Useful Truths – Designer Beliefs®

RapportHi, Hypnosis Friends!

We have a saying at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP about beliefs: they’re like wall paper.  If you like what you have up there, you keep it and enjoy it.  If you grow tired of it or it’s not what you want anymore, you tear it down and put up something new.  Changing it is easy.

People think beliefs are REAL things, tangible in the world like a chair or a book.  No. They are ideas.  And ideas are only real when we believe them to be.  And we can change what we believe at any time, in ways that are useful to us.  We do just that in our office, with our unique and trademarked service:  Designer Beliefs ®.  We custom design and help you adopt useful beliefs.

Henry Ford, the automaker, said it succinctly:  “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re right!”  Absolutely.  The difference between success and procrastination or apathy is belief.  The difference between taking action and just idle wishing, is belief. Belief moves us.

If a man comes into our office to quit smoking and says:  “I’m a nicotine addict.  I’m a hard core smoker, been doing it for 20 years.  It’s such an addiction that I know I will be smoking forever.  I love smoking, it’s the only thing that helps me relax.”  Is that series of beliefs useful to help him quit smoking?  Hell, no!  Those beliefs hold the smoking habit in place.

What if we could change how he’s thinking?  How about a set of beliefs like:  “I’m in control of what I do.  I can change habits at any time.  Smoking is a useless behavior, and I’m done with it.  I can do this.  I even feel more relaxed without cigarettes.  I deserve to be healthy.”

If he has those new beliefs in place, guess what?  It’s so much easier to quit smoking. They facilitate change.  They’re useful beliefs.

With Designer Beliefs ®, we do just that.  Remove less than useful beliefs, and install new ones.  It’s an open-eyed collaborative affair, built on principles of NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming.

This trademarked service is unique to Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  It’s something I’ve developed over the years, working one on one with people.  Our sister service, Designer Feelings ® asks the question:  “How would you rather feel?”  And we create a state of mind and body that leads to success, any success.  With Designer Beliefs ®, we ask:  “What beliefs would be useful and lead to your success?”  And, again, we create them in you.

If you’re ready for REAL life change, and want it quick, come experience Designer Feelings ® and Designer Beliefs ®.  If you want to pussyfoot around change and talk about it rather than DO change, go somewhere else.  Like to a talk therapy, or a counselor.   We’re very different.  Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP is all about success. Yours.

Come learn more anytime.  We do offer a free in office consultation.

Seattle Client Success: Hypnosis Ends Performance Anxiety

Mindworks Hypnosis for Performance Anxiety

She’s making beautiful music, after Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Here’s another success story!  I love working with musicians, artists, and creative people of all kinds.  Recently, a Seattle professional musician became my client.  She came to me suffering with PERFORMANCE ANXIETY around her music–something she’d been fighting for years!  She had fear manifestations such as shaking hands, impaired breathing, racing heart, and a profound nervousness about “being judged” and a belief called “I’m not good enough.”

Since we’ve inserted confidence and calm in place of her fear, the truth is now revealed: she’s actually a fabulous musician and performer.  She’s better than good enough.

Here’s her report to me after Neuro-Linguistic Programming -NLP and hypnotherapy:

“Hi Connie, I am doing good… It’s nice I don’t get shaky hands anymore in performances since we met.  I’m in a much better place mentally to grow as a performer now!” — “Anonymous,” musician, Seattle, WA.

That’s right!  She’s somebody in the public eye, and she wants to keep our work to herself, hence “anonymous.”  And yet she’s allowing me to share her success.  I actually also got an email from a friend of hers remarking on the amazing changes SHE noticed.

“My friend saw you recently for performing anxiety. You should have heard her perform yesterday. . . . . BEAUTIFUL!! She says she feels completely different.”

If you get those performance jitters, whether it’s exams in school, or public speaking, or musical performance, sports performance, or anything, know this:  it can be different for you very quickly.  When you have the right tools, change is easy.  Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy is “the right stuff.”

Call me anytime to learn more. for more info and my contact information.  My hypnotherapy office is in Bellevue, WA.

All the Best,

Goodbye, Cigarettes. We’re Not Friends Anymore.

Stop Smoking with Seattle's Best Hypnotherapists - Mindworks Hypnosis.

Seattle client crushed the smoking habit!

Another happy, successful client joins the ranks of “nonsmoker.” He smoked for 40 years, and quit in one Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy™ session with me.

He sent a follow up report, which he is allowing me to share:

“Hi Connie, Hey, first of all, let me say Thank You! Haven’t had a cigarette since our session on 8/26 at 12:30pm PDT. So, that’s a record for me. What’s it been now… 6 weeks! After ~40 years of smoking, that’s the longest abstinence to date. So far so good. Thanks again.” – Wishes-to-Remain-Anonymous, Seattle, WA.

Get happy and successful with NLP and hypnosis!Yay!  More success.  The world needs to know that skilled hypnosis kicks smoking’s butt.  If you’ve tried other things, and those “didn’t work,” try something new.  Something that does work.  NLP is “hypnosis on steroids.”  Skilled NLP is “magic” according to a recent client of mine.  It might seem like magic, but really it’s just the power of understanding how the mind works and how to make rapid changes as useful and as desired.  When you think differently, you do differently.  Change really IS that easy.

Quitting smoking is just the tip of the iceberg of possibility with hypnosis.  Michael and I have a saying at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP:  “If it involves the mind, hypnosis helps improve performance.”  From weight management to sports performance, to removing fears and phobias, to physical changes such as accelerated healing, to ending “addictions” of all varieties, hypnosis is the real deal.  Find a practitioner of these arts who is the real deal as well.

All the Best,
