  A woman recently told me that she couldn’t accept the fact that she had cancer because to her that meant giving in to it. While I can certainly see where that thought comes from, it caused me to think more deeply about it. I decided that the Friday photo from Sept 15th (http://farehypnosis.com/category/friday-photo/) was, perhaps a different way for her to examine her position.

  Beliefs are thoughts that we think over and over again. Wayne Dyer said “Change your thoughts, change your life.” It’s true - if you keep thinking the same thoughts or doing the same thing, your focus never changes - and what you focus on continues to expand.

Self improvement is a big topic. I find that it’s better to work on strengths than to focus on weaknesses. Remember the “F” in FARE talks about how what we focus on expands, so we want our focus to be something we WANT in our lives, not what we don’t.

Clients come to me with lots of beliefs about their past or their future. The past does not exist. It is gone - The only thing that exists is what you create in your mind at any given moment about the past- it’s either the good part or bad part, not the entire thing.

I’m on a retreat with a few other women hypnotists - A meeting of the minds so to speak. I thought I’d post something a past client of mine sent me. She knows I love stories so I thought I’d share what she sent to me:

As a hypnotist, I’m keenly aware of the power of words. The last couple of weeks we’ve been talking about the words “I’m sorry.” A few of you wrote with alternatives in reacting to ‘bad’ news.

Last week we talked about apologizing in a way that shared our gratitude instead of negativity. What about saying “I’m Sorry” when we really aren’t sorry. You know what I mean - someone tells you sad news  or something terrible and you automatically say “I’m sorry”.  “I had to put my dog to sleep.” or “My child is going to have to repeat the 5th grade.” or “I have cancer.”  We shouldn’t be apologizing, but we don’t know what else to say. Sorry can be used to express pity, regret, or sadness, but most often the word doesn’t convey what we’d like. I’ve actually had people say, “There’s no need to be sorry. You didn’t do anything.” Sound familiar?  I’ve been thinking about how to reframe this automatic response and I thought I’d put this out there to you, my listening audience. Obviously various scenarios may require specific responses, choosing another word, perhaps. I’m wondering, what’s another way to express ourselves in reacting to ‘bad’ news other than saying, “I’m sorry”?
