Relationship with Smoking and How to Redefine it

I’m noticing some Equinox Resolutions on Facebook so  I’ll touch on relationship with smoking. Being a hypnosis/mind over matter professional, it is as much about the post work.  When the urge hits, this means adrenals are dropping and the cigarette is a way to keep adrenals up in fight/flight mode.  Digestion system shuts down at […]

“I want to stop smoking” – Bigger than lighting up!

Many times when a client says “I want to stop smoking” she may perceive that this is a mutually exclusive action. It’s not. There are many reasons why a person is inspired to smoke – boredom, bonding, calming, concentrating, anger, hunger, (a valid) excuse to take a break, something to do with her hands, tired. […]

Opinions: It’s what we do with them that matters

A young mother doesn’t report that her preschool aged daughter missing for up to one month.  Pictures are found of her at parties enjoying herself as if nothing was amiss.  Her daughter is found buried in an unmarked grave.  The mother is put on trial for murder.  The prosecution was unable to prove the mother […]

Experiential Living: More Alert Senses Increasing Odds of Pleasure

Sunken into the couch the home video rolled.  An overcast and drizzly day, the Irish sun hadn’t shown itself enough to create the serotonin brain chemicals to wake us up from our trip from the States.  We checked into our bed and breakfast and off we went to a local castle to keep ourselves alert […]

What if someone “detests” the things you do?

When I moved, to get to know more people, I went to many mainstream and conscious living networking gatherings. Some gatherings can be tough at times because what I do can be controversial – Hypnotherapy, EFT, NLP, Astrology, Numerology and Birth Order – and I can take some negative hits every now and again. When […]

Are you a “Swayer” or “Liberal?”: “Swayer” may be better for your Health

I moved from a conservative area to a more liberal area to (in part) be among a larger population of “my people.”  Generally speaking, I’ve thought of a liberal as being more open-minded until recently.    It seems that some liberal’s are most flexible if you meet certain criteria: 1.  You should live in the […]

The Calm after the Storm: Growth-Aide and the “What-Next” plans to thrive

In hypnosis there are techniques that we use as therapists that put our clients’ minds into a type of chaos so that the conscious mind basically shuts down and the subconscious is more easily accessed. An everyday life application is when, for instance, too many people are talking to us at one time, we become […]

Real Branding = Empathy — Empathy = World Kindness

A world-renowned brand advertising professional teaches that the early 1900’s Nobel Peace Prize winner Petrovich Pavlov is the person responsible for creating the idea of branding. Why? Because of his famous (cause and effect) “Pavlov’s Dog” experiment — where he put meat on a dog’s tongue then rang a bell and did this repeatedly until […]

Being Abusive when being Too Bright-Sided

In a networking chat group that I am associated with, a professional said (in summary), “If you’re negative your business (and life overall) will fail.” This overly used mind/body type remark has become increasingly unproductive over the years and now people are keeping “Their Own Secret” that they don’t always buy into having sunshine blown […]
