Calming surgery fears, creating healing thoughts, and eliminating anxiety.
“I did three different hypnosis sessions with Priya that included three recordings. I scheduled the first session with her when I was diagnosed with colon cancer and I had learned that I had to have surgery. I was understandably very scared, and I was looking for ways to ease my anxiety and keep away negative thoughts. During our appointment she asked me many questions about myself, my goals, my fears, and my hopes, in addition to giving me a detailed questionnaire, which she helped me fill it out. We revised it together to make sure all the information was as accurate as possible, and we agreed on a few affirmations that would be used during the hypnosis recording (affirmations are positive short sentences that we repeat many times during the session).
My first hypnosis recording was about keeping myself calm and preparing mentally for the surgery. It prompted me to visualize how my body would react to the procedure, how calm I was going to be during it, and how I was going to help my body heal. I listened to the recording daily for a few weeks. I believe the hypnosis was crucial to my state of mind, because I was remarkably calm during the days leading to the surgery. My doctor, family, and friends were really impressed with my tranquil attitude.
Having a cancer diagnosis is frightening, and adding a relatively risky surgery on top of that is terrifying. For her to not only remove that fear, but also give me the serenity I never thought I had, was nothing short of incredible. I wouldn’t have been able to go through that challenging time without her support.
Afterwards she did a recording for the healing process. It centered on thinking about how I was going to heal, tapping into my inner strength, and thinking about how my body would be functioning perfectly. I listened to it on a daily basis for many weeks.
The last session and recording happened many months after the surgery. I started having signs of a panic attack, and it was so bad I thought I was going to die. I couldn’t function and I had difficulty breathing. But the first time I heard the recording Priya made to help, I've never had another panic attack again. It was that powerful. Even today when I’m not feeling well or I need a boost, I go back to the recording for that positive thinking and messaging to the subconscious mind.
Priya has a special gift. She’s a healer, and she’s clearly doing this because her mission is to help people, and you can feel that. Her heart and soul are 100% on it.
I wonder sometimes why her hypnosis was so successful, and I believe her approach worked not only because it was custom made for me, but because I was completely open to it. At first, I had to try very hard to focus and concentrate, but over time it became easier as I practiced it. Before my experience with Priya, I could have never even meditate before, not even for a minute. Now, even as an energetic person that I am, I can calm myself down and redirect my thoughts on my own. So if I can do this, anyone can."
