In May, Michael and I are going on a Transatlantic cruise... again! This one is so cheap that I am not even going to teach belly dance for my passage! Check it out and join us, okay? Don't be fooled by the price though, this ship is just amazing!
I am also planning a course in Palm Springs and a visit to my family in France. Gee, what a life!
Read this newsletter and decide whether or not you are manipulative. Also listen to my hypnosis session in order to create success in your life... and cruise with us in May!
As always, don't hesitate to drop me a line about this issue or the previous ones. Back issues can be found here.

Way of the Mind's Article: Manipulative Behaviour - Am I Manipulative?
If you don't know what manipulative behaviour is, are any of the following statements true for you, at least some of the time?
- I pretend to be incompetent, play the victim, act helpless, or admit too often that I am stupid.
- I say "anything you want" when I don't mean it or I lie about how I feel.
- I say "promise me" or I act overly concerned.
- I promise to change my behavior knowing perfectly well that I don't want to change.
- I blame others for my problems.
- I act ignored, forgotten, hurt, wounded, unloved, or uncared for.
- I act angry or throw temper tantrums.
- I act depressed or suicidal.
If at least one of those statements is true for you, you ARE manipulative. What you are doing is trying to make people feel guilty when you want to get something or some attention. Unfortunately, most of us have been made feel guilty by our parents, teachers, ministers, or telemarketers. It is so ingrained in us that we don't even realize we are being manipulative.

A nice cuppa tea!
Recent studies found that people who drink 2-3 cups of regular, caffeinated tea per day have 70% less chances to suffer from a fatal heart attack than non-drinkers. They also tend to have stronger bones. Tea is known to boost the immune system and may help to prevent cavities. Long live the tea drinkers!
