The most important way to prepare for a session is to intend, from the very moment you have decided to schedule an appointment, to have clear and direct communication with that part of you that is able to provide healing and information. Let’s call that part of you, your Higher Self.
“I have clear and direct communication with my Higher Self”
Note the tense of this sentence. It’s not “I will have”, its “I have.”
You can then repeat this intention either silently or out loud throughout your day and most importantly, right before you go to sleep at night. Put a “post it note” on your bathroom mirror to remind you and you can focus upon your intention as you brush your teeth and prepare for bed.
You will want to prepare a list of questions and concerns. As your facilitator I ask that you actually write this list down on paper and hand it to me at our appointment. Please neatly hand write the list or print it out on the computer so that I might easily read your questions during the session. Also put these questions and concerns in order of importance to you as we may not be able to address them all. I have had many clients bring a single question or issue of concern to the session, and some who bring dozens. It really does not matter how many you come up with, only that you put them in order of importance.
What kind of questions? The general rule is to ask personal questions or keep topics related to your personal life. Here are a few examples.
- I have had athsma since birth. Why? Can it be healed?
- I am in a new love relationship. Is this person the right one for me?
- I really dislike my job and would like to quit and find a new one. Should I?
- I have a difficult relationship with my sister. Why is this so and can it be resolved?
- Many years ago I had something strange happen to me. (This could be a dream, vision, feeling, or experience) What exactly happened, and why?
- I have a lifelong interest in (name ANY subject) can we explore this in depth?
- Am I on my right spiritual path?
- Can I meet my spirit guide or guardian angel?
- Can I improve my intuitive or psychic skills? How?
- How can I create more peace or balance or abundance in my life?
As your facilitator I have my own prepared list of “standard” questions I can ask if you are focused upon only one or two issues, so don’t worry if you have a short list. Also know that I keep your written list for my files, so make an extra copy if necessary.
Don’t drink alcoholic or caffeinated beverages before the session, or even, the evening before, if possible. If you are a regular morning coffee drinker, please don’t skip your coffee, but go easy and keep it to a minimum before your session.
Light exercise prior to your appointment, like a long walk, is an excellent way to prepare for a successful session. This is another good time to repeat your intention. We want your body relaxed, but your mind quiet and alert and engaged.
As much as possible, clear your day for the session. We begin by talking, going over the process and your questions. Then you get comfortable and relaxed and we begin the actual hypnotic regression. Afterwards, we go over what was experienced and I make sure you are awake and grounded. This entire process can take anywhere from 3 to 5 hours total, and occasionally even a little bit longer.
It is generally not a good idea to have additional appointments after your regression, or plan a long drive ahead of you (unless you are in the passenger seat). Having a regression is very much like participating in a long, very detailed and involved daydream. You really will feel as if you have just returned from an amazing journey, having visited other worlds and lifetimes, and in fact, you will have done just exactly that. It is best to have some time to process your experience and give yourself an opportunity to fully return to your regular conscious day-to-day reality before attempting any complex mental tasks or strenuous physical activity.
After you leave I will review your digital recording and make adjustments to the sound file if necessary before sending the MP3 file to your selected email address. Please download your file as soon as you receive the link and make a back up copy.
Listening to your session in the days and weeks and even months ahead is an important part of the experience of a Cannon Method Regression. Even if your conscious mind remembers the session immediately afterwards, it can, just as some dreams can, begin to fade from your memory, even if you had an “unforgettable” experience! Also any healing or life improvement suggestions can and will be reinforced by listening repeatedly to the audio. The goal is to have your conscious mind “get on board” and align with your Higher Self and its goals, and accept any changes or healing you intend to occur.
Finally, remember that I am always interested in hearing from you in the future and encourage you to drop me a note or give me a call and let me know how the regression has affected your life.
