The past is fixed. It can't be changed. But...

what you can easily learn to do is change your opinion of it.
With hypnosis, we can help your deep inner mind begin to let go of the negative feelings you've experienced.
The facts will always be the same,
but you have the right to ease your mind into letting go of frightening emotions you've felt in the past.

Finally free!

The sky is blue, it shouldn't be grey.

A friend emailed me a year a go about someone who had an argument with her alcoholic father and had come to her because she had a knot in her stomach and felt her solar plexus chakra was blocked.

My response was the problem lay in the young ladies relationship with her father. She was diverting the problem by manifesting something in her abdomen.

Misuse of the Power of Suggestion

The Hidden Power - Thomas Troward - 1921
Troward talks of "shop assitants being trained to decoy or compel unknowing purchasers into buying what they do not want".
And of the unsuspecting purchaser? They will say: "How in the name of fortune did I come to buy this rubbish?"

Still prevalent today. As he wrote then:
"This recognition of the power of suggestion is in many instances taking a most undesirable form, and I commend to your notice, in support of this observation, numerous advertisements in certain classes of magazines--many of you must have seen many specimens of that kind--offering for a certain sum of money to put you in the way of getting personal influence, mental power, power of suggestion, as the advertisements very unblushingly put it, for any purpose that you may desire."

Hypnosis is about creating positive change.
IT IS NOT about influencing other people.

The Possibilities in Hypnosis, Where the Patient Has the Power

In effect, hypnosis is the epitome of mind-body medicine. It can enable the mind to tell the body how to react, and modify the messages that the body sends to the mind. It has been used to counter the nausea of pregnancy and chemotherapy; dental and test-taking anxiety; pain associated with surgery, root canal treatment and childbirth; fear of flying and public speaking; compulsive hair-pulling; and intractable hiccups, among many other troublesome health problems.

What's your goal? II

In her book “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Hypnosis,” Dr. Temes points out that success in achieving your goal is the best proof that you were really hypnotized. She also suggests a second or third session if you didn’t quite reach your goal after the first try.

The Hypnotic State

A completely natural state which we experience every day between sleeping and waking. It is a state of intensified concentration and awareness, a state of heightened receptivity to positive suggestions, a state of deep relaxation. It is similar to the meditative state. All hypnosis is self hypnosis.

How You Can Tell If You Were Hypnotized #2

You may have a feeling of daydreaming, of floating, of detachment.

As you're entering hypnosis, there will be an extreme concentration on the hypnotist's voice. If you hear other sounds, they will not bother you. They may be faint or beyond your awareness. To you, the only pertinent sound is that of the hypnotist's voice.

You may experience a strong belief that you can carry out the suggestions, from the hypnotist or from yourself, or that you can reach your goal. That feeling will remain after you have returned to the normal state.

You may lose track of conscious time. Twenty minutes may seem like five minutes. You may or may not remember everything or anything that happened while you were under hypnosis.

You may achieve a state of such relaxation that you didn't feel like opening your eyes on command and may even have resented the suggestion. You may have tried to open your eyes before the command but found that you couldn't.


How You Can Tell If You Were Hypnotized

Under hypnosis, you may feel numb or tingling, light or heavy. Your eyes may water and your eyelids may flutter. Your saliva glands may overproduce, causing you to swallow frequently.

As the hypnotist gives his suggestions, you may have thought to yourself: "I didn't have to follow the suggestions; I just felt like it. I could have resisted, but it was so easy to go along with it." Under hypnosis, there is no carrying out the suggestions because you had to obey. You may act on the suggestions out of a compelling desire to do so. You may even carry out the suggestion without knowing it.

Sometimes, people under hypnosis may be in an uncomfortable position, may have an itch or an urge to swallow cough or sneeze and do nothing about it because it requires too much effort.

You may experience things that don't normally occur. For example, you may be unaware of your body.

All these phenomena are indications that you experienced hypnosis, but they are not always present during hypnosis.

The true test is whether you are making progress toward the goal you've set for yourself.


A word of caution. Guided meditations either in a group or listening to a CD makes you highly suggestible to what's said.

Frequently asked questions #4

Q. I attended a group tapping demonstration and one woman broke down. Will I break down under hypnosis?
A. This is a legitimate concern. Rather than deal with issues or incidents when they occur we all suppress them in our subconscious mind. These suppressed emotions can emerge later in life and affect out health, relations and even our relationship to our work or money. The tapping merely triggered some latent emotion suppressed by that individual.

Yes it may occur during certain hypnosis sessions but hypnotists are trained to deal with it. Hypnosis is an effective way to release these subconscious blocks. And removing these blocks helps you move forward.

Bear in mind your hypnotist/hypnotherapist is not a psychologist or psychotherapist. If it's beyond their scope they will refer you to the proper counselling.

Smoking Programs

Are highly individualized to the needs of the client.
Hypnosis removes the urges, cravings and obsessions successfully, but the client needs to quit smoking.
Most clients need a 4 week cessation program to make the lifestyle changes as they progress towards their stop date.

Some decide to do it every other day over 4 sessions.

Some choose one two hour intensive session. They go through all the various scenarios of situations in which they smoke with their hypnotist and discuss alternatives. They're taught they have another choice and can easily function without them. Then during the actual hypnosis session they lose the urge. They have the will power to quit on the spot. They are in control. They are masters of their destiny. And they're taught self hypnosis.

The client is the judge of what's right for them.

If you wanted to quit smoking, you would not need hypnosis. You would just quit. However, part of you wants to quit smoking and part of you doesn't want to quit.

Time Line Therapy

With hypnosis clients may be regressed back to the time of any incident or age, and recall the event(s) without experiencing any of the emotions.

Then reframe, release or forgive if they choose to do so and are willng. The client always has choices and decides what they need at the time.

The client is always in control.

New choices -> New awareness -> New possibilities

Hypnosis is not New Age

Phineas P. Quimby (1802-1866) who spent 20 years healing some 12000+ people and studying the power of the mind under hypnosis (then mesmerism). Quimby is considered the father of New Thought.
This was some 100 years before Freud discovered the Ego.
Quimby used his own terminology to describe the same thing.
Quimby treated the cause, not the effect. Which was always a belief in the mind.
Quimby was a pioneer in the power of the mind and the
power of belief.
And how the mind projects what we believe.
Change Your mind. Change Your Life.

New Age on the other hand tends to externalize things.
The New Age Movement is generally traced back to the teachings of Theosophy and Madame Helena Blavatsky (1831-1891).
Alice Ann Bailey (1880 – 1949) was influenced by Blavatsky.
Similarily Ageless Wisdom Teachings have been communicated through individuals such as Helena Blavatsky, founder of the Theosophical Society, and later by Alice A. Bailey and Helena Roerich.

Are you a victim of external circumstances? No.

You can change your mind and change your life.

Mental Science.

Your beliefs are stored in your subconscious mind.
Perception makes projection.
What you believe to be true will be true, your truth. But not necessarily the Truth.
Hypnosis helps unlock the unconscious guilt, shame, beliefs or perceptions that are hindering your health or relationships.
Do you feel stuck?

In 1836, Charles Poyen St. Sauveur, a French disciple of Franz Anton Mesmer gave a public demonstration of mesmerism (an early form of hypnotism) in Belfast Maine which captured the attention of Phineas Parker Quimby. While experimenting with two of his friends, Quimby discovered he too, could mesmerize.

Two brothers, Henry and Lucius Burkmar were particularly receptive to Quimby's mesmeric influence. His greatest success was with Lucius and together they traveled throughout Maine and New Brunswick giving their own public demonstrations in the early to middle 1840's.

These early experiments with Lucius Burkmar provided Quimby with an open window to the mind.

From 1847 until his passing in 1866,
Phineas Parkhurst Quimby devoted his life to healing the sick. In the Fall of 1859 he opened an office at the International House Hotel in the city of Portland, Maine. His youngest son George Albert Quimby worked as his office clerk. Additional secretarial services were supplied by two of his new patients, the sisters Emma and Sarah Ware.

Dr. Quimby, as he was now known, treated over 12,000+ patients during those years. Most notable were Warren Felt Evans, a practitioner and author of mental healing; Julius and Annetta (Seabury) Dresser, early organizers of New Thought; and Mary M. Patterson (Mary Baker Eddy), of the Christian Science movement.

Suffering from overwork and exhaustion, Quimby closed the Portland practice in the late Spring of 1865 and retired to his home in Belfast.

He made his transition on January 16, 1866.
