Thank you to all of you who once again nominated me since 2018 in Natural Nutmeg Magazine 10BEST Readers’ Choice Awards! I feel such deep seated love, gratitude, and tremendous joy for each one of you.
Touching one life creates the ripple effect of touching many other lives. In my mind’s eyes, it’s like seeing infinite strings of lights. You know, strings of lights that we use for decorating! Those of you who know me, know “I see”. Sight is my strongest sense, it’s a sense of sight within my inner environment and the outer environment of the world supplies me with endless visuals.
I see each one of you as you may so bravely reach out to me for a complimentary phone conversation.
I see you and I hear you. I literally am wildly taking notes on the phone. I am writing down what you are saying to me. It is often a conversation of a wounded soul seeking validation. ‘Yes, you are ok. You are not broken. You do not need to be fixed.’ Perhaps fear is the absence of love. So, we begin filling your love tank from the very depth of your being as you discover there is a river of life flowing through you and you do have limitless courage, compassion and wisdom for yourself and others. Is it easy? No! Is it worth it? Yes! Yikes, did I digress? Again? I do that.
So, back to all of you. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
I was recently reminded by two clients of mine that they began with me back in 2009 when I was training for certification as a hypnotist. They were reminiscing about meeting with me as volunteers in the finished basement of the condo I had been living in at the time. That was 14 years ago!! They are two of the many of you who prove over and over that hypnosis works.
This life is very challenging, and we don’t have to go it alone. I have tremendous admiration for all of you who sit in the client chair in my office. It’s not a magic chair but somehow someway when someone’s butt cheeks settle into that leather cushion for the first time, they often end up saying, “Oh my gosh. I’m so sorry. Was I supposed to say all of that?” Absolutely, you were supposed to say what was just right for you. It is such a literal stress relief response to get it all out.
I often say to you, “I understand.” as you are trusting me with your most scary thoughts. I truly do understand because I too am living life on planet earth and it ain’t easy. Tremendous suffering and pain in our lifetime bring tremendous understanding seasoned with compassion for another human being. We are human beings, trying like hell to “be” in this being on planet earth – sometimes we just have to laugh and allow a sense of humor to lighten us up or enlighten us for that matter. Even like strings of lights within us!
Many of you contact me because you feel the invitation of my tagline, “When nothing else has worked…consider hypnosis.” Most of you leave each and every session feeling better than when you walked in the door. We may engage in soul wrenching work with gentle techniques helping to regulate your system to a calmer state even though you have this problem, these difficult memories, difficult experiences, challenges that you never asked for. Becoming more and more comfortable in your own skin. Participating in the unlearning process and embarking on creating new habits that give you the liberation you have been so desperately seeking.
Bottom line, it’s all about you. The one who is brave enough to reach out while considering hypnosis for a change.
I don’t take this award lightly. There are many hypnotists out there. Some of us are seasoned with years of practicing our skills and techniques with a proven track record of successfully helping people and some are just beginning. Each hypnotist is a unique individual and brings that into sessions with their clients. Personalities vary, techniques vary, session fees vary, offering in person in a professional office or in a home office and offering remote hypnosis or online hypnosis enables us to meet with people all over the world. I see clients in New Zealand, Canada, Alabama, Maine, Massachusetts, Michigan, New York, New Jersey, North Carolina, and I could go on.
This award reminds me of my relentless passion for helping people with the techniques of relaxation and visualization hypnosis, NLP neuro-linguistic programming, EFT emotional freedom techniques and other proven energy techniques. I am present with you. Sometimes laughing, sometimes crying, and always celebrating You.
This award echoes the truth that together we are getting the message out there that hypnosis is a viable mainstream option to help lessen suffering in safe effective ways quicker and easier and backed up by science and the test of time.
I am grateful to all of you for believing in me and touching my life with yours. May we continue to spread strings of light within ourselves and to the lives of others. With deep seated love, gratitude, and tremendous joy for each of you, I say thank you, thank you, thank you.
