Hello, Hypnosis Enthusiasts!
I love to hear back from my clients with news of their current state of mind/body after our work. Here’s the latest, from T.V. of Redmond, Washington, who had been suffering depression:
“I’m happy. More energy. It’s wonderful! I’m finished with depression. I wake up every morning, I’m happy to wake up, it’s easy to wake up, and I feel full of energy!”
She informed me that she is no longer taking medication for depression, as she had been doing prior to our work. She is being more physically active, working out, doing sports, and has decided on a new career path for herself as well–thoughts of which had been debilitating to her in the past.
Our work changed how she feels, how she experiences life. Now, life is good. When you change how you feel, you change how you think, you change what behaviors you engage in in the world, and you make better decisions for your health and success. Way to go, T!
For the record, I’m not medical and when a client has medically diagnosed issues I get a doctor’s referral–T.V. was working with her MD who ended her drugs. They are no longer necessary. I don’t “treat depression,” but how amazing (or not) that life changes and depression vanishes so fast and effectively with Neuro-Linguistic Hypnotherapy.
I was at the mall today, and I found it to be a red letter day to buy red leather boots. Looking around the mall, I couldn’t help but notice boots upon boots upon boots–my reticular activating system was set on the boot channel, it seems. In every store display window, and on the majority of feet marching past, old and young–EVERYONE in Seattle it seems was wearing boots today. ‘Tis the season. Shopping, and cold and wet. BOOTS are the style. Ankle boots, thigh high, and everything in between. Fur, leather, rubber, knit. Mostly black, but a few brights like my red out there.
Bombarded by the boots, I finally said: “Ok, I’m in!” The search was on, and I covered a lot of territory. Shopping can take awhile, but when you find a real and valuable gem, you get to chortle with glee. Now, the perfect new boots are in the bag. My new red suede boots are very nice, and extremely well made. Quality. I think they’ll stand up to wear and last and look terrific long into the new year, and the next and the next. It’s important to choose quality. Cheapo and shoddy mass production don’t cut it. They tend to be ill fitting, cause blisters, and fall apart after walking in snow. You want fine crafted workmanship. In footwear, and in hypnotists.
I think hypnosis should be as popular as boots. That would be a GOOD thing for the world, with happier, healthier people running around enjoying life more and more and accomplishing their goals more and more and faster and easier. That’s the power of hypnosis. A helping tool deluxe! When shopping, whether it’s for shoes or for a hypnotist, and you’re looking for high quality, you’ve got to be alert to avoid weak and inferior product. Unfortunately, it’s out there, as well. Impersonal, and unskilled product.
Beware of hypnosis stores, with an eye on the bottom line, not the heart. In the realm of your mind, you want somebody GOOD, somebody who can really help, with real and extensive training. Hypnosis is an art, not a “cookie cutter” formula. You want somebody with creativity as well as skill. You want somebody with presence and passion and heart, who’s been around the block and back again, and CARES. You won’t find all that at the “here, put on these goggles and listen to this tape, maybe you’ll be hypnotized and maybe not, maybe these suggestions will apply to your situation and maybe not” chain hypnosis store.
When you’re choosing a hypnotist, here are a few things to consider. How many live, in-person trainings have they completed, and how recently? What are the certifications earned? Ask, and verify. Are they from recognized, reputable schools, or is it Joe in his basement printing out certs for his 2 hour internet course? Are they committed to continuing education? Do they have an explicit code of ethics to share with you? How many different helping tools have they learned and mastered? What professional hypnosis affiliations, national and local, do they belong to? How long have they been in business as a hypnotherapist? Are there testimonials of proven success for issues similar to yours? Do they have a business license? Are they registered with the State of Washington as a hypnotherapist? Also very important, trust your own vibe, how do they come across, look and/or sound (on the phone or face to face)–is the emphasis on “squeeze the money” or “I want to help!”?

I’m giving a presentation this month to the Oregon Hypnotherapy Association, a next-state-over organization of hypnosis professionals. I’m very excited that I’ve been invited to do so. It’s terrific when we can share our knowledge, and further the professionalism of hypnosis.
Some people out there still think hypnosis is about barking like dogs and dancing like chickens. Uh…no. It’s about positive life change, it’s about programming your mind for success (which you get to define). It’s a tool for change. And I love it with a passion, as you know if you’ve been reading my bloggings, and now…I get to share some of my passion in Oregon with like-minded professionals. Good stuff!
I was just in Oregon a few days ago, at the ocean. Oregon is so beautiful, green, and fresh, much like home! It’s a pleasure and a privilege to go share some of my hypno-know-how with other professionals. 🙂
In case any of my readers are in Oregon or will be on September 25th and are interested, here is more info: http://www.hypnosis-oregon.com/news. The language of influence. I talk about effective communications with my favorite chat-partner: the unconscious mind.
It’s another kudo for my “I love me wall,” and another opportunity to share and visit one of my favorite states. States in geography, and states of mind. Both! Oregon and hypnosis, two great things that go great together. Wish me luck, and join me if you’re so inclined!
