Every afternoon I listen to a thirty minute hypnotherapy CD.
I have to tell you my background (uber religious and close-minded) initially made it easy for me to reject the idea of using hypnosis. Not to mention, one thought of a Las Vegas act or a Hollywood film will send you running from such an experience.
The truth is most people are in a trance like state while watching TV.
Companies pay millions of dollars to advertise to viewers because they know they are in such a state and are very open to suggestions and images. Most people would deny that they are affected by commercials but if we look around, we see our society is fueled by the materialism they encourage.
Hypnotherapy is simply going into a trance like state for the purpose of offering new suggestions to the subconscious mind.
Truth be known, all hypnosis is self hypnosis. It’s very similar to meditation, in that you are in control the entire time. Hypnosis allows us to work directly with the information in the subconscious mind without interference from the conscious (or critical) mind.
Did you know, the subconscious mind is the source of all our beliefs, fears, anxieties, emotions, behaviors and habits?
The subconscious is what’s actually dictating our daily decisions. Unlike our conscious mind, it’s working all the time. So, in order to change behavior, we have to reprogram the subconscious mind. We often times don’t realize the experiences, emotions and issues residing there are blocking what we are trying so hard to create in our daily lives.
Don’t worry, we don’t have to reprogram every negative emotional experience to have a breakthrough in our lives.
The reason I chose hypnotherapy is because it is one of the few therapies that can get beyond the conscious mind. Going to talk to a therapist for example, can be helpful to work through a difficult time, but it is purely working with the conscious mind. In other words, what I can only talk about what I’m aware of. Often times the reason why people can be in therapy for years without seeing much change in their everyday lives is because they have not got to the root of the issues, which is housed in the subconscious mind.
Why I’m using it.
I have been studying the subconscious mind for several years and I know it’s the reason why we began to experience ease and success in our business and finances. It was just recently that I realized I could use the same concept in the area of conception. Hypnotherapy can be helpful in whatever you are wanting to create in your life.
The best place to get started is at Google.
You can search hypnotherapy books and CDs for just about anything. Want better relationships, more peace, abundance, better health? You will find plenty of choices and there will be one that pops out and grabs you – that’s the right one for you.
1. Buy a book on the subject. (I got the Mind-Body Fertility Connection by James Schwartz)
2. Buy a hypnosis CD and listen to it daily. (I got Birth Relaxation Kit)

What do you have to lose? :)

It’s all about remembering what’s important in life – creating purpose and passion, instead of just passing the time amassing stuff. p.s. If there are typos, spelling or grammar mistakes in this post don’t worry about. Those are the kinds of things I’ve worried about for FAR too long. It’s time to just get it out and who cares if it’s not perfect, it’s from the heart!
