As mentioned in my last episode, I'm taking you on a journey to explore Depth Hypnosis and Applied Shamanic Counseling. I previously provided an overview of these healing modalities. Today is a deeper dive into Depth Hypnosis.
For those that missed last week's episode - no problem! Each episode in this series not only stands on its own - it also builds upon each other. So I've got you covered. Future episodes along this journey include a deeper dive into Applied Shamanic Counseling, FAQs, and ways to tell if this healing is for you.
So let's dive into Depth Hypnosis. I'm often asked, "Depth, what?" when introducing this approach. Depth Hypnosis is a counseling model that blends Shamanism, Buddhism, Energy Medicine, Hypnotherapy, and Transpersonal Psychology. It bends to and compliments your practices, beliefs, or spiritual background. You do not need experience or knowledge in these areas to benefit from Depth Hypnosis. This healing practice helps you rapidly work through issues to access profound learnings with lasting results.
Depth Hypnosis is your antidote to suffering symptoms like depression, anxiety, overwhelm, self-doubt, absent parenting, chronic fatigue, or attention deficit disorder. It works on your subconscious, subliminal level. Depth Hypnosis allows you to see where these patterns appear, unravel them and heal past trauma.
With this approach, you have the reins and lead the way to discover the changes you're seeking:
We do this through dream interpretations, hypnosis, inner child work, and regression. That way, you avoid recurrences of the problem.
In this altered state, you receive a controlled download on a specific issue or feeling that we go in on. This allows you to process, absorb and integrate the insights in a manageable way. Comparably, a download from a plant medicine ceremony - without the proper preparation and integration - can be overwhelming, overpowering, and trigger BIG emotions that flood you. However, this is a different topic for another episode.
Depth Hypnosis avoids talking about the trauma and gets to the point of the healing much quicker. As a result, a dedicated client operating in their authority can expect to see a shift within 3-5 sessions. This is particularly attractive - and sometimes necessary - if you're suffering from severe trauma.
Here's the thing. Transformation begins when you realize the friction you're experiencing. It's so easy to ignore or overlook the internal conflict. And once you acknowledge it, you create awareness. And with awareness, you initiate an energetic change.
The result of Depth Hypnosis is intuitively life-changing. You neutralize the friction in your life by harmonizing your inner world with your outer world. That way, you move forward more whole and alive. Here's how that looks...
Who doesn't want this? Imagine living in your sovereignty, in higher consciousness, moving along your path in life? This is possible. This is your righteousness.
Here's an essential high point, Depth Hypnosis encourages radical self-responsibility. To eventually become your own shaman requires you to engage in the process of self-empowerment through self-knowledge. You learn to navigate your psyche through hypnosis, insight inquiry, regression, dream work, meditation, or the shamanic journey. While I help you interpret your subconscious material, you gain a deeper understanding of the obstacles creating disharmony in your life. This practice allows you to come back into your wholeness without living from your wounding.
Depth Hypnosis is a process that continually opens doors to the deeper areas of yourSelf. And as you continue the work, you continue to unfold more ways to evolve your being as you move forward along your healing journey.
I'll share a personal experience to help further ground this for you.
Several years ago, I felt a divide between my business consulting practice and my client practice. I lived in two worlds with the masculine energy of Corporate America and the feminine energy of spiritual healings. So in a Depth Hypnosis session, I asked to see what it looks like to bring my femininity into a masculine setting. I also asked for the tools needed to be vulnerable in that setting.
In the past life regression, I lay on the dirt ground in a bare, desolate desert area. A few people stood behind me and watched me. I knew they were the ones that harmed me. I was motionless and bare. The beings picked me up from my arms and legs and carried me to a pit in the ground. I was overwhelmed with emotions and sadness. My body was limp - unsure if I was dead or alive. They put me in the ground and began to through dirt on me. At the moment of my death, I was overwhelmed with regret. Even though I know what I did was righteous, I regretted what I did. The physical sensation I experienced was a heaviness in my chest and belly.
The Depth Hypnosis practitioner brought me to my current life on that feeling of heaviness in my chest and belly where I experienced regret. I was brought to when I was an infant, newborn, naked, and examined by doctors. I was cold and had a heavy feeling in my belly and chest. My Mom and Dad were in another room.
The practitioner invited my adult self to reunite with the infant self, bringing love and acceptance, which shifted the feeling of regret into gratitude and love. As a result, I experienced expansive love and peace and felt blissfully whole.
The practitioner brought me back into the room through guided meditation. I processed this experience. Initially, I thought I had to find my divine feminine power as an adult before this healing could occur. But then realized I always had this power, and it was simply reuniting with my energy.
With the practitioner's guidance, she helped further interpret the subliminal insights. She invited me to examine my relationship to duality and explore what I bring from one energetic setting (i.e., feminine) to another (masculine). And vice versa. We also looked at what happens when I manifest how I want to *feel* regardless of the setting. Together, I saw how to show up whole and navigate masculine and feminine environments with grace and ease. I experience how freeing it is when I'm vulnerable and show up in my power as a whole being, speaking my truth.
Today, I see the parallels in how I show up in my business consulting practice *and* my healing client practice.
Let me break this session down into bread crumbs.
Depth Hypnosis is a practical, spiritually-oriented counseling model. It uncovers, unwinds, and heals your symptoms and challenges. The process understands all symptoms are teachers. And the symptom leads you to the source of an imbalance or limiting belief so that you can address an issue on all levels – physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually.
You do not have to live in suffering nor feel alone or lost. I lead you into a peaceful state to access your deepest knowing and heal beyond your imagination. That way, you can step into your power and find your true nature. If this speaks to you, DM me on Instagram @SparkPath or visit me on sparkpathhealing.com and let's have a conversation.
You're not alone. I'm here for you.
Let's return to the surface and out of the depths of Depth Hypnosis. Here are the main takeaways from today's episode.
And, I'll leave you with that…
