so my first sub purchase here was Emperor V3…and I was listening on set-forget while working (I work customer service from home) and my intent was to slowly and gradually get the Emperor mindset whilst working the day job. With the idea being either building my own side business or ramping my hypnosis practice up.
WELL…I found after a lot of testing that Emperor makes me far more likely to just quit working early for the day.
So I got Ascended Mogul…which is usually find during shifts to listen to…as it makes me more productive in general for job-related duties (lol I said duties). But then I feel like I’m wasting my time by not listening to Emperor.
I ended up trying a stack of 2X AscMogul and 1X Emperor on looping shuffle.
Was fine for a bit, then suddenly got really angsty and quit for the day.
After I clocked out, I then thought “hmmm”…and looked at VLC…Yep…right in the middle of Emperor.
So I’ve found after much trial-and-error that I can’t listen to Emperor during shifts if I have any intention of keeping my job. I’m actually on probation for attendance issues stemming from my dislike of the work itself.
So yes it is a balancing act and all I can say is no matter what you’re listening to, when you get weird emotional responses, or get reconciliation or flu-like effects, take note of which sub is playing and the timestamp.
I bring up the timestamp thing because I was listening to Emperor V4 on my day off on loop…and I noticed at certain times I suddenly felt the urge to get up and go put my dishes away…or do any sort of little household chore.
I finally realized it was happeing at the point where there was about 12 minutes left in EV4! Not sure if @SaintSovereign or @Fire can speak to that. Not that I’d expect them to give away any trade secrets of course.
I finally followed a friend’s advice and forced myself to sit through that last 12 mins of EV4 for a few loops to make sure I wasn’t missing out on anything.
