Hypnosis : Using the Subconscious Mind to Grow Yourself

By on Jan 17, 2018 in Blog | 0 comments

Hypnosis: Using the Subconscious Mind to Grow Yourself Sometimes, we tend to limit ourselves to our beliefs, and when we talk of “belief” here, it’s not religion or faith. It’s those things that we think are made to be the way they are now and cannot be changed. You probably have heard of the story of the young elephants that were tethered to strong ropes tied to the ground. The baby elephants couldn’t free themselves because they didn’t have the strength to pull themselves from the ropes. So the baby elephants abandoned their attempts to free themselves and accepted the leash to be part of life. What happened is that the elephants had believed they don’t have the strength to break free from the ropes. After many years, they were now adult elephants and with much strength. We, as humans, are held by beliefs and these limit us from making steps ahead. We remain grounded in one position and just day-dream. However, we can use the subconscious mind to allow us to better ourselves. Hypnosis can help improve our lives, it can help to alter those beliefs that pull us back. Where hypnosis is applied, it allows an individual to bypass the conscious mind that tells us things are just made to be the way they are, and approach the subconscious mind directly. The conscious mind is considered a watchman or doorkeeper of the subconscious mind. You cannot give instructions to your subconscious mind because they will be barred at the conscious mind level. To get directly to the subconscious mind, you need to put the conscious mind in a limbo, and here is where hypnosis comes in to play. Whenever you are unsatisfied with your life or a result of something makes you want to change your beliefs, and that’s the hardest part of it. Hypnosis offers a faster way of changing people’s beliefs and seeing opportunities, hope, happiness, and success where you previously couldn’t see. Probably you have been unable to make ends meet despite making numerous attempts to better yourself. You now feel that you are in a dead end and cannot succeed.

Get the Picture?

By on Nov 30, 2017 in Blog | 0 comments

Get the Picture? A lot of people are curious about how I do what I do– helping people bring change into their lives or what I call changing your reality; creating the life or reality you want instead of settling for the one you think you’re stuck with.In truth, making life changes–big or small–is a simple process, and it always, always requires changing the way our mind is working. Everything in our reality, good or bad happy or sad, positive or negative begins in the mind. Hypnotherapy and my Synthesis process all help to make those mind changes happen as quickly as possible, but as powerful as all the tools and methods may be, what MUST precede all that is having a clear understanding or “picture” of what it is you’re wanting. This notion may seem ridiculously obvious, and you’d be amazed at how many clients come to see me without that vital piece of the puzzle. They’re often not even aware of it until I ask them (in their first session) something like, “What do you want to accomplish through our work together?” They might answer with something like, “I want to be happier, or more successful,” or “I want to feel worthy of having ________.”  I then ask, “Well what does that mean to you, how will you know when you get there?” Quite often, the response to that question is a puzzled look sometimes combined with, “I don’t really know.” BUMMER– If you don’t know exactly what you want, how are you going to create it? And that’s what this episode is all about; how to begin the process of change, any change. It must and always begins with creating a very clear image or picture of what it is you want. How are you are going to look, what will it feel like, and how will you know when you get “it” whatever your “it” is. Enjoy! Please send in your your questions and comments and I will get to as many as I can. As always, if it’s a personal question you will receive a personal, and confidential response. And thanks in advance for sharing this with your...
