Hypnotherapy has long been used to overcome fears, phobias, addictions and negative habits. I see these as surface issues that are symptoms of a deeper longing or unfulfilled need. Getting to the heart of where these symptoms originate can bring deeper and more lasting results that equal Transformation. Reclaiming personal power is essential to owning your life and taking the driver's seat as you pursue your dreams and goals.
2. Create a clear path to manifesting your power.
Our subconscious mind is designed to protect us and keep us safe as we learn about how the world works and our place in it. At an early age, the mind takes in information through experiences, good and bad. It creates a safety structure around these early events or traumas. As an adult, some of those protective devices and coping skills, developed in childhood, can sidetrack you from your true potential. The subconscious is still trying to keep you safe using outdated methods. Through hypnosis this old story can be rewritten and a new story put into place. You get to choose what this story is and how it will support you in manifesting the life that you want.
3. Connect deeply with your inner guidance system.
There are many times in our lives when we just don’t know what to do. We hit a wall. We wonder, “what now?” Other times, we feel that we just cannot trust ourselves. We make decisions that we regret, causing us to doubt ourselves. How would your life be different if you could trust yourself to rely on your intuition? Hypnotherapy is powerful for creating clarity. The clarity that hypnosis offers can be used to surface inner knowledge and your innate deep wisdom.
You come into this world with your own deep wisdom. Unfortunately, for many of us this connection to ourselves is weakened or lost by the time we are adults. Accessing your inner guide will bring you back into relationship with your deepest, truest self. Hypnosis helps you to once again tap into this trustworthy source of guidance.
4. Use past life regression to get the most out of the present.
We often feel like we are repeating aspects of our lives. Do you seem to always be dating a certain kind of person? Do you feel like you’re making the same kinds of mistakes over and over? Or, do you feel bored with work or relationships? Sometimes, this sense of repeating oneself, or getting nowhere, can be linked to past life experiences.
Unfinished business from past lives tangles us in old story, keeping us from moving forward towards our purpose. Unlearned lessons can keep us stuck repeating the negative cycles of the past, in our current lives. Guided regression via hypnotherapy assists you to find clarity by bringing those old patterns or stories to light. Understanding your past choices can give you insight into your present life and circumstances. This deep understanding of self will: empower you to make new choices; release the burdens of the past; and allow you to live your present life with newfound freedom.
5. Overcome negative habits and reclaim personal power.
Through our lives we develop self-care and self-soothing methods that assist us with handling the stresses of daily life. Some of these behaviors are positive. Positive examples of self-care include: meditation, walking, reading, seeking connection, etc. Other coping behaviors like: smoking, nail biting, picking at ourselves, over eating, using drugs or alcohol are unskilled attempts at “self-care”. Unskilled coping methods are usually developed early in life. Emotional stress is managed one way or another, so our subconscious will help to fill in the gaps in our lives with behaviors that seem supportive at the time. However, as we become adults, these behaviors endanger our health and wellbeing. These coping methods no longer actually serve us; instead, we become servants of what have possibly become addictions. Hypnotherapy can help shift power back to you in helping overcome these negative habits and addictions. Shifting power back to you comes through identifying the original intent of the subconscious, then creating new, healthy habits to replace the old, destructive ones. You don’t need to be a slaves to an outdated survival story.
You can reclaim the power of choice in your life.

As the seasons change and we head into this season of darkness, we are invited to retreat, pull our energy in and rest. We see that Nature is already doing this, the leaves have fallen, the sap moves into the roots of the trees and plants and the light fades. The movement and energy of that natural world slows down and goes within, underground. As a part of Nature, this is a season for you to also slow down, let go of extra activities, bring your energy home and cultivate your own growth.
As we embrace this time of year we allow ourselves, we give ourselves permission to seek out what is cheery, comfortable and nourishing. Each of us knows how to do this, how to bring our own light into this sweet cozy time. Allowing your body to rest, your heart to rest, your mind to settle into contemplation.
As we surrender to the seasons we are supported by their bounty, the root vegetables that grow in the darkness are ready to nourish our bodies, all foods that are warming and hearty prepare us for the season to come. Our bodies soften and become more comfortable, fire becomes a regular part of our lives, lighting the dark and warming our souls.
As we draw ourselves in we have the opportunity to create inner spaciousness through meditation and stillness. In the dark is the potential of all things. Our new growth is the potential of a seed in this quietness. Now is the time for you to cultivate that seed, keeping it warm, hidden and secret. In this space new things will be born, all new life emerges from the darkness. Embrace this season as a gift, allowing it to cultivate in you, stillness, patience and possibility.
