The Flight-or-Flight Response is built into our human biology. The reptilian brain, by far the oldest and simplest part of our brain, is responsible for our survival. It is a system from ancient times which caused an individual to either fight or run for protection when real physical danger was present, such as a large hungry animal. Today people don’t have to face the issue of survival on a daily basis. Yet this component still exists in our biology and can be easily activated, in most people, when a danger is real or when it is just imagined to be real, such as with fear of abandonment, or fear of not being good enough.
Lindsay arrived on time in the evening. And opened herself up quite immediately. There were many deaths in her life and she really wanted to find out why. She had a miscarriage, lost a son when he was 2 and half, three years ago she lost another son when he was 20, three months ago her husband Doug died. At the age of 50, she is half retired as a nurse. Facing so many deaths, she started to question life.
Using the technique that we call “Parts Therapy” in hypnosis, I asked what the reason was for Emanuel to hang on to cigarettes, a voice came through and identified itself as “the smoke”. It has a different tone from Emanuel, like a separate entity, who, upon my request, decided to name himself “Cool”.
Some people say that there is an extraterrestrial society of beings called the Reptilians who represent a negative race and that they are biased towards negativity. They say the Reptilian society is humanoid that is mixed with a snake-like structure or mixed DNA therefore it has some attributes of reptiles.
Neither of the women had any conscious memory of the incidents, but both had “lost times”. Later after they were woke up, they were told that they were drunk and fell into sleep. Yet signs such as body marks, scratches, pains and in one case bleeding told them something else might have happened. And one woman said, “I know a glass of wine and two cranberry-juice-and-vodkas wouldn’t make me so drunk.” She also started to have nightmares weeks after that night of losing memory. When they confronted those people they were with, they told stories, but they seemed nervous, as if they were hiding something.
It is amazing how people feel consciously responsible for stuff that is actually generated by their unconscious mind. The embarrassment is the conscious mind trying to feel it needs to control the situation when the situation is caused unconsciously which means they cannot control the way conscious mind thinks. For example, I can have much more conscious control over whether I speak rudely to someone, of which means I can take the responsibility, than whether I blush or hiccup or blink, which I can’t be responsible for.
A hypnotherapist talking about meditation might be unusual, or not. But the hypnotic state and a meditative state may not be so far from each other. Today’s blog post is a video – the longest video I’ve ever done. Enjoy.
Pause, breathe, relax, for just a few minutes, many times a day.
Meditation doesn’t have to be complicated. If meditation is to get out of mind, the mind cannot facilitate meditation, because mind doesn’t like to get out of itself.
She is in her early 80’s. I first met her in my Self-Hypnosis for a Better Life Class. She then came to see me twice for hypnotherapy privately. The second time she came, the charge was $120. She only had $100 with her. So she said she’d drop an envelop off at West End Community Centre where I regularly teach classes.
There was no envelop when I next went to teach.
There was still no envelop the week after. I called her number, no answer, no voice message. I sent a text message to that number, and realized it was a land line.
A female client of mine was regressed to a past life of Isabelle, a woman full of life. In that regression session, we first landed at a harbour where she just arrived, after a long journey on a steamship. She was 25, very excited for this solo journey. She used the expression “I am drinking every moment” to describe how exuberant she felt. Further conversation we realized she just arrived in Paris from the state of Nebraska. “It’s my first time here. Finally I’m here!”
