[FWD: Gazette endorses Yokoyama for Cook County State's Attorney]

Here is the link to the endorsement: http://www.gazettechicago.com/index/2012/11/gazette-endorsement-state%E2%80%99s-attorney

Note, Alvarez fought the DNA testing for two additional years (he spent 17 years behind jail) that ultimately exonerated Mr. Nash.  But for an Appellate Court Judge ordering the test, an innocent man would still be in jail. In light of the DNA testing, Alvarez knew that the evidence introduced at the original trial would be insufficient to convict Mr. Nash and that is why she dropped the charges-but only after he spent an additional two years in jail.

What is Hypnosis and How Does it Work

What is Hypnosis and How Does it Work?

Here is a dictionary definition:

 Hypnosis is the induction of a state of consciousness in which a person is tremendously conscious of suggestion or direction.

 Going into a bit more detail though, you could say that hypnosis is often over exaggerated. The term Hypnosis is used to describe a trance like state.

However, in reality we all go in and out of mild œtrances every day; such as in those moments when our minds wander and we fantasize, we even enter a hypnosis like state when we simply sit down to read a magazine and give it our full attention - going into a mini trance and blocking the rest of the world out.

These trance like states, and they are all safe and natural. All hypnosis does is put you into one of these mild œtrance states purposefully , and over time the hypnotist plants simple, beneficial messages into your subconscious mind.

You are never actually asleep, hypnosis is a wakeful state in which you are both relaxed but your mind is focused.

Because of this heightened mind-set it is possible to use hypnosis to rewire your self beliefs and patterns of thinking.

To sum up very briefly it may be said that hypnosis gains access the unconscious mind to eliminate the negative beliefs which hinder personal growth.

What is possible?

Well, it almost a case of what can be done, or what can hypnosis be used for...

Hypnosis has a good reputation for treating phobic disorders and fears, or at least this is the way it first started out. It then began to be used with great success for weight reduction and giving up smoking.

Hypnosis is now used for the elimination of almost any unfavorable belief, it is used to help a wide range of health problems, and is massively effective for increasing self beliefs such as self esteem and confidence.

Get started with hypnosis today - one of the best ways is to go through it for yourself as yes, it still is a subjective experience and results do vary. You can download 3 free hypnosis mp3s from Natural Hypnosis yes, the team that are changing the way hypnosis is practiced!:

for compensation but since then he has failed to make the payment he
is now based in your region with his new family. I will like to hire
