Do you believe in time travel?I do!Not in a 'Back to the Future' sense of the word (although wouldn't that be cool), but I do believe in our ability to go back into our minds and memories and relive experiences from the past. Some of you will know that, when I'm not running this website and promoting my book, I work as a hypnotherapist. One of the techniques I trained in is called Time Lin...

I now have over 1000 'Likes' for my Facebook Fan Page - Yay! Cue fist pump, celebrations and fireworks! While I'm being slightly sarcastic in my jubilation, I should pause for a moment to reflect on this minor achievement. I remember when I started; getting 100 Likes seemed an impossibly huge number. Now (after a considerable amount of time), the page seems to be growing without putti...

Last weekend, I went to the Muhammad Ali exhibition at the O2 in London.  I left the venue buzzing. Not only was I dazzled by Ali's boxing prowess and career, I was awed by the strength he showed in standing up for what he believed in and touched by his humanity. But I also left the venue in a deep state of thought. Many of Ali's quotes were plastered around the walls and most of them referen...

Today, I'm writing about giving up. Ostensibly, in relation to your dreams, but what I'm about to say is just as relevant to giving up on a quest to lose weight, a relationship or even a contest, as it is to a cherished life-long goal.  Before we start, though, let me first outline my credentials. While I don't have a track record of quitting on the projects I undertake, due to the difficultie...

I did it!!!! That picture you see is me celebrating achieving my New Year's resolution for 2015.

You've been lied to your entire life. It's likely that everything you've been told by your parents, teachers, colleagues and friends about how the world works, and your role within it, is inaccurate hearsay designed to protect you from dangers that don't exist; or in the case of the government, media and religion, control you in order to support the agenda of a tiny global elite.  The whol...

Wake up 5am. (What!?!?) Write down your goals for the day, meditate, repeat affirmations, do a cold plunge or jump in your cryotherapy unit, then exercise for 45 minutes to an hour. Finally, do some journaling or reading. (I'm sorry, has this morning routine just turned into exactly that - an entire morning). Where do these personal development guru's get time to do all of this?

Walking your own path can be hard. It can seem that you're all alone, taking on a world that doesn't give a sh#t about you or have room for your unique talents and personality. Sometimes you may wonder if you'll ever find a place to call your own or whether, ultimately, you'll just have to accept The System's path and to paraphrase Wayne Dyer, 'let the music die still in you.'  I don't want th...

Have you ever been at work, school or a social gathering and not felt part of what's going on? Have you ever switched on TV and sat astounded at the world you see in front of you? Do you ever feel that other people just don't give a sh#t and generally won't make an effort with you?  Do you find yourself gravitating towards, or pretty much forced into, spending a lot of time alone?  If any o...
