The blog post is a hypnotherapy case story telling a woman’s journey from priestess to prostitute to grace, a journey of humanity. My client was a courageous soul to go through it, and to give me permission to write about it. The name used is not the client’s real name…

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.
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.
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… “
When Linda came to see me, she had a long laundry list of “symptoms of problems”, and she had a self-directed treatment plan: Past Life Regression.
On our first meeting, I learned her fascination of Past Life Regression and Life Between Lives Regression was formed as a result of reading a series of best-selling books. I asked her if she could choose, which one she would start first – addressing some of the urgent problems such as physiological stress and insomnia; or past life fascination. They might end up at the same place but we don’t know when we start. In stating her current life and work situations, she had tears all over. There we had some clue.
Daman’s first hypnotherapy appointment is in two days, on Friday; however, he calls at 5pm asking if he could come this evening in two hours instead, as he is experiencing some anxiety right this moment. I say yes. This is one of the advantages of working from home. I can easily make myself flexible for clients.
