Is it Magic?

I always tell my clients that hypnosis is not a magic wand. I can’t “fix” someone who is 50 pounds overweight even though I can make the process of losing that weight easier.  In the case of weight management, hypnosis focuses on the thinking about food; reducing cravings and eating for health.

I recently read somewhere that hypnosis can be a magic wand in the sense that the changes in the subconscious mind begin to happen quickly. However, the analogy I like best is that hypnosis and the process of hypnotherapy is more like a snow ball rolling down hill and picking up more snow as it goes. Hypnotherapy is a cumulative process which becomes more and more effective with multiple sessions and frequent listening to the recordings that I make during a session.

I very often recommend, at least, three sessions in order to get significant results.  At our free consultation I will explain the process more fully.  Call me at 925-368-8398 to schedule.

Have a great day!

Are You Reaching Your Goals?

It is almost the end of the year.  How are you doing towards accomplishing your 2016 goals?

For some of you, my question is exciting.  You are doing great!  You have already met your goals for the year!  Or, perhaps, you are close and you know that a year end push will get you over the top!

For others, however, I know that not making your goals again is painful to think about.  You have worked  hard but things have not come together as you thought.  You are frustrated.  You may be looking at your  circumstances and looking for somewhere to place the blame.  Is it your timing?  The economy?  Your  location?

Have you also looked inside?  While external factors certainly do play a part in our success, very often,  our thinking plays an even bigger part.  Ask yourself the following questions:

What was I afraid to try?

How did I procrastinate?

Was I open to new ideas?

What do I believe I can’t do?

Your answers to those questions will help you examine those thoughts, habits and fears that stand in your way.  Many of those are the deep-seated programming of your subconscious mind.   You are not even consciously aware of all of them.

Hypnosis can help discover and release the negative thoughts.  It is a way to take more control of what you are thinking and doing as a result of all those subsconscious thoughts.  Deep relaxation and visualization of the possibilities can be extremely helpful in moving you forward.

I love to help people move in the direction of their goals and release the frustration of feeling stuck.  I do that through hypnotherapy alone or my new Envision Success program that combines the accountability of coaching with the powerful visualization techniques of hypnosis.  If you are feeling stuck and want to take more control of your thinking, call me for a free consultation at 925-368-8398 or e-mail info@pathwayhypnotherapy.com

Here’s to your success!

Alternative thoughts

Alternative Thoughts

We have heard a lot about “alternative facts” lately but you also may be experiencing  alternative thoughts.  Don’t worry, this post is not about politics, but about the number and kinds of thoughts we may have that are preventing us from reaching our goals.

What are your goals for 2017?

To find the love of your life?

To have the best year ever in your business?

To get that promotion?

Sometimes when we think about our goals, the first thing that comes to mind is why we believe that they may be difficult or impossible to achieve.

Thoughts such as the following  come up and, sometimes, stop us in our tracks:

I am not smart enough

I don’t have enough will power

I am too shy

If we buy into these thoughts and we give up on our goals, they then become the reason or, more likely, the excuse for not being more successful.

Often these thoughts are deeply ingrained.  Our habits of thinking have turned into beliefs about ouselves.   Hypnosis can help change and release those negative beliefs.  The relaxed state of mind of hypnosis triggers the imagination and allows us to release negative patterns and to develop positive thoughts and gain more clarity about the truth of our capabilities.
