00:00:58.380 –> 00:01:01.440
Adrian Moreno: So yeah oh yeah potentially of the root word of it so.
00:01:02.130 –> 00:01:14.430
Steve Werner: There we go um but it didn’t start there for you, I mean nobody just wakes up one day and they’re like I can transform anybody, including myself, there had to be a road to reach this journey so where did it start for you specifically.
00:01:15.240 –> 00:01:22.920
Adrian Moreno: yeah absolutely so in order for me to like you know really make sure you have the best understanding of how this happened.
00:01:23.940 –> 00:01:33.120
Adrian Moreno: i’m gonna start and i’m a run through this as quick as I can, without missing the important parts, but about seven years ago, I was 100 pounds heavier than I am right now.
00:01:33.480 –> 00:01:41.010
Adrian Moreno: So I was extremely overweight and, at the time I was really just you know selling drugs even i’m unemployed.
00:01:41.370 –> 00:01:50.760
Adrian Moreno: didn’t really have anything going for me at the time, and I was okay with it kind of fat to say like I was like somebody who was very comfortable and didn’t want to change anything.
00:01:51.360 –> 00:01:57.570
Adrian Moreno: And you know, one day, though my like some urge came across me to call up my friend.
00:01:58.350 –> 00:02:06.570
Adrian Moreno: and tell him to you know hey come hang out smoke with me that’s just like talk chill and he was like sure, so I caught him to come over.
00:02:07.350 –> 00:02:16.170
Adrian Moreno: And if I go to I get up off of the couch and keep in mind, I don’t have a shirt on, and this is very important key factor of the story.
00:02:16.770 –> 00:02:26.610
Adrian Moreno: I didn’t have my shirt on and my doorbell ring, so I get up and I walk across the kitchen room are Walker across the kitchen to go to the live i’m to go to the front door.
00:02:27.150 –> 00:02:35.400
Adrian Moreno: And on the kitchen table my shirts hanging on the chair and I stopped, and I look at the shirt and i’m like should I put my shirt on to answer the door.
00:02:36.270 –> 00:02:42.300
Adrian Moreno: But then I was like oh just my friend Gilbert like it’s not like there’s some like women out there, I need to go put my shirt on floor so.
00:02:42.630 –> 00:02:56.100
Adrian Moreno: I just opened the door like a best friend I don’t really care so are open the door, and the first thing he says, like he saw me every day, but I guess he hadn’t seen me without a shirt for a long time, and so he saw me that day, and he was like.
00:02:57.450 –> 00:03:08.520
Adrian Moreno: Adrian like dude you got fat, it was like you really like got fat man, but he didn’t say like he said it way blunt, and you some cuss words in it and just telling me I how was and.
00:03:09.030 –> 00:03:15.300
Adrian Moreno: I guess, for the first time it really stung I knew I was getting out of shape because I gained 100 pounds in four years.
00:03:15.660 –> 00:03:23.640
Adrian Moreno: So it was very noticeable at this time of my life even my mom was calling saying like agent you’re getting overweight so that’s how you know you’re starting to get overweight right.
00:03:25.050 –> 00:03:34.590
Adrian Moreno: However, something stung about the way he said it, and it really like got me, and I remember we’re in the backyard talking and all of a sudden, I just.
00:03:35.250 –> 00:03:40.800
Adrian Moreno: Say hey look i’m about to lose all this weight man like there’s no way I can keep doing this is not, who I am.
00:03:41.520 –> 00:03:46.800
Adrian Moreno: And he didn’t, believe me, of course I wouldn’t have believed me at the time, either, but I just said, you know what screw it i’m gonna lose all this weight.
00:03:47.520 –> 00:03:55.200
Adrian Moreno: And then Sure enough, I wake up the next day, and to make a long story short man within nine months I lost 91 pounds.
00:03:55.890 –> 00:04:05.190
Adrian Moreno: And within that time span my entire life I don’t know if you’ve ever been on like a weight loss journey or any kind of physical transformation, but if it’s that drastic.
00:04:05.730 –> 00:04:14.070
Adrian Moreno: It is the most a life altering consciousness altering thing like you know your day to day is so different, and in that time span.
00:04:14.940 –> 00:04:24.690
Adrian Moreno: I started helping people get in shape, you know, say, I want to help people get in shape this is fun, so I started helping people get in shape and I was loving it, but then I noticed.
00:04:25.410 –> 00:04:36.750
Adrian Moreno: Some clients would pay me three to $5,000 and they would change their whole life right I day to lose the weight that hit the ground running and everyday get what they paid for other clients.
00:04:37.950 –> 00:04:45.480
Adrian Moreno: would pay me the same amount of money have access to the same information to the same coaching and not do anything with it.
00:04:47.040 –> 00:04:58.110
Adrian Moreno: This was very interesting to me, I was like, how can some people do this and, basically, I wanted to learn how we can why human beings do what they do.
00:04:58.500 –> 00:05:09.960
Adrian Moreno: Because, if I can understand why human beings do what they do, then I can change that fundamental factor and actually get them to get the results that they want, which just led me to researching.
00:05:10.650 –> 00:05:20.250
Adrian Moreno: All this stuff online and I ended up stumbling upon something called hypnosis which is basically what i’m doing today now so that’s what led me to where i’m at right now.
00:05:21.240 –> 00:05:31.290
Steve Werner: Okay, so we’re going to come back to hypnosis because I okay anyone listening to this, I know what they’re thinking right away they’re like tell me how you lost 91 pounds, what was the diet, what was the workout.
00:05:32.700 –> 00:05:39.330
Steve Werner: But what you pointed to is the truth, like loud and clear and it’s right in front of people.
00:05:39.600 –> 00:05:50.520
Steve Werner: it’s not about the diet, there are 50 different diets you could go on today and lose the weight right, I mean you can go on YouTube you can find a diet you Google diet any one of them will work.
00:05:51.360 –> 00:05:58.650
Steve Werner: Any one of them any one of the workout programs, some are easier, some are harder, they will all result in you losing weight if you take action.
00:05:58.950 –> 00:06:07.740
Steve Werner: The thing that you hit on and going back to the conversation you had in the backyard, I wanted to know what was the thing that triggered in your head.
00:06:08.280 –> 00:06:12.030
Steve Werner: That made you take action, because 99 out of 100 people.
00:06:12.420 –> 00:06:23.370
Steve Werner: would have said the same thing they would have said, you know what I need to lose weight my mom’s calling me fat my best friend, is calling me fat like I feel fat i’m upset i’m in this downward spiral, a lot of people would have said.
00:06:24.570 –> 00:06:28.920
Steve Werner: My life sucks but there’s nothing I can do about it or my life sucks i’m going to lose weight.
00:06:29.400 –> 00:06:42.540
Steve Werner: But then they would have got up the next day, and they would have a dozen donuts and they wouldn’t have done anything so, what was the thing and then we’ll get to hypnosis I don’t see because I love that stuff but what in that moment, can you go back like what triggered.
00:06:43.080 –> 00:06:44.130
Steve Werner: Set you emotion.
00:06:44.670 –> 00:06:57.720
Adrian Moreno: it’s so interesting because I can’t believe nobody’s ever asked me that very specific question, and now that I go back and I put myself in that moment, I know it sounds cliche and you’ve probably heard this time and time again man, but I guess it was like.
00:06:59.340 –> 00:07:09.150
Adrian Moreno: I was like up, I guess, I had I experienced so much pain that I just wasn’t willing to do it anymore, and, for some reason.
00:07:10.440 –> 00:07:20.370
Adrian Moreno: It was just like a no brainer for me because keep in mind for years prior to that had a six pack, I was in shape I was this really fit athletic guy.
00:07:20.940 –> 00:07:31.560
Adrian Moreno: You know I went through a high school breakup and I started just eating and doing all these like drugs and things crew it, let me just I don’t care, and so I think it will just take a big conviction that that wasn’t me.
00:07:32.070 –> 00:07:47.040
Adrian Moreno: I could get a feel like me, I was like there’s no way that this this like version of Adrian there’s no way that this is actually what I am and I think that’s like what it was now that I really think about it.
00:07:47.700 –> 00:07:53.370
Steve Werner: So Okay, that is super interesting the big Tony robbins fan i’m sure you’ve listened to some Tony.
00:07:53.430 –> 00:07:54.720
Adrian Moreno: Oh yeah oh yeah man.
00:07:54.930 –> 00:08:01.770
Steve Werner: But the Okay, that the thing that they have found in psychology is that we always revert.
00:08:02.970 –> 00:08:11.490
Steve Werner: To what we see ourselves as what our inner image of ourselves is is what we revert to.
00:08:12.240 –> 00:08:22.320
Steve Werner: So if you see yourself as somebody who is will say poor because a lot of people say like money’s a problem or see yourself as middle class or see yourself as living paycheck to paycheck.
00:08:22.800 –> 00:08:33.270
Steve Werner: No matter what you do you win the lottery all of that money will disappear in a short amount of time, and you will go back to the same patterns and the same habitual wised.
00:08:34.080 –> 00:08:41.460
Steve Werner: Life that you have had if you continue to see yourself as that you have to change the inner person which hypnosis and nlp is great for.
00:08:41.850 –> 00:08:42.240
Adrian Moreno: Oh yeah.
00:08:42.300 –> 00:08:53.190
Steve Werner: What I heard heard you say in your answer also was you hit a place of pain pain triggered you to say, this is not me you didn’t say.
00:08:53.520 –> 00:09:06.960
Steve Werner: i’m a fat person i’m a person who struggles with obesity i’m person who is overweight, you said, this is not me and I didn’t put those words in your mouth we didn’t talk about this before the episode, but that is 100%.
00:09:07.620 –> 00:09:17.880
Steve Werner: People hit a place of pain, this is a training that I actually do for people it’s called the one through 10 pain scale right one is extreme pain rock bottom 10 is euphoric top of the world.
00:09:18.270 –> 00:09:28.920
Steve Werner: Most people live their life in a stage between four and seven they’ll they’ll be in pain, they don’t like it they’re unhappy but they’re not in enough pain that it triggers a change.
00:09:29.310 –> 00:09:30.840
Steve Werner: And they never get happy enough.
00:09:31.020 –> 00:09:42.120
Steve Werner: To go to the next level either like if you’re at a 10 you’re just in so much momentum that’s where like Michael Jordan and Kobe live right like they were like i’m so good at this, I am going to keep dominating.
00:09:43.200 –> 00:09:46.890
Steve Werner: And like if they felt like an eight they were in pain, so they worked harder and harder.
00:09:47.490 –> 00:10:00.960
Steve Werner: Anyway, it was really interesting to hear you say that, so you hit this moment pain, this is not, who I am Nine months later in that nine month period, because I think a lot of people glance over this to like.
00:10:01.800 –> 00:10:09.270
Steve Werner: In that nine month period, how many days, did you have where you got up and you didn’t want to do it or days, where you’re like dude I could eat some host right now.
00:10:09.570 –> 00:10:10.050
Steve Werner: or.
00:10:10.500 –> 00:10:14.340
Steve Werner: You know what I mean like how did, how did that period, go for you.
00:10:14.880 –> 00:10:22.770
Adrian Moreno: This may be an answer that most people are not used to whenever it, especially when it comes to weight loss man like especially what.
00:10:23.280 –> 00:10:33.720
Adrian Moreno: Because, at the end of the day, weight loss and we’re going to get very real about it weight loss is changing your day to day decisions changing your habitual decisions that’s what waylon you got to change your habitual divisions.
00:10:34.410 –> 00:10:42.480
Adrian Moreno: And that’s difficult for a lot of people, however, for me when I say I lost 91 pounds in nine months.
00:10:43.740 –> 00:10:49.080
Adrian Moreno: It felt very natural like it was a very I guess I wanted it so bad.
00:10:50.100 –> 00:10:58.200
Adrian Moreno: That I did not want to screw up like I did not want to go back to my old way of living, it was very like, in other words.
00:10:58.740 –> 00:11:01.530
Adrian Moreno: It was very easy for me to wake up earlier.
00:11:01.920 –> 00:11:13.950
Adrian Moreno: Do my workout very easy for me to meal prep eat the food, I wanted to eat, of course, I had some days, where I was like well I don’t want to hit legs, today, you know, of course, I had those days, where i’m like what I like to.
00:11:14.340 –> 00:11:22.710
Adrian Moreno: eat me and have an extra blueberry donut today, you know, but I think the most significant aspect of it is.
00:11:23.670 –> 00:11:41.670
Adrian Moreno: I have such a natural tendency to live in a particular way because, like you said that self image, the way we see ourselves when I made that decision on September 19 2017 to lose all of that weight that was a very specific data made that decision when I made that decision.
00:11:43.020 –> 00:11:53.010
Adrian Moreno: In my mind, I was a healthy person I was like i’m gonna lose all this weight, because this is not me this bodies on me because I.
00:11:53.610 –> 00:12:00.240
Adrian Moreno: Am way i’m sharp i’m healthy i’m a very you know, like successful person, this is not, who I am.
00:12:00.750 –> 00:12:12.780
Adrian Moreno: And so I guess, because I was so convinced on that self image and already had data from what that what it used to look like at that point in my life because i’ve already lived like that it was really easy for me to.
00:12:13.740 –> 00:12:20.370
Adrian Moreno: living in alignment with that image, because at the end of the day, your self image is the is like the beginning.
00:12:20.910 –> 00:12:32.670
Adrian Moreno: Of all your thoughts all of your habits all of your beliefs, because they have to they have to mirror that self image so um yeah man that’s it that’s my long answer to that it was just.
00:12:33.930 –> 00:12:34.560
Steve Werner: that’s good, though.
00:12:34.920 –> 00:12:37.560
Adrian Moreno: very interesting very interesting experience.
00:12:38.430 –> 00:12:47.100
Steve Werner: I mean it’s I think you are correct when you have one of my favorite quotes is a used to have a hanging on the wall in my other office um.
00:12:47.550 –> 00:12:58.770
Steve Werner: It says something along the lines of obstacles are the things that you see when you take your eyes off the goal when you are looking when you like see like i’m in i’m in shape that’s who I am like.
00:12:59.400 –> 00:13:08.190
Steve Werner: It doesn’t matter the alarm goes off at 545 i’m excited to get out of bed, I want to do those workouts I because I see the weight coming off of me right.
00:13:08.640 –> 00:13:12.030
Steve Werner: And the reason that I asked the question, though, is because I think a lot of people.
00:13:12.630 –> 00:13:20.580
Steve Werner: They approach it as a sprint instead of a marathon right a lot of people would have taken the same thing and said i’m losing 100 pounds this month like.
00:13:21.120 –> 00:13:26.760
Steve Werner: Never gonna seen anything like this i’m not i’m going to go on a water fast i’m going to work out eight hours a day.
00:13:27.030 –> 00:13:39.990
Steve Werner: And then, a weekend they’re not seeing the results that they expected right, I hear all this all the time in the business field i’m going to make a million dollars in my first three months in business Gary vee said, if I just grind i’ll be there, well.
00:13:40.800 –> 00:13:54.270
Steve Werner: dude like I talked to a guy last week he wanted to start teaching people Japanese so they could read Japanese comic books, he didn’t have a degree in Japanese he couldn’t read Japanese very well, he said he read it, a second grade level, I asked him.
00:13:55.500 –> 00:14:10.050
Steve Werner: He had no marketing no budget and no students, but yet he was trying to sell $1,000 a month coaching program to learn to read Japanese is there, somebody out there who would pay him, maybe one somewhere.
00:14:10.530 –> 00:14:13.860
Steve Werner: Right, you could probably sell somebody something somewhere, if you can get to them.
00:14:14.190 –> 00:14:20.970
Steve Werner: But like is it realistic i’m all for stretch goals you should have a goal that stretches you a little bit, but when you say.
00:14:21.000 –> 00:14:36.480
Steve Werner: yeah i’m going to go run a marathon and i’m going to run sub three hours like that’s a professional marathon running start with a bowl that is i’m just going to run the marathon if you’re honest with yourself, could you run a marathon three months from now.
00:14:38.130 –> 00:14:45.600
Steve Werner: Is that something you could realistically do Okay, then let’s set a time average time is four and a half hours let’s just go for.
00:14:45.840 –> 00:14:54.060
Steve Werner: i’m going to come in under five hours, like if you set goals you did the same thing with yourself a lot of people, though, would have hit it really hard and then two weeks in.
00:14:54.930 –> 00:14:59.430
Steve Werner: yeah i’m not doing likes today it’s not getting me anywhere anyway, they tell themselves the story.
00:15:00.840 –> 00:15:02.550
Steve Werner: Which is where hypnosis comes in.
00:15:02.910 –> 00:15:04.650
Steve Werner: So see we’re kind of thing that’s.
00:15:04.710 –> 00:15:14.490
Adrian Moreno: A good thing one more thing that’s important about what you just said, there is like I didn’t set a goal to lose 100 pounds and wasn’t very specific, it was.
00:15:15.180 –> 00:15:23.460
Adrian Moreno: I am just going to be this person, and when you see yourself as an APP like you said, like that image.
00:15:24.120 –> 00:15:36.990
Adrian Moreno: You are naturally going to slow down because somebody who’s healthy doesn’t try to prove it right somebody who’s wealthy doesn’t try to like affirm it to themselves.
00:15:37.410 –> 00:15:43.590
Adrian Moreno: You just naturally start living differently so that’s another very important distinction I think people should understand, as well as just like.
00:15:43.860 –> 00:15:54.600
Adrian Moreno: Well yeah the specific goals that you want, but what kind of person even gets those goals and why don’t you focus on just being that, because then naturally you’ll get that specific one to that makes sense.
00:15:55.050 –> 00:16:02.040
Steve Werner: yeah absolutely um okay so let’s let’s dive into hypnosis and nlp so you.
00:16:02.670 –> 00:16:11.790
Steve Werner: You got really curious because you saw some people do really well with your program and other people kind of fell off, and we see this across everywhere in life right there are people.
00:16:12.540 –> 00:16:23.700
Steve Werner: That are given the tools, but yet can’t get out of their own way can’t get out of bed can’t implement them, there are people who do so one What did you find and where did that lead you let’s let’s start with that.
00:16:24.030 –> 00:16:32.340
Adrian Moreno: yeah so again i’ll just I always was like you know I want to have a program with a 100% success rate, you know I don’t.
00:16:32.790 –> 00:16:41.790
Adrian Moreno: Everybody talks about they have a high success rate, but how can you get everybody through the door to the actual finish line, and so, once I just noticed okay apparently.
00:16:42.300 –> 00:16:45.960
Adrian Moreno: paying money is not enough of a motivator especially like that much.
00:16:46.950 –> 00:16:57.900
Adrian Moreno: What is it, so I my natural inclination was I should I go to school and become like a psychologist and like learn this but I was like where there’s Google so never, never mind that.
00:16:58.290 –> 00:17:09.540
Adrian Moreno: So i’ll just get on Google and I just start diving into everything now you see i’m I was looking at everything very objective i’m like what are the actual like percentages of.
00:17:10.050 –> 00:17:19.080
Adrian Moreno: People who go through a certain modality coaching technique process healing something what’s the percentage that they actually get result so.
00:17:19.830 –> 00:17:31.890
Adrian Moreno: Whenever I wanted to understand human behavior I naturally thought in the realm of therapy, so I started looking at therapy to see it has a success rate of around 33% traditional therapy cpt and things like that.
00:17:32.460 –> 00:17:41.700
Adrian Moreno: I was like that’s not so solid and I left that life coaching which has about 22% and I was, like all right, there has to be something better.
00:17:42.120 –> 00:17:47.700
Adrian Moreno: So I continuously looked and I saw I stumbled upon hypnosis which had a 93% success rate.
00:17:48.690 –> 00:17:57.600
Adrian Moreno: That got me really like I was like whoa I think it’s not 100 i’m like but it’s really close so let’s figure out like what is doing this.
00:17:58.200 –> 00:18:04.890
Adrian Moreno: So whenever I started diving into understanding hypnosis I started naturally understanding human behavior.
00:18:05.760 –> 00:18:17.400
Adrian Moreno: And one of the key things I discovered about human behavior is that two things if you only act, how you feel that’s number one, you will only act.
00:18:18.240 –> 00:18:29.700
Adrian Moreno: In alignment is going to your your actions are going to be a direct reflection of an emotional state, you cannot act out of any emotional state, and this is why people say i’m fine.
00:18:30.510 –> 00:18:39.780
Adrian Moreno: But you can tell they’re not right their emotional state is not going to outweigh I mean they’re not going to be able to do that and second thing is you can’t outwork a belief.
00:18:40.890 –> 00:18:50.160
Adrian Moreno: So I started noticing that every single behavior that human beings are engaging in especially compulsive behaviors.
00:18:51.090 –> 00:19:02.100
Adrian Moreno: are coming from most more than not they’re coming from emotional decisions that were made somewhere between the ages of two and eight.
00:19:02.790 –> 00:19:14.820
Adrian Moreno: We make these very emotional decisions that stick with us for ever until you wake up one day you catch the pattern.
00:19:15.540 –> 00:19:28.290
Adrian Moreno: And you can change it like willpower it’s, in other words, I discovered that willpower and freewill are exactly the weakest tools in the box and.
00:19:29.130 –> 00:19:38.610
Adrian Moreno: The reason I basically a quick expansion on, that is, I used to believe in free will, as in I can think what I want to say what I want to do what I want.
00:19:39.480 –> 00:19:44.760
Adrian Moreno: But we think 60 to 80,000 thoughts a day, and this is one of the things I discovered through hypnosis as well, because when I.
00:19:45.240 –> 00:20:02.250
Adrian Moreno: learned hypnosis I started learning about the mind and why we do what we do and I noticed, we think 60 to 80,000 thoughts a day and you’re only where you’re only aware of about 1200 to 1600 thoughts a day that’s how much you’re aware of, and so I was like.
00:20:03.540 –> 00:20:14.310
Adrian Moreno: So all of these compulsive thoughts if we have these compulsive thoughts how free are we right if we consistently have these compulsive reactions are we really free.
00:20:15.000 –> 00:20:30.060
Adrian Moreno: And that made me realize that free will really just comes down to your freedom to choose yourself image, you can choose, however, you want to see yourself, you have infinite freedom there’s no bound on how you want to see yourself.
00:20:31.650 –> 00:20:41.220
Adrian Moreno: But that’s where your free will also in the moment you choose to see yourself a certain way growing up, and you choose to see yourself as not being enough.
00:20:41.610 –> 00:20:55.260
Adrian Moreno: Right that’s one of the most universal beliefs, we hold that people hold if i’m not enough that’s an image of yourself and not enough image right, so we choose this image, the freedom to choose this image.
00:20:56.850 –> 00:21:13.230
Adrian Moreno: And then every thought habit belief behavior follows in direct alignment with that, so we want to change our results you got to be willing to change our unconscious self image and yeah so does that answer your question as to what I discovered so.
00:21:14.790 –> 00:21:22.890
Steve Werner: yeah go ahead, absolutely so let’s dive into because the first thing like i’m certified in hypnosis as well, I don’t use.
00:21:23.220 –> 00:21:24.870
Adrian Moreno: My God I love that I know.
00:21:26.040 –> 00:21:32.580
Steve Werner: yeah well I, so I did I did Marisa peers program um I don’t know it’s rct it’s a.
00:21:33.120 –> 00:21:36.270
Adrian Moreno: rapid rate, one of the modalities i’ve done in you, yes.
00:21:36.750 –> 00:21:46.260
Steve Werner: Okay, so I don’t use it very much I went through it, because I wanted to learn basically because i’m a lifelong learner and I was, like, I think that I can use that I think it’s beneficial.
00:21:46.650 –> 00:21:53.040
Steve Werner: But to people that are listening to this and they’re like hypnosis like you’re going to make me cluck like a chicken jump around on stage.
00:21:53.310 –> 00:22:09.120
Steve Werner: So talk to me about what, how do you tell people what hypnosis is, and how does that help them specifically either change the emotional decision that was made between two and eight years old or and redefine their self image.
00:22:10.020 –> 00:22:19.440
Adrian Moreno: So one of the things I do want to like to say really quick is, we can definitely pick up patterns, we could definitely pick up patterns after the age of eight it’s 100% possible.
00:22:20.460 –> 00:22:25.380
Adrian Moreno: But jory deity of our actual patterns that are happening In between there they’re happening.
00:22:26.100 –> 00:22:36.120
Adrian Moreno: You know, there are sourced from that age, but anyways so now, aside from that we’re going to answer what hypnosis is I think it’s very important to understand that everything is hypnosis.
00:22:36.600 –> 00:22:47.760
Adrian Moreno: Because hypnosis is nothing but a internal trance right, it is a fully absorbed state and people say it’s a 40 of zora state of attention.
00:22:49.470 –> 00:23:03.330
Adrian Moreno: I wouldn’t say that I would say it’s a 40 absorb state of experience, where you’re fully you’re fully absorbed in a certain experience, to the point where that experience, the only truth for you, so we can put it this way.
00:23:04.890 –> 00:23:18.420
Adrian Moreno: You can never not be in a trance and when I say an internal trance I mean everything is it is internal like my voice right now it’s not happening outside of you it’s happening inside of your mind my.
00:23:18.960 –> 00:23:26.280
Adrian Moreno: you’re out you’re picking up a vibration and you’re interpreting it same thing with my image i’m not out here i’m just happening in your optical load.
00:23:26.790 –> 00:23:41.550
Adrian Moreno: And so, once we understand that literally everything is internal like it right now I mean you were to touch like shake hands, what would happen if you would just feel your sensations in your hand you wouldn’t feel my head, so you start to notice, everything is internal.
00:23:42.210 –> 00:23:46.500
Adrian Moreno: So that’s what I mean by everything is hypnosis because you’re always in a trance.
00:23:46.560 –> 00:23:55.110
Adrian Moreno: In order to live in this human body, which I believe we’re way more than human beings, by the way, I believe there’s something infinite within every one of us.
00:23:56.010 –> 00:24:03.420
Adrian Moreno: That can be a whole nother conversation, but with That being said, knowing that there’s something infinite within all of us.
00:24:04.170 –> 00:24:19.650
Adrian Moreno: We have to kind of like our consciousness has to tracks itself out to live in this reality right so with That being said, what does it actually example of hypnosis to make it clear.
00:24:20.670 –> 00:24:27.750
Adrian Moreno: I mean you’re working out and then the whole world disappears whatever Have you ever worked that and why are you working now or your problems disappear.
00:24:28.140 –> 00:24:39.060
Adrian Moreno: you’re reading a book hours go by, and you lose sense of time all of that is a perfect example of a hit of a hypnotic trance you click on an ad you purchase you buy right there you got hypnotized by that thing.
00:24:39.510 –> 00:24:56.640
Adrian Moreno: So everything is is hypnosis there right, so I there’s no such thing as mind control in hypnosis as well because it’s always your mind and your other always wanting control so any myths around hypnosis in mind control that can be a whole thing in itself but.
00:24:58.230 –> 00:25:01.890
Adrian Moreno: You know okay so i’m sorry, so I wanted to explain what hypnosis was.
00:25:02.310 –> 00:25:04.080
Adrian Moreno: In a real quickly as the scientific.
00:25:04.830 –> 00:25:09.990
Adrian Moreno: easiest way to explain it is alpha alpha brainwaves as well we’re gonna get scientific about it.
00:25:10.560 –> 00:25:19.890
Adrian Moreno: you’re just getting from delta into alpha when you dip into alpha you can make infinite changes your behavior because alpha as an is an unconscious state.
00:25:20.250 –> 00:25:32.190
Adrian Moreno: And all change happens unconsciously you never change behavior consciously you can do it consciously but the actual change happens in an unconscious part of yourself okay.
00:25:32.610 –> 00:25:40.680
Adrian Moreno: So that is like the easiest way to put the scientific backing behind hypnosis is just can you get an alpha brainwave.
00:25:41.220 –> 00:25:52.170
Adrian Moreno: Absolutely it’s easy to do and then from that brainwave if you I mean just like if you have certain processes, you can follow a certain you know process to heal something but.
00:25:52.350 –> 00:25:53.910
Adrian Moreno: Aside from that, so.
00:25:53.970 –> 00:26:16.080
Adrian Moreno: How do we actually change, though, like, how do we use hypnosis to change, so if everything is hypnosis then how the heck do we use it to change the easiest ways to do this is you want to understand why you’re doing what you’re doing so, for example, we can put it this way.
00:26:17.280 –> 00:26:25.050
Adrian Moreno: If somebody is constantly let’s say it’s either super easy example let’s say somebody constantly overeating right.
00:26:25.110 –> 00:26:34.710
Adrian Moreno: Okay they’re constantly overeating and then they want to stop overeating and hypnosis what you’re able to do with you’re able to communicate with your unconscious mind.
00:26:35.790 –> 00:26:36.510
Steve Werner: and
00:26:36.960 –> 00:26:47.880
Adrian Moreno: Which controls basically all of your behavior So if you consistently over eating in hypnosis what my job, is what I do is I help people figure out the belief.
00:26:48.420 –> 00:26:56.640
Adrian Moreno: That is creating that emotional that is creating that pattern right like if somebody’s constantly overeating or their belief behind that.
00:26:57.480 –> 00:27:02.130
Adrian Moreno: yeah now what I do is specifically find where the belief started.
00:27:02.940 –> 00:27:12.060
Adrian Moreno: So if somebody wants to really change their constant behavior what they want to do they want to find out where a certain belief started.
00:27:12.450 –> 00:27:17.100
Adrian Moreno: So, for example, one of my clients, they were consistently over eating.
00:27:17.910 –> 00:27:28.290
Adrian Moreno: And when we got down to it, we because what I do, and as you sure, as you know, with alrighty you’re able to go back to certain experiences certain memories of that trigger certain beliefs.
00:27:28.890 –> 00:27:36.450
Adrian Moreno: And in this case, all of the events well you know I can’t get too personal because some of them are very, very like.
00:27:36.510 –> 00:27:49.080
Adrian Moreno: busa but basically at the end of the day, the event lead lead her this client to believe that they were not enough, and that number two that they have to be big to be safe.
00:27:49.770 –> 00:28:02.640
Adrian Moreno: right they grew up and because they’re so small, they got so handled and her mind, she was like I gotta be big if i’m big I can control myself if i’m big I can help people.
00:28:03.570 –> 00:28:12.210
Adrian Moreno: We make decisions like that, like four or five years old, when a wonder at 3040 years old, you have you constantly feel the need to eat.
00:28:12.660 –> 00:28:13.320
Steve Werner: Because you live.
00:28:14.760 –> 00:28:18.300
Steve Werner: yeah you lived out the beliefs and it became a habituated pattern.
00:28:18.840 –> 00:28:21.750
Adrian Moreno: That just change exactly and so it’s just like.
00:28:21.960 –> 00:28:31.980
Adrian Moreno: How can you make what you want, feel safe that’s all that it comes down to hypnosis is a beautiful way to meet unmet needs from your childhood.
00:28:32.520 –> 00:28:44.100
Adrian Moreno: Because self sabotaging behaviors are typically stemming from unmet needs that you had a child so with the power of hypnosis I believe that anybody can go relive their childhood it’s not too late.
00:28:44.610 –> 00:28:51.720
Adrian Moreno: And so, one of the easiest ways to do the inner child work is to hypnosis and then we can dive more into inner child work itself but.
00:28:53.760 –> 00:29:00.360
Adrian Moreno: i’m sorry I haven’t been going on, so what was the i’m i’m like I kind of got sidetracked in the original question.
00:29:00.900 –> 00:29:09.090
Steve Werner: No, no you’re great man i’m the I mean the question was how does hypnosis help reprogram your self image.
00:29:10.230 –> 00:29:11.040
Adrian Moreno: Exactly.
00:29:11.340 –> 00:29:13.290
Steve Werner: yeah I think that there’s exactly what I said.
00:29:13.860 –> 00:29:24.900
Steve Werner: there’s a lot in there, I mean the so i’ll point to two or three things i’m The first one is we all, I have not met one person who, if they are honest.
00:29:26.010 –> 00:29:39.390
Steve Werner: says, I have a lot of moments, where I say I am not enough, I have interviewed people who 400 $500 million, they still have a little bit of that belief somewhere in their life.
00:29:39.990 –> 00:29:48.210
Steve Werner: It is definitely more common in people that don’t have that much money I think most people who have made millions and millions have conquered some of that.
00:29:50.160 –> 00:29:50.520
Steve Werner: But.
00:29:51.870 –> 00:30:06.150
Steve Werner: The real thing is, why do you believe that what were in your childhood or younger age usually did that trigger somewhere, there is something that caused you to believe that and then to your point about being safe, we are going to act.
00:30:07.320 –> 00:30:11.190
Steve Werner: In a way, that feels congruent with their self image and makes us feel safe.
00:30:11.730 –> 00:30:12.150
Adrian Moreno: mm hmm.
00:30:12.210 –> 00:30:13.170
Steve Werner: And one of the largest.
00:30:15.630 –> 00:30:29.880
Steve Werner: I was just gonna say, one of the biggest things that i’ve seen in people who struggle, a lot with money is they have a belief somewhere, maybe it’s not that money was bad, but that if you have a lot of money people won’t like you you’ll lose friends.
00:30:30.030 –> 00:30:31.920
Steve Werner: People take advantage of you.
00:30:32.220 –> 00:30:42.240
Steve Werner: People judge you one of our biggest fear in life is being judged being judged negatively, and a lot of people have if I make a lot of money, I will be judged negatively.
00:30:43.170 –> 00:30:51.390
Steve Werner: And when that is true, it is really hard to make a lot of money because you’ll just want to give it away because you don’t ever want to feel like you’re being judged so.
00:30:51.450 –> 00:30:52.140
Adrian Moreno: That faith.
00:30:52.830 –> 00:31:05.250
Steve Werner: Right Adrian we could probably talk a long, long time about this, but the thing that I want to bring up is if people want your help, because I don’t I don’t do hypnosis I studied it because I was interested in it.
00:31:06.420 –> 00:31:10.860
Steve Werner: You actually practice it where can people find you where can people go to get in touch with you.
00:31:11.460 –> 00:31:13.020
Adrian Moreno: yeah so the easiest way to actually.
00:31:14.250 –> 00:31:17.190
Adrian Moreno: come into my world is to experience, I believe that.
00:31:18.270 –> 00:31:25.170
Adrian Moreno: At the end of the day, don’t believe anything i’m saying just experience it for yourself, so if you go to rewire my thoughts.com.
00:31:25.620 –> 00:31:34.050
Adrian Moreno: slash transform rewire my thoughts comm slash transform you will be able to get into my world is going to take you to a.
00:31:34.440 –> 00:31:45.300
Adrian Moreno: Basically, a video where you actually get to go through the hypnosis process, I take my clients through, but also when you download the video it’s going to send you my link to my Facebook group to my Facebook instagram.
00:31:45.660 –> 00:31:53.970
Adrian Moreno: All of my social medias but the easiest way to just get into my water get through there and then i’ll like release everything else in the email after that.
00:31:54.810 –> 00:31:55.260
Steve Werner: awesome.
00:31:55.560 –> 00:31:57.540
Steve Werner: So we will tag that.
00:31:57.960 –> 00:32:05.190
Steve Werner: That will all be in the show notes so look in the show notes go check Adrian out Adrian I want to wrap up the show.
00:32:06.390 –> 00:32:20.130
Steve Werner: I want to ask what is one thing that you would like to leave the listeners with as they go through their day, whether this is something that is a falsity that you want to set straight, whether this is one of your favorite quotes.
00:32:21.360 –> 00:32:29.430
Steve Werner: Whatever it is what is one thing that you would leave listeners with that they can take away from this and rapidly change their life with.
00:32:29.790 –> 00:32:35.490
Adrian Moreno: Well, I can tell that there’s a lot of entrepreneurs in high performers are listening to this podcast right.
00:32:35.820 –> 00:32:44.790
Adrian Moreno: So with That being said, I think it’s really important that we debunk different that we just like let go of this entire idea that action alleviate anxiety.
00:32:45.270 –> 00:32:53.610
Adrian Moreno: And when you feeling anxious because you’re thinking too much so just act as party, one of the most dangerous things for a human being to adopt.
00:32:54.180 –> 00:33:04.380
Adrian Moreno: Because they are going to just ravaged their immune system over time if they live like that I think what the most important thing that an entrepreneur can do.
00:33:05.370 –> 00:33:22.620
Adrian Moreno: Is create the internal space that they need to perform well and in order to do that, you have to slow down you gotta address which you’re actually feeling, and so what i’m going to really like.
00:33:23.970 –> 00:33:32.070
Adrian Moreno: It finish this thing off with if I strongly encourage you to pay attention to the parts of yourself that you’ve been rejecting or making wrong.
00:33:32.640 –> 00:33:42.780
Adrian Moreno: Right like you feel wrong about fitting and like data you just reject fitting like that, whatever that is but embracing those parts of yourself and actually like.
00:33:43.950 –> 00:33:51.420
Adrian Moreno: Allowing yourself to feel that right, if you feel like you’re not good enough if you consciously say I am good enough, but you don’t feel like you’re good enough.
00:33:51.930 –> 00:33:59.160
Adrian Moreno: pay attention to that I pay attention to that fitting fitting they’re not logical so don’t logic be try to think you’re something that you’re not.
00:33:59.880 –> 00:34:01.890
Adrian Moreno: Right attention to your actual feeling.
00:34:02.610 –> 00:34:02.970
00:34:05.160 –> 00:34:18.900
Adrian Moreno: Go revisit that that inner child of yourself and really just make sure your inner child feel safe, because the easiest thing you can do for yourself and for everybody that you help.
00:34:19.380 –> 00:34:28.620
Adrian Moreno: is to heal the parts of yourself that think they’re broken, and the only way to do that it’s actually slow down and pay attention to them and also you’re not broken.
00:34:29.460 –> 00:34:38.040
Adrian Moreno: keep in mind what I just said, you know the parts of yourself that think they’re broken you’re not broken just a matter of making sure all of you actually knows that.
00:34:39.450 –> 00:34:45.870
Steve Werner: I think that is very, very true Adrian I just want to say thank you so much for coming on and sharing.
