Mandy, a Hypnobabies Instructor in Denver got this email from one of her students.
I wanted to share a few experiences I’ve had recently with the Hypnosis practice and CD’s.
I’ve been practicing a lot and using the CD’s and it seems easier to relax every time I do it. I have RA and this generally effect my hands and wrists the most right now so every evening around 9 pm my hands swell up and I have intense pain in my wrists making it a challenge to find a comfortable sleeping position. I’ve been listening to the CD’s and during the CD I can completely lose my sense of pain my hands—as if they are not there at all, when I come up from Hypnosis that pain is still there although not always as strong as before, so cool.
Additionally, I am a very nervous flier and I do fly often so I have been developing techniques to help me stay calm during take off and landing. Yesterday when I flew, I practice my finger drop and middle switch technique many times throughout the flight and I felt so relaxed and rested. When it got close to landing I listened to the deepening track then turned the track off and continued using affirmations for the remainer of the landing- Deeper and deeper relaxed, Peaceful, Calm and Confident and it was amazing I was sitting with my eyes closed and smiling as the plane bumped along during a very windy landing.
The added benefit was that even though I got up at 3:30 am and went to bed quite late I felt rested and relaxed through out the whole day and did not feel over tired and cranky as I usually do on a flight day.
I just wanted to share becasue I am so excited and delighted that the Hypnosis seems to be working very well for me. I was talking with my co workers about my upcoming birth and choice to do a home birth and I really felt completely confident, empowered and enthusiastic (I was glowing) which is a significant shift from how I was feeling before our class began.
I have been having a lot of pelvic and hip pain on my left side. My chiropractor said it is probably symphysis pubic dysfunction and it will probably bother me until she’s born. I have been using Hypnobabies to help me deal with the discomfort and it has been a life saver! Especially at night when I’m trying to sleep. I had some doubts about how well Hypnobabies would really work once I was in labor since I’m not in any pain when I practice. Now I know how well it works and I have no doubts that I can have a completely comfortable delivery. I will keep you updated on how we’re doing. She could be here any time now :)
I love this Hypnobabies Tribute a Hypnobabies Dad made! :)
I have 3 little ones under the age of 6 and as you can imagine, sometime our night-night routine doesn’t go as smoothly as I’d like. I began using the Toddler Sleepy-Time track on Saturday night. I snuggled all 3 of them with me as we listened to it for the first time together. They were all interested in it, telling me about the color of their clouds and what they wanted the fairy to bring them. The 3 year old was the first to go out, followed quickly by the 5 year old and not long after the usual hold out, the 1 year old.
The next night, we all gathered together in the big comfy chair for our night-night snuggle, all 3 in my lap with one big blanket for all of us. My husband gave us all hugs and kisses, then turned out the light as we settled in to listen to Kerry. My 5 year old commented that the story was boring and wouldn’t put him to sleep; this time he didn’t make it past the clouds before he was snoring. The 3 year old followed shortly behind as she quickly drifted off to sleepy land. What surprised me most was the snoring that came next, not from the 1 year old, but from my husband in the other chair!
Thanks Hypnobabies for another amazing tool for improving our lives!
