Hypnotist JR Matthew – Fun with Giggle Buttons and Names

One of my favourite hypnosis skits to start my show with… giggle buttons and the name of an imaginary creature – Pikachu!

There really is nothing like hearing the laughter from the audience within moments of taking the stage.

Welcome 2020 And The Opportunities You Bring

As we get into the New Year, it’s time to get working on those goals you’ve been talking about and have maybe even written down. 

The key to your success will be… YOU!  YOU and your plan. 

What is it?  As you read this do you know what it is?  Have you got a clear vision of it?  You can’t get there if you don’t know what it is and what it will mean to you once you achieve it.

Allow me to share mine and maybe it will help you gain clarity:

My personal goal is to continue on my fitness journey.  I’m already working out 5 to 6 days a week and eating lean.  I weigh 210 pounds and am working towards a trimmer waste line and stronger body.  My goal weight is 200 lbs, however, if my weight stays at 210 and my lean body mass goes up, I’m happy with that too.  I know I don’t have all the answers to the challenges that may arise so I will be sure to check my ego at the proverbial door and ask for help from those in the know. 

The reason I’m doing this is for my own good.  I like being able move, walk, run, swim for long periods of time and I love the energy I feel being in better shape. I also know that I am worth it and deserving of it (I hope you feel this way about yourself too).

Professionally, it’s important to look like I care about myself and I practice what I preach.  It also takes a lot of energy to do the kind of shows and presentations I do and I may do 3 or 4 a day..  Being in shape is a must!

I also have a goal to double the number of school presentations in 2020 over 2019.  You will have to check back in to see how I do.  I can’t see a reason why I shouldn’t be able to.  Ask yourself the same about your goals.

So… it will mean more of these…

The Hypnotist Near You In Lethbridge And Area

Hi, I’m Hypnotist JR Matthew and I am the hypnotist near you in Lethbridge and area

It is a very common thing to be a performer and find success in markets other than where you live.  For me, it seems that BC and SK are the provinces where I do most of my speaking and shows.  It’s funny doing shows in Lethbridge and people come up to me to shake my hand and compliment me on my show.  They then ask where I am from and I say, “Here.”  Their response is funny as they say they didn’t know there were any hypnotists in Lethbridge.

Now, maybe I have spent too much time on the road or maybe in the office.  However, I did just finish off six months of hosting the morning show on a local radio station (Today’s Country 95 5) and had a ton of fun doing it.  Did it make a difference?  I haven’t noticed an increase in local business yet.  That said, I did get a lot recognition as part of #JRandGillianinthemorning.

The big issue is people not connecting that JR with the Hypnotist JR.

I find it funny how, even with all of the social media and promotion and such there is still that disconnect here.

I think there are some other things to keep in mind:

Sometimes in medium sized cities (Lethbridge for example), people think that to get great entertainment, they have to look for someone from outside of their community.  It’s that hometown syndrome (we know this guy, he’s local…who do you know from Calgary). It’s almost like being a celebrity outside of your area, selling out shows, packing in rooms and doing what you love to do.  However, when you do a public show in your home town you can hardly sell any tickets.  Go figure. 

Time to work on changing this.  I hope you can help.

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.
