Always a place for hypnosis in coaching and business

flower swirls

For the past 15 years or so I have dabbled with Hypnosis; not the theatrical kind of turning people into cavorting chickens, but the deep relaxation style.

I first experimented with self hypnosis for pain relief. A long induction and a descent into a meditative state with the suggestions taking the place of destructive medications.  

Over time I was able to work with others who would benefit from my boring story with descent to relaxation that made up my induction, then to be followed by post hypnotic suggestions to suit the occasion.

More recently I have worked with short inductions (seven or eight words) with surprising results. Imagine if I was to shake your hand and without releasing your hand to give you my elevator pitch. My wife as a massage therapist carries this a little further by imparting a hand massage before releasing the would-be client"s hand.

I practise my skills with the local Meetup Group, the Salt Lake Hypnosis Society.  Tonight we are looking at Power Words.

There are hundreds of Meetup Groups in the Sandy UT area alone. www.meetup.com

I belong to eight different Groups meeting over a month. Strangely, people tend to ask "What do you do?"  I help people find the home of their dreams.

And, do you know?  There are no other Real Estate Agents there.

"Watch my hand, and you will be very relaxed..."

Dear Larry -

I use the progressive focus technique for calming down - better than beer! 
I love what you said -
" "What do you do?"  I help people find the home of their dreams."

Good to see Gary Coles commenting again - that way we know he is safe on his grand adventure.

Have a happy day -
Lynn

In my past life when I would go on a lot of conventions, there was one gentleman in our crowd who would give many of us short neck massages while we were listening to a boring speech at a convention center or sitting on a bus going to and fro. He was a popular gentleman and, we, the recipients of the massages, would feel instantly better. And I would be delighted by one of your wife's hand massages.

Larry that sounds so interesting! I could use some hypnosis to keep the tip of my tongue from burning from the Jalapeno pepper I just tasted!

Post about this subject again... I liked it!

Hi Larry.  The power of the mind is still a great mystery, but we can get fascinating glimpses of its power over the body.  I bet you have a lot of fun at those Meet-Up groups!

Lynn - And with less side effects than beer. Happiness is my deliberate daily choice. It is a great influencer.

Hella - neck and foot rubs during Square Dance conventions accounted for most of my spare time. I learned lots about word-of-mouth advertising and marketing whilst being thus engaged.

Sussie -  I get caught with Wasabi for hots. I have used suggestions for calming rebellious stomachs. I will put notes together for future posts. Thanks.

Alice - The groups provide me with motivation. Like minded people enthuse me, and start conversations. Dressing up and showing up are great steps into bigger circles.

Dianne - there is a tendency in all of us to get comfortable and to use less of our abilities. Along with power words, we observed "Power" as a state that can be self induced. One hell of a motivation tool. The topics of the Meetup Groups are varied. My favorite for relaxing is Laugh Yoga.

Larry, hypnosis does work.  I have done it a couple of times in the past.  What I do now is to take slow deep breaths and will my self to relax and this works good for me these days.

Barbara - sounds a good way to achieve calm. Adapting to what works for you  achieves benefits.

Judi - good for pain control, and in association with other therapies. My major use was as alternative to chemical pain killers which were doing me not much good long term.

The study and practice of Hypnosis has always held my interest and in the course of my life I have taken a number of courses in the field. Have you read the book, SEARCH FOR A SOUL (1972) - Taylor Caldwell and Jess Stern? The entire book is about Taylor Caldwell - bestselling novelist - under hypnosis and recorded by author Jess Stern. (No longer in print, I believe...purchase a 2nd hand copy online).

Jane - sounds intriguing. I have added it to my to-dos. New the book is around $95, and there is also an 8x90min tape set. Seems quite a book. I have had little experience in parapsychology but like most subjects I could develop a curiosity. Thanks for the lead.

Yep, I agree - stimulating the curiosity. The field of parapsychology is quite stimulating, and should fit in nicely with your seismic earthquake research, photography, hypnosis, and gold-mining... ~ ~ O.K., not sure about the gold-mining ~~ Haha. Larry, Taylor Caldwell wrote some excellent books - among them: DEAR AND GLORIOUS PHYSICIAN (about St. Luke) andTESTIMONY of TWO MEN.... She wrote from a higher spiritual level.
