Grief is universal. We will all experience a loss at some point in our lives. Elisabeth Kübler-Ross in her 1969 book “On Death and Dying.” first proposed five stages of normal grief: Denial, Anger, Bargaining, Depression, Acceptance.
Have you ever gone to sleep and dreamt about someone then the next time you see them you feel differently toward them? They don’t know that you’ve had this dream about them. They haven’t changed but you have - you’ve changed your feelings without ever interacting with them in the physical world. Working with hypnosis to help you move through the grief process often feels like a dream. It’s about changing how you feel when think of your loved one. No, this isn’t mediumship, but clients often feel as if they are talking directly to their loved one. The Rapid Grief Resolution process when done under hypnosis brings highly emotional and power moments that seem almost real. This creates the perfect environment for healing the heart. By doing grief work under hypnosis you are:
- able to communicate feelings and thoughts that might not have been able to be said
- remove anger and guilt by seeing things from a different view
- see the loved one that’s passed in healthy state instead of the state you might have seen them in last
- come to terms with what you’ve lost
I walked into this experience with little prior knowledge about hypnoses outside of the stereotypical associations. I was a little apprehensive, but I was having such a difficult time processing the grief, guilty, loneliness, anxiety, and hurt of losing my dog, Myles, that I was willing to try anything. As I set here and write this after my session with Alanna, I still miss him, but I am overwhelmed with a sense of peace, understanding, and appreciation for life. Alanna brought me to the inner part of my soul where I could completely be myself; a place where I could stand to the real me, and comfort and help her in this time of sorrow. It was simply beautiful. [Next Day] Today was the first day that I really woke up accepting the situation, and being ok with it all. Thank you Alanna for helping me heal. - J.J. Atlanta, GA
