Over the many years that I have practiced and spoken about hypnosis, my students and the readers of my books have asked me not only how I first learned about it, but also exactly what hypnosis is.
Hypnosis is the tool I use to journey beyond the conscious mind into the hidden realms of the subconscious, where the answers and solutions to vexing problems and phobias dwell. When a subject is induced using hypnosis into the deepest subconscious level, the somnambulistic state, they can access past lives and the vast knowledge of Spirit itself.
Various methods of hypnosis have been in use for thousands of years, by the shamans of primitive tribal cultures, as well as by the philosophers of ancient Greece such as Socrates. The word hypnosis comes from the Greek word hypnos, meaning sleep.
In the recent past, hypnosis was most commonly used to help conquer harmful habits such as smoking or overeating and to reduce stress and anxiety. This is done through suggestion and positive reinforcement while the subject is in trance. But so much more can be discovered, including forgotten lives and knowledge, by inducing the subject into the somnambulistic state.
After regressing a subject into a past life using hypnosis, the person “wakes up” in a normal conscious state, but they were never actually asleep. The subject will often remark that they feel rested as if they had taken a refreshing nap, when in reality they were in a deep trance for hours in some cases.
This is partly because I guide my subjects with positive suggestions so that they feel rested upon “waking.” They also feel relaxed because they have temporarily bypassed the conscious mind, which is often preoccupied with worries about what is going on in the subject’s life. These day-to-day uncertainties belong to the conscious mind and are irrelevant and non-existent when a subject is immersed in the somnambulistic state.
Since the conscious mind isn’t active during hypnosis, most subjects only remember bits and pieces about their session, so I record each and every session to enable them to listen to what they revealed about themselves in this or a past life.
It’s always fascinating to watch a subject’s reaction when they listen to a tape of their session for the first time. And it’s always rewarding to be able to help a subject face an irrational fear, cure themselves of a stubborn illness, or just to experience the sense of wonder along with them when they meet their real or higher self.
Without hypnosis, none of these remarkable journeys would be possible.
