Isla Viscount, Life Between Lifetimes Training
“As a professional behavioral health consultant and human services Ph.D. student living in the District of Columbia, I get to observe and help treat all kinds of unwanted behavior on a daily basis. So when I realized two years ago that I had symptoms of mild depression – as evidenced by chronic procrastination, excessive television viewing, overeating and insomnia – I decided to seek some kind of help but I didn’t want it to take a long time. I went to a psychiatrist who gave me some pills that helped a little but mainly put a happy end to my three-year relationship with nicotine gum. I had no desire to play “musical meds” with the good doctor so I just kept staying up late, watching TV and stuffing my face instead of doing my homework, going to bed at a reasonable hour and paying bills on time.

On September 20, 2008 I went to my auto repair shop for a scheduled oil change. The owners, Francisco Costa and his wife Monica are two very pleasant, former State Department employees from Brazil who decided to stay in the Washington Metropolitan region and start their own business. As the office manager, Monica is frequently there on Saturday. We always engage in very pleasant conversation on a limitless variety of topics because she is a warm, gregarious, well rounded, instantly likable friend to nearly everyone. This day she was not at the garage so while I waited for Francisco to finish, I mindlessly reached into the magazine rack below my chair for something to read and came up with a surprisingly well-preserved copy of the July 2007 issue of O magazine. I found an article by a woman who traveled all the way from Mexico to Toronto, Canada for a 6-hour session with Hypnotist Debbie Papadakis that resulted in her overcoming a lifetime of debilitating shyness. I was so impressed, because shyness is one of my many limitations, that I decided to check it out for myself.

When I called to make the appointment I was pleasantly surprised that Debbie herself answered the phone. (I didn’t know at the time that she had already left me a voicemail message in response to my online request for information). She asked me if I would fill out a questionnaire she would email to me, and suggested a lovely bed and breakfast within walking distance to her institute as I had no idea where I would stay never having traveled outside of the United States alone before. (My only previous experience was when I took an Amtrak excursion with my family for a long weekend in Montreal in 1999 and last winter vacationed with some friends in Quintana Roo, Mexico). She told me she had experience helping people with the kinds of issues I presented and said she would try to help me. We decided to have two three-hour sessions over the course of two days.

Part of my ability to proceed right away was based on the fact that I had some extra money (for a change), enough PTO from work even though I just started a new job, and a desperate need to tackle a school assignment that should have been finished six months ago. I also thought that finding the treatment useful, I could proceed with taking the hypnosis certification training Debbie conducts because many of my clients, friends and family members are struggling with pain management and other difficult issues. I could hardly believe I was actually following through with this seemingly impulsive, big decision without hesitation, and only twenty-six short days after reading the magazine article I found myself flying out of Reagan National Airport on the morning of Thursday, October sixteenth.

As my plane approached Toronto Pearson International airport, it was still dark and I was amused to see the endless ribbons of light made by auto headlamps in rush hour traffic. It was a cool, partly cloudy day but dry. I felt as if I hadn’t left D.C. at all. After a short period of processing with Customs, I caught a taxi to the Inverness High Park B&B which the driver found quickly. I had time for a decent nap before my one o’clock appointment. Elizabeth Leslie, the Inverness proprietor, gave me simple directions to the HHI which was just a ten minute walk away. I grabbed lunch at a hamburger joint a few doors from the institute because I didn’t want anything (like growling stomach) to interfere with the session.

Debbie reviewed the questionnaire that I completed a few days before following the direction to “don’t think about your answers.” We discussed some of my most difficult issues and then she seated me in a very, very comfortable black leather recliner and covered me with a beautiful pashmina-type blanket. As she began to induce me into altered consciousness, I couldn’t help thinking “I’m still thinking whatever I want – she’s not making me think anything different than what I would be if she weren’t telling me to relax, just rela-a-ax.”

Before I knew it, I could hear myself speaking easily to Debbie about things I don’t normally discuss or hadn’t thought about in many years. She was sort of flushing out my problems moment by moment and at the same time giving me affirmations about myself and my life that I knew were true but never saw fit to express until she reminded me I could. When she exhorted me to “send love, pink colored love from your body to others” that was the moment I realized the meaning of power. Gradually, I was able to perceive the essence of people, places and things to which I had little access for a long time, if ever. In this process, I began to realize that my limitations are illusions based on forgetfulness of the nature of personal power. I now know I can draw on my past experiences, relationships, my belief in good, desire to achieve, and a clearer understanding that I am a very valuable person to change my unwanted behaviors.

It’s only been a week and I’ve already gotten to sleep very quickly at night, awakened feeling completely rested, begun reading books I’d put down in favor of television, become more discriminating about my viewership and stopped using television as a couch potato companion, started to take brisk walks in the morning before work and longer walks in the evening, developed more positive self-talk, returned more phone calls both business and personal, stopped eating candy everyday (that’s a miracle in itself) and asked for time off from work to return to Toronto for Debbie’s training next month. I feel confident that, not just some, but all of my most troublesome behavioral deficiencies will self-correct and that I can have and be whatever I reasonably want. I have always wanted to become a healer somewhat like the biblical saints. Now, my prayers have been answered and I can’t wait to go back and learn some of Debbie’s treasured techniques that have already begun to change my life.”**
