QHHT: The gold standard of past life regression

Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique (QHHT) was created by Dolores Cannon, who died in 2014, leaving behind the legacy of a lifetime’s work in past life regression and authoring 19 books published worldwide.


This history of the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique

Born in St Louis in 1931, Dolores married a naval officer and followed him to far-flung places as he covered his naval assignments. In the 1960s, she and her husband began experimenting with hypnosis to help people kick habits, such as smoking and weight loss. Some years on, one of their clients spontaneously regressed to what appeared to be a past life, and this single event changed Dolores’ life; heralding 40 years dedicated to practising past life regression with thousands of clients, whilst simultaneously doing exhaustive background research and writing books. 

The dawning of QHHT

In the early 2000s, Dolores decided to name her advanced past life regression system ‘Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique’. Unlike classic past life regression, QHHT enables communication with that all-knowing part of us that Dolores named the Subconscious, and others prefer to call the Higher Self, the Over-Soul or the Super Conscious. This is the greater part of us that has a closer connection to The Source, God, Universe, or whatever name we choose to give that ‘something’ that is the originator of all-that-is.

This part, which I call the Higher Self, knows everything about us, both in our current life and all the other lives we may have lived, and will happily reveal the cause of mental or physical ailments. It also has limitless knowledge and the ability to heal the physical body.

How I came to be a QHHT practitioner

By the time I met Dolores in 2009, I had been conducting past life regression sessions for eight years, after doing my initial training in the UK and then travelling to the USA to study with Dr Brian Weiss, whose first book, ‘Many Lives, Many Masters,’ had already become a worldwide bestseller. During those early years, my clients mainly sought my services for help with their emotional issues, using 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy, but I was interested to note that with each passing year, my past life regression sessions were growing in number, and being a graduate of the Weiss Institute brought me a big surge in new clients.

Wanting to further my knowledge of the esoteric, I was excited to be given an opportunity to train with Dolores and become a certified QHHT Practitioner. Dolores was a lady with strong opinions, and I was initially a little dismayed to learn that she was mistrustful of hypnotherapy practitioners who chose to take her course! Despite her views, she was a true professional and a superb teacher, and I quickly came to appreciate how Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique could enable me to give my clients a truly remarkable and often life-changing experience.

How does QHHT differ from past life regression?

In past life regression, the client is encouraged by the regression therapist to access a specific past life to find information to help them understand or resolve specific issues in this life. After exploring the past life, they may go to the time of the death of their past life character and spend time in the inter-life, communicating with their Guides and Wise Beings and gaining further information about the life they have just left.

When clients request QHHT sessions, I explain to them that their Higher Self, and not me, is in charge of selecting the experience that is most relevant to the questions they want answers to, and the issues they want to resolve, so best to have an open mind and no prior expectations. 

For many clients, this experience will be a past life (Earth plane or other planets or universes); for some, it might be a parallel life; a journey through the Universe or exploring the inter-life (between incarnations). Occasionally, if the Higher Self knows this is what the client needs, they may be shown an earlier period in their current life. Whatever their experience, my role is to gently guide them through it and encourage them to effectively relive each event, as if it is happening right now in the present. 

I then request that the client’s Higher Self speaks with me and answers questions, and also does a scan of the client’s body and gives some healing. These requests are rarely refused.

Benefits of sharing and integrating the information

The process of uncovering all this previously withheld information allows the subconscious mind to share it with the conscious mind, thereby bringing it up to the surface and enabling integration. With integration comes wisdom, and as the saying goes: ‘Once you have wisdom you can never lose it.’ For those clients who return for further QHHT sessions, multiple past lives can be explored to discover lessons, recurring issues and karmic ties that have an effect on the present life.

What to expect during Quantum Healing Hypnosis: An outline of QHHT sessions

We begin the journey with a hypnotic induction and deepeners that ensure the client reaches the deepest state of hypnosis, known as somnambulism. In this state, the client is able to easily gain access to the information and answers to their questions. 

If they are shown a past life, the client is facilitated to experience the early years, followed by several important or significant events. We then move to the last day of that life, gathering information on the timing and the cause of death. Once out of the body, they can look back on that life and remember what was the life purpose of that character. Using their spirit eyes, they are able to see all aspects of that life, both positive and negative, and to have a clear recognition of how well they did, and any ‘unfinished business’.

Conversation with the Higher Self

The next phase of the QHHT session is when I ask for permission to speak directly with the Higher Self, and ask the questions previously agreed with the client. The client, still in the somnambulistic state, becomes the equivalent of a simultaneous translator, thereby allowing their Higher Self to speak without the conscious interference of the client. This part of the session should never be rushed, and I am constantly in awe of the wisdom of every client’s Higher Self!

Firstly, I ask why the Higher Self chose to show my client that particular life or experience, and the answer helps the client to further integrate the information and make sense of it. Think of it like joining the dots or finding a vital piece of a jigsaw. Another important question is ‘What is my client’s life purpose?’ followed by ‘And how well is s/he doing?’, and ‘What can s/he do to ensure that the lessons are completed before leaving this life?’

Finally comes the request for the Higher Self to scan the client’s body and report on any physical issues. Think of it as a full-body MRI but without any equipment, electromagnetic fields or radio waves! Healing is then requested, and if the Higher Self agrees it is appropriate, it will be given – usually immediately, but sometimes a period of time may be specified. This healing, without the client’s conscious interference, is given at the sub-atomic, quantum level, and is extraordinarily powerful. 

Frequently asked questions about the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique

There are two questions I am frequently asked about the QHHT process.

What happens if I am shown a traumatic or painful death? Will I feel the pain?

The answer is that you will not feel any physical pain whatsoever, but you may well be aware, albeit very briefly, of some emotional discomfort in your body. This will pass immediately when I direct you to move on.

I’m scared of dying. If you take me through the death process, will it make the fear worse?

The simple answer is no! In fact, the exact opposite. Once clients go through the transition process and become aware of how light and free they feel once they rise out of the physical body, and then have the experience of being drawn into the Light, their old fear of dying completely vanishes!

Does the Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique work?

Here is a recent testimonial client from a client who did several QHHT sessions with me. I believe she has perfectly summed up what I hope to help my clients achieve.

"My remote sessions with Niki Cassar were very powerful. I was very surprised and happy to see that hypnosis is feasible via Zoom. Having tried different techniques/approaches for the purpose of solving issues or activating resources, nothing has been as powerful and efficient in a sustainable way as QHHT. Niki Cassar just intuitively understands how to navigate her client through that process. She is very intuitive, patient, yet determined and leads the process with confidence.

"After the sessions, I felt energised and simply clear in my mind. That state has been enduring, and I do definitely feel a profound shift in my perceptions and awareness."

- Azadeh Jassemi, 43 years old, Zurich*.
