Prove it to Yourself

Read this before listening: A note regarding reverse speech audio samples.

Listen to these examples of reverse speech — the door to the unconscious.

 

A young woman talks about her relationship with her sister.

Forward:
We're just complete opposites
Reverse:
It's about you my sister

Discussing her job at an auto dealer, she talks about "expanding" her career skills in the technical area. Her reversal reveals a different motive. She's saying she would rather be one of the techs because they're willing to teach her.

Forward:
Because I hang out back there
Reverse:
Have fun he has a crush

This woman describes what a good relationship might be like in her forward dialogue while she defines her current situation in reverse.

Forward:
What a relationship would be like, you know, somebody you could slow dance with in the evening, silly things that I have no familiarity with.
Reverse:
One I got is nebulous

Talking about a problem with distractability, this client identifies "loss" or grief as the cause in her own reversal.

Forward:
This is a pattern with everything; if I get distracted it just drags me there and I just follow that.
Reverse:
I have the loss

I suggest a self reward system to motivate her to complete tasks. Outwardly she seems willing, but her reversal indicates otherwise.

Forward:
That might be an idea
Reverse:
I doubt, I doubt that

My wife using her falsetto "pet" voice when wishing our potbelly pig, Clover, a happy birthday.

Forward:
Thirteen years ago
Reverse:
We hold this tiny spirit

This woman may have been unconsciously voicing insecurity when discussing a potential change of location.

Forward:
A little easier if you move somewhere where at least you know someone, so we're really undecided on that. But I do really love the west.
Reverse:
I am not an ass.
