After watching “Stir of Echoes” starring Kevin Bacon, one of my regular blog readers asked me to look into the connection between hypnosis and psychic abilities. In the movie, Bacon’s character, Tom, becomes psychic after his sister-in-law hypnotizes him. Viewers learn at the end of the movie that Tom had been very intuitive as a child, but built walls between him and his abilities to protect himself.
Noted hypnotherapist Mary Elizabeth Raines, a past life regression specialist, believes hypnosis is one of the best ways to access and deepen your intuition. All you need is a desire to seek out that knowledge. See her self-hypnosis tips on accessing your intuition.
Reno-based, clinical hypnotherapist Dan Kimm, a student of Raines, can see why hypnosis would work, though he’s never had a client come in to enhance a sixth sense. “Hypnosis releases fears and engages new behavior. Hypnosis makes you more aware of your surroundings,” he says.
So if you had been an intuitive child and then lost your sensitivity as an adult, fear could’ve been a factor in your closing up. “Through hypnosis, we can explore the point in your life when you were very intuitive. Working together, we can make that feeling stronger.”
This therapy also helps you access more of your brain. If you possess some psychic ability, hypnosis can probably strengthen it. “We are all radio stations. Some are just better at receiving messages than others,” he says.
Looking back on his youth, Kimm can point out psychically sensitive episodes in his life, such as the time he saw his deceased grandfather drive past him while he was jogging. Later that day, his mother told him it was the third anniversary of his grandpa’s passing.
Since he’s worked in hypnotherapy, his own psychic sensitivities have heightened. He’s particularly in tune when those he cares about cross over–he can sense who passed and when it happened. In addition, if there’s a song Kimm hasn’t heard in a while, he’s found he can make a silent request to hear it on the radio. He says the song plays shortly afterward.
“I think we need to be open to intuitive abilities,” Kimm says. “Energy survives. It cannot be destroyed. It makes sense we can tap into those energies. We all need to trust the voice from within.”

Provocative – you’ve provided much food for thought, Kathleen!
Thank you, Sharon.
I’ll look for that movie, haven’t seen it. This post brought to mind The Mothman Prophecies.
Ahh, we just saw Mothman Prophecies a couple weeks back. Great movie!
I can’t go over a bridge without thinking of that movie. Matter of fact, freeway underpasses get me thinkin’ as well.
Glad there are no big bridges like that here in Nevada! I think whenever it’s my time to go, it’ll happen. I don’t worry about death any more, especially since I’m convinced that the essence of who I am (my soul) will continue to live on. Sorry to get so philosophical on you, Tony. 🙂
Its okay, Kathy. If nothing else, Im philosopical. Every now and then I’ll wake up in the deep of night, and the death seems so profound. I work through it, and without taking up a lot of space here, it comes down to not so much being fearful of death, but of not living a life with purpose. Writer’s malaise, I suppose.
Interesting, Tony. We all need to remember to live each day fully. Thanks.
This post is really enjoyable and I found your blog very impressive thanks for sharing nice reading for the psychic abilities.

Good psychics always seek to increase psychic abilities, that is for certain. Some use meditation, some use mantra repetition, and some apply tarot card readings. Each clairvoyant is different.
Good point. Thank you for visiting, Jimmy.

Great article. I do believe fear is a big factor especially to children losing their sensibility when growing up. But this is the first time I have read about hypnosis and psychic abilities having a connection. I have a read a lot about tarot and meditation though. Which of these do you think helps most?
Thank you for visiting my site and reading my post, Emmerey. For me, meditation has been key in my personal growth. Taking the time to silence my brain and open to the Universe has helped me feel comfortable with the spirit/heavenly realm. Before meditation, I surrounded myself with noise (starting as a child). Now, I recognize that I did this because I was sensitive and picking up information, but was fearful because I didn’t understand it. The more noise in my life, the more I could stifle my psychic abilities. I’ve had no experience with Tarot, so I don’t really have any tidbits to share with you in that regard.
Thanks Kathleen for responding. Helps a lot!
Is there a way I can follow you on Facebook or any social media account you have? I’m interested with what you are doing. Would love to see updates from you.
