Can 2 5-minute bursts really help change your life?

Posted by:

We did 2 x 5-minute sessions and life will never be quite the same again . . . . . .

I had another one of those totally mind blowing and amazing: ‘Can it really be this easy’ breakthroughs and moments on my PhotoReading Workshop this weekend.  During the Bonus Belief Change Session on both the Friday and Saturday night I did a few minutes with a delegate who has always been unsure and lacking confidence in how they articulate themselves and come across to others.

The Belief Change Session is a mix of Huna, Access Consciousness, and some other yummy stuff that is designed to have clients release blockages, judgements, opposing thoughts or polarities, and beliefs that stop or block their progress.  All the client has to do is say “Yes” (literally just that one word) and then we’re good to go.

My PhotoReading delegates can either participate in the Belief Change process by throwing a few words into the pot to get the ball rolling, i.e., fear, anxiety, lack of confidence, feeling blocked, uncertainty, etc, or they can simply be in the energy of it all and experience the shifts and changes and transformations by virtue of being in the room and listening to others, a bit like ‘TranceFormation’ by osmosis; Something which those who took part in my Free Huna & Access Consciousness Belief Change Teleseminar Series last year experienced for themselves down that phone line.

(I don’t have any further Free sessions planned at the moment, but you can register your interest here for the possible summer sessions:

On the Sunday morning of the PhotoReading™ Workshop we do the ‘Good &/or New’ exercise where delegates share what has been good or new for them during the weekend, this particular delegate said:

“I woke up this morning, thought about my problem, shrugged my shoulders, laughed, and said what was I talking about?  What is that?  I could hear my own voice in my head throughout the evening and I was fine.  I couldn’t even think why I thought it was a problem or what I was talking about!”

She then fell about in fits of laughter and the group joined her and then gave her a spontaneous round of applause.

Laughter really is one of the best medicines!

This particular delegate had no knowledge of energy work, belief change stuff, and the usual things that I get up to so they were a little reserved and sceptical on the Friday night to say the least!

The day before, I’d shared a story with the group about a previous PhotoReading delegate who was so shy she would never speak to strangers, and even had trouble talking to her own family because of the way they made her feel. On the Sunday morning she came skipping into the PhotoReading Class having cheerily said good morning to several people on her journey there, and having had a great chat with a window cleaner. She also got home to find that for the first time ever she had great rapport with her family, and prior to that for the first time she enjoyed flying and laughed with a fellow passenger all the way home.

I know that I do this stuff all the time and that it really can be that quick when people are enveloped in the transformational energy of the environment that is created when I’m working however I still have to take a moment and go: “Really?  Wow!”

The power of accelerated change

I first became interested in accelerated lasting change when I properly stumbled into personal development back in October 2000 and was astounded that I went from feeling suicidal, to inspired and happy within the space of just 7 days.  As a result of that I gave up the ACCA Accountancy studies that I had embarked upon 2 years prior to became a Coach, Hypnotherapist, and NLP Trainer instead (and yes, several people did think that I’d lost my mind!)

Since that time 14 years ago, I have studied the field and constantly experimented with how to have people experience those transformations for themselves in a way that allows them to get what they might need to learn and then gives them that release and resolution with relative ease.

Prior to that I’d read various self help books over the years, listened to tapes (yes, they were tapes back in the day when I started!)  I had even done some counselling when things had gotten particularly bad when my partner had an affair.  All of that had still left me in a place of quiet desperation, right up until the age of 32.

When I discovered this accelerated world existed, I wanted to get out into the world and deliver something that really did what it said on the tin (I grew up in the days of the Ronseal TV ads!) . . . . . . . .

Ronseal.  It does exactly what it says on the tin!

A client who has just finished my TranceFormation™ Programme last week said:

“As for the TranceFormation Programme, it does what it does what says on the tin.  I am transformed.” 

A delegate who completed day 2 of my PhotoReading Workshop at the weekend said:

“Another amazing day!  So much more than what it says on the tin – as always with Marilyn Devonish.” x

My company is called TranceFormations, and it seems I am being reminded yet again that it really does do what it says on tin and that change and transformation really can happen in an instant when the right ingredients come together  . . . . . .

How do you get started?

There are a couple of key ingredients, namely:

  • An open mind
  • A willingness to change
  • The courage to voice your fears, shadows or challenges
  • Trust
  • The ability to observe your thoughts and challenge them if they no longer serve you

And of course to right tools for you to make those changes (and trust me there are 1001 things out there so one of them is bound to be right for you).  One of the reasons why I have studied and trained in so many modalities over the past 14 years (a few of them are mentioned below) is because I very quickly realised once I got into client practice that one size definitely didn’t fit all, and that someone’s ‘best thing since sliced bread’ approach was like stale old toast to someone else.

When you find the thing that is right for you, seeming miracles really can happen.

Happy TranceFormations!
