From the earliest stages of my foray into shamanism, my intention was to heal and the first message or insight I received in response to my intention was “everything you need is inside of you”. It’s not an original notion but I don’t think I took this idea as seriously as I began to once I embarked on the shamanic path of healing. It was an essential premise and theme for my inner work and personal growth and it helped me to put my focus where it needed to be – within. That was over 5 years ago and it has served me well. I have experienced many plant medicines, shamanic healings/retreats and used many tools along the way but all of them, confirmed the fact that changing from within was indeed powerful and always helped to change my life experience for the better.
I then began to search for the best tool to offer others to do this same work. I searched for something that resonated with me and that honoured this most essential theme of focusing within to bring about changes in one’s life. I was very surprised to discover that hypnosis answered this description and served as the ultimate tool for shamanic healing. In the past, I never saw hypnosis as being empowering in any way. Like many, I saw it as a disempowering practice that people used to control others but this was an illusion and misconception. In fact, I had many such misconceptions about spirituality and even shamanism probably due to how it was represented in the media and in other ways that I had been exposed to throughout my life. What a revelation it was to discover this misconception and to know how empowering hypnosis could be! It was a pleasant surprise and I still marvel at the power of it and how much it has changed so many people’s lives for the better including my own.
After studying and working with hypnosis the shamanic applications of it were so evident, it seems to me now that it must have been inspired by the ancient practice of shamanic journeying and meditation. In my experience and practice, it’s a powerful combination of both. Hypnosis can be used as a tool of self-discovery, which allows us to not only deeply explore our inner world but to begin to heal it. It allows us to discover inner programming and to change it for the better. It can also serve to facilitate a connection to higher consciousness to gain invaluable insights and this has unlimited potential. It’s fascinating and transformative as it reveals to us our own unlimited potential. It is also a practice that we can begin to cultivate and do independently. As any truly empowering tool does, it engenders a sense of personal power, personal responsibility and unlimited possibilities.
