Deeper Perception Made Practical

A New NGH-Certified Hypnosis Instructor, Rose Rosetree

Rose Rosetree, NGH-Certified Hypnosis Trainer, ready to celebrate

Yes, Georgina Cannon’s “Train the Trainer” workshop was a success. After five days of insight and skill download, I have emerged with the credentials to teach hypnosis as certified by the National Guild of Hypnotists.

Loads of hypnotists, hypnotherapists, and non-hypnosis professionals teach hypnosis, actually. The more precise part of this shiny new credential is that I will be teaching a method that is the gold standard within the hypnosis profession, certification with the National Guild of Hypnotists.

Other NGH-certified hypnosis instructors are located in the metro Washington, D.C. area. I know of Kay Walkinshaw, Connie Hambrock, and Jason Linett, for instance.

Mostly today’s post is a lighthearted and irreverent one of celebration. But here comes the seriously practical part about why I went to the trouble to become one more hypnotism teacher in Northern Virginia.

Why I became certified with NGH to teach hypnosis

Many of you Blog-Buddies know that I have published a hypnosis CD that helps people to feel happier, Your Happiness Project.

My real passion in the hypnosis field is a particular form of past-life regression, Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis(TM). For years I have been preparing to teach this method; for the past year I have been working on a manual for my regression therapy students.

What is common to every form of past-life regression, regression therapy, age regression, regression hypnosis, regression hypnotherapy, etc.? Not much, actually. 😉

Okay, one thing connects all the wildly disparate methods one might find while searching for help related to personal healing, growth and development.

Hint: Every one of these would be a professional method that takes you back into your past to help you to find a better future. So what would help you to do that?


Facilitating the client’s hypnotic trance, at depth, is the prerequisite for additional skill sets of regression work.

So I decided to get the gold standard, NGH credential in order to teach that prerequisite, hypnosis. I will teach NGH-certified Hypnosis Training as Part One. A stand-alone Part One.

Afterwards, for Brave Explorers who yearn for Part Two, it will be appropriate and productive to teach Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis.

This part of my teaching schedule for 2014 is not yet worked out. Otherwise, tentative dates are in place for the rest of the Rose Rosetree workshops in 2014.

Oh, is this hypnosis and then regression hypnosis training ever going to be helpful for some of you Blog-Buddies. It will be a separate track from the Mentoring Program in Rosetree Energy Spirituality. You can expect many details to emerge, Blog-Buddies. And, of course, this blog will be where to find the breaking, very best news about it all.

That said, let’s get on to the funny.

Lighthearted experiences, studying in Toronto, Canada

Serious intent, rigorous training, leadership in the rapidly growing field of hypnosis, and refined professionalism — that is why I came all the way to Canada for Georgina Cannon’s NGH “Train the Trainers.” Based on what I knew of her work, I felt that Georgina would be the best fit for me, among instructors available.

Our class of three aspiring hypnosis teachers met in Georgina’s gorgeous apartment in a tony part of Toronto, right off Yonge Street. My bed and breakfast was an establishment located some 40 minutes down Yonge Street, and that’s where the humor comes in. (Or humour, given that this is Canada, after all.)

One of Georgina’s dearest ambitions is to bring hypnosis to street kids.

Well, I was dwelling in the land of street kids, street adults. The neighborhood around Gloucester Street was safe enough, but colorful. Colorful in ways familiar to this native New Yorker.)Over in Georgina’s ‘hood, shops have names like “The Best Delicacies.” (And I can indeed vouch for some of those cookies.)

By contrast, here are the names of places in my part of town, while revelling in my exalted role as student:

8th Deadly Sin

“Neighborhood food and drink,” it said on the sign beneath the illustrious name of this restaurant.

Diner’s Corner

This local hotspot was just a couple blocks down from my hotel. Note: It is not located on a corner.

West-Indian Canadian Chinese Dishes

Sophisticated diners, you may travel far and wide, up or down, but how often do you have a chance to order off the back of the menu in such an establishment?

Cash Money, Open 24/7

That hourly availability matters a lot in the neighborhood where I lived. Just to make sure that enough money was available, as needed, three other such stores were located within two convenient blocks.

House of Lords

A bar, of course. What, you were thinking government?

In the past I had heard the expression “Drunk as a lord” but I never knew where folks got that way.

The Cannabis Superstore

Three whole floors will provide all the dope-smoking accessories one might need. Apparently.

Just in case not? You could go to one of the other similar stores in the neighborhood.

Sol-Exotica Tanning

Clearly this is THE way to catch rays in Toronto.

Although I have never sought out a tanning bed, I would so hate to have it be the boring hundrum experience. That combo of “Sol” and “Exotica” really appeals to my science fictioney, Walter Mitty-like imagination. And speaking of fabulous signage.

Extra-Intimate Lap Dances

There’s a consumer concept!

Finally, my personal favorite, right next door to the 24/7 money emporium…

Select Your Pain

Beneath this, additional signage proclaims:

    I had the pleasure of experiencing my first Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis past-life egression with Rose while she was in Toronto. It was also great to meet her in person for the first time!
    (By the way Rose, the B & B you stayed at was right smack in the middle of a huge gay village in Toronto and that is why it was so colourful!)

    I felt very safe in the session and even though my intention was around something physical, what surfaced was totally related to a current theme I was playing out in relation to my career. So the connection between the two was not surprising, so much as fascinating. Now a little more than a week later, friends are saying I sound terrific and feel lighter. I am taking up more space inside myself. So when I need to deal with challenging situations or people, I don’t disappear as much anymore either into their emotional states or my own. I can stay more ‘me’, which is a wonderful gift as an emotional and molecular empath. I would highly recommend a Soul Energy Awakening Hypnosis past-life regression with Rose.

    MIRANDA, thank you for spreading the word. That was my first hypnosis and past-life regression session in Canada. At least, when the session took place in Canada, rather than having the client come here to America.

    It was also my first session when I officially had become an NGH-Certified Hypnosis Instructor. (Although I had been certified previously as a consulting hypnotist and also a practitioner of past-life regression therapy.)

    Hilarious to learn about the neighborhood of Victoria’s Mansion B&B being in a huge gay village. MIRANDA, I just thought that was Canada.

    Being very strongly a progressive in my political leanings, I love to walk down the street and see gay and lesbian couples.

    Walking around the neighborhood during my five days in Toronto, my gaydar did go off many times.

    Two examples in particular stood out.

    A woman on rollerblades with a very wildly punk hairdo was rolling around my street, yelling at the top of her lungs (to nobody in particular, far as I could tell), “I’m drunk and I’m a lesbian.”

    She was in her early 20’s. I definitely believed her about the drunk part.

    The other distinctive encounter was seeing the most adorable couple walking down the street, holding hands. Two really, really macho-looking guys.

    Everybody on the street seemed to take them in stride, and I thought, “How wonderful Canadians are! How evolved!”

    I still think that, BTW.

    MURDOCH, finally got the spelling of Yonge Street corrected in this article. Sorry I was “Wronge” about Yonge.

    Thanks to you for supportive commenting, along with my thanks to DAVID, MELANIE, JEAN, MERRIT, TEHYA, LINDA STONE, ELAINE, GARY and, again, MIRANDA.

    This was hilarious! I especially liked the part about the lesbian yelling, “I’m drunk and I’m a lesbian!” No closets here in Toronto, it would seem 🙂 That’s why Rubbermaid storage stores are doing so well…!
