Some Common Question That Are Asked
Can anyone achieve an altered state of consciousness?
Yes. Anyone can achieve altered states of consciousness as long as they want to. The facilitator cannot force you to go into an altered state against your will.
Will I know what is happening?
Yes. If anything, you can become more aware of what is happening. Although your eyes are closed, your other senses can be heightened.
Will I remember what happened?
Yes and no. You will remember some things, but not everything. This is the way our memory works normally. For example, during a speech, you may start off listening to the speaker, but you won't remember everything that has been said. Some scientists say we only retain about 30 percent of what we hear unless we take written notes to aid our memory.
Will I lose control?
No. You remain in control at all times. The practitioner does not have control over you and if you decide to get up and walk out of the session, then you will.
What happens if the facilitator has a heart attack?
Should this unlikely event occur, you will open your eyes and act as you would do if this had happened at any other time.
Is this dangerous?
No. You are perfectly safe as achieving altered states of consciousness and awareness is a naturally occurring process anyway and with the Ultra Depth® Process you are able to achieve even more profound states than with traditional methods.
What is being in an altered state of consciousness and awareness like?
It is quite an ordinary experience. You have already experienced what it is like in your everyday activities. Daydreaming is an altered state of consciousness. When you are reading a book on a train and are oblivious to other noises and passengers, you are in hypnosis. We experience altered states of consciousness and awareness throughout the day, whether we are aware of it or not.
Will I be forced to accept suggestions?
No. Your Subconscious is very protective of you and will not allow you to accept any suggestions that go against your morals or beliefs. A professional facilitator is not going to make suggestions you are unlikely to accept.
So what is an altered state of consciousness?
An altered state of consciousness is that time when we may be working at the office but our mind is elsewhere. Often when colleagues or friends see you like this they will say, "Hey, snap out of it; you look like you're in a trance!" Now, although this is a saying which we use without necessarily thinking about it, the phrase 'in a trance' is actually not accurate. You have been in an altered state of consciousness and have been perfectly safe, and when you decided to return from your daydreaming, you did.
How many sessions will I need?
This all depends on the problem or change that you want to make. Clients who wish to stop smoking undergo about three sessions, with each one lasting around 90 minutes. For anything else, clients could have as many as 10 sessions. The practitioner can see two different people for the same situation. One person might require two sessions and the other might need twice as many. The reason for this is that we are all unique and react differently.
So how can being in an altered state of consciousness help resolve a problem?
When we are in an altered state of consciousness, we are more relaxed, physically and mentally. When this occurs our mind operates more efficiently and effectively. An example of this is when you try to remember someone’s name. It is on the tip of your tongue but you just can't get to it. After you stop trying and forget about it for a few minutes, the name comes back to you. The difference here is that you were putting your mind under tension trying to force it to remember; however, when you stopped and thought of something else, you allowed your mind to relax and the name came to you. When the mind and body are relaxed, we have better access to our memories. We are a product of our memories and past experiences. Sometimes, in order to move forward in life, we need to return to a memory in order to resolve a situation and obtain peace of mind.
How long does a session last?
Usually it can be for one and one-half to two hours. Sessions will vary from person to person. Usually it is from 45 minutes to two-hours.
How often will I need to see the practitioner?
This depends on the type of problem and on the progress made. If you require two or three sessions, the practitioner will normally see you once a week. Sometimes, however, sessions could be once every two weeks or even once a month, depending on the individual's circumstances.
How can I find out more before committing myself?
You may telephone Ultra Depth® International and receive a free, 15-minute telephone consultation about your situation to find out if Ultra Depth® is indicated or contraindicated with your particular situation. This gives you an opportunity to ask further questions. The practitioner can also learn more about your circumstance to see if this type of therapy is right for you.
You are under no obligation to proceed with an appointment. In order to help you come to a more informed decision, the consultation is free. Simply call 828-348-4253 and relax.
