2 - The Arlington TIMES - Wed., Aug. 19, 1981 Hypnosis helps Lakewood woman help eliminate people's problems By Law Williams The hypnotic state, From watching movies and television shows many per- sons acquire inaccurate preceptions of this phenomena. re-enforcement. Through her experience with hypnosis, Barker believes a person should lay down and relax deep - enough to acquire a hypnotic state for 15 minutes a day. Such a daily activity would reduce stress on the heart, lungs and blood vessels. This limits the chance of a heart attack, a major killer~. ' in the United States. "Americans don't do that though - the boss wants it now." Barker said to illustrate the stress filled society in the U.S. Barker entered the field of hypnosis because she was excited about the results it has on people and herself. Over a 2% month period, she lost 43 pounds through the use of hypnosis. Richard Anderson was her hypnotist and later instructed a class on it at Everett Community College, where Barker learned the skill. All this occurred three years ago, now Barker enjoys helping persons improve themselves and demonstrate to them that hypnosis isn't as dramatic as portrayed on television or in the movies. "It's gratifying to see people come in miserable and go out happy," Barker said. Patrlela Barker Hypnotized persons can't do anything against their conscience or moral nature, so don't believe everything hypnotists cause unsuspecting persons to do in shows. Under hypnosis persons can be instruct- ed to forget what happens while in the hYtmOtiC state, but most hypnotists leave the dramatics to television. Lakewoc, d's resident hypnotist, Patricia Barker. feels precisely that way. Barker's clients remember everything that occurs while in the hypnotic state, because what they hear is beneficial, People came to Barker for help to improve themselves and she obliges through posilive thinking, Barker's positive suggestions are effec- tive when she plants them in a person's subconscious. 1"o reach the subconscious, a client is hypnotized. l.ocated on the fireplace mantle in Barker's living room. a lit candle is set. Her subject lays back in a reclining chair across the small room and stares at the llama. Barker sits to the right side of the chair. The subject must relax, pay attention and follow instructions. "Some people come in here and think lira going to have total power over them. It's simply not true. They're totally aware of e~crythi||g going on around them," Barkc~ said, Jhc key to hypnotizing the person in the reclining chair is Barker's voice. After briefly staring at the candle, she instructs the person to close their eyes and continually tells them to picture them- selves somewhere and relax. As she counts down from 10 or 20, the subject is told they drift into a deeper relaxation. People experience the state of relaxa- tion Barker puts her clients into everyday. "You pass through it every morning and night o when you go to sleep," she said. It's the state between awake and sleeping. The conscience (it analyses and makes decisiom is asleep and a person's subcon- scious ithc mental activity just below the conscious) when attitudes are stored, then is open to change. "Hypnotism is effective because while in a hypnotic state, a person is very suggestible. Everyone has problems they wish were different. Hypnotists give them the ability to do so (correct the problem)," Barker said. Hypnosis - "a combination of advance relaxation and positive thinking is unbeatable," she added. Through hypnosis. Barker has helped persons lose weight, stop smoking, give up nail biting, cure phobias and build confidence. Hypnosis is also being used in other parts of the country to block out pain accompanying cancer, help accident vic- tims recall details, plus, rid the pain during childbirth and while at a dentist. Hypnosis also helps athletes improve in sports by improving their concentration, "The mind has a tremendous capability to help the body," Barker said, Through hypnosis some of that capability is brought out. When a person, such as a cigarette smoker, asks for help through hypnosis, Barker can't just hypnotize them and say "'stop smoking." She can only give them the desire to quit. They're told of the disgusting taste of cigarettes and the awful smell, plus, plant positive suggestions into the subcon- scious, like they'll feel better, have better health, save money and have more time. While some clients only need one session, most meet with Barker twice. Cassette tapes of the sessions are also made so a client can play them at home for Locals attend Business Week Eight local students faced the decisions of corporate executive this summer at Business Week 1981.
