If you are lucky enough to find the one and had the love of your life give you that special moment that every women longs for when they get down on one knee and pop the question, then you are now in the process of planning your big day. You probably feel like you are floating in the sky while being overwhelmed with all of the decisions you have to make in the next couple of months. You have probably visioned your dream wedding all your life. It is now time to make those dreams come true. This process can be extremely fun as long as you know what to avoid so that you do not end up with a disaster.
1. Never choose your wedding party to quickly. You most likely already have an idea of who you would want to be in your wedding party because they are usually your closest friends or family but be cautious in choosing too quickly. After you get engaged, your emotions are heightened and you may want to jump on it too fast. This is a mistake. Take your time in choosing and never let other people pick for you! You are not under any obligation because this is your day.
2. Under no circumstances should you choose the wedding dress that your mom likes the best. Of course, you want her to like your wedding dress but remember that this is your day so do not give up the one you love for the one she loves.
3. You need to keep in mind that yes, it is your day but do not lose sight of your guests as well. Your guests’ happiness is a very important part of the results of your wedding. Make your selections appeal to everyone.
4. Do not schedule your wedding ceremony and reception too far apart. If they are hours and hours apart, this will make your guests irritated and they will most likely not be in the party mood anymore.
5. Never have your wedding in an uncomfortable setting. The setting should be comfortable for everyone in your wedding and the guests at your wedding. Even if your dream wedding is set in the middle of the summer or dead of winter outside, this may not appeal everyone.
6. This is probably the most important rule when planning a wedding. Never exclude your groom ladies. He is the one that proposed to you in the first place so do not forget that. Unless he says otherwise, always include him in the planning and decision making.
7. Last but not least, do not forget about yourself, the bride. Do not try and please everyone else when planning for your big day. It is yours and your groom’s, no one else’s. It is of course important to make sure that your wedding party and your guests are happy but just do not forget about making yourself happy in the process.

Let’s face it: from time to time, everyone has thought about the idea of how to hypnotize someone and become a hypnotist. It looks appealing and quite frankly it sounds appealing. Everyone is looking for unique and outside the box ways to make friends, keep friends, and catch the attention of the public. What better way to do that than by becoming a hypnotist? It is a tremendous conversation starter and really catches the attention of those around you at parties.
One of the most important aspects of being a hypnotist and having the ability to hypnotize someone is belief. It might sound simple, but one would be shocked at how often this is overlooked, ignored, or nor taken seriously. One must truly believe that they can do it and it is possible. It all starts with the mind and having that deep seated belief that anything is possible and it can become a reality. That is where it all begins. If one doesn’t believe it, how is anyone else supposed to believe it? Two words that come to mind are belief and conviction. They are both supremely important.
A willing participant is also needed in this quest as well as the proper training, schooling, and teaching. It is just like anything in life, it needs to be learned and the proper amount of time must be put into it. It cannot be rushed, hurried, or forced upon someone. By having a willing participant, that is also half the battle as you are dealing with someone who takes it seriously and isn’t just going to laugh in the face of the hypnotist or look at them like they are crazy, which they clearly aren’t.
Another avenue in becoming well on their way is research, research, research. The more they know, the better off they will be in the long run and the more information that will be at the disposal of the person looking to become a hypnotist. They won’t find themselves in over their heads or confused by what is going on. They will be prepared and ready for anything that comes their way.
As one can clearly read and discover, this can and will become a reality with the proper tools at their disposal. It can be a life changing talent and also a gift that helps people overcome issues or addictions that run through their body each and every day. It is a wonderful gift and a tremendous talent.
