Iâ€™ve always been happy for the most part, but I think Iâ€™ve grown happier. Your definition of happiness evolves as you grow and mature. When youâ€™re younger, you want things, and you believe they will bring you happiness. But, now that Iâ€™m older, what I find brings the most happiness is balance. I need balance to be happy in life. For example, I am a CPA but I also teach hypnosis and meditation. Itâ€™s feeding the different pieces of me in moderation that bring me balance and a calm happiness.
Iâ€™m originally from Long Island and I was big into going out and clubbing and having lots of friends and things. But, when I moved to Florida at 28, I started having panic attacks. I had always been taken care of by others or preoccupied by my lifestyle and I didnâ€™t know how to live without all that external influence. So, when I moved down to Florida and didnâ€™t know anyone, I began to have phobias and things got weird. So, I got a therapist who was into hypnotherapy, and he taught me how to refocus myself. Thatâ€™s when I got interested in hypnotherapy and meditation. I went to school for hypnosis and meditation, and now I help others â€œlet goâ€ and find peace. Iâ€™ve even made a CD that you can purchase here of Yoga Nidra practice, a form of â€œyogi sleepâ€ where you are in a state of complete relaxation but fully conscious and aware.
