Quit Smoking Now, Seattle, with Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP

Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP Seattle help you quit smoking, end tobacco, and live a healthier life.
Stop smoking now

Hi, Hypnosis Friends!

With the BC wildfires burning and blowing haze and smoke into our world here in the Seattle area, the LAST thing you need to be doing is adding your own smoke to the mix.

It’s hard enough to breathe out there.

Do you want change?  Are you ready to take control of the smoking habit and turn it off?  You can.  What people really don’t understand is how powerful they are, on the UN-conscious level.  Yes, you can stop smoking.

I have a new vehicle.  And one of the things I’ve been enjoying about it (besides the “new car” smell), is how clean the windshield is and how clearly I can see while I’m driving.  My old vehicle had rock chip repairs right in my line of sight and it was annoying.  However, every time I drove this past week or so, there were thousands of particles of smoke, ash, haze, landing on my windshield and attaching to my windshield.  So it’s hard to see.  The wipers don’t remove the particles.   Annoying times a thousand.  It’s like I need a car wash every day.

I was thinking.  That’s like your lungs.  Each and every time you smoke you’re depositing gunk and junk in there.  And it sticks around.  Not good.

Here’s the bottom line.  Your thinking mind isn’t enough to get the job done, if you’re like most people.  Your conscious mind is thinking, analysis, logic, reason.  I KNOW you have reasons to quit smoking.  If you haven’t (yet), that’s because your conscious mind isn’t strong enough to enforce change.  Your UN-conscious can!  This is the part of the mind we communicate with in hypnosis and NLP.  This part of your mind is the enforcer.  The feeling part of your mind.  Emotion, intuition, creativity.  The good stuff!  If you don’t feel like smoking, you won’t.  Your creative mind will find something more healthy and useful to do, and put it in the places where smoking habit was.  The UN-conscious drivers of behavior and habit are removed.  And you are suddenly able to do the things you’ve been consciously wanting to do.  Or not do.

It’s really that easy.  All you need to do is get your UN-conscious mind on board with your quit smoking project.  And that’s what I help you do.  Call me and I’ll be happy to meet with you and explain in detail what we do at Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP.  Lots of cool things.  NLP is a conversational, open-eyed interactive hypnosis, that is fun and fascinating.  It’s been called “hypnosis on steroids.”  When  you’re ready to go for it, so am I.

I look forward to meeting you.

All the Best,

Power Unleashed. Another 5-Star Review of Mindworks Hypnosis & NLP on Google.

Stop smoking now.
Hypnosis & NLP to quit smoking.

Hi, Hypnosis Friends.

Hypnosis works!  It really does.  I’ve been working repeatedly at explaining this power we have to control our life and outcomes, and I love it when other voices join in to corroborate.

I received another 5-star review of my hypnotherapy and NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming) services on my Google business listing.  This gentleman was a smoker for the bulk of his life, 50+ years as he described it, and he’s now a nonsmoker.  I say:  better late than never!

He found his power through our work:

“After trying every other known method to quit smoking, went to Connie six weeks ago and have been smoke free since. Highly recommend her.  I came out of her office a non-smoker.  I tried all the conventional methods to quit and nothing worked.  After 50 years of smoking, it’s almost unbelievable that I do not have any desire for a cigarette and know that I will never smoke again.  Thank you Connie, you’re a life saver.”  Robert B., Camano Island, WA

A life was saved, yes!  And he did it.  I show the way, and help facilitate change with my tools, and the person him or herself holds the power to make it happen.  We unleash YOUR power.  Collaboration.  That’s NLP.

Yay for Robert and a greater enjoyment of life and improved health for the rest of his life.

What a Bendy Straw Knows and You Can Learn

Flexibility for the Win!

Everyone’s talking about “New  Year’s Resolutions.” But how do we actually create newness and change?

With  hypnosis and NLP, you can change how you think, and how you feel about things.  You can change how you see things, and even what you believe to be true.

And, all this leads to what’s really important: you can change your behaviors, change what you do in the  world. And what you don’t do.

I have a favorite quote from comedian, George Carlin. He’s talking about words and the perplexity of words.  We have words to describe burnability: something is flammable, something is nonflammable, or something is inflammable. Carlin says, why three choices?  “Either the thing flams or it doesn’t!”

That’s funny. That’s also called digital thinking. Yes, no, on off. When you change to thinking along a continuum, you open up an infinity of new choices. More choices, equals more flexibility, equals more success. In short, hypnosis finds and gives you more choice.

There’s an expression in NLP: “the one with the most flexibility wins.” Behavioral flexibility is the holy grail. It’s what we want and seek for our clients and ourselves. If you’re not flexible, you’re rigid, stiff, always doing what you’ve always done. You’re stuck! Lao Tzu (ancient philosopher) said: “Bend like a reed in the wind – that is the real strength.  The old hard tree breaks and falls when the wind blows.  The young tree bends and does not break.”  Hypnosis opens up unstuck, also called choice, also called flexibility.

Here’s a real world example. I had a client yesterday who gravely informed me that he’s an “addict” to cigarettes. Now, that’s a STUCK statement. He’s trapped! He’s done. Put him in his coffin. An addict can’t quit smoking, by definition. We used hypnosis & NLP to change how he sees himself, and when the label “addict” left, so did a restriction on his choices.

In one piece of our work, we asked the creative unconscious mind to come up with completely healthy alternative behaviors to replace smoking. The unconscious can do that in a heartbeat, and did. Now, there are many new options available to him,  behaviorally. And we enticed his mind to put those new choices into action. This pulled the rug out from under being “addicted” to smoking. Now he has the freedom to say “no way in hell” to cigarettes. And he did. We created a new nonsmoker yesterday.

If you’re stuck in a behavior, in a habit, a pattern, a way of thinking, feeling, or being that does not serve you…there are more choices than you can currently see. Hypnosis can open up that trap, let you out of the cage and into the sunlight of infinite  resourcefulness.

Warm Regards,

“Pop”ping a bad habit: Goodbye Soft Drink Addiction

Pop your bad habits, with hypnosis.

Another success story.  K.O. of Renton wanted some help with weight management.  One of her habits was sugar consumption, in the form of soda.  Lots of it.  She was ready for healthy changes.

We did some work.  Yesterday she reported to me:  two weeks and she hasn’t touched it.  No pop!  None.  No desires for it, either.  She’s choosing water instead.

Healthy choice!  Yay, K.O.  (Knockout!!)  Knocking out the undesired habits.

“I’m thrilled!”  she said, yesterday.  Me, too, K.O, I’m happy for your success.

Are there any habits you’d like to pop?  It’s very very doable.  🙂

Warm Regards,
