Success versus Failure

So many times I have clients as me if there is a guarentee with my hypnosis.  I have thought about this long and hard and I have tried it with both.  What I have found is that a guarantee actually works against the client in the end.  A guarentee can actually provide the client with a reason to not be sucessful because they can get their money back or start all over again.  For this reason their is no guarentee with hypnosis.  The other factor is that the majority of the success is in the clients hands and not the hypnotist no matter what some may tell you. 

Mystically yours,

Self Hypnosis vs Guided Meditation

So many times I hear people say I practiced meditation but all I did was go to sleep or found it to be a waste of time.  Lets be honest here - most people do not reach nirvana or an enlightened state during meditation unless they have spent years doing it and at some point they were probably forced to do it.  I remember during my martial arts training we started every class and lesson with 15 minutes of meditation.  Now let me be honest ceremony or not this time I would have never taken on my own if I was not told I had to do it prior to learning something new that I wanted to learn.  Because of all of this time spend sitting and meditating though I was able to achieve a floating state where it felt like my body was actually floating off the ground.  This also shocked me because I remember doing a little freaking out and breaking the state to feel if I was still sitting on the floor.  So you want to learn self hypnosis and you want to learn how to relax.  I believe the the biggest problem with someone learning to meditate or self hypno is that they get lost.  For that reason I really suggest that one learns a couple guided meditations and learns some things that will assist them in discovering the answers and truths.  I like to use the bio-feedback device with them so they can actually hear themselves relax and it assists them in going deep.  Then I instruct them on timeline or some other tool that will allow them to travel and get rid of old issues and create new positive traits.  After all the purpose of the trip is to grow and accomplish more than falling asleep.  So the next time you think about teaching self-hypnosis how about teaching guided imagery and teach your clients how to meditate with a purpose.  If you need a bio-feedback device just give me a shout and I can provide you one really cheap.  You can also include them in your program for your clients. Just a couple thoughts from a company that cares.
