Did You Know?

A 20-Minute Coffee Nap Makes You More Alert:

Drink a cup of caffeinated coffee–it takes about 20 minutes for caffeine to affect your brain. Then immediately take a nap or rest calmly if you can’t fall asleep. The combination of brief rest and the caffeine in coffee makes you more alert when you get up. (Bottom Line, October 2015)


Coffee Reduces Stroke Risk

Recent finding - drinking one or more cups of coffee daily was associated with a 22% to 25% reduction in stroke risk. Theory: coffee beans contain antioxidants and other disease-fighting chemicals that reduce inflammation and improve insulin activity. Moderate coffee consumption has also been linked to decreased risk for diabetes, colon cancer, heart disease, liver disease, and Parkinson’s disease. (Institute of Environmental Medicine, Stockholm Sweden)


Coffee’s Many Uses:

Neutralizes odor - Ground coffee absorbs moisture and replaces an offending order with the smell of coffee. Hang a cheesecloth pouch filled with cooled used coffee grounds in a cabinet where garbage is kept.

Stress buster - Inhaling the scent of roasted coffee beans eases stress and produces a natural relaxation response. 

Skin exfoliate - Mix one cup of ground coffee, ½ cup of sugar, and one ½ tablespoon of jojoba oil.  Apply the mixture to your body, and gently rub in a circular motion; rinse and pat dry. (Bottom Line)


Caffeine May Make You More Easily Persuaded: 

A recent study showed that students were more likely to change their opinions about controversial topics when they were drinking coffee than when they were drinking orange juice. Possible reason: drinking caffeine increases people’s emotional arousal or improves their mood, making them more likely to agree with a different opinion. Watch out coffee drinkers! (European Journal of Social Psychology)

Inspirational Quotes

“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” ~Anne Frank


"When one door closes, another opens; but we often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door that we do not see the one which has opened for us." ~Helen Keller


“Memory is the power to gather roses in the winter…Listen to your inner voice, and trust your intuition.”


“I’ve been using EFT in my practice as a psychologist at Kaiser, as well as “on the outside” in a small part-time practice. I am combining both hypnosis with energy psychology techniques you taught in the training, and find that the changes in my patients are rapid and permanent. Thank you for offering such a comprehensive training along with your thorough and well-informative training manual.” ~F. Lombardo, PhD


“In my estimation, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT) is one of the most powerful treatment tools available. I have successfully helped people overcome fears, phobias, depression, and addictions. It is rapid, dramatic, and deep.” ~Fred Gallo, PhD, author of "Energy Psychology"

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone,

“Wherever you go…there you are. Become one with your journey of magnificence.”

So many people come to me in search of finding themselves without knowing what (or who) they are actually looking for.


One of the greatest personal challenges people face is the struggle to accept, embrace, and love oneself even with all of their imperfections. We need to stop discrediting ourselves for everything we aren’t, and start acknowledging ourselves for everything we are.


Our mission is not just about discovering self-love, but about breaking down the walls we have built against it. When we have the courage to push through these walls–to know and embrace ourselves despite our humanness and flaws–we open the door to connecting in more caring, empathic, and intimate ways with others who are truly worth loving.


Here are a couple of tools that will enhance your journey into your magnificence:


·    - Focus on writing your story instead of reading, watching, and hearing about everyone else’s. If you catch yourself comparing your life to someone else, remember that people often only showcase their highlight reel (especially online), not their reality.

·      - Pay close attention to your life as you live it. One of the greatest gifts you can give yourself and your loved ones is to be in the present moment and appreciate yourself and your life with love and gratitude. 


~ Learn to become your own best friend ~

Upcoming Certification Training:      Energy Psychology

3 weekends: Saturdays and Sundays from 9:00am - 6:00pm


March 19, 20, April 2, 3, 9 & 10


Learn powerful energy therapy techniques and applications designed to create permanent changes in your life and in the lives of others. These techniques help to eliminate anxieties, fears, self-sabotage programming, past traumas, and limiting beliefs.


Energy Therapies address the same energy system as acupuncture or acupressure by using simple tapping procedures. These therapies aim to release negative emotions caused by a disruption in the body’s energy system. Energy therapies are a group of mindful and natural modalities that help to facilitate profound positive changes.


This comprehensive course in Energy Psychology provides experiential training and hands-on demonstrations. You will also learn to use your body’s own feedback to balance the body’s energy system by creating rapid and powerful change. This training is also beneficial for alternative and mental health professionals as well as anyone in quest of personal self-growth.

Fire Walking Event and Workshop

The Fire Walking Event and Workshop was a great success and was enjoyed by all! I want to thank Andrew Utley and Tim Steele for joining me as presenters on “Manifesting 2016 ~ The Best Year Yet!” They inspired and motivated the attendees to create excitement around their goals for this year as well as create powerful breakthroughs.


Another special thank you goes out to Julian Bergquist for making the fire walk possible. The experience created powerful moments in helping make us unstoppablerealizing that it is possible to do things that once seemed impossible.


Julian lighting the fire!


Watching the start of the burn.


The fire, Tim, Marla, & Andrew.

In Memory of a Great Colleague -     Conrad Adams

The hypnosis community, both in the US and internationally, lost a wonderful colleague and friend. Conrad Adams had a hypnotherapy institute in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and was a great hypnotherapist and mentor to many. 


Conrad was on our Board of Directors and was a great source of information and wisdom. He was known for his kindness and desire to help others.  


Conrad, you will be missed by many.  Rest in peace my Dear Friend
