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 and later advanced by James Ramey. Traditional methods end at the state of Somnambulism and rely upon suggestions for results. The Ultra Depth®Process is specific technology which includes three more profound depths for incredible results. They are the Esdaile State, Sichort State and Zed States. This process guides an individual at their own pace into the most profound depths of consciousness and awareness, the Sichort State.
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 the individual 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.
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. His readings helped so many individuals where the medical profession had failed. Edgar Cayce was able to achieve 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 had a special gift. In a sense Edgar Cayce did have a special gift; he was able to get out of the way of his Subconscious. In doing 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 was James’ 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.
In the conditioning of an individual to achieve the Sichort State, the individual must first achieve profound Somnambulism and this is then anchored by a keyword or verbal anchor which is later used as an instant induction. Profound Somnambulism is where an individual becomes completely amnesic. It is in this state that another keyword is anchored and used to emerge that individual from this or any other level of depth that they are experiencing at that time. Next the individual must achieve the Esdaile State. This is tested by deep Catatonic responses of the individual's limbs while the muscles remain flaccid. This state is then anchored with a new keyword which brings the individual back to the Esdaile State. 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 a fourth 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. The process of achieving these levels and setting the keyword is what is called staging. The client is then taught how to use these 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. This makes it possible for the individual to undergo minor or major surgery without the use of any chemical anesthesia and without the chance 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.
In both the Esdaile and Sichort States, not only is complete general anesthesia a gift of these states but, suggestions are 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 typical regressions where the subject is recalling an experience in a dreamlike way. It enables the actual personality from another life to come forward and take part in the present. It is as though they are seeing the past and the present at the same time. They have the ability to use the physical body in ways such as seeing with the physical eyes, moving the upper torso and speaking in the language and dialect they spoke in the past life. What occurs with this process is much different than what some may term channeling. In most cases the practitioner appears as a form of light to the past personality. Why we 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 potential 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.
The Ultra Depth®Process can be used for any situation that an individual may be experiencing and wants to change. The 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 influenced 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. James worked extensively to make this process reproducible under any circumstances. The techniques work in any language, have already been translated into Korean and German and are currently being translated into Arabic.
