October 2015 Newsletter-Spooky Attics

One of the most striking experiences I have ever had with my deep unconscious mind involved fear so powerful I was rendered immobile.

Having just had a really scary experience during a diving certification class, I was looking directly into the eyes of my diving instructor.  Recovering from the immediate, near drowning fright-the instructor had pulled me over into the shallow water. We floated face to face, our elbows firmly planted on the lake bottom, our heads sticking above the waterline. My hands clutched the sides of my diving mask in preparation to do the thing I had just failed so miserably. ..removing my mask under water. It had been my greatest fear all along and now I had directly experienced it.

My conscious mind, and my instructor, there in the shallow water, said... “You are safe, take off the mask now”. But I could not do it, yet.



I could not make my hands take the mask off. Tears of frustration and fear streamed down my face. The deepest parts of my mind were locked around the fear and refused to cooperate with what I wanted to do. Now that is a scary feeling, scarier than the fear of drowning itself!


Eventually, I did in fact overcome the experience and have enjoyed diving ever since. It is a wonderfully freeing experience to face, and overcome your fear.

It’s “BOO” time again! Are you the person that will be seeking the adrenaline rush of haunted houses this time of year? Or are you the person that lives with enough anxiety, worry and fear to last you all year long?

In truth- WE ALL HAVE FEARS; “Fear is not the enemy”. The question is to what degree do they dictate the experiences of our lives. We are going to discuss the origins of fear and anxiety, panic attacks and phobias. We will explore several techniques for reducing fear responses and participants are encouraged to share their own with the group! Our trance for the evening will offer generalized suggestions for reducing general anxiety.

Changing Bad Habits with Hypnosis-September Newsletter

Dick boasted while he ate a large slice of cake- “I didn’t need hypnosis to quit smoking, I quit through shear will power!”


Now his “will power” may have stopped the smoking habit but apparently Dick had picked up another habit-eating!  For that matter, his finger nails were looking like what he fed on, when food was not available. To give Dick’s “will power” credit, that was some mighty powerful change but perhaps, not in the ways Dick had thought.

It was immediately clear that he had a very determined mind; determined to CHANGE THE WAY HE FELT-SOMEHOW. That same determined mind was completely capable of ignoring the obvious, namely the 50 extra pounds he was carrying around his midline and the connection between all of this and having stopped smoking. Talk about some powerful Self-Hypnosis!

Habits-whether thoughts, feelings and/ or behaviors- are not necessarily good or bad, they are just useful or not useful. You are your habits.


And habits do change-think about it, you have been changing habits your whole life!


And they change quickly, and easily, when your unconsciously held beliefs and values are in line with your consciously held goals. BUT when the unconscious has another agenda... well, “will power” alone is often not enough or ignores the deeper needs the habit was intended to address.

Featured Trance for September: STOP COMFORT EATING

From our Affiliates at Uncommon Knowledge and Hypnosis Downloads: A trance that recognizes how habits serve purposes in our lives, even bad habits. Changing them is really a matter of finding more useful ways to get those same needs met. Remember, these are for general audiences. If it does not help as much as you want, we are here to help you get past your individual "stuckness".


Escape the compulsion to make yourself feel better with food

Do you turn to comfort eating more often than you would like?

Are the costs outweighing the benefits?

Life can be tough sometimes. And sometimes the things that make life difficult can go on for a long time. It's only human to want to help yourself feel better, and there's no getting away from it, what's easier to lay your hands on than what's in the fridge or food cupboard? Reaching for a tub of delicious ice-cream, a tasty deep base pizza or a packet of thick chocolate biscuits does not make you a bad person.

But although you get the instant reward of the great taste or the satisfyingly filling sensation, you've already discovered that reaching out for those sweet, filling foods on a too regular basis is bringing other consequences that you're not so keen on. And making you an unhappy person.

Which was why you reached out for them in the first place...

It's a trap, isn't it?  But there is a way out.

Hypnosis can help you overcome the habit of comfort eating

Stop comfort eating is an audio hypnosis session created by psychologists with wide experience in helping people with the psychological side of healthy weight management. It uses the power of hypnosis to help you break out of the behavior patterns that seem to have such a grip on you.

As you relax and listen repeatedly to your download, you'll notice that

  • the problems and challenges you're facing start to seem much less daunting you find yourself getting creative about developing real, practical solutions you develop a new relationship with your own emotions, and feel more at peace with them you find yourself naturally eating so much more healthily, and enjoying occasional treats without guilt or anxiety you feel much more relaxed and confident within yourself
