Have you ever been hypnotized?

Have you ever experienced driving on street or freeway and losing your exit because you’re listening to music? Or thinking about your “to-do” list, tomorrow’s meeting or what you’re having for dinner and forgot something else that needed to be done in that moment? Or losing track of time when doing something? For example: reading, shopping, watching TV, etc.?

If you answered “yes” to any of these questions then you’ve experienced a light form of self-hypnosis. You focused your attention to one thing and tuned everything else out!

Hypnosis is not sleep, unlike some people might think!

Hypnosis a certain level of deep relaxation with 100% focused awareness. Your hypnotherapist helps you get to that special level (called Stage Four) and then helps your conscious and subconscious mind communicate in order to find out the “Root” of where the issue/problem/negative belief or behavior you want to change, first began.Then we can “delete” the negative stuff n reprogram u with the positive.



The reason willpower alone doesn’t work is because that’s your conscious mind which only stores 7-9 bits of information. Thats like a mere 20% of all beliefs,behaviors etc.

The subconscious mind however, holds the rest 80 % , which stores all the data you’ve collected during your whole life. Data in your subconscious consists of all the Lifescripting, negative habits, thoughts, beliefs and behaviors you’ve accumulated through your life. You’ve been doing them so far and have been holding yourself back, not getting the results or changes you want to make in your life.

It’s like when you do a detox program: first you have to get all the crap out and then the vitamins you take will help your system function at optimal levels

The method of Hypnotherapy we do is the most advanced and most effective!

It is a results oriented approach and can get your subconscious to release and let go of the old “crap” and then give you the new beliefs, habits and behaviors you need in order to achieve what you want!


What is 5-PATH®?

5-PATH® Hypnosis Charter Member Some hypnotherapists and hypnotists have undergone advanced hypnosis training and certification in 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy. These hypnosis professionals are among some of the most advanced hypnotherapists with whom you can work. Training and certification in 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy allows the hypnotist to go far beyond what most hypnotists can do in a hypnosis session. Here is a quick outline of how these highly trained hypnosis professionals differentiate themselves from all of the rest:
  • You will receive a comprehensive “pre-talk” in which you will learn about hypnosis.
  • You will interact with the hypnotherapist during the “pre-hypnosis interview” during which the hypnotherapist will find out what your goals are, and how best to help you to reach those goals using hypnotherapy and self-hypnosis.
  • Your hypnotherapist will use a modern hypnotic induction (no swinging watches or blinking eyeglasses are used). These modern inductions are fast and efficient allowing them to spend more time with you working on helping you to attain your goals.
  • Your hypnotherapist will ensure that you are going into just the right level of hypnosis for the kind of work you will be doing together. This will be done with covert and overt testing. The covert testing is done by they hypnotist so that he or she will know that you are hypnotized, you probably will not notice this testing being done. Once that has been accomplished he or she will do overt testing to provide you with some objective evidence that you were hypnotized.
  • Your hypnotherapist will customize each session for you. 5-PATH® hypnotherapists know how to match the right inductions, deepening techniques, suggestions and other techniques to each client for maximum results.
  • Your hypnotherapist uses the 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy System. Your work with him or her will not be one of those one-shot deals. You will work together as a team as you go through the process, neutralizing any old limiting beliefs, emotions or habits that have caused you to not be as successful as you would like to be regarding the issues that you want to work on.
  • Your hypnotherapist will go beyond merely suggesting changes and the visualization techniques offered by so many which only bring about limited results. Your 5-PATH® Hypnotherapist has been trained to find the actual cause of the problem and eliminate it, and then give you suggestions for success. This enables our clients to be very successful and experience long term and even permanent results.
  • Your 5-PATH® Hypnotherapist is even able to deal with issues that could be causing problems that you may not have thought of such as internal conflicts. For example, most people who want to make positive changes in their lives also are a bit conflicted by making the changes, like the smoker who wants to stop but is fearful that he or she will miss the cigarette habit or gain weight. Another example is the person who has been abusing alcohol or drugs who fears that if he or she abstains they will be lonely or anxious without the alcohol or drug.
  • Your 5-PATH® Hypnotherapist will take you through each phase of the process, customizing each phase for your needs, making sure that your hypnosis experience is completely professional, confidential and effective.

We hope that this additional information about 5-PATH® Hypnotherapy has been useful for you. When you work with a 5-PATH® Certified hypnotist or hypnotherapist you are working with one of the best trained hypnosis professionals in the world.

What is 5-PATH® and Why Is It So Special?

Yes, you can be more successful in life in just about every way. You can overcome bad habits, increase motivation, have a better memory, be more disciplined, be happier, and get into shape, thanks to two systems now available to you, and provided by specially trained hypnosis professionals.

The 7th Path is a powerful technique for self-hypnosis and reprogramming of one’s subconscious mind. I am amazed by the effectiveness of the 5-PATH approach in Hypnotherapy. Calvin Banyan is the greatest trainer I have come across in my life. He is a true and genuine role model of what he was teaching. Adnan Abdullah, Dip. in School-based Counseling, Retired School Principle, Certified Hypnotherapist – Singapore

The two systems are 5-PATH® and 7th Path Self-Hypnosis (R).  This article answers the question, “What is 5-PATH® and why is it so special?” You will need to go to another source to learn about the very exciting and revolutionary new kind of self-hypnosis named 7th Path™, the insight inducing mind-body-approach to reaching your own highest potential.

My name is Cal Banyan, I have a Master’s Degree in Psychology and I used to be a psychotherapist. I have now moved beyond all of that and specialize exclusively in the use of hypnosis to bring about rapid success. To make a long story short, I was frustrated with the length of time it took to help people using psychological techniques, and often found them totally ineffective, especially when dealing with normal every day people, who want to make significant life changing improvements in their lives. That is when I began studying some of the most powerful methods available to the modern hypnotist. Out of that work and a desire to develop a system that would produce highly effective and reliable results for anyone trained in the system, for a broad range of issues. The result is 5-PATH®.

5-PATH® is an acronym for the true name of the process, Five-Phase Advanced Transformational Hypnosis™. In it I blend the best of psychology and hypnosis.

  • Proven principles from the science of psychology.
  • The most powerful hypnotic techniques and processes.
  • Reliable and effective approach validated around the world.
  • Makes it easy to select the most highly trained and qualified hypnosis professionals.

The roots of 5-PATH® can be traced back to the best known in psychology, medicine and professional hypnotism, including its earliest influences, the “Father of Hypnotism”, Dr. Franz Anton Mesmer, as well as one of the greatest pioneers in the science of psychology such as Dr. Ivan Pavlov. In more modern times we have the psychological scientist, Dr. B. F. Skinner, as well as the renowned hypnotists, Dave Elman, Harry Arons, Gil Boyne, Charles Tebbits, Gerald F. Kein, and others, the former all well known in the science of psychology, and the latter in the profession of hypnotism.

Up until recently, the use of hypnosis for helping people attain their goals was divided among two camps, those in the medical/psychological professions, and those who specialized in hypnosis. I started out in the first group and now live more productively in the second. Now after conducting thousands of sessions, and supervising those who have conducted thousands more, I am confident in saying that 5-PATH® is the most advanced system of hypnotism for personal change in the world. Why is it so special?

Hypnosis professionals who have studied the system rave about it.

I found 5-PATH®, all that I had hope it would be, plus more. Georgina Edleskon-Cooke (Holland), Montego Bay, Jamaica“Tops! one of the Best investments I have made. 7th Path™ went way beyond expectations. – 5 PATH® put depth, and clarity to make my hypnotherapy practice super effective and well consistently yielding excellent results.” Kim Bradford Bothwell, USA

5 PATH® was absolutely terrific! Thanks and well done.” Mitch Nielsen, USA

5-PATH has been a quantum leap in therapeutic possibilities. 7th Path was a surprise, a powerful tool for personal transformation and a wonderful compliment to 5-PATH practice. The power of 7th Path is phenomenal. Cal is an inspirational teacher, it is a joy to be in class.” Lynda Panter, D. Hyp, MBSCH, Gosport, UK

5-PATH® is special because it incorporates the most powerful tools available to the modern hypnosis professional and arranges them in such a way as to increase the effectiveness of each component of the system. It is an optimization of what works, and it is criteria based. That is, they hypnotist using the system is able to apply these advanced hypnotic techniques to a wide variety of issues. This increases both the effectiveness of the hypnotic tool, and also its reliability. This means that each client is able to get more results more quickly than any other system. In fact, as far as I know, there is no other recognized system of hypnosis. 5-PATH® is the only system of hypnotism ever recognized by the National Guild of Hypnotists, and has been officially installed as a Special Interest Group by that world-wide organization of over 10,000 members.

Since this is a system, and can be taught, supervised, evaluated, and contributed to by others, it is an ever improving system, which has been tested and the results validated. Literally thousands of people around the world have benefited by working with 5-PATH® Certified Hypnotherapists/Hypnotists. These highly trained hypnosis professionals are among the most highly trained and qualified hypnotists in the world.

No hypnotist who has ever trained in 5-PATH® would ever settle for anything less than 5-PATH® when seeking hypnosis services for either him or herself, or a member of their families. They know that 5-PATH® trained hypnotists get results when others do not.

By adding 7th Path to 5-PATH, Cal has created a program where not only do you learn the tools to change others, but by the end of the training you have changed yourself. It’s 10 times more powerful than anything else that’s out there!”
Barry Neale, Ph. D,  Essex, UK

So, when you are seeking hypnosis services, only accept a 5-PATH® hypnosis practitioner. When seeking hypnosis services, ask if the hypnotist is 5-PATH® certified.

The elegance of the 5-PATH & 7th Path techniques brings together a lot of what I know, together with a lot I wasn’t aware of, honed to only that which is most effective.
