There’re so many different ways to label negative feelings. Each has a different definition and evokes a unique way of experiencing it in the mind and body. Every emotion has a corresponding physical expression that includes, but is not limited to, elevated blood pressure, stomach pain, neck or back pain or even headaches. Because of the mind/body connection, the physical stress on the body caused by negative feelings can have long range and lasting health consequences. You don’t have to be a victim of your own feelings.

There is an article posted on the NPR website that says that scientists are finding a connection between irritability,anger and depression. They have made the connection that opens the possibility of another way to use medication for people who didn’t realize their anger and irritability could be depression.

I have successfully worked with many clients who have unresolved anger from childhood experiences. That anger affects every aspect of their lives. They definitely feel depressed as a result of holding on to those negative feelings for so long. Angry people often lash out at those around them making them clearly appear to be irritated. I am not a mental health doctor but I’m not seeing the ‘new’ connection between these negative emotions. Hypnosis, meridian tapping and Neuro Linguistic Programming are all tools that I use to alleviate negative feelings of all kinds. Although medication can benefit people who suffer from a variety emotional health issues, there are also several alternatives that can be used effectively to get the desired results without committing to a medical remedy. The side effects of medication can sometimes be very severe. Why not be open to see if other modalities can help as medication remains an option if other, more holisticavenues fail?

There is extensive research documenting positive results supporting hypnosis and meridian tapping for learning to cope with and resolve deep emotional negative feelings.

I have professional relationships with many medical doctors who refer their patients to me as a first choice to deal with unresolved emotions. Hypnosis is widely used and respected in the medical community but there are still so many who are uninformed about options for alternative help and therefore suffer needlessly. 

Hypnosis can empower you to understand the root cause of unwanted negative feelings and teach you to reframe your thoughts to neutralize those negative feelings.

I recently worked with someone who has a very stressful job and felt anxious every day at work. The feelings were related to their past childhood experiences but were exacerbated by her boss. We were able to resolve those issues from the past, which neutralized the effect her job on her life. It didn’t change the situation but it changed the way it affected her. Her stress was reduced to a very manageable level and she was able to function well at work comfortably.

Negative feelings are normal but they don’t have to define your life or your relationships. Take control of your thoughts that create those feelings that dictate your behaviors. You can take back control of your life! All the resources you need to feel better are already inside of you!

We all know people who are trim and we think they just have a better metabolism or it’s just the luck of having good genes. Well, that’s only partly true. Our genetic makeup definitely influences our body type in many ways. It determines our height, bone structure, and can even be the cause of a predisposition towards a chunkier body. However, that doesn’t mean we don’t have any choice aboutwhat to do about those factors. All the people I know who are trim are very mindful of what they eat. They remain trim by being careful about their choices and work to maintain their weight. It’s definitely easier to stay trim than to get trim, but it’s a lifestyle commitment that gets easier as it becomes your new habit.

There are many factors that contribute to our body type but even with those factors we still have the ability to create a trimmer body. We often see families that seem to have similar weight issues. Sometimes it’s the genetic factors but it’s also the cultural habits that are learned in a family. My weight loss clients often talk about the way they were raised and the way they ate as kids. I remind them that as adults they can make different choices and learn new eating habits. Regardless of body type or size excess fat comes from eating things that the body doesn’t need, doesn’t use and get stored as fat. Sometimes it’s the quantity and sometimes it’s the quality of food.

The emotional relationship with food is often a big factor. Food is often used as a drug for a quick fix to get pleasure or relieve stress in the moment, but it is short lived and the regret, guilt and disappointment quickly sets in. 

If you’re serious about wanting to lose weight do what trim people do: eat to live, don’t live to eat, only eat until you’re satisfied and not until you’re full, only eat for nourishment which means be aware of the difference between food and edible substances, andlimit junk to two bites; the first bite and the last bite. Junk food only makes fat but two bites will satisfy the desire for the flavor without interfering with your goal. Only eat to satisfy your actual hunger, eat until you’re satisfied and not full and find other ways to cope with stress. 

Trim people are good examples of the long term effects of being mindful of what you choose to eat. 

If you feel uncomfortable in your body because you’re carrying extra weight, change your relationship with your body and with food. You always have a choice. The long term results of healthy changes are worth the effort.

If you need help making those changes, Hypnosis is a very effective way to change habits

If you are feeling unhappy, out of control or just plain miserable there may be some specific reasons you are avoiding asking for help.

Some of the reasons people avoid getting the help they need are that they think they can handle it themselves, or that it will pass. I would ask those people, "How long have you been waiting for that to happen?" Another reason people avoid seeking help is because they don't know where to go or what kind of help is right or most effective. Often people seek help from their doctor who prescribes medication to try to relieve the discomfort of their suffering but they don't want to take medication. The truth, that is difficult sometimes to grasp, is that we all have all the power we need to help ourselves. Regardless of what kind of help one seeks, empowering you to find your own strength and potential to heal is the ultimate goal.

Some believe that no one will understand or that nothing will change. Others fear appearing weak or afraid to admit they feel out of control. When the situation seems unmanageable or hopeless, the belief is often that suffering is the only option.  Because they can't imagine a solution or envision the process of healing, they stay stuck and paralyzed by the fear of the unknown. 

Clients have often told me that they felt desperate and out of control, and that I was their last hope. Many people don't realize that although they cannot control the people around them, or control what situations occur, they have complete control over the way they allow things to affect them, and how they respond. The process of empowering can make the difference between being a victim and being in control of one's own life.

I always make it clear to my clients that I cannot change their lives or their situation but I can help them to change the way they feel about it or the way they perceive it. Because all hypnosis is self-hypnosis, once you learn to control and change negative thoughts, you can begin to change your feelings.

I have seen clients who wanted to let go of bad relationships or heal from a break up, as well as those who just work in a toxic environment and feel powerless on their job. The range of powerlessness I have encountered with my clients is vast but the approach is always based on helping to neutralize negative feelings such as anger, fear and sadness to allow for moving forward to a happier life. Hypnosis is not magic and often several sessions are required for the best results.  So although hypnosis is a very effective and powerful tool that anyone can benefit from, it is still often viewed as a last resort. 

So your choice is simple: continue to experience negative feelings or take control of your situation and confront your issues for a, happier, less stressful life.

As a former health educator, very little surprises me when it comes to teenagers.   However, that has all changed with the news I’m getting about e-cigarettes or jewels or pods or whatever they are called.  I have treated several teens in the past few months to help them ‘kick the habit’ and hypnosis has been a very effective and successful solution.  The reports, however from these students indicate that it is very widespread and is done in school without detection because the smell and vapor from the devices are virtuallyundetectable. Those who I have treated reported to me that they did it all day. They felt very addicted and that feelingscared them. It is being done as young as middle school andis completely out of control in high school.  It has become the rage and is seen as being much less objectionable than cigarettes.  

The scare tactics being used by the schools to dissuade kids from starting are having the unintended consequence ofconvincing many teens that this activity is so addictive that they cannot stop their use of these products once they start.  The ‘pods’ they purchase come in many different flavors and the marketing is directed at kids. I was told by one parent that one of the flavors available is called ‘unicorn milk’. How can anything associated with unicorns be bad? I cannot even imagine how the FDA permitted these devices to be allowed on the market since they are clearly a different delivery system for putting things into the body that aren’t food or nutrients, just chemicals. How harmful they are is yet to be determined because the current generation of users are the guinea pigs! 

I guess the question is: What can be done to help or dissuade kids from using these? The law clearly states that one must be 18 to purchase them but the enforcement of those laws is unfeasible since they can be purchased online.  These devices are far from harmless although they are promoted to help people stop smoking cigarettes. In the endthis is really simply replacing one vice with another. Hypnosis can stop the smoking habit in the most effective painless way but doctors that recommend it are still in the minority. I get many doctor referrals but I hear most commonly that doctors offer Chantix or nicotine patches and gum first. When those don’t work, people resort to hypnosis. It’s hard to imagine that hypnosis wouldn’t be the first choice. I often wonder if doctors get paid for prescribing these awful chemical tobacco substitutes. It’shard to find any other reason for those decisions.

Parents and adults who are concerned about teens, and even preteens, need to be aware of what they are doing.  The teens I helped told me they ‘did it all day.’ They had physical feelings from it that some found frightening, especially when they tried to stop.  Fortunately for those who chose it, hypnosis is very effective in stopping the cravings and dependence on these devices, but the person has to want to quit.  Please pay attention to what your kids are into and communicate with other parents to find support to help these kids make healthier choices.

This is a question I get very often; what is the earliest age that a child can be to benefit from hypnosis? The answer is simple. If a child can follow directions they can be hypnotized. Children are excellent subjects because they don’t have the trust issues and skepticism that adults often have. They have wonderful imaginations and that is an essential part of being a good subject.

I have worked with children on many issues and the most important part is that children often have issues for many years before anyone notices or takes them seriously. Most often children’s issues are just written off to growing pains or just part of growing up. Imagine how great it would have been if your parents helped you resolve your issues before they got out of hand? Children suffer from anxiety and nervousness and often manifest those behaviors by wetting the bed or being violent or shying away from new situations. The two major causes of anxiety that I have seen are witnessing mom and dad fighting, even loud arguing, and the first time the child was left at nursery school or daycare. The interesting part of this is that they don’t realize they are anxious from those things until they are adolescents or adults. The anxiety manifests itself in a variety of ways but when someone is tired of feeling anxious and out of control they seek help. Often anxious children have learned the anxious behaviors from their parents. Parents who are over protective or big worriers inadvertently teach those habits to children who then worry about everything! Children would be better served, in my opinion by learning coping skills in the event that something unpleasant happens so that they don’t need to worry because they have the confidence they can handle whatever situation they are faced with. It’s better than just dreading the possibility that something might happen, because it usually doesn’t.

The sooner children are relieved of their anxieties and fears, the sooner they can enjoy being a child! So many children are bullied because schools really do not have the ability or resources to address the issues in a serious enough way to discourage it. With all the policies and procedures, children are still being bullied and now its even worse with social media making it easier to bully outside of school. Hypnosis can help a child build self- esteem and learn coping skills to empower them to begin to handle the struggles of growing up.

Not all issues can be resolved quickly but children can benefit from early intervention if they are having behavioral problems or anxiety that is affecting their everyday life.

Adolescents have so much pressure on them that it is easier to handle if they resolved their childhood issues before they are adolescents!

There are many different kinds of pain. Pain is felt physically, emotionally and psychologically and most often cannot be separated. There is a very strong mind body connection and that is why it’s easier than you would imagine to reduce pain using nothing more than the power of your mind.

There is still so much not known about the science of the mind, but what is known is powerful enough to help you use it to make major changes in the quality of your life.  Although my perspective as a hypnotist may differ from other health professionals, all the techniques I use with my clients successfully improve the quality of their life. These techniques can be used by anyone who chooses to take back control over the way they feel.  I recently heard a quote that really stuck with me; “You can’t change the cards you are dealt, but you can control the way you play them!” I cannot change your life but I can help you change the way you feel about it. I can help you change the way you allow things to affect you and I can teach you how to reduce the pain or discomfort that you suffer with.

The science of pain is related to the sensory neurons in your body and the messages they send to your brain.  Then, there is the way your brain responds to the messages. Often your brain plays tricks on you. You may not have heard of ‘phantom pain’ but it occurs in people who have lost a limb but still feel the pain as though the limb is still there. That may seem strange to you but it should help you to understand that pain is not only about the injury or pain source but about the way your mind responds to it or perceives it. 

I had a client who was 3 months past a surgery on her hand but she could still not use her fingers the way she should have been able to. A quick technique I used on her immediately brought all the function back to her fingers. She thought it was a miracle! She gave me credit for fixing her fingers but the surgery fixed the fingers. Her brain just didn’t know it! I was able to help her brain remember the way her fingers worked before the injury. Cells have memory and that memory often remains after surgery should have made changes. 

I have written often about Meridian Tapping and my favorite thing about it is that it works 100% of the time and it works immediately. Meridian Tapping is a very effective way to reduce or eliminate discomfort.  Because much of our physical discomfort has emotional or psychological causes, focusing on the emotion associated with the discomfort and addressing that can eliminate the need for the pain. Remember, pain is your mind and body’s way to signal you that there is a problem. Sometimes the problem is completely unrelated to the way it is manifested in the body. Much digestive discomfort, muscle or nerve pain is related to holding on to old negative feelings.  There is often nothing physically wrong with the body but the pain is severe. Emotional pain can create physical problems in the body. Fibromyalgiais a good example of this. All stress related problems can manifest themselves physically in the body and be felt as physical pain. People get angry when their medical doctor cannot find anything wrong but in my world it is very common.

There are many hypnosis and mindfulness techniques that can help you manage physical and emotional pain if you are willing to take the necessary steps to face those issues you have been ignoring or thought you already coped with

As I watch a TV show that portrays a woman giving birth as a screaming woman in labor, I feel compelled to share my latest passion in the world of hypnosis. I’m excited to share with you the idea and process of childbirth with hypnosis. Without becoming too technical, I will share with you the idea behind using hypnosis for preparing for childbirth.

Giving birth is a natural process that all the creatures on earth have in common. If you have ever witnessed your pet give birth, you may recall the complete absence of indications that it is a torturous experience.  Animals just prepare by creating a comfortable place to give birth, get into a comfortable position and wait for their body to do the rest. Although you may have heard an animal in pain make painful sounds, you never hear it during the birth process.  Humans are the only animals that get into a really uncomfortable position if the doctor or hospital is in charge. They enter the process with a fear that has been programmed into their mind with every Hollywood movie birth they have ever seen. Fear is the cause of most of the pain of child birth. Although giving birth can be uncomfortable, the more fear a woman has the more pain she feels. That’s how hypnosis makes a big difference

I will describe a few of the many reasons to use hypnosis for birth. First I should mention there have been many books written and classes taught on the subject. There are even free classes available on Youtube. Although the specifics may vary, the principles are the same. Planning to use hypnosis to give birth begins months before the birth and should include both partners involved with the birth.  Because the uterus is made up of a series of muscle fibers that automatically contract to expel the baby from the body, if a woman feels fear she will tighten those muscles, restricting blood flow and causing pain.  If the mother learns and practices relaxation and self hypnosis techniques, as well as learning about the process of birth as a natural process, the fear is removed and the body can do what it was designed to do. 

According to the Mongan method of hypnobirthing the six main components are: Education, Relaxation, Deepening, Visualizations, Breathing and Affirmations.

These components are taught many weeks before the birth for the Mom to learn how to breathe during different aspects of the process of labor and delivery. The Mom, with the support of her partner also practices relaxation and positive affirmations about the birth process. As the mom practices self hypnosis, the partner learns how to coach her to relax using gentle massage techniques and signals for relaxation.

It is truly a joint effort that puts the power of choice with the parents often requiring minimal intervention from the medical community. The process of learning hypnosis during the last trimester enhances the bond between the parents and the unborn baby. When the mom is calm the baby is calm. When the mom is confident and prepared with relaxation skills, she often experiences a shorter labor and more comfortable birth process. I am currently coaching my first Mom in hypnosis to help make her first birth a wonderful experience.

I have written about anger before but this is a question that still remains unclear.
Why are some people just angry by nature? Does being angry give a person the right to burst out into a mean, out of control rant?
We often tiptoe around angry people so we don’t ‘set them off . People often get used to angry rants and are afraid or just don’t want to address their angry behavior.
Here are some tips: if you are the angry one, begin to become aware of where you learned your angry style. Which of your parents did you learn from? How did you feel when the rant was directed toward you? Identify the feelings that you are having that may feel like anger, but are not. The anger is just a habit, or a convenient expression of much deeper, uncomfortable feelings. Here are some possible emotions you are avoiding: feeling disrespected, sadness, inadequacy, fear of being out of contro, or resentment toward the one whose anger you were the victim of. The thing that set you off was just a trigger and has very little to do with the person you’re currently ranting at. Being aware of what you are really feeling is the beginning of controlling those angry rants. The feeling always begins with an increased heart rate or knot in the stomach. The time to take control is at the first sign of anger building. Choose to take 3 deep breaths slowly in and out. As you breathe in think ‘calm’ and as you breathe out release stress. Decide to remove yourself from the situation for a few minutes so you can plan your words to respond instead of reacting to the situation. The best way to express your anger is to use the words, “ I’m really angry because.....” Anger isn’t bad, it’s a very normal feeling. It’s only bad if you hold on to it and let it grow. When that happens it builds until it feels out of control. You are never out of control but sometimes you neglect to use your control. It becomes a habit and is rather unfair to those you impose it upon. Punching a pillow or a punching bag can be helpful to release the adrenaline you have built up. Other forms of exercise will also work to use up that adrenaline.

If you are the victim of the anger: remain calm and let the person know that their behavior is unacceptable and you will be happy to discuss and issue when they are ready and feel better. When possible, ignore the words and focus on the feelings. For example ; “ I see you’re really upset and angry. What’s going on?” Remind them that you know they’re feeling terrible but you don’t like being screamed at.
People who lash out in anger don’t see them as being abusive but the victim of their rant often feels abused. Those who have these angry tirades have often been the victim of someone else’s rants and therefore have themselves been abused in the same way. They learned through their experiences. The cycle can stop!

Holding in anger is never the answer. Anger is like a hot coal; it only hurts when you hold on to it.

I believe that it’s not about how angry you are, it’s about how you handle that anger it’s also about what the real underlying causes are and how to learn to cope with those feelings in a meaningful effective way. When you know better, you do better!

Do you remember the old saying, “you can’t teach an old dog new tricks”? Research on the brain has proven that statement is false. The brain can be rewired or reprogrammed more easily than you may think.

Most people understand the concept of being ‘traumatized’ by a specific experience. In fact many of my clients suffer from the result of an uncomfortable experiences from the past. They become focused on the event and replay it in their mind renewing the experience over and over in their mind. The more it replays the bigger and scarier it gets. If your brain is so easily programmed, you should realize it can be reprogrammed!

Teaching my clients how to use their own mind to accomplish their goals is one of my greatest joys! A belief is just a thought they repeat over and over again. It’s not necessarily true.

If you are willing to let go of your old outdated fears and beliefs you can enjoy your life! Fears, phobias and negative thoughts are debilitating and very unnecessary.

A common theme with many of my clients is a desire for more confidence and better self esteem. They often focus on their mistakes whether in a bad relationship choice or mistakes made in life that they continue to beat themselves up about. Often there is someone in their life who likes to remind them of past mistakes or failures. You can retrain your brain by changing your self talk and repeatedly focus on the change you want to achieve. Although there may be a million things you did right the mind often only focuses on the negative stuff. That can be changed and hypnosis makes it easier. Remember, beliefs you have about yourself aren’t necessarily true! Even if they were true, learning from mistakes and changing your perspective about those lessons can completely change those old beliefs. Confidence and healthy self esteem, in my opinion, is the key to happiness.

Another example of retraining your brain relates to weight loss. People tell me they love chocolate or pizza or ice cream. Imagine how difficult it is to give up something you love. Begin by telling yourself you used to love it but now you just don’t. I know, it sounds simple and it is! It’s easier to give up something that is making you fat if you like it but don’t love it anymore. Think about the number of things you have given up and don’t think about anymore. Repetition is the secret to success. You must be willing to change your relationship with those things that create unwanted fat. Training your brain requires a real willingness to give up your old story and replace it with a new one.

There are red flags to be aware of in your mind.  When you hear yourself say, ‘I can’t ....” Stop and change the statement to, “ I just haven’t done it yet, but now I’m ready.” So much of our negative destructive self talk is habitual and being aware of it is the first step to reprogramming your mind.

Learning to train your brain is like learning self hypnosis. Your new programming becomes a new habit with repetition. You must be repetitive! The things in your mind you have repeated millions of times so don’t give up when change is not immediate. Most people are already doing self hypnosis, just the negative kind!
