The Subconscious and Words

The personality, the ego, is a composite of many factors including past lives, genetics, the entire social environment one incarnates into, and the choices we make with that part of our soul we know exists and is called the will. The study of the use of the will is what got me to be a thirty-year practitioner of hypnotherapy.

I have a unique advantage in using hypnotherapy because I have had a parallel interest in metaphysics going back five decades. You could say that I see the complexity underlying the problem that a client brings to me to assist in changing.

The conscious mind when it comes into conflict or disagreement with the subconscious mind almost always loses. Focusing on what you want will, over time, create reality, but it requires much more time (sometimes lifetimes) to create. Why? Because the mind wanders and at the time that the “state” is reached the symbol (words create symbols to the deeper mind) may be lost to an errant thought such as what you might want to eat.

One day around eleven o’clock in Egypt in the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid I heard a young boy talking to someone and he was talking about having a cheeseburger. I knew, given the energy field of the chamber, that he would surely have a cheeseburger sooner than later. Be careful what you wish for when in such an energetic setting.

One of the great learnings I had on my journey is understanding language and the symbology of language because it is very powerful on the subconscious level. When I came across this video I had to write this post and share it with you.

As the World Turns

When I was a child and arrived home from grade school my sisters and I liked to watch an afternoon program, an ongoing serialization As the World Turns. My world, the earth, is traveling around our star at approximately 67,000 miles per hour while spinning on its axis at 1000 miles per hour. Our star is moving through space also pulling us behind it in a corkscrew manner at a speed of 483,000 miles per hour. We are constantly on the move.

The last two and one-half years have seen a great deal of movement. We have seen our world change at a rate that leaves many confused. Plandemics, lockdowns, economic disasters, fear porn, job losses, business failures, the rise of totalitarian governments, and NGO’s (nongovernment organizations) have wreaked havoc on the common people as the one-percenters have become much richer and the rest of the people poorer.

I am a fortunate man (yes I identify as a man, this having something to do with my gender from birth) I have been an autodidactic, one who teaches himself. In teaching myself I have the advantage of delving into aspects of subjects that would be off-limits in the context of formal education. In the days of my formal education, I realized early on that there were two modes of “truth”. There was the scientific method and there was the consensus method. All you had to do to get an A was regurgitate verbatim what the professor told you and you get the illusion of being smart.

Now, you may have noticed that the methodology these days is consensus-based and often politically driven. You are told to follow the rules, conform, and not to question “science”. Science that now is not scientific method driven. We are seeing that these days in the climate debate and the debate over the efficacy of the “vaccine” that never saw proper double-blind testing.

It is the “vaccine” that I wish to address today. I have decided that there are four levels of people concerning the “vaccine”. The first level is the group that decided to do their due diligence. They paused and they looked at the early data and decided to wait and see just what the results of this grand experiment would be. They saw that these “vaccines” when tested on animals a decade earlier ended badly for the animals — they all died. This group became persecuted, called anti-vaxers, and were pushed out of jobs if they decided not to risk their health. I fall into this group. I was and am lucky to be an autodidactic.

The next level down was the people who thought they were doing the right thing based on the government and quasi-governmental groups such as the CDC, NIH, the WHO, and, others. The government spent untold millions to craft messages (propaganda) designed to appeal to the goodness of people. So they dutifully lined up for their shots to save others. Very noble.

Propaganda has a tendency to ensnare minds. People in this group could not imagine their institutions would mislead them. They also believed in the myth of the omnipotent well educated doctor. Doctors, however, are a greatly hypnotized group and follow the recommendations of their many institutions. I am saying that doctors, though well educated, have a herd mentality. They don’t want to rock the boat and they follow the rules laid out for them called Standards of Practice. If they don’t, they risk losing their license. Part of their problem is that most doctors are now employees of corporations. The number is near 85%. Most have student loans to pay off and unlike doctors of old lack the entrepreneurial spirit, and critical thinking. Sadly, they ignored the rules of informed consent and blindly ignored evidence in a classic case of failed critical thinking. And this has put billions of people at risk. Informed consent is telling the patient all the risks inherent in any treatment. One of the smartest people I knew was a Harvard medical school graduate at the top of his class and he explained to me how much the medical educational system hypnotizes the to-be doctors.

The next level was the people coerced. Take the “vaccine” or lose your job. Most people need their income or face losing their assets. To force people to put something into their bodies that they do not want is a form of slavery. If your body is not in your control then you have lost all your freedom.

The fourth level was the people who questioned nothing and “go along to get along”. They are afraid of rocking the boat or standing out in the crowd for being different. Not only did this group blindly go forth into this big experiment, but they also made life difficult for those who did not take the “vaccine”. For taking an experimental drug without the safety data normally required and created through rigorous testing and studies, they were simply stupid. The very stupid continue to get all their shots despite the mounting mortality.

Now deaths from all-cause mortality are off the standard deviation charts. People are dying at an accelerating rate and the commonality is the “vaccine”. In a society there are statistics that accurately forecast the expected deaths in any year and when we see the number of deaths now occurring it should be sounding an alarm, and the alarm would be sounding if the media didn’t get most of their revenue from the pharmaceutical companies, and who owns the pharmaceutical companies?

Worse, it now appears from the analysis of the “vaccine” that there are substances in the shot that are designed to create that “all-cause mortality”. In short, a massive die-off is now occurring and will most likely become far worse in the future.

In addition to the mortality issue, it is now documented that those who took the “vaccine” are now Petri dishes for creating spike proteins that can spread to the unvaccinated. Because of this, I am taking a break from seeing clients. I might decide to see people who are part of the unvaccinated group at some time in the future. When I do not know.

I wish everyone good health and good luck going forward.


I Have to Confess

This is a segment of a tree that had sat for many years and as I was splitting the rounds the bark came off and I photographed this and many other beautifully colorful designs.

I have to confess that I write down many things. I have legal pads filled with ideas, notes, thoughts, lyric fragments and more. There are so many different things on those pads that thus far, I don’t have a good organizational system.

Today I was looking for some notes I took from a recorded therapy session for myself and found a list. I think this list came from a movie my Chiropractor in Rainier recommended. I hope you enjoy my notes.

Engage your friends
Bury the past, let go of your hurts, forgive
House the homeless
Respect the old
Thank god for your work ethic
Whoever you are and wherever you go, change is possible
Keep your word
Do your best
No assumptions
Share your feelings
Let yourself be happy
Tell others you love them
Live your truth
Be true to yourself
Play with your children
Hang with your friends
Tell the truth
Make amends
Resolve conflicts
Follow your dreams
Help others
Do it now
Stick to your principals
Be present
Finish what you start
Release drama

Magical Moments

In the early evening of June 14th 2021 I had the joy of watching a rare phenomena to the east of my home. There was a rain storm off to the east and the sun was low on the horizon finding it’s way under clouds. The result was over thirty minutes of watching amazing rainbows. At one point I took the photo above. I had to use the panorama feature on my phone to get it all in frame.

life is like that and sometimes we have magic that leaves us in awe. Now if I could live in awe I am certain it might become uninteresting. Some times rarity is a gift that awakens a joy in our being.

I happened to just page though one of my books in my library tonight and found this ancient Chinese Proverb I would like to share with you. Here it is:

If you want happiness for an hour take a nap.
If you want happiness for a day go fishing.
If you want happiness for a month get married.
If you want happiness for a year inherit a fortune.
If you want happiness for a lifetime help someone else.
If you want eternal happiness know yourself.

The Four Horsemen

The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse is a metaphor depicting the end of times in the New Testament. They describe conquest, war, hunger, and death respectively. This metaphor is used to describe communication styles that, according to Doctor John Gottman, can predict the end of a relationship.

Here are the four horsemen.

1. Criticism

Criticism is different than offering a critique or voicing a complaint. The latter two are about specific issues, whereas the former is an ad hominem attack. It is an attack on your partner at the core of their character. In effect, you are dismantling their whole being when you criticize.

2. Contempt

Contempt is truly mean— it is when we treat others with disrespect, mock them with sarcasm, ridicule, call them names, and mimic or use body language such as eye-rolling or scoffing. The target of contempt is made to feel despised and worthless.

3. Defensiveness

Defensiveness is typically a response to criticism. We’ve all been defensive, and this horseman is nearly omnipresent when relationships are on the rocks. When we feel unjustly accused, we fish for excuses and play the innocent victim so that our partner will back off.

4. Stonewalling

The fourth horseman is stonewalling, which is usually a response to contempt. Stonewalling occurs when the listener withdraws from the interaction, shuts down, and simply stops responding to their partner. Rather than confronting the issues with their partner, people who stonewall can make evasive maneuvers such as tuning out, turning away, acting busy, or engaging in obsessive or distracting behaviors.

I have been a student and fan of this research for many years. In time such behaviors will destroy intimacy, trust, love, and the relationship.

Here is an article that further delves into this subject. There are many many detailed articles on this subject on the web.

There is also hope if your partner is open to changing these patterns and behaviors. Here is an article on antidotes to the horsemen.

New brain hypnosis connection

A study “from the University of Turku, Finland, found that during hypnosis the brain shifted to a state where individual brain regions acted more independently of each other.…The finding shows that the brain may function quite differently during hypnosis when compared to a normal waking state. This is interesting because the extent to which hypnosis modifies neural processing has been hotly debated in the field.”

This is not news to hypnotists. It is just that disconnection that is the state that allows the hypnotist to “speak” to the subconscious mind. It is a state that we encourage in what is formally known as an induction, the moving from a conscious mind dominance, to a subconscious dominance, one that allows the conscious mind to “sleep”. The deep sleep state is mostly the same as a deep trance state. Brainwaves prove this definitively.

“In a normal waking state, different brain regions share information with each other, but during hypnosis this process is kind of fractured and the various brain regions are no longer similarly synchronised,” describes researcher Henry Railo from the Department of Clinical Neurophysiology at the University of Turku

I think the use of synchronised would be better replaced with dominant resonance. It is our vibration, our frequencies, that produce a dominant resonance indicated in the change from sleep to waking, from waking to sleep, and from waking to hypnotic. In deep sleep and in deep trance our conscious mind is at rest, a delta brainwave state, leaving our subconscious mind present. Much of the work that takes place in a trance occurs in a Theta brainwave state. This is one “level” higher than Delta. In either case there is access to the subconscious mind. The subconscious is a literal, powerful, and malleable mind. It is this mind where new forms of habitual thinking may be nurtured and brought into being.

It seems likely now that science will confirm what hypnotists and many others have long known — Mind is the builder and there are levels or varieties of mind.

“If only”

“Love is the great miracle cure. Loving ourselves works miracles in our lives.” —Louise L. Hay

Sometime ago I thought I had discovered something very original. I titled my theory “I’ll be happy when”. The central idea of the theory is a pervasive behavior/state of mind that I observed in my marriage partner at the time. I was so pleased and at the same time discouraged by this “discovery”. As I looked outward from my marriage partner I came to see that this kind of thinking was everywhere with most people.

I thought I would write about this because I received an email this morning from Gay Hendricks at talking about the “real cause of our unhappiness”. That cause he explained as ‘if only”. ‘”IF ONLY” has us looking for answers outside ourselves, forever trying to change how others behave in order to feel better about our own lives.’ I would add to this phrase “I’ll be happy when” I have this or that ad infinitum. This or that can be almost anything; a new house, a new car, more money, new furnishings and on and on it goes.

Hendricks says the root of this problem lies in a fundamental lack of love for ourselves and the solution is in a program they market. The program is designed to help people become more present, release regret and guilt, freedom from others critical opinions, and lessening fears.

My opinion on this “if only” subject is in agreement with the lack of self love analysis. There are many aspects to this self love conundrum. Yes being present is one, so is gratitude, so is forgiveness of self and others. We cannot change others so sometimes there is no recourse but to begin a process of self loving, to let go of the relationships with others who adhere to the I’ll be happy when consciousness. This is especially true when you are blamed for the changes they want not happening for them.

It is important to note that a co-existing component with this consciousness is usually a victim mentality that verges on sociopathic because it is never that persons fault. Such people blame, criticize, everything and everyone and rarely see their part in things that happen to them. If you have such relationships in your life, work on yourself first, don’t blame the other person, set boundaries. Boundaries are lines in the sand that apply to behaviors that you will not allow, will not tolerate in your life. Yes, your life may change. It will change for the better.

All relationships are there for us to learn. Learn to be loving, kind, compassionate, supportive, trusting, giving, caring, and most relationships in this material world exist for a limited time. I feel blessed to have been with my wife for such a long time. A long time was helpful. It gave us both time to learn a great many things. I am grateful.

“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.” —Carl Gustav Jung

Past Life Regressions


Since I “re-opened” I have had several past life regressions. These have been quite interesting as the parallels between the remembered lives and a problem in their current life has been very apparent. I have heard from them that the information was helpful in understanding how the two connect and how that can explain feelings, memories, and experiences in their lives today.

Life goes through change after change and I have had many changes in the last year. One such change is the ability to see people again and my wonderful new office.

The Three Things

Marisa Peer is a peer; that is, she is a hypnotherapist also. She has this lovely video talking about the three things necessary for a good relationship. Here is a link to her video.

If you prefer to just know the three things here they are:
1) Sexual chemistry
2) Best friend chemistry
3) Deep admiration and respect for the other person

There you have it. The video is worth watching.
