Sports psychology is an emerging field of study on how our minds can affect physical and athletic performance.

According to Peter Crocker, a sports psychologist and professor at the University of British Columbia, “Elite athletes have been using psychological techniques for years…it used to be that something had to be wrong for an athlete to consult a sports psychologist, now they do it to gain an edge

Two years ago, I knew very little about Siberia or Tuva, a small republic in southern Siberia, or at least my knowing was not in my waking consciousness at the time. I knew from journey work that something was calling me to Asia - where, I could not pinpoint. When guided through a visualization to recall my ancestry, I saw my original spirit form travel to the great Mountains and Steppes. I am a woman of mixed race - Chinese, Filipino, Puerto Rican, Corsican and Portuguese, so this came as no surprise that I would be taken back to Asia the land of my father. The place was familiar to me - the cold winters, the sweet warm summers, the wide plains, the rivers, animals and way of life. Life was hard, but joyous.





The Onion present new techniques for overcoming stress through visualization.

Dr. David Hanscom, MD

Dr. Hanscom, let’s tell you a little bit more about who he is. He is a board certified orthopedic surgeon specializing in complex spine problems. He has expertise in adult and pediatric spinal deformities, however he is now a “salvage surgeon” and operates only as a last resort. He has successfully treated hundreds of patients for chronic pain (and this is a biggie) without surgery. In his book “Back in Control,” he describes his “DOCC” approach. It stands for “Defined, Organized, Comprehensive, Care.” This non-surgical rehabilitation program for chronic pain includes sleep management, reprogramming the nervous system (via stress management using applications like mindfulness, meditation, writing, visualization) and goal setting, to name just a few… which is why I'm so hip on sharing his work...


Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: There is hope for pain. Many of us, like Dr. Hanscom, are showcasing healing work that delivers options beyond pills, traditional methodologies and surgery. The only challenge... to have these options work for you, you must be willing to take responsibility for your pain and the treatment of it on a deeper more passionate level. Are you willing to do that? If so, the rewards can be endless. Read or listen to learn more...

Most people who experience meditation before hypnosis are surprised at how similar they seem. Both disciplines share many almost identical techniques, such as breathing and visualization exercises. For instance the ‘Progressive Relaxation’  technique is frequently used in both disciplines...


Editor's Note from Karen Branch: Good explanation of difference & similarities between hypnosis & meditation.



by Martin Brofman
With this experience, you will be directing your attention to each of the chakras in turn, first by focusing on physical sensations, and then by using your imagination, your ability to create images, to create the experience of colors there.  There is no difference between imagination and visualization, except for the fact that most people believe more in their ability to imagine than in their ability to visualize. They know that even children can imagine things, but visualization …  well, that’s another thing...
