While I drove home yesterday, I was listening to the news. It was very negative. I became aware that I was clenching the wheel and my body was tightening. So, I immediately changed the channel to classical music and took a deep breath. My entire body relaxed. Ah, relief.
I caught myself as I was getting hooked into the collective thought-body of fear. Unfortunately, fear is the predominant energy of this shared creation. And, fear causes suffering. Since the election, I have noticed fear snowballing in our country. While it is easy to get seduced into this powerful cesspool, with a little awareness, it’s also just as easy to bypass the invitation. Awareness is the key.
Your thoughts count. When you are in your heart, you send out loving thoughts to the planet. But, when you are caught in fear, you add to the collective planetary snowball of fear.
Another practice I work on embracing is reminding myself that while I do not have to like what’s going on, it’s not my job to judge it. Even though I’m not always successful, I’m getting better with practice. I find myself clenching whenever I judge someone or something. Just knowing that my thoughts count and either add to global fear or global peace motivates me to choose peace.
I invite you to join me….

This is one of the first questions I hear from folks when I tell them I do hypnosis. They get this scared, far-away look in their eyes, and then…out it comes. It always makes me chuckle. We’re so media programmed.
Not only will you not cluck like a chicken, you will most likely remember everything. You see, hypnosis is really just deep relaxation. It’s a very pleasant state, kind of like how you feel as you’re drifting off to sleep. When the conscious mind is deeply relaxed, the subconscious mind comes forward. It is the subconscious mind we want to access in hypnosis because the subconscious drives the bus. If that were not true, you could simply make up your mind to quit an addictive habit and it would be a done deal. But, we all know how effective that is, right? Remember what happened to your New Year’s Resolution?
People engage in hypnosis for a myriad of reasons because it gets to the heart of the matter: the cause. And when we access the heart, we bring in love and compassion. This approach neutralizes the original trigger, which gives you a peace that you may never have felt before. Truly liberating.
Hypnosis is a companion to EFT. EFT paves the way by getting you comfortable with uncomfortable emotions. This opens the heart with a readiness for hypnosis. They’re a great team!
