Hypnosis is a dance. It is a dance of energy – the energy of words and sound. The energy of words is reflected in the tone, rhythm or cadence, pitch, and timber of the Hypnotherapist’s voice as well as by the particular words themselves. The energy is in the essence of the words so it is vital, whenever communicating, to have your own energy in the highest possible frequency. This is an important consideration for whenever you are dealing with the healing arts as well as other interactions.

Words are symbols. Just as the letters that make up written words are symbols that, when combined in a certain manner, create symbols of meaning for written language; spoken words are symbols of meaning conveyed through sound vibration.

If you study great orators, you will learn how they convey their ideas, feelings, thoughts, and passion into their speeches. Close your eyes and listen; really hear how great speakers put words together in a cohesive and eloquent manner. It is a symphony – a dance.

The dance begins with an introduction. “Hello, how are you?” You are introducing yourself to someone and they hear you with their subconscious. Then, you begin the energetic exchange of words, thoughts, ideas, and feelings that will elegantly translate into potential changes in behaviour, help repair mistakes in thinking, help re-create and co-create beneficial lifestyle changes, elevate mood without destructive chemicals as well as many other benefits too numerous to elaborate upon.

The more eloquent you can be in your artful dance of healing words, the stronger, more immediate, and longer lasting will be the changes for you. Your exquisite use of sound and symbols will transport you into a parallel universe of subconscious desire to co-create advantageous changes that are truly valuable for you.

Keep in mind that, each time you work with this energy, you are also influencing your own subconscious. It behooves you to consistently and perpetually revise and renew your mental language. Constantly ask the question: “How can I make this communication better? How can I dance more expressively, articulately, or persuasively with the words I use?” The answers will flow up from your subconscious mind to positively influence your behaviour and your life. You will soon become fluent in the Art of Dancing with Words.

Animal Angels

Most people are unaware of the angelic nature of animals. There are so many stories of animal pets rescuing their owners that I could never tell them all in this little blog.

Animals often perform rescue service that is not widely recorded. I have a friend whose daughter suffered from a condition similar to fibromyalgia in which she in constant pain. When my friend’s daughter came to live with her, the pain subsided. My friend’s dog, Star, began to take on the symptoms of the daughter’s condition. Her beloved Star crossed over two years later and the daughter’s symptoms and pain returned in full force, but she had a brief reprieve. These types of stories are not often reported by the general media.

There are stories of animal attacks as well. Usually, the animals are strongly influenced by the negative thoughts or unbalanced emotions of the humans around them. Animals in and of themselves are balanced and harmonious as God and nature intended.

You can tell if you are calm and relaxed inside by how animals respond to you. If you have good intentions, animal behaviour around you will reflect that. If not, you will experience disruption in an animal’s behaviour. Animals are not naturally neurotic; they pick up the emotional energy from the humans handling them.

If you want to become more balanced, harmonious, and want to see that reflection in animals around you as if you were looking in a mirror, practice following your thoughts. Replace any negative, begrudging, spiteful, or hateful thoughts about your neighbors, job, cost of living, relationships, or the government with better thoughts. You may not accomplish this all at once. And, like me, you may still have thoughts that are unworthy of you. The point is – don’t give up. Keep replacing low-frequency thoughts for thoughts that help you to feel that life is good. Know that angels are always surrounding you – the ones you can see such as animals, and the ones you cannot see such as your Guardian Angels and Guides.

Remember to thank them daily and each time every good thing happens to you. You will soon notice more good things happening more often in your life. It quickly becomes fun to count your blessings because you soon have more than you can count!

Infinite Blessings from your Infinite Angels.
