Nancy Knows Us

Greetings, People! This is just a short blog to let you know I soon will have a new website up and running. It is called “NancyKnows.us.”

The “My Get Well Guru” blog (where you are now) still will be the place to get in-depth blogs or information about various holistic healing and metaphysics topics.

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 →

HypnoBirthing Classes

What is HypnoBirthing and Where Can You Take HypnoBirthing Classes for Yourself or to Become Certified?

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.[3]

It happens that one of the best (world-renown) teachers of this form of natural birthing is my Master Transpersonal Hypnotherapy teacher, Sarojini (Sara) Alva, who lives in Northern Virginia, and she is offering some new classes for certification. See her message below. When I was her student, I found her loving nature and thorough knowledge, combined with her vast experience, to be wonderful for learning well in a very warm, relaxed environment. I hope you will talk with her about these and others of her classes! Continue Reading →

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

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.

Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP)

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP)

Dandelion seeds blowing in wind into blue sky and sun raysGuess what I just learned!    NLP!

As usual, I am scattering my seeds in many directions (like a good dandelion).  I just got my certificate of completion, from Dr. Yvonne (Oswald)  in a class on Neuro-Linguistic Programming, better known as NLP. This is an amazing technique which helps people overcome “stuck” issues (like emotional or psychological issues, fears and limiting beliefs) in a fraction of the time it would take using other techniques and without having to relive every single, tortuous moment of what caused the reaction to the causal event.

You can go to a psychiatrist for twenty years, or you can take an NLP “break-through” session for 5 hours, and I’d bet you a double fudge chocolate ice cream cone that the NLP will work far better and much faster!

In order to get my certification as an NLP professional, I have to complete 30 hours of NLP practice and pass an exam. If you live near me, I’d love for you to help me by scheduling a practice session with me. My (beautiful, British, now Canadian, world-renowned) instructor assured us that people will benefit greatly, even though students are not yet fully comfortable in conducting the sessions.  (In the future, I’ll be able to do it by Skype or other media, but I prefer practicing in person.) I advise you to take advantage of this opportunity; because the actual sessions are priced at $150/hour or $500 for a break-through session. For the first volunteers, I’ll give 5 hours free (the $500 value), after which I’ll charge the normal hourly rate. So, ACT NOW, as they say!

John Grinder (linguistics) and Richard Bandler (mathematics and gestalt therapy) created NLP  to generate models of excellence; however, these techniques are applicable to every area of life, including, but not limited to business. Lots of information is available on the NLP founders’ website.  In brief, they say that

NLP is founded on two fundamental presuppositions:1. The Map is Not the Territory…we can never know reality. We can only know our perceptions of reality….It is generally not reality that limits us or empowers us, but rather our map of reality. 2. Life and ‘Mind’ are Systemic Processes. It is not possible to completely isolate any part of the system from the rest of the system.”

You can get much more detail on their website.

My Next Disappearing Act

Eyes gazing at crystal ballYes, I’m about to do it again, which means that my posts will continue to be “irregular,” to put it politely.  Soon, I’ll be attending a certification class, so I can provide hypnosis techniques, along with the NLP, to help people overcome traumas and dramas in their lives or simply to become more successful.

Blue Water drop and ripplesIf you think you’ve never meditated or been capable of being hypnotized, just think back to a time when you stared at a sunset/sunrise, or at a flickering candle flame, or at a fireplace. You were there, Baby Cakes! You were there in your Alpha brain wave state or deeper. It is so relaxing and rejuvenating! I already know how to do this, but I want to get the certification to prove it. I’ll have to pass an exam and hold practice sessions for that, too; so, stay tuned!

Why Would I Do These Things?

These are just more tools in my toolbox for being able to help people meet their own needs. Let’s explore together. Contact me with questions, or to schedule a session (still free during the practice sessions; but definitely not thereafter!)
