Why Hope and Giggles

This all began as an experiment as so many things do. I wanted to make the world a better place in some small and humble way. This is a philosophy I live by. Everywhere I go I try to make the world a better place in small and often anonymous ways because it simply makes me happy to do so.
Youtube is not exactly what I would call anonymous, but in a way it is because I am not famous. I do not get enough views to be recognised in my daily life. I go through my non cyber existance without many knowing what I do at bedtime.

I put up a few random videos containing things I had found useful not knowing if anyone would watch. I figured nobody would and so could use this beginning time to practice untill I felt comfortable in front of a camera or microphone, critique myself, learn how to opperate in cyberland, and buy better equipment. I did not think within two weeks I would be going to bed with several hundred people per night.

"Hope and Giggles" is an ongoing experiment very subject to change as it is viewer driven. I am asking the question "What would people want to watch and/or listen to that can make their world a better place?" For now the answer has come back as something to fall asleep to, something to laugh at, and something to think about.

I find my product embarassingly amatureish at times and it all leaves much room for improvement but my heart is there and so are the hearts of many viewers. I've learned where good hearts live, good things come about and in a few years, who knows?

You may have noticed ads on my videos and blogs, book reviews where I stand to earn a small commission, and to donate buttons scattered about. I wish I could say I was doing this all for free with no hope of financial gain for myself but that would not be honest in so many ways. I am currently living on a pension from the government for I have a disability that prevents me from having a "day job". It is not only my dream but my resposibility to support myself and my family in any way I am able to do so.

So here it is, the "Hope and Giggles" project. I am learning in public as I go, which can be humbling at times, but it has also been so much fun. When I hear I have helped someone fall asleep, or made them laugh, I am just so darned overjoyed. Someday I may have learned enough to turn this into something really cool. I hope so.

In the meantime, please relax and be loved at the end of your day and that should make your journey a little easier. Love to you all. Jody.

Dumped by Britton Payne

Sometimes the simplest answers are the best. I could write alot about that but a long, complicated explanation of the virtues of simplicity seems to defeat the point of my arguement.

If you are under eighteen, please make sure it is ok with your parents before you buy this book.

Thanks everyone!

Relax You Are Loved

This series of videos is inspired by my most popular video "Sleep Hypnosis and healing for the broken hearted who can't sleep".

My heart is long healed now yet I still enjoy listening to this as feeling loved is one of the most enjoyable sensations I can imagine.

This is not rapid induction hypnosis. It goes deeper than that and is intended to have a more lasting effect. Therefore I thought it best to make this playlist to be sure you are long gone into dreamland before it is finished.

Relax you are loved is a simple and effective philosophy. At bedtime it can sooth your nerves and help you enjoy your sleep and if you can keep that thought and feeling with you the next day, life's frustrations lose their edge. This mindset is a kind, gentle, and very powerful emotional homebase to conduct your affairs from.

Again I would like to thank you for showing intrest in my work. This would all be so dull, boreing, and pointless without you. Sweet dreams and love always. Jody.

If what I have been doing has helped you or improved the quality of your life at all and you would like to make a donation, I would be very grateful. Either way you have my love.

Full Body Relaxation with Magic Wish Fulfillment

This is one of my favorite approaches to hypnosis because it focuses on two very pleasurable areas of your neurology; physical sensation and achievement of goals.
To be guided through the actual tactile expirience of deep relaxation is a very pleasant and healthy way to fall into a deep, high quality, sleep.
When setting out to achieve anything, our mindset is a key element to our success. I am aiming here to create a strong positive neural association between your conscious and unconscious mind and the achievement of your goals.
First and foremost, of course, It is my wish that you feel warm, loved, and comfortable as you drift off into a peaceful nights slumber.
Relax and feel loved. Thank you so much for showing up because this would all be lonely, boring, and pointless without you. Best wishes, Jody.

If this, or any of my other videos, has improved your quality of life and you would like to make donation, I would be very grateful. Either way you have my love. Thanks again. Love Jody.

Sleep Hypnosis For The Broken Hearted and Lonely.

 This is my most popular video and it was my personal favorite untill I made an hour long playlist very similar to this called "Sleep Hypnosis: Relax You Are Loved (emotional healing).
 I cannot credit one particular approach or school of thought for my sleep hypnosis videos as they contain elements of so many hypnotic techiques from the ancient to the most modern. To give some examples of my inspiration I would like to mention Mesmer, Erickson, Buddha, Lao Tzu, and Youtube viewers. Wayne Dyer, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle, and my father, James Whiteley would make the list as well. More names are comming to me now and I realise this list could become cumbersome if I continue.
 I have been facinated with hypnosis, meditation, and many other approaches to non drug induced altered states of consciousness for over thirty years for my own benefit and when I uploaded my first sleep hypnosis video I honestly didn't think anyone would be interested. I knew this worked not only to help me fall asleep feeling wonderfuly loved and comfortable but it also improved my mood around the clock but I didn't think anyone else would try it.
 I can't tell you how honoured and thrilled I am to go to bed with several hundred, or even a thousand people every night! I send a little love to each and every one of you before I go to sleep. I am truly blessed.
 Thank you so much for your love and support. Each one of you is wonderful beyond my wildest dreams.

If my work has helped you and you would like to make a donation, I would be very grateful. You have my love either way. Thank you so much. Love Jody.

Tao 1

Tao Te Ching

Interpretation by Jody Whiteley

First Verse
 A path that can be walked upon is not the enduring and unchanging way.
You cannot speak of it for it has no name.
Names will always change with time but the way endures, unchanging, for all eternity.

This without form or name is the origin of all things.
As we name it it becomes the creator and caretaker of all things.

As we lose our will to desire we begin to understand the great mystery.
Our desire obscures our view of our creator as we see only the products.
The mystery and what it produces are one and the same yet we sepparate them and give them different names.
The unity of these two things is the mystery and the portal to all wonder and understanding.

Second Verse
We all see beauty contrasted by ugliness.
We all know good as good because we have experienced evil.
Being and nonbeing make each other happen.
Difficult and easy give definition to each other.
There is only the long because there is the short
We think of something as high only because we have compared it to something low
Melody and harmony require different notes

One who follows the way is comfortable with contradiction and paradox, detaches from effort, and allows affairs to manage themselves
A wise person teaches the value of not using words by example
All things that show themselves to one with the way are accepted as they are
It is wise not to claim ownership of any of them
As this person works with all things they are allowed to go through their processes and no reward is required
The sage will compete without need of a win, accomplish without stopping to notice achievement, and succeed without self congratulations.

The work is done and forgotten.
It's power remains intact and lasts forever.

Third Verse
Granting status causes discord
Place little value on what is difficult to obtain and save youself from those who would steal it from you.
Do not flaunt what others desire but do not have.
This way their hearts and minds will remain peaceful
A leader knows people with peaceful hearts and minds are easy to manage
The satisfied are niether willful nor ambitious towards their own ends
The healer may then strengthen their bones

When action becomes pure and selfless, cunning and greed are not acted upon
Abstinence from willful action brings about universal good order
Everything settles into it's proper place

Fourth Verse
The Dao is empty and cannot be filled.
When we use it we must also be empty like the origin of all things.
Within it we smooth our sharp edges, simplify the complicated, soften our glare, and settle our discord.
The way of life will always be pure and still.

It exists hidden and subtle to the sences.
Who created this?
Was it here before god?

Fifth Verse
