Hypno Gypsy Secrets

I've started a new blog to symbolize a new chapter in my life. It will focus more on Hypnotherapy, Intuitive and Spiritual Experiences. I welcome everyone to follow Hypno Gypsy Secrets and share their stories. Also because the two blogs are connected I've changed my signature to "The Hypno Gypsy", but it's still me. The vision of my practice is evolving, and as I continue in my training I'm honing in on the direction I'd like to take. I feel as if I'm coming into my own, intuitively, and I'm focusing more on that as well. I may at some point, retire Relections, but I will continue to follow all the active blogs of my classmates. This has been such a wonderful experience
Blessings of Peace and Abundance,

How to Relax and Refresh in 90 Seconds: 8 steps - wikiHow

I published an on-line article under a Creative Commons License for a multimedia repository. The Wikimedia Commons is a type of copyright license that lets others distribute, remix, tweak, and build upon your work, even commercially, as long as they credit you for the original creation. That basically means I have the rights to the original, but the website has the right to change it. As a novice writer, I'm completely comfortable with this arrangement, and welcome any editing to my article. Of course, if it's content is too similar to another article or cannot stand on it's own, it may be deleted or merged with another. I'm comfortable with that, also. I wrote a "How To" article that I feel was within the scope of my knowledge and ability. I probably will submit other articles to "trade magazines" or websites as I become more knowledgeable and comfortable in my field.  I admit, I may have taken the easy way out, as far as getting my work published, but it has been submitted, and I feel relieved. I'll know soon if it will become part of the world's largest, on line  How To Manual, or be deleted. You can follow this link to read it, at least for now.

As I breath in the cool, crisp, morning air I reflect on how fortunate I am. I am where I belong, and I am truly thankful. It's just a small bistro table on the pavement by the door, surrounded by a neglected garden, but morning coffee in the yard is a blessing in itself. The sky is the color of a Tiffany box, and it peeks from behind the kudzu as the gulf breeze gently blows. The Spanish moss hangs heavy in the oaks from the early morning thunderstorm.The geckos play in the overgrown pansies like elusive little fairies, as the dog settles in at my feet. I sip my coffee slowly, and take it all in. "God is in his heaven and all is right with the world." Job interview today, second interview for a dog trainer position. Think positive ...the job is mine... they'll love me as much as I love dogs...What do you do for a living?  I am a dog trainer.  Dog Trainer / Student / Hypnotherapist / Blogger ?! Animal Trainer... I train dogs... I train animals, I'm a dog trainer. Yeah, I'm an animal trainer.  
Things to do today:

  1.  Interview at 1
  2.  buy postcards & stamps
  3.  find the box with my script notebook
  4.  pick up Liv from Science Club at 4
  5.  make spaghetti
  6.  finish schoolwork (at least the overdue assignments)  

COFFEE CUP IS EMPTY - MUST REFILL...move to top of list

Object Assignment

My webcam sits patiently atop my monitor like a one-eyed alien, waiting to be called for service. I affectionately call him Cam, and do not ask much of him. Perhaps he would have more assignments if only the quality of his work was higher. So, he sits, watching; waiting; wanting to send what he sees, but loyally keeping my secrets. They just don't make gadgets like Cam anymore. He's never failed me, but he's old and can't keep up with the speed of data. Perhaps I'll recruit a new, faster, webcam. I'll call him Snap, and I'll introduce him to Cam so they can be friends. Cam has been looking forward to retirement, so he'll step aside gracefully and let Snap take over. He will refer to Snap as a "young whipper-snapper" and marvel over his pixels. He'll talk of days gone by when cameras dreamed of having half that many, and reminisce about how it was before Skype. He'll say, "Those were the days when the software was simple". Snap no doubt will be eager to get started, so I'll plug him in, but I won't put Cam away, yet. He'll remain sitting atop my monitor, watching; waiting for the day when Snap doesn't want to work. We know it will come, because they just don't make gadgets like Cam anymore.
