Overcoming Boomerang Symptoms & Behaviors

This hypnosis training podcast covers an advanced topic, how to work with and overcome what I call Boomerang Symptoms. This is when a symptom or other issue that you are working with reoccurs after a few weeks or a few months of having had the issue, problem or symptom cease being a problem.

Typical issues that have this occur are:

  • Habits

  • Compulsions

  • Obsessions

  • Fears/ Phobias

  • Eating problems such as binging and overeating

  • Chronic pain

During this program I give a brief explanation of 5-PATH®. You can learn more about 5-PATH® by reading these articles:

To become certified in 5-PATH® you can take a live course or take our video distance learning course.

In this hypnosis podcast you will learn how to deal directly with the boomerang symptom syndrome. There are two major reasons for this to happen. First and main cause of this problem that the work done in Phases I through IV were insufficient (Age Regression, Forgiveness of Others, and Forgiveness of Self work), or there is significant Secondary Gain issues that need to be dealt with and as a result you will need to move into Phase V (Parts Mediation Therapy).

Please leave comments and let us know if you have any hypnosis or hypnotherapy questions that you would like to see covered in one of my podcasts.

    I just received a question about this podcast by email. I thought I would post it here along with my answer.

    Here’s to your success,

    QUESTION: I just listened to the podcast and it was very helpful… I have a question. What is the reason you do affect bridge regression first rather than time, calender?

    ANSWER: As 5-PATHers, We do:
    Phase I: Preparation, Testing and Convincing. Then…
    Phase II: Age Regression (AR) to Cause. Then…
    Phases III & IV, followed by V if needed to work with secondary gain issues.

    Since we are doing AR in the Phase II we need to follow the emotion or sysmptom back to when it started. This information (about what caused the problem) is usually not available to the conscious mine of the client so we use affect bridge or symptom bridge to find the ISE.

    In the case of boomerang symptoms (the problem comes back), we want to regress our client back to a time since our last appointment when the symptom came up. Since that time IS known consciously, we will regress to that time, then we will conduct affect or symptom bridge regression after first regression to the known event, to find out if there is a second ISE or if more work need to be done with the ISE and SSEs that we worked with previously.
