Hypnosis To Forget Bad Memories: A Common Request Hey guys it’s Sasha. I hope you’re having a fabulous day. I’m here in Santa Monica, over at the Santa Monica mall. My little son is playing inside the little play inside and I wanted to take a moment to talk to you guys about a common request that I get on a regular basis and that is that people often come in and tell me: Listen I’m here because I want you to help me to forget something, I mean, I want to make it so that I never, ever remember what happened again. I explained to them that while hypnosis in the form of hypnotherapy can do many things, amnesia is not one that is gonna work on everybody.
First of all, I know that many times we think: Oh, if I could only but forget something, I’d be so much better off. But our goal really isn’t to forget trauma, our goal is to process it, and make it in such a way where it no longer does what it used to do to us, make it so that it no longer has a hold over us and in being able to do that, what we’re able to do is to release anxiety and depression, both things.
Besides, to be totally honest, I don’t think that that the idea of amnesia through hypnotherapy and hypnosis is something that works on everybody. I think it works on certain people but the majority of people it’s not going to, so I’ll give you a really good example. I’m not gonna be hypnotizing myself to forget the trauma of my childhood, because I had a whole lot of trauma, why would I forget like whole periods of my life. It just doesn’t make sense and so our goal is to really process it, detach from what happened and be able to put it behind us in such a way where we’re able to really move forward with life and be able to live the lives we want to live in the present, feeling empowered and no longer bearing that baggage that weighs upon us. Does that make sense?
So, the next time somebody tells you: Oh my god, I’ve gone through some really bad trauma and I’d love to forget it, you can tell them: Listen that isn’t the way to go about it what you just need is some hypnotherapy and you need some sessions with either Sasha or her team.
Alright guys, well I hope you are having a wonderful day. I hope you’re enjoying this great weather and I look forward to chatting with you again soon.
