My healing journey at Hypnothoughts Live with Ken Guzzo

This podcast is an update from my healing journey with Ken Guzzo at Hypnothoughts Live last year.

I was lucky enough to be chosen as a demo subject for his 4 hour talk. This was a demo of something known as Prime Potential. Before we dive too deep into this podcast…let me just say that I’m about as skeptical as they come.

Ken Guzzo didn’t let me down.

Without going into the gory details, he helped me to unshed a lot of emotional baggage I’ve been holding onto over the years. There was one specific memory that seemed to be dragging me down quite a bit. In the matter of about two hours we were able to bring myself into an emotional state where I was literally buzzing with freedom.

The only way to describe it was a feeling of freedom and stepping into my true authentic self.

Listen to the interview below to discover what happened to me since this demo at Hypnothoughts Live 2016.

Hypnotic Language Mastery Review with Keith Livingston

How would you like to tap into the raw power of hypnotic language patterns?

We’re not sure how being able weave hypnotic language patterns into your conversations sounds…but to the rest of us, it sounds like a no brainer.

Keith Livingston and I recorded a podcast about Hypnotic Language Patterns.  Enjoy!

Want to check this Hypnotic Language Patterns interview on youtube?

I reached out to Keith Livingston to review his Hypnotic Language Mastery program.  It teaches the nuts and bolts of Hypnotic language patterns:

  • The milton model patterns
  • metaphor creation from stem to stearn
  • and the elusive slight of mouth patterns

Buckle your seat up because we’ve got a story for you. Its a familiar story and it usually goes like this:

You’ve been reading about hypnotic language patterns. You’ve also thought how you’d use them in your everyday life. And perhaps you’ve imagined these patterns flowing smoothly like honey from your mouth.

That is until its game time. Right when you’re going to wow someone with your hypnotic language skills (hopefully without them knowing) you start to choke up a bit.

It begins with a feeling of sheer terror exploding in your chest. You freeze in your tracks like a deer caught in the headlights.

And soon you’re drowning in a sea of negative thoughts that are hammering away at you:

“Am I going to sound like an idiot?”
“What if they catch me?!?”

But you push on with the hope it’ll work itself out…but it doesn’t…and you fall flat on your face.

Listen up.  We’ve all been there.  In a moment you’re going to hear how I used some of these patterns at a sales job I used to have.

But first things first…lets

Its hard as hell to convince people to sit through a 2 hour high pressure presentation.

Once people here the word timeshare their defenses shoot up like a missile.

I couldn’t manage to get anyone signed up for a timeshare presentation.  Rent was coming up and I was at the end of my rope.

So I tried this “secret weapon” used by politicians.  It goes like this – “The issue isn’t X, its Y which means Z”

“I don’t have enough time to do a 2 hour timeshare presentation while I’m on vacation.”

“Perhaps the issue isn’t that you don’t have enough time, maybe its that you haven’t found a vacation company that values your time as an individual, which means you can look forward to how you’ll be treated during your presentation.”

They agreed and booked the presentation on the spot. BOOM!

I was speechless

  • The single easiest way to change a persons imagery…and map of the world…without coming across cold as ice and rude – pg 14
  • The 6 often overlooked ways to boost the raw but ready slight of mouth patterns – pg 11
  • CAUTION: Don’t fall into the trap of taking what a client says at face value. And discover the secret question to uncover the true limiting belief – audio lesson 4
  • The 2 unique ways to gently uproot a limiting belief…and toss it to the wind. (You’re going to be blown away at how simple these are.) – pg 13
  •  PLUS! The single easiest way to change a persons imagery…and map of the world…without coming across cold as ice and rude – audio lesson 6

lorrie morgan ferrero on red hot copy

It took me a while to secure an interview with Lorrie Morgan Ferrero.

She’s not a Hypnotist – yet her words are Hypnotic.

Let me explain – Lorrie produces red hot copy – aka persuasive writing that convinces people to do things.

More than likely it is to buy stuff.

She’s got a unique style.  Not hype-y (that even a word?) and masculine fueled sales copy that screams:


Its actually the complete opposite.  Its heavy on the emotional storytelling.

On the podcast Lorrie Morgan Ferrero reveals:


* The direct marketing LEGEND you should not eat with (never). Has nothing to do with his manners.

* How losing out on a copywriting job turned her into a A-Lister copywriter.

* A tragic event in 1999 that changed her life (and thousands of others Americans) forever

* The exact reason she’s a (horrible) actress. This makes her even better at writing copy.

* What sets her apart from her male counterparts that allow her writing to attract a wider audience.

* Why Lorries clients are stunned by the results she gets for them – its because of a “special” type of lizard.

* Discover why she said “Yeah, you’re going to piss some people off” (And why neither of us care)

* Get more women with Pick Up Artist tricks? WRONG! Do this instead (it also improves your copywriting – win win)

* A little-known trick she uses to “get in the mood” to write killer copy

* And much much mo’ (Yeah I know. Its cliche. Let me try one more bulletin’)

* But wait – theres more! click the video below


Want to check this Lorrie Morgan Ferrero interview on youtube?


She’s got a free resource called

The 30 Day Storytelling Playground on Facebook.

Make sure to join.  Its a blast and a half!

Every day, for 30 days she posts a (totally random) picture in the group.  Then you write a 100 to 200 word story in like 15 minutes.  It gets really creative..and fast!

When the rubber meets the road – actual hands on practice makes you ready for the real world.  This storytelling game will do just this – without you having to lift more than a few fingers – to type that is.

P.S.  Just in case you couldn’t tell – her brand Red Hot Copy – its a play on words – and on her having red hair (red heads are amazing….amirite???)

Laxman Mind Machine

Hey folks, Antonio here.  I’ve interviewed the creator of the Laxman Mind Machine via email.

The text interview is below my video review of the Laxman Mind machine

Here is the interview:

1)  How did the Laxman come into existence.  Can you give me a history of the Laxman.

I have been distributing Light & Sound machines in Germany since the early nineties. Later I have been involved in two companies in Swizerland – AudioStrobe and the ArtVision AG,  where we developed Mind Machines and Biofeedback systems.

In 2004 I came to the idea to develop a device.  This device combined the most important features for optimal brainwave entrainment in one device. So I made some prototypes and started with clinical tests at the Charité in Berlin to research how to achieve the best effect. After finding out the optimum, I applied for some patents.  I then founded Neurotronics GmbH, and got money from the banks for hardware and software development.

In 2008 we presented the Laxman on the IFA in Berlin the first time to the public.

2)  What are the main features of the Laxman that no other mind machine currently has.

As far as I know the Laxman is still the only device which actually supports the Ganzfeld effect.

As well as an open-eye-system which really lives up to its name.

Besides the quality of the stimulation — the Laxman touts flexibility.

Its the only “plug and play” device.  Every parameter can be adjusted separately for professional use – as well as home use.

For example there are studies out there, which suggest, that music supports relaxation and cognitive performance (e.g. Cockerton, Moore, & Norman, 1997). But there are also studies who contradict those results (Furnham & Bradley, 1997).

Maybe the studies have been influenced by the objective.  Maybe different people in different settings react in a different way? However, the Laxman supports the combination of every audiocontent or impulse sounds with the lights to achieve the best results for every individual in every situation.

Some other features, like high quality hardware and accessories, pure haptic handling of the main settings, free editor software and others completes the Laxman. Every single device will be hand checked from me (Markus) personally before shipping.

3)  Can someone program their own entrainment programs with the Laxman.

Yes.  This is one of the basic ideas of the Laxman.

The Laxman isn’t a closed and limited system.

Rather its an open system – which allows the user to do all they need for efficient Brainwave Entrainment.  With the Laxman it is possible, for example, to combine a guided meditation in local language with synchronized visuals in the individual alpha frequency (see Klimesch, 1999).

The editor software itself (LaxEdit) is also an open source software and can be adjusted by everyone.

4)  Is it possible that you guys will ever add a feature to detect remember sleep?  I know the Nova Dreamer and other devices will detect remember sleep and trigger some led lights to help someone become lucid their dreams.

Actually this is a very specific feature.

I worked with lucid dreaming by myself for many years.

So I know, that there are several techniques out there to learn it.

The thing is –  good results in lucid dreaming will not be possible without training.

I found, that a good level in relaxation and concentration in general will help a lot. In this way the Laxman can also support lucid dreaming. But a special feature is currently not planned.

5)  What are some of the exciting plans and or features does Neurotronics have planned for the future?

Currently we have developed a biofeedback software, Laxball. It is a more playful approach to biofeedback. Laxball consists in a collection of 42 mini levels, where a ball has to be steered into the goal, just with the mind. The levels are increasing in difficulty. The ball will be controlled by a sensor, which takes the skin resistance (GSR). GSR is a precise mirror of stress and relaxation, which in turn depends not at last also in thoughts and concentration. Laxball is a sustainable game to improve personal performance in a variaty of fields.

In another project we cooperate with the Institute for Applied Consciousness Research (IACR) close to Berlin. In one of their experiments they research the mental influence on random processes. It is a kind of ‘mind over matter’ experiment. Instead of the radioactive decay, which was the random mechanism in the famous thought experiment of  Schroedingers cat, here a diode (Zener generator) produces the random events. Metaphorically speaking it drops a coin 200 times a second and displayed the result (‘head or number’) in form of a line over or below the base line. The study is about how the consciousness can influence this basically independent process.

Usually the line, of course, oscillates around the base line. First results shows, that people who has trained their mind (e.g. by meditation or – what we like to proof – with the Laxman) can influence the result in a significally way, just by their will (not touching or beeing connected with the device in any physical way).

6)  Will you guys ever consider making it possible to hook the Laxman goggles up to a smartphone / tablet with some kind of accessory?  (P.S. that would kick ass 😉 )

Yes, indeed we follow up this idea. We have already a functional sample for testing the best method for data transfer and encoding the signals for the visuals. But actually there are first some other priorities, like for example a hardware redesign for improving the production or proceeding with Laxball and biofeedback.

7)  If yes to number 6, I’m assuming you guys would make an iPhone & android app that would work with the Laxman goggles. Any additional features we can expect?

Exactly. I am already in contact with Apple and of course an android app would be nice too. We have some first test apps. But it is one thing to make a quick app and a completely different thing to make an application with really cool features, optimal performance and brilliant usability. One idea I am already discussing with Andrzej (the inventor of AudioStrobe) is, for example, to find a common encoding system for lax-files and AudioStrobe. It is one of our most discussed topics everytime we meet. But the encoding methods are completely different, much less a converter from one or two colores of AudioStrobe to an all-color-goggle – just to explain one detail.

However, we follow up this idea since a couple of years and will realise it as soon as the current projects are done. And when it comes it will be well-thought-out and tested.
