As your perceptions change, so will your outcomes. As you follow this workshop blog, you are learning to observe your inner mind programming, noticing what is helpful, as well as what is not. These are extremely important observations as they give you the opportunity to evaluate & then change course if necessary. You are also learning to choose to make changes in small moment fragments, even those these appear small on the surface, understanding that they are also taking you towards or away from your goals. Every moment, every thought, every emotion, every expectation is like buying a bus ticket to go there.

Heightened awareness is on your tool belt. You are getting better at observing the facets of your larger patterns. You are now seeing the auto-pilot responses you play without thinking, as well as how they are connected to your particular emotions, or those of others in your relationships.

If you are following along, you now have your Personal Assessment Plan in your pocket telling you where you are, where you want to go & what you need to get there. If you look at your tool belt, you will notice that you have room for more. You can see the nutritional tools, perhaps surprised at how many there are, but feeling confident that you truly understand the directions that accompanied them. You might have noticed changes already in place, as if someone else was holding the reins. This is the power of interactive self-hypnosis. You can also see your tools for mental biofeedback, emotional management & crayon awareness.

In this section of the book you will receive many advanced mind management tools to help open your subconscious mind, as well as place even more detailed programs into your inner file cabinet. Like all tools, these are meant to be utilized, not to be left on the shelf to get rusty. You already know it's not enough to read about things, simply expecting them to happen. You must take appropriate action, while managing your mind & body connection in order to etch new programs into place. The more skilled you become, the better your outcomes.


Mind tools have been utilized in the practice of medicine for thousands of years & continue to be utilized in top Universities of the world. There is even a special area of medicine called psycho-neuro-immunology, PNI for short, that encompasses research in the area of mind & body medicine.


I have been working with noticing my emotions and especially those that appear during my emotional craving times for sugar. I have improved my food & so the body cravings are much improved. However, I notice when I get bored or overwhelmed with work I think about eating junk. This is also a problem for me in the evenings when I’m finally finished with cleaning up & the children are in bed. I find it amazing how the same emotions come to find me at the same time every day. Will this ever change?

Amy is now awake & aware of her emotional connects to specific happenings in her day. This is extremely useful, because now she will be able to program her mind for change & then etch those new programs in place, motivating them with both inner & outer motivational systems.


Interactive awareness allows us to see tremendous detail in the moment. The more you stay in the position of producer/director, the more you will see. You can even ask for the scene to be replayed in slow motion. Relax deeply before doing this, so your focus will enhance at a lower brain wave speed. Bring your attention to your mind screen & choose the scene you would like to micro-study. Take your time. If you feel a block or your thoughts are wandering, don’t allow your compulsive desires to push you around in this important moment. The deeper you go into your observation mode, the more powerful the change program will be once you place it. Be patient. Everything you need to know is coming to you, but in small spoonfuls. This is the way to the knowledge hooks. When you notice something that invites change, act as if you were the director of this scene, for indeed you are. Simply stop the action & tell the actors in the scene, including the actor playing you, to follow your new direction. Now.... observe as this takes place.


Imagery, or the thoughts you play in your mind are everything. They are the crux of how you experience your body, your environment, your relationship to yourself , your relationship to others, as well as your spiritual life. You image continually like a VCR that is never turned off. Unfortunately, the most common imagery consists of negative, non-trusting, insecure, failure-orientated, worrisome, highly judgmental inner radio & visuals. These images are often followed by behaviors that match the program blueprints, thereby reinforcing the negative mind programs. You are now in the processes of exploring change & transforming your own existing images into ones that form the basis for managing your disorderly eating, your addiction, or any other problems that are taking you away from optimum health and performance.


Take a mini-mind break, allowing your body to sink into the chair where you are resting, perhaps yawning deeply, allowing a blue mist to encircle you, encouraging all stress & the need to rush through this material to exit the ends of your fingers. See yourself on your mind screen taking in small spoonfuls on powerful information designed to change your life in so many ways. Observe the words you have just read sinking into the library of your mind, like rain being absorbed into a road surface on a hot summer day. Allow your body to enjoy the blue mist for another moment and then continue with the next hook.


Until recently hypnosis has been viewed by the general public as a mysterious technique performed by people with strange skills & special powers. The truth of the matter is that there is nothing mystical or magical about hypnosis. It is simply a state of very deep relaxation & quiet focus. Emotions are put to sleep & awareness is heightened. It is a state of consciousness that we enter naturally, commonly known as automatic-pilot or daydreaming.

Hypnosis is not something someone does to you. All hypnosis is self-hypnosis. In this book you have already practiced various levels of deepening or trance for specific purposes or mind exercises. You have been programming your mind for change from the first page forward.

Interactive self-hypnosis is a health tool, perfect for changing lifestyle behaviors, managing addiction, disorderly eating, bringing any & all performance to the highest levels. It allows the healing of both mind & body from the stresses of life while inviting acceleration of learning & goal achievement beyond usual expectation.
