A hypnotist is teaching tricks of the mind to make ‘naughty’ and ‘horrible’ children behave better!
Lisa Machenberg says she can motivate children to do their chores, complete their homework and have better manners through hypnosis parenting techniques.
The mum-of-three, from California, admits to hypnotising her three children throughout their lives – with everything from potty training to excelling in exams – by bypassing the conscious mind and instructing their subconscious thoughts.
Lisa charges $125 per hour session and says that she has the ability to change ‘demons’ into ‘little angels’. Now she holds lectures teaching other parents how to hypnotise their children and says that mind influence is the ultimate form of parenting.
‘Hypnosis and parenting is a natural combination,’ says Lisa. ‘If we learn hypno-parenting, we learn how to hypnotise our children to be cooperative, peaceful, have containment and have good study habits because they have focus and have more resilience out there in the world.’
Lisa, 56, has been a certified hypnotist for over 23 years and is an instructor at the Hypnosis Motivation Institute in California. She believes that self-hypnosis helped her conceive her 19-year-old twin boys after fertility problems and she even hypnotised herself during childbirth.
‘I used hypnosis for the mind-body connection to help me conceive and carry my children. I had a very, very hard time having children. I used hypnosis in conjunction with western medicine and conceived twin boys. Then I used hypnosis so I could be very, very comfortable when I went into labour and then I used hypnosis to help the children sleep quickly, calmly, soundly and deeply all through the night.’
Lisa insists that hypnosis has helped her and her children get ahead in life: ‘I taught my children hypnosis so that they could have focus, concentration and be very calm taking their SATs to get in to college.’
However, Lisa also admits hypnotising her family to do things for her own gains. ‘I hypnotise my husband and my children to do things for my benefit all the time,’ she reveals. ‘When mums are happy, everybody is happy. When the wife is happy, everyone is happy.
‘We have a household to run and so many times I exert influence so that my children get their chores done so that the house runs efficiently.’
