The subconscious mind controls our emotions,
our self-esteem, our beliefs, our immune systems, and our bodies. It
is filled with awesome mysteries and un-guessed powers. Hypnosis is the
primary method used to contact the subconscious mind.
The level of trance used by the Alchemical
Hypnotherapist is an 'Alert Trance', in which the client
maintains full conscious awareness and control, while in touch with
subconscious memories, emotions, and resources.
Alchemy has traditionally been associated
with the transmutation of base metals into gold. The ancient Alchemists
made clear in their writings that the substance of their transmutation
was the human soul. Their goal was the transmutation of the base metals
of human emotions and instincts within the subconscious mind into the
gold of self-realization. According to Carl Jung, the first modern alchemist,
the vehicles of this trans-formative process were the archetypes, the
Thus Alchemy can be defined as the spiritual
discipline of working with Inner Guides. These powerful and autonomous
beings live within the subconsciousness mind and can guide us effectively
to health, happiness, relationships, prosperity, and most important,
the fulfillment of our spiritual purpose! These Guides can be accessed
through the hypnotic state.
Alchemical Hypnotherapy is a therapeutic
process designed to assist the client in working with their Inner Guides
to change their lives. Alchemical Hypnotherapy synthesizes techniques
from many modern schools of Trans-personal Hypnotherapy and Psychology.
It includes Gestalt, Regression Therapy, Nero-Linguistic Programming
(NLP), Psycho-synthesis and Shamanism with the ancient science of Alchemy
as translated and channeled to the modern world by Dr. Carl Jung.
Specifically, Alchemical Hypnotherapy,
as developed by David Quigley, includes all of the following processes:
- The rescue of the inner child from
the trauma, neglect, and emotional pain of the past.
- Providing the inner child with new
loving parents and the experiences of a nurturing childhood. We create
with you a loving inner world in which someone is always there to
hear and respond to your needs.
- Strategies for contacting, testing,
and working with the Inner Guides (archetypes) through trance, movement,
and shamanic practices.
- Contacting past-life memories within
the collective unconscious to access creative abilities, resolve trauma,
change karma, and alter contracts with significant others.
- Integration of sub-personalities (different
voices within ourselves) to resolve conflicting desires and goals.
This leads to the unification of the will and the achievement of dreams.
- Alchemical Hypnotherapy uses movement,
psychodrama, emotional release, touch, breath, and sound to achieve
integration at the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual levels.
The technology of Alchemical Hypnotherapy has been applied very successfully
to all of these issues:
- Addiction recovery--our work is especially
compatible with 12-step programs
- Healing survivors of childhood abuse
- Weight management, including compulsive
- Smoking cessation
- Healing the underlying causes of physical
illness (in conjunction with medical treatment)
- Stress management
- Enhancing creative potential and achieving
- Solving the problems of co-dependence
- Help with decision-making and development
of motivation and career success
