I was interviewed by James McCracken, The Successful Adviser, recently. Listen to the podcast here:

Our subconscious mind will always give us what we want even though we may not think so at the time.

Published November 15, 2015 in ‘Starts at 60 Community’

Our subconscious mind will always give us what we want even though we may not think so at the time.

I had another client – a 64 year old, very quiet lady who came to me She was a great believer that the mind creates everything that happens to you and wanted to know why she would have the broken wrist at this time when she was so busy and stressed.

That morning that Isobel came to see me she had walked into a plate glass door. I thought she was very lucky she only had a suspected fracture of the wrist! She looked terrible. She was white, her face was drawn and I thought she was probably still in shock, however despite the suspected fracture she would not go for x­rays until she had found out the reason for her ‘accident.’

It seems that she had been looking after her mother who had been very ill for many years and it was starting to get Isobel down mentally, emotionally and physically. Her mum needed care 24/7 and my client was exhausted.

As we worked together it was clear that Isobel needed a break from her mum – she was worn out with the caring of her but felt trapped by her mother’s needs. She loved her too much to put her into a nursing home but could not manage to look after her any more either.

While her mother needed her help Isobel needed a ‘break’ from it all. And this is exactly what her mind gave her – her break in her wrist was just enough to prevent her being able to look after her mum

Because the subconscious mind cannot judge between a’ break’ meaning time out and a ‘break’ of the wrist–her mind heard her loud and clear and delivered her, her break but not in the manner that she thought. It meant that she could no longer look after her mother and was forced to put her in a nursing home – which in the long term proved to be the best thing for both of them.

So listen very carefully to the words you use ­ they may be expressed in a way that you don’t expect!

Both fortunately and unfortunately the subconscious mind behaves just like a computer – what you get out is what you put in.

It is also fortunate because once you have an illness or problem we can get our subconscious mind to clear out negative thoughts, beliefs and emotions so that we can have our desired health.

Here is one great little exercise you can do so that you get clarity.

Decide that you will stand tall and that if you ask your mind a question you will get the answer ‘yes’ by swaying forward and if you sway backward the answer is ‘no’. You can now do the following exercise to get some insight into your mind:

# Work out a question that requires a ‘yes’ or ‘ no’ answer.

# Stand up
# Stand tall
# Ask yourself that question

Your subconscious mind will give you either a ‘yes’ or a ‘no’ answer.

A question could be:

Is this cold something to do with my work?
Is this cold something to do with my house?
Is this cold something to do with my partner?
Is this cold something to do with a member of my family?

Your inner child may be giving you a cold so that you don’t go to work now as a 40 year old!

You can ask anything you wish to ask as long as you remain in neutral, i.e. you do not anticipate what the answer will be. Your subconscious mind will give you the answer.

Always remember that the subconscious mind does not judge and cannot tell the difference between what we thought when we were a youngster and what we are thinking now – it just reacts. So you may be surprised at the answers you get.

Your mind, the Tour de France and a cold!

Published in Starts at 60 community magazine September 24, 2015

Although your conscious mind has the power of reason and can therefore decide the best action to take, it is the subconscious mind that determines the state of our health.

Our subconscious mind determines whether we are going to be well, be sick, break an arm or leg, have a stroke, have cancer, have eczema or any other health problem we may be facing. All these are a direct result of the thoughts, beliefs, and emotions that are held within the subconscious mind.

It is called the subconscious mind for one very good reason—its thoughts, beliefs, and emotions remain hidden from us until they manifest in some unexpected way—and this is, more often than not, through an illness.

I don’t want you to think our subconscious mind is our enemy. Far from it, our subconscious mind is always protecting us—even when we are sick, it is there looking after us.

Behind every illness or health problem there is a positive thought or emotion or belief.  But while we are trying to overcome our health problem, it’s not always easy to see a positive.

Let me explain a little further.

The subconscious mind cannot judge, nor can it tell time, it can only say ‘yes’. Whatever we take into our subconscious mind at any stage of our life will influence us until such time as we recognize the thought, belief, or emotion and set it free. Once we let go of these negative thoughts, beliefs and emotions, our mind returns to a core of well being, and we begin to get well again.

The mind always tries to protect us.

 For instance:

Marika Mulqueen is only the second woman in the world to ride the Tour de France stage for stage in the race times of the professional schedule. (The last one was in 1910, on a heavy bike with no gears.) She rang me to help her get rid of a bad cold the week before she was to ride the Tour de France route. She was extremely worried. Not only did she have to fly to France, she also had to ride 3,500 kilometers in three weeks! She could not afford to be ill.

We worked on all her fears of not being able to complete the Tour, her fears of holding the men up, and her fears of not being fit enough. (She had not put in any really serious training for this event, as it was a last-minute decision of hers to enter.)

Marika was dealing with many issues, including not being able to speak the language in each country she would pass through on the Tour. So her subconscious mind gave her an ‘out.’ It gave her a cold. Now she had a good excuse if she didn’t ride well—she was sick.

Fortunately, once we recognized and released these thoughts and emotions, her mind was able to let go of the fears and consequently the need for the cold while we talked on the phone She found she was improving dramatically and by the next day, she was well. She was able to fly out to Europe and she completed the 3,500-km ride in three weeks and made history.

Marika’s cold is a classic example of what the mind can do: it will give you a way to avoid something if you need it.

So the saying that things happen for a reason is true. Once you know the reason behind your problem, your mind will let it go, and you will recover.

Tips to take the stress out of exams

Featured in Family Capers Magazine September 18, 2015
Students , parents and teachers put unnecessary pressure on students to get the very best marks.Unfortunately as with any situation we do not perform at our best when we are under pressure as the brain moves into survival mode study mode. So the more stress, the less is achieved.

As a student the best thing you can do is to set up a study timetable as this will take off the worry and enable you to get the maximum study done in the minimum time.

  • Take an afternoon break between school or University and when you start study.
  • Set up your own desk or area with paper, pen, computer – everything you need so that you are not hunting around for anything – it is always right there at your fingertips. Before you go to bed reset the desk for the next night.
  • Always study at the same desk or place – you want your brain trained so that sitting at the desk means for it to switch on maximum concentration
  • Do most important homework before dinner and then set aside 3-4 hours for finishing homework/study after dinner. Ensure dinner break is fully relaxing time for you
  • Start study at the same time every night as your brain will train itself that as you sit down at your desk your mind is already conditioned to study – and you will get the maximum benefit .
  • Take a 10 minute break every hour to refresh yourself, stretch – do not watch TV as this will extend the break time and you want your mind switched on to study not relaxation

If you divide the number of chapters of each book into the number of weeks you have before the exams e.g. 10 weeks to exams and you have 10 chapters of a book to revise or study. Then you know that if you do just 1 chapter a week you will have studied the entire book before the exam. Then assign the night that you will do that chapter and do it. Do this with each of your textbooks so everything will be covered by the exam time.

If you study every night and have divided your books into the weeks available, then you will take off the stress, you will get the maximum out of your mind and you will be as ready as you can be for the exams. As you head for the exam remember you have done all you can and that is the most important thing.

Sometimes students who study hard still fail – and this may be your mind telling you that the career you were studying for is not really what you want to do but rather what you think you are expected to do. Our mind always works for us – you may find that your subconscious mind has given you an out so that you can pursue something that would suit you better. If you really do what you love you will be fulfilling your life purpose and be happy too – and if you love what you do you will always succeed.

Good luck and happy studying!

The more we clutter up our houses, the more cluttered our minds are, the less exercise we do and the less healthy we become

Clutter also saps our energy and the great irony of this is that you won’t get the energy unless you do clean up.

There is also a metaphysical reason to constantly simplify and get rid of clutter in our life. Importantly it helps remove subconscious resistance; creates a vacuum and activates the law of attraction so we can manifest everything we want, including our health.

Because your bedroom should be the most comfortable room in the house, start here first.

Get four large boxes

  • Box 1 is for things you don’t want but no one else would want either- these go to the rubbish bin
  • Box 2 is for things that are still in good condition but that you no longer want-these go to charity
  • Box 3 is for things that need repair
  • Box 4 is for things that need laundering

Now systematically go through everything in your bedroom, right down to the mattress on the bed, selecting what stays and what goes into one of the boxes.

Hang all the clothes with the hanger hooked on the rail facing one way. When you next wear an article, turn the coat hanger the other way. This will show you clearly which clothes to keep and which ones to get rid of.

If you recognized that you can’t throw something out that you don’t wear, then you are keeping it for an emotional reason and not because you might wear it.

Let’s say you go through your wardrobe and your immediate reaction is to throw something out. Then you think: ‘I really should keep this, it cost so much’ and so you put it back in the cupboard. Chances are you will never wear it.

This indicates that you have a money issue or a blockage in your subconscious mind that you need to release by doing the following exercise:

  • Close your eyes
  • With the fingers of both hands, tap the middle of the top of your head.
  • State the following:

‘Even though I cannot throw this (name the item) out because it (was expensive, is too good, might come back into fashion, I can’t fit into it but will, I might need it one day) I accept myself completely and deeply.’

You may have to do this many times as thoughts, feelings, and emotions come to your notice, for example,

‘Even though I cannot throw this out because it belonged to (Mum, Dad, favourite relative, friend) I accept myself deeply and completely.’

‘Even though I feel guilty throwing this out, I accept myself completely and deeply.’


Do not skimp on this exercise—it is more important than it looks at first glance – you are not just cleaning out your cupboard, you are clearing out the negative emotions that are your subconscious resistance to having everything you wish for, including your perfect health.

If after doing the exercises on one article you are still uncomfortable throwing it out, put it back in the cupboard with the hanger facing the right way, knowing it is safe there. Now move along to something else.

Once you have gone through your bedroom, do not start on another room until you have done the following:

  • Take Box1 to the garbage bin immediately
  • Drive to the charity bin to drop off Box 2 immediately
  • Mend the items in Box 3
  • Launder the items in Box 4

Once you have finished that room and thrown out the boxes and laundered and mended the clothes, you can move on to the next room in the house, and so on.

Do not hurry. This is not a speed competition. Your health is important, and it is worth taking the time to make the effort to do it properly.

Do not underestimate the power of this exercise—it will make an incredible difference to you. Just listen to your first, immediate response when you pick up an item; that response will tell you whether the article enhances your life (it immediately feels right to keep it) or if it has a hidden resistance attached to it (you feel you should keep it).

Apply this exercise to every drawer in every room of your home, office, car, and even relationships with your friends and family.

This de-cluttering exercise is important and can be repeated the first week of each month. Don’t worry; it not only gets easier, but you may surprise yourself by actually looking forward to it.
