Hello, I’m Pam Young. That’s how I begin my recordings. All this began when I enrolled in a Ph.D. in obesity at Uni. of New South Wales. At the time I […]
HYPNOSIS MUSINGS – EXAM NERVES – Post A.
I’m resuming my posts today after a long hiatus. As it sometimes takes two or three posts to tell one story, and you consequently have to read backwards, I […]
Giving Up Smoking (moi) Pt. 3
As I have frequently mentioned, giving up cigarette smoking is a very challenging task. You will have a much greater chance of success if you use my script, alter it to suit yourself, and record it in your own voice.
Giving up Smoking (moi) Pt. 2
When I took up smoking again after Dad’s stroke and death (I was 45) I continued to smoke for another 7 years. I had a wonderful bloke. He was […]
Giving up Smoking
As I have already told you I gave up smoking listening to the recording I had made for someone else, just to check if it sounded O.K. At that […]
Smoking Cessation Pt. 2
I beg your pardon, it was a 50% complete abstention rate and a 75% drop in consumption for the people who made their own hypnosis recordings. Oops! Still pretty spectacular.
As I […]
When I began writing posts for my Website I went back to where it all began – in the late 1970’s with my research into smoking and my subsequent book, “Personal […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha: Bill Peach and Nurse Ratched (3)
Bill died a two weeks later.
He died bravely. The nursing staff told me he had undergone a lot of unnecessary pain rather than call them before the pain got out […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha: Bill Peach and Nurse Ratched (Pt. 2)
Every day Bill would see a doctor. I don’t think he saw the same doctor twice. I don’t even think he saw the same nurse twice. He would […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha: Bill Peach and Nurse Ratched (Pt. 1)
I just read an article about a woman trapped in a public hospital trying to transfer to a private hospital for which she had full cover. I decided to write about […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha: A Weekend in the Country (2)
Kevin and the Golfing Surprise.
On the Sunday of the weekend we stayed at the Grand Hotel in Mt. Victoria some of us decided to have a round of golf at the […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha: A Weekend in the Country
Kind of a Fawlty Towers weekend, but also tragic.
I have a very dear friend Kevin. We met when I was 27 and he was 17 – at the old convict gaol, […]
The New Guinea Artisans: Magenta Moment No 2 at U.T.,S. (Pt. 2)
Apologies, folks. Haven’t posted since April due to an unfortunate run of health problems, including a fractured spine. But you can’t keep a good girl down! Toujours gai!
Anecdotes and Apochrypha: The New Guinea Artisans: Magenta Moment No. 2 at U.T.,S.
Stanley Ashmore-Smith was the Assistant Registrar at U.T.,S. and was affronted by the rather sleazy affaire another senior member of staff was having with one of his subordinates. Stan seemed […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha (2). Ross Gittens and Me (Pt.4)
Ross nominated Paul Keating and I think John Howard as the other two best Treasurers, Keating for floating the dollar and Howard for not letting the banks loan money to people […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha (2) – Ross Gittens and Me (Pt. 3)
Ross’s speech was humorous and very well received. He has certainly come out of himself since his more reserved U.T.,S. days.
He has always been extremely even-handed politically, but writing even-handedly […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha(2) – Ross Gittens and Me Pt. 2
At some stage during the morning Ross appeared in the doorway, one of what I call my three magenta moments at U.T.,S. That is, his face colour was somewhere between […]
Anecdotes and Apocrypha (2): Ross Gittens and Me
This is yarn No. 2 after A Night to Remember:
U.T.,S. Student Services Unit was originally located in the old Anthony Hordern’s building, Brickfield Hill, where World Square is today. […]
Experiments of Other People from My Self Hypnosis
I have other stories about my self-hypnosis experiments: the wisdom tooth extractions and the recordings aimed at improving my net game in tennis. But I thought I would digress […]
Experiments on Myself with Self-hypnosis (2)
Sorry folks, been a while. Computer wouldn’t allow me to enter my own website. I affectionately call it Hal, and it reminds me of a horse I used to […]
Experiments on Myself with Self Hypnosis
I decided to allow the first Anecdote to sink in, and to regale you with the self hypnosis experiments I carried out on myself.
The first one, of course, […]
A Night to Remember (cont. v)
Recalling the “Wind in the Willows” and “The Odyssey” I was fascinated by the Stoats and Weasels who invaded Toad Hall in Toad’s absence, and the 108 Suitors who pursued Penelope […]
A Night to Remember (cont. iv)
Yes indeed, what words came out that had such a magical effect? Something apt from “The Merchant of Venice”? I can’t quite see them being inspired by Shylock’s speech […]
A Night to Remember (cont. iii)
They were very respectful and apologetic, returning my handbag, which they had purloined.
They gave me the impression that Robbie had assured them I would be a willing participant in their plans. […]
A Night to Remember (cont.)
They turned right off the Pacific Highway and I later guessed they went into bushland somewhere near Brooklyn. They parked the car in a clearing in the middle of the […]
A Night to Remember or Scheherazade Revisited
When I was 17 years of age I worked at The Land Newspaper as the secretary to the Managing Editor. I had not been there very long when the Queen […]
