Not Feeling Good Enough ?

thinker

As I was walking home the other night, I found myself walking along Bloor St W, past all the ritzy stores. I noticed all the adverts, the beautifully clad dummies, the expensive watches and bags, I came to a realization. Now my realization might not be your Truth, it might not resonate with you, and that’s ok. If this does resonate with you, it might contribute significantly to your own healing journey, as it did mine.

We live in a post-colonial capitalistic society. The cogs of society run for the generation and spending of money; in its’ most basic function, we earn money in order that we can exchange it for things we need to live. In this capitalistic society corporations that sell us goods believe growth in their business is a huge measure of success, better shares, happier shareholders. To make more money, they have to sell more product or reduce costs, or both.

My theory is that in order to motivate us to want to buy more stuff, to get us to want to line up excitedly for the latest dodad when the current dodad is doing a fine job, they needs us to feel as though we or what we have are somehow less ! 

Around us the advertising, the latest products,  nudge us into feeling that we are not good enough the way we are. So many of us in Europe and North America, areas where capitalism has had a stronghold for several generations, feel that we aren’t as good as that other person, too fat, too old, too dark, etc. The endless subliminal messages that surround us reach deep inside, and we who have been programmed since we were young, don’t even notice the bombardment.

Did you know that in Asia, they don’t have levels of systemic self-hatred anywhere near cultures like this one we are drenched in ?

The good news is you can unplug from this. Know that this is a game and you don’t have to take part. Know that you are perfectly fine as you are, in fact you are the best version of you that there is. From time to time, check in with yourself and ask yourself, ‘how do I feel right now?’, ‘how is this effecting me?’, ‘what’s the message for me here?’ Remember the things that have value for you, perhaps family, friends, music, dance, nature and spend more time in those environments. By doing more of what makes your soul sing, you are living authentically, and you are helping to heal our society simply be being you.

You are good enough. In fact, you are Divine 😉

 

 

 

Benefits of a Past Life Regression Session

In a Past Life Regression session, we journey backwards in time/space, for you to experience a previous lifetime. The aim of your journey is individual to you; some folks want to get to the root cause of a repeating theme in their life, others to investigate a strange fear or phobia, some to resolve health issues or blocks in this life. There are infinite reasons for investigating the past, and each journey brings healing and empowerment in some manner.

Below are a few examples of how a Past Life Regression session can help you in this  lifetime:

  • You may receive a message of inspiration or guidance from your past life self, that can help you in this lifetime
  • You integrate the lessons of that past life, and become more self-empowered
  • Our past lives often have a theme, such as being a healer, teacher, a warrior – this embodied knowledge can help you to explore your chosen life direction today, and can steer you towards your life purpose
  • We journey with around another dozen souls, and you can learn who you have lived with before, gaining more of an understanding of your relationship
  • With the emotional and physical knowing of your previous lifetime(s) you can let go your fear of death
  • With the knowledge you’ve lived before, you can reduce your need to achieve and allow yourself to flow in the rhythm of the universe

Top 5 Hypnosis Myths

Hypnotherapy has been around for a long time; it was used in the Healing Temples of Egypt, and has now become accepted as an effective mainstream method of making change in peoples lives. Unfortunately there are a few myths that are still in many peoples minds about what hypnosis is.

1. The Puppet Myth

You are more aware of your surroundings when in the hypnotic state. When in hypnosis you are accessing your sub conscious mind, it is an active problem solver and is able to access all of your memories.

  • You only take yourself into trance if you feel safe
  • You can bring yourself back at any time
  • You will not give away any secrets
  • You are in control

2. The Memory Myth

Stage hypnotists are specially trained to create the illusion that they have control, and create the temporary illusion of forgetfulness in those participants that are open to it. I practice a therapeutic and holistic hypnosis where you are in control.

  • Stage hypnosis entertains others, similar to a magician
  • Therapeutic hypnosis empowers you
  • You will always know where you are
  • You will recall everything you choose to

3. The Ignorance Myth

Many people feel they won’t know when they are in a trance state, but in fact you have many signals that let you know

  • Body feels heavy & sleepy
  • Mind alert & ready to work
  • Very aware of your surroundings
  • Mild tingling in your extremities
  • Lightly fluttering eye lids
  • Swallowing more often

4. The Control Freak Myth

Most people think they aren’t hypnotizable, especially self-confessed ‘Control Freaks’.  In fact, 95% of people are hypnotizable, and when you decide to take control of your actions, you make it a very powerful tool for change ! Take the Quiz

I invite you to research hypnosis and determine for yourself how safe and natural the process is; visit our links for a starting point. You are always in control and your subconscious mind will not take you anywhere you are not ready to go.

5. The Master Controller Myth

I do not put you into hypnosis, you take yourself into hypnosis ! In fact, no-one can use hypnosis against another’s will. If I was to make a suggestion that you didn’t completely agree with, it would effectively just “bounce off” your mind and you wouldn’t do it !
Really, all hypnosis is self-hypnosis.
