Emotional Detachment: DON’T DO IT!!

You need to feel your emotions because that is how you manifest.

If you’re having “negative” thoughts/emotions, they are trying to relay a message you might be ignoring or have not yet received and/or integrated. 

Pay attention, ask the right questions, and take the right (inspired) actions.

Feeling good by canceling out feeling bad will only delay your desires and apply more pressure until you are broken down and submit to acknowledging and FEELING your emotions – energy in motion.

Understanding why you feel bad in the first place and processing from “the first place” results in a good feeling.

Remember, when it comes to achieving emotional intelligence, always choose integration over dissociation.

Trust and Betrayal

Being distrustful of others is a byproduct of fear/insecurity and a sign that we do not trust ourselves or the unfoldment of life.

When we place our trust in others, it should be because we trust that person, group, or establishment will always do what is necessary for their best interest. That means whatever they are “programmed” to think is best for them, no matter how healthy or unhealthy that thing is.

The best thing we can all do is learn to become more discerning and distinguish between the voice of the higher consciousness and the lower consciousness. This strengthens trust in the self so we are able to see/feel/sense very quickly what resonates with our energy and what does not.

Let’s place our trust in us, the Divine Source within, that way when someone seemingly betrays your “trust” the betrayal might sting, but won’t be taken personally. For you will have already sensed that this person was going to take this action and prepared yourself thanks to your heightened connection with Source.

Put your faith in you and life itself. Know you are always shrouded in Divine protection and guidance, so you can love and experience all life has to offer freely. Only I have the power to hurt me therefore it is my responsibility to exercise my Divine authority as a sovereign being to be discerning about where I place my energy. The more we practice this, the quicker we can make decisions and be less emotional and delusional about situations. Take back your power..

Are You Getting Deep Restful Sleep?

Are you getting Deep Restful Sleep? I’m not talking about laying in bed for 7-8 hours tossing and turning. When was the last time you had a very deep sleep and woke up feeling refreshed and energized and ready to take on the day?

Sleep is essential to our health and well-being. While we sleep, the body repairs itself allowing emotional, mental, and physical healing to take place. Did you know we sleep to dream?

Dreaming is the time our brains to “take out the trash” or vent out any issues that could be blocking our desires for excellent health, a fulfilling career, more money, or meaningful relationships.

Dreams only occur when we sleep. If we don’t sleep well, we don’t dream, and the trash doesn’t get taken out. This can overload the brain causing hyper-suggestibility, fatigue, loss of memory, brain fog, and lack of focus.

I use hypnosis to help many clients with sleep issues like insomnia and anxiety. Hypnosis is a holistic and effective way to achieve amazing restful sleep. If you don’t want to use or want to discontinue use of sleep aids like pills, then hypnosis is a great alternative.

It’s a state of focused awareness that automatically brings deep relaxation to the entire body. This deep comfort and relaxation helps to bypass the mind’s natural defenses creating a direct line of communication with the subconscious mind which controls all our automatic behaviors.

We can use hypnosis to tell the subconscious mind that it is easy for you to fall asleep quickly and get sound, restful sleep.  I always include a suggestion that you will wake up feeling refreshed and energized and in the event you need to wake up and respond to an emergency, you will do so immediately and be fully alert.

Check out my FREE hypnosis video for Deep Sleep Fast. This is a powerful hypnosis, so only listen to this when you are ready to sleep for the night. This hypnosis for deep sleep will help you release anxiety and tension, relax every muscle in your body, fall asleep faster, and get a nice deep sleep. I suggest listening to this hypnosis every night before bed until you are able to get to sleep on your own. Try it out and let me know what your experience was like.

Recovery in the Wake of Tragedy: 7 ways to restore balance physically, mentally, and emotionally

We are living in uncertain times. We see images of violence, pain, and sadness plastered all over social media, the television and newspapers. It either desensitizes us to the horrors or keeps us stuck in a highly suggestible state invoking feelings of fear, anger, sadness and hopelessness.

It is because of this I was inspired to share some very important tips for coping  and taking care of yourself during stressful times and tragic events. Events such as the ones we all witnessed last week with gun violence against African American citizens and Law Enforcement. This type of violence has been happening for many years and is not new, however, these recent incidents carried a different kind of energy and a definite shift in consciousness could be felt around the World.

It seems as though these events were felt by the masses on a deeper and more profound level. I personally experienced an intense emotional reaction accompanied by stomach aches, insomnia and fatigue, which is out of the ordinary for me. Then, it dawned on me that I was experiencing body syndromes which, as described by Dr. John Kappas founder of HMI College of Hypnotherapy, is a physical manifestation of emotions. I’ll do a separate blog post and video on Body Syndromes later.

I thought to myself “If I am feeling this way surely others are having similar reactions to these tragedies.” So, I wanted to share 7 ways to restore balance physically, mentally, and emotionally in the wake of tragedy.

Tip # 1: Make sure you’re eating enough food. Eat healthy meals four to six times throughout the day. That means breakfast, lunch, and dinner with small snacks in between. Be sure to include plenty of good protein and whole fruits and vegetables. We call this grazing in the hypnotherapy community and we encourage our clients to do this in order to help  stabilize blood sugar levels. When blood sugar levels drop it can cause you to become moody, easy to anger and easily agitated. You might also get headaches, nausea, and dizziness. In order for you to stay the happy, healthy, loving, caring, and sharing person that you are and maintain your health throughout the day, fuel your body up with good healthy foods.

Tip #2: Drink lots and lots of water. This is very important because when you experience a stressful situation or tragedy, it triggers the  flight or fight response. This response stirs emotions such as anger, fear, lack, worry, or frustration. The stress causes the body to pump toxins into the bloodstream. Drinking plenty of water helps flush toxins out of the body. It’s also Summertime in many places around the world and it is hot outside so, hot external temperatures mixed with hot internal tempers can be a recipe for disaster. It is important for you to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to help you keep cool, calm, and collected.

Tip #3: Get plenty of sleep. Sleep helps you maintain a sound mind which helps with making healthy, smart, life saving decisions. Throughout the day you are inundated with information from the outside world, from your own thoughts and feelings and from the media. The brain was not made to hold every bit of information received so it must vent out the overload of information during your sleeping time through dreams. Dreaming allows the mind to get rid of all the information that you do not need and retain the information that is helpful and beneficial to you. Therefore, if you do not sleep, your mind becomes overloaded with all of the information that was not allowed to be filtered out during dream time. This can put you in environmental hypnosis, or in overload, which makes you feel like you are “zoned out”or not present. When you do not get enough sleep you might do things like run a red light or forget to pay an important bill or find yourself in a situation where you are not making the best decision for you and other people around you.

Tip #4: Make sure you give yourself a break from the news. Turn the TV off and stay away from social media if only for one day. Recent studies have shown that over exposure to violent images or even just hearing or reading about tragedies can wreak havoc on our psyche and trigger symptoms of PTSD.

Tip #5: Reach out to your loved ones and talk to people who have a positive outlook on the world. It is okay and perfectly natural to be angry and frustrated about what is going on, but you do not want to carry on conversations with people who are spewing words of hatred anger or fear. You want to have high vibration conversations during times like these in order to maintain a sense of hope.

Tip #6: If you are open to it, meditate, meditate, and then meditate some more. Studies have shown that meditation can help lower high blood pressure and increase health and vitality. It can also bring a sense of peace and well-being to the entire mind, body, and spirit. If you do not know how to meditate there are many YouTube videos for guided meditations. Just do a search and you’d be surprised at the thousands of videos that are out there. These meditations run anywhere from 1 minute to 9 hours.

Tip #7: Final tip. If you have tried all of the tips from 1 through 6 and you notice that you are still having trouble letting go of frustration and anger, or maybe having feelings of fear and anxiety, or experiencing bouts of sadness, I strongly recommend that you seek outside counsel. Hypnotherapy is a very effective and powerful tool to help improve your sleep, relieve anger,  anxiety and fears, and help with Stress Management. Hypnosis is simply a focused state of awareness where the body is completely and totally relaxed, the mind is open and allows access to the subconscious where true long-term positive changes can take place.
