Intending to Let Go of Expectation

Many words in English can be interpreted in many ways.

A client I’ll call Jasmine had been working on her Instagram content for a while. Living nomadically as a chef, Instagram worked perfectly for her lifestyle. Her goal was to attract followers and engagement and then eventually monetize her work with brands to earn a living doing what she was passionate about.

As with any business, at times, Jasmine felt discouraged and lost. When things were not moving, money was not there. She started questioning what she was doing and whether she should continue. But before she quit, she had this idea to talk with a hypnotherapist, to get validation about whether quitting was a good idea.

The Fountainhead of My Inspiration

On the surface level of the storyline, it is a book about how an artist, an architect, chose to stay true to his art and his work, no matter how hard it could get and how many shortcuts were offered. On a deeper level, it was quite philosophical. The author, Ayn Rand, was considered a philosopher as much as a writer. Yet, there’s even more depth to it. As my soul was resonating with Howard, his calm nature, his matter-of-factness, his sovereignty… He stood for our own perfect and self-sufficient spiritual nature.

Turn Obstacles into Opportunities

Suppose disappointment without anger is the mark of an old soul, and not being disappointed is the mark of a really old soul. In that case, living your own life purpose and trusting your own life so thoroughly that every step on its path is valued more than where it is “supposed to take you”, must be the mark of an eternal young soul.

Deep Dive with Me

Turning 55 is a miracle of sorts for me, if you understand when I was 17, I was so, so, so afraid of getting old (18-years-old would be too old for me back then.). And when I was 20, I thought by the time the new millennium came, with its Y-2k issue, that it would not be my problem because I would probably be fine to be dead since I’d be so old (the ripe old age of 31) by then.

2024

But we all know that willpower is something that is always there when we don’t need it. And rarely there when we actually need it.

When the subconscious mind is engaged, you may not need much of the quality of willpower – Energetically speaking, this word carries a heavy energy of “hardship.” Just like when you enjoy your time and yourself, you don’t need much of the quality of “patience.”

Alex Formos with his new book Eurydice in Love 0

A Love Story Unlike Any Other

Alexander Formos wrote his new book Eurydice in Love with great courage, honesty, and soulful clarity. Currently, I’m only on chapter III but I am enjoying his bold and unbelievable story-telling style through the pages. Reading the book provides a perfect little break in my office after seeing my clients and before heading home.

Are There Any Physiological Changes to Hypnosis?

Eight months later, another newly certified hypnotherapist who is also my client reported that after one of our sessions, she had a chain of physiological responses. This video is the answers to her follow-up questions.

Will I Be…?

It was towards the end of Janet’s fourth hypnotherapy session. We had a few more minutes for her to reorient herself fully and for me to tuck away her file before my next client showed up. Janet was about to stand up, and then she sat back down on the upright recliner. Still, in a trance-like state, she giggled, “It’s so funny now to think about the list of questions I brought with me.”

Dearest Anne

First published in 1947 and then translated into more than seventy languages, Anne Frank’s diary has been known worldwide for many decades. We all have heard of it. But honestly, I never felt compelled to read it, imagining there might be more hype and political importance than an actual good book.

The Dragonfly

This morning, I found this piece I wrote in 2017 and decided to use it for this month’s blog post. I’m currently travelling in the Netherlands. I left the draft of this blog post on my computer screen and headed for Hilversum, today’s agenda. The moment I pulled my phone out to take a picture in the beautiful purple flower field, a dragonfly landed on my phone. I could not take a picture of my phone with a dragonfly on it when I needed it to take a picture. I called my partner. By the time he came, the dragonfly flew away. I sighed, but my partner asked me not to move. The cute dragonfly just flew up and landed on top of my hat. How synchronistic!
