When You Create… Archives
You can Imagine and Visualize, right ? Most all of us can -
For Hypnotherapy and or Hypnosis to be affective, there must be some Imagery and or Visualization taking place in your mind. Visualization is the seeing of an activity in the mind but Imagery is experiencing the activity in the mind with all, most or some of the senses involved – actually doing it, as if being part of it.
Imagery is a right brain activity which means it is a creative process verses the left brain which is the analytical side. Imagery is a flexible approach that strengthens the Nero Pathways, the brain responders, so by using Guided Imagery one can practice in the mind seeing and doing what one wants to be, change or accomplished.
Here is an example of a Guided Imagery used during Hypnotherapy:
First, sit in a comfortable position and start to get relaxed by taking three deep long breaths and then three more, keep focusing on your breathing, until you feel more relaxed. Continue breathing in through your nose and out through your mouth, each breath brings peace and calm as you breathe out old used energy that you no longer need.
Now, with your eyes closed, start to visualize and or imagine in your mind that you have arrived at your favorite place in the world. This could be any place that is safe, calm, relaxing and beautiful – you decide where it is – or create it now.
It could be a place you have been before or a place that you want to visit or where you are right now – you decide.
Now, be there as you begin to feel the breeze, the air, as you smell the smells and hear all of the sounds around you.
What colors do you see, who is there with you, what animals or beings do you see or are you alone? – you decide.
What does the ground feel like, the air the water the trees, are there any trees, mountains, valleys or are you inside?
Now, what do you feel – the positive feelings inside your body? Calm, relaxed, happy, free, joyous, peaceful, creative, focused, powerful, out of your body…
Keep feeling the positive aspects while staying in this place – enjoy this brief time of solitude as your continue to be good to yourself.
Be aware of your breathing as you continue to take deep long breaths into you belly and exhale slowly as your mind continues to drift.
Enjoy this time as long as you possibly can with each deliberate, slow wonderful and powerful breath to the next one (take time here to just sit and become even more relaxed as you let your mind wonder from one wonderful thought to the next).
Continue to be in this place of peace and harmony as you begin to see and know that you can make anything happen that you wish, you are in control here and you can work on anything that you would like to change for the better, right now.
See what it is that you have been wanting to change, what is it that you desire to make better in your life, right now ? See yourself doing it and having the things that you know you deserve and allow yourself to have these wonderful things that you have been wanting and wishing for. See yourself doing these things and having these things and enjoying the benefits of these positive changes that you desire.
Feel the change and allow the changes to continue to happen as you thank yourself for giving this opportunity a chance to happen so quickly – a chance to have those things that you know are yours to enjoy. They have been there inside you just waiting to be release and now, you are allowing them to happen and be real.
Alright, as you see how wonderful you are, you also know how powerful and how in control you have the ability to be – Now, as you continue to deep breath, start to bring your awareness back to this place where you are in your body at this time and bring yourself here and now back to the present.
Begin to open your eyes and feel your body where you are and count up from 0 to 5 – 0,1,2,3,4, and 5 eyes open wide awake. 1,2,3,4,5 eyes open wide awake. Now, continue to enjoy this peace and calm as you go through your day and remember that you are the one that allows things to happen in your life the way that you wish them to be. So, wish for great wonderful things to happen, always -

Did you say, “I am” – meaning You, yourself ? I do hope so, You are The Most Important person in your own Life, You really are, and the more you are there for yourself, the Better you can be there for those other important people in your Life.
One of the biggest concerns that I hear from some of my clients and others is that they are too busy to even make time, to take more time for themselves. Many people are overwhelmed with the activities in their life but we have to remember that, these activities are from our own creation – we had a lot to do with making them happen. We had the power to create them, therefore, we have the power to make them easier to deal with.
So, what do you think? Is it time to take your power back from those activities so, you can have more control over how they happen in our Life?
Maybe, so – you are the one that does know the answers to all of your questions, they are there within you and that is why I want you to become Your own Most Important Person so, you can Release more Stress to find those answers and be able to hear them more consistently.
In my last blog post, I talked about the Movie, Avatar and how we can create our own type of Pandora feeling right Here on Earth - it is a long post (which you can read in two parts) but it ended with a simple suggestion about how to take that first step in taking more time for yourself. It is something that we do already and have been doing since, birth – but not all of us do it in the best way. It is breathing and I posted my “Breathing Better” video to help and motivate you to do that.
Here is the link to that post: click Here and I hope, if you have not already – that you watch the video to take the first steps in taking more time for yourself. Then, after you get better at breathing – watch the next video, “Hypnosis By the Sea” posted below for your next step in becoming Your own Most Important Person.
It is a video showing you how to do Self-Hypnosis – it is very simple and easy to do and can be done anywhere, where you can create a quiet space for yourself – so, just click Here…
Since, I Love the Sea – I took advantage of the beautiful serenity that it has to offer by giving you a place, through this video, to come back to practice and also, enjoy – but remember…
You don’t have to be by the Sea – to be more free.
I do believe, do you, That it is Time to be Your Own M.I.P. -

My next follow up post, will have more steps to keep you moving in the right direction...
It will be about Sleeping Better with Motivative Suggestions to help You get to Sleep faster and Sleep through out the night. Sleeping Better and working on your issues through your Dreams can Release even more Stress so, you can be Better at being Your own M.I.P -
On the Place we call Home – Earth, also, known as Gaia, another name for Earth that comes from Greek mythology, referring to the Earth Goddess. Gaia, pronounced “Guy – uh” a beautiful name for this wonderful Planet that we get to inhabit. It is a Planet like no other (that we know of, at this time) and if you have been to one that is more amazing – Please, do let me know about it.
We are so fortunate to be here to have this place to live and it’s really great to be connecting with more and more like-minded people who share the same realization.
As humans, we get to experience the many different opportunities our Planet offers us, and at the same time, have been given the abilities to change our experiences to the better.
Right now, I feel, see, sense and know that we are living in a time of Great Change and true discovery. It is a time for many who have either been depressed, unhappy, angry, sad, fearful or even lost to realize and know their purpose in Life. When we allow ourselves to have more peace and calm, it enables a better connect with our true self and that’s when change happens. As these new changes become part of your everyday life, it can start to make you realize what is missing.
The many great changes taking place have created an awakening and with the recent effect that the Movie, Avatar has had – the longing for inner peace and calm is even more evident.
This amazing movie, creatively produced with such symbolic wisdom, shows that even though it takes place in the future where overgrown cat like natives live in heightened states of spiritual harmony, on Planet Pandora - it really is not much different than our own Planet. (figuratively speaking, that is)
Through the journey of the characters in this movie, the audience has gotten a glimpse of what more peace, calm and serenity looks and feels like and many are craving more. They great thing is that most all of us already have the ability within ourselves to make this happen and after seeing this movie, I couldn’t stop thinking about how we really can create our own type of Pandora, right here on Earth…
Then, what motivated me more to write about this, was a recent connection with a new like-minded Friend on Facebook who had sent out a very interesting note. The information in her note talked about the deep symbolism in this movie and we chatted about how we both related to it so well. Even though she had received this information from another Friend, she was so excited to be sharing it since, it had helped her understand her own thoughts even better and I am so glad she did.
The information in the note, was written by Ada Monola, and she talked about “the many hidden messages… or maybe not so hidden for people who are aware…” then she shared her opinion about what she saw in these hidden messages.
The rest of this information could be a spoiler for those who have not seen this movie, but who has not seen this wonderful film, yet ?
I was able to see most of the same messages but what surprised me, was that I was not aware of something that is now, so obvious. When she talked about the Heroes in the Movie, it immediately got my attention and what I read next, almost left me breathless. She said, “The heroes are set in hypnosis mode in order to connect with their avatars… we meditate, we ‘put in sleep’ our vehicle (the body) so we can connect with the avatar within us (our Soul, who is Divine – an avatar -)”
Wow, I thought – what an amazing way to describe the most important symbolic message of this whole movie and in such a beautiful way !!! Then, I thought – of course hypnosis…that is exactly what they had used and how did I not see it, something I know so well.
That is how great this movie is – the peace and harmony on Pandora contrasted with the cruel reality of life is so captivating that it has overloaded those so deeply effected. And it seems, many are still trying to figure out what they are feeling about it.
Have you heard about the avatar effect, (click here to read more) also, know as the avatar blues. It is a type of post depression from the deep feelings felt about this movie and it is causing many to have a hard time with their reality ?
Notice, I said, their reality – since, we have the ability within to change our own reality for the better. This ability is there and it is just waiting to be released and Hypnotherapy is one of the best ways to make this happen.
Hypnosis is just a deepened state of relaxation that occurs naturally when your mind is being overloaded with message units, much like watching a movie. The guided imagery and visualization that send the message units offer suggestions to slow your breathing and that enables more stress release, much like watching a movie.
During a session you are still conscious but the messages units that distract the conscious part of the mind cause your thoughts to go deeper. These deepening thoughts that are relaxing you, are also opening up the subconscious part of your mind more and that is where you decide which suggestions to believe or not believe. This is much like the effect that Avatar has had but the most very important difference is that during a Hypnotherapy session, only Positive suggestions are used.
So, it seems the positive suggestions taken from this movie created a healthy desire for more, which is great, but many of those, so deeply affected, are not aware of how to experience this again. Also, their negative thoughts might have them thinking that they had nothing to do with what they had felt since, it occurred watching a fictitious movie of make-believe.
I can’t speak for all of the people going through this but I do know that most all of us have the ability to create more peace, calm and serenity in our lives. It might not be like the Planet Pandora, in the Movie Avatar, but you can get to that place to release more stress to find your own peace and calm within. When your mind becomes more quiet, you are able to hear better what your soul has to offer and that is what allows you to know your passions.
Many people I have been connecting with are happily living their Passions with much peace and serenity and some of the others are beginning to discover this even more. These are the people who know – you gotta do what it takes, to get to where you want to be and this gives me much hope that more people are understanding that, if you really want something – you have to be willing to do the work to get it.
And for those who are not quite ready, yet – that is O.K. too, everybody finds their own way to deal with change. I love it when people come to me and I get to motivate them further but ultimately, they are the ones who have to really want it.
So, if you are searching for some positive things that might be missing in your life – you want them and also, know there will be some work to do, then, it is a good idea to find other ways to release more stress - and it’s as simple as Breathing…
This is the easy work to get your going in the right direction – learning how to Breath Better can make Your whole Life Better and the link below, Breath Better Now, will take you to a Simple Video that will motivate your further.
My next blog posting will give you more ways to continue to go within by learning Simple Self-Hypnosis Techniques - Here is the link to the next posting: http://www.hypnovator.com/who-is-the-most-important-person-in-your-life/Click Here
More Motivation to You All –
A Better You !!!
Did you make any Resolutions this Year ? Did you know that most people who make New Year’s Resolutions, do not follow through with them and I just read in a recent article that “on average, 85 % of people that make them, do not keep them.”
First of all, I think it is really great if you did make some Resolutions – since, that means, you do know that you would like some type of changes to occur in your life and hopefully, they are Positive ones. It is a start, even if you are not following through with them as planned or having a hard time making them happen, at all.
Now, if your Resolutions are happening smoothly then, Here’s more Motivation to You – along with a reminder to always have some good “Mind tools” for those days when old ways of thinking could come back to trigger old behavior. “Mind tools” (a term that I think, I just made up while writing this) are motivative thinking anchors that reinforce new changes and they are personalized to fit the issues of each Client that I work with. Also, the anchors given help in grounding new positive thoughts (like a boat anchor) to new positive actions, reactions and behaviors.
Change is always happening in our Lives and since, most all changes, that we would like to change, happen in our subconscious, that is why Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy works so well and quickly. Not only, does it get to that subconscious level where old ways of thinking, feeling and reacting changes for the better – it also, reinforces changes through the personalized repetition, suggestions and visualization that is related to those issues being worked on.
Now, the not so easy part is finding those changes and then, making them happen while allowing them to become part of everyday life and this is why I absolutely Love being a Hypnotherapist – I get to be part of this amazing transformation that is being created as my clients quickly change for the better.
Change is good and through our own experiences most all of us have probably had and seen some pretty impactful changes happen during this past decade. I know, I have and most everyone I know, has had some real good changes, along with some bad ones and then, there are others that are just confused with the many people having such difficulties while, at the same time, others are thriving by doing the best they ever have.
These extreme contrasts are causing us to become even more aware of what others are going through and the difference in opinions are surely being expressed. Some of which are: “We are just going through another recession that will past soon” along with, “This is the worst economy since, the great depression” then, there are others that are saying “What recession?”
Does it seems to be all relative then and what about the Law of Attraction that says, “What we focus on happens Most” ? Well, what ever it is that we are going through, we will get through it, as we always have and there is no doubt that yes, there really is something going on out there and things are forever and always changing.
So, through all of these changes, what I am sensing about this new decade is that the theme is already becoming, not about me, I or you but about We – We as a whole. We have to continue to do things together and with Social media and sites like Facebook we have already been doing this for quite some time and we are getting more and more comfortable with sharing, commenting and expressing our feelings.
As more and more like minded people are connecting and we continue to comment, share and express ourselves in a Positive respectful way, not only does our own life continue to change for the better but those that engage with us, change for the better, as well.
Since, jumping right in, to embrace Social Media, as many others did, through Facebook, this whole past year ended up being a Social Media Networking training camp for me and it has been amazing. How great is it that, we get the opportunity to be part of such a wonderful new way to connect with people all over the world where our lives can literally be changed in an instant.
Just think about the many ways your Life has changed for the better through Social Media and think about those people that helped you to change and also, those you helped to change in the process.
Through this past year, that is what I have focused on most – the importance of embracing the changes that are happening in your Life, and what I have discovered is that, I can not do it all my own. So, that is why I am now taking Social Media to the next level by really understanding how important it is to have a special networking group of friends – like minded people to rely on and get support and motivation from.
First, I found how this worked on a large scale through Facebook and now, I am learning how it can work on a smaller scale with what is being called a “tribe”. An old term that is being used to describe a new type of online syndication tribe and the leader of this new tribe that I am involved in is Kimberly Castleberry and she explains it all very well at this link, right here with more information here -
Also, I am having a great time getting to know some of the others that have joined our tribe and I am excited to share how they are making changes happen through the work they are doing, as well. These are them, my new tribe buddies doing really great things so, you can just click on their names to see what they are doing for the Better: Theresa Moss – doing some real Creative Marketing; Cindy Springsteen – is a Long Island Parenting Teen’s Examiner, very interesting; David Merrill, helping keep the Blues at Bay & some Powerful Online Marketing Tips; Kellie Frazier – Great Coaching through Connecting; Irene Sharon Hodes, the Foodie with a full appetite of Humor; Jacqueline Gates – Living Life Abundantly and helping others to know how, as well; Eugene Guilbault – blogging about the start of the New Year & what others are doing; Tracey Keefer - offering Tips for your MLM and Susan Davis – Living Life Full Out & sharing it with You -

Charter one, Page 11:
“YOU ARE NOT YOUR MIND”
The Greatest Obstacle to Enlightenment…
“A beggar had been sitting by the side of a road for over thirty years. One day a stranger walked by. “Spare some Change?” mumbled the beggar, mechanically holding out his old baseball cap. “I have nothing to give you”, said stranger. Then he asked: “What’s that you are sitting on?”, “Nothing”, replied the beggar. “Just an old box. I have been sitting on it for as long as I can remember.” “Ever looked inside, asked the stranger. “No, said the beggar. “What’s the point? There’s nothing in there.
Have a look inside, insisted the stranger. The beggar managed to pry open the lid. With astonishment, disbelief and elation, he saw that the box was filled with gold.
Taken straight from the book, is just one of the many powerfully enlightening and wonderful examples from:
The Power of Now
This parable, is telling you to look inside to see your own gold that has been there waiting for you to discover.
The stranger is the one telling the story who has nothing to give you but to tell you to look inside.
The beggar is You…
“Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great wealth. They are looking outside for scrapes of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer.”
Practice being in the Now,
Go Explore the Beauty, Peace, Joy and Exciting Wonderfulness of your own Personal Creativity…
It is there, yes, already there in You waiting to be Uncovered, Released and Accentuated as you discover the Amazing Possibilities that will become your truth.
