Hope, Healing and WellBeing – The Synthesis Effect with Dr. John McGrail

Dr. John McGrail discusses his new book, The Synthesis Effect: Your Direct Path to Personal Power and Transformation. He begins by defining “synthesis” as bringing different ingredients together to create a stronger whole. His process helps people create change physically, emotionally and spiritually by helping them identify the causes of difficult issues. Understanding the cause of issues like addiction, phobias, chronic stress and anxiety can help lead to the development and use of tools to deal with them.

Dr. McGrail describes how he incorporates hypnosis, which is a natural state of consciousness, which creates a receptive state of mind, when we are more open to suggestions. Hypnosis helps us bypass the natural resistance we have to changes in our lives. He also discusses how we create our own reality. Quantum physics shows that the energy of our thoughts has an effect upon our environment. How we think, feel and behave has an effect on what we attract back into our lives.

He also discusses the difference between being ‘at effect’ when a person feels like they have no control, vs being “at cause” when we accept responsibility for what happens and choose how to respond. For more information please visit and
