Self Empowerment: The Power of Words

Self Empowerment, the power of words can set you  | Avalon Hypnosis Center 220 S Woodland Blvd #F, Deland FL 32720 (386) 490-4180free.

Another important key in becoming self power is realizing how words affect the subconscious mind, especially when one of the subconscious gateways are open, as it is in Hypnosis.

Numerous religious books have been written throughout this century that recommend the use of affirmations. Just check the bookstore of your churches and you easily find books on affirmations.

For example:

Affirmations became more popular in the 70s and 80s, but all too few seem to know how to properly structure and use them. Used wisely, words become powerful tools to help us create motivation and success attitudes in the subconscious mind. If  misconstruction or misused, auto suggestions and affirmations can actually move or goals further from reach. So we must use caution when using affirmations.

Remember the old saying? Sticks and Stones may break my bones, but words will never harm me. It is my professional opinion that inappropriate words can and do hurt us when a subconscious Gateway is open.

Allow me to illustrate my own personal experience, of how the power of words can produce Self Empowerment.

When my marriage broke up, my sales hit rock bottom even though I had always had success. a successful executive told me personally, ” Nobody does well in sales for two years after a divorce!” this negative idea entered my mind like a powerful hip on the suggestion. We call this eyes open hypnosis, NLP, neurolinguistic programming. Afterwards, I found myself still doing the same actions as in previous years, but without results. My sales plummeted, and the following year it dropped to a fraction of the previous level. All the self-help books of the world did not help. I went to my friend who was a hypnotist and he helped me through this. Perhaps another reason for me becoming a hypnotist.

Today I know what happened. During the crisis of the divorce, my subconscious mind believed what this friend of mine in authority had told me during a time of high emotional anxiety on my part. My mind replayed that suggestion like a broken record, and it became a negative affirmation. The Gateway of my subconscious mind was open because this was a person of authority, emotions were running high.Now let me share some other examples that many people relate to. A mother exclaims loudly to her child, “Don’t spill the milk!” The glass often gets tipped over within seconds,because the child’s mind immediately creates the image of spilling the milk. Also, parents often tell their children, “Don’t forget your coat!” Need I explain what happens next? next time, simply tell your child: Remember your coat.

A golfer may say, “I’m not going into the water. “ And where does the ball land? this same concept applies to other sports as well. For example, during an important baseball game, a teammate says,  “Don’t strike out!” How often does the feared strikeout manifest?

Because of the power of words, we need to be careful what we say. Careless use of negative statements just might enter one of the subconscious gateways with adverse results. Consider the risk of the following statements.

  • That makes me sick.
  • That gives me a pain in my_____.
  • This job is a headache.
  • I’m going to finish this if it kills me.
  • that almost gave me a heart attack.
  • That will be the death of me.
  • No pain, no gain.
  • This is a backbreaking job.
  • That makes me sad inside.
  • That burns me up, it makes my blood boil.
  • He ( she) is driving me crazy.
  • How could I be so stupid?

Have you found your self using any of these negative suggestions? These are the types of suggestions that can enter your subconscious mind, when there is a gateway opened.

An example of open gateways, may be nothing more than the repetition of the statements. or when you are sad, angry, tired, or people of authority saying things to you, whether they mean to harm you or not. The power of words can harm yourself and others.

As a hypnotist, I now understand the importance of semantics when dealing with the subconscious. Affirmations are like hypnotic suggestions, and must be constructed properly.

The power of words through affirmations, done properly can empower you.

And Hypnosis can produce a wonderful Self Empowerment for you, through the power of words for a happier more successful life.

Memory Improvement with Hypnosis, Accelerated Studying

pretty female college student studying in the university libraryHypnosis Improvement for Memory Improvement and  Accelerated Studying

In Hypnosis Accelerating Memory and Studying we can alter your perception of time.

 Two minutes of Hypnosis time can seem like an hour – as we can slow time down – or an hour of Hypnosis may simply fly by, as we speed time up.

This natural phenomena is known as time distortion and happens when we’re in a comfortable state of relaxation.

Sometimes without even experiencing Hypnosis we can notice how, when we’re waiting for an exciting event to occur – each minute can seem like an hour, and when we’re really enjoying ourselves the time just goes by so quickly.

And you can learn a great deal in a few seconds, or you can spend hours learning nothing – all that matters is that you decide which you are going to do. And subconscious knowledge is the most reliable knowledge of all, this is where the Accelerated Studying and Memory Improvement comes in.

That’s why if you ever learned to ride a bike you’ll never forget – and why typists and pianists for example don’t even need to think about what they do – they just do it. And your subconscious mind is open and receptive to the impressions it receives.

It remembers all that it hears and all that it sees. It remembers all that it feels and senses. It remembers all that it touches and tastes. And even when you thought you forgot something, it was still there, deep in your subconscious mind, just waiting for the right time to pop up.

When its time for your study you find that you mentally prepare yourself by putting outside of your mind, any distracting thoughts. You agree with yourself beforehand how long you will study and you stick to it, and if any unwanted thoughts try to intrude, you simply put them out of your mind until your study period has come to an end.This is what Hypnosis can do for Memory Improvement and Accelerated Study Habits

You find that because you are organizing yourself in this way, your mind is more focused and ready to learn. You find it easy to concentrate and to retain what you learn. And you really enjoy studying as you see it as a means to an end. Every day at your per-agreed time, you get into the habit of studying to succeed.

You find that you are able to think much more clearly, focused and you are able to concentrate much more easily. You become so deeply absorbed and interested in the subject that you are studying that you will want to give your full attention to what you are studying, to the exclusion of everything else. Because you are so interested and absorbed in your studies, it becomes so easy for you to grasp and understand all the things that you learn. And all the things that you do learn impress themselves on your memory to enable you to remember them more easily. Hypnosis for Memory Improvement and Accelerated Studying is by far the fast track to improving your life.


Testimonial, Wonderful and Amazing

Hi Katheryn, My Testimonial to you is a Wonderful and Amazing Think.

 I just wanted to say this Testimonial is to just how amazingly bizarre today’s session was.

 I have felt buoyant and exhausted all afternoon.  I can’t thank you enough for everything you have opened up for me.  I was halfway home and wanted to turn around, run back into your office and pay you to stay for the rest of the day to do it again.  I don’t understand everything that happened to me today, or even fully understand how I’m feeling now.  I had to take some time to digest it all before I wrote this, because I wanted to rush home and just type a giant Thank You on the screen, but I thought that might be a bit impulsive. 

I know that I’m in turbo babble, but I just feel so incredibly full of positive emotion, I don’t know who else or how to even try to express it all.  I haven’t felt this serenely content in a very long time.  I couldn’t even try to tell you when the last time I felt like this was, if ever to this extent.  I am the only person who knows some of the things that I discussed today  I can’t begin to understand how you instilled that kind of trust in me for you.  But I am so very grateful that you did.  

So I guess that I just really want to say THANK YOU.  You have been wonderful for me and this Testimonial is to you.

Hypnotherapy and Workouts

Hypnosis can improve workouts and help get you over that plateau! With hypnosis you can expect:

• Program endurance: The ‘will’ always breaks before the muscle unless you are specifically conditioned for endurance.

• Increase strength: Weight lifting increase bench press by 30% through hypnosis.

• Develop a new technique through in-trance visualization without the intervention of gravity. Used for sports where gravity prevents an athlete from practicing techniques in slow motion (i.e. Diving, Gymnastics.)

• Increase motivation: Improving the desire and dedication to train and perform hard.

• Improve focus: Eliminating mental distractions and barriers while training or performing.

• Install the self-image of an athlete: Change the view of the ‘under dog’ or ‘couch potato’ to that of a sports person.

• Install traits of a professional athlete.

• Increase an athlete’s speed by slowing down their perception of time, hence they will run faster, punch quicker etc.

• Remove hesitations/freezing/choking during competition.

• Learn to enjoy the ‘pain’ of sports.

• Revisit a previous good performance and set up anchors to trigger that resourceful state again when required.

• Good nutrition instillation: Change to fitness attitudes and behaviors. Stop viewing food as a source of taste pleasure to viewing food as a source of fuel for the body. (as athletes do)

• Remove mental obstacles to success: Fear of success or the repercussions that it may bring (i.e. Pressure to keep performing at a high level.)

• Install complex behaviors unconsciously: Reduces over consciousness of complex movements which can have an adverse effect on sporting abilities.

Reduce that Stress

Reduce that Stress “Life’s is to short.”Adult business man with stress  I know you’ve heard that before,Reduce that Stress or else.

Negativity is contagious, but so is Happiness. Which feels better to you? Start today and feel better tomorrow.   I remember my father saying “Smile and soon it will all be better.” He was right, when you smile even when you force the smile, soon it really does become your reality.

And you really don’t need a reason to be happy, I mean what are you waiting for, as they say create your own reality. Of course I’m not saying you should put your head in the sand and walk around with a silly grin on your face all day. Just try smiling, and soon you will create an inner peace that at the very least helps someone else with their day.

This leads me to some great tips on How to Reducing That Stress. And learning to make a habit out of being happy.

1. If its money that you feel makes you happy, avoid situations that make you feel deprived- seek out situations where things are in your favor.

2.You may want to look at those negative thoughts a little closer. As they say, “step outside the box.” Then try a happier positive thought.

3.Gratitude: Research shows that daily affirmations of gratitude raises you’re level of happiness. Make your lists today of what you are grateful for, and say it daily.

4.Progress makes people feel better. Design your day so you have a feeling of progress. My father always liked to mow his grass so he could have instant gratification.

5. Studies show couples are happier and live longer than single people. Make friends and be a friend. Try to hangout with happy people. Get involved in helping out in your community.                                   

6.Try sending love or positive thoughts to people. Find something nice to say to others, not only will they fill better, you will too. Many people are  deprived of simple compliments. Make a heart happy today.

Which leads me to another topic Hypnotherapy and how it can help Reduce and oreliminate bad stress and it’s effects upon your “Mind, Body and Spirit. All the above suggestions and more can be reinforced with the use of Hypnotherapy. 

Hypnosis to Improve Athletic Performance

Hypnosis is a powerful tool to Athletes of all levels for Performance.  It helps them to:

  • Accelerate Athletic Performance
  • Focus On SuccessContrasty portrait of a sportsman
  • Enhance Sports Confidence
  • Release Mental Blocks, Fears and Limiting Beliefs

There are two ways in which imagery in hypnosis works to Improve Athletic Performance:

To Improve Athletic Performance, first, through training the mind and muscles to perform as you wish. The subconscious mind is like a giant computer that directs all bodily behavior and automatically accepts any image it receives as real and true. It lacks the ability to distinguish between fact and fiction.  Once it “sees” the image of perfect Athletic performance it immediately sends electrical and chemical messages throughout the body, directing it to comply with what it perceives as real and true. Studies have shown actual duplication of muscle and nerve activity during imagery and even new neural growth as a result of imaging. This reinforces the learning and improves performance automatically. It is not all in your mind … actual physical changes occur as a result of Hypnosis and imagery.

Second, is the ability to be both relaxed and productive simultaneously. Numerous studies of top athletes recognize that their ability to perform with passion and emotion, while in a relaxed state, has a direct impact on their ability to perform so remarkably. Athletic Performance is inhibited by stress and Hypnosis teaches you to remove the blocks that inhibit peak Performance.

Mental Rehearsal, Regular visualization creates and reinforces the confidence necessary for top performance.  The visualized image convinces the subconscious that this achievement is possible.  The automatic nervous system performs in exactly the same manner as followed during a physical rehearsal.  Neuromuscular coordination improves.  “What your mind can conceive, you can achieve.”

How Hypnosis Works

Whether you desire to improve your personal Athletic Performance or are training for the Olympics, Hypnosis is a powerful tool for your success. Hypnosis can release any mental blocks, fears or limiting beliefs you may have that are keeping you from athletic excellence. Hypnosis also builds your personal self-confidence in yourself and your abilities, assisting you to focus on a successful outcome, instead of fearing a poor performance.

One of many effective tools used in Hypnosis to Improve Athletic Performance is called anchoring. A memory or image of Athletic excellence is recalled or imagined. When the client mentally reaches the peak of that performance excellence, the associated emotion is anchored or reinforced, producing what is commonly known as muscle memory. That memory or positive feeling is then automatically released during your peak performance times.

Hypnosis also helps you mentally focus on the performance itself, eliminating outside distractions and self-sabotaging thoughts so you are calm and capable of channeling all your energies into your physical activity.

Mental imagery is also incorporated into hypnosis for athletic performance. The fact of the matter is your unconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between a real or imagined experience. Some people are excellent at visualizing, while others are naturally kinesthetic or “feel” things. How would it feel to cross the finish line in your best time ever, or win the gold? What would you be feeling, thinking, seeing or hearing? Regardless of how you imagine a successful future event, your imagined success programs you in a direction for positive results.

According to the AOA (American Optometric Association), researchers have discovered that people use the same areas of the brain whether they actually perform or merely visualize an action in their mind. Studies conducted in 1998 by J. Stanos, a professor at Harvard University, have proven a definite link between visualization and performance. A group was taught how to use visualization and a placebo group was taught to just think about an unrelated activity. Those who used visualization before performing their task performed nearly perfectly, while the placebo group was only successful 55% of the time.

The Power of Your Mind!
Competition can be intimidating and fear of humiliation often results in diminished skills.  To overcome this, you can use hypnosis at any time during competition.  Once you have learned sports hypnosis techniques you can utilize self hypnosis in seconds.

Most athletes have experienced the exhilarating feeling of being in the zone” (groove, flow, etc.). When you use hypnosis you can be in the zone on command. Your opponents will never know you are using hypnosis in competition!

Self-hypnosis is best learned under the guidance of a Certified Hypnotist who understands your blocks as well as your goals for the future.  Learning self-hypnosis while in a state of hypnosis offers the added benefit of receiving a powerful  post-hypnotic suggestion or “trigger” that instantly facilitates the hypnotic state on command in your waking state, when you need it.

Hypnosis can’t guarantee you first place or the Olympic Gold, but it can dramatically Improve your Athletic Performance and your self-confidence. Begin today!


10 Tips For Overcoming Sleep Problems

Insomnia or Sleep Problems are more common that you might think.

One of the most common requests we have as hypnotists is for assistance with sleep disorders or insomnia. There are so many effective and efficient ways in which to overcome these types of problems through hypnosis that success can be as easy as inducing the hypnotic state and delivering your favorite suggestions for healthy, rejuvenating sleep. But there are many simple things a person can do to assist in the process of achieving fulfilling rest.  Following are the top 10 simple, yet effective, things you can do to reduce sleep problems or insomnia.

  1. Be Consistent – Going to bed and rising at the same time every day strengthens your internal clock. It will establish a habit of achieving sleep at regular times.
  2. Everything in Moderation – No matter how good it might feel to lie in bed for as long as possible, too much of a good thing is not good. Long periods spent in bed can lead to shallow and fragmented sleep.
  3. Get the Lead Out – Research shows that regular daily exercise promotes deeper more restorative sleep. Even light exercise such as a daily walk is very beneficial, just make sure not to exercise right before bedtime. It takes time to wind down from activity.
  4. Keep Your Cool – When the heat rises over 75 degrees it can lead to less REM sleep and more periods of waking. Cold rooms are no better; the ideal temperate for restful sleep is between 68 and 72 degrees.
  5. Let Them Eat Cake – Research shows that a light snack before turning in for the night tends to aid sleep. Be aware that heavy meals though will interfere with restful sleep.
  6. What the Doctor Ordered – On occasion, a sleep aid, whether over-the-counter or prescribed may be helpful, but be aware that regular use of sleep aids may promote dependency and actually increase problems. Use them only as a last resort.
  7. No Java Jive, No Butts About It – Cut out caffeine in the evening. Plain and simple, it disturbs sleep. Caffeine can be found in coffee, tea, colas, chocolate and many other sources so be aware. Tobacco use also disturbs sleep. If you are a smoker, consider hypnosis to free yourself of that old habit, but until you do, stay away from tobacco in the evenings.
  8. One for the Road – Cut out the nightcaps. While alcohol sometimes helps people fall asleep faster, the resulting chemically induced sleep is disrupted when the effects of alcohol begin to wear off.
  9. The Sound of Silence – People who sleep through anything can also have their sleep disrupted by noise or unusual sounds. Not waking up does not mean your sleep is not disturbed. Create an atmosphere insulated from outside sound or get a white noise machine to mask sounds. Even a small fan in the room can be effective.
  10. Kiss and Make Up – Never go to bed angry. Going to bed with work or worry on your mind is the perfect way to lose sleep. Always find time to resolve your day or clear your mind before you turn out the lights for the night. This is the perfect time to practice your self-hypnosis or listen to a relaxation recording.
