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’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.
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.
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.
People explain to justify what they do, but it’s not based on what others’ feel or think or understand – how do they really know? It’s always based on what their own standards, as if they have to justify their own existance to themselves. It’s very uncomfortable for them to be in a place where “I do what I do because I do it”. Yet in reality, that’s the only place that we can have liberation.
While I love working with all different types of people, if you ask me any particular type that I love to work with, I’d say: “oh yeah, sure, yes, of course actors”.
Their dramatic characteristic makes them ideal subjects. They love acting, which is essential for hypnosis. They have experience working with different types of helping people such as agents and acting coaches, so they understand the value of my job. And let’s be honest, they are often gorgeous looking people.
I’ve always found this word “selfish” intriguing. It’s such an empty word by itself yet there are so many loaded meanings and emotions to it. An artificial word, yet a powerful label.
To be labeled “selfish” is not a nice feeling for many of us so we would do whatever it takes to avoid being labeled as such, mostly, to try to put the happiness of others ahead of our own.
And it’s such a popluar ideal throught human history in most cultures that a lot of people give up what makes them happy to “fit in” the consensus. the problem is, general consensus is just a bunch of ideal, concepts and labels that are all so empty inside.
Self-Hypnotism was the first hypnotism book I ever bought, during a library book sale some years ago. At that time, I didn’t know anything more than anyone else about hypnotism. I just saw the cover, intrigued by the title, and bought it, 25 cents. The book was published many years ago (first edition in 1964?) and the used book looked old. I started to read the first couple of chapters and that was it…
It was not until years later, after my inner hypnotist was fully awakened and I
