WHY CHANGE IS HARD
Harvard neuroscientist Dr. Stephen M. Kosslyn says, "People think that sights, sounds and touch from the outside world constitute reality. But the brain constructs what it perceives based on past experience."
In his book 'Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself', Dr. Joe Dispenza states that 95% of who we are by the age of 35 is a set of memorized behaviors, skills, emotional reactions, beliefs, perceptions and attitudes, creating our subconscious computer program. Our conscious mind, estimated at nearly only 5% of our brain, is informed by and has to battle against that 95% in order to actualize change. We can often feel like we're making progress, and then suddenly hit a wall of resistance that we can't quite break through.
Imagine that there is a door between our conscious and subconscious minds, and in order to modify that proverbial computer program we need to enter through it. Our understanding of what a door is, what that door would look like and what would be required to open it is informed by our past experiences with doors and walls, so we may not even perceive that one is directly in front of us. With hypnosis, a controlled, safe altered-state, the brain can suspend the critical factor of the mind that insists that there is a wall of separation between the two to begin with, and what an individual desires with their conscious mind to be their reality may become it.
The subconscious mind being the most significant operator of our minds and bodies, access to it through hypnotherapy allows for positive impact on thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physiology.

"THE UNIVERSAL AND EVER-PRESENT URGE TO SELF-TRANSCENDENCE IS NOT TO BE ABOLISHED BY SLAMMING THE CURRENTLY POPULAR DOORS IN THE WALL. THE ONLY REASONABLE POLICY IS TO OPEN OTHER, BETTER DOORS IN THE HOPE OF INDUCING MEN AND WOMEN TO EXCHANGE THEIR OLD HABITS FOR NEW AND LESS HARMFUL ONES.”

*ANOTHER KIND OF DOOR
For some, access to the subconscious mind not only opens a door for desired change for this life, but for past ones as well. You may feel that the struggles you experience have no roots or explanation in your present lifetime. For those who have an existing belief in reincarnation, or curiosity in the possibility of it, I would love to help guide you through your exploration. Fostering healing in all lives, present and past (or simultaneous for the non-linear) is a process I approach with great respect.
