Mission and Description

Institution Mission Statement: It is the mission of HMI to continuously explore, within ourselves and others, how our subconscious mind can influence our behavior, affect the events of our lives, and empower us to achieve our dreams and goals. Our philosophy is based on the belief that the subconscious mind is a goal machine, dedicated and driven toward the fulfillment of a programmed path.

Our primary tenet is that all of the events of our lives, including "luck," both good and bad, is a manifestation of the energy that emanates from our subconscious mind. This energy continuously strives to fulfill the agenda for which it is programmed. Through research, education, and the clinical application of this tenet, HMI aspires to better the world by fostering a greater awareness of these principles, and the development of one’s subconscious mind to be more congruous with their conscious desires.
