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!

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!

Love & Blessings to all who wander by to read this

Fences of a Federal Prison in the U.S.

Image via Wikipedia

Imagine this: You were incarcerated for murders at the age of 20 in 1965. You spent 46 years in prison. Now you are free. You are released into a city where you don’t know anyone. You have no place to live. When you went into prison the majority of Americans were black or white and racial wars were high. Now you are out and there are Mexicans, Asians, all sorts of nationalities and most people are driving new cars. You see people walking along the sidewalks talking to themselves. You wonder – is everyone in this town crazy? Someone tells you no, they are talking on their cell phone which is attached to their ear. What’s a cell phone? You feel completely over whelmed. The world has moved forward too fast while you were gone.

You are standing in line at a market. The person behind you gets a bit too close, bumps against you and you jump, wondering if you’re about to be knifed. Oh wait, I’m free. But your body is still reacting to the survival tactics of hyper-vigilance and always being on guard to survive.

You think about the ‘family’ you formed during those 46 years of prison; those who you ate meals with and walked the yard together with every day. Your mind flashes back to that one day when your buddies were going to walk out in the yard. You didn’t want to go because it was raining. They try to get you to go outside with them. No, I don’t want to get wet. They go. Awhile later they come back in. Minus one. One of your family members was killed in the yard. You still feel the pain of your choice to stay in that day, knowing you were the best fighter in the group. Maybe your friend would still be alive today.

As a hypnotist at a drug/alcohol rehab center, I have been working with people who have been imprisoned for a variety of reasons from drugs and alcohol to murder. I’ve learned that there are not too many programs to help the ex-con make an easy transition from prison to freedom. And although my mission is not to reform the prison systems, I have a new-born passion to use hypnosis as a tool to help these people deal with the everyday challenges they now face; normal activities you or I would never think twice about doing.

Hypnosis helps with stress management: I teach them different coping skills to help with the stress of reacclimating to civilian life. I also use hypnosis to alleviate their PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder) because living in prison is somewhat akin to being in a war zone – you have to figure out how to stay alive.

Hypnosis helps release the emotional pain: Most of the men I’ve worked with carry old emotional pain pictures stemming back to the crime they committed. One man said he still thinks about the life he took some 30 years ago. And though he knows he’s not the same person he was back then, the pain is still with him. Hypnosis offers relief. The emotions are washed away.

Hypnosis helps with motivation and goal setting: We work out a goal plan to help them start building a new life. Long term goals and short-term objectives. Hypnosis helps them stay motivated with each step and also brings them to any inner blocks or saboteurs in their subconscious mind that would prevent them from achieving each goal.

Hypnosis helps with self-confidence: Using special Ego strengthening techniques hypnosis helps to re-structure the subconscious mind so they feel confident about the new changes they are embracing in life.

Yes, hypnosis works wonders to help people during life challenges and transitions!
