Finding Your Rhythm

Finding Your Rhythm

Nature has a really deep and resilient intelligence, with seasons and cycles, steadiness, and a keen ability to dance to the beat of its own rhythm - with exquisite timing. Each person's body has its own natural  and unique rhythms as well. Do you know yours? Many health challenges can occur when a person gets out of sync with their own rhythm, trying to push the river. When you are in the flow, in your rhythm, life becomes more effortless. With hypnotherapy sessions, you can answer your own questions, and discover and honor your own unique rhythm. 

Altered States of Consciousness

Altered States of Consciousness

Ever find yourself fraught with lack of clarity, seeking solutions to questions that feel out of reach? Then suddenly the answer appears out of nowhere, while you're thinking of nothing specific. 
This is because unforeseen answers and solutions tend to surface when you’re zoning out. Throughout history humans have experienced moments of insight through natural yet altered states, and now scientists are capable of isolating these moments of clarity. The vast majority of thoughts circling in our brains happen below our conscious awareness - even though our brains are processing them, we are not aware. Those who understand brain waves can access creative, problem solving space time and time again – by choice.

Field of Unity

Field of Unity

Many people are undergoing significant changes in their lives and feeling the worry or uncertainty of it all. Likewise, the collective unrest is palpable. Our world is experiencing huge changes and can feel very polarized. Old forms dissolve and new ones form in their place. Meanwhile, it can feel as though we have one foot in the old and the other in the new, while being stretched in between.  

Times of great change also offer incredible growth – as individuals, as families, as communities, and beyond. But first we must transcend fear and embrace the sanctity and perfection of our differences. Fear cannot exist in the energies of love and gratitude - they are mutually exclusive.

Mental Law of Effect

Mental Law of Effect

We are naturally equipped with many great things, including a mind and choices, and yet many people don't feel empowered to create significant, desirable change and aren't taught how to effectively use their inner resources. The following Mental Laws of Effect are helpful concepts in re-programming your own mind so that you can bring about the changes that you desire and choose the quality of your life experience.

Aligning Mind and Body

Aligning Mind and Body

Aligning your mind via the body is possible in many ways. Sometimes it is helpful to reverse engineer the process of change by first changing the body, and then letting the body’s intelligence influence the mind. Physical movement coupled with the right intention will inherently affect the subconscious level of awareness, which in turn helps our moods, emotions, thoughts, beliefs and life experiences. 

The Mind Leads the Body – and The Body Leads the Mind.

Align with Values

Align with Values

Does your life reflect your deepest core values? Spring beams new life as days gets longer and the natural world around us begins to awaken from its winter slumber. It is time for new beginnings and for visioning the future. In spring people are more active and it's also a good time to do a complete life assessment in order to ascertain whether your life reflects your deepest core values. Taking an assessment of your life can bring you closer to joyfully thriving in life instead of simply surviving it.  If you are not happily and peacefully living joyful exuberance in a fulfilling and satisfying way, then identifying your values and weighing them against your life can help you begin to thrive.

Rules of the Mind

Rules of the Mind

Your subconscious level of awareness is continuously recording and storing. Therefore, everything in your environment is potentially programming your subconscious mind, and always has been. This can be limiting or it can be empowering. The Rules of the Mind are helpful concepts in re-programming your own mind so that you can choose the quality of your life experience. They are an adaptation of a handout provided at The Hypnotherapy Academy of America located in Albuquerque, NM, and are credited to the original author and late hypnotherapist, Gil Boyne. 

The Wisdom of the Heart

The Wisdom of the Heart

Indeed without the phenomenal physiological functions of the heart, our bodies wouldn’t be alive. While some may still assert that “The heart is just an organ that pumps blood,” the heart has many other wonders not commonly known. This article covers some recent research on the heart and how its unseen power plays an remarkable role in our lives. Are you courageous enough to let the wisdom of your heart guide you?

Force of Habit

Force of Habit

Often a New Year is marked by new resolutions and intentions. Revamping resolutions and intentions often involve adjusting our habits. Both success and failure at almost any endeavor are largely the results of habit. A habit can be a powerful force, driving one into automatic, almost involuntary practices as a result of repetition. This article discusses the structure of habit and a process for positive change. Once you understand the component parts of any habit, you can fiddle with its parts and arrive at your goals more easily.
