Is Hypnosis Just a Pie in The Sky?

Hypnosis is my passion. I love regression hypnosis. The hypnosis sessions that I facilitate honours the ancient ways, dating back as far as 1550 BC. As a holistic wellness practitioner who is also a Reiki Master, Crystal Healer, NLP Life coach and Psychic Development teacher, I combine the ancient and modern ways together with one objective in mind – serving your personal success best! Spiritual regression hypnosis is regression hypnosis with a gentle, kind, loving fully supportive spiritual approach.

Despite the incredibly positive benefits of regression hypnosis, there are still some general misconceptions around this time-honoured practice. People are surprised when I tell them that you can get up during your session, go to the bathroom, wash your hands and ease right back into the deep level of trance. Even though you are profoundly relaxed during spiritual regression hypnosis sessions, you are the furthest things from from being asleep. More about this in misconception number 5 of this article. Let’s kick off with misconception number 1 regarding hypnosis.

Regression Hypnosis Misconception #1

Hand-in-hand with the misconception that spiritual regression hypnosis is about surrendering full control over to another person who can do with you as they please, is that which reasons that regression hypnosis is a service best reserved for the ladies. I have had great successes, conducting spiritual regression hypnosis session with both men and women. In fact, men often find it easier to open up to me because they are not concerned about appearing weak in-front of another woman. I don’t judge either way and welcome both genders equally.

Regression hypnosis in itself is a simple concept. During the induction part of your session, where the hypnosis facilitator gently guides you into a deep level of relaxation, you make the gentle transition past the ‘gatekeeper‘ that separates the full awareness of the subconscious from the conscious mind during our daily lives. All the answers and solutions you ever need are really right there, with you all the time in your own subconscious mind. Hypnosis is a highly effective way of gaining clarity on those answers, the personal solutions that suit you best.

Regression Hypnosis Misconception #2

I will admit, initially, I was dead-set against the idea of facilitating spiritual regression hypnosis sessions online. As a person who loves people, I love the personal experience of one to one interaction a lot. When you conduct an in-person hypnosis session, you get to see the person entering certain levels of trance. To me, this is about as beautiful as watching the sun’s first morning rays appear across the horizon. Then Covid-19 arrived and I could no longer facilitate in-person spiritual regression hypnosis sessions.

Life, I believe, is one incredible development opportunity. Around two years before the global Coronavirus pandemic outbreak, I was strongly guided to study NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming). Thank goodness I listened! NLP helps one become a better listener and therefore also a far more effective communicator. My passion for NLP and helping others reach their greatest potential contributes greatly to the online spiritual regression hypnosis sessions, which I now really love doing.

Regression Hypnosis Misconception #3

You are surrendering to no one or nothing but yourself, during your session! This point follows on from misconception number 1; the fear of losing control. Some people would love to have a spiritual regression hypnosis session, but are highly concerned about revealing something embarrassing or incriminating. The truth is, you will not. Spiritual regression hypnosis sessions are recorded and because your subconscious mind is so super smart, it can leave a very clear message for you to grasp afterwards, without me even being aware of it. Remember, hypnosis is you speaking to you, much like getting clear guidance from your truest higher council, whom understands you best!

You are always in control. Nobody can make you do anything that goes against your personal principles, morals, values and beliefs. Not even specially trained psychology personnel could break that eternally conscious human code that never takes a break. The simple truth is, whilst the hypnosis practitioner is giving the voice prompts, you are the one choosing to follow them. Did you know that if anything untoward took place during your hypnotic session, you will become fully conscious and present without anyone needing to guide you towards it?

Regression Hypnosis Misconception #4

So, if you are surrendering nothing, how is it that some people have stories about becoming stuck in trance? What about the stage hypnotist who makes you dance around like a chicken or enjoy a onion perceived as a delicious apple? A spiritual regression hypnosis practitioner gently guides your mind into a trance, whereas the stage hypnotist deliberately overwhelms it. The conscious awareness suffers information overload, so it temporarily releases control to a ‘trusted‘ source.


  • You cannot get stuck in hypnosis
  • Hypnosis has nothing to do with sleep, in fact you are more awake than ever
  • If the hypnotist does get you to sleep and leaves you, you’ll wake up by yourself
  • It is rare to have amnesia after hypnosis, but luckily everything is recorded for you

There are those times when people reported becoming stuck in trance. As safe as hypnosis is, I always advise you to make sure that the person conducting your session is well-equipped and experienced in their skill. Ask questions and do not stop until you are fully satisfied with the answers you receive. Certain subconscious beliefs can create the experience of being a victim of an incompetent hypnosis practitioner. A thorough pre-consultation (as I do for all my clients) will clear that fog right up for you.

Regression Hypnosis Misconception #5

We already covered this topic. However, since it is such an area of concern, I wanted to clarify it for you – hypnosis and sleep are two very different things, altogether! Sleep puts you to full unconscious rest. During sleep, some of your conscious awareness shuts off. In the hypnotic state, you enter a state of profound relaxation, yet your conscious awareness of everything heightens increasingly. For example, if you suddenly smell gas from a gas leak somewhere close-by during your hypnosis session, you will be fully aware of that leak, even though you are in deep trance. Your conscious mind will register imminent danger immediately without the hypnotherapist having to alert you of any potential danger.

Hypnosis is not sleep. In a hypnosis session, you are totally conscious and pretty much aware of everything happening around you. If you didn’t feel like you were hypnotised before, it may be because you had expectations of what the hypnosis experience should feel like or the hypnotist did not clearly explain what hypnosis does and doesn’t feel like aka; is and is not.  I do some exercises with my clients before their sessions to remind them of what trance feels like so that they can drop their expectations and go with the flow of their session, therefore gaining optimally from it.

In conclusion, during hypnosis, your vast subconscious mind is accessed, with the clear intention of releasing outdated, non-positive serving patterns, embracing better serving pathways. The clear intention is to incorporate better serving life patterns for you. The conscious mind contains all of the thoughts, memories, feelings, and wishes that we are aware at any given moment, whereas the unconscious mind is a reservoir of feelings, thoughts, urges, and memories that are outside of our conscious awareness.

Spiritual regression hypnosis sessions have the potential to change your life in highly positively, and in some cases really fast too. Will there still be work to be done afterwards? Absolutely, but you will reap the benefits of having subconsciously accepted personal beliefs, values and virtues that serve you in highly positively ways, instead of the childhood, karmic, traumatic and past lives patterns that boomerang your best efforts to succeed in the game of life, prior to your hypnosis session.

My regression hypnosis sessions are R1750 / $111USD per session. Sessions are provided online via Zoom, with a video copy of your session being sent to you afterwards. I only facilitate a few of these sessions per month (usually 2 or 3) depending on availability. Do email me beforehand to agree on a time and date, before going ahead and making payment. Some months my schedule does not allow for any sessions at all. I super look forward to helping you unlock your greatest life potential!!! Rates and availability provided here may be outdated.
