My Voice Will Go With You

Past Life Curious?

Are you curious about past life regression? One of my clients asked me about my experience doing past life regressions and how the sessions go etc. I thought maybe some of you would like to know too so I am sharing my response with you. In a nutshell:

I have been doing them since my certification in 2009. I usually begin with a full induction including deepening techniques and then use a series of techniques--usually taking the person back from their current age or directly to the place where memories are stored and then ask them to go to a significant event that will shed light and healing on a particular issue that we are working on; this can take them to an event in any life.

Hypnosis for Coping with Dementia

Today the librarian asked me if I work with people with dementia. I do not yet. I said I would be willing to take it on; however, I explained that I was not sure how effective that would be since they might not remember the suggestions. Guess what? I was wrong. A study done in Liverpool, England has shown that hypnosis was the most effective of all of the treatment choices studied. There is a program for it that I am investigating and perhaps soon I will get formal training in using hypnosis with clients with dementia!


Forgiveness. What have you learned about it? If you are one who knows that the lack of forgiveness causes stress and blocks your prosperity but for some reason just cannot forgive everyone, here is a poem for you. If you wish to forgive someone, hold that person in mind and read this poem 3 times. You will soon feel a shift as tension leaves you and is replaced by ease and peace.

Charles Fillmore Knew

How does Transpersonnal Hypnotherapy work?  Charles Fillmore knew:

"The superconscious mind lifts up, or regenerates, both the subconscious and the conscious,.." "The subconscious exists for the benefit of the conscious mind, but unless regenerated it thwarts the efforts of the conscious at every step, so that 'ye may not do the things that ye would'." Charles Fillmore, Keep a True Lent

This is one way to look at Transpersonnal Hypnotherapy, which joins body, mind and spirit to effect positive change.

Labor and Delivery, You can be Fear-Free!!

Hypnotherapy by the Bay is located in Severna Park, near Annapolis and Baltimore MD and may offer the best hypnosis in the Universe.  Perhaps one day you will visit and experience what some have called a Miracle here for yourself.  But for now, here is how it all came about:

  Many years ago on August 27th, it was a clear beautiful day in MD and I experienced two amazing revelations. One was that the baby I was carrying was a girl and the most amazing and beautiful baby ever born! I had never experienced that level of joy before and was overwhelmed by it.

Did You Know Smoking Harms Your Teeth?

I went to the dentist yesterday and noticed that one of the routine questions on their intake form was "Do You Smoke?", which has a follow-up question "If yes, do you wish to quit?".  I talked to the dentist about this and it turns out that they are concerned about this because smoking harms the teeth and causes bone loss!!  I must confess, I did not know this.  So, I told her I could help her patients quit smoking and also have less fear and stress about undergoing dental treatment.

Effectiveness of Hypnosis

There are over 200 known uses for hypnosis. 

A survey of psychotherapy literature by Alfred A. Barrios, Ph.D. revealed the following recovery rates:
  • Pschoanalysis: 38% recovery after 600 sessions
  • Behaviour Therapy: 72% recovery after 22 sessions
  • Hypnotherapy: 93% recovery after 6 sessions

Can Hypnosis Improve Performance in Sports

Did you watch the Beach Volleyball match last night and happen to hear how Misty May-Treanor and Karrie Walsh-Jennings prepared for their match? Sports Hypnosis! Yes indeed. Using fairly simple suggestions that the announcer shared with the public like "You are prepared for these matches" "You have everything you need inside you to win these matches"
Now of course we know that Misty and Karrie are the best in their sport and have prepared in many other ways as well. So, why do they still incorporate hypnosis in their training, right before an Olympic match?

How Does Hypnotherapy Work?

Whatever you do in life can be enhanced by hypnosis.  If people knew the awesome power of their subconscious mind, its ability to effect positive change without any conscious effort on their part, they would truly be amazed.
Every problem has a cause, when you eliminate the cause from the computer we call the subconscious mind, the problem disappears.
Phobias, such as fear of water, flying, dentistry, and enclosed space are frequently corrected in two or three sessions.  We simply locate the cause, change the person's perception of the events and the fear usually disappears.
