Hypnosis is Meditation on Steroids

Hypnosis unlocks your power of mind!Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Michael and I are offering 4 Power of Mind Workshops next month in the Seattle area, Bellevue, WA to be specific. It’s a great way for people to learn amazing empowerment techniques and ideas at an affordable cost in a tiny chunk of time. One Day!

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:

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

A New Course at Bellevue College – NLP for Dating and Relating

NLP for Dating and Relating

NLP for Dating and Relating

Hi, Hypnosis Friends & Enthusiasts!

The work I do and teach in the Seattle area is hypnosis and NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming — amazing methodologies for personal development and goal getting, goal achievement. Hypnosis and NLP are applicable and wonderful for so many varieties of change — from weight management to phobia fixes, to behavioral changes such as quit smoking and stop fingernail biting, to sports enhancement to improving relationships and communications, and pretty much any activity where your brain is involved.  (ALL!)

In the realm of that last category, relationships and communications, I am offering a new course at Bellevue College this winter quarter.  It’s called:  NLP for Dating and Relating. NLP has been called “hypnosis on steroids.”

http://www.campusce.net/BC/course/course.aspx?C=13808&pc=1817&mc=1893&sc=

Here’s the course description for NLP for Dating and Relating:

Are you interested in dating or improving relationships with those around you? Effective communication can improve any relationship! You will learn how to build rapport and connect with people in the best way possible, both socially and in business contexts. Create states of mind and body in yourself (such as confidence and joy) that lead to effective communications. NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) is a methodology of effective communications, both on the conscious and unconscious level. Connie Brannan is a Licensed Trainer of NLP ®.

NLP for Dating and Relating
Item: W9509 Connie Brannan
7:00 PM – 9:00 PM North Campus Room: V1021
Sessions: 1 W Address: 14673 NE 29th Place Bellevue, WA 98007
3/18/2015 – 3/18/2015 Fee: $49.00

What is NLP?  I talk about that here:

The course, a one night, 2-hour adventure, is all about building new states in ourselves that enhance communications, confidence, ease, flow of words, sharp-minded, humor, and so on.  It’s also about understanding rapport (positive connections between people) and how to facilitate rapport.–PHYSICALLY.  And verbally.  It’s fun, cool, stuff. And super powerful.

My goal for the course is that people should walk out the door after the class feeling more empowered and positive, with tools to use for improved communications.  I’d love for you to join me!

What is NLP? It’s “Hypnosis on Steroids!”

Neuro Linguistic Programming

Neuro Linguistic Programming

Hi, Hypnosis Friends & Enthusiasts!

People come to my Bellevue hypnosis office because they want something different.  Something different to do, or something different NOT to do.  To get over negative emotions, to create a desired outcome, success, of all varieties.   NLP, Neuro Linguistic Programming, is my number one go-to tool to help.

After I explain hypnosis and hypnotherapy, I’m often asked:  “What IS NLP?”  Here’s a video where I explain:

As I say in the description of this video on my Youtube channel: “This methodology and mindset helps us take control of our experience of life! How we feel, how we think, what we DO…it’s all movable furniture and we, each of us, is the movin’ man! We can get the life we want.”

A hypnotherapy session in my office is really two sessions in one, in that it also includes a full NLP session as well as traditional hypnosis.  I call what I do “Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy™.”  What I do is very different from other therapies and even from other hypnotherapists.  🙂  The approach is different from other therapies in that it is one of empowerment.  NLP is my favorite thing, as well as my expertise. It’s the difference which makes the difference.

What is NLP?  Another tool for unconscious communication.  It’s been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  That’s because it works so amazingly well and fast when the practitioner is skilled and creative.  I am a Licensed Trainer of NLP ® through the Society of NLP ™ which is a source of great pride for me.  There are only a few dozen such trainers in the entirety of the US, licensed through Dr. Richard Bandler, the co-originator of NLP.  My husband, Michael,  (also one of those Licensed Trainers of NLP ® ) and I operate a Licensed Private Career School here in Washington State, Mindworks NLP, and we teach and offer NLP certifications.  NLP is cool.  NLP is fun.  NLP is amazing.  My students get so excited by it that they have been known to start chanting in class:  “NLP!  NLP!  NLP!”

It’s actually pretty rare that a Licensed Trainer ® is also doing one on one client work as well as teaching groups.  I see private clients because this is my passion and my fun.  You can learn more here, anytime, at my client website, and here, my school website. I do hope you will discover the power of NLP at some point in your life. It’s worth knowing.

All the Best,
Connie

Does Your Hand Deserve Your Thumb?

Time to bloom.

I’m working with a girl right now whose father told her at a ripe impressionable age:  “you don’t deserve anything.”  One of the things her mind decided she didn’t deserve was health.  In her adult mind, she knows what her father MEANT for her to learn by that statement:  “you won’t be offered things on a silver platter, you have to work hard to achieve success.” BUT…what he said and what she heard, literally was:  YOU DON’T DESERVE ANYTHING.

Wow!  Her unconscious mind took that on board.  Absolutely literally.  What a terrible and damaging message–coming from someone who should be loving and nurturing.  I asked her yesterday if she deserved to breathe the air in the room, and I could see her internal struggle because she knew it should logically be “yes” yet she felt and believed it was “no.”  This blog entry is called:  “Does your hand deserve your thumb?”

I posed that question to my client yesterday, in trance.  “Does your hand deserve your thumb?”  We let her powerful unconscious mind percolate on what is natural, what is a part of us, and what is “deserved.”  I also asked her if a flower deserves sunshine, and to be nourished by rain and the nutrients in soil?  Does a flower deserve to bloom?  I sure think so!!  This lady is a flower who thinks she has no right to bloom.  I’m helping her to change her thinking–and her health!

Language is so much more powerful than people know.  One of the tragedies (and so unnecessary) of human life seems to be this parental business of installing negative and limiting and damaging beliefs in children.  The young mind has no conscious filter to block damaging ideas, like adults have.

A huge piece of my NLP and hypnotherapy work involves un-installing negative beliefs and re-installing power and possibility into lives.  I’m so happy this technology exists which creates healthy change so quickly and seamlessly.  I’m also so happy that I’ve been privileged to learn it, really learn it from the source of NLP himself, Dr. Richard Bandler, the best of the best of the best.

Unfortunately, I’m continually finding that other Seattle area hypnotists don’t have the skill set or the mind set for this work–and clients who have escaped their ineptitude come to me and tell me horror stories of non-helping and “hypnotists” even installing more limitations in them.  These unskilled ones are playing at being hypnotists, as a part time “I know enough to get by” kind of gig.  Luckily, they won’t be around for long, because they can’t deliver the results.

Go for quality.  Someone well trained and imaginative enough to understand the power of words to help and heal.

Tell Your Brain: “It’s Over!”

Have you ever stewed over a problem situation, looping negative thoughts again and again in your mind? Maybe it was about family, maybe about work, maybe it was health related. I know we all have those “stew times!!” Some call it worry, or obsessing. I call it unnecessary.

What if a problem that has been looming large in  your mind could be minimized to the point of trivial? What if this problem / situation / icky-ness was absolutely OVER as far as you’re concerned and  didn’t affect you negatively anymore? That would be great, wouldn’t it?

Here’s a super simple (and massively powerful) NLP technique to do just that – to put thoughts of a problem behind you.

When we think about our life, we have a mental construct that’s called a “timeline.” We have NOW. We’re in it. There’s also a sense of past. And a future. These things actually have directionality in our minds. We “see” our life around us in space. For most people I discuss this with, the future is ahead of them, in a direct line moving out into space in front of the body. Tomorrow is close in front, and next week is further out in front, and next year is further out than that, moving along a line stretching from your body out into infinity in front of you. The past is often behind, directly behind us, and similarly, the further back in space behind the body is the further back in time in our minds. PS: Everyone’s different and there’s no right or wrong timeline. MY future is out to my right hand side, and the past goes off to my left.

Sit for a moment and think about your life, and identify your personal sense of time, your timeline.  Got it? Good!

Now, for a moment, focus on the problem you’ve been stewing about, the thing you’d like to STOP giving your mental energy.  Perhaps it’s something outside of your control and there’s no point in generating endless bad feelings about it. Or something that belongs in the past and you haven’t put it there. Yet.

Let’s do that now! Make an image in your mind that represents the “problem.” Any image will do. Whatever pops into your mind’s eye is fine. Now look at that picture, pretend it’s a picture on a canvas or screen. Notice in particular the size of the image and where it seems to loom in space.  Is it right in front of you?  Off to the side?   Close? Far away? Is it life size? Notice what you can notice about the qualities of the picture, size and location.

Now, imagine that the picture begins to change. It’s getting smaller. Smaller, it’s collapsing in on itself, like a resizing in photo-shop. Same image, just smaller. Keep shrinking it. More. Until the picture’s canvas or screen is the size of a postage stamp.  Now, shrink it to half that size! Good! Now, check in with yourself and notice if you feel better in some way about the “problem.”

Next step. Imagine that the tiny picture sprouts wings and the image begins to fly through space, like a moth. And it takes off into the directionality of your past. If that is behind you (your past), see the image moving away from you in space behind you. Further and further behind you.   Until you can’t even see it. Now, the wings fall off and the picture plops down and stays, planted where it fell. Into the past. Where it belongs.

Check in again with yourself, and see if the “problem” feels different to you. Perhaps it’s not even there. A problem is only a problem if you think it is, and this process changes your thinking. Go for it, and discover for yourself how you can reframe your thoughts so quickly and powerfully. You’re amazing beyond your own knowing, and this process is a super easy way to tell your brain: it’s over!

Go for it and let me know your results!

Warm Regards,
Connie

PS:  Michael and I have 1-day seminar events coming up in September.  You can learn more ways to use pictures, feelings, sounds, to change your thinking and change your life.  More info is here:  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com

The Snowball Effect – Positive Changes Grow with Mindworks Hypnosis

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

“My life has improved across the board!”  Michael has received a wonderful testimonial of his clinical changework utilizing Neuro Linguistic Programming.  Watch this video.  It’s longer than most, because Margot here has a LOT to say about how her life is noticeably improving.

Michael worked with this lady, and helped her with a fear of travel, and also turned “boring moments” of her life into excitement.  Boring is an attitude, a state of mind.  Change your mind and you change your life.  Michael helped her to recognize life as an exciting adventure.  And it is, for her, more and more.  Listen!  Watch!

Margot has noticed improvements in public speaking, comfort, teaching, socializing, work, travel.  Life is fun (and exciting) again.  Suddenly, adventures materialize to meet the expectations — life has a way of doing that!!  Margot here is more open to opportunities, now she NOTICES them, and that gives her more.  Nudges towards adventure.  She’s been acting on them.  Yay, Margot!

When you make positive changes in your life, many things are touched and improve as well.  NLP is a powerhouse avenue to positive changes.  It’s been described as “hypnosis on steroids.”  Yes, it is.  Look at this lady’s life transformation–spoken in her own words, after a few minutes of changework with Michael.

I have a friend who says:  “If it’s true, it ain’t bragging.”  I’m not bragging when I say Michael and I are GOOD at what we do.  Very, very good.

Michael is also available (as am I) for client sessions.  Call us:  (425) 564-8608 and discover the most effective hypnotherapy in the Seattle area and beyond.  No brag.  Just fact.  🙂  Ask Margot.

Warm Regards,
Connie

The Art of Successful Thinking – That’s NLP

The Power of Yet
The Power of Yet

Happy 2012!  It’s a new year.

Yesterday I was talking to someone who didn’t have a clue what hypnosis is or NLP is (Neuro-Linguistic Programming ™) or what hypnotherapy is or even a very positive view of the human mind and human capabilities.  They said they thought I help “losers who need their hand held while they whine.”  Uh, no.  Gutter ball!

#1.  There are no “losers,” there are people who feel stuck because they perceive limited choices in certain contexts.  #2.  This isn’t about story telling or hand-holding, it’s about life change and behavioral change.  NOW.

NLP is my primary tool. It’s the study of successful thinking.  How successful people do what they do, dissecting their UN-conscious strategies that lead to desired outcomes.  We ALL can create new strategies that lead to success, and change our behaviors, our thinking, our lives.  We all can model excellence.  An easy way to do this is through hypnosis and NLP.

Hypnosis is simply a method of accessing more or your own mind’s power and creativity and flexibility.  When there’s a “problem,” there’s a strategy that needs tweaking that is essentially a lack of choice.  See cigarette, I must smoke.  Lack of choice.  Smell baking cookie, I must eat it.  Lack of choice.   See a spider, scream and run.  Lack of choice.

Hypnosis offers new unconscious choices, that supplant the old ones, that are more desired and lead to success.

That’s it, in a nutshell.  Hypnosis.  It’s a success builder.  And you define the success that you’re seeking.

I love what I do, and I love when someone begins to realize that they have more choices and can create their own life the way they want it.  And, they do it!  That’s when they write me the testimonials I have on my web pages.

Here’s a simple NLP thought process that can bring a new state of mind to a problem state of mind.  It involves the power of a few simple words to change how you’re thinking, and ultimately, what you do in the world.  The magic of “yet.”  That’s a  wonderful word.  So small, and so powerful.  What does it mean?  Take the following sentences in bold font and consider them fully.

 I can’t do X.  (X being stop smoking, or lose weight, or release fear or any statement of a limitation…)  “I can’t.”  Full stop.  End of story. Nothing is beyond that conclusion.
It’s a stopper thought.  And it leads to a myriad of negative emotions. Hopelessness, overwhelm, sad.

I can’t do X, yet.  The assumption, the implication here is that I will be able to do X at some time.  Eventually, I will X.  This little word “yet” opens doors to new possibilities, learning, and movement forward.  And what is the feeling with this?  Positive, motivated, optimistic.  I can’t do X yet.  But I will!

The second response to a limiting statement of “I can’t” is “What would it be like if you could?” Answer the question.  Think about it.  Seriously. Pretend it’s possible.  This drives the mind in a new direction, creating images and thoughts and feelings of
success.  What you focus on expands.  Now your mind is prompted to move in the
direction of what you do in fact want, not dwelling within the limitation of “I can’t.”  With this new focus, behavioral nudges and opportunities to move toward that goal just seem to appear.  And you’re doing what you couldn’t do before.  You hadn’t created the right
state of mind and body for it.  Yet!

To learn more about NLP for personal development, check out our one day seminar happening on Saturday,  2/4/12. http://www.seattlenlptraining.com.

I’m hoping for you a limitless 2012.  Make it so!

Warm Regards,  Connie

November Freebie: Here’s an NLP Technique for Procrastination-Busting. Play with it!

Hi, Hypnosis and NLP-interested People!

Happy Autumn!  I love this time of year.  Crispy!  Fresh.  A time for changes.  Here’s a really easy, fun, fast, and amazingly powerful technique to create change–as it’s used here, a tool to combat procrastination.

Books and mountains of words of advice have been written about procrastination, that inertia that says: “Do it later.” We all know that feeling. It’s something we want to do–sort of, but are just NOT doing. Something stops us. And that something is unknown, unseen, but we feel it. Looking at that sink of dirty dishes, I know the feeling.

I get a lot of clients who express that feeling as well. They want to exercise. They just don’t. They want to start a business. They just don’t. They want to create something, write something, learn something, organize something, clean something, DO something. They just don’t. Excuses miraculously appear that “justify” delay, with an inner thought: “I’ll do it later, I’ll do it tomorrow.”   Tomorrow, the same “put it off” feeling is in place, and more excuses appear.  Is this a familiar pattern to any of you?

Any activity can elicit procrastination feelings. Some people’s joy and positive desire and “I can’t wait, I can’t wait!” is another person’s “I don’t want to. Maybe tomorrow.” Manana!

What if it were easy to change this? What if it were easy to attach a feeling of motivation, passion, joy or even just “routine” to what we want to do? It is. I like the idea of shift to routine. If something is routine, we just do it. Because we do. No thought required. No struggle.

Here’s a simple yet powerful Neuro-Linguistic Programming ™ technique to do just that. It’s officially called a “visual sub-modality shift.” Michael calls it “Magic in action.” I call it “fun!” I’m going to walk you through a process to turn an activity that you’re procrastinating on into a routine activity you do easily.

What is routine to you? We’re all different. An example from my life is “brushing my teeth.” I do that every day. No ifs, ands, or buts. No struggle. No inner discussion. I just do it. It’s not a hardship. It’s routine. It might be something different for you. You get up and get dressed every day. Routine. Michael drinks coffee every day. Routine.  You check your email. You bathe. You comb your hair.

Pick an example in your life of a routine activity. Once you’ve settled on that, create an image in your mind that represents that activity. When you create a picture in your mind, the feeling attached (this is something I just do automatically) comes with it. Ok, got it? Good.

Now, what is an activity you’d like to become more routine? The thing you may be procrastinating on, perhaps like exercise. Make a picture in your mind that represents that. Just let it pop in. Got the second picture?  Good.

Now, I’ll walk you through the process.

First, study the picture of your routine activity. Notice all the photo-shop type qualities of the picture. Is it in color or black and white? Is it three-dimensional or flat like a photograph? Is there movement in the picture or is it still? How many images? Is it landscape mode, portrait mode, panoramic? How big is the picture. Is it life size? Poster size? Index card size? How far away from your mind’s eye is the picture?

We actually carry our inner pictures floating around us in space. Some are right in front of our face, some are at arm’s length, some are across the room, some are to the right of us, the left, above, below, behind, etc. Find the picture in space. Notice the clarity, focus, contrast, brightness, the saturation of color if there is color. Notice all those photo-shop type qualities.

Step two. Take the second picture, the procrastination one, and MATCH every quality to be the same as the qualities of the routine picture. We’re not talking content of the pictures here, we’re talking those qualities I’ve just mentioned. Brightness, location, size, clarity, color/no color, etc. Make your procrastination activity picture match in every way the routine picture.

Now, count to five.  Or, look out the window for a moment. Distract yourself. Think about something else. Just for a moment.

Now, think about the activity you had been procrastinating on…how do you feel about it now? Think about doing it right now or at your next reasonable available time. How do you feel? Are you making inner excuses not to do it or are you feeling more inclined to just do it?

If the change in feeling is pleasing to you, then, snap your fingers and tell yourself to keep the activity picture just like that–with the new qualities.

NLP is the real deal for life change.

NLP is the real deal for life change.

How we feel determines how we think, and what we do. This shift in feeling and thinking right now is going to lead to a shift in behaviors, what we actually DO in “the real world.” Prove it to yourself. Play with this and write to me with your success!

Enjoy your new-found power to get things done!

Allergy Relief in Action – “My Nose is Free!!”

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

As well as “doing” this work to help people make healthy and positive changes in their lives in a clinical context, Michael and I also teach.  The school side of what we do is inform and prepare others, including other area hypnotherapists, in the processes and power of NLP and hypnosis.  This video, below, is part of a class demonstration last weekend of what is known as “The NLP Allery Relief Process.”  The video is not complete, but it’s a good chunk of the work.

The idea here is:  Allergies are learned responses which can be unlearned and new responses learned.  Robert Dilts, an NLP “big name” who created this process I am demonstrating, called allergies “phobias of the immune system.”  NLP fixes phobias.  NLP can fix allergies as well.  Quicker than you can imagine.

In this video, we are replacing the neurology of an allergic response Gaia had to drinking coffee (runny nose, watery eyes, sneezing, coughing–your typical too much histamine responses) with a neutral experience.  Drinking water.  She can do that.  No problemo!!  We take that as a resource for unconsciously learning a new response to coffee.

What if she could drink coffee (as she used to be able to do) as easily and as comfortably as drinking water?  She can.  She does.  Watch!  As I touch her hand (firing off the resourceful state into her neurology via what is called an “NLP anchor”) she is relearning coffee drinking comfort, as easy as drinking water.

I love me some NLP!  If you’d like to learn more about the magic in action of NLP, check out the school side of what we do:  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com.  Mindworks NLP is a fully licensed State private vocational school.

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

How Would You Rather Feel?

Dad and the fish

Dad and the Fish!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I have a photograph of my dad on my desk.  Here it is!  I’m sharing it.  This is my dad the day he caught a fish–and what a fish!– and won a salmon derby in Canada.  That’s a 70+ pound salmon!!  In my mind, it was the happiest moment of his life!

Now, of course I didn’t know my dad his ENTIRE life, I showed up when he was around 30.  But in my mind, it captures the essence of happy.  What do you think?  And, thanks to Kodak, it’s captured forever.  This moment in time.  Framed.  On my desk.  When I see it, I feel happy, too.

Kodak is cool.  Photography, allowing us to capture a moment in time visually, terrific.  Well, we have something inside us that does even more than that.  We have a wonderful ability to not just capture but recreate a moment in time as well.  It’s called “memory.”  And it’s not just visual.  Not just a picture.  It’s got the vibrancy of full-sensory LIFE.  Re-LIVING.  Our memories capture all of it, sensory rich full-bodied experiences, with movement, scent, taste, breath, energy, sound, emotion, thought, etc.  It’s all in there.  Captured in our minds and in our memories.

Guess what?  This is useful!!

Thoughts are attached to feelings.  Memory is attached to all of it.  If my dad were still alive, and I asked him to remember that moment,  that day he caught “the fish” (as it’s known in family lore), he would re-experience all that emotion you see in the picture in his body now.  Just as vividly and richly.  He would “get happy.”  Guess what?  This is useful!  🙂

 Our unconscious minds (accessible more than we know) have stored the experience.  We can capture it again via memory and use it NOW.

One of the things I do for clients is create good feelings and capture them for specific contexts.  In a problem situation, I ask them:  “How would you rather feel?”  We can do that.  Capture and bring those good feelings to where they are useful.  If it’s fear, bring calm.  You can’t have both, fear and calm operating in your body at the same time.  If it’s tension, bring relaxed.  You can’t have both, tense and relaxed at the same time.  If it’s sad, bring some happy.  You can’t be both, sad and happy at the same time.  As the old song goes:  something’s gotta give!  It’s the negative, unwanted feeling which goes.  And the positive, desired feeling which stays.

That’s NLP.  Simple processes which make that happen.  So fast!

And when you change how you feel, you change how you think, and you change what you do.

 Have you ever made soup “from scratch?”  Adding  and blending spices and seasonings, salt, pepper, oregano, what have you, and tasting, adding a little more of this, and tasting, a little more of that, and tasting, until it’s JUST RIGHT.  Alchemy happens, the flavors meld and merge in the pot into something brand new, something perfectly delicious.  Well, we can do the same thing with feelings.  Create new ones.  Good ones.

 I do this with clients!  I’m a master chef and my spices are feelings, and I custom blend new, useful feelings for clients, feelings that advance them in new directions.  We even give these new feelings new names.  I’m often amused with the names my clients create for them.  Two recent examples:  girl’s resourceful new feeling a few days ago was called “Yay, me!” and man’s yesterday was “Quiet confidence with a smile.” I like both of those!!

What’s really useful is bringing these designer, resourceful feelings into life to change things.  That’s NLP.

It’s a simple process and enormously powerful.  To feel good, I mean.

Finding out how to feel good in ways and places you want to feel good is really, really easy.  Call me.

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.

NLP Explained – What is Neuro-Linguistic Programming and how will it help me change my life? (Easily!)

Here’s another video! (I’m just a video makin’ machine today!!) 🙂

To experience life change with this methodology:
http://www.mindworkshypnosis.net.

To learn this life-changing methodology:
http://www.seattlenlptraining.com

NLP is a conversational, high-tech hypnosis…the most powerful change tool on earth.  It’s also been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  Absolutely.  This is the primary thing which has reshaped by body (minus 75+ pounds) and my life.  Do you think I’d have been comfortable and confident enough before NLP to make a video such as the above and chat to the world?  No way, Jose.  Do you think I’d be running my own businesses?  Perhaps, but I doubt as successfully.

NLP is a set of tools for life success.  This is what sets me above other hypnotherapists’ level of success–my NLP.  There are Practitioners of NLP, there are Master Practitioners of NLP, and beyond that level of skill, there are Trainers of NLP.   I’m a Licensed Trainer of NLP ™.  And, when you come to my office, what you’re going to receive is neuro-linguistic hypnotherapy.  In my estimation, the power of this blend and the postive changes achieved through this exceeds anything else I’ve ever heard of or experienced on earth.  I’d love it if you’d let me prove it to you.

Warm Regards,
Connie

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.

Warm Regards,
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.

Hypnosis Expands the Boundaries of Your Thinking

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

Michael and I had some fun today, filming what we call “magic moments.”  They’re not hypnosis, per se, but they’re entertaining and they do illustrate something about hypnosis.  Watch this video carefully, and follow the directions to see something totally amazing!  You really do grow your brain with hypnosis, grow your resourcefulness, grow your joy, grow your life success.

Warm Regards,

Put a New Frame on it!

A problem is simply a frame of mind, a way of looking at things.  If it’s not a problem to YOU, it’s not a problem.  Think about flying on an airplane.  After all the hustle/bustle of travel arrangements, packing, airports, and etc. when I get on a plane, I settle into the seat and go:  “ahhhhhhhhh.”  Now it’s time to relax.  No worries.   All I have to do is sit here and enjoy myself.  Perhaps for someone else sitting down a few rows,  it’s churning turmoil inside, it’s white-knuckle time.  It’s visions of disaster.  It doesn’t have to be.  You can change your mind.  And experience life differently.  Yes, about flying, and pretty much about ANYTHING!  That’s what hypnosis can do!  It’s called “reframing.”

Perhaps you’re skeptical about those statements.   Here’s a few recent examples of reframing from my life, for further illustration.

I got caught up in the shopping frenzy last week.  My husband and I were at the mall, and I found a shirt I loved.  The color in particular was appealing to me.  Hypnotists have an “inside joke” about the color purple being hypnotic, because one of the most famous and successful hypnotists in the world, Milton Erickson, was fond of wearing bright purple jumpsuits.  Color analysis books describe purple as the dreamer color.

I found a purple shirt.  Not just any old purple, this was a rich, deep royal purple, a magically hypnotic jewel-tone purple.  I was excited to find it, and on sale!  🙂  As I was checking out at the department store, the clerk commented on the “grape” shirt.  Grape?  Yikes.  I almost put it back.  I don’t want a grape shirt, as that sounds utterly unappealing.  Purple, yes.  Grape, forget about it!  One word flipped my state of mind about the shirt, and not in a good way.  She reframed my shirt (negatively) and almost lost the sale.  This is something we teach in our NLP for Sales courses, how to reframe in a way that sells, not creates aversion.

Here’s another example of reframing.  This is a sign.

Crosswalk Sign

Perhaps you’re familiar with it.  It indicates a pedestrian crosswalk.  It’s a stylized guy crossing the street.  You can see that.

Here is a sign I saw today in a parking garage.

Pedestrian Crossing

They’ve shifted the sign slightly, and the meaning massively.  What it thinks it’s saying is “pedestrian crossing,” but what I see is a pedestrian falling, and flying through the air, obviously after being struck by a moving vehicle.  Yikes, again!  A different angle on the picture, and the whole meaning changes.  That’s reframing.

Here’s a classic example of reframing.  Imagine a roaring fire in a fireplace.  That elicits positive feelings, right?  Cozy, nice, warm.  Now, expand the picture’s parameter, and you see the house is on fire as well.  Oh, no, run for your lives!  Negative feelings.  Now expand the picture further and you see it’s all a movie set and they’re only filming a controlled reproduction of a house fire.  Positive feelings, again.  A shift of frame changes everything.

What makes this “reframing” process cool of course is changing things that are problems in your life to non-problems.  Like the fear of flying.  What if your experience of planes and flight became a frame of relaxation, like lounging on a tropical beach or sitting in your easy chair at home?  Hypnosis can do that.

Big secret:   How we feel and how we respond to things and the thoughts/frames we create around them:  it’s all moveable furniture.  Within our control.  If you want to rearrange your mental furniture in a way that creates more beauty and ease  and success in your life, I can help.  That is my gig.  My passion.  My joy.  Come see me and we’ll reframe those problems out of existence.

Warm Regards,
Connie

Confidence Booster – Michael’s Tirade

Connie Brannan, CHt., Master Hypnotist

Connie Brannan, CHt., Master Hypnotist

Hi, again!  The other day my husband and fellow hypnotist, Michael, was reading the Sunday paper. He likes to do that! 🙂 In particular, he was reading Parade Magazine, one of the little inserts next to the grocery ads, coupons, and TV schedule. Under “Healthystyle Cheat Sheet” they had a little article called: “Two-Second Confidence Booster.” Basically, it was about a study and “growing research” that “found” that your body position affects your mood. Specifically, that sitting up straight can affect confidence.

Well, duh!

Michael was irritated that this was being presented as something new and groundbreaking. It’s not! This is something NLP, Neuro-Linguistic Programming, has known and advanced upon a hundred-thousand-fold over the past several DECADES, how the mind and body are linked and processes to change how you feel, how you think, how you act. I said: wow, talk about just the tip of the iceberg, that this little article shows just a tiny, tiny, miniscule understanding of our power for change and presents it as something so exciting and “new!” Michael said: it’s NOT even the tip of the iceberg. It’s less than that!

Our conclusion: more people need to know about NLP!!!

In the 70’s, NLP founder (and our teacher!) Dr. Richard Bandler developed an entire methodology that allows people to control their own lives, in his words: “get through it, get over it, get to it!” Motivation. Healing past hurts, letting go of fears and limiting beliefs, changing your current state of mind and life, and so much more, through such easy yet powerful techniques. As Richard also says: With NLP you are learning to “Drive your own bus.” I love me some Richard Bandler. He’s the KING! He’s licensed us to teach these materials, which we do through our school in the Seattle area: Mindworks NLP. If you’d like to know more about that, call me or look here:  http://www.seattlenlptraining.com.

NLP is hypnosis on steroids!

Connie and Michael with the KING, Dr. Richard Bandler.

Connie and Michael with the KING, Dr. Richard Bandler.

Michael and I are going to go study further with Dr. Bandler in Orlando, Florida in a few months! Yay!!

I use a blend of NLP and hypnosis in my therapy practice. Like chocolate and peanut butter! Two great things that go great together! I think it’s super powerful this blend of hypnosis and NLP, and my initial certification is as a “Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapist.” I love these tools for change. And there’s a hell of a lot more power to it than “sit up straight!”
