Are Your Goals for 2020 Ambitious? If so, you can join us (me and my gang in private facebook group) and let’swork together tomake them happen. I want a community of people who can make working together on this project .
Self-Hypnosis Streaming Membership website. The main purpose of this membership is to offer members access to hypnotherapists and their audios and videos all about Self-hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy, NLP and other talk therapies. .
Expanding Content:- – The main goal is to piggyback more and more content from individual hypnotherapists. In fact, I am already talking to hypnotherapists with exceptional, or unique interests, with a view to adding them to the membership vault of content. (golfers who are members should look out for new hypnosis sessions this month) .
Popular Pricing:- Our deliberate policy is to keep the membership price LOW. We want YOU to have the hots for, and take a liking to, learning so much more about the whole field of Hypnosis. WOW point is that the membership is LOW COST, but high — VERY HIGH VALUE. …….
Hypnosis Content For The Changing Needs in Your Life:- The next WOW factor is about the membership area content of audios and videos. Once you start using hypnosis and have learned more about using it effectively you will realise that you can expand your horizons by using the power of your thinking brain. .
Therapy or Self-Help:- The obstacles in our lives arrive suddenly and your psychological needs will also fluctuate. At other times we are keen to develop our resourcefulness. How good will it be to have trained hypnotherapist content and advice available at all times? This help from a potpourri of influential hypnotherapists [Relationships, money problems, work burnout, stress, accidents, death or whatever.] .
Available on Any Device Wherever There is Internet Connection:- Simplicity is the aim – streamed content is available on any device, at any place in the world that has an internet connection. The content is delivered to you over your phone, tablets or computers in privacy, and never sits around on your devices .
All Content Additions Are Available :- The content is updated frequently and is available to all members instantaneously. .
Three Main Content Areas in The Hypnosis for Streaming:-
Educational – Research Based Science of Self-Hypnosis with how the self-hypnosis sessions works and can be used effectively,
Therapeutic – self-hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy, NLP and other talk therapies. Mental health, addictions, phobias. anxiety etc.
Self Development – Full programmes – eg Motivation, Creativity, Wealth Mindset, Self-Esteem and Confidence, Running are examples.
BLOG 2 [Specifically For Hypnotherapists and Mental Therapists] – This Blog Points Out How Individual Therapists Can Have An Online International Audience
As A Hypnotherapist You May Want To Join Me in This Win-Win Venture:- I want to work with a large range of hypnotherapists and other talk therapists, who already make audios and videos. .
Do You Make Audios and Videos? Many hypnotherapists record scripts for their one-to-one clients… BUT… What is stopping you making therapeutic audios, sharing your knowledge and skills, aimed at all the people (billions of them) seeking help with their mental challenges? .
I Know Some Of You Will Have Reservations – But I Wonder Why? I have watched hundreds of hypnotherapists train – and I know that your one-to-one approach is the best thing possible. BUT clients do not have the time. or the money, to get your ongoing direct support, that is not the real world . However sharing your skills and advice with self-hypnosis audio sessions is practical and possible. I say to you – please make your knowledge and skills available to a massive audience.
Your Branding and Self Promotion:- As a participating hypnotherapist you will have space in the membership area to set up your profile. This is particularly great for you if you are a specialist in some category. I see the membership area as a place where you will be able to arrange on-line appointments and consultations via Skype, Zoom or whatever. .
Recurring Online Income – (See Next Section) Also, of course, you will be able to promote the membership to your list and clients so that you can get on-going recurring income.

BLOG 3 [Exclusive Affiliate Recurring Income] – This Blog Gives You Just An Introduction For VIP Members Who Promote The Hypnosis For Streaming Membership.
When You Are a Member You Will Discover The Value and Content:- Our affiliate programme is exclusively for members. Look for details in the third blog. .
It All Makes Sense Being Exclusive To Members:- Affiliates often approach me to ask to promote the membership. My view is that is only takes two 50% commissions to make your membership FREE – so if you can’t achieve that how good an affiliate are you? The most important point about being successful is knowing the product you are promoting. Hence the requirement to be a member. .
As a New Member You Have The Option To Make Your Membership FREE:- It is optional for members to become an affiliate. If you do want to make money online this is the first step you should make. The first step is to introduce and get two new members. You will receive information from me about getting your affiliate link. You will get 50% recurring for each new member (which means that after you have introduced two new members, your own membership cost is covered) .
Private Facebook Group:- This month I have set up a Facebook Group where I will be able to advise members about new additions to the membership area. Also I will help you build a mailing list for e-mail campaigns. In other words I want to help you with our Win-Win project to make online income affiliate money and build the membership of Self-Hypnosis Streaming. .
A Secret For All Members:- I have a really important secret that I will share with members in the Private Facebook Group. It is all about how to market effectively and earn extra income.
‘I Have Two Actions You Can Take Today Which I Hope Will Excite You… But PLEASE Read Through This Blog Because I am Looking For ‘Go-For-It’ Venture Partners!!
Let me first of all wish you a Happy and Prosperous New Year with the New Years greetings I sent to my friends with pictures of me and my family on Christmas Day.
I Mainly Want To Talk About YOU … BUT Let Me Briefly Explain What and Why I Am On This Retirement Project
The main reason that I wanted to start with that recent picture is that I am keen for you understand my current health situation.
I want to work with some of you that are reading this so you should know all about me.
That is me up front, hopefully looking ok for a 72 year old guy, with my daughter Zoe (Art Curator and University Lecturer), my son Tom (teacher – computer science) and my better half, Babs (Health Visitor)
So all is good…
Mmm – well not totally
We all have issues, be them health, relationships, money etc and I have my own specific personal challenge at the moment BUT it is not being allowed to get in my way. I have to say that the family you see with me in the photo are the most supportive and caring family I could possibly have and are as positive as I am about my current health problem.
I have cancer and am having clinical trial immunotherapy treatment which I have been having at the Royal Free Hospital in London every two weeks for treatment.
Many of you will NOT know me but it is easy to find out whatever you like in my blog where I write, hopefully with some humour about my life travels and travails.
I hope if you read that article, you will understand the ‘WHAT and WHY’ section below.
****[I had a scan on New Years eve and I will find out when I return for treatment on the 14th January, exactly what is the progress of my treatment and the cancer.]
The WHAT and WHY
I spent my main career working life as a registered nurse [physical and psychology and mental health].
When I retired from from general nursing in 1996 I set up a business developing websites.
One of the websites I developed was for a Clinical Hypnotherapist Adam Eason [self-hypnosis, cognitive behavioural therapy, mindfulness and so on] .
And now I am getting the best training of all, about the link between mental and physical interaction, AS A PATIENT.
I now have accumulated knowledge about the incredibly intimate relationship between the physical and mental aspects of health. The knowledge I have now I so wish that I had in my early nursing days.
BUT what I want is for you to have the same access to all the therapeutic resources that I have, to to ‘on-the-shoulder’support, advice and hypnosis sessions from top hypnotherapists.
I am passionate about holistic care and want to get as much help as I have from trained talk therapists.
‘Self-Hypnosis Streaming’ is the Membership website I am really pleased to introduce to as many people as possible.
In other blog articles you will find why I think that this membership area can offer self-development and mental behavioural support.
My 2020 Goal -To Be Bought With Online Income Only
Yes that is quite an ask – BUT the preparation has been done and I am ready to fly with this.
I have set up a streaming service of Self-Hypnosis audios and videos which I want to promote with a team of Affiliates and Joint Venture partners.
YES – I am on the recruit!! This blog is the start of my streaming project.
There is no way on earth that I could do this on my own, and every message I put out there, will be to find people with ambition and determination to overcome whatever is holding them back.
This is a Win-Win situation and I want to be paying YOU well.
The reason – I will be getting closer to my motorhome.
There is no excuse – as you can see I am not letting health issues slow me down. Just use whatever is available in the membership website to motivate you, make you more creativity, overcome any behaviour problems etc. No excuses – just take action and things can change.
I told you about my health challenge so that you can see I am not letting anything get in the way of what I want to achieve this year.
My blog in two days time will tell you more about becoming an affiliate and working with me for 50% or higher commissions.
So What Is Your Goal? Maybe … Positive Mindset AND…
I nearly did a second image with a female on it. He/She is only a cartoon though.
I really would love to hear from you.
If one of your resolutions is to earn an online income. Well do I need to say it? – Just keep tuned.
Start The Year With TWO Actions – Take Some Action Today – No Obligation
Hypnosis is a word that is so misunderstood.
You can find plenty of blogs where I rant on about this. The subject is misunderstood . Talk Therapies are great and help so many people get amazing support from talk therapy’s.
Anyway I am not going to go into that further here.
Let’s get back on Positive Ground…

I have been working all this year to put together my Hypnosis For Streaming package with a simple online income plan for affiliates.
The real SECRET is to read this page and take ACTION.
Any questions at all JUST call me on 07401 719619 or Skype keithaw2k1 me.
Online Income – No Age Barrier – Please Read This And Fully Understand My Plan.
Each week I join a group of people on a weekly masterclass in internet marketing and making online income. In fact the timing of the online meeting is a nuisance to me because I have to get back from badminton and am always hot and disheveled – we are visible on the screen to other participants – I might not look good but it is great that they can’t smell me.
The participants on the Zoom(great webinar service)masterclass call are a great source of knowledge – and I never want to miss the session. I will tell you more about David and Jen who run this group, below.
The participants all have different niches products, experience etc. One lady is a gardener and she is learning how to put out information products about her field.
The Online Income Issue
There is a fundamental issue though with making money online. You need to know how to do it.
It doesn’t just happen. When doing anything online – you have to learn a few tricks to make things happen.
The knowledge you need gets labeled as Internet Marketing;
building mailing lists
social media promotion
etc etc and so on – always more to learn
Yes – Lots to learn – but great fun when you begin to see the action happening and income coming in.
All Great If You Have Products – But What if You Don’t?
Well – One of the best ways to make money online is to sell other peoples products.
NO that is not strictly TRUE — It is about pre-selling – but that is part of the training.
Affiliate programs are what you join and GUESS WHAT! I have one which I am inviting you to join. More about that below – but first of all some background knowledge – an inside look into my thinking.
[**PLEASE NOTE** I Have Moved Away From This BUT It Explains Why I Made Big Changes]
What we have at ‘Hypnosis for Download’ are well over 200 evergreen products to promote. They are audios and videos that are downloadable and sell worldwide – with immediate delivery.
Ideal evergreen products – great value and we have zero refunds. Digital for immediate Delivery – Good products, worldwide audience.
Now obviously I can advertise the website and sell the products myself – and I do – but my aim is much more ambitious than that.
I WANT to welcome some affiliates, BECAUSEpromotion by others is preferable and adds social proof.
My original approach to get affiliates seemed sensible but in reality I was wrong – and I realised I needed to change my approach.
What was my mistake?
I assumed that the best affiliates would be hypnotherapists as they would have the knowledge of the subject and would be able to pre-sell potential purchasers.
That may well be true – BUT what most of them didn’t have was the internet marketing training and knowledge. Most of them did not know how to attract traffic, build mailing lists and attract targeted potential clients via social media.
We had a couple of affiliates who made some money but I began to question whether the the affiliates needed to be hypnotherapists. Mmmmmmm !! ??
The most important thing is that new affiliates need to know all about the products AND have training.
Everything Was Evaluated Early This Year.
The conclusions were clear and can be summed up in this short list
The affiliate program software we had used was not great – find better
The problem with the promoting individual products in our store was too complicated – make the affiliate package simpler.
The internet was now very mobile and downloading of products was a nuisance – better to be streamed and deliverable to any internet connected device.
The affiliates on board needed more training – and I was not the best person to provide that – I was already a member of NAMS and I knew they were the team to work with.
The affiliates do not need to be hypnotherapists – as long as they have some access to the products and understand how to build lists and get traffic etc.
There was no commitment from many potential affiliates that joined and took NO ACTION – so get them to be paying members before offering them affiliate links.
So a new strategy was essential. It looked formidable AND it has been a lot of work- BUT IT IS NOW all in place and getting the message out there is now the task ahead for me.
I have an online income plan in place and I would like you to join me.
HERE IS MY LEARN FROM EXPERIENCE –
NEW ONLINE INCOME STRATEGY
THE STEPS and WHY
1. A Streaming Hypnosis Membership(Netflix type approach) The members have all of the audios and videos available to members. High Value because £1500 (and rising) worth of audios and videos available on all digital devices with wifi or telephone access anywhere in the world.
2. Simple Affiliate Programme and Recurring Monthly Income. The great advantage for affiliates is that a membership offers MONTHLY 50% payments.
[SECRET – just see what is on offer – you pay £7.50 to join – get your affiliate code and just ONE new member gets you £3.75 monthly. Introduce 2 Members and you have FREE Membership. Oh and of course Multiply that up for monthly income – you can do the maths.]
So what you may need training.
3. Training – I Strongly Recommend that You Join NAMS Membership. Above I was writing about NAMS marketing membership. You can be trained to be a great affiliate for my streaming hypnosis – but of course following David and Jen you will ALSO be able to promote many online products.
[SECRET – The same situation applies. As a NAMS Insider you will also get the opportunity to be an affiliate – and get 50% commission for new members – Two new members in and you have FREE training!]
4. Both Affiliate Programmes Are Only Available To Members. If you want to be a successful (and some affiliates are super successful) then you need to know and enjoy the product you are promoting. If you are a member you have every opportunity to use the product and speak about it from first hand knowledge. Your recommendations will be authentic and will ring true.
To put it bluntly ‘No BS’
Your Chance To Get Started Today By Checking Out Both Memberships
1. Hypnosis For Streaming – Three Days
What I have on offer to you right now is three days access to the Hypnosis For Streaming membership site. Free Access with no obligation. Please take a look and I will be available to you to answer any questions.

As I mentioned above I am a member of this group run by David and his daughter Jen. During the 14 Days you will be able to take in the amazing array of resources and training available in the membership area. The Integrity and
I am not suggesting for a moment that you get the internet market training just to promote our products. The fact is there are countless affilate projects and the training with David will help you acquire the skills.
Don’t forget – you can join and with your affiliate links find potential members (much as I am doing here) to get further income for yourself. Just two new members and you have your membership covered.
Having been around the scene for many years I can tell you that there is an abundance of poor internet training online. – I can put my hand on my heart and tell you that David and Jen offer the best training resources I have come across online.

I love the title of this blog post written by Sarah Ban
I Tried Hypnosis for Insomnia. Then My Skin Cleared Up. I don’t understand it, either, but I’m not complaining.
How often have I seen that.
So many people who have used hypnosis will say the same thing. “I don’t know how it worked – but it did.”
Adam Eason my hypnotherapist friend was amazed when he was treated for his psoriasis by a clinical hypnotherapist.
He was completely surprised by the effect on his skin as he had tried everything else prescribed.
That is in fact what led Adam to learn about hypnosis and start his hypnotherapy career.
Back to Sarah’s article…
The blog post by Sarah is well worth reading and she points out various studies and research in the field.
She finishes her blog post:
Whether or not I can explain how my skin got better, I’m pretty positive that my hypnosis sessions had something to do with it.
Whichever confounding variable was responsible for the clearer skin I saw after my hypnotherapy sessions (stress reduction, better sleep, placebo effect, or all of the above), I’m just thrilled to have seen results at all.
I was finally able to get my racing mind under control with the help of hypnosis. That meant I went from getting maybe two measly hours of sleep a night to a solid eight hours, which is a massive improvement for me. When I’m well-rested during the day, I’m more equipped to handle hectic situations, which means my stress levels are more under control, and I’m pretty sure that’s resulting in a newly clear complexion. My skin still breaks out when I’m frazzled, but it seems a lot happier overall. And so am I.
It is very easy to get wrong impressions about hypnosis. The showmen want to make it all look mystical and unreal.
I have videoed many courses where hypnotherapists were being trained. Many wonderful people with a real desire to help people with annoying behaviours, habits, addictions, pain, self-esteem and so on.
The problem for them especially in their early days is convincing many people out there who have very little knowledge about the therapy.
Ten years ago I was among those who knew very little about hypnosis.
Here are a few facts about hypnosis.
This is a difficult one for clinical hypnotherapists to deal with. The on stage guys are clever and use hypnosis and distraction techniques well.
The people selected to go on stage and take part are actually expecting an outcome. They are more prepared than they believe to respond and play the part.
The thing to realise is that they are willingly being led and are NOT really under the control of the hypnotist.
I personally love Derren Brown who actually calls himself a mentalist and illusionist. That is much better title although other people talk about him being a hypnotist. He often will show at the end of his performance how he has been misleading the audience. He will show video and you can see the clever language that is feeding the imaginations of those being manipulated.
Myths and Mystery and Bad Journalism
Oh dear I don’t know what to say about this one.
There are TV shows and humour “look into my eyes, look into my eyes” and all of that nonsense.
There are journalists who write for a living who are writing err … garbage!!
There are exceptions like Sarah Bar above who is giving a sensible researched article.
Firstly, the Telegraph, which you’d expect to have a more sober perspective on the story carries the headline: ‘Hypnotist thief puts shopkeeper in trance before robbing him’ The hypnosis article can be found here if you’d like to read it. Before I do anything else, let me address the fact that the Telegraph uses the word ‘Trance’ in the title of their article and then assumes that trance and hypnosis are the same thing. They are not.
Hypnotism Is Not A Hypnotist/Hypnotherapist Taking Control
The problem, of course, lies in the way hypnosis is presented again and again by the media, having to explain to clients over and over that hypnosis is something THEY do sometimes feel like a losing battle. Self-Hypnosis is a skill that can be learned by anyone. Yes it is a learned SKILL
To Take Control Issue Further – For My Christian Friends.
I wrote about this a long time ago in 2008 but I won’t send you to that post.
What I will do in fact is update that blog though as there are some new links to add.
Let Me Rant a Bit – Which Is Not My Usual Style …
(you will see that this post is rather sombre for me – but I so want you all to know more about the subject before criticising)
The usual thing is that people think they know about something without having ever studied the subject at all – they simply have an opinion based simply on intuition, gossip or whatever.
Several of my church friends have questioned my interest in what they describe as taking control of someones mind and over somebody’s thinking?
What? … WHAT?
I have videoed and sat through hundreds of hours of clinical hypnotherapy and cognitive bahavioural therapy training – AND it is NOT taking control of the clients mind.
If you think there is exasperation showing – you are right!
Let me bow out.
Really I am wise to leave this to somebody qualified to talk about it.
I am no fool.
Here is a YouTube video – well audio reallywith a ridiculously strange splash screen – about Hypnosis and Christianity. This is a video interview with Rev Dr Scot Giles. This is about his work using hypnosis with cancer patients.
The talk therapies offer help harmlessly. There is a lot of research about the effectiveness of many interventions – for example pain relief. The weakness is that there much more research needed.
So What About Psychiatry?
The very same people that object to hypnosis therapy WILL accept and endorse psychiatrists offering treatments and medication.
From my young nursing days back in the 60’s I had the horror of working with a team giving Electro-Convulsive Therapy (ECT). Notice my strong word horror. I could not believe what I was witnessing. I will say no more about that as it was a long time ago and I may exaggerate.
I was shocked (there’s a pun) when I found out recently that this therapy was in growing use again.
“The figures, obtained through freedom of information requests, show that despite being a crude, controversial treatment, which fell sharply out of favour around the turn of the millennium, ECT is enjoying a revival.
The procedure involves anaesthetising the patient and passing electricity through the brain to induce seizure. Despite ghoulish depictions in popular culture and a marked lack of science explaining how and why it works, treatments can prove effective. Patient stories range fromlife-changing benefits to tales of lives being ruined.”
Hypnotherapists are not wanting to get inside your head and control you. There intention is for their clients to learn the skills of focused imagination and suggesting to themselves the changes they want to make. That is my simple interpretation. Don’t let me tell you though. Better to learn directly from a hypnotherapy practitioner. I can put you in touch with the best.
What If Hypnotherapists Could Get To Control You?
I remember when I first met Adam, the guy who introduced me to hypnotherapy.
He was introducing his business in a breakfast BNI meeting. At each BNI meeting you were allowed 60 seconds to tell a story about your business. A bit like twitter really.
Adam was charismatic and I looked forward to his spot.
One of his minute stories was about hypnotherapists taking control of your mind.
Adam asked us “Why would I be standing up there at 7am to get some new business if I really could use magical hypnosis skills to control somebody? No! Surely I would simply make an appointment with my bank manager and get him to write me out a million pound cheque.
Of Course There Are So Many More Question – Another Day
There are so many other questions.
What does being hypnotised feel like?
Do I go to sleep?
Is it like being in the zone – like sportmen?
I really do want you to find out. So more to follow.
Here I am running two days late with my April blogging challenge.
I won’t go into excuse mode, enough to say yesterday and the day before were those sort of days. Should have stayed in bed.
Anyway – troubles sorted and back on track
I just have to CATCH UP.
It was MY decision to take the challenge. It was by choice and I am doing as much as I can to learn from the process and get my list building through blogging well under way. I want to do this and recognise the advantages.
Also My Son Tom Has A Challenge.
Also my son has been training for the London Marathon which is on 22nd April.
Tom is used to physical activity, surfing and climbing – but running is new and a challenge.
He signed up via a Stroke Charity which puts the pressure on.
He has had to train hard and has followed the regime suggested by the marathon organisers. He ran 22 miles last Sunday. The weather was not good and it would have been easy to let that one slip.
I have to be honest he has not really enjoyed the process – but the challenge and reward of raising the money has worked. I don’t think that he will choose to do it again.l But he will do this one and is aiming to do it in less than four hours.
Let’s Look At Motivation And What Is Going On.
There are three things going on when you undertake a project/challenge.
Activation – the decision to do something
Intensity – the amount of effort that goes into doing it.
Perseverance – How long you can keep up the effort
Achieving your goal requires all of the above.
Types of Motivation:
Arises inside of you. Like solving a puzzle just because you want to. YES – want to
Pros – Easy to maintain concentration. Will do it regardless of reward
Cons Can easily be subject to moods.
Comes from outside – eg solving a problem for money, recognition or praise from peers.
Pros – Easy to manufacture using rewards. Makes difficult tasks bearable.
Cons – Prone to procrastination.
How to Find Motivation
If ONLY it was possible for us to enjoy doing everything with intrinsic motivation.
Unfortunately tasks such as paperwork, chores and study often need willpower and rewards to get done.
If you’re feeling apathetic or keep procrastinating on a task, get MOTIVATED byeliminating the excuses.
Dreams get you started, discipline keeps you going . Jim Rohn
How to get motivated
This stops you from the first step of motivation – starting an activity
1. You’re afraid of Failure
It’s a matter of perspective.
HOW TO FIX IT
Look at all the possible outcomes, including worst-case scenario.
If you fail, will it be really that bad?
If you don’t do the task, what will happen?
Think of the consequences.
This negative outcome should jumpstart you into getting motivated.
2. It’s Too Boring
If you lack the energy to do a task, you’re likely to use your motivation to indulge in something else – like watching TV
HOW TO FIX IT
Focus on the task instead of the time.
By looking at what you need to do, instead of how long it’ll take you, you’ll become more stimulated. With this approach, time should fly as you finish off the activity.
If this isn’t enough, track your progress towards a goal.
Focus on whatever is the smaller of the two: how much you’ve done against how much you have to do.
3. You Just Don’t Feel Like It.
Are you weighed down by an immense feeling of laziness? Then it is time to get organised.
HOW TO FIX IT
You can’t plan your moods, but you can plan your day.
Think about when you are most productive. If it’s early morning or late in the afternoon, then organize your day around this.
If you’re still feeling lazy, try the count down from 10, and start. Once you’re in the zone, you’re more likely to get things done.
4. You Are Too Tired
If you’re struggling to stay awake, then it will be impossible to be motivated.
HOW TO FIX IT
Take care of yourself physically as well as mentally.
Are you stressed out?
Take time to meditate and exercise.
How are your eating and sleeping patterns?
Don’t skip on meals or pull any all-nighters.
Listen to your body, and if you’re still fatigued, visit your doctor
Please feel free to contact me. Simply drop me an email and I will send you a Relaxation and Melt Stress self-hypnosis audio.
5. You Don’t Know Where To Start
Decision fatique affects everyone. The number of choices you make in a day is inversely related to your mental energy.
HOW TO FIX IT
Create A To Do List
Getting started can be the hardest part, but if you can see what needs doing from the get go, you’re onto a good start.
Include not only what you have to do, but what choices you have to make. It’ll help you get your priorities in order and help you manage your brainpower usage.
6. You Have Too Much To Do
How can you put effort into something when you have so many other things to do?
HOW TO FIX IT
Get rid of any unnecessary commitments.
Every commitment you make uses up your finite willpower. Learn to say ‘no’ to things and simply focus on what’s truly important in life.

Feel good about the small successes.
