Hypnosis for Chronic Pain

Featured Video Play Icon

https://youtu.be/ZPkNFscnEs4 It’s been a while since I talked about hypnosis for chronic pain. Of all of the issues that hypnosis can be of benefit, none have been studied as much as pain. The efficacy of hypnosis for pain management is scientifically sound. While I often speak of my personal success with self-hypnosis, people will have […]

Words and Wellbeing

Words and Wellbeing go hand in hand. I often talk about the power of words because they are important. But something that is even more important is the feeling and intention behind the words. I’ll use the word healing as an example. It can apply to physical or mental healing. If you are talking about […]

Today’s Friday Photo comes from Mt. Hood, OR. I just love this quote! Admiring the beauty that blossoms as my clients overcome their obstacles and become who they are meant to be!

Today’s Friday Photo comes from a Bloomington park, MN. Norman had it right. There is no synthetic medicine more powerful than your body and mind’s ability to heal. Just like these winter trees will be green again in Spring, so does your body rejuvenate itself

Unconvincing Yourself

https://youtu.be/aHi6PCA_ZbY I was teaching self-hypnosis to a client last week and an old definition for hypnosis came into my mind: The ability to convince yourself, or unconvince yourself of something. I laughed when I realized how good people are at self-hypnosis – negative self-hypnosis. The most powerful suggestions are the ones you give to yourself. […]

https://youtu.be/w65ki1O38Dc It’s true that people rise or lower to meet expectations. When you give someone, or are given a label, that’s a strong expectation.  What labels have you been given, or have given yourself?  A pain sufferer  A victim A person who has “this” disease or diagnosis (fill in the blank) Fat, poor, stupid, fearful […]

Headache Pain

https://youtu.be/u73FTasjwUs I just finished working with a client who has constant headaches. The doctors couldn’t find anything wrong. They said he’d have to live with it. He’s 12. That’s not a life sentence I’d want. There’s a tremendous amount of quality research that shows the efficacy of hypnosis for pain management. I’m always excited when […]

https://youtu.be/oF_2K6EyrkM At the end of 2021, I posted a couple of blogs about emotions. I’m in my 10th year of practice, and find that emotions are at the heart of almost every issue my clients have. In the text below this video, you’ll find the Emotional Ladder chart (from Ask and It Is Given). Here’s […]

https://youtu.be/AtILac0srQA Today I want to talk about focus. Focus is so important because what you focus on expands.  Have you ever gotten a new car or decided to take a trip to somewhere you’ve never been, then all of a sudden you see that car and that place everywhere? The car and the place have […]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuGBB15Pi4c Covid was a frightening and tragic time in our history. So many people died and experienced losses of many kinds.  But I’m of the belief that benefits can be found in every situation, even from terrible events. My clients prove that to me every day. It is when they can see the benefits from […]
