Nurses Vital Role in Hurricane Sandy’s Aftermath

Seven nurses (of the many) who evacuated patients from NYU Lancome Medical Center during Hurricane Sandy were interviewed on national TV.  These nurses were truly heroic in what they were able to do.  They carried patients sometimes down as many as 17 flights of stairs in dark stairwells with flashlights--patients on stretchers or in wheelchairs or babies in their arms.  Some had infusions of blood or oxygen or IV's or tubes of all kinds.  It was reported the next day that none of the several hundred patients evacuated from there died—a miracle.  The nurses were pri

What the PIP Teaches

What the Power-Imagery Process (PIP) Teaches When we first conceived the Power-Imagery Process in the mid-2000’s, we understood that the property of power, as is true for all qualities, characteristics, or traits, in human development, exist as givens for our personal development. As such we have the choice, through the direction of our free will to choose at first one of two directions for any of them. As for power, we can choose Power-as-Control, or Power-as-Freedom.

Interview of Dr. Elizabeth Barrett on The ExPat Show

One of your Power-Imagery Partners, Dr. Elizabeth Barrett, was interviewed on the worldwide ExPat Show.  We are inviting you to tune in 24/7 between November 3rd and November 9th to hear Elizabeth describe the Power-Imagery Process.  You will also be able to experience an imagery exercise designed to enhance your general well being.


Power is a quality, a force that gives us, as all qualities in life do, an option to apply it for purposes that may benefit ourselves and others.  Or the opposite:  Benefit ourselves (or not) at the expense of others.  The former possibility is the driving force behind the creation of our website

PIP Tales

We have all heard of pigtails, fishtails, old wives tales, girls with ponytails, even those dreaded insects called "spring tails." There are many more such tails/tales we could think of. But, as the character in Dumbo said, "I ain't never seen an elephant fly," (which it did), so we have our version called PIP Tales.

What is the Power-Imagery Process (PIP)?

The Power-Imagery Process (PIP) is a 3-step 21-day program to CHANGE YOUR LIFE by developing your power (Power-as-Freedom not Power-as-Control) through mental imagery exercises and techniques of will based on and tailored to your individualized POWER PROFILE.

Making Powerful Changes

An essential ingredient of the Power-Imagery Program is CHANGE. Changing power-as-control to power-as-freedom asks of us to change our attitude to life. Change is a universal “law” of movement as it applies to life on Earth. By age 7 or 8 we become “completed” humans in that our core belief systems are in place.

What is Mental Imagery?

What we want to tell you right away is what imagery is not.  It is not hypnosis, meditation, daydreaming, or fantasy.  It is only in part visualization.

Hypnosis acts essentially by suggestion and submitting your will to someone else’s influence.  In self-hypnosis you subdue your will by force of your will!  It is as though two wills are in combat.  One will is diminished.  Then we become subject to suggestions and generally we willingly follow them.  Attention and arousal are subdued.

Relationships and the Power-Imagery Process

One effect of the Power-Imagery Process (PIP) is how it affects relationships.  In the power-as-control game that forms the basis of most human relationships, the prevailing condition can be expressed by the formula: "Me real-You shadow." This power dyad places the "shadow" into the position of anonymity making it rather easy to be dismissed or disregarded.

Power-Imagery Process (PIP): The Sea of Change

The Power-Imagery Process (PIP) bears witness to the possibility for change abiding in our very being.  In fact, the development of a new understanding of power devised by Elizabeth over 30 years ago was termed Power as Knowing Participation in Change.  In 10 minutes one’s Power Profile can be measured by completing a questionnaire called the Power Tool.  In other words, we are active, mutual participants in creating change.  Without the ability to change we run the risk of remaining stuck in reflexively acting in the same habitual manner, often stopping our prog
