The Power of Hypnosis…And What it Can Do For You

January 26, 2015

I have always been intrigued with the concept of hypnosis. Ever since I was a teenager I have used it to enhance the quality of my life and remove some of the negative behaviors and habits I’ve had.

When you discuss hypnosis, it sometimes brings up negative ideas or misunderstandings. Some people still see hypnosis as someone swinging a pendulum and “getting sleepy”, or using it to make people do crazy things they have no idea they are doing. There are also some ethical and religious concerns, as some might see it as ungodly, or trying to control what God should be doing for you. For more about this question, check out the article I wrote recently, Is Hypnosis Appropriate For Christians?

The bottom line is that hypnosis can be extremely powerful and potentially life-changing. Its main goal is to influence the subconscious mind. It is this part of your mind that controls your beliefs, and ultimately your actions. If you have negative ideas in your subconscious, hypnosis can change them, and ultimately cause you to take action to create the positive results you are seeking.

I have been using hypnosis since I was teenager. It has positively impacted my life in several different ways. Here are some examples:

  • It has brought me greater confidence. I was a mostly shy teenager that lacked confidence in myself. Using hypnosis consistently helped me become a person that I liked and others enjoyed being with. It still helps me maintain that confidence today.
  • It removed fears. I had some embarrassing fears that many teenagers don’t have. I used hypnosis with the intention to rid those fears, and they were gone in a matter of weeks.
  • It removed bad habits from my life.
  • It healed my body. I have used hypnosis to heal injuries and remove stress. In most cases the healing was nearly immediate.

These are specific examples of how hypnosis has impacted me directly. I know others that have used this powerful tool to quit smoking, lose weight, and even find a better job. The potential is endless. Whatever it is you are trying to change or bring about in your life, you can use hypnosis to rapidly manifest your desires.

Up until recently, I mainly hypnotized myself. However, I have found some excellent programs that guide me and enhance the power of hypnosis. One person that I feel very comfortable with is Joseph Clough. Joseph is an internationally known hypnotist who provide a great deal of excellent information on personal development, along with hypnosis tracks to speed up the manifestation process. I love listening to his strong British accent, and he presents himself with the attitude of a friend just dropping by for a chat. I will say that he knows his stuff, and he knows it well. I have read his book, “Be Your Potential” and used his hypnosis tracks. He provides very simple mind-enhancing techniques that can be implemented immediately. The results soon follow.

I recommend you tapping into the power of hypnosis. It has made positive impacts in my life and it will in yours as well. Enjoy the blessings 🙂

Where Can I Find God?

January 20, 2015

One of the more powerful and comforting verses in the Bible is Matthew 6:33 which says to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well (these things are your concerns and needs of life mentioned in the verses before).

I find a great peace in this, knowing that simply seeking God and His kingdom allows everything else to fall in line. I love the awesome possibility that the manifestation of your desires will follow your conscious effort to focus on God’s presence and kingdom.

It seems simple enough, but people will often ask the serious question…where do I find God? It’s a valid question, especially if you are new to idea of seeking God in the first place. Where can you find God? How can you find God? Each day, I get a greater grasp on the answer to this question. He is everywhere and a part of everything and everybody. He’s part of you and part of me. He created the trees you see in the park,and the beautiful sunset you admired the other night. His hands move the waves of the ocean. Even the snow that I am already sick of this winter is His beautiful creation.

As you can realize, it’s very easy to find God. No matter where you look or where you go He is there. Another great way to find Him is to ask for His presence, assistance, peace, or anything. The great thing is that when you actively seek God, He will reveal Himself to you and allow you to find Him.

Here’s one new part of this old equation I’ve recently discovered… I’m starting to see it as a main reason you receive everything else when you seek God. The idea that when you seek God, you are in essence seeking and finding everything else. It’s because God is in everything. God is the creator and essence of the extra money you are seeking. He is the creator and essence of the relationship you desire. He is all about perfect health, free of disease and stress, and full of love, joy, and confidence. He’s created both the dream and job of the dream job you are pursuing. The list goes on.

The bottom line is that when you seek God you will find Him. And you will also find everything else in the process. Enjoy the blessings.


Why Your Affirmations Won’t Work

January 13, 2015

I am a firm believer in the power of using affirmations to make positive changes in my life. In case you don’t know, affirmations are words and phrases you use and repeat to impact the subconscious mind. The key is that as your beliefs change, you take the necessary actions to make the changes happen.

The problem is that sometimes positive affirmations can do more harm than good. I have had people tell me that affirmations have made things worse for them. It has happened for me too.

So why should I continue to use positive affirmations? I recently wrote an article for an ezine about the topic. I share the link with you here….

How to Avoid the Negative Effects of Positive Affirmations

I certainly hope this helps you use positive affirmations to take those steps towards reaching your goals. I invite you to share with us what works for you. Enjoy your blessings today 🙂


The Biggest Mistake Goal-Setters Make

January 5, 2015

At the time I am writing this article, we are still only days into a new year. Optimism reigns as people make New Years resolutions and set new goals for the coming year, hoping to make positive changes in their lives.

This may be something you do on a regular basis, or perhaps it’s your first attempt at major goal-setting. Perhaps you are reading this in the middle of the year as you set some type of goal. Regardless, I believe the information presented here can help you as it has me.

There is a major problem in setting goals. I’ve been guilty of it, and many other people haven’t reached their goals because of it. It stems from the last line in paragraph 1. The problem is hoping to make changes. How often have you done it? You set a goal, and instead of pursuing it with confidence, you hope and wonder if it’s something that will ever be realized, and end up procrastinating and avoiding the action you need to get there.

At this point you may ask how do you get around the doubts and take focused action instead simply hoping to accomplish the goal? One of the best bits of advice I’ve ever heard is one I picked up from listening to an Anthony Robbins audio. His advice was to simply make the goal a must. In other words, no maybes. No hoping. You need to have an attitude that you will do whatever it takes to make this goal happen, along with the faith of knowing that it can and will happen.

In her book “You Are a Badass”, Jen Sincero provides similar advice. She says to place your full focus on the goal, decide with unwavering faith that it will happen, and do all you know how to do, regardless of how much or how little it is.

If you are not one for advice from modern authors, how about one from the Bible? The apostle James says that when you ask God for wisdom (or anything else) you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea blown and tossed by the wind. That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.

I don’t know about you, but I want positive responses from my Lord. I want the benefits of His power, not His rejection because I don’t have the faith that my goal can be accomplished. How do you receive that Godly backing and a rapid manifestation of your desire? Follow the advice of these authors. Go all in. Don’t think for a second that there’s a way out. Make it a must, a no way around it, a definite accomplishment that WILL happen, not one that might happen.

I know from personal experience that when I approach goals like this, they become my reality. The key is to have this mentality for all of your goals, no matter how big or small they are. As you set your expectations (I prefer this term over resolutions) be sure to avoid the mistake of placing maybes over them. Instead, develop the mindset that there is no option of these goals failing to materialize. Be single-minded, full of the faith and willingness to act to make it come true. That combination can only make it happen. Please share your success stories when they do. Enjoy the blessings 🙂

I also remind you of another way you can jumpstart your desired success in reaching your goals. This free resource contains the formula that has helped me and countless others rapidly manifest their goals. Click here for your free copy…

2015 New Years Expectations

January 2, 2015

2015 pic

Once again it’s time for my annual post to look ahead to the coming (now arrived) year. As I’ve mentioned in the past, I refuse to call these goals New Years resolutions. Expectation has the thought that it is going to get done, not the “maybe” shadow of a resolution. Here’s what’s on my mind and what I would like to accomplish in the coming year. If you share of any of these goals, I hope some of my thoughts and ideas of can help you and we can reach these goals together:

  • All action, no talk – Unfortunately, I still have much of a reputation for being the opposite. I don’t know if it’s lingering fear, the Pisces in me, or a still lacking confidence, but up ’til now I’ve still had the strong capacity to talk a big game but procrastinate in acting towards it. This year it’s time to maintain an action based focus. It’s about being a doer of the Word, and not only starting the action, but seeing it through to completion.
  • Focus on vibration and high emotion – I share often about the importance of maintaining a high vibration. When we remain high on the emotional scale, we open ourselves up for unlimited blessings. As well as I am aware of this, there are still too many times where I leave my emotions on automatic pilot and let much time go by without catching myself on the lower vibrational plane. I make the expectation to check in at least hourly, and bring myself to the highest vibrational level as often as possible. Another way to make this happen is to live in the present moment. Without the guilt of the past or the worries of the future, it is much easier to maintain a positive focus and the highest emotions.
  • Be more “others” focused – I truly love people. I am blessed with the most wonderful family and core of friends, and I also love meeting and bringing light to people from all over the world. The reason I have this blog in the first place is to share the abundant wisdom I have learned to help you and everyone reading this to live a more joyful and abundant life. Upon saying that, I will share that I still consider myself to be a selfish person. I say this because my focus is still too much of what’s in it for me. On one hand, it is important to maintain a self focus (see bullet #2). However, the what’s in it for me part will be taken care of automatically as long my focus is instead on how can I help others get what they want. What action can I take now to bring value into as many lives as possible?
  • 1000 daily blog visitors – Now I move on to the concrete goals. This one has been a goal for some time now and it is ambitious since I am nowhere close at this point. To go hand in hand with the other goals, taking consistent action, remaining in a high vibrational state, living with an “as if” mentality, and keeping the focus on building up others, I certainly expect that it will happen.
  • Stabilize my job situation – Ok, I may have to be careful who’s watching with this one 🙂 For the past year I have been working two jobs, both which exhaust me with many negative people and situations. I realize I am blessed to have them, as some people are desperately looking for any job, and they have contributed to a major improvement in my finances. At the same time, it’s time to do work that I will enjoy, contribute to many people in the world, permit me more freedom and time with family and friends, and provide the income to bless my family for necessities (my oldest daughter starts college in the Fall), and leisure. I expect to have that type of work this year.

I thank you for staying with me in this journey inside the mind of this author. Once again, I will say that if you share any of these goals, I invite you to contribute ideas about how you plan on achieving your expectations. Even if your exact goals are different, I would love to share this journey of taking life to the highest level possible with as many people as I can. Together we can make a difference and enjoy a very blessed and prosperous 2015. Enjoy the blessings 🙂
