Wishful Thinking vs Wish-Fulfill Thinking

Happy Trance

When Dreaming is Useful.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Words are my work tool.  Words are power.  Words move us and matter.  I was thinking the other day about the phrase “Wishful Thinking.”  It has a negative connotation. If we’re dreaming about something we’d like someday that we don’t figure will manifest, we say: “Oh, that’s just wishful thinking.” We don’t expect success.  We don’t work for success.  And we don’t get success.

Hypnosis and NLP are absolutely NOT “wishful thinking” like that.  You know what they are?  WISH-FULFILL THINKING.  Wish fulfill.  As in, get what you’re wishing for.  People are so much more powerful to create success in their lives than they know.  I know. People are powerful, and when the mind is directed via focused positively-directed wish-fulfill thinking, success happens.

We do tend to get what we expect.  Expectation colors all, and reveals itself in what we do, how we act in the world.  Wishful thinking expects failure. So failure happens.  Wish-fulfill thinking expects success. Success happens.  Henry Ford is famous for expressing this same idea:  “If you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right!”

How does this work?  The mind moves in the direction of its dominant thoughts, so when an outcome (such as successful weight loss, habit change around smoking, calmness instead of anxiety, etc.) becomes dominant, that’s what we do.  And how we live.  That’s what we create for ourselves in our lives.

Hypnosis and NLP Neuro Linguistic Programming are all about directing the mind to focus on what we want, not what we don’t want.  And we train the mind to have an expectation of success.  “Dream wantonly, and expect to succeed.”  This is wish-fullfill thinking.

As always, the proof is in the pudding.  Check out my client reports.  Directing your mind to success (in this UNconscious realm, outside of conscious interference, back behind the curtain in the mind as it were) works to create success.  Any success.

I offer private client sessions to help you direct your mind and create life successes.  Find out more in my free in person consultation.  I’m happy to meet with you.  I love to chat about what I do and how the mind works.  That’s why I named my business “Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.”  Dump the wishful thinking, and find your power with unconscious wish-fulfill thinking.

Mow Down Problems! Yes, change can be this fast!

Best Seattle Hypnotherapy & NLP Services.

Go For It!

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

The unconscious mind loves stories, and metaphors.  Symbolic meaning.  So, when I heard this lawn mower going off, at first I was annoyed by the sound.  Then, I thought.  Wait!  This is a story!  It’s about rapid, powerful change.

And in the world of amazing iphones, I captured the moment.

When I was a kid, lawn mowers were these muscle-intensive things you pushed, and the motion rolled the blades.  Vintage, antiquated, and slow.  Mowing the lawn was a big project.  Look at this bad boy moving!  As I said, fast and powerful, and virtually effortless on the part of the operator.

That’s skilled hypnotherapy & NLP as well.  Fast and powerful, and from the user point of view, oh so easy.

If your life has some weeds (limiting beliefs) and unruly tufts of grass growing where you don’t want it (bad habits), we can mow them down.  Let us help!  Here are some examples of tangible results from our Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy ® work:

Intelligence and creativity really does make a difference for fast, powerful, lasting change.

Goodbye to Fear of Failure and Fear of Rejection – Client Testimonial

Best Seattle Area Hypnotherapy, that's Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Get happy, with hypnosis.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

Some people are ready for change and success.  Are you one of them?  Kal, from Seattle, sure was. We had a few sessions, and now he sees himself and the world in a whole new way, a more resourceful way.

Goodbye, fear of failure and fear of rejection–that was ridiculous in the first place, and now it’s gone.  There is nothing standing in the way of his success now.  Yay, for Kal! He’s found more power through our NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and hypnosis change work.

Here’s what Kal reports about his experience with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP:

“Working with Connie one-on-one is the best decision I’ve made to create breakthroughs and lasting change in my life and career.  Before engaging Connie, I was using the approach of rationalization to work around fear of rejection and failure with limited success. However, what made the difference with Connie is that she customizes the NLP techniques for individual goals and objectives, thereby transforming thought patterns to produce lasting change and effective results. Did I mention she is funny, excellent at what she does, and a delight to work with?” ~ Kal, Seattle

Change is easy, with the right tools.

If you’re ready for some new positive energy in your life, we can do that.  If you’re ready to let go of limiting beliefs, we can do that, as well.  The right tools, in the right hands, can work wonders.  Find out for yourself.  Call us and learn more about Neuro Linguistic Hypnotherapy:  425-564-8608.  www.mindworkshypnosis.net

Another Testimonial of Hypnosis & NLP Success for Mindworks Hypnosis.

Create your future.

Create your future.

“I was at a proverbial crossroads in my life and knew it was time to make some changes, examine my ambitions & goals and move bravely forward into my future – perhaps an entirely new future. However, before I could do that, I needed to release some patterns & beliefs that had been holding me back.

When I discovered Mindworks, I suspected it could be ideal for my needs. One consultation with Connie and I knew I had found the perfect place and the perfect person to help me. I was immediately at ease with Connie. Her ability to compassionately and skillfully blend techniques of NLP and hypnosis allow the client to discover solutions to their own issues and problems. I trust her. I believe in her and the tools that she passionately & masterfully uses to guide you to your own truth.”  Kerry D., Kent, WA.

I’m happy when my clients “get it.”  It being an understanding of their own power and what this process called hypnosis really is.  Hypnosis is not my power over a client, it’s a client becoming empowered in his/her own life and choices.  And that is absolutely under their control.

People aren’t really stuck.  They just think they are.  Until they realize otherwise.  Hypnosis helps in that realization.  I love this work, and I love how powerful people are, when they decide to tap into the riches inside their own minds.

Warm Regards,
Connie

 

The Food Obsessing is Over – Testimonial of Success for Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Kicking the food temptations.

Kicking the food temptations.

Hi, Seattle area hypnosis friends!

I got another fabulous, happy client email the other day.  Lori H. of Mercer Island was reporting her progress after two hypnosis and NLP sessions with me.  She sent me the accompanying photo and story.

“Hi Connie,

Just had to send along this spread of the party I was at last night. All of the things I find the hardest to resist! Meats, cheeses, bread, crackers, nuts. It was so nothing to me! I didn’t have ONE THING! And the best part was I didn’t WANT one thing!

It’s just so amazing to me. I am sure it’s “another day at the office” for you but, for me…oh my goodness it was so awesome to not obsess over having it or not…wow. Thank you!!!”  — Lori H., Mercer Island, WA

That’s right.  Positive changes afoot.  Yay!  After only one session Lori also commented that she was “shocked.”  In a good way, the best way, with the easy-feeling behavioral changes she was seeing in herself.  That’s the power of skilled hypnotherapy.

As always, the opportunity to discover this success for yourself exists.  It’s a phone call away.  Connie & Michael Brannan, Mindworks Hypnosis @ (425) 564-8608.

Warm Regards,
Connie

Success Can Last

SUCCESS!  Great word, fabulous idea.  Seeing the word in print should spur positive feelings, should it not?

I saw a picture the other day.  A beach, with “success” scratched in the sand near the surf’s edge.  A friend shared this on Facebook, as an inspirational thing.  No, it isn’t!  I delve daily into the world of unconscious communications.  I find and study (and change when useful) what is being communicated under the surface, which absolutely does affect us.  A facet of my job is that I have trained myself to look for and listen in particular for “limiting beliefs,” ideas which stop us from success.

This picture has a very limiting belief embedded within.  It’s an unconscous communication, and it’s quite negative.

Imagine this picture.  The tide is out, and the sand is fairly dry but still moist.  What’s about to happen?  Soon, that word will be washed away, vanish, be obliterated.  You know it’s going to happen, it’s a function of the location of the word and the ephemeral manner in which it is written in the sand and the inevitability of the tide.  Messages in the sand do not remain.  They go away.

“Success does not last.”

NOT a message I like for my unconscious mind!

I’d rather believe success is something we control and keep for as long as we want it.  Not subject to the whims of nature.  I’d rather have a message of empowerment (I create success) rather than disempowerment (you’re going to lose it soon and there’s nothing you can do).

Beliefs are not just ideas.  They are movement operators.  They create action and activity in us.  Or they stop us.  This picture is a stopper!  Something to muse upon!

Warm Regards,
Connie
