Can Hypnotherapy Reveal the Truth?
Understanding Hypnosis and Universal Experience
Can truth be known by mere human beings? Our religions offer us one perspective on truth, yet for many people these systems of thought fail to offer a satisfactory explanation of our origins and of who we really are. Science has helped greatly, yet many still feel that something is missing based upon the limitations of scientific inquiry. The question then could be, “What does it take for a human being to know truth and what does it take to convince us that we have indeed found something that is consistent, reliable and trustworthy, that has practical application in our lives, and in our relationships with others?” Join us, Monday, May 28th at 7:00pm EST for this free Webinar.
Generally, in the field of Clinical Hypnotherapy, we acknowledge that the subconscious mind does not know fact from fiction. Therefore, the mere state of hypnosis (a natural yet altered state marked by responsiveness with the subconscious mind), when it is used to ask questions of the deep inner mind, cannot be said to show us a reliable source of truth regarding understanding who we truly are, what the universe truly is and what our place is within the whole. We might find subjective truths, yet Truth with a capital T, may still allude us without deeper inner work.
Unlike simple hypnosis, hypnotherapy uses powerful transformational modalities to transform subconscious content in ways that benefit the person, the hypnotherapist and everyone else that these two encounter. The process transforms fear into love, anger into peace, and hurt into joy. Through many powerful techniques, whose bases are all rooted in forgiveness, we tap into an inner experience that tends to be universal. At the core of every human being, hypnotherapy shows us that there is peace, love and joy just waiting to be found. This inner experience is a truth that is available for all. When negative beliefs and painful emotions drop away, the truth of who we really are begins to shine through. This experience has proven to be trustworthy, reliable, dependable, and most importantly, it is consistently there to be experienced directly.
Discovering Interpersonal Hypnotherapy
A return to peace, love and joy is beautiful for the client and certainly for the hypnotherapist who facilitates such shifts, yet truth does not exist in isolation. Truth, for it to be true, must be true everywhere and for every person. If truth is not practical and transferable to our other relationships, then it cannot be said to be truly valuable in the deepest sense of the word. In the Interpersonal Hypnotherapy model, we honor that there is something sacred within each transformational relationship and that what the client and the hypnotherapist are tapping into is a universal source of healing, which does indeed lead to more peace, love and joy for relationships that exist way beyond the hypnotherapy office.
Is Truth attainable through Inner Peace?
If truth is what is, then we need to see clearly without our internal filters, which cloud our experience of what is. So many of these filters come about from negative childhood experiences that are stored in the subconscious mind as memories, beliefs and emotions. Interpersonal Hypnotherapy very effectively clears the blocks to the awareness of our own inner truth. This truth then is meant to be extended out to others in a way that gives our lives more purpose and meaning. With a quiet, peaceful mind, and a joyful and loving heart, we find a view of reality that not only is immensely satisfying, but one that seems to speak of an ancient truth which can be deeply experienced again and again. We have learned through consistency that there is one truth residing at the very core of our being, and any chance to express and to live this truth is always worth our kind acknowledgement.
