M.J. Plebon, Montreal online marketing and lead development specialist speaks with John Kobel founder of “4 Weeks to Freedom” a program developed by John to show people how they can use their minds to influence their present lives.
M.J.: I am with John Kobel who has been running a program called “4 Weeks to Freedom” for several years. John, can you explain what is “4 Weeks to Freedom”?
John: We as beings cohabiting our planet have a direct implication on what happens. Although lost in our traditions – it still exists in what we consider more primitive societies ( North American Natives, Australian aboriginals and Indians from India speak of a web or shawl which encompasses the universe and all beings – connecting us.) Our tradition has forgotten this, thus struggles with itself. We see the world and it’s inhabitants and see what is – many people with many different beliefs, seeing our differences and not our similarities. We don’t see that our beliefs are similar and our religions reflect regional custom and learned beliefs. We tend to believe that we are right . We don’t see the underlying spirituality which connects us. We see ourselves as victims of our reality and not the creators. Our program “Unleash the power of your mind”, with the help of very precise exercises brings you the profound understanding that you have a direct implication in what happens world wide that you are not just a powerless observer but a very powerful co-creator in your life and your world.
M.J.: Who would benefit from this type of program and what would they expect to accomplish?
John: The benefit is universal. We live in a society (almost with out exception) focused on what it is that we don’t want . We listen to ‘the news’ we watch the television – using it as background noise – not realizing that our subconscious mind retains everything – the disasters, violence, and the fear. – we don’t realize that our emotion are creative and just 30 seconds of emotion positive or negative has a direct input on our health, well being and the condition of the world within which we live. We sit with friends discussing politics, the economy and how expensive things are. We feel an uneasiness in our gut and we choose to ignore it not realizing that feeling is creating our reality. And we wonder why.
M.J.: Can you share with us a couple of historical examples of how this technique has benefited individuals?
John: Certainly it is what happens to people once they realize how powerful they are and how they express their gratitude. A young lawyer who worked non stop from 6 or 7 am until almost midnight (she worked for a huge legal firm where working like this was the norm) she wanted a change but didn’t know how. She was so focused on what she didn’t like she couldn’t find her way out. When she realized that she could change her focus, new and amazing opportunities opened to her. My first greeting for 2015 was from her and it read, “I was blind and you taught me to see-thank you!”.
M.J.: You state on your website, ” The program brings a very special QUALITY OF LIFE & PEACE OF MIND to those who succeed in bringing these very simple techniques back into their lives.” Can you explain what you mean by the statement, “bringing these techniques back into their lives”? Is this something that we had and have lost?
John: A middle aged woman lived a nightmare for over 15 years. Her son had committed suicide and she ever since lived in guilt. Her husband did the program with her – the first time she just listened but didn’t do the work. I invited her back because I can’t accept people not getting it. She sent me a letter thanking me for being in her life. She went on to say that following the program she was the only person who could make her life work. She let happiness return into her life. She understood that her life belonged to her and she had the power to do with it what she wanted. She understood so clearly that the 15 minutes of mental exercised daily keeps her in control of her life. She said, “Thank you for being in my life. Thanks to you and what you teach, I had for the first time in many years an amazing vacation.”
Another from a young lady who also did the program with her husband. She said John there are not enough words to convey the gratitude that I have for all your teachings, presents, and for being you. You have guided me through self-understanding, self-liberation and in creating a rich fulfilled life.
M.J.: John, what qualifies you as a specialist in this area? Can you tell us a little about your story and journey to where you are now?
John: 40 years ago I had an experience that literally changed the direction of my life. At that moment I realized that we were much more than the reflection we saw every time we passed a mirror. That there was an other part of us much greater than anything we could ever have imagined. That was 1978 – I began to be stopped by people everywhere – they not only told me what had happened (the experience that I had) but they began telling me things that we weren’t taught in our normal schooling. I began to play with what they told me – it worked so well I brought it into my life and things began to happen – such as a dream which on its own began to become real. That first dream gave me my first US patent and the sharpest images in the world for the next 22 years (until 2002) that product was used by the Canadian space program.
