OK, so you learned how to do self-hypnosis (Self-Hypnosis is Easy and Fun!), you know about creating positive suggestions for yourself, but, do you know how to get the most out of self-hypnosis and really get to the bottom of what you want?
In my practice at Intuitive Hypnosis in Portland, Oregon, I use an approach with my clients based on a Neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) outcome frame. It is an excellent tool that I use with almost every client to help us narrow down exactly what they want as a result of their hypnosis treatment.
The NLP outcome frame has a lot of questions, all of which I use with clients in my office. I have narrowed down the questions to the most important, in my opinion, to include when combining with self-hypnosis. By learning to use this NLP outcome frame to create your outcome statement, you can learn to expertly define exactly what you want as you practice self-hypnosis. » Read the rest of this entry «

You may be interested to know that we all experience self-hypnosis several times each day. Wouldn’t it be nice to be aware of the ways in which you are hypnotizing yourself, so that you can deliberately choose which habits and behaviors are running the show? Learning how to use self-hypnosis deliberately can do just that!
When we talk about hypnosis, we’re talking about the co-mingling of the conscious mind and the sub-conscious mind, as if there are two minds. Well of course there is only one mind, and so it’s more accurate to speak of conscious processes and sub-conscious processes. A conscious process is something you do, or think about, consciously. Conversely, a sub-conscious process is something you do automatically, kind of like being on autopilot. Hypnosis is a process of bringing the two together so that you’re in charge of those automatic behaviors. » Read the rest of this entry «

We have all heard the old adage, “Getting motivated is easy, staying motivated is the hard part!” This is true whether we are talking about motivation to eat right, exercise, get up early, quit smoking, think positive, and so on.
Why is it that we cannot seem to stay motivated to do the things we want to do? We know that what we want for ourselves is better for us than what we are currently doing, or not doing. We know that we will be happier in the having of, or the doing of, what we want. So what gives? How can we successfully maintain that initial excitement and motivation we feel when we first get excited about making personal change? » Read the rest of this entry «

The largest percentage of clients coming to visit me at Intuitive Hypnosis in Portland, Oregon for sports related requests, tend to be those wishing to improve their golf game. However, hypnosis can be equally useful with all kinds of individual and competitive sports. I have worked with clients who successfully improved their performance levels in competitive ice skating, triathlon, varsity softball, horseback riding, K-9 competition, and more. The most successful of clients and athletes also tend to be those who have learned to “see” themselves as successful. They have learned to master the psychology of their individual and/or team sport. » Read the rest of this entry «
