Read my honest review of Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance to find out.
Summary: My verdict in a nutshell
Whilst I found elements of the marketing — particularly the grand promises of instant and effortless transformation — a little bit oversimplified and lofty, ultimately this course still offers good value.
It presents proven techniques that — provided you do the work — can drastically improve your mindset that in turn create powerful transformation in all areas of your life.
What is Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance?
Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance is a Mindvalley program that promises to subconsciously reprogram new positive habits, thoughts, and emotions to shape you into the person you want to be. The course covers several areas of life, from relationships to body and finances.
It’s probably not a new concept to you — change your mindset, change your life.
It’s essentially about how your beliefs shape your entire life. The program encourages you to root out those which are limiting you and replace them with better serving ones.
It highlights how negative beliefs are not true, they exist only in your mind. Yet most of us behave like these made-up viewpoints are fact. The real kicker is that the vast majority of them aren’t even yours — they were given to you by your parents, teachers, employers, and all the people you meet along the way in life.
Rather than external circumstances, it is always your mindset that holds you back. Some people may argue that’s not true. For example, your mindset won’t give you a better voice if you are tone-deaf and your biggest dream is to be a famous singer. My reply to that would be that you clearly have never heard the Spice Girls acapella — and they were the biggest selling girl group of all time!
This program invites you to confront your excuses. You are reminded that there are examples everywhere of people who overcame the exact same circumstances you use to hold yourself back.
Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance says that rather than focusing on just the symptom, it treats the core. Instead of struggling to change your behaviour, it targets the thoughts creating that behaviour.
Who is Marisa Peer?

With nearly 30 years of experience as a therapist, her resume is certainly impressive. She includes rockstars, Hollywood celebs, Olympic athletes, powerful CEOs, and even royalty on her client list.
So perhaps it’s no wonder that she is so confident throughout the program, boasting of the countless issues that Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy has helped people to resolve in their lives.
What is Mindvalley?
Mindvalley is an online education platform which centers around personal development.
It wants to teach people how to lead healthier and happier lives by arming them with the knowledge to do so — which we simply weren’t taught in school.
The mission of Mindvalley’s founder Vishen Lakhiani is to help raise human consciousness by sharing the latest cutting-edge techniques from the world’s best teachers.
Their online programs are called “quests”. There are currently over 30+ quests available on a wide range of topics that cover the body, mind, performance, soul, work, relationships, entrepreneurship, and parenting.
Why I wanted to do Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance
Particularly over the last 10 years, I’d say I’ve been committed to a journey of self-discovery and self-improvement. I’ve already done a lot of reflection and deep work around my mindset and beliefs.
But no matter how “too blessed to be stressed” we manage to become in life, I think it’s always going to be a continuous work in progress.
I’m not sure if there is a finish line. I suspect that for every self-limiting belief we are able to bring awareness to and release, there will likely be more hiding out of sight.
In fact, just the other day when a good friend told me she had landed a new client, bringing in another 5 thousand dollars a month to her business, I felt an instant pang of jealousy that gave the telltale signs of a limiting belief somewhere inside.
After following that feeling I quickly saw my lack mentality reflected back at me. She had something I wanted and the fact my gut reaction was one of envy suggested, on some unconscious level, I must think that I cannot have the same seemingly effortless wealth.
We all have our own unique areas of life where, for whatever reason, we still find it hard to believe we can “have it all” — whether it’s in love, finances, career, health.
Our past experiences form limitations that seem to act as blocks. The more we can release these, the more we can believe that whatever we want is possible for us. How utterly life-changing would that be?!
Who is Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance for?
If you want to cultivate a stronger mindset, healthier beliefs that work to your advantage and create a more optimistic outlook.
Anyone looking for an easy-fix. This is one of those personal transformation programs promising none of the efforts for all of the reward. It’s a total contrast to the last quest I reviewed — The Habit of Ferocity by Steven Kotler —which guaranteed suffering along the way. This course says that with a bit of enjoyable work you will get big results from very little output.
If you feel stuck. Perhaps you want to change but you don’t know how to. Maybe you’ve tried other things but nothing seems to work or even if it worked for a while it wore off eventually.
If you know that you’re guilty of negative self-talk or are constantly creating excuses for what is standing in the way of positive change.
Who might not like Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance
Whilst some scepticism is to be expected, I think if you are deeply sceptical about these techniques it might sabotage the work. I must admit there was one point when Marisa Peer said:
“You’ll have so many lightbulb moments where you say, Oh now I understand why I held myself back. And in the understanding, well I’m over that now”.
It gave me a good hearty chuckle. I couldn’t help it, even if she is completely right, just the thought that we could decide to just “get over” long-established negative patterns of thoughts and behaviours, did seem a little comical. Do I believe that I can? Yes. Do I believe I will? Well, that’s another matter. I am open to the possibility though and I think it’s important that you are if you want to get the most from this program.
If you think things like visualization and vision boards are personal-development “fluff”— this course does use those kinds of methods.
People who won’t make 30 minutes a day to do the work. Sadly the course isn’t that magical that you literally don’t have to do anything.
Scepticism about Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance
I feel like confronting some of the big claims made by this program deserves a little section in the review.
When I first read the promises Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance made about how easy it was all going to be, it rang some alarm bells. I found it challenging to believe.
At the same time, I also am 100% willing to hold my hands up and admit that could easily be a self-limiting belief in itself. I learned from a young age that in “real life” fairytales don’t come true and rewards require sacrifice and hard work.
I was therefore open to there being another, better way. I recognize that my body does 1001 things behind the scenes every single day, without me needing to control or work at it. If this course can tap into that innate ability, then I am prepared to release my self-limiting belief that it can’t be that simple.
Research shows the miraculous impact that belief has on our bodies: proving it is capable of healing “incurable” illness or injury. Conversely, negative expectations have been highlighted as having the opposite effect. In fact, it’s estimated that up to 97% of reported pharmaceutical side effects are not caused by the drug itself but by belief.
I think what I’m getting at here is that if you want this to work for you and believe it can, then it is far more likely to do so. Part of the very essence of this program is that the more you believe good things are coming your way, the more you behave like they are and so the more likely they will.
How much does Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance cost?
Right now Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance is available to buy individually on Mindvalley’s website for $349. For that price, you get lifetime digital access to the program.
So if you think you might want to check out some of Mindvalley’s other courses at some point, it is definitely worth considering this before you buy.

How does Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance actually work?
Unlike Uncompromised life — Marisa Peer’s other quest on Mindvalley — this one is more focused on reprogramming your subconscious mind for abundance and success in key areas of your life: health, love, and wealth.
Apparently, by creating new neural pathways in your mind you undergo change on a far deeper cellular level.
The thing about hypnotherapy that intrigues me is that it seems like it’s offering to cut out all the hard work that we usually expect change to involve.
Marisa Peer claims that:
“Even past traumas and unwanted external influences are erased, giving you true freedom to design a life of abundant joy, fulfillment, and wellbeing.”
When I was growing up, my only experience of hypnotherapy was those TV shows with audience volunteers pretending to ride invisible horses or just generally making fools of themselves after receiving suggestions. The hypnosis in this program couldn’t be further from that image.
Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy works on the premise that your brain is a transmitter which takes information and turns it into your reality — aka you act in a way that is consistent with what you believe.
The audio tracks you get during this program are designed over time to put in good suggestions and wipe over negative ones. Or in science speak, it uses neuroplasticity to communicate with the mind and get it to rewire itself by forming new neural connections.

How is Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance structured?

The quest focuses on four key areas: mindset, health, wealth, and relationships. This is divided into 5 chapters (one per week):
Part 1: Foundation For Abundance & Results
Part 2: Processes For Mindset Reprogramming
Part 3: Mastering The Mental Power Of Health
Part 4: Cutting Through Mental Wealth Blocks
Part 5: Improving and Strengthening Your Relationships

You receive a total of 5 hypnotherapy tracks — each around 15 minutes long — designed to reprogram your mind.
The pros and cons of Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance
I liked that the notion of abundance wasn’t just focused on money. The program promotes wealth as a state rather than a figure in your bank account. Your mindset, health, and relationships are of equal importance in the equation of abundant life.
Bringing greater awareness to self-limiting beliefs and cultivating a healthy mindset has undoubtedly been the biggest positive influence in my life. For that reason alone, I think introducing people to the power of their own beliefs and teaching them how to vastly improve their outlook is an incredible thing.
The program feels very easy to fit around daily life, with only approximately 30 minutes required a day.
This course says it will be fun and easy to take and it does feel like that. The content is motivating, engaging and interactive — with videos, audio tracks, quizzes, and journaling exercises.
There’s an online community to share your experiences with in the form of the “Tribe” — who are other participants that signed up at the same time. Apparently when you commit to a group your chances of success go up by 80%.
Regardless of long term results, it offers a quick motivational feel-good boost to your day.
The most significant con is that results may not be as instantaneous as you hope. It is explained that change can happen in three ways: instantaneously, accumulatively (over time), or retroactively (you even don’t realize you’ve changed until you look back).
During one of the Q+A coaching calls – Quite a few people asked the same question about how to use the hypnotherapy audio correctly which suggests it isn’t clear enough in the course itself.
Is Rapid Transformational Hypnotherapy for Abundance worth it and does it work?
Will the results be quite as instantaneous as it is suggested? Perhaps for you, they may be, but I definitely seem to be someone who changes over time rather than in an instant.
What is most important though, is that the techniques taught here do work — even if it takes a while to sink in. I also sincerely believe that giving yourself the gift of a better mindset is the best investment you can make in life.
Not only does it improve your inner reality: how you feel and react to life, but that in turn shapes the circumstances of your external reality: with greater confidence and self-belief to go after what you deserve. This program offers you a comprehensive framework to do that, led by an experienced and acclaimed trainer.
