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.

DRUM ROLL PLEASE ~ INTRODUCING DR. YVONNE OSWALD’S MIND MAGIC!

Your Fingernails Tell Health Stories!

See What Your Manicurist Sees When Looking at Your Fingernails!

The manicurist might not recognize the symptoms your fingernails portray. However, some practitioners of Eastern and Western Medicine or of Holistic Healing Modalities can identify health problems by looking at your fingernails before you cover them up with nail polish. Human fingernail types Vector illustration

Here are some resources before we continue. They help define our terms of Eastern, Western, and Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM / holistic healing). They also provide more pictures and links than I can include in this blog.

The National  Institute of Health (NIH) compares Eastern and Western approaches to medicine and health.

An easier way to understand it may be found in the blog of a person who has practiced “all of the above.” Dr. Emili Kim describes his findings.

Emotional Freedom Technique – Tapping

Tapping (EFT) Coming Soon!

Eft_punkte

Tapping  = The  Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT)

Hello, People!

Are you familiar with the “Tapping” (Emotional Freedom Technique –  EFT)  phenomenon?  This is a semi-miraculous, ritualized, way of “tapping” with your fingers on acupressure points on your body, while speaking about topics that have caused issues for you in areas such as health, financial circumstances, emotional pain, or some other theme.

For a more formal definition, here’s one from the ever-present Wikipedia:  “Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT) is a form of counseling intervention that draws on various theories of alternative medicine including acupuncture, neuro-linguistic programming, energy medicine, and Thought Field Therapy.  During an EFT session, the client will focus on a specific issue while tapping on “end points of the body’s energy meridians.”  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tapping.

The EFT Tapping Process   For those of you who are unfamiliar, here are the steps.  First, you identify the concern and pay concentrated attention to the sensations that arise, as your mind thinks about the issue and the emotions begin to be expressed in the body.  You might feel tightness, fear, pain, or any number of things.  As you experience whatever the body is communicating to you, you acknowledge it and assign it a number – between 1 and 10 – to describe the intensity of those feelings as you think about the problem.

You then state (usually aloud) that – in spite of this difficulty – you love and approve of yourself.  You do this three times, while tapping on the appropriate acupressure point.  (In this case, it is called the karate chop point.)  After that portion of the technique Is done, you go through a series of tapping points, using different words to overcome the feelings associated with that issue.  During the process, you stop periodically, to “check in” with your body and see if the sensations have changed.  You then re-assign a number between 1 and 10, if the intensity has transformed.  Often the number has gone from 10 to a very low number or to 0 after just a few minutes of this exercise; and the issue becomes resolved.

SOUNDS CUCKOO, DOESN’T IT?!!  But, guess what!  IT WORKS

Here is a link where you can learn much more and get testimonials about how great it is: http://www.thetappingsolution.com/.

So, why am I blogging about Tapping / EFT?  The answer is……..drum roll, please……..because I often do not like the words I hear being used to resolve the issues.  I think  the words – which are creating a new reality for you – need to be carefully chosen, so as to create the most healthful outcomes: mental, physical, and spiritual.

Consequently, I have decided to create some” tapping scripts on a wide variety of subjects.”  I’ll give a good sample on the website for free; and, if you like the sample, you can get more on my upcoming 8 For 8 program.  (Under many of my posts, I’ll be offering 8 something or others for $8…. In this case, 8 carefully crafted and tested scripts for $8.  Another example would be 8 short speeches (like wedding or retirement toasts) for $8).  So, stay tuned.  Tapping Scripts will soon be available and will focus on abundance, health resolutions, overcoming broken hearts or loss of loved ones, and more!    If you are interested, be sure to send me your name and email address; or, sign up when that opt in segment is added to my new website
