Self-Hypnosis

We are creatures of habit — otherwise, we would not be able to get through the day. The skill of driving is one such habit. Walking, talking and typing without looking at the keys are others. Our habits are created and stored in the subconscious area of our mind. Some habits benefit us, others don’t. Self-hypnosis is one way we communicate with our subconscious, to change a habit without the sometimes torturous use of willpower, that it may take to stop smoking, stick to a diet, conquer an emotion — we have all been there.

You can use self-hypnosis to improve what’s already in your life, such as negative feelings and thoughts about yourself, someone else, or a cautious situation. You can create a new habit — exercising, smiling more, being punctual, you name it. It’s easier than you think. Here’s how to do it. I’ve chosen, for an example, starting an exercise regime.
Prepare an affirmation that states what you want to do. In this case, for an exercise regime you could say: “I really like my exercise sessions every day. I get in better shape each and every day.” Keep your affirmation short, simple and positive. It’s important not to use any negative words, such as “won’t,” “can’t,” “don’t,” or “not.” Your subconscious doesn’t “recognize” these words, and you could end up producing the opposite effect! The next step involves a short meditation.

1. When you have 20 to 30 minutes to yourself, sit comfortably (or lie down if you won’t fall asleep), close your eyes, and relax different parts of your body, one at a time. For example, focus on your left foot, and mentally say, “relax.” Move on to the right foot, right leg, left leg, and on up, saying, “relax” each time. By the time you have completed relaxing your entire body, you will feel quite peaceful and ready to program (or reprogram) a habit.

2. Now repeat your affirmation, and as you do so, imagine yourself working out, feeling good, and looking good. Continue this visualization for as long as you like. When you are done, wait a minute or two and then slowly open your eyes.

Your new “programming,” needs to be reinforced, for it to become a solid habit. Repeat your affirmation and visualization practice followed by your exercise session for numerous days, so that it begins to feel like a habit. The self-hypnosis practice and the exercise routine can be as long or as short as you like.

When reinforcing a new habit, repetition is key until it is running on autopilot. And that way, you’ll miss it when you don’t do it.
You can apply this technique of self-hypnosis for most things. When it comes to a bad habit, I have always found more success in creating a new habit rather than changing what’s there. In time, the new habit will supersede the old one.

Now that you know what to do, I’m sure you can think of plenty of ways to put self-hypnosis to good use.

~Soulmates~

Finding your Soulmate

We all yearn for a relationship where our partner respects our feelings and wants, and loves us unconditionally. Where we never have to fear being rejected, deserted or betrayed. Can this ever really be? Well, there are lucky couples out there that have found each other and are living “happily ever after.” They are soulmates.

The soulmate tie comes from sharing many past lives together. It is said that soulmates make a pact to reincarnate at the same time so they can experience and learn life’s lessons together. There’s usually a very strong love bond between the two souls. However, there can also be the opposite – a very strong hate bond. In that situation the two individuals are coming together so their souls can work through the hate and turn it into love.

How do you know if you are with your soulmate? Usually when soulmates first meet, they are irresistibly drawn to each other. One person may have a very strong sense that they knew the other from before.  They experience a feeling of déjà vu, or, simply, everything about this person just seems so familiar, but they are unsure why.

Within a very short time of meeting, you find a strong kinship, a powerful empathy, and frequently are able to read each other’s thoughts. You may even notice that you think alike, that you process information in the same manner. You may have much in common, perhaps too much for two people who come from different backgrounds.

There is another kind of spiritual tie that can occur between two individuals. This is often referred to as Twin Flames. A Twin Flame is where two individuals were together as one “Divine Spark,” which split into two at the time of incarnation. Their life purposes are the same – they are of the same Source. These two souls are usually overjoyed to join as one again. There may have also been shared past lives between them. If you are one of a Twin Flame, this does not mean that you will not encounter the usual human problems and dilemmas. It does mean, however, that you share the same journey through life and can work together toward a common goal.

Of course the best way to find out for sure if you are with your soulmate or Twin Flame is to have an astrologer do a comparison between your two horoscopes. There are certain signs that will reveal if this is so.

Another good way to check out this possibility is to have a reading by a psychic who can look into your Akashic records. These records contain everything that your soul has ever experienced. If you have spent many lifetimes with another soul, his or her imprint would be upon your Akashic record. While you are having the reading, you might want to find out what lessons you two have come together to experience in this lifetime.

If you are in a relationship that comes from a soulmate tie and you are having troubles, it is worth trying to work things out. It is worth getting psychological or spiritual/psychic counseling in order to let the wonderful love bond flow back into your lives.

Whether it is a soulmate relationship or a Twin Flame relationship, the partners can come together at any age. Your soulmate or Twin Flame may not always be your first love or first partner. Sometimes you may only come together to share a brief moment in time. Consider yourself blessed if you have found your true mate, even if only for a short interlude.
