American Football 101
Are you looking for a way to increase the capabilities of your football team? Is your football team leaving something to be desired? Are you looking to skyrocket your team's effectiveness with the most effective drills and plays?
For many, visualization is difficult. Don't be discouraged if you have difficulty. If the first letter of your name is H and you are not able to visualize it, then mentally describe it to yourself .two vertical bars with a horizontal bar between them at mid-point .like a football goal post. Know in your intellect that the H is there. With practice, you will learn to visualize. As with any worthwhile skill, practice, practice, practice, and more practice makes perfect. This is as true for self-hypnosis as it is for playing a musical instrument. In hypnosis, you are learning to play the instrument of your mind. Whether you remain an amateur or advance to expert, or something in between is entirely up to you and how much devotion, time, and integrity you are
Sometimes people devote a lot of time and energy to doing helpful, loving things, but the effort is wasted because they are not the right things, or at least not the best ones. George might knock himself out fixing Mary's car, trying through many hours of difficult, dirty work to do something nice for her. But it may be that Mary would just as soon take the car to a mechanic. It may be that George would receive more appreciation for giving Mary fifteen minutes of deep listening about her work day than for many hours of hard labor on her car. Similarly, Mary might spend hours preparing a dinner for George that would put Martha Stewart to shame. But if George is basically a meat-and-potatoes guy, Mary's efforts are largely wasted. George might appreciate it far more if Mary watched a little football with him and honestly tried to understand the game and his passion for it.
Setting yourself goals are essential if you want to achieve anything in life however there is a right way and a wrong way to set out your goals. The first step you must take is to decide what you want. Sounds simple doesn't it, but you would be amazed how many people go through life without any real idea about where they are going and what they want from life. Most have the usual flight of fancy about disappearing off into the sunset on a fabulous luxury yacht leaving all their troubles behind them, or of winning the lottery or football pools. But these are just day dreams, they never seriously expect them to come true.
Now, I have tended to pride myself on the fact that I have devoted myself to sports of different kinds throughout my life. I run marathons as well as lots of other races, I have played a high standard of football and make a great armchair pundit and can find myself quite excitable viewing all mainstream sports, events and occasions - live or on TV
The first stage of the Heart opening is very conformist as it associates with the family, the city, the country or the world. My family or country right or wrong , it says. This is the stage of wanting to fit with the tribe, the group, of gangs, the Ku Klux Clan and football clubs. But as it begins to understand that if you partially love one thing, then you must hate everything else for example Hitler's Loving the Fatherland , allowed Germany to go to war with the rest of the world. This is a major pathology, which prevents the next stages of growth. Surveys suggest that 96 of all Americans are stuck at the level of the Football fan.
Another significant phenomenon is ideomotor activity. What is meant by ideomotor activity A person can be sitting in the back seat of a car, mentally braking the car with the pressure of his foot on the floor until he notices that his leg is getting tired. Then he takes his foot off the floor but, before he knows it, he may have his foot on the brake again. He may go to a football game, eager for his team to forge ahead. As he watches the game, he bends forward until he is touching his neighbor and has to apologize. A few minutes later, he may be leaning over and touching that person again. A number of hypnotic techniques are based upon ideomotor activity. Some of them will be illustrated in the text in the descriptions of hand levitation or related procedures.
From this perspective we probably are 'doing' hypnosis work when we engage our young patients in conversation in which they are absorbed, paying attention, listening, and responding as requested. Most children move in and out of spontaneous hypnotic-like states as they focus their concentration, for example on video games, favourite movies (e.g., the Lion King, Pocahontas), TV football, playing 'house', listening to a story, enjoying puppet play, or otherwise engaging in fantasy. Kuttner has noted (1988), that especially young children have blurred boundaries, and move frequently, naturally, and easily from fantasy to reality.
When my son was about three or four, he decided that his baseball and football became monsters at night when the lights were turned off. He saw them coming to life they looked evil and they were trying to get him. Now, rationally, that makes no sense at all. Our consensual f- reality knows that it's not real. My wife and I attempted to explain to him what was real and what was not. He listened very intently and when we finished, he said, But they're coming to get me. For whatever the reasons, his unconscious mind had created this inner reality, and it had 7 suddenly leaped out to become his outer reality. Logical, factual, linear,
People who are starting to practise Qigong o.ften ask if it is all right to participate in other sports such as swimming, football, tennis, weight training and so on. There is no reason why you should not continue to enjoy these activities, but you will of course be using up the Qi that you have stored. This is because fitness training in the West is based on the principle of 'No pain, no gain'. People push their bodies until they are hot, sweaty and exhausted, after which they need to eat and sleep in order to recharge their energy. Of course, if you practise Qigong you will have more energy than you previously had to expend on the tennis court or football pitch. It is up to each individual to decide what they want out of their Qigong and sporting activities, and to find the right balance for themselves.
Future fear give way to the frightening awareness that a painful injury or condition may have a permanent effect. Despair and despondency develop as the suffering remains partially unrelieved, and activities become restricted. The seductiveness of seeking, demanding, and receiving help from significant others, including doctors and family, the mildly pleasant and or euphoric effects of medication, or the sedation and induced sleep which avoids pain, can produce a reinforcement contingency for which the pain is a sufficient, and eventually a necessary precursor. Feelings of helplessness lead to depression, guilt, and internalized anger concerning perceived loss of bodily parts or functions, and diminished self-control. Gradually, a time-protracted pattern is established involving helplessness and depression which reinforces pain behavior (Fordyce, 1976 Sternbach, 1968). Pain is sometimes positively reinforced by its pleasant consequences, and sometimes negative consequences are avoided...
G I would recommend this to any person, even they are not looking at the spiritual side of. life, but more into the physical activities, If they play football,basketball or any other kind of sport, when they practise meditation, anything they do in life will be improved, Even sleeping will be better. Getting to opec their channels will be one of the best things in their lives. I have always been healthy, yet I still feel so much better from meditation. The
Myself, I always had respect for Kung Fu and thought perhaps that one day when the time was right I would begin training. The years had taken a toll on my young body, though. I have been a landscaper for 10 years and previous to that I had played American football for six years and generally worked my body very hard with basketball and hiking and other athletic endeavours. I was also struggling with two health problems. The first was a badly hyper-extended knee.
I regressed the man back to the time when he first experienced the pain. He was 16 years old and was preparing to try out for the high school football team. The pain was so severe that he was unable to try out and never tried again. His days as an athlete were finished. Continued investigation under hypnotic regression revealed this. He had been the football star in a small mid-western school. He was a local hero. Everyone knew him. Girls vied for his attention. Then his father's employment caused the family to move to Chicago. He was now enrolled in a huge high school that was full of top quality athletes. Competition was fierce. His high school class alone had more students than the entire 12 grades of his previous school. Being a football hero in the small school carried no weight in this new shool. When tryout time came, he was fearful of failure against the formidable competition. His fear was compounded because he had done considerable bragging about his previous football...
Opportunities to tailor the approach to handle specific problems occur within each of these five steps. Due to its flexibility, this approach to ego-enhancement may be used to help patients with a wide variety of presenting problems. Approximately 85 of my patients find that the ego-enhancement approach affords considerable relief. This is true whether they want to learn how to relax, overcome anxiety, sell more insurance, kick a football farther, or let go of habits such as smoking, overeating, and alcohol abuse. As it is basically gentle and nonintrusive in nature, ego-enhancement is a technique unlikely to cause harm and would seem capable of effective use with most patients finding difficulty coping with their life situations. However, as I have not employed the approach with patients suffering with severe character disorders, I am unable to comment on whether it would be similarly helpful and noninjurious in such a context.
As we evolve, we graduate from the mother to the family, to the city municipality, to the Country with its King or Queen, and then to the World. The World or the Cosmos is the highest form of Evolution. The Selfish State which wants to become stronger than all the rest has a powerful motive to prevent the evolution of its citizens for the benefit of the world. My Country right or wrong, it says. Because any organisation cannot function amidst dissent. The anti-evolutionary propaganda has been very successful. 96 of all the people in America still are at the evolutionary level of the football supporter.
