Shelby's Experience with SMGI® - Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery®
With Somatic Mindful Guided Imagery®
great strides can be made with some really simple techniques that work for everybody!
SHELBY: I was referred by my massage instructor to check out hypnotherapy, and that's when phone books were around, and I went straight to Gina's name in the phone book, as if I had to see her, and as if she was the only one. I had three sessions and it's something that stuck with me for 17 years and just really got me through some difficult times.
I feel like tools I didn't know I had, were unearthed inside of me. I had this knowing that I needed to revisit these techniques to get me through a difficult time, and also to learn them so that I could share with others this healing work that helped me so long ago.
MICHELLE: So you're saying that you've been seeing Gina for 17 years?
SHELBY: Mm-hmm. It is a beautiful testament. And I knew during this difficult time of losing my husband, I had to have it again. It was what was going to get me through.
I definitely feel lighter and more at peace and I have more love in my heart than I did when I started, which, wow, I didn't know if that was really possible.
MICHELLE: You intend to learn SMGI® as a practitioner or facilitator of it as well?
SHELBY: I do.
"I definitely feel lighter and more at peace and I have more love in my heart than I did when I started, which, wow, I didn't know if that was really possible".
MICHELLE: And what is the work that you currently do professionally?
SHELBY: I am a massage therapist, cranial sacral therapist, and reiki practitioner. So it kind of flows into that field.
MICHELLE: What in becoming an SMGI® practitioner feels aligned for you in the work you do in the world?
SHELBY: The ease of it all. I feel like great strides can be made, with some really simple techniques - that are inside of our own body - that we're not necessarily aware of. And it works for everybody, which is pretty beautiful.
I's something that you take with you that doesn't go away.
Yeah, it's all definitely a yes for me. I feel very focused on what direction I'm going and it's confirmation for what I already knew coming in. I can't get started soon enough!
