Lastnight I posted on the other site about self-hypnosis as a means of healing but couldn't get back on there to reply, that today I read a prediction that said, "This is a good time to train your own healing abilities as your sensitivity is high and you are more capable than usual of tuning into the healing energies."......Weird!

Take care,

Sometimes there just are strange things that happen that we can't understand.


Then there's also what most of us experience...just those little things that we attribute to coincedence--we are thinking of someone and sure enough--they call.


Talk again soon

Hi Barefut,


I taught myself self-hypnosis decades ago (from reading books about it), in order to hopefully improve my healing and reduce my pain level after a major surgery. I am very glad I learned it, as it is a skill that I can draw on whenever I need, and I only needed medication the first day after surgery, at the point when I was too spacey to fight off the hypodermic needle nurse.


Although it seems to be an "alternative therapy", there is a lot of mainstream research to bolster some of the claims made for it. There is an interesting review of hypnosis research by the Mayo Clinic


I'd highly recommend it for many purposes, but of course to understand its limits, like anything else. If you think of it, we are continually hypnotizing ourselves (or letting media hypnotize us) every time we concentrate intensely or repeat a thought over and over. And today hypnosis is a lot more than just clucking like a chicken on a traveling stage show!

Warm Hugs,
