"We cannot solve our problems with the same level of thinking that created them."
― Albert Einstein
What we think and how we think has a direct effect on our physical and mental well-being. Meditation develops our attention and allows us to create clarity of thought, opening the door to a shift in consciousness. It is a helpful practice for journeys into the psyche, where the problems of life can become unraveled and naturally transformed into beautiful strengths and gifts. Meditation helps us in the process of evolving spiritually and is a practical stalwart against life’s difficulties and mental turmoil.
Relaxation is a skill that transforms the physiology of the body. When practiced correctly, relaxation will reduce cortisol, the stress hormone, and restore the body’s natural healing processes. Four distinct forms of relaxation may be practiced: (1) relaxing your somatic nervous system (the voluntary nervous system), (2) relaxing your autonomic nervous system (your fight- or-flight response), (3) relaxing your central nervous system (your mind and thinking processes), and (4) relaxing your psyche (soul). Practicing these forms of relaxation puts one in a receptive and restorative state of being.
Transpersonal hypnotherapy is the practice of entering a wakeful dreamlike state in which we can work with the psyche efficiently and clearly. In this state of mind, all of the forces of the inner world can rally for the well-being of the mind, body, and soul. Hypnotherapy is a means of stepping past the defensive strategies of the ego and the mind so that long- standing problems that cause illness can be resolved and transformed in the light of awareness. “Transpersonal” refers to the understanding that there is an ally, a consciousness, greater than ourselves ready to support us for the higher good.
Guided meditation refers to the process of being guided to another state of consciousness, the psyche, and then working with the psyche to dispel delusion and restore health, balance, and beauty to the mind and body.
