Did You Know?

Ways to Boost Your Brain Power: 1) Write in red ink - Researchers found that the color red “binds” into our memory better that other colors making it ideal for recalling, especially those things on your to-do list.

2) Close your eyes - Closing your eyes while recalling an event can help you remember details 23% more accurately. It is thought that once visual distractions are removed, your brain focuses more efficiently.

3) Get moving - Research shows that regular movement breaks increase focus and retention while strengthening cognition in students and adults of all ages. 

Walnuts Seem to Triple Melatonin Levels in the Body: Melatonin is one of the body's sleep regulating hormones. So if you're tired of counting sheep at night, maybe a pre-bedtime snack of walnuts would help you get some shut-eye.

People are 50% More Likely to be Dishonest in the Afternoon Than in the Morning: Reason - our ability to exhibit self-control to avoid cheating or lying is reduced over the course of a day. Therefore, when you want the truth out of someone, make sure you ask them in the morning. (Research study: Harvard University - Center for Ethics)

Inspirational Quotes

"One looks back with appreciation to the brilliant teachers, but with gratitude to those who touched our human feelings. The curriculum is so much necessary raw material, but warmth is the vital element for the growing plant and for the soul of the child." ~Carl Jung

“We do not quit playing because we grow old, we grow old because we quit playing.” ~Oliver Wendell Holmes 

"Life is like photography—you use the negative to develop. No matter what adversity you face, be reassured: The Universe has us surrounded. Might as well surrender." ~Swami Beyondananda 

“A pessimist is one who makes difficulties of his opportunities, and an optimist makes opportunities of his difficulties” ~Harry S. Truman


I have learned so much in this internship and have evolved into a hypnotherapist thanks to all the support of my colleagues and instructors at the Motivational Institute of Hypnotherapy


One of the most important lessons I’ve learned is to trust and believe in myself.  It took a lot of courage for me to push past my own insecurities and conquer my fears of not being good enough. For some reason I felt that I wasn’t prepared enough to begin the internship, and thanks to the gentle shove and encouragement from Marla, I was able to overcome this fear and “Just do it.”  I’ve learned that I do have the skills and knowledge to help my clients who will be coming to see me.


I am truly thankful to Marla and the other amazing instructors for all their insights, knowledge, and guidance. What a wonderful example they have set! Like the ripple effect, I too will do my best to help as many people as possible with a loving open heart and hope one day to be a teacher to others. ~T. Ellis

Letter from the Executive Director

Hi Everyone, 

Be grateful for what you have, and you’ll end up having more… 

With this being the time of year when we focus more on gratitude, I'd like to take the opportunity to tell you just how much you mean to me. Even though we may not have seen much of each other this year (if at all), know that you are still in my thoughts and in my heart. 

The gifts of family and friends are reflecting mirrors of the riches in my life. The precious moments and special memories I hold dear to my heart can never be replaced and are only enhanced because of the light you shine back. 

Whatever you have planned this Thanksgiving, I hope you are sharing your time with friends, family, or someone who gives meaning to your life. 

Life gains meaning because you are walking side by side with me in this journey called life. I am so grateful for your light.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Marla Brucker, DCH, R.HA

TURN FEAR into POWER and create powerful moments to make you unstoppable! Fire walking is an activity for realizing that it is possible to do things that seem impossible. It’s a metaphor for turning fear and limiting beliefs into power.  


The fire walking experience creates an atmosphere of unity. It fuses the mind, body, and spirit together into one focus. You will experience powerful breakthroughs and renewed energy to move forward in life with an enhanced motivation and desire to achieve greater success.
