The Benefits of Hypnosis Age Regression

Margit Cathrine Moller

In one of my most favorite Christmas stories A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, Scrooge was visited by the Ghost of Christmas Past. The ghost helped Scrooge remember his difficult childhood, his lonely Christmases as a child and his bitter memories which made him hate Christmas as an adult. This visit made him realize his needs and contributed to his own transformation.

We may not be visited by ghosts but we do have access to childhood memories that can help enlighten us and transform us. This is a process called age regression using hypnosis.

Hypnosis age regression is a method used by hypnotherapists that allows us to revisit times in the past that were in some way traumatizing to us emotionally. Often these memories have been suppressed and so our conscious mind is unable to recollect them. Through the use of hypnosis we can gain access to our unconscious (or subconscious) mind, the subconscious will have a full recollection of all the events in our life, so by asking the subconscious a series of questions pertinent to our condition we can begin to identify any long forgotten events of the past. This then allows the patient, in tandem with the hypnotherapist, to begin eliminating the feelings of negativity or helplessness they experience as an adult.

Once these events of childhood have been identified then they can be reframed and current behavior can be changed. This means that any negative perceptions the unconscious mind holds about the childhood event can be eliminated and any charge they have can be nullified. At the same time what actually triggers these feelings as adults can be identified and eradicated. It may be certain keywords or actions (such as being patted on the shoulder) that occurred during the childhood event are what we subconsciously associate with the trauma as adults. When this happens we can then, for no conscious reason, begin to experience the feelings we had back then. In identifying and eliminating these particular triggers we can also begin to eliminate the negative feelings they give us as adults.

So as we can see, Hypnosis age regression is a great method for helping us to overcome childhood feelings of helplessness and negativity. It is a therapy that can help us to eliminate long ago learned behavior that may be holding us back in achieving our goals and in reaching our full potential. Many others have already discovered the benefits of Hypnosis age regression, and once they have eliminated there past traumas with the help of their unconscious minds, are able to move forward without unnecessary negative feelings holding them back. If you find that you too are being held back by puzzling feelings of negativity or helplessness then maybe Hypnosis age regression could get you moving in the direction you want to go.
