  I am working with a second member of a family. Both clients have found the creative breathing technique I teach to be extremely helpful, so they have taught all the family members how to use it.

Today's Friday Photo comes from the Golden Gate Bridge in California. Watching this wall of fog come in under the bridge was a site to behold. Within a few fascinating minutes Alcatraz and the city had disappeared. And the fog didn't care about my viewpoint (pun intend, or the lack of it!) We worry so much about what others think about us. If we put more of that energy into learning to accept and love ourselves, we'd all be so much better off......

  Last week I talked about focus and how clients get fixated on the problem rather than the solution. This week I want to give you some ideas to get started on how to focus on what you want, rather than what you don’t want. It really is easy!

On any specific issue, are you satisfied with where you are? This is an important question because if you are not satisfied with it, and you continue to think about it as it is, nothing can change. What you focus on expands in your awareness and your mind will filter out anything contrary to that expectation. (see this old blog post on the 4 laws of the mind)

Hi, I’m Linda Schutz, a board certified hypnotist at the FARE Hypnosis Center.  This morning a man from a delivery service stopped into our Center to drop off a package. He was a pleasant enough guy, in fact, if you didn't speak English and just listened to the sound of his voice, you would have thought he was a very upbeat, positive and comical person.

Today's Friday Photo comes from anyone's front porch, though these beauties probably wouldn't last long in the hotter areas of the US. These blooms appear to be fireworks in their own right and are a great follow up to our blog last Monday. Firework

Linda and I were talking about techniques we use in helping our clients and I started thinking about three take-aways from that conversation that really apply to everyone. First, it’s not about us (the hypnotist). We are simply the guide with some pretty cool tools and processes. If you are trying to help someone, it’s not about you and what you think is best. Second, we (the hypnotists) have to have our own house in order. Meaning, we have to be present and at our best when working with a client, not down with them at their level. If you are offering assistance, you want to have energy that will model where they can be and help  bring them up to that higher level. Third, we (the hypnotists) can’t help anyone that doesn’t desire the change they are seeking. That may seem strange, but some people want others to make the change happen for them. We, nor you, can make anyone change. Trying to do the work for them deprives them of the learning they need to discover for themselves. Linda summed it up perfectly - “Before you can be the big firework in the sky, you need to be the sparkler in the hand of the one that desires the glow.”  We love to sparkle. Come glow with us! I’m Roberta Fernandez, a Board Certified Hypnotist and Certified Trainer at The FARE Hypnosis Center, helping you take back control, by unlocking the power of your mind to reach your goals of any kind.
