Hypnosis In Seattle can help you with setbacks and anxiety. When you have a setback, what is your first thought? Many people may say “crap” (or another word for crap). Depending of course, on what the setback is. In general, what is your first response? Let me list a possibility; Fear rashes through your body, this anxiety causes your blood pressure to rise, your heart starts to race- This response is what we call our sympathetic nervous system, or you may have heard of it as our fight or flight response. The sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is part of the autonomic nervous system (ANA), which also includes the parasympathetic nervous system.
Basically, there are two ways of coping or dealing with a setback or situation. Sympathetic, just react, which is important if your setback is fleeing from danger, such as, the cave man running from a tiger. Today it might be a wreck that leads into traffic jam, making you unable to attend a child’s performance. The sympathetic mode of our ANA is very important initially, to keep us from immediate danger. Once, you are out of danger, it is very important to get yourself back into the parasympathetic mode, which activates tranquility. Our parasympathetic mode activates a tranquil feeling of peace and calmness. It is in this state that we are better able to make our best decisions.
This is the reason I chose to become a hypnotherapist, assisting people to learn basic techniques to stay in a calm and peaceful state of awareness. Hypnosis is, in my opinion, misunderstood by the vast majority of people. While in hypnosis, you are actually in a heightened awareness while in the most relaxed state. I help you to understand the importance of breathing deep into a relaxed body, mind and spirit. Also, I stress that the words we use do have power, they have the power to serve you or diminish you. Hypnosis In Seattle will help you with setbacks and anxiety. It’s not just our words, it is also our thoughts! Think of your thoughts as having legs, keep your thoughts for yourself and others always positive, holding your thoughts in a positive light. After each hypnosis In Seattle session, upon coming up and out of hypnosis, I tell my clients to stretch and smile. Yes, smile! Whether you feel like it or not, smile. A smile sends a massage to our brains that we are happy. So here’s a test, put a smile on your face, hold it and try to think of something negative…. It is nearly impossible…. Okay stop trying! Smile and think positive, that’s good!

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.

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!
The day Hypnosis helped my emotional health – is one that will never be forgotten. One day many years ago while I was at work- I got out of my chair to go to the printer in the other room, out of the blue I started limping. I was so upset and scared by this- I wondered, what was happening to me? After limping for a few days I went to a shoe store, where I was fitted with my first pair of Dansko shoes. I remember so clearly the great relief I felt, I said to myself, “It’s a miracle” – After having tears of thankfulness, I had a smile on my face all that day. The next week, I visited a Podiatrist. He was puzzled when I told him that I felt numbness under my two middle toes. He did an x-ray and told me that I had a Neuroma. However, he couldn’t figure out why my foot would be numb and why I didn’t feel any pain and I was told that I could never walk in sand again, I couldn’t walk bare foot, I could never wear high heals, all kinds of don’ts. Like a good patient, I shook my head in agreement. I left feeling sad. What I needed was hypnosis for emotional health.
It wasn’t until I was studying Hypnotherapy, we were getting started in medical, clinical session of our studies. My instructor asked the class, “who has a medical issue that you would like to work on”? He went around the the class, came to me, I told him that I had a Neuroma- He thought for a moment and said, “yeah, we can use that, that’s been cured before” – We then got into groups of three, I was the client with the issue, two of my classmates were the hypnotherapists. I have to be honest, I didn’t think it could be done, it was after all a medical condition, not an emotional health issue. I thought, “what the heck,” I’ll play along. My two hypnotherapist did a fantastic job, very thorough. What we discovered was at that same time in my life, when the numbness started, I felt lost and I felt left behind. My three daughters, had all graduated from college and moved on with their lives. I suppose you could call it empty nest syndrome. I just wanted to numb myself, so that the feelings wouldn’t be so strong. For many years I lived with the notion that I had a numbing Neuroma, and it would always be there. I excepted what I was told. I had no idea at that time that hypnosis would help my emotional health.
What we do as hypnotherapists is to ask the issue (numbness) what it needs to feel better. What my numbness wanted was “connectedness” …. My hypnotherapist used the words “day by day the numbing is going away, we use “day by day” because increments are often easier for most of us to except. My hypnotherapist than told my subconscious positive actions steps on staying connected and so on. One of the visualizations I chose for my therapy, was to walk in sand barefoot, and to wear shoes that I didn’t consider homely. Within a few days of my session, slowly, day by day, I noticed the numbness was subsiding. I admit, I was surprised- I thought, wow, that’s cool and amazing. Hypnosis helped my emotional health.
Soon after I left the Academy in Santa Fe, NM, I came home to Seattle. It was a Saturday afternoon, I said to my husband, “I am tired, how about a vacation to Hawaii?” The next morning we were on a flight to Maui. That is where I felt so liberated, I walked barefoot in the sand with no numbness what so ever. I walked near the water anyway- most of the sand was too hot to walk on. Although I am sure, if I put my mind to it, hot sand would not bother me either.
Slowly I am wearing cute shoes. I am not over doing it, I find myself still a bit cautious. I stay connected. What you should take away from this is that our emotions play a huge part in our physical wellness.
