Healing With Hypnosis

“It’s hard to find a field that hasn’t used hypnosis successfully, everything from quitting smoking to IBS.”
– Good Morning America, 9/10

This month, I am studying hypnosis at the Ontario Hypnosis Centre in Toronto and thoroughly enjoying the classes.  It’s fascinating stuff. 

Hypnosis is a natural state that we experience daily.  For example, when you arrive at your destination after a long drive in your car but you can’t recall anything about your journey, it’s because you were in what’s referred to as a ‘driver’s trance’.  In other words, you were in a hypnotic state.   You’re in a hypnotic state whenever your mind goes into ‘auto pilot’ and do things automatically without thinking.   The hypnotic state of mind can be used to achieve amazing things.

It’s important to know that hypnosis is not for everyone.  If you have serious concerns about your mental health, you should first seek assistance from a psychologist or psychiatrist.  However, if your mental health is in good shape and you want to eliminate some bad habits, rid yourself of emotional baggage, or establish some new positive behaviours, hypnosis is a relatively quick way to bypass the conscious thinking mind and reach the subconscious directly in order to make lasting and positive changes.  After just three to seven hypnosis sessions, clients generally report significant and often life-changing results.

What first drew me to hypnotherapy was the desire to dump emotional baggage left over from childhood. Every thought, every emotion, and every experience is retained in the memory and much of it becomes accessable through hypnosis.  Deeply buried wounds long forgotten in the subconscious can be surfaced with hypnosis and healed.  This is a wonderful thing.  However, what led me to study hypnosis was my experience in 2007 as a volunteer in a Past Life Regression hypnotherapy class conducted by graduating students. 

About half the Western world believes in reincarnation.   Past life regression is a technique used to help you recall lives that you lived before this one.  My experience in 2007 was a wake-up call and a game changer.  It helped me define who I really was and what my mission was in this lifetime.  You can read examples of past life regression in Brian Weiss’s books, starting with Many Lives, Many Masters. 

This week, I’ll be exploring something called ‘Inter-Life Regression’.  This is a hypnosis technique that helps you to recall your life between lives.  I will report back on my experience.  In the meantine, read any books by Michael Newton.  He has  documented hundreds of fascinating ‘Life between Lives’ stories of people from around the world.

Life just becomes more amazing and miraculous every day!
