In 2005, in conjunction with a Pharmacist colleague, Mr. Nathan Elliott, Rick conducted Australia's first monitored clinical study to evaluate improvements in the quality of life, using hypnosis as an adjunct to conventional medical treatments. The participants of the trial were nine, medical doctor referred and monitored, volunteers suffering various types of cancers at various stages of progression. Both the Clinical and the experiential results were very positive and ethics approval is being sought to conduct a much larger study (all study participants were signed into the trail and monitored independently by their Medical Doctors).
Introduction By Rick Collingwood
There can be no result without thought and effort. The quality of the thought and the strength of the effort always accumulate as an equal and proportional result.
To control your thoughts is to control your own belief system, and also your emotions. Whether for positive or negative results, your emotions are a strong driving force and a very deep well of pure creative energy.
In combination with this, is the reality that you cannot have a feeling without first having a thought. Whether at a conscious or a sub-conscious level, your thoughts create emotional energy which results as your feelings. Your emotions add either positive or negative energy to your action. Hence everything created or enacted in this world beyond the nature realm began simply as a thought. An internal energy empowered with emotional energy, and combined with physical energy to produce a tangible third dimensional result.
Thought. Feeling. Effort. Result. All feeling results from thought. All results come only from effort. When you control your thoughts, you control your emotions. Your emotions are forces of unimaginable power. Changing your sub-conscious mind will change your conscious mind and also your conscious actions.
For humans, this is the only way it can be.
