Tips for Starting a New Life
When we speak of the benefits of practicing Dhamma, we can divide them into two categories first, a happy life free of problems, and second, the ability to use that life in the most successful and productive way according to our needs. Put another way, the two kinds of benefits are happiness and the appropriate use of that happiness for our needs. Together they can be called New Life. We will get New Life from practicing Dhamma.
Children may, of course, simply be themselves, particularly if they are children who are important in your daily life. But they can also symbolize anything new or young in our lives. For example, a child of five may symbolize a business venture or marriage or anything else that is about five years old. If an unknown five-year-old appears in a dream, ask yourself what began in your life about five years ago. Such symbols show entering a new area or phase of life, a transition. Ask yourself in what way you have entered new territory in your life, whether internally or psychologically or externally.
Imagine for a moment that your life's a mess and you're struggling to get it together so you take up the practice of meditation. You figure meditation will teach you the concentration and self-discipline you need to succeed. Or maybe you have a difficult time in relationships, and you want to calm your mind and even out the emotional rollercoaster so you're not constantly in conflict with others.
Now, for the time that remains, we'll discuss a second meaning of New Life. We must be able to skillfully use this new way of existing that comes with freedom from defilements to meet our needs. The first aspect of applying the New Life is making the mind happy at any time. For example, through successfully practicing mindfulness with breathing (anapanasati) it is possible to have genuine happiness at any time, in any place. Because of the proper development of mindfulness with breathing, The second aspect of using the New Life is that fully practiced Dhamma can help the sense organs eyes, ears, nose, tongue, body, and mind to perform most efficiently, as if they were divine. Divine Eye and Divine Ear are believed to be results of highly perfected mental concentration (samadhi). They're commonly viewed to be magical, and the foolish may meditate solely to gain these powers. By this we mean only that they have more ability and effectiveness than is ordinary. The eyes are more effective...

What you don't realize, Sid, is that most of your life is unconsciously determined. When Erickson said this to me, I reacted as many of my patients do when I say the same thing. I felt that he meant my life was predetermined, and that the most I could hope for was to become aware of the unconscious pattern ings that were firmly set. However, I realized later that the unconscious is not necessarily unchangeable. All of the experiences that we have today affect our unconscious mind as well as our conscious mind. If I read something that inspires me, my unconscious mind has been changed. If I have a meeting with an important person that is, a person who is important to me my unconscious is changed. In fact, the positive value of any psychotherapy is obviously based on the ability of a person to change, largely as the result of an encounter with another person or persons.
Your mind can do some very remarkable things. It can calculate answers to problems at speeds only exceeded by the guy in the car behind you hitting his horn when the light turns green for you. (The brain cranks out rapid- fire answers to questions like these Should you hit the brakes Should you pick up the stranded motorist Should you donate to the person collecting at the front door Do you buy Dove or Ivory ) The unconscious mind decides all of the answers to these questions so you don't have to think about it at the conscious level. If you had to consciously decide what to do in every single situation in life you would be completely overwhelmed and never get anything done. The wonderful thing about the unconscious mind is that once it understands something it will take care of it for you without asking for further advice from the conscious mind. Your unconscious mind automatically brakes when necessary and drives by the motorist as you call 911 on your cell phone. The unconscious...
Most of the experiences we have, our character, our habits, our choices can all be improved or changed with self hypnosis. Your character is partially determined by genetics. There are genes that predispose some people to being a criminal or getting divorced. However, we can take control of these aspects of our life with hypnosis. We can also take charge of our health with self hypnosis even though many of the diseases and disorders people experience are influenced by our genetic makeup. Our genes definitely bring us the gift of life and they bring us many of the challenges that we must overcome as well Self hypnosis has been shown to improve the longevity of some people with breast cancer. Self hypnosis can improve health in people with both chronic and psychosomatic illnesses. That said, be certain it is clear that just because hypnosis can help improve the health of the chronically ill individual, it doesn't follow that psychosomatic or chronic illnesses aren't real. Psychosomatic...
Self hypnosis is not a synonym for relaxation although relaxation is one benefit of self hypnosis. Self hypnosis is relatively easy to learn. Once you know how to use self hypnosis, you can literally change your life for the price of a few books and audio tapes in contrast to thousands of hours of therapy and counseling. There is a time for therapy and counseling but the one drawback to therapy is that you can't take your therapist with you everywhere you go. You can take the power of your mind with you everywhere and always. Self hypnosis is something you can do on your own time. You don't have to have an appointment. You can do self hypnosis in the car or in the office While someone else is smoking a cigarette on a break at work, you can be quietly programming your life for success, happiness and fulfillment.
Although having a regular rising and sleeping time may take some discipline , as you read and reflect on this concept, you may feel compelled to add this simple strategy into your lifestyle, the benefits of sleeping less, getting better sleep, and having more energy far outweigh the few extra hours you could spend in bed wasting your life away in that cozy cocoon of slumber.
Here is another way to think about this whole thing. I like to use the example of The Seething Caldron of Emotions. Take a look at the graphic below. I will use it to explain how your past, present and future can all cause stress in your life. If you don't take into account these three different sources of stress, any attempt at taking back control of how you feel will be inadequate in the long run. The caldron and that which may be seething inside of it represents your emotional state at any given moment. In this graphic example, you can see that underneath the caldron is a small flame, and that the flame is fed by three different fuel sources the past, present, and the future. Right now, how relaxed, calm or even anxious you feel depends on these three factors. These three factors, in time, come into play in every situation in your life they affect you every minute of your The 7th Path System of self-hypnosis uses this same principle of resonance to dissolve this old programming....
Thoughts and emotions by themselves are just momentary and possess no life of their own By clinging to them you prolong
So, you see, meditation need not be separate from life and its daily ups and downs. If you are to experience peace in this everyday world, you need to watch, understand and deal with your anger, desire and ignorance as they occur. Only when you cease to be involved with your emotions can the peaceful nature of your mind emerge. This peace-nature enables you to live every moment of your life completely. With this newfound understanding and awareness, you can live as a complete individual with greater sensitivity. You will come to view life with new and fresh perceptions. Strangely enough, what you saw as problems before are problems no more.
Everything in this volume has been aimed at helping you master new ways of doing something about what bugs you in your life. Let me reinforce something I've been saying all along Thinking about it is not nor has ever been enough. To change your life you must change what you actually do. You must act, you must do something about it. Nobody else can do what must be done. Only you can. To most easily and effectually change and successfully manage your life, use your self-interactions to shape and guide what is only natural for you. By changing your realities, as I've discussed, you can steer yourself indirectly and without great effort or need to pay attention to every little detail. The key to all of this is using your imagination strategically.
How does rebirth occur after our death Normally death refers to the moment when one's breathing and mental activities have stopped, and the body temperature drops. On the other hand, birth refers to the time when the baby is born. However, according to the teachings of the Buddha, our past karma is the main cause of the new life which comes about when the father's sperm cell combines with an egg from the mother. This is referred to as conception the initiation of the birth process. Thus, those who carry out abortions are in fact committing the evil deed of killing. Why are we reborn after death It is not inevitable that everyone will be reborn. Some may be reborn and others may not. Rebirth is caused by one's karma. With good karma we will produce good fruit. With evil karma we will suffer evil results. conditions provided by defilements (i.e. love and attachments), the seeds of our sufferings will not sprout. If we crave for comfort, luxury and wealth, and cling to our life, we will...
Just at peace, relaxed, calm and so comfortable. Lots of time. So much time, just more and more time, so good. You're breathing now easily and gently. You can feel yourself relaxing more and more. Your mind becomes calm, like a lake without a ripple. So calm and more and more at ease. It feels as if all the cares are just rolling away.

True ongoing compassion develops slowly. It takes decades of practice before one responds wisely, selflessly. To Kobori-roshi, the process was like the ripening of a persimmon. It too is sharp and astringent at first, but warmed by the autumn sun it begins to sweeten. Even its coloring gradually mellows. When still high on a branch, hard and green, it can benefit no one. But once it falls to the ground and disintegrates, other lives can partake of it, while its seeds go on to take new life. 5

It's become part of your daily routine, like taking your morning shower or brushing your teeth.This is a sure sign of your growing understanding that meditation is not some big mystical-shmystical deal. It's more like a walk in the park than a visit to Swami Watchamacallit's Kingdom of Bliss. medication not as something you have to do, but something you want and need to do.You know its changing your life for the better.
As you relax, drifting and floating peacefully and completely, see and feel yourself becoming more confident, choosing to be and feel attractive, desirable, and irresistible. You find yourself connecting with everyone you meet easily and effortlessly. Because you are self-confident, self-assured, and secure, you are irresistible. Now, imagine the perfect mate. See the qualities you admire reflected in your perfect mate hair, eyes, body, laugh, voice, outlook, philosophy, and interests.

Because really that is what it is all about, you being able to lead your life free from encumbrances and from having to think about things too much.
Imagine what it would have been like for you if from the time you were born you knew that no matter what happened in your life, you were going to live through it. Wouldn't it have been nice if you knew throughout your life, in every situation that you have ever faced, you had proof that you were going to make it up to this day Would that have made you feel more safe and secure throughout your life Would it have affected your confidence level Well, that is exactly what you can to do for this child. I will usually say something like this, speaking to the child I am about to let you in on a secret, and because of it you are going to have a bit of an advantage over every child that you know. Here it is. You get to grow up. Here is grown-up with you. She is absolute proof that no matter what happens in your life, you will get through it. How does that make you feel There is always a positive response.
Our moral conduct reflects the true extent of our love, concern, and care for ourselves and others. Review Lesson One and display the card listing the five precepts where you can see it every day. Resolve to work with the precepts in every area of your life.
But by honoring this material with your attention and mindfulness, you vastly increase the odds of finding a more satisfying way to deal with this person, and even more important, with the issues this person represents in your life. Write Your Life Chapters Life chapters is an approach we have adapted from Ira Progoff. It is a journaling exercise that can be useful at any time, but perhaps especially during times of difficulty or stress. To engage in this process, come to quietness. Listen to your life. See it in its sweep, from its earliest beginnings to the point where you are today. Find the felt sense of your life as a whole. Then, just as if you were about to write your autobiography, let the times of your life organize themselves into life chapters, perhaps eight or twelve of them. Do not think about it too much or agonize over it. Simply let the chapters emerge. Then write out the chapter headings, with a one- or two-sentence summary of the...
E And you didn't realize it at the time, but you were forming mental images that would stay with you for the rest of your life. Now you don't really need to listen to me because your unconscious mind will hear me. You can let your conscious mind wander in any direction it wants to. R Why do you repeat that phrase about forming images that would stay with you for the rest of your life here You said it earlier in a previous section (Words Extending Unconscious Activity in Time).
When you fill up your life with trivial pursuits and habits that squander time, it's no wonder you don't have enough for the things that really matter to you. Take stock of what you do with your day, and consider letting go of a few activities that don't feed your deeper intention to slow down and connect with yourself. t Remember that your life belongs to you. Even though you may have a family to take care of or a job that requires your attention, keep in mind that you have the right to apportion your time as you choose. You're not cheating the other people in your life if you take a half hour for yourself each day to meditate.
I hope what I am going to say next is old news to most readers. Stale or not. the news is this Being connected to other people can literally save your life. Our connections to other people seem to be a major source of resilience for us. 9. Imagine having all the friends you have ever had in your life gathered about you once again, including those who never knew how you felt about them, and imagine thanking them, each and every one, for being your friend and telling them how much you have cared about them. 10. Do step 5 in CSH for Exercises. Why not share some of your experiences regarding friends and friendship and what they have meant for you in your life Maybe try to formulate a joint definition of what it means to be a friend, and perhaps talk about ways of finding, making, and keeping friends that have worked for you.
Take your life in a new direction and get what you want Discover what is really important to you and program yourself to have it or be it. Program yourself for success in life. Program yourself for health. Learn about and program yourself for success in your life's calling. Good, positive things have probably already started to happen in your life by the time you get to this Recognition. We carry within ourselves all the essential positive programs that we need to be successful. But somewhere along the way, when we were young, we picked up negative suggestions from parents, siblings, teachers and other authority figures in our lives. These negative, erroneous and even unhealthy suggestions inhibit our ability to respond to our innate or generic programming. This leaves us feeling frustrated, afraid and depressed. Using the first four Recognitions removes the old erroneous programming and allows our good, positive, and natural programming for success to work for us.
In order to reduce the total amount of time you spend sleeping you MUST increase the quality of your sleep first
Does this mean you have to change your WHOLE life around drastically to simply cut down on an hour or two of sleep No. In fact, just creating some small changes in your life style will have a difference on your sleep. The two most important aspects of your life-style that affect your sleep are Your first step is to design a plan to incorporate these lifestyle changes into your life, and increase the quality of your sleep. To help you do this, I've included my personal Sleep Evaluation Worksheet in this book. As you fill the worksheet out, you will gain a better overall understanding on the obvious areas you need to improve on.

Imagine that the day has come that you no longer smoke. You are walking across campus to this building. The air is fresh the sun is shining and it's a beautiful day. You woke up this morning feeling good about yourself and your world. You like the way you're handling your life. For one thing, the feeling of being a slave to a cigarette no longer haunts you. You are in control, not the cigarette. You have more energy your throat is clear and you know your lungs are clearing. You feel great, and the more you think about how good you feel, the more energetic your step becomes. Continue walking across campus now while I am silent for a minute.
When you're having difficulty with a loved one or friend, look beyond your conflict and the role this person plays in your life, and spend some time reflecting on the fact that this person is a human being just like you. She has the same desire for happiness and well-being, the same fear of suffering, the same need for love. Notice how this meditation changes your feelings for her and affects your difficulties.
Our third and final strategy is the most sophisticated and will, therefore, be explained in greater detail. This method, called remembering the future, is especially important to master because it represents your basic strategy for self-management training. With this technique you can edit and revise, so to speak, your sense of what script you will be acting out in your life. Sometimes your interest is simply a new attitude and way of living. Often it is to learn how to remain calm, relaxed, and in control over your life. Something surreal might be appropriate even something as indirect as picturing yourself as an eagle lazily soaring among the fluffy white clouds, high up in the cool mountain air. More practical-minded persons might prefer visualizing themselves in what would have previously been a difficult situation, the kind that always used to get to them but now remembering how self-hypnosis

If you just want to use meditation to improve your life, you don't have to bother reading this section (although I'd like to suggest that you can improve your life immeasurably by opening your heart to compassion). But if you want to extend the benefits of your meditation to others and become a more compassionate human being in the process then I couldn't recommend a more helpful set of practices. Begin by cultivating compassion. Then, if you want, you can experiment with using it to transform the suffering of others in your own heart. Though these practices may be simple, they're extremely effective for dissolving the clouds that hide the heart.
There is a definite and crucial link between the social systems in which you are involved and the quality of your life. I mean this both in the sense of the type of person you become and your degree of satisfaction, well-being, and effective performance in all areas of your life.
Imagine as much chaos and change in your life as you can imagine tolerating. Build a sense of having as much as you can stand.

1 Improving your life 1 Understanding and accepting yourself 1 Realizing your true nature 1 Awakening others 1 Expressing your innate perfection Knowing which of these best describes you can help you determine both how and how much you meditate. (Needless to say, most people fall into the first three categories the other two are generally reserved for seasoned meditators.) Mindfulness meditation (presented on the CD and explained in detail in Chapter 6) makes a great foundational practice, no matter what your motivation, and it can be extended to every moment of your life (see Chapter 15). But the rest is up to you.
Don't, however, forget to organize your future memory along the theme of what you want to be. do, or have happen in your life. You may include things above and beyond you actual suggestion. Just keep it appropriate and you'll do fine Make the whole thing tell you that you have really brought off what you are seeking to bring about for yourself. It is always wise to incorporate general symbolism and other content relating generally to the idea of effective self-management Have your future memories show you that you are truly free, unself-consciously in control over yourself and your life, and that being calm and relaxed is your natural state. The idea that your hands are warm, steady, and relaxed suggests, for example, that you are not tense or nervous.

Inform the child that she is loveable and capable and remove negative erroneous beliefs created by ISE
It is time to start the deprogramming. For the child, the ISE has not yet occurred. I ask the client, If you had a little girl in your life just like her, a little sister, daughter or niece, could you love her (If there is a great distance between their age, such as the client being 65 years old or older, instead of saying a daughter, I might want to say granddaughter.)

Life experiences are connected to prior life experiences with a similar emotional tone. When we suffer grief or loss, these experiences are understood in the light of previous losses, and amplified by them. When something wonderful happens, these experiences are also enhanced or muffled by what has gone on before. You can learn about how your life story filters current experience through the lens of the past by building a memory bridge between significant present events and past events that evoke a strong response. To do this, first notice an event that either is significant in itself or one that evoked a stronger response than you would have expected. Be with these feelings and focus on the felt sense. Then let memories emerge that are connected to the present experience. Note the passive quality in the word let. Rather than trying to figure things out, you want to let connections emerge. The connection between memories may not always be apparent logically, but they are connected...
Think of all the people you've known in your life who brought you nothing but noise shouting, distracting, drama all to get your attention and feed their own emptiness inside. If you hearken to them, you wind up losing one precious thing after another, and they can never repay you for your loss. Rumi counsels you to accept that there will always be people trying to distract you it's the way of things from time immemorial. When you realize the noise cannot be stopped, then you can work on tuning it out so you can get on with the business of your life. The influence of busybodies and users holds us back, and it's only when we understand this that we can begin to learn how to work around them.
Your basic self-hypnosis routine is itself an effective way for attaining better self-management, for relieving stress and tension, or for programming yourself for long-term success. These benefits will gradually develop as you continue your daily practice of the exercise. Some will occur sooner than others the more earnestly you practice, the more likely a quicker result. However, you'll also need some tools for meeting challenges and solving specific problems as they crop up in your life.
I own my body respect and protection. This point emphasizes the fact that for you to do what you wish to do with your life, you need to treat your body in such a way that it can enable you to do it. You cannot put sugar in the gas tank of your car and expect it to drive you into the mountains. Likewise, putting poison in your body hampers its ability to enable you to do what you wish to do, so I owe my body respect and protection.
Your unconscious mind is powerful and has a sacred trust to protect you. In your dreams, you can reframe any thought that you need to, to let you know that you survived all your past experiences, and all the powers that are behind you that have gotten you through this, continue to serve you as they do now in your waking state and even when you dream. Just as you are now able to allow your conscious mind to drift off into some pleasant place, your unconscious can listen to me and deal with other things at the same time and do what it needs to get this experience behind you, placing these old thoughts in the inactive file, and permitting you to go on with the rest of your life.

Hedirection means to then take creative control over the cycles of which your life's performances are made, and by dealing with them one after another, redirect the larger trend so as to bring about preferred outcomes. By dealing aptly with the concrete cycles before you, you gain control over the entire helical progression. That certainly made sense to me. Deal with the here and now. because that is all you can do anything about, anyway.
Finally, seeing as you'll learn how to be creating that kind of profound reality anyway, we're going to discuss a few possibilities, a few ideas for what kind of frame, what kind of realities you can step into, adopt for yourself, in order to make your life richer, more successful
W Once the Chinese Emperor Mu Chung of the Tang dynasty, impressed by the level of cultivation of National Master Wu Yeh invited him to come for an audience. To just about any subject, this would have been an overwhelming honor. However, the master kept refusing because he did not want to be disturbed by worldly matters. So the emperor told his envoy, If you cannot persuade Master Wu Yeh to come, you will have to forfeit your life. The envoy sought out the master and tearfully asked for his cooperation. The monk, unable to refuse the request at this point, said, All right, I will go. So he gathered the whole assembly and asked his followers, Who would like to join me for an audience with the emperor When a disciple raised his hand, the master asked, How many miles can you travel in one day The disciple answered, Fifty. The monk said, That's not good enough. A second disciple was asked the same question and said, Sixty-five, to which the monk replied again, That's not good enough. A...
So we need to begin to inquire, why does this harm happen Why do we hurt people Have you ever hurt anyone in your life in some fashion or other Perhaps there's no one in the room who could not think of some instance. Why do we do it Have you ever looked If we want to become conscious and learn the meaning of ahimsa or harmlessness, let's see if we can figure out why we harm. For some people, if you look or you inquire very deeply, you see that the moment you would hurt someone else through your actions, or your words, you're in pain. Go forth, O monks, for the gain of the many, for the welfare of many and compassion for the world, for the good, the gain, the welfare of all beings. Proclaim, O monks, the glorious Dharma and treat your life of holiness, perfect and pure. That's the negative side. The positive side is that instead of that, we can find ways to cultivate the seeds of greater awareness or sensitivity. Look in your life at what it isthatmakesyoumore conscious. Rather than...
Paying attention to your mind will dramatically increase your sense of peacefulness and understanding of your life. Having others as a great friend is wonderful, but your mind should first and foremost be the greatest of friends. I hope you folks will get to know each other better and establish a life-long friendship.
We want to foster a mindfulness-based morality. The best course is to let your own mindfulness be your guide. Feel the effects of what you consume. If you know that something has a negative effect, but you still cannot give it up, be gentle and patient with yourself. Practice mindful-ness of the consequences of harmful consumption until you find a readiness to change. (Our book Mindful Recovery offers help for those recovering from addiction.) You may decide that some of the traditional prohibitions of spiritual teachings make sense for you. Or you may decide that they do not. But let this grow out of your own insight, with knowledge of yourself and your life context. Otherwise your spiritual practice can become heavy and joyless.
That's just it The best thing a person can do in this life is to find a way for his or her soul to escape it intact and illuminated. There isn't much time to unlock the spirit, so it's time to stop filling in our only means of escape and instead get busy removing the baubles and trinkets from our lives. Now we will take a look at Rumi's advice on how to combat the pull of materialism. As you read these passages, think deeply on the meaning and imagine how you can make this wisdom a part of your life. Though progress may be slow and imperceptible at times, still the steady rise of awareness will not diminish within the one who has already seen a glimmer of the light within his or her soul.
As with all new skills practice makes perfect, and you will learn a great deal about trance from your experiments with friends. That's what got me started, and in the early days I knew less about trance than you have just learned from this short introduction. Sometimes my inductions worked, sometimes they didn't, as your skills develop you will find that your successes increase, so will your fascination with everything hypnotic Learning hypnosis is the single most valuable tool that I ever learned and I believe that if you develop your skills as a practicing hypnotist rather than settling for a curiosity satisfied then trance can change your life too.
Think about two relationships in which you are currently involved or in which you have been involved a relationship with which you feel felt satisfied, and a relationship with which you feel felt very dissatisfied, very unhappy. These can be any types of relationships in any aspect of your life family, friendship, work, love, school. 2. When it is time to scan your present, focus on whichever relationship in your life currently presents the most problems for you (i.e is least satisfactory, most painful, most frustrating or disheartening) and symbolize the pain and imbalance of this relationship in your visualization. 3. Similarly, focus your preferred future visualization on having resolved this problem. Visualize a situation implying or showing you that you have already handled it and moved on to something else in your life it is no longer a problem for you. Hut do not focus on actually resolving it or how you might do so.
The principle of utilization, most closely connected with Erickson's indirect, permissive style, is likewise effective with an authoritarian approach. Utilization can turn what might have been a distraction into a support for the trance induction. It is optimal to notice possible distractions before the client does. You might then say, for example, In a moment, you may hear a sound coming from outside the room. And you will know that someone is rushing to go somewhere. Perhaps some time in your life, you have rushed to go places. As you notice someone outside rushing to go somewhere, perhaps you will want to go more deeply inside. And take all the time you need, to go even deeper. Utilizing whatever happens outside will help you achieve a smooth, seamless induction. Utilization is hypnosis in all its elegance.

As buddhists and as human beings, we are full of compassion for suffering humanity but compassion by itself does not go far enough to be of help. Compassion does not help to restrain a person who has chosen to go against the law of the country. The laws of the country must be respected and upheld to the very letter. If law stipulates that for committing a serious crime you must pay for it by having your life taken away from you, then the process of law must take its course. Buddhism cannot interfere with the normal enforcement of the law. The only line of action, members of our religion can take is to ask for compassion and plead for clemency to be extended to an accused
In addition to feeling full of energy, you will find that you will be relaxed and in control all day long. Issues at work or in other areas of your life that bothered you will cease to bother you tomorrow. In place of the stress that had become a part of your life, you will
The opposite side of that frame is the one where you're at cause, where you choose that to take responsibility for things that happen to you in your life. So start taking control of your life and choose to take a responsibility to things that happen to you. And as a result, you'll start seeing a lot more of the results that you want to see in life.
You may even do what others have been unable to do. Always keep a strong desire to succeed in your mind. Be in love with your aim and work, and make them, as far as possible, square with the rule of the greatest good to the greatest number and your life cannot be a failure. The successful business attitude must be cultivated to make the most out of your life, the attitude of expecting great things from both yourself and others. It alone will often cause men to make good to measure up to the best that is in them.
If you don't believe me, give this meditation a try. As soon as you get the knack, practice it regularly for several weeks, and notice what happens. Whether or not the people in your life suffer less (and they may), I can guarantee that you'll eventually end up feeling more peaceful and loving yourself. (For detailed audio instructions, check out Track 8 on your CD.)
You have feet, so why do you act as if you were lame You have hands, so why do you hide your fingers When a master puts a shovel into the hands of his servant, he knows exactly what he has to do without a word being spoken. The hand and the shovel are both signs of God, and our power to think is our clear directive. When you pay attention to His signs then you'll devote your life to following what you've been directed to do. The exercise of free will is the method for thanking God for all His gifts. You're expectation of being taken care of is the denial of His gifts. If you want to trust in God, then trust Him through your work. Plant a seed and then rely upon the Great One.
When doing the second session where I am going to use Affect Bridge, I will go through the same procedure, leaving out the eye lock test (convincers are usually relegated to the first session). Instead I will move to, Now even though you weren't thinking about it a moment ago, merely because I suggest it, your attention goes to the feeling associated with your problem. There is a feeling inside of you that you experience whenever this issue comes up in your life and now your attention is going to it. It is an uncomfortable feeling. You have now become aware of it either consciously or subconsciously. I know because your rate of breathing has changed. (Or mention any other physiological sign that indicates that they have connected to the feeling, such as muscle stiffening, eyes tearing, etc.)
When doing age regression work, you have to think like a detective, constantly putting things together and seeing if they add up. When you first meet with your client, you need to find out the known history of the problem. For example, when deeding with weight control I will have my client draw out a chart depicting her weight over the years. At a glance I can get a quick idea of when weight became an issue in her life. If I see that the weight started to come on when she was 13 years old, I would ask her during the intake process, what was going on in your life here It might have been a move, or a divorce, or the addition of a new baby in the family. I will then file information away in the back of my mind and make a note of it in her file.
Master Yun Gu For the past twenty years, you have lived your life according to Mr. Kong's predictions and did not do a thing to change it. Instead, you became bound by your own fate. If you're not considered as a mundane mortal, then who is Tien-Chi, my son, I wonder how your life will be In any case of destiny, we should always prepare for the worst therefore, even in times of prosperity, you must act as if you were not prosperous, and when things are going your way, you must be mindful of adversity. When
Ego-strengthening suggestions for improved self-esteem, body-image acceptance, hope, and coping skills for transition back into their families, homes, and communities were found to be quite effective in making the patient recovery period more positive.

You will not crave excessively for a habit negatively affecting your health. . . . Your mind can block the perception of discomfort, as when your finger felt insensitive to the pressure of the sharp nail file. . . . Your mind will function in such a manner that you will no longer crave for a habit that has negatively affected your life with every drag of cigarette smoke you have taken into your lungs. . . . You will block the craving for tobacco a habit that is causing your heart and your lungs to work much harder than necessary, forcing your lungs to labor beyond all necessity, stressing and straining these vital organs . . . like a car constantly driven in low gear . . . constantly laboring uphill . . . stressing and straining the motor. . . . But because of the great control of your unconscious mind, the craving for this vicious and lethal habit will grow steadily and markedly less until it rapidly reaches a permanent zero level. . . . You simply will not crave for cigarettes...
And yet, these days, most of us do not see that truth because the imagination he is talking about is conscious. And the Conscious Imagination perceives the superior and inferior worlds directly, and that perception is more real than what you are seeing now - it is MORE real. It is hard to understand that with the mind, but anybody who is actually perceived it knows it. When you learn to perceive through Conscious Imagination, nothing in your life will ever be the same.
After calming yourself with mindful breathing, write down a list of key emotional events in your life events that touched you for good or ill. Just give these events short titles, such as The time I won that award, or The day my father died. Now consider how these events affected you. If you recorded a death or the breakup of a relationship for example, did it leave you with a feeling that people always leave you Then you may have an abandonment schema. Did you list the time you brought home a report card with all A's and one B, and your father said, Why did you get the B You may have an unrelenting standards schema. At first, consider these as just guesses. To know if they are
As the night settles in and the sun is setting in the west, your ability to take greater control of your life and the discomfort will increase, day by day, as you learn to concentrate your mind and relax more and more. If there is a psychological and or physical reason for the pain you have been experiencing, this knowledge will come up through images, thoughts and dreams. With this information, you will be able to share it either with me or the necessary medical doctor.
So as you sit there, listening to me, you are learning to feel comfortable and relaxed more and more fully, so that as the days and the weeks and the months go by, you will find yourself being more relaxed as a person, more comfortable and more easy to get along with, so you can enjoy your life more and more fully. Now, it is time for you to come back.
Forgiveness is a very powerful thing and if you cannot forgive, you cannot be open to accept abundance, change, happiness in certain aspects of your life. You block the entry of lots of new joy entering your life. Remember I spoke about creating a vacuum in your life a couple of chapters back Well here was a prime example. As soon as I let go of the anger and upset caused by this incident, lots of love and opportunity came my way to fill that gap. Let go of what you no longer need in your hypnosis sessions, you don't want to end up on a daytime TV show holding on to all your pent up anger blaming everyone else for how your life is, do you
Holmes and his associates have developed the Schedule of Recent Experience, which allows you to quantify how many changes you have experienced in the past year and consider how these stressful events may increase your vulnerability to illness. The purpose of this scale is to increase your awareness of stressful events and their potential impact on your health so that you can take steps to reduce the stress level in your life.

And now that you have learned to respect your body by balanced eating and physical exercise, you will become even more and more aware, day after day, how important regular eating and physical exercise will remain for you for the rest of your life How practicing self-hypnosis daily, will help you to stabilize your weight and help you to feel relaxed, comfortable and pleased with yourself. By now, you may have noticed how all these new behaviors and efforts, have become a kind of habit and are happening automatically, and hence don't demand much effort anymore
Thus, as Rumi explains it, within our busy lives we must not forget where our true purpose lies. The never-ending race to get more stuff in our short lives leaves our spirit starving at the end of the day. All other pursuits pale in comparison to our real need that of nourishing our heart and soul. We are spiritual beings with a relationship to something greater than ourselves. Regardless of the faith, or lack thereof, all people are endowed with an inner depth that must be experienced and expanded upon in order to realize what being truly human is. To leave the key to the treasury lying in the dust before the door is to be ungrateful for the gifts waiting to be unleashed within. We must hurry, however, for there is little time to lose. Our life span is short and when we finally realize what we must do, the constant ticking of the clock must be our companion and reminder. This is what Rumi intoned
You can't avoid it. Stress is any change that you must adapt to, ranging from the negative extreme of actual physical danger to the exhilaration of falling in love or achieving some long-desired success. In between, day-to-day living confronts even the most well-managed life with a continuous stream of potentially stressful experiences. Not all stress is bad. In fact, stress is not only desirable but also essential to life. Whether the stress you experience is the result of major life changes or the cumulative effect of minor everyday hassles, it is how you respond to these experiences that determines the impact stress will have on your life. Walter B. Cannon, a physiologist, laid the groundwork for the modern meaning of stress at Harvard around the turn of the century. He was the first to describe the fight or flight response as a series of biochemical changes that prepare you to deal with threat or danger. Primitive man needed quick bursts of...
Rebirth may be defined as the re-embodiment of an immaterial part of a person after a short or a long interval after death, in a new body, whence it proceeds to lead a new life in the body more or less unconscious of its past existences, but containing within itself the essence of the results of its past lives, which experience goes to make up its new character or personality. Thus, infancy brings to earth not a blank scroll for the beginning of a new earthly record, but one inscribed with ancestral histories, some like the present scene, most of them unlike it, and stretching back into the remote past.
Now we are going to emphasise the fact that the active creation and utilisation of such loops in order to amplify
Because the resistance is reduced, the next suggestion will then be accepted a little more readily. It might be, But as a sensible person you will know that some people suffer from closed minds like tortoises This can also be accepted easily, which will in turn reduce the resistance. This can then be followed up with a more direct action to reduce the resistance still further, such as, But I am sure that you are not like them. You will certainly recognise the importance of having an open mind. Again, with the reduced resistance, this can be accepted, and the way is becoming open to stronger and more questionable statements, such as, Now, I have your best interests at heart, and when I say that this car is going to transform your life, I know that you will not be like one of those tortoises and dismiss it out of hand, but will really examine the advantages. And so on.
You know that you have been able to perform many functions throughout your life things like walking and talking and writing and feeding yourself. These became second nature to you many, many years ago. You already have the information. Then, three months ago when you had your stroke, you found that very suddenly you were unable to do those very things that you have done automatically for decades. Calmly stating the fact.
The monks went to the Buddha and asked him to cast some light on what had happened. The Buddha said, If you say nothing, some people will blame you if you say a lot, some people will blame you if you say just a little, some people will blame you.There's always blame in this world. That's the nature of our lives. You can probably remember, at some point in your life, having received both strong praise and strong blame for the identical action. It's inevitable. May you live all the days of your life.
And sometimes when there has been a particularly deep scar, with modern techniques and advancements, our healers of today have learned how to overcome that. For instance, we can take some collagen, and inject it, which is, of course, a little painful. But that little pain that is causejd by the doctor is well worth it, because we have discovered now how to inject new things into that space, so that new tissue grows to replace the old, gaping hole. And it fills in with new life, so that the scar no longer remains, and something new and wonderful has replaced it.
Now, take off the heavy back pack, and drop it onto the ground. Are you tired of carrying around in your life that heavy burden of those feelings, which you've been carrying for so long Pause Do you feel ready to get rid of those old, outdated feelings Pause Good. Then, in a moment, I'm going to ask you to open that pack, and inside you'll find some kind of objects or containers, that have been infused with all of those excessive feelings of (e.g., guilt, anger), that have been weighing you down. Open the pack, and see what kind of objects you find, that contain all that (e.g., anger). What are they Pause .
However there are biorhythms that do exist. Most women, for example, have a periodic menstrual cycle though it is by no means predictable from month to month. There are also daily rhythms that almost everyone experiences called Ultradian Rhythms. These cycles begin about every 90-120 minutes and they vary from person to person in both when they begin and how long they last. These periods of spacing out happen to just about everyone, every day, several times per day. Almost everyone experiences these cycles. Using these cycles can benefit your health, happiness and can completely change your life The Ultradian Rhythm phenomenon will be discussed in some detail midway through this article.
Let him then be careful to write nothing therein that is inharmonious or untrue. Nor can he avoid this writing, for this is a Magick Book. If you abandon even for an hour the one purpose of your life, you will find a number of meaningless scratches and scrawls on the white vellum and these cannot be erased. In such a case, when you come to conjure a demon by the power of the Book, he will mock you he will point to all this foolish writing, more like his own than yours. In vain will you continue with the subsequent spells you have broken by your own foolishness the chain which would have bound him.
Then contemplate each of the ten non-virtuous actions. Pick a few that you recognize are more common in your life. Maybe killing, lying and gossip as an example, and meditate on these in particular. Think back in your life to instances when these negative actions were committed, and try to understand what your motive was, why did you engage in these actions, what benefit did you expect Which one of the three poisonous minds was the driving force behind

His namesake, Zen master Shunryu Suzuki (1905-1971), once said that the true purpose of Zen ''is to see things as they are.''2 But even if insight-wisdom illuminates such ''seeing,'' how can it serve to enhance the basis of all religions Could it be by ''elevating'' religions to the same status as everything else in the universe that is, both matter-of-fact and sacred
