It’s About Self-Confidence...
Self-confident people seem to have qualities that everyone admires, whether it is the quietly confident doctor giving us advice, or the charismatic confidence of an inspiring speaker. There is something about confident people that make us want to be in their circle, to be near them, and even to be more like them.

Self-confidence is extremely important in almost every aspect of our lives, yet so many people struggle to find it. Unfortunately, this can be a vicious circle. People who struggle with self-confidence can find it difficult to become successful, which makes finding that self-confidence even more difficult..


After all, most people are reluctant to stand behind a project that's being pitched by someone who ...

Ah, Winter...

Life naturally slows down in winter. The days grow shorter, light becomes scarce, and we respond by planting ourselves in front of the television or hiding under the covers to stay warm. The cold weather tends to keep us inside and out of the daylight. Even if we are regularly active, we are at the mercy of winter storms until springtime.


Everyone, from time to time, experiences an episode of the winter Blahs, and for many of us these “down times” seem to happen more often during the long winter months. This is such a common state, that there is a designated diagnosis of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), a type of depression that sets in during the shorter days of fall and winter and lasts until spring.

The Power of Fear


The power that we give to Fear never ceases to amaze me. We allow it to control our actions and reactions, and even to affect our entire lives. I was listening to the radio when it occurred to me that fear is just an idea that we made-up. Fear is just a concept. I was in my car, listening to an interview when, in response to a question about starting a new venture, the man said “I figured, if it wasn’t going to kill me or cause permanent bodily harm, what was there to lose really? So, we gave it a shot.”


That was a life-changing moment for me. If it wasn’t going to kill me or cause permanent bodily damage, why not give it a shot? In that moment, I understood that Fear was just a concept - a relative state of mind that we a...

The Power of Will...

“Such self-control!" Julie's friends exclaim when she declines a taste of the double chocolate truffle cheesecake. She enjoys the compliment until midnight -- when she sneaks downstairs and polishes off the last three slices.

"Just a few miles!" Becca tells herself as she puts on her sweats for a morning run. But instead she spends her exercise hour with a latte and muffin - and spends the rest of the day feeling guilty.

"This is my last cigarette!" announces Tom proudly, lighting up in the designated smoking area, at the far end of the parking lot - even though, as a graduate of three smoking-cessation courses, he knows that he can't trust his own words.

Nothing makes us feel worse about ourselves ...

Change Your Mind, Change Your Life!

My name is Karen Gray.I am a Registered Nurse, a Certified Hypnotist, and the Owner of Green Mountain Hypnosis. I first got interested in learning more about hypnosis when a friend of mine got certified as a hypnotist, and told me all about it.

At first, I was skeptical. As a Nurse, I worked in a world that consisted of science and evidence-based practice, and hypnosis seemed too far out of that field for me. But the more he told me about it, the more I realized that I had been using the fundamentals of hypnosis for years! As I was distracting patients from painful procedures by helping them to visualize a more pleasant experience, and assisting others to use their imaginations to reduce their pain, I was u...
