"Each of us has many, many maps in our head, which can be divided into two main categories: maps of the way things are, or realities, and maps of the way things should be, or values. We interpret everything we experience through these mental maps. We seldom question their accuracy; we’re usually even unaware that we have them. We simply assume that the way we see things is the way they really are or the way they should be... our attitudes and behaviors grow out of those assumptions. The way we see things is the source of the way we think and the way we act... Two people can see the same thing, disagree, and yet both be right."
~Stephen Covey, Author of "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People"

"There is no condition so severe that you cannot reverse it by choosing different thoughts. However, choosing different thoughts requires FOCUS and PRACTICE.
IF you continue to focus as you have been, to think as you have been, and to believe as you have been, then nothing in your experience will change."
#Hypnosis makes it infinitely easier to choose different thoughts...
You can train yourself to see the bright side or find the silver lining in every situation; it’s called “reframing.” An example: My hours were cut at my full time job. My initial thoughts were, “How will I pay my bills? CAN I pay my bills? Should I get a second job?” I also knew I was going to hypnotherapy school come hell or high water, and it wasn’t going to be cheap… After a mild freak out, I naturally began to view the event as an opportunity instead of a setback. I got creative with my money and how I spent it. I trusted that losing 25% of my hours (and my income) was actually in my best interest. And so it was… You can learn how to reframe, too. Hypnosis can help.
I got a short, sweet email from a first-time client’s wife last nite. It read, “I can’t tell you how excited I am! [My husband] came home sounding happier than I’ve heard him sound in a long time. He’s even excited for the next session.”
Knowing I helped someone feel soooo amazing warms my heart; it’s the reason i’m I love with being a hypnotherapist…. So rewarding. So powerful. So EMPOWERING. hypnosis is the bees knees.
At varying points during our childhoods, we make decisions about ourselves that are untrue; we lie to ourselves simply because we don’t know any better. For example, many of us accept the belief that worrying about things outside of our control is a proper, healthy, natural response to stressful situations. This lie causes anxiety in 18% of the American population.
Using age regression and hypnotherapy, I guide my clients into their pasts, accessing memories stored in the subconscious and linked to the roots of limiting beliefs. Once the earliest memory related to that untruth is accessed, I guide the client to essentially rewrite his or her history… I ask them to use their imaginations, and as a team, we tell the subconscious a new story; I invite them to tell themselves the truth.
The subconscious mind does not know the difference between reality and imagination, so it easily accepts my suggestions as fact. The seeds of change (the suggestions) are immediately planted in the fertile soil of the subconscious. With proper cultivation and nourishment (it does take conscious effort to effectively retrain the brain), those seeds grow into new thoughts, and eventually new beliefs. The old behavior that resulted from the original limiting thought pattern becomes a thing of the past. Amazing!
"The secret of health for both mind and body is not to mourn for the past, nor to worry about the future, but to live the present moment wisely and earnestly." ~Buddha
I used hypnosis to improve my communication skills… This seemingly simple idea led me down a rabbit hole, which provided great insight into who I am and why I interact with others the way I do. The point: experiencing immediate results does not imply the work is done! Hypnotherapy is a process; don’t end the journey prematurely.
And by the way, this quote is essentially my take-away, regarding how to effectively communicate. The title of this blog is a direct suggestion I give myself. Feel free to add it to your affirmation arsenal.
