A.L. Ward, author of The Inner Mind, The Inner Mind Revisited: Researching the Soul, Heaven, The Road Back Home, and Phenomenal Expressions of Hypnotism, is a highly acclaimed experienced Hypnotist, Healer and Instructor with a 56-year track record. His contribution to a massive research project proved that hypnosis corrected 'non-medically responsive' health problems and that a universally consistent pattern of negative emotions caused the physical deficiencies.
He was born in Tarkio, Missouri, on April 14, 1923. He was educated in schools in Nebraska and California. He served with the Navy on the aircraft carrier Intrepid from 1944-1945. On returning home he obtained a commercial pilots license with a flight instructors rating. He joined the San Bernardino California Police Department in 1955 and retired in 1980. Following retirement he earned a California State College teaching credential in Law Enforcement Forensic Investigation from 1982-1987.
A police investigation led him to several years of study with a master hypnotist, and he was one of the first to use this science in police service. He has lectured on hypnosis, regression therapy, and other mind dynamics at schools, colleges, service clubs and private organizations, and has appeared several times on television. In 1996 the National Guild of Hypnotists honored him with the Ormond McGill award for presenter of the year and is Board Certified. In 2003, the International Hypnosis Federation presented him with an Award of Excellence. In 2006, they presented him with a Lifetime Achievement Award.
He was selected to assist in the Parks Research and Education Project from 1977 through 1980. This research explored the use of hypnosis in documented medical problems that were not responding to orthodox medical procedures. From this research he developed a method of exploring the origin, cause, and the solution of any physical, emotional or spiritual deficiency in a matter of minutes.
On a personal note, Mr. Ward married Agnes McCoy in Redlands, California in 1940. They had 2 children and lived a full life until her death in 2008, after 69 years of marriage.
His most recent Honor:
The Order of Braid, which he was honored to receive in 2011, is an international honor society for hypnotism named after the 19th century Scottish surgeon who first devised the word “hypnotism.” Persons are inducted into the Order of Braid in recognition of a lifetime of service to professional hypnotism.
His memberships include:
