EPISODE 8: “Reprogramming Your Subconscious Mind For Health, Wealth And Happiness”

April 10, 2019
Everyone knows and I know that you know you have what people call a subconscious or unconscious mind. Less than one percent of people know how to use this part of your mind. And this part of your mind pretty much controls every bit of your life. If you're not making the kind of money that you want to make or you don't have the health that you want or the relationships or the body or money or whatever it is… the reason you do not have all of that is because everything that you have in your external life is a reflection of what you hold in your unconscious paradigms. 
The big mistake that everyone makes is that they try to change something in their behavior. They try to change something in their external world never recognizing that their entire external world is created and driven and perpetuated by their internal world. Stop trying to DO things to make it happen and start BECOMING. In this podcast episode you're going to start learning about the unconscious mind and you're going to start learning about how you can use this part of your mind to create anything that you want. 

In this episode I discuss:

What You Hold In Your Mind Will Become Manifest

When I started this episode, I said that this episode could change your life. And the reason I said that is because see when you change when you change what's going on, in your unconscious mind when you change the unconscious paradigms. When you change the unconscious identity when you instruct your unconscious mind to heal you essential Whatever happens and whatever is held in your unconscious mind will manifest in your life. And when you change your unconscious paradigms, you will automatically change your life. You know, predominantly, I think a lot of people who listen to this podcast are business people. And what I want to share with you is that if you're not making the kind of money that you want to make, but let's look at everything in your life, if you don't have the health that you want, or the relationships, or the body or money or whatever it is. The reason you do not have that, and it's all going to boil down to this. And it's really simple. And when you get this, I mean, when you really understand us, everything changes. Let me change. Actually, let me just change what I said. I said when you understand this, but I want to go one step further. When you actually come to know because there's a difference between knowing and understanding. When you come to know what I'm sharing with you in this episode, everything changes for you. Now, what I started with a couple of seconds ago is you do not have the money, or the health or the relationships or whatever it is plain and simple, because you are not that kind of person. If you look at let's say for example, let's take two areas, look at your body, whatever shape or condition your body is in, as a reflection of the unconscious paradigms that you hold. And the same thing with work. You look at your business, you look at your income, they are a direct reflection of what you hold unconsciously. Everything that you have in your external life is a reflection of what you hold in your unconscious paradigms. So that change your life. And the big mistake that everyone makes and we've talked about this in other episodes is that they try to change something in their behavior and

They try to change something in their external world, never recognizing that their entire external world is created and driven and perpetuated by their internal world. So, obviously, you want to change something in your external world, stop trying to do things to make it happen, and start becoming. And that's a matter of your unconscious paradigms. That's a matter of reprogramming your subconscious mind. start becoming that person internally, and everything will shift externally. I want to start with what I call a massive fallacy of thinking. What I mean by that is that most people and I know that you've done the same thing. Most people think that they can think themselves, they can think their way to a new life. They can think their way to success. They can think their way to being healthy. They can think their way in their relationships. They can think their way Way to whatever it is they want to create. Have you noticed in your own life, that doesn't work. And the reason that it doesn't work, and there's a certain discernment of thinking here, but the reason that doesn't work is because your analytical thinking is left brain. And it's, it's just analytics. But all of your unconscious paradigms are held right brain and to create change the unconscious mind. You have to communicate with your unconscious mind and the language of your unconscious mind. By the way, I use the word unconscious and subconscious interchangeably. So it's the same thing. I'm referring to the same thing. I just better change the words. What a lot of people do, and I'm sure you've done this is let's say, for example, that you want to build your business. And you actually you know, you analyze it analytically. Think about all the ways you want to do it, and how much money you know you want to make. And you watch other people and you're like, well, if they can do it, I can do it. And all this stuff, all this internal chatter that you go through in your mind. And then you look back a year later, and you really haven't, you haven't made any progress. And then you're like, well, how come I think that I want it and, you know, I've been applying myself and I've been doing things, but how come I'm not getting the results that I want? Well, the reason that you're not getting the results that you want, whether it be relationships, or your health, or your business, or whatever it is, is because of what I started with. You are not the kind of person because whatever you are on the inside will be reflected on the outside. So you can't think your way to the outcomes that you want. You must actually be those outcome outcomes in your subconscious program programming. I'm tripping over my words today. Now something else I want to look at is what I call the illusion of subconscious context. versus analytical thinking. I just started talking about it when I said you can't think your way to the outcome that you want. But no matter what you think, and let's go here for a second, many of you have probably read the classic book, Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill. Well, you know, if you could read that book and become rich, then wouldn't everyone who you know everyone who reads that book when they become rich, you ever thought about that? Millions and millions of people have read, I think something like 15 million people have read that book, yet. A very small percentage become rich. Why? Because thinking

in terms of thinking is left brain, its analytical. And so you can read the book, and you can think that you want to be rich. However, if in your subconscious paradigms you were poor, which we'll talk about in a little bit, if you're poor, it doesn't matter what you think that you think you want, which is analytical what matters is what the unconscious paradigms are. You know, the best example would be somebody like Mike Tyson. I think he earned, made attracted whatever words you want to choose. I think I read that he made 310 million dollars in his career, yet he's broke today, or was when I read, you know, a while back. Why? Because even though in his external world, he made all this money and his internal world, he was poor. You look at people who win the lottery, there's been a lot of research done on this people will, you know, win 1015 2050 you know, million dollars. And they think they basically what they do is they go out and blow it. Because a few years later, many people who win the lottery are broke again. Why? Because in the external world, the outside world, they have money, but in the internal world, they're broke. And whatever you are in the internal world, the unconscious mind will say something and this is literally like an unconscious conversation. the unconscious mind will say if you could The mind would say, you know what, you're not a rich person, you're a broke person. So what I'm going to do is I'm going to make your external world consistent with what you think unconsciously in the paradigm you have. And I'm going to make you lose the money and squander the money and make bad investments and blow it all away. Why? Because that kind of money is not consistent with your unconscious identity. And whatever your identity is, the unconscious mind is, you know, air quotes saying, whatever your unconscious identity is, it is my job to make it happen. So, the only way, the only way to have the outcomes that you want in life is to condition your unconscious mind, which we do through repetition, programming your unconscious mind, which we do through repetition, and being that at an unconscious level, I know I'm being a little bit repetitive here, but then and only then will you have what you want in the external world. When you first have it in the internal world. Let me give you another example. What I want you to do is I want you to imagine an iceberg. Now, as you know, the majority of the iceberg, something like 90% of the iceberg is below the water. And you can only see the small tip, you know about the water. And that's like 10% of the iceberg. Now, obviously, I don't know the exact percentages, but that represents your conscious and your unconscious mind. Your analytical mind, which you can air quote, see, is the part of your mind, part of the iceberg above the water. But you know, when you look at an iceberg, and you know, pictures, I mean, I've never seen an iceberg in real life. But when you look at pictures, the majority of the iceberg is below the water. And that is your unconscious mind. And the same thing with you. The majority of your processing mentally is unconscious, and it's the part of the iceberg you can't see it's below the water. And there are all kinds of paradigms that are held their, their paradigms about age and your health. You know, for Example. I had a client one time a hypnotherapy client many years ago.

And well, I haven't met hypnotherapy in 20 years. So just get that out in the open. But many years ago, she, she said, You know what, I had been overweight my entire life. And I asked her, I said, Well, you know, are other people in your family overweight? And she said, Oh, absolutely my entire family's overweight, we're telling you, and that's what we do. That's what we eat. That's how we eat, and we eat a lot. What I want you to notice there is that she's trying to change her external environment. But in her internal paradigm, she said that was pretty much verbatim, we're Italian. That's what we do. We eat and we are all overweight. Now, she doesn't consciously hold that and she didn't go through her days, like saying, you know, oh, I'm Italian. And that's what I do. And that's what I you know, I eat and everything. It's all held unconsciously. Whatever you have in your external world is a reflection of your wealth paradigms and your financial paradigms unconsciously. And you probably grew up up with what you know what a lot of people grew up with. Right now in the US, 80% of Americans. And I read this recently, 80% of Americans live paycheck to paycheck. And you probably grew up with money doesn't grow on trees, you have to struggle for it. Money's hard to come by. We're not like other people were from the wrong side of the tracks. And if that's how you grew up, that's how you were programmed. That's what you learned. And that's how you show up in the world today. And the same thing, I think you're getting it by this point, with any area of your life. The big mistake that a lot of people make and probably you is that when you want to change your life, you obviously try to go do things and try to change your external environment. And then very quickly, what you recognize and I know you've done this very quickly, you're right back to your old patterns and your old behaviors again, you know, a classic example would be let's say that you want to go on a diet. And you said, You know what, it's Friday, and this weekend, I'm going to clean out you know, the cabinets, and the pantry. And Monday I'm going to go on a diet. And then what you do that weekend, you know, you throw out all the ice cream and the crackers and, and all the chocolate and all the things that you know you normally will munch on or whatever. And then you start your diet on Monday. And Monday, you're feeling pretty good. You're like, wow, you know what, I'm changing my life. This is amazing. And I'm going to be trim and fit and healthy. And then on Tuesday, you're like, yeah, I'm doing pretty good today and Wednesday, you're kind of biting your nails a little bit metaphorically, you're a little anxious. And you know what I've done pretty good last couple of days. And you're gritting your teeth a little bit. Why? Because in your unconscious paradigms, you're the kind of person who needs to junk food and the donuts and the cookies and the sugar and whatever, or the cokes or the sodas or whatever. And your body you're craving them you're wanting them Why? Because that's the kind of person that you are, then you roll into Thursday. And you're like, you know what, I've been pretty good last several days. I you know, I've stuck it out. I'm going to have one Nacho or One bite of a donut, or a french fry, or whatever it is. And then Friday rolls around, and then you think to yourself, you know, I've been really good this week, I'm going to reward myself. And on Friday, you have the full on piece of pizza or whatever it is. And if you notice by Monday, you're pretty much right back to your old behaviors again. Now, there's some other things going on here. And part of this is not just psychological, its brain based, whatever habits you have, and I'm, you know, I've shot I've done not shot, I've done an episode on habits. And we're going to do a lot more on that. But whatever habits you have, those are neural pathways in the brain. So basically, what's happening is when you go back to the old behavior, it's just the neural pathways kicking in.

Your big takeaway here, what I want you to notice is that we always revert back to our paradigms. So you tried to change your external environment and your behavior, but you reverted back to your old paradigms. Something else that I also want you to notice here is that your daily performance and behaviors, they happen automatically based upon your context. When I mentioned context earlier also what I mean is beliefs. Your context is like our frame, and you have contextual thinking. Let me give you an example of that. Let's go back to wait for example, or even money. Let's say that a contextual belief that you have is that no matter what I do, I cannot lose weight. Now I know that's going to resonate with some some of you listening, no matter what I do, I cannot lose weight. Well, if that is your contextual belief, which basically means that framework belief, then it doesn't matter what you do, whether you do yoga, or polities or dieting or walking or, you know, you hire a trainer or you go Lean Cuisine or Weight Watchers, or it doesn't matter, hypnosis, nothing, it doesn't matter. Because see, you want those things to help you get the end result that you want. But your contextual belief notice and the example that I gave you, no matter what I do, I cannot lose weight. And net contextual belief, which is a subconscious framework belief will overshadow anything that you do. So what we have to look at is and basically people will say, Jim, if my beliefs are unconscious, how do I know what they are? That's a really easy one. And the reason that it's easy is because your external environment, environment, your world around you is your beliefs objectified? If you want to know what you believe about health and wellness, go look in the mirror, if you want to know what you and I mean, unconsciously, if you want to know what you unconsciously believe about money, go look in the mirror, you want to you know, you want to know what you unconsciously believe about relationships. What does your current relationship look like? How many times have you been married? How many relationships have you been in? How many relationships have you never been in? I hope you know hopefully, it's sinking in by this point. And by the way, end of our time together, I'm going to tell you what you can start doing to actually start reprogramming, but hopefully by this point, you recognize that you operate automatically on unconscious autopilot. Another example would be, you know, you've been driving before. And have you been driving and you're selling your head, you almost miss your exit. And I know that applies to everyone listening. Well, I've been there also, you're driven across town, you know, 15 minutes and you're like, I don't even you know, remember driving here? How did I get here? It's all unconsciously done, your unconscious mind does it for you. And we operate on autopilot unconsciously literally, this is also in there. We're logical. So we operate on unconscious autopilot, and whatever your initial programming is happens automatically. Let me give you another example here of context versus content. Content is what you talk about. It's just like, I got to pick up laundry. I've got to do this. It's basically your analytical thought. Context is Remember the framework, the subconscious framework, whatever your subconscious framework is, as I said, will always supersede the content. Let's go back to weight, the content would be is I need to lose weight, I want to look good, I want to be healthy, I want to be happy. I want to fit into that size seven dress, whatever that might be. That's all analytical content, which is words and, and nouns and verbs and language. However, all that language fits into the bigger context. And if the bigger context is, no matter what I do, I can't lose weight, then all the words are going to be superseded by the context. I'll give you a great example here many, many years ago, I used to speak at the same events as Donald Trump. And I remember Trump i didn't i only listen to him one time. And he said that in 1992, he was walking in the streets of New York, and he saw a homeless person and he thought to himself, you know what, that homeless person is better off than I am. Wine because they're broke, and I $2.9 billion, with the be not an am $2.9 billion in personal debt. That person is $2.9 billion better off than I am. Now, I don't think anyone knows what his actual worth is. But I don't think anybody would argue he does probably have a chunk of money in the bank. How can somebody be 2.9 billion with a be upside down in the red, and then they're wealthy again? The reason why hopefully this will hit home

is the reason why is because in his unconscious context, in its unconscious programming and its paradigms, even though in his external world that he did not have money and his internal world, he was still very wealthy. let that settle in. His whatever's the internal world automatically happens in the external world. All right, you may want to write this down. Obviously you hear me say if you're not driving, you may want to write this down. And this is a very powerful phrase, it just popped in my head one day and it's true when you look around, you cannot do what you were not. And you or you can even put I and I can only do what I am. You cannot do what you are not and you can only do what you are. So the great example is this. If you are a cigarette smoker, I mean, no one says, You know what, I think today I'm going to pick up cigarettes and I'm going to I'm going to smoke three just to smoke three cigarettes. It doesn't happen that that way. If you're a cigarette smoker and your behavior, your You are a cigarette smoker and your mind. I mean, obviously people say I'm a smoker. They do not say I'm a situational or behavioral smoker. They say I'm a smoker. So if you are a smoker, in your unconscious identity, you are a smoker and your behavior. Now let me demonstrate it. Easy to do what you are. So if a smoker is a smoke a person to smoke in your unconscious identity, it is easy for them to smoke. If they are a nonsmoker and their unconscious identity, it is very hard for them to smoke. And I want to let that just settle in, get your mind around that is whatever you are, unconsciously, it's easy for you to do. Whatever you and if you're not that, then it's not easy for you to do. So we've talked about weight, let's talk about money. This is why if you are broke in your mind, it is not easy for you to make money, because what you could be doing is working 70 hours a week as an entrepreneur or whatever you do, and working all these hours and putting in you know, your nose to the grindstone and all these things and then you wonder how come I never have any money? How come I'm not attracting money? How come I'm not making money? How come on, you know money and money on how come Money, money, money, and I never, I never get to enjoy it. I never have any money. Well, you cannot be rich and your external world, if you are not first rich, in your mind, something I say to myself, I say it all the time. If I don't have something in my external world, it's because they first don't have it in my internal world. Okay, so by this point, you're probably wondering, all right, and you're probably understanding that content is all the blah, blah, you say to yourself, and a lot of it is just self deception. You want to believe that you can make a million dollars a year, or you want to believe that you can be trim fit and healthy. Because I mean, who wants to say, Well, most people will never say I don't believe I can do that. I see other people doing it, I can do it. Yet, you don't get the end result. Why? Because your contextual beliefs, your unconscious beliefs, your unconscious paradigms and programming is different than what you think that you So by this point, you might be wondering, okay, you know, where where did this contextual programming come from? Where do these beliefs come from? Very simply. Go look in the mirror, and then look at your parents, you will see or your primary caretaker very early in life. You will see when you really stop and you look, and I've been there, trust me, you will see a lot of your parents in you when you stop and you look at you. Many years ago, I was having my condo painted. I was, I think, in my early 30s, and I went to stay with my parents for a week. 10 days. I don't remember how long it was. But I remember what hit me one day as my mom was talking. And as I was listening to my mother talk, literally and I know probably a lot of you have been here. When I heard my mom talk. I'm like, oh my god. I'm my mother. And the same thing applies to every one of you. Whether you be making Male or Female that applies to you, because you learn to become who you are, through your early what I call your and you are indoctrinated, you learn to become exactly who you are about money and health and how life works and how life is hard or life is easy or what life's going to give to you, or what your health is going to be like. And it's because the reason why is because the

analytical part of the brain doesn't really form till about eight years old. So whatever said to you very early in life before eight ish or so eight or nine, whatever said he goes right to your unconscious mind and it becomes part of your programming. So you've learned it from your parents. You've learned it from your church, I this day and age, I am not religious, I would consider myself spiritual. And beyond that I consider myself not even that I consider myself a cosmic being. I mean, we're all cosmic beings. I mean, like you've heard me say before, maybe you've heard me say before is where were you before you got here, but I was taken to a Baptist Church. early in life and I had to go to vacation Bible school when I was you know, 678 years old. So you learn from your parents, you learn from your grandparents, people around you, your family, your aunt's your uncle's, you learn from church, you learn from school, we learn from TV, this, you know, I used to watch Sesame Street as a kid, I think Sesame Street started in 1969 or so. And I was born in 1965, my parents would plop me down in front of the TV, and I learned from TV. And then we learned from just the world around us, basically, who you are, is your an amalgamation of your early life. You also learn from your environment. You know, were you born in a wealthy neighborhood? And is that how you grew up? Were you born in the poor neighborhood? And is that how you grew up? We also perpetuate this through generations. I read somewhere and it makes a lot of sense to me that we have fourth generations of family, families on public assistance. That is not a surprise to me. Why? Because The poverty mindset is just passed down from one generation to the next and the next. And it creates a perpetual cycle that people cannot get, you know, they can't get out of. And that applies to socialization, but it also applies to you and the way that you grew up. I want to share with you something that happened to me when I was, I guess, six years old first grade. I remember, my teachers name was Mrs. Schilling 1971. And we took a math test. And Mrs. Schilling when she was passing a test out after she had graded them. She put the test down on the desk in front of me, and I remember very vividly, it had a D, and red and a circle around it. And she put the test in front of me and this is what she said to me. She called me Jimmy, and she said Jimmy, you were not very good at math. The reason I tell you that is when I graduate in high school, I graduated in the top 10 and I had very good grades, but what I struggle with all of my time in school, for the most Most part until I was a sophomore in high school. What I struggled with was math, math, candidly, was very difficult for me. As a matter of fact, I even flunked algebra. The first time that I went through algebra, and my parents used to berate me. They used to say things, how can we make A's everywhere else, and you flunked math. And then and then they would go into Well, you know what, you're not trying hard enough. You're actually not applying yourself, you're not focusing, you're not living up to your potential, blah, blah, blah. And I heard this all through grammar school, middle school and high school. My sophomore year in high school, we hosted a foreign exchange student from Japan. And I was actually in a geometry and my sophomore year, and she helped me she was very good at math. I made the highest grade of my geometry class. And I consider geometry math. I mean in this part of the math family, and that When I made the highest grade in the class, that dispelled the earlier belief that I was no good at math. And then I did very well for the last couple of years of school. What I want you to notice here is take my example, when my teacher Mrs. shelling said to me, You are not good at math. I being six years old, I took that, that became part of my identity part of my paradigm. And I worked well, like I worked hard every year, and math and no matter what I did, and no matter how much I studied, I still made low grades in math, when I was making A's and everything else, and I failed algebra. Why? Because of that initial imprint and programming. And the very same thing has happened to every one of you listening right now. Whether it be your parents, your school, your family, whatever it might be. Aristotle once said, he goes, give me a child until he is seven, and I will show you the man meaning that we become who we are in our formative years. There was also a German psychologist Who said something along the lines of, he said, Give me a child until the age of eight. And I will

own him for a lifetime. Why? Because you become who you are very early. Most people never, they never learn what you're learning right now. And because you never learned it, they never changed a paradigm. And they live that paradigm from a very early age, their entire lives. Let's do a little context check for you. Let's see what your core level unconscious paradigms and beliefs might be. I'm going to give you a couple of scenarios here. And what I want you to notice is how you think and how you respond to this. Let's say a family member gets sick, and you have to come up with an extra $10,000 a month for meds. What do you start thinking right away? Let me give you another example here. What if somebody said to you, you can be the number one salesperson or whatever it is that you do, you can be the number one person at your company If your company is not big enough, you can be the number one in the region or the state or the industry. You can be number one. How about this? What if somebody says, You know what, you can easily make $1 million a year. I want you to fill in your own values here. I can't, or I can't do something because of something. What I want you to notice is every one of these scenarios that I gave you, however, you responded, you responded automatically, in your thinking, from your context. So when I said for example, a family member gets sick, and you have to come up with an extra $10,000 a month. For me, that's no big deal. Not nothing. However for you, and by the way, I grew up poor. So at one point, it was a lot, no question about it. So for you though, right now, you might be thinking, Oh my gosh, I would flip out. How would I do that? Well, what I want you to notice is that is the context you're coming from and that's how you live your life from that paradigm and that's why you do not yet have the $10 dollars per month. Okay, if you're like most people, this is resonating. You're getting it. And you're probably already thinking, all right, this makes sense to me. How do I reprogram my subconscious mind? How do I program and new content? How do I create new context? Well, let's for just to keep this simple, stop thinking about context for a moment, because I want to keep this really simple. All that I want you to think about at this point is how do I reprogram my subconscious mind. Now your subconscious mind is like computer software, your hardware is your brain, but the software obviously, you know, you can upgrade it, you know, I use an Apple product, a MacBook Pro, and every so often they're upgrading the software. Your old software has some glitches in it, the programming doesn't work for what you want to create. What we need to do there, what you must do is simply just create something Some new software. See because as I mentioned earlier about school and all that I want to slow down with this. And I want to leave a parting thought here, we're going to go a little bit longer and I'm going to share with you where you can start to learn to reprogramming your subconscious mind. But I want this really to come home. I'm going to say this, everything that you believe you have been programmed to believe. Repeat everything that you believe you have been programmed to believe. We're all born the British, I believe is British philosopher, john Locke. He said we are all born tabula rasa. And I can go a lot deeper of karma and stuff like that and I'm not but let's say john Locke is correct tabula rasa. tabula rasa means a blank slate. You were born a blank slate and all of your beliefs That you hold about the world, you have been programmed to believe. And I'm going to give you an example that's going to hit home with pretty much every single one of you here in the States. And I would think it's going to hit home with people that are overseas as well.

Here in the United States, and normally I have a picture that helps. But normally I show picture people a picture of a classroom, and in this classroom there are there, they look like they're kindergarten, they're five years old. And they all have their hand over their heart and they are all pledging allegiance to the flag. What I want you to think about here is when you were five years old, and if this happened to you, did you even know what the word allegiance meant? Did you even understand the Pledge of Allegiance? I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, etc, etc, etc. You're literally being indoctrinated as a kid. I mean, a kid doesn't even know what allegiance is. But we are indoctrinated by our schools and our churches and our nations and our parents. In our families in our world and our media, to believe everything that we believe it starts very early, and no kid at five years old says, You know what, I am not going to say the Pledge of Allegiance because I do not want to be indoctrinated. It just happens. And in the same way, your entire life. This is a little profound for some people. But most people live their entire lifetime living from someone else's beliefs. Consider that most of us live our entire lifetime living from someone else's beliefs. All right, at this point in our time, what I want to talk about is how to reprogram your subconscious mind. I'm you know, I'm not here to pitch anything. I do have a complete program on my sales psychology membership site, and I'm not promoting that I do. I'm telling you have a complete program, because I'm telling you, there's a way but where I want you to start I want you to start with a book. It's because I could I could sit here and I could literally because the the program that I have, I think is I don't know, four or five hours. And I could go on and on and on. But what I want to do is I want to get you started. And I want you to start learning how to reprogram your subconscious mind. And we can do that through self hypnosis, which I'm not going to go into here. What I am going to go into though, is I want you to get a book. And it's a classic book, because this book will explain everything from A to Z when it comes to reprogramming your subconscious mind and the power of your subconscious mind. One caveat, I tend to attract people that have more of a thought process or they're more progressive thinkers. They think in terms of the universe or spirituality, etc. Most people that follow me, I don't know, but I'm guessing are not fundamental Christians. The reason I tell you that is the book that I want to refer to you is called the power of your Your subconscious mind, it was written I believe back in the late 60s or 70s. And it's written by a pastor, I believe, I believe he's a pastor, but his name is Joseph Murphy, the power of your subconscious mind. I took a screenshot back years ago and back in, you know, years ago and took a screenshot. He had like 1700, I think, you know, four and a half stars, four and a half star reviews, and he's got 1700 reviews. The reason I tell you this is he mentions God a lot in a Christian context in the book. If that doesn't work for you simply filter it out. What I am telling you is that this is probably one of the most comprehensive books and well written books that I've ever read on the power of your subconscious mind. So as I said earlier, I can sit here and I can talk for hours and hours and hours and I can teach and I can train when it's a lot easier for you right now. Just go get this book. You can get it you know, Kindle For 99 cents, so no one has an excuse to not get this book and read this book. Also, when I say read this book, let me know you probably do the same. Let me tell you, what most people do is they get a book and they read it. And I'm like, Whoa, that's a really good book, and they read it once and they put it on a shelf and they forget about it. What I would strongly suggest that you do is you get this book, and you read it, and you read it over and over and over again, and practice. Here's the key practicing the exercises that you're going to learn in this book. Now, in my transformational coaching programs, I do teach all of my students self hypnosis, and we go a lot deeper, much deeper than what we're talking about here. And I want to be very clear, I'm

not an MD. I'm not a you know, I'm not a medical practitioner. I do not have a medical license. I never tell anyone that should get off their medication. I never even tell people that hypnosis or self hypnosis and reprogramming your subconscious mind cured themselves. What I do tell people is that you and it is medically proven. I mean, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, you know, Columbia, the Mayo Clinic, National Institute of Health, it is proven that you can heal yourself. I'm going to just throw a caveat here, because this might affect somebody. Plain and simple. My my cousin, her son, he was in Afghanistan for years. And what a lot of people don't know is that for those soldiers that come back, I believe the number is for every soldier that's killed in combat. Three people, three soldiers killed himself and they come back from PTSD. Michael cousin son killed has killed himself PTSD after 10 years and, you know, Iraq and Afghanistan. And I did a little research on this and what I've discovered is that there is some research at the but the National Institute of Health that says, self hypnosis is extremely effective at alleviating or eliminating PTSD. So it's extremely effective at eliminating PTSD, trauma, negative thoughts negative behaviors, it's extremely effective. Now, let me bring this up also, is I did mention the word self hypnosis and that for some reason scares some people. It's just a word, call it power of the mind, call it whatever you want. But hypnosis and self hypnosis had been endorsed many years ago because they changed their endorsement criteria by the the American Medical Association. But since that time, it has been over the years it has been endorsed by the British Medical the American Dental, the American Psychological, the American Psychiatric Association, Harvard, Stanford, Yale, Columbia, the Canadian Medical Association, the Canadian psychological and psychiatric associations, the National Institute of Health, Johns Hopkins, the Mayo Clinic, they have all these organizations validated or endorse the advocacy of self hypnosis, for our ability to heal our minds and to heal our bodies in to change our behaviors. Whatever you do, if you want, don't take my word for it, do your own research. For now, all that I want you to do is I want you to actually get the book The power of your subconscious mind. That book will tell you how to start and lead you step by step about how to start reprogramming your subconscious paradigms. I also want to say that this is not the only you know, episode I'm going to do on this, but I wanted to lay the foundation for you, and I wanted you to get started. Okay, so your transformational takeaway this week is this. You can only do what you are and what you are. Like I mentioned smoking is your subconscious paradigms. So please stop trying to change your behaviors. Stop trying to change your external world when you get the book that I've mentioned, and you'll learn how to actually use the power of your subconscious mind when you change your subconscious paradigms, which you will Learn about in this book, your external world will change automatically. When I started this episode, I said this could quite possibly be the most powerful episode that you will ever listen to. And I also said that 99% of people do not know how to reprogram your subconscious mind or even that they can do it. You now know that what else I want to point out is that you cannot know what you know. So going forward if you do not transform or start transforming and working on your life, go look in the mirror because you now know that there is somewhere that you can start. Alrighty, the next episode so stay tuned and keep listening because in the next episode, I'm going to share with you something that I know in the way that I'm going to share it. I am 99.9% certain you have never heard it before in this way. And what I'm going to share with you is that money does not Not, money does not come from your work. And I also know statistically that most of you listening to this podcast even if even if you're making six figures, you're still struggling with money. What I'd mentioned in an earlier episode is that my sister's husband, I, my brother in law is a showman. And he taught me how he attracts money. And it's not the law of attraction and all the stuff that you've heard before and all the commercial stuff. That's not how he does it. He also never asked anybody for money. He's very inexpensive for his first consultation after that he charges people nothing. He and I laugh at it. He has a an AOL email address. I mean, for

crying out loud AOL, and he has a phone number. Yet he had cracks, money and abundance, and it's because of the way that he has money and abundance framed. And I want to share with you in the next episode, a shamans perspective on how to frame money to attracted so that it's not tied to your work. You see because most of you have money. tied to your work. And when your work goes up, your money goes up. When your work goes down, your money goes down. And actually most people have never even thought of it this way is that they are independent of each other. And in the next episode, I'm going to show you how to make them independent of each other, and how to attract all the money that you want. Aside from your work, they can come through your work, but it's not going to be tied to your work. Alright, so thanks for listening, and I'll catch you on the next episode. Take care and make it an awesome week. Bye bye.
