How Understanding "The Universal Cycles of Change" Creates Success

-WealthyMind Seminar Santa Cruz and the article Universal Cycles of Change are by Rainya Dann

Nature is one our greatest teachers. Human beings are a part of nature, and our universe is about 13 billion years old, so there must be some connection between natural patterns that exist outside of ourselves and unconscious patterns that reside within us. These patterns involve "cycles of change" that occur in all living systems such as plants, trees, stars, cells and animals.

In our human lives, we can examine how habits and thinking influence the cycles we experience and what outcomes occur. Awareness of this process can help us let go of limiting beliefs and instead attract health, wealth, happiness and success. Years of scientific research about this process in NLP reveals how we can let go of limiting beliefs and habits in favor of creating positive change. In our NLP WealthyMind seminars we teach this awareness through a concept called "Universal Cycles of Change."

Let's examine the cycles of trees as a metaphor for how the "Universal Cycles of Change" work. The first cycle is that of creation when a seed is planted. Then the tree grows and reaches maturity in which its leaves have blossomed. Then Autumn sets in, the leaves begin to change, entering a stage called turbulence. The weather gets colder and the tree's complex state can no longer be supported. Something has got to shift, so the leaves brown as the wind and rain come. This creates the next stage, chaos, when the system begins to fall apart. Once chaos sets in there must be some sort of letting go to bring the system back into balance. The tree drops its leaves and it stands in dormancy, or meditation, the final cycle in which the system recycles and regains it's balance. Then Spring comes around restarting creation.
All living systems get too complex in their development and must have some kind of a "dropping off" to regain balance. We can learn by modeling after the trees. Have you ever walked by a tree and all of a sudden you hear the tree crying out, “Pleeeease, don’t let my leaves fall off!" This never happens. The trees have simply mastered the art of dropping off and recycling back up to creation.
There is only one living system that does not allow itself to naturally go through this 13 billion year old process of universal change. This system allows itself to stay stuck in turbulence and chaos for extended periods of time. It often resists dropping off what needs to be dropped off. Can you guess which system it is? Human beings, of course. Humans resist change in ways that affect relationships, careers, health and joy.
We invite you to join us to learn more about how to let go of limiting beliefs and create the life you want. Our WealthyMind seminar is part of powerful NLP technology that is specifically designed to help us learn how to let go of limiting beliefs and attract more success. Buddha once said, "the key to happiness is learning to let go."

Shatter the Ceiling That Is Limiting Your Success and Go For What You Want!

Have you noticed that when you are truly congruent about achieving a goal or a dream, it seems to come easily? It is almost like the universe conspires to give it to you. When you are in conflict (even unconscious conflict) or if you are unclear about your heart's desire, creating what you want is difficult...

People who live wealthy lives do so because their beliefs about themselves and life are in alignment with their dreams. WealthyMind™ Santa Cruz Seminars are opportunities to explore and change your deeper thinking and shift your ideas about what is possible for you! To shatter the self-imposed ceilings that are limiting your success, you'll work on five areas during the WealthyMind™ Program:
  • Identify your belief systems to unearth the important beliefs that drive your attitude
    and acceptance of success and wealth
  • Learn to get closure and shed things that limit your success
  • Discover family themes that affect your success and change them by taking action
  • Learn a powerful "four-step belief change process" to transform any limiting beliefs
  • Find new ways to envision and attract what you want into your life

How We Hypnotize Ourselves


How We Hypnotize Ourselves

(A Hypnotherapy School in Santa Cruz, CA)

 How we Hypnotize Ourselves:

Milton Erickson, the father of modern hypnosis, once said something like "If the conscious mind could have figured it out it would have. Since it has not, we need to go to the subconscious." Awakening from our subconscious programming allows us to open more fully to the magnificence of each moment. As Ram Dass said, "We're sitting under the tree of our thinking minds (the subconscious) wondering why we're not getting any sunshine!"

According to Buddhist psychology there are two basic states of consciousness - awareness (awake) or unawareness (asleep). As you are looking at these words you may be aware of sounds around you, you may be aware of your breathing and you might notice yourself noticing thoughts. This is being aware, being here and now. When we are unaware of this present moment we are in unawareness. Or, another way to express it, we are in a state of hypnosis, we are dreaming. A helpful exercise you can do throughout your day is ask yourself, "what is here and now?" (Look around, see what you see, listen to the sounds and feel the textures, your breathing, your body.) The second question is ,"what am I dreaming about?" (Notice thoughts, feelings, beliefs) Then ask again, "what is here and now?" Without judging either as good or bad, right or wrong, just noticing gives choice.

Ever driving along, feeling great, in the here and now, you look in the rear view mirror and see a red flashing light inviting you to pull over!? Or, you hear an old love song and it triggers a flood of memories? What happened was your subconscious memories got triggered. What to do? First step is to recognize that you just slipped into a memory. Second step is to ask yourself, "what memory got triggered? " Third step is to choose to be here/now. Adya Shanti says, "It's hard to suffer without your story." If you have a difficult time stepping out of the past you might need to go deeper into the memory/feelings. With guided hypnotherapy you can go into the memory safely to heal it and explore the hidden treasures there.

Understanding these two modalities starts to give you more choices about how you can experience your life. As you learn about what thoughts and feelings come from your own subconscious programming, you can begin to make positive adjustments for a happier life. Exploring hypnosis and learning self hypnosis techniques can allow you to relax with what is here for you now in each precious moment.

Watch, next time you hypnotize yourself into believing in a memory. Just
stop for a moment, take a deeper breath, and say, "I was believing in the past." As time slows down, space opens up. You are standing in a doorway to a different possibility. Take another deep breath and open to the presence of what is. Call grace to you and relax.

"Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away." -Maya Angelou

The Five Keys of Manifesting Change


The Five Keys of Manifesting Change

Article by Rainya Dann, as published in Santa Cruz's Connections Magazine April 2013

Barbara Walters was interviewing multi–billionaire Bill Gates and asked him, “Now that you’re the richest man in the world and you can have anything you desire, what more could you possibly want?” Gates replied, “To never stop changing. Whatever I do today, will be considered history tomorrow. I have to make sure that I never stop changing, and that I am always creating.”

This time of year, when taxes and Springtime are on our minds, we naturally reflect on how to make our financial and personal lives more fruitful. I want to share with you the five key concepts I use to help my clients consciously bringing forth changes that they want.



A first key is to have a clear vision about a goal. Goals are energetic attractors. Envision yourself doing the thing you want. One famous phrase the Buddha repeated over and over again is "all that we are is the result of what we have thought."

A second powerful key is to set your intent. "Intent" comes from the Latin "intendo" which means to "stretch forward." Say, "I wish I could go to my car." Now say, "I intend to go to my car. " Notice how "intending" is more empowering than "wishing."
A third key is to become aware of your limiting beliefs and change them into beliefs of empowerment. The Oracle of Delphi said that the key to bringing forth what you want is in "knowing thyself." This includes knowing what your limitations are and what empowers you. Recently, one client of mine uncovered his limiting belief that "you have to work hard for your money" and we changed it to "money comes quickly and easily to me." I guided him through an NLP "Four Step Belief Change Process" that released his limiting, subconscious memories. After that day he attracted new, positive experiences around wealth.



A fourth key is to gain closure in all areas of your life by cleaning up past unresolved issues. You may hold issues with people, places or things that create anger, betrayal, jealousy, or other negative emotions. To let go of those emotions first acknowledge what you feel, honor it, then consciously say, "I choose to let it go."



A fifth key is to trust in the morphogenetic field of all possibilities. The word morphogenesis means "beginning of form" and implies that all living systems reside within an energetic field where synchronicity and exciting "coincidences" happen. Trust in positive possibilities!

I trust these five keys can help you be the powerful creator of your own future. You can harness the creative potential that exists within the seed of a plant or the mind of a billionaire. Whenever you catch yourself with a negative thought, just say, "DELETE." Then say, "I choose, trust and know....then visualize what you do want. You will be amazed at the new changes you attract to your life!

Awaken Awareness with Voice Dialogue Techniques

Awakening Awareness with Voice Dialogue

by Rainya Dann, Director, Institute for Transpersonal Studies
(This article appears in the February 2013 Issue of "Connections" Magazine.)

Rainya Dann is offering Voice Dialogue training on March 9-10 & 30-31 at The Institute for Transpersonal Studies (ITS) and a free Voice Dialogue Meetup event at The Pacific Cultural Center on February 27.

"Just wake up!" say the mystics throughout the ages. Traveling deep into our hearts, minds and spirits to awaken our consciousness from the daydreams, and sometimes nightmares, of living will lead to more fulfilling lives. It is in our moments of true awareness we find the presence of peace and contentment.

Over the past 30 years I've researched HOW to awaken from old feelings, beliefs and memories that seem to project unconsciously into the present. I found Voice Dialogue to be an easy and inspiring method for revealing a map of one's psyche, for understanding how our "inner selves" subconsciously limit or inspire us. Developed by Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone, Voice Dialogue techniques let you discover your own inner cast of characters, to fully realize "Who" you are. A masterful tool for clarity, it increases your capacity to exercise more conscious choices and to see yourself and others with more compassion, awareness and grace.

Voice Dialogue work explores your inner "selves" that were formed since you were a vulnerable child. Those primary selves developed to protect that child and they now form the core of your personality. Since before birth you were feeling, watching, and making decisions about the way life is, forming your core beliefs. As you grew you encountered rules and judgments in your family system, behavior-guiding experiences that caused you to "disown" some inner selves. Those "disowned selves" eventually became an energy pattern that could be judged or even punished. You might have developed inner selves such as a strong "protector," a "perfectionist," an "overachiever" or a "rebel." These are like your inner parents that are still deep in your subconscious causing you to react to situations today in ways you may not understand. For example, one part of you likes staying up late and another part of you likes getting up early. One part of you loves ice cream and another part wants to eat greens...

Voice Dialogue techniques give you the power to make more conscious choices! You realize it's okay to feel conflicted in areas of your life and to accept who you are. When you identify and embrace all parts of yourself (and conflicting needs) you can make more conscious choices rather than reacting out of habit or duty.

Voice Dialogue will give you more understanding of others, too. Anything you judge in another person is an opportunity to examine your own "disowned selves." Try this exercise:

1. Close your eyes, take a deep breath. Think of a person who annoys you.
2. What quality are you judging in them?
3. Were you allowed to have that quality as a child?
4. Your reaction to that person reflects a part of you that you have not accepted inside yourself.
5. Open your eyes and write down that quality. That's a "disowned self"!
6. Ask yourself to honor that part of yourself, it needs your acceptance.

When we shine the light of awareness onto our selves, consciousness awakens!
