A story of how hypnosis cured insomnia and changed things in a young woman's life.
All parents know the trials and tribulations of living with a teenager. But, for some of us,, it can be more challenging. Approximately six months ago, Janee (pronounced zsh-yuh-nee) visited Lakes Region Hypnosis Center. She was a fifteen year old teenager who came me with a severe case of insomnia. She and her mother were at their wit's end because lack of sleep was affecting Janee and also her family. Her moods ran the gambit of irritability, moodiness, outbursts of crying and/or anger, anxiety and even bouts of depression began to creep into her life. While other teenagers her age were experiencing healing sleep, she was tossing and turning and never reaching that sleep stage required by the body and mind; or if she did it was for insignificantly short periods of time.
Janee is a typical teenager with all the trials and tribulations afforded a teenage life nowadays. Think about the average teenager today and what they experience versus when we were that age. The difference is probably like night and day. Not only is there need to fit in and be accepted, or the pressures of relationships (societal and familial) prevalent, but today we have something that did not exist when we were young: a deadly pandemic. Puberty is tough enough with the ever intrusive hormonal barrage! Add to that the uncertainty of a potential deadly viral infection from COVID-19 and you now have an already stressed youngster about to explode from anxiety. It's no wonder there has been a rise in anxiety and depression (even more so among teenagers) as a result of today's daily ???????.
Think about what Janee's mind is pelted with on a daily basis. Do my friends like me? Do I look right? Why does so-and-so not like me? Who doesn't accept me as I am and why? Why do they make fun of me (real or perceived)?
Other things this young person may be thinking about are:
1. the environment is messed up and survival may be questionable,
2. a parent or both is out of work,
3. someone she knows has COVID-19 or in the hospital,
4. college is not affordable and/or I will be paying for the rest of my life,
5. grandma is suffering from a dementia disease, and
6. whatever else can hitch a ride.
It is no wonder she can't sleep. She is too stressed out to sleep because her mind won't let her rest, even when she drifts off never reaching that deep restorative level. She can even feel helpless and hopeless which may even give way to question their existence or usefulness.
Janee's parents grew more concerned for her welfare. She was not making the progress they thought should have been present by seeing a therapist . Medication and dosage seemed to always be adjusted upward for her anxiety and sleep. Addressing the problem with "talk" therapy can take a lot of time, that is "if" the cause is ever discovered. Mom decided to take the chance and have her come to Peaceful Light Healing & Hypnosis AT THE Lakes Region Hypnosis Center here in Tilton New Hampshire. Through an intake questionnaire, we were able to pinpoint some things that were important to Janee and proceed with a successful hypnosis session. That is right, only one session. And guess what, Janee is still sleeping through the the night and is less stressed during the day. According to a testimonial letter from her mom, when Janee arises in the morning, her appearance is as if she had a good night's sleep; AND her bed looks as if it was hardly slept in. Apparently the bed used to be so disheveled that if looked as if a WWE wrestling match was held in the bed.
The bottom line is that insomnia impacts our daily lives in negative ways, sometimes without realizing it. Hypnosis is a chemical free way to eliminate not only the insomnia itself, but some of the root causes of the insomnia. If you suffer from insomnia and stress related issues, please contact a hypnotist at Peaceful Light Healing and Hypnosis AT THE Lakes Region Hypnosis Center to see how hypnosis can help you help yourself. Everyone deserves to live a healthy, happy forever.
Welcome to Lakes Region Hypnosis Center's information sharing blog
I would like to begin my blogging career (sounds funny for a 60-something to be saying) by just introducing myself and some of the services we provide. My goal is to introduce you all to me and the wonderful worlds of hypnosis and other alternative, less expensive (in the long run) healing modalities we provide and clearly work. My intention is to also educate the public through my blogging.
I am a 67 year old who refuses to retire. I have worn many hats in my many careers, one could say it took me a long time to discover what I wanted to be or do when I grew up. I will say it did take me a while though. I've been part of management team where I was responsible for a multi-million dollar communication budget in a large financial institution. I left the corporate world as a thirty something and became a healthcare worker in a county nursing home. This was a very rewarding vocation by the way, but the greedy corporate world began sticking their fingers in the proverbial pot and infesting that career with their greed and gluttony. But, that's a whole different blogging path for the politically inclined, and does not belong here. I finished my career as a political action coordinator for a national public employee union and was forced out to pasture. Yes folks, even the unions have their dark side. But, I've always wanted to help others along the way, a healer so to speak. Whether a human client or a pet client (Animal Reiki attuned), I have always been driven to open up my heart, mind and arms to those who need some assistance along the way.
I began seeking a healing path for myself and something to provide comfort to others. I entered my chrysalis stage, my transition to the more spiritual path, that of a provider of proven alternative healing modalities. I became a Reiki Master/Teacher, actually being attuned through a local Reiki Master from Gilmanton and another from the West Coast. and still felt there there was more. I began various training along the way, as a physical medium, a crystal worker, and so on and so forth. I rounded out my resume at the Thomas Institute of Hypnosis and the National Guild of Hypnotists becoming a Certified Consulting Hypnotist. And this is the "Readers Digest" version of how I got to where I am now.
Operating out of Tilton, New Hampshire, ergo the name Lakes Region Hypnosis Center; we also perform Reiki healing sessions under Peaceful Light Healing (or PLH). PLH was my first organization and is now a part of our Lakes Region Hypnosis Center operation. Effectively combining both powerful tools (Hypnosis & Reiki) and we have created a healing modality second to none and without OPIODS. Healing others is a love and passion for us. Continuous education in the art of hypnosis on a regular basis, as well as consuming mandatory reading material is part of our modus operandi and in our operations manual. We also teach healing techniques at various metaphysical facilities and institutions. Sharing information at community events and local libraries, schools, and other public and private venues is always on our agenda. So please, continue to watch this website for updated events. Maybe learn a thing or two about hypnosis, Reiki, or even a bit about physical mediumship. But, be sure to watch my blogs for upcoming information to help demystify hypnosis and bring it to the forefront of where it belongs. The subconscious mind is a powerful tool for healing; and remember this, "if you can think it, it CAN happen". And don't forget about the Reiki!
Future posts will include myths and phobias of hypnotism, pain management, healthy living, stress and stressors, encountering negative suggestions and negative self talk, self hypnotism, emotional trauma, mind-body spirit, subconscious mind, daily affirmations and intentions, circumstance or predetermined, deja vu all over again, breathing techniques, Reiki, chakra centers, Past Life Regression "real or not" and many more topics on healing. So until the next post,
Breath - Relax - Heal.
P.S. Please let me know how I performed in my first blog post ever.
