Why Practice Meditation and Self-Hypnosis?

There are two hemispheres in the brain: the left and the right.  Humans engage the left hemisphere more now than ever.

Left-brain activity includes verbal, analytical and intellectual thought. Activities include thinking, solving problems and organizing. An over-active left-brain, however, can often result in insomnia, fatigue, incessant mental activity and even high blood pressure.

Right brain activity is emotional and intuitive.  It is the side of the brain that is in charge of behavior.  Self-hypnosis and meditation stimulate right brain activity.  The more you practice right brain activities, the more at peace you will feel emotionally.

Meditation practice results in the ability to induce states of deep relaxation, which translates into rejuvenation of the body/mind almost like rebooting a computer.





By becoming a quiet observer of the thoughts of the mind, the very act of witnessing from an objective distance can alleviate negative thoughts and emotions. …read more of Why Practice Meditation and Self-Hypnosis? here

Do you know how to stay grounded and centered no matter what is going on in the world around you?

Our churches and schools are not trained to provide us with the type of solution-oriented problem solving abilities that could permanently enhance the quality of our day-to-day lives.

So where can we get the answers to our most essential life question: “How to ensure peace of mind, clarity and focus even when our activity levels are high?”

Change Yourself; Change the World

By Sunny Massad Ph.D.

We are continuously assaulted, not only by the noise and activity of the world around us, but also by the constant rant of our own minds.

The state of the world reflects the state of our mind, so how each of us chooses to live as individuals ultimately affects what we, as a society become.

When we are conscious enough to notice that our attitude or behavior is destructive, we have the ability to change.

Expanding our scope of consciousness to include a broader perspective than just living for the purpose of instant gratification or external validation will enhance and inspire the way that we live and work.

It also has the power to change the world. …read more of Change Yourself; Change the World here

How Much is Enough… And the Constant Quest for More

By Sunny Massad Ph.D.

In a time-obsessed society such as ours, personal freedom is oftentimes sacrificed to a life of too much structure.

Yet, focusing on mundane, seemingly endless tasks can seem overwhelming and result in feelings of anxiety about how to get it all accomplished.

Energy arises from the wellspring of inspiration. Exhaustion stifles that source.

It would be unrealistic, not to mention uninspiring, to live without having thoughts or hopes about the future.

However, many people fear they may never reach their objectives no matter how hard they “work on themselves,” how much wealth or status they acquire, or how generous they are toward others. So they drive themselves relentlessly.  …read more of How Much is Enough… And the Constant Quest for More here

Creating More Time for Yourself

By Sunny Massad Ph.D.

File under: Positive Psychology

Is freedom anything else than the right to live as we wish?  Nothing else. Epictetus

Some people function well under pressure. Others think they function well but don’t realize the toll that daily stressors take on their minds and bodies.

And still others, like the minimum wage employee scrambling to make ends meet or the single mother juggling more than she can possibly handle, actually do run on fumes.

If you enjoy living in the fast lane, relish the experience. But if you suffer physically, emotionally, or spiritually as a result of your lifestyle, determine how you would prefer to feel each day of your life. …read more of Creating More Time for Yourself here
