For me, summer holidays are characterized by my efforts at keeping my mind clean.
The leisure time allows me the chance to sit and do hypnosis on myself.
Sometimes for hours – literally.
The result is indescribable.
The words calm, peaceful, loving and open do not come close to the bliss available when clearing negative thoughts and interpretations out of my mind.
The summer is over and September has always been my month of greatest challenge.
Not because I have a lot of work to do. I don’t mind working. I love my work at the college. Doesn’t often really feel like work. I have yet to have to work as hard as I did as a lawyer.
I didn’t love that work. Maybe that’s the key. But we can talk about that another time.
September is hard because my daily practice of mind house keeping is much harder to keep up with. When I take time, multiple times each day, to clean out the negative and refocus on the truth, life goes by with very little anger, guilt and resentment. My reactions are measured and my heart beats light. I don’t take things personally. I let go of the trivial. And most experiences are just that. And when the big things happen – when the proverbial hits the proverbial – I am centered and peaceful. And I can hold that as I move through what is before me.
The house is clean so it doesn’t matter if an uninvited guest comes by.
It isn’t that my house is better equipped for uninvited guests. It is that I have taken the time to clean it. So being caught off guard is not a problem.
I learned about the benefits of hypnosis by being a client in a chair. I learned about my mind and my happiness by practicing self hypnosis.
I consider the work I do on my own mind to be an on-going experiment. Care to join me? We have a class starting this week.
The course is simple: learn to go into trance and recognize the truth about yourself. The lessons you learn are not as surprising as the effect you will see in yourself. Like the kitchen and the bathroom, your life improves when you make a point of cleaning your mind.
