Postpartum Problems

Welcome back my dear Hypnolings, Today I wanted to discuss a very serious and widespread issue which has a tendency to sucker-punch so many vulnerable and unsuspecting women AND men. These issues sneak up on so many new parents and it turns what should be one of the happiest events in their lives into a [...]

Mail Call: How to Deal with Passive Aggressives.

Greetings Hypnolings, ast week I mentioned that during my most recent hiatus I had received hundreds of emails asking why I had stopped the blog. I always responded that I had simply said what was on my mind up to that point and that I was just out of ideas. That’s when the suggestions started [...]

When You Just Have to Suck It Up.

Long overdue greeting my Hypnolings, Just when you thought it was safe to go back onto the internet, up I pop again. Actually, it has been a period of great upheaval and a TON of work and learning, and you, my Hypnolings have always been in the back of my mind. In fact, there were [...]

Grief, Laughter and Healing

Greetings my dear Hypnolings, I suppose my prolonged silence qualifies this as Rich’s Blog 3.1, but we ’ll call the past few weeks ‘research’ and give ourselves the benefit of the doubt. If the English theologian John Ray is correct and ‘The road to Hell is paved with good intentions,” that makes me a highway [...]

Matching your Reach to your Grasp

Greetings Hypnolings. I know it’s been a while since my last post and this issue has been much on my mind. The good part is that I have come to a realization…now all I have to do is act on it and keep up the practice. Let me explain. Our house was stuffed to the [...]

Teaching Those Who Know it All

Greetings Hypolings. Welcome back to another installment of random anecdotes, recollections, and parables, unashamedly intended to manipulate you off your butt and get you back into the thick of the game. Because, when it comes to your life, this is it; you don’t get a dress rehearsal. Yesterday was a holiday for many in the [...]

Being a Spectator in Your Own Life

Welcome back Hypnolings, time for another irregularly scheduled edition of Rich’s Blog 3.0. Have you ever had an experience where you hear or read something and you think, “YES; EXACTLY!” and then when you’re most excited, you realize the person meant the comment in exactly the opposite way that you understood it? Happened to me [...]

The Beauty of Brokenness

Hypnosis is an amazingly powerful and effective tool. In fact, the Yahoo search I just ran returned 11,500,000 hits for “Effectiveness of Hypnotherapy”, so in the face of that amount of evidence, I think even the most ardent skeptic would have to admit that when we say “Sleep,” something powerful happens. As amazing and effective [...]

Politics, Life and Choices

Greetings Hypnolings and welcome to another installment in Rich Dama’s Blog 3.0. I apologize for the spotty posting schedule this past two weeks. My wife underwent a medical procedure which occupied a lot of time caring for her, and as the Director of a large juvenile detention and treatment center, we are in the midst [...]

The Liberating Power of Forgiveness

Let’s face it, no matter how squared-away you may be in most areas of your life, I am willing to wager that deep down you harbor one or two special hurts or negative memories that you continue to carry like a cask of precious jewels. You hate how the memory makes you feel, but you [...]
