I’ve been on Craigslist.org an awful lot lately. You see, I’m in the process of changing jobs, and so I’m looking around very carefully to find the absolute best possible position for me (and on that note, if any of you happen to have an open position for a creative writer in your ad agency/in-house marketing department/newspaper/science laboratory, don’t be shy).
In the meantime, I’m planning to freelance to pay the rent. I was intrigued by one particular gig listed on my local Craigslist:
Get in touch with your past life on TV
Do you believe you have lived past life? Do you feel you have issues in this life, and they were residual from past life? Do you want to experience your past life by hypnosis? New TV show is looking for people who want to experience thier past life, and share it on TV. The show is completely respectful, compassionate and genuine. The hypnosis is done by a nationally well respected Board Certified Hypnotherapist. (who is also super nice.) We want to help you explore your past life as we explore the possibility of the human mind. Ideal candiate would be female, physically and mentally healthy, articulate and intelligent, be able to handle the spot light, as well as a good communicator. Pay for the gig is 40 dollars for an hour to two of your time, if you are interested in doing a pre scripted motivational speech for about 30 to 40 minutes, the pay is 100 dollars for the two gigs. Great oppurtunity to get some great exposure, TV credits, and learning experience. Come join us and be inspired, and inspires others.
To apply, please send us your headshot, your general availability, (days of the day, morning/afternoon/early evening) and a detailed message outlining why you would be a good fit for the show. We would like to feature as many people as possible on our show, but the time slots are limited, so please apply ASAP.
We are also looking for people who believe Hypnosis can help them develop psychic or paranormal power, or wishing to use hypnosis for theraputic purposes.
This sounds perfect for me! I’m female, physically and mentally healthy, articulate, intelligent, LOVE the spotlight, and I communicate like a champ. The fact that the hypnotherapist is board-certified and “super nice” is quite an attractive offer — add in an extra $60 for a prewritten pep talk and I’m in.
Even if I don’t make it on, I hope they manage to reach a consensus on the “possibility of the human mind.” I for one believe its existence is possible, though events like this always give me pause.
