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.
