Mind sciences and philosophy revolve around the “fact” of the ego. Consequently we have accepted this “ego” as our personal identity.
But should we be accepting the ego without question? When we do, we accept all the lacks and limitations of its experience as our reality. We sell ourselves short through this unconscious act.
In this blog, I call the ego i. Let’s examine some common utterances of i:
- i am poor
- i am sick

Now, just supposing You were Conscious of Your True Identity, which is the embodiment of Infinite Abundance, Health and Love, could You (as I, Consciousness) be any of these things? Can Infinite Abundance be poor? Can Infinite Health be sick? Can Infinite Love be afraid?

What is hypnotherapy and what it’s not…
Hypnosis helps a person achieve a focused state of mind through encouraging the rational, critical mind to temporarily relax.

A little exercise to improve your state of mind…
Stand up, lift your hands up above your head and lean your head backwards for 5-10 seconds. This is all it takes to change your state of mind and it can also be used when you are angry, upset or disappointed. If you are in a crowded room, and you do not want to lift your hands above your head, do a mini version and just tilt your head backwards. //Marianne
