Hey Rassi/All,

Yes, I had the session last Friday morning. It went pretty well as expected.

We spoke for a good 90 minutes about various subjects helping her to understand what it was I was looking for help with, get exact terminology, etc. I then went thru various stages of relaxation, and then mental imagery, and finally a mental picture of me in my office trading, in as much detail as possible. While the last was happening, I could hear the voice of the hypnotherapist using positive words and phrases, and reminding me how to breathe to stay as relaxed as possible. I was aware of what she was saying the entire time, and could have "awaken" at any time if I really felt the need.

It was nothing magical or spiritual in any way, simply a reminder to me that I need to stay positive at all times (for trading and otherwise), use whatever technique works for me to stay relaxed the entire time while trading (mine happens to be deep breathing), and reinforced my belief in mental imagery / practicing various situations in your head to help you stay relaxed and calm, which will allow you to make the best decisions without other factors, like unnecessary fears or anxieties getting in the way. I think the key is getting details from the mental pictures, textures, smells, colors, etc.

I probably won't see the hypnotherapist again, but feel I got my money's worth from the visit, and have a number of things to work on by myself.

Gary

So she didnt look back into your past and try to figure out any unresolved issues you may have that are holding you back?

Rassi,

No, we didn't go that far. The total session lasted about 2 1/2 hours, and I feel that doing that would have taken another session entirely. The hypnotherapist mentioned she will call this week and offer support/help in any way possible over the phone or in person. The price she charged was very reasonable, and she seems very sincere. I may decide at some point in the near future to do another visit, but as of today, I will not be scheduling my next appointment.

Too much baggage!!!

Hi all,
Most of us accumulate a lot of subconcious "baggage" over our lives that makes us act the way we do.

In my opinion, the thing that impacts trading the most is our "fear of easy money". Our subconcious is programmed from early in life that we must work hard for our money, and not take too many risks. The we start trading and it seems easy. We make a few easy dollars and then the self sabotage starts. Or maybe the opposite occurs and your capital takes a hit. Once again Mr Self Sabotage comes to the fore. We find ourselves looking for excuses (indicators, poor entry timing, etc, etc).

Unfortunately our friends and family often don't help. They like us the way we are now. So what kind of advice do you think they will give you?

Will hypnosis help? I believe it will, especially if the focus is on changing the key subconscious beliefs.

Larry,

I spoke with a few different places and did some research, and I think you should expect to pay somewhere around $50-$100 an hour for a clinical hypnotherapist.

Meggs,

I agree with much of what you are saying here. But... What you need to do is remind yourself, it is not "easy money"; at least not after you have been trading for a good amount of time. The amount of energy, work, pain, etc, is a great cost, and is thus not "easy". You will have earned that so called easy money after much cost.

Causality is the relationship between an event (the cause) and a second event (the effect), where the second event is a consequence of the first.

Hypnosis is like taking the fast lane, in order to achieve changes fast.

Imagine it this way!

What does it take to view charts on your computer?!
A charting application right?! You need the software in order to be able to get charts!
Are you able to get charts if you lack the software?
The correct answer is NO!

Now, what happens if your software gets corrupted (i.e. virus)?
The results and the effect is bad! Right?

The mind works exactly the same!
In order to make it do something for you, you have to have the software!
If you have the software, but it is infected, then the result is bad!

Hypnosis goes into your hard drive and it is able to do two things:

1: Put in the desired software, and/or
2: Free you of the virus.

It is important to take notice of one thing here. If you go to a hypnotist and ask to get a new software, but you happen to have a "virus" in your subconscious mind. Then the new input will still be overlapped by the "virus"!

That's why it is very important to go to a good hypnotist. Normally they should be able to give you the right option, and notice what's needed.


Here's a link to a very professional hypnotic method. He's a student of Gerald Kein (Gerald Kein, a living legend):

USA - Browse Locations - Find a Hypnotist or Hypnotherapist - Hypnosis-Directory.com

(these are the locations for the USA) and these are world wide:

Browse Locations - Find a Hypnotist or Hypnotherapist - Hypnosis-Directory.com

And here is the home page:

We all struggle to make tomorrow look like yesterday!
Get rid of your past and let the future unfold from the now.
Past performance is not indicative of future results.

I found this website, its quite the sales page but I think there may be value here. I've not bought it yet but probably will at some point.

Just for information.
