Note: 5-PATH® was developed as a result of thousands of hours of work with hypnosis and hypnotherapy clients and the integration of techniques taught by some of the master teachers in the profession of hypnotism, including but not limited to Harry Arons, Charles Tebbetts, Gerald F. Kein, Gil Boyne and others. In addition, the field of psychology and some of its greats influenced the development of the 5-PATH® process, including Franz Anton Mesmer’s Animal Magnetism, Dr. Ivan Petrovich Pavlov’s Classical Conditioning, Dr. Fritz Perls’ Gestalt Therapy, Aaron Beck’s Cognitive Therapy and others. This systematic process has been used by the many hypnosis professionals who have worked at the Banyan Hypnosis Center, as well as other 5-PATH® certified professionals around the world. 5-PATH® continues to evolve as a system with the continued experience and input of these hypnosis professionals around the world.

We focus most work on two main ideas. The first is, that all feelings are good. They are there to help and guide you. Our clients need to begin to respond to these feelings in a satisfying way, because feelings left unsatisfied do not go away. They tend to become stronger. For example, if a client is lonely, and does nothing about the condition that is causing the feeling, the tendency is to feel even lonelier over time, not less. Most of the problems that we encounter involve some kind of denial of feelings that involves distracting attention away from the feeling by doing some kind of behavior. The behavior is usually pleasant, but has negative side effects. These behaviors most often include, eating, drinking alcohol, drugs, shopping, gambling and withdrawing.
The other idea that we suggest to the client is that there is nothing wrong with the client, there never was. By this we mean that as a person, there is nothing inherently wrong with them. He or she is good enough, smart enough; attractive enough, to do about anything that he or she really puts his or her mind to (within reason of course).
Most will say that they understand this intellectually but don’t feel that way inside. It is this feeling that is causing all of the problems. They may rationally know that there is nothing wrong with them, but they certainly don’t feel as if it were true. This occurs because sometime in the past, some other person in authority, usually a parent, suggested either by word or deed that there was. It was accepted by the subconscious mind and sits there like a thorn generating negative feelings, causing them to avoid any uncomfortable emotion. It is known by the unconscious mind that these stronger feelings of fear lay just behind those otherwise mundane feelings of everyday life.
We start off assuming some things about our clients. Assumption One, that so far they have not been successful at making consistent (if any) gains in the direction that they want to go. At best, their successes have been temporary (e.g., temporary success in losing weight or eliminating a habit or addiction). We believe that there is a subconscious element at work, blocking their success. And, that the blockage is in large part emotional (i.e., fear, sadness, insecurity, loneliness, guilt or anger).
We recognize that the subconscious mind does not want to change. It wants to continue to keep on behaving is exactly the same way that it always has, however painful that is. We also believe that the subconscious mind believes that it is in the client’s best interest to do just that. This is probably a protective function of the mind.
This is an account of my journey from existing to living – completely and happily!
Lose my mind I almost did because everything that could go wrong was going wrong in my life and I tried looking for answers wherever and from whomever. Every suggestion that came my way, I tried, but to no avail. I was defeated mentally, physically and emotionally. I was on the verge of giving up on living a normal happy life, and like on cue, one faithful day I was introduced to Manjeet Kaur in Bangsar Village. She was there giving a talk on Hypnotherapy and NLP and within the first few sentences from her I was intrigued.
After months of thinking about it and looking at other possibilities, I finally googled her and made an appointment. That small move, I was not aware that day, would shift my entire life to a plain that was only dreams before.
The whole experience of hypnotherapy, I discovered is nothing like what it is made out to be in the movies. One is completely aware of what is going on; the mind is awake and alert, it is only the body that goes into a deep slumber. The control of the situation is entirely with the one under hypnosis as one is able to draw oneself out of this state anytime one desires.
The sessions I went to opened up a completely new world to me, its many facets: surreal existences within it and the multiple probabilities. I saw myself, my true self and the reasons to my maladies that keep reappearing in different forms and characters but with the same bitter results. I have been blind with my eyes open all these while. It was there all the time for me to see but I was too caught up trying to control everything around me to avoid changes within me. It was always easier to blame somebody else then yourself because if you did then you have to do the inevitable; acknowledge your true self and the many sides to it.
All the other methods I tried to make my life better only provided temporary solutions. It was like taking painkillers that numb the pain for a while and when it wears off the reality of the ailment and its pain return to preoccupy the self. Hypnotherapy on the other hand goes to the root of the matter and clears all existing conditions and leaves one with a pure self that is almost reborn.
I cannot thank Manjeet enough for these transformations within myself which has by design transformed situations and people around me. Now by being true to myself and loving me for what I am, I am receiving the well-deserved treatment and respect from the people in my life. My surrounding is going through an amazing transformation too. My life from a scenario of continuous bleak winter is seeing springtime in full blossom.
I am glowing inside out and I think everyone deserves a view of life from this side too. Once you have understood yourself truly, your potentials became more apparent and the level of CONFIDENCE just skyrockets.
You become YOU as it should be!
