Five Mind-Opening Things Hypnosis & Guided Imagery Can Do for You
In as little as one hour hypnosis can help you to make these positive changes in your life:
- Jump Starts! Recharge your battery to make decisions!
Tired? Stuck? Nothing moves you? Can't make a decision? Your unconscious mind knows exactly what needs to happen for you to move forward. It's just waiting to be listened to. Hypnosis & Guided Imagery will help your unconscious mind let your conscious mind know what to do. It's truly mind-opening!
- Access your own placebo effect — no Rx needed for pain, wellness!
The placebo effect is real. It is a powerful effect of the mind, the belief that “what I am taking into my body will cure me, make me feel good.” Incredible to think that your mind has that power. Well, it does. Through Hypnosis & Guided Imagery you can access that part of you. No pill, no side effects (except for relaxation!) just an hour spent with your own imagination and unconscious process.
If pharmaceutical companies could patent the placebo effect it would cost you BIG bucks for the Rx. The placebo effect is the most studied self-healing "medication" in the world. Think about it — every study of every pill has as its control the placebo — the sugar pill. And in thousands of studies world-wide the "sugar pill" is found to be as or more effective than the studied medication.
If you have a life-altering medical condition hypnosis & guided imagery can help you activate the part of your brain that knows what is needed for healing and well-being. I can help you put your own mind to work for your well-being.
- Increase your relaxation response & control your stress - lower blood pressue, tension and anxiety.
Listen, this is a biggie: Chronic states of stress can lower the immune response, effect sleep, trigger anxiety/depression, decrease concentration, memory & libido. And that's only the beginning! So it's really important that we learn how to decrease our body's response to stressful situations because know we can't eliminate stressful situations from our lives.
Beyond the fact that they are in themselves relaxing & calming hypnosis & guided imagery can reprogram your mental images to cue your mind-body to feel calm, cool & relaxed.
- Use the POWER OF POSITIVE THINKING to change negative thought patterns to positve ones & reduce anxiety, tension!
Negative thinking can be symptoms of anxiety and depression. It is well documented that depression & anxiety activate negative thinking patterns in the brain. And trauma memory creates an anxious hyper-vigilance — our unconscious mind constantly looking for what might be harmful. It becomes hard, if not impossible, to find what is good, what is joyful, what is positive in your life.
I use hypnosis & guided imagery to "deactivate" the traumatic memory and help you learn to refocus your mind on the positive. I use cognitive-behavioral therapy to give you tools to use your whole life.
The powerful combination of hypnosis and cognitive behavioral therapy can literally change your brain's activity. (Only licensed therapist's can practice cognitive-behavioral therapy). Hypnosis and guided Imagery can help give you tools to find the positive in your life. Integrating hypnosis & guided imagery with cognitive-behavioral approaches creates the bridge to bring unconscious awareness into your daily life.
- Create a positive vision for your life!
Worry warts wanted!
"If you can worry you know how to do imagery."
—David Bresler, Ph.D.
Worrying is envisioning something that isn't there and hasn't happened. If you can worry you are a perfect candidate to positively envision what you want in your life. Want to perfect that golf swing? Take a trip to Europe? Create a plan for your cookie business? Meet a loving partner? Whether it is a focus on your goals, dreams or desires Hypnosis & Guided Imagery are wonderful ways to envision your future, all without leaving the chair in my office.
Been reading popular books, watching videos about creating a positive vision for things to "manifest"? It's no secret - Hypnosis & Guided Imagery have been helping people embrace the power of positive thinking for thousands of years. You don't have to spend hours reading or watching. In just one hour I can help you envision your ideal self, your dreams, your hopes, what you long for and teach you to hold that vision both consciously and unconsciously.
AND I can show you how to make your own Vision Board. Vision boards are a tangible, creative expression of good things to come. With your vision board displayed in your own home your dreams & hopes stay in your conscious awareness. It's amazing the number of people who look at past vision boards discover how many of the things they envisioned came true. Here's an example of a vision board:
"Hi Judy, I wanted to let you know that the power of the vision board is not to be underestimated. Remember mine was about being in love for the first time in my life and wanting to pursue my love? Well, I am getting married! ... and I (neither one of us is really sure how it happened), decided to take the plunge and make a commitment to each other."
"I just wanted to let you know of this wonderful miraculous event in my life. And the vision board truly helped me secure my feelings and love for him. I had never put so much love energy into anything that I made. You can use me as a testimonial! Can't wait for the next seminar (as long as it isn't about fertility........)"
