Hypnosis is a way to empower yourself to have the life that you truly want.
Two years before Dr. Wayne Dyer passed, I got a phone call from a woman in New York City. The bright voice on the other end of the line introduced herself by saying, “Hi, I’m Sally. I’m in New York, and my doctor referred me to you for weight loss.”
I thanked her for calling and asked her, “Who is your doctor?”
Her answer surprised me. “Dr. Wayne Dyer. Do you know him?”
How honored I felt! I had met Wayne Dyer at Louise Hay’s, my publisher’s, 80th birthday party. I am a great admirer of Dr. Dyer’s life work and all that he overcame and created in his life.
His life is an inspiring story of faith, trust and perseverance. He was passionate about his message and, despite many obstacles, he was determined to share it. My favorite quote from Dr. Dyer is:
“When you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change.”
His quote so eloquently expresses why my life’s work is using hypnosis personally and sharing it with others. Some people think hypnosis is some mysterious waving of a magic wand or controlling someone else’s mind. This couldn’t be further from the truth.
Hypnosis, in the system that I’ve developed after doing hypnosis-based wellness programs in over 75 hospitals for more than 25 years, is a way to empower yourself to have the life that you truly want. It gives you the tools to be the person you want to be and live the life you desire.
Hypnosis is a tool to help you change your thinking. Try right now to stop thinking sad, painful or fearful thoughts. It may feel impossible! That’s because it truly cannot be done with the conscious mind alone. But hypnosis, when used properly, can help you to access the deeper power of your subconscious mind—which can help you break free from any mental barrier or obstacle.
With hypnosis, you can achieve the happiness and freedom from negativity that your heart desires.
Whether it’s weight loss, healing a relationship, getting healthy, improving finances or transforming any other area of life, I have seen miracles in my own life and the lives of others by tapping into the deeper power of the mind.
The key to freedom always begins with a shift in your thinking—a broadening of your perspective. But if you, like Dr. Dyer’s patient Sally, could have done that with your own conscious mind alone, you already would have. By tapping into the power of your subconscious mind, every symptom you feel—tired, lonely, sad, frustrated, overweight, stressed—no matter how painful, can be transformed.
Happiness, energy, connection, purpose, wealth, weight loss and freedom are all waiting for you. So why do these desires often feel so unattainable or impossible to sustain?
It’s because grasping and trying to force circumstances to be a certain way doesn’t work. What does work is letting go, widening your perspective and accessing your deeper, wise mind and infinite loving heart. By doing so, you can discover that the goals you have—even those that have been seemingly impossible to achieve—can be met.
Every hypnotist has different goals. Stage hypnosis is meant to entertain. My life’s work is not about entertainment. It’s about helping others to wake up and break free from a life of limitation. Whatever is happening in your life right now has the potential to transform you to a higher level of perception and living. When you are willing to witness yourself in your problem state with compassion, and give this same mercy to all the other cast of frightened characters in your drama, you have the ability to widen your perspective to see the net that you are caught in.
Hypnosis uses the power of images and suggestion. Through the lens of your heart, your feelings about your life can transform so that you can have the health, happiness and freedom that you deserve. That’s because when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change. Thank you Wayne Dyer for those insightful words of wisdom.
