Absolutely brilliant. Uplifting,refreshing and shows how we can all help each other to raise human consciousness. I’m going to join the religion of “being kind”. Thank you both 🙏


You, the man behind adjusting camera focus, you did a really good job, I think this was the hardest one :p keep up team (y)


Amazing. Love Paul McKenna.


Using hypnosis you can ask person about his/her previous lives (upto 2-3 previous lives), which proves that only body dies, but spirit goes to other body.
As well, hypnotized person knows future, but is extremely dangerous to ask, don’t even try.


Fabulous interview with Paul McKenna. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Well done.


Amazing interview! One of my favourites alongside with Gregg Branden & Lipton. Letting these words sink on my subconscious mind
