Effective Clearing Is Always Spiritual

By Charles Wm. Skillas, PhD, DD, BCH, CI, FNGH, MCCHt

In 2016, I will have been a Clinical Hypnotherapist for 35 years. I came to this calling after spending many years as a design/administrative engineer and Corp. vice President during the Cold War. I worked on Guided Missiles, Rockets, Antisubmarine Warfare, Electronic Warfare, Submarine Torpedo Defense, Sea Mine Defense and Satellite Navigation for Submarine Launched Ballistic Missiles. So, why did I become a clinical hypnotherapist? I did so because I was sick and I couldn't find relief in allopathic medicine or in psychiatry or clinical psychology. I did succeed in becoming addicted to all the drugs I was taking and went into hospitals several times to get detoxed. But, I remained sick. I had to find some other method of healing or I was going to die.

In my studies I often read that the basis for all illness was in the mind, specifically in the subconscious mind. I heard that hypnotherapy dealt with the subconscious mind and so I began to study it in the hope that it would save me. I never intended to be a hypnotherapist and work on other people. I was only interested in learning what I needed to know so I wouldn't die. During my studies I was pleased to note that hypnotherapy was very spiritual and so was I. None of the other Western healing modalities that I tried unsuccessfully were based in spirituality, they were based in science and that's where I had just come from, the world of science.

I was fortunate to have some spiritual teachers that taught hypnotherapy as a spiritual subject. This means that they recognized the influence of negative spiritual energies on our health such, as demons, earthbound spirits, Soul Mind fragmentation, past life influences, spiritual carryovers from our biological history, curses and spells and unresolved spiritual conflicts.

Not all students of hypnotherapy had the benefit of spiritual teachers. I soon learned that the majority of hypnotherapists did not deal with spiritual aspects. They focused on energy systems primarily, which only help for a little while and then the problems return. I didn't always have spiritual teachers and I noticed that they stayed away from the spiritual stuff like I mentioned above because they said they didn't believe in it, but I really thought they were simply scared of it. By the time I became a fairly good hypnotherapist, I had learned a lot and began practicing on family members and friends and found they benefited greatly from the work I did. Many of these clients had seen Western non-spiritual Therapists without success, so they were glad I could help them. I resolved then, that if I ever became a practicing hypnotherapist, I would be a spiritual one and that's what I did.

I liked working on people making them feel better more than being an engineer and company vice president, so I became a full-time certified hypnotherapist with the national Guild of Hypnotists (NGH) and a NGH Board Certified Hypnotherapist (BCH). I also became a fellow of the NGH (FNGH) and a certified hypnotherapy instructor (CI. I also became a Master Certified Clinical Hypnotherapist with the National Board of Hypnotherapy and Hypnotic Anesthesiology (MCCHt).

As a Certified Instructor, I always taught my students the spiritual perspective. My students learned about demons, earthbound spirits and all of the other creepy spiritual negative energies, which harm people. I am proud to say that Dr. John Henderson of the interspace was in my first class and he learned all about the scary things as did all my students and Dr. John went on to become a certified instructor and teach the scary things to his students. Getting scared is better than staying sick.

I owe my becoming an NGH hypnotherapy instructor to Sherry Henderson. I thought that my technical background would never allow me to be an instructor and besides you had to live in expensive Manhattan for10 days, expensively eat out and incur the expense of travel, but Sherry said my background would be an asset. Her supporting my becoming an instructor is what gave me the incentive to become one. I will always be grateful to her.
