From time to time, I like to circle back to some of the basics of hypnosis. For many who have joined this newsletter/blog the past few months, you may or may not really know much about hypnosis.
Many of you are familiar with the story of the Wizard of Oz and the story of Dorothy and her dog, Toto. They made the perilous journey along the Yellow Brick Road with their companions the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Woodsman and the Scarecrow. The unlikely group went through many exciting adventures and frightening experiences in order to reach the Land of Oz where the Wizard lived. They BELIEVED that he – and only he – could grand their wishes.
The Scarecrow wanted brains. The Tin Woodsman wanted a heart. The Lion wanted courage.
Of course, the three of them already had those things; they just didn’t BELIEVE they did.
After stuffing the Scarecrow’s head with a mixture of needles, pins and bran, the Wizard of Oz declared, “I have given you brains. Hereafter you will be a great man.” The Scarecrow BELIEVED the Wizard, and he felt very wise indeed.
The Wizard took a silk heart filled with sawdust and placed it in the Tin Woodsman’s breast. The Wizard said, “Now, you have a heart any man would be proud of.” The Tin Woodsman BELIEVED the Wizard, and he felt tender and loving.
The Lion drank a special potion which, according to the Wizard, was courage. “Drink this,” said the Wizard, “and you will be filled with courage.” The Lion, BELIEVING the Wizard, drank the potion, and he feared nothing.
Never mind that the Wizard of Oz turned out to be an ordinary man; he was extraordinary in that he had the capacity to engender BELIEF, to change the course of people’s lives by changing their BELIEFS about themselves.
During the course of the story, the three had many occasions to demonstrate their newly discovered brains, heart and courage as they faced the dangerous task of getting Dorothy and Toto back to Kansas. The Wizard had told them they could, and they BELIEVED him.
Everyone knows that the Wizard is powerful and capable of making dreams come true. But did you know that you have your own resident Wizard, constantly and unerringly carrying out your commands? Whatever is happening in your life right now is undoubtedly a result of the orders your Wizard receives and carries out.
Is there something about yourself that you want to change or improve? I am absolutely convinced that you can make that change or improvement with hypnosis.
Through hypnosis you can change your BELIEFS and the ‘orders’ you have been giving your magical Wizard within. Hypnosis is your Yellow Brick Road. I invite you to travel it to a happier, healthier, more productive life.
Until next time,
