When I was about age 16 or 17 (that's about 45 years ago) I had to see the dentist about a couple of bad abscesses in my mouth. So he examined me and made an appointment for me to come back the next day or so. I did not like this guy too much because he had a cavalier and condescending bit of an attitude. When I walked out the door of his office it just sort of struck me that before I would return for my next appointment that I knew that the abscesses would disappear. When I returned he searched in my mouth and to his chagrin: no abscesses. He was shouting "I know I saw those abscesses", he looked into my mouth several times again and seemed to be angry as if Id been playing a joke on him, then he sent me home. How did this happen? I think it may have been just a subconscious will power on my part. I've had a few other lesser experiences just plain out of the blue. When I was into religion all the "in Jesus' name" stuff never did a damn thing for me, I don't think.
Anyone else have similar experiences and/or knowledgeable about such phenomena?
