hypnosis and infant memories?

Question by Jen1943: hypnosis and infant memories?
Is it possible to be hypnotized and remember exact, accurate memories from when you were a baby- like 1 or 2 years old? And not necessarily traumatic memories, but just memories themselves?

I thought that it was generally accepted that adults can’t remember things that happened when they were infants or really young, but can hypnosis help me with this?

The answer is a definitive NO ! Don’t be fooled by charlatans who claim they can do this. In fact be careful if you go to any person calling themselves a “hypnotist”. I don’t know of any states that regulate this trade. Only the state can certify or license and there are no states that do this. A person can hang out a shingle without any training. Hypnosis is a relative safe thing, but there are instances where a patient with a histrionic personality can get into deep trouble and need a well trained psychologist or perhaps a MSW to be working with them. If you go to one listed in the phone book under “hypnotist” and they are not also listed under psychologist, psychotherapist, LPC, etc. then stay away. You need to see someone with at least a Masters Degree and a member of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis or an associate member. Research on age regression to ANY AGE is not very kind to this process. Certainly stay away from some charlatan claiming they can regress you to early childhood, past lives, etc. There is even debate whether what most people think of as hypnosis actually exist.

    Hello susie

    It isnt impossible.

    When your regressed you ‘are’ in most cases that age, so it would leave you unable to determine what was being experienced. You can be taken back via a time line & look at such times, based on memory’s – which will be in there.

    You can also be taken under & given suggestions that happy memories will appear/come to you either then or over next few days & ‘bits’ or whole memories will come.

    You will have to find a good Hypnotherapist, especially if you wish to do such for personal rather than therapy reasons.
