“Neither comprehension nor learning can take place in an atmosphere of anxiety.” – Rose Kennedy
According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, “Anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S., affecting 40 million adults in the United States age 18 and older.” The cost of this is enormous with more than $42 billion being spent every year to help people cope with anxiety disorders.
Today, people are finding it harder and harder to relax. The pace of life today is breathtaking. We are constantly connected to information flies flying at us at high speed making it difficult to impossible for many people to just let go and truly relax.
If you go to a doctor they will often prescribe drugs to help you relax. But for most people these drugs do little, if anything to relieve the anxiety because drugs do not address the core problem, only symptoms.
People throughout history have learned how to relax and, with a little practice, you can learn how to relax too.
The following is a realization process that can help you stop the anxiety anytime, anyplace, no matter how stressed the situation you’re in: Continue reading →
Smoking kills 1,200 people around the world every day and is the number one cause of preventable death in the world. In the U.S. smoking is responsible for 30 percent of all heart attacks and cardiovascular deaths.
There’s a long, running debate about whether it’s more difficult for women or men to quit smoking. In a recent study, the University College London looked at more than 100,000 smokers in the United States, Britain and Canada they found that there is really very little difference between the sexes when it comes to quitting.
Here’s what’s important. With the right motivation and approach, everyone can stop smoking.
The following are some quit smoking tips that are can be especially helpful for women. Continue reading →
I have been a practicing certified hypnotherapist and Master NLP practitioner for about a decade, using advanced hypnosis methods and Neuro Linguistic Programming techniques to help people work on issues ranging from losing weight to stopping addictions such as smoking.
These methods are very powerful ways of helping people shift their thinking and change their lives.
Today I’d like to focus on hypnosis and more particularly, self hypnosis
What is Hypnosis?
While some people believe that hypnosis is a mystical or magical process, nothing could be farther from the truth.
Hypnosis is simply a process of communicating with your subconscious mind by bypassing your conscious thinking. This allows you to focus on shifting your mindset so that you can achieve a goal or change your views on an idea such as smoking or overeating. Continue reading →
“Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.”
This quote by Jim Rohn is about letting go of all the small stuff and finding your passion in life. You see when you find your passion, your purpose in life you start focusing on what’s important.
When you focus on what’s important you take hold of the steering wheel of your life. You give your life direction.
“Everything you want is out there waiting for you to ask. Everything you want also wants you. But you have to take action to get it”. – Jack Canfield
As America’s #1 Mental Fitness Coach people ask me “How can I use advanced hypnotherapy (hypnosis) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) to change my life?” The short answer is that, although powerful, these brain technologies cannot change your life, they can only shift the way you look at life. Then you have to choose what to do with that change in perspective.
In reality, the only way you can make any use of these shifts in perspective is by choosing different behaviors, behaviors that become habits that cause you to take daily action that move you toward your goals and dreams.
New Behaviors = New Results
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.”-Albert Einstein
Many times people want their life to change but they don’t want to do anything different. Any changes in your life come as a result of new behaviors. These new behaviors then become habits, things you do automatically on a regular basis.
As a master NLP Practitioner and Hypnotist I am very aware of the power that hypnosis has in helping people achieve their goals and dreams. In fact the reason I started my practice in San Diego of helping people with advanced hypnotherapy (hypnosis) and Neuro Linguistic programming or NLP was because of the many benefits I’ve personally received.
How I Was Introduced to Hypnosis
Way back in the early 1980’s I was attending the University of San Diego. While there I met a fellow student who was a professional hypnotherapist. Up to this time I didn’t even know there was such a thing as a professional hypnotist. I went to a few sessions with her and she recommended some books to me which I read. Since then I’ve read hundreds of books and articles about hypnosis. Continue reading →
As a Master NLP Practitioner and Hypnotist I teach my clients quick and easy methods to use advanced hypnotherapy (hypnosis) and Neuro Linguistic programming or NLP to feel motivated and energized. One of my favorite techniques is the superhero technique.
“NLP provides a systematic framework for directing our own brain. It teaches us how to direct not only our own states and behaviors, but also the states and behaviors of others. In short, it is the science of how to run your brain in an optimal way to produce the results you desire.” – Tony Robbins
As a Master NLP Practitioner and Hypnotist people often ask me “What is NLP?” The easiest explanation I have is “NLP is a method anyone can use to develop success in your life.” Continue reading →
“A desire to be in charge of our own lives, a need for control, is born in each of us. It is essential to our mental health, and our success, that we take control.” –Robert Foster Bennett
As America’s #1 Mental Fitness Coach people often ask me to give them quick methods from advanced hypnotherapy (hypnosis) and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) that they can use to improve their mental, physical or spiritual fitness. I have to explain to them that there really is no “quick fix”, that all of these take work. I also explain that none of these can be addressed by themselves, their mental, physical or spiritual fitness are all interrelated.
In order to have fitness in one area you have to work at developing fitness in the other areas also. You need to take care of your mental, spiritual and physical health. You need to develop a balanced life. Continue reading →
