  1. End of Time Escape Plan: https://mindpersuasion.com/recover-ancient-spiritual-power/ https://soundcloud.com/mindpersuasion/end-of-time-escape-plan https://loopvids.s3.amazonaws.com/Jun20Loop.mp4
  2. There are two types of hypnosis that aren't really hypnosis. They are based on setup more than anything. Without that setup, the "hypnosis" is much less effective. The first is stage hypnosis. Consider everything that goes into getting "hypnotized" on stage. For one, the hypnotist has to have a ton of authority. Enough to sell tickets. Then he begins by "hypnotizing" the audience. And while he's doing this, he looks out to find the BEST subjects. Then he calls people up to the stage. And once they are up on the stage, he usually gives them another hypnotic test. The ones who pass get to stay up on stage. The ones who don't are kicked off. So far, what this is a VERY rigorous sorting process. What is he sorting for? The people who are the most SUSCEPTIBLE to hypnosis. Think of a guy who advertised his hypnosis show on Facebook. The ad was seen by maybe 50,000 people. Of those 50,000 people, 50 bought a ticket. Of those, 10 people came up on stage. Of those ten, 8 stayed up after the hypnosis test. He hasn't even used any hypnosis yet, but he's already found the 8 people out of 50,000 that are the MOST SUSCEPTIBLE to hypnosis. And guess what? If you have 8 people out of 50,000 who are INSANELY susceptible to hypnosis, you don't need much hypnosis. You just basically TELL THEM what to do, and they'll do it. And if you watch any stage hypnotist, this is what they do. What about YouTube hypnotists? They do the same thing. The FILTER out the most susceptible people who are the EASIEST to hypnotize. They do it a bit differently, but they still do it. They try their hypno-game on a couple hundred people a day. But the edit out all the ones that don't work. It might take them a week, but they'll eventually get 5-10 people who are VERY EASY to put into a trance. If you try this yourself, you'll find that 1-2% of the population will basically do whatever you tell them. Stage hypnosis and YouTube hypnosis are a sorting process to FIND these people. Once you find those people, the actual words don't matter. But what if you don't want to sort people? What if you want to actually LEARN hypnotic words? Words that will work on most everybody? You can. Because such a kind of hypnosis exists. Because it's COVERT hypnosis, nobody but you can know you are using it. And if you take the time to learn it, it will make you incredibly powerful.

  3. A long time ago I took a cooking class. It was pretty interesting, and I learned a lot of techniques. The lady that taught it was VERY specific in her instructions. About year later, I took another course from the same place. Same type of food, but a different teacher. This class was also pretty cool. Different recipes, different classmates, different teacher. I also learned a ton of stuff. The second teacher was much less specific in her instructions. The first teacher was kind of like a chemistry teacher. Exact measurements, temperatures and times. The second teacher, not so much. Some of this, a bit of that, cook it till it's done, and Bob's your uncle. You can imagine both types of instruction being useful in different situations. Whenever doing something like cooking, or building simple things, specific instructions are generally preferred. Especially if you are clueless, like I was the first time around. But with some things, specific instructions are USELESS. These are generally more complex things. Things that involve other people. With this, at best, any instruction MUST BE metaphorical. For example, imagine you had a buddy that was FANTASTIC with the ladies. A natural. You asked him what to do, and he told you to "Just be yourself." After all, this is EXACTLY what he does. Since he's a natural, he doesn't need to consciously TRY anything. He talks to the ladies just like he talks to anybody else. Relaxed, confident, friendly. At the same time, that advice sounds absolutely useless to somebody with social anxiety. The idea of simply "being yourself" is terrifying. Sure, you can be yourself when you talk to your close friends. But that cute girl with a gorgeous smile? How the heck are you supposed to "be yourself" around her? Whenever we are trying to learn from metaphors, it requires a LOT of trial and error. For example, supposed you wanted to learn to play the piano. And somebody told you to practice until you "got a feel for it." This is also a metaphor. A metaphor whose meaning you would have to DISCOVER for yourself. And the only way to discover that is to practice. Pretty soon, you WOULD get a "feel for it." You wouldn't need to use much of your conscious mind. Look at the notes, and watch your fingers move up and down the keys. EVERYTHING we learn has to be this way. A metaphorical instruction. Trial and error learning. And finally mastery. Of course, if you have LIMITING BELIEFS that is incredibly difficult. Get rid of the limiting beliefs, and learning ANYTHING will be mechanical. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/beliefchange/

  6. One commonly known "truism" is that you cannot not communicate. This means no matter what you are doing, you are "communicating." Often this happens whether you know it or not. How you sit, for example, gives off certain information. Even just relaxing and listening to music, we are communicating a great deal. If you are relaxed, comfortable, and open, that will reflect in your body language. If you are worried, anxious and closed off, that will reflect in your body language. All it takes is one quick glance for EVERYBODY to notice this. Most will notice unconsciously. So most of this communication that we cannot not do is done FROM our unconscious TO the unconscious of others. When we use actual words, we are up on the surface level of conscious to conscious communication. But even then, it's not always clear what we mean. We even say stuff, and other people ask what we mean, and we don't know. A lot of our communication comes out of our mouths before we really even have an idea of what we want to say. If you've ever gotten into a fight with a close friend and said something harsh in the moment, it's hard to undo. Why did you say that? We really don't know. The truth is that there is a HUGE gray area between unconscious and conscious. A common metaphor is that our unconscious is like a powerful ship. And our conscious mind is like the captain. But this is WAY oversimplified. It is very, very rare where we have a thought, carefully plan and rehearse how we intend to transform that thought into words and then make it reality. Even if you ever have to give a speech, you might not remember much of giving it. It's very rare that we are WHOLLY consciously aware of what we are doing. The BEST conversations we have when we are IN the moment. When we DON'T plan what we say. In fact, the more you THINK of specific things to say in situations like that, the more we tend to mess up. Most everything we do is like that. A blend of subconscious and conscious. And not real clear area of where one ends, and one begins. Sure, some things are purely conscious. But these are things that require a very high level of skill. And YEARS of practice. Anything else is a mix. No matter what you are doing then, you'll be on the border. Your skills, your conscious, your unconscious, and the outcome. The more you try and FORCE a specific outcome, the harder it will be. The more you relax and let it happen, the easier it will be. And the more freedom you give yourself to mess up and try again, the quicker you'll improve. Learn More: http://mindpersuasion.com/self-help-fail/
  7. Pegging is a very useful memory technique. But most courses and books don't quite teach it correctly. Pegging, if you aren't familiar with it, is like hanging your keys on a peg. You walk in the door, hang your keys on the peg, and they'll be there when you need them. The idea is to take a new piece of information, and attach it to a pre-existing piece of information in your brain. This part is simple and straightforward. Whether it actually works or not is based specifically on HOW you connect the two ideas together. For example, let's say you were going shopping, and you wanted to remember to buy ketchup. And you wanted to "peg" that idea to the idea your car keys. The idea being you'd walk into the supermarket, hold your car keys and suddenly remember what you were there to buy. (Yes, this is a silly example!) So HOW, exactly, would you connect the two ideas? The ketchup and the car keys? The BETTER of a connection you make the more AUTOMATIC the memory will be. Most courses say you need to make a cartoonish type image. Like a gigantic bottle of ketchup dancing around with a bunch of keys as a necklace. That is a START. But to make it REALLY stick you need to add a couple more things. Unfortunately, these other couples are the MAIN REASON you'll never read about this technique in mainstream learning courses. Because there are TWO THINGS that make us humans remember anything. Extreme pain, and extreme pleasure. Extreme pain is easy. Whatever is the MOST painful thing to imagine. The extreme pleasure is also easy. SEX! Once you put those three things together, a goofy image, pain and sex, that connection (ketchup and keys) will FOREVER be linked. This because pain and pleasure are THE motivators for human action and behavior. We WANT pleasure. We DON'T WANT pain. Every single thing we do is to move AWAY from the bad stuff and toward the good stuff. This is why ancient cavemen, when they were out strolling and heard a tiger growl, EVERY SINGLE THING about that situation was seared into their brains forever. It's also why when you have a NEAR sexual encounter with somebody, (especially if you don't have a lot of experience) that PERSON will FOREVER live in your memory. So, the money question, how can we USE this information? Easy. When you WANT people to do things, you can carefully leverage their own pain and pleasure points. Hit their pleasure buttons when they do what you want. Hit their pain buttons when they do what you DON'T want. And if you are subtle enough, they won't know ANYTHING. They'll just slowly start to behave the way YOU want them to. And it will be for THEIR reasons. Learn How: http://mindpersuasion.com/people-training/

  9. There are a lot of expressions involving the stock market. One is "I got rich because I never bought at the bottom, and I always sold too soon." Meaning that if you try to "hit it out of the park" with every trade, you may risk losing everything. While taking short, consistent profits (never buy at the bottom, always sell too soon) over an extended period is a great way to make a fortune. Another one is to "sell down to the sleeping point." Which means if you can't sleep, you have too much risk. Risk is necessary, but if you can't sleep, you've got too much. Another famous line is, "the best time to buy is when there is blood in the streets." What does this mean? Well, consider there are two kinds of traders. Those who trade on emotion, and those who trade on logic. "Blood in the streets," means that everything is crashing, and everybody is panicking. Which means if you follow logic, you can find some VERY undervalued stocks. Why all of these stock market metaphors? The world economy is in a very dangerous transition phase. Kind of like when there is "blood on the streets." Not much is working like it used to be. And if you try and survive using methods that used to work, you may be in for a surprise. When the car was invented, a lot of horse and buggy companies went out of business. When the Internet was invented, a lot of newspapers vanished. Those that cling to the old ways don't usually do so well. But those that are mentally flexible, able to think "outside the box" and look for opportunities may find them EVERYWHERE. But you've got to not only actively seek them, but know HOW to take advantage of them. Nobody is going to show you how. The better you can "think," the more things you can learn (and learn on the fly, not sitting in a classroom) the more opportunities you'll see. After all, all those stone cold players who bought when there was blood in the streets made HUGE FORTUNES. Click Here To Learn More
