NoraNagatani.com Ends Regular Run

My Precious Grandchildren

It is a bittersweet moment as I write this post — my 150th — and as I make this my final regular post.  I started this three years ago as a fun project and as an activity to keep my brain stimulated. It has definitely been fun and I’ve never been at a loss as to what to write. I’ve always been on the lookout for interesting topics, at least to me and hopefully to you, too, and they have always come my way. However, a couple of months ago, I launched a “Gracefully Age” newsletter with my Gracefully Age Program, so I’ve decided to put my efforts into the newsletter. Please sign up for my newsletter on the Home page of my new Web site, GracefullyAge.com.

Additionally, everyone knows most seniors have health issues. Have you gotten together with your senior friends and noticed that inevitably, the topic of conversations revolves around health or most likely, lack thereof. Do these sound familiar?

  • My back hurts or my neck hurts or my knee hurts.
  • I’m a pre-diabetic or I’ve become a diabetic.
  • I can’t keep up with my grandkids.
  • I don’t sleep well at night.
  • Etc.

As an energy healer, I have studied and practiced a number of modalities, but most recently, I came across one called, The Emotion Code (TEC). Previous to finding TEC, I had studied another modality which I liked, but it was very hard to explain to my clients. TEC turned out to be similar, but uses words that my clients and I understand. So I became certified in TEC.

I am really excited about being able to help people and seeing their pain and problems disappear using TEC. Depending on the number of trapped emotions that the person has, it could be a very quick session or it might take several sessions. It could be done in-person, over the phone, or simply by my being your proxy. Understand that everything is energy and that you simply need the desire to rid yourself of your trapped emotions that could be causing any number of health issues or diseases. For more information, please go to GracefullyAge.com/emotion-code.

As I say goodbye for now, I want to thank everyone for their support. As I shift my energies in other ways to help the senior population, I hope you will join me in my new endeavors. If you’re not getting up excited every morning to pursue your passion, then perhaps I can help. Check out the Gracefully Age Program and sign up for your complimentary session.

Good luck and all the best for the rest of your awesome life!

Breaking a Habit — Can Hypnotherapy Work?

So you have a bad habit — smoking, eating too much, biting your nails — and you’d like to break the habit. Or maybe you don’t have a bad habit you’d like to break, but you need help with achieving your goals. Can hypnotherapy work? Perhaps, perhaps not. Last week I met a certified hypnotist studying advanced hypnotherapy. He had previously given a presentation to The Healing Cooperative – Fairfax Chapter and was offering the opportunity to experience hypnotherapy.

Being very interested in alternative and complementary medicine, I decided to schedule an appointment. In one sense, John and I are on parallel paths — we are at the beginning of our journey to learn our chosen healing modality. He witnessed hypnosis and saw positive results and I saw how Cellular Response could help people. (See my previous posts here and here).

After the hypnotherapy experience, I felt very relaxed for the rest of the night. The next day I felt that my mind was clear and I felt a sense of direction. It helped me to see where I could go with my Cellular Response practice. I was amazed at how well hypnotherapy worked for me even in a very short session.

First, I filled out a simple questionnaire with yes or no answers. From this questionnaire, he guided me with questions then led me down the path to clearly see how I am helping people to heal and how they in turn can contribute to helping others. This was simple and beautiful.

What I recall about hypnosis is whatever I saw as a young child. It started with, “You’re getting sleepy….” Does this ring a bell? Or maybe hypnotists still do that for shows. Personally, I’ve not seen anything like that recently. In my session, I was seated in a chair with my arms outstretched on the table in front of me and he asked me to tap my right index finger on the table and to put it on autopilot. Then he guided my left arm until it met my forehead. Most of the time was spent in guiding my thoughts and before opening my eyes, my tapping was stopped and I was back to my original position.

Hypnotherapy is probably not for everyone and in many cases (such as to stop smoking), one session would probably not be adequate. John is currently practicing law and is preparing to possibly start a second career helping people via hypnotherapy. I left the session with a list of 145 ways that hypnotherapy may be able to help you. He’s even helping a couple of people to improve their golf game. Have you used a hypnotherapist? How did it work for you?

Happy New Year from noranagatani.com!

Happy New YearCan you believe another year has flown by? Happy New Year! Here at noranagatani.com it was an incredible year of awesome experiences. I hope it was full of wonderful memories for you as well. For my husband and me, it was always the anticipation of seeing and being with our now 16-month old granddaughter. She flew in with her parents on Christmas night and it was the best gift anyone could ask for. Together with my younger son and his wife, we are currently enjoying our holiday family reunion.IMG_6773

Are you living your life’s purpose? I had a hand analysis done this year and found that I am a gifted healer. It validated my wanting to learn and practice Cellular Response, an energy healing modality founded in California by Dan Yamaguchi of Silicon Valley Health and Wellbeing. It gives me immense pleasure to help people with their pain (and as seniors, don’t our bodies pop up with pain here and there all the time?) I am very excited about continuing my education in this area.

I hope you enjoyed Joanne Lozar Glenn’s series on writing. I am inviting more senior guest bloggers to join me on this blog to share their expertise with you. I’ve met many of them through the Women’s Network of Springfield, a women’s networking group that I co-founded. If you have a Facebook account, you can visit us here.

Take good care of yourself. Remember, the gift of health is the best gift you can give yourself and your loved ones. Happy New Year!
