I am a family physician who graduated in medicine from the University of Queensland in 1966- retired from General Practice in 2021. As a clincal hypnotherapist, I try to give you insight into your mind so you can help yourself. Please hear.
Understanding the Ego and Suicides
Do you know that your ego, which you identify as I or self, is the most incredible survivor and confidence trickster in mind? To the ego, death is an anathema. So much so that we have created various beliefs and philosophies to comfort us and think that there is life after death. Yet we see people committing suicide. How is it that this ego, the great survivor suddenly turns around and goes on a path of self-destruction? The answer lies in understanding how our perceptions and thinking process influence our subconscious mind.
Do you know that there is so much wisdom and knowledge in the world today that if we applied it in our daily life, we could solve all our problems in no time? But this knowledge is scattered and not integrated. You have to search for truth to find your way around.
Immortality, Fantasy and Reality
Do you know that human beings are delusive thinkers? We do not realise that we live in a hypnotic world. Our thinking process is hypnotic. The words we use in our minds have a conditioned response in the subconscious mind. The meaning of the words does not matter, but they generate real feelings. The subconscious mind is like a piano, and the words we use are the keys on the piano keyboard. They produce a specific sound. Twenty-four hours a day, we play a tune on this keyboard, and most people have no idea how their mind works.
Mental Illness–A Disorder of Perception
Do you think the world is going crazy or going mad? If you do, then you are not the only one who thinks this way. Most people feel they are living in a world of confusion and chaos. If you look around you, that is the reality you will see. But what you see is the reflection of the individual's mind.
The Ego and The Paradox of Time
Do you know that the time dimension, as you know by the clock, is man-made? We should be all interested in time because we use time in mathematics and science. We measure time in seconds, minutes, hours, days and years. Also, we calculate distances in time, light years away and eons etc. Time is used for cooking, travelling, growing and achieving things. Everything we do has a time attached to it – even our bodies age with time. There is time to be born and time to die for all of us. Time consumes our thinking and our whole being. There is a saying, "Time and tide wait for no man". Our perception of time traps us in time from the moment we are born and from which there is no apparent escape. With time there is a past, present and future, and there is always a beginning and an end.
Hypnosis and Self-Knowledge
Most people do not understand hypnosis. Many think they cannot be hypnotised, and many believe someone hypnotises them. What they know about hypnosis is mostly from watching hypnosis performed on stage or TV. So they have the wrong idea about hypnosis and what it does to the individual. Here I am going to try to dispel this misconception and help you understand the magic inside you.
MEDITATION – A Pathway to Self-Discovery
Most people have the wrong concept of meditation. They think you must sit like a Yogi on a mountain top or in a quiet place and adopt a specific position or posture to meditate. I will show you how easy it is to meditate anywhere and anytime. You can be at work, at home or driving in your car. You will benefit instantly from this exercise and wonder why you did not learn it before.
The Modus operandi of The Ego
Do you know who the greatest con artist in the world is? It is your ego, the thinker in your mind. Here I will try to expose the ego's modus operandi to help you understand your mind. If you are a true scientist, please try to disprove in your mind what I write and see if I am wrong.
