Shame on You for Shaming Us

I particularly wanted to talk about hypnosis today, but didn’t have a clear idea of just what I wanted to say about it.  So I got out the OH Cards again to see where they might take me, and how I can relate it to hypnosis.  (Note the picture to this blog which shows the word card – Shame – framing  the picture card.) Let’s see where this goes. As I look at the picture, it appears to be two people looking out the front window of a car.  There is a Yield sign ahead, clearly a road veering off to the right, a not-so-clear road ahead, and a rear view mirror with nothing...

Victim or Vulnerable?

I am new to this blogging business, so the first three blogs were actually articles I had written for local magazines and a newspaper.  So now it’s time to post another blog, and all I can do is ask myself, “Now what?” Well, I am fortunate enough to have a wise friend who knows that I often use OH Cards as a means of accessing the subconscious mind in order to work through problematic issues.  She encouraged me to use these cards as inspiration for my blogs.  I am following up on her suggestion with this blog. These OH Cards consist of two decks of 88 cards each.  One...

Body Follows Mind

The body is a robot. It does what the mind tells it to do. Imagine a large yellow lemon, one that is very heavy for its size because it is very, very juicy. It is so full of juice that once the skin is broken, juice will come pouring out over the sides of the lemon. The juice of this lemon is extremely sour. Just imagine the lemon sliced in half, with the juice dripping over the sides. You might even want to imagine testing the sourness of this lemon by bringing it up to your mouth, and sinking your teeth down into the pulp of the lemon, bringing the sour juice into your mouth and allowing it to...

Inside Job

Peace of Mind is an Inside Job. This phrase appears on all letterhead, brochures, and flyers that are sent out from Hypnotherapy One. It is a phrase that describes what has occurred in hypnotherapy when people have accessed their great inner wisdom; an inner wisdom we all possess, yet all too often lose sight of in our process of coping and surviving in our material world. Our “outer” world seems to correspond to the process of our “inner” world.  One example of an “inside job” that occurs in hypnotherapy is discovering and releasing old tapes (belief systems)...

Past Life Regression

What is really happening when hypnotherapy clients regress to time eras of the past as different personalities? Are they really experiencing a life lived prior to their current incarnation? Does their soul/spirit really reincarnate from one lifetime to another? Or are they accessing information from their DNA? Or are they tapping into what Edgar Cayce (known as the Sleeping Prophet) called the Akashic Records, the place where all thoughts, words, events and situations are recorded? Or are they tapping into what Carl Jung referred to as the Collective Unconscious? Or is it simply the method in which...
