Dolores Cannon The Beginning of Her Career
By Chris Walker 20th April 2015
Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy or QHHT is the gold standard in past life regression for healing at the deepest spiritual level. This technique was developed by hypnotherapist Dolores Cannon – and today we take a very brief look at who this remarkable woman was.
Dolores Cannon was born in 1931 in Missouri, USA. She married in 1951 and until 1968 she was a “typical” wife and mother. Her husband Johnny was a naval man and also a hypnotherapist.
During the 1960’s, Dolores and Johnny used simple hypnosis as a therapeutic tool to help others lose weight and stop smoking. In 1968, one of the doctors at the naval base Johnny was stationed at asked them to help one of his own patients using their hypnosis practice. This patient, a woman, was suffering from a myriad of issues including obesity, hypertension, nervous eating disorder, and kidney problems. It was hoped that via hypnosis, she could learn to relax.
This patient was Dolores’ introduction to reincarnation. Midway through the hypnosis session, the woman began describing scenes which were apparently from a past life, in Chicago in the 1920’s. Dolores and Johnny were amazed to witness this woman transform – into another personality with its own mannerisms and vocal identity. Dolores and Johnny were taken aback but decided to explore further, and regressed the woman over several months. She described five distinct lifetimes, at a time when past life regression was brand new: there was no precedent for what was happening during these hypnosis sessions.
Dolores and Johnny were trailblazers in the field of past life regression. They developed their own technique and had no limitations as they embarked on this journey with open minds and no expectations.
Later in 1968, Johnny was critically injured in an accident, and was to be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of his life. He has a ham radio operator, so made a life for himself.
Dolores resumed practicing hypnosis with clients in the late 1970’s, after her children were grown up and independent. She was particularly focused on reincarnation, and she was initially astounded as clients described past lives in detail which dated back decades, centuries, and even millennia. She recorded all sessions, and then spent large amounts of time researching the time periods and locations to verify authenticity of what had been described. Dolores, with her clients under hypnosis, would delve into the everyday minutiae of these incarnations: clothing worn, dwellings resided in, foods eaten, how days were spent, social norms, religious observations, and much, much more. Through intricate detailing and in depth research, Dolores was able to verify authenticity.
Dolores create her very unique method of hypnosis into past life regression then into a system called Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy or QHHT for short. This method has healing as well as just the past life regression. This is why it makes this type of past life regression very unique.
Over the following decades, Dolores’ work took her to places she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams. It seems like the stuff of science fiction, or imagination – but for Dolores and her clients, it was every bit as real, if not more so, than the everyday life we live now. Next week we’ll continue looking at the journey Dolores embarked upon.
