How much do we truly know about hypnosis? Should hypnotherapy as an industry be getting more recognition as a proven method of healing? Joining us today for an intriguing conversation is the Founder of Journeys to Heal, Kristine Ovsepian. Kristine began her life’s journey in Armenia before her parents immigrated to America with hopes of a better life for her and her brother. She tells us about how she stumbled upon hypnotherapy, why she chose to follow her heart and ignore the doubts of her loved ones, and why she probably wouldn’t be working in this field if she was living in her home country. We are then left enthralled as our guest walks us through the misunderstood industry of hypnotherapy, the many different types of hypnosis, how her practice differs from stage hypnosis, and how all we need to do to heal is unlock the true power hidden within ourselves. The greatest war we fight is the one against our own minds, and Kristine explains how fear and a lack of self-love are the root causes of almost all our misgivings. We end the discussion by exploring the correlation between spirituality, religion, and hypnotherapy, and how past-life regression therapy ties into Christianity. We barely scratched the surface in this conversation, and there will definitely be a part two, so be sure to sign up for our newsletter to guarantee your early access!
