You are not broken. If you want to create a life you love, transform your reality, and manifest miracles with ease, Christopher Michael Duncan’s new book, You’re Not Broken, is for you. It’s time to forget everything you know about the power of manifestation. This book teaches how to connect to the hidden field of information where your intuition, inner instructions, and natural genius are stored, remembering the powerful creator you already are.
A complete system in a simple eight-week plan, this is the first and last book you’ll ever need on manifestation, creation, or self-help.
Drew Appelbaum: Hey Listeners, my name is Drew Appelbaum and I’m excited to be here today with Chris Duncan, author of You’re Not Broken: 5 Steps to Become Superconscious and Activate Your Magic. Chris, thank you for joining, welcome to The Author Hour Podcast.
Christopher Michael Duncan: Thanks Drew, super grateful to be here brother.
Drew Appelbaum: Let’s kick this off, can you give us a rundown of your professional background?
Christopher Michael Duncan: Yeah, absolutely. For me, being in the personal development industry has been a 20-year journey. It started out by wanting to become successful in business and realizing that there were aspects of me that were unable to create the wealth or the abundance that I wanted. I started going to seminars, started going to courses, and really found myself in this desire to become better.
I think it was NLP that really caught my attention first, and that continued into hypnotherapy and EFT and many, many, many different modalities and different training techniques of how to lead someone that can inspire others to be successful.
Something Was Missing
Drew Appelbaum: Now, why was now the time to share the stories in the book. Was there something inspiring out there? Did you have an “aha moment” or something as simple as you had a lot of time on your hands recently because of COVID?
Christopher Michael Duncan: It’s a good question. No, not because of COVID. This book, it wrote itself, it needed to be released. I guess in an industry that is broken, which is a funny thing to say when the title is, You’re Not Broken.
What I mean by that is that I was in a movie with Anthony Robbins and the Dalai Lama about five years ago and I was applying everything that was being told. Diligently, everything. I was teaching and I was leading, I was doing it all and it just became so obvious–this was five years ago, Drew–that it became obvious that what we’re being told, there’s something not right. There’s something that’s missing, and I saw people who are spending 20 or 30 years trying to fix themselves, and trying to improve themselves but they really weren’t having what they desired in their life. It was like, for some reason, it was untouchable to have a certain amount of success.
This was shocking to me as I observed this, and also because I had such a huge crisis in my life. In 2016, my life really did fall apart. My best friend was killed in a motorcycle accident, which led to me basically crumbling and having a business fall apart as well, a multi-million-dollar company that turned into a huge debt and everything was bad. This question led me to this place of going, “Why?”
That question of why–I know all the stuff, I’m applying everything, I’m meditating, I’m eating the right foods, and yet, there I was still unable to enjoy the success that I really desired. It wasn’t like I ever really stopped wanting to be successful, it’s actually that I just continually searched and searched and searched for answers, feeling as though there was always something missing.
Why is this book now? Well, about two and a half years ago, I realized that I really figured it out. That was because I’d moved to the place I most wanted to live in the world, living in paradise in the Gold Coast of Australia, I married the love of my life, I was fit and healthy, and built my company to a five-million-dollar company.
As I mentioned, I got featured in the movie because I was in everything that I wanted to achieve and I was able to do, and that led me to a place of saying, “Wow, there’s something here that I need to teach.” So, I did, as you read in the book, I put on a little seminar to teach the superconscious recode. This little seminar, I didn’t think anything really would happen. In fact, my business was a digital marketing business at the time.
So, I put on the seminar and I brought two women out on stage. This video has now been seen by over 10 million people, and it’s just gone crazy.
I did this little video where I teach a process to remove someone’s biggest fear in a matter of minutes and to be able to help them to realize that it’s them that created that fear, and then they are the ones who are able to remove it.
The video’s quite revealing, it’s about a 15-minute video where I explain and go through the process and this video just went nuts. That’s what led me to write the book because it feels as though in a world that keeps telling you, “You got to fix yourself, you got to be something else, you need to improve, you need to eat this way, you need to think this way, if you want to be successful, you got to be different.”
It seems that that message was everywhere. So, as I started to share a different message to say, “You’re actually not broken. In fact, you’re superconscious.” Then I started seeing the results in my programs that back that up. In fact, some of the results have been amazing, I’ve had four people email me that were legally blind, and that use my process to see again. Now that’s something.
That gets your attention. I had people email me x-ray proof of tumors disappearing and I’m thinking, “Are you saying that’s because of this work?” They would say, “I’ve done nothing else different but do your process.” I had people say, “I’m making more money, I’m happier than I’ve ever been before.” Everybody started saying, “I need this in a consolidated place.”
I started writing a book. That’s how it happened, and it’s been magic. Since releasing that seminar and recording it, putting it online and then saying, “If you guys want more of this, I’m going to have a class that you can come to,” to now, is has been one of the most magical rides you could imagine.
Yeah, the reason why now is the book wrote itself, it needed to be out there.
Drew Appelbaum: Now, the book needed to be out there and you probably had an idea of what the book would be and maybe you had an outline. But during the rewriting process and sometimes by digging deeper into some of the subjects or even deeper into yourself, you’ll come to some major breakthroughs and learnings.
Did you have any of these major breakthroughs or learnings along your writing journey?
Christopher Michael Duncan: In the creation journey, for sure. I mean, the book itself is kind of the last thing that I’ve created. In the last three years, I’ve been teaching and sharing this to tens of thousands of people with my programs, and I really consolidated it there. We have a certification where we teach others to do this work plus, we have a masterclass where every week I get on and I coach and teach. Plus, we do live seminars. I really had the message clear.
The three big things are first is to understand that a person does not need to fix themselves to create what they love.
This is very, very important because we’re told the opposite. Except, this is the one thing that actually will stop a person from being successful. Think about this–most people say, “I want to create X result” let’s say it’s love, let’s say it’s money, or new relationship or some sort of success or fame. They say, “That’s what I want to create.” They say, “When I get that it will be different.” Right? They say it will be better.
Now, what’s interesting is if you actually decide the opposite, which is, “I’m not that and right now is worse”, you see? Because if something needs to be better, then the now has to be worse than that, that’s just how it is, that’s the opposite, so that’s how they orient to the world.
Now, what’s interesting is, because we have an identity, the identity lives in that now. That’s what’s safe. What is safe to the identity is what it’s experiencing, it’s been alive, the identity has an ideal that says, “I just want to keep the body alive.”
Just picture this, let’s use money as an example because most people don’t have a problem with saying, “Hey, I’d like a little bit more money.” They decide, “I’d like to create more money, that would be great, and I would feel abundant. I’d have more choices, I’d have more freedom.” They say, “Right now, I don’t have that level of abundance, I feel scarcity, I feel worried.” That is the identity.
This is what you’re saying, “When I get this, then I’ll feel different.” Now, your identity hears that in a different way, it says, “Everything’s going to change if I have that and I’m not it,” as you start moving towards creating this abundance. At some point, the identity freaks out, it says, “I have to change. There’s something here that’s scary, that‘s new, that’s not allowed.” It pulls on your psyche, it says, “Hey, you’ve never had that before, your family’s never had that before, you’ve never lived that before”.
It throws resistance into your superconscious, into your field that looks like doubt or worry or anxiety or fears. That captures your attention because you cannot create anything that is opposite to your identity, see? The identity is living in scarcity, the result you want is living in abundance, as you move towards that, it’s a set-up.
You get along your journey, the identity throws up some sort of resistance, an opposing force. So, that takes your focus and you go away and you fix that, then you say, “Well I don’t feel good.” You go and get a hypnotherapy class and you suddenly fix your anxiety, or you reach for some prescription medication or you procrastinate or you change the idea.
Whatever it is, you do something to resolve that pull on your psyche that’s coming from the identity, and guess what? That stops you from creating it. A real simple example is someone says, “I’d really like to have more money,” but they have an identity belief that they’re not someone with money.
As they move towards having a bit more money, their belief pops in, “I’m not someone who has money.” Then they feel a tension or a pull to spend it, then they spend it, and they don’t have the money again. This is the same in love, they go for love, but they have a belief that they’re not worthy of love, and so instead of going towards it, they don’t feel worthy so then they go off to go to the gym to try to lose some weight thinking that that’s what they need to do, trying to fix themselves.
The first big clarifying point is that when you try to create something in opposition to the way that you are, you’re never allowed to have it. You’re never allowed to have it. People always come to me and they say, “But Chris, I’m the common denominator in all my failure, I’m the common denominator, I have to fix myself, I have to be different.”
It’s funny because if that was true, if you were the one that needs to be different, well why is it also true that most people don’t have what they love? It’s not that you need to fix yourself. In fact, when you look at very successful people, none of them are perfect, none of them have had to fix themselves. In fact, most of them have all sorts of challenges going on.
If you look at them really, the people we look up to that are very successful in politics, as writers, actors, sports people, none of them had to fix who they were. This addiction that we’re given that we need to improve or fix, actually creates a worse identity. This is the crux.
See, as soon as you go for what you want, then your identity says, “But I’m not that, so let’s fix this part of us, let’s go fix it.” You then create an even worse identity and that’s why this book is so important.
The worse identity is, “I can’t have what I desire the way I am.” That is when people get so lost. “I can’t have what I want the way I am.” They just spend a lifetime trying to figure out, “Well, how do I need to be different to have what I want?” That is really the first clarifying point is to understand that you must not focus on fixing yourself, there’s a different way. There’s a different way.
The Superconscious Work
The first thing about the different way is to realize that you’re not broken, your superconscious awareness, which means above your self-conscious limited perspective, you’re actually a creative energy inhabiting a human body, having a human experience, you’re that creative energy, you are it. There is no limitation that is outside of what you have decided. When you learn how to tune into the superconscious, that’s when you say, “Well, why would I continue having this fear of public speaking, why would I continue to have this fear of money?”
The answer is, well I don’t know so let’s change it. Through the superconscious work that can be changed very easily. That’s the second thing is you’re not broken, you’re superconscious and you are not a victim to anxiety or a victim to overwhelm or victim to not being talented enough. That’s the crazy thing is that when you look at successful people–think about music for example.
It’s not the most talented that has the biggest success. In fact, I know some very, very, very talented musicians and authors that no one knows. I think America saw this. It wasn’t necessarily the best politician that was able to be in charge of the country. It’s something else, it’s different. That’s the third thing, which is how to orient your life to end up manifesting what you desire.
Those are the three things. The first is to understand that it’s not about fixing yourself, it’s about getting in the right structure. The second is your superconscious. The third is there is a way to manifest. That starts by realizing you must be it to see it and I talk about this as the journey. There’s this superconscious journey you must go on to let go of the childish limitation that we’ve been given and then become superconscious. And when you do this, you’re able to simply realize that creating what you love is easy because it doesn’t make you better or worse, and that’s the key.
To manifest things fast, you must have no resistance to any outcome and no desire. The now must actually be more satisfactory than anything else and that’s the key. See, when the identity realizes that there is nothing better than the now, and there’s nothing that needs to be fixed or resolved, it just is, and there’s no reality that could possibly be better or worse than the now, that’s when the identity conflict is resolved and that’s the shift. It is magic.
When people realize that they can have it all now, they open what we call the wizard’s gate, which allows you to access the magnetic moment to truly just pull things into reality fast, and I mean ridiculously fast.
When Dean came to my workshop, he came with big black glasses on and was completely blind. Within three months, he had lost over 80 pounds. Over 80 pounds in three months he had lost, and he regained his eyesight and that’s incredible. But the thing is, I didn’t do it.
I showed him how to access his own power because he doesn’t need me. That was the thing and that’s really what got consolidated Drew, not really with writing the book, more with just teaching and being with people for the last few years. What’s fascinating is somehow the superconscious work took over my other business. I don’t even know how it really happened, and I never set out or intended to be someone that teaches how to consciously create the life you love or to manifest miracles.
I never set out to be that, but somehow, that is what I do. The book wrote itself, you know? The book wrote itself and that’s a really nice thing to say.
The Foundational Information
Drew Appelbaum: Do readers need to prepare themselves in any way before they start the book, and what do you suggest that they do to really get the most out of the book?
Christopher Michael Duncan: Thanks, good question. No, the book is the foundational stuff. It starts off with helping you understand that journey and the things I’ve been sharing at a deep level, better science, better quantum physics, and neuroscience and epigenetics, to allow scientific your mind to get to that. Nothing we’re sharing here is without scientific proof and to get the most out of it, I believe you must read. You must read the whole thing through at least once first and then come back to the exercises.
Some of the exercises are very, very profound. I’d also suggest having a good look at successful people. Really, really think and look at them and realize–I like to use Warren Buffett as an example because he’s in his 90s, one of the richest people on the planet, and healthy. He’s had successful relationships and runs a company. From the outside perspective, it looks like those in his company really enjoy his presence, but he drinks Coca-Cola every day and has McDonald’s every morning, lives in the house that he bought in the 60s, I believe.
He didn’t have to fix himself to have all of that success, you know? We obviously know many musicians, you know, Michael Jackson, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, these sort of people, Amy Winehouse, who we know that were dysfunctional, but it didn’t stop their ability to be creative. We know Lincoln was depressed. Michael Jordan had a gambling addiction, so it is not the part of them that’s dysfunctional that created their success.
See, they’re not living from that. So, I would say examine success. J.K. Rowling wrote the Harry Potter series. When she was writing it, she was a single mother that was on benefits, and she wrote this amazing series, and then she’s a great philanthropist as well. I think she gave away over a billion dollars, which is phenomenal. I don’t know if it’s the bestselling book of all time, but it is up there. And here is the point, it’s not that they went in and fixed the aspects of them that were broken that made them successful. That’s the point.
They were too busy being focused on their way of creating, and they were the way that they are and were able to create the success that they wanted. And it is when you start opening your eyes to it, you see Steve Jobs and you read his book and you realize, hey, he wasn’t the nicest guy to be around, yet he created a trillion-dollar company because it is not the part of them that’s dysfunctional that’s involved in the magic.
When you really start to see that Drew, when you really get that, you realize it’s a different way. The less that I try to work on the part of me that is dysfunctional, and the more that I focus on the part of me that’s a creative genius, the more that will show up.
The more we stay focused on that, the better our life becomes, so I suggest really look at that. There’s a list in the book. I list a lot of very successful creative geniuses and I share a look at that person and look at that person. It’s not because they had to go and fix that they might feel anxious at times, you see? It seems to be such a weird preoccupation and of the last 80 years in society is that we must not feel stressed, or we must not feel anxious, or we must not feel sad.
We must not do this, and you must work out, and you must meditate, and you must sleep this way, and you must, you must, you must. It is so focused on how you must be, yet when you look at the creators, the people who are out there actually creating what they love, they’re not doing that. So, that is my suggestion, because when you see it and you have overwhelming proof, then you know. I need to apply that same process to my life, and that’s what the last part of the book teaches.
Drew Appelbaum: You created this five-step superconscious creator code. You talk about 15 minutes a day is all you need to really practice but what changes can someone who puts the time in, who reads the book and really digs in, what can they expect to see after reading and practicing what they read in the book?
Christopher Michael Duncan: Yeah, so thank you. The five-step process is magic because you do need to reorient the way that your life is structured, and this is about focus, and this is about allowing your old limited perspectives to drop off. Now people can get this confused. They think, “Well Chris, isn’t that problem solving? Isn’t that fixing?” No. There is a very big difference when I say I’m creating myself to be a confident public speaker, it’s a very different focus, and I feel a little bit anxious, so I am going to learn to let go of that.
That is very different than I’m going to fix that I’m anxious. It’s very, very different. I am going to create that I am confident is the focus versus I am going to focus on how I am broken and fix the anxiety. The 15-minute-a-day process, the first three steps of it are about learning to shift the original intention into what you’re creating, so that you’re not in a problem-solving Mr. or Mrs. I need to fix or improve myself reality.
The fourth step is the Rico process. Because we’d had a life and we’ve had experiences, our identity has picked up resistances, beliefs, and distortions to many, many things as we wanted to figure out how the world is, and so we use Carl Jung’s phrase of individuation to describe this, yet none of it is really real. It’s only real to the person, so step four is saying okay, so you’re choosing to create more money or you’re choosing to create a healthier body. Fantastic, that’s great, let’s let go of any resistance until you’re having that now and that’s the Rico, let’s let it go.
The last step is step five is action. It’s ‘what will you do to be that?’ because you must be it to see it. There are two types of action, feminine action, and masculine action, so we really describe a lot of that and how to do the process. 15 minutes a day reorients you to being a creator. It doesn’t matter if you do it in the morning or in the afternoon. It doesn’t matter when you do it but if you spend 15 minutes a day to reorient yourself that is going to allow creation to happen instead of fixing yourself.
We typically have someone work on eight to 10 different end results that they really would love to manifest, and ensure that they are creating it and not just fix it, and so that is what they should expect. They’ll expect their life to flow rather than have this life of battling themselves. That is how it will be.
Drew Appelbaum: Now, are there any other resources that you offer? If somebody goes through the book and they finish the book, is there anything else you could suggest or anything else that you offer?
Christopher Michael Duncan: Yeah, yeah we do. We have lots, my YouTube channel is full of lots and lots of good information so I would definitely say start there. We have a 12-month training called The Magnetic Mind Master Class and we also have a certification for those who really love this work and want to understand how to do it for others too. You’ll find that all on my website but the best place to go to is to search me on YouTube or Google and you will find all of that.
Drew Appelbaum: Well Chris, we just touched on the surface of the book today but I want to say that writing a book, which is going to help folks dig into that and find that superconscious within themselves is no small feat so congratulations on being published.
Christopher Michael Duncan: Thanks.
Everyone is a Powerful Creator
Drew Appelbaum: Now, one question left, hot seat question of course, if readers could takeaway only one thing from the book, what would you want it to be?
Christopher Michael Duncan: That they’re not broken, that they’re powerful beyond anything that they’ve currently been able to experience, and I am powerful, they’re powerful and everyone is a powerful creator. There’s nothing in your life that you haven’t played a role in creating and that’s a very, very important distinction. You don’t need to rely on me, on a coach, on a guru, on a psychiatrist. You don’t need to rely on any of that, you are a powerful creative energy that once you learn how to reconnect to that power, and good power, and loving power, you simply have it the way you choose it.
The hard thing is to acknowledge that we all had a childhood, and in that childhood, we had to rely on the power of adults. Unfortunately, many of us didn’t have adults that were in their own power. They were victims themselves, sometimes perpetrators, yet they never ever even half-scratched your true nature. You are a superconscious powerful creator. Nothing that’s happened in your life, no matter how horrendous it has been, has touched that aspect of you, the part of you that is creating your body, that is creating your life, and that could change anything. You’re powerful, you’re superconscious, and don’t let anyone tell you anything else.
You’re not broken.
Drew Appelbaum: Chris, this has been a pleasure and I’m really excited for people to check out the book. Everyone, the book is called You’re Not Broken, and you can find it on Amazon. Chris, besides checking out the book, where can people connect with you?
Christopher Michael Duncan: I’d say social media is the best place. Go to YouTube, go to social media, I have a website, I think the name of the website changes so I don’t know what, when people are listening to this but do just search my name into Google and you’ll find your way to the right places. It’s all there. Now, the best thing to do because my name is quite an un-unique name, just type in Christopher Michael Duncan into Google and you’ll find it.
Drew Appelbaum: Chris, thank you so much for coming on the show today, and best of luck with your new book.
Christopher Michael Duncan: Thanks, Drew.
