A Bloomington Park, MN

Today’s Friday Photo comes from a Bloomington park, MN. Norman had it right. There is no synthetic medicine more powerful than your body and mind’s ability to heal. Just like these winter trees will be green again in Spring, so does your body rejuvenate itself

Unconvincing Yourself

Featured Video Play Icon

https://youtu.be/aHi6PCA_ZbY I was teaching self-hypnosis to a client last week and an old definition for hypnosis came into my mind: The ability to convince yourself, or unconvince yourself of something. I laughed when I realized how good people are at self-hypnosis – negative self-hypnosis. The most powerful suggestions are the ones you give to yourself. […]

Expectations

https://youtu.be/w65ki1O38Dc It’s true that people rise or lower to meet expectations. When you give someone, or are given a label, that’s a strong expectation.  What labels have you been given, or have given yourself?  A pain sufferer  A victim A person who has “this” disease or diagnosis (fill in the blank) Fat, poor, stupid, fearful […]

Headache Pain

https://youtu.be/u73FTasjwUs I just finished working with a client who has constant headaches. The doctors couldn’t find anything wrong. They said he’d have to live with it. He’s 12. That’s not a life sentence I’d want. There’s a tremendous amount of quality research that shows the efficacy of hypnosis for pain management. I’m always excited when […]

https://youtu.be/oF_2K6EyrkM At the end of 2021, I posted a couple of blogs about emotions. I’m in my 10th year of practice, and find that emotions are at the heart of almost every issue my clients have. In the text below this video, you’ll find the Emotional Ladder chart (from Ask and It Is Given). Here’s […]

Focus on What You Want

https://youtu.be/AtILac0srQA Today I want to talk about focus. Focus is so important because what you focus on expands.  Have you ever gotten a new car or decided to take a trip to somewhere you’ve never been, then all of a sudden you see that car and that place everywhere? The car and the place have […]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZuGBB15Pi4c Covid was a frightening and tragic time in our history. So many people died and experienced losses of many kinds.  But I’m of the belief that benefits can be found in every situation, even from terrible events. My clients prove that to me every day. It is when they can see the benefits from […]

Hypnosis and Neuropathy

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H86GHiPBotc The efficacy of hypnosis for pain management is well-researched. Today I’d like to talk about neuropathy. There’s a lot of technical explanations as to why people experience this kind of pain, but I like to keep it simple, so here goes. All sensations of pain originate in the brain. Yes, your brain. It feels […]

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fmx3UkBz71I I read an article by a colleague, Rebecca Rishe and I wanted to share some of her thoughts with you about your magnificent brain. Your brain weighs about 2-lbs., 10-oz. It is estimated to contain around 15 billion transistorized cells, each of which has the capacity to store more than 100,000 bits of information. […]

Hypnosis and Cleaning out your Garage

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jCFDFpj-TH0 Sadie told me she was headed to Wisconsin’s 100 mile garage sale this weekend. I cannot wrap my head around that concept, but it got me thinking about the old adage “One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.” Any given item at a garage sale, let’s say a lamp shade, can be viewed as […]
