1. What is the difference between a QHHT Level 2 practitioner and a Level 3 practitioner?
We are conditioned to equate higher levels of something with higher technical ability. In science or dentistry or ballet, this may be true. However, in the case of QHHT practitioners, the term “Level 3” appears to be misunderstood by many who are searching for a QHHT practitioner. I attended QHHT Level 3 in Toronto in October of 2016. Since then, after having a number of clients ask me the difference between Level 2 and Level 3, I feel it is important to offer my personal perspective regarding this particular “level”.
The Level 2 QHHT practitioner is considered to have received instruction in the QHHT technique at an advanced level by learning further techniques and receiving advice and in-depth interaction on specific areas that can prove to be challenging. Level 3 is simply a review/assessment/fine-tuning process to ensure the practitioner is facilitating QHHT exactly the way Dolores Cannon conducted her sessions, in order to preserve the purity of her system. There is no question that it is important to respect the preservation of a well-designed system especially if the designer (Dolores Cannon) is no longer living. However, there is no tangible new QHHT information being taught to the practitioner during the Level 3 review. They have been taught everything they need to know to have successful sessions through Level 2.
Many QHHT practitioners are also trained in other healing modalities. At times, a QHHT practitioner may feel inspired to include portions of other modalities to their sessions, thereby offering the client what the practitioner may intuitively believe to be a more comprehensive healing session. With this in view, many competent, successful Level 2 practitioners choose not to attend Level 3 because it prohibits them from adding anything beyond what Dolores taught.
When searching for a QHHT practitioner, it is important to understand that the client and the practitioner will be guided to one another by a Higher Power. If the client expects a session in the fashion of how Dolores did her sessions, then it is important to ask the practitioner if they deviate in any way from her method. If the client pays attention to how they feel as they interact with the potential practitioner, their own Higher Self will ultimately let them know if the fit is a good one.
2. What is Past Life Regression?
Past life regression involves a gentle hypnotic regression with guidance through an appropriate past life - one that will provide information relevant to the client's current life, its struggles, challenges, interpersonal relationships and illnesses. Sometimes regressing to earlier times within the current life is all that is needed to find answers, solutions and healing, however it is not uncommon for multiple past lives to be shown by the Subconscious during a session. Generally, approximately 95% of my clients will recall a past life memory and establish contact with the Subconscious. In its infinite wisdom, the Subconscious always selects which past lives to review and it never misses the mark. Healing and understanding are always the goal in a session.
3. What does Dolores Cannon mean by the Subconscious in QHHT?
The Subconscious contacted through QHHT is not the subconscious referred to by medical professionals. Dolores Cannon discovered that, through her unique technique of hypnosis induction, she was communicating with a portion of an individual's consciousness that was, indeed, a part of the individual yet it lay far beyond the level of the conscious mind - this is why Dolores called it the "Subconscious". The Subconscious never forgets. It stores everything about you and it knows what you need in order to make this life one in which you learn and apply lessons in a helpful way. The Subconscious is the deeper, nine-tenths portion of the mind's metaphoric "iceberg of knowledge". I may also refer to it as Spirit, Source, or Source Energy.
The other one-tenth portion of the mind is the conscious mind. It protects you, believing that logic is the answer to life's dilemmas. It often attempts to take credit for the information obtained within the hypnosis session. Once respectfully placed to the side, the conscious mind's absence allows the Subconscious to reflect on how you can heal and regain a state of health without having to repeat illness and disease over and over again. Religions and spiritual teachers have attempted to identify and label this infinitely wiser part of you throughout history using a variety of terms such as the Higher Self, Christ Consciousness, Higher Consciousness, Universal Mind, Oversoul and so on. I encourage you to visit Dolores Cannon's QHHT website at www.dolorescannon.com for more in-depth information about what she referred to as the Subconscious.
4. How deep is the regression hypnosis trance? Can everyone be hypnotized? Do I lose control?
Through the use of voice, imagery and visualization, the client is guided to the theta level of hypnosis (deeper than the alpha level of hypnosis typically reached with traditional hypnosis). The client is not asleep and may remember some, very little or none of the experience. Even if your conscious mind believes it remembers the session, it will begin to quickly fade, the way you forget the details of a dream.
While in a trance, the client never loses control and is able to stop the process at any time. In fact, we go into a hypnotic state naturally, twice a day - when we are falling asleep and when we are waking up, as we pass through theta brain wave activity. We also experience a hypnotic state when we experience something known as "road hypnosis", as we find ourselves driving along without giving much thought to our journey.
5. How does healing occur?
Healing is much more than the suppression of troublesome symptoms that tell us something is wrong. Once we listen to them and to the messages they send, we can find the answer to the underlying root of disease. When Spirit attempts to tell us something is wrong, we often don't listen. That's when Spirit sends the message via physical symptoms because Spirit knows we will listen when we hurt.
Life exploration offers the individual greater understanding through expansion of their perspective of the world in which we live, offering a more holistic sense of interpersonal relationships. The individual is able to connect with a very deep, intimate part of their past, enabling a clearing of those negative energies that stunt growth, cause disease and prevent healing. Time and time again, I have witnessed a healing brought forth purely by the individual grasping the fact that the body is attempting to communicate illness through physical or emotional symptoms. Once those symptoms are recognized as messages of discord and disease from a very deep and sacred place within the individual, the proverbial "aha!" moment occurs and healing follows. When and how the healing occurs is entirely up to the individual and how they interpret and engage with the information received.
Through his research in cloning human muscle cells, cell biologist Dr. Bruce H. Lipton found that our thoughts, feelings, beliefs and emotions affect our cellular behavior. Establishing direct communication with the Subconscious can also provide the basis for healing. You may experience instant healing and clarity about your life or you may see gradual improvement over days, weeks, or months. It all depends upon what is best for you and your life's lessons and how they are intended to unfold. Healing cannot be forced...it must be "allowed".
6. Is regression hypnosis a replacement for medical care?
Regression hypnosis should never be relied on in place of seeking professional medical advice, treatment or diagnosis nor should professional medical care be disregarded or delayed because of something you interpreted on this website. You should promptly seek the advice of a qualified healthcare provider for any medical conditions you may have.
Hypnosis should be thought of as an effective adjunct to the care provided by the healthcare provider. Once the concept of personal responsibility in the healing process is received, explored and understood, the individual is capable of healing far beyond expectations. The practitioner simply serves as a guide through this process.
7. Does regression hypnosis work for healing for everyone?
Healing can occur only if an individual wants to be healed and is ready to be healed, if the healing is in alignment with their Soul's evolution, and if it does not interfere with the spiritual goals of their current lifetime. We are infinite souls who have incarnated on Earth for our own individual experiences. For example, the blind person would not heal his sight if being blind was one of the key aspects of his life that he agreed to experience in order to progress spiritually. Despite how much an individual believes they want to be healed, the possibility of healing is lessened if the individual does not believe it can or will occur or if there is a deep-seated need to hold on to the disease because it "serves a purpose" for the individual in this lifetime. As difficult as it may be to comprehend, there are those individuals who define themselves through their disease. Sadly, they hold onto the disease, pain and suffering the way a drowning swimmer holds onto a lifejacket, as if their personal identity depends on it for survival. The lifejacket serves a purpose. Unfortunately, quite the opposite is true in holding onto disease.
The individual will receive exactly what is "needed" for healing at this time in their life. Nothing more, nothing less. Therefore, it is important to arrive for a session with no expectations.
8. Can we use Skype for a session?
I believe that Skype is not a safe approach for a lengthy hypnotic regression. The practitioner should be physically present at all times in order to maintain appropriate guidance and a safe environment for the client. Imagine what could happen if a hypnotized client's computer experienced a power failure...
9. Do I have to believe in reincarnation and past lives for a successful session?
A personal belief in reincarnation and past lives is absolutely not necessary to undergo a successful session. The most important belief is believing in yourself and the inherent ability of your body to heal itself. Your very wise Subconscious will present visions, pictures, thoughts, feelings and emotions to you in ways through which you are able to make sense of the information it gives you. It's like having a technicolor day dream. The Subconscious believes in perfect health so providing you with the most appropriate time, place and information for insight and understanding is its goal. Rather than thinking of it as a past life, think of it as a story through which you can learn, grow and heal.
10. How long will my regression session take?
Typically, a session will last around 4 to 5 hours. It all depends on you, your ability to relax and trust the process, your conscious mind's resistance and your ability to allow your Subconscious to come forward. When sessions are booked at the Healing Room in Alberta, I set aside the entire day for you, to ensure that so we are not rushed in any way.
11. Can I resume my usual activities after my session?
Because the length of a session is unpredictable, I advise against making plans following your session as rushing impedes progress and healing. You may feel exhilarated after the session, however you will still need some time to re-orient yourself, depending on the depth and breadth of your trance. So, a restful post-session period is preferable. Think of it as gifting yourself with time and space to appreciate and savour the experience.
You should increase your intake of water for the rest of the day to help remove the toxins released during the healing process. You should bring a light snack for after your session to help re-ground you, then you should eat your next meal at the usual time and retire to bed at your usual time. Try to avoid sleeping right after the session in order to prevent disturbing your body's natural rhythm and flow. If you are driving a long distance after the regression session, I recommend having someone else drive for you to ensure your safe return.
12. Where will my session take place?
Your session will take place at my home in Fort Macleod, in a room designed specifically for hypnosis and fondly referred to as The Healing Room. I am located on an acreage in the country with beautiful vistas in every direction. It is peaceful with no distractions to interrupt our time together. I also provide sessions in Ottawa throughout the year and I will travel throughout Canada if a number of sessions are booked in a particular area.
13. Can I bring anyone to my regression hypnosis session?
Your session is a confidential discussion between you and your practitioner. It will involve some very private dialogue between us, so having someone else present during the session is not permitted. Also, having another person present may alter the energy in the room, preventing a sufficiently deep trance thereby hindering a successful session.
14. What do we talk about during the session? What kind of questions can I ask?
The first hour or so of your session consists of a discussion between us during which time we will discuss your current life. You will provide me with some specific questions to ask your Subconscious while you are in trance. We will also review the hypnosis induction process so there are no surprises for you.
15. How does "left brain" and "right brain" thinking affect a regression session? What if I am analytical?
According to the left-brain/right-brain dominance theory, the left side is considered to be more in tune with logic, critical thinking, reasoning, and analysis whereas the right side is better at creativity, expressing emotions, music, images and intuition. We use both sides, however one side usually dominates. The left-brain thinker is exactly that - a "thinker" using the conscious mind - and this can make the process of getting to a deep level of trance a bit more of a challenge. Just a challenge, not an impossibility.....
For the individual who has difficulty visualizing, it helps to understand that the part of the mind that will be called upon during a session is the same part of the mind used in visualizing day-to-day. For instance, we visualize as we read a good book or as we imagine what our bedroom or kitchen looks like, how our pet feels when touched or how certain music makes us feel. It comes to us naturally but only if we allow it to occur. The practitioner is trained to assist the client to work through these hiccups if and when they do occur.
16. How do I schedule a regression hypnosis session?
Weekday and weekend sessions are available. Please email me directly for session availability and for further information. To book a session with me, see the Contact page. For upcoming sessions across Canada, please see the Menu page: Sessions in Canada.
17. What if I'm looking for a Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique practitioner closer to where I live?
I would be very happy to assist you with a session. If you are traveling a great distance, I can recommend local hotels and bed & breakfast establishments. If you are looking for a practitioner closer to where you live, I can help you with that. Please let me know if you need assistance with this.
18. Do you do speaking engagements or group regressions regarding regression hypnosis?
A speaking engagement offers me the opportunity to share the beauty of regression hypnosis. A group regression offers your group the opportunity to engage in the beauty of the experience. I do both.
