Although skeptics galore deny the use of psychics for anything but entertainment, police departments around the country call on certain psychics when all else fails. They've been doing that for more than a century, and when forbidden to do so, they sometimes use unofficial means. The first official use of "psychic sight" during a trance in a criminal case was in 1845 when a clairvoyant fingered a juvenile suspect, who subsequently confessed. The details of the case aren't documented well enough to decide whether the psychic was making a good guess, perhaps knew the boy, or actually "saw" the crime with her sixth sense.
Regardless of whether intuitive "flashes" of information can best be interpreted in retrospect, they nevertheless have supported searches that yielded evidence and given specific information about crimes, even if they've rarely prevented one. Supposedly Jeanne Dixon tried to warn the White House of a vision she had just before President Kennedy was assassinated, but either she didn't or no one noticed (or cared). Kennedy was assassinated. Psychic Chris Robinson reports that he foresaw a murder, contacted the mother of the soon-to-be victim, was ignored, and the murder took place. Yet Dorothy Nickerson called a store in Arizona in 1982, certain they would be robbed the next night, and police who acted on this did arrest an armed man loitering nearby. Whether he had planned to rob the store is anyone's guess (she actually envisioned two men doing it), because once a crime is foiled, who can say what would have happened?
Belief in "seers" continued through the ages” the 16th-century mystic Nostradamus for example and Victorians produced spiritualists (many of them bogus) who invited people into seances to communicate with the dead. In 1888, psychics got involved to some degree in the case known as the Whitechapel murders, or the crimes of the man known as Jack the Ripper. In 10 weeks, from the end of August into November, someone killed five prostitutes (two of them on a single night), slitting their throats and removing pieces of them to carry off. The murders stopped as quickly as they had begun, and Jack's identity was never conclusively resolved. There were a handful of suspects, but no one was ever charged or convicted of any of these brutal crimes. To try to discover who this killer might be or when he might strike again, spiritualists all over England held sittings, the details of which were sometimes revealed to the press. From his scars to his residence to his accomplices, spiritualists provided what information they could about the killer from their impressions. One man said that he was wearing a tweed suit, and he took the police to the home of a doctor, who was subsequently hospitalized for mental illness, but no psychic provided information that conclusively solved the crimes.
Over a century later, Pamela Ball tried to contact the victims or the killer through channeling, in which a living person becomes a means through which the dead can speak. Calling her method "evidential Mediumship," she used several different means, including astrological charts of the victims, to contact someone with "inside" knowledge. She received feelings such as nausea and resignation, and images of several different men, which indicated that there may have been more than one killer. She tried contacting various suspects and came to the conclusion that there were political secrets that most of the victims knew, and that's why they had been killed.

Hypnosis is a very effective and versatile tool for treating depression problems. Clinical depression is one of most prevalent mental health problems today. If you are clinically depressed, you need help. Living with clinical depression is a daily struggle. Life is too short to be depressed.
Symptoms of clinical depression include some or all of the following:
Low mood, feelings of hopelessness and helplessness, self-deprecation, depleted self-confidence and self-esteem, feeling useless, loss of energy and motivation, and feeling disconnected.
Excessive sleepiness and/or an inability to rest, boredom, inability to stay focused and concentrate, memory loss, pessimistic and morbid thoughts, mental perseveration, loss of the desire to socialize, inability to experience simple pleasures in living, and suicidal thoughts.
Appetite changes, weight loss or weight gain, difficulties getting out of bed in the morning, dreading the day, looking forward for the day to end, anxiety, agitation, fears, shakiness, mental slowing and dullness, slowed reaction time, and total inefficiency.
Living with depression is very painful. Clinical depression is both a medical illness as well as a problem in living. As such, clinical depression needs to be evaluated and treated both medically as well as psychologically” both components are necessary.
Medical treatment of clinical depression largely involves the prescription of anti-depressant medications. These drugs can ameliorate the biological/physical and mood symptoms of depression, but they do not treat the underlying psychological factors and negative fixed ideas that need to be addressed.
The psychological treatment of depression involves supportive psychotherapy and psychological counseling aimed at changing the cognitive, behavioral and mood symptoms of the condition.
If you are currently suffering from depression, and you are seeking Psychological Treatment for your condition, you will need:
1. To be helped to identify your negative, self-defeating thinking patterns and to replace them with healthier ways of thinking.
2. To be coached to engage in activities to keep yourself occupied and to distract yourself from your morbid thoughts.
3. To be helped to interrupt your morbid thinking habits.
4. To be helped to pursuemood lifting activities.
When people are clinically depressed, they do not think clearly. They hold a pessimistic view of the future, unrealistic expectations, and are unusually harsh and overly critical of themselves.
If this is true for you, you probably tend to judge things in stark all or nothing terms. When you are depressed, you tend to key in on the negative aspects of situations, seeing the proverbial glass as half empty as opposed to half full. It feels as if there is no future. This is NOT the truth, but it does FEEL this way.
If you are clinically depressed, you feel trapped and devoid of choices. You are in fact trapped in a mental prison by your negative thinking, pessimistic expectations, and perseveration on morbid themes.
Hypnosis can offer a positive way out of this predicament. Through the use of hypnotic techniques and language, the doorway to your subconscious can be opened with your permission and cooperation, and then, information can be introduced hypnotically through hypnotic suggestion to:
1. Change your negative self-suggestions.
2. Reduce your feelings of guilt and self-blame.
3. Help you to begin making positive choices again.
4. Shift your perspectives on your negative experiences.
If you are clinically depressed, Therapeutic Hypnosis can help you begin to move in a positive direction and take steps towards healthier behavioral functioning and mood lifting and mood shifting activities. Hypnosis can help you learn more adaptive behavioral and psychological coping skills.
In hypnosis, you are guided to mentally rehearse the process of countering and refuting your negative, pessimistic thoughts. The tool of hypnosis makes the rehearsal of these cognitive coping skills easier, quicker and more effective. The coping skills become imprinted directly into your subconscious mind. Through the use of hypnotic imagery and post-hypnotic suggestion, you can learn to psychologically inoculate yourself against the adversity of difficult daily living situations that depress you.
Hypnosis is also employed to uncover and re-process past experiences and memories that have sensitized you to continued depressive reactions in the present.
When you come to see me for Hypnosis Treatment, you will also be taught the use of Self Hypnosis and Deep Relaxation skills. All of the resources of your mind and body are in balance during deep relaxation. There is no wasted energy on anger, pain or discomfort. All of that energy becomes available for positive healing, growth and change.
Structured interviews were carried out with 49 widows and 19 widowers under the age of 45 who had been bereaved 14 months previously. A number of indices of health and emotional disturbance were shown to distinguish these bereaved respondents from a matched control group. The 13-month-bereaved group was characterized by recent disturbance of sleep, appetite and weight, by complaints of depression, restlessness, indecisiveness and sense of strain and by an increased consumption of alcohol, tobacco and tranquilizers. They were more likely than the control group to have been admitted to a hospital during the preceding year. Widowers reported an increase in acute physical symptoms although neither sex had more chronic physical symptoms than the controls. Two to four years later there was little difference in health between bereaved and control groups but there was evidence of persisting "disengagement."
Sex & Intimacy
Relaxation techniques and hypnosis can overcome sexual aversion disorder, also sometimes referred to as sexual anorexia, because all psychologically based disorders are products of the way in which the mind has interpreted and absorbed certain experiences or impressions. Hypnosis is a proven method of utilizing the latent power of the mind to change positively the habituated subconscious thought patterns that derive from past negative experiences or impressions. Firstly, though, there's a difference between a temporary loss of desire for sex and a diagnosis of sexual aversion disorder.
People can experience temporary lack of sex drive or interest in sexual contact for numerous reasons. Bereavement, unplanned redundancy and unemployment, financial stress, childbirth, menstruation, post operative recovery, divorce and of course finding yourself in an unhappy relationship are but some of the circumstances which can cause a temporary reduction of interest in sex.
What is Sexual Aversion Disorder?
The condition of ongoing sexual aversion, first acknowledged as such in the 1980's, relates too much more than the normal fluctuations in male or female libido that most people experience through their lives. Someone with this condition would exhibit or express highly negative emotions or reactions with regard to the thought of any form of sexual intimacy with anyone, although it does occur in varying degrees.
In some cases, the person concerned may feel fine about intimacy up to a certain point, even perhaps certain levels of foreplay, but would have a strongly negative reaction to the prospect of actual genital contact, either as a male or a female, though this condition is more common among women
In other cases sexual or intimate contact of any kind or extent is avoided, the prospect of which, along with the fear of being touched, causes feelings of panic, nausea, disgust and sometimes anger.
Sometimes this fear of and repugnance toward sexual activity has been present in the individual since their early years, or comes about after some deeply upsetting experience later in life.
Others have a more specific (situational) form of the condition, which means that they're strongly averse to the idea of intimate sex with a particular partner or types of partner(s) and/or in certain circumstances.
The more generalized and more serious form of sexual aversion disorder, which makes the person unable to feel good about any kind or level of sexual activity at all, is often based on highly negative past experiences such as rape or some other form of violence or prolonged negative mental conditioning. Gender identity disorder has also been sometimes seen as a contributory factor.
Hypnosis for Sexual Aversion Disorder
There is now such an acknowledged understanding of the power of the subconscious mind to overcome psychological - and even physical - problems, that the potential value of hypnosis as a means of successfully treating this condition cannot be overlooked. Once it's been established that there are no physical factors, which could be causing aversion to sex, it's time to focus attention on the mind.
There is a debate as to whether treatment in these cases should be viewed as a method of dealing with an anxiety disorder or purely as a psychological aversion disorder relating specifically to sex.
The important thing, it would seem, would be to start at the place where the problem began. You would get there; of course, by going back in your mind to where, when and how the problem began.
Undergoing the process of acknowledging, absorbing and letting go of the past experience(s) is the first real step towards overcoming it.
If you have insomnia, those can be some very welcome words. Insomnia can be the result of worry, fears, anxiety, and badly functioning brain wave patterns. In order to fall asleep, your brain must go from a BETA brain wave into ALPHA. Alpha state is where everything is dreamy, where visualizations are clear and that sleep switch in your brain is ready to let you go into DELTA and THETA, and be asleep.
So, how do you make this happen?
When the conscious mind is busy, with worry, anxiety, fears, anger, emotional conflicts, etc. the brain has a hard time letting go of it's conscious processing. Some people hear music in their head, repeat endless statements with their inner voice or just worry so much about not being able to sleep that they indeed cannot sleep!
If you have insomnia, you know the problem. You start worrying early in the day about whether or not you are actually going to be able to sleep that night. And once you miss a night of sleep, you worry even more about not sleeping the next night. And this PERPETUATES the problem. Worrying about insomnia creates the insomnia.
You can change it. But you are going to need help. Your brain is an expert at having insomnia. It does not know how to do it any differently. If it did, you wouldn't have the sleep disorder any more. So, in order to sleep deep, you are going to have to teach your brain how to go instantly into an alpha state, how to use subconscious triggers to eliminate worry and anxiety and stay asleep once you are asleep.
Hypnosis is very effective in curing chronic insomnia. It is easy. It works. I wish more people would try it, instead of all the pills and drugs. The interesting thing about sleeping pills is the placebo effect. This means that when you think you are taking a sleeping pill, but it is really a sugar pill (placebo) your brain believes that it will fall asleep and so it does. Sometimes when I can't sleep, I put myself into a state of trance, and imagine that I am taking a sleeping pill. I am usually asleep in a few minutes. Even though my conscious mind knows that this was not real, my subconscious mind does not know and this is the important part.
THE SUBCONSCIOUS MIND DOES NOT KNOW THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A REAL AND AN IMAGINED EVENT. This is why hypnosis works so well. Hypnosis changes the way the subconscious mind works. It creates the belief that something is possible, acts on it as if it is real, and creates a new outcome. In this case, sleep.
I have created these hypnosis MP3s for sleep because I know you can end insomnia for good. Once you use them, you will know that this is the answer you have been looking for. Just turn on the MP3 player and GO TO SLEEP!
Imagine what a relief that will be! No pills, no drugs, no worry.
