As a hypnotherapist that has helped and guided clients successfully through their trauma healing journeys, I’m quite surprised by how limited the information that clients have. Typically, I see clients after they’ve been to a psychiatrist, then many years of psychotherapy, psychological visits and finally, when they’re willing to give up, they try a hypnotherapist. Surprisingly they find that within several sessions their trauma is removed and they can now get on with their lives. The sessions are light, easy, tears of joy may erupt and they’re totally surprised how trauma healing can be so quick and painless. So, I decided to present a list of 5 things that my clients have shared with me that they wished their trauma therapists would have shared with them.
- We don’t know what cures trauma. Psychiatrists give plenty of medication for you to alleviate symptoms of sleeplessness, anxiety, obsessive compulsive behaviours and the list goes on. They don’t know which specific pill helps you. They look at your behaviour and try to alleviate it with another new drug, not understanding where the trauma is located or how to pull it out of a person? Psychologists think that the trauma could be in the body, or maybe it’s in the mind, or the memory, or the emotions, which in the end means that if you don’t know where it’s located, how do you remove it. Should you dance? Should you talk in groups? New therapies are developed with limited results. They never consider the spirit.
- You better be prepared for years of therapy. Typically the clients that I see who have been to psychologists, or psychiatrists have spent many years in therapy. I had a woman with over 30 years of therapy and a full year of EMDR (eye movement and desensitization and receptivity-a common psychological treatment modality) treatments, who after 3 hypnosis sessions found that her trauma was released and didn’t need me anymore. If you’re dealing with disease, be prepared for weekly visits, new medications, new modalities, and yet the same results.
- We don’t know where the trauma is located! Some therapists think it’s in the body, others think it’s in the mind, or memory, still others who believe in Vogel therapy believe it’s in the unconscious. The approach from the therapy community is similar to the game whack a mole, not knowing where it’s located and then trying to hit it with a mallet whenever it shows up. The common thread with all these therapies is that they focus on the body, and the mind, but totally forget about the spirit. The most amazing thing that I find is that the word psychology, stems from the work psycho and logos, which means to study or knowledge of the spirit, however, psychologists never consider the spirit useful for therapy.
- We will need you to relive your trauma in order to heal from it. When I first started working with trauma, I too believed that I needed to hear about it. However, I found that being an empath and listening to these stories affected me. I felt worn out, even slightly traumatized from listening to these experiences. I started to investigate the fact that trauma therapists were now needing healing. This continued for me until I started to expand my knowledge about trauma by investigating and learning about energy work and the ethereal. Could trauma be located in the spirit and if so, could we remove it without re-traumatization? I found that I had solved my search. Currently, most trauma therapies, and specifically EMDR continue going into the trauma event with the belief that you need to relive it, in order to heal from it. After discovering how to heal trauma in the spiritual realm, we no longer relive trauma. Honestly, who wants to relive their rape, sexual molestation or assault. There is no need to do this and I’ve found that you need to search for a therapist that will not force you to relive your trauma. My trauma sessions are easy, and light with no dissociation or retraumatization.
- You will be dissociating after your therapy, however, we don’t have time for you to process that. Typically, after an EMDR session many clients need time to process their session. It’s very common for EMDR clients to use alcohol or drugs to process their trauma sessions. They start to use these substances to heal from reliving their trauma. Although they may be told about dissociation, they don’t understand the levels of retraumatization that will affect them and go on this roller coaster journey of emotions. The psychologist only sees them for an hour, while their healing journey to normalcy after a session may take several days.
Healing trauma by healing the spirit is the safest, quickest way that I have found to help you if you’re struggling with therapies. Please reach out if you’d like to learn more. tmachula66@Gmail.com
