Can you keep a secret? I think I have discovered some mind blocks being put in my way! You see, I have been trying for quite some time to get greater control over the mind of my collaborator in these messages about training grandparents, but things are not going as smoothly as I would like. In fact they are taking a turn for the worse, so I am going to have to be a little more careful. The guy is actually a sneaky type after all!

At first it seemed like a piece of cake. All I had to do was catch him when he wasn’t thinking – and to be honest that was most of the time. Then I had to quietly suggest certain things to him and he would quite happily scribble away and so I have been able to get my ideas out to the rest of you.

But recently things have been much less simple and he has been pre-occupied and busy. So I decided to do a little digging and to my horror I have found out that he is actually thinking on his own, without any intervention on my part.

Worse still, the stuff that he is thinking about is kind of hidden away where I cannot access it. To be honest it looks as though he is trying to keep it hidden from me and that just isn’t on – is it?

expressionblueI mean what kind of collaborator hides things from his lovely grandson? It is just not acceptable – well, not to me anyway!

With all this going on I spent the last week or so whilst I had him close at hand trying to find out just what was going on. Normally getting inside his head is as easy as pie. I mean there doesn’t appear to be too much going on inside there anyway, but this time there appear to be some kind of cupboards and they are closed to me.

None of my usual techniques have been of any use at all, the usual open book is firmly closed, well at least certain chapters of it are not available and that concerns me a lot. After all, he might be getting ready to spill the beans about all the techniques I am trying to pass on to you guys about training grandparents and then all hell will break loose. The very last thing we want is for the grown ups to know that we are anything other than little innocents, do we?

I have even tried catching him unawares very first thing in the morning before he wakes up properly. You all know the trick don’t you. You creep into their bedroom and get as close as possible and then stare hard into their closed eyes. That is when they are most vulnerable, when they don’t know that you are planting the seeds for what you want them to do that day.

Anyway I have been up at the crack of dawn and have carefully crept into the bedroom and started the usual mind control techniques, but with a slight difference. This time I have been trying to find out what else he has on his mind. Now usually that involves food or how to avoid any kind of work and so it is pretty boring, but recently he has been doing quite a bit of thinking.

WriterfantasyI know that because he mutters to himself as he is sleeping (GranJan is not a fan of this by the way) and when I start my mind probe it is as if there is an awful lot of jumbled stuff getting in the way.

So when I let him wake up and ask him more definite questions mind to mind he wakes up much more and just stares back at me. What is worse, he has a certain knowing smile on his face, and that definitely is disturbing.

When I ask him (all at the unconscious level of course) his mind just closes down, which is a sure sign that there is something interesting that he is hiding. Worse still, from time to time when he is fully awake he smiles at me and gives me a little wink. I am getting the idea that he knows that we are having a little game of hide and seek, and he is flipping well doing the hiding! Worst of all, he is doing it too darned well!black eyes2

I have established that it is to do with writing because I have been able to get those images out of his head and he is clearly up to something. I know that he keeps getting little images of eyes in the dark, but I haven’t been able to get any more information about them. But this has definitely been occupying his mind, so I definitely need to get to the bottom of it.

The fact that it has something to do with me is also a little disturbing, so as soon as I know any more I will keep you up to date. In the meantime if any of you have ideas about how to overcome these mind blocks in my way then please let me know.
