Jeremiah Rangel, the creator of Intra Awareness, a four-pillar system that connects the body, mind, consciousness, and wealth. Jeremiah is a professional coach and the trainer of hypnosis and neurolinguistic programming, or NLP. Welcome to the show, Jeremiah,
[00:00:58.750] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Thank you for having me.
[00:00:59.820] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Yes. So to get started, let's first of all, talk about what is neuro-linguistic programming or NLP? It's been around for nearly five decades, been around since the early 70s, but many people haven't quite heard of it yet.
[00:01:13.750] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:01:14.370] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Explain to people what is NLP.
[00:01:16.470] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
So NLP is the simple way to explain it. It's kind of the way I use it and teach it. It's the users manual for your mind. Like you said, been around since late 1970s. And basically, God start people that were in the field psychology that were kind of technicians and look for patterns and find out that. How does the mind work? You don't have to necessarily be psychologist to understand how to use the mind. Just like you don't have to be a personal trainer to work out.
So NLP is simply a methodology or a system to help people understand how their mind works. And if you understand how something works, you can actually use it to get what you want out of life.
[00:01:53.920] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so Neuro? Talks about the brain.
[00:01:56.740] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Neural isn't the neural pathways. So the breaking down neuro-linguistic  programming is the neuro or the neurons. When you think about something, when you think about the radio, maybe above the age of ten, you're going to have probably a picture in your mind. There's going to be neural pathways that fires for it. If you think about your favorite color when you're a kid, different neuropathways, think about your favorite song. It's just the brain sends neural pathways, how to get the information. So that's how we access the information and our long term memory storage.

And so those are the neurons with it. The linguistic is the language that the brain speaks in the mind speaks. It's how we put meaning to things. And then the programming is basically like a computer programming. We set up computers to do what we wanted to do. If we wanted to play means if we wanted to retrieve files, if you wanted to do different things, the same thing is essentially for the mind, so we can program our mind positive habits, positive outlook, positive thoughts. So we can actually tap into the users manual of how it works and to be able to use it to what we want.
[00:02:55.850] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so this really kind of goes back to I think about if you're in a situation, especially in the workplace where you've had some negative experiences and it's really easy to get into that negativity, it's really easy to continue to think about and talk about that negativity.
[00:03:12.630] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Play the same tape over and over again. Yes.
[00:03:14.640] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. So you say tape.
[00:03:16.790] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
That's one way to say people play the same tapes, then the people may be the same conversations, playing the same story over and over the same scenario. So essentially, our mind has kind of two different components to it the conscious mind, which is like a computer screen, which is what we're immediately focusing on right now, what we're aware of, what's on the screen. And then we have the unconscious mind, which is like the storage, all the memory, the gigs, the Rams, all the background stuff that we don't see that's now on the screen.
So our unconscious mind release since birth is always recording information. And the reason why it needs to record, if you think of somebody that maybe the brain or their mind isn't working optimally, like somebody who hasn't be dementia here, they might not be able to have access to information they want. So people that, let's say, don't have dementia can access the information inside through our unconscious mind, which is like our memory storage. And so the problem that people get into is if people go through experiences, if you think about a memory, this is something that really blew my mind the first time Candi when I heard it, that the memories that we have in our minds is not the real event.
When you think about where you were, when your first kiss or the first time you went down a slide or your first time paying the wheel of the car, that's not really happening right now. If you think about even your car itself and the car is not in the room and you can't physically see it, it's not the car. It's your mental picture of the car. So a lot of times people confuse memories for the real thing. And memories can be really interesting and tricky. Some people can remember themselves in the car driving, like seeing the steering wheel.
Other people can remember themselves outside of the car looking at themselves, which didn't really happen. People didn't record something outside of themselves, per se. So the mental tapes that people play, aren't it's not the real events? That the real thing that happened if their perception of it, which can be beneficial if you want to make it positive. But it can be limiting if it's negative, and if it's negative and playing over and over again, which is what the mind does is it brings things up until we deal with them.
If we don't deal with things, fully, process them that are unconscious mind. Okay. No. Now it's time to do okay. Now it's no deal with it now.
[00:05:25.150] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So even if you have, like, a memory or you get triggered by something, because whenever you have a negative event that happens, something happens at work and somebody trigger something in you. It's really not about that person of what they said, but it's bringing up something from that memory bank.
[00:05:43.550] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:05:44.210] - Candi Broeffle, Host
In an unconscious way.
[00:05:45.770] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Correct. Triggers. Essentially, in my line of work, there's strategies to triggers, meaning there's the external force, somebody, it's a sound, a person, a situation starts to trigger, and then there's the response. So the person says something, then I feel this way and I think this and I do this, maybe a Downer spiral. But yes, the people that this is really where my students are my clients. I look for leaders that that step up with ownership, ownership is no excuses. Whatever hand carding at dealt in life, I'm still going to find a way.
I'm going to find a solution. And for my students and my clients, the triggers those people are, we express gratitude for them, maybe not immediately, right away, but at a certain point, get to a point of gratitude. Thank you for bringing this up for me, whether it's indirectly or directly your intention, the person that brings up the triggers brings up something for us to take a look at. Is this the way we use it and how we walk the walk, so to speak. And then once that gets triggered, is our responsibility.
And where does it come from? We get to not necessarily traditional psychology, like, why do you feel this way, which could make it stronger, the reason, the meaning we put to it. But it's more like, curiously, how long have you felt this way before and what is the root of this and what would happen if you cleared it? Got the unconscious level, the place where it got created in the first place, and it might be mentally going back to the time period when it got created.
Most adult problems. I found most of adults that have problems. It's not really the current problem has something from childhood or something younger. And where I come in is I find out exactly like a computer. I find out the root file that would cause the time period where it's stored in the mind, and then we can actually upgrade it from there.
[00:07:31.280] - Candi Broeffle, Host
One of the things that I've been learning about, especially most recently in the last couple of years or so is just and we always go back to our childhood about things that happen. But it's really important for people to understand that kids don't have the ability to have logical thought until we're in our 20s. And so everything is based on the emotion of what is happening at that moment. It's how you feel at that moment that happens. And that's why the trigger is so so strong for us.
So when somebody, when something happens in a workplace or something happens with a family member and it's triggering you, like you said, that's a great time to be able to really just look at it and be thankful for it, that it's coming into your awareness. Too often we start to blame the other person for what they've done to us. But if you're really, really conscious about it and that's what you help people do, correct.
[00:08:27.120] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Correct. Yeah. Blaming somebody else for our emotions and responsibilities. The way I don't look at it, it's not necessarily good, bad, right or wrong. It's just not helpful. It gives power away. So the thing where I come in with triggers are kind of neat because in my line of work is because sometimes we don't change the trigger. We change the response of a coworker. I'm just making up something goofy, but every time comes in every Wednesday and eats your yogurt in the refrigerator. I don't know. It has your name on it.
It and it brings up something. Maybe you're the youngest child of five and that you got your food eating and the scarcity. Whatever the story is.
[00:09:05.770] - Candi Broeffle, Host
You always felt disrespected.
[00:09:07.240] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Correct. You just respected me by eating my yogurt, and maybe they were just were hungry, had low blood chick who knows the story. But the trigger, instead of being upset and feeling disrespected, it could be just maybe having gratitude. I'm so grateful that and it's not like, necessarily conscious. This goes with words hardwired, so to speak. So I'm really grateful that you have that I have an extra yogurt to spare. Or so you can sometimes keep the trigger, but change the response. Or you can get rid of the trigger altogether.
So I don't always necessarily get rid of triggers. Sometimes the triggers if a person annoys you 100,000 times a day and that triggers really working well for you, it's just you don't like the response or what it's triggering. So we might keep the trigger and maybe express gratitude every day or get into feeling confident or whatever it is the person gets to choose to decide what they want to do.
[00:09:58.210] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So one of the things that I always try to remind people of is we really have. And I've known this myself just because I've been married for 30 years and I cannot change my husband. Right. I tried. This is not very successful and I'm sure he would love to be able to change many things about me, but we really don't have the ability to change the other person. The only thing we have the ability to do is control ourselves and to change our responds.
[00:10:25.200] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Exactly. Something interesting about that. This is what I heard years ago, studying marriages and family dynamics, but I heard that I don't know if it was from men for Mars woman for Venus, but on average and miss no true these days, but at one time, on average, when men and women, let's say, got married, a woman, not not every women, but in general, that say, like, hey, all kind of mold you shape, you, guide you into the person I want. And then the man was more like, I don't want you to change you to look like this fit in the same dress, all that stuff which neither one of them are true or it is really possible or probable.
But statistically, what I say is especially working with couples. Let's say I'm working with a wife and say, say, like, hey, can you help my husband and say, Well, I can't actually help your husband is not here, but I can help the way you feel about it. 90% of the time when the person changes the other person, miraculously, mysteriously, coincidentally, stops doing that response.
[00:11:19.220] - Candi Broeffle, Host
We're going to talk more about that because that is extremely interesting. So for listeners who want to know more about NLP and the work you do where can they go?

Intraawareness.Com. I-N-T-R-A Awareness.Com
[00:11:29.990] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Great. So when we come back, we are going to continue to talk about NLP and how it's used for creating a more healthy and happier life for yourself. For more information or to read Natural Awakenings online, visit NaturalTwin Cities.Com will be right back.
Welcome back to Green Tea Conversations, where we delve into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine and talk to the professionals. We share their expertise on natural health with you. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle. And today we're talking with Jeremiah Rangel, professional coach, and trainer of NLP and the creator of Intro Awareness, which is located in northeast Minneapolis. So thank you for being with us today.
[00:15:18.260] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Thanks for having me again.
[00:15:19.990] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So just before the break, you were telling us about NLP and kind of getting into the different ways that our brain starts to process information and store information and how NLP can help. So what are the typical? What are some of the ailments that people may come to you for that? You find NLP is especially effective with.
[00:15:43.110] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Yeah, that's a great question. So first I like to differentiate is it more for business or more for personal life just because it helps me get in the right direction? I have business coaching, executive suite, CEOs, things I work with or people trying to transition from one career to another or just for personal. So I try to separate it first. Most time it's always personal.
[00:16:02.730] - Candi Broeffle, Host
But let's talk about personal because we want to get into business in a bit. But let's talk about persona for personal.
[00:16:09.470] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
We can kind of go to a to Z. People that want to perform better at work, want to communicate better in their relationships, people that it can get as extreme as PTSD as people have Postmate stress disorder, which means in my world, they went through an experience. Their unconscious mind is recording it. They didn't have the ability to process it in conscious mind keeps bringing up to become processed. PTSD is one allergies. Actually, a lot of people that are allergic, it's kind of a phobia response, and that can be kind of cleared.
Then 15 minutes can be. They'd see confidence issues. A lot of people that want to get more confidence in specific areas of life. It's an emotional state that maybe some people in sports or in life people he's talking about being the zone in the flow. But people don't know honestly know how to get there. And we actually give them a strategy of actually how to get there to be in an emotional state for an interview or in life command. So it could be traumatic things, but it doesn't have to be.
It could be like, hey, how do I get more strategies to take myself more results so it could be more strategies, could be more healing. It could be more structure and clarity.
[00:17:18.320] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Tell us how it's used for wanting to achieve goals. So say, I came to you and said, I want to become better at being a public speaker. I have a fear about being in front of a lot of people.
[00:17:32.700] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Perfect. Is this true? You have fear, or are you saying somebody hypothetically? Okay, I didn't think so because I didn't experience that with you. But okay, let's say hypothetically, somebody says, I want to be a public speaker because this is common. And I think that a lot of people have fear for. So first of all, I want to no information. So what would you get out of being a public speaker? And what would that look like to you? I'm going to ask them questions that gives me more of a picture.
But then more of a picture. And what would that do for you? So that's kind of the outcome if you go into the future, visualize yourself five months, six months, five years from now. When you are that public speaker, what does that look like? So we start to associate them into the positive emotional state, what that would look like. But then let us just say fear comes up, right? So fear is coming up for me. So how do you know when to be afraid? You you weren't afraid of being a public speaker before.
You weren't just talking about it. So something had to trigger that. So when did this fear of being a public speaker start for you? When is the first time you thought about that in your life? Usually the first impression, right? The first impression of things get recorded, stamped in people's minds. And that's what people respond and react to. Most people don't actually respond to what's happening. They respond to their perception of the program. So it's happening.
[00:18:47.220] - Candi Broeffle, Host
It's interesting that you say that because I go back to a prior life. I worked for a community college and we had a lot of people who had just a fear of math, like they just would say, oh, I can't do math. I'm not any good at doing math. And as you talk to them, you start to discover that's usually something that happened in grade school or they were told by someone that they were not good at math, and they carried it with them until they're in their 40s and 50s and beyond.
[00:19:16.360] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Well, there's a scene that we have is all behaviors learn behavior. So somebody might come up to me and say, I'm not good at math, and I say, oh, interesting. I'm really curious. I found out that judgmental or limiting things doesn't really help anybody. So I adopted myself years ago. Curious. So somebody says, I'm not very good at math. I'm like, oh, interesting. So where did you learn that? And it actually kind of Googles the mind of the information of where it comes from. I never thought about it because some of these questions that I asked people, most people don't ask these questions, how have you felt that way, which gives them more in the time?
Or where did you learn that which is kind of the location or possibly the person? So this is something goofy that I say. So sometimes people have heard from their parents a long time ago or somebody yelled at them, let's say, making up something. A teacher yelled at them so you can mentally possibly possibly go back in time and say, Well, can you imagine going back in time to that time period when that happens and maybe visualize and imagine because we're just imagine this anyway, helium coming into the room.
So whoever was yelling at you said that, imagine what they would sound like, sound like Mickey Miles or many miles or somebody else. And it usually causes people to laugh and then see things differently and instantly they change and respond differently. So it's really about getting, like a computer to the root file in the mind, to the root cost.
[00:20:37.010] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So the interesting thing with this and it goes back to the neuro part of this, I imagine, is our brain or our body doesn't realize that what we perceive to be happening is not really happening at that moment. So we have the same reactions that we would if it actually happened at that moment.
[00:20:53.910] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:20:54.890] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So as you were talking about helping people get into the future and placing them there and kind of giving them that visual, your body then responds that way too. It can respond in that positive way.
[00:21:05.810] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Correct. I can respond positively negatively if it's her goals and outcomes. I usually want to see. What would that look like in the future? Let's have a picture for it. Because one of the things that a lot of times people say I want something. Well, what does that look like? I don't know. Okay. How are you going to get there? I don't know. Okay, cool. You need a strategy for it. So it just starts to ask questions and get that. But then a lot of times what people want in the future, what stops them as something from the past.
So the future visualizations in the past memories. So usually upgrade those memories because since no, not one memory is the real thing. It's a perception in synthetic. It's made up which if it's helpful, keep it if it's nostalgic. Awesome. Great. But if it's limiting, if it causes you to feel like compressed or shrink person, if it causes any limitations, let's upgrade it. Because if this is the cause of what's plan in your mind and how people respond, then that's where I get excited. Because this is the problem.
If we upgrade it, then there's the solution.
[00:22:03.610] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And when you say upgrade it, what do you mean?
[00:22:05.500] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Well, if a picture is, for example, like limiting response from the past is like a movie. This movie keeps playing over and over the scene. Well, what if we were to still pose it? If we were to rewind it and still pause it two months before it happens? What if we were? If it's in color in the mind, the mind puts meaning to things, the mine things in some of the anatomy of the mind. The mind thinks in pictures and images, there sounds, there's smells things from the memories, and you start to change some of those settings.
Like if you had a scary movie that you're watching and you started turning the volume down might not be a scary. Turning to black and white might not be a scary. You make it really tinted. You can do the same thing with the mind. Can change the memory, the structure of the memories or how it's coded it changes the response. The problem is only the problem as the way it's coded.
[00:22:55.400] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Interesting. Okay. So for listeners who want to learn more about NLP and the work you do, what is your website? Where can they find you?
[00:23:02.770] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:23:09.540] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay, so this morning we're talking to NLP trainer Jeremiah Rangel, and when we come back, we're going to dig a little deeper into how this practice is used for increased performance. For more information or to read Natural Awakenings online, visit You can find a podcast of the show on AM950Radio.Com on iTunes or anywhere you get your podcasts. You're listening to Green Tea Conversations on a 950 The Progressive Voice of Minnesota, and we will be right back.
Welcome back to Green Tea Conversations, where we delve into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine and talk to the professionals who share their expertise on natural health with you. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle. And today we're talking with Jeremiah Rangel, professional coach, and trainer of NLP neuro-linguistic programming and creator of IntraAwareness, which is located right here in northeast Minneapolis. Thank you for being with us today.
[00:27:53.810] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Thank you for having me.
[00:27:54.860] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So just before the break, you were telling us what NLP is and some of the ways that it's used for increasing performance or for overcoming some of the fears or anxieties that we might have. How does NLP help us to achieve goals?
[00:28:13.260] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
With goals are kind of interesting. There's a difference in the NLP world. We talk about the difference between goals and outcomes. So goals are like, I want to lose £30. Okay, that's a goal. It's measurable. But outcomes are more of like what you're going to get from the emotional state, the secondary tertiary thing. So if I lose £30, I might have more confidence. I might start dating again. My health will go up. So it's instead of goals. A lot of people can make goals. But if goals don't have the why the emotional driver behind it, it's a low percentage is going to succeed.
So I like to find out more of what going into the goals. Like this is your goal. So why? What's behind it? What would that do for you? What would that look like? Who else would be affected by it? How is it going to affect the world, your performance, and then get people really kind of pumped up with it? But that's not the only thing. Okay, so who or what? Are you going to need to support that? So just because you have a goal, that's a what?
But then when? So this is kind of like getting to the structure of it. So when would you want to achieve this goal and then it's getting it? So it's finding all the holes in the game so we can plug it all up and get success. And who are you going to need to help you to support that? Because most people really we can't do a lot of things by ourselves. We can't do things without the sun, without other people, without somebody making a close paving the road.
So we need other people. So who is your accountability team as well? That's a really important one.
[00:29:37.660] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And you also talk about again, the or the mental blocks that you can have.
[00:29:42.910] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:29:43.630] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And in doing gold. So let's take, for example, I don't know, weight loss because weight loss is a big one for me. So what would be perhaps an example of a mental block that might be causing people to not be able to reach their goals.
[00:29:59.480] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
For weight loss? It's a couple of things I would say, probably for sure. I would say really high percentage that a person has a negative or limiting self-image about themselves. So it's really hard. The body follows a lot of times with the mind size or thinks so. That's one thing. And a lot of times if a person has extra weight, it could be as simple as they just don't. They haven't learned about proper nutrition exercise. That could be it. Most of the time. Weight is just holding and on to something of protection.
And people do the best with what resources they have and usually first survival. So it could be something with the relationship with the parents. It could be hereditary, meaning this is the way we've always been. But just because that's the way we've always done, it doesn't mean you can't change it, but you have to get to the roof file the cause of where it is. But with wait. Usually, it's upgrading the self-image, but it could be a belief, which is, I don't know, 15 minutes to change.
It could be a value. Might be a couple hours to change. Could be identity, which could take months or more time to change. So it depends. The deeper it is when a person learned and started operating this way, the younger it is, you have to go to that age or that part.
[00:31:08.360] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay, great. Share an example of a client who wanted to achieve a goal without actually sharing who the client is or giving us any of that information. But just a goal that they may have wanted to reach and how that looked.
[00:31:24.850] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
So well. There's a recent client and this isn't common because this is very common, I should say, but it could be something is so marriages, for example, sometimes people want better communication in their marriages and usually in a marriage, in a two-person situation or a family situation, it really takes one person to start to get the information maybe to go outside the relationship or marriage. That, for example, if the other person isn't very good at communicating, you might have to go outside the marriage, a book, a workshop, a coach and get this information, start to interject it.
So that had a lot of people who want to get better communicating. They want to become better. Parents want most of the people they want to break the patterns that's been going on generationally. So their kids don't have to. Those are really, really huge drivers, a motivator for a lot of parents.
[00:32:14.510] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And so what might that look like if they come to you in there?
[00:32:18.300] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Well, we've always done it this. Well, I get more information, but let's say a wife, my mom did it this way. My grandma did it this way. Well, how did it make you feel? It doesn't make me feel very good. So what are some other ways that would be better? Or who are some other models in your life that you've had or you've seen that you could model after? And how do they speak? What do they talk? And of course, I can give information. But if I'm one source of information and they have a lot of sources.
So I really teach people to use their resources and think outside the box, not just think but behavior respond. For example, a lot of times for people who work out, they go to work and they have a specific work close. If you come home and you don't change the clothes, there's still going to be a big part of it that's going to be operating that way. So the first thing to do is to change your clothes. When you get done with work, that's not your work close to.
You're going to treat your spouse or your family members differently than people at work. There's a woman that I worked with who was a high-powered executive and she would get home emboss the whole family. And the family didn't like it. Some of the information has changed her clothes. And if your kids are on the floor, the little girls here kicking their legs and draw on the floor, get on the floor with them and start to draw. And she did that. Her and her child kind of really bursted through the family that didn't feel intimidated with her anymore.
And just so you're changing your physiology, changing your clothes, changing their strategies. That's huge.
[00:33:39.830] - Candi Broeffle, Host
That is huge. And that's such an interesting way to look at it because we put on that kind of armor when we're going into the workplace. And if you haven't released that by the time you get home, then you can't be in a different way with your family.
[00:33:53.180] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:33:53.690] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So you do a lot of work with executives with teams, correct. So what would be a typical thing that somebody would call you in to say, work with a team in their organization?
[00:34:06.810] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Generally speaking, something's not working within the team or not working to the degree that the leader of the team wants to get to and really great leaders don't makeup things. They don't make excuses or blame other people that say, you know what this is the results that we want, and I'm going to find it. So one of the things I do is I do assessment. If I'm working with the team, they do a similar assessment with a person or couples. But an assessment, what do you want?
What is the outcome that you want? What are you going to need to support you to get there and what's basically stopping and blocking you from having it now. So we need to make upgrades within the team and usually do an assessment to find on how is it and then what can I do differently to be able to make the changes? So an assessment is the first thing is somebody pulling back the curtains and finding out what's what and it's never about judgment or blame. It's really about what works and what doesn't work.
We really want to do more of what works and less of what doesn't work.
[00:35:01.820] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Okay. And so one of the things that I find so interesting about what you do is you do NLP, but you've taken it kind of a step further and you have what's called oneness NLP.
[00:35:15.190] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:35:15.580] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So what is oneness NLP?
[00:35:17.530] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
So traditional NLP is more about the brain, and it's more about doing things. In the late 1970s, it's evolved to the second generation in the mid-90s to humanistic neuro-linguistic psychology, which was people that are more in the field of psychology, wanted to use this in a psychology, make it more humanistic instead of treating people in a way like robots or computers that there's a person attached to it. I've evolved into a third generation in 2015 of oneness oneness is just if you take away all the pictures, the labels of the mind, of the thoughts, there's this presence.
When people have their needs met, they can't hurt themselves or other people. There's a oneness, a connection that we have inside. So NLP, in a way, is about how the mind works, the strategy of it. The oneness is really more about the source which created the mind. It doesn't make sense in my mind to teach about the mind without going beyond it a little bit. So oneness NLP is the first integrated the spiritual and psychological technologies that that's what a lot of people like myself found that was missing from traditional NLP.
The spiritual component. There's things that within the mind, you can say beyond the mind, but to actually have the experience, that's where the one that comes in and it actually works better, more holistic. A lot of the cutting edge companies are going in this direction where it's really about the people having to get their needs met, which they're going to have a lot more bigger output.
[00:36:43.470] - Candi Broeffle, Host
Well, really, if you think about it, even in the business world, we keep going back to now it's really important that we understand our wife doing something right. And so our Y is really that moral or that the virtuous part of why we're actually wanting to do something. So that brings in the spirituality without actually saying spirituality.
[00:37:06.330] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Yeah, it's the driver and everybody has a wife. You don't have a Y. And if your wise not strong enough, you won't achieve the goal.
[00:37:13.920] - Candi Broeffle, Host

[00:37:16.410] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
And that's where old school business systems, whereas you squeeze everything you can get out of people, which isn't a very good business system. But if you can find out what is there, why it's the business is number one rule in businesses to make money. Otherwise, it's a hobby or for funsies. So that's what I said. But if you're using each other, you're working with each other, not using as a negative, but using as positive, using the vehicle to help you go on better vacations or get to a promotion and the company.
You guys need each other. So really, it's not about sides. It's about roles and parts and different people are different roles. It's getting everyone we're on the same team, head in the same direction. And if not everyone's on that, then there might be better teams for you somewhere else. Doesn't have to be hard feelings. This is where our vision is. This is our mission for business or personal, and this is our values. And this is where we're heading towards. And it needs to be constant evolving.
If it's system or a relationship or marriage or a person gets stagnant, there's not going go result. There has to be constant movement or growth. Otherwise, there's going to be feedback from the universe, the Mayan relationships that it's not going to work. It's like an error and computer can be error in life.
[00:38:24.720] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So when it comes to working in businesses and working with executives. So you work with a lot of top executives.
[00:38:30.570] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:38:31.330] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And what do you find is the thing that you work with both.
[00:38:36.480] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
The biggest thing is the analogy I give is like being a King, right? If you're a King or a Queen, right. You're the leader of this land, so to speak, or being like the CEO or present of a company. And if you are supposed to know all the answers, if you're supposed to know everything, you're going to be very limited. So the most like so many people sitting like Henry Ford or a lot of people like Henry Ford, for example, got a lot of people in Steve Jobs, got a lot of people that are smarter than them to do the job like you're smarter than me.
So you do it. You tell me what to do. So it's really about finding what are the needs of the person of the CEO, the executive, the leader. They just call it leadership. What do they need? What's not working? What can they do differently? Because a lot of times they can learn and model things, but if they can't do it, hire out, hiring somebody that can do it. Do you really want to be become the world's best? Communicator or do you want to get communicate enough and then get somebody to be able to do that for you?
So it's really getting people's custom needs to what they want and what's going to work best.
[00:39:37.110] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So that they can be most effective and
[00:39:39.360] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
They can do what they're best at and other people can do what they're best at yes.
[00:39:43.110] - Candi Broeffle, Host
And I think that's really important, especially with leaders, is that they learn to lead the way that they were meant to lead, not by modeling somebody else, how they live, because that doesn't feel authentic. And it isn't easy for us to do.
[00:39:56.590] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:39:58.000] - Candi Broeffle, Host
When we come back, we're going to continue talking about this. We're going to talk about some classes that you have coming up as well, which is really exciting. So to make an appointment, Jeremiah or one of the other oneness NLP practitioners they can visit that are in your business. They can visit

[00:40:21.680] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest

Welcome back to Green Tea Conversations, where we delve into the pages of Natural Awakenings magazine and talk to the professionals who share their expertise on natural health with you. I'm your host, Candi Broeffle. And today we're talking with Jeremiah Rangel, professional coach, and trainer of NLP and the creator of IntraAwareness, located right in northeast Minneapolis. Welcome back to the show, Jeremiah.
[00:44:20.600] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Thank you, Candi.
[00:44:21.930] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So we've been talking about neuro-linguistic programming or NLP and your personalized approach, which is called Oneness NLP, and how it's used to help your clients the better, richer healthier lives. In 2017, over 3.1 million opioid prescriptions were dispensed in Minnesota.
[00:44:43.620] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:44:44.990] - Candi Broeffle, Host
As a society, we have a great deal of pain, both physical, mental, spiritual, emotional, and for people who are looking for a more natural approach to pain, how can NLP help them?
[00:44:58.490] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
This is what gets interesting. I'll try to give a big idea in the small chunks as much as possible. But what I found to be true is that most physical pain isn't physically rooted. It's manifest physically meaning if there's a physical expression of pain, I call it disease, not disease like it has to be a cancer melanoma, just disease can get gas it and it hurts. It could be disease anywhere. The body is not operating optimally. If there's something wrong within the body, or if there's something, there's any disease in the body, there's something limiting within the mind.
There's always that. And sometimes maybe do a cleanse or do a workout program, change your diet. That could be the solution that could help. But more times, if you change it within your mind, the body follows quicker. So if a person doesn't deal with something or learn something in the physical world, well, it comes over from the psychological, the psychological world. If it doesn't get addressed, it goes over physically. But then we talked about it spiritually. If it doesn't get addressed or connected, spiritually goes over to psychological and then goes to physical.
What that means is from the physical there's disease, the body on operating optimally psychologically. There's maybe a limiting belief or limiting program or limitation in the mind about self or others, or the way life is spiritually. There's a part of them that feels disconnected from the source of whatever created them, whatever they choose to call it. So it could be going deep and connecting them to that spiritual connection, if you will. It could be upgrading the program in their mind or could be doing literally some physical things.
So how I operate is I ask questions. I don't come on from an outside source and try to say, you need to do this until I get information. Usually, I tap into people's inner intelligence. Their unconscious mind is connected to their higher consciousness. So people know it's just that the problem that most people have is they're disconnected from their inner knowing. So I really connected them to the inner knowing kind of Google that or channel that or ask that. And the answer is right there. And this shift could happen pretty quick.
[00:47:08.160] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So I think one of the I was just listening on the radio the other day on another station about pain management. And one of the things we tend to as a society want to just eliminate pain, right? We want it to go away completely. And so we'll take anything we can in order to help us to do that, whether it's Tylenol or Advil or if it's going into the more strong prescription drugs for pain, how can you use NLP for managing pain? So instead of trying to eliminate it completely?
Are there things? Are there techniques that people can do if they have, say, back pain that they're struggling with?
[00:47:57.270] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Yes. First of all, I'm definitely not an extremist in saying no medication ever or medication all the time for the rest of your life. So it's really about a balance. But pain, if you're going to be a human being on Earth, you're going to have pain, and we can't get rid of pain. And here's why pain is a check engine light in the body. It's saying, pay attention. We don't pay attention. We pay with pain. It's your unconscious mind, a check engine light. So I like pain in the sounds explain a little bit more, but I tell people I like pain because I listen to it.

Not that I inflict pain or want other people to be in pain, but if someone's in pain, I'm respecting that part. Great. Let's find out what's the message that we don't have to experience this anymore. So there's going to be several techniques, whether I ask a person. So what does that look like? What does that pain look like? It's just like this big giant black ball that's resting on my shoulders. Okay, well, what if we were to turn the colors of the ball? What if we were to shrink it down and move it farther away and make it pink all instantly?
The pain could be gone in seconds, or it could be something like, no, I have to exercise. The pain will continue to be there until I get off my butt and actually get out of the house and start to work out. So it's not up to me. Pain can literally go away in seconds, even if people have had it for decades. I've seen that it's possible, but it's not like that every time. So it's really getting the lesson behind the pain, the message behind the pain.
And once you receive the message, you no longer need the teacher.
[00:49:23.400] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So you have some classes coming up that people if they're interested in learning more or less interested in just understanding and IP better. You have some classes coming up, and I believe you have 101. That's starting next weekend.
[00:49:39.890] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Yes, on the 15th, 16th, and 17th. So what we did is we created a 101 exactly like you said, for people to dip their toes into the intro. One is pulled, so to speak, so they can just try it out for a weekend to see what it's all about. And my job is to clear as much. I'm the trainer, so I'm actually going to be there. It's not like a bait and switch where I'm going to say something and somebody else is there. I'm there. And I put 100% of my skills and resources into clearing as much as possible, educating as much as possible, and giving people as much to take away so they can start to apply it in their life right away.
[00:50:12.440] - Candi Broeffle, Host
So just to be clear and just to be honest and transparent about everything, I have attended your weekend class and thoroughly enjoyed it and just very much highly recommend it to people who are interested in learning more. And it is kind of the first step that people can take. So you actually have a certification as well.
[00:50:32.400] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
Correct. People can move on. If you could do it for your own personal growth and your own education knowledge, you could do it. If you want to be certified to practice with other other people, you could get certified and do it. It's just a little bit more standards and take a testing out. Then there's also, if you want the people that are getting coaching or already coaches, it's pretty much any coaching book out there says if you don't have NLP or at a fundamental disadvantage, but I would actually go for in life.
This is psychological technology that I feel everyone should learn. I feel like everyone should have it in schools, and that's why I'm going to do it my best to help as many people as I can to give people like the listeners the advantage to clear things in your life and do what you're here to do these happy and successful as possible because that's going to make a better world.
[00:51:17.190] - Candi Broeffle, Host
One of the things that I always tell my clients when I'm working with coaching clients is that the most important thing a leader needs to know is themselves.
[00:51:27.350] - Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
[00:51:29.100] - Candi Broeffle, Host
NLP is a great way to really understand who you are and why you are the way you are and why you ask the way you are.
Yes, it's definitely not the end B, but it's the most standalone accelerator thing that I found for personal growth. It's not going to be the only thing, but it's huge chunk majority. It's how a person fundamentally operates and you can make changes and make change results.
So if people are interested in attending the workshop this weekend, this coming weekend, you still have space available.
[00:51:58.960] Jeremiah Rangel, Guest
We do. We always save a few spots, and we have a couple of venues that we can use for whatever reason. If we get to a certain number, then we can always make a bigger venue to make more room.
