Every January feels like a new beginning, and while I used to be way more aggressive about mapping out my goals (and attacking them!) I’ve learned in the last couple years that being in the energy of receiving – a slower, easier energy- brings the results more smoothly and lovelier. And this makes sense because while January is a great time to manifest and dream big, we’re still in the season of winter, which energetically is about moving a little more slowly.
The Law of Attraction
Which brings me to the Law of Attraction. For any of you who’ve read books on the Law of Attraction (The Secret being among the most known but not necessarily a gold standard), the Law of Attraction states that positive thoughts attract positive circumstances while negative thoughts attract negative outcomes in our lives. The Law of Attraction is based on the belief that thoughts are a form of energy and that positive energy has the strength to attract success in all areas of life, including health, finances, and relationships. Today, it’s easy to find research demonstrating a link between a positive mindset and improved health, and experts like Dr. Joe Dispenza provide lots of cases demonstrating that we can change not only our health but our life circumstances by directing our own consciousness.
Hypnosis + The Law of Attraction
With a desire to cultivate more of a ‘receive and attract’ approach this year, I booked a session with Hypnotherapist + Intuitive Health Coach, Nicole Plaza, who’s sessions combine Hypnosis and The Law of Attraction.
For those new to Hypnotherapy, this modality involves a process of directing subconscious thoughts toward patterns of well being. Hypnosis has been used for over 100 years to help people with issues from low self-esteem to breaking bad habits like smoking, and has been proven to be an effective means for easing a wide variety of physical, emotional, and psychological problems. It works by inducing a natural state of relaxation, which opens us up to access the tools for wellness that already exist within.
As my husband says, I’m a bit of a brick wall when it comes to being guided, which is why I honestly didn’t really think anyone could hypnotize my overactive mind. That said, hypnotherapy was not what I expected (no barking or quacking!) and I didn’t feel *too* much more ‘entranced’ than I would be in a deep meditation. Nicole works with a much different type of hypnotherapy than what most of us have seen on TV, and her session was a lot more gentle and meditative than I expected.
What Does a Hypnotherapy Session Look Like?
Nicole uses a hypnotic meditation called Mind Reset Hypnotherapy, which also includes energy healing, to bring her clients into a deeply meditative state. We began with a brief introduction, and then Nicole led me on a meditative, guided journey and visualisation, weaving in Law of Attraction work by aligning my subconscious to discover the root my desires at the subconscious level.
I personally came to the session wanting to know what I needed to do, to move a few things forward with my business this year. Overall, my intention was to use the session to support my 2022 manifestations and get clarification around any specific challenges.
The hypnosis session was gentle yet powerful, and I received some insightful messages that I’m continuing to reflect on. As Nicole guided the visualizations, I was flooded with colours and a sense of inner peace as I opened to receive the insights and messages that came through, and they did keep coming! The most powerful one that came through is this: I am here to share my healing gifts and these are coming through all I do. This message gave me an overwhelming confirmation that there’s no need to compartmentalize my life anymore. Whether I’m offering breathwork sessions, helping businesses with their marketing, or sharing spiritual news + resources via H+H, all of these are equal expressions of who I am. Overall, my takeaway was a deep sense of peace and alignment to the energy of how I want to run my business in 2022. Knowing that our state of being fuels everything we do, this was an incredibly important confirmation to prioritize my own deep alignment.
