What can we do during the off-season to get recharge and get ready? Some of us will take some needed time off; others will revamp equipment. The rest focus on the indoor season that’s quickly coming upon us and begin shooting scoring rounds as soon as they can. We look at this new season with optimistic eyes, thinking this year it will all come together.

During this transitional phase is a great time to look inward. If your equipment is shooting pretty well, the only way to make huge significant change is to work on the mind.  And everyone admits that archery is primarily a mental game. One of the best ways to work in this area, is what I call Mind Tuning. Tuning the mind can give you a significant jump in performance.  This is because we seldom work on the mind. Most people only look to their form or bow tune for answers. They never think about cleaning up their minds to improve their game. This is mostly because there aren’t any well known methods to do this until now. 

Hypnosis is a fast efficient way to tune the mind. What I mean by this is that you clean out all the old programming that holds you back. This information consists of your personal stories that you have collected over time. The stories that don’t serve you anymore. These simple stories that consist of events or misunderstandings that happened at a time when your mind was wide-open, usually in early childhood. This is the time when people define their world in simple but powerful ways. These stories act as rudders guiding us through our lives, influencing our behaviors, and personal self image. 

Fortunately through hypnotic techniques, the stories can be changed or neutralized in a way that is beneficial to your personal wellbeing. Once liberated from these restrictions, your performance potential grows exponentially, you are no longer held back by yourself.  You get out of your own way.

Let’s take a moment and think about this for a minute, the only thing that changes from arrow to arrow is you. Once your shot execution has reached a decent level of repeatability, it doesn’t change that much between shots. What does change is our perceptions and needs. Like when we are shooting clean and the need to keep this going grows harder and harder. The truth of the matter is nothing has changed--an arrow is still just an arrow. The only thing that changes is you. The things that steer you off your course are the stories in your mind. So clean up the mental disharmony, dissolve the obstacles, and simplify your shot. 

The off season is the perfect time to do this. We all now archery is 98% in our heads--so why not take this opportunity to set these important changes in motion. We all know that any change we implement takes time to integrated behind the bow--so don’t let this time evaporate. The time is now!

Conquering Test Anxiety With Hypnosis


Test Anxiety Symptoms

Test anxiety affects a lot of young people; even though they are highly intelligent, hardworking individuals. When it comes to taking any kind of test, they can become anxious, lose focus, and their minds shut down. Some even get nauseous or have headaches.  Others may finish their test, only to then go back and second question their answers--only to find out that they had the right answer in the first place! This type of anxiety is very stressful. 

Root Cause of Test Anxiety

Young people face so much pressure to excel academically. Their GPA dictates which doors open and which close. It is truly important that an academic career is not full of stress. Yes, there’s always some stress and hard work, but it shouldn’t be overwhelming to the point where it makes an individual sick or think they need prescriptions to get through school. In order for the mind to work efficiently and creatively, it needs to be calm and not overwhelmed. Fortunately, hypnosis provides a way to greatly reduce or eliminate testing anxiety. 

Test anxiety is a learned behavior. We’re not born with it. It usually happens because of an event or misunderstanding that occurred at a younger age, some time before our rational mind was completely developed. For example, the first impression that planted the anxiety seed could stem from an early test, performance, or project that was evaluated in a way our young mind didn’t understand or felt stung by. This impression then stays in your subconscious mind as historical data. We refer back to this data every time the pattern of a test shows up. The problem is this historical data is connected to an uncomfortable anxious feeling, which then produces test anxiety. 

Test Anxiety Treatment: Hypnosis

Hypnosis can eliminate test anxiety by finding the particular story or pattern with the anxious charge. Utilizing hypnotic techniques, we neutralize the story changing the pattern to one without anxiety, and the test anxiety vanishes. With this out-of-the-way, students are able to focus on what matters--their education!

If this is something your student or you need, please call Pure Space Hypnosis at 732-406-3498 to learn more or set up your first appointment.

Driving Anxiety and Hypnosis Solutions



Driving anxiety is more common than you know. Driving anxiety is triggered by many different road elements. Some individuals can’t drive on highways and are forced to stick to the back roads; some can’t drive over bridges as crossing the bridge can be paralyzing. Others can’t drive down hills. Not only is this a huge inconvenience, it is a certain safety concern. People who suffer from this often have panic attacks behind the wheel, putting themselves and the people they love at risk. Imagine having driving anxiety, and then you become a new parent. Now what are you going to do? You can’t safely cart your children around. If you suffer from anxiety while driving, getting behind the wheel is potentially dangerous to yourself, your passengers, and everyone on the road with you.


People try to manage it as best they can.  Because of the lack of information out there, they don’t realize that there are quick, drug free alternative ways to rectify this problem. Fortunately, hypnosis can effectively eliminate all types of anxiety. Getting rid of driving anxiety can be as simple as a few office visits. Hypnosis is one of the quickest ways to eliminate this kind of behavior because it finds the root of the problem and corrects it at the source.


The reason these behaviors exist is often due to some type of early event or a baseline anxiety that manifests when you are driving. Most baseline anxieties have a starting point, and hypnosis works in the subconscious mind to uncover this historical data that influences your present day behavior. Through hypnotic techniques, we can discover these origin stories that contain the anxious charge. The process of hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind, and once the conscious mind is put aside, the hidden stories are easily found.  The unwanted behavior causing the issue is directly tethered to the problem story/event or misunderstanding that is lingering in the subconscious. Under hypnosis we can rewrite these stories and eliminate the emotional charge. Once neutralized, these anxieties have no basis in your reality. The end result is that the problem vanishes. This is why these methods are super efficient at creating permanent change. 

So take your life back. Make your world a safer place. Explore the possibilities of hypnosis.  Call 732-406-3498 to learn more or schedule an appointment today.

Ending Social Anxiety in Adults and Children


Social Anxiety Symptoms

Quite simply social anxiety is the inability to be comfortable around groups of people, no matter the size. Most people have some degree of social anxiety. If the idea of meeting new people or participating in a group activity makes you feel uncomfortable, chances are you have some level of anxiety. Another symptom that you may not recognize is when you’re in an argument or disagreement, and the emotion becomes so intense, your mind shuts off you feel like you just can’t think. When this happens, you never get the opportunity to speak your side of the story. This can be very frustrating. The communication breakdown can ruin relationships and workplace opportunities. 

Social Anxiety In Children

When this type of anxiety shows up in children, it can impact their school life, their ability to learn, and their social development. We see them not getting along with other children, having a very small group of friends, sitting alone at a party, or clinging to us in social environments. Seeing this, we say he or she is shy, and we often think or say, they’ll grow out of it. Sometimes they will; for those who can’t this type of anxiety definitely can be a lifelong problem. One of the major problems with anxiety is that when it’s left unchecked, it can build to a crippling level.

Hypnosis Can Cure Social Anxiety

There are many methods out there that can help you manage anxiety. But hypnosis is one option that not only can help you manage anxiety, it can eliminate it. Hypnosis can quickly find the root cause of your anxiety. Since these methods are so effective, hypnosis can remedy these types of problems rather quickly. This efficiency comes from the fact that hypnosis bypasses the conscious mind.

By doing this, it lets us explore the subconscious to find the hidden information/story that keeps us in the anxious state. We all have these stories, and usually they are created at a young age when the mind is wide open and very susceptible to anything with an emotional charge.

Even the small moments can turn out to be very influential. Moments like your first time up at bat at your first Little League game. Your parents, your brothers and sisters, and grandparents all came out to watch. You are very anxious to perform well, and you strike out! In this moment, this info gets stored as usable data in the subconscious. Now as an adult when this pattern shows up, when we feel we need to perform in some social setting, we refer back to the stored information of that bad little league game.  When this information has an anxious charge to it, when we remember the shame or embarrassment, we responded in an anxious manner.

How Hypnosis Helps

The subconscious is the place where all our behaviors are stored. It makes sense to address these problems where they live through hypnosis. We can return to the origin of the discomfort and remedy that situation. Once identified, neutralizing techniques are applied. Then the subconscious code is rewritten, and the anxiety disappears. 

It is very possible to walk into a hypnosis session feeling one way and leaving feeling completely different. Once the root cause of the issue is identified and neutralized, the problem no longer exists. There’s no longer a reason for the anxiety to be there. An anxiety free life is possible.

Letting Go of Anxiety


Anxiety Treatments Often Don’t Work

Anxieties are misunderstood. Many treatments for Anxiety are just that, treatments. Anxiety is believed to be a chronic never ending cycle, that cannot be overcome, that have to be managed. Most fixes for this are very long therapies or medication. These approaches wouldn’t be so bad if the medication actually just made that anxiety go away or the therapy worked to improve your day to day. Unfortunately much of the medication does little to help while robbing the color out of your world, removing your highs and lows. In some cases, this is a needed relief but still not an answer; it's just a Band-Aid.

Anxiety & Fear

Anxiety generally has a fear-based origin. These fears often cause imbalances in the chemistry in the mind, which in turn adds to the problem. These fears that get stuck in the mind have an origin--a point where that fear got wired into your thinking, impacting your body’s chemistry.

Hypnosis Stops Anxiety

However, if something has a beginning, it also has an end. Through the process of hypnosis, these hidden fears can be uncovered, and once the origin of these fears is realized and neutralized, they no longer hold any power, and the anxiety disappears forever. Anxiety isn’t a lifelong condition. It’s often a misunderstanding or and irrational thought that somehow got stuck in the mind.  This makes sense when you realize that most of these ideas are developed at a young age. Often young minds cannot rationalize a given situation completely. Misunderstandings are recorded and stored in the subconscious. So even as adults we refer back to this recorded data collected by our six year old selves and their limited understanding of the wider world. 

You may be wondering how this is possible. When you are in hypnosis, your subconscious is open; in this state with the proper guidance, you can find the hidden emotional memory that is triggering anxiety. Once found, change can be made, and the code of the subconscious can be rewritten. The end result is that one has no more anxiety. The important thing to remember is that you were not born with anxiety--there is a reason for it that can be corrected.

The mind is very sensitive, complex electrical system. If there is an emotion stuck somewhere, it can throw off the harmony distorting the chemical structure. We’re not meant to be anxious, constantly stuck in flight or fight mode; we no longer live in a society where we can be killed at any moment.  Anxiety doesn’t serve you. There’s no reason to hold on to anxiety any longer.

Why Do You Punch?


Archery & Punching

Why do we punch the release? For most of us, we were never taught not too. A lot of individuals have stepped into the archery world without proper instruction. This creates habits that can be hard to break, but that isn’t the only reason punching happens.  

Sometimes we feel like we NEED to punch the release. You’re at full draw your pin is now in the yellow, and your hand automatically sets the release aid off. Often people who do this will say, this is just the way I shoot. There is no thought involved when that shot goes off; it really is just how you do things.  At this point, most likely you will receive friendly advice from your friends or a coach that’s floating around. They tell you don’t punch the release, let it go off. This is great advice, but the question is if punching just happens without your conscious control, how do you fix it? This task seems monumental. Most people try to find a way to punch it in a controlled fashion, and we all know this will only take you so far.  Other people will switch to a new release trying a hinge or back tension release instead of a button only to find they can jerk that to activate it too. Starting an unending hunt for the perfect release that leads to having seven different ones in your bag. But the real question we must address is where this NEED to punch comes from in the first place?

The reason this punching happened has a lot to do with what information stored in your subconscious, quiet hidden experiences linked to anxious moments from our younger years. These hidden anxieties then show up in our shot execution. This is anxiety that we don’t realize we have. You may feel very calm and collected, and for the most part you are. But the act of releasing your shot triggers a pattern. Your mind recognizes this pattern and refers to the stored information in your mind and acts accordingly. The outcome is an anxious moment during your shot execution. This is why it only shows up during your shot, leaving you scrambling for answers. 

Fixing this problem can be done on the bale through repetition. But this will take a very long time and hundreds and hundreds of arrows. Plus, this solution often works in the short term only to eventually fail when the anxiety resurfaces. Through hypnosis, we can find the source of this anxiety and neutralize it utilizing hypnotic methods. Once it is neutralized, there is no reason for the anxious moment any longer. When the anxiety is gone, the need to punch will not be there. And the expensive hunt for the perfect release can end.  With some practice, you will be able to execute any type of release the proper way without an anxious punch. You can get back to just enjoying shooting, punch-free!

If this sounds like something that could help you, please call 732-406-3498 for a free phone consultation or to schedule your first appointment.

Why do Problems Show up in Archery?

All Goes Wrong8.png

Why do problems in archery show up? You may be having a really good archery season, and then everything derails. Out of nowhere comes a problem. You may start punching your release, a slight hesitation emerges, or you find yourself suffering from a loss in focus.  When this happens, it's not Murphy’s Law. Most likely it is a familiar pattern or circumstance that triggers something the subconscious recognizes as a problem. This pattern connects with a situation or event that happened somewhere in your early days. This pattern that is revealed generally reveals a challenge you need to face. The subconscious wants to evolve and help you, so it takes this opportunity to fix the problem. 

This means that we are not victims of these random patterns and situations that show up. These problems are opportunities for us to take the next step in our archery evolution. Don’t look at them as a roadblock. If you see them in this new framework as an opportunity for growth, they won’t stop you or hold you back. Look at them as clues to the big mystery that mystery that is you.You are intricate and complex being, far more exquisite and detailed than you may currently know. Hypnosis offers a great method to look into this robust framework that makes you do what you do and behave the way you do.  Hypnosis lets you explore who you are as well as where you want to be.

Other systems out there view these situations as problems that need to be managed, teaching you tools and tricks to live with the issue. Hypnosis instead offers solutions to these situations by eliminating them where they live in the mind, eliminating the need for the constant management or further struggle. 

Even the word management implies work the word even feels heavy.  We all know the perfect shot has nothing to do with work. The perfect shot that we have all experienced is effortless. When it happens, we are often surprised, and at the same time, we just enjoy the feeling of being in the flow. To me, this is what it’s all about: creating a moment. Not doing all kinds of laborious work to maybe get the result occasionally. Through Hypnosis once the subconscious is cleaned up and free of all self-imposed obstacles, your shot becomes much easier and more repeatable. This is the hypnotic advantage.

Once the debris is no longer there, you can perform at a much higher level using much less effort. This frees you up to refocus that extra energy back into your shot, which opens new levels of performance.

Fighting the Problem Where It Starts: Hypnosis & Target Panic


When it comes to archery, we all know our equipment makes a difference. But the quality of our minds also plays an important role. I’ve often heard people say that Archery is 90% mental. This is true. Once we transcend technique, form, and the shot becomes somewhat automatic, our subconscious mind is engaged. This is a good thing!  We want to be able to execute this way. But when we are utilizing the subconscious mind, the disharmony that resides there comes to the surface and takes on many forms that can interrupt our ability to shoot at the highest levels.

One form is target panic. Target Panic can show up as a yip at full draw when we’re about to execute the shot. It can show up as competition anxiety. You know feeling sick on shooting day or shaking uncontrollably on the line. Some people may snap shoot, or do the reverse and not be able to let go of the string, drawing down over and over. Other forms are holding low or not being able to hold center. This can be somewhat strange because you cannot keep your pin or dot in the center, it floats off in any kind of crazy direction it wants too.

When this anxiety shows up, it’s no fun to shoot. This can change a passion into a dread.

 We often think that this is a tuning problem or a form issue, and sometimes it is. But a lot of the time, it’s not the equipment or how you shoot. Once we have exhausted these possibilities, our focus turns to negative inward thinking: “there’s something wrong with me. I am just not good enough.” This is not true.

I’m sure someone could separate these problems into different categories, but I see them all as subconscious debris. I place all these things under the title of target panic. These are all problems that keep us from performing at our best when in front of a target. The simple truth is these anxieties don’t come from shooting a bow. They are not related to archery at all. You can’t develop target panic from shooting a bow; it is born at a different moment, and the archer just highlights it.  This anxiety often comes from a situation or misunderstanding in your early days. This problem was always; there just dormant until it was awakened by the process of shooting a bow.  This is why it can’t be fixed on a bale or with a new bow or a new coach.  It needs to be fixed where the problem starts in your subconscious mind.  Hypnosis has the answer.

Putting the Pieces Together: Reclaiming Your Potential with Hypnosis


Hypnosis & Achievement

We all are born with all the potential we are ever going to need. So what happens why do we find ourselves in a position of lack, feeling like we don’t have enough, that we aren’t good enough, and that we can’t get where we want to go. This is puzzling, but the answer is we don’t have to find the root cause of our roadblocks; we have to uncover it. Everything we need to succeed is all there waiting for us; we just need to get out of our own way to claim our birthright.

But why are we in our own way? Life is full of challenges, and some of these challenges leave us with scars and ideas about  the world. These scars and ideas form patterns that guide our reactions to certain situations or events. We hold onto these ideas so tightly for different reasons. Reasons like fearing not being good enough, having low self-esteem and being locked in by a fear of change. Eventually though, you need to push past these fears and limiting beliefs; these ideas don’t serve us in the way we want them too—especially when we are trying to grow and excel in new ways. Change can be scary. Our old patterns fight against growth, and when it’s time to shed these old fears and concepts, it can be very difficult or overwhelming.

Hypnosis Helps You Change Patterns of Behavior

This is where hypnosis can help. All these ideas, concepts and traumas are resting in your subconscious.  These old ideas or stories keep us from utilizing our potential. They hold us back. They make us feel small and play small.

Hypnosis can help find the hidden concepts and ideas that keep you stuck. Most of the time we don’t know what these stories are that keep us from being the person we are.  They can be tiny misunderstandings imprinted in our early childhood.

Once the subconscious is cleaned up, you will be able to unlock all of the potential you have. Becoming that person the one who masters their craft, has fulfilling relationships, achieves their personal goals.

Reclaim your Potential with Hypnosis

So if you feel like you’re being held back by some unseen force that forces you, reclaim your potential at Pure Space Hypnosis. Call 732-406-3498 for a free phone consultation or to schedule your first appointment.

Adding Hypnosis to Your Archery Game


 Hypnosis in the United States is not very well known. In other countries, it’s very popular. As far as hypnosis in sports, it’s under-utilized.  Some people don’t even believe in it—they associate it with sideshows and magicians.  And yes, the truth is that it won’t work for everyone--the individual has to be willing, want to change, and give themselves permission to do so. 

Once this permission is given, some of the hardest problems that people suffer from can disappear. Problems like anxiety, target panic, low self-esteem, negative self-talk. Hypnosis can find the root cause of the problem and neutralize it. Then these many problems can disappear.

So the point I’m trying to make is that there are problems that lie within your subconscious sometimes we don’t even know that they’re there. They show up in our behaviors when you shoot. Introducing hypnosis in your game can clean up the subconscious mind eliminating the mental problems that hold you back, improving your game tremendously.  But the question is—what can you do if you want to add hypnosis and improve your mental training plan?

How to Get Started With Hypnosis

The first thing is to set up a free phone consultation. This way I can determine whether you are a candidate for hypnosis and whether your problem is mental or physical/form issue.  Then, we will explore your mental game, finding out your current strengths and what isn’t working.

Once the problems are identified, a custom plan will be made for you. This plan will not be about managing whatever problem you have or giving you techniques to find your way around it. This is about eliminating the stories and problems that exist as roadblocks to your success—getting rid of the mental conditioning that holds you back, so there is no need for management. This is where hypnosis differs from all other mental game programs. Once the psychological issues are resolved, your training will get easier your scores will get better, unlocking new potential in your game.

If you are ready to stop managing the problems and start solving the problem, call Pure Space today at 732-406-3498.


Getting Started with Archery Hypnosis: The Next Steps


Archery as a Mental Game

In the archery world, the mental aspect of this sport is critical. Archery is a process of self mastery. When we shoot our bows, we are exercising our mastery of physical skills, while utilizing the full potential of our mental capabilities.  We strive to create sameness in body and mind. Winning tournaments is a byproduct of this.

Once you begin to understand how the mind influences our behaviors and how it can keep you from achieving what you want, we can learn how to use it toward our advantage. 

Hypnosis Helps Archers

This brings us to how hypnosis works. Through hypnosis, we can fix what doesn’t work—the roadblocks in our thinking that keep us from creating sameness and relaxed, repeatable archery form. Cleaning up the subconscious brings us to a point of peak mental performance.

With the mind cleared, we can tap in to the hidden champion with in you and bring forth the master, the whole person the one who trusts in their shot. The one with no doubts and no anxiety, the person that is completely confident in their sport and ability to execute clean shots. Hypnosis can introduce you to your inner champion, helping you to get your mind in the game and ready for all circumstances. We can use hypnosis to unlock your potential, helping you be the dominating force that you already are on the inside.

All Work And No Play: How To Enjoy Archery Again


All work and no play. We are all familiar with the feeling when something we love gets turned in to “job.”

This can ruin your archery performance.

When we work to hard at anything, the joy can get sucked out of whatever we are doing. After a long time of struggle, the concept of hanging up the game is in the forefront of our minds. Even though we love the sport and once had tremendous passion for it, that is now replaced by frustration. In this moment, we reflect back to the time when it was all exciting whenever everything clicked, when it all just seemed easier. Knowing that to be good at something, we have to work at it, we keep pushing. We work harder and try everything. New equipment, endless drills, new coaches, all in hopes of getting our archery groove back. Then your new coach says your form looks good and finishes with: just shoot more. This can be so frustrating! This is not the answer.

Sometimes the problems that are showing up have nothing to do with equipment or practice, the problem is in the mind, our mental game. 

 When we reach this point and ask the question many of us ask is should I walk away? The answer  is no. Hypnosis can solve these problems. Problems with anxiety, target panic, competition performance, low self-esteem, a loss of motivation, being okay with winning—anything that crops up and robs you of the joy of the sport. Once you correct these hidden road blocks that are tucked away in your mind, you can experience the fun and enjoy archery once more, taking the work out of your practice and competition.

Hypnosis is the answer! It gives archers an actual way to work on the mental components of the mind that don’t support our dreams and goals, the unseen stuff that keeps us off the podium and from loving our sport.

Pure Space offers sessions both online and in person. To find out more, call for a free phone consultation at 732-406-3498.

The Hypnosis Advantage: Breaking Through Plateaus


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.

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.

Buck Fever


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.

Call Pure Space today to see if hypnosis can help you get your brain ready for your next hunting trip: 732-406-3498.

Afraid to Win: Using Hypnosis to Change The Game


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.

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.

The Mental Game: Archery & Hypnosis


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.

Getting What You Want


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


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


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.
