Deep Healing Squeeze

I made it through my list. Just now! Although I am sure more worrying could always be squeezed into my life... Speaking of squeezing, I've been a really good girl about picking my face this week. So the ten thousand zits on my chin have grown into adult craters waiting to explode. This morning, I took care of all that and it was marvelous. A perfect ending to a stressful time period.

Corey is going away for a road trip and I have completed my to do list, which leaves me with little to do. That means it's time to bake and cook again! Last night, I made marinara at 1030 at night. It got really good this time, too. I think that adding zucchini is a definite necessity. I haven't even examined Julia's ideas about pasta sauces. I'm still too busy combining different parental sauce wisdom to dabble into other people's ideas.

This morning, I'm baking Aunt Mariann's chocolate cake. I had to run around my building and beg people for coffee. Nobody understood that I didn't want coffee grinds, but that I needed a prepared cup of java. "Who doesn't have a coffee pot??" they all wondered. The answer is US! We hate coffee and we hate how it smells and tastes and looks and we don't have any cupboards anyway, so we don't have a coffee pot. The only reason I agree to add it to cakes is because I know that it all works out in the end.

So in three hours, I will be eating rich, creamy chocolate cake with homemade icing. That might end up being a better source of relief than my deep healing squeeze this morning.

i don't much like the taste, but i love the smell of coffee! don't you like cigars? how can you like the smell of cigar without liking the smell of coffee? the two smells have always been linked for me.

A typical dictionary definition of hypnosis states that it is: a state that resembles sleep but that is induced by suggestion. However, anyone who has tried hypnosis (and any self respecting hypnotist) will tell you that this is a very simplistic view of the subject!
A much better description comes from the Free Online Dictionary which states that hypnosis is: an artificially induced state of consciousness, characterised by heightened suggestibility and receptivity to direction. So what does this mean and how can it be used to your advantage?
Well, the subject of hypnosis has been discussed and pondered since the late 1700s. Many explanations and theories have come and gone though science, however, has yet to supply a valid and well-established definition of how it actually happens. It's fairly unlikely that the scientific community will arrive at a definitive explanation for hypnosis in the near future either, as the untapped resources of our 'mostly' uncharted mind still remain something of a mystery.
However, the general characteristics of hypnosis are well documented. It is a trance state characterized by extreme suggestibility, deep relaxation and heightened imaginative functioning. It's not really like sleep at all, because the subject is alert the whole time. It is most often compared to daydreaming, or the feeling you get when you watch a movie or read a captivating book. You are fully conscious, but you tune out most of the outside world. Your focus is concentrated intensely on the mental processes you are experiencing - if movies didn't provide such disassociation with everyday life and put a person in a very receptive state then they would not be as popular (nor would TV advertising be as effective!). Have you ever stated that a film wasn't great because you just couldn't 'get into it'???
This works very simply; while daydream or watching a movie, an imaginary world becomes almost real to you because it fully engages your emotional responses. Such mental pursuits will on most occasions cause real emotional responses such as fear, sadness or happiness (have you ever cried at a sad movie, felt excited by a future event not yet taken place or shivered at the thought of your worst fear?).
It is widely accepted that these states are all forms of self-hypnosis. If you take this view you can easily see that you go into and out of mild hypnotic states on a daily basis - when driving home from work, washing the dishes, or even listening to a boring conversation. Although these situations produce a mental state that is very receptive to suggestion the most powerful time for self-change occurs in the trance state brought on by intentional relaxation and focusing exercises. This deep hypnosis is often compared to the relaxed mental state between wakefulness and sleep.
In this mental state, people feel uninhibited and relaxed and they release all worries and doubts that normally occupy their mind. A similar experience occurs while you are daydreaming or watching the TV. You become so involved in the onscreen antics that worries and everyday cares fade away, until all you're focused on is the TV. In this state, you are also highly suggestible. That is why when a hypnotist tells you do something under trance; you'll probably embrace the idea completely. However, your sense of safety and morality remain entrenched throughout the experience and should either of these be threatened you immediately wake!
A hypnotist can not get you to do anything you don't want to do.
So while in such a state, when we are highly suggestible and open to new beliefs, a skillful hypnotist, whether in person or via a recording, can alter life-long behaviours and even give us new ones! personal development
