Time Collapsing | 3 Tips of Time Management || Mindset Monday
“You yourself are the eternal energy which appears as the universe. You didn’t come into this world, you came out of it, like a wave from the ocean.” – Alan Watts
I’ve recently been reading a book by my good friend, Ed O’Keefe called TIME COLLAPSING: The New Art Of Speed, Money, Power & Meaning.
Something dawned on me as I was reading this…
Every person in the world right now has a reason for being here. Each one of us has a purpose. That means you have a reason for existing and it is unique from every other individual you walk by on the street.
Not only do you have a PURPOSE, but you have a SUPERPOWER that you have been given to fulfil that purpose.
Today, I want to show you how to find your superpower.
If you are…
Starting a new business
A mum wanting to get more out of her time with kids
A significant other that wants more time with your partner
A business owner searching for more fulfilment
Anyone looking to improve their relationship with time
This book is for you!

WSH097- When Nothing is Working
When you want to improve a skill or want to learn a specific skill, you not only invest time in educating yourself, but you also do your part to hone it through application and tweak it based on the experience and results you receive. Hypnosis isn’t any different, but as with any other skill, sometimes things don’t go the way we planned and in the case of hypnosis, sometimes our techniques don’t work and we get bad reviews. Most of us usually shrug this off and accept the fact that they can’t treat everyone, but is that the only option we have?
Knowing what to do when your technique isn’t working is the focus of discussion of our webinar. I’ll share with you the four strategies you can go for when your client isn’t responding to your technique as well as some of my most memorable experiences in using these strategies.
“When all that you have is a hammer everything starts to look like a nail.”
Remember: the client is still the one with the keys and driving the car, the hypnotist is only the GPS showing the better way to get there. When a client is not shifting, work out mechanisms within your own style to bring them back into the process. Simplify your work. If they’re not responding, maybe you didn’t have them deep enough in the process. A powerful strategy is the Shoulder Press Deepener. The shoulder press startles the mindset and gets the process back on track. Age regression is for getting client in place where they are doing direct suggestions hypnosis on themselves. Some clients needed a different style of doing it. When all else fail, apply suggestion. We tend to always get caught up in the content of the back story. Instead, go into context of how they feel now and how do they want to feel. Ask them why they do certain things like why do they fear, why they smoke, or why they eat.
4 Ways to Handle Non-Responding Clients:
Compliance Get Back to the Basics Go Deeper Go Another Direction
When your client experiences a “Hit the fan” moment, accept that challenge and be thankful it happened because you can address it while you’re still working together.
