Hypnotherapy: The Invitation to Innate Wisdom

What impression do you have about hypnotherapy?

You may think it is “freaky” because hypnotised people seem to follow instructions easily and lose their control. We see things like this in hypnosis show on TV. You may be worried that you would not remember anything once you are hypnotised.

I was totally suspicious about hypnosis for a long time! How hypnotherapy is used for a therapeutic purpose is actually very different from what you imagine.

 

What is a “hypnotic” state of mind like?

A hypnotic state is nothing but a calm and relaxed state of mind. It is a mental state when your consciousness is inwardly focused.

The basic mechanism of hypnotherapy and mindfulness practice is the same – use the focused attention induced by meditation for exploring your inner realm on a deeper level.

 

We all have experiences when our consciousness is inwardly focused. For example, when we are absorbed with reading books or watching TV, we may not notice that we are called or we may be surprised how quickly time goes by.

This is also a kind of hypnotic state. So even when you are hypnotised, you have clear awareness and control of what you say.

 

Benefits of hypnotherapy and mindfulness practice

A practice of directing our mind inward has a lot of benefits. It cultivates our senses of self-awareness of what is happening internally. Our consciousness tends to go outward in our daily life. We stay alert to sense danger, think about what needs to be done, and take consideration for other people etc.

In this awaken state of mind, we are too busy to get in touch with what is actually here inside us.

 

Hypnotherapy and mindfulness practice are effective in order to shift the outward-directed consciousness into inward-directed consciousness through meditation.

Once consciousness goes inward, you will be able to tap into memories that have been forgotten for a long time, and emotions and sensations attached to them.

 

The subconscious and unconscious are thought to be located in the limbic area, which deals with long-term memories and emotions.

Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool to connect with the subconscious and access the root cause that led to your present issues.

It has transformative power to work through unresolved conflicts in you.

 

Accessing our innate wisdom

The subconscious is thought of as a treasury of your innate wisdom. It is not bound by the logic, the time, and the space.

The subconscious has the tremendous healing power to bring balance and harmony into all levels of your life on the physical, the emotional, and the spiritual.

Dr. Brian Weiss, a psychotherapist who has made a pioneering contribution to past life therapy, states as follows:

“Regression therapy is the mental act of going back to an earlier time, whenever that time may be, in order to retrieve memories that may still be negatively influencing a patient’s present life and that are probably the source of the patient’s symptoms.” [1]

Hypnotherapy helps you connect to your greater self on emotional and spiritual levels. There is something greater than our physical selves in the depth of our life.

In a spiritual realm, this core part of us is regarded as being interconnected to all people and the universe.

This could be the God or Buddha for you. Some people may call it higher self, the light or the source. Others may describe it as the great life of the universe.

Hypnotherapy is a tool to communicate with your soul.

 

Hypnotherapy may be helpful for the following issues

  • I haven’t seen much outcome through counselling and feel something missing
  • I want to understand the meaning of my suffering and the purpose of my life
  • I have persistent symptoms that have not been improved (e.g. anxiety, fear, repulsion, somatic symptoms)
  • I have aspects of my personality that I struggle to change
  • It’s overwhelming to deal with my sorrow
  • I am scared to die
  • I want to strengthen my connection with my soul and regain the emotional balance

The combination of hypnotherapy and psychotherapy is also helpful for you to have deeper understanding of yourself.

 

Past life regression therapy

Past life regression therapy started spreading when Dr. Brian Weiss, a psychiatrist in America, published his first book, “Many lives, many masters” in 1988.

In past life therapy, clients are guided into their past lives in a relaxed state. They will revisit several significant scenes of a particular life time.

After revisiting their past life, clients and I review their past life they just saw and explore how that life time influences their current life.

 

Many people gain deeper awareness and realisation about their present life through remembering their past life.

Some people gain insights into solving their current issues by understanding their life lessons that have been carried over from their past life.

Other people report their persistent problematic symptoms were improved through revisiting past life experience, which may be the root cause of their symptoms.[2]

 

Age regression therapy

There is a Japanese proverb “What imprinted in you during the first three years of your life has a far-reaching effect until 100.”

What we experience in our childhood makes a direct impact on the way we think, feel and relate to each other in later life.[3]

Our relationships with our parents are especially important. They can become a foundation for a sense of security and trust or the source of fear and anxiety.

Emotional wounds caused by feeling unloved as a child will manifest in various ways.

You may feel worthless, have fear of being abandoned, or feel resentful at people who hurt you.

You may be scared of your own intense anger that you think may hurt others.

You may struggle to build and stay in intimate relationships.

Suppressed emotional pain can also be expressed in somatic forms such as chronic migraine, a stomachache, eczema, high blood pressure, and caner.

Your experience in the childhood has broad impact on every aspect of your life.

 

Age regression therapy help clients explore their childhood and access memories in the subconscious, which may be related to the cause of presenting problematic symptoms.

Hypnotherapy allows clients to release unresolved emotions attached to those old memories.

It depends on individuals how soon healing occurs. Some people need one or a few sessions to resolve their issues, while others spend a period of time together with psychotherapy.

In order to heal past traumas, it is not always the case that people need to remember their past wounds. You can be healed by tapping into forgotten memories that you were loved.

Your subconscious mind will bring out necessary memories for you to achieve deeper happiness.

The best possible outcome can emerge when we trust our deeper wisdom and allow our subconscious to take us wherever it needs to go.
