I often recommend, to my clients, a Mindfulness Meditation practice to strengthen their awareness of themselves, especially when they are concerned they cannot go under QHHT hypnosis easily. And, here's why:
The promises of a mindfulness meditation practice are well documented. From less stress, sleeping better and a lower incidence of a whole range of mental health conditions, mindfulness has been presented as a silver bullet that can make a difference to many of the problems in our modern lives.
But mindfulness is so much more than this. It’s so much more than a prescription, to be taken once or twice a day, to cure our ills. A mindfulness practice is a way of life that can utterly transform us, changing the way we see our minds, ourselves and the world around us.
And that’s where the real benefit comes in.
Mindfulness changes how you relate to the mind
Developing a mindfulness meditation practice can fundamentally change how you view the goings on inside your own mind.
In the first instance, mindfulness meditation makes you more aware of what is going on in your mind. It allows you to get a clear picture of how busy the mind really is. It helps you to see clearly the kinds of thoughts you are carrying with you.
It also allows you to get a clearer picture on your emotional life. How does the mind respond when something doesn’t go your way and a powerful emotion takes over? In what ways does the mind fuel these emotions? Regular mindfulness meditation brings clarity. It helps us to see the mind as it really is.
It also helps us to realise that our thoughts and emotions are here one moment and gone the next. As we pay attention to the mind, we realise that nothing is permanent. Everything changes. And so we can begin to hold less tightly to our thoughts and feelings in the moment.
It is only in seeing the mind as it really is that we can we begin to make positive changes to our inner world.
Mindfulness changes how you relate to yourself
All of this new information about how the mind works, and about your thoughts and emotional life, gives us a much deeper understanding of ourselves. It allows us to see more clearly what is going on in the mind and, with regular practice, it allows us to go deeper than the busyness of our thoughts, into a place of intuition and calm.
Many practitioners describe this experience of the mind using the analogy of the blue sky. Underneath the clouds, even on a cloudy day, the blue sky is always there. It's a bit like that with our thoughts. Some days there are less of them, and we can see the blue sky clearly. On other days the whole sky is dominated by clouds and we hardly even know that the blue sky is there at all.
A regular mindfulness meditation practice helps us to find acceptance. Acceptance that beneath our thoughts truly is a place of peace, a place of calm, and when we access this place we can live more intuitively and authentically. This doesn’t mean we chase the thoughts away. Instead we just wait for them pass, knowing that the blue sky is always there, right beneath the clouds.
For many people, this place within us, that exists beyond thought, is a deeply spiritual place. It is a place where we can access our truest self, our deepest wisdom about life and find guidance for the things in life that matter most. For some, this practice has allowed them to delve deeply into the imagination, accessing the multidimensional lives we live on other timelines.
Practicing mindfulness meditation, and carrying what you have learned in meditation out into your everyday life, allows you to live in a way that is more in tune with this deeper awareness, this true self. And this can be spiritually liberating for many.
Mindfulness changes how you relate to the world
A regular mindfulness practice also transforms the way in which we relate to the world. By drawing us into living life on a deeper and more intuitive level, we become less reactive.
Many mindfulness meditation practices begin with setting an intention for the practice and identifying who this practice will benefit beyond yourself. There are many ways in which those around us will benefit from our mindfulness practice. Those closest to us will benefit from the greater sense of calm that we experience as a result of regular mindfulness practice, but they also benefit from our greater ability to be present in the moment.
We live in a highly distracted age. There is always somewhere else to be or something else to do. Technology allows us to connect with anyone at any time. Our full attention, then, is one of the most precious things that we can give to anyone. Mindfulness practices helps us to strengthen the muscle of presence. It allows us to really be where we are and our relationships are often all the stronger for it.
Mindfulness practice can transform our relationship with the natural world. By being more present we begin to notice our surroundings so much more. And in noticing, we are much more likely to access our authenticity and experience feelings of genuine gratitude. Our gratitude for what we have, and the beauty of the world around us, can be a powerful driving force to protect our world and care for it.
When we regularly practice mindfulness, and become more in tune with that which matters most to us, we are more able to prioritize what really matters. We are able to work in the world for meaningful change, whether that is in the form of caring for others or caring for our beautiful planet.
We could easily enter into a mindfulness practice simply to gain the benefits that are so often talked about of an improvement to our wellbeing and mental health. And these are great goals to have.
But mindfulness practice offers us so much more. It offers us a way to connect deeply with ourselves and with the world. It gives us a simple way to begin to understand the inner workings of our mind and to access our intuition and wisdom.
From this place we can make intentional decisions about what matters most to us and how we spend our time and energy. We can live life in a wholly different way.
That is the true benefit of mindfulness.

Previously we discussed the divine creator birthright everyone possesses. This inborn sovereignty empowers us to be whomever we choose, living whatever life we choose. Whether defined by the choices we make day to day or lifetime to lifetime, we are the sum of both our conscious and unconscious decisions. It’s important to keep in mind, unconscious does not mean incoherent. In this case, unconscious refers to choices we make in a state of disconnect from our higher selves or higher consciousness. As such, unconscious is any decision we make that does not align with the highest good and our greatest purpose. Whereas conscious choices are aligned with the path of self-actualization and enlightenment.
There are many reasons why we default into states of unconsciousness. Often, unconsciousness is triggered by the reactionary lower self trying to avoid perceived threats or the ego-self trying to defend its fragile façade. However, some mechanisms exist outside of us that also promote unconsciousness. Starting in childhood, parents encourage children not to question their elders, and the educational system rewards rote learning while devaluing the dissemination of information. This left-brained thinking lays the groundwork for mainstream conditioning, continually reinforced by the media and social networking sites.
Throughout the lifelong indoctrination process, we are threatened or punished through harsh judgment and criticism, shame, and alienation if we dissent. The message becomes clear: questioning the status quo, challenging the majority, and thinking for yourself is abhorrent and detrimental to personal and professional success.
Why is it so important to uphold this pervasive belief? Because those who question inspire others to question, and when enough of us question, we either call for or instigate change. What is so dangerous about change? Change threatens the mental and spiritual matrix we are imprisoned by. Change can topple the fragile societal institutions, bodies, and leaders that reign while we are unconscious and spiritually asleep. And as long as we are sleeping, we will not enter the 5th dimension, a state of unity, love, and equality where each individual can govern themselves and think for themselves in alignment with their greatest purpose and the highest good of all.
This is why each of us must recapture our own power. It is time to step into your sovereign role as architect of your destiny. The first step is to assume responsibility for all your choices, conscious and unconscious. Although this can seem like a heavy burden, it is much more oppressive to carry the unserving beliefs, perspectives, and others’ expectations! In fact, the weight of the responsibility is best thought of as a foundation, not heavy on your shoulders, but solid under your feet. From this foundation, you gain stability, strength, an enduring sense of self, and purpose. It is firm ground from which to ascend toward enlightenment.
Initially, it can be challenging to conceptualize the infinite nature of your existence and the limitless power of your soul. A QHHT session can help you connect to your higher self, the aspect of yourself that has been present for all your choices, both conscious and unconscious. A QHHT practitioner can facilitate a conversation between you and your higher self. This can allow you to draw the connection between where you are, where you’ve been, and where you are going, recognizing and reclaiming the divine authority you have exercised to make it so.
Assuming sovereignty over your own existence is not without challenges. You may face ostracization and alienation and therefore have to walk away from relationships and circumstances that no longer align with your higher consciousness and purpose. While you risk losing friends, leaving jobs, and feeling like an outlier from the mainstream, this pales in comparison to the personal power, freedom, and fulfillment you will derive from living a life of truth, purpose, and of your own design.

They say, when we dream of a home, all that transpires is a reflection of how we view our own inner experience. Moving ahead with this perspective, let’s explore the blueprints!
The lower self is much like an unfinished basement. We store things like fear, anger, heartache, all our emotional childhood experiences. This lower aspect of self is highly reactionary and defensive, acting as a victimized, entitled, dependent, controlling, or otherwise maladaptive foundation for our behavior. We are accountable for renovating our energetic basement during this lifetime, clearing out baggage, and inviting in the light.
The main floor of the house represents the ego-self. It is the part of us that people encounter. We decorate it and keep it presentation ready. Why? Because we don’t want to be judged for having the poor taste or being untidy. The ego is built upon and empowered by judgment. The primary ego needs are meeting external and internal expectations and being deemed “more” than others; more attractive, intelligent, successful, compassionate, or “spiritual.”
Lastly, envision a refuge at the top of the house, but no ordinary attic. This is a sky loft with a beautiful skylight, filling it with illumination and a fresh breeze that always stirs, keeping the air pure and clean. It is a retreat you don’t get to visit as often as you like because you are busy keeping up appearances on the main floor. When you do visit, you are replenished and renewed. Now ask yourself, even if this loft is the most blissful yet least accessed part of your home, is it any less a part of the structure?
The idea highlighted here is that the higher self, while expansive, pure, harmonious, and possessing profundity beyond description, is still a part of you. Commingling, for better or worse, with the lower self and ego. One of our primary undertakings this lifetime is to minimize the influence of the lower self, denying it control of the ego, designating power instead to the higher self, and teaching the ego to surrender to it. When this does not happen, the defensive, wounded lower self and the critical ego can lead us to assume the mantle of victimhood and helplessness.
You see, the lower self assumes the role of defending the ego from being rewounded. Fearful, the lower self tells the ego that threats are around every corner. Being humiliated, taken advantage of, or hurt is not a potentiality it is a certainty. Thus, the ego throws its hands up in the air, too afraid to take responsibility for its inevitable demise. Going through life hopeless, helpless, and apathetic.
There are also societal forces that take advantage of these listless souls. They are being ushered into the ignorant masses, who are too disinterested to call out the systemic façades and powerless to effectuate any real change. The matrix is thereby upheld by unconscious victims and those who fear accountability. These people are still imprisoned by the dank, dark basement of the lower self.
When we awaken to the truth that we can at once be the lower self, ego, and higher self, we can no longer remain ignorant to the facts about our society and our divine sovereignty. We must assume responsibility for reparenting the lower self, forfeiting egoic power, and accepting the omnipotence of the higher self, breaking free of systemic fallacies.
The seemingly trite adage, “with great power, comes great responsibility,” takes on weighty significance when you begin to recognize your role as a creator! Although the lower self, ego, and higher self comprise one being, victim and creator cannot! You cannot simultaneously create the personhood, experience, and outcomes you desire and remain a victim to them.
Unfortunately, some people are afraid to surrender the mantle of victimhood because they fear the accountability of creator is too much to bear. They are more comfortable viewing themselves as “other” to the higher self because the divine authority to protect, guide, heal, and manifest becomes their own.
The truth is while being a creator is a weighty undertaking, victimhood is more than a burden. It is a form of death, smothering life force and entombing your infinite potential. We can all benefit from looking at divine sovereignty as coming with a price that is far outweighed by its worth. Ultimately, it may be time to revamp the adage and instead declare, “with great responsibility, comes great power!”
In the next part of this series, we will be discussing the infinite nature of our creator power as multidimensional beings…

Free will is a divine gift that endows each and every one of us with our own inner divinity. While a great endowment, the freedom to choose means every day we must choose between conscious and unconscious acts, positive vibrations and negative, right and wrong.
Inevitably, some people will choose unconscious or willfully hurtful behavior, leaving you feeling hurt, betrayed, angered, or disappointed. Since free will is their divine birthright, you can do nothing to change them or their hurtful actions.
Don’t be mistaken! This does not mean you have no power and are left with no recourse. You have the same birthright of choice. Whether these painful circumstances were pre-destined, to help you learn and grow, or they are weaponized use of someone else’s free will, you get to decide whether you will build a staircase to ascension on them or let them drag you down like an anchor in a sea of emotions.
Though not the easiest path, the most constructive is to choose to cast off the mantle of victimhood and don the armor of victory. However, understand when you remain the victim, you are just as responsible for your path as choosing to be a victor. The hurt, helplessness, disempowerment of people who refuse to take responsibility for their own healing is their burden to carry. While it may seem like an injustice, there comes the point when the person who wounded them is no longer held accountable for the impact on the injured person’s life path.
The Road to Healing
If you choose to take back your power, bravo! Although it may be challenging spiritual work, you are more than capable of realigning yourself with your path and purpose. Keeping in mind that healing looks different for everyone, the following guide may help shape your journey of empowerment.
The first step in your healing journey is to accept that the other person may never acknowledge they’ve done anything wrong. Accepting that painful truth is essential because it gives you back your power. If you can’t rely on them to right the wrongs, you will seek your own resolution.
In the “light and love” society we live in, there tends to be a lot of spiritual and emotional bypassing. You must give yourself permission to feel all your feelings, including anger. It is only by facing your hurt that you will be able to release it- you can’t clean out the basement without unpacking it first!
Once you have explored your pain, there is no need to linger there. Focus on the present. That is where your healing takes place, after all. You may want to come up with a healing affirmation to reorient you to your present and purpose, such as “I am present, I am powerful, I am progressing” or any other easy-to-remember positive declarations.
Above all, be gentle with yourself! Perhaps you will find release in journaling, discussing (not dumping!) the events with a trusted friend or counselor, or seeking therapies like QHHT to dive deeper into the wisdom underlying your pain. Treat yourself like a dear friend, showing yourself compassion because we are all works in progress.
Remember, “you can be a work in progress and a masterpiece simultaneously!”

As children, we are told we are athletic, or intelligent, rambunctious, or precocious. We are also taught what beliefs are good and what beliefs are bad, what careers are admirable, and which aren't, who to trust, and who we can't. Ultimately, we are taught what labels to apply to ourselves, our lifestyle choices, principles, and others'. As we mature, we adopt these beliefs as our own. These perceptions are often reinforced in subtle yet constant ways depending on what media we subject ourselves to and the people we surround ourselves with.
In some ways, labels serve us, helping us to process things quickly, navigating life with greater expediency. Yet, in many more ways, labels perpetuate the limiting beliefs that negatively impede our potential, growth, understanding, and most importantly, our ascension.
The concept of conscious creation suggests that our external experience is dictated by our internal experience, particularly our thoughts. Many people walk the world unconsciously, not knowing how they perceive the world is not as it is but as they have been conditioned to see it. For example, if we have been indoctrinated into believing that the world is frightening, we manifest a terroristic human experience. If we have been conditioned to view ourselves as vulnerable and helpless, we will perceive ourselves as victims and attract experiences in which we are victimized. Makes the adage, "what you think, you create" even more poignant, doesn't it?
Don't mistake this wisdom for admonishment. We are not to blame for our unconscious beliefs. From birth, we are conditioned by parents, teachers, peers, and the media. This programming we are subjected to is unconscious because it is such a universal experience. The unconscious nature means these limiting beliefs quickly become "just the way things are," a deeply ingrained part of who we are. Whether they serve us or not, are true or false, they go unnoticed and therefore unchecked.
Supported by automatic cognitive processes, the best way to rid ourselves of deleterious beliefs is to stop the mind's unconscious, ceaseless chatter. Even if this break in idle thoughts is momentary, when we can practice presence, we can observe our thoughts. By attending to our thoughts, we reawaken to the realization that we are not our thoughts, just as we are not our bodies or our emotions. You see, what makes you unique, what invigorates your eternal essence is your soul, and what gives this life significance is your soul's progression.
By acknowledging this otherness from our thoughts, we have already begun the process of changing them. By simply being more mindful, we develop the ability to perceive the beliefs that align with us and our higher purpose and those that do not. When we interrupt the automatic thoughts fed by conditioned beliefs, we experience a glimpse of the world as it is, beyond the veil, outside of the matrix. With time, these brief moments of clarity become more expansive until you view life as it is in totality as opposed to what you've been programmed to believe it is.
How Quantum Healing Hypnosis Technique Can Help
Given the precept of conscious creation, each individual must hold themselves accountable, not for having conditioned beliefs but for freeing themselves from them. Because whether we choose to remain imprisoned by our limiting beliefs or not, we are each responsible for the outcome of our individual life paths and the choices we make along the way. Ultimately, taking the road of freedom, enlightenment, and ascension is a choice.
Once you have made that choice, QHHT can facilitate a deep dive into your subconscious, exploring depths that would otherwise be inaccessible. This is done by bypassing the nattering of the "conscious" mind. With the assistance of your higher self, which has an omniscient understanding of who you are and who you are meant to be, a practitioner connects you to your subconscious, enabling you to confront your conditioning and social programming.
A parable tells of a baby elephant tethered to a stake and chain that he is too small to break free of. Over his juvenile years, he tries to break free to no avail. In adulthood, he is strong enough to break free but no longer attempts it as he has been conditioned to believe escape is futile. In this way, a QHHT practitioner can help liberate you from a prison you never knew existed, helping you find a way of BEING that you always hoped did. It is time to break free!

Growing up, our parents or primary guardians seemed larger than life. They could tackle any task, answer any question, and do no wrong. In a child’s eyes, the adults that nurse them when they are sick, help them navigate the world, and shower them with love, are perfect. As we grow out of the ages of innocence, we may start to perceive of the humanity of our guardians. Imperfect, questioning, wounded, and in need of healing. It is difficult for some when they realize that their parents are human and fall short of their ideal of what a parent should be.
It is often not until we are older or parents ourselves that we can fully embrace the fallibility of our parents with grace and compassion. Though for some, this understanding is hard to find, and no matter how pure and well-meaning their parents’ intentions are, their children feel resentment, heartache, or spitefulness towards the people they once so idolized.
This manner of viewing elders and caregivers from childhood is often encouraged. Viewed as respectful and considered a sound way to model qualities that children should aspire to, putting our parents on a pedestal is a dynamic that we are conditioned to accept.
As we grow, we may adopt the same way of viewing all adults, superiors, and advisors. In school, we may idolize our teachers and coaches. We emulate and aspire to be like our more successful counterparts, managers, and bosses in the professional world. When we seek guidance and healing from counselors, therapists, and lightworkers, we also raise them up on a pedestal of reverence and admiration.
In fact, the more spiritual an individual’s purpose or vocation, the more we tend to revert to the conditioned response of idolization. Just as we did with our parents in our youth, we encumber our spiritual teachers, healers, and mentors with high expectations based on our own idealized versions of who we think they should be. This idealized version is often a projection of who we think we should be or who we believe these lightworkers are supposed to help us become.
Some believe there are benefits to viewing lightworkers and spiritual healers in this way. Often, by painting the mentor with the brush of projection, it enables us to better visualize who we wish to become. The idealized guide can serve as an inspiration, motivating transformation, because “if they can do it, so can I.”
Yet, like our parents, lightworkers are fallibly human. They are their own works in progress, seeking healing from wounds and trauma and illumination along their path of enlightenment. Unfortunately, this humanity is often overlooked. Then again, who can see it when they are so high aloft the pedestals they have been placed on. Sadly, when they fall short of our projections of perfection, they are villainized. This villainization is rooted in the same resentment, heartache, and disappointment of our youth when confronted by our parents’ imperfection. Instead of being a reflection of our hopes and dreams, the lightworker becomes a projection of our unhealed wounds.
As unfortunate as the whole dynamic sounds, it can serve as an opportunity for healing. When these wounds rise to the surface to be slung resentfully at our parents, healers, guides, mentors, and leaders, we can instead use them to reawaken to our divine purpose of release, renewal, and enlightenment. When these people “let us down,” it is often because they “fail” to possess qualities that we wanted to see in others or manifest within ourselves. It is essential to ask ourselves how we can be the embodiment of who we long for others to be, how can our journey of self-actualization help us grow into the people we have always needed.
We are on the precipice of transformational times and ascending the matrix. It is more critical than ever that we must be who we need for ourselves. While it can be encouraging to grow with others and motivating to be inspired by others, we must learn to follow our own path, trust our own intuition, and manifest our own growth.
It is time to embrace your own sovereignty! Shake free from the doubt and the fear of not having all the answers. The time is now to turn the same faithful trust you held in your parents, or the lightworkers you’ve encountered, inward. Trust yourself and the journey even if you don’t have all the answers because no one does. After all, the whole reason for your journey is to discover them!

Let’s begin with an exercise. Say to yourself, I am, and then your first and last name. “I am Mary Smith,” for example. What comes to mind when you reflect on who that is? Are you reminded of your accomplishments, your obligations, material possessions, public persona?
Now, say to yourself, I am and your first name. “I am Mary,” for example. What comes to mind when you reflect on who that is? Are you reminded of your hobbies, likes, and dislikes, how your friends and family perceive you?
Now, say to yourself, I am, with no qualifier. What comes to mind when you reflect on who that is, absent of the assumptions of others, temporal circumstances, past experiences, and future responsibilities. A challenging concept to grasp for those who have never attempted to do so before. Those who return to this practice routinely through mindfulness or meditation find it profoundly liberating, empowering, and calming.
Constructs like, I’m Mary, and I’m a realtor, married, afraid, affiliated “x” political party, or believe in “x” religion are limiting and burdensome. They suppress our inner divinity and true spiritual nature, distracting us from our higher purpose and path to awakening. Constructs hinder our ability to escape the matrix and socially determined concepts of reality that leave us blind to more high vibrational mindsets and perspectives.
When we define our personhood by the organizations, religions, politics, or groups who claim to share our worldviews, we limit ourselves to the standards or qualities we believe these factions represent. There are times when we must proclaim allegiance, take vows, agree to contracts, or otherwise commit to these sects, placing further restrictions on our possibilities and opportunities for growth. Every affiliation becomes a negotiation between what parts of ourselves and our divine path we must forfeit to belong and uphold the values and world schemas of others.
Interpersonal relationships are no different. When we fail to focus on the “I am” removed from extraneous constructs, we further limit ourselves and our ability to manifest our own reality built upon our values, principles, and higher calling. When we are dutiful to whatever our relational status or our relational selves say about who we are, we fall short of who the divinity of the universe believes we can aspire to be and eventually become.
At its core, it is an issue of the temporal versus eternal nature of who we are. All of the utterances of who we are, our identity with friends, colleagues, spouses, families, and ourselves are primarily based on temporal likes, dislikes, experiences, and future projections. This construct-based “I am” is limited to this lifetime, this year, this moment. The great “I am,” absent of constructs, contracts, and allegiances, is eternal. It connects us to the soul we have always been and will ever be. It is our infinite existence from one life to the next and one dimension to the next. This is why when we meditate on the singular “I am,” we are free, empowered, and peaceful.
When we embody this limitless spirit, we can relinquish our labels, constructs, and temporal identities without fear. A fear rooted in the belief that these limiting qualifiers make us who we are, give life meaning, and define our purpose. Those who cling to this belief think that these constructs are the glue that binds together the individual parts of our identity.
What actually unifies our collective pieces into the amalgamation of who we are is our endless stream of consciousness. This stream of consciousness is the essential “I am.” It is a river fed from the current of the universal unconscious that connects us all to the bottomless ocean of the divine. In full awareness and acknowledgment of their eternal nature, we can move forward freely to heal, learn, grow, and thrive as both a vessel and conduit of love and abundance.
