    The Power of Belief with Dr John McGrail

    in Self Help

    When broken down to their essence, beliefs are little more than thoughts that have gained power through repetition. But they can become incredibly powerful, highly influential forces in our lives. They direct the course of our lives whether or not we are conscious of them.


    Beliefs may be individually based or passed to us through our families, environments, cultures, or media. However the belief is formed, once it is in place, whether fact, fiction or otherwise, it frames the perception of truth, and the perception of truth then determines one's reality in a given moment, a particular time period, or even for a lifetime. We can spend entire lifetimes with beliefs that are contrary to our desired state of being, never understanding the tremendous impact they have on our general well-being and happiness.


    My special guest today, John McGrail, Ph.D., author of the book The Synthesis Effect says, "Our beliefs once formed, become the bedrock of our behavior." He is here today to help us understand how our beliefs shape our experience of life and how we can change them to best benefit us.


    Dr. McGrail, the creator of the McGrail Method of Quantum Synthesis is a renowned hypnotherapist, self-improvement expert, spiritual teacher and popular radio and television guest.This is his second guest appearance on A Fine Time for Healing. Listen to his March 13, 2015 show.

    The Synthesis Effect with Dr. John McGrail

    in Psychology

    Dr. John McGrail is more than a clinical hypnotherapist. He is an established self-improvement expert and a sought after spiritual teacher who has become one of our country’s leading media experts and public speakers relating to personal growth and successful life transformation.


    Quantum Synthesis, or more simply Synthesis, is the term I use for the process of creating change and personal growth. It is is an amalgam of information and technique– tapping into, and utilizing the power and potential of both the conscious, cognitive part of the mind and the unconscious, more spiritual part of the mind. It begins with building understanding at a cognitive, logical (Western-thinking) level as to how and why the human mind (conscious and unconscious) functions the way it does, and how we develop our physical, emotional and spiritual dysfunctions.


    Self-hypnosis, meditation, visualization in addition to a number of other cognitive techniques and exercises are the primary tools through which Synthesis occurs. The entire process can be described as S to the third, or S cubed™:


    Synthesize  – (knowledge and technique leveraging conscious and unconscious);


    Synergize  – (balancing and integrating physical, emotional and spiritual energies);


    Succeed  – change, grow, and evolve all the way to practical enlightenment; living life powerfully and virtually free of suffering.


    What is most important about Synthesis is this: It is simple and it works–profoundly and quickly!

    The Synthesis Effect with Dr. John McGrail

    in Spirituality

    Dr. John McGrail author of The Synthesis Effect


    For far too many of us, modern life is a struggle. We are stressed, depressed, anxious, addicted, obese, terrified, and angry.  Are we doomed to live this way?

    Dr. John McGrail answers with an emphatic: "No. Anyone and everyone can create the life of their dreams."

    In The Synthesis Effect he shows you how, sharing his unique process in an engaging, friendly narrative that includes stories of real people overcoming real issues and empowering their lives quickly and profoundly.

    The Synthesis Effect will show you:



    How you became you--your personality, values, feelings, habits, beliefs, and behaviors--how you create your own reality, and why it's so difficult to change it.
    That you already have everything you need within you to change and transform your life, and how to use the models, tools, techniques, and exercises of Synthesis to do so.
    How to reach "practical enlightenment," living your life virtually free of suffering.

    The Synthesis Effect provides simple, powerful, and clinically proven techniques for creating personal change and transformation while outlining a realistic roadmap to help us rediscover our power, save ourselves, and save our planet.

    Something's Brewing with Casey and John - Holland Cowger

    in Entertainment

    Join us 


    Holland was born and raised in Hollywood, California, and currently lives in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. It was not uncommon for the entire clan to spend holidays, birthdays and other important life events together. Holland’s father is a jazz musician. He plays a haunting and beautiful alto sax. As a child Holland used to love watching his father play. Some of his fondest memories are of nights spent in all-night jazz clubs till the wee hours of the morning watching him pour every inch of his soul into his glorious sax. His mother, Keithe, is an avid reader. Holland’s childhood was filled with jazz, rock and roll, art and an endless stream of books. But there was also his love of baseball. Holland’s dad signed him up for the Hollywood Little League when he was eight years old. Baseball came easily to him. Hailing down flies beneath huge summer skies, watching the ball explode off his bat and disappear into a tiny dot. He soon learned that this was a game filled with poetry and miracles, an inch being the difference between failure and success.
