A Space for Myself is a Space for you

I had a Skype session with a client during my travels in Venice Italy. It took me some extra time to get everything ready as connecting to the Internet didn’t go smoothly. I was six minutes late for the online appointment.

But finally I was on. I was glad. And my client seemed to be relieved too. So I said sorry, I didn’t mean to be late. I was about to tell her about the hard time that I had sorting out the wi-fi connection in Italian.

Guilt, Once is Enough

This is probably going to be the shortest blog I’ve posted, because, well, the title speaks for itself.

While I’m feeling “Baby, it’s warm inside”, I sometimes experience a little chill with my clients, when they are afraid to move forward because they feel guilty about something within themselves.

They feel that they need to feel guilty to keep themselves in check, as if “If I don’t feel guilt, I may run a mock.”

I’m a therapist, I’m not a philosopher. The wellbeing of each individual, especially those who make their way to my practice, is what I care about. So here we go with this wonderful, seeming noble idea of guilt:

An Illustrator’s Cave

My hypnotherapy practice tagline is “Access Your Inner Wisdom”. It’s based on the fact that we all have the inner solutions and wisdom to tap into.
A person can come into my practice presenting an issue, according to their conscious mind, like changing a habit, tackling an emotion, resolving a pattern… that is perceived from the conscious mind, which thinks, analyzes, rationalizes, and has short-term memories.
They come to see a hypnotherapist because they believe to find the cause of the problem, or solution, they need to go inside to their subconscious mind – the mind that created the problem and holds the solution.
Chelsea is an illustrator. She recently had a very “terrible breakup” that “triggered her major depression and anxiety attacks”. She cried everyday for two months. She couldn’t continue working so she took a whole month off to heal, so that she could function.

Theory of the Mind

To assist some of my workshops, I have made a Theory of the Mind.

This oval mind is not a closed system though. It has access to the universal mind – the power and Intelligence that has been named by many. It will enable you to solve any problem, overcome any obstacle, and achieve any goal that you sincerely desire.

I Don’t Know Who I Am Anymore

“The reason I choose hypnotherapy is that they say a lot of limiting beliefs, and low self-esteem, are because when I grew up, my parents put the stuff such as ‘I am not good enough’ to my head, and hypnotherapy can take them out of my head.”

“Yes. Hypnotherapy can take them out of your head, sometimes easily, as long as you have not taken an identity out of ‘the stuff’.”

Soul Eclipse

Is there a difference between darkness and evil?

Without doing their own thinking, many people would not even hesitate a second and say, “It’s the same.”
Treating darkness and evil the same is the source of a lot of our problems, mental, emotional, spiritual, even physical.

Mentally, when we treat them the same, we immediately get into the dualistic energy, and we become judgemental. We all say it’s not good to judge – but “it’s not good to judge” itself is a judgement, yet we cannot help but judge, to a degree that I hear a lot from my hypnotherapy clients, “Well, everyone judges. We can’t help it, even though it’s not good.”

That statement doesn’t have to be true. We only judge when we lose the balance of light and dark.

So, is there a difference between darkness and evil?

I say, “Yes.”

Trance Reality

Collective agreement makes us feel safe. Yet collective agreement is a TRANCE. We enter this trance, and call it “waking” state.

We are so conditioned to those standards that we fall asleep to our own inner senses. We become blind to what we truly know, inside, and we seek knowledge from outside.

Again and again and again, I’m amazed at how much resources, wisdom and creativity opening up when I induce a hypnotic trance with someone. The inner portions of a person’s identity are already aware of much that the person says he doesn’t know. My work becomes to acquaint one’s egotistical self with knowledge that is already known to a larger portion of one’s own consciousness, the one that is long ignored.

My New Year Present 0

My New Year Present

Who’d think that I’d work on the New Year’s Day? No me. But I had forgotten to block my online calendar, which has become a public space online, for that day off. Or maybe I simply assumed that nobody would want to book a hypnotherapy session on this day, therefore didn’t bother.

Obviously that was not the case for Heather and Linda.

So it was too late. Surprise! I found that on the New Year’s Day, I had to work.

Both of them indicated that they wanted a Past Life Regression. So on this first day of a new year, before moving forward in time, two women want to go back, to view what they were.

Our Space Brothers

From time to time, I am contacted by people who had some “other worldly” experiences, namely experiences with extraterrestrial beings, be it sightings, encounters of all sorts or even abductions.

I found the biggest struggle with these people is not necessarily the experiences themselves – They have survived, obviously, no matter how out of control they felt in those situations – but that they cannot make sense of the experiences. They suffer from the lack of sense-making therefore the inability to share the experiences with others.

One man in his fifties I’ll call Johnny had multiple times of close encounters with those space beings, and he came to see me self-diagnosed as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder…

Theoretically Happy 0

Theoretically Happy

A theoretical happiness is a true expression of guilt. Guilt is the worst emotions we humans can have. It is so artificial that you cannot find it in nature. Anger, sadness, nervousness are more natural emotions, but guilt is a cover-up emotion. When the natural emotions are not allowed, we use a worse emotion to cover it up. That’s why even “success” and “happiness” can burden a person. Ridiculous, isn’t it?
