"Change Happens"-TBHT Newsletter, December 2021

Ironic isn't it, that the only real constant in the universe,the only thing we can absolutely 100% know for certain...is that things change.

Change is always happening.

I am particularly struck by how MUCH CHANGE HAPPENS and how CHANGE HAPPENS FAST.

As we enter a second "pandemic saturated" holiday season, the metaphor of the pandemic as a TIDAL WAVE-like disaster that touches everything and everyone, still applies. It is a very useful metaphor...

This pandemic slammed into our existing realities with great force, changing everything.

And, like water, is still seeping into every level of those realities. As the water recedes, we see/hear/feel a changed world. Uncertainty abounds, and uncertainty creates stress.

Change is STILL happening, very swift and very pervasive.

Sometimes it is obvious, very tangible (loss of income, loss of life...).Sometimes less direct, not so tangible, or obvious (loss of meaning, loss of confidence... )

If you find yourself stressed by it all, please know you are in good company. One pandemic related change has been the "de-stigmatization" of mental health because, as they say, “the pain is real”.

It is important YOU FIND WAYS TO RIDE the WAVES of CHANGE.

I encourage us all to start by:

  • Developing skills for managing your own emotional state, acknowledging the changes, avoid judging the changes, and simply lay out your best plan to ride the changes (toward a value driven destination).

To that end, let’s get your creative unconscious mind “on-board”!

Our last FREE Meetup offering of 2021 is “Recovering Passion and Purpose: Hypnosis and Life Mastery”. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/279757459/

And if you are still looking for a something green, affordable, and local …how about a really UNIQUE, LIFE CHANGING, LAST MINUTE GIFTS:

HYPNOSIS DOWNLOADS! With over 1200 titles, I am sure there is something for that special person, start exploring here: https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

Wishing all of you peace and presence as we step into 2022. Tamera

Holiday Temptations-TBHT Newsletter, October 2021

Consciously, we are thinking “ I don’t want to eat too much this holiday.” “ I don’t want to drink too much…, spend too much…, you name the habit.

BUT it is the season of excess and so for many of us, those powerful unconscious impulses override all of our good, conscious, intentions. In the hypnotic arts we say the conscious and unconscious are out of rapport, they are on conflict with one another ( and a note: the unconscious almost always wins).

January 2nd arrives and we have put on an extra 2 pounds we will not get rid of ( research shows it adds up over the years), there may be long term consequences from the alcohol abuse, credit debt that takes until next December to pay off, and New Year Resolutions that we will probably not keep and feel bad about not keeping.

It’s easy to avoid those temptations…when your unconscious is in alignment with the consciously held goal. You do this everyday, you might be tempted to run a red light but your conscious and unconscious agree, you don’t want a ticket or to be in an accident so you stop (most of us).

The trick of course is aligning the conscious and unconscious, which is the goal of the hypnotic arts.

What if your unconscious agreed that that the rewards for your restraint are far greater than the rewards of your excess. Behavior would easily and effortlessly flow from this alignment would it not?

Our FREE monthly MeetUp for November to kick off the holiday season is “ Resisting Temptation: Hypnosis and Life Mastery”. On-line, Thursday 11/11 at 7pm.

If you have some specific habits of excess you would like to curb easily and effortlessly, our affiliate offers over 1200 titles of hypnosis downloads at really affordable prices (15.00 or less!). There are over 15 titles related to weight management alone in the top 100, and dozens more if you click through to their site. These downloads make really unique and meaningful gifts! Explore their catalogue by starting here https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

We will be doing our November COVID Support group call on WEDNESDAY the 24th, and am planning my favorite “Trance to Enhance Gratitude”. Everyone effected by COVID is welcome to attend. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/281655690/

Mark you calendars, our last Meeting of the year will be our Free December presentation “Recovering Passion and Purpose;Hypnosis and Life Mastery” to get your creative unconscious juices flowing as we head onto the New Year. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/279757459/

Hope you are all enjoying our Florida fall, and saying yes to the change in your life.

Words Matter: TBHT Newsletter-October 2021

“Abracadabra”, a word associated with magic, is said to be of very ancient origins, and is loosely interpreted as meaning, “I create what I speak”.

And we do, the words we use, those words that go through your mind and lips over and over again, both reflect and create your reality.

Of course, the magic of words, the magic of language as a whole, play a big part in the hypnotic arts and therapeutic conversations.

One of the most powerful words in your repertoire, is also the simplest.


“The Power of YES; Hypnosis and Life Mastery” is our next FREE community Meetup. On-line, join us for a discussion and a trance to enhance your use of this magical word! Thursday, October 14th, 7pm. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/279756847/

Mark your calendars, as we will explore the power of “NO” in our November Meetup on “Resisting Holiday Temptations”. November 11, on-line. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/279757151/

Speaking of the upcoming holidays, if you are looking for a really unique gift, for yourself or someone you love, why not explore that “word magic” of a “ straight up” hypnosis audio download. Our affiliate offers over 1200 titles addressing everything, from addiction to zits at very affordable (cheap) prices. Click on any one of our Top 100 audios to access the whole catalogue. https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

There are hundreds of titles there for stress management alone, and based on the surging volume in my office, would be a welcome gift indeed.

To help with stress, we are still offering the COVID Support Group on a monthly basis, our last meeting included a trance to enhance “Acceptance”. The next FREE gathering, on-line, is Thursday October 21st, 9:30am. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/280837521/

And of course, I am always open to scheduling a FREE half hour phone consultation. Just reach out to me at https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com.

With just a tease of fall in the air you can know that change is coming, it always is. May your change be something you feel excited, empowered and enthusiastic about.

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.

Our affiliate offers over 1200 “straight up” hypnosis downloads, to include titles that enhance other personal, academic or professional goals, and for as little as 15.00! Always worth a try first, and a great gift, click anywhere on the list of the top 100 titles and explore! https://www.tampabayhypnotherapy.com/help-yourself/hypnosis-audio-downloads

I know some of you who are more medically vulnerable, may feel a need to reduce your social activities again in our current COVID surge. 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.

We are also starting a new workbook, “The Friendship Formula” by Kyler Shumway. “Say Goodbye to Loneliness and Discover Deeper Connection”. Begins Wednesday, September 22nd, 7-8:30pm. https://www.meetup.com/TampaBayHypnotherapy-Community-Group/events/sctzmsyccmbdc/ Suggested donation of 10.00 per meeting/ testimonials welcomed.

And as always, even though the office is busy, I am available for FREE half-hour phone consultations to talk about any specific challenges you may have or change work you may want to do.

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
