Although this blog often boasts about the benefits of hypnosis, some people may still doubt or ignore it as a powerful tool. So here is yet another example of how hypnosis is being used everyday.
Age Regression is a one of the tools Certified Hypnotherapists have at their disposal. It differs from Past life Regression in that Past life Regression is a Novelty, and Age Regression is used in Therapy. In some cases it is used in Forensics. It provides the ability to go back and recall memories with much greater clarity. It is not uncommon to re-experience events exactly as they happened. A person that was regressed back to first grade would talk and write the way they did back then. Memories past that time have not occurred.
It is much like reading a book and going back to a specific chapter. The events in later chapters have not been read, and they have no influence on the memories being recovered. Because of this the memories recovered are very vivid. Not only memories are re-experienced, but smells, sounds, tastes, physical sensations are there too. Practical applications include dealing with fears or if you prefer the word
Many instances the fears start from an event in the past. By going back to the event, it can be resolved by re-experiencing the event and seeing it from a less threatening perspective. Other uses of Age Regression can be to help with OCD, or even Panic attacks. The list is very long as to the applications. In forensics it can be used to recover bits of information that a witness may have forgotten. Examples license plates, descriptions and so on.
Age Regression can be done so the person can experience the event all over again, or it can be as if seeing it from a movie. This is the preferred method when dealing with a traumatic memory. It provides a way to see the memory and not re-experience it. For an example a rape victim may not want to experience the assault again. But would feel more comfortable viewing it from a distance. The same memories will be recovered.
Often a Psychologist or Psychiatrist will send their more difficult patients to a Hypnotherapist to help discover the source of issues that are hidden in the past. A Hypnotherapist can use Age regression as part of a relationship enhancement therapy as opposed to a relationship counselor, who simply does not have this tool. All a relationship counselor can do is hope to make tomorrow a better day. Yet With hypnosis, you can make yesterday, today and tomorrow better.
