Work with Shomit
“I am not a mechanism, an assembly of various sections. And it is not because the mechanism is working wrongly, that I am ill. I am ill because of wounds to the soul, to the deep emotional self.”
— D.H. Lawrence
We would all live the life of our dreams if it weren’t for the scars of the wounds we carry. The problem with wounds is not just that they hurt us at the time but that they instil fear in us in the long term. The fear causes us to tighten up and, as a result, we keep almost everything out, including the good things that we want in our lives but may be too afraid to pursue.
The solution is two-fold. First, the wound has to be re-visited to be released. This may seem daunting but it is in fact a very beautiful and reassuring experience. The key is to reach and treat the wounded sub-personality which was formed at the time of the original trauma. The sub-personality is usually enclosed in an obsessive cocoon in which the original trauma is replayed repeatedly. The exercise involves entering the cocoon and, in effect, waking up the sub-personality and making him or her aware that the traumatic experience is actually in the past. This is of course obvious to the client’s conscious mind – but, curiously, this is not at all obvious to the sub-personality who has been locked inside the bubble of fear ever since the trauma occurred. The release is then similar to that of a person who is locked inside a nightmare. While they are dreaming, they are totally consumed by their imagined fears. But when they are woken up, they step into a different reality – the reality of their bedroom perhaps, which is clearly distinct from the reality of the nightmare. They realise they were just dreaming – and are therefore released from the terrors of the nightmare. Similarly, when the traumatized sub-personality is released from the reality of the trauma, they step into a separate reality and stop seeing the world through the eye of the past.

“ Shomit is an extraordinary man, truly unique; every session I’ve had with him has left me feeling happy, uplifted and focused. Seeing him every week for me is a joy, he gives me tools that are easy to use in everyday life. Through meeting him my confidence and self belief have reached new heights and my relationships have healthy boundaries. I cannot recommend this very special man highly enough: he is caring, compassionate, warm, intuitive, and so very bright – you can talk to him about anything and there is nothing that he doesn’t know about or know how to handle.”
Of course, it is not enough simply to take away the troubled past; one also has to create a positive future. The second stage of the work therefore involves doing a series of visualisations that instil a deep-seated sense of the qualities – like confidence or focus or calm – that Shomit feels the client would benefit from having. The reason the visualisations work is that they communicate directly with the unconscious (through the use of light hypnosis) in the language of the unconscious (which is the language of image and metaphor). The conscious mind may think this is absurd – but that is of no consequence because, under hypnosis, the only thing that matters is what the unconscious thinks – and of course the unconscious understands the message perfectly because it is communicated through an image. The unconscious is a mammoth resource that can achieve whatever we ask it to achieve, provided we issue an instruction with clarity and power. And that is just what a session with Shomit involves.
The combination of regression and visualisation is very powerful. By repeatedly taking away layers of trauma – and instilling a range of powerful capabilities – the reality of the client changes. In a process that clients often refer to as “magic” (but is really perfectly logical), the client begins to notice that the world is behaving differently: things that were once difficult gradually become easy. Fear gradually eases into comfort and comfort into relief and joy. This is deep, strong work, yet remarkably easy to do. A must for anyone who has suffered – and feels blocked as a result.
“Shomit started working with me at a time when I was disillusioned with my working life as an accountant. I dreaded going into work, I was not enjoying my role and I had very little disposable income. It was always a dream of mine to start my own business but at the relatively young age of 25 it seemed like an impossible feat. Shomit tackled the root of the problem which lay in my personal life and helped me believe in myself and find the courage to make the life changing decision of leaving a job which I had worked so hard and so long to get.
Today I am in a position that I could not have imagined 5 years ago, I have a showroom in West London selling high end luxury vehicles to customers all around the world and have experienced excellent growth in the business. I feel I always had the potential to do this, however it is only the work that I done with Shomit and the power of manifestation that pushed me to do it. It wasn’t smooth sailing once the business was set up, I experienced many hurdles which could have potentially closed the business down, however Shomit helped in analysing why these problems were arising at a higher level and how I had to work on myself to resolve them. Business is not for the faint hearted and had I not worked with Shomit on the development of my character I would have easily been swallowed up and spat out by a ruthless auto industry. I still have a long way to go but I know if I continuously better myself with the help of Shomit and the power of manifestation anything is possible. Shomit, I cannot thank you enough for all of your help. ”
Sessions with Shomit last for 60 minutes. The first session is normally just a chat: the client describes his or her situation and Shomit feeds back with what he thinks is happening at the unconscious level and how it can be dealt with. Subsequent sessions alternate between regression work (which takes away the blocks) and meditation exercises (which instil the capabilities – such as confidence, or power, or trust – that the client feels have been lacking).
Shomit helps a range of people – from those who have encountered serious difficulties in their lives, to those who simply want to ‘fly’, to business leaders seeking to discuss the psychological aspects of business management.
