Dreams and Foggy Thinking


The keys to dream recall are gaining awareness of the dream while the dream is occurring, and applying a sufficiently quiet level of awareness so that your retrieval of the dream is not derailed by your thoughts. I want to focus on the second of these: learning to think quietly...

COVID-19 Chronicles


I've collected my pieces on COVID-19 into a book that follows the virus's public appearance, my experience with it, and its effect on science and government. Most of all, the book is a hypnotic learning tool to strengthen immunity and spirit.

Where does the virus's fit in our ecology? What have we done to create this ecology and what can we do about it?

This introductory chapter orients you to the following chapters and audio files.

As small as you may think you are, you are not small because these systems are not entirely stable, and that’s what your mind is for: to guide these systems. You are the intelligence in the machine.

Human health is the great global connector.” Kathleen Sebelius

The Voyage (a hypnotic induction)


The Voyage traces the steps from the conscious to the subconscious. Its goal is to help you navigate in the current, chaotic environment by lowering the keel of your emotional balance and raising the sail of intuition. These will help you find direction as you move through this fluid situation.

The visualization uses a land-ocean-boat metaphor. It doesn’t require that you have boating experience, in fact, it’s better if you don’t. That way, what you imagine will be your mind’s current territory, not one from memory. 

Tell others about this guided visualization. It will help them better manage their stress.

For further background listen to COVID-19, Time to Look Around, or read it as illustrated text on my website HERE.

Do not listen to this HYPNOTIC AUDIO while operating machinery or driving a car!

COVID-19: Hypnosis for Your Lymphatic System


Sleep has been verified as an immune enhancer, and it may be the most effective thing you can do.

It is my untested belief that you can enhance your body’s recuperative efforts during sleep by deepening your interoceptive sense before sleeping.

This piece discusses how you might achieve this through imagining, sensing, and focusing on the tissues, organs, and processes. Do this by listening to the subsequent podcast titled "Your Lymphatic System." This will take you to a deeper connection with these autonomic processes.

Into The Road

We have many boundaries to what we see and feel. These boundaries are sensory, physical, and temporal. Boundaries of ideas, safety, and possibilities. You set boundaries in every dimension of which you’re aware, and aspects of experience that you once had but have now forgotten.

This is an introduction to the guided visualization "There and Back Again," a separate, hypnotic visualization audio file leading you toward the boundary of self.
