Self hypnosis is a natural state, as the masterful Britt Sheflin, Master Hypnotist and Certified Hypnotherapist, reminds us in this free-flowing conversation. We spend the early part of our childhood (until about age 8) enjoying learning and the mindset of discovery every day.
She explains how, as we grow, new confining filters fit themselves over us and block so much from our awareness, all in the interest of automatic behaviors that seem to make life efficient. Efficient, but dull. And too often full of unsolvable fears or even phobias that settle in upon us.
Britt opens a fresh window for everyone to more clearly see these confining patterns and what we can do to invite more ‘Shift” into our lives.
Enjoy the ease with which Britt shares her own discoveries, and what she knows works, to give people access to the freedom and spontaneity that allows for a fulfilling life!

Britt shares a “Whisper”
“My first Whisper in regards to hypnosis and the mind/body connection was when I was a kid with severe asthma, and realized that I could stop or prevent an attack with the power of my own mind. ”

About my special guest:
As a small child, Britt would delve so deeply into her private fantasy land (self-hypnosis), that she would be fully immersed in whole worlds that were rich and wonderful layers to add to her daily experience of life. It was these journeys where she first discovered that imagination was a powerful tool, not only for entertainment, but for creating desired change.
In young adulthood, Britt made those far-fetched childhood fantasies reality, by moving to Alaska. There she learned about homesteading, permaculture, traveling the world, treehouses, and dance performance. Her performance career landed her in Las Vegas, where she briefly worked in a hypnosis show, and became fascinated with how powerful hypnosis is.
After moving to Los Angeles to continue performing and teaching dance, Britt developed a successful career as a private chef and a burgeoning filmmaker. Shortly thereafter, Britt met her wonderful partner and future father of their child. She decided to use her self-hypnosis skills for her own labor and delivery. It resulted in a very peaceful, and incredibly comfortable childbirth that inspired her to study hypnosis in a professional capacity.
In 2017, Britt went through the excellent Internship Program at HMI in Tarzana, California. Since then, Britt has become a Master Hypnotist, Certified Hypnotherapist, member of the American Hypnosis Association, and the Hypnotherapist's Union, Local 472. Britt continues her lifelong studies of hypnosis through continuing education programs, and earning supplemental certifications, as well as by sharing her knowledge with others through workshops and presentations.
Britt looks forward to continuing her hypnotherapy journey, and sharing her unique ability to help her clients make shift happen.
