Success Through Parallel Universe Jump


I am excited to announce 2 major new podcasts, which you can access from our podcast page. The podcasts are in the Mind Mechanix series.

Many people experience failure after failure in their life, and don’t understand why. It seems no matter how hard they try things just don’t work out.

Well now, you have an innovative solution to this problem at your fingertips.

There are an infinite number of parallel universes, and there are an infinite number of you’s in those universes. No matter what it is you can think of, it exists somewhere in one of those universes. There is a you who is a business tycoon worth billions, there is a you who is a famous painter, a famous rock star, a famous writer, etc. No matter what it is that you want to be or achieve, one of these yous in an alternative universe has already achieved it and could easily guide you along the path of success they took to get there.

I know of a man in his 80’s who decided to learn to paint, play the piano, etc. At the age where most people are headed to retirement homes, he is alert and aware and starting new projects and learning things he has never done before.

I have had a similar experience. I am starting down some important new paths, and I would never dream of doing so without consulting the me in a parallel universe where I have already accomplished these things.

And you can do it to. You can make regular visits to this alternative you for advice, knowledge, and the edge you will need to achieve whatever it is you want to achieve.

I have uploaded two podcasts on this subject. The first discusses in detail what can be done and how you can access this other universe and consult with yourself there. The second podcast is a guided meditation where you will actually do this.

Stop struggling today and learn how things are really done from yourself in another universe that is an expert. This idea may sound strange at first, but by the time you are done with the first podcast, you will fully understand how to do this.

So visit our Mind Mechanix podcast today and make those New Year’s resolutions come true.

Are You Ready to Be Coached? Part 1


A life coach, or life skills coach, as they’re occasionally called, is basically a personal trainer for your life. As the name connotes, these personal coaches work with persons to better assorted areas of their lives.

Depending on your circumstances and how you decide to work with your coach, they can take on a number of roles. These may include motivation coach, personal development coach, executive coach, small business or career coach, or relationship coach.

Read further for some details on what to look for in a life coach.


The Life Coach


Finding the right people who will guide you to success in every aspect in life!




Basically, your coach is there to inspire and motivate you to do better, in a particular way. Commonly, you choose the areas that you want to work on (objectives), and your coach works with you to arrange change.


Are You Ready For A Life Coach


A lot of coaches will offer a free coaching session from time to time so that you are able to get a feel for how they set about things. This allows you to not only give their services a trial run coaching session to see if you are ready for it, but likewise to try out the individual coach and see if you “get” their style or not.

There are examples like Tony Robbins who offers a program that you are able to do at home on your own. Make sure you understand, however that working with a coach over the phone or in person has a level of accountability to it. When you take a course that requires you to work on your own, you’ll have to make sure that you follow through on your own.

However, I am offering a new, less expensive model that allows you to communicate with me via email so that you still get the personal touch without the high cost of traditional coaching. You get the same materials and the same hypnosis sessions as needed, but without the expense of the regular coaching model.

Bear in mind that most individuals who purchase books and courses

of this nature either never take the course, or never act on it! Do not be one of those individuals! Action will set you apart from the bunch every time!

A few folks who have been successfully coached wind up pursuing a career as a coach themselves. If this fascinates you, you may want to have a look at a system for developing a coaching career. So, who knows? If you like being coached, you might love coaching as well!

So, if you’re in need of a change, or prepared for a change… or if changes have happened to you that you did not expect… get a life coach! The biggest, most highly respected and highest paid athletes in the world have coaches, why shouldn’t you?


Who can be served by the services of a life coach?

1. Those that recognize that they can be and do much more.

2. Those ready to make a huge change in their lives, or who have just made a huge change and need help coping.

3. Those who want to better their jobs, their businesses, or their relationships.

4. Those who have sustained a loss, such as divorce or a failed business.

5. Anybody wanting to shed old, ineffective habits in favor of new more effective ones

6. In brief, anybody wanting to improve!


While a few coaches have specialties, and they all have their own style, they typically work with all types of individuals on several fronts. One word of caution, though… you must be ready for this.

Your coach will challenge you to do things that you usually may not do. Why else would you pay them? After all, if you could do it yourself, you wouldn’t need a coach!

Coaching and Hypnosis

Why I am changing to the coaching model and de-emphasizing the hypnosis model.


As a hypnotherapist of many years’ experience, I have watched as many patients transformed their lives an achieved goals they never thought they would ever achieve.

I have watched as smokers of many years have kicked the habit. I have observed people overcome many problems through the miracle of hypnotherapy. It is truly amazing indeed and gives me untold pleasure to watch these patients recover and improve.

But, as a hypnotherapist I can only see maybe 4-6 people per day, and since I am semi retired I don’t really want to see even half that many. And, when you add in the fact that we have lost our beautiful facility in Escazu, I decided it was time to make a drastic change for the better.

As many of you already know, I have in the past year added coaching to our list of available services. Unfortunately, coaching is a fairly new activity and not too many people understand the model yet – especially since there is much disagreement among the practitioners themselves.

Coaching, simply put, is a model for dealing with patients where they are and guiding them to where they want to be in life. Of course, since I am also a hypnotherapist, I can add an extra dimension to this that most coaches lack.

The ordinary coach, when confronted by a huge problem in their patient’s life, is equipped to deal with people through the conscious mind and will. As you already know if you’ve read my hypnosis pre-talk, this has certain limitations. However, by combining the worlds of hypnotherapy with that of coaching, I am able to break through these roadblocks much faster than an ordinary coach. Thus, the results of my coaching programs are much faster and better than the results obtained through ordinary coaching.

In other words, if we hit a roadblock in your progress, we can smash through it with a hypnosis session or two, whereas with another coach you world be stuck at the roadblock.

Another concern of mine has been the time constraints placed on me by continuing to see patients in person. This has become a very time consuming activity, and by consulting with people over the phone or skype as in coaching, I can help a lot more people than I otherwise could.

Finally, there is the high cost involved. For those not familiar with either hypnosis or coaching, both are very expensive and way beyond the reach of the average person. Rates are now at between $250-500.00/ hour. Although I have reduced these rates for Costa Rica, they are still higher than what the average person can pay.

To address this, I now have two options. One can take the traditional coaching model with regular telephonic contact, or, if one prefers I now have a new model where I will agree to answer up to one email per day Monday-Thursday for an affordable price that all can afford [price depends on subject matter covered.] You will receive e-books, pre-recoorded hypnosis sessions, and all of the same materials my regular coaching clients receive, but, because we are communicating via daily email, it is much cheaper to go this route than the traditional coaching route.

So, with these new options, coaching and hypnosis is now available to everyone who wants to change their lives!

Coaching for Your Success!

This is just a quick note to let you know that our group of Success and Self Improvement sites has been massively updated with lots of new resources and possibilities.

First off, our site Coaching Costa Rica has a lot more resources and options available now than ever before. We offer all different forms of coaching, including life coaching, goal setting, business development, sales mastery, spiritual development using the most advanced meditation techniques, etc. You can now order personal one on one sessions, conducted in person if you are in Costa Rica, or by phone or Skype for the rest of the world. You can combine this with personalized hypnosis sessions to rocket your success to the top in whatever area you of life you want to improve in.

We will soon be offering a new form of coaching program for those who are either too busy or can’t afford the traditional personalized coaching mode. This new series is under development as I write these lines, and if you have any special requests in this area just let us know and we will try to accommodate it.

Simply put, this exciting new mode of coaching will give you one or several e-books or online courses to read, covering the subject area you want to improve in, along with the right to ask personalized questions of me once per day Monday through Thursday through Private Messages through a special member account in our online forum.

This mode of operation will work best, as I said above, for those who are either too busy to attend to a live weekly coaching session, or can’t afford the more costly mode of coaching via telephone or skype. You will also receive at least one pre-recorded hypnosis session, and sometimes more, to help cement your achievement of your goals. This news has not been announced yet, although I am posting a copy of this message to my blogs and the forum today.

Personal Mastery

Personal mastery is about approaching life from a different perspective.  Sometimes people

would refer to it as a journey towards continuous improvement.  Personal  mastery is guided

with key principles like vision, personal purpose, creative tension, commitment to truth and

understanding the subconscious mind.

One of the most important fundamental aspects of personal mastery is personal vision.

Personal mastery when combined with personal vision can create a framework or guiding

philosophy on how you can operate and live your life.  Some people would say that personal

vision serves as a guide that would keep you on track.

Followers of personal mastery see that there are great opportunities to improve their

growth.  Followers recognize that there are many avenues for growth and opportunities like

books, tapes, lectures and school courses.  People also benefit from organizations
in their quest for personal mastery.

Personal mastery is about loving yourself and expressing your gifts to its fullest.  Some

would think that personal mastery is controlling and limiting one self, but actually it is

about understanding your personality.  To control or overcome some habits, it would be

important to identify how and why those habits arise.  The more you suppress things, the

more you would have difficulty in conquering and overcoming it.

Personal mastery is self-discipline.  It is about taking responsibility for the direction

that your life is going to take.  You would slowly realize that you can do anything with the

aide of your skills and talents.  Discipline would clarify and deepen your perspective in

life.  Those who quest for personal mastery would develop patience and see life objectively.

Personal mastery can actually help you become successful in life.  You can say that you have

developed personal mastery if you are starting to fully understand your strengths, talents

and your purpose in life.  Personal mastery enables you to be inspired, energized and happy

with your life. You start to show a sense of commitment in changing on how people perceive

life and the world.  The ultimate thing about personal mastery is that you would always feel

that you are guided and supported by God.

It is also important for a person who is in quest for personal mastery to develop integrity,

humility, justice and industry.  Actually, these are “rules” on how we could conduct

ourselves professionally, socially and spiritually.

Peter Senge said that attaining personal mastery has no shortcuts or no “quick fixes.”

Sometimes it would take a lifetime for personal mastery to be attained.  Personal mastery

detaches a person from self-interest or selfishness and encourage people towards providing

care and service to other people.  Also individuals who follow personal mastery see the

connections in their surroundings and perceive everything as a whole.

Proactive behaviour is also something that personal mastery helps you to develop.  Reactive

behaviour like thinking beforehand hand that you cannot do things is dealt with when

developing personal mastery.  Actions and service that you provide are based on how you can

creatively maximize your skills.

To summarize it, personal mastery guides you to develop being aware with your beliefs,

attitudes and behaviour impacts.  It also enables you to accept yourself and be responsible

with your own action, attitude, and thought.

Experts would say that personal mastery could be truly gained by living purposefully and by

living with integrity.  Living purposefully would include showing talents, gifts and

strengths to achieve goals and be successful.  Living with integrity is by integrating your

ideals, standards and behaviour.
