I am happy to share this wonderful blog by Lisa Saubolle. Lisa Saubolle is creator of The Bodymind Journey, a heart centered approach to healing and self-discovery.
One of my favorite quotes from myself (eye roll!) is, “We think we live in the world, but we live in our minds.” Another (double eye roll!)
I am happy to present this insightful article by Michele Rosenthal, founder of HealMyPTSD. Michele is a trauma/PTSD survivor who now does healing coaching for people suffering from PTSD.
"A single Mom brought her 3-year-old daughter to me because she was having severe asthma attacks in the middle of the night. She had been rushing her little girl to the emergency room in an ambulance every night until the hospital decided to put their equipment in her home so she wouldn't have to do that anymore. That was all they had to offer! Her daughter's attacks continued. When the woman brought her daughter in to see me, I immediately started playing with the little girl, saying silly things and just generally being goofy, which has always come naturally to me. After some silly talk and game-playing the little girl was up on my lap, and I shifted to a focused deeper, though still friendly and playful voice, and I showed her a scar on my thumb. . . .
Anxious thinking can become such a familiar part of our inner dialogue, that we can end up believing it’s natural. “What’s going to happen to me?”
eople who suffer with chronic pain due to injury or illness can begin to feel at the mercy of their body’s nerve responses. This may sound strange, but with hypnosis and hypnotherapy you can actually “talk” to the part of you that is creating your pain. Once you have its attention, you can then discover the purpose of the pain and get it to dramatically reduce, and often stop, sending "hurt signals" to your brain.
