Learning Not Living

Do you ever feel trapped in your past? Is there something that occurred that you just can’t seem to shake no matter how hard you try? Did something happen that no matter how many times you relive it, try to understand it, or try to think about it differently, remains? 

You may have heard the quote “Never be a prisoner of your past, it was just a lesson, not a life sentence” and thought, easier said than done. We all have times in our lives that we wish had been different. Whether it was something that happened to you, or something that you wish you hadn’t said or done. Sometimes memories of those hurtful times can repeat in your mind like a bad movie. You have tried as hard as you can to forget or forgive, just to have them pop up when you least expect it, filling you with sadness and anxiety.

How you react to those memories can ruin your day, your ability to sleep, your relationships and even your ability to feel positive about your future. 

At My Brain Shifts – Integrated Hypnosis, we know that we can provide you with tools and hypnosis techniques to empower you to acknowledge (Integrate? Understand?) those memories and move on to a happier, healthier you.

Testimonial for Hypnotherapy By One Of Our Clients

It’s been a couple months now since I worked with Shannon and I can truly say that her help has been life changing. I know that term can seem cheesy or like it’s being tossed around half-heartedly, but I really can’t express just how much she helped me!

After her first session, I felt more hope and change within me than I had from years of therapy, acupuncture, counseling, and other healing modalities. After the second session, I felt like my entire being and life had turned a page!

My marriage was better, I saw my husband (and myself) in this bright new light. We fought less. Discussions we had that would’ve usually turned into big, ugly fights, now remained calm and respectful. I was able, with the tools Shannon taught me, to remain neutral in events that would have sent me spiraling in the past. This helped me notice so much more about myself and the people I was interacting with which allowed so much more space for love and understanding. This felt HUGE to me. I also stopped feeling afraid all of the time. I had less migraines (and the ones I did have were very minor in comparison to the usual debilitating pain). I’ve slept better and had significantly less nightmares. I could go on and on for days telling you how much she’s helped me and improved my life with her hypnotherapy and the tools she’s taught me.

This has by far been the most helpful thing I’ve ever done for my mental and physical health, and I cannot recommend it enough! Worth the investment. So so worth the investment. I use the tools she taught me every single day.

I cannot thank you enough, Shannon!

Overcome Fear of Flying with Hypnosis

Did you know that 24,999,999 people in the United States, in addition to you, are afraid to fly? That’s right! You are NOT alone. You can be certain that someone else on the plane feels just like you do. It might even be the person sitting right next to you! But YOU DO NOT have to feel this way.

Hypnosis for Fear of Flying

With just three sessions, two before you fly and one after, you can completely change the way you see the experience. Imagine that when you fly you could enjoy yourself. Imagine that you could relax and read a book or watch a movie. Imagine looking out the window and seeing the clouds floating by and just being amazed at their beauty. That CAN be you!

How do I know this is possible? Because I was just like you. I was afraid to fly for many years. I remember clearly that as soon as I got on the plane, l would gaze down the aisle wondering how every single passenger was not aware that something terrible was about to happen. It was a physical response and took all I had to take steps down that aisle. How could they look so calm, I thought?! It was torture for me. I was afraid of every bump and movement once in my seat and held on with white knuckles to the armrests. I almost did not breathe until the plane touched down at our destination. I might even begin to worry about the trip home before I was out of the airport on the day we arrived. Sound familiar?

Now, after hypnotherapy sessions for my anxiety, I actually look forward to flying. I get on the plane anticipating those miraculous clouds just out my window. I can relax on the flight, and I know that my return flight home will be just as easy. I can focus on my family, my adventure, my business trip whatever it happens to be.

I know this works, and I can help you to feel this way too. Even after our first session, you will have multiple tools you can use immediately to help relieve your anxiety. Don’t let your fear of flying hold you back one more day.

Let me help you release your fear of flying! Schedule an appointment for your free anxiety consultation today!
