Using hypnosis for self improvement is a great tool for goal setting and personal development. Most people are surprised at how easy it is to learn self-hypnosis. And self-hypnosis, in turn, makes a lot of things much easier for you to learn as well.
Self improvement using hypnosis is usually thought of as a person listening to a digital audio program, mp3, or other type of personal developemnt media, which helps the listener to relax and open up to receive suggestions centered around a specific topic such as increasing your income, dating confidence, weight loss, stop smoking, etc.
Audio hypnosis programs are a great way for you to start experiencing hypnosis and improving your life to become better since you simply listen to them either while you sleep or when you relax
How do you incorporate hypnosis into your self improvement practice?
To be successful with self improvement hypnosis programs, there are certain aspects that should be addressed.
The best hypnosis program you could use for self improvement would be one you create yourself because your would be able to address the exact deeply personal issues that may be sabotaging your personal development.
Unlike general topic audio hypnosis programs, this hypnosis session would be made for the exact personal issue you want to address, including the precise words and phrases that mean the most to you so a "perfect" self hypnosis progam would have to be crafted by the person using it to suit his or her own needs.
This would entail buying recording software, a microphone, learning basic audio enginering and then writing out and recording each hypnosis program script.... And THAT'S A LOT OF WORK!
With that being said, you still can easily use the DIY method (Do It Yourself) because everytime you relax, you go into a hypnotic trance state.
Below is a quick process for using hypnosis for self improvement.
1. Write down in a positive statement ONE GOAL you want to achieve.
EXAMPLE - "I wake up everyday at 6am refreshed, energized and excited to start my day"
2. Find a quiet place to sit and be alone so you can relax without interruption AND TURN OFF ALL DEVICES (phone, computer, tv, radio, etc)
3. Make sure you are sitting NOT lying down (you may fall asleep). Take 3 deep breaths in thru nose and exhale thru your mouth. On the 3rd exhalation, close your eyes.
4. Begin repeating your statement. EXAMPLE - "I wake up everyday at 6am refreshed, energized and excited to start my day". See yourself doing it, feeling it, touching it, smelling it, hearing it.
5. Continue imagining actually expereincing what you want for at least 3-5 minutes. Then take 3 deep breaths in thru your nose and out thru your mouth while smiling and feeling proud of honoring yourself with this incredible gift of using hypnosis for self improvement.
Finally, make a promise to yourself to put the practice of self hypnosis into your daily life and schedule it daily. By doing this, it will become an automatic habit for you.

How can you make your next AGM, sales retreat, association meeting, staff christmas party, company function or banquette an amazing time for your organization?
The answer is to make it unique, interactive, fun and exciting with outstanding and memorable entertainment!
Many event planners are concerned about the venue, the food, the decorations and timing. Unfortunately choosing the entertainment is sometimes left until the end of the planning process.
By this time, most of the event budget has been used up and they are forced to hire entertainment with the small funds that remain.
As a result, the only options left become the local DJ, comedian, juggler or kids magician which may not provide their guests with the amazingly memorable experience you were hoping for.
With low budget entertainment, they may also worry that the material covered by the comedian will not be corporate friendly, the magician will be doing kids birthday party tricks and making bad jokes, or the juggler who claims that their flame throwing baton act is completely safe, really isn't.
This may be due to a previous experience with an unprofessional performer or a horror story from a colleague.
But by planning in advance and dedicating a 25-50% portion of your entire event budget towards entertainment in advance first, you will be able to secure an act that adds tremendous value to your event and who makes it a fun, memorable, positive experience for everyone.
The right corporate entertainer will get your group involved with shared laughter and shared experiences that can create team unity.
And possibly more important, hiring a professional entertainer who also motivates and inspires your guests can help you relay your event's message to your group.
So what should you look for when hiring a professional entertainer?
1. The entertainment should be "corporate friendly". This means that the performance should be clean language, non-embarrasing, and G-PG rated depending on the event planner's requests.
2. Guests should not be put on the spot or humiliated in any way, shape or form.
3. It should be interactive. Shared laughter is a wonderful bonding experience. It creates commaraderie, strengthens freindships and promotes deeper trust.
4. The entertainment you hire should be unique and interactive. Events lose their appeal when they feature the "same thing as last year". Search to bring your audience something that is new and that they will be excited to see.
By using these 4 event planning tips, you can make your next event a memorable experience that not only succeeds in entertaining your audience, but can also drive home your company message and objectives which creates a great double return on your investment!

Does Hypnosis Work?
Working with hypnosis as a Hypnotist and a MindPower Programs coach is very rewarding as I get the privilege of helping people understand how their thoughts create their reality and work with people who want to achieve better results in their lives.
In fact there is never really a day that I get out of bed and think ‘oh no – another boring day at work’ as each and every day brings many more new hypnosis clients and many more new challenges that always keeps me on my toes.
Many people also find my job fascinating and I am never short of anything to say when I am with friends or meeting new people as that age old question always rises about what I do!
Actually someone asked me the other night – ‘That hypnosis thing? Does it really work?’ I always laugh and say ‘of course not, don’t be so ridiculous!’
Of course I'm joking with them but it still amazes me that people still don’t actually believe that Hypnosis can work.
To put it simply, hypnosis is simply the act of giving, receiving and most importantly, accepting suggestions.
For instance... imagine me saying this to you,
"I'm hungry, do you feel hungry too?"
A second ago, you may not not have had any feelings of hunger but once I suggested it, you may now suddenly feel a desire to eat.
If you now feel like eating, you just experienced hypnosis!
I gave you a suggestion. You received the suggestion. Then you accepted the suggestion and a result (feeling hungry) was achieved.
Still skeptical? Are you one of these people that still believes that it can't be that easy?
Well if you are, then it might be time that you woke up to the fact that your being hypnotized all the time.
Every time you watch TV, listen to the radio, read a book, listen to speaker or even your own self talk you are being hypnotized.
Hypnosis is going on all around you so you may want to start paying attention to how your being hypnotized and how your inadvertently hypnotizing other people too. Once your aware that hypnosis is always happening, then you can start to use it to improve your life.
Hypnosis can help you get you the life that you want and to help you to attain the things that you want to have.
One question I always ask my clients is ‘what would you achieve if nothing was impossible?’
The reason that I ask this is because as we grow into adulthood we stop using our ability to set high ambitions like we did as kids and we start to create limitations and reasons why we cant achieve certain things.
We actually begin to decide whether something is impossible or not – that’s right we actually set the limit on what is impossible!
As I said – Hypnosis is a viable option to achieve your goals.
So I want to ask you the question - what would you achieve if nothing was impossible?
Would you quit smoking, lose weight, get more confidence, make more money, improve your relationship or release that stress?
These are all things that people regularly use Hypnosis for.
The bottom line: MindPower Mastery Coaching with Hypnosis works!
Isn’t it time that you started to find out more information about how you can use Hypnosis to improve your own life?

Have you been "volun-told" to plan your company Christmas party event?
Most people who are planning staff holiday party events are not professional event planners and may not have previous experience in planning events.
As a result, company staff parties begin to suffer with declining attendance and interest.
If your staff feels like they "have to" attend organizational gatherings or company parties, it could be that your employees have been stuck in meeting rooms all day, forced to mingle and network with people they don't know, or perhaps don't care to know, or sit through the same entertainment for the past 5 years.
So how can you successfully plan your Christmas party event, sales retreat or annual general meeting an event for your guests to remember for years to come?
The answer is to make your event unique, interactive, fun and exciting with outstanding and memorable entertainment!
Many successful event planners are concerned about hiring bad entertainment for their functions.
They worry that the material covered by the comedian will not be corporate friendly, the magician will be pulling quarters from behind the guests ears and making bad jokes, or the juggler who claims that their flame throwing baton act is completely safe, really isn't.
This may be due to a previous event entertainment experience with an unprofessional performer or a horror story from a colleague.
However, it is important to keep in mind that the right event entertainment can add tremendous value to your company staff Christmas party and make it a fun, interactive memorable positive function.
The right company event entertainment can get your group involved and working together as a cohesive team, and it can get them laughing and feeling good about your event.
And possibly more important, providing event entertainment for your guests can also help you relay your event's message to your group in a way that will resonate with your group.
This is why it's so important to choose the right entertainment that will "wow" your guests and leave a positive lasting impression when you successfully plan a Christmas party event.

Sooooo what exactly is Self Hypnosis?
You may have heard the term "self hypnosis" but a lot of people don't truly understand what it is and why it is so important to learn.
You see, self hypnosis is a process by which you can program your mind to accept suggestions or believe in something in the subconscious state and reprogram your mind to create a better life for yourself.
Your mind is made up of 3 sets of conscious states.
The conscious mind (also known as the awake mind, rational mind or thinking mind), the subconscious mind (also know as the unconscious mind, the emotional mind or sleeping mind) and the super-conscious mind (or the spiritual energy mind).
In our awakened or "conscious" or "Beta" state, we analyze, compare and contrast everything we are presented with. In fact your conscious mind is probably comparing what your reading right now to something you may have read or heard about this subject in the past.
Pretty cool huh?
Only one state of consciousness rests or "sleeps" and this is the conscious mind. Remember this as this information will be important to our self hypnosis conversation very soon.
Now, our subconscious mind and our Super-conscious mind never rests or sleeps.
In fact, we would die if our subconscious mind took a break as it is like a super-computer that runs our main operating programs in the background 24 hours a day until our last breath.
Our subconscious mind controls our breathing, makes sure our heart keeps beating, out blood continues to flow, our cells continue to reproduce and so much more!
It also stores every single emotion that has been attached to all events we've experienced in our lives AND records every single event... good bad or ugly, as an accessible memory.
Remember this piece of information as well as this will very important to our self hypnosis conversation as well.
Finally there is the Super-conscious mind.
This is the energy field within us that is limitless creative potential. It is the true essence of all Creation and it resides inside of every living thing.
Since there are many "theories" about it and many organizations have their own thoughts about it, discussion about it can become a touchy subject which is why we will leave it out of our discussion for today. (If you have questions about how to empower your Super-Conscious Mind, contact me here)
So now that you know about your 3 minds, you now have the foundation to understand self hypnosis.
First, the words "self hypnosis" implies that your are hypnotizing yourself... and you are!
All hypnosis is self hypnosis. Even if you are working with a professional hypnotist for coaching or in a stage show, he or she is merely guiding you back into a natural state of self hypnosis you experience everyday and every night. (more info on states of self hypnosis can be found here)
Secondly, the act of self hypnosis is purposely quieting your conscious mind so it stops analyzing, comparing and contrasting.
Once this is accomplished, your subconscious mind can be reprogrammed with new thought programs which help you create new decisions and actions which produce better results in your life.
In future articles, we'll get into the proper way to begin reprogramming your subconscious mind with self hypnosis, but for now, let's just experience a little self hypnosis shall we?
