Making Wishes Come True with Goals
Recently I was listening to a speech by Elizabeth Gilbert, the author of “Eat, Pray, Love” on TED.com. Gilbert talked about genius and creativity and where it comes from. In ancient times, people saw creativity as being a power of the Gods, fairies, elves, or magic. She also talked about fears about creative ventures.
There are creative ways to make a wish happen. Creating it in your mind is the beginning. I like the vision of Dorothy in the Wizard of Oz knowing that all she had to do was make a wish while wearing her ruby red slippers and click her heels three times. This puts the power into the feet to take a “step forward.”
You have wishes. Your have dreams. You have goals! Yes, you do. Think about it. Imagine having your complete wish, your happy goal, and sit with that for a minute. Yeah! Add a little color, turn up the music, taste the spices, feel it in your grasp, smell the roses! Ahhhh… so good to take a moment with a dream, create a goal and see it in your mind. This is known as daydreaming, the same state of mind as you can use with hypnosis. Anyone who has taken a class or come for a session learns that “all hypnosis is self-hypnosis” and we are your helpful guides, keeping you on the path.
Hypnosis is a wonderful and useful skill, and it can help you achieve what is important to you by giving you focus, peaceful and organized thoughts, and some good brain chemistry to keep you stepping forward.
If you truly want to get your magic slippers in the right direction, make a list of a few ideas, and get going. Are you feeling stuck? Come in for an appointment. Or, how about this. Talk to a friend and come in for a local community class. How about “Goal Setting Through Hypnosis”?
You can sign up for one day class with Cat Wilson, an Instructor at Portland Community College (Sylvania Campus) in Portland, Oregon. She is presenting an entertaining day on “Goal Setting Through Hypnosis” which will begin at 10:00 am and finish at 4:50 pm. You will receive a wonderful book with an audio cd to practice your motivating and inspiring sessions after the class, too! Anyone who has been in a class with Cat knows this will be active and experiential and fun!
Ready to get going? Good. Sign up and pay $39 to Portland Community College, and bring a check for a $15 material fee to Apositiva Institute, too. Grab your ruby red slippers (or golden green ones) and meet Cat in room HT324 at PCC. Cat will be waiting with her ruby red slippers just for you!
