The Secret Behind Hypnosis!

Headshot2010.jpg


Marti Liebowitz is a Certified Hypnotherapist and owner of Harmony Through Hypnosis a hypnotherapy practice in Colorado Springs, CO joins the show. Marti is a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists and specializes in smoking cessation, weight management, Fertility by Hypnosis, and hypnosis for stroke recovery.


Note: Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode!


As a hypnotist, Marti Liebowitz helps people change their minds...in other words, through hypnosis we can replace negative thoughts, habits, and behaviors with positive ones that put the client back in control of his or her life. Marti’s practice is focused on client-centered hypnotherapy. This means that she customizes her sessions to the client's individual personality and goals. There is no one-size-fits-all technique with hypnosis.
Marti is a member of the National Guild of Hypnotists, which is the largest and oldest hypnotherapy membership organization in the world. For those who are interested in a hypnotherapy session who live outside the Colorado Springs area, she offer sessions online via Skype. It's the next best thing to sitting in her office.

Hypnosis is a quick, safe and effective solution to reach goals, overcome undesirable habits, and bring dreams to life. A common myth about hypnosis is that the participant is under the hypnotist's control. This is absolutely not true. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis, so the power to bring about positive change lies within you. The hypnotist is merely a guide into the deep levels of the subconscious.
Just a few examples of common applications of hypnotherapy are: Smoking Cessation, Weight Loss, Fertility, Stroke Recovery, Anger and Stress Management, Confidence and Self-Esteem, Habit Control, Memory and Study Habits, Sports Performance, Test Anxiety, Public Speaking, Sales and Business Motivation and Trauma.

Marti is also trained in using hypnosis for fertility. This powerful program helps a woman boost her fertility by creating a balance between her mind and body. Not only will any stress about trying to conceive be drastically reduced, but through hypnosis we can remove any subconscious blocks that she may have about becoming pregnant. This program works well not only for women trying to conceive naturally, but also is a wonderful complement to medical procedures that enhances the chances for success.

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Marti Liebowitz


Eric Michaels: What is the secret behind hypnosis when it comes to pound shedding or stopping smoking?
Marti Liebowitz: Imagine that you have a steel lock box, which represents your subconscious mind. This lock box  contains all kinds of beliefs and emotions, including habits and behaviors. People develop behaviors and habits because somewhere along the way those actions felt good or natural or safe or comfortable to them. Because that action creates an emotion of “this feels good,” that action gets stored as a belief in the lock box. We tend to like to do stuff that feels good to us…we don’t like to do stuff that feels bad.  For example, we might have stored in the lock box a belief that “setting fire to a bunch of leaves rolled up in a piece of paper and inhaling the smoke makes me feel good.” Or “relaxing on the couch in front of the TV after an exhausting day at work feels better than working out.” Or “eating this entire bag of cookies makes this sad feeling go away.” Or “I’m safe from unwanted attention under this layer of fat.”

After a while, most people decide that they want to change some of those behaviors locked in that box. They discover that their habits and behaviors, although comfortable and easy, are actually holding them back.  They might try to quit smoking, or eat healthier, or exercise more. However, they cannot open the lockbox because the feelings inside are so strong, the beliefs contained inside are so powerful, and change is incredibly difficult.

Think of hypnosis as the key that opens the lockbox. Hypnosis is a natural state of mind where that lockbox is wide open, and the contents are open for examination and change by the power of suggestion.


Eric Michaels: How do you help clients who want to shed pounds?
Marti Liebowitz: There are so many different factors that contribute to difficulties in losing weight. For a person who overeats, I give them suggestions to help their subconscious minds to recognize when they are full to avoid overeating.   If the client needs to exercise more, then there are suggestions to encourage the subconscious to enjoy the benefits of exercise. If the client makes poor choices in what they eat, hypnosis can be used to help the client’s subconscious mind accept that he or she has control over the choices in food, drink, and exercise. I’ve also helped clients uncover emotional reasons their bodies are holding on to excess weight. If they are emotional eaters, I help the client to change the emotional patterns on a subconscious level.


Eric Michaels: What about clients who want to quit smoking?
Marti Liebowitz: Before hypnosis begins, I find out what the clients’ motivations are for quitting. I find out what they like about smoking, and what they hate about it. I find out what they are going to miss about it. I emphasize the beliefs that are the most emotional for the client. Once the client is in hypnosis, I suggest to the client that the things they do want as a non-smoker are so much better, so much more rewarding, and makes so much more sense than smoking. For those who have a deeper emotional connection to smoking, then I ask them to think of a time right before they decided to start smoking. I ask their “present” or “current” or “adult” self enter into the scene and convince their younger self not to do it. I encourage them to make that younger self understand, and then I encourage the younger self to respond. I’ll have the two “selves” go back and forth until the client can imagine his/her younger self making a better choice from smoking. Or I’ll invite the part of the client that wants to continue smoking and the part that wants to give it up to have a discussion and come to a resolution.


Eric Michaels: How have you helped the clients’ mind stop the craving for nicotine or for food?
Marti Liebowitz: One of the unique benefits of quitting smoking with hypnosis is that when the client is successful in becoming a non-smoker, then they have no cravings, urges, or physical withdrawal symptoms. I remind them of this fact before hypnosis even begins, and once in hypnosis I emphasize it again. I suggest to them some imagery around the physical changes occurring in their brains that make this phenomenon happen. I suggest that there will be no cravings or urges. I also suggest positive alternatives for feelings should a craving arise. I work with what is important to the client. I use their language, their “hot buttons”, their own suggestions. The clients want the cravings to go away, so their subconscious minds are already on board to accept the suggestions for the new feelings.

Food cravings work in a very similar way. I might suggest that they feel uncomfortable, bloated, slow, tired, sluggish, etc. when they consume that item. I’ll emphasize that they’ll want to do anything to avoid these feelings and sensations, and that anytime they might feel tempted by the item, they’ll remember those uncomfortable feelings.


Eric Michaels: What are some of your most memorable experiences with hypnosis?
Marti Liebowitz: I had a client who wanted to stop drinking so much diet soda. She drank two 44oz cups of it a day. When she came to her session, she even brought one in with her because she was thirsty. When we were done, she took one look at her half full cup of soda, said “I can’t believe this,” and immediately dumped the rest of it out. It’s been nearly two years and she still won’t drink the stuff. I once had a smoker who was having trouble letting go of his need to smoke, and under hypnosis we discovered there was an internal power struggle between a “feminine” side of him that wanted to quit for health and vanity reasons, and the part of him that held firmly to the belief that smoking made him appear more manly and tough, which were traits that he needed to personify in his profession.  But my most memorable moment was my own first experience with hypnosis. One of the suggestions I received was to take stairs more often. At the time I worked in an office two floors above the parking garage, and I used to play a game with myself that if I pushed the elevator button and the elevator was waiting, I’d take the elevator upstairs, but if I had to wait, I’d take the stairs. When I went back to work after my hypnosis session, I couldn’t even make myself push the elevator button. I just kept thinking about how stairs were a better choice, the elevator was the lazy way out. That kept up in the weeks and months that followed, even the day that I was bringing back coffee for the whole office and was balancing the coffee cups in my arms. I had to talk myself into the reasonable justification for using the elevator JUST THAT ONE TIME.

Replacing Your Smoking Habit With…

teresavan-zeller.jpg


Certified Hypnotherapist, Teresa Van Zeller joined the show to discuss the mindset, hypnosis in quitting smoking.


Note: Refer to audio player below to listen to this episode.


Teresa Van-Zeller has been intrigued about the world of hypnosis since childhood, however, it wasn’t until she started her training to become a Hypnotherapist that she realized the incredible potentials of using hypnosis and hypnotherapy to effect change in people.  She learned the values of using hypnosis from personal experience.  In the first year that she practiced self hypnosis, she overcame several issues of her own, including chronic neck and back pain, fear of flying, and insomnia--all issues that at one time were suffered on a daily basis and are now only rarely experienced, so rarely that they can only be categorized as an occasional nuisance.

What was most amazing to her was how easy it was to make changes in life and how once those changes were made, all the other areas of her life improved as well.  Using and teaching hypnosis to help others effect changes in their lives has become her passion.

Within one year after becoming a Certified Hypnotherapist, Teresa was asked to teach the National Guild of Hypnotist’s Hypnotherapist Certification course at the school she had attended.  Soon after, she was  asked to join the faculty and sit on the Board of Directors of the HypnoBirthing ® Institute. She has trained over one thousand parents and HypnoBirthing® Practitioners.  In addition, she was asked to join the faculty of Roy Hunter’s Alliance Self-Empowerment, Inc. and Teresa now has her own school where she teaches Roy’s highly acclaimed Certified Hypnotherapist course which is accepted in many colleges across the nation.

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Dr. Roberta Temes


Eric Michaels: Can I get stuck in a trance?
Dr. Roberta: Impossible. You will come back to regular after several minutes of quiet. You will be bored and open your eyes and be finished with hypnosis. A professional hypnotist takes you out of hypnosis easily and simply, using just a few words.


Eric Michaels: What if I am very strong-minded?
Dr. Roberta: The more strong-minded you are, the more likely you will accomplish your goal. You and the hypnotist are on the same team. You are allies, not adversaries. You both are striving for the same result.


Eric Michaels: Will I quack like a duck? Reveal all my secrets?
Dr. Roberta: Yes, you might if you go to a stage hypnotist whose job is to entertain an audience. If you go to a clinical (medical) hypnotist whose job is to help you, you will be told to do things that you want to do in order to achieve your goal. During hypnosis the hypnotist will give you instructions – you do not speak.


Eric Michaels: Are volunteers at hypnosis stage events faking it?
Dr. Roberta: No, they are truly hypnotized. But, they are the 15% of the population who are extremely hypnotizable. That’s why the stage hypnotist will ask some volunteers to return to their seats – they are not that hypnotizable, as evidenced by certain behaviors they display when first up on stage.


Eric Michaels: What are the side effects to hypnosis?
Dr. Roberta: Some people, not all, feel extremely mellow afterward and for an hour or so cannot/ should not drive or do a competitive activity. Most people will fall asleep easily that night and enjoy a deep replenishing sleep.

Partial Transcript of Interview with Dr. Levy Lawrence


Eric Michaels: There seem to be many sorts of mental health practitioners out there, social workers, mental health counselors, hypnotists, practitioners of NLP, psychiatrists. You are a licensed psychologist in the state of Florida. What exactly is a psychologist and how are they different from psychiatrists and other mental health care practitioners?

Dr. Levy: I am glad you asked that question. First a psychiatrist is a medical doctor who goes through medical training and then after medical school receives initial training in psychiatry and perhaps neurology. The main tool that psychiatrists use today is medication. There was a time when the psychiatrist provided therapy but because of the health care situation, and because frankly, people want instant cure, they use medication primarily. Psychologist come from an academic tradition of research and they receive five years of schooling plus, post doctorate work to get licensed and they primarily study research methods, therapy and different types of therapy and their training involves therapy without these meds. The other sort of practitioners often are lesser trained or some of them like hypnotist...


Eric Michaels: If you do not use medications, how does psychotherapy work?

Dr. Levy: At one time, psychotherapy was called the talking cure but really it is the listening cure. Therapy works in several ways. Most people do not experience a time where they are listened to deeply where someone is listening and asking questions that may help them find insight - so good therapy can either help somebody gain insight on their feelings and emotions or help them change their behavior or help the unconscious conscious and makes them aware of what...through talking clearly in a safe environment with a legal psychologist they get an opportunity to explore their emotions and find new ways of thinking, feeling, acting and being so that is actually changes the way they think, act and behave...


Eric Michaels: Who is the typical patient who might come to see you?

Dr. Levy: Actually, it's anybody. People come to see me because they have reached a point in their life where the stress and pain they are feeling is so overwhelming they don't know what to do with it. They may come to see me because they have had a break up and they are overwhelmed with their feelings. Or someone comes to see me because their husband or wife is telling them they are tired of what they are doing - go see somebody. They could come to see me because they are just depressed. Typically it's when symptoms, sadness, anxiety, lack of sleep, stuck in their life, exhausted in reading self help books....basically anyone and everybody.

Abbreviated Transcript of Interview with Seth-Deborah Roth


Eric Michaels: What is the best way to describe hypnosis?

Seth-Deborah: Hypnosis is a natural state of being and is a way of reaching the subconscious mind and begins with focus. A lot of people go under hypnosis all on your own, you are driving your car and you miss the exit or kids when they are on their computer game or they are on their videos and parents are calling them to dinner and what appears to the average onlooker that they are zoned out they are actually zoned in. It's not that they can't hear their parents but it is that they are choosing to focus on something else...

Eric Michaels: Could it be possible for hypnosis techniques to be used in helping build relationships.

Seth-Deborah: YES! One of the things that happens because the brain really doesn't know the difference between the reality and not the reality. Our conscious mind knows the difference but not the brain so to speak so we have to tell our conscious mind, out aware mind and then we have our unconscious mind - the unaware mind. Part of that has to do with your body running your heart, your lungs etc...to keep you alive and well. Another part of that unconscious, unaware mind which is your subconscious mind, which has to do with your emotional makeup. It is primly directed to also keep you alive and well. In hypnosis, we are able to ask that subconscious mind and through imagination and through old memories...

Eric Michaels: In conducting your tele-sessions what is the average client looking to accomplish through your instruction?

Seth-Deborah: The way to sum it up - they are looking to get control of their life. Whether it is for smoking, eating, pain management, addictions such as alcohol and things like that, people are looking to get back control of their lives....
