Hypnosis Can Reduce Kratom Cravings
People use Kratom for relaxation, pain relief, anxiety, and several other reasons. In fact, in higher dosages, it is often used as a substitute for opioid drugs like morphine and heroin because it carries the same effect on the brain receptors. Unfortunately, like opioids, Kratom can also contain addictive properties, which you should be wary about. Intolerance, dependency and cravings are some side effects that can come with using Kratom and can later lead to psychological and physical withdrawal when you eventually choose to stop using it. Though because of its easy availability, people may opt to take it to [...]
What “I don’t believe in hypnosis” REALLY means.
Since April 1999 I've been helping people make improvements to their lives with hypnosis. The first time I heard someone say "I don't believe in hypnosis" I was stumped. I didn't know how to respond.

Saying "I don't believe in hypnosis" isn't exacting and it's likely they mean one of three things. What Do They REALLY mean? Meaning #1 - Hypnosis is Fake. The most obvious way to understand those words is they [...]

How to encourage a friend to get help.
Let's suppose there is someone in your life you care about who seriously NEEDS help. They are engaging in a behavior you want them to stop. How do you talk to them so they are more likely to ask for help? Don't Do This... Nagging, lecturing, critisizing. It may feel good. It may feel like the only thing you can do for the people you care about. After all, you are watching them engage in behaviors that at best, are wasteful, and at worse, self-destructive. The problem nagging, lecturing and critsizing is that it creates an opposition for them to [...]
Change a behavior? Change how you see yourself.
As much as people use hypnosis to change behaviors like quitting smoking, fear of flying and the like, the truth is they want to be someone different. People want to be someone better than they are now. Our identities are not fixed. In fact, your self-image is flexible and fluid. Consider how teenagers are noted for experimenting with their sense of identity. It is a central feature of becoming an adult. But formulating a new sense of self is not limited to the young. Anyone can reshape and form a newer and better personal identity. Our self-perception is a cognitive [...]

THE HYPNOTIC POWER OF GRATITUDE
I was recently working with a client for drug addiction. Anyone who recognizes they’re stuck in a problem starts working to get out of it. As you might guess, he spent much of his time and mental energy working to avoid using drugs and alcohol. This avoidance became a huge preoccupation. Of course doing this can work but such vigilance can make an exhausting amount of stress. A turning point happened in our work when he realized that it is easier and more enjoyable to focus on the things that he appreciates in life as opposed to trying to avoid [...]
COMMON SENSE AND HYPNOSIS
I love that quote. Everyone I work with wants to do common sense things that should be easy to do. They want to stop smoking, eat right, control anxiety, focus on important areas of life and avoid distractions. All of these things are just common sense. It’s common sense to not smoke tobacco. It’s common sense to eat healthy foods. It’s common sense to get physical activity. It’s common sense that speaking to groups of people should be easy. These things should be easy … but they are not. If gaining this level of control were easy people wouldn’t need [...]
