When Our Children Become Our Friends

Michelangelo once said that within every block of marble there is a great sculpture waiting to come out. I say the same about our children. When we receive them in the world, we don’t know what kind of beings they are and what their potential will be.

Nevertheless, we act as Michelangelo, for, inside every parent, there is a sculptor of children. We know there is a great sculpture coming out; we only need to shape our marble block. We do this by teaching our children what we believe is right, by passing onto them our values, by feeding them the foods we think are the best, by providing them with the best possible education, by showing them our religious/spiritual beliefs, by directing them to the best friendships, by encouraging them to pursue hobbies and activities we deem important, and so on. read more

Effectively Communicate With People Who Are Deaf

1. Levels of deafness vary, from 20dB (mild) hearing loss to 90dB (very profound) loss. Be aware that people who are hard of hearing may still be able to hear what you are saying, however the sound may seem quiet or distorted. As a result of this, they may have trouble in differentiating words that sound similar, but look the same. Examples of this are: ‘fifteen’ and ‘fifty’. If you find yourself agreeing a time, price or quantity – or any other piece of important information ensure that they repeat it back to you, and are clear in their understanding of the conversation. There may always be some misunderstanding in conversations, so to prevent negative feelings be understanding and patient. read more

How Learning Hypnosis Can Help Improve Your Own Subconscious Mind

Learning hypnosis is like learning how to play on someone else’s mind. It may not sound nice, but technically that’s the way it goes. Professionally, therapist must use hypnosis to provide treatment for their patients. Their professional conducts do not allow them to go beyond what is right and appropriate. In some cases though, there are individuals who use hypnosis for their own good at the expense of other people. That is not the way to go.

If you are not a professional therapist or psychologist, but you still want to learn hypnosis, you should first analyze your intention. If you simply want to gain control of your life by improving your subconscious mind, you can, and then go right ahead; hypnosis can effectively help you go get your objectives. However, if you want to take control of other people and the way they think, then that is not the right reason. read more

Be Grateful and Be Rich

It’s been a wonderful Canadian Thanksgiving and I’m elated to look out over hundreds of miles of red, orange and yellow forests. The trees inspire me as their leaves remind me of the cycle of life; their strong trunks remind me of the potential for growth when we’re grounded with deep roots; and the sheer number of them inspire me to notice the abundance that surrounds me when I really open my eyes to the fullness of nature.

We have a bounty to harvest, no matter where we live or what the season, but how much time do we spend feeling grateful versus focusing on what we don’t have? read more

Use Your Imagination Effectively

Using your imagination allows you to have creative and innovative ideas that no one else may have thought of. It is easy to focus on solutions that have already been tested and proven.

In so doing, you go beyond the boundaries of what is considered possible, and others can avail themselves of your creative and innovative ideas. Be imaginative and original and you will create new possibilities for others. read more
