Why Sugar Addiction Happens after Quitting Alcoholism – Vol. 415, May 25, 2017

I was in the store the other day picking up a couple of things the lady behind me was lamenting her inability to say “no” to candy. I heard this of course, and explained to her that people crave sweets after they have stopped drinking, because alcohol is made of sugar. I also told her how an ex-landlord of mine who was a recovering alcoholic loved his sugar in all sorts of forms. She thanked me for this information, because she never knew of this connection between sugar cravings and alcohol.

So, how does one get rid of their sugar cravings? Well, I don’t know how people do it without hypnosis, but as a hypnotist I have helped a few people to do so. It is a simple matter really. I have a program that I use for smokers that I adapt to work with the sugar addicts and it works like a charm. It is one session of a 2 1/2 hours followed up with another session to make sure we are complete with the work.

I believe that this particular program works well for the sugar addicts because it was developed by a gentleman for smokers. It uses many different ways to get the unconscious mind to let go of the cravings without withdrawals.

Milton Erickson, one of the most respected hypnotist of all time said to “utilize everything.” I do this by cross purposing programs that work for one issue for similar types of issues and it works very well

If you believe that you are similar to this woman in having given up drinking alcohol because you had a problem with it and are now craving sweets, maybe you ought to give me a call to see what I could do to help you kick the sweets habit, as effortlessly as I know how.

Help For Diabetics, Hypnotically Speaking

diabetes photoVol. 414, May 18, 2017 – Help For Diabetics, Hypnotically Speaking – Vol. 414, May 18, 2017

Anyone who has diabetes realizes that it is a progressive disease that needs to be treated and healed, to stop the progression to blindness, neuropathy, skin ulcers that can lead to amputation and heart and lung problems.

By the way diabetes can also interfere with the natural workings of the brain because it can’t use the sugar that the brain needs to function. In this case, use medium chain fatty acids such as coconut oil to help your brain function.

There are different reasons why a person may become diabetic according to medical science. However, the one that I care about is the one that is due to emotional hurt, figured out by my colleague Gerald Kein over many years of practicing hypnosis. He saw that diabetes developed in people who had resentment and regret regarding the closer relationships in their lives. This created the emotional state of sadness and sometimes anger. He found that if one was to heal these emotional issues it made it much easier for them to heal their diabetes. His clients were able to lose weight, while helping his clients focus on eating high nutrition, low sugar based diets. By doing so he could help them to get off their type 2 diabetes medications and lower their type one diabetes medications ALWAYS with the HELP of the client’s DOCTOR of course.

I know that when one is craving carbs, it becomes difficult to limit those things that that turn to glucose (your body’s sugar). And it is the lack of being able to use that glucose to energize your cells that is the diabetes leading to cell death.

So, maybe you could use a bit of assistance by clearing your sadness and anger first, Then get a bit of help sticking to the diet that will best helps you to heal your diabetic issues?

Because the one thing that I do know after being in hypnotism for almost 15 years, is that those seemingly physical issues, are caused by emotional issues. Really, this is true. So, if you are game, give me a call and I would love to help you better understand the mind-body connection with diabetes: 781-315-1719 – do understand that I am in Southern California so Pacific Time is my time.

Maladaptive Dreaming (MD): What is It?

Maladaptive Dreaming (MD): What is It? – Vol. 413, May 11, 2017

When one gets into doing work in mental health, one gets to work with many types of issues. I had never heard of this condition until a client was referred to me who had this condition called maladaptive dreaming. It’s so new a diagnosis, that many people including myself have never heard of it. This is why I am writing a post on it. Because there may be other people who have this problem who need to know that they aren’t crazy, and that there are many others who suffer the inability to do those things they need and want to do because of the interference of maladaptive dreaming.

So, what exactly is it?

It is understood as a typical addiction in that it is an addictive coping mechanism. It is an addiction where you lose yourself to your fantasy. The daydreamer becomes the daydream. The focus of a person with MD focuses so hard on their inner thoughts that they lose their own ego. MD develops as a way to leave insecurities, problems and anything that may be interpreted as “bad” allowing you to feel free. This is why it feels so good. However, by cutting yourself off from the outside world, you can become completely cut off from reality.

The problem is that all those fantasies that have been created have nothing to do with the real person who has dreamed them up. Even if all those fantasies came true, the person who has MD would still feel empty and lonely, because the illness is all about you not wanting to be you. And this is what the addiction is all about – not wanting to be you.

The healing comes when the Fantasy world and the real world are merged into one.

Maladaptive Dreaming is created as a defense mechanism when you are unable to express yourself appropriately because you may be anxious, depressed, shy or lonely. Mental illness will change the way you perceive life, making everything seem more senseless then it is in reality. So, instead of seeing your world, you go inside to your fantasies creating an addiction to the great feelings they give you.

The dreams represent your subconscious mind, a testament to how hard your life has become, how hard you are struggling to not be dead. The interesting thing here is that because you do your MDing with passion, you are still capable of loving and caring about something, even other people.

The healing comes through giving up the false sense of comfort that your daydreams bring you.
You need to allow yourself to stop dissociating from painful situations, and instead allow yourself to feel the emotions.

If you acknowledge the urge to daydream and think of it as a false message, you will be able to stop the addictive cycle.

Of course because it is a dissociative process, hypnosis works well with it, hypnosis being done in a dissociative state. So, if you are having issues with maladaptive daydreaming, hypnosis may be a good way to end it.

Michael Beckwith’s Questions to Living Your Life On Purpose


questions photoMichael Beckwith’s Questions to Living Your Life On Purpose – Vol. 412, May 4, 2017

I love that Michael Beckwith’s focus as a spiritual teacher, is on the universe’s role for his followers. He makes it quite clear that it isn’t about praying to God, because God already loves you. It’s about listening to the purpose that is already encoded in you by asking empowering questions. Because, the main problem that people have in this life is that they ask disempowering questions as to why it is that they haven’t got those things they desire from life. They are busy doing “busy” activities instead of purposeful activities. So, I want you to ask yourself, right now: Am I living a life of purpose, on purpose, or am I just busy doing those things that I feel I must do, without any sort of purpose for having done them?

Michael states that every problem asks a question. Every question has an answer. Every answer you receive is the life you were born into being. This requires action.

After reading Michael’s questions, I want you to close your eyes and ask yourself each of these questions and then, just listen to “the ear, behind your ear” for the answer, as Micheal explains it. Allow the universe to speak through you. Again, the answers that come in, are to be based on what you receive as your own independent answers.

1. What is the universe trying to emerge through my life?
2. How much power can I flow through my life?
3. What do I need to do to empower my life?
4. What gifts do I have to give to the world?
5. What habits do I need to change to become the person I am being called to become?

Now, shut your eyes and ask each one of these questions.

Listen to the ear, behind your ear for the answer to each question based solely on what you hear. It has nothing to do with societal expectations, and it has nothing to do with what your parents may want you to become. It only has to do with who you are and what you are here to do.

Many years ago, I was folding an elder client’s laundry, having a hell of a time trying to neatly fold her king size bottom sheet, being a person with very short arms. It was at that moment I realized that this was definitely not the work that I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I started to dream of the sorts of unconventional lives that people lived who lived long happy, fulfilled lives. I came up with inventors, conductors, fine art photographers, performers and travel writers. I realized that these people pretty much had control over their lives doing those things that brought them happiness and fulfillment. So, I started to allow unconventional sorts of occupations to come into my life. It was after reading a few advertisements in two holistic health magazines that I found courses for becoming a hypnotist. I realized that all the knowledge that I had gained through working in mental health and with elders as well as the limited nursing education I received, could easily be utilized better by overlaying hypnosis over it. This is how I became a hypnotist.

I knew that I wasn’t meant for the conventional world, because none of it made any sense to me. I had witnessed too many stupid rules, too much hurt of my clients through those stupid rules and realized that there had to be a better way and I searched till I found it. No, I didn’t know that I would find it in the health magazines, but I kept my mind open to know when I saw the right work for me. I love the world of hypnotism. I love how quickly lives change, I love the fact that I have been able to travel the world both for trainings and to bring my work abroad. I love the writing, podcasting and public speaking involved. I love the teaching of it to those who are interested in learning about it. I love the wonderful way it has helped me to clear my own issues both in mental health and physical health, beyond what conventional medicine has to offer. It’s magical.

What has the universe asked you to do to create some of your own magic in this world? What can you do to be happy and fulfilled? Because that is what I want for you; to be happy and fulfilled in your life. To do those things that matter to you because they matter to you, and because you can make the world better for having been here. Because in the end, the only person who could possibly know what is important to you and the life you are to lead is you.

At the end of your life, you will want to know that you were your real authentic self. That is the way to true happiness and contentment. There is no other way.
