I started exploring Hypnosis for Past Life Regression with Stacy just out of curiosity but the benefits I received were far-reaching and profound. I was surprised to find that if I trusted the process I could readily and easily go back to a past life experience and pick up from that some bit of knowledge or understanding that illuminated the path I am currently on. I found comfort in realizing that this current life, this experience, this body, this set of actions and reactions is not the be-all and end-all of my existence. It helped me ease off the idea of striving for perfection and the constant time pressure I used to feel – that feeling of not having enough time to get it all done and need to get it all done perfectly! It helped me accept my physical body and condition more and have gratitude for the vessel my spirit has been provided – knowing that has been different in the past and that it can and will change in the next life experience. At the same time, it kind of added a level of sincerity to my efforts and actions in this current life, having realized that I’ve had many past life opportunities and although some of them didn’t amount to much, I get to continue on and try again. Understanding and gratitude for this softened and deepened my approach to my endeavors and my relationships. It helped me realize the depth of my connection to all the people around me – the sense that we are all on a journey and that we’ve been connected throughout eternity and will continue on together in one way or another. Words and actions change when you realize that they don’t just evaporate into thin air once they are spoken or done. I am very grateful for the experiences I’ve had in Past Life Regressions with Stacy. In fact, one in particular is very special to me and I sometimes go back to that experience in my mind for stress relief and to focus my energy and regain balance in my life as it is today.
After class last night I was talking with the two women who were at the past lives workshop on Halloween and they said that after the workshop they had discussed their experiences with each other and the conclusion they came to was that they can’t wait to do it again! I don’t know if they told you this personally so I wanted to be sure to pass it along. One of them also mentioned that her brother-in-law was interested in coming to the next one as well. So all in all, it was a great success!
Have another outstandingly successful day!
Love and blessings to you!
I came to Stacy Renz for hyposis because I believe in hypnosis and Stacy's ability, intuition and compassion as a hypnotist to help me. During our session I was blown away at how right on she was with truly understanding my needs and desires for the session, sometimes even better than I could explain them, she was explaining them to me! I felt as if Stacy were right there in my session with me. Seeing what I was seeing and almost as if she was feeling what I was feeling. I had an extremely impactful session and when I left I felt as if I were 5lbs lighter! The results of my session with her have been long lasting and have given me permanent tools to work myself out of a "stuck" or emotionally uncomfortable state. Thank you Stacy, for your compassion, intuition and most importantly the permanent RESULTS I received from my session.
If I was ever going to have a binge week this was it. Website issues, an angry student, having to make a tough decision – it was a perfect storm of stress. And yet I didn't binge. Last Monday was the first in the series of Hypnosis for Weight Loss Support. One of the suggestions was to look down to the right before eating and ask yourself if you are truly hungry. If the answer is "no" you do something else instead of eating – deal with your emotions by napping, exercising, journaling or calling a friend. This worked! One time I actually got the answer, "No, you just have a lot of crap going on." I kid you not. As soon as I got this answer my hunger shifted and I was able to move on with my day.
When the answer is "Yes, you are hungry" you next look down to the left and ask, "What healthy food will keep me full and satisfied 30 minutes from now?" Then you look up the left and envision the healthy food you will eat. This worked too! What did not appear confirmed what I already know – that breads and cereals don't stay with me long. I need proteins and vegetables foremost.
When I shopped for groceries I did not consciously apply this technique, but I do think it influenced what I purchased. Next time I will consciously apply it , and I am sure I will make even better decisions. Hypnosis is such a powerful way to help the mind work for the highest good, the greatest ease. What an honor to share it with others. What a bonus that my work with others help me too,
I love suspense and mystery – Law and Order is my favorite show of this type. I think I like it so much because they do not typically show the violence. The emphasis is on solving the mystery, obtaining justice, and making me ponder issues that are not black and white. Today I made a decision to stop DVRing shows that emphasize violence. The new show Chase is a case in point, as is Criminal Mind. While watching Chase this morning I realized that the state of being it brought about was dark and heavy especially around my heart. DIS-ease. Who needs that? I have so many good things happening in my life – and details that require not only my full attention but a light heart, a positive aura, and EASE.
I also have been checking out the new show Mike and Molly, which is about two overweight people who begin dating after meeting at an Overeaters Anonymous meeting. I have also decided to stop watching it as it depicts violence of a different sort. The whole story line centers around fat jokes which I just cannot abide. The energy it brings me is not laughter but sadness and a feeling that it is just plain WRONG. To me it is merely emotional violence toward the actors playing the parts and people everywhere who struggle with holding onto too much weight. ICK.
Thinnervention with Jackie Warner is a show I am continuing to watch with mindfulness and caution. Just like with Biggest Loser Home Edition with Jillian or whatever it was called (which I could not stand even through one full episode) , I question taking obese people and putting them through extreme workouts – practically dragging them and whipping them through – to help them lose weight. Sure it is dramatic for television but will it have lasting effects? It feels violent and unrealistic to me, and unless the counseling sessions go much deeper than it shows on TV, the hidden beliefs and emotional reasons for eating do not seem to be adequately addressed. In fact the counselor today actually said, "Forget about the emotional reasons or thoughts, just say no." Has SHE ever struggled with her weight? That just seems STUPID to me. See I am getting very UNeasy just talking about it. I will probably see this one through to determine if I am wrong about it, but I am registering as officially UNEASY about these tactics.
I feel so much better than yesterday morning! What a difference a day makes! And a day spent with healers and taking proactive steps makes an even greater difference. First I had a hypnosis session with Andrea Crouch. My primary concern was how my appetite seemed to triple in the last week. I was worried that I would regain all the weight I have lost since February. It turns out, I was stuffing a lot of emotions and entertaining a lot of fears and beliefs I was unaware off:
- Feelings of being overwhelmed.
- Fear of losing my life/work balance.
- Fear that the feeling of overwhelm would never end.
- Fear that regaining weigh is inevitable.
My session excavated these things so that I could look at them. Looking at them allowed me to take proactive steps. I made a plan for how to control my schedule for next year (and even now) that would allow me enough down time to keep me balanced.
I also saw Rosie Warburton for my cranial sacral session. I LOVE CRANIAL SACRAL THERAPY. Her treatment eliminated the teeling of having a vice grip around my head. By the time I met with our finanical manager at 5pm I was feeling completely restored. And I felt even better to realize that all of our funds have recovered from the year of hell (2009). Ease was restored on many levels..
It is 9:21pm and I am just getting to this post! It was hard to zip off a post about ease this morning because I was feeling so conflicted about binging on pizza and merlot yesterday. It was the first such binge that I have engaged in since the beginning of my quest to lose 30 pounds back in February (a goal that I have met). I was feeling frustrated and over-tired and needy and my needs were not getting met. So I did everything I have taught myself NOT TO DO – eating out of frustration, anger, overwork, and self-consciousness. Being thin again has garnered me attention from men that I was not receiving before. While this can be flattering under the right circumstances, much of it has been in the course of my work. This I find annoying and distracting. And the man I really WANTED attention from (my husband) was caught up in work and sports this weekend. I felt one big ARGH. In a strange way this binge did bring me a sort of ease – but not one that I want to get used to. So it was an uneasy ease.
This morning when I attempted to write this post I feeling this conflict of uneasy ease and was hoping that today I would eat like a thin person again. I did. But I realize that I am still vulnerable to some of my old habits of eating for comfort so I feel like it is back to a one day at a time sort of diligence and consciousness about eating. And that is OK. Though I would prefer to be immune to these old habits, I choose to make peace with this fact of vulnerability and move on. I will address these issues in my hypnosis session this Friday with Andrea and in my cranial sacral session with Rosie. This brings me a slightly more easy ease. And on that note, good night!
It is Tuesday morning the day after Labor Day, and I am hoping that I will keep remembering that it is Tuesday and not Monday all day! A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of trading hypnosis sessions with Andrea Crouch. In my session I addressed some of my limiting beliefs about money. One of the most dominating images from that session is my easily rowing out to a big "ship" (more like a yacht) in the middle of the water, climbing aboard, and finding a captain's hat waiting to be donned by me. As I put on the hat I began to giggle with – slight discomfort, giddiness, anticipation, excitement.. But I did put it on and I did begin to steer the ship. I had this wide smile on my face as I steered the ship in the direction I wanted to go. No one else was aboard to help me steer. Just me.
This image and the feeling of it remains with me as I move into a new season and phase in my business life. As fall approaches I feel the pressure of the additional responsibilities – CEU classes I am teaching, teacher training weekend in two weeks, marketing and preparing for the advanced teacher training beginning in January. I move into these responsibilities with more consistent confidence and positive belief than ever due to consistent spiritual work – including hypnosis, yoga, my daily Gratitude, Intention, AfFORMation and Awareness practice, great healers and teachers in my life, eating nutritionally, and getting enough sleep. These elements will help me return to ease again and again throughout the challenges of the next year. So to these challenges I say, "Bring it. I am ready."
