HYPNOSIS WORKS!

HYPNOSIS WORKS!

Some years ago I was reluctant to try using my clinical hypnosis skills “long distance”, i.e. by telephone. Fortunately I discovered that I was just as effective and just as much in control that way. It only required a lot of focus and concentration on my part. At any rate I was able to help a number of clients without sitting across from them. It gave me much more leeway! As you probably can tell, I love my work and the results.

If I can help you in any way: to dispatch fears, lose weight, control habits or regain self-confidence; give me a call today for your private appointment.

G..I.V.E.

G.I.V.E.

Many of us who are on earth today have come with specific “jobs”. We are here as way showers and many times we may need a little boost to our self-esteem as well as an energy thrust for our purpose. It is all too easy to pay attention to what is not working or what is “wrong”. For that reason I want to share with you an affirmative prayer method I found on line that is based on The Intention Process.

G. Gratitude

I am so grateful to be living my purpose. I look back and see how my path has lead me so beautifully to this point and it is so good. I so love how life is always working out for me and is leading me to higher heights even when I don’t understand how.

I.  Intention

I intend that I am self-realized and self-actualized and that I have become the person who materializes the good that is seeking to express itself as me. I am resolute in my commitment to living in the awareness that God is all that is and that perfection is the state everything exists in now. I intend that my spiritual work is a blessing to many thousands of people and that it enriches their lives in ways that are meaningful to them. I intend that I am divinely supported in every way and that I am free to be all that my soul desires in its evolution as a part of The Divine Whole.

V. Vision

I see a world full of goodness and love. I see my path powerfully unfolding with ease and grace. I see abundance everywhere. And I see that it is for the highest good of all.

E. Entrust

I entrust this intention to the universe. I trust that it is already done and that the work is complete. I now move forward joyfully playing in the consciousness of well-being taking it for granted that it is showing up in my physical experience in just the right way always at the right time. I praise Life for its ability to get it all done! Thank you God-Happening-Now!

It is my hope that some of you will find this prayer helpful on your path.

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

CLEAR:HURTS/ERRORS/PAIN

Many of my clients suffer from their remembered personal mistakes, hurtful criticism from others or similarly harsh memories. Living with the memories of such tightly held negative experiences can keep them stuck in emotional and mental pain, unable to move forward with their desires on their life path.

Worse yet is our tendency as humans to not only remember the bad times but to make these memories even worse with embellishment! In other words not only do we remember he said this, she said that but we begin amplifying it: “I am sure they told everyone I know. No one will ever forgive me…” On and on it goes until the original event has become nearly global in the memory effect’s intensity!

We need to find a way to let the past be over and done in order to move on and enjoy our own lives. Part of the solution is to see absolutely everything as having been an opportunity to learn. All the things that have happened to any of us have brought us to be who we are today in this now moment. Let’s reframe those seemingly bad experiences as life education and needed information.

When I work with someone in hypnosis before I begin I ask a lot of questions. I need to know how I can help them remember their experiences in the most positive way possible. My belief is we need to view all events as either good (“I learned a lot by that!”) or very good (“I now know how to handle it the next time something similar happens”).

If we can eliminate viewing anything as devastating or horrible, we have a “leg up” to making progress. Instead of trying to live it down let us try living it up. Let those events and experiences be a positive. Why and how a positive? Simply acknowledging the instructions it gave us. We now know better ways of dealing with similar events and do not need to return to any hurtful, negative ways of handling life events and the resulting difficult memories.

If your personal self-esteem has been damaged by any life events and you would like to move forward with your life desires in a positive and assured way, call me today. Your successful living and progress is my priority. You do not need to be stuck. Let me set a personal private appointment to help you with any seeming roadblocks.

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.

NEW YEAR’S “LITTLE BITES”

NEW YEAR’S “LITTLE BITES”

Oh yes, those New Year’s resolutions. We all make-um, we all break-um. If we are totally focused maybe, just maybe, we stay with it till mid-January.

Let’s do it differently this year. Feel free to make all the huge all-encompassing mind blowing resolutions for your desired life changes but then: break them down into manageable little action steps, just some little bites.

For instance let’s say you feel heavy and you want to lose 30 pounds of body weight. Instead resolve to eliminate 3 pounds with each passing week. It isn’t such a terrible frightening goal as the entire 30 pounds. It is attainable without having to constantly worry and fight the battle of the whole amount.

Perhaps you have decided that you would be happier living in another location. Instead of packing your bags on January first, simply resolve to begin researching the possibilities in as many locations as attract you. You might order maps, populations numbers, locations of stores that you feel necessary, cost of rents etc.

Let’s admit it there is something about the start of a brand new year that sometimes causes us (metaphorically) to jump overboard. Breathe! Decide what your optimum end result would be and work backward from there.

If I truly want result “Z” what would I need to do first, what action should I take to accomplish steps “Y” and “X”? Or if I have not build any platform leading up to accomplishing “Z” should I go all the way back to “A”?

I promise you will feel much more in control if you will just outline and put in writing the small actions that lead up to your desired large result. You are more likely to stay the course and obtain the ultimate winning goal by taking action on those “little bites”.

As a certified clinical hypnotist I have helped many clients obtain life-affirming and gratifying results by guiding them one important step at a time. Is there a beautiful change you would like to make for 2017? Do you want this year to be the best one ever? Let’s plan together. I am here to help you.

LIVE NOW!

You and I are living in a time of sweeping changes. At times here on earth the economy, world governments, everything and everyone seems to be in flux. On a more personal level many of us have been aghast as we watched our finances tank. Some of us watched our relationships crash and burn. A few of us felt helpless as our physical health begin teetering on the brink.

There is good news however. You do not need to identify yourself by your current but passing experiences.

You do not need to call yourself “broke” because you are temporarily without the funds you would like to have.

You do not have to feel “loveless” or “deserted” just because one or two friends or even a spouse walked away.

You do not need to label yourself “sick” because your body is hurting here or there. Why make it worse by announcing to everyone you meet that you are feeling bad?

What you need to do is quite the opposite. With as much enthusiasm as you can muster you need to begin seeing yourself as a wonderful positive creator and manifestor of each of your now moments and your future destiny.

You know that you are made of Light. You are made of Love. You can do or be anything you choose.

You need to begin seeing yourself with all the abundance you could ever need or want. Know that you have more than enough money to spare and to share. Affirm that you are rich. Declare that each one of your financial desires or needs is instantly met.

Furthermore, today you must acknowledge that you are not only loved but loving. The very earth embraces you. Be grateful and appreciate the wonder of love that you are. Daily with gratitude and thankfulness you need to send that love forward to others from the depths of your being. That love you send out will rush back to you magnified a thousand times.

Believe that every nerve and cell in the body is continually healthy and regenerating because in truth it is. Appreciate the gift of overflowing health. Be grateful for it. Send that appreciation and gratefulness to each and every one of your physical organs. Send loving thankfulness to your heart, your lungs, your skin. They are alive. They will hear and respond with increased health.

Possessing your own personal human body is a wonderful gift from Spirit. Why? Because if you will really look at your human body and the life you are leading with that body you can see the results of your emotional and mental handiwork. You will have visual proof of what you believe, what you think about and what you feel.

This body of yours, this life you are experiencing, is your canvas. You paint on it day by day, hour by hour. You make it drab or colorful. You make it happy or sad. It is your lessons, your workbook and your test.

There is no need for you to mirror the past. Whether the past is five minutes past or fifteen years past, let it go. Manifest what you have always dreamed of now, today. Your soul is standing by ready to help.

Habitual thoughts, habitual emotions, habitual attitudes and habitual actions can be your finest friends or your most terrifying and destructive enemies. If any habit of yours is bringing unhappiness and grief into your life experience change that habit today.

When you become aware of a dark and gloomy daydream making its home in your mind do this: say to that thought “This is not my story!” Say it again. “This is not my story.” Push that thought form away from you.

Of course, you realize that anytime you create an empty spot, a mental vacuum, you must fill it. So go directly to the beautiful happy picture you want. Play your wonderful heartfelt dream over and over until there is no room for the gloom. Play it with sound, color, fragrance any additives you can think or imagine but make it real.

In all aspects you have the power to be brand new today. For instance, we know for certain that each day many of the cells of your body are replaced, made new. Why not allow those new cells to be truly new instead of mere replications of yesterday?

You have the power to change your experience and your body by replacing any habitual negative thinking with positive, growth filled thinking!

If you feel it would help, try falling back on what has worked for you before: the affirmations, the prayers, any positive literature. Begin to wipe your slate clean of any miss qualified energies. Then fill those newly empty spaces with the thoughts and feelings of your soul’s heartfelt desires.

Let the negative mental pathways go. See and feel with positive intent only. In other words, begin to carve new mental and emotional roadways to your personal success.

You have the power and you are in charge. Decide to open your energy receptors to the most enlightened thinking you can create. Throw away any self limits. You do not need limitations of any kind. Tell yourself that you are open to all good things.

What others think or believe about you need not affect you in the slightest. BE AWARE THAT THOSE ENERGIES THAT WILL ALWAYS AFFECT YOU ARE YOUR OWN. The seeds you plant moment to moment are shaping your life. Fear, gratitude, love, resistance all of these are seeds, emotional and mental seeds that will grow and become visible manifestations in your life.

If there is any appearance in your life that you do not like decide to change the attitude, thought or feeling that brought it to you. Truly look at what you are sending out on a daily basis. You are your words and thoughts. Replace your beliefs and you will replace the effects.

A few days ago I read about Meagan Bilodeau. Meagan is an 8 year old girl who put a message in a bottle while her family was enjoying a vacation on a cruise ship near Bermuda. She wrote a note including her phone number asking whoever found the bottle to “please, please, please” let her know. Doesn’t that sound like an 8 year old?

Her father told her to toss the bottle over the side of the cruise ship into the Atlantic Ocean. He believed that her message would probably drift on the currents to Europe and hopefully be found there.

That was not what happened. Meagan was delighted when she received a phone call from another little girl, 10 years old, who found the bottle only 15 miles from Meagan’s home in Falmouth Massachusetts. In other words instead of following the natural ocean currents the bottle with her note seemingly followed the strong energy of Meagan’s “please, please, please” desire.

There is a great deal of TRUTH hiding in that result. Everything we do, everything we say, think or feel always “follows us home.” For that reason alone it pays each of us to be aware of what we are giving to the current of life.

The energy each of us emits tends to grow or amplify and return in a strong recognizable form. Where the results of our lives are concerned there simply are no secret thoughts or hidden agendas.

The good news is that we each contain the ability to change. We can redirect the most negative and ingrained energy to new more positive paths. Nothing is incurable. Every so called personal flaw can be brought to the Light.

You have at your disposal today all the energy you will ever need to create the life you were born to express and enjoy. You have no limits! Take charge of your thinking and your emotions. You have the right and the ability to bring about your own idea of perfection whatever it may be and—WHATEVER YOU BELIEVE, YOU ARE RIGHT!

I am Reverend Lois Cheney wishing for you the most beautiful life you can dream or imagine. My joy is helping clients to attain their goals by providing accurate and detailed information for overcoming challenges and amplifying the quality of their lives.

I welcome you to contact me for your personal reading appointment. In your private session your guides, angels and I will address any area of your life that concerns you. Bring all your questions! You will receive a complete cassette recording of your reading for your later review.

“NOTHING COMES FROM NOTHING…”

“NOTHING COMES FROM NOTHING…”

Yes, it is a line from the musical “The Sound of Music”. In my mind I can still hear Julie Andrews’s beautiful voice in the movie version. “Nothing comes from nothing. Nothing ever could. So somewhere in my youth or childhood, I must have done something good.”

Doesn’t that sound like what we call our “karmic returns”? In other words it is the deeds you perform, the emotions you send forward, the thoughts you continual rehearse, and your habitual ways of relating to life events that create your life experiences by way of the immutable and universal law of karma.

If you are not thrilled with the situations in your life today, fortunately creating positive change is remarkably simple. As a hypnotist I have helped many people make sweeping changes with the use of hypnotherapy. To create wonderful life affirming results all you need to do is change what you are focusing upon. Bring gratitude, joy, love and light into your thinking and emotions. It is easy to see what isn’t working but much more important and profitable to look for what is possible and beautiful.

I hear you say “but what if this negativity is just from some past life of mine? I can’t change that.” The good news is it makes no difference how an unwanted situation arrived or what drew it into your experience. What does matter is that you begin today to think, feel, speak and act differently, in a much more positive vein. You may well be surprised how quickly you can create beautiful changes to benefit all your days.

Among the many other ways of improving your personal karmic returns is to take a deliberate 2 week news fast: no TV, no radio, no internet. The so called news being spewed forth by the various media is deliberately focused on what is wrong with our world not what is right. Just stop listening to what is wrong. It is much better to believe that within any soul’s action or any groups’ action, no matter how seemingly horrible, there is still the possibility of great light and love present within each individual. All people, regardless of their current actions, are still endowed with a fantastic spirit which can be awakened.

If enough of the earth’s population began using heartfelt gratitude in addition to adopting an unwavering belief in love and light and continually sent those energies forth we could reach the wonderful tipping point of 51%. In other words that percentage of positive energy being poured forth would change the whole world. It could mean the end to senseless acts of violence!

The good news is that reaching the tipping point could begin with you and me using our positive thoughts, actions and emotions. Are you with me? Let’s start today!

WHAT BETTER TIME?

WHAT BETTER TIME?

Yes, what better time than right now as the New Year approaches to clean your mental, emotional and physical house?

Your mental “cupboard” filled with your past experiences and ideas may have been presenting you with the same old beliefs and decisions over and over. As a hypnotist I know habits are powerful but they can be changed! What if you were to decide to make your own thoughts and desires concerning possibilities for the year 2016 much different? What positive results might present themselves if you were to look at life differently?

Perhaps this year is the year to believe in your own dynamically unlimited possibilities. You could make this coming year the time to assert your own latent abilities and self-esteem! Go ahead with faith and bring forward those things you always wanted to do or even wanted to try but were reluctant to attempt because of imagined possible failure. Make January 1, 2016 a springboard for new experiences. Make all of 2016 your best year yet!

Do you need to change your emotional responses also? We can be so accustomed to responding to certain events in a preprogramed emotional way that we simply fail to notice there could be another response. In other words we might feel that this or that other event is working against us when in fact we can use any situation by drawing on its energy to move forward!

Our automatic emotional responses can be changed. Instead of “oh no” when a seemingly significant “roadblock” appears we might feel or say “isn’t that interesting” and just keep moving ahead. In fact harsh or obviously unwarranted criticism from anyone can be allowed to bounce off you or even be used energetically to propel you forward to your personal desires or destination. Your emotional responses to life events matter!

Why would I mention cleaning your physical house as well? Our homes when they house unused or unusable items can contribute to cluttered thinking and negative reactions as well. For instance is there something that you own that is owning you? Are you required to dust it, move it around, move around it or otherwise care for it when you really don’t want or need it? In other words anything whether it is clothing or appliances or furniture that is no longer of use, needs to be donated, sold or tossed.

It is particularly heavy and potentially depressing to be “warehousing” the clothing of someone who used to live with you and is long gone elsewhere. Your home needs to be your home! Make your possessions serve you, not the other way around. You might be pleasantly surprised at how airy and light your home’s energy will feel when you discard any unnecessary items.

Clearing and cleaning your past mental storage, your emotional responses and your physical home can result in a whole new and more positive you. All three aspects of sanitizing can bring you to see all of your experiences with new eyes. You really can become more of the person you were born to be. Just tackle one aspect at a time. Be ready to be pleasantly surprised at how your life experience will change!

HOW ‘NEW’ WILL YOUR NEW YEAR BE?

As we birth the New Year 2016, our thoughts return to the year now past. Perhaps we feel many things could have been better. We see loss in various human arenas…finance, institutions, relationships, and more.

We need to ask ourselves if we want a rehash of 2015 or if we are willing to make the effort to create situations and events in and around us that are truly new. To have a “new” year we must begin to think, act and feel differently about ourselves, our experiences and our abilities.

At this special time of new beginnings I offer these ideas: First, forget the so called “failures” of the twelve months past. Those losses and the actions that created them are over. Instead whip out a sheet of paper and pen. Begin to write everything you did that was a “win”.

Call your list MY SUCCESSES. Documenting your “wins” as a list will be the first step toward your new creation, your new journey. Whatever you did at any time that brought you a good feeling about yourself, your motives and your abilities, write it on your list! The act of writing anything gives it special enlivening energy.

The reason for this exercise is not to encourage living in the past but to allow you to remember and feel those special positive energy and power filled times. What name do you give the power behind those winning memories? Do you think of it as the energy of intuition, Spirit, God, I Am, High Self, Light or Love? Whatever name you give to it that power is still with you to use in any way you can think, dream or imagine.

By making the “My Successes” list you will begin to remember many previously forgotten successful decisions and adventures. Take that energy of success, use it to model your ideal new year.

Did you know that your powerful subconscious will always carry out your orders? Every repetitious thought and emotion you feed to it will be saved, worked with and brought to manifestation. It is a 24-hour-a-day worker. It never becomes tired and it never grows old. Be sure to feed it with your highest thoughts and feelings.

When you access your own “feel good” emotion you have accessed your personally powerful fuel and igniter fluid for constructive manifestation. Throw out any limiting ideas. You know what you desire. Now you have the way to ignite those desires!

It is no secret that most of us can tell you what didn’t work in our lives or what isn’t working. Why fritter away our dynamic energy resources on such a wasteful pastime?

Start cleaning your mental and emotional “house”. When a particular personal habit is a stumbling block, it not only has to be removed but it has to be replaced! It is good to remember that anytime you create a vacuum by removing an idea or emotion, you need to replace it. Otherwise that “hole” will be filled with the “first available”. Most likely it won’t be what you would wish.

As you add to your winning list you will build your confidence in your ability to make changes. The exercise will also bring to the surface new inventive ideas. Start a second list of POSSIBILITIES.

Allow the new ideas to approach you as they are. Just because a particular idea seems beyond your abilities at the moment, write it down anyway. Remember that tomorrow everything can change. What seems impossible today may be right next week.

Do not throw away any of your inspired thoughts. Acknowledge each of them as they arrive. WHEN IN DOUBT…WRITE IT DOWN!

I would like to share with you an excerpt from an e-mail I received from The Intenders group some years ago:

“You are called, now, to give birth to a new way of life for yourself and for all those who walk this world with you. You stand poised at the threshold of great expansion in your perceptions, your possibilities, and your consciousness.

Now is not the time to settle for less or to think small! You are here to rise up and out of the prevailing paradigm of beliefs by shining your light, sharing your joy and your love.”

Happy 2016! May it be your best year yet!
