Weddings are wonderful. They are also stressful.
Whether you are the bride, groom, parent, wedding party member, you need to relax and get your mind organized to make the most of this special day.
It may be an unusual application of hypnosis, but hypnosis can help.
I am not talking about bachelor/bachelorette party r-rated hypnosis. I don’t do that. I am talking about getting the jitters under control using the power of your mind.
I know I would have enjoyed my wedding a lot more if I had focused my mind around the idea of how I wanted to be before I put on the tux.
It is also a way for a bride and her groom to project how they want to be throughout the marriage from the very start. And what a wonderful gift for the wedding party.
Here is a letter I received from a bride who was afraid that she would be so nervous and emotional she would ruin her wedding for herself and her guests.
Dear John ,
I am so glad that worked with you on my wedding anxiety. It made me a calmer, happier bride.
I stayed calm and everyone actually did tell me how impressed they were at how calm I was. I had a bride to be at my wedding and she told me she hoped she was just like me on her wedding day.
At the end of the ceremony, I walked back down the aisle and started tearing a little bit. I quickly stopped crying (thank you for your tips on this), dried my eyes and was able to go directly to take pictures.
Thank you so much for helping me to find it within myself to have a fun and relaxing wedding day without becoming overly emotional. I am a true hypnosis believer.

Change the questions you ask yourself and change your life with the Hypnotic Possibilities Process™
This article will appear in the 2018 Rhode Island Wellness Guide
Henry Ford put it this way “Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you are right.” It is almost as if our beliefs hypnotize us for better or for worse.
The sad truth is that by the time we are 5, 6, 7, or 8 years old we have more or less figured out our map of the world. This map is our subconscious belief structure. We then ask ourselves questions based on these subconscious beliefs to guide our behavior. These questions and answers reinforce our child’s eye view of the world as a place either of possibilities, challenges and opportunities or failures, dead-ends, and threats.
Our analytic mind stubbornly keeps insisting our childhood conclusions are right: it discounts any attempt at correction.
The psychological term is self- fulfilling prophecy. But for many of us it is a series of self-un-fullfilling prophecies.
Rather than live in “possibility,” we feel stuck with limited options and habitually ask ourselves disempowering questions like:
Why can’t I quit smoking (stop drinking so much, eating too many donuts, not going to the gym, etc)?”
Why do I always lose my temper with my kids (co-workers, wife/husband, other drivers, etc)?
Why can’t I get out of my own way?
So what is the way out?
Change the Questions You Live Within Through Hypnosis
Hypnotic Coaching and Hypnotherapy are ways to change your fundamental beliefs. This shifts the questions you ask yourself and resulting behavior by by-passing your ordinary analytical mind. A transformation takes place allowing you to live within a new life story asking and answering new empowering questions such as:
Why is it so easy to quit smoking, drink less, eat more consciously, start going to the gym?
Why do I show amazing self-control with my kids (co-workers, wife/husband, other drivers, etc)?
Why am I so confident and at peace?
I call this my Possibilities Process™ and it is extremely efficient and effective because it gets to the root of the problem: how we see ourselves and the world. Hypnosis is commonly used for smoking cessation, weight loss, stress management. But hypnotism is a also a great supplement to traditional therapy and, in fact, works anytime you want to change the way you think, act or feel.
Sound interesting? Then give me a call and lets work together change your inner script helping you turn new possibilities into your day-to-day reality.
Had a great time at the Mind Body Spirit Expo in Warwick today – my daughter Catherine helped me man (well – young woman) the booth and I had a wonderful time doing a presentation on the practice and profession of hypnotism, including a live demonstration of the Dave Elman induction.
