Once again I am bringing you some wisdom from my new lover boy, Russell. Russell is the dude behind the hypnosis I listen to. His website, The Fertile Mind, really is a minefield of information and I highly recommend his newsletters. I usually don’t open newsletters because who has the time?

The clinic has done all they can and it is now down to the patient. Has it worked? So much energy, time and money has gone in to this moment, but you won’t know for a couple of weeks.

You guys, this is great stuff even for those of us not in a TWW. I can easily see how I can apply this across many areas of my life and I am so grateful for the perspective.

I have purchased his package of fertility hypnosis sessions for IVF and it was quite affordable and I am so impressed with his content I am going to check out what else he has on offer. If you think you could benefit from anything like this I highly recommend checking him out.
Keep on thriving friends.
