Surgeries are Unconsciously Recorded and Can Affect Your Health

PLTC Founder/Author: Thomas Paul, DCH

Have you ever been under the influence of anesthesia during a surgery in this lifetime?  If so, you were most likely unconscious during the entire procedure.  The surgical staff’s dialogue during the operation was unconsciously recorded and could be affecting your health today or in the future.  This newsletter examines how doctors, nurses, anesthesiologists, etc., can inadvertently influence and possibly hinder the recovery and overall health of a patient due to their choice of words and behaviors during an operation.  This newsletter serves to educate both the medical community and PLTC newsletter subscribers who may be unaware of this matter.  Note: Past Life Therapy Center does not advocate avoiding surgical or other medical procedures when necessary. 

The Past Life Therapy Center® De-Hypnosis Method accesses unconscious memories from this lifetime or previous lifetimes.  This therapeutic process makes conscious and resolves any commands, dialogue, or activity that one was not able to consciously filter during an unconscious state due to trauma or drug-induced unconsciousness in preparation for surgery.

During surgery, a comment such as ‘I don’t think he is going to make it’ or ‘she may need to have this removed someday too,’ or ‘I’m so tired. I don’t know how I’m going to get through this’ can unconsciously affect a patients well-being after a surgery and influence the likelihood of needing future surgeries. It can also affect their motivation levels and life choices.  The unconscious dialogue, which is actually coming from the surgical staff, becomes the patient’s internal dialogue.  A patient’s unconscious mind will then take on these beliefs and commands as their own, which may unconsciously influence them after the procedure.

Past Life Therapy (PLT) utilizing clinical hypnosis makes unconscious dialogue conscious.  It aims to change the unconscious script that could be affecting one’s health and behaviors.  This is done by separating the dialogue that is not one’s own in order to prevent the mind from unconsciously instructing the body to fail or unconsciously directing one to adopt unproductive or destructive behaviors.

After an operation that is technically successful or unsuccessful, a patient may begin to avoid moving forward in their career, or decide not to take on challenges they normally would for deep down they unconsciously believe ‘I’m too tired. I don’t know if I’m going to get through this.’  Or perhaps, ‘I don’t think I'm going to make it’ which is almost verbatim from the surgical staff dialogue example. These thoughts spoken out loud during the operation can cause the patient to confuse the dialogue as being their own.  The doctor in this example is too tired for this lengthy procedure, not the patient.

A patient will unconsciously absorb (record) his or her doctor’s thoughts and beliefs similar to how one records their mother’s thoughts, beliefs, and coping mechanisms consciously spoken during the prenatal period.  The only major difference being that during the prenatal period a person records both their mother’s conscious and unconscious thoughts while the unconscious mind is being developed and influenced in the womb.

PLT can resolve any unconscious commands affecting you today that were recorded in this lifetime or past lifetimes at the time of a trauma, surgery, or one’s prenatal or birth experience.  Furthermore, the deeper, unresolved issue that may have lead to the trauma or medical issue may have roots in previous lifetimes.  PLT can allow for a more thorough resolution since PLT gives the mind permission to locate the source without limiting the mind to current lifetime experiences.  It can uncover patterns and unconscious dialogue from many lifetimes of trauma being re-created unconsciously.  

The job of a Clinical Past Life Therapist using The Netherton-Paul Method is to help a client make the connections of how current day problems are rooted in past experiences.  Particularly, unconscious experiences when one did not have the ability to consciously filter dialogue recorded during an unconscious event such as surgery. 

Case Study (Jack’s Surgery):  

The following case study involves a Past Life Therapy Center client whose appendectomy at 12 years of age is still negatively affecting him today at age 47.  A client I will call Jack for anonymity.  Jack came to see me due to a depressed state which is resulting in weight gain and alcoholism.

After some relaxation techniques, I instructed my client to allow his unconscious mind to reveal the details of an operation from this lifetime.  This case study has been abbreviated for simplicity and discussion purposes.  The surgical staff’s names have been altered.

Dr Adams:    “He needs an epidural right away.”

Jack:    (I feel it going into my back, a long needle.  I feel numb, then warm.)

Note: At 12 years old, the drugs from this operation will make it more likely Jack will use drugs like alcohol or prescription drugs to ‘feel numb’ when he needs to get through challenges or painful life experiences in adulthood.

The anesthesiologist in the operating room gives Dr. Adams a signal it’s ok to begin.  Gas is administered for further sedation.

Dr. Adams:    “Count backwards for me.”  

Jack:    10, 9, 8…

Note: In some cases,  ‘counting down’ a patient can increase their likelihood of developing depressed feelings or fatigue after an operation due to most doctors not having the patient ‘count up’ when the surgery is completed.  A drug-induced unconsciousness causes an altered state with the mind vulnerable to suggestive commands immediately or years after the surgery.

Dr. Adams:      “He’s in bad shape.”

Note: This unconsciously recorded statement sets in motion a lifetime of feeling that one’s ‘in bad shape.’ Hence, Jack’s on-going struggle with weight loss and body image as an adult.  Jack’s unconscious mind will always tell him ‘he’s in bad shape.’

Nurse:    "He has to deal with Dr. Meyers… the butcher. Can't you operate on him doctor?"
Dr. Adams:     "No, I can't, it wouldn't be my job. He's Meyer's patent.  If he's lucky, he will be late as usual and someone else can work on him."  
Nurse:    "Dr. Meyers is here…finally got his page."
Dr. Meyers comes into the operating room.
Dr. Meyers:    "Can I have the scalpel?  Why didn't you call me sooner on this patient?"
Nurse:    "Sorry doctor" (She replies subserviently.  She paged him several times.)
Dr. Meyers:    “Adams…that will be enough.  You can leave now.”
Jack:    (I'm scared)  
Jack temporarily leaves his focused state in his therapy session fearing what he is going to discover and become fully conscious of if he continues. I encourage him to move forward with the scene.
Dr. Meyers:    "I'm going to give myself enough room to get this out quick....I can't find it.  I may have to go in from the back."
Jack needs an appendectomy.  A rather simple but very serious operation especially when the appendix is ruptured and potentially toxic. Jack's appendix was ruptured.  The appendix is located on the right side of the lower abdomen.
Jack:  (He's digging in my intestines, it hurts bad. I can't move.  I wish Dr. Adams was here.  I liked him.  He was nice. Why isn't he doing the operation?)  
During surgery, patients can go in and out of consciousness for brief periods and sometimes feel pain.
Note: De-Hypnosis allows a client to observe an overview of the situation similar to a mock 'out of body' experience using the mind.  This is a temporary less-focused moment in the therapy session in order to observe what is going on around them.  Most sessions involve the client 'in the body' without trying to consciously filter what is happening. Clients are encouraged to stay 'in the body' speaking in the first person regardless if the voices around them are their own.  This grounds them in the experience and allows the dialogue to flow more readily.  The observer or 'out of body' role causes the client to narrate what is going on. This is usually only encouraged by the therapist for clarification purposes, but is also a client's attempt to avoid the trauma.  I do not keep my clients in the observer role for very long since it keeps them from re-experiencing the scene fully for resolution.
Jack:    (Mr. Meyers is drunk!  I can smell it.  He has been drinking!)
Note: The unconscious memories can result in a client repeating the same physical movements and reactions including recalling smell or taste.
Jack:    (They are rolling me on my side...I think my intestines are falling out!)
Dr. Meyers:    "I'll try to find a place to make an incision from the back."
As the doctor searches for an area of the back to make another incision, the nurse realizes the doctor is intoxicated and tries to control the situation.
Nurse:    "I think this is it."
Dr. Meyers:    "Nurse, I know anatomy."
Nurse:    "Isn't this it doctor?"  
The nurse assists him with locating the appendix and he begins to pull at it aggressively and yanks it out according to Jack's observations.
Dr. Meyers:    "Okay nurse.  You finish it up."
Dr. Meyers:    "You've seen me do this before; you do it.  I need to get back to my [golf] game.  It’s just like stitching up at purse."

Nurse is astonished that Dr. Meyers leaves and expects her to complete the operation.
Anesthesiologist:    “That asshole…you are doing a find job nurse.  You have more experience than I do with this.  You can do it.”
Nurse:    “I wish that Dr. Meyers did not have so much clout here.  I would kick him out on his ass.”
Nurse:    “Well, it won't be pretty, but it will hold.  God, look at this slice.  I've never seen an incision this big for an appendectomy.  If Meyers would have let Adams operate this would have been done hours ago and correctly.”
Obviously, this is an extreme example of an incompetent, unethical doctor.   Of course, most doctors do not conduct themselves in this manner.  However, many doctors are not aware of how their choice of dialogue can serve as suggestive commands affecting their client’s well-being.  Their patient's unconscious mind assumes the dialogue as being their own.

The doctor mentioned in this case study is believed to be dead.  My client reports he seemed to be in his late sixties at the time of the surgery.  Jack is 47 years of age now and currently still in therapy.

Further PLT sessions have revealed a multitude of lifetimes of victimization, both as victim and victimizer.   A previous PLT session revealed Jack was stabbed in the stomach in a former lifetime, just as he was 'butchered' in the operating room by someone who unnecessarily left him with a 12 inch scar.  Note: Most appendectomy incisions are least half this size.  Also, this doctor risked his patient's life by arriving late and intoxicated for surgery.  

Jack was able to become conscious of the details of this surgery and resolve suggestive commands associated with it through a process known as 'reframing.'  As a result, Jack has realized that alcohol is not necessary to get through life's challenges as was the case during this trauma.  The smell of the doctor’s alcohol-ridden breath and the drugs provided for the operation to feel 'numb and warm' no longer need to be associated with his survival.

Although his childhood surgery was a botched procedure, he survived this event.  This is what he will unconsciously remember until reframed: I need crisis in order to survive.  A general theme in Jack’s life in which he continually attracts incompetent, abrasive, and selfish individuals for it fits his unconscious, survival script.

As a result of PLT, Jack’s unconscious mind should no longer associate drugs with 'getting through things' as was the case during his surgery.  This particular therapy session was concluded with having Jack ‘counting up’ (8, 9, 10..) form the altered state of his surgery re-experienced in session.  The ‘counting down’ (10, 9, 8..) technique is not necessary during surgery or hypnosis but is commonly practiced.  It was reframed, since it could be contributing to Jack’s self-diagnosed depression.  He also chose to reframe the surgical staff’s dialogue of 'he's in bad shape ' to ‘I’m in good shape.”   

Jack will likely need further therapy to resolve other issues, but for now he reports reduced cravings and abstinence of alcohol and an improved body image and mental outlook.   Jack will now begin the process of consciously directing his life rather than his unconscious mind overpowering him with survival-based dialogue and unresolved traumas.

Note to surgical staff and those considering a future surgical procedure:

Using earplugs or headphones playing music as an attempt to distort or prevent dialogue from being heard in surgery is not an effective solution.  In fact, it may make it worse for the surgical staff may assume the client is not recording their conversations and speak unnecessary personal dialogue.  The unconscious mind does not utilize just the ears to record.  The mind and soul absorb all the words and actions of an unconscious event even if the client is blindfolded or has earplugs.  It is imperative that the surgical staff only speak words that are necessary and pertain to the surgical-related task.

PLT sessions should begin several weeks or months before a surgery.  PLT can prepare a client for their procedure by processing the emotional aspects of their upcoming surgery.  Therapy can finish unresolved victim-victimizer issues still present prior to surgery in order to avoid bringing unconscious victim-victimizer commands to the operating table.  Please review other PLTC cases involving surgery and its affects, especially those about circumcisions, tonsillectomies, plastic surgeries, etc.

Other examples of surgical dialogue affecting a client post-surgery, which can be resolved with PLT:

A surgeon trains interns with verbal observations: "She looks dead,"or "She must be in a lot of pain," or "She is not going to get through this; she may not survive" can contribute to mood disorders (looks dead interpreted as feels dead), chronic pain, or avoiding new projects or challenges assuming "she is not going to get through/survive."

A surgical staff member may point to a man's penis and say, "Look at that little thing; he couldn't satisfy anyone with that" or "I wonder if it works," which could cause the client to develop sexual dysfunction including impotence or self-image issues.    
A surgeon says, "He'll have a long, painful recovery" or "She'll feel pain the rest of her life" are unnecessary comments which can prolong suffering and inhibit healing; Past Life Therapy Center can enable resolution of this confusion and promote wellness.
