A learned man visits a teacher in the hopes to learn even more. The learned man is very enthusiastic about the knowledge that he has accumulated all these years. After a quick greeting, he begins to share with the teacher his thoughts, philosophies, lessons, conclusions and opinions.
The teacher listens attentively and asks the man, “Would you like a cup of tea?”
“Oh yes please teacher, that is very kind of you.”
As the man holds the saucer and cup, the teacher pours. The warm liquid fills half the cup, then the full cup, then overflows at the brim. Peacefully, the teacher continues to pour tea for the student. The student, alarmed, exclaims, “Teacher, the cup is already full!” The teacher says, “Yes, the cup is already full. How can a cup that is already full hold any more tea? How can a mind that is already full afford space to accept new things? New learning begins by freeing the mind.”
What is 7th Path Self-Hypnosis®
The 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® system consists of a series of hypnotic suggestions and a special technique for using them that will result in positive personal change. This system of self-hypnosis was developed by Dr Calvin Banyan from observations and insights gained through thousands of hypnotherapy hours with clients. The 7th Path is now taught all over the world by certified 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® teachers.
7th Path is unlike any other system of self-hypnosis because it has built-in steps that work toward removing old subconscious barriers to successful living before you give yourself any self-hypnosis suggestions for the changes that you want t make.
Some aspects of the process are like an anti-virus program that removes destructive programs from the computer. The “program” will work to remove the little limiting programs that you have picked up over your lifetime. It could be bad habits and erroneous beliefs in limitation and the painful emotions that they generate. It could also be a nagging feeling that something is not quite right. Perhaps you know what needs to be addressed, but do not know how to address it. 7th Path can help. You will learn to use this system to literally reprogram yourself for success.
What 7th Path can Do for You
Often times, students begin the 7th Path with an intention of working toward personal changes. Since 7th Path is a holistic mind-body practice, it is common to experience positive changes in other aspects even before suggestions are given directly to address the changes that they want to make. 7th Path practitioners have reported results in weight loss, reduction of stress, improvement at work and studies, more confidence, self-esteem, etc. Some students have even observed better health and healing in conditions such as elimination of aches and stutters. 7th Path is not meant as an alternative to medical cure. There is reason to believe that since the mind and body is a systemic process, positive changes in the mind brought on by 7th Path helps to affect positive changes in the body.
7th Path can be a Private Practice
If there is a change or improvement that you would rather work in the privacy of your own mind, 7th Path is a system that allows you to do so. There is no need to share your private issues if you prefer not to. The 7th Path teacher will teach you the steps of using the system, and get you going on reprogramming yourself towards your goals.
7th Path can be a Spiritual Practice, if You Like
A spiritual approach is not necessary for the successful use of the 7th Path Self-Hypnosis® system. However, if you are inclined, the advance levels of 7th Path can be used as a holistic mind-body-spirit approach to change. Using such high concepts and beliefs seem to promote a faster, more powerful and more permanent change. Even though it can be used as a spiritual practice, 7th Path does not promote or discourage any particular belief system or religion. 7th Path practitioners come from a variety of personal beliefs and we respect and welcome all.
