Unconscious Healing Modalities


“Ask the Professional” – an interview of Roxanne Louise by the International Association of Counselors and Therapists, April 2019. 

I am the April featured hypnotherapist in the e zine published by IACT  on the topic of Unconscious Healing Modalities. Basically an unconscious healing modality is a therapeutic intervention that resolves an issue and solves a problem below the level of conscious awareness. You give clear instructions to your unconscious mind as to what you want it to do, get an acknowledgement that your unconscious can do it and is willing to do it right then and there. Then you sit back and then let your unconscious make the perfectly tailored and appropriate corrections and let you know when it is done. 

Major shifts can occur. For example, a person can let go any need or purpose to do _X_ anymore. Or release a negative repeating pattern, secondary gain, and all kinds of emotional stuck points. It can resolve whatever set up an illness or health condition or blocks them from healing. As a result, problems, negative patterns and issues that have defied resolution can drop away.

fullsizeoutput_2cThe Infinite Intelligence Process that I teach is a simple way of working with the unconscious to resolve problems and relieve stress with or without professional assistance. It can be brought into a formal hypnosis session. But it can also be done easily and adaptably by the client himself as self-hypnosis, meditation, or even just with eyes open and awake as a command. The full procedure is explained in my book Accessing More

Unconscious Healing Modalities with Roxanne Louise

IACT: Hello Roxanne. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to learn more about unconscious healing modalities. But first, we’d like to learn more about your experience and background and how you came to find your passion for this work.

RL: My interest in unconscious healing modalities started with hypnosis training with E. Arthur Winkler and A.L. Ward starting in 1990 or 1991. I had already had hypnosis training in straight suggestion work, age regression, past life regression starting in 1989. Then I learned NLP including Time Line Therapy, an NLP technique from Tad James. Much later I studied with James Ramey, a protégé of Walter Sichort, whose problem solving method beyond the induction itself was very similar to A.L. Ward.

I grabbed onto unconscious healing modalities because I had issues with other techniques.

1. For example, straight suggestion work is predicated on the hypnotist knowing or having a very good idea of what the problem is and how to resolve it. But the hypnotist and the client himself frequently don’t. And while the hypnotist may include a lot of indirect suggestion ala Milton Erickson, which like, I don’t think it is as good as this other method.

2. Age regression and past life regression seem to work best with people with good visual skills, but not all clients have them, and not all hypnotists are skillful in eliciting other sensations quickly enough through the Affect Bridge, a method in which George Bien excels, so that these non-visual clients don’t get frustrated.

Material obtained in regression work, particularly past life regression, is prone to contaminants — other time frames, books, stories, movies, and imagination. The Morey Bernstein’s 1956 book, The Search for Bridey Murphy, is a perfect example.

1. In regression work, the unconscious mind may censor recovery of memories that it deems too threatening to be revealed. This is not a problem with unconscious healing.

2. Unconscious healing is much more thorough in getting not just one relevant factor, but all factors involved in the targeted issue.

I have also had some problems with a few clients getting too stuck in the story line obtained through regression, and this caused more problems than it solved.

For example, one client relived being a young nobleman who talked everyone in going to war which later resulted in his best friend being killed. Now in this life, the client had tremendous guilt and even less ability to sever a destructive relationship (the reason she had sought my help) than she had before. While more work might have resolved this, she was unwilling to do so.

Another client was hung up on the important role she played in a past life, instead of creating purpose for herself in this lifetime.

IACT: What are your ‘go to’ unconscious healing mdalities?

RL: I do a blending of what I have learned from others already mentioned, and add in my own composite mo- dality which I call The Infinite Intelligence Process. I’ll address the latter separately, and will be presenting a workshop on this at the HypnoExpo on Saturday, May 18 at 4 PM.

What I do with every client both during and immediately after the induction is to clearly establish in their mind that they already have an ‘unconscious competence’ that allows them to resolve their issue “in a way in which they are really pleased” (Winkler). I give them irrefutable examples of this – i.e., being able to digest food without consciously knowing how, healing from cuts and bruises, growing hair and fingernails, etc. And then I say that this unconscious competence is now “clarifying what needs to be clarified, resolving what needs to be resolved, releasing what needs to be released, etc in a way in which they are really pleased” (Winkler). I may repeat this type of patter periodically as I am working with them.

I need a way to track their internal processing. So I usually establish ideomotor response as does Ward, Ramey, Sichort. But many times after making a psychic link with the client (which I always do with every client from the moment I start the session, and I can speak more of this later if you want) I track their progress in hypnosis with me holding a pendulum to know how to pace myself.

Winkler did ‘Arm Rising or Falling’ Techniques. In Arm Falling, you create arm catalepsy and place the arm straight up above their head with the suggestion that “the arm will come down only as quickly as your unconscious mind has found a satisfactory solution that you came here to solve today.” Winkler also did it the opposite way in Arm Rising by suggesting that the arm “is moving up, up, up to the face but will not touch the face until it has found a satisfactory solution”. Then you suggest that the unconscious is immediately putting that solution into the works.

Although I always teach Winkler’s methods, I don’t do them myself as often unless I think the client is tired and may fall asleep. However, one great benefit is that it allows me to see if the client is stuck if the arm doesn’t move, or moves only part way and then stops. Then I can add in other suggestions to assist the client to right then or after the session to get past the blockage. The Arm Falling Technique has an added advantage of a ‘when…, then…”. This is CYA (cover your a..) in that you have said that “when the arm falls back into their lap, then…”.

In a private hypnosis session, Ward would ask for an ideomotor response for each of the following:

  • that the unconscious knows about the issue the client wants to solve [Ward does not specify what that issue is as the unconscious mind might have it’s own agenda for the day],
  • is willing to solve it,
  • is able to find the first event having anything to do with the problem,
  • is able to identify the emotion or judgment related to that event,
    and then it is to go back in time to the first time that they had that same emotion or judgment and “switch to a healthier, more constructive choice, and indicate with a ‘yes’ ideomotor response when they have done that.”
  • He then has them go to the next time and next time right up to now, and signal when they made the switch.
  • When there are no more to change, they are to raise their ‘no’ finger.

I first help to set Ward’s technique up by explaining how two people can have the same experience and one is upset and the other is not. Why is that? I answer that it is because of their interpretation of what has happened, their judgment about it. And I later tell them to “change what you say to yourself and be free”.

While I do Time Line Therapy more in group sessions as opposed to private, what I have adapted from it that I use on myself and with every client is to instruct them to “find the positive learning” that then allows the upset or the issue to fall away. I strongly feel that it is a mistake to try to clear ‘negative’ emotions or upsets without learning from the experience, or otherwise that history will repeat itself.

Some visualizations can work for unconscious healing in a group session. For example, in Chapter 6, Visualizations of my book Your Unlimited Potential, I have adapted A.L. Ward’s technique as ‘Change Decisions’. The adaptation of E. Arthur Winkler’s Arm Rising is called “Hand to Face” . I have my own original “File Cabinet”. “Lining Up the Jennies” was inspired by Larry Tillman’s Conceptual Therapy Technique, “Line of Time” is adapted from Time Line Therapy, and “Library” although original to me is almost identical to that by Albert J. Marotta.

IACT: What else can you tell us about the use of unconscious healing modalities?

RL: An unconscious healing modality is especially called for when while you have a problem or issue that you want solved, but you do not know the best solution or best means of getting there. Therefore, you leave it up to the unconscious wisdom within to tailor make the perfect solution for you.

I believe this internal wisdom is hooked up to the spiritual dimension, or what Physicist Tom Campbell calls the Greater Consciousness System in which all consciousness is linked.

An unconscious healing modality can also be adapted as an affirmation.
For example, you can say “There is a part of me that knows ____ [how to reach the goal, or solve the problem] and that part is now ____ (clarifying, healing, resolving, transmuting, clearing) ____ in a way in which I’m really pleased.”

This is

  • setting your intention of what you want to happen,
  • affirming that you have the inner resources, wisdom, and internal guidance system that can set to work for you in the background to smooth your way to manifest that intention
  • turning it over in total trust that the Universe is working for you.

This is the first part of the Infinite Intelligence Processthat I call “Connect”. While the above wording is powerful in hypnosis, self-hypnosis, or meditation, it works even with eyes open while you are doing simple chores. It is fully described in my book, Accessing More, and will be elaborated upon in my workshop at HypnoExpo as already mentioned. A benefit of this is that the client can use it anytime, anyplace to help himself.

You can create a hypnosis program with trigger words to run the unconscious healing program.

In the Infinite Intelligence Process, I have created a program that I call “Process” that is especially designed to quickly review, keep or delete the overwhelming data to which we are all subjected to daily, and to also review everything to do with any issue or problem in order to resolve it. It is superb for stress management and getting to the multitude of factors involved in any sticky situation. Once installed, the client can the program on their own anytime that is appropriate.

Benefits of the Infinite Intelligence Process

As a result of daily using the Infinite Intelligence Process, I sleep better, have much less stress, and get over any stress faster. It is something I can do myself without the dependence upon anyone else.

My agenda is to empower my clients so that they are equipped with tools to help themselves anytime, anyplace on their own. By testing everything on myself, I have immediate feedback on what works, what doesn’t, and what needs tweaking.

IACT: This has been a wonderfully enlightening interview. Once again, thank you for your time and insight. We look forward to learning more over conference week in Daytona Beach.

RL: Thank you for inviting me to do this.

Heal Yourself to Heal Your World

“Before you can help make the world right,

you must be made right within.”        John Miller

earth-global-globe-87651It is very easy to compile a lengthly list of what is wrong in the world. Society has traditionally tried to address those wrongs through a top down approach of rules and regulations, and the legal and judicial system. While a deterrent, such measures cannot stop bad behavior. People will find a way around them. Furthermore, a top down approach makes you dependent upon others to write and execute the laws and enforce them. If those people are themselves corrupt, new laws, new systems, will not change underlying evil and abuses. This can make you feel hopeless and powerless.

“Whatever is right or wrong in our world is exactly what is right or wrong in the individual human heart.” —Margaret Leckie

What if you considered that the world, filled as it is with people just like us, was simply a reflection of our own issues and what was unhealed within ourselves? Is it not then conceivable that in taking the responsibility to heal ourselves of any resonating trait or emotion that such healing would become a ripple in the pond influencing those around us, motivating and enabling them to evolve as well?

This is something that each of us can do—overcome our own issues, inspire, mentor, and teach others how to do it, until it becomes the ‘100th Monkey Effect’. Or to paraphrase Gandhi, we can individually

Be the change, we want to see in the world.

Physicist, Tom Campbell, agrees. He says that simply replacing the leaders or the system, will not result in real, long-term improvement unless the consciousness of the populace changes. One dictator or set of crooks will be replaced by others until the population no longer supports them. Campbell says that

Unless WE change, real, permanent change will not happen. But as we grow and evolve in consciousness, our leaders and systems will reflect that.

Yet, history has also demonstrated that a single individual is not powerless. One person can make a difference. And that person doesn’t have to be a guru, a charismatic leader, or a motivational speaker. Ordinary people such as Rosa Parkes made a difference. There are people out of the limelight quietly doing simple things like planting trees, cleaning up debris, that over time make an impact upon their communities. There are Transcendental Meditators that have significantly reduced the crime rate or political tensions in certain areas. 

Again, Campbell says that the thoughts, emotions, and consciousness of each individual are felt by the whole. As each person evolves, he makes easier for the next to do so.


One man, Clinical Psychologist, Dr Ihaleakala Hew Len had such a profound healing effect upon his patients at the Hawaii State Hospital for the criminally insane that it was closed in just a few years. Previously that ward had been a very dangerous place with high staff absenteeism and turnover.

“After a few months of Dr Hew Len being there, patients who had been shackled started being allowed to walk freely; others who’d been heavily medicated, started getting their medications reduced; and those who had been seen as having no chance of ever being released, were being released and freed.” 

Dr. Len did this solely through the practice of Ho’oponopono. In studying the inmate files, he would work on healing himself by repeating a mantra over and over –

“I’m sorry, Please forgive me, I love you, Thank you.”

In saying his mantra, Dr. Len was taking responsibility for what was showing up in his life, which were his patients. He considered it his creation and therefore, his responsibility do something about although it was not his fault. Taking responsibility means to heal yourself in order to heal whatever or whoever it is that appears to you as a problem. 

Physician, heal thyself!” (ancient Greek proverb)

Ho’oponopono recognizes that we are all part of one consciousness system. Consequently, our actions, reactions, and very our consciousness effect the system even as we are effected by it. 

“No man is an Island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the Continent, a part of the main; if a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friends or of thine own were; any man’s death diminishes me, because I am involved in Mankind; And therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; It tolls for thee.

John Donne, Meditation XVII, English clergyman & poet (1572 – 1631)

Ho’oponopono is related to the principle of Quantum Entanglement. While Quantum Entanglement is a theory from physics that explains the effect that one particle can have on another even though separated by huge distances, the psychological implications are that individuals have a very real effect on one another. Your thoughts and feelings not only guide your action but also effect others. 

The bad news is that my funky mood, anger or resentment, even if never expressed, can have a negative effect, like agitation or depression, upon you, which can cycle back onto me. Therefore, I not only have a responsibility to clean up my mess, but it is in my best interests to do so.

“What goes around, comes around.”

The good news is in healing myself, I not only feel better, but I am setting up a conductive environment for others to heal as well, who in turn help even more people to do the same. These ever enlarging ripples in the pond make a big difference. And all of us reap the benefits!

Whether you agree with Hew Len’s underlying premise, you cannot argue with his results. If one man can be heal the criminally insane, what can each of us do with addressing those issues and wrongdoings that upset us? The caveat is that to make a real dent you have to be relentless about constantly clearing any issue until the situation changes. Len says that it is a lifetime process. Like an onion, things come off in layers.

Former hypnosis colleague Doreen Virtue taught me years ago as a way of healing and releasing blame and negative judgment, 

“I recognize and forgive in myself what irritates me about you!”

Rather than immediately assigning blame of who is wrong and needs to be punished, consider that what you judge may also reflect a quality inside yourself. However, getting angry, irritated, upset or triggered is helpful in revealing your Shadow Self – that part of the psyche that denies and hides away of your own unacceptable thoughts, emotions, and behavioral impulses. explained at length by psychiatrist, Dr. Carl Gustav Jung and author Debbie Ford. 

The ego avoids self loathing by denying the existence of it’s own faults by projecting them onto others. This process of denial and projection tends to attract people who reflect these same faults. In other words, if you deny your anger, angry people show up in your life. It is the soul’s attempt to get you to look at yourself and then heal. As you admit and forgive yourself for your own shortcomings, you will have greater tolerance of others, and instead attract others who have likewise worked on healing their own issues.

What is denied cannot be healed. Therefore, unsavory people, conditions or events in our lives serve a useful purpose in calling us to recognize and heal those resonating elements within ourselves. Instead of condemning your adversary, thank them for bringing your own baggage to your attention to now process.

How you can use your upset to heal?

Identify the trait or issue or behavior that you dislike or upsets you. Look inside honestly to see if you have ever exhibited that trait, acted that way or wanted to, even in a minuscule way, maybe years ago. If so, accept and forgive yourself anyway. This is profoundly healing, and stops the repetition of more of the same type of unpleasant experiences.

And then because you may not know or remember if you are ever did something similar, do the Emotional Freedom Technique on a ‘can’t hurt basis:

“Even though I don’t know if  I have ever ____ (felt/done/wanted to)  ___, I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know if there is anything in me that attracted or contributed to this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know what is within me that resonates with this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

“Even though I don’t know what needs to heal within me that reflects this condition/situation,  I deeply love and accept myself.”

Perhaps in another lifetime you acted in a despicable way, and while you have since matured, you may never have forgiven yourself. Or perhaps, the old data file for that nasty behavior still lingers in the recesses of your being waiting for a trigger to reactivate it. Hence, having a mirror image of your former self may show up in your life to get you to recognize your common humanity and forgive yourself now. Dowse on it.

Dowsing is a phenomenal help in locating root cause of problems.

Dowsing is profoundly powerful, and is the fastest way to identifying issues, the origin, and reasons behind them when utilizing dowsing charts and checklists. It can be used to focus intention to clear mental and emotional issues, and to calibrate completion. And it can identify possible action to take in the physical world. Without dowsing with charts, one can emply age regression, kinesiology or meditation — all of which take much more time.

RESOURCES: You can use dowsing instead of muscle testing with Dr. Bradley Nelson’s book, the Emotion Code. You can dowse with the Infinite Intelligence Process, as outlined in my book, Accessing More—Tapping Into the Wisdom Within With the Infinite Intelligence Process, and you can use the many charts and checklist in my pendulum dowsing manual, Therapeutic Dowsing and Telepathic Healing).
