Remarkable Healings: Spirit Releasement Therapy
Dr Modi is a psychiatrist, who followed in Baldwin’s footsteps. Her book gives many accounts of past life and spirit release therapy. She breaks new ground in her handling of soul fragmentation, for she reports that soul parts are often taken captive by demons which torture or otherwise manipulate them in Hell. This view, so far as I know, is not held by other leaders in the field. Modi analyses her case material, finding that spirit releasement and soul integration relieve emotional and psychotic symptoms in 80% of cases, while physical symptoms are relieved in 70% by past life therapy. There is no index, but an excellent bibliography. The book contains many case histories, with much to interest therapists.” ~Alan Sanderson
If we can imagine God as one body, then we are like different cells and parts of that body of God. When any part of that body hurts, the whole body hurts. Similarly, when we hurt any other person, we hurt ourselves as well. We must treat each other with love and care in order to preserve the whole. Love is the most powerful source in the universe. When we give love we also receive it and as it moves back and forth, it grows and provides the healing for everybody involved. Only love can heal, and it is the only thing that really matters.
by Dr. Shakuntala Modi, M.D.
When I was doing my psychiatric residency, there were times when I felt very discouraged because there was no single treatment that worked for every patient. Medication works, but not in every patient; and it can make some patients more dysfunctional because of the side effects. Traditional talk therapy helps only a small percentage of patients. I saw patients who suffered for years, going from doctor to doctor and from hospital to hospital, searching for relief from their symptoms.
During my residency, I strived to learn different types of available treatment methods. I learned individual psychotherapy, family therapy, group therapy, psychodrama, transactional analysis, hypnosis, and hypnotherapy so I could use these various techniques with different patients to suit their needs for healing.
Medication, in some cases, does correct the chemical imbalance in the brain; in other cases, however, it just pushes the problems back into the subconscious and covers them up. The patient feels better temporarily but the problems continue to surface. More and more medication is required over a long period, restricting patients day-to-day functioning. In some cases, patients become addicted to these medications, creating additional problems.
With talk therapy, whether individual, family, or group, patients deal with only the conscious mind. They relate to the reasons of which they are aware, consciously and intellectually. As a result, months and years of talk therapy can work to some extent, but this is only a Band-Aid approach. The problems keep recurring.
Traditional talk therapy has its successes; it also has its failures. Unfortunately, the number of failures in any given period far exceeds the number of successes. Even when augmented by psychotropic medications, the success rate of traditional talk therapy remains low.
Dismayed by the lack of success of traditional talk therapies, I decided to utilize other techniques, especially hypnotherapy, in combination with the traditional talk therapies. Hypnosis allows patients to uncover the underlying subconscious reasons for their emotional and physical problems. The unresolved problems are brought from the subconscious mind to the conscious mind. By recalling, reliving, releasing, understanding, and resolving the unresolved traumas and issues, patients can be freed from their longstanding problems in just a few sessions. Very little or no medication is required and the time involved is relatively short. I have used hypnosis effectively for insomnia, anxiety, habit control, pain control, positive suggestions for day-to-day functioning, and in hypnotherapy to uncover the underlying problems to help people.
Over the years of my psychiatric practice, I always felt good about the quality of my work and the results I had with my patients. I was able to help people with combinations of treatment modalities depending on the patients‟ needs. But still, at times, there were patients for whom I could not do much except use medications and supportive psychotherapy. I continued to search for ways to help my patients.
About eleven years ago, I saw Martha, a thirty-four-year-old housewife and mother of three children who was suffering from a longstanding claustrophobia, which crippled her daily life. The problem was getting worse and as a result she was becoming severely depressed and at times suicidal.
She had severe panic attacks, several times a day, every day. During these panic attacks she had difficulty breathing, palpitations, dizziness, feelings of intense fear and apprehension, and fear of dying. I began to treat her with medication and traditional talk therapy. These helped her to some extent, but her claustrophobia and panic attacks continued.
During a session, I asked her about the last time she had a panic attack. All of a sudden she became anxious and said, “Doctor, I am having one right now” and she started to gasp for breath.
I asked her to close her eyes, focus on her emotional and physical feelings, and allow those feelings to take her back to another time, to the source of her problems when she felt the same way. Martha slipped into a self-induced trance state. I thought she would probably remember a childhood incident when she was being locked in a closet, attic, bathroom, or other small room from where she could not get out.
Instead, she said she was in a different time, different life, and in a different body as a young girl. “I am in a coffin,” Martha cried. “They think I am dead! They are closing the lid. I am afraid to die but what if they close the lid of the coffin and I do not die? Then what am I going to do?”
I was taken by complete surprise, but I let her continue the story and release the emotions associated with it. When she came out of this self-induced trance, she looked puzzled but relaxed. I did not know what to make of that session. To my surprise, her panic attacks disappeared right after the session. In the next session she reported that she was free of her crippling claustrophobia, depression, and panic attacks.
I was pleasantly surprised. I had not had such a miraculous result before. Many thoughts went through my mind. I wondered if any other psychiatrist or psychologist had similar occurrences where a patient spontaneously regressed to a past life and had such dramatic results.
None of my patients had ever before regressed to another life. I had heard of an accidental regression into a past life during a hypnosis conference and had seen a person being regressed to a past life on TV. I found the concept interesting, but I had not thought of utilizing it in the treatment of my patients.
I was impressed with Martha’s cure. I started to search for literature on the subject of past life regression. To my surprise, there were many books written on the subject. There were many psychologists, psychotherapists, hypnotherapists, and a few psychiatrists who were using what they called “Past Life Regression Therapy.”
I was upset with myself, thinking, “Where was I all this time? Why didn’t I find out about it before?” I began to utilize this method in combination with other traditional therapies, often with fast and dramatic success in relieving patients‟ crippling symptoms.
What amazed me even more was that later, while working with other patients with claustrophobia, “being buried alive” is one of the most common themes presented by my patients and by recalling, reliving, releasing, and understanding the event, they were free of their symptoms too.
I realized that past life regression is an extension of age regression, only it takes the patient back into another life to a traumatic event that caused the problems in the current life.
Another patient, Connie, suffered from asthma. She also could not stand anything close to her neck. Under hypnosis, I asked her to move back in time to the source of her problems. She instantly found herself regressed to the time of her birth. The cord was wrapped around her neck and she could not breathe.
During the next session, Connie told me that her asthma was better but she still could not wear anything around her neck. I asked her, again under hypnosis, to go to the source of her problem and she found herself in another time and another life, when she was a man who was hanged. After releasing the emotions and the physical feelings associated with being hanged, she was completely free of her asthma and was able to wear necklaces and button her blouse all the way up to her neck.
I found that when I ask patients, under hypnosis, to “go to the source of the problem,” they find themselves going to a trauma in the present life at a younger age or at the time of birth or in the womb. At other times they find themselves regressing to another time and another life. I realized that a person’s subconscious mind often has the answers to his or her problems and if I allow the patient to recall, relive, release, and resolve it, he or she can be free of the symptoms.
This realization marked the beginning of an exciting journey, looking deep into the subconscious and seeking the reasons for mental illnesses. I began to understand that there are several sources of patients’ problems, i.e., present-life traumas, including birth traumas and traumas in the womb, and also traumas from one or more past lives. The process is like an onion: we need to remove the reasons for the problems layer by layer.
My Discovery of the Earthbound Spirit (Entity)
After Martha was regressed into her past life to find the source of her claustrophobia, I began to use past life regression therapy effectively for treating patients with emotional and physical problems.
One day Breana, a fifty-year-old female, came to me for treatment of depression and chronic abdominal pains, which she had suffered off and on for several years. Her physical examination, laboratory tests, and gastroscopy were all normal. She wanted to try hypnotherapy to see what was causing her abdominal pain.
Under hypnosis, when I asked her to go back to the source of her abdominal pain, she found herself in another time and another life. When patients find themselves in another life, I usually ask for identifying information, such as the name, age, sex, what year it is, and what country they are in. When I asked Breana these questions she said, “I am a fifty-five-year-old white male, I live in Pittsburgh, and this is 1974.”
I realized that this information could not be correct because Bream was fifty years old and was born before 1974. So it could not be her past life. I asked Breana to check again and see what was going on. She became emotional and said, “This is my father John. He died in 1974 of stomach cancer. His spirit is here with me and I can see him clearly.” I was very surprised. While reading different literature on past life regression therapy, I had noticed Irene Hickman, D.O., mention in her book, Mind Probe Hypnosis, about the spirits of deceased people possessing her patient, but till now I had never come across one.
I was curious about why and how he came into Breana. So I asked him the following questions.
Dr. Modi: “John, why are you here?”
John: “I love my daughter. After my death, she was having problems so I came in to help her.”
Dr. Modi: “How have you helped her.”
John: “Not much; she does not even know I am here. She is suffering with my stomach pain because I died of stomach cancer, but she thinks it is her pain.”
Dr. Modi: “Tell me, exactly how did you come in?”
John: “After my body died, she was sad. I just came in to comfort her but then I couldn’t leave her. I got stuck here.”
Dr. Modi: “Since you are here, look inside her, and tell me who else is there.”
John: “There are many people here inside her, but I do not know who they are.”
Breana could not recognize them either. They were strangers. I wondered what to do with these spirits of different people in her. During past life regression therapy, my patients had often reported seeing angels and their departed loved ones in the bright white Light coming to help them after the death of their physical bodies. So I asked John to look up and tell me what he saw.
John [surprised]: “I see a bright white Light filling the entire room and my deceased mother in it wearing a white flowing gown. She does not look sick or old as she was when she died. She is smiling and asking me to come with her. There are also many beautiful angels in the Light.”
John and the spirits of other people who were inside Breana were sent into the Light with John’s mother and angels, after saying goodbye to Breana. After the session, Breana and I were both surprised. Bream was very emotional about seeing her father and grandmother. On one hand, she was sad, but on the other hand she felt happy and at peace, knowing that they were really not dead and that they both were in heaven. Breana had no doubts whatsoever about what she saw during the session. She did not think that she was making it up.
During the next session, Breana reported that she was free of her longstanding depression and stomach problems. She recalled that her father had cancer of the stomach and he had been very depressed after he learned of it.
I was surprised to find that spirits of deceased people can come on board in patients and affect them physically and emotionally. Many questions ran through my mind. Breana’s father and the other people in her were they real or was she fantasizing about him because she missed him? Maybe this was her way of grieving and letting go of her father? But why the strangers? And if it was all her fantasy, then how was it that her longstanding depression and stomachache were completely relieved after that session?
If the spirits were real then why was it that none of my patients ever reported them before? Could it be there were spirits in other patients too, but we had not recognized theirs? I did not know. All I knew was that my patient was free of her longstanding symptoms in just one session, and that was good enough for me.
After that session, many of my patients, under hypnosis, reported having spirits of deceased people inside there. Some they knew and some they did not. Releasing the spirits released their emotional, mental, and physical symptoms in just a few sessions. Sometimes in just one or two hypnotherapy sessions patients’ long standing psychological and physical symptoms started to disappear.
About one and one-half years after I began to work with these earthbound spirits, a psychologist, Edith Fiore, published a book, The Unquiet Dead, which had information and techniques similar to those given by my hypnotized patients.
I do not know whether these spirits are real or not, or if my patients’ subconscious minds made up these fantastic stories. It really does not matter to me. All I know is that releasing these so-called spirits relieved my patients of their symptoms. As a psychiatrist working with patients who are suffering with their psychological and physical symptoms, results are more important than the proof.
My Accidental Discovery of the Demon Spirit (Entity)
A few months later, I was surprised and shocked when a patient under hypnosis told me that he had a demon inside his head. It would perhaps be logical for a person raised in the American culture to describe his problem as being demon-caused because of cultural and religious beliefs; but I was at a loss. How do you deal with a demon? The only exposure I had was through the movie The Exorcist and my patient was not acting and behaving like the character portrayed in that movie.
This patient, Nick, a thirty-five-year-old man, had a history, of frequent migraine headaches since he was a teenager. He also described suffering from depression and chronic fatigue for several years. I explained to Nick about hypnotherapy and the different reasons my patients in the past have given for their physical and emotional problems, including the problems caused by the current and past life traumas and the earthbound spirits. Nick was willing to try it.
As we began the session, Nick started to experience severe headaches. I asked him to look inside his head and tell me what he saw. As Nick looked inside his head he said he saw nothing except darkness. As he continued to focus on the darkness inside his head, he said that it was kind of moving around and it looked like a black blob. I thought there might be an earthbound spirit in his head trying to hide, as I had found this phenomenon many times in the past with other patients. So I tried to communicate with the one who was moving in his head. The following is the transcript of what happened.
Entity in Nick’s head: “I am a foul one. Why do you want to bother with me?”
Dr. Modi [in an effort to establish a dialogue with the entity]: “Tell me, are you a male or a female?”
Entity [arrogantly]: “Why would I want to be a human?”
Dr. Modi [surprised]: “What do you mean? If you are not human, then who are you?”
Entity [laughing arrogantly]: “I am a demon. I am a disciple of Satan. He is my master and he sent me to torture this person.”
I was shocked and surprised. The only change I saw in Nick was a change in the tone of his voice and angry expressions and arrogance on his face. Nick normally spoke softly and was gentle and polite. At this point the only logical step, it seemed to me, was to continue the dialogue to find out more about this so-called demon.
Dr. Modi: “How old was Nick when you joined him?”
Entity: “Fifteen, when this dumb kid was using drugs. This opened him up and I came in.”
Dr. Modi: “You said you are here to torture Nick. How did you torture him?”
Entity [laughing]: “Now lady, why do you think he is having the headaches? I am doing it. I also siphon his energy so he feels tired and drained all the time. I can create any type of problem for him. It is fun.”
As this so-called demon talked more, Nick’s headaches became worse. Nick stated that the whole room was filled with brilliant white Light and many angelic beings were there. He saw the angelic beings surrounding this black being, the so-called demon in his head, with the Light. The being was reacting very violently to the Light and screaming, “Take this Light away from me. It will destroy me; it will kill me.”
Nick described the dark being like a fish in a net of Light struggling to get out. At this point Nick was holding his head because of the severe splitting headache he was experiencing.
Totally amazed at what was going on, I continued.
Dr. Modi: “What is happening?”
Entity [upset]: “This Light, it is burning me and now it will kill me. We are told by Satan never to go close to the Light because it is death. If Light does not kill me, Satan sure will, because I failed. He sounded very scared and angry. I do not want to fail. I do not want to be punished by Satan again.”
Dr. Modi: “What do you mean by, ‘you failed?”
Entity: “We are not supposed to fail in our jobs. If we fail, then Satan punishes us by torturing us in a worse way.”
Dr. Modi: “How did you fail?”
Entity: “You located me, which is considered failure by Satan, and now this Light!”
Nick described that the angels were pressing and squeezing the black entity with the Light and they were asking the entity to look inside itself. The entity, still struggling with the Light and squirming around in a helpless way, started to look inside itself and screamed, “What is it?”
Dr. Modi [not knowing what the entity was talking about]: “I don’t know. You tell me what is happening.”
Entity: “I see this star, this diamond of Light in me. How is it possible? I am a black, ugly thing. [scared] And now it is growing and consuming me. My darkness is disappearing. What is happening to me? Am I going to die? [silence] I look like them, the angels. I am all Light, but do not feel dead. [surprised and excited] I feel different. I feel good. I do not remember feeling this way before.”
Nick watched in amazement and confirmed what was happening. As the entity looked inside itself and found the spark of Light, even Nick could see the Light in the black demon and said that as the Light grew, the darkness started to dissipate almost like magic until the entity totally changed into the Light. According to Nick, the entity looked like a being of pure Light, like an angel, after its transformation.
Not only the entity but Nick and I also were shocked and surprised while trying to absorb all that happened. Nick was even more surprised to realize that his splitting headache had vanished completely after the entity was transformed into the Light.
The Transformed demon described experiencing feelings of peace and joy that it never felt before. The being mentioned how Satan deceived and lied to it and all the other demons about the Light. It expressed sadness that it had caused damage to Nick and to humanity from the beginning of the time.
At this point, Nick said angels were saying that this transformed entity was a being of the Light and it needed to go back to the Light (heaven). Nick described how loving and accepting these angels were toward that transformed being. There was no judgment or condemnation from them. Before leaving, that transformed being apologized to Nick for causing all the problems and thanked me for helping it. Then Nick said that the angels took that being into the Light through a large gate which he believed was heaven.
He also saw angels cleansing, healing, and filling with the Light the space in his head where the demon was. The next week, Nick reported being free of depression and headaches and was feeling more energetic.
I did not know what to make of that session except that Nick was free of his headaches, chronic fatigue, and depression. Traditional psychotherapy and medication had not given this type of miraculous result before.
My mind was filled with many questions. Was that demon, which Nick described in his head, real or a figment of his imagination? Maybe his subconscious mind made up this fantastic story so he would not have to be responsible for his problems. But if it was just his fantasy or a figment of his imagination, how could this session totally cure his longstanding crippling headaches and depression? But then I realised that it did not matter. What really mattered was that Nick was free of his problems.
Later, I was even more surprised to find that other therapists discovered similar information and techniques with their patients and had similar results. It proved to be an extremely effective method in curing patients’ psychological and physical problems.
My patients, under hypnosis, also reported that with the physical and emotional traumas, their souls fragmented into many pieces, causing the weakness of their souls and thus of their bodies, leading to different symptoms. These soul parts can remain in the body as an inner child or leave the body and go to different people and places. Locating and integrating these soul parts caused a great deal of improvement in their conditions.
Over the years, I have come to realize that the formal induction of hypnosis is not necessary for locating and releasing spirits. Some patients can just look inside and see, while with others, somatic and affect bridge techniques can help to locate an entity inside. Just by looking in and focusing on the entity or their feelings, patients slip into a self-induced state of hypnosis.
Over the years, different sources and reasons for patients’ emotional and physical problems unfolded before me. I developed further insights into their treatment and prevention. I realized that neither the patient nor the therapist has to believe in past lives or spirits for the treatment to work. I found that we the psychiatrists and other mental health professionals have a limited understanding about the true nature and causes of mental illness. I learned to keep my mind open and continue to ask questions and stay away from providing my interpretations. I understand that the patient’s subconscious mind not only has the knowledge of the reasons for his problems but can also provide solutions and even the healing.
After many years of receiving similar information over and over from a cross-section of my hypnotized patients, I felt compelled to write about this mind-bending knowledge. What you are about to read is by no means offered as proof of anything. You may believe or disbelieve what you read in this book except for one thing: this approach to therapy works.
In this book, the words possession and attachment are used synonymously. Similarly, spirit, entity, and soul are used synonymously.
The word Light is used synonymously for God, for heaven, and for the emanation of Light coming from heaven.
The contents of this book make some startling revelations and may upset some readers. You may experience some physical and emotional reactions, anger, and difficulty in concentration while reading this book. In my experience, these are often the signs of having one or more spirits inside a person. My aim is not to cause any fear or to discourage you from reading this book. On the contrary, my aim is to educate you about these earthbound and demon spirits and explain to you that having them with you is not the end of your world. Releasing them is not difficult and can free people from their longstanding physical and psychological symptoms, sometimes in only a few sessions.
These symptoms are usually the problems of the possessing or attached spirits, which they experienced while they were living in their physical bodies; usually due to their death experiences. These problems are transferred over to their host, who in turn may begin to experience them.
According to my experience and my research, most of the acute psychological and psychosomatic symptoms for which patients are seeking help are due to these possessing spirits within them. These are not the patients‟ symptoms to begin with and no medication, psychotherapy, and medical treatment can permanently cure them. As long as these spirits remain within them, they will continue to suffer with their symptoms. Only by releasing these unwanted guest spirits can people be free of their debilitating symptoms. By reading this book, you can gain more knowledge about these spirits, how to free yourself from them, and how to remain free of them.
The subject of “demon spirits” is perhaps the most delicate in the book and potentially the most misunderstood. How many times have we said or heard the following phrases? “The Devil made me do it.” “He is wrestling with his demons.” “She acts like she’s possessed.” “He’s behaving like a devil.” What we view as mere figures of speech, my patients tell me, have a real basis in fact. There are truly dark forces, they say, which influence our emotions and our behavior, which we innocently assume as our own feelings and behavior. We all wrestle with demons quite often all our lives. According to my hypnotized patients, the things that are wrong with us mentally and physically, in our society, and in the world, are often caused by these dark spirits.
Releasing demon spirits is not a religious exercise. It does not require adherence to any specific religious belief or practice. It is not the traditional exorcism as it is practiced by the Roman Catholic Church.
Exorcism is a religious ritual marked by the forceful expulsion of a demon entity. It is confrontive, wrenching, and physically and emotionally exhausting to the exorcist and the subject. It directs judgment upon the entity itself, damning it and casting it out of the subject. It can be grabbed by Satan and punished brutally, it can go to another host, or it can return to the person from whom it was cast out.
Releasement, on the other hand, is practiced with compassion for the entity. The demon entity is treated as a secondary patient. My hypnotized patients report that demons are fallen angels, tricked and trapped by Satan, and are in intense pain. Releasement is practiced with care for that pain. While the therapist must sometimes take a firm stand in getting the entity to talk, to identify itself, at no time does the therapist make negative statements to the entity. There is no judgment by the therapist, by the patient, or ultimately by the beings of Light (heaven) to whom the demon returns after it is transformed into the Light.
The terms Satan and demons may offend or upset some readers. I personally like to call these beings “dark spirits,” “dark beings,” or “negative energies,” because of their dark appearance and negative actions. But, because this book deals with the information given by my hypnotized patients as accurately as possible, it would be false and misleading to refer to these dark beings by my own labels. Instead, I address them as they are named by my patients consistently as “Satan” and “demons.” None of the information written in this book is based on any religion or spirituality. It is based only on the information reported by my hypnotized patients.
It is important to clarify that having earthbound or demon spirits does not mean that a person is evil. Because of our human frailty, every one of us is open for possession and indeed may have been possessed at some point in our lives.
This book, when viewed with an open mind, can provide lay readers and professionals alike with an explanation of psychological and physical problems and human behavior. It will also give a profoundly expanded understanding of life in its broadest sense, impact the rest of your life. What you will read will dispel any fear of death, knowing that we really do not die with the death of the physical body. It can provide hope to those who are sick and in despair. It can change lives, rearrange priorities, and put “the details” of living in their proper perspective.
