Inner magic! What a great idea, do you even know that you have inner magic, or perhaps you know you do, but you don’t know how to access it? In either case would you like to know how to access it? It’s much easier than you think, but first let’s just chat about why you even want to!
At the start of a new year, there is no better time to think about what you want to achieve this year and how you are going to make that happen for yourself! But do you have a plan?
We don’t plan to fail, instead we fail to plan. Without a plan, how will you create the outcomes you want, instead you end up with the “outcomes you get”, which likely don’t match up with what you actually want!
You’ve probably already done this for your business/career, but have you done this for your health? Even if you have done this for your business and career, have you set yourself up to achieve your goals the easy way, or the hard way? AND have you ever stopped to think about what your life might look like if you didn’t have your health?
I know what it ends up looking like ‒ it ends up as 10 years in a nursing home, like the average N. American today ‒ I’m sure that is not what you’re building into your plan. And I’m sure your financial plan doesn’t have you spending $108,000 / year on a nursing home for those 10 years either ‒ hopefully those funds will go towards some amazing travel or other passion of yours! Don’t let this be you! Plan your health, the way you plan your work goals.
I mentioned that there is an easy way and a hard way to achieve your goals ‒ most people think that it takes hard work, effort and force to attain their goals ‒ they simply haven’t been taught how to do this the easy way. They are using the wrong part of their brain ‒ their conscious mind.
When you instead learn how to tap into your inner magic ‒ your unconscious mind, you can set yourself up for success in all areas of your life ‒ career, health, finances, relationships, spirituality ‒ that comes much more easily!
When you just rely on your conscious mind, you are only tapping into 10% of what is available to you, but when you access your unconscious mind you can access the other 90%! Think about it, your conscious mind is responsible for thinking, logic, problem solving, memory retrieval, but your unconscious mind is responsible for feeling, storing all your memories/experiences, and for keeping you alive, despite what you do! Yes it is responsible for keeping your heart beating, every breath you take and for digesting your food, all without you giving it a second thought. We’ve been taught in school to use our conscious mind, but reality is we need to learn to use our unconscious mind, because all learning, all behaviour, all change, happen in our unconscious mind.
Most of us simply ignore our unconscious mind but through the use of hypnosis we can have BOTH your conscious and unconscious minds work together. Instead of using just 10% of your mind you can use 100% of your mind! Imagine how much easier it will be to achieve your goals when you learn to use 100% of your mind! What we can then do with hypnosis is literally limitless!
Some examples are:
Changing behaviour, such as stopping smoking or biting fingernails
Supporting healthy weight loss or weight gain
Releasing anxiety / overcoming depression
Resolving sleep issues, chronic pain
Helping improve health overall or resolve chronic health issues
Love sales calls or follow-up or other aspects of your work/business that you don’t currently enjoy.
Just google “Hypnosis for…” and see how long the list is that shows up!
Instead of the painfully slow way of trying to create new habits through therapy, coaching, or relying on willpower, tap into the easy way using hypnotherapy. When we use hypnotherapy we are giving suggestions of what we want to focus on, to our unconscious mind, to make it happen. Your thoughts impact your words, which impact your behaviour and so on, so we simply change your thoughts, to change your behaviour!
So What Is Hypnosis?
It is deep relaxation (when was the last time you gave yourself permission to enjoy deep relaxation?)
10,000X greater focus
50,000X greater accountability
Best for intelligent people (yes, that’s you!)
Best for creative people (and yes, that’s you too ‒ even if you don’t realize it yet!)
Gives you much greater control, due to your increased focus
On the flip side, let me share what hypnosis isn’t, as many people are confused about this:
It Isn’t Sleep
Hypnosis drops you into your Theta brain wave, the most healing brain wave, allowing your body to restore and heal itself, while changing behaviours. Meditation drops you into a Theta brain wave too, but it doesn’t focus on changing behaviours like Hypnotherapy does. And 5 minutes of hypnosis is equivalent to 1 hour of sleep ‒ that’s how restorative it is for you!
It Isn’t Being Gullible / Being Weak Minded / Being Under Someone Else’s Control
Under hypnosis, you will not do anything that your unconscious mind would not normally allow you to do ‒so if you wouldn’t normally run around naked in public, then you won’t under hypnosis either (even though the movies like to suggest this ‒ it’s not true ‒ your unconscious mind is still in control!).
It Isn’t Brain Washing
This is all negative stuff ‒ you’ve seen it in the movies! There are 5 requirements that must all be done in order to induce brain washing! I promise you, none of them are done during hypnotherapy!
It Isn’t Unconsciousness
We work with your conscious and unconscious mind working as one, but you are not actually unconscious.
Did You Know You Already Spend 90% of Your Day In Trance?
So why not learn to put it to good use, by using your time in trance to create behaviour change? Some examples of when you are in trance are:
When you drive from point A to point B and get to point B and don’t remember the last 10 minutes (or more) of your drive!
Almost any time you are watching TV or a movie ‒ and especially when you watch a show like “Superman” and accept that he can fly rather than allowing your conscious mind to get in the way and tell you that isn’t possible!
When you go into a room to get something and can’t remember what you went into the room to get! No, it’s not memory loss ‒ you are in trance!
When you open the refrigerator and can’t see what you need, so you ask a family member who points out that it’s right in front of your eyes ‒ no it isn’t your eyesight that is the problem ‒ you’re in trance!
So you already know how to be in trance, and the reality is that all hypnosis is self-hypnosis ‒ because you are in control and deciding to allow yourself to get into a deeply relaxed trance state. All you need to learn how to do now is form suggestions that your unconscious mind can deliver upon for you through self-hypnosis.
If you are a coach or a practitioner wanting to help your clients surpass their goals, while also adding a revenue stream to your business, you can take a weekend training + exam, to become certified by the American Board of Hypnotherapy. You are then able to use hypnosis when working with your clients 1:1.
I am offering both these courses this month and excited to share them with you, so that you can make 2023 your best year yet.
Learn Self Hypnosis is a 1 day masterclass, which also includes a pendulum workshop, to give you tools you can use in your everyday life, working with your unconscious mind.
Unlimited Power of Hypnosis is a designation optional weekend course teaching a number of inductions, as well as how to incorporate this into your business as an added revenue stream.
From the US medical association in 1958. A survey of psychotherapy literature by Alfred A. Barrios, PhD, published in American Health magazine, revealed the following:
Psychoanalysis: 38 percent recovery after 600 sessions
Behaviour Therapy: 72 percent recovery after 22 sessions
Hypnotherapy: 93 percent recovery after 6 sessions
When we use the correct part of our brain to do the change work, it is quick, effective, and lasting. I invite you to stop doing things the hard way.
Hypnosis is a powerful tool I’m very grateful to be able to use in my own life, but also with my clients and to be able to share it with you through my training courses. We aren’t taught these skills in school or university, but they are invaluable for everyone of us!
If you haven’t been achieving your goals thus far, it’s simply because you are using the wrong part of your brain. Consider learning hypnosis so you can fully access all of your brain and step into the life you really dream of in 2023 and beyond!
