Procrastinating on the De-Cluttering…

06 Sep

Question:

You have NO IDEA how timely this post (The Joy of Tossing Clutter) is for me!!  I just looked at the HJ site today hoping to find something to help w/ Procrastination because I look around my house...thinking I NEED to clean this junk and paper clutter out!!   

Anything already in the HJ library that might help?  

Thanks so much for your work, you've blessed my life over and over!

Dana

Answer:
Thank you very much, Dana.
Hmmm... David Illig has a Procrastination CD, I know.  We don’t carry this particular CD because we don’t include subliminal titles, just as a matter of general policy.  But I like his work very much.  

The only thing HJ has that comes close is the Weight Loss imagery, which uses losing weight as a general metaphor for shedding and clearing out everything, inside and outside - but we have nothing more targeted than that.  

Good luck with this!
(Really, start anywhere - a little corner, even!)

Belleruth, thank you for your help!!!

I found David Illig's site & it looks to have some good stuff.  What's your thoughts on subliminal learning programs?  I'm aware you don't use them in your CD's.

BR replies:

Dana,
You’re right, we don’t carry subliminal programs - mostly because they don’t have the kind of evidence-based track record that we find in the research on spoken word hypnosis and imagery.  And I also don’t like the idea of selling a program where we’re not entirely certain of what’s on it.  

But I do trust David Illig.  He's been around for a while and he’s very skillful at what he does.  And he sent me the “cheat sheet” that spells out what the subliminal messages are, and they're simple, affirming and positive (and you can catch some of the phrases in there anyway.)  Hope this helps.

Best wishes,
Belleruth
