Friday January 4 is World Hypnotism Day


January 4th, 2013, is World Hypnotism Day.

What is that?

The purpose of this day is to remove the myths and misconceptions about hypnosis and promote the truth and benefits of it. Unlike what you might have seen in movies or television, hypnosis will not make you do anything you do not want to do and it can be highly beneficial to enhance your life in many areas.


Did you know?


Hypnosis has been utilized for more than two hundred years and has even been used for surgical anesthesia.

Trish Ostroski a certified hypnotherapist and  has over a 90% success rate in smoking cessation, weight loss, phobias, habits such as  nail biting as well as stress management, and improvement in sleep and much more. This includes sports enhancement, learning improving, reducing test anxiety and much more.  All accomplished without the side effects of medications or invasive procedures.


Here is more information

Your subconscious mind is in charge of your habits and changes. Hypnosis is effective in harnessing the imagination to create what you want, rather than focusing on what you don’t want. For example, if weight loss is your goal and you are continually tempted by ice cream, if you simply think about not eating ice cream your subconscious will think about what it’s like to have that treat. So ultimately it is tempting you rather than helping you avoid it. Hypnosis has the ability to retrain your subconscious to focus on more desirable food that can take the place of the ice cream and in addition allows you to have a very vivid imaginary experience of being thin, feeling healthy, stopping smoking, and happily reaching the desired goals. You are concentrating on the desired outcome.

Get your year off to a great start

Through August we will have an Olympic Theme to The Wake Up Your Life Blog


Chances are you have seen at least some Olympic coverage. It is amazing to see the determination, rising to new heights, and in some occasions a few lows as people from all over the world compete for the gold medal. 

It is wise to examine what is the hold that you are going for in your own life? How might you need to adjust things to reach your goals? What steps do you need to take? More training, a coach, discipline, planning, organizing?

It is interesting to note that we have to do many of the things in our own life to accomplish things, build relations, become better people and more. 

Where do you stand in your journey? What steps will you take?

Persistence isn’t using the same tactics over and over. 

Persistence is having the same goal over and over and adapting to new ways to pursue the goal. 

You may need to get some knowledge via a coach, an class, seminar or book. 

You may need to overcome some mental blocks and build a better plan. 

There is no need to give up on your goal however you may need to refine it or put in additional steps. 

It will feel good to get at least one new step complete. 

Keep at it. Many goals are accomplished gradually and few are completed overnight.

June is Busting Out Month—Get Out of That Rut!
By Trish Ostroski
We must always change, renew, rejuvenate ourselves, otherwise we harden”
–Johann von Goethe
Good advice in that quote from Goethe. An excellent approach to life.

Are you stuck in a rut? Are you caught up in the same old routine and same old things and feel like you’re getting nowhere? Do you feel like you are capable of having more, doing more, and being more?

Our lives are full of repetitious activities from eating to sleeping and even to simple things like  brushing our teeth. We travel to work on the same roads. We encounter the same people, do the same work,  go home, eat, sleep and start all over again. Some repetition is useful and necessary and even comforting– too much seems to lead to the formation of a rut.

Whenever you start to feel like you are  in a rut change things up a little. Go out with a friend you haven’t seen in awhile, set new goals, go someplace you have never been before, find a new recipe or try a new food,  to cook, do a new exercise or thechnique,  or learn something new. What do you do to get out of a rut?

Need some ideas? Keep reading.

How To Get Out of a Rut

1 – First realize that you are actually stuck in a rut. Coming home from work everyday and just vegging in front of the tv or hanging out at the computer until you go to sleep is a good indicator that you are in a rut.

2 – Figure out the source of your rut. Look at the areas of your life you consider ruts.  What activity did you do repetitively that got you into the rut? Why was it a good thing at first and not good now?

3 – Do you want to get out of the rut?

But if we say we don’t like the rut – are we sure we really want it to go away? We must sometimes examine the reasons for our ruts. It may be there to protect us from some pain we perceive that the effort to change would cause. However, life often begins at the end of your comfort zone. Shaking the rut might just shake up some good stuff.

Most of us don’t change (behaviors, attitudes, relationships) until the pain gets great enough. This doesn’t need to be physical pain. It can be psychological and emotional pain as well. These can cause us to change as well. The desire to get out of a rut – in our relationships, our jobs, our free time – will only motivate us when the alternatives are not attractive.

So your first task in rut busting is to honestly ask yourself if the pain and/or unhappiness you feel is sufficient to move you in some other direction. If the answer is “no” then the next task is to begin to add reasons to change. Start a list – write down as many reasons as you can to change and a second list of reasons to let things remain as they currently are.

4 – Embrace Change.

“If you don’t like something change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude. Don’t complain.” –Maya Angelou

Unfortunately, many people don’t like change. But, life is always in the process of change. There is nothing in life that stays the same.  We are either in the process of growth or in the process of decay.

Look what happens to a fruit after it reaches it’s ripest stage… it soon rots.

Change is the only thing that is constant in life. It is continual and always happening.  We are either moving forward in life or we are moving backward.

Life is all about change and there is no escaping it. Change is good. A person is the most happy when he or she is working toward a goal.  “Success” is the journey! It is not the destination. Along the journey there will obviously be change.

Who really wants to experience a life without a challenge? Be honest, how bored would you be with nothing to strive toward?

5 – Define what inspires you.

There’s a big difference between taking action out of inspiration versus desperation. So let’s take a look at that. What are you good at? What are you doing when you feel most fulfilled? What would you do for absolutely free? What moves you emotionally? When you answer these questions you’ll begin to discover the things that inspire you.

Maybe you feel you’re working a dead-end job in a field you’re not passionate about, but love sports and have always dreamed of working in athletics. Then apply for assistant coaching positions or coach a kids’ team. Do it because you love it, not for the money. The money will come if you consistently act out of inspiration. An inspired individual enthusiastically rises every morning ready to face the day head-on, knowing that challenges and obstacles are nothing more than speed bumps. There are always some  along the road to success. First get clear on what moves you and you’ll see your life start to head in an exciting new direction.

6 – Develop a plan of action against the rut.

Benjamin Disraeli said–“Action may not always bring happiness, but there is no happiness without action.”

You need to act. Take action.

– Set goals

– Set challenges

– Set clear intentions – Goals are finish lines, but intention is the process of achievement. An intention has resolve, discipline and commitment. Once you’ve established what truly inspires and moves you, the next step is to set a clear intention to guide your unconscious mind. Be specific. How many pounds do you want to lose in the next 90 days? How much money do you want to earn over the next year? How many dates do you want to go on over the next two months? Then envision what your life will look like once you’ve achieved your intention. When you create a strong enough reason within you, you get it done. Understanding this gives you the edge – but applying it will pull you out of your rut.

7 – Stay Positive. Feed your brain positive information. Focus on the present. Don’t spend time regretting the past you can not change it, but you can learn and grow from it. Learn to manage your thoughts.Don’t let your thoughts manage you. Keep your attention focused on your intention. Stop complaining.

8 – Action. Do something different. Try new things. Learn a new skill. Read a book in a different genre. Spend time with enthusiastic people.

– Creative activities such as art, music, and writing can be very stress relieving and give you an outlet to express yourself.

– Join a club, engage in new tasks at work and on your own, try a new exercise, or exercise a little differently, read articles or books about others who have achieved great things, explore a new hobby, take lessons, enroll in a class, read books on the subject, connect with people with a similar passion, connect with people vastly different, turn off the television, go back to school, sleep more, eat better/healthier, find new recipes to try, learn more about nutrition, try different ethnic foods, try new restaurants, do something for other people, volunteer, explore a topic thouroughly, challenge your opinion on something, incorporate humor, look at things from a different perspective, hire a coach, get counseling, learn time management, learn stress management, try hypnosis/hypnotherapy.

9 – Express Gratitude for all you currently have in your life. Express gratitude to others verbally or in writing.

Gratitude is an extremely powerful force. It ramps up your energy levels, puts you in a positive head space and makes what you want in life move toward you with great intensity. Regardless of your current income, present physical health or success in relationships, you have a thousand reasons to be thankful. When you focus on what you’re grateful for and express gratitude daily for all that you’ve been gifted, the universe will respond with continuously expanding opportunity.

10 – Take enthusiastic action each and every day.

It’s not enough to simply think and feel that you’re ready to get out of your rut. You have to work with your thoughts, feelings and actions all firing in alignment. Fate favors the bold — so act boldly. It’s important that you live from your outcome versus moving toward it. What would a person in top physical condition eat today? What would a multi-millionaire read and what types of people would he communicate with? Once you’re clear on what it is that you want in life, and act with resolve every single day, you’ll generate previously inconceivable results and your life will become a great adventure. Emulate those that have done certain things that you seek to do. Enthusiasm changes your whole physiology and brings up your energy.
