March 14, 2011 a 16 year old client and her mother came to see me. The client had experienced over 300 seizures in the two years prior to seeing me. She lost consciousness on many of the events. She was referred to me by a pediatrician that has referred several individuals with unusual symptoms and /or diagnosis to me. The client had been seen by several doctors including a neurologist, a gastro-intestinal doctor, a heart doctor and two different chiropractic neurologists. Her seizures had been measured and documented, but no cause had been identified.
My observations and the client history intake indicated an intelligent, motivated client and a very concerned mother. My client was an exceptional student with a goal of becoming a large animal veterinarian. She had low energy and slept a lot including naps of up to five hours. She has her driver’s license, but cannot drive until she demonstrated 6 weeks without a seizure. I saw her threes time in the first week. She was able to go into somnambulism easily. I offered inner physician work, deep relaxation, forward pacing to being able to drive and becoming a successful vet. She felt some relief after each session.
She shared that during each seizure just before losing consciousness she would see “yellow.” I began to think about past lives or near death experience. I put out a request for help on the IMDHA listserv. I got several meaningful offers of assistance. Among these was an offer to discuss the situation on the telephone with Fr. Marty Patton. Fr. Marty asked if there had been a death in the family near to time of the first seizure. When I told him that my client’s maternal grandfather had passed about two months before the first seizure, Fr. Marty responded, “It’s always the grandfather! They don’t think their granddaughter is able to get along without them and they won’t let go.” Fr. Marty also outlined a script for encouraging grandpa to let go and meet his brother on the other side.
On my last meeting with my client and her mother (family members are devote Catholics.), I shared the fact that I had been given some guidance by a priest who was also a hypnotist and a much honored member of IMDHA. Before I mentioned any details, my client said to her mother, “It’s paw paw isn’t it?” Mother smiled and held her hand. I continued to explain the advice I had received and when I finished I asked my client if she wanted her mother to stay for the work. My client asked mother to wait in the reception area.
My client easily went into trance. She guided grandpa to the pearly gates where his brother was waiting for him. She said goodbye and assured grandpa the she loved him and that he had been the best grandpa, but it was now time for him to join his brother and for her to go forward on her own. She waived goodbye and watched while grandpa greeted his brother and the two
brothers went off together. I helped her forward pace through high school, driving herself and then off to college and veterinarian school and finally practicing as a vet.
It is now more than six months since our final session. My client is seizure free, happy, energized and enthusiastic about her life.
One more reason I so enjoy bring a hypnotist and grateful to be a member of IMDHA.
A little additional information, I recommended a reiki treatment for my client, the reiki practitioner observed that my client had very shallow breathing. With very little instruction, my client was able to deepen her breathing. This has dramatically increased her energy, her complexion and her feeling about herself.
