    WOW – I’ve been reading Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy (Amazon delivered on Friday and I read until exhausted last night).  I’m planning to have Cal and Jerry sign my copy at the NGH Convention. 
    Back to the podcast: The sharing of relevant, client-centered information is so generous – absolutely in keeping with the quality and generosity in your book. 
    I send my deepest thanks to Cal and Meredith for this podcast.  I look forward to all my future experiences with you.  Also, I want to thank any other people involved in making this possible – those behind the camera.
    Very best regards,
    Zane Szurgot, CHT

    Another great podcast Meredith and Cal. Thanks so much When is the best time to give the post hypnotic suggestion on going back to the same depth of hypnosis in the first session? Because the client will move up and down through the session how can we be sure that she is still in somnambulism at the end which is when we would normally do it. I will sometimes give a phs after a particular technique and then again at the end, just for reinforcement, is this necessary. Up to now I have always tested for somnambulism in each session so guess I have found some more time for the therapy. Thanks love your work. Elaine

    Elaine – Thanks for your kind remarks. We love to hear that we are helping others like you to help others. 🙂

    I normally give the post hypnotic suggestion for going quickly back into hypnotic somnambulism right after the convincer, i.e. eyelid catalepsy. I’ve already tested covertly for somnambulism at this time.

    In my opinion, there is no problem with doing additional suggestion in this regard at the end of the session.

    If you are doing work like age regression and parts work, I don’t see the need to test for somnambulism in each session. If they are experiencing revivification in the age regression, and hallucinating being with with a part of themselves in the parts work, then they are in somnambulism. But if you are not sure, there is no problem with deepening and testing for somnambulism, as long as you can do it quickly and don’t waste too much time.

    Keep up the good work. You sound like a 1%er to me.

    Hello dear Meredith and cal, thanks for your great postcads. They’ve already helped me a lot. I have already learned a lot about AR. Now…, my client came to me with a lot of issues: Fear of doctors, fear of dead, choronic worries and stresss, no self confidence, … to tell about some of them. In two weeks he will come to me again, and I wonder how to start at all? Which issue to address first? Use the affect bridges for him?  …

    My goodness …, confused somehow…. Thanks for your help,
    Love,  Alex

    Hello Alex – Thanks for leaving a comment and question for us.

    It is common for clients to come with a “laundry list” of things they want to work on. I have each client narrow it down to THE most important thing, and then that is were we start. Buy the way, since “fear” is associated with all the issues that you mentioned, there is a good chance that when you work on the one issue, the other issues may clear up as well. They may all be connected. When you neutralize the basic “fear” then all these issues may collapse.

    If they don’t all clear up while you are working on the most important issue, after that issue is cleared up, then go on to the next issue and so on.

    With you on the Path

    Another good and informative video Cal and Meredith. Yes, you do have to bring up the emotion, so it is a proper bridge to the initial sensitizing effect. Always enjoy your videos and the banter too which is good. Warm Wishes, Michael

  7. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH July 3, 2012 at 9:17 AM

    Thanks Micheal. Let us know if there are any new topics you would like us to cover.

    And, we will banter on,
