What kind of successes can you expect from our certification training? Here’s the scoop from a couple former students of “Discover the Magic of Hypnosis”:

“Connie and Michael are the best!! They really teach all the important things about hypnosis in a concise and positive way, and give you the tools you need to succeed. They are a pleasure to learn from, and I feel very confident to start my own practice. I can’t thank them enough! Highly recommended!!” – Dawn F., Seattle, WA

“What a grand journey. A mere 4 days, and how very far I have traveled! Studying with Connie and Michael was such a pleasure. Both are fabulous instructors, making learning fun and exciting. And I became a hypnotist! Wow!

Initially just the concept of learning trance induction was overwhelming but, with their combined years of experience and knowledge, technique and practical tips, the Brannans guided me through it all, filling me with confidence along the way. In fact, just one single technique alone made it worth the price of admission for me.

If you have any interest in learning hypnosis, trance induction and accessing the untapped resources of the human mind, Mindworks NLP is definitely the place to be. Once again, many thanks!” – Jon Komatsu, Seattle, WA

Yay, for new hypnotherapists. I say, the more the merrier, and yay for more success, joy, and helping in the world. You might notice a common theme in the comments: confidence. We use hypnosis to teach hypnosis, and installing confidence in our students is always on our agenda. Obviously, we were successful.

Now is the time for hypnosis.

Michael and I are teaching our 4 day live hypnosis training event again, July 7 – 10, 2016, through the school side of our work, Mindworks NLP. It’s always a fabulous experience, with lots of fresh minds opening up to the power of words, unconscious creativity and problem-solving ability. We love to unleash newly minted “Certified Hypnotists” for the betterment of the world, and specifically, the Seattle area.

Find your happiness with hypnosis.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Yesterday evening, Michael and I shared some thoughts and insights into how the mind works and hypnosis as a change tool.  We had a lot of fun, it was our first ever Webinar offering online.

It’s cool, and it’s easy for participants, as anyone with internet can join us from their own home or phone.  It was a great learning experience for us, as well, as to the technical necessities of this form of online sharing of info.

In the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing snippets of our presentation from last night.  Here’s one right now, where I answer the question:  “What is hypnosis good for?”  My answer:  anything that involves the mind.  Here’s the video:

Sorry for the uneven sound–we’re still learning the technical side of all this. I hope you can hear my passion and enthusiasm coming through, as well as info.  I’m including a text transcript as well:

“Hello! Connie, again! What has hypnosis been used for? Pretty much anything you can imagine. If your mind is involved, hypnosis can be useful for that. It’s been used clinically for so many different things. The big three: weight loss, quit smoking, and anxiety and stress release. Those are the mainstream kind of things that people come to a hypnotist for.

However, it’s possible to do so much more beyond that. We can stop pain. We can stop bleeding. We can help people to have comfort during oral surgery without anesthesia. Surgical procedures without anesthesia. Through the power of the mind. Accelerated healing. There’s a whole field of hypnosis called hypno-birthing. I don’t partake of that, however many people do. And that is all about preparing the person’s mind for comfortable childbirth.

There’s just so many different uses. And I can tell you a little bit more about some of the clients I’ve had in my office. Really, it’s everyday people with everyday issues.

• People that have had relationship breakups and they want to stop obsessing about their old partner.

• People that play golf. They want to be a better golfer, they just want to score better in their game. Any sport, any sport you can name, hypnosis is a way to focus the mind to access a skill set and automate it!

• Any kind of phobias or fears that are inappropriate for life can be shifted. I have seen every phobia under the sun. Fear of overripe bananas. Fear of record stores. Fear of dinosaurs. Just fear of anything you can imagine. Fear of the wind! Imagine how terrifying that would be, living here in the Pacific Northwest. You see a leaf move, and you go into a panic attack. These things are not resourceful. They’re not useful. And the mind can make those changes very easily.

• I’ve worked with artists. I’ve worked with musicians.

• Kids with test anxiety.

• I’ve helped a stroke survivor regain cognitive function.

• I’ve helped people with memory.

• If you’re into the esoteric explorations, I even did past life recall type work with people where we go backwards in time in their imagination and we replicate and recreate wisdom and learnings from prior lives. Whether you believe it’s an actual thing, a past life, or simply a symbolic representation in the mind, either way it has useful information there. So, sometimes in hypnosis, that’s where we go.

What is hypnosis good for? Really, anything and everything! I have worked with kids to senior citizens for everything. If it’s something that you want to be different in your life, hypnosis is a tool that can help you get that communication into the unconscious. Where it has power.

Because, here’s the bottom line: Your unconscious mind is really super agreeable. It will create for you the things you instruct it to do. It is so agreeable, so accommodating, and so creative in making it happen.

The problem that people run into is they think about the things they don’t want in their life. With hypnosis, we pull them out of that thinking and put them into the other side of the coin. As Albert Einstein said: “You can’t solve a problem with the same thinking that created it.” Or maintains it! What do you want? How do you want life to be different? How do you want to feel? What do you want to think? What behaviors do you want to modify? You can change anything about yourself.

This is so underutilized, hypnosis. I believe and feel that, as time goes on, hypnosis is going to gain, and gain, and gain in credibility. And appreciation. And become mainstream. There are going to be as many hypnotists and hypnosis clinics as there are pedicure and fingernail manicure shops. On every corner, practically. Or dry cleaners. Because hypnosis can help anyone do anything. That’s my belief and I’m sticking with it.” — Connie Brannan, CHt. & Licensed Trainer of NLP®

For more information as to the uses of hypnotherapeutic hypnosis, you can check out my FAQ:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/faq/.  Removing fear, weight loss, quit smoking, stress release, fingernail biting, any behavioral changes, sleep improvement, improved motivation and confidence, enhanced creativity.  And more and more and more.  You name it, hypnosis helps!

I hope you enjoy learning more about hypnosis on my blog here.  We also offer full blown live hypnosis trainings, hands on, face to face experiential courses in Bellevue.  How to hypnotize. How to craft language for maximum unconscious power and change.  Instant inductions.  Silent inductions. Spontaneous hypnosis scripts flowing from your mind and not read from a piece of paper.  We have a four day training coming up.  July 9 – 12, 2015 is our “Discover the Magic Of Hypnosis” hypnotherapy training.  If you’d like to join us, we still have a few seats available.  Info is here:  http://seattlenlptraining.com/learn-hypnosis/

Hypnosis is something wonderful.  Find out more anytime either in my clinical hypnosis practice or my Licensed career school for hypnosis and NLP.

What is Hypnosis? — Tonight’s Webinar Answer by Connie

Connie Brannan, CHt.Transcript/excerpt of Connie Brannan answering a question: “What is Hypnosis” for webinar “Discover the Magic of Hypnosis.” broadcast June 30, 2015.

“Hi, Connie again! And now we’re going to have a brief conversation about what is hypnosis. We are assuming that you are a newcomer to this beautiful, magical, creative process called hypnosis. So, we’re going to take it from square one.

What is hypnosis? We have in our minds a conscious awareness. Awake. Aware. Living our life in the world. What we think. Logic. Reason. Evaluation. Focus. This is a conscious thing, we notice what’s around us. We notice what we can notice, and guess what? It’s a tiny, tiny bit of available information. We can only notice so much.

Hypnosis is an accessing of a different kind of consciousness, a resourceful, creative consciousness! Unconsciousness, which is also called subconscious. What it is: it’s everything else beyond that conscious awareness. You might notice one thing, two things, three things, in a moment. Your unconscious is taking in billions of pieces of information.

It is handling the processes of language. Translation. Understanding sound. The ability to speak and communicate. How to move your mouth. How to form words. Understanding. You don’t have to think about that. It has become automated, unconscious.

Unconscious mind stores your life experience in memory. It’s not a conscious memory, it’s an unconscious memory. It’s total recall. Holographic life experience. The definition of hypnosis: we get the conscious mind to step aside. Get out of our way! You’ve had your shot to solve this thing, now, step aside! When the conscious mind steps aside, it opens up a doorway into this creative, unconscious mind.

Here are some of the aspects of the conscious mind vs. the unconscious mind. Your conscious mind is analytical. Logical. Sequential. One thing at a time. Very, very limited in its focus. And it directs our day to day outcomes. Whereas, the unconscious mind is creative, unlimited and expansive. It is doing so many things, multi-functioning! It handles our feelings, our imagination. Our intuition. Our creativity. Our problem-solving ability.

And in addition to that, it’s running the body. Everything to do with the body and how it functions. Breathing and blood flow! So, now, I’m sitting here and I’m breathing. I wasn’t thinking about breathing a moment ago. And yet, it’s still happening. If I want to, I can consciously adjust my breathing. This is an example. I can breathe faster. I can breathe slower. I can breathe deeper. But if I forget all about it and stop directing it, guess what? I’m still breathing.

Unconscious mind handles digestion, and breathing, and blow flow, and healing and every process inside the body. Renewal of cells. All these things. These are unconscious processes handled by this fabulous, powerful unconscious mind. Gee! What a good thing to have on our side, huh? Talking to the unconscious mind about the things we want. That’s basically hypnosis.

You know, we talk about left brain, right brain. It’s really one mind, and it has different functions. My favorite, obviously, is your creative mind, your artistic mind. Some people say: “What’s more important, creativity or knowledge?” I believe creativity! As well as imagination. Maybe those words are synonymous.

Here’s an image and you can see:

Mind Functions and Hypnosis
Thinking, reason, linear, analytic logic. Science is on that left side there. Science, medicine, therapies that think “one size fits all,” one problem one solution. That’s not the kind of thinking that we use in hypnosis. Heck, no!

What we know in hypnosis to be true is that everyone is unique. And everybody has the ability, inside their unconscious mind to create a new world. The one they want! The one that’s joy-filled, and successful, and happy, and free, and fun, and all the things people want for themselves. It’s really accessible through this part of our mind.

So, what is hypnosis? There’s lots and lots of different definitions out there. The formal analytical one is: “It’s a bypassing of your critical factor, the conscious mind.” When you bypass, you push it aside, you go around it, you get in that door, you’re talking to the unconscious. That’s unconscious communication. That’s hypnosis!

My own definition: it’s a state of accelerated learning. Because, in this place in your mind you can make changes so fast. You can have new thoughts, new intuitions, new solutions to life’s dilemmas. And it happens at such an incredibly accelerated rate of speed. Unlike other therapies that might say to a person: “It will take months and months of hard work to make a change. Change is struggle. Change is horrendously difficult.” Well, that’s not what we believe in the world of hypnosis. We believe change is easy. And once you get into this state of mind, you have that accelerated learning available to you.

“What is hypnosis?” It’s a focused attention. It’s not sleep. Here we have an interesting word: monoideism. Focusing on a single idea. That is a good definition. However, that name itself just doesn’t sound sexy or anything. It never caught on.

We use the word “hypnosis,” Greek for “sleep.” That’s a huge myth, hypnosis is not sleep. Not in any way, shape, or form. It is a creative mind space.”
