Using Hypnosis to Gain More Control Over Your Illness

KIRSTEN RITCHIE, 44, is no stranger to surgery — nearly 20 years ago, doctors removed four tumors from her brain. She remembers the operation and its aftermath as “horrific . . .”

A Great Shining

September 12

As the hand held before the eye conceals the greatest mountain, so the little earthly life hides from the glance the enormous lights and mysteries of which the world is full, and he who can draw it away from before his eyes, as one draws away a hand, beholds a great shining of the inner worlds.

– Rabbi Nachmann of Bratzlav

 

The First Step ….

The first step towards making change is seeking out someone who has the ability to assist you. If you’re not sure about what hypnosis is, how meditation works or whether or not you need someone to coach you through this passage, please call and together we can figure it out: 212.365.4775 or email sarawendt@gmail.com.

What to expect . . .

During our consultation, we will discuss how hypnosis can help you identify your challenge and work toward your goal.  This session is approximately 20 minutes where we can establish rapport and gather information.

When you are ready, we begin our hypnosis training and practice during the second session which is 60 minutes. Most clients are fully conscious while in hypnosis, but are in a state of selective awareness, where the subconscious mind is more accessible and able to be influenced positively and in accord with the client’s proposed goals.

Many clients are able to achieve their goals in 2 to 6 sessions.  Together we can determine what is the best course of action for your particular goals, financial situation and schedule.

What if I can’t be hypnotized?

Hypnosis is a natural state, and there are many levels of hypnosis. It’s not like falling off a cliff—more like a gentle slope, and even in the lightest level of hypnosis it has been shown that suggestions take effect. Most people have been in light hypnosis on their own; for example, when you are driving and suddenly realize you have been daydreaming for the past twenty miles, but somehow managed to negotiate the road successfully. In my experience, anyone who wants to be hypnotized can be hypnotized, and the more you do it—either with a hypnotherapist or by using a self-hypnosis CD—the easier it gets, and the deeper you are able to go.
