Abundantly You and Visionary Journey class testimonials

I came to Michael weighing 175lbs at 5’2″. My blood sugars (fasting) were ranging 135 -140s. I felt tired and sleepy most of the time with no motivation. I did not like myself at all. I started doing hypnotherapy once a week and found myself making better food choices without the fight or resistance I used to have. I wanted fruits and vegetables, I wanted to exercise and I did.! Sometimes it would slip but it was no big deal, it was easy to get back on track, after 6 weeks I have lost 15 lbs and have more energy that I have had in years! I look forward to releasing more weight and becoming more fit. I know I can now maintain my fit and healthy lifestyle with ease and grace.

The seminar was uncanny. While money was not on the top of my list, finances were on my visionary board. Shortly after Michael’s seminar, I was told that I was owed money for mineral rights on property that I have owned for more than 10 years. I received a lump sum plus now I receive monthly payments. This second income was totally unexpected. I was also contacted by a former employer from six years ago. They had a lost paycheck for me! How is that possible? Within a month of the seminar I had an extra $10,000 plus am now receiving an effortless second income. I can hardly wait to see what happens next.

Hi Michael, let me say thank you for the great work. When I took a chance on you, it was really on a whim, but what luck of a whim. The way you literally let me write most of my own script, and then the way you wove it into your own work, was marvelous. I have applied most of what you said in your seminar and everything seems to be falling into place. . I look forward to listening to the CD when I receive it…and perhaps contacting you for further help down the road when necessary. Thank you again for having demonstrated to me that I am capable of so much more in my life.

H | Long Beach, CA

Michael’s hypnosis workshop helped me like no other hypnotist has ever been able to do before. I now have a much more positive outlook on life and have a newfound belief that hypnosis really can be beneficial to me.

Mark | Fullerton, CA

Michael, I attended the “Abundantly You” workshop in September, and I gained a lot of insight into how I can make my life more positive and fulfilling. The strategies you suggested are very easy to implement, and I can already see positive changes in my life! I have been able to change the way that I think about circumstances in my life, and I’ve been able to let go of negative things in my past.

P.S. Your relaxation CD is wonderful! I have always had trouble falling asleep at night because I’m constantly worrying about what I need to do the next day. Listening to the CD has really helped me to relax. I’ve already recommended it to my friends and family!

Private Session: Exam Preparation Testimonials

At first, when I heard the word “hypnosis,” I thought no way in the world would that ever work for me! I did not believe it, until I experienced it for myself, and I am so thankful I did. My hypnotherapy sessions with Michael were amazing. It definitely helped me in preparing for the CA Bar Exam. I was relaxed before the exam and during the exam. I have taken the exam before, but I have never felt this way until after hypnosis. I was calm and didn’t shed a tear this time! I made it out of there stress free and confident! Thank you so much for helping me get through it!

Arlene| Riverside

I would recommend hypnosis for anyone that is facing a major exam. Michael is great!!! I was totally relaxed for the February 2008 Bar Examination, especially after not being successful in 2006 and sitting out for 18 months. I met the 3-day examination stress free and with total recall. It was a very relaxing experience. Michael, I thank God for you and Deeper States

Shardon| Riverside

Thank you Michael, for helping me overcome my anxiety attacks. Thanks to you I passed the Baby Bar and am now preparing to take the BAR without any more attacks. Now that I don’t have to worry about anxiety, I can focus on studying. Please know that having control over my attacks has helped improve my personal life too, on my wedding day I was very relaxed which allowed me to enjoy every minute of that special day!

Alda | California

Michael helped me get through a testing process that I had failed twice before. He was recommended to me by my daughter-in-law. She is studying to be a lawyer and used Michael before she took the bar exam. She was also successful. Thank you, Michael!

Life Enrichment Programs Testimonials

I really don’t know what to say or how to structure this testimonial. I got out of it what I wanted. My hope was to focus more on my career and stay focused and positive with it. Since our sessions, I have accomplished many of the things that I had set for goals. I worked nearly every day on my acting and within a few months, signed with a commercial agent and went on several auditions I have been cast in several shows. I have a sense of forward motion and purpose that I haven’t felt in years. The sessions with you were certainly, one of the main catalysts for this new sense of direction. Thanks, Michael.

James | Long Beach

After losing my mother, I needed help getting thru the overwhelming sadness. I decided I was ready to take control of my life again. Hypnosis replaced the sadness with memories of joy and celebration of the amazing person my mom was. I would not have made it thru these times without Michael’s help!

Susan | Pasadena

When I met Mr. Almarez I was nervous and I no idea what to expect. I was suffering extreme worry depression and anxiety issues. My OBGYN suggested that I go see Michael to see if he could help me at all. I lost a child in June and almost my life. I had a blood transfusion which made me go mad…literally I was so scared. With this said all the doctors in the world wanted to medicate me and they did. My goal in all of this is to get off all medication so that I can try for a baby again. When I showed up to Deeper States I was a mess. But I can truly say that Michael has not only done a wonderful job at re balancing my brain chemistry, changed my menstrual cycles, warded off my depression….but now I can sleep!! Insomnia was plaguing me quite badly. I think the first time I saw him I was so scared he was going to think that I was hopeless…. I am now more positive than ever and know that the medication that I am reducing cannot control me because my mind is that powerful! He is brilliant at what he does….and I will continue to work with him for a long long time. Not that I need to, I just love what he does. You saved/changed me life forever! Thank you for everything!!!

Traci| Long Beach

Late last year I retired from a job I had worked for more than 20 years. I also quit smoking at the same time. All that caused me to lose control of my life and sense of direction. I was floundering, with no real sense of who I was or what I wanted to do. Now, thanks to Michael, I am back on track. He definitely helped me to define my goals and get back on the track of a fulfilling life. Thanks, Michael.

Kathie| Manhattan Beach

The hypnosis for the pain to my knee helped me tremendously. I just completed a seven mile hike up hill with no pain and was able to keep up with everyone. The hike commenced at the 7000 foot elevation and finished at the 9000 foot elevation. I would not have been able to complete this accomplishment without your help especially only four months post knee surgery and having chronic knee pain. Thanks Again.

David| Flagstaff, AZ

Working with Michael has been a complete pleasure. I was experiencing personal issues with in- adequacy and confidence. Michael helped me to remove a lot of negative behaviors and issues and I believe I am well on my way to becoming the person I want to be, and more importantly the person I know I can be. It’s not an overnight process, but the individual must really want to change and grow before anyone else can help them. Michael will definitely show you the road to your personal best. Thank You Deeper States.

Joe| Long Beach, CA

I just wanted to send you a quick note to thank you. Before I had my sessions with you, it was very hard for me to “sell” myself. Being a realtor, it was harmful to my business being uncomfortable talking to people, but after a few sessions, I am now more relaxed and I am now able to tell potential clients about me. Thanks again!!

Vickey| Long Beach, CA

My name is Renee and I have smoked for over 30 years, I have tried changing brands and even cutting back on how many I would smoke in a day. But I would always continue smoking. I wish to thank Michael Almaraz with Deeper States Hypnotherapy for giving me so much in our sessions the ability to not smoke, a sense calmness and empowerment like I’ve never known before. For the first time in my life I liked saying No Thank You, I don’t smoke. And the visual he has given me will live with me the rest of my life. I would like to welcome everyone trying to quit smoking to allow Deeper States hypnotherapy the chance to help you find the power to quit smoking and the power to live and breath air. My family and I both thank you.. May the power of the creator continue to bless and keep you in all you do to help others.. Many Blessings.

Renee| Long Beach, CA

I’ve known Michael for almost 7 years now, and the fact that I like and trust him so much gave me the confidence in him to try hypnotherapy. I was very impressed by his level of knowledge and professionalism and the extremely intuitive place from which he operates during each session. I had high expectations upon embarking on this journey with Michael, and I can happily and honestly say that they were met and exceeded. My outlook on life and situations are quite different in that I feel like the master or my fate rather than a servant to life’s many ups and downs. I know I am being more proactive and taking ownership of what I do, and I’m speaking up and asking for what I feel I deserve. For me, hypnosis has been an excellent tool for quieting my rational mind to penetrate to the subconscious part of it where the seeds of positive suggestion were planted and have already begun to flower.

Jennifer | Sherman Oaks, CA

I am so happy!!! My good friend, Stephanie, sent me your CD on weight control about a month and a half ago, and I have already lost ten lbs. Maybe more by now. I only have the CD not the weight program, but it’s working. Stephanie knew how much it meant to me to lose weight so she sent the CD all the way from CA to GA. Not only has the CD helped me with my weight but myself esteem as well. I am a beautiful black women and loving life.

Carol | Atlanta, GA

I have recently attended four of five sessions of hypnotherapy with Michael Almaraz of Deeper States Hypnotherapy. Before meeting with Mike I found myself compounded with depression, grief, restlessness, anxiety, body aches, and severe alcoholism. I was basically trapped in a vicious cycle of heavy drinking with no ability to eat or get adequate rest. I was on parole and a little over half way into a three year apprenticeship program of the Local 12 Operating Engineers as a heavy duty repairman. I was on the job where a fellow worker lost his life working on one of the earth moving machines and I found myself unable to stop thinking about the incident at work and really lost control of reality and my life. I was on the verge of losing my job and possibly returning back to prison. My fiance was very concerned and sought help on the internet and found Michael’s web site with the explanation of what hypnotherapy was and how it could possibly help me with the issues I was enduring. Each visit with Michael started with us talking about problems that seemed like impassable mountains. With each visit my problems became smaller and smaller, my stress level decreased dramatically, my appetite increased, I sleep much better and I find myself thinking and doing things that I had previously enjoyed. I have since been able to successfully discharge from parole. I have also received two substantial pay increases from work and a very good bonus. I am at step five of six of the apprentice program with great promise ahead of me. My memory has increased and I have gained the respect of my fellow workers once again. Hypnotherapy has allowed me to let go of bad thoughts and bring in good new thoughts, it has also given me the opportunity to create my own life.

Bobby | Whittier, CA

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to live my life to its fullest. You’ve given me the gift of communication. When I first visited Michael, it was for a speech impediment that held me back from saying what I really wanted to say. I would continually second guess the words that were coming out of my mouth which caused me to stutter. After visiting Michael, he allowed me to regain confidence in my speech and no longer do I think twice about stuttering. I can truly say that he allowed me to live my life on my own terms or as he says “by design”. Thank you Michael, I forever am in debt to you!

YSR | Torrance, CA

After trying to quit tobacco for what seemed like forever, this worked. Hypnotism isn’t some voodoo magic trick like I thought. It simply empowers you to make the changes you want.

Clay | Fontana, CA

Michael I want to thank you for your weight program. I had been trying to lose weight (again) for 2 years or more. I have tried every diet (almost ) thats in the book stores with out success. I have had a weight problem most of my life, I have now lost 20lbs since June 30, and I’m not really trying. I’m eating healthy fruit, vegetables and high protein. With your hypnosis I have been walking everyday, water exercises 3 times a week. I really cant believe its been almost 5 months and I’m enjoying it.

Georgia | Fountain Valley CA

Three months ago, I started with Michael to enhance my weight loss, to improve my self-image, to release my anger and fears, to build my self esteem and my confidence. Thanks to Michael’s help and through the use of hypnosis and self hypnosis, I have benefited in so many ways:

1. Dealing with and releasing my physical & emotional pains.
2. I was able to successfully return to work fulltime to a very physical job after knee surgery.
3. I was able to endure the discomfort/pain and lie still for 2 1/2 hours while having my eyebrows and eyelids tattooed with permanent makeup.
4. I have found a more positive and beneficial way in dealing with my husband’s bladder cancer surgeries and chemotherapy.
5. I have had continued success in my weightloss and new eating habits.
6. I now have a new and heightened awareness of others and my surroundings.

Thank you Michael for the help, the gifts and the tools you have given me. Thanks to you, I am happier, healthier and more in control. I have more appreciation of life and of my many blessings. Thank you again Michael…..you are the BEST!

Judy | Lakewood, CA

My son was initially skeptical about being hypnotized, but Michael helped put him at ease, and I saw remarkable results from the very first session. My son’s anxiety and depression have been greatly alleviated. Michael’s techniques helped so much. We’re very grateful!

Angela | California

I heard about your Hypnosis treatment to stop smoking from a friend, who came to you for hypnosis and has been a non smoker for 6 months. I was a smoker for 40 years and had only tried to quit smoking 1 time with the patch. I cheated and smoked ever morning before I put the patch on. For quite some time I have wanted to try hypnosis to help me quit smoking and since our November 7th, 2005 session I have been a non smoker, I can’t believe it myself and neither can my friends and family. I am breathing much easier, the constant coughing has stopped and I feel much better. Thank you Michael for helping me to quit smoking.

Sandy C.| California

I still listen to my CD and when I’m too busy it truly brings me back in line to get focused…. My CD is still working and I am enjoying the ride to Executive director at Prepaid Legal.

Donnette | California

Again, thank you so much for your caring insight and skill, Michael! What a wonderful gift you generated to my foot…doing better and better with it after antibiotic topical and oral and time off foot… great pain reduction.

Mary | California

Michael Almaraz of Deeper States Hypnotherapy helped me achieve weight loss thru a combination of hypnotherapy and a weight loss program utilizing a food diary, CD and exercise. The combination of steps in the program does work when followed. The food diary helps you see the foods and amounts you are consuming at each meal. Having to write down everything you eat forces your mind to think about if you really should eat this particular food and if so, how much to eat. Listening to the hypnotherapy CD each night reinforces the program between visits with Michael. While following the program steps, I lost 15 pounds in one month and have been able to keep the weight off. Deeper States Hypnotherapy is a great program.

Carol R. | Long Beach CA

Wow, Wonderful, I haven’t smoked since that day. I believe that I am so so okay with this life. I don’t need to hide and smoke anymore… How wonderful.

Miki I. | South Bay CA

After smoking for 20 years, I decided to get serious about my health. I’ve tried to quit many times, but always found myself irritable, and addicted to nicotine patches or gum. After hearing success stories from friends, I gave hypnotherapy a try. It’s been 3 weeks now, and I’m completely free from tobacco and nicotine! Thanks Michael for helping me in this transition! Hypnotherapy was one of the most incredible experiences that I’ve had in my lifetime! Thanks again!!

Airline/Stress Reduction Seminars Post September 11th Testimonials

I really did enjoy the session. I actually have listened to the relaxation CD since then. Considering the hormonal nightmare I was experiencing at the time, the whole experience enabled me to relax and focus the rest of the day at work. The following day was the day all heck broke loose. That’s when I listened to the CD again. I personally think it was a beneficial session and to be honest I was a bit skeptical at first. I really enjoyed the whole presentation.

MaryKat | California

Just wanted to let you know that I really enjoyed the presentation Michael gave us on Hypnosis, his knowledge of hypnotherapy was impressive. I left the presentation mentally and physically relaxed. Thank you for arranging such a wonderful experience!

Shelly | California

I found the session with Michael very relaxing and informative. I learned a little bit more of how the subconscious and conscious mind work and interact with each other, and how hypnosis helps them communicate better with each other to reduce problems. The self-hypnosis part of his presentation was very helpful to me. I am able to use much of this technique to help me relax and prepare for upcoming events. I plan on using more of his suggestions, such As Aromatherapy and use of Music.
