Some of the questions I’m asked ~

With the opening of my film now in the US to sell-out screenings, I’ve been doing Q&As after the movie, but also lots of media interviews. And I thought I would share with you some of the more interesting questions I’ve been asked, and how I’ve responded.

INTERVIEWER: Are intuition and common sense the same thing?

MY RESPONSE: Actually, they are the opposite thing. Common-sense comes from the rational self, not the intuitive self, and it’s based on past experience, logic, and often times tried and true accepted beliefs. Intuition isn’t based on past experience – it works outside of time and space, and it doesn’t draw from logic or the intellect. Common sense works to keep you safe, keep you contained, it has you doing what you’ve done in the past, or what others have done in the past. It’s limited to what’s gone before. Intuition is limitless. It asks that you follow paths you’ve never followed before. It leads to true discovery, to originality, to adventure. Common sense contracts you. Intuition expands you.

INTERVIEWER: Can intuition be used to harm someone, or can it harm yourself?

MY RESPONSE: Intuition can never be harmful, to you or to others. It comes from Source, from Spirit, and it can’t be used for anything other than love. It can’t be corrupted or manipulated into any kind of injurious act. If someone gets “messages” that ask you to harm someone else, or even think harmful thoughts, then that’s not intuition. It’s an aspect of your being that it rooted in the “I,” or the ego. Intuition exists outside of ego, and only ever works in the Light. 

INTERVIEWER: How do you know that the “voice” that you hear is your intuition, and not just some random thought/voice that you’ve made up yourself?

MY RESPONSE: Intuition leaves you with no doubt. It is immediate, and it’s messaging is unambiguous. And it’s accompanied by a sense of calm, and knowing. Your ego-voice leaves you in doubt, in confusion, and it’s often wrapped in fear. Your intuition voice is the antithesis of fear. The purpose of fear is to create more fear, as Paul Selig’s Guides say. The purpose of intuition is to keep you healthy and safe, so that you can fulfil your true purpose in life.

INTERVIEWER: Isn’t intuition just another word for instinct?

MY RESPONSE: No, they are totally different. The two words are not interchangeable. Instinct is primitive, it’s animalistic, it’s a survival mechanism that is body based. It’s a function of the body. Intuition is timeless, limitless, it’s a divine messaging service and it’s a function of the soul.

INTERVIEWER: In your film you never talk about meditation as being a way to access your intuition. Why not?

MY RESPONSE: Because I didn’t want to scare people off. You don’t need to meditate to access your intuition. You can access your intuition standing in the shower or having a bath, or walking along a beach or swimming, or hiking in the woods. You don’t need to sit crossed legged in a cave for hours chanting Om and clutching a crystal to become intuitive. The concept of meditation is terrifying for many people – particularly men – and I want the film to encourage men to become more intuitive. 

These are just some of the questions I get asked. I don’t set myself up as an expert on this stuff by any means, but after 18 years reading and researching and trying to figure out what that voice was that saved my life, I have come to certain conclusions that make sense to me. And my job, as I see it, is to communicate that as wide as possible.

 

Cinema on Demand release for PGS in the US!

I’m delighted to announce that Gathr Films has come on board to release my film PGS – Intuition is your Personal Guidance System in the US.

Whilst in Los Angeles last week, Jennifer and I met with the President of Gathr, Jake Craven. He saw the film, loved it, and now they’ll be releasing it theatrically, on demand, throughout the United States and its territories.

I’ve chosen to release the film via Cinema on Demand because I believe it’s the best way to get the film out to its audience – and to give the investors the best possibility of making some money out of it!

The beauty of Cinema on Demand is that the rights aren’t cross-collateralised. In other words, profits made from one type of release aren’t “crossed” against losses from another. Having now made 16 feature films as a producer and director, I’ve seen how the Hollywood “creative accounting” system works – and believe me, it doesn’t work in favour of producers or investors!

Going Cinema on Demand, we get to release the film theatrically to an audience that wants to see it – that demands to see it!and we get to keep the Video on Demand rights for our 444 release at 4:44pm on 4/4 – being April 4th 2018. We also keep all other rights, such as various TV rights.

We are in the early stages of locking in Cinema on Demand for Australia and New Zealand, and possibly UK and some other territories as well. I’ll let you know when those deals are done.

We are also bringing on board a team of publicists out of New York, and a couple of social media mavens – one out of Prague, the other out of India – to begin rolling out a global social media campaign, to be coordinated by our Impact Producer, Kerrin McNeil.

As for when the film will begin its Cinema on Demand run in the US – well, we’ll be figuring that out in the next little while, but most probably some time in January 2018.

Jennifer and I are thrilled to be working with the team at Gathr. They are good people, they love the film and see a big audience for it in the US, and we’re excited at what the future holds for this groundbreaking film on intuition.

PGS website now live!

Our PGS website is now online and live!

Here it is:
http://www.pgsintuition.com/

If you view the website on a desktop or laptop, you get a really cool parallax effect as you scroll down. Try it!  (It doesn’t work on “touch” devices though, like tablets or iPhones.)

The website at this stage is informational only – and basic information at that – but as we get closer to the release next year at 4:44pm on the 4th of the 4th, the website will become the platform for release. It will also have news of preview screenings, etc, and further information about the making of the film.

And soon there will also be a trailer on the website.

Natacha my brilliant website designer once again has done a stellar job. Thanks also to Aldous Massie, who designed the key art and worked with Natacha to design the look of the site, consistent with the look of the film.

Today Jennifer and I leave for the US for four weeks, for a series of Work-in-Progress screenings of the film – the first being at a major International Holistic Medicine Summit at Kansas City next week, hosted by Dr. Norman Shealy, considered the “father of holistic medicine” in the west.

The Summit will also feature, amongst other luminaries, Caroline Myss. Both Caroline and Norm feature prominently in my film.

I’ll be posting regularly on this blog, and on Facebook – I’m pretty confident in the film now. I think it’s in good shape. Even so, these next round of screenings are going to be very telling…
