a formal expression of opinion or intention made, usually after voting, by a formal organization, a legislature, a club, or other group. Compare concurrent resolution, joint resolution.
a decision or determination; a resolve: to make a firm resolution to do something. Her resolution to clear her parents' name allowed her no other focus in life.
the act determining upon an action or course of action, method, procedure, etc.; the act of resolving.
firmness of purpose; the mental state or quality of being resolved or resolute: She showed her resolution by not attending the meeting.
the act or process of separating into constituent or elementary parts or resolving.

These are only some of the meanings one can find for this all purpose word.  There are others specific to the medical field, to optics and to computer monitors.  I did not want to list them all but, if you are curious, they are easy to find but they serve little purpose for the theme of this post.  What we are talking about here is the resolution one discovers when it is time to make a change in ones habit patterns and, by extension, in ones life. 
Every person who seeks out assistance in some form in changing a habit has come to a decision of sorts.  The next steps however are those that test one’s resolve.  The hypnotist provides the sub-conscious with the supporting programming that will aid you in making the desired changes, what the hypnotist cannot do is reach inside your brain and flip the appropriate switches to make sure that the changes are permanent.  That’s up to you.  And that is where your resolve comes in. 
As we explain to every client, with every suggestion you get to make a choice of whether to accept or reject the suggestion.  I think that is really important as it provides a safety valve for you.  There is then a very real conversation that takes place in which you decide whether or not to allow these changes to begin.  That is where a kind of passive resolve can come in so very handy.  Deciding from the outset, “I am going to do this and I trust this person to help me.” is the best attitude and will guarantee good results. 
This is the time of year when the common question is, “What resolution did you break already?”
 For the successful hypnosis client that question is very easily answered by, “I am becoming the person I have always been meant to be!”  
May the coming year be lived in the full knowledge that you are a being of beauty and joy.  

I intend to begin posting here after a two year hiatus. 
Sincere Regards,  Phillip Gowins
