Mind matters

*Individual results may vary with hypnosis and are dependent on many variables
including the client’s attitude, follow-through and adherence to the program. Certain issues or concerns may require a medical referral before any session in hypnosis.

Everything that is seen, read or heard is contained in the subconscious memory, and Hypnosis may be used to access this information.

A short time ago an older man came in for Hypnosis because he felt that he was losing his memory.  He said that it was difficult for him to retain what he was reading.  It has become commonplace to associate memory failure with the aging process, and this gentleman felt that he simply needed to accept the inevitable.

The man emphasized that he would like to be able to read the bible and remember what he had read.  He also wanted to start a new business but was afraid he would not be able to do the paperwork.

In Hypnosis, the man recalled when he was in the first grade he could not read as well as the rest of the children and he heard the teacher telling him he was, “slow” and then seated in the back of the room with the other “slow” children.  By the time the little boy was in third grade he knew his place in the back of the room and by fifth grade he was firmly entrenched in his own “slowness”.

When asked to look back at that little boy and all that he had accomplished as he grew through adulthood, the man easily recognized that he was never slow.  He also remembered that his parents never learned to read and the he simply needed help with reading, as many children do.

After the Hypnosis session the man shook his head and noted, “Fear’s a terrible thing, I’ve been afraid all my life, afraid that something was wrong with me.  Now I understand.”  We discussed adult reading programs, and I suggested that he visit our main library and register into one.  I followed up with a phone call to this gentleman, and asked if he had started his reading program.  He told me that his new business was very successful, and he hadn’t found the time.

In many cases, as with our older gentleman, the cause may not be obvious at first.  Through hypnosis, change may take place on many levels.  It’s all about the mind, body and spirit; we are what we think.
