Hypnosis: Myths vs. Truth

We’ve all heard the joke about the woman who was hypnotized into thinking she was a chicken and whose husband refused to have her brought out of it. Finally, after a time, the man had the poor woman “de-hypnotized.” When later asked why he waited so long the man replied, “Because we needed the eggs.” (I do confess that the joke is so old that I may be taking some license in recalling exactly how it goes.) The point is it is easy and even natural to make light of things we don’t understand and around which so much misinformation lies. At Harmony Soul Regression we want our clients to know as much as they can about this phenomenon that may help them find clarity in their lives. We want our clients to know that hypnosis is neither scary nor magical. It is a tried and tested method of delving into the subconscious with the goal of ultimately bettering the lives of patients. Moreover, it has been used for decades to solve crimes, to counsel patients, to manage pain management, etc. Therefore, so that you can better understand this phenomenon, we would like to give you the facts about and dispel some of the myths surrounding hypnosis.

Myth #1: The Person the hypnotist controls has no independent will.

Fact: While the hypnotist does have some control over the subject, it is not possible to have that person do something this is obviously dangerous and wrong.

Myth #2: Only the mentally weak can be hypnotized.

Fact: This is certainly not true. People vary in how susceptible they are to hypnosis. In fact, it has been estimated that around 30% of the people are resistant to hypnosis.

Myth #3: A Hypnotherapist or past life regression therapist can cure someone in one session:

Fact: Stage hypnotist who entertain at parties, etc., have promulgated this myth. Experts can tell you that hypnotherapy can take several sessions before great progress is made.

Myth #4: There is no scientific proof that hypnosis works or that it is therapeutic:

Fact: Scientific studies have shown that hypnosis is an effective form of therapy for many conditions.

Myth #5: You can get “stuck” in hypnosis:

Fact: This gets back to our chicken lady joke. Hypnotherapists always end the session at some point. Even if they did not, the client would eventually either become fully alert or would fall asleep.

In conclusion, hypnosis is an often misunderstood phenomenon that has been around for many decades and has helped many people from all walks of life resolve problems in their current and even past lives. At Harmony Soul Regression we feel that information empowers our patients to be able to help in their own therapy.

Famous People who Believed in Reincarnation and Past Lives

“I don’t know about other people, but for myself there has never been any question. I don’t just think it; I know there are places I’ve been before, and not in this life.” George S. Patton

The fact that the human spirit is on a constant evolutionary trajectory is a belief that is held not just by adherents of Hinduism, it is a belief that has been and is currently being held by people who are outside that or any other faith. In fact, many famous people have felt themselves certain beyond any doubt that they lived a past life. This is what makes past life healing such a useful tool for exploring the psyche of patients. Believing in a particular faith or in reincarnation is not a necessity. But those who do seek a regression therapist should try to keep an open mind, as have many others before them, about the possibility that life is indeed cyclical and that they may be a link in a chain that began many centuries ago. Here are some famous historical figures who believed in past lives.

George S. Patton: America’s no-nonsense, quintessential military leader was a firm believer in past lives. In fact, historians say that the topic of reincarnation was a favorite topic of the general, who himself, was a devote Episcopalian. In one instance, Patton recalled himself dying in battle as a Viking and being escorted to Valhalla. Late in life he was quoted as saying “So as through a glass and darkly, the age long strife I see, where I fought in many guises, many names, but always me.

Napoleon Bonaparte: This legendary French emperor believed that he lived many times and often discussed this fact with his generals. Moreover, some people believe that Napoleon was the actual reincarnation of Charlemagne (also known as Charles the Great or Charles I).

Salvador Dali: Surrealist painter and creator of such iconic pieces as The Persistence of Memory claimed that he had memories that went back to the 16th century. Moreover, he believed himself to have been a monk at that time that had been beaten and imprisoned.

Benjamin Franklin: A Founding Father of the nation with too many titles to list here, believed that the soul was not extinguished by physical death. He once wrote, “When I see nothing annihilated (in the works of God) and not a drop of water wasted, I cannot suspect the annihilation of souls…”

Goethe: The great German writer and statesman once wrote, “I am certain I have been here as I am now a thousand times before, and I hope to return a thousand times.”

Yes, many people – living and dead, famous and obscure – have reached the inescapable conclusion that past lives can and do reside in all of us. Past life regression therapy helps people with current day problems trace these conflicts back to lives to which they may not have been aware.right-brain-left-brain-fnl-598x441

Between Lives Soul Regression

The fact that the subject of between lives soul regression has become increasingly popular as a therapeutic device is sort of a mixed blessing.  On one hand more and more lay people are learning about how this phenomenon can help them with their spiritual and emotional growth and well being.  On the other hand, people who are untrained in this phenomenon can sometimes distort this very complicated subject.  The movies in particular sometimes take a subject that is difficult and over simplifies it for the sake of dramatic license.  Here are some movies that address the topic of between lives soul regression and reincarnation with varying degrees of success.  Some are very thoughtfully handled while others are more entertainment than fact.

  • On A Clear Day You Can See Forever (1970): M8DONAC EC004Starring Barbara Streisand, this movie is about a woman who uses hypnosis to stop her smoking but instead discovers that she is the re-incarnation of a 19th-century seductress named Lady Melinda Winifred.
  • Patton (1970): It is a well known fact that General George S. Patton believed himself to have been reincarnated from several military leaders of the past.  Patton is known to have once said, “Through a glass and darkly, the age old strife I see where I fought in many guises, many names but always me.”

  • Chances Are (1989): This comedy starring Cybill Sheperd, Robert Downey Jr. and Mary Stuart Masterson, deals with a man who is the reincarnation of one of the character’s father.  Naturally, this character – played by Masterson – falls in non-platonic love with him.
  • Heart and Souls (1993): Starring Charles Grodin, Alfre Woodard, Kyra Sedgwick and Tom Sizemore the movie involves four people who die and later become the ghost/guardians of a child born at the moment of their deaths.
    Patton 1
  • Yesterday’s Children (2000): This movie starring Jane Seymour is an adaptation of a book by Jenny Cockell entitled “Across Time and Death: A Mother’s Search for Her Past Life Children.”  This movie shows how emotional issues can transcend time if not properly acknowledged and eventually resolved.
  • Cloud Atlas (2012): This movie starring Tom Hanks and Halle Berry is a lesson about deep love and kindred souls.

Yes, Hollywood will continue to try to handle the topic of past lives soul regression and re-incarnation as interest in the subject grows.  As with any phenomenon that reaches popular culture some of these treatments will be very well done and respectful towards their topic while others….

Soul Mates and Past Life Regression

“Soul mates,” “Twin Souls,” “Perfect Partners” – Have you ever met someone with whom you felt an immediate and inexplicable connection?  More than that, have you ever met someone you felt you’d met before yet all of your personal experiences told you that this it was not possible?  Sometimes past soul regression therapy reveals the existence of this phenomenon.  Far from being just a cheesy pickup line, the idea of soul mates is well documented by most regression therapists and can be found in the teachings of well-known psychic Edgar Cayce.  Hkarmic soul matese believed that people who are currently in our lives may have been with us in other lives.  Moreover, Cayce believed that sometimes the relationships we shared with those individuals can be dissimilar to the relationships we share with them now.

The concept of soul mates is right in keeping with the ideas of re-incarnation.  Reincarnation, explains the idea of soul mates as bonded souls who are drawn to re-unite as couples again and again.  Moreover, people who believe in reincarnation think that all of these bonds ultimately serve in the development of each of our souls.  Soul mates allow for a wide range of possibilities when two people encounter each other again in this life.  However, this closeness bond isn’t always restricted to romantic relationships.  Sometimes the relationships individuals shared in past lives are positive but this is not always the case.  There are case studies showing that some of the relationships that were forged in another life were abusive or negative.  In either case, it is best to seek clarity and guidance when one encounters these strong feelings of déjà vu.

There are three types of soul mate:  Twin Flames, Companion Soul Mates and Karmic Souls.  Twin Flames are mirrors of who we are.  According to Greek Mythology humans were originally comprised of two heads, four arms, etc.  Eventually, this union was broken and formed two individuals.  Companion Soul Mates are soul mates who, at some point, have made an agreement with us to help us learn lessons in this lifetime.  Again, this relationship need not display itself as romantic in nature.  Finally, Karmic Souls – as the name implies – are souls that come back together after several life times to work through specific issues.

At Harmony Soul Regression we often help clients gain greater clarity about their current relationships by helping them to understand their connection with souls from previous lives.  We can provide you with a regression therapist in Denver who can help add context to current relationships and help you to resolve feelings that may be confusing or even disquieting.

How Some World Religions View Reincarnation

In order to reap the maximum benefits of age regression, past life soul regression, between lives soul regression and spiritual coaching, one does not have to adhere to any particular set of religious beliefs.  In fact, one does not even have to believe in reincarnation which is the very cornerstone of these therapies.  However, anyone who visits us and experiences past life healing in Denver should consider how ancient and venerated the principle of reincarnation is.  They should realize that many of the major religions of the world believe in this as one of their guiding principles.  Here are a few of the world religions and their view towards this phenomenon that offers hope for those who believe that life ends when the body ceases to function.

Christianity: The tenets of this major religion holds fast to the idea of one life and that when you die there is no return in another form.  For orthodox Christians there is butHinduism one Day of Judgment, and only a heavenly resurrection of the body for the righteous.  There is no resurrection of to a corporal form in the conventional sense.  However, it should be noted that many Christians still believe in the concept of reincarnation.

Hinduism:  Adherents to this religion believe that that the Jiva is intrinsically pure and that layers of I-ness and My-ness goes through transmigrations in the circle of birth and death.  Death is the end of the physical body but not its essence – the Jiva.

Buddhism:  Although some experts in comparative religious debate this, BuddhismBuddhist believe that after death a person is either reborn into another body or enters nirvana (the state of bliss followed by the liberation from the cycle of life and death).  The Buddha once said, “Life is a journey.  Death is a return to earth.”

Jainism:  The practioners of this lesser known form of Buddhism which founded was by Vardhamana Jnatiputra or Nataputta Mahavira (599-527 BC), are strong believers in reincarnation.  They also believe that the Jiva survives after physical death and that life is cyclic.

Sikhism:  The Sikhs believe that a person’s soul is reborn many times as either a human or an animal.  According to their sacred text, the body is just clothing for the soul and is discarded at death.

Reincarnation and Past Life Regression Resources

A Brief History of Hypnotherapy

Through its use of guided relaxation and intense concentration in order to discover heightened states of awareness and delve into past lives, hypnosis is a field that has emerged from an obscure and often ridiculed practice to a field that has become deeply respected. Yet, it was not too long ago that only charlatans were believed to practice this misunderstood field. Although anmesmercient history is full of practices that resemble modern hypnosis – such as the practices of the Hindu Vedas – the modern day field of hypnosis has its more decisive developments in the 18th century. This occurred during the age of “Age of Reason.”

One of the pioneers in the field of hypnosis – and by extension hypnotherapy was a man named Franz Anton Mesmer. Mesmer was a German physician who also held an interest in astronomy. He sought to attach scientific study to this phenomenon which was then called “animal magnetism” (later called Mesmerism). (Mesmer believed that “animal magnetism” was transferred from healer to patient via a mysterious etheric fluid. This and his odd, ritualistic behavior would later discredit him.) His theories about how hypnotism worked were inaccurate but his contribution to the practice should not be overlooked.

 

In the 19th century James Braid – who many regard as the “Father of Hypnosis” – continued hypnosis on the path from ridicule to respectability by performing experiments and studies using the scientific method to convince the medical establish of hypnotherapy’s validity. (At the time people who sought to seriously study this phenomenon risked professional suicide.) For this reason, some regard him as the first “hypnotherapist.” Today there isn’t a regression therapist in Denver, or any place in the country for that matter, who does not owe a debt of gratitude to the works of Mesmer and Braid. Hypnosis plays a vital – and frankly indispensable role – in medicine and psychology today even though it still does have its detractors. It is a pathway that leads to the road of self-discovery and development in humans and is utilized in most fields of medicine. This pathway has guides in the person of regression therapists who can help patients seek clarity and understanding as they confront emotional and psychological challenges. Sometimes the origins of these issues span the length of time as well as place and circumstance.

At Harmony Soul Regression, past life healing in Denver is facilitated by guide Kristine Morton who is a Certified Regression Therapist and Licensed Massage Therapist.

The Many Benefits of Past Life Regression Therapy

One of the biggest philosophical questions that all of us ask is, “Who am I”.  For most the answer remains elusive because we can never truly understand who we are without first understanding where we came from. Knowing our past is the cornerstone to determining  who we are and to where we are going. past life healingOften as human beings we are faced with concerns, fears and anxieties that we don’t understand and are completely baffled when trying to determine their origins. It is then that we need guidance from those who can help us look deeper into ourselves. This is the role of the Regression Therapist. Regression Therapy – which can be useful in helping individuals understand and resolve a great many issues – can be a doorway to inner exploration and to past life healing. Its many benefits include:

Uncovering and addressing the cause of current issues: Often unresolved traumas from a past life resurface and become problems that effect our present lives. A regression therapist is someone who can help reveal, interpret and guide you on the path to uncovering and resolving these conflicts.

Heal the pain from past trauma: Whether we realize it or not actions that took place in a past life, can send shock waves into our present life effecting our current relationships and indeed, our general sense of well-being.  Regression therapists seek to take patients back to the place (and time) where that traumatic action was born – under safe conditions – so that its context can be properly understood.

Understand and resolve relationship problems: Often past life incidents can manifest themselves in current life problems that not only affect the patient but also affect the people around him or her. These behaviors can manifest themselves as anxiety, emotional eruptions and even depression.  Regression therapy adds context to these behaviors by exploring their origins in past lives. This can in turn help patients resolve issues in current life relationships.

Recognize old friends and soul mates: Past life regression therapy can help clients to find others in this current life that they may have had a connection to in a past life.

Other benefits of past life regression therapy can include rediscovering talents and abilities and to help overcome the fear of death in addition to gaining insight into difficult issues in current life.

One does not have to believe in re-incarnation or even an afterlife in order to benefit from regression therapy. Ultimately what clients derive from a past life regression session depends on how much they are willing to put into it and of course the experience and guidance of their regression therapist.

Left Brain, Right Brain and the Spiritual Connection

Here at Harmony Healing Center, we are firm believers in the mind, body and soul connection; but finding the right balance between these equally important puzzle pieces that make up our being is no easy task. Lucky for you, you don’t have to find that balance alone. Kristine Morton has been a certified Regression Therapist for over a decade and she is here to help. Whether you’re in need of past life healing, spiritual coaching, between lives soul regression therapy or all of the above, Kristine has you covered.

Achieving the perfect balance of mind, body and soul first requires a little background information on how the mind works. As you know your brain is divided into two hemispheres—the left and the right brain—and you might understand that each side plays a different role in your life, but you may not be familiar with how your brain’s distinct hemispheres affect your spirit. So let’s take a deeper look into the complexities of your left and right brain…

The left brain—which in our left-brain-focused society is the dominant side for most individuals—is the logical, ego-driven side. Your left brain is calculating and empirical and it focuses on rational problem solving. This side of your brain offers a protective mechanism that helps you survive childhood and learn to maneuver in this reality. The left brain is not inherently bad, but when it takes over and starts running the show the effects on your spirit can be quite devastating.

The right brain, on the other hand, thrives on intuition and creativity. This side of the brain is your compassionate power center and the doorway through which you can connect with greater consciousness. When you don’t nurture the right side of your brain you are essentially shutting down the heart-centered spirit guide within you.

The ultimate goal for anyone should be to find a balanced and centered space where you are aware of and utilizing each side of the brain equally. A stable balance between the left and right brain will unlock within you a spiritual intelligence that will help you navigate life with ease. Here at Harmony Healing Center we offer Spiritual Coaching that will help you reach and maintain this coveted left brain/right brain harmony. Whether you’re getting ready for your Past Life Soul Regression journey or you’re in need of assistance with greater understanding and integration of the information you received in your Regression Therapy session, Spiritual Coaching can help you immensely.

If you’re ready to start living a balanced, happy and healthy life, give Harmony Healing Center a call today. Schedule your free 30 minute consultation with Kristine and get ready to begin your journey down the path to well-being and peace of mind.

You Can Heal Your Past Life; If You Believe You Had One.

The idea of past life healing probably doesn’t make much sense to someone who doesn’t believe in reincarnation in the first place. Reincarnation isn’t a new concept; this ancient belief can be traced back thousands of years. It is deeply rooted in the history of Eastern traditions and more recently is becoming embraced in Western culture as well. By the time you finish reading this blog I hope that even if you’re a non-believer you will at least be open to the prospect that reincarnation could actually be possible.

First, let’s talk about what reincarnation is exactly: Reincarnation is both a religious and philosophical concept.  The basic idea of reincarnation is that one’s soul (or spirit) is an independent entity; when the physical body dies, the soul survives and is reborn in a new physical form.

While the basic conce"Harmony Healing Center"pt remains the same across all schools of thought, there is some variation on specifics. In Hinduism, for example, the concept of Karma—the idea that the conditions into which one is reborn are determined by one’s conduct in previous lives—is an essential aspect of reincarnation. The Inuit and many other Native American tribes, on the other hand, don’t necessarily expect every soul to be reborn, but rather those who have suffered premature deaths.

Although the belief in reincarnation is less prevalent in Western cultures and religions than it is in Eastern ones, it is certainly not a non-existent belief; and the last few decades have seen a spike in Western believers. There are even groups within Judaism and Christianity that find support for reincarnation within their Holy texts. And then there are those of us who look at reincarnation in a more philosophical way.

Whichever specifics you believe in, it is hard to deny the existence of reincarnation all together in today’s world. Between the ancient writings and the modern case studies—such as the many documented cases of children vividly recalling past life experiences—there is evidence of reincarnation around every corner. It’s no wonder some researchers speculate that we are now living in a time where there are more people alive who believe in reincarnation than those who do not. But for those holdouts out there, I would advise looking around you for signs as well as inside themselves for answers.

Most believe that a soul does not start over fresh in the next life. There are lessons to be learned so when one’s physical body dies their soul carries with it the unfulfilled promises, unexpressed emotions, beliefs, attitudes, ailments, unresolved issues, phobias and/or attachments from previous lives into the next life—this is where Past Life Regression Therapy can be most helpful.

With over 40 years in the healing arts including more than 10 years in Regression Therapy, Kristine Morton of the Harmony Healing Center is one of the the most experienced Regression Therapist Denver has to offer. Give her a call at 303-960-6483 or email her at kristine@harmonysoulregression.com to get started on your healing process today.
