Who are you?
You run a business or advance your career yet you notice something isn’t entirely right.
You might notice that you’re running in circles. You agonize over some decisions. You tell yourself “I just haven’t thought of the right solution yet” and you spend lots of time over-researching the problem.
But you still feel resistance to some actions and some decisions. You go back and forth several times over. You feel stalled, skeptical, and a bit disappointed with the trajectory of your life.
And you want the solution NOW.
It feels frustrating because with your experience things should move faster. Your overanalyzing mind seeks clarity and makes you consider yet another course, training, or coaching program.
Can you relate to the situation of Ben, a CEO of a 700+ employee company, who couldn’t figure out why he feels resistance to his idea of pivoting the company?
Or maybe the story of Mark, a solopreneur, who procrastinated over a fairly simple business decision resonates with you better?
Maybe you feel like Jenny, who couldn’t understand the source of her self-sabotaging actions?
Both could see how they were wasting time. Both could see they should be way ahead already. They both wanted the solution now, not after a six-month-long coaching program.
I listened to similar stories over many years. And understood the root cause.
What’s the root cause?
Neither you nor Ben lack knowledge.
Neither you nor Mark lack experience.
Neither you not Jenny lack energy.
Spinning wheels is a result of your subconscious and conscious minds colliding. That’s exactly what therapy or coaching is trying to reveal and fix. And they work, of course! Otherwise, they wouldn’t be multibillion-dollar industries. Internal issues are holding us back and often prevent us from moving at a pace that is satisfactory.
Essentially, it’s your mind rugpulling you over and over again.
However, in many cases, especially when it comes to the business/career sides of our lives, there’s a shortcut – asking your subconscious mind directly “what the f… do you want?”
Imagine (quoting my clients) “finding the root cause of the problem that wasn’t apparent”, “uncovering the truth about the issue”, and “gaining a unique outside perspective“. The relief and the boost to your productivity can soon be your own experience.
How enjoyable would be to feel again that you make progress?
The secret lies in harnessing the power of the hypnagogic state.
Power of the hypnagogic state
A hypnagogic state is something you experience almost every day, on the transition from wakefulness to sleep. It is accompanied by a number of sensory experiences, hallucinations, sounds, and feelings. According to Silberer (an Austrian psychoanalyst who studied the phenomenon), hypnagogic hallucinations represent whatever one is thinking at a time, without repression or censorship. Why is it important? Because we tend to self-censor/repress all the time. Reasons are plenty: insecurities, social conditioning but also the inability to recognize ideas because our verbal mind is shouting too loud for the non-verbal mind to have a say.
Beethoven, Richard Wagner, Walter Scott, Salvador Dali, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla and Isaac Newton – have credited hypnagogia and related states with enhancing their creativity. It was their subconscious mind which generated these musical ideas, paintings or inventions.
The problem is however in getting into a hypnagogic state with reasonable consistency. As the legend goes, Edison would sit in a chair when he got sleepy, holding a ball bearing in his left hand. He would get into a “hypnagogic state” and start to solve problems. When Edison eventually moved into a deep sleep, his hand would relax and the ball bearing would drop into a metal bucket he kept by his chair. That would wake him up so he could continue the process.
To this day there are people who advocate the “metal balls and a bowl” method. There are also some who try more modern approaches.
I’ve experimented with sensory deprivation chambers (known also as flotation tanks).
Do they work? Yes. At $50-100 a session.
I’ve also experimented with brain entrainment devices that improve neuron synchronization using infrared pulsing light (helmets that flash infrared light).
Do they work? Yes. At ca. $2000 per device.
So, is the power of the hypnagogic state available only to those who are either wealthy or have plenty of time to train themselves with metal balls and a bowl?
Fortunately, through my own experimentation over many years, I designed a repeatable process of harnessing the power of hypnagogia. It consists of three stages:
- Priming before the session – define the problem. You might think that you know it already, after all, you’ve spent months digesting it. But without a proper examination, it’s unlikely that you’re working on the right thing. I call it sometimes the problem redefinition phase because it’s often about gaining a fresh perspective.
- Entering a hypnagogic state – with a little-known trick of following a thought, you can predictably enter a hypnagogic state instead of analyzing on the spot. You will receive answers or hints mainly in a non-verbal way, through images, movies, or feelings/insights.
- Post-session analysis – another essential step where you write down insights and analyze them using simple reframing exercises.
Is a single session enough? You bet.
These are screenshots from messages my clients sent to me after a single call.
How you will benefit from my approach?
- You solve some of the issues on the spot, within an hour or so.
- You gain unprecedented clarity on the challenges you face.
- You learn how to enter a hypnagogic state to leverage years of experience stored in the subconscious mind.
- You learn how and when to use this process to effectively resolve obstacles, throughout your whole life.
