Waking Hypnosis Techniques – Hypnosis Without Trance

What is waking hypnosis?

Is it really possible that you can have you eyes open during Hypnosis?  The truth is you need to keep reading to find out 😉

(Hypno brain engaged)

Before I get into the subject at hand…I have a quick story.  Rewind back about 30 years.

(Time machine on) 

waking hypnosis techniques I can remember it clear as day.   I’m 6 years old.  At my grandmas house.  On her bookshelf is a copy of a Hypnosis book. “Whats this Hypnosis stuff?” I ask myself. I flip the book open.  2 hours later I’m still wrapped up in the book.

“OH MY GOD!” thinking to myself.  “This stuff sounds awesome!!!”

Those 2 hours felt like minutes.  Hell, seconds.

During that time I forgot my name.  Lost track of time.  Discovered new worlds.  These worlds were a combination of pure imagination powered by raw power and the endless possibilities of new realities.

I found the key and opened the door.  Have any idea what this key was?

Keep reading and you’ll discover this key

(/Time machine off)

Why is it that I can still remember this experience as if it happened yesterday? Do I have a memory thats rock solid?

Am I a genius – I’d like to think so 😉

(True statement on)
I’m no memory expert and I’m not a genius (I know..surprise surprise) 🙂
(/true statement off)

If this is the case, how come I’m able to remember all of this? Here is a hint:

I experienced all sorts of Hypnotic phenomenon.  I was Hypnotized, and I didn’t know it yet.  I wasn’t Hypnotized in the classical sense.  No eyes closed, no “deeper and deeper”.

None of that stuff!

Hypnosis is a naturally occurring state of mind.  I see Hypnosis as a magnifier.  It can help us to learn new things very at the speed of light.  Basically Hypnosis helped me to “lock” that memory in.

Earlier I asked you whether or not you needed your eyes open for Hypnosis to occur. Clearly you do not.  I had been experiencing a state of Hypnosis while I was reading that book.

This is simply known as waking Hypnosis.

What is waking Hypnosis you ask?

Waking Hypnosis is door way to Hypnosis mastery.  Hypnosis Without Trance is the key you need to unlock the door and walk the path to mastery.  This is the key I discovered that has amped up my Hypnosis skills.


P.S. Seriously.  If you want to see Hypnosis in a whole new light, open the door with this key.  If you need more convincing you can check out my Hypnosis Without Trance review.

P.P.S. Expect some more Hypno goodies from me in the next few days.  I’ve gotta exercise my writing a bit 😉 Tad bit rusty…

Now back to reality..beach time for me 😀

Hypnosis Webinars on making money with Hypnosis – [survey]

***free survey link***

Any idea why most Hypnotherapists, life coaches, etc. aren’t making as much money as they could be?    Before I tell you why, I want you to just stop for a second and imagine something.

A family is on vacation here in Kauai and want to go out to dinner.    They keep on hearing about the Beach House restaurant.  Finding the restaurant is a breeze!  Google “Kauai Restaurant” and they are the first result.  The reviews on Yelp glow brighter than the most romantic sun.

This family walks in the restaurant to check it out.  They pick up a menu.  Picture this.  The finest food.  An Amazing wine selection.  Not to mention an awesome view of the ocean.  Minds are made up.  “I’m going to have an amazing experience!”  Getting the best service you can possibly imagine.  Eating, drinking and being merry.

The bill comes and they don’t even worry about the price!  They pay the bill in full and leave a handsome tip.  Paying for this level of service and quality is of no concern to them.  They know they’re going to get quality.  A few months later their friends are planning a trip to Kauai.  When they ask what restaurant to go they give them a glowing review of the Beach House.


Now lets imagine another experience.

A family is here on vacation and just want to get some food.  Google “Cheap restaurants in Kauai”.  Poipu Tropical Burgers shows up at the top.  Minds are made up.

Mission = cheap food.

Upon arrival they see the open air restaurant.  Slow moving servers.  Dirty tables.  Some customers look a little pissed.  Still it doesn’t them turn around.  Remember.  Cheap food.

The servers take forever to get the tables.  Rude and inattentive.  The menus are damn near tossed at them.  They check the prices on the menu.  They want cheap food.  Drinks come 15 minutes later.  Ages later the food (or what can barely pass as food).

The food is cold and has a unique taste to it.

Unique: adjective
: distinctively characteristic : peculiar

They get bad food and horrible service.  Needless to say the server gets a bad tip.  The only recommendations out of their mouth is “STAY AWAY FROM POIPU TROPICAL BURGERS”.


Now let me ask you something.  What kind of Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy customers do you want? Do you want a customer that is looking for good quality or a cheap price.

Market to people that want cheap services.  Get people that are cheap with their money. On the other hand.  Market to people who are more concerned with quality.  Get people that will gladly pay you what you’re worth.

Now this is where you need to make a decision.

“Do I want to market to cheap asses or people who will value my services?”

If you want to market to people who value your services I’ve got something great for you.  I’m running a survey about making more money with Hypnosis/Hypnotherapy.  I’m working on creating some more Hypnosis webinars.

Please take this survey and let me know what you want to know about making money with Hypnosis.

Disclaimer: In no way am I wealthy because of Hypnotherapy.  I want to learn this information just as badly as you.  This is why I’m doing this.  The answer to this survey will give me a better idea of what people want to learn.


P.S. Please take 2 minute and take this free survey.

Hypnosis Entertainment Cruise – what others say about it

“The Hypnotist Entertainment Cruise 2013 was “blown out of the water”! The presenters, Richard Barker, Alex William Smith, & Jay Noblezada shared knowledge with us you will not get anywhere else.  It was like a slot machine paying off a million dollar jackpot, the $$ just kept pouring out. It doesn’t matter if you’re a beginner or a seasoned pro, there will be information shared you will be able to use immediately to improve your hypnosis career.

George James


“WOW, the cruise was awesome!!!!! Thanks to Richard Barker, Alex William Smith, Jay Noblezada, Monica, and everyone else that spent time to put the cruise together! I left my Camera in Cocoa, but as soon I have it in my hands again, I will post my 1000 + photos for you.  It was great meeting everyone, and I look forward to next year.”

Mike Valmar


“My sincere appreciation is extended to you for assembling an excellent cast of presenters. It was a refreshing change from conferences of which I am accustomed. I work at a university and present weekly lectures and attend academic conferences throughout the year. In the academia field, presentations are a bit repetitive and conservative; however, the presentations on the cruise were delivered in the format in which information should be presented, flowing and inviting. The material was pertinent to my needs and created some enthusiasm to take the next step in my desire to focus more on hypnosis. On the way home, Pamela and I registered a hypnosis site with all of the major domains and assembled a package to be presented to local universities and businesses. This would never have happened without the professional guidance and encouragement that was extended to me and the other participants. I also appreciated the welcoming gifts that we found in our cabin on the first day of the cruise. Anna (our daughter) made sure that the treats were consumed before losing their flavors – minor gestures do send a larger message to the recipients.”

With appreciation,
Leonard (Dan) Anders

How to get medical referrals for hypnosis

In this Hypnosis Podcast I interviewed Adrian Madril from Complementary Care Hypnosis.

In this podcast we talk about his upcoming talk at the Hypnothoughts Live conference happening this june.

If you’re a hypnotist then you’ll definitely want to listen to this podcast.

Listen to the podcast below to discover how to get medical referrals for hypnosis sessions.

One of the biggest misconceptions about getting medical referrals for hypnosis is

“Doctors won’t give us medical referrals for Hypnosis”

The only thing preventing Doctors from giving you medical referrals for Hypnosis is, well, you.  If you come across as a cocky know-it-all then it ain’t going to happen.

On the other hand.  If you let the Doctor know that what you do can complement their work you’re much more likely to get hypnosis referrals.

How have you gotten medical referrals for Hypnosis?

I’d like to know how you’ve gone about getting medical referrals for Hypnosis sessions.  Please do me a favor and drop me a comment and let me know how you’ve done this.

Get Hypnosis Clients without MLM Schemes

UPDATE: If you’ve been following what has been happening in the Hypnosis community.  Basically an MLM Scheme is being marketed to Hypnotherapists.  I consider this community my “home”.  I have a lot of friends in this community and I don’t want any of my friends being scammed.

When this blogpost was started I censored everyone’s name because I didn’t want some B.S. war starting.  Then these MLM Zombies decided to attack me left and right.  I’m taking the high road and presenting the facts.

Here is my promise to you:

1) Simply read through this post and I’ll show you a few ways that you can get more clients for your Hypnosis/Coaching practice.  Without having to join an overpriced MLM a.k.a Scamway type company 😉

You know what I hate more than unethical marketers in the Hypnosis community (and other communities)?

Unethical Hypnotists and marketers that try to push MLM schemes on me and my friends.  I want friends and family, not customers and “downline”.

Don’t try to persuade me.

“Pyramid Schemes have no place in the Hypnosis Community” CLICK TO TWEET

Recently a few Hypnotists have been convincing other hypnotists to join Empower Network (an MLM company) in hopes of getting clients and up to $1,000 a day.  In my opinion this is extremely unethical.

How the hell are you supposed to get clients with a Pyramid Scheme? #facepam

Basically Empowerment Network is billed as a company where you can create a blog on their platform for only $19.95 a month.  They use wordpress (which is free by the way).  You could just as easily get hosting for $4+ a month from someone such as Westhost (Affiliate link)  or with a non affiliate link.

(If you use my affiliate link I’ll help you to setup a basic FREE wordpress website.  Just email me the receipt and I’ll hook you up.)

People also claim that you can rank for highly competitive keywords because of the sites “authority” in google.  That is until google slaps them.  They have a pagerank (googles way of ranking sites) of 4 out of a possible 10.  That is not too incredibly high.  Hell my private practice website Kauai Hypnosis has a pagerank of 4 as well.

I must be a marketing goo roo to be ranked as high as Empowerment Network…or not.

I’m going to get to the part where I show you how to get clients for your Hypnosis practice.  I’ve gotta cover this whole MLM controversy that has been happening on a TON of Facebook groups in the past week or so.

Note: All of the images below are directly related to what has been happening on Facebook.  I’ve censored the peoples names and pictures because I consider some of them good friends.  I’ve hung out with them before.  Also some of the images have been edited because some of the conversation wasn’t relevant.

From my experience people who push MLM (and I say push because they are much like Timeshare sales people) share 3 commonalities.

1) They all claim that their MLM is revolutionary.


2) Almost none of them are willing to walking about their ROI (Return On Investment)

I’m not sure about you, but I better damn well be making considerably more than I’m spending (money and timewise).

I’ve always found it funny when people don’t want to say how much they make.  If you want me to invest then you better be willing to share how much you have made.  They want you to follow along like sheep with blindfaith.  Calculating ROI is extremely easy.  Here is a basic formula you can use:

return on investment = (gain from investment – cost of investment) / cost of investment

So lets say someones hourly “worth” is $10 and they invested 3 hours of time ($30) and made $173

$173-$30/$30 = 476.7% Return on Investment.  Thats a pretty damn big ROI.  That is how much I made in 3 hours doing street hypnosis tonight.  I made $23 + $150 for two registrations for a Hypnosis event I am running tomorrow.

One of these MLM zombies apparently paid $25 to join Empowerment Network.  Then they made their first sale a few days ago which I’m assuming it was for $25.  When you run it through the formula you get:

$25-$25/$25 = 0%.  A whole whopping…oh wait.  They made basically nothing in return.  Not to mention the amount of time they had to recover their money back.

Basically if someone isn’t willing to tell you their ROI then you should run…far…and fast.

These MLM Zombies keep on attacking me and trying to convince me that they have hit marketing gold!

In yet another video trying to name and shame me this kid tries to calculate his Return On Investment.  Right below this video I’ll show you the actual math.


Above is an image from a blogpost where he posted that video above. The image was taken down. If you look at it you’ll see he made a total for $304.18 in “passive” commissions for the month of May.  He also said in the video that he invests $125 a month into Empower Network.

Remember that ROI is (Gains-Cost)/Cost

($304.18 – $125 ) / $125 = 143%

That is a pretty big investment.  Until you take into account that I haven’t calculated the actual time spent earning that money.  (Which by the way is only $179… $304.18 – $125 = $179).

BIG BALLA!  Just imagine if you make that for 12 full months!!!  That is $2148!  (Whats the poverty level again???)

So where is this 1k a day formula you guys are talking about?

I make on average anywhere from $100 to $300 a day at my day time job.  I’d rather do my 9 to 5 and make money rather than lose money.  Call me a stupid wussy if you want.


3) They turn to insults to persuade you to join.  They’d probably make a killing with Crimeshare sales 😉



Here is a video that was made in response to this article.  When I created this article I had no plan whatsoever of naming or shaming anyone that is promoting this pyramid scheme.  You can view the video to see the types of people that are promoting the Empowerment Network.

They have decided to publicly call me out, call me names, etc.  I’m guessing its from their in-experience and young age.  When I was much younger I probably would have gone on a rampage.  Not any more.  I take the moral high ground.



On 2/23 I posted this blogpost on Facebook (and tagged Devin in the post).  He got mad, blurted out some adult cuss words and said I should post what he said on this blogpost.

So we’ve verified the fact that he could kick my ass.  He’d still be a douche.  A douche that has to rely on a pyramid scheme to sell something.

All of those Disempower Network need to actually learn Internet Marketing.  Also, they need to learn how to be salespeople.  Not high pressure assholes.  If you are approached by Devin or any other person pimping disempower network…RUN AWAY.

Devin, and the rest of the disempower network have always failed to show a positive Return On Investment.

Ok my rant about shady MLM schemes is over.  For now 😉

Now I know I promised you how to get Hypnosis clients.

Attracting Hypnosis Clients Blueprint


1) Setup a website.  This one is HUGE.  You need to be found online.  If you haven’t setup a website yet I’d like to suggest that you use Westhost (Affiliate link)  or with a non affiliate link.  For $4 a month you can’t go wrong.  I like westhost because their quality is much better than Godaddy, bluehost, gatorhost, etc.  (If you use my affiliate link I’ll help you to setup a basic FREE wordpress website.  Just email me the receipt and I’ll hook you up.)

2) Go and sign up for Derek Halperns Social Triggers newsletter.  Derek is a bad ass when it comes to marketing online.  I’ve learned a great deal from him.

3) Go to and sign up.  There are all kinds of Meetup groups where you can find hypnosis clients.  Law of Attraction Groups, Hypnosis/NLP groups, personal development groups, self help, etc.  Network with these people.  Offer to give free talks, etc.

4) Give free talks at Health Food Stores, Gyms, womens groups, etc.

5) Subscribe to the Hypnosis Product Reviews newsletter with the form below this blogpost.  I’m going to be doing podcasts/webinars with people in the Hypnosis community that are getting tons of clients.  Most of these people are marketing experts.  Such as Sean Wheeler, Craig Eubanks, etc.

What I want you to do is do all 5 of these.  If you already have a website, then great!  If not, get a website!

P.S. Do you want to get instant access to any of the upcoming webinars where you’ll learn legit ways of getting Hypnosis clients?  Subscribe to the newsletter with the form below.  No spam.  I promise.

P.P.S. If you’re already on my newsletter feel free to leave me a comment and let me know what you think of all of this.
