Hypnotherapy

“Do not allow yourself to suppress your thoughts.  Instead, let the thoughts come before you and become a sort of observer.  Start observing your own mind.  Do not try to escape; do not be afraid of your thinking.”

Swami Rama

Josslyn is not currently doing Hypnosis with clients as she can do more with Reiki Psychic Healing.  But, she is happy to refer you to some very good Hypnotherapists locally if you would like her to.

Hypnotherapy with Josslyn

Josslyn completed two years of Hypnotherapy training from Hypnosis Motivation Institute in Tarzana, CA in 2000.  She is qualified to work with clients on most issues not requiring a Psychologist or Psychiatrist.  And is willing to work with your doctors to help you on your healing journey.  Issues, such as, stress relief, depression, self-empowerment, removing emotional blocks, self-esteem and confidence building, grief, fears and phobias, addictions, and much more.

Past Life Regression

Josslyn’s real passion with using hypnotherapy is for past life regression.  She has been called a time traveller by more than one psychic.  Exploring past lives is not just fun, it is incredibly therapeutic.  Many physical, mental, emotional and spiritual ailments can be cleared up with this therapy.  It is quite amazing.  Josslyn has helped clients in the past with eczema, fears, phobias, addictions, physical aches and pains, depression, lack of self-esteem and self-confidence, birth trauma that she can think of.  Hypnotherapy is extremely empowering to the client as well because they are directly involved in the healing that is taking place.

Hypnotherapy Combined with Energy Healing

However, Josslyn uses hypnotherapy as a combined healing technique to the energy healing by choice.  She has found from years of experience that she can do all and more with the energy healing combined with hypnotherapy.  She uses her intuition as to when the client needs which modality that she offers.  She feels it is important to have many modalities available because everyone is different and every situation is different.  Some situations a client is working on may call for energy healing and some may do better with hypnotherapy.   Hypnotherapy is highly beneficial when a client wants to experience past life regression for themselves and/or work on their visualization skills with a qualified Hypnotherapist by their side.  This is how Josslyn initially worked on her visualization abilities.

If you are looking specifically for someone only to do hypnotherapy then Josslyn would be happy to refer you to someone locally in Sequim who specializes in that.

Hypnotherapy must be done in person, no long distance sessions available.

COST

  • Sessions with Josslyn cost $25 for every 15 minutes or $95 per hour.
  • A first time full session takes a minimum of two hours.
  • A full session with just energy healing (Reiki and/or IEH) usually lasts about 45 minutes to one hour.
  • After a first time full session then you can request a mini session for 30 minutes minimum, in 15 minute increments, especially if you have a certain area that you want to concentrate on.
  • A full session with Reiki and psychic information usually takes about two hours.

What Is Hypnosis?

Hypnosis is a natural state of selective, focused attention, and, even though it is 100% natural and normal, it remains one of the most fascinating phenomena of the human mind. Our ability to enter this unique state of consciousness opens the door to countless possibilities for healing, self-exploration and change.

The focused state of hypnosis allows changes to intentionally be made “automatically”, changes that we could not ordinarily consciously make.

Hypnosis has been used in the treatment of pain, depression, anxiety, stress, habit disorders, self-empowerment, grief and sadness, addictions, and many other psychological and medical problems.

Sorry, this won’t happen no matter what part of the brain you are accessing.

What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?

When hypnotized the client feels very calm and peaceful.  They will feel that they are in a very deep state of relaxation but always having full control over their behavior.  A person will never do anything under hypnosis that they would not do normally.  When hypnotized, an individual is very open to suggestions that can enhance the positive and diminish the negative physical and emotional reactions.

Most people have experienced hypnosis in their every day lives.  Have you ever drive home from work, pulled into your driveway and then all of a sudden realized you’d gotten home and wondering how you got there?  Maybe you forgot the last five or ten minutes of the drive?  You made every stop, turned every turn and got home safely but don’t remember all of it?  This happens more often than we’d like to believe due to overly stressful days.  After a day of too much input (stress)  our mind goes on autopilot, when we were actually functioning in a completely different part of our brain, in a hypnotic state so to speak.

Can anyone be hypnotized?

Some people find it easier to relax than others. By the same token, some people are able to go into trance more quickly and more deeply than others. About 85% of people can go into at least a light trance. For most therapeutic goals, light trance is enough to enable almost everyone to benefit from hypnotherapy to some extent.

 Will I be asleep or unconscious?

The word hypnosis comes from the ancient Greek word ‘Hypnos’ meaning sleep, but it is 
improperly named. Hypnosis is NOT sleep. Sleep and hypnosis may seem similar since we 
may be relaxed and have our eyes closed (although not necessarily), but there are 
many differences. One main difference is that we tend to be in a relaxed state, but with heightened awareness! If a person were to fall asleep during a session, they would return to normal consciousness when asked to, or simply awaken after a short nap. 
They would feel refreshed, relaxed and would have no ill effects at all.

“I don’t think I was hypnotized–I heard every word you said!”

Different brain waves

Some people, after a session of hypnosis, don’t believe that they were hypnotized at all. 
This likely comes from misconceptions about just what a ‘trance’ really is. There are 
differences between the brain waves of people who are asleep and those who are in 
trance. In practice, people who are hypnotized often talk with the hypnotist, and can both answer and ask questions, hear everything that is said very clearly, and are perfectly well aware.

BOOKS

 Here is a list of Joss’ favorite books about hypnotherapy and past life regression.  There are a TON of books on the subject.  Joss recommends you go to your local bookstore or on-line and use your intuition to feel which ones speak to you.  This is how she chooses all her books.

Children’s Past Lives by Carol Bowman

Children’s Past Lives by Carol Bowman was the FIRST book I ever read on the subject of past lives. It had a major impact on my path.

 

 “Remarkable Healings” & “Memories of God and Creation”  both by Dr. Shakuntala Modi   

“Journey of Souls” & “Destiny of Souls” by Dr. Michael Newton, case studies of life in between lives.  Another amazing author and hypnotherapist.

“Edgar Cayce, You Can Remember Your Past Lives” by Robert Smith and “Edgar Cayce on Reincarnation” by Noel Langley, edited by Charles Thomas Cayce and Hugh Lynn Cayce.

“Living Your Past Lives: The Psychology of Past Life Regression” by Karl Schlotterbeck

“Past Lives, Future Loves” by Dick Sutphen

“Many Lives, Many Masters”, “Only Love Is Real”, “Through Time Into healing” and “Same Soul, Many Bodies” all by the remarkable Dr. Brian L. Weiss

Amazing books by Dr. Brian Weiss!

  1. What if I just wanted a hypnotherapy session? How much would that cost on its own? And does it have to be two hours for the first time? I’m not sure if I need that long, but that would be up to you since you are the hypnotherapist. You would have to decide how long each particular issue needs.

    • Hi Clara, thank you for reading and for your wonderful questions. I charge for my time– all the same to keep it simple. $80 per hour. $20 for every fifteen minutes thereafter. The first session is always at minimum two hours due to getting to know each other, talking about your healing goals and getting used to each others energy. If the hypnotherapy ends up going into past lives, this typically takes a good amount of time anyway and will often end up being two hours. In hypnotherapy in the beginning it may take more time because the client is accessing abilities they may not have used prior to this event, such as visualization. When I do Reiki, I’m the one doing the visualization and I’m trained at this so there isn’t a learning curve like when the client is the one doing it. This takes some time and patience in the beginning. I don’t do as much hypnotherapy any longer because I found I can do anything with Reiki that I could do with hypnotherapy and I can do it very easily long distance. But, it’s really up to each client and what they feel most comfortable with. Feel free to call me at 360-460-7829 if you want to talk in person. I’m happy to answer questions since it helps you to decide what you are needing at this time. Blessings, Josslyn

  2. I was wondering if you could use Reiki to help me with my dream recall. I want to learn how to have lucid dreams, but first I need to be able to remember my dreams. I don’t know how to do this, except for a dream journal. But that doesn’t do any good when I don’t remember any dreams.

    • Hi Clara, thanks for reading and asking questions. I’m sorry, I don’t have any experience in this area of lucid dreaming and working with Reiki for dreams. I do know that Reiki helps us with whatever is for our highest good and heals what we need healed most. So, if this is for your highest good, working with Reiki yourself daily would help. I recommend to most people taking a Reiki class themselves so they can do most of their own healing work. We all need others to help us too, we are set up to be community beings, but empowering ourselves to do much of it, to feel spiritually empowered is very important. Reiki can help with that too. Just an idea. Sorry I can’t be of more help with the lucid dreaming part.
      Blessings,
      Josslyn
