Good Health, Plain and Simple

The first time I ever read that my mind could influence my health—I’ll admit it—I sorta balked. Sure, maybe it was possible for some people, but not me. I kept reading, intrigued really, at the connection of my mind and body. And the connection my emotions had to—well, everything. 

By the time my brain was done absorbing the information, I was a believer. I knew I could positively affect my health. And I did.

I decided I was done being sick 3-4 times per year, like pretty much everyone else I knew. During one of my early self-hypnosis sessions, I gave myself post hypnotic suggestions: I am healthy. No illness can enter my body. I am well. My immune system is strong. Stuff like that.

I bought this belief heart and soul. It became a part of me, and I expected nothing less than good health. Well, fall came that year and my kids went back to school, I waited optimistically. School always started the cycle. One of the kids would bring home a bug and it would cycle through the family for weeks. Except this time, I stayed well. For the first time ever, I didn’t get sick in the fall. Or that winter. Or the next fall or winter. In fact, I went over 4 years without so much as a sniffle. FOUR YEARS.

It took a near divorce to sidetrack my belief in wellness and my body’s ability to maintain it. I started to question myself and whether it was me and my belief system or if it was just a fluke. Of course, I’d never gone over 6 months without getting sick before, but even still—the stress of a relationship breakdown had me questioning everything. And the more I questioned it—the closer I came to illness. Because I allowed a belief that I had successful held for over 4 years to begin to crack. The moment I began saying, “I don’t know if I can stay well this fall when the kids return to school” —was it. The strong foundation I’d built, now was faltering, and I was solely responsible for it. And yes, I finally got sick.

The great thing about all of this is—-I learned more about myself, my power, my mind and how truly influential I can be on my own life and health. I realize that many illnesses start in our brain, or at the very least fester and grow there. If we can use the magnificent power in our minds to keep our immune system strong and healthy—there’s not much we can’t do.


Hypnosis and Good Health

For decades, hypnosis and hypnotherapy have been successful in treating numerous physical health issues. People who are aware and have the right tools for healing and health can influence everything from their weight to their blood pressure. This is because all of our body / mind / spirit systems are connected and affect one another. If you feel the burden of mental stress, surely your body will suffer as well. There’s really no way to separate this connection. That’s why it’s so important to step into the shoes-of-awareness and take responsibility for the state of your mind and body.

Now, I know all of this is much easier said than done. In fact, the longer you’ve had a pattern of behavior, the more difficult it can be to change it or overcome its negative effects. However, tools of the mind, such as hypnosis, can make the process a smooth one. So, instead of wrestling with willpower and conscious effort, you can go straight to the heart of the problem and resolve it where it stands. For some, the healing, transformation process is instant—for others, it does take a bit of time—but not much. As little as a few minutes a day for 30 days can solidify a new behavior and put you on the path to health and success.

Did you know there are people who have used hypnosis alone for surgery, and no other anesthesia or meds? Sounds crazy right? With some proper training you can literally train your brain to induce numbness WITHOUT any drugs at all. So why wouldn’t you be able to work on lowering your blood pressure or lose excess pounds with the same technique?

You can. Hypnosis can be your go-to assistant for all of life’s problems. When they crop up, you pull out the sword of brain power and stop anything from spiraling out of control. Learn hypnosis. Your health is waiting.
