Anxiety is used like the word Kleenex is for a tissue, or Google is used to refer to looking something up on the internet. Hypnotists do not treat anxiety - in fact they don’t diagnose or treat anything - that is for a licensed psychologist or doctor to do.

  Two weeks ago my blog was on opioids. In response someone sent me a copy of a recent survey from the CDC - the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. They studied 1.3 million non-cancer patients. Here’s what they found:

Today I’m talking about the difference between shame and guilt. These are two emotions that people confuse and it is critical to understand the difference. Shame says, “I am bad.” It’s a focus on the self and it corrodes that part of us that believes we can change. Guilt says, “I’ve done something bad.” It’s more about the behavior, not the person. This is especially important with young children (tomorrow night is a free workshop - Parent’s Are Hypnotists, Too at 6pm), as they are always in a state of hypnosis. Joey’s just been caught in a lie. Mom can say “Joey, lying is not ok,” or she can say, “Joey, you’re a liar.” How does that feel. The first is about his behavior, the second tells Joey that HE is bad. If he’s told this often enough, he starts to believe that he’s a liar.

Today I’m talking about opioids, a topic I’ve had on this blog before. A couple of weeks ago was National Opioid Awareness Week in Minnesota. It’s not just there, but across the country. When I published my book 8 months ago, Breaking Free from Pain and Opioids: Discovering the Hypnosis Option, 78 people died each day from prescription opioids and heroin. Today it is 91 people each day.  Hypnosis is a viable alternative for pain management with no addiction or negative side effects. The worse that can happen is that it doesn’t work. Our legislators need help. They can curb how many prescriptions doctors write, but they aren’t offering other solutions because they aren’t aware. Many of my clients want to know what they can do - write your representatives and senators and tell them that there are other options for them to explore. Hypnosis isn’t the only answer or the entire answer, but it is a piece of the puzzle. For those of you that have had a loved one or someone you know that is addicted to opioids, this is an opportunity for you to do something about it!
