Q & A: Forgiving God & the Universe? And, Feeling Safe In Age Regression

It’s Friday so that means I have another free hypnosis training video here on

In this episode of Cal Banyan’s Hypnosis Etc. with Elronn Fergusson, I answer a few questions. It’s been a while since I have been able to answer your hypnosis and hypnotherapy questions so let’s get to it!

Here is what we discuss in this video:

  • Age regression and chair therapy done right.

  • When are your clients hyper-suggestible?

  • What if your client needs to forgive God or the Universe?

  • When should the client decide who needs to be forgiven and when should the hypnotists decide?

  • What do you do when “little one” just doesn’t feel safe during age regression?

  • And more!

    Hello Cal, not using my real name here, hope that’s OK.

    I really just wanted you to know how important your 5PATH training has been to my clients. Just today I worked with a client who in about 60 minutes of AR session, was able to attain a level of clarity and insight and peace about highly traumatic series of events that left her with a feeling of relief that she has been pursuing for decades. She said “you wouldn’t believe how much money and time I’ve spent trying to get past this”, by means of regular therapy, group support meetings, classes, books, etc. The therapy she had been through before just focused on talking about and ruminating on her past traumas. When she experienced AR the way you’ve taught it to me/us, it was a completely different experience and she was absolutely blown away by it. Too many people seem to believe the purpose of AR is to simply rehash the past and to cause the client to “revisit past hurts”, as if that will magically result in catharsis — totally missing the point!

    Sadly I worked with an earlier client whose previous hypnotist had done that half-way kind of age regression — where they encouraged the client to revisit bad experiences, without knowing how to properly facilitate insight or change, the hypnotist apparently just thought it’d be enough to tell them to relax, breathe deeply and go to their “safe place”.

    Your training is essential for anyone who wants to do AR’s properly, I think. I have to say as part of continuous experimentation I went and fooled around quite a lot with tricky metaphors and nested loops and embedded command kind of neat-o tricks, but my clients were not getting as consistent results as when doing 5PATH “parsimoniously”. I am not sure full-on AR (meaning thorough SPE-SSE-ISE weeding of every weed) is necessary, practical or appropriate for all situations, but there is absolutely nothing like it when AR hits the spot (as I’m sure you know!)

    It is not possible to overstate my thanks to you on behalf of my clients. Hey have a great weekend!

    From one hypno-1%er to another, you are very welcome. Thanks for sharing your insights with our visitors.

    Keep up the excellent work that you are doing.

    Have a a great weekend as well,

    If god/universe is in harmony and we varied from it why would we need to forgive “(s)he,it” for our error?

  4. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, FNGH March 5, 2010 at 10:06 PM

    Hi Doug – That is a good question.

    The forgiveness is not for God’s sake. It is for the sake of the client, so that the client can gain insight about him/herself and free him/herself from the anger, and become free of the issue that brought the client in for hypnosis/hypnotherapy.

    Thanks for leaving a comment and watching our videos!

    Wow. Where do I start? First off, I LOVE how playful you two are together and your chemistry is awesome. Keep it up! Love the beard and the leather jacket Cal.

    I LOVED that you finally did a show on putting God in the chair, I was a little dissappointed that it didn’t go deeper. Such as some of the problems that can come up like God being the more fire and brimstone you are going to hell God or the client saying ME BE GOD? I can’t do that OR God hates me so why should I forgive him?

    I was AMAZED at how much I got out of the 2nd question. Glad to see something instead of informed Sout technique for clients who can’t or won’t go there. SUPER GREAT AWESOME SHOW!!!

    Great show!

    We did put God in the chair and there was much pillow pounding and anger towards God. I didn’t really know how to make a case for God ( didn’t you grow up in the kind of family where Gods were loved and charished/)

    my client didn’t get to a point of forgiveness of God.

  7. Celeste Hackett March 6, 2010 at 11:47 AM

    That’s kind of what I mean. Forgiveness of others is a little different when the big senor is in the chair. Would love to have more ideas generated here, but first maybe we should get questions from those who have put God in the chair. Guess this means the 5-PATH message board. So hypno-guys and gals what were your challenges with GOD?

    And by the way, God if you are listening, send us some good ideas on how to deal with you tee hee.

  8. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, FNGH March 7, 2010 at 9:54 AM

    Thanks – We can do more on an upcoming show about God Issues if you like. Just let us know what you would like us to discuss and we can easily dedicate some time to it.

    Thank you for so much of your insight and for sharing so much via the internet.
    I have a couple of friends that have Parkinson’s. They share with me that during sleep and when they are at rest that the tremmors are at rest or gone. I notice that when they are thinking about soemting else the tremmors are less too. They are tired of the medication. What if any research has been done with hypnosis and self hypnosis for this debilitating disease? This souds like a job for 7 path training!

  10. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, FNGH March 8, 2010 at 3:47 PM

    Hi Brad – I have not personally worked with Parkinson’s, however, from what I understand, and the experience I have with all the other issues that I have worked with, hypnosis/hypnotherapy done right (in an effective manner) will help any condition that stress/anxiety makes worse.

    So, if stress makes Parkinson’s worse, then properly applied hypnosis will improve the situation. In podcast 106 I get into this. Here is a link if you want to review/listen to that episode,

    I just did a search of the Internet for “hypnosis Parkinson’s” and found a lot of information. Give that a go.

    Any of our member/viewers who would like to cite any studies on this are certainly encouraged to do so.

    Here’s to your success!

  11. Elronn March 9, 2010 at 9:58 AM

    Relieving internal stress is the name of the game. When thinking about debilitating diseases like Parkinson’s, I would venture to say that any improvement would be worth the effort. Sometimes just helping someone have the proper mindset to handle their condition can make all the difference to their perception of the pain, therefore making the stress of having the condition fade into the background. I would also be very interested to hear any first hand experiences of working on this issue.

    Let’s use 5-PATH on everything!
