Acceptance is one of the hardest lessons a soul comes to learn in any given lifetime. It is a great challenge to let go of the need to control and create an outcome that is favorable. By controlling events and situations we feel a sense of safety and security and create a false belief system. The truth of the matter is that human beings don’t possess all the facts and details, and have a limited vision of the larger picture, therefor control is not helpful. We must let go of control and invite trust into the picture. We need to trust in universal wisdom and in a higher power because of our human limitations. This wisdom proves to us time and time again that there is no need to control, yet there is a great need to accept what is. Things will unfold the way they need to unfold and always in our favor. The understanding of events and their outcome becomes clear and evident later in life as we look back in time. These are spiritual lessons in the development and growth of the soul.
Acceptance leads us on the path to Inner peace and tranquility. Inner peace opens the door to Freedom. Freedom is every human being’s wish and desire. It allows us to accept and forgive ourselves and others for being human and making mistakes.
We have the freedom to choose and the wisdom to enhance our lives by accepting what is and changing what can be changed.
What do I choose to accept today?

I accept life as a pathway to growth and all people as the lights along the path.
I Accept mistakes as part of the human experience.
I accept vulnerability as part of life and recognize it as strength rather than weakness.
I accept the fact the life is a mystery filled with surprises.
I accept only positive thoughts to reside within my mind and release the others.

I accept that a higher intelligence is working for me and with me at any given moment, whether I am aware of it or not.
I accept life as the toughest yet best school and the lessons as universal gifts.
I accept the gift of life as a precious experience.
I am grateful for all that I am, you are, and all there is right here right now.
I pray that my light shines brighter and lights up your dark corners of the soul and mine.
May you accept your life in totality and bless it for what it is and for who you are.
And so it is.
What is hypnosis?
Hypnosis is a safe and natural state of heightened awareness, focused concentration, total relaxation and accelerated learning. It is often considered as an altered state of consciousness featuring “selective perception”. It is a process in which the client – subject (who is in control) chooses to see only what is relevant to his task, blocking out everything else.
Hypnosis involves guided concentration. It may be provided by a qualified hypnotherapist, or in the case of self-hypnosis, by the individual subject. Since every form of hypnosis is self-hypnosis, a certified practitioner can provide the recipient with a lifetime of benefits by teaching them how to use this state of mind to heal, change and transform. In fact, every person spends at least 4 or more hours of their waking day in a state of hypnosis; typically while reading, watching TV, speaking on the phone, driving, or daydreaming.
Hypnosis is not:
-A sleep state
-A state of unconsciousness
-A surrender of mental powers and control
-An act of magic or voodoo
-A new age theory or gimmick
All of the above are false beliefs stemming from ignorance and lack of knowledge.
The History of Hypnosis
The practice of hypnosis dates back to ancient times. It is as old as mankind. It used to be considered a sacred procedure in tribes used by “Mogurs” and “Medicine Women” of prehistoric clans.
In early centuries of our land, the medicine men of Indian Tribes performed seeming miracles. The usage of hypnosis also occurred in the 1700’s, under different names.
There were periods of progress and periods of stagnation in the development of modern hypnosis. Medical interest and acceptance expanded following World War II when the use of hypnotherapy proved especially helpful to surviving battlefield casualties suffering from shock, injury, battle fatigue, and various psychological disorders. As understanding increased, hypnosis began to be recognized as an important adjunct to counseling psychology, psychotherapy, psychiatry, and also medical fields including: neurology, oncology, obstetrics, emergency medicine, burn therapy, pain management and others. It is now finding increased usage in dentistry and other areas where pain control is important.
All humans (and possibly several animals) have two distinct minds: the conscious mind and the unconscious mind. The unconscious mind is vastly larger and more powerful than the conscious mind. Yet it is the least understood by mankind. The unconscious mind has two functional elements: the subconscious and the super conscious. The former acts as the storehouse of memory, while the latter deals with the spiritual realm.
How does it work?
The subconscious mind receives and retains, neither accepting nor rejecting, all the messages we receive from our backgrounds; whether genetic, social, religious, or experiential. It also internalizes all of the daily conflicts that permeate our lives.
When the conscious mind becomes overwhelmed, the subconscious mind prepares us for what is considered appropriate action to deal with stress (usually a fight, flight or freeze response). However the subconscious mind does not analyze or rationalize actions as does the conscious mind, but rather accepts reality as-is.
Essentially, hypnosis provides a forum of communication between the conscious mind and the subconscious mind.
Many human problems, habits, stresses, anxieties, attitudes, fears, phobias, or apparent deficiencies can be traced to erroneous interpretations made by the subconscious mind. These internalizations then lead to problems encountered in daily life, once they become enacted by the conscious mind.
The subconscious mind is also the seat of all memory. Traumatic events can be buried or suppressed in the subconscious mind. A major benefit of hypnotherapy is its ability to uncover and understand the repressed experience at the root of what might then become a troublesome disorder.
What is Hypnotherapy?
Hypnotherapy is a form of psychotherapy using hypnosis. It helps the client create subconscious changes in the form of new responses, thoughts, feelings, attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. It is a highly effective science in solving problems. It can be very beneficial as a mode of therapy in and of itself. It is also a valuable adjunct in psychotherapy and psychiatry. Hypnosis likely offers the lowest risk of treatment contraindications on many levels.
In sum, we can say that hypnotherapy is a natural, safe, effective and efficient modality of therapy. While the clients are in hypnosis, they can access their subconscious mind, get to the root cause of their problem, recall the troublesome event in question, and release the feelings associated with it in order to change their perception of it. Altering their perception allows them to heal the past so they can initiate change. The most important benefit involved in using hypnotherapy is that the newfound awareness can serve to create positive and lasting changes. Once a client understands and accepts the root cause of their challenges, they are then able to acquire the tools necessary to initiate a sense of relief that comes with long-lasting change.
Hypnotherapy is very effective in dealing with the
Addictions – (food, alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, shopping, gambling) and more.
Weight loss and eating disorders
Stress, Anxiety & depression
Fears & Phobias
Preparation for surgery
Lack of confidence
Low self esteem
Past life memories
What is regression therapy?
Regression therapy or “time travel” is another very effective way to use hypnosis. Not surprisingly, most painful events and unprocessed traumas that occurred in the past often continue to plague our lives as if they happened in the present moment. Going back in time through hypnosis permits the client to access a previously experienced painful stage in their life that is directly related to problems encountered in the here-and-now. The subconscious mind will reveal an experience that needs healing. The therapist will guide the client to safely re-experience the event as though it is happening on a screen projected in front of them. Through this process, the client can safely process the past trauma knowing that he/she is guided and supported by the therapist.
In regression therapy as in all hypnotherapy sessions, psychological tools are used in order to incite changes and healing. Understanding and processing the memory of what was allows the client to move on in creating a new reality.
What is Past-Life Regression Therapy?
Past-Life Regression Therapy is another clinical application method of using hypnosis. It enables the client to uncover deeply rooted patterns, beliefs and attitudes that continue to negatively affect his/her life at the present time.
In a state of hypnosis, the client remembers a lifetime that houses a story needing understanding in order to promote change and growth. Ultimately, what we cannot understand cannot be changed.
This form of therapy has nothing to do with the client’s belief or lack thereof in reincarnation, religion, or spirituality. All that matters is that healing takes place and change occurs quite rapidly. Every session uncovers an opportunity to experience an amazing sense of relief, understanding, knowledge and wisdom that is buried deep within the subconscious mind.
Many doctors and psychologists are using this form of therapy to bring about more effective ways to help their clients heal.
Using past-life regression therapy has proven to be one of the most exciting ways to work with clients around the journey of their soul. It is a true privilege for me.
Through this process, clients can receive a wealth of gifts and wisdom from their subconscious mind which are beyond the conscious level of comprehension.
I honor each and every person and session, and feel deeply blessed to share their journey with them!
