Mak holds Third Quantum Hypnosis Public Demo Session

Published

on

Some may call it unconventional others holistic/alternative. But what is Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT)?  This alternative therapy uses the power of mind to heal the physical body.  In a deeply relaxed somnambulistic trance, the person allows the Conscious Mind to step aside for a while so as to gain access to the Higher Self/ Subconscious. The Higher Self brings forward appropriate times and places of incidents in the most elegant and graceful way, allowing all these different parts to merge together to afford wonderful insights, thereby aiding evolution in the present life.

Quantum Healing Hypnosis sessions are conducted at the Counseling and Guidance Centre, Makerere University by Mr. Louis Kakinda, a certified QHHT practitioner and  Assistant Lecturer in the College of Education and External Studies (CEES). Services offered include prayer and healing which lasts between 20 to 90 minutes and QHHT which lasts between 2 to 5 hours. Sessions are held on Wednesdays Thursdays and Fridays but bookings are essential.

The third Quantum Healing Hypnosis Therapy (QHHT) public demonstration session was held on Thursday 24th April 2014. The discussion was between angels and humans and topics for discussion were on the political situation in Uganda, spirituality and religious confusion, health and the nature of disease and humanity and its transition.

A young female volunteer was made to lie on a bed and was covered with a bed sheet. Mr. Kakinda then proceeded to hypnotize the volunteer into the subconscious state. Everyone in the room was asked to keep quiet and maintain silence in order to allow the volunteer to relax and for the angels to enter her subconscious. The volunteer was told to go to the temple of the presence and asked if she could see some angels. Mr. Kakinda then confirmed that six angels had appeared. These angels were Edwin, Jennifer, Juliet, Sam and two unnamed angels.

The audience was told that only one angel, Edwin could speak. Once confirmation had been received that Edwin had entered the volunteer’s subconscious, the floor was opened to the audience for questions. People started off with personal questions most of which were a chance to see a glimpse of the future. These questions ranged from health and career concerns to relationships, spirituality, and personal challenges. Some of the questions included “Will I get married?” “Why am I having constant headaches?” “Will my business prosper?” About three quarters of the session was spent on personal questions as the moderator kept trying to bring the discussion back to the day’s planned topics for discussion. The subconscious/angel seemed to have answers to most the questions. However a few questions were left unanswered.  Is this therapy the magic bullet humanity has been looking for?

If you had a chance to attend one of these sessions, what would you ask? What would you hope to hear? How would you feel about it if it wasn’t what you expected? Would you change your life to what the subconscious prescribes or just keep things going as usual?

There are a growing number of people in Uganda seeking alternative approaches. Alternative therapies such as QHHT are being used to treat everything from colds and headaches to hypertension and cancer. With studies showing that four out of five Ugandans seek care from traditional healers, what role do these alternative therapies play in conventional medicine? Is the gap between conventional medicine and alternative therapies widening or can these two co-exist?

Should you choose to seek help from an alternative therapist, it is important to tell your doctor and your alternative therapist of all the drugs and treatments you take. This is because alternative therapy treatments can sometimes interact with prescription drugs and cause side effects.

By Agnes Namaganda

On July 22nd 2022, Makerere UniversityChild Health and Development Centre (MakCHDC) launched a draft manual for the National Parenting Standards. The Centre has been working together with the Ministry of Gender, Labour and Social Development (MGLSD) with funding from UNICEF (United Nations Children’s Emergency Fund), to develop standards that are agreeable to all organisations in the country that are involved in parenting work. The draft manual was being presented to members of a consortium that brings together all these organisations together, called the Parenting Agenda Consortium.

“We produce many documents and they are shelved,” Irene Ayot Chono, who was speaking on behalf of UNICEF said. “We hope that this document will not be one of them,” she emphasized.

Dr. Godfrey Siu, the Principal Investigator from Mak-CHDC who presented the draft manual to participants, emphasized that if any organization is doing parenting work, there should be a minimum package that they should offer.

Draft Manual Content

The manual which will have several modules. These modules will be delivered face-to-face in 1.5 hour sessions. Some of these include; Module 6 which will focus on “understanding responsible masculinity and fatherhood” and on “understanding the concept of head of family.”The draft manual also proposed that Module 11 focuses on Parenting in the 21st Century. Some of the sessions in this module will include Children and Technology, Contemporary Influence on Children and Modernity, Culture and Morality.Module 9 will focus on Parenting for Adolescents and some of the suggested sessions within this module are Needs for Adolescents and The Art of Communicating with Adolescents. Module 5 will focus on Preventing Violent Parenting and Promoting Alternative Discipline Strategies while Module 10 will be about Parenting to Address the Mental Health for Children and Adults.

Participants’ suggestions

After the presentation, participants raised several suggestions for discussion and consideration. These included whether there should be a module on spirituality since Uganda is a strongly religious nation. There was also the concern of how children in remand homes should be parented. Another concern raised by a participant was as to whether teachers who make an undeniable contribution to parenting, should be taken through the parenting manual.
