Does Being a Grown-up Mean Maturity? 0

Does Being a Grown-up Mean Maturity?

Have you seen the 2016 English-language French-produced computer animated movie The Little Prince yet? – A Little Girl meets an eccentric old Aviator who tells her a fantastic tale about a young prince…

I enjoyed the movie, almost as much as the original classic tale. The new movie stays true to the original message of how fake we have built the world to be, and how tender our innocence is. That was moving.

Strange Terrain in the Endless Frontier of the Mind 2

Strange Terrain in the Endless Frontier of the Mind

My curiosity of the phenomenon of multiple personalities, “exorcism” and thought form release led me to this book. Ralph Allison, a psychiatrist starting practicing in 1972, a pioneer treating multiple personality disorder patients and a daring soul, wrote this quite interesting case history book. Can you imagine a middle class, crew-cut, straight, Board-certified psychiatrist conducts exorcism? He had the courage to stand up to his professional peers when they threatened to throw him off of a hospital staff because he dared use unconventional therapy techniques such as hypnosis, now a major instrument of cure for many persons with MPD.

Book Review: Love Has Forgotten No One 0

Book Review: Love Has Forgotten No One

You are perfect.

The world is perfect.

The ideas about you and the world may not be perfect.

Undo the ideas, and you see the perfection.

Extend your love into the world that isn’t there.

Freedom in Pain 0

Freedom in Pain

The sensation of pain is simply a signal to tell us some important information. Like a red light on a car dashboard telling us the fuel level is low. We can, of course, do something to disconnect the light signal so it stops, but that can be dangerous if the car is running on the road. When you fill in fuel, the signal automatically goes off.

An Advanced Self-Hypnosis Book 0

An Advanced Self-Hypnosis Book

Self-Hypnotism was the first hypnotism book I ever bought, during a library book sale some years ago. At that time, I didn’t know anything more than anyone else about hypnotism. I just saw the cover, intrigued by the title, and bought it, 25 cents. The book was published many years ago (first edition in 1964?) and the used book looked old. I started to read the first couple of chapters and that was it…

It was not until years later, after my inner hypnotist was fully awakened and I

Book Review: The Unquiet Dead 0

Book Review: The Unquiet Dead

I just finished reading Dr. Edith Fiore’s fascinating clinical case book The Unquiet Dead: A Psychologist Treats Spirit Possession, which was first published in 1987. The foreword is by Raymond A. Moody, Jr. M.D. This was really a frontier book of this kind, I mean, spirit depossession by a psychologist not a “psychic”! – It’s funny though, when I say a “psychologist not a psychic”, it feels as if it gives more credibility as there’s “science” component in it; but does it really? Dr. Fiore’s spirit depossession work was based on hypotism, up till today, a lot of people still think hypnotism makes no difference from woo-woo, not a real “science”.

Nevertheless, Edith Fiore does have a doctorate degree and that makes her more scientific than a lot of us.

The Secret of the Butterfly Lovers 1

The Secret of the Butterfly Lovers

Some strange force had me pick out this book from library shelf, or you may say, coincident. I finighed this fascinating book within a couple of days. Such a story of love, beauty, trust, faith, and amazement!

Hypnotism in “The Manchurian Candidate” 0

Hypnotism in “The Manchurian Candidate”

A client of mine recommended this movie “The Mancurian Candidate” when we were talking about that a lot of people get education on hypnotism from Hollywood. And I was told the remake in 2004 was not as good as the original one, so I found the original black and white movie.

Surprisingly, the brainwash and mind control in this movie is shockingly believable. The powerful conditioning of one’s mind and stealing of one’s soul turned the character of Raymond Shaw a man driven to do things he has no idea why.

Past Lives May Hold A Big Key for Your Current Life 0

Past Lives May Hold A Big Key for Your Current Life

Being a hypnotherapist myself, having read all major books on past life regressions, and having conducted many past life regressions myself, I still found this book “You Have Been Here Before” intriguing. It is an educational and a pleasant read.

Obsessed with Obsession 1

Obsessed with Obsession

This is a book review on “Ready Player One” by Ernest Cline. There is something spiritual about this book which makes the exciting story richer and more intriguing.

Without much pop culture in the 80’s in North America, I was not stopped from enjoying this book…

This fascinating book paints a beautiful picture of obsession.
