Hypnosis: Hypnosis is about Changes Part 3

Hi,

This is Part 3 of my article series of "Hypnosis is about Changes".

As mentioned in Part 1, hypnotherapist facilitating changes can be done at the Cause/Factors, Problem(s) or the Symptoms Levels. I talked about the Symptoms Level in Part 2. It is easiest at the Symptoms Level. We do it by giving Post-Hypnotic Suggestions. But the problem is it seldom really work!

In this Part 3, I am going to talk about the Sources Level.

Every problem has an ultimate cause, which can be physical, psychological or emotional. We cannot do much about the cause if it is physical and psychological. It is the job of medical doctors or clinical psychologists respectively. Being a hypnotherapist, we can work on emotional causes.

There can be a lot of causes for a problem. The best leverage is to work on the ultimate cause, or the original cause - the "Source" of the problem. So, this level is better called the "Source Level" to reduce mis-understandings.

The "Source" can be happened years ago, or just in last week. The "Source" can be some bad experiences in the past. When the "Source" is settled, the problem is then resolved automatically.

We can use all kinds of Regression Therapy, like Inner Regression (in Certified Hypnotherapist Level) or Age Regression (in Master Hypnotherapist Level). We assist the client to go back to the time of the "Source", re-view it and re-understand it. It is the new understandings that heal!

Regression Therapy can be a painful, but fruitful process. If you are not well-trained for it, keep out of it! One can hurt the client even more by mis-using these skills.

When clients get new understanding about the "Source", they changed the "old" beliefs related to the "Source" and then to the "Problem". Our old beliefs must be replaced with new beliefs before changes can be taken place. We cannot "not" believe/do something old, we must believe/do something new instead! So we always ask our clients for positive messages, new learnings or understandings upon completion of the regression therapy.

Skillful hypnotherapists will convert these positive messages, new learnings and understandings into Post-Hypnotic Suggestions.

Why clients can always get positive messages, new learnings and understandings after successful regression therapy? It is because there are some critical elements in any good regression therapies:

1. Clients reexperience the whole thing again. They release the repressed emotions so that they can "see" the experience clearer.

2. Clients have the chance to "disscoiate" from him/herself during the process, so that they can "see" the experience in a more objective perspective.

3. Clients can "see" what happened before, during and after the experience again. They have the time to "see" what they had missed when it happened in the past.

4. Clients can "go" into the minds of the related other people. This makes clients not only understand better the case, but the thinking of related people.

5. Therapists have a systematic process to request the clients for the positive messages, new learnings and understandings. This process assits clients for a better understanding.

Inner Communication is another tool for the "Source" Level. This enables the clients to finish the "unfinished" business with someone else in the past. This process works when the "Source" is an unfinished business. Of course, when you still angry with someone after years, this is an unfinished business.

I will discuss with you the "Factors Level" in Part 4 of this series later.

催眠是關於改變的 第三部分 – 起因 (Source)

這是我的 『催眠是關於改變的』系列,第三篇短文。

正如第一部分所提及,催眠治療師可以從起因/因素,問題或表徵層面上促進改變。我也在第二部分提及過,在表徵層面介入是比較容易,而運用的技術是後暗示。但這問題是很少機會能夠達到效果。

在第三部分,我會談談根源層面

每個 『問題』都有最根本的起因,它可以是關於物理,心理或是情感。如果起因是關於物理和心理上的問題,我們並不能介入,它是醫生或是臨床心理學家的工作;作為一個催眠治療師,我們可以研究情感上的起因。

『問題』可以有多個起因 (Causes),研究最根本或是最初的起因是最大的槓桿- 『問題』的根源。為了減少誤解,因此,這層面稱為『根源層面』。

『根源』(Sources),可以發生在很多年前,或只是幾個星期內;『根源』 (Sources),可以是過去的一些不好經歷。當『根源』已處理好,『問題』便會自動地被解決。

我們可以使用各種各樣的回溯治療,如『內在回溯』(註冊催眠治療師課程),『年齡回溯』(Master Hypnotherapist)。我們協助客戶回溯到『根源』的時期,再重新審視它,再重新理解,它就是治癒的新理解。回溯治療可以是相當辛苦的,但卻是卓有成效的過程,如果你不是訓練有素,最好敬而遠之!因為你可能誤用這個具有難度的技術,而傷害到客戶。

當客戶從『根源』中得到新的理解時,有關於『根源』和所導致的『問題』之『舊有信念』都能因此而改變。在改變發生前,我們需要用『新信念』來取代『舊信念』,我們不能『不』相信 / 『不』做一些原有的事情,我們必定是相信/做一些新的事來取代!因此,在回溯治療中,我們總會要求客戶一些正面訊息,新的體會和新的理解。

熟練的催眠治療師,會運用這些正面訊息,新體會和新理解作為催眠後暗示。

為甚麼成功的回溯治療後,客戶能夠從中得到正面訊息,新體會和新理解?
這是因為每個成功的回溯治療中,都有些關鍵性因素

1. 客戶再重新經歷整件事情:他們釋放了被壓抑的情緒,所以他們能清析地『審視』經歷。

2. 在過程中,客戶能夠『抽離』:因此,他們更能客觀,不偏不倚地『審視』這經歷。

3. 客戶能再經歷事情,來『審視』在事情發生之前,之間和之後的情景:他們可以『看到』過去所發生的事情,有甚麼是看漏了的。

4. 客戶能『進入』其他有關人等的思想(客戶心裡的內在次人格):這不僅令客戶更瞭解事件,同時又能瞭解相關人等的想法,(客戶之內在次人格思維,因而他能對自己獲取更充份的理解)

5. 治療師有一個有系統的過程,來要求客戶取得正面訊息,新體會和新理解:這個過程能協助客戶得到較大程度的理解。

當『根源』是一件未完成的事,運用內在溝通是為了解決『根源層面』的另一個工具,它能使客戶完成一些過去與某些人有關的『未完成』事件,(這也是客戶的內在次人格),當你在事過境遷以後,你仍在惱怒某人,這就可能是一件未完成事件。

我將會與你在這系列中的第四部分,談論『因素層面』。
