What is Essential Alchemy?
Essential Alchemy is the synthesis of Essential Oils with Alchemical Hypnotherapy in a new, exciting, powerful, cutting-edge technology. The Chinese believe that odors are the gateway to contacting the spirit world, wherein lie the connections to healing our lives. Odors also help us access the subconscious mind and the memories and experiences stored there. Esssential oils amplify, strengthen, and anchor the techniques used in Alchemy, and dramatically increase the results I get with my clients.
What is Alchemical Hypnotherapy?
Hypnosis is a form of deep relaxation, and is the primary method used to contact the subconscious mind for healing. The subconscious mind controls
our emotions, our self-esteem, our immune systems, and our bodies. It is the
part of us that stores the memory of all of our experiences, and has
unbelievable powers. Hypnotherapy practitioners use the hypnotic state to
help clients achieve certain goals such as weight loss, smoking cessation,
or enhanced athletic and vocational performance. Hypnotherapy is a much more
rapid method for achieving these objectives than other forms of therapy.
Alchemy has traditionally been associated with the transmutation of base metals into gold. The ancient alchemists were also interested in transforming the human soul from the "base metals" of human emotions and childhood traumas within the subconscious mind into the "gold" of self-realization.
Alchemical Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic process designed to assist the client in working with their Inner Guides, or archetypes, to change their lives. Alchemical Hypnotherapy is a blend of traditional Shamanism and the ancient science of Alchemy as translated by Carl Jung, with techniques from many modern schools of Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and Psychology. These techniques include Gestalt, Regression Therapy, Emotional Clearing, Psychosynthesis, and Somatic Healing. The client is taken into a moderately deep, alert trance state, and the therapist uses guided imagery to assist the client in releasing negative issues. This is a very client-directed therapy; the goal is to have the client
become their own therapist, and to be able to practice Alchemy on their own.
Contrary to what stage hypnosis and movies would have us believe, a person
in a hpynotic state cannot be programmed to do anything they would not
normally do! My clients are in complete control of their sessions, and we
have a very interactive process. They hear everything we discuss, and recall
everything they need to from our sessions.
Alchemical Hypnotherapy consists of the following processes:
- Healing childhood pain, trauma, and neglect by rescuing
the inner child from past traumas, and providing the inner child
with loving parents in the inner world
- Advanced techniques of past life regression, including contacting
creative abilities and healing karmic debts from past lives
- A sub-personality process that helps unite the conflicting inner voices
that undermine the will and diminish the creative energies with unproductive
- Specialty programs for weight loss, smoking cessation, and
overcoming phobias, addictions, and diseases
- Somatic Healing
Somatic Healing is a new technology for healing the physical body of chronic illness and the residual pain of accident and stress-related injuries, in conjunction with medical treatment. Somatic Healing includes:
- Golden Sun process of hands-on energy channeling
- Hypnotic Movement, which allows the muscles of the affected
area to move in their own unique ways, relieving stress and promoting
healing by gently releasing traumas held in the body
- Access to the Inner Healer who gives us medical advice and
performs spiritual surgery to correct physical problems
Benefits of Somatic Healing include:
- Releasing pain from accident injuries
- Releasing joint pain & repetitive strain
- Freeing trauma & pain stored in organs
- Releasing pain from immobilized conditions, including sciatica, arthritis, & broken bones
What is Aromatherapy?
Aromatherapy is the ancient art of using essential
oils for healing, and dates back to the earliest Egyptian and Chinese
healing traditions. Today, Aromatherapy can be described as the skilled and
controlled use of essential oils for physical, emotional, and spiritual
health and well-being. Essential oils can also be used for cleaning and
purifying the home and for perfumes.
What are Essential Oils?
Essential oils are the distilled aromatic essences of plants which contain healing properties. These essential, or whole, oils carry nutrients and oxygen to the plant, and thus can help oxygenate people who use them. Essential oils target the limbic system of the brain, which is the center of memory, emotion, and motivation.
How do Essential Oils Work?
When an odor is inhaled it impinges on the olfactory epithelium, which contains some 20 million nerve endings. The odor is transmuted into a nerve message, which is amplified by the olfactory bulb, and then passes along the olfactory tract and enters the limbic system. After passing through memory centers and relay stations, this message then produces chemical reactions such as the secretion of endorphins (pain killers), seratonin (a sedative), noradrenaline (which wakes one up), and enkephalins (which produce a euphoric effect). Essential oils also work through application to the skin by being absorbed directly into the bloodstream, and through ingestion, such as in teas.
What Can They Do for You?
Essential oils have been successfully used as adjunct therapy in the treatment of Addictions, Cancer, Depression, Diabetes, Heart Disease, and Spinal Curvatures, also for killing viruses and bacteria, and for burns, bruises, and cuts.
