this time with the resources and experience you’ve just gained from your higher self…3, 2, 1…be there now!

(Explore death scene again)

As you reflect back on the story with this new perspective, what can you tell me?


I want you now to thank your higher self for coming back for you and assisting you on this journey of self-discovery…and allow your higher self now to tell this version of you how much she loves you…you know that your higher self will always be there for you, always bringing you whatever resources you need to live your life with love, wisdom, compassion, empowerment and truth (insert relevant factors).

Just for now say goodbye, and prepare to come out of this story, and back into the library as the you who is reading the story…I will count up from 1 to 5..and when I reach 5 you will close the book and come back to the current time and place within the library, noticing the book is much thicker now…you realise the books of resources your higher self had gifted you has been added to this big book of your personal records…allowing you access to these resources at any time you wish for they are permanently part of your inner library of knowledge now and forever…you are feeling confident, safe, loved and empowered…having experienced the magical learnings and wisdoms of this ancient story book…
