Spring is the time for renewal, growth and change. Days grow longer, more sun light is hitting the planet and buds and flowers are beginning to appear. It’s a time to check in with yourself to see if you are balanced and in harmony with your life. Spring is also the time to re-evaluate your goals. Have you brought anything into fruition from your goal setting? Maybe what you wanted a few months ago is no longer relevant or important to you.daffodils in vase

Go back to your list of goals you created a few months ago. What has manifested? Lots of my goals have already been brought into my life; the lease in my healing center was renewed with no rent change, I’ve been accepted to teach at the NGH Hypnosis Conference in August including a one day pre-convention class on marketing, our car was paid off several years sooner than we planned, I’ve been meeting new people – it’s awesome! How about you?

Look at your list and ask yourself if you still want/need everything you wrote down. Take those things off and create a new list in present time. Now continue with all the abundant living exercises I shared in the past posts. That’s right, you still need to continue working your mind and your energy! Think about a garden. Once the vegetables and flowers that were planted begin to grow, you still need to pull out the weeds and water the plants. It’s a continuous process. Or have you fallen into the trap of resting on your laurels and being lazy minded?

The first time my spiritual teacher told me I was lazy minded I was just about fit to be tied. How can that be? I work every day, I’m in class at night and weekends, I ride my bike everywhere because I don’t have a car and you’re telling me I’m lazy minded? He asked me how much time I spent practicing the spiritual/energy exercises I had learned. Was I watching my thoughts and catching negative thinking before it took hold? I had to admit I had not been doing any of that. Voila! he said, you’re being lazy minded. I was understanding the information from an intellectual conscious level but lacked the discipline to sit each day and apply what I had learned into my life. My excuse? I didn’t have time! Only when I sincerely put into practice what I had been taught did my life of abundance begin to manifest.

So now I ask you the same question: Are you resting on your laurels and being lazy minded? If things aren’t working for you, I encourage you to practice the exercises. Take a class in self-hypnosis. Check out my YouTube channel, Healed Heart Hypnosis, and listen to the free videos posted there. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLJSXoyQUJbsnKemLxZ-7Vg

What? You reached some goals? That’s great! But you still need to till the soil of your subconscious mind or you risk falling back to sleep to the old habits and patterns that weren’t working for you. In 1975 I was traveling around the country and met an elderly woman in Sedona, Arizona. She was in her 90’s but looked much younger. She practiced iridology and was a juicing fanatic. She told me of people who had been cured of cancer and were in remission by following a strict juice regime. She explained how some of them had the cancer return because they got tired of preparing juice every day, it was too much work. They reverted to their old habits once they were given the ‘All Is Clear’ signal. Wow!

So if you attract something into your life, keep doing what you were doing to get it! If you want to attract a new relationship and get one, keep clearing your space to maintain the health of that relationship. If you were mocking-up health or weight loss and reach that goal be careful of throwing away the healing by reverting back to the unhealthy habits that caused you to be overweight and unhealthy.

Hypnosis/self-hypnosis is a powerful modality to create change and completely end unwanted, unhealthy habits and patterns. It’s important to keep working and strengthening your mental muscles so that you can truly live and maintain the abundant lifestyle that is rightfully yours! You can do this! Have fun!

oilsLet me start by saying I am not a fanatic bible thumping oiler. I’m not writing this blog to push anything on anyone. I just want to share how I’m using essential oils in conjunction with my hypnosis practice, with lots of positive results.

My original intention for purchasing a diffuser and a bunch of oils was to make my house and office smell nice. The more I started to learn about the specific use each oil had and the more I researched about the healing properties the oils hold, the more excited I became. Now I use the oils every day, in both my home and healing center. The oils I purchase are from Young Living. After doing my own research on various companies I chose Young Living because the quality of their oils is superior than others I have purchased in the past. I found it interesting to learn that many essential oil companies either dilute the oils with other products or bottle the oils after the second or third distilling which renders the quality of the oils much weaker and not as effective. Take lavender for example. Pure 100% lavender is fabulous for treating burns and I always have a bottle in my kitchen. However, if you buy lavender that says it’s pure but has an additive in it, you could possibly make the burn worse. So my rule of thumb with anything I buy is ‘pay a bit more and get the best.’

I use essential oils in my hypnosis practice as another tool in the tool box. Before I see a client I’ll start diffusing an oil that will help alleviate the issue they are working on. I have a client who suffers from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. Before she comes in I make sure I have a combo of lemon and peppermint diffusing in the air. Both of these oils are great for lethargy and energy loss and helps boost mental clarity. Another client has so much on her agenda that she’s always feeling scattered and has a hard time winding down. I’ll have an essential oil blend called Gathering in the diffuser when she arrives. Gathering combines galbanum, frankincense and sandalwood oils. Together they help to collect emotional and spiritual energy, helping to enhance the state of wholeness and unity. Before we start the session I dab Stress Away on her wrists and temples to assist in the relaxation process. Then I proceed with the hypnosis, helping her go to the source of when these hectic patterns of behavior were first imprinted into her subconscious mind.

I love creating an environment and holding the space for healing and positive change to occur. When people see me for spiritual guidance and deeper emotional issues I’ll often include in the session a powerful healing technique called Christ Force Healing. This involves placing my hands on the soles of their feet to help channel this powerful Universal Energy through their body. I first anoint the bottoms of their feet with frankincense oil. This is an ancient oil that helps rid anxiety, sadness and despair and is useful for visualizing and improving one’s spiritual connection and centering. I received an email from one of my clients after she received this healing and she said, “Since that session with you, a whole layer of my depression has lifted, and I don’t believe it will return.” This was four months ago and I’m happy to say she continues to be well. Please note, that as a hypnotist and oil user, I don’t treat, diagnose or cure. I simply use the oils as an aide as I guide people into their subconscious mind for self-discovery and inner change. This is called Transformational Healing.

My desire is to help people release anything that blocks them from living a life of health, wealth and abundance. I will use whatever tools I have to assist them in that process.
If you are interested in learning more about the oils I use, I invite you to look at my web site, the link is below. I have several oils on the front page I recommend and you can see the full inventory via my page. And that’s about as pushy as I’ll get! If you have any questions please contact me!

Little house in the woods on New Year's night

You have the power and the ability to make this year your best one yet. That’s right, and wishing and hoping has nothing to do with it!

It’s not about New Years Resolutions. It’s not about creating goals. It’s not about what you wish and hope will happen. It’s about making a decision and keeping your mind focused on the positive once that decision has been made! What kind of decision you ask? How about deciding to stay more positive in the face of adversity? How about dedicating a few minutes every day for quiet, inner reflection? How about deciding to cancel out the negative chatter before you think those thoughts too long? How about finding five things each day that you’re thankful for? How about doing service work someplace once a month? Decide to do these steps and you will have created your best year yet. The rest of what you want to manifest will easily follow.

Are goals important? Yes! Why? Because you need to have a picture to focus on. Remember, the Universe is a bountiful, gracious, 360º Giver. But it needs a form in which to pour itself into. Imagine a pitcher full of clear refreshing water. You are very thirsty. Won’t that water taste great? The Universe wants to give you this water. But if you don’t have a glass, where will the water go? The same is true with goals. You need to have a clear picture with what you want. “I want to be happy” isn’t a clear picture, there’s no place to pour that water. “I will walk for twenty minutes every morning and I will be happy” is a picture.

The next step is to take some time, each day, to imagine yourself walking those twenty minutes every morning. Really get into it. Imagine you can smell the smells, feel the morning air, hear the sounds and FEEL the happiness! Then, let it go! You’ve just sent your order to the Universe. You’ve wrapped that order with images and feelings (positive emotions). Now the Universe has a form to pour its life-giving energy into. Take time each day to energize this goal, this mock-up, and sooner than you think you’ll find yourself walking for twenty minutes every morning without any effort at all.

How would this apply to a long-term goal? Let’s pretend you want to buy a new car. You don’t know how this will happen, you just know you want a new car. Start looking in magazines for the type of car you want. Cut out pictures and put them on a board that you can see every day. Visit some car dealerships and go on test drives. Get the feeling of this new car. Don’t worry about the when and how it will manifest.

Each day, spend time imagining you have that new car, just like your morning walk exercise. Imagine you’re driving it, feel the excitement, the happiness etc. Then….let it go! Once again, you’ve just sent a powerful picture to the Universe of what you want to bring into your life.

Law of Assumption: Here’s the missing ingredient to the Law of Attraction. Once you’ve taken the time to do the mental work of picturing and feeling what you want, get up and ACT as if you already have it! Pretend your present car is that brand new one. Pretend you have it parked in the driveway or on the street. Don’t allow the thoughts of doubt to creep in. (If you have not yet read and worked with my previous posts on how to let go of the old patterns, I encourage you to do so!) Keep your mind focused on the decision that you made. Then trust that the Universal Giver will honor those thoughts when the timing is best.

Testimony: This is how I got my new car. When I resigned from my church I had to return the company car. That summer I was driving my daughter around in her car because she had knee surgery and couldn’t drive. As I was driving her car I kept wondering what my new car would be. As I was driving her car I kept imagining it was my new car. I did this every time I was driving her car. Less than two months after returning to Berkeley my husband found a car he wanted me to look at: it was the exact car my daughter had; same brand, same make, same everything, just the color was different.

Testimony #2: My husband decided he wanted a new car. I told him to go for it, the Universe would provide. Once he decided to buy the car, I received many new clients and students – the same day he made the decision. See?

You can use this technique to manifest anything: A new place to live, a new office, a relationship, better health. Get a clear picture of what you want. Picture and feel what it’s like to have it, then live each day as if it’s already yours!

Is there work involved? Yes, but if you’ve been working with these posts you’ll discover it isn’t work at all. It’s an exciting journey as you discover your power and ability to create your future starting now!

Blessings to all and Happy New Year!

As we move into this Holiday Season, I invite you to take a moment and reflect on everything you are truly thankful for in life. Too often days are spent with unconscious complaining about the smallest things; no place to park, being stuck in traffic or waiting too long in the check-out line at the grocery store. But when you think about it, these are the complaints of a very prosperous nation. Are these really problems? I don’t believe so. Annoyances at most, but not real problems.

I was blessed to spend Thanksgiving day with a friend who hosted a dinner for a group of men recently paroled from prison. For several, this was their first ‘free’ Thanksgiving in more than 21 years. These individuals became certified alcohol drug counselors while incarcerated who are now counselors at a recovery treatment program in the Bay Area. As we went around the table saying what we were thankful for, I was humbled by their positive attitude and true gratitude for life. It confirmed for me, once more, that I really have no problems in my life. Challenges, yes. Annoyances, of course. But problems? Not at all! What about you?

When you give thanks for all the positive things in your life, you are energizing your life with positive energy. I remember saying this on a live, call-in radio show I used to host many years ago. A man called-in saying he liked what I said but he really had nothing positive to focus on. He lost his family in a divorce, he lost his job in the dot-com-bomb and was living in his car, homeless.

I simply pointed out the obvious things: He had ears with which to listen to the radio show, he had a mouth to speak his opinion, his body was healthy and he had a car to sleep in, not to mention whatever phone he was using to call the show. Start where you are, I told him and the ripples would begin to expand. He actually started to laugh. He had a change in perspective.

In order to live the abundant lifestyle it’s important to bless and accept exactly where you are in the moment, not where you want to be. Once you allow yourself to be happy where you’re at, you’ll recognize you don’t have to stay there and changes will begin to take place.

Each day, give thanks for a minimum of five things in your life. I’d prefer you count off ten or twenty things each day, but we’ll start with small steps. Do this daily and your energy will increase, you’ll start thinking happier thoughts and you’ll start feeling better. Remember, where you put your attention, energy follows. Put your attention on the good and more good will be added to you.

Now here’s a tease for my next post as we move into the exercises for manifesting your goals and dreams: Take time each day to give thanks for the things you want that haven’t manifested in your life yet. Give thanks as if you already have them!

Till next time, peace and blessings to all who wander by to read this post!

Who-am-I-Why-am-I-here-Real-Self-Elizabeth-Clare-ProphetThe picture I chose for this post is one I used to have hanging on my wall in the late 1970’s when I was learning how to take my first baby steps on my spiritual journey. I’m not a follower or student of the Summit Lighthouse, I’ve just always loved this image as it truly depicts the message I’m inspired to share today.

I’ve been a student, practitioner and teacher of the spiritual, metaphysical mind sciences since 1978. I was raised in a Catholic family in a small New England town so my roots are deeply and faithfully Christian based. When I began to study and be exposed to more esoteric teachings I had a difficult time fully grasping the concept that there is no separation in Divine Mind. What did this mean and how did it affect my ability to create and manifest the life I wanted?

Most people, when they think of God, get an image of a Deity or old man sitting off on a cloud someplace passing judgement down upon the people. I know I did. So when I was told God was having a great time being me, I just didn’t get it. It was many years before I began to truly awaken to my Divine Self. (Hey, this is a planet for slow learners, right?)

When I say ‘God’ I’m referring to a Consciousness. A Supreme Consciousness. A Consciousness we all have the ability to tap into and bring into our physical body. This is the consciousness, the awareness that knows nothing about lack, limitation, can’t, impossible and notions of that nature. This consciousness simply gives us what we ask for, every day. Remember, your word has power. Everything you say is a prayer for or against yourself. I’ve written about this before. Keep talking about negative things happening to you and you will attract more negative situations into your life. Why? Because the Ears of the Universe are always listening, they just don’t have the ability to sort out good, bad, right or wrong. They hear what you say and think, over and over with your emotional power and send you those experiences. Be careful what you ask for because you just might get it!

My passion, when helping people awaken to their higher self, is to show how spirituality is practicality. Being spiritual doesn’t mean you’re floating in the clouds every day completely out of touch with reality. It is awakening to who you are as spirit, connected with the Supreme Consciousness, Supreme Being, Father of Lights, Christos . . . whatever word or title works best for you. And for any feminists reading this, Father, in my world, is not a stereotype icon putting women in the subservient role. I’ve always liked the explanation my teacher gave to me:

Father is Fat/Her. The pregnant One, filled and ready to give birth to our ideas and creations. Father also means the Feeder of our awareness. “Give us this day, our daily bread” equates to “feed us each day with Your energy and awareness”. Being spiritual is using the gifts and talents you were born with in such a way that you are able to prosper and live the abundant life.

When we have our attention focused within to this presence of consciousness, we have taken the steps to lift our awareness up out of our limited personality to be more in alignment with Divine Source. The more we practice being present with this Higher Consciousness, the more we are able to realize our dreams and goals truly can be made manifest in our lives. Let’s hear a big Woo Hoo!

The easiest way to access this spiritual consciousness is with hypnosis. Why? Because hypnosis helps you bypass the critical factor of your conscious mind and brings you into the arena of your subconscious. The critical mind wants to debate, argue, look for proof, doubt and come up with all the reasons why you can’t be One with Divine Source. The critical conscious mind is a body level of awareness and very limited.

The subconscious mind is the storehouse of memory of all your life experiences, connected to the Akashic Records, your Book of Life. The subconscious mind knows no difference between reality and fantasy so accepts ideas and acts upon them as the truth. With the conscious mind moved aside in hypnosis, the subconscious will readily accept the truth when hearing “Hello, you are spirit. Your body is the house you live in right now.” The subconscious is limitless. It is also the gateway to your higher or super consciousness.

Study the picture I posted. The physical you is on the bottom. Your subconscious is the middle image, your Higher Self. The top image represents the presence of I Am. When we are in alignment with our personal Holy Trinity is when we can fully understand and recognize that there is no separation in Divine Mind. With our awareness focused on this vibration is when we can manifest in the positive.

As a spiritual hypnotist, I introduce my clients to their personal Holy Trinity as this: The conscious mind represents our male energy. Our subconscious mind represents our female energy. Our conscious mind  implants an idea into the subconscious and it manifests into something. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit is the Communion of our Higher Self, bringing ideas down into our body to be manifested as our new goals. It’s very empowering to awaken to this concept. And when practiced daily, a new level of peace and inner security can be yours because you’ll have the understanding and the experience combined together.

This is why I now know God is having a great time being me! What about you?

We’ve just entered the autumn season. Autumn is the time for harvest and is also a time of completion.  The seeds that were planted in the spring have grown into the fruit bearing plants and are now reaching their peak of bounty.

This is the time of year when we can witness the fruits of our own mock-ups for 2014. What seed ideas did you plant for your life goals and dreams? Have you manifested what you desired? Did the same old weeds keep popping up as different situations and challenges attempting to block your goals from taking form?

Are you happy with your creations? If not, why not?

Most of the issues people have in their lives; the beliefs in struggle, lack, limitation and the non-ability to live a happy, healthy and abundant lifestyle, stem from the root cause of not knowing who they truly are as spirit. We get hypnotized into believing we are the body/personality and have fallen to sleep to our true spiritual identity.

You have a body – but you are not that body. You have thoughts – but you are not those thoughts. You have emotions – but you are not those emotions. You are spirit. Your body is your house. The quality of life you choose to live is based on the thoughts you continuously think. Your emotions are the language your body uses to let you, spirit, know what’s going on in your environment.

Autumn is the perfect time of year to awaken from spiritual slumber and regain your personal divinity as a spirit in a body. This is the perspective that will help you manifest your hearts desires! However – there’s some house cleaning that needs to be done first!

Exercise #1 – The Purge List

Get a pad of paper or a notebook.gi-list

Dedicate some quiet time each day for personal reflection.

What are the hurts and resentments you’re still carrying with you? You know them. Is there a family member or friend who mistreated you? Does that same emotion fire up when you think about this? Write it down!

Write down all the pet peeves, complaints, anger and resentments. Be honest with yourself. Nobody else will be reading this list. This is your time to get absolutely real with yourself. As you’re writing everything down ask yourself if you’re finally ready to let it all go?

These past time situations are acting as blocks preventing you from bringing new positive things into your life. And they HAVE become your pet peeves! You feed them, you nurture them, you carry them with you everywhere you go, including into your mock-up space, which is why you keep attracting the same problems and situations over and over and over again.

I encourage you to spend time each day doing this exercise. When you’re done each day, take a moment to write down the things you’re thankful for in your life right now. We always want to end on a positive note!

Do this for seven days. Next week I will post a video of a powerful exercise that will guide you into hypnosis for the final purge before we move to our next exercise! Have fun with this! I can honestly say my life keeps getting better and I continue to prosper on all levels as I work these techniques!

Love and blessings to all who wander by to read this post!

Green JuiceI’m on the sixth day of a twelve day detox program. This particular cleanse is rather gentle and I’m really enjoying the process. I’m using an herbal/tincture program, drinking lots of fresh juice and eating mostly raw veggies if I get hungry. I usually do some type of internal cleanse with each season. I’m not a perfectionist. I don’t label myself a vegetarian, vegan or anything at all. I simply believe in moderation and choosing the healthy foods that are good for my body. I cleanse when I feel lethargic or heavy from over-indulging, when I desire to end an old habit that no longer serves a positive purpose in my life and when I’m getting ready to take a new step in my personal growth and want a kick-start to get me going. But a physical detox is not what this blog entry is about, however, it is the doorway into the mental detox that I believe is most important.

You’ve heard the saying, ‘you are what you eat’. I believe even more the truth, ‘you are what you think’. Every thought you think creates a physiological response in your body. Until we learn to retrain our brain to consciously think in the positive, we tend to think negative thoughts more readily. This means we get used to feeling negative feelings and just assume it’s the normal way to feel. I work with clients on a daily basis helping them to stop the negative thought process. They are usually quite surprised to become aware of the unconscious negativity flowing through their brain. They are even more surprised when they start to feel better, physically, once the negative mode as stopped.

I’m not a doctor or a nutritionist. As a hypnotist I don’t treat, diagnose or cure. But, as someone who has been practicing, using and teaching the metaphysical/mind sciences for more than thirty years, I DO know how thoughts create things. I DO know how a long-time pattern of running vibrations of anger, hatred, resentment or fear can create a physical ailment in the body. These vibrations create a state of dis-ease in your body, mind and soul. In time, the negative vibrations can nest and manifest as some type of illness. I know from personal experience.

Approximately ten years ago I had shingles. For almost a year. I could barely walk and spent most of my free time on the floor with my feet up on a chair. I never got the rash which is why the shingles went misdiagnosed for so long. I won’t go into the pain I experienced, if you’ve ever had them you already know. When the third neurologist I saw made a guess and said ‘internal shingles on your spinal cord’ (or something like that), gave me medication that cleared all symptoms super fast – I went searching for the mental cause that helped me create and manifest this dis-ease in the first place.

In the book “Heal Your Body” by Louise L. Hay, the mental cause for shingles is: Waiting for the other shoe to drop. Fear and tension. Too sensitive. Wow! Did this make sense to me. For three years prior to this I had been dealing with an extremely stressful personal situation that also involved the welfare of my children. I even remembered thinking and saying to people “I’m just waiting for the other shoe to drop”. I was constantly looking over my shoulder, fearful and stressed about what might be happening next. This internal dialogue, mixed with the physical attributes helped to manifest in my body as shingles. Once I knew the mental cause I could work on the energy and cleanse my subconscious mind of those unconscious thought patterns. By the way, the opposite positive affirmation to shingles is: I am relaxed and peaceful because I trust the process of life. All is well in my world.

The Bible says, “Not that which goeth into the mouth defileth a man, but that which cometh out of the mouth, this defileth a man.” Matthew 15:11. My understanding of this verse means to watch what we think with our mind and say with our mouth. My teacher used to say the tongue was the most unruly member of the body. Harness our thoughts, watch the words we speak and notice the positive changes that will take place in the body. This is the reason I do my best not to get caught up in too many perfect pictures with what I eat. It’s also the very reason I do my best to watch the thoughts moving through me!

What about you? It’s Spring! Time for rebirth and renewal. Why not do a mental diet to cleanse out the old negative patterns in thinking? By releasing the old vibrations you are opening yourself to receive more positive things from this beautiful, abundant Universe. Here’s a simple exercise to get you started: Wear an elastic band around your wrist. Every time you catch yourself thinking a negative thought or saying something in the negative, give that elastic band a good pull and let it SNAP you! This will help remind you of the decision you’ve made to retrain your brain to release negativity and only think those positive thoughts!  I know you can do this!

If you’d like help with this process I invite you to check out my Spring Session Special:

Happy Spring. Enjoy your growth and unfoldment!

ImageIf all your unspoken thoughts had been written down this year, what do you think the main theme or quality of these thoughts would be? Were most of your days in 2013 spent rejoicing and giving thanks for everything in your life? Did you start and end each day with a prayer of gratitude? Did you take the time to find at least one positive event in each of the 365 days? If not, why not?

The thoughts we think, backed by the emotional intensities of those thoughts are what propels us into the future. The truth is, we are creating our future in every moment based on the thoughts we are thinking. Yikes!

If you yearn to create positive change for 2014 I encourage you to learn how to re-frame your mind. There’s many simple, effective exercises you can do that will help you catch those negative thoughts before they take control.

1. Keep a complaint journal. Every time, and I do mean every time, you find yourself complaining, write it down! Write down the complaint, the time of day, where you are and who you are with at that moment. Then, write down something positive about that same situation. You’ll be surprised how many entries you have after one week. I did this many years ago and was shocked to see how much I complained without realizing it! I was more surprised a month or so later when I recognized I had stopped complaining! I felt better. I was happier. I smiled more. And all I did was adjust my attitude!

What’s the significance of writing down the people you’re with when logging the complaints? This is an interesting part of the exercise to learn how other people may effect your mood and thoughts. It’s called ‘matching energy’. When you’re with people who complain or have a negative attitude you may find yourself acting the same way. And do you think these people want you to start being more positive? Heck no! You’ll ruin their joy! Some people actually enjoy being negative. And some people may not want you to be happy. I know a person who is enjoying a new romantic relationship after being single for many years. I watched her slowly make separations from the negative people in her life. She focused on herself. She set personal goals and met them; she lost weight, she started working out with a personal trainer, she got her finances grounded. She spent time with people who supported her in a positive way. She used hypnosis and meditation tools to work on her inner self. She’s happy. And – she stopped complaining!

2. Are you still looking in the past and playing the victim game? If yes then stop! Stop doing that right now! All you’re doing is making excuses for why you can’t be successful today. I recently heard of someone in their thirties complaining that she’s not a professional right now because of a living/work situation she was in during her teen-age years. This is called being stuck on a picture. Please don’t misunderstand me. I know many people have experienced horrible things and I’m not speaking lightly of past-time pain. But you have a choice. You can learn tools to help set you free from the victim role. You can re-frame your mind and practice positive thinking. You can let go of the painful past by admitting the hurt and resentment, then practice letting it go. You deserve so much more!

3. Write your own prescription for happiness. This may sound trite, but it’s surprisingly effective. Dedicate some quiet time for yourself. When you feel ready, create a list of things you’d really love to do. This isn’t a bucket list. These are things you’ve been thinking about for a long time that you believe can never happen or wonder how will it all work out? Don’t worry about the steps it’ll take to get there, start by writing them down! I worked with a client last year who had been unhappy for quite some time. He felt like he was stuck in a rut. He had a job but he realized it was just to pay his bills, he wasn’t happy going to work each day. Our first task was focused on re-framing his mind with work. He was able to find gratitude that he had a job and didn’t have to worry about finances. When I asked him what he’d love to do if there was nothing blocking him he started to smile. Then he started to talk. And talk. And talk. He wanted to be a spiritual teacher. During hypnosis I guided his subconscious to show him ways he could turn his passion into reality. Several months later he was offering free lectures. The free lectures blossomed into paid classes. He’s still working at his other job, but he’s found joy and passion by activating his personal prescription for happiness.

2014 is almost here. You have 365 clean sheets of paper waiting for you to express your thoughts, your intentions and goals. You can create whatever you choose, it’s only a thought away!

“Once someone asked me if I knew where God was. Yes, I replied, He’s in your ATTITUDE and when you ask Him, He will heal it!” – Rev. Wm. H. Duby

The Beauty of Letting Go

Tree on GreenFor the first time in many, many years I’ve been able to enjoy a New England Autumn. I love the beauty of the maple trees as their leaves change color and the special smell that’s in the chilly air. The sound of dried leaves rustling and crunching beneath my feet while walking through the woods is soothing and of course – there’s Apple Cider!

It’s hard to adequately describe the majestic beauty in this soul-quenching season of death. Yes, this is the death cycle on this part of the planet right now and yet, for me, it’s the most gorgeous time of year. Nature is reflecting to us the graceful art of letting go. She does this every year. And so I invite you to join along and discover the beauty of releasing, letting go and moving forward.

What have been your challenges and obstacles you faced this year? Write them down!

What are the uncomfortable feelings you’re carrying from past time experiences? Write them all down! Most often we move into each new year lugging the old garbage from the years before. Then we wonder why we keep experiencing the same old stuff! Do the trees try to hold on to all the leaves as they change color and drop to the ground? Of course not! The leaves drop away to make room for the new buds each Spring.

When you admit you have negative, uncomfortable feelings about different situations in your life, you have just allowed light to enter into the darkness. Where there is light there is permission for change.

Change can be scarey, especially when we don’t know where these transitions will take us. I’m working with a woman who is recently divorced after forty-plus years of marriage. She’s forced to sell her house and she has no idea where she will be living next. At 65 this is a real uncomfortable situation. Or is it?

She’s started facing the pain she’s been carrying. Instead of putting a smile on her face and telling people she’s just fine, she’s learning to admit she feels like crap, is hurt, angry and scared – yet chooses to smile in spite of her situation. See the difference?

After a few days of writing down all the painful emotions from different areas of her life she’s started to sleep better. She told me she doesn’t wake-up in the morning with a heavy feeling of dread in the pit of her stomach. She’s beginning to look at her situation as a new path in her life-journey. The other day she emailed me to say she’s started looking at potential places to live and is excited because she realizes she now has the freedom to re-create herself and her life. Where once she was stuck in death and apathy, she is now letting go and enjoying the beauty of this part of her life. She is empowered.

I encourage you to take time each day during this season of letting go to write down those feelings and situations you no longer want to experience. This is a purging exercise. Do this, and you are creating space within your subconscious mind to bring in the new experiences you want to attract into your life.

Ready – set – start now! You have until the Winter Solstice to clean out the painful past. Then we’ll start our Season of Mock-Ups!

Love, Light and Blessings to all!

I work with many people using manifestation principles such as the Law of Attraction. Through the years I’ve noticed that most everyone begins their journey of creating change by wanting to be ‘someplace else.’ “When I lose 25 pounds I’ll be happy. When I get more money I’ll finally feel secure. If I only had a relationship I would be able to like myself.”

This may sound good in theory, but the results that keep re-appearing in their lives is exactly what they don’t want to keep experiencing. They never lose the weight, get more money or have a lasting relationship. Why? Because they keep focusing on what they don’t want to happen! Remember, the Law of Attraction is always at play. We keep attracting into our consciousness and into our lives everything we’ve been thinking about. When I get more money equates to I have no money. If I had a relationship keeps the thoughts directed on I have no relationship and therefore don’t love or approve of myself. The key is to learn how to switch the thought tracks of our thinking AND to accept and be at peace with where we are in each moment. That’s the key!

If you want to lose weight, begin to accept the number on the scale today. Yes, change your eating habits and move your body more, but you still must accept where you are in this moment. If you want more money in your life and, let’s be honest, who doesn’t, accept the number you see in your bank account right now. You want a loving relationship? Accept being by yourself right now and start treating yourself better. Why? Because once you accept where you are – you can then create change. You realize you no longer have to stay stuck at that vibration.

Okay, so let’s say you’ve done all that, now what? You begin manifesting what you want in your life at the level you believe you can accept. It sounds great to say “I want a million dollars”, but maybe your subconscious mind can only accept one thousand dollars. It will immediately reject the idea of one million. Or twenty-five pounds sounds impossible at the subconscious level, but five pounds is completely plausible. Your subconscious mind may only be as large as a thimble and you want to pour a gallon of new awareness into it. It won’t work. You need to start where you are, right now.

Oh crud, Debi. Does that mean I’ll never be able to manifest anything larger than a thimble? Not at all. Once you begin taking your steps towards greater abundance by allowing yourself to be okay in the now, your subconscious mind will begin to expand to allow more awareness to flow in. It’s actually a fun process and very empowering! And of course, if you choose to use hypnosis to go into your subconscious mind and release the old thoughts and beliefs of lack and limitation your journey of creating positive change and living a healthy, abundant lifestyle will be even quicker!

Have fun!
