Susan Foxabout this book: Day in and day out you paint a smile on your heart before you visit your comatose loved one. Off you go to the rehab center to visit your heart's passion. You settle into the chair next to your precious darling's bedside. But it's getting harder and harder to feel hopeful. What you crave is to see your sweet one's eyes open and connect.
The Coma Whisperer shares a story based on true events about eight-year-old Jonathan. Playing by himself near the river at a family picnic, soon someone missed him. Found underwater in the river, paramedics revived him. Massive brain damage rendered him a vegetable.
After five weeks in a coma, the pastor at our church told the congregation about the drowning accident. They prayed for a miracle. Nobody knew how to bring Jonathan out of the coma. But intuitively, I felt driven to go and see this boy. A personal development coach, something drew me to him. I think because he was a child in serious trouble it reminded me of my own child's situation. My son Jason had died of a rare birth disorder on Father's Day in 1988. As I slowly watched Jase's life evaporate one day at a time, knowing I couldn't stop it, I thought maybe I could do something for Jonathan.
I had been a professional hypnotist specializing in stress reduction for only about a year when I heard about Jonathan. I specialized in teaching people calm public speaking and calm test-taking. These seemed like skills I could teach others so they could excel in academics or their own business. I never imagined I'd be using hypnosis to help someone in coma!
Using guided imagery, hypnotic suggestion, and a technique called Command Following, within 48 hours of using these complementary alternative medicine methods, Jonathan regained conscious awareness. The facility where Jonathan lived, the staff and his grandparents were shocked and pleased! So was I.
A dream come true for him, Jonathan started communicating with his family and caregivers. After working with Jonathan, I've worked with other people in coma and stroke recovery using hypnosis and something called Jin Shin Jyutsu. These are natural techniques that can really make a difference to reduce stress.

Using Hypnosis Susan was able to give young Jonathan the gift of communicating with the hospital staff and his family. I highly recommend this book for anyone interested in knowing about alternative methods, finding inner strength during times of adversity, and the power of love and mindful living.
