A new and emerging syndrome; post-abduction syndrome (PAS)

Bringing awareness of a new and emerging syndrome; post-abduction syndrome (PAS). This is an anxiety disorder closely related to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The disorder is characterised by the re-experiencing of abduction-related memories or fragments or distortions of the memories. It is accompanied by symptoms of increased anxiety, which may interfere with functioning in personal, occupational or social areas such as;

- self-destructive and impulsive behaviours
- personality changes
- panic disorders
- agoraphobia
- obsessive-compulsive disorder
- repetitive behaviors or rituals
- depression
- substance abuse/dependence-in an effort to self-medicate
- constant searching for answers to questions they may not be able to voice.

Abductees may feel some part of their psyche is alienated from itself, due to an inaccessibility of the memory of the abduction or any partial or distorted memory of abduction.

Individuals may or may not remember their experiences but, most have symptoms of the trauma. Many seeking help for alien abduction would prefer to be seen as mentally ill and or mentally unbalanced rather than having had these experiences. Many mental health professionals are quick to jump in and categorise those individuals as paranoid, delusional or psychotic because such encounters are so incredible that they are interpreted as pure fantasy. Refuting or rejecting the possibility of the abduction phenomenon does not negate the possibility of its existence.

Whatever your opinion on aliens, extra terrestrials and UFOs, real or not there are far too many people having identical thoughts, feelings, traumas and experiences for them not to be looked into. Too many of today's problems are simply medicated away without being fully understood. Everything holds a message, lesson and key for us. If these experiences are real, they would be the answers of the Universe to change man's course.

Many experiencers seek hypnotherapy to retrieve repressed or partially-repressed memories related to their experiences and in understanding and coping with their aftermath. Hypnosis is a basic tool for the investigation of missing time. Memory blocks open to hypnosis and regression; releasing the full abduction story and experience to the conscious to gain understanding and a measure of control over the disturbing after effects of their experiences. The biggest problem abductees have is the emotional isolation.

Hypnotherapy helps to lessen chronic anxiety caused by dreams and intrusive thoughts that often follow ET experiences and can enable experiencers to gain new insight into years of possible misunderstood or unexplained behaviour. Panic, fears, phobias, depression and obsessive-compulsive behaviors that stem from ET contact often decrease or disappear completely when the experience is carefully and competently explored and reconciled.

It's all about knowing who we are and connecting with the source. By reconnecting with our source of life, we reconnect with each other. After hypnotherapy, many experiencers report that they are finally able to sleep normally and go about their daily lives without the disturbing half-memories and nightmares that had plagued them. They become more confident in many areas of their lives.

Hypnotherapy can bring abduction or contact memories into normal recall, where the experiencer can ultimately come to terms with them. Coming to terms with any issue and understanding is the first step in overcoming it.
