While I was attending a workshop in Pennsylvania, one of my clients with a serious impulse control problem, who had been doing well with regular trips to the Multiverse, "picked up" and started using drugs again, and gambled away almost all of her money in Atlantic City. "You've got to do something more," she said quietly.

I knew that she had been raised as a Roman Cathlolic. After taking her to the Multiverse, I suggested that she was becoming aware of a consiciousness beyond her own, and blending completely with this embodiment of infinite, unbounded, and everlasting love, to which she could communicate all her deepest wants and needs and experience them being completely met, finally suggesting that she was fully blending with God Himself. I then suggested that she could carry this presence back with her, and that it would change her life immeasurably for the better. I brought her out of hypnosis without taking her through the rainbow on the way back. She opened her eyes with a beautiful smile, and appeared to be rather qyiet as we scheduled her for two appointments a week instead of one. I did not question her about how much she remembered, because I thought it would be best if I left that up to her. 

Of course, i didn't tell her anything that was not communicated to her by the priest whenever she took communion. What's going to empower her recovery is her strong love for her son and the firm belief that she is going to improve, with hypnosis serving as a catalyst to enable these elements to combine in the proper manner. 

A lot of hypnotists seem to be goiing in this direction with the appropriate dlient. And I do have a strong belief that she is going to improve!

Simon,

 

I don't pretend to know what "truth" is, and I have no way of telling. But, In accordance with the teachings of post-modern constructivism, my job as a therapist is to help clients to construct a reality that will help them to live better lives, regardless of whether it is objectively "true" or not, and regardless of the reality that I may construct for myself  If it helps to keep my client "off the sauce" and out of the gambling dens where she cannot control her spending, then I don't care what beliefs she is willing to acept about the truth of things which are fundamentally unknowable. 

 

Don.

A few years ago, I had a client who said that he wanted to feel the presence of God within, which he'd never accomplished by prayer and meditation. He had felt the presence of God when doing good works or singing praise, so I just elicited that feeling and pasted it onto prayer and meditation.

The punchline: He was a retired priest.

Hmmm. . . . Maybe we can change lives with this stuff better than they can -- and they invented it!

Over my many years of practice I have had the privilege of helping an increasing number of clients be able to access Divine Wisdom through a spiritual part of the subconscious. This is the topic of my one-day preconference workshop at HypnoThoughts Live this year, based on my latest book, with contributions by well-respected hypnotherapists around the world have also discovered how to help clients to do likewise, often with amazing results.

I usually ask the spiritual part how it wishes to be addressed. Here are some of the many responses I've heard to that question: God, Creator, Christ, Yahweh, Divine Light, Divine Love, Higher Self, Michael (the Archangel), Gabriel, etc. More than once the response has been: "I am he/she/they with no name but with many names; but for purposes of this session, you may call me 'I AM' because I am who I am..."

Hi Roy,
 
I wonder if you have ever had, or know somebody who has had, experience with a purely evil or demonic part. For example, in the New Testament gospels of Mark and Luke, as I'm sure you are aware, Jesus asks a man or men who are apparently possessed by devils, "What is your name?" and the reply was, "My name is Legion, for we are many."
 
One thinks, perhaps, of dissociative identity disorder (formerly multiple personality disorder), or of auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia, which often involve hearing one or more voices hurling insults and obscenities at the sufferer and demanding that they commit suicide, but n my experience, they never say constructive things like, "Floss your teeth," "Shine your shoes," or "Get a job!")
 
Best regards,
 
Don

  Hi Roy,   I wonder if you have ever had, or know somebody who has had, experience with a purely evil or demonic part. ...[snip] ...  

Sometimes during parts therapy a part is so negative and destructive that another part accuses it of being an "entity" or "demon" or "dark spirit", etc. Whenever this happens, I immediately invite the Higher Power part to emerge and provide words of Divine wisdom.
Often the Higher Power part gives instructions both to the other parts as well as to the negative part (by reminding it of its original job for the client). Gordon Emmerson, the protoge of Watkins and Watkins, calls such negative parts "vaded parts" because of their emotions getting negative from past experiences. (See his books on Resource Therapy.)
Sometimes the Higher Power part directs me to send the entity into the light in the name of Christ, or Jesus, or in the name of "Divine Light", etc.; and occasionally asks the client to invite an Angel to escort the entity away. When the client's Higher Power part directs me to do so, I follow said instructions. It is not my job to decide whether it is a real entity, an introject, or a figment of the client's imagination...because if the client is empowered, why should it be important for me to determine whether or not it was a real entity? 
Only once in all my years of practice did a part immediately claim it was an entity without first being accused by another part. In that instance, I immediately called out the client's Higher Power, who instructed the client to ask Jesus and Michael the archangel to escort the entity away. Afterwards, the client told me that the entity was cast into a black hole because it was too dark to enter the Light.

Don G.: experience with a purely evil or demonic part

Demonic energy is very challenging to clear and requires Divine assistance.
Roy Hunter: Sometimes during parts therapy a part is so negative and destructive that another part accuses it of being an "entity" or "demon" or "dark spirit", etc.

The accusation or "claim of wrongdoing" made by another part is one way how the entity is identified. This is helpful in knowing what's required for the clearing to take place. 
Roy Hunter: Whenever this happens, I immediately invite the Higher Power part to emerge and provide words of Divine wisdom.

That is another wise approach.
Roy Hunter: Often the Higher Power part gives instructions both to the other parts as well as to the negative part (by reminding it of its original job for the client).

 
This concept of a "negative part" (which I'd call a "dark" entity) is somewhat misleading in the aforesaid comment. Better I feel is the term "masquerading" part (if part is even referenced at all), since this "dark" entity is not a native (having no original job at birth, unless it's an "intruding carryover" ), and it interferes with rather than supports the "light". Ultimately for restorative healing to occur, the "dark" entity needs to be expelled from the "light" body system, since it is not a supportive part of it.
