You Are Extraordinary!

April 20, 2021

I’m going to keep things short and to the point in this article. A quote I had shared on my Facebook a few years ago came up on my memories today, and I was reminded of its powerful message. It is by hypnotist Joseph Clough who said, “don’t settle for ordinary when the substance of you is extraordinary.”

Yes indeed, the substance of you, me, and everyone on this planet is extraordinary. That’s because the very substance that is in us, and that is our essence is the spirit of God. This truth is revealed in the Bible in Luke 17:21. It says “the kingdom of heaven (or some translations say the kingdom of God) is within you. Other translations say the kingdom of God is in your midst. I’ve written about this before, (here’s a link if you’re interested), but the dictionary definition of midst is the middle or central part. Other synonyms include the core of or the focal point of something. When you look deeper into the meaning of core, it is defined as the central or most important part of something. The part of something that is central to its existence or character.

This reminds me again, and I share with you, that the central part of us, or the core of who we really are is the spirit of God Himself. The Bible also says that this spirit is one of power and love, not one of timidity and fear. Take a moment to think about this. The core and essence of who you are is the spirit of God.

Now you see why that spirit is with you all of the time, wherever you are. It is in you and everyone else. Since you have this all-powerful, all-knowing spirit as your core wherever you are, how can you settle for anything less than greatness? It’s a rhetorical question because, even though I am more aware of this powerful spirit within me each day, I still find it way too easy to get caught up in the negativity of the world and sell myself short. It happens to most of us. However, the more you realize and focus on the fact that God’s spirit is the core of who you really are, the more positive and powerful you feel. You were made for greatness. You were made for excellence. You were made for success. And you were made to make a positive difference in this world. The great thing is that, since God’s wonderful, awesome spirit is already within you, you already have and already are all of these things! It’s just a matter of focusing on this truth more than focusing on the negativity and fear. That’s how this excellence manifests in your life.

I remind you one more time that the substance and core of you is extraordinary. You already have and already are greatness. Now go out there and demonstrate that greatness with faith and confidence to add positivity and joy to your world, and be a shining light to those who God puts in your path. He is with you the whole time, and you can do all things in His strength. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


I’m Having Brain Surgery

February 13, 2015

I very much appreciate your concern. I will admit that I am not getting real brain surgery, and I’m totally OK. Instead, I am going through the major process of purging negative thoughts and removing the blocks that are holding me back from living the ultimate life I am meant to live.

It’s like that for everyone. Many of us have mental blocks that hold us back. Those blocks are formed from various memories from earlier parts of our life. Unfortunately they cause us to believe we can’t accomplish our goals. We feel like we’re not good enough, not worthy, we are meant to be overweight and unhealthy, we’ll never make enough money, we’ll never find the ideal partner. It’s all because of these negative beliefs that have been engrained into our minds.

The key is to remove those blocks. Now please don’t go out and sign up for the next brain surgery appointment. Instead, do your own brain surgery. You can indeed remove those blocks that are holding you back from realizing your dreams. How? There are several ways you can do it. One is through displacement. You continually visualize positive scenes of what you desire. See it happening and feel the positive emotions of having what you want. The more you do this, the more your subconscious (which can’t tell the difference between a real or imagined event) believes it and you replace the negative thoughts that hold you back with positive empowering ones.

Another way I’ve used, especially lately, is hypnosis. This is the most powerful and effective way to remove limiting beliefs. I have used it to remove fears, develop confidence, and even heal injuries, and it has worked in every case. The key is to get yourself in a very relaxed state and get deep into your mind to figure out exactly what is holding you back, and replace those negative thoughts with positive ones.

I have learned to do self-hypnosis over the years. However, if you don’t believe you can hypnotize yourself, there are many resources that can help you:

  • Binaural Beats – These are available online or even on your smartphone. Binaural beats are used to put your mind in a state to either relax you or stimulate you depending on what you want to accomplish. For hypnosis they put your mind in a state that connects you with your subconscious mind and helps you accept new ideas easier. I use an app called Binaural Beats therapy beta by Giorgio Regni. I like this one because, besides the fact that it works, you can choose the situation you desire and it provides the matching beats.
  • Joseph Clough Complete Confidence course – I have been utilizing the services of this hypnotist often lately, and it is changing my life by the day. In part 3 of his 11 part confidence course, he has a powerful hypnosis which is the best I’ve ever used for “surgically” removing negative blocks and replacing them with empowering and faithful ones. I recommend you listen to this program. The hypnosis starts about halfway through it. You can access this and the entire course with the Joseph Clough smartphone app.

These are just some ways you can get started in performing your own brain surgery to remove unwanted thoughts and beliefs. If you want to go even further, I recommend this course by Joseph Clough to remove these beliefs even quicker, and move you towards your dream life much sooner than later.

I pray for a successful brain surgery for you. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


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

January 26, 2015

I have always been intrigued by 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 a 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 provides 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.

For more information, here is his website… Joseph Clough.

If you are looking for another guided approach, I recommend this program… The Secret of Deliberate Creation.

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