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.

At Hypnosis In Seattle in our sacred space, our focus is on providing mind wellness to help you begin or continue your journey of wholeness- Body, mind and spirit.
Having your own sacred space can be as simple as in your own mind-One helpful technique is concentrating on a candle flame. Simply stare at the small tip of the wick and block out all other thoughts. When you get distracted, go back to focusing on the candle flame. Also, you can use other objects like a dot on the wall or ceiling. The important thing is that you focus only on one thing at a time. Another way to learn focused attention is through the use of mantra. A mantra is the repetition of a sacred word. While repeating your mantra you can use prayer beads- For example, you might repeat the mantra AUMM with each bead. Repeating a mantra will relax your mind by keeping yourself on a single thought.
Once you have learned to focus on one thought at a time, you will now be ready to obtain no thought at all. To obtain a silent mind is difficult but once you have- the experience is powerful.

When a thought appears- make a conscious decision to reject it from your mind. In time you will be capable of allowing or rejecting thoughts. You can decide to be the master of your thoughts. You do not have except nonsense that is trying to occupy your mind.
Through meditation and hypnosis you attain the power to control your thoughts. Be gentle on yourself, a silent mind takes time to achieve. It takes time and practice. There is nothing really else to it- meditation is a natural “drug” for relaxation it can be a simple and spontaneous action. For many of us we must first undo years of living with a complicated mind.
