This is the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast, session number 205, Victoria Marie Gallagher on Practical Law of Attraction. Welcome to the Work Smart Hypnosis Podcast with Jason Lynette, your professional resource for hypnosis training and outstanding business success. Here’s your host, Jason Lynette. Welcome back to the program.
It’s Jason Lynette here, and I’ve been meaning. To Murray Gallagher on the program for quite some time now, and actually had a great appearance over on her hip talk program, which you can check out. We’re gonna link to that in the show notes [email protected], and especially getting into this topic which is widely debated, uh, praised and criticized at the same time.
The whole concept of law of attraction. And then, uh, her sort of spit on this is putting the word practical at the beginning of it, which of course also is the name of her book, which you can check out on Amazon. And we get onto that topic in terms of what is often misunderstood about this idea. What is it that perhaps we’re already talking about that fits into similar themes, and how can we put that action into attraction and think about it in such a way that it actually.
Becomes practical. So it’s interesting that as soon as uh, these themes pop up online, there’s a lot of criticism that’s often there. And it’s from my perspective, that if we look at something and just immediately go directly to the negative and say, That doesn’t work, that’s not a thing. We kind of limit ourselves.
We shut ourselves off as opposed to asking the. . Well, what can I do with that? How can I spend that idea to make that work better? How can I spend that idea to make that work better for me? Uh, I share, There’s a theme that I’ve not really talked much about. I’ve probably brought it up a few times in conversation here on the podcast.
And it’s where I’m gonna use a word that a lot of people would use this word in a bit of a negative light. And if you go back to episode number 200 with Adam Eon, we kind of dip our toes into the topics of placebo. And the concept that I’d kind of introduce though is that what if we go placebo on techniques that actually.
So here’s an example of this, uh, and actually going back to a much earlier episode with Scott Giles. I’ve heard Scott Giles years ago talk about the idea that he works a lot with people going through cancer treatments and at times he’s using hypnotic suggestion to help the people get a stronger result from the medications that they’re taking.
Let’s look at that. Here’s the thing that is absolutely working for the person, the medication, the treatments they’re going through for the cancer, and he’s using hypnotic suggestion to heighten the awareness of the results that they’re getting. And thanks to Scott in some way for this sort of inspirational way of looking at something.
What if we take techniques that we already know are effective, which we can fold into? So many other things, whether it’s mindfulness based meditation, to look at the work that Richard non guard has put out in recent. To take, uh, the concepts of visualization featuring, uh, you know, future guests that I need to have on the program and several others I’ve heard talk about those topics.
Anyone who’s talked about athletics on this program, we know these things are effective. These things have stood the test of evolutionary science, and we’re still talking about them as concepts, but what if we put that appropriate spin on top of it to sell its ethic? The same way that back to I believe episode number two of this podcast series with Michael Elner.
The way that Michael would ask a client, Hey, today we can do option one or option number two. Which one of those do you think would be the most effective for you today? And by getting that answer, they are delivering a hypnotic contract. And by doing so, they are self-validating in advance. Hey, this thing is going to work for me.
So perhaps to look at this whole law of attraction concept of, again, practical putting action to the attraction of what are the things that you’re doing, what are the things that you’re putting out there? And in many ways, yes, I could sit here and say I’ve manifested, uh, multiple six figure hypnosis businesses, and yet chronically all of it in my Work Smart Business book here is the massive action that I did to make that stuff happen.
So rather than look at a title and just simply say, That’s not a thing. Instead to go, What are those ways that I can spend this idea for me? What are those ways that I can use this as a source of inspiration? And a huge thank you to Victoria for coming on this program and sharing some of those thoughts and really helping to answer some of those questions.
And in terms of business success, I’d encourage you to head over to hyp. Business systems.com. This is where in a step by step, easy to digest library, I’ve put together the roadmap as to how I’ve built multiple six figure hypnosis businesses. Everything from done for you marketing campaigns to step by step tutorials of search engine optimization, how to work with social media in such a way that you actually get found how to launch your own media engine to drive and attract people to your business.
This is all chronicled inside of hyp. Business systems.com and head over there right now because you could check out. There’s actually an option now for an all access pass. Check that [email protected]. And with that, let’s head directly into this episode. Be sure to check out the show [email protected] for the links to Victoria’s book, her podcast, and various other resources.
Here we go. This is episode number 205 Victoria Marie Gall. On practical law of attraction.
You know, I was in a time in my life where, um, a lot of things were, I, you know, I lost my passion for my business. I was a stock broker at the time, and I. Actually entered the world of hypnosis through the world of personal growth. I was taking a lot of personal development seminars, like si, seminars, Landmark Forum, those kinds of things.
And I discovered during that time I just really loved a lot of the processes that they were doing to help us to get in touch with ourselves. The the closed eye techniques, the visualizations, the meditations, and I loved that and I would. I would be out asking my friends, Come take this seminar. It’s the greatest thing in the world.
You’re just gonna make all these breakthroughs. And people wouldn’t, wouldn’t go. And so I’m like, well, if they’re not gonna come to the seminar, then I’m gonna bring the seminar to them. . Mm-hmm. . And so I got this idea, this was over 20 years ago. I got this idea that I wanted to make meditation recordings that people could download off of a website that I would create and people would download and listen to these meditations in the comfort of their own home.
And, you know, people thought I was crazy and they thought, You, you, there’s no way you can make enough money. Uh, you know, selling, uh, hypnosis recording or actually, it wasn’t even hypnosis at the time, it was just meditation. And so what caused me to become a hypnotist was I was looking for a way to validate the script writing that I was doing.
And I was writing these scripts and I was like, Well, are these any good? Like, how do I know that I’m. Gonna be effective. How do I know that these are actually gonna make the changes that I want people to make? And I start doing this long study online of how to write a meditation that’s effective. And you know, that doesn’t hurt anybody.
And you know, I just wanted to make sure that I was legit and I knew what I was doing. And somehow or another, I came across a hypnotherapy certification course that was in Las Vegas where I was living at the time. And was opening, um, their first class, uh, the hypnosis class was starting in the next two weeks.
And I’m like, Oh my goodness, this is exactly what I wanna do. And I even took it to the next level. You know, I wasn’t gonna become a hypnotherapist. Like, I was literally just getting the certification just so I could write the scripts and sell the recordings and know that I was legit. Right. Yeah. But I, you know, but I thought.
Well, what the heck? You know, this would be fun. Um, you know, I’m already doing this as a stock broker. People come in and tell me about their love life and their, you know, they, they’d rather talk about anything else than how much money they have . So I just thought, well, why not? You know, just become a hypnotherapist and start seeing, uh, clients and, you know, really, really.
Get to a point where I understood how people’s minds really work. And so I opened up my office and I started, uh, you know, seeing clients and one thing just kind of led to another and, uh, I thought I was gonna have time to build up my hypnotherapy practice before, um, you know, before having to quit my, my day job, so to speak.
And, um, my, my branch manager at the time found out what I was doing and of course, you know, I was up and up, I was getting a business license and that’s how he found out because they sent every single person in the world a background check form and, uh, Brings me into his office one day. He is like, What is this?
Are you starting a business? And I’m like, Uh, yep, . And he is like, This is a conflict of interest. And uh, you need to make a decision. You either have to, uh, close your office or close your new business or. , you gotta, you know, um, make a, make decision. And he gave me 30 days. And I wasn’t making any money as a hypnotist yet.
I was spending money. I had Yellow pages ads, , I had office rent, I had, you know, all these additional expenses, which I could afford as a stock broker, but certainly not yet in my hypnotherapy practice. And I said, Well, we’re gonna see how this, um, this whole. If you think it , believe it, you can do it. We’re gonna put it to the test.
And, uh, you know, I made the decision and never looked back and, uh, you know, went through probably like the first year and a half, um, difficult times cuz uh, the, the truth of matter is I was just a baby in learning this whole manifestation thing and I thought I knew. . And the thing is, is that this is the stage where most people give up on learning how to manifest their dreams.
Most people at that point where I was struggling would say, You know what? This stuff doesn’t work. I tried and it really just doesn’t work. But I knew enough to know, you know, cuz I. Now become a hypnotherapist. And I understood a little bit more about how the subconscious mind works now, and I got it that, you know, I just didn’t have the belief in myself firmly planted where it needed to be at the subconscious level.
And so I worked on my beliefs and continued meditating and hypnotizing myself, and eventually I had that breakthrough. I love that, especially the moment of having to make that decision and, uh, let, let’s kind of explore that moment. What was that thought process of I can keep doing what’s easy perhaps and is guaranteed paycheck and I already know how to do it and this is all taken care of.
Or I can just jump ship and do something that’s really, in some way you had been doing, but now doing on purpose as. Yeah, well, you know, and even then I kind of thought I could finagle the system a little bit. So my mind was working out a another safety net for myself. So what I did is I partnered up with another stock broker in, uh, that was just a little younger in the business than me, and I said, Hey, you know, just so you know, I’m leaving in.
30 days and I wanna give you all my clients and let’s just split it 50%, you know, whatever commissions you make, just, you know, for the next year, give me 50% so that I can break free and do this. And so we went out and I spent the whole next month talk, bringing her to meet all of. Top clients, like the top 20 clients in my book, and we had them even sign an agreement.
Um, because you know, when you leave, When you leave the business, usually what they do is just split up your book and break it up and the client doesn’t have any choice who they’re gonna work with. And a lot of times they’ll actually leave and go to another firm because, um, you know, they don’t wanna work with the new broker and they’ve got a relationship with another.
Brokerage firm. Usually they don’t just have one relationship. So anyway, long story short, that 30 day came, went to the branch manager. I’m like, Okay, well I’ve made a decision. I’m gonna leave, but here Shirley, Shirley’s gonna take over my book. Nice . He says, Nope, that’s not gonna happen. And so I was like, Oh, okay.
I just spent the last 30 days. Mm-hmm. . Uh, going in the complete wrong direction, I could have been building my hypnotherapy business, , and instead I was trying to figure out a way to, you know, kind of keep sustain the income that I already had. That seemed like the best way to do it. So, You know, and, and not only that, I had to leave, uh, you know, we had this investment plan that, um, you know, you, that I, I was putting 25% of my income into every month.
And this, um, it doesn’t vest for two years. So every month that you put in, The, the last two years that you put in, you don’t get until, you know, two years later. And so I had to like, leave all that money on the table and, but it was just like this, this unreasonable belief that I had in following the dream.
And that is one of the reasons why I do what I do now. Mm-hmm. , um, is just because I. I, you know, even though like there’s been those struggles, it’s just been so worth it, you know, to have that liberty to have built something that I’m proud of, that, um, you know, I can travel and go where I want, do what I want.
Nobody tells me when I can have lunch or go to the bathroom, , you know? And, and I just, I have this thing that I’m proud of, and. I feel like if most people were true to themselves and really followed, what’s the, in their heart, the desire that they have in their heart, Most people would choose to do something different than the, the safe road, the, the road to comfort, um, that they’re, that they’re in right now.
So I, I just really want to help people to break free of those constraints and the things that. You know, um, Or selling themselves short on. Yeah. And it’s where, you know, sharing that, that origin story at times, it’s where there’s a lot of people out there who are just kind of at that border or maybe even they’ve been learning it for quite some time.
And it’s that experience now to be able to hear, here’s one method of putting it into use. One of, one of my favorite things though is that we always, of course, take something from what our experiences were before. And that begins to inform what we do now, and you kind of hinted at this, that in that role of stock broker, you were listening to the entire system of that person.
It wasn’t just their finances and their investments, it was that fact that you were really engaging with them in such a way that now you kind of had that whole story and this is how you were better able to help them in terms of creating that outcome. Exactly. And you know, there’s so many things that, uh, really play into being able to, uh, you know, a lot of, a lot of, um, a lot of hypnotherapist, you know, they have a hard time asking their clients to spend a lot of money, you know, to, to do the full system that they need.
To do with them, you know, whether it’s like their 12 system, their, their, their 12 system, blah, their 12 session system that they really, really need to work through for their weight loss or whatever it is. And I, because I dealt with people that had. Millions of dollars. I never had that, uh, that problem asking people to invest in themselves because I knew that, you know, they were well of, of course, I had the luxury of working in the brokerage business during, um, you know, 1993 to 1998, where, where.
Market basically tripled . Um, so I could do no wrong. So it’s when you asking people, it’s when you left that it all fell apart, is what I’m hearing it. You know what, it fell apart right after I left. And then of course now, you know things 20 years later and are in a much, much bigger place. But yeah, it, it did, it was kind of a funny thing because it seemed like, you know, Yeah, right after I left, it’s like Victoria left and all of our stocks are falling apart.
What happened ? Um, so yeah, I left during, uh, you know, kind of the height in that moment, you know, stock market. always goes up. Mm-hmm. , Um, you just have these, uh, you know, events. You just, you just have these events and you have to, um, you know, get through those events. But ultimately it’s designed to go up because every company is.
Ultimately, you know, going to become more and more profitable, you know, year after year. So, uh, that’s, there’s, there’s a question to kind of go back here, that at one point you were looking at doing meditation programs mm-hmm. , and then from there, seeking out the hypnosis. Let’s phrase it this way, If the ma, this makes sense in terms of legitimizing it and actually knowing that what you’re doing is gonna serve a specific outcome.
What would you say was different from moving from the mindset of meditation program to now hypnosis program? I think just the main thing was that at the time I was, um, I had the credentials of a hypnotherapist, so I figured that hypnosis is more designed to, uh, you know, to achieve a very specific outcome, whereas meditation just doesn’t really sound as powerful.
Seems like something, you know, that was just the thought process at the time that, you know, it was more designed to like, help people, you know, with these, um, you know, these major breakthroughs that they wanted, uh, to make in their life rather than, you know, this sort of meditation that just seems like, well, you know, we’re gonna, we’re gonna just relax and, and enjoy a, a, a guided moment here.
And, and, um, You know, comfort of my own mind and you know, that kind of thing. It just didn’t seem. I don’t know. Um, it seemed like the possibilities were better, you know, with, with just using the credentials that I had of being a hypnotherapist. So, fair to paraphrase that, that you saw the hypnosis as being more outcome oriented.
That’s exactly right. Sometimes , sometimes the words escaped, escaped me , but yes, that’s exactly right. Yeah. So going through that, that training then, and eventually launching the business, how much of what you were doing then was focused on, let’s say, on live one to one services versus sticking within that online media you were thinking of originally?
So, at the time, and again, you know, my, my focus in the back of my mind was, Always on, uh, you know, building the website and creating the, uh, the hypnotic, um, recordings. Um, so I spent about half of my time, you know, usually in the evening I’d be writing scripts and making the recordings. And during the day I would see, you know, maybe.
At the height of it, probably up to four clients, and I knew myself, um, that was about the max for me. Mm-hmm. , like as far as, I mean, I could see more, but I didn’t have the energy, um, based on the. Thing that I, you know, was really, really working on, you know, which was building my, um, hypnotic recording Empire
Yes. Um, so, you know, at the, at the height of it, um, I saw about up to maybe 20 clients a week, and they came to me. It was really not a difficult thing for me to, uh, you know, to get, uh, you know, like a part-time, um, You know, uh, crew of people that were coming, uh, to see me on a weekly basis. And I did that for about five years.
And then my husband and I, um, decided to move from, I was in Las Vegas at the time, we decided to move to the East Coast, and that’s when I had another decision to make. Um, do I open up another? In, you know, in another state and, and go through all that again. And by that time, my internet business was successful.
So I just figured, well, I think this is where we say goodbye to doing, um, you know, live in person sessions. Now, do I do sessions? I do occasionally do, uh, you know, like Skype sessions and, you know, Zoom sessions, um, you know, with people from time to time, but I only do it. Very, very specific niche. I only deal with people who are looking for, uh, some sort of a breakthrough in, uh, their success mindset.
You know, when it comes to entrepreneurial things, things that, like, this is what I am doing, you know, myself, so I know the language, I know the vocabulary. I don’t, uh, typically like to, you know, hyp. People for weight or smoking or health or, or get distracted with any other topics, you know? So I only deal with Victoria’s, you know, people who are doing what I do.
You know, what’s beautiful about that is the fact that we get to choose those things that we work with. That it doesn’t have to be everyone who calls in. Of course, for that person who’s brand new, they may be kind of chopping at the bit to get out there and find that experience. And so there is something to be, uh, mentioned around sometimes you have the idea of what you wanna work with quite a bit, and then you start doing it.
Then you realize, I don’t wanna do this anymore. . Exactly. Oh yeah. I, I, I originally was like, Oh, I wanna work with kids. I really enjoy helping kids and. I enjoyed that. I did not enjoy dealing with their parents. So , the schedule nowadays, you know, limits that, uh, of kind of splitting the time. Similar online, splitting the time live and in person.
But, you know, we can, we can choose those things that we work best with. And I’d imagine for someone who’s reaching out to you for those things, you have programs for those now instead, right? I do. And yeah, and that’s really where my focus is, is you know, like, look, 100% will say that if you can afford it, then you know, and you have some, uh, things that you’re really wanting to break through in your life.
The number one thing is go to see a hypnotherapist that’s certified and um, you know, can help you one on one. I mean, that’s the crumb de la crumb, but not everybody. Either can afford that or maybe they don’t have the time for that. Or, um, you know, maybe they’re like Victoria, which is like a do it yourself or type of person.
And that is, I always found that I like helping and guiding, not even necessarily helping, but guiding the self help. That’s my, you know, that’s my person. Um, I’ve always been into self-help. I’ve always wanted that guidance. I’ve always read a lot of, like, I don’t think I’ve ever read, uh, read a fiction book in my life.
you know, I don’t like to read books that just waste my time. You know, I kind of hit the same revelation a couple of, uh, months ago in the writing of mine going, you know, I’m looking at all these other categories and I just, I haven’t read one of these in, you know, quite a bit. Yeah, I, I saw the, saw the movie based on.
But . But again, give me, give me something I can put into action. Give me something, I can actually turn into something. Yes, I like books that you can do. . I don’t wanna do something with this book. So I’ve, so I’ve been the, so I’ve always, that’s, that’s. Obviously what I’ve taken after and where I’ve gotten most of my information is, you know, through, uh, you know, through self-help and through, um, you know, things that guide you to explore, uh, yourself and become more aware and break through your limiting beliefs.
And, and that’s what, um, so I like to just empower people more, you know, who are looking to empower themselves. So from your perspective, and uh, I’d give a sort of preamble to this, that I think there’s too many people out there who are looking at online programs or sort of the do it yourself model and would often say, even for training, they’d go, That doesn’t work as well.
Mm-hmm. . And instead, I think it’s more empowering to step off to the side and ask, how do I make. This work even better because there’s things that a program, a product can do differently that a live service can’t. So on the training side, here’s one of my training programs that there’s like six demos of the same technique.
This way you can see it on your own time, modified for different people, which you would hate me if you were in a classroom and I did the same demo seven times. But now in an online platform, it makes sense to go back and revisit it, you know, on your own time or hell watch ’em all in one sitting. What, what’s kind of your perspective in terms of how do we punch up those, those digital programs to, to improve them?
You know, I think the thing is, is that we need to preface that with the, that. You’re gonna get the most value out of this by approaching it with an attitude that you know, that if it’s possible for one person to get change out of this, then it’s possible for you. I mean, you can, you know, very nice, and, and I’m sure that you’ve ex.
Experiences even, you know, where people, you know, I mean, I’m, I’m sure you’ve had one or two failures, you know, with people in a live hypnosis setting where people say, Yeah, that didn’t work. And, you know, and, and if. You know, if, if a person is going to get success, they have to be of a success mindset. They have to want it to happen.
They have to have that, that desire, they have to believe that they can change and they have to have the motivation that they can change. So I like to just build it up. With them right up front in the intro that, um, also lets them know that like, I don’t have a magic wand. I’m not going to sprinkle magic fairy dust over you,
You are the one that is doing the work. Whether you’re doing it with somebody live and in person, or you’re doing it listening to this recording, it’s your mind, It’s your thought process. It’s your saying. To yourself. It’s your saying, I’m gonna take this, I’m gonna make this work. I mean, you can. You can take any tool and there’s multiple ways of looking at that tool or working with that tool, and you can work with that tool in a way that is ineffective , and you can work with that tool in a way that brings about what it is that you want.
I keep hitting my microphone. I talk with my hands, . Um, you have to work with the tools and you have to want, and have that desire to change and that that can only come from within you. So I know you talk quite a bit about law of attraction and just for those that kind of know it just by the title or some of the, uh, you know, sort of the characterizations of it.
How, how is it that you define. So I really use the dictionary definition of law of attraction, which is to cause something to come into place for you. Um, you know, it’s basically you’re, you are making something happen. Um, a lot of people, I think they hear this word attract, right? And they. That, that means that you’re going to just, something is magically going to appear in place without you having caused that to happen.
So, um, you know, for example, we have websites, right? And what do we, what do we do? We attract visitors, , to our websites. Um, now does that mean that we just put a website up and we say, Hmm. I’m gonna think really hard about people coming and visiting my website. No . We are going to cause people to visit our website.
We’re gonna cr um, make the website attractive. We’re gonna, uh, we’re going to lure people. We’re going to entice people. We’re going to make it mesmerizing. We’re going. Tempt them in some way to come and check out our website. And so that is what attracting is. It’s about making yourself or whatever it is, you know, that you, um, you know, it’s making yourself so irres.
That the thing that you want will be attracted to you, whether it’s attracting a job, whether it’s attracting a mate, whether it’s attracting new customers into your business. And so this law of attraction is really about applying these, uh, principles, I like to call them in my book conditions for manifesting.
And it’s, you know, I’m kind of exposing a little bit more of the truth about the work that you need to do as a person to make Law of Attraction actually work for you. Because here’s the thing, a lot of people got their initial understanding and exposure to Law of Attraction through the hit movie The Secret, which most people have heard of by now, and.
The way that that movie portrays a lot of attraction is wonderful. First of all, I always, I love that movie. I, I watch it cuz it’s very inspirational and um, but it has poles in it. Mm-hmm. . Um, because the way that, you know, they have to. Work within the confines of two hours to explain this kind of complex topic.
Yeah. I share my, my moment was the person talking about, Oh, I use this everywhere. When I pull into a parking lot, I use the secret to find a parking space. And sure enough, one always opens up and I did find myself yelling at the television. That’s how parking lots. Right. You know, But it’s like, like the vision I always, uh, have when I’m think when I’m having this conversation is the woman who’s in the, looking at the, uh, the beautiful, you know, probably, uh, six figure necklace.
Um, and at the jewelry store, and, and she’s, she’s like, focusing on this necklace, and the next thing you know, the next day somebody’s putting it around her neck and it’s like, whoa. There’s more steps there. , , you know, or the, or the kid who’s looking at the bicycle and the next. Thing, you know, you know, the bicycle shows up on his, you know, uh, you know, on his front porch and, you know, these kinds of, um, ideas, they give people a lot of false hope mm-hmm.
that you can just wish, uh, out there to the genie and, and attract your desires. And it doesn’t, there are steps in between and, you know, and. People have these, uh, these very flippant desires, you know, that come and go and they’re not really committed to these desires. They’re just like wishing that something is going to happen, but they’re not actually committed.
And I really believe that attracting something into your life, um, you know, attracting something deliberately. I mean, we attract things all the time. We’re always like, if you. Kind of a nasty mood one day, you know, probably gonna attract a little bit of a, of a bad day because, you know, that’s sort of how the reticular activating system works.
It’s gonna filter out things that are in a line, you know, that are not in alignment with. What you are focused on, what you’re believing. And same thing with your subconscious mind. I mean, and, and that’s the other part of this missing piece for so many people. And being a hypnotherapist, um, you know, nothing is gonna happen.
Absolutely nothing is gonna happen until you get your desire lined up with the beliefs in your subconscious mind. You gotta get the beliefs in your subconscious mind aligned with your desire, what it is that you want, um, and, and. People that just kind of spend 30 days with like, Okay, I’m gonna manifest a million dollars
Um, well, have you ever manifested $20? ? , We gotta start there. We gotta get a little bit into the, um, you know, we gotta get a little bit of confidence going with the fact that you can manifest what you desire to create. And so I wrote this book called Practical Law of Attraction Cuz, and I and I, that was is really the key word in this whole thing is it’s the practical things that you can do to make this law of attraction actually work to your benefit.
What I, what I love inside of that is that starting from a place where somebody has, let’s call it out, a misconception of the process, a idea that’s not quite exactly what it is, which really is that foot in the door to open up a dialogue and explain it in a much more direct way and explain, here’s how in some way you’re already doing this and here’s how you can do it better.
Which that right there is the exact same conversation we would use as hypnotist. It really is, you know, I mean, there’s a lot of misconceptions as you’re well aware of about what hypnosis is, and the people that don’t believe in hypnosis, they don’t believe in hypnosis because they don’t really understand what it is and how it works.
And I say the exact same thing to people who don’t believe in the law of attraction. You do come up with, I do come up with many people who say, Oh, that’s just, you know, people. Like angry about the law of attraction and it’s like, look, I get it. You know? It’s just because it hasn’t been explained to you how to actually use it.
The, you know, the right way. And you know, it’s, um, it’s not magic. Manifesting is not magic. Are there magical moments that do arise when you know there’s this. One of my favorite quotes and, um, I actually just pulled, pulled my book up here. Um, okay, so here’s to me like, this is like the essence of law of attraction until one is committed, there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always ineffectiveness.
Concerning all acts of initiative and creation. There is one elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid plans that the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves to, and you know, and that’s where when I, you know, you hear that Providence moves to, and there’s like a whole other extra paragraph to that, but.
You know, when, um, you know, you’ve had these, these kind of coincidences and synchronicities and, and things like that happen, um, you know, Is like the, the whipped cream on, you know, the, the everything else that you’ve already done to put everything in into place. You know, there, there are those little magical instances that that can arise when you have like, Definitely committed yourself to do everything in your power that you need, uh, to do.
But the thing is, is most people are not committed. They’re not committed like a prisoner is committed to get outta prison. . Well, you mentioned things to do. You mentioned actions for commitment. What are some of those examples of things to actually activate these and turn them into so, So the first, uh, thing, and I, when I say first, I don’t mean an a linear mm-hmm.
process. I just mean, you know, one of the most important things is to get in touch with what it is that you specifically want and focus on that one thing because, you know, so many times people, uh, they, you know, they’re focused on, I wanna relationship, I wanna lose weight, I wanna attract money, I want a new business.
Focused on their, their, their focus is divided into too many different things, and they’re not committed to focusing on just one very specific thing. So that’s the first thing is to really, um, define for yourself what is it that you are committed to be really specific about. That you would like to manifest.
So that’s one thing. And the other thing is being committed to giving up a certain way of thinking that is not supporting you. You know, people really love complaining love complaining, you know? And, um, I was, hopefully my husband will never listen to this podcast, but , I know, you know, we’re, we’re out for, for a walk and I’m telling him like, God, everything’s great.
You know, this is just, you know, um, talking about my book, number one, talking about, you know, three interviews today and going to do this and going to do that, and I’m just like, Great. You know, and then he tells me about his situation at the grocery store and how this person, you know, did this and that person did that.
And I’m like, Hmm. And I’m like, So, so what could happen today, , You know, And the thing is, is we, you have to be committed to the what, what thoughts are you, uh, thinking about? Are you thinking thoughts that are designed to, uh, and, and very meticulously aimed? To at getting what you want, or are you more committed to gossiping and, and, uh, talking about how bad it is and having a, a competition with, you know, who’s had the worst day ever, mm-hmm.
and, you know, that kind of thing. So those are just, those are a couple of things. Um, but obviously, you know, it, it takes much more than that. I mean, you have to be willing to. Some skin in the game, and you have to be willing to take action and inspired action at that. Not just, you could be taking lots and lots of actions, but if the actions that you’re taking are not in alignment with what maybe your intuition is telling you that you really need to do, um, you know, and I do talk about paying attention to the, the inner voice.
Um, Lord knows where that comes, comes from. Maybe it comes from infinite intelligence, super conscious who knows where that voice comes from, but you need to take a look at what that inner voice is saying to you and act on those things because if you are just kind of like not willing to listen to that, Voice and you’re taking action, action, action, action, action.
And those actions are not the correct actions that are leading you towards success. Then eventually you’re gonna burn yourself out and give up on your, on your goal and say, Oh, this doesn’t work. So then speaking of setting a goal towards a specific action and following through with it, what was that thought process to, to write the.
So as far as what, like what was my thought process? Yes. Like when I, um, you know, it was interesting because. I always wanted to write a book and, you know, and I’ve, I’ve written little books, um, you know, like that, uh, that I give away on my website. Mm-hmm. , you’re familiar with those kinds of books. And so I never wrote like a serious book that I was angling to become a number one best selling book.
And so there were a couple of things that kind of came. In the process of writing this book, uh, number one, if you’d asked me this time last year, if I was going to write a book in 2018, I would’ve said, No way. You’re crazy. There’s not a chance that I’m writing a book this year. As a matter of fact. Um, A uh, a dear client of mine said, Victoria, you really, really need to write a book.
Um, that’s your next step. And I just see it for you. I see this vision, I see you writing a book. I’m like, No, I don’t have time. I have n zero time for that. Another person, you know, tells me, Victoria, you need to write a book on law of attraction, blah, blah, blah. You know? And um, and I had so many different, um, because I’ve sort.
Develop myself as someone known in this law of attraction space, a lot of people are always asking me questions about how to make law of attraction work. And I’m constantly ask, answering these questions and I have various different products for them, but I just didn’t have like the place to put them.
Do you know what I mean? Yeah. Like I just, and I, so, so all of these things and then I was invited to. Create a certification training at a specific, um, hypnosis convention. And I’m like, Well, I don’t have a curriculum designed, uh, for that . And so it just, that’s always a great thing when someone else says, You’re really good at this, can you do something with it?
And you’re going, Oh yeah, I should Exactly. And I’m like, I don’t have a, So then I’m like, I guess it’s time to sit down and write that book. Yeah. And um, you know, one of my, my mentors who I got certified in Law of Attraction through one of the several, um, was as a gentleman by the name of Michael Lozier, who wrote a book actually a couple years before The Secret came out.
And his book is pretty popular called Law of Attraction. and so he’s kind of been a little mentor of mine, I shouldn’t say a little mentor . He’s a big mentor of mine and it was really interesting because I was interviewing him on my podcast and somehow or another our conversation turned into how to write a book, and he was giving me all these tips on how to write a book and, and.
Tips that he gave me just shaped my book so quickly that I really just started, um, all filling in all the missing pieces that I had, and I was able to really quickly, um, kind of get my content how I needed it. And it, it, uh, I like I realized, After you told me just to, I mean the first tip that he gave me was just make your, uh, your Word document six by nine instead of eight and a half by 11.
Cuz your book’s not gonna be eight and i eight and a half by 11. So you think that you haven’t written enough pages yet, but when you put it into six by nine you’ll realize how many pages. And he told me, you know, to write like 150 page book. And I tried to keep it a hundred. 50 pages, you know, just so it fits in a certain size envelope.
And you know, shipping would be less expensive and all that kind of stuff. And I tried to adhere to that, but the book just sort of took off and wrote itself. See, I like the opposite. I wrote mine in eight and a half by 11, just standard Word document. Then it got formatted to five by eight and I’m like, Ice just went from 96 pages to 262.
Yes, exactly. . Yeah. Our book is about the same size. It’s my mine’s 269 pages. Mm-hmm. . Yeah, . So yeah, it was, uh, it was like really interesting to, you know, cuz then, um, you know, once, cuz my book does have some, uh, illustrations and, uh, you know, Each, um, you know, each, each section has its own like little device.
So it’s like when you, when you actually sit down and, and you know, format your book, you kind of realize, wow, you know, I mean, if I had been going the way I was going, I would’ve written a 500 page book. And you know, you find in hindsight, I’m sure this happened to you too, you find like, Oh, I should have put that in my book.
I should have put that in my book. Oh yeah. It’s already happening. Yeah. You know, so part two, coming soon, . You know, like I, I really feel like the next one is gonna be, um, more of a niche, um, because again, I really like focusing on, on, you know, entrepreneurs, even more specifically digital marketers. Like myself.
And so I, you know, I feel like, wow, what a neat combination to, you know, come out in the future with, uh, law of attraction for digital entrepreneurs or something like that. . Yeah, I, You’re exactly right. That setting, that sort of landmark. In terms of this is who I am, this is what I do, and then getting specific from there.
The same way that here’s the hypnotist that you know, perhaps does begin as many of us would as the generalist, but then starts to branch out a very specific categories because that’s what we have the passion of helping and just to call it out. That’s what, when we have that passion, bringing that law of attraction side of it, now that’s that thing that we see.
We do the best work with. Exactly. Yes. It, it really is. And you only get better and better at that because you’re not, uh, dividing your energy and dividing your focus into, you know, having to be the jack of all trades and know so many things. I almost get scared now of anybody who. does so many different things.
You know, even like, I mean, when it comes to marketing, um, you know, Oh yeah, I do the, the website and the advertising and the, you know, it’s like, don’t, don’t you like, have one thing that you’re like really, really good at , and, you know, and I, I really, that’s, and that’s a lot about what this book also helps people to discover.
Cuz I really, it’s, you know, so much. This book is really about personal growth. And, and, and that’s always been my philosophy with attracting things is look, you’re gonna attract things that are at your level of, um, being able to attract, like whatever you are, wherever you are, however you are being, um, you know, that’s what you’re ready for in your life.
You know, if you are, um, you know, at a certain, certain level. Um, you know, of, of, uh, if you’re at a certain level in your job, you know, you’re not going to attract the job of a CEO if you’re the janitor, you know, you’re going to attract what you are lined up with. And so, um, that’s, you know, when it comes to being able to manifest your dreams and create your life, it, you know, it’s really about self-empowerment and whatever.
Um, Self empowerment work that you’ve done on yourself? Uh, you know, I have, and I, I rarely ever speak to these, this, these parts of my book that I need to like actually bring up. Um, but I have, in addition to these eight manifesting conditions, I also have in section four is the qualities, and I talk about this.
16 qualities that help you to become, you know, kind of a more magnetic person. Integrity, having awareness, having a good attitude. You know, all of these things are obviously going to open up doors and new opportunities for you. Beautiful. And, uh, so the book is Practical Law of Attraction, and we’ll link to that in the show notes [email protected].
And, uh, as I like to say, this is not a hypnosis podcast that pretends that other hypnosis podcasts don’t exist. Uh, so tell us about your program. Absolutely. Okay. So I also have a podcast which has been attracting some pretty cool guests lately, including yourself, Jason, Hey. Hey. Uh, called Power of Your Mind Podcast.
And I, you know, came up with that idea actually of, you know, Several, couple, couple years ago, um, a girlfriend of mine, uh, came up. She, she has these little mini meditations on her podcast, and I was just looking at her podcast and her Instagram that goes with it. And I was like, Ooh, that looks neat. That looks fun.
I wanna do that. You know, it was just sort of like fun. And I thought, well, what, what would I talk about? And of course, I, um, originally I was just doing the podcast myself and it was, You know, it was challenging week after week, coming up with new material, new new content, you know, that I, that I need to, uh, you know, talk about.
It’s like, it’s fine now the first 12 or 24 episodes you have, but then you just kind of like, well, I talked about that and I talked about that. And so I attracted like my first, uh, guess somebody, uh, reached out to me and it was somebody that I, actually, it was Christy Whitman who, um, was just somebody that I.
Uh, I looked at, I, she was somebody I kind of looked up to and I, and I was like, um, I was just so surprised when somebody reached out to me and said, Yeah, we wanna have Christy Whitman be on your, your podcast. And it, all of a sudden the lights went on. It was like, Oh yeah, I could ask other people, to to be on my show.
And, you know, once I did that, it just really, you know, you have them like tell, tell you what they wanna talk about. They pretty much supply most of the content and you know, you just say Uhhuh and you ask them the questions and you know, and, and on top of that, I learn know, And that’s exactly. That’s the cool thing is like, um, you know, just yesterday the lady that I was interviewing from my podcast, it was just so fun.
You know, I just, um, and when you and I had our conversation, you know, you learn something through these, so it’s the Power of Your Mind podcast and it’s just, About inspiring you in learning how to use, of course, the power of your mind. It’s all things, power of your mind. We talk about hypnosis, we talk about law of attraction, we talk about affirmations, meditation, um, you know, just anything self-empowerment that makes you feel good, that makes you feel that you can do it.
And have that belief in yourself, and that’s what I’m here to do. Outstanding. So we’ll link to that too, and just where can people find you in. So in general, you know, I’ve got like 35 um, websites like with this. Yeah. Why don’t we list some? No. Um, so my main website, um, that we’re, you know, all of my hypnosis recordings are is hip talk.com is spelled with a y like hypnosis, h y p t e l k.com.
And you can also learn more about. Book at practical law of attraction book.com. So, um, I’m sure, you know, we could make a whole other show or I could list all my websites , trying to actually get them all streamlined off to one, uh, website right now. So I’ll, uh, , I’ll leave that for another time. Yeah, yeah.
So leave us with one of the tips. What’s one strategy that people can put into use to start to create these actions in their. So the biggest tip really is knowing what you want and being very specific and committed to that, and getting your thoughts, your imagination, and your beliefs all lined up with that, and knowing that you.
Absolutely are going to have to take action on those things, and you will be inspired to take the necessary actions by lining up your thoughts, your beliefs with what it is that you desire to create specifically in your life.
