    I just listened to you first podcast- Fellas it was brilliant. I have studied hypnosis with Mike and can’t always make it for a refresher when he teaches. This is a phenomenal way for me to keep in touch, hone my abilities and really embed the techniques that Mike has so brilliantly taught and of course learn more… Thank you both………….

    Hi Mike and Chris, I enjoyed this podcast enormously and am delighted with the Art Gallery – content free scripts are so powerful, I am always looking out for them. I love the stories and examples given. You have a very inviting style of talking. Cheers Adrienne

      Hi Adrienne,

      Thanks for the comment! This brings up a great point for our next show – scripts. It is best to develop great skills and not use scripts at all. After all, each subject is different. Instead of scripts we have frameworks that are flexible. The one exeption is the Elman induction. We say “Don’t mess with perfection”. I will throw this one out to Mike on another show.

      Hey Antonio – let’s talk! Somebody mentioned your hypnosis podcast to me a couple of weeks ago. I’m emailing you directly …

    Very nice little podcast. Mike and Chris both entertain and educate, using everyday terms about Hypnosis for therapy, hypnosis for entertainment, NLP… and best of all, some insights to how our minds work that we can use in daily life !

    I also found the positivity and optimism carries into the listener. It’s a nice change to listen to a podcast that has energy, and is both easy and enjoyable to follow.

    My favourite line: “Life should be easy, enjoyable, and vaguely annoying for those around you. Just kidding about the annoying part.” (paraphrasing).

    Perfect for the drive into work, while doing stationary bike at the gym, or anytime you need to break the monotony of a day.

    Cheers !

    Understanding how the brain functions is as complex as it gets-hypnosis is likewise as mystifying as we can imagine . There is nobody better able to lead us on practical enlightened journey of discovery than Mike Mandel . I am looking forward to the next excursion.

    Great Talk guys… especially the bit on anchors.
    Can you tell me how to create a successful anchor for myself.
    For example, I would love to get up every morning and have a strong desire to do 30mins of Yoga and Qigong and do it naturally and happily.
    Can you show me how to do this.
    Isn’t jujitsu similar to Tai Chi and Kung Fu?
    Always have great respect for Internal Martial Arts.
    Thanks guys.

      Hi Liam – we should be able to chat more on this in Podcast #4. The classic code NLP “swish” pattern is one way you could rewire yourself to naturally be in state to do those activities in the morning. It’s not exactly the same thing as anchoring, but same outcome.

      To actually build the anchor you need to put yourself in peak state by vividly imagining how good it feels to DO these things and get the benefits. Do it ASSOCIATED (rather than dissociated) and get to a very strong feeling. Then set the anchor to something unique, such as something you’ll look at (visually) first thing when you wake up in the morning. I would repeat the anchor-setting a few times to make sure it’s strong.

      Mike will have more to say. His Peak Performance CD also has a bunch of great stuff to use.

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for explaining that so well.
    I will try that.
    I will have a look again at Mike’s ‘Peak Performance’ CD.
