Something For Everyone – Entertainment And Answers

How much fun would it be to go on a magical journey into the imagination?  You could go jet skiing under a warm tropical sun or be the greatest singer who ever lived.  For that matter, you could find yourself feeling your most confident self and removing barriers to your success.  This is what is waiting for you during one of my shows or presentations.

Now for some answers…

When people hear I am a hypnotist, one of the first things they will say is, “I’ve tried to get hypnotized and it didn’t work.  I guess I can’t hypnotized.” 

Not true, everyone has the natural ability to be hypnotized.  It is simply a matter of focus.  Whenever you focus on something to the point where is causes you to change how you feel, you have experienced hypnosis.  This is the same as going to a movie and letting the experience unfold to it’s amazing conclusion (think of the thrill ride in movies like Avengers Endgame or Star Wars: The Last Jedi). It is your focus which takes you there.  Of course, if you don’t like a certain type of movie, you are certainly not going to get into it or focus on it.

Or how about… “I wouldn’t want to be hypnotized because I don’t like to be out of control.”

This one is also not true.  All hypnosis is self hypnosis and the hypnotist is but a guide.  Anyone being hypnotized could “wake up” and walk off the stage if they wanted to.  The state of hypnosis is also a state of awareness, therefore, if the hypnotist asked you to do something which you did not want to do, you could just say “No”.  The person being hypnotized is the one who is in control here.

Build Your School Up With This Presentation

JR Matthew has been a stage hypnotist for almost 20 years as well as being hypnotherapist and speaker.

His training and years of experience have lead to the creation this empowering presentation for both schools and businesses. 

This presentation is built on the concept that our thoughts become things.  Everything around us started off as a thought and then was brought into being through action.  

What we think about everyday shapes how we feel about ourselves.  If you feel bad about yourself then you will act accordingly. 

What if you were shown a way to change this?  Then you would have the power to change

School Is Getting Underway & So Are Motivational Presentations

We become what we think of ever day.  The question becomes what are we thinking about?  Are our thoughts building us up or tearing us down?

School presentations focus on self image, how it develops and how it affects how we feel about ourselves.  Students can have fun with hypnosis demonstration and learning creative visualization techniques for personal empowerment.

BEEP! What’s Coming UP

As you know, I love to help out.  I help my clients with therapy and health coaching, organizations and groups with entertainment; even radio stations like Country 95 5 in Lethbridge with announcing. It’s just for the next little while waiting for the return of their main morning show guy Brooksie.

Gillian and I have some interesting calls in the morning.  Just had to share this one on relationship advice for one of her friends.  For more fun join us from 6 – 9 am weekdays on Country 95.

Even though I’m helping out with the morning show, I am still out and about later in the day doing hypnosis shows and presentations.  I had a great time entertaining for the Raymond High Dry Grad 2019 Event.

Here’s a review of how it went – GREAT!!!

More fun this weekend with a show in Fort Macleod at the Legions Saturday May 25 – 8pm

Then in Lethbridge for the ASLC on Sunday May 26 and workshops at Chinook High School on Monday May 27th.

Helping Out

As a therapist and speaker, I get called upon to not only speak at events, but also to develop special programs for clients and consult on various work place behavioural challenges.  I’ve even been presented with opportunities to help redesign systems so that the people who use them can do so more easily.  The common theme here is simply helping out.

With grad season upon me and the end of the school year coming to an end, I have been presented with another opportunity to help out.  This time it’s to do something I have not done professionally for many years – work in radio.  I am now helping out a Lethbridge radio station by co-hosting their morning show while they wait for the return of their main host.

It is always an honour to be asked to help out and even more of one for people to have the faith in my abilities to help get the job done.  The best part here?  I am doing what I love to do and having so much fun doing it.

The lesson here?

Do what you love to do! Have fun doing it and life will be great!

You can catch me along my co-host Gillian weekday mornings from 6 – 9 on Country 95.5 FM. Listen online here.



Fun With The Power Of Suggestion

It is such a great honour to be able to entertain and inspire.  I love being able to welcome people into a show which is both as much fun to be in as it is to watch.  For this reason I keep my show fun, inspiring and PG.  People can look forward to having a great laugh and the opportunity to be a part of an amazing hypnotic experience.

Even something as simple as a giggle button can prove to be very entertaining.

Be sure to catch me at Lucky Charlie’s in Swift Current, SK this Friday night (March 22), then watch for me by Fort Whoop Up as I keep the runners in the Moonlight Run in Lethbridge.

Next week in back Saskatchewan for more high school self esteem presentations.

Reviews Of School Self Esteem Presentations

We become what we think of everyday.  It is always a pleasure to be able to share insights into our self esteem and how we can build it up.  When we feel better about ourselves, the goals we set and achieve are amazing.

Here are a few more reviews on my high school self esteem presentations.

Hypnotist livening things up at bash

Entertainment: Act, cover band entertaining at Black Diamond Hotel Feb. 23

Partygoers heading to Rock-A-Billy Entertainment’s upcoming bash can expect to go on a wild journey in Black Diamond this weekend.

Lethbridge hypnotist J.R. Matthew aims to get the Black Diamond Hotel buzzing with activity using the power of suggestion before Calgary party band Liquid Rhythm gets the dance floor filled Feb. 23 starting at 7:30 p.m.

“I will take them on a really wild journey winning the lottery or a four-by-four truck and jet skiing in Jamaica and chasing aliens around or becoming the world’s most confident supermodel and putting their strut on around the room,” said Matthew last week. “They will remember everything they’ve done. Then they get to spend the rest of the evening talking about it.”

The certified clinical hypnotherapist and health coach said he’s not a typical hypnotist.

“I take the stage and I explain a little bit about hypnosis, about what I do and I address fears that people have with regards to getting hypnotized,” he said. “Hypnosis is suggestion and influence. My message to people is we’re getting these suggestions all the time. I start leading people in this pathway of how to focus and get into that hypnotic mind state.”

Matthew has developed several entertaining hypnosis actions over the years. He said he often gets the feel of the room before deciding what to do.

“Until I get into the room I really have no set-in-stone plan on what I’m going to do,” he said. “The energy of the room and the people I talk to before I go into the show really determines what fun we’re going to have.”

The show is both entertaining and inspirational, said Matthew, and leads people with the message that they can trust themselves to have an enjoyable experience.

“For me, what I found in my almost 20 years of being a hypnotist is the most successful candidates for hypnotists are those people who intuitively trust themselves,” he said. “I teach people how to focus and work their minds.”
