Proof That What You Believe Matters!

Mar 10, 2015
InnerTalk Brain Power

Imagine this, two groups of people are given identical cigarettes. One group is told the cigarettes are nicotine free. The brain processes accordingly and the group who believe the cigarette is nicotine free show entirely different brain activity. Indeed, the reward pathways that lead to addiction fail to exhibit activity in the group who believe the cigarette is nicotine free. Can you imagine this? This is much more than a placebo. What is being suggested in our two groups goes far beyond placebo—it would suggest that our beliefs are as powerful as a physical influence! Beyond The Placebo Effect If ...

One Practice to Rejuvenate Mind, Body and Soul

Mar 03, 2015

Not long ago I came across two spiritual practices that sounded so appealing to me that I decided to try to incorporate them in my own life. The first is the Danish practice called Hygge, and is credited with assisting the Danes in remaining happy and optimistic through their long dark winters. Hygge (pronounced hue-gah) roughly means coziness, and involves such things as candles, a warm glowing fire, friends, good food, comfort foods and drinks etc. While there may be plenty of this over Christmas, I often find the beginning of January very difficult when I realize that spring is ...

The Wealth in Ideas

This past week I received a reply to an answer I sent a listener. Here is the thrust of it: I appreciate your willingness to share what you believe with others even though you say you are not at the superstar level of Dyer and Robbins and others (though I have heard of you frequently, so you can’t be doing too badly!), but what troubles me is they achieve their “success” (financial and otherwise) from teaching others how to be successful, i.e., other than teaching success, they haven’t had to go out there and be successful. The other thing that ...

Time Clock

Ravinder’s Corner Dear Friend, I have recently been thinking a lot about the aging process and I believe I now know the sure-fire way to beat Old Father Time. I would love to hear your thoughts on this one. But before I get to that, here are a couple of quick announcements. Eldon has two live speaking events coming up. One right here in Spokane, WA on Thursday, Sept. 18 and the other at the I Can Do It conference in Pasadena, CA on Sunday, October 26. If you can make it to either of these events, I would highly ...

The Rational Human

brain puzzle

God sleeps in the minerals, awakens in plants, walks in animals, and thinks in man.      ~Arthur Young Recently I asked a couple of questions on my Facebook page. “What if everything you believe is wrong? Can you even admit that possibility?” What if we discovered tomorrow that foundational “truths” we hold to be dear were in fact false—what would we do? Would we deny the marshal of evidence before us? Would we attack the messenger delivering the news? Would we challenge with arguments of credibility, authenticity, verifiability, and so forth? Well the likelihood is very high that we would do ...

Self-Improvement: Journey or Destination?

Aug 19, 2014
Ravinder Taylor

Letter from Ravinder Taylor Dear Friend, What does self-improvement mean to you? Is there just one issue that you wish to correct in your life and everything else is perfect, or do you have a series of issues that you are working on? Or do they escalate, one step to the next? I first met Eldon almost 25 years ago when he was teaching in the U.K. at the National College of Hypnosis and Psychotherapy where I was a student. At that time, the workings of the mind fascinated me and I saw my training as being a valuable tool ...
