In hypnosis we access the subconscious mind which communicates with us through visualization and feelings. When we let go and relax into deeper levels of consciousness, the wisdom from within easily rises to the surface. We can understand where our beliefs originated and how our patterns have helped us or held us back, which allows us to understand what needs to shift to have what it is that we desire.
Hypnosis is a very dreamy experience and in this state we are very connected to our bodies, feelings, and visualizations. The subconscious also communicates with us through metaphor and the metaphors that exist within us are shared through the visuals that come to mind during a session. We can access the stories of who we are to better understand ourselves, as well as change the stories into new stories. It’s really very simple, but extremely powerful.
What does this process look like?
When you come in for a session you get to lie down and relax. You don’t need to do anything really, just lay down and let go of the idea of needing to do anything in particular (which I understand can be challenging for some people, and that’s ok). You get to be exactly the way that you are as you are.
People are often concerned about not being able to do it right, but really there is no right or wrong way to relax and use your imagination and that is really all that we are doing. We get to let your imagination run, and the imagination and subconscious go hand in hand. When we imagine with intention we connect into those stories and deeply rooted beliefs, so that we can better understand where you are coming from which gives us the information to get you to where you would like to be. Just like getting directions to a physical destination, we first need to know where we are starting.
In awakening, we realize what has been limiting us and keeping us from having what we desire or what has been keeping us small.
This is your “ah ha” moment.
In that moment of understanding there is a huge release and a knowing that things will be different now.
They can be different, and they are different.
When you awaken, there is newness as well as the ability and excitement to experience new possibilities. You can actually feel the shifts taking place in your body and consciousness. You can feel with certainty that you are capable of what it is that you set out to do. It’s a physical experience as well as a deep knowing.
In awakening we are expanding consciousness, bringing more awareness to life and the experience of life. You do this for yourself, but you also do this for the loved ones around you and the world. Life opens and there are endless possibilities, as well as focus, clarity and follow through.
Awakening is the ability to be with what is. Imagine the most loving and nurturing parent. This parent is right there always when we need them, they hold us when we hurt, they see us, and they hear us. They are present, they watch and they are amazed by who we are and what we do. It’s their presents that really feeds us and lets us feel safe and loved.
In awakening we become this perfect parent to ourselves. We are able to offer a sense of presence and compassion to ourselves no matter what we are going through. This allows us to really embrace who we are and feel like we can really show up as our full selves safely in this world.
We are here on this planet to live, to grow, to learn, to play, and to explore. There are gifts present in every moment, every experience. In this practice we learn to embrace the gift of life and how to find the peace, love and joy that are available in every moment, even in the most messy, emotional and traumatic experiences of life.
We learn to embrace it all.
The first 5 sessions that I offer are about making change and becoming who you dream and truly desire to be. The follow up sessions are about awakening more and more fully to your full potential.
In this process we accept that life has its ups and downs, and is not going to be complete happiness and all of those feel good feelings all of the time. We do learn though that we have access to joy even in pain and struggle. Life continues to offer lessons and we learn to navigate with presence beauty and grace.
I am here as a guide and a check in point. I am here to help unfold the meanings behind the challenges and to help you access your inner wisdom and knowing. I am here to help you understand your true nature and all that you are capable of.
It is such a gift to witness people stepping into their power and fullness. I am grateful to be taking this journey with those who are ready and willing to fully live.
The premise of hypnosis is that within every person there exists a profound possibility, an untapped source of potential to create meaningful and lasting change in a person’s life.
For most people, access to this inner resource is limited because all of their energy and awareness stays on the surface of the mind, the part of the mind that is constantly evaluating, criticizing, and generally limiting the full range of motion available to a person. What is often not understood is that the nature of this mind is deeply informed and shaped by the much larger and influential subconscious mind. Deeply ingrained habits and ways of perceiving the world lie beneath the surface of our ordinary waking mind. Unexplored, these habits of perception continually exert their influence in our lives, keeping us chained to beliefs, attitudes, and feelings that often limit our full potential as human beings. The good news is that the subconscious mind is highly receptive to the power of suggestion. Tapping into this power of the subconscious mind to re-frame our experience is what hypnosis is all about. Whatever the need may be, changing self-defeating belief systems, dropping bad habits, or managing pain, hypnosis allows people to access their own internal power and apply it to any area of life in need of change.
Hypnosis works by inducing in the individual a deeply relaxed state of being which allows the conscious mind to be distracted and wander. With the conscious mind no longer dominant, the subconscious mind comes to the forefront, allowing the therapist to engage the power of suggestion to create change at a subconscious level. As the suggestions take root at this level our beliefs, feelings, and attitudes are in turn transformed, resulting in new ways of feeling and behaving in our live.
