WHAT IS HYPNO-ANALYSIS?

Renee Sakr

Hypno-analysis is a special technique that we use to analyze the cause of a symptom or an ailment.

Hypno-analysis is a deeper form of treatment than direct or indirect suggestions. It helps practitioners find the cause and the origin of the symptom and how to deal with that cause instead of dealing with the symptom. For example, let's say someone comes to you to eliminate the habit of nail biting. If you were to put that person into Hypnosis and deal with the nail-biting by giving the person direct suggestions such as:

"Every time your hand comes close to your mouth with the intention of biting your nails, your awareness heightens and you will become aware of what you are doing and you bring that hand down."  "The moment you put any of your fingers in your mouth with the intention of biting your nails, your finger tips will taste bitter, actually they taste horrible and your stomach will progressively become nauseated and more and more nauseated. The moment you tell yourself I am in control, I stopped doing that, I feel better without the fingers in my mouth, I don't need that, I have kicked the habit etc."

In the above examples, you have provided appropriate suggestions that might work and the client might stop the nail-biting habit.

However, if the nail-biting is associated with some bottled emotions which are still boiling inside which we call deep-seated emotions, then what happens afterwards is that the subconscious mind will create another ailment or symptom to replace the previous one. This process is automatically done by the subconscious mind to take the client's mind off the bottled emotions and the hurt.

When we perform Hypno-analysis and find out the cause of the ailment or the symptom, and then re-pattern it and focus on forgiveness, self-esteem, ego strengthening or parts therapy, it is like pulling the tree from its roots, burning it and then replacing it with a new one (the positive things). This way we would have eliminated the ailment or symptom once and forever. In more traditional approaches, we would run the risk of cutting one branch (the symptom) and letting another branch or two grow instead. In essence, we would be attempting to remove the symptom rather than the root cause.

Case Histories:

I worked with a 14 year old girl who have had splitting Migraine for eight years. Every time she had the Migraine, she would turn very pale, her lips would become blue and she would develop a big sensitivity to light, so every time she had a headache, she had to go lay in bed and cover herself over her head in order not to see the light. The first time I met her we were in a party and I saw that young lady laying her head on the table. I asked about what was wrong with her and I was told she has a Migraine. I was also told that her dad was a doctor and that he would give her some kind of analgesic that is very strong of which each pill was $14.00 and she would be a little better soon.

I spoke with her parents and explained to them that I could help their daughter with Hypnotherapy and that would get her out of that migraine cycle into a healthy life with no migraine and no side effects from the medicine. They agreed and she was brought to me after 3 months (probably after a lot of thinking by the parents). I worked with her four sessions. She was very responsive to Hypno-analysis. During the History intake she told me that sometimes she wakes up with Migraine. During our Hypno-analysis session I took her back to her dreams and let her tell me what she was experiencing, I then worked on re-framing and thought re-processing and subsequently we stopped the migraine from any origin, whether during the day or waking up with it cycle.

She has not had one in three years. She also stopped biting her nails and she improved her attitude and her grades at school and became a lot more receptive at home. I get a lot of referrals now from her Dad who is a doctor as well as from her Mom who tells everybody she meets about the Miraculous healing of her daughter.

Case Two: I was teaching a Self-Hypnosis class in Florida Community College my students were very interested in Hypno-analysis and requested me to show them how it is done. I told the class I needed a volunteer and that volunteer needs to get me a doctor referral allowing me to work with him or her. I did not think any body was going to go through the trouble to go to a doctor and bring me a referral. But I was wrong.

The next week when the class met again, a lady in her 50's approached me and gave me a doctor's referral. She wanted to work with weight that she has had all her life. I scheduled that for the coming week.

I worked with her for two hours, one time only. During the 8 weeks of the class she lost 14 pounds with no further work or suggestions from me other then one-group session for losing weight.

Note: In both cases the reasons for the problems were minute or you might even say funny, but at the time it happened for that little individual who was helpless and hopeless about changing the situation, it created negative energies and energetic imbalances.

JACKSONVILLE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE: MEMBER OF THE WEEK:

Renee Sakr: Goldlite Hypnosis Institute:

If an opportunity existed which allowed you to reduce your high blood pressure, heal your headache/ migraine, release mental bloc, stop smoking, or lose weight, would you take advantage of it? How about if you were able to better manage your time, improve your sales performance, control your stress or improve your memory and energy level? Certified Hypnotherapist, Renee N. Sakr, of Goldlite Hypnosis Institute, promises this and more. Hypnosis has both therapeutic and improvement benefits. As described above, therapeutic applications include painless childbirth, pain management, sleep disorders, panic and anxiety attacks, nail biting, fears and phobias, and overcoming depression. In fact, in 1958, the American Medical Association formally adopted hypnosis as a viable treatment tool for many therapeutic applications.

Ms. Sakr explains that hypnosis also has personal self-development benefits. Examples are communication skills, assertiveness, mental attitude, freedom from worry, stage fright, enhanced creativity, self-esteem, confidence, sports performance, test performance and study habits.

What makes Renee Sakr so effective is her insistence on treating the cause of the problem. As she explains, "Our philosophy is to work with the root cause of the problem and not with the symptom by changing negative energies and imbalances into positive energies. Although the cause of an imbalance might be ridiculous or even silly, it is the effect that matters, and the effect is a negative energetic field. When we remove the negative energy and create a new way of thinking and perceiving, the person’s life will no longer be affected by that negativity." It’s more difficult than it sounds which is why credentials are so important. Renee Sakr is certified in her field, and is a member, an instructor and a faculty member of the National Guild of Hypnotists and a faculty member of Florida Community College. She has been nominated by the National Registry Who’s Who, an organization based in Washington, as an Honored Professional As the Executive Director of Goldlite Hypnosis Institute, she teaches, trains and certifies new practitioners. She is also a Certified Hypnotherapy Instructor by N.G.H.

Hypnosis is often a misunderstood science, shunned by some religious groups. But Ms. Sakr places hypnosis within a framework of psychology and caring: "Hypnosis is a vehicle to get a complete relaxation of the body and mind. The body goes to sleep but the mind is 100% more alert than usual. In that situation we can bypass the critical faculties of the mind and establish selective thinking." Often, only one session is needed, as is usually the case with smoking cessation. But, as Ms. Sakr indicates, if there is an underlying cause such as stress, the client will most likely return for stress management. In corporate accounts, Ms. Sakr goes to the business location and conducts group sessions for improving sales for example.
