Uncovering the Past

Change your life change your Past

This interactive hypnosis script uses a special form of regression. It goes back to childhood, but it does not try to get the person to find a Magic Waterfallmemory. What this hypnotic regression script does is to focus the attention on the thing that the person will not look at, the thing they refuse to remember.

The Uncovering the Past script takes the client back and uses a metaphor to permit them to gradually and safely get to the thing that is really driving their behavior, and deals with it symbolically. They never need to confront the actual memories. Then the therapist can use any hypnosis technique to sort out the issues that underlie the problem.

Candle Hypnosis Induction

   
  Take a deep breath.    
  Take another deep breath and let your eyes close.    
  and one more breath... and as you breath out... you can let it all go...   Breathing induction
  That's right. And now imagine that your whole body is relaxing... feel your arms getting heavy... your legs feeling heavy... your whole body is getting heavy... loose and soft and heavy... D Kinesthetic induction
  and your eyes are getting heavy...    
  and imagine you are in a room somewhere... dim and quiet... V  
  and it is soft and warm and comfortable there... and there are candles shining softly all around... many many candles...    
  and now imagine that with each breath out... as you relax... a candle goes out...    
  and on the next breath... another candle goes out... and then with every gentle breath out .... more and more candles go out... and you can imagine that room getting dim and dark... dim and dark and quiet and peaceful...   Candle Visualization induction
  until all those candles have gone out... and you are totally relaxed.... totally at ease... [Pause] D  
  [Now do an eye catalepsy test]   Test for trance
 

Uncover the past

   
  and as you are lying there... breathing gently... feeling heavy... relaxed...   pacing
  imagine you are going down a long corridor.... V  
  and each breath is taking you deeper and deeper down that corridor now...   Deepening
  and you can go deeper still... safe and warm and comfortable...   Reassurance
  and as you go deeper... you are getting the feeling of leaving behind all the things in the present... they are not important right now...   Dissociation
  what is important is drifting away... down that corridor.... drifting back...   deepening
  back to your childhood...   target
Memory and in this state you can remember many things... you can become aware of things that have been hidden away for a long time... things that might be frightening or painful, or that are avoided...   Priming the unconscious
  And when you are in this state... you will find that these things cannot harm you... nothing in your own mind can ever harm you... D Reassurance
  and in that place...   Dissociation
Memory there is a feeling... there is a feeling of something.... something that has been there a very long time.... something deep and hidden...   Let them identify their problem
  a feeling that you are bad, or not good enough... a feeling or failure or shame... a feeling of having to do something... some feeling that is always there....   many alternatives
  and you may have a special name for it... or a way of thinking about it... the experience of it... but it is always there...   personal knowledge
  and it has been unreachable... I Hint at change

  And that thing... that feeling... focus on that old feeling...

  So do what has to be done to get rid of that thing for ever... and everything it represents...    
  and then imagine what you would like to have in its place... something you would like... something useful... something bright and happy perhaps... and it has gone forever...   Replace the symbol
 

Reorientation

   
Behavior And coming back from that experience... you are free to choose to come back to the present or to take some time and decide what you want your future to be... to enjoy thinking about how things can be different now... that you have the right to change... the right to choose...    
  So think about what you want... and when you are ready ... come back to full awareness in your own time... in your own way... ready for a new future...
