At night before you go to sleep, ask your subconscious mind to show you where it is. To remind you where it is. Repeat as many times as you sleep until discovery comes. Do this and tell yourself there is only gain for you, no fear.

Hi Smiling Heart- Have you tried this and has this ever worked for you?

Personally, I think you need to stop thinking about it.

Either toss it as a permanent loss and get over it, or allow your brain to wander. You’ve been looking for at least a week now and still haven’t found the box you’re looking for.

Hypnosis is a minefield. You never know what is true and what is not, what has been verified by science and what was made up by some guy on the internet. First off, there is no such thing as a subconscious mind. There is more of a consciousness spectrum. Also, hypnosis is actually an intense state of concentration. I am going to say that the method described by smilingheart1 has little to no scientific basis. I am also going to say that the cost of hiring a professional hypnotheripist is probably not worth it.

Some tips to help you find things. If you ever thought “I know it’s not going to be there, so I am not going to search there,” then search there. Also, don’t just look randomly. Divide the house into sections and make sure you completely search each room

I haven’t tried hypnosis,however when I stop trying to remember I usually remember. I’m not saying it happens right away sometimes it takes weeks but eventually I do remember and find the item.
