Dr. Hodges’ ground—breaking investigative technique gives a foretaste of how criminal investigations will eventually be done as investigators learn to utilize the most capable part of the human mind. Indeed we now have a new way of profiling that can lead investigators to perpetrators while explaining motives. By decoding messages piece by piece, word by word, investigators can uncover the motives and hidden agendas of perpetrators.
Dr. Hodges’s work is heartily endorsed by specialists in the fields of criminal justice and psychology. This new capability of the unconscious mind has been well documented in extensive psychological research and is now beginning to be appreciated and utilized internationally by law—enforcement officers and criminal justice.
Currently law enforcement partially recognizes the unconscious mind’s abilities in their familiar efforts to hypnotize witnesses to obtain additional information. But the deeper intelligence is far beyond hypnosis—and specifically communicates its secret observations in its own unique thoughtprint language. Law enforcement also recognizes that serial killers unconsciously communicate symbolically when they stage a crime scene. (For example, a blanket found over a deceased victim’s body suggests the perpetrator was unconsciously protective and emotionally involved with victim. “Blanket” means caring.) This is the killer’s deeper intelligence in action ADD symbolically. The next step for law enforcement will be to understand the verbal symbolic language—thoughtprint language—perpetrators use unconsciously.
Now investigators have the capability of reading between the lines where the perpetrator secretly confesses and provides his clues. The recent clinical discovery of a vastly superior deeper intelligence brings something entirely new to the table in knowing how to obtain valuable information from perpetrators’ communications that investigators can obtain in no other way—by understanding their unconscious messages. First that means knowing that a deeper intelligence exists. Then an investigator must understand the specific encoded “thoughtprint” language of the unconscious mind including how it continually communicates, how badly a perpetrator unconsciously wishes to tell his story, and how his conscious mind cannot prevent it.
As an investigator of the human mind and a clinician trained in unconscious communication, Dr. Hodges shows conclusively how in different communications— ransom notes, letters, emails, threats, interrogations, phone calls, journals —people reveal their secrets between the lines. He demonstrates how the deeper intelligence— which insists on total honesty— presents truths that may not be readily available on a conscious level—and how to look for clues that typical criminal investigators seldom, if ever, see. He applies the same thoughtprint techniques he uses daily in private practice to forensic settings. In short, he reveals how to utilize the unconscious mind and decode a perpetrator’s deeper, often confessional messages.
Thoughtprints, like fingerprints, identify facts and point to the perpetrators. “Reading between the lines” enables investigators in selected cases when written documents or verbatim oral communications are available to create a detailed impression of the perpetrator.
This new type of investigator—one who can read between the lines—now has the means to establish the “missing” motive and thereby the identity of the perpetrator. Thoughtprint decoding provides the most insightful look yet into the deepest psychological motives of killers (and criminals in general) because the deeper intelligence speaks for the soul.
One of the striking features “thoughtprint decoding” has revealed about the criminal mind is that perpetrators secretly (unconsciously) profile themselves.
Thoughtprint decoding reveals that every single forensic communication contains two messages and not just one. Each written or oral communication involving a suspect contains two separate trains of thought, and tells two separate stories with the hidden story being far more accurate and truthful. Now investigators have a strong ally in the unconscious mind of a perpetrator or suspect that insists on telling the truth without the person realizing it and no matter how determined he or she is consciously to cover up the truth.
Besides an inclination to confess between the lines, perpetrators often unconsciously explain their hidden motives in an attempt to understand themselves. Many times with their extensive communications perpetrators are actually making an effort to become conscious of motives that are hidden to them. Between the lines of their seemingly self—serving statements, they tell what really triggered their behavior.
Utilizing the most perceptive part of the human mind we now have a new witness in every crime where there are written or oral communications from perpetrators or suspects. We now have a truthful part of a perpetrator that secretly guides communications toward revealing the truth. This now means that often we have the actual voice of the perpetrator speaking truthfully about the crime in his various communications. In the final analysis the perpetrator is secretly profiling himself between the lines—practical new findings about the criminal mind.
Unknowingly criminals communicate with investigators “in code” using “thoughtprints”... the context always remains the same for perpetrators unconsciously—they are constantly looking at their guilt.
The recent prominent forensic case of Natalee Holloway, the missing teenager in Aruba, provides handles for grasping the idea of “thoughtprints.” Media commentators suggested that the communications (including phone calls and text messages) between the three leading suspects would not be particularly revealing because “they could have been talking in code to each other” and also because “we can’t know the context of their communications.” The example of secret encoded communications between suspects involving a specific context describes “thoughtprint decoding” in a nutshell. This is precisely what the unconscious mind does. Unknowingly criminals communicate with investigators “in code” using “thoughtprints"— thoughts containing key ideas about what really happened because deep down they want to confess.
Also the context always remains the same for a perpetrator unconsciously. Deep down, as “thoughtprint” investigation consistently reveals, they are continually looking at their hidden guilt over their horrendous actions and in one form or another continue to speak “in code” to the authorities. This is true no matter how cold—blooded a perpetrator may appear on the surface as the BTK killer revealed (see brief profile below). So in the Holloway case, if the three suspects were involved in her disappearance their deeper thoughtprints would secretly give them away. Even if they intentionally used a conscious code for secretly communicating, that very code could be examined for a deeper unconscious code.
Put simply, the deeper intelligence, truly a “superintelligence,” perceives reality in far more detail than the conscious mind and is an expert at observing and analyzing deeper motives while always insisting on the truth. As Dr. Hodges and others have validated in original clinical research, the unconscious mind is a secret genius light years ahead of the conscious mind. In a nutshell, the unconscious mind or deeper intelligence— the “other 90% of the human mind"— sees further, tells more, and has a huge bent toward honesty. And it cannot be stopped from speaking given the opportunity.
For years people have wondered how to tap into the “other 90% of the mind.” That dream came true clinically with the breakthrough discovery of the deeper intelligence. Then Dr. Hodges took the next step of applying the new knowledge and the mind’s extraordinary capabilities to forensic cases. This puts us in a new era for forensic investigation.
Strikingly and wonderfully the mind actually speaks two languages at the same time—one literal and one symbolic. For example, a person is literally talking about Natalee seeing the sharks but symbolically is telling us he may be a shark. This is how the unconscious mind will communicate. While the conscious mind speaks literally about certain facts, the unconscious (subliminal) mind speaks symbolically about deeper facts the conscious mind overlooks.
The familiar idea that left brain communication is literal ("just the facts") and right brain communication is symbolic (figurative) will also help clarify the difference in conscious and unconscious communication. Although this is not exactly how the two parts of our brain work, the analogy that the conscious mind speaks “left brain,” and the unconscious mind speaks “right brain” can be useful. This analogy further highlights how the unconscious mind can speak simultaneously with the conscious mind—one message is literal “left brain,” the other is symbolic “right brain.”
Criminals tend to unconsciously confess through their thoughtprints which serve as a built-in verbal lie detector. Certainly actual lie detectors have taught us that unconsciously a person wants to confess and with few exceptions cannot stop themselves from doing so. One striking way the deeper mind confesses is by repeating the same big idea in different ways over and over again—matching thoughtprints—which also serve to validate the message and create a “code” or central message. In addition the deeper intelligence will connect thoughtprints or key ideas—linking thoughtprints—to elaborate and tell a cohesive story. The deeper mind is a master at patterning ideas—matching and linking thoughtprints—between the lines in a unique thoughtprint language. It constantly speaks in code.
