It is said that pain relief is the number two easiest effect that can be instilled through hypnosis (number one being cessation of habits and phobias.) The sensation of pain may also be classified as a habit.
I looked for a definition of pain to include here, and found that pain may be beyond description, as the definitions went on, and on, and on. The following adapted outtake perhaps best states where a hypnotist can intervene.
With pain, either imprinting or conditioning for transmitting, is stamped into the pain pathways, creating a memory of the pain that replaces the normal memory: thus the feeling of reoccurring pain. Read the rest of this entry »
Hope is a representative of our dreams. Hope is what keeps us going when the going gets tough. We are subjects of hope, if we allow it. So, allow hope to rule your mind. Dream a little. Allow hope to infiltrate the many ways you wish for improvement and change. Have hope that you become the you that you wish to be.
According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, “Hope is a belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in one’s life. Hope is the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best.”
Spring is one of those times of year that we attempt to bring renewal into our lives, and change for the better. Perhaps we attempt to change old habits, or create new ones. Have you ever tried? Yes, but have you ever accomplished them? Have you ever stopped to wonder why, so often, you haven’t been able to make long term change?
Everyone wants to make change. I am really going to lose weight. I’m going to stop smoking. Oh my, I’m going to quit swearing. I’ll quit procrastinating, or stop doing that obnoxious thing I so often do. I’ll start exercising. I’ll be a better person. I’ll organize my life. I will find time for change!
We truly believe that we have the will power to succeed in instituting these changes into our lives. Maybe for the first few days it actually goes okay. So, why don’t these changes become permanent? Why can’t we seem to follow through? Why can’t I change my life? Read the rest of this entry »
Self-hypnosis is also a potent tool for change. Hypnosis, the act of relaxing and dwelling in the subconscious mind with positive self-suggestions, helps to bring change to the body and mind.
We are a society seeking change. How can we bring change without changing ourselves? We set out to do the right thing, and then we find ourselves falling into the same old patterns. We need to accept change as part of who we are right now, and to accept that we are now whom we have chosen to become.
First, we must look at the past and accept it. Then, we may see the present and accept it as the now… and live in it. By living in the now, we create our future. We become who we want to through change and reinforcement. Read the rest of this entry »
Spiritual mediums often work with spirit guides. Some work with only one guide, while others have several guides assisting them. I have many guides around me. They help move my psychic readings quickly and help get the answers and information people need.
The first of my spirit guides I knew about were Ishet, Ohkona, Nastar and Chadly. Ishet is a female guide of the Egyptian dream temples. She gives me balance, perspective, and understanding of the human mind. Okona is a male native American, who guides and guards me on my path. He gives me strength and perseverance. Nastar is my runner, and helps set up situations ahead of me, such as perhaps guiding a client to me, or even a simple task, like having a parking space available near the front door of a destination. And then there is Chadly, who is a nature guide. He comes through as an old, rough frontiersman, buckskins and all, he brings me humility and greater awareness in connecting me with all things natural. Read the rest of this entry »
I remember very distinctly how in health class my fifth grade teacher was teaching us about our senses. She mentioned seeing, hearing, feeling, taste and smell. Our five human senses. And then she said, “We used to have six senses, but we don’t have that anymore.” And that was the end of it.
We don’t have that anymore? How could I even explore it? Who else would teach me about my sixth sense? Did I have less sense? Was I not running on all six cylinders? How could this have happened? Shouldn’t they be teaching about all the senses of the mind and body? I would have felt suppressed had I only known, what I didn’t. Thank the Holy Spirit that eventually it came around for me to understand that the sixth sense is something that we use every day. Read the rest of this entry »
Séance is a term you don’t hear too much today. Anytime a group of people get together to contact the spirit world, you have what is known as a séance. For some reason this mediumship term has been moved into the background of our vocabulary. We now call these gatherings by a number of names, including message circles, message service, circle readings, group readings, or sittings.
Why the term faded away is difficult to say. The word’s usage declined between the 1920s and 50s, according to Google Books, but it is now beginning to have a resurgence. The word séance typically conjures the mental image of spiritualists sitting around a table in the dark, with candles, holding hands, with wispy apparitions of ghostly spirits floating above them.
