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.

(Freshly Minted) Hypnotists Speak! Testimonials for the School Side of What We Do

Albert Einstein hypnotistHi, Hypnosis Friends!

Find Your Power — And She Did

Find your power, with hypnosis.

Find Your Power

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Coincidences!  Here’s a very interesting story, which I file under “musings.”

We just conducted a 4-day hypnotist training program through the school side of our work, and the students did very well.  Michael and I were watching the final “exams” where the “hypnotist” students conduct a session with  “client” students.

We only award certificates  through our career school if a student has fully mastered the skill set.  They have to demonstrate the ability to hypnotize quickly and easily, effective use of hypnotic language patterns for creative off-the-cuff direct suggestions, and also incorporate an indirect storytelling example in hypnosis to help a client make a transformation from A to B.

This student chose a symbolic hero’s journey for her client.  In trance, the person goes on a journey to a significant, special place.  In this place,  they find something useful and necessary for solving their problem, making the change, answering the question, etc.  That something is a symbol created by the hypnotized person’s mind.  (The premise of this work is that a person knows how to make the changes they desire, they just need the unconscious push to do it.  This work “stimulates” the unconscious mind to create change.)

In the exercise we watched, the girl found her symbol.  (A person can speak in trance, and this is a very unique interactive process, the hero’s journey.)  She found a rock.  A black rock.   A smooth black rock.  What does the rock mean?  Power. .. And so on with the exercise.

Watching this, I got goosebumps.  You see, I have that exact rock.  A black smooth rock which means power.  I bought it in a gift shop in Scottsdale, Arizona last year.   It’s a “spirit stone.”  It’s etched with a symbol of the sun, which represents “power and enlightenment.”

Our hypnotist student did amazingly well, helping her client to achieve fitness goals.  When the client student came out of trance, I handed her the power stone.  I told her  “look what came back with you through time and space.”  I gave her the rock to keep.   The coincidence was just too strong and amazing for me.  I had to give it to her, even though I want my power, too.

So, today, on ebay.  I found the exact spirit stone and I bought another.  Yay.  Because I won’t be going to Scottsdale anytime soon, and I didn’t know where else to find it.  Google to the rescue!

Everyone can find their power.  Real power within themselves.  To take control of life and make choices that lead to success and joy.  Hypnosis is an amazing tool to help.

All the Best,
Connie

Hypnosis is an experience I believe everyone in the universe should enjoy as a means to goal achievement.  Not only do I teach hypnosis and use it in my business Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP, I use it myself.  And do you know what, it works!

People who have heard about hypnosis think it’s limited in it’s uses.  FALSE.  It can help achieve the proper mindset and body cooperation for any goal.  Here’s a personal example:

I had oral surgery yesterday.  It was supposedly “a big deal,” with pain killers prescribed and a million rules and do’s and don’t do’s for “post op.”  I used self hypnosis for accelerated, perfect healing, and do you know what?  Today I feel fine.  It took one ibuprofen after the surgery, that’s it.  No pain.  No swelling.  The surgeon was recommending sedation medication for the surgery itself (and told me that was typical for his patients).  I said, no thank you.  And I didn’t need it.  I used self hypnosis to remain calm, and relaxed throughout.

Our minds are more powerful than we use.  If you’re ready to learn more about hypnosis and experience that state for yourself, then my event next week is for you.  It’s moocho inexpensive.  You can sign up through Bellevue College at the link above.   Hope to see you there!

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.”

Stay tuned for more webinar excerpts, as well as future webinar and live training opportunities. The next offering of the school side of what we do: July 9-12, 2015. Four day hands-on, live hypnotherapy training. Details are here: http://www.seattlenlptraining.com

These are all one-day “taster” seminars offered through the private career school side of my work: http://seattlenlptraining.com/day-seminars/.  In the workshops we explain, demo and the students play with NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (the Art & Science of Excellence).

Michael and I are also offering one seminar on Self Hypnosis, which has caught my attention and prompted me to post.  Every time I teach self hypnosis at Bellevue College, someone asks me:  “Well, how is self hypnosis different from meditation?”  I’ve thought of a great answer:  hypnosis takes it to the next level, with an added oomph for success. Hypnosis is “meditation on steroids.”  And you can quote me!  🙂

Meditation IS a kind of hypnosis, where the goal seems to be to achieve the state of quiet mind and roll around in it–hoping some good things spontaneously generate.  And they probably will!  What’s different about self hypnosis?  Hypnotherapy and self hypnosis use this state of mind targeted for strategic change:  GOALS. With self hypnosis, you’re telling your mind to DO something, to create a specific outcome for your life, whether it be healthier habits or a new body shape, or accelerated healing, or becoming multi-lingual quickly, etc. etc. etc.  Here the etcs are endless.

Yay, for the brain, and it’s very agreeable nature!

At Bellevue College I teach a snippet of this material, as the time allows there.  NOW, Michael and I are teaching this together through our own school, Mindworks NLP, and are offering it to you in an expanded format.  An all day event.  It’s slated for June 20th.  More info is here:  http://seattlenlptraining.com/day-seminars/

Hypnosis is one of my great loves.  I have another:  NLP.  Here’re the other courses we’re offering next month:

Power of Mind Workshops

NLP for Personal Development: June 6, 2015
Rapport & Relating, NLP for Dating: June 13, 2015

Bellevue College Continuing Education Says Thank You for Hypnosis!

Hi, Guys!

I got something very nice in the mail yesterday.  A certificate of appreciation from Bellevue College for my “teaching and community engagement” for my hypnosis courses and hypnosis work.  🙂  VERY nice.  I’ve framed it and it will go up on the “I love me” wall at my office with the other trainings, certifications, diplomas, and awards I have received.

Bellevue College says "thank you" for hypnosis courses.

Bellevue College says "thank you" for hypnosis courses.

This certificate was sent to me in conjunction with Governor Gregoire’s newly proclaimed Part-time Faculty Appreciation Day for the State of Washington.  Yay!  It’s nice to be appreciated.

My next go-round at Bellevue College starts next month.  I’m offering two courses this quarter, one on Healthy Hypnosis, Let Go of Weight in March, and A Chance To Trance:  Discover Hypnosis for Goal Achievement in February.

It’s fun to share what I love.

Warm Regards,
Connie

Hot offer from Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP: A Self Hypnosis for Life Success Seminar

Here’s an announcement and an invitation to an exciting event this Saturday, Sept 29th. Michael and I are presenting a full day’s hypnotic adventure-an EXPERIENTIAL adventure. A self-hypnosis seminar aptly entitled “Self Hypnosis for Life Success.” It’s hands on. Body on. Mind on.

You can learn more here:  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com/Power-of-Mind-Hypnosis-and-NLP-Seminars.html

Our “early bird” special price ends midnight tomorrow. 9/25/12. Sign up now and get this training for $49. Thereafter, it’s $97.

It’s all about hypnosis – the truth, not the myths.

It’s all about hypnosis, experiencing it, and learning more: how the mind works, the mind-body connection, about the language of influence and how to talk effectively to your unconscious mind (and get it to do things you want for yourself), well-formed goals, how to hypnotize yourself on an ongoing basis, a full process for putting it all together for successful life changes!

Whatever your goal(s), weight loss, or motivation, or habit changes, or enhanced learning and creativity, the uses are as limitless as your own mind. Clients come into my office and pay a lot more to learn what I’m offering here for this incredibly low investment. Why? I want the world to know about hypnosis as a force for good and as a tool for self change. I know it! I live it! It’s powerful. It’s natural. It’s the best thing since sliced bread! It predates sliced bread.

It’s changed my life in so many ways: weight loss and more. I’ve used these tools to empower myself with confidence and motivation and enhanced learning to the point of becoming an entrepreneur and starting my own business. I’m creating success. Now. You can, too.

Amaze yourself, you are capable of so much more.

Here’s a door for you to open. And once you do, life will become so much more.

http://www.seattlenlptraining.com/Power-of-Mind-Hypnosis-and-NLP-Seminars.html

Here’s why you want to experience this magic live! Imagine describing the taste of chocolate to someone who has never tasted it. Imagine describing making love to someone who has never experienced it. You can read and learn ABOUT bike-riding, but what’s missing is that physical and emotional experience, the surge of exhilaration, the wind in your hair, the motion of moving through space, the balance. You need to experience certain things to really UNDERSTAND them. Hypnosis is like that! Come and experience it this Saturday!

This state of mind is a power, a force for positive change. You’ll walk out of the seminar room on Saturday evening with tools for success. Tool which you can use NOW. Immediately. To feel and be a different person, in ways you choose to become different. A self-enhanced person. You are in control.

It’s a spa for your mind!

Who wants stress release? If for no other reason, come and experience hypnosis for that like-no-other feeling of mental and physical relaxation. When my clients and students emerge from trance, they are “blissed out.” They’re looking at me like “I had no idea. Thank you! Thank you!” Here are some actual client comments about the experience of hypnosis: Gene from Mercer Island: “That was delightful.” Andy from Seattle: “Better than sex!” Jacqueline from Redmond: “I’ve never been that relaxed before in my entire life!”

Hypnosis is good stuff! You can get in on this opportunity to learn more now and attend our event at

http://www.seattlenlptraining.com/Power-of-Mind-Hypnosis-and-NLP-Seminars.html

You can sign up online or call us at (425) 564-8608 to get registered with the investment of just $49 if you act fast! Seats are limited, so act now if you want in!

Hope to see you this Saturday!

3/14/12 & 5/9/12 : Two Chances to Trance for Goal Manifestation

Hypnosis is fun, Seattle! Hypnosis for goal manifestation!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I’ve offered this before, but more of a good thing is not enough.  I’m presenting two separate one-evening events at Bellevue College for those who’d like to make something happen in their lives.  A goal happen, in particular.  We can do that!  🙂

These are entertaining and experiential events for those who want to achieve something. That means you. That means all of us. Who doesn’t have goals? I don’t know any human tumbleweeds, people I meet want things and to accomplish things and achieve things. Here is a something SO COOL that works. Remember that old commercial, try it, you’ll like it. Try hypnosis. You’ll LOVE it.

Seats are still available for these one evening events at Bellevue College North! I offered this class before, and it was wonderful. Absolutely worth repeating from my vantage point, and worth experiencing from yours!!  It happens next month, March 14th. That’s a Wednesday. I hope to see you there!

You never stop learning! Not ever. That’s one of my core beliefs, and as such it leads to the possibility of creating continuously a life more in alignment with pleasure, joy, success, power, and so on. Learning gives you the ability to rudder your own ship. Learning is power. Learning is magic. Learning keeps your mind sharp and young.

Who wants an easy and FUN one-evening learning experience, which just happens to be amazingly useful as well? (And inexpensive.) I’m offering something new at Bellevue College, as part of the Personal Development Continuing Education program. Info:

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=12634&pc=1066&mc=1387&sc=

A Chance to Trance: Discover Hypnosis for Goal Achievement

Everyone can be hypnotized and learn to focus their own unconscious minds in powerful ways to achieve their goals. If you’ve ever wondered what trance is like, here’s your chance to experience it. A Chance to Trance. Experience hypnosis first hand and be guided through an ingenious process of goal manifestation by Master Hypnotist & Licensed Trainer of NLP, Connie Brannan. Bring a pillow, if you like, and bring a goal for your life success!

A Chance to Trance: Discover Hypnosis for Goal Achievement
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM North Campus Sessions: 1 W Address: 14673 NE 29th Place Bellevue, WA 98007
Fee: $39.00

If you’re in the Seattle area, you’re close enough to get in on this! It’s not just information, it’s DOING. I guide the whole group into a wonderful trance and lead them through a change process of goal setting and manifestation. It’s cool. It’s ingenious. It’s something I’ve created that I use one-on-one with my clients for their life goals, and it’s POWERFUL. It works!

And, notice the amazingly low, low cost of just $39 for the evening’s trance experience. Bellevue College set that price, not me. I think what I’m offering is beyond price. Judge for yourself. Join me. The sign up link (you must sign up through Bellevue College) is here:

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=12634&pc=1066&mc=1387&sc=

Come one and come all (class size limit 20) for this unique experience. It just may change your life.

Instant Hypnosis Demo

Hi, Hypno-Friends.

In the training/teaching side of what we do, Michael and I teach other hypnotherapists how to be more successful and effective in helping.  More tools and more flexibility means more positive changes for clients.  Here is a brief clip of Michael teaching a hypnosis class, teaching one variety of what is known as “instant induction.”  It’s an arm pull technique.  Simple to master, and powerfully effective.  Instant trance!

Of course, it’s what you do with someone therapeutically AFTER trance that makes a successful clinical hypnotherapist.  We teach all that as well.  🙂  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com/

Sometimes clients seem to think “I can’t be hypnotized.”  Yes, you can.  Everyone can be–by a skilled hypnotist.

Warm Regards,
Connie

Workplace Sanity – What this article is not telling you, and you need to know.

Hi, Guys!

We do get a newspaper delivered to our home, but I don’t look at it.  Michael likes the feel of paper, the tactile experience of reading a newspaper.  I get my news on the internet.   Which seems easier to me, more immediate, and doesn’t feed the landfill.

Here’s an article I read today which I’d like to share with you.  It’s good advice.  It’s about how to stay sane in a stressful work environment.  (I’ve had plenty of those over the years, when I worked for other people before I found my life’s calling.)  Here’s the article, on yahoo:  Seven Tips to Stay Sane at Work.

In a nutshell, it’s telling you to adopt specific FEELINGS which assist you in maintaining sanity in the face of stress:  calm, humor, dissassociation (feeling separate), empathy, positivity.  Good feelings.  Wonderful ADVICE.  But HOW to DO all that?  How to create and capture states of mind/body in yourself and use them when you’re not feeling them?

That’s where hypnosis and NLP shine!   Because it’s absolutely true.  Changing how you feel changes how you think and how you experience life, how you interact with others, and what you do behaviorally.  We can all change our lives by feeling how we find it useful to feel.  That’s NLP’s bread and butter.  It’s called anchoring.  Finding the positive state in yourself, growing and expanding it, and then capturing for future use.

The article doesn’t tell you HOW to feel calm.  I can.  How to maintain calm when Joe at work is doing his best to get under your skin.  I can.  We’ll set you those stimulus responses in your body so that they flow automatically.  Where stress used to trigger negative emotions, it won’t.  This is what I do.  And I love it.

If you’ve got stress, and want to FEEL differently, like this article advises, but haven’t a clue how to DO that…let me help.  🙂  And remember, Michael and I are offering an event just for stress release on December 10th called “Banish Holiday Stress.”  You’ll learn anchoring, and more.  More info is here:

“Elation!”

Hi, Hypnosis Friends & Enthusiasts & Interested Parties!

I began my latest go-round of the self hypnosis course at Bellevue College last night.  GOOD turnout!  There were a few people who had experienced hypnosis before and a majority who had not.

It’s fun.  It’s my pleasure to introduce people to what I love.  What I appreciate.  What I know to be massive power for positive changes:  Hypnosis.

I brought the group into a nice trance and set an “anchor” for rehypnosis–that they control.  In their own time and their own space and for their own well-formed goals.  I asked the group what their first experience of hypnosis was like.

There was a young girl in my class.  Her answer:  “Elation!”  Yes, that’s precisely what hypnosis feels like.  Another girl said it feels similar to the state she goes into while praying, it feels like “prayer.”  Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like.   One girl said her body felt “heavy.”  Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like.  A man (who seemed disappointed–who doesn’t YET understand the power of the state) said it simply feels like “Relaxing.”  Yes, that’s what hypnosis feels like.  My personal sense of hypnosis is a heightened focus accompanied with a profound sense of control and well-being.  That’s what hypnosis feels like.

It’s a very individual experience.  Bottom line:  it feels GOOD!  But more than that, it does good.  For your life.  This isn’t zen, like meditation, where attaining the state is the goal.  No.  It’s USING the state to stimulate your mind to create change that’s desired and useful.  That’s hypnotherapy.  And that’s self hypnosis as well.

The class is going well.  There’s a second evening of fun and adventure and experience and learning ahead for this group.  Makes me happy!  🙂

Warm Regards,
Connie

Drive Your Own Bus

NLP is the real deal for life change.

NLP is the real deal for life change.

Hi, Hypno-Friends, Enthusiasts, & Interested Parties!

There’s still a few seats available for Michael’s and my “Power of Mind” Workshop we’re offering.  It’s happening this Saturday, July 16.  More info:

http://mindworkshypnosis.net/hypnotizer/?p=1578

and http://www.seattlenlptraining.com

It’s a driving school.  Not about motor vehicles.  It’s about LIVES.  Your life! About running your life the way you want.  Taking control.  The King of NLP, and my teacher, Dr. Richard Bandler, calls learning and using NLP “Driving your own bus.”  Yes, I do.  Perhaps, you want to, too! 🙂

This powerful seminar/workshop focuses on using NLP for self development and life success.  NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) can be described as an amalgam of linguistics and hypnosis, and is based on the study of human excellence.  If it weren’t already taken, the slogan for NLP could be:  “Be all that you can be.”  Yes, you can.  We’ll help you, as you learn and experience powerful subconscious communication tools and techniques you can use immediately to increase personal satisfaction, self confidence, influence and power.  Eliminate undesirable habits!  Program in more useful ones.  Control your emotional states and more!

It’s not fluff.  It’s not hype.  It’s REAL.  The testimonials on my website (and there are dozens upon dozens) are because I incorporate NLP into my therapy work.  In one of the video testimonials we received, a woman says:  “Everyone should be required to learn this (NLP) at an early age.  It would make the world such a better place.”  I absolutely agree.

If you want in for a one-day workshop showcasing NLP and more about hypnosis in general, too…join us!  Remember that old airline slogan, “We love to fly, and it shows.”  Well, We love NLP, and it shows.

Warm Regards,
Connie & Michael

Aha!

My mother often had moments she called “Aha!” moments–when some insight was gleaned and something suddenly made sense to her, or shifted her thinking.  She turned these moments into poetry.  She was a poet, as well as an artist!  🙂

I just had an “Aha!” moment.   My “Aha!” moments turn into stories for my hypnosis clients, and blog entries!  Here it is.

I was on Facebook, which I enjoy, when I encountered an unexpected difficulty, an undesired “shift.” I was typing away, and out of the blue my computer keyboard screwed up, and began typing symbols instead of letters. I couldn’t “undo” that weirdness, the shift functionality was ON and I couldn’t figure out how to turn it off, and couldn’t finish and “publish” my thought for Facebook. What’s going on? I wondered, what strange combination of function keys did I accidentally touch and activate??

I tried hitting several varieties of keys to undo the problem, alt/caps lock, function number keys, etc. Nothing. It kept with the goofy symbols instead of writing. Then I noticed, there was a crumb, a hardened crumb, somehow wedged in the side of the “shift” key, holding it down.

I brushed it off, and everything worked perfectly again.  Sometimes the best solutions are the easiest, straightforward, and overlooked.

That’s right!  🙂

Self Hypnosis – Another tool for life success!

Learning never stops!

Learning never stops!

Hi, Guys!

Bellevue College has a new location in North Bellevue, and I’m excited to be teaching my self hypnosis course there again.  Beginning next week!  It’s for two evenings, Monday, May 9th and Monday, May 16th.  Two evenings, twice the fun.  Twice the TRANCE-formation.  Learn something so powerful and cool.

The frame of this course is Healthy Hypnosis:  Let Go of Weight, and that’s terrific.  However, I want you to know that when you learn self hypnosis, these same tools are terrific for so much more than that tiny frame.  (Which you’ll achieve–a tiny frame–when you let go of the unwanted pounds through self hypnosis!)

In the bigger picture, here’s what it’s really about:  behavior change, feeling change, thinking changes.  Around so much, and so many different situations.  For example:  smoking cessation, sleep improvement, stress reduction, more motivation/less procrastination, better study habits, better golf, and more and more and more than that!

There’s still room available, if you’re interested.  And if you’re reading this, that means you are interested in hypnosis.  Here is a terrific and inexpensive way to get started with hypnosis.  Why not use ALL of your brain for a change?

Here are the class details and signup form (through Bellevue College’s Continuing Education program):

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=11559&pc=1066&mc=1387&sc=

Healthy Hypnosis: Let Go of Weight  

Imagine yourself in your “skinny jeans.” Hear the compliments of your family and friends. Like what you see when you look in the mirror! Feel the energy! The hypnosis skills taught in this workshop can help you unleash the infinite power within you to achieve all this! You’ll learn to reprogram your own mind to act in ways you desire: healthy choices, healthy eating, motivation to exercise. It won’t be a struggle, and it’s not a “diet,” it’s simply doing what you want to do. Your mind and your body will be working together–for your health!!

If you’d like to join me, please sign up!  You’ll be in for an enriching and exremely fun experience.  Hands on hypnosis.

An NLP “Anchor” In Action!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

This is a VERY cute video.  It’s not just an adorable baby laughing as Dad tears up his job rejection letter…it’s more than that.  It’s an accurate and amazing illustration of ANCHORING.

I talk about anchors, and I use anchors all the time in my work.  It’s an NLP term.  (Neuro-Linguistic Programming, a high tech hypnosis.)  In this video, every time the baby hears/sees the paper rip, he immediately laughs uproariously.  EVERY TIME.  Stimulus, response.  Stimulus, response.  Same stimulus, same response.  Over and over and over again.    Simply explained, an anchor is an unconscious association that’s been created, a link-up in the brain.  This means that, this leads to that.  When it rains, I feel sad.  When I see a spider, I recoil in fear.  When I see a stop sign, my foot moves off the gas pedal.  When I smell chocolate brownies, I remember my mother.  Anchors!

Now, laughter is a wonderful thing to anchor.  Keep it!  When a response is less than desired, however, that’s where NLP comes in.  We can change our anchors.  Absolutely easily!  I worked with a gentleman with a debilitating fear of heights this past week.   That fear response, it was simply a learned response, an anchor.  I’m in a high place, and that means PANIC!  (Not anymore, after working with me!  Now it means calm, comfortable, confident, and clear-minded.)  What we do in NLP work, we help people break out of these unconscious patterns and install new anchors, for better and more resourceful responses.

People think they’re stuck.  They’re trapped.  They’re not.  NLP creates anchors, good ones, and replaces the non-useful ones.  I’d be happy to show you how.  As a client:  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net or as a student:  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com.

Warm Regards,
Connie

The best time of your life is now.

The best time of your life is now.

We all have “plans.”  Plans for the future.  Grand schemes.  And that’s terrific.  We all have a past.  Yesterday, last week, last year.  Five years old.  And that’s terrific, too.  People think about those things, sometimes too much.  To the neglect of today.  Right now.

What are you doing right now?  Besides reading my blog…  What is the state of your mind and body?   Is there joy, is there fun, is there passion?  Is there motivation?  Is there happy?  Are you smelling the spring roses?   Are you LIVING, or are you waiting?  Are you living, or are you remembering?

Don’t wait to remember that right now is an important time of your life, too.  Right now, this instant.  If you’re not enjoying fully the state of your mind and body and experience of life at this moment, know this:  you can change it.  Easier and quicker than you think.

And, as I explain to every client who enters my office door, when you change how you feel, you change how you think, and you change what you DO.   It’s seamless.   If you want to feel something different, right now, not ten years down the road, if you want to see life differently, if you’re ready to hear new  and improved thoughts in your own head, and DO life differently in a way that makes more good feelings flow, hypnosis and NLP is a tool for you.  Experience it.  The best time of your life is right now.

I know that’s true.  Do you?

Warm Regards,
Connie

It’s Self-Reinforcing

There are a lot of myths and misunderstandings about hypnosis out there, there being the minds of people.  It’s my job as a professional to set straight what I can.  The truth about hypnosis.  Yesterday I realized a new originating source of those misunderstandings – another local hypnosis provider.  They’re giving out misinformation to their clients.

They’re selling the idea that hypnosis is WORK, something the client has to do involving their thinking/conscious mind.  And do again, and do again.  They’re telling them they have to consciously remember, and plan and make time to DO something on a continuing basis for the hypnosis to be effective.  No!  Absolutely no.  A good hypnotist makes the change-work self-reinforcing.  I sure do.

I had a spider phobia for 30 years.  A phobia IS a type of hypnosis.  In a single experience, I hypnotized myself into believing that that tiny little insect was immediately life-threatening.  And my body would react.  I didn’t have to DO anything to keep that pattern running inside me for 30 years.  I didn’t have to remember to listen to a recorded tape every evening reminding me to remember to be afraid.   How unnecessary would that be?  VERY.

Patterns run in us until they are replaced by a new pattern.  Hypnosis/NLP installs a new pattern.  The new pattern runs.  And runs.  And runs.

Hypnosis changes the way you ARE in the world.  The way you live and breathe.  These changes are positive, healthy, and seamless.  They are inside of a person.  When done well, the change work feels natural and it fits with a person’s entire life.  The less your conscious, thinking mind gets involved in this process, the better.  You just find yourself thinking differently, feeling different, and doing different behaviors–all these congruent with your goals.

I’m not going to give you conscious-mind busy work to do and pretend that that makes the hypnosis “stick” better.  That idea does hypnosis a terrible disservice.

Warm Regards,
Connie

Before and after hypnosis works for weight loss.The proof is in the pudding, and your body and mind and LIFE and energy are the pudding.  Who wants to get cookin’ on this with me?  These tools work.

Here’s to a happy and healthy new you, beginning now.  (Or, Monday!)

More Truth About Hypnosis – Is it Sleep?

Hi, Guys!  Here is more truth about hypnosis. It’s NOT sleep. You may snore in hypnosis, you may drool, your body may be massively relaxed, but it’s not sleep. It’s a different state of mind/body, with different brainwave patterns. You go into hypnosis every day of your life, including on your way into and out of sleep. Learn more here: http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/faq.html

Here’s me, talking about this!

Here’s more about the brainwave patterns themselves:

Stay tuned!  I’m editing several more educational (More Truth About Hypnosis) short videos.  They’ll also be available on youtube.  Here is my page there:

Feel Good Spin

Here is another video demonstrating the transformational power of hypnosis.

My mom was an artist.  Water color, oils, mixed media… realistic work, abstracts, she was massively creative.   She created many series of her artwork, including one I particularly love.  She called it:  “Loving the Spin I’m In.”  I have several pieces from that series on the walls in my office.

Mom art SpinShe was right.  It’s all a spin of our own creation.  She chose one that she loved.  Me, too.

If you’re sick of the negative spin of your thinking and feeling, choose something different.  Now.  It’s so easy…with the tool of hypnosis.

Connie

Expand the Boundaries of Your Thinking.

Michael and I made a couple new videos tonight.  Here’s one.  I call this a “magic moment.”  It illustrates hypnosis without being about hypnosis.  🙂  Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to think outside the box.  Hypnosis allow you the ability to do just that, and create workable solutions to life’s challenges and dilemmas.

Happy Valentine’s to My Hypno Friends!

This is one of my favorite holidays…and really, what’s not to like?  It’s about LOVE.  Connection.  Hearts.  Chocolate (though I eat less of that nowadays).  Happy Valentine’s Day to my hypnosis friends.

I went to see Smokey Robinson perform live last night.  The man is ALL about love.  What a hypnotist.  🙂  I love Smokey Robinson.  If you want a taste of Smokey, there’s about 5000 performance videos of him on youtube.com.

If you want a taste of self-love, here’s something else for you to experience.  Self hypnosis.  Michael and I are offering an intensive, one-day self hypnosis workshop this Saturday, February 19th here in Bellevue, “Discover the Power of Hypnosis to Improve Your Life.”  If you’d like to read more about it, you can check out the details here:

http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net/whatsnew2.html

We’ve got a small group, which means “more hypnosis for you!”  We’d love it if you’d come and discover hypnosis for life success.  It really is truly amazing and powerful, and I run out of superlatives when I talk about it.  If hypnosis were a page on Facebook (it probably is), I’d click LIKE!!  More than like.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE.  Which is why this day of love is a good time to talk about it.  If you love yourself enough to want more joy and success in your life, or would like to love yourself enough to want more joy and success in your life, here’s a tool for you.

In our workshop, you get to experience hypnosis, and we install an “instant trigger for trance” for you to return to that state when and where you want.  And that state is magic, where miracles happen, where you focus your mind on what you want and that part of your mind figures out how to get it!  We talk about goal formation, the language of unconscious influence, how to self-hypnotize, how to do a self-hypnosis session, and there will be hypnotic interludes aplenty.  FUN!!  LIVE.  HYPNOSIS!

Pre-registration is necessito, because space for this workshop is limited.  If you want in (the best Valentine’s gift you could ever give to anyone or yourself), call me right now, 425-564-8608.  Or you can sign up online with our handy dandy paypal button:

http://www.seattlenlptraining.com.

Hey, it’s Valentine’s and if you are still stumped for the unique and loving gift for your significant other, well, this is something different, isn’t it??  🙂  AND something cool.  It’s an experience you can share together.

Much love to you all on Valentine’s and every day,
Connie

What You Didn’t Know About Stage Hypnosis

Michael Brannan, Master Hypnotist & Licensed Trainer of NLP (tm)

Michael Brannan, Master Hypnotist & Licensed Trainer of NLP (tm)

by Guest Blogger, C. Michael Brannan, Master Hypnotist & Licensed Trainer of Neuro-Linguistic Programming ™.

Stage hypnosis shows have always been an important way to introduce hypnosis to the general public. Many hypnotherapists, if not most, received their first introduction to hypnosis through a stage hypnosis show. Connie herself was first introduced to hypnosis through a stage hypnosis show.

Connie’s initial reaction, like that of many, was “this can’t be real,” and “they’re all plants.”  That reaction is common because most of us are truly unaware of the power and role our unconscious minds play in each and every thing we do. In some cases, stage hypnotism evokes fear!

What’s really going on in a stage hypnosis show? How does what we see in a show relate to hypnotherapy? How does it relate to what we experience in ordinary life? Most people, including most hypnotherapists, haven’t realized yet that every phenomena experienced in hypnosis is experienced by everyone in their ordinary “waking” state!

I went to a hypnosis show yesterday presented as part of World Hypnotism Day (an event sponsored by the National Guild of Hypnotists, Washington State chapter). The response of most of the audience who were not hypnotherapists was one of fascination and interest. And the hypnotic phenomena are truly that.

The hypnotist performed a lot of skits, all displaying the power of the unconscious mind to control our bodies, to enter imaginative realms of fantasy and to access our minds in ways we perhaps didn’t know we could. Stage hypnosis shows are a powerful presentation of the power of the unconscious mind!

In one skit, the hypnotist created amnesia for the number 7, and had the participant then count the number of his fingers. The participant counted..1,2,3,4,5,6,8,9,10,11….have you always had 11 fingers? No, I only have 10 fingers. Anmesia can often be important. What if each time you wanted a cigarette, you simply forgot that you wanted one and continued with whatever you were doing? What if you simply forgot to eat all those unhealthy things that are keeping on those unwanted pounds?

And this experience is something we have in our ordinary life. You know that “tip of the tongue” phenomena? We know something, we know it perfectly, but just can’t get access to it at the moment. Students who study for tests and then “forget” what they learn during the test is common. They haven’t “forgotten” at all; they are just too nervous, anxious or something else to get access to the information. It’s easy to deal with: just give yourself a suggestion to remember, relax, and let your unconscious mind do its work.

xrayglassessmallThe unconscious mind is extraordinarily powerful. It can give or withhold conscious access to information at a mere suggestion. Suggest the number 7 is gone, and, boom, it’s gone. Suggest it’s back, and, boom, it’s back.

The flip side is that the unconscious mind can give access to much more information as well. Suggest to yourself that you will remember more, remember more clearly and you will.  In trance, people can recall vivid details and details thought long forgotten. With hypnosis, you can create states where that vivid recollection comes more quickly and more easily than you ever thought possible. And that can carry into your everyday life, allowing you to learn more, learn faster and remember what you’ve learned here. 

When we say to ourselves things like “I can’t learn,” “I can’t remember” we are sabotaging ourselves. We are giving ourselves a suggestion, we are telling our unconscious minds to fail at learning, and to “forget.” And those suggestions can be just as effective as the hypnostist’s suggestion to “forget” the number 7. The unconscious is a humble servant–it will do what it is asked to do, so ask it to do things you want it to do.

Hi, guys!  Connie here.  Learn more about this fun side of hypnosis here:  http://www.onstagehypnosis.com.

As always, we’d love it if you’d sign up for our FREE e-newsletter, “The Monthly Trance.”  Form below!  It comes out (approximately) monthly, and lets you know what’s going on, hypnotically speaking.  For instance, yesterday was our free World Hypnotism Day Event in Bellevue.  The Seattle Times NW weekender publication declared it a “best bet” for the weekend, and yes, it was.  Thank you to all who came out and participated.  We’re so glad you’re getting to know hypnosis.

Warm Regards, Connie

Get Tranced!

Hi, Hypno Friends!  Michael and I are offering something very special this holiday season.  It’s a chance to trance, and de-stress!  Read on:

Are you feeling stressed?  Tense?  Overwhelmed?  Ready to scream and pound on something?  The holidays are often ridiculously hectic, stress-filled times, with numerous family demands added to the “normal” tide of work and life demands.  Are you ready to deal with extended family gatherings (and family personalities), planning, parties, gift shopping, travel, inclement weather, and more, stressing you out on top of all the busy craziness of life in general this time of year?!

Relax!  Reeeeelaaaxx!   Here’s the best holiday gift you could ever give or receive.  It’s hypnosis!  A stress-busting event.  We’re offering hypnotic techniques to banish holiday stress.  Experience a few hours of deep hypnotic relaxation on Saturday, December 4th with Master Hypnotists C. Michael Brannan and Connie Brannan.  http://www.mindworkshypnosis.com

Michael will trance you into a deep state of hypnotic relaxation and teach your unconscious mind automated processes that will make you feel better and less stressed this holiday season.  He’ll teach you conscious stress buster techniques to use and feel better anytime anywhere in the days and weeks to come.  POWERFUL  stuff.  Change your life, one relaxed, calm breath at a time.  Ahhhhhhh!

In our 3 hour seminar, Michael will guide you into hypnosis (where stress does not exist) and craft and weave happy and calming anti-stress suggestions into the deepest recesses of your mind.  Your mind will lap it up like a kid with an ice cream cone.  He’ll teach you “The Circle of Relaxation” technique to take home as well.  Also, once you’ve experienced trance, you’ll want more.  We’re happy to oblige!   Connie is offering a FREE BONUS Hypnosis Session at the end of the seminar, on healthy eating during the holidays.  (Connie knows all about healthy eating, she’s lost 80+ pounds with hypnosis.)

Join us for this exciting event and have yourself a merry little stress-free holiday with hypnosis!  Space is limited, so sign up now.  Feel free to tell your friends or family.  De-Stress together!
