The Hypnosis Advantage: Breaking Through Plateaus

HYPNOSISADVANTAGE.png

The Plateau in Archery

In the archery world, once you have achieved sustainable repeatable form, something happens. A new level emerges. This is the level of the mind. This is where the mental game takes over. If the mind has unresolved ideas about winning/losing, self-esteem, hidden anxieties, old traumas or ideas about not being worthy to win your goals can be kept at bay.  You will find yourself shooting the same scores, over and over again without breaking through to the next level.

Archery Workarounds

These are just some examples of what may not be working well in the mind. With that being said, we take these problems and manage them. We find tricks, we train, we buy new equipment, and we try to get around these unique characteristics that we mislabel as part of our personality or just the way we shoot. This wastes valuable energy and attention that we could be putting in to our performance.

The Hypnosis Advantage for Archery

The advantage of utilizing hypnosis is that it can unravel these mysteries that we all carry with in ourselves, saving us years of work. This provides us with opportunities we never would have unlocked had we not dealt with these mysteries, keeping us from achieving our biggest goals both within archery and outside it.

Work on your Archery Mental Game Today

 So address the mental game where it lives: in the mind. Hypnosis gives you direct access to these unknown mysteries that keep you from your peak performance. Utilize hypnosis to discover all you’re capable of and unlock the mind and your world.

Buck Fever

deer-2264351_1920.jpg

Buck Fever & Hypnosis

Buck Fever is when your mind shuts off in the moment, or you shake uncontrollably when an animal presents itself.  Part of this is due to adrenaline. When adrenaline hits your brain, it overwhelms your conscious mind, and when that happens, the mind clicks off for a moment. For others, this may manifest as a sort of adrenaline dump, and you shake uncontrollably. Buck fever actually affects everyone differently. 

Some people can pull back their bow only to not be able to let go. Other people shot over or under the animal despite having everything sighted in.

This is frustrating. You just spent the whole day in a tree stand, and the animal presents itself, and  you can’t tell what is going on.  You lose touch with yourself and your ability to shoot.

Just like a phobia, where you react in a way that really doesn’t make sense to you, but it just happens. Buck fever is no different. It’s just a behavior set off by a particular pattern. Your mind sees the pattern and responds accordingly. This experience can be changed through hypnosis.

This response can be changed by reprograming your reaction, so when you see the animal, you don’t have to react in a way where everything shuts down, or you shake uncontrollably. You can experience that moment in a calm, controlled manner and not miss the opportunity again.

Afraid to Win: Using Hypnosis to Change The Game

archery-success-strong-shot.png

All of us who compete want to win; it’s a given, right. Of course, it is. But not everyone is wired to want to win; some people are afraid of it. Some people are not okay with or even comfortable with winning. The majority of sport psychology approaches are directed at people in the opposite camp who fear losing and embarrassment. But being afraid of winning is a real thing that can hinder our performance. If you have experienced success as a young child, you most likely got praise from your family. But what your peer group may have offered up may have been a different story. Sometimes when we are successful, we are excluded and treated in a negative way by our peers. When this happens, we develop stories that winning is painful, and if a stories such as these have been created in a young mind, it may have a damaging and lasting result that holds us back from winning.

But what does this mean exactly? When you were young, mainly before the age of 10-12, your mind is in the data collection mode. In this time, our wide-open, child eyes collect everything in with out judgment. During this time, anything with an emotional component or charge that happens, good or bad, gets locked away in the subconscious. So if you were good in school and the popular crowd didn’t like you because you were an academic super, they may have treated you poorly, excluded you or actively bullied you. This creates a story that achievements are bad, that “winning” is dangerous and something you must be protected from.

This story left unaddressed may sabotage your performance as an adult in sports, work, and many other areas of your life. This happens because one of the main functions of the subconscious is to protect you. So your subconscious will keep you from winning because the program it runs is that winning is painful are leads to the treatment you receive earlier in life.

There are a two main ways this reveals itself in archery.  The first is when you are so close to achieving a winning score and something goes wrong or just falls apart for no clear reason.  In this case, you shoot really well, and then during the last couple of ends, you have the worst time. The result is losing the competition.

The second is the when the archer struggles during the start of an archery tournament with lots of stress and anxiety until the bad shots outnumber the good ones, and all chance of winning is lost.  At that moment, the arrows magically find the middle and the strife associated with shooting disappears.  From there forward, you shoot really well.

If this sounds familiar, you may have an underlying story about the danger of winning hiding in your subconscious. Through hypnosis, we can find these stories and change them so you no longer require your subconscious to protect you. You can allow yourself to win, and no longer live with the self-sabotage, becoming the champion you were meant to be.

The Mental Game: Archery & Hypnosis

archery-target-mental-game

Few of us have a mental game, and some of us don’t work on it at all. Yet, we all know that archery is 95% mental. So why don’t we work on our mental side. We don’t work on it because we are taught when we have a problem we just have to train more, work harder, or get better equipment. Sometimes, this is true. Sometimes, it’s not. The mental game should be addressed as much as the shot process because it is an integral part of the shot process—not something separate from it.  This means there is no separate mental side. There are no sides. There is only one collective process. This includes mental work and all the physical discipline that we put into our sport.

There are mental systems out there. And these systems do work as they help distract our conscious minds and alleviating the symptoms that we suffer from.  But hypnosis offers a different way forward.

Using hypnosis we work on the mental game where it happens in the mind. If the mind is not working at its peak, there will be problems that will show up when you don’t want them to.  Problems like competition anxiety that sucks the fun from being a tournament, social anxiety that keeps you isolated and nervous, or even fear of winning or losing that can paralyze you in the moment.

So how do we work on the mind?

 Hypnosis offers a super efficient way to work on the mind. Through hypnosis, we can get into the deep hidden stories that shape our behaviors. The stories that lie outside of our memories this information creates are habitual patterns. These patterns dictate how we respond to competition and pressure. The system and techniques that I use will clean up the subconscious making it functional in a more efficient way helping you get to the outcomes that you are looking for.

Hypnosis can quickly remedy problems that are chronic and have plagued you for years. So if you want to improve your mental game, start with a clean slate within the foundation of your archery—within your mind. This will increase the probability of you getting what you want and achieving your goals. This will make your archery dreams so much easier to achieve. 

If you want to know how exactly hypnosis can help you, call us now at 732-406-3498 for a free consultation and a plan tailored to you.

Getting What You Want

archery-hypnosis

Getting what you want can seem hard, even impossible. The great effort that you make often doesn’t yield much.  You don’t meet the right person, you aren’t given the promotion, your score falls short of what you know you can do in practice. People say you have to stick with it and not give up.  While this is true, if you give up you will never reach your goals, but what if there were some other elements at play and holding you back…

For example, imagine you had to perform in a school play as a young child. As you are waiting to go on stage, you grew more and more anxious. This anxiety may linger causing you problems with public speaking, tackling a job interview, or contributing your ideas in meetings at work.  If you participate in sports, any delays in the event can also trigger this anxiety response. One simple day in your childhood can echo throughout the rest of your life.  Our lack of understanding of the cause of this behavior can be frustrating, leading us to think that we were just born that way or broken.  Some people experience depression or more wide spread anxiety as a result. 

What holds us back is our subconscious programming, stories that enter our subconscious and then function as the foundation for our reactions to the world.  These stories may form at a very young age, when our subconscious was wide open. Before the age of 10, the subconscious mind has no filter. We haven’t developed discernment. We are subjected to whatever shows up: stories, traumas, or even simple misunderstandings. This information gets locked away and filed in the subconscious, sometimes so deeply, that we don’t even know what’s there.  These are the stories and responses holding us back. These stories won’t let us achieve what we desire.

 Whatever your goals--maybe whether it’s getting your dream job, finding love, or winning the big event--these personal milestones can usually be reached once you remove these stories that keep you trapped in the patterns of your past. Once the subconscious is cleaned up, you will be able to master your life. Hypnosis offers a way to clean up your subconscious and remove roadblocks to the success you want. Hypnosis can unlock the misunderstandings of your past and free you to approach situations in new ways that support your success rather than thwart it.  We can go back and neutralize the damaging effects that these stories hold, freeing ourselves and dismantling the structures that keep us from achieving our potential and getting what we want.

The Perfect Archery Shot

perfect-shot-execution-archery-2400487_1920.jpg

The perfect shot in archery happens infrequently. The perfect shot is when the shot goes off without effort, and everything seems to happen on its own.  Some people call this being in the flow or being in the zone. When you experience this, you know that shot was executed with your subconscious mind.

The question is how do we make this happen more frequently. Mostly it’s training and more training with the goal of making the physical more automatic. If we do this enough to get muscle memory to take over, so the shot will go off without our minds getting in the way.

The problem lies with mind. All of us admit that archery is 90% mental. But how many of us work on our mental game?  Some of us do this; we implement a system to manage the mind.  We teach ourselves mantras to repeat.  We recite the steps of shooting process in our minds to keep from thinking about anything else. We try to bore out concentration into the target by staring.

But hypnosis offers a new way to approach mental training and increase the ability of your subconscious mind.

Hypnosis streamlines the subconscious mind and takes away all the obstacles that reside there, allowing the mind to be more efficient.

If you think about it, all of us have experienced a good shot where it felt good and landed in the middle. This means you have the skill and ability to shoot your best scores. If you have achieved this once, you can do it again. The problem is that we have to allow it to happen. We have to trust what we’re doing and give ourselves the room to let it happen.

By neutralizing the obstacles within your subconscious mind, these perfect shots will happen more frequently. These obstacles can be stories or misunderstandings imprinted at an earlier time or younger age.  For example, being bullied may create a story where you view yourself as less than, weak or a person who is not worthy of being happy. This story will turn into not being worthy to win.  Another common experience is with jealousy. Sometimes when you are a winner or successful, your friends get jealous, and they treat you badly.  This can create a story that says winning is painful, so your subconscious will not let you win because it wants to protect you from the pain.  

Hypnosis is an efficient way to clean up the subconscious mind and unlock your hidden potential, allowing you to execute more perfect shots consistently.

Why We Hang Out With Monsters

monsters.jpg

We all have monsters in our lives.  People that perhaps at first we are drawn to for their good qualities, charisma, smarts, or wit, and then slowly, or sometimes, not all that slowly, they turn and bare their teeth in ways that cut us to the quick.

Isn’t it funny how we seem to date or marry or have the same boss or supervisor over and over, who treats us in this same poor way, and we don’t know why this happens?  We beat ourselves up about it.  We try to find the solution through changing how we communicate with them or how we respond to them in the moment.  We may even quit or leave the relationship, but the next monster pops up to take their place.

You may say I don’t know why I keep attracting this type of person. It isnt that the world is full of these horrible people.  Or that we deserve to be treated this way. The answer lies within the stories that are locked away in our subconscious. Negative stories that we picked up when we were younger. These negative stories about ourselves that make up our “normal,” when in reality, they should be purged. They don’t serve us so we need to get rid of them. The monsters keep showing up to bring light or awareness to that very thing within ourselves that is broken and calling to be repaired. The problem is that we ignore the signs /patterns that keep repeating themselves over and over.

 The stories that live within our subconscious and drawn in these monsters are easily changed through hypnosis. Once the stories are neutralized, changed, or put into our past, the monster will stop showing up, and we are free to find someone who is really right for us as a partner or the boss that isn’t a tyrant.

So take a minute and think about the scenarios that keep showing up. I know everyone wants to have a life that is easier to live. Hypnosis can make that a truth.  Call Pure Space today at 732-406-3498 to learn more about how to banish the monsters from your life once and for all.

Archery Target Panic Management and How to Let it Go

Target panic is a broad phrase; it can mean so many different things and show up in so many different ways. Some types of target panic don’t have an anxious component; they’re more psychological, and we write them off as funny little quirks that are part of our personalities to manage them.

There are many methods that we use to manage our particular idiosyncrasies:

  • Some people shoot fast to avoid anxiety build up or pin drift.

  • Others wait endless for the pin to stop.

  • We all know archers with four releases in a pouch so when they feel that they are beginning to punch they can change the release to trick themselves into stopping. 

  • Some of us try to fool ourselves by staring at different locations on the target in order for our pin to sit in the middle.

  • Or there’s the path of adjusting our sites so when we hold low it still hits center.

  • The crazy thing is that these fixes are only temporary until the mind catches on. When it does, then it’s game over.

These funny little things that are unique to you can be eliminated completely.  I’m talking about not having to manage any of these quirks, giving you extra time and attention to devote to your shot. How much better would you be if you could pick your bow up and you only have to deal with the single moment of shooting? 

You are capable of being that person who can shoot lights out just like the pros that you admire and want to shoot like.

Through hypnosis, we can put an end to the endless cycle of management and get you shooting like you’re supposed to. Hypnosis can clear the way for you to perform at your peak, removing all the individual problems that slow you down.

Reshape the Story of You

body-image-hypnosis

Dreams aren’t just for dreamers.  We all have the potential to meet any goal we decide to achieve.  The problem lies within the execution of the task and the stories that provide the framework for our actions.

Often, these stories are created in early childhood.  It may be as simple as a present you received one Christmas, like a new dress from your grandma.  When your six-year old put it on, clearly too short and not your size, perhaps your brother laughed at you or teasingly said something mean. 

This tiny moment can get filed in the subconscious. Stories like these can be born from simple misunderstandings or words misspoken just as easily as a trauma. Then, life layers on top of these stories, and they continue to influence the way we respond to similar situations that show up in our every day lives.  You might approach dresses or how you fit in clothes with reluctance, anxiety, fear, or negative self-talk. Your self-image is now damaged, and the subconscious wants to spare you from this discomfort that you felt in that moment, so it will make sure you never wear a small dress—even if it is the size you are meant to be.

Through hypnosis, we can change or neutralize the stories that lie frozen in time with in your subconscious. Once these debilitating stories are corrected, it takes far less effort to achieve your goals. Your subconscious will be working at 110%. Hypnosis can unlock that amazing you. Discover yourself and the personal power that lies with in.

Unlocking your Inner You

Meditation is only one way to access your inner self.  Hypnosis serves as a great tool, as well.

Meditation is only one way to access your inner self. Hypnosis serves as a great tool, as well.

So many of us go through life knowing there’s more to life then meets the eye. We seek a deeper connection to ourselves.  We want to find a deeper meaning to everything that is happening.

We think only if we can unlock a deeper part of ourselves that everything would make sense. We search for a way to unlock these mysteries and find meaning within ourselves and within our larger place in the universe.

To achieve this, we take up different practices and modalities; we study with groups, take classes, and consult guides. But the real way, and confidence in our place doesn’t emerge; we are the same people playing the game that game is called trying. We often wind up just going through the motions.

But what if I could tell you that there is a deeper you, that person that you aspire to be, the connected person that needs nothing and has everything.

The truth of the matter is you ARE connected; all you have to do is allow.

The first step is allowing me to help you become the person you want to be.

This is a possible. At Pure Space Hypnosis, we can unlock the potential and hidden talents you possess, letting you find the connections you seek. Call today at 732-406-3498 for a free consultation to learn more about how to find your inner talents and purpose.

Archery Target Panic Series: Holding Low

Today, I want to talk about holding low or holding off. This is a strange but very common problem. What you find is that no matter what you do, you cannot hold center; it’s like a magnetic force that pushes the pin or dot from the middle.

Most of us blame our equipment or own lack of skill.  It often comes out of nowhere, and we think something happened to our equipment. Then we spend countless hours and money trying to fix it. Some archers struggle so much with holding low that they quit archery all together. At the heart of the matter, holding low is a form of target panic. While doesn’t feel like an anxious event, it’s still target panic. This problem lies with in your mind.

This unconscious phenomenon is easily rectified through hypnosis. I have successfully treated many people in just a few office visits. They were back to holding center and enjoying archery again.  So, if you want to enjoy yourself and aim with ease, talk to me about how hypnosis can help; call 732-406-3498 for a free phone consultation or to schedule a session in person or over Skype/FaceTime.

Trusting Hypnosis

hypnosis-helps

Many people fear hypnosis.  But really it’s misunderstood. Why is it misunderstood? It comes from a lack of exposure. Most people understand hypnosis to be something that happens in a stage show where the hypnotist makes fun of people. Please understand that this is the goal to entertain. A lot of people think hypnosis is about mind control; it’s not. If anything when you are hypnotized, you are very aware of what is happening you are in complete control.

The truth of it is that hypnosis can help you overcome all kinds of difficulties. I’m talking about the things that you think are part of your personality that you don’t like. And things that you believe to be a chronic condition, such as depression, anxiety, behaviors or phobias that you think are unique to you. This is not the case. Chronic problems can be completely resolved through hypnosis--from perfecting a golf swing to getting rid of anxiety depression or stress.

There are no pills involved, and with no drugs, there are no side effects and treatments don’t go on forever. Hypnosis is a fantastic way to change your life.  Call 732-406-3498 to learn more about how this can help and receive a free, phone consultation on a customized solution for you.

Moving Outside, Getting Ahead: Hypnosis and Archery Performance Gains

hypnosis and archery

Outdoor season is upon us. For some of us, it is a welcome change. We leave the indoor with many challenges.  We think about that one arrow that fell short, or perhaps a disappointment at a tournament.  But once we start outdoor season, we don’t think about them, we leave indoor season and everything we faced there behind.

But the challenges we had inside will still affect us outside.  Maybe we need to work on holding low.  Maybe we have a lot of negative self-talk.  Maybe we freeze up when facing a target.  Maybe we can’t seem to get our release off in time.  The switch from inside to outside can mask these issues for a time, but they invariably show back up. 

This transition period is a great time to work on improving your mental game.  You can overcome these haunting issues and move forward toward the goals you have for your archery game.

Hypnosis can help quickly and efficiently, so you can perform at your full potential.  Stop managing your problems and just getting by; it’s time to fix them. Unburden yourself and use the extra attention to make your shot better. 

Call Pure Space Hypnosis at 732-406-3498 today.  Online and in-person sessions are available.

Lancaster Classic Update—Archery And Hypnosis

lancaster-classic-archery-hypnosis.jpg

Just the other weekend, I attended the Lancaster classic archery tournament. I was there to help spread the word on how hypnosis can help with archery.

I found a lot of confusion about what hypnosis is. Hypnosis is a super efficient way to communicate with subconscious. It allows the hypnotist to change unhealthy patterns that are locked away in our minds. These patterns restrict us from performing at 100%.

Hypnosis is not a new piece of hardware. It’s a way to help you perform at your peak. Most of us don’t perform at 100%. We have limiting beliefs and other subconscious patterns that hold us back. And yes, target panic, that holds us back too.

This is the realm I work in. So if you want to unlock your archery abilities and get rid of the panic problems and perform at 100%, give me a call at 732-406-3498.

I also had the chance to talk to Chris Bee, Tim Gillingham, and George Ryals IV about hypnosis and archery on the BeeCast if you want to understand this a little more.

Quitting Smoking

Grim Reper

Quitting smoking can be a  difficult problem to overcome. One average, a pack of cigarettes costs $6; with a pack a day habit, smoking costs cost $2,000 a year. This number doesn’t include the costs to your health. Medical studies document all too well the health risks of smoking. Every morning when you wake up coughing, you experience those risks first hand.

While there are many ways out there to quit smoking, most of them require lots of time, money, and tenacity. Sadly, many of the methods claim a very low success rate, leaving you frustrated and feeling like a failure.

Fortunately, hypnosis offers a better way to quit smoking!

Hypnosis Helps You to Stop Smoking

Hypnosis has an 80% success rate. What most people require is 1-2 office visits and the need to quit—that is it. The best thing with hypnosis is that when you leave the office, and you no longer possess desire to light up It returns you to life as non-smoker. 

When we get your subconscious mind on board that you are not actually a smoker, the need and desires are gone. 

What are Your Next Steps to Stop Smoking Today

It’s time to reclaim your health. Get rid of a costly habit that robs you of your health and money and take charge of your life; you don’t have be ruled by your smokes.
