Are you Stuck?

We all have times in our lives when we just plain feel stuck. The challenges of owning our own businesses, working for someone else in a job that is no longer challenging, even feeling no forward movement in a relationship can have us feeling like the walls are closing in on us.

The remarkable thing about Hypnosis is that it effectively aids in seeing past the blocks,  inviting clarity in these kinds of situations; allowing us to see paths and solutions that were hidden from our view.

In my 'Getting Unstuck' session, I help you to find yourself forward in time, imagining what life looks like on the other side of the challenges you currently face, noticing  the solutions that brought you to this new place and helping you to take action for a new and wonderful you.

Getting Unstuck can mean the difference between lackluster living and finding brilliance in your life. I invite you to call and see how this session can be right for you.

Fulfillment Friday ~ Vision Board Class!

Last week I gave away John Assarof's Complete Vision Board Kit through my FaceBook page and since then I have had a number of people ask me how to create their own Vision Board. I enjoy doing my board to reflect dreams and goals for the coming year so the Fall is a great time to start preparing for this project. You'll want to focus and get very clear about what you would like to manifest. Then it's time to create your board.

This is the Vision Board that I mentioned in the last post. In the time since making this board I went camping numerous times, a trip to Colorado, got the camera bag, added horses to my life, started a new business and made space in my heart for a new puppy who will be coming to us in the New Year. So really the only thing that has not yet come to pass is getting my motorcycle license. I really credit doing this each year with achieving my goals and adding brilliance to my life.

Vision Boards are fun, easy to make and a cool group activity so I've decided to offer a couple of classes just in time for the New Year. I hope you can join me to create a piece of art that will help you capture your dreams.

It's Another Fulfillment Friday! The Vision Board And Drawing Announcment

NNoteI love to help people hone down their focus to the point of being able to achieve the things they desire and there are a number of ways to do it. One of my favorite tools is the vision board.  Creating a vision board assists you in getting your desires by allowing you to keep them uppermost in your mind. In it's most basic sense, by hanging it where you are going to look repeatedly (like by your desk) you are constantly aware of your goals and tuned in to the opportunities to achieve your desires as they come along. But there is something more than that...there is a synergy that happens when you are constantly aware of something. Every thought has a frequency. Thoughts send out a magnetic energy that seems to bring that which we think about, feel about, closer.

Example: I wanted a particular camera bag and put the exact bag on my board. Months later, I went to a trade show that I had not planned on going to that year. The company that made the bag was there and selling that bag not only at a reduced rate but with bonus additional covers and I had just booked a large job. I own that bag now.

Sometimes you get a surprise with your board choices. Same board, different goal. I wanted to make sure I went camping A LOT more that year and picked a beautiful photo of a tent that looked just like mine near a lake with a mountain in the background (specifically The Rockies). This was a year where we had decided to spend our vacation budget on a lot of local trips and we did go camping alot...but imagine my surprise when the opportunity came up to visit a dear friend in Telluride, Colorado, spending a week horseback riding surrounded by the grandeur of, you guessed it, The Rocky Mountains!

I love Vision Boards and make at least one every year, changing or even re-doing it as my desires change. I consider it one of my most important manifesting tools and hope you will, too.

Hypnosis And Pain Control or Why You Never Argue With A Horse.

When a horse decides not to move brute force rarely wins...a hard lesson learned when I sprained my back a couple of weeks ago. Throwing my shoulder into 1200 lbs. of "Yes, that IS MY HOOF on top of your foot" did nothing to move the horse and bought me a world of pain. Tough lessons, painful lessons and one that has helped me gain more experience in using hypnotic techniques to lessen my own pain, whether a client's or my own. I have to say that for myself, I find it much harder to guide myself into hypnosis than have someone do it for me, so don't be discouraged if you find it challenging at first. Like anything it takes practice, practice and more practice. I'd like to share today a method for using hypno for pain control, but first the usual disclaimer...I am not a Doctor nor do I play one on TV. This entry is for educational and entertainment use only ;-), and you should always see your Doctor to determine the severity of your condition and not just jump into this type of hypnosis. With that said, Here is what I do for pain release and what I have done for my clients. It's a process called Color Therapy. After centering and relaxing myself I visualize the area of my pain with a color that for represents the pain which for me is bright, glowing, vibrating red. I take deep cleansing breaths and then start imagining that the air that I am breathing in is of a healing color, which to me is a green or blue. Each inhalation of air I direct toward the source of the pain and imagine I am blowing that color onto that glowing red center in the pain. With each breath that I blow on it I imagine the red getting dull, fading to pink, fading to white becoming normal. With each exhalation I see the red leaving my body through my breath, blowing out clouds of ever lightening red/pink air knowing I have replaced the color and pain with cooling green/blue healing air and color. I'm glad to share this method with you and hope that you got two things from this message to lessen your pain with the use of color therapy and never to tackle a brick wall, err, horse.

So, I've got This Cool Self Hypnosis Mp3...

Many people are recognizing the power of the mind to help achieve their goals and self hypnosis products are more accessible than ever, so it's tempting to think that a $20 disc is all that is needed to lose that extra 15 lbs. or stop smoking. Often these can help, but there are multiple reasons that a certified hypnotherapist can be more benefit.

The biggest reason is the flexibility that is offered when working with your trained professional. An Mp3, while convenient, may not be in a style that resonates with you. By working 'live', your hypnotherapist can switch gears, changing the wording, tone of voice and tempo to more easily make sense to your subconscious mind.  As an example, perhaps your mp3 contains visualization that has you walking on the beach when you really don't like the ocean...through consultation your therapist can change that visualization to the place you most love, maybe a winding forest path to a cabin in the woods.

Your hypnotherapist might employ a style that includes dialogue, having a conversation with you while you are in trance. This can be much more effective than simply listening to a directed stream of words.

When you work in a 'live' session, you are able to relax into a much deeper state than using a recording. Because you go deeper, you may find that you have much faster results. Some people find the results they are looking for in as little as one session, while it can sometimes take weeks to receive the same level of satisfaction from a recording.

Hypnosis, whether accessed through recordings or through the services of a trained professional is mind expansive and effective to break past bad habits while supporting new, more positive changes. It allows a degree of relaxation unparalleled while helping you to create brilliance in your life.
