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 🙂

A Place You Can Have All of Your Desires

April 22, 2014

Don’t you wish there was a place where you could have anything you want? Your personal confidence is sky high. You have all the money you need and more. Your relationships are positive and mutually enriching. You are in the perfect career, loving the work you do. Your faith tells you that you can accomplish anything. You travel the world and enjoy the most beautiful sights.

What if I told you there is such a place? And that you can be there at any time. This place does exist, it”s fully accessible, and you control everything there.

Where is it? Please tell me, I hear you begging. This wonderful place is…. your imagination. One of God’s greatest gifts and blessings is the wonderful imagination he has given you. Is it not true? Can your imagination take you anywhere you want to be and provide you anything you could want?

The problem is that when many people leave their childhood, they leave the joy of their imagination behind. Small children have so much fun using their imagination, making themselves heroes, parents, athletes, cowboys, brides, you name it. They have so much fun living these experiences. They are not real, but they certainly make it as close as possible to being so.

I want to know who ever said that the fun has to stop after childhood. Last I heard no one ever made this rule, yet so many people avoid using this wonderful gift. It’s a wonderful gift for many reasons. I have also learned in the last few years that the imagination can be used to dramatically enhance our lives. Albert Einstein said that our imagination is the preview of our life’s coming attractions. Jesus Himself said that if we can imagine and believe our prayers and desires as already true, they will be answered.

One other great fact is that your subconscious mind does not know the difference between a real or imagined event. If you continually imagine something as true, your mind believes it, and your actions occur in conjunction, resulting in greater confidence and success.

So why not use your imagination to the fullest. Certainly use it to take you places you want to go and help you become the person you want to be. In addition, I recommend you use it deliberately to shape your mind, and develop the necessary faith to act on accomplishing your goals.

For more details and steps to use your imagination to its fullest, I suggest you check out my free e-book, “The Ease and Keys of Rapid Manifestation”

You can have anything you desire in life and you can be the person you’ve always wanted to be. Can you imagine?


Feel It Now

January 12, 2014

One of my major New Year’s intentions (I refuse to call them resolutions) for the past few years has been to “do it now”. This to combat my natural tendency to procrastinate. I’m still not perfect in that area, but I was able to drop it from my intention list for this year because I have learned to “act now” on a much more regular basis. It’s simply a matter of continuing that momentum.

In recent years, I have also been taught another concept, one that I haven’t quite mastered. However, when I follow it I am almost guaranteeing the realization of what I want to accomplish. I share this with you today because the same is true for you. If you can get the hang of this idea and utilize it regularly, you are personally inviting the manifestation of your dream life.

The concept is to “feel it now”. What this means is to determine what you want, and deliberately feel the feelings you would feel as if you already had what you desire. For example, I am looking to double my income this year. How will I feel when this happens? I will feel freedom from debt, major gratitude towards God, the good feelings of giving to others, the joy of knowing I can enjoy my favorite activities more, such as going out to dinner, attending sporting events, more travel, etc. The key for me on a regular basis would be to imagine already having the extra money, then feeling and being thankful, joyful, and free. If I do this on a consistent basis, I will rapidly speed up the manifestation process.

I am now practicing my mind-reading skills and can hear you wondering…how can simply imagining the accomplishment of my goal and feeling the feelings bring it about when I am not even close to having it yet? It’s all about something I’ve discussed frequently on this blog. It’s all about the subconscious mind. Manifesting your desires is all about faith and believing that something can happen. If you look back on all of your greatest accomplishments in life, you will see that you believed in its possibility, and you then worked to make it happen. When you envision yourself accomplishing a goal and feel the corresponding positive emotions, you convince the subconscious that it is actually happening. The coolest thing is that your subconscious cannot tell the difference between a real or imagined event, so it is taking your visions and feelings as true. As a result, your faith increases, and with faith all things are possible.

Another question you may be asking is…what about taking action? Isn’t faith without works dead? I have found that if you follow the steps above, and your faith is made strong, the action becomes automatic. People procrastinate mostly because they don’t know exactly what needs to be accomplished, and because they don’t have faith in their ability to make it happen. By imagining and feeling, you know exactly what you want, and you now have the faith in your ability to bring it about. At this point, I recommend you ask yourself what action you believe you need to take. Consider it and pray about it. Once you feel led to act, do so as quickly as possible. With the added faith and confidence you now have, your actions are much more likely to be successful. Even if obstacles arise (which they will) you will have the strength to get around them. As you see more success and see yourself getting closer to your goal, your faith and confidence will build even more, and you will be more eager to act until you reach your promised land.

I can write for hours on this topic. Until recently, I have known this information, but didn’t apply it consistently. Since I have done it consistently, I have noticed an almost immediate difference. It is amazing how powerful your feelings are. When you bring yourself to experience the positive feelings and emotions you will feel upon the manifestation of your goal, you will feel that way on a much more regular basis. That is because your dream will quickly become reality, and those feelings will be a regular, automatic part of your being. I challenge you to try this for yourself and see how true this is. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


A New Way To Measure Success This Year

January 5, 2014

One of my favorite and most helpful authors is Dr. Robert Anthony. His advice on how to utilize the power of the mind has been a great help to me and many others in bringing life to a higher level.

I am on Dr. Anthony’s mailing list, and I regularly receive gems of information from him. This is one of the best yet, and I wanted to share it with you. Here’s to your success : )

Hi Joe,

I wanted to take a moment to say Happy New Year to you and yours…

Are ready for a great New Year?

To help you get off to a running start I would like you to consider changing
your perception of WHAT SUCCESS MEANS TO YOU!

As I mature and have a better understanding of how things work, I have
come to understand that HOW WE MEASURE SUCCESS will determine our
happiness, or lack of it.

We tend to MEASURE SUCCESS in relation to achieving our goals.  In other
words, we set a goal and if we achieve it, we are happy and satisfied.  If we
don’t, we feel like a failure.  This creates anxiety, fear and sometimes even depression.

You will never be happy or satisfied if you keep focusing on what you DON’T HAVE,
or what you have NOT ACHIEVED.

Instead, consider this…

The way to MEASURE SUCCESS, and still be happy and satisfied, is to look at
WHERE YOU HAVE COME FROM.

In other words, LOOK BACK and notice how you have IMPROVED in any area of your
life – even if it is a VERY SMALL improvement.

If you LOOK BACK and celebrate your INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS, the next
steps become so much easier, because you are happy and satisfied right now.

So, if you did not achieve everything you wanted last year, when you finish reading this,
take a look at the INCREMENTAL IMPROVEMENTS you have made and give yourself
a pat on the back. Make a short list and then give yourself some credit instead of focusing
on what went wrong or did not happen.

Seriously. I mean it.  MAKE THAT LIST. I’m watching you!

Start this New Year with the feeling that you have already started to make some incremental
improvements and that you are ready for more.  NEVER, I repeat NEVER, judge yourself.
Give yourself credit for what you have accomplished – no matter how small those accomplishments
may seem.

This will get you off to great start this year because you will START OFF with a sense of
ACCOMPLISHMENT instead of a sense of failure – which is never useful.  If you build on your
incremental accomplishments you can do EVEN BETTER this year than you did last year.

Before I sign off I want to share a quote of mine with you…

“Any dream that can pass through one’s screen of logic into the Subconscious and is earnestly
desired, can be obtained”.
– Dr. Robert Anthony

Once you give up all the “logical reasons” why something cannot work for you and allow your
new dream or goal to enter your Subconscious,  it’s an idea whose time has come.  If you truly
desire it and your Subconscious agrees to it – it’s yours!

Cheers For a Great New Year,

Dr. Robert Anthony

Which Is The Best State?

June 30, 2013

What state do you live in? Hopefully whatever state it is, you would say it’s the best. I know that I strive to live in the best state on a regular basis.

Wait a minute, you might say. How can you strive to live in the best state? I understand. However, I’m not going where you think I may be going with this. Here’s the state I’m talking about. It’s the state of….mind. As in always striving for the best state of mind.

I am being reminded a great deal lately how state of mind affects quality of life. When you are regularly in the best state of mind, your quality of life increases dramatically.

I will add one important piece of the puzzle. Did you know that what you desire is also a state of mind? For example, happy people are regularly in that joyful state of mind. Wealthy people have a wealth mindset. Fit people have a healthy mindset.

Here lies one of the great keys to success and achieving your goals. The key is to put yourself in that state of mind, and maintain it. For example, if you are seeking to lose weight and become more healthy, put yourself in that state of mind. Envision yourself at the weight you want to be. Put and keep yourself in a healthy state of mind. Act as a fit, healthy person would. What happens then is you subconsciously develop the habits that fit people do. As you think accordingly, you begin to automatically act accordingly. That’s when the results begin to show.

It’s the same with anything else in life. If you are seeking greater wealth, develop a wealth mindset. Visualize yourself with money and enjoying the benefits of it. Dress the part, and enjoy the new-found confidence you would have if the extra money was actually in your pocket. Once again, it eventually becomes part of your subconscious thinking, and you begin to act accordingly, being drawn to the money you are seeking.

I can go on with different examples. If you want happiness, smile, be happy and think happy thoughts. If you want more friends, be a good friend yourself. If you are seeking greater freedom, be the person you would be if you actually had it. It’s all about being what you want. When you are in the best state of mind, you don’t have to worry about what action to take. You just do it, taking inspired action towards the attainment of our desire.

Now that you have this information, I ask again…which is the best state?  I think you can answer that it’s the best state of mind that will bring you to your desire. Now if you will excuse me, I have some things to take care of here in the state of New York. Have an excellent day : )


How Do You Feel About Your Wishes Coming True?

April 6, 2013

Think of one of your greatest wishes. How would you feel if it came true? That’s the question of the day.

Please don’t think of a one word, 10 second answer. Seriously think about it. How would it feel? What does it look like? Where are you? Who are you with? What are you doing? How does it sound? Can you taste or smell anything? How does it feel to the touch? Play this scene in your mind. Live it, experience it, and feel every positive emotion. It’s a great experience isn’t it?

What you just did is something known as creative visualization. Living out your desire as if it’s actually happening. What you also did was bring that desire much closer to you. How? It’s all part of the Law of Attraction and the power of your mind. The more your subconscious mind sees your wish being realized and feels the excitement and joy of it, the more it believes it. The more you believe it. And when you believe it, you are much more likely to put yourself in the position to make it happen. The Law of Attraction has a lot of factors. Basically, when you feel the positive emotions of your desire being realized, conditions align themselves to make it more likely. I see it a bit differently. I see it as God rewarding your faith, and arranging the situations to answer your prayer.

To make this work, spend as much time as you can today answering the introductory question…”how would I feel when”…you fill in the blank with your wish. Then spend as much time as possible feeling the way you would feel. Focus on those feelings of joy, accomplishment, freedom, energy, or whatever it is. It may not bring your wish today, but I can attest that it will make you more happy and joyful just from the enjoyment of this experience. And when you are happy and joyful, great things happen anyway!

I know from experience that this process works. Not only does it bring more joy to my day, but it brings me to my life’s desires, and I am amazed every time when they are realized! I will also say that if my exact wish is not realized, it either happens later, or I receive something better. The same is true for you. You can’t lose!

I would love to hear about what your greatest wishes are and how it would feel when they are accomplished (notice how I didn’t say if). I invite you to share, and I will certainly pray for their fulfillment. May every wish come true : )


Empower Your Mind At The Beach

March 18, 2013

I live in Buffalo New York. We are known for our snow and difficult winters. For the first three months of each year I spend a great deal of time dreaming about the beach, and finding ways to get me there. Usually it’s done through video, photos, etc. This year is no different.

I am also a firm believer in using positive affirmations to impact my subconscious mind. When your mind is filled with positive, powerful thoughts, the inspired action follows, and you are much more likely to gain success.

I found a wonderful video/audio that helps the listener accomplish both the beach and positive affirmations at the same time. I especially like this program because the positive messages are subliminal. They are embedded in the ocean sounds. This is important because it prevents the subconscious from rejecting the positive ideas. For example, if someone doesn’t believe they are smart, they don’t believe it when someone tells them how intelligent they are. They reject the idea of intelligence because they think they are not. However, once the mind hears something often enough, it starts to believe it. What this program does is feed the brain with 30 minutes of positive thoughts. Ultimately, these are the thoughts that dominate the mind.

I find it best to listen to this at bedtime. It is extremely relaxing as I feel like I am laying right next to the ocean. I can feel the warmth of the beach and the positive feelings it brings. It’s so relaxing that I sometimes fall asleep. However, even if I do, positive affirmations are still being poured into my mind. Affirmations such as:

I am unlimited
My life flows with harmony
Life is full of wonderful opportunities
I am open to divine guidance
I naturally succeed
Unlimited abundance awaits me
And many more

I encourage you to relax with this program. Spend time experiencing the positive feelings it brings. You may ask, does this type of subliminal affirmation really work? I can’t answer exactly. However, I can tell you that I feel much more positive and energetic the mornings after I listen to it. For me, it definitely works in a positive way. Ultimately, I believe the same would happen for you. Please let me know what you think. I’d also appreciate you sharing any similar types of programs or techniques that help you. In the meantime, have an excellent day : )
