So here you are, on a Hypnotist’s webpage, probably because something is just not right in your life. Isn’t it funny the difference a day can make? Yesterday, as the Beatle’s song says, all your troubles seemed so far away. What is the difference between now and then? Why does it seem so important to change in regard to some hurt, habit or hang-up today, when yesterday it was fine to freely enjoy it?
Am I waking up somehow?
Most self-help substance recovery programs, abide by a belief that when a person is lost in a habit or life-style that is harming them, that “a part” of that person is asleep. The general concepts of recovery they share, clearly emphasize this belief by saying (in various but similar ways) that by the end of the “steps to recovery” the person will have had a spiritual awakening. This awakening is the result of many spiritual experiences a person is exposed to by attendance and participation in the personal work of self-discovery and group meetings.
What starts the process of change?
What gets a person in the door of a recovery program, or in your situation, why are you looking for help to solve a problem which didn’t cause you concern last week? The author C. S. Lewis, who you may know as the creator of the “Narnia Chronicles” once said;
Probably some of you are recoiling over the words “evil” and “bad person” etc. The context is important as this book is about a person’s understanding that they need help in life and his premise, which is right on target is to receive the help planned for us by a “loving God”. The important idea for our purposes is that you are “awakening” and have decided you have an everyday concern you need help with.
Now that I’m awake how do I get help with the change I’m seeking?
Well if you were to attend one of the programs of recovery that I am speaking of you would find in various ways that they prescribe in the belief that “without help it is too much for us. But there is one who has all power-that one is God, may you find Him now!” In their “Second Tradition” AA further describe this God as a “loving God”. In seeking help with your “everyday” issue, the same “loving God” can assist you.

We need “power” to change
Truly it is a lack of “power” that we face. A ‘loving God” provides that “power” without any effort on your part except to believe in what He has done for you. Wouldn’t it be good to have help with even life’s small problems? Maybe beliefs from your past are standing in the way of accepting that kind of help. As your Hypnotist, I might suggest, for your own benefit that you change your mind about that.

Now that you have decided you don’t want to keep doing the behavior that is causing you trouble you are experiencing what some would call a ” moment of sanity”. Unfortunately if you don’t act now that moment will pass and you will probably go back to what you were doing, getting the same results over and over. Albert Einstein, (speaking of results that don’t benefit a person, I assume), defined Insanity as;
“doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”
So you decide, is today the day for you to do something different? Don’t let this window of opportunity pass to change your life. Let us help. If you don’t get help with us, get help with someone. Maybe you don’t have a plan on how to make the change you are seeking, but we do.
