Host: WTCH, that is Glen Campbell and Southern Nights. Thanks for joining us. Now, I hope you join them tonight and we’ve been talking about this for days now, but hypnotist Mark Patrick is going to be in town coming up tonight Borders Inn & Suites Hotel here in Shawano and we got Mark on the phone with us right now. Good morning, Mark. How are you?
Mark: Good morning, thanks for having me on.
Host: Well, I got a few questions to ask you. Of course, tonight a big night. You’ve got two –again, you’re calling them seminars. Two seminars tonight and we’re going to talk more in depth, but one is a lose weight, the other one is stop smoking. Correct?
Mark: That’s correct. Those are the number one and number two resolutions each and every year. So, we’re going to be doing both of those.
Host: Question now. You’re a hypnotist and hypnosis, is that going to be a part of the seminars tonight?
Mark: We’re going to use hypnosis as a tool that’s correct to help people get control over those two behaviors and we’re going to be doing that tonight in our seminar. That’s correct.
Host: And I think that is one thing that you really emphasize Mark is the fact that –empowerment, that you’re going to willpower you to stop some of these things, correct?
Mark: Yeah. Absolutely. I think the biggest misconception of hypnosis and what people might be scared is you know, they’re going to bark or cluck or do crazy, silly things and hypnosis is the most natural experience and people actually love it after they experience it. We do it all the time. We drive, we go into hypnosis, before we go to sleep, when we wake up in the morning we’re in a hypnotic state. We don’t call it that, but it’s actually an alpha state of brain activity. So, all we’re going to do is get people back into these wonderful receptive states so they can start working on the behaviors they want to do in the first place which becoming a lifelong nonsmoker after struggling with it for many years. Or getting that weight off and having a healthier lifestyle.
Host: And Mark, who should attend tonight?
Mark: Well, if you are a person who is a chronic dieter, who has been on a zillion diets and you always do this, you lose weight, you get results and for some reason you always gain the weight back, you should attend. If you’re a person that wants to live a healthier lifestyle and if you are a smoker who loves to smoke and gets pleasure from it even though you know it’s killing you and tried everything under the Sun to stop smoking you should definitely attend our program because we’re going to show you how to use hypnosis to become a lifelong nonsmoker.
Host: Once again, two seminars tonight. What time are we going with each one Mark?
Mark: The weight loss session is from 5:30 to 7:30. Registration starts 30 minutes prior to that. And the stop smoking is from 8 to 10 P.M.
Host: Once again, I said Borders Inn & Suites here in Shawano, pretty much the corner of 29 and 22 as you get of highway 29 there. Doors open up you said registration about half hour prior there. So, at five o’clock stop on out. What’s would one, I guess attending the seminar time, what would one expect to get out of it?
Mark: Here’s what they’re going to get out of this one. They walk of the their hypnosis session respectively whether it’s weight loss or stop smoking, instead of feeling like they have to do all the different behaviors like have to stop smoking, have to think about not wanting cigarettes, they’re going to want to be a nonsmoker. We’re going to work on their images. So, we’re going to give them a healthy, slimmer person image which attracts habits automatically. I wish I could explain it in three seconds, but your image is the most important thing and then, we’re going to work with the smokers and create a nonsmoker image. Nonsmokers don’t think about cigarettes. They don’t have to use willpower. They just automatically don’t want to smoke. They could have their cup of coffee and do all those other fun things that they used to do as a smoker, but now they do it as a in control healthy nonsmoker.
Host: Talking with hypnotist Mark Patrick. Two seminars tonight, Borders Inn & Suites in Shawano. One at 5:30. That will be a weight loss seminar and then the stop smoking at eight o’clock. You don’t want to miss this. And feedback. Talk to us a little bit about feedback. Mark, what sort of feedback have you gotten, success stories?
Mark: Oh, we have so many success stories. We literarily have our own success story website which is Mark Patrick Seminars Reviews they can actually go to that site and they could see all the different testimonials. We’re always posting them up. You know, we’ve been doing this for 20 years. We’re blessed. And the secret is this. Just come down wanting to live a healthier lifestyle even if you’re skeptical. Half of my clients are. Usually a skeptical personality is an analytical personality or if you’re not even sure if you can be hypnotized, come down, we’ll show you how to use the most powerful muscle in your body which is your brain to get control over those behaviors once and for all.
Host: And once again, there is a small fee to participate tonight, to take control as you say, of your life. Anything else you might want to add Mark?
Mark: No, that’s it. I mean, you know let’s get back on track. Before you know it, spring will be here, people will want to be in a slimmer, healthier outfits and the amount of benefits you get as a nonsmoker are not just the money you save on cigarettes, but for all you smokers out there, when you become a nonsmoker, the kids are rooting you on, their grandkids are rooting you on. They are the ones that are going to benefit from this the most because they’re going to see you succeed and they’re going to also root for you and follow in those footsteps and hopefully, we could end this once and for all tonight so that nobody else in your family ever picks up another cigarette again.
Host: Well said. It’s two hours that could effect, probably will effect the rest of your life. Once again, 5:30 for the weight loss seminar, eight o’clock for your stop smoking seminar. It’s Borders Inn & Suites here in Shawano. If you don’t know where this is it’s pretty much the corner of highway 29 and 22 and it’s top on down there and of course, Mark will be on stage tonight and we’re going to see you down there. Thank you, Mark. Appreciate your time this morning.
Mark: Thanks for having me on.
