Enhance your emotional health

You already know that your mental health and happiness can be greatly improved through techniques like meditation, conscious relaxation, and hypnosis. Another very powerful discipline for enhancing mental well-being is Qigong, a Chinese system of techniques, thousands of years old, aimed at cultivating Chi, the fundamental life force in all of us. Qigong includes breathing exercises, meditation, visualization, slow movements, and postural work. Read more about it in this article I found.

So you're losing weight with hypnosis...

...which is great! You've cut junk food out of your diet completely, you eat sensible portions of food, and you don't snack in between meals. But how do you get to your goal weight faster, and make the weight loss process even easier on yourself? Read this article that I found online for recommendations on the proper consumption of carbohydrates.

Pay particular attention to the last part of the article, which gives you the take-home message:

• Eat smaller, more frequent meals.

• Reduce your portion size of carbohydrate without eliminating it.

• Ensure all meals contain portions of carbohydrate, protein, fat and fibre.

• Slow the passage of glucose into the bloodstream by emphasising low-density and low GI carbohydrates.

Following these tips will speed you along toward your goal weight, while hypnosis eliminates those cravings you once had, and severs your emotional dependence on food.

Article about Moodstreams Hypnosis in local paper

A short news article about Moodstreams' local client-based hypnosis practice was published in the Maynard Beacon-Villager a couple of days ago. It's about how I dispel the lingering myths about hypnosis to make my clients feel at ease, and how I make my sessions as casual and natural as possible to emphasize the fact that hypnosis is indeed a natural state of mind that we all experience as a part of daily life.

Rejuvenating Rain

Meditation Getaways - Rejuvenating Rain -

We take a walk on a rainy day, from an open hillside down to a dense forest of majestic trees. The rain cleanses us of all stress and anxiety, and fills us with positivity. The rain becomes stronger as the meditation progresses, but just before it gets too strong, we escape into the sanctity of the forest, shielded from the elements by the dense canopy. The storm eventually clears, and the sun pokes through the spaces in the canopy, treating us to a spectacular light show.

This guided meditation features the soundtrack "Spring Rainstorm" as a background sound.
