So there was a little snow and a little ice and the temperature was already a little above freezing.
I parked in the parking lot at my hypnosis office in Milford Ct. As I was carefully walking through the lot I thought to myself, “I am so surprised this hasn’t been shoveled or even had ice melt put on it.”
I could hear “that tone” of my voice inside my head. “That tone” has bit me in the butt too many times over my life. When I was in high school the teachers used to say to me, “Miss Pratt, watch that tone.” I had no idea what they were talking about.
I have a dear male friend who early on in our relationship used to say me, “It’s your tone.” I had no idea what he was talking about.
I was aggravated with my son one day (only one day-LOL-so many more than one day!) and I really wanted to dig deep and discover what it was inside of me that was so disturbed. I have this understanding of knowing when life is doing this, we can check in and decide if it’s really about them or really about us. I knew this time was really about me. I realized it was “his tone”. I had no idea what I was hearing inside my own head.
I was aggravated with my daughter one day (only one day-LOL-so many more than one day!) and I really wanted to dig deep and discover what it was inside of me that was so disturbed. As I mentioned in the previous paragraph, I have this understanding of knowing when life is doing this, we can check in and decide if it’s really about them or really about us. I knew this time was really about me. I realized it was “her tone”. I had no idea what I was hearing inside my own head.
So, back to this morning. I had already brought all my stuff up to my office and was settling in. I happened to look in the mirror and noticed I didn’t have any earrings in. I wanted to have earrings in. I remembered I had a pair in my car.
So I took the three flights of stairs down to my car. I went to my car, got my earrings and stepped back into the building.
One of the tenants came along. Well, she really isn’t just a tenant to me. I’m older now so it’s ok for me to say, I think she’s adorable! And she is so very pregnant and only 5 months! All belly! I remember those days. It seems so long ago; 29 and 27 years ago to be exact.
- “Do you see it?” Ashley asked me. “See what?”
- “You probably don’t see it. It’s probably really not there.”
- “You mean those two hearts in the parking lot?” I asked her.
- “You see it!? It’s really there!?”
“I see a lot of things – I’m a Hypnotist! Yes, those two hearts are really there! Take a picture! Post it! I’m running upstairs to get my phone to take a picture! Thank you for making my morning.” I sincerely replied as I headed for the stairs.
Last night before going upstairs to bed, I reached into my work bag and I pulled out my copy of Gabby Bernstein’s book, May Cause Miracles. I almost put it back because I was so physically exhausted and really needed to get horizontal.
I read, “Today I am willing to see things differently. Today I am willing to change my mind. I know a simple shift in perception will create a miraculous shift. I know change is what I need. I surrender, I am willing, I am ready to see love.” With that I closed my eyes and went into a much needed restful sleep.
A little snow, a little ice, “forgotten” earrings, a very adorable pregnant Ashley, two hearts in the parking lot, and the willingness to see love came to fruition.
Instead of hating myself for “that tone”. Instead of hating myself for passing “that tone” onto my kids. Instead, I was willing to see things differently. I was willing to change my mind.
I knew a simple shift in perception would give me a miraculous shift. I knew change was what I needed.
I surrendered, I was willing and I was ready to see love.
Love showed up in a way that was better than I could have possibly imagined and I am grateful.
That is self hypnosis in its finest!
What thoughts are you taking to bed with you? Isn’t it nice when we think better thoughts?
Let’s get together and enable you to see things differently.
