My name is Susanlily Barclay. I have been a practicing certified hypnotherapist since 1998. I live and work in a small, rural Hispanic village named Polvadera in Socorro County, New Mexico. When translated into English, Polvadera roughly means, "dust blowing in the wind" and Socorro means, "to render aid or help."
To me, living in the old farming village of Polvadera, means I have lots of experience with winds that blow all year round. Dust is constantly swirling in the air and whatever order, or expectation of order, I have is quickly made irrelevant by the frequent dusty winds that re-arrange all my carefully laid plans. Sometimes, when I tear open a packet of seeds to plant, even before I can put a single seed in the ground, all the little seeds are lifted right out of my hand and blown far away to someone else's yard. So, to live and thrive in this place requires developing a ready sense of humor and a good supply of resiliency. Besides becoming more self-sufficient, living here constantly "Re-Minds" me to make good use of ever-present opportunities to offer and receive help from family, neighbors, friends, and even from strangers. These life lessons are especially helpful now when each of us needs to be creatively flexible, to finding ways to accomplish our personal goals in spite of difficult conditions. It's time to be nimble and agile-minded.
My role, as your hypnotherapist, is to work in partnership with you, helping you to successfully bring about the positive life changes you want to experience as your new reality. These changes can be anything ranging from keeping productive, helping your immune system maintain resistance to covid-19 infection, or even to experiencing this time as one of great opportunity for discovering new ways of being more self-healing, self-reliant and creatively successful. As a wise, ancient Chinese text "Re-Minds" us, "Out of Chaos, Brilliant Stars are Born." Regardless of the context in which you find yourself, or the specific changes you want to make, my job is always the same....to help you achieve your personal goals.
The Wondrous Journey of the Mind that is Willing to See
Tao Te Ching
As a certified hypnotherapist with a rich background in psychology and in life skills, I am well equipped to help you find answers to your problems. Although I don't personally know what these answers are, I do know that you know yourself better than anyone else does. It is my job to help you discover which answers work best for you, and then to help you make successful use of them. Change is a constant in life, so it is necessary that we be flexible-minded, willing to try new ideas and new behaviors that better serve today's situations and our ever changing needs. Yesterday's solutions cannot provide the answers to our problems today. But, like the brilliant inventor, Thomas Edison, we too, can benefit from seeing which roads have failed to lead us to our intended goals. The secret is to use this knowledge to save ourselves a lot of heartache and wasted effort by pointing us in a new direction. Relying on the awesome powers of your own mind, both its conscious and its other-than-conscious aspects, is more important now than ever. The chaotic, current world situation offers you a splendid opportunity to invent a new, improved reality for yourself at a time of profound change and unlimited alternative possibilities.
You may want to think of me as a guide whose job it is to help you successfully move through unfamiliar territory to get to where you want to go. I know that it is possible for you to change your reality for the better and I know how to help you do this. The power to change your mind and your life is your birthright. Now is the time to "Re-Mind" Yourself that you can make good use of your inherent resources for positive change.
When you Re-Mind Yourself, you jettison a lifetime of negative beliefs about yourself and life that have been cluttering up the “closets of your mind” for way too long...much like getting rid of and tossing out ill-fitting, out-dated, unflattering cIt’s lothes...whether they are things you used to love but now can't stand, or things you still love, but they just never seem to fill the bill and so you don't wear them. And then, check out your dresser drawers...pull out all the too-tight shorts, ugly swimsuits, and baggy underwear you will never wear again...that's right...you know what I'm talking about...go ahead and pull all these useless items out of your dresser drawers and off their hangers...and GET RID OF THEM. How you do it is up to you. You can pile them into big plastic bags, dump them in the trash, you can get creative and make fabric art, you can tear them into handy rags, you can make a ceremony and burn them at dawn, or you can give them to the Salvation Army . All that matters, is that you get rid of them...and make room for...creating plenty of empty space for... something new.
As you haul the past away...maybe you are wondering, “how did I ever wind up with such a collection of uncomfortable clothes?” Maybe some of them found their way into your closet as gifts...or maybe everybody was wearing those things then and you wanted to feel as “cool” and “in” as they all seemed to be...or maybe some were on sale for a price so cheap you couldn't say “no”. Regardless they got there...you were ignoring and storing them...as though they had practical value to you...but now you are able to see them as what they really are...things that you no longer need or use...and this empowers you to clear them out...frees you to make new space for something better...and this is what you do when you Re-Mind Yourself.
Now, how does it feel to be in charge of what you have in your mind...to have rid yourself of outdated and unwanted conceptual deadwood of years past? Just feel the change for a second...or two...imagine you have recognized and tossed out every idea, memory, perception, belief, and related emotion that produces a feeling of guilt, inadequacy, shame, or self-loathing in you. And in its place, you have allowed only those ideas, memories, beliefs, perceptions and related emotions that are in accord with the energy and vibration of Love...Truth...Peace.. ..and Joy. So, Re-Minding Yourself...lets you clear mental space to make room for new ideas that reflect your current highest personal values, your deepest desires for yourself, and your own most meaningful experiences of life.
Re-Minding Yourself means you remember your power...your power to create a new, and better-fitting reality for yourself. Re-Minding Yourself that you can “turn the page” on a bad story...and doing this opens the possibility of a whole new chapter, if not a whole new book...in fact, it could turn out that the earlier scary, sad, or boring parts were just to make the ending all the more powerful, inspiring and life-changing...after all, any thing is possible!
And, here's another especially helpful thing about Re-Minding Yourself...
It doesn't matter how practiced you are at living your old, limited reality...it only matters that ”you have had enough”...because “when you have had enough”...that's the beginning of the end for the old you...the old ways...the old problems...”when you have had enough” that is your ticket to freedom because then you WILL FIND YOUR WAY TO FREEDOM... Things WILL CHANGE...because you are literally a new person, with new thoughts...living a new life, with a new reality...and that is the simple truth of what Re-Minding Yourself will do.
Getting Free of the past that no longer serves your well-being....lets you find something new in yourself and in life that calls you forward to a new reality...you literally transform and raise yourself to a higher level of self-knowing and self-expression...and this is FREEDOM...
Expect to experience something like this too, when you Re-Mind Yourself. Getting free of the chains of the past NOW...lets you discover and use your inner resources to create something better...something more in line with your inner vision of your true self...Re-Minding Yourself lets you “try on” a positively different, new expression of yourself ...to get comfortable and relaxed being this new you in the NOW...and to find your strength to finally break free of old limitations that chain you to ideas, feelings and habits that no longer serve your well-being.
