Wholesome Thoughts

Language Tips


There are only 24 hours in a day. With SCS skills you can do more with less. Small changes really do produce infinite results.

Our mission statements, written years before we met in 1999, illustrate our shared calling and why we started working together in 2000. Although each of us has changed in many ways, our mission statements have not, and they continue to serve as our guiding philosophy and provide the foundation for everything we do.

Our Mission Statements

  • Debra: Living, encouraging, and enjoying a conscious spiritual journey.
  • Joel: To bring out the Divine in myself and others through teaching, writing, and interpersonal relationships.

The SCS Website

We have designed this website with you in mind if you have an interest in integrative medicine and holistic therapies, those that address the whole person, including body, mind, and spirit. When it comes to health and well-being, everything is connected to—and influences—everything else. Something that seems isolated and limited, such as a broken arm, influences the whole person. Attitudes affect the immune system. The physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects are part of a single, interrelated system. The beliefs we have about ourselves, one another, the planet, and beyond make a difference not only to each individual, but also to the whole.

In creating this website, we had two principal objectives: First, we want it to be easy for you to access important information, including our products and trainings, and practical for you to share these with others, allowing for better health, more happiness, and more joy. Throughout the website, we have done our best to be subtle in our self-promotion and to provide information you’ll find helpful, including free online tips and valuable downloadable files.

Subtle Communication Systems (SCS) combines the best of Energy Medicine with the best of Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP) and hypnosis for unprecedented results. Because language is a form of energy and thoughts and feelings are intertwined, your sensitivity to the Energy will make linguistic interventions more effective for you. Also, your understanding the impact of language on the Human Energy Field will enhance the effects of your Energy-based interventions.

Everything here is “us.” Be sure to see our related materials and websites, Imagine Healing, designed to promote health and well-being for those who most need it, and Surgical Support, designed for those helping others prepare for surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, or other medical procedures. It is about much more than just physical health….
