We all know that the world is in need of change. We can see the suffering all around us, and we can see that many people are working to find solutions to environmental challenges, gender and race inequality, poverty, homelessness and countless other forms of human and animal cruelty. You only need to look around to see that there must be another way.
That very same statement, “There must be another way,” is what inspired A Course in Miracles (ACIM) to come about. If you are serious about being the change that you want to see in the world, we invite you to read more about how learning hypnotherapy from A Course in Miracles perspective can give you true purpose, meaning and fulfillment in your life and know that you are truly making a difference.
Why A Course in Miracles in a Hypnotherapy Training?
ACIM, regardless of its origins, teaches us that shifts can occur in the mind (known as miracles) which can influence countless numbers of minds beyond ways that we can even conceive. The model is that minds are joined and that we are not alone in the effects of our thinking. If we change how we perceive the world, then we change the world itself. The Course teaches that projection makes perception.
First, we see the world we want to see inside of our own minds. Then we project that onto the world “out there” and subsequently that is what we perceive out there. This is just another way of saying that our thoughts are creating our reality. So, any modality that helps us to powerfully change our thoughts is worth exploring if we accept this one fundamental idea -which simply stated is “YOUR MIND IS VERY POWERFUL!”
Learning Hypnosis as Inspired by A Course in Miracles
Our Fundamentals of Hypnosis training never touches upon ACIM, and we really do not introduce our students to the ideas expressed in the Course for a few hundred hours. We believe that a solid hypnosis training should not be limited to any one philosophical, spiritual or religious system of thought.
However, we have learned over the many years of teaching that many of our students do deeply resonate with the teaching found in the Course. As a result, when training with us, we gently begin to introduce the following ideas as you learn hypnosis:
- We can shift from fear to Love
- We can shift from illusion to Truth
- We can forgive instead of attack
- We can feel empowered rather than disempowered
- We can realize on some level that we are all connected and that by changing our own minds we change the very world that we appear to live in.
Hypnotherapy courses, training and education can be as simple as one weekend or as elaborate as 500+ hours. We invite you to explore the wonders of hypnotherapy training and how A Course in Miracles thinking can enhance your work with clients and change the world in very profound ways.
