Nothing is lost in the subconscious mind

Have you ever driven yourself crazy trying to find something you’ve misplaced?

Earlier this year “Mary” came to me to see if I could help her remember the name and address of a Notary she had gone to in 1995. She didn’t even know what city it was in.  

At the time her business partner tried to force her to sign some papers in front of the notary. The notary refused to validate the signature because of the coercion. Her partner took her to another notary and coerced her to sign the papers. Now she wanted to invalidate the agreement by contacting the first notary and having her testify in court that “Mary” had signed the papers under duress.
I took her into a deep state of hypnosis and regressed her to the morning of the meeting. She had been a passenger in the car her partner was driving. As she envisioned the drive I had her notice the freeway interchanges and any highway signs she might have noticed. She knew exactly which freeway they were on with each transition. As they began to exit the freeway I asked what she noticed. She said “What is La Crescenta, I see it on a sign?” I told her that it was the name of a city. It was also the name of the street onto which they were exiting. She remembered getting off the freeway, turning left, going two blocks, turning right, and seeing a brown two story building. She never noticed the street sign but knew exactly what the building looked like and where it was positioned relative to parking lots and landscaping. She remembered going up to the second floor and walking into the office. She knew exactly where to go to find it and was able to describe the woman in detail.
She found the Notary she was looking for. I hope she wins her case.
You might be able to find that lost book or piece of jewelry you know you had just a few days ago. Before going to bed at night ask your subconscious mind to reveal a clue to you in your dreams or fist thing when you wake up in the morning. My friend used to say “It is sitting there laughing at you”. It always has been and the inspiration of realizing  the right place to look has always come.
What is the most important thing you have ever lost? And how did you find it again?

Stopping smoking doesn’t have to be a pain in the butt

I’ve seen an article circulating on Twitter warning people about the horrible withdrawal symptoms they will get when they quit smoking. Aside from giving negative hypnotic suggestions which may create a self-fulfilling prophecy, in my experience this is JUST NOT TRUE.  I’ve helped 2 pack-a-day smokers quit and they had no physical withdrawal symptoms the next day or the next week.  They almost all report they slept better the night after our hypnosis session than they have in years. 


If nicotine were truly addictive, people would be craving a fix every four hours or so and waking up in the middle of the night to smoke.  The true cause of the “addiction” is the habitual daily use of tobacco to distract from uncomfortable feelings or situations.  This goes on frequently throughout the day so it is viewed as an “addiction more difficult to break than heroine.”


 A well trained, competent hypnotist can help you find the causes of the smoking habit, not just treat the behavior.  By getting to the source of the problem you can become a calm, comfortable non-smoker who feels more peaceful in all areas of your life.  


What’s your addiction? Food? Work? Shopping? Not speaking up for yourself? The answers to your freedom lie in your subconsious mind.
