I love the title of this blog post written by Sarah Ban
I Tried Hypnosis for Insomnia. Then My Skin Cleared Up.
I don’t understand it, either, but I’m not complaining.
How often have I seen that.
So many people who have used hypnosis will say the same thing. “I don’t know how it worked – but it did.”
Adam Eason my hypnotherapist friend was amazed when he was treated for his psoriasis by a clinical hypnotherapist.
He was completely surprised by the effect on his skin as he had tried everything else prescribed.
That is in fact what led Adam to learn about hypnosis and start his hypnotherapy career.
Back to Sarah’s article…
The blog post by Sarah is well worth reading and she points out various studies and research in the field.
She finishes her blog post:
Whether or not I can explain how my skin got better, I’m pretty positive that my hypnosis sessions had something to do with it.
Whichever confounding variable was responsible for the clearer skin I saw after my hypnotherapy sessions (stress reduction, better sleep, placebo effect, or all of the above), I’m just thrilled to have seen results at all.
I was finally able to get my racing mind under control with the help of hypnosis. That meant I went from getting maybe two measly hours of sleep a night to a solid eight hours, which is a massive improvement for me. When I’m well-rested during the day, I’m more equipped to handle hectic situations, which means my stress levels are more under control, and I’m pretty sure that’s resulting in a newly clear complexion. My skin still breaks out when I’m frazzled, but it seems a lot happier overall. And so am I.
It is very easy to get wrong impressions about hypnosis. The showmen want to make it all look mystical and unreal.
I have videoed many courses where hypnotherapists were being trained. Many wonderful people with a real desire to help people with annoying behaviours, habits, addictions, pain, self-esteem and so on.
The problem for them especially in their early days is convincing many people out there who have very little knowledge about the therapy.
Ten years ago I was among those who knew very little about hypnosis.
Here are a few facts about hypnosis.
This is a difficult one for clinical hypnotherapists to deal with. The on stage guys are clever and use hypnosis and distraction techniques well.
The people selected to go on stage and take part are actually expecting an outcome. They are more prepared than they believe to respond and play the part.
The thing to realise is that they are willingly being led and are NOT really under the control of the hypnotist.
I personally love Derren Brown who actually calls himself a mentalist and illusionist. That is much better title although other people talk about him being a hypnotist. He often will show at the end of his performance how he has been misleading the audience. He will show video and you can see the clever language that is feeding the imaginations of those being manipulated.
Myths and Mystery and Bad Journalism
Oh dear I don’t know what to say about this one.
There are TV shows and humour “look into my eyes, look into my eyes” and all of that nonsense.
There are journalists who write for a living who are writing err … garbage!!
There are exceptions like Sarah Bar above who is giving a sensible researched article.
Firstly, the Telegraph, which you’d expect to have a more sober perspective on the story carries the headline: ‘Hypnotist thief puts shopkeeper in trance before robbing him’ The hypnosis article can be found here if you’d like to read it.
Before I do anything else, let me address the fact that the Telegraph uses the word ‘Trance’ in the title of their article and then assumes that trance and hypnosis are the same thing. They are not.
Hypnotism Is Not A Hypnotist/Hypnotherapist Taking Control
The problem, of course, lies in the way hypnosis is presented again and again by the media, having to explain to clients over and over that hypnosis is something THEY do sometimes feel like a losing battle.
Self-Hypnosis is a skill that can be learned by anyone. Yes it is a learned SKILL
To Take Control Issue Further – For My Christian Friends.
I wrote about this a long time ago in 2008 but I won’t send you to that post.
What I will do in fact is update that blog though as there are some new links to add.
Let Me Rant a Bit – Which Is Not My Usual Style …
(you will see that this post is rather sombre for me – but I so want you all to know more about the subject before criticising)
The usual thing is that people think they know about something without having ever studied the subject at all – they simply have an opinion based simply on intuition, gossip or whatever.
Several of my church friends have questioned my interest in what they describe as taking control of someones mind and over somebody’s thinking?
What? … WHAT?
I have videoed and sat through hundreds of hours of clinical hypnotherapy and cognitive bahavioural therapy training – AND it is NOT taking control of the clients mind.
If you think there is exasperation showing – you are right!
Let me bow out.
Really I am wise to leave this to somebody qualified to talk about it.
I am no fool.
Here is a YouTube video – well audio reallywith a ridiculously strange splash screen – about Hypnosis and Christianity. This is a video interview with Rev Dr Scot Giles. This is about his work using hypnosis with cancer patients.
The talk therapies offer help harmlessly. There is a lot of research about the effectiveness of many interventions – for example pain relief. The weakness is that there much more research needed.
So What About Psychiatry?
The very same people that object to hypnosis therapy WILL accept and endorse psychiatrists offering treatments and medication.
From my young nursing days back in the 60’s I had the horror of working with a team giving Electro-Convulsive Therapy (ECT). Notice my strong word horror. I could not believe what I was witnessing. I will say no more about that as it was a long time ago and I may exaggerate.
I was shocked (there’s a pun) when I found out recently that this therapy was in growing use again.
“The figures, obtained through freedom of information requests, show that despite being a crude, controversial treatment, which fell sharply out of favour around the turn of the millennium, ECT is enjoying a revival.
The procedure involves anaesthetising the patient and passing electricity through the brain to induce seizure. Despite ghoulish depictions in popular culture and a marked lack of science explaining how and why it works, treatments can prove effective. Patient stories range fromlife-changing benefits to tales of lives being ruined.”
Hypnotherapists are not wanting to get inside your head and control you. There intention is for their clients to learn the skills of focused imagination and suggesting to themselves the changes they want to make. That is my simple interpretation. Don’t let me tell you though. Better to learn directly from a hypnotherapy practitioner. I can put you in touch with the best.
What If Hypnotherapists Could Get To Control You?
I remember when I first met Adam, the guy who introduced me to hypnotherapy.
He was introducing his business in a breakfast BNI meeting. At each BNI meeting you were allowed 60 seconds to tell a story about your business. A bit like twitter really.
Adam was charismatic and I looked forward to his spot.
One of his minute stories was about hypnotherapists taking control of your mind.
Adam asked us “Why would I be standing up there at 7am to get some new business if I really could use magical hypnosis skills to control somebody? No! Surely I would simply make an appointment with my bank manager and get him to write me out a million pound cheque.
Of Course There Are So Many More Question – Another Day
There are so many other questions.
What does being hypnotised feel like?
Do I go to sleep?
Is it like being in the zone – like sportmen?
I really do want you to find out. So more to follow.
Here I am running two days late with my April blogging challenge.
I won’t go into excuse mode, enough to say yesterday and the day before were those sort of days. Should have stayed in bed.
Anyway – troubles sorted and back on track
I just have to CATCH UP.
It was MY decision to take the challenge. It was by choice and I am doing as much as I can to learn from the process and get my list building through blogging well under way. I want to do this and recognise the advantages.
Also My Son Tom Has A Challenge.
Also my son has been training for the London Marathon which is on 22nd April.
Tom is used to physical activity, surfing and climbing – but running is new and a challenge.
He signed up via a Stroke Charity which puts the pressure on.
He has had to train hard and has followed the regime suggested by the marathon organisers. He ran 22 miles last Sunday. The weather was not good and it would have been easy to let that one slip.
I have to be honest he has not really enjoyed the process – but the challenge and reward of raising the money has worked. I don’t think that he will choose to do it again.l But he will do this one and is aiming to do it in less than four hours.
Let’s Look At Motivation And What Is Going On.
There are three things going on when you undertake a project/challenge.
Activation – the decision to do something
Intensity – the amount of effort that goes into doing it.
Perseverance – How long you can keep up the effort
Achieving your goal requires all of the above.
Types of Motivation:
Arises inside of you. Like solving a puzzle just because you want to. YES – want to
Pros – Easy to maintain concentration. Will do it regardless of reward
Cons Can easily be subject to moods.
Comes from outside – eg solving a problem for money, recognition or praise from peers.
Pros – Easy to manufacture using rewards. Makes difficult tasks bearable.
Cons – Prone to procrastination.
How to Find Motivation
If ONLY it was possible for us to enjoy doing everything with intrinsic motivation.
Unfortunately tasks such as paperwork, chores and study often need willpower and rewards to get done.
If you’re feeling apathetic or keep procrastinating on a task, get MOTIVATED byeliminating the excuses.
Dreams get you started, discipline keeps you going
. Jim Rohn
How to get motivated
This stops you from the first step of motivation – starting an activity
1. You’re afraid of Failure
It’s a matter of perspective.
HOW TO FIX IT
Look at all the possible outcomes, including worst-case scenario.
If you fail, will it be really that bad?
If you don’t do the task, what will happen?
Think of the consequences.
This negative outcome should jumpstart you into getting motivated.
2. It’s Too Boring
If you lack the energy to do a task, you’re likely to use your motivation to indulge in something else – like watching TV
HOW TO FIX IT
Focus on the task instead of the time.
By looking at what you need to do, instead of how long it’ll take you, you’ll become more stimulated. With this approach, time should fly as you finish off the activity.
If this isn’t enough, track your progress towards a goal.
Focus on whatever is the smaller of the two: how much you’ve done against how much you have to do.
3. You Just Don’t Feel Like It.
Are you weighed down by an immense feeling of laziness? Then it is time to get organised.
HOW TO FIX IT
You can’t plan your moods, but you can plan your day.
Think about when you are most productive. If it’s early morning or late in the afternoon, then organize your day around this.
If you’re still feeling lazy, try the count down from 10, and start. Once you’re in the zone, you’re more likely to get things done.
4. You Are Too Tired
If you’re struggling to stay awake, then it will be impossible to be motivated.
HOW TO FIX IT
Take care of yourself physically as well as mentally.
Are you stressed out?
Take time to meditate and exercise.
How are your eating and sleeping patterns?
Don’t skip on meals or pull any all-nighters.
Listen to your body, and if you’re still fatigued, visit your doctor
Please feel free to contact me. Simply drop me an email and I will send you a Relaxation and Melt Stress self-hypnosis audio.
5. You Don’t Know Where To Start
Decision fatique affects everyone. The number of choices you make in a day is inversely related to your mental energy.
HOW TO FIX IT
Create A To Do List
Getting started can be the hardest part, but if you can see what needs doing from the get go, you’re onto a good start.
Include not only what you have to do, but what choices you have to make.
It’ll help you get your priorities in order and help you manage your brainpower usage.
6. You Have Too Much To Do
How can you put effort into something when you have so many other things to do?
HOW TO FIX IT
Get rid of any unnecessary commitments.
Every commitment you make uses up your finite willpower. Learn to say ‘no’ to things and simply focus on what’s truly important in life.
If it’s the sheer size of a task that’s overwhelming you, then divide and conquer.
Feel good about the small successes.
7. You Don’t See The Point
You’re faced with a mid-task crisis. Why I am doing this, exactly?
HOW TO FIX IT
Be clear on the end goal.
Know what you’re doing and why. If it is something boring or unpleasant, accept it is something you need to do to turn yourself into who you want to be.
Think of the future, successful version of yourself. What would that person do right now.
Willpower if like a muscle. The more you exercise it, the better you will be at using it. So stop reading and start doing.
Emotions In January Has Affected Our Marketing In the Past
Since I have been involved with Adam Eason putting together self-hypnosis products I have noticed many things that have affected our marketing in January. I have to admit that I have always thought that marketing in January is different.
In fact January is such a STRANGE month that I have waited till the last week to set the promotion going for our new Membership area – Hypnosis For Streaming
So what is it with January
When planning this blog post I was looking for some quotes about January but instead came across a great blog from Halfords the bike company called ‘The Five Emotions Of January’.
Brief summary of Halfords Blog:
Ahhh January. You’re certainly not our most loved month. Reflecting on a good old knees up over the festive season brings a smile to your face, but then the crashing reality of getting back to work and tackling those new goals sets in. But alas! We are all riding the rollercoaster together, so buckle up and revel in the fact that you are not alone…
The emotions highlighted in the blog were:
Week 1 Motivation – I will do etc
Week 2 Mourning (no money, diets yuck, exercise etc)
Week 3 Realisation (over thinking – I don’t get this)
This Year I Have Been Busy In January – Not Marketing The Usual Products…
Every year we run tweets and adverts about all the things you people out there want to achieve in the coming year. We know we have tools that can help make those things happen.
What does the New Year resolutions list look like? (Without looking I am sure you can guess.)
Improve Health – especially stopping any addictions, smoking, excess alcohol and so on
Control weight and look good on the beach this summer
Be motivated seek new opportunities for sucess
The problem is that although January comes in with a flash, bang, lets party!!
Then what happens – how does January work out?
Pretty murky outlook really: (some of this only applies to the northern hemisphere – but Australia has been rather hot)
The days are short – dark
The weather – well so no more
The papers are full of Blue Monday – the most depressing day of the year – credit card bills are hitting the doormat
No money until the end of the month
Flu and colds
Long waits in hospitals
Conclusion – What hope for our New Years Resolutions – might as well hit the bottle [a note here – I am only kidding].
My Marketing – Actually Not in Existence – Has Been Different This Year
This year I have had a different approach though. Forced upon me because I had other objectives.
I have been setting up a new approach to getting the Hypnosis For Download products out in a different way. The Hypnosis For Download online store and downloading of files will continue BUT most people will find this streaming approach easier and flexible.
The strategy is to make self-hypnosis products available from a membership area.
Hypnosis For Streaming Membership
Membership Option – Here is the logic / thinking / give it a go / honest reasons for the changes
[Here It Is In a Nutshell]
**We have a large number of products in the Hypnosis for Download website – a large resource / library of self help products.
** Members will be able to select a large range of combination of products that meet their specific needs.
**Videos about self-hypnosis skills and other psychological techniques available to all members
**Also we want to encourage members to invite others to join AND reward them for doing that.
**Personal, **Secure, **High Value, **Supportive Service **Online Income
**THAT’s THE AIM
More About the Membership Option
1. Make the Products Easily Available – I know – in fact I ABSOLUTELY know – that the Self-Hypnosis products we have can help so many of those New Year Resolutions. Easier. Faster. Permanently. By making the products available from any device using your login details your access is flexible, secure, mobile and private.
2. Teach How To Use:- Some of the videos and audios in the membership website are aimed at showing you all about self-hypnosis and other psychological skills. These are products that in the past were expensive to purchase and download. In the membership area they will be available to all members and help improve the use and effectiveness of the self-hypnosis products.
3. Personal Selection:- Members will be able to select and choose any combination of the library of self-hypnosis choices. Mix and Match hypnosis.!!
4. Ease of Access:– Having run the support desk for Hypnosis For Download, I can tell you first hand, that people have problems with large products and downloads and lose the files or computers crash with everything lost etc etc !!!! . SO … What we are doing now is putting digital products into secure storage areas and delivering them directly over the internet. Streamed delivery to any laptop, tablet, mobile phone using login details. Available anywhere in the world (as long as phone network or wifi etc.) The whole process will be simpler and cheaper to deliver when everything is in place.
5. Personal and Avoiding Embarrassment:- You may not think this is a big one, but it is. If you have an addiction or sexual issue that you want to overcome, and you know there are products out there to help you – it takes courage to actually order them. In the members area, all products of a personal nature are available to you. Nobody knows what self-hypnosis sessions you are using. They are available to all members.
6. Incredible Value:- We want people to be using these great products created by our Hypnotherapists. We are a business though and keen to make a living and what I really want to achieve is extensive delivery so that low cost is not an issue. We have to do the maths. All members joining now will definitely get the best deal. £7.50 per month.
7. Exclusive Affiliate Links:- The best marketing for any busy is word of mouth. There is a great opportunity for members to refer and the reward is great. You will get 50% commissions for members you refer. Your turn to do the maths. Two new referred members and you will have free membership as your monthly payment will be equal to your commissions. More members you have a monthly income.
8. Further Opportunities:- Not going into this just now but members who are interested in increasing affiliate income we will be talking to you.
9. Products For Non Members:– We will keep the Hypnosis For Download store open with the abilility to download products if that is what you prefer to do. BUT We have already started offering individual self-hypnosis session as streamed products using links the members area just for a specific product.
The Current State Of Play.
For two months now we have been uploading the many hundreds of audio and video files to a new encrypted secure area in Amazon Web Services.
We are at the point where there are about two thirds of the files in place.
All of the products that are currently available in our Hypnosis For Download online shop will be added within the next three weeks. We have concentrated first on the bigger programmes.
Last Week Of January
So here we are in the final week of January when it is probably the best time to reassess your New Years resolutions.
Why not try out a membership at Hypnosis For Streaming Membership area – where you will have a huge amount of Self Help resources.
DON’T FORGET – With a couple of referrals who become members you will have this massive library resource available for NOTHING. And you are in a place to make some money as well.
About this time of year I would usually be putting out adverts in our Hypnosis For Download ecommerce store for ‘Think Yourself Thin’ or ‘Stop Smoking Now’.
But NOT this year – 2018 is different.
On offer are loads of products – in fact – well over 200.
Furthermore you will get products such as ‘The Science Of Self-Hypnosis’ and ‘Hypnosis Revealed’ which are great for educating you all about how to use self-hypnosis effectively.
The ‘Science of Self-Hypnosis’ product is an online support for this book …
There are so many misconceptions about hypnosis because of the theatrical hypnosis stage acts. People get the impression (and it is often magnified by the performers presentation manner and words) that the hypnotist is controlling the audience participants. This is totally not the case.
That is a tragedy as far as I am concerned as I know the therapeutic use of hypnosis is powerful and effective when delivered correctly – and the user is totally in control – AFTER ALL it is SELF-HYPNOSIS therefore it has to be SELF CONTROL.
I wouldn’t be the slightest bit interested if that wasn’t the case. I am a church going christian and some of the people I meet at church have the same question about the control of someone else. I am going to shout again – NO IT IS NOT!!
Being in Hypnosis is Like…
When sportsmen are preparing to compete – they get in the zone (that is the closest analogy I can give) When the kids are up stairs watching TV and you call them to dinner – they are mesmerised by what is going on – they are hypnotised – and that is why they don’t hear you. Hypnosis is focused imagination. A layman’s explanation I know as I am not a hypnotherapist.
In the picture above you will see the sub title of the book – ‘The Evidence Based Way To Hypnotise Yourself’. That is a much better message. In the book there are a range of methods, for anyone to apply to achieve
a hypnotic mindset,
develop hypnotic skills,
deepen the experience of hypnosis,
apply a range of evidence based techniques and strategies for self-improvement.
Now the online ‘Science Of Self-Hypnosis’ takes all of the book content and provides audio recordings of the techniques.
In the educational part of the Hypnosis For Streaming I have made sure that the training comes first as it is ideal to have the best approach for the hypnosis sessions to work effectively.
So at the top of the membership area there are 4 educational products.
The membership has over 200 self-hypnosis products – some of them being fully narrated programmes. I know because it has taken me well over 100 hours in December to add them to the ‘Hypnosis For Streaming’ membership site. If you want to see all of the products you will have access to as a member – just look through HypnosisForDownload.com. They will all be in there.
About half of the products are in there at the moment – the aim is to get them all in there by the end of February.
Here is the good bit.
Members Can Become Affiliates
I have been trying for some time to get affiliates on board to help promote the products. In many ways it is difficult for affiliates to promote very small priced hypnosis sessions. So I wanted to overcome that problem.
Also it is also vitally important that affiliates know as much as possible about the product they are selling.
So let me be honest – I had to think about this one.
I was lucky as I joined a website (which I will tell you more about another day) and I liked their structure and the strategies used there. I liked it so much that I have nicked their ideas.
I am only letting people who are members become affiliates – because they will know about the product and will be able to give testimonials etc.
There is an incentive for the affiliates to do something – this is more important than I thought.
Just getting two new members will mean that the affiliate will cover his/her own membership cost and have free access.
After that the affiliate will earn monthly commissions on referred members.
So would you like to join me?
It is only $10 a month to join – and you will get access to skills that can help you — AND — access to a private affiliate package offering 50% commissions on members you refer. The same rules apply to those members as well.
The prices are in USD as the membership is open to anyone anywhere.
Bad habit and pills – that sounds as if I have an awful tale to tell. Let’s see!
Tablets and a bad habit are on my mind this morning. Yesterday I went to get my repeat prescription for the barrow load of tablets I have to take. BUT – there was an issue ( I still don’t understand what – but there you are – it is a fact ) and the prescription needed to be set up again by my doctor and with luck and a strong wind they will be there by tomorrow.
So by rooting around in the medicine cabinet, I found I had got enough for this morning.
And then Goodness me – NO!….
We were out of Activa or Yoghurt!! Was this going to be one of those days?
Why was that a disaster – well years ago I had to get over something that for me was an issue. I just couldn’t swallow tablets – no matter how small.
How crazy are we all?
Bad habit – it surely was. I could eat normally – but a tablet in my mouth was a gagging starter.
The time came though where I had to get over this problem. I had got to get over this as my health depended on me ‘taking the pills’.
Porridge and yoghurt became the answer. Within no time I was swallowing tablets easily as long as it was with a yoghurt or similar.
Today – this morning – I had no yoghurt or porridge. Question? – was the bad habit still there.
So I gave it a go – glass of water and what happened? It was fine – there was no issue at all. That is the first time I have tried to take tablets with water for many years. Isn’t the mind weird but wonderful?
Now there is a really important thing here about making changes to your mindset.
Changing Bad Habits – It’s Hard
Conventional wisdom is that it takes 28 days to free yourself from a bad habit. Unfortunately, that notion is just plain wrong. Bad habits are hard to break because they are Habits (notice the capital H). Remember: your brain has put your bad habit in the “automatic” category. Once there, it’s difficult to shake it free.
Yes, 28 days can give you a good jump start. It is probably longer and more like three months to substitute a new behaviour for a bad habit.
But I know from working with Hypnotherapist Adam Eason that behaviours and bad habits can be changed – helped by hypnosis or self-hypnosis.
The definition Bad – can be interpreted quite widely. Laziness is a good example:
Let’s say that laziness is a bad habit or maybe poorly motivated is like a bad habit. Then why not get a new mindset on that one.
There is a very popular product in our online hypnosis downloads store called From Lazy to Driven
You Must Want To Change to Make New Good Habits
What ever you own personal issues (yes you have them) make it your first resolution for 2018 – “I am going to get rid of that bad habit” That is the FIRST part of going about changing a bad habit – WANTING TO DO IT.
On the sales page for ‘Stop Smoking Now‘ – Adam asks the question – Do you really want to stop? He then suggests that you should not purchase the product if you haven’t already decided that you want to do it. Nothing will work until you have made that decision.
The arguments for stopping smoking are enormous and a smoker can be shown every reason to stop. NO GOOD until the smoker has taken that first step. The first step is you making up your mind.
That is the same for all habits.
Want to make the change and self-hypnosis will totally help you change your mindset and adopt a new self image and new mindset that supports that inner feeling. The change eventually becomes the new reality.
Look through hypnosisfordownload.com and think about your new year resolutions. As you look at the titles of the self-hypnosis sessions – ask yourself – do I really want to change that.
A really important point.
Never buy a self-hypnosis product for someone else. Get them for yourself as you are the only one who knows what changes you really want to make..
Head Chatter – that ‘Conversation with Yourself’ that goes on the whole time. Control it with Self-Hypnosis.
We all have it – It can be very helpful but it can also work against us –
stop us from doing things
make excuses galore
The head chatter is relentless and happens everywhere and is often unrelated to what we are doing. Oh the day dreaming of a youth in that lesson at school.
For example – if a vicar asked his congregation to come out and write on a chalk board what was going on inside their head as he delivers his sermon – I wonder how many would be able to do that honestly – without embarrassment.
The mind has many more secret ways of working. I woke up recently having dreamed about teaching an old lady to drive. What !?!! – where did that come from. I have never taught anyone to drive in my life. Dreams and nightmares – that powerful mind.
Consider all the hours that are lost asking yourself all of these questions.
Well – what about this?
I don’t have this problem – but I do have a wife and daughter (perhaps I should leave this one) – enough said.
The mind is an amazing thing and I have spent the last decade (reason for mentioning decade will become clear) learning a thing or to about hypnotherapy, mindfulness and other behavioural therapies simply by working alongside hypnotherapist Adam.
NOW – Timeline And Onwards
I have just celebrated my seventieth birthday and I have written recently about the changes I personally want to make to get what I want out of life in my seventies.
I have three projects in mind and this is an introduction to Project 1.
Project 1 – Getting as many people as possible to understand and use hypnosis and other mental techniques.
These talking therapies are totally misunderstood by most people and that is a shame as they can help with all of the mental issues, addictions, self-esteem etc etc etc
So many of the mental problems out there can be helped with talk therapies.
Until I was about 60 – I worked in nursing which was a great career.
We attempted to work holistically with patients but it was hard to find the time to really deal with all the mental issues of the care.
One of the things I really got to appreciate though was that patients responded very differently to their recovery from illness depending upon their mental state. Those that had a positive approach and were determined to just get over the illness and move on, undoubtedly recovered much faster than the patients who were negative or anxious, depressed etc.
In fact – look at all areas of life and you can see the same thing. How does your football team get on after they have had a couple of defeats – well often more losses will follow … that mind thing. The manager needs to work on their confidence and vision of winning again. Imagine it in a focused way and you will be halfway there.
In the last 10 years I learned a lot as I worked with Adam Eason:
As an example – I have watched my hypnotherapy friend Adam, help to change the mindset of smokers using self-hypnosis audios.
Take Chris – One of my friends who gave up smoking having just used the self-hypnosis smoking course that he bought from our Hypnosis For Download website. Within a couple of weeks I heard him talking to someone in the pub and saying he was a ‘non smoker’. His whole self-image and mindset had changed that rapidly.
What you begin to believe becomes the reality – in your mind and in the way you speak and act. The head chatter changes and works with you – you CAN control it.
I know that if you understand, and learn the skills and techniques, and apply them to change your mindset (control that head chatter) you will be able to overcome many personal issues. Even physical health conditions are helped with hypnosis.
My Seventies Decade
One of my three seventies projects that I am developing is to get as many people as possible using hypnosis and other mental therapeutic techniques skills.
I am NOT the man to do that though. All I have said above is just from me – and I am not trained in the hypnosis field.
BUT what I can do is point you to the best person in the field – Adam Eason. He could probably pick holes in what I have written above. I don’t care I am close to the mark.
