  • Change Your Health by Changing Your Mind

    Ginger Hill, MS, MCHES, Wellness Speaker & Coach, Good Health for Good Works

    Christians have the responsibility to leverage and maximize the positive impact of the gift of good health of body, mind and spirit that has been given to us and, when possible, invest in improving and maintaining our health as an act of worship of and service to God. Why? Because good health practices help us to offer our bodies and minds to God so that we can be His ambassadors in the world (2 Corinthians 5:19-20) and do the "...good works, that God prepared in advance for us to" (Ephesians 2:10) with energy, effectiveness and excellence. MORE >

    Yet, despite our best intentions to practice good health habits, most of us struggle. For many of us, the problem is not that we do not have enough knowledge or even resources. More than we need more information or innovation, we need a change of mind. Changing our health starts with changing (or renewing) our mind! (Romans 12:1-2)

    In this one-hour seminar, the members of your church or Christian organization will learn about and discuss:

    1. The blessing of willingly being used by God as He works through our physical, mental and spiritual being to do His work and fulfill His will on the earth.
    2. The call to offer all of ourselves (body, mind and spirit) for God’s service.
    3. The grim facts and grave consequences of the poor health practices of many Christ-followers today.
    4. The unhealthy mindsets that hinder our ability to follow through on consistently practicing good health habits and how to challenge them with the word of God.
    5. Practical strategies and encouragement to take steps forward towards good health in freedom and confidence in the grace and mercy of God.

  • I Promise Not to Make You Quack Like a Chicken!

    Melanie Griffis Jones, MA, LPC, ACCTH, TraceSuccessful and Griffis/Jones & Associates

    Every time I am someplace with a new group of people and am asked what I do for a living, my response usually gets all the attention. All I have to do is say I am a clinical hypnotherapist and the room goes quiet. Then, when I hear someone say they can't be hypnotized, I simply smile. The truth is no one can be unless they are willing. The opposite is true too. Everyone can be hypnotized because hypnosis is actually self hypnosis. Also, you won't "cluck like a chicken" unless you really want to do that. On the other hand, you can release unwanted weight, stop smoking, eliminate your fear of flying, or improve your athletic abilities with just a few sessions of clinical hypnosis. MORE >

    About eight years ago, I took a six day intensive hypnotherapy training as a creative way to get the continuing education credits I needed to keep my professional licensure. I was intent on "just doing the 6-day and not any of the additional long term training that was offered." That was until the 5th day when I saw first hand how very powerful this was. The instructor said you can see greater results in five sessions of hypnotherapy than you can in 90 sessions of talk therapy. By day five, I was a believer. I went on for a two year internship and another five years of advanced training.

    I also started to assistant teach the process. Clinical hypnotherapy is nothing like stage hypnosis. It can help people deal with PTSD, anxiety, abuse issues from childhood and even change the way we deal with grief. Did I mention past lives and how we can explore who we were or why we keep doing some things we don't want to do anymore? Even if all you want to do is learn how to relax, I can share easy tools for calming yourself when stressed. And if you want to bark like a dog or cluck like a chicken, go to a stage show and the hypnotist there can make it happen for you.
