My training at the Florida Institute of Hypnotherapy has awakened me to the profound importance of relationships and interactions. We, as humans, since the time of our conception, have been in constant interaction with others. Starting with the relationship with our mothers in the womb. As we grow as children, we have many people around us: mom, dad, siblings, uncles, aunts, grandparents, neighbors, friends, etc...
Most hypnotherapists, when dealing with a client's issue, will use the regression technique to go to a ISE (initial sensitizing event) and will heal the memory of the client to heal their issue. It's a very beautiful technique.
 

However, something was missing. At FIH we are taught of something even more profound. Not only will we bring the client to the ISE, but the school emphasizes the importance of the ISR (initial sensitizing relationship). This training shows us that all issues stem from a relationship, or even more so a separation from oneness. It is the human instinct to seek recognition, acceptance, and love from others. As a hypnotherapist, truly understanding this concept is like having a golden key to ones problems. This knowledge allows us to resolve our clients' issues on a deeper level.

When I was working on my issues in the school, many problems came up, all seeming to be different. If I would have had sessions with other trained hypnotherapists, they could have regressed me back to many memories of where these could have started. However, because of this new understanding of there being a relationship to the core of an issue, I was able to see that all of my main issues were interconnected in two relationships with my brother and my mom. I have had many memories with both my mom and brother throughout my whole life, so I could say I have many bad memories with them (as well as good). At FIH, we are taught to understand if you heal the relationship to any memory, it can act as a domino effect, knocking down all unpleasant memories with the same relationship that they started with. With this experience of healing, I was able to have forgiveness of the relationship and bring it to a healthy state. I now see new meaning in all of my daily interactions with others. I now give them what I want to be given: a loving co-creative interaction.
