Understanding the human zoo and learning how to master it

The biggest emotional driver of humanity would have to be “curiosity”. You see this in action every day, especially in advertising. Also, if you search the web. The taglines are designed to make you look, to make you follow through. Such as “you should see what this lady did in the stairwell” now such a statement triggers curiosity, and then you click on the YouTube clip or the article, and before you know it two hours of gone by and you’ve wasted a lot of time.

The other big emotional driver is to have or get things instantly.

We live in a world where we want instant communication, instant action, instant direction, and people haveing to get back to you is now annoying and creates an anxiety.

The mind can’t stand not knowing.

If I said to you “there’s something really important I need to tell you, but I’ll tell you tomorrow” sent in a text or phone message, how anxious would you become. The mind does not like a blank, it tries to fill in the pieces. You start to think what could it be what could they want how important is it?… Depending on the inflection of the message, narcissists do this all the time. And also people who live in drama land.

Those are live in drama land are quite different, they always ring you with a crisis wanting you to come up with an instant solution. The stress in them implies that there crisis’s immediate and in some cases life-threatening.

We live in a world of manipulation.

The best definition I heard of manipulation is, “manipulation is influence without consent.” Putting the cart in front of the horse, an example being: someone says to “you can you help me, I need to know where the airport is, as I’m feeling really stuck in what direction it is and need to catch my flight and I am already running late”, (crisis). So you give directions on how to get there swiftly and accurately, they look confused and then say “can you drive me.” So a little event turns into a huge event with manipulators, and they make you feel responsible for everything that’s going on in their lives.Also making you feel responsible. It is a huge sign that you are being manipulated.

Diplomacy is a nice word for lying.

Diplomancy, where you learn to trust no one. Those people that are nice to your face and say terrible things behind your back. Its cousin is small minded gossip.

The ramifications of instant media.

Causes problems in people where they post online or post something which they immediately regret. And since most of your bosses will look at your social media footprint, it can sometimes lead you into being fired, or not suitable to hold the role that you have.


People may suffer a myriad of psychological conditions, such as depression and anxiety. Also there are the psychopaths, sociopaths, narcissists, et cetera and you wonder why anyone really survives any of this.

Self Mastery.

If you look your earliest life’s experience training ground – either your parents, society, social media, advertising, television (especially soap operas, which teach you disregard for ethics, people and morality), and you then take into account the news, and the negativity of the world, no wonder people are unhappy, depressed, miserable and anxious. And this becomes a foundational background stress everyone experiences.

Negativity of the world.

So once you realise we live in a sea of negativity, a deluge of how to get your life wrong, then being measurable is a consequence of living in drama land. However, it’s easy to disengage from it, and I don’t mean that you go live in a cave somewhere on an island retreat. But learning how to navigate through this sea of negativity and come through it somewhat unscathed, without being too damaged is a skill worth having.

Retrain your brain Jedi style.

We retrain your brain with hypnotherapy, and give you skills to emotionally handle the world around you; the world which acts more like an erupting volcano, rather than a calm peaceful ocean.


Most people spend more money on their cars (and what the neighbours think), than spend time on strengthening their most valuable asset – their minds. We know the brain is neuro plastic and what that means is simply that you never stop learning, you adapt and evolve.

Retraining focus.

We know that what you focus upon, fills your consciousness, and when something fills your mind it dominates, rewires and strengthens that part of the brain that is attached to fight and flight. If you look for disasters you’ll find them everywhere, if you look for peace and tranquility you’ll find that too – everywhere.

Anxiety as the norm.

Most people live in a highly anxious state which is now become the normal for most, and most don’t realise or recognise this anxious stated all. It is only when they relax, really relax via hypnosis that they discover how anxious that really been. And fight flight anxiety can lead to a lot of health problems, and when anxiety runs out of energy, it falls into depression. Especially when you see news events or dramas from others, or in social media that you have no power over and cannot change.

The retraining program that I utilize.

Learning to shift gears with the mind, and learning to navigate is something you have to learn. We retrain your brain via hypnosis, as well as giving you vital skills in navigating all of this, which is essential for health, wellness and living a balanced happy life.

Are you ready for the challenge?

My Very Own Podcast

I created my very own podcast at https://matfav58.podbean.com a pod cast is a very good way to know about your hypnotherapist (me), and to get an understanding on interesting topics that I will present from time to time.

On my podcast you will find a Deep Relaxation Affirmations. A relaxing hypnotic meditation that you play at night just before sleep. Never while driving a car or operating machinery because it is relaxing meditative and hypnotic. There is also a five-part series on affirmations and how to master them.

The story of Deep Relaxation Affirmations is very interesting.  It is designed to be played as you drift off to sleep, this allows your deeper mind to integrate and work upon the results you want…. naturally.

Can you believe that originally it was on an audiotape! I had a radio show where I would give away this freely on cassette’s to people who are stressed or full of anxiety. It was only recently rerecorded in high-quality digital format. And made into MP3. The original audio tape recording was too old to transfer or fix – which is a good thing for you as this recording will always remain free to everyone.

Later on, I found my way on many radio stations, as well is television and print media. And although this was good, I really just wanted to connect with people and help them. That is my primary objective today.

The gentle music, water and bird sounds were recorded in nature and not in a studio, thus adding to the relaxation response.  Recorded at Wentworth falls NSW Australia, in the grandeur of the Blue Mountains. With some music it sounds absolutely wonderful and acts as a backing music track to all my relaxation recordings.  Many people have attested to it changing their lives in positive ways without being intrusive.

In my life I’ve also had the privilege of working with celebrities, highly professional people, but more importantly my focus has always been on the everyday person.

So please have a listen to the pod cast and enjoy.

My professional services as a hypnotherapy is available to you either in person or via Skype or similar, and I certainly look forward to helping you in your quest for well-being.

Brain Tune-Ups

A long time ago it was once thought that when we reached adulthood, around the age of 18 to 20, that the brain was fully formed and that was it, what you had is what you are stuck with. No-one ever thought that the brain is what they call – neuro plastic. What this actually means by the work “plastic” is much like Plasticine, being flexible, rewiring of the neurons, the ability to create new pathways, and is in a constant state of learning adapting and evolving.

When you consider that if the brain was set by the time you are 20, then it really couldn’t learn anything new or adapt to the evolution of society i.e. the Internet mobile phones and technology etc . Now apart from the fact that what your grandparents had to brain process in one year, we now have to do that same brain processing in one day, so we are hit with overload. We get stressed, and the problem lies in the fact that we do not recognize those ever increasing stress levels. IE, high stress becomes the new norm. Energetically speaking, high stress can collapse into depression.

Yet, because stress is uniquely subjective, we do not know or fail to recognize an overloading of stress,until something breaks, and by that time a lot of work needs to be done in healing the mind, and the brain.

In fact, most will spend more and their cars, more on exercise, more on their loved ones, yet fail to look after their own minds ability to process, and this is a signal that the brain is in overload. Such statements as “I can’t cope”, or “I can’t deal with that now” . Those that are in emotional overload. Those that continually procrastinate, those that leave the known world and only play computer games, smoke or gamble, and those that do drugs. Or try other coping mechanisms.

So everyone’s brain needs a tune-up, and I really mean a tune-up. Keeps you running well, keeps the mind healthy, allows you to adapt to the ever changing landscape of overwhelming information. Most people go to yoga, some do weights, others cope in different ways. So think of a hypnosis session, as time out, a time to retrain the brain. Keeps you mentally healthy.

We see a hypno workout at its most valuable with study memory and recall, or where people get stressed at exams. We see this with the release of habits that are bad for you, or simply to pull you out of a stagnant or stuck state, or simply just to allow your brain to reboot and be as sharp as a tack, healthy in mind, action and outlook. When this happens, you have a lot of energy and new outlook on life. You feel refreshed.

Once upon a time when you only had to process a very small amount brain wise, a good night sleep was sufficient, but that doesn’t hold true anymore.

Regardless of how you handle stress, or how you manage stress. Notice these terms No one ever says to let go of stress or to retrain your brain in a different way, so stress does not become part of you.

Think of those martial artists, they are super trained to move but they think in a different way. They are trained in mind which flows into body. Most of their moves a reflex action without even thinking. They become a master of their environment, and I want you to become a master of your environment. To see you having a happy fulfilled life.

So I suggest you book a tune-up today, and get your brain refreshed and renewed and working for you in the way it was intended to be, and in a way that you want.

Pain Management

I was presenting a workshop on pain management for The Australian Society of clinical hypnotherapists, i.e. for other hypnotherapists to advance their skills on treating pain. Let Hypnosis be your key to managing pain – read on.

It is interesting to note: that before analgesics and painkillers came into play – pharmaceutically, hypnosis was the method of choice for controlling pain.

In fact, the earliest documents historically point to the value of hypnosis in the reduction of pain, and used in the elimination of pain altogether, were it came to war injuries and the need for doctors operate in the field.

Today when people think of pain management, they think of pain killer tablets from the chemist, or under a prescription from a doctor, and even painkillers that are under prescription are being less and less recommended due to their opioid content.

So, we now see a surge back into hypnosis, for not only controlling pain, but for protecting the liver from the damage that most painkillers can induce over time. There is nothing wrong with pain killers, only their extended continuous use that causes secondary problems for the body.

Dr Moskowitz  Author of Neuroplastic Transformation – Your Brain On Pain states that:

“Neuroplastic Transformation – In chronic pain: 16 places in your brain activate, ‘fire’ or ‘light up’ when pain signals are received by the brain. 9 of these places are in the conscious part of your brain, the Cerebral Cortex. In these 9 places only around 5% of the nerve cells are normally assigned the job of processing pain, but in chronic pain this can expand to 15-25% of the cells. Pain effectively hijacks valuable brain territory, stealing these brain cells from other important functions. The brain ‘learns’ pain, and we need to teach it to ‘unlearn’ pain’. “

There are different types of pain such as:

NOCICEPTIVE PAIN – Tissue Body damage. Examples include: Sprains  Bone fractures  Burns Bumps Bruises Obstructions Inflammation (from an infection or arthritic disorder)  Myofascial Pain(which may indicate abnormal muscle stresses). … The pain is typically well localized, constant, and often with an aching or throbbing quality.

INFLAMATORY PAIN  Inflammatory response. Examples are: Rheumatoid arthritis Bruises Broken bones Pulled muscles (with swelling, redness and later purple or yellowing of the skin).

NEUROPATHIC PAIN – Nerve damage.  Examples include: Post herpetic (or post-shingles) Neuralgia Reflex sympathetic – dystrophy / causalgia (nerve trauma) Components of cancer pain Phantom limb pain Entrapment neuropathy   (e.g., carpal tunnel syndrome), Peripheral neuropathy (widespread nerve damage).

ALLOPLASTIC PAIN  – Emotional response.   A reaction to feelings of stress, worry and being under threat or attack. Whole-organism responds to threat or stress. I.e. The Mind.

COMPLEX REGIONAL PAIN SYNDROME (CRPS) also called Reflex sympathetic dystrophy Psychosomatic pain Memory Pain Reactive – protective pain Complex regional pain is characterised by pain that is greater than would be expected from the injury that causes it.

The Mind Is Your key.  By creating a Hypno-Neuro Plastic Response to pain management, alleviation, and control with Hypnosis.

Pain is a survival mechanism whose purpose is to protect the body and alerts the immune system. A signal that something needs to be addressed, so after you’ve seen the doctor, got a diagnosis, or in recovery. Let hypnosis be your secret key to managing your pain more effectively, and to also accelerate the bodies healing potential.

Pain can only be processed in the brain as a nerve signal and under Hypnosis we can numb and dull that signal.  

Pain deepens pain (neuro rewiring). Pain can be triggered by physical, psychological, emotional and environmental conditions. The brain can reduce its sensitivity to pain. Pain can also be produced by memories.

All of which hypnosis can help you manage. But hypnosis does more than that, it trains the brain to respond and act in a different way to pain signals. And with hypnosis we can strengthen your skills to manage pain, were in some cases it no longer bothers you at all.

You do not have to suffer your suffering. Let my hypnotherapy pain management help you manage pain and retrain your brain. Why wait, book a session today.
