Proactive Personal Development with Michael J. Emery

Michael J. Emery, owner of Attention Shifting, LLC, received a Bachelor of Arts in Marketing and Advertising Management from Portland State University and a Master of Arts from the Institute of Transpersonal Psychology. While studying marketing and advertising, Michael’s fascination with communication grew when he saw that the stickiness of a message would determine how well an audience would remember the advertisement but there seemed to be no method his professors used to adapt the message. He began to study communication and human behavior, which eventually led him to begin researching various communication models. Michael is certified as a Hypnotherapist and NLP Trainer. Michael is an avid traveler and in his free time he enjoys traveling, bicycling, yoga, martial arts, reading, and creating music.

The Right and Responsibility to Self Development

Michael believes that everyone has the right to understand the mental and cognitive processes behind their behavior and has the freedom to explore their individual identities and missions in life. His commitment to his clients is to empower them upon their personal path to self-discovery and personal development.

Neuro-linguistic Programming (NLP) and Ericksonian Hypnosis

Michael encountered Ericksonian Hypnosis and NLP (neuro-linguistic programming) in which he found a system of empowering beliefs that explained the processes behind human behavior and created the resources necessary for personal development by design. Michael began studying NLP and Hypnosis independently in 2000 and began the certification process in 2003. Michael regularly uses NLP techniques in helping his clients achieve their personal development goals.

Transpersonal Psychology as a Model for Human Excellence

Michael later found transpersonal psychology, the extension of psychological studies into consciousness studies, spiritual inquiry, mind-body relationships and personal transformation. Transpersonal psychology provided a philosophical foundation for the application of NLP and hypnosis. Since not too many people are aware of what transpersonal psychology is, the psychologist, Carl Jung first coined the term transpersonal (uberpersonlich) when he used the phrase transpersonal unconscious as a synonym for collective unconscious. Transpersonal psychology looks to historical and contemporary leaders, saints, prophets, artists, heroes, and heroines for models of full human development, and of the growth-oriented nature of the healthy human psyche. In this field, Michael’s studies examined models for full personal development by identifying the strategies for motivation and inspiration used by his personal heroes to create meaning in their lives.

What is Personal Development?

Personal development is what occurs while you begin to take full responsibility for the following areas of your life:

  • Physical
  • Social
  • Emotional
  • Spiritual
  • Financial

This is a process of knowing oneself. A proactive approach to personal development will challenge you to consciously decide what sort of person you want to become, and then through the use of hypnosis and NLP, you can create the internal resources (beliefs, identity, attitudes, and mindset) you require to be congruent with your ideal self.

In one way or another, you have chosen to be the person you are today – both unconsciously, by default because of your life experiences and the environment in which you have lived and consciously, because of the areas in life in which you have chosen to apply yourself. Together, we can explore on both a conscious and unconscious level why you are not achieving what you want out of life. When there are areas of your life that are not what you desire, then we will uncover the underlying cause and create a new resource state that is congruent with your personal development direction.

In Michael’s opinion, the objective of personal development is to move beyond limiting fears or beliefs and empower you to achieve extraordinary results in your life as you create a meaningful way of living and pursue a primary life purpose.
