I lost my mother in 2003 and ever since then I had felt as if there was this big black hole inside where my heart used to reside. I went through life and had the usual ups and downs along with moments of happiness and even sadness but throughout it all I missed my mother. I wished I could share my joy with her. I got married and had a very successful career. But there was a sense of sadness along with every experience. I tried very hard to let go and not think of her too much. But it wasn’t working. I heard hypnotherapy helps you with such things. So I readily agreed when Pooja offered me the chance to be a test subject. I approached the session with some trepidation after hearing all the stories in the media about hypnotherapy. But it was nothing like what was described. I had full control over my thoughts and access to my inner being. The most fascinating aspect of it was the ability to recall in great detail conversations and long forgotten incidents as if they were happening in real time in my minds eye. It was a kaleidoscope of emotions and colours with a vivid movie playing in the background of my mind. I could recall smells and even tastes in great detail. The best part was my ability to let go of the parts of the movie that I didn’t like and replace it with happy and joyful harmony. I was able to enjoy the memories I had with my mother once again and also let go. She will forever live in my heart and my most cherished memories but I understood that continuously being sorry about things I couldn’t have was not the way forward. I was able let go of the need to hang on and make my peace with her loss. Now when I think of her it is with love and gratitude for the happy memories I shared with her. What a wonderful experience. Throughout the process I was able to trust Pooja and allow her to guide me and ground me. I think the depth of understanding shown by the practitioner and the ability to trust without reservations is key to a successful session. Pooja had it all.
