Our mind acts as an intricate filter to the continuity of time. We all live in the present and act in the present.However, our mind tends to wander, reminiscing about the past or contemplating over the future. The borders between memory and imagination tend to grow thinner with the passage of time. And even if a person can remember an exact memory, chances are they can’t remember its effects on the person or personality, we are ultimately a manifestation of our experiences after all.
A significant amount of information stored within our minds gets buried or regressed overtime, this occurs due to our defense mechanism. Furthermore, our emotions also possess a significant role on our memory and how a particular event is treated. Repression of memories is a very normal occurrence; however,even repressed memories have lasting effects on an individual. Hence, hypnosis serves as a catalyst to access these repressed or buried memories. Hypnotic regression is a process which enables access into the unconscious mind thereby recalling materiel previously unavailable.
Hypnosis helps temporarily deactivate the innumerable amounts of barriers that exist in our mind, enabling us to access our deep memory in its unaltered state. And the reason for this is that, hypnotic regression helps the subconscious mind travel back through the passage of time. Regression can be used to retrieve memories and events from literally any point in our lifetime. Hypnotists use the technique to objectively allow the client to observe certain events and understand its significance on an individual’s perspective.
The Healing Process
The mental defense mechanism acts out against a variety of experiences that could possibly be traumatic, unpleasant, or simply difficult to cope with. The healing process requires an objective observation of such an event or experience and its effects, whether they are the cause of the turmoil or personal obstacle, etc., and reveal the complex linkage between these experiences and feelings. These events mustn’t necessarily be traumatic or horrific in nature but can simply create an internal conflict and prevent self growth.
Once the source of the problem is discovered, the hypnotherapist uses the new found information and helps the client resolve these issues. Enabling the person to understand the new insights into their own subconscious and tackling them constructively.
The process of healing the unconscious mind is the elimination of unnecessary and unwanted problems in the mind, which are ultimately disabling a person from experiencing the many joys a lifetime has to offer. Even the smallest of instances have known to adversely affect the overall positive outlook on life and hamper the overall growth of an individual.
Hypnotic Regression is an incredibly powerful tool at a skilled and certified hypnotist’s disposal. However, it should only be exercised through a professional and highly skilled hypnosis practitioner
