WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A HYPNOTHERAPIST

GREETINGS! TODAY-BEING 20 YEARS SINCE MY CANCER SURGERY, I TRULY UNDERSTAND WHY MY PASSION FOR HYPNOSIS BECAME SO POWERFULL. IT HELPED TO SAVE MY LIFE AND ALSO GAVE ME A HIGHER QUALITY LIFE. AS I MOVE MORE INTO A TEACHING PHASE, I HOPE TO SHOW  MY STUDENTS HOW IMPORTANT THIS PROFESSION REALLY IS.

WHAT DOES IT REALLY MEAN TO BE A HYPNOTHERAPIST(OR CONSULTING HYPNOTIST). WELL, I CAN GIVE YOU MY VERSION OF IT AND IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT HYPNOSIS AS A CAREER, I HOPE THIS IS HELPFUL TO YOU.

1. COMPASSION. I THINK COMPASSION IS THE MOST ESSENTIAL INGREDIENT. THERE IS ALWAYS A REASON FOR YOUR CLIENT’S PAIN AND ITS OUR JOB TO HELP THEM TO FIND A SOLUTION. WITHOUT COMPASSION, SMALL IMPORTANT DETAILS CAN BE MISSED OR DISMISSED. KINDNESS MEANS EVERYTHING.

2. TOTAL FOCUS ON THE CLIENT. THE DEDICATED HYPNOTHERAPIST PUTS ALL FOCUS ON THE CLIENT (EXCEPT FOR A GOOD STORY NOW AND THEN TO MAKE A POINT). IT FEELS GREAT BY THE WAY, TO FORGET ABOUT YOURSELF IN ORDER TO GUIDE SOMEONE ELSE.

3. FORGET THE JUDGEMENT. WE ARE NOT HYPNOTHERAPISTS TO JUDGE OR BE NEGATIVE IN ANY WAY TOWARD OUR CLIENTS. WE MUST BE OPEN MINDED AS WE DEAL WITH PEOPLE FROM MANY DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS AND WITH MANY DIFFERENT ISSUES. IT IS IMPORTANT TO WORK WITH THE CLIENT’S BELIEF SYSTEM , NOT OUR OWN.

4. EXPECT GREAT RESULTS. THE WELL TRAINED HYPNOTIST CAN EXPECT THEIR CLIENTS TO BE SUCCESSFUL. AFTER ALL, THERE IS NOTHING LIKE THE POWER OF OUR OWN MINDS TO HELP US TO MAKE A CHANGE. THE LAW OF ATTRACTION IN ACTION! FOCUS ON GOOD RESULTS AND THATS WHAT YOU GET.

5.CLEAR YOUR OWN ISSUES. TO BE AN OUTSTANDING GUIDE, ONE HAS TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. REGULAR CLEARINGS THROUGH SELF HYPNOSIS AND SESSIONS WITH OTHER HYPNOTISTS  IS A MUST DO.

6.CONTINUE TO BE INSPIRED. UPDATING OUR KNOWLEDGE WITH SEMINARS, CONVENTIONS, BOOKS ETC. KEEPS THE WORK EXCITING AND NEW.

7. WHAT ABOUT MONEY AND COMPETITION? WELL, THERE ARE MANY OPINIONS ON THIS ONE. HERE IS MINE. I FEEL NO PARTICULAR NEED TO BE COMPETITIVE. A LOT OF PEOPLE NEED OUR SERVICES AND IF WE DO A GOOD JOB, IT IS NOT FORGOTTEN. IF WE THINK ABUNDANCE,IT COMES TO US (LAW OF ATTRACTION AGAIN). BEING A MASTER AT MARKETING AND UP TO DATE WITH THE TIMES IS A GOOD THING ,ALWAYS KEEPING IN MIND TO BE REPECTFUL TO OTHER HYPNOTISTS IN YOUR AREA.

I HOPE THIS HELPS ALL OF YOU OUT THERE WHO ARE SERIOUSLY THINKING ABOUT STUDYING THIS GREAT WORK. IF I CAN HELP YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY, MY NEXT COURSE STARTS IN MAY. THE EXACT DATE WILL BE POSTED ON MY WEBSITE. SIGNING OFF. WANDA

A WARRIOR FOR PEACE

FOR MANY YEARS I HAVE THOUGHT OF THE WORD ‘WARRIOR’ AS SOMETHING DIFFERENT THEN A FIGHTER. THE WORLD IS FULL OF FIGHTING. THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER, EVIL, POVERTY, THE FIGHTS BETWEEN COUNTRIES, POLITICAL PARTIES, FAMILY MEMBERS AND THE LIST GOES ON AND ON. MOTHER TERESA WAS ONCE INVITED TO A DEMONSTRATION AGAINST WAR AND SHE REFUSED. SHE SAID SHE WOULD BE HAPPY TO ATTEND A DEMONTRATION FOR PEACE.  AS A CANCER PATIENT, I REFUSED TO JOIN THE FIGHT AGAINST CANCER BECAUSE THE FIGHT WOULD TAKE AWAY ALL THAT ENERGY I NEEDED TO HEAL. I CHOSE GENTLE OVER AGRESSIVE AND PEACE OVER CONFLICT. THE ANCIENT TOLTECS (200 BC-850 AD) HAD A WONDERFUL CONCEPT OF THE WARRIOR. GUILLERMO MARIN RUIZ WROTE- THE TOLTEC WARRIOR DOES NOT TURN TO THE BATTLE FIELD TO FIGHT OTHERS BUT INSTEAD WITH ‘FLOWER AND SONG’ AS HIS WEAPONS, BATTLES HIS OWN ‘SMALL SELF’ IN ORDER TO GAIN TRANSCENDENCE OVER IT AND THUS REINTRGRATE WITH THE SPIRIT. HE ALSO WROTE- A WARRIORS IRON WILL AND STRENGTH OF DETERMINATION WERE DERIVED DIRECTLY FROM THE UNDERSTANDING OF HIS TRUE NATURE, HIS MISSION ON THE EARTH, HIS UNLIMITED POSSIBILITIES AS SPIRIT, AND THE HIGHEST LEVELS OF CONSCIOUSNESS. HOW BEAUTIFUL!, AND TRUE WARRIORS FOR PEACE,  (ALTHOUGH I WOULD HAVE ALSO ADDED ‘SHE’.) THERE ARE MANY WARRIORS FOR PEACE IN OUR WORLD AND MY GREATEST HOPE AND DREAM IS THAT THERE WILL BE MANY MORE. I WISH A PEACEFUL NEW YEAR FOR US ALL. WANDA

 

RECONNECTIVE HEALING

I AM VERY HAPPY AND EXCITED TO TELL EVERYONE WHO IS INTERESTED ABOUT MY LATEST AND ONE OF MY GREATEST LEARNING EXPERIENCES. MANY YEARS AGO I WALKED INTO A BOOK STORE IN TORONTO AND IT WAS SO HUGE, I FELT OVERWHELMED. I ASKED THE GREAT POWERS OF THE LIGHT TO GUIDE ME TO THE BOOK WHICH WOULD TRULY AFFECT MY LIFE IN A POSITIVE WAY. I IMMEDIATLY WALKED OVER TO A SHELF AND PULLED OUT THE BOOK BY DR. ERIC PEARL CALLED THE RECONNECTION-HEAL OTHERS, HEAL YOURSELF. I WAS VERY IMPRESSED AND MOVED BY ITS CONTENTS. THIS MONTH I FINALLY WENT TO A RECONNECTION SEMINAR TO LEARN FROM DR. PEARL HIMSELF AND I AM NOW BUSY PRACTISING RECONNECTIVE HEALING AND GETTING READY FOR LEVEL 3 IN JANUARY. THIS WORK INVOLVES THE HEALING FREQUENCIES OF LIGHT, ENERGY AND INFORMATION AND HELPS PEOPLE RETURN TO A STATE OF BALANCE AND HARMONY.  IF YOU FIND THIS INTERESTING, CHECK OUT ERIC PEARL ON YOUTUBE. I ALSO WELCOME YOU TO CALL FOR A RECONNECTIVE HEALING SESSION IF YOU LIVE IN THE REGINA AREA. THIS IS NEW, EXCITING AND POWERFUL. I WISH HEALING FOR YOU ALL. WANDA

 

THE SUPER SENSITIVE (SS) PERSON

WELCOME! WHAT A SPECIAL GIFT BEING A SUPER SENSITIVE PERSON TRULY IS. THE TROUBLE IS, MOST PEOPLE WHO ARE SS THINK OF IT AS SOMEWHAT OF A CURSE. AS A CHILD WITHOUT A LOT OF KNOWLEDGE OF THE WORLD, A HURT AND BROKEN HEART CAN BE THEIR CONSTANT COMPANION. THE NASTINESS OF THE WORLD CAN BE OVERWHELMING WHEN THE CHILD DOES NOT RECOGNIZE HIS OR HER OWN ABILILITY TO DEAL WITH IT. SS ARE OFTEN THOUGHT OF AS WEAK OR WIMPY AND OFTEN START TO BELIEVE THAT THEMSELVES. THE SCHOOL SYSTEM WAS NOT BUILT WITH THIS TYPE OF PERSON IN MIND AND THEIR TRUE GIFTS CAN BE UNSEEN AND UNHEARD. SOME OF THE QUALITIES OF A SS ARE: CREATIVE ABILITIES OF MANY KINDS.-A COMPASSION FOR THOSE WHO ARE LESS FORTUNATE.- HIGHLY EMOTIONAL.- AN ABILITY TO FEEL WHAT SOMEONE ELSE IS FEELING.-AN ABILITY TO PICK UP ENERGY THAT NO ONE ELSE IS AWARE OF.- OFTEN HAS SOME PSYCHIC ABILITY.-OFTEN HAS A STRONG SENSE OF JUSTICE.-HAS A GREAT ABILITY TO LOVE AND FORGIVE. IF THESE ABILITIES ARE NOURISHED ,THE SS CAN BE A TOTAL GIFT TO SOCIETY AND THOSE THEY WORK WITH , PLAY WITH AND LIVE WITH. IF HOWEVER THESE AMAZING ABILITIES ARE UNSEEN BY OTHERS AND THEMSELVES THEY MAY LIVE THEIR LIFE LIKE A SEED THAT HAS NEVER SPROUTED AND EMERGED INTO THE LIGHT OF THEIR TRUE SELVES. BUILDING HEALTHY BOUNDERIES IS ESSENTIAL FOR THE SS TO SURVIVE THIS EARTH PLANE AND OF COURSE IT IS NEVER TOO LATE TO GET NOURISHED AND TO GROW. AS A HYPNOTHERAPIST, I HAVE WORKED WITH MANY SS AND HAVE HAD THE GREAT PLEASURE TO  WATCH THEM BLOOM.  TO ALL YOU SS WHO READ THIS, I SEND YOU LOVE. WANDA

 

 

OLD AGE CRISIS

PEOPLE OFTEN TALK ABOUT MID LIFE CRISIS, BUT WHAT ABOUT OLD AGE CRISIS? ONE WOULD THINK THERE WAS MORE TO BE IN CRISIS ABOUT AT AGE 65 AND OVER. OUR WHOLE LIFE’S WORK IS SUPPOSE TO BE OVER, WE ARE THOUGHT OF AS MUCH LESS ATTRACTIVE AND OF COURSE ABSENT MINDED. WOMAN IN PARTICULAR BECOME INVISABLE UNLESS THEY HAPPEN TO BE FAMOUS OR WEALTHY OR BOTH. (AND SOMETIMES THAT DOESN’T WORK). IT BECOMES ACCEPTABLE FOR OLDER MEN TO FIND A YOUNGER WOMAN BUT THERE ARE STRANGE AND NEGATIVE NAMES GIVEN TO WOMAN WHO ARE WITH YOUNGER MEN. NOW HAVING TURNED 65 THIS YEAR WITHOUT BEING ABSENT MINDED OR FEELING OLD, IT HAS BEEN INTERESTING OBSERVING THE REACTIONS OF OTHERS TO MY NEW STATUS AS SENIOR CITIZEN. I WOULD LIKE TO POINT OUT SOME BENEFITS OF MY NEW POSITION.   1. A NICE CHEQUE FROM THE GOVERNMENT EACH MONTH 2. NO MORE ANNOYING ADVANCES FROM MUCH OLDER MEN. 3 WHEN YOUR INVISABLE , YOU DON’T HAVE TO PERFORM, YOU CAN RELAX AND WATCH THE SHOW. 4. YOU CAN SIT IN A RESTAURANT BY YOURSELF AND KNOW YOU ARE IN GOOD COMPANY. 5. YOU CAN BE COMFORTABLE WITH YOUR TRUE SELF ,ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE DONE THE WORK(SUCH AS HYPNOSIS OR MEDITATION). 6. YOU HAVE THE ABILITY TO KNOW WHO IS FULL OF IT AND WHO IS AUTHENTIC AFTER LOTS OF HITS AND MISSES . 7. YOU USUALLY CHOOSE TO BE GENTLE VERSES AGRESSIVE BECAUSE YOU KNOW IT WORKS BETTER. 8. YOU MIGHT BE AMUSED BY THE YOUNGER WOMAN WHO OBSERVES AN OLDER WOMAN BEING BELITTLED OR ABUSED BECAUSE YOU KNOW THAT ONE DAY THEY WILL WAKE UP AGE 65. 9. YOU REALLY START LISTENING TO YOUR BODY BECAUSE IT SPEAKS TO YOU LOUD AND CLEAR. 10. YOU MAY HAVE A WONDERFUL APPRECIATION OF YOURSELF FOR BEING MORE SELECTIVE AND LETTING GO OF THOSE WHO ARE HOSTILE, UNLOVING, RUTHLESSLY AMBITIOUS OR JUST PLAIN RUDE.  OF COURSE THERE ARE MORE LIKE WISDOM AND POWER WHICH ARE LIKE MAGICAL LITTLE GIFTS FOR SURVIVING SO LONG. THIS SENIOR IS OFF TO THE WEST COAST TO LEARN FROM ERIC PEARL IN HIS RECONNECTIVE HEALING SEMINAR.  I WISH YOU ALL GOOD HEALTH AND HAPPINESS. WANDA

PARTS MEDIATION

WARM GREETINGS TO YOU ALL. MANY YEARS AGO WHEN I TOOK MY FIRST NLP TRAINING (NEUROLINGUISTIC PROGRAMMING) , THE WHOLE IDEA OF PARTS OF THE MIND WAS COMPLETELY NEW TO ME. THIS HAS BEEN CONFUSED WITH MULTIPLE PERSONALITY DISORDER BUT IT IS REALLY THE NORMAL PARTS OF A HEALTHY MIND THAT I AM REFERRING TO. WE HAVE PARTS THAT ARE IN CHARGE OF BAD HABITS LIKE SMOKING, OVER EATING, FEAR OR INSECURITY ETC. WE ALSO HAVE PARTS THAT ARE WISE (HIGHER SELF) ORGANIZED, HUMEROUS OR BRAVE ETC. SOME HYPNOTISTS HAVE SPECIAL TRAINING IN THIS AREA CALLED PARTS MEDIATION AND INTEGRATION AS I DO. WHAT A GREAT WAY TO WORK WITH CLIENTS! IF WE DON’T KNOW WHY A PART IS ACTING OUT, THEN WHY NOT ASK IT, NEGOTIATE WITH IT AND FIND A SOLUTION. FOR EXAMPLE, WHEN A PART WANTS TO SMOKE IT USUALLY WANTS RELAXATION OR RELIEF FROM BOREDOM ETC. ITS LIKE AN OLD PROGRAM STUCK BACK IN TIME AND IT IS  OFTEN ACTING LIKE A REBELLIOUS TEEN-AGER. WHEN A SMOKER VISITS A HYPNOTIST, THEY CLEARLY HAVE A PART THAT WANTS TO BE A NON SMOKER AND THE BATTLE OF THE TWO PARTS RAGES ON.  AN UNDERSTANDING AND COOPERATION DONE WITH KINDNESS VERSES ANGER IS ESSENTIAL FOR SUCCESS. ONE CAN COMPARE A HEALTHY MIND TO A HEALTHY FAMILY, WHERE THERE IS LOVE AND CONSIDERATION AND RESPECT FOR EACH OTHER. I WELCOMED ANY COMMENTS OR QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS IMPORTANT WORK. HAVE A JOYFUL WEEK. WANDA

INTEGRATION OF THE HIGHER SELF AND SHADOW

GREETINGS! I WILL BEGIN BY TELLING YOU MY STORY OF HIGHER SELF MEETING AND JOINING FORCES WITH THE SHADOW. MY CANCER DIAGNOSIS WAS PRETTY INTENSE 18 YEARS AGO AND ONE DOCTOR TOLD ME I WOULD PROBABLY NOT MAKE IT PAST A YEAR. I WAS CONCERNED THAT MY FEAR WOULD TOTALLY INTERFERE WITH MY HEALING. MY SHADOW WAS CRAWLING ON THE GROUND IN FEAR BUT MY HIGHER SELF WAS FLOATING AND SEEMED FEARLESS. WHEN THE TWO CAME TOGETHER ,MY HIGHER SELF PICKED UP MY SHADOW AND AS THEY BOTH STOOD ON THE GROUND IT FELT LIKE THE PERFECT COMBINATION OF SENSIBLE AND SPIRITUAL. I HAD ENOUGH FEAR TO TAKE ACTION AND ENOUGH SPIRITUAL LIGHT TO HAVE COURAGE AND MY LIFE WAS FOREVER CHANGED. (AND VERY MUCH HEALED). YOU MAY FEEL READY NOW TO LET YOUR HIGHER SELF JOIN FORCES WITH YOUR SHADOW.( PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS EXERCISE IS MEANT FOR HEALTHY MINDED PEOPLE WITH NORMAL EVERY DAY KINDS OF PROBLEMS). TAKE A DEEP BREATH AND CLOSE YOUR EYES AND WATCH FEEL AND LISTEN. WHATEVER HAPPENS OR DOES NOT HAPPEN IS AS IT SHOULD BE FOR NOW. FOR SOME PEOPLE IT IS LIKE THE SUNRISE OF THE SOUL AND FOR OTHERS IT IS JUST THE BEGINNING OF AN INTERESTING EXPLORATION. PARTS MEDIATION AND INTEGRATION IS THE WORK OF MANY HYPNOTHERAPISTS, INCLUDING MYSELF. THE RESULTS OF THIS WORK IS OUTSTANDING. MORE ON THAT SUBJECT NEXT WEEK. MAY THE LIGHT BE WITH YOU, WANDA

 

THE SHADOW PART 2

WELCOME BACK! THE WHOLE IDEA ABOUT THE SHADOW IS NOT NEW. CARL JUNG TALKED ABOUT IT AND HE SAID THIS; ATTENTIVE DETECTION AND CONSCIOUS INTEGRATION OF THE SHADOW WOULD SEEM TO OFFER A GENUINE SOLUTION TO TAMING THE DARKER ASPECTS OF HUMANITY AS WELL AS HARNESSING ITS HIGHEST POTENTIALS, ESPECIALLY IF WILLINGLY PRACTISED BY A GROWING PERCENTAGE OF THE WORLD POPULATION. EVEN DIANNA TROY ON STAR TREK TALKED ABOUT IT AND SHE CALLED IT A HEALTHY EXPLORATION. THERE ARE ALSO SOME GOOD BOOKS ABOUT THE SHADOW AND I HIGHLY RECOMMEND A BOOK CALLED ‘ THE DARK SIDE OF THE LIGHT CHASERS’ BY DEBBIE FORD. IF YOU HAVEN’T EXPLORED YOUR SHADOW YET ,YOU CAN TRY IT ON YOUR OWN, READ THE BOOK OR HAVE SOME HYPNOSIS SESSIONS. JUST AS THE HIGHER SELF CAN APPEAR VISUALLY, SO CAN THE SHADOW. IT TAKES COURAGE TO DO THIS WORK BUT WHEN WE DO, WE OPEN OURSELVES UP TO HEALING, SELF ACCEPTANCE AND LOVE. WHEN THE NIGHT COMES TO OUR EARTH, PLANTS ANIMALS AND PEOPLE REST AND THEN THE LIGHT OF DAY APPEARS AND THIS BRINGS GROWTH AND AWARENESS. SUCH IS THE BALANCE OF NATURE INSIDE AND OUTSIDE OF OURSELVES. TO CREATE THE BALANCE WITHIN, THE HIGHER SELF AND THE SHADOW NEED TO COMMUNICATE. MORE ON THAT TOPIC NEXT WEEK. SENDING HEALING WISHES TO YOU ALL, WANDA

 

THE HIGHER SELF AND THE SHADOW

OVER THE YEARS IN HYPNOSIS SESSIONS WITH CLIENTS, I HAVE HAD THE GREAT PRIVILAGE TO BE PRESENT AS  PEOPLE BECAME AWARE OF THEIR HIGHER SELVES. IT HAS OFTEN BEEN PROFOUND AND SPIRITUAL. I EXPLORED THIS PART OF MYSELF IN GREAT DETAIL 18 YEARS AGO WHEN I WENT THROUGH A CANCER CRISIS. I FOUND STRENGTH AND COURAGE THAT I DIDN’T KNOW EXISTED WITHIN ME.  I AM ALWAYS GRATEFUL TO HER AND MAKE A POINT OF COMMUNICATING WITH HER OFTEN. DURING THIS PROCESS I ALSO DISCOVERED MY SHADOW. YES INDEED, WE ALL HAVE ONE OF THOSE, BUT DON’T DISPAIR. OUR SHADOW IS VERY MISUNDERSTOOD AND OFTEN IGNORED WITH ANGER. OUR SHADOWS GIVE US ALL OF THOSE FEELINGS THAT WE ARE NOT FOND OF SUCH AS FEAR ,SADNESS, WORRY, ETC. WE LOVE TO IGNORE FEELINGS THAT ARE NEGATIVE AND WE KNOW THAT DOESN’T WORK. GETTING IN TOUCH WITH SHADOW PARTS ALLOWS PEOPLE TO UNDERSTAND THE BALANCE OF THE DARK AND LIGHT AND THE IMPORTANCE OF COMMUNICATING WITH BOTH SIDES. MOST OF US ARE BETTER THEN WE THINK SO IT IS OFTEN A PLEASENT SURPISE TO DISCOVER THE POSITIVE ASPECTS OF THIS UNEXPLORED TERRITORY.

I AM OFF TO THE GREAT NGH CONVENTION FOR 10 DAYS OF LEARNING. CHECK IN 2 WEEKS FROM NOW FOR THE SHADOW PART 2.  WARM BLESSINGS, WANDA

 

THE HIGHER SELF – PART 2

IF YOU ARE NOT VERY VISUAL AND MORE KINESTHETIC (FEELINGS) , YOU MAY GET A PARTICULAR WONDERFUL FEELING FROM YOUR HIGHER SELF WITHOUT A VISUAL IMAGE.  PERHAPS THE FEELING OF GREAT WISDOM, COMPASSION, FEARLESSNESS AND POWER COME THROUGH. MAYBE YOUR HIGHER SELF IS SENSIBLE OR HAS A WONDERFUL SENSE OF HUMOR. MY OWN HIGHER SELF RADIATES WITH WARMTH AND FUN AND CHOOSES TO FOCUS ON THOSE QUALITIES EVEN WHEN LIFE GETS TOUGH. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO ALL OF THE FEELINGS BECAUSE YOU OWN THESE WONDERFUL QUALITIES AND IT IS AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR EXISTANCE.

SOME PEOPLE ARE VERY AUDITORY AND SENSITIVE TO THE VOICE MESSAGES OF THEIR HIGHER SELF. LISTEN CAREFULLY AND TAKE THESE MESSAGES SERIOUSLY AS THEY ARE USUALLY FULL OF GOOD ADVICE WHICH OTHERWISE CAN BE IGNORED AND LOST. THIS WISDOM IS DEEP AND MEANINGFUL.  NOW THAT YOU HAVE SEEN OR FELT OR HEARD YOUR HIGHER SELF OR ALL THREE (WOW), YOU CAN PUT HIM OR HER IN CHARGE OF YOUR MOST IMPORTANT DECISIONS. THIS IS INSTINCT AT ITS BEST.  BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL UNTIL NEXT WEEK.
