Everyone goes through challenges in their lives, and while our coping mechanisms can handle many challenges we face, some upsets require an extra kick from an outside source…you know, someone who can catch our blind spots. After all, most surgeons don’t do surgery on themselves. This is Mark Sewell’s specialty – catching our blind spots and supporting people to transform their lives. What did he help me do? Navigate hardships and patterns which have been haunting me for years. But more about that later!
Mark is a very approachable and friendly man who is also incredibly generous. While I have seen him in certain circles, I didn’t actually meet him until the first WeDames Business Mixer on August 1st, 2018. It was difficult not to like him immediately. He is a consulting hypnotist and transformational coach who uses many modalities to support people in getting past their internal blocks so they can experience the results they want to experience in their lives.
He offers services on topics such as:
Overcoming phobias and fears,
And other shifts needed and wanted in one’s mindset.
He uses several different modalities to support people in their journey. As a wise man once told him, “When the only tool you have is a hammer, everything starts to look like a nail!”
This is why he frequents many modalities with his clients – he wants to ensure he has the right tool for the job!
As we spoke, he started talking about a modality called “Mindscaping.” Coming from a similar background in Malaysia, I was intrigued. I had never heard of Mindscaping – and lucky for me, Mark offered me a session. Let the journey begin!
My Mindscaping Session with Mark
To be completely honest, this session couldn’t have come at a better time. I had been facing some stress in my life, and while I focused on releasing the anxiety which had been plaguing me for the last several weeks, I was still having some residual emotional complications….OK, a LOT of emotional complications. It was affecting almost every aspect of my life despite my working on it daily!
I sat down with Mark, chatted for a bit and made myself comfortable. He has a cozy office which is conveniently located on E. Sunshine, and it wasn’t difficult for me to ease myself into the environment.
We started the session which required my eyes to be closed the whole time, and in I went into the topic which had been plaguing me for most of my life and had been manifesting itself over and over again. The only difference was Mark appealed to my unconscious mind about the topic as opposed to the conscious mind which felt angry, betrayed and bitter. As he walked me through “the landscape” of this particular issue, it became more and more clear to me that the solution wasn’t far away at all – in fact, it was right in front of me the whole time.
Being an emotional and transformational coach for years, I half-expected to cry or punch pillows to work through this issue (all of which I have done before) – but that isn’t what happened at all. Mindscaping has to do with appealing to the brain and how it processes a situation or experiencing you’ve had and reshaping it to something more peaceful or pleasing.
Throughout the whole session, I felt light, and after we were finished, which admittedly took me a few minutes to come out of, I didn’t have any strong emotions about the situation which had been haunting me. That was an improvement in itself! Mark told me that I may have vivid and strange dreams that evening, and my goodness was he on point. That evening, I kept waking up after a weird dream only to wake up a few hours later to other bizarre images playing over in my mind. He told me that this was the brains’ way of cataloging and processing the session, and after that night, I believe him.
The next day, I noticed I didn’t wake up stressing about the topic. Most days, the first thing I started thinking about was this issue. It wouldn’t be long before I’d be focused on it and grumpy about it. This usually led to a frantic day filled with anxiousness and stress. But not this day! Instead, I woke up not feeling any strong emotions about it at all. I could do my morning meditation and journaling without my thoughts pulling away to this awful issue.
With something like this, we often don’t realize how bothered we are by something until we are no longer experiencing it. And for me, it was as clear as night and day.
In short, I highly recommend Mark’s Mindscaping sessions for anyone who wants to experience more peace, growth, joy, and contentment. I had gone without these things for too long, and it was nice to experience these emotions again!
