Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Welcome to this episode of the How to Choose happiness and freedom Show. I'm your host Lauren foster happiness teacher and founder of be happy first. And I'm so happy to have with me today one of my sister authors from the art and truth the transformation for women. Welcome Norio Lissa young hypnotherapist, and we're going to talk about so much magic today. Thank you for being here.

Nora Yolles Young:

Thank you, Lauren. It's fantastic to be here and share this space with you.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

I'm so very, very excited. You know, we were we were talking before about having a being able to share a link. And now that page has disappeared. So

Nora Yolles Young:

we'll just do it after totally fine. Yeah, it'll get out there.

Unknown:

Yeah, get out there.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

And I'm not very good at looking at comments and things like that. of people watching anyway, I get all immersed in the interview itself. And so

Nora Yolles Young:

I get it. That's more fun anyway. And, you know, we get to just have a conversation where we're sisters and similar tribes, we're in the book together. I mean, we have so much to connect and talk about and share.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Yes, we do. I'm so happy. So tell us, tell us about you. What were How did you wind up where you are? And what's your biggest love? right this minute?

Nora Yolles Young:

Oh, my gosh, so much. Um,

Unknown:

well,

Nora Yolles Young:

I'm a hypnotherapist. I'm a healer. And I'm now as you are a international best selling author in so contributing to this book, which was a fantastic experience. I'm also a coach. And so right now my focus is getting my work out there. Really, just helping people own their soul true. And getting to a place where they can really get to the place where they're they no longer need to be small. And they can just be who they really came here to be. Yeah, that's my passion.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Yeah, I love that in you. How beautiful would this world be if every single person understood that they were not created by accident? Oh, my gosh, we're all here for purpose, every single one of us.

Nora Yolles Young:

It's so true. And right now, man, my colleague, Jennifer Catlin, we're embarking on a study, researching womb regression, and not in a, they'll probably be some data that could be statistically analyzed. But really, we're doing these sessions with people as case studies to really create more of an understanding of the powerful work that happens in womb regression, or in utero up root in utero regression. That's why I say womb, because in utero does not flow really as easily. But what we find in that work is you can access your soul's intent from the womb. And so the implications of a soul knowing and having access to what their soul was intending before they even were conceived, is so powerful. And so we're looking at that whole gestational process and through to the actual birth into this current life. And it's really exciting. So we're, we're that I actually have my very first research client today, and we're going to be filming it, we're going to be recording these sessions. So get ready. There's gonna be some cool stuff coming out.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

That is so fascinating to me, all the all of the stuff you've read, everyone is familiar with my work is we're very much a now and forward type of movement here, I'd be happy person that, you know, we can't go back and fix those people. We can't go back and change those things. But what we can do is use that information to make a different choice moving forward. But having said that, I'm so fascinated by other people who do look at things in a different way. So go back even further before the womb, let's talk about what so it sounds to me like you believe that the soul is fully formed before it even makes the decision to come here as a human Is that right? Absolutely.

Nora Yolles Young:

Well and fully formed its relative, right? We're always expanding and growing as souls and and my work and my belief is that we are souls are interwoven with divine source, and they're sort of formulations of more and more focused. Content consciousnesses. And when So what makes Nora Nora is part of my soul, not even the whole aspect of my soul. That I'm having I'm a soul, I'm a spiritual being having a human experience and having a human experience, what we find is an intentional thing. Now we can get into the nuance of that and talk about, you know, just sort of not having a lot of intention as a soul or having a lot of focus intention.

Unknown:

But

Nora Yolles Young:

yeah, do you want me to talk a little bit about my history? And what brought me here? Or do you want me to just launch into the regression work and why it's so powerful, I could go in a million different directions,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

I really interests you, I really love that you you can share firsthand your own experience with visiting past lives and, and sort of the knowing of things that you experienced before you were nor and so I would, if you're, if you want to share that?

Nora Yolles Young:

Sure, sure. And, and in the anthology, I write about some of that insight that's come over time accessing past life information, integrating it into my life. And so that I think my chapter is the dark gives structure to the light. And what that talks about is our shadow work and how accessing past lives where I was not the most high integrity, character, and characters, nourished my understanding of my work and my activism as a person who works with uplifting the consciousness of the planet, here. And so just having access to who I was I, you know, I want I want you to read the chapter. But needless to say, it's some pretty dark stuff, and coming into the awareness of knowing a different version of me, but still, knowing that it's me, is a pretty weird experience. And but that's why this work is so powerful, because it's your remembering an aspect of self that is undeniable. And sometimes in hidden note in hypnosis, or going back, there's not 100% certainty, but there is that experience where you can access true awareness that is yours. And we don't you know, in the hypnotherapy community, some people wonder, well, is this made up? Or is this? Or is this actual fact. And so there are many instances where things can be verified historically, where people remember past lives, where they remember names and dates and dynamics that are playing out and the characters that are in those lifetimes, and they're literally verifiable. Historically, that happened to me when I was the practitioner in a training to become a life between lives practitioner, and the client was a what wasn't me Sorry, it was one of the other students. This happened when the professor not the professor, but the trainer came in and said this was a sign this was a historically verified fact that one of the students had gone back to a lifetime during the Revolutionary War, and set a name and said dates and details. And it was verified that he the trainer went and looked it up right then and there and it was verified. That is rare, though. And that's not and the reason I think it's rare, it could be probably more more common, if that is what's important to the practitioner to ascertain, well can access that. But from a transpersonal regression, hypnotherapy point of view where I'm completely client centered, it's not always necessary. We're not here for a forensic read on the life that needs to be verified in a court of law. We are looking for healing opportunities. So is this information that's coming forward, beneficial to the life experience moving forward. And that's why it really does tie into what you're talking about. Because shifting perceptions on a subconscious level, or even a super conscious level or accessing wisdom that's available on from a super conscious level helps create more strength, resilience and confidence in the lifetime moving forward. So it can make that story that may have originally been told in a very limiting way more empowering and feel more resonant, when told from a empowered point of view. And all of that can happen so so seamlessly, in the subconscious mind that a person can shift without even necessarily making the choice to change the story, the story just actually evolves as they heal on a subconscious level. So it's beautiful, seamless work.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Okay, so and we're gonna, we're gonna delve more into the specifics of hypnotherapy and how that works and what it's good for, and all that. But I want to get a better understanding of your point of view about about past lives. So I mean, how I believe like you that we are eternal, we are spiritual beings, we were never born never died. We have always been here and will always be here. So that does that. That means that we could have visited this planet many, many times or other planets or had any number of experiences, am I am I right? So absolutely. 100 years ago, did I have one life that I was living 100 years ago? Or were there five people that were living 100 years ago? And that and those that that energy somehow got combined into the unique combination? That's me, what,

Nora Yolles Young:

what, how? into the collective? Yeah, that's a really powerful question. I think my my caveat to that is, we're in the human experience, we're operating with a small bandwidth of awareness versus a complete, full infinite bandwidth of awareness. So I think, however, it contextualizes comfortably in a person's mind is, is, I think, the best starting point. But when you do this work, and you start to navigate space and time, and you go, you know, when you're doing regressive work, whether it be to an early childhood memory, to the womb to other lifetimes, or just exploring the spirit realm, in non physical, quickly, you run into the dynamic of space and time and what is happening, is it happening in a linear fashion? Or is that happening simultaneously? And, you know, I think the consensus is that it's happening simultaneously, however, or just, I mean, maybe even not putting such a fine point on it to say simultaneously, it's happening differently than we perceive time in the human experience. And so, then it becomes a question of, is the consciousness joining with other consciousnesses like is my past life truly mine and mine alone? If we're all one, as many spiritually oriented people would believe, then you would have to then say that the me is also the one is the hole. And so my past life could just as easily be your past life. And there are those who will say, we come in to each life with a different combination of selves, and consciousness is, so perhaps even the consciousness that is the sole me that I'm accessing in a trance state or a hypnotic state is a conglomeration of other souls, that would at some other point in time, in my soul experience be a different conglomeration. And so I think it's it, it's an exercise in nimble thinking, and just allowing all of the possibilities, because in this work, being right is less important I find, then having resonance with what is flowing through. And I think a lot of the healing arts are aligned with that mentality, because there's a there's an orthodoxy of empiricism in this culture that honors, scientific, empirical knowledge over the perceptions and experiences of others. That's what I see. And I don't, I don't mean to judge it, but I just think it's one piece of the puzzle. That is a very cool and important piece of the puzzle. And there's more,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

you're right, it's almost like the the masculine and feminine way of thinking and creating whereas, you know, here here we have proof and step by step and pragmatism. And in the feminine side, we have nurturing and, and magic. The feminine way of creating and I always end, there are always going to be skeptics that are going to go out, and you know, that just let them do their thing. It's, you know, what is serving us in this moment and in these beliefs and, you know, it feels to me Like the the soul that is Lauren, what was did have experiences to other people or maybe animals or maybe blades of grass or, you know that energy and it's all everywhere. And, and it's beautiful and fun to contemplate. Yeah, that evolves and how it might evolve in the future. And, you know, how impermanent this earthly experiences, you know,

Unknown:

I agree, I agree.

Nora Yolles Young:

And, and it can be just in that moment of awareness, that is the only interesting, important part. Like we don't have to contextualize it or make it have meaning other than the experience right in that moment.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Right. Okay said now that this brings me to a point and we're still on the past life regression thing. And I know we get there by hypnotherapy. We're going to talk more about that. But yeah, what under what circumstances would a client benefit from? So I mean, I might come to you and go, I just want to see for fun. Would

Nora Yolles Young:

I just want to wait, I definitely get those people. Yeah, that come for curiosity sake.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Yeah, I don't have to solve but other people are needing this for various reasons. What would those be? And? Well, that's

Nora Yolles Young:

a really good question. And it absolutely depends on the person. Often, people will come for curiosity. And depending on what shows up in the process of getting into the past life, sometimes there are things that need to be navigated before they can enter a past life. And that's the most important thing because the conscious mind, and the subconscious mind, the healing of wisdom of the soul mind will not work to create an opportunity to visit a previous lifetime, unless these primary healing opportunities are accessed and shifted. And then it sort of paves the way. So sometimes people need to sort of work with this current life, and the dynamics that are playing out, if they're showing up as limitations for them. And what will happen is the mind will block going into, into, sometimes people can go into the womb, because the processes, current life, early memories, and then into the womb, and then into a past life. And the past life will end if you're having a life between lives, and you do a second or fourth step, which is the life between lives after the past life. But people depending on what shows up for them in their regression to that timeframe, we just take whatever comes forward. And then there are people who are who have been doing this on their own or are highly spiritually sensitive and open, and they can literally just close their eyes and be there. So it the full range presents itself, people who have had zero experience with hypnosis and are just getting to a place where they can sense turning their introspection inward and having awareness in the body is a first step, just having that awareness outside of the, of the intellect, or the executive mind is a really, it's some for some people to huge step, it's like, huge, and then people who have been meditating for a while or have much more sophisticated spiritual tools will, you know, can, you know, do phenomenal things that I've never seen. And so, there's really no traditional, I mean, I guess there's this standard like, format, but the way it shows up when the spirit realm becomes a part of it, those those sessions become extraordinarily demonic in their presentation. And often, you know, wisdom that comes from other planets, other dimensions, you know, information that the planet as a whole is facing and what we're traversing, you know, conceptually where we're at, in this stage of our evolution, really profound stuff can come through. And so it's such an honor to be a witness to these, these basically, channel downloads. You know, they're beautiful to witness and people through those sessions will often identify their true souls purpose in this lifetime because they'll basically be shown, you know, when they're ready, which is also an incredible honor to be to bear witness to someone accessing their purpose and mission here on the planet. You

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Okay, so we kind of started off in the advanced weight

Nora Yolles Young:

loss right into it.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Let's go back to the very beginning and give us a layman's explanation of what hypnotherapy is. And what actually is going on under under hypnosis. Give us the basic kindergarten. Yeah.

Nora Yolles Young:

So yeah, the the mind set that we're operating with, and our conscious and day to day experience is like our executive mine. And often we're utilizing primarily just the intellect. But we have, I think Bruce Lipton has this statistic, that 40 bits of data per second are being processed. In the conscious mind, the subconscious mind, by contrast, is really the back end to our operating system. And it's totally unfiltered and open and experiencing massive flow, massive bandwidth access, but we're not conscious of that. And so that's all going in behind the scenes, and the statistic for processing that is 40 million bits of data per second. So 40 versus 40 million, and I hope I have that correctly. If I don't, you know, let me know. But it's, it's a huge difference. And so we also start to become programmed in this human life experience when we're still in the womb. So round the second trimester, the conscious, the soul consciousness starts to become more integrated with the consciousness of the baby. And babies consciousness is mom's consciousness. And so there is no self yet it's just mom. And so depending on what mom is going through, programming is starting to happen. And so the and Hypnosis is a frequency of mine that is natural to the human experience. And we go in and out of the frequency of mine that is hidden, hypnosis, naturally throughout the day. So if we're, if we are just waking up, we're falling asleep at night, we're taking long drives, and you know, when you get to your destination, you're like, Oh, I'm here, you're that's the frequency of mind, talking on the phone watching TV. So we have daydreaming is a big one. So when we're in that state, we're highly suggestible. And so from the age of being in the womb to about seven, a child's mind is in an open hypnotic state, all the time. And so those little seeds of the programming are being sprinkled then. And so that's why regression is very powerful, also, because we can actually go back to when the origins of these negative thought loops that that we all have limiting beliefs, patterns of thought ancestrally inherited dynamics, we can go back to their origin, and start to heal those experiences in a way that is most nourishing to the client. So is that does that help? Yes, I can give more, I just have too much

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

of it. So and So under hypnosis, you're able to access this unknown subconscious, that unseen unfelt an acknowledged part of our mind and find old weeds and pluck them. And so in that way, so you're doing the same thing that I'm teaching only, instead of having to every day, oh, I'm reprogramming this on reprogram them, you can do it a lot faster. What it's like you're you're getting right to the root of things, using only the hypnotherapy tools. And, of course, I know that you coach daily changes in habits and changes thoughts, also. Yes, that hypnosis gives you a big head start.

Nora Yolles Young:

Yeah, it's incredibly powerful as as a baseline tool. So I put it as healing the past, pivoting in the present and revisioning the future so it allows a person to kind of own their experience in a way that is more empowering and it's it's so perceptually based, and I think that we're moving out of an era where people have been taught that your personality is your personality, and it's set in stone and you're who you are. And who you are going to be is basically formed and static and concretize. And that's absolutely untrue. However, if you're not cool with that perception, you're it's not a change. Because if that doesn't resonate with your belief system, you know, it's not, it's not going to change. And that's okay. So this work is for people who don't resonate with that model and who don't feel like they want to just stay, the being that they came in being. And so it's very freeing for people who are like, I just like this part of my personality, or this thing that I do is so not what I want to be doing, is there a way to change this, and it's like, there is, and there's hope for people like that, because transformation is possible on, you know, on the physical level, we know that through exercise, it's on the mental level, we can learn through, you know, effort in that way, or focus in that way. emotional level, and this work is very powerful for the depth of the emotional aspect of ourselves. Because we can gain more insight and heal and become more resilient through this work. And resilience is really everything, right? Like, how you think about your life and frame it in your subconscious mind is how it's going to play out. So if you think you're a fragile person, and you can't handle much adversity, you're not going to be able to handle much adversity. But if you go through adversity, with the mindset of this is all part of my journey, and I'm going to learn everything that I can from it, and continue to grow, is going to, it's going to create an entirely different trajectory in your life.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Fascinating. Now, I have people running through my head that are not clients in particular, because clients usually when they come to me, they're ready. They're, you know, like, okay, I, I know that life can be different. I know that I can be different, and I'm ready by people that I love. Are I mired in self doubt mired in your? And the old story? Yeah. And oh, yeah. feeling of worthy of feeling like a failure, you know, saying, you know, well, I've tried to be different. And I, and I can't, yeah, so if these are the ones that I would just love to skip up in my arms and bring them to you and say, Nora, help

Nora Yolles Young:

get well as, and that's a really amazing point. And we all know these people, right? We all have access to these people. And you know, heart centered entrepreneurs, coaches, healers, wellness practitioners all, you know, have that experience, even people who aren't in the wellness field. But the good news, I would say could be frustrating to some but the good news about hypnotherapy is if a person isn't ready, it's not going to work, it will not work. And you could make the argument because there there are people who have utilized NLP and and subconscious reprogramming of any sort, you know, including hypnotherapy, to manipulate in a negative way, what we find is, you have to be willing to agree to it. And, you know, integrity is everything. So I'll just say as an important point, so when you're going to work with a hypnotherapist, or coach or anyone, you have to feel that their integrity is solid. And we can't always know. So it's not to blame anyone who has been manipulated in the past. It's just people who are client centered, are going to give you the power to decide what is what's important for you to work with, and then work with you on that level, and not try to guide you in a way that doesn't feel resonant. Is is what I mean. But So to your point.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

There are people

Nora Yolles Young:

through this work that I've discovered that aren't necessarily here, for the same reason that you or I are here and sometimes even people are in our lives to play very critical roles of contrast for us, so that we can have the experience of knowing what it's like to have people who are on board with this work and people who are not. And to have compassion for people wherever they're at is really I think the journey that's how I interpret it anyway is to just let them be where they're at. Because in this work, there's something called secondary gains. If a If a client comes to me and says, I want to quit smoking cigarettes and they And we go through the process, they say they're really ready, they're really ready. But then they don't end up quitting. So I could say it's my fault. And, and if I'm, if I've done a good job, I'm obviously not going to feel like I lost, I've done something wrong. But if a person is not fully ready to quit smoking, or just drug use alcohol, use anything that as like a persistent, addictive habit, if they're not really ready to totally make that shift, you can't make them do it. And so there are secondary secondary gains to having a perception that keeps us limited. And I want to say small, but that's also kind of a judgment. So in my life, I've made choices that I wouldn't make now that we're in the past things that I feel like kept me small. And so my goal is always to evolve. But that's not that's everyone's goal,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

you know,

Nora Yolles Young:

no reasons for it.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Go. Yeah. And this is something that I go back to you all the time that I keep wanting to fix the world, you know, to help people who are not asking for my help, and thinking that I know what's best for them. And so thank you for that reminder that everybody has their own path, even if it doesn't look like, you know, the path that I would choose for them. It's not up to me to choose their path. That's Yeah, yeah,

Nora Yolles Young:

yeah, it's so true. And it's and I think we, we always need reminders. And one of my big biggest teachers was my dad who passed in 2003, of kidney cancer at the age of 60. And when I was training to be a hypnotherapist in a past life regression demo, I was the demo client in the training, my father came through, and basically downloaded me with the reason that he had left because I was so heartbroken, of course, that he would die so young. And he showed me like, I felt the experience of him, explaining to me that that was the agreement he made coming in, and that he knew he was choosing on life that would that he would be dying at a younger age. And that he signed on for it, he described it as taking one for the team described getting ill and dying, so that me and my siblings and my mom and everyone who you know, his wife at the time, everybody could have the experience of going through that illness with him, and him passing and, and all that is entailed with it. And that was incredible for me to experience, you know, to be told, oh, he that was something that he agreed to do, which also means that my soul, on some level knew that too, that I was going into a lifetime, knowing that part of the experience was to be losing my father totally didn't know that at all. Because when I found out it was the most devastating thing I had ever heard. But there's something really elegant to me about knowing that these really challenging experiences in life have broader meaning if we allow it to, and I think victimhood is a common. And it's an understandable place to feel like around trauma experiences. I think if we stay in that place of victimhood, then it's a missed opportunity for soul growth, doesn't mean it's a failing at all. You know, I know people and probably many of you who are paying attention to this podcast, have people that they've lost due to suicide, or drug addiction or whatever. And it's like, what is the point what a waste. And I would just challenge that notion as a very significant and important thing, then that was very likely agreed upon by the souls involved that were most touched by it. That's a tough pill for a lot of people to swallow. But for me, it's nourishing because it allows me to make sense of things that would otherwise not make sense.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

That's so interesting. I recently lost my brother just last year, and oh, sorry. Yeah. And then it was it's very difficult for me but much more difficult for his wife who's she's, you know, he was in her lies every moment and you know, her total world and I hope that she'll listen to this and and get benefit from it. So let me ask another question about it. Do come into conflicts with other spiritual, like people feel like this whole process of hypnotherapy and past lives and regression is against their particular spiritual beliefs or religious beliefs does that that can

Nora Yolles Young:

happen. There are a couple things if a person is an atheist, like they believe that there's nothing spiritually going on at all. That is contra indicated to hypnotherapy, the kind that I do transpersonal hypnotherapy, you could do direct suggestion based hypnotherapy. But when you start looking at what is consciousness, it's really hard to parse out an earthly an earthly explanation that doesn't include more of an etheric or existential metaphysical component. And so, I've only seen one client that was an atheist that was willing to give it a shot. And sure enough, it was just blocked, because it was like, I can't go there.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Right, it is the How can you go somewhere that you don't believe exists?

Unknown:

Yeah, you know,

Nora Yolles Young:

I would, I would say, you know, sort of old school hypnotherapy or NLP is probably more, you know, like that kind of reprogramming can happen. But if you want deep change on a, on a soul level, this is the kind of work that is really powerful and fun. I think it's fun, because you're learning so much more about who you are and what your potential is, then the context of this life provides. And so that's really freeing and magical, I think. So I don't know, did I answer your question?

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

More or less that? Well? Well, he partly answered it. So an atheist doesn't believe that there is a spirit all isn't gonna work out that. So what what if

Nora Yolles Young:

so, like, an agnostic person,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

or, or like a very fundamental religion?

Nora Yolles Young:

Oh, that's I love I love working with people who have fundamental, well, I wouldn't say fundamental, but people who, if you're in a fundamental church, you're probably not going to be coming to a hypnotherapist like me. But if you have like an interest in on a mystical level in that religion, for sure. But I find Christians in particular, because I'm in the Bible Belt, have no problem at all. And I don't have a problem with that either. Because whoever they connect with on a spiritual level, is their support team. And they can draw upon that as a resource to create the container for a powerful spiritual experience. So often, when I have Christian clients who identify with Christianity, I just tell them if there's something that I'm saying that doesn't resonate with them, just let me know and that I may have blind spots but please don't don't take it as something that's disrespectful I sort of get that out of the way. But also I asked them who is their go to because some, you know, if you're a Catholic, you may you might connect with Mother Mary more than Christ. But in in, you know, a lot of the Christian faiths that are that are more, I guess, New Testament people will connect with Jesus. And you know, Christians are always hanging out with Jesus anyway, like Jesus is always around and observing and so it's a wonderful stepping stone into them trusting that the access that they're reaching is of the highest for them the highest benefit for them and it's not anything darker sinister and so that creates a lot of trust where they can start to not only trust me, but trust the information that's flowing to them as their own and of God which is I mean it it makes all the difference right? Right if you if you know that it's coming streaming from from you know, the divine

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

you're good right, you're good. Romeo he's great Romeo,

Nora Yolles Young:

you're so handsome

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

is such a sweet guy. He's big guy. Okay, so how has this how these times affected your work? Do you need to be in person with your clients or how not at all?

Unknown:

Okay.

Nora Yolles Young:

It's It's, it's, my business is thriving right now. And I think a lot of it is because people are having a lot of stress. And and so and we can talk about that since it's sort of, you know, from chaos to calm, inner calm,

Unknown:

inner calm, right,

Nora Yolles Young:

yeah inner clarity and inner calm. So yeah, people are having a lot of anxiousness fear, stress, understandably and so I do meet with people in my office and I socially distance and we meet in masks and then when we are settled, clients will often remove their mask because the hypnotic experience when you have a mask on it can be a little triggering to the breath. And part of the relaxation process is to start to become aware of sensations in the body like breath. So I take I take my, my physical health very seriously, and I, you know, and I take their health very seriously too. So a lot of people are missing that one on one face to face contact. So I find that there's a lot of nourishment that happens in the face to face, but then I have clients who are not at all feeling comfortable meeting in person. And so we do virtual sessions, and all of the sessions that I offer are available virtually.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

All right, so what are some things that, um, in your, as a coach, give us, give us some tips that we can do by ourselves? And then we're going to talk about how to get in touch with you. And you know, if anybody's interested in working further with you? Yeah, like, what can we do right here at home?

Unknown:

Today,

Nora Yolles Young:

there's so much that you can do. And so one of the things that I'm having fun with is

Unknown:

I do groups

Nora Yolles Young:

from time to time, and one of the groups that I'm planning for is one that's coming up. Something we haven't set the date, probably starting in December, but it's mind Yoga is what I call the group. And so having awareness of your outer senses is very important. So just the basic senses that we use every day, sight, sound, hearing, taste, smell, but we also have inner senses that we, I don't know if we know but we don't give as much sort of clarity to and so we have, we also have inner vision, we have inner knowing, we have intuition, we have instinct, we have inspiration. And we also have inner feeling and inner hearing. And I think I mentioned in our vision so that's like clairvoyant vision, or also being able to envision your future or or see clearly in terms of moving through confusion. So just honoring that we are more than just our outer senses, we have a conglomeration of a nice little personal recipe of these different attributes too. And so part of what strengthens a person's ability to become resilient is to have a sense of what senses you work with best so for example, some people may be inner seeing very well like a clairvoyant person or someone who like a designer somebody who's an artist can close their eyes and Oh, I forgot to mention imagination super big can't miss that one. Um, so colors, color vivid colors and and shapes and designs if you're that person you have more of a clairvoyant connection with your inner world maybe not necessarily more but you could also be a clairaudient or a here inner hearing person listening to words hearing prompts that are that are auditory but it's not coming from outside you're actually getting an I'm a very clear audience person so I'll hear words all hear people talking to me. My Gods will will talk to me but I am also clairvoyant, and that I see my guides, I see them being very playful and tease me my my guides have a very goofy sense of humor, which is awesome because I'm very goofy as well.

Unknown:

Um,

Nora Yolles Young:

some people just have knowledge that just drops in as knowing it's like no, I know that and you'll feel that in your solar plexus. You'll feel With so whatever information you're getting, you're also going to get a physical sensation that matches that. So one of the things that a person can start to do is start to tune into the cues that they're already receiving as data, internal data, inner wisdom that's coming through and start to pinpoint sensations and start to create the symbolic language that you are experiencing and translate it so that when you get so I always tell the story, someone that I did a workshop with, told me that she could tell when people were lying to her, because she said that this old woman would Clank big pots in her in her left awareness over here. So so this this sort of witchy old woman energy would just Clank this like so she's hearing internally, these loud pots banging together. And that's a her isn't, that's not a subtle cue that's like, and so many people think that this work is very subtle to become a medium or to become clairvoyant, we're already hardwired to have all of this happen. And how you're sort of wiring is distributed is different for each person, just how, you know, I'm not like I'm better at geometry than I am at algebra, or I'm a, I think, big picture, as opposed to find ideal details. And there's no right or wrong, good or bad. It's just what are the components that work best for you, and then start working with them playing with that, getting into the space of getting yourself familiar, keeping a journal about it tuning in every day setting intention. And then when it deals with stress, a really quick tool is to start to think of stress versus distress. So if you are what we're finding in this, the empirical scientific community, and there's a great book by Kelly McGonigal about the it's called the upside of stress, and it talks about the scientific data that's coming through about this. And the idea is that stress, in and of itself is not bad. It's how we perceive it. That is, what dictates how stress is going to affect us. So if you have a disempowered interpretation of stress, and are stressed by everything, because if you think about it, we consider stress everything from like, I don't have the correct creamer for my coffee today. Versus I am, you know, my mother's dying, right, like so.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

So it's

Nora Yolles Young:

all in one big basket. And so if you interpret, you know, the loss of a loved one in the same realm as the creamer that you put in your coffee not being there. That's a wide swath swath of stress. And so I think I starting to get more familiar with what causes you distress because again, it's not a good or a bad right or wrong, it's more is, is there a way of seeing stress in a way that is more empowering to me and helps me to become more effective and empowered in my life. Because we don't want things that are, we don't want the the issues in life to totally disrupt us and bring us to our knees, we want to have the tools to move through difficult experiences with grace and get to the good stuff. And so by starting to identify where you are in terms of how you deal with stress and start to own that, you can start to make headway into moving towards more resilience. And there's, you know, creating an environment where your mental health and wellness is important to you is essential. your well being is everything because if you're not well, the people in your family aren't going to be well, because they're going to be affected by your stress and it has a cascading negative effect. So you want to have a cascading positive effect by taking care of yourself. And that can happen with meditation, it can happen with movement and envisioning in the morning and affirmations are so many tools out there that a person can can participate in that don't need to take a lot of time that will make the difference between a life that is bringing you to your knees or a life that is thriving,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

right and even just making up your mind that okay, the stressful situation is just a thing that will give me a chance to learn something will give me a chance to grow it's and just the way that if you say well, stress is a bad it's just a thing. As opposed to Oh my god, the stress is gonna kill me that right just even that one little switch that will. It's, it's a, it's a little it's a little switch that is everything.

Nora Yolles Young:

And they even find that having a negative perception of stress will take an average of eight years off of your life. So and we don't want to just live long lives we want to live healthy, happy, joyful lives. sighs thriving eyes. Yeah, vibrant lives. Yeah, they are there. They also find that if you believe that you're going to be degrading and health and quality of life as you age. Guess what? you dad happens.

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Yeah, yeah. So it's, it's all mindset. Yeah, it's awesome. Okay, so wherever you're watching this video, or listening to the podcast, if you look down, we're going to give you all the links that you can click on to get to Nora and learn more about her look at our classes, look at her coaching, look at her getting her as a therapist all this stuff every every way to get in touch with her, we will provide for you. Let's see one other question before we wrap up.

Unknown:

Oh,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

what about? I have heard that all hypnosis is self hypnosis that if you're not an active participant in the process, that it's not gonna happen. Is that is that true? Or is that it?

Nora Yolles Young:

In the end client centered work? Yes. What I will also say is I have to tread lightly, because there are, you know, I was just watching this documentary on the Nexium thing where, you know, cults use hypnotic techniques to manipulate minds. So what I'll say is, when that there are people, there are bad actors out there that are doing negative stuff with hypnotic techniques. And you have to really use your discernment when you're working with somebody that being said, in my work, yes. So when it comes to a first session, and a person who may not have any experience with hypnotherapy, often, I'll take them through a body relaxation process or like a like a Shavasana in a yoga class, like a nidra style body relaxation. And then we'll get to a point where it may seem like they're not totally relaxed. So I'll check in with them to see where they're at in terms of relaxation, and then I'll give them the reins and say, so, just know that all hypnosis is self hypnosis, and I need them to have buy in so that they can start to take ownership of their experience, which is empowering ultimately, because it's, it sets the stage for the work ahead. And so I asked them to start bringing themselves down so that like if a person on a scale of one to 1010 being wide awake and one being close to commentate toasts Where are you and people who are not totally relaxed will say, oh, seven, were, you know, Sam at a seven. And so Okay, go ahead and take a nice deep breath and bring yourself down to six now. And that's a learning experience for people. It's like, Oh, she's not gonna wave a magic wand and just make me pass out. I know. Contrary to popular belief, you're not going to be like you're under anesthesia, you're going to be awake and alert and aware, but your body is going to be rested in that creates that magical combination of elements where your consciousness can expand. And your your and the mental mind can get out of the way. And then the broader self can really have it's time to, like, have the natural, nourishing healing opportunity that your being is ready for you to have that is it's just flowing and streaming out of you. It's just this is how you can access that in real time. Awesome. So long answer. Yes, yes and no. of the all hypnosis is self hypnosis. So I'd say that yes and no. Okay,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

so I'm not we could talk all day, but we're almost out of time.

Unknown:

So my final question,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

is there any benefit in of course, there is benefit. How much benefit is there in self witnesses?

Nora Yolles Young:

If it's wonderful. I'll have all train clients how to self hypnotize to support them if there's something that they're really having a tricky time with. In between sessions and again, that just puts it the put the tools right in their hands.

Unknown:

Okay, awesome, so

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

you can get in touch with Nora And let her hypnotize you or let her teach you how to hypnotize yourself or any combination.

Nora Yolles Young:

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:

Nora Yolles Young:

So if and and my my target market for those kinds of for this kind of work are people who are already in the healing arts, alternative wellness practitioners, coaches, healers, shamans. They're so perfectly poised to have this greater frame to do work within. Yeah,

Lauren Gabrielle Foster:
