Hypnotist Wayne Lee entertains attendees of the Ponoka Agricultural Society's Women's Conference Saturday

Hypnotist advocates positive attitude in life

Hypnotist Wayne Lee gave attendees of Women’s Conference a chance to laugh but also a chance to create a change in their lives.

Hypnotist Wayne Lee gave attendees of the Women’s Conference Saturday, Oct. 3 a chance to laugh but also a chance to think about how to create a change in their lives.

The conference was hosted by the Ponoka Agricultural Society, said president Lauraine Weir, and was meant to give women time for themselves and for friends. The key message was that women are in control of their lives and their destiny.

Lee’s presentation was very much along similar lines although he also provided a chance for some good laughs during his hypnosis show. Before asking volunteers to come up on stage to be hypnotized, Lee said the biggest fear people have is what others will think of them. He advocates getting out of a comfort zone and doing things to feel good.

“When you feel good you attract all those things that you want,” explained Lee.

Not discounting the stressful times in a person’s life, Lee said the goal with his show is to give people tools to dealing with those issues. With hypnosis Lee creates a suggestion for participants to change their outlook and viewpoint.

“It’s really an indication and an illustration of how we can change a perception in a snap,” said Lee.

During his show Lee was able to have volunteers go to sleep and then follow his suggestions some of which had them imagining they were professional musicians trying out for a professional orchestra situated in Ponoka. Lee had all of the volunteers playing air instruments for the enjoyment of the crowd. While the demonstration did have women laughing, Lee couched the demonstration with the message that a person can focus their mind “intentionally and intently” in a positive manner.

“What you want, your body automatically follows in that direction,” he suggested.

Imagination, says Lee, is a powerful tool that can change a person’s life around. “I like to call it your inner magic because it gives you something out of nothing.”

There are three words people often use that Lee says will hinder that forward progress: try, can’t, but. He feels changing those words to actions will also benefit people. Instead of using the word “but,” Lee says they should use the word “and.”

Lee has also started a 100 day program intended to help people and to deal with mental health management. The program is in early stages and Lee requests feedback on it. Check out www.waynelee.com for more details.
