The Power of the Mind

Sometimes when I’m working with patients, they will tell me that nothing seems to work for them. They react negatively to all supplements. It’s as if something is working against them.

At these times, I often think about whether their unconscious mind is working for or against them.

In certain circumstances, symptoms can be a cry for help from the body. Consciously the person may not realize this or think that the “body isn’t cooperating”. This can be very confusing and troubling to a person. The question is, how is one supposed to navigate through this?

I like to use an analogy of a person climbing a mountain. Using a personal example, when we were in St. Lucia we decided to climb the Gros Piton. It was about a 2-3 hour hike up. We had a power-house of a woman guiding us up the trail –at times it was hard to see where the path was. Other times there were curious creatures along the way (scorpion and very scary spiders!). In the end, we made it to the top and triumphantly looked at the beautiful vista of turquoise blue water, the Petit Piton beside us and lush flora all around. Without the guide, it would’ve taken us at least twice to 3x as long and there would have been mass confusion and likely some arguing all the way up.

As an ND my role is to help guide you and find the path of least resistance, all the while checking in with the conscious mind (through questions) and unconscious mind (via hypnosis) to make sure they are on the ‘same page’. If one is in conflict then healing becomes a difficult process.
