— and as usual, a few of my favorite quotes:
“The belief in a supernatural source of evil is not necessary.
Men alone are quite capable
of every wickedness.”
~ Joseph Conrad
"When you look long into an abyss, the abyss looks into you.”
“Don’t bother just to be better
than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better
“Imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited; imagination encircles the world.”
“Birds sing after a storm; why shouldn’t people feel as free to delight in whatever sunlight
remains to them?”
~ Rose Kennedy
“A belief is not merely an idea the mind possesses; it is an idea that possesses the mind.”
~ Robert Oxton Bolt
“The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone.”
~ Harriet Beecher
“What we do for ourselves dies with us. What we do for others and the world remains and is immortal.”
~ Albert Pine
“It has been said, ‘time heals all wounds.’ I do not agree. The wounds remain. In time, the mind, protecting its sanity, covers them with scar tissue and the pain lessens. But it is never gone.”
~ Rose Kennedy
“Some of the best lessons are learned from past mistakes.
The error of the past is the
wisdom of the future.”
~ Dale Turner
“In order to learn the important lessons in life, one must, each day, surmount a fear.”
~ Ralph Waldo Emerson
Welcome to the April newsletter. I hope it finds you all doing well.
We are living through difficult times and have been for several years now. Here in the U.S. it is tax season and a time when money can be a serious issue. We are also now a few months past the holidays and maybe you made some resolutions that you now realize you have forgotten about. That can be discouraging and if you let it get the best of you, it can lead to depression. If we allow depression to take control, it becomes almost impossible to see the good in anything or the possibilities that are out there waiting for each of us. I know what it is like not to be able to see anything positive.
There was a time several years ago when I lost everything I owned, almost lost myself in the process. To this day, I’m not sure exactly how I dragged myself out of that situation, but I did. I believe my kids were a big part of it. I just knew I had to keep going and I did. I gave myself a new beginning and that’s why I called my practice New Beginnings. You see, New Beginnings was also a big part of what got me out of the depression and hopelessness I had fallen into.
And, the truth is, a new beginning can be had by anybody any time Spring, Summer, Winter or Fall. Anytime can be the ideal time for New Beginnings and it is so important that you believe you are entitled to a new beginning any time you realize you want and need one. That is what New Beginnings is all about.
Do you know what the darkest hour of the
night is? Turns out it is the hour just before the dawn. The darkest hour of the night really is just before the dawn starts. Dawns, however, are funny things. They begin almost imperceptibly. At first, you really can't be sure whether it is happening or not. Then, as the dawn progresses, we start to see scary shadows in the half-light. Sometimes, we even notice things that we were blissfully ignorant of before. But as the sun rises and light washes over everything bringing a clear view, the scary shadows can and will disappear.
Even if you are in the middle of your own personal “darkest hour”, remember if you are starting to feel more anxious, confused or fearful, you do not need to. Using your subconscious you can reduce anxiety, apprehension and fear, you can gain clarity, build confidence and remove the fear by creating a powerful, detailed imprint of what you desire, need or want. Studies have shown that by practicing repeatedly short intervals of visualization, you are actually training your mind, preparing yourself so that you know what it looks like and what it feels like to have the life you are striving for. Using that same visualization you can train your mind to recognize the opportunities offered to you, see the right path, feel the right situations and get a very clear and strong image of yourself having reached your goal.
Over the years and especially since I’ve been working as a hypnotherapist, I’ve come to observe how frequently people readily relinquish the control over their future to someone other than themselves and so frequently to someone they don’t even respect or admire. Remember, that it is our perception of any incident, occurrence, activity or situation that determines whether we are happy or sad, have feelings of joy or hopelessness, think we are making progress or stagnating; and since it is our perception, you have the power to change it at any moment.
This ability may very well be the most powerful tool that each of us has at our disposal to shape and guide our present as well as our future; but sometimes it seems as if maybe we are just afraid to use this tool, to take control and change the direction of our life. Perhaps it is easier to place the blame for the negativity in our lives on someone else thereby abdicating any personal responsibility whatsoever.
If you want to do some Spring Cleaning, if you want a New Beginning, why not take control of your thoughts; take responsibility for your thoughts and your actions. Guide them, mold them and do it over and over again. It does make a difference. You will feel stronger, happier and soon you will realize that you have taken back control of your own life.
Once you have taken back the control, then the real fun can start, realizing all the possibilities available to you, all the directions you can go in and finally realizing that life is indeed a journey and so much more than just a destination. A journey that you can control with a bit of trust in yourself and in your subconscious.
Trust that the Universe has does and will continue to offer you what you need, want and desire. Look at that job offer that comes out of the blue, go to that party you’ve just been invited to, get together with that friend you’ve been hoping would call and they did. Take a look at the business opportunity that just fell into your lap. Trust that perhaps the time is just perfect.
Yes, you can have it all, if you can surmount fear and start to trust and believe that you can!
As Abraham Lincoln once said, “— in the end it's not the years in your life that count. It's the life in your years.” So live your life fully, with clarity, confidence and trust, all of your life, not just one small part of it!

HEALTH TIPS — a bit different than usual, but good to know
The last time many of us wrote in a diary about our love lives, we were probably wearing braces or agonizing over acne. Well, blow off the dust and crack that lock.
Seems it may help cement your bond with your partner if you write down your deepest thoughts about your relationship. In one study, couples who did so were more likely to be together months later compared to the couples who were told to just write about anything. The pairs who wrote about their relationships also had more positive things to say to each other.
Writing about your emotions can help produce clarity and calm, not just in your relationship, but in other aspects of your life as well.
Write down your deepest thoughts about your career, your family, your pets, your dreams for the future — anything. The simple act of focusing for a few minutes on those important things in your life may help you feel more enthusiastic or positive about them.
Even if journaling doesn't make your love life or your career the epitome of perfection, there are other very real health benefits.
It can lower stress, lift depression, boost immunity, and cut down on trips to the doctor.
When you see a look of panic cross a loved one's face, offer something that will have an immediate impact — your hand. .
Perhaps it's instinct to do that anyway. But now there's hand-holding data to back it up. In a recent study, the touch of a loved one had real power in times of crisis. Brain scans of people under duress revealed that threat-related brain activity diminished when a loved one grabbed their hands.
That tummy ache? Must be stomach cancer. That headache? A brain tumor. Forgetting things? Uh oh, Alzheimer's.
Who hasn't overreacted to utterly common problems? But some people are especially prone to health fears. One antidote? Exercise. Sweaty workouts shrink health worries. You shouldn’t ignore persistent or sudden symptoms, of course. But if rationally you know you're fine, yet you just can't let go of nagging fears, go for a jog, swim, or hike.
Get this: If you think the years ahead will be better than the years behind, they will be.
But if you expect your health to decline with age, you may actually encourage that to happen. How? By taking a why-bother attitude, especially about staying fit. Instead, buck the odds and stay active, no matter how old you are, 39, 59, or even 99 — an age you should aim to reach.
