Welcome to the Ultra Depth Process a system which goes far beyond traditional methods in the exploration of consciousness and awareness through the use of specific hypnotic techniques. Ultra Depth was first discovered in the mid 1960's by Walter A. Sichort, Sr. and later advanced by James Ramey. Traditional methods ends at the state of somnambulism and relies upon suggestion for results. The Ultra Depth Process is specific technology which includes three more profound depths for incredible results. They are the Esdaile, Sichort and Zed States.  

This process guides an individual at their own pace into the most profound depth of consciousness and awareness, the Sichort State.  In the conditioning of an individual to achieve the Sichort State, the individual must first achieve profound somnambulism and then this is anchored by a keyword or verbal anchor which is later used as an instant induction.  Profound somnambulism is where an individual becomes completely amnesic. Then another keyword anchored to be used to emerge that individual from this or any other level of depth that they are experiencing at that time. 

Then the individual must achieve the
Esdaile State and this must be tested by deep Catatonic responses of the individual's limbs while the muscles remain flaccid and this is anchored in by a different keyword.  The Esdaile State provides general anesthesia instantly without any verbal suggestions what-so-ever. Finally the individual must achieve the Sichort State and this is anchored in with yet a different keyword.  The Sichort State not only provides general anesthesia without verbal suggestion but, the individual's rate of healing is increased six to ten times their normal rate of healing time. This is what I call the, "staging process" which is done very specifically and this is where the individual learns how to use their keywords on their own.

The Ultra Depth Process enables the individual to be able to instantly induce either real local and/or general anesthesia without an operator continuously bombarding the individual with verbal suggestions. Thus, making it possible for the individual to undergo minor or major surgery without the use of any chemical anesthesia and without the chances of anesthesia awareness taking place. This can be achieved by any individual who truly desires to and once fully staged, it is available to that individual for the rest of his or her life.

This remarkable system James worked extensively to make it reproducible, allows an individual to experience such things as rapid self-healing, real anesthesia without suggestion and much more. The techniques work in any language and has already been translated into Korean, German and now is being translated into Arabic. James discovered that the Sichort State is the same hypnotic state that Mr. Edgar Cayce (America's Sleeping Prophet) entered when he did his remarkable medical readings that helped so many individuals where the medical profession had failed. Edgar Cayce was able to achieved this state naturally after being hypnotized and taught self-hypnosis.  Of course back in those days there was no name for this state. James found that any individual who achieves this profound state, can do exactly as Edgar Cayce was able to do and even more. The state that Mr. Cayce reached was never explored any further by anyone until now.  No one understood how Mr. Cayce was able to do what he did.  Everyone just thought he he had a special gift. 

In a sense Edgar Cayce did have a special gift because, he was able to get out of the way of his Subconscious, so his Subconscious could speak verbally and help those in need.  It was Mr. Cayce's own words that told us where and what was speaking that delivered all of those natural ways for individuals to heal.  He was once asked where he felt this knowledge was coming from.  His reply was that it came from his Subconscious because he had no knowledge like this.  It is my belief that most who study him today, still do not understand what he was doing. It wasn't until James read much on Mr. Cayce that he figured out what Mr. Sichort had really discovered.

The Ultra Depth Process begins with somnambulism. However, we go beyond what most do to have the client achieve somnambulism. We go to the most profound level of somnambulism by guiding the client to achieve complete amnesia. It is here that we can be sure that the client can achieve real local anesthesia. I have discovered that the greater degree of amnesia that  can achieve, the greater degree of anesthesia can be achieved. It is in the best interest of the client to be sure that he or she can achieve the most profound amount of self-anesthesia possible. However, we also go beyond somnambulism for the benefit of the client.

In either the Esdaile or Sichort States not only is complete general anesthesia a gift of these states but, suggestions is often not necessary to achieve incredible results.  When an individual is in either one of these states, the individual's Subconscious is no longer hindered by the functioning of the Conscious and can immediately go to work on whatever is needed. The Sichort State however, is best for self-healing for in this state healing is automatically increased six to ten times the individual's normal rate of healing. Suggestion is only necessary for the Conscious and the brain (unconscious). All that Subconscious needs, is just time spent by the individual in these states and their Subconscious can do what must be done.

The Zed State discovered and developed by James enables verbal conversation and interaction with one of the many personalities within an individual's Superconscious. Some may refer to the Superconscious as the "Soul" of a person. This state is only used to achieve the most profound regressions you could ever imagine. It is not like normal regressions where the subject is recalling an experience instead, it enables the actual personality from another time to come forward; open the physical eyes of the present body and exhibit behavior as though they are seeing both the past and present at the same time; speak not only in the language but also the dialect they spoke in that time; move the upper torso of the subject's body and verbally dialogue with the practitioner. 

Yes, I said verbally dialogue with and even see the practitioner. I am not speaking about, "Channeling."  What occurs with this process is much different. In most cases the practitioner appears as a form of light to the past personality. Why I say in most cases is because, if the practitioner and the subject lived before at the same time, it is possible for that past personality to see the practitioner as he or she appeared in that particular life. What we have discovered with the development of this state is just a tip of the iceberg of what is possible with the Ultra Depth Process.

The Ultra Depth Process has shown unlimited potentials and provides us with methods to reach out further than traditional hypnosis has ever gone. Yes, somnambulism is the deepest level of depth that an individual can achieve however, along that same line there are more and more profound effects that can be accomplished. This is what the Ultra Depth Process is all about, achieving these more profound effects to benefit all of mankind. It is like these other effects are doors and to open these doors you must work to find the key for each. This is the process that James teaches, it works. 

The Ultra Depth Process can be used for any situation that an individual may be experiencing and wants to change. Ultra Depth Process is ideal for physical, mental, emotional or even spiritual situations that may be challenging an individual. It is the individual's own Subconscious who does the work necessary to facilitate the healing, not the practitioner. These states go far beyond the limits of the practice of hypnosis and other traditional modalities. James techniques and methods have been influence by such greats as Sidney Flower, Herbert Flint, Dr. James Braid, Dr. James Esdaile,  Emile Coue, Dr. Milton Erickson, RD Longacre, Walter A. Sichort, Dave Elman and more.
