There is no denying that writers are curious. I am no exception (except for maybe the writer part – ha!). I want to know how things work, why they work, what makes something tick – I just want to know. But I remain a severe skeptic to the annoyance of many of my closest friends. “TERCA,” me dicen. So when the opportunity to try a session of regressive hypnosis with renown psychologist Ery Cervantes from San Luis Potosi, how could I say “no.”
Regressive healing hypnosis is meant to delve into past lives and address hurts or traumas to better your present life. That’s a little tough when your life is just dandy and you don’t believe in past lives, future lives, just the one and only one I have right now. I met with the local organizer to pay my fee but to also do some mini-exercises and short interview. As usual, I am honest – bluntly honest. He asked what I expected to get out of my session which is scheduled for Saturday and will be videotaped. I start out with the usual “I am curious” and then the more serious, “I am a non-believer who lives in the now as a positive being and wants to do good and have been had the best of childhoods and no traumas or healing from anything and loves to watch people progress and be healthy and life is peachy despite challenges which have all been methodically overcome.” Yep, I respond in run-ons.
I waited to be told I wasn’t the right fit for this kind of session but no, he said I was perfect. Hmmm… I said I expect to be convinced and come back with actual facts and dates and descriptions of places I have never been to. And because of my love for research, I want to find match to tangible facts & dates & real places.
So tonight, I will attend the public presentation of Ms. Cervantes and other topics that focus on past lives. Do I believe? No. But many religions believe in reincarnation or soul entities or karma, so I am attempting to go with an open mind. At the very least, I can say I did it and met some very nice people along the way.
The event for August 13, 2015 is open to the public & is in Spanish but individual hypnosis sessions are by appointment only. Unfortunately, I think she has been booked for some time. Interesting, interesting.
