Time for a Change-TBHT Newsletter, September 2021

“Tick tock”.

The clock is always moving forward, and each of us born with only so much of it given to us.

COVID is a part of our experience, and while it has not halted time, it has definitely altered the way we spend it.

As a MindArtist said our most recent COVID support zoom call, “ It’s like the movie GroundHogs Day”, where we seem to just keep repeating the same day over and over.

It certainly feels that way in my office, as I am spending much more time there than I am at home.

As you might expect, there is an unprecedented surge of stress, anxiety, loss and grief, “stuckness”, fear and (it’s wicked twin) anger. It is such an honor to help people find, and hold, their center again.

There is also an unprecedented surge of people who are embracing this time as a motivation to do things they have been “putting off” in their lives. It is an honor to be a catalyst and a witness to such empowered change.

Because, well…

“Tick tock”…

Time is still passing, COVID or not, and you only have so much of it.

How do you want to spend it?

Our FREE September Meetup might help you make the most of the time you have. “ Better Time Management”, is on-line Thursday, September 9th, 7-8:30pm. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/279756278/. Donations/testimonials welcomed.

Please take good care of yourselves and know, that you are welcome to join us for some self-care through a little connection, and a stress management trance, at our next COVID Support Zoom call. Thursday, September 16th, 9:30-11am. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/280293479/. Free/ donations/testimonials welcomed.

Please, we are all going through this together, let’s be kind to one another.

Better Boundaries-TBHT August 2021 Newsletter

It’s the first “ Law of the mind”, you get what you focus on.

Simone Biles, “the greatest gymnast ever”, knows this, which is why she took the bold position of stepping down from the Olympic competitions this summer.

She recognized she was not in the right “mindset”, that her focus was not where it should be and that it would effect her performance. The meticulous “flow” state that is required to do what she does would be thrown off by that unconscious thought/feeling. Most athletes and other performers understand but not everyone would have had the courage to step away.

What makes her choice exceptional, is that Biles acted on her own personal and professional best interest, rather than what the rest of the world expected of her.

She demonstrated BOUNDARIES, something a lot of us struggle with in our local social circles, much less on a world wide scale.

If you find it hard to say “no”, if you are a people pleaser, or know that you agree with others just to avoid conflict, maybe you could take a lesson from Simone Biles. Because your beautiful creative unconscious can do it; before you “give in” next time, you might ask “What would Simone Biles do right now…?”

And our FREE, August Meetup might help it be even easier. “Better Boundaries: Hypnosis and Life Mastery” will be held ON-LINE, Thursday, August 13th from 7-8:30pm. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/279755735/

Our affiliate, with over 1200, low cost Hypnosis Audios (less than 15.00!), offer many titles related to improving “emotional and social intelligence” like personal boundaries. Managing anger, resentment, forgiveness, handling difficult relationships and situations…there is probably something there you could appreciate more of in your life. Start exploring at our website https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

School is around the corner, you might find some nice hypnosis audios to help improve studying, focus, attention, and other academic concerns. https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

To further support the return to school, we are offering “Better Time Management” as our FREE September Meetup and we ALWAYS offer a STUDENT TEST SUCCESS SPECIAL-a $100.00 single session with a customized recording. What an awesome gift for the student in your life. Reach out for FREE phone consultation and let us know that you are interested in the “Student Special”! https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/appointments

Our next “Words That Change Your Life” Bookclub read has been selected; “The Friendship Formula”, is a workbook to help develop and/or deepen relationships. We are scheduled to begin Wednesday, September 22, 7-8:30pm. Meets bi-weekly and on-line. 40.00 suggested donation (10.00 per meeting) https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/sctzmsyccmbdc/

Wishing you all a safe and sane transition from summer vacation to the routines of the school year. Please, let kindness be our focus today.

Changing Times-TBHT Newsletter July 2021

“Time distortion “, is one of the easiest hypnotic phenomena to experience, most of us know it from our everyday life. One minute can feel like forever, or it can be gone in a flash.

Our experience of time is a very internal, unconscious, felt sense, separate from the marking of time via a clock. Even my pets, have an internal sense of time so embodied, they let me know, almost to the minute, when it is dinner time.

Does it feel like life is racing by, or dragging along? Do you know, you have some power over that?

We will share some techniques that can help you make more of the time you have at our next FREE Monthly Meet-up “ Mindfulness, Meditation and Hypnosis”, Thursday, July , 7-8:30 pm.https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/277525286/

Sometimes, time stands still. For example, 2020 almost feels like “the year that did not happen”, especially at the current rate of re-opening; which is something we discussed in our last COVID Support Group Zoom meeting. That FREE, on-line call is still being held once a month and anyone can join in. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/279019942/?isFirstPublish=true

Time is one of our most precious resources, and I like to tell people that using the hypnotic arts is one way to save time on your journey. You probably are going to get where you are going but what if you could get there more quickly? What would you like to change? I bet my affiliate has an inexpensive, hypnosis audio download recording for that! Start exploring their over 1200 titles. https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

And if that does not move you forward, it probably means that some unconscious part of you has a different agenda that needs to be addressed. Reach for a free phone consultation.https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com

It's Summer time and the days are long. Wishing you all sunshine, a chance to slow down, rest and enjoy whatever it is that matters to you. Tamera

On the Medical Applications of Trancework-TBHT Newsletter, June 2021

We all are susceptible to unconscious suggestions, persuasion and influence.

For example, how long would I have to talk about “yawning”, maybe asking you to see, hear or feel a yawn in a variety of ways, before you felt an unconscious urge to yawn? Did you ever have to run a facet in order to encourage voiding of the bladder? (Or felt the urge come upon you as you look upon a body of water?)

Our unconscious mind attends and responds to all sorts of stimuli in ways our conscious minds cannot.

We will be talking about how this openness to suggestion can be used for health and healing of the body in our FREE, On-LINE Meetup, “ The Medical Applications of Hypnosis”. Thursday, June 10th, 7-8:30pm. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/277524869/

“Influence, The Psychology of Persuasion” by Robert Cialdini is our summer “Words That Will Change Your Life, TBHT Bookclub “ read. Held bi-weekly, donation based and ON-LINE, this book will offer you a DEFENSE AGAINST BEING UNCONSCIOUSLY INFLUENCED. Begins Wed June 2nd, 7pm. We close the group to new members on June 16th. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/xxcshsyccjbdb/

Suggestion is of course, at the heart of, and a defining aspect of, “straight up” hypnosis, like the affordable audio downloads from my affiliate. With over 1200 titles, it is usually worthwhile to start change work with such a tool. Start exploring from my top 100 at https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

If the audio does not produce the outcome you are hoping for, email me for a free consultation. It only means that there is a stronger unconscious program that needs to be addressed, and I will credit you the purchase. You can send me a request for a call at https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com

Wishing everyone a nice start to Summer 2021 and let’s please be nice to one another as we emerge from the COVID pandemic, we have all been through a lot.

Making New Friends-TBHT Newsletter May 2021

Bruno, my rescue pit-mix, really enjoyed having me home during the pandemic.

As I returned to the office, he let me know, in his own doggy way, that he was lonely.

So, we rescued a kitten, Loki.

From the moment he arrived on this planet, Loki has felt safe. The result is a kitten that is quick to explore, engage and be vulnerable ( e.g. he gives everyone access to his fuzzy belly).

And that is good because Bruno takes persistence, and really being “ in- tune”, if you want to be Bruno’s friend.

Unlike Loki, Bruno’s puppyhood was not someplace he felt safe.

While much improved after years with me, he remains hyper-vigilant, with many “ triggers” and “walls”, he goes into fight/flight quickly.Unfortunately, his own fear is in the way of his getting more friends, love and attention, the very things he lives for!

It sure would be easier if Bruno could choose to change,….but of course, he is a dog.

You though, CAN CHOOSE to CHANGE.

Are you more like Loki, more like Bruno, or somewhere in between? Are you satisfied with your current way of interacting with others? The quantity and quality of your relationships?

As we cautiously and responsibly emerge from the pandemic, we are re-engaging one another again in the real world. It is a great time to offer our “More Social Confidence; Hypnosis and Life Mastery” presentation. Join us for our FREE, ON-LINE Monthly Meetup, May 13th, 7pm. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/

Maybe you know exactly what your interpersonal skill challenges are. Our affiliate offers 100s of affordable hypnosis audio downloads to improve specific skills at an “unconscious”, automatic level. I encourage you to start your exploration from my site and see if there is something you might find useful among their titles. What if your changes could be that easy? https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

The pandemic has created its own social fears and isolation. If you are looking for a way to take care of yourself through connection, you are welcome to join us for our FREE, On-Line COVID Support Group, held every Thursday at 9:30am. IF you like us on Facebook, you will get a weekly reminder. https://www.facebook.com/TBHypnoTherapy

“Influence, the Psychology of Persuasion” by Robert Cialdini will be our summer read in our “TBHT Bookclub: Words that Change Your Life”. On-line, donation based, we begin June 2nd. Join our Meetup Group https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com

Fully vaccinated, I am back in my office, and back out in the world, with an appropriate level of caution.

Hope to see you all out there again soon.

What are YOU Driving?-TBHT Newsletter, March2021

Before I owned a Toyota Corolla I had no idea how many Corollas were out there. Trust me-that vehicle has been around a long time, was intended to be affordable, and they are extremely reliable, staying on the road for a long time…Unless you have owned a Corolla, you may not be aware that there is one at almost every red light.

If you have no interest or experience with a Corolla, you may have never noticed this, just like you probably do not notice any of the 1000s of other vehicles that you come across daily.


Not a problem if you are content with “the head” you are currently driving around in, but sometimes, it can be limiting.


After all, there are all those other choices, all those other “vehicles” out there.

This concept of “self limiting” beliefs apply to many aspects of life but one of the most common areas in shows up is in our relationship with MONEY. Self-limiting beliefs about money are so common, that expanding our consciousness around money is a multibillion dollar industry in the West.

“A Prosperity Mindset-Hypnosis and Life Mastery” is our FREE, ON-LINE Meet Up this month, we will address common self limiting beliefs around money and offer a trance to expand your awareness and opportunity for prosperity. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/275548622/

Our affiliate offers hundreds of hypnotic audio downloads for changing other self-limiting beliefs, and amazingly low prices, like “Re-inventing Yourself”, and why not? Do not let your own self-limiting beliefs get in the way, you CAN start today! https://www.hypnosisdownloads.com/personal-development?6081!top100

If a recording does not do the trick, that is only information. It lets us know that a part of you has a reason for continuing to do what it is doing-even when consciously, you want change. That is a great time to call for a FREE phone consultation. I like to say, hypnosis recordings are great for making sure there is gas, oil and water in the vehicle.  Individualized hypnotherapy sessions are like “popping the hood” and “rebuilding the engine”. To set up a consultation, send me a note through the website https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com

A trance a week can help keep your motor clean, especially in these times, as participants in our Weekly COVID Support Group will attest. We are heading into our one year Anniversary, still hard to believe.  The group is open to the public, and you really are welcome to drop in.  Join our Meetup group for FREE through my homepage https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com

I know we are all ready for Spring and I have hope that the "winter" that has been COVID is BEGINNING to thaw. Wishing us all peace and patience until the blooms are open…Tamera
