  In this day and age, people are becoming more and more "busy". Work, personal life, gym, social life, taxes, taking care of the kids or pets (Perhaps both). In the midst of all that is swirling around us outside of ourselves, at times we can forget the goals that we would like to accomplish. Even if someone is happy with their life, there is always those goals that people push to the side that would provide a better way of living. But with all of the daily commitments, how can one find the time and the energy to focus and manifest their goals into reality.

  Our minds are powerful tools. All that it takes is tapping into that power to begin bringing more of what you want into your life.

  This is an exercise that I use with clients in the clinic who have a hard time manifesting what they desire. Its excellent to really bring your goals into focus. Use it to help gain more insight and clarity.
 

  • Take a few pieces of blank paper
  • Like an author, begin to right a story about your current situation
  • Write about your feelings, thoughts, concerns about the present. Remember, it is where you are now! When you are writing, get all of your senses involved. What do you see? What do you hear? Feel? Smell? Taste? Make it as real as you can!
  • In your story, begin to write the future out come. Write about what it is that you want to achieve in your life. Make it realistic and believable.
  • As part of the story, write down all of the steps that you took to achieve those goals and aspirations. Finish the story with you accomplishing your goal. In the ending of the story write down what you see, hear, feel, smell and taste. See the difference between where you are now and where you are going.
  • Keep your story in a safe, private place. Focus on the ending of the story when you have accomplished your goal when you need to remind yourself of the direction you are moving in! It will instantly reset your mind onto the track of success!!!

Hypnosis helps healing:
Surgical wounds mend faster

By William J. Cromie 
Harvard University Gazette

Marie McBrown was invited to test whether or not hypnosis would help heal the scars from her breast surgery. Marie (not her real name) and 17 other women underwent surgery to reduce their breast size.

It's a common operation for women whose breasts are large enough to cause back and shoulder strain, interfere with routine tasks, or prompt social and psychological problems. The pain and course of healing from such surgery is well-known, and a team of researchers headed by Carol Ginandes of Harvard Medical School and Patricia Brooks of the Union Institute in Cincinnati wanted to determine if hypnosis could speed wound healing and recovery.

"Hypnosis has been used in Western medicine for more than 150 years to treat everything from anxiety to pain, from easing the nausea of cancer chemotherapy to enhancing sports performance," Ginandes says. A list of applications she provides includes treatment of phobias, panic, low self-esteem, insomnia, sexual dysfunction, stress, smoking, colitis, warts, headaches, and high blood pressure.

"All these functional uses may help a person feel better," Ginandes continues. "I am also interested in using hypnosis to help people get better physically. That means using the mind to make structural changes in the body, to accelerate healing at the tissue level."

Four years ago, Ginandes and Daniel Rosenthal, professor of radiology at the Harvard Medical School, published a report on their study of hypnosis to speed up the mending of broken bones. They recruited 12 people with broken ankles who did not require surgery and who received the usual treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. In addition, Ginandes hypnotized half of them once a week for 12 weeks, while the other half received only normal treatment. The same doctor applied the casts and other care, and the same radiologists took regular X-rays to monitor how well they healed. A radiologist who evaluated the X-rays did not know which patients underwent hypnosis.

The result stood out like a sore ankle. Those who were hypnotized healed faster than those who were not. Six weeks after the fracture, those in the hypnosis group showed the equivalent of eight and a half weeks of healing.
