It is where an inflatable silicone device is placed around the top portion of the stomach. The placement of the band creates a small pouch. This pouch holds around half a cup of food. (The typical stomach holds about 6 cups of food.) This pouch fills with food quickly, and the band slows the passage of food from the pouch to the lower part of the stomach. As the upper part of the stomach registers to the brain as full, it sends a message and the brain interprets that the entire stomach is full. This helps the person to be hungry less often, feel full more quickly and for a longer period of time, eat smaller portions, and consequently lose weight over time. Although this surgery is safer and less invasive than other similar types of surgery such as stomach stapling, it is still not without its risks. The high costs involved are a barrier to many people. Hypnotherapy can remove these barriers by offering an alternative.
Gastric band HypnosisInstead of actually going through with this surgery, a clinical hypnotherapist can instead convince your subconscious mind that you have undergone this procedure. They can guide you into a trance and talk you through the procedure as if it is actually happening. On a conscious level you will be aware that you have received hypnotherapy, but on a subconscious level you will believe you have actually received surgery. This is important as the subconscious mind is responsible for your automatic habits. If it believes that you are no longer able to eat as much, then it will act accordingly.
It isn’t a problem that the conscious part of the mind is aware that you haven’t undergone surgery – the two can coexist just fine with different beliefs. So a person can, on a conscious level, know very well that they have received hypnotherapy, but their subconscious mind can fully believe it has undergone a medical procedure, and behave accordingly.
Gastric band hypnotherapy can be done at a much lower cost than surgery, and carries virtually no risk. The body remains the same, it’s just that the subconscious mind, the part responsible for automatic urges and habits, believes and acts like actual surgery has been done. Once you are eating less, the knock on effects will be weight loss over time. So if you are thinking about having the surgery, or you are just interested in losing weight, then perhaps the hypnosis gastric band procedure is for you.

I can’t even put into words how much better I feel.
I used to be tired even after getting a full nights rest. Back pain, neck pain, chronic fatigue, severe digestive issues. You name it. I’ve tried more diets than you can think of and no matter what exercise regime I embarked on my health wouldn’t get better. Once I made changes to my daily habits I started seeing some progress. This has been a hard journey but I’m happy I stuck with it.
I offer assessments and will give you insights into why certain symptoms occur, what changes we can implement to change them and where you should focus your attention on your personal healing journey. You will learn how to nourish your body and take control of your health.
This is my mother who has lost over -50lbs. Looking back at the before picture my mother could not believe how much weight she had gained over the years. She had trouble walking for long periods of time, she had back aches, headaches, adrenal fatigue and much more. To get these results we started with small daily changes that we could incorporate. We started by changing her breakfast and adding a 15-minute workout every day. She often switched from walking to workout videos on YouTube. Little by little we made changes and we kept her weekends a little more relaxed as far as diet and exercise. It’s not about what you do occasionally, it’s about what you do consistently.
When you are trying to get your weight down and get your health back its about more than just changing your diet. If it was only about the diet we would all be skinny and healthy. It’s about mind, body and spirit. We worked on changing her thoughts and beliefs about herself and incorporated daily meditation. For my mother, her daily meditation consisted of having her morning tea while she listened to the birds. This can look different for everyone.
What makes me the happiest if knowing that she is making her health her first priority. I want her to be around for as long as possible and it fills my heart knowing she is happy from the inside out.
I love working with people and seeing how they can drastically change their habits so that they can live their best life.
I want to share with you a simple hypnosis technique I use for my children when they struggle to go to sleep. There was a time when I remember that my daughter refused to fall asleep because of a bad dream she had the night before. I reminded her that bad dreams were not real and how they can't hurt her body but that she could use a special part of her imagination to help her.
Here is the hypnosis technique I used:
Talk to your child softly, calmly and slowly and tell your child to take big, long, slow breaths. Say, “Imagine that you are filling a balloon in the bottom of your tummy. That’s right..slowly breathe in as much air as you can to fill that balloon…hold it for a few seconds...and then slowly let the air out.” After a few minutes of deep breathing have your child imagine a beautiful park and get your child to imagine this park in detail as you encourage more use of their imagination with more questions about their special park. Once your child has imagined their special park I want you to ask your child what their favourite animal is. Then ask what his or her favourite colour is. You will explain to your child how this animal will come into your child’s dreams tonight and protect her all night long. For example, “You can imagine feeling really calm and happy right now…and imagine a strong tall horse with a green saddle. Imagine your horse is going to help you with good or bad dreams and help talk to you in your dreams as well as make you feel safe.”
It is normal for children to experience nightmares but when nightmares occur more and more frequently it’s clear that the child or person is experiencing some emotional stress or difficulties in their waking lives. In case reports discussed by Kohen and Olness (2011) in the book titled, “Hypnosis and Hypnotherapy for Children,” hypnotherapy, within 4-5 sessions, helped treat children who experienced insomnia, nightmares, and night terrors. When the clinicians followed up 3 and 7 months later all of these cases documented didn’t report any concerns of reoccurrence of these issues. Hypnotherapy sessions with a certified hypnotherapist can benefit your child because not only can the child receive suggestions for changing the negative symptoms but the hypnotherapist can also work on the underlying issues that may be causing the sleep disturbances or dreams.
Any questions on nightmares and hypnosis, or hypnosis in general, or to book:
How do you connect to people over the phone and online?
The truth is when I was a little girl I actually used to see tiny hair, little silver cords that connected everybody and it used to be like walking through spider webs but of course they weren’t. People would tell me I was crazy because I would talk about these cords that no one else could see. Through these cords I could feel things and see things and I was aware of different feelings. I knew I was different because I was told I was different. I did grow up around a lot of Gypsy’s so it wasn’t that I was totally different, it was accepted in a way.
The first time I was aware that it was really a gift was one time at my great aunt’s house and I could see her son, his name was Tommy and he was standing there in an air pilot uniform, and he was telling me what to say to his mom. I was about 11 years old and my mother was there and took me out of the room. She told me “do you know Tommy’s been dead for a long time and he died in the battle of Britain”. I was young and I said he didn’t look dead to me. That is when my mom decided it was time to teach me how to use my gift. My grandmother was a well-known psychic but I never met her or knew her. My mother had the gift but she refused to tap into it and use it.
We connect through those little cords and it’s like the 6 degrees of separation. Usually now because I’ve been doing it for so long I can recognize if they are dead or alive, but not always. To get an accurate reading from those energies I have to meditate to tap into that cord that connects to that person. I’m one of the very few psychics that can go into crowds and be totally ok with it. I have an on and off switch, which has taken me practice mastering.
Not that long ago I was watching Steven Colbert and he was interviewing Neil Degrassi Tyson world renowned physicist and they were talking about the strings that connect us all. And they now have a microscope that can see it all.
Reiki Healing, last week I had a new customer come to see me. Very nice young man about 46 years old. During his reading I picked up he was having problems with his stomach. He confirmed this, and explained he had had diarrhoea for about three weeks He
We always have a choice in how we want to be living, thinking and feeling. Our mind can choose to be planted in the ego's lair or to be immersed in a spiritual sanctuary. When we are in " a state of rejection" our mind is trapped in the ego and focuses on negative situations, past hurt, is judging other people or focusing on what is lacking in his or her life. Being in this state makes it is easy to want to look at others mistakes and replay past experiences that reflect how these people are at fault. The person has a difficult time looking at themselves and their ability to shift what is no longer serving them. When one places their mind in their spiritual sanctuary they are able to look at the situation much more objectively. For example when a person is noticing that they are ready to forgive someone they are feeling much more sympathy and understanding about the other person's point of view. They feel more neutral and possibly even more loving and they feel ready to start a conversation. Having a open and generous attitude creates much more possibilities for change, better relationships and a greater self-awareness.
Are you wanting success with New Year's Resolutions?
New Year's has officially passed and you may have set some intentions. This is sometimes a disappointing exercise, and I have some light to shed on this for you, and some help.
You need to realize that January 1 is not energetically a time of new beginnings - it was arbitrarily set by Pope Gregory in the 15th Century because January 1 kept drifting further and further away from the winter solstice. The new calendar is more stable and January 1 is always 10 days after the solstice.
So, when is the REAL New Year?
There are two important cycles here, and three dates to consider.
1. You could celebrate the return of the Sun at the Winter Solstice. This time marks the turning of the seasons and is an important marker in our lives.
2. You could celebrate and mark January 1, a convenient date on our current calendar.
3. Or, you could adopt the Vedic New Year, which happens Saturday, January 13. On this date the Sun Transits into the sign of Capricorn.
In South India, they don't start any new projects till this date. The time up until then is used for getting rid of old stuff. Then on the 13th, they will literally take their old stuff into the streets and burn it! Now that's a statement!
So if you could use a re-boot, I suggest you take the next couple days for resting and planning, and then get started on or after the 13th.
The rationale for this is below.
(I also give you permission to reboot as many times as you need, you are worth it!)
Some of you may say, but the Sun moves into Capricorn on December 21!)
When Astrology was new in the West, about 2000 years ago, the Solstice and the movement of the Sun into Capricorn DID coincide, but this will not be happening again for about 24,000 more years! We are dealing with two separate cycles here.
So, why is the movement of the Sun into Capricorn so important?
Capricorn is a very grounded earth sign, ruled by Saturn. Capricorn symbolizes success through hard work, and this is a great energy for starting new projects and changing habits.
During the last month, the Sun has been in Sagittarius, which is very optimistic and energetic, but not grounded at all. It's a good environment for celebrations, and setting high expectations, but not so good for carrying them out.
Life is like Knitting
If you want to knit a sweater you go to the store and you choose your pattern. Then The wool, hopefully it excites you to imagine the sweater completed
You then take out your knitting needles, and you have to pay attention to the pattern How many stitches etc. Most people that knit are getting pleasure out of creating the sweater. Eventually the sweater is finished, and you have a sense of pride and accomplishment in the finished garment. Yet you miss the process of knitting so you choose another pattern and start your next project.
So think of life the same way. You choose your finished product. You get excited about planning the steps. You follow the pattern, either one you designed, or you use somebody else"s pattern. Then you pay attention to the process enjoying what you are doing daily. When your goal is met you take pride in the accomplishment. However you make sure you choose another project and enjoy the process of creating your life daily. Remember if you drop a stitch pick it up right away. This is so you don't have to unravel to far back. In other words focus on the now with the desired outcome firmly in sight.
Enjoy the process.
