Love Light and Action Blossom Furtado


These are some of the many modalities that THE HYPNOTHERAPY SCHOOL OF INDIA ( HSI ) uses

to give individuals back their Own Power through

SELF ACCEPTANCE Accepting Every Aspect of themselves - good or bad - and bringing their Shadows into the Light with Awareness - Acceptance with Responsibility and being in Action at all times

We did an Exercise with an Broken Mirror some time ago - Many participants were very surprised - even shocked - their response - a broken mirror - pieces of myself - how can this be possible? I am living this life with everything that I need - Freedom - Money - Relationships - the Works...

As yet as they looked deep within there is this niggling feeling sometimes that something is Still missing and they cannot put a finger on it

My younger brother - one I was quietly fond of - I actually saw him grow from a baby - a person who did everything right - a Hero so to say - a dutiful son - a protective brother - a loving husband - a doting father and an amazing Human Being - Roti - Kapda - Makaan - all going good - yet he had the Big C and died young

On the surface all was well - yet DEEP within him were FROZEN parts of himself - some he was aware of and did not do anything - some he was not aware and could not do anything

The Scriptures say that WE all have the Power to Change - Mahatma Gandhji said BE THE CHANGE - We all have this Life and so with


A.) We can thaw deep frozen parts that may exist at an iceberg level

B.) We can with Courage and Determination bring our Shadows from the Dark where we have hidden them into the Light

C.) We can with Love - Forgiveness and Gratitude Accept ourselves fully no matter what

We would then be able to Live Life fully in the Here and Now knowing and Understanding that we are all Immortal Spiritual Beings having a temporary Human experience

HSI through our Courses - Workshops and Therapy facilitates you to access your Subconscious Mind - that Genius or Higher Self part of you and take Action and then a Whole new World of Possibility opens up - a World of Love - Joy - Peace - Happiness and Fulfillment

When I think I have healed myself completely - a part pops up in pain asking to be healed and I use all the modalities and opportunities to Reconnect back to my Original Self and the Journey continues - Living in Awareness - Accepting with responsibility and Always in Action

I invite you all to Ask - Seek and find Modalities that facilitate you to look within and Reconnect to Your Own Power and keep your Remote with Yourself at all times

Love Light Gratitude

It is flowing through and through your body and you can anchor it in your right palm when I say 0. 5-4-3-2-1-0 Now Now that you have anchored it in your palm, at any time in the future whenever you feel you need to boost yourself up, all you need to do is put your right palm on your left palm and mentally repeat to yourself - I am safe, comfortable and happy. I trust the process of life. All is well. C I feel real good T Very good and now feeling safe, comfortable and happy and real good - slowly come back to the here and now and when you feel comfortable, you may open your eyes and come back to the here and now feeling very safe, comfortable and happy and real good




It happened a long time ago - I cannot remember how old I must have been - maybe 3 or 4 years - we were visiting my maternal grandparents home and so was my mothers eldest sister and her family. There was a party at home one evening and my Aunt and Uncle with my Mom and Dad walked the long pathway to the gate to see off some friends. My cousin brother and I decided to accompany them - it was late in the night. We walked side by side with our parents to see them off - however on our return to the house both of us decided to race back to see who would reach first - our parents were busy chatting with each other and did not give us the usual "do not do that" instruction.

So along the path we ran - both side by side until I took off a little faster and was ahead of him - suddenly from behind a tree on the pathway - a Being stepped forward - clothed in black - red eyes - arms open wide - and walked towards me - I was scared and yet could not scream - no sound came out from my throat - it was as if time had stopped and here I was in another dimension with an unknown being terrified and still - and then in that same moment there stepped in another Being - clothed in Light - clear smiling eyes - arms open wide - and stepped in between the other Being and myself - all fear vanished - I felt calm and peaceful and slipped to the ground.

When I woke up I was in bed at home with my whole family hovering around me wondering what had happened - I tried explaining to them what happened just a little while ago - however they did not listen and went about doing their own bit to make me comfortable at the physical level.

This was the first time I realized that there was more to life than what we as "Humans" experienced and yet there was no one who would listen or explain to me what happened that night. I became reflective and quiet and kept a lot to myself - I have had many more such experiences in life as I grew up and decided that one day I would find "Answers" to these experiences that others could not understand.

My journey through life got me in touch with a number of Living Masters and I always find "Answers" when I look within - "YOUR PERSPECTIVE IS ALWAYS LIMITED BY HOW MUCH YOU KNOW - EXPAND YOUR KNOWLEDGE AND YOU WILL TRANSFORM YOUR MIND" says Bruce Lipton Author of Biology of Belief - and this just fits in wonderfully.

When you transform your MIND you will be able to transform your BODY as well - Bruce Lipton goes on to say "A cell's life is controlled by the physical and energetic environment and not by its genes. Genes are simply molecular blueprints used in the construction of cells, tissues and organs. The environment serves as a CONTRACTOR who reads and engages those genetic blueprints and is ultimately responsible for the character of a cell's life. It is a single cell's 'awareness' of the environment, not its genes, that sets into motion the MECHANISMS OF LIFE

Not everything that is written and explored by others is true - find the confidence and courage to explore life from your own perspective and find answers to all your queries - your clarifications - your doubts - YOU ARE THE ANSWER - RECONNECT TO YOUR INNER RESOURCES and manifest a HEALTHY BODY A REFLECTIVE MIND AND A HOLISTIC LIFE

New findings that could revitalize healing and free the Energy System from unknown influences

By Blossom Furtado

Who am I

I am not the Body. I have a Body - Mind and Soul. I am an Integrated Energy System that needs to function in sync when we are living.

What happens when we die

When we die the Soul and Mind go back together to the Source and the Body which

we use as a vehicle to evolve and grow is cremated or buried. However sometimes whilst the body is cremated or buried, and the Soul and Mind needs to go back to the Source, the Soul and Mind do not go back to the Source in time and therefore stay Earthbound. These are called Earthbound Energies.

What is an Earthbound Energy

Earthbound Energies or "Atma" as they are called in India is the surviving consciousness of deceased humans. The emotions and feelings connected with a sudden, traumatic death can leave the soul and mind in confusion as to what exactly has happened and this results in them not being able to leave the earth plane. Strong Emotions like anger, fear, jealousy, resentment, guilt, distress, even strong associations of love, can interfere with the transition back to Source.

What happens to this Earthbound Energy

These Earthbound Energies can attach themselves to living beings, places and things and create upheavals and imbalances.

If a person dies by drug overdose, the newly deceased Earthbound may attach to someone who uses drugs or alcohol in order to continue to experience the sensations of the habit. If a person dies in an accident and there is still incomplete work, then they stay on the Earth plane to complete the work. Souls also remain on the Earth plane due to a lack of awareness of their own death How do we identify these Earthbound Attachments

An attachment may be noticed by a sudden onset of drug or alcohol usage, unusual and inappropriate expression and behavior patterns, beliefs, personal tastes or noticeable personality changes following surgery, accident, emotional upset, suicide

of a family member etc. They can also create problems in relationships, emotions, mental thoughts and physical pain to name a few of the imbalances they can cause.

Can these Earthbound Energies hurt or harm Living Beings

An Earthbound energy retains the energy pattern of its own thinking, feelings, habits and symptoms of the disease and can transmit it to anyone temporarily causing anguish, anger, mental abnormality or emotional disturbance and sometimes even a symptom of a physical illness. This can be extremely confusing and frightening for the person, the family members and friends. These Earthbound energies can sometimes be self serving to fulfill their own needs, can be naughty, can create harmful influences or can be completely neutral.

Who are the Individuals that can be affected by Earthbound energies

These attachments are completely unplanned and sometimes even accidental.

A person with a weak Bio Energetic Field can be vulnerable and open to attachment. This can be the result of mental, emotional or physical pain, strong emotions - grief at the death of a loved one - anger - repressed negative feelings, conscious or unconscious want or greed, fear, jealousy, resentment, guilt, distress, even strong associations of love. This vulnerability can attract a wandering Earthbound Energy with the same or similar emotion, condition, need or thought.

Is there a Healing possible for the Person and the

Earthbound Energy

Yes, there are trained therapists who are skilled in relaxing the Conscious Mind and enabling YOU to access the Subconscious Mind. At this deep level of your Mind you are able to find the cause of your issue - have a conversation with the Earthbound - establish the reason it did not go back to the Source and find resolution - enhance its own ENERGY and facilitate it to go back to its home in the Source.

In Metaphysical Science this is called Spirit Release. Therapists are finding that with the changes and increase in the vibrations of the earth, cases of Earthbound energies or unknown influences are on the rise and more and more affected persons are approaching therapists to mitigate their suffering.

How can we keep ourselves safe

You can keep yourself safe by taking care of the following :

Physical Self and Environment - Well balanced healthy and

nutritious food - Good health - Good sleep - Regular grounded and balanced daily routine - Cleanliness and tidiness of the physical environment - All gadgets in the physical environment are functioning well

Energetic Environment - Regular Exercising - Regular grounded and balanced daily routine - Refined enjoyment of all senses and physical comforts and yet not bound by them

Emotional Environment - Regular time in meditation or Self Empowerment - Affectionate - warm - empathetic - joyful - loving and caring for all life forms

Mental Environment - Respect and equality - forgiveness - acceptance - kindness - gratitude - humility - practical - methodical - clear and precise in communication

Overall Life Environment - Balanced - harmonized - grounded - truthful and honest - goal oriented - focused - determined - puts in effort - has the will and is objective and demonstrates being the CHANGE THEY WANT TO SEE

At The Hypnotherapy School of India we offer COURSES and WORKSHOPS that enable you to Heal Yourself and draw on your own Inner Resources to power and maintain all the Five Environments mentioned above. A Healer in every family is our Motto.

Hypnotherapy - Treating Unsuspected Sources of Physical and Mental Disease


Blossom Furtado

[This article is published in B POSITIVE - A Health and Lifestyle Magazine - Apollo Hospitals publication - January 2010 issue]

A journey through a stirring story of a young girl, where hypnotherapy is the hero.

It was a lovely, warm, bright Sunday evening. The flowers in the garden are swaying in the light breeze. There is a constant rustle of the leaves as the wind passes through. Everything is perfect in the garden as the maid sets out the table for tea for this family of ten.

There is chatter as the family walks up to the table and seat themselves at their designated places to share their week's adventures. There is the head of the family, Dadaji, his wife, their two sons and their wives and his four grand children - two girls and two boys - all aged between 4 and sixteen years of age. The children eagerly tuck into the homemade cookies and cake, specially baked for them by their grandmother.

Two gardeners maintain the family's large garden. Prachi, the sixteen-year old bubbly granddaughter is very interested in the wide variety of the garden's flora, and takes keen interest in gardening. She is particularly fond of the senior gardener whom she addresses as Baba. Baba for his part, adores Prachi as she loves the garden and the trees and plants and flowers in much the same way that he does.

Trouble in Paradise

Life went on as usual for his family until Prachi turned 21. Instead of spending time with her friends and family, she would often be found in the garden tending to the plants or attempting to mow the lawn. She became quiet and reserved and would keep to herself. Her conversation in the family was restricted to the basis needs and she spent most of her time in the garden on her own.

At first, her family felt that this was a part of growing up - maybe she just preferred to be on her own. But soon it got worse. Prachi would wake up early, tend to the garden, and then go back to sleep. She would sleep almost all day, skipping meals at times, and wake up again towards the evening to again be on her own. Her food intake became almost minimal, and many times she would skip even having a bath, as she felt very tired. She stayed indoors most of the time.

Seeking Help

After three months, her family sought help from specialists. The tests revealed nothing, and she was referred to a psychologist and subsequently, also to a psychiatrist. But despite treating her for two years and prescribing drugs, they could not identity what was troubling Prachi, and there was no relief from the problem.

When a cousin who came down from the US suggested hypnotherapy, the family brought her to my clinic. I remember the day Prachi visited my clinic. She was beautifully attired in a designer yellow salwar suit. Her hair was shoulder length - not styled but trimmed, and her accessories were in line with what was currently in vogue. But her expression was sad and forlorn.

I asked her to fill up a form that is the usual practice in the clinic, and I observed her as she went about putting down the various details. Her parents sat next to her, but she never looked at them to ask for any validation or to seek any support. I saw a quiet determination of a soul that wanted to heal as she went about writing down her true feelings. In response to, "Describe in your own words what is your challenge/issue," she wrote: "I feel tired and lonely. I want to talk to my family, but cannot pick up the strength to do so. I do not feel like eating. Whenever I eat any food, I feel I would be sick. I just want to lie down, and feel more comfortable when I do so. I am tired and lonely." To "What is it that you want to achieve from this therapy?" she wrote, "I want to be Prachi."

Accessing the Source of Her Physical Issue

I took her into a session, relaxing her, motivating her and empowering her. I reminded her that if she wanted to be Prachi then she needed to relax and heal herself. I took her into a state of deep relaxation - we call this a Passive State - something we go through twice everyday - every morning when we wake up, and every night when we go to sleep. This is a state where we are not fully aware but are conscious enough to still use our five senses. In this relaxed passive state, we are able to access the causes of our physical, mental and emotional disturbances, guided by a hypnotherapist.

I asked her to find out in her Energy System what was causing her to be tired and lonely. There was a flurry of activity - her body shivered, her hands began twitching, her face was quivering and she became restless. I held her hand and reminded her that if she wanted to be Prachi then she needed to go through this process to heal herself.

I then took her through the process, letting her experience an altered state of consciousness by relaxing the conscious mind and accessing the energy field around her through her subconscious mind. As she relaxed, her restlessness ceased and there was a calm and tranquillity. I asked her to look around and requested for the source that caused her to be tired and lonely. And she - very softly - told me that the gardener, whom she called Baba, appeared. He was standing in her healing space or energy field. She described what he was wearing and how he looked as he stood in front of her, and said, “He says he is tired and lonely.

Healing and Releasing the Energy

Healing and releasing Energy is a process filled with unconditional love and forgiveness and a win-win-win for the therapist, client and the disembodied entity. In about 90 minutes, the process was completed. Prachi came back to her Conscious Fully Awake State. She woke up from the recliner, looking fresh yet tired. Her face was flowing and there was an aura of peace and tranquility around her. She looked at me but did not say anything. Her body language said it all - "Thank you!"

What I had just released was an Earthbound Entity - the disembodied spirit of the gardener Baba who had died three years ago, and stayed back on Earth because it could not make the transition into the higher realms after physical death. I had guided it back into the Light.

What Happened to Prachi

The old gardener Baba had died suddenly of a heart attack. He did not want to leave the loving and safe environs of the garden in which he worked and stayed back. Prachi was the one who visited the garden often and was fond of the plants and trees. The gardener had a fondness for Prachi when he was alive and that emotion enabled him to attach himself to Prachi. Baba the gardener was old, tired and lonely and he passed on these emotions and physical manifestations to Prachi when he attached his energy to hers. Prachi was not aware of this, and over time, grew tired and lonely being influenced by the gardener's energy.

Once this disembodied entity was located and released, Prachi was now able to function with her own energy, which was bubbly and vibrant. She returned to her normal self almost immediately, and within two weeks, was “Prachi” the happy-go-lucky young woman, who now went about her life exactly as any other 23-year-old would.

A healing was accomplished - a young woman got back her life and a disembodied spirit was guided back onto the Source to go forward on his journey either to choose another body and return to the Earth plane or take a break and rest in the metaphysical realms.

Hypnotherapy - Treating Unsuspected Sources of Physical and Mental Disease

"I am now in my Healing Space - it is beautiful garden with large trees in front of me, a colorful bed of flowers to my right and a beautiful lake to my left. I am seated on a swing that creaks as it goes up and it looks like it has not been used for a long time. I feel very calm, serene and relaxed as I swing up and down with the wind blowing against my face. I see butterflies of many colors flying around and the birds are chirping away in the trees. It is wonderful morning and the sun shining down awakens me to a different world."

This is what individuals can experience in an altered state of consciousness achieved through relaxing and conscious mind and accessing the universe through the subconscious mind using hypnosis.

Hypnosis is a scientifically acknowledged psychological and therapeutic discipline and is the most expedient way to access the subconscious Mind. It is a method by which any person may be guided into an altered state of conscious awareness in which psychological and physical changes beyond normal conscious capability can be achieved.

"Our Mind controls absolutely everything about us" - It creates every disease that manifests in the physical body as everything starts with a THOUGHT. According to the conventional medical world wisdom, a number of diseases are what are called psychosomatic, which means mainly in the mind.

How the mind works

The mind is divided into two parts - the Conscious Mind and the Subconscious Mind. The Conscious Mind is our logical, reasoning, thinking, mind that we use all the time when we are awake. The Subconscious Mind is a repository of all our experiences and memories. It permanently stores everything that we ever see - hear - smell - feel - every thought - every emotion.

The doorway between the Conscious and the Subconscious Mind is opened and you can work on the issues or challenges that have stopped us in the past

Who we are - how we respond - and what we believe - are functions of the subconscious mind. The Subconscious Mind has all the information about us - knows everything about us, and looks after and protects us all the time. We however, do not have direct access to the information in the Subconscious Mind.

The Conscious Mind has access to the Subconscious Mind and uses this information to reach its own decisions, and many times, manipulates the information it obtains from the base.

Our behaviour is combined response of our conscious and our subconscious mind. Our conscious mind has set up the 'rules' for our behaviour, based on our belief system, which originates from our subconscious mind which has the memories of all our prior experiences, thereby telling us what feels good and what does not.

How hypnotherapy helps access and heal issues of the mind

In the Hypnotic State, deep Alpha or Theta, the doorway between the conscious and the subconscious mind is opened - memories become easily accessible and you can work on the issues or challenges that have stopped us in the past. We are able to access and heal all emotional, mental and physical issues, which enables us to return themselves to the positive state of mind, which will in turn, attract healing and positive possibilities into our lives.

This also provides us a unique opportunity to understand the complex workings of our own mind and empowers us to help ourselves, heal our self and live a happy, joyful and more fulfilling life.

Thus, hypnotherapy can be applied to modify human behavior and perception. Hypnotherapists help in self-improvement areas that are not severe enough to be considered psychopathologies, and they work as professionals in conjunction with medical doctors, psychologists, chiropractors, dentists and other health professionals.

A case of coping with the death of a loved one

I will give you a case study for an emotional issue - wherein I used Hypnosis to heal a young woman who said that she was unable to accept the death of her brother. This is how she communicated to me in the first session.

"It has been three years since my brother passed away. I am unable to accept his death and move on. I grieve every waking moment of my life so much so that it has affected my work, my marriage, my home and now 'me'. I have a headache most of the days. Some days get even worse and I have to stay in bed with a 'sinking feeling'. I have no interest in my husband, my children, my home, my friends, my work. I have been on antidepressants for most of two years and am now almost at the point of breaking down. The 'sinking feeling' has become a part of my life and follows me everywhere."

On further deep cognitive exploration, she concluded that it really is her own fear of death that was the cause for the 'deep depression'.

In the next session, I used hypnosis to help her relax, bypass the conscious mind and access the subconscious mind. I asked the subconscious mind for access to her first experience of the fear of death and this 'sinking feeling'. She instantly accesses this memory.....

The first fear of death retrieved from her subconscious memory

She is at her grandmother's home – she is 8 years old and her brother is 11 years old. There are 9 children aged between 8 and 14 years and they are all playing. There is a huge rock and the children climb up the rock and enjoy the thrill of jumping down. They do this many times over - landing on their feet all the time until her brother jumps off the rock and instead of landing on his feet, hits his head on the ground and a piece of store jutting out causes a cut and he lies there bleeding. The older children rush to get help from the elders in the family whilst she and another cousin stay back to be with her brother.

As they are waiting, a servant from the locality comes by, looks at the bleeding boy, and jokingly says, "He is dead". He then looks directly at her and says, "Now that he is dead, you too will die soon." This is the first time she becomes afraid of death and experiences that 'sinking feeling'.

Her brother did not die then, they got help, the cut healed and he lived for 48 years thereafter with no recall of the memory. What she did not realize was that her subconscious had downloaded the servant's dialogue and associated her brother's death with her own death.

Now after her brother passed away, that memory and the association was triggered and what came up was "You too will die soon."

This thought brought about anxiety and fear and caused all the symptoms that eventually lead to deep depression.

The healing power of hypnotic suggestion

I used the therapeutic tool of disassociation to get her to replace the earlier thought of "you too will die soon" with "I trust the process of life, I am safe, secure and protected. I live effectively, productively and remain calm peaceful and happy at all times.

So now what happens is that every time she thinks of her brother and his passing away, she accesses the replacement thought and remains calm, peaceful and happy. It is now over three years and she continues with her job and remains committed to all areas of her life.
