Did You Know?
Cool Down from the
Hot Days of Summer: An easy way to cool your body down on a hot summer day is
to dab a cotton ball with rubbing alcohol and a drop or two of pure peppermint
essential oil. Then rub on neck and wrists.
Bugs Be Gone: Forget expensive bug zappers and pesticides.
Hang a fabric softener sheet adjacent to (but not touching) outdoor light
fixtures to keep flying insects (like mosquitoes and moths) away. They hate the
scent generated when the softener sheets are heated, yet you can enjoy their
soft gentle fragrance.
Get Rid of Weeds: Most weeds can be
destroyed with an inexpensive and eco- friendly spray made from one gallon of
white distilled vinegar mixed with one ounce of liquid dish soap. Spray this on
the weeds and watch them shrivel up.
three tablespoons of distilled vinegar, ½ cup of baking soda, and three
tablespoons of liquid dishwashing soap (Dove preferred). Mix it all together in a spray container and
spray on the plants. You’ll be amazed and the plants will love you.
Sunburns: Oops, you were out in the sun too long. Ease the burn with lavender spray. It’s a
perfect antiseptic, cooling herb. Fill
an 8-ounce spray bottle with cold water and add 6 drops of essential oil of
lavender. Shake well, and spray on the sunburn for soothing relief.
our next Did You Know? column I will
talk about the healing benefits of laughter, plus more. Remember to take some quiet time everyday to
pause, breathe, and focus on beautiful thoughts. Until next time…

I want to thank you for such a

Your support and guidance has also helped me let go of limiting beliefs
and realize greater personal and professional successes.

Ever since taking this training, many
doors have opened up for me both professionally and personally. I
originally thought I’d just take only one 60-hour training through the
Motivational Institute of Hypnotherapy, but I soon realized I was on an
incredible path of change and I needed to continue. I’ve obtained some
valuable tools that have helped me in my personal life and have propelled the
success of my coaching practice. The instructors are superb, and they have a
wide range of expertise. Marla herself
is amazing; she is a great teacher and has been a wonderful mentor to

Kate Middleton Use Hypnosis for Childbirth?
It was widely reported that Kate
Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, used a
technique called ‘HypnoBirthing’ to ease labor while delivering her new son. The
news, whether or not it is true, shines a light on a slightly misunderstood yet
brilliant natural supportive addition to the birthing experience.
childbirth, or HypnoBirthing, does not involve “going under” or being unaware
of what’s going on. Rather, it helps with anxieties and impending fear of the experience
of pain that oftentimes accompanies labor.
So what exactly does
hypnosis for childbirth consist of? It
involves a breathing technique, relaxation, visualization, and guided imagery.
The most important part is to teach the mother how to relax with each
contraction thus releasing any fear, tension, and anxiety associated with the
Our society recognizes
childbirth as being painful. Every birthing film shows someone screaming and
writhing around in agony. If you’re in a state of fear, the body produces stress
hormones. Yet what you want to produce are endorphins, which are the body’s natural
pain relief that help the mother remain calm and relaxed.
childbirth helps speed up labor and delivery in addition to speeding up the recovery
process for the mother. The newborn also experiences a more peaceful birth.
These techniques aren’t necessarily meant to replace the need for epidurals or
pain relief, but the brilliance of it is that it can be used in addition to all
the other care provided by the hospital.
Mongan, the founder of HypnoBirthing said, "Babies
don’t need to come into the world in pain, and their mothers don’t need to
suffer as they do.” That was the starting
point for her method which relies on deep relaxation and
powerful affirmations to promise not a pain-free delivery, but an easier one. It
works by shutting down the fight-or-flight response of the sympathetic side of
the autonomic nervous system. If a woman heads into labor in fear, her muscles tense
up blocking needed blood flow to the birthing muscles. As the baby moves along
the birth canal, that tightness creates pain which begets fear, and the cycle
Through hypnosis for
childbirth, many babies don't even cry when they come into the world because
they haven't experienced birth trauma,
and they are more content as a result of the HypnoBirthing process.
Alba is a fan as she used hypnotherapy when delivering daughter, Honor.

classes in November 2013. We’ll keep you
