This is a past life regression case story. It’s a life in the eighteenth century with a lot of surprising turns. The client is a woman, yet the life reviewed is a man’s. Visiting this life in the therapeutic setting resolves the client’s feeling of inadequacy in her relationship.
I felt so “back in time” hours after the hypnosis session with Janet. She has left, and I walked around in the room, looking out of the window, the trees, mountains, passing cars. For a long time, I felt that I was coming from the future, visiting the Earth in 2014, which felt unreal yet a strange sense of fun.
Janet’s description of that future life as John was so vivid that I was surely with “him” in those moments, seeing what he saw, feeling what he felt, smelling what he smelt, and tasting what he tasted.
A hypnotherapist’s office may sound like an odd place to go when what you want is to get better from cysts and a brain tumor.
Yet it was out of a great deal of anxiety, frustration, sadness, embarrassment and depression that Daniela contacted me. She is 35 years old, for 12 years she has had breast cysts. 7 years ago, she started to have a brain tumor. She is currently on medication for the tumor, she has had five biopsies and four surgeries for cysts, and yet doctors can’t explain why this is happening to her, nor do they seem able to stop it regardless of the efforts. Daniela is getting married in five months, and planning to have children right afterwards. There is a sense of urgency in the situation, and she feels it’s time to understand why this is happening to her so that she can do something about it. She came for hypnotherapy sessions for past life regression. In our consultation, we agreed to have three sessions to start with. Later on, Daniela came for two more sessions.
My curiosity of the phenomenon of multiple personalities, “exorcism” and thought form release led me to this book. Ralph Allison, a psychiatrist starting practicing in 1972, a pioneer treating multiple personality disorder patients and a daring soul, wrote this quite interesting case history book. Can you imagine a middle class, crew-cut, straight, Board-certified psychiatrist conducts exorcism? He had the courage to stand up to his professional peers when they threatened to throw him off of a hospital staff because he dared use unconventional therapy techniques such as hypnosis, now a major instrument of cure for many persons with MPD.
Who needs “protection” from the world when you have connection with it? Deep connection comes from the willingness to be the authentic you, even it’s “imperfect”. The sense of worthiness doesn’t come from you being perfect according to your thoughts. It comes from you being okay, even though there is part of you wating to hide, to be on exhile. When you own it, and be okay with it, you are authentic. Herein lies our freedom – from the power of vulnerability.
There are a lot of out-of-body experience (or OBE) hypnosis techniques. The one I often use is to feel energy body expanding and contracting. We do it several times until one can expand as big as a city, or a country, and contract as small as a tiny dot. This takes time. With Mark, as he has already built up some trance muscles, we simply lifted up, and floated around.
Emily (not client’s real name) made the second hypnotherapy appointment with me by email. Her emails are always short and to the point. However each time she sits down in my office, and she starts to talk, she can go on and on. She uses a lot of words to describe her emotional turmoil. She says she wants to work on “letting go of fear, doubt, judgments, ego, stuff that is causing intense visceral reactions in my body, and creating problems in my life, blocking me from living my life to its fullest. And I know I unconsciously hide things that are holding me down… “
Like many others, I’ve lived a life with a lot of searchings – The meaning of love, the wonders of what seem to work what don’t, the puzzle of my own existance. I read. I travel. I converse. I long for the answers and finally I was pointed to go deep down within myself.
