About Hypnosis

What is hypnosis?

Hypnosis, also called hypnotherapy, is a state of deep relaxation and focused concentration. It’s a type of mind-body medicine.

A trained and certified hypnotist or hypnotherapist guides you into this deep state of focus and relaxation with verbal cues, repetition and imagery. When you’re under hypnosis, this intense level of concentration and focus allows you to ignore ordinary distractions and be more open to guided suggestions to make changes to improve your health.

 

How does hypnosis work?

How hypnosis works isn’t completely understood. However, it’s commonly believed that in the deep state of focus and relaxation that’s achieved with hypnosis:

  • Your conscious mind is quieted.
  • You’re able to tap into the part of your brain where your thoughts, beliefs, perceptions, sensations, emotions, memory and behaviors originate.
  • In this state, you’re more open to gentle guidance from your hypnotherapist to help you modify or replace the unconscious thoughts that are driving your current behavior.

What are some myths about hypnosis?

Myth: Hypnosis isn’t real. It’s a form of entertainment.

  • Hypnosis isn’t a stage act or some magical act. Clinical hypnosis is a type of medical therapy that’s often used as part of a treatment plan that includes traditional medical approaches.

Myth: You lose consciousness or have amnesia when you’re hypnotized.

  • Most people remember everything that happens during hypnosis. You remain aware of who you are, where you are and remember what happened during a hypnosis session.

Myth: You’re under the control of your hypnotherapist when you’re hypnotized.

  • Your hypnotist or hypnotherapist guides hypnosis, but hypnosis is something you do for yourself. You can’t be made to do anything against your will. You won’t reveal any information that you wished to remain secret. You don’t lose control over your behavior. Hypnosis makes it easier to experience suggestions but doesn’t force you to have certain experiences.

Myth: Hypnosis is nothing more than deep sleep.

  • Hypnosis isn’t sleeping. There are some deeper forms of hypnosis that could make you appear to be asleep because your body is very still and quiet, but you aren’t asleep.

 

Why it's done

Hypnosis can be an effective way to cope with stress and anxiety. In particular, it may ease stress and anxiety before a medical procedure, such as a breast biopsy.

Hypnosis also may be helpful for:

  • Pain control. Hypnosis may help with pain due to burns, cancer, childbirth, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, jaw problems, dental procedures and headaches.
  • Hot flashes. Hypnosis may ease hot flashes caused by menopause.
  • Behavior change. Hypnosis has been used with some success to treat sleep problems, bed-wetting, smoking and overeating.
  • Cancer treatment side effects. Hypnosis has been used to ease side effects from chemotherapy and radiation treatment.
  • Mental health conditions. Hypnosis may help reduce anxiety associated with fears and phobias.

 

Hypnotherapy (sometimes called hypnotic suggestion) is a therapeutic practice that uses guided hypnosis to help a client reach a trance-like state of focus, concentration, diminished peripheral awareness, and heightened suggestibility. This state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditations. In it, a person is unusually responsive to an idea or image, but they are not under anyone’s “control.” Instead, a trained clinical hypnotherapist can help clients in this state relax and turn their attention inward to discover and utilize resources within themselves that can help them achieve desired behavioral changes or better manage pain or other physical concerns. Eventually, a client learns how to address their states of awareness on their own and in doing so, gain greater control of their physical and psychological responses.

The American Psychological Association and American Medical Association have recognized hypnotherapy as a valid procedure since 1958, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) has recommended it as a treatment for chronic pain since 1995.

Soul Retrieval

Hypnosis

Soul retrieval restores vital essence, or soul parts, that left as a natural coping mechanism to shock and trauma like accidents, surgery, loss of a loved one, divorce, drug or alcohol abuse, changing schools, or even a simple bump on the head. When we suffer loss, experience a traumatic event, shock, or fright, we can have soul loss. In Latin America illness from fright is called Susto.

Soul loss can also result from soul theft. This can be experienced in cases like abuse, issues of power over another, jealousy or envy, for example.

It is not uncommon to give away soul parts. A parent may give part of their soul to a child with the intention to give them strength, or vise versa. Anytime we give part of ourselves to another it becomes a burden to them, and a loss for us. Someone might have a pattern of willingly giving away parts of their soul (their personal power) in hope of being loved or accepted. Both dynamics, soul stealing and giving parts of our soul to others are learned behaviors that are usually done without awareness.

Soul retrieval, restoring the vital essence that was lost, imparts greater integrity and wholeness to one’s being. With this comes the ability to experience more energy, create more joy, greater meaning, and harmony in ones life. People report improved emotional, physical or mental wellbeing; resolution of old patterns , self-empowerment and greater ability to move on from painful situations.

Symptoms of soul loss include:

  • Anxiety
  • Addictions
  • Depression
  • Unresolved grief
  • Problems in relationships
  • Not feeling like yourself
  • Feeling empty or disconnected

This session will take about an hour and a half of your time.
