– A Comprehensive List –
As a Quantum Healing Practitioner, I find that I am often having conversations with clients about the many myths with hypnosis in Quantum Healing sessions. There’s a lot of great resources and articles that one can read but I wanted to create a list, in no particular order, that brings them all together in one comprehensive list that I could add to my website, , for my clients and so this is what I have done here. As such, and because there are always new ways of looking at hypnosis, trance work or Quantum Healing, it will remain ever evolving … just like us!
I’ll know if I’m hypnotized and truly speaking with my Higher Self if I receive the healing I asked for and get all of my questions answered.
FALSE: Expect that sometimes, the Higher Self may decide that for your own good, they cannot answer certain questions or perform healings. Some of these reasons include:
Hypnotized clients do not reveal deep secrets against their will.
TRUE: There’s a myth that hypnosis can be used to manipulate clients to reveal facts about themselves that they ordinarily wouldn’t — that is false.
Only one session is needed to get the information and healing desired.
FALSE: While sometimes this is indeed true, the depth and extent of your goals will have a direct impact on the number of sessions needed.
Hypnosis can retrieve repressed memories.
TRUE: There are times when hypnosis can assist in retrieving repressed memories but there are no guarantees. Even when it does work, there is no guarantee that the memories will be accurate to any degree. False memories are a very real thing! Further, there are reasons why using hypnosis to retrieve repressed memories is simply not recommended.
When I have my session, I can go to any specific life or event that I choose.
FALSE: Spirit gave Dolores Cannon the answer to this as being false. She was told, “there is the necessity for limiting one’s experiences to only those areas which bring understanding and enlightenment. And so it would be wise to disregard those lifetimes which would bring disharmony, for that is not the intended purpose”.
You can’t lie when your hypnotized.
FALSE: Hypnosis is not a drug like truth serum and in most cases, you will be fully conscious and aware during your session. Because of this, you can absolutely lie in a session … but then again, why would you? This would seem to be an awful waste of your time and money.
If I’m hypnotized, my conscious mind will not get in the way.
FALSE: Know that hypnosis is not a drug and you in the majority of cases, your conscious mind will come in and out in waves. This is where allowance, trust and surrender are important. Further:
I’m concerned that the Practitioner will make me do silly things or try to implant unwanted messages into my subconscious.
FALSE: Know that nothing can happen to you that you would not want in your fully conscious state. You will not be sleeping so free will remains in full force. Your Higher Self too would not permit anything that would go against your well-being and highest good. Your subconscious will reject anything that is not in alignment with your truth or beliefs.
Hypnosis can be dangerous and can be difficult to snap out of it.
FALSE: When in a hypnotic trance, you have actually achieved a state that millions of people try to achieve every day in their meditations. You are in fact, in a state of hyper-awareness. It is true however that you will feel groggy, but this is more akin to waking from a nice nap.
I won’t be told anything that will upset me in a hypnotic session.
FALSE: Whether you receive ‘good’ or ‘bad’ information, it is a matter of the definitions you assign to these words. Depending on your expectations and definitions, you may very well get information that you find upsetting. For example, you might find it upsetting to hear that you agreed to certain things as part of your incarnation that you now find disheartening. You may also receive information that pushes an emotional button for you; new information perhaps that causes you to reconsider a belief you currently have.
I was fully conscious and aware throughout my session so I must not have been hypnotized.
FALSE: Hypnosis is not an unconscious state of sleep. In fact, most people report having a heightened sense of awareness, concentration and focus, and can even hear more acutely during a session. The cases where people awaken to no memories of the session are actually quite rare and far in between.
Self-Hypnosis is safer and more effective than going to a trained professional.
FALSE: Self-Hypnosis can be a wonderful experience but in other cases, can also be detrimental when not facilitated by a trained professional. Negative attitude or belief about oneself can unwittingly be reinforced regardless of suggestions given. This can cause more stress and problems in the long run.
The only way for me to measure the success of my session is by receiving everything I ask for.
FALSE: Expectations are derived from the conscious mind, or the egoistic mind. This is where we set explicit parameters upon everyone involved, including Spirit. Instead, consider that your definition of success may actually serve as an obstacle that will prevent you from not only being hypnotized but also an obstacle to your healing.
I can’t have a successful session because I cannot see images in my mind.
FALSE: Everyone has their own way of “seeing” images and for each one of us, these ways are constantly changing and evolving. When “seeing”, we use all of the senses and in doing so, we can perceive what it is that Spirit is showing us. This aspect of communication also requires patience and it may take some time for the knowingness to come full circle. Most importantly however, I suggest:
In effort to “go with the flow”, I shouldn’t get wrapped up in any preparatory information my Practitioner sends me.
FALSE: Once you decide to invest in yourself with a session, why stop investing in yourself there? The goal of any preparatory information is to help empower you with tools, resources, understandings and general knowledge to give you a sound foundation to work from. Whether its articles, videos or other tools, you are being given these things because based upon experience, your Practitioner feels that they are pertinent and helpful. These types of resources also serve to give you confidence and help you relax by answering most, if not all of the questions or concerns that have or will pop up. Lastly, they also assist in opening your mind to new or important concepts so through this awareness, your overall consciousness is expanded and able to receive new or expanded information.
Despite my trying, I’m worried that I do still have some level of expectation.
TRUE: We’re only human and can’t be harsh with the reality that we all have some level of expectation so it’s good to be honest about it.
I don’t trust that I can give voice to my Higher Self in a session because I’ll know it’s really just me talking.
FALSE: While it is true that you must move your mouth and give voice to your Higher Self, if you’re in a place of allowance and relaxation, your Higher Self is prompting whatever information that comes to you. Trusting yourself and Spirit really is important.
I’m not a good candidate for hypnosis because I have a weak bladder and will be woken by having to use the washroom.
FALSE: Trance states are constantly in motion; rising and falling from one state to another throughout the entire session. No different that using the washroom in the middle of the night, one can easily return afterwards and drift right back into a sleep state.
My Higher Self said it healed me of my ailment, but it’s been weeks and I’m still struggling. It must not have worked!
FALSE: Healings happen differently for everyone. Some happen on the spot, but others can take weeks or even months to fully manifest into something measurable. We are not the simple beings that some think; we are multidimensional and there are many variables to consider when trying to measure whether or not a healing occurred.
My hypnosis session didn’t work because all I ‘saw’ was black emptiness.
FALSE: I would ask, how did this make you feel? Did you find it relaxing and peaceful? Point is this, your Higher Self will always
