Eyes Open, Wide Awake!!
Rev. Dr. Betsie H. Poinsett

Eyes Open, Wide Awake!??? Those words are the mantra of the hypnotherapist. As I watch my clients slowly open their eyes many of them say, "No, don't wake me up, I want to stay in that wonderful deep state much longer." I always laugh and tell them that is what every client wants to do - stay in that altered state for as long as possible.

I think back to the hundreds of cases I have facilitated, one client told me that my session was the equivalent to seven massages. I was most honored that he felt that way. Another wanted to meet her Spirit Guides and find out their names. I didn't even know "my" guides names, so the night before I talked to them and asked. I was told "Mordecai!" Mordecai I said in disbelief, what a weird name. Can't I have a guide named Michael, or Gabriel? Then I researched Mordecai and found that he was a very very special biblical figure and I was delighted to have him as a guide. The next day my client was able to meet one of her guides, a female named Gladys, who shared a lot of information that helped us understand the soul contract she had chosen for this lifetime. Introducing people to their angels and guides is one of my favorite things to do in a session.

Other sessions are for more "earthly" issues: Passing Bar Exams, Real Estate Tests, High School Equivalency Tests (GED). Healing health issues such as pain, recovering from surgery, lowering blood pressure, and even childbirth.

I'm like a detective listening to every aspect of a client's presenting problem and then finding the deep core of the issue for healing. It seems to be my calling. I can remember as a young girl I was always curious about hypnosis. Recently I had my astrology chart done and right there in the chart it showed that I was BORN to be a hypnotherapist. It was wonderful to have this validation and confirms why I feel so energized after every session. I get just as much out of it as the client.

Hypnosis is not a game or a parlor trick. Working with the subconscious mind should be taken very seriously. It is 88% of our mind power, the "search engine" of all our beliefs and patterns. The conscious mind represents our logic and reasoning (willpower) and is just 12% or our mind power. Only a highly trained hypnotherapist should be trusted with helping people change these patterns. Always ask questions about a therapists training. My most recent client called me on the phone just to "feel my energy" and hear my voice before she decided to make an appointment. I thought that was very wise. Everyone should use discernment in choosing someone to work on them - not everyone has compatible energy.

Now remember, as we count upward from 0 to 5 you will find yourself feeling physically relaxed, emotionally calm and with a positive sense of well being. Eyes Open and Wide Awake, Wide Awake.

About the Author:

Dr. Betsie Poinsett is a qualified, experienced professional Clinical Hypnotherapist dedicated to helping people improve the quality of their lives through hypnotherapy. She was trained in Atlanta at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute, a subsidiary of HMI in California. Upon completion of over 600 hours of clinical residency, she was invited to join the staff of HMI and has been in private practice since 1990.

She became an Adept in Shamanism from the Institute of Shamanic Synthesis in Santa Fe, NM, studying under Shaman Amari Magdalena, who was a student of Don Miguel Ruiz author of the best selling book: The Four Agreements. Studying the works of John Randolph Price, founder of the Quartus Foundation and spending three years studying The Course in Miracles augmented her education. She incorporated this knowledge by becoming an Ordained Minister in the Universal Brotherhood Movement and in 2004 received her Doctorate in Divinity. Her mission is to unite people of all spiritual viewpoints using earth-based wisdom to experience more peace, harmony and beauty in their lives.

In 1997, Betsie’s 21 year-old son died, thus giving her a deep understanding of the grief process and the blessings available from the other side. Soon after he died she published a book called The Dragonfly Collection in his memory. In October 2001, Lee Carroll “Kryon” released his newest book, An Indigo Celebration. Betsie was honored to have her story and her son’s poetry used as the closing chapter of this informative book about the Indigo children.

Dr. Betsie H. Poinsett, C.Ht. is proud to announce the publishing of her first book

"Mothers Who Cry in The Night" is a heartwarming story of a mother who has learned to celebrate her child, even after his untimely death... to keep learning day after day from his wisdom.
