Liberation from You

Liberation. The word is inspiring and filled with history and meaning. Look up the phrase "independence"  on Wikipedia and you'll get a definition about countries, nations and states and self government. Look up the word liberation, and you won't get much. As a definition, three words, actually. Why so much about freedom but so little … [Read more...]

Why You Need Discomfort!

    One hot summer day found me at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. I was on a  river rafting trip with Arizona River Runners and 30 other people. My buddy Brian was driving the boat on this 9 day trip down the Colorado River. One evening after dinner while  people were pitching their tents, one of the passengers came running up to tell us that … [Read more...]

31 Scary Questions to Ask Yourself

  It's all about scary this week as we approach Halloween and Day of the Dead.  It's a time when it's fun to be scared, as long as we know that it's just a movie, or someone dressed up as the walking dead. Truth is, there are plenty of really scary things out there.  But by far, the scariest things are those that we hide … [Read more...]

Hypnosis 101: How Does It Work?

In last week's post I talked about how hypnosis is a natural state we all go into; while watching TV, while driving, while exercising, before we go to bed and right after we wake up. That attached diagram, (courtesy of the Hypnosis Motivation Institute) is what I use with every new client to explain how hypnosis and hypnotherapy works. From … [Read more...]

Are You Ready for Change?

Are you ready for change? You'd better be. Because it's coming like a locomotive and if you're not ready, you'll get run over. I remember when we went from rotary dial to push button, then to cordless. I got my first cell phone in 2005. I remember using lps, (long playing records) to 8 track, to cassette, to CD, to iPod. Those changes were … [Read more...]

The Shackles of Shame

(Video 32 seconds) Shame. Say the word out loud and feel it's intense power. The root of the word shame is thought to come from an older word meaning to cover, as in covering oneself. When we feel shame, we cover ourselves, literally and figuratively. Eve was said to cover herself in the Garden of Eden when she realized she was naked. She … [Read more...]

Weight Loss is Seldom About Weight

Of all the things I help people with in my hypnotherapy practice, it seems that weight loss is the most difficult.  I don't really advertise it. When someone calls me for weight loss, I tell them that it is going to be a minimum of eight sessions.  I want to make sure they are serious. Because weight loss is rarely about food and weight. I … [Read more...]

Self Hypnosis Class Starting June 14: Master Your Mind

Why is permanent change so hard? The answer is because only 12% of your mind (conscious) wants to change.  Your subconscious mind, which is 88% of your mind, wants to stay the same. What your subconscious mind wants is based on your childhood conditioning, past experiences and beliefs. You have the ability to change your subconscious … [Read more...]

What’s The Deal with Affirmations?

Many people think that the practice of saying affirmations is kind of a new agey, hokey thing. (Maybe they saw that affirmation guy on Saturday night live ...) However, I think they can be very powerful as a technique for programming your mind for achievement of your goals. I’m no biblical scholar or even an avid reader of the bible, but there … [Read more...]
