Mind over Matter

I recently heard on CBC’s Quirks and Quarks that a study in the USA has proved that your beliefs about yourself are as important as your biological disposition (DNA), in some peoples cases, more so !

To me this scientifically proves the success over hundreds of years, of the use of hypnosis to make personal change.

More recently professional athletes have used hypnosis to visualize themselves perfecting techniques, for example in golf.

The book “The Brain That Changes Itself” is filled with examples of folks who have used creative techniques to take advantage of the brains natural neuroplasticity, literally rewiring their minds !

When you work with a well trained and certified hypnotherapist, you can make changes in your life that become permanent !

Don’t dream it , BE IT !
