Saint Patricks Day 2012 Issue

May the Luck of the Irish be with you . . . .

It’s Tuesday morning at 5:30AM as I’m writing this. In Nawlins (the way New Orleans is pronounced, all one world) they are “kickin it” to celebrate Marti Gras and tomorrow is Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the Lenten season for Christians. The press has been relentless with stories about Whitney Houston’s funeral, her poor daughter and how much everyone hates Bobbie Brown.

As always the tragedy when someone dies of a drug overdose (and even it she died of natural causes, the years of taking large mounts of acidic, poisonous drugs takes it’s toll upon the body) is that the pharmaceuticals legal and illegal that she took are merely artificial substitutes for the chemicals that the brain can and does produce. The real tragedy of drug addiction is that through complementary medicine: meditation, acupuncture, The Journey Method (a process of releasing stored repressed cellular memories which are often at the root of many physical problems), and NLP-hypnotherapy, a person can learn to easily change their state. They can literally bathe themselves in endorphins and positive brain juices just by learning to change their state.

One of the quickest easiest ways to change your state is with a procedure that I learned from Tony Robbins called “The Morning Questions.” Each morning when you wake up you begin the day by standing up and answering for yourself these 6 questions: What can I choose to be happy about; excited about; proud of; joyful about, committed to and loving toward in my life today? With each answer to these questions you associate to your answer, see what you see, hear what you hear, say in your head what you normally say to yourself, and literally feel in your body the emotions of happiness, excitement, pride, joy, commitment and love. By answering these questions differently on a daily basis, you become practiced or should I say conditioned to go into these states easier and easier.

I like to say that all emotions have positive purposes for us including grief and sadness otherwise God has a cruel sense of humor. The problem is that sometimes we practice or are anchored/conditioned into going into the contractive emotions (see page 2 for an explanation of Contractive and Expansive emotions) until they become a way of life. Each emotion is a tool and they work well for their purpose, but if your toaster is broken, the chainsaw is the wrong tool to use. And it is for this reason that it is so important to learn to control our states.

Deepak Chopra says: “when your body is bathed in the expansive emotions, it is literally healing itself, even of cancer. When your body is bathed in contractive emotions it literally creating sickness in your body. The chemistry in your body of expansive emotions is literally the chemistry of healing.”

“When you are inspired by some great purpose, some extraordinary project, all your thoughts break their bonds: Your mind transcends limitations, your consciousness expands in every direction, and you find yourself in a new, great, and wonderful world. Dormant forces, faculties and talents become alive, and your discover yourself to be a greater person by far than you ever dreamed yourself to be.”

~~ Patanjali THE YOGA SUTRA ~~

With the High Holiday of Saint Patrick’s day (You’ll find me at Jeff Chrystal’s Overture Restaurant in the DeYor eating a veggie ruben. It is T-H-E place to be on St. Pats day) here before you know it I’ve been thinking quite a bit about The Luck of The Irish, or for that matter luck itself.

“When you work seven days a week, fourteen hours a day, you get lucky.” ~~ Armand Hammer Industrialist .

Often in life there are people that are seen to be lucky, things seem to fall into their lap and everything seems to go their way. The famed Yoga master Patanjali who expounded and may have written the famed Yoga Sutra as quoted above was speaking of spiritual development in the above quote but it is the same for any goal that one sets for them selves. If we examine the quote we find that the key to luck is “inspiration toward some great purpose or extraordinary project.”

When you are inspired, totally committed and able to see yourself achieving and accomplishing you goals your mind transcends limitations, dormant forces that have been stored with you and talents you were not aware existed are activated & you find yourself to be more than you believed yourself to be. This is the power of decision and commitment.

The question is how does one get to the place where they are inspired to take action? There are many ways and most of them take quite a considerable amount of time. One of the quickest ways though is through the use of self-hypnosis and creative visualization.

Through the process of self-hypnosis you continuously re-implant thoughts and images into your psyche, until you begin to believe that it is impossible for you to not achieve your goal. I first learned of this process through the book THINK AND GROW RICH and it was perfected by the master hypnotist Dr. Dave Dobson. I’ll be teaching CREATING YOUR OWN LUCK in a workshop in March. If you’re interested give me a call at 330-501-8599 for more information.

Expansive and Contractive Emotions

Skip Lackey under whom I’m so proud to have studied The Journey Method which literally began my personal adventure into a serious study and practice of mind/body medicine first used the terms Expansive Emotions and Contractive Emotions. I do not know whether he coined the term or learned it from Brandon Bays, founder of The Journey or from someone else so I just give the credit to Skip.

Some emotions, which we often call negative emotions like hurt, pain and sadness cause us to contract. We become introverted, less open closed off to others and the world to different degrees. Contractive emotions cause us to hold things in and we become less because of them.

There are other emotions that we often call positive emotions such as love, gratitude and compassion that cause us to become even more expansive, more open, more free, and more courageous in our willingness to relate to others honestly. These emotions cause us to become greater people.

Each emotion has a purpose, when someone we loves passes feeling grief is part of the healing and accepting process but it should not be someplace that we live in. By learning how and practicing the expansive emotions on a regular basis we become more open, loving and successful human beings.

Help a friend out and get them FREE NLP-hypnotherapy

One of my business goals is to improve my website by adding case-studies of the many issues that I’ve had success dealing with in the past.

NLP-hypnotherapy is useful for dealing with many issues such as: *agoraphobia, allergies, anger management, bed wetting, childbirth, chronic pain, dental procedures, distress, *examination anxiety, exercise, fears, focused attention, grief, guided imagery, *headache, *high blood pressure, learning skills, *medical procedures, memory, motivation, nail biting, performing arts, *phobias, *P.T.S.D., procrastination, public speaking, peaceful sleep, regression, relationship, relaxation, salesmanship, self confidence, self control, self esteem, sexual enhancement, smoking cessation, sports performance, stress management, study skills, stuttering, & weight loss and I’ve dealt with many of this issues, but not all of them, simply because no one with these issues has come to me as a client, yet.

So from time-to-time I may request that any Optimum Health Inner Circle member that has a specific issue or can recommend someone that has an issue that I’ve not dealt with I’ll be willing to work with them at no cost. That’s right for FREE if they are willing to allow me to write up their case as a case-study and post it on my website with a testimonial letter.

With all that being said, I’m looking for someone that is dealing with Agoraphobia which often manifests itself as the inability to leave the house but might manifest as the ability to leave the house but not leave their neighborhood or town.

Most often someone dealing with agoraphobia is in the care of a psychologist, psychotherapist or medical doctor. If they are under such care, require a letter from the therapist stating that they know and approve of our working together.

If you know of anyone that is sick and tired of the self limitations identified as agoraphobia or if you have the problem yourself, please contact me at 330-501-8599 as your soonest convenience.
