|Where do We Go from Here?|
On October 23, 2012, +Chris Witherspoon posted the following report on the Hypnothoughts discussion forum:
Just had to share this. I had an early morning call from a client wanting to cancel. He went on to say that he had an out break of s
hingles. He said he was in a great deal of pain. I told him no need to cancel, hypnosis is very effective for pain issues. He kept the appointment and when he came in the shingle blisters were huge, white and shiny. I did a session using suggestions of a healing cooling blue white light that cooled his hand he then transferred the cooling healing sensation to the area of discomfort. We practice this a few time then asked him to rate the discomfort before the session and now. He told me it was off the scale before and now down to a two. I had him preform the healing ritual again until the discomfort completely disappeared. I then went on to suggest that the blisters would immediately begin to shrink, all the fluid would begin to be absorbed by his body. I suggested that healing would be excellerated. I then brought him back to the here and now, turned on the light and looked at the blisters. I have worked with pain before but never with and active case of shingles. Before the session he had a cluster of about ten blisters on his upper arm. These blisters were huge, white and shiny before the session after the session there er only two or three that were still rather large but even they were smaller and no longer shiny. He reported that the he was no longer experiencing the discomfort. This is the first time I actually witnessed the power of someone's mind to make physical changes. This was really exciting. This is why I love hypnosis.
I saw the guy last week and was honestly amazed by what happened during the session. He came in this week for a session on a no going issue. I had tried to contact him during the past week to no avail. I was anxious to get a report on how he was doing. When he sat down he pushed his shirt sleeve up a bit and there was a small scab and five red spots that were not a scab but not normal skin tone. He told me that the spots on his hand and wrist were the worse and they were now just scabs. We he was at the
doctor'sfor treatment before he saw me and they told him that it may take 4-8 weeks for this to clear up. Don't expect it to go away quickly. He was extremely pleased with the outcome of our session and reported that the absence of pain lasted for about a day then he used the technique I taught him and he said he was able to keep it within a tolerable level. I have a very happy client, no pain and almost completely healed.
Don this may be true. I don't know. This client does have a very good imagination, he follows directions easily and goes naturally into a deep trance. He told me how as a teen he would visualize places he rather be when he was sitting in classes. I just knew I had to give it a try. I once experienced a spontaneous healing of a cut on my finger. This was years before I was even exposed to hypnosis. I was at a church service where there was a healing service going on. Some people went forward to have people lay hands on them, I just looked at the cut on my finger and wondered if it could be healed. I then got involved with what was going on in the church and the next time I looked at the finger it was completely healed over. I knew intellectually that a person in trance could accelerate their healing, so I gave it a try.
What I didn't know is that he was told that it would take several weeks to achieve healing. I am just tickled it was accepted as a plausible suggestion. . . .I was just the guide, all that happened was because the client had a good imagination and was able to believe and follow my instructions.I am not talking about so-called "positive thinking" creating any metaphysical changes, as has been advocated by books such as The Secret, which has soundly been debunked. But the possible evolutionary explanation for particularly dramatic results with suggestion and/or hypnosis, such as curing warts, for example, may have been obscured, IMHO, because many people want to believe that anyone is capable of such feats. If special talent exists in art, music, and in the realms of intellectual and social intelligence, why shouldn't there also be hypnotic virtuosos?
In order to be fully accepted as part of scientific knowledge, an unusual result must be replicable under the same conditions which initially produced it. But what If there should happen to dwell among us a small number people, more highly evolved than the rest, who are capable of prodigious feats of mind, which can be developed and strengthened still further by hypnosis and hyperempiria? Whenever one of these cases is brought to light, if we cannot repeat it ourselves and get the same result, the natural tendency for those of us who are trained in the scientific method is simply to dismiss it, attributing the initial report to faulty observation, poor controls, or experimenter bias. But, what if . . . .?
The world-renowned physicist Steven Hawking, for example, points out in the following video that we at least several million light years away from other forms of life in the Universe. Since no electromagnetic transmissions which indicate the presence of life have so far been detected. What if thought is not limited by the speed of light, and is therefore independent of the usual constraints of time and space? Is it possible that experientially gifted individuals might be able to detect such communications when they have been made sufficiently sensitive and receptive through the use of hyperempiria, or suggestion-enhanced experience, in deep hypnosis? Research to investigate these possibilities is currently underway.
