Feeling Grateful – But Differently

Feeling Grateful – But Differently

The act of gratitude does remarkable things. Some sell gratitude diaries or journals, which are pretty good, but if you want to practice feeling grateful you can do it right now or at any time without any writing whatsoever.

And the one really good thing that it does is make you feel kinda wonderful and you can’t be anxious when you feel that.

Here’s a short video I recorded to go with my podcast episode of the same name.

Dealing with Anxiety and Fear – Right Here Right Now – I’m Safe

Dealing with Anxiety and Fear

Right Here Right Now – I’m Safe

Past events and memories can and do evoke negative emotions such as anger, fear, hurt, and guilt – you fill in the blank along with their associated limiting beliefs. And we continue to feel them long after they have finished.

We get anxious, worry, panic – you fill in the blank thinking of things that might happen in the future and play wonderous movies in our head of all the bad things that might happen.


They are all in your head. The past is gone, finished, it’s over and the future hasn’t happened which all means tight here, right now those negative emotions, beliefs, and internal movies are all of your own making because right here, right now you are safe.

In this episode, we’ll look into how to change this by choosing a safer way to be because all these other ways are no longer appropriate. Getting your unconscious mind to find and access ways to keep you safe and deal with all that Negative ‘STUFF’.

Please come with me on this dive down the rabbit hole and see, hear, and feel in creating the life that makes you feel good  YAY!  :O)

How Long Does Hypnotherapy Take?

Months of Therapy – Really??

I believe therapy should be quick, easy, and comfortable and I have witnessed so many times I think I’m right. Even if I wasn’t, and I am, it’s the best belief a therapist can have along with ‘my client can do this!’

So what follows is a little Cloughie rant and then suggestions on how therapy can be quick, easy, and comfortable.

I guess this rant happens once or twice a year when I hear people, some may call influencers and aren’t we all, say things that don’t help anyone suffering and in need of help.

Let me know your thoughts and please share and guide others who need help

A Muse on Hypnosis in audio – Sit back and press play

A Muse on Hypnosis

Why do I love hypnosis?

Why or what do I think hypnosis is so important and what it does, can do?

I’m often asked why I learned hypnosis and the real truth. I did it for every other reason than helping others – it was all about me and a way into NLP.

That all changed within about 2 hours of the first day of my first training, but that’s another story for another day.

You see if you don’t consciously choose to run your issue and those emotions, negative and positive what does? -Your unconscious mind, your best friend, and where best to go to make changes? Your unconscious mind, your best friend.

A five-minute muse, a conversation, to hopefully get you to think and maybe want to learn more about hypnosis and Your Unconscious mind – Your Best Friend.

To find out how it, I, can help you and your issue the best thing to do is contact us by the ‘Contact Form’ and arrange an initial consultation – It’s complimentary and literally only lasts 20 minutes where you can make a considered decision if Hypnotherapy is for you.

To Share is to care:

Never Regret NOT Doing Anything Again

Time for a muse and a little bit of a teaser toward a longer episode in a couple of days’ time.

Creating a Quiet Place

Creating a Quiet Place

A place away from the noise

There’s so much noise in the world and in my podcast (The Personal Development Unplugged podcast) I wanted to share a  quiet place that I used to have and how I can go back there. Or if you want one you can create one of your own.


For those who would like to read the podcast here is a transcript of the audio. If you are someone who gets a little touchy about grammar you are going to have to work hard not showing it   :O)

Hey, welcome to this special five-minute quickie special in a way that it’s experiential. I want you to experience my quiet place and maybe allow it to be your quiet place, or develop one of your own. So you can de-stress, just let go, let go of anxiety and overwhelm. And just for a few moments, recharge, come back to your center, and stillness. So just remember, if there’s anything that needs your attention, please listen to this another time. Because this is going to entail you to use your imagination and go inside. When you’re ready, please enjoy after this

Friends, I just want to use your Imagineering for a moment if you would. So this might be something you could do while you’re walking along. But not certainly not driving. Or anything that really needs your attention because I just want you to go inside for a bit. So maybe just standing still, sitting down, having a listen maybe on your commute on the tube on the subway, wherever it is.

I just wanted you to imagine this, that you could leave a busy place. Wherever you’re at. And it’s a bit, a bit busy, just a bit busy. And you could just leave it and you could walk down a very small path. And as you turn the corner you can see just over there just beyond that little stretch of grass, an old shed. And beside that old shed is like a lovely lean-to, open to the elements. But sort of open because it has a lovely little roof. It’s got some nice little wooden supports there. It’s got a vine thing going on as like a vine growing up and intertwining with the roof.

And there’s a table nice table just a couple of chairs. You can see them over there. And you decide that you’re going to walk over that small stretch of grass to that table. And you can see as you go across that grass, there’s like a pathway that’s been trodden before from before just not by you, but by other people.

And you make your way across that grass. And you go and sit at that table. And as you sit at that table, you look around. You can see on the table, there’s like an old candle been used before, but it’s just a nice old candle. And there’s a little Buddha, a little statue of Buddha there. And it’s not there for buddhist reasons. It’s just because it makes things feel nice and peaceful.

And you can just sit and look, there’s a place for a cup of coffee if you want coffee. There’s a place where you could have had a glass of wine if it was a bit later. And there’s a place where you could put your journal if you had a journal you can just sit here and you just look to the corner over there. Not too far away. And there’s a nice like it’s a big barrel like cut in half but in that barrel, it’s full of water and there are plants growing in the water. And every now and again. You see a little frog, just his eyes coming above the surface and beside that there’s a bench where if you wanted to, you go and sit and just muse, muse to your heart’s content, maybe it’s a place where you would speak with other people.

Maybe it’s a place where you’d speak with other people in your mind. To have a conversation with them to understand things differently. And knowing that this is protected from the elements, you know, you can come here, whenever you choose to muse to think, to write in your journal, just to settle. And in a moment, I’m going to read a bit of a poem that I wrote.

It’s weird because I’m not a poet. And you’ll notice that, but this was a poem that I wrote in this quiet place. Because this is a description of my quiet place. So just sit back inside, let the words just drift over you.

My Quiet Place

Where world standstill

Where worry ends,

Where thinking ends, and never begins.

Memories of the past and memories of the future where the overwhelming love of others disappear.

To wonder in a place of solitude and quiet, finding answers to my questions,

With so little thoughts in my head,

Where the world is so simple.

Where all the spinning ends,

Where I count my blessings,

Where I can touch the people I love with my mind,

Where I bathe alone in the love of those who have touched me where I can

My quiet place.

So that was, well, it was the second edit of a poem. But hey, it really represents what I feel is a quiet place. And the thing is, I’m not near that quiet place anymore. It’s no longer mine. But I can go there in my mind if I want to. Or I can create that feeling, the feeling the essence of a quiet place, wherever I want to go. And be back again, in the emotion of a quiet place where I can do my thinking, my music, my journaling. And so can you can have this quiet place if you want.

But I bet you’ve got one of your own. Maybe a time and a place where you just felt so comfortable. That you can recall your own. Maybe you have one already a real-life quiet place where you can go. Well maybe just create one when you go into nature, a Coffee House, maybe a park anywhere really. Or if you wanted to, you can create one in your head in your mind just by using your Imagineering and go there whenever you choose. And all you have to do is do it.

There you go. That was my quiet place. I hope that maybe that just resonates with you. Maybe that just well feels different. Or is a feeling that you can imagine yourself and replicate it. Or you can see the details because you can go into so much detail to create your quiet place. If you want to better help with that. Maybe, and this isn’t the plug but it is a sort of a plug. It’s creating your own inner retreat, which is a hypnosis program I have on paulcloughonline.com You don’t need it, if you don’t need it, because you could follow what we’ve just done but If you apply that, that massive discount, well, hey, it’s really really pennies were not pennies, but it’s, it’s so easy to do. And not only do you create your retreat in your mind with that quiet place, but there’ll be different places you could create. So maybe just have a little read of that. And it’s paulcloughonline.com/retreat.

Have a look, remember that discount that you get by joining the hypnosis side of this podcast. And that’s paulcloughonline.com/podcast. And I’ll tell you about that massive discount it’s about 70%. That’s massive. Anyway, either way, I just hope that is my intention that you have a quiet place that whenever you need it from, you know, maybe just wanting a bit of space, maybe there is a bit of overwhelming. Or maybe you just want to recharge, maybe sit down somewhere, use a little bit of self-hypnosis, to recharge, to come back, come back home, center, and settle.

All those wonderful things you can do in a matter of moments. And then when you come back to this little world, the real world on the outside, you’re in a better place. Better place on the outside better place on the inside. Anyway, have a look at that. And I’d love to know what, what your feedback is on this sort of five-minute quickie was going to be about 15 minutes. But I’d love to know your feedback of this type of five-minute quickie where we just have an experience is it something you enjoy is a different type of experience that you’d like to just disappear into?

Let me know. Email me feedback at personal development unplugged.com And it comes to me personally and then we’ll get something on. We’ll get something on. We’ll get another five-minute quickie or even a longer podcast or really get a nice bit of hypnosis or maybe and maybe I might just create a full hypnosis process of just this one. I don’t know. Yeah, we’ll see.

We’ve got that inner retreat and that’s probably even better because it allows you to add to it over and over again. And there’s a money-back guarantee by the way I didn’t tell you that and you could try it out. And hey, nothing to lose money-back guarantee. Anyway, until the next time, my friends do let me know. And if you feel somebody else might benefit from having a quiet place to just de-stress. Just pass this on if you would just pay it forward, share, and in sharing, we’ll all get that little bit better.

Anyway, until next time, my friend. Enjoy your quiet place

you are now leaving the unplugged mind as Paul Clough. It’s time to fly and be brave my friend.

Living For Tomorrow – Making Tomorrow Great

Living For Tomorrow – Making Tomorrow Great

This is a transcription direct from audio so………..

Please be kind if you’re the kind of person who likes grammar and gets cross when you don’t see it. This comes direct from the audio,

So this is another quick five minute quickie that lasts longer than five minutes. And it is going to head towards a longer podcast, which is all about making sure they’re your wishes become dreams and your dreams become reality. And they’re never put off. And they don’t just fade away. If that’s of interest to you have a listen after this. But you have to be honest with yourself when you do because I’m gonna ask you to do something. You have to be honest with yourself. And who else should you be honest, to, if you can’t be honest with yourself.


I wanted to just think out loud to get you curious. Maybe you can give me some feedback of the type of things that we can add.


So what am I talking about?


As I know that you’re saying Cloughie get to the point?


Well, it’s all about living for tomorrow. Because isn’t that the thing to do? live for tomorrow? Making sure that tomorrow is going to be awesome. And well, if you did that, would you make tomorrow Great?


There is a saying that tomorrow never comes? Well, it’s so does come because if you’re on a Monday like I am now I’m meeting somebody tomorrow on Tuesday, when I wake up tomorrow morning is Tuesday, tomorrow’s come today. I know it’s today. But it was tomorrow, yesterday. And yesterday’s gone. So today is tomorrow. And I created tomorrow by making that appointment. Sort of isn’t it?


But tomorrow never comes. And we can make tomorrow great. But sometimes there’s that thing. If you don’t put Tuesday as being tomorrow, let’s use a date now and a calendar. If time is anything other than a construct, then we put it in a diary. So we’re just heading towards a particular date, not necessarily tomorrow. If all we’re thinking of is well, not necessarily tomorrow, but in the future, when things happen. If this was to happen, or when I’ve got this in my pocket, or if I’ve got a bit more learning, I understand this or I’ve done that, then I will do this.


Some people are even dependent on the bloody weather, how I feel when I’m feeling more confident in this. That’s the BS of living for tomorrow, because then time slides. I’m sure you know that when you go, I’m going to set a goal. And I’m not quite sure when I want it. But I want it in the future. And guess what? A year later it’s still out there somewhere, because time slides into the future. If there is a future, I think there’s a future.


So to me, you can create a really good tomorrow. A really good future that becomes a now if you take action right now and I know that’s bloody obvious really isn’t it? Taking action right now. ,And a lot of people say and I do do, live in the moment. And I’ve talked about this just recently, living in the now. And if I haven’t, I will be because I’ve got notes on it. My mind’s got a little bit weird. Did I do it yesterday or have I set it for some time in the future? You see trying to make the future better? for you. For me? It all gets weird.


But I just wanted you to Muse before I go into a longer podcast on this. Do you put things off for tomorrow, the next day? some time in the future? And you might say oh, absolutely I never do that Paul. Never, never, never, never never. And then you start talking about stuff that put off because we don’t admit it to ourselves. Because you can think right at this moment, I’m not putting anything off. Well just think back backwards a little bit into the days of the now that has gone into the past of things that you were going to do and you still haven’t done them? What would happen if you just made a little list of those? Yeah, it could pee you off a little bit. Make you down. I know when I did this, I was looking at it and saying these have been on the list forever. And I still haven’t got around to doing them.


But there’s a reason for that. And I worked out mine but not here in this episode. This is because this is only a five minute quickie This is to get your juices flowing as it were. Because I want you to think about the things that you have put off. You’ve put off for the future, when the time is right.


Because I can guarantee you, very few Cloughie guarantees. But yeah, I know that you don’t fill up your whole day. If you do, you are the exception to the rule. And I if I had a hat, I take it off. But I know I don’t do that, I know so many other people who say they do, do not live and fill their day up completely with everything. So we’ve all got a bit of time, a little bit of time spare and we got a little bit of time, we could shuffle in the day right now.


So that’s what we’re going to be working on. I don’t want you to think about that now. But I want you to think about what are the things that you have still got in your mind to do? Maybe you’ve written them down. Or maybe they’re just like little wishes floating around. And one thing about wishes is, if we don’t do anything with them, if we don’t write them down for a start, they fade away into the ether, into the multiverse, and some other person picks them up and gets the idea of it and does it. We’ve all been there.


So just for a little while, I don’t know when the actual longer podcast will be around this. But just for a little while get a little notebook or a little piece of paper and a pen, pencil, a fountain pen, I love my fountain pen, get your little notebook. And just write down the things that you have been putting off for tomorrow. Not necessarily deliberately so, because there’s Yeah, there’s ones I’m putting off. Because I’m waiting for this to happen. I want to list of those. And a list of the things that you’ve actually have put off already, not consciously or unconsciously, or whatever. But they’re just there.


Let’s just take a little itinerary of those things. And then we can work from there. So this is a five minute quickie, which is taken, I don’t know about six or seven minutes. But I just want you to think of things so we can dive in deeper. Now if there’s anything in this, that as you make those notes and you go, Paul, I want you to make sure that you include this in the longer podcast, because this is something that’s going to be important to me. That I do create in the future. So when it slides into the now, boom, I’ve done all the work to create that reality, because I couldn’t create it right now. But I’ve done everything to create it. And if there’s something that you really need for that, let me know feedback@personaldevelopmentunplugged.com.


That’s the email. I’ll give you a personal reply. Might even send you a little gift. Who knows.


But you don’t need a gift for that. But maybe, we’ll see. And I will be able to fill that podcast up with loads of little goodies, loads of little gems, little golden nuggets strewn everywhere, everywhere just for you.


And they’ll create little golden nuggets for everyone else. I know that you know that too. So keep your ears open, your heart open, and just be around.


Okay, so that’s what we’re really talking about is doing a podcast in the future, isn’t it? What? Yeah, but, and there is a but. I don’t like buts, but there is a but. This one is going to happen because I’m going to create it because I need things to do I have steps to do and then we’ll do it. And then we’re gonna have fun making our reality a reality. I think I know.


Be there. Bye bye.


So 90 seconds. Now we all know stress is not good for us. Well too much stress is really bad. And you know it just builds up and builds up. What would it be like? If you could really deeply relax, really relax. Not just relax your muscles but your mind. Everything about you just deeply relax through hypnosis. You see what I’ve got is Well, I’ll tell you what I haven’t got. I haven’t got a guided meditation that goes down to the riverbank and makes you feel relaxed for the moment. But what I have got a two tracks one a longer track which guides your unconscious mind into deep relaxation to relax and be comfortable in the mind and the body is every muscle, every fiber of you, just deeply relaxing. So you can learn at the unconscious level, how to relax.


And then a slightly shorter length hypnosis track to allow you to go into deep relaxation instantly. And be there for just say, five minutes. So in between meetings or whenever you just want to relax so quickly, so easily, you can just go there for five minutes. And then in between, you can use a longer track to have that longer experience. Each time building up this skill of deep relaxation.


How do you get it? Well, basically, you just go to paulcloughonline.com, forward slash, relax, there you go. Two programs, go and have a look. I give you a little video about it as well. Have a little listen. What would happen if it didn’t work, well it didn’t work there’s a money back guarantee. So you have got nothing to lose. But what would happen and you got supersonically good at relaxing. Wouldn’t it be awesome? Teach your body how to just relax and your mind to just relax. Just enjoy. Go to paulclough online.com forward slash relax and check it out.
