Hypnosis is a highly suggestible state of mind. We enter hypnosis before sleep and shortly after waking. In fact, when you are immersed in a good book or movie, you enter a mild form of hypnosis. Even while driving, you can enter hypnosis. Have you ever found yourself missing a turn or exit only to realize after you have been driving for a few minutes? Well, you had just experienced "highway hypnosis".
No Matter Where,
No Matter What,
No Matter When.
Hypnotic treatments have been utilized throughout human history and can be traced to ancient sleep temples in Ancient Egypt over 5,000 years ago.
These healing centers utilized darkened chambers, long rituals, and rhythmic prayers to create the hypnotic state, which provided answers to those who sought cures and enlightenment to whatever was ailing them, mentally, spiritually, and physically.
Today, through scientific discovery and dedicated professionals, we can create this hypnotic state without the mystery and subterfuge to help the client reprogram their learned behaviors.
Hypnosis is like a back door to the subconscious mind from where we can influence our desires, goals, ideas, and create changes, making it faster, easier, and a natural way to create permanent change in our lives.
Perhaps like you, I reached a point where I had to ask myself if I was living my best life, was I living at my full potential? For whatever reason, with each passing year, I felt a growing awareness that we are granted only so much time in our lives, and was I using mine to be truly happy, fulfilled, and purposeful? What was my contribution to the world going to be?
As those questions grew ever stronger in my consciousness, it awakened in me a curiosity to learn and seek what options and experiences were out there to offer me the answers and relief I was seeking.
Then one day an angel walked into my office and gave me a card for a hypnotherapist. I experienced spiritual and personal breakthroughs unlike anything else I had tried. The hypnotherapy helped me discover and, more importantly, access the powers within my own mind, my subconscious mind, that offered me the ability and path to transform my life.
One by one, from personal goals and habits to deeper issues of self-esteem, self-love, and prosperity vs. scarcity beliefs, hypnotherapy delivered what felt to me, an ideal and rapid, yet comfortable path to the life goals and purpose I was seeking.
My curiosity and enthusiasm for this wonderful healing modality and my encouragement from my own Hypnotherapist eventually lead to my enrollment in the Hypnosis Motivation Institute’s Nationally Accredited College of Hypnotherapy. Once there, I learned so many wonderful and fascinating tools to assist people with empowerment and personal transformation that my heart raced with excitement in every class.
During my clinical hypnotherapy internship, I had the good fortune to work directly with the Director of the Institute and key Senior Staff Instructors to learn to integrate all my prior learning experiences into my hypnotherapy practice, combining everything I had learned on my own path with the clinical hypnotherapy skills I had acquired at the College.
Today, I have found my life’s passion—reaching out my hand to others who are on or looking for the path of personal transformation. Nothing feels more fulfilling than to witness a client release their pain and discover their power and find their purpose. That’s what happened to me, and I would welcome the opportunity to help you.
There are two key concepts for understanding why hypnosis is such an important tool for creating life changes.
Homeostasis is our innate unconscious drive to “stay the same”, that is to say, resist all changes at a subconscious level. While we may desire a change in our feelings, reactions, or habits, at a deeper level, our subconscious defense mechanisms seek to preserve the status quo, i.e., resist all efforts to change. So while talking, planning, discussion, and rational understanding of behavior are all important concepts, they do not address our subconscious need to sabotage our success and/or efforts to change.
On a personal, spiritual and behavioral level, neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to change throughout an individual’s life. Our ability to changes beliefs, emotional responses, and behavioral habits is dependent on the flexibility of our mind.
Hypnosis, Therapeutic Imagery, NLP, mindfulness, and more are the tools used in hypnotherapy to facilitate the internal, emotional, behavioral flexibility need to "overcome the status quo" and release our subconscious needs to sabotage our success or resist our desires for change.
