HypnosisNotMagic-DivineMindInstitute

Hypnosis isn’t a magic wand…although many people think that’s what it feels like. Hypnosis can help and enable you to make great and positive changes in your life, changes that in the past may have felt impossible to make.

Hypnosis used to be thought of as simply a parlor trick, entertainment and not taken very seriously, but over the years it has proven to be a very useful and powerful tool that helps with self-improvement, and is recognized and endorsed as such by The American Medical Association.

Some of the conditions that can be improved through Hypnosis are:

  • Increased self-confidence
  • Weight loss
  • Accomplishing goals
  • Ending bad habits such as:
    • smoking
    • overeating
    • nail biting
  • Post traumatic stress disorder
  • Grief
  • Depression
  • Sleep disorders
  • Fears and phobias
  • Anxiety
  • Pain control
  • Increased focus and attention
  • Help with relationships
  • Overcome procrastination
  • and so much more!

Hypnosis is Simple, safe and relaxing…

HypnoticFocus-DivineMindInstituteHypnosis is an age-old technique that gets its name from the the Greek word “Hypnos”, who is the Greek god of sleep. Hypnosis uses guided relaxation and focused concentration, which can put you in a state of deep awareness, or often referred to as being in a trance.

Your are always safe while in an hypnotic state or trance because:

  1. Hypnosis is a state of concentration and relaxation – NOT sleep or loss of consciousness.
  2. You are always in a natural state of mind and will never lose self-control or surrender your will.
  3. You never lose touch with reality.
  4. Because of numbers 1-3, a Hypnotist can never make you do anything you don’t want to do.

Can Hypnosis help you?

MagicWand-DivineMindInstituteYour mind is a powerful thing…is it ready for change? Are you ready for change? Hypnosis can only be as effective as you are ready….remember, Hypnosis is not a magic wand, but if you’re ready, it can feel like one!

Isn’t it time you start living your life the way you want to?

Self Confidence

How Can You Build Your Self Confidence and Self Esteem?

“It’s not what you say out of your mouth that determines your life, it’s what you whisper to yourself that has the most power!”Robert T. Kiosaki

Build Self Confidence - Divine Mind IntsituteWhat do you whisper to yourself?

Are you your own worst critic? Do you respect yourself? Do you respect your achievements? Do you value yourself?

The only one of those questions you should have answered “no” to is the first one.

How you feel about yourself and whether or not you believe in yourself determines your level of self confidence. We’re not talking about your ego, we’re talking about your self- worth, your emotional self image.

Lack of self confidence

When you have low self confidence, you usually focus on weaknesses rather than all the positive things about yourself. You are critical of yourself, you have a more difficult time coping with the challenges of everyday life, and eventually relationships, and your mental and physical health can be effected.

Look outside yourself to determine why your confidence is low, because it usually comes from outside sources:

  • A bad experience
  • Big disappointments
  • NoSelfEsteem-DivineMindInstituteChildhood experiences
    • Harsh and unfair criticism
    • Any type of abuse
    • Being taught that you are a failure if you had failed experiences
    • Being shunned by your peers
  • Traumatic events can leave you feeling you are not in control of your own life, or make you feel that you are to blame for whatever happened.
  • Today’s unrealistic perceptions of what beauty and success looks like makes you doubt yourself and gives you the feeling that no matter what, you can’t measure up.

Your subconscious mind stores all of your experiences, especially from your youth, both positive and negative, it remembers everything you’ve ever heard, seen or done. When this stored data reminds you of strong negative feelings, you feel less about yourself than you really are.

Some of the signs that your lack of self confidence or self esteem has taken over your life:

  • Not being satisfied with your life, always wishing it was better
  • Feeling bored, always tired, hopeless or depressed
  • Feeling you have nothing to look forward to
  • Considering yourself to be a failure
  • Always feeling fearful of making a mistake or of receiving criticism
  • You always feel defensive

How Can hypnosis Help?

Because of the problems that low self-esteem can cause you, it’s so very important that you seek help to keep the long term problems I mentioned above from developing. And due to the fact that low self confidence is rooted in your subconscious mind, hypnosis is the perfect way to get the help you need. It can help you understand your own worth.

Roadblocks to Self Confidence - Divine Mind InstituteIt is your subconscious that determines everything you think, say and do. And because it remembers everything you have ever experienced and how it affected you, it determines what you whisper to yourself, which either builds you up or tears you down.

NLP and Hypnosis are powerful tools that will help you tear down the road blocks that have kept your self image low.

Hypnosis is a peaceful feeling in a safe and relaxing place where you are able to identify what obstacles are keeping you from accepting yourself in a positive way. It can help eliminate the negative self-talk (which will be the topic of a future blog post) that goes on in your head all the time.

Just imagine the wonderful person that you really are!

Keep New Years Resolutions

What Keeps You From Keeping New Years’ Resolutions?

Resolutions - Divine Mind InstituteIt’s the first of a New Year, have you made your New Years’ Resolutions?

According to a survey by Franklin Covey, only about 23% of those who make New Years’ resolutions will actually keep them.

Most of us give up way before we even get a good start…usually before the end of January.

It’s tradition at the beginning of the New Year to set new goals for ourselves. Why? Partly because it’s tradition, but mostly because most of us really do want to improve ourselves. We want to:

  • Lose weight
  • Stop smoking
  • Be more patient
  • Be more motivated
  • Be better at our jobs
  • Eat healthier
  • Exercise more
  • Stop unwanted habits

So, if our desire is to improve ourselves…

Why are New Years’ Resolutions so hard to keep?

Often times you make goals without thinking them through, they are overwhelming or maybe they just aren’t the right goals for you. When resolutions are broken, you can begin to feel like a failure, which affects your self-esteem and you begin to lose faith in yourself.

First of all, let me just say, it can be hard to make lasting change. You want to, you know you should, but you forget or you are unaware that something internal can be holding you back and is beyond your conscious control…it is your subconscious mind, which is in total control all of your behaviors.

Hypnotherapy can Help You achieve your resolutions

Happiness in Self Improvement - Divine Mind Institute

Setting positive goals is a good thing, you shouldn’t give up trying to improve yourself. You can end the cycle of breaking resolutions.

Hypnosis combined with NLP are the perfect therapies to help you keep your goals, thereby making the positive life changes that can bring you greater happiness.

While in a hypnotic state, your conscious mind takes the back seat and your subconscious mind is allowed to come forward and is then open to receiving suggestions that will help you make the desired changes.

Your subconscious mind, with the right imagery can help you imagine the person you want to be, and then achieve it.

Get Motivated

What Does it Take to Get You Motivated?

Get Motivated - Divine Mind Institute“Life takes on meaning when you become motivated, set goals and charge after them in an unstoppable manner.” – Les Brown

Are you one of those motivated people who jump out of bed in the morning ready to tackle the world?

Or are you someone that struggles with moving forward either in individual tasks or with life in general?

Lack of motivation often looks like lack of ambition. You may

  • Not be motivated to learn
  • Not be motivated to take on more responsibility
  • Not be motivated to tackle challenges
  • Not be motivated to make positive changes in your life:
    • Weight loss
    • Stop smoking
    • Getting more exercise

Motivation is about attitude

What motivates you to make changes, overcome obstacles or become more responsible?

Not everyone is naturally motivated…it often takes a reward or sometimes even a threat to get you going.

The smoker may develop a health problem or the person who wants to lose weight may want to look good for a special vacation.

Lack of Motivation - Divine Mind InstituteBut even those “motivators” don’t keep you going.

Keeping your attitude in a motivated state can be challenging as our subconscious mind takes over and puts up barriers or roadblocks to our success and causing you to lose focus on your goal.

You Can Get Control, Get Motivated and Stay Motivated

Hypnosis is an amazing tool that can put you in charge of your life, and help you be motivated to achieve your goals, whether you want to excel in sports, at work, in school or stop biting your nails.

Hypnotherapy works with your subconscious,  the most powerful part of your mind. It helps recognize those barriers that keep you from success and then helps you visualize what success will look like through the power of suggestion. It will give you the motivating drive to make the positive changes you want and become the person you always knew you could be.

By using Hypnotherapy you will be able to become more open to the possibilities, believe in yourself, be more motivated and have a more positive outlook.

Independent or Codependent

Are You Independent or Codependent?

Independent or Codependent - Divine Mind InstituteBeginning in our early childhood, most of us sought to be independent…as our parents can attest when we said “I can do it myself!”

According to Dictionary.com, being independent means we don’t rely on others, we think and act for ourselves.

Of course we realize that in reality, being independent is having good self esteem, being capable and acting upon it. We also realize that none of us are ever totally independent, we need other people around us for many reasons.

Co-dependency

On the other hand, the codependent person is someone who has low self-esteem and is typically passive. They usually have a need to care for someone else, but neglect their own needs in the process.

The codependent person

  • Is an enabler who feels the need to rescue someone while covering up that person’s behavior.
  • Feels they never do enough for others, which leads to feelings of guilt.
  • Has possibly been mentally, physically or verbally abused by either a parent, a partner or a spouse,
  • Cannot refuse someone else’s plea for help, but has difficulty asking for it themselves.
  • Goes to great lengths to avoid confrontation and arguments to maintain peace, they don’t like to “rock the boat”.
  • Resists change
  • Codependent Worrier - Divine Mind InstituteWorries too much about what other people may think of them (low self esteem)
  • Is a “pleaser”, always wanting everyone to always be happy.
  • Feels inadequate and when they make a mistake they feel badly about themselves.

Where Co-dependence Began

We all started out with a desire to be independent as we tried to show the world we were getting big enough to do things ourselves, but somewhere along the line, usually during childhood, this unhealthy behavior began.

Because you want to correct this negative behavior, it’s important to understand why it started in the first place, something you may have no idea about. This is where hypnotherapy can help you. It is the perfect tool, that communicates with your subconscious, where all your memories are stored, which can help you uncover what in your past triggers this negative behavior.

Hypnosis can also help you begin to love yourself, which will enable you to understand and respect your own needs and begin to take care of yourself. It will help you build your self esteem, giving you the power of assertiveness, interacting with other people in a much healthier way. Although the cycle of abuse may have physically stopped, it still goes on in your head…this can stop!

In short, hypnotherapy will help you take back your life so you can enjoy it!

What is My Potential

What is My Potential, and How Can I Reach It?

What is Your Potential - Divine Mind Institute“What do you want to be when you grow up?” This is a question that is asked of every young child at one time or another.

Their response is usually quite grand…”A fireman, a movie star, a scientist, an astronaut or maybe President of the United States.”

All these things are achievable, but most kids don’t usually become what they said they wanted to because as they grow and mature, new ideas and thoughts come into their minds…it’s a natural process.

But what about you?

Are you happy with what you’ve become now that you’re grown up? Have you achieved all you thought you could or would? Have you developed the talents and skills you dreamed you would?

True, we can’t all be President of the United States, but we can feel satisfaction in who we have become and what we have achieved, with the knowledge that we’re still trying to be better.

Do we ever reach our full potential? Probably not. In fact the definition of potential, undeveloped or underused talents and abilities, let’s us know that there is always something we could work on, improve and strive for. Your potential is a journey, not a destination.

Climb to Your Highest Potential - Divine Mind Institute“I am here for a purpose and that purpose is to grow into a mountain, not to shrink to a grain of sand. Henceforth will I apply all my efforts to become the highest mountain of all and I will strain my potential until it cries for mercy.” – Og Mandino

What do you want to be?

  • Better in your career – or maybe you’d like to have a different career
  • Have more self confidence
  • A better business owner
  • A better musician
  • A better athlete
  • Better at public speaking
  • Thinner and healthier

So what’s stopping you?

  • Are you afraid to fail?
  • Have other people discouraged you and told you it can’t be done or made you feel not good enough?
    • One man wanted to be an author and public speaker. His wife didn’t think he was capable of it, which was discouraging. Because he believed in himself, today he is an international best selling author and motivational speaker.
  • Do you have self doubt?
  • Is a past experience holding you back?

I’m here to tell you that you are good enough and that with the aid of Hypnosis and NLP, you can tap into the potential that is only yours. These tools will help you access your subconscious mind and enable you recognize whatever might be holding you back and change negative behaviors.

You will be able to become more open to the possibilities, believe in yourself, be more motivated and have a more positive outlook.

Breaking Habits

Do You Need Help Breaking Unwanted Habits?

Breaking Habits - Divine Mind InstituteThere are so many unwanted habits or behaviors that people want to break, which require that they make a change in their behavior, and is often easier said than done.

You’d think that if you wanted to stop biting your fingernails, procrastinating or overeating, you could just stop. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Rather than thinking of it as breaking a bad habit, you should think in a more positive way, and think of it as creating a new good one.

About your habits…

Thankfully most of us have more positive than negative habits,but it’s the negative ones that keep us from being all we can be.

Habits are automatic things we do everyday, all day, oftentimes without even realizing we are doing them, in fact we don’t really plan on doing them.

They are a learned actions or reactions that are based on experiences or memories you have stored in your subconscious mind. You may not consciously remember them, but your subconscious remembers everything.

They may be related to stress, fear, uncertainty or or lack of confidence.

It usually take more than just sheer will power to change these negative behaviors, which doesn’t mean you are weak or unsuccessful, it simply means that whatever is triggering the behavior is deeply embedded in your subconscious.

How Can Hypnosis Help?

Hypnotherapy is a way of communicating directly with your subconscious mind and discovering the experiences that are the hidden triggers causing the behavior you’d like to stop. Without this understanding, it is difficult to change your habits.

Overcome Bad Habits - Divine Mind InstituteHypnotherapy can help program your subconscious with new thoughts and beliefs that will help you overcome your habits and help you begin new and desireable behaviors.

Can you imagine the feeling of success you’ll have when you have been able to take back control of your life, eliminate those habits you have been wanting to change for so long, and replace them with healthier, more desireable and more positive ones?

Hypnosis can help you!
