Guided Meditation About Change

Why did I make a guided meditation about change? Other than the obvious–my entire business is about changing people and normalizing change–I want to help people realize the amount of change happening all around them. More than a few of my clients fear, doubt, or resist change before they come to see me. In my mind, this is a bizarre position because life is very much about, or at very least vastly influenced by, change. Read More

Guided Mediation: Hypnosis For Centering, Relaxation, and Starting Over

Here is a guided meditation/hypnosis video I made to help you recenter and relax. True, it’s so banal that it’s almost not worth saying here that being at center is incredibly helpful for most of our tasks during the day. If we’re centered, we’re able to act rather than react emotionally, we feel comfortable/peaceful in ourselves, and we can passionately live our lives. Philosophers and psychologists of the existential variety (existentialists, existential phenomenologists, existential psychologists, Read More

Bad Day? “One Of THOSE Days… Weeks…?” — Three Things You Can Do About It NOW

Last week was a flaming POS. Pretty much everything that could go wrong did. I just had one of those days–every day last week. Bad day after bad day. Nothing I planned happened and most things were frustrating. (I even attempted to make the best of it and shot this video–watch how much calmer I get, but I had a ton of technical errors… then, errors posting it… so I gave up.) Has this ever Read More

Why Positive Thinking is a Bunch of Crap and Will Fail You

Thesis: positive thinking is crap and will fail you. Mindstate work is only helpful insofar as it helps you master a skill or overcome a problem area. In and of itself, “changework” and mindstate work is meaningless. I’ll probably get some hate mail for this video, but that’s okay with me. It’s not going to mess up my mindset! :p Why Positive Thinking is a Bunch of Crap and Will Fail You I believe what Read More

Hypnosis is a State You go Into — Here are the Criteria!

Many, many people ask me, “What is hypnosis?” and the much more rude, “Does that stuff REALLY work?” I’ve made quite a few videos and written a ton of blog posts answering this question (What is Hypnosis?, What is a Trance State?, What are Inductions?, I Can’t be Hypnotized!, Another Post About Trance States, Inductions 2, How Hypnotherapy Works, Mental Health is Rapport Between the Conscious and Unconscious). BUT since people keep asking me, I Read More

But rather, I can transport you to a representation of your future based on your beliefs Read More

Jurassic Bark and the Meaning of Love

I have a love for older cartoons. So, today, I watched an episode of Futurama called “Jurassic Bark“. (If you haven’t seen it, it’s a show about a pizza guy, Fry, who was accidentally cryogenically frozen on New Years 1999/2000 and unfrozen in 3000.) The episode is really well constructed and almost won an Emmy. And if you haven’t seen it, I hope you watch it before reading this post as I spoil it… But Read More
