The week between Christmas and New Year is a great time to reflect.
Everything will be okay! You have made it this far. Don’t give up, a new year is about to start. Think of it as; out with the old negative thinking and in with a new positive mind set!
Make it happen this year, to stay positive, loving and kind towards yourself and others. Minute by minute, hour by hour, day by day, week by week, month by month. Slip up? Start over! No worries. You are powerful, you alone control your thoughts, which in turn directs your life. Hypnosis In Seattle, Vera Olson
Let’s talk about not giving up! I won’t let fear get the best of me.
I just turned on Pandora …. Wondering what I should write about…. The song, “You’ve Got A Friend” by James Taylor started playing- When you are down and troubled and nothing is going right, just call out my name and you know, wherever I am.. I’ll come running… When that song came out in 1971, I was 13 years old – Yup, that’s right, I am 57 – I often need to do the math to figure out my age. Maybe some people feel their age in their body, mind and spirit… But I feel younger in my body, younger yet in my mind- but my spirit feels older to me. That’s a nice thought, an old spirit. My spirit, comprises my memories, it’s my emotions of love and understanding.
One problem I have had in feeling younger in my body is thinking I can physically do something that I can’t… for instance: a month ago, I took a big fall as I was jumping across a deck I had just stained. I banged my head against the door. That’s right, I banged my head up against the wall! What did I learn? Like with my words before I speak, make sure to use the right words- Before I jump, unless it’s into water, don’t do it! Actually, I blamed the fall on my loosely fitted shoes. After my ego was healed, I realized that it wasn’t just my shoes.
So, you know what! I have decided not to let this hold me back- I just need better training! I need to get stronger, leaner- I have since jumped that jump and made it! Let’s talk about not giving up! I won’t let fear get the best of me. What is it that you have failed at? Whatever it is, don’t let it hold you back- You have the resources, figure it out and keep trying.
It was nice to have a friend come home and put ice on my bump, and check my pupils and ask me my name. Since 1975, my husband has been my best friend- Young in my mind, remembering my youth and not willing to let go of it.
Thank you too Emily for laughing at me, I mean, with me 🙂

With the pace and demands of modern life, many people feel stressed and over-taxed. We need to find time for fun. We often hear people say that there is not enough time in the day to get everything done. We are stressed and tired, this puts our bodies in the sympathetic mode of fight or flight- It can affect our health, and overtime can be very harmful. This is when we need to STOP and meditate. Meditation/hypnosis/prayer gives us more time by making our minds calmer and more focused. If you have never done meditation/hypnosis you could start out with just 5-10 minutes of simple breathing meditation. As you train yourself to relax into a blissful pleasant state you will be able to give yourself a longer time spent in mediation/hypnosis.
In meditation/hypnosis in seattle/prayer you could either deliberately reflect upon a thought, such as love, patience, harmony- whatever it is that you are needing to feel at peace. Mediation/hypnosis is meant to heighten your awareness with your soul. We all have a great inner awareness that doesn’t get revealed often enough. To become one with your God, a centered and perfect place to be. It is your very own personal space and time to practice your discipline of oneness connected to the life breath. Another mediation could be to let go of all thought and just to stay centered and focused on your breathing, this can be very relaxing and powerful as well. The main thing to remember is that with practice of meditation/hypnosis you will go deeper, not because I say so but because it is your natural ability to do so. You can use hypnosis to get fun back into your life.
Meditation/hypnosis in seattle/prayer helps us to understand our unique selves, and to connect ourselves fully with God and the oneness of the universal breath. We can learn how to transform our mind. To choose positive thoughts of peace and happiness. In mediation we can overcome our limiting negative self beliefs and cultivate our God given right to be in perfect harmony with the universe. Thoughts are energy, we are energy and we have the power to transform ourselves. We can develop this sense of spirit that stays with us throughout of day. We already have many disciplines that we do in a day. such as; brush our teeth, shower, wash our dishes, answer emails, return phone calls. Meditation/hypnosis is the most important discipline we can do for ourselves, to calm our body, mind and soul into a deep awareness. We will then be able to listen to our great inner wisdom and knowledge. Our God made us so spectacular that we have all we need within us, it is there to connect with. It is an amazing journey to connect with your inner self.

Help it’s that time of year again. Hypnosis In Seattle can help you to see the trees for the forest. Trees have been on my mind a lot lately. If a person wanted to compare themselves to a tree, you can find many analogies. Take for instance the seasons, in autumn the leaves on the trees fall being a nuisance for many people to either rake up, or leave them there to rot. In the summer we welcome the leaves for shade. Many of us can think of our families in the same way. We can all be a nuisance and trouble at times, but when storms come families can be a refuge and bring comfort. Though, some of us can be like a tree in the forest that is over bearing and limits the growth below. Ask yourself, if you were a tree, what kind of tree would you want to be? What is your favorite tree? What tree do you see? Mine would be one with plenty of room to expand my roots, free to let my leaves dance in the wind. The sound of rustleing leaves in the breeze to me is a peaceful and reassuring sound. I would like to have my branches spreading out to create a welcome environment within my sphere of influence, i.e. drip line. It is important to see the trees for the forest, hypnosis in Seattle can help you see the trees.
It is that time of year again, a little pruning. I do not want to be cut up or cut down- A little pruning is good to be healthy and to grow in the right way. My tree would avoid low growing strubs full of drama and danger that promote weeds and invasive plants, like ivy which can choke off a healthy tree. Are you getting closer to seeing your tree? Heavy undergrowth create a place for fire. We can think of those people in our lives who are clingers and negative dream killers. (see last weeks blog) We can’t avoid them but we can keep them at a safe distance. My tree promotes all positives things, we all can create an environment that promotes healthy growth in our sphere of influence.
We can use trees as an emotional connection analogy, not a physical. My husband sees himself as a tall poplar because they are kind of sentinels. He thinks of them as watchers and protectors from the wind, especially when they are all lined up together. My husband has always enjoyed team work.
It is that time of year again. A lot of people come to me dreading the holidays, with all the expectations that we put on ourselves and others. What I do as a hypnotherapist through the sub conscious mind, is to reverse negative thoughts. Such as; “You now look forward with joy the holiday season, you look forward to being with family….. you choose to feel the love… you fill your heart with the simple joys of the season. You choose to be kind to yourself because you are worthy and deserving of all goodness. Your heart is full of gladness, you look at others in a more positive way and you stay positive.” Nearly everyone’s comment on completing a session will say “I feel lighter”.
Many of us have been greatly blessed with many wonderful people in our lives. One of them for me is the friendship of Idamae, she is now 94, I have known her for 24 years. We have done many wonderful activities together. She is one of the most gracious women I have ever known. She has had a great influence on me. She makes everyone that she comes into contact with feel special and loved. She is that tree I discribed. I do not want to limit myself, but honestly I can’t imagine being all that she is but I just did imagine! I imagined a tree in my mind, it is big, it gives a lot, it is strong, healthy and wise. I encourage you to imagine what kind of tree life you would choose. It is a little meditation. How would your tree impact your sphere of influence? Close your eyes, now imagine, sense and feel that you are there, see yourself where you want to be. The kind of person you want to be. Does your tree live in a manicured garden or in a native natural meadow? Focus and stay centered and it will come to you.
A few nights ago I dropped in on Idamae, over a cup of tea I asked her a few questions. My first was, “how have you handled the holidays with all the dynamics?” her answer was to “roll with it” and when you have guests give them a merry welcome.” I asked, how do you handle disapointment? she said, “with a smile”. Do you see the tree for the forest yet?
It is up to you, it is your choice, to slow down and take a deep breathe. It is your choice to go inside your heart and feel the love that surrounds you. To go into your heart and mend what needs mending. Let tears come when needed, release and let go of all that is holding you back from experiencing joy. Forgive yourself, forgive others. We all have a great inner intelligence, it knows just what to do and how to do it. Trust your great inner intelligence, your great inner wisdom.
I choose to be around people who are positive and give me room to be myself. People who inspire me to become a better person. Then I think, what good is that if I am only around positive people? It’s not that I go out and seek negative people but when they enter my sphere of influence, I pray I will find the words to have a positive influence. Hypnosis In Seattle can help you see the trees.
Hypnosis can help you can see your trees.
Hypnosis In Seattle can help you enhance your life.
I awoke early this morning from a disturbing dream. It made me think that I should probably invest in a dream catcher.
You have probably seen a Native American dream catcher but do you know the story of how it came to be? Become a dream maker, enhance your life with hypnosis.
The story (goes more or less) this way….
There was a band of Native Americans with many of its children experiencing terrible night dreams. This caused the parents great concern and so they called a council meeting with the elders to figure out what could be done. With the parent’s concern in mind, the elders called upon the Great Spirit. The Great Spirit told the elders to make a net to catch the negative dreams before they could enter the children’s minds as they slept. The band came together and created the net-like catcher, and the dream catcher has been a part of Native American culture ever since. Hypnosis In Seattle can help you catch your dream and enhance your life.
To me, dream catchers are one of the most fascinating traditions of Native Americans. The traditional dream catcher was intended to protect the sleeping individual from negative dreams, while allowing positive dreams to pass. The positive dreams would slip through the hole in the center of the dream catcher and glide down the feathers to the sleeping person below. The negative dreams would get caught up in the web and dissipate when the first rays of the sun struck them.
I love that the tribe members would go to the elders with their concern over negative dreams. I love that my ancestors took serious the emotional well being of their people. They were in tune with nature because they lived with nature. It wasn’t that they lived each day as if it were their last but rather it being their first. They were optimistic rather than pessimistic.
This past summer while I was spending the summer in Santa Fe, NM, I was walking past a shop and heard the most beautiful Native American flute music. It drew me in like the Pied Piper. I decided that I needed to feed my soul by learning the flute. My husband and I usually run our purchases past each other first so I talked to him and told him about wanting to buy a flute — he simply said, “No, you probably won’t play it.”
I was hurt and told him, “You are a dream stealer!” Oh my gosh! He felt so bad at my remark that he immediately and sincerely replied, “YES, please fulfill your dreams.”
My flute brings me great joy and I love playing it. I understand why my sweet husband thought I wouldn’t -It isn’t the intention of most people to be dream stealers, and the majority don’t even realize that they are doing it.
The moral of this story is to never allow the disapproval or negativity of dream stealers to destroy your dreams. Especially if it is something that you believe will truly enhance your life, or more importantly, feed your soul. Be the Dream Maker!
