The Entertainment Side Of STAGE HYPNOSIS

There are basically two common aspects of hypnosis, the therapeutic approach and stage hypnosis, which is the entertainment side of hypnosis.

Although science may frown upon stage hypnosis for trying to make fun of the process for entertainment or for profit, it has, in some way helped, in easing public perception of what hypnosis is really all about.

As long as the stage hypnotist does not abuse the ability to explore the minds of his subjects, a practitioner who is responsible enough to respect and give justice to hypnosis can do more good than harm.


Many hypnotherapists believe that a lot of reputable stage hypnotists were responsible for conditioning the minds of people, of course not through actual hypnosis itself, to embrace hypnosis as a form of therapy or treatment for common behavioral problems of men like alcohol and substance addiction, especially smoking.

A lot of stage hypnosis acts commonly involve drunkards going through the stage act to emerge sober towards the end of the process, with some even undergoing altered states that will change their attitudes towards drinking.

Although the process of stage hypnosis itself is a bit disturbing at hindsight, the fact remains that the power of the mind can truly be harnessed.

The fact that some stage hypnosis entertainers continue to promote their trade is on the fact that stage hypnosis allows them to earn big bucks, still, people cannot judge them based on what they do.

As mentioned before, there are stage hypnosis entertainers who continue to give justice to the practice of hypnosis.

Whether it be for entertainment or therapy, stage hypnosis is as equally effective as it is used for therapy.

Many experts and stage hypnotists agree that training for entertainment needs no formal education required, as well as learning all of the applied techniques and approaches to stage hypnosis.

The same fact holds true for stage hypnosis, that 10% of the population are likely to submit to hypnosis since not everyone is susceptible to such.

Stage hypnosis allows an entertainer to be more creative and imaginative, the reason why it has continued to captivate audiences time and again.

A stage hypnotist must remain true to some commitments that need to be strictly adhered to, which is responsibility, accountability, integrity, honesty and respect confidentiality since a stage hypnotist will be responsible for exploring the mind of a subject.

A stage hypnotist must also never try to make fun of subjects during the stage act.

Although entertainment is key, it must never take advantage of a subject that is in a hypnotic state, since it is expected that the stage hypnotist should basically focus on the fact that the basic aim of stage hypnosis for entertainment is to exhibit the capabilities of hypnosis and what it can do to benefit humankind.

If one is interested to try out stage hypnosis, he or she must carefully consider the amount of responsibility that comes along with it and the initial approach is to study the basics of hypnotism, especially with all recommended techniques and processes.

This should then be followed by a great deal of practice, concentration, and experimentation, until such time the candidate is confident enough to perform in front of a group of people.

So try and make the most of the entertainment side of stage hypnosis and you can be on your way to having a great time with hypnosis.

When changing your lifestyle you’ll probably have to make decisions that will be hard, yet you can do it if you think about yourself and not others.

Aging for most of us is not something we are looking forward to. Life can go on for many years. In view of the fact, we all need to learn how to relax and take care of ourselves so we can see a brighter future.

We all need to make our life simple. Keeping it simple will help reduce stress. Sometimes we have to give up our long-year running homes where our children were raised. As one ages the stress of preserving, our home increases. Money usually becomes a big issue, which causes stress. The maintenance and taxes alone are very stressful for someone that is living on social security these days.

How to decide:
Do you plan to stay in the same area you live in now? Do you prefer to live in a better climate? The questions demand an answer before mortgaging your home.

If you are living a fixed-income, consider the low-cost housing projects.

In your community, you may find housing projects for seniors. If you want to cut back your expenses without moving to another climate, consider these options. You will find housing for seniors however in other areas in the event you choose to move. Many housing projects for the seniors will provide you with links. The links are for your convenience, which includes free meals, cheap transportation and so on. At the buildings, you will likely meet new friends, which makes life more purposeful and fulfilling.  Once you’ve decided where you are going to relocate it takes the burden off your mind.


 Don’t get me wrong there will always be some stress in your life that you will not have control of.  Now that you’ve made one of the biggest decision about where you going to live, start thinking about enjoying life. Join an exercise group or get some neighbors to join you for a walk. Walk on sunny days so your body gets natural vitamin D from the sun rays. The vitamins will help keep your bones strong. Exercising helps keep us fit and is a good way to meet new people while having fun.

Your family healthcare provider can help you with this too. The world is filled with various lifestyles, so make your life your own by staying healthy and avoid sweating the small stuff. Making sound decisions is a great start to living free, which promotes healthy aging.

Is There Self Test For DIABETES?

Diabetes Testing Strips

Sixteen million Americans have diabetes, yet many are not aware of it. African Americans, Hispanics and Native Americans have a higher rate of developing diabetes during their lifetime. Diabetes has potential long-term complications that can affect the kidneys, eyes, heart, blood vessels and nerves. A number of pages on this website are devoted to the prevention and treatment of the complications of diabetes.

In diagnosing diabetes, physicians primarily depend upon the results of specific glucose tests. However, test results are just part of the information that goes into the diagnosis of diabetes. Doctors also take into account your physical exam, presence or absence of symptoms, and medical history. Some people who are significantly ill will have transient problems with elevated blood sugars which will then return to normal after the illness has resolved. Also, some medications may alter your blood glucose levels (most commonly steroids and certain diuretics (water pills)).

The TWO main tests used to measure the presence of blood sugar problems are:
1. Direct measurement of glucose levels in the blood during an overnight fast
2. Measurement of the body's ability to appropriately handle the excess sugar presented after drinking a high glucose drink.
Self Testing Methods
Regular self-testing of your blood sugar tells you how well your combination of diet, exercise, and medication are working. Tests are usually done before meals and at bedtime. More frequent testing may be needed when you are sick or under stress.

A device called a Glucometer can provide an exact blood sugar reading. There are different types of devices. Usually, you prick your finger with a small needle called a lancet, which gives you a tiny drop of blood. You place the blood on a test strip and put the strip into the device. Results are available within 30 to 45 seconds.

A health care provider or diabetes educator will help set up an appropriate testing schedule for you. You will also be taught how to respond to different ranges of glucose values obtained when you self-test.

The results of the test can be used to adjust meals, activity, or medications to keep blood sugar levels in an appropriate range. Testing provides valuable information for the healthcare provider and identifies high and low blood sugar levels before serious problems develop. Accurate record keeping of test results will help you and your healthcare provide plan how to best control your diabetes. There are 20.8 million children and adults in the US with diabetes, and nearly one-third of them (or 6.2 million people) do not know it!

Concepts Behind FENG SHUI

Feng Shui is more than just rearranging furniture, it’s a lifestyle. And lifestyles involve mindsets or concepts that are prevalent. Feng Shui experts just say no to some things without reason. Most of the things they do come with a line of reasoning that may not necessarily be embraced by many people.

Nonetheless, it is still a point of view that among other things, require careful consideration and thought. So what are the thoughts that prevail on the onset of Feng Shui? Here are just some of these prevalent concepts that a Feng Shui enthusiast or researcher may find useful.

Sense of Balance

The number one thing that Feng Shui promotes is a balance. This balance comes in many forms, in the color arrangement, in the spatial factors up to the numbers that concern your working space or environment. The balance is more promoted by the five Earth elements of Feng Shui and the bagua, which is designed symmetrically and with complete reference to the different elements of the earth by Feng Shui standards. The standards of Feng Shui is made customized in every person, but it all boils down to having the right sets of things that complement and balance each other out.

Sense of Positivity

A sense of positivity is also what Feng Shui promotes. Positive energy is the thing most sought after by people who try to get the services of Feng Shui consultants. This positivism needs to be maintained. Conversely, it wards off all the forms of negative energy that may come in a given space. This is why there are charms that help cure the bad luck in a given place, especially those which have been established without the guidance of Feng Shui.

A Natural Inclination for Beauty and the things that Promote It

Beauty in symmetry and symmetry in beauty is one of the core concepts of Feng Shui. It appeals to the physically inviting and also adheres to fighting for beauty and balance in things. Feng Shui, in some ways, is a celebration of beauty in design and other physical elements of the space being designed.

Love for Your Environment

Feng Shui promotes the careful consideration of the environment before establishing places. Good Feng Shui respects the elements of the earth and makes the Feng Shui enthusiast more mindful of their surroundings. They don’t just work instantly in any oppressive place but strive to remove any existing negativities in the environment.

Love for Self

The love for self is also promoted by Feng Shui. You will detect energy based on what generally feels good to you. Love for self-involved not subjecting yourself to oppressive places or harboring negative energies that can be counter-productive to your different activities.

Dreaming big and making the environment jive with that dream

Finally, Feng Shui is more anchored on the greater scheme of things. When you have a dream and you intend to fulfill it in numerous ways, the best way to start is to have an environment that embraces those dreams. If you dream big and work hard, but your environment cancels all the things that you are striving for, it will be a very difficult task for you.

Feng Shui ensures that there is alignment between the things you want and the things that are manifested in the objects you see every day.

Taking Your Medicine Naturally: CHINESE FOOD Therapy

Untitled
Photo  by Smithsonian Institution
You go into your kitchen after a long day’s work and open the refrigerator.  The availability of food isn’t looking good for you again.  It’s either leftover pizza or another microwave meal.  You find the fastest and easiest solution so that you can continue with your day and not let the food stop you from getting what you need to do. 

According to Chinese medicine, this can be one of the major causes of illness.  Not eating balanced and properly can lead to a stop in the right energy flow in your body, causing your body to not have the ability to process its nutritional needs correctly.  The alternative that is suggested is Chinese food therapy, where there is a balance between the food that you eat and the nutrition that you get. 

The philosophy behind Chinese food therapy is that everything must be balanced.  This begins by discovering the polar opposites of foods that are available and combining them for a middle ground.  Yin and yang are the philosophy that is used for foods, giving the best combination of elements for health.  Yang is known to increase body heat, which will raise the metabolism to process nutrients.  Yin then combines with this to decrease the body heat, which will balance the nutrients that are being processed in the metabolism.  

In order for Chinese food therapy to work properly, there has to be an understanding of how your body reacts to specific things.  If you are completely balanced, too much of either yin or yang will cause a reaction by your body, allowing you to stay balanced.  Everything that your body does, when using Chinese food therapy, will be communicating to you how to use your food and balance it out properly.  

If your body is imbalanced, you can use some foods in order to use the Chinese food therapy correctly.  For example, some foods may cause your energy to be lower.  You can use the roots of foods in order to increase this, which are directly linked to the Yang foods.  Ginseng is one popular example that will help to increase circulation and the metabolism.  This is one of several examples that can help you to heal and balance naturally.  

Next time you are ready to eat your meal, make sure that you have both Yin and Yang in combination with each other.  Over time, you will notice that the balance of your energy, as well as the various effects of the food, makes a difference in how you function.  Using Chinese food therapy as a method of health is one of the easiest ways to help to chew your health.
