Positive Mind Management Training's are mental skills and tools that individuals as clients or students are taught how to manage their minds in positive, healthy, happy, productive ways! The end state of these training's, as we like to say, is to have the individual become a person of emotional steel. meaning they have and are enjoying emotional control, at will. They are to know which skill and tool to use in any given situation to manage their thoughts and emotions to appropriate, successful, desirable, outcomes.
The skills and tools are taught out of the book, "The Emotional Skills and Tools of Positive Mind Management". These incorporate many techniques and protocols of: Hypnosis – Self Hypnosis – Suggestion Hypnotherapy – Clinical Hypnotherapy – Positive Mind Management Hypnotherapy – and Protocols of Adversarial Resistance.
It takes a few weeks to learn these skills and tools as a client and become in emotional and behavioral control, the average person does between four and eight sessions with us to learn these protocols and desensitize from past traumatic events. The side effects of doing certified clinical hypnotherapy with us is that you will experience greater mental, emotional, spiritual, and physical health. You will learn that everything improves as you clean out negative thinking errors and release past stuck and fixated emotions. Fixations are emotions that you feel when you think about a particular memory. You become sad, or mad, fearful and so forth. It takes a lot of energy to hold onto the past. Through the use of ponder, trance, or hypnosis, all three terms are synonymous to us, you can access these subconscious memories and alter the perceptions of them, and desensitize the imagination amplification which releases and collapses the fixed emotions and maladaptive energetic frequencies going through the brain. When accomplished thoroughly with a competent certified clinical hypnotherapist who understands what needs to be done, the Intelligence in your spirits mind resets brain frequencies back to normal, affecting your overall immune system in positive ways.
A Generally Accepted Behavioral Model:
We think it
We feel it
We do it
According to Positive Mind Management:
We are to think with awareness of our thoughts.
We are to analyze and logically assess our thoughts.
When we decide if the thought/idea/belief is right, true, and correct, for us, or not
We either give it subconscious access or we reject it, in effect bounce it out
When subconscious access is allowed
We amplify it in our imagination
We locate memories to justify, validate, and defend it
We feel it
We do it
This video is of Dennis speaking at the Firm Foundation - Book of Mormon Conference this past April
He explains how hypnosis and hypnotherapy is pondering and meditation when done correctly in the clinic, and explains how other positive and dark forces in life that we are exposed to as humans have effect on us. Dennis gives a clear explanations of how the mind works and the benefits of using hypnotherapy for stress, worry, anxiety, or fear, induced behaviors and illnesses and how to overcome such behaviors as pornography.
Again, it is our spirits mind that thinks and so we teach these concepts from a Christian viewpoint of the spirit as that is the viewpoint we know best. Whatever other belief or name you want to give to our spirit or that part of us that animates us and makes us think, move, and breathe, feel free to do so, but here we are identifying it as our, Intelligence.
The reason we teach from this Christian basis is that this is all about our spirits mind, which is the part of us that thinks, and overcoming 'thinking errors' housed in our spirits mind. It is our spirits mind that thinks and then these thoughts are transferred as neurological frequencies generated in the brain. The brain is the body part that connects the mind of our spirit to the physical body (brain), and then the brain operates as the frequency center controlling the body electric, or immune system energy as we like to call it.
What you will learn here and at CHTS is that the ultimate in energy work is our Certified Clinical Hypnotherapy and our Positive Mind Management Hypnotherapy Protocols when accomplished in the ways we teach it. You will learn to assist yourself and others manage their minds belief system thoughts at both conscious and subconscious levels. When you take control of your thoughts and thinking patterns intentionally, you are controlling energetic frequencies in the brain and body. Thoughts are frequencies in the brain, and the energy generated by these thoughts are what is identified as emotions, emotions are the immune system frequencies that either promote positive healing, or negative energies knocking the normal immune frequencies off regular healthy frequencies and creating dis-ease or disease. When you learn to assist yourself or your clients cleanse their negative thoughts, you are re-setting compromised immune frequencies back into frequency states of health and healing.
Where do these powerful emotions come from that drive our behaviors?
Our emotions drive our behaviors because we tend to behave the way we feel.
Positive Mind Management has to do with the premise that we have a spirit within, a soul if you, or inner-self, or whatever you wish to call that part of us that animates us as physical beings, and leaves when we die. Each of us has as part of our inner spiritual beings a mind, some want to call it our higher self or other such names, but we want to call it our ' Intelligence', that guides our thoughts and directs our brains, and then our brain directs our body. It moves from place to place in our spirits mind, 'thinking'. It moves from consciousness which is outward observation, learning and focus, being present or mindful, to our subconscious imagination where amplification of any thought, belief, or idea can be enlightened and expanded. Then to searching our memories to justify with validating data the thoughts and beliefs we have already accepted as truth. The degree to which we amplify a given thought/belief/idea in our imagination plus the frequency with which we recall data from our memories to validate that thought/belief/idea yields the level of emotional content that we feel and call our emotions. The amount of emotions we feel drives the extent of or the extreme nature of our behaviors.

Version of the Emotional Skills and Tools Children's Version of the Emotional Skills and Tools
Positive Mind Management Clinical Hypnotherapy protocols of how to utilize our spirits mind functions to manage our thoughts, thus controlling the brain and body, emotions and behaviors, have been learned by W. Dennis Parker CHTS through attending training in hypnotherapy school and developed over the past 30 years through observations in thousands of Clinical Hypnotherapy sessions and additional inspirational insights.
Dennis explains that he has received insights into how our spirit's mind works and the functions of the subconscious mind, especially how the imagination works. The imagination is a key component to behaviors and is mentioned in the scriptures over 40 times.
Understanding the imagination and knowing how to intentionally adjust it is a powerful key to Positive Mind Management Clinical Hypnotherapy. It is this understanding of the mind and how the imagination affects each component of the subconscious mind, of memories and emotions, that gives us a personal control point over our emotions. When it is understood that the imagination can turn emotions up or down, as a dial in the subconscious, you can start to use it to control such things as fears, anger, inappropriate pornographic arousal, and such things as food cravings. All emotions can be more or less controlled in this manner. Pornography is an imagination problem, as they turn the imagination up on an image they are simultaneously, proportionately, turning up inappropriate arousal.. This is a key to how we get such quick results with clients in overcoming such behaviors.
Here is an actual Positive Mind Management session that we have been given permission from the parents to air in an effort to assist more people understand the quick results in behaviors that can be achieved through these processes.
Please take the time to watch Calleigh overcome 'anxieties and fears' that have plagued her for many years now as a 10 year old youth. Children and adults that have been stuck in their subconscious can have their Intelligence get fixated in the subconscious imaginations and memories causing such problems as: bed-wetting, anxiety, fears, phobias, social anxiety, seek pornographic arousal, and many others. Please read, Spiritual Mind Management by W. Dennis Parker, attend some of our upcoming Seminars/Workshops/Webinars and learn these exceptionally valuable mind management skills and tools to assist yourself and your children learn to control their thoughts and emotions. Enjoy the learning as you watch an actual session of Dennis working with a youth who is having many emotional and behavioral issues.
Positive Mind Management Principles:
- Principle - Our Spirit Has a Mind – Our Spirit Mind Controls the Brain, Thought and Emotion Frequencies, then the Brain Controls the Frequencies controlling the Body – (Abraham 3 – D&C 93) it is to be understood that our spirits mind and its functions can be utilized correctly to make immediate behavioral modifications that are permanent in nature, and can be controlled by each individual. Individuals learn to manage their own minds with their God given abilities of agency and choice, to choose correctly according to the dictates of their conscience, and prompting of the Holy Ghost or Holy Spirit.
Quotes: Daniel H. Ludlow
“According to the Prophet Joseph Smith, our minds or intelligence's—those parts of our being with which we think and make choices and determine actions—have always existed.
Concerning this the Prophet said: The mind or the intelligence which man possesses is co-equal with God himself. . . .
The intelligence of spirits had no beginning; neither will it have an end . . . . There never was a time when there were not spirits; for they are co-equal [that is, co-eternal] with our Father in heaven. . . .
Intelligence is eternal and exists upon a self-existent principle. It is a spirit from age to age, and there is no creation about it. [ Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith , comp. Joseph Fielding Smith (Salt Lake City: Deseret Book Co. 1938),
pp. 353, 354]
Thus the capacity of choice, which is a most essential element in free agency, has evidently always been part of our being. In the process of time each of our intelligences was clothed with a spiritual body by heavenly parents, and we became personages of spirits with bodies of eyes and ears and hands and feet. All of us on this earth had the same Father of our spiritual bodies, and because he lives in heaven we have been rightfully taught to refer to him as “our Father in Heaven.”
The Daniel H. Ludlow was director of correlation for Internal Communications of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints when this devotional address was given at Brigham Young University on 2 July 1974.
Quote: Pollution of the Mind - Robert L. Simpson
“Before drawing the breath of life on this earth, we were all spiritual beings living in the realm of God, the Eternal Father. Scripture reveals that even before our spiritual birth, each of us had individual identification as an intelligence. Before all else could take place, there had to be that beginning spark of light, that spark of intelligence or, if you please, the marvelous mechanism that controls our every thought, that controls our every act. We might think of this spark of intelligence as perhaps the nucleus of a human mind.
No wonder it has been said: “As a man thinketh, so is he.” The master control center within each individual must be regarded as the key. Signals flashing out to the various parts of the body bring instant reaction; in sum and substance, this center dictates the character, the conscience, the strength, and yes, evens the weaknesses of every man.”
(2) Principle – Our Spirits Mind is compartmentalized – Double Minded vs. Single Minded
Double Mindedness -
“a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”
Conscious Mind - Subconscious Mind
Two Minds – Double Minded
– Consciousness is experienced when the Intelligence is in the conscious compartment, ahead of the Critical Factor Belief System Filter. The critical factor filter divides the conscious mind from the subconscious mind and is the storage area of our beliefs. We will discuss this at great length later
When the intelligence is in the conscious compartment,we all think about the same and have a similar response to a particular stimulus experience. For example let’s say it’s snowing outside, and we have to leave to go work. We all wear a coat, change our leather shoes to our neoprene soled shoes, or we wear are rubber shoes, we leave for work early as we know that traffic is going to be slower. We all consciously think about the same and make similar adjustments to given a given stimulus.
Being conscious is to be present, living in the here and now. Intentionally being conscious is the best place to live our lives from moment to moment as it is where we will see life in greatest clarity and understanding. When we are conscious the whole world looks more scenic, more beautiful, more panoramic, we are paying attention to details, the shapes of things, the colors and shading, the general appearance of things is sharper, clearer, focused. It is the state psychologists want to call being mindful.
When we visit the temple grounds in full consciousness we don’t just see an array of colors in the flower beds, but we notice individual peddles of the flowers, individual leaves, and different fragrances. We notice the trees and the shapes of the trees and different types of trees and leaves. When we look at the clouds we notice the dark part of the clouds being on the bottom where they are shaded from the upper sunshine, and you notice the light part of the clouds being on the top where the sun is directly shining upon them. Everything is brighter, clearer, sharper, more scenic, more panoramic, more beautiful, when we are consciously observing and learning in consciousness.
- Subconscious functions are experienced when the Intelligence moves or travels to the subconscious compartments of: (a) Imagination (b) Memories (c) Emotions
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: (Old Testament | Proverbs 23:7)
In the Subconscious we may have rationalized, incongruent, stinking thinking from previous experience stimulus and decisions that is in opposition to what we believe and want to achieve consciously.
This incongruent thinking at the different levels of mind creates opposing forces within us. So sometimes we respond with our conscious beliefs and actions, and then other times with our subconscious beliefs and actions, CREATING INSTABILITY!IF WE HAD TO PICK ONE BUCKET TO PUT ALL OF THE EMOTIONAL AND BEHAVIORAL PROBLEMS IN IT WOULD BE LABELED THE “INSTABILITY BUCKET”!
We need to align the Minds top and bottom and when we do we become what the scriptures call being Single Minded - Stable!
(3) Principle – Our Intelligence Moves within Our Spirits Mind - we call this, “thinking”
29 “Man was also in the beginning with God . Intelligence, or the light of truth , was not created or made, neither indeed can be.
30 All truth is independent in that sphere in which God has placed it, to act for itself, as all intelligence also; otherwise there is no existence. (The Intelligence has been placed in the sphere of our Spirits Mind) 31 Behold, here is the agency of man, and here is the condemnation of man; because that which was from the beginning is plainly manifest unto them, and they receive not the light.”
Each of us has as part of our inner spiritual being an Intelligence within our spiritual mind that guides our thoughts and directs our brains, then our brain directs our body. It moves from place to place in our spiritual mind. It moves from consciousness which is outward observation, learning, focus and choice, to our subconscious imagination where amplification of any thought, belief, or idea can be enlightened and expanded. Then to searching our memories to justify with validating data the thoughts and beliefs we have already accepted as truth. When our Intelligence in is consciousness you are not in your subconscious functions of imaginations, memories, or emotions. It is as though they do not exist.
Positive Mind Management processes eliminate the inappropriate behaviors generated by maladaptive, negative, emotions. We receive referrals daily from local ecclesiastical leaders to assist couples in floundering relationships and young people who are preparing for missions to overcome pornographic influences, and attendant maladaptive behaviors. We receive referrals for all types of behavioral modifications to teach individuals, couples, and families, these powerful mind management techniques.

Weeding the Garden of Your Mind of Double Mindedness
Have you ever asked, “How can anyone do such a thing to someone else, or to themselves?” Or, “Why do I keep doing what I do, even when I know I ought not to be doing it?” What are the keys to real behavioral change? How would learning the skills of behavioral modification being offered here change yours and your loved ones lives? What if you had the knowledge and skills to assist others to: control unwanted emotions, be free of pornography, have enhanced learning abilities and test taking relaxation skills, enjoy increased self-esteem and personal self-confidence, enhance sports performance, be free of fears and phobias, stop smoking, loose that unwanted weight once and for all, enjoy pain control reducing your pain levels, living a more enjoyable life, and change a mired of other personal behaviors and attributes for the best?
We want to teach you a key principle of positive behavioral modification and change as an example of our course work. We teach students and clients how to overcome double mindedness. James 1:8 says, “a double minded man is unstable in all his ways.” We propose the double mindedness spoken of here is the in-congruent predominant thought thinking errors that we have logged in our subconscious mind, that are in opposition to the goal achieving desires that we have in our conscious mind . When we have in-congruent thinking and opposite beliefs at our conscious and subconscious states of mind it creates opposing forces within us, “ instability ”. We want to move forward, achieve new goals, be our best self, consciously, and yet as we hold opposing in-congruent thoughts and beliefs in the subconscious mind, we experience inhibitions, hesitations, and we procrastinate. We are unstable in all our ways!
There is an area between the two minds called the Critical Faculty or Critical Factor which is the area of our belief systems. It is a filter to the subconscious mind. When we do conscious critical, analytical, logical thinking, and we accept a thought as being right, true and correct for us, we allow it to pass through the critical factor into our subconscious functions of imaginations, memories, and emotions. Once the thought belief is in the subconscious it will generate a behavior. The extreme to which demonstrate the behavior depend on how much amplification of our imagination we apply to the thought belief, and how much justifying, validating data, we can come up with in our memories to prove to ourselves that we are right in our chosen belief. The amount of amplification and justification is the amount of emotional content we experience as our feelings, driving the behavior, because we behave the way we feel.
The “KEY” is that it requires hypnosis, trance, or pondering, (all three are synonymous to us) to penetrate the critical factor filter barrier and access the in-congruent thinking errors being held in the subconscious. It requires skills and training in trance to know which hypnotic level (because there are six observable trance states that we utilize in hypnotherapy, and hypnotherapy is a general term which is descriptive of three major categories: Suggestion Hypnotherapy, Clinical Hypnotherapy, and Spiritual Mind Management Hypnotherapy) is going to work best to challenge and change the newly found thinking errors. Once these thinking errors are challenged and changed appropriately and brought into alignment with conscious goal driven thinking, being single-minded, people now move forward in life fulfilling their dreams and goals more rapidly than ever before imagined possible.
We use the metaphor that what we are doing is weeding the garden of our mind. Let’s say we have a major thinking error, a big weed in our garden. (I am not good enough, or smart enough, or capable enough, or pretty or handsome enough, and so forth.) In conscious or cognitive therapy, we may whack away at the leaves above the ground, we may break off branches, and with sufficient time, we might even chop it down to the ground with enough logical and analytical reasoning. But, without hypnosis or trance access to the subconscious root and the training to know how to actually pull the root all the way out, when the individual experiences a similar stimulating event that generated the behavior producing thought processes in the first place, the root is stimulated again and simply grows back, and so does the behavior. Such is the case with yo-yo dieting. So a major key to behavioral modification hypnotherapy is the ability to get to the root of problem thinking errors and overcoming double minded instabilities!
