Regression with hypnosis
27th December, 2010
When people ask me, what is regressional hypnotherapy, I am more than happy to explain.
For many people, the idea of regression can seem a little daunting especially if misunderstood. After all, many of us have heard of past life regression for those who believe in past lives, or are simply curious about their own minds in metaphoric terms perhaps.
In fact, regressional therapy can be used in a wide variety of ways including visionary regression, and free association regression which is more commonly known as “Clinical or Analytical Hypnotherapy”, which is widely known amongst professional practitioners as the “crème de la crème” of therapies for its swift, reliable and positive results. The reason results are so efficient? Is simply because during regression, the subconscious mind is allowed to freely do exactly what it wishes to, by searching out memories that may have an emotional link.
Of course most of us can probably relate to a past negative experience, when things simply didn’t go quite the way we had expected them to. A time when things just turned our world upside down, when we may have felt unsure, deeply hurt, afraid, lost or completely alone perhaps. And of course all of these things can mount up over time deep inside the subconscious mind, affecting our daily behaviour through trapped and linked emotions from the past right through to the present day.
Indeed the past can have a very real effect on our future, simply because some events (whether we have recollection or not) have affected us with such intensity, that they have been stored as important data in order to protect us from having to deal with that situation once again. The result? Is that we may act in an unpredictable or undesirable way to certain situations, while not even consciously realising why we have even chosen to act that way in the first place. This is known as a cycle of destructive or negative habitual behaviour.
Most hypnotherapists will commonly use suggestional hypnosis, which fills the subconscious mind with lot’s of positive data allowing gentle and progressive change to take place… however if the issue you have simply isn’t going away, then you may be unconsciously aware that you are indeed in need of a qualified clinical hypnotherapist.
To paint you a clear picture here, let’s just imagine the scenario in metaphoric terms; just imagine you had a painful boil that was in need of urgent attention. Now we can either just wipe and clean the infected area and place a plaster over the top (suggestional hypnosis) or we can lance it, remove the infection, clean it out, and then dress it ready for healing (clinical hypnosis). In other words, to get to the route of an issue where sleeping dogs just won’t lie, we need to release the subconscious trigger that sets off the reaction for that unwanted habit or behaviour that we just didn’t want in the first place.
If on the other hand you are simply curious, and wish to investigate a past life regression, again this is an extremely useful way to relate to your subconscious mind, helping you to gain much insight into your present day perceptions, beliefs and behaviours.
