I can’t be hypnotised, she couldn’t be ‘woken-up’.

Photo by M'reen

I can’t be hypnotised, she couldn’t be ‘woken-up’.

Both these statements are false, but, as they say there is no smoke without fire
so let’s look into this a little closer.

Taking, “he couldn’t be woken-up- the hypnotherapist tried everything” first.

When I was training we were told that in such a situation to say that
we charged double for people who didn’t open their eyes when requested.
People might not open their eyes when requested for a number of reasons.
But the most amusing was a guy who decided that he would not open his eyes
and so prove that he was not hypnotised.
I found it perplexing as his eyes were doing the most amazing things as he tried to keep them closed!
Another lady found the trance state to be so relaxing and far removed from the problems
that she had and anticipated facing that she ‘was hanging onto the radiator’ 
in order not to return to the waking state.
If a person is really tired then the subconscious mind says, ‘stuff this hypnosis lark for a game
of soldiers, I’m going to sleep’. Such a person will wake up with the therapist’s reminders
as the subconscious mind also knows that they are not supposed to be sleeping at this time of day
and in this situation. It just might take quite some minutes for this to happen
and the hypnotherapist gets on with the normal daily sounds.
This happened to me when working with a group of blind people, the general noise and movement filtered through to the ‘sleeping’ person but I wondered what the other people might think.
I imagine that they were OK with the situation as during the trance work someone’s guide dog 
reacted to a sound and they all became more alert until the dog relaxed.
A family visited, the father was really very tired and was asleep in no time, the daughter entered 
the trance state, the mother sat on the edge of her chair watching her daughter like a tigress –
the mother stopped smoking and had no desire for cigarettes even though she daily visited a friend
who smoked like a factory chimney.
As an aside, people often snore as their muscles and tissues are so relaxed that snoring
is a natural response. One man had worked with someone else and had experienced temporary results; I found that he couldn’t work with my ‘normal’ style of working so I told him rambling stories
and he snored through four sessions. He told me that they were expensive stories but 
that they worked. His wife rang up six months later to tell me how well he was doing
and that he’s also lost two stones in weight!

I can’t be ‘put under’.

Everyone can enter the state of relaxed conscious awareness given the right situation.
I read a book that said that only one animal and one bird could not be hypnotised.
I’m not sure how they were using the term hypnotised as it sounded more like pure fear to me.
Apparently if you dig a V in the ground and lay a rabbit on its back it will be here when you return from your trip. That if you lay a hen or bird on its side and draw a line with your finger from its beak out then it will lie there until you move it.
See you learn all sorts of interesting things reading my blogs.
Sometimes, if someone had experienced a traumatic event, even one that has been buried so deeply that the person is not consciously aware of the event; that person ‘cannot’ enter the trance state.
This is because the subconscious mind says, ‘been there, done that, and I ain’t doing it again’.
During one period, I was using progressive relaxation to enable people to enter the trance state
and this is to start at someone’s toes and work up the body or start at the head and work down.
Things were working fine until I got to someone’s tummy when she opened her eyes;
we discussed this and we agreed that we would try again and that her tummy could stay alert.
This alertness was repeated during the progressive relaxation and the rest of her body and mind
went into trance beautifully; her tummy probably relaxed with this confidence.
So if the hypnotherapist says that your shoulders relax and you know that at least one is still feeling tense you concentrate and worry about that shoulder and while you are doing that
the rest of your body is relaxing beautifully and eventually so does your shoulder.
I give all my clients a pre session relaxation exercise that some people use for years and others never try once. One guy had impressive results but when he came for his first session he relaxed 
so far into the trance state and then jolted straight out. He wasn’t prepared to find out why 
and at that time I didn’t have any alternative skills. However, even in the security and comfort of his own home he could not walk in his house in the dark and he equated trance as being in the black
while the relaxation exercise lying on his carpet was simply relaxing.
One lady had an understandable vested interest in not being ‘cured’ and she would open her eyes with a wicked gleam until hypnotherapy was proved ‘not to work’.
A very famous hypnotherapist simply could not get a lady to access the trance state,
the lady in question wanted to experience trance. Finally, in extreme frustration he swore at her
and she immediately entered the trance state.
Finally people with far too much will power to be ‘put under’.
People with far too much will power are generally so energetically exhausted and so fearful
of someone else having ‘control’ that they wouldn’t see a hypnotherapist anyway.
Should they do so then their body and mind is so glad to have a rest that they very easily enter
the trance state which is nothing more than an agreement that you will close your eyes and go along with whatever is good for you right now. Just think the simple act of closing your eyes signals to your body that you are going to sleep. In fact, if you close your eyes while thinking or enjoying
an experience your brain starts producing more of the relaxing alpha waves that are the waves 
of trance work.

10 Ways to Feel Lighter by the End of the Day

M'reen's photo.

I’d like to offer my two-pence worth to the following advice.

10 Ways to Feel Lighter by the End of the Day

Think you have to spend weeks before you feel lighter? Think again. In the course of a single day, there are a number of things you can do to feel fitter, leaner, and lighter! 
Am I suggesting you can lose significant amounts of fat or weight in a single day? 
Not at all, but what I am suggesting is that you can do a lot to feel fitter and lighter in your daily routine. And there’s a really important reason you want to do this.
By doing these little things to feel lighter and fitter, you’ll be way more motivated to hit the gym, 
eat healthy, and see real fitness and fat loss results. 
Ready to feel lighter? Ready to maintain a healthy and fit mindset all day long? 
Give these simple tips a try... 

10 Simple Ways to Feel Fit All Day Long

1. Start Your Day with a Natural Detox
If you want to kick things off right, start your day with some hot water or tea with lemon.
The lemon is a natural detox, and it gives your metabolism a major boost.
Plus it will help prevent over-eating in the morning.
Lemon and Lime becomes alkaline in the body and your body naturally ‘wakes up’ more acid
Hence the smoker’s ‘need’ for a cigarette. Alkaline is a healthy body.

2. Take Your Time
Rushing to eat while you’re on the go is a big reason people feel unsatisfied with their health by the end of the day. So start giving yourself a little time, let your food settle, and stop stuffing your face!
I’m sure you are aware that rushing your food does not give your tummy time to register 
that it physically is replete.

3. Drop the Dairy and Wheat
There’s some controversy over these two things, but there’s no denying that both wheat and dairy are highly processed. Try going wheat and dairy free for a day, and you’ll probably find yourself feeling a whole lot lighter.
I’m on the side of controversy here, but agree that the adult body is not designed to absorb 
so much milk. However it is being proved (at long last) that butter is far better for your body 
than the chemically manufactured margarine and that we benefit from natural active yoghurt but not the sugar heavy flavoured yoghurts. Wheat has been a staple for millennia however there is modern wheat and ancient wheat and the current fad regarding gluten – try for a time and judge for yourself as your body changes constantly.

4. Go Vegan for a Day 
Want to step it up a notch? Try going meat-free for a day. It doesn’t mean you have to go all-out vegan, but even just reducing your meat intake can give your metabolism a bit of a break 
and make you feel lighter. Just make sure you replace it with natural source of protein, not carbs! 
Apparently it is healthier to balance meat and vegetable proteins also I’ve read that we eat 
far too much meat. I‘ve found to reduce it in recipes does not detract from the taste – 
just your expectations of an affluent society.

5. Eat More Fruits and Veggies 
If you don’t want to give up the meat, that’s fine. Just try to get more fruits and veggies throughout 
the day, rather than filling up on carbs. This always makes me feel a whole lot better by the end 
of the day. Many people have not eaten fruit for years as modern fruit has an alarming increase 
of sugar and are giants in relation to the fruit of decades ago.

6. Go for an Early Run 
Of all the things you can do to feel healthier and lighter, starting your day with some intense exercise is the way to do it. Hit the ground running in the morning with a jog, a bike ride, or even some jump rope. Your whole day will feel better for it. 
Intense exercise is not an option for many and I’ve read that mixing fast with slow is far more effective and walking 100 then running/jogging/speed walking 100 is quite a work out.

7. Enjoy Some Afternoon Yoga 
Yoga’s another fantastic way to feel healthier, fitter, and lighter. Try fitting in a yoga routine right 
after work. It will help you de-stress after a busy day, and that means less overeating and snacking 
at night.  I couldn’t agree more.

8. Drink More Water 
Ditch the soda and juice, and increase your daily water intake. Not only will you feel lighter, 
you’ll also boost your metabolism and burn some more calories while you’re at it – 
and without taking in the unwanted sugar and artificial sweeteners
Juiceers strip fruit and vegetables of their fibre content which is not an empty product but essential 
in the digestion of that fruit also your body is the best juicer nature has created. Have you ever seen what soda particularly coca cola can do the grease on a car engine or the build up of lime scale etc?

9. Don’t Touch the Salt Shaker 
Sodium is the number one ingredient to make you feel bloated, and a bloated stomach is not 
how you want to end your day. Keep high-sodium foods to a minimum (soy sauce is a great example), and don’t add any salt to your meals throughout the day.
Curiously, over time and without intent  I may not have salt or very little
and have been prescribed common salt tablets twice a day!

10. Sweat It Out
Whether it’s a morning run, a little yoga, or a full-blown weight-lifting routine, working up a good sweat will make you feel ten times lighter and healthier by day’s end. And you’ll have a real impact on your fat-burning efforts with this one!

Past Life Therapy and what you might experience.

 Photocopy with imprinted lives by M'reen

Past Life Therapy and what you might experience.

This can only be a brief outline of a subject that is as interesting
and as convoluted as the human race has the potential to be.
I have been careful to include as full a range of situations as is possible
and in doing so have missed the broad middle band to which most of us exclusively belong.

Past Life Therapy can be experienced from four interest points.
Firstly, just for fun or for hypno-oneography, that is to freeze-frame your past life persona
and trace round your features. Just imagine the baronial home having ‘self portraits’
of different eras climbing up the stairs; secondly, there is the therapeutic work
that can be of immense benefit and thirdly as an educational journey into the spiritual reality
and lastly to experience the ineffable feeling of Oneness.

When working with Past Life Therapy I always do the Spirit Releasing bit first. This is to get rid
of any blocks that might get in the way of successful Past Life or, if appropriate, this-life therapy.
Spirit Releasing Therapy is rather like cleaning up all the guilt trips of our life and the energy
of others that has attached itself to us then sealing ourselves with ‘Scotch Guard’
or ‘light’, however life still happens but like spilt water the bad stuff can’t stick.
The power of the mind is incredible and you get to look in a magic mirror and ‘see’ or sense an image
of yourself. This image might be simply boring, there may be nothing to see and so nothing to work on at this point in time and therefore we can go on with the past life work. Incidentally, if your mind knows that a past life is not appropriate it will not invent one, but go to a this-life situation. One person combined a past and this-life scenario in order to explain a situation that was important to her.
What might you see in the magic mirror? Well, shaded areas, moving areas, coloured areas or voids
and holes, hot or cold spots. These may be in, on, or around your translucent body shape.
Therapists from different disciplines would call these the hidden saboteurs, inner child conflicts,
ego states, the energy of others or simply your mind’s way of expressing something that you can’t easily put into words. Should you find an area, then we dialogue with that area just as if we were talking directly to yourself. I talk to the part of you that is blue and you answer as ‘blue’,
blue may even have a name such as ‘guilt’ or Mary and we simply use the name or identifier given. The therapy happens and, if appropriate, I then ask ‘blue’ if it is ready to leave having established what blue’s purpose has been in the client’s life, establishing that the client is perfectly able 
to look after that purpose him/herself. Both blue and the client agree to the new situation, 
goodbyes are expressed and blue goes on its way to complete its own cycle;
leaving the client free of that influence. … Fascinating.
A black area may have been a headache expressing an area of stress with its source
coming from a number of areas. A tablet will just deal with the physical whereas Spirit Releasing
deals holistically with the mind, body and spiritual aspects of the situation. When clients have returned to the waking state, they tend to think, ‘Wow, where did that all come from?’

So, what might all these blobs and things be?

Thought forms can be described as memories or a mind creation,
I have read that the concept of a god is a mind creation
and that there is a physical area of the brain that is dedicated to a deity.

Vows may come under the umbrella of thought forms.
Vows are issued after a traumatic or distressing event, examples are
I will never ….’, ‘I will always …..’ etc these may be the vows one might make at death
that are carried forwards into the next life. For example, a person promises to return,
but fate decrees otherwise, or a this-life dispute occurs.
The person waiting/experiencing may conclude that ‘men are unreliable’ and take
this conviction with them throughout this and subsequent lives; unfortunately
such a silent or unknown conviction can ruin the most positive relationship.

Holes and voids might be bits missing from a person; you may have had an accident
or an operation or you might have been born without a physical part of your body.
The mind, body, spirit connection knows what the blueprint for a person is supposed to be.
Apparently, people born without a limb can experience phantom limb pain.
Try putting a sticking plaster on that!
Some people can seem ‘vacant’, or ‘not all there’ possibly they may have been born
without an emotional bit or in an adult this void could be the result of a frozen
or displaced, emotion due to trauma.
When physically touched two people felt ‘empty’ to me.
The emotions tied up in these expressions/holes can be returned to the person
through Spirit Releasing Therapy, soul retrieval work or Shamanic work, etc.,
so that the person is in fact ‘whole’ so that by giving back the responsibility to its rightful owner
the hole is filled for one and the swirling area is removed for the other person.
What’s your heart doing in San Francisco? “When you left/died, part of me left/died with you”, etc.
Or maybe you gave a person a ‘piece of your mind’ and it stuck to that person. Hey, you need it back
to be whole, and that person does not want to be lumbered with a bit of your mind.
For that person, your ‘hole’ may be their swirling area.
These could be guilt trips, labels you are stuck with, the ‘shoulds’ and ‘musts’, ‘have tos’
and ‘need tos’ that CBT and REBT (Therapy) etc. deal with.

This swirling area could be described as a fragment that has attached to another person or to you.
Fragments come in all shapes and sizes and from all sorts of situations
and so each get its own category dependent upon the origin and effect.
Like a broken vase they all need putting back together, in the correct vase,
for the vase to hold water again.

Getting a bit bigger now we have sub-personalities, sub-personalities have
different names depending on the therapy being described but they are still, essentially,
bits of us that are frozen in time and attitude.
For example, if you failed to drown as a child, that ‘child’ is not going to give you a second chance
and so makes sure that you don’t go near the water. The adult might realise
that this is a bit inconvenient and even a nonsense, but your inner child isn’t open to sense.
Again these can stay with you or attach themselves to others. An over protective parent,
the expression is ‘tied to your mother’s apron strings’ could be a good example.

Going up the scale we can have attached entities, or earthbound spirits or some other descriptor
and these may be completely benign and think that they are doing you a favour. Or you may be really pleased to experience the presence of someone you loved who has died but you may need to set up
an agreement that they only call when invited or their request has been accepted.
Some are not as friendly and can lead from mild to serious obsessions and compulsions.
For the person who has experienced war and is vividly seeing faces, are these attached entities
or crystal clear frozen memories that are locked in time? What ever your view point,
these disturbing experiences need to find the peace that can be afforded with the sensitive
and respectful approach offered by an experienced therapist.

Dark energy beings. As described, this may be very negative energy which when worked with correctly can become a positive resource to the client. This negative energy may originate from
any of the above descriptions and they are treated courteously and their release is facilitated,
they may be released from the client or indeed from the client’s abuser, this being a really profound experience for the client.
I observed the therapy of a lady who had been cruelly abused and her abuser was still alive.
In an altered state of conscious awareness, she could not accept or forgive that is ‘let go’.
During her trance, when a dark entity had been promptly removed from the abuser,
the abuser profusely apologised to the client, the client immediately accepted the apology,
and forgiveness was not a question. This sixty-year-old lady was relieved of an immense
and debilitating burden.
The abuser would also have been relieved, but I am not in a position to confirm this.
In milder situations, when this happens there is an instant and noticeable change in attitude
to the person worked with and they invariably report that other person has had a personality change.
This is life enhancing when it changes an intractable relationship;
it is profound when it frees a person from the binds of abuse.
I have had two clients who have released their personal ‘devils’, that isn’t to say that these had horns, cloven hooves and a tail. This was the client’s descriptor of what they perceived.
One fifty year old man saw his body shape as being completely surrounded with black,
he said that he had been fighting this devil for fifteen years,
that it had passed from his grandfather to his father and from his father to himself at birth.
This particular devil was abuse.

Then there are the ‘devil’s spawn’, depending upon the situation these are packed off
to the light without messing around as I’m not here to counsel such negative energies.
Are Devil’s spawn really thought forms that have a little more shape and substance?

Then we have aliens, and these are becoming more recognised throughout the world.
They, purportedly, treat us as we treat other life forms and they are quite content
to go back to their mother ship. You would have thought that their communications system
would inform them that we don’t like being experimented with.
But then again, we don’t listen to our own communications, ‘I don’t like that’, ‘don’t do that’,
or the baby that spits out the medicine or food that it intuitively understands is bad for it,
no, we don’t listen either.
Alien Abduction is another form of therapy that is becoming more recognised
and there are the aliens who live amongst us to better our lives.

Sparks. These are the formative sparks from creation that have not joined their own body
and tagged onto yours either because it seemed like a good idea, they got a bit lost, or there was a prior agreement. As a child, I loved the story in Peter Pan and Wendy that described how the fairies
were formed; I suspect that he bootlegged the story. If I remember correctly, in one creation version, God sat around for so long that he got a bit bored, eventually he thought of something so funny
that he laughed so much that he broke up into little sparks and the sparks formed the spirit
within all of us. I might add that all of the devil’s spawn have a little light within them,
it’s just that they don’t know it.
When all these areas have gone to the Light, returned to their own body or been re-integrated,
then the client is asked to see a light within themselves and to let that light fill their being
and go beyond themselves to a distance of about three feet or one meter.
This heals and protects while the ongoing therapy adds to that person’s abilities.
All these effects have happened in this lifetime
and as this is the life we are leading, the one we are interacting with others, now.
I think that it is important that if the client is able to see, sense or be aware
in any way of a disturbance of their body shape then that it should be worked with
before any past life work is started.
After one confusing session that worked out logically in the end,
I told the client that it was rather like having a jigsaw without the picture on the box to guide us.
She asked if what she saw was real. I am a therapist; the proof of the pudding is there,
whatever it is that is real, it is real for her and very effective therapy.

This introduction should have you filling the google search boxes or Wickapedia
to find the extending or contradictory experience of others. Happy searching.
