Hypnosis is just one of many techniques available to us to help us change our beliefs. It is our beliefs after all that keep us stuck in a particular behavior pattern. It is like the old saying goes, if you think you can’t you can’t. It is from this place of can’t that we look to shift our beliefs into you guessed it, ‘I think I can, I think I can’. But let’s take that one step further to ‘I believe I can’. We need to first believe change is possible. We can set all the intentions in the world, but if we don’t believe in the outcome, change cannot happen.
All hypnosis is really self-hypnosis, you have to willingly participate in these sessions at least on some level. You are looking for a change, looking to create some new strengths for instance. Sometimes people think that hypnosis is about losing control of their mind and body, and turning their power over to someone else. Mostly because a lot of movies out there depict this very thing. In reality, the body responds to commands from the mind. Everything our body does it does because our mind tells it to do it. Think about it, your mind has conditioned your body to react. Every time you heard a loud unexpected noise, your body reacts. If you get near a hot stove or worse yet touch it, you jerk back your hand or arm because of the pain. You don’t actually hear your mind telling your body to do these things, because it is coming from a subconscious level.
So, if we can respond to programming from the self-conscious mind to protect ourselves, we can also respond to the subconscious mind to break a pattern of belief and create a new one that benefits us. Working with the planet energies and the strengths aligned to each one is a great way to create these new belief systems and as a result a new healthier behavior.
With the energy of Aquarius, we learn that we are all connected. We are stronger when we are a part of something bigger, that is in some way benefiting mankind. We don’t lose our individuality but we learn how to remain an individual within a larger group. You all have heard the song,’ The Age of Aquarius’. Maybe you have only heard that line, but it conjures up an image of people, singing together in peace and harmony. It speaks of freedom and helping all mankind.
Aquarius is the 11th house in the zodiac. After you achieve the success of the 10th house, you naturally want to find a way to use your success to help others. The energy of this house is where we find those fairy godfathers/mothers, mentors, and friend groups. I like to call this finding your tribe. A place where your uniqueness is welcomed and cherished.
Aquarian energy is connecting with our mind and the minds of others. This is the energy of an Einstein, eclectic, innovative, inventive, a person who finds a creative solution for any problem. This sign rules electricity, the internet, and the things we use to connect with others. If you are looking to get an invention off the ground, find an Aquarius to help you, or bet yet tap into your own Aquarian energy.
The planet rulers of Aquarius are Saturn (traditional) and Uranus (present day). Uranus was first spotted in the late 17th century but not officially recognized until British Astronomer William Herschel ‘found’ it in 1781. It was then named after the Greek God of the sky. Uranus is the planet of electricity, surprises and sudden changes. If you like change you resonate with the planet Uranus, if you don’t, well it’s as good of time as any to get a little more comfortable with being flexible.
Uranus represents freedom, surprises, and inventiveness. Think about the airwaves, electricity, even our brainwaves, they all move along a current and deliver a result. Sometimes it works as expected and sometimes the messages get crossed or confused and a different output is experienced. That surprise is the planet Uranus. The changes can be quick and sudden, and definitely unexpected. But at the end of the day the course correction was needed and these changes are meant to get you path on your path.
Let’s tap in together to the Aquarian energy now and learn how to connect to others and express ourselves freely and openly. The following is an audio file you can listen to multiple times or just once. You should listen without distraction, in a quiet place, with your phone on silent. This helps to reduce the distractions from the conscious mind and allows you to more easily connect to the subconscious mind. Connect to the session here.
