Grace’s hypnosis has helped me for the past 4 years, from completely eliminating anxiety around food, detaching from negative relationships, and even increasing my financial abundance. In fact, whenever I feel something holding me back, self-hypnosis is one of the first tools I reach for.

“I kept asking the universe for peace and God's grace - "by the grace of God go I"...  There came a day when I felt like "this isn't living, it isn't fun" and that day I cried and prayed. I said I didn't want to live like this, take me or send me the help that I need. The next day, God sent me grace - literally!”

[My thoughts on hypnosis were] hopeful. I believe that a lot of our issues and problems originate from the subconscious beliefs and attitudes handed down to us by our parents in our early years of life and that this programming affects our perceptions and how we interpret, react and deal with the experiences we call into our lives and indeed, what we call into our lives is the direct result of that early programming which is much stronger than simply saying, I don't believe that or this isn't my truth. Our lives have been built on these foundations whether we think we believe it or not...  I do believe though, that it is possible to reprogram our subconscious thoughts, but I didn't know how to go about it, how long it would take to ensure success and especially, what program would affect positive change. I mean, I'm sure my parents were doing and saying what they thought was best for my well-being and yet it is very obvious to me how their beliefs have impacted on my self worth and success. So whilst I was hopeful, I was also very conscious that what I replace the old programming with had to be right.

Anxiety [was the first issue I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I believe that our health issues are the direct result of our emotional experiences. I first developed asthma and the breathlessness triggers of anxiety which in turn escalates the asthma and [causes] more anxiety. Life was becoming difficult and unenjoyable and an incident with my daughter escalated these effects to panic responses. In order to begin healing, I needed to get control over the anxiety. [Secondly, I wanted to address] abundance. Asthma is related to self-worth and grief and the incident with my daughter stripped me of all worth. I raised my children on my own and having felt so little self-esteem as a young adult myself, I had done so much work on self-improvement, had studied early childhood and was always so conscious of what I said to my kids, how I responded to them, what I was teaching them - my kids are everything to me and I lived for them. I'm not talking "helicopter parenting" - I am talking about teaching them assertive behaviour and considering the effects of their life choices, teaching them about compassion and kindness and communication and love. We didn't have a lot when they were growing up and I usually put my needs last in order for them to have what other kids had. I really thought I was a great mother - this was the one thing that I got absolutely right. So when my adult daughters, both now with children of their own, suddenly turned on me; I was devastated. 3 days earlier I was the best mother in the world. My eldest said things that had never happened and she blocked me out of her life for 9 months. My youngest blocked me for 3 weeks and then came back because she needed money. When my eldest did agree to talk with me, she again said things that hadn't happened and if I tried to say otherwise she would scream and threaten to cut me out again. During this time, my heart broke and I felt absolute despair (much worse than grief) but both emotions affect the lungs. Everything that I had worked on becoming as a person, everything that I believed about myself, all my self-worth and self-esteem was stripped away and I could feel my life slipping away. I was dying, being smothered, breathing was something I had to force myself to do and the asthma and growing anxiety were making it harder. I still don't understand what happened but I can see a few of my failures - in putting myself last all the time, I taught them that I don't matter as much as they do; in helping them (because I never wanted their lives to be as hard as mine had been), they saw it as buying their love because I had made their childhoods hard; by not telling them why I had left their father, he had room to tell them lies; because I was so busy I had to choose my battles so it wouldn't be at their expense, they saw it as me bowing out because I must have been wrong; and now if I try to share how hard it was to raise kids alone, they say "plenty of other people do it" and they don't get that the other people they are talking about have financial help from their "ex" where I didn't - but that's just another lie their father tells them. When you have spent a lifetime of deliberately choosing not to engage in mudslinging, how do you come back from that. Their father is a bully, they had begun spending a lot of time with him and overnight my children became bullies. I found it hard to deal with. I can't take anxiety drugs and don't want to. Often the symptoms would escalate in places where it wasn't convenient or possible to stop and meditate and the 20+ years of self-development had crumbled after the incident with my daughter. So hypnosis seemed like my last hope to hang on to life, a miracle that could enable me to begin healing and it offered the possibility of a lifelong solution. I had been looking around locally but the programs offered where quit smoking and weight loss. None of them felt right. I kept asking the universe for peace and God's grace - "by the grace of God go I"...  There came a day when I felt like "this isn't living, it isn't fun" and that day I cried and prayed. I said I didn't want to live like this, take me or send me the help that I need. The next day, God sent me grace - literally! I opened facebook and right at the top of my feed was Grace Smith-Feitosa offering a FREE ANXIETY hypnosis challenge! I had never seen Grace's previous works, or come across anything about hypnosis on facebook and yet here she was, with a free challenge perfectly designed for the immediate help I needed to enable me with enough healing to begin working on healing all of me. This could not be a coincidence! With hope, I clicked on her first video and Grace sprang to life - with all her inner beauty and sincerity and contagious enthusiasm. I felt inspired and overwhelmed. I had prayed for God's "Grace" and here she was! In that moment I felt so grateful and loved and that was the beginning of my journey and my introduction to hypnosis.

One of the biggest causes of my health problems has been that I see the world through 'rose coloured glasses' because I get so hurt by the things that people do and say and no matter how many times I get hurt, no matter how many lessons I have learned, I am never prepared for the next one. I feel things so deeply. I give my all. I believe and have passion. Although I know how strong I am because of the challenges I have had to overcome throughout my life, sometimes I feel so tired and feel that I really am "too soft" for this world. I can literally feel the hurt that others feel or how something affects someone. My body is also very affected by my emotional state and it aligns with what I am feeling. That means that western medicine doesn't always work well for me because I need to heal the cause of my emotional state before the symptoms will disappear. This is why hypnosis works so well. It isn't a quick fix and I know that I have work still to do but by healing the thoughts that created the symptoms, I know it is possible. My first challenge was anxiety. Anxiety and asthma go hand in hand. The worse the asthma is, the worse the anxiety is, the harder it is to breathe at all. As you can imagine, it was a vicious circle. I am still not completely healed from anxiety because I still have asthma but the challenge stopped me from panicking when it occurred and that was enough to allow me to begin to heal some of the many misaligned thoughts that eventually resulted in asthma. Some of these are low self-worth, feeling less than, feeling like you can't be yourself, you must be perfect in order to be loved, feeling you lack something, feeling deprived, feeling smothered and stifled... Some of these thoughts are addressed in the abundance challenge and yes, I am manifesting money from known and unknown sources, but my ultimate goal is to manifest good health so that I can live an enjoyable life. Other thoughts that impact health will be addressed in various other challenges. I have been reluctant to admit that I also developed nodules on my lungs and esophagus and the lung specialist is waiting to see if it will become lung cancer. Lungs are related to grief and of course, nodules and cancer are basically from unexpressed feelings, regret, unworthiness, bubbling up or eating away at you or both. I am in my early 50's and I refuse to let this become my story. I know that my body is capable of healing itself. For me, that means healing the thoughts that created these symptoms. I have spent years in self-development, trying to become my best version, I have studied and grown from the teachings of Deepak Chopra, Louise Hays, Wayne Dyer, Maryanne Williamson, Ekhart Tollie, Abraham, Doreen Virtue, Bruce Lipton, Dr Emoti, Stephen Hawkins and the celebrity list goes on and on... Honestly, I would go so far as to say that I probably have one of the largest book libraries of self help, spiritual leaders, quantum science, healers and innovators covering every topic known to man that many of you have ever seen! And they are all fantastic and complement each other and make perfect sense but for me, all of my years of study was still stripped away in an instant, by the only 2 people on earth that could ever do that - my children! The child of my body, my kiss from God.... I have done the groundwork. This time I need permanent healing. The only way I can see to do that is to reprogram my programming, to overwrite that early "software" with new, sustainable scripts. I know that hypnosis is the way to do that because from that first challenge, even when I have been in circumstances that have made me anxious, I have never again wished for death to take me. I am healing. I am on a healing journey and by the "Grace Smith-Feitosa" of God, go I.... Thank you Grace, my saving Grace. I love you, I'm taking baby steps but I am moving. I will always be eternally grateful to God and the universe for sending Grace to me and as I heal, I am excited to know that my true purpose is unfolding.

“I have been able to manifest many things into my life with the help of Grace and hypnosis to reprogram my mind.”

I didn’t have too many thoughts [on hypnosis]. I went through 100 and 200 levels of psychology for nursing school. They didn’t touch too much on hypnotherapy. We didn’t know how life-transforming it could be for our patients. I discovered hypnotherapy for hypnobirthing. I thought hypnosis was some circus way to control people “magically”

Anxiety, fear, self esteem, being content/living in the now, physical pain, abundance blocks, self-sabatoging behaviors. I wanted to fix [these issues with hypnosis] because I, just like everybody else, deserves an abundant life free of paralyzing ego problems. Ever since having my son I am more driven than ever to grow.

I wanted to help with my anxiety so I listened to hypnobirthing while in was pregnant. That’s where it began.  I began participating in Grace’s group challenges. Then I realized it can help with EVERYTHING since the subconscious controls everything. I have helped cope with anxiety, depression, pain, chronic Lyme disease and co infections, and manage to bring in more abundance into my life. I am enrolled in Grace’s hypnotherapy program. I have been able to manifest many things into my life with the help of Grace and hypnosis to reprogram my mind.

I thought [hypnosis] was like what you see on TV...a little weird and that you don’t have control of yourself. My thoughts were that you get under a “spell” of some sort!

I knew that my inner voice always told me I can’t get what I really want or that I am undeserving of the things I really want in life which are attached to money and abundance. I also had an inner voice saying “more money more problems.” As a new business owner in the holistic wellness and nutrition industry, I knew that I needed to fix this mentality in order to inspire healthy living in my community more efficiently.

I have been enlightened in that I will get what I am looking for, but I must set the intention of WHAT it is I am looking for each day in order to see it and achieve it. After setting my days up with intention to win, acknowledging / respecting myself as a true resource for others, and changing my mantra to “you have so much to offer everyone around you,” I became much more confident and my business started to grow during the group challenge on abundance.

Grace's sessions are made for everyone with any background or beliefs, and everything rang true to my unique beliefs. I never expected to be as drawn into each group session but I was! Grace Smith leads her sessions with a calm and peaceful confident that truly empowers her participants.

“Things began shifting very shortly after a few days of listening to those recordings. In fact, the next day after I began listening, I felt inspired to login to all my accounts, set up automatic payments, put together a spreadsheet of all my expenses, canceled ongoing memberships that I wasn't using, and getting things in order. After a few more days of listening to the recordings, I started getting ideas for a new direction in my career.”

I didn't have any strong feelings about [hypnosis]. The only prior association I had with it was past life regression. I suppose my assumption was that this was the primary purpose of hypnosis. I also was somewhat aware of stage hypnosis, but it was mostly an afterthought.

Feeling anxious about my finances [was an issue I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. It was difficult for me to stay organized regarding my finances and sometimes I would dread looking at my accounts so intensely that I would avoid it and then sometimes bills wouldn't be paid on time or I'd over spend. It just seemed like no matter what I would try or no matter how many alarms I would set on my phone or in my calendar, I could not ever seem to feel calm and confident about dealing with or tracking my finances.

I began listening to the Ultimate Anxiety Relief program in Grace Space as well as the Financial Abundance Binary recording in the Grace Space app.

I knew I wanted to release anxiety, and I also knew that most of my anxiety was related to my finances.

Things began shifting very shortly after a few days of listening to those recordings. In fact, the next day after I began listening, I felt inspired to login to all my accounts, set up automatic payments, put together a spreadsheet of all my expenses, canceled ongoing memberships that I wasn't using, and getting things in order. After a few more days of listening to the recordings, I started getting ideas for a new direction in my career. One of the big ideas was to start a local sacred women's circle, something I'd normally feel terrified to do. While I am still in the stages of putting these ideas together. I've already begun reaching out to acquaintances and have been enjoying the process so much. Not only are these recordings helping me heal my financial anxiety, they're helping me feel safe and trusting of myself in my ideas for new streams of income as well as moving forward in my desired career.

I didn't really have thoughts on hypnosis one way or another, to be honest. It had never really landed on my radar. But once I discovered you through Danny (I think!) and you explained hypnosis to us as just "Meditation with a Goal," I became super interested to try it out!

Feeling confident in myself and my creativity again after getting sober, conquering addiction (including sugar cravings!) and learning to love myself again. Also eliminating chronic extreme anxiety and attracting abundance! I wanted to fix these things because I've been through so much in my life and was ready to start fresh, to start new. The time is now!

(First of all, I have an entire life story that should be a Hallmark Movie. It includes being born in the Midwest as a virtuosic singer/songwriter and live performer, losing my father at a young age yet his body still being here on earth due to a traumatic brain injury (then having a spiritual connection with him now), witnessing addiction in all its forms break apart my family, getting a Vocal Scholarship to the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, then discovering that addiction had also grasped onto me in all its forms (co-dependent relationships, #MeToo, drugs, alcohol, pills, sugar, food, etc.) in my early 20s living in Hollywood and going down that dark path for 3+ years... then the heartwarming story of overcoming addiction at 25 years old and getting sober, writing a hit song out of it, and becoming a Healer, Transformation Coach, and studying Hypnotherapist. Finally able to live out my Life Purpose - to be a Light for others so that they too may See.

At this point now - January 2018 - I have used Hypnosis to attract over $10,000 of EXTRA money into my life (major ABUNDANCE) and have also relieved chronic EXTREME ANXIETY, along with everything else listed above. Using the amazing healing capacity of Hypnotherapy, I finally feel confident in myself and my creativity again. After getting sober, I have conquered addiction (including sugar cravings!) and have learned to love myself again.
From her second survey:

At first, I only signed up to receive your Grace Notes, introduced through Danny J after doing her "Find the Money" Program since I was drowning in student loan and credit card debt. I was intrigued by these Grace Notes and instantly felt close to you, as I read/write/think/teach the same thing. From there I researched your website and felt a God-nudge to learn and teach hypnosis as well, from you specifically. The year was 2016 and I noticed your Hypnotherapy School offering had just launched. I really thought about signing up right then and there (mind you, without EVER even listening to one of your hypnosis recordings - just basing it off my impression of you and feeling of good, positive, loving energy!) but at the time my financial situation didn't allow me to be able to move forward. However, from that moment I kept following your journey as a leader (even more intensely this time), joined your Weight Loss Challenge GraceSpace Facebook Group, and had my first hypnosis success! I then purchased a few of your recordings and began to listen to them daily.

I experienced immediate results with the No More Sugar Hypnosis and became an even bigger believer. Feeling the addictive 'need' to eat sweets and junk food to numb myself had been taken away from me! It was a miracle.

When I love something I spread it far and wide fast, so from there I started telling all my friends about you, your wonderful Divine Purpose, the fact that you are also a Lightworker and leader in this new age, and knew 1000% that I must study with you. My intuition is almost ALWAYS correct, and after getting sober 2 years ago I have learned to follow my heart more and more.

Then, in the FB Weight Loss Group, when you shared in one of your live videos that you were sober as well and overcame your addiction, I broke down and cried. Tears of joy. Right in that moment, I knew again that God had led me to you for a VERY important reason - and that deeper connection we share of going through the 12 Steps together - connects us in the matrix even more. This was all divinely orchestrated, so it must be done. It was God's will to work with you, so now the excitement kicked in even more, know that I was finally following MY purpose!

Hypnotherapy is such a beautiful healing modality and a way for us to give back to the world. I know that my passion - just like yours has - will lead many new people to heal and recover from their struggles and challenges. Hallelujah and Amen! I can't wait to continue healing myself through Hypnotherapy alongside your lovely expertise to add this modality as well to my practice as a Healer and Lightworker.

More of my Hypnotherapy success since then can be contributed to doing the Anxiety recordings in Grace Space and truly feeling better than I've felt in a long time. Now I can BREATHE through things and feel a deep sense of peace within, instead of fear. And since doing your latest Abundance Challenge, I have attracted over $10,000 of EXTRA MONEY into my life! That includes things coming out of nowhere... getting a check for $8,000 from an old car accident settlement finally coming through, signing a $3500 songwriting deal with a minimum of $10,000 in royalties coming in once it is released, signing on a new healing client who reached out to me on Day 3 of the Abundance Challenge and purchasing my $1500 CyberScan package, among many other examples. I have a full list if you'd like to take a look 🙂

I am an actor and came to Grace initially to work on anxiety in auditions and performance. After a month of working with her I booked a leading role in my first National Tour! I have continued to coach with her in phone sessions as I travel around the country performing.

After just a few sessions, she helped me realize a dream that I had been struggling to achieve for years. Grace is exceptional at what she does. She is warm, intelligent and creative and uses these skills to craft individualized sessions that are extremely effective. In the coaching portion of our session, she directs me to talk about one specific issue that I’d like to work on and then expertly recalls the specific images and language that I used during the hypnosis portion of the session.

When coaching with Grace, it always feels like I am being gently guided to heal myself. The experience has been invaluable to my career and my life. I have already referred several close friends to her and recommend her highly.

I was thinking about trying [hypnosis], but never got around to actually doing it.

I have a lot of traumas and I suffer from both mental health issues as well as addiction.

Since I began receiving Grace Notes, I've been able to think more clearly and get in touch with myself more. I wake up every morning and thank God for another chance to make life better. I look forward to the day ahead now knowing that there is hope. With the help of these Grace Notes, I'm able to focus on the positive things in life rather than all the negative. I'm moving forward in my recovery, I'm stable on my medication and I've made a few true friends. I'm open to growing now. My hope now is to try hypnosis at some point and possibly stop dwelling on my past trauma so much.

I had a wonderful and powerful experience with hypnosis to stop a terrible addiction to diet soda. I have basically been on a “slow drip” of diet soda for 20 years. I was aware of the danger and toxic nature of artificial sweeteners but I was unable to stop on my own. I was at my wits end so I decided to try hypnosis.

My Mother had used hypnosis many years ago to quit smoking and had success beating a 40+ year addiction with one session. When I met Grace I felt instantly at ease. [Grace Smith] is kind and also very knowledgeable. During my first session, she provided me with a very powerful image that helped me really see how horrible diet soda is and the damage it can do. From that moment I knew I was done. She also provided me the tools to take what I learned in my session and continue the positive reinforcement on my own.

As of today, it has been 6 weeks since I have had any diet soda or artificial sweeteners. I’ve replaced them with water and have no desire to return to that old disgusting habit. I feel great, my skin looks better, and I have more energy. I’ve even begun to experience weight loss too. I feel such a sense of freedom and calm with each session, and I would absolutely recommend Grace Smith to anyone struggling with a habit or behavior that is keeping them from getting to their best self. Worth every penny! Thank you so much Grace!

How can this really work? [That’s what I thought about hypnosis before working with you.]

At first it was weight loss, then I signed up for a Grace Space account so I could access the library of hypnosis. I was gaining and gaining weight and thought this may be due to my eating or addiction to sugar. I wanted to get healthy again.

I have done several types of hypnosis, YouTube has tons of Grace recordings. I have been able to get to sleep. I have given up sugar. I have created a calm space for myself so there is no more anxiety. When I get an email it is like Grace is speaking to me that day; it’s like she knows exactly what I am going through. Her calming voice sits in my head when I encounter any chaotic episodes in life. I had dealt with a bad manager and while dealing with this her videos, voice and calmness helped me not allow him to take over my life. I am in a challenge now for money, I have been able to dig deep into why I think what I think about money and to let those bad feelings go and live free from the chains that were placed when I was younger.

That includes things coming out of nowhere... getting a check for $8,000 from an old car accident settlement finally coming through, signing a $3500 songwriting deal with a minimum of $10,000 in royalties coming in once it is released, signing on a new healing client who reached out to me on Day 3 of the Abundance Challenge and purchasing my $1500 CyberScan package, among many other examples. I have a full list if you'd like to take a look 🙂
At first, I only received your Grace Notes. I was intrigued by them and instantly felt close to you as I read/write/think/teach the same thing. From there I researched your website and felt a God-nudge to learn and teach hypnosis as well, from you specifically. The year was 2016 and I noticed your Hypnotherapy School offering had just launched - I really thought about doing it right then and there (mind you, without EVER even listening to one of your hypnosis recordings - just basing it all off my first impression of you and feeling of good, positive, loving energy!!) but at the time my finances didn't allow me to move forward. However, from that moment I kept following your journey as a leader (even more intensely this time), joined your Weight Loss GraceSpace FB Group, and had my first success! I then purchased a few of your recordings and began to use them daily. I experienced immediate results with the No More Sugar Hypnosis and became an even bigger believer. When I love something I spread it far and wide fast, so from there I started telling all my friends about you, your wonderful Divine Purpose, the fact that you are also a Lightworker and leader in this new age, and knew 100% that I must study with you. My intuition is almost ALWAYS correct, and after getting sober 2 years ago I have learned to follow my heart more and more. Then, in the FB Weight Loss Group, when you shared on one of your live videos that you were 4 years sober, I broke down and cried. Right in that moment, I knew again that God had led me to you for a VERY important reason - and that deeper connection we share of going through the 12 Steps together - connects us in the matrix even more. It was all divinely orchestrated, so it must be done. It is God's will to work with you, so now the excitement kicked in even more, knowing that I was following MY purpose! Hypnotherapy is SUCH a beautiful healing modality and a way for us to give back to the world. I know that my passion - just like yours has - will lead many new people to heal and recover from their challenges. Hallelujah and Amen! I can't wait to continue healing myself through Hypnotherapy alongside your lovely expertise and add this modality as well to my practice as a Healer and Lightworker.

“My previous thoughts on hypnosis went back and forth between believing that is was totally fake (making people bawk like chickens, etc) or scary magic.”

Addiction, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Fear [were issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I survived a very violent home invasion sexual assault by a masked man years ago. The events of that day changed my brain. I suddenly lived in constant fear and trusted no one. I developed a substance abuse problem as I tried to escape my fear and an eating disorder. My perspective on the world had completely shifted and I felt so stuck.
Six years ago, I finally made the decision to get clean and sober. Through recovery I began seeking out more ways to heal. Discovering Grace Smith's hypnotherapy was absolutely incredible for my healing journey! I started focusing on the PTSD since I still suffered an occasional flashback or flare up of fear. I began listening to a Grace Space hypno recording every single day. They were between 3-40 minutes. It became a very sacred part of my practice and I could feel the shifts in the way my brain was working. Her recordings were like next-level meditations. The benefits lasted beyond the recording itself and the changes in my neural pathways has had a lasting effect. I'm calmer, more centered, I have over 6 years of recovery with no cravings, and I haven't experienced a PTSD effect in months!
Today I have my dream jobs as a professional Singer and a Motivational Speaker! (www.blazebell.com www.blazeanderic.com) I'm a present and healthy wife and a Mom to 2 bright kids! Thanks in part to Grace Smith's work I am now able to help others heal in the ways that I have. I am eternally grateful!

[I felt] intrigued and curious; open to the [hypnosis] experience.

Compulsive nail biting that had evolved into head scratch.

I was a nail biter since childhood. Bit my nails down to the skin (would bite a piece, peel the nail down to the nail bed, then bit it off which created a little hole. Then I bit from the bottom up). Super disgusting, right? Over time I got control over the compulsion (frequent manicures, self-control, etc.). During a stressful time in my life I found myself scratching my head. I wasn't biting my nails anymore but I would have a little itch on my scalp, scratch it, get a tiny scab, scratch it off, over and over and over again. I realized that it was essentially the same habit manifesting in a new way. And it was/is an anti-social and self-destructive habit that I wanted to break. I was very receptive to hypnosis. I was very open and wanted [hypnosis] to work so I didn't resist even though it was weird and a little scary to give up control. The experience was relaxing and invigorating. And I stopped head scratching immediately. Just lost the urge. It wasn't like I had to "try" to control the impulse, it just wasn't there. Amazing. This last about 4 months. (Here's the bad part but you don't have to talk about this in the book.) When I started to regress I called the woman I worked with and she had left Grace's office and then Grace left Grace's NY office. So, I didn't go back and the habit reemerged. And that's my story. A semi-success story.

January 6, 2014 is an important date for me. It’s the date that, via the help and teaching of Grace Smith, I took my power back. In doing so, it was if I was reborn. You can’t go up the mountain and not come down the other side a changed being. I am still Leah; I still love to laugh, read, cook, spend time with my children (human and furry), family and friends. I still hate asparagus, bad drivers and when my hair is staticky. I am still me and yet I am not.

I took part in Grace’s “trance-formation challenge” and came down the other side of the mountain a better me. One who was able to recognize anxiety as it was creeping up and stop it in its tracks. One who was able to live fully in the moment and experience whatever emotion came with that moment and still have an underlying sense of peace through it all. I was able to go to my doctor and tell her that I was finally ready to be weaned off the anxiety meds that had helped me up until this point and then was able to celebrate once I had.

I walked taller, sat straighter, looked people in the eye and was filled with genuine confidence. I was also able to empathize on an even deeper level and to sho1 who weren’t walking tall, those who couldn’t control their anxiety, those who weren’t happy, confident and at peace. And I was able to refer them to Grace and to show them, by my own actions and newfound “me-ness” that change was possible, attainable and permanent.

Tonight, myself and the other two challenge winners were blessed to be able to take part in a group session with Grace. We were able to share in more depth all that we had learned and accomplished and all that we still had left to accomplish. We were able to connect, build trust and friendship and a community; a community that was like minded in wanting to better ourselves so that we in turn, even if just by our actions, could better others. It was a surreal moment in that I have never felt so connected, so open, so receptive, and so empowered.

Two of Grace’s challenges to us were to write a life plan and a mantra for ourselves. While my full life plan can be found on her Facebook page, the small part I want to share here is that I was so inspired by her willingness and want to help others, that I now plan on becoming a licensed hypnotherapist. I feel it is my calling to give back what she helped me to receive. And it is because i feel that way that my mantra is: “Passion, Purpose, Peace.”

If you have tried everything else and still feel lost and embattled, let Grace help you take your power back so that you can live!!!

“Now I have over 1000 followers on Periscope and enjoy scoping regularly. I even took up a leadership role as part of Global Meditation Scope, a Periscope event.”

Before finding Grace Smith, I had had limited exposure to hypnosis. I knew that hypnosis could be used to deal with things like getting rid of phobias and bad habits, such as smoking. I also knew that it could be used to access past lives and even the time between incarnated lives.

I wanted to get over my fear of pressing the 'Start broadcasting' button on Periscope.

What a wonderful surprise it was to have Grace Smith as the host of the Periscope Summit Live in San Francisco in January of 2016. I had already been following Grace on Periscope and had been enjoying her hypno-scopes that she does weekday afternoons. They always help to bring my stress level down and allow me to experience peace and calmness.

I was in a very funny place at Summit Live. Let me explain...I had done many live broadcasts on Periscope in the past, but with a great deal of anxiety. Then I got busy with a personal project and stopped broadcasting. After this break from it, I could not bear the thought of hitting that 'Start broadcast' button. The fear and resistance I experienced were incredible.

I also had this ticket to Summit Live which I had bought when I was still scoping fairly regularly. The thought of even going to the summit caused me great anxiety. I really wanted to bail on the whole thing except that I had a voice in my head telling me to go—that it would ultimately be good for me to attend. So I did.

I was so fearful of broadcasting by now, that the thought of broadcasting some of the panels at the event where I didn't even have to be on camera, terrified me. Along came Grace Smith to the stage to charmingly welcome us all to the event and that was where my shift began. Grace did a group hypnosis with us where she used positive affirmations and visualizations so that we would feel empowered to hit that big, red 'Start broadcast' button.

After that session, I sensed into staring at that red button and pressing it I could tell that my anxiety had already gone down a great deal. Later that day, I was actually able to broadcast a panel. It was my first 'scope' in about 2 months. It was truly a healing experience for me. I then scoped several more panels.

The next day, I went up into my hotel room to prepare for another scope. This time I was going to be in front of the camera sharing my story of the fear I had experienced surrounding scoping again and how Grace Smith and hypnotherapy helped me to overcome it. As I stared at the 'Start broadcast' button, I was amazed to notice that my anxiety level was even less than the previous day. Grace had mentioned that the effects of hypnosis expand with time and I certainly did experience that.

Now I have over 1000 followers on Periscope and enjoy scoping regularly. I even took up a leadership role as part of Global Meditation Scope, a Periscope event. I was in charge of new or infrequent broadcasters who wanted to be official hosts of the event. I became their Peri-Godmother encouraging them to scope regularly and giving them my guidance and support to be successful on the app. I am also in the process of building a Periscope channel with other broadcasters contributing to it.

Am I glad I followed the guidance I received to get my buns to Summit Live? You betcha! Otherwise, I would not have had that hypnosis session with Grace Smith and may not have gotten back into broadcasting. And not only that...I likely would not be attending Grace Space Hypnotherapy School! Grace's simple group hypnotherapy session helped me get out of a major slump I was in and now I feel like I am fully on my 'path.'  Thanks Grace!

I was curious [about hypnosis] but had no idea the profound effect it would have on my life.

[I wanted to address] sleep, anxiety, procrastination.  I am working on my own business and working outside the home part-time, and I'd really like to build my confidence and reduce my anxiety and build the courage to be as successful as I can be!

So for a few years, I've focused on sleeping 8 hours a night. Trying to be in bed by 11 and up around 7. Some days it's a little less, some days it's more, but I know that one of the keys to better health is a good night's sleep. I was having the craziest stress dreams. They were always the same content. I'm alone in the restaurant, (which isn't ever really the restaurant, but a field, a hotel, a golf course, etc) and everyone needs a server and coffee and I'm the only one there, there not enough coffee cups and there is no coffee made. Those of you in the service industry know exactly what I'm talking about.


Well, a few weeks ago my friend Rebekah Borucki introduced me to Grace Smith. I signed up for her Grace Space program and starting using most of the therapies, but made a point of listening to "Think Happy" and I downloaded her app which has a SLEEP track. Every night just before I go to bed I listen to that SLEEP track and I realized I AM NO LONGER HAVING STRESS DREAMS. It took me about a week to realize they had STOPPED completely. I have just had the longest work week in the past year, some nights only getting 5 hours of sleep, but STILL no crazy stress dreams.


I worked three times the hours I normally do, no weird dreams and every night I slept like a baby. My first day off in 7 days and I Feel GREAT!

I just didn't think [hypnosis] worked, or would work on me. I didn't understand how close it was to meditation, and I hated meditation... So we were off to a bad start ! But positive thinking was appealing to me, so I decided to try it out.

I just needed to get my anxiety levels to drop down. My depression was getting worse again, and I wanted to find balance, because I could feel myself starting to become aggressive to my loved ones from the pain, and that was out of the question. I was also freaking out because I had no clue what I would be doing the next year... Or even what I wanted ! There is nothing more frightening than not even knowing your own mind. I help onto anything I could to find my path, which also, incidentally, made me hold onto the right things, and get the right result.

I am very bad at discipline, and I was amazed when I effortlessly didn't miss a single session on Periscope. The more I practised, the more I felt like my vision was clearing up. When I realised Grace Smith had taught me back something essential that I had forgotten : how to calm down! I felt so relieved, it was like a revelation. The calm, grounded energy I was looking for was mine at last. It gave me the possibility to look out for what I wanted, fearlessly, and as I was in the middle of an important decision-making time (aka. what do I do once I finish my bachelor's degree), I was in desperate need of this kind of support. I wanted to keep depression at bay to make sure my decision was mine and had nothing to do with my illness.


Now I'm off to a master's degree with a wonderful subject and teacher to guide me, I've created my own rescue group with a friend, I keep steadily trying to get my driving licence -everything I'm awfully bad at merged into a single activity- and I'm going to look for a summer job for the first time ever.
I'm not scared, I'm not sad, I'm not confused anymore. I can finally appreciate the present time, and look forward to living the future.
Thank you for teaching me, Grace Smith.

I only knew hypnosis from movies , I imagined that you are going to make me fall asleep and control me or something. My family still has this idea; they get shocked when I tell them "I tried hypnosis" they were like " did you fall asleep? These things are not popular here in middle east.

We have lots of exams here in UAE , and the time I heard Grace scope was just the day before my math final exam, I had troubles with anxiety and focus 🙂

Every time I tried hypnosis, I felt so relaxed and calm during my studying sessions when I actually was freaking out and sometimes, I couldn't solve some questions in my book , I had lots of things left to study and no time, tt was midnight clock was ticking, I just couldn't move forward which made the situation worse! But suddenly I saw the notification that Grace is scoping. I said to myself lets try! I looked to this scope as my last chance to feel better before my exams, I felt so lucky because Grace played a recording "which is available now in Grace in your pocket App " It was a delightful trip to increase focus, productivity .. I could already feel my confidence, focus, [sense of] calmness increase before even reaching the middle of the recording! I was in a wonderful state when I got back to my books, just after the hypnoscope I could do all the problems that I couldn't do very very easily! Without even thinking, my mind was very clear, I felt secure and in peace. The next day in the classroom I was confident when solving questions and I remembered the recording in the exam and felt so focused. The exam went smoothly and guess what ? I got 100. 🙂 Alhamdulilah

All I saw was about hypnosis on TV through people entertainment, appeared a people who did she slept and then she do something like eating an onion thinking it was an apple, always brought to the entertainment and not a science and form of relaxation

I am very stressed with traffic, I live in São Paulo one of the cities with the worst traffic the world and am also very anxious. I am very critical at the intelligence and it makes me intolerant and aggressive with people.


I want to relax more and improve socializing with friends and family leaving certain things aside and be more patient.

I started follow [when I] have a little time. I don't speak English very well, but what helps me a lot is the music and the serene voice of Grace; it soothes and makes me imagine colors - this technique of relaxation helps me, when I know I'll get traffic, I put 3 minutes the sound of the #relaxabrasil or when something happens at home and I lock myself in the room and place a sound and I'm thinking of good things, when I open the door I feel someone else.

Always curious about [hypnosis]. Saw [Grace Smith] on Periscope and was actually able to be hypnotized for the first time in my life!

Being able to relax. Being able to think positively

Well, the success story is very short because I've been unable to afford the sessions. I am on disability... But I was amazed when I saw [Grace Smith] on Periscope! I followed [Grace Smith] directions and the next thing you know anxiety-relief and self-confidence came to me immediately after the session lasted for a couple of weeks! Like I said, since I am on disability I am sorry to say that I cannot afford [Grace Smith] sessions even though I think they could change my life forever. Please keep up the good work. Always looking forward to [Grace Smith] sessions on periscope. They changed my life but for only a little while.

Grace Smith coincidentally came into my life precisely when I needed her, and thank God she did! I hired her for trouble with anxiety and memory, both of which she was able to help me with. Grace was very calming and understanding and gave me an environment in which I felt comfortable to do the hypnotherapy exercises in.

I went into hypnosis like I do everything else- open minded with a hint of skepticism. But I’m happy to say that Grace really did help me and she even taught me self-hypnosis so when I’m not in our sessions I have a mental tool I can use if I feel uncomfortable or stressed. The tools she taught me can be used at anytime in any place to relieve stress and bring relaxation.

I was able to regain some important memories and I feel much calmer at a constant level without even doing the self-hypnosis. The little things I used to find stressful don’t bother me so much and I can even find some enjoyment in them.

The deep relaxation I felt during and after our sessions helped me get better sleep and allowed me to be generally calmer in every day life. Grace was understanding, intelligent, and her presence was very soothing.

I was able to relate to Grace on so many levels that It made my experience of hypnosis a lot more beneficial as I felt confident in her abilities and relaxed in her presence. Just her gentle voice is enough to put you to sleep!

When it comes to suffering with anxiety I don’t think you can put a price on finding some relief from it. I would pay it all over again.

I would recommend hypnosis to anyone who is suffering from anxiety. At the very least it will provide you with deep relaxation periods during and directly after your sessions. It will also give you a ” go to ” technique to use if you panic when your on your own.

I would suggest Grace to anyone of my friends or family- in fact I already have!

I have lived with anxiety and panic attacks associated with phobias and family issues for most of my life. I have found means of healing myself, but I looked to Grace Smith to provide even more tools to accomplish goals that I wasn’t able to on my own – more specifically, chronic nightmares and relationship issues with family members.

I’ve had several sessions with Grace Smith, and each one left me with a greater sense of calm and empowerment. The most remarkable result was the instant cessation of my chronic nightmares. I began to sleep better, helping me to function better during the day and improving my overall mood.

Not only would I recommend hypnosis to anyone struggling with similar issues to mine, I would recommend it to everyone. Hypnosis isn’t just for people with problems. It can also be a tool to improve work performance, strengthen personal relationships, and develop a deeper understanding of self. I use a lot of Grace Smith’s techniques in my personal meditation practice and with my own students.

Grace is an understanding, gentle, and compassionate hypnocoach who was sensitive to my personal needs and limits. I always felt in control during our sessions. She felt more like an assistant to my self-healing, which left me with an even strong belief that I have the power to change my circumstances for the better.”

I had tried self hypnosis in the past based on books or articles I had read, but I struggled to do it on my own without guidance.

Depression and Anxiety [were the issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].

I was severely depressed, unemployed, and living in my parents’ basement.  My mental and physical health had deteriorated so much that I could hardly get out of bed.  On the days that I was able to muster up the strength to try and apply for jobs I was often overcome with anxiety attacks.  One day, I found a video on YouTube of Grace leading a guided hypnosis.  I couldn’t believe how free I felt after just a few minutes of hypnosis.  I quickly found the 21 day hypnosis sessions and started doing it each morning and evening.  I was able to listen to my subconscious! I slowly began [to believe] that it was possible to change my life.  I had no idea how, but didn’t concern myself with that. Instead, I stayed consistent each day focused on self-healing.  By the end of the sessions, I had completely transformed my thinking.  I no longer thought it might be possible to change my life, I had already changed it.  Each day, I completed small steps toward my future goals.  I scheduled my NCLEX, passed, applied for jobs, and was offered a position at the job I wanted most!  Within months of believing it was possible to change, I started my dream job, had a new car, and moved into an incredible house with breathtaking views.

I was a little skeptical about hypnosis because I had taken a group class with about 75 people in a room to stop a behavior.  I was so distracted by noises in room and had absolutely no effect, but when I saw Grace's post for free 3 minute hypnosis I decided to try it.

I had so many issues like overeating, but the absolutely most important for me was to get help with my deep depression, anxiety and negative thoughts.

Grace Smith literally saved my life!  I have been in such a deep depression for years and couldn't seem to stop my negative thoughts from constantly swirling around in my mind.  I felt hopeless and even after being on medications and having counseling for years, I was getting worse instead of getting better. I saw a post online advertising a free three minute hypnosis download by Grace Smith and I was very intrigued.  I downloaded the 3 minute and also the 10 minute free hypnosis and my life began to change. I signed up for the Grace Space trial and began to go through starting with the 4 steps to mental health. Grace was also holding daily Periscopes and some webinars, and I learned about neuropathways and how you could actually change your brain.  "I am safe, I am calm, I choose to relax," became my mantra.  Not only has my anxiety lifted tremendously, I have been able to help others who were suffering from anxiety and invited them to try Grace Space.  I am still a work in progress, but I am not sure where I would be if it were not for discovering Grace.  Grace is a true blessing and life-saver.

I thought you would be "put under" and be under the control of the therapist....Or totally hokey and wouldn't work at all.

Anxiety and anger/mood swings [were the issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].
I do not like the the way I "behave", and it makes me feel awful for myself and those around me.

I am a stay-at-home mom in my late forties.  I had one 90 minute breakthrough session with Grace Smith to deal with some increasing anxiety.  I had no prior experience with hypnotherapy. Five years ago, I attended traditional psychotherapy for a year.  The sessions felt good while I was there, but I was seeing no lasting results.

Grace was very forthcoming and honest about what hypnotherapy would and would not do.  I wasn't to expect overnight 100% resolution to my issues. It would probably take several days to see any reduction in my symptoms.

The day after my session, I was in a situation that would instantly trigger a medium amount of anxiety.  I normally feel a sharp energy right in my heart, with a quickened heart and breath rate. I felt absolutely nothing in my heart, no quickness of breath. It was unbelievable.  It didn't even realize the extent I had been living with anxiety until it wasn't there.  I actually tried to recreate the feeling because the absence of my anxiety felt so strange.  It was a breakthrough moment that I needed help, and hypnotherapy could help me.

I also noticed I wasn't as reactive when things didn't go as planned with my husband and teenagers.  We had a minor incident that I normally would have exploded. I had a very calm reaction with no internal anxiety, and I completely moved on.  My reaction was so far from my norm, that my family thought, wow, she is really really upset, and we better steer clear. The changes I was experiencing where quick, drastic, and noticeable to everyone around.

Although I still have some anxiety, the intensity and frequency are dramatically reduced.  With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.

I didn't really have a strong preconceived notion of hypnosis. The word did, however, bring to mind an image of a somewhat spooky man with a pendulum saying "You are getting very sleepy..". So, without having given much thought to hypnosis, that image still resided in my mind.

I have experienced mild to moderate depression and anxiety at various times throughout my life. My depression seemed to be getting more persistent and deeper, and it was harder to find motivation. A few months ago, I made the decision to take steps to heal from past trauma. I realized I can no longer allow the past to hold me back.

My success story is very much a work in progress. I have been a Grace Space member for about a month. (Though I have benefited greatly from Grace's relaxation recordings for longer than that.) Ultimate Anxiety Relief has been amazingly helpful. I feel more calm, centered and confident. I'm finding it easier to keep up with beneficial habits, such as a regular yoga and meditation practice. I do still experience setbacks, but I am less likely to feel overwhelmed when this happens. I also made the decision to join Grace's Hypnotherapy Training Course. I'm so excited to learn and to see where this journey takes me!

I did not know anything about [hypnosis], but, probably [I was] skeptical.
I was actually googling guided meditations and happened upon [Grace Smith]!

Severe depression and anxiety brought on by a sudden estrangement of my son [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].

It is hard to write about it without crying and feeling all of the pain I was in.  I found Grace on a Youtube of Grace Smith TV. Several times a day for weeks and weeks I did the self-hypnosis, repeating the line "I am safe. I am calm. I choose to be here".  In reality I didn't want to be here and I had urges and thoughts of suicide. I was actually mad each morning that my eyes would open and I was still alive. I really wanted to die.  I would put on my headphones, listen to Grace's soothing voice and repeat her words.  It calmed me down and grounded me. Grace helped me through the pain and my suicidal thoughts.  She really saved my life.  She gave me something I could do to help myself and it really worked!!! It's been 2 years and I CHOOSE TO BE HERE!  Thanks Grace!!!

“My increased confidence and feeling comfortable in my skin for the first time in as long as I could remember.”

I was unbiased. I had no real opinion. As a yoga teacher I had been using meditation for a few years so I knew there was something to [hypnosis], I just hadn't experienced it for myself.

I have had a few sessions for different challenges. Including: weight loss, self-acceptance, and abundance. They all actually stem from the same root: not feeling good enough, and that is something I definitely want to change.

I had a short session with Grace Smith once for building self-esteem, self-acceptance and self- love. The session itself was very relaxing and calming but I didn't feel any overwhelming change right away. It wasn't until about a week later when I shocked my husband by walking around completely naked in our bedroom, in daylight! It didn't even occur to me that I was doing it until he pointed out that I NEVER do that. I am usually quite timid about showing my body. I am typically always covered up. As soon as he pointed it out, I knew that this was the direct result of my hypnosis session with Grace Smith! Of course we didn't work specifically on being comfortable naked, but the work on loving myself in all my imperfect perfection resulted in My increased confidence and feeling comfortable in my skin for the first time in as long as I could remember. I had no fear or anxiety about being naked. It was amazingly liberating! And while I do not walk around outside naked, I know that being comfortable and confident to do so at home has given me so much confidence and self-acceptance outside my home and in the world! I still listen to that session once in a while to keep building my confidence.

I didn't "buy it".. or I thought even if [hypnosis] works for some people, I wouldn't be one of those people. I was extremely skeptical.

Major anxiety issues, which were causing me to have frequent insomnia [were issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].

The first session was spontaneous - a quick "tryout" on my sister's bed.. no real issues were tackled as I wasn't prepared to vocalize my problem, so this was just a general "unfocused" hypnosis - I was completely shocked at the way I felt throughout the session.. so completely present, but also like I was under a heavy spell. It was very strange, but I felt great the rest of the entire day - it almost came in waves, a feeling of complete contentment and spikes of giddiness. I really wanted to try again, but this time with a specific goal in mind. So I scheduled an appointment with Grace at her NYC office and let her know that I would like to tackle my anxiety and sleeplessness. The session was short, I was able to use a lunch break and go right back to work. And I slept SO well after. It felt like a physical & separate being had been living inside me, taking up space and disrupting my whole system. And Grace Smith was able to transform that energy so it was just me in there - I felt afterwards like my body was mine again.

“It was the first time that I realized that first grade year could have been the kickstart to my nail biting/picking problem. I saw myself in hypnosis doing the exact thing I have had a habit of doing. It was eye-opening.”

Jen Ingalls

I knew nothing about hypnosis before starting, and only knew of "stage hypnosis," and wasn't sure how it was going to work in a therapy setting. I was open to trying and had no preconceived notions beforehand. I was actually hoping it was more like "magic" and a quick-fix. My friend's mom went to two hypnotherapy sessions and quit smoking cold-turkey. I was hoping the same would happen with nail biting.

My initial problem I wanted to deal with was nail biting/picking. My nails and cuticles were becoming so painful and destroyed from picking them. It was soon discovered that it wasn't really only the aesthetic reason of how my nails looked, but getting more to the root of the problem for why I was doing it - and that was stress and anxiety (mostly from my job).

Back in winter of 2012, after having been living in Manhattan for 9 months, I saw a LivingSocial deal for a Hypnotherapist session. I had never done hypnotherapy before and truly knew nothing about it.. except that my friend's mother quit smoking after only a session or two. I had something that had been on my mind for years, but more recently and within the entire year of 2012 had gotten pretty bad - I wanted to break my disgusting habit of nail and cuticle biting/picking.

I have bit my nails for as long as I can remember, and when I was 16, my mom said, "I bit my nails until I was 16. You'll stop this year." I didn't. At 21 years old as a Junior in college I said to myself "enough is enough.. my cuticles are dry and gross and my thumbs are sore and I sometimes pick at the skin until it bleeds, and this is not attractive and it's nasty and painful and I'm done."  I didn't stop. So by 24 years old in 2012, after I had been working in my first post-college job for over a year and my job itself was extremely stressful already, I felt like I needed to try something new and instead of spending money on another Livingsocial restaurant deal, invest in something for myself and my own well-being.

I saw Grace's picture and read a little bit about Awaken NYC and decided to buy the e-deal and commit to a 6PM session on a random weeknight to see if one session with a pretty stranger could wipe away a quarter of a century worth of short stubby fingernails and straggly cuticles.

I remember being SO nervous my first session.. asked to used the bathroom beforehand because I was scared I'd have to pee while in hypnosis and I'd pee myself or something crazy. I remember Grace explaining the difference of stage hypnosis versus what she does, and that I won't wake up and have experienced a true blackout where I don't remember anything (and secretly she had made me dance around like a chicken or something) but instead, we are targeting the subconscious mind and I'd be experiencing a slight dream-state, etc. After my first session, I felt really comfortable with Grace Smith more than anything. I saw her as like an older-sister type.. and she also had an eerie resemblance to my goofy friend and roommate at the time, so I felt ever more connected to her. 🙂

I had about 8 sessions with Grace in Awaken NYC over the course of the next few months, and about my 4th session in, we had a really awesome breakthrough. Grace had me under in hypnosis and she prompted me to regress backwards in time. She had me try to recall my earliest memory, and then from there to a memory when I was a little girl... not a baby. And what flowed to me next was incredible. For the first time in about 15-20 years, I really accounted my experience as a 6-year old first grader in elementary school. Under hypnosis, I could remember my outfits, my classroom, my teacher, my classmates, etc. As Grace asked questions and we talked about that early memory, I described the overall experience of that year. **(Side note: as an adult, when I was about 20, sometimes I talked to my mom and dad about that first year. My recollection is that I had this great group of girlfriends, and it was fun, but my teacher was mean. That's really it. My mom, on the other hand, thinks I was "kind of depressed that year." She says, "You would come home from school, and just sit on the couch and watch TV. And your only friend on our street was this weird boy across the street that you would sometimes go outside and play with. and I would ask you, 'Jenny, how's school?' and you'd said, 'it's fine.'  but you really lost the life in you and you didn't smile much. And you would say how mean Mrs. Cottone was." THIS BLEW MY MIND! I didn't know I was "depressed" or "not my bubbly, usual self"... how sad at 6 years old to be perceived as "down" and depressed by your parents!)

SO... I knew of this but we hadn't talked about it in years and I never really tried to go back and remember that first-grade year. But under hypnosis that session, I was talking about that year - the classroom, the teacher, getting in trouble for talking in class too much, etc. And when I was describing one incident where I remember getting called out in the middle of class and yelled at by my teacher because she thought I was talking to this girl Kate (when really Kate leaned over and asked me a question about a book I had on my desk, and I was just answering her). Grace said, "Good Jen.. this is great detail. Now tell me.. what do you see? What are you physically doing at this time? Where are your hands?" and I saw myself, embarrassed and cowered, getting yelled at by my mean Russian teacher, with my hands under my desk, rapidly picking my fingernails, out of nervousness, stress and anxiety. It was the first time that I realized that first grade year could have been the kickstart to my nail biting/picking problem. I saw myself in hypnosis doing the exact thing I have had a habit of doing. It was eye-opening. And from there, Grace and I would try to get to the root of when I pick my nails, in what environment, under what circumstances, what times of day, etc. so that I could try and 1) be more aware of it and 2) use some techniques to try and stop.


Over the course of the next year of so, we spoke pretty frequently, and my relationship with Grace expanded from just my nail-biting issue, to all of the other things she is so knowledgeable about. We spoke about life, and meditation and Past Life regressions, and the meaning of life. She ended up moving her office out of Manhattan, and I ended up leaving Manhattan December of 2013, but I continued to try and use daily mediation to stay calm and less anxious. I gained the courage to quit my stressful miserable job, leave the city that was overcrowded, expensive and making me anxious, and moved home to South Jersey in January 2014. I changed my city and my job to better help me get mentally and spiritually healthier.

Fast-forward 2.5 years... am I still biting my nails? No. (Because I keep them constantly manicured with gel). Am I still picking the gel off of my nails when my manicure starts to chip every 2 weeks? Yes. Once the gel is picked off, do I pick at my cuticles? Sometimes. Is it exacerbated by boredom or stress? Yes. Do I tend to do it more after a few cocktails? Also yes. But are there weeks at a time where my nails are healthy and growing and manicured and I don't touch them at all? YES. My point is that 8-10 hypnotherapy sessions over 3 years ago did not "cure me" or my 20+ year old long habit. If I had stuck with it, and really committed would it have? Maybe. But hypnotherapy isn't magic. It takes time, and patience and practice.. and takes a lot of self-talk and self-identification of the root of the problem. I wasn't "cured" from occasionally making my nails nasty and short and painful... but I did find clarity in what was triggering that for me. I recognized that my job and living in NYC was not good for me anymore... it was too stressful and my job was making me miserable and anxious and I needed to make a change. That change came after moving home in 2014, and then moving again into Philadelphia with my boyfriend in 2015… and working in a new job... and I have been the happiest and calmest and most alive I've been in years.

I had no idea what [hypnosis] was. I mean I knew sort of, but I didn't think it was a real thing that worked. I thought of someone actually being hypnotized like when someone dangles something in front of their face and says "you are getting very sleeeepy..."

My anxiety and trauma [were issues I wanted to fix], because it is sometimes debilitating.

[I thought hypnosis] was mind control.

Emotional ups and downs, needing to feel more confident in myself, being happy again. I wanted to fix these because it did not feel like I was living my life. I felt like I was just on autopilot.

My name is Lea and I was searching for a way that was quicker at changing my emotions and making me feel better. I was using positive affirmations and working to keep my thoughts positive. I had heard of hypnosis before and had the same belief that most of the world has, that [hypnosis] is mind control. Really I was just uninformed about what hypnosis really is which as Grace Smith says which I agree, “Hypnosis is meditation with a goal”. I liken it to deep relaxation with the ability to change areas of your life that are not for your highest and best good. There is no magic or mind control going on. I kept an open mind and I listened to some of Grace Smith’s videos and periscopes and felt a difference immediately. I was not quite sure why this was but when Grace Smith posted on Facebook she was having a school for hypnotherapy, I knew I had to enroll. I have only been doing hypnosis for a short time but, I absolutely love the way I feel every day! When I have anxiety and worry about doing well in this class, the quiz taking, getting my assignments done on time and keeping up with everything else in my life, family, work, etc. I listen to a hypnosis recording and within minutes I am calmer and more relaxed. My brain is not going 100 MPH with everything I need to get done. I feel more able to prioritize my tasks to be the most effective. I have noticed that I am generally calmer and relaxed throughout the day with as I am doing hypnosis daily. I love [hypnosis] and wish I would have known about it sooner.

[My thoughts on hypnosis were] hopeful. I believe that a lot of our issues and problems originate from the subconscious beliefs and attitudes handed down to us by our parents in our early years of life and that this programming affects our perceptions and how we interpret, react and deal with the experiences we call into our lives and indeed, what we call into our lives is the direct result of that early programming which is much stronger than simply saying, I don't believe that or this isn't my truth. Our lives have been built on these foundations whether we think we believe it or not...  I do believe though, that it is possible to reprogram our subconscious thoughts, but I didn't know how to go about it, how long it would take to ensure success and especially, what program would affect positive change. I mean, I'm sure my parents were doing and saying what they thought was best for my well-being and yet it is very obvious to me how their beliefs have impacted on my self worth and success. So whilst I was hopeful, I was also very conscious that what I replace the old programming with had to be right.

Anxiety [was the first issue I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I believe that our health issues are the direct result of our emotional experiences. I first developed asthma and the breathlessness triggers of anxiety which in turn escalates the asthma and [causes] more anxiety. Life was becoming difficult and unenjoyable and an incident with my daughter escalated these effects to panic responses. In order to begin healing, I needed to get control over the anxiety. [Secondly, I wanted to address] abundance. Asthma is related to self-worth and grief and the incident with my daughter stripped me of all worth. I raised my children on my own and having felt so little self-esteem as a young adult myself, I had done so much work on self-improvement, had studied early childhood and was always so conscious of what I said to my kids, how I responded to them, what I was teaching them - my kids are everything to me and I lived for them. I'm not talking "helicopter parenting" - I am talking about teaching them assertive behaviour and considering the effects of their life choices, teaching them about compassion and kindness and communication and love. We didn't have a lot when they were growing up and I usually put my needs last in order for them to have what other kids had. I really thought I was a great mother - this was the one thing that I got absolutely right. So when my adult daughters, both now with children of their own, suddenly turned on me; I was devastated. 3 days earlier I was the best mother in the world. My eldest said things that had never happened and she blocked me out of her life for 9 months. My youngest blocked me for 3 weeks and then came back because she needed money. When my eldest did agree to talk with me, she again said things that hadn't happened and if I tried to say otherwise she would scream and threaten to cut me out again. During this time, my heart broke and I felt absolute despair (much worse than grief) but both emotions affect the lungs. Everything that I had worked on becoming as a person, everything that I believed about myself, all my self-worth and self-esteem was stripped away and I could feel my life slipping away. I was dying, being smothered, breathing was something I had to force myself to do and the asthma and growing anxiety were making it harder. I still don't understand what happened but I can see a few of my failures - in putting myself last all the time, I taught them that I don't matter as much as they do; in helping them (because I never wanted their lives to be as hard as mine had been), they saw it as buying their love because I had made their childhoods hard; by not telling them why I had left their father, he had room to tell them lies; because I was so busy I had to choose my battles so it wouldn't be at their expense, they saw it as me bowing out because I must have been wrong; and now if I try to share how hard it was to raise kids alone, they say "plenty of other people do it" and they don't get that the other people they are talking about have financial help from their "ex" where I didn't - but that's just another lie their father tells them. When you have spent a lifetime of deliberately choosing not to engage in mudslinging, how do you come back from that. Their father is a bully, they had begun spending a lot of time with him and overnight my children became bullies. I found it hard to deal with. I can't take anxiety drugs and don't want to. Often the symptoms would escalate in places where it wasn't convenient or possible to stop and meditate and the 20+ years of self-development had crumbled after the incident with my daughter. So hypnosis seemed like my last hope to hang on to life, a miracle that could enable me to begin healing and it offered the possibility of a lifelong solution. I had been looking around locally but the programs offered where quit smoking and weight loss. None of them felt right. I kept asking the universe for peace and God's grace - "by the grace of God go I"...  There came a day when I felt like "this isn't living, it isn't fun" and that day I cried and prayed. I said I didn't want to live like this, take me or send me the help that I need. The next day, God sent me grace - literally! I opened facebook and right at the top of my feed was Grace Smith-Feitosa offering a FREE ANXIETY hypnosis challenge! I had never seen Grace's previous works, or come across anything about hypnosis on facebook and yet here she was, with a free challenge perfectly designed for the immediate help I needed to enable me with enough healing to begin working on healing all of me. This could not be a coincidence! With hope, I clicked on her first video and Grace sprang to life - with all her inner beauty and sincerity and contagious enthusiasm. I felt inspired and overwhelmed. I had prayed for God's "Grace" and here she was! In that moment I felt so grateful and loved and that was the beginning of my journey and my introduction to hypnosis.

One of the biggest causes of my health problems has been that I see the world through 'rose coloured glasses' because I get so hurt by the things that people do and say and no matter how many times I get hurt, no matter how many lessons I have learned, I am never prepared for the next one. I feel things so deeply. I give my all. I believe and have passion. Although I know how strong I am because of the challenges I have had to overcome throughout my life, sometimes I feel so tired and feel that I really am "too soft" for this world. I can literally feel the hurt that others feel or how something affects someone. My body is also very affected by my emotional state and it aligns with what I am feeling. That means that western medicine doesn't always work well for me because I need to heal the cause of my emotional state before the symptoms will disappear. This is why hypnosis works so well. It isn't a quick fix and I know that I have work still to do but by healing the thoughts that created the symptoms, I know it is possible. My first challenge was anxiety. Anxiety and asthma go hand in hand. The worse the asthma is, the worse the anxiety is, the harder it is to breathe at all. As you can imagine, it was a vicious circle. I am still not completely healed from anxiety because I still have asthma but the challenge stopped me from panicking when it occurred and that was enough to allow me to begin to heal some of the many misaligned thoughts that eventually resulted in asthma. Some of these are low self-worth, feeling less than, feeling like you can't be yourself, you must be perfect in order to be loved, feeling you lack something, feeling deprived, feeling smothered and stifled... Some of these thoughts are addressed in the abundance challenge and yes, I am manifesting money from known and unknown sources, but my ultimate goal is to manifest good health so that I can live an enjoyable life. Other thoughts that impact health will be addressed in various other challenges. I have been reluctant to admit that I also developed nodules on my lungs and esophagus and the lung specialist is waiting to see if it will become lung cancer. Lungs are related to grief and of course, nodules and cancer are basically from unexpressed feelings, regret, unworthiness, bubbling up or eating away at you or both. I am in my early 50's and I refuse to let this become my story. I know that my body is capable of healing itself. For me, that means healing the thoughts that created these symptoms. I have spent years in self-development, trying to become my best version, I have studied and grown from the teachings of Deepak Chopra, Louise Hays, Wayne Dyer, Maryanne Williamson, Ekhart Tollie, Abraham, Doreen Virtue, Bruce Lipton, Dr Emoti, Stephen Hawkins and the celebrity list goes on and on... Honestly, I would go so far as to say that I probably have one of the largest book libraries of self help, spiritual leaders, quantum science, healers and innovators covering every topic known to man that many of you have ever seen! And they are all fantastic and complement each other and make perfect sense but for me, all of my years of study was still stripped away in an instant, by the only 2 people on earth that could ever do that - my children! The child of my body, my kiss from God.... I have done the groundwork. This time I need permanent healing. The only way I can see to do that is to reprogram my programming, to overwrite that early "software" with new, sustainable scripts. I know that hypnosis is the way to do that because from that first challenge, even when I have been in circumstances that have made me anxious, I have never again wished for death to take me. I am healing. I am on a healing journey and by the "Grace Smith-Feitosa" of God, go I.... Thank you Grace, my saving Grace. I love you, I'm taking baby steps but I am moving. I will always be eternally grateful to God and the universe for sending Grace to me and as I heal, I am excited to know that my true purpose is unfolding.

I didn’t have too many thoughts [on hypnosis]. I went through 100 and 200 levels of psychology for nursing school. They didn’t touch too much on hypnotherapy. We didn’t know how life-transforming it could be for our patients. I discovered hypnotherapy for hypnobirthing. I thought hypnosis was some circus way to control people “magically”

Anxiety, fear, self esteem, being content/living in the now, physical pain, abundance blocks, self-sabatoging behaviors. I wanted to fix [these issues with hypnosis] because I, just like everybody else, deserves an abundant life free of paralyzing ego problems. Ever since having my son I am more driven than ever to grow.

I wanted to help with my anxiety so I listened to hypnobirthing while in was pregnant. That’s where it began.  I began participating in Grace’s group challenges. Then I realized it can help with EVERYTHING since the subconscious controls everything. I have helped cope with anxiety, depression, pain, chronic Lyme disease and co infections, and manage to bring in more abundance into my life. I am enrolled in Grace’s hypnotherapy program. I have been able to manifest many things into my life with the help of Grace and hypnosis to reprogram my mind.

I was very curious about [hypnosis] and had heard lots of success stories from friends who had used it to quit smoking. A very dear friend of mine, Dan, was having regular hypnosis sessions to help him with anxiety and productivity and he has always been someone whose life I admire. He told me wonderful things about his experiences with hypnotherapy so I was eager to try it as well.

I was gifted my session by my mother who thought it might help me quit smoking. I however didn't feel ready to quit at the time, so I decided to use the session to help me with my anxiety and procrastination. I wanted to be doing more to help myself be a more disciplined and successful musician.

I only had one session in person with Grace and it remains (sadly) the only live hypnosis session I've yet had, but it was such an eye-opening experience that I truly consider it the beginning of a shift in my life; I am only now beginning to realize the magnitude of. Meeting Grace, being in the same room with her - I felt as if I was in the presence of an angel. There was something so magnificently warm and genuine about [Grace’s] energy that made me feel so safe and full of possibility. I knew that she, like my friend Dan who inspired me to try hypnotherapy, was someone who I wanted to be more like. Being in trance was such a delicious feeling it, I remember feeling pleasantly stoned the entire day afterwards. I initially experienced a delightful boost in my discipline with working on my music and writing. Unfortunately life got hectic and I never made it back in for follow-up sessions. However I stayed in touch with Grace Smith through her Grace Notes emails and my interest in hypnosis has only grown over time. When I received an email about potentially enrolling in her certification program, I felt it as a calling. The moment I decided to do it, it was as if a giant weight I hadn't realized I had been carrying was lifted off my shoulders and I saw so clearly this path to the future I wanted for myself and the means to help people and society as a whole in a way I've felt desperate to do. Since beginning my studies and practicing hypnosis on my own on a nearly daily basis, I have successfully quit smoking, played the best shows of my career as a singer, transformed my yoga practice (and my body!), and am in the healthiest relationship of my life. I cannot wait to see where this discipline takes me as I look back and see how much my life has already changed since hypnosis became a part of it.

Even having studied psychology, and now being a spiritual person, I was hesitant to use hypnosis because of the lack of control I felt I would have.

I wanted to resolve anxiety that I had my entire life and be able to calm myself down effectively in the moment.

Right after I completed this challenge, I got my driver's license (for the first time) and it helped IMMENSELY to calm my nerves practicing behind-the-wheel with others in the car and now driving around anywhere. Now, when I go out in social situations and events (especially where I do not know anyone), before travel (even traveling alone) and occasional anxiety during the day, I now have the tools to talk to and be compassionate enough with myself to breathe deeply to calm myself down (and sometimes automatically hear Grace's sweet voice in my head).

I used to think hypnosis was scary, that it was like giving up your subconscious mind to another person, as the Hollywood movies portray. I was always under the impression that I would be fully unconscious during the session, but it's nothing like that!

I had awful, almost debilitating social anxiety for around 2 years, and a milder form of it for years before that. I wasn't able to make new friends, I could barely ever go to a store for fear of interaction with sales people. It was very difficult for me to communicate with other adults at work. It had recently become hard to even talk to my family! I wanted to feel comfortable having a casual conversation with people and be able to chase my dreams without anxiety!

Before I started using Grace Space hypnosis, I felt trapped by social anxiety. I hadn't made friends for a few years, and being pretty fresh out of high school, I didn't really have any of my old friends around. It got worse as time went on; I couldn't go to stores or make doctor's appointments because I was so anxiety-ridden about the interaction. It got to the point where speaking with my family was difficult and I was avoiding them as much as I could. I knew I had to do SOMETHING when I was avoiding my dad and it was impacting our relationship. I signed up for Grace Smith's anxiety challenge, and before it began Grace offered an anxiety bundle of 3 anxiety recordings for $20. I bought it and began listening to all of them, but I really focused on the social anxiety recording. After listening to it nightly for about a week, I began noticing that I could talk to people. It was the most AMAZING feeling. I had no idea how much I was missing out! My life has improved tenfold. I got the job I wanted and desperately needed, and was even able to ask for more money for more work during the interview! I am now following my dreams and making friends every single day. I'm so happy with the results that I joined Grace Space and began  Grace Smith’s hynotherapy school! I want to spread this gift and give every person I meet the ability to live their best lives! Thank you Grace Smith!

I didn't have any strong feelings about [hypnosis]. The only prior association I had with it was past life regression. I suppose my assumption was that this was the primary purpose of hypnosis. I also was somewhat aware of stage hypnosis, but it was mostly an afterthought.

Feeling anxious about my finances [was an issue I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. It was difficult for me to stay organized regarding my finances and sometimes I would dread looking at my accounts so intensely that I would avoid it and then sometimes bills wouldn't be paid on time or I'd over spend. It just seemed like no matter what I would try or no matter how many alarms I would set on my phone or in my calendar, I could not ever seem to feel calm and confident about dealing with or tracking my finances.

I began listening to the Ultimate Anxiety Relief program in Grace Space as well as the Financial Abundance Binary recording in the Grace Space app.

I knew I wanted to release anxiety, and I also knew that most of my anxiety was related to my finances.

Things began shifting very shortly after a few days of listening to those recordings. In fact, the next day after I began listening, I felt inspired to login to all my accounts, set up automatic payments, put together a spreadsheet of all my expenses, canceled ongoing memberships that I wasn't using, and getting things in order. After a few more days of listening to the recordings, I started getting ideas for a new direction in my career. One of the big ideas was to start a local sacred women's circle, something I'd normally feel terrified to do. While I am still in the stages of putting these ideas together. I've already begun reaching out to acquaintances and have been enjoying the process so much. Not only are these recordings helping me heal my financial anxiety, they're helping me feel safe and trusting of myself in my ideas for new streams of income as well as moving forward in my desired career.

I was almost afraid of [hypnosis]. I thought it was either a fake magic trick or a way for mind control.

I had panic attacks and severe anxiety, constantly fearing that something bad might happen. I wanted  to fix myself and be calm so I can enjoy life.

Grace's voice has the ability to calm me down like nothing else. I love listening to her and I could do it all day. Even from when she says "take a nice, deep, letting go breath" I instantly feel better. Her hypnosis have helped me more than anything else and I wouldn't be as well and confident as I am now without her videos and recordings. I constantly felt unsafe before but I haven't had another panic attack since I started hypnosis.

I didn't really know what [hypnosis] was.

Anxiety related to health problems, it did help, it lead me to other forms of meditation. I also sought out a hypnotherapist  in my area which did not help.

I have extreme anxiety that causes constipation and I did use [Grace Smith’s]  recordings for a while that helped, I also mediate now every morning, but there was a time where I was excited to wake up and listen to [Grace Smith’s] scopes on replay.

“Now I can't wait for my next plane ride and travel destination.”

I thought [hypnosis] was a scary concept because I've only seen hypnotists who hypnotize students to do silly acts at a school assembly in the auditorium. I thought they didn't have control over themselves because they said they couldn't remember any of the silly acts the hypnotist had them perform. So it scared me because I have panic and anxiety disorder and one of my irrational fears is to lose control over my own mind and body. So I stayed away from [hypnosis].

I have panic and anxiety disorder where I can have panic attacks at any given time and anxiety has consumed me to where I couldn't drive my own car, I couldn't go out at night, I avoided new situations because I would get anxious and I'd back out. As well as overcoming flying anxiety because I had never been on a plane before.

When I first found out I was going to Florida for Memorial day weekend and the airline tickets were bought, I freaked out full anxiety mode. I am 22 years old and I have panic and anxiety disorder and have had it since I was a baby. So then reason being anxious was because I had never been on a plane before. I was SO scared that I spent the month leading up to the trip researching everything I could about airplanes, travel anxiety, fear of flying, etc etc etc. I walked around work like a zombie because my mind was so engrossed with anxious thoughts of travel and flight. The day finally came and I was nervous like anyone would be, but when it was time to board the plane, I broke down in the ugliest bawling fit I had in many many years. I kept saying over and over again, "I can't! I just want to go home! I've never wanted to go home so badly in my life! I can't do this, I can't!" I heard children ask their mothers why that girl was crying and they said, "Oh, she's just worried about her seat, that's all. There's nothing to be afraid of." Knowing full well that it was just another irrational nervous traveller. But as soon as I was on the plane and we were taking off, I was relaxed, looking out the window and laughing in no time. I was amazed at how easy flying actually was and couldn't believe that 6.5% of the population suffered from Aviophobia, or fear of flying. That may not sound like a lot, but that's actually 20 million people worldwide! I've talked to many of my friends and family and they too said that they weren't keen on flying either. But I beat that statistic! I beat it and now I enjoy flying! It was because once I was on the plane, my boyfriend (whom was travelling with me and who had to practically drag me mid-panic attack to my seat) reminded me over and over to sit and "listen to those recordings you do." He was referring to the Grace Smith recordings for anxiety. So I sat back, closed that window shutter, held his hand and closed my eyes and got free and I enjoyed my mental freedom and after my 10 minute hypnosis sessions, which I did a couple times over to go even deeper into relaxation, I was having a wonderful time, realizing that being on a plane was super easy and smooth riding and kind of reminded me like being on a big bus. I was soon looking out the window taking pictures and loving my trip. Now I can't wait for my next plane ride and travel destination.

“Hypnosis did for me what therapy, medication, exercise, and a whole plethora of "natural" remedies couldn't. It gave me peace for the first time. I feel free.”

I didn't have many thoughts about [hypnosis]. It did seem like something strange and woo woo. Nothing that I thought would help me.

My anxiety. I can remember being 4 or 5 and going to the movies with my grandmother weekly, and I can remember being so worried that we were in the wrong theater and worrying about what was going to happen if the wrong movie began to play. I can remember times when I was too paralyzed to answer a knock at the door, times I would have to turn the ringer off on my phone because hearing it would cause a panic attack, and times even hearing the mail drop into the mailbox would make me so anxious I would need to lay down.

A little over a year ago I discovered Grace Smith through Bex from Bexlife. I've watched most of her videos and periscopes. It has been life changing. I joined Grace Space as soon as it opened and haven't looked back. I can honestly say the last 6 months have been the best of my life. I listen to hypnosis daily, and almost every night I listen to the one hour full-length anxiety relief session. What have I gotten out of it? I sleep through the night for the first time in my life. I no longer wake in the middle of the night in a panic attack. I can answer the phone, the door, and am happy to get my mail. I haven't had a panic attack in as long as I can remember. Work no longer makes my stomach hurt, nor does having hard conversations with people. Hypnosis did for me what therapy, medication, exercise, and a whole plethora of "natural" remedies couldn't. It gave me peace for the first time. I feel free.

“Now 6 months later she has some full eyelashes back and more are growing but most importantly her habit doesn't affect how she feels about herself!”

Lisa Simchison

I didn't know what to believe. I had a strong meditation practice so I knew the mind was powerful. I was open to the [hypnosis] experience.

Although I have worked with Grace Smith, the success story I want to share is of my 11 year old daughter Emma. She has anxiety and pulls her eyelashes. We wanted to fix it because it was causing her more anxiety and low confidence.

In 2015, my 11 year old daughter Emma's eyelash pulling was at its worst. She had no eyelashes left and she was getting small sores on her eyelids from picking at the tiny eyelashes that were trying to grow in. The eyelash pulling had become an even bigger problem than the esthetic one - she was now feeling worse and worse every time she pulled an eyelash. She continuously told us how she 'couldn't stop' and that she was 'dumb' and 'not normal.' I asked Grace [Smith] if she could work with Emma on her self-esteem around pulling her eyelashes and maybe even that habit itself. When Grace Smith called me, she spoke to me and asked me a few questions including my goal for the session. My goal was simply to free Emma from the burden of how picking her eyelashes made her feel. I wasn't concerned with the habit itself but more with how badly it made her feel. Then Grace [Smith] spoke to Emma and asked her a few questions including what Emma would consider a successful treatment. Emma responded by saying that if she went from pulling 5-10 eyelashes per day to pulling that many per week she would consider that a success. Grace [Smith] and Emma had their hypnosis session and Emma was instructed to listen to the recording as often as possible. Within 24 hours Emma started noticing that she wasn't picking as many eyelashes! I also noticed that when she did pick one she didn't seem to feel so bad - and she just picked one! She usually would pick one, feel bad and pick more and more. But she would pick just one! She continued to listen to the recording and see impressive results! Now 6 months later she has some full eyelashes back and more are growing but most importantly her habit doesn't affect how she feels about herself! She is happy and carefree again and not focused on how many eyelashes she has or doesn't have! It is truly amazing! I can't possibly thank Grace enough for giving Emma her carefree childhood freedom back!

I didn't really see [hypnosis] as effective.

I have been looking for additional tools to cope with my general stress and anxiety, and to help me deal with a toxic relationship in my life. I am also looking to improve my health and I have a weight loss goal.

After listening to Grace's endlessly fascinating interview on Katie Dalebout's podcast, I listened to the three-minute stress relief hypnosis later that day and was awed by how calm I felt. Before picking up my younger children that day, I parked my car and listened to the 10 minute relaxation recording. I felt amazingly calm, and handled my chaotic afternoon with four kids much more peacefully than usual. Later that evening, my husband tried to dredge up an old argument, and instead of taking the bait, I found myself shifting gears and responding with complete calm and ease. It wasn't until the next day, when I listened to the 10 minute relaxation recording again, that I realized there was a part about "angry words being cleaned away". It had worked perfectly for me! On a similar note, before listening to the recording for a second time, I wrote in my journal, mentioning that the only word that I could use to describe my feeling was "clean". Again, I didn't realize until later that the word "clean" was actually part of the hypnosis. I became a member later that day and embarked on the Weight Loss Intensive. I also continue to listen to the relaxation recordings every day. I am calmer, happier, and more centered than I can ever remember feeling before. I feel incredibly light, positive, and at peace. I feel so happy knowing I have these recordings to turn to every day, when I feel a dip in mood, or energy, or a food craving. I am only on Day 7 of the Weight Loss Intensive, but I have stuck to my nutrition and exercise program with very little effort - it just feels right, and I have been struggling with these issues for a few years. My experience with hypnosis has been brief, but amazing, and I will definitely be a lifelong member of the site.

I didn't really have thoughts on hypnosis one way or another, to be honest. It had never really landed on my radar. But once I discovered you through Danny (I think!) and you explained hypnosis to us as just "Meditation with a Goal," I became super interested to try it out!

Feeling confident in myself and my creativity again after getting sober, conquering addiction (including sugar cravings!) and learning to love myself again. Also eliminating chronic extreme anxiety and attracting abundance! I wanted to fix these things because I've been through so much in my life and was ready to start fresh, to start new. The time is now!

(First of all, I have an entire life story that should be a Hallmark Movie. It includes being born in the Midwest as a virtuosic singer/songwriter and live performer, losing my father at a young age yet his body still being here on earth due to a traumatic brain injury (then having a spiritual connection with him now), witnessing addiction in all its forms break apart my family, getting a Vocal Scholarship to the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, then discovering that addiction had also grasped onto me in all its forms (co-dependent relationships, #MeToo, drugs, alcohol, pills, sugar, food, etc.) in my early 20s living in Hollywood and going down that dark path for 3+ years... then the heartwarming story of overcoming addiction at 25 years old and getting sober, writing a hit song out of it, and becoming a Healer, Transformation Coach, and studying Hypnotherapist. Finally able to live out my Life Purpose - to be a Light for others so that they too may See.

At this point now - January 2018 - I have used Hypnosis to attract over $10,000 of EXTRA money into my life (major ABUNDANCE) and have also relieved chronic EXTREME ANXIETY, along with everything else listed above. Using the amazing healing capacity of Hypnotherapy, I finally feel confident in myself and my creativity again. After getting sober, I have conquered addiction (including sugar cravings!) and have learned to love myself again.
From her second survey:

At first, I only signed up to receive your Grace Notes, introduced through Danny J after doing her "Find the Money" Program since I was drowning in student loan and credit card debt. I was intrigued by these Grace Notes and instantly felt close to you, as I read/write/think/teach the same thing. From there I researched your website and felt a God-nudge to learn and teach hypnosis as well, from you specifically. The year was 2016 and I noticed your Hypnotherapy School offering had just launched. I really thought about signing up right then and there (mind you, without EVER even listening to one of your hypnosis recordings - just basing it off my impression of you and feeling of good, positive, loving energy!) but at the time my financial situation didn't allow me to be able to move forward. However, from that moment I kept following your journey as a leader (even more intensely this time), joined your Weight Loss Challenge GraceSpace Facebook Group, and had my first hypnosis success! I then purchased a few of your recordings and began to listen to them daily.

I experienced immediate results with the No More Sugar Hypnosis and became an even bigger believer. Feeling the addictive 'need' to eat sweets and junk food to numb myself had been taken away from me! It was a miracle.

When I love something I spread it far and wide fast, so from there I started telling all my friends about you, your wonderful Divine Purpose, the fact that you are also a Lightworker and leader in this new age, and knew 1000% that I must study with you. My intuition is almost ALWAYS correct, and after getting sober 2 years ago I have learned to follow my heart more and more.

Then, in the FB Weight Loss Group, when you shared in one of your live videos that you were sober as well and overcame your addiction, I broke down and cried. Tears of joy. Right in that moment, I knew again that God had led me to you for a VERY important reason - and that deeper connection we share of going through the 12 Steps together - connects us in the matrix even more. This was all divinely orchestrated, so it must be done. It was God's will to work with you, so now the excitement kicked in even more, know that I was finally following MY purpose!

Hypnotherapy is such a beautiful healing modality and a way for us to give back to the world. I know that my passion - just like yours has - will lead many new people to heal and recover from their struggles and challenges. Hallelujah and Amen! I can't wait to continue healing myself through Hypnotherapy alongside your lovely expertise to add this modality as well to my practice as a Healer and Lightworker.

More of my Hypnotherapy success since then can be contributed to doing the Anxiety recordings in Grace Space and truly feeling better than I've felt in a long time. Now I can BREATHE through things and feel a deep sense of peace within, instead of fear. And since doing your latest Abundance Challenge, I have attracted over $10,000 of EXTRA MONEY into my life! That includes things coming out of nowhere... getting a check for $8,000 from an old car accident settlement finally coming through, signing a $3500 songwriting deal with a minimum of $10,000 in royalties coming in once it is released, signing on a new healing client who reached out to me on Day 3 of the Abundance Challenge and purchasing my $1500 CyberScan package, among many other examples. I have a full list if you'd like to take a look 🙂

I just didn't think [hypnosis] worked, or would work on me. I didn't understand how close it was to meditation, and I hated meditation... So we were off to a bad start ! But positive thinking was appealing to me, so I decided to try it out.

I just needed to get my anxiety levels to drop down. My depression was getting worse again, and I wanted to find balance, because I could feel myself starting to become aggressive to my loved ones from the pain, and that was out of the question. I was also freaking out because I had no clue what I would be doing the next year... Or even what I wanted ! There is nothing more frightening than not even knowing your own mind. I help onto anything I could to find my path, which also, incidentally, made me hold onto the right things, and get the right result.

I am very bad at discipline, and I was amazed when I effortlessly didn't miss a single session on Periscope. The more I practised, the more I felt like my vision was clearing up. When I realised Grace Smith had taught me back something essential that I had forgotten : how to calm down! I felt so relieved, it was like a revelation. The calm, grounded energy I was looking for was mine at last. It gave me the possibility to look out for what I wanted, fearlessly, and as I was in the middle of an important decision-making time (aka. what do I do once I finish my bachelor's degree), I was in desperate need of this kind of support. I wanted to keep depression at bay to make sure my decision was mine and had nothing to do with my illness.


Now I'm off to a master's degree with a wonderful subject and teacher to guide me, I've created my own rescue group with a friend, I keep steadily trying to get my driving licence -everything I'm awfully bad at merged into a single activity- and I'm going to look for a summer job for the first time ever.
I'm not scared, I'm not sad, I'm not confused anymore. I can finally appreciate the present time, and look forward to living the future.
Thank you for teaching me, Grace Smith.

“Working with Grace Smith has saved me thousands upon thousands of dollars.”

Amber Skye Noyes

I was surprised at how deeply relaxed I was on the very first session for trying something so new. Grace’s voice was incredibly calming and serene but she spoke with direction and purpose, I truly felt guided going to that place that I always avoided but which has all the answers—deep down with within myself!

After counting down backwards with me, She would ask me questions about what I was feeling or seeing within my body and I would answer. If at any time I was unsure I told her so, and she guided me back to a place that seemed clearer with answers. She was like a spiritual tour guide to this inner place that I seldom visit but was so familiar at the same time. I was really impressed by her intuitive sense of which way to guide me “Counting down” might sounds like some scary amusement ride, but there was no anxiety, it was all very peaceful, smooth, and relaxing. Everything from the room, any other problems from my day or other things on my mind melted away and I was able to really focus on discovering answers within myself.

Even with some of the tougher, long standing painful issues I was dealing with, it strangely isn’t scary to face them when you’re deep in hypnosis. It’s just all very calm and revealing. Sometimes I’ve even laughed along with Grace, during hypnosis when seeing the odd cause of something I didn’t expect. The best part was, is that I know that while Grace guided me, those answers came from Me, and were within me the whole time.

I was able to achieve full turnarounds on several skin related issues, I regained more confidence and peace with my voice (I had some pretty serious vocal hoarseness and tension I was holding there when singing and speaking) and I have shifted many negative thought patterns that were preventing me from being the best version of myself! I feel calmer, more peaceful and forgiving to myself and others.

There are so many areas of my life that hypnosis has helped in, physical, emotional and behavioral. I constantly find myself saying to others “oh you should try hypnosis for that!.” I started doing hypnosis when there seemed to be no other answer or thing to try, so “why not/ what do I have to lose,” but now it is usually my First go-to for help with almost any issue, big or small.

There are no tricks or gimmicks, nothing to believe or not believe. At the end of the session, she counts you up and when open your eyes you see the room differently. Afterwards I’ve often remembered every word of the session and other times it’s just a good fuzzy feeling. But I always feel lighter and like a purer, kinder, more amazing version of myself.

I have recommended Grace Smith to so many people. She can talk to anyone from any walk of life. She always has a smile on her face and when you start your session, the most serene voice you could ever imagine. I have told her things I’ve never told anyone; she makes you feel safe and there is never anything except pure understanding and light beaming from her. Grace’s intuitive gifts are what truly set her apart from not just other healers but other hypnotherapists; she can sense when there is more within you to explore, and that’s what I believe creates her profound, lasting results. Nothing she says ever feels scripted because she is so in the present moment with me that she can truly ask and guide perfectly tailored to my journey that day.

Life is Short. Why would you wait another second hiding behind a habit, a belief, dealing with a physical problem that was holding you back from smiling fully everyday, from feeling less pain and more confidence. Maybe you’ll try hypnocoaching as a last resort, after you have tried everything else and have nothing else to lose.

Working with her has saved me thousands upon thousands of dollars. I had bought so many products or other material items to cover up what really needed to be addressed and If I had just done hypnocoaching…well! I would have saved not only dollars but regained lost time not feeling like my best self in so many crucial areas or my everyday life. And you can’t put a price on that!

My advice? Dive right in and save yourself the time and money and create lasting change now. There’s not a better time than right now to be the best you. The process isn’t scary, it actually makes you feel peaceful and calmer. I am so glad I’ve discovered this amazing work and would recommend it to anyone.

“I had been skeptical about hypnosis but through Grace came to know how powerful and effective it is in uncovering limitations that were holding me back from living my best life. Working with Grace has transformed my relationship with my career, my skin, my self-worth and so much more. I’m always telling people: you should try hypnosis for that! and with Close Your Eyes, Get Free, now everyone can!”

“I feel a lot more confident and positive about my abilities and talents; mainly because I now understand that there is no difference between the “me” that I want to become and the “me” of today. I will continue to practice hypnosis for years to come!”

I wanted to help become more focused on my professional goals and taking them from idea to successful products and services. I tried hypnosis before and it didn’t work. Going into my first session with Grace I was skeptical, expecting a simple meditation session and not much else. It was refreshing to hear that Grace was just as skeptical before she tried it as I was.

Grace is an everyday woman with an extraordinary talent. Her soothing voice and energy are just gorgeous. She explained the process in a way that made sense, even for skeptics like me. Drawing from her own experience and expertise, she allows me to relax, let go and allow my inner power to shine through. She also gave me easy-to-follow, highly effective techniques to help keep me focus and strong.

I believe that hypnosis is a powerful technique that can help you with both physical and emotional barriers. I feel a lot more confident and positive about my abilities and talents; mainly because I now understand that there is no difference between the “me” that I want to become and the “me” of today. I will continue to practice hypnosis for years to come!

Even the most skeptical of readers will find in this book important information that will serve them well in their quest to changing negative habits and behaviors. Grace’s book is a significant tool for two main reasons: first, it debunks a lot of the popular myths around hypnosis and second, it helps you learn how to practice self-hypnosis as an empowerment and healing tool. It will help you achieve freedom indeed.

I didn't expect [hypnosis] to be so powerful.

In fact, my experience was a little different. I didn't know what I wanted to fix.

It was December 31 and I wanted to enter this year practicing meditation. At 23:30 I put myself on the floor but didn't know what would be. Then I had this feeling, an intuition to open Facebook... "Facebook? Now?! Hmmm ok". Don't you ever argue with an intuition 😉

There it was: a post on spirit science (fb page) explaining about meditation hypnosis and a link to a video whose purpose was to access the higher self. It was awesome, truly amazing, and after that I was intuited to practice a little of kundalini yoga. I felt like never before in the 5 next days. Thank you so much Grace, for this amazing experience.

[My thoughts on hypnosis were that it] was used to remember repressed traumatic memories.

Social Anxiety [was the issue I wanted hypnosis to fix]-It was challenging to be around groups of people.

About 4 years ago, I had one hypnosis session with a local practitioner in Costa Rica to get some insight into an area of past trauma. I really liked the experience but then I didn’t think much of it afterwards. Last year, a friend had Grace Smith as a guest speaker during her online summit. As I listened to Grace share her story, I was instantly hooked.

I signed up for her offer and begun the 21 day hypnosis bootcamp. I loved it. I followed the program daily for the 21 days and felt so much more calm and connected. I knew I wanted to continue this practice. I already had a daily meditation practice but Grace’s hypnosis felt much more focused. I began to see more and more changes. I had social anxiety and so I really was interested in the Ultimate Anxiety Relief program. As I was listening to these session daily I begun to think about how beneficial they would be in helping people I knew.

I have taught Pilates off and on for a number of years. With the changes I had experienced in my own personal growth I felt like I wanted something more holistic for my students. I also practice reiki, so I felt hypnosis was the modality that would round out my other healing techniques. The mind~body~spirit combination of hypnosis, pilates and reiki feels complete to me. When Grace offered the ability to study online to become a Certified Hypnotherapist only a few months after I began formulating this idea I knew I wanted to pursue the study of hypnosis. I am so grateful I did. It is transformational.

Even having studied psychology, and now being a spiritual person, I was hesitant to use hypnosis because of the lack of control I felt I would have.

I wanted to resolve anxiety that I had my entire life and be able to calm myself down effectively in the moment.

Right after I completed this challenge, I got my driver's license (for the first time) and it helped IMMENSELY to calm my nerves practicing behind-the-wheel with others in the car and now driving around anywhere. Now, when I go out in social situations and events (especially where I do not know anyone), before travel (even traveling alone) and occasional anxiety during the day, I now have the tools to talk to and be compassionate enough with myself to breathe deeply to calm myself down (and sometimes automatically hear Grace's sweet voice in my head).

I wasn’t too familiar with [hypnosis] prior to hearing [Grace Smith] on Periscope and feeling so relaxed at my stressful job.

It was an outlet for me to decompress and not lose my shit.

Mine has been very recent. Danny J created her LifeAF program; which I desperately needed. I’ve had this belief that I was always going to be broke and that I was dumb. I never felt as smart as my friends, peers, that I had this limiting belief that I couldn’t be successful because of this. Low and behold, we start going through the course, and she did the Ho’oponopono and it changed me. I didn’t realize what I was holding onto. Then I thought, I have to do this on a couple of my girlfriends who were abused and lost their mom suddenly to help them recover and heal. I didn’t know I had it in me. I’ve created a few guideded meditations for anxiety, releasing your blocks to move forward in your career and conception. I’ve been using visuals and some suggestions, so in a sense I was doing a smart portion of hypnosis and guided meditation. This was a mere six weeks ago. I started looking at [Grace Smith’s] Hypnotherapy School weeks ago, and I put myself on the list. Knowing you’ve just had Patrick I didn’t expect one to open up. I got a bonus at work, so I scheduled Lasik for my eyes. Surgery was scheduled for the 6th, but it got rescheduled. That next week you opened up school. I knew it was a sign of what I needed to do! I have visions of going to different colleges and speaking with men and women who have been abused/raped for hypnosis. I can only imagine how many people are affected daily, and they are too afraid to see treatment.

I didn't have any strong feelings about [hypnosis]. The only prior association I had with it was past life regression. I suppose my assumption was that this was the primary purpose of hypnosis. I also was somewhat aware of stage hypnosis, but it was mostly an afterthought.

Feeling anxious about my finances [was an issue I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. It was difficult for me to stay organized regarding my finances and sometimes I would dread looking at my accounts so intensely that I would avoid it and then sometimes bills wouldn't be paid on time or I'd over spend. It just seemed like no matter what I would try or no matter how many alarms I would set on my phone or in my calendar, I could not ever seem to feel calm and confident about dealing with or tracking my finances.

I began listening to the Ultimate Anxiety Relief program in Grace Space as well as the Financial Abundance Binary recording in the Grace Space app.

I knew I wanted to release anxiety, and I also knew that most of my anxiety was related to my finances.

After a few more days of listening to the recordings, I started getting ideas for a new direction in my career. One of the big ideas was to start a local sacred women's circle, something I'd normally feel terrified to do. While I am still in the stages of putting these ideas together. I've already begun reaching out to acquaintances and have been enjoying the process so much. Not only are these recordings helping me heal my financial anxiety, they're helping me feel safe and trusting of myself in my ideas for new streams of income as well as moving forward in my desired career.

“Every night just before I go to bed I listen to that SLEEP track and I realized I AM NO LONGER HAVING STRESS DREAMS. It took me about a week to realize they had STOPPED completely.

I was curious [about hypnosis] but had no idea the profound effect it would have on my life.

[I wanted to address] sleep, anxiety, procrastination.  I am working on my own business and working outside the home part-time, and I'd really like to build my confidence and reduce my anxiety and build the courage to be as successful as I can be!

So for a few years, I've focused on sleeping 8 hours a night. Trying to be in bed by 11 and up around 7. Some days it's a little less, some days it's more, but I know that one of the keys to better health is a good night's sleep. I was having the craziest stress dreams. They were always the same content. I'm alone in the restaurant, (which isn't ever really the restaurant, but a field, a hotel, a golf course, etc) and everyone needs a server and coffee and I'm the only one there, there not enough coffee cups and there is no coffee made. Those of you in the service industry know exactly what I'm talking about.


Well, a few weeks ago my friend Rebekah Borucki introduced me to Grace Smith. I signed up for her Grace Space program and starting using most of the therapies, but made a point of listening to "Think Happy" and I downloaded her app which has a SLEEP track. Every night just before I go to bed I listen to that SLEEP track and I realized I AM NO LONGER HAVING STRESS DREAMS. It took me about a week to realize they had STOPPED completely. I have just had the longest work week in the past year, some nights only getting 5 hours of sleep, but STILL no crazy stress dreams.


I worked three times the hours I normally do, no weird dreams and every night I slept like a baby. My first day off in 7 days and I Feel GREAT!

I had tried self hypnosis in the past based on books or articles I had read, but I struggled to do it on my own without guidance.

Depression and Anxiety [were the issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].

I was severely depressed, unemployed, and living in my parents’ basement.  My mental and physical health had deteriorated so much that I could hardly get out of bed.  On the days that I was able to muster up the strength to try and apply for jobs I was often overcome with anxiety attacks.  One day, I found a video on YouTube of Grace leading a guided hypnosis.  I couldn’t believe how free I felt after just a few minutes of hypnosis.  I quickly found the 21 day hypnosis sessions and started doing it each morning and evening.  I was able to listen to my subconscious! I slowly began [to believe] that it was possible to change my life.  I had no idea how, but didn’t concern myself with that. Instead, I stayed consistent each day focused on self-healing.  By the end of the sessions, I had completely transformed my thinking.  I no longer thought it might be possible to change my life, I had already changed it.  Each day, I completed small steps toward my future goals.  I scheduled my NCLEX, passed, applied for jobs, and was offered a position at the job I wanted most!  Within months of believing it was possible to change, I started my dream job, had a new car, and moved into an incredible house with breathtaking views.

I thought [hypnosis] was more of a trick during events.... never thought it would really work for me.

- smoking- yes that night I had one more cigarette and after that never touched it again. EVER
- weightloss- this is so much deeper than I think the smoking was... still a work in progress but I'm now 20lbs lighter than before I got pregnant 😉
- stress reduction at work- YES!!! So many great tools- I thought I was going to lose my job, and I am getting promoted to VP of Revenue... executive level, WHAT!!

I've been thinking a lot about Grace Smith lately and how a simple Groupon has DRAMATICALLY changed my life!  It would be easier to discuss over the phone but short answer is - I went in to quit smoking and did immediately, then went back for weight loss, then trouble began at work simultaneously.  I thought for sure I was going to be fired, just negativity all around me. I hated my life, my job and I wanted out! Grace Smith taught me that... my job isn't everything, and to start manifesting my destination. I wanted to move to Austin, Texas so badly... and I kept on dreaming about it.  I had the perfect vision with me and two kids and my husband in what I thought was Austin, Texas.  Up until this point I didn't want children... but then things started to pour out of me with Grace Smith. The next thing I knew I was pregnant, and I had a boy who my husband insisted we named Austin (he was dead set against having children!!!) So talk about manifestation, but in a very different way.  Anyways, now I'm working with people outside of work for health and fitness, which is my passion and my outlet from work. I've met a wonderful girl because of Grace Smith related to BeachBody... I've made new friends and started a way new chapter in my life. AND I can't help to think that this all started with a Groupon with Grace.  [Grace Smith has] been a pivotal person in my life to help me change into wanting to lead my life by design, and not by accident. I'm still very much a work in progress, but I have a very deep special spot in my heart for Grace Smith and the work she has done for me and so many others.

“It was the first time that I realized that first grade year could have been the kickstart to my nail biting/picking problem. I saw myself in hypnosis doing the exact thing I have had a habit of doing. It was eye-opening.”

Jen Ingalls

Read More
I knew nothing about hypnosis before starting, and only knew of "stage hypnosis," and wasn't sure how it was going to work in a therapy setting. I was open to trying and had no preconceived notions beforehand. I was actually hoping it was more like "magic" and a quick-fix. My friend's mom went to two hypnotherapy sessions and quit smoking cold-turkey. I was hoping the same would happen with nail biting.

My initial problem I wanted to deal with was nail biting/picking. My nails and cuticles were becoming so painful and destroyed from picking them. It was soon discovered that it wasn't really only the aesthetic reason of how my nails looked, but getting more to the root of the problem for why I was doing it - and that was stress and anxiety (mostly from my job).

Back in winter of 2012, after having been living in Manhattan for 9 months, I saw a LivingSocial deal for a Hypnotherapist session. I had never done hypnotherapy before and truly knew nothing about it.. except that my friend's mother quit smoking after only a session or two. I had something that had been on my mind for years, but more recently and within the entire year of 2012 had gotten pretty bad - I wanted to break my disgusting habit of nail and cuticle biting/picking.

I have bit my nails for as long as I can remember, and when I was 16, my mom said, "I bit my nails until I was 16. You'll stop this year." I didn't. At 21 years old as a Junior in college I said to myself "enough is enough.. my cuticles are dry and gross and my thumbs are sore and I sometimes pick at the skin until it bleeds, and this is not attractive and it's nasty and painful and I'm done."  I didn't stop. So by 24 years old in 2012, after I had been working in my first post-college job for over a year and my job itself was extremely stressful already, I felt like I needed to try something new and instead of spending money on another Livingsocial restaurant deal, invest in something for myself and my own well-being.

I saw Grace's picture and read a little bit about Awaken NYC and decided to buy the e-deal and commit to a 6PM session on a random weeknight to see if one session with a pretty stranger could wipe away a quarter of a century worth of short stubby fingernails and straggly cuticles.

I remember being SO nervous my first session.. asked to used the bathroom beforehand because I was scared I'd have to pee while in hypnosis and I'd pee myself or something crazy. I remember Grace explaining the difference of stage hypnosis versus what she does, and that I won't wake up and have experienced a true blackout where I don't remember anything (and secretly she had made me dance around like a chicken or something) but instead, we are targeting the subconscious mind and I'd be experiencing a slight dream-state, etc. After my first session, I felt really comfortable with Grace Smith more than anything. I saw her as like an older-sister type.. and she also had an eerie resemblance to my goofy friend and roommate at the time, so I felt ever more connected to her. 🙂

I had about 8 sessions with Grace in Awaken NYC over the course of the next few months, and about my 4th session in, we had a really awesome breakthrough. Grace had me under in hypnosis and she prompted me to regress backwards in time. She had me try to recall my earliest memory, and then from there to a memory when I was a little girl... not a baby. And what flowed to me next was incredible. For the first time in about 15-20 years, I really accounted my experience as a 6-year old first grader in elementary school. Under hypnosis, I could remember my outfits, my classroom, my teacher, my classmates, etc. As Grace asked questions and we talked about that early memory, I described the overall experience of that year. **(Side note: as an adult, when I was about 20, sometimes I talked to my mom and dad about that first year. My recollection is that I had this great group of girlfriends, and it was fun, but my teacher was mean. That's really it. My mom, on the other hand, thinks I was "kind of depressed that year." She says, "You would come home from school, and just sit on the couch and watch TV. And your only friend on our street was this weird boy across the street that you would sometimes go outside and play with. and I would ask you, 'Jenny, how's school?' and you'd said, 'it's fine.'  but you really lost the life in you and you didn't smile much. And you would say how mean Mrs. Cottone was." THIS BLEW MY MIND! I didn't know I was "depressed" or "not my bubbly, usual self"... how sad at 6 years old to be perceived as "down" and depressed by your parents!)

SO... I knew of this but we hadn't talked about it in years and I never really tried to go back and remember that first-grade year. But under hypnosis that session, I was talking about that year - the classroom, the teacher, getting in trouble for talking in class too much, etc. And when I was describing one incident where I remember getting called out in the middle of class and yelled at by my teacher because she thought I was talking to this girl Kate (when really Kate leaned over and asked me a question about a book I had on my desk, and I was just answering her). Grace said, "Good Jen.. this is great detail. Now tell me.. what do you see? What are you physically doing at this time? Where are your hands?" and I saw myself, embarrassed and cowered, getting yelled at by my mean Russian teacher, with my hands under my desk, rapidly picking my fingernails, out of nervousness, stress and anxiety. It was the first time that I realized that first grade year could have been the kickstart to my nail biting/picking problem. I saw myself in hypnosis doing the exact thing I have had a habit of doing. It was eye-opening. And from there, Grace and I would try to get to the root of when I pick my nails, in what environment, under what circumstances, what times of day, etc. so that I could try and 1) be more aware of it and 2) use some techniques to try and stop.


Over the course of the next year of so, we spoke pretty frequently, and my relationship with Grace expanded from just my nail-biting issue, to all of the other things she is so knowledgeable about. We spoke about life, and meditation and Past Life regressions, and the meaning of life. She ended up moving her office out of Manhattan, and I ended up leaving Manhattan December of 2013, but I continued to try and use daily mediation to stay calm and less anxious. I gained the courage to quit my stressful miserable job, leave the city that was overcrowded, expensive and making me anxious, and moved home to South Jersey in January 2014. I changed my city and my job to better help me get mentally and spiritually healthier.

Fast-forward 2.5 years... am I still biting my nails? No. (Because I keep them constantly manicured with gel). Am I still picking the gel off of my nails when my manicure starts to chip every 2 weeks? Yes. Once the gel is picked off, do I pick at my cuticles? Sometimes. Is it exacerbated by boredom or stress? Yes. Do I tend to do it more after a few cocktails? Also yes. But are there weeks at a time where my nails are healthy and growing and manicured and I don't touch them at all? YES. My point is that 8-10 hypnotherapy sessions over 3 years ago did not "cure me" or my 20+ year old long habit. If I had stuck with it, and really committed would it have? Maybe. But hypnotherapy isn't magic. It takes time, and patience and practice.. and takes a lot of self-talk and self-identification of the root of the problem. I wasn't "cured" from occasionally making my nails nasty and short and painful... but I did find clarity in what was triggering that for me. I recognized that my job and living in NYC was not good for me anymore... it was too stressful and my job was making me miserable and anxious and I needed to make a change. That change came after moving home in 2014, and then moving again into Philadelphia with my boyfriend in 2015… and working in a new job... and I have been the happiest and calmest and most alive I've been in years.

I was very curious about [hypnosis] and had heard lots of success stories from friends who had used it to quit smoking. A very dear friend of mine, Dan, was having regular hypnosis sessions to help him with anxiety and productivity and he has always been someone whose life I admire. He told me wonderful things about his experiences with hypnotherapy so I was eager to try it as well.

I was gifted my session by my mother who thought it might help me quit smoking. I however didn't feel ready to quit at the time, so I decided to use the session to help me with my anxiety and procrastination. I wanted to be doing more to help myself be a more disciplined and successful musician.

I only had one session in person with Grace and it remains (sadly) the only live hypnosis session I've yet had, but it was such an eye-opening experience that I truly consider it the beginning of a shift in my life; I am only now beginning to realize the magnitude of. Meeting Grace, being in the same room with her - I felt as if I was in the presence of an angel. There was something so magnificently warm and genuine about [Grace’s] energy that made me feel so safe and full of possibility. I knew that she, like my friend Dan who inspired me to try hypnotherapy, was someone who I wanted to be more like. Being in trance was such a delicious feeling it, I remember feeling pleasantly stoned the entire day afterwards. I initially experienced a delightful boost in my discipline with working on my music and writing. Unfortunately life got hectic and I never made it back in for follow-up sessions. However I stayed in touch with Grace Smith through her Grace Notes emails and my interest in hypnosis has only grown over time. When I received an email about potentially enrolling in her certification program, I felt it as a calling. The moment I decided to do it, it was as if a giant weight I hadn't realized I had been carrying was lifted off my shoulders and I saw so clearly this path to the future I wanted for myself and the means to help people and society as a whole in a way I've felt desperate to do. Since beginning my studies and practicing hypnosis on my own on a nearly daily basis, I have successfully quit smoking, played the best shows of my career as a singer, transformed my yoga practice (and my body!), and am in the healthiest relationship of my life. I cannot wait to see where this discipline takes me as I look back and see how much my life has already changed since hypnosis became a part of it.

My thoughts on hypnosis were that it's a lot of weird things we needed to go through, but I knew that a friend of my had many results to heal her wrong eating habits. I thought that if it would help her with that it might help me too after I tried everything under the sun already.

I could not focus on what I wanted to do with my life. We moved to Canada from the Netherland in 2010 and after becoming adjusted here I wanted to start a home-based business for myself that wasn't MLM. Now 7 years later, I went through starting up two online businesses, and they both did not come off the ground. After that, I started an expensive course to become a life coach, but this course only made me feel worse about myself, and I was feeling like a complete failure. I never finished this course and started telling myself that I would always stay small and I better start getting used to that. It did not feel good to me because deep down I know I am made for bigger things in this life and now I was turning 40 I wanted to deal with this failure feeling for ones and for all.

I am still working on this success story as I started working with Sara and feel I can start up a business from home and work towards that for spring 2018 and join your school to become a Grace Smith certified  Hypnotherapist. It feels I finally found something I am able to work towards and know where I'm going. My goal is to have my success story ready before I finished the school.

I used to think hypnosis was scary, that it was like giving up your subconscious mind to another person, as the Hollywood movies portray. I was always under the impression that I would be fully unconscious during the session, but it's nothing like that!

I had awful, almost debilitating social anxiety for around 2 years, and a milder form of it for years before that. I wasn't able to make new friends, I could barely ever go to a store for fear of interaction with sales people. It was very difficult for me to communicate with other adults at work. It had recently become hard to even talk to my family! I wanted to feel comfortable having a casual conversation with people and be able to chase my dreams without anxiety!

Before I started using Grace Space hypnosis, I felt trapped by social anxiety. I hadn't made friends for a few years, and being pretty fresh out of high school, I didn't really have any of my old friends around. It got worse as time went on; I couldn't go to stores or make doctor's appointments because I was so anxiety-ridden about the interaction. It got to the point where speaking with my family was difficult and I was avoiding them as much as I could. I knew I had to do SOMETHING when I was avoiding my dad and it was impacting our relationship. I signed up for Grace Smith's anxiety challenge, and before it began Grace offered an anxiety bundle of 3 anxiety recordings for $20. I bought it and began listening to all of them, but I really focused on the social anxiety recording. After listening to it nightly for about a week, I began noticing that I could talk to people. It was the most AMAZING feeling. I had no idea how much I was missing out! My life has improved tenfold. I got the job I wanted and desperately needed, and was even able to ask for more money for more work during the interview! I am now following my dreams and making friends every single day. I'm so happy with the results that I joined Grace Space and began  Grace Smith’s hynotherapy school! I want to spread this gift and give every person I meet the ability to live their best lives! Thank you Grace Smith!

I didn't really have thoughts on hypnosis one way or another, to be honest. It had never really landed on my radar. But once I discovered you through Danny (I think!) and you explained hypnosis to us as just "Meditation with a Goal," I became super interested to try it out!

Feeling confident in myself and my creativity again after getting sober, conquering addiction (including sugar cravings!) and learning to love myself again. Also eliminating chronic extreme anxiety and attracting abundance! I wanted to fix these things because I've been through so much in my life and was ready to start fresh, to start new. The time is now!

(First of all, I have an entire life story that should be a Hallmark Movie. It includes being born in the Midwest as a virtuosic singer/songwriter and live performer, losing my father at a young age yet his body still being here on earth due to a traumatic brain injury (then having a spiritual connection with him now), witnessing addiction in all its forms break apart my family, getting a Vocal Scholarship to the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, then discovering that addiction had also grasped onto me in all its forms (co-dependent relationships, #MeToo, drugs, alcohol, pills, sugar, food, etc.) in my early 20s living in Hollywood and going down that dark path for 3+ years... then the heartwarming story of overcoming addiction at 25 years old and getting sober, writing a hit song out of it, and becoming a Healer, Transformation Coach, and studying Hypnotherapist. Finally able to live out my Life Purpose - to be a Light for others so that they too may See.

At this point now - January 2018 - I have used Hypnosis to attract over $10,000 of EXTRA money into my life (major ABUNDANCE) and have also relieved chronic EXTREME ANXIETY, along with everything else listed above. Using the amazing healing capacity of Hypnotherapy, I finally feel confident in myself and my creativity again. After getting sober, I have conquered addiction (including sugar cravings!) and have learned to love myself again.
From her second survey:

At first, I only signed up to receive your Grace Notes, introduced through Danny J after doing her "Find the Money" Program since I was drowning in student loan and credit card debt. I was intrigued by these Grace Notes and instantly felt close to you, as I read/write/think/teach the same thing. From there I researched your website and felt a God-nudge to learn and teach hypnosis as well, from you specifically. The year was 2016 and I noticed your Hypnotherapy School offering had just launched. I really thought about signing up right then and there (mind you, without EVER even listening to one of your hypnosis recordings - just basing it off my impression of you and feeling of good, positive, loving energy!) but at the time my financial situation didn't allow me to be able to move forward. However, from that moment I kept following your journey as a leader (even more intensely this time), joined your Weight Loss Challenge GraceSpace Facebook Group, and had my first hypnosis success! I then purchased a few of your recordings and began to listen to them daily.

I experienced immediate results with the No More Sugar Hypnosis and became an even bigger believer. Feeling the addictive 'need' to eat sweets and junk food to numb myself had been taken away from me! It was a miracle.

When I love something I spread it far and wide fast, so from there I started telling all my friends about you, your wonderful Divine Purpose, the fact that you are also a Lightworker and leader in this new age, and knew 1000% that I must study with you. My intuition is almost ALWAYS correct, and after getting sober 2 years ago I have learned to follow my heart more and more.

Then, in the FB Weight Loss Group, when you shared in one of your live videos that you were sober as well and overcame your addiction, I broke down and cried. Tears of joy. Right in that moment, I knew again that God had led me to you for a VERY important reason - and that deeper connection we share of going through the 12 Steps together - connects us in the matrix even more. This was all divinely orchestrated, so it must be done. It was God's will to work with you, so now the excitement kicked in even more, know that I was finally following MY purpose!

Hypnotherapy is such a beautiful healing modality and a way for us to give back to the world. I know that my passion - just like yours has - will lead many new people to heal and recover from their struggles and challenges. Hallelujah and Amen! I can't wait to continue healing myself through Hypnotherapy alongside your lovely expertise to add this modality as well to my practice as a Healer and Lightworker.

More of my Hypnotherapy success since then can be contributed to doing the Anxiety recordings in Grace Space and truly feeling better than I've felt in a long time. Now I can BREATHE through things and feel a deep sense of peace within, instead of fear. And since doing your latest Abundance Challenge, I have attracted over $10,000 of EXTRA MONEY into my life! That includes things coming out of nowhere... getting a check for $8,000 from an old car accident settlement finally coming through, signing a $3500 songwriting deal with a minimum of $10,000 in royalties coming in once it is released, signing on a new healing client who reached out to me on Day 3 of the Abundance Challenge and purchasing my $1500 CyberScan package, among many other examples. I have a full list if you'd like to take a look 🙂

“I had always struggled with my weight, and had been successful at losing 50+ lbs but was "parked" at about 20lbs over my goal. I KNEW it was mental, my relationship with food was NOT good and MORE than losing the 20lbs I wanted to resolve my relationship with food.”

I had always struggled with my weight, and had been successful at losing 50+ lbs but was "parked" at about 20lbs over my goal. I KNEW it was mental, my relationship with food was NOT good and MORE than losing the 20lbs I wanted to resolve my relationship with food.
Also, I was living in NYC (it had always been a dream to live there) at the time and feeling depressed and lost. I didn't have a partner (I was in my early 30s), was dating all the wrong people, didn't have a job that I loved, and was seeking to be happy and satisfied with my life.
I had always wanted to try [hypnosis] but never followed through because I hadn't found someone I felt I would click with. I always believed in our minds being SO powerful (and still do) and thought that with the right person, or guide, hypnosis could be so POWERFUL (boy was I right)! I followed Erin Stutland on FB (this was in 5+ years ago) and she made mention of [Grace Smith]...I immediately went to the page and everything that I read totally resonated with me- so I immediately called!
I first met Grace Smith in Feb of 2014, and she CHANGED my LIFE. FOREVER. I really am so extremely BEYOND grateful to have met her, she, and our sessions and recordings, have gotten me through the TOUGHEST times over the last 4+ years.
My two biggest "issues" were weight/relationship with food and finding a purpose, path, partner.
I'll start with weight, and I won't lie- it's a challenge, because I met Grace with 30+ years of "cultivating" my unhealthy relationship with food. WE REALLY FOCUSED ON [MY UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD], VERSUS LOSING THE WEIGHT, BECAUSE I KNEW THAT THE WEIGHT WOULD DROP OFF ONCE THAT RELATIONSHIP WAS BETTER. I dropped 10+ lbs of the 15 I wanted to lose. I have maintained that weight loss since. My relationship with food is still strained at times, like any relationship ;), but I am constantly working on it, I listen to my recordings with Grace, and sometimes even jump on a session with her live (when I'm lucky) for a refresher...it's work, just like being in a human to human relationship!

As for my path, purpose, partner...whoa what a success story I have here! Since I started working with Grace I have moved back to Colorado and met and MARRIED the man of my dreams!! while I am now in a job that I KNOW is not my path, or my passion, working with Grace has SHOWN me how to KNOW that, and that, is priceless. I am able to clearly know that it's time for a change, and why, and this is something I was never bale to do before. I work in an environment where I feel obligated to do a lot of the things that I do, for many reasons, and my sessions with Grace have been so helpful in listening to ME and figuring out what is right for ME.

I am most recently participating in her "21 day abundance" challenge. having had one-on-one sessions with Grace for many years, and with my success stories, I of course, know how powerful she and hypnosis are...but participating in this group challenge has been incredible! The challenge is focused on abundance and each hypnosis is better than the last, really! I have already brought in over $500 of 'extra' cash into my life, and now my relationship with money is completely changing, for the positive (I already had a positive relationship with it, but Grace and this challenge has managed to make it even more positive!)

I have had dozens of sessions (lucky me!), from my weight loss focused ones all the way to full on panic attacks that her recordings have gotten me through...Grace has not only changed my life, but in many ways, SAVED it. I cannot wait to see (and experience) what is next for Grace and hypnosis going mainstream!

I had tried it with a therapist at a young age (around 14) but never really believed or was open to it. I had my doubts that I’d be able to open myself up to it all these years later, thinking I may always be “thinking”…when I found [Grace Smith], though, I decided to make a commitment and have an open mind. It took a few sessions and some work to do that but wow, did I change fast! I had a laundry list of things to work on and I must say- the changes in my life are crazy in a short two years ( I think it’s been two years)…. Where to begin.. 1. weight – I had always been overweight and had recently lost and maintained about a 50lb loss (about 4 years before starting to work with grace) I was 20 lbs away from my goal though and it seemed nothing I did got me there… 2. relationship- I wanted to find a meaningful and real relationship. I had never had any long term relationships before, they were always with this men that were never present, treated me badly or lied to me…there was always something that felt wrong 3. I wanted to find meaning in my life/career I will have to send minor details now but would be HAPPY to fill in with more if wanted!! 1. weight- I have never been this low, and am BEYOND thrilled with my results. I’m learning every day to LOVE my body…it’s work, and still is and probably will be…but I’m in a size 28 jean, 6 dress and feel great! 2. I’M ENGAGED to the LOVE OF MY LIFE! I feel I never would have been able to be in the type of relationship I’m in without the work I have done with Grace. We are open, honest and communicate constantly. It is all I have ever wanted out of a relationship…and more! 3. I just started as CEO of my family’s business…I have been working in different capacities at the company for almost 14 years now and last year moved back to Colorado from NYC for a temporary 2 months, I ended up extending, extending, extending…not only did I fall in love (and get engaged, last week!) but I ended up falling back in love with the project and realizing it is what I’m MEANT TO do! I started as CEO last week. Starting soon I will start CEO work with Grace!

“With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.”

I thought you would be "put under" and be under the control of the therapist....Or totally hokey and wouldn't work at all.

Anxiety and anger/mood swings [were the issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].
I do not like the the way I "behave", and it makes me feel awful for myself and those around me.

I am a stay-at-home mom in my late forties.  I had one 90 minute breakthrough session with Grace Smith to deal with some increasing anxiety.  I had no prior experience with hypnotherapy. Five years ago, I attended traditional psychotherapy for a year.  The sessions felt good while I was there, but I was seeing no lasting results.

Grace was very forthcoming and honest about what hypnotherapy would and would not do.  I wasn't to expect overnight 100% resolution to my issues. It would probably take several days to see any reduction in my symptoms.

The day after my session, I was in a situation that would instantly trigger a medium amount of anxiety.  I normally feel a sharp energy right in my heart, with a quickened heart and breath rate. I felt absolutely nothing in my heart, no quickness of breath. It was unbelievable.  It didn't even realize the extent I had been living with anxiety until it wasn't there.  I actually tried to recreate the feeling because the absence of my anxiety felt so strange.  It was a breakthrough moment that I needed help, and hypnotherapy could help me.

I also noticed I wasn't as reactive when things didn't go as planned with my husband and teenagers.  We had a minor incident that I normally would have exploded. I had a very calm reaction with no internal anxiety, and I completely moved on.  My reaction was so far from my norm, that my family thought, wow, she is really really upset, and we better steer clear. The changes I was experiencing where quick, drastic, and noticeable to everyone around.

Although I still have some anxiety, the intensity and frequency are dramatically reduced.  With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.

I am an actor and came to Grace initially to work on anxiety in auditions and performance. After a month of working with her I booked a leading role in my first National Tour! I have continued to coach with her in phone sessions as I travel around the country performing.

After just a few sessions, she helped me realize a dream that I had been struggling to achieve for years. Grace is exceptional at what she does. She is warm, intelligent and creative and uses these skills to craft individualized sessions that are extremely effective. In the coaching portion of our session, she directs me to talk about one specific issue that I’d like to work on and then expertly recalls the specific images and language that I used during the hypnosis portion of the session.

When coaching with Grace, it always feels like I am being gently guided to heal myself. The experience has been invaluable to my career and my life. I have already referred several close friends to her and recommend her highly.

I was open minded about [hypnosis] but had never tried it before.

I continue to want to become more comfortable with my own inner compassionate voice (and not the inner critic) so that I approach the world from a place of confidence, compassion, and love rather than fear and keeping myself small.

I'm continuing to have success stories but mostly was so intrigued by hypnotherapy after doing the group class on "Increasing your Intuition" in the tree house at Soul Camp. The positive thoughts that Grace Smith spoke truly ran through me that day in the tree house and I have carried them with me ever since. Things like "it is safe to trust myself" and interacting with "little me" are things that have been re programmed in my brain.

[I felt] intrigued and curious; open to the [hypnosis] experience.

Compulsive nail biting that had evolved into head scratch.

I was a nail biter since childhood. Bit my nails down to the skin (would bite a piece, peel the nail down to the nail bed, then bit it off which created a little hole. Then I bit from the bottom up). Super disgusting, right? Over time I got control over the compulsion (frequent manicures, self-control, etc.). During a stressful time in my life I found myself scratching my head. I wasn't biting my nails anymore but I would have a little itch on my scalp, scratch it, get a tiny scab, scratch it off, over and over and over again. I realized that it was essentially the same habit manifesting in a new way. And it was/is an anti-social and self-destructive habit that I wanted to break. I was very receptive to hypnosis. I was very open and wanted [hypnosis] to work so I didn't resist even though it was weird and a little scary to give up control. The experience was relaxing and invigorating. And I stopped head scratching immediately. Just lost the urge. It wasn't like I had to "try" to control the impulse, it just wasn't there. Amazing. This last about 4 months. (Here's the bad part but you don't have to talk about this in the book.) When I started to regress I called the woman I worked with and she had left Grace's office and then Grace left Grace's NY office. So, I didn't go back and the habit reemerged. And that's my story. A semi-success story.

January 6, 2014 is an important date for me. It’s the date that, via the help and teaching of Grace Smith, I took my power back. In doing so, it was if I was reborn. You can’t go up the mountain and not come down the other side a changed being. I am still Leah; I still love to laugh, read, cook, spend time with my children (human and furry), family and friends. I still hate asparagus, bad drivers and when my hair is staticky. I am still me and yet I am not.

I took part in Grace’s “trance-formation challenge” and came down the other side of the mountain a better me. One who was able to recognize anxiety as it was creeping up and stop it in its tracks. One who was able to live fully in the moment and experience whatever emotion came with that moment and still have an underlying sense of peace through it all. I was able to go to my doctor and tell her that I was finally ready to be weaned off the anxiety meds that had helped me up until this point and then was able to celebrate once I had.

I walked taller, sat straighter, looked people in the eye and was filled with genuine confidence. I was also able to empathize on an even deeper level and to sho1 who weren’t walking tall, those who couldn’t control their anxiety, those who weren’t happy, confident and at peace. And I was able to refer them to Grace and to show them, by my own actions and newfound “me-ness” that change was possible, attainable and permanent.

Tonight, myself and the other two challenge winners were blessed to be able to take part in a group session with Grace. We were able to share in more depth all that we had learned and accomplished and all that we still had left to accomplish. We were able to connect, build trust and friendship and a community; a community that was like minded in wanting to better ourselves so that we in turn, even if just by our actions, could better others. It was a surreal moment in that I have never felt so connected, so open, so receptive, and so empowered.

Two of Grace’s challenges to us were to write a life plan and a mantra for ourselves. While my full life plan can be found on her Facebook page, the small part I want to share here is that I was so inspired by her willingness and want to help others, that I now plan on becoming a licensed hypnotherapist. I feel it is my calling to give back what she helped me to receive. And it is because i feel that way that my mantra is: “Passion, Purpose, Peace.”

If you have tried everything else and still feel lost and embattled, let Grace help you take your power back so that you can live!!!

“Every night just before I go to bed I listen to that SLEEP track and I realized I AM NO LONGER HAVING STRESS DREAMS. It took me about a week to realize they had STOPPED completely.

I was curious [about hypnosis] but had no idea the profound effect it would have on my life.

[I wanted to address] sleep, anxiety, procrastination.  I am working on my own business and working outside the home part-time, and I'd really like to build my confidence and reduce my anxiety and build the courage to be as successful as I can be!

So for a few years, I've focused on sleeping 8 hours a night. Trying to be in bed by 11 and up around 7. Some days it's a little less, some days it's more, but I know that one of the keys to better health is a good night's sleep. I was having the craziest stress dreams. They were always the same content. I'm alone in the restaurant, (which isn't ever really the restaurant, but a field, a hotel, a golf course, etc) and everyone needs a server and coffee and I'm the only one there, there not enough coffee cups and there is no coffee made. Those of you in the service industry know exactly what I'm talking about.


Well, a few weeks ago my friend Rebekah Borucki introduced me to Grace Smith. I signed up for her Grace Space program and starting using most of the therapies, but made a point of listening to "Think Happy" and I downloaded her app which has a SLEEP track. Every night just before I go to bed I listen to that SLEEP track and I realized I AM NO LONGER HAVING STRESS DREAMS. It took me about a week to realize they had STOPPED completely. I have just had the longest work week in the past year, some nights only getting 5 hours of sleep, but STILL no crazy stress dreams.


I worked three times the hours I normally do, no weird dreams and every night I slept like a baby. My first day off in 7 days and I Feel GREAT!

I had an issue with confidence and really wanted to fix it as I have had to do performances singing and didn't want confidence to affect how my performance was.

I then found Grace Smith on Periscope and some of your hypnoscopes helped me in my confidence issue due to this I am now able to do performance without as much of a problem.

“Grace Smith and hypnosis took away my fear and gave me the confidence to be the practicing doula I am today.”

Erica Stauffer

I had never experienced hypnosis but was open to it.

I was in the process of quitting my "day job" and pursuing my passion of being a doula and student midwife. I was scared that I didn't have enough experience to be successful and was afraid to market my business.

After being at a job for 14 years that wasn't rewarding to me, I found my passion in the form of birth. After the birth of my fourth child, I realized that helping mothers through childbirth was my calling and I immediately worked on doula certification with the intent to begin midwifery school once my doula practice had taken off the ground. I completed my doula certification and then became a bit frightened. I had done a few births but wasn't gaining the traction I needed. I knew that I needed to market myself online as well as in person (via birth fairs, visits to OBGYN offices and birth centers, as well as be a featured speaker in birth classes) but I found myself questioning if I had enough experience and knowledge to do this. I worried that I would be seen as a fraud or that clients would immediately turn me away when they saw that I had a minimal number of births under my belt. It was during my maternity leave of my 5th baby that I came across Grace Smith and she was offering a special to talk to her and record a 15-20 min hypnosis over the phone. I was open to the idea and so I set up an appointment. I was really nervous when it was time for my appointment but as soon as I heard [Grace Smith]’s voice, I felt at ease. She asked me several questions about my work, my children, my dream of becoming a successful doula and midwife, among other things. In the time we spoke, [Grace Smith] was able to perfectly summarize what my goal was which really had nothing to do with finances or money but rather that I wanted to help women through childbirth to feel as empowered and amazing as I had felt by trusting their bodies to birth a baby and to know that they could do it. I have always thought that if a woman can give birth, she can do anything and I wanted women to know the powerful being that they are. We then did the hypnosis and Grace Smith sent me a copy via email. After listening to [hypnosis recording] one time, my fear vanished. I'm not sure how or why, but I called a prenatal and postpartum chiropractor and scheduled a meeting to go over my doula services. I didn't question my experience any longer because Grace Smith made me realize that my experience as a mother of 5 was all that I needed and that my heart and maternal knowledge helped me to know and understand what pregnant mothers needed to birth their babies and to ease their labor pains and any fears. My website began to receive more views, I created a Facebook webpage, went to my first birth event where I had my own booth and met several new clients. Grace Smith and hypnosis took away my fear and gave me the confidence to be the practicing doula I am today. I am now a full time doula and began midwifery school 7 months ago and am on my way to realizing my dream. I absolutely know that hypnosis did this for me and have no doubt as to its influence. Thank you so much, Grace Smith. You have changed my life for the better.

I wanted to help become more focused on my professional goals and taking them from idea to successful products and services. I tried hypnosis before and it didn’t work. Going into my first session with Grace I was skeptical, expecting a simple meditation session and not much else. It was refreshing to hear that Grace was just as skeptical before she tried it as I was.

Grace is an everyday woman with an extraordinary talent. Her soothing voice and energy are just gorgeous. She explained the process in a way that made sense, even for skeptics like me. Drawing from her own experience and expertise, she allows me to relax, let go and allow my inner power to shine through. She also gave me easy-to-follow, highly effective techniques to help keep me focus and strong.

I believe that hypnosis is a powerful technique that can help you with both physical and emotional barriers. I feel a lot more confident and positive about my abilities and talents; mainly because I now understand that there is no difference between the “me” that I want to become and the “me” of today. I will continue to practice hypnosis for years to come!

Even the most skeptical of readers will find in this book important information that will serve them well in their quest to changing negative habits and behaviors. Grace’s book is a significant tool for two main reasons: first, it debunks a lot of the popular myths around hypnosis and second, it helps you learn how to practice self-hypnosis as an empowerment and healing tool. It will help you achieve freedom indeed.

“One benefit I didn't anticipate, but one that I cherish, is that the self-compassion is expanding my awareness of others and leading me to be more compassionate in my dealing with others and with my environment.”

Susan Forbes

I was dubious, but hopeful [about hypnosis]. I have meditated for years and I know the benefits of meditation. I am also a very spiritual person, so I was hopeful that I could relax and experience something new.

First, I wanted to stop eating JUNK FOOD. I am healthy, fit and knew that that was not something I wanted in my body, but I seem to have no control over the cravings. Second, I wanted to work on de-stressing and having fears about getting sick. I have a high stress job that I enjoy, but I know that the stress was affecting other areas of my life and I didn't like it. Because we lost a child to cancer, I was, for the first time, afraid of becoming sick. Third, as I get ready to retire and pursue artistic endeavors as part of my retirement, I wanted to learn to let go of my "get it done now" attitude so that the creative and compassionate side of me would open up and flourish.

Goal 1--dropping junk food. Well, this has been an issue for me FOREVER. After the first session with Grace, I began to see my craving thought process interrupted. I wouldn't just jump into a box of cookies. Instead I would think about what was triggering that craving, and perhaps meditate through it. Now the first week, I did have some sweets, but not as many and only one day. That's a success right there! I listened to our session several times during the week---sometimes when I was out on a run. That was a great combination---healthy activity supported by healthy choices. The second session Grace [Smith] created an element of aversion---saying that junk food was poison and helping me to imagine how I needed real food from the earth to nourish my active and stressed body. I have a stubborn little girl streak and this little girl was part of the narrative of my hypnosis. I was going to help myself by helping my stubborn little girl show herself (and myself) self-compassion by eating yummy, whole foods and throwing away the junk food. In my hypnosis, I cleaned out all the junk food in my house. When I got home that evening---I cleared out all my junk food!!! Since that second session, I haven't had any junk food. It's not that I haven't had cravings--instead, I make a loving healthy choice for myself. All this great behavior is happening while at work, I am working 15 hour days---very busy stressful days. But by nourishing my body well---I am managing the stress and we hadn't even done the stress hypnosis yet!!! When we focused on de-stressing, I was then able to destress on command based on a suggestion made during a session. So despite crazy crazy work hours, I was happy, not overly tired and not eating junk food, which used to be my comfort food!! I listen to the sessions that Grace [Smith] tapes for me and I hear new things every time I listen, so it doesn't feel repetitive. We just started goal 3--opening up my channel of creativity. But already, I am seeing common things differently--clouds are not just clouds. The colors of flowers seem to vibrate. And I am thinking about how I want my first days of art in retirement to be--being still, listening and observing. Sitting with my tools--appreciating what I can do with them. Looking quietly at things that inspire me. Observing normal things like cars going by and seeing the energy  in them and allowing myself to imagine how I can become a part of those items--and what it feels like. Suspending my highly active rational brain so that my creative energy flows from me and into me. I have more sessions left and I cannot wait to see how all these practices inter-relate and intertwine.  One benefit I didn't anticipate, but one that I cherish, is that the self-compassion is expanding my awareness of others and leading me to be more compassionate in my dealing with others and with my environment. I try to smile at everyone--and I am finding that I am attracted to positive energy, confidence and love and I naturally seem to push out the poisonous negative energy. That's a thrilling side benefit for me!!!

I just didn't think [hypnosis] worked, or would work on me. I didn't understand how close it was to meditation, and I hated meditation... So we were off to a bad start ! But positive thinking was appealing to me, so I decided to try it out.

I just needed to get my anxiety levels to drop down. My depression was getting worse again, and I wanted to find balance, because I could feel myself starting to become aggressive to my loved ones from the pain, and that was out of the question. I was also freaking out because I had no clue what I would be doing the next year... Or even what I wanted ! There is nothing more frightening than not even knowing your own mind. I help onto anything I could to find my path, which also, incidentally, made me hold onto the right things, and get the right result.

I am very bad at discipline, and I was amazed when I effortlessly didn't miss a single session on Periscope. The more I practised, the more I felt like my vision was clearing up. When I realised Grace Smith had taught me back something essential that I had forgotten : how to calm down! I felt so relieved, it was like a revelation. The calm, grounded energy I was looking for was mine at last. It gave me the possibility to look out for what I wanted, fearlessly, and as I was in the middle of an important decision-making time (aka. what do I do once I finish my bachelor's degree), I was in desperate need of this kind of support. I wanted to keep depression at bay to make sure my decision was mine and had nothing to do with my illness.


Now I'm off to a master's degree with a wonderful subject and teacher to guide me, I've created my own rescue group with a friend, I keep steadily trying to get my driving licence -everything I'm awfully bad at merged into a single activity- and I'm going to look for a summer job for the first time ever.
I'm not scared, I'm not sad, I'm not confused anymore. I can finally appreciate the present time, and look forward to living the future.
Thank you for teaching me, Grace Smith.

I love [hypnosis], trained in it and seeing clients.

I was struggling at my job wondering if I should start my own business. Secondly, once I did, I was met with crazy levels of self-doubt and avoidance. That’s when we did an over the phone session.

First, Watching [Grace Smith] and Bex on Periscope gave me the courage I needed consciously and subconsciously to step out on my own. Secondly, we did a session to cut cords with my parents’ form their abuse, depression, emotional disconnect, and sexual abuse...family curses...all to release my fear & self-doubt & got my power back. [Hypnosis} helped me feel very powerful. I feel powerful again every time I think about it. I have since watched and learned from everything [Grace Smith] teach on Grace Space and I absorb it like a sponge. For some reason, I am one of those who needs a lot of work and the issue persists, like cheek biting and bruxism. But every session, I feel better and better and stronger and stronger. I can’t ever give up knowing your tools are there to help me get up and [Grace Smith]’s success is there to remind me I can get up and I can do it. You are my virtual mentor and one day I will afford to take your Hypnosis training and I look forward to that day.

I had tried self hypnosis in the past based on books or articles I had read, but I struggled to do it on my own without guidance.

Depression and Anxiety [were the issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].

I was severely depressed, unemployed, and living in my parents’ basement.  My mental and physical health had deteriorated so much that I could hardly get out of bed.  On the days that I was able to muster up the strength to try and apply for jobs I was often overcome with anxiety attacks.  One day, I found a video on YouTube of Grace leading a guided hypnosis.  I couldn’t believe how free I felt after just a few minutes of hypnosis.  I quickly found the 21 day hypnosis sessions and started doing it each morning and evening.  I was able to listen to my subconscious! I slowly began [to believe] that it was possible to change my life.  I had no idea how, but didn’t concern myself with that. Instead, I stayed consistent each day focused on self-healing.  By the end of the sessions, I had completely transformed my thinking.  I no longer thought it might be possible to change my life, I had already changed it.  Each day, I completed small steps toward my future goals.  I scheduled my NCLEX, passed, applied for jobs, and was offered a position at the job I wanted most!  Within months of believing it was possible to change, I started my dream job, had a new car, and moved into an incredible house with breathtaking views.

I was a little skeptical about hypnosis because I had taken a group class with about 75 people in a room to stop a behavior.  I was so distracted by noises in room and had absolutely no effect, but when I saw Grace's post for free 3 minute hypnosis I decided to try it.

I had so many issues like overeating, but the absolutely most important for me was to get help with my deep depression, anxiety and negative thoughts.

Grace Smith literally saved my life!  I have been in such a deep depression for years and couldn't seem to stop my negative thoughts from constantly swirling around in my mind.  I felt hopeless and even after being on medications and having counseling for years, I was getting worse instead of getting better. I saw a post online advertising a free three minute hypnosis download by Grace Smith and I was very intrigued.  I downloaded the 3 minute and also the 10 minute free hypnosis and my life began to change. I signed up for the Grace Space trial and began to go through starting with the 4 steps to mental health. Grace was also holding daily Periscopes and some webinars, and I learned about neuropathways and how you could actually change your brain.  "I am safe, I am calm, I choose to relax," became my mantra.  Not only has my anxiety lifted tremendously, I have been able to help others who were suffering from anxiety and invited them to try Grace Space.  I am still a work in progress, but I am not sure where I would be if it were not for discovering Grace.  Grace is a true blessing and life-saver.

I didn't really have a strong preconceived notion of hypnosis. The word did, however, bring to mind an image of a somewhat spooky man with a pendulum saying "You are getting very sleepy..". So, without having given much thought to hypnosis, that image still resided in my mind.

I have experienced mild to moderate depression and anxiety at various times throughout my life. My depression seemed to be getting more persistent and deeper, and it was harder to find motivation. A few months ago, I made the decision to take steps to heal from past trauma. I realized I can no longer allow the past to hold me back.

My success story is very much a work in progress. I have been a Grace Space member for about a month. (Though I have benefited greatly from Grace's relaxation recordings for longer than that.) Ultimate Anxiety Relief has been amazingly helpful. I feel more calm, centered and confident. I'm finding it easier to keep up with beneficial habits, such as a regular yoga and meditation practice. I do still experience setbacks, but I am less likely to feel overwhelmed when this happens. I also made the decision to join Grace's Hypnotherapy Training Course. I'm so excited to learn and to see where this journey takes me!

I was actually googling guided meditations and happened upon [Grace Smith]!

Severe depression and anxiety brought on by a sudden estrangement of my son [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].

It is hard to write about it without crying and feeling all of the pain I was in.  I found Grace on a Youtube of Grace Smith TV. Several times a day for weeks and weeks I did the self-hypnosis, repeating the line "I am safe. I am calm. I choose to be here".  In reality I didn't want to be here and I had urges and thoughts of suicide. I was actually mad each morning that my eyes would open and I was still alive. I really wanted to die.  I would put on my headphones, listen to Grace's soothing voice and repeat her words.  It calmed me down and grounded me. Grace helped me through the pain and my suicidal thoughts.  She really saved my life.  She gave me something I could do to help myself and it really worked!!! It's been 2 years and I CHOOSE TO BE HERE!  Thanks Grace!!!

I was going through a divorce, which was difficult in a multitude of ways.

One of the things that made me realize I wasn't processing it fully and getting past it was the exercise we did where I was connected to him and pulling my energy back and sending the icky energy back his way. Our connection was far too robust in my mind. It helped specifically for me to detach and heal more.

I didn't know much about hypnosis other than it may make you relax and the stage hypnosis jokes I had heard.

I was unhappy because I didn't make choices based on my desires and my marriage was falling apart.

I found Grace Smith in 2012 from a Living Social deal when I was at a point in my life where I realized the success I had achieved was not leading me to joy in life.  My marriage was falling apart heading to divorce, I was experiencing sexual identity questioning, my work was being affected and I was beginning to realize I had buried my own wishes for the sake of what others expected or needed from me.  On the outside, life looked amazing; I had a great career that paid well in a fortune 100 company, I had a handsome and hardworking husband and we had just bought our car and lovely apartment together. On the inside, I was withering away and eventually all it took was one little fracture in my marriage to realize my foundation was built on what others wanted and I no longer wanted to live that way.  


Grace Smith guided me through this time in private sessions to uncover most of my own blocks and limitations, helped me uncover and heal the wounds of a childhood impacted by alcoholic physical abuse that caused many of my fears and blocks.  I hadn’t realized how much pain I had buried and how I had let that stop me from living because I was so busy trying to keep myself safe, small and limited.  [Grace Smith] led me to explore beyond that fear, to the real me, my real wishes and desires. It took commitment, on my part and hers, and we both showed up consistently.  I started with her as a crumbling person, in a job that paid well but left me empty, a marriage where I was crying for genuine connection and attention and a life that I didn’t even recognize anymore.  


With Grace Smith, I began my path to where I am now in 2016. My life began to transform immediately in the first few weeks to have much more awareness and inner strength which supported me in getting my work back on track.  I survived emotionally, mentally and financially through my divorce.  In private sessions and group hypnosis, I continued on to explore other areas of what allowed me to experience joy and began to really feel alive.  I journey around the world, sometimes alone! I realized the profound impact hypnosis had on my life experience, I knew it was to be a part of my own personal calling, so in 2014 I began my certification to train with Grace to become a Hypnotist myself.  Today, I absolutely love every day in my life. Four years after my journey began with Grace, at my own pace and time, I left my corporate job and began working as a Hypno Soul Coach using hypnosis for guiding and healing others and blending that with my passion of spiritual energy work with the Chakras.  I have healed so much trauma between my father, who was my childhood abuser, and have cleared the pain that was there to reveal a loving supportive father-daughter relationship which I am incredibly grateful for.


I continued to follow Grace on Periscope live broadcasts and use Grace Space where her hypnosis recordings helped me to expand even further and do my own broadcasts and provide amazing support whenever I need to access it.  I have a budding relationship with the rest of my family after many years of separation and pain.  I have an amazing partner in my life who supports me, encourages me and loves me the way I know I am meant to be loved and I now have the strength, capacity and courage to love him the way he needs.  I have explored so much of the world and continue to expand my experiences and my skills based on what makes me feel alive. Grace Smith was the first person to guide me in my journey to living life this amazingly and I am so excited for the many ways she is supporting the world.  I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing, supportive and loving guide, teacher and friend.  She has had a tremendous impact in my life and I’m grateful to witness her love and amazing skills being shared with the world!

Addiction, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Fear [were issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I survived a very violent home invasion sexual assault by a masked man years ago. The events of that day changed my brain. I suddenly lived in constant fear and trusted no one. I developed a substance abuse problem as I tried to escape my fear and an eating disorder. My perspective on the world had completely shifted and I felt so stuck.
Six years ago, I finally made the decision to get clean and sober. Through recovery I began seeking out more ways to heal. Discovering Grace Smith's hypnotherapy was absolutely incredible for my healing journey! I started focusing on the PTSD since I still suffered an occasional flashback or flare up of fear. I began listening to a Grace Space hypno recording every single day. They were between 3-40 minutes. It became a very sacred part of my practice and I could feel the shifts in the way my brain was working. Her recordings were like next-level meditations. The benefits lasted beyond the recording itself and the changes in my neural pathways has had a lasting effect. I'm calmer, more centered, I have over 6 years of recovery with no cravings, and I haven't experienced a PTSD effect in months!
Today I have my dream jobs as a professional Singer and a Motivational Speaker! (www.blazebell.com www.blazeanderic.com) I'm a present and healthy wife and a Mom to 2 bright kids! Thanks in part to Grace Smith's work I am now able to help others heal in the ways that I have. I am eternally grateful!

“Working with Grace Smith has saved me thousands upon thousands of dollars.”

Amber Skye Noyes

I was surprised at how deeply relaxed I was on the very first session for trying something so new. Grace’s voice was incredibly calming and serene but she spoke with direction and purpose, I truly felt guided going to that place that I always avoided but which has all the answers—deep down with within myself!

After counting down backwards with me, She would ask me questions about what I was feeling or seeing within my body and I would answer. If at any time I was unsure I told her so, and she guided me back to a place that seemed clearer with answers. She was like a spiritual tour guide to this inner place that I seldom visit but was so familiar at the same time. I was really impressed by her intuitive sense of which way to guide me “Counting down” might sounds like some scary amusement ride, but there was no anxiety, it was all very peaceful, smooth, and relaxing. Everything from the room, any other problems from my day or other things on my mind melted away and I was able to really focus on discovering answers within myself.

Even with some of the tougher, long standing painful issues I was dealing with, it strangely isn’t scary to face them when you’re deep in hypnosis. It’s just all very calm and revealing. Sometimes I’ve even laughed along with Grace, during hypnosis when seeing the odd cause of something I didn’t expect. The best part was, is that I know that while Grace guided me, those answers came from Me, and were within me the whole time.

I was able to achieve full turnarounds on several skin related issues, I regained more confidence and peace with my voice (I had some pretty serious vocal hoarseness and tension I was holding there when singing and speaking) and I have shifted many negative thought patterns that were preventing me from being the best version of myself! I feel calmer, more peaceful and forgiving to myself and others.

There are so many areas of my life that hypnosis has helped in, physical, emotional and behavioral. I constantly find myself saying to others “oh you should try hypnosis for that!.” I started doing hypnosis when there seemed to be no other answer or thing to try, so “why not/ what do I have to lose,” but now it is usually my First go-to for help with almost any issue, big or small.

There are no tricks or gimmicks, nothing to believe or not believe. At the end of the session, she counts you up and when open your eyes you see the room differently. Afterwards I’ve often remembered every word of the session and other times it’s just a good fuzzy feeling. But I always feel lighter and like a purer, kinder, more amazing version of myself.

I have recommended Grace Smith to so many people. She can talk to anyone from any walk of life. She always has a smile on her face and when you start your session, the most serene voice you could ever imagine. I have told her things I’ve never told anyone; she makes you feel safe and there is never anything except pure understanding and light beaming from her. Grace’s intuitive gifts are what truly set her apart from not just other healers but other hypnotherapists; she can sense when there is more within you to explore, and that’s what I believe creates her profound, lasting results. Nothing she says ever feels scripted because she is so in the present moment with me that she can truly ask and guide perfectly tailored to my journey that day.

Life is Short. Why would you wait another second hiding behind a habit, a belief, dealing with a physical problem that was holding you back from smiling fully everyday, from feeling less pain and more confidence. Maybe you’ll try hypnocoaching as a last resort, after you have tried everything else and have nothing else to lose.

Working with her has saved me thousands upon thousands of dollars. I had bought so many products or other material items to cover up what really needed to be addressed and If I had just done hypnocoaching…well! I would have saved not only dollars but regained lost time not feeling like my best self in so many crucial areas or my everyday life. And you can’t put a price on that!

My advice? Dive right in and save yourself the time and money and create lasting change now. There’s not a better time than right now to be the best you. The process isn’t scary, it actually makes you feel peaceful and calmer. I am so glad I’ve discovered this amazing work and would recommend it to anyone.

“I had been skeptical about hypnosis but through Grace came to know how powerful and effective it is in uncovering limitations that were holding me back from living my best life. Working with Grace has transformed my relationship with my career, my skin, my self-worth and so much more. I’m always telling people: you should try hypnosis for that! and with Close Your Eyes, Get Free, now everyone can!”

I actually didn't give [hypnosis] much thought. I just called it body centered therapy, where you tune into your body for accessing unconscious hidden parts of yourself.

Did you only want stories in which Grace Smith was the catalyst for change? For me, hypnosis was the first step in accessing hidden trauma and pain that conventional psychotherapy could not reach.

Physical pain brought on by emotional trauma, tension held in my body.

It was 2001, I had just gotten out of a divorce of an arranged marriage of one year and a half. The emotional trauma was immense, but I had nothing to say as I lay listlessly in the therapist’s chair. I couldn't feel anything besides for physical pain choking me and pressing down on me. I felt I was laying beneath a tree trunk that had fallen on top of me. With a help of a therapist who I had gone to for a Chinese form of accu-pressure but was dabbling in hypnosis, I began to ask my body what it was trying to tell me, and in this way I began to face the emotional pain that I was holding in my body. Laying down closing my eyes, and tuning in to my body was the only way I had to access my deep emotional pain. If I had not learned to do this, but had relied on psychologists, and medication, I shudder to think of where I would be today. Accessing my unconscious in this way opened me up to experience all of who I am in a way that has filled me with so much joy and love, I could never have imagined before.

[I thought hypnosis] was mind control.

Emotional ups and downs, needing to feel more confident in myself, being happy again. I wanted to fix these because it did not feel like I was living my life. I felt like I was just on autopilot.

My name is Lea and I was searching for a way that was quicker at changing my emotions and making me feel better. I was using positive affirmations and working to keep my thoughts positive. I had heard of hypnosis before and had the same belief that most of the world has, that [hypnosis] is mind control. Really I was just uninformed about what hypnosis really is which as Grace Smith says which I agree, “Hypnosis is meditation with a goal”. I liken it to deep relaxation with the ability to change areas of your life that are not for your highest and best good. There is no magic or mind control going on. I kept an open mind and I listened to some of Grace Smith’s videos and periscopes and felt a difference immediately. I was not quite sure why this was but when Grace Smith posted on Facebook she was having a school for hypnotherapy, I knew I had to enroll. I have only been doing hypnosis for a short time but, I absolutely love the way I feel every day! When I have anxiety and worry about doing well in this class, the quiz taking, getting my assignments done on time and keeping up with everything else in my life, family, work, etc. I listen to a hypnosis recording and within minutes I am calmer and more relaxed. My brain is not going 100 MPH with everything I need to get done. I feel more able to prioritize my tasks to be the most effective. I have noticed that I am generally calmer and relaxed throughout the day with as I am doing hypnosis daily. I love [hypnosis] and wish I would have known about it sooner.

I didn't know what to believe. I had a strong meditation practice so I knew the mind was powerful. I was open to the [hypnosis] experience.

Although I have worked with Grace Smith, the success story I want to share is of my 11 year old daughter Emma. She has anxiety and pulls her eyelashes. We wanted to fix it because it was causing her more anxiety and low confidence.

In 2015, my 11 year old daughter Emma's eyelash pulling was at its worst. She had no eyelashes left and she was getting small sores on her eyelids from picking at the tiny eyelashes that were trying to grow in. The eyelash pulling had become an even bigger problem than the esthetic one - she was now feeling worse and worse every time she pulled an eyelash. She continuously told us how she 'couldn't stop' and that she was 'dumb' and 'not normal.' I asked Grace [Smith] if she could work with Emma on her self-esteem around pulling her eyelashes and maybe even that habit itself. When Grace Smith called me, she spoke to me and asked me a few questions including my goal for the session. My goal was simply to free Emma from the burden of how picking her eyelashes made her feel. I wasn't concerned with the habit itself but more with how badly it made her feel. Then Grace [Smith] spoke to Emma and asked her a few questions including what Emma would consider a successful treatment. Emma responded by saying that if she went from pulling 5-10 eyelashes per day to pulling that many per week she would consider that a success. Grace [Smith] and Emma had their hypnosis session and Emma was instructed to listen to the recording as often as possible. Within 24 hours Emma started noticing that she wasn't picking as many eyelashes! I also noticed that when she did pick one she didn't seem to feel so bad - and she just picked one! She usually would pick one, feel bad and pick more and more. But she would pick just one! She continued to listen to the recording and see impressive results! Now 6 months later she has some full eyelashes back and more are growing but most importantly her habit doesn't affect how she feels about herself! She is happy and carefree again and not focused on how many eyelashes she has or doesn't have! It is truly amazing! I can't possibly thank Grace enough for giving Emma her carefree childhood freedom back!

“Now I have over 1000 followers on Periscope and enjoy scoping regularly. I even took up a leadership role as part of Global Meditation Scope, a Periscope event.”

Before finding Grace Smith, I had had limited exposure to hypnosis. I knew that hypnosis could be used to deal with things like getting rid of phobias and bad habits, such as smoking. I also knew that it could be used to access past lives and even the time between incarnated lives.

I wanted to get over my fear of pressing the 'Start broadcasting' button on Periscope.

What a wonderful surprise it was to have Grace Smith as the host of the Periscope Summit Live in San Francisco in January of 2016. I had already been following Grace on Periscope and had been enjoying her hypno-scopes that she does weekday afternoons. They always help to bring my stress level down and allow me to experience peace and calmness.

I was in a very funny place at Summit Live. Let me explain...I had done many live broadcasts on Periscope in the past, but with a great deal of anxiety. Then I got busy with a personal project and stopped broadcasting. After this break from it, I could not bear the thought of hitting that 'Start broadcast' button. The fear and resistance I experienced were incredible.

I also had this ticket to Summit Live which I had bought when I was still scoping fairly regularly. The thought of even going to the summit caused me great anxiety. I really wanted to bail on the whole thing except that I had a voice in my head telling me to go—that it would ultimately be good for me to attend. So I did.

I was so fearful of broadcasting by now, that the thought of broadcasting some of the panels at the event where I didn't even have to be on camera, terrified me. Along came Grace Smith to the stage to charmingly welcome us all to the event and that was where my shift began. Grace did a group hypnosis with us where she used positive affirmations and visualizations so that we would feel empowered to hit that big, red 'Start broadcast' button.

After that session, I sensed into staring at that red button and pressing it I could tell that my anxiety had already gone down a great deal. Later that day, I was actually able to broadcast a panel. It was my first 'scope' in about 2 months. It was truly a healing experience for me. I then scoped several more panels.

The next day, I went up into my hotel room to prepare for another scope. This time I was going to be in front of the camera sharing my story of the fear I had experienced surrounding scoping again and how Grace Smith and hypnotherapy helped me to overcome it. As I stared at the 'Start broadcast' button, I was amazed to notice that my anxiety level was even less than the previous day. Grace had mentioned that the effects of hypnosis expand with time and I certainly did experience that.

Now I have over 1000 followers on Periscope and enjoy scoping regularly. I even took up a leadership role as part of Global Meditation Scope, a Periscope event. I was in charge of new or infrequent broadcasters who wanted to be official hosts of the event. I became their Peri-Godmother encouraging them to scope regularly and giving them my guidance and support to be successful on the app. I am also in the process of building a Periscope channel with other broadcasters contributing to it.

Am I glad I followed the guidance I received to get my buns to Summit Live? You betcha! Otherwise, I would not have had that hypnosis session with Grace Smith and may not have gotten back into broadcasting. And not only that...I likely would not be attending Grace Space Hypnotherapy School! Grace's simple group hypnotherapy session helped me get out of a major slump I was in and now I feel like I am fully on my 'path.'  Thanks Grace!

Fear of public speaking: I was asked to present information during a two day business seminar

As a regular periscope watcher, within a day of my being asked to prepare a presentation Grace Smith provided a hypnosis on public speaking - I joined Grace Space and followed up with the course there (not complete due to it not being there) I was able to complete the presentation which I know I would not have without the hypnosis.

I love [hypnosis], trained in it and seeing clients.

I was struggling at my job wondering if I should start my own business. Secondly, once I did, I was met with crazy levels of self-doubt and avoidance. That’s when we did an over the phone session.

First, Watching [Grace Smith] and Bex on Periscope gave me the courage I needed consciously and subconsciously to step out on my own. Secondly, we did a session to cut cords with my parents’ form their abuse, depression, emotional disconnect, and sexual abuse...family curses...all to release my fear & self-doubt & got my power back. [Hypnosis} helped me feel very powerful. I feel powerful again every time I think about it. I have since watched and learned from everything [Grace Smith] teach on Grace Space and I absorb it like a sponge. For some reason, I am one of those who needs a lot of work and the issue persists, like cheek biting and bruxism. But every session, I feel better and better and stronger and stronger. I can’t ever give up knowing your tools are there to help me get up and [Grace Smith]’s success is there to remind me I can get up and I can do it. You are my virtual mentor and one day I will afford to take your Hypnosis training and I look forward to that day.

“Grace Smith and hypnosis took away my fear and gave me the confidence to be the practicing doula I am today.”

Erica Stauffer

Read More
I had never experienced hypnosis but was open to it.

I was in the process of quitting my "day job" and pursuing my passion of being a doula and student midwife. I was scared that I didn't have enough experience to be successful and was afraid to market my business.

After being at a job for 14 years that wasn't rewarding to me, I found my passion in the form of birth. After the birth of my fourth child, I realized that helping mothers through childbirth was my calling and I immediately worked on doula certification with the intent to begin midwifery school once my doula practice had taken off the ground. I completed my doula certification and then became a bit frightened. I had done a few births but wasn't gaining the traction I needed. I knew that I needed to market myself online as well as in person (via birth fairs, visits to OBGYN offices and birth centers, as well as be a featured speaker in birth classes) but I found myself questioning if I had enough experience and knowledge to do this. I worried that I would be seen as a fraud or that clients would immediately turn me away when they saw that I had a minimal number of births under my belt. It was during my maternity leave of my 5th baby that I came across Grace Smith and she was offering a special to talk to her and record a 15-20 min hypnosis over the phone. I was open to the idea and so I set up an appointment. I was really nervous when it was time for my appointment but as soon as I heard [Grace Smith]’s voice, I felt at ease. She asked me several questions about my work, my children, my dream of becoming a successful doula and midwife, among other things. In the time we spoke, [Grace Smith] was able to perfectly summarize what my goal was which really had nothing to do with finances or money but rather that I wanted to help women through childbirth to feel as empowered and amazing as I had felt by trusting their bodies to birth a baby and to know that they could do it. I have always thought that if a woman can give birth, she can do anything and I wanted women to know the powerful being that they are. We then did the hypnosis and Grace Smith sent me a copy via email. After listening to [hypnosis recording] one time, my fear vanished. I'm not sure how or why, but I called a prenatal and postpartum chiropractor and scheduled a meeting to go over my doula services. I didn't question my experience any longer because Grace Smith made me realize that my experience as a mother of 5 was all that I needed and that my heart and maternal knowledge helped me to know and understand what pregnant mothers needed to birth their babies and to ease their labor pains and any fears. My website began to receive more views, I created a Facebook webpage, went to my first birth event where I had my own booth and met several new clients. Grace Smith and hypnosis took away my fear and gave me the confidence to be the practicing doula I am today. I am now a full time doula and began midwifery school 7 months ago and am on my way to realizing my dream. I absolutely know that hypnosis did this for me and have no doubt as to its influence. Thank you so much, Grace Smith. You have changed my life for the better.

I have had the privilege and honor to live and work all around the world and meet thousands of people…and can say with complete certainty and comfort that Grace Smith has a true gift. In the words of both myself and my partner who also participated in her hypnotherapy sessions, ‘She is an angel’.

Now true angels don’t necessarily make you feel great all of the time because they may be there to help you face certain fears or obstacles buried in the depths of your subconscious. However, through a combination of gentle guidance, relaxation, visualization, probing yet unthreatening questions, and confirmation that everything you are feeling and facing is ‘OK’ , Grace proved to me that she is special and has what it takes to help me face some fears which have been ‘keeping and slowing me down’ for a good portion of my life.

We met in Aruba while I was on a retreat where Grace was offering her sessions. Upon meeting her, it immediately became apparent that she has a gift. During our one hour together, she explained to me what would happen, and guided me every step of the way. I was concerned that I would forget the whole experience, however I remember pretty well everything – especially the most important points.

She enabled me to face my fears and sources of sadness – she instructed me through visualization how to release those fears and I felt lighter afterwards. I cried and not a little – and that was OK – no judgement at all from her. I also felt energized at points. In fact the session was really about living and feeling everything in an unfiltered way, talking about it with Grace, and letting it go.

Grace, I will always remember our session together, it was transformational, it was intense, and it has already changed my life for the better. I thank you from the bottom of my heart and look forward to our next session.

I have lived with anxiety and panic attacks associated with phobias and family issues for most of my life. I have found means of healing myself, but I looked to Grace Smith to provide even more tools to accomplish goals that I wasn’t able to on my own – more specifically, chronic nightmares and relationship issues with family members.

I’ve had several sessions with Grace Smith, and each one left me with a greater sense of calm and empowerment. The most remarkable result was the instant cessation of my chronic nightmares. I began to sleep better, helping me to function better during the day and improving my overall mood.

Not only would I recommend hypnosis to anyone struggling with similar issues to mine, I would recommend it to everyone. Hypnosis isn’t just for people with problems. It can also be a tool to improve work performance, strengthen personal relationships, and develop a deeper understanding of self. I use a lot of Grace Smith’s techniques in my personal meditation practice and with my own students.

Grace is an understanding, gentle, and compassionate hypnocoach who was sensitive to my personal needs and limits. I always felt in control during our sessions. She felt more like an assistant to my self-healing, which left me with an even strong belief that I have the power to change my circumstances for the better.”

“My increased confidence and feeling comfortable in my skin for the first time in as long as I could remember.”

I was unbiased. I had no real opinion. As a yoga teacher I had been using meditation for a few years so I knew there was something to [hypnosis], I just hadn't experienced it for myself.

I have had a few sessions for different challenges. Including: weight loss, self-acceptance, and abundance. They all actually stem from the same root: not feeling good enough, and that is something I definitely want to change.

I had a short session with Grace Smith once for building self-esteem, self-acceptance and self- love. The session itself was very relaxing and calming but I didn't feel any overwhelming change right away. It wasn't until about a week later when I shocked my husband by walking around completely naked in our bedroom, in daylight! It didn't even occur to me that I was doing it until he pointed out that I NEVER do that. I am usually quite timid about showing my body. I am typically always covered up. As soon as he pointed it out, I knew that this was the direct result of my hypnosis session with Grace Smith! Of course we didn't work specifically on being comfortable naked, but the work on loving myself in all my imperfect perfection resulted in My increased confidence and feeling comfortable in my skin for the first time in as long as I could remember. I had no fear or anxiety about being naked. It was amazingly liberating! And while I do not walk around outside naked, I know that being comfortable and confident to do so at home has given me so much confidence and self-acceptance outside my home and in the world! I still listen to that session once in a while to keep building my confidence.

I didn’t have too many thoughts [on hypnosis]. I went through 100 and 200 levels of psychology for nursing school. They didn’t touch too much on hypnotherapy. We didn’t know how life-transforming it could be for our patients. I discovered hypnotherapy for hypnobirthing. I thought hypnosis was some circus way to control people “magically”

Anxiety, fear, self esteem, being content/living in the now, physical pain, abundance blocks, self-sabatoging behaviors. I wanted to fix [these issues with hypnosis] because I, just like everybody else, deserves an abundant life free of paralyzing ego problems. Ever since having my son I am more driven than ever to grow.

I wanted to help with my anxiety so I listened to hypnobirthing while in was pregnant. That’s where it began.  I began participating in Grace’s group challenges. Then I realized it can help with EVERYTHING since the subconscious controls everything. I have helped cope with anxiety, depression, pain, chronic Lyme disease and co infections, and manage to bring in more abundance into my life. I am enrolled in Grace’s hypnotherapy program. I have been able to manifest many things into my life with the help of Grace and hypnosis to reprogram my mind.

I thought [hypnosis] was a scary concept because I've only seen hypnotists who hypnotize students to do silly acts at a school assembly in the auditorium. I thought they didn't have control over themselves because they said they couldn't remember any of the silly acts the hypnotist had them perform. So it scared me because I have panic and anxiety disorder and one of my irrational fears is to lose control over my own mind and body. So I stayed away from [hypnosis].

I have panic and anxiety disorder where I can have panic attacks at any given time and anxiety has consumed me to where I couldn't drive my own car, I couldn't go out at night, I avoided new situations because I would get anxious and I'd back out. As well as overcoming flying anxiety because I had never been on a plane before.

When I first found out I was going to Florida for Memorial day weekend and the airline tickets were bought, I freaked out full anxiety mode. I am 22 years old and I have panic and anxiety disorder and have had it since I was a baby. So then reason being anxious was because I had never been on a plane before. I was SO scared that I spent the month leading up to the trip researching everything I could about airplanes, travel anxiety, fear of flying, etc etc etc. I walked around work like a zombie because my mind was so engrossed with anxious thoughts of travel and flight. The day finally came and I was nervous like anyone would be, but when it was time to board the plane, I broke down in the ugliest bawling fit I had in many many years. I kept saying over and over again, "I can't! I just want to go home! I've never wanted to go home so badly in my life! I can't do this, I can't!" I heard children ask their mothers why that girl was crying and they said, "Oh, she's just worried about her seat, that's all. There's nothing to be afraid of." Knowing full well that it was just another irrational nervous traveller. But as soon as I was on the plane and we were taking off, I was relaxed, looking out the window and laughing in no time. I was amazed at how easy flying actually was and couldn't believe that 6.5% of the population suffered from Aviophobia, or fear of flying. That may not sound like a lot, but that's actually 20 million people worldwide! I've talked to many of my friends and family and they too said that they weren't keen on flying either. But I beat that statistic! I beat it and now I enjoy flying! It was because once I was on the plane, my boyfriend (whom was travelling with me and who had to practically drag me mid-panic attack to my seat) reminded me over and over to sit and "listen to those recordings you do." He was referring to the Grace Smith recordings for anxiety. So I sat back, closed that window shutter, held his hand and closed my eyes and got free and I enjoyed my mental freedom and after my 10 minute hypnosis sessions, which I did a couple times over to go even deeper into relaxation, I was having a wonderful time, realizing that being on a plane was super easy and smooth riding and kind of reminded me like being on a big bus. I was soon looking out the window taking pictures and loving my trip. Now I can't wait for my next plane ride and travel destination.

It was because once I was on the plane, my boyfriend (whom was travelling with me and who had to practically drag me mid-panic attack to my seat) reminded me over and over to sit and "listen to those recordings you do." He was referring to the Grace Smith recordings for anxiety. So I sat back, closed that window shutter, held his hand and closed my eyes and got free and I enjoyed my mental freedom and after my 10 minute hypnosis sessions, which I did a couple times over to go even deeper into relaxation, I was having a wonderful time, realizing that being on a plane was super easy and smooth riding and kind of reminded me like being on a big bus. I was soon looking out the window taking pictures and loving my trip. Now I can't wait for my next plane ride and travel destination.

I thought it would be really hard to be hypnotized, that [hypnosis] would probably not work for me.

I did not have one specific problem, but just an overall feeling of being stuck in life - like I could not get out of my own way and that there were lots of things I wanted to try, but was too afraid and stuck to actually do them.

I started the boot camp and within the first few days started to feel a shift. Every item that had been on my to-do list for months got done and I started playing guitar again and signed up for singing lessons - an item on my bucket list that I was TERRIFIED to try.

I had always struggled with my weight, and had been successful at losing 50+ lbs but was "parked" at about 20lbs over my goal. I KNEW it was mental, my relationship with food was NOT good and MORE than losing the 20lbs I wanted to resolve my relationship with food.
Also, I was living in NYC (it had always been a dream to live there) at the time and feeling depressed and lost. I didn't have a partner (I was in my early 30s), was dating all the wrong people, didn't have a job that I loved, and was seeking to be happy and satisfied with my life.
I had always wanted to try [hypnosis] but never followed through because I hadn't found someone I felt I would click with. I always believed in our minds being SO powerful (and still do) and thought that with the right person, or guide, hypnosis could be so POWERFUL (boy was I right)! I followed Erin Stutland on FB (this was in 5+ years ago) and she made mention of [Grace Smith]...I immediately went to the page and everything that I read totally resonated with me- so I immediately called!
I first met Grace Smith in Feb of 2014, and she CHANGED my LIFE. FOREVER. I really am so extremely BEYOND grateful to have met her, she, and our sessions and recordings, have gotten me through the TOUGHEST times over the last 4+ years.
My two biggest "issues" were weight/relationship with food and finding a purpose, path, partner.
I'll start with weight, and I won't lie- it's a challenge, because I met Grace with 30+ years of "cultivating" my unhealthy relationship with food. WE REALLY FOCUSED ON [MY UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD], VERSUS LOSING THE WEIGHT, BECAUSE I KNEW THAT THE WEIGHT WOULD DROP OFF ONCE THAT RELATIONSHIP WAS BETTER. I dropped 10+ lbs of the 15 I wanted to lose. I have maintained that weight loss since. My relationship with food is still strained at times, like any relationship ;), but I am constantly working on it, I listen to my recordings with Grace, and sometimes even jump on a session with her live (when I'm lucky) for a refresher...it's work, just like being in a human to human relationship!

As for my path, purpose, partner...whoa what a success story I have here! Since I started working with Grace I have moved back to Colorado and met and MARRIED the man of my dreams!! while I am now in a job that I KNOW is not my path, or my passion, working with Grace has SHOWN me how to KNOW that, and that, is priceless. I am able to clearly know that it's time for a change, and why, and this is something I was never bale to do before. I work in an environment where I feel obligated to do a lot of the things that I do, for many reasons, and my sessions with Grace have been so helpful in listening to ME and figuring out what is right for ME.

I am most recently participating in her "21 day abundance" challenge. having had one-on-one sessions with Grace for many years, and with my success stories, I of course, know how powerful she and hypnosis are...but participating in this group challenge has been incredible! The challenge is focused on abundance and each hypnosis is better than the last, really! I have already brought in over $500 of 'extra' cash into my life, and now my relationship with money is completely changing, for the positive (I already had a positive relationship with it, but Grace and this challenge has managed to make it even more positive!)

I have had dozens of sessions (lucky me!), from my weight loss focused ones all the way to full on panic attacks that her recordings have gotten me through...Grace has not only changed my life, but in many ways, SAVED it. I cannot wait to see (and experience) what is next for Grace and hypnosis going mainstream!

I had tried it with a therapist at a young age (around 14) but never really believed or was open to it. I had my doubts that I’d be able to open myself up to it all these years later, thinking I may always be “thinking”…when I found [Grace Smith], though, I decided to make a commitment and have an open mind. It took a few sessions and some work to do that but wow, did I change fast! I had a laundry list of things to work on and I must say- the changes in my life are crazy in a short two years ( I think it’s been two years)…. Where to begin.. 1. weight – I had always been overweight and had recently lost and maintained about a 50lb loss (about 4 years before starting to work with grace) I was 20 lbs away from my goal though and it seemed nothing I did got me there… 2. relationship- I wanted to find a meaningful and real relationship. I had never had any long term relationships before, they were always with this men that were never present, treated me badly or lied to me…there was always something that felt wrong 3. I wanted to find meaning in my life/career I will have to send minor details now but would be HAPPY to fill in with more if wanted!! 1. weight- I have never been this low, and am BEYOND thrilled with my results. I’m learning every day to LOVE my body…it’s work, and still is and probably will be…but I’m in a size 28 jean, 6 dress and feel great! 2. I’M ENGAGED to the LOVE OF MY LIFE! I feel I never would have been able to be in the type of relationship I’m in without the work I have done with Grace. We are open, honest and communicate constantly. It is all I have ever wanted out of a relationship…and more! 3. I just started as CEO of my family’s business…I have been working in different capacities at the company for almost 14 years now and last year moved back to Colorado from NYC for a temporary 2 months, I ended up extending, extending, extending…not only did I fall in love (and get engaged, last week!) but I ended up falling back in love with the project and realizing it is what I’m MEANT TO do! I started as CEO last week. Starting soon I will start CEO work with Grace!

I only knew hypnosis from movies , I imagined that you are going to make me fall asleep and control me or something. My family still has this idea; they get shocked when I tell them "I tried hypnosis" they were like " did you fall asleep? These things are not popular here in middle east.

We have lots of exams here in UAE , and the time I heard Grace scope was just the day before my math final exam, I had troubles with anxiety and focus 🙂

Every time I tried hypnosis, I felt so relaxed and calm during my studying sessions when I actually was freaking out and sometimes, I couldn't solve some questions in my book , I had lots of things left to study and no time, tt was midnight clock was ticking, I just couldn't move forward which made the situation worse! But suddenly I saw the notification that Grace is scoping. I said to myself lets try! I looked to this scope as my last chance to feel better before my exams, I felt so lucky because Grace played a recording "which is available now in Grace in your pocket App " It was a delightful trip to increase focus, productivity .. I could already feel my confidence, focus, [sense of] calmness increase before even reaching the middle of the recording! I was in a wonderful state when I got back to my books, just after the hypnoscope I could do all the problems that I couldn't do very very easily! Without even thinking, my mind was very clear, I felt secure and in peace. The next day in the classroom I was confident when solving questions and I remembered the recording in the exam and felt so focused. The exam went smoothly and guess what ? I got 100. 🙂 Alhamdulilah

I wanted to help become more focused on my professional goals and taking them from idea to successful products and services. I tried hypnosis before and it didn’t work. Going into my first session with Grace I was skeptical, expecting a simple meditation session and not much else. It was refreshing to hear that Grace was just as skeptical before she tried it as I was.

Grace is an everyday woman with an extraordinary talent. Her soothing voice and energy are just gorgeous. She explained the process in a way that made sense, even for skeptics like me. Drawing from her own experience and expertise, she allows me to relax, let go and allow my inner power to shine through. She also gave me easy-to-follow, highly effective techniques to help keep me focus and strong.

I believe that hypnosis is a powerful technique that can help you with both physical and emotional barriers. I feel a lot more confident and positive about my abilities and talents; mainly because I now understand that there is no difference between the “me” that I want to become and the “me” of today. I will continue to practice hypnosis for years to come!

Even the most skeptical of readers will find in this book important information that will serve them well in their quest to changing negative habits and behaviors. Grace’s book is a significant tool for two main reasons: first, it debunks a lot of the popular myths around hypnosis and second, it helps you learn how to practice self-hypnosis as an empowerment and healing tool. It will help you achieve freedom indeed.

Hypnosis has been a long-held interest. I was 13 when I read my first book entitled "A Harley Street Hypnotist." I knew it was a powerful tool but never experienced it until I was 71, which was [Grace Smith’s] Hypnotherapy Experiment. From then on, I knew it was the answer to many problems during my life, and I have been successful in finding self-esteem and confidence in abundance ever since.

The Wandering Mind and Daydreaming [were issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].

The session was not only beautiful it was above all a huge success and I have had no problems since. I still have my recording.

I had no idea what hypnosis was. I meditated on a regular basis though, and was familiar with the concept, and workings, of the subconscious mind, so hypnosis made perfect sense as a way to try to access that part of the mind in a more direct way

I have a terrible habit of getting really excited about something, starting it 100% full on, then getting overwhelmed (which I convince myself is boredom or disinterest) and quitting.

I had started weight lifting, and was loving it, and I really wanted to improve and excel. But I noticed I began to have a common thought pattern where I was beginning to come up with reasons why continuing wasn't worth the time. "Because I would never get anywhere with it, because I wasn't going to be strong enough, because I would probably never be able to learn the technique anyway, because I should be doing other things with my time" and so on and so on. I'm famous for this pattern. I always lose that desire to follow through, and then I move onto something new, and just repeat the process. In my hypnosis session with Grace, she very quickly identified the source of this pattern (as did I once she began asking "breakthrough" questions) as a desire to have some sort of connection with my father, who I had not had a relationship with, but desperately (although subconsciously) just wanted to connect with. He is someone who lives his life with this exact pattern of behavior, even down to starting, and abandoning, a family. It really was a revelation for me, and Grace gave me the mantra, "I finish what I start, I keep my word, I am so rebellious" within my hypnosis, which I listened to each day, and repeated the mantra each time I walked up to the bar, or started to learn any new lift.  And for the first time I can remember, I have completely followed through with something, and more than that, I have excelled, and even competed.  I used hypnosis to get me through the competition process as well, which is a whole other success story because not only did it involve performing in front of a crowd of people (without fainting), but it involved wearing shorts...which is something I have been unable to do, without having an all out panic attack, for over 20 years 🙂

My thoughts on hypnosis were that it's a lot of weird things we needed to go through, but I knew that a friend of my had many results to heal her wrong eating habits. I thought that if it would help her with that it might help me too after I tried everything under the sun already.

I could not focus on what I wanted to do with my life. We moved to Canada from the Netherland in 2010 and after becoming adjusted here I wanted to start a home-based business for myself that wasn't MLM. Now 7 years later, I went through starting up two online businesses, and they both did not come off the ground. After that, I started an expensive course to become a life coach, but this course only made me feel worse about myself, and I was feeling like a complete failure. I never finished this course and started telling myself that I would always stay small and I better start getting used to that. It did not feel good to me because deep down I know I am made for bigger things in this life and now I was turning 40 I wanted to deal with this failure feeling for ones and for all.

I am still working on this success story as I started working with Sara and feel I can start up a business from home and work towards that for spring 2018 and join your school to become a Grace Smith certified  Hypnotherapist. It feels I finally found something I am able to work towards and know where I'm going. My goal is to have my success story ready before I finished the school.

I had tried [hypnosis] before for test anxiety and had success.
General feelings of unhappiness/knowing I was meant for more but not sure what/lots of procrastination [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].
Success is such an understatement! Hypnosis with Grace literally UNLOCKED MY LIFE - and I'm not even halfway through! In one of our phone sessions, we were focusing on my inability to focus and follow through on a task (studying mostly but also little things like laundry). I had a huge to-do list but felt paralyzed and as a result nothing was getting done. We talked a lot about this and then jumped into a hypnosis which started off general enough and then unexpectedly plunged me into a past life. It was surreal. I looked around me and could see the terrain as clear as day. I could see and recognize the faces around me, though they were not the faces of the people in my current life. I could smell the smells of the area I was in, I could reach down and touch my "clothing" and really feel what it felt like. It was animal furs, head to toe, which I have never worn and yet could really feel them. Grace walked me through a specific scenario and ultimately allowed me to travel to heaven - or my life between lives - where I was able to ask specific questions of some sort of council. There just isn't time or space here to express what the experience was like and whether you believe in past lives or not (or whether it was a past life or perhaps my subconscious' way of opening up to me) isn't what's important. The profound and instantaneous change in my life is what is important. Things that had plagued me for years (lifetimes even) were undone. My life opened up and possibilities became clear. One session literally changed the course of my life. I feel different on a cellular level. My mind and my heart are expanded. It leaves me thirsting for more, loving me, loving my life more and yet excited for expansion and what's to come.
From her second survey:
Before I started working with Grace, I was a little skeptical about hypnosis - and also nervous. It seemed like it could be a little dangerous giving someone access to the deepest recesses of my mind.
I was suffering from some pretty severe social anxiety (and to a lesser extent, driving anxiety). If we were invited to get together with friends (even friends I had enjoyed spending time with on other occasions), I would feel so much stress about going that I would often make myself sick. My stomach would hurt, I would feel nauseous and my heart would race just at the thought of going. And it didn't end there. If I did end up getting together with friends, afterward I would obsess endlessly about the event. Did I say or do something stupid? Did so-and-so like me/not like me? Did I embarrass myself/my husband/my kids? It was a vicious cycle. Enter the Grace Space Anxiety Challenge. I stuck with the challenge every single day for 21 days and what an amazing difference. Not only did I feel incrementally better after each session, but I found myself naturally applying the things I learned throughout the day. I was able to calm myself down when I started to get that same anxious feeling and actually start to not only look forward to getting together with friends, but enjoy myself during our time together and now worry endlessly for days after about what people thought of me. The relief from this level of stress is palpable! I am incredibly thankful for the changes I was able to make (and the processes I can continue to use) thanks to hypnosis.

I didn't have many thoughts about [hypnosis]. It did seem like something strange and woo woo. Nothing that I thought would help me.

My anxiety. I can remember being 4 or 5 and going to the movies with my grandmother weekly, and I can remember being so worried that we were in the wrong theater and worrying about what was going to happen if the wrong movie began to play. I can remember times when I was too paralyzed to answer a knock at the door, times I would have to turn the ringer off on my phone because hearing it would cause a panic attack, and times even hearing the mail drop into the mailbox would make me so anxious I would need to lay down.

A little over a year ago I discovered Grace Smith through Bex from Bexlife. I've watched most of her videos and periscopes. It has been life changing. I joined Grace Space as soon as it opened and haven't looked back. I can honestly say the last 6 months have been the best of my life. I listen to hypnosis daily, and almost every night I listen to the one hour full-length anxiety relief session. What have I gotten out of it? I sleep through the night for the first time in my life. I no longer wake in the middle of the night in a panic attack. I can answer the phone, the door, and am happy to get my mail. I haven't had a panic attack in as long as I can remember. Work no longer makes my stomach hurt, nor does having hard conversations with people. Hypnosis did for me what therapy, medication, exercise, and a whole plethora of "natural" remedies couldn't. It gave me peace for the first time. I feel free.

I was skeptical and thought there is no way [hypnosis] can work but I tried it [hypnosis] any way

I want to fix panic attacks and negativity in my life. I decided to change because I was frustrated and scared of calling the ambulance every couple of days.

I've been having panic attacks since I can remember. I think it was the death of my grandmother that triggered it. The thing is, I had no idea what panic attacks were until about 4 years ago when I felt like I was dying. My husband called the ambulance and they told me what it was. After that I kept on having these episodes but I did not know how to control it. So I decided to tell my doctor and he suggested to do meditation. I searched on Youtube and the first thing that pop out was Bexlife. I started with her for a couple of days then on one of her videos she suggested hypnosis. I tried it and I was hooked. After that, I also sign up for Grace Notes and they are great and have helped me a lot. It reminds me that I'm human and it is ok to express my feelings and also to be here in the present. It's been 9 months since I started doing meditation and hypnosis. I'm not going to lie, at first it was very difficult because all of my past and my negativity came to light but I have learned to manage my emotions and feelings. I also can control my panic attacks by doing hypnosis and talking myself out of them.

[I thought hypnosis] was mind control.

Emotional ups and downs, needing to feel more confident in myself, being happy again. I wanted to fix these because it did not feel like I was living my life. I felt like I was just on autopilot.

My name is Lea and I was searching for a way that was quicker at changing my emotions and making me feel better. I was using positive affirmations and working to keep my thoughts positive. I had heard of hypnosis before and had the same belief that most of the world has, that [hypnosis] is mind control. Really I was just uninformed about what hypnosis really is which as Grace Smith says which I agree, “Hypnosis is meditation with a goal”. I liken it to deep relaxation with the ability to change areas of your life that are not for your highest and best good. There is no magic or mind control going on. I kept an open mind and I listened to some of Grace Smith’s videos and periscopes and felt a difference immediately. I was not quite sure why this was but when Grace Smith posted on Facebook she was having a school for hypnotherapy, I knew I had to enroll. I have only been doing hypnosis for a short time but, I absolutely love the way I feel every day! When I have anxiety and worry about doing well in this class, the quiz taking, getting my assignments done on time and keeping up with everything else in my life, family, work, etc. I listen to a hypnosis recording and within minutes I am calmer and more relaxed. My brain is not going 100 MPH with everything I need to get done. I feel more able to prioritize my tasks to be the most effective. I have noticed that I am generally calmer and relaxed throughout the day with as I am doing hypnosis daily. I love [hypnosis] and wish I would have known about it sooner.

I thought you would be "put under" and be under the control of the therapist....Or totally hokey and wouldn't work at all.

Anxiety and anger/mood swings [were the issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].
I do not like the the way I "behave", and it makes me feel awful for myself and those around me.

I am a stay-at-home mom in my late forties.  I had one 90 minute breakthrough session with Grace Smith to deal with some increasing anxiety.  I had no prior experience with hypnotherapy. Five years ago, I attended traditional psychotherapy for a year.  The sessions felt good while I was there, but I was seeing no lasting results.

Grace was very forthcoming and honest about what hypnotherapy would and would not do.  I wasn't to expect overnight 100% resolution to my issues. It would probably take several days to see any reduction in my symptoms.

The day after my session, I was in a situation that would instantly trigger a medium amount of anxiety.  I normally feel a sharp energy right in my heart, with a quickened heart and breath rate. I felt absolutely nothing in my heart, no quickness of breath. It was unbelievable.  It didn't even realize the extent I had been living with anxiety until it wasn't there.  I actually tried to recreate the feeling because the absence of my anxiety felt so strange.  It was a breakthrough moment that I needed help, and hypnotherapy could help me.

I also noticed I wasn't as reactive when things didn't go as planned with my husband and teenagers.  We had a minor incident that I normally would have exploded. I had a very calm reaction with no internal anxiety, and I completely moved on.  My reaction was so far from my norm, that my family thought, wow, she is really really upset, and we better steer clear. The changes I was experiencing where quick, drastic, and noticeable to everyone around.

Although I still have some anxiety, the intensity and frequency are dramatically reduced.  With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.

I tried the Four steps to mental freedom just as a curiosity to what this hypnosis really does "to me". I think what happened is that this time I really wanted to be more healthy and stop this bad habit entirely. Just do it, for real this time. I didn’t smoke much, just sometimes, but that is more than zero  :). Maybe this is why i got the Mail from Grace Smith that day; the universe wanted have me to have the best chance...The hypnosis helped me instantly and the support of Grace Smith was very important in this. I remember that she mentioned me in the next video and that was even more motivating; I never wanted to disappoint her or  myself again. Health is the most important thing anyone can have! I still struggle with shutting my mind off when listening to a hypnosis recording, but now I believe that hypnosis works and helps a lot of people. Thank You!

“One benefit I didn't anticipate, but one that I cherish, is that the self-compassion is expanding my awareness of others and leading me to be more compassionate in my dealing with others and with my environment.”

I was dubious, but hopeful [about hypnosis]. I have meditated for years and I know the benefits of meditation. I am also a very spiritual person, so I was hopeful that I could relax and experience something new.

First, I wanted to stop eating JUNK FOOD. I am healthy, fit and knew that that was not something I wanted in my body, but I seem to have no control over the cravings. Second, I wanted to work on de-stressing and having fears about getting sick. I have a high stress job that I enjoy, but I know that the stress was affecting other areas of my life and I didn't like it. Because we lost a child to cancer, I was, for the first time, afraid of becoming sick. Third, as I get ready to retire and pursue artistic endeavors as part of my retirement, I wanted to learn to let go of my "get it done now" attitude so that the creative and compassionate side of me would open up and flourish.

Goal 1--dropping junk food. Well, this has been an issue for me FOREVER. After the first session with Grace, I began to see my craving thought process interrupted. I wouldn't just jump into a box of cookies. Instead I would think about what was triggering that craving, and perhaps meditate through it. Now the first week, I did have some sweets, but not as many and only one day. That's a success right there! I listened to our session several times during the week---sometimes when I was out on a run. That was a great combination---healthy activity supported by healthy choices. The second session Grace [Smith] created an element of aversion---saying that junk food was poison and helping me to imagine how I needed real food from the earth to nourish my active and stressed body. I have a stubborn little girl streak and this little girl was part of the narrative of my hypnosis. I was going to help myself by helping my stubborn little girl show herself (and myself) self-compassion by eating yummy, whole foods and throwing away the junk food. In my hypnosis, I cleaned out all the junk food in my house. When I got home that evening---I cleared out all my junk food!!! Since that second session, I haven't had any junk food. It's not that I haven't had cravings--instead, I make a loving healthy choice for myself. All this great behavior is happening while at work, I am working 15 hour days---very busy stressful days. But by nourishing my body well---I am managing the stress and we hadn't even done the stress hypnosis yet!!! When we focused on de-stressing, I was then able to destress on command based on a suggestion made during a session. So despite crazy crazy work hours, I was happy, not overly tired and not eating junk food, which used to be my comfort food!! I listen to the sessions that Grace [Smith] tapes for me and I hear new things every time I listen, so it doesn't feel repetitive. We just started goal 3--opening up my channel of creativity. But already, I am seeing common things differently--clouds are not just clouds. The colors of flowers seem to vibrate. And I am thinking about how I want my first days of art in retirement to be--being still, listening and observing. Sitting with my tools--appreciating what I can do with them. Looking quietly at things that inspire me. Observing normal things like cars going by and seeing the energy  in them and allowing myself to imagine how I can become a part of those items--and what it feels like. Suspending my highly active rational brain so that my creative energy flows from me and into me. I have more sessions left and I cannot wait to see how all these practices inter-relate and intertwine.  One benefit I didn't anticipate, but one that I cherish, is that the self-compassion is expanding my awareness of others and leading me to be more compassionate in my dealing with others and with my environment. I try to smile at everyone--and I am finding that I am attracted to positive energy, confidence and love and I naturally seem to push out the poisonous negative energy. That's a thrilling side benefit for me!!!

[Before working with you, I thought hypnosis would] be an effective way of using the mind to reinvent the way our thoughts get programmed in as we go about life experiences.

I have had issues with self-love and seizures from head injuries. I have really wanted to gain a greater sense of self-worth and not have the terrible seizures that interfere with living or more happy life.

I have had several head injuries, those have caused me to have seizures, depression and anxiety. I've also had some rough experiences over the years, but I must say I've learned a lot. By means of having the tough life experiences, I have been gifted with some great wisdom, some priceless understandings of people, places, and things. I really gained a lot of help with my perception of things with Grace sharing or making an emphasis on how important it is to give as much as possible. What you give is what you get. So with doing more to help serve others, I've been granted access to some priceless feelings of peace, happiness, and Love. I struggled a bit with jealousy previously, but her offering the awesome advice about that is priceless! That to instead of feel envy or compare, just hope for that person to be blessed with even more good! Hope for them to gain even more awesome, happy, lovely good things. I have found that to be so very helpful to insert into my thinking and help with really relieving a great deal of stress or bad feeling. Thank you so much! I've been able to really learn a great deal, and I hope to share more with others things I've learned, be a light in the lives of others. I'm excited to have my book keep being a great help to many, amongst their learning journey in Life. Thank you 🙂

“I kept asking the universe for peace and God's grace - "by the grace of God go I"...  There came a day when I felt like "this isn't living, it isn't fun" and that day I cried and prayed.

[My thoughts on hypnosis were] hopeful. I believe that a lot of our issues and problems originate from the subconscious beliefs and attitudes handed down to us by our parents in our early years of life and that this programming affects our perceptions and how we interpret, react and deal with the experiences we call into our lives and indeed, what we call into our lives is the direct result of that early programming which is much stronger than simply saying, I don't believe that or this isn't my truth. Our lives have been built on these foundations whether we think we believe it or not...  I do believe though, that it is possible to reprogram our subconscious thoughts, but I didn't know how to go about it, how long it would take to ensure success and especially, what program would affect positive change. I mean, I'm sure my parents were doing and saying what they thought was best for my well-being and yet it is very obvious to me how their beliefs have impacted on my self worth and success. So whilst I was hopeful, I was also very conscious that what I replace the old programming with had to be right.

Anxiety [was the first issue I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I believe that our health issues are the direct result of our emotional experiences. I first developed asthma and the breathlessness triggers of anxiety which in turn escalates the asthma and [causes] more anxiety. Life was becoming difficult and unenjoyable and an incident with my daughter escalated these effects to panic responses. In order to begin healing, I needed to get control over the anxiety. [Secondly, I wanted to address] abundance. Asthma is related to self-worth and grief and the incident with my daughter stripped me of all worth. I raised my children on my own and having felt so little self-esteem as a young adult myself, I had done so much work on self-improvement, had studied early childhood and was always so conscious of what I said to my kids, how I responded to them, what I was teaching them - my kids are everything to me and I lived for them. I'm not talking "helicopter parenting" - I am talking about teaching them assertive behaviour and considering the effects of their life choices, teaching them about compassion and kindness and communication and love. We didn't have a lot when they were growing up and I usually put my needs last in order for them to have what other kids had. I really thought I was a great mother - this was the one thing that I got absolutely right. So when my adult daughters, both now with children of their own, suddenly turned on me; I was devastated. 3 days earlier I was the best mother in the world. My eldest said things that had never happened and she blocked me out of her life for 9 months. My youngest blocked me for 3 weeks and then came back because she needed money. When my eldest did agree to talk with me, she again said things that hadn't happened and if I tried to say otherwise she would scream and threaten to cut me out again. During this time, my heart broke and I felt absolute despair (much worse than grief) but both emotions affect the lungs. Everything that I had worked on becoming as a person, everything that I believed about myself, all my self-worth and self-esteem was stripped away and I could feel my life slipping away. I was dying, being smothered, breathing was something I had to force myself to do and the asthma and growing anxiety were making it harder. I still don't understand what happened but I can see a few of my failures - in putting myself last all the time, I taught them that I don't matter as much as they do; in helping them (because I never wanted their lives to be as hard as mine had been), they saw it as buying their love because I had made their childhoods hard; by not telling them why I had left their father, he had room to tell them lies; because I was so busy I had to choose my battles so it wouldn't be at their expense, they saw it as me bowing out because I must have been wrong; and now if I try to share how hard it was to raise kids alone, they say "plenty of other people do it" and they don't get that the other people they are talking about have financial help from their "ex" where I didn't - but that's just another lie their father tells them. When you have spent a lifetime of deliberately choosing not to engage in mudslinging, how do you come back from that. Their father is a bully, they had begun spending a lot of time with him and overnight my children became bullies. I found it hard to deal with. I can't take anxiety drugs and don't want to. Often the symptoms would escalate in places where it wasn't convenient or possible to stop and meditate and the 20+ years of self-development had crumbled after the incident with my daughter. So hypnosis seemed like my last hope to hang on to life, a miracle that could enable me to begin healing and it offered the possibility of a lifelong solution. I had been looking around locally but the programs offered where quit smoking and weight loss. None of them felt right. I kept asking the universe for peace and God's grace - "by the grace of God go I"...  There came a day when I felt like "this isn't living, it isn't fun" and that day I cried and prayed. I said I didn't want to live like this, take me or send me the help that I need. The next day, God sent me grace - literally! I opened facebook and right at the top of my feed was Grace Smith-Feitosa offering a FREE ANXIETY hypnosis challenge! I had never seen Grace's previous works, or come across anything about hypnosis on facebook and yet here she was, with a free challenge perfectly designed for the immediate help I needed to enable me with enough healing to begin working on healing all of me. This could not be a coincidence! With hope, I clicked on her first video and Grace sprang to life - with all her inner beauty and sincerity and contagious enthusiasm. I felt inspired and overwhelmed. I had prayed for God's "Grace" and here she was! In that moment I felt so grateful and loved and that was the beginning of my journey and my introduction to hypnosis.

One of the biggest causes of my health problems has been that I see the world through 'rose coloured glasses' because I get so hurt by the things that people do and say and no matter how many times I get hurt, no matter how many lessons I have learned, I am never prepared for the next one. I feel things so deeply. I give my all. I believe and have passion. Although I know how strong I am because of the challenges I have had to overcome throughout my life, sometimes I feel so tired and feel that I really am "too soft" for this world. I can literally feel the hurt that others feel or how something affects someone. My body is also very affected by my emotional state and it aligns with what I am feeling. That means that western medicine doesn't always work well for me because I need to heal the cause of my emotional state before the symptoms will disappear. This is why hypnosis works so well. It isn't a quick fix and I know that I have work still to do but by healing the thoughts that created the symptoms, I know it is possible. My first challenge was anxiety. Anxiety and asthma go hand in hand. The worse the asthma is, the worse the anxiety is, the harder it is to breathe at all. As you can imagine, it was a vicious circle. I am still not completely healed from anxiety because I still have asthma but the challenge stopped me from panicking when it occurred and that was enough to allow me to begin to heal some of the many misaligned thoughts that eventually resulted in asthma. Some of these are low self-worth, feeling less than, feeling like you can't be yourself, you must be perfect in order to be loved, feeling you lack something, feeling deprived, feeling smothered and stifled... Some of these thoughts are addressed in the abundance challenge and yes, I am manifesting money from known and unknown sources, but my ultimate goal is to manifest good health so that I can live an enjoyable life. Other thoughts that impact health will be addressed in various other challenges. I have been reluctant to admit that I also developed nodules on my lungs and esophagus and the lung specialist is waiting to see if it will become lung cancer. Lungs are related to grief and of course, nodules and cancer are basically from unexpressed feelings, regret, unworthiness, bubbling up or eating away at you or both. I am in my early 50's and I refuse to let this become my story. I know that my body is capable of healing itself. For me, that means healing the thoughts that created these symptoms. I have spent years in self-development, trying to become my best version, I have studied and grown from the teachings of Deepak Chopra, Louise Hays, Wayne Dyer, Maryanne Williamson, Ekhart Tollie, Abraham, Doreen Virtue, Bruce Lipton, Dr Emoti, Stephen Hawkins and the celebrity list goes on and on... Honestly, I would go so far as to say that I probably have one of the largest book libraries of self help, spiritual leaders, quantum science, healers and innovators covering every topic known to man that many of you have ever seen! And they are all fantastic and complement each other and make perfect sense but for me, all of my years of study was still stripped away in an instant, by the only 2 people on earth that could ever do that - my children! The child of my body, my kiss from God.... I have done the groundwork. This time I need permanent healing. The only way I can see to do that is to reprogram my programming, to overwrite that early "software" with new, sustainable scripts. I know that hypnosis is the way to do that because from that first challenge, even when I have been in circumstances that have made me anxious, I have never again wished for death to take me. I am healing. I am on a healing journey and by the "Grace Smith-Feitosa" of God, go I.... Thank you Grace, my saving Grace. I love you, I'm taking baby steps but I am moving. I will always be eternally grateful to God and the universe for sending Grace to me and as I heal, I am excited to know that my true purpose is unfolding.

I didn't really see [hypnosis] as effective.

I have been looking for additional tools to cope with my general stress and anxiety, and to help me deal with a toxic relationship in my life. I am also looking to improve my health and I have a weight loss goal.

After listening to Grace's endlessly fascinating interview on Katie Dalebout's podcast, I listened to the three-minute stress relief hypnosis later that day and was awed by how calm I felt. Before picking up my younger children that day, I parked my car and listened to the 10 minute relaxation recording. I felt amazingly calm, and handled my chaotic afternoon with four kids much more peacefully than usual. Later that evening, my husband tried to dredge up an old argument, and instead of taking the bait, I found myself shifting gears and responding with complete calm and ease. It wasn't until the next day, when I listened to the 10 minute relaxation recording again, that I realized there was a part about "angry words being cleaned away". It had worked perfectly for me! On a similar note, before listening to the recording for a second time, I wrote in my journal, mentioning that the only word that I could use to describe my feeling was "clean". Again, I didn't realize until later that the word "clean" was actually part of the hypnosis. I became a member later that day and embarked on the Weight Loss Intensive. I also continue to listen to the relaxation recordings every day. I am calmer, happier, and more centered than I can ever remember feeling before. I feel incredibly light, positive, and at peace. I feel so happy knowing I have these recordings to turn to every day, when I feel a dip in mood, or energy, or a food craving. I am only on Day 7 of the Weight Loss Intensive, but I have stuck to my nutrition and exercise program with very little effort - it just feels right, and I have been struggling with these issues for a few years. My experience with hypnosis has been brief, but amazing, and I will definitely be a lifelong member of the site.

I wasn’t too familiar with [hypnosis] prior to hearing [Grace Smith] on Periscope and feeling so relaxed at my stressful job.

It was an outlet for me to decompress and not lose my shit.

Mine has been very recent. Danny J created her LifeAF program; which I desperately needed. I’ve had this belief that I was always going to be broke and that I was dumb. I never felt as smart as my friends, peers, that I had this limiting belief that I couldn’t be successful because of this. Low and behold, we start going through the course, and she did the Ho’oponopono and it changed me. I didn’t realize what I was holding onto. Then I thought, I have to do this on a couple of my girlfriends who were abused and lost their mom suddenly to help them recover and heal. I didn’t know I had it in me. I’ve created a few guideded meditations for anxiety, releasing your blocks to move forward in your career and conception. I’ve been using visuals and some suggestions, so in a sense I was doing a smart portion of hypnosis and guided meditation. This was a mere six weeks ago. I started looking at [Grace Smith’s] Hypnotherapy School weeks ago, and I put myself on the list. Knowing you’ve just had Patrick I didn’t expect one to open up. I got a bonus at work, so I scheduled Lasik for my eyes. Surgery was scheduled for the 6th, but it got rescheduled. That next week you opened up school. I knew it was a sign of what I needed to do! I have visions of going to different colleges and speaking with men and women who have been abused/raped for hypnosis. I can only imagine how many people are affected daily, and they are too afraid to see treatment.

“With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.”

Andy Thomson

I thought you would be "put under" and be under the control of the therapist....Or totally hokey and wouldn't work at all.

Anxiety and anger/mood swings [were the issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].
I do not like the the way I "behave", and it makes me feel awful for myself and those around me.

I am a stay-at-home mom in my late forties.  I had one 90 minute breakthrough session with Grace Smith to deal with some increasing anxiety.  I had no prior experience with hypnotherapy. Five years ago, I attended traditional psychotherapy for a year.  The sessions felt good while I was there, but I was seeing no lasting results.

Grace was very forthcoming and honest about what hypnotherapy would and would not do.  I wasn't to expect overnight 100% resolution to my issues. It would probably take several days to see any reduction in my symptoms.

The day after my session, I was in a situation that would instantly trigger a medium amount of anxiety.  I normally feel a sharp energy right in my heart, with a quickened heart and breath rate. I felt absolutely nothing in my heart, no quickness of breath. It was unbelievable.  It didn't even realize the extent I had been living with anxiety until it wasn't there.  I actually tried to recreate the feeling because the absence of my anxiety felt so strange.  It was a breakthrough moment that I needed help, and hypnotherapy could help me.

I also noticed I wasn't as reactive when things didn't go as planned with my husband and teenagers.  We had a minor incident that I normally would have exploded. I had a very calm reaction with no internal anxiety, and I completely moved on.  My reaction was so far from my norm, that my family thought, wow, she is really really upset, and we better steer clear. The changes I was experiencing where quick, drastic, and noticeable to everyone around.

Although I still have some anxiety, the intensity and frequency are dramatically reduced.  With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.

I have lived with anxiety and panic attacks associated with phobias and family issues for most of my life. I have found means of healing myself, but I looked to Grace Smith to provide even more tools to accomplish goals that I wasn’t able to on my own – more specifically, chronic nightmares and relationship issues with family members.

I’ve had several sessions with Grace Smith, and each one left me with a greater sense of calm and empowerment. The most remarkable result was the instant cessation of my chronic nightmares. I began to sleep better, helping me to function better during the day and improving my overall mood.

Not only would I recommend hypnosis to anyone struggling with similar issues to mine, I would recommend it to everyone. Hypnosis isn’t just for people with problems. It can also be a tool to improve work performance, strengthen personal relationships, and develop a deeper understanding of self. I use a lot of Grace Smith’s techniques in my personal meditation practice and with my own students.

Grace is an understanding, gentle, and compassionate hypnocoach who was sensitive to my personal needs and limits. I always felt in control during our sessions. She felt more like an assistant to my self-healing, which left me with an even strong belief that I have the power to change my circumstances for the better.”

I didn't "buy it".. or I thought even if [hypnosis] works for some people, I wouldn't be one of those people. I was extremely skeptical.

Major anxiety issues, which were causing me to have frequent insomnia [were issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].

The first session was spontaneous - a quick "tryout" on my sister's bed.. no real issues were tackled as I wasn't prepared to vocalize my problem, so this was just a general "unfocused" hypnosis - I was completely shocked at the way I felt throughout the session.. so completely present, but also like I was under a heavy spell. It was very strange, but I felt great the rest of the entire day - it almost came in waves, a feeling of complete contentment and spikes of giddiness. I really wanted to try again, but this time with a specific goal in mind. So I scheduled an appointment with Grace at her NYC office and let her know that I would like to tackle my anxiety and sleeplessness. The session was short, I was able to use a lunch break and go right back to work. And I slept SO well after. It felt like a physical & separate being had been living inside me, taking up space and disrupting my whole system. And Grace Smith was able to transform that energy so it was just me in there - I felt afterwards like my body was mine again.

I had no [thoughts about hypnosis before working with you]. I needed something to calm my mind from being on alert for 20 plus years as a paramedic in the streets, communications, flight paramedic, and retired fire officer for PTSD.

As we all know, post-traumatic stress disorder did not allow me to sleep because my brain was stuck in the "ON" position verified by bio-neurofeedback.

Periscope with Twitter was new to me. I'm not a big fan of social media. Grace was live on periscope one night when I couldn't sleep. I could hear Grace give her opening introduction and being the risk taker I am by nature, let’s give it a go. I have nothing to lose.  Keep in mind, I could go 24 to 36 hours without sleep or broken sleep patterns 2-3 hours at a time because of the previous occupation in high volume emergency service. Having tried counseling in the past by 5 different licensed therapists and Bio-Neurofeedback spending thousands of dollars, Grace provided the soothing calm voice, coaching, the mantra, hypnotherapy in 20 minutes. First time, I'm waking up in the morning with my ear buds still in my ears and phone on my lap. The best SLEEP I have received in years! I followed Grace in hypnotherapy through Periscope sometimes repeating her Periscopes that she had 2-3 times per day without actually falling asleep like the first time. I realized I could calm the brain waves by visualizing her instructions and I'm more laid back now than I have ever been. I use Grace's mantra when I feel that I'm about to go in alert mode, as my brain is hardwired to be ON 24/7, I can use Grace's mantra to bring balance to the present moment.  PTSD is way more manageable than any counseling and I reduced my sleep medication too. Hoping I can be off my sleep medication in 2018. The words "I am safe, I am calm, I chose to be here," I use in my own mind to help during PTSD triggers that are becoming fewer and far between.
Every brain is wired differently. This hypnosis is like the catch-all net for coping mechanisms in most stressful events or situations, for me.

I didn't have many thoughts about [hypnosis]. It did seem like something strange and woo woo. Nothing that I thought would help me.

My anxiety. I can remember being 4 or 5 and going to the movies with my grandmother weekly, and I can remember being so worried that we were in the wrong theater and worrying about what was going to happen if the wrong movie began to play. I can remember times when I was too paralyzed to answer a knock at the door, times I would have to turn the ringer off on my phone because hearing it would cause a panic attack, and times even hearing the mail drop into the mailbox would make me so anxious I would need to lay down.

A little over a year ago I discovered Grace Smith through Bex from Bexlife. I've watched most of her videos and periscopes. It has been life changing. I joined Grace Space as soon as it opened and haven't looked back. I can honestly say the last 6 months have been the best of my life. I listen to hypnosis daily, and almost every night I listen to the one hour full-length anxiety relief session. What have I gotten out of it? I sleep through the night for the first time in my life. I no longer wake in the middle of the night in a panic attack. I can answer the phone, the door, and am happy to get my mail. I haven't had a panic attack in as long as I can remember. Work no longer makes my stomach hurt, nor does having hard conversations with people. Hypnosis did for me what therapy, medication, exercise, and a whole plethora of "natural" remedies couldn't. It gave me peace for the first time. I feel free.

I was pretty sure that I'd be interested in hypnosis and hypnotherapy; I'd played around with YouTube hypnosis and had great results since I'm a pretty suggestible person, but I had always wanted a more trusting touchpoint with a hypnotherapist.

I didn't know much about hypnosis other than it may make you relax and the stage hypnosis jokes I had heard.

I was unhappy because I didn't make choices based on my desires and my marriage was falling apart.

I found Grace Smith in 2012 from a Living Social deal when I was at a point in my life where I realized the success I had achieved was not leading me to joy in life.  My marriage was falling apart heading to divorce, I was experiencing sexual identity questioning, my work was being affected and I was beginning to realize I had buried my own wishes for the sake of what others expected or needed from me.  On the outside, life looked amazing; I had a great career that paid well in a fortune 100 company, I had a handsome and hardworking husband and we had just bought our car and lovely apartment together. On the inside, I was withering away and eventually all it took was one little fracture in my marriage to realize my foundation was built on what others wanted and I no longer wanted to live that way.  


Grace Smith guided me through this time in private sessions to uncover most of my own blocks and limitations, helped me uncover and heal the wounds of a childhood impacted by alcoholic physical abuse that caused many of my fears and blocks.  I hadn’t realized how much pain I had buried and how I had let that stop me from living because I was so busy trying to keep myself safe, small and limited.  [Grace Smith] led me to explore beyond that fear, to the real me, my real wishes and desires. It took commitment, on my part and hers, and we both showed up consistently.  I started with her as a crumbling person, in a job that paid well but left me empty, a marriage where I was crying for genuine connection and attention and a life that I didn’t even recognize anymore.  


With Grace Smith, I began my path to where I am now in 2016. My life began to transform immediately in the first few weeks to have much more awareness and inner strength which supported me in getting my work back on track.  I survived emotionally, mentally and financially through my divorce.  In private sessions and group hypnosis, I continued on to explore other areas of what allowed me to experience joy and began to really feel alive.  I journey around the world, sometimes alone! I realized the profound impact hypnosis had on my life experience, I knew it was to be a part of my own personal calling, so in 2014 I began my certification to train with Grace to become a Hypnotist myself.  Today, I absolutely love every day in my life. Four years after my journey began with Grace, at my own pace and time, I left my corporate job and began working as a Hypno Soul Coach using hypnosis for guiding and healing others and blending that with my passion of spiritual energy work with the Chakras.  I have healed so much trauma between my father, who was my childhood abuser, and have cleared the pain that was there to reveal a loving supportive father-daughter relationship which I am incredibly grateful for.


I continued to follow Grace on Periscope live broadcasts and use Grace Space where her hypnosis recordings helped me to expand even further and do my own broadcasts and provide amazing support whenever I need to access it.  I have a budding relationship with the rest of my family after many years of separation and pain.  I have an amazing partner in my life who supports me, encourages me and loves me the way I know I am meant to be loved and I now have the strength, capacity and courage to love him the way he needs.  I have explored so much of the world and continue to expand my experiences and my skills based on what makes me feel alive. Grace Smith was the first person to guide me in my journey to living life this amazingly and I am so excited for the many ways she is supporting the world.  I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing, supportive and loving guide, teacher and friend.  She has had a tremendous impact in my life and I’m grateful to witness her love and amazing skills being shared with the world!

Grace Smith coincidentally came into my life precisely when I needed her, and thank God she did! I hired her for trouble with anxiety and memory, both of which she was able to help me with. Grace was very calming and understanding and gave me an environment in which I felt comfortable to do the hypnotherapy exercises in.

I went into hypnosis like I do everything else- open minded with a hint of skepticism. But I’m happy to say that Grace really did help me and she even taught me self-hypnosis so when I’m not in our sessions I have a mental tool I can use if I feel uncomfortable or stressed. The tools she taught me can be used at anytime in any place to relieve stress and bring relaxation.

I was able to regain some important memories and I feel much calmer at a constant level without even doing the self-hypnosis. The little things I used to find stressful don’t bother me so much and I can even find some enjoyment in them.

The deep relaxation I felt during and after our sessions helped me get better sleep and allowed me to be generally calmer in every day life. Grace was understanding, intelligent, and her presence was very soothing.

I was able to relate to Grace on so many levels that It made my experience of hypnosis a lot more beneficial as I felt confident in her abilities and relaxed in her presence. Just her gentle voice is enough to put you to sleep!

When it comes to suffering with anxiety I don’t think you can put a price on finding some relief from it. I would pay it all over again.

I would recommend hypnosis to anyone who is suffering from anxiety. At the very least it will provide you with deep relaxation periods during and directly after your sessions. It will also give you a ” go to ” technique to use if you panic when your on your own.

I would suggest Grace to anyone of my friends or family- in fact I already have!

I thought [hypnosis] was something that required time to do...I was always very interested; however, strayed away because I simply don't have 'me time'. The short and simple hypnosis Grace Smith shares with us are not only beautiful but handy tools we can utilize throughout our 'busy' days. THANK YOU!

I didn't realize I had a problem or challenge that I wanted to fix until after practicing [Grace Smith’s] hypnosis and realizing that I could do a way better job of stabilizing my thoughts, mind and emotions through hypnosis.

I am always on the lookout for positivity in my life. Prior to [Grace Smith’s] hypnosis, I felt extremely confident that I am way on a path of peace, love and harmony. I work in wellness and it's programs like yours that helps 'all' life paths that are continuously needed in our lovely world.  I began to practice your online hypnosis with the intention of simply taking a few seconds/minutes to practice mindfulness and positive affirmations. Several times into the practices I noticed these repetitions began to serve me with the challenges/struggles that came my way. They were loud and clear, "I am safe" when I unconsciously felt fear. "Take a deep letting go breath" when I dwelled on unnecessary attachments. Etc. That's when I realized that [Grace Smith's] hypnosis [tools] are installing not only a tool to interrupt and redirect but an alarm system that is making me more mindful of what/why I'm feeling. I am extremely grateful for this new journey of getting to know and manage thyself in a loving and healthy way. Beatitude!

“One benefit I didn't anticipate, but one that I cherish, is that the self-compassion is expanding my awareness of others and leading me to be more compassionate in my dealing with others and with my environment.”

I was dubious, but hopeful [about hypnosis]. I have meditated for years and I know the benefits of meditation. I am also a very spiritual person, so I was hopeful that I could relax and experience something new.

First, I wanted to stop eating JUNK FOOD. I am healthy, fit and knew that that was not something I wanted in my body, but I seem to have no control over the cravings. Second, I wanted to work on de-stressing and having fears about getting sick. I have a high stress job that I enjoy, but I know that the stress was affecting other areas of my life and I didn't like it. Because we lost a child to cancer, I was, for the first time, afraid of becoming sick. Third, as I get ready to retire and pursue artistic endeavors as part of my retirement, I wanted to learn to let go of my "get it done now" attitude so that the creative and compassionate side of me would open up and flourish.

Goal 1--dropping junk food. Well, this has been an issue for me FOREVER. After the first session with Grace, I began to see my craving thought process interrupted. I wouldn't just jump into a box of cookies. Instead I would think about what was triggering that craving, and perhaps meditate through it. Now the first week, I did have some sweets, but not as many and only one day. That's a success right there! I listened to our session several times during the week---sometimes when I was out on a run. That was a great combination---healthy activity supported by healthy choices. The second session Grace [Smith] created an element of aversion---saying that junk food was poison and helping me to imagine how I needed real food from the earth to nourish my active and stressed body. I have a stubborn little girl streak and this little girl was part of the narrative of my hypnosis. I was going to help myself by helping my stubborn little girl show herself (and myself) self-compassion by eating yummy, whole foods and throwing away the junk food. In my hypnosis, I cleaned out all the junk food in my house. When I got home that evening---I cleared out all my junk food!!! Since that second session, I haven't had any junk food. It's not that I haven't had cravings--instead, I make a loving healthy choice for myself. All this great behavior is happening while at work, I am working 15 hour days---very busy stressful days. But by nourishing my body well---I am managing the stress and we hadn't even done the stress hypnosis yet!!! When we focused on de-stressing, I was then able to destress on command based on a suggestion made during a session. So despite crazy crazy work hours, I was happy, not overly tired and not eating junk food, which used to be my comfort food!! I listen to the sessions that Grace [Smith] tapes for me and I hear new things every time I listen, so it doesn't feel repetitive. We just started goal 3--opening up my channel of creativity. But already, I am seeing common things differently--clouds are not just clouds. The colors of flowers seem to vibrate. And I am thinking about how I want my first days of art in retirement to be--being still, listening and observing. Sitting with my tools--appreciating what I can do with them. Looking quietly at things that inspire me. Observing normal things like cars going by and seeing the energy  in them and allowing myself to imagine how I can become a part of those items--and what it feels like. Suspending my highly active rational brain so that my creative energy flows from me and into me. I have more sessions left and I cannot wait to see how all these practices inter-relate and intertwine.  One benefit I didn't anticipate, but one that I cherish, is that the self-compassion is expanding my awareness of others and leading me to be more compassionate in my dealing with others and with my environment. I try to smile at everyone--and I am finding that I am attracted to positive energy, confidence and love and I naturally seem to push out the poisonous negative energy. That's a thrilling side benefit for me!!!

“With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.”

I thought you would be "put under" and be under the control of the therapist....Or totally hokey and wouldn't work at all.

Anxiety and anger/mood swings [were the issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].
I do not like the the way I "behave", and it makes me feel awful for myself and those around me.

I am a stay-at-home mom in my late forties.  I had one 90 minute breakthrough session with Grace Smith to deal with some increasing anxiety.  I had no prior experience with hypnotherapy. Five years ago, I attended traditional psychotherapy for a year.  The sessions felt good while I was there, but I was seeing no lasting results.

Grace was very forthcoming and honest about what hypnotherapy would and would not do.  I wasn't to expect overnight 100% resolution to my issues. It would probably take several days to see any reduction in my symptoms.

The day after my session, I was in a situation that would instantly trigger a medium amount of anxiety.  I normally feel a sharp energy right in my heart, with a quickened heart and breath rate. I felt absolutely nothing in my heart, no quickness of breath. It was unbelievable.  It didn't even realize the extent I had been living with anxiety until it wasn't there.  I actually tried to recreate the feeling because the absence of my anxiety felt so strange.  It was a breakthrough moment that I needed help, and hypnotherapy could help me.

I also noticed I wasn't as reactive when things didn't go as planned with my husband and teenagers.  We had a minor incident that I normally would have exploded. I had a very calm reaction with no internal anxiety, and I completely moved on.  My reaction was so far from my norm, that my family thought, wow, she is really really upset, and we better steer clear. The changes I was experiencing where quick, drastic, and noticeable to everyone around.

Although I still have some anxiety, the intensity and frequency are dramatically reduced.  With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.

I had no idea what hypnosis was. I meditated on a regular basis though, and was familiar with the concept, and workings, of the subconscious mind, so hypnosis made perfect sense as a way to try to access that part of the mind in a more direct way

I have a terrible habit of getting really excited about something, starting it 100% full on, then getting overwhelmed (which I convince myself is boredom or disinterest) and quitting.

I had started weight lifting, and was loving it, and I really wanted to improve and excel. But I noticed I began to have a common thought pattern where I was beginning to come up with reasons why continuing wasn't worth the time. "Because I would never get anywhere with it, because I wasn't going to be strong enough, because I would probably never be able to learn the technique anyway, because I should be doing other things with my time" and so on and so on. I'm famous for this pattern. I always lose that desire to follow through, and then I move onto something new, and just repeat the process. In my hypnosis session with Grace, she very quickly identified the source of this pattern (as did I once she began asking "breakthrough" questions) as a desire to have some sort of connection with my father, who I had not had a relationship with, but desperately (although subconsciously) just wanted to connect with. He is someone who lives his life with this exact pattern of behavior, even down to starting, and abandoning, a family. It really was a revelation for me, and Grace gave me the mantra, "I finish what I start, I keep my word, I am so rebellious" within my hypnosis, which I listened to each day, and repeated the mantra each time I walked up to the bar, or started to learn any new lift.  And for the first time I can remember, I have completely followed through with something, and more than that, I have excelled, and even competed.  I used hypnosis to get me through the competition process as well, which is a whole other success story because not only did it involve performing in front of a crowd of people (without fainting), but it involved wearing shorts...which is something I have been unable to do, without having an all out panic attack, for over 20 years 🙂

“It was the first time that I realized that first grade year could have been the kickstart to my nail biting/picking problem. I saw myself in hypnosis doing the exact thing I have had a habit of doing. It was eye-opening.”

Jen Ingalls

Read More
I knew nothing about hypnosis before starting, and only knew of "stage hypnosis," and wasn't sure how it was going to work in a therapy setting. I was open to trying and had no preconceived notions beforehand. I was actually hoping it was more like "magic" and a quick-fix. My friend's mom went to two hypnotherapy sessions and quit smoking cold-turkey. I was hoping the same would happen with nail biting.

My initial problem I wanted to deal with was nail biting/picking. My nails and cuticles were becoming so painful and destroyed from picking them. It was soon discovered that it wasn't really only the aesthetic reason of how my nails looked, but getting more to the root of the problem for why I was doing it - and that was stress and anxiety (mostly from my job).

Back in winter of 2012, after having been living in Manhattan for 9 months, I saw a LivingSocial deal for a Hypnotherapist session. I had never done hypnotherapy before and truly knew nothing about it.. except that my friend's mother quit smoking after only a session or two. I had something that had been on my mind for years, but more recently and within the entire year of 2012 had gotten pretty bad - I wanted to break my disgusting habit of nail and cuticle biting/picking.

I have bit my nails for as long as I can remember, and when I was 16, my mom said, "I bit my nails until I was 16. You'll stop this year." I didn't. At 21 years old as a Junior in college I said to myself "enough is enough.. my cuticles are dry and gross and my thumbs are sore and I sometimes pick at the skin until it bleeds, and this is not attractive and it's nasty and painful and I'm done."  I didn't stop. So by 24 years old in 2012, after I had been working in my first post-college job for over a year and my job itself was extremely stressful already, I felt like I needed to try something new and instead of spending money on another Livingsocial restaurant deal, invest in something for myself and my own well-being.

I saw Grace's picture and read a little bit about Awaken NYC and decided to buy the e-deal and commit to a 6PM session on a random weeknight to see if one session with a pretty stranger could wipe away a quarter of a century worth of short stubby fingernails and straggly cuticles.

I remember being SO nervous my first session.. asked to used the bathroom beforehand because I was scared I'd have to pee while in hypnosis and I'd pee myself or something crazy. I remember Grace explaining the difference of stage hypnosis versus what she does, and that I won't wake up and have experienced a true blackout where I don't remember anything (and secretly she had made me dance around like a chicken or something) but instead, we are targeting the subconscious mind and I'd be experiencing a slight dream-state, etc. After my first session, I felt really comfortable with Grace Smith more than anything. I saw her as like an older-sister type.. and she also had an eerie resemblance to my goofy friend and roommate at the time, so I felt ever more connected to her. 🙂

I had about 8 sessions with Grace in Awaken NYC over the course of the next few months, and about my 4th session in, we had a really awesome breakthrough. Grace had me under in hypnosis and she prompted me to regress backwards in time. She had me try to recall my earliest memory, and then from there to a memory when I was a little girl... not a baby. And what flowed to me next was incredible. For the first time in about 15-20 years, I really accounted my experience as a 6-year old first grader in elementary school. Under hypnosis, I could remember my outfits, my classroom, my teacher, my classmates, etc. As Grace asked questions and we talked about that early memory, I described the overall experience of that year. **(Side note: as an adult, when I was about 20, sometimes I talked to my mom and dad about that first year. My recollection is that I had this great group of girlfriends, and it was fun, but my teacher was mean. That's really it. My mom, on the other hand, thinks I was "kind of depressed that year." She says, "You would come home from school, and just sit on the couch and watch TV. And your only friend on our street was this weird boy across the street that you would sometimes go outside and play with. and I would ask you, 'Jenny, how's school?' and you'd said, 'it's fine.'  but you really lost the life in you and you didn't smile much. And you would say how mean Mrs. Cottone was." THIS BLEW MY MIND! I didn't know I was "depressed" or "not my bubbly, usual self"... how sad at 6 years old to be perceived as "down" and depressed by your parents!)

SO... I knew of this but we hadn't talked about it in years and I never really tried to go back and remember that first-grade year. But under hypnosis that session, I was talking about that year - the classroom, the teacher, getting in trouble for talking in class too much, etc. And when I was describing one incident where I remember getting called out in the middle of class and yelled at by my teacher because she thought I was talking to this girl Kate (when really Kate leaned over and asked me a question about a book I had on my desk, and I was just answering her). Grace said, "Good Jen.. this is great detail. Now tell me.. what do you see? What are you physically doing at this time? Where are your hands?" and I saw myself, embarrassed and cowered, getting yelled at by my mean Russian teacher, with my hands under my desk, rapidly picking my fingernails, out of nervousness, stress and anxiety. It was the first time that I realized that first grade year could have been the kickstart to my nail biting/picking problem. I saw myself in hypnosis doing the exact thing I have had a habit of doing. It was eye-opening. And from there, Grace and I would try to get to the root of when I pick my nails, in what environment, under what circumstances, what times of day, etc. so that I could try and 1) be more aware of it and 2) use some techniques to try and stop.


Over the course of the next year of so, we spoke pretty frequently, and my relationship with Grace expanded from just my nail-biting issue, to all of the other things she is so knowledgeable about. We spoke about life, and meditation and Past Life regressions, and the meaning of life. She ended up moving her office out of Manhattan, and I ended up leaving Manhattan December of 2013, but I continued to try and use daily mediation to stay calm and less anxious. I gained the courage to quit my stressful miserable job, leave the city that was overcrowded, expensive and making me anxious, and moved home to South Jersey in January 2014. I changed my city and my job to better help me get mentally and spiritually healthier.

Fast-forward 2.5 years... am I still biting my nails? No. (Because I keep them constantly manicured with gel). Am I still picking the gel off of my nails when my manicure starts to chip every 2 weeks? Yes. Once the gel is picked off, do I pick at my cuticles? Sometimes. Is it exacerbated by boredom or stress? Yes. Do I tend to do it more after a few cocktails? Also yes. But are there weeks at a time where my nails are healthy and growing and manicured and I don't touch them at all? YES. My point is that 8-10 hypnotherapy sessions over 3 years ago did not "cure me" or my 20+ year old long habit. If I had stuck with it, and really committed would it have? Maybe. But hypnotherapy isn't magic. It takes time, and patience and practice.. and takes a lot of self-talk and self-identification of the root of the problem. I wasn't "cured" from occasionally making my nails nasty and short and painful... but I did find clarity in what was triggering that for me. I recognized that my job and living in NYC was not good for me anymore... it was too stressful and my job was making me miserable and anxious and I needed to make a change. That change came after moving home in 2014, and then moving again into Philadelphia with my boyfriend in 2015… and working in a new job... and I have been the happiest and calmest and most alive I've been in years.

[I felt] intrigued and curious; open to the [hypnosis] experience.

Compulsive nail biting that had evolved into head scratch.

I was a nail biter since childhood. Bit my nails down to the skin (would bite a piece, peel the nail down to the nail bed, then bit it off which created a little hole. Then I bit from the bottom up). Super disgusting, right? Over time I got control over the compulsion (frequent manicures, self-control, etc.). During a stressful time in my life I found myself scratching my head. I wasn't biting my nails anymore but I would have a little itch on my scalp, scratch it, get a tiny scab, scratch it off, over and over and over again. I realized that it was essentially the same habit manifesting in a new way. And it was/is an anti-social and self-destructive habit that I wanted to break. I was very receptive to hypnosis. I was very open and wanted [hypnosis] to work so I didn't resist even though it was weird and a little scary to give up control. The experience was relaxing and invigorating. And I stopped head scratching immediately. Just lost the urge. It wasn't like I had to "try" to control the impulse, it just wasn't there. Amazing. This last about 4 months. (Here's the bad part but you don't have to talk about this in the book.) When I started to regress I called the woman I worked with and she had left Grace's office and then Grace left Grace's NY office. So, I didn't go back and the habit reemerged. And that's my story. A semi-success story.

I was a little skeptical about hypnosis because I had taken a group class with about 75 people in a room to stop a behavior.  I was so distracted by noises in room and had absolutely no effect, but when I saw Grace's post for free 3 minute hypnosis I decided to try it.

I had so many issues like overeating, but the absolutely most important for me was to get help with my deep depression, anxiety and negative thoughts.

Grace Smith literally saved my life!  I have been in such a deep depression for years and couldn't seem to stop my negative thoughts from constantly swirling around in my mind.  I felt hopeless and even after being on medications and having counseling for years, I was getting worse instead of getting better. I saw a post online advertising a free three minute hypnosis download by Grace Smith and I was very intrigued.  I downloaded the 3 minute and also the 10 minute free hypnosis and my life began to change. I signed up for the Grace Space trial and began to go through starting with the 4 steps to mental health. Grace was also holding daily Periscopes and some webinars, and I learned about neuropathways and how you could actually change your brain.  "I am safe, I am calm, I choose to relax," became my mantra.  Not only has my anxiety lifted tremendously, I have been able to help others who were suffering from anxiety and invited them to try Grace Space.  I am still a work in progress, but I am not sure where I would be if it were not for discovering Grace.  Grace is a true blessing and life-saver.

I thought hypnosis was for entertainment purposes only.
After watching your Periscopes,  I know hypnosis can help me reprogram my subconscious and help me be a better and more positive person.

I was looking to change the way I feel in my subconscious.  I am a naturally negative person and it takes effort to stay positive.  I need to stop being so hard on myself and others. I have pretty much isolated myself from friends and family. I feel like a big disappointment.

I wish I could say I feel success... I do feel much more positive and have been told by employer my positivity is my best asset and I owe that to your Periscopes and Grace Space.  


I am still kind of a loner and feel isolated.  I don't have many friends and my family has pretty much given up on me.  I'm 37 years old and don't need them to survive but I would like their support.  I live alone.. I work alone.. no girlfriend.. no kids. Kind of depressing but I believe your book could help me keep being positive and maybe some more positive changes in my life are on the way.

My thoughts were that [hypnosis] is just something that people do for fun and that it was to just entertain themselves.

I wanted to fix my negative ways of thinking and doing things and the reason for was because I felt trapped in my own head and wanted to heal into a positive direction.

Before coming across Grace Smith, hypnosis to me was nothing of interest and seemed like it was stupid. Being now a 17 year old, I am discovering myself as well as discovering new things. After meeting Grace Smith on Periscope and struggling with the first few hypnosis scopes to sit still and really focus I've really come a long way as in being able to sit still, be in the present, breathe and really focus on what the subject was. Because of Grace Smith taking her own time out of her day and jumping on Periscope to do hypnosis with us, I am very grateful for that as it has helped me become more aware of my thoughts, feeling more powerful and confident and being able to sit in the present. Knowing "I am safe, I am calm, I chose to be here" really helps me feel in the moment and be more calm and relaxed. Grace Smith has played a big part in my life and I would love to someday be able to do a hypnosis session live with her.

After that I kept on having these episodes but I did not know how to control it. So I decided to tell my doctor and he suggested to do meditation. I searched on Youtube and the first thing that pop out was Bexlife. I started with her for a couple of days then on one of her videos she suggested hypnosis. I tried it and I was hooked. After that, I also sign up for Grace Notes and they are great and have helped me a lot. It reminds me that I'm human and it is ok to express my feelings and also to be here in the present.

I was aware what hypnosis was but I was pretty skeptical that it would actually help. Until I experienced it for myself. I was fortunate to have Grace spend a few minutes taking away my chronic stomach pain.

As we were deep into session, I felt my stomach and intestines lighten and pain lift. Over the many years dealing with this pain I’ve always been willing to try everything and anything for relief with no success, until now!! I am so grateful that I found her. I do believe that people are put in our lives and on our path for a reason and Grace has been given to me as a gift to help me and heal me.

I wished I could’ve spent the whole day and weekend listening to you. You and Wayne Dyer captivated me!

Used [hypnosis] for birthing my last son.

It was for pain control instead of drugs.

I have two incidences of hypnosis. One here with Grace Smith - the weight loss work is working to keep me on track. I hear myself repeating the hypnotic phrases to stay the course. In the past I used hypnosis to control pain during labor. The post hypnotic suggestions were instrumental in delivering a large -10 lb. 11th baby...naturally. I was 44 years old and had 3 prior natural child births. The current work using Grace Smith’s 21 day weight loss program is coming along nicely.

Karey Shaffer

I actually didn't give [hypnosis] much thought. I just called it body centered therapy, where you tune into your body for accessing unconscious hidden parts of yourself.

Did you only want stories in which Grace Smith was the catalyst for change? For me, hypnosis was the first step in accessing hidden trauma and pain that conventional psychotherapy could not reach.

Physical pain brought on by emotional trauma, tension held in my body.

It was 2001, I had just gotten out of a divorce of an arranged marriage of one year and a half. The emotional trauma was immense, but I had nothing to say as I lay listlessly in the therapist’s chair. I couldn't feel anything besides for physical pain choking me and pressing down on me. I felt I was laying beneath a tree trunk that had fallen on top of me. With a help of a therapist who I had gone to for a Chinese form of accu-pressure but was dabbling in hypnosis, I began to ask my body what it was trying to tell me, and in this way I began to face the emotional pain that I was holding in my body. Laying down closing my eyes, and tuning in to my body was the only way I had to access my deep emotional pain. If I had not learned to do this, but had relied on psychologists, and medication, I shudder to think of where I would be today. Accessing my unconscious in this way opened me up to experience all of who I am in a way that has filled me with so much joy and love, I could never have imagined before.

I didn’t have too many thoughts [on hypnosis]. I went through 100 and 200 levels of psychology for nursing school. They didn’t touch too much on hypnotherapy. We didn’t know how life-transforming it could be for our patients. I discovered hypnotherapy for hypnobirthing. I thought hypnosis was some circus way to control people “magically”

Anxiety, fear, self esteem, being content/living in the now, physical pain, abundance blocks, self-sabatoging behaviors. I wanted to fix [these issues with hypnosis] because I, just like everybody else, deserves an abundant life free of paralyzing ego problems. Ever since having my son I am more driven than ever to grow.

I wanted to help with my anxiety so I listened to hypnobirthing while in was pregnant. That’s where it began.  I began participating in Grace’s group challenges. Then I realized it can help with EVERYTHING since the subconscious controls everything. I have helped cope with anxiety, depression, pain, chronic Lyme disease and co infections, and manage to bring in more abundance into my life. I am enrolled in Grace’s hypnotherapy program. I have been able to manifest many things into my life with the help of Grace and hypnosis to reprogram my mind.

“Now I can't wait for my next plane ride and travel destination.”

Amanda Rickert

I thought [hypnosis] was a scary concept because I've only seen hypnotists who hypnotize students to do silly acts at a school assembly in the auditorium. I thought they didn't have control over themselves because they said they couldn't remember any of the silly acts the hypnotist had them perform. So it scared me because I have panic and anxiety disorder and one of my irrational fears is to lose control over my own mind and body. So I stayed away from [hypnosis].

I have panic and anxiety disorder where I can have panic attacks at any given time and anxiety has consumed me to where I couldn't drive my own car, I couldn't go out at night, I avoided new situations because I would get anxious and I'd back out. As well as overcoming flying anxiety because I had never been on a plane before.

When I first found out I was going to Florida for Memorial day weekend and the airline tickets were bought, I freaked out full anxiety mode. I am 22 years old and I have panic and anxiety disorder and have had it since I was a baby. So then reason being anxious was because I had never been on a plane before. I was SO scared that I spent the month leading up to the trip researching everything I could about airplanes, travel anxiety, fear of flying, etc etc etc. I walked around work like a zombie because my mind was so engrossed with anxious thoughts of travel and flight. The day finally came and I was nervous like anyone would be, but when it was time to board the plane, I broke down in the ugliest bawling fit I had in many many years. I kept saying over and over again, "I can't! I just want to go home! I've never wanted to go home so badly in my life! I can't do this, I can't!" I heard children ask their mothers why that girl was crying and they said, "Oh, she's just worried about her seat, that's all. There's nothing to be afraid of." Knowing full well that it was just another irrational nervous traveller. But as soon as I was on the plane and we were taking off, I was relaxed, looking out the window and laughing in no time. I was amazed at how easy flying actually was and couldn't believe that 6.5% of the population suffered from Aviophobia, or fear of flying. That may not sound like a lot, but that's actually 20 million people worldwide! I've talked to many of my friends and family and they too said that they weren't keen on flying either. But I beat that statistic! I beat it and now I enjoy flying! It was because once I was on the plane, my boyfriend (whom was travelling with me and who had to practically drag me mid-panic attack to my seat) reminded me over and over to sit and "listen to those recordings you do." He was referring to the Grace Smith recordings for anxiety. So I sat back, closed that window shutter, held his hand and closed my eyes and got free and I enjoyed my mental freedom and after my 10 minute hypnosis sessions, which I did a couple times over to go even deeper into relaxation, I was having a wonderful time, realizing that being on a plane was super easy and smooth riding and kind of reminded me like being on a big bus. I was soon looking out the window taking pictures and loving my trip. Now I can't wait for my next plane ride and travel destination.

My anxiety. I can remember being 4 or 5 and going to the movies with my grandmother weekly, and I can remember being so worried that we were in the wrong theater and worrying about what was going to happen if the wrong movie began to play. I can remember times when I was too paralyzed to answer a knock at the door, times I would have to turn the ringer off on my phone because hearing it would cause a panic attack, and times even hearing the mail drop into the mailbox would make me so anxious I would need to lay down.

A little over a year ago I discovered Grace Smith through Bex from Bexlife. I've watched most of her videos and periscopes. It has been life changing. I joined Grace Space as soon as it opened and haven't looked back. I can honestly say the last 6 months have been the best of my life. I listen to hypnosis daily, and almost every night I listen to the one hour full-length anxiety relief session. What have I gotten out of it? I sleep through the night for the first time in my life. I no longer wake in the middle of the night in a panic attack. I can answer the phone, the door, and am happy to get my mail. I haven't had a panic attack in as long as I can remember.

I had tried [hypnosis] before for test anxiety and had success.
General feelings of unhappiness/knowing I was meant for more but not sure what/lots of procrastination [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].
Success is such an understatement! Hypnosis with Grace literally UNLOCKED MY LIFE - and I'm not even halfway through! In one of our phone sessions, we were focusing on my inability to focus and follow through on a task (studying mostly but also little things like laundry). I had a huge to-do list but felt paralyzed and as a result nothing was getting done. We talked a lot about this and then jumped into a hypnosis which started off general enough and then unexpectedly plunged me into a past life. It was surreal. I looked around me and could see the terrain as clear as day. I could see and recognize the faces around me, though they were not the faces of the people in my current life. I could smell the smells of the area I was in, I could reach down and touch my "clothing" and really feel what it felt like. It was animal furs, head to toe, which I have never worn and yet could really feel them. Grace walked me through a specific scenario and ultimately allowed me to travel to heaven - or my life between lives - where I was able to ask specific questions of some sort of council. There just isn't time or space here to express what the experience was like and whether you believe in past lives or not (or whether it was a past life or perhaps my subconscious' way of opening up to me) isn't what's important. The profound and instantaneous change in my life is what is important. Things that had plagued me for years (lifetimes even) were undone. My life opened up and possibilities became clear. One session literally changed the course of my life. I feel different on a cellular level. My mind and my heart are expanded. It leaves me thirsting for more, loving me, loving my life more and yet excited for expansion and what's to come.
From her second survey:
Before I started working with Grace, I was a little skeptical about hypnosis - and also nervous. It seemed like it could be a little dangerous giving someone access to the deepest recesses of my mind.
I was suffering from some pretty severe social anxiety (and to a lesser extent, driving anxiety). If we were invited to get together with friends (even friends I had enjoyed spending time with on other occasions), I would feel so much stress about going that I would often make myself sick. My stomach would hurt, I would feel nauseous and my heart would race just at the thought of going. And it didn't end there. If I did end up getting together with friends, afterward I would obsess endlessly about the event. Did I say or do something stupid? Did so-and-so like me/not like me? Did I embarrass myself/my husband/my kids? It was a vicious cycle. Enter the Grace Space Anxiety Challenge. I stuck with the challenge every single day for 21 days and what an amazing difference. Not only did I feel incrementally better after each session, but I found myself naturally applying the things I learned throughout the day. I was able to calm myself down when I started to get that same anxious feeling and actually start to not only look forward to getting together with friends, but enjoy myself during our time together and now worry endlessly for days after about what people thought of me. The relief from this level of stress is palpable! I am incredibly thankful for the changes I was able to make (and the processes I can continue to use) thanks to hypnosis.

I thought [hypnosis] was something that required time to do...I was always very interested; however, strayed away because I simply don't have 'me time'. The short and simple hypnosis Grace Smith shares with us are not only beautiful but handy tools we can utilize throughout our 'busy' days. THANK YOU!

I didn't realize I had a problem or challenge that I wanted to fix until after practicing [Grace Smith’s] hypnosis and realizing that I could do a way better job of stabilizing my thoughts, mind and emotions through hypnosis.

I am always on the lookout for positivity in my life. Prior to [Grace Smith’s] hypnosis, I felt extremely confident that I am way on a path of peace, love and harmony. I work in wellness and it's programs like yours that helps 'all' life paths that are continuously needed in our lovely world.  I began to practice your online hypnosis with the intention of simply taking a few seconds/minutes to practice mindfulness and positive affirmations. Several times into the practices I noticed these repetitions began to serve me with the challenges/struggles that came my way. They were loud and clear, "I am safe" when I unconsciously felt fear. "Take a deep letting go breath" when I dwelled on unnecessary attachments. Etc. That's when I realized that [Grace Smith's] hypnosis [tools] are installing not only a tool to interrupt and redirect but an alarm system that is making me more mindful of what/why I'm feeling. I am extremely grateful for this new journey of getting to know and manage thyself in a loving and healthy way. Beatitude!

Being able to relax. Being able to think positively

Well, the success story is very short because I've been unable to afford the sessions. I am on disability... But I was amazed when I saw [Grace Smith] on Periscope! I followed [Grace Smith] directions and the next thing you know anxiety-relief and self-confidence came to me immediately after the session lasted for a couple of weeks! Like I said, since I am on disability I am sorry to say that I cannot afford [Grace Smith] sessions even though I think they could change my life forever. Please keep up the good work. Always looking forward to [Grace Smith] sessions on periscope. They changed my life but for only a little while. I'm absolutely positive that if I was able to go through these sessions regularly that I could change my life for the better possibly for the rest my life! You keep up the good work!

I was kind of scared but fascinated. Negative thinking and losing weight after baby / I thought I was stuck with the baby weight for ever. The 21 days Mental Bootcamp was literally life changing. It help me realise I was in control of my thoughts and of my life. I was happy but still getting myself down on the small life stuff. Then I used the Weightloss program and realised I was only blocking myself by telling myself "it's harder to lose weight after baby / blablabla" once I changed my inner speech the weight started to come off.  

But I got pregnant again haha. So I will use it again after I deliver baby 2. Thanks, Grace Smith.

Even having studied psychology, and now being a spiritual person, I was hesitant to use hypnosis because of the lack of control I felt I would have.

I wanted to resolve anxiety that I had my entire life and be able to calm myself down effectively in the moment.

Right after I completed this challenge, I got my driver's license (for the first time) and it helped IMMENSELY to calm my nerves practicing behind-the-wheel with others in the car and now driving around anywhere. Now, when I go out in social situations and events (especially where I do not know anyone), before travel (even traveling alone) and occasional anxiety during the day, I now have the tools to talk to and be compassionate enough with myself to breathe deeply to calm myself down (and sometimes automatically hear Grace's sweet voice in my head).

Grace’s book helps break down the super practical sides of hypnosis from anxiety to weight loss. The exercises are simple and time efficient even for a mamma like myself who has a very active 2 ½ year old daughter. I have noticed a level of ease when it comes down to getting things done that I often find myself procrastinating about.

I was curious [about hypnosis] but had no idea the profound effect it would have on my life.

[I wanted to address] sleep, anxiety, procrastination.  I am working on my own business and working outside the home part-time, and I'd really like to build my confidence and reduce my anxiety and build the courage to be as successful as I can be!

So for a few years, I've focused on sleeping 8 hours a night. Trying to be in bed by 11 and up around 7. Some days it's a little less, some days it's more, but I know that one of the keys to better health is a good night's sleep. I was having the craziest stress dreams. They were always the same content. I'm alone in the restaurant, (which isn't ever really the restaurant, but a field, a hotel, a golf course, etc) and everyone needs a server and coffee and I'm the only one there, there not enough coffee cups and there is no coffee made. Those of you in the service industry know exactly what I'm talking about.


Well, a few weeks ago my friend Rebekah Borucki introduced me to Grace Smith. I signed up for her Grace Space program and starting using most of the therapies, but made a point of listening to "Think Happy" and I downloaded her app which has a SLEEP track. Every night just before I go to bed I listen to that SLEEP track and I realized I AM NO LONGER HAVING STRESS DREAMS. It took me about a week to realize they had STOPPED completely. I have just had the longest work week in the past year, some nights only getting 5 hours of sleep, but STILL no crazy stress dreams.


I worked three times the hours I normally do, no weird dreams and every night I slept like a baby. My first day off in 7 days and I Feel GREAT!

If there wasn’t so much research around hypnosis I would think what Grace does is simply magic because she’s just that powerful! She has a gift of helping others harness their own power to achieve what they really want. After my book came out, my workload increased drastically overnight. My sessions with Grace helped me to make the transition into my new necessary level of performance by instantly overcoming procrastination and overwhelm so I could perform at my best. If you’ve been hitting a wall in your life it’s time to turn to Grace for a breakthrough. I recommend her to anyone and everyone looking to overcome any longstanding, subconscious challenges.

I had tried [hypnosis] before for test anxiety and had success.
General feelings of unhappiness/knowing I was meant for more but not sure what/lots of procrastination [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].
Success is such an understatement! Hypnosis with Grace literally UNLOCKED MY LIFE - and I'm not even halfway through! In one of our phone sessions, we were focusing on my inability to focus and follow through on a task (studying mostly but also little things like laundry). I had a huge to-do list but felt paralyzed and as a result nothing was getting done. We talked a lot about this and then jumped into a hypnosis which started off general enough and then unexpectedly plunged me into a past life. It was surreal. I looked around me and could see the terrain as clear as day. I could see and recognize the faces around me, though they were not the faces of the people in my current life. I could smell the smells of the area I was in, I could reach down and touch my "clothing" and really feel what it felt like. It was animal furs, head to toe, which I have never worn and yet could really feel them. Grace walked me through a specific scenario and ultimately allowed me to travel to heaven - or my life between lives - where I was able to ask specific questions of some sort of council. There just isn't time or space here to express what the experience was like and whether you believe in past lives or not (or whether it was a past life or perhaps my subconscious' way of opening up to me) isn't what's important. The profound and instantaneous change in my life is what is important. Things that had plagued me for years (lifetimes even) were undone. My life opened up and possibilities became clear. One session literally changed the course of my life. I feel different on a cellular level. My mind and my heart are expanded. It leaves me thirsting for more, loving me, loving my life more and yet excited for expansion and what's to come.
From her second survey:
Before I started working with Grace, I was a little skeptical about hypnosis - and also nervous. It seemed like it could be a little dangerous giving someone access to the deepest recesses of my mind.
I was suffering from some pretty severe social anxiety (and to a lesser extent, driving anxiety). If we were invited to get together with friends (even friends I had enjoyed spending time with on other occasions), I would feel so much stress about going that I would often make myself sick. My stomach would hurt, I would feel nauseous and my heart would race just at the thought of going. And it didn't end there. If I did end up getting together with friends, afterward I would obsess endlessly about the event. Did I say or do something stupid? Did so-and-so like me/not like me? Did I embarrass myself/my husband/my kids? It was a vicious cycle. Enter the Grace Space Anxiety Challenge. I stuck with the challenge every single day for 21 days and what an amazing difference. Not only did I feel incrementally better after each session, but I found myself naturally applying the things I learned throughout the day. I was able to calm myself down when I started to get that same anxious feeling and actually start to not only look forward to getting together with friends, but enjoy myself during our time together and now worry endlessly for days after about what people thought of me. The relief from this level of stress is palpable! I am incredibly thankful for the changes I was able to make (and the processes I can continue to use) thanks to hypnosis.

“PTSD is way more manageable than any counseling and I reduced my sleep medication too.”

I had no [thoughts about hypnosis before working with you]. I needed something to calm my mind from being on alert for 20 plus years as a paramedic in the streets, communications, flight paramedic, and retired fire officer for PTSD.

As we all know, post-traumatic stress disorder did not allow me to sleep because my brain was stuck in the "ON" position verified by bio-neurofeedback.

Periscope with Twitter was new to me. I'm not a big fan of social media. Grace was live on periscope one night when I couldn't sleep. I could hear Grace give her opening introduction and being the risk taker I am by nature, let’s give it a go. I have nothing to lose.  Keep in mind, I could go 24 to 36 hours without sleep or broken sleep patterns 2-3 hours at a time because of the previous occupation in high volume emergency service. Having tried counseling in the past by 5 different licensed therapists and Bio-Neurofeedback spending thousands of dollars, Grace provided the soothing calm voice, coaching, the mantra, hypnotherapy in 20 minutes. First time, I'm waking up in the morning with my ear buds still in my ears and phone on my lap. The best SLEEP I have received in years! I followed Grace in hypnotherapy through Periscope sometimes repeating her Periscopes that she had 2-3 times per day without actually falling asleep like the first time. I realized I could calm the brain waves by visualizing her instructions and I'm more laid back now than I have ever been. I use Grace's mantra when I feel that I'm about to go in alert mode, as my brain is hardwired to be ON 24/7, I can use Grace's mantra to bring balance to the present moment.  PTSD is way more manageable than any counseling and I reduced my sleep medication too. Hoping I can be off my sleep medication in 2018. The words "I am safe, I am calm, I chose to be here," I use in my own mind to help during PTSD triggers that are becoming fewer and far between.
Every brain is wired differently. This hypnosis is like the catch-all net for coping mechanisms in most stressful events or situations, for me.

Addiction, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Fear [were issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I survived a very violent home invasion sexual assault by a masked man years ago. The events of that day changed my brain. I suddenly lived in constant fear and trusted no one. I developed a substance abuse problem as I tried to escape my fear and an eating disorder. My perspective on the world had completely shifted and I felt so stuck.
Six years ago, I finally made the decision to get clean and sober. Through recovery I began seeking out more ways to heal. Discovering Grace Smith's hypnotherapy was absolutely incredible for my healing journey! I started focusing on the PTSD since I still suffered an occasional flashback or flare up of fear. I began listening to a Grace Space hypno recording every single day. They were between 3-40 minutes. It became a very sacred part of my practice and I could feel the shifts in the way my brain was working. Her recordings were like next-level meditations. The benefits lasted beyond the recording itself and the changes in my neural pathways has had a lasting effect. I'm calmer, more centered, I have over 6 years of recovery with no cravings, and I haven't experienced a PTSD effect in months!
Today I have my dream jobs as a professional Singer and a Motivational Speaker! (www.blazebell.com www.blazeanderic.com) I'm a present and healthy wife and a Mom to 2 bright kids! Thanks in part to Grace Smith's work I am now able to help others heal in the ways that I have. I am eternally grateful!

My sessions with Grace have been so enlightening. She has taught me how to connect with myself and trust who I truly am. Grace is always available to provide guidance and support. She makes it easy to open up and be yourself. Her calming demeanor is so soothing and makes the hypnotic process so enjoyable!

I am still working on my program; however I began seeing major results within just a couple of sessions. I had a group presentation to give at my job and I was very anxious about presenting in front of hundreds of people. The day of the presentation I was excited, a little nervous, but most importantly, I felt great before I spoke. I was not at all nervous and performed better than I even imagined I could. My colleagues and boss were impressed with the presentation. I received such positive feedback, which made me feel like I was on cloud nine!! Some colleagues had even said I was a great public speaker!! My boss even personally wrote each one of my group members a letter thanking us for a job well done. It was an amazing feeling to be so calm during an experience, which in the past, would have been so anxiety provoking for me.

Overall, hypnotherapy has resulted in making me a much more relaxed, content, and at peaceful person. I truly feel hypnocoaching is absolutely amazing! I wish I started the process years ago! I am so looking forward to attending classes to become a hypnocoach myself. It is honestly the best way to get my day started and clear my mind of any stress or negative thinking.

At first I had thought the hypnocoaching was quite pricey; however, it has proven to be worth all that I have spent to receive the results I have been obtaining. I have ALREADY been referring many friends, colleagues, and family members to the Grace Smith Coaching sites and I am hopeful they will also attend and see the results for themselves!

Fear of public speaking: I was asked to present information during a two day business seminar

As a regular periscope watcher, within a day of my being asked to prepare a presentation Grace Smith provided a hypnosis on public speaking - I joined Grace Space and followed up with the course there (not complete due to it not being there) I was able to complete the presentation which I know I would not have without the hypnosis.

I had no idea that [hypnosis] was real and actually worked.

I had been asked to give a presentation on behalf of an association - I hadn't worked with them before and I didn't know the people I was presenting to.

There "happened" to be a periscope on public speaking the day after I was asked to make the presentation ( about 2 weeks before the presentation). I then joined Grace Space and went through all the online courses. (The public speaking course didn't have the last module which was frustrating) I had never chosen to do any public speaking and knew I wasn't able to do it - until the episode on Perisicope. When the day came, I backed up my learning with another session in Grace Space and I was able to give the presentation and enjoy it and felt like I belong and I am able to ask for more opportunities - subsequently I was asked to talk again for that association and now my work life has (coincidentally) changed, and public speaking is to be a part of my new reality, and I welcome it.

I started follow [when I] have a little time. I don't speak English very well, but what helps me a lot is the music and the serene voice of Grace; it soothes and makes me imagine colors - this technique of relaxation helps me, when I know I'll get traffic, I put 3 minutes the sound of the #relaxabrasil or when something happens at home and I lock myself in the room and place a sound and I'm thinking of good things, when I open the door I feel someone else.

I have lived with anxiety and panic attacks associated with phobias and family issues for most of my life. I have found means of healing myself, but I looked to Grace Smith to provide even more tools to accomplish goals that I wasn’t able to on my own – more specifically, chronic nightmares and relationship issues with family members.

I’ve had several sessions with Grace Smith, and each one left me with a greater sense of calm and empowerment. The most remarkable result was the instant cessation of my chronic nightmares. I began to sleep better, helping me to function better during the day and improving my overall mood.

Not only would I recommend hypnosis to anyone struggling with similar issues to mine, I would recommend it to everyone. Hypnosis isn’t just for people with problems. It can also be a tool to improve work performance, strengthen personal relationships, and develop a deeper understanding of self. I use a lot of Grace Smith’s techniques in my personal meditation practice and with my own students.

Grace is an understanding, gentle, and compassionate hypnocoach who was sensitive to my personal needs and limits. I always felt in control during our sessions. She felt more like an assistant to my self-healing, which left me with an even strong belief that I have the power to change my circumstances for the better.”

Our connection was far too robust in my mind. It helped specifically for me to detach and heal more.

I thought hypnosis was for entertainment purposes only.
After watching your Periscopes,  I know hypnosis can help me reprogram my subconscious and help me be a better and more positive person.

I was looking to change the way I feel in my subconscious.  I am a naturally negative person and it takes effort to stay positive.  I need to stop being so hard on myself and others. I have pretty much isolated myself from friends and family. I feel like a big disappointment.

I wish I could say I feel success... I do feel much more positive and have been told by employer my positivity is my best asset and I owe that to your Periscopes and Grace Space.  


I am still kind of a loner and feel isolated.  I don't have many friends and my family has pretty much given up on me.  I'm 37 years old and don't need them to survive but I would like their support.  I live alone.. I work alone.. no girlfriend.. no kids. Kind of depressing but I believe your book could help me keep being positive and maybe some more positive changes in my life are on the way.

Severe depression and anxiety brought on by a sudden estrangement of my son [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].

It is hard to write about it without crying and feeling all of the pain I was in.  I found Grace on a Youtube of Grace Smith TV. Several times a day for weeks and weeks I did the self-hypnosis, repeating the line "I am safe. I am calm. I choose to be here".  In reality I didn't want to be here and I had urges and thoughts of suicide. I was actually mad each morning that my eyes would open and I was still alive. I really wanted to die.  I would put on my headphones, listen to Grace's soothing voice and repeat her words.  It calmed me down and grounded me. Grace helped me through the pain and my suicidal thoughts.  She really saved my life.  She gave me something I could do to help myself and it really worked!!! It's been 2 years and I CHOOSE TO BE HERE!  Thanks Grace!!!

I didn't know much about hypnosis other than it may make you relax and the stage hypnosis jokes I had heard.

I was unhappy because I didn't make choices based on my desires and my marriage was falling apart.

I found Grace Smith in 2012 from a Living Social deal when I was at a point in my life where I realized the success I had achieved was not leading me to joy in life.  My marriage was falling apart heading to divorce, I was experiencing sexual identity questioning, my work was being affected and I was beginning to realize I had buried my own wishes for the sake of what others expected or needed from me.  On the outside, life looked amazing; I had a great career that paid well in a fortune 100 company, I had a handsome and hardworking husband and we had just bought our car and lovely apartment together. On the inside, I was withering away and eventually all it took was one little fracture in my marriage to realize my foundation was built on what others wanted and I no longer wanted to live that way.  


Grace Smith guided me through this time in private sessions to uncover most of my own blocks and limitations, helped me uncover and heal the wounds of a childhood impacted by alcoholic physical abuse that caused many of my fears and blocks.  I hadn’t realized how much pain I had buried and how I had let that stop me from living because I was so busy trying to keep myself safe, small and limited.  [Grace Smith] led me to explore beyond that fear, to the real me, my real wishes and desires. It took commitment, on my part and hers, and we both showed up consistently.  I started with her as a crumbling person, in a job that paid well but left me empty, a marriage where I was crying for genuine connection and attention and a life that I didn’t even recognize anymore.  


With Grace Smith, I began my path to where I am now in 2016. My life began to transform immediately in the first few weeks to have much more awareness and inner strength which supported me in getting my work back on track.  I survived emotionally, mentally and financially through my divorce.  In private sessions and group hypnosis, I continued on to explore other areas of what allowed me to experience joy and began to really feel alive.  I journey around the world, sometimes alone! I realized the profound impact hypnosis had on my life experience, I knew it was to be a part of my own personal calling, so in 2014 I began my certification to train with Grace to become a Hypnotist myself.  Today, I absolutely love every day in my life. Four years after my journey began with Grace, at my own pace and time, I left my corporate job and began working as a Hypno Soul Coach using hypnosis for guiding and healing others and blending that with my passion of spiritual energy work with the Chakras.  I have healed so much trauma between my father, who was my childhood abuser, and have cleared the pain that was there to reveal a loving supportive father-daughter relationship which I am incredibly grateful for.


I continued to follow Grace on Periscope live broadcasts and use Grace Space where her hypnosis recordings helped me to expand even further and do my own broadcasts and provide amazing support whenever I need to access it.  I have a budding relationship with the rest of my family after many years of separation and pain.  I have an amazing partner in my life who supports me, encourages me and loves me the way I know I am meant to be loved and I now have the strength, capacity and courage to love him the way he needs.  I have explored so much of the world and continue to expand my experiences and my skills based on what makes me feel alive. Grace Smith was the first person to guide me in my journey to living life this amazingly and I am so excited for the many ways she is supporting the world.  I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing, supportive and loving guide, teacher and friend.  She has had a tremendous impact in my life and I’m grateful to witness her love and amazing skills being shared with the world!

I had no idea what hypnosis was. I meditated on a regular basis though, and was familiar with the concept, and workings, of the subconscious mind, so hypnosis made perfect sense as a way to try to access that part of the mind in a more direct way

I have a terrible habit of getting really excited about something, starting it 100% full on, then getting overwhelmed (which I convince myself is boredom or disinterest) and quitting.

I had started weight lifting, and was loving it, and I really wanted to improve and excel. But I noticed I began to have a common thought pattern where I was beginning to come up with reasons why continuing wasn't worth the time. "Because I would never get anywhere with it, because I wasn't going to be strong enough, because I would probably never be able to learn the technique anyway, because I should be doing other things with my time" and so on and so on. I'm famous for this pattern. I always lose that desire to follow through, and then I move onto something new, and just repeat the process. In my hypnosis session with Grace, she very quickly identified the source of this pattern (as did I once she began asking "breakthrough" questions) as a desire to have some sort of connection with my father, who I had not had a relationship with, but desperately (although subconsciously) just wanted to connect with. He is someone who lives his life with this exact pattern of behavior, even down to starting, and abandoning, a family. It really was a revelation for me, and Grace gave me the mantra, "I finish what I start, I keep my word, I am so rebellious" within my hypnosis, which I listened to each day, and repeated the mantra each time I walked up to the bar, or started to learn any new lift.  And for the first time I can remember, I have completely followed through with something, and more than that, I have excelled, and even competed.  I used hypnosis to get me through the competition process as well, which is a whole other success story because not only did it involve performing in front of a crowd of people (without fainting), but it involved wearing shorts...which is something I have been unable to do, without having an all out panic attack, for over 20 years 🙂

[My thoughts on hypnosis were] hopeful. I believe that a lot of our issues and problems originate from the subconscious beliefs and attitudes handed down to us by our parents in our early years of life and that this programming affects our perceptions and how we interpret, react and deal with the experiences we call into our lives and indeed, what we call into our lives is the direct result of that early programming which is much stronger than simply saying, I don't believe that or this isn't my truth. Our lives have been built on these foundations whether we think we believe it or not...  I do believe though, that it is possible to reprogram our subconscious thoughts, but I didn't know how to go about it, how long it would take to ensure success and especially, what program would affect positive change. I mean, I'm sure my parents were doing and saying what they thought was best for my well-being and yet it is very obvious to me how their beliefs have impacted on my self worth and success. So whilst I was hopeful, I was also very conscious that what I replace the old programming with had to be right.

Anxiety [was the first issue I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I believe that our health issues are the direct result of our emotional experiences. I first developed asthma and the breathlessness triggers of anxiety which in turn escalates the asthma and [causes] more anxiety. Life was becoming difficult and unenjoyable and an incident with my daughter escalated these effects to panic responses. In order to begin healing, I needed to get control over the anxiety. [Secondly, I wanted to address] abundance. Asthma is related to self-worth and grief and the incident with my daughter stripped me of all worth. I raised my children on my own and having felt so little self-esteem as a young adult myself, I had done so much work on self-improvement, had studied early childhood and was always so conscious of what I said to my kids, how I responded to them, what I was teaching them - my kids are everything to me and I lived for them. I'm not talking "helicopter parenting" - I am talking about teaching them assertive behaviour and considering the effects of their life choices, teaching them about compassion and kindness and communication and love. We didn't have a lot when they were growing up and I usually put my needs last in order for them to have what other kids had. I really thought I was a great mother - this was the one thing that I got absolutely right. So when my adult daughters, both now with children of their own, suddenly turned on me; I was devastated. 3 days earlier I was the best mother in the world. My eldest said things that had never happened and she blocked me out of her life for 9 months. My youngest blocked me for 3 weeks and then came back because she needed money. When my eldest did agree to talk with me, she again said things that hadn't happened and if I tried to say otherwise she would scream and threaten to cut me out again. During this time, my heart broke and I felt absolute despair (much worse than grief) but both emotions affect the lungs. Everything that I had worked on becoming as a person, everything that I believed about myself, all my self-worth and self-esteem was stripped away and I could feel my life slipping away. I was dying, being smothered, breathing was something I had to force myself to do and the asthma and growing anxiety were making it harder. I still don't understand what happened but I can see a few of my failures - in putting myself last all the time, I taught them that I don't matter as much as they do; in helping them (because I never wanted their lives to be as hard as mine had been), they saw it as buying their love because I had made their childhoods hard; by not telling them why I had left their father, he had room to tell them lies; because I was so busy I had to choose my battles so it wouldn't be at their expense, they saw it as me bowing out because I must have been wrong; and now if I try to share how hard it was to raise kids alone, they say "plenty of other people do it" and they don't get that the other people they are talking about have financial help from their "ex" where I didn't - but that's just another lie their father tells them. When you have spent a lifetime of deliberately choosing not to engage in mudslinging, how do you come back from that. Their father is a bully, they had begun spending a lot of time with him and overnight my children became bullies. I found it hard to deal with. I can't take anxiety drugs and don't want to. Often the symptoms would escalate in places where it wasn't convenient or possible to stop and meditate and the 20+ years of self-development had crumbled after the incident with my daughter. So hypnosis seemed like my last hope to hang on to life, a miracle that could enable me to begin healing and it offered the possibility of a lifelong solution. I had been looking around locally but the programs offered where quit smoking and weight loss. None of them felt right. I kept asking the universe for peace and God's grace - "by the grace of God go I"...  There came a day when I felt like "this isn't living, it isn't fun" and that day I cried and prayed. I said I didn't want to live like this, take me or send me the help that I need. The next day, God sent me grace - literally! I opened facebook and right at the top of my feed was Grace Smith-Feitosa offering a FREE ANXIETY hypnosis challenge! I had never seen Grace's previous works, or come across anything about hypnosis on facebook and yet here she was, with a free challenge perfectly designed for the immediate help I needed to enable me with enough healing to begin working on healing all of me. This could not be a coincidence! With hope, I clicked on her first video and Grace sprang to life - with all her inner beauty and sincerity and contagious enthusiasm. I felt inspired and overwhelmed. I had prayed for God's "Grace" and here she was! In that moment I felt so grateful and loved and that was the beginning of my journey and my introduction to hypnosis.

One of the biggest causes of my health problems has been that I see the world through 'rose coloured glasses' because I get so hurt by the things that people do and say and no matter how many times I get hurt, no matter how many lessons I have learned, I am never prepared for the next one. I feel things so deeply. I give my all. I believe and have passion. Although I know how strong I am because of the challenges I have had to overcome throughout my life, sometimes I feel so tired and feel that I really am "too soft" for this world. I can literally feel the hurt that others feel or how something affects someone. My body is also very affected by my emotional state and it aligns with what I am feeling. That means that western medicine doesn't always work well for me because I need to heal the cause of my emotional state before the symptoms will disappear. This is why hypnosis works so well. It isn't a quick fix and I know that I have work still to do but by healing the thoughts that created the symptoms, I know it is possible. My first challenge was anxiety. Anxiety and asthma go hand in hand. The worse the asthma is, the worse the anxiety is, the harder it is to breathe at all. As you can imagine, it was a vicious circle. I am still not completely healed from anxiety because I still have asthma but the challenge stopped me from panicking when it occurred and that was enough to allow me to begin to heal some of the many misaligned thoughts that eventually resulted in asthma. Some of these are low self-worth, feeling less than, feeling like you can't be yourself, you must be perfect in order to be loved, feeling you lack something, feeling deprived, feeling smothered and stifled... Some of these thoughts are addressed in the abundance challenge and yes, I am manifesting money from known and unknown sources, but my ultimate goal is to manifest good health so that I can live an enjoyable life. Other thoughts that impact health will be addressed in various other challenges. I have been reluctant to admit that I also developed nodules on my lungs and esophagus and the lung specialist is waiting to see if it will become lung cancer. Lungs are related to grief and of course, nodules and cancer are basically from unexpressed feelings, regret, unworthiness, bubbling up or eating away at you or both. I am in my early 50's and I refuse to let this become my story. I know that my body is capable of healing itself. For me, that means healing the thoughts that created these symptoms. I have spent years in self-development, trying to become my best version, I have studied and grown from the teachings of Deepak Chopra, Louise Hays, Wayne Dyer, Maryanne Williamson, Ekhart Tollie, Abraham, Doreen Virtue, Bruce Lipton, Dr Emoti, Stephen Hawkins and the celebrity list goes on and on... Honestly, I would go so far as to say that I probably have one of the largest book libraries of self help, spiritual leaders, quantum science, healers and innovators covering every topic known to man that many of you have ever seen! And they are all fantastic and complement each other and make perfect sense but for me, all of my years of study was still stripped away in an instant, by the only 2 people on earth that could ever do that - my children! The child of my body, my kiss from God.... I have done the groundwork. This time I need permanent healing. The only way I can see to do that is to reprogram my programming, to overwrite that early "software" with new, sustainable scripts. I know that hypnosis is the way to do that because from that first challenge, even when I have been in circumstances that have made me anxious, I have never again wished for death to take me. I am healing. I am on a healing journey and by the "Grace Smith-Feitosa" of God, go I.... Thank you Grace, my saving Grace. I love you, I'm taking baby steps but I am moving. I will always be eternally grateful to God and the universe for sending Grace to me and as I heal, I am excited to know that my true purpose is unfolding.

I used to think hypnosis was scary, that it was like giving up your subconscious mind to another person, as the Hollywood movies portray. I was always under the impression that I would be fully unconscious during the session, but it's nothing like that!

I had awful, almost debilitating social anxiety for around 2 years, and a milder form of it for years before that. I wasn't able to make new friends, I could barely ever go to a store for fear of interaction with sales people. It was very difficult for me to communicate with other adults at work. It had recently become hard to even talk to my family! I wanted to feel comfortable having a casual conversation with people and be able to chase my dreams without anxiety!

Before I started using Grace Space hypnosis, I felt trapped by social anxiety. I hadn't made friends for a few years, and being pretty fresh out of high school, I didn't really have any of my old friends around. It got worse as time went on; I couldn't go to stores or make doctor's appointments because I was so anxiety-ridden about the interaction. It got to the point where speaking with my family was difficult and I was avoiding them as much as I could. I knew I had to do SOMETHING when I was avoiding my dad and it was impacting our relationship. I signed up for Grace Smith's anxiety challenge, and before it began Grace offered an anxiety bundle of 3 anxiety recordings for $20. I bought it and began listening to all of them, but I really focused on the social anxiety recording. After listening to it nightly for about a week, I began noticing that I could talk to people. It was the most AMAZING feeling. I had no idea how much I was missing out! My life has improved tenfold. I got the job I wanted and desperately needed, and was even able to ask for more money for more work during the interview! I am now following my dreams and making friends every single day. I'm so happy with the results that I joined Grace Space and began  Grace Smith’s hynotherapy school! I want to spread this gift and give every person I meet the ability to live their best lives! Thank you Grace Smith!

I didn't really see [hypnosis] as effective.

I have been looking for additional tools to cope with my general stress and anxiety, and to help me deal with a toxic relationship in my life. I am also looking to improve my health and I have a weight loss goal.

After listening to Grace's endlessly fascinating interview on Katie Dalebout's podcast, I listened to the three-minute stress relief hypnosis later that day and was awed by how calm I felt. Before picking up my younger children that day, I parked my car and listened to the 10 minute relaxation recording. I felt amazingly calm, and handled my chaotic afternoon with four kids much more peacefully than usual. Later that evening, my husband tried to dredge up an old argument, and instead of taking the bait, I found myself shifting gears and responding with complete calm and ease. It wasn't until the next day, when I listened to the 10 minute relaxation recording again, that I realized there was a part about "angry words being cleaned away". It had worked perfectly for me! On a similar note, before listening to the recording for a second time, I wrote in my journal, mentioning that the only word that I could use to describe my feeling was "clean". Again, I didn't realize until later that the word "clean" was actually part of the hypnosis. I became a member later that day and embarked on the Weight Loss Intensive. I also continue to listen to the relaxation recordings every day. I am calmer, happier, and more centered than I can ever remember feeling before. I feel incredibly light, positive, and at peace. I feel so happy knowing I have these recordings to turn to every day, when I feel a dip in mood, or energy, or a food craving. I am only on Day 7 of the Weight Loss Intensive, but I have stuck to my nutrition and exercise program with very little effort - it just feels right, and I have been struggling with these issues for a few years. My experience with hypnosis has been brief, but amazing, and I will definitely be a lifelong member of the site.

Addiction, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Fear [were issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I survived a very violent home invasion sexual assault by a masked man years ago. The events of that day changed my brain. I suddenly lived in constant fear and trusted no one. I developed a substance abuse problem as I tried to escape my fear and an eating disorder. My perspective on the world had completely shifted and I felt so stuck.
Six years ago, I finally made the decision to get clean and sober. Through recovery I began seeking out more ways to heal. Discovering Grace Smith's hypnotherapy was absolutely incredible for my healing journey! I started focusing on the PTSD since I still suffered an occasional flashback or flare up of fear. I began listening to a Grace Space hypno recording every single day. They were between 3-40 minutes. It became a very sacred part of my practice and I could feel the shifts in the way my brain was working. Her recordings were like next-level meditations. The benefits lasted beyond the recording itself and the changes in my neural pathways has had a lasting effect. I'm calmer, more centered, I have over 6 years of recovery with no cravings, and I haven't experienced a PTSD effect in months!
Today I have my dream jobs as a professional Singer and a Motivational Speaker! (www.blazebell.com www.blazeanderic.com) I'm a present and healthy wife and a Mom to 2 bright kids! Thanks in part to Grace Smith's work I am now able to help others heal in the ways that I have. I am eternally grateful!

I had always struggled with my weight, and had been successful at losing 50+ lbs but was "parked" at about 20lbs over my goal. I KNEW it was mental, my relationship with food was NOT good and MORE than losing the 20lbs I wanted to resolve my relationship with food.
Also, I was living in NYC (it had always been a dream to live there) at the time and feeling depressed and lost. I didn't have a partner (I was in my early 30s), was dating all the wrong people, didn't have a job that I loved, and was seeking to be happy and satisfied with my life.
I had always wanted to try [hypnosis] but never followed through because I hadn't found someone I felt I would click with. I always believed in our minds being SO powerful (and still do) and thought that with the right person, or guide, hypnosis could be so POWERFUL (boy was I right)! I followed Erin Stutland on FB (this was in 5+ years ago) and she made mention of [Grace Smith]...I immediately went to the page and everything that I read totally resonated with me- so I immediately called!
I first met Grace Smith in Feb of 2014, and she CHANGED my LIFE. FOREVER. I really am so extremely BEYOND grateful to have met her, she, and our sessions and recordings, have gotten me through the TOUGHEST times over the last 4+ years.
My two biggest "issues" were weight/relationship with food and finding a purpose, path, partner.
I'll start with weight, and I won't lie- it's a challenge, because I met Grace with 30+ years of "cultivating" my unhealthy relationship with food. WE REALLY FOCUSED ON [MY UNHEALTHY RELATIONSHIP WITH FOOD], VERSUS LOSING THE WEIGHT, BECAUSE I KNEW THAT THE WEIGHT WOULD DROP OFF ONCE THAT RELATIONSHIP WAS BETTER. I dropped 10+ lbs of the 15 I wanted to lose. I have maintained that weight loss since. My relationship with food is still strained at times, like any relationship ;), but I am constantly working on it, I listen to my recordings with Grace, and sometimes even jump on a session with her live (when I'm lucky) for a refresher...it's work, just like being in a human to human relationship!

As for my path, purpose, partner...whoa what a success story I have here! Since I started working with Grace I have moved back to Colorado and met and MARRIED the man of my dreams!! while I am now in a job that I KNOW is not my path, or my passion, working with Grace has SHOWN me how to KNOW that, and that, is priceless. I am able to clearly know that it's time for a change, and why, and this is something I was never bale to do before. I work in an environment where I feel obligated to do a lot of the things that I do, for many reasons, and my sessions with Grace have been so helpful in listening to ME and figuring out what is right for ME.

I am most recently participating in her "21 day abundance" challenge. having had one-on-one sessions with Grace for many years, and with my success stories, I of course, know how powerful she and hypnosis are...but participating in this group challenge has been incredible! The challenge is focused on abundance and each hypnosis is better than the last, really! I have already brought in over $500 of 'extra' cash into my life, and now my relationship with money is completely changing, for the positive (I already had a positive relationship with it, but Grace and this challenge has managed to make it even more positive!)

I have had dozens of sessions (lucky me!), from my weight loss focused ones all the way to full on panic attacks that her recordings have gotten me through...Grace has not only changed my life, but in many ways, SAVED it. I cannot wait to see (and experience) what is next for Grace and hypnosis going mainstream!

I had tried it with a therapist at a young age (around 14) but never really believed or was open to it. I had my doubts that I’d be able to open myself up to it all these years later, thinking I may always be “thinking”…when I found [Grace Smith], though, I decided to make a commitment and have an open mind. It took a few sessions and some work to do that but wow, did I change fast! I had a laundry list of things to work on and I must say- the changes in my life are crazy in a short two years ( I think it’s been two years)…. Where to begin.. 1. weight – I had always been overweight and had recently lost and maintained about a 50lb loss (about 4 years before starting to work with grace) I was 20 lbs away from my goal though and it seemed nothing I did got me there… 2. relationship- I wanted to find a meaningful and real relationship. I had never had any long term relationships before, they were always with this men that were never present, treated me badly or lied to me…there was always something that felt wrong 3. I wanted to find meaning in my life/career I will have to send minor details now but would be HAPPY to fill in with more if wanted!! 1. weight- I have never been this low, and am BEYOND thrilled with my results. I’m learning every day to LOVE my body…it’s work, and still is and probably will be…but I’m in a size 28 jean, 6 dress and feel great! 2. I’M ENGAGED to the LOVE OF MY LIFE! I feel I never would have been able to be in the type of relationship I’m in without the work I have done with Grace. We are open, honest and communicate constantly. It is all I have ever wanted out of a relationship…and more! 3. I just started as CEO of my family’s business…I have been working in different capacities at the company for almost 14 years now and last year moved back to Colorado from NYC for a temporary 2 months, I ended up extending, extending, extending…not only did I fall in love (and get engaged, last week!) but I ended up falling back in love with the project and realizing it is what I’m MEANT TO do! I started as CEO last week. Starting soon I will start CEO work with Grace!

Always curious about [hypnosis]. Saw [Grace Smith] on Periscope and was actually able to be hypnotized for the first time in my life!

Being able to relax. Being able to think positively

Well, the success story is very short because I've been unable to afford the sessions. I am on disability... But I was amazed when I saw [Grace Smith] on Periscope! I followed [Grace Smith] directions and the next thing you know anxiety-relief and self-confidence came to me immediately after the session lasted for a couple of weeks! Like I said, since I am on disability I am sorry to say that I cannot afford [Grace Smith] sessions even though I think they could change my life forever. Please keep up the good work. Always looking forward to [Grace Smith] sessions on periscope. They changed my life but for only a little while. I'm absolutely positive that if I was able to go through these sessions regularly that I could change my life for the better possibly for the rest my life! You keep up the good work!

I had used hypnosis before as an aid to relaxation, so I did have an understanding of it, though never specific to my performance in sport.

The challenge for me was competition nerves; my sport of freediving depends upon being in the most relaxed state as possible to get the maximum breath hold during dives. I wanted hypnosis to get me into the zone, focused and very relaxed before my dives.

After my session with Grace Smith, she made a recording specific for a pre-dive relaxation, I used this before my dives. Also I had a recording of the session where we addressed key issues and techniques, mostly on my perception of challenges particularly towards the end of the dives where it is physically and mentally quite tough. My difference in my training was evident and my performances reflected that. I competed at the freediving world championships and was very pleased with my dives. I found my session with Grace Smith so helpful, she is a great coach and will use the techniques and recordings for my competitions in the future.

All I saw was about hypnosis on TV through people entertainment, appeared a people who did she slept and then she do something like eating an onion thinking it was an apple, always brought to the entertainment and not a science and form of relaxation

I am very stressed with traffic, I live in São Paulo one of the cities with the worst traffic the world and am also very anxious. I am very critical at the intelligence and it makes me intolerant and aggressive with people.


I want to relax more and improve socializing with friends and family leaving certain things aside and be more patient.

I started follow [when I] have a little time. I don't speak English very well, but what helps me a lot is the music and the serene voice of Grace; it soothes and makes me imagine colors - this technique of relaxation helps me, when I know I'll get traffic, I put 3 minutes the sound of the #relaxabrasil or when something happens at home and I lock myself in the room and place a sound and I'm thinking of good things, when I open the door I feel someone else.

[I felt] intrigued and curious; open to the [hypnosis] experience.

Compulsive nail biting that had evolved into head scratch.

I was a nail biter since childhood. Bit my nails down to the skin (would bite a piece, peel the nail down to the nail bed, then bit it off which created a little hole. Then I bit from the bottom up). Super disgusting, right? Over time I got control over the compulsion (frequent manicures, self-control, etc.). During a stressful time in my life I found myself scratching my head. I wasn't biting my nails anymore but I would have a little itch on my scalp, scratch it, get a tiny scab, scratch it off, over and over and over again. I realized that it was essentially the same habit manifesting in a new way. And it was/is an anti-social and self-destructive habit that I wanted to break. I was very receptive to hypnosis. I was very open and wanted [hypnosis] to work so I didn't resist even though it was weird and a little scary to give up control. The experience was relaxing and invigorating. And I stopped head scratching immediately. Just lost the urge. It wasn't like I had to "try" to control the impulse, it just wasn't there. Amazing. This last about 4 months. (Here's the bad part but you don't have to talk about this in the book.) When I started to regress I called the woman I worked with and she had left Grace's office and then Grace left Grace's NY office. So, I didn't go back and the habit reemerged. And that's my story. A semi-success story.

I was unbiased. I had no real opinion. As a yoga teacher I had been using meditation for a few years so I knew there was something to [hypnosis], I just hadn't experienced it for myself.

I have had a few sessions for different challenges. Including: weight loss, self-acceptance, and abundance. They all actually stem from the same root: not feeling good enough, and that is something I definitely want to change.

I had a short session with Grace Smith once for building self-esteem, self-acceptance and self- love. The session itself was very relaxing and calming but I didn't feel any overwhelming change right away. It wasn't until about a week later when I shocked my husband by walking around completely naked in our bedroom, in daylight! It didn't even occur to me that I was doing it until he pointed out that I NEVER do that. I am usually quite timid about showing my body. I am typically always covered up. As soon as he pointed it out, I knew that this was the direct result of my hypnosis session with Grace Smith! Of course we didn't work specifically on being comfortable naked, but the work on loving myself in all my imperfect perfection resulted in My increased confidence and feeling comfortable in my skin for the first time in as long as I could remember. I had no fear or anxiety about being naked. It was amazingly liberating! And while I do not walk around outside naked, I know that being comfortable and confident to do so at home has given me so much confidence and self-acceptance outside my home and in the world! I still listen to that session once in a while to keep building my confidence.

Before finding Grace Smith, I had had limited exposure to hypnosis. I knew that hypnosis could be used to deal with things like getting rid of phobias and bad habits, such as smoking. I also knew that it could be used to access past lives and even the time between incarnated lives.

I wanted to get over my fear of pressing the 'Start broadcasting' button on Periscope.

What a wonderful surprise it was to have Grace Smith as the host of the Periscope Summit Live in San Francisco in January of 2016. I had already been following Grace on Periscope and had been enjoying her hypno-scopes that she does weekday afternoons. They always help to bring my stress level down and allow me to experience peace and calmness.

I was in a very funny place at Summit Live. Let me explain...I had done many live broadcasts on Periscope in the past, but with a great deal of anxiety. Then I got busy with a personal project and stopped broadcasting. After this break from it, I could not bear the thought of hitting that 'Start broadcast' button. The fear and resistance I experienced were incredible.

I also had this ticket to Summit Live which I had bought when I was still scoping fairly regularly. The thought of even going to the summit caused me great anxiety. I really wanted to bail on the whole thing except that I had a voice in my head telling me to go—that it would ultimately be good for me to attend. So I did.

I was so fearful of broadcasting by now, that the thought of broadcasting some of the panels at the event where I didn't even have to be on camera, terrified me. Along came Grace Smith to the stage to charmingly welcome us all to the event and that was where my shift began. Grace did a group hypnosis with us where she used positive affirmations and visualizations so that we would feel empowered to hit that big, red 'Start broadcast' button.

After that session, I sensed into staring at that red button and pressing it I could tell that my anxiety had already gone down a great deal. Later that day, I was actually able to broadcast a panel. It was my first 'scope' in about 2 months. It was truly a healing experience for me. I then scoped several more panels.

The next day, I went up into my hotel room to prepare for another scope. This time I was going to be in front of the camera sharing my story of the fear I had experienced surrounding scoping again and how Grace Smith and hypnotherapy helped me to overcome it. As I stared at the 'Start broadcast' button, I was amazed to notice that my anxiety level was even less than the previous day. Grace had mentioned that the effects of hypnosis expand with time and I certainly did experience that.

Now I have over 1000 followers on Periscope and enjoy scoping regularly. I even took up a leadership role as part of Global Meditation Scope, a Periscope event. I was in charge of new or infrequent broadcasters who wanted to be official hosts of the event. I became their Peri-Godmother encouraging them to scope regularly and giving them my guidance and support to be successful on the app. I am also in the process of building a Periscope channel with other broadcasters contributing to it.

Am I glad I followed the guidance I received to get my buns to Summit Live? You betcha! Otherwise, I would not have had that hypnosis session with Grace Smith and may not have gotten back into broadcasting. And not only that...I likely would not be attending Grace Space Hypnotherapy School! Grace's simple group hypnotherapy session helped me get out of a major slump I was in and now I feel like I am fully on my 'path.'  Thanks Grace!

I was pretty sure that I'd be interested in hypnosis and hypnotherapy; I'd played around with YouTube hypnosis and had great results since I'm a pretty suggestible person, but I had always wanted a more trusting touchpoint with a hypnotherapist. It's a personal thing to allow someone into your heart and mind and allow them to help you, so I was looking for the right person before shelling out money for sessions - you're the one!

I wanted to get over a thought that I was bad at math before a pretty quantitative interview, and the hypnosis not only helped with that mental block, but also working on my interview poise. I've interviewed very well since then, and also found better grounding in and of myself!

I had tuned into Grace's Periscope hypnoscopes, and also had the honor of joining GraceSpace when it first opened under a new redesign. I think seeing how effective those hypnosis sessions were made me reach out to Grace Smith and ask for help on pre-interview-prep hypnosis; I knew I was walking into a job opportunity I wanted with previous baggage about my performance in interviews, particularly with regard to my math abilities. Sure enough, in just one session, Grace was able to reprogram my mind; I passed the interview with flying colors! Although I decided to not take that particular job in the end, I no longer feel as intimidated by interviews as I once did, afraid that I'd blabber on too much or say the wrong thing. Now, interviews excite me, and I know I'm incredible at math!

I only knew hypnosis from movies , I imagined that you are going to make me fall asleep and control me or something. My family still has this idea; they get shocked when I tell them "I tried hypnosis" they were like " did you fall asleep? These things are not popular here in middle east.

We have lots of exams here in UAE , and the time I heard Grace scope was just the day before my math final exam, I had troubles with anxiety and focus 🙂

Every time I tried hypnosis, I felt so relaxed and calm during my studying sessions when I actually was freaking out and sometimes, I couldn't solve some questions in my book , I had lots of things left to study and no time, tt was midnight clock was ticking, I just couldn't move forward which made the situation worse! But suddenly I saw the notification that Grace is scoping. I said to myself lets try! I looked to this scope as my last chance to feel better before my exams, I felt so lucky because Grace played a recording "which is available now in Grace in your pocket App " It was a delightful trip to increase focus, productivity .. I could already feel my confidence, focus, [sense of] calmness increase before even reaching the middle of the recording! I was in a wonderful state when I got back to my books, just after the hypnoscope I could do all the problems that I couldn't do very very easily! Without even thinking, my mind was very clear, I felt secure and in peace. The next day in the classroom I was confident when solving questions and I remembered the recording in the exam and felt so focused. The exam went smoothly and guess what ? I got 100. 🙂 Alhamdulilah

“Grace Smith and hypnosis took away my fear and gave me the confidence to be the practicing doula I am today.”

Erica Stauffer

I had never experienced hypnosis but was open to it.

I was in the process of quitting my "day job" and pursuing my passion of being a doula and student midwife. I was scared that I didn't have enough experience to be successful and was afraid to market my business.

After being at a job for 14 years that wasn't rewarding to me, I found my passion in the form of birth. After the birth of my fourth child, I realized that helping mothers through childbirth was my calling and I immediately worked on doula certification with the intent to begin midwifery school once my doula practice had taken off the ground. I completed my doula certification and then became a bit frightened. I had done a few births but wasn't gaining the traction I needed. I knew that I needed to market myself online as well as in person (via birth fairs, visits to OBGYN offices and birth centers, as well as be a featured speaker in birth classes) but I found myself questioning if I had enough experience and knowledge to do this. I worried that I would be seen as a fraud or that clients would immediately turn me away when they saw that I had a minimal number of births under my belt. It was during my maternity leave of my 5th baby that I came across Grace Smith and she was offering a special to talk to her and record a 15-20 min hypnosis over the phone. I was open to the idea and so I set up an appointment. I was really nervous when it was time for my appointment but as soon as I heard [Grace Smith]’s voice, I felt at ease. She asked me several questions about my work, my children, my dream of becoming a successful doula and midwife, among other things. In the time we spoke, [Grace Smith] was able to perfectly summarize what my goal was which really had nothing to do with finances or money but rather that I wanted to help women through childbirth to feel as empowered and amazing as I had felt by trusting their bodies to birth a baby and to know that they could do it. I have always thought that if a woman can give birth, she can do anything and I wanted women to know the powerful being that they are. We then did the hypnosis and Grace Smith sent me a copy via email. After listening to [hypnosis recording] one time, my fear vanished. I'm not sure how or why, but I called a prenatal and postpartum chiropractor and scheduled a meeting to go over my doula services. I didn't question my experience any longer because Grace Smith made me realize that my experience as a mother of 5 was all that I needed and that my heart and maternal knowledge helped me to know and understand what pregnant mothers needed to birth their babies and to ease their labor pains and any fears. My website began to receive more views, I created a Facebook webpage, went to my first birth event where I had my own booth and met several new clients. Grace Smith and hypnosis took away my fear and gave me the confidence to be the practicing doula I am today. I am now a full time doula and began midwifery school 7 months ago and am on my way to realizing my dream. I absolutely know that hypnosis did this for me and have no doubt as to its influence. Thank you so much, Grace Smith. You have changed my life for the better.

Well, the success story is very short because I've been unable to afford the sessions. I am on disability... But I was amazed when I saw [Grace Smith] on Periscope!

Like I said, since I am on disability I am sorry to say that I cannot afford [Grace Smith] sessions even though I think they could change my life forever. Please keep up the good work. Always looking forward to [Grace Smith] sessions on periscope. They changed my life but for only a little while.

I wanted to help become more focused on my professional goals and taking them from idea to successful products and services. I tried hypnosis before and it didn’t work. Going into my first session with Grace I was skeptical, expecting a simple meditation session and not much else. It was refreshing to hear that Grace was just as skeptical before she tried it as I was.

Grace is an everyday woman with an extraordinary talent. Her soothing voice and energy are just gorgeous. She explained the process in a way that made sense, even for skeptics like me. Drawing from her own experience and expertise, she allows me to relax, let go and allow my inner power to shine through. She also gave me easy-to-follow, highly effective techniques to help keep me focus and strong.

I believe that hypnosis is a powerful technique that can help you with both physical and emotional barriers. I feel a lot more confident and positive about my abilities and talents; mainly because I now understand that there is no difference between the “me” that I want to become and the “me” of today. I will continue to practice hypnosis for years to come!

Even the most skeptical of readers will find in this book important information that will serve them well in their quest to changing negative habits and behaviors. Grace’s book is a significant tool for two main reasons: first, it debunks a lot of the popular myths around hypnosis and second, it helps you learn how to practice self-hypnosis as an empowerment and healing tool. It will help you achieve freedom indeed.

I wish I could say I feel success... I do feel much more positive and have been told by employer my positivity is my best asset and I owe that to your Periscopes and Grace Space.  


I am still kind of a loner and feel isolated.  I don't have many friends and my family has pretty much given up on me.  I'm 37 years old and don't need them to survive but I would like their support.  I live alone.. I work alone.. no girlfriend.. no kids. Kind of depressing but I believe your book could help me keep being positive and maybe some more positive changes in my life are on the way.

“I loved the sound of Grace's voice and was amazed at how quickly I could feel so much happier and more confident.”

Linda Hatley

Read More
Hypnotherapy could be a powerful tool to deal with individual issues for example fears but was really more for middle class people and not the ordinary person in the street.

Confidence and shyness [were the issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].

I was first introduced to hypnotherapy when I was in my 20's by my Dad who recommended trying it out. I had been painfully shy as a child and always felt lacking in confidence and wanted to overcome this now I was an adult. I had one session and although I really enjoyed feeling very relaxed I didn't go back. The hypnotherapist gave me cassette tape which I still have, to listen to for relaxation which I used for a while to help me sleep but then put away in a drawer where it stayed. Many years passed and about a year ago I discovered Periscope and signed up thinking what a great app this would have been to show my travels around the world to my family so would begin using it now. I was having a particularly stressful time with work and life and was feeling constantly tired and overwhelmed with working long hours and never getting on top of things. I had started to lack confidence, doubt myself and be very self critical.  I began watching meditation scopes and came across one of Grace's hypno scopes and immediately felt better. I loved the sound of Grace's voice and was amazed at how quickly I could feel so much happier and more confident. I continued following and then signed up for the 21 Day Mental Bootcamp on Grace Space. I was absolutely amazed at what a difference the bootcamp made to me from day 1. Around that time through my work in children's social care I was becoming aware of several teenagers who were experience mental health issues and became aware of the prevalence of anxiety in children and teenagers and the impact this had on their lives and their families. I wondered why something as quick and effective as hypnotherapy that could be so beneficial was not offered or used. Approximately 4 months later I was attending a weekend workshop about managing finances and we were asked to discuss in a small group what we would do if money was no object. Out of the blue I suddenly found myself saying that I would like to study hypnotherapy and offer it to children and young people to help with issues they may have. I didn't even really think about it, it just came out but I felt so inspired and excited about the prospect of this. As it happened in my group was a hypnotherapist who told me that often she had children and young people referred to her but she specialised in addictions in adults and could not find other hypnotherapists who could take on working with these children so if I should definitely do it as it was so much needed. I cannot tell you the sense of excitement I felt. She invited me to a seminar with a hypnotherapist who specialised in helping people deal with pain in the body and when I learned more about his I was bowled over. I often hear Grace talk about how in her journey she could not understand how hypnotherapy was not offered to the masses to overcome their problems and I completely resonate with that. Every time I talk about hypnotherapy to others and read about it I get such a deep sense of excitement. I recently told my Dad that I was planning on training as a hypnotherapist and again I was surprised at my absolute clarity and confidence that I was going to do it.
Since finding hypnotherapy again last year I have continued to feel happier and my confidence has grown. I've taken up opportunities I would have avoided in the past even being interviewed by a journalist for a TV news item on prime time TV.

I was open minded about [hypnosis] but had never tried it before.

I'm continuing to have success stories but mostly was so intrigued by hypnotherapy after doing the group class on "Increasing your Intuition" in the tree house at Soul Camp.

My thoughts were that [hypnosis] is just something that people do for fun and that it was to just entertain themselves.

I wanted to fix my negative ways of thinking and doing things and the reason for was because I felt trapped in my own head and wanted to heal into a positive direction.

Before coming across Grace Smith, hypnosis to me was nothing of interest and seemed like it was stupid. Being now a 17 year old, I am discovering myself as well as discovering new things. After meeting Grace Smith on Periscope and struggling with the first few hypnosis scopes to sit still and really focus I've really come a long way as in being able to sit still, be in the present, breathe and really focus on what the subject was. Because of Grace Smith taking her own time out of her day and jumping on Periscope to do hypnosis with us, I am very grateful for that as it has helped me become more aware of my thoughts, feeling more powerful and confident and being able to sit in the present. Knowing "I am safe, I am calm, I chose to be here" really helps me feel in the moment and be more calm and relaxed. Grace Smith has played a big part in my life and I would love to someday be able to do a hypnosis session live with her.

[I thought hypnosis] was mind control.

Emotional ups and downs, needing to feel more confident in myself, being happy again. I wanted to fix these because it did not feel like I was living my life. I felt like I was just on autopilot.

My name is Lea and I was searching for a way that was quicker at changing my emotions and making me feel better. I was using positive affirmations and working to keep my thoughts positive. I had heard of hypnosis before and had the same belief that most of the world has, that [hypnosis] is mind control. Really I was just uninformed about what hypnosis really is which as Grace Smith says which I agree, “Hypnosis is meditation with a goal”. I liken it to deep relaxation with the ability to change areas of your life that are not for your highest and best good. There is no magic or mind control going on. I kept an open mind and I listened to some of Grace Smith’s videos and periscopes and felt a difference immediately. I was not quite sure why this was but when Grace Smith posted on Facebook she was having a school for hypnotherapy, I knew I had to enroll. I have only been doing hypnosis for a short time but, I absolutely love the way I feel every day! When I have anxiety and worry about doing well in this class, the quiz taking, getting my assignments done on time and keeping up with everything else in my life, family, work, etc. I listen to a hypnosis recording and within minutes I am calmer and more relaxed. My brain is not going 100 MPH with everything I need to get done. I feel more able to prioritize my tasks to be the most effective. I have noticed that I am generally calmer and relaxed throughout the day with as I am doing hypnosis daily. I love [hypnosis] and wish I would have known about it sooner.

I didn’t have too many thoughts [on hypnosis]. I went through 100 and 200 levels of psychology for nursing school. They didn’t touch too much on hypnotherapy. We didn’t know how life-transforming it could be for our patients. I discovered hypnotherapy for hypnobirthing. I thought hypnosis was some circus way to control people “magically”

Anxiety, fear, self esteem, being content/living in the now, physical pain, abundance blocks, self-sabatoging behaviors. I wanted to fix [these issues with hypnosis] because I, just like everybody else, deserves an abundant life free of paralyzing ego problems.

I thought [hypnosis] was like what you see on TV...a little weird and that you don’t have control of yourself. My thoughts were that you get under a “spell” of some sort!

I knew that my inner voice always told me I can’t get what I really want or that I am undeserving of the things I really want in life which are attached to money and abundance. I also had an inner voice saying “more money more problems.” As a new business owner in the holistic wellness and nutrition industry, I knew that I needed to fix this mentality in order to inspire healthy living in my community more efficiently.

I have been enlightened in that I will get what I am looking for, but I must set the intention of WHAT it is I am looking for each day in order to see it and achieve it. After setting my days up with intention to win, acknowledging / respecting myself as a true resource for others, and changing my mantra to “you have so much to offer everyone around you,” I became much more confident and my business started to grow during the group challenge on abundance.

Grace's sessions are made for everyone with any background or beliefs, and everything rang true to my unique beliefs. I never expected to be as drawn into each group session but I was! Grace Smith leads her sessions with a calm and peaceful confident that truly empowers her participants.

My thoughts on hypnosis were that it's a lot of weird things we needed to go through, but I knew that a friend of my had many results to heal her wrong eating habits. I thought that if it would help her with that it might help me too after I tried everything under the sun already.

I could not focus on what I wanted to do with my life. We moved to Canada from the Netherland in 2010 and after becoming adjusted here I wanted to start a home-based business for myself that wasn't MLM. Now 7 years later, I went through starting up two online businesses, and they both did not come off the ground. After that, I started an expensive course to become a life coach, but this course only made me feel worse about myself, and I was feeling like a complete failure. I never finished this course and started telling myself that I would always stay small and I better start getting used to that. It did not feel good to me because deep down I know I am made for bigger things in this life and now I was turning 40 I wanted to deal with this failure feeling for ones and for all.

I am still working on this success story as I started working with Sara and feel I can start up a business from home and work towards that for spring 2018 and join your school to become a Grace Smith certified  Hypnotherapist. It feels I finally found something I am able to work towards and know where I'm going. My goal is to have my success story ready before I finished the school.

I didn't have any strong feelings about [hypnosis]. The only prior association I had with it was past life regression. I suppose my assumption was that this was the primary purpose of hypnosis. I also was somewhat aware of stage hypnosis, but it was mostly an afterthought.

Feeling anxious about my finances [was an issue I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. It was difficult for me to stay organized regarding my finances and sometimes I would dread looking at my accounts so intensely that I would avoid it and then sometimes bills wouldn't be paid on time or I'd over spend. It just seemed like no matter what I would try or no matter how many alarms I would set on my phone or in my calendar, I could not ever seem to feel calm and confident about dealing with or tracking my finances.

I began listening to the Ultimate Anxiety Relief program in Grace Space as well as the Financial Abundance Binary recording in the Grace Space app.

I knew I wanted to release anxiety, and I also knew that most of my anxiety was related to my finances.

Things began shifting very shortly after a few days of listening to those recordings. In fact, the next day after I began listening, I felt inspired to login to all my accounts, set up automatic payments, put together a spreadsheet of all my expenses, canceled ongoing memberships that I wasn't using, and getting things in order. After a few more days of listening to the recordings, I started getting ideas for a new direction in my career. One of the big ideas was to start a local sacred women's circle, something I'd normally feel terrified to do. While I am still in the stages of putting these ideas together. I've already begun reaching out to acquaintances and have been enjoying the process so much. Not only are these recordings helping me heal my financial anxiety, they're helping me feel safe and trusting of myself in my ideas for new streams of income as well as moving forward in my desired career.

I was a hypnotherapist when I met Grace Smith but her fresh approach fascinated me. She makes hypnosis fun, delicious and professional.

I wanted to fix my lack of self-confidence.

I was a hypnotherapist trying to get out there and help some people but couldn't trust and believe in myself. My desire to work in this field was enormous but my lack of confidence was even bigger. I was looking for somebody whom I could trust and whose working style resonated with me when I found Grace Smith on Periscope. Her first hypnosis on periscope I watched fascinated me and kept me wanting more and following her on the steps she was taking. I loved the way she was helping people all around the world. It was something I also wanted to do and the way she and her husband where bringing always new ways of spreading this wonderful healing method around the world especially when there is so much misinformation about it, made me even admire them more. After following her for a while and benefiting from her free hypnosis recordings I decided to enroll in her 3 month hypnosis coaching program in order to work deeper on my problem. Since the first session I noticed the difference. The improvement has been increasing during this time and still is. After each session I feel more free and secure. Her sessions are magical and incredibly effective. Her way of using hypnosis takes the best of the modalities out there that is why when I heard she was going to teach hypnosis, I run to be part of it. It has been only a few weeks since the school started but every minute of the training has been worth it. I am grateful I found her! Thank you!

“Now 6 months later she has some full eyelashes back and more are growing but most importantly her habit doesn't affect how she feels about herself!”

I didn't know what to believe. I had a strong meditation practice so I knew the mind was powerful. I was open to the [hypnosis] experience.

Although I have worked with Grace Smith, the success story I want to share is of my 11 year old daughter Emma. She has anxiety and pulls her eyelashes. We wanted to fix it because it was causing her more anxiety and low confidence.

In 2015, my 11 year old daughter Emma's eyelash pulling was at its worst. She had no eyelashes left and she was getting small sores on her eyelids from picking at the tiny eyelashes that were trying to grow in. The eyelash pulling had become an even bigger problem than the esthetic one - she was now feeling worse and worse every time she pulled an eyelash. She continuously told us how she 'couldn't stop' and that she was 'dumb' and 'not normal.' I asked Grace [Smith] if she could work with Emma on her self-esteem around pulling her eyelashes and maybe even that habit itself. When Grace Smith called me, she spoke to me and asked me a few questions including my goal for the session. My goal was simply to free Emma from the burden of how picking her eyelashes made her feel. I wasn't concerned with the habit itself but more with how badly it made her feel. Then Grace [Smith] spoke to Emma and asked her a few questions including what Emma would consider a successful treatment. Emma responded by saying that if she went from pulling 5-10 eyelashes per day to pulling that many per week she would consider that a success. Grace [Smith] and Emma had their hypnosis session and Emma was instructed to listen to the recording as often as possible. Within 24 hours Emma started noticing that she wasn't picking as many eyelashes! I also noticed that when she did pick one she didn't seem to feel so bad - and she just picked one! She usually would pick one, feel bad and pick more and more. But she would pick just one! She continued to listen to the recording and see impressive results! Now 6 months later she has some full eyelashes back and more are growing but most importantly her habit doesn't affect how she feels about herself! She is happy and carefree again and not focused on how many eyelashes she has or doesn't have! It is truly amazing! I can't possibly thank Grace enough for giving Emma her carefree childhood freedom back!

I love [hypnosis], trained in it and seeing clients.

I was struggling at my job wondering if I should start my own business. Secondly, once I did, I was met with crazy levels of self-doubt and avoidance. That’s when we did an over the phone session.

First, Watching [Grace Smith] and Bex on Periscope gave me the courage I needed consciously and subconsciously to step out on my own. Secondly, we did a session to cut cords with my parents’ form their abuse, depression, emotional disconnect, and sexual abuse...family curses...all to release my fear & self-doubt & got my power back. [Hypnosis} helped me feel very powerful. I feel powerful again every time I think about it. I have since watched and learned from everything [Grace Smith] teach on Grace Space and I absorb it like a sponge. For some reason, I am one of those who needs a lot of work and the issue persists, like cheek biting and bruxism. But every session, I feel better and better and stronger and stronger. I can’t ever give up knowing your tools are there to help me get up and [Grace Smith]’s success is there to remind me I can get up and I can do it. You are my virtual mentor and one day I will afford to take your Hypnosis training and I look forward to that day.

I didn't think much about [hypnosis]. I imagined that it was beneficial for some people.

Self-doubt. There was this fear of not being able to do the things I wanted in life. Lots of mind chatter talking me out of things.

My story isn't huge but whenever I feel fear or stressed, I can hear Grace Smith's voice in my head saying " you can handle this!" It has been helpful during certain moments of panic.

I was unbiased. I had no real opinion. As a yoga teacher I had been using meditation for a few years so I knew there was something to [hypnosis], I just hadn't experienced it for myself.

I have had a few sessions for different challenges. Including: weight loss, self-acceptance, and abundance. They all actually stem from the same root: not feeling good enough, and that is something I definitely want to change.

I had a short session with Grace Smith once for building self-esteem, self-acceptance and self- love. The session itself was very relaxing and calming but I didn't feel any overwhelming change right away. It wasn't until about a week later when I shocked my husband by walking around completely naked in our bedroom, in daylight! It didn't even occur to me that I was doing it until he pointed out that I NEVER do that. I am usually quite timid about showing my body. I am typically always covered up. As soon as he pointed it out, I knew that this was the direct result of my hypnosis session with Grace Smith! Of course we didn't work specifically on being comfortable naked, but the work on loving myself in all my imperfect perfection resulted in My increased confidence and feeling comfortable in my skin for the first time in as long as I could remember. I had no fear or anxiety about being naked. It was amazingly liberating! And while I do not walk around outside naked, I know that being comfortable and confident to do so at home has given me so much confidence and self-acceptance outside my home and in the world! I still listen to that session once in a while to keep building my confidence.

I have had issues with self-love and seizures from head injuries. I have really wanted to gain a greater sense of self-worth and not have the terrible seizures that interfere with living or more happy life.

I have had several head injuries, those have caused me to have seizures, depression and anxiety. I've also had some rough experiences over the years, but I must say I've learned a lot. By means of having the tough life experiences, I have been gifted with some great wisdom, some priceless understandings of people, places, and things.

I struggled a bit with jealousy previously, but her offering the awesome advice about that is priceless! That to instead of feel envy or compare, just hope for that person to be blessed with even more good! Hope for them to gain even more awesome, happy, lovely good things.

I didn't really have thoughts on hypnosis one way or another, to be honest. It had never really landed on my radar. But once I discovered you through Danny (I think!) and you explained hypnosis to us as just "Meditation with a Goal," I became super interested to try it out!

Feeling confident in myself and my creativity again after getting sober, conquering addiction (including sugar cravings!) and learning to love myself again. Also eliminating chronic extreme anxiety and attracting abundance! I wanted to fix these things because I've been through so much in my life and was ready to start fresh, to start new. The time is now!

(First of all, I have an entire life story that should be a Hallmark Movie. It includes being born in the Midwest as a virtuosic singer/songwriter and live performer, losing my father at a young age yet his body still being here on earth due to a traumatic brain injury (then having a spiritual connection with him now), witnessing addiction in all its forms break apart my family, getting a Vocal Scholarship to the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston, then discovering that addiction had also grasped onto me in all its forms (co-dependent relationships, #MeToo, drugs, alcohol, pills, sugar, food, etc.) in my early 20s living in Hollywood and going down that dark path for 3+ years... then the heartwarming story of overcoming addiction at 25 years old and getting sober, writing a hit song out of it, and becoming a Healer, Transformation Coach, and studying Hypnotherapist. Finally able to live out my Life Purpose - to be a Light for others so that they too may See.

At this point now - January 2018 - I have used Hypnosis to attract over $10,000 of EXTRA money into my life (major ABUNDANCE) and have also relieved chronic EXTREME ANXIETY, along with everything else listed above. Using the amazing healing capacity of Hypnotherapy, I finally feel confident in myself and my creativity again. After getting sober, I have conquered addiction (including sugar cravings!) and have learned to love myself again.
From her second survey:

At first, I only signed up to receive your Grace Notes, introduced through Danny J after doing her "Find the Money" Program since I was drowning in student loan and credit card debt. I was intrigued by these Grace Notes and instantly felt close to you, as I read/write/think/teach the same thing. From there I researched your website and felt a God-nudge to learn and teach hypnosis as well, from you specifically. The year was 2016 and I noticed your Hypnotherapy School offering had just launched. I really thought about signing up right then and there (mind you, without EVER even listening to one of your hypnosis recordings - just basing it off my impression of you and feeling of good, positive, loving energy!) but at the time my financial situation didn't allow me to be able to move forward. However, from that moment I kept following your journey as a leader (even more intensely this time), joined your Weight Loss Challenge GraceSpace Facebook Group, and had my first hypnosis success! I then purchased a few of your recordings and began to listen to them daily.

I experienced immediate results with the No More Sugar Hypnosis and became an even bigger believer. Feeling the addictive 'need' to eat sweets and junk food to numb myself had been taken away from me! It was a miracle.

When I love something I spread it far and wide fast, so from there I started telling all my friends about you, your wonderful Divine Purpose, the fact that you are also a Lightworker and leader in this new age, and knew 1000% that I must study with you. My intuition is almost ALWAYS correct, and after getting sober 2 years ago I have learned to follow my heart more and more.

Then, in the FB Weight Loss Group, when you shared in one of your live videos that you were sober as well and overcame your addiction, I broke down and cried. Tears of joy. Right in that moment, I knew again that God had led me to you for a VERY important reason - and that deeper connection we share of going through the 12 Steps together - connects us in the matrix even more. This was all divinely orchestrated, so it must be done. It was God's will to work with you, so now the excitement kicked in even more, know that I was finally following MY purpose!

Hypnotherapy is such a beautiful healing modality and a way for us to give back to the world. I know that my passion - just like yours has - will lead many new people to heal and recover from their struggles and challenges. Hallelujah and Amen! I can't wait to continue healing myself through Hypnotherapy alongside your lovely expertise to add this modality as well to my practice as a Healer and Lightworker.

More of my Hypnotherapy success since then can be contributed to doing the Anxiety recordings in Grace Space and truly feeling better than I've felt in a long time. Now I can BREATHE through things and feel a deep sense of peace within, instead of fear. And since doing your latest Abundance Challenge, I have attracted over $10,000 of EXTRA MONEY into my life! That includes things coming out of nowhere... getting a check for $8,000 from an old car accident settlement finally coming through, signing a $3500 songwriting deal with a minimum of $10,000 in royalties coming in once it is released, signing on a new healing client who reached out to me on Day 3 of the Abundance Challenge and purchasing my $1500 CyberScan package, among many other examples. I have a full list if you'd like to take a look 🙂

[I felt] intrigued and curious; open to the [hypnosis] experience.

Compulsive nail biting that had evolved into head scratch.

I was a nail biter since childhood. Bit my nails down to the skin (would bite a piece, peel the nail down to the nail bed, then bit it off which created a little hole. Then I bit from the bottom up). Super disgusting, right? Over time I got control over the compulsion (frequent manicures, self-control, etc.). During a stressful time in my life I found myself scratching my head. I wasn't biting my nails anymore but I would have a little itch on my scalp, scratch it, get a tiny scab, scratch it off, over and over and over again. I realized that it was essentially the same habit manifesting in a new way. And it was/is an anti-social and self-destructive habit that I wanted to break. I was very receptive to hypnosis. I was very open and wanted [hypnosis] to work so I didn't resist even though it was weird and a little scary to give up control. The experience was relaxing and invigorating. And I stopped head scratching immediately. Just lost the urge. It wasn't like I had to "try" to control the impulse, it just wasn't there. Amazing. This last about 4 months. (Here's the bad part but you don't have to talk about this in the book.) When I started to regress I called the woman I worked with and she had left Grace's office and then Grace left Grace's NY office. So, I didn't go back and the habit reemerged. And that's my story. A semi-success story.

I didn’t have too many thoughts [on hypnosis]. I went through 100 and 200 levels of psychology for nursing school. They didn’t touch too much on hypnotherapy. We didn’t know how life-transforming it could be for our patients. I discovered hypnotherapy for hypnobirthing. I thought hypnosis was some circus way to control people “magically”

Anxiety, fear, self esteem, being content/living in the now, physical pain, abundance blocks, self-sabatoging behaviors. I wanted to fix [these issues with hypnosis] because I, just like everybody else, deserves an abundant life free of paralyzing ego problems. Ever since having my son I am more driven than ever to grow.

I wanted to help with my anxiety so I listened to hypnobirthing while in was pregnant. That’s where it began.  I began participating in Grace’s group challenges. Then I realized it can help with EVERYTHING since the subconscious controls everything. I have helped cope with anxiety, depression, pain, chronic Lyme disease and co infections, and manage to bring in more abundance into my life. I am enrolled in Grace’s hypnotherapy program. I have been able to manifest many things into my life with the help of Grace and hypnosis to reprogram my mind.

“I loved the sound of Grace's voice and was amazed at how quickly I could feel so much happier and more confident.”

Linda Hatley

Hypnotherapy could be a powerful tool to deal with individual issues for example fears but was really more for middle class people and not the ordinary person in the street.

Confidence and shyness [were the issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].

I was first introduced to hypnotherapy when I was in my 20's by my Dad who recommended trying it out. I had been painfully shy as a child and always felt lacking in confidence and wanted to overcome this now I was an adult. I had one session and although I really enjoyed feeling very relaxed I didn't go back. The hypnotherapist gave me cassette tape which I still have, to listen to for relaxation which I used for a while to help me sleep but then put away in a drawer where it stayed. Many years passed and about a year ago I discovered Periscope and signed up thinking what a great app this would have been to show my travels around the world to my family so would begin using it now. I was having a particularly stressful time with work and life and was feeling constantly tired and overwhelmed with working long hours and never getting on top of things. I had started to lack confidence, doubt myself and be very self critical.  I began watching meditation scopes and came across one of Grace's hypno scopes and immediately felt better. I loved the sound of Grace's voice and was amazed at how quickly I could feel so much happier and more confident. I continued following and then signed up for the 21 Day Mental Bootcamp on Grace Space. I was absolutely amazed at what a difference the bootcamp made to me from day 1. Around that time through my work in children's social care I was becoming aware of several teenagers who were experience mental health issues and became aware of the prevalence of anxiety in children and teenagers and the impact this had on their lives and their families. I wondered why something as quick and effective as hypnotherapy that could be so beneficial was not offered or used. Approximately 4 months later I was attending a weekend workshop about managing finances and we were asked to discuss in a small group what we would do if money was no object. Out of the blue I suddenly found myself saying that I would like to study hypnotherapy and offer it to children and young people to help with issues they may have. I didn't even really think about it, it just came out but I felt so inspired and excited about the prospect of this. As it happened in my group was a hypnotherapist who told me that often she had children and young people referred to her but she specialised in addictions in adults and could not find other hypnotherapists who could take on working with these children so if I should definitely do it as it was so much needed. I cannot tell you the sense of excitement I felt. She invited me to a seminar with a hypnotherapist who specialised in helping people deal with pain in the body and when I learned more about his I was bowled over. I often hear Grace talk about how in her journey she could not understand how hypnotherapy was not offered to the masses to overcome their problems and I completely resonate with that. Every time I talk about hypnotherapy to others and read about it I get such a deep sense of excitement. I recently told my Dad that I was planning on training as a hypnotherapist and again I was surprised at my absolute clarity and confidence that I was going to do it.
Since finding hypnotherapy again last year I have continued to feel happier and my confidence has grown. I've taken up opportunities I would have avoided in the past even being interviewed by a journalist for a TV news item on prime time TV.

“Working with Grace Smith has saved me thousands upon thousands of dollars.”

Amber Skye Noyes

I was surprised at how deeply relaxed I was on the very first session for trying something so new. Grace’s voice was incredibly calming and serene but she spoke with direction and purpose, I truly felt guided going to that place that I always avoided but which has all the answers—deep down with within myself!

After counting down backwards with me, She would ask me questions about what I was feeling or seeing within my body and I would answer. If at any time I was unsure I told her so, and she guided me back to a place that seemed clearer with answers. She was like a spiritual tour guide to this inner place that I seldom visit but was so familiar at the same time. I was really impressed by her intuitive sense of which way to guide me “Counting down” might sounds like some scary amusement ride, but there was no anxiety, it was all very peaceful, smooth, and relaxing. Everything from the room, any other problems from my day or other things on my mind melted away and I was able to really focus on discovering answers within myself.

Even with some of the tougher, long standing painful issues I was dealing with, it strangely isn’t scary to face them when you’re deep in hypnosis. It’s just all very calm and revealing. Sometimes I’ve even laughed along with Grace, during hypnosis when seeing the odd cause of something I didn’t expect. The best part was, is that I know that while Grace guided me, those answers came from Me, and were within me the whole time.

I was able to achieve full turnarounds on several skin related issues, I regained more confidence and peace with my voice (I had some pretty serious vocal hoarseness and tension I was holding there when singing and speaking) and I have shifted many negative thought patterns that were preventing me from being the best version of myself! I feel calmer, more peaceful and forgiving to myself and others.

There are so many areas of my life that hypnosis has helped in, physical, emotional and behavioral. I constantly find myself saying to others “oh you should try hypnosis for that!.” I started doing hypnosis when there seemed to be no other answer or thing to try, so “why not/ what do I have to lose,” but now it is usually my First go-to for help with almost any issue, big or small.

There are no tricks or gimmicks, nothing to believe or not believe. At the end of the session, she counts you up and when open your eyes you see the room differently. Afterwards I’ve often remembered every word of the session and other times it’s just a good fuzzy feeling. But I always feel lighter and like a purer, kinder, more amazing version of myself.

I have recommended Grace Smith to so many people. She can talk to anyone from any walk of life. She always has a smile on her face and when you start your session, the most serene voice you could ever imagine. I have told her things I’ve never told anyone; she makes you feel safe and there is never anything except pure understanding and light beaming from her. Grace’s intuitive gifts are what truly set her apart from not just other healers but other hypnotherapists; she can sense when there is more within you to explore, and that’s what I believe creates her profound, lasting results. Nothing she says ever feels scripted because she is so in the present moment with me that she can truly ask and guide perfectly tailored to my journey that day.

Life is Short. Why would you wait another second hiding behind a habit, a belief, dealing with a physical problem that was holding you back from smiling fully everyday, from feeling less pain and more confidence. Maybe you’ll try hypnocoaching as a last resort, after you have tried everything else and have nothing else to lose.

Working with her has saved me thousands upon thousands of dollars. I had bought so many products or other material items to cover up what really needed to be addressed and If I had just done hypnocoaching…well! I would have saved not only dollars but regained lost time not feeling like my best self in so many crucial areas or my everyday life. And you can’t put a price on that!

My advice? Dive right in and save yourself the time and money and create lasting change now. There’s not a better time than right now to be the best you. The process isn’t scary, it actually makes you feel peaceful and calmer. I am so glad I’ve discovered this amazing work and would recommend it to anyone.

“I had been skeptical about hypnosis but through Grace came to know how powerful and effective it is in uncovering limitations that were holding me back from living my best life. Working with Grace has transformed my relationship with my career, my skin, my self-worth and so much more. I’m always telling people: you should try hypnosis for that! and with Close Your Eyes, Get Free, now everyone can!”
  • Smoking Cessation

“Even before my session with Grace was over, I knew I was no longer a smoker. I no longer had the mind of a smoker, nor the thoughts of a smoker. Now, instead of craving cigarettes, I crave water- I can live with that.”

Before deciding to go to Grace for hypnosis, I was a smoker for over 13 years. I had tried everything to quit smoking, including the patch, gum, and will power- nothing worked. Although I tend to be a bit of a skeptic, I decided to be open-minded and give this hypnosis thing a try.

What I liked most about this was Grace’s approach to my smoking problem. She got to the root of it all before working on the curing of my habit. By going deep to discover why I smoked and why I now had the desire to quit smoking, I was better able to eradicate the problem once and for all. I realized the reason I had difficulty quitting before was because I still had cravings, which I was gave in to.

Even before my session with Grace was over, I knew I was no longer a smoker. I no longer had the mind of a smoker, nor the thoughts of a smoker. Now, instead of craving cigarettes, I crave water- I can live with that.

I am very grateful to Grace Smith for helping me accomplish this goal and would recommend her to everyone I know.

I did not believe in [hypnosis].

I wanted many things to fix at that time but my health is the most important thing so I wanted to stop smoking for good and start living more healthy.

I tried the Four steps to mental freedom just as a curiosity to what this hypnosis really does "to me". I think what happened is that this time I really wanted to be more healthy and stop this bad habit entirely. Just do it, for real this time. I didn’t smoke much, just sometimes, but that is more than zero  :). Maybe this is why i got the Mail from Grace Smith that day; the universe wanted have me to have the best chance...The hypnosis helped me instantly and the support of Grace Smith was very important in this. I remember that she mentioned me in the next video and that was even more motivating; I never wanted to disappoint her or  myself again. Health is the most important thing anyone can have! I still struggle with shutting my mind off when listening to a hypnosis recording, but now I believe that hypnosis works and helps a lot of people. Thank You!

I thought [hypnosis] was more of a trick during events.... never thought it would really work for me.

- smoking- yes that night I had one more cigarette and after that never touched it again. EVER
- weightloss- this is so much deeper than I think the smoking was... still a work in progress but I'm now 20lbs lighter than before I got pregnant 😉
- stress reduction at work- YES!!! So many great tools- I thought I was going to lose my job, and I am getting promoted to VP of Revenue... executive level, WHAT!!

I've been thinking a lot about Grace Smith lately and how a simple Groupon has DRAMATICALLY changed my life!  It would be easier to discuss over the phone but short answer is - I went in to quit smoking and did immediately, then went back for weight loss, then trouble began at work simultaneously.  I thought for sure I was going to be fired, just negativity all around me. I hated my life, my job and I wanted out! Grace Smith taught me that... my job isn't everything, and to start manifesting my destination. I wanted to move to Austin, Texas so badly... and I kept on dreaming about it.  I had the perfect vision with me and two kids and my husband in what I thought was Austin, Texas.  Up until this point I didn't want children... but then things started to pour out of me with Grace Smith. The next thing I knew I was pregnant, and I had a boy who my husband insisted we named Austin (he was dead set against having children!!!) So talk about manifestation, but in a very different way.  Anyways, now I'm working with people outside of work for health and fitness, which is my passion and my outlet from work. I've met a wonderful girl because of Grace Smith related to BeachBody... I've made new friends and started a way new chapter in my life. AND I can't help to think that this all started with a Groupon with Grace.  [Grace Smith has] been a pivotal person in my life to help me change into wanting to lead my life by design, and not by accident.

I was very curious about [hypnosis] and had heard lots of success stories from friends who had used it to quit smoking. A very dear friend of mine, Dan, was having regular hypnosis sessions to help him with anxiety and productivity and he has always been someone whose life I admire. He told me wonderful things about his experiences with hypnotherapy so I was eager to try it as well.

I was gifted my session by my mother who thought it might help me quit smoking. I however didn't feel ready to quit at the time, so I decided to use the session to help me with my anxiety and procrastination. I wanted to be doing more to help myself be a more disciplined and successful musician.

I only had one session in person with Grace and it remains (sadly) the only live hypnosis session I've yet had, but it was such an eye-opening experience that I truly consider it the beginning of a shift in my life; I am only now beginning to realize the magnitude of. Meeting Grace, being in the same room with her - I felt as if I was in the presence of an angel. There was something so magnificently warm and genuine about [Grace’s] energy that made me feel so safe and full of possibility. I knew that she, like my friend Dan who inspired me to try hypnotherapy, was someone who I wanted to be more like. Being in trance was such a delicious feeling it, I remember feeling pleasantly stoned the entire day afterwards. I initially experienced a delightful boost in my discipline with working on my music and writing. Unfortunately life got hectic and I never made it back in for follow-up sessions. However I stayed in touch with Grace Smith through her Grace Notes emails and my interest in hypnosis has only grown over time. When I received an email about potentially enrolling in her certification program, I felt it as a calling. The moment I decided to do it, it was as if a giant weight I hadn't realized I had been carrying was lifted off my shoulders and I saw so clearly this path to the future I wanted for myself and the means to help people and society as a whole in a way I've felt desperate to do. Since beginning my studies and practicing hypnosis on my own on a nearly daily basis, I have successfully quit smoking, played the best shows of my career as a singer, transformed my yoga practice (and my body!), and am in the healthiest relationship of my life. I cannot wait to see where this discipline takes me as I look back and see how much my life has already changed since hypnosis became a part of it.

[My thoughts on hypnosis were that it] was used to remember repressed traumatic memories.

Social Anxiety [was the issue I wanted hypnosis to fix]-It was challenging to be around groups of people.

About 4 years ago, I had one hypnosis session with a local practitioner in Costa Rica to get some insight into an area of past trauma. I really liked the experience but then I didn’t think much of it afterwards. Last year, a friend had Grace Smith as a guest speaker during her online summit. As I listened to Grace share her story, I was instantly hooked.

I signed up for her offer and begun the 21 day hypnosis bootcamp. I loved it. I followed the program daily for the 21 days and felt so much more calm and connected. I knew I wanted to continue this practice. I already had a daily meditation practice but Grace’s hypnosis felt much more focused. I began to see more and more changes. I had social anxiety and so I really was interested in the Ultimate Anxiety Relief program. As I was listening to these session daily I begun to think about how beneficial they would be in helping people I knew.

I have taught Pilates off and on for a number of years. With the changes I had experienced in my own personal growth I felt like I wanted something more holistic for my students. I also practice reiki, so I felt hypnosis was the modality that would round out my other healing techniques. The mind~body~spirit combination of hypnosis, pilates and reiki feels complete to me. When Grace offered the ability to study online to become a Certified Hypnotherapist only a few months after I began formulating this idea I knew I wanted to pursue the study of hypnosis. I am so grateful I did. It is transformational.

I had no idea what hypnosis was. I meditated on a regular basis though, and was familiar with the concept, and workings, of the subconscious mind, so hypnosis made perfect sense as a way to try to access that part of the mind in a more direct way

I have a terrible habit of getting really excited about something, starting it 100% full on, then getting overwhelmed (which I convince myself is boredom or disinterest) and quitting.

I had started weight lifting, and was loving it, and I really wanted to improve and excel. But I noticed I began to have a common thought pattern where I was beginning to come up with reasons why continuing wasn't worth the time. "Because I would never get anywhere with it, because I wasn't going to be strong enough, because I would probably never be able to learn the technique anyway, because I should be doing other things with my time" and so on and so on. I'm famous for this pattern. I always lose that desire to follow through, and then I move onto something new, and just repeat the process. In my hypnosis session with Grace, she very quickly identified the source of this pattern (as did I once she began asking "breakthrough" questions) as a desire to have some sort of connection with my father, who I had not had a relationship with, but desperately (although subconsciously) just wanted to connect with. He is someone who lives his life with this exact pattern of behavior, even down to starting, and abandoning, a family. It really was a revelation for me, and Grace gave me the mantra, "I finish what I start, I keep my word, I am so rebellious" within my hypnosis, which I listened to each day, and repeated the mantra each time I walked up to the bar, or started to learn any new lift.  And for the first time I can remember, I have completely followed through with something, and more than that, I have excelled, and even competed.  I used hypnosis to get me through the competition process as well, which is a whole other success story because not only did it involve performing in front of a crowd of people (without fainting), but it involved wearing shorts...which is something I have been unable to do, without having an all out panic attack, for over 20 years 🙂

I used to think hypnosis was scary, that it was like giving up your subconscious mind to another person, as the Hollywood movies portray. I was always under the impression that I would be fully unconscious during the session, but it's nothing like that!

I had awful, almost debilitating social anxiety for around 2 years, and a milder form of it for years before that. I wasn't able to make new friends, I could barely ever go to a store for fear of interaction with sales people. It was very difficult for me to communicate with other adults at work. It had recently become hard to even talk to my family! I wanted to feel comfortable having a casual conversation with people and be able to chase my dreams without anxiety!

Before I started using Grace Space hypnosis, I felt trapped by social anxiety. I hadn't made friends for a few years, and being pretty fresh out of high school, I didn't really have any of my old friends around. It got worse as time went on; I couldn't go to stores or make doctor's appointments because I was so anxiety-ridden about the interaction. It got to the point where speaking with my family was difficult and I was avoiding them as much as I could. I knew I had to do SOMETHING when I was avoiding my dad and it was impacting our relationship. I signed up for Grace Smith's anxiety challenge, and before it began Grace offered an anxiety bundle of 3 anxiety recordings for $20. I bought it and began listening to all of them, but I really focused on the social anxiety recording. After listening to it nightly for about a week, I began noticing that I could talk to people. It was the most AMAZING feeling. I had no idea how much I was missing out! My life has improved tenfold. I got the job I wanted and desperately needed, and was even able to ask for more money for more work during the interview! I am now following my dreams and making friends every single day. I'm so happy with the results that I joined Grace Space and began  Grace Smith’s hynotherapy school! I want to spread this gift and give every person I meet the ability to live their best lives! Thank you Grace Smith!

I had a wonderful and powerful experience with hypnosis to stop a terrible addiction to diet soda. I have basically been on a “slow drip” of diet soda for 20 years. I was aware of the danger and toxic nature of artificial sweeteners but I was unable to stop on my own. I was at my wits end so I decided to try hypnosis.

My Mother had used hypnosis many years ago to quit smoking and had success beating a 40+ year addiction with one session. When I met Grace I felt instantly at ease. [Grace Smith] is kind and also very knowledgeable. During my first session, she provided me with a very powerful image that helped me really see how horrible diet soda is and the damage it can do. From that moment I knew I was done. She also provided me the tools to take what I learned in my session and continue the positive reinforcement on my own.

As of today, it has been 6 weeks since I have had any diet soda or artificial sweeteners. I’ve replaced them with water and have no desire to return to that old disgusting habit. I feel great, my skin looks better, and I have more energy. I’ve even begun to experience weight loss too. I feel such a sense of freedom and calm with each session, and I would absolutely recommend Grace Smith to anyone struggling with a habit or behavior that is keeping them from getting to their best self. Worth every penny! Thank you so much Grace!

I had used hypnosis before as an aid to relaxation, so I did have an understanding of it, though never specific to my performance in sport.

The challenge for me was competition nerves; my sport of freediving depends upon being in the most relaxed state as possible to get the maximum breath hold during dives. I wanted hypnosis to get me into the zone, focused and very relaxed before my dives.

After my session with Grace Smith, she made a recording specific for a pre-dive relaxation, I used this before my dives. Also I had a recording of the session where we addressed key issues and techniques, mostly on my perception of challenges particularly towards the end of the dives where it is physically and mentally quite tough. My difference in my training was evident and my performances reflected that. I competed at the freediving world championships and was very pleased with my dives. I found my session with Grace Smith so helpful, she is a great coach and will use the techniques and recordings for my competitions in the future.

I was curious [about hypnosis] but had no idea the profound effect it would have on my life.

[I wanted to address] sleep, anxiety, procrastination.  I am working on my own business and working outside the home part-time, and I'd really like to build my confidence and reduce my anxiety and build the courage to be as successful as I can be!

So for a few years, I've focused on sleeping 8 hours a night. Trying to be in bed by 11 and up around 7. Some days it's a little less, some days it's more, but I know that one of the keys to better health is a good night's sleep. I was having the craziest stress dreams. They were always the same content. I'm alone in the restaurant, (which isn't ever really the restaurant, but a field, a hotel, a golf course, etc) and everyone needs a server and coffee and I'm the only one there, there not enough coffee cups and there is no coffee made. Those of you in the service industry know exactly what I'm talking about.


Well, a few weeks ago my friend Rebekah Borucki introduced me to Grace Smith. I signed up for her Grace Space program and starting using most of the therapies, but made a point of listening to "Think Happy" and I downloaded her app which has a SLEEP track. Every night just before I go to bed I listen to that SLEEP track and I realized I AM NO LONGER HAVING STRESS DREAMS. It took me about a week to realize they had STOPPED completely. I have just had the longest work week in the past year, some nights only getting 5 hours of sleep, but STILL no crazy stress dreams.


I worked three times the hours I normally do, no weird dreams and every night I slept like a baby. My first day off in 7 days and I Feel GREAT!

“It was the first time that I realized that first grade year could have been the kickstart to my nail biting/picking problem. I saw myself in hypnosis doing the exact thing I have had a habit of doing. It was eye-opening.”

I knew nothing about hypnosis before starting, and only knew of "stage hypnosis," and wasn't sure how it was going to work in a therapy setting. I was open to trying and had no preconceived notions beforehand. I was actually hoping it was more like "magic" and a quick-fix. My friend's mom went to two hypnotherapy sessions and quit smoking cold-turkey. I was hoping the same would happen with nail biting.

My initial problem I wanted to deal with was nail biting/picking. My nails and cuticles were becoming so painful and destroyed from picking them. It was soon discovered that it wasn't really only the aesthetic reason of how my nails looked, but getting more to the root of the problem for why I was doing it - and that was stress and anxiety (mostly from my job).

Back in winter of 2012, after having been living in Manhattan for 9 months, I saw a LivingSocial deal for a Hypnotherapist session. I had never done hypnotherapy before and truly knew nothing about it.. except that my friend's mother quit smoking after only a session or two. I had something that had been on my mind for years, but more recently and within the entire year of 2012 had gotten pretty bad - I wanted to break my disgusting habit of nail and cuticle biting/picking.

I have bit my nails for as long as I can remember, and when I was 16, my mom said, "I bit my nails until I was 16. You'll stop this year." I didn't. At 21 years old as a Junior in college I said to myself "enough is enough.. my cuticles are dry and gross and my thumbs are sore and I sometimes pick at the skin until it bleeds, and this is not attractive and it's nasty and painful and I'm done."  I didn't stop. So by 24 years old in 2012, after I had been working in my first post-college job for over a year and my job itself was extremely stressful already, I felt like I needed to try something new and instead of spending money on another Livingsocial restaurant deal, invest in something for myself and my own well-being.

I saw Grace's picture and read a little bit about Awaken NYC and decided to buy the e-deal and commit to a 6PM session on a random weeknight to see if one session with a pretty stranger could wipe away a quarter of a century worth of short stubby fingernails and straggly cuticles.

I remember being SO nervous my first session.. asked to used the bathroom beforehand because I was scared I'd have to pee while in hypnosis and I'd pee myself or something crazy. I remember Grace explaining the difference of stage hypnosis versus what she does, and that I won't wake up and have experienced a true blackout where I don't remember anything (and secretly she had made me dance around like a chicken or something) but instead, we are targeting the subconscious mind and I'd be experiencing a slight dream-state, etc. After my first session, I felt really comfortable with Grace Smith more than anything. I saw her as like an older-sister type.. and she also had an eerie resemblance to my goofy friend and roommate at the time, so I felt ever more connected to her. 🙂

I had about 8 sessions with Grace in Awaken NYC over the course of the next few months, and about my 4th session in, we had a really awesome breakthrough. Grace had me under in hypnosis and she prompted me to regress backwards in time. She had me try to recall my earliest memory, and then from there to a memory when I was a little girl... not a baby. And what flowed to me next was incredible. For the first time in about 15-20 years, I really accounted my experience as a 6-year old first grader in elementary school. Under hypnosis, I could remember my outfits, my classroom, my teacher, my classmates, etc. As Grace asked questions and we talked about that early memory, I described the overall experience of that year. **(Side note: as an adult, when I was about 20, sometimes I talked to my mom and dad about that first year. My recollection is that I had this great group of girlfriends, and it was fun, but my teacher was mean. That's really it. My mom, on the other hand, thinks I was "kind of depressed that year." She says, "You would come home from school, and just sit on the couch and watch TV. And your only friend on our street was this weird boy across the street that you would sometimes go outside and play with. and I would ask you, 'Jenny, how's school?' and you'd said, 'it's fine.'  but you really lost the life in you and you didn't smile much. And you would say how mean Mrs. Cottone was." THIS BLEW MY MIND! I didn't know I was "depressed" or "not my bubbly, usual self"... how sad at 6 years old to be perceived as "down" and depressed by your parents!)

SO... I knew of this but we hadn't talked about it in years and I never really tried to go back and remember that first-grade year. But under hypnosis that session, I was talking about that year - the classroom, the teacher, getting in trouble for talking in class too much, etc. And when I was describing one incident where I remember getting called out in the middle of class and yelled at by my teacher because she thought I was talking to this girl Kate (when really Kate leaned over and asked me a question about a book I had on my desk, and I was just answering her). Grace said, "Good Jen.. this is great detail. Now tell me.. what do you see? What are you physically doing at this time? Where are your hands?" and I saw myself, embarrassed and cowered, getting yelled at by my mean Russian teacher, with my hands under my desk, rapidly picking my fingernails, out of nervousness, stress and anxiety. It was the first time that I realized that first grade year could have been the kickstart to my nail biting/picking problem. I saw myself in hypnosis doing the exact thing I have had a habit of doing. It was eye-opening. And from there, Grace and I would try to get to the root of when I pick my nails, in what environment, under what circumstances, what times of day, etc. so that I could try and 1) be more aware of it and 2) use some techniques to try and stop.


Over the course of the next year of so, we spoke pretty frequently, and my relationship with Grace expanded from just my nail-biting issue, to all of the other things she is so knowledgeable about. We spoke about life, and meditation and Past Life regressions, and the meaning of life. She ended up moving her office out of Manhattan, and I ended up leaving Manhattan December of 2013, but I continued to try and use daily mediation to stay calm and less anxious. I gained the courage to quit my stressful miserable job, leave the city that was overcrowded, expensive and making me anxious, and moved home to South Jersey in January 2014. I changed my city and my job to better help me get mentally and spiritually healthier.

Fast-forward 2.5 years... am I still biting my nails? No. (Because I keep them constantly manicured with gel). Am I still picking the gel off of my nails when my manicure starts to chip every 2 weeks? Yes. Once the gel is picked off, do I pick at my cuticles? Sometimes. Is it exacerbated by boredom or stress? Yes. Do I tend to do it more after a few cocktails? Also yes. But are there weeks at a time where my nails are healthy and growing and manicured and I don't touch them at all? YES. My point is that 8-10 hypnotherapy sessions over 3 years ago did not "cure me" or my 20+ year old long habit. If I had stuck with it, and really committed would it have? Maybe. But hypnotherapy isn't magic. It takes time, and patience and practice.. and takes a lot of self-talk and self-identification of the root of the problem. I wasn't "cured" from occasionally making my nails nasty and short and painful... but I did find clarity in what was triggering that for me. I recognized that my job and living in NYC was not good for me anymore... it was too stressful and my job was making me miserable and anxious and I needed to make a change. That change came after moving home in 2014, and then moving again into Philadelphia with my boyfriend in 2015… and working in a new job... and I have been the happiest and calmest and most alive I've been in years.

I wasn’t too familiar with [hypnosis] prior to hearing [Grace Smith] on Periscope and feeling so relaxed at my stressful job.

It was an outlet for me to decompress and not lose my shit.

Mine has been very recent. Danny J created her LifeAF program; which I desperately needed. I’ve had this belief that I was always going to be broke and that I was dumb. I never felt as smart as my friends, peers, that I had this limiting belief that I couldn’t be successful because of this. Low and behold, we start going through the course, and she did the Ho’oponopono and it changed me. I didn’t realize what I was holding onto. Then I thought, I have to do this on a couple of my girlfriends who were abused and lost their mom suddenly to help them recover and heal. I didn’t know I had it in me. I’ve created a few guideded meditations for anxiety, releasing your blocks to move forward in your career and conception. I’ve been using visuals and some suggestions, so in a sense I was doing a smart portion of hypnosis and guided meditation. This was a mere six weeks ago. I started looking at [Grace Smith’s] Hypnotherapy School weeks ago, and I put myself on the list. Knowing you’ve just had Patrick I didn’t expect one to open up. I got a bonus at work, so I scheduled Lasik for my eyes. Surgery was scheduled for the 6th, but it got rescheduled. That next week you opened up school. I knew it was a sign of what I needed to do! I have visions of going to different colleges and speaking with men and women who have been abused/raped for hypnosis. I can only imagine how many people are affected daily, and they are too afraid to see treatment.

“I am calmer, happier, and more centered than I can ever remember feeling before. I feel incredibly light, positive, and at peace.”

I didn't really see [hypnosis] as effective.

I have been looking for additional tools to cope with my general stress and anxiety, and to help me deal with a toxic relationship in my life. I am also looking to improve my health and I have a weight loss goal.

After listening to Grace's endlessly fascinating interview on Katie Dalebout's podcast, I listened to the three-minute stress relief hypnosis later that day and was awed by how calm I felt. Before picking up my younger children that day, I parked my car and listened to the 10 minute relaxation recording. I felt amazingly calm, and handled my chaotic afternoon with four kids much more peacefully than usual. Later that evening, my husband tried to dredge up an old argument, and instead of taking the bait, I found myself shifting gears and responding with complete calm and ease. It wasn't until the next day, when I listened to the 10 minute relaxation recording again, that I realized there was a part about "angry words being cleaned away". It had worked perfectly for me! On a similar note, before listening to the recording for a second time, I wrote in my journal, mentioning that the only word that I could use to describe my feeling was "clean". Again, I didn't realize until later that the word "clean" was actually part of the hypnosis. I became a member later that day and embarked on the Weight Loss Intensive. I also continue to listen to the relaxation recordings every day. I am calmer, happier, and more centered than I can ever remember feeling before. I feel incredibly light, positive, and at peace. I feel so happy knowing I have these recordings to turn to every day, when I feel a dip in mood, or energy, or a food craving. I am only on Day 7 of the Weight Loss Intensive, but I have stuck to my nutrition and exercise program with very little effort - it just feels right, and I have been struggling with these issues for a few years. My experience with hypnosis has been brief, but amazing, and I will definitely be a lifelong member of the site.

I had tried [hypnosis] before for test anxiety and had success.
General feelings of unhappiness/knowing I was meant for more but not sure what/lots of procrastination [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].
Success is such an understatement! Hypnosis with Grace literally UNLOCKED MY LIFE - and I'm not even halfway through! In one of our phone sessions, we were focusing on my inability to focus and follow through on a task (studying mostly but also little things like laundry). I had a huge to-do list but felt paralyzed and as a result nothing was getting done. We talked a lot about this and then jumped into a hypnosis which started off general enough and then unexpectedly plunged me into a past life. It was surreal. I looked around me and could see the terrain as clear as day. I could see and recognize the faces around me, though they were not the faces of the people in my current life. I could smell the smells of the area I was in, I could reach down and touch my "clothing" and really feel what it felt like. It was animal furs, head to toe, which I have never worn and yet could really feel them. Grace walked me through a specific scenario and ultimately allowed me to travel to heaven - or my life between lives - where I was able to ask specific questions of some sort of council. There just isn't time or space here to express what the experience was like and whether you believe in past lives or not (or whether it was a past life or perhaps my subconscious' way of opening up to me) isn't what's important. The profound and instantaneous change in my life is what is important. Things that had plagued me for years (lifetimes even) were undone. My life opened up and possibilities became clear. One session literally changed the course of my life. I feel different on a cellular level. My mind and my heart are expanded. It leaves me thirsting for more, loving me, loving my life more and yet excited for expansion and what's to come.
From her second survey:
Before I started working with Grace, I was a little skeptical about hypnosis - and also nervous. It seemed like it could be a little dangerous giving someone access to the deepest recesses of my mind.
I was suffering from some pretty severe social anxiety (and to a lesser extent, driving anxiety). If we were invited to get together with friends (even friends I had enjoyed spending time with on other occasions), I would feel so much stress about going that I would often make myself sick. My stomach would hurt, I would feel nauseous and my heart would race just at the thought of going. And it didn't end there. If I did end up getting together with friends, afterward I would obsess endlessly about the event. Did I say or do something stupid? Did so-and-so like me/not like me? Did I embarrass myself/my husband/my kids? It was a vicious cycle. Enter the Grace Space Anxiety Challenge. I stuck with the challenge every single day for 21 days and what an amazing difference. Not only did I feel incrementally better after each session, but I found myself naturally applying the things I learned throughout the day. I was able to calm myself down when I started to get that same anxious feeling and actually start to not only look forward to getting together with friends, but enjoy myself during our time together and now worry endlessly for days after about what people thought of me. The relief from this level of stress is palpable! I am incredibly thankful for the changes I was able to make (and the processes I can continue to use) thanks to hypnosis.

I was dubious, but hopeful [about hypnosis]. I have meditated for years and I know the benefits of meditation. I am also a very spiritual person, so I was hopeful that I could relax and experience something new.

First, I wanted to stop eating JUNK FOOD. I am healthy, fit and knew that that was not something I wanted in my body, but I seem to have no control over the cravings. Second, I wanted to work on de-stressing and having fears about getting sick. I have a high stress job that I enjoy, but I know that the stress was affecting other areas of my life and I didn't like it. Because we lost a child to cancer, I was, for the first time, afraid of becoming sick. Third, as I get ready to retire and pursue artistic endeavors as part of my retirement, I wanted to learn to let go of my "get it done now" attitude so that the creative and compassionate side of me would open up and flourish.

Goal 1--dropping junk food. Well, this has been an issue for me FOREVER. After the first session with Grace, I began to see my craving thought process interrupted. I wouldn't just jump into a box of cookies. Instead I would think about what was triggering that craving, and perhaps meditate through it. Now the first week, I did have some sweets, but not as many and only one day. That's a success right there! I listened to our session several times during the week---sometimes when I was out on a run. That was a great combination---healthy activity supported by healthy choices. The second session Grace [Smith] created an element of aversion---saying that junk food was poison and helping me to imagine how I needed real food from the earth to nourish my active and stressed body. I have a stubborn little girl streak and this little girl was part of the narrative of my hypnosis. I was going to help myself by helping my stubborn little girl show herself (and myself) self-compassion by eating yummy, whole foods and throwing away the junk food. In my hypnosis, I cleaned out all the junk food in my house. When I got home that evening---I cleared out all my junk food!!! Since that second session, I haven't had any junk food. It's not that I haven't had cravings--instead, I make a loving healthy choice for myself. All this great behavior is happening while at work, I am working 15 hour days---very busy stressful days. But by nourishing my body well---I am managing the stress and we hadn't even done the stress hypnosis yet!!! When we focused on de-stressing, I was then able to destress on command based on a suggestion made during a session. So despite crazy crazy work hours, I was happy, not overly tired and not eating junk food, which used to be my comfort food!! I listen to the sessions that Grace [Smith] tapes for me and I hear new things every time I listen, so it doesn't feel repetitive. We just started goal 3--opening up my channel of creativity. But already, I am seeing common things differently--clouds are not just clouds. The colors of flowers seem to vibrate. And I am thinking about how I want my first days of art in retirement to be--being still, listening and observing. Sitting with my tools--appreciating what I can do with them. Looking quietly at things that inspire me. Observing normal things like cars going by and seeing the energy  in them and allowing myself to imagine how I can become a part of those items--and what it feels like. Suspending my highly active rational brain so that my creative energy flows from me and into me. I have more sessions left and I cannot wait to see how all these practices inter-relate and intertwine.  One benefit I didn't anticipate, but one that I cherish, is that the self-compassion is expanding my awareness of others and leading me to be more compassionate in my dealing with others and with my environment. I try to smile at everyone--and I am finding that I am attracted to positive energy, confidence and love and I naturally seem to push out the poisonous negative energy. That's a thrilling side benefit for me!!!

How can this really work? [That’s what I thought about hypnosis before working with you.]

At first it was weight loss, then I signed up for a Grace Space account so I could access the library of hypnosis. I was gaining and gaining weight and thought this may be due to my eating or addiction to sugar. I wanted to get healthy again.

I have done several types of hypnosis, YouTube has tons of Grace recordings. I have been able to get to sleep. I have given up sugar. I have created a calm space for myself so there is no more anxiety. When I get an email it is like Grace is speaking to me that day; it’s like she knows exactly what I am going through. Her calming voice sits in my head when I encounter any chaotic episodes in life. I had dealt with a bad manager and while dealing with this her videos, voice and calmness helped me not allow him to take over my life. I am in a challenge now for money, I have been able to dig deep into why I think what I think about money and to let those bad feelings go and live free from the chains that were placed when I was younger.

I did not know anything about [hypnosis], but, probably [I was] skeptical.
I was actually googling guided meditations and happened upon [Grace Smith]!

Severe depression and anxiety brought on by a sudden estrangement of my son [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].

It is hard to write about it without crying and feeling all of the pain I was in.  I found Grace on a Youtube of Grace Smith TV. Several times a day for weeks and weeks I did the self-hypnosis, repeating the line "I am safe. I am calm. I choose to be here".  In reality I didn't want to be here and I had urges and thoughts of suicide. I was actually mad each morning that my eyes would open and I was still alive. I really wanted to die.  I would put on my headphones, listen to Grace's soothing voice and repeat her words.  It calmed me down and grounded me. Grace helped me through the pain and my suicidal thoughts.  She really saved my life.  She gave me something I could do to help myself and it really worked!!! It's been 2 years and I CHOOSE TO BE HERE!  Thanks Grace!!!

I didn't really have a strong preconceived notion of hypnosis. The word did, however, bring to mind an image of a somewhat spooky man with a pendulum saying "You are getting very sleepy..". So, without having given much thought to hypnosis, that image still resided in my mind.

I have experienced mild to moderate depression and anxiety at various times throughout my life. My depression seemed to be getting more persistent and deeper, and it was harder to find motivation. A few months ago, I made the decision to take steps to heal from past trauma. I realized I can no longer allow the past to hold me back.

My success story is very much a work in progress. I have been a Grace Space member for about a month. (Though I have benefited greatly from Grace's relaxation recordings for longer than that.) Ultimate Anxiety Relief has been amazingly helpful. I feel more calm, centered and confident. I'm finding it easier to keep up with beneficial habits, such as a regular yoga and meditation practice.

I actually didn't give [hypnosis] much thought. I just called it body centered therapy, where you tune into your body for accessing unconscious hidden parts of yourself.

Did you only want stories in which Grace Smith was the catalyst for change? For me, hypnosis was the first step in accessing hidden trauma and pain that conventional psychotherapy could not reach.

Physical pain brought on by emotional trauma, tension held in my body.

It was 2001, I had just gotten out of a divorce of an arranged marriage of one year and a half. The emotional trauma was immense, but I had nothing to say as I lay listlessly in the therapist’s chair. I couldn't feel anything besides for physical pain choking me and pressing down on me. I felt I was laying beneath a tree trunk that had fallen on top of me. With a help of a therapist who I had gone to for a Chinese form of accu-pressure but was dabbling in hypnosis, I began to ask my body what it was trying to tell me, and in this way I began to face the emotional pain that I was holding in my body. Laying down closing my eyes, and tuning in to my body was the only way I had to access my deep emotional pain. If I had not learned to do this, but had relied on psychologists, and medication, I shudder to think of where I would be today. Accessing my unconscious in this way opened me up to experience all of who I am in a way that has filled me with so much joy and love, I could never have imagined before.

I was thinking about trying [hypnosis], but never got around to actually doing it.

I have a lot of traumas and I suffer from both mental health issues as well as addiction.

Since I began receiving Grace Notes, I've been able to think more clearly and get in touch with myself more. I wake up every morning and thank God for another chance to make life better. I look forward to the day ahead now knowing that there is hope. With the help of these Grace Notes, I'm able to focus on the positive things in life rather than all the negative. I'm moving forward in my recovery, I'm stable on my medication and I've made a few true friends. I'm open to growing now. My hope now is to try hypnosis at some point and possibly stop dwelling on my past trauma so much.

I thought you would be "put under" and be under the control of the therapist....Or totally hokey and wouldn't work at all.

Anxiety and anger/mood swings [were the issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis].
I do not like the the way I "behave", and it makes me feel awful for myself and those around me.

I am a stay-at-home mom in my late forties.  I had one 90 minute breakthrough session with Grace Smith to deal with some increasing anxiety.  I had no prior experience with hypnotherapy. Five years ago, I attended traditional psychotherapy for a year.  The sessions felt good while I was there, but I was seeing no lasting results.

Grace was very forthcoming and honest about what hypnotherapy would and would not do.  I wasn't to expect overnight 100% resolution to my issues. It would probably take several days to see any reduction in my symptoms.

The day after my session, I was in a situation that would instantly trigger a medium amount of anxiety.  I normally feel a sharp energy right in my heart, with a quickened heart and breath rate. I felt absolutely nothing in my heart, no quickness of breath. It was unbelievable.  It didn't even realize the extent I had been living with anxiety until it wasn't there.  I actually tried to recreate the feeling because the absence of my anxiety felt so strange.  It was a breakthrough moment that I needed help, and hypnotherapy could help me.

I also noticed I wasn't as reactive when things didn't go as planned with my husband and teenagers.  We had a minor incident that I normally would have exploded. I had a very calm reaction with no internal anxiety, and I completely moved on.  My reaction was so far from my norm, that my family thought, wow, she is really really upset, and we better steer clear. The changes I was experiencing where quick, drastic, and noticeable to everyone around.

Although I still have some anxiety, the intensity and frequency are dramatically reduced.  With hypnosis, unlike traditional therapy, I see improvements and lasting changes well after my sessions with Grace Smith.

I didn't know much about hypnosis other than it may make you relax and the stage hypnosis jokes I had heard.

I was unhappy because I didn't make choices based on my desires and my marriage was falling apart.

I found Grace Smith in 2012 from a Living Social deal when I was at a point in my life where I realized the success I had achieved was not leading me to joy in life.  My marriage was falling apart heading to divorce, I was experiencing sexual identity questioning, my work was being affected and I was beginning to realize I had buried my own wishes for the sake of what others expected or needed from me.  On the outside, life looked amazing; I had a great career that paid well in a fortune 100 company, I had a handsome and hardworking husband and we had just bought our car and lovely apartment together. On the inside, I was withering away and eventually all it took was one little fracture in my marriage to realize my foundation was built on what others wanted and I no longer wanted to live that way.  


Grace Smith guided me through this time in private sessions to uncover most of my own blocks and limitations, helped me uncover and heal the wounds of a childhood impacted by alcoholic physical abuse that caused many of my fears and blocks.  I hadn’t realized how much pain I had buried and how I had let that stop me from living because I was so busy trying to keep myself safe, small and limited.  [Grace Smith] led me to explore beyond that fear, to the real me, my real wishes and desires. It took commitment, on my part and hers, and we both showed up consistently.  I started with her as a crumbling person, in a job that paid well but left me empty, a marriage where I was crying for genuine connection and attention and a life that I didn’t even recognize anymore.  


With Grace Smith, I began my path to where I am now in 2016. My life began to transform immediately in the first few weeks to have much more awareness and inner strength which supported me in getting my work back on track.  I survived emotionally, mentally and financially through my divorce.  In private sessions and group hypnosis, I continued on to explore other areas of what allowed me to experience joy and began to really feel alive.  I journey around the world, sometimes alone! I realized the profound impact hypnosis had on my life experience, I knew it was to be a part of my own personal calling, so in 2014 I began my certification to train with Grace to become a Hypnotist myself.  Today, I absolutely love every day in my life. Four years after my journey began with Grace, at my own pace and time, I left my corporate job and began working as a Hypno Soul Coach using hypnosis for guiding and healing others and blending that with my passion of spiritual energy work with the Chakras.  I have healed so much trauma between my father, who was my childhood abuser, and have cleared the pain that was there to reveal a loving supportive father-daughter relationship which I am incredibly grateful for.


I continued to follow Grace on Periscope live broadcasts and use Grace Space where her hypnosis recordings helped me to expand even further and do my own broadcasts and provide amazing support whenever I need to access it.  I have a budding relationship with the rest of my family after many years of separation and pain.  I have an amazing partner in my life who supports me, encourages me and loves me the way I know I am meant to be loved and I now have the strength, capacity and courage to love him the way he needs.  I have explored so much of the world and continue to expand my experiences and my skills based on what makes me feel alive. Grace Smith was the first person to guide me in my journey to living life this amazingly and I am so excited for the many ways she is supporting the world.  I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing, supportive and loving guide, teacher and friend.  She has had a tremendous impact in my life and I’m grateful to witness her love and amazing skills being shared with the world!

I had no idea what [hypnosis] was. I mean I knew sort of, but I didn't think it was a real thing that worked. I thought of someone actually being hypnotized like when someone dangles something in front of their face and says "you are getting very sleeeepy..."

My anxiety and trauma [were issues I wanted to fix], because it is sometimes debilitating.

Addiction, Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, and Fear [were issues I wanted to fix with hypnosis]. I survived a very violent home invasion sexual assault by a masked man years ago. The events of that day changed my brain. I suddenly lived in constant fear and trusted no one. I developed a substance abuse problem as I tried to escape my fear and an eating disorder. My perspective on the world had completely shifted and I felt so stuck.
Six years ago, I finally made the decision to get clean and sober. Through recovery I began seeking out more ways to heal. Discovering Grace Smith's hypnotherapy was absolutely incredible for my healing journey! I started focusing on the PTSD since I still suffered an occasional flashback or flare up of fear. I began listening to a Grace Space hypno recording every single day. They were between 3-40 minutes. It became a very sacred part of my practice and I could feel the shifts in the way my brain was working. Her recordings were like next-level meditations. The benefits lasted beyond the recording itself and the changes in my neural pathways has had a lasting effect. I'm calmer, more centered, I have over 6 years of recovery with no cravings, and I haven't experienced a PTSD effect in months!
Today I have my dream jobs as a professional Singer and a Motivational Speaker! (www.blazebell.com www.blazeanderic.com) I'm a present and healthy wife and a Mom to 2 bright kids! Thanks in part to Grace Smith's work I am now able to help others heal in the ways that I have. I am eternally grateful!

I had tried [hypnosis] before for test anxiety and had success.
General feelings of unhappiness/knowing I was meant for more but not sure what/lots of procrastination [were issues I wanted to address with hypnosis].
Success is such an understatement! Hypnosis with Grace literally UNLOCKED MY LIFE - and I'm not even halfway through! In one of our phone sessions, we were focusing on my inability to focus and follow through on a task (studying mostly but also little things like laundry). I had a huge to-do list but felt paralyzed and as a result nothing was getting done. We talked a lot about this and then jumped into a hypnosis which started off general enough and then unexpectedly plunged me into a past life. It was surreal. I looked around me and could see the terrain as clear as day. I could see and recognize the faces around me, though they were not the faces of the people in my current life. I could smell the smells of the area I was in, I could reach down and touch my "clothing" and really feel what it felt like. It was animal furs, head to toe, which I have never worn and yet could really feel them. Grace walked me through a specific scenario and ultimately allowed me to travel to heaven - or my life between lives - where I was able to ask specific questions of some sort of council. There just isn't time or space here to express what the experience was like and whether you believe in past lives or not (or whether it was a past life or perhaps my subconscious' way of opening up to me) isn't what's important. The profound and instantaneous change in my life is what is important. Things that had plagued me for years (lifetimes even) were undone. My life opened up and possibilities became clear. One session literally changed the course of my life. I feel different on a cellular level. My mind and my heart are expanded. It leaves me thirsting for more, loving me, loving my life more and yet excited for expansion and what's to come.
From her second survey:
Before I started working with Grace, I was a little skeptical about hypnosis - and also nervous. It seemed like it could be a little dangerous giving someone access to the deepest recesses of my mind.
I was suffering from some pretty severe social anxiety (and to a lesser extent, driving anxiety). If we were invited to get together with friends (even friends I had enjoyed spending time with on other occasions), I would feel so much stress about going that I would often make myself sick. My stomach would hurt, I would feel nauseous and my heart would race just at the thought of going. And it didn't end there. If I did end up getting together with friends, afterward I would obsess endlessly about the event. Did I say or do something stupid? Did so-and-so like me/not like me? Did I embarrass myself/my husband/my kids? It was a vicious cycle. Enter the Grace Space Anxiety Challenge. I stuck with the challenge every single day for 21 days and what an amazing difference. Not only did I feel incrementally better after each session, but I found myself naturally applying the things I learned throughout the day. I was able to calm myself down when I started to get that same anxious feeling and actually start to not only look forward to getting together with friends, but enjoy myself during our time together and now worry endlessly for days after about what people thought of me. The relief from this level of stress is palpable! I am incredibly thankful for the changes I was able to make (and the processes I can continue to use) thanks to hypnosis.

“Working with Grace Smith has saved me thousands upon thousands of dollars.”

I was surprised at how deeply relaxed I was on the very first session for trying something so new. Grace’s voice was incredibly calming and serene but she spoke with direction and purpose, I truly felt guided going to that place that I always avoided but which has all the answers—deep down with within myself!

After counting down backwards with me, She would ask me questions about what I was feeling or seeing within my body and I would answer. If at any time I was unsure I told her so, and she guided me back to a place that seemed clearer with answers. She was like a spiritual tour guide to this inner place that I seldom visit but was so familiar at the same time. I was really impressed by her intuitive sense of which way to guide me “Counting down” might sounds like some scary amusement ride, but there was no anxiety, it was all very peaceful, smooth, and relaxing. Everything from the room, any other problems from my day or other things on my mind melted away and I was able to really focus on discovering answers within myself.

Even with some of the tougher, long standing painful issues I was dealing with, it strangely isn’t scary to face them when you’re deep in hypnosis. It’s just all very calm and revealing. Sometimes I’ve even laughed along with Grace, during hypnosis when seeing the odd cause of something I didn’t expect. The best part was, is that I know that while Grace guided me, those answers came from Me, and were within me the whole time.

I was able to achieve full turnarounds on several skin related issues, I regained more confidence and peace with my voice (I had some pretty serious vocal hoarseness and tension I was holding there when singing and speaking) and I have shifted many negative thought patterns that were preventing me from being the best version of myself! I feel calmer, more peaceful and forgiving to myself and others.

There are so many areas of my life that hypnosis has helped in, physical, emotional and behavioral. I constantly find myself saying to others “oh you should try hypnosis for that!.” I started doing hypnosis when there seemed to be no other answer or thing to try, so “why not/ what do I have to lose,” but now it is usually my First go-to for help with almost any issue, big or small.

There are no tricks or gimmicks, nothing to believe or not believe. At the end of the session, she counts you up and when open your eyes you see the room differently. Afterwards I’ve often remembered every word of the session and other times it’s just a good fuzzy feeling. But I always feel lighter and like a purer, kinder, more amazing version of myself.

I have recommended Grace Smith to so many people. She can talk to anyone from any walk of life. She always has a smile on her face and when you start your session, the most serene voice you could ever imagine. I have told her things I’ve never told anyone; she makes you feel safe and there is never anything except pure understanding and light beaming from her. Grace’s intuitive gifts are what truly set her apart from not just other healers but other hypnotherap
