It’s impossible to deny that the world is in a very chaotic state. It’s not that it hasn’t been this way before. What makes it different today is the tsunami of information our clients are subjected to from the moment they wake up until they go to sleep. The states of mind many find themselves in are anything but conducive to the kind of focused, careful work therapy requires.
Not only are many clients overwhelmed with the amount of information they receive, they’re also unduly influenced by the high intensity with which “news” is delivered. They are constantly being urged to go “left” or “right” with their thinking, with very little suggestion that they simply take in the information and decide what they think about it without pressure and persuasion from the outside world.
It might be the desire to belong to one faction or the other that has so many people as of late treating politics with the dogma usually associated with harmful religious cults. Whatever the reason might be for our clients to have their attention so scattered, we have to deal with it.
Talking through the issues that are most pertinent to an individual’s therapeutic journey requires the client to be centered and focused. With their conscious minds so overloaded and preoccupied, keeping conversations on track that are relevant to therapy may be difficult. How can we help our clients get to the issues that will truly make them feel better and have more fulfillment in their lives?
With Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy™, clients are invited to connect current reactions with the source of the feelings that are at the source of them. For example, a person might have a violent reaction to a political figure, and react in ways that are totally out of proportion to what is actually happening in their lives.
Maybe the person looks like or reminds them of someone who was a perpetrator in a childhood trauma. Or, it could be that a change in the law or oppressive regulations triggers the client’s authority issues. When they are able to revisit the past and separate the impressions embedded in their being from that experience from what is happening in the present, cooler heads tend to prevail.
When a client is in a Heart-Centered Hypnotherapy™ session, they are first placed into a relaxed state of mind that facilitates communication between the conscious mind and subconscious and unconscious material. They are then regressed to a time when the same or similar feelings they have in the moment came up for them. As they recount the earlier experience, they’re invited to express the emotions they had at the time. They are also urged to make distinctions between what they told themselves now and what is really the truth.
This process is extremely healing, because it helps the client let go of the way they saw themselves in the past. Until healing of this nature can take place, the younger “parts” of our clients act out as soon as they are provoked by an event or person that caused them trauma in the past.
Once this process is complete, the client will be more able to assess and regulate their emotions, learning to respond rather than react when they are triggered. They are also brought into touch with the parts of them that need attention and love, as well as encouragement to act upon their own feelings rather than simply going along to find a way to belong.
Hypnotherapy is a powerful tool that can help you help your patients. As the winds of change whistle through our society, and people lose their grip on the way things always have been, they need extra help bringing their lives back into focus. A very effective way to do this is by working to heal the parts of them that have held onto emotions such as anger, fear, and sadness. Once these emotions are expressed and released, the corrective experience allows them to operate in the world as a healthy adult rather than a troubled child. This can make your life as a therapist so much easier, as you see your patients heal quickly and deeply.
