(B.A. Erickson and B. Keeney, Milton Erickson: An American Healer, April, 2006, pp.270-275)
Milton Erickson was the last great psychiatric hypnotist. In an unbroken line from Mesmer to Freud, he taught the critical importance of trance states: those states in which learning and openness to change are most likely to occur. Daydreams, meditations, prayers, being “in-the zone,” or hypnotic inductions are all states in which we see things from beyond our ordinary consciousness. It is in trance states that people intuitively understand the meaning of dreams, symbols and archetypes.
Erickson was a well-known psychiatrist by the 1960s. He was the founding editor of the American Society of Clinical Hypnosis; he hypnotized Aldous Huxley in the 50’s and collaborated with him. Margaret Mead, the distinguished cultural anthropologist, studied with him for more than 40 years. But I never heard a word about him when I was in medical school at the Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, or in my residency at Yale in New Haven, Connecticut. Psychiatry was beginning to move toward neuro-chemical explanations for the gamut of the human experience. Hypnosis and trance states were relegated to romantic myths of an archaic age.
I discovered Erickson only after joining the Indian Health Service in the mid-1960’s. I spent twenty years in Indian country, most of them as Chief of Psychiatry at the Phoenix Indian Medical Center. Working with Native American medicine men, I saw things for which my training had not prepared me. Traditional healers could cure patients in varying states of psychological disintegration, in ways I’d never been taught in medical school.
Using ceremonies, myths and sacred objects, I saw Shaman cure the disabled and the psychotic. The hypnotic fires of all-night meetings, with drumbeat and prayer songs, the weaving of ritual, myth and symbols into ceremonies of awesome healing power — I didn’t understand a word of the spoken language, but I could feel its impact. The symbolic world clearly opened up channels to the unconscious mind. Their dramatic power changed people faster than I could with drugs and psychotherapy.
This process was difficult to explain in the traditional language of psychiatry (projection, incorporation, identification). It was only when I met Erickson that I began to understand and ultimately learn to speak this nontraditional language. I discovered Erickson through the writings of Jay Haley. When I learned he lived in Phoenix, I sought him out. Here was a psychiatrist who understood my experiences with clarity and translated what I was seeing into a profound awakening that had enormous practical application in my work.
Erickson revealed to me these guiding principles of healing:
1. A healer will see beyond a patient’s pathology, illuminate and mobilize his strengths, and help him move beyond his limitations;
2. Find ways to open up a channel into the unconscious mind and get patients to see their reality differently. Using stories, symbols, shared myths, and prescribing rituals, ceremonies, even ordeals, healers get people to look at the familiar in new ways.
3. Uniquely craft a healing experience for each individual in which both the patient and the healer are totally involved in the experience. There is no dispassionate, distant, unavailable transferential object to work through one’s neurosis.
Erickson was proud of the factor that he had Indian blood. He sponsored a scholarship at Phoenix College for Native American students who retain the practices and language of their tribal traditions. He was the keeper of a Navajo medicine bundle (ji’ ish) which contained the medicine man’s most sacred healing totems. In all my years in Indian country, I had never seen the contents of an entire one. I asked Erickson if he had ever looked inside it, and he said with a twinkle, “You get to see everything, when it’s time.”
A healer is more than a good doctor. A good doctor can make the diagnosis and prescribe the appropriate treatment; a great doctor can make the diagnosis, treat the patient and also add a preventative component that teaches the patient how to avoid exposure to trauma and pathogens. A healer can do all of that and, in addition, make a personal connection with the patient in such a way that touches them at a soul level.
How did Erickson get initiated into the shamanic journey? He got polio at age 18 and suddenly found himself paralyzed. Unable to move, it gave him time to observe people and learn to understand and speak the language of nonverbal communication. It was the beginning of his appreciation of the principle of utilization. It didn’t matter what happened to you, only that you learned something from it, which was its own reward. ?Playing the hand you’d been dealt meant that what was once a curse could become a blessing. Erickson never stopped learning. At 57 he was stricken with post-polio syndrome and learned to face the world with slurred speech and weakened muscles.
All healers have the capacity to see things from beyond an ordinary perspective. When?healers look at patients, they see not only their pathology (Western medicine’s forte), but also look inside and identify their strengths. They use whatever symbols and language the patient speaks, in order to mobilize those strengths and move them beyond their limitations. Everything in the natural universe has potential for symbolic value, because symbols acquire meaning only when you supply them with their power.
A friend of mine watched a Navajo Roadman (a spiritual leader in the Native American Church) take out a fluid-filled vial and sprinkle some drops onto a patient. Later, my friend asked the healer, what the stuff was that he sprinkled on the man. The Roadman said it was very powerful medicine and then dropped the subject. The next morning, while my friend was taking a drink from a water bottle, the Roadman took it from him and poured a few drops from the bottle into a teaspoon. Holding the bottle in one hand, and the teaspoon in the other, the Road Man looked at the bottle and said, “If you drink this when you are thirsty its water.” Then, turning to the teaspoon he said, “When you need it for healing its medicine.” Symbols only have meaning when what you bring to them supplies then with power.
Erickson knew that if you look again at everything you know, you might see it from another perspective. If you can move beyond your ordinary consciousness, and suspend your preconceptions, you can create new endings to old stories.
All healers find ways to penetrate into the unconscious without direct interpretation. They know that conscious mechanisms of defense can keep patients from understanding the most insightful interpretation. Healers create a symbolic language that speaks uniquely to each patient and illuminates the undefended areas of the mind. Using stories, rituals, ceremonies, even ordeals, healers make a connection with a patient’s soul that opens up channels of healing.
Early in his career, Milton worked at Worcester State Hospital in Rhode Island. One of the patients was a harmless catatonic schizophrenic who was called “Jesus Christ #1.” Having ground privileges, JC #1 wandered the campus draped in a white bed-sheet prayer shawl blessing everything and everyone. One day, when Milton was out walking, he came upon JC #1 who said to him, “Blessings on you my son.” Milton thanked him, and then told him he was also seeking a blessing for the other doctors at the hospital. They needed to take a break from their strenuous work and exercise. They needed to replenish themselves so they could take care of patients. Unfortunately, the tennis courts were not in good shape. He told JC #1 that he understood he had the power to bless things and make them beautiful. These tennis courts were God’s creation and he could save them and the doctors. JC #1 said he was here to serve mankind and if Milton could get him the right tools, he could do the job. ?JC #1 became the court-keeper, gardener and carpenter; he kept the grounds beautifully and was greeted by the entire hospital community with respect and appreciation. If you can speak the patient’s language, you can tell the story in a way that helps them mobilize their strengths.
All healers create sacred space for their work. This does not mean a religious tabernacle, but a place that is different from ordinary space. A setting that invites people to come in and open themselves up in a way that encourages a soulful connection. Milton’s waiting room and office were filled with magical symbols — a dried stingray was twisted into a crucifix and hung from the ceiling. On a bookshelf was a pelvic bone that looked like a skull with flashing lights for eyes, and everything came with a story. This was a sacred space that encouraged the journey into the unexplored mind.
All healers create a partnership with their patients. They understand that it is both of them together who make the healing work happen, and that there are lots of other helpers (people, flowers, animals, fire, and drumbeat). Everything in the natural world provides the symbols that can intensify one’s healing power. Milton didn’t mind if some saw him as odd; he thought it was a blessing that helped him see the world from a unique perspective.
Healers do not separate themselves from the therapeutic experience, they are right there with the patient. They are not detached, unresponsive, trasferential objects; they are totally involved in the event.
A friend of Erickson’s asked him to visit his aunt if he ever spoke in her city. The aunt had become increasingly depressed and now was reclusive. She no longer went to church or spoke to anyone. When Erickson was in her city, he visited her in her home and asked if she would guide him around. Slowly, she led him from room to room. In one of them, he noticed three well cared for African violets. Each was a different color and next to them was an empty pot in which she was clearly going to propagate another plant. This lady was a talented horticulturist, and Erickson told her he knew these were delicate plants and easily destroyed by the slightest neglect. He said he wanted to prescribe something for her, but before he did so, he wanted her word that she would fill it. She agreed to do it.
He told her that there were 13 different hues of African violets and that she was to go to a specific florist who needed a talented African violet lady to help save them. Then he told her to purchase pots and transplant leaves to grow more. When she had an adequate supply he wanted her to put one in a gift pot and send one to every baby born to a member of her church. Then, to every member of her church who was hospitalized. She kept her promise and moved beyond her despair.
To totally participate in the healing event does not always involve preparing for the event; it just requires spontaneity and a willingness to take creative leaps of faith.
Erickson was a healer. He provided me with a structure that helped me move beyond my boundaries and own my own power. He encouraged me, as he did all his students, to tell the story our own way, and not mimic his; to be authentic and use whatever works into our healing repertoire.
On one of our last times together, I gave him a Hopi Sun Kachina and told him it reminded me of his influence on me. He provided the light that helped me shift my need for certainty and enjoy the free-flight into the unconscious, where the magic of our work is realized.
There has been a lot of talk about embedding technology in the classroom. One can just imagine the benefits of having technology in the classroom. Students can maximize their output in class and yield much better results and can guarantee that students will pursue their subjects with more interest and learn their subjects better.
But introducing technology into the classroom has also come under heavy criticism. Critics have a lot of points against induction of technology into the classroom. Their concerns do address a lot of issues and problems.
First of all, the role of technology is to enhance the experience of education. Technology should be used to aid education and introduce interest. Technology here is not the focus, but the catalyst. Even the aim of inducting technology into the classroom is not to bring in computer literacy, but to improve the classroom attendance, especially in countries with poor educational facilities.
So focus should be such that technology is engineered to fit the role of a catalyst than being a focus. Technology should supplement education, not surpass it.
First of all, the operating system of laptops used should be engineered to be as student-friendly as possible. Students should be able to use them easily. The Operating System needs to be engineered in such a way that there is effective control. Access to the internet should be properly controlled and monitored. In fact, if it were possible, a separate network should be made where students and teachers all over the world can submit informative content. That way the network can be monitored, pornographic and useless content may be kept off this network and students and teachers would have access to a lot of information and reference material.
These would address the problems of misuse and help the training of students and teachers in using the technology.
Improvements must be made in the design so that minimum power is used and it can be produced cheaply. The technology should be made as green as possible and should be recycled and refurbished and reused after a student is done with his/her studies. There should be an annual or bi-annual upgrade of systems so that the capability is enhanced and the student can learn more.
Even though most learning should take place with technology. Examinations as far as possible must be conducted by hand. We cannot let students lose track of their writing skills.
There are far more problems which are to be identified and dealt with before we can successfully induct technology into the classroom. Only after we solve all issues can we introduce technology and enhance student performance.
The Max Burton 6000 Induction Cooktop is a 1800 watt portable electric cooktop that is safe to use because it does not have any flames and stay cool to the touch.

In the foodservice industry, quality food is not only prepared with precision and control, but must also be served hot, fresh and fast. Induction buffet warmers are ideal equipment for dining establishments and events that serve food buffet-style, during which dishes must be kept warm in order to maintain their straight-from-the-kitchen freshness and quality. Read on to learn more about the benefits of induction buffet warmers, as well as types of warmers and accessories, and other induction heating technology that is continually changing the way foodservice professionals cook and serve food.
Benefits of Induction Buffet Warmers:
Prepared foods that sit out for long periods of time without a heating source can become cold, soggy and unappetizing, not to mention the risk of possible health code violations. Induction buffet warmers provide advanced induction performance with greater electrical convenience. This allows your front-of-house to operate smoothly, holding food at consistent temperatures and keeping your buffet area in compliance with health codes. Traditional buffet methods that involve open flames can be dangerous. The surface of induction warmers remains cool to the touch, minimizing burns and injuries and simplifying the cleanup process. Warmers with advanced electronics and heating technology do not need a cooling fan, resulting in whisper-quiet operation that does not disrupt the dining atmosphere.
Induction Buffet Warmer Designs and Accessories:
When food is on display, buffet warmers must have attractive, unobtrusive designs that fit seamlessly into the front of house dining and work space. Simple, easy-to-use designs allow for buffet warmers to be left alone to warm food, while the staff can focus on quality customer service. Invisible under counter mounted buffet systems allow you to keep food hot and fresh without having to cut holes in your countertops, and feature various temperature and power controls for accurate heating. Some common buffet warming accessories include trivets and chafing dishes.
Induction Heating Technology:
Induction cooking and heating are advanced methods of preparing and serving food. Induction technology uses an electromagnetic current to excite and heat the pan directly, similar to how heat is generated when rubbing one’s hands together. The cooking surface remains cool to the touch, increasing safety in the kitchen, while precise controls and even heating allows for perfectly cooked meats, sauces, pastas, desserts and more. Induction technology also wastes less energy than gas or electric cooking methods, making the kitchen more energy-efficient and lowering utility bills. In addition to induction cooking equipment and induction buffet warmers, there are also advanced food delivery systems that use induction heating to keep food hot and fresh during delivery.

A reputable induction lighting manufacturer is a profession that is fairly new, and only in the last few years now have their lighting products slowly become the choice that businesses use for their lighting needs. The new technology that is being developed by induction lighting manufacturers further makes it cost effective along with doing its part to keep the environment safe and clean. Using induction lighting for your business, whether it be a large warehouse or small office, can add up to a tremendous savings over time and can even pay for itself with the amount of uptime that is produced. Induction lighting manufacturers use and follow strict standards to keep the ballasts that are manufactured by them complying with Federal regulation.
If you are interested in upgrading to this lighting for the cost effective nature that it provides, your first step will be to conduct a search online. You will want to find some of the retailers that have partnered with the manufacturer to resell induction lighting systems to the public. Make sure that the company you are going to be working with is committed to offering the best possible lighting systems available along with dedicated customer service. The process of purchasing from induction lighting manufacturer or one of the retailers who resell their lighting systems can give you the best possible price and one of the most energy efficient.
There are several major advantages to using induction lighting. Looking at just a few, most consumers agree the systems consume a very low level of energy compared with other forms of lighting, yet still have the same comparable capabilities. They consume less electricity therefore less emissions are created from making that the electricity to power the induction lighting system, whatever type of fuel that was used to make the electricity is brought down to a minimum, which is the best possible scenario for the environment. Oftentimes, throughout the course of the year there can be a savings of up to 50% of your regional lighting bills along with seeing a noticeable difference at tax time because of the many new laws and tax breaks that are helping Americans get through trying times during this down turn in the economy.
Competitive operating structures and statistics are being tested at regular intervals to attest to the fact that induction lighting manufacturers have consumers best interests in mind when putting thousands of dollars into research for the most affective and green product that can have an impact for generations to come.

One disadvantage that will most probably tire you out is that they’re very hard to tidy up. Many people have tried genuinely hard to scuff the stainless steel or porcelain on the cookery outdoor as a way to keep it spotless and clean. Moreover, the usual warmth discoloration that comes out whenever regularly used could be very visible on the exterior. Even the grates of the cooktop are challenging to preserve new and dirt-free. That is why grates has to be cleansed in the dishwasher for the rubber grommets can easily rinse out. But the grates can likewise get corrosion whenever cleansed in the dishwasher as well.You have the ability to personalize the preparation location of the unit. The name for this is called the domino unit. The function of the only and paired parts is what type makes this possible.For the most up-to-date innovation, you could be curious about the induction series. This Thermador cooktop utilizes powerful magnets to build heat, enabling a preparing process without needing any direct heat source. Thermador offers 5 designs in engaging designs: silver mirrored conclude and black with chrome steel frame. Models are available in selections of 30″ (4 elements) and 36″ (5 elements). Induction Thermador cooktop may heat 50% quicker than the traditional fuel cooktop. The cooktop collection attributes touch manage panel with blue light illumination with 17 power settings. The anti-overflow system avoids spills by spontaneously shutting off and an alarm system will warn you whenever fluid are detected on the surface. For safety, the cooktop also attributes a child safety lock.Induction cooktops involve more power. When you have a 30″ cooktop presently, you a lot more than doubtless have a 30 amp breaker. Most 30″ induction cooktops would require a forty amp service. You may at least future have need of an electrician to make this work.If you need to boil multiple vessel at a time, make certain to determine about strength discussing on induction cooktops. One or two cooktops will solely be able to produce a boil on just one burner although some are being used. This may be issue for large families or for those who rent caterers to cook for dinner parties, etc. Having mentioned this, there are actually products accessible that your able to boil more than one pot at a time. Make certain you know those designs that can.

If you are considering the purchase of an induction technology light system for your building, but are still on the fence with your decision, you probably need some more information about the benefits of using this new technology. All lighting is certainly not the same, and in actuality, certain types of lights are suitable for certain types of situations and those that are suitable for one may not be suitable for another.
First of all, one of the most common reasons that people decide to purchase this type of lighting is because it offers a much lower energy consumption level than traditional lighting does. In addition, this means that induction light systems are very cost efficient, and can potentially save users thousands of dollars per year on their energy bills. This idea and many others that are thought of will increase your productivity, and as long as you reinvest what you have gained, you will continue to grow.
Aside from being the most affordable of most lighting systems, induction lights are being used standardly in new construction. This is due to the extremely minimal voltages that they run on. This becomes a domino effect and ultimately will help reduce our carbon footprint on the environment and society as a whole. With the green revolution in full swing these days, it is more important than ever to support the movement so that consumers who also are worried about our planet will support you as one of the companies they favor.
There are many different new businesses that implement different scenarios and specifications when designing a system, but in general there are three main parts to the induction technology. The bulb as it is called is an air tight class cylinder trapped with a mix of gasses, and it works as a partnership with a coupling unit and transformer, which then goes to a generator for initial lighting and control. This is basically how the light is produced, with various voltages and settings to further extend the capabilities of the system.
One of the most popular features is the fact that induction technology lasts for a minimum of 100,000 hours of operation and it is veryreliable to say the least. The wattage of different systemswill vary in in strength and is usually at least half the energy that would have to be used used to run regular bulbs. In addition, maintenance free operation along with it gives consumers the best product for their money when they invest in a good induction technology lighting system.
