The Hermetic Principles Behind Thinking Your Boss Is A Prick with Human Source Coder and Multi-Potentialities Kellie Stewart
Kellie Stewart is an expert in human behavioral science.  Kellie Stewart is an expert in the laws of nature. Kellie Stewart is an expert in metaphysics.  Kellie Stewart.....is an expert in being an expert.  In other words, Kellie blows people's minds professionally.  She cannot be labeled.  Heck... She doesn't want to be.  Let's just say, she does entrepreneurial activities, public speaker-ish activities, spiritual practices, philosophical discussions, podcasts, lectures, workshops, and meditations where she mind-melds with horses.  And she wrecks Greg's speaking facilities in this episode because every sentence she utters is intended to break apart the subordinations holding you back in life.  Seriously, Greg is not as articulate in this one. Kellie truly loops him into a corner.  She's working to uncover the code that makes us all part of the matrix of the universe.  Dare to understand how it all fits together?  Even if you think you know something, you'll un-think yourself into a new realm of experience after listening to this one.  Kellie's Links: https://www.facebook.com/humansourcecodex http://www.hscx.io/ https://podcasts.apple.com/podcast/human-source-codex/id1520135522 If you enjoyed this podcast, please leave a review!

“Daddy, Do Corporate Consultants Die Happy?” with Easy Teams Founder Bruce Williams
A very deep, very spiritual conversation with someone who has worked with lawyers AND exotic dancers.  Training communications and leadership skills are effective in all walks of life!  From Bruce William's website:  "I have a business, called Easy Teams, where I help people feel more light-hearted about life. I think it’s a tragedy that so many people wake up on Monday morning dreading the thought of going to work. Everyone deserves to love what they do and do what they love. So I do what I can to help people understand themselves, and how other people tick, so they can work together with less stress and more 'Yes!'" Bruce delves into his past with Greg, exploring why personality tests are mostly garbage (even though he has them on his website) and how a seemingly racist grandfather can transform before your very eyes.  Greg and Bruce loop all over the place, but the message is profound.  What does it take to lead a meaningful life?

LIGHT! LIGHT! LIGHT!: Live Psychic Healing Demo with Lightbox Method's Steven Ross and Happy Hypnotist Tim Seitz (ftr. Metaphysical Coach Tatyana Bondarenko)
The Man Whose Arm Turns Black  Y'all know that Greg is skeptical of most people calling themselves "psychic healers" that claim they've cured things that can only be qualified as miracles.  Cancer, Leukemia, COVID.  Greg has his doubts.  Returning Looper champion Tim Seitz, the Happy Hypnotist, introduced Greg to a psychic healer with a track record a few months back.  Praised by other skeptics, he has been able to use "light" even from a distance and help people that were terminal live longer.  It sounds outrageous, it sounds offensive, it sounds like it's against everything the medical community stands for... And it sounds exactly like the episode you want to listen to...especially IF you've ever wanted to believe that connecting to divinity might actually have tangible results.  Steven Ross, a gifted healer with supernatural abilities, founder of the Lightbox Supercharger Session, joins Greg along with willing volunteer Tatyana Bondarenko, to clear shadow men, demons, spirits, and physical bruises.  By the time you're done listening, you might not be able to do anything EXCEPT believe.  Steven Ross's Page: https://www.facebook.com/lightboxfoundation/ Tim Seitz's Page: https://www.facebook.com/timseitz Tatyana Bondarenko's Page: https://www.facebook.com/zorilanestone Do you like this  podcast?

There's No Such Thing As Hypnosis with Controversial Hypnosis Expert Jonathan Royle
Dave Elman is considered the founding father of direct hypnosis.  Milton Erickson is considered the founding father of indirect, conversational hypnosis.  They'd smack Greg in the face with their pocket watches for this interview because his guest today is considered the dude that pisses on all of their legacies.  Open Loops welcomes Jonathan Royle.  Royle is regarded as a leading expert on Hypnosis, Hypnotherapy, NLP, Stage Hypnotism, Magic & Mentalism. With a wide and varied career in both Entertainment and Therapy,  he's here to tell you that hypnosis as we know it is complete nonsense.  Mind practitioners have no special powers whatsoever.  His views on hypnosis are the most radical and provocative Greg has ever heard. There, he welcomes it with open arms and additional gas to pour on..... As a matter of fact, in this controversial, bombastic, arrogant, self-aggrandizing, and wildly mind-opening episode, Jonathan asserts that even though hypnosis is complete bullocks and NLP is full of winky-wankiness that doesn't do anything unless the subject is expecting change in the first place, mind control is still VERY real and the elites are controlling our every thought.  These are some of the most outrageous views of hypnosis, mind therapy, healing, and society ever spoken.  He names names. He challenges other hypnotists openly.  He's called "The Bad Boy of Hypnosis."  ...This episode proves why.  ----- Get the Elite Hypnosis Training Bootcamp here: https://klearthoughtsmentalismhypnosis.wordpress.com/2020/11/06/worlds-greatest-accredited-home-study-hypnotherapy-nlp-hypnosis-mind-therapy-training-courses/ Jonathan's Website: http://www.magicalguru.com/ If you like Open Loops and/or outrageous opinions expressed in a public audio forum, please Subscribe and let us know simply by leaving a quick review at http://www.ratethispodcast.com/openloops

Disease is a Manifestation of Health with Dr. Kim A. Jobst
This episode is Open Loops' most important discussion on recovering from Covid-19 so far...  To vax or not to vax?  That is the question.  But as former Hamlet-playing Shakespearean actor turned Clinical Researcher turned Metaphysician Dr. Kim Jobst will tell you: It's the wrong question.  What's really going on with pandemics, pharmaceuticals, healthcare, COVID, depression, dementia?  What if we had the vaccine with us already?  And what if the true red pill, if you took it, could lead to a global awakening?  This ain't some conspiracy theory episode.  This may just be the most qualified professional Greg has had a chance to interview yet.  And what a privilege it was:  Dr. Kim A. Jobst DM. FRCP. MFHom. is an Integrative Health Specialist and Metaphysician with over 35 years of experience. With specialist certification in General Internal Medicine and Neurodegenerative Diseases and Dementia, qualifications in Homoeopathic Medicine, Traditional Chinese acupuncture, Jungian Analytical Psychology and the Demartini Method™, he has travelled the world to deepen his understanding of Science and Healing, leading to his being elected a Fellow of The Royal College of Physicians of London, and becoming a member of the Royal Society of Medicine. Dr. Jobst’s work has focused on developing The Science of Meaning about which he was asked to speak by His Holiness The Dalai Lama, and as a result of which he proposed that “Disease is a Manifestation of Health” and that all diseases are “Diseases of Meaning”. This perspective goes way beyond the field of medicine to include current challenges to our environment, politics, education, industry and social systems globally. At the core of this work lives the inescapable truth that Meaning and Purpose, as expressions of consciousness, govern not only human physiology and perception, but the manifestation of all life, making them the primary cause in human health and wellbeing. It was for this work that Dr. Jobst was awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award by The Soukya Foundation in India, presented to him by Nobel Laureate Archbishop Desmond Tutu in 2013. It is the cornerstone to his consulting and development work with individuals and groups all over the world.

Interview with The 1st Ever Influencer and Most Infamous Girl at Greg's High School, Ashley Pennington
Before Kim Kardashian broke the internet.  Before the Jenners blew up Instagram.  Before dresses were white and gold, or blue and black. Before we all became selfishly obsessed with that one most important person: ourselves.  There was one girl that defied all the standards, all the rules, all the expectations.  The first Myspace account, the first Facebook account, the first Friendster page...she was on "social media" before it even became a term.  Her name: Ashley Fulton.  In the mid-00s, she arrived at Dover-Sherborn High School (where podcast host Greg graduated in 2007), and took that slow horse-town by storm.  A controversial figure that knew how to party, make an impact, rouse the rabble, but also ace the test.  She was mythologized for her notoriety.  She was friends with everyone...yet utterly misunderstood.  Until now.  Fulton is gone, Pennington has risen.  Ash Pennington, Lifestyle Coach, Influencer to the Influencers, Holistic Heath and Yoga Instructor, and Mother of Two Children, joins Greg to discuss the TRUTH about what happened to her at Dover-Sherborn High School.  It's a Tell-All Episode that'll make you rethink everything you understood about the people in high school you thought you knew best...

Game of Clones: A Song of Sh*t and Sugar with Quantum Poet Simon Welsh
CONSPIRACY THEORY  "God Vs. WOMD: Ch 1: God is shit and sugar" by Simon Welsh  "There are many ways to say this but the message cannot change. Many will reject it as peculiar and strange. ‘Strange’ makes people frown; makes them question where to go. It asks them to consider all the things they do not know.   God has been abandoned through the twisting of the Bible. And many have decided that it’s better to be tribal. Dog eat dog and cat eat cat.  There is no holy saviour. In order to survive we must exhibit cruel behaviour.   They think this life is all there is; beyond there’s just a void, And when we die the person that we were will be destroyed. So grab the things you need for now, the things you’ll need for later. No one’s looking after us.  There isn’t a creator.   Some believe quiet differently that God’s an awesome guy, That he watches and rewards us from his home beyond the sky; That Heaven is a place that only certain souls can find; That the rest of us are damned because we’re sinners and we’re blind.   But whether you’re a Catholic, a Protestant or Jew, Or a Buddhist, or a Hindu or a soul without a clue, God is not a vessel for the prayers of your agenda. God is like a mirror – every prayer reflects the sender:   God is your reflection in the world you see and feel. God is everyone you meet. That’s what makes it ‘real’. God is not reserved for the biblical believer, Though some may say this poem is the work of a deceiver." (CONTINUED HERE)  Find the conclusion of this epic poem, along with Simon's other works at www.simonwelshpoetry.co.uk 31st October 2011 © Simon Welsh Poetry ------ If you know someone else that might enjoy Open Loops, please share this podcast with a friend!  Let us know your thoughts and ponderings and rhymed couplets at ratethispodcast.com/openloops

Figures.    She's now an LA-based actress and filmmaker whose work has been featured at the Oscar-Qualifying LA International Short Film Festival, New York International Short Film Festival, and Chelsea Film Festival. Her short film, The Ceremony, was a Semi-Finalist at the 2020 Flickers' Rhode Island International Film Festival.  Last fall 2019, Addie invited Greg to play a recording studio manager in a short film that's a love letter to their hometown, Boston.  Greg took the role immediately. And pretended to smoke herbal cigarettes for weeks in preparation (now he's addicted to herbs).    And to paraphrase the Bard himself, what did Addie learn through all of this?  "A short film doth made in Boston can sometimes be  'Sbloody hell."  "''Tis worth the struggle."  Addie joins Greg to talk about her new short film "Punch Me In," among other trade secrets about making it in Hollywood, including:     -The difference between type-casting and essence, and how figuring that out as an actor changed her life    -Why absolute humiliation can lead you to creative enlightenment   -Addie alchemizes NIXVM into great art?   Greg was in her movie.

Greg brings on a fantastic guest, and they're talking lucid dreams and astral projections and slipping in between realities by accident!  And it all starts with nudist parents?  Yes and YES! Greg welcomes Tjasa Ferme, a New York City-based Shaman, Actress. and the Founder/Artistic Director of Transforma Theatre Inc.  It gets weird. But that's by design.  This might be a podcast episode.  You also might just be dreaming... --------------------------- Tjasa's links:  The Art of Lucid Dreaming on October 8th: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/art-of-lucid-dreaming-intro-induction-tickets-123268987861 Facebook: @shamanwomannyc Instagram: @femrolemodel ------------------------- If you enjoy this podcast, please go to ratethispodcast.com/openloops and leave a review!

This Episode Will Put You Into Trance: Interview with Break Up To Wake Up Coach, Jocelyn Bellows
NLP and HYPNOSIS  WARNING: DO NOT LISTEN TO THIS EPISODE WHILE DRIVING OR OPERATING HEAVY MACHINERY.  If you've ever wanted to experience hypnosis, this is THE episode to listen to.  This entire hour is designed to transform all your lives at the unconscious level.  It won't sound like hypnosis, on the surface. But that's just a testament to how skilled our guest (and Master Looper) Jocelyn Bellows is.  Greg tried to escape her trancing ways multiple times but he couldn't do it.  He really did try.  Jocelyn Bellows is the host of Leap podcast and is known for her work as the Break Up to Wake Up Coach.  Jocelyn leads Greg (and all of you) through an awakening process that involves proving that the Force from Star Wars is real, that your heart emotes 6 ft beyond your physical body, that your core values are the same as the things you admire about your heroes, and that you're probably not to blame for anything bad that happened between ages 1-7.  So everything after 7---that's on you, you idiot.  Just kidding.  Also:  -Why is self-care NOT selfish?  -How long does it take to get over your ex-husband once you wake up? -How can changing your physiology make you more attractive? At one point, Jocelyn delivers a baby that Greg didn't even realize he was pregnant with...  Talk about a wakeup call!  ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Jocelyn's Links:  Work with Jocelyn: https://www.facebook.com/jocelyn.bellows24 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/whatsyourleap Instagram: @whatsyourleap Podcast: Leap ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ratethispodcast.com/openloops

Sniper Rifles and Spirits: Interview with The Military Medium, Dean McMurray
PSYCHIC MEDIUMSHIP  Yeah, yeah, Open Loops brought you a psychic, and of course, we ask about the election... But that aside: Dean McMurray, the world-renowned Military Medium, joins Greg this episode to discuss if we should hand psychics military-grade weaponry, but also if we should spend time during Basic Training teaching soldiers how to align their chakras. And of course, your host Greg gets scared when psychics come on the show. Is Greg going to turn out okay, Dean? Is he? That's all he wants to know on this episode, and he's right to ask. Because Dean senses those things. Dean McMurray is clairvoyant, clairsentient, claircognizant, clairgustant, and even experiences clairtangency. He has mediumship abilities, he can remote view, he's dowsed, he's found missing people, he does intuitive real estate consulting, and he has communicated with extraterrestrial entities. And he also happens to be a 24 year Army Veteran. When military rigidity meets midnight hauntings, you know you're in for a treat. Also, Project Stargate. Secret Military Undercover Ops. UFOS. Exorcisms. All in this episode. Dean McMurray serves it up. And it definitely tastes better than the army food they show in the movies. .....But like, is Greg gonna be ok? -------------------------- Dean's Links: Dean McMurray, Military Medium Official Website: www.deanmcmurray.com The Red, White and You Show: https://www.facebook.com/theredwhiteandyoushow/ --------------------------- If you enjoy Open Loops, please subscribe, rate, and review this podcast at www.ratethispodcast.com/openloops Episode analytics

Carpe Diem: A Conversation with Greg's High School English/Drama Teacher, Ricki Lombardo
She taught Greg about existentialism before he even knew he was having an "existential crisis."  Ricki directed Greg in plays and musicals in high school.  He was her Mayor of Who in Seussical, her Oscar Madison in The Odd Couple, and when she directed Les Mis Greg's Junior year, Greg played the Master of the House.  Also Greg once wrote a musical number to Catcher in the Rye because of her class.

What Even Is "Spirituality" in Los Angeles?: Interview with Fellow Looper Samantha Colicchio
MANIFESTATION  Around ten years ago, Samantha Colicchio used the Law of Attraction to manifest an iPod out of thin air in a New York City taxicab.  Now she's not sure if there's an evil cabal in charge of enslaving the masses or if meditation is the stuff of Satan.  One thing's for sure: she's one of Greg's best friends from college. And if there's anything these two aspire to have, beyond entertaining these very deep and tangential conversations for rest of their friendship, it's to have the wisdom of an old bearded mystic in an art gallery on a completely free 10 day trip to Israel.  They love those guys.  Find out:  How does the ego relate to success with The Law of Attraction?  How does Samantha know that there is a higher power?  Is Judaism designed for people with OCD?  Put your listening ears in a chair and hold on tight.  It's Hava Nagila time.  -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- -Shows are dropping like Kingda Ka, but there's always room for a new attraction.  We love making this show for you.

In Case of Cancel Culture, Break Open This Episode: Interview with Risk Communications Expert Leonard Greenberger
APPLIED PSYCHOLOGY  Greg needs a preventative solution for this podcast in case he says something wrong.  As lots of people in Greg's life know, he's prone to saying controversial, provocative things. Oftentimes for his own amusement. Oftentimes just for a reaction. It's sick. It's messed up. He doesn't mean it. He's sorry and he hopes he'll do better.  Do you feel better about Greg? If you feel one-percent better, it's because of our guest, crisis-mode smooth speaker Leonard Greenberger who talks about how to effectively get out of disasters in a fully human way and deeply effective way (and it even works for sociopaths!).  Leonard Greenberger has a podcast called What to Say When Things Get Tough and a book with the same name. He is an academic researcher, but more importantly, a practitioner and consultant to businesses regarding "risk communication" when they make terrible mistakes and just do general dumb stuff.  But it works for your personal life, too!  Clinton, Reagan,  Felicity Huffman. It's all very insightful. It's on this show.  Greg used one of the techniques discussed here at his day job a few weeks ago and for once, he didn't feel like a sociopath.  We are so sorry for all that he's wrought.  Show Links:  What to Say When Things Get Tough: Business Communication Strategies for Winning People Over When They're Angry, Worried and Suspicious of Everything You Say by Leonard Greenberger, https://amzn.to/3hBr1GD What to Say When Things Get Tough - https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/id1519077522  ----------------- Shows are dropping like Kingda Ka, but there's always room for a new attraction.  We love making this show for you.

Taylor Swift's Psychic Diabetes: Interview with "Cotton Candy Clairvoyant" Andrea S.

She's filled with artistic expression beloved by the masses.   At least, that's what I'm picking up from psychic medium, theatre artist, and host of the "Sweetheart Soul Sessions" podcast Andrea S.  9 years ago, she came to terms with her gifts for clairvoyance. Of course, chakra-deep empathy coursing through her veins at the frequency of 5G isn't quite something she's been able to "shake off."  (To all of T. Swift's "Squad" members...please don't hurt Greg).  Andrea shares the origins of her abilities, how they've influenced those around her and because Greg can't help but ask, she gives us all the juicy details.   Greg's fortune is told, pandemics are predicted, and yes, podcast fans, there's even murder.    "My favorite, er,....sweet psychic episode that references murder."   (Karen and Georgia...please don't hurt Greg).   Andrea's Links:   Podcast: Sweetheart Soul Sessions on Spotify, Sweetheart Soul Sessions on Anchor  Facebook Page: Sweetheart Soul Sessions (and message her for Reiki or readings!)  ----------------- Shows are dropping like Kingda Ka, but there's always room for a new attraction.  We love making this show for you.

Talking Taxidermy is the First Sign of Awakening: Interview with Soul Coach Anna Cantwell
SPIRITUALITY  The Lotus Flowers are blooming, the thin veil of capitalism is breaking, and dead lions and hippos speak to our guest, Anna Cantwell, a soul coach with a lot of wisdom to share.  The question is, am I talking to a human being...or am I simply chatting it up with a (sshhh!) vessel of wisdom?  Anna makes Greg realize he's spiritual. Anna tells us one of the wildest things a non-human creature has ever told her. Anna also is a delightful human, so obviously Greg questions it. She dishes the real story. And throughout it all...she glows.  Is Greg obsessed with finding the darkness in seemingly content people? Yes.  He has to wonder, will he ever glow?  He's not sure by the end but Greg is sure of one thing:  Listen to this episode if you want to glow.  Anna's Links:  Website: https://annacantwell.com/ Instagram: @iamannacantwell Work with Anna: Mindful Living Mentorship Autumn Series, Get a free one-on-one 30 minute session by referral.
