What Is Transpersonal Hypnotherapy?

Transpersonal Hypnotherapy is an orientation toward hypnotherapy that is shared by an increasing number of practitioners who are ready to take the concept of holism to the next logical step. Where holism takes body, mind, and spirit into consideration, transpersonalism goes beyond the individual to consider the deep connections between human beings and our capacity to transcend the limitations of a three-dimensional consciousness.

Transpersonal Hypnosis has also been described as Spiritually Centered Hypnosis; your spiritual beliefs meeting the earthly world for change and healing. It was described by Dr. Allen Chips as “a Crossing of the Body, Mind & Spirit.” It incorporates, not only the body and mind as in clinical hypnosis, but the spirit as well.

The sessions are extremely client based, personalized for the client to address any aspect of their life and the effective relationship between the mind, body and spirit. There is no religious orientation suggested, but instead an unfoldment that synchronistically brings those insights and experiences that lead to the client’s highest good- physically, mentally, emotionally, and/or spiritually. Usually the client (after an extensive interview) requests one of or a series of the following sessions:

  • A Clinical session where the hypnotist induces a very deep relaxation then feeds your subconscious mind your suggestions to create new patterns in your life, supported with your spiritual beliefs, if desired.
  • A Regression requested because you want to experience a past life to know that life is continuous, or you have an awareness of a “block” in your life and want to explore the past to find the link to heal, and move forward in life.
  • A Life between Lives Session to answer the question of “what happens when I die? This session which can be up to 6 hours is based on the original life between lives hypnosis approach of Dr. Michael Newton and Dr. Allen Chips, the latter of whom Linda trained under.  It takes you through the whole regression process of childhood, the womb, the most recent past life, and the spiritual planes of existence, perhaps to healing stations and your spirit counsel, answering questions you have about this life in the pre-birth planning stage.   It also involves the new Chips/Reynolds method which is a client centered, nondirective approach allowing for a wider spiritual –philosophical experience.)
