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

 Love and the Inner Critic-TBHT February 2021 Newsletter

Polarized positions, “Black or White” or “All or Nothing” thinking, also known as “Dichotomous” thinking…implies conflict, and as I like to say…is a “crazy maker”.

Absolutes, may be appear comfortable BUT almost never lead to peace... between people or inside ourselves.

One of the most common sources of internal conflict, and polarized thinking, is the “Inner Critic”, that nagging voice inside reminding you how awful and inept you are. That unconscious part of you that is monitoring, critiquing, judging, condemning, and demanding more of you all the time...you might think of it as an “extremist”.

There are much more resourceful, and productive ways for that part of yourself to be expressed and still get its goals met.

“Taming the Inner Critic” is a vital aspect of self love, and that is what we will explore as our Valentine's Day Gift to you at our FREE Meetup for February 2021. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/274790262/

It is the month of love of course, and our affiliate offers hypnotic audio downloads on “everything love”; dating, relationship, sexuality…and at really affordable prices. They are certainly worth a listen, and we are here if the recordings do not do the trick…https://www.hypnosisdownloads.com/relationship-problems?6081!top100

By the way, how are those resolutions coming? If you would like a boost of unconscious motivation and change, you can request an absolutely FREE copy of last months trance, “Resolutions for Change” by emailing us https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com

And if you still find that your conscious mind wants one thing, but you unconsciously keep getting something else, we are here to help bring resolution to that internal conflict, you can always call for a free, no obligation consultation.

Best wishes and Happy Valentines, Tamera

Habit Change and Hypnosis- TBHT Newsletter, January 2021

How quickly did this pandemic create new habits for you, have you noticed yet?Compared to last year, have you considered how different are your habits; of thinking, of feeling, and doing?

While I would not wish 2020 on anyone, it was a wonderful example of an external event can motivate a change in our habits.

And we are our habits of course. What we do over and over and over again, defines our lives.

Which is great, as long as it is working for you.

But when a habit is no longer possible (as in a pandemic, for example), is no longer useful (a bottle of wine every night, for example), no longer is serving us ( bad relationships, for example) or may even be hurting us ( feelings of low self worth or smoking, for example);


And change is much easier with the right tools, easier when the unconscious mind is on board. Trance based approaches offer tools to facilitate change at a deeper level of mind, where it becomes “ automatic”; the same way the “ problem” habit is experienced today.

You can learn more at our FREE, on-line, January meetup: “Changing Bad Habits; Hypnosis and Health”. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/274775136/

Sometimes, a good hypnosis download is all that is needed to get the unconscious “on board”, if you have specific habits you would like to change for 2021, why not explore our affiliate who offers over 1200 hypnosis downloads at really great prices?https://www.hypnosisdownloads.com/bad-habits?6081!top100

If those bad habits persist; if your conscious mind wants to change but your habituated unconscious keeps doing something else- this is not failure, only feedback. Find someone you trust to work through whatever unconscious needs are being met by the thoughts, feelings or behavior.

Of course, we are always honored when that someone you can trust, is us.

Wishing you all a peaceful start to the New Year.
