Hypnotherapy, Money & Deserving ~ A Spiritual Journey

MoneybirdOften the idea of linking spirituality with money is met with a scoffy eyeball, especially in the field of Mind, Body & Spirit health. But let’s be honest, with money you have more time to explore your spiritual pursuits. Money may not be everything BUT it does make this life journey, in human form, much easier to navigate.

I first began my journey into Clinical Hypnotherapy, with Elizabeth MacKay, in order to explore what it was that was holding me just out of arms reach of realizing complete financial freedom. Over the past months, what I’ve experienced is a true, deep and profound acceptance of the abundance in my life and in the world around me. On some level I have always felt the universe to be abundant but never seemed to be able to truly integrate that…until now.

Our sessions focused on the subconscious blocks I had put up regarding my self-worth, self-esteem, and deservability. The first negative message I heard about money was at the age of a few months old as my parents fought about how they couldn’t afford to have me. Yet here I am and now am able to look back to all of those events where I decided that I couldn’t afford to be in the world, but also, through awareness, have been able to change the message.

It was funny how all of this began. A few months ago I was thinking that at some point I would like to put a clothesline out in my backyard. Loving the idea of fresh, sun-dried sheets I tucked the idea away in my mental “to do at some point in the future” list. Within a week a friend who was visiting mentioned that she had a brand new clothesline umbrella that she was taking to the thrift store. Pretty quick with that manifestation!

So right at the start of my first session with Elizabeth I asked her why. Why could I manifest a clothesline so quickly but struggled with manifesting financial freedom. Her response “because I bet during your whole entire lifetime no one has said anything negative to you about clothes lines!” True enough, as far as I can remember. Actually I’ve always been able to quickly manifest some things while others take longer. The negative messages around money were free-flowing. My father grew up during the depression and was in University when I was born, my mother lived in Portsmouth during World War 2, I was raised by a single working parent and became one myself, plus media, plus societal views, plus, plus, plus… Any of this sounding familiar?

We live within the boundary that we set for ourselves, consciously and unconsciously.

I grew up listening to messages that money was scarce, or that you had to work and work really hard to receive money, that single parents were always broke, that it was best not to expect to receive in order to avoid disappointment, that money was for some people but not for others, basically that money was a negative subject to be avoided at all costs!

Elizabeth has helped me to realize how ingrained those messages have been, and how to create new ones.

The result has been not only a change to my financial picture but a new found freedom in watching for “old” and outdated messages within me, turning them around and allowing a new message to unfold and to guide me. To allow myself, my business and my soul to break free of some pretty well forged chains and imagine far greater journeys than I ever thought possible. That has been the truly abundant gift that I’ve been blessed with.

Changing Your Limiting Beliefs Around Money

YOU do not want to miss this workshop! I have had the benefit of participating in Clinical Hypnotherapy sessions with Elizabeth around this very issue and have been absolutely amazed at the results! It is astounding to me how much baggage I was dragging around through my life around money and mostly from messages received earlier on in life … and just as amazing was how easy it was to see this, release it and move forward with what I know to be true.
Elizabeth is a compassionate and knowledgeable colleague who has a true desire to help others lead better lives! You can find out more about her by visiting her website at www.peacefulhypnotherapy.com

THE WORKSHOP!

Do you…understand the law of attraction, but are still unable to manifest the life you desire?!

Have you…read all the books, done the affirmations but still can’t unlock the blocks?

Do you have healthy beliefs about money? Or Is your mind working against you in your quest for financial freedom?


Your attitude towards money is actively creating your financial reality
Ladies, it’s time to begin manifesting the life you want, by this time tomorrow.  During this Workshop we will teach you how to use hypnosis, tapping and unique visualization techniques to identify and undo sabotaging patterns and to create powerful subconscious changes which will serve you better and allow you to make the changes you want in your life.
If you’re a woman who is always struggling to have enough money, the biggest factor holding you back is simply the way you think about money on a Subconscious level. Let’s change that!

Reiki and the Art of Sharing

Whether through individual sessions or classes this amazing ancient healing art is imbued with love and light!

789What is Reiki?

Reiki (pronounced Ray-key) is an ancient Japanese healing art that encourages the natural energies that are around and within us to come into balance. Like the energies that help a plant to grow, blossom and develop Reiki provides a space for our mind, body and spirit to do the same. When our body is in a state of total relaxation it has the opportunity to heal itself, Reiki promotes this way of being and increases the energy within us that is often depleted through stress, trauma and illness. Enhancement of health and reduction of stress encourages the body, mind and spirit to come into a state of harmony and retain a sense of peace within.

Reiki is beneficial for relieving many symptoms that are associated with headaches (whether migraine or stress related), PMS & Menopause symptoms, Depression and Stress, Injury due to accident or surgery, Arthritis, Respiratory illnesses, MS and works exceptionally well to relieve the pain and nausea associated with Chemotherapy and Radiation. It balances, refreshes, rejuvenates and restores!

A Reiki Master since 1996, I follow the traditional Usui method of Reiki in both the sessions shared with clients and classes shared with students. 786 The practice of Reiki has become a daily way of living gently and lovingly upon the earth and is just a natural part of sharing love with my family (including pets), friends, clients and the world around me. One benefit I find to Reiki is the ability (after taking the 2nd degree) to send Reiki to others. On the rare occasions that I do watch the news and witness some of the tragedies that are reported locally and around the world I am able to send Reiki out to hopefully help and heal those that are injured from earthquake, war, tsunami, etc. and I am honoured, that in some small way, I can share the gift that is Reiki. The comment often made is “you seem so calm” and Reiki would be the reason for that sense of peace within.

This advanced study of Reiki energy focuses on the practitioner’s connection with Universal energy both conceptually and energetically. Reiki energy is explored through the spirit of oneness and is beneficial whether you plan to continue to the Master/Teacher level or not. It will improve and strengthen the flow of Reiki energy for yourself and assist in developing confidence as a Reiki practitioner. Taking the journey inward to reach and heal our own core is essential to advancing our sharing of Reiki energy. Students often find this level to be one of the biggest steps and an empowering experience in their personal sense of deep inner peace. Prior to the class are a series of assignments intended to be supportive as well as informative to both the practitioner and the teacher, helping both of us to develop further insight into your understanding of Reiki. There are no wrong answers to the assignment questions as we all practice Reiki in an individual way. Reiki assignments will be given upon paid registration.

During the Reiki Class you will

  • Be given the Master Symbol which facilitates unlocking the full potential of Reiki Energy and assists to greatly increase healing
  • Learn meditative techniques to develop a clearer channel of  life force energy, expand consciousness, strengthen the mind and become one with the Master Symbol
  • Take the Chakra balancing techniques taught in Reiki 2 and learn to clear and re-energize those that are “stuck”
  • Learn how to clear, energize and imbue crystals with Reiki energy
  • Learn how to bring Crystals, Aromatherapy and Colour Therapy into your practice to enhance Reiki energy
  • Learn different methods of creating sacred space for Reiki practice and sessions through participating in setting up the space for the day’s class
  • Have the opportunity to practice what you’ve learned through sharing a session and to also experience the increased energy through receiving a session
  • Take home notes with information shared from various Reiki Masters regarding the 3rd degree, the Master Symbol and ways in which to use it, information about chakra clearing, crystals, aromatherapy and colour therapy
  • Receive a Reiki 3 kit that will include crystals, essential oils and a music CD for use in developing quiet sacred space as you delve into your inner Reiki practice
  • Ongoing support in the 6 months following through email or phone sessions.

This is a certificate class. The certificate will be given after completion of pre-class assignments, the Reiki 3 class and the Grid creation workshop. Pre-requisite: Completion of Reiki Levels 1 & 2 no less than 3 months prior to the class date.

Cost: $385.00 (plus gst). A 50% deposit is required to hold a space in class. Class space is limited to ensure a personalized learning experience.
