I made my breakthrough as a therapist and hypnotist in Estonia in 2017, when the series Hypnotist came out on TV3. The road to it was partly filled with challenges.
I was motivated by several experiences to learn hypnosis. One was the constant need to get recognition, to prove myself that I am worth something. Also regression, or the journey of past lives, after which I realized that the world that is perceptible to the eye is not the only world.
I perform hypnosis with an inner feeling. In the same way, every person can live their life by listening to that inner feeling, the voice of the heart. Hypnosis can be done by anyone who is willing to invest in it, while remaining honest with both themselves and the client. Hypnosis is about consent and the desire for change.
I don’t remember much about my childhood. But going deep into myself, I remember times when I have seen or perceived situations with inner feelings and acted accordingly. The same thing often happens with children today, if parents do not show that awareness and perception is acceptable, then often the child pushes it out of his habits and uses more reason. I know that as a child I found it easy to escape rather than find solutions to situations, because escaping in those moments was the best solution. I have come to realize that this pattern is common, a lack of taking responsibility for one’s own life. I understand that taking responsibility for my own life has been one of my greatest lessons.
Life works in strange ways. As soon as I felt that the information I had and the way I was presenting it was unique, hypnosis in its classical form would not work without realizing the real root of the problem. So life brought Siim to me. Speaking to Siim in those first moments, I realized that he had a lot of content and experience and I suggested a partnership. It all happened because of a feeling, and I have not regretted it so far.
Each of us goes through different lessons in life, my understanding is that learning is possible if you want to, and no condition is permanent. I still remember when my 2-year-old was declared autistic and doctors and psychiatrists looked down with regret and said I should accept it, because he would stay that way forever. My 7-year-old boy is no longer autistic. The more I developed myself, the easier it became for my child. The more I took responsibility for my own life, the more my child developed.
The feeling that you are valuable can only come from within oneself. How you implement small habits is paramount. The solution is to pivot and change practices, even in a state of hypnosis.
“Hi Maris, I can only start with this that my gratitude is eternal. Not only for solving my years-long troubles but for you as a person. You are so real and special as a person. Even though my weight has not changed as a number, my previous eating habits have gone for good. I can understand only now, that the situation that was previously wasn’t normal. I take a piece of chocolate and this does not affect my mentality because like your words – every moment in your life is as enjoyable as this piece of chocolate. I don’t need it any more. My body and soul understood that food is just for the body to hold on and keep on going for best functioning, not the only available source of enjoyment for the soul. So i have mindfully tried to replace these enjoyments and try to find in myself that maybe there is something else hidden that I have not found yet. I cannot even put into words the moment I looked myself in the mirror after the session. It is undescribable. I felt that old feeling again, just like falling in love with myself over again. My mom told me immediately that it is incredible how your eyes look. They have never shined so brightly before. The weight is gone. I also took your advice and recorded my own little hypnosis sessions and it has been incredible as a process. I had noticed it before but I realized again. People need to be asked the right questions so that they can answer themselves. Only this way realizations and answers can come that stay because they are not emotional. This way I have been getting for myself new answers from myself, every day. Thank you for this.”
“Hi Maris, I received the hypnosis and I want to tell you that after our session my way of thinking has drastically changed. 0 tolerance is a normal way of life for me and I don’t think anymore that I need it and that is that. Thinking about alcohol takes effort and and also if I want to talk about it, it takes a lot of effort 🙂 So all is great. Of course I will listen to the hypnosis even more and meditate as much as possible. Again, great thanks to you!” – Ryan
“Hello Maris. I am writing to you to thank you, sincerely and deeply thank you for our conversation! I got a lot of answers for my questions and my worries and I understood where my problems have started and why they have continued. My attitude and feeling have drastically changed and over a long period of time I feel alive and great 🙂 You are an awesome therapist! I am looking forward to our hypnosis tape as well!” -Jason
