THE LAW OF ATTRACTION
There is no great secret or mystery really. The Universal Laws basically are what keeps the universe moving and vibrating.
To understand the Law of Attraction,which is one of the universal laws we should start with understanding the Law of Vibration. Everything is made up from energy. Everything moves or vibrates. Nothing stays the same or still.
There is a constant vibration or motion continuously happening. Even the most solid of structures are vibrating.Vibration and movement create energy.
So, the thoughts you think and connect with on an emotional level are what controls your vibration or energy. If you are a really happy , upbeat and optimistic person this is what will vibrate from you. When you are in tuned with these thoughts or you are aware of them this is how you will feel. Others will feel or notice this from you.
There is a connection between your FEELINGS, what you ATTRACT to yourself, and the RESULTS you get in your life. The vibration, or feeling, you are in leads to the actions you take, and your actions create the results you experience in life.
The Law of Attraction is one of the most powerful laws. It has gained recognition over past years due to many books and films such as The Secret, You Word is Your Wand, Dear Universe etc.
“Your word is your wand” Florence Scovel Shine
“Ask for what you want and be prepare to get it” Maya Angelou
“Think the thought until you believe it, and once you believe it, it is” Abraham Hicks
“Whatever you hold in your mind on a constant basis is exactly what you will experience in your life” Tony Robbins
“What you think, you become. What you feel, you attract. What you imagine, you create”
So when someone has a bit of bad luck they might say…. bad things happen in threes! What do you think will happen….? Something else bad will happen. Simply because they are expecting it to because that is what they believe. On the other hand if someone wins €10 on a scratch card and they automatically think….brilliant, I am fortunate to have won this because i deserve it …….chances are something else good or positive will happen to them. Simply because they are expecting it to because thats what they believe.
Its like attracting like. We are know people who are filled with doom and gloom…..for whatever reason everything is an ordeal and they complain about everything. Now think about these people for a moment. Are they thriving? Are they happy with what they have? Are they critical of others?Are they constantly saying things about what they don’t want to do or to have?
Generally most people avoid being in the company of such negativity because it drains their energy sources right down. If you cant protect yourself energetically from these people you run the risk of also procrastinating. However, think about people who you know that you love being around. the ones who seem to lift your spirits by appreciating your company. The ones who are full of laughter and kindness. The ones who have a value on themselves high enough that they feel everything they have and everything they want is because they deserve it. Now these people are generally happy, motivated, confident, kind and considerate people. They seem to always be getting the things that they want in life. Why? Well there is no secret it ‘s down to the positive frame of mind, positive thoughts creating positive words creating positive actions and by the Law Of Attraction that is exactly what they will attract.
The key to all of this is knowing what your self worth is, knowing your value, knowing what you deserve and deciding you are getting it. This is not possible if you need to raise how you feel about or see yourself.
In order for any of the Law Of Attraction exercises to work or in order for you to start working with the Law Of Attraction you must belief in yourself. This can be so hard for many. Years of self esteem issues, abuse, trauma etc can take its toll.
This is why many will read a book such as The Secret and think its rubbish or it doesn’t work.
This starting point is right at the beginning and that is with yourself. Start small. Feel grateful for 3 things each day and replay this throughout the day. This helps create a positive energy and reminds us to focus on the good and not the negative.
Keep It Simple Starting KISS
Vision boards are totally useless otherwise.
Writing a cheque to yourself wont work.
Visualising bills as cheques is pointless.
Asking for a new car or to win the lotto wont happen.
Applying for the dream job will only be a dream.
Waiting for Mr Right will be a long wait.
Start simply with getting to know yourself again. Tune into who you are and what your values are.
Simple questions to ask yourself at the beginning:
How do you feel about yourself?
Are you happy with what you have?
Do you have fears or worries?
What am I looking for?
What makes me happy?
What do I need to change to feel good about everything I have already achieved?
Identifying with these and spending time thinking about the answers and deciding what needs to change in order to get to where you want to be is the start. Rise your vibration though acknowledging everything you have already achieved and accomplished. It could take time and practice but you’re worth it 🙂
Before the initial session of Hypnotherapy I conduct a general pre talk with you to explain what hypnosis is and how it works. You may ask any questions afterwards. This will give you a clear understanding of how your mind works and how it repaints to change using hypnotherapy.
Please read the following:
I’d like to spend a few moments with you before your session to talk a little bit about hypnosis and answer some questions that you might have. This will save us a lot of time when your session actually begins.
You have a pen and paper, please write down any questions you have so we can discuss them later.
The Mind Model
Now for you to understand how hypnosis works, it is important for you to know how your mind works.
First we have a conscious mind. This is where we are right now and most of the time. Below that level of awareness, we have the subconscious mind. And yet deeper still there is another part of us called the unconscious mind. Basically the unconscious mind does two things. First, it controls the strength or weakness of the immune system and, secondly, it controls the functions, the automatic body functions, such as; our heart beating, out breathing, and things of that order. During hypnosis we don’t use the unconscious mind.
The conscious mind is where we spend most of our time. It basically only does four things and no more.
The first thing it does, is analyses. This is the part of us that looks at problems, analyses them, figures out a way to solve those particular problems bothering us at the moment. It is also the part of us that makes hundreds of decisions we have to make on and average day, decisions that we think are automatic; but in fact, are not. Things like, “Should I open the door?”, “Should I turn the water on?” or “Should I tie my shoe laces?” Well, we think those are automatic functions, but we must make a decision as to whether or not we want to do those things.
The second part of the conscious mind is called will power. Now, we all familiar with will power. We have all heard “I’m going to put down this pack of cigarettes and nothing on the earth will make me start smoking again!” We all know how long that generally lasts. When people go on a diet, how long does that generally last? Just until our will-power weakens and the old habit pattern comes back again.
The next part of the conscious mind is what called working memory. That’s the memory we need every day. This is short term memory
The final part is the critical factor the blocking part of the conscious mind, this is the part which fools the mind into believing or justifying behaviours or thoughts. That’s all the conscious mind does. It is logical, very analytical and frequently wrong.
Now where the REAL you, me and everybody else lives is the level below the conscious mind which is called the sub-conscious mind. The sub-conscious mind is extremely powerful. It can make you into anything you want to be. Rich and famous, thin or overweight, happy or sad. To understand how the subconscious mind works, you need to understand that it very much like a computer and operates in a similar way too. You know that if you have a computer with no programs on it, it just sits there and doesn’t do anything. Now this computer can only operate based on the programming that is placed on it and it must operate on that programming, it has no choice. You know if you change the programming on the computer, it can no longer operate on the old programming and it must operate on the new programming information that has been loaded into it.
Well this is the way our sub-conscious mind works. It’s just like a computer. It functions on the same rules and regulations as an electronic one does; only it is more powerful. From the day we are born our computer is programmed every day through our life experiences. Every day we add programming to our internal computer. Now, the primary rule of our computer is this. It must, make us into the type of person that it perceives us to be based on all the programming that has been placed on it and will continue to be placed into it until the day we die.
So what is the operational software in out internal computers? First is all our memory, since the day we were born. The subconscious mind is like a video camera. Everything that has happened to you, everything that you have ever heard, seen, smelled or tasted is locked permanently into memory banks of your subconscious mind. We never forget anything. If there is a reason to, in hypnosis we can access that memory bank and it seems like we can actually travel back in time. For example, in regression hypnosis you can travel back and re-live your first birthday. Now, this is more that recall, it is actually like you are there, and it is happening all over again. You can see what happened, you can smell, you can taste, you can hear very clearly. We never forget anything in the subconscious, only at the conscious level.
The second programming we have in the inner mind, the subconscious mind, is habits. We automatically respond in a certain fashion when something else happens. When the phone rings, for example, we don’t look at it and wonder what it is, we automatically pick it up and depending on our mood; we answer it in a certain manner.
The next part of out subconscious mind is the emotional part. Of course, we wouldn’t want to be without emotions, love and caring and all those other good emotions, but sometimes our emotions get us into trouble. The conscious mind cannot deal with emotions in any way; that is not part of its job.
The next thing in the subconscious mind, and probably the most important part of it is our protective mind. It must protect us against danger, real or imagined. You see, something imagined by the subconscious mind is just as is it were really happening, it can’t tell the difference. And it must protect us against danger.
The last property of the subconscious mind is a negative one. Although the subconscious is so powerful, it is also the laziest part of us. It doesn’t like to do the work that is required to accept positive suggestions to give change in areas where we would like to have change. It likes to keep things the way there are, it takes too much work to make change in a positive way. And positive suggestions are the most difficult things to get into our subconscious minds. On the other hand, negative suggestions go into this inner part of us like a hot knife through butter, because it doesn’t take any work to accept a negative suggestion.
Let me show you how this works. Take a very heavy person and they get out of the shower. They are standing in front of the mirror drying themselves. What do you think they are saying to themselves as they are looking into the mirror? “I’m Fat”. Now, this idea or taught or words go right into the subconscious mind and the subconscious mind says, “Yes, that matches the programming that I have in here, that matches the perception I have of you”. Therefore it accepts the suggestion so the perception of that person becomes stronger and they become heavier. On the other hand, if you take the same heavy person and stand them in front of a mirror and have them say, “I’m thin, I’m trim and I’m attractive”. That goes toward the subconscious mind and the subconscious mind says, “No, that does not match the programming”, “it would take too much work to change my programming”, and it’s not allowed in.
Well, how do we get suggestion into that subconscious mind? Well, here we use something called hypnosis. Now, what hypnosis does is this. It allows us to by-passes the critical factor, the blocking part of our conscious mind.
You are not asleep
Now, when we are in the state of hypnosis, it is not what you expect it to be. Our bodies, if we are using a relaxation type of hypnosis, are very relaxed; but, the more we go into hypnosis, the more our conscious mind becomes alert. In the deeper levels of hypnosis, your conscious mind is two to three hundred percent more alert than you are at this very moment. All of your five senses, including hearing, smelling, tasting, and seeing are hundreds of times better than they are right now.
So when you are in hypnosis, you are not asleep, you are extremely alert, probably more alert and clear minded than you have ever been before. Now the important thing to understand about this is that the conscious mind takes on a different role when you are in hypnosis. I want you to think of it as playing the role of the guardian of the gates protecting you. When you receive a suggestion in hypnosis, you hear it loud and clear.
Four Mental Attitudes
Now when you hear that suggestion, and these are the tools of success or failure with Hypnosis. When you hear that suggestion with your conscious mind, you must, and you really don’t have and choice, make a decision about that suggestion. The decision you make determines whether that suggestion is allowed to enter your subconscious mind or whether it is rejected. If it is allowed to enter, you will have the change that you are here to achieve, if it is rejected, there will be no change.
What are these choices? The first one could be, when you hear the suggestion, you think or say to yourself, “I like this suggestion, I want it!”. This mental attitude at the conscious level allows that suggestion to go into the computer, your subconscious mind, and change begins.
Unfortunately, you have other choices. The next choice could be, well, actually hating the suggestion, or feeling that it is something against your morals or beliefs which would be rejected immediately, but perhaps that suggestion is just a tiny little bit uncomfortable for you. Well, if that suggestion sounds just the tiniest bit uncomfortable to you for any reason, it is automatically blocked by the critical factor of the conscious mind and it is not allowed to enter the computer and there is no change. The critical factor will not let anything into your subconscious that you do not like, even if it’s only a slight dislike of that suggestion.
The next choice could be that you are neutral about the suggestion, you don’t care if you get it or you don’t care if you don’t get it. It is a kind of meaningless suggestion to you. The conscious mind blocks this suggestion and it is not allowed to enter the computer.
The only time a suggestion is allowed to go into your computer is if you take the mental attitude when you hear the suggestion “I like that suggestion, I want it”. And that’s how easy it is.
If you allow me to be your guide, I’ll show you how to place yourself in a beautiful state of hypnosis. Feeling the physical relaxation and mental alertness. If you allow me to be your guide, I’ll show you how to stay there until we are finished. If you ever don’t want to be in this beautiful relaxed state, the slightest taught by you and it’s over and you are back to your normal state of awareness. But if you follow my guidance, I’ll show you how to stay there.
And then the most important thing of all is, if you accept the suggestions given to you with the correct mental attitude, “I like it, I want it”, you’ll have change in the way you want it. If you take one of the other choices, the change you want will be much more difficult. I can’t force a suggestion into your main. Only you and allow it to happen.
Hypnosis is a 100% consent state by you. You must allow things to happen. You can stop them from happening with the slightest thought if you don’t want it to happen. I want you to know that anyone who wants Hypnosis, can go into a very deep level of Hypnosis, how fast? (Snap Fingers) Just like that!
The only thing that keeps a person from going into that beautiful state of physical relaxation and mental alertness is that they have a fear or misconception about what Hypnosis really is.
Fears and Misconceptions
I would like to talk to you briefly about some of the more common fears and misconceptions of Hypnosis.
Some people feel that when you are in Hypnosis, that you are asleep. Well, I want you to know that when your mind is 2 to 300% more alert that you are now at this very moment, this is about as far from sleep as you are ever going to get. Hypnosis has nothing to do with sleep.
Some people are afraid they won’t “wake up” from Hypnosis and they won’t. I agree with that, I have never seen anybody walk up from Hypnosis. There is only one thing that you can “wake up” form and that is sleep. If you are not asleep, you cannot wake up. Anytime you want to emerge from hypnosis, all you have to do is have the slightest thought that you don’t want to be in this relaxed state anymore and instantly, it’s over and you are back to your normal awareness.
There is another powerful misconception that some people have that says that I can control you and make you do anything I want you to do. I have to be honest with you, I wish that that was possible because then I could guarantee your success. But remember you have those four choices when you hear a suggestion and the only time the suggestion is allowed to enter your computer is if you say, “I like it, I want that suggestion”. I can’t force a suggestion in, I can’t control you. What mental attitude you take when you hear a suggestion determines success or failure.
Some people have the misconception that they will tell me all their deep dark secrets when they are in Hypnosis. For the same reasons of mental alertness, you are more in control of anything you choose to do or say while you are in Hypnosis than you are right now. If you don’t want to tell me something, then you simply won’t. If I was to ask you for information that was none of my business, you would simply tell me that it is none of my business. No one can make you divulge information that is proprietary.
Some people say, “That all sound reasonable but I’ve seen a stage Hypnotist work and I know he was controlling those people on stage. I’ve seen them run around like chickens and bark like dog’s” So Let me tell you how stage Hypnosis works.
When the stage Hypnotist comes out and gives a short lecture on Hypnosis saying he is showing the entertainment side of Hypnosis and there is also a clinical side, he tells the people, “Really good subjects are those individuals who have the best ability to imagine, a wonderful imagination and the ability to concentrate,” and he will give the audience a test for imagination and concentration, what he is actually doing is testing the audience for two very important things. First, who goes into Hypnosis quickly and more importantly, he is testing those people to find out who want to have fun and who is uninhibited in public. These are the people he invites up on stage. They usually enter Hypnosis very rapidly and very easily. And those people because they want to have fun, take the mental attitude, I like it, I want it to work and it does.
Many times on the stage, a person will think they want to do those things, but when it comes time to actually have it happen, they don’t have the correct mental attitude and the suggestion is ineffective. These people, the stage Hypnotist sends back to their seats, or, if it’s long enough into the show, he will sit them on a stage chair and ignore them for the rest of the show.
Stage Hypnosis operates by the same rules as clinical Hypnosis, you always have the choice as to whether or not you want that suggestion. If you don’t want it, truthfully don’t want it, it will be rejected and there will be no change.
So you see, Hypnosis is up to you. If you accept the suggestions with the correct mental attitude, I like it, I know it will work, yes, you will have 100% success.
I know you are going to enjoy our session together. Thank you for giving me this time with you.
Most of know that familiar feeling of weight creeping up on us and before we know it our mid rift is simply beginning to hang over our belt not to mention the less visible belly button. There are so many reasons and excuses and unfortunately our subconscious mind is really clever at brushing it under the carpet. Hormones changes leading to a slowing metabolism, not enough time because the kids are on the go all the time, lack of energy, eating on the go, snacking between meals….the reasons are endless. But what id=f a few simple changes to your lifestyle with little effort helped to change your thought process and prepare yourself for a healthier life and body with little effort? Interested?….read pn please.
Start with the intention of following through and not giving in from the beginning. The week before you want to start implementing change begin with a few simple mind exercises
- On waking each day feel grateful for everything you have in your life so far. Gratitude for the warm home, job, family etc whatever is important to you. Focus on this a few time for a few minutes each day. Before going to sleep feel grateful for your day and the fact that you want to implement change.
- Continue to eat as you usually do but take a mental note of what you have eaten. Drink plenty of water. Warmed water with fruit infused can be more exciting to drink.
- Spend a few minutes each day imagining what your end result will look like. Even look at some past photos when you felt healthier and weighted less.
- Buy one medium sized BLUE plate and if possible a BLUE glass.
And now for the following week……the work begins
- Continue to focus on the exercises from the week before especially increasing water intake.
- Plan the meals/menu for the week so you don’t over shop.
- Use fresh and unprocessed food as much as possible. Less carbs and more protein. Eliminate bread, toast and wraps. Starting the day with 2 eggs scrambled or poached is great and filling especially when tomatoes, spinach and a small amount of feta is yum. This is filling and there is a chance of less snacking.
- Have a homemade veg soup mid morning if you feel hungry. Lunches are easy, such as chicken fillet salad or salmon salad.
- Dinner is sensible by have veg instead of pasta or potatoes with meat (not processed) steak, mince, chicken etc.
- Serve all your meals on a BLUE place and use a BLUE glass. Blue is a calming colour but there is also scientific proof that blue suppresses the appetite. There is very little blue in the natural world and food. Yes blueberries are blue but theres not a lot of other blue natural foods.
- Using a medium size plate or a smaller plate than normal also sends a signal to the brain that the plate is full.
- Slow down eating and chewing. this gives the brain time to acknowledge you have eaten and are feel full.
- In between meals it is ok to have hunger pains and to get used to them. It’s simply the boys way of telling us that its time to prepare a meal. In the meantime the body is busy digesting what it can from the previous meal and preparing for the next. Burning up extra calories.
- Sit down for every meal. No more eating on the go.
Start with these simple changes and remember that if you are over eating or eating the wrong food your mind has become conditioned to this so changing the thought process around can take time. Get out into the fresh air more and walk a little each day. This gives clarity of mind and helps release happy endorphins. Increasing daily exercise is always going to be beneficial.
It is always great to have help and support with changing any of the minds subconscious habits especially around food and exercise.
Hypnotherapy has been hugely successful for many making the journey less effort and a more pleasurable experience.
