The Master Mind in You

Author - Sugar..the Hidden Eating Disorder and How to Lick It - Available on

Author & Producer of +400 eBooks & Clinical Self-Hypnosis Sessions


A PERSONAL MESSAGE TO MY FOLLOWERS - Why I do the work I do..."I grew up believing I was flawed. I suffered abuse, rejection, low-self-esteem, and touched many addictions...some very frightening. One day, an ordinary day with extraordinary happenings, I was "introduced" to my still unknown Higher Self by my still unknown Spiritual Self. On that day I was asked to make the promise to help everyone I could find their "pathway" back to their Source or Spiritual Self. The help I needed would be given to me. This is where the words I write and record originate... I am an RN, Clinical Medical Hypnotherapist with a background in Oncology & Mental Health Nursing. I'm a therapist, coach & published author.

A few years ago I lost a son unexpectedly. My life changed...grief does that, but my path forward is clearer than ever.


"Learning how to design my own "inner world" has been an exciting experience. As you suggested in your books, I map out the life I want, just as if I was writing a book. How much fun! Nothing is impossible. I even develop scripts for others in my life. I'm experiencing changes in others as well as in myself. It's like "magic."

EB - Yes, writing out the details is vital. Our conscious mind is usually over-run with negativity, but as we learn to describe what we want, changes begin to happen as if by 'magic." But, you are the "magic".

"I've struggled my whole life. I've never felt special. I've been abused, both physically & emotionally. I never realized the I could change things for me. This was a tremendous revelation. I now have come to know a different me & the power I have inside of me. Thank you."

EB - Do know you are not alone in your life experience. I've been where you have been & my journey out of the dark was made on the back of a promise that I would share with others. God Bless."

"Thank you for these insights, but especially for the tools to make all the necessary changes in my lifestyle. I never thought I could get all of this in control at the same time. You have truly saved my life." KB, Sarasota, FL

EB - Yes, changing lifestyle behaviors is multi-faceted. Most people are not familiar with that and so continue to struggle and fail. Then, the name of the game to the subconscious mind is "failure." We attract what we have experienced UNLESS we change all the chapters in "the story." Author..Sugar..the Hidden Eating Disorder and How to Lick It

"Working with your programs have helped me to release my body stress, manage my emotions and plant new pictures in my mind that have changed my approach to my life. I only wish I had learned these techniques earlier in my life. I notice you have programs for children...what a great idea!" JR, Albany, NY

EB - Thank you for writing to me. Each of my programs is designed to open the body, release negative emotions, and enhance positive, helpful ones. This is called emotional management. By now you also know that emotions are embedded in your thoughts and now you can manage those as well. And yes, children learn to work with these tools at a very early age. I designed many of them for children I cared for while nursing in Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

TODAY - Each day is a "fresh start". Each day you can "walk out of habitual living" into a new way of living. Here's an image for you...relax deeply into the moment. Just focus on your breath. Allow it to be in your lower abdomen. Observe it for the count of 5. Close your eyes gently after reading this. Tilt them up slightly. There is your "mind screen." The moving truck is pulling out with all parts of your undesired habit. Observe it driving into the distance. Now, notice a new truck pulling up to the curb. Sense your excitement. Workers are putting a new scene together. You can watch the details or walk into it right now. Touch something is real. Notice you belong here! Sense the fulfillment of a change you have desired for so long. It is yours!

Spring is coming?...Looking out my window at the snow piled up so high, I have to settle on "just believing." For me the unending snow has become metaphorical. It has kept me house-bound and somewhat depressed, but's just snow.

When I think of Spring, I think of Spring Cleaning. I want the snow to go...I want the clutter to go...I want the disorder to go...I want to experience re-birth. I want the tulips to bloom. I want to see the grass. I want old issues to dissipate. There are things I'm tired of seeing and battling. Some are very old...others new on the scene. They came with the snow...uninvited, but I let them in. They are unhealthy and it is time for them to go. Some are negative thoughts...others are tangible. Today I will begin plans for the cleaning and clearing.

Life doesn't have to be filled with clutter. We can create the world we want, but it will be a real world...full of health, success, prosperity, joy, happiness and love. It will not be an escape, but a new reality. But, before we can "clear"...we must "see with clarity." Room by room, drawer by drawer, shelf by shelf, emotion by emotion, thought by thought. And then...of course...the junk!

How do we do this? How do we get there? On the wings of Zen and through detailed visualization. Here's the route...and you might wonder, where do you leave "the rocks in your pockets"?...In your resilience garden. All negatives are very valuable..look for the gold "inside." Visualization will show you the way.


"Is it difficult to learn hypnosis?" already do it all day long. We all walk around in a hypnotic trance state. We call it "being lost in our mind", "day-dreaming" or just "thinking." Remember, all thoughts are interpreted by the subconscious mind as "desired goals", so if you are thinking negatively....OH NO! And, this can be very dangerous!

"So why would I need to learn something that I already do?" Because your thoughts are not "goal-centered", but "free-range." There is a lack of focus, a lack of specific detailed imagery that is emotionalized, there is a lack of use of your already present potential and previous mind work, are most likely not "future-pacing" detailed images of what you want.

"Where do I begin?" Well, I would suggest you work with some of my workshops. Just about any one of them will do. They will all prepare you to enter your "creative mind" through deep relaxation and then teach you the techniques of entering your own "center of creativity" directly through images or your own imagination. You will learn how to do this "in the moment", so you can take advantage of "mind editing" and "planting new, powerful suggestions" right in the moment....following the cleaning up of old images that may not be working for you.

THE HYPNOSIS WORKSHOP - This mp3 offers two Sessions. You, the listener, will go directly to your Inner Workshop in the Creative Center of your Mind. Here you will relax, open a book about your past and future where you then "enter" the images on the pages and work directly "inside" the scenes. You get to write, produce and direct any changes. You come into contact with your emotional states who appear as "children" waiting for your direction. You can make the negative emotions "smaller" and the positive emotions "bigger or enhanced."

This is one of my favorite hypnosis workshops. I love to enter the many scenes of my past life, while designing my future "pages."

DO YOU WORK WITH YOUR OWN PROGRAMS? Yes, I listen to something each day. Self-work or Self-rehab never ends and that is a good thing. It always amazes me as to what is hidden away and having the tools to excavate it a blessing. I remain grateful...

More to come... keep asking those questions and I'll keep answering them. If you are new to my "educational blog", please scroll down for more information and how to contact me.

Questions and Answers

If you are following my blog, I suggest you always scan down for earlier information and questions. I receive so many and do my best to clarify how Interactive Self-Hypnosis works, and WHY it works in so many areas of lifestyle changes, addictions, assisting healing of medical diagnoses, performance of all sorts, and many other areas of mind/body/spirit self-work.

ABOUT SPORTS IMAGERY AND HYPNOSIS - This is a very interesting area for the use of Interactive Self-Hypnosis. It works well for all sports and is successful for children as well as adults. First and foremost, the mind/body must relax on "automatic pilot." This is achieved on the first Session of all programs with the focus and flow practice of mental biofeedback or body scanning. The body needs to find a "new home" in it's level of "tension." Most of us wake up in a tense state, even though we just slept. When the body is reprogrammed hypnotically, the amount of tension is "re-set", so we start of in what we might call a "new body." Next, in sports, we want to examine thoughts, emotions and how they are related to the body. Again, this becomes "automatic" when practicing Interactive Self-Hypnosis. This is called HEIGHTENED AWARENESS and is one of the most important mind/body tools for developing excellence in sports and quite honestly, every other area of life. The second Session of every sports program takes the listener "inside" the body of someone who is "excellent" in the particular genre of sport. Here, the listener, experiences and programs their own subconscious mind for high level performance.

Order Sports Session Programs from our Catalog. They are all Download Now. Choose from golf to basketball, gymnastics, hockey, swimming, figure skating, snow boarding, skiing, darts, archery, wrestling, boxing, lacrosse, diving, rowing and many more.

SELF-IMAGE, SELF-ESTEEM AND NEGATIVE THINKING - In order to compete at high levels and to "enjoy" life, one needs to move out of negative living and into a "new life scenario." Most of us pay little attention to the images and chat that play in our mind. Here's the thing...everything you play is a "goal." Not only that, it is a special kind of with electrical pull, just like a magnet. We may know this as the Law of Attraction, but it is more than that. Not only do we attract what we think or see in our "mind's eye", but the creative/subconscious mind finds matches from our past, even our unconscious, as well as from other areas of the world. It is really quite incredible.

Now..reverse negative thinking into the placement of images/affirmations that speak a "different language" even IF you don't believe it. The magnetic quality of the image will begin to filter into the subconscious mind, bringing forth aspects of change, and then serendipitous occurrences. This is the power of Interactive Self-Hypnosis.

Have a look at our catalog. Choose Sessions that address an area you might like to have for yourself...GIFT yourself. If you need help in choosing, please write to me Write "Help Choose Program" in the subject line. I'll get right back to you.

REGRESSION AND FUTURE PACING - All Sessions include regression of your current life. It's important to re-edit negative mind programs and/or labels placed on you by others or by yourself. Future pacing means taking an emotionalized image of "what you want" and placing it in your "future." There it sits, ready to fire off when the moment occurs!

INNER CHILD COMMUNICATION - We have a "therapeutic self" and a "child-self." This part often needs the parental touch of the kind, but firm "therapeutic self." You can achieve this through meditation, journaling or working with Sessions designed for this inner work.

Now, for more information, please scan down to the next blog post.

Inside Interactive Self-Hypnosis

ON A PERSONAL NOTE - Waiting for Nemo..our next blizzard. Snow piled 8 feet high. Tension also piled high. Time to journal & relax deeply. Stay safe if you are in the way of this monster!

WINNING THE MIND GAME - Whether it be sports performance or any other performance, thoughts and emotions need to be managed for high level outcomes. Positive winning imagery replaces negative mind programs. The body needs deep relaxation "in the moment" & then a winning image with positive emotions can be executed! Visit Catalog for full list of all sports programs.


BEING FAT - "Why should I care? I prefer food to small jeans!" Well, it isn't about small jeans. It's about your body fat percentage in relation to your lean body mass and what that means to your long term health. Remember, long term may not be as long as you think! When your lean body mass breaks down, which it does from poor nutrition, you store fat which is dangerous to your health. It is the precursor of killer diseases, plus many chronic conditions and even your emotional/cognitive health.
Catalog contains full list of eating issue & motivation/discipline programs.

AMAZON EBOOKS/INTERACTIVE - AMAZON AUTHOR PAGE">Check out my Amazon Author Page for Interactive EBooks with mp3 Download Sessions embedded.

GRIEVING/DEPRESSION - Every emotion we experience is filled with energy. We can "transmute" or change that it. This doesn't happen overnight. After my son died unexpectedly, I worked each day to move myself "up the ladder" and took my energy with me. I'm writing a book about this and will let you know when it is ready for publication. Look for programs on Thought, Emotional and Resilience Management.

WEIGHT LOSS/COMPULSIVE EATING - This is a multi-faceted journey, but a "journey" it is. If you have read my blogs I write a lot on this subject and have many mp3 Sessions that address the mind/body/spirit connection.

ANOTHER QUESTION - COACHING - Yes, I still work with patients/clients one on one through Skype. All Sessions include daily support... ;-) Contact me directly.

WHAT DO YOU WANT OR NEED AND HOW CAN INTERACTIVE SELF-HYPNOSIS GET IT FOR YOU?- The "catalog" of my Interactive Self-Hypnosis Sessions is located on all of my websites. There are over 800 Sessions. Each subject offers 2-3 Sessions. These have been written, recorded and compiled over twenty plus years of clinical practice. When you visit my websites you will find "catalog tabs" to assist you in the different areas. Some include weight, focus, accelerated learning, self-development, disease prevention, disease management, sports, affirmations, kids programs, etc. When you click on each Session Program you will find a description of the subject contents. When you choose to buy a Session Program, you will be transferred to a page for Download Now. It's as simple as that. You will receive your Interactive Self-Hypnosis Sessions immediately.

Interactive Self-Hypnosis Sessions not only provide you with "real Sessions", just as if you were sitting in my office, but you will be learning "self-techniques" for the practice of Mindful Interactive Self-Hypnosis as you go through your day. You will have the opportunity to program your own Creative Subconscious Mind for Change. Permanent Change happens in the "Now." Your subconscious mind has learned the many facets of what needs to change or what you choose to develop, for example enhancing your memory, stopping compulsive or addictive behaviors, accelerating your learning, becoming aware of negative thinking, as well as editing any existing mind program that is getting in your way. Many mind programs have been living in your subconscious mind for decades. Some are conscious, others are unconscious. When you Interactive Self-Hypnosis, you will edit, change or even delete old, unnecessary programs or ENHANCE positive programming to a higher level so it works for you in the life you are now living.

Interactive Self-Hypnosis is utilized in the "Now." The "Now" is the moment at hand. The "Now" is like the scene of a play and you are the "actor." You are also the Writer, Director and Producer. Just like in a Broadway Production, this is YOUR LIFE. You get to make the decisions about the "Now" moments you are playing. Here is where you change your actions, emotions that are present, and go through the door of the "future" and place the "new scene" on the stage before you.

Interactive Self-Hypnosis Sessions are like coming to my office and working through problems, or desires that seem to be eluding you. Life is like a merry-go-round. It keeps going round and round. Minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years move along and you are still on the same "stage." Now you have the opportunity to change the "merry-go-round" program.

ABOUT THE "NOW" - Every moment is a self-hypnotic moment. Every moment you are playing thoughts in your mind that are "emotionally charged." These bring behaviors. Some are automatic, others are not, but directed by the thoughts you are playing. The "Now" is filled with motivators, suggestions and triggers. Anyone in sales knows this. You might have said to yourself, "He pushes my buttons." Those are your automatic self-hypnotic buttons that are already present in your subconscious mind library. Some are good and walk you towards your current chosen behavior and others block your goals. It's like a football game. You are trying to "score" and others are blocking you....even yourSELF. You might trip yourself, knock yourself down, even block the sight of what you want to achieve.

ENTER INTERACTIVE SELF-HYPNOSIS - The "Now" belongs to you. It is your stage, your production, you are the actor, director, producer and writer. This is your LIFE. You OWN take care of the "moments" as they arise and program them for the future. Once they are programmed, you open the door of your "future Path" and place them, just like seeds in a garden.

SPIRITUALITY - We all have beliefs. Some of us believe in God, others in a Higher Power, but even if these beliefs don't suit you, do know that you have a Higher Self. It talks to you all day long through your thoughts. When working with Interactive Self-Hypnosis you will be engaging with this part of you, or the part you may feel is beyond you. You will come to learn that "all" is connected and waiting for you to join in the get off the merry-go-round and onto the "Stage of the Now."

Through this blog I invite you to work along-side of me as I continue to re-edit my own "Now Moments". Editing is a life-time process. One can always get better and remember, your subconscious and unconscious mind has been programmed since birth, so there is plenty to "clean and clear" and energy from those things that can be "transmuted" or changed to energize yourself forward in the direction of High Level Health and Performance.

The Magic of the Masters

Your Master or Higher Self is available to you in "every moment." Here are the Hypnosis Sessions for you to access these "subject by subject." There are Sessions for adults, executives, athletes and children. SESSIONS CATALOG If you need help in choosing, please write to me directly.

CONTENT...Looking for professionally written content? Please contact me directly.

I'm busy working with my personal Masters and Spiritual Guides. As I go about my plans for 2015, some seem to be "spiritually edited". It's like having an "inner coach" guiding me. The good news is that my Guiding Forces don't get snowed in with blizzards followed by snow storms as we are here in Rhode Island.

So, you might wonder, "Who are the Masters?" I believe they are different for all of us. I believe what is important is to keep an open mind and to believe in something Higher than our day to day consciousness. This is how we we move out of we come to meet our innate possibilities. We meet our Purpose head on.

Today is about how I envision my "Masters" and how I work with them in my life. You may have a different view. Your "Masters" may be telling you that right now because of the conversation we are having through these words. That's how reading and the delivery of words and images work in the subconscious mind. I invite you to enjoy the process.

I was brought up in a Catholic family. Every Sunday we went to mass and prayed to God and Saints, often asking special requests. Whenever we pray, even if we don't follow any organized religion, we are looking for connection to Spiritual Beings. While I no longer practice Catholicism, I still have some of my original Spiritual Beings hanging around. Saint Jude, as well as Saint Anthony get many requests as I walk my Path. I sense them, and many others "lighting the way" for me, pointing out the signposts that speak to me through words and images.


I'm asked, "Do we all have Masters?" I can only tell you what I believe, and to this question the answer is "Yes." This answer is not a guess, but a logical response for I never met a person who didn't have a "suggestion" or even a "Eureka" presenting itself. These are thoughts that seem to come all by themselves. We might receive them with body sensations...perhaps a feeling like an electric current or a splay of brightness.

On other occasions we find ourselves asking self-questions, and the mind answers. Sometimes answers come without questions, perhaps triggered by an incidence of even for no special reason at all. For me, all of these are welcomed. "What about negativity?" Yes, of course, negative thoughts and experiences present themselves. After all, we are here to "learn and to teach." We need negativity to wake us up and energize us through setbacks. Some of these are our greatest teachers.

I'm asked so many questions in this area of what I call "my spiritual connection." I'm asked if I believe in Spirits. My answer is "yes." Do I believe in Angels? Yes, I do. Do I believe in people who have passed to come back and look after me. My answer is "yes." Do I believe in unknown "Masters of Spiritual Guides?" Yes, I do, but I believe that even if I don't recognize them, they are never unknown. They often come to me in an uncanny way.. perhaps from a book I read or a movie that moved me, or a passing thought that seemed to come out of nowhere. I can sense them directing me right in this moment. All I have to do is "check in" regularly. If not, I may get a whack on the side of my head to awaken me.

I have a big library collected over decades. Each time I pick up a book it is like the "first time." For me, this is very Knowing. All books, fiction and non-fiction are written by "Masters." Books are a creative process born in the subconscious mind of the author, or perhaps channeled by another Master. I know this to be true in my own work.

These books came to my attention from "somewhere" or "someone" brought them to my attention. Did you ever have the experience of visiting a book store and having a book almost jump off the shelf to get your attention? How about someone reading a book on the subway or while waiting in the dentist's office? How about a magazine article that you open to without thinking? What I know is this...your subconscious mind knows what you need and is ready to bring the precise information to you. It's like having a very talented personal assistant.


I know that Masters channel through me especially when I'm meditating, just being still or writing. Writing can be journaling or creative writing in any form. When I was writing my Audio Programs I remember sitting back and allowing my fingers to type on their own. I had the same experience when recording the Programs. When I listen to them, some of them written and recorded decades ago, they are new again to my mind.

During my clinical work I have the same experience with my "Volunteer Masters." I sense them sitting by my side as I enter my own "therapeutic trance state" with my patient. I know I am connecting with the subconscious mind or Masters present in my patient. It's like our Masters are discussing things with each other. You may wonder "why" I sense this. That's an interesting question and one I've asked myself over the years. Here's what I patient will tell me that something was "right on target". They might ask me "how did you know that?" For me, this is the Magic of the Masters. I am forever grateful to be a witness to this.


I'm busy organizing my work. It is in process. Things I thought to do first have been moved to a lesser priority. This was not a conscious decision, but one from a deeper place. I'm playing in mind as I write. I'm deeply relaxed. I've entered my "inner school room" that is run by a fantastic Master. My chosen goals are sitting on my desk, but they have been re-arranged. The Master Teacher is explaining how I am to "tap-tap" on the goal image to gain entry. I relax even deeper. She places a "prosperity star" on my desk for me to take with me when I enter the image.

I am ready...

Masters at Work...
originally posted: January 28, 2015

The last few days have been "unique." I've had two meetings with my Spiritual Guides and Masters. I wasn't planning on much happening because we have been in the middle of "Juno". Earlier in the week we had another storm, leaving snow and ice to deal with...then came Juno dumping almost three feet of snow, hurricane winds, and drifts that are around five feet. Bobbie, my snow plow guy, showed up as soon the road ban was lifted. He ended up getting stuck in our driveway, but I've learned never to underestimate the original Rhode Island natives. He brought his teenage daughter along who is a wrestler. She had a snow shovel, so I paid her to open the front steps. Half-an-hour later my next door neighbor arrived with homemade chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven. Then, if that wasn't enough, he shoveled out our mail box and the fire hydrant.

MASTERS AT WORK...Masters come in all forms. Releasing my worries, keeping the electricity intact, opening the roads, and those warm, chocolate perfumed cookies. Feeling grateful and filled with love, my feet took me up to my office where clutter abounds. Before I can begin my writing goals, the clutter has to be addressed. Here come the "Masters" again. Piles of papers that I haven't been energized to address in the last months found their way to the trash or newly organized files, leaving my writing files ready to be addressed. The "Masters" also decided on emptying other clutter, most having nothing to do with my writing, but certainly clearing my mind and lifting my Spirit.

There is a definite relationship between clutter and creativity. Clearing my desk, dusting the shelves, opening the mind to new adventures. In the middle of this I came upon a local professional who is an "editor." He found me through this blog and we've been communicating about various projects. The "Masters" at work. As I picked up my many binders that were organized, well sort-of, sometime in the past, I felt my old love arising. Yes, I love my work. I love my writing. I love my messy pile of papers. This may sound ridiculous, but whenever a creative person, and we are all creative, picks up their "joy", the love spills out. My intuition told me that my work had missed me....yes, it is a living thing. All of our creative projects are living things, even when they simply exist in our mind. Do know that...and be sure to love them back.

Tonight I'm spending time with my Master (Minds)...a party of sorts. We are back around the fire, sitting on the comfortable stones, the brook babbling in the background. We are quiet and dreamy...each of us in our own way, but communicating through our dreamy-ness. The Masters in charge of organizing have written additional suggestions, but there is no pushing or efforting. They make it clear that all will be tended to in the time-frame that has already been decided.

When one works "hypnotically", the work is done "backwards." The end goal is imaged, then energized with powerful, positive emotions, and the invitation goes out to "step inside and feel the experience. Walk around, enjoy it, and then notice the steps that brought you where you need to travel back for they are already moving along like a private escalator. Look again...there is a future path that leads from the already achieved goal that takes you to new adventures and heights. If you like you can explore there....a Master is always available to accompany you. Right now I'm enjoying the quiet of the fire, and communicating in silence, but later tonight I'll go down the future path in my dream states.


***Here we are back to the food issues. This reminds me of one of my biggest motivators from many decades ago. I just wanted the food business to be OVER. I had enough of thinking about it, day in and day out. My wish for everyone is that they find that motivator and get the business done. There were many questions about losing weight. Here's the thing. IF you give your body what it needs, your lean body mass will grow, your excess fat will burn and you will feel terrific. You will find that there are so many wonderful foods to enjoy and it doesn't take a lot of time to change your old habits. In fact, you will enjoy your food so much more. Yes, I did have to spend time organizing myself in this regard, and yes...that child-self part of me did fight and procrastinate, but as I said at the beginning of this discussion, I had ENOUGH of THINKING ABOUT THIS. I wanted it over and done with. I can't express how powerful that motivator was and still is for me. I never want to go back. There isn't a food that is worth it to me. Yes, I can eat some of those again, but I do think twice about "going there." Yes, there are foods I don't allow in the house, just like some people I know.

***How long did it take me to get everything straightened out? A week...and then the rest of my life up until now. This is an ongoing process. I look at it "as getting better and enjoying it more." Question, do I cook? Well, yes....but nothing complicated. I focus on quick grilling of protein, fresh vegetables, legumes, and fruits/berries. I never drink soda/pop, I do drink coffee, I don't use sugar on anything, I don't snack, I'm never hungry, I sleep well, I exercise daily with efforting or pushing myself, and yes, I do enjoy a drink once a week. I do eat in restaurants on occasion, I do enjoy good bread on occasion, I rarely eat white foods...or junk. I do like nuts. I think this answers most of the questions up to date. Oh...I do use hypnotic techniques daily. There, that does it.

OK..we are getting ready for another storm and more next week. My Masters have told me not to be concerned. All will turn out well, and by the end of the week a good part of my organization will be in place.

Yesterday I wrote about having a meeting with my Spiritual Guides and Inner Teachers. I've been meeting with them for years, sometimes in "formal meetings" like yesterday and often times "in the moment." Many years ago I began noticing that they follow me around. All of this "noticing" began when I started journaling regularly, but the more aware I became, the more I realized that they have been following me since early childhood....and most likely before. I now believe they are a part of me. I might call them by different names, but most of them are very familiar.

Sometimes when I'm reading a book, or a magazine or just driving home from work, my attention is brought to something that carries a message. In the past I was amused by these coincidences, but now I know they are more than that. Certain thoughts may enter my mind, and if they are not useful or negative in any shape or form, there are those !@#$% Spiritual Guides correcting me "right in the moment." It's like having a group of personal assistants or coaches checking on my every move.

I'm always asked questions about my personal work in Interactive Self-Hypnosis, and I'm always willing to share. A long time ago a colleague of mine suggested that I never tell anyone about my personal experiences. My answer to that was "rubbish." If I'm not going to be "authentic" then I have no business in my profession. The answer I received from my "colleagues in the Universe" were "go right ahead." And so I "go right ahead."

I do write a lot about eating issues, and unfortunately I much prefer to write about other things, but this darn subject keeps chasing me, and for good reason. It is a "darn subject." It makes me crazy to see what is going on in the area of food and how it connects to the mind, body, creativity and Spirit. There is a part of me that knows I will not be able to make a big dent in this problem, but I cannot give up when the need arises...

Here are a few questions I was asked in the last few days...

***I am always surrounded by food and people who are eating. This may sound ridiculous, but it is true. I don't see how I can change and still live in my world.'s the thing. The world you are speaking about is a dangerous world, one that brings all sorts of problems as life progresses. You need to move into a "different world." "What," you say, "a different world?" literally move into a world that has different eating rules. While I don't like the word "rules", in the beginning of change you might need that word. As time passes, you will accept your new world as "normal" for you.

Hypnosis is key in moving you into your new world. But, you must gain Knowledge to set up your new world. This is where the problem occurs. People often think that hypnosis will cause them to lose weight. That is an incorrect perception. You want hypnotherapy to set up your new abode, all organized with the things you need, including a relationship with your "future selves" and "Spiritual Guides." As you enter each day you will board the bus that takes you on your already planned healthy route, accompanied by your motivating Selves and Guides. It is not only enjoyable, but a super-fun way to live and play.

"What about the others," you may wonder. "Well, they have their own "bus ticket." They travel their own route and experience their own destination. "What do you say to them," you ask. "Nothing." Your life is your life and they own their own life. If you need to say something, your Guides will speak the words for you....gentle, kind and to the point. Soon people will leave you alone with your own "bus ticket." They may leave your relationship or not. Sometimes they will follow you, and that is wonderful, but you will always remain quiet about it. This is their life and their journey. Allow them to feel their own power. Time to smile inwardly. Spiritual Guides took some time off today because of the Blizzard we had here in Rhode Island. Our focus was safety and getting through the storm in an enjoyable way, as silly as that may sound. Remember, each day when we awaken we ask to be able to make our day benefit, not only ourselves, but others who are walking through life. I found myself focusing on that, even finding more ways than usual to bring a higher self-esteem to those who crossed my snowy path.

I did meet, in a serendipitous fashion, two new people who I could help and enjoy their suggestions to me. So, it was a very fruitful day. I look forward to dreaming tonight about my office, my work and new organization. My Spiritual Guides and Mentors are already in process. I see them in my "mind's eye." They smile back at me...

Re: Sugar...the Hidden Eating Disorder - Excerpts (December 4, 2011)

Wonderfully insightful and beautifully written post. I struggled for over 40 years with eating disorders and disordered eating and what you've written is so true, especially the part about being an information-gatherer.

Re: The Art of Self-Tweaking (May 20, 2010)

I love your blog regarding the art of tweaking! I've enjoyed a number of your tapes (way back when) and now mp3 recordings. Your imagery is deep and rich; it resonates with me. I really enjoy reading your creative thoughts and ideas!

Re: The Art of Self-Tweaking (May 20, 2010)

Thank you Elizabeth for this article. I was reminded of a talk I used to give several years ago, particularly to business people, but it also (I believe) has a message for people in general, except that the image I used mightn't be meaningful for them.

The message is simple and is contained in its title "You are your own product manager." When you know the responsibilities and role of a product manager, the message is quite clear. But what I wanted my audiences to understand and believe, is that their future is their responsibility.

Thank you for the opportunity to comment.

Re: Brick Throwing & Ducking (May 18, 2010)

Once again my comment arises from my business background. In sales your prospect (customer) will always offer some objections. It doesn't matter whether the objection is valid or not, or significant or trivial. What it is - is something to be dealt with. Each objection you treat seriously and overcome, becomes a new selling point for whatever your product or service is. The customer might be objecting simply to show that s/he is in command. Your treatment of it validates the customer's self-perception, and increases your acceptance value in his/her eyes. But whatever - an objection requires you to consider it, and if necessary to take some relevant action - requires you to react positively.
