The Magic of Positive Energy

Fresh, healthy, new life!

Fresh, healthy, new life!

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

I invite you to check out this tree!  I took this photo today, it’s of the tree right outside my office window.  I look at it every day and I admire it’s lush, fresh, new and unfurling green leaves.  New life!  Spring time to get blooming!  It’s beautiful.

These trees outside my window are my visual aides to story-telling as I engage in what is known as Ericksonian Hypnosis.  Part of the hypnosis work I do:  I tell stories, use metaphors, imagery, indirect language to suggest direct change.  I love nature imagery.  As I work with hypnosis clients, I often talk about trees–this tree outside my window in particular.  I emphasize how natural change is for trees, how easy it is to let go of that which is no longer needed, how easy to embrace fresh new healthy life, the long-haul surviver and thriver qualities of trees.  They grow more beautiful and stronger every day.  As I tell these stories to my clients in trance, I am also focusing energy on the trees outside my window, and lavishing them as well with this “grow healthy” patter.

Guess what!?  It works!  This tree is evidence of thriving!  This tree is amazingly greener, more alive and blooming than any of the other trees (of the same kind) that surround my office building.

Here is precisely what those other trees look like.  More like winter trees.  Spring has not sprung inside this tree yet.

Same day, same kind of tree, same area.

Same day, same kind of tree, same area.

That’s right!  Kind of gray, kind of barren.  What do you think?  Could the focused waves of positive and healing energy emanating from my office and directed at the nearest tree time and time again really be affecting it and causing it to grow and bloom more powerfully than the other nearby trees?  It looks that way to me.  🙂  And it reminds me of a study I read, about the power of emotion to affect water and crystals.  It’s called “The Hidden Messages in Water” by Masaru Emoto.

I KNOW that with my clients healing happens in my office daily, and new fresh possibilities are installed as I tell stories about and I focus positive energy on my trees.  I just never suspected that the trees themselves would benefit.

What do you think?  Why is “my” tree thriving more than any other at the Alderwood Building?  Look at these pics, taken today, and decide for yourself!  🙂

Warm Regards,
Connie

Hypnotic Power Speak in Oregon

Connie's giving a talk to the OHA.

Hi, Hypno-Friends!

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!

Warm Regards,
Connie

It’s cold and flu season (but not for me!)

Hi, guys!  Who watches television?  (Raising my own hand, but only half way.)  🙂  I hardly watch at all any more, because the quality of “what’s on” is going down, down, down, and my time for leisure is going down as well.  That’s a good thing, but that’s also another topic.  This one is:

Dramatic pause.  Negative suggestions.

Watching TV this past week, I can’t help but notice the BOMBARDMENT of ads right now, commercials for cold & flu medicines and paraphernalia.  Here’s the message:  “It’s cold and flu season.”  and that means “You’re going to get sick., you can expect to get sick.”  I also notice that the stores are stocking the aisles with cold and flu medicines and products–prominent and in-your-face, on the end caps and special displays, with alarming banners warning that cold and flu season is here!  Same message:  “It’s time for you to get sick now!  You’re going to get sick now.”  It’s not a warning, per se, it’s a directive!  It’s a negative suggestion.  And our minds seem quite willing to embrace it without question!

Michael has a story he likes.  He was in a work training with a woman.  She told this story:  She knew that every year she would have one bout of illness per cold and flu season, one only.  The reason she’d only have one was because she’d prepare for it, and take massive doses of vitamins.  She knew that she’d only get sick once!  Her vitamins would protect her from further illness!  And yes, it did transpire that she’d only get sick once per winter/season.  BUT…one winter she got so busy and forgot to prepare with her vitamins, didn’t think about it at all.  Guess what?  She didn’t get sick that winter.  Not once.  Not at all.  She forgot to get sick!!

Here’s a personal story about my personal experiences.  This is NOT medical advice, because…I’m not medical.  I’m a hypnotist.  And here’s one positive side effect I enjoy from my hypnosis.  Your mileage may vary.

I don’t get sick, either.  Ever.  Because I’ve decided not to.  I USED to get sick, just like everyone else.  Two major colds a year.  At LEAST two.  Until I discovered hypnosis and how the mind processes ideas and suggestions three+ years ago.  Three years, and I haven’t been sick.  Not a sniffle.  I did have food poisoning for one day (some bad shrimp on a Vegas buffet), but it ended quite quickly.  I don’t get sick because my unconscious mind rejects the idea, and does what it needs to do to make sure I stay well–strengthening my immune system, or whatever it wants to do.  I can happily trust my unconscious to keep me well, and ignore those nitty gritty details as well.  I don’t care how.  I just know it’s in place.  Wellness.  I can hang around sick people, avoid hand sanitizer, ignore those commercials and product displays, no flu shot for me, and stay well.  Three years and counting…

Hypnosis is incredibly powerful.  And our understanding is just a miniscule slice of that giant cake.  There’s so much more to know and learn.  The unconscious mind knows how to keep us healthy.  I talk to the mind in ways it likes, to do just that!

What do you suppose would happen if you decided to stay well this winter?

Warm Regards,
Connie
