Computers, Hypnosis and Shamanism

Sorry it’s been so long since the last post. Sometimes the shaman gets redirected to the real world of work. I have been revamping our website and expect to have our new shopping cart active by the end of this coming week. The shopping cart had a major trauma and lost several soul pieces that the programmers could not retrieve. Even the shaman we called in threw up her hands and said “No way!” So, we had to start from scratch with a new program and it has been taking a very large amount of my time over the last month or so. You know programs never work the way they tell you they will. (Now that’s a perfect segway into today’s topic.)

Since we’re talking about computers… let’s talk about yours. Do you know you each own the most powerful computer available? No, not the one on your desk, the one in your head! That’s right. Your mind is the most powerful computer there is. It stores EVERYTHING you have ever heard, read, saw or experienced. It’s all stored in your personal hard drive.

Throughout your life, your subconscious mind receives and retains, neither accepting nor rejecting, all the messages you receive from your background, plus all the conflicts (little or big) that enter your life daily. When, for whatever reason, the conscious becomes overloaded, the subconscious prepares you for what it considers appropriate action. However, since the subconscious mind does not analyze and accepts all messages in the literal sense, this action may not really be correct for you now. Foot stomping tantrums don’t help much when you’re 40!

Hypnosis is a tool to help you change your life to what you want it to be. Like your computer, you want to install software that meets your needs. Hypnosis helps remove the old software that no longer functions effectively and install new programs designed to help you create the life you choose.

Habits, such as smoking and food choices, stresses, anxieties, attitudes, or perceived deficiencies take root in the subconscious, creating unstable icons on your mental computer’s desktop. To change these patterns, you have to un-install the old software and icons and replace them with new links that are attached to the new programs designed to meet for your current goals and desires.

The subconscious is also the place where all memory is stored. Traumatic events can be buried or suppressed in the directories of the subconscious. Hypnotherapy and shamanic journeys can help to uncover and bring into the light of understanding the buried information or experience which may be the cause of behaviors that you would like to change. I like to use a shamanic journey to recover the soul piece that was lost during the trauma, then use hypnosis to reprogram the behaviors or unhealthy patterns that have developed to cope with the feelings and emotions surrounding the experience.

Hypnosis is a simply a form of communication that coordinates your conscious and subconscious minds. Once you have agreement between the two parts of your mind, you can visualize and change your reality. It’s like getting new custom designed software for your computer, software that is designed to help you quickly and easily achieve your dreams, goals and full potential.

I do offer both shamanic journeys and hypnosis sessions by telephone, so you don’t have to be in Phoenix for a session. Both in-person and long-distance sessions work equally well. We just get to smile at each other face to face and share a hug if you’re in my office. So, don’t hesitate to call for a long distance session.

The next blog will announce the new website and shopping cart with some exciting new products coming your way in the Shaman’s Marketplace. And maybe a Blogger special!

Until next time.
