Healthy Through The Holidays

We spend millions of dollars each year related to maintaining our weight at a healthy level. An estimated 45 million Americans go on a diet each year. Americans spend $33 billion each year on weight loss products. Many do lose weight but only 5% will manage to keep it off. Many people look for a quick fix and an easy solution to their weight problem. 

Two-thirds of Americans remain overweight or obese. Obesity is a chronic disease that requires lifelong treatment.

From self-consciousness to physical limitations, many people feel that their size is keeping them from being the person they truly are. People who are overweight are also at higher risk for developing serious health problems, such as heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, stroke, arthritis, and gallbladder disease.

Is your body weight in the healthy range? 

People do not realize that for permanent weight loss, they need to change what is going on inside, mentally, emotionally and physically. It is not just about food and exercise. Many other things such as addictions, emotions, stress, relationships, self-love, worthiness, beliefs, fears, habits, associations to food, and comfort have an effect on our outcomes.  

We, together, will create new positive habits, behaviors, and feelings about those things necessary to lose weight and maintain it. You will learn through preparing through goals, changing your self-image, increasing your motivation, inspiring your self-love, and self-care that will guide you to your goal weight and live a more fulfilling and happy life.

Transition Your Life Through Transforming Your Handwriting

 Why would anyone be concerned about handwriting? It may be because our handwriting shows a distinctive individuality like a fingerprint. Most of us learn how to write at a young age in a fairly consistent manner by copying examples of letters and words. Many of these writing habits carry over to our adult years.

However, over the years, the knowledge of how to write becomes more subconscious, and we each develop unique nuances in our writing that differentiates one person’s handwriting from another’s. The way we write becomes quite difficult to disguise.

Many scientists believe that we are born with a given intelligence level and that, while it can be enhanced or diminished by our environment, we are basically born with that innate fixed IQ. Many people believe we are also born with innate aptitudes and with an innate temperament.

In addition, our identity is also fixed, which is why we can recognize our own handwriting from any other. For example, if I hid your writing.in a hundred samples of other people’s writing and asked you to find the one you wrote, no matter when you wrote the sample, no matter what the slant, size, or look of your particular you could pick· it out from the pile. That’s because, although your moods may change, part of your writing always stays the same, just as part of you always remains the same.

Join us and learn to characterize your own handwriting as well as understanding the handwriting of others through various points of analysis.

You will begin to identify samples using the following criteria: Line quality; Spacing of words and letters; Zones, Margins, Slants, and Pressure.

Are You Hypnotizing Yourself To Not Fulfill Your Potential?

Begin moving forward, get learning and start making positive changes in the world around you.

Starting a business is one of the most challenging and rewarding things you’ll ever do. The process is simpler than you might imagine, but to try to boil it down to five or 10 steps is an underestimation and an injustice. The following steps to start a business are, for the most part, necessary — though some businesses may be able to skip several steps, and others may be able to accomplish them completely out of order.

If you douse yourself only into the beliefs of another, you stop moving forward, stop learning, stop experiencing and stop making positive changes in the world around you. You will learn from my voyage regarding starting my own business.
* How fearful imprints created in the mind cause delay in action. 
* How the unfamiliar diminishes our effectiveness.
* How creating your own self-hypnosis increases your success

Can You Transition Your Life Through Transforming Your Handwriting?

When we make modifications to our handwriting, we are creating suggestions to ourselves to change our mindset. These suggestions can enhance our relationships, present us the catalyst to produce more or face our uncertainties with more certainty while introducing ourselves to the best within us.

When we are feeling loved, experiencing ill health or modifying the course of our life, our perspective transforms and one outcome is our handwriting patterns are transformed.

Among all the unique characteristics of a human being, handwriting carries the richest information to gain the insights into the physical, mental and emotional state of the writer.

Graphology is the art of studying and analyzing handwriting, a scientific method used to determine a person’s personality by evaluating various features from the handwriting. The prime features of handwriting such as the page margins, the slant of the alphabets, the baseline etc. can tell a lot about the individual. To make this method more efficient and reliable,


Handwriting also termed as brain-writing is a useful measure in identifying the characteristic personality traits of an individual. Handwriting analysts can examine an individual’s handwriting to predict the personality traits of the writer. Handwriting analysis can be used to examine personal traits of candidates during interviews accurately as the accuracy of an analyst highly depends on his skill set.

How to start to start your practice

What are you putting off right now?

Should you be getting on with starting your business? Writing business plan? Networking? Making a list of who can assist you? Or working on another project that is important to you? Are you saying to yourself ‘I will do it later. There’s plenty of time!’ But time has a nasty habit of running out, and might leave you scrabbling around to get it done at the last minute or even starting it.

Not doing it now means not doing it well

And when you leave things until the threat of a looming deadline terrifies you into action, you have to admit that the results of the last minute rush are rarely the best that you’re capable of. How could they be? When you are under a threat, your brain doesn’t work very well, and nor do your hands and fingers. It’s no wonder that you will often feel quite disappointed at the end of today, tomorrow and the next day.

The truth about motivation and procrastination

So why do we leave things to wait? Is there something lacking in our motivation? This is the most common explanation that people give, and you have probably thought it clarifies your own difficulty with getting the initiation of  your practice in a timely manner. But think about it for a moment; you will find that there are things that you ‘feel like’ doing, so it can’t be true that you just ‘lack motivation’.

The key does not lie in motivation as such, but improvisation. You do something when it feels important to get it done. This is quite different from knowing in your head what is important (like filing your tax return). It’s an emotional feeling. It’s our emotions which drive us into action.

Learn to use both your conscious and subconscious minds using emotions in getting things done

Understand how to use your unconscious and emotional programming including reprogramming it

Learn why self-hypnosis is a powerful tool for helping yourself to do it now


So “Do it now! and use the power of hypnosis to access unconscious processes and mold them in positive directions.

Breathe Sleep Live Seminar Series

07.07.2016 Workshop


Sleep is something almost all of us could use more of, but often we do not even know what is keeping us up at night.  If you attribute daytime sleepiness to a last night’s late movie, but have not had a good night’s sleep in quite some time, perhaps a sleep disorder is to blame.

Insomnia, also known as trouble falling asleep or staying asleep, often leaves sufferers feeling irritable and exhausted. Awakening too early in the morning is also considered a form of insomnia. The constant fatigue and decreased energy makes getting through the day difficult and often decreases the performance of both adults and children.

Join us as Dr. David Hopper discusses Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), a very serious condition that effects about one in every four people in the United States. Did you know it is as common as snoring, and snoring is a clear sign there is an obstruction in the airway. When your body lacks oxygen there is a reaction occur which can lead to many other health issues including obesity, hypertension, and diabetes just to name a few.

What is Hypnosis

Some patients request hypnosis or are referred for hypnotic treatment by another therapist. The latter occurs with increasing frequency as a clinician gains a reputation as a hypnotist. These patients almost invariably hold various attitudes and expectations about hypnosis, which makes them good candidates for hypnotic interventions. Many think hypnosis is a powerful procedure that will do the work for them, so little effort on their part is required. This, of course, is a setup for failure, and hypnotic treatment should not be started without first educating the patient about the real nature of hypnosis.

We will be discussing the power of our own thoughts and hypnosis
