Quotes of the Week
“That’s really the magic, to quit analyzing what was already happening and put your mind in a place where you’re imagining the solution instead of debating what already happened” - from hypnotist Scott McFall in an interview on www.kxmc.com .
“With respect to change, it’s (hypnosis) sort of like replacing a broken record and getting a new one that works” – from Will Lam about his experience with hypnotist Luke Chao in the article Success through hypnosis on www.theeyeopener.com.
“If you can conceive it in your mind and believe it in your heart you will achieve it in your life.

Photojournalist Alison Wright is an amazing woman and not just because she survived an accident that would have ended in death for most of us. It is how she survived and got her life back together that is so amazing. She was in Laos and was involved in a terrible bus accident. As the location was far removed from even the most basic medical facilities, it became a matter of mind over body for Allison to survive. You see, she was experienced in the art of meditation. She used that to keep her calm through the process and to keep herself from going into shock. When she finally did make it back to western medicine areas, she rejected doctors who told her she would no longer be able to be a photojournalist. Instead she put together a team of people who believed in her full recovery including not just traditional doctors, but also alternative healers such as hypnotist, acupuncturist and so on. This is one smart lady and we all can take a note from her pages (I will let you come up with what that is). You can read her story at petergreenberg.com.
The Bad as in Real Cool!
This is kind of fun, especially if you are an arts and crafts sort. Several weeks ago, I did an affirmation process developed by David Mason and blogged about it on The Unwinding Path. Maybe you quietly did it with me (I can hope). Anyway, one of the results of that process is that you end up with several strips of paper floating around your house. The question is what to do with those paper affirmation. Janice Taylor on her blog at Lady of Weight Loss has provided a creative solution. It involves an Altoid tin to make an affirmation holder. Very clever!
Just a reminder that the movie The Great Buck Howard opens on Friday. We talked about this a few weeks ago as well. It is about a Kreskin-like entertainer, portrayed by John Malkovich, who begins a come back. I am still looking for anyone who lives in an area where it will be released to write about it (hypnotist or not). The New York Time’s Stephen Holden reviewed it. You can read his words here.
