Spirit Bear Hypnosis Session
Therapist: Welcome. Let’s help you find some pain relief from your headaches. Begin by settling into a comfortable space where you can relax, shifting around until your body is totally sculpted into the couch, muscles softening with every breath you take.
As you close your eyes, take a deep relaxing breath. Imagine the delightful scent of balsam pine wafting up, immersing you in the feeling of a moment in nature, peaceful relaxation saturating your body, breathing in deeply, its rich and satisfying aroma. With every breath notice how easy it is to fall into a deeper and deeper state of relaxation.
Allow your inner gaze to move upward to the space between your eyebrows, your inner center of light. As if on a movie screen, watch yourself take up a wooden staff, gently stirring a bubbling pot of golden healing elixir, stirring around, around, around, infusing this staff with golden healing energy.
Taking up your staff now, notice a magical pathway winding up a nearby hill. Pointing your golden staff ahead, lightening your path, swirl it around in circles, spirals of golden sparks flying out in all angles in front of you, like fireflies in the shadows of the woods, brighter and lighter the path becomes before you, for you have all the power to create your new path now.
Knowing you are safe and protected by your magic staff, delve deeper into the forest, stumbling upon a charming garden of peace. Look around and notice the sun is shining on your favorite flowers, in brilliant reds, pinks, greens, purples, oranges, and yellows. You are completely at peace as you notice a comfortable space in which to lie down and take an undisturbed nap. Easily, you fall into a dream.
Now that you are totally relaxed and at ease, bring your awareness into your head. Imagine your head as an inner room. Take your staff of light with you and enter the room. Look around and tell me whatever you are noticing now.
Me: Well, this is pretty strange, but there’s a bear in a cave in my head.
Therapist: Interesting. Ask this bear if it has a message for you?
Me: Hmmm, so bear, do you have something you want me to know? He says he’s here to help me remember to meditate every day, even if it’s only for a few minutes. This will help me quiet my racing mind and I won’t have as many headaches.
Therapist: Great, is this something you can agree to?
Me: Sure, a few minutes a day is easy.
Therapist: Ask the bear if he has any other messages for you?
Me: So bear, is there anything else I can learn from you? This bear thinks this is pretty funny. He says he has loads to share with me if I’ll just slow down to listen. He says he’s a guide for me to work with and will always be here for me.
Therapist: That’s great. Does he have a name?
Me: It’s Spirit Bear.
Therapist: Ask Spirit Bear how to contact him so he can share his wisdom.
Me: How can I connect with you? (Pause) He says it’s best in the morning before my day has started. I can call his name and he’ll be there to answer my questions. I just have to listen. He says this is good training for me, to learn to relax and look inside for answers. He also wants me to make sure I meditate every day.
Therapist: Okay, thank Spirit Bear for helping you and let him know you agree to meet with him each day and meditate afterwards.
Me: Thanks Spirit Bear. I appreciate you helping me with these headaches. I agree to listen to your wisdom and meditate every day.
Therapist: In a moment I’ll bring you back up to waking reality. Always remember you can easily call upon Spirit Bear and meet with him whenever you want. I’ll count from one to five and when I reach the count of five you’ll awaken feeling alert, refreshed, even better than before. One, two, three, four, five. Alert and refreshed. Open your eyes when you’re ready. Great work!
