Over the past few weeks, I have been asked a few times "What is hypnotherapy, how does it work, and what happens?"
Let's explore this together.
I was first introduced to hypnotherapy and guided meditations with the intent to heal the past way back in 2008. My desire to get rid of the pain in my heart after the divorce and to start feeling stronger, and better again. Mind, I didn't know what the meant either.
Over the years, I have used and practiced slightly different styles, but the basic premise is the same - to support clients to venture into their subconscious where all memories and stories we live are stored. Now, the storage location can be in memories section of the brain, but also in the muscles, organs and cells which is why hypnotherapy for diseases can be so profound.
The client is always aware of what is going on, and they are in charge of the process, and my role is to really ask questions as I would in a clinical conversation. The subconscious knowns all, so it is very able to dialogue with the therapist too. As the client is guided to their deepest selves, their highest self is also invited to be part of the process. What I mean by this is the part of the person that is connected to God, The Universe, Source, that only wants the best for us, and that is to feel and live in the feeling of love, joy, and peace. Therefore, having this guiding force as the leader, also equates to having a very loving, power with the intent of love working with the client, and myself through out the entire session.
The 'steps' as a general rule is what happens, keep in mind, each session and person is different.
Our parents and grandparent's era was very different to what we now know to be healthy, wise and helpful.
They also didn't have trained therapists etc like we do these days.
Finances were very different and priorities reflect the social norms of the time.
Most of the time 99.5% of the time, the responsible person is honestly so sorry, shamed and guilt ridden about what happened.
Ultimately, it is about creating a safe space to explore how and why we developed coping mechanisms that are now not serving our current life stage and dreams. Keeping quite and not asking for helped may have been a saving grace as a child, but now, you are not getting your needs met or the help you need.
By doing the inner work, empowering and showing the parts of you that doesn't believe they are of value of love doing this type of work has a phenomenal affect. The inner shifts change the way we feel, think, believe. The stories are changed, and so, we choose from a different perspective. We choose and feel from a more loving space, and that is where the magic happens. Feeling and living from the space of Love is liberating.
Freedom is more about creating choice and free to be who you choose to be. Not about giving up your liberties or responsibilities, but to choose them with awareness and love.
