What Helps Me To Succeed

If you’re a regular reader, you probably know by now that I have been doing self-hypnosis for a number of months now. There are a couple of websites that I’ve found that purvey hypnosis downloads, but the one that I get most of my sessions from is Hypnosis Downloads in Oban, Scotland. They’ve been around the longest (since 1995, online since 2003) and have the most materials (over 800 downloads).

So why am I telling you this? Because I got a download a bit over a week ago that has been incredibly helpful, and which has the potential to be truly transformative. It’s called “Desire to Succeed,” and I think that the skills it instills are so helpful to anyone in a marital crisis that I feel compelled to share it here. (Well, I can’t share the audio file, but I can share the link to it.)

Here’s why it’s so helpful. If you are trying to reconcile your marriage, you will likely be facing a long and rather protracted journey that places reconciliation as your goal. There will be many obstacles on that journey, and quite a number of forces that might try to derail your progress. Without a strong determination to succeed, this journey could very well be much, much harder.

Honestly, I’ve come to know many people on a similar journey as mine, and I do know from their experiences that the vagaries and vicissitudes of the trajectory toward reconciliation can be truly destabilizing. I have never really had that problem: I’ve been focused on getting to reconciliation virtually since day one, but I know that others have struggled, and some have struggled mightily. Some probably continue to struggle, and others, unfortunately, will struggle in the future.

Truth be told, I struggle myself, but with other issues, the largest of which being regaining my financial footing in the wake of the complications left behind by my wife’s decision to separate. For me, this has been the struggle in which I get derailed: I make progress, but then something happens that sets me back or shakes me up.

That’s why I picked up this download. I figured I might as well give it a shot.

It has been very helpful.

This download is a relatively brief session, clocking in at about 19 minutes. But, there’s an awful lot packed into that nineteen minutes. Aside from the hypnotic induction itself, there is an imaginative rehearsal of the goal having been realized, complete with a visualization of how life will have changed once that goal is completed. In addition, there is a second visualization of that same future time, only with the goal not having been realized due to inaction. This is given as a powerful motivator — the question is “what if I had really worked on this goal?” — and it serves to seed the subconscious with the complete unacceptability of simply maintaining the status quo. Finally, there are a couple of visualizations of oneself being pulled inexorably toward that goal, almost as if it would be easier to get off one’s duff and work on it, rather than to sit around and do nothing.

As I said earlier, I’ve only been working with this session for about 10 days or so, and I’ve already seen much benefit. I’ve really started to grab the bull by the horns and get a variety of things in order that is making managing and planning the finances much, much easier.

I am certain that just about anyone who is dealing with a marital crisis would stand to benefit from this download. Just click the link below to find out more.

Hypnosis: Good Answers to Some Good Questions

I’ve had a number of questions about hypnosis recently, especially considering what it is and what it isn’t. I’ll let the experts speak for me, as they know the territory much better than I. The following article comes from the good folks at

5 Hypnosis Myths Exploded

OVER the years, hypnosis has picked up all sorts of weird associations from stage hypnotists, the media and superstition. This is a great shame, because in reality, hypnosis is your single most effective tool for change. Hypnosis is your birthright, and you should know how to use it so it doesn’t use you. Here we dispel the biggest hypnosis myths.

Hypnosis Myth 1) All hypnosis is the same

As with anything, hypnosis can be good, bad or indifferent. The most common is old-style authoritarian hypnosis of the type “You are getting sleepy, you are feeling confident”. Unsurprisingly, this sort of hypnosis doesn’t work well with many people. Good hypnosis uses subtle psychological principles and advanced communication patterns.

It’s like the difference between a football coach who thinks you’ll perform best if he yells at you, compared with the more elegant style of a great leader who knows that to get the best from his people, he needs to understand motivation, to cajole, encourage and reward.

Hypnosis offers hundreds of sessions using the best type of hypnosis.

Hypnosis Myth 2) Subliminals work

Subliminals are words that you can’t hear. Common sense says they shouldn’t work, and there’s no research proving that they do.

Hypnosis Myth 3) Some people can’t be hypnotized

The only reason you can’t be hypnotized is if you are incapable of paying attention due to extremely low IQ or brain damage. That’s not to say that every hypnotist can hypnotize you however. The more flexible the hypnotist, the more effective she will be with the largest number of people.

Hypnosis Myth 4) Hypnosis is something weird that other people do to you

If you couldn’t go into hypnosis, you wouldn’t be able to sleep, to learn, or get nervous through ‘negative self hypnosis’. (You know when you imagine things going wrong and it makes you feel anxious? Well that’s self hypnosis!)

Hypnosis is simply a deliberate utilization of the REM (Rapid Eye Movement) or dream state. We’re not giving people medication here – if it wasn’t a natural ability, hypnosis wouldn’t work!

Hypnosis Myth 5) You lose control in hypnosis

Crazy news stories, stage hypnotists and gossip have created the illusion that you lose control in hypnosis. In fact, when hypnotized, you are relaxed and focused – and able to choose to get up and walk away at any time. You choose to give your attention to the hypnotist, and you can withdraw it at any time.

If you have been scared of hypnosis in the past, this article has hopefully convinced you to at least give it a try. But remember, ensure what you’re getting is the real thing. Visit
