Let it go! with hypnotherapy
Are you ready to let this go? Are you ready to move forward?
These are some of the first questions I ask my client when they are starting a hypnotherapy session with me. Healing can only happen if you are ready and willing to accept the changes and new perspectives. Essentially you will come to know and accept your true Self, and be FREE.
Hypnotherapy is not what most people think. You are in full control of the session. You are dialoguing with me and can always hear me.
I am the guide, who takes you through to the root cause of your problem, to help you heal, and then you make the choice to allow the healing to happen, or not.
The less resistance there is, the better. It may require facing some pent up emotions or memories that you have suppressed for years. The question is how much you are ready and willing to go there.
I recently discovered that while having a patient hooked up on the Quantum Biofeedback machine, there seems to be a much quicker and deeper trance when the person is taken through hypnosis. The machine helps relax the mind and body, which gives the client a deeper look into the subconscious mind, thoughts, and memories. The key is being relaxed and having a somewhat vivid imagination. This combination of the biofeedback and hypnotherapy worked great, as I barely needed to induce a state of relaxation. My client was already there!
If you have a fear, resentment, anger, sadness, addiction, insomnia, or even a physical ailment that has not been healed, hypnotherapy can help you find and heal the root cause.
Keep in mind, each session will usually peel a layer of the many layers that may be there. One session may resolve one thing, but depending how deep the issue is, more sessions are usually required. Everyone is unique, and everyone as a chance to reach their full potential as a human being. The key is letting go of the things that no longer serve you!
Who are you? Do you define yourself by your career? Your gender? Race? Citizenship? Are you a mom? dad? husband? wife? brother? sister?
Many of us live in this illusion of who we are in this world and who we should be. There is no such thing. We are not this body, mind, or ego. These are all impermanent; eventually, none of these will exist, the body dies, and so does all of our identities.
We are eternal, infinite beings.
Once we realize the illusion we have created, we will see that no-thing we have attached to, including our own identity, really matters.
The conflict in this world exists because of the struggle with illusions.
The illusion of money, power, success, and especially the illusion of separation.
Once we realize we are all the same and are all connected to the one Source, one Energy, the illusion of self, will disappear. And the TRUE Self will be the only thing left. The true self is really our pure inner energy, our pure inner being, that is one with the Universe. This means living in peace and harmony with ourselves and every other living being, without being attached. The universe will provide what is necessary, if we listen (to our inner guidance) and go with the flow and direction of life.
On a practical level, to achieve this, takes some contemplation and meditation; Self awareness, and self observation. Catching the patterns of illusion and attachments and coming back to your inner truth.
Sending Love and Light on your Journey!
Quantum BiofeedBACK -
What it can do for your Health
The Quantum biofeedback machine is a unique tool that I decided to add to my practice almost 4 years ago.
I usually use this tool on the first visit of a Naturopathic appointment and most follow ups for assessment and treatments.
What information does it give?
In a very interesting way, it displays much information about the patient - physical, mental, and spiritual information.
I am always looking for disease risks – and whatever I find tends to be a good predictor of what may happen should the patient not take action to change their lifestyle. The machine also picks up on issues from the past – whether it is an old injury or illness. It is imprinted into the energy field of the client which is why it is still detected. It can also pick up current information - through questioning and further investigation it can be confirmed or assumed a disease risk.
I also look at toxins, nutrient deficiencies, infections– these are all potential risks which can be confirmed through further testing if the patient wants, however, I usually go ahead and offer remedies to start working on the balancing the body. If improvement is noticed- then we know something is changing and the body is starting to heal itself.
Another big aspect of the machine is always the mental/emotional blockages – patients become more aware of what they are retaining – trauma, emotions, attachments – and the machine does a great job linking this to the disease state in the body.
What treatments does it provide?
I also do treatments through the machine. It works by balancing the body’s energy flow – and therefore healing can take place more easily. Think of it like other energy therapies like acupuncture and reiki – the flow of energy in the body is corrected. Most disease stems from energetic imbalances – starting in the aura, the chakras – and these are thrown off many times by emotional trauma. It is very important to address the whole person when healing the body. The therapies I use on the machine are usually merdian therapy, chakra balancing, rife therapy, allergy therapy, detox, hormone balancing...and quite a few more. Many times I use a direct “ZAP” of a condition that is indicated – such as an infection, lactose intolerance, dental disease, kidney stones.
To have the best results with the machine, most people need a bi-weekly treatment at least 4-5 times, depending on the severity of the situation.
How do you feel during and after?
Most patients feel sleepy and/or very relaxed during the process on the machine. They ask me if its normal and I say yes! It’s a good thing. It is a sign the body is relaxing and starting to heal. Frequently, people will say they need to have a nap when they get home, or they slept very deeply that night. And sometimes, if the body is in need of a detox, the machine will allow for that- causing some frequent bathroom visits that day!
Treatments together with the machine
In my practice the machine is not the only therapy that I use so it is not absolutely necessary for everyone to come back so frequently unless they want the full experience of the machine and its effects.
I also test all my supplements and homeopathic remedies on the machine. It is like muscle testing – with muscle testing a remedy tested will make the muscle stronger. The machine is testing how much the remedy resonates with the body’s energy. If it strengthens the body, the result on the screen will show that at least 80% of the meridians in the body were strengthened due to the remedy. I also notice that the remedies I give when tested will actually work well for the patient.
This is why I find testing remedies so important – whether it s through this machine or muscle testing. Let’s say I may have studied a nutrient for a certain disease. Now this person presents to me with this disease and I believe they MUST need this nutrient. However, if the body does not respond well energetically, it may be doing nothing for them. But, test at a later date, it may help them. It all depends on what the priorities of healing are at that particular time.
Who can use the machine?
I can hook anyone up to the machine. I can even have an infant, a hyperactive child, or an animal. The patient does not necessarily need to be hooked directly to the machine, as the machine detects the energy of the patient even at a distance. It is safe and gentle for anyone to use.
I can honestly say that this machine has made a big difference to the results in my practice. It confirms my suspicions and gives much insight into the patient’s healing needs. Patients get to see a deeper and more detailed picture of their mental and physical health and make changes to their health more consciously.
Find Truth Rather than CHange
As humans, we are naturally going to make mistakes, behave in ways that we later regret, and harm ourselves or others whether intentionally or unintentionally. We are always striving to get better and change ourselves and this can be an ongoing lifelong battle. Some people are trying to overcome an addiction – whether to a substance, thoughts, relationships. The one thing that all these behaviours have in common is they are all a sign of disconnect to one’s True Self. We have this belief that we need to change, that we are imperfect. This is a lie. We are perfect as we are; we just don’t see it most of the time.
All the efforts that we are trying to make to change ourselves could be non-existent, if we just connected to our inner truth. Our inner Self. Our highest Self. This may sound intangible or all that might be going through your mind is “how??”
When you are battling that thought, that behaviour, that emotion, that person – stop and realize what’s really going on here:
You are a spiritual being living in a human body to experience life so that you can elevate your consciousness and grow as a soul. This human body is impermanent - your soul lives beyond this body, has lived many lives, and will live many more. You are an Infinite Being. This body is standing on the place we call Earth, which is a tiny ball spinning in a vast and gigantic universe. Does this moment that you are battling right now, really matter? Can you let go and be at peace, right now?
Once you realize the truth of who you are, and why you are here, and that you are one with the Universe, all those battles will dissipate. Instead of trying to control and change yourself and others, the truth of who you are will radiate. This radiance will affect all those around you. Others will sense your peacefulness because you have found it within. Your whole external world will change, because you found yourSelf.
Contemplate, contemplate, contemplate....this is how you can reach the truth. Sit alone, in nature, in a place you can call your sanctuary. Meditate, whether in a group setting, or at home with a guided meditation. Be in the moment of every situation, and remember who you are. Watch the physical world as if you are watching from the outside. Be in your body, interact with the world, but do not be attached, as it is only a game. This is how you will find peace.
