Spiritual hypnosis

I have more specific information from my client as to exactly what she seeks to learn. This may either open up the spectrum of instructors or narrow it. I don't know. She wants to get back in touch with her higher self to live more in line with working out some of her karmic lessons. She feels she used to be fairly psychic, channeled "helpers" from the other side and felt the presence of her guides. She reports that she had a series of life events that caused her to put aside her spiritual practices for several years. Now that her life has settled down she doesn't seem to be able to get back in touch with her higher self or her guides. She originally got into this practice through hypnosis and thinks taking a class would help her reconnect. Does this additional information help? This is certainly not my field so any advice that I could pass along would be appreciated. My personal note is that this woman probably won't be able to travel due to health issues (why she's seeing me. I'm good but I'm not Harry Potter) so anything on-line or a book or recording is probably going to work out best. Thanks for all your help.

Spiritual hypnosis

My client is not looking for past life regression per se but rather the realm of opening up to the spiritual world and higher self. She's done PLR and not found it suitable for what she wants she says. She's looking for karmic connections, purposes, etc. I'm not 100% sure what exactly she's looking for but she describes it as a connection with Spirit. Sorry, that's all I can tell you.

I need your help ASAP with a physical problem

It's a scam. A bunch of us have gotten the same post. Move on.

HOWEVER, it is possible. I use hypnosis all the time to grow new bone for unresponsive breaks and to remove pannus from rheumatoid arthritis clients joints. I have personally removed a ping pong size pannus from my left knee. And, I have had several clients whose bones were not healing after a break in spite of really intensive medical procedures. We used hypnosis and the bones grew together in record time. And, soft tissues respond even more quickly. In 2005, Keith Clarke published a book about using hypnosis to achieve this named "You're Sharp Enough To Be Your Own Surgeon."

Seven Things You Should Know About Pain Science

A few of us have good programs in re-training people's perceptions to not experience pain and suffering. Me, Michael Ellner, Scott Sandland, Dan Cleary, John Butler. Everybody has a different approach but they all work. I would suggest you study as many different approaches as you can find.

They say...

I agree with Barry. Most hypnotists out there are poorly trained. Since their instruction has been crap what they do is crap. To me, depth testing is irrelevant. Depth does not necessarily correlate with greater acceptance of suggestions. However, using convincers is imperative. Unfortunately, I rarely see a hypnotist who uses convincers. 

While Barry is saddened by the majority of training courses being crap I don't think it matters that much. The people who are going to rise to the top of the heap are not the ones limited by their initial education.(And, I think that applies pretty much across the board for anything you learn/do.)  I know I got poor initial training. But, I didn't stop there. I went on to learn from everyone I could--both general classes and specialty classes. I read everything I could get my hands on. I practiced. I struggled. And, I continue to on a daily basis. Ok, rant is over....for now.

But, I think the numbers you've gotten are crap also. All my clients come from physician referrals. My client population has not "self selected" to be in my chair. Some doctor gave the client a prescription for a narcotic and my card/brochure. They were instructed to see me at least once in the next 30 days and the doctor would give them a refill. It was intimated that if they did not see me they would not qualify for a refill (not sure if it was ever overtly stated or not). So, my clients came to get their ticket punched for their refill, not because at some level they had hope that the hypnosis would help them. And, in 20+ years I've only had 2 clients that did not get some degree of success on the first session. I certainly have not seen the sediment and I think there isn't much, if any, difference between the cream and the milk. I've had clients who were easier to hypnotize than others but I can't state that easy of being hypnotized correlated with better suggestion acceptance. My problem is keeping people OUT of somnambulism, not getting them into that state.(It isn't appropriate for EVERYTHING.) So, due to what I've seen in my practice, I think if you pre-frame the session correctly almost everyone will reach somnambulism by session 2 at the latest. And, that is not because I am a great hypnotist. I'm not. I've had a couple of good ideas that turned out pretty well but as a hypnotic technician I am not the best. I don't think I am crap but I also know I'm not the most skilled either.

Spasmodic Dysphonia

Oh, yeah. Anxiety is so rampant that I almost always combine an anxiety reframe with every client I see--just in case.

Spasmodic Dysphonia

I have actually seen 2 clients for this problem. Both of them overcame it. You've gotten really good suggestions from Barry and Michael. 

One client had his vocal cords nicked/bruised by a surgical intubation gone wrong and, as a result, developed dysphonia. The other developed it after an emotional trauma combined with a physical illness--he was vulnerable due to illness and then had a traumatic event. Result was spasmodic dysphonia. I used a parts reframe and then gave each of them a radio dial similar to that in a car. They could turn the volume up or down and even change stations for something more pleasing. Also did a cellular cleanse and Ellner's emotional detox. Worked on both.
