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.
It’s always encouraging and inspiring for me to work with young people. Many young people who came to see me for spiritual regression are very in-tune with their inner being and inner truth. And they make excellent hypnotic subjects. I doubt that these people will ever form some sort of identity with what they believe.
I feel this 1970 movie was made for me when I first saw it. It started right with hypnosis induction. As the scene unfolds, we see it’s a hypnosis class for doctors. There’s a student subject doing demo. While Dr. Marc Chabot, professor of psychiatry, regresses him back in time, a girl in audience is regressed back to 5 years old spontaneously. Daisy Gamble is so hypnotizable that she talks herself into trance again when awakened by Dr. Chabot. Daisy must be every hypnotist’s dream!
The applications of hypnosis are only limited to what a person wants to be limited to. The religious, cultural and personal beliefs play a big role in our daily life as well as in hypnotic state, which is more expereiential, but how one interprets the experience is still subjected to beliefs.
Hypnotic state is such a cool state that one of the most heard questions after a person is emerged is, “Is this real?”
Real – compared to what?
Read three totally different case histories of clients contacting, or contacted by, the deceased beloved ones in their hypnotic journey…
As I guided her into the inward journey, I borrowed her word “an ancient time”. We ended up at a place where we couldn’t exactly locate. There is a palace. There is ocean. There are pyramids; and unnamable animals and flowers. It feels ancient, yet sounds modern. Lisa as Adara in that life is a princess in a small kingdom. She studies astrology and plays harp-like instrument and flute. The name of her father, the king, sounds like “Hoden”, and I had her copy down as the way she saw her father’s name in her mind’s eye. With her eyes closed, she then wrote down some symbols (see the picture) – Atlantean language first handed, but at that time when she wrote it I didn’t know.
I sometimes wondered how much inner resistance I had to overcome before I decided to do nothing else but follow my heart’s call.
When I signed up for my first Clinical Hypnotherapy course, there was no doubt in my deepest heart that it was the spiritual aspect of it that drew me into this form of practice. I did not grow up in a family or an environment where hypnotism was normal. Actually I knew much less about hypnotism than many people did, as I grew up in China where hypnotism was almost unheard of. One day I was in the Vancouver Public Library central branch. Literally a book fell out of the shelf in front of me – That was Dr. Michael Newton’s Journey of Souls. I picked it up, took it home, read it, and wondered, wondered, and wondered on it.
