Before we get into how hypnosis can help you improve your overall health, it’s important to note that most people have the wrong idea about hypnosis. When it comes to medicine, hypnosis refers to helping the patient reach a deep state of relaxation. The role of hypnosis in medicine is still evolving, but is being considered in various uses much more than a few decades ago. (more…)
There is a lot of uncertainty in life, whether in our personal affairs or in our changing and unsteady political climate. The strategies that most of us rely on to contend with such uncertainty tend to be self-defeating. When we face an uncertain future we often resort to feeling anxious, worrying, complaining, or being negative about events that may never occur.
But some people rise to meet uncertain times with hope and resilience. We need to develop such attitudes if we want to be successful in the face of life’s ups and downs.
What does having hope mean? Think of how you handle difficult situations. Do you offer platitudes like, “I hope everything will work out”? Unfortunately, this is just a way of disengaging or checking out of a difficult situation. True hope comes from a source much deeper, your core.
At your core, there are vital qualities that help to determine how much hope you yourself feel, as well as what you can offer to others. Hope is an essential component in facing any type of uncertainty, from layoffs, to promotions, to moving, and to the current state of the world. (more…)
4 Simple Guidelines to Finding True Inner Peace
Life has probably thrown you a curve ball or two along the way. You’ve likely had times when you felt unsettled by past events or things to come. That amount of discomfort can lead to inner turmoil.
It’s completely natural to be affected by what’s going on around you. (more…)
Do you long to be a success in some field? Maybe there is some financial, physical or work goal you are pursuing. When you reach a goal, do you set your sights on some other achievement? If so, that is natural. Humans have an ongoing desire to set goals and work to achieve them. In other words, you are hardwired to seek success.
Regarding success, what does it really mean anyway? The Merriam Webster dictionary gives this definition for the word succeed: “to turn out well: to attain a desired object or end.”
If you seek to succeed, it is smart to copy others who have done what you are attempting to do. After all, they once had the same goal you have, and they were successful in achieving it. The following 5 tips are found in the traits and behaviors of many successful people. Adopt and practice them yourself, and you inch closer to success in the pursuit of your goals.
1 – Get Up Early
Talk to someone who is a success and you will probably hear that they get up earlier than most people. They have a burning desire to accomplish their goals, they went to bed the previous night thinking about what they had to accomplish the next day, and they know the earlier they rise, the more time they have to pursue success. This also means successful people get to bed earlier than night birds, which makes rising early in the morning easier.
“It is well to be up before daybreak, for such habits contribute to health, wealth, and wisdom.”
2 – Establish an Exercise Routine
One poll taken of high achievers shows that more than 70% of those successful people find a way to exercise each day. Successful people are often very busy. However, even though time is at a premium for them, they know the importance of a healthy mind and body. Establishing and sticking to a regular exercise program teaches discipline which can pay dividends in pursuit of your goals.
“When it comes to health and well-being,
regular exercise is about as close to a magic potion as you can get.”
3 – Create Boundaries and Balance
It may be hard to believe, but successful individuals do not work on their career or personal goals all the time. They make time for different parts of their life. They give time to their family, they plan “me” time for themselves, and they also portion time for their career or business. Sometimes we believe that successful people are “go, go, go” all the time in pursuit of a single goal. The truth is a balanced life is more likely to get you where you want to be.
“When we fail to set boundaries and hold people accountable, we feel used and mistreated.
This is why we sometimes attack who they are,
which is far more hurtful than addressing a behavior or a choice.”
4 – Plan Tomorrow Today
Some people do stumble on to success from time to time. This is a rare occurrence, however. When you do not plan for success, you are courting failure. At the end of each evening, right before you go to bed, plan the next day. This gets your subconscious thinking about tomorrow’s goals and responsibilities while you sleep, and you wake up with an organized plan that improves your chances of success.
Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.
5 – Don’t Think of Failures as Who You Are
A failure is an event. It is not a person. You will fail from time to time, that is an absolute certainty. Still, this does not make you a failure. You are just a person who didn’t achieve the results you are looking for. You simply learned one way not to do something. Successful people have a strong ability to learn lessons from their failures, and then put them in their rear-view mirror. You must let go of your past to succeed in the future.
There is no innovation and creativity without failure. Period.
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it.
Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion.
Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential.
Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.

I believe this is a very accurate and comprehensive account of Hypnosis one which I share in most part so rather than spending hours recreating the wheel I am sharing this. Please understand it is only one interpretation of Hypnotherapy and I am sure not everyone will agree so take what you need from this so that if and when you decide to have a hypnosis session or buy a product online you will have a better idea of what to expect and the questions to ask before you commit your time and hard earned cash to that person or product.
