Las Vegas Concert Shooting
Stress, Fear, Guilt and Anxiety Reduction Tips.

If you are feeling afraid, stressed, anxious,angry, having nightmares, trouble sleeping, or generally uncomfortable as a result of being at or just hearing and reading about the recent shooting at the country music concert in Las Vegas

I have some free tips that can really help you relax and "let go" so that you can break out of your trance,  get unstuck, get rid of all of the stress, fear, anger, guilt, and anxiety associated with horrific, scary, tragic events like this one. It works for any sort of trauma regardless if you were physically injured or not and regardless if you were even physically there.

They are 100% FREE
There is NO CATCH!

This is NOT a substitute for medical attention especially if you are feeling suicidal or homicidal.  If you feel that way by all means  get  medical and mental health attention immediately.  

It does not really matter if you fit the clinical criteria for PTSD aka  Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or not. I have some tips for you that can really help you relax and let go of a lot of this
"negative energy."

I did not learn these tips from some "head shrinker" of a Doctor who only learned them in a classroom or from a book. These tips came about because of  my personal experience  with a horrible tragedy that I experienced in 1986 that caused me PTSD. 

I discovered these techniques including hypnosis / hypnotherapy  because at the time there wasn't any doctor or therapist to help me and we did not have the mind numbing zombie medications that are available now. And we sure as heck did not have " medical marijuana"  so I needed a solution and I found it.  Use them with my blessing.

I  teach them to my clients.

They are yours at no cost.

This is not any kind of a sales pitch. This info here is 100% instantly usable and free.

Before you dig in: Here's a bit of info about me: I'm a Hypnotherapist and Stage Hypnotist based out of Reno Nevada.  By day I help  people with a wide variety of issues including  stopping smoking, drinking, overcome fears and phobias, weight loss, better sleep, increased confidence, improving their mental game of sports and of course getting over fears, anxiety and PTSD.  People see me in my office in Reno and often call me from other areas of the country and that includes Las Vegas even though there are several very good hypnotherapists there.

By night I perform comedy hypnosis shows both in Reno, Las Vegas  and all over the USA. I love my work and take great delight in helping people "be the best that they can be." This is not a "pitch" for hiring me to help you with hypnotherapy / hypnosis.   I just want you to know that this is what I do and who I am.

to begin:

Read these 2 phrases out load so that you can feel the emotion.

"Yes, People Died
do not be afraid
to LIVE!"

"Let whatever is going on around you
let whatever goes on INSIDE of you
be your own choice!"

Go ahead and say that a few times slowly

Now for your anxiety and fear reduction tips

A Few Notes About Fear & Guilt
Everyone reacts differently to fear. Especially if you have never experienced or been in combat or  trained for a  traumatic situation like the one that you experienced.   People who are "first responders" such as police, military, firemen, paramedics etc are trained and conditioned on how to behave in emergency situations.  While  "regular people" are not.  As well, a small percentage of people are naturally wired to  run toward danger and help injured while most people are naturally wired to run and hide.  If you have any feelings of guilt or shame because you didn't "do enough"  just forgive yourself.  You only did what you knew what to do automatically and were physically and emotionally prepared to do.    If you don't like that part of yourself, take a class in emergency first aid or search and rescue. Perhaps it will come in handy or at least give you peace of mind that in the future, perhaps you could do something. 

Also fear and sadness have nothing to do with  age, size, gender, race or how much you can lift in the gym.  So if you are a physically strong person who is feeling   sad, angry and fearful and your friend who was also at this event is not, this is not a sign that you are weak.  It's just how it is because everyone is  different. What's important is that you get help or at the very least help yourself  using these tips or  someone else's.

Write about it:   Writing about your tragedy  does something to help a human heal in a way that no amount of talking about it will. 

I personally believe that many therapists enjoy "talk therapy" because they can charge you for it for a long time regardless of the results. If talking about the horrible events that took place and how you are feeling helps you, that's great and by all means do it.  But WRITING is what I have found to be effective.
Best of all its FREE!

There is something very therapeutic  about taking the emotions, thoughts, feelings pictures,guilty, sad, fearful, angry and anxious thoughts and images etc that are swimming around in your head and putting them into written words. It creates instant relief.

The most effective way that I have found to do so is to get a notebook and a pen. I suppose that you can use a computer or your phone if you want to. But pressing a pen into paper seems to work best. 
One of the reasons is that your brain can't process the overwhelming emotions involved with this tragic situation. So the best way to "process out" the information is to get it out of your head and onto paper.

Structure, form, grammar, understandability, spelling etc is not important.  You are not writing so that someone else can  read your writing. You are not even telling a story.  You might not ever read these words again. This is basically journaling. It's just a way for you to "wring out" the fear from your  brain the way that you would  wring out a wet towel.  So just write everything that comes to mind.  It is especially helpful to do this  right before bedtime as a way to "get the garbage out of your head" so that your brain does not  have to deal with it all night long. It may feel a bit like taking a shower just before bedtime after a long hot day in the dirt. 

Do this and notice how much better you feel.  You will sleep better immediately as well.

Do it as often as needed. Even if you are writing the same thing over and over.


The mental breakfast of champions is a way to start the day on a positive note by reading positive words, phrases, thoughts etc that are written by YOU!  You can create them yourself or find them elsewhere. Just write down some nice goals, phrases, words, affirmations, thoughts , feelings, lyrics, poems, bible verses, sayings, slogans,  whatever it is that you feel would help you be optimistic throughout your day for you down and  read it out loud in the morning upon awakening. Read them in the shower, recite them over coffee. Say them as part of a morning prayer or while eating breakfast.  You are setting the tone for your day. The idea is to "begin your day with a friendly voice."

BREATHE: Three long super s-l-o-w deep breaths will instantly relax you anytime you feel scared, tense, anxious, nervous etc.
The key to this is to inhale and exhale deep long and super slow 

EXERCISE:  A very fast run or bike ride even running in place does a lot to burn off anxiety.   If you can't do that, at least go for a walk. If you don't believe me, I have tested it.  The FASTER I ran the better I felt.  But do what is appropriate for your health.

HUG SOMEONE OR PET AN ANIMAL: Just do it. You will immediately feel comfort.

NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS: Take a break from the news.  Watching and listening to  the news causes anxiety.  Its all bad and you don't need any more of it.  How will knowing the latest about this horrible  man who shot everyone help you feel any better?  If you do ever find out what motivated him its not going to make you feel any better or any safer anyway. When's the last time anything on the news helped you feel better about life anyway?

MUSIC THERAPY: Listen to  very soft gentle relaxing and uplifting music.  Meditation, hypnosis, type music or baroque, pan flutes, soft guitar, piano, ocean waves  all help calm your brain.    If country music starts to reassociate you with  the shooting at the Las Vegas concert, and it upsets you, then listen to something else for awhile.

STAY HYDRATED: Drink lots of water. Keep your body  and your brain hydrated. Avoid alcohol as it will only add to your confusion and can cause depression.

ART THERAPY: Find some beautiful relaxing photos or paintings to look at while breathing deep. Allow these beautiful images to  burn into your brain so that they can eventually replace any  scary, horrific images from the  Las Vegas tragedy. Do this in the morning and again at bedtime. If you have been having trouble with constantly reliving the events of that night and seeing  tragic, images, this will help replace those images.

LAUGH THERAPY: Watch comedy. Stand up comedy, comedy movies, go to comedy clubs and comedy concerts.  There are many of them for FREE on youtube.  I even have a bunch of hypnosis show videos on this site.  They WILL make you laugh.

CHURCH: Church has helped millions of people for a very long time.  If you have never been to one, now might be a great time to start.  Going is easy. You don't need a membership and  you don't need permission or money. Just walk in.

Hypnosis: Hypnosis is an altered state of mind. 
If you know anything about meditation, the process is similar, except unlike meditation you have an agenda which in this case is to detach from the unwanted emotions of the tragedy that took place and allow these negative feelings to fade away just like the headlines from yesterdays paper....

You can reprogram your mind with  thoughts and feelings that  serve you.  By working with a hypnotherapist you can achieve results very quickly. But you can also do this yourself with great success. After all it worked for me when I figured this out on my own back in 1986.

Step 1) Write down everything that you are feeling that is disempowering, uncomfortable and that is basically bothering you regarding this tragic shooting.  Basically everything that scares you, frustrates you  makes you  feel nervous, anxious, angry etc.

Step 2) On another sheet of paper write down a long list of what  thoughts feelings behaviors  etc you feel you need in-order for you to feel the way that you want to and to overcome this.

Step 3)   Write everything out in positive sentences or phrases. Choose words that create positive  feelings, images, pictures, sounds, smells.  if you want to draw positive images next to the words that's fine too.

Step 4) Write out the result of this and everything that you will gain.

Step 5) Read it all back so that you feel comfortable.

Step 6) Sit quietly and play some slow deeply relaxing music.  Close your eyes and deeply slowly inhale and exhale 3 times.  Slowly open your eyes and read everything in step 2,3 and 4.  Let all related positive thoughts and feelings sink in.

Just relax and enjoy the tranquility.  Take a nap or wake up and get moving.

What's really neat is that with hypnosis you can train your mind to detach from FEAR and negativity associated with this  horrible event  and basically "just chill" so that you are not freaked out all the time. You can also  "flip a switch" so that you   begin  taking positive action.

"People Died

let whatever goes on INSIDE of you
be your own choice!"
