How does hypnosis give people who want to quit smoking an edge over old-fashioned willpower?


I work with few smokers because the damage can be shifted to other areas of the person’s life, and I take the stand that is symptom-shifting, not healing. There is a brainwashing of society by the anti-smoking Nazis and the media who are now focusing on scaring people to stop smoking as powerfully as tobacco companies brainwashed people into starting. Stopping smoking is no guarantee that a person’s life improves. A person may stop smoking but die of hypertension, overweight or with a broken heart.


So then how do you help people?


The secret to changing something about yourself is this: If you access and work with your core programming, you can change. Our core programming lives in the subconscious mind, not the conscious mind.


Why do psychiatrists outnumber hypnotists?


Hypnosis was shelved by the academic illuminati as Freud, the “father of psychoanalysis,” could not make it work. Stage hypnotists kept the art and craft alive until the 1950s, and then slowly the power of formal hypnotism for change and healing has been evolving and now exploding.


Are stage hypnotists the real deal?


Stage hypnotists, while their tactics may be questionable (also damned funny), are some of the best hypnotists in that they understand how to cross that line into the subconscious realm, and they can do it quickly! How many licensed mental-health professionals can get a person to bite into an onion and believe it is an apple?


What about folks who can’t seem to go under?


Everyone enters a hypnotic state numerous times every day. Hypnosis is not being put under anything; it is the shift of focus from the conscious mind to the subconscious mind.
