Reprogramming Hypnosis Deletes Trauma: A Young Child’s StoryGale Glassner Twersky
One of my clients who had just recently finished reading Reprogram Your Subconscious: How to Use Hypnosis to Get What You Really Want, reported that it had opened her eyes to a whole new world of opportunities for positive change for herself as well as for her loved ones. She sent me the detailed description of what had transpired between her and her young granddaughter. She gave me permission to print it so it may help you in unlimited ways:
My eight year old granddaughter pulled me aside and asked if she could talk to me in private. She began crying as she started telling me about a hurtful, unpleasant incident that she experienced several months ago. After listening to her for several minutes I told her I could see how upset and hurt she was, but the incident was over and we couldn’t change it. I said that she had a choice, to continue feeling the pain or delete it from her thoughts. [The grandmother used the “computer brain” imagery as addressed in the book.] I touched the side of my head. She stopped crying and pondered what I said, then touched the side of her head and said, “Delete”. A big, bright smile lit up her face and we hugged. She has not mentioned that painful situation again.
[Gale’s note: This technique is appropriate for young children approximately five through eleven years old because most often they already are in a very subconsciously suggestible state of mind. After directing the child to delete what was negative, have the child imagine a happy thought/image that is associated with purely happy feelings. Then ask the child to project the new, very positive happy thoughts/images/feelings onto their imaginary computer screen. Then ask the child to “enter” or “download” these positive things by pressing down on the “Enter” key on their imaginary keyboard. Be sure that the child replaces the negative experiences/feelings/images with positive ones.]
