hypnotherapy

long form hypnotherapy

Long Form Hypnotherapy Sessions are only available in person. In English / of in het Nederlands.

There are 3 types of sessions:
Open sessions are lead by your Higher Awareness. We allow what arises in the moment to be experienced, processed and integrated. This may be an early experience, past life, or inter dimensional. Your inner wisdom knows and decides the focus of the session.
Alignment sessions are guided by a series of  questions based on a shamanic healing journey to transmute blocks, release patterns and grow your conscious field. (Questions guide through, in utero experience, soul level, akashic records, bardo, early life, lineage, dna past life, inter-dimensional, energetic and somatic grounding)
Clearing sessions are an energetic session to clear your auric field, activate the 15 chakras and ground. (You can choose to incorporate hand healing and 136.1 AUM hertz, 528 hertz and scalar waves to help strenghten a coherent energy field.)

Long Form Hypnotherapy also know as Quantum, Spiritual or Higher Self Hypnotherapy initially uses relaxation to alter your conscious awareness and connect with Source energy, your inner wisdom and wider consciousness. This allows inner processing (of old patterns and emotions), inner clarity, parts integration and energetic downloads to take place.

Sessions are 3 hrs  long. The hypnosis lasts 2-2.5 hours. 30 min before and after are for intake and integration. The length of the session increases the depth of the processing and the opportunity to cover many aspects. There are many ‘layers’ of the mind and the energy field. Often certain layers can only be accessed once some unconscious patterns or (emotional) blocks have been processed.

The deep states of hypnosis
Restore you physically through accessing your parasympathetic nervous system (ventral vagus nerve, heart coherence) allowing your body to rest, digest, regenerate and integrate.
-It helps balance you mentally and emotionally. Your body and mind process thoughts and emotions more efficiently. You have access to your subconscious mind and can observe and transform your deep mental patterns and beliefs.
-It effects you energetically. You become more aware of the subtler energetic level underlying thoughts, emotions and the energy flowing through your body-mind-spirit system.
-You also have access to your ‘astral body‘ or dream body and parts of your being/psyche that connect to your non-physical levels. For example: akashic records, past-life, inter-dimensional, soul imprint…
-It strengthens your connection to your divine Spirit, soul and a sense that there is a greater intelligence beyond ‘everyday normal human conscious awareness’.

Choosing to do a series of sessions gives you the opportunity to explore beyond the personal inner processing. You can experience different techniques and each session can build off the previous session based on your feedback. In this way your skill and understanding of self-healing in trance and of your personal inner dynamic grows profoundly.

Like a deep tissue massage, hypnotherapy helps to reset and realign your deeper psyche. It is important that you create positive space to allow the adjustments to settle in after the session.

-Drink a lot of water.
-Go over the anchor words. It will help you remember the session and help deepen your private meditation practice.
-As gentle and as often as possible, remember to ground in the changes, the new you.

-You may have strange dreams that are a continuation of the processing. This is normal.
-It may help to journal to continue the processing.
-Old patterns (thoughts/situations) might temporarily arise, give them space, see this as a purge or release. Maybe they won’t effect you but if they do remember you know how to be and what to do differently now.

A large part of hypnotherapy involves, regression work or shadow work. This involves:
1) going back to fragments of ourselves that are stuck in the pain of a past event (this life or previous),
2) processing the event (transmuting the negative energetic charge) and
3) integrating that part back into the wholeness of self.

There are many techniques and ways of doing this that range from an energetic gentle allowing to the specific targeting (EFT, EMDR, havening etc).
The most fractured parts of ourselves have one or more protective layers or barriers. The IFS (Internal Family Systems) modality calls these parts ‘exiles.’ The mind exiles them because they carry the pain that the mind wants to protect us from reliving.

To access and feel connected to our fullness of being, we integrate as much of ourselves as possible. This is what meditation, inner spiritual practice and healing in trance is all about. This is also what makes the healing path, a spiritual path and vice versa.

Unless there are strong protective barriers around your fractured parts, these fractured parts will naturally show themselves in a session. Fears, memories, insecurities might arise and that is all okay and part of the process. And actually (from my perspective) a good thing, a good opportunity for healing and integration. Trust that your ‘Wider Awareness’ reveals what you are capable of processing and integrating that part will positively effect your energy field.

In the rare occasion that the experiencing of the fractured part requires a more targeted approach, I will use more ‘hands on’ techniques such as EFT, EMDR and havening to help facilitate the processing. When there are signs of protective layers or barriers in the mind I believe that patience, awareness and acceptance of the barriers is more helpful that trying to push through them at first. 

If there has been a lot of intense inner-processing, we will always end the session with hands on energetic grounding and Sound using the AUM frequency 136.1 hertz.

Sessions are based on Dolores Cannon’s QHHT (Quantum Healing Hypnosis Techniques), Ines Simpson’s Simpson Protocol that combines shamanic journeying with hypnosis, and the Anahata Yoga Tradition energy bodies template. When needed other processing techniques can be combined depending on what comes up in the session. See CV

What does that mean?
-You will be consciously guided, step by step, into hypnosis or meditation in a way that you will be aware of each step. (You don’t need to loose your willpower or awareness in hypnosis!)
-You can communicate to me using your voice, or a yes and no finger.
– You will be guided to activate heart coherence. (Ventral vagus nerve)
– With your intention to connect with your inner or wider wisdom, you will experience that connection in a deep relaxed state.
– You will explore your challenges, blocks, deep patterns, reasons for doing the session in your subconscious mind. (Nothing is off limits: Inner child, early life, past life, soul fragmentation-retrieval-contract, akashic, astral, bardo, parts-work, entities, energetic implants  etc)
– Guided by your own Inner wisdom you will, process, resolve, dissolve these blocks and patterns, creating space for new patterns and inner growth.
– You will be given ‘anchor’ words, to use in your private meditation practice to access these deeper parts of your consciousness.

The hypnosis usually lasts 2 hours with 20 min before and after for questions and integration.

Hypnotherapy uses the state of hypnosis, to transform your subconscious mind; (your limiting beliefs, your unprocessed trauma etc.) It’s intention is to empower you, through showing you how to access and change your deeper mind.

A hypnotherapist guides you to enter hypnosis and navigate the process. You do not loose your willpower, you stay conscious. By choosing to follow the instructions, you enter hypnosis YOURSELF and are responsible for your own change.

There are situations in which ‘hypnosis techniques’ can be manipulative, ie. movies, media, advertisements etc. Those methods are NOT considered ‘hypnotherapy’. Those are mind control or mind manipulation techniques which are not always applied with your full consent. They do not empower you. To reverse the effects of mind manipulation, you can learn self-hypnosis, access your subconscious yourself and reclaim your power.

Since the beginning of mankind, trance (hypnosis) has been used to access Spirit.

Spiritual hypnotherapy is based on the understanding that simply the belief in a Wider Awareness or consciousness creates the experience of a Wider Awareness or consciousness. Connecting with this Wider Awareness is both powerful and self-empowering allowing incredible transformation to take place. It opens a world of positive possibilities for navigating and transforming your inner reality, which ultimately effects your outer reality.

A human is seen as more than a physical body capable of thought and emotion. We have a divine soul and the ability to access beautiful states of ‘Higher Mind’ and information/energy.

Your subconscious mind is not rational, logical or linear. It does not ‘think’.
It is intuitive, instinctive, it ‘senses’ and usually tells a very different story than your rational, linear thinking.

Your subconscious stores information and associations in a way that has been important to your survival.

The associations that were important to your survival when you were a child, a teenager, or when you were experiencing life challenges or trauma might no longer be necessary and may be limiting you. So it’s useful to change this for your personal growth. Facts and past experiences will not change. The emotional charge and associations surrounding the past experience will change.

 

The more willing you are to enter hypnosis, the more beneficial it will be becasue ultimately YOU are the one who will enter trance and allow the change.


Here is an overview of common situations hypnotherapy can help:

MENTAL FOCUS & RELAXATION

It’s important that you feel comfortable with your hypnosis guide. In the menu is a link to my bio & CV for more background information of my training. Feel free to request a phone call before booking a session.

In a 1 on 1 session with a hypnotherapist, everything in the session from the induction, exploration, transformation techniques and final integration is tailored to your rythm and your specific needs. This simply isn’t possible in a pre-recorded audio.

5 elements

Like many ancient philosophical traditions Anahata yogis observed primal elements. Earth, fire, air, water and akasha (aether) are the five used in the Anahata Five Element Philosophy. They inform a nonverbal language that connects to nature and the subtle energies of reality, setting the foundation to grow and ground psychic perception.

In yoga experience is knowledge, so philosophy is practiced. It is not just an intellectual activity.

The Five Element Purification Practice or Tattwa Shuddhi Saddhana is a system of holistic moving and detoxifying meditations for shifting and balancing physical, energetic, conscious and unconscious mental patterns.  It is an integral part of the Anahata tradition. The movements and philosophy are woven into the classes and daily life. Tattwa Shuddhi Saddhana is often taught as a system on its own as it is suitable for all levels and all shapes of human. See the calendar for upcoming workshops or classes.

Anahata tradition

In the ancient Himalayan foothills of northern India, a lineage of yogis lovingly developed a holistic self care practice inspired by life immersed in mountain-scapes and nature.

Rocky crevices where one misstep meant death, formed ergonomic asanas to improve stamina, agility and stability. High altitudes shaped breath work for optimizing oxygen retention and reinvigorating energy. Night skies illuminated by stars and campfires invoked dream exploration and methods for navigating states of consciousness in trance. Living self-sufficiently nurtured healing techniques that harness the body’s regenerative processes. But above all, the yogis observed that by tuning into their heart intelligence ALL of their life sustaining qualities improved. They became more connected with their environment as well as with themselves. They called their system of practice, Anahata Yoga. Anahata, named after the energetic heart.

Without books or libraries, knowledge was shared through an oral tradition of experiential learning and body memory. Emphasis was placed on inner awareness and meditation filled movements referred to as the dances of Shiva and Shakti. The dances of duality. 

Unlike most hatha yoga traditions popular in the west, Anahata yoga evolved through a lineage outside of the higher priestly castes. Maintaining a tradition devoted to our unique Human Path and journey of individuation.

Your subconscious

You have a deeper mind: your subconscious. It is like a hard-drive that stores and connects all your experiences, associations, projections, emotional triggers and unquestioned beliefs. This information influences your behavior, how you think and what you feel. True inner change takes place at this deep and fundamental level of the psyche. Accessing it consciously requires openness to self-inquiry, body connection and a shift in awareness through practices such as meditation, trance, or self hypnosis.

The inner-processing and hypnotherapy private sessions facilitate inner transformation and growth through accessing the subconscious mind.

Anahata practices based in yoga psychology
offer a holistic system for processing and releasing subconscious patterns through meditation and movement. Meditation is more than mindfulness, it is a creative process of releasing deep mental imprints and consciously growing new perception.

the sky, as it is

2000 years ago the constellations in the sky matched the seasons. The Sun rose in Aries (the first sign of the zodiac) during the first day of spring. But since then, the stars have changed position due to something known as the ‘precession of the equinoxes’. Today when you look at the sky on the first day of spring, the Sun rises in a different zodiac sign : Pisces.

Most western astrology uses ‘tropical astrology’ which was developed 2000 years ago and is based on the seasons and sun (spring starting with Aries) and NOT what is really happening in the stars and sky now (spring starting in Pisces). There is now a growing difference of one to two zodiac signs between tropical western astrology and the real, visible sky.

Sidereal astrology observes and uses the visible sky and the location of the planets in the stars (zodiac) as they really are.  This means Sidereal Astrology can also include the energetic influences of stars such as Sirius, the Pleiades and the 13th zodiac, Ophiacus in astrological readings. Since the ancient times, these star energies have guided our connection to cosmic consciousness and awakening.

Sidereal means ‘determined by the stars’ or ‘star time’
.

~ For a consultation, your birth chart is calculated using the 13 zodiacs (including the Ophiucus star sign), the true variation in sizes of the zodiac constellations (visible sky) and the placidus house system (12 equal houses which represent earth time).
