A recipe for Wealthy Thinking

A recipe for wealthy thinking Jonathan Chase Hypnotist

I was once called the gordon Ramsay of Personal Development and Hypnosis, which is great for me because Gordon Ramsay is something of a hero of mine.

We have a great deal in common – well stretch your imagination. Thanks to physical injury he couldn’t carry on playing professional football so got up and got on as a professional chef.

True I was never a professional footballer, in fact at school I sucked at sports even though I loved kicking a football about.

I was a clumsy kid though and was never picked for teams, you know that kid that always gets left until last. I can’t say I was bullied,  but always being left till last made me feel different, not always in a good way.

One Day changed everything

Then one day I won a competition from my weekly comic, the prize was… A leather bound football, a proper football. Oh joy of joys.

The football was a coveted item and *I* had it, it was mine.

Then everyone wanted to play with MY ball and be on MY team. I became the picker!

There was LESSON No 1 -The Picker has ALL the power, you’re the team Manager, you pick the players, you don’t get left behind.

If you can’t be the Player then be the best Manager or Chef or Edutainer you can be.

The role of a chef and the role of an Edutainer showing people how to change their mindsets and attitudes isn’t all that different in principal.

You take the few ingredients the store of life has delivered to your subconscious larder. You figure out how best to use the utensils and equipment your body has kicking around, and these can be very different, and bring the lot together to produce not only sustenance but a satisfying and fulfilling repast.

And just like a wedding breakfast or Sunday lunch, this creates an experience and it’s the experience we remember.

Wealth is also like a meal, it isn’t just the one ingredient snack many people are taught it is.

Wealth is a full on banquet.

Sure the most important base is generous helping of crisp and fresh lightly tossed cash, but that is just the bed to lay the more delicate and delicious portions of the wealth recipe.  

True wealth must also include two or three table spoons of enjoyable shared pastimes.

Several thickly sliced satisfying acts of selfless charity complement the heady and filling chunk of indulgent pleasure. The trick here of course is balancing the earthiness with something more graceful.

But the thing that pulls all this together to take the whole thing from a mishmash of bits and pieces is the thinking that produces the sauce.

A bad sauce however can spoil the experience and flavour of being wealthy and leave a bitter taste which is where sadly most people live.

Remember the first lesson? Don’t let bad experiences sour your sauce!

Wealthy Thinking

To think wealthy requires a good dash of realisation that rich people are not evil and wanting, and getting stuff isn’t bad wine.

I know that particular belief wine is strong, and your up-dragging people told you it was wrong to drink it, but you’re not drinking it, you are heating it and reducing it down to get the flavour without the alcoholic guilt which is steamed off.

Next you add some finely chopped generosity…

…and the zest of time shared with the people you are teaching and touching. To get and give the value you need stir slowly.

And now the pudding.

To be wealthy…

…you have to produce something, even if that is some more wealth. And when you produce something you are pouring the rich and sweet custard of Experience into the bowl of people who surround you, support you and enjoy the fruits of your labour.

So take the following,

  • Effort
  • Knowledge
  • Generosity
  • Time
  • Pleasure
  • Experience

Mix liberally, garnish with a pinch of gratitude and savour…

If you need some Wealthy Thinking to get past your sticking points and Up Your Game, at whatever you do, to stop being left behind, then think what I might be able to do for you on a Quick Consult. No messing about for months, just rapid effective creative skills creation.

10 FAQs as to why you should take our
MindSTYLE app Psychometric strength and stress assessment

Q: What is a Subconscious Strengths and Stress psychometric Testing about?

A: Psychometric Testing with the MindSTYLE app is a set of questions that are designed to discover your natural Subconscious behaviours which are most likely to give you the biggest result and reward. Creating success with less stress by being excited and productive in Your Comfort Zone.

Q: What do you mean by ‘Natural’ behaviours?

A: Some behavioural patterns are innate, in other words you are born with them, they are your nature and the things you are most likely to do when not doing anything in particular or when you are enjoying yourself the most.

Q: Are we a blank slate and as humans we learn everything?

A: No, your emotions and how you are inclined to behave are not learnt, they are hardwired, just like your sexual inclination and the shape of your nose.

Q: Isn’t a Comfort Zone a place of safety where we get stuck and need to move on?

A: No, people who need to move on are far from comfortable, your true Comfort Zone is the place where  feel most joyous, excited and engaged.

Q: Don’t I have to leave my comfort zone and go through anxiety to learn and grow?

A: No. You learn most at play when doing the things that give you Dopamine, endorphins and creating a feels good state in the brain. Think about it, the kids who do best at school Like school.

Q: How good is the Mind STYLE Profiling?

A: Very, the Subconscious strengths and stress points psychometric profiling is designed to engage the subconscious and the result is around 90% in discovering your strongest likely behaviours.

Q: What does knowing my MindSTYLE do for me?

A: It shows you the best way to do things. Not what to do but how to apply your nature to start and get the most momentum for any task.

Q: Don’t I apply my natural behaviours anyway?

A: Not always. We often do things the way we are taught even when that feels uncomfortable. You default to your natural and strongest behaviours when you are doing the things you want to, the way you want to do them.

Q: So what happens when I am in my Comfort Zone?

A: When you are comfortable you connect with your limbic system, the decision making, sensory and emotive part of your brain. That’s when things like Tiger Woods unorthodox swing, or Einstein’s maverick thinking occur.

Q: Is the Mind STYLE Profiling psychometric testing?

A: The MindSTYLE app is designed to measure your innate subconscious emotive tendencies and talents. and as these are basically the psychology of how you are inclined to do stuff this model does fit into the field of psychometrics, even though it is way shorter, faster and so we are told by the people who have tried it, one of the most accurate systems for strengths and stress points out there.

Unleashing the Power of the 9yr old Within

Unleashing the power of the 9yr old within Jonathan Chase the hypnotist

Unleashing the Power of the 9 yr old within

Imagine a human being was a car…

In this case it’s being driven by Peter, it could be being driven by Petunia or Pauline but in this case it’s Peter.

The car is pointed where Peter wants to go and he has learnt the skills to drive it there.

Peter is the conscious brain, and is mature enough to understand that there’s social rules, and he’s had enough experience to know how far to bend those and not get into trouble or to cause a smash or a crash.

The car is pretty much where Peter wants it to be on the road surrounded by slower, faster, bigger and smaller vehicles, and it’s a not too expensive, not too cheap car, that doesn’t do too much damage to the world, or to Peter’s pocket, and it can go faster if he chooses.

Peter knows where his car is pointed.

He’s not absolutely positive what will be there when he gets there, but he’s checked the internet site and brochures. He’s spoken to a few people who’ve been there, admittedly a few years ago and for varying reasons from different directions, however, he’s got a pretty good idea that the trip will be worth it, and, according to google maps, without too many holdups or diversions.

If you were passing Peter and glanced across you’d see a pretty much peaceful and passive Peter


Peter’s car has back seats.

In one of those back seats, behind Peter’s, behind the privacy glass, which is why you didn’t see the nose thumbing, tongue out, sits Paul.

Meet Your Subconscious

Paul or Penny or Pat, but in this case Paul, is somewhere between 9 and 10 years old.

Paul may want to go where Peter’s going because he likes the car, sometimes.

He really likes it when he’s allowed to sit in the front seat next to Peter pressing buttons and turning the radio up – or down, or on to his favourite shows, and opening the window and twiddling with…

But mostly, he’s in the back seat.

Now unlike the radio Paul didn’t come with a volume control or off switch.

Paul did however come with loads of attention getting skills designed to help Paul get what Paul wants and needs.

Sometimes those give Peter what he wants and needs, and then everything is perfect, and a lot of the time… it’s not really.

Are We There Yet?

Paul doesn’t really see where the car is pointed, even when he’s in the front because he isn’t looking forwards or backwards.

Paul is pointed at a place Paul imagines is the place he wants to be, and Paul doesn’t get why he isn’t ‘there yet’.

“Are we there yet?” is Paul’s main mantra and, ‘are we there yet?’, is often punctuated by, “Will there be ice-cream? I want ice-cream! Is that a rabbit? Can we play Eye-Spy? I need a pee… Can we have a rabbit? Will there be ice-cream? I think I feel sick… Are we there yet?” 

And unfortunately the back-seat isn’t soundproofed or in a different parallel universe so Peter is always aware of Paul no matter what.

And, sooner or later Peter will stop to buy ice-cream, play eye-spy, buy a rabbit or take that short cut or put the pedal to the metal to get there faster; even though Peter knows if he gets caught he’ll end up with points on his licence and a longer trip overall. . . or even worse…

A Process That Affects All Our Decisions

Inside all of us there is a ‘Paul’ process that affects all of our decisions and dictates most of our responses, relationships, reactions, beliefs and behaviours.

It’s emotional, playful, imaginative, and the basis of our personality and the home of our natural talents, tendencies, traits and tastes.

Probably based around our oldest paleo-mammalian brain the limbic system, what some people call a monkey brain or even way more off the truth, the reptilian brain, it’s pretty much set up by the time we hit pre-puberty around 9 years six months old.

And although, like any 9 year old, it can be influenced, it isn’t going to do anything we want it to, if we try to force it.

We call this process, or entity if you prefer, our Mind or Subconscious.

The 9 yr old Inside

It really is who we are, and why we are us.

The world is protected from it most of the time because our social, logical, reasonable and constantly maturing cerebral cortex brain, our conscious, is a little like an adult driving a car.

And just like the adult and child, the brain’s main job is to direct and drive while at the same time trying to tell the child why it’s not there yet, and to be quiet please, and to explain to the world why that didn’t work. . .

Emilé Coué, author of the line, ‘every day and every way I’m getting better and better’, called them the Imagination (child), and Intellect (adult), and in his 1921 short and insightful book on how to master the subconscious he said, “If there’s a conflict between the imagination and intellect, the imagination always wins.”

Anyone who’s ever been a parent of a bright 9-year-old, knows that the pre-pubescent child is pretty much why they do what they do and the child usually wins.

Oh yes they do – go on – be honest.

Your subconscious has built-in skills…

…to get what it wants. Survival and communication skills that go beyond and before mere logical language, they are hard-wired in at birth.

The child will execute natural techniques to wheedle the ice-cream, and its happiness expressed in chemicals like dopamine and endorphins, noradrenaline, serotonin, is the adults reward, even if it makes the kid explode.

Maturing and growing up, learning to drive, overrides those simple skills with more complex social rules and regulations, so you forget how to just get what you want and need, and we also forget how to just give what others want and need. 

Of course, your subconscious skills are still there, and when you let Paul in the front seat, and this time make everything a game and allow Paul to press the right buttons and twiddle the best knobs, then the results are the best rewards.

Brain – Mind

Obviously that’s a metaphor to explain the relationship with the conscious and subconscious process.

Actually the subconscious – and this is lay science so if you’re a neurologist you’ll have to forgive me – is a collection of thought processes. A web of response and reaction and recall mechanisms in our brain we can better think of as our minds.

Obviously if we look at it purely bio-mechanically then one thought looks pretty much like any other. All processes appear the same. Love, hate, anger, fear, lust, are all just chemical and electrical connections between cells.

I think it’s a useful model to think of the conscious and subconscious as the Brain and the Mind and when we do that we get this…


The Conscious organised organ used to think with. It is logical and serious and matures with age. Is reality based Organic organ.


The Subconscious. The process of thinking which is creative, emotive, illogical and often childlike in its simplicity. It may be a separate entity or the produce of a functioning cognitive system. Decides and judges from an internalised perception of reality.

Emile Coué, author of the mantra-like conscious autosuggestion, “Every day, in every way, I’m getting better and better”, called them the Intellect and the Imagination, and went on to make the observation that when in conflict, the Imagination always wins.

He wasn’t wrong.

How do you catch a liar?


The Hypnotist shows you How To Catch A Liar

Eye accessing cues in NLP and micro expression and body language are supposed to be able to tell you how people are processing their thoughts.

As the Hypnotist I’ve experimented a lot with this and with what magicians call cold reading, here’s a fast way to catch a liar.

Actually Derren Brown blows the old eye accessing clues apart in his first book. It’s largely unproven rubbish. However what he gives you in place is worth gold. And I’m paraphrasing here.

‘What you need to watch for is Their Pattern’

So how do we set up a human lie detector without using hypnosis or NLP, with just simple observation? Read more How do you catch a liar?
