Today's Friday Photo comes from the Apple store in the Big Apple of New York City, NY. It's my time to brag about what a great hypnotist Linda is - in her 4th year at The FARE Hypnosis Center. A fortunate client got this quote to think about last week and it's been resounding in my mind ever since. How does this resonate with you?

Probably the most important conversations you have are the ones you have with yourself. They can be the most productive or the most damaging. We create what’s called arbitrary relational frames in our mind. Let me give you an example: Look around you and pick an object near you. Now choose one more thing in your space. Got them? Now, of the two objects, which is better? Go ahead - make a case for why one is better than the other. Of the the two objects, which is the parent and why? (Which came first?) I chose a shoe and a laser printer. And I’m sure, like me, you were able to completely logic the answers to each of those questions. I know I was quite satisfied with my answers. Here’s the point - You create everything from your perception and then make judgments about them -even if it doesn’t make sense or isn’t important.  What thoughts, beliefs and ideas do you hold that have been created arbitrarily, and though you’ve forced them to make sense in some way, no longer serve you? Sometimes it’s hard to let go of these things - and that’s where we can help. 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.

Feel like you are always pedaling uphill, or worse yet, your chain has come off and you are stuck where you are on your path? There are many things that can keep you stuck. Stuck in worry or fear or pain, or because of these things, in a lack of sleep. Stuck with unwanted habits like improper eating, smoking, or other activities that are really just distractors for dealing with something you don’t want to address. Stuck with old, out-dated beliefs that may have served you at one time but now, well, just keep you stuck in a place you no longer desire to be. Stuck not feeling the way you want to feel about yourself or living the life you want to live. Perhaps you are doing ok but want to be the best possible version of yourself - to ride at you optimum level of performance. At The FARE Hypnosis Center we work with you in a variety of ways to put your bike on the path wherever you are and head downhill toward your goals. Some clients want to dig in and figure it all out - to get to the bottom of things. Some want to just let the past go and move toward the future. Some want to be inspired, to be connected with their true potential. No matter where you are on your path, we’re going to guide you to the path of least resistance, in exactly the way that works best for you. We are like the bike - we can take you in the direction you want to go, but you have to steer and peddle. If you are ready to change gears, to change your direction towards living the life you want, call us or book your appointment on our website today - and let us guide you up to the speed that’s best for you. 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.

From time to time we’ll have clients who say they inherited their mother’s fear of driving, or they - the client, mom and  sister - all get motion sickness in the car, or perhaps they  they inherited same fear of spiders that their dad and brother have. Sometime emotions like fear, and certain physical behaviors are mistaken for learned behaviors. When you are young you may form a certain belief, like every time you ride in a car you get motion sickness. You see that it happens to Mom, so it must be true for you, too. You see mom get sick, so now it is really true. Then you observe how mom copes - she has to have a window open, or she has to be sure she doesn’t eat an hour before the car ride, or smell anything bad during the ride. And wow, it’s true for you, too. And you know it because you didn’t open the window one time and you got sick. And all of these ideas build. Then they become expectations. And then they become habits. A belief is then confirmed because it happens again and again.  Here’s the rub - a belief is just something you keep thinking over and over again. And you know you can change your thoughts any time. I laid the green sweater out last night, and look what I put on this morning. Change your thoughts, change your mind, change your life. We can help with that!

Today's Friday Photo comes from San Antonio, Texas. I love the charm and history of the Riverwalk there. And this quote is another of my favorites. You have all the control you need in what you perceive and how you feel about something. Which Master do you choose to serve........

  I remember one day about 7 years ago walking along the creek at Minnehaha Falls with my daughter. We were watching some 7-8 years old playing totally uninhibited in the river. My daughter asked, when did I forget how to do that? She was only 22.

I’d love you to make a treasure chest. Sometimes life is challenging and throws a lot of stuff our way. It’s those times that we need to dig in and gather the resources that we have inside to get through.

So why you don’t need the treasure chest now, get a bunch of slips of paper and a jar or pretty box. On those slips of paper write down resources that you have.

They may be physical things that make you feel better. like a warm snuggly blanket. It could be emotional, like going to a place where you feel really comfortable. It could be meditation. Or something spiritual like prayer or connecting somehow.

We all have amazing resources inside of us - physical, spiritual and mental things that help get us through tough times. Write down as many as you can think of on individual slips of paper. Put them in your treasure chest and when one of those tough times comes along, pick one out and do it!

Today's Friday Photo comes from Albuquerque, New Mexico. This was  a thrilling ride to take (I was in the car going the other direction!) - almost 3 miles and 10,000 feet above the valley floor. I was hesitant at first, imagining all the things that could go wrong (they DO in the movies, you know....LOL), but then I decided not to miss out on this incredible view. What are you going to let go of in the new year that's keeping you stuck?
