If a Conspiracy Theorist Falls in a Forest and No One is Around To Hear It...Doesn't That Seem Awfully Convenient? with Author and Pastor John Kirwin
Mandela effects, Flat Earth, Big Pharma, The Federal Reserve, The Moon Landing.....
Do you think it's still okay to question the official narratives?
Pastor and Author of "The Conspiracy Theorist Survival Guide - A Guidebook for Persecuted Truthers" John Kirwin is here to stand up for you, as well as debate all the mainstream defenders.
He joins Greg to discuss his journey to distrust, as well as the role of faith versus fact when it comes to looking for alternative explanations for the way things actually work in this world.
This is a conspiracy theorist Olympics. When Greg fed the transcript of this episode to ChatGPT, he was honored a gold medal for content policy violations and he's never been more proud.
John even runs Greg through his proof for the Mandela Effect (everything you thought you knew about it is about to blow up like a CIA inside job!)
It's philosophical, it's inflammatory, it's thought-provoking, it's epistemological, and above all else... it's Open Loops.

Is that not the ultimate trance word? Where does it take your mind? Or where outside of it does it take you?......maaaaaaaannnnnnn.
Get ready to join an enlightening exploration of the realm of psychedelics and their potential for transformative healing. Greg's guest, Jess Marion, a highly skilled hypnotherapist, coach, and NLP master practitioner, shares her remarkable journey into sacred medicine, her understanding of neuroscience, and how her approach to coaching and transformation has evolved over the years. You will discover how psychedelics have bridged the gaps that hypnosis, meditation, yoga, and tai chi were unable to fill for Jess, influencing her coaching methods in powerful ways.
As you continue your journey, Jess offers insights into the world of psychedelic healing. They discuss the classifications of psychedelics, how they affect the brain, and the intriguing commonalities behind the visions they induce. You'll hear about the importance of set and setting when embarking on a psychedelic journey, the potential risks, and the small minority of people who should avoid these substances.

Trancing, Fast and Slow: Neuroscientific Hypnosis and the Psychotropic Metaphor with Master Hypnotist, Author, and NLP Trainer Jess Marion
Journey with Greg to the insights of esteemed hypnotist, coach, teacher, healer, Sacred Medicine Practitioner, and NLP and HNLP Maestro, Jess Marion. Picture yourself stepping into the realm of storytelling, intricately woven narratives, and the transformative potential of hypnosis.
As your guide, Jess, paints a vivid scene, you can perceive your brain akin to an eager audience, naturally receptive to stories. These tales are not just stories, they're vessels carrying ideas, subtly reshaping your experiences and subtly demonstrating perspectives you hadn't considered before.
In this realm, you'll stumble upon nested loops, a fascinating technique reminiscent of Russian dolls. Story within story, each loop is like a path leading you further into a captivating narrative landscape, a unique kind of maze designed to foster unconscious rapport and a sense of linguistic intrigue that stirs your intellect.
At this point, you may find yourself recalling an old tale, perhaps one told by your grandmother, where one narrative seamlessly cascades into another. Isn't it fascinating how similar this is to exploring the ethics of hypnosis? The focus is on the delicate balance between suggestion and your commitment. You can almost hear the city's hustle and bustle, a backdrop that served as Jess's training ground, where she fine-tuned her skills in the midst of urban chaos.
As you navigate this narrative labyrinth, imagine yourself stepping into an enigmatic room filled with the mystique of Rasputin. Jess unravels her own experience of channeling him, a tale that engrosses you and underscores the intricate dance between your conscious and unconscious mind.
You soon find yourself at a thought-provoking crossroad where hypnosis meets mysticism. Jess, like a trusted guide, shares her insights on hypnosis's potential to mirror a psychedelic journey, but without any substances involved. Intriguing, isn't it?
Continuing this winding path, neuroscience appears on the horizon, its metaphors serving as lighthouses illuminating the complex terrain of your unconscious and super-conscious mind.
As this enlightening conversation winds down, you find yourself back where you started, at the entrance of the narrative labyrinth. Just like a skilled hypnotist bridging conscious states, you've embarked on a journey through a maze of stories and ideas, discovering the transformative potential of hypnosis. By stepping into this intricate dance of narratives, you uncover a deeper understanding of the vast capabilities of your own mind.
"There's no such thing as hypnosis. Everything is hypnosis."
AN OPEN LOOPS CLASSIC: The “Florida Man” Episode with UFO Abductee, LSD Psychonaut, and Past Lives Journeyman Robert Emerson
UFOS. In honor of all the UFO hearings, here's one of Greg's first encounters with UFOs on his show. The answers from the government are even vaguer now then they were then! How far we've all come.
Ah, yes. Robert Emerson has been hypnotizing people to get in touch with their past lives for over forty years.
And he casually was abducted by aliens.
This episode is an intergalactic head trip that ranges from regular sightings of Flying Saucers in Middleton, Massachusetts to embodying the spirit of deceased Nubian Princesses.
All within the span of five minutes.
And did this guest tell Greg if he's bad-intentioned and and fails to come from heart-consciousness with his podcast he just might get a whoopin'?
You should listen to this because just by the fact that you are listening, Robert will get you in touch with your spirit guides.
He might smack Greg, too.
Greg, your my new favorite! Thanks for keeping an open mind, open heart and free spirit and sharing all of this exciting information! I look forward to listening to your shows! Please keep making them! Your the best!!!
This is one of the best podcasts if you interested in seeing the “other side” of reality. You don’t necessarily have to believe it all, but the host brings in guests and let’s them speak and he always asks those burning questions that you want to know. He does it with an open mind and heart allowing the listener draw their own conclusions. I appreciate this platform, it’s so open and inviting and I love listening and always look forward to the next show! Great podcast!
