allergy trifectaI love Spring! Flowers are blooming, grass turns green and pollen is in the air! And right now the Bay Area, where I live, is thriving in pollen from all the much-needed rain we’ve received.

In the past this was my worse time of year because I suffered with allergies. I grew-up on a farm in Connecticut and was allergic to just about everything; hay, rag weed, house dust, flowers and cats. I can remember sneezing consecutively until I was weak. It was terrible. I had to get an allergy shot once a week and took pills that made me sleepy.

After high school I moved to the desert in Arizona and the allergies seemed to disappear. I assumed I had outgrown them. Fast forward twenty years later and I’m living in the Bay Area and guess what? The allergies returned. I was hosting a live call-in radio show at the time and people were actually calling in, not to ask a question, but to give me suggestions on how to alleviate the allergies. Nothing worked. And I did not want to take medication again!

It was around this time that I was studying to become a hypnotist. My instructor was working with me one day and right before the session ended, gave me a simple suggestion: “You have no more allergies, you are completely allergy free.” I had actually forgotten he said this until a few days later, while hosting the radio show, my nose was clear and my eyes weren’t tearing. Wow! I was amazed!

I started testing myself to see if this was truly happening. I went for a walk in the Rose Garden which was in full bloom. I let my friends cat sit in my lap while we watched a movie. I was fine! No allergy symptoms at all. This was one of the first big ‘convincers’ for me that hypnosis really does help alleviate physical symptoms. On another day during my hypnosis training I regressed to several childhood emotional issues that acted as the starting point with the allergies. That was in 1993. Today I remain allergy free!

Another great allergy blaster is what I call the trifecta of allergy relief. This is a combination of three essential oils; lavender, peppermint and lemon. This combination works wonders to cleanse the air of pollen or dust spores that are floating around causing havoc. Lavender aids in relaxation which helps to open tight airways. Lemon is an astringent that also boosts energy levels. Peppermint helps to clear the sinus passages and relieve headaches that often accompany allergy symptoms.

Several drops of each can be added to a diffuser which is the best way to cleanse the environment. You can also add some drops to a cup of water and breathe in deeply – just be cautious not to put your nose too close to the cup as the peppermint can be strong!

If you suffer from allergies I encourage you to give both hypnosis and essential oils a go. Both are safe modalities to help alleviate the discomforts caused by allergies. Try them, and you can love Spring again too!

cracked eggBoth actually. When people call me asking if hypnosis will help their issue, they are usually thinking in terms of getting fixed quick; they want the presenting problem to go away as fast as it can. Initially, they may not be interested in investing lots of time or money into getting help because they’ve already been down that road with other therapies.

What I explain to people is this: Hypnosis is a great modality to end unhealthy, unwanted habits and a wonderful tool for behavior modification. A client walks in as a smoker and leaves a non-smoker. The client with fears or phobias ends the session able to get on the plane, drive over a bridge or hike in the woods where there might be a snake or spider. In this aspect, hypnosis is a quick fix and for many, the only fix they will need.

However, one of the questions I ask my potential new client is how long they have been indulging in the habit they no longer want, or living with the fear that has kept them locked down? If we looked at the presenting problem as an egg, this would be the outer shell. Inside that shell is the source of life to their problems: Low self-esteem, lack of confidence, being an  abuse or rape victim, fear, or guilt. The habit is how they have been coping with the real issue. The habit has been the band-aide to get them through the day. This is when hypnosis should be used as a longer process.

Your subconscious mind is the storehouse of memory for all your life experiences, both good and bad. At some point in time, usually when you were young, something happened to you that went into your subconscious mind and became the initial imprint for the problem you are dealing with today. Why are you self-conscious? What is the cause for such low self-esteem? What was the start of the anger issues? Only by going into your subconscious mind, via hypnosis, can the initial imprint be targeted and released.

So I tell the new client, hypnosis is a process. You can leave my office after one visit feeling great and ready to tackle the immediate challenge at hand, but realize you didn’t just wake-up one day with low self-esteem, anger issues or poverty consciousness. This way of thinking, feeling and behaving took time to become the foundation for who you believe yourself to be. And if you really want to create positive, permanent change in your life, I suggest you commit to a hypnosis program. And although a program will involve four or more sessions, it won’t be a ‘this-will-never-end-cycle’ of constantly going over the same situations in your mind again and again, as in classical talk therapy.

You’ll be able to release the source of the problems and all other contributing factors and then replenish your subconscious mind with the new thoughts, feelings and actions of how you want to be living your life. You’ll learn how to retrain your brain and change your perspective on how you choose to respond to the world around you.

Potential new clients get pretty excited when they learn they can take back control over their life and become the person they’ve always yearned to be in just a few months and not years invested in therapy. And of course, they always have a choice. That’s what freedom is all about.

So which is it for you, a quick fix or longer process? Find a hypnotist in your area. Check out my hypnosis programs on this blog site. Create the life you want!

Blessings to all who wander by to read this post. Thank you for sharing this with your friends!

GoalsThe exercise I’m sharing today is one I’ve posted before and it is an important step in the process of manifesting health, wealth and abundant living. I encourage you to give your ‘mock-up’ space the respect it deserves and you will reap the benefits of taking this extra time of preparation. And this is the perfect time of year to be doing so!

I am constantly amazed at how the quality of my life keeps getting better and better in all areas of living and I know it’s because I faithfully work these exercises every year! In this past year of 2015 I have tripled my income as a hypnotist by attracting more clients and students. I have manifested a beautiful two-story loft for my hypnosis practice in Berkeley, California and I bought a new car. My health is fantastic and my marriage grounded and sound.

I’m not bragging. I’ve been on the other side of this picture. While raising my children as a single parent I was on welfare. I cleaned houses as I transitioned off state aide before taking the leap in faith by becoming a certified hypnotist. BUT, I was continually working on my inner self, cleansing my subconscious mind and working on my levels of havingness.

Tilling the soil of your subconscious mind can be compared to preparing the soil of a garden before planting new seeds; you want to uproot and cast aside the old, frozen stuck ways of thinking and feeling. These are the blocks, or, rocks, imbedded in your subconscious mind that creates the belief in thinking of lack and limitation. If you plant a new seed idea without clearing the soil, it most likely won’t sprout into what you desire. You need to clean out or destroy the old before bringing in, or creating, the new. This is the concept of creating and destroying.

Imagine you were given a bunch of money to buy a complete new wardrobe. When you get home from your shopping spree what must you do before putting away your new attire? You need to throw away the old worn clothing from the closet to make room for the new! The same is true for your subconscious mind; you need to clear out the closet of old thoughts of lack, limitation, poor health etc. before putting in the new thoughts of health, wealth and abundant living.

For this exercise, I suggest you get a small notebook, as you’ll be working with this for at least a week. You’re going to take a walk through your life as it is, right now. I want you to write down all the uncomfortable thoughts, disappointments and feelings around every aspect of your life. This isn’t meant to be a bummer session! It’s important to acknowledge where you are in any given moment of time. In scripture it says, “For nothing is secret that shall not be made manifest; neither anything hidden, that shall not be known and come to light.” Luke 8:17

Once you admit, which is to confess, how you feel about certain aspects of yourself and your life you allow yourself to realize you don’t need to stay in that state of mind any longer! It’s when we deny or pretend that the complaints, worries, disappointments are NOT there is when we block ourselves from moving forward with positive change.

Exercise:

In the notebook, create categories to help keep your thoughts organized. For example:

Physical: Start with your body. How do you really feel about it? Unhappy with the tummy? Wish the face didn’t sag at the jaw line? Write down all the feelings and thoughts about your body. You can even begin with “I admit I have these thoughts and feelings….” because now you’ve brought it out into the light!

Move out to the place where you live; your house or apartment. The neighborhood. Some things you have no control over and this isn’t about running away from situations. Again, it’s about acknowledging your thoughts and feelings.

What about your car or mode of transportation – write it all down!

Financial: What are your thoughts/feelings about your back account? Any debt, your job or lack of employment? Get the idea?

Mental: What are your thoughts about yourself or the world around you? I admit I complain about this or that. I admit I don’t think very highly of myself. I feel inadequate when….

Spiritual: What are your beliefs about God? Do you have any? Do you believe you’re being punished? Not perfect enough? Are you angry at a particular church or priest or minister? Do you remember who you are as spirit? Write it down!

Again, the idea is to till the soil of your subconscious mind to bring up all the old stuck ways of thinking and feeling. After you’ve taken the time each day doing this, go back and write down the positive things in each category. This will help neutralize any discomfort during this important process. I like to end each session by blessing everything I have no matter how I feel about it at the time. And remember, once you truly accept where you are the good news is – you don’t have to stay there!

Have fun!

I meditate just about every day. I have been since 1978. I also teach others how to quiet their mind and sit still. Science is finding proof and validating the benefits of meditation: it relieves stress, lowers blood pressure, promotes better sleep, encourages a sense of overall well-being, to name a few. But there comes a time when we still need to get up out of the chair or off the floor and deal with life. This is when the benefits of meditation are put into practical, daily use. The key is to bring the calmness of mind and emotions with you, wherever you go.Meditation-leaf

But what happens if we get too comfortable in our stillness? Can stillness actually turn into stagnation? I believe it can. Let me explain myself.

I am a small business owner. My business is called Healed Heart Hypnosis. Using hypnosis and other metaphysical, mind-science techniques I help people end unwanted habits and patterns of behavior, release past time emotional trauma and create an action plan to achieve their goals and dreams. As a small business owner it’s up to me to find the clients who need my help. I use the same manifestation techniques to help energize my practice that I teach my students and clients. I believe in the concept; where you put your attention, energy follows.

This means, through-out the day I am always thinking about my hypnosis practice. I am visualizing working with clients and having students in my classes. I am picturing and feeling my phone ringing or receiving emails or PayPal notices that my recordings have been purchased. I’m visualizing all this from a mind-set of gratitude as if everything has already happened, not with an attitude of ‘oh please let this work.’ See the difference? I practice these exercises while washing the dishes, cleaning the house, even when riding on the back of my husbands motorcycle. And I usually will always be contacted within the day by a potential new client or student.

With that said, I STILL need to implement physical activity. I work on my web site, send out mailers, write a blog, add content to my Google+ pages and other social network avenues – all the while, visualizing people contacting me. I know how easy it is to fall into the comfort zone of being self-employed, I see it all the time. And this is where I see stillness turning into stagnation. Lots of people get stuck in the meditating, metaphysical mind-set that the Universe will provide if ‘I just stay quiet and visualize all day.’. Yes, the Universe will provide, but there’s another saying; God helps those who help themselves.

You’ve got to be enthused to energize your business daily. Do something to keep the energy of your business in present time.

When was the last time you made a change on your web pages? When people go to your site and see the same thing over and over, or the date hasn’t been updated in six months to a year, they’re going to think you’re not in business anymore. Do something!

When was the last time you created a ‘Monthly Special’ or ‘Call to Action’? Do something!

This can also be applied to your business called LIFE! Are you stuck in a rut? Have you carved a groove into the zone of comfort and can’t seem to find a way out? Here’s a quick little exercise you can do.

Create three main goals for yourself. This can be three main goals for your business. Three main goals for finances. Three main goals for your lifestyle. Three main goals for your relationship space. You get the idea.

Ask yourself, how will my life be different once I achieve these goals? What will I be doing?

Now, what are the blocks you find yourself thinking about? I need an action plan. I don’t know where to find clients. I have to lose weight. I don’t have the money to do what I want to attract money. (That’s always a fun twist!)

These issues, blocks, beliefs are keeping you in that comfort zone of stagnation! It’s easier to stay where you are and dream than to get up and do something about it. I know, I’ve been there! So my challenge to you, is to – do something! Every day, do something to bring your business, your practice, your life onto a new level of existence. Don’t worry about the steps it will take to get there, just start.

If you are stuck and need guidance, I am happy to help you! If you’re not in the Bay Area I offer sessions via Skype, Facetime and phone. Hypnosis is the easiest way to access your subconscious mind to release those old patterns and habits so you can create new, healthy changes! Release the fear! Release the stagnation! When you do, your times of stillness will be that much more meaningful.

And no worries if you don’t want to work with me, I encourage you to seek out a hypnotist in your area. I believe the Universe brings everyone together who are meant to work with each other!

Blessings to all who wander by to read this. I’ll return to my stillness now!

Me on rock

New Hampshire

It’s hard to believe four years have passed since the Universe offered me such a great opportunity for growth and change. And I’m not so sure the word ‘offer’ is quite accurate because at the time it felt like I had been punched in the stomach. I’ve never really spoken about what happened but so many people have asked me about this, I decided to share my story. Don’t worry, I’ll do my best to keep this short. Ish.

Since 1982 I had been involved with a non-profit organization whose original mission was to help individuals get in touch with the God of their Heart and establish a personal relationship with Divine Source. I was ordained as a minister in 1983, was appointed Assistant Pastor of the church in 1984 and held the office of Bishop from 1994 until my departure in 2011. Within the organization was a school for metaphysical studies and also a school for hypnosis training and certification, both of which I was a director and principle instructor.

Many internal changes took place through the years and eventually it became a sick and toxic place – only I didn’t quite see it at the time. Yes, I saw things shifting and moving away from the original intention of the organization but I also continued to believe, very deeply, in the original picture and mission of the church. So I kept smiling and doing my best to keep things flowing by being a good steward and shepherd of the flock. Then in June 2011 I was called to an impromptu Board meeting. There were three board members at the time, myself and two other women. The other two had decided (without a vote I might add) that they thought it would be best for the organization if I no longer received a monthly stipend for my services; that because there had been a decline in students it would financially help the organization if I worked for free. But, I could keep 20% of all the hypnosis work I did.

I think this is when I had my first real out of body experience. I could see them talking and smiling but I was floating far above them, as if in a tunnel. Their voices were muddled. I wasn’t comprehending the logic of what I had heard. No stipend. No income. How was I going to pay my rent? How were my husband and I going to make ends meet on one income? I came back into my body hearing these words, ‘Debi, we can’t lower our stipends because we have bills to pay, you understand!’ Oh yes, I did understand. I understood how, even though these two women did not pay rent or utilities or gas for their free cars, that they were both stuck in survival, lack and limitation. I understood that even though they taught the techniques and concepts and stood behind the pulpit in service they did not, in that moment, have the faith they professed to maintain. I also understood I was leaving.

I took a week to meditate on my next step to make sure I wasn’t having a knee jerk reaction before sending in my letter of resignation. I was devastated. I was hurt. I was really pissed off. And I was so scared. I always thought I’d be at that place for the rest of my life, helping people, teaching and healing. All my sense of personal value was stripped. I felt like I had nothing to offer. If the people I had known, worked with and loved for twenty-nine years didn’t see me as anyone with value or purpose how could I help anyone else? One thing became very clear to me. All my years in training of applying the techniques and concepts had brought me to this point in time. The teaching was about to begin.

Hypnosis: Every day I went into hypnosis to release the emotional pain I was experiencing. Situations from my childhood were also bubbling to the surface because the emotions were similar. It was amazing to see how much crap I was still holding on to from years before. After the intensity began to subside I used hypnosis to create my new image of who I wanted to become.

Prayer: I prayed. Constantly. Sometimes my prayers were more of a plea, often I found myself begging for some divine intervention of understanding. But mainly I prayed to have the anger removed from my space and to allow forgiveness to flow for the situation and everyone involved. This didn’t happen overnight, but the bubble finally popped and I was set free.

Hiking: My husband and I started walking and hiking. Every day. Nature became our sanctuary. It’s difficult to hold on to hurt feelings under a canopy of redwood trees. And breathing in fresh ocean air can cleanse your mind and rejuvenate your soul faster than any written script or sermon. So the outdoors became our pulpit for the new beginnings in which we had embarked upon. And we continue to walk or hike every day!

Within one month of resigning I started a new business and created a new web site. Today I am humbled by our ever abundant, gracious Father and Universe for sending people to me for whom I can offer help and solace. I’ve worked with more people these last four years on my own than I ever was able to attract at the other organization. The Lord does work in mysterious way. I regret nothing from the past and am so grateful for this journey and look forward to all the adventures yet to come. And that’s my story. Or at least a good chunk of it.

If you are going through trials and tribulations, hang in there! There’s a greater reason and purpose that may not be revealed yet, but in time will be made known. If you need guidance with life transitions I can help.

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!

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!

Newton’s Law of Inertia states: “An object at rest tends to stay at rest  until an outside force acts upon it. And an object in motions tends to stay in motion until an outside force acts upon it.” At least that’s how I remember the Law from 8th grade science!

So how does this relate to the use of our minds? And, by the way, I wish I could say I came up with the statement ‘Overcoming the inertia of your mind….’ but I didn’t. Credit goes to my husband, I just decided to use it officially! But getting back to the topic….

When I first started on my spiritual path my teacher told me I was lazy-minded. What? That can’t be! Look how busy I am every day! I go to work, I ride my bike, I come to class each night…. I am NOT lazy. Defensive, maybe. But certainly not lazy. He just laughed. Then he explained being busy isn’t the same thing as correctly using my mind. And when I reflected on this, I had to admit he was right. It took me several months when I was a new student before I had created a dedicated space to meditate each day. It took me even longer before I sincerely started practicing all the hypnosis/mind science techniques I was learning in the annual Prosperity Workshops he taught each December. Why? Because it was easier NOT to sit down and actually work the information.

I had to create a whole new mind-set and habit patterns. At first, when it was time to sit and practice what I was learning, everything else called to me; clean the house, write a letter, wash my clothes….busy, busy, busy! My mind was stuck in a comfort groove of keeping me locked in a non-movement state of lack and limitation. I was so used to being in that state of mind that it was easier to succumb to remaining stuck than working the energy to rise above it and break the bad mental habits. I was the object at rest….

Once I cleared out the mental blocks and old energy patterns life started getting easier. I was motivated to continue learning, growing and changing. I had goals and I was reaching them. I was also using hypnosis! Hypnosis is the best way I know to overcome the inertia of your mind. Why? Because you are entering the arena of your subconscious mind where all your habits and patterns are created and stored and releasing the old ways that don’t work for you anymore. But beware! By nature the subconscious mind is lazy! It likes keeping things the way they are, even if it means your health and well being are being jeopardized.

This is why working with a hypnotist is beneficial. The hypnotist knows how to communicate with your subconscious to create motivation and desire! Match that with your conscious desire to create positive change and you’ve got a powerful modality for healing to take place.

Where are you in regards to your goals and dreams right now? Do you say you want to: quit smoking, lose weight, start exercising, eat healthier foods….but find yourself still doing the same old things? Or maybe you go for a day or a week with your new action plan and then revert back to the old because it’s ‘too hard’ to stick with the diet or get outside and move your body. You need to overcome the inertia of your mind. You need to create a burning desire within yourself and find someone to help you keep your commitment to stay true to your goal!

Naturally, I suggest and encourage you to seek out a qualified hypnotist in your area. And if you can’t find one – I’m available via Skype. I also have a special going on right now for personalized hypnosis recordings. I usually don’t advertise like this but I am passionate about helping you be successful in creating positive change!

Here’s the link to my recordings. Take a moment to browse the rest of my site while you’re there!

Imagine what it would be like if . . . you could do anything you wanted to do, you couldEnglish: A skeleton key. Español: Llave antigu...achieve anything you wanted to achieve, you could travel to any destination you desired. Wouldn’t that be amazing? Now imagine you could do all those things with two simple words: permission granted!

That’s right. Permission granted.

I want to attract more money into my life by my business being more successful. Permission granted!

I want to have a healthy, loving, intimate relationship. Permission granted!

I want to eat better foods and exercise and lose weight. Permission granted!

I know what you’re thinking; “It can’t be that easy. I said ‘permission granted’ and nothing happened.” Let me tell you why.

Growing up, we had to ask permission to do just about anything. Staying up late to watch TV, going outside to play, even asking permission from our teacher to get a hall-pass to use the bathroom. Our life centered around asking someone else to grant us permission to do what we wanted. Our subconscious mind was being conditioned to look outside ourselves to an authority figure to tell us what we could or could not do. We never learned to be our own authority figure.

Did you buy into the belief that says you have to work hard for financial success? Money doesn’t grow on trees, you’ll never have a relationship and be happy? These are all the blocks in your subconscious mind making it difficult to create the lifestyle you so rightly deserve.

Hypnosis is the fastest, most effective way to go into the subconscious mind and release those blocks. In hypnosis, you can make friends with your subconscious mind and become your own authority figure. Hypnosis activates the key to unlock your subconscious mind to accept new positive thoughts.

You can actually have the direct experience of creating positive change, whatever that change may be. Anything that says you can’t, it won’t happen, it’s impossible is simply an illusion. A statement from A Course In Miracles says, ‘if it’s real it can’t be threatened, if it’s unreal it doesn’t exist’. Clean out those unreal beliefs! You can do it. Permission granted!

  Meditation and hypnosis are often seen as one and the same. The truth is, they are not. Let me explain why.
Meditation is an emptying out process. It’s a time to quiet the mind and still the thoughts that run through your head all day long. To properly meditate, you need to stop thinking. However, this isn’t as easy as that may sound.

When I first started meditating, my mind was going something like this: “Okay, I’m going to sit here for thirty minutes and not think. Okay, now I’m thinking about how I’m not suppose to be thinking. Right, now I’m thinking about what to eat for dinner and that cute little dress I saw in the store window the other day.”

Sound familiar? Once we’re caught up in the thought stream of the world, it’s hard to unhook. The thought stream is from the analytical part of our mind, the conscious mind. We can stay caught-up in thoughts for a very long time. Often, those thoughts are not even our own!
Why meditate? Science has proven that meditation helps lower blood pressure, release stress and gives you an overall feeling of peace and well-being. Even with the high stress and tension people experience in their fast paced daily lives, meditation helps to slow things down and puts life in a different perspective. The problems are still there, but now there is a different way to handle the situations.

Spiritually, we meditate to re-connect ourselves to our Source. Whatever name label you have for “God”, meditation is a time of quiet inner-reflection, to become united with the God of your heart. Prayer is when you talk to God, meditation is when you get quiet and allow God to talk to you. It’s difficult to hear with all that babble going on!

If meditation is an emptying out process, what are we releasing? The thoughts that have you believing there is something wrong with you. The thinking you entertain that says you are not already connected with God, or that you have to be good and perfect to be accepted by your Creator. In short – the hypnotic state you’ve been in that has you believing you are not okay, just the way you are.

Hypnosis is a natural state of mind we go into everyday. Getting caught up in a good book or movie, studying for an exam and losing track of time are simple examples of being in hypnosis. To go into hypnosis and enter into the subconscious mind, you must by-pass the critical factor of the conscious mind – the thought stream!

This can be done quickly, easily and effectively. One does not need to be relaxed to go into trance, relaxation is a by-product of having been in hypnosis. Why? Because you have relaxed the body and mind together, which allows the nervous system to flush out all the pent-up stress and tensions. This is why one hour of hypnosis is equal to eight hours of sleep; the mind is guided into slowing down the brainwaves, simply by following the instructions given by the facilitator. When the mind relaxes, it is able to let go.

Why isn’t hypnosis the same as meditation? When you are being guided through a creative visualization session by someone, it may be called meditation, but you are establishing selective thinking based upon what the person is saying. Spiritually, we are in hypnosis all the time. People are “asleep” to who they are as a spirit, living in a body. They are in a trance state of believing to be the body/personality, with all the issues and problems causing the stress and tensions.

Hypnosis is a wonderful, powerful tool to locate the reasons as to why you are stuck believing certain things, such as those mentioned above. Once you find the source of the problem, you can let it go! Once you let it go, your mind has been emptied out from that quality of thinking.

This is why hypnosis is a great way to enhance meditation. You can use the scientific approach of hypnosis to enter into your subconscious mind. Once in trance, you can release the old thinking patterns. Once you’ve done that and your mind is clear, you can move into a quiet state of meditation. You’ve reconnected with yourself as spirit. I see this in people all the time; they’ve been guided through a trance/hypnosis session and when it’s over, they are incredibly quiet – no thoughts, just peace and quiet.

That’s the meditative state. The door to get there? Hypnosis. It’s the fastest way to hop out of the thought stream. But hypnosis will not take you through that door. Hypnosis will show you why things are the way they are, and how things can be if you choose to alter your thinking. Once you’ve done that, now meditate. This is the only way to awaken to your higher good, and all healing is awakening to who we are, isn’t it? Yes it is!
