It took me so long since I bought the book to write a review because the information affected me so deeply and subtly, even more than
his first book, "Instant Self-Hypnosis", it was and is a great book ("Instant Self-Hypnosis") by the way, but it doesn't compare to a unified
review of them both at the same time. First-off, I know the full merits and full power of traditional self-hypnosis and meditation and "the
magic of believing" of all sorts. But his approach, though nothing new, it can be considered different and rare. In that you can use it
every day and "in a common way", the approaches in both books, yet also in the most uncommon way possible. He does use a definite
Coueistically influenced approach in the second book though. "Common Habit" can be the most powerful thing when consciously
applied. But his books are "The Advanced Concepts of Hypnosis", especially this one.
Charisse Barsella, "Zen Revolution...How Your Ordinary Can Make You Extraordinary"
"Self-Hypnosis Revolution". Unlike most of the reviewers I am actually one of Forbes's very satisfied clients. A couple of months ago
out of the blue, I contacted him for a session and found out he was an author too! I immediately got and read both of his books the same
day! The first, "Instant Self-Hypnosis", was a great read.
But the second book was a total surprise! It was completely different from his first book and I dare say from any other "self-hypnosis"
book you're liable to ever read ever. As I read and read "Self-Hypnosis Revolution" I realized this book really wasn't about hypnosis per
se as it was about the connection between what we do everyday as ordinary tasks and how we see what is this ordinary to create an
extraordinary life! WOW I thought, this is actually more like a Zen concept than a self-hypnosis technique!
The question this book answered for me without any drama and so succinctly with the Zen twist is, "How can I make real on-going
self-improvement from exactly where I am right now with what I have? I admit I did get goosebumps when I finally got the simple answer
to that question. And when I did
get the answer I thought, "Could it really be that simple, though?" As we go about our daily tasks, everyday jobs, errands, life activities,
daily chores and the like we can effortlessly begin to weave the deeper meaning of it all? Well Forbes says Yes!
Forbes' methods expose how truly simple it can be to transmute the ordinary meaning of ANY daily human activity into a powerful
catalyst for life changes but the ultimate beauty of his work is in transforming the mundane activities. Those things we do that always
seem to be in the way of getting the REALLY important things done.
Even in the first few hours of using his methods I could feel a jump start in rejuvenating and reprogramming the love of my life; the
small, the big, the boring, the exciting, regardless of what type of activity I was engaged at any time. And then, the real significance of
"Self-Hypnosis Revolution" blasted through me: EVERYTHING we do as humans and a human community is sacred, and when we
treat our life experiences that way then EVERYTHING changes for the better!
This book will help you as it did me to find peace, joy and 'opportunity for personal empowerment' regardless of where you are or what
P. Braden, Sante Fe Springs, CA, "Self-hypnosis Simplified in way you'll use it !! 5 Stars for this
I have read many books on self hypnosis and all sounded great in concept but actually implementing them on a daily practise did go
beyond 4th or 5th day. Hypnosis method using this book actually made me use self hypnosis without missing a day and I am already
seeing some positive changes in me in less than 8 days !... Great Work by Forbes Robbins Blair.
I personally want to thank him for this best book. This book along with "Instant Self-Hypnosis" by same author is Best combo for help
with Self Hypnosis you can find in the market.
Michael Matthews, Houston, TX, "Ingenious..."
This is by far one of the best self-hypnosis books on the market, especially for someone like me. I'm a pre-med student and a lot of
times when I do mundane tasks such as cleaning or even exercising, it feels as though I'm wasting time I could be using to study. I
become anxious whenever I do things that I feel are a "waste of time".
However, with this book I'm now able to change those same chores and make them fun and feel useful. I'm only on the second day of
using this program, but now chores that I used to hate doing are actually exciting and fulfilling! Imagine that, I now enjoy cleaning my
room. Not only that, but the anxious feeling is gone and I'm looking foward to postive changes. Great book!
B. Oglivie, Tucson, AZ, "Book Maven"
I read the first half and applied the easy to use principles right away.
This is amazing. This makes your mundane tasks or stuff you may not want to do, powerful and meaningful in life. If you give it an
honest try you will be amazed.
I am not a SPIRITUAL NEW AGEY type person. I don't believe in new age blah blah, but self hypnosis is really a way of controlling your
thoughts in a powerful way and using the power of relaxation and focus to direct your life in the right way.
YOUR THOUGHTS will determine where you go and what you do in life. Whether you are happy or sad, or doubtful and weak.
The tools in this book are very UNIQUE, I've never seen anything like this and I read all the time. The is an original idea and putting it
into practice the first time was a 9.5 on a scale of 1 to 10. I am sure if I use this on many many activities my life will never be the same
because my thoughts will be taking me in a new direction.
Thoughts are things.
