Hypnosis works at the subconscious level. It is here where we have created patterns of thought which result in outward circumstances. Therefore, it goes without saying change your thoughts, change your life. If you don’t like how your outer world is showing up for you, then it may be time to focus on making changes to your inner world. Hypnosis is a way to get to work very quickly and make noticeable changes after even just one session. There are 3 types or ways people experience results with hypnosis. Those who are highly suggestible can see immediate results after just one session. The second group sees results but they take a little more time to unfold. The last group doesn’t even realize change has happened until much later when they look back and realize a roadblock in their life seemed to just disappear without them being aware of it.
An effective hypnotherapist will do a suggestibility test or several to get a good idea of where you land on that scale. With hypnosis we use visualization techniques to help you achieve a state of complete relaxation. Once you are in this state you are able to let down the walls to your subconscious mind and let change in. The more suggestible you are the faster the information gets accepted by the subconscious mind. Setting an intention at the beginning of each session, that you welcome change, can help you set yourself up for success.
Getting relaxed is key, as we relax the muscles we also relax the mind. This is what helps lower our protective walls. Somewhere in the past you told yourself something, or made some type of declaration that started you down a path. Now that path may not be what you expected it to be. 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 zodiac and planet energies, and the strengths aligned to each one, is a great way to create these new ways of thinking that result a new healthier you.
With the energy of Gemini, we are working directly with our mind. Gemini is one of the 3 Air signs. All Air signs work with communication and relating to others. We have already covered Aquarius, and the last one we will review is Libra. But for today our focus is on Gemini. If we want to change outcomes we have simply got to change our way of thinking. Gemini rules communication, including how we communicate with ourselves. Maybe you have Mars in Gemini and you are little harsh with your language, both with yourself and others. With hypnosis we can learn to channel that harshness and turn it into passionate speech instead. We oftentimes adopt our way of thinking from our parents. At a young age they influenced us, were the first to introduce us to new things. However, as we age things change and so might our thinking. Knowing where you have Gemini in your chart, the house it sits in can show you where communication plays a major role in your everyday life.
Gemini is the 3rd house in the zodiac. After you have defined your values with the energy of the 2nd house, you are ready to communicate those values to others. In order to communicate we need to think clearly, understand what we are talking about, and then share that vision with others. The 3rd house also rules our local community, a place where we have shared values. A perfect example of this is school. You will find a lot of really good teachers with strong Gemini energy in their chart, especially elementary school level.
Gemini is the sign of the twins in the Zodiac, which represents that there are 2 sides to every story. There is both light and dark. The lungs and the hands are both ruled by this sign. If you think about it you need air to communicate, and many of us use our hands to talk, especially those who use sign language to communicate. I often see those who are mechanics or laborers with strong Gemini energy as well, since they work so much with their hands.
The planet ruler of Gemini is Mercury. This planet has 3-4 retrogrades each year. This is what has us constantly reviewing our plans. Mercury was considered the messenger to the Gods, and he also was a bit of a trickster. Who do you know with strong Gemini energy that loves to make people laugh?
Mercury represents communication, organization, planning, which sounds like a lot of teachers I know! This is also the planet of transportation and communication devices, both of which tend to go haywire every time this planet goes retrograde. Mercury is seen as neutral, being neither masculine or feminine in energy. It can evoke nervousness and anxiety. The closer Mercury gets to the Sun the more this shows up in our daily lives. If that happens to be you, then hypnosis is something that can help you overcome your anxiousness.
Let’s tap in together to the Gemini energy now and learn how to communicate with others and express ourselves in a positive way. 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.
For additional work with the signs and hypnosis you can take part in one of my coaching packages where we work with the current energy to help you achieve your personal goals. For more on this please visit my website www.maraleeburnett.com.
