Happy Fall, Friends!

Last month was the very first time I have missed posting a monthly inspiration.  Not because I was uninspired (I am always inspired) I was just swamped.  One of the most important things I have learned in my school of wisdom (read: getting older) is not to over extend myself to the point of creating stress and madness.   At one time, I was brilliant at that. I still have to check myself, and I do.

 Currently I am in Deland Florida performing my comedy hypnosis show at the Volusia County Fair and Youth Show for the next 2 weeks. I am in a spectacular mood, even if my alarm clock didn’t go off the day I left and I was like a CAT5 Hurricane getting ready to get out the door and to the airport. Oh well.  “And so what?”  I made it!   All is well :)

 I love what I do so much. I love people. I love meeting people who I have been FB friends with and getting to meet them for the first time as well as seeing them again as is the case when I hit the same cities twice or more.  Every city brings a new energy and this little city is full of really fun people who want to have a good time, and nothing will give people a better time than a comedy hypnosis show!

 I love putting people in hypnosis because contrary to what it looks like, they are not sleeping, in fact, they are simply in the dream state, that wonderful place between asleep and awake when your best ideas and solutions to problems come to you so easily. A person in hypnosis doesn’t care what people think, there is no critical factor to the mind as when they are in full consciousness and judging everything that they say, and even think. They have no fear. Even though their eyes are open while performing routines and suggestions I give them to follow, they are in the “dream” state and even know that what I am asking is ridiculous, but they do it anyway because to them it simply sounds like a great idea.”  When they open their eyes and see the audience, they see them, they just don’t bother to think about why they are there.

 Imagine what it would be like, if in our conscious state we could be fearless, courageous, not be too concerned with what others are thinking of us to the degree that it holds us back from being our best, most authentic selves?  What if in our mind, all things were possible instead of the fear of maybe failing?  What if we could stay focused and concentrated on things instead of scattered and distracted by the “bright, shiny, objects?”

  Your mind is a beautiful gift from God, and you can learn to use it well.

Quiet the tapes playing in your head. You can learn to be a better communicator.   You can learn how take control of your emotions so that they don’t control you. 

 If you have the ability to come to Las Vegas and take my 'Get Your Fire Back' week-end seminar In January, please come take it. It will change your life, and you will have more fun than you can even imagine. I will be your personal life coach for the week-end and you will begin to look at life and people in a whole new way so you can take back some control and stop giving away your personal power.

This would also make an incredible Christmas gift. I have had mother-daughters attend together and separately.

 No matter if you can come here or not, you can take control of your emotions which run pretty much everything.

 Self-hypnosis is entirely possible, I do it all the time when I am feeling stressed out by life, or people.

Truly, it all begins with a slow, deep, breath in and out.  Then a pause to feel (not think) what is being asked of you (at work or in your personal life) and if what’s being asked is what’s best for you.

Decisions that tweak us need to be a win-win situation or it’s a “no.”

You are the most important person in your Universe. Everyone depends on you and you have to take care of yourself (and your mind) first, before you can take care of everyone else.  Hence the saying:

When Mamas happy, everybody’s happy J

 You are loved!
