It’s Spring. Huh? Oh yeah, that’s when it’s cold and windy one day; then cold windy snowy the next; then sunshiny the day after that; then some rainy clouds; then… over and over.
I’m looking forward to the latter days of Spring when the sunshiny days and rainy days are more frequent than snowy days, although I am deeply grateful for the moisture. We really need moisture up here in the Rocky Mountains.
What does Springtime mean to you? Obviously we’re glad to be mostly done with cold weather for awhile. What else does it mean?
For me, this Spring shows the blossoming of my hypnotherapy practice.
It’s been an up and down ride these past several months while I was making the transition to online and revamping. [Read on for my fun-loving alter ego’s take on all this busy-ness. Serafina was not happy. ]
I’ve been diligently following the advice of my business coach, Patti Keating. (Yep, I hire coaches for myself, too!) And my income is definitely rising!
Patti advised me to
- Create a premium hypnotherapy program, so I did.
- Post pics of myself in social media. This one was hard. If you’ve ever been stalked or in an abusive relationship, you understand how hard this can be.
- Talk about myself and my own life on social media. Whew…
And she encouraged me to tell you, my kindred spirit, about my celebrations!
- First let me tell you that physical therapy is paying off and I can do a 60 second plank now. Yay!
- I pushed past my fear and allowed myself to be seen and heard on social media.
- And… As of this moment, two wonderful kindred spirits have signed up for my brand new premium 6-month Visionary Hypnotherapy Program. I’m so excited!
The main reason this is such a magical celebration for me is because I realized that my alter ego, the dancing, fun-loving Serafina Fortuna, was not on board with Plan A.
In fact, she didn’t want to work at all! Because these past 2 years have been rough and she needed a break.
- My 9-year love relationship ended in the Spring of 2020. He’s a good man; we just weren’t a good fit anymore.
- I moved back into my own place. I love my condo, but moving is stressful.
- Then my mom was diagnosed terminal, so I packed up and headed out of state to caregive for my mom during hospice.
When I got back home, exhausted and grieving, I wasn’t in a good space emotionally, so I decided to delay going back to work in my hypnotherapy practice. A couple of weeks later…
My friends asked if I could caregive for their mom who had a right-side stroke. For a few weeks.
I thought this was good because it helped keep my mind off the other two devastating things…. Wrong.
A few weeks turned into 14 months.
By the time I got back to my own life in the mountains four months ago, I was in not-too-good shape. I was exhausted. My brain was overloaded. My health had been skidding downward for months.
My creative Muse was absent. I couldn’t make a piece of art, not even a greeting card. Before all this started, I spent hours in my studio. Hours! Sigh…
Back to my own life… And then I started crying… and crying.
You see, when you put off grieving, it doesn’t go away. Grief waits very patiently for the spiral to come back around. And then it hits you with a whammy!
Sad scenes in movies make me cry. Emotional moments in books make me cry. Cute little kitties and babies make me cry.
I wasn’t living in alignment. My Navigator was offline and not providing necessary guidance and advice.
But I’ve been getting it back together. My alter ego Serafina is in the navigator’s seat, studying the maps of my life, and making sure I take time off for fun.
Who is in your Navigator’s seat?
You might wonder why women want a hypnotherapy program. It’s because hypnosis allows you to go deep inside, to find your own answers, the ones you can’t see with your active mind, the one that’s been running in the same exhausting rut for decades.
If I weren’t a hypnotherapist with this skillset, I might not have known how to access my Inner Serafina to find out what’s been holding me back in this situation.
Back in the summer of 2021, when I was in the throes of all this muck and not living in alignment, not living my truth, I was miserable and finally had had enough. I decided to get back to my hypnotherapy practice in the Autumn 2021.
I asked my spirit guides for help in planning what my updated and upgraded business would be like, because things have shifted a lot since 2020, when the Pandemic changed so much of our lives. I asked for ideas on a topic or subject that would be helpful for you and our kindred spirits.
I like using oracle cards for asking questions. Sometimes the answer is vague. But most of the time it’s right on the dot and enlightening.
I pulled out my Energy Oracle cards (by Sandra Ann Taylor) and drew 22,
“Understanding the cycle one is in and being willing to utilize its energy beneficially.”
Wow, what an ah-ha moment! This makes sense to me because I work with women who have been around the block a few times and have had enough of life the way it is. You know what I mean.
You know you want to make a change of some kind. You might not know what to do next. You just know you’ve had enough and you are ready to move on, to explore the deeps.
The obstacle then is that your brain doesn’t know how to move forward. That’s where hypnosis succeeds.
Rolling in the Deep
Hypnotherapy allows you to safely brush away the layers upon layers of dustiness life laid on your spirit. It allows you to dive deep and pull out the stuff you’d like to get rid of so you can make room for the best stuff, for new experiences.
Hypnotherapy allows you the opportunity to build
- a delightful love life
- strong relationships
- better health habits
- satisfying work.
Hypnosis helps you uncover your blind spots, the ones that keep you making the same mistakes over and over. They are your obstacles. They are proof of being misaligned. By definition, you don’t know what they are. Your friends and family do, though.
You haven’t succeeded because your soul knows when you are in misalignment. And your soul will take heavy action to move you in the right direction. That’s what all the misery is about.
With Visionary Hypnosis, you’ll learn how to utilize your soul’s magical energy in a way that works with you — instead of feeling like you’re swimming upstream in whitewater rapids.
You have inspiration, hope, and dreams. You have potential! Great possibilities for success! Let’s fire ‘em up!
Take the first 3 steps to kickstarting your own high potential
- Ponder your areas of Life Balance (worksheet link below)
- What can you change? How can you make the good parts better? How can you make the imbalanced parts better?
- Listen to my Rest + Relaxation Guided Meditation daily before sleeping (link below)
These steps are all part of my Visionary Hypnotherapy program. It’s a good start for you, too.
