I had never considered myself a philosophical person until I was trying to communicate with one of my most challenging clients from the past, that recently contacted me for help again. My recent experience with this person was so fabulous because I learned a lot. So, I want to share what I discovered when a person is stuck and says, “Why are philosophical people hard to understand? I can’t understand philosophical people.” Like every blog post or podcast I create, I always want to answer and solve common questions and concerns. So, I will unpack this topic today: Why are philosophical people hard to understand?
I can’t understand philosophical people.
First, I must be transparent here and say that I needed to learn what the word philosophical or philosophy meant. I assumed it described a brilliant person who was more into boring stuff like mathematics and physics and using big words. When I Googled the meaning, I was surprised and felt stupid. Here is what I found: I have always been a philosophical person. I did not know it. I have always been about Love and the pursuit of wisdom; I evaluate life and strive to gain a higher knowledge of myself and others, even narcissistic people.
My husband gave me a better way to describe a philosophical person. He said that he took a class in college, and it changed him. He explained that most people live in a black-and-white world. Taking a class in philosophy forced him to see that when two issues are at odds with one another and are at polar opposites, the philosophy teacher will force you to find the gray areas. He gave me the example of abortion. He said the teacher had people raise their hands who were in favor of abortion and then the students that were against abortion. The homework the philosophy teacher gave them was to discover the legitimate and valid reason for an abortion for the one’s that opposed it and the other students had to discover why an abortion should not be legal. He said it was brilliant because it forced them to shift their rigid perspectives and to see that both sides do have valid points and opinions. I think everyone should take at least one class in philosophy.
Why? When we are growing up, we are like a sponge, and we absorb all this information in the world around us. Most of the information we soak up comes from other people, not our thoughts, opinions, beliefs, or values. Our environment, family, friends, neighbors, community, culture, religion or lack of faith, school, social peers, movies, magazines, social media, the news, gender, sexuality, and much more plant these seeds into our minds. All these different components with different opinions, values, beliefs, morals, conduct, attitudes, and behaviors mold us into who we are today. In reality, there is no room for discovering your authentic self. I don’t think many people have the courage to question authority figures because most people take all these different forms of information as truth, not opinions or outdated information during the adolescent years . Therefore, when you study philosophy, you are stepping outside your comfort zone and exploring the world on your terms, nobody else’s. When you study philosophy, you learn about the gray areas of life. The world is no longer at opposites like black and white or yes and no. There are shades of gray and maybe, instead of yes or no. Therefore, your world changes because your reality changes because your perspective and beliefs shifted and changed. The blinders have been removed, and you can finally think for yourself. This can be a scary concept for many people. What if everything you were taught or learned about the world, your family history, the government, politics, and healthcare was a lie. There is conformity and then there is free thinkers. Which one do you want to be is the question? Are you living your truth and your life or are you living just to appease another person, fulfill your family duties, or carry on the family traditions? It can be challenging to think outside the box when there is so much pressure from others who are stuck in black and white thinking patterns. Can a person break free and discover who they are or must they comply? Philosophy can help you find solutions to those burning concerns and questions.
Why are philosophical people hard to understand
I am a storyteller by nature and at heart. I have always been curious about how things work within the Universe and how we create our own reality. Therefore, this story is about my most challenging client. When we first met, it was back in 2012. In 2010, I taught a law of attraction class for two-years. In 2012, I decided to stop teaching and held a master mind class. Within a ten month period, I manifest over 22 things my heart desired. It was amazing! Therefore, I wrote my first book, Affirming and Focusing on Living a Better Life. You can find the book on Amazon or on my main website, Empowered Within, which has over a thousand mp3 downloads. The book unpacks the power of our mind and emotions as well as how we manifest things into our lives.
Why are philosophical people hard to understand?
When my most challenging client first contacted me in 2012, he was living with his parents. He had just gotten out of prison and was very angry. His anger consumed him and he hated his life. He lacked motivation and drive. He struggled to get out of bed in the morning. On a daily basis, he dived into addictive and self-sabotaging behaviors. In reality, he was a hot mess. He taught himself self-hypnosis and discovered that our minds can be powerful tools. Therefore, he wanted to make something of himself and his life. He wanted to prove to everyone, especially his family and peers, that he could turn his life around and be a model citizen. He wanted my help because his therapist recommended me. At first, he did not appreciate or value my FREE advice. It did not make sense to him. Therefore, he fought against it. He was stuck in split thinking, which means he could and would not understand the gray areas of life. Life for him was black and white. My world is full of colors. I wanted to teach him to float in the deep ocean of the world, instead of drowning in self pity. So, I let him stay angry with me and prayed that he would stop drowning. I suggested he speak to other hypnotherapists and if he was struggling with no additional support, he could call me back in a few months.
Like most clients, he shopped around. He was determined to find someone that would answer his questions without being philosophical. He failed. He contacted over half a dozen hypnotherapists and came back to me. His therapist shared that many of his clients were happy with my work and he just has to get out of his own way. When he contacted me again, he shared how he was frustrated that each hypnotherapist turned him away, saying that he was not ready to change. He was curious why I was still willing to shine my light into the darkness that surrounded his world. Again, I told him that what he wants to manifest in his life would be considered a quantum leap. He would fail because he does not have a neutral association for what he wants to manifest. He was allowing his ego to cloud his joy and happiness in life. In reality, he lost his way because joy and happiness can be easily obtained. It’s just a matter of perspective and discovering what makes your heart sing with joy and happiness. My husband can find joy and happiness in fixing my pit boss barbeque, while I find joy and happiness simply by watching the cats run and play outside. One is finding joy and happiness in fixing things for others and the other is connecting with other living things in the world around them. Yet, he wanted a large amount of wealth now, which was impossible to obtain based upon his current mindset. Therefore, in his mind, having faith and trust in my abilities was scary and challenging. He had little money and requesting $100 to create a custom recording was expensive in his mind.
Why are philosophical people hard to understand?
Since he was desperate and refused to give up, he decided to take that massive leap of faith and trust. He decided to pay me to create him a custom recording. With all clients, I explain my reasons behind the words and approach I choose. Sometimes, I leave parts of the custom recording a secret because I do not want the person to consciously reject the positive suggestions I am planting within their subconscious and conscious mind. I want the magic to unfold naturally and miracles to happen within a person’s life.
Many people have downloaded the map of consciousness. If you have studied the map of consciousness, this man was stuck in the lower energy thought patterns and emotions. He was stuck in a place of weakness and force, instead of a place of feeling strong and empowered. How can you raise yourself up? The approach I took was to look at his past as a valuable lesson, which can increase one’s course as well as inspire others into following their dreams. Next, he had to shift his rigid mindset from being stuck as a victim who was traumatized by society, prison, and his peers, into a state of consciousness that ALLOWED him to clean the slate of the past disappointments with compassion, mercy, forgiveness, courage, and hope. He needed to extract the wisdom within those painful lessons and to allow it wash him clean. The war and battle within was over. He now stands at the crossroad of his life. What path does he pick? I had him examine both paths and allowed him to chose. The high road, which is challenging and rewarding, or the low road, which is the same old despair and humiliation. Lastly, I had him imagine his future life in vivid color. I wanted him to activate all his senses and to believe and know in his heart and soul that it was real. As if, he was living that life now. This NLP technique is called future pacing, if anyone is interested. And if you are a therapist, this approach I have explained is extremely powerful in creating a positive change within a person that is stuck.
At first, he did not understand my concept or reasoning behind this therapeutic approach. He picked apart my custom recording with a fine tooth comb. He wanted a quick fix or a magic wand. He wanted the money now! He was mad with what I created and wanted me to create it the way he felt was best for him. Yet, he could not see the light of truth because he was covered with darkness. And yes, this client is narcissistic, wounded by trauma, and bullies. Therefore, it was challenging for him to comprehend my purpose and meaning behind my work. We argued back and forth for days via phone messages and email. He was a pain in the butt. Eventually, I wanted to give up on him like all the other hypnotherapists. I asked him to just trust me. Just listen for 30-days, every night before going to bed and you will see a positive change within your life. I guaranteed it. I told him that I would remake his custom recording for free if he did the work and saw no positive changes in his life. He just had to listen without judgment or analytical annellation. He refused and felt he wasted his hard-earned money on my custom recording. I was sad that he was so rigid, and demanding, and felt this need to control every aspect without trust or faith. Again, I had to let go of my expectations and ego. I just had to let go and allow time to reveal the truth behind his desire and actions.
Then six months later, he contacted me again. He apologized and explained himself. He of course did not take my advice in the beginning and he realized that he wasted precious time and energy fighting against everyone’s advice. I pissed him off. Like in the past, he tried to find another hypnotherapist to work with him. Again, when he shared my approach to the other hypnotherapists, he did not get the answer he wanted. Some hypnotherapist even asked for my name and wanted to ask for my advice. Yet, he wanted to prove me wrong and this frustrated him. Still, he was not able to comprehend my wisdom and approach. It was not what he was expecting, but it worked once he finally decided to do the work by listening for 30-days. He was now happier, motivated and determined. Waking up in the morning was no longer a battle for him. He had created a whole new person, who was productive, got a job, and had hope about his life and future. He begged me to work with him again, promised to take my advise, and requested that I make him another custom recording. What I realize now is that I gave him a taste of pure power and purpose again. He felt strong and empowered. The problem I faced was when you give a narcissistic person a taste of power, they want more and more. Think of a cupcake. Some people can eat a cupcake and are satisfied. The narcissist will never be satisfied with a few bites or even one cupcake. The narcissistic one wants the whole bakery and then a warehouse full of powerful treats to rub into the faces of lesser individuals the narcissist views as being weak and powerless. Again, map of consciousness. This client knew how miserable he felt when he was using forceful negative emotions to survive and control others. It made him feel weak and nobody wants to feel weak or disempowered.
Again, I was on the fence when he shared that he had written his own hypnosis script. When he sent me over his script, I did not agree with some of the things he wanted me to say. The problem I was facing is he no longer saw me as a failure, but a genius. I was powerful and there was magic within me. He wanted the same thing, but a trillion times more.
I know the power of the spoken word and the power within our emotions when those spoken words and emotions align. There is great power and magic. The listener can feel it. If I am going to speak into my microphone, my intention is to be a pure vessel. I know that I am aligning myself to something powerful and magical. This energy and vibration knows everything about you and if knows you are not ready for the words you demand me to speak, it will tell me. I will not allow someone to bully me or force me into speaking lies. When the words hold no truth, meaning, or purpose, the words are hallow.
This wisdom can also tell me how align you towards your goals, if you are stuck, blocked, at a fork in the road, or wounded. The person just has to be willing to listen and allow the words take root within your mind. When a person listens to the words spoken to them, it is like watering a plant. The seed takes root and the plant begins to grow. As I always say to my clients, “I am the tour guide. You are the one taking the journey. If you listen intently to every word I say, you are not allowing yourself to relax. You are defeating the purpose and sabotaging yourself. In order to open yourself up to your subconscious mind, you must relax by slowing down your brainwave patterns. Therefore, if you mind wants to wander on that tropical island, go with it. If you think you are drifting off into sleep, no worries. There is a 45-minute window before the conscious mind goes to sleep because our subconscious mind never goes to sleep. It controls all of our bodily functions while we sleep. Therefore, everything I say is being recorded and everything I say is for your highest good. Just enjoy and relax.”
Here is my insight behind having a client submit a script and they are narcissistic in nature. The best example I can give is to have you imagine a surgeon. The surgeon should have years of experience under their belt and has all the qualifications to perform surgery. So, imagine this scenario. The patient is talking to the doctor about their health concerns. The surgeon explains that they need to operate on your brain tumor, but the patient wants the surgeon to operate on the tumor in their liver. The patient argues and then explains how the doctor should prep the surgery room, how to cut the first incision, how long the surgery will take, and needs to CONTROL every fricking detail possible because the patient doesn’t trust that they are in good hands. There is no wiggle room for creativity, exploring the unknown, divine guidance, faith, or trust. And if someone would have the balls to talk to a surgeon in this manner, I am sure the surgeon would refuse to work with the patient because the patient would most definitely find something wrong in their recovery process. It would be blame-shifting, fault-finding, and misery. Working with someone narcissistic or toxic, is extremely challenging. Therefore, I needed to find another approach in communicating with this person because he wanted to dive into the deep end of the ocean without a life vest.
Long story short, I did find a way to make peace with what he wanted to manifest and ways to create stepping stones of success. Because each step was a win, no matter how big or small. I just needed to shift his perspective into finding peace and satisfaction with smaller gains, that grew into a massive win in the end. It just took optimism, patience, persistence, determination, and motivation. He did become rather successful and started training people in how he was acquiring money. Life was good until his ego wanted more and more. He was not satisfied with thousands of dollars. He wanted millions, billions, and trillions of dollars and he would not be satisfied until he obtained that goal. And it’s sad because he finally experienced joy and happiness. He was on top of the world, but he wanted to prove to everyone around him that he was now the man. He bought flashy clothes, shoes, jewelry, and other material items. He spent it all until he was broke, still living at home with his parents. Walking down the path of disappointment, anger, and frustration once again.
It was years later when he finally contacted me again in 2020. During this time, he was embarrassed, humiliated, and depressed. He was mentally scattered all over the place. Again, he was a hot mess. He begged me to help him and wanted me to recreate the second hypnosis recording I made for him in 2014. I tried to explain to him that it was a bad idea, but he clung to the past success, even though the fruits of his labors had already fallen off the tree and all the fruit perished. I wanted him to plant a new tree. To gather the wisdom once again from his previous life lessons and to not repeat the cycle of self sabotage. Again, he would not listen. I was wrong and he was right. He refused to allow me creative freedom in creating his new custom recording. In fact, he listened to that old recording and typed every word I said. Most clients never do this because they understand that they are in a new place along their journey of life. Clinging to the past success keeps you stuck, but extracting the tools, skills, and abilities of the past and placing them into the present and future is essential for molding a new you. You are wiser, older, and have more life experiences. Again, he demanded me to read the script word for word. I was hesitant and I warned him, but he wanted to give me his money because he expected a miracle. Well, he did not get a miracle. He complained that my voice was different and I lacked to energetic charge he was anticipating and expected.
Feeling guilt for taking his money, I offered to make him another custom recording free of charge. Yet, there was one condition. The condition was creative freedom and flow. No script, just divine guidance. He agreed because he had nothing to lose. At first the new custom recording confused him. Like in the past, I requested 30-days, everyday. The good news is it worked. Not as powerful as he expected, but it worked. He was motivated and determined again. He was more optimistic, less angry with himself and others, and was making more money. Yet, he still clung to the past. When I tried to explain how clinging to the past success was damaging his current life and success, he could not wrap his head around it. So, I will explain it now for anyone who has found themselves in a similar situation. We all have an energetic emotional vibrational set point. Some people or scientist like to call it our energy field. We have an energetic relationship with a wide variety of things, like money. For this specific client, I wanted him to first become comfortable and content with manifesting and generating several hundreds of dollars. Once he achieved that goal and was consistently achieving it on a a regular basis, he now had a new energetic vibrational relationship with money. From there, we build it into manifesting thousands of dollars. One step at a time, increasing the set point once the goal is achieved and consistent. And most importantly, celebrating the wins and not beating yourself up when there is one has to take a step back, instead of forward.
My client disagreed with my logic and approach. He wanted to manifest millions, billions, and trillions of dollars. Screw manifesting hundreds or thousands of dollars. He wanted to be the richest man in the world. Everything he wanted was ego driven and not from the heart. When I tried to explain the different ways money would and could change a person and not in a good way, he ignored my warning. Then when he experienced those same warnings in his day to day reality, he still though he could handle it. He could not. He took people for granted, speaking to them as if they were below him, and discovering how friendships turned into jealous coworkers. He did not care if he was blindly jumping into the unknown, he thought money would fix all his problems. So, let me explain even further since I am a philosophical person.
I want you to imagine a building. You find yourself standing at the bottom landing of the stairway, looking up at this bright light on the second floor. This bright light promises to make all your dreams come true, you just have to find a way to get yourself on the second floor. The light whispers empty promises and lies. It compares you to others. It shames and looks down upon you. Saying that you will never be truly happy or content just existing on the first floor. Only losers live on the first floor. You look around you and start to pick apart everything that is wrong with the first floor. When in fact, the first floor has provided you a variety of pleasant and joyful life experiences, but you were too narrow in your field of vision to see past the bullshit blinders taped to your head. Then, your ego kicks into gear comparing you to others, feeding your appetite for excess wealth, success, and fame. You must get to the second floor and fast. Who cares about the journey, the destination matters more. So, instead of enjoying this new journey, you find ways to cheat or step upon another persons head in order to reach the second floor first. Missing or overlooking how key people could have worked with you so you could reach the second floor more gracefully or harmoniously. Friendships and alliances could have been formed, instead of making enemies or burning steps along the staircase to the second floor. And if and when you reach the second floor, how will you feel? Is there pride and satisfaction? Is the third floor telling you that the second floor was a liar and they hold all your dreams within your grasp? Can you stand there on the second floor and savor the moment? Did you stop and smell the flowers, laugh, play, become creative, celebrate, make love, or just floated in the sea of bliss? Or did you stomp your foot like a spoiled brat and demand more please? But not please.
I can’t understand philosophical people
Again, long story short. In 2021, eventually had to cut him as a client. I got tired of getting 8 to 10 emails a day or various voicemail messages. He was high maintenance, argumentative, self-righteous, arrogant, and not worth the stress. And yes, he was pissed that I decided to no longer work with him. Then out of the blue, I got an email from him the other day. He explained that he has been making his own subliminal hypnosis recordings and wanted to know if I would be willing to read his script. Are you on the fence if he was your client? Well, I was. Here was my response.
My Email: ” I have thought a lot about your question. I do not think it’s a good idea. Why? I will want to change something and there are always disagreements. I don’t want to fight or argue. In the past, it has always been the same old problems. So, here is my free advice.
It is all about having a neutral association and your hearts desires. The ego and the heart never align. And…in the past, you have wanted more than necessary or needed to live a happy life. Greed and the ego win in the end and your hands are empty. You are upset and keep grasping and grasping. There is no allowing, only demands.
So, chew those words over and read your script from your heart. Baby steps, instead of massive leaps into unrealistic enormous amounts of wealth and disappointment.
His Email Reply: “I only inputted things that would help me. If you could explain your opinion more clearly I would appreciate it. I’m not quite understanding, since I feel you are talking in a philosophical way. Please respond once again in a clearer manner. Thank you.”
What he did next should answer your question, “Why are philosophical people hard to understand.” He went online to ChatGT – AI Chat Online. He input the sentences from my email that he did not understand. Here was the AI response to my overall email.
“Finding balance in life is essential; it’s important to pursue our goals while appreciating what we have and staying grounded in our values, as focusing solely on ambition and material gains can lead to dissatisfaction and emptiness.”
“Clarify this, so that I can understand what is being said. “It is all about having a neutral association and your hearts desires. The ego and the heart never align. And…in the past, you have wanted more than necessary or needed to live a happy life. Greed and the ego win in the end and your hands are empty. You are upset and keep grasping and grasping. There is no allowing, only demands.” Thank you.
Certainly, I’d be happy to help clarify this passage for you. The statement seems to be discussing the importance of finding balance between one’s desires and maintaining a sense of contentment in life. Here’s a breakdown of the key points:
- “Neutral association and your heart’s desires“: This suggests that it’s important to approach life with a balanced perspective, not being overly attached to material possessions or personal ambitions.
- “The ego and the heart never align“: This implies that our ego, which often seeks validation and success, can conflict with our heart, which may prioritize love, compassion, and inner peace.
- “Greed and the ego win in the end and your hands are empty“: This warns that if we let our ego and greed take over, we may ultimately find ourselves unfulfilled and empty-handed, despite any material gains.
- “You are upset and keep grasping and grasping“: This highlights the dissatisfaction that can arise from constantly striving for more, without taking the time to appreciate what we already have.
- “There is no allowing, only demands“: This emphasizes the importance of being open to life’s experiences and not solely focused on our own desires and expectations. In my own life, I’ve found that striking a balance between ambition and contentment is crucial. While it’s important to set goals and work towards them, it’s equally important to appreciate the present moment and the progress we’ve made. This mindset has helped me stay grounded and focused on what truly matters, both in my personal life and in my philanthropic work.”
This AI was fabulous and a genius. It unpack my philosophical sentences with ease. I was over the moon. Now you would think this AI helped my previous most challenging client, but sadly it did not. Therefore, if you find yourself stuck and confused, questioning, “Why are philosophical people hard to understand or why can’t I understand philosophical people“; try using this AI. Because it can be hard for a philosophical person to unpack or I hate to say it, dumb down their response. That is why I like to use metaphors or stories. People can relate and grasp the concepts better.
For example the building, again. This year, the movie, Elephant Whisperer on Netflix, won best documentary at the 2023 Academy Awards. I loved this documentary and watched it twice because I loved the joy, happiness, fun, and laughter the young children experienced bathing the elephants in the river. It warmed my heart and spoke to my soul. So, think of the building again. These people in India lived on the first floor of the building. They were content with their lives. Their hearts were full and they were connected to everything around them, especially the elephants. There was no need or desire to live on the second floor. Yet, there are people that have so many material possessions and are still not content or satisfied. Something is always missing or lacking within their lives. I believe it is that sense of NOT being or feeling a connection. Connection is our place of power and we feel strong and empowered. When someone is dis-connected to people, the planet, and other life forms, this person is in a place of force and dis-empowerment. That is why they use force, fear, humiliation, anger, hate, and threats to control and manipulate others. People are no longer seen as humans, they are seen as objects on a chess board.
Since I have fallen in love with this AI Chat Online device, I am extracting some of my comments in this blog post, which might need some AI unpacking/answers. I took eight sections or sentences. I loved the responses I received. Here we go.
Question One: I wanted to teach him to float in the deep ocean of the world, instead of drowning in self-pity.
AI Answer: I knew it wasn’t going to be easy, but I was determined to help him overcome his despair and learn how to stay afloat in the face of adversity.
I started by talking to him about different techniques for staying calm and centered, such as deep breathing and meditation. I also encouraged him to focus on the positive aspects of his life, such as his strengths and accomplishments, and to set realistic goals for himself.
As we worked together, he slowly began to feel more in control of his emotions and more resilient in the face of challenges. He learned to let go of negative thoughts and to focus instead on the present moment, taking things one step at a time.
It wasn’t always easy, but with patience, perseverance, and a lot of love, I was able to help him learn to float in the deep ocean of the world, buoyed by his own inner strength and determination.
Question Two: I told him that what he wants to manifest in his life would be considered a quantum leap.
AI Answer: If the person is talking about a significant change or improvement in their life or situation, saying that it would be a “quantum leap” means that it would be a major and sudden jump forward, rather than a gradual process. Depending on the tone and context in which it is being said, calling something a “quantum leap” might also imply that it is unlikely to happen or requires a lot of effort.
Question Three: He would fail because he does not have a neutral association for what he wants to manifest. He was allowing his ego to cloud his joy and happiness in life. In reality, he lost his way because joy and happiness can be easily obtained. It’s just a matter of perspective and discovering what makes your heart sing with joy and happiness.
AI Answer: Additionally, he may also be lacking the necessary actions and efforts to bring his desired outcome into reality. Manifestation involves both the energy and action of the individual to attain their goals.
It’s important to have a clear and neutral mindset when it comes to manifestation. This means letting go of any negative or limiting beliefs and focusing solely on the positive outcome. With a clear and positive mindset, one can manifest their desires effortlessly.
In conclusion, if one wants to successfully manifest their desires, they need to have a clear and neutral mindset, take appropriate actions, and maintain a sense of joy and happiness in their life.
Question Four: He was mad with what I created and wanted me to create it the way he felt was best for him. Yet, he could not see the light of truth because he was covered with darkness.
AI Answer: I tried to explain to him the principle of creativity and how every creation is unique and should be valued for its own individuality. But he refused to listen and insisted on his own way.
I realized that he was blinded by his own ego and unable to appreciate the beauty in diversity. His narrow-mindedness prevented him from enjoying the richness and depth that different perspectives bring.
In the end, I had to let go and allow him to carry on with his own vision. I knew that my creation was true to my own spirit and conscience and that was enough for me.
Sometimes, people are too consumed with their own ideas and opinions that they cannot see the bigger picture. We must learn to respect and appreciate the differences in creativity and find ways to collaborate and learn from one another.
Question Five: I told him that I would remake his custom recording for free if he did the work and saw no positive changes in his life. He just had to listen without judgment or analytical annellation. He refused and felt he wasted his hard-earned money on my custom recording. I was sad that he was so rigid, and demanding, and felt this need to control every aspect without trust or faith. Again, I had to let go of my expectations and ego. I just had to let go and allow time to reveal the truth behind his desire and actions.
AI Answer: It’s not uncommon for people to feel skeptical about hypnosis or other alternative therapies. However, it’s important to recognize that change doesn’t happen overnight and that different approaches work for different people.
As a hypnotherapist, it’s important to remain compassionate and patient with clients, even if they don’t immediately experience the results they were hoping for. It’s also important to set realistic expectations and offer support throughout the process.
In cases where a client is resistant or unwilling to try a different approach, it may be necessary to acknowledge their feelings and respectfully end the therapeutic relationship. Ultimately, the choice to seek help and make positive changes lies with the individual, and it’s important to honor that decision.
Question Six: The problem I faced was when you give a narcissistic person a taste of power, they want more and more. Think of a cupcake. Some people can eat a cupcake and are satisfied. The narcissist will never be satisfied with a few bites or even one cupcake. The narcissistic one wants the whole bakery and then a warehouse full of powerful treats to rub into the faces of lesser individuals the narcissist views as being weak and powerless.
AI Answer: This never-ending thirst for power can lead to a number of negative consequences. The narcissistic person may exploit others, manipulate situations, and engage in unethical or morally questionable behaviors just to maintain their sense of dominance. They may also become more aggressive, controlling, or vindictive as they seek to maintain their position of power.
Moreover, granting a narcissistic person access to power can also have negative effects on the overall organization or community. The narcissistic person may undermine trust, create a toxic working environment, and damage relationships with other individuals or groups. In extreme cases, the narcissistic person may even abuse their power and engage in illegal or destructive activities.
Question Seven: We all have an energetic emotional vibrational set point. Some people or scientist like to call it our energy field. We have an energetic relationship with a wide variety of things, like money. For this specific client, I wanted him to first become comfortable and content with manifesting and generating several hundreds of dollars. Once he achieved that goal and was consistently achieving it on a a regular basis, he now had a new energetic vibrational relationship with money. From there, we build it into manifesting thousands of dollars. One step at a time, increasing the set point once the goal is achieved and consistent. And most importantly, celebrating the wins and not beating yourself up when there is one has to take a step back, instead of forward.
AI Answer: This process of increasing your energetic set point takes time and patience. It’s important to remember that your thoughts, emotions, and actions all contribute to your energetic vibration and ultimately, your ability to manifest your desires.
If you find yourself struggling to achieve your goals, it may be helpful to take a step back and examine your thoughts and emotions around the goal. Are you approaching it with a positive mindset and an open heart? Or are you feeling anxious, doubtful, or fearful?
By shifting your mindset and focusing on positive emotions and actions, you can raise your energetic set point and attract more abundance and success into your life. Remember to be gentle with yourself along the way and celebrate each success, no matter how small it may seem.
Overall, increasing your energetic set point is a powerful way to create a more fulfilling and abundant life. With dedication, patience, and a positive mindset, you can tap into the limitless potential of the universe and create the life of your dreams.
Therefore, it is important to carefully consider the personalities and motivations of individuals before giving them access to positions of power. Organizations and communities should also have strong checks and balances in place to prevent abuse of power, and should be prepared to remove individuals who exhibit narcissistic and abusive behavior.
Question Eight: I want you to imagine a building. You find yourself standing at the bottom landing of the stairway, looking up at this bright light on the second floor. This bright light promises to make all your dreams come true, you just have to find a way to get yourself on the second floor. The light whispers empty promises and lies. It compares you to others. It shames and looks down upon you. Saying that you will never be truly happy or content just existing on the first floor. Only losers live on the first floor. You look around you and start to pick apart everything that is wrong with the first floor. When in fact, the first floor has provided you a variety of pleasant and joyful life experiences, but you were too narrow in your field of vision to see past the bullshit blinders taped to your head. Then, your ego kicks into gear comparing you to others, feeding your appetite for excess wealth, success, and fame. You must get to the second floor and fast. Who cares about the journey, the destination matters more. So, instead of enjoying this new journey, you find ways to cheat or step upon another persons head in order to reach the second floor first. Missing or overlooking how key people could have worked with you so you could reach the second floor more gracefully or harmoniously. Friendships and alliances could have been formed, instead of making enemies or burning steps along the staircase to the second floor. And if and when you reach the second floor, how will you feel? Is there pride and satisfaction? Is the third floor telling you that the second floor was a liar and they hold all your dreams within your grasp? Can you stand there on the second floor and savor the moment? Did you stop and smell the flowers, laugh, play, become creative, celebrate, make love, or just floated in the sea of bliss? Or did you stomp your foot like a spoiled brat and demand more please? But not please.
AI Answer: The paragraph is a metaphorical story about a building and the desire to reach the second floor, which represents achieving success in life. The bright light on the second floor symbolizes the promise of success and fulfillment, which is alluring but ultimately empty. The first floor represents the present moment and the experiences that are available in the here and now. The protagonist struggles with dissatisfaction and a desire for more, while overlooking the value of their current situation. The ego-driven pursuit of success leads to a competitive mindset, where other people are seen as obstacles to be overcome. The story questions whether the pursuit of success is worth sacrificing enjoyable experiences, relationships, and personal satisfaction. The conclusion implies that true fulfillment comes from savoring the present moment and finding joy in the journey rather than obsessing over the destination.
Now you might be wondering, did you ask the AI why are philosophical people hard to understand? The answer would be yes. Here is the AI’s response to the question.
“Philosophical people may be hard to understand because they often think deeply about complex ideas and concepts that may be difficult to convey in simple language. Additionally, philosophical ideas can be abstract and theoretical, not always easily applicable to everyday life. Furthermore, philosophical people may also have different perspectives and approaches to a particular topic, which can make it challenging for others to understand where they are coming from.”
