Hello, my name is Tom Fortes Mayer,
I have a post graduate diploma in clinical hypnotherapy from the London College of Clinical Hypnosis and I am passionate about the power of the mind.
I have also studied a number of other healing modalities including EFT, EMDR, Gestalt Counseling, family Constellations and Reparenting Constellations.
Since the year 2000 I have been on a mission to understand why some people can, in one instant, suddenly decide to change their life for good.
On January 2nd of the year 2000, I had a massive life changing moment. I experienced a moment of such complete and utter bliss that I saw the world totally differently and I haven’t looked back since. In that moment I understood that all my worries, stresses, upsets, struggles and challenges were all born out of one flawed idea. My whole life and all my maddening machinations, manipulations and strategies were built on the idea that I was a separate being that needed to struggle to survive.
Through an incredible set of coincidences I had been blessed with a moment of clarity that broke through all my conditioned ways of seeing the world. In that one moment I felt connected to everything and everyone that had ever existed. My sense of I was now a sense of all. There was a continuous sensation of oneness with everything that stretched in every direction simultaneously. There was no here and there, no then and now. In that moment I sensed that all of the world’s struggles and all of the human suffering (like my own) were all also driven by this idea of separation and survival.
When we operate from the separate and afraid self we go on to cause so much unnecessary difficulty and destruction in our lives and in the world at large. All of my suffering and seeming dysfunction was simply a reflection of a set of inaccurate ideas that I had been holding onto (unknowingly) that were throwing me off-balance. That imbalance made me behave in (fearful) ways that prevented me from feeling the full force of bliss and perfection that is available to all of us at any given moment.
In that experience of clarity, I felt the joyful perfection of the universe coursing through every fragment of my extended universal being. I was not part of the universe. There was no separation anymore. I was the universe. What was exquisitely magical was the familiarity I felt at that moment. I was finally home. That was so telling. I knew this place at my core. That was me. Not that other guy.
The bliss was all-consuming and yet there was deep sadness moving through me coming from all of the compassion I felt for all of the needless suffering in the world. I was alone on top of one of the most beautiful hills in the world surrounded by sea and colour and I disappeared into the experience completely. I melted flat down onto the ground and let it all in and let it all out. This was the sweetest moment of my life and I still feel those shock waves in my now open heart. I am sure by many people’s perspective it would have looked like a complete and utter breakdown. I guess that is what it was. A total breakdown of an idea, of a position, of a worldview.
What was being experienced was clear and pure, complete and perfect.
It totally changed my life in an instant!
Since that moment I have been passionate about connecting people to their perception of the interconnectedness of life, and thereby helping them overcome their challenges and their fears very quickly.
This drives everything that I do.
I hope you find it enormously valuable.
