A SENSE OF URGENCY

What is the reason for a feeling of urgency that many of us are feeling at this time? What is it that suddenly is compelling us to be more and do more than we have in the past?

It would be easy to write off the uncomfortable feelings as nothing more than the result of Christmas, the holiday shopping, a kind of nervous rush. But those circumstances, however real they appear, are seemingly unrelated to the emotion expressed by many of my clients. That urge that pushes them comes from a more important and consistently pervasive source.

Whatever its origin the current intense energy calls us to search for our deepest most important talents, the abilities that are birthed in us. It seems to force us to use all of ourselves, to take positive action. Could it be that mother earth herself demands us to be all that we were intended to be? Or is it our God self or high self that continually tries to awaken us?

There is no doubt that each of us arrived on earth with a soul mission and all the talent we need to bring it into our life experience. Perhaps now, certainly more than any time in the past, we are needed on earth to express our talents, fine tune them and use them with love and gratitude.

It is obvious that this period is one of immense changes. I feel we are called on to use ourselves in a way that will bring the majority of earth’s people toward an accepting, loving, peaceful joy. Are we willing? Can we play the part as originally intended? Let us care for each other and for our earth mother in a way that will be good for all.

If I can help you to explore your soul’s purpose, I am ready to assist in any way you wish. I have many tools that can be of benefit to you in living your path by accessing the plan of your soul.

Perhaps a clearing of your chakras (your personal energy centers) with sound, color and gem stones would give you greater control. I might offer hypnosis by contacting your subconscious mind to bolster your belief in yourself and your chosen way. In addition I could clear away any negativity and reenergize your living space, home or office, if it is failing to support your growth.

Let me help remove any seeming blocks to your desired life experience. Begin living fully today. Call or e-mail today for your private appointment. Rev. Lois Cheney (928)300-2030 or RevLois@gmail.com

ONLY A ROCK

Today my dear friend Jeanne sent me a little present in the mail for no reason at all except she likes to make me feel good with little surprises. The gift was a seemingly ordinary necklace of blue and brown beads. The center piece was a blue stone with flecks of gold. I simply had to wear it with everything. I just couldn’t set it aside. It made no difference whether it matched or it didn’t match what I was wearing. It was a wonder that I didn’t wear it to bed with pajamas!

Finally I thought to look into the “why”, the reason or reasons it had such a powerful attraction for me. Ordinarily everything I buy or receive the very first thing I would do is work with the energies to make sure it was a good “fit”. This time I didn’t. Well wouldn’t you know! I should have guessed it was something special. That stone, which was fairly new in earth terms, still brought back a great powerful memory from my days in Atlantis. Deep midnight blue with flecks of gold. How lovely. Thank you Jeanne. You did more for me than you could have imagined.

“CURSE” OF THE BAD HAIRCUT

“CURSE” OF THE BAD HAIRCUT

How could a bad haircut put a curse on your life? Well of course it couldn’t but it could put a dent in your enjoyment of one day or two perhaps the entire week just by the way you focus on it… Just by the way you refuse to acknowledge that it is a very temporary setback and your hair will grow out again… Just by refusing to believe and realize that ultimately you will have a second chance at successful grooming!

Isn’t it odd the way our self-talk can go? “I just know my husband (or wife) won’t like this mess of a haircut. This is just a disaster!  Now how can I go to a job interview looking like this?” We do tend to obsess over things that are so fleeting and basically no big deal.

Why did I start by using a haircut as the subject of my musings? Simply because with a rather insignificant event sometimes it is easier to understand and admit what many times we do to sabotage our own joy. Just as easily I could have used the example of his fancy formal shirt ruined by a wine spill or the elegant dress that shrank to doll-size in the wash. Even if all three things had happened they would not be enough to actually ruin a life!

It is important to realize that any discomforting event will eventually be past history. The quicker we are willing to maintain a positive focus while accepting things as they are right now, the sooner things will change for the better. Holding on for dear life to misery, continually feeding it more energy, just creates more misery and emotional upheaval.

To look at it in a different way, what you resist persists. There is no getting around the fact that the more we push against the existing circumstances, refusing to accept them, the longer they seem to stay with us. The more we hold tight to our unhappy feelings, the more miserable we become.

All of this does not suggest that you should not take corrective action when it is called for but it should be done with a feeling of allowing things to work out in their appropriate timing. Force brings about opposing force. The more we demand situations to change this instant the harder, denser and more unmovable they become.

On any issues larger than a haircut for instance it is perfectly normal to be upset over the loss of a friendship or the passing of a pet. In such circumstances we simply need to limit the amount of time we allocate to grieving and begin to put energy into more progressive pursuits. Such heartfelt losses need not be allowed to ruin endless weeks and months. There will always be other people who will be grateful for your friendship. There will always be loving pets needing you.

I actually have seen people go into mild depression over the fact that their favorite automobile was no longer repairable, simply could not function and had to be “retired”. Life is too precious to waste any of it in ongoing regret or self-recrimination of any kind. I “could have” or “should have” never solves anything.

Each one of us is here on earth to use our wonderful God given gifts and talents while learning our life lessons. If we are to fulfill our destiny we need to pursue our life paths with determined optimism and joy. It is difficult to be productive if we are continually looking over our shoulders at past unhappiness or reviewing current difficulties over and over again.

Think of it this way: one plan didn’t work, but there are other options; the home you wanted was already sold, but there will be a better one; your friend moved away, but you can ease your next door neighbor’s loneliness with a few moments of your company while at the same time making your own feelings lighter in the process.

Keep looking on the bright side and your personal light will shine brighter not only for your benefit but for others. There is never a good reason to concentrate on what you do not want. Look instead to what you can do right now this moment to access your inner joy.

When you can find a reason to be thankful, to be grateful for anything at all, it is much easier to get into your joy. And when you are joyful you will find positive creative ideas will come so easily. Being in joyful gratitude gives you added energy to carry out those tasks that are calling for your special abilities. I believe that each one of you my readers is capable of greatness!

If you need a little help in keeping your thinking on a positive track while stopping all the worrisome “detours”, give me a call. Hypnosis is a quick and effective way to restructure your habitual thinking. With some hypnotherapy you will find yourself believing in “possibilities” rather than “problems”. Inculcating or installing a positive attitude with the help of your subconscious mind allows you to access clearer thinking and simpler solutions to life’s stumbling blocks.

ARE YOU EXCITED?

Are you excited? You should be! Why? Because every day is a new adventure. Every day has the potential of great accomplishments for your life. Each morning you get to choose how to feel, to put love into your life or not, what positive actions to take or just to “wander” and let the winds of chance carry you as they will.

I recently encountered what most folks would call a big stumbling block. My partner of some years passed away Easter Sunday. Am I sad? Is there a tinge of self-pity in me? Both of those from time to time. But am I giving up on life? Absolutely not! Yes it is true, I am no longer a youngster, none the less I know I have lots to learn and lots to give.

That life loss event alone caused me to look at many varied decisions for my personal future. And yes, it sometimes seems over whelming. To help myself through this time I use a great number of stimulating affirmations. Often I say those positive life affirming words and thoughts into my own eyes in the mirror.

I affirm and affirm until my whole body, mind and emotions resonate!

I am excited about my future. All possibilities are open to me. There are unlimited options. I dream big! My life fills with joy, love, friends and new relationships. Every wish I hold for myself carries the possibility of rich fulfillment. My personal future brings wonderful surprises.

If you have encountered some emotional or mental “do not proceed” types of barricades or blocks in your life, I strongly recommend you consider creating your own positive life affirmations. You know what you wish to experience in place of your current situation. Put those desires into your own words as if they were true right now!

If the problem or problems seem just too overwhelming, let me help you with my services as a certified clinical hypnotist. Hypnotherapy is an effective and safe shortcut to immediate positive results. Why? Because when ideas, your concepts are planted in your subconscious mind through hypnosis, the results are magnified many times over. The subconscious mind spends 24 hours each and every day to bring you exactly what you ask for.

HELLO ARKANSAS!

HELLO ARKANSAS!
The last time I lived in Arkansas was 7 or 8 years ago. I had a lovely home in Bella Vista Arkansas. Now I have an equally beautiful home in Rogers Arkansas. I am thrilled to be living in an area that feels like home to me.

Also it is important to me to be near the Ozark Research Institute in Fayetteville for which I am a member and presenter. No more long plane rides just to arrive at the center!

After working at my Rogers home on the “special healing room” I am completely ready to welcome new clients. I took some extra time with furnishing and decorating just to be sure that anyone who comes for a consultation would feel as much happy warming energy as I could create.

Every large geographic move seems to require a new web address as well. Soon www.ArkansasPsychicHypnotist.com and www.ArkansasPsychicMedium.com will be up and running. Special thanks go to my daughter who handles all the technical “stuff”.

Today I invite new and former clients to call or e-mail to schedule their personal private sessions conducted in person or by telephone. My cell phone remains the same: 928-300-2030 and I still have RevLois@gmail.com.

CLOTHES IN THE CLOSET


Yes, at last after all the home renovations I am able to open the bedroom closet and see my old familiar clothes “friends” with me here in Rogers Arkansas. Why is that important? It is mostly because Jake, Booboo and I moved our home base from the far west of Arizona to the heartland of northwest Arkansas.

Nothing seems to settle me down like having familiar things around me. In this case it was my shoes, dresses and sweaters. Opening the closet door and having my red jacket smiling back at me was pure delight. Of course after all the unpacking and reorganizing our little dog Booboo is especially happy to enjoy her usual bed, treats and toys.

When you consider it, most of us are operating on habitual expectations. We depend on the familiar. We have certain firmly held beliefs. We expect to know which cupboard, which drawer holds the knives and forks without a lot of searching. We hold a memory card for that specific location. Also depending on traffic lights as we travel, we know to stop the car without a lot of thought about what a red light means.

In general habit serves us very well indeed until we cease looking at some aspects of it. When we make decisions on life’s recurring issues by merely following what we always do in similar situations, we may cut off some more positive options.

The actions we take may be on seemingly small problems but unfortunately everything we do affects something or someone else. It pays to open up our thinking to allow that there is almost always more than one solution to any challenge.

I was teaching an intuitive development class for the college in Arizona when one of my students asked me to give her a method for forcing her coworker to agree with her own firmly held plan of action. She wanted to mentally force her coworker to see the “right” way. I suggested that just possibly there was more than one way of resolving the problem, more than one possible solution. I guess I was too forceful because my student didn’t return!

Habit many times serves us well. All I am suggesting is that sometimes we need to consider some of our more imbedded habits and automatic reactions. It is good to see if a certain familiar path has lost its usefulness. Occasionally we might catch ourselves using outdated solutions we used as children which no longer work in our adult world.

As a certified clinical hypnotist I am often asked to “reframe” ideas, those old knee jerk reactions and habits for a client. The subconscious mind will do anything for you given the right instructions. Hypnosis is a reliable way of imbedding those new instructions. With the deep meditative state accessed through hypnosis you always have the option of creating a new improved neural pathway for more positive results.

OUR BOO BOO AND “TOMORROW”


Boo Boo is our little mixed breed dog. Yes, she is overweight at 14 pounds (our fault for over indulging her) but nevertheless a real love. I was talking to her this morning and petting her.

I wanted to tell her that in just a few short days the movers will come to load up many of our things for Arkansas. What we didn’t want to take of the furniture would go to charity. You see Boo Boo is very possessive of her things. It is her couch, her eating chair, her special pillow etc. I admit she is terribly spoiled. We treat her like our own little girl. Of course I wanted her to know that there would be a new couch for her to lounge on, even though things were changing, she would have everything she needed.

So while I am trying to explain all this to her, I suddenly realized that dogs have absolutely no concept of “future”. They live totally in the moment: “I have food, I have water or I don’t. Or I need to go out.” So how could I tell her that tomorrow she will have a big grass yard to bury her bones? How could I explain that the lower altitude in Rogers Arkansas would feel better on her hurt foot?

The very best I could do was to keep her close to me and warm. I would be careful not to let any of her special sleeping blankets or pillows get away. I would keep as much of the familiar things close at hand as I could and hope that would be enough. Her comfort is important to me and my partner Jacob.

With all of this I began to think how much better we people might be if we were able to enjoy each one of the “now” moments. If we could be aware of what wonderful things and people we have in our lives in this minute, wouldn’t we be happier? But no, instead of enjoying what we have, when we have it, we are always wandering off with our thoughts into future possibilities where life would be better.

You can be sure that I do as much future planning as anyone. To progress with relationships, work, or play, we need our visions. The immutable laws of attraction and positive energy projection are wonderfully powerful tools. At the same time, it seems more joyous overall to allow also moments through the day to remain conscious of each breath of the beautiful and flowing “now”.

It is for our own healthy living to remind ourselves that this moment in time is important. Every minute of every day is a gift and an opportunity. You are blessed with this earth experience. Live, love and feel with strength and intention.

IF A SINGLE MATCH…

IF A SINGLE MATCH….
If a single match can drive out the darkness in a room, how much more powerful is the “Light” of one illumined person?

Can you by shining your Light release the darkness of negativity or conflict in any situation that presents itself? Could each of as hopeful enlightened souls decide to step away from harsh judgments and instead offer our blessings?

Many times we speak of the desire for peace in our lives and our world. Is it not up to us then to be at peace? Let the words we speak and the thoughts we think be filled with love and gratitude.

Think for a moment about our personal close relationships. Think about our family, intimate friends. Do we allow those people to have ideas that are different from ours? Do we let them express their thoughts without voicing our criticism? Let us remember that there is always more than one way to successfully approach life’s varied challenges.

In addition to be more accepting of our friends and family, let us step away, look away, from the harshness of the news media. Decide to take a lengthy vacation from the bad news of papers and televised disasters. Realize the exaggeration of unhealthy events simply is amplified to draw attention for the purpose of selling a product!

Instead of unhappy reading and viewing, bring your imagination to what is good and desirable. Create with intention. Tap your own latent power with the help of your powerful high self, guides and angels. We are all needed and able to create a better, happier, more positively productive world.

PAINFUL MEMORIES?


If memories from your past are causing you pain today, perhaps it’s time to make some changes. Some of your memories may be tied to relatives or friends who have long since passed. Other memories might be connected to people who are unreachable at this time. It could be some personal action you took or some words you would like to retrieve. Whatever the memory, it can be changed.

I was fortunate in the early 70’s to study with Jose Silva. His course in Mind Control was really a training in self hypnosis. One of the topics in that course was Memory Relief. The object was to take any unhappy memory into the deep levels of your consciousness and begin to tweek it, to adjust it. One little change at a time was “re-remembered” until the inflicted soreness dissolved. This technique was not intended to change anyone else, just to change your personal memory of the event. It hurt no one and freed you from that yoke of pain.

The point of all that adjusting was to reaffirm the fact that the event itself could do no further harm, only the irritating memory was causing the current problem. Let’s take an example. Perhaps the memory that bothers you today is like one of mine from many years ago when I was a little child. I misunderstood something my mother said when she drove us to the old neighborhood. She had some business to tend and she told me it was o.k. to visit my nearby friend.

I believed I had to wait for her to come back to the car before I could see that little friend who was so special to me. I didn’t understand. She expected I would visit while she was busy with her task. When she returned to find me still sitting there, she said it was too late. We had to go back home. My five year old heart was nearly broken.

This may seem to be a small, unimportant memory, but no memory that still causes an ache in your heart is unimportant. In this instance, a memory of that kind can cause an ongoing fear of loss in much more important present day scenarios. Childhood memories can be quite crippling.

Now, as an adult, I can take that memory into my creative consciousness and begin to see the action differently. One bit at a time it can be changed. First, I tell myself that I understand what mother wants. I promise to be quick, to not keep her waiting. Then I hurry down the street to my friend’s door and enter for a visit. The two of us share a giggle and I look at her new toys. I feel it is time to go. I hurry back to the car just as mother comes down the street.

This same technique can be applied gradually to much more serious memories with good results. My late husband was a skilled hypnotist. He worked with one client at a time to help change and heal the varied problems of their lives. I was lucky enough to observe the changes in a number of his patients. Those people he treated would many times drop the depression that had darkened their lives for years. It didn’t matter whether their memories of the past were real or had been simply over embellished and strengthened through the years, they still would yield to positive change. Through a bit of occasional reinforcement the resulting change would become permanent.

The importance of working with and changing unhappy memories cannot be over stated. I never suggest wiping out a memory. Memory “removal” is likely to become suppression and cause even greater harm. The gentle, effective way, is just one positive change at a time. Something that is “just a memory” needs to be addressed because it can cause physical disability as well as emotional and mental stress.

Taking responsibility for our memories, changing them for the better in this way, means not needing to blame anyone or anything for our own recreating of similar events in our lives now. We can stop the cycle and the repetition. It means filling our days and nights with the new joy and peace we can think and imagine today, not reliving the consequences of what we felt or suffered in the past. We can take full responsibility and enjoy a happier more fulfilling life.
