Wayne has delivered presentations to over 6,000 audiences worldwide, using hypnosis to entertain and assist people in achieving peak performance. He clarified that hypnosis is not about convincing someone to do something they don't want to do, but rather about helping them discover what they truly want to do.
Hypnosis, according to Wayne, is a way to relax the mind and body, allowing people to let go of their self-limiting beliefs and tap into their infinite intelligence. He respects the openness people share during his performances and aims to provide a positive and empowering experience.

Wayne discussed the connection between the body and mind and how they can work together to improve overall well-being. He emphasized the importance of movement and exercise in releasing stress and clearing the mind. He believes that by moving their bodies, people can break free from their thoughts and limiting beliefs.
Wayne introduced the concept of the "flow state," where individuals feel a sense of alignment and love operating within them. He suggested that movement, such as running, walking, jumping, or dancing, can help create a state of flow.
Reprogramming the Mind
Wayne explained that people have already been hypnotized throughout their lives through social conditioning. He encourages individuals to reprogram themselves by creating new mind triggers and visualizing their desired outcomes. He shared his personal experience in amateur wrestling, where he used visualization and self-hypnosis to reach the finals of the national championships.
Overcoming Negative Thoughts
When asked how to uncover and overcome negative thoughts that are self-destructive, Wayne suggested focusing on what one wants instead of what one doesn't want. He believes that by shifting focus, individuals can overcome self-destructive thoughts and behaviors.

Wayne shared his personal journey and the impact that wrestling and visualization have had on his life. He talked about setting high goals for himself, including making it to the Olympics, and how his passion for wrestling drove him to overcome obstacles. However, his dreams were shattered when he suffered a serious neck injury that required surgery. Surprisingly, through visualization and the power of the mind, Wayne was able to regain feeling and strength in his arms, ultimately avoiding the need for surgery.
Adapting to Challenges
Wayne emphasized the importance of going within and creatively visualizing what you want, especially during challenging times like the COVID-19 crisis. He shared his own experience of adapting to the loss of income from live events and how asking better questions and setting intentions helped him find new opportunities.
The Align Mind Method
Wayne introduced his Align Mind Method, a technique he developed to help millions of people achieve their goals. He encourages listeners to create daily disciplines that keep them in a positive state of being, emphasizing the importance of feeling and imagining total harmony.
