Preparing For Old Age (Part 1 of 4)

Preparing For Old Age

An old story

Preparing for old age is a lifetime job. Socrates was once asked by a pupil, this question: “What kind of people shall we be when we reach Elysium?”

And the answer was this: “We shall be the same kind of people that we were here.”

If there is a life after this, we are preparing for it now. Just as I am today preparing for my life tomorrow.

Man of tomorrow

What kind of a man shall I be tomorrow? Oh, about the same kind of a man that I am now. The kind of a man that I shall be next month depends upon the kind of a man that I have been this month.

If I am miserable today, it is not within the round of probabilities that I shall be supremely happy tomorrow. Heaven is a habit. And if we are going to Heaven we would better be getting used to it.

Life is a preparation for the future; and the best preparation for the future is to live as if there were none. We are preparing all the time for old age. The two things that make old age beautiful are resignation and a just consideration for the rights of others.

Ivan the Terrible

In the play of Ivan the Terrible, the interest centers around one man, the Czar Ivan. If anybody but Richard Mansfield played the part, there would be nothing in it. We simply get a glimpse into the life of a tyrant.

The tyrant who has run the full gamut of goosedom, grumpiness, selfishness and grouch. Incidentally this man had the power to put other men to death. And this he does and has done as his whim and temper might dictate.

He has been vindictive, cruel, quarrelsome, tyrannical and terrible. Now that he feels the approach of death, he would make his peace with God. But he has delayed that matter too long. He didn’t realize in youth and middle life that he was then preparing for old age.

You can use hypnosis for making changes in just about every area of your life

Utilizing it to heal your body, mind, and spirit. Hypnotists are now finding that its uses are almost endless! I remember watching a television program featuring the UK hypnotist Paul McKenna, called “I Can Change Your Life“.

He hypnotized a man diagnosed with a form of hysterical blindness. The man’s doctors believed a psychological trauma had caused the man’s blindness and that his eyesight should be working perfectly.

After a few sessions with Mr McKenna the man’s sight began to return. He was able to function more productively than before. This is the fascinating bit, before the program finish the production, the man was sent to an eyesight specialist.

They discover that their diagnosis is wrong. In fact there had been substantial damage done to his visual equipment! As far as medical science is concern, this man should not be able to see anything.

But yet, through hypnosis his sight was dramatically improved. Why? Because both the hypnotist and the subject believe that it is possible!

What do you think hypnosis can do for YOU?

Here’s a small example of what hypnosis can be used for. This list could fill a book but I have included these to give you some indication of how you could use it to benefit your life.

Aid In relaxation
Weight Loss
Smoking Cessation
Improve Sleep
Pain Management
Eliminate Fears & Phobias
Alleviate Depression
Reduce Anxiety & Stress

Create More Success
Improve Your Self Confidence
Past Life Regression
Improve Your Memory
Improve Your Sports Performance

Release Issues From The Past
Healing Of Skin Conditions

It would appear that the only limitations of hypnosis are those you place on it! Try it you might just like it.

Do you watch a great movie and totally identify with the characters or got lose in the plot that it is all you are focus on? If you can answer yes any of the aforementioned questions, and everyone can, then you have already experienced the state of trance.

Just entering a hypnotic trance can be very therapeutic

Your body and mind relax and ease tension throughout your whole system. The real power comes from the suggestions and images that are used in this state.

Such suggestions can easily, quickly and permanently alter your behavior and your dominant thinking about any subject you choose. Through suggestion a hypnotist will, mostly, guide you into a mental rehearsal of the new behaviors.

New feelings are also anchored to old memories or a visualized future event. It is so in order to retrain your mind and body to respond to certain situations differently.

So are YOU hypnotizable?

Well, research shows that the best hypnotic subjects are those people who can easily immerse themselves in any imagined event. This is a skill that many people in the self improvement field strive very hard to acquire.

Hypnotic subjects who can easily enter the deepest, conscious altering, states of trance are those than can easily become absorbed in a fantasy while blocking out their external surroundings.

This basically means the better your imaginative abilities the more profoundly you will experience the hypnotic state.

However, as I have already stated, everyone can be hypnotized and you are no exception! Under the correct conditions you most definitely can and will enter a state of trance.

With the right stimuli you can then use this state as catalyst for change in your life. It is possible to remove unwanted behaviors, instill new ones and even program yourself with characteristics and personality traits that you desire.

Dream Big (Part 3 of 3)

Dream big!! Read the previous articles:

Dream Big (Part 1 of 3)

Dream Big (Part 2 of 3)

 

Continuation:

 

If you want to dream yourself into the perfect relationship, don’t worry that you are currently single. You are imagining, dreaming, visioning. Let go of constraints, fears doubts. Let go of limiting beliefs. Have fun. Play!

If you’re stuck, some questions to ask about your life five years from now are: Where am I living? What is my vocation? Am I married? Do I have children? What kind of car do I drive? How is my health like? What do I do for fun? Where do I travel?

If you have trouble letting go of the doubts try feeling your dream

In five-years, how do you feel when you wake up in the morning? How do you feel when you are working, playing, traveling. As you feel into your life, you may begin to get glimpses of what this ideal life looks like.

If so, let yourself drift deeper into those glimpses. Let yourself explore the scenes that are lit up in your imagination.

Another trick you can try is to imagine someone else’s ideal life

You can dream an ideal life for your spouse, or child, or a good friend. You can also try creating the ideal life for a fictional person. Become the author of this character’s life. Make it a really juicy life!

What would their dream life look like 5- years from now? It’s likely that parts of the life you create for them are what you would like to have in your own.

Still having trouble dreaming?

Here are some other ideas: Make a dream life collage. Ask a good friend to brainstorm your ideal life with you.

Take some time to write down your five-year dream. Keep the description out and visible so you can add to it, change it, allow it to grow and morph as you settle more fully into your ability to dream big. But keep your dream to yourself, at least in the beginning.

As you start to dream again, your dreams and your ability to dream are fragile. They need to be nurtured and protected. There are very few people that know how to treat dreams.

So if you must share them, make sure you do so with someone that you trust will treat your dreams and you with tenderness and love.

Next time we’ll look at what you can do once you have some big dreams. Until then, dream on!

Dream Big (Part 2 of 3)

Dream big!! And do not miss out the previous article:

Dream Big (Part 1 of 3)

 

Continuation:

 

If your body reacts with anxiety or fear. Fast heart-rate, shallow breathing, tightness in the chest or solar plexus, etc. You may have discovered a limiting belief that has been hidden within you.

I don’t have enough money.
I don’t have enough education.
I’m not smart enough.
I don’t have the credentials.
It will never pay the bills.
It’s never been done before so it probably can’t be done.
It’s greedy, or selfish.
People think I’m crazy.
It’s too risky.
It’s not spiritual enough.
I don’t have any extra time.
Some people might be hurt if I do it.
I might mess it up, or do it wrong.

This is just a small sampling of the limiting beliefs available for our use. There are hundreds of them, and thousands of variations. Whatever they sound like, form they take, specific words they use, limiting beliefs have but one purpose and that is to keep you small, to prevent you from dreaming big.

We’ll look more at limiting beliefs in future issues but for at least the next few minutes. But hopefully longer than that! I’m going to encourage you to let go of those beliefs. Allow yourself to imagine the biggest dream you possibly can.

Let go of all the “yeah buts”

Let yourself drift back to that uninhibited dreaming space you had as a child. We’re not concerned about whether or not these dreams ever come true. Right now we just want to rekindle the dreaming ability.

Take a moment now and enter your dream-world to imagine your life in 5-years? Let go of the rationalizations. Remember, you’re dreaming, tapping into your imagination, creating a vision of your ideal life.

So if you want to dream yourself into a vacation home in Hawaii, don’t worry about how much it will cost or where the money will come from. If you want to dream yourself into a new career, don’t worry about your lack of education, or your age, or an economic downturn.
