NLP ~ Neuro-linguistic Programming ~ Plus Hypnosis

Hypnosis Demystified and Combined With Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)

Clear Negative Emotions

Girl Meditating on BeachAre you one of those people who thinks you cannot be hypnotized? SURPRISE! All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, AND you get into the hypnotic brainwave state at least twice a day in typical activities. You are in the hypnosis brainwave state when you enter that condition (known to some as “la-la land”) right before you fall asleep and again when you re-emerge from sleep while awakening – before you get to full consciousness. During meditation, you also are in a hypnotic state of mind. Let’s learn the benefits of combining a hypnosis process with Neuro-linguistic Programming (NL). I have many tools and techniques to use in personal coaching and spiritual counseling sessions, and I count hypnotherapy and NLP as key components among them.


We’ll give details below; but, first:

Did You Know The Catholic Church and the American Medical Association Endorse Hypnosis as a LegitimateTherapy?

Yes, they do! The Catholic Church accepted hypnotherapy in 1956, and the AMA did so in 1958.


What Are Some Statistics About the Effectiveness of Hypnotherapy and Neuro-linguistic Programming?

Master NLP Hypnosis Teacher, Dr. Yvonne OswaldMy Master NLP Teacher, Dr. Yvonne Oswald, who is the award-winning, best-selling author of Every Word Has Power, shared the following results from a research study.

  • About 38% of people who undergo psychoanalysis recover after 600 sessions. She points out you could get better results by talking with your friends!
  • About 72% of clients who undergo behavior therapy get better after 22 sessions.
  • An astounding 93% of people have noticeable improvement after 6 sessions in hypnosis; and, when you add NLP exercises, they have made great changes with only 1,  2 or 3 sessions.

That is an amazing savings of time, money, and grief and well worth trying.


Why Do You Care? Neuro-linguistic Programming Can Help You Overcome Fear, Guilt, Shame, Anger, Limiting Beliefs, PTSD, and More … Oh, There’s That!

Before we do an exercise, let’s understand more about what our conscious, subconscious, and unconscious minds process in various brainwave states. Hypnosis involves a brain-wave state just like everything else we do. Here’s how those states break down, according to BrainWorks. I urge you to read their whole article via the link just given.

At the root of all our thoughts, emotions and behaviours is the communication between neurons within our brains. Brainwaves are produced by synchronised electrical pulses from masses of neurons communicating with each other.Brainwave speed is measured in Hertz (cycles per second) and they are divided into bands delineating slow, moderate, and fast waves.

DELTA WAVES (.5 TO 3 HZ)

Delta brainwaves are slow, loud brainwaves (low frequency and deeply penetrating, like a drumbeat). They are generated in deepest meditation and dreamless sleep. Delta waves suspend external awareness and are the source of empathy. Healing and regeneration are stimulated in this state, and that is why deep restorative sleep is so essential to the healing process.

THETA WAVES (3 TO 8 HZ)

Theta brainwaves occur most often in sleep but are also dominant in deep meditation. Theta is our gateway to learning, memory, and intuition. In theta, our senses are withdrawn from the external world and focused on signals originating from within. It is that twilight state which we normally only experience fleetingly as we wake or drift off to sleep. In theta we are in a dream; vivid imagery, intuition and information beyond our normal conscious awareness. It’s where we hold our ‘stuff’, our fears, troubled history, and nightmares.

ALPHA WAVES (8 TO 12 HZ)

Alpha brainwaves are dominant during quietly flowing thoughts, and in some meditative states. Alpha is ‘the power of now’, being here, in the present. Alpha is the resting state for the brain. Alpha waves aid overall mental coordination, calmness, alertness, mind/body integration and learning.

BETA WAVES (12 TO 38 HZ)

Beta brainwaves dominate our normal waking state of consciousness when attention is directed towards cognitive tasks and the outside world. Beta is a ‘fast’ activity, present when we are alert, attentive, engaged in problem solving, judgment, decision making, or focused mental activity.

Beta brainwaves are further divided into three bands…. Read more in the article.

GAMMA WAVES (38 TO 42 HZ)

Gamma brainwaves are the fastest of brain waves (high frequency, like a flute), and relate to simultaneous processing of information from different brain areas. Gamma brainwaves pass information rapidly and quietly. The most subtle of the brainwave frequencies, the mind has to be quiet to access gamma….” Read more in the article about spiritual emergence.


Dr. Yvonne Offers An NLP Way To Clear Negative Emotions Quickly and Lastingly

image of girl cowering in fearMy teacher talks about when we are afraid, we run; and, when we can’t run, we must stand and fight. When we have to “fight,” we become angry in the Fight or Flight model.

She says she does not ask her clients why they feel depressed, but, rather, at whom they are angry. (They might be angry at someone else, at a situation, and/or at themselves.) Dr. Yvonne adds, “if you can’t clear the anger, you can’t clear the rest.”

 

(unhappy smiley face with thumbs downNote: guilt is feeling bad about ourselves because of something we are/did, etc.  Shame is a feeling we get from the attitudes or actions of others. She used the two together in the video below for teaching purposes; but, typically, in NLP, we clear only one emotional layer at a time.)


 

Mind Magic by Dr. Yvonne Oswald is an NLP Exercise

We’ll watch her go through it for us in the video. However, since she talks very fast, I’m giving you the words for the routine. Repeat each section three times.

  •     I Release the root cause of the anger and frustration and preserve the positive lessons for my health and benefit.
  •     I Release the root cause of sadness and hurt and preserve the positive lessons for my health and benefit.
  •     I Release the root cause of the fear and preserve the positive lessons for my health and benefit.
  •     I Release the root cause of the guilt and shame and preserve the positive lessons for my health and benefit.

Allergies, Symptoms, and Attitudes ~ Some Answers

Young woman examining her eyes - inflamed by allergiesWhat’s WRONG with me!  I was shocked to learn a person can get allergies at any age and that one in every five Americans experience them. In the USA, about 30% of all adults and 40% of children have allergies. The symptoms can range from annoying minor episodes to sudden and life-threatening occurrences. I wonder if it is significant that I did not experience symptoms until late in life. What changed and what can be done about it -medically and metaphysically? Hmmm. Continue reading

What Is HypnoBirthing®?

Sarojini (Sara)

Wikipedia says:

Hypnotherapy in childbirth refers to the use of hypnotherapy to assist in the birthing process. This practice, known as hypnobirthing, functions on the premise that most labour-related pain is the result of fear and tension, which can be diminished[1] or anecdotally eliminated with hypnotherapy. Research into this practice has found reductions in pain during birthing,[1][2] Hypnobirthing may also impact the duration of labour and reduces surgical interventions during delivery.

Classes – Holistic Healing

Nancy Wyatt dressed in white teaching classes

This page is to let you know that I’m available to teach one of my most popular seminars (which also can be presented as a workshop). It is a Class on Holistic Healing techniques and styles, also known as  “Complementary and Alternative Medicine.”

I conduct the presentation in person throughout the Washington, D.C. Metro Area and the Winchester to Warrenton regions of Virginia. Of course, I can travel to you also, if you want to pay for the transportation and hotel! It is a 5-hour class, so is not well-suited for online presentation. (I know you would multitask and/or leave the device on which you’re streaming the class! You can’t kid me!)

This class provides an overview of several assumptions, theories, ethics and modalities related to complementary and alternative wellness practices for the student to explore. It is for people who want to get well, stay well, and live well without the use of pharmaceutical drugs. See the topics, goals of the class, and my certifications below and/or scroll to the bottom to sign up! 😉 Continue Reading →

The Nancy Knows Us website  also relates to wellness and metaphysics. However, its primary purpose is to better enable people to book me for Transpersonal Hypnotherapy, Life Coaching, or spiritual counseling sessions. There will be a new blog, as well. Continue Reading →

What is the Difference Between Transpersonal

Hypnotherapy and HypnoMeditations?

Transpersonal Hypnotherapy

Transpersonal Hypnotherapy is a counseling or coaching technique which focuses on the spiritual components of an emotional, mental, or physical challenge, not just on the “daily life, daily maintenance” aspects.

A session provides an opportunity for us to meet to discuss something you want to explore or change in your life. Then, we’ll experience a relaxed, focused meditation that is customized to help you overcome a problem we identified or to expand into new ways of thinking and growing. People usually choose to schedule one or more follow-up appointments to reinforce what they’ve learned or to address additional areas of interest. The sessions might include age or “past life” regressions. Click Here for more details about how a session would proceed.

HypnoMeditation

A HypnoMeditation is a customized is a meditation video or PowerPoint download, using Transpersonal Hypnotherapy techniques for self-hypnosis and habit change. You can enhance the effectiveness by listening daily or right before sleeping for several days. They may be short or long, but they often run about twenty (20) minutes.

What Are The Benefits of Transpersonal Hypnotherapy?

Transpersonal Hypnotherapy and my HypnoMeditations are useful for people who actively want to overcome things, like:

  • Low self-esteem
  • Limiting beliefs
  • Fears and phobias (including PTSD)
  • Release of weight (or gaining weight)
  • Smoking or other addictive habits.
