Fear of Germs and Fear of Vomit Vanish with Mindworks Hypnosis of Seattle.

End fear with Seattle’s most skilled Hypnosis & NLP – Mindworks Hypnosis

Hi, Guys!

I’ve been working with children lately.  It’s good to fix a problem early in life, rather than suffer for decades.  I wish I had known about NLP® in my early life, it would have spared me decades of fear.  I had arachnophobia.  Fear of Spiders.  Until I didn’t.  NLP® fixed that problem in my life six years ago.

Here’s a report from the mom of an 11 year old girl who had obsessive fear and panic around vomit and germs.  I worked with the girl recently.

“Hi Connie, Today I went to pick her up at school and she was all smiles.  She said that a friend of hers threw up and she was ok. She touched the “magic spot” on her hand and that completely calmed her down. She said that she was more worried for her friend than for herself.  This is a big milestone for her and you can see it just by looking at her today: pure happiness.  Thanks again.”  F.T.,  Bellevue, WA.

Yay!  That’s what I like to hear.  “Pure happiness.”

By the way, the “magic spot” is an NLP® anchor we created and set for her, so that the girl can feel how she wants to feel instead of fear.  Children love magic buttons.  I have a few myself.  🙂

What are you or your loved ones afraid of?  Choose something else.  Called “not fear.”  With a suitably skilled NLP® person, guess what?  It’s easy.  Michael and I are Licensed Trainers of NLP®.

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.

Fear not

www.mindworkshypnosis.net to end fearHi, guys!

Lately, I’ve been thinking about fear.  And how unneccessary it is.  To feel it.  I had a spider phobia for a LONG time, long long long time.  Decades.  (I don’t really want to advertise how old I am, but I know precisely when and where I learned to be afraid of spiders–I was grade school age, probably around 7, at the bus stop on Mercer Island, off of 72nd street–while talking to a girl named Paige.)  It was a one-shot learning.  And, as I discovered a few years ago,  it can be unlearned just as quickly.

I was telling a story to Paige.  Not a nice story.  It was about spiders.  I was trying to scare HER.  With words.  And somehow, I scared myself so thoroughly and horrifically, that it STUCK.  I suppose that’s justice!  I was terrified of spiders for more than 30 years.  Seeing a spider would set me OFF–body recoiling, heart pounding, adrenalin pumping, an involuntary gasp or scream or two, and so on.  But not only that–I lived “on alert” for spiders.  Anytime I would enter a room, any room, but primarily bathrooms, I’d scan, the floor, the walls, the crevices, looking for danger.  Looking for spiders.   Any spider, regardless of size, would set off the same phobic response in me, even microscopic spiders.  If I’d see a speck or dot across the room on the wall, I’d have to wonder and worry:  “Is that a spider?”

I had what my hubby came to call “bug radar.”  If a spider was anywhere near, I’d know it.  And, freak out!

To lessen the tension of this horrific story about how I was tortured for decades with fear–let me tell a more pleasant spider anecdote!  When I first started dating my future hubby, I had an apartment.  He had an apartment.  Neither of us had cars.  One night, I was getting ready for bed, and found–horrors!!–a spider in my bathtub.  What to do?  I could not, no way, no how, just go to bed knowing a spider was around.  Nor could I touch it, or go near it.  I was distraught.  I called Michael.  That sweet man took a city bus across town (probably more than 1 bus) to come save me that night.  When he did that, I knew it was LOVE!   Then and there I decided to keep him, forever, and I am.  29 years and counting!!  🙂

So, anyway, everyone knew about my spider “thing” and some people laughed at me about it.  Like my mother.  We went camping and a spider was crawling up her leg at one point in one of those open-air-bathrooms in the woods.  She laughed, thinking how I would scream.  Yes, I would have.  I didn’t see or know any way out of this FEAR.  Yes, I knew it was unreasonable, spiders are tiny, I wasn’t, and yes, I could stomp the living daylights out of them, but that did not lessen the FEAR.  The panic response in my body.  The conscious mind wasn’t in charge of this thing.

Seal of the Society of Neuro-Linguistic Programming TM (your seal of the best).

Until 4 years ago.  I learned NLP.  And NLP can crush the daylights out of fear.  Quicker than you can imagine.  See, when you learn something, you’ve got a pattern running in you.  Mine was spider:  shriek!  spider:  recoil!  spider:  fear!  All three of those things together.  Well, NLP broke the pattern.  In about 15 minutes, conversationally, I learned something new, a new pattern.  A pattern called:  spider:  feel calm!  spider:  feel neutral!  spider:  feel clear-minded!  And that new pattern has been running for 4 years in me.  I’m not afraid anymore.

Of course, I was super skeptical—how could something that’s been such a terror to me just vanish?  Well, it did, and how I KNEW, how I came to believe was the next time I came face to face with a spider.  Nothing.  No reaction in my body.  I felt so amazingly free.  Calm gives me the clarity to see if the spider is actually a threat or not.  Some spiders ARE dangerous.  It’s miraculous, actually.  That’s what NLP is and does:  miracles on demand.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming ™.  Neuro meaning the neurology in your body, how you feel and function.  Linguistic meaning communications, spoken, unspoken, language, etc.  Programming to me means change.  Changing how you feel in your body via communication.  My spider fear was changed to my spider calm.  Neutral.  An absense of any negative feelings.  How wonderful.

NLP is miraculous on phobias.  Every kind.  It’s all just unconscious associations, stimulus response patterns which  get learned/installed.  I can help you learn something better, and more resourceful.  Because I’ve learned NLP.

I’ve worked with a wide variety of fears and anxieties with my clients, from claustrophobia, to fear of flying, to fear of public speaking, to fear of records stores, to fear of deep water, to fear of the wind, fear of heights, fear of spiders, and so on… with GREAT success.  NLP works!  Hypnosis works.  Together, they really, really work.

I declare 2010 the “free from fear” year.  I want to help people release fear.  Sometimes fear makes sense and is appropriate, but when it isn’t–let me help!  I’d love to.  And I know it works.  Every time I come face to face with a spider–a rare thing now–I know it.

I saw a spider on the floor of my bathroom about a month ago, sitting by the edge of some pants that I had thrown on the floor (don’t tell anybody), and it didn’t bother me at all.  Before, it would have been a FREAK OUT DELUXE that a spider might get into my clothes…here it was live and let live.  I didn’t care enough about the spider to even DO anything about it.  It was there for several days, sitting in the corner, and I noticed it calmly and ignored it. That’s freedom.

If you’ve got an irrational fear, think about this: How would you rather feel?  The tools I know can get you there, into that new feeling.  Rapido!

Warm Regards,
Connie
