Hypnosis has been defined a state of focused attention and receptiveness. It is a naturally occurring state which we enter many times throughout the day. The conscious mind containing all of our busy thoughts enters a relaxed, neutral state. The subconscious mind containing all of our emotions and beliefs becomes very receptive to suggestion. The positive images, thoughts and feelings we experience during hypnosis become embedded in our mind enabling us to manifest the positive changes easily.
Gerri Levitas -
Hypnosis feels extraordinarily relaxing, as if you have just had a wonderful sleep. Some people experience a pleasant heaviness while others may feel light and tingly. Still many people do not experience any changes at all. The truth is that it doesn’t make a difference; we are all individuals and there is no right or wrong way to experience hypnosis. You will emerge from the hypnosis feeling wonderfully relaxed and refreshed.
What Does Hypnosis Feel Like?
Hypnosis is effective in helping people make positive and lasting changes. Hypnotic suggestions, or affirmations, are received and accepted by the subconscious mind by bypassing the critical factor of the conscious mind. You will notice the shifts in thought and behavior easily –- without conscious effort on your part.
Can Everyone be Hypnotized?
Most people can easily be hypnotized. The ability to enter a state of hypnosis can be increased with practice. The most important criteria is the desire to make the intended changes.
What are affirmations? Simply put, an affirmation is a statement of positive intention. Affirmations are very powerful when spoken aloud. They enter our realm of consciousness and begin the process of shifting away from the negative and towards the positive. When repeated frequently, affirmations can flow into our subconscious mind and create an even more powerful effect.
Here are some commonly stated affirmations that you may have heard:
Here’s a tip to create an affirmation that is personal and powerful. State the affirmation in the present tense, and use only positive words. Take a moment and write down the affirmation you wish to focus on. Then, think of it often, when at work and when at home. Trust the power of your mind. You will find that you will begin to feel more positive and more energized.
When do you know it’s time to set boundaries? When you feel overwhelmed, when it’s hard to say no, and when you have LESS of what you want in life, instead of MORE!
Why set boundaries?
Our boundaries define ourselves and make us feel safe – in body and in spirit. When our boundaries are violated, either intentionally or unintentionally, we may feel a host of emotions – including confusion, anger, numbness, and hurt. When we set healthy boundaries, we increase our own sense of self respect – and we enable others around us to treat us with respect.
It's your RIGHT to have health boundaries!
It is your right to determine the limits of what is acceptable to you and where you need to draw the line with inappropriate or unacceptable words and/or behavior. Indeed, it is your BIRTHRIGHT. Setting healthy boundaries will allow you to live with a feeling of peace, safety and security.
