2015 is almost here. What are your dreams and resolutions for the coming year?
Will you try to quit smoking or maybe try to lose weight. These are two common New Year resolutions among many.
Others include not drinking as much, saving more, spending less, being a better person and.....the list goes on and on. In fact there are probably as many Mew Year resolutions as there are people.
Everyone has a different perspective on what that change means.
BUT, the big question is........
after making them how will you implement them in a way that makes them stick?
Whatever happened to the simple life of being a child?
There are so many pressures being applied to children these days it seems. One of these is the pressure to perform for selection at schools.
Recently I was contacted by a concerned Mum about her 9 year old daughter suffering anxiety, to the extent that the young girl became too ill to attend school. The cause?
A school test call NAPLAN. Apparently the school that the young girl wanted to go to uses the results of NAPLAN tests as part of their selection process.
That’s the old saying by Henry Ford. It came
back to mind as I was on my morning run yesterday. The weather was a little
cool at 5.30am, (Gold Coast 15C, cool...not cold).
The sky was dark and I was
already procrastinating on my 8klm run.
I kicked my self into gear, got moving
eventually and headed across the road to the beach.
Funny how the mind can try to
trick you. From the moment I began to run the thoughts kept coming....you can
turn back and exercise at home.....your ankle is sore...
Have you ever wondered how much time it
takes for a smoker to become a non smoker?
This may be especially important to
know if you are the smoker considering to
make that decision to change.
Clients come to see me to create that type
of change, as well as many others, and they ask me how many sessions will it
take to work?
The answer is “It depends”.
There are a few
factors at play. The clients level of desire to create change, the level of
willingness to participate in the hypnosis session.
Pain....it can be a terrible thing. It might be that you have had an accident or illness as the cause and you are stuck on pain killers.
OR, as in the video link attached, you could have decided to have a body piercing and didn't want to feel the pain.
What makes the difference between feeling pain and not feeling pain?
That's an interesting question, isn't it? And the answer is....
Well, we experience life through the filter of our beliefs. We represent to ourselves what the world means .
It happens at almost every show And in many one on one or group therapy sessions. Someone will come up and ask me "What if I can't be hypnotised?" or tell me"You can't hypnotise me!"
Both interesting questions and demonstrate that many people today are confused about what hypnosis is, and also , what it isn't"
Lets start with what hypnosis is.
It is a state of deep relaxation where the volunteer is so focused on the hypnotist's voice that they simply block everything else out.
Sometimes you can see great insights in simple things.
Take kid's movies for example. Like Kung Fu Panda.
Here is this panda, called Po, who works in a noodle shop.
All the time he is dreaming of being a kung fu master.
When he wakes from his dreams he is just a panda.
And yet, he still dreams of his goal in his waking moments.
An opportunity comes for him to train with the greats.
The turtle grand master decrees him to be the Dragon Warrior.
The trainer puts Po through his paces and discovers that Po is really
Are you one of those people who weigh themselves on the scales regularly?
Did you know that it actually makes your situation worse not better?
My statement is based on the statement "you tend to get more of what you focus on".
Even if you are focusing on moving away from something. You tend to get more of it because that's where you focus is. May sound a little crazy but it's true.
If we dig a little deeper for an explanation or a contributing factor then we will do well to refer to Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr Maxwell Maltz.
If you have had enough of looking in the mirror and not enjoying the reflection of an overweight body......if you don't like the feeling of wearing baggy clothes to cover yourself up......if you are thinking about Christmas and dreading the thought of eating your way through it....
Then it may be time to make a change for the better.
What if you could work on your weight while you sleep?
What if you enjoyed eating the right foods for you without having to think about it?
Imagine how much more you could be enjoying life!
