This is the first article I have written that focuses solely on my own healing and well being and specifically my own mental and physical health. I hope it provides a way for you to understand and be healed by the information I have shared so far.
As many of you know, I am an A.A.D.E. (Advanced Active Date Expert). I have a degree in A.A.D.E. and have also studied hypnosis and related techniques for years. I have been working with myself for many years and have seen amazing and miraculous changes in my life. I had a rough summer and a tough winter, and my body is in better shape.
I have worked with many clients who are struggling with their mental health. The fact that we were able to overcome the majority of their problems, was the result of the combined effort of a team of professionals. For some, this may be due to the fact that they have a better understanding of what they are dealing with. As you know, there are many types of therapy, including A.A.D.E. and hypnosis.
I would like to add a little note about the use of hypnosis. There are many different types of hypnosis, including the “I AM!” type, and some practitioners (like myself) use it as an aid for self-awareness. Just because someone is having a bad day doesn’t mean they are doing bad things. It just means they are human and they are not the whole picture.
I know that many of you might be thinking that I am exaggerating. You are right, there are some therapists who like to use hypnosis as an aid for self-awareness. But the fact is that a lot of the people with I.A.D.E. or hypnotherapies are often not aware they are using the I.A.D.E. or hypnotherapies at all.
I should explain that I am talking about the I.A.D.E. because I am not the one that is talking, but the people that are using the I.A.D.E.
The I.A.D.E. is a highly specific type of hypnosis therapy. This type of therapy is called “in-the-moment-awareness.” In this type of therapy, the patient (or client) would have to fully realize the situation they are in, how they are feeling and reacting. With I.A.D.E.
In many cases that realization may come from a third party, often some person not involved in the therapy itself. That person may be a friend, a family member, a professional, or a therapist. The point is the client has to become fully aware of what is going on, who is doing the “doing”, and what everyone else is thinking.
Marty Schottenheimer is a very interesting case in this regard. A young man who suffered a brain injury that left him unable to distinguish between reality and fantasy. He was able to learn to “hear” people and see through their eyes, but he never could learn to “see” through their eyes. The result was a very limited ability to understand the world around him. He would have trouble following a conversation between two people.
Marty’s life is one of constant struggle. He is a very intelligent person, but his brain injury leaves him unable to process information. He also has trouble identifying reality and fantasy. For instance, if you tell him that he’s in the hospital and they are taking away his wheelchair, he goes “WHAT?!?!?!” and thinks it’s his own imagination.
