Years ago, I recall noticing how monotonous my voice was during a narration for a corporate video project. I wasn’t impressed with myself, so I re-recorded it.
Later, an even more poignant memory surfaced: speaking in front of 45 people and almost fainting in front of them. THAT was frightening. Feeling the blood rushing from my brain while struggling for the next sentence was no picnic. I would guess some of you may know this feeling…
Have you ever admired the voice of someone who projected a great warmth, sense of integrity or authority?
Learn how to modulate your voice
You may not be remotely interested in speaking before an audience (most of us aren’t!) But look at it this way: you’re speaking to an audience constantly – your spouse/partner, your kids, boss, co-workers, and friends. Furthermore, you may have a creative project or even a larger vision for the future you’d like to articulate to people. This requires engaging them by learning how to modulate your voice, and creating a rhythm or cadence to each sentence, thus naturally creating curiosity to hear more. Hypnosis for public speaking can help.
Craft your message
If you’re in business, either as a solopreneur, team player or representing a company, you most likely want to craft your message as powerfully and concisely as possible. By slowly whittling away every extraneous detail and focusing only on the essentials, you’ll find yourself speaking from your core confidence. It’s this deeper level of self-confidence that engages your sense of authority towards your kids because you’re speaking from that place of which you know is absolutely true.
Relax your body
I’ve worked with clients using hypnosis for public speaking along with other techniques to enable them to relax their body, focusing on the throat and facial muscles, while projecting authenticity. Together we focus on deep breathing, engaging with their audience, and being totally real, at the moment.
Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT)
Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT) has also created stellar results in enabling clients to project great self-confidence and professional knowledge of their field. In fact, one of my clients received a promotion immediately after her presentation!
Have you had an amazing experience speaking to an individual or an audience you’d like to share? If so, please respond and let me know!
When you think of your memory, what do you associate with it? Is your memory razor sharp, or do you occasionally forget where you left your favorite novel? The subject of memory is a very long one, and fairly complex, from a neuroscientific standpoint.
We know memories can vanish due to dementia, or even a traumatic car accident. The question I’d like to pose to you today is: “What if forgetting something that caused great pain – such as a romantic relationship, or long-term abuse – could make you happier, would you do it?”
On several occasions, I have worked with clients to create “hypnotic amnesia” over ending a troublesome relationship. It worked like a charm. When someone is truly willing, they can put the past far behind them.
There are times, however, when a person is under such intense psychological pressure, that a totally new approach is needed before they experience relief.
A few months ago, a man came to see me. He had been very depressed his entire life, having been raised as a child of a schizophrenic mother and workaholic father. Because of this, his life was far from normal. He could not invite friends into his home, and no one came to cheer him on at football games. Eventually, his mother passed away.
Simply put, he wanted to disassociate himself from his past and move forward.
Prior to our session, I spoke with him about the effectiveness of Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT), and how it swiftly “short-circuits” the anxiety response he used to have every time he looked back on his childhood. There was now an opportunity to create, using his own words, a completely different approach towards his life from this moment forward. Effectively, new neural pathways were being created in his brain, generating new thoughts of a life full of exploration and deep relationships.
One week later, he called to tell me he felt completely different. Once, he tried to revert to memories from his former life, but they never arose. He was feeling so optimistic about his future, that he was even planning on applying for a college scholarship. An immense weight had been lifted from his shoulders.
Have you ever wondered how you might want to break an ingrained habit, a belief, or even change directions in your life? If so, consider how powerful BWRT is as a vehicle for transforming your life.
Our Emotions Run Deep,
Especially in Personal Relationships
Even before emerging into this world, we become deeply connected to someone beyond ourselves. We know how easily babies respond to their mother’s voice, her mood swings, and her habits, such as the type of music she listens to. Our brains are literally hard-wired to make a connection with thousands of people, ideas and places in our world. Consider the full spectrum of human emotions we access throughout our lives: from ecstasy, astonishment and curiosity to boredom, defiance, jealousy and depression.
We’ve All Been There:
Sometimes Emotional Detachment Causes A lot of Pain
While many couples seek a relationship with someone who shares their core value set, others will look for someone with values and beliefs that differ from their own. An intelligent, serious college student might prefer dating a man seeking a masters in physics, while a pilot may find an artist’s lifestyle enticing. When engaged in these relationships, our subconscious mind is constantly evaluating whether our partner’s values match ours, or whether they’re radically different from ours.
Inevitably, at some point all relationships reach a point where communication temporarily breaks down. During these difficult moments, I believe our Achilles Heel lies in our inability toclearly see ourselves the way others see us. This affects our capacity to perceive both our limiting patterns and strengths, as well as to effectively resolve conflicts. Also, over time some people change dramatically, causing a permanent breakup of the relationship. Suddenly, the ex-partner is faced with the painful dilemma of learning how to make a radical adjustment to their life without their significant other.
How Can I Learn to Feel Emotional Detachment from My Ex Partner?
Naturally, the fear and angst a person feels after a breakup can sometimes be paralyzing. The build-up of anxiety in the limbic system of your brain from Emotional Detachment can cause obsessive thinking, insomnia and even depression. Hypnotherapy provides immediate relief by deeply relaxing your subconscious mind, restoring you to a greater sense of balance, and a calmer perspective.
Neuroscience has shown us that we are infinitely more creative than we realize. Your subconscious imagination enhances your ability to emotionally detach from a former partnership. Deep hypnotic states have enabled clients to accelerate their ability to radically accept their new circumstances, while perceiving new opportunities for growth. After one session, one client informed me that after seeing her former partner in a café, she observed “there’s the man I used to date.”
Brain Working Recursive Therapy (BWRT) has also proven to be highly effective for redirecting the fear and panic response accompanying the end of a romance. The protocols for BWRT are different than hypnosis, and focus on blocking the panic response produced by the reptilian brain. It is an astounding process that is already gaining recognition amongst therapists and psychotherapists to help with Emotional Detachment.
Depending on the circumstances surrounding your relationship, treatment for Emotional Detachment normally takes anywhere from three to six sessions.
