When you say heal, what do you mean?
I track measurable symptoms. When you come to me, we will establish together the emotions related to your personal challenges. We will rank them on a scale of 0-10, 10 being the highest, and we will record frequency and duration. We will track your healing in relation to this scale. Our goal will be to bring your challenge emotion down to zero.
Most sessions take between two and three hours. I advise that you take the day off from work or arrange for a light schedule to give yourself time to process and heal.
Many people find resolution in just one session. The most challenging obstacles can take three or more.
For example, I once worked with a woman who was so depressed that she was unable to drag herself from bed most days. After three very intense, deep sessions, she was not only done with her self-imposed bed rest, but she had decided to follow her dream of taking a new job in a new country. Read my blog post on her journey.
Hypnosis is focused attention or intense self focus. There’s no loss of power, control, or free will. Hypnotic trance is like dreaming while you’re awake. Think about how you feel when you’re engrossed in a good book, you’ve lost yourself in a movie, or you’re driving on auto-pilot. These are examples of trance. When you’re in trance, you’re fully conscious, but you tune out what’s going on around you to focus on the subject at hand.
When we’re going about our days, we live by the rule of our conscious minds, with our subconscious working quietly behind the scenes. In hypnosis, we are very relaxed and open to suggestion and increased imagination. In hypnosis, we can directly access our subconscious minds. And when we connect and communicate with the subconscious, we can get some serious work done.
Will it work on me?
It is possible that you are part of the small percentage of people for whom hypnosis is very challenging or unattainable. If you have borderline personality or thought or mood disorders (pre-psychotic or psychotic), this is not the therapy for you. When, however, you are one among the great majority (85 percent of the population) for whom it is viable, here are three guidelines for success:
- To be hypnotized, you have to want to and believe you can be.
- You must to be able to relax.
- Drug, alcohol, or excessive caffeine use before a session will inhibit your ability to be hypnotized.
If you are anxious about hypnosis or find it challenging to relax into trance, Energy Healing may be for you.
