And body always, often, sometimes rarely or never. 3:39 So go ahead and answer that question. As I just, I know, that Katie did a great job introducing me, but just to tell you a little bit more about myself, as she said, I’m Tracy, I’m a hypnotherapist. 3:50 I came to therapy through my own experience with it, used to be in social work and I worked with kids with mental and behavioral health issues And I always had my own time, anxiety issues and everything but it really got to a point where it was really hard for me to function and I tried so many other things, and hypnotherapy really helped me so much. I found it to be so empowering that I really wanted to do it so as you heard I studied at the best place to do it. That’s out of the medical school that really, you know, allows me to do with kind of a different level than most people. think of with hypnosis. And what I love about hypnosis and hypnotherapy is knowing how your mind works and using that information. To help people make their minds work for them, which I find to be so important, and so I specialize in anxiety and medical sport and really helping people to feel more in control of their mind and money. So hopefully by now, you’ve answered that poll. And, Katie, do you mind sharing those results? 4:50 Yes. So, I’m so sorry, Tracy. I try launching it, and for some reason it’s saying it’s not available, So I apologize, OK? 4:59 That’s OK, So We’ll just go ahead and continue. And hopefully you thought in your mind about what your answer to that might be. Usually, most people are not feeling in control their mind and body. In fact, I get a lot of people in my office, Or just in life. I always say, my mind, just, I don’t know what’s wrong with me! I’m crazy or something. So, hopefully this seminar webinar, it’s a really helps you to understand how your mind actually works, and then we’ll use that knowledge to make your mind work for you. 5:33 And we’ll wrap up before we get to the Q&A with some tools that you can use with this knowledge to make your mind maybe worked a little bit better for you. 5:43 So we’re gonna jump right into how does the mind actually work? And as I kinda mentioned, I like to think of hypnosis and hypnotherapy is understanding how the mind works and then using that information to take back control and realign your mind with your goals so that you can achieve that success you’re looking for. 6:04 Because your mind is really like a computer, it’s gonna follow what its program to follow, so it’s not calling any kind of logic or reasoning, unless that’s what it’s programmed to do. 6:15 So if you take them out, like, a robot that’s programmed to walk straight, might keep walking straight until Watson to a wall, and that’s going to keep trying to walk straight, right. It’s not the reason I reached a stopping point. I should stop, right, it’s gonna keep trying to walk straight. 6:31 And that’s how our minds work to, it doesn’t just adapt in the moment, it’s going to go through what it’s programmed to do. But the amazing thing about the mind is that there’s Neuroplasticity, which was a hot button, where it was actually voted one of the words the year, just a few years ago. But what it means is narrow meaning. Your mind plasticity meaning, change your mind does change by. The IRB can change it, we can reprogram it, so that’s what we do with hypnosis. 7:02 What we can also do, that is really access that mind, body connection, not just to influence the mind, but the entire body. 7:12 In fact, studies show, that bones here on average, six weeks faster with hypnosis just giving the mind that instruction of the bones coming together, really, we can influence our entire mind and body. So if you’re, I know you didn’t answer, but if you thought, in your mind, the answer to the poll, was that, You know, I really don’t often feel, Or It’s rarely, or never. Or maybe even in the, Sometimes, hopefully, by the end of this workshop. And starting to utilize maybe just 1 or 2 things you can take from it. We can bump you up to the next category and maybe even further to feel more, in control of your mind. 7:54 So there are three main parts of your mind that all kind of work together, the conscious subconscious and super conscious. So we’re gonna get into this a little bit. 8:04 So, excuse, my rudimentary drawing, but these are the main parts of the mind. Can you have the conscious mind? That’s the running monolog in our head all day long. Everything that we’re aware of as we go through our day. 8:18 Our analysis, our reasoning are wheeler militiamen, kind of grit our teeth and just try to move through and make something work, and our subconscious holds everything else. 8:30 So it holds others automatic systems of our body, like our circulation, UNE system, our digestion, etcetera. And it holds all of our emotions down there. All the monitoring creativity, your imagination, and all of our programming. And that’s really what we’re talking about here, but it holds everything else. So sometimes, people are really aware, and sometimes it takes a lot of people making you aware, because it’s living in subconscious. So maybe something triggers a memory to move from subconscious conscious mind. But every memory stored, and same with emotions, sometimes. We’re really aware. 9:10 OK, you know, when I’m feeling angry, and sometimes take someone else saying, You seem angry, because it’s in our subconscious, right? 9:17 So our super conscious is not in Australia, but imagine a little circle also within that subconscious. And that’s the super conscious, And that’s the problem solving intelligence. 9:30 Science called the zero point field, something within all of us that connects us, Religion will often call the soul, but it’s something with it. And all of that really holds all of our intelligence, and our love and, et cetera. 9:45 So you have a lot of negatives in the way this might come through as, like, kind of bad feelings. 9:51 If you have a lot of positive programming between the super conscious and your conscious mind, then you might get like feelings of intuition or gut feeling, kind of looking after yourself. 10:03 So we’re gonna kinda forget super conscious for now, because that’s really interesting. It’s not as important, and we might call upon it. But really, the conscious and the subconscious and the main parts of them are now separating the conscious and subconscious. 10:18 There’s this filter called the Critical Factor. 10:22 And it really acts as a filter, because we’d be overwhelmed if we had all of our programming, all our memories, all of our emotions, all the systems of our body, all the time that we were aware, right? So, it’s really amazing how our mind has this critical factor that separates the conscious and subconscious and it really is acting like a computer of lights programmed symbolically. So, let’s talk a little bit more about that critical factor. 10:50 It develops between the ages of seven nonetheless. And after this time, whenever that new thought comes in, the critical factor checks the subconscious mind to say, does this thought that’s coming in fit with our subconscious beliefs? 11:06 Is it true to us? and if it’s true, it latch it into our subconscious mind to reinforce what we already believe, to be true. 11:19 If it doesn’t fit with the sub conscious programming, it kicks it back to the conscious mind for more analysis. So that’s fine. You might find yourself turning an idea over, and over, and over again. 11:31 So I really like just say that the critical factors, kinda like the bouncer, a bright only letting in what it fits, right. 11:40 So the critical factor also works the other way, reflecting our programming that lives in our subconscious on to how we see the world of pie. 11:53 So it does this in three main ways, we project our beliefs onto people or situations. So if you ever are in a conversation with someone, and they keep misunderstanding, you, or you keep misunderstanding them, you’re probably projecting your beliefs onto the admin. They’re projecting their beliefs onto you. So, you’re not really in that same conversation or situation, right? 12:19 And in that way, we’re kind of allowing our beliefs to be reinforced. 12:25 That also happens with attraction. 12:28 So, over a decade or two ago, now, this point there was that big bucket movie and, you know, thinking about the secret. And that was that you could attract things into your life that you can manifest like I want a parking spot, I believe there’s going to be Frankenstein then there’s that parking spot. So, that takes this law of attraction a little further. But basically, what attraction says is that what we believe will happen is what we attract into our life. So if you think about, you decide on a car that you want to buy, and you start seeing that car everywhere, Your mind is looking at four, or being attracted to what it thinks you want it to look for, and that’s the same with people in situations in our life. What we tend to believe or matches, I believe, the type of people or situations we tend to see and get involved with, right? 13:20 And then the third way that our beliefs become, our reality is through pipelining emotion, so emotions are really contagious, and they really can create that environment that wearing. So if there’s a lot of nervousness in the air, you can feel that tension, right. If there’s a lot of excitement in the air, you can really feel that excitement to, and that creates an environment, right? So, our beliefs create our world through a projection attraction and pipeline. 13:48 So, you can see that as we change, those beliefs are also changing how we see and behave in the world. 14:00 So, let’s talk a little bit about where these beliefs come from. 14:05 And if any questions are coming on just, you know, Megan, write them down because we’re going to have Q&A time at the Atkins. 14:14 So where our beliefs come from, or what we hold to be true, as we said, are located in that subconscious mind. 14:21 So this is, in general, where they say the beliefs come from him, kind of where they go to, and we’ll get more into where blue stem from in just a second. 14:30 It’s usually an event that happens in our life, that causes us to create this belief there. 14:38 And then as we go through our life, that belly causes us to have certain emotions, thoughts, behaviors, and results in that order. And people don’t, always feel it in that order but again, emotions, you’re not always aware of. Sometimes, it’s in our subconscious mind and that creates those thoughts. 14:59 Which, as, we’re thinking, things, we take certain behaviors that create our results. Sarah so I’m gonna give you an example of this. 15:07 Of the most common phobia here in America, which may surprise you or may not, is public speaking. A lot of people have a phobia of Public Speaking. And that’s very common. 15:22 Although not always the event that leads to this might be that in kindergarten or preschool were never green. Day, you’re called to the front of the room, and they say, Right, Cat on the board and write it K, a T and everybody in the class laps. And in that moment, that belief is formed in front of groups, I look stupid. 15:45 I just don’t do well in front of groups. 15:49 So now, as he goes to rebel, your life, when that belief, emotions are created that, when you’re in situations where you might have to speak in front of a group. Maybe you get nervous. 16:07 Why? Maybe you get anxiety? 16:11 We’re sad or scared, Maybe year develops, right? And thoughts come out of this, too. I can’t do that. 16:21 That you usually reinforce that, right? 16:24 And behaviors can manage to, maybe you’re, mine does go blank, because that’s what you think’s gonna happen. Right? Maybe your palms get sweaty, and maybe your mouth goes stride. 16:35 So maybe, as a result, you avoid write those public speaking engagements. 16:43 But we can also look at this results model to also influenced it anywhere along the way. Because, you know, people will just try to say, OK, I’m just gonna grit my teeth and move to this. Or I tried to change the behavior. Which do we, go back to thoughts, I’d like to a positive affirmations, or when the clock comes and maybe try to reverse it. So the behaviors easier, Right? We can step into different emotions that hopefully leads us to feeling better thoughts. Right? When we’re coming from a happier place, which leads to those behaviors more easily. 17:12 Going back to those beliefs and reprogramming those beliefs can help town or event, maybe with hypnosis and the regression or chambers. So going back to the event but this results model to really help us to see how those beliefs really shape our world, right? 17:30 So, after that critical factor forms, which we said happens between the ages of 7 and 11, that’s when those new thoughts come in. 17:38 Let’s crossing into the subconscious mind, as a belief, is only happening if it matches what we already hold to blue, chip. 17:48 So anything that we believe is true about people in the world, about ourselves, about the actual world around us, We believe that it’s true, and there’s only five ways to bypass that critical impact, or to change those ideas, those moments, once that critical factor forms. 18:10 So, think about, if you can guess, some of those ways. 18:15 And then see if you might be ready. 18:18 The first, right, and the most popular way, that most people think it was authority figures, right? 18:22 We are our parents, our teachers, our coaches, the celebrity’s are politicians. 18:29 You know, people that are influencers, these days, those authorities, figures, really can influence and cross. 18:37 That’s critical factor to influence our subconscious programming. 18:41 Second one is very common, as well, to thank the peer groups, right. 18:45 We think about peer pressure being so significant, yeah. It’s amazing. how much peer pressure can get you to change your beliefs as you’re around those peer groups. Right. 18:57 The third way is emotional situations, So if you’re thinking about, someone can really believe one thing and really feel truly about something one way, and then, maybe, they go through, I’m a big, long illness. 19:11 Were death, or an accident, or maybe something really successful that, you know, they didn’t think was going to happen something sudden and emotional. You might really change their beliefs really, surprisingly and severely. You see that often, write those emotional situations, allow that critical factor in that program and to change. 19:31 The worst way is repetition. 19:34 So if you hear something enough, you believe it’s chair. We often think about this with negatives, right? If somebody calls you stupid enough, you believe you’re stupid. But we can also use that with a positive when you said that a lot with positive affirmations, right? If you repeat that positive to yourself, And that you believe it’s true, as well. 19:53 And then that fair to I is altered state. 19:56 So whether you use the State of hypnosis for meditation, or, a lot of times, will think of this also with state of drugs, or alcohol. 20:04 Right in that altered state, people sometimes will do, or say, things can’t believe they’ve done, right? 20:11 So these are the five ways that we can access our programming once that critical factor forms. 20:20 So like I said, I think this is all really interesting information to understand how our mind works. 20:27 And then we can use this information to make the mind to work for us, right? 20:33 So we’re gonna go through some tools now, using all that information I just gave me. Now, of course, there’s a lot more to the mind, and there’s a lot more to hypnosis. 20:46 But these are kind of the basics. I’m like, I said, This is lifting us one-on-one, and I really wanna give you guys some tools that you can use using misinformation. 20:55 So the first one is a grounding exercise. And what our grounding exercise does is takes you out of the emotions and grounds you in reality in the present. 21:06 So a lot of times will take you out of your mind and put you into your body. 21:11 Right? 21:12 Because if you just go around and around in your mind, you’re probably in that conscious mind, right? 21:17 So even if you wanted to move into the subconscious, you need to be grounded. 21:23 But honestly, also, as we talked about, emotions are not logical. So a lot of times, people will try to access tools, or reason through things when they’re in that emotional state, and you’re really not going to be able to write. So grounding allows you to be in the press. And really, my favorite way is going through the five senses. But you can really do it using any question that’s object that subject. And, so, there’s nothing you have to analyze, and reason why. 21:52 So, let’s take a moment now, and ground ourselves down so that you can see an example of how to do this. 22:00 So, looking around you, what are some things you see right now? 22:06 Maybe noticing your device or computer? 22:10 Maybe you see a lamp or light in the room maybe of a window and we’re looking outside, maybe notice some things around. Let me see. 22:22 Yeah, Noticing some things you hear. 22:25 My voice will be a fan or heater going, AWL, maybe traffic outside or people moving around your home. 22:35 What do you hear? 22:40 Can maybe leather you smiling, ring, maybe just the fragile? 22:46 Maybe if you have some food or drinking fountain means, smile, maybe I’m wrong. 22:54 Thing to smell. Right? Wow. 22:58 OK. 23:03 And then moving into takes. What do you taste right now in your mouth? 23:10 Maybe your saliva. 23:12 It kills and what I’m trying. 23:16 Maybe you testa men were cheering for you just Numa where something to paste, right? 23:28 Yeah. 23:32 And now moving into touch, so make: What does it feel like to feel your clothes on your body, or to feel your legs folded in the chair where your feet on the ground? 23:46 What are your hands? Touching. 23:51 Yeah. 23:54 In a touch sentence. 23:56 Good and now, notice how you feel. 23:57 Do you feel more grounded, more stable, more present in the moment? This might be a good tool to use. When you notice you’re in your head and you want to get into life. You want to engage more. 24:10 So, maybe keep this in your toolbox. 24:13 The next one is using positive affirmations as we talked him out. 24:18 Positive affirmations or any kind of repetition is really a good way to get past that to change that some conscious programmer. 24:28 So, the best way to do this, because I’ve seen people do all kinds of crazy affirmations, are following needs, three main guidelines, OK? You want to use first person I statements. 24:41 Claim on those affirmations. 24:44 Say, hi, I am calm, I feel happy. 24:49 I am successful whatever it is. Use those I statements, right? Don’t use use statements if you need a little bit of distance. 24:58 You can use your name to you now, Tracy is confident. 25:03 But really stepping into those I statements is the best way to do that. 25:07 Using present tense language, and so your mind has no sense of time. So, if you’ve ever had a really vivid dream, sometimes didn’t have this conversation and it was just to dream because it was so they can the mind has no sense of time. So, if you say, I will, it could happen tomorrow. It could happen next week. It could happen in 20 years, right? So, use the present tense languages I Am, I have I, whatever not lie well, if it’s really about a future goal and you have to put a date on it and have a physical date. 25:43 You know, saying on or before May 23rd, I achieve that promotion, or I am promoted to blah blah blah blah blah And As you’re creating this, thinking about what picture you’re creating. So, a lot of times as a society, we tend to speak in negative. I asked people, all 10, What is your goal? And say, I don’t want this, and I don’t want to do that, and I don’t want to do this. And I said, well, what do you love unsaid? And it takes a long time to figure out what do I want instead, right? So, thinking about that image that you create. So, if you say, I don’t wanna worry. 26:21 That image is usually about wearing, So maybe saying it’s, I assume the best, where my thoughts are positive. Right? 26:30 Maybe my thoughts are positive in present tense because a lot of future thoughts, right. Can be worrisome past, that can be depressing. 26:38 So, maybe present tense thoughts. 26:41 So, thinking about that picture that you’re creating and saying what you do, what. 26:47 Now, if you’re using positive affirmations, you can repeat them to yourself maybe 3 to 5 times. Then. you can post them somewhere that your eyes can see and read over, you can write them. That may be like when you were younger. 27:00 If you do now, you’re young. Maybe write a spelling word over and over again until you remember it, right, because writing is a really good access into the subconscious. So writing those positive affirmations, or even that reversals and any maintenance you’re feeling can really influence what you want. If you can try to make it that direct reversals. So you’re really feeling anxious in that moment. Maybe a direct reversal for you is calm. 27:29 Maybe it’s feeling free. 27:32 Maybe it’s feeling No. I’m in control of my emotions. Right? A lot of people reach for control outside themselves. So we can’t do that. 27:42 But reaching for control within yourself, like we’re doing here. 27:46 That’s OK, too. So whether you’re using need as repetition or even in the moment, because, remember, what you focus on is what you get. So it’s OK to observe things in your body. 27:58 But you usually want to step into his reversals once. You notice them so if I’m focusing a lot, I have such a stomach ache. Oh my gosh. My stomach hurts so much. Oh, my stomach really hurts, my mind keeps hearing. She loves her stomach to her. 28:13 OK, she wants her stomach to hurt, right, I’m repeating that programming to myself. 28:18 So, once I notice my stomach hurts, I can then step into maybe that positive affirmation that I statement of, that from first law. 28:28 My stomach feels comfortable or saddle. 28:32 We’re maybe imagining myself my stomach feeling calm. 28:38 So, whether you use these positive affirmations in the moment, we’re with repetition. That is a really good way. 28:47 Chat gives that new programming to your subconscious mind. 28:55 So the next one is anchoring and anchoring is one of my favorite little tricks about the mind. 29:01 So anchoring is the idea of triggering an emotion, intentionally, one of the five senses and move the whole dom, this, whether or not so. A lot of times, real estate agents will be cookies when they’re trying to sell home. So, when you walk into the open house or the showing you, smell that home banking think this really smells like home and you don’t realize it Triggers. Maybe that feeling of home or maybe smell a favorite dish or perfume of a loved one. And it takes you back to that feeling of being with them. 29:37 Maybe you hear song on the radio, and you remember being in the car dancing with your friends to it, right? So we can use this to trigger things intentionally, and I like to use touch a lot, right, Because it’s something more in control them. So maybe even just touching two fingers together, which a lot of people purchase new dress, or just kind of just giving that pressure. But even if your hands are in your lap, you can push down on your side, whatever. 30:05 So we have a few moments. 30:08 We’ll go through a little quicker than maybe you would do it on your own, but if you want to, just center yourself and close your eyes and maybe think of a time when you really bell calm and confident, or maybe imagining what it could feel like to really feel. 30:30 And so just settle yourself down and step into that calm competence now or step into that memory of competence. 30:40 Close your eyes. See what you saw. Your chew heard, feel that good feeling and then when you’re feeling it, strongly want you to go ahead and press down wherever you decide. 30:50 And so whether it’s two fingers together, pressing your thumb into, you know, your leg or your thigh or wherever it is, just go ahead and press down on that pressure. 30:58 As you open your mouth and breathe that good feeling through your body, really make it strong, breathe it in deep as you hold, that pressure, maybe three or so breaths. 31:13 Then you can go ahead and release that pressure and release that memory. 31:17 Usually, you want to reinforce it one time, so go ahead and bring that feeling back, that memory or feeling of calm confidence back, be there again, and then when they’re feeling that vertical and press down again on that feeling to reinforce it, breathe it all through your mind and body. 31:39 Maybe 3 to 5 breaths again, and like I said, I’m rushing into a little more, but just to give you an idea of what to do, then step out of that memory release, that pressure. And now when after you go ahead and press down on that pressure point again, that feeling should come right back to you. 31:57 Now attach triggers, a can aid if it’s not used. So if you’d like this, use it often where you can always implanted into something firmer. I often will also do this. We’ll test anxiety maybe holding a pencil. Right. So stepping into, you know, a time when maybe felt really confident doing a test and hold that pencil antigens, now, as you hold that that’s right back to you. 32:23 Yes. 32:25 So, moving forward, that more diaphragmatic breathing. 32:30 So, there’s all kinds of different breathing techniques and they’re all wonderful. And I know a lot of people are like, breathing is so boring, or it’s so hard, or I try to breed that I instantly start breathing faster. And that might happen. Right, because you’re putting Awareness on it. So now, all of a sudden, it may speed up, but give yourself a sappy that will slow down. 32:52 But also, what I like Diaphragmatic, breathing specifically tells your body safe to say what it looks like was breathing deeply in through your nose. 33:06 Pausing for a beat or two, so kinda holding your breath for a moment at the top. 33:12 Exhaling slowly, out your mouth, like you’re blowing out a candle but slowly. 33:22 Sometimes, I even like to pause for a moment at the bottom for I do that deep inhale again. But what’s important is really that pause for a minute or two at the top. And then that slow exhale. 33:35 And it can become slower and slower with each subsequent breath. But what that does is that pause at the top of Nebraska allows those little southern side of your lungs to slowly in light, which tells your body that you’re not running away from, or fighting danger. So it’s safe to relax. So I personally find that I specialize in working with people with anxiety. That that pause for me, really helps people to feel that relaxation, MIT, nearly saddling. So maybe give that a try and let me know how it works for you. 34:10 Take a deep breath in through your nose. 34:14 Pause and exhale slowly. 34:20 Yeah. 34:22 So hopefully you felt some good relaxation from that. 34:28 So moving forward, emotional regulation, Now, I teach Hold workshops that are many average, just an emotion regulation. So you can do a lot more research on this, but I really feel like emotional regulation is what people are looking for, when they’re looking for, I need to feeling ensure. All right. So there’s so many different methods, but I really liked the structure of the acronym. Buhler, which is out of the positive side. There’s books, and ted Talks, and all kinds of things on it. But it’s really simple so that they can teach it all the way from kindergarten up to the workplace. 35:05 And when you’re feeling that emotional feeling, maybe you did your grounding, your backing, your body, and now you’re like, I don’t know what to do now. Right. 35:14 So maybe using Ruler has that structure. 35:18 Just feel the feeling in a safe way, because you have to feel it to heal it. 35:25 And a lot of people will ignore their feelings, kinda suppress it, keep themselves busy, and then in the moments of calm, it will come out or it will come out in different ways, right? Maybe it comes out in texts, maybe comes out in, D behaviors, maybe comes at a physical manifestation, like stomach aches, headaches, right, your body is going to find a way to deliver its message. 35:50 So, Emotional Regulation gives us a structure, or gives us that structure. 35:56 Chiu acknowledge and feel that feeling in what feels like the Safeway, right? Because we don’t want to dip into it and … to stay in it But we also don’t want to ignore it, right? So what is the R is bracket tags, so what are you recognizing people like to jump right to labeling? Oh, this is anxiety right now. What do you recognizing? Oh, I feel my heart racing feel shallower. Breathing right, I feel myself sweating. 36:24 I feel my thoughts are racing. What are you recognizing symptoms? 36:29 You understanding, a lot of people jump to attaching, right? Oh, this must mean I’m crazy or I’m a bad sleeper or I just can’t do that thing right. Instead. 36:39 We want to give ourselves understanding, Oh, no way anyone could feel like it’s OK to feel this way. It’s kind of like the opposite of the gas lighting yourself, which is why we often do, and that really creates micro motions on my gasoline ourselves, right? Now, we’re not only feeling the feeling which feels uncomfortable, but now we’re showing all these other feelings about having a feeling. It’s made things so much more complicated. So, by emotionally regulating, we just keep with the one, so we recognize the feeling in our body, gives ourselves that, It’s OK to feel this way. It’s OK to be. It’s OK to feel, you know, a headache, it’s OK to have my thoughts racing. And then, you go to the label. 37:23 I’m anxious, I’m scared, I’m excited. 37:28 I’m whatever that might be. 37:31 So, you give yourself and understand it’s safe, then you label it, OK? So, we’re already making that connection in our mind, right? When I feel this feeling, it’s OK to feel that it’s safe, it’s normal, it’s this thing. It’s not us, right? We’re not attaching it. 37:46 Yes, it’s anxiety, it’s fear. 37:49 It’s sadness, alright? And then, we need to get out. We’ll need to express it. So, this is, I was within the social contract, the environment that we’re in. Right. So, you know, maybe you can text it to a friend. 38:02 Maybe you can say it aloud. Maybe you have the means to discuss what you’re feeling. You need to get it out in that moment, even putting it together for years. 38:11 I’m, my heart is racing. My mouth is going dry. That’s understandable. You know, I’m about to walk into a meeting, and I’ve never been to this group. Anyone would feel this way. You know, their first time going into a meeting with new people? Of course! I’m feeling that way, right? That’s an understanding. 38:30 I’m feeling anticipation anxiety, right? Label it, so maybe I text different. Oh, I’m really feeling anticipation anxiety. Because I’m about to walk into this meeting room, you just say it in my head, right? And then stepping into that reversal. So maybe going back to that positive affirmation or maybe just imagining it into your head. You can also use that last ours, the final regularly, so a lot of people will go right to, Oh, I’m feeling anxious. I’m gonna go for a run, right, If that’s your thing. So just add that our URL, and then say, Oh, yes, Mrs. Anxiety. I’m gonna go for that. Read, right. 39:04 So try that, and see how that works for you. 39:09 So, I want to make sure we leave time for questions, but I think we’re doing OK on time. So we’re gonna go through one more tool, and then we’ll do a little bit of a wrap up, and then we’ll move into questions, And we should have plenty of time for your Q&A. 39:22 You are doing, oh sorry Jason, you’re doing great. I got 10 minutes before, it’s 750. 39:29 Wonderful, great, then we can talk a little bit more about hypnosis inhibitive therapy. Tim. 39:35 Sam, This last tool that I have for you guys, is using symbolism. So, if you’re not a word person and coming up with the words, it’s really hard for you, You can use these common symbols. So a stop sign is a really common symbol for us. Money driven, a million times, or you’re not a driver, it’s still something we’re taught and we see on the road, but not just the road and movies and TV in books as we go through our lives. So it’s a strong symbol. So maybe, there’s that repetitive, negative, that you ruminate that. You just can’t stop thinking this right? 40:10 Make sure first you’ve addressed, and maybe you’ve emotionally regulate a reverse said, or acknowledged it, right? But it keeps coming up. 40:19 Maybe using a symbol, like seeing that stop sign. 40:22 Can you really see that stop sign in your head and reverse it. 40:26 I remember this is also reprogramming your mind. 40:29 Now, you’re telling your mind, you’re retraining it when this stock comes in, nope, that’s fine. I don’t want to see it. 40:36 Instead, I want you to think this thought instead, comes and see the stop sign, sap into that reversal, right? 40:43 You’re retraining your mind So again, all of these tools, as many other tools, I have pages and pages. But let’s start with a few here today. 40:53 These all kind of go off of the information I told you earlier about the mind and using that information to feel more in control of your body, and to your mind. 41:05 So maybe you, you have this PowerPoint, I know that was in the materials, and Katie talked about how to access that. 41:13 So, maybe pick one to try this week, Given a shot, let me know how it works and how this does for you. 41:22 And since we have a little bit more time, I’m not sure if that second poll is going to work. So that’s why I didn’t bring it up earlier. But if so, let’s put out that second poll. And if not I don’t want you to think of a question which is have you ever been hypnotized before? 41:36 And then either, yes in an entertainment setting, yes, for hypnotherapy. 41:41 Yes, I’ve done self hypnosis. 41:43 No never are some kind of combination of those or other Katie did our poll question work this time. 41:53 I don’t know what’s going on, but we’re having a lot of technical difficulties with goto Webinar and I think that the host is is watching and having issues. 42:04 OK, well, I apologize guys, but hopefully you’re still seeing me and you’re getting the, the no education and the tools, which is really the poll is just actually keep you engaged. So, hopefully you’re still enjoying, thinking about have you ever been hypnotized? So many people have so many questions about hypnosis and hypnotherapy so as I kinda sad hypnosis and hypnotherapy is knowing how the mind works then using that information and make their mind work for them? So if we think about these parts of the mind, right? 42:35 All we’re doing in hypnosis is we’re opening the critical factor in order to access that subconscious and we’re either adding new suggestions or reprogramming into the subconscious mind. 42:50 We’re accessing the programming that’s already in the subconscious mind in order to change it. 42:57 So there’s two main types of hypnosis There: suggestion therapy, which is adding that new programming, and there’s analytical, which is looking at the programming that already exist there. 43:11 And then you’re either accessing it in order to take away its need to be there at all, like maybe through a trauma reversal. Or maybe, so that we can know better what we wanna reverse. Because a lot of the suggestions that we do are our assumptions, right? About what we wanna reverse, but can actually ask the subconscious mind directly. 43:31 And it gives us that answer, We now know directly went to reverse. 43:35 So, lot of people have all these myths and ideas about what hypnosis and hypnotherapy isn’t isn’t. But this is all it is. And all hypnosis is also self hypnosis is not. I can’t make you go into Hypnosis I’m your guide, I’m leading you into Hypnosis. 43:53 So, whether it’s stage, hypnosis, or hypnosis for therapeutic purposes, everyone, and anyone has the ability to go into trance and Dante hypnosis and something we naturally do every day. So, when you’re driving down a street away, you’ve done a million times before and no. 44:13 You zone and all of a sudden you’re at your destination. 44:16 They call that highway hypnosis and the reason is because it feels a lot like hypnosis it is that same state, right. But you’re not asleep. You’re not unconscious if the deer was in your way or, you know, there was a car that you asked me slam on the brakes. You come back to yourself. So there’s a lot of myths out there that you can get stuck in hypnosis. Or that the hypnotherapist can control you and all these things. And that’s just not true. It’s that same state, your bullying control, it just in that state. Your conscious mind is saying, there’s nothing important for me to filter or pay attention to here. I can relax and take a break and I can let that subconscious mind being shot, right? That critical factor opens and the subconscious is in charge, right, and that subconscious is our permanent mind, is that analysis. 45:08 Analyzing, it’s not reasoning, it’s not applying logic, it’s just following our programming, it’s just doing that computer. 45:16 So, in that state, we can add that new program where it can see what programming. 45:22 So, that’s a little bit more about hypnosis and hypnotherapy. So I know we’re about 14 minutes left, so I’m gonna go ahead and stop sharing on my information is on this last slide. If you don’t either get access to ask your question in that these last few minutes, you know, as I said, it’s also, or, as Katie said, in the beginning, will have a whole week. But also feel free to call me, Text me, e-mail me, I am very open and willing to Talk to you and answer your questions in private if you prefer that, were more you just didn’t get a chance today. 46:00 Tracy, thank you so, so much.
