Greetings and Welcome to the Future World of Hypnosis
How many of us remember that time when over 80% of all Hypnotherapists practiced “Directive Hypnosis”?
During the 60s and 70s a major shift occurred and “non-directive” or self directed practices became the norm. This factor more than any other changed the role of the Hypnotherapist in relation to their clients. Now, instead of using directive “scripts” (one size fits all), practitioners engage their clients in a free and intuitive flow.
It is important to remember that a Hypnotherapist is born with everything they need in order to achieve excellence in their chosen field.
Although many “magical” gadgets are purported to effect the same results as Hypnosis, seldom do these tools provide more than temporary relief. An experienced Hypnotherapist who understands the dynamics of permanent healing can easily explain why this is so.
Not until the client, with the aid of a gifted, well-trained and experienced Hypnotherapist identifies the true source of their problems, can they achieve a state of harmony. Only then can they experience a sense of deep inner peace by forgiving oneself and others—and equally important—affirming hope for a better tomorrow.
Often we Hypnotherapists have our own issues and challenges. As we progress through the three stages of relationship with ourselves and others [Co-dependance, 2) In-dependence, and finally 3) Inter-dependence]; as we continue to practice the dictum, “Physician, Heal Thyself”; we discover that a person who “walks their own talk,” is eminently more qualified to work with others than a directive-oriented, “do what I say not what I do” practitioner.
One of the greatest tools yet to be fully used and appreciated is the subconscious working with time and space. A Hypnotherapist can ask a patient, “How long do you think it will take you to completely finished grieving the loss of a loved one?” If they respond, “three to five years,” you can then suggest to them while they are in a hypnotically altered state: “Would you be willing to complete this as I count down from 20 to 1?” They will almost always say, “Yes!” This is one of the best illustrations of non-directive Hypnosis.
Remember and practice the “State Park Rules”: Always trying to leave a person a little cleaner and brighter, after their visit with you.
One of my favorite sayings is: “It is never too late to have a happy childhood.” Perhaps we can add: “It is never too late to have a magnificent Present with a Future so bright you will have to wear sunglasses 24-7!”
Welcome to a brilliant Future that is my Present,

WE INVITE YOU TO
SERVE ASPH AS AN OFFICER
If you would like to serve ASPH as an officer or if you would like to
nominate an ASPH member to serve as an officer, please email us at
Below is information about the duties of each officer.
The President “steers the ship.” They check and double-check on their own and everyone else’s duties and responsibilities. The President must be familiar with every activity that each of the officers must perform in order to insure that the organization is running smoothly. This requires full knowledge and understanding of the Systems Manual. Use this manual as a map or blueprint.
From the By-Laws:
The Vice-President is the backup for the President. Like the President, they are familiar with every activity that each of the officers must perform in order to insure that the organization is running smoothly. The Vice-President can easily step in and run the organization in the absence of the President. This requires full knowledge and understanding of the Systems Manual. Use this manual as a map or blueprint.
From the By-Laws:
The Secretary, like the President, checks and double-checks on their own and everyone else’s duties and responsibilities. This requires familiarity with every activity that each of the officers must perform in order to insure that the organization is running smoothly. Also, the Secretary should be fully capable of running the meeting and assuming any of the responsibilities for the other officers in case this becomes necessary. Use this manual as a map or blueprint.
From the By-Laws:
The Treasurer will be familiar with every activity that each of the officers performs. Also, they should be fully capable of running the meeting and assuming any of the responsibilities for the other officers in case this becomes necessary. This includes taking care of banking activities, i.e., depositing checks in the absence of the Statutory Agent after the Statutory Agent has endorsed the checks. This requires full knowledge and understanding of the Systems Manual. Use this manual as a map or blueprint.

Announcement from Carol Adler, ASPH Statutory Agent
Since January 2000, I have enjoyed serving ASPH first as Secretary, and from 2003 until now, as

Every monthly meeting was an Event that contributed to my personal
Growth... and it’s always wonderful to spend time with like-minded people.
It is often said that party guests need to know when it’s time to leave. The same is true for
leadership of an organization. For the health of ASPH, it is time for a “change of the
I shall be delighted to serve as Statutory Agent for the year 2011, but next November, you
will be nominating and electing someone else to fill that position. I shall do my best to orient
the new 2012 Statutory Agent. They will have an updated Systems Manual as a comprehensive
guidebook, and the experience and help of other ASPH leaders as well,to make this an easy transition.
Yours in Service, with Love & Light,
Carol Adler, CHt
