The Monthly Trance - Happy 2009!
Newsletter: Where attention goes,
Happy Holidays from the Mindworks
Hypnosis family to you and yours! Here's to making
2009 a most exciting, fulfilling, successful year of
our lives, and incorporating the techniques and
skills of hypnosis to help us get there. We're
excited to report some new beginnings for
ourselves: Michael has been elected as President
of the NGHWA, National Guild of Hypnotists,
Washington State Chapter, for 2009! And I've been
elected to the Board of Directors as well, as
Where Attention Goes,
New year. New start. We always think
about newness at this time of year, in the form of "New
Year's Resolutions." Making changes, improvements, thinking
about how I want to make my life better, in this way, that
way... My personal new year's resolution is marketing my
business more successfully, yours may be to quit smoking,
let go of a few pounds, and so on. How to do that? What
you focus on expands. Where attention goes, energy flows.
Here are the questions I used to ask myself in an attempt to
propel myself forward on a project or task or to try
something new when I felt hesitant and fearful:
What am I afraid of?
What's the worst that could possibly happen?
These questions focus attention on the fear and negative
outcomes. Ok, what am I afraid of? Uncertainty, failure,
expense, humiliation, ruination? What's the worst that
could possibly happen? That one opens up an even larger
shop of horrors in my mind!! What you focus on expands. As
you churn up and expand your fear and play out all the ideas
of what could go wrong in excruciating detail, does that
increase your feelings of "I can do it" or "I will do it,"
or even "I'm likely to do it?" I don't think so! Here's
what you need to do to break out of that straightjacket:
Think outside the box, the box being your fear. What's
outside there? What are you not seeing now?
I can't do it. Ask yourself different questions, which will
activate a search for positive powers in your mind. "What
if I could? What would it be like if I could? If I had all
the resources I need in this moment to handle this in the
most efficient, effective, powerful, and easy way possible,
what might those resources be? Could it be that I can't not
do it? What, separate from me, can't do it? What else
can't not do it? What am I not noticing now that's beyond
the fear such that if I could see it, I can do it. And do
it well! ...Easily...Efficiently... Successfully."
Imagine the most positive outcome, and jump into it.
Experience it in your mind. The end of the process, event,
decision, or whatever you're mulling over. It's a done
deal. And it turned out PERFECTLY. Ideally. Better than
you could have imagined. Only you are imagining it, now.
In all its glorious perfection. How do you feel, now that
it all worked out so perfectly? What are your emotions,
what are your results? Is there pride, increased
self-esteem, satisfaction? Joy? Has it increased your
financial security? How has your success affected others in
a positive way? What is the good you've accomplished? Take
this pool of positive emotions and ideas generated, and dive
in. Splash around for awhile. It's all good. Prime your
unconscious mind to "make it so!" That's certainly better
than focusing on and growing your fear.
Where attention goes, energy flows. Make it a positive
energy and propel yourself forward to new heights, new
successes, new powers. New freedom from that which had been
holding you back.

Self hypnosis is a very powerful
way to prime your mind for success, and learn to plant
your own suggestions/seeds for positive growth. If

outcomes, how to craft suggestions, language of
