Hypnosis Accepted by the Mayo Clinic

Research Shows Effectiveness of Hypnotherapy

 

In an article published in NaturalNews, author Steven G. Jones wrote:

The effectiveness of hypnosis is often questioned because the cause of hypnotic phenomenon is not yet known. Research has been conducted on hypnosis for hundreds of years. Thousands of studies have been performed, yet the origination of hypnosis has not yet been realized. The Mayo Clinic has found hypnosis to be very effective and beneficial with a variety of disorders. Hypnosis does not always work the same way for everyone, but its effectiveness cannot be denied.

The Mayo Clinic defines hypnosis as being an altered state of consciousness. There are many changes that occur while a person is in a trance-like state. A person is able to focus their attention in a more direct way while under hypnosis. People are also more open to suggestion, which often helps people make changes in their thought process and in their actions. While in a hypnotic state, people tend to be less critical and more believing. The Mayo Clinic believes that the purpose of hypnosis is a therapeutic technique to help you understand and gain more control over your behavior, actions, emotions, or physical well-being.

Researchers and doctors at the Mayo Clinic are not sure how exactly hypnosis works, but current research points to a mind-body connection through nerves, hormones, and chemicals in the brain and body. Hypnosis is best used in conjunction with other forms of therapy. The Mayo Clinic lists the following benefits of hypnosis: changing negative habits (stop-smoking), reduce stress and anxiety, control pain, relieve irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), lower blood pressure, reduce frequency and intensity of migraines, treat asthma, and heal skin disorders.

The Mayo Clinic also puts many hypnosis myths to rest. Many people think that under hypnosis, they will have no free will. This is untrue; under hypnosis people have a heightened state of concentration, but they are in complete control. Another myth is that a hypnotherapist can control people under hypnosis. The truth is that a hypnotherapist serves as a guide and cannot make anyone do something that they do not want to do. It is also not true that people can become hypnotized without consent. Hypnosis involves a person`s willingness to participate (Goal Oriented Hypnotherapy).

The Mayo Clinic is a one of the leaders in research in the medical field. Their research of hypnotherapy is evidence-based (Hypnosis). They are a reputable source of information on the topic of hypnotherapy and medicine.

Migraine Headaches-Case study- Past life origin and healing

SEVERE MIGRANE HEADACHES

 

                                 BACKGROUND

 

IN DECEMBER OF 2005, A CLIENT CAME TO ME PRESENTING SYMPTOMS OF SEVERE MIGRANE HEADACHES. DURING A HISTORY INTAKE SHE INFORMED ME THAT SINCE HER BABY HAD BEEN BORN, THREE MONTHS EARLIER, SHE HAD BEEN GETTING 17 MIRGANES A WEEK. WHEN ASKED WHEN SHE FIRST REMEMBERED GETTING THE FIRST MIRGRANE IN THIS LIFE, SHE RECOUNTED IT HAPPENING AT THE ONSET OF HER FIRST MENSTUATION. HOWEVER, SHE WOULD ONLY GET THEM ONCE A MONTH AND ONLY ONE DAY OF HER PERIOD.

 

THIS CLIENT TOLD ME SHE HAD BEEN TO MANY DOCTORS, ESPECIALLY NEUROLOGIST, TO SEEK THEIR HELP. THEY FOUND NOTHING ORGANICALLY WRONG WITH HER AND ONLY OFFERED PAIN KILLERS. SHE FELT THAT THEY DIDN’T HELP AND THAT SHE COULD NOT FUNCTION WITH HER NEW BABY IN THIS PAIN. WHEN A HEADACHE WOULD COME ON SHE WOULD HAVE TO GO TO BED, WITH BLINDS SHUT AND THE ROOM DARKENED. OFTEN SHE WOULD VOMIT DUE TO THE PAIN. SHE SAID THESE MADE HER FEEL “TRAPPED.”

 

I RECEIVED ADDITIONAL HISTORY ABOUT HER FAMILY, HER HUSBAND AND THE CHILD BIRTH, NONE OF WHICH SOUNDED SUSPICIOUS REGARDING THE HEADACHES.

                                            

                                                TREATMENT

 

 

 

WE AGREED THAT I WOULD PUT HER UNDER HYPNOSIS AND ASK THAT SHE GO TO THE ROOT OF THE MIRGRANES, TO SEE WHAT WAS CAUSING THEM.

 

WHEN UNDER, MY CLIENT WENT INTO A PAST LIFETIME AROUND THE EARLY 1800S. SHE SAW HERSELF LIVING IN A SMALL HOUSE IN THE COUNTRY, ON A FARM. WHEN ASKED TO LOOK BACK OVER THE FIRST 10 YEARS OF HER LIFE TO SEE IF ANYTHING SIGNIFICANT HAPPENED, SHE CONTRACTED, AND STARTED CRYING. SHE SAID HER FATHER HAD RAPED HER AFTER HER MOTHER PAST AWAY. SHE BECAME PREGNANT, FEELING “TRAPPED” AND ASHAMED. SHE STAYED AT HOME MOST OF THE TIME DOING CHORES AND DISASSOCIATING TO COPE. THROUGH BREATH WORK AND VISUALIZATION I HAD HER RELEASE THE FEELING OF BEING “TRAPPED” AND THE DEEP SHAME SHE CARRIED. SHE WAS 13 YEARS OLD WHEN THIS HAPPENED.

 

AS I PROGRESSED HER FURTHER TO 15YEARS OLD , SHE SAW HERSELF WALKING IN TOWN WITH HER BABY. FEELING OUT OF HER BODY, SHE GOT HIT BY A HORSE AND WAGON, HITTING HER HEAD ON THE STREET AND DYING.  DEATH CAME SO FAST SHE HAD NO TIME TO THINK OF ANYTHING BEFORE SHE DIED.

 

I TOOK HER TO FIND A GUIDE IN THE SPIRITUAL DEMENSION SO WE COULD ASK SOME QUESTIONS. WHEN SHE FOUND HER GUIDE WE ASKED HOW THAT LIFE AFFECTED HER MIRGRANES IN THIS LIFE .

WE WERE TOLD THAT THE RAPE, PREGNANCY, AND DEATH WERE ALL TIED TOGETHER. THE HEAD TRAUMA AT DEATH RESULTED AS SHE CARRIED THE TRAUMA OF CONCEPTION. THIS EXPLAINED WHY SHE PRESENTED WITH HEADACHES BOTH AT MENSTRUATION AND AFTER CHILD BIRTH. THE BODY ‘S CELLULAR MEMORY WAS TRIGGERD BY HER CONNECTION TO AGE AND THE CONCEPTION OF HER BABY. CONCEPTION AND HEAD TRAUMA ONCE AGAIN REVISITED.

 

                                              RESULTS

 

MY CLIENT CALLED SEVERAL MONTHS AFTER OUR SESSION TO INFORM ME THAT HER MIGRANES HAD DISAPPEARED BUT THAT SHE OCCASIONALLY STILL GETS HEADACHES.

WHEN WE ASKED HER GUIDE HOW MANY LIFETIMES DOES SHE NEED TO RELEASE FROM TO CLEAR THE HEADACHES, WE WERE TOLD 3 MORE.

 

MY CLIENT CAN NOW FUNCTION AS A MOTHER AND WIFE, WITHOUT FEELING ‘TRAPPED”, OR IN SEVERE PAIN. SHE WILL BE COMING TO ME TO DO THE OTHER 3 LIFETIMES SO WE CAN CLEAR ALL OF HER HEADACHES.

 

MY CLIENTS DOCTORS ARE AMAZED THAT SHE NO LONGER SUFFERS FROM HER MIGRANES.

What is causing your weight? Can you lift it out of the Past?

We have all struggled with weight issues, be it that we need to lose weight or gain weight. We try diets, exercise, hypnosis, and psychotherapy among other “solutions” for resolve. Most of the time they don’t work.

Could it be that our weight issue comes from a past life? The following client came in with her weight issue and was surprised to find that it did in fact come from a past life.

The following is an excerpt from my book as one of many stories or lifetimes causing eating issues.

 

 

 

Weight Issues

 

 

I Don’t Deserve to Eat

 

 

Silvia came to see me about feelings of unworthiness but one issue was causing her health to fail. Silvia was anorexic. She became frightened that the last doctor told her if she didn’t put on some weight soon that her organs would start failing her and she could die,

 

Intention:

 

            Let’s go back to the root of your eating disorder.

 

 

Silvia saw herself as a ten-year-old boy outside, working in a field but with no hair and what looked to her like pajamas. She felt great fear, as soon as I asked her how she felt emotionally. When I asked her when she saw her mother last, she remarked she was about eight years old and that there were many people yelling as they took her away from her frightened mother. Silvia was shipped off to a concentration camp along with other German children like herself. She felt very alone and hungry.

They found out that she knew how to play the piano. Silvia was quite an accomplished pianist at seven years old. Her mother started giving her lessons at four years old and she played like she had played for lifetimes. She would create and compose music for the piano as early as five and learned new music very quickly.

When the soldiers heard about her they requested she come to their quarters to play. They would reward her with fine food and drink. Silvia learned very quickly to please the soldiers in order to eat well. She would feel guilty since so many were so hungry. Silvia was also not a very strong boy. She was a bit frail in that life and was grateful not to have to carry the heavy stones that the other children were ordered to carry and not to have to get so dirty outside doing that chore. She had to share a bed with those other children on a dusty mattress with a torn grey blanket that smelled.

At age 15 Silvia said the Americans were trying to help and the war was almost over. Her job was not only piano playing anymore but to take her fellow Jews to the showers or ovens to be gassed or burned. She felt so much guilt that not only could she eat and stay clean but that she had to betray her own kind.

Silvia would sneak some food now to others to help rid her from the deep guilt she held from her new jobs.  On one evening a soldier followed Silvia back to the barrack to witness her giving some of her food to the others. They pulled her out in front of the others and shot her for sharing her food.

 

Last Thoughts:

If I kept my food I wouldn’t be put to death!

 

Lesson:

Selflessness

 

Awareness and Connection:

Silvia understood the importance of food in that life. She survived only because of her piano playing.  She lived for years well fed and clean while her family and others starved and died around her. She carried so much guilt that finally when she had to bring the others to meet their death she no longer could take her guilt and gave them what food she could. Silvia saw why she felt she didn’t deserve to eat in this life. She felt she should be punished for all of those who died in the camps due to starvation, when she could eat.

We discussed that during those horrific times one had to focus on their own survival in order to stay alive. It was not her fault that the Germans made her do such awful jobs at the end, and if she rebelled, she surely would have been put to death even earlier.

The soldiers liked Silvia in that life due to her talents alone, but put her down when ever they got the chance. Watching her fellow Jews and herself be treated worse than dogs, Silvia came into this life feeling unworthy. Food was her only resolve of self-punishment here since others died due to starvation in that life.

Silvia was not surprised that she was in that lifetime. She always got physically ill when anyone would mention the camps or if she had any contact with any information about the camps. She was sad but fully understood what she was doing. I explained that she should now honor those that died of starvation and feed her well. This way she could feel healthy and worthy of being a Jew and a human being. It has taken months for Silvia to change her habits but she is finally eating well and honoring all those that perished during the holocaust from starvation.

Can we treat Children with ADD/ADHD using Past Life Regression Therapy?

ADD/ADHD has become one of the most common diagnosed problems in our schools. 

This little boy was one of those children that the schools were ready to treat medically, yet when talking to his mother, who said he was so different at home, it was to deaf ears. Luckily he had a mom who cared enough to seek other help since she felt something was amiss.

 

CASE STUDY 

NIGHTMARES AND ACTING OUT AT SCHOOL

 In October of 2002 I received a call from a frantic mother. Her son (we will call Joe), six years old, had been having nightmares every night for the past few months. She said it was the same nightmare, about the same thing each time. He would dream of a war, describing the gunfire and helicopters with missiles on the sides. He would wake up screaming in fear.

The mother also explained her concerns about her son’s school behavior. The teacher told her that whenever he was on line he would push the child behind him, always turning around or getting out of line when told to stay in line.  Also in circle activities he would not stay seated but go to one side of the room and hide. The teacher felt his behavior was probably a form of ADHD and they wanted to test him to see.

 The mother was baffled and horrified since this was so out of character for his behavior at home.

The teacher explained to her that many times children act differently in different environments.

The mother was feeling powerless since the school insisted on testing him with a follow up of medication. She came to see if I could help stop the nightmares and see if he had ADHD.

 I received additional information about their family life, his birth and childhood illnesses.  Nothing seemed unusual that would have baring on either the nightmares or acting out in school. Joe’s mother told me the only shows she allows Joe to watch on T.V.  are Barney or Disney cartoons. She had no idea where he would have seen war guns or helicopters.

 TREATMENT

 Since Joe was only six I decided to have him go into trance by drawing. His mother told me that he loved to draw, and children usually slide into trance easily with this method. I asked Joe if he could draw a picture of the dream he has about the war. He said, sure, and drew an amazing drawing for his age. He drew a picture of soldiers in a trench on one side of the paper, shooting, and soldiers lying dead on the ground. On the other side of the paper, he drew another trench with soldiers shooting back. In the air he drew a helicopter with missiles on the sides. I was so surprised to see how detailed and sophisticated the drawing was.

I asked him who are these soldiers in this trench (left side of paper)? He responded, “Oh, that’s the Chinese.” Again surprised, I said,”Oh, well who are the soldiers in this trench (right side of paper)?  He said, “Oh, that is the Russians.” Again surprised at his knowing the Chinese and Russian Cultures, I asked his mother if she knew he knew of them. She said she didn’t unless he learned this at school. Later we found out they never discussed these cultures in Kindergarten or in first grade.

I asked Joe was he there in the picture? He said “ Yep!” He pointed to the Chinese and said, “ I am in there.” I asked him if he died there? He said, “ No, I went home.”  I asked him where his home was and he turned over the paper to draw another picture. He drew a beautiful picture of a pagoda-looking house, two stick figures he claimed were his parents, and a small bridge over a stream, and another stick figure he said was he.  He told me he lived in that house and that those were his parents. He went home to live there after the war. It was very peaceful. I asked if he died there and he said no. He then proceeded to turn the page to show me where he died.  This time he drew a cemetery with tombstones and rain falling. He pointed to one of the tombstones and said that’s where he died. I asked how did he die and he said, “ A man shot him in the back.” I asked if he knew the man, and he said no. I told him he didn’t have to worry here since no one would shoot him in the back here. I told him it was just a dream and it is over now. I also told him he didn’t need to have the dream any more since we were able to draw it and talk about it.

 Joe and his mother left with promises to report any changes in his dreaming.  We agreed to approach the school behavior in the next session. It was enough for one afternoon. After observing Joe in our session, I was surprised to hear about his school behavior as well. He was a sweet, kind, respectful little boy, who seemed to delight in life. I was curious what the trigger was in school.

 

RESULTS

 Two weeks later, Joe’s mother called all excited. Joe did not have one dream about the war. The nightmares were over. She was most excited that Joe’s teacher called asking what she did at home since Joe was behaving much better at school. He was now able to stand on line without pushing the child behind him or getting out of line and he remained in the circle activities. As we talked I realized that Joe’s acting out to those BEHIND him was a result of being shot in the back. Joe was afraid to have his back turned with someone behind him or he could get shot again. This was not conscious behavior but cellular memory being triggered by the circumstance.  During the circle activities he would go to the other side of the room and hide. Being in a group situation triggered Joe’s cellular memory about being in a group fighting the enemy. He retreated to a trench like safe place in the classroom and hid.  Now he did not have a need to hide any longer since the story was complete. After the regression the trauma was released with the negative emotions, so Joe could behave normally to these situations.  Also, due to this release the dreams were brought to consciousness and therefore no longer manifested subconsciously. Joe was his old self once again and no testing was necessary for ADHD.

 We, as a society have been too quick to assess the behavior of our children when behavior issues present themselves. Medication is offered too readily to treat these problems. Not every child with behavior problems fall into the category of ADD or ADHD. Statistics show that 3 to 5 % of the nations population are diagnosed with these syndromes.  We need to take a harder look at these children and perhaps go to the root of the behavior under hypnosis, to determine if the behavior is even related to this lifetime.
